L.A. Guns - "There Ain't No Sanity Clause" (The Damned cover)

Rabies got the scabies now he's down on all fours
Hasn't helped his drumming, changing hands for paws
Afraid he's quarantined, means no more foreign tours

Ah ha, there ain't no sanity clause
Oh no, there ain't no sanity clause

Vanian had a visit from a guy named Drac
Says he's from the blood bank wants his ten pints back
Singer's rather sickly, when it rains it pours

Oh no, there ain't no sanity clause
Oh no, there ain't no sanity clause

Did you expect that I would believe
The tale you told last Christmas Eve
About the man
That man is fat and round
Delivers gifts without a sound

Here comes uncle Nick
Let's give him some stick
Here comes uncle Nick
Let's give him some stick

Captain's out of order 'cause he thinks he's Jaws
Biting lady punters on the Norfolk Broads
Paul plays the bass he's just debased that's all
Oh no, there ain't no sanity clause

There ain't no sanity clause

Το τραγούδι  των LA Guns "There Ain't No Sanity Clause" από το ep "Another Xmas In Hell"
Το Χριστουγεννιάτικο κλίμα συνεπήρε και τους L.A. Guns, η οποίοι κυκλοφόρησαν προχθές το ep "There Ain't No Sanity Clause". Περιέχει πέντε τραγούδια, κατά βάση διασκευές κι είναι η δεύτερη φετινή κυκλοφορία των Αμερικανών, καθώς είχε προηγηθεί το album "The Devil You Know" τον περασμένο Μάρτιο. Όλα αυτά ενώ δουλεύουν ήδη πάνω στον καινούριο τους δίσκο που αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσει μέσα στο 2020...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Just in time for the holiday season and most importantly, Christmas carolling season, L.A. Guns have released a brand new digital EP, "Another Xmas In Hell".

Featuring covers of holiday classics by The Damned, Ramones, Slade, and Billy Squier, these tracks will surely liven up your holiday festivities and provide a suitable soundtrack to guzzling down your spiked eggnog. "Another Xmas In Hell" also features a special guest appearance from the one and only William Shatner.

Yes, THAT William Shatner. L.A. Guns, between tour dates, are currently working on writing songs for a new studio album tentatively due for release in late 2020 via Frontiers Records. This will be the third studio album since the much welcome reunion of the band's core foundation of vocalist Phil Lewis and guitarist Tracii Guns.

It will follow the well received albums "The Missing Peace" and "The Devil You Know", plus the live release, "Made In Milan". More details to come in 2020. In the meantime, make sure to crank up "Another Xmas In Hell" loud enough to let your neighbors enjoy the music too and perhaps to send your in-laws running out the door...»

Hanging Garden - "Navigator" (lyric video)

Το βίντεο των Hanging Garden για το "Navigator" από το album "Into That Good Night"
Ο έκτος δίσκος των Hanging Garden κυκλοφορεί από τα μέσα Νοεμβρίου. Τιτλοφορείται "Into That Good Night". Οι Hanging Garden μας έρχονται από την Φινλανδία και μας παρουσιάζονται κάπως έτσι: «While retaining roots in metal music, Hanging Garden possesses a versatile style of playing, drawing influence and inspiration from music and art». Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει έξι full length albums, τέσσερα EPs, ένα demo και έξι singles...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Navigator is the mellow and serene moment of hope on "Into That Good Night", giving a moment of calm before the crushing final track. The lead vocals on this track are sung by Riikka, and the lyrics are a collaboration between her and Toni, based on the initial reflections of Riikka upon her first hearing the composition by Jussi K.»

Toni Toivonen: «The video was an ex tempore thought of Jussi H. The idea came to him suddenly during the evening after shooting the promo band pictures for the album, late in summer, at the Backwoods cabin.

We were warming up the wood burning hot tub stove at the beach sauna, and the smoke from the chimney, flowing past a beacon-like light caught Jussi's eye. Jussi made me run to fetch the camera from the main building some hundred meters away, and we did the video then and there, without any preparation, using a broken garden chair as a camera stand.

The atmosphere of that late summer/early autumn night's still, calm darkness alongside the floating plumes of smoke is captured rather well, I would say. What you can't see from the video is Mikko, Nino and Sami soaking in the hot tub just three meters away...»

Brothers of Metal - "One" (video)

Ο δεύτερος δίσκος των Brothers of Metal είναι προ των πυλών. Ο διάδοχος του album "Prophecy of Ragnarök" (2017) των Σουηδών true metallers τιτλοφορείται "Emblas Saga" κι έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει στην αυγή του νέου έτους. Το έδαφος προετοίμασε το single "Njord". Σειρά για παρουσίαση παίρνει το βίντεο του τραγουδιού "One"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «On an immensely cold winters night in 2012, a group of warriors sat down at the local inn after a hard day of plundering. Bored as hell they began to drink an epic amount of mead.

All of a sudden one of the warriors picked up a strange device he had looted from a priest earlier that day. It was an electric lute. He started to play and it sounded awesome, so all the other warriors joined in by swinging and smashing their hammers upon the tables and screaming extremly loud.

Instantly they knew this was a sound to be reckoned with. And on to this day the sound from that faithfull night at the local inn still echoes around the world And you might wonder, who were those fierce warriors? They are a force so brutal and strong they could lay waste to the world and everything in it!»

