    CD/DVD Releases: Visigoth To Release Debut Album "The Revenant King" Jan 27 On Metal Bl

    Album Release News Artwork And Track Listing Revealed; First Song Streaming

    When the gods called for metal traditional and true, Visigoth answered. The year was 2010, and Jake Rogers allied his bardic magic with Lee Campana's six-string sorcery to forge a tribute to the old sound of heavy metal. Thus the demo "Vengeance" was born.

    Its completion sent tremors throughout the salted wastes of the Salt Lake City underground, attracting the attention of powerful musical forces. Jamison Palmer slung his mighty axe over one shoulder and trudged his way through the ice and snow of this inhospitable realm, lending his soul-rending riffcraft to the legion. He was soon joined by the mystical bass groove thaumaturgies of Matt Brotherton and the unrelenting storm-throned siege of Mikey Treseder's furious drumming. Together, they became known as Visigoth.

    CD/DVD Releases: Contact (Zoombi/Majeure) Debut "First Contact" Out Now
    Posted by nightowl on Wednesday, December 31 @ 18:00:00 PST (78 reads)
    Album Release News Anonymous writes "

    Contact is the new duo of A.E. Paterra (aka Majeure) of famed sci-fi synth-rock group Zombi, and acclaimed British film composer, Paul Lawler. Exploring a similar orbit as Majeure and Zombi, multi-instrumentalist Lawler infuses heavy doses of melody and drama to give First Contact a sound and feel that blends late 70s Pink Floyd sprawl, the nostalgic wonder of early 80s science documentaries, and John Carpenter's 80s sci-fi action films. Equal parts fascinating and euphoric, Contact is two masters of their respective crafts finding common ground in zero gravity.

    CD/DVD Releases: Beardfish Announce Release Of New Album "+4626-COMFORTZONE"
    Posted by nightowl on Monday, December 29 @ 23:00:00 PST (121 reads)
    Album Release News

    Swedish progressive rockers Beardfish have been hard at work on the follow-up to 2013's The Void, and now they are pleased to reveal that their brand new eighth studio album, +4626-COMFORTZONE will be released in North America on the 27th of January 2015.

    The band had this to say about the new album: "The comfort zone is the invisible protective suit of negative thinking, almost like an entity of itself. It's been with you since birth: your parents and your teachers and your friends and your neighbours all teaching you the way the world works - this is how it is and will be and there's nothing you can do about it. The negative vibe is like a voice living inside of you, a companion through life. With time you start to like that voice and the place it takes you to: your comfort zone. I'm so sick and tired of it and I want to address it and maybe in that way start to work my way out of it."
