Rage - 'To Live And To Die' (official video)

Well, I just heard your news, so sad
Now, I just can`t get your story out of head
You don´t deserve such bitter fate
You had no chance to turn around, now it`s too late

Out of my head
Now it`s too late `cause you are dead
I`ve always known that our world is rarely fair
But sometimes tragedies, they drive me to despair

It`s to live and to die
To laugh and to cry
A wink of your eye
To live and to die
To live and die

We are just guests on earth, you know
The more we feel we`re safe the faster it gets lost
How many hours, days and years
We never know the story`s end, how many tears

Out of my head
Now it`s too late `cause you are dead
It always looks coincidental to the eye
Or is our story written, is it all decided?

To live and to die
To laugh and to cry
A wink of your eye
To live and to die
Yeah, to live and die

To live and to die
To laugh and to cry
A wink of your eye
To live and to die
Yeah, to live and die

To live and to die
To laugh and to cry
A wink of your eye
To live and to die
Yeah, to live and die



Ep έξι τραγουδιών είναι η δισκογραφική πρόταση των Rage για το 2022. Τιτλοφορείται "Spreading The Plague" και έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει στα τελειώματα του πρώτου φθινοπωρινού μήνα.

Τα μισά τραγούδια ("To Live And To Die", "Spreading The Plague", "The King Has Lost His Crown") "περίσσεψαν" από τον περσινό δίσκο "Resurrection Day". Παρακολουθούμε το μουσικό βίντεο του εναρκτήριου "To Live And To Die", για το οποίο η Γερμανική μπάντα μας λέει:

«Rageheads, listen to “To Live And To Die” now and get a taste of our upcoming EP “Spreading The Plague”! We shot the clip for this song more than a year ago, right after finishing a shoot for a different video that by now has already been released for a while. Shooting two clips in a row was hella exhausting, but despite that we are really happy with the results! Care to take a guess which video we did right before shooting “To Live And To Die"?»

Το ep των Rage 'Spreading The Plague'
Δελτίο τύπου: «‘Spreading The Plague’ consists of the songs ‘To Live And To Die’, ‘Spreading The Plague’ and ‘The King Has Lost His Crown’, all three from the production phase of Rage’s 2021 album ‘Resurrection Day’ and previously unreleased.

Peavy explains: “These are numbers that we recorded at the same studio quality level as our ‘Resurrection Day’ material but have deliberately held back until now to have something special up our sleeve for our fans when we’ll be able to tour again at last.

‘Resurrection Day’ was a major success for Rage: The album scored high chart positions in a number of countries in September 2021, such as number 14 in Germany, number 12 in Japan, number 38 in Switzerland, and a more than impressive numbers 46 and 81 in the US and Canada, respectively.»

Candlemass - 'Scandinavian Gods' (official video)

"Young man, sinner, woman, sage
Carry love from birth to grave
You burning mortals will be remembered
When all is gone and all has withered

In rain and in sunshine - heaven and hell
Will you feel grief for me?
Scandinavian gods

Sing for me brother, sister and son
Sing for the brave and old
Scandinavian gods

Raging gods and dusty prophets
Your words they fly through blood ’n’ puppets
It's time to leave you, it’s time to go
Together we can heal this world

In rain and in sunshine - heaven and hell
Will you feel grief for me?
Scandinavian gods

Sing for me brother, sister and son
Sing for the brave and old
Scandinavian gods

God or devil, never let the wrong hand use you
All together, let’s build a better future

In rain and in sunshine - heaven and hell
Will you feel grief for me?
Scandinavian gods

Sing for me brother, sister and son
Sing for the brave and old
Scandinavian gods

In rain and in sunshine - heaven and hell
Will you feel grief for me?
Scandinavian gods

Sing for me brother, sister and son
Sing for the brave and old
Scandinavian gods"



Για τους Σκανδιναβούς Θεούς μας μιλούν με το νέο τους τραγούδι οι Candlemass. Το "Scandinavian Gods" αποτελεί μέρος του νέου δισκογραφικού πονήματος των Σουηδών doomsters, το οποίο τιτλοφορείται "Sweet Evil Sun" και έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει στα τελειώματα του φθινοπώρου (18 Νοεμβρίου 2022) από την Napalm Records...