Legendry - "Vindicator" (video)

Το βίντεο των Legendry για το "Vindicator" από το album "The Wizard and the Tower Keep"
From the highest mountain
To the torch lit glow of the dungeon lair
Journeyed through the wastelands
Heavy metal madness found me there

Sword in hand,
My vengeance spread across this evil land

War Maker, Spell Breaker, Vindicator

Live to fight and plunder
I seen sights beyond compare
In the misty forests
I fought the beasts of legend there

Running in the wild
My enemies will know my wrath
With heavy metal power
Oh blood and iron be my path

I have traveled beyond the veil
Laid waste to reason in my wake
I greet my doom with a mighty hail
From triumph or defeat there is no escape

Ο τρίτος "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος των Legendry κυκλοφορεί ήδη. Τιτλοφορείται "The Wizard and the Tower Keep" κι είναι εμπνευσμένος (στιχουργικά) από την ομότιτλη νουβέλα του D.R. Lackner. Στους Legendry έχουμε αναφερθεί πολλάκις.

Μας έρχονται από τις ΗΠΑ, δημιουργήθηκαν προ τετραετίας, αρέσκονται στο πρωτόλειο - επικό heavy metal και δηλώνουν ως επιρροές τους Manilla Road, Cirith Ungol, Omen, Pagan Altar, Wishbone Ash, Jethro Tull, King Crimson, Yes, Lords of the Crimson Alliance και τον συγγραφέα - δημιουργό του Conan, Robert E. Howard.

Οι ίδιοι περιγράφουν το μουσικό τους ύφος κάπως έτσι: «From a metal age undreamed of, comes forth Legendry: an epic heavy metal band from Pittsburgh, PA who carries on in the tradition of Manilla Road, Omen, and Cirith Ungol with a nod to the 70s prog sounds of Wishbone Ash, Yes, and Jethro Tull.»

Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει τρεις "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους ("Mists of Time" 2016, "Dungeon Crawler" 2017, "The Wizard and the Tower Keep" 2019) κι ένα demo ("Initiation Rituals" 2016).

Bio: «Through mists of time, and beyond the dungeons deep, Legendry has sought the secrets of steel. With swords raised, honoring such heroes as Manilla Road, Cirith Ungol, and Warlord, and delving into the progressive wizardry of King Crimson, Uriah Heep, and Jethro Tull, Legendry doth heed the call to heavy metal adventure.»

Iron Void - "Lancelot of the Lake" (video)

Το βίντεο των Iron Void για το "Lancelot of the Lake" από το album "Excalibur"
Mighty Opponent
Dressed in white and armed to fight
Bodies lie broken
And i alone must face this knight
No match in battle
Joust or duel, strength of arms
Rode onto his shield
Smote me down, upon the earth

Lancelot of the Lake
The perfect knight, the sword will break
Knights of the Table Round
Where chivalry, honour and glory are found

Worth beyond measure
I call upon your mystic power
Pride and rage broke it
Overcome, the bravest flower
Rising from darkness
The Lady of the Lake appears
Wielding the sword
The blade reforged with Nimue's tears

We formed the fellowship
That stood the test of time
A noble brotherhood
Exalted and sublime

Την ιστορία - μύθο του βασιλιά Αρθούρου, των Ιπποτών της στρογγυλής τραπέζης και του σπαθιού Excalibur πιθανότατα την γνωρίζετε.

Sons Of Apollo - Writing "Goodbye Divinity" (video)

Ο νέος δίσκος των Sons Of Apollo είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "MMXX" κι αναμένεται στο ξεκίνημα της νέας χρονιάς. Είναι το δεύτερο "ολοκληρωμένο" στουντιακό album της all star prog metal / rock band.

Την μπάντα δημιούργησαν δύο πρώην μέλη των Dream Theater: ο drummer Mike Portnoy και o πληκτράς Derek Sherinian. Μαζί τους ο Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), ο Billy Sheehan (The Winery Dogs, Mr. Big, David Lee Roth κλπ) και ο Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force, ex-Journey κλπ)...

Mike Portnoy: «From the minute we finished writing Goodbye Divinity, I knew we had our album opener and the first release off the album. I even remember posting on social media how excited I was about the song the day I tracked it!

The song has an immediacy that grabs you right away: great riffs, flashy playing and hooky vocal melodies. All of the elements that make up the SOA sound. The video was directed by Vicente Cordero who I have now done over 20 music videos with and its look helps catapult the band from the Greek mythological past of the last album into the 21st century with this new album.»

Temperance - "Lost In The Christmas Dream" (audio)

Το single των Temperance "Lost In The Christmas Dream"
Οι Temperance μας έρχονται από την Ιταλία. Δημιουργήθηκαν προ εξαετίας και μας παρουσιάζονται κάπως έτσι: «Temperance is where exceptional vocal melodies, energetic Metal guitar riffing and symphonic atmospheres meet in perfect harmony». Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει τέσσερις "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους, τέσσερα singles και ένα live album.

Ο πέμπτος στουντιακός δίσκος είναι προ των πυλών. Ο διάδοχος του album "Of Jupiter and Moons" (Απρίλιος 2018) τιτλοφορείται "Viridian". Είναι ο πρώτος με την καινούρια τους εταιρεία (Napalm Records) κι αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσει τον Ιανουάριο του νέου έτους.

Ενόψει Χριστουγέννων οι Temperance ηχογράφησαν το τραγούδι "Lost In The Christmas Dream", το οποίο κυκλοφόρησε σήμερα ως (ψηφιακό) single και θα υπάρχει επίσης μόνο στην ψηφιακή έκδοση του "Viridian"...

Marco Pastorino «We always wanted to surprise our fans and write a song about Christmas. Can you imagine the typical Christmas mood paired with an anthem in classic Temperance fashion? We think that not a lot of metal bands did such thing and we hope that "Lost In The Christmas Dream" brings a great amount of positive energy and joy to everyone. Merry Xmas!»
