At long last, Blood Feast is reborn into the metal underground with the highly anticipated third full-length album, “The Future State Of Wicked,” set to be released by longtime fans Hells Headbangers. And today, the band reveals the details, as well as the first track, “INRI,” which can be heard in the player below. The album is targeted for an early 2017 release.

Blood Feast fans old and new will not be disappointed by “The Future State of Wicked,” as the “holy trinity” of releases from the band’s early days – “Kill For Pleasure” (1987), the “Face Fate” EP (1988) and “Chopping Block Blues” (1990) – inform much of the new album. All the speed, brutality, and twists ‘n’ turns Blood Feast is known for are intact and in your face (nine of the 10 songs being written by original guitarist Adam Tranquilli), yet updated with modern production. Joining Adam are vocalist Chris Natalini and bassist Tom Lorenzo, along with some new blood in Joe Moore (drums) and CJ Scioscia (guitar).

The five-man Blood Feast reunited for an appearance at the NJ March Metal Meltdown in 1999, but further activity was not to be. A second reunion began in 2007, albeit only with original members Tranquilli and Kuzma. Both Lorenzo and Natalini came on board in 2010, just in time for the band’s first appearance at Headbangers Open Air in Germany (they were invited back in 2013). During this stretch, Adam began writing new material, with the band even playing an early version of “INRI” at select shows.

The track list for the album is:

1. INRI
2. Off With Their Heads
3. Brethren
4. By The Slice
5. The Underling
6. Last Rites
7. Who Prays For the Devil
8. Nein
9. Remnants II
10. The Burn

Athens, Georgia based melodic metal band Theocracy just released a lyric video for the track “Wishing Well” from the highly anticipated new album “Ghost Ship.” Check it out in the player below. The album will be released on October 28th in Europe and North America through Ulterium Records.

“Ghost Ship” will be available on CD, 2LP and digital. The 2LP edition is strictly limited to 1001 copies worldwide. 750 copies comes with black vinyl discs and 251 copies comes with white vinyl discs.

With “Ghost Ship,” Theocracy perfects the lively and fully-realized sound of “As the World Bleeds,” delivering 10 muscular and streamlined tracks that never lose focus and combine for one memorable journey. You like mid-tempo singalong anthems? Try the “Ghost Ship” title track. Thrashy rhythms and intensity? “The Wonder of It All” should be to your liking. Emotional ballads with huge melodic hooks? Go “Around the World and Back.” Or if you prefer epic, progressive tracks that do all these things and more, 10-minute album closer “Easter” is sure to be a favorite. Each song on “Ghost Ship” stands alone and has a unique signature, but every moment sounds unmistakably like Theocracy.

“So many kids were coming up to us after shows and telling us their stories,” says Theocracy vocalist Matt Smith. “A lot of them were searching for purpose and a place to fit in, and having grown up as an awkward and unpopular kid myself, their words really stuck with me. I started thinking about what a band of misfits Jesus’ disciples were: fishermen, tax collectors, and people of little consequence in the eyes of the world. Sometimes the ones most people don’t see, or choose to look straight through—the ghosts of society, as it were, dead to the world—end up having the biggest impact. That’s where the title and idea for Ghost Ship came from: all the misfits, the uncool, the outcasts, there is a place where you do fit in. Although Ghost Ship is not a concept album, this is a recurring theme, particularly in the title track and ‘Castaway.’”

The track listing for “Ghost Ship” is:

1. Paper Tiger
2. Ghost Ship
3. The Wonder Of It All
4. Wishing Well
5. Around the World and Back
6. Stir the Embers
7. A Call To Arms
8. Currency In A Bankrupt World
9. Castaway
10. Easter

Fri 4/11 – Hall of Fame – Wetzikon, Switzerland
Sat 5/11 – Kreatief – Neckarsulm, Germany
Sun 6/11 – Exit-US – Prague, Czech Republic

Following the departure of vocalist Fabio Lione from Italian power metal pioneers Rhapsody Of Fire, the band issued a statement vowing to continue with a new singer.

The statement reads:

“Dear Fans: We have to announce an important change in the band. After an amazing musical adventure together, Fabio Lione and Rhapsody of Fire have decided to part ways.

“The decision was not easy but we are convinced that it will open up new possibilities and new horizons for both parties.

“The music will go on. Rhapsody Of Fire will continue composing, producing and playing amazing music for their fans.

“To give us time to regroup, we will cancel and postpone the European shows announced for November 2016.

“Finally, we would like to thank Fabio for being part of the Rhapsody Of Fire history and we wish him all the best with his future projects.”

Psychedelic doom/sludge band Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard premieres the pre-release full-album stream of the band’s upcoming new album “Y Proffwydd Dwyll”, which will be out in stores tomorrow Friday, September 30 via New Heavy Sounds.

Check out now “Y Proffwydd Dwyll” in its entirety below.

Says guitarist Paul Michael Davies about the new album:

“We wanted to push the doom template a bit, especially as Jessica is not your typical female/doom vocalist, we definitely wanted it to be more than your “typical doom”. The title is in Welsh (as are the album credits) as we are from Wales. “Y Proffwyd Dwyll” loosely translates as ‘The False Prophet’ and there is a concept running through the album… worship. However, Jessica never shows us the final lyrics, she’s a bit mysterious, in fact it’s all a bit mysterious, but that’s cool. We like the listener to make up their own stories to the tracks.”
