Gothenburg act Bombus not only put a lot of blood, sweat and beers in the recording of the band’s Century Media Records debut “The Poet and the Parrot,” but also in creating the artwork. This isn’t just another Photoshop crime: this is handcrafted original art done by former bass player Ulf Lundèn.

Cack Blabbath conducted an interview with Canadian metal innovators VOIVOD on August 9 at the Bloodstock Open Air festival at Catton Hall, Walton-On-Trent, West Midlands, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.

VOIVOD‘s new album, “Target Earth”, sold around 1,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD was issued on January 22 via the band’s own company, Iron Gang Factory, and Century Media.

VOIVOD‘s previous album, “Infini”, opened with around 840 units back in July 2009.

“Target Earth” was recorded in early 2012 at Pierre Rémillard‘s (OBLIVEON, CRYPTOPSY, KRISIUN, MISERY INDEX) Wild Studio in a small town called St-Zénon in Quebec, Canada and was mixed by Sanford Parker (PELICAN, NACHTMYSTIUM). The follow-up to 2009’s “Infini” contains the band’s first music to be written with guitarist Dan Mongrain (MARTYR) following the passing of original axeman Denis “Piggy” D’Amour in 2005. The original art was once again drawn by drummer Michel “Away” Langevin and features color schemes from each one of the band’s previous albums.

So, after the somewhat mixed reaction to this:

Avenged Sevenfold have revealed the final and official cover for new album Hail To The King! Check it out…

Definitely different. Do you prefer the OTT, fantasy-themed original art or the back-to-basics, Waking The Fallen/self-titled-esque newie? Let us know, yeah?

Barely minutes after releasing brand new single Hail To The King, Avenged Sevenfold have released the full tracklisting for the album of the same name, as well as announced a US tour with Sacramento legends Deftones and Swedish occult masters Ghost (or Ghost BC, as they’re called across the pond).

The tour will take place this October and kicks off in Chicago, IL on Thursday, October 3, wrapping up on October 26 in Las Vegas, NV. Have a look at the album tracklist below:

Hail To The King Tracklisting

Shepherd of Fire
Hail to the King
Doing Time
This Means War
Requiem
Crimson Day
Heretic
Coming Home
Planets
Acid Rain

Hail To The King is the follow-up to 2010′s Nightmare and will land on August 26, and will be the first Avenged album to feature no writing credits from The Rev, who tragically passed away in 2009.

November 2013

Saturday 30 Manchester Arena

December 2013

Sunday 1 Wembley Arena, London

Thursday 5 LG Arena, Birmingham
