CAVALERA CONSPIRACY New Album Coming In November 2017

CAVALERA CONSPIRACY led by brothers and founding SEPULTURA members Max and Iggor Cavalera have unveiled first details about the release of their fourth studio album titled “Psychosis“. The upcoming record is set for release on November 17th 2017 on Napalm Records and is produced by longtime friend Arthur Rizk in Phoenix, Arizona.

Max Cavalera in a recent interview with Metal Wani:
“The album right now is finished. It was produced by Arthur Rizk, our friend and a great producer –  an upcoming, underground producer. And he did a great job. I love the record. There are nine songs. We’ve got one song with Justin from GODFLESH –  just a great NAILBOMB, GODFLESH, CAVALERA kind of song. The rest is all pure thrash madness. And we had it mastered a couple of days ago by Joel Grind from TOXIC HOLOCAUST; he mastered the album. And it’s great, man. It’s a beast of an album. I think a lot of people are are gonna be surprised when they hear it. It’s, for me, the best of all the CAVALERA albums, my favorite one. And it’s got the same intensity and energy of the old stuff like ‘Beneath The Remains’ and ‘Arise’. So a lot of people are gonna be happy to hear that.”

Just recently Max and Iggor have also left a message to their fans and the worldwide metal community with a first teaser and greetings from the studio. Check it out in the video below.

CAVALERA CONSPIRACY NEW ALBUM! “Psychosis” Coming In November 2017!

The brothers Max and Iggor Cavalera formed the legendarily trailblazing heavy metal band SEPULTURA as teenagers together in 1984. Across six studio albums the Brazilian punishers perfected the art of darkness and extreme music with thrash classics such as Beneath the Remains, Arise and Chaos AD, while exploring the underbelly of third world political issues and broadening the genre’s horizons with an exploration of indigenous culture, culminating with the landmark Roots album in 1996. A decade after Max left SEPULTURA and meanwhile released seven successfull records with SOULFLY, the two brothers got back together in 2006 to form CAVALERA CONSPIRACY: A bold testament to the talent and power these two possess together. An invigorating mixture of speed and aggression, finest thrash power and the fiercest riffage.

Get ready for one of the most heaviest and hotly anticipated metal records of 2017, coming this November on Napalm Records, when the mighty CAVALERA CONSPIRACY will strike back this Fall!

First Linkin Park Official Statement About The Passing Of Chester Bennington

Last Thursday, the world learned about the unfortunate tragic death via suicide of Linkin Park’s frontman Chester Bennington.

While the band officially cancelled their tour, Linkin Park Official Statement about the death of their frontman Chester Bennington was posted only today. The band posted the following on their Facebook page:

Linkin Park Official Statement

Dear Chester,

Our hearts are broken. The shockwaves of grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened.

You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized. In the past few days, we’ve seen an outpouring of love and support, both public and private, from around the world. Talinda and the family appreciate it, and want the world to know that you were the best husband, son, and father; the family will never be whole without you.

Talking with you about the years ahead together, your excitement was infectious. Your absence leaves a void that can never be filled—a boisterous, funny, ambitious, creative, kind, generous voice in the room is missing. We’re trying to remind ourselves that the demons who took you away from us were always part of the deal. After all, it was the way you sang about those demons that made everyone fall in love with you in the first place. You fearlessly put them on display, and in doing so, brought us together and taught us to be more human. You had the biggest heart, and managed to wear it on your sleeve.

Our love for making and performing music is inextinguishable. While we don’t know what path our future may take, we know that each of our lives was made better by you. Thank you for that gift. We love you, and miss you so much.

Until we see you again,

LP

GUNS N’ ROSES Excited About Working On New Album

GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Richard Fortus has told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in a new interview that he is looking forward to recording a studio album with the partially reunited classic lineup of the band. “Everyone is excited about it,” he said. “There’s a really magical thing now with the band. It feels like a new band. It feels like the best version since I joined, and it’s the most fun for me. There’s so much excitement around it.”

Since it began in April 2016, the tour has grossed $230 million and counting.”

It’s bigger than anything I’ve ever experienced,” Fortus said. “Doing multiple nights at a stadium is a mindfuck. It’s hard to get your head around that level of craziness. Fans are just so rabid for it.

Fortus said in another interview that the current lineup of GUNS N’ ROSES — which features classic lineup members Slash (guitar), Duff McKagan (bass) and Rose backed by FortusFerrer, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and new second keyboardist Melissa Reese — has begun “assembling ideas” for a new studio album.

