“Brazilian all-female thrash group NERVOSA will release its third full-length album, “Downfall Of Mankind”, on June 1 via Napalm Records. The disc was recorded at Family Mob Studio in São Paulo with Argentinian producer Martin Furia, who worked as a sound engineer on some of NERVOSA’s European tours, as well as for bands like DESTRUCTION and FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, and produced recordings for EVIL INVADERS and SISTERS OF SUFFOCATION, among others.
Bassist/vocalist Fernanda Lira comments on the new CD: “We’re really happy about this new album. It’s a way more mature and aggressive record and we can definitely say it’s our favorite so far!”
“Downfall Of Mankind” features guest appearances by João Gordo (RATOS DE PORÃO), Rodrigo Oliveira (KORZUS) and Michael Gilbert (FLOTSAM AND JETSAM).

In a 2016 interview, Fernanda told AntiHero Magazine that NUCLEAR ASSAULT was “the band that made me want to have a thrash metal band. I don’t think I was even born when they were released,” she said. “I was born into a very metal environment, because my dad was a metalhead. My earliest memories involved metal. When I was six or seven, I had collections that my dad used to record on tape. He would put on from KISS to SUICIDAL TENDENCIES to WARLOCK. So since I was very young, I was used to listening to metal. And because my dad is older, he was really into the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. So I started listening to metal from these bands of the 1980s. That’s my favorite school. All the bands I love, and my favorite albums, are from the 1980s. It’s something natural. My dad showed me them, and when I started looking for bands’ discographies, I would start from the beginning, and naturally the albums from the 1980s. And, of course, with the exception of death metal, my favorite albums are from the 1990s. But it was just sort of natural, it’s just that sound, probably because I’m very influenced by what my dad used to listen to. All the classic albums are from the old school, and I’m really influenced by these schools.”
She added: “What I think we do is we take these influences we have from the bands of the 1980s, which are the bands that made me want to have a thrash metal band, and taught me how to write metal songs, we take that and mix… like the quality of technology of today and new albums from old bands like TESTAMENT and CANNIBAL CORPSE, and put it all together.”
NERVOSA is:
Fernanda Lira – Vocals, Bass

The Sacramento-based quintet GRAVESHADOW – who deftly mixes symphonic/gothic metal with elements of doom, thrash and epic progressive power metal – have built asteady following in the Western United States in recent years through regional tours and performances alongside the likes of Arkona, Children of Bodom, Apocalyptica, Marty Friedman, Death Angel, Flotsam and Jetsam and Anvil. After self-releasing an EP in 2014, the group signed with Belgium’s Mausoleum Records for the release of their debut full-length, 2015’s acclaimed Nocturnal Resurrection, praised by Metal Temple as an “epic melody of steel with a fusion of what we all love in metal.”

In 2017, the group signed with M-Theory Audio and continued to tour aggressively while also working on their second album, Ambition’s Price. Packed with crushing guitars, beautiful keyboard melodies, thundering bass, earth-shattering drums and powerful vocals that range from operatic highs to unearthly growls, the album’s music creates a rich and dynamic atmosphere that is ripe for storytelling. Whether it is a tale of personal struggle or of fantastical creatures, the listener is sure to find themselves immersed in a world apart.

Produced and mixed by Armand John Anthony (Night Demon, The Fucking Wrath, Gygax), and mastered by Colin Davis at Imperial Mastering (Deeds of Flesh, Decrepit Birth, Origin), “Ambition’s Price” features stunning cover artwork by Serbian fantasy graphic designer Dusan Markovic (Jag Panzer, Mystic Prophecy, Seven Kingdoms). Highlights include the stunning “Hero Of Time” (which features a guest solo by Anthony), the epic three-part “Call of the Frostwolves” and the powerful “Doorway To Heaven.”

GRAVESHADOW – managed by Jeff Keller for The Artery Foundation (Destruction, Arsis, Sirenia) – is poised and ready to leave a lasting impact within the metal community. With an electrifying stage show and a sound as large as the Dragons of Westeros, they are as talented as they are unforgettable

As a GOTHIC METAL-age / AVANT-GARDE-age/ DEATH METAL-age Publication.  These ages started in 1993/ 1987 / 1990 respectively. We cover any World-Class Heavy Metal artist, no matter the genre, and no matter what part of the World, they come from. As a specialized press for Scandinavian and Norwegian Gothic Metal/ Horror Metal/ Dark Metal/ Avant-Garde Metal, KILLER GODLY KICK ASS METAL comes from all over planet metal.

 

Heavy Metal BIBLE Chapter Graveshadow

All the KICK ASS METAL is interconnected, through the history of the genre.

 

All bands featured in these pages are World-Class Heavy Metal artist. And on a live front Graveshadow is one of the greatest live bands of the Golden Age of True Metal which has it beginnings with the Nerovsa “2012” EP and The Abnromality “Contaminating The Hive Mind”.

 

Last night at one the KICK ASS METAL offices, at all 5 we have the top 700 metal albums of all-time, in Military Lockers on Wheels, in the event of a “act of god” which is a insurance term, grab the relevant most important albums in the genres’ history, roll it out the door…. I opened that thing up, in one of our offices and fuck yea, Graveshadow “Nocturnal Ressurection”it was there, like i knew it would be!!! Graveshadow “Ambitons Price” will be added to these top 700 albums of all-time box, each sub-genre we have a Sacred 700 and from these styles we choose a top 100 from each sub-genre.

