The love for Bay Area trash metal is evident in the songs of the German quartet, but the use of modern elements gives their sound a highly unique character. The songs are aggressive, furious and reminiscent of old classics by the likes of KREATOR, SLAYER and TESTAMENT.”

AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson makes a guest appearance on “The Last Ship”, a soundtrack primarily featuring Sting for a Broadway production of the same name. Johnson can be heard on the song “Sky Hooks and Tartan Paint”, which is one of eight bonus tracks on the super deluxe edition of the album.

A 90-second snippet of “Sky Hooks and Tartan Paint” (courtesy of Ultimate Classic Rock) can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget below.

“The Last Ship” explores the central themes of homecoming and self-discovery, drawing upon Sting‘s memories of growing up in the shadow of the Swan Hunters Shipyard in Wallsend. His personal reminiscences illuminate universal truths — the complexity of relationships, the passage of time and the importance of family and community — to form an affecting, complex parable for our modern times.

The play, in which Sting has been creatively immersed for nearly three years, debuts on Broadway in 2014 and is a collaboration with Tony Award winners Joe Mantello (director; “Wicked”, “Other Desert Cities”), John Logan (writer; “Red”, “Skyfall”) and Brian Yorkey (writer; “Next to Normal”). “The Last Ship” tells the story of the demise of the shipbuilding industry in 1980s Newcastle which had, for so long, shaped and overshadowed the city, its development, and its community.

Due on September 24, “The Last Ship” album is produced by Rob Mathes (Sting, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Lou Reed, Carly Simon) and engineered and mixed by Donal Hodgson. It will be available as both a digital and physical release in two configurations — a 12-song version and a 2-disc deluxe version featuring 5 additional tracks. (The 12-song version will also be available on vinyl.) A super deluxe edition, containing 2-discs comprised of 20 tracks within special packaging, will also be sold as a physical product exclusively at Amazon.com. AmazonMP3 will be the exclusive retailer for the 20-track, super deluxe digital edition.

German black metallers ENDSTILLE will release their eighth full-length album, “Kapitulation 2013″, on November 8 in Europe and November 12 in North America via Season Of Mist.

“Kapitulation 2013″ track listing:

01. Aborted
02. The Refined Nation
03. Reich An Jugend
04. Sick Heil
05. Blasphemer (SODOM cover)
06. Monotonus 2013
07. Nostalgia
08. Stalin Note
09. KDF 511
10. Endstille (Abschied)

The song “The Refined Nation” can be streamed below.

With its eighth full-frontal assault, “Kapitulation 2013″, ENDSTILLE is armed and dangerous again. There is true grit and dirt in the nine original tracks as well as in the cover version of the SODOM classic “Blasphemer”, featuring a guest appearance by ex-SODOM guitarist Grave Violator on guitar.

“Kapitulation 2013″ has everything you expect from German black metal and more: furious droning of deliberately monotonous guitars, relentless punishing from the rhythm section and undiluted vocal aggression from the raw throat of frontman Zingultus – formerly of legendary NAGELFAR. Now ENDSTILLE is once more ready to take on the world with “Kapitulation 2013″, combining its strongest aspects on one album.

ENDSTILLE‘s seventh CD, “Infektion 1813″, came out in May 2011 through Season Of Mist.

ENDSTILLE in 2009 announced the addition of vocalist Zingultus to the group’s ranks.

The group’s sixth LP, entitled “Verfhrer”, was released in April 2009 via Regain Records.

Professionally filmed video footage of former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach‘ September 19 performance at the Rock In Rio festival in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil can be seen below.

Acclaimed drummer Bobby Jarzombek (HALFORD, RIOT, SEBASTIAN BACH, FATES WARNING) recently finished laying down drum tracks for 12 songs on the new solo album from Sebastian Bach. The CD is being recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Bob Marlette (BLACK SABBATH, ALICE COOPER), who helmed Bach‘s last solo CD, 2011′s “Kicking & Screaming”.