Fortus, who joined GUNS N’ ROSES in 2001 and became the band’s longest-serving post-Slash guitarist, spoke about the possibility of new music from GN’R during an interview with the new “StageLeft” podcast.

He said: “We haven’t started recording anything. I mean, when I say that, as far as in the studio, doing an album… We’ve been recording a lot of stuff,  just ideas, sort of assembling ideas, but not going into a studio and actually tracking a new record.

“Asked if he thinks a new GN’R album will happen, Fortus said: “Yeah, I do. It’s sort of too good not to happen at this point — that’s how I feel about it. This band is really a force right now, and I definitely hope that we do, and I think we’re all sort of counting on it, and we’re also planning on it.

Fortus was also full of praise for GUNS singer Axl Rose, saying that “the genius of Axl is his ability to assemble songs from different parts and make them feel cohesive as a song. And I’ve never seen anybody able to do that in the same way.

“A St. Louis native, Fortus got his big break when his band PALE DIVINE opened for THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS. This led to Fortus forming the band LOVE SPIT LOVE with PSYCHEDELIC FURS frontman Richard Butler and future GN’R drummer Frank Ferrer. In 2000, Fortus and Ferrer became touring members of the reformed PSYCHEDELIC FURS before Fortus hooked up with GUNS N’ ROSESFerrer himself joined GN’R in 2006.

GUNS kicked off its long-rumored and long-awaited reunion tour in April 2016 with a club show in Hollywood and appearances in Las Vegas and at California’s Coachella festival.

Pantera Emojis Out Now On iOS, Soon On Android

“Are you talking to me?!” Before you walk on home, boy, we’ve got some great news for Pantera fans who just feel helplessly limited by the current emoji offerings on mobile devices. Sure, the devil horns are nice (and could potentially fall by the wayside pending the results of a certain trademark application filed by Gene Simmons earlier this month), but how about something with a little more gusto? Perhaps socking someone in the face a la Vulgar Display of Power‘s cover?
Well, now it’s all possible and your text messages will have “Strength Beyond Strength” when you send your friends these official Pantera emojis (images below), which are out now on iOS and arriving in September on Android through Emoji Fame. Want to jam with your buds? Let them know by sending them an emoji of Dimebag Darrell‘s Razorback guitar and a stack of amps! Looking to get rowdy on a Friday night? A couple Black Tooth Grins should let everyone know what your intentions are!

In May of last year, Emoji Fame released a series of Zakk Wylde icons, so now you can reunite two of metal’s most legendary guitar players right on your phone and set them up to trade guitar licks like the old days. And how about their legendary drinking days? Wylde’s abstained from alcohol in recent years, but a drink can be shared between the two in the digital realm. Cheers!

Get more details on the Pantera emojis and purchase them at iTunes.

Musically, the surviving members of Pantera have remained incredibly busy lately with Philip Anselmo involved in several projects and Vinnie Paul maintaining focus on Hellyeah. Meanwhile, Rex Brown is looking at new horizons and is on the verge of releasing his debut solo album, Smoke on This, which will be out July 28 through eOne. Listen to the new cut “Train Song” here.

JAY WUD Announce Third Album And Release New Single

Dubai-based band Jay Wud announced the release date of their third album, “Transitions“, which is due on the 30th of June, also releasing a new single from the album called “Empire” that serves as a great introduction to the band’s mix of heavy metal tunes and flamboyant rock. Jay Wud

Fronted by Lebanese singer/guitarist and namesake Jay Wud who is known for his powerful vocals and his scorching metal-tinged hard rock riffs. With members from Serbia and Latvia, their Middle Eastern success has seen them support the likes of Guns N’ Roses, Mötley Crüe, and Skunk Anansie, and become headliners in their own right.

With the help of an impressive crowdfunding campaign that raised over $30,000 (we shared about it >here<), they were able to complete recording “Transitions” with Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson (Seether, My Chemical Romance, Theory of a Deadman) in Los Angeles.
This third JAY WUD album marks a new beginning for the band as they venture into much darker, heavier, and more explorative territory.

Pre-Order “Transitions” From iTunes

Listen to Jay Wud’s “Empire” below:

Lyrics:

This empire of fucking thieves
deceiving you as they sell you shattered dreams
compulsive liars, bending truth
retribution has to come from me and you

you will fall down, wither and fade away for good
your time is done now, wither and fade away you should

extinction is their own fate
rise up, deny and break this fucked up state
redemption, are we blind ?
we don’t belong , we have been left behind

you will fall down, wither and fade away for good
your time is done now, wither and fade away you should

thieves
fucking thieves

you will fall down, wither and fade away for good
your time is done now, wither and fade away you should