 

As far as top 100 albums, Graveshadow will be on the top 100 albums of 2015/ 2018 list, BOTH “Nocturnal Ressurection” & “Ambitons Price” both are KICK ASS METAL HEAVY METAL HALL OF FAME ALBUMS, TOP 100 albums of the current GOLDEN AGE OF TRUE METAL August 16th 2012 top Present….for hopefully i can petition the hall of fame committee here, to have Graveshadow moved into other top 100 list….but for now, these are the KICK ASS METAL HEAVY METAL HALL OF FAME achievements. Here are other achievements Graveshadow has in life since there foundation in 2013

2016 “Sammie” (Sacramento Area Music Awards) winner for best Metal band

2016 “Sammie” nominee for “Artist of the Year” and “Release of the Year”

2015 “Sammie” nominee for best Metal band

 

KICK ASS METAL has everything in common with Metal Maidens Print Editions and webZine, THE GODLY Sonic Cathedral webZine, Avant-Garde Metal Print Editions, as well as the work of George L. McHard….keep in mind i am influecend from the acutal heavy metal press of the actual era of heavy metal and i visit no WEBZINE unless they had a print edition from 1981 to 1991, i never stop reading the actual heavy metal press after the internet-age of 2004 happened.

Was reading a Fanzine all-night when listening to this album Graveshadow “Ambitions Price” all-night!!!!

 

Seeing these METAL GODS and METAL LEGENDS Graveshadow, share the stage with Anvil (GODS/LEGENDS), Night Demon (GODS/LEGENDS)…whoa !!!!

Easily one of the best concerts I have seen in 2017  for sure a top 25 concert of that year, i see tons of my favorite favorite artist live, and Graveshadow RULES on Stage….hopefully they are around this part of planet metal the upcoming years

 

Heather Michele is one of my favorite World-Class Vocalist of all-time, and Graveshadow is one of the most convincing metal live acts around these days, if your a  insane metal maniac die-hard true fan  of Heavy Metal with Symphonic/ Gothic/ Doom elements of Power Metal/ Thrash Metal mixed with then Graveshadow is our highest recommendation, in the Heavy Metal realm. The Symphonic/ Gothic element of heavy metal comes from classical music, which I have been a fan of since May 17th 1967….lifelong fan of this style of music.

 

On November 13th 2015

Graveshadow unleashed on Planet Metal, “Nocturanl Ressurection”

one of the best Heavy Metal/ Symphonic Metal/ Gothic Metal styled albums of that year, decade, and is a GOLD STANDARD album in this style.  GOLD STANDAND is a NOUN and means the best, most reliable, or most prestigious thing of its kind. In this case were talking about a GOTHIC Metal/ Symphonic Metal album as a GOTHIC METAL-age HEAVY METAL publication. I cover all GOTHIC & GOTHIC METAL across every specturm ROCK/METAL/CLASSICAL/AVANT-GARDE. If this belongs more on the Symphonic Metal Heavy Metal History list, then so be it. As a GOTHIC/AVANT-GARDE metal based publication. This for sure is a KICK ASS METAL album and belongs in these pages just as much IF NOT MORE THAN ANY OTHER BAND IN THESE PAGES !!!

 

As a heavy metal fan since 1978, we listen to alot of KEYBOARD based heavy metal a true believer of this style, since those heavy metal albums like that were released in the early 1980’s. And without a doubt Valerie Hudak, is a top-notch World-Class Keyboard Player in our GENRE !!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Like i said earlier, I have Graveshadow “Nocturnal Ressurection” and “Ambitions Price”  were added to the top 700 most important Heavy Metal albums of all-time list, and is shelved in every Music Library in all my houses. Keep in mind there are 7 top 700 heavy metal best albums list (heavy, power, thrash, death, black…) aka Sacred 700’s and from that 4,900 albums i made a top 700 albums military footlocker in the event of a “act of god”….these album is in the same box as Vintage Metallica, Iron Maiden……you know these pages inside out, you will figure it out!!!

 

As a Gothic Metal fan i am a huge fans of Heather Michele’s work from GraveShadow especailly because i am a huge fan of the Beauty and the Beast Vocalist configuration, and her twist on this style is highly enjoyable, because she offers a savior solution for ALL GOTHIC FEMALE VOCALIST OF THE FUTURE….and Heather Michele’s Growls are some of the best in that style, and this comes from a TOTAL Cradle of Filth/ Abnormality / Threatre of Tragedy….etc metal fanatic.

I do own the Helion Prime “Helion Prime”  1st ALBUM

 

Is Sarah Teets on this TOP 100 HEAVY METAL ALBUMS OF ALL-TIME LIST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TOP 100 albums 20th century and 21st century for the TOP 100 albums on this list if a album is out of print, it is not a top 100 album, band that are active like MindMaze are on the top 100 list…..

