KISS turn 40 this year, and to celebrate, they’ve put together a monstrous vinyl package that might possibly be the best we’ve ever seen.

As well as a two-CD KISS 40 compilation featuring one track from every major album, plus live cuts and an unreleased demo from 1977, the rock ‘n’ roll legends are also unleashing Kissteria — The Ultimate Vinyl Road Case, a vinyl box set that includes no less than 34 (thirty four!!!) KISS albums, including records never before released on vinyl.

The limited-edition beast of a set boasts 19 studio full-lengths, all five Alive releases, the four original Kiss solo albums and six exclusive vinyl discs that will not be sold individually. Extras include 11 posters (including the band’s first promo poster), a Kiss vinyl cleaning cloth, a Kiss turntable mat, Kiss dominos and four band lithographs.

Not much, then?! Bank on this being fucking expensive, but in fairness, it’s a helluva box set. Head to the official KISS website to find out how to pre-order your set.

If you know me, you know I love Doomriders. The band started as a side-project featuring members of Converge and Cave In but slowly turned into it's own beast. The band is gearing up to release their third full length album, Grand Blood next month and today, released an official single and I'm jammin' on …

Norwegian psychedelic quartet SAHG, which specializes in doom-infused ’70s rock, will release their new album, “Delusions Of Grandeur”, on October 25 via Indie Recordings.

“Delusions Of Grandeur” track listing:

01. Slip Off The Edge Of The Universe
02. Blizzardborne
03. Firechild
04. Walls Of Delusion
05. Ether
06. Then Wakens The Beast
07. Odium Delirium
08. Sleeper’s Gate To The Galaxy

The song “Slip Off The Edge Of The Universe” can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.

“Delusions Of Grandeur” is a concept record “about a person, whose delusions of grandeur escalate to the level where they consume him completely,” explains SAHG’s Olav Iversen (vocals, guitar). “From becoming increasingly psychopathic and dominant, he loses touch with everyone around him and isolates into his own imaginary, psychotic world, where he becomes the almighty ruler of the universe. As he stands on the highest peak of his domain and beholds all that he has conquered, he suddenly slips off the edge and floats away, weightless. Helpless and stripped of all power, he drifts further into the open space, until he disappears into the darkness. It’s an album about how desire for power and property can distort and destroy who we are.”

SAHG‘s new CD was recorded at Duper studio in Bergen, Norway.

SAHG‘s third album, “Sahg III”, came out on August 30, 2010 through Indie.

SAHG is:

Olav Iversen – Vocals/Guitar
Tony Vetaas – Bass
Thomas Tofthagen – Guitar
Thomas Lønnheim – Drums

Metallicaaaaaaaaah

It looks like Metallica might be harbouring plans to bring their full Through The Never movie set production on tour!

“Well, that’s the plan, you know,” bassist Rob Trujillo tells The Pulse Of Radio. “I don’t think you build something that incredible and not, you know, share it with the world. Obviously we’re just trying to get through this phase of the journey and gonna release this beast to the world and present it on the IMAX screens, and then after that, you know, we’ll see where the adventure takes us, you know. We do have this stage, we should put it to use.”

Could we see The Toilet On Tour?

Metallica: Through The Never opens internationally next month. Read more about the film, the band’s immediate plans and that long-awaited new album in our immense new issue, out right now (and also featuring free Metallica posters, stickers and a film guide, just because. ABSOLUTLEEEH!).

When METALLICA‘s new movie, “Metallica Through The Never”, opens in 3D IMAX on September 27, fans will see the band performing on a massive stage, specially constructed for the film, that incorporates elements of METALLICA live shows from the past 30 years. The Pulse Of Radio asked bassist Robert Trujillo if there is any chance of taking that stage show on the road. “Well, that’s the plan, you know,” he said. “I don’t think you build something that incredible and not, you know, share it with the world. Obviously we’re just trying to get through this phase of the journey and gonna release this beast to the world and present it on the IMAX screens, and then after that, you know, we’ll see where the adventure takes us, you know. We do have this stage, we should put it to use.”

The band has released a third chapter in its “Hit The Lights: The Making Of Metallica’s Through The Never” series of videos.

The new segment focuses on the conception and construction of the stage and live production.

The movie will expand to theaters around the country on October 4 after its limited IMAX opening on September 27.

The film, a blend of concert movie and fictional narrative, stars Dane DeHaan as a member of METALLICA‘s road crew who is sent on a mysterious mission while the band performs at a sold-out arena and events outside grow more bizarre.

This Saturday (September 21), METALLICA will play a special show at New York’s famed Apollo Theater as part of the promotion for the film.