Ο δίσκος των Candlemass 'Sweet Evil Sun'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Clocking in almost four decades, it’s no stretch to say that Grammy-nominated Swedish epic doom legends Candlemass are still one of the heaviest metal bands on earth. As the godfathers of epic doom metal, the band defined the genre with releases such as Epicus Doomicus Metallicus (1986) and Nightfall (1987).

Through their evil riffs, crushing rhythmic attack and dramatic vocals, they changed the landscape of metal worldwide. Reunited with outstanding original vocalist Johan Langquist, the band around founding member Leif Edling finds its way back to its roots and finally delivers the long awaited, earth-shaking new full-length album, Sweet Evil Sun, out November 18, 2022 via Napalm Records.

After working on this massive piece of art for 18 months in total, with Sweet Evil Sun, Candlemass brings back all the grandness of their early years, exploring themes of ambition and strife, hope and failure. Opening track “Wizard Of The Vortex” instantly casts a spell with a riff so powerful, the listener is immediately ensnared.

Title track “Sweet Evil Sun” kicks in with warning guitar feedback before sludging a heavy-as-hell riff as Johan Langquist deftly warbles through melancholic, beckoning passages and a hooky chorus. His imposing vocals fit each riff and tone perfectly, emerging as an instrument in itself.

The dark, classic rock-tinged Nordic metal anthem “Scandinavian Gods” reveals a perfect musical interaction between slow and heavy drums, droning guitars and majestic vocals as they convey mysterious tales of Scandinavian mythology to the next generation of doom lovers.

Jennie-Ann Smith (Avatarium) lends her beautiful voice to the theatrical, grim ""When Death Sighs”, creating a shimmering, intermingled chorus duet eventually backed by rising organs and a marching rhythm. The haunting atmosphere is highlighted by an amazing guitar solo that reads like a story as it bends and descends, marking the sign of death on the listener’s door.

It comes as no surprise that, alongside the band, renowned producer Marcus Jidell captured the band’s massive, smoky guitar tones, powerful drums and larger-than-life vocals, offering a truly unique, high quality sonic experience.

The artwork for Sweet Evil Sun was illustrated with the skilled hand of Erik Rovanperä, the architect behind Candlemass’ visual style since Psalms for the Dead (2012). Recorded at NOX studio in Stockholm, Sweden, Sweet Evil Sun impressively showcases that, after almost 40 years in the game, the creativity of these Swedish doom masters sees no bounds.

Through the power of wall-shaking riffs, incredible vocal performances and the blood and spirit of classic heavy metal, Sweet Evil Sun shines as a masterpiece of impending legend that truly honors the epic doom metal cult of Candlemass.»

Trauma - 'Walk Away' (official music video)

Don’t come at me with your Molotov cocktail
We’ll send you running, we’re not weak and frail
This is a fight of a thousand years
No surrender

We’re coming home all maimed and bloodstained
No time to waste, we’re in the fight again
No end in sight, this is mass insanity
Hate forever, evermore

This is the way
The blood of vengeance running through my veins
Feel my pain
We’re here to stay
The hatred in their heart, it still remains
Walk away

Don’t tell us now you want peace and safety
See the news, watch the rockets fly again
The people shed, a thousand tears
Peace pretender

You blast your false propaganda here
The lies you tell, only hate and fear
A blackened heart like a cancer grows
Hate forever, evermore

This is the way
The blood of vengeance running through my veins
Feel my pain
They will betray
It’s so impossible to break away
Kneel obey
We’re here to stay
The hatred in their heart, it still remains
Walk away

A million faces on a blackened sea
Pray for them but it’s too late for me
Final bell is ringing endlessly
For all a call to arms

Hey - bombs are falling
Hey - run away
Hey - sirens calling
Don’t give up don’t back down

Hey - children dying
Hey - everyday
Hey - women Crying
Won’t forget, won’t forgive

This is the way
The blood of vengeance running through my veins
Feel my pain
They will betray
It’s so impossible to break away
Kneel obey
We’re here to stay
The hatred in their heart, it still remains
Walk away



Τραύμα ονομάζεται στην ιατρική επιστήμη «κάθε βίαιη καταστροφή ιστών, εσωτερική ή εξωτερική, ανεξάρτητα από το αίτιο που την προκάλεσε», σύμφωνα τον ορισμό του Παγκοσμίου Οργανισμού Υγείας.

