ARCH ENEMY Featuring Guitarist JEFF LOOMIS: Fan-Filmed Footage Of Tilburg Concert

Fan-filmed video footage of ARCH ENEMY‘s December 4 performance at 013 in Tilburg, The Netherlands can be seen below.

ARCH ENEMY last month parted ways with guitarist Nick Cordle and replaced him with Jeff Loomis (ex-NEVERMORE). Loomis is making his live debut with ARCH ENEMY on the band’s European tour, which kicked off on November 26.

Said Loomis: “I’m very excited to be playing with ARCH ENEMY.

“[ARCH ENEMY guitarist] Michael Amott and I have stayed in contact over the years since we toured together when I was playing in NEVERMORE. Not only do I admire his guitar playing and songwriting, but I also consider him a close friend. To be able to share the stage with Michael, Sharlee, Daniel and Alissa is something I’m really looking forward to.

“2015 is going to be a great year… See you all on tour!”

Said Michael Amott: “The prospect of working with Jeff Loomis moving forward is truly awesome!

Jeff Loomis is one of the best guitar players in the metal world, in my opinion, as well as being a longtime friend. I look forward to tearing it up on stages around the world together as we continue on the ‘War Eternal’ touring cycle throughout all next year and beyond!”

ARCH ENEMY played its first show with new singer Alissa White-Gluz on May 23 at Turbohalle in Bucharest, Romania. Angela Gossow, who joined ARCH ENEMY in 2000 and made her debut on the now-classic “Wages Of Sin” (2001), stepped down as frontwoman and is focusing on management, while Alissa is taking her place.

ARCH ENEMY‘s new album, “War Eternal”, sold around 8,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 44. The CD was released on June 10 in North America via Century Media Records. The cover artwork was created by Costin Chioreanu.

ARCH ENEMY: ‘War Eternal’ Video Featuring New Singer ALISSA WHITE-GLUZ

archenemywarternalvid_638The official video for “War Eternal”, the title track of the ninth studio album from Swedish / American / Canadian metallers ARCH ENEMY, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company, who has previously worked with DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL, IN FLAMES, SONIC SYNDICATE and KAMELOT, among others.

Due in North America on June 10 via Century Media Records, “War Eternal” will introduce a new member to ARCH ENEMY‘s ranks: Alissa White-Gluz, former vocalist of Canadian extreme metallers THE AGONIST. Angela Gossow, who joined ARCH ENEMY in 2000 and made her debut on the now classic “Wages Of Sin” (2001), has stepped down as frontwoman and will focus on management, while Alissa takes her place.

Alissa White-Gluz previously stated about her addition to the ARCH ENEMY lineup: “I am very honored and happy to announce a new chapter in my life and musical career beginning now; I have joined forces with one of my all-time favourite and globally respected bands, ARCH ENEMY. ‘Wages Of Sin’ was the first metal album I ever bought, and it was love at first listen.

“It is not often that you get a phone call from your favorite band asking you to join! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such amazingly talented musicians whom I also consider great friends. I look forward to being able to write and perform at a whole new level now with ARCH ENEMY! Music is forever, metal is limitless and this is only the beginning!”

“War Eternal” was mixed by Jens Bogren (OPETH, PARADISE LOST, KREATOR) at Fascination Street in Örebro, Sweden.

ARCH ENEMY will debut new material on a short eastern European tour before the album is released; this trek will then be followed by an extensive run of European summer festivals, including Sweden Rock Festival, Wacken Open Air and many more. A full headlining tour in North America and Europe will take place in fall/winter 2014.

ARCH ENEMY in 2012 amicably parted ways with guitarist Christopher Amott and replaced him with American musician Nick Cordle (ARSIS).

 

HEAVEN THE AXE – “Good Things Come To Those Who Hate” [Official Music Video]

“…fucking hell. watch out for the new Heaven The Axe single…I was privvy enough to hear it and it knocked my fucking head off. Well done Phoebe Pinnock and Steve Watts”
– Liv Repas, HEAVY MUSIC MAGAZINE, Publisher

“FUCK YEAH!!
 I got fucking goose bumps when I watched this.
Then I watched it again.
You have a room full of dirty sweaty nasty looking metal heads (including different drummers) ready to tear your face off.
Then you have Phoebe up front to take that edge off, until she proceeds to spit venom and scare you into submission.
Throw in two brutal guest singers in Youngy from King Parrot and Danimal from Frankenbok and.. well.. just watch.
Then hit replay and watch it again.
Australia, stand up and be proud!”
Higgo, Anchor Triple M/Triple M Distortion

‘Wow, this Melbourne band have taken a serious dose of the angry pills, and gone several miles into left field. They released their debut album a couple of years back, and have now hit back with a brand new single. And they’ve taken the very gutsy step of releasing just about the least commercial track you could possibly imagine from them.