First and Last and Always”, to name a specific metal genre as gothic, which makes the oh-so renowned and overabused gothic metal term, this specific metal genre MUST have references and influences from the gothic rock/dark wave scene from the 80s. Apparently, without any second thought and a shadow of doubt, many bands from this so-called commercial and big scene are not gothic metal because they have not a single reference from the gothic rock/dark wave scene of the 80s. It really is something funny for metalheads that know nothing about this scene to speak about gothic music. But what is even more funny is the fact that part of the metal scene dislikes goths and when you ask them “which people do you refer to as goths?” you get the answer “those people, man, that paint their eyes black and listen to Marilyn Manson endlessly”, even from this you can get that a big part of the metal scene really has nothing to do in knowledge and experience about the gothic subculture, its bands and its audience. And thus this over-confusion passes in the gothic metal scene.
You see, the gothic subculcture has all these chicks dressed in black, with the cute faces, the beautiful make up and stuff, yes, I know, they are beautiful, I adore them as well, but, sadly, when a female-fronted metal band starts sounding a bit more symphonic/atmospheric or even a bit melancholic and has a female singer, preferably cute that stands as the front of the band and wears all these beautiful scarlet or velvet or black dresses with flowers and stuff, people start referring to this band as gothic metal, for no reason apparently. A female singer that has a more obscure and “poetic” dress-code won’t make a band a gothic one, apparently, it’s the music that matters, not the supposed dress-code. And so we come to bands like Evanescence, Lacuna Coil, Within Temptation, Epica, After Forever and so on, well, these bands have nothing to do, more or less each one of them (or used to have a slight reference but they have nothing to do anymore), with the gothic metal genre, the only common thing they have as bands is that they are female-fronted, does this make them gothic metal? No, for fuck’s sake no! Ok, they have their own atmosphere each one of them, they have some strong female vocalists, some good tunes, others more others less, but that’s all people; no gothic elements, no gothic metal.
If you want some bands with female vocalists that actually play gothic metal then you should definitely check Tristania of the first era (who can deny that “Widow’s Weeds” has gothic rock elements? I’ll give the answer, no-one can because these elements are present in the guitar work; and let’s not forget the gothic rock guest male vocals on “Angellore” ), Theatre Of Tragedy of the first three releases, yes, they are gothic metal, and not because Liv Kristine used to wear black dresses and have that absolute female gothic look, just check the music, apparently gothic metal, then come Trail Of Tears, their first releases are also strong and gothic metal, really good work and it seems to me at times that the gothic metal scene including female vocals blossomed in Norway, judging from the bands I mentioned above. And of course I shouldn’t skip to mention Sirenia, the band Morten Veland formed after he left Tristania, another wonderful gothic metal act, with intense gothic rock elements, even the hat in the vein of The Sisters Of Mercy/The Fields Of The Nephilim is present, hehe (if you don’t believe me ask Mr. Veland and check Elusive’s debut album, “Destination Zero”, to see which are his influences; for the history, Elusive are a rising gothic rock act from Norway and Veland played the guitars on this album) and of course I shouldn’t skip to mention Beseech, they have female vocals as well in their compositions, but they are a 50%-50% female-male fronted band now, with balanced male and female vocals. Just check their first two releases, pure romantic gothic/doom metal with The Fields Of The Nephilim references being too intense, both in guitar parts filled with gothic rock riffing and vocal lines in which the first singer of the band sounds like a reincarnation of Carl McCoy. And of course I shouldn’t skip to mention As Divine Grace from Finland, they used to be a romantic doom/death metal act but with years they became more gothic metal oriented, with female vocals, a really strong band that sadly disbanded.
You know, a band to be called gothic metal must have references from the gothic rock/dark wave scene as I said above, which means, Christian Death (with Rozz Williams on the vocals of course, hehehe! Or Valor of “Atrocities”, it was an awesome album, i have to admit it! And why not “Sex & Drugs & Jesus Christ”, their last really strong album with Valor!), The Mission, The Sisters Of Mercy, The Fields Of The Nephilim, Bauhaus, early The Cult, Siouxsie And The Banshees, Clan Of Xymox, Virgin Prunes, early Dead Can Dance etc must be present, with each band sticking to its own references. And what the history has shown to me is that whenever gothic rock acts started turning heavier and more metal-oriented they made far better work from gothic metal acts, because gothic rockers really know what to do, they have the feeling in their blood, it’s flowing, they know how to express it correctly and make it sound heavier if they want to enter a heavier sound stage. And of course I will mention some gothic rock/metal acts and first and above all one of the best gothic acts of the 90s that most of you don’t know, DREADFUL SHADOWS, listen to them to feel the decadence, the sorrow, the pain, the gothic aesthetic, the gothic feeling from a band that released four great albums and with every album it tended to sound steps further, reaching “The Cycle” where more modern references made their appearance. After Dreadful Shadows sadly disbanded Sven Friedrich and Norman Selbig of Dreadful Shadows formed Zeraphine, another wonderful gothic rock/metal act with a more modern approach of course. Another fabulous gothic rock/metal act have to be Scream Silence, at times tending to sound like Dreadful Shadows, but they tended to perfect their own sound, their first two album are the most metallic ones and the other three are heavy still, but more gothic rock definitely; at times they tend to have a doomy feeling as well. Secret Discovery is a good band as well, moving in pure gothic rock in their early years and from a moment and on they started sounding a lot more metallic. Also, Love Like blood is a gothic rock band ,one of the best if you ask me, they have released some really strong opuses during the first half of the 90s, in the second half of the 90s from a moment and on they started sounding heavy and “Snakekiller” is a good gothic metal/rock album. Take Garden of Delight now, one of the best gothic rock acts of the 90s, they released in 7 years 7 albums with 7 songs each one of them, they disbanded afterwards, after the first circle had ended. They came back in the 00s, stronger, heavier, more powerful, but above all gothic rock. After 4 albums they formed Lutherion and they definitely are gothic metal/rock now, sounding really heavy, gothic rock-oriented and with an electro touch as well! Most and above all I shouldn’t forget to mention the metal approach of Carl McCoy, first with The Nefilim in the second half of the 90s and recently with the dynamic come back of the Fields Of The Nephilim. “Zoon” of the Nefilim was a brilliant piece of thrash/death metal blended with strong doses of gothic rock in the renowned McCoy n’ Fields vein and “Mourning Sun” of The Fields Of The Nephilim is an album of pure gothic rock/metal, a really strong release to show to the gothic metal scene who can rule the scene in no time. And let’s mention NFD, a The Nefilim oriented project, heavy enough and always gothic rock and another project from members of The Nefilim, Saints Of Eden, gothic rock with heavy doses of metal and electronic/industrial elements, sounding really heavy and definitely really strong!
