“HardDrive” producer Roxy Myzal recently conducted an interview with the five members of KORN. You can now watch the chat below.

KORN‘s eleventh studio album, “The Paradigm Shift” (Prospect Park), sold 46,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 8 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on October 8, 2013 via Prospect Park.

“The Paradigm Shift” is the first KORN disc to feature guitarist Brian “Head” Welch since 2003’s “Take A Look In The Mirror” and follows up 2011’s dubstep experiment, “The Path Of Totality”.

Welch told Rolling Stone that the new album has “the old KORN vibe, but with a new twist . . . The end product is a really good mix of old KORN mixed with some new elements. It’s got a fresh new KORN 2013 sound.”

Welch left KORN in 2005 after he converted to Christianity and got off drugs. He rejoined them for a handful of live performances in 2012 before officially becoming part of the lineup again in early 2013.

– March 17th, 2014 – Swedish Folk Metal experts FALCONER have finished the recordings for their 8th album “ Black Moon Rising “, scheduled for release on June, 6th of this year. The band comments: “So now the mix and mastering is done for BLACK MOON RISING. After having a break from the studio and then returning my first impression was: “Was it that much double bass drums?” I’m sure this album will compete with NORTHWIND as being my favourite album though they are not alike.

Dread Sovereign

Dread Sovereign: titans of torment

Clearly not content with fronting the classic metal supergroup Twilight Of The Gods and contributing two traditional music reinterpretations to the forthcoming One And All, Together, For Home compilation (listen to one of them here), Primordial vocalist Alan Nemtheanga has turned his restless muse to the archaic atmospheres of epic doom. The result is All Hell’s Martyrs, the debut full-length from Dublin’s Dread Sovereign – an album one year in the making, but one that sounds like it’s been simmering over the flames of the Inquisition for a good few centuries.

Released on Ván Records on March 21, All Hell’s Martyrs is vast in its scope as it casts its unblinking gaze over aeons of religious persecution and dogma, summoning the spirits of Candlemass and Manilla Road, but providing a unique perspective on classic doom as the album builds its way to a soul-shattering, unforgettable conclusion. Thanks to the benevolent folk at Ván, Metal Hammer is proud to host an exclusive stream of the album in its full, all-castigating glory. Abandon all hope, enter the portal below and have a magnificently grimm St Patrick’s day of reckoning!

More touring followed, including a stint opening MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s “Saints Of Los Angeles” tour.

Riff-Mag.com conducted an interview with vocalist Derrick Green of Brazilian/American metallers SEPULTURA before the band’s February 6 concert at O2 Academy Islington in London, England. You can now watch the chat below.

SEPULTURA‘s new album, “The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart”, sold around 1,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD came out on October 29, 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Although it was inspired by Fritz Lang‘s classic 1927 movie “Metropolis”, “The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart” is not a concept album or a soundtrack like its precedessors “Dante XXI” (based on “The Divine Comedy”) and “A-Lex” (based on “A Clockwork Orange”).

“The Mediator Between The Head And Hands Must Be The Heart” was tracked over a 40-day period at producer Ross Robinson‘s (KORN, LIMP BIZKIT, SLIPKNOT) studio in Venice, California and was mixed and mastered by co-producer Steve Evetts, who previously worked with SEPULTURA on the “Nation” (2001), “Revolusongs” (2002) and “Roorback” (2003) albums, in addition to having collaborated with Ross on a number of other projects in the past.

In a 2013 interview with Live-Metal.net, SEPULTURA singer Derrick Green stated about the new album title: “We always have the simple one-word titles or very basic. And with this we knew what we wanted to do. We wanted to maybe make people think a little bit.

“I think we have become lobotomized, including myself, because I’m not putting myself outside of anything. I think a lot of times we live in a time where people are thinking actions or creating ideas — doing something in their head but going right to their hands. And they’re missing the essential part, the heart and the compassion, that’s behind what you are doing. And (the title) came from a movie called ‘Metropolis’ (1927) by a director called Fritz Lang, and it’s a silent movie. And it’s actually the first thing you see in the movie. And the meaning behind it is just that: It’s impossible to be human without having the heart dictate what you’re doing and why you’re doing certain things.

“So I believe this album has that passion and drive and love for music.

“So many things I’ve been hearing are just about trying to be perfect, with the digital age and trying to make everything sound perfect. Like on albums and things like that, it doesn’t even sound real. It doesn’t sound human anymore. So this is something going back to really trying not to be perfect. We’re trying to pull out that love and desire and just grabbing that moment, placing it on an album and recording it, and not being worried about those other things.”