The guitars on Bach‘s new album will be performed by Devin Bronson (AVRIL LAVIGNE, PINK) and Steve Stevens (BILLY IDOL). There will also be songwriting contributions from guitarist John 5 (ROB ZOMBIE, ex-MARILYN MANSON), who co-wrote the song “TunnelVision” on “Kicking & Screaming”. Making a guest appearance on the CD will be bassist Duff McKagan (DUFF MCKAGAN’S LOADED, VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N’ ROSES).

Bach previously stated about his new material: “It is going to be balls-out, kick-ass rock ‘n’ roll with tons of vocal histrionics and harmonies especially… I am going to really concentrate on harmonies and pushing my voice to the maximum you have ever heard it pushed. The riffs are crazy and cool.”

Bach‘s brand new CD/DVD package, “ABachalypse Now”, was released in North America on March 26 via Frontiers Records. The “ABachalypse Now” Ultimate CD/DVD Edition includes never-before-seen footage from last year’s Graspop Metal Meeting festival in Dessel, Belgium, the full never-before-seen Hellfest set from France and the fully-remixed and remastered Nokia show from Los Angeles (originally broadcast on AXS TV), as well as bonus music videos. The DVD contains a running time of nearly 160 minutes. “ABachalypse Now” was made available in two configurations: the Ultimate CD/DVD Edition (2 CDs + DVD) and a standalone DVD.

Rock Science TV recently conducted an interview with Duff McKagan (GUNS N’ ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER, LOADED, WALKING PAPERS). You can now watch the chat below.

WALKING PAPERS, the much-buzzed-about new band featuring rock luminaries Duff McKagan, Barrett Martin (SCREAMING TREES, MAD SEASON), Jeff Angell and Benjamin Anderson (both of THE MISSIONARY POSITION) recently signed with Loud & Proud Records for the release of its self-titled debut.

Recorded in Seattle and mixed by veteran producer Jack Endino (SOUNDGARDEN, NIRVANA, MUDHONEY), “Walking Papers” features a guest appearance by PEARL JAM guitarist Mike McCready, who played on lead single “The Whole World’s Watching” and “I’ll Stick Around”.

Guitarist/vocalist Jeff Angell and drummer Barrett Martin formed the band last year and played their first shows in Seattle as a duo. They became a trio with the addition of Duff McKagan and a quartet when keyboardist Benjamin Anderson joined the fray. Angell and Martin also served as the album’s co-producers.

One of the U.K.’s finest exponents of traditional metal, PRIMITAI has released the video for its new single, “Scream When You See Us”. The track, which features a guest appearance by JUDAS PRIEST guitarist Richie Faulkner, is described in a press release as “a powerful blast of melodic metal but one that never loses sight of the rich heritage of bands like PRIEST and IRON MAIDEN and having the dextrous six string skills of Faulkner adds a whole new level of intensity.”

“Scream When You See Us” comes off PRIMITAI‘s new album, “Rise Again”, which will be released on October 14.

The debut single from the album, entitled “Fortune Favours The Brave”, was made available on July 31. The track is described in a press release as “a fist-in-the-air, intense slice of no-holds-barred heavy metal.”

Comments PRIMITAI drummer Chris Chilcott: “Mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordström (DREAM EVIL, ARCH ENEMY, SABATON, IN FLAMES, HAMMERFALL, FIREWIND) at Studio Fredman, Gothenburg, Sweden, and recorded by Tom Keech at Stakeout Studios, London, this album represents a year’s worth of blood, sweat and tears. We’re very proud of what we’ve achieved with our latest creation and can’t wait for you guys to hear it.”

PRIMITAI recently announced the addition of guitarist Tom Draper to the group’s ranks. He replaces founding member Nick Saxby, who left the band earlier this year. Tom‘s arrival has added a fresh impetus to proceedings as well as, alongside Srdjan Bilic, some inspired guitar work.