Now concerning some gothic metal acts I should mention Evereve of their first era with Tom Schedotschenko, heart-rending, twisted, mourning gothic metal from the pits of Hell, utterly desolate and melancholic, with the ideal references! After the suicide of the singer a new singer came on board and they released an easier album, gothic metal still, afterwards they started moving in more electronic soundscapes. Darkseed as well, they definitely had gothic-oriented references in albums like “Diving Into Darkness” and “Give Me Light” etc, a good band definitely. Paradise Lost OF COURSE and no matter how much doomsters hit their asses on the wall and point out that “Gothic” is doom/death metal I will always be there to be a pain in the ass and their closed mind to point out that it is one of the first pure gothic metal releases, not because of the name, “Gothic”, but because of the music. Listen carefully, the gothic rock references on the guitars are too obvious, where Sisters Of Mercy stepped Paradise Lost found water. The orchestrations have a Celtic Frost sense from the “Into The Pandemonium” era and a dark wave aesthetic as well along with the fragile female vocals that seem to have come out of the 80s dark wave scene. Sure, it has a doom sense, but think about it more. Paradise Lost continued as a gothic metal act after “Shades Of God” (which was doom metal at all costs) releasing many fabulous albums like “Draconian times”, “Icon”, “One Second”, “Paradise Lost” etc, one of the best acts of the gothic metal scene. I shouldn’t skip Lacrimosa, one of the most important acts of this very scene; i have heard/read that they are progressive gothic metal, this statement always sounded funny to me from people that really have absolutely nothing to do with the scene. Tilo Wolf is a pure genius, from the gothic-death rock/dark wave oriented first releases of Lacrimosa to the historic moment when Anne Nurmi entered the band and Lacrimosa started becoming metal, gothic metal of course! Because the references remained, the doses of classical music became too obvious and one of the characteristic parts of the sound of the band. Generally they kept the Lacrimosa feeling alive, they just became one of the most quality, recognisable and best acts of the scene. Lacrimas Profundere, from a romantic doom/death metal act they started slowly and steadily incorporating in their sound gothic references reaching nowadays where they are a goth n’ roll act, slightly metal, more of a rock band, gothic rock with a poser attitude. And since I mentioned the poser attitude of Lacrimas Profundere I shouldn’t skip at all to mention The 69 Eyes, a non-metal band, they are goth n’ roll as well, at some times offering more more romantic gothic rock like on “Paris Kills”, at others more hard rock/gothic rock having several references from the 80s/early 90s. Where the Sisters Of Mercy left “Vision Thing” and The Cult left their releases Jyrki, Jussi and their companions stole them and found out many useful things for the now-sound of The 69 Eyes and Jyrki where Ian Astbury and the singer of LA Guns stood proud stole a bit of their pride to form his stage presence. So no, The 69 Eyes are not metal, poser gothic rock or goth n’ roll yes, definitely. A! Beyond Dawn’s “Pity Love” shouldn’t be missing from here as well, an album having the decadence of doom, references from the doom metal scene and of course intense The Sisters Of Mercy passages, both in structure and guitar parts, but always tending to present them through their very own and unique avant-garde prism. I shouldn’t forget to mention, just for the history, that Beyond Dawn during that period were supporting the Sisters Of Mercy at some of their shows, not a coincidence, is it? I shouldn’t skip Tiamat, they had a good course changing their sound from album to album, progressing positively, and as you all noticed they had their gothic rock-driven moments as well. Their latest release to date “Prey” was a metallic gothic rock worship with Edlund’s haunting vocals entrancing the atmosphere, “Skeleton Skeletron” had also a gothic rock air, quite modern in sound, good enough but nothing awesome and “A Deeper Kind Of Slumber” which was a mixture of psychedelic rock with gothic rock and stuff, good work! And some of you that may know, Johan Edlund has a gothic rock oriented band, Lucyfire, good stuff. Also, The Babylon Whores, not many know them, but they are awesome, a metal-driven Christian Death worship band, they know what they are doing, really good act! Another bright example of a band that injected intense 80s gothic/dark elements have to be Portugal’s finest and most known act, Moonspell, with bands like “The Antidote”, “Sin/Pexado” (a very underrated album), “Darkness And Hope” and “Irreligious”, they have to be one of those bands that interpret gothic metal in a really good and personal manner! Also, a new band around that had quite an impressive course so far with their two releases are definitely The Vision Bleak, travelling through the corridors of nightmares, drama, horror and gothic decadence they offer a new and fresh air to the scene! Also, Yearning from Finland are doing a good job with their esoteric and beautifully adorned by sadness and esoteric emotions gothic/doom metal. Last but not least Kreator’s “Endorama” is a thousand times more gothic metal than all those so-called gothic metal bands that are being referred as gothic metal by the silly music press and the audience that knows nothing about what is gothic, doesn’t “Endorama” sound so gothic metal to you? Change scene! It’s so simple!
The problem with the gothic metal scene doesn’t end here, there are two more problems with the scene except for the female-fronted bands that are mostly being referred by both press and audience as gothic metal and of course i’m referring to part of the Visual Kei scene and the Suomi Metal scene with bands tending to sound romantic, melancholic or suicidal, moving in metal/rock soundscapes with common road on their course being the melancholy factor. Concerning the Visual Kei scene with bands like Moi Dix Mois, Malice Mizer and stuff, they have an intense gothic aesthetic in their appearance, but this is the most gothic part of their existence, their music apart from some keyboard-driven really dark passages has nothing to do with the gothic rock/dark wave scene and the Bauhaus references in those bands that i have read somewhere is definitely non-existent and i know Bauhaus really well to not recognise them in a band. Well, part of the Visual Kei that is being referred as gothic metal could be the Japanese option of gothic metal, somethng different, something “foreign” to the European scene/audience, so I won’t be absolute in this case. I have to admit, anytime with the hand on my heart, that those Visual Kei bands are more gothic than all the other female-fronted or Suomi “we’re supposed to be gothic” metal bands will ever be, both in reality and dreams. And let’s move to the Suomi metal scene, believe me, I used to be a huge fan of this very specifc scene supporting bands like HIM, Entwine, For My Pain, Poisonblack, Charon, Sentenced, Lullacry, To Die For etc, I still support Entwine, HIM and To Die For because all those three are bands that have a lot to offer in my opinion, but really, where did you people find all these gothic elements in their compositions? You can always inform me because I’m craving to know more about gothic music and I would love to find out where all these elements hide and I can’t find them. I had read somewhere that Sentenced were gothic metal and on their latest releases they became gothic rock, HA HA! I mean, how funny is that? Only a metalhead that knows nothing about the gothic scene would ever say that, and a metalhead was indeed the person who said that. Ignorance is bad, definitely bad, and in this case ignorance has caused a lot of harm, something that disgusts me seeing it going on more and more day by day.
Well, I got bored writing and I think you’ll get bored reading too, so I will stop for now, but I will have to warn all of you i-know-it-all metalheads (to avoid misunderstandings, I’m not referring to every single metalhead, but to a specific part of it) that will give my article a shot, “if the truth hurts, prepare for pain”. Kisses!