Οι Trauma έγιναν σχετικά γνωστοί στους underground κύκλους επειδή "πέρασε" από το roster τους ο Cliff Burton πριν πάει στους Metallica. Κυκλοφόρησε μάλιστα και ένα demo (το 1982) με τον Cliff στο μπάσο, η μόνη του ηχογράφηση εκτός Metallica.

Η μπάντα συνέχισε μετά την αποχώρησή του κυκλοφορώντας έναν full length δίσκο ("Scratch and Scream" 1984) και ένα (ακόμη) demo. Διαλύθηκε το 1985 κι επανήλθε πριν από εννέα έτη κυκλοφορώντας δύο ακόμη δίσκους ("Rapture and Wrath" 2015, "As the World Dies" 2018). Το νέο τους δισκογραφικό πόνημα φέρει τον τίτλο "Awakening" και αναμένεται στις αρχές του επόμενου μήνα...

Kissin' Dynamite - 'You're not Alone' (Wacken Open Air 2022)

They're gonna change us
But we will be one step ahead
They want to trace us
But we'll never be left for dead
If the pressure's too high we'll be shootin' them down
If the bottle is out we'll descend underground
'Cause they'll never catch us, how hard they may try
We never say die

You're not alone
You're not alone
We are king and queen
And the world is our throne

You're not alone
You're not alone
I'll stand by your side till our names are cast in stone
You're not alone

Don't look behind
Put your foot to the floor
Cut and run
Just close your eyes
You are over the worst
And it's done

Though we're runnin' on empty
Our pockets are filled
Let us spend all the money before we are killed
My dear
When the bullets will stop our hearts
And tear 'em apart

You're not alone
You're not alone
We are king and queen
And the world is our throne

You're not alone
You're not alone
I'll stand by your side till our names are cast in stone
You're not alone

They're gonna chase us
But we will be one step ahead
They want to trace us
But we'll never be left for dead

You're not alone
You're not alone
We are king and queen
And the world is our throne

You're not alone
You're not alone
I'll stand by your side till our names are cast in stone
You're not alone
You're not alone
You're not alone

Blind Illusion - 'Protomolecule' (official music video)


Τους θυμάμαι τους Blind Illusion. Είχαν προκαλέσει έναν σχετικό "θόρυβο" γύρω από το όνομά τους (στους underground κύκλους) με την κυκλοφορία του δίσκου "The Sane Asylum" το μακρινό 1988.

Αυτό που δεν γνώριζα (μέχρι πρότινος) είναι ότι η Αμερικάνικη μπάντα έχει επανέλθει. Επανασυνδέθηκε το 2009, κυκλοφόρησε δίσκο την επόμενη χρονιά ("Demon Master" 2010), μπήκε στον "πάγο" και την τελευταία τριετία επανήλθε με ένα ep, δύο singles και μία συλλογή.

Από την "παλαιά φρουρά" βρίσκουμε τον Marc Biedermann (φωνητικά και κιθάρα), ο οποίος πλαισιώνεται από τον μπασίστα Tom Gears, τον κιθαρίστα Doug Piercy (βλ. επίσης Anvil Chorus, ex-Heathen, ex-Angel Witch κλπ) και τον drummer των Death Angel (τις περιόδους 1982-1991, 2001-2008) Andy Galeon...

Venom - 'Black Metal' (Live at Wacken Open Air 2022)

Black is the night metal we fight
Power amps set to explode
Energy screams magic and dreams
Satan records their first note.
We chime the bell chaos in hell

Fast melting steel fortune on wheels
Brain haemorrhage is the cure

For

Lay down your soul to the gods rock 'n' roll

Freaking so wild nobody's mild
Giving it all that you've got.

