But it could used, though… I mean, there's a list — whether it's a personal list or it's a worldwide list, there's a long list of people that could fit that description right there… That could definitely be 'Bad Woman' too, but 'Bad Man' just fit the syllables of the song, the cadence.

BLACKBRIAR RELEASES "CRIMSON FACES"

 

Zora Cock about the new single: "'Crimson Faces' tells a story of being haunted by ghosts, jealousy, and insecurities, based on the old classic Gothic novel 'Rebecca'.

AND 'YOU AND I' SINGLE

"I believe it's a story everyone will connect to, on a human level, because we've all gone through things in life." The album explores boy-meets-girl, obstacles in relationships, the polarized political climate and the state of the world, betrayal, connection, rebounds, and more. It also gets into the idea of legacy, what we leave behind; fitting for what Erna has noted as GODSMACK's final studio album.

AMBERIAN DAWN UNVEIL SECOND SINGLE

“GIMME! GIMME! GIMME! (A MAN AFTER MIDNIGHT)”

 

AMBERIAN DAWN does not shy away from experimenting with musical styles and combining nostalgic earworms with their dashing trademark sound. With their newest single “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)” vocalist Capri‘s angelic voice merges with electrifying soundscapes to transform this ABBA classic into a metal experience never heard before.

 

Tuomas Seppälä on the new single:

“This was an easy and obvious pick for this album. The song is a true masterpiece. It was easy to arrange into a metal version. For a while, I considered replacing the famous keyboard lead intro with guitar, but quite soon I wanted to keep the lead part played with keyboards. It gives more ABBA feeling to the song. Capri sings amazingly, once again.

And for the very first time, we had a chance for our bassist to play slap bass in the middle part of the song.

It’s rarely heard in metal music.”

XANDRIA SEES “GHOSTS” IN NEW VIDEO;

NEW ALBUM ARRIVING IN FEBRUARY

 

German Symphonic metal outfit Xandria have announced their new album,

The Wonders Still Awaiting, out February 3rd, 2023, via Napalm Records.

 

The group comments:

 

Ghosts actually started as a reminiscence to good old Swedish melodic death metal and with that archetypical guitar riff that you hear right in the beginning. And then we integrated it into our XANDRIA soundscape with lots of film score atmosphere and big choirs, because it was exciting to mix these elements and do our own thing with it (still we kept the working title “Swedish Fire” for a long time…). It is a good example for how diverse the new album will be and how many different influences we were putting into it. We had a lot of things – little musical dreams – in our minds and hearts that we wanted to realize, and along with what you already heard in the first two new songs this is just one of them.

There will be quite some more surprises coming…”

HEAR POLYPHIA CHANNEL DIMEBAG AND DEFTONES IN THEIR HEAVIEST SONG YET, THE CHINO MORENO-FEATURING BLOODBATH

 

“It’s funny, because that song was less rock in its earlier stage,” LePage reveals in the latest issue of Guitar World.

“We did a session with Chino, and after we got his vocals I said, ‘This isn’t right.’ I redid the guitars except for Tim’s parts to make them fit the vocals. Then I added that solo because it would sound badass.”

My feet were moving. I thought I was running, but I was dancing. A celebration. Yes, I am the Devil, and I believe that one day you can be the Devil too. It is my hope and ambition that this song will help you find your way there.

As such, it's a celebration of love, lust and democracy."

of his new album. The video was directed by iCode.

 

Devin says: "Lightworker is a song based loosely around Richard Alpert (Ram Dass) who died a few years ago.

His book ‘Be Here Now’ was influential to me as a kid, and when I saw the documentary they made about him on Netflix (Going Home) I felt inspired to write a track in his memory. I reached out to the Ram Dass foundation and they allowed me to use the sample of his voice in the mid section."

"Best Of: Living The Dream", on December 2

It's an internal battle inside of me because at that time in life, I was really searching for my place in this world, where

I belong as a person, as an individual."

 

"After all these years, I still really can't believe it's time for me to release a proper 'Best Of' album," Tarja says.

"So many beautiful moments, unbelievable. It has been a dream to put together this collection. And I really hope that you will enjoy this as much as I did while making it."

I basically wrote the song for her to be my duet partner. The song may have a touch of 80s pop to some and stylistically it may also remind others of Nightwish, but in the end, it still sounds like Avantasia."

MEGADETH SHARES NEW CHAPTER FROM EPIC SHORT FILM FEATURING 'LIFE IN HELL' SONG

 

MEGADETH has released the official music video for the song "Life In Hell", taken from the band's latest studio album, "The Sick, The Dying... And The Dead!" 

 

Mustaine told Kerrang! magazine about "Life In Hell": "'Life In Hell' is about someone who believes he's this James Bond-like motherfucker who can live this life of espionage. He's ultra-cool. No matter what, he thinks that he's going to get out of it. He's someone with a nihilistic — maybe fatalistic is a better word — outlook towards things. It's about that self-obsessed, self-absorbed person, and how they eventually get caught.

 

"I like to have a moral, or a payoff, to my lyrics. I think the middle-eight here really does that: 'Only a fool would do what you've done / You lie, you steal and you cheat everyone / When you're caught in your most despicable deed / You plead the court for diplomatic immunity…' That could have been any of those people over the last four or five years who [were called out for] their terrible, predatory behavior in Hollywood. 'Life In Hell' is ultimately about that person who's so into himself that nothing else matters to him, except him."

THE 69 EYES RELEASE NEW SINGLE “GOTTA ROCK”

“The Finnish classic rock band Boycott was one of our favorites in the 80’s when we put up The 69 Eyes. Due to the Finnish music TV program that I was recently featured in, we finally had a reason to make our own, more Gothic Rock sounding cover of Boycott’s ultimate classic 80’s smash hit ‘Gotta Rock’. Die Krupps’ Jürgen Engler was helping us

to arrange it into this darken mode!”

The obvious path would have been to pick an epic progressive song from the likes of Genesis, Pink Floyd etc. Instead, we went for the opposite with ‘Snuff’, a scaled down and brutally honest song that we all love in its powerful sincerity.”

of the band, and Patric delivered as always!”

At a certain point in our lives, we submit to putting aside who's right or wrong, we just want it to STOP! So we wave the white flag."

THE AGONIST PREMIERE NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR

“IMMACULATE DECEPTION”

 

Canadian melodic death metal band The Agonist premiere a new official music video for “Immaculate Deception”

taken from their latest EP “Days Before The World Wept“.

 

Explains frontwoman Vicky Psarakis:

 

‘Immaculate Deception‘ is a song about societal pressure and feelings of remorse over time.

 

The main point I want to highlight is the concept of time and the fear that comes with it. We all reach a point where we start noticing that we’re aging. In current society, there’s a big push to try and preserve our physical state. There’s a huge movement of cosmetic procedures and products that promise us “eternal youth”.

People like to think that they can keep reliving their 20s, instead of embracing the natural course of life and the challenges and rewards that come with it.
