THE 69 EYES New Single “Gotta Rock” Now Playing

Helsinki’s longest serving gothic rock vampires THE 69 EYES are unstoppable at the moment and have returned with yet another new song “Gotta Rock” – the first to come off their upcoming, as-yet-untitled new full-length slated to drop in early 2023.

“Gotta Rock” lives up to its name. THE 69 EYES version of the track initially premiered on Vain Elämää, the biggest Finnish TV primetime show, in which you could watch singer Jyrki 69 staying in a castle with seven other artists who performed each other’s songs during their time together. “Gotta Rock” is a cover from the famous Finnish hard rock band Boycott that released the rock anthem in the late ‘80s.

For this remake, THE 69 EYES received some famous help, as Jyrki 69 explains, “The Finnish classic rock band Boycott was one of our favorites in the ‘80s when we [started] THE 69 EYES. Due to the Finnish music TV program that I was recently featured in, we finally had a reason to make our own, more gothic rock sounding cover of Boycott’s ultimate classic smash hit ‘Gotta Rock.’ Die Krupps’ Jürgen Engler helped us to arrange it into this darkened mode!”

Further info on the new album from THE 69 EYES will follow very soon. In the meantime, you can still get the limited edition Drive EP, cut in the shape of a steering wheel exclusively handcrafted by Night Of The Vinyl Dead, HERE

About HOST

The origins of HOST do not trace back to the 1999 PARADISE LOST album bearing the same name but instead to the West Yorkshire music clubs of the mid-to-late 1980s. WhileHolmes and Mackintosh were already certified heavy metal fanatics (“metal thrashing mad” as Holmes equates), they were equally drawn to the New Wave and Goth music scenes. The pounding rhythms, sublime melodies and undercurrent of darkness drew them in, creating immediate earworms and a desire to delve further.

Mackintosh finally put plans into motion during the pandemic for a venture that would merge his penchant for sound design with the moods and atmosphere of 1980s dance-pop and Goth. The project was originally a solo pursuit until he asked Holmes, his longtime PARADISE LOST songwriting partner, to join. ‘HOST’ was selected as the name as a tip of the hat to the aforementioned album that found PARADISE LOST in an unprecedented period of experimentation that eschewed their metal roots and also challenged their fanbase in ways like never before.

“We always stood by ‘Host’ as an album,” says Mackintosh. “This project is not totally connected to that album, but some of the ideas are extrapolated. We’re taking the basic premise and trying it out now. And, really, it was something fun and interesting for us to do. We’ve been doing PARADISE LOST for a long time and got an itch to try something different from where PL is now. I could take PL down this route again. Who knows? It may happen if we live long enough, but I thought, ‘Why not now?’ I had the time to do it.”

DieHumane Announces Debut Album “The Grotesque” Coming in Early 2023

DieHumane are proud to announce their debut album The Grotesque in partnership with Ulrich Wild‘s label WURMgroup and The Oracle Management, the management company of Coal Chamber/DevilDriver frontman, Dez Fafara. The album was completed in 2022 and will feature 10 original compositions. The Grotesque was produced and mixed by legendary producer, Ulrich Wild

DieHumane was founded in Galveston, Texas at the end of 2020 by Joshua Vargas and Greg Hilligiest as a way to deal with the loss and isolation of that year. From there it snowballed into something massive, with Garret West (former vocalist of Anova Skyway) being recruited on vocals, Rick Hunolt (former Exodus guitarist) being recruited as the lead guitarist, and Sal Abruscato (former Type O Negative/Life Of Agony drummer, as well as chief musician in A Pale Horse Named Death) being recruited on drums. 

DieHumane is a band that swims about as far away from the other fish as it gets. Combining elements of doom metal, jazz, industrial, blues, and prog. Imagine if Celtic Frost got into a car crash with A Perfect Circle, Nine Inch Nails, and Type O Negative while listening to Pink Floyd on the radio. DieHumane is heavily rooted in mood and atmosphere, from the brooding to the cathartic, from the hopeless to hopeful. Love them or hate them, it’s a musical ride that you can only get from them. 