I get asked all the time how may Leather Leone top 100 albums does she have, and i just always say “How many albums has she released” !!!! …. KICK ASS METAL staff 

 

Friday the 13th March 13th, 2018. My binge for that day which i hit the record store 3 times a week, since Mid October 1982….on Friday the 13th – March 13th 2018, my binge was the Leather “II” CD on DiveBomb Records, I will be adding all world-wide pressings through the upcoming weeks to my serious metallic record collection. the new Graveshadow “Ambitions Prices”. Riot :”Fire Down Under” a top 100 traditional heavy metal album which was unleashed on Planet Metal originally of Feburay 9th 1981, this time it was ROCK CANDY Records who had the genius to but this out on CD again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Metallica “Garage Days Re-Visited” since the first pressing was only around for 2 years when initially released. I had to cut this binge short like this, this week…whoa…tax day Final in United States of America is April 17th 2018…so arrrgghhhhhh man what a cool kick ass day as a insane metal fanatic metal maniac on this day.  I wanted to do the Leather “II” album review 1st out of this batch…..because quite simply i listen to Chastain a lot. As well as everything Leather Leone does, and let’s not forget i am also a huge Kate French and Vainglory fan….soooo!!!!!

 

 

 

Growing up during the 1980’s metal movement as a teenager then back in 1980, on of my favorite label’s back then was Mike Varney’s Sharpnel Records, starting with the 1st full length Release, all the way through the brilliant era from 1983-1986 being highlights, but after this point in 1986, there is still tons of stellar releases all the way through out that labels discography. Mike Varney had the ear for finding the best of the best in heavy metal guitarist, i read a few interviews of his in Guitar Player Magazine, he is a guitar player, with a impressive collection. Stateside we had Combat/ Megaforce/ Metal Blade/ Shrapnel as the albums always in stock of the Major Metal ONLY record shoppes in America, in Las Vegas we had two of the Molten Metal Records and The Record Gallery which only carried HEAVY METAL ONLY, in reaction to the NWOBHM movement…..!!!! The Record Vault was THE Best Metal Only Record Store in San Francisco, back in the 1980’s….!!

 

So ha ha….everyone is thinking whoa….how come these is no Leather “II” CD album before Friday the 13th, March 13th 2018….well everyone relax, i always review from listening to actual albums that I buy with my own money, i never review, from non album of CDalbum or cassette sources!!

 

Anyhow this publication is heavy on the neo-classical/ classical side of heavy metal. Think Blues, Jazz, Classical.KICK ASS METAL is way on the Classical side of this spectrum because of my affinity for the Shrapnel Records label and LIKE-MINDED artist. Testament “The Legacy” — Megadeth “Rust in Peace” — Sindrome “The Resurrection….” — The Commander in Chief   — The Great Kat–  Randy Rhodes -era Ozzy Osbourne — Edge of Paradise with Dave Bates…..tons of others. Chastain is in this big league, for sure!!!! While the band has a perfect discography my favorite is Chastain “We Bleed Metal”, this answer is different in 2018. 2008, 1998, 1988…..