Wild is so right metal tonight

Black is the code for tonight
Atomic force feel no remorse
Crank up the amps now it's night

BLACK METAL

Riding hell's stallions bareback and free
Taking our chances with raw energy

Rock hard and fight
United my legions we stand
Freak hard and wild for us
Give up your souls
Live for the quest Satan's band

Let's go

Against the odds black metal gods
Fight to achieve our goal
Casting a spell leather and hell
Black metal gods rock `n' roll
Building up steam nuclear screams
Warheads are ready to fight
Black leather hounds faster than sound
Metal our purpose in life

Avatarium - 'Death, Where Is Your Sting' (music video)

Did you come to deck my grave
Did you come to settle matters this time
Am I disappointing you
After all it seems I’m still alive

You’ve been waiting for so long
For the right moment to arrive
Are you losing patience now
For I’m still here still here
Still alive

I can hear the roar of thunder
See the lightning split the sky
See the devil in your eye
I can hear the rain of fire
And your raging sirens sing
But I can’t feel anything

Oh death, where is your sting

Did you come to deck my grave
Did you come to pull the dagger this time
In the valley of the shadow of death
I tripped and fell
Well
I’m still alive

I can hear the roar of thunder
See the lightning split the sky
See the devil in your eye
I can hear the rain of fire
And your raging sirens sing
But I can’t feel anything

Oh death, where is your sting
Oh death, where is your sting

You’ve spared me over yet again
But I know I’m in your calendar
One day we will meet
Again

When I hear the roar of thunder
See the lightning split the sky
See the devil in your eye

When my pale companion greets me
When the bells ring out afar
And you take me in your arms

When I hear the rain of fire
And your raging sirens sing
You’ll make me sway
Make me swing

Oh death, where is your sting
Oh death
Where is your sting

Metallica - 'Blackened' (Buffalo, NY)

Blackened is the end, winter it will send
Throwing all you see, into obscurity
Death of Mother Earth, never a rebirth
Evolution’s end, never will it mend

Never!

Fire! To begin whipping dance of the dead
Blackened is the end
To begin whipping dance of the dead
Color our world blackened

Blistering of Earth, terminate its worth
Deadly nicotine, kills what might have been
Callous frigid chill, nothing left to kill
Never seen before, breathing nevermore

Never!

Fire! To begin whipping dance of the dead
Blackened is the end
To begin whipping dance of the dead
Color our world blackened

Blackened!

See our mother

Smouldering decay, take her breath away
Millions of our years, in minutes disappears
Darkening in vain, decadence remains
All is said and done, never is the sun

Never!

Fire! To begin whipping dance of the dead
Blackened is the end
To begin whipping dance of the dead

Fire! Is the outcome of hypocrisy
Darkest potency
In the exit of humanity
Color our world blackened

Blackened



Τον Σεπτέμβριο του 1988 οι Metallica κυκλοφόρησαν τον πρώτο δίσκο τους στην μετά-Cliff εποχή υπό τον τίτλο "...and Justice for All". Ο Cliff Burton απεβίωσε δύο χρόνια πριν (27 Σεπτεμβρίου 1986) και την θέση του πήρε ο Jason Newsted. Το "...and Justice for All" αποτελεί τον αγαπημένο δίσκο του γράφοντος από την δισκογραφία των Metallica (γνωρίζω πως είμαι η μειοψηφία της... μειοψηφίας)!

Λογότυπο των Metallica
Το album αρχίζει με τον κεραυνό "Blackened" και το υπόλοιπα είναι (heavy metal) ιστορία. Σήμερα σας παρουσιάζουμε το βίντεο με την "ζωντανή" απόδοση του τραγουδιού από την εμφάνιση της μπάντας στο Highmark Stadium (Buffalo, NY) προ ημερών (11 Αυγούστου 2022)...