DieHumane is: 

Garret West-Vocals

Rick Hunolt-Lead Guitars

Joshua Vargas: Bass, Rhythm Guitars, Piano, Programming

Greg Hilligiest: Keys, Programming, additional Guitars

Sal Abruscato: Drums

About DieHumane:

Rick Hunolt: A former member of the pioneering thrash metal band Exodus, Rick is one half of the legendary “H-team” featuring him and Gary Holt. Rick eventually stepped back from Exodus in the early 2000’s to raise his kids and makes his return to music with DieHumane

Garret West: A man of many talents, such as an actor, musician, and stand up comic, Garret is a versatile vocalist and the original singer for the up-and-coming prog band, Anova Skyway

Joshua Vargas: A filmmaker, documentarian, and music video director who has worked on videos for bands/artists such as David Vincent (of Morbid Angel/Vltimas,) Down, Goblin, Skinlab, SOiL, Leonard Cohen, and many more.  

Greg Hilligiest: A multi-instrumentalist and electronics wizard, Greg is the kind of guy that could write you a beautiful song, as well as program your stereo to eat you. 

Sal Abruscato: Founding member and former drummer of the legendary goth metal band, Type O Negative, as well as the former drummer for Life Of Agony, Sal also fronted and was the main songwriter for the doom metal band A Pale Horse Named Death. There’s not much to say that his mark on metal music doesn’t say for itself. In DieHumane, Sal returns to the drum kit and brings the Italian thunder! 

“We here at Oracle Management are very proud to announce that DieHumane has chosen to allow us to represent them. The music belongs in its own category being artistic, heavy, and unique in it’s own rights. There’s seasoned musicians at the helm and one of the best vocalists I’ve heard in many years. Here’s to the future! –Dez Fafara

Mammothor Drops Perfectly Timed Haunting Single “Parasomnia”

Intentionally timed for Spooky Season, Mammothor’s new single, “Parasomnia,” is the sixth track off their latest album, The Ecstasy Of Silence…The Agony Of Dreams.  

Frontman Travis Lowell explains “I’ve always had trouble sleeping. When I was a kid, I suffered from wicked night terrors. My parents even took me to do a sleep study, and doctors did a brain scan to make sure nothing was wrong. I would seemingly wake up, but my mind would still be ‘stuck’ in a nightmare, even though I was walking around with my eyes open. It was terrifying.”

The video was filmed (in a befittingly torturous setting) and edited by Jim Foster of Red 13 Studios (Godsmack, Daughtry, Queensryche, Whitechapel).   Travis Lowell shares “I have worked with Red 13 a few times between Mammothor and my mainstream rock project, Ashes to Embers. One thing they are always good at: location scouting! In this case, we were originally looking for a setting in a large home or mansion…when that didn’t pan out, Red 13 pulled a ‘plan b’…an old, abandoned milk factory! Filming at the factory was a bit of a challenge, mainly because safety has to be a priority while natural lighting is almost non-existent and everything for filming has to be powered by batteries or generators. It was a challenge for the team, for sure, but the results were phenomenal. I’m not sure if the milk factory was haunted or not, but I may or may not have heard some ghostly ‘moos’ from the shadows…”

Special effects artist Amanda Schaffer pulled double-duty, doing the makeup on the dream demon, (who was played by Edgar Troncoso, bassist from Boston-based band Prospect Hill) and starring in the “Parasomnia” video, as well.  

This track, “Parasomnia,” marks a departure from Mammothor‘s typically heavy, driving sound. Bathed in atmosphere, the song feels very dream-like. The music was written by bassist Lori Rulfs and the vocals/lyrics were written by singer Travis Lowell. The band recorded instruments for 2021’s The Ecstasy Of Silence…The Agony Of Dreams with Kevin Billingslea (Lamb Of God) at The Halo Studio in Windham, ME and vocals at Chillhouse Studios with Will Holland (Fall Out Boy). The band tapped Zeuss (Rob Zombie, HATEBREED, Shadows Fall) at Planet-Z in Hadley, MA to mix and master.

Released on August 27, 2021, Mammothor’s third release is the band’s sharpest and most concise effort to date. The band streamlined their sound with laser-focused direction and crisp production to create The Ecstasy Of Silence…The Agony Of Dreams, of which Metal Hammer says, “proves that hard rock and heavy metal are far from over.” 

