Lilith Astaroth on Women of Metal Radio 8/17/2013 by Jayson Shell on Mixcloud

SORROWSEED is a dark melodic metal manifestation of twisted prophecies that once tormented the minds of Morte McAdaver and Thomas Cyranowski. Now the Extinction Prophecies are unleashed to wreak cacophonous havoc upon the ears of the masses.

Lilith Astaroth: The human manifestation of the Reaping Willow, the goddess Lilith leads the Order with her nightmarish, phlegmy Screams of Torture.

Morte McAdaver: One of two creatures to survive the dissolution of the previous order, he shall provide many Murderous Axes to the faces of feeble human filth.

Defiler Thane: First of the new souls, his Thumping Lines shall cause the earth to quake and cities to crumble.

Prometheus B. Subrick: The final of new souls (or lack thereof in his case), this failed laboratory creation infects the children of the human species with Percussive Nightmares.

The Phantom Cyr: The second of two depraved beings to survive the Order’s original demise, this disturbed conductor’s Orchestral Depravities haunt mankind’s collective conscience.

The Order has risen, and will stop at nothing until this world is at its end.

Sorrowseed’s full-length 2CD debut, “The Extinction Prophecies” is now available on iTUNES, CDBABY, and eMUSIC. More details at www.sorrowseed.com!

Leeja Stark (STARK) On Women of Metal Show 9/14/2013

 

Leeja Stark
Leeja Stark

Leeja Stark from our September 2013 Band of the Month (STARK) joins Jayson Shell for a live conversation this Saturday 9/21/2013 only on The Women of Metal Radio Show on Insane Realm Radio

STARK is an electronic/industrial rock band based in Pittsburgh, PA. The band was formed by songwriter Leeja Stark for a dark dancey sound.

Leeja has had many songwriting collaborations but STARK is really about unleashing the dark side of her songwriting. Lyrics about love and hate, supernatural beings, sex, and violence hold their own within the synth driven beats.

STARK’s songwriter Leeja had the lyrics and melody’s. The dark dancey sound that evolved just seemed the best way to bring the words to life. When other musicians became interested, the band evolved further becoming industrial, heavy, dark and dancey.

LACUNA COIL Begins Recording New Album

Italian heavy rockers LACUNA COIL have entered the studio with producer Jay Baumgardner (P.O.D., SEVENDUST, EVANESCENCE, PAPA ROACH) to begin recording their new album for an early 2014 release via Century Media Records.

After the first days of recording, the band is already happy with the magic happening in the studio.

Cristina Scabbia (vocals): “I am so excited to work on new stuff…

“I am sure a lot of people will be mesmerized by the cinematic vibe of the new album that’s underway.

“I’m very happy to have the chance to work with Jay. Not only is he a pro in what he does, but I am just loving the fact we are going to experiment with new sounds and are getting a different point of view about our art. We’re swamped with the music already…

LACUNA COIL is back, baby!!!”

Andrea Ferro (vocals): “We met Jay a few years ago in L.A. and had a really positive feeling about him, as he has produced and mixed some of my favourite records and some very relevant rock/metal albums.

“We have decided to work with him, because he has the ability to work together with the band towards a common vision without driving the band away from their sound.

“In the studio, there is the right energy that allows common people to achieve uncommon results!”

Cristiano “Pizza” Migliore (guitar): “Yeah, we’re very excited about finally recording new songs — and I can assure you that the new stuff kicks ass!”

LACUNA COIL plans on completing the recording sessions for the new album before joining the “Tragic Illusion Tour” that will celebrate PARADISE LOST‘s 25th anniversary. A few days earlier, they will perform at the Metal Female Voices Fest in Belgium.

LACUNA COIL‘s latest album, “Dark Adrenaline”, sold around 20,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 15 on The Billboard 200 chart. It marked the band’s second CD with producer Don Gilmore (LINKIN PARK, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE) at the helm.

“We changed producers on our last album, ‘Shallow Life’, and we wanted to work with Don,” Scabbia told KNAC.COM. “I think that we wanted to change producers mainly to see what we could do with a different person. A producer is much like a teacher and we wanted to learn something new and we found that our goals and Don‘s were much the same. When listening to ‘Dark Adrenaline’, I can say that there is so much different. We are more experienced now and more confident in our sound and we get inspired to try to do more with each new record.”

Halestorm Announce New Release, ReAniMate 2.0: The CoVeRs eP

Halestorm

Halestorm have unveiled details of their new EP, ReAniMate 2.0: The CoVeRs eP, which will arrive on October 15. The EP marks the acclaimed hard-rock band’s follow-up to 2011’s ReAniMate: The CoVeRs eP. As with its predecessor, ReAniMate 2.0: The CoVeRs eP sees Halestorm putting their distinctive spin on a eclectic collection of classic songs, including, this time, tracks by Judas Priest, AC/DC, Pat Benatar, Fleetwood Mac, Marilyn Manson, and Daft Punk (see track list below).

“Like our first ReAniMate EP, the songs included here are a collection of both our favorite songs and songs to challenge ourselves,” said Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale. “We decided to go more ‘bare bones’ with this EP, meaning minimal production with live, gritty performances. We recorded this EP the week of the Grammys, so the excitement and debauchery you hear through your speakers is very real. We hope all our fans have as much fun with ReAniMate: 2.0 as we did!”

In the meantime, Halestorm are touring across North America, with a variety of headline and festival dates scheduled through early October. From there, the band will cross the Atlantic for a major European arena trek alongside Alter Bridge. Additionally, the band just announced a run of North American dates finishing out the year–see www.halestormrocks.com/tour for up-to-the-minute news and ticket information.