Not only is it angry to the point of being quite vicious, not only does lead singer Phoebe Pinnock sound like she’s about to kill someone as she screeches out her vocals, not only have they enlisted the help of two of the most out of control vocalists in Aussie heavy music to sing some of the backing vocals (Matt Young from King Parrot and Dan from Frankenbok), but the arrangement of the song is quite off-kilter. And yet it still seems to flow very nicely indeed.

It’s not just a snarling, angry song however. Pinnock’s schizophrenic vocal delivery intersperses sexy, sassy melodic lines amidst the angst, and the blistering lead guitar lines provide further colour. It’s a song of stark contrasts, a song of fury and beauty all at once.

This is not the song you’d expect from a female fronted heavy rock to metal act to release as a first single from a new album, and that is a truly wonderful thing”

KARI RUESLATTEN Releases Video For ‘Why So Lonely’ Single Featuring NIGHTWISH Mainman Tuomas Holopainen

KARI RUESLATTEN, founding member of the progressive doom metal band THE 3RD AND THE MORTAL, will release her fifth solo album, and first in nearly a decade, in February 2014 on Despotz Records. To whet the appetite of fans around the globe, Rueslåtten has launched a music video for the album’s first single, ‘Why So Lonely’.

‘Why So Lonely’ originally appeared on the 1994 The 3rd And The Mortal album, Tears Laid In Earth, and has been rearranged by Rueslåtten with the help of Tuomas Holopainen (NIGHTWISH) on piano and keys, Jostein Ansnes on guitar and Rune Arnesen on drums.

“I decided to look back in time and make a cover version of one of my favorite songs from the early years with The 3rd and the Mortal,” said Rueslåtten. “In a way, it can be seen as a tribute to those who have showed interest in my music through so many years. What really triggered me to start making music again were all the kind messages I got from fans around the world asking me when new music would surface. I am most humbled and grateful to find that there are people out there who have followed my music since my early beginning, back in The 3rd and the Mortal-days, and through all my solo-albums.”

Rueslåtten’s natural talent, combined with classical training and roots in the Norwegian folk music tradition, has resulted in a voice that is difficult to describe. Her music has been compared with artists like TORI AMOS, KATE BUSH and BJORK, maybe not necessarily because the music sounds very similar, but because of each artists’ distinctive vocal delivery.

Rueslåtten will start the recording of her brand new, 10-song album this fall. The album will be recorded in Øra Studio in Trondheim and produced by Jostein Ansnes, one of Norway’s best guitarists, known for his work with the critically acclaimed Norwegian band DADAFON with singer Kristin Asbjørnsen.

HALESTORM: Fan-Filmed Video Footage Of HEAVY MTL Performance

halestormmtl2013_638

Fan-filmed video footage of HALESTORM performing the song “Freak Like Me” on August 10 at the Heavy MTL festival in Montreal, Quebec, Canada can be seen below.

HALESTORM has issued an official music video for the song “Here’s To Us”, the latest single off the band’s 2012 sophomore album, “The Strange Case Of…” Singer Lzzy Hale told Rolling Stone, “We wrote this song literally as our personal anthem. We’ve been through a lot together as a band, and we’ve learned to celebrate the low times as well as the highs. It’s about toughin’ out and respecting the journey for us, and that’s how we have kept it together as a foursome for 10 years! Here’s to us!”

The band recently recorded an alternate version of the track featuring guest appearances from Slash, SHINEDOWN‘s Brent Smith, ALTER BRIDGE‘s Myles Kennedy, DEVICE‘s David Draiman and others. Hale told The Pulse Of Radio that that version of the song was all about unity in the rock scene. “Everyone always thinks everybody’s in competition,” she said. “‘Oh, you know, we’re in competition for the charts!’ We’re in competition like, ‘Did you have a better set than me? Are you a better player?’ And it was important for all of us to show that none of that matters. We’re all in this together.”

“Here’s To Us” was previously covered on a February 2012 episode of the hit television show “Glee”.

The song is the fourth single from “The Strange Case Of…” , following “Love Bites (So Do I)” , “I Miss The Misery” and “Freak Like Me”. HALESTORM won the Grammy for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance in February for the chart-topping “Love Bites (So Do I)” .

The band heads to Japan this week for two shows there before returning to the U.S. and starting a new round of late summer/early fall tour dates on August 23 in Palmer, Alaska.