Bored with the current popular rock music of today, Mammothor strives to return the essence of classic rock sensibility, the thunderous hard rock, heavy metal riffs, and guitar shred of the 80’s, and rounded out with the passion and versatility of 90’s alternative. Mammothor‘s inspirations vary from Megadeth to Iron Maiden, and Faith No More to Soundgarden, which makes their music very multi-faceted.

With nearly a decade of live shows in the heavy metal/hard rock scene, Mammothor has toured with and opened for heavy hitters such as Megadeth, Korn, Three Days Grace, HED(PE), Saliva, and Drowning Pool, garnering over a million streams on YouTube and currently averaging over 27,000 monthly listeners on Spotify. The band is currently in the studio recording its fourth album and playing shows.

Crooked Royals Debut Album “Quarter Life Daydream” Out Now via 3DOT Recordings

Crooked Royals, the New Zealand-based band who’s pandemic era single “Copacetic,” brought the five-piece outfit to international attention, have released their debut album, Quarter Life Daydream via 3DOT Recordings (listen here).

“A lot of us are in our twenties,” explains clean vocalist Christian Cartensen of the inspiration for the album title. “In a quarter life crisis, you’re stuck in that beginner job straight out of university. It’s about the trials and tribulations we’ve gone through writing during the Pandemic and doing those jobs. It’s about balancing the stress we all go through in our twenties. These are referred to as the wasted years where you experiment and see what’s good and what sticks. It’s the main theme of the album.”

Lee Mackley, the band’s heavy vocalist, discusses the band’s approach to the music on the eight-song collection: “We find accessibility between extremes. The vibe can be prog-y and more technical with time changes. Or, it can be a little bit catchier. However, we slap everything on top of the metalcore sound—from rapping to screaming—with big choruses. The idea is to combine those spazzy guitars with melodies and give you the whole package.”

In the lead up to the release of Quarter Life Daydream, the band released a trio of videos: the performance driven clip for “Glass Hands” , the narrative video for “Ill Manor” , and a nod to mental health with the footage for “Counterfeit” .

Crooked Royals is Christian Carstensen (clean vocals), Lee Mackley (heavy vocals), Jake Andrews (guitar), Keane Gilles (drums), and Conor Lawson (bass)

Nita Strauss Enlists Vocals From Alissa White-Gluz On Brand New Single “The Wolf You Feed”

Superstar guitarist and unstoppable force of nature, “Hurricane” NITA STRAUSS, has dropped brand new single and accompanying music video, “The Wolf You Feed“, today. The epic, headbanger of a track features huge, chunky, metallic riffs and the insane vocal talent of ALISSA WHITE-GLUZ of Arch Enemy. Stream the new track on your platform of choice HERE and watch the music video below. 

Speaking on her new release, NITA shares

If you look back at old interviews from the last ten years, any time I was asked about collaborating with a vocalist in the future, Alissa White-Gluz was always the first name out of my mouth. She is truly one of my favorite vocalists and performers in the industry and creating this track together was everything I hoped it would be!

I’m very proud to release this track, especially now with everything else that’s going on. This time in history, whether in politics, music, social media, or our personal lives, has been an eye opening look into the two wolves of a lot of people out there, and maybe this song will be a reminder that we all have the ability to choose how we respond to things.

The lyrics of this song were inspired by “The Story of the Two Wolves”, a legend widely attributed to Native American storytellers.

An old grandfather was teaching his grandson about life:

“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.

“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil–he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”

He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you–and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf will win?”

The grandfather simply replied, “The one you feed”.

ALISSA adds 

Nita and I finally got to collaborate – something we have both wanted to do for years! The Wolf You Feed is a kickass, catchy metal track with a really cool vibe. I kept the “two wolves” analogy as a foundation throughout the song while playing up the dichotomy of the two sides of the tug-of-war we all have inside us. I recorded my parts in my home studio and it was an absolute pleasure to build this song with Nita. I am honoured to be a part of it! Can’t wait to do this again!

Wolf You Feed“, is the second song Nita has released featuring a star guest vocalist, the first being the enormously successful “Dead Inside” which featured guest vocals from Disturbed’s David Draiman and saw NITA become the first ever solo female to have a #1 hit at Active Rock Radio. She also returned to her instrumental roots earlier this year with the release of single “Summer Storm”, a fast-paced, emotive shred-fest. Combined, the two singles have had 3.5 million YouTube views and over 10 million streams on Spotify alone. 