The line up on the all time classic is

The below blurb if from DiveBomb Records Website

DIVE163
CD

OVERVIEW:
Oft-championed alongside Wendy O. Williams, Betsy Bitch, and Doro Pesch as a leading torchbearer for high-power heavy metal frontwomen, LEATHER LEONE is perhaps best known for her outstanding work alongside legendary guitar shredder David T. Chastain—having performed on no less than four of CHASTAIN’s full-length albums prior to releasing her solo debut, Shock Waves, in 1989. However, after another stellar outing with CHASTAIN the following year with For Those Who Dare, a lengthy hiatus occurred, and it would be 20 years before LEATHER’s inimitable vocal force would resurface.

2011 found LEONE once more joining forces with early-’80s Rude Girl bandmate Sandy Sledge for the Sledge Leather project, resulting in the 2012 full-length Imagine Me Alive. Subsequent albums with CHASTAIN followed in Surrender to No One (2013) and We Bleed Metal ‎(2015); and touring under her own name throughout South America and Europe over the past two years, LEATHER and her current lineup of Vinnie Tex and Daemon Ross (guitars), Thiago Velasquez (bass), and Braulio Drummond (drums) have harnessed their newfound fire into a brand new album slated for the spring of 2018. Produced by guitarist Tex alongside Rodrigo Scelza at studios in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Białystok, Poland, the scorching 11-song outing—titled simply II—was mixed and mastered by the Wiesławski Brothers (VADER, BEHEMOTH, etc.).

Having previously reissued LEONE’s phenomenal solo debut—not to mention three of her CHASTAIN-backed classics—Divebomb Records is now excited to support LEATHER’s latest endeavor to fly the flag of courageous metal with II. In the band’s own words: “Straight ahead pure heavy metal! No hippies, no posers!”

The Blurb Below on my Divebomb Records Verision Says Leather Leone Has Returned For fans of Chastain — Doro — Dio — Warlock — Halford

This album easilly fits in between heavy rotation and belongs in your serious heavy metal collection along side Chastain “We Bleed Metal”, Doro “Raise Your Fist” Dio “Holy Diver” Warlock’ Triumph and Agony” and Halford “Resurrection, as well as Judas Preist “Pain Killer” and “Fire Power” ….. There are 4,800 top 100 heavy metal albums since the genre since its inception o Friday the 13th – Febuary 13th, 1970…Leather “II” is on our best of the best of all-time list, it has to do with Heavy Metal’s GOLD STANDARD, the albums which ALL BANDS are judged against. Gold Standard is a noun and it means the best, most reliable, or most prestigious thing of its type…in this case we are talking about World-Class Heavy Metal with authenticity, Authencity for means which is real, and genuine, Authenticity is something that never be taught those who have it WILL ALWAYS have there star power SHINE THE BRIGHTEST…!! I know the difference between my subjective favorites and what should be taken seriously objectively. And Leather Leone IS THE REAL DEAL !!!!!!

FOR FANS OF:
CHASTAIN, WARLOCK/DORO, BITCH/BETSY and DIO

CHASTAIN-We Bleed Metal (Leviathan Records)
The previous CHASTAIN album sounded a lot different than what I was used to of this band. I was convinced that it all could have sounded so much better and more powerful. My prayers must have been heard somewhere down the line, because the first notes of the title track of “We Bleed Metal” are truly AWESOME!! The album runs for forty-five bloody minutes and contains nine tracks. “We Bleed Metal” opens with the siren voice of Leather Leone. The drums are pounding and on top of that there’s the maestro himself David T. Chastain, who shreds like never before. Both horns up for CHASTAIN! This album is really vicious, it’s mean and it sounds all freaking right. “All Hail The King” could easily be renamed into “All Hail CHASTAIN”. Man, what a dynamic sound! The fast pounding drums destroy your eardrums and Leather sings better than ever. Once again, there’s the incredible guitar solo of David, who really nails it the ground. The PRIEST-like sound is being drilled into your stomach and gives it a good shake. It will make your head go up and down from excitement. A nice moody intro will remind you of some classical PRIEST tunes from long ago, while the power comes later on. “Against All The Gods” has got a great beat, on which the song is being build. The song itself has got that crazy rhythm, you just can’t deny. The closing is a real surprise, but it fits perfectly to this song. “Search Time For You” opens with a great guitar part. The slower sludgy sound gives it a true metal feeling. The guitar fills are mind-blowing and it gives the album a lot of variation. I hear some MANOWAR influences along the way, too. But it always stays true to the heavy sound and you just can’t stop throwing your fists in the air. “Don’t Trust Tomorrow” is another mighty fast rocker with a leading role for the sharp voice of Leather, who will slit your throat. And if she doesn’t do the trick, David’s fast solo part will. “I’m A Warrior” is on next. Need I say more? They are the true warriors of heavy metal to the max. While “Evolution Of Terror” just demands to put your fist down. The fast guitar sound of David is back and it will put a smile on the face of every devoted metal head, I guess. It’s also good to hear the bass sound of Mike Skimmerhorn, which is as solid as a rock. “The Last Ones Alive” must be a song about survivors and I’m glad that these four people survived. The vocals of Leather reminded me more of UDO DIRKSCHNEIDER here. The groovy and dirty sound of CD closer “Secrets” puts a big smile on my face. They did it again, they’re back, I’m happy and they can be proud of themselves. This is the comeback album, I’ve been hoping for in the first place. Well, better late than never though. I give it another spin, but this time louder than ever. CHASTAIN consists of David T. Chastain on guitars, Leather Leone on vocals, Mike Skimmerhorn on bass and Stian Kristoffersen on drums. I bleed metal, you bleed metal, we all bleed metal. A well-deserved full score for this masterpiece. Website: http://www.chastainmetal.com. [10 point – FULL SCORE] ——- FUCKING ESSENTIAL —-