Whitesnake - 'Crying in the Rain' (Look Back)

A black cat moans
When he's burning with the fever
A stray dog howls
When he's lonely in the night
A woman goes crazy
With the though of retribution
But, a man starts weeping
When he's sick and tired of life

I keep on dreaming dreams of tomorrow
Feel I'm wasting my time
Lighting candles in the wind,
Always taking my chances
On the promise of the future
But, a heart full of sorrow
Paints a lonely tapestry

The sun is shining
But, it's raining in my heart

No one understands the heartache,
No one feels the pain,
Cause no one ever sees the tears
When you're crying in the rain,
When you're crying in the rain,
Crying in the rain

I can never deny
All the sweet things I have tasted
Tho' I've been mistreated
I keep coming back for more,
I know where I'm going
There's no hope of absolution
I can't seem to separate
The good times from the bad

The sun is shining
But, it's raining in my heart

No one understands the heartache,
No one feels the pain,
Cause no one ever sees the tears
When you're crying in the rain,
When you're crying in the rain,
When you're crying in the rain,
When you're crying in the rain

The sun is shining
But, it's raining in my heart

No one understands the heartache,
No one feels the pain,
Cause no one ever sees the tears
When you're crying in the rain,
When you're crying in the rain,
When you're crying in the rain,
When you're crying in the rain

Crying in the rain


"Greatest Hits 2022 - Revisited - Remixed - Remastered" τιτλοφορείται το νέο δισκογραφικό πόνημα των Whitesnake, το οποίο (όπως μαρτυρά και ο τίτλος του) είναι συλλογή και κυκλοφορεί ήδη σε διάφορες μορφές - formats. Θυμόμαστε το τραγούδι "Crying in the Rain" καθώς και εκείνο με τον David Coverdale να μιλά για το εν λόγω μουσικό κομμάτι.

Το "Crying in the Rain" το γνωρίσαμε σε δύο εκδοχές. Στην αρχική που βρίσκουμε στον δίσκο του 1982 "Saints & Sinners" και στην επανηχογραφημένη, η οποία αποτέλεσε μέρος του ομώνυμου δίσκου των Whitesnake (γνωστού και ως "1987")...

Η συλλογή των Whitesnake 'Greatest Hits 2022'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Whitesnake founder and lead singer David Coverdale had 16 tracks remixed and remastered for this collection.

He explains: “We’ve definitely expanded on the original Greatest Hits, took them all out of the sonic time capsule of the ’80s and ’90s, and brought them up to date, sound-wise … as always, we have the original albums for those who consider them holy relics.

Keyboardist Derek Sherinian, who also appeared on Whitesnake’s recent Red, White and Blues trilogy, adds Hammond organ to more than half the songs on the collection. His scorching contributions can be heard on the #1 smash “Here I Go Again,” “Fool For Your Loving,” “You’re Gonna Break My Heart Again,” and more.

New performances by former Whitesnake guitarist Adrian Vandenberg can also be heard on “The Deeper The Love” and “Judgement Day” from the 1989 album, Slip of the Tongue. Along with those new additions, Coverdale also went back to the vault to unearth vintage performances by guitarist John Sykes that didn’t appear on the original recordings, including a solo on “Slide It In” and rhythm guitar on “Give Me All Your Love.”

Whitesnake Greatest Hits focuses extensively on three blockbuster albums the band released during the 1980s: 1984’s Slide It In (2x platinum), 1987’s Whitesnake (8x platinum), and 1989’s Slip of the Tongue (platinum). But the collection goes deeper with songs like “Sweet Lady Luck,” a b-side on the 12” single for “The Deeper The Love,” and “Forevermore,” the title track from the band’s 2011 album.

Whitesnake will embark upon a farewell tour in May with special guest, Europe. The first leg of “Whitesnake: The Farewell Tour” will start on May 10 in Dublin. Coverdale said: “I pray every day we can all make this happen & once again, share unforgettable evenings together & celebrate the amazing journey we have been on for almost 50 years!!!”»

Trial (Swe) - 'In the Highest' (Guitar Playthrough)


Δισκογραφική επιστροφή μετά από (ουσιαστικά) πέντε χρόνια για τους Trial. Ο διάδοχος του album "Motherless" (Απρίλιος 2017) και τέταρτος συνολικά "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος των Σουηδών metallers τιτλοφορείται "Feed the Fire" και έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει στις αρχές του φθινοπώρου. Στα φωνητικά βρίσκουμε τον (πρώην τραγουδιστή των Air Raid) Arthur W. Andersson, ο οποίος ενσωματώθηκε στην μπάντα προ τριετίας και τον είχαμε ακούσει στο ep "Sisters of the Moon".