PRIMITAI is:

Guy Miller (vocals)
Tom Draper (guitar)
Srdjan Bilic (guitar)
Jamie Lordcastle (bass)
Chris Chilcott (drums)

A new trailer for SOULFLY‘s ninth album, “Savages”, in which the band’s mainman, Max Cavalera, and his son, SOULFLY drummer Zyon Cavalera, talk about working together on the CD can be seen below.

Zyon, 21, joined SOULFLY as its touring drummer for its recent rampage through North America.

He previously played with SOULFLY during the band’s tour of Brazil in February 2012.

It is Zyon‘s unborn heartbeat that can be heard during the intro of SEPULTURA‘s classic song “Refuse/Resist”, which appeared on the band’s RIAA-gold-certified “Chaos A.D.” album, released three years before Max‘s departure from the group.

“Savages” is scheduled for release on October 4 via the band’s new label home, Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The CD was produced by Terry Date, who is known for his work with such acts as PANTERA, DEFTONES and SOUNDGARDEN, among many others. Guest vocal appearances on “Savages” include SOULFLY bass player Tony Campos, CLUTCH‘s Neil Fallon, NAPALM DEATH‘s Mitch Harris, Jamie Hanks of I DECLARE WAR and Max Cavalera‘s son Igor Cavalera (of LODY KONG).

“Savages” will be released as a limited-edition digpack CD, 2LP vinyl and digital download.

“Savages” track listing:

01. Bloodshed (feat. Igor Cavalera)
02. Cannibal Holocaust
03. Fallen (feat. Jamie Hanks)
04. Ayatollah Of Rock ‘N’ Rolla (feat. Neil Fallon)
05. Master Of Savagery
06. Spiral
07. This Is Violence
08. K.C.S. (feat. Mitch Harris)
09. El Comegente (feat. Tony Campos)
10. Soulfliktion

Limited-edition CD and 2LP vinyl bonus tracks:

11. Fuck Reality
12. Soulfly IX

The official lyric video for“Bloodshed” can be seen below. The track features a guest appearance by Igor Cavalera of LODY KONG.

Comments Max: “The song is about the absurdity of the human condition in territories plagued by bloodshed all over the world. Not just recent events like Iraq, but also historical conflicts such as the U.S. Civil War, World Wars I and II, etc.”

The cover artwork for “Savages” was created by renowned artist Paul Stottler, who is best known for his work on SACRED REICH‘s legendary “Surf Nicaragua” cover.

Date previously mixed SOULFLY‘s “3″ (2002), “Prophecy” (2004) and “Dark Ages” (2005) albums, but had never produced any of the group’s CDs.

Commented Max Cavalera: “Recording ‘Savages’ was an amazing experience for me. I was so excited to work with Terry Date, whom I consider to be one of the best producers of all time. He has done some great records and we have been in contact for awhile since he mixed three SOULFLY albums in the past. He came to see SOULFLY whenever we played in Seattle, and we finally made it work that he would be the producer for ‘Savages’.

“My teammates were awesome. Marc [Rizzo, guitar] did some crazy guitar noises and we did a ‘Mars Part Two’ at the end of ‘El Comegente’; it’s very LED ZEPPELIN-influenced and Marc kicked some ass on it.

“I wrote ‘El Comegente’ with Tony Campos. It’s in Portuguese and Spanish and it’s about Vargas — a Venezuelan cannibal from the ’80s. He is the Hannibal Lecter of the Andes. Crazy shit!

“I worked for the first time on a full album with my son, Zyon. Before recording the album I first worked closely at home with him in preproduction, and it was great to spend weeks on the songs with Zyon, shaping the sound of the record.

Zyon did a great job and he hits really hard just like his uncle Igor.

“It was amazing recording with my son. A whole record! A dream come true for a father whose life is dedicated to metal. ‘Savages’ is a celebration of all that.”