Rock Candy just released ‘Remastered & Reloaded‘ Rock Candy Records version of Americans RIOT third album “Fire Down Under“, including 6 meaty bonus tracks.
The album is considered a big influence by many American bands to become famous during the ’80s, a blend of classic British metal / hard rock yet with a characteristic US touch.
The saying goes that you can’t keep a good band down. For New York based five piece Riot that maxim was not only true but hugely understated. Against all odds Riot fought for the right to be heard by overcoming huge obstacles and battling a ferociously indifferent industry. 
That they came through the wars intact with a musical legacy and integrity to match is arguably a minor miracle and one not lost on their legions of loyal fans. 
Riot’s early struggles have been fully documented. Their two previous albums (especially the previous killer ‘Narita’), made for a riveting preamble for the appearance of this “Fire Down Under”. Despite notching up serious momentum, including healthy album sales, the band’s fortunes were in the dumps. 
Their label (Capitol) had elected to abandon them by refusing to release the album. In an enterprising move the bands fan following instigated a campaign to get the record issued… which, in an early sign of people power, was eventually accomplished but on a new label, Elektra Records. 
“Fire Down Under” turned out to be the band creative zenith unleashing a brace of tracks that placed Riot in the upper echelons hard rock nirvana. Produced, once again, by their production/management team in New York City, the record explodes with deadly intent. 
Tracks such as ‘Outlaw’, ‘Swords And Tequila’, ‘Run For Your Life’ and the title track take no prisoners allowing vocalist Guy Speranza and guitarist Mark Reale to shine like diamonds.
“Fire Down Under” was fully embraced by British metalheads. But rather than sounding much like Judas Priest or Black Sabbath, the name of the game here is bluesy hard rock from bands like Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy and Rainbow (bands from the UK, true, but with roots lying squarely in American blues rock).
Unlike Riot’s first two albums, for this third LP the band started playing a whole lot louder and making full use of the twin-guitar attack that Thin Lizzy made famous. 
I do not exaggerate when I put vocalist Guy Speranza at his best here, on the same level as true greats like Halford or Dio; the man has the full frontman package, evincing incredible skill and talent while simultaneously dripping with charisma. Speranza reminds me of Glenn Hughes in a lot of ways, with a similar sort of high clear tenor, but with a soulful edge that comes and goes at will. 
And underrated guitarist Mark Reale (RIP) really shines here, finding room to drop some scorching solos and a kick ass rhythm tamdem alongside second axeman Rick Ventura.
Riot surprises here as well with tracks such as ‘Altar of the King’. This is Riot’s take on Rainbow’s epic style, approaching the transcendence of something like ‘Stargazer’ in only about half the time but with a much more positive color. Speranza sings his heart out, with lyrics encapsulating the song’s theme of striving toward greatness and accomplishment through ambiguous epic pronouncements that would make Dio proud. Easily one of my favorite hard rock / melodic metal tracks of all time. 
This Rock Candy features 6 great bonus tracks, recorded for the original Capitol Records version of “Fire Down Under” which the band seems were unhappy with. Well, I can’t hear why, because numbers like ‘You’re All I Needed Tonight’ (think FastWay) or ‘Struck By Lightning’ simply rocks.
We find also an officially previously unreleased version of ‘Outlaw (Remix / Edited)’, and a hot live take of Riot’s classic ‘Rock City (Live)’.
“Fire Down Under” boasts one of those timeless blends of classic hard rock / melodic metal which will sound just as good in the year 2018 as 1981: pure vibrant energy, direct guitar tone, groove bass lines, shuffling drums, and vocals doused in just enough reverb to capitalize on Speranza’s power. 
It’s a great rocking disc, a cult classic that any collector will proudly claim.
The album was re-issued on CD in 1997 by the German-based High Vaultage label with some of these bonus tracks, but utilizing a new, controversial remix by former Riot producer Steve Loeb.This Rock Candy reissue features the original release mix / Elektra Records. And the remastering job is great with the necessary air for these rocking tunes to breath.

TOP 100 ALBUMS OF 2018

FRONT-RUNNER BEST COVERS VERSION ALBUM OF THE YEAR

 

Since February 24th, 1994 this has always been a GOTHIC METAL-age/ DEATH METAL-age/ AVANT-GARDE METAL-age publication, but my main influence in my college years was the GODLY ill-literautre Magazine which ran from 1988 to 2003, and pretty much the print media age was over for the more commerical metal publications, there are specialized press in each metal sub-genre that thrive even to this day.  ill-literature was the 1st metal publication, to cover any artist as long as they were original, kick ass, and authentic. Authenticity is the aspect in music in which bands become transcended, and the thing were bands make SUPREME IMMORTAL ART OF THE HIGHEST ORDER, instead of entertainment.

 

For those not up on current hard rock and heavy metal history, the Haxans won the 2018 Gothic Album of Year Winner, that is relevant here because our first speciality as a specialized press in, will have to say it again, Since February 24th, 1994 KICK ASS METAL has always been a GOTHIC METAL-age/ DEATH METAL-age/ AVANT-GARDE METAL-age publication, but my main influence in my college years was the GODLY ill-literature Magazine which ran from 1988 to 2003, which specialized in Gothic Metal, Death Metal, Avant-Garde Metal, but went all in on Alternative Metal, like no other.

As a heavy metal fan since 1978, i became a fan of the covers album via Metallica with Creeping Death Garage Days EP in November of 1984, and the Garage Days Revisited in the Summer of 1987. So i am very open-minded about these kind of releases.

