On Wednesday, September 25, San Antonio, Texas’ Kens5.com conducted an interview with DEF LEPPARD members Rick Savage (bass) and Joe Elliott (vocals). You can now watch the segment below.

DEF LEPPARD‘s recent Las Vegas extravaganza will hit the silver screen for two nights in October. NCM Fathom Events together with AEG Live and Network Live are bringing DEF LEPPARD “Viva! Hysteria” concert to over 250 theaters across the country with a full front-to-back performance of 1987’s multi-platinum “Hysteria” album — along with a healthy dose of the band’s greatest hits. Tickets for the screenings are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, Joe Elliott shed some light DEF LEPPARD‘s recent Vegas residency at the 4,000-capacity Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, explaining, “We’ve been asked for many years if we’d ever play an album in its entirety, and the answer was always no because we’d be out promoting a new album. Then in March and April 2013 when we had no new music to promote, we had a chance to revisit arguably our most important album. It was an easy decision to make.”

He went on to say that the stigma involved in rock musicians playing “Sin City” has long passed: “As for Vegas, it’s no longer perceived as the place crooners go to die! Artists like MÖTLEY CRÜE, ELTON JOHN, GUNS N’ ROSES and CHEAP TRICK have recently done residencies and rock n’ roll has definitely moved in! So, there was no better place for us to take the show. It was a fantastic experience for us and for our fans.”

Joe Elliott told The Pulse Of Radio that the band’s humble beginnings back in England never even hinted at where they’d be today. “35 years after starting out in a little school in Sheffield, and then the next thing we’re doing a residency in Vegas,” he said. “It was never on the agenda back then, y’know? But being in a band more than seven or eight years wasn’t either. So, at this moment in time you’re just kinda making things up as you go along, because, things just keep appearing for us. Like; ‘Hey — you guys fancy doing this?’ ‘Well, that’s something we’ve never done.’ And as soon as we can say that out loud, it’s appealing for us to do it, ”cause it gets you off the treadmill.”

The theatrical showings will be followed by a companion DVD, Blu-ray and live album that Elliott tells Billboard.com will chronicle “the whole shebang” — not only the “Hysteria” set but all of the other songs DEF LEPPARD played over the two nights the show was filmed.

“VIVA! Hysteria – Live at the Joint, Las Vegas” will be made available on CD, Blu-ray disc, DVD Video, and digital download in October at your favorite music retailer.

Norwegian black metallers SARKOM have inked a two-album deal with Dark Essence Records. The band’s third full-length CD, titled “Doomsday Elite”, will be released later this year.

“Doomsday Elite” track listing:

01. Doomsday Elite
02. I Utakt Med Gud
03. No Loose Ends
04. Inside a Haunted Chapel
05. Predators in Disguise
06. Solemn Disorder ’til Human Extinction
07. Cosmic Intellect
08. Stigma

Formed in 2003 in Oslo, Norway, by frontman Erik Unsgaard (SO MUCH FOR NOTHING) and then-drummer Eirik Renton (ex-URGEHAL), SARKOM, whose core members comprise Unsgaard on vocals and Sgt. V. (SVARTTJERN) on bass, will shortly present a new live lineup, ready for the release of “Doomsday Elite”, something Unsgaard is feeling very positive about.

“Regarding our collaboration with Dark Essence Records,” the frontman said, “we are very much looking forward to working with everyone at the label. I’ve heard a lot of positive things, and hopefully they are in the right position to take SARKOM one step further on this journey of ours!”

Commenting on the new album and SARKOM‘s place in the black metal scene, Unsgaard went on to say: “It is said that black metal is about individuality and not following trends. I am not saying that SARKOM is a black metal band, but it sure is extreme enough and most likely that is how we will be categorized. Personally, I don’t mind what label people tag us with, but with this album I can say that we have gone beyond the borders of what is accepted within the ‘scene,’ at least the scene as defined by those who see themselves as ‘true.’ According to the trend nowadays, which has absolutely nothing to do with what black metal is actually about, we should probably have played either old school heavy/prog or occult trash/black metal to gain maximum publicity. But fuck that. We do what we want and that’s exactly how it should be. We also have no intention of repeating ourselves and it is my hope, and intention, that SARKOM will keep developing in the future, in one way or the other. I am sure that some SARKOM fans are expecting another ‘Bestial Supremacy’ and they will be surprised by ‘Doomsday Elite’. With four songwriters from different backgrounds this is, and is meant to be, an album without boundaries. Hopefully you will like it, but if not, you can always listen to ‘Skyforger’ or something,”

Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of Norwegian black metal act Koldbrann. The label commented:

“The Norwegian horde’s third full length album will hit stores through Season of Mist’s Underground Division in early 2013. Koldbrann will debut ‘Totalt Sjelelig Bankerott,’ a 7″ single including a song from the forthcoming album (title pending) and an exclusive B side entitled ‘Kasjtjeijs Svøpe’ on Nov. 16th. The single will also be available digitally. Koldbrann’s first two albums ‘Nekrotisk Inkvisition’ and ‘Moribund’ will be re-issued via Season of Mist, along with 2008′s ‘Stigma: På kant med livet’ EP.”

“Koldbrann is pleased to announce that from this moment on, Season of Mist will be handling our nekrotic business,” vocalist Mannevond states. “As one of the leading dealers of aural blasphemy, we are confident that they will serve as the tool needed to spread our gospel of oppression. We have kept you waiting, but rest assured, we have been striving in our cellars, slowly and persistently chiseling out our utmost arrogant and depraved work to date. Sordid details will follow. The time is ripe, let the end times roll!”