Scottish death/grind powerhouse MAN MUST DIE will will release its new album, “Peace Was Never An Option”, on October 28 in Europe and one day later in North America via Lifeforce Records. The CD features a guest appearance by Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, ex-SEPULTURA) on one song.

The track “On The Verge Of Collapse” can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.

Comments the band: “This album is by far the angriest yet most diverse one we have done yet. It’s the next level for MAN MUST DIE. We couldn’t be happier with how it’s turned out. It’s brutal beyond the word and yet more melodic and memorable than ever.

“With ‘Peace was Never An Option’, we really focused on the songwriting, which is really important in MAN MUST DIE‘s sound, [and] seems to be bypassed a lot in modern music.

“All the classic metal is all about the songs; this is what influences us, this is what we do.”

MAN MUST DIE are an extreme metal band hailing from Glasgow, Scotland. Formed in 2002 and originally born of the founding members’ desire to push their music to new levels of intensity and brutality, the band’s dedication to their craft has since manifested itself in a rich touring history, sharing stages with such acts as EXODUS, MACHINE HEAD and DECAPITATED.

MAN MUST DIE has released three full-length studio albums thus far: 2004′s “…Start Killing” (Retribute Records), “The Human Condition” (2007, Relapse Records) and “No Tolerance For Imperfection” (2009, Relapse Records). Their music manages to incorporate the heaviest elements of extreme metal whilst retaining an attuned sense of melody, confidently shifting from epic, uplifting passages to pure sickness. Augmented by a keen compositional flair and furious, socially aware vocals, MAN MUST DIE is a highly focused musical force.

MAN MUST DIE is:

Joe McGlynn – Vocals
Alan McFarland – Guitar
Dan Firth – Bass
James Burke – Drums

The fifth part of a new video interview with frontman Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven of Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON can be seen below.

SATYRICON‘s new, self-titled studio album was released on September 9 in Norway via Indie Recordings, and in the rest of Europe through Roadrunner Records. The CD, which will be made available on September 17 in North America via Nuclear Blast Entertainment, was produced by Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven and was recorded in Norway, and mixed by Adam Kasper. The effort features a guest appearance by Sivert Høyem, the Norwegian singer best known as the vocalist of the rock band MADRUGADA.

“Satyricon” track listing:

01. Voice Of Shadows
02. Tro Og Kraft
03. Our World, It Rumbles Tonight
04. Nocturnal Flare
05. Phoenix
06. Walker Upon The Wind
07. Nekrohaven
08. Ageless Northern Spirit
09. The Infinity Of Time And Space
10. Natt

Limited-edition CD digipack bonus tracks:

11. Phoenix (Recording Session Mix)
12. Our World, It Rumbles Tonight (Deeper Low Mix)
13. Natt (Wet Mix)

Comments Satyr: “We are back! Sorry it took so long, but we needed the time to be able pull off a record like this.

“Comparing this one to previous records is time wasted, it is SATYRICON; constantly on the move.

“Naming this record ‘Satyricon’ was the most obvious thing in the world. We have never done a record which captures the spirit of this band in such a way. Ever. It will demand a lot from you as a listener, but I know you will love it. It will grow on you and that is why it will stay with you forever.

“We won’t tour as much in the future as we used to, and that will just make every tour more special. This album and this tour is for you and ourselves. It is our moment!”

Speaking to AOL‘s Noisecreep at this year’s Inferno festival, Satyr stated about SATYRICON‘s new album: “To me, it sounds very authentic, it’s organic-sounding. And in this digital age where music is mostly played through computers, a lot of that analog vibe gets lost in translation when you play music through medias like that, but I still wanna do it because there’s nothing quite like it. To me, it just makes everything sound the way it’s supposed to sound — it’s dynamical; the music is alive, it’s not overly compressed, the levels are not pushed. So, musically speaking, it’s a very atmospheric record… This record is full of life. There are a lot of surprises here, but I think it’s gonna be a record that’s gonna help the black metal movement perhaps find a new way for the future.”