Diamante Releases ‘The Diamond Covers’ EP and New Video For “Maniac”

Charismatic chanteuse DIAMANTE has today dropped her new EP ‘The Diamond Covers’ (via Anti-Heroine) weaving her distinctive magic into a variety of popular hits including Madonna’s iconic Like A Prayer and pop high priestess Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill. In celebration of today’s release, DIAMANTE has also dropped a new music video for her take on Maniac. Speaking on today’s news, she comments:

‘The Diamond Covers’ is a collection of my favorite songs and my homage to everything I love about the 80s: glam and rock n’ roll. In the inspiration and process of reimagining these songs, I untapped a new sound that defines who I am artistically: a mixture of sparkle and grit… and with that, this EP now serves as a sneak preview of what my next body of work will be sonically.

Prior to today, DIAMANTE released a freshly reimagined take of her song American Dream featuring rock band Lit which has amassed nearly 380,000 views on YouTube and counting. Stream ‘The Diamond Covers’ here, watch the video for Maniac below.

BUTCHER BABIES Deliver Heavy Metal Cover of Saweetie & Doja Cat’s “Best Friend”

Leading femme fatales CARLA HARVEY and HEIDI SHEPHERD of the Los Angeles-based heavy metal group BUTCHER BABIES celebrate their decade-plus friendship by putting their own heavy metal spin on the hit single “Best Friend,” originally performed by rapper/singers Saweetie and Doja Cat. Alongside its release across digital streaming platforms today, Friday, October 28, BUTCHER BABIES have shared a music video which shows the duo engaging in various activities including donning black metal face paint and partying at a strip club. Watch it streaming below.

“During the last 15 as Butcher Babies, we have proved that a strong friendship can and will withstand all,” states SHEPHERD. “When I first heard this song by Saweetie & Doja Cat, I knew that we needed to be the ones to bring this into the metal world. With our un-breakable bond, Carla and I just grow stronger each time we play this to a live audience. It’s a true anthem of female power, screaming, ‘we are stronger together.’ I am truly honored to scream this song along my best friend.”

“Nearly fifteen years ago Heidi and I started Butcher Babies as best friends,” says HARVEY. “In a world where women are often pitted against each other, we instead chose to celebrate each other and grow together. The song ‘Best Friend’ is the perfect anthem to describe our relationship; as soon as we heard the Saweetie and Doja Cat original, we knew we were the only band that could cover it…it was written for us!”

Guitarist HENRY FLURY adds: “It was difficult to figure out how to approach covering this song. So, I told Heidi to get on the mic and just go for it. When I heard how ferocious it was, the riff just came to me. We had the song done in about 10 minutes.”

Claiming their spot as metal icons, BUTCHER BABIES have been crushing stages worldwide with their vicious live performance and explosive energy for nearly 15 blistering years. Their stage presence is a hypnotic spectacle that leaves audiences hungry for more as displayed on previous tours alongside acts such as Megadeth, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Five Finger Death Punch, Danzig, In This Moment, Hollywood Undead, Cradle of Filth and Black Label Society, as well as on music festivals including Mayhem, Download (UK), Hellfest (France), Knotfest (US & Japan), Wacken (Germany), Soundwave (AUS), Hell and Heaven (Mexico), Rock on The Range, Carolina Rebellion, Louder Than Life, Aftershock, Welcome to Rockville and more. BUTCHER BABIES are currently on the last leg of their European tour supporting Swedish metal outfit Amaranthe alongside Germany’s Beyond The Black which ends in Stockholm, SE on November 12.

With three albums and two EPs under their belt, including their latest full length 2017 release LILITH which debuted at #1 on iTunes Metal charts and #7 on iTunes Rock charts, BUTCHER BABIES juxtapose brutal, aggressive riffs with beautiful melodies that wail with emotional redemption. The group–vocalist HEIDI SHEPHERD and CARLA HARVEY, guitarist HENRY FLURY and drummer CHASE BRICKENDEN–are set to release their fourth album in 2023 which reflects their growth as a band over the past decade. Stay tuned for further news in the coming months. 

Colony House announces album and new single “Landlocked Surf Rock”

And announces national tour for 2023

Nashville-based rock band, Colony House, has announced their fourth full-length studio album, The Cannonballers, out February 3rd, 2023. The news is accompanied by the release of the single, “Landlocked Surf Rock,” an apt description of the band’s signature sound and a tribute to their home state of Tennessee.

“We’ve always struggled to put a label on Colony House or at least be defined by one singular genre… That was until we uncovered this one minute and fifty-four-second little ditty,” frontman Caleb Chapman explains. “With half of us being Nashville natives and all of us being Tennessee natives, we wanted to write a love letter to our hometown and all of its charm and all of its absurdities. ‘LandLocked Surf Rock’ is our ‘Sweet Home Alabama’… There, I said it.”

Caleb was inspired to write the songs that became The Cannonballers while being locked down at home in 2020. “The pandemic was the first time since high school that I had been off the road for an entire year. We got to see the seasons change and experience our home again for the first time in a long time,” he says. “I think I was falling back in love with Tennessee and realizing how special it is to be born and raised in such a beautiful place.”

Comprised of Caleb Chapman (vocals, guitar), his brother Will Chapman (drums), Scott Mills (guitar), and Parke Cottrell (bass), Colony House has continued to unite fans under its banner of hope and light in a world that feels more divided every day. No frills, no gimmicks. Just heart-level rock and roll music. The Colony House catalog is as weighty and intelligent as it is light and approachable. Three previously released studio albums invite the listener on a journey through stories of loss, grief, and heartbreak while welcoming them into the hope that comes on the other side. Their 2014 debut, When I Was Younger, included the instantly popular single “Silhouettes,” which became the #1 most played track on Sirius XM’s Alt Nation for four months straight. The band followed with their sophomore album, Only the Lonely, whose title and demeanor pay tribute to the vintage sounds of Roy Orbison and the Beach Boys. The surf-rock hit, “You Know It,” reached mega-viral status on Tik Tok, and has vaulted to over 100 million streams across all platforms after being featured as the soundtrack to Samsung Mobile’s nationwide ad campaign. The band has performed their songs for worldwide audiences with two appearances on both Late Night with Seth Meyers and CONAN, as well as The Today Show, VH1’s “Morning Buzz,” and MTV Live.

The band’s third effort, Leave What’s Lost Behind, was released in January of 2020, before a global pandemic would challenge listeners to do just that. They managed to make it through half of their headline tour before being forced to pause alongside the rest of the world. Like many artists, they found different ways to continue to create. In addition to beginning work on The Cannonballers, Colony House produced and directed a full-length feature film, Everybody’s Looking For Some Light, which was an official selection at the Nashville and Knoxville Film Festivals. The movie debuted at a two-day drive-in event produced by the band at Greystone Quarry in Franklin, TN. Over 2,000 people (in over 600 cars) showed up to watch the film and see Colony House perform.

Last year saw the release of Colony House Live, Vol. 1, and the EP, Rotten Tomatoes. In support of that EP, they were able to return to the road, headlining 30 dates in the US before their first overseas headline tour in 2022. They have also been part of several festival lineups, including Shaky Knees, Austin City Limits, Firefly, WonderBus, and Lollapalooza.

The recent single, “Cannonballers,” was Colony House’s first offering of 2022. The single premiered on Sirius XM’s Alt Nation Advanced Placement, and the video has amassed over 300k views in under a month. Propelled by a guitar riff recalling a roller coaster’s thrilling twists and turns, the song left listeners eager to hop back in line for another ride. The album title came from that amusement park muse – the Wabash Cannonball at Opryland USA – as well as the representation of duality that all people embody and experience.

The Cannonballers almost felt like another band name, an alter ego… on the one hand, a cannonballer could be a carefree kid, jumping through the air and finding their purpose in the size of splash they can create by jumping into a pool. They have all the time in the world. There is a beautiful naivety to that; it is simple and youthful,” expounds Caleb. “On the other hand, a cannonballer could be a road rallyist who enjoys speeding on the open road. A driver with complete disregard for authority. Someone who is in a hurry and needs that adrenaline kick to keep going.” He continues, “I think we are a pendulum swinging in the balance between these two characters. On any given day, we could be one or the other.”