 

The packing of the New Years Day “Diary of A Creep” is bare-bones, exactly like a promo sleeve album, that i used to get back when the vinyl era changed over to the CD age in 1988 for some and in 1990 for most. I bought 2 copies of this, for now initially, will get more later, because it was sold a Maxi-Single to a Extended Play Price.  The music society pages have this release unleashed on Planet Metal back a couple of months ago, maybe for digital release, since this was one of the most anticipated releases in hard rock/ heavy metal of 2018, this was going to be a 1st day purchase, so the official CD release date is February 23rd, 2018, for the actual CD.

 

I love this album so much i will have to get in a better pressing, maybe a import where this is released with CD booklet and a CD layout. I would love to see liner notes about this release. So will have to keep working on this and will let you know what happens with this release. This recording is so good in the future I hope it is added as a second disc, when “Malevolence” ever gets a re-press, re-edition. That is how good this extended play release is !!!!!!!!!!

 

 

The track-listing is

Disgust Me

Bizarre Love Triangle

Fucking Hostile

Crawling

Only Happy When it Rains featuring World-Class Vocalist Lzzy Hale

Don’t Speak

 

While the whole EP is perfect in every way, there is a sweet spot on this the four songs of “Fucking Hostile”, “Crawling” “Only Happy When it Rains” with Lzzy Hale as a guest vocalist !!!!!!!!!!! and “Don’t Speak”

 

Fucking Hostile is the all-time classic from Groove Metal pioneers and  Nü-METAL GODFATHERS, Pantera. As a  Nü-METAL fanatic insane metal maniac, Pantera really pulled a way from the generic thrash scrap metal pack, by making METAL even heavier, and more power soaked than even 99.9 of most DEATH METAL, of it day and of all-time. But what I love about this version, with the added melody, on the vocal lines, this version will have you grabbing for your copies of Pantera “POWER METAL” in no time!!!

You have to get Pantera “POWER METAL” on cassette, or vinyl since Metal Magic Records only pressed it on CD in a limited run of 2,000 COPIES, and myself I have 3 of them, and 2 copies of a December 1988 simulcast recording where half of the song listing is from Power Metal and half of the song listing is from the then upcoming Cowboys From Hell!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Crawling is up next and of course every Alternative Rock and Alternative Metal fan knows it is the Linkin Park all-time classic from one of the most original bands of all-time. I really loved all the artistry of Linkin Park, and this was a real treat for all the Linkin Park/New Years Day true fans. And really felt this song did the original justice, while making it there own.

 

Only Happy When It Rains is a cover version from the legendary Garbage featuring World-Class Vocalist Shirley Manson, and this version features a guest vocal spot from one of the grestest hard rocker/ heavy metal vocalist of all-time in Lzzy Hale, and while the original is awesome and powerful, this version also is bad ass and kick ass in its own right !!!!!

 

Don’t Speak is from the highly influential, Gwen Stefani who is a true inspiration on a few artist featured in these pages, No Dobut is a band always in heavy metal play list rotation alongside artist such as Berlin with Terri Nunn, as well as artist such as the usual Metal Blade, Combat, Megaforce, Shrapnel Records top-tier artist. Think the October 31st 1982 to October 31st 1986-era!!!!

 

Metallica later in the year will be unleashing the 1987 “The $5.98 EP” on Blackend Records, so between heavy rotations of that releases, will be heavy rotation of New Years Day “Diary of A Creep” and the FUCKING ESSENTIAL volumes 1-3 of  Halestorm ReAniMate

 

 

 

 

Below is a article from Alternative Press, and is here for posterity !!!!

New Years Day are kicking off the new year with a new EP, Diary Of A Creep, chock-full of awesome rock covers. It features a fresh original track, “Disgust Me,” alongside a collection of cover tunes from Linkin ParkGarbageNo DoubtPantera and New Order.

We caught up with front-woman Ash Costello to talk about each track on Diary Of A Creep and how each band—and song—helped shape her into the artist she is today.


It was incredibly difficult to narrow this down to five songs we wanted to cover the most. It was very important to me to not only pay tribute to the artists who shaped who I am today, but to share it with all of you.

It’s easy to dismiss where an artist has come from if you have no clue who they worshipped when they were just kids in school, dreaming of being a real musician someday. These are just a few of the songs that helped and shaped me along the way. I am grateful to you for listening, and I hope you enjoy the covers as much as I do.

Pantera, “Fucking Hostile”
When I was in high school, there were different groups of kids. The goth kids. The ska kids. The punk kids. The metal kids. I had ins with all of them. The metal gang was all about the music. Every lunchtime, it was only about listening to each other’s favorite metal songs together at our table in the school quad. The bands we played ranged from Iron Maiden and Megadeth to Slayer and Cradle Of Filth. But one band really did it for me. Fucking Pantera. The guitar riffs. The guitar tone. The songs’ subject matter. The way they looked. Something about it just felt like mine. And above all the other songs, after all this time, “Fucking Hostile” still makes every single one of my “before I hit the stage” playlists. It has shaped a lot of my musical songwriting preferences, and it’s what I base a lot of New Years Day’s music on.

RIP Dimebag.

Linkin Park, “Crawling”
It’s the perfect song. There, I said it. In nine out of 10 songwriting sessions, I use this song as an example. The lyrics say so much. They describe every way I feel by saying very, very little. It taught me that I can speak novels about what’s going on inside my head, and my heart, without saying anything at all.

It was hard to narrow down the five songs I wanted to cover because through the years, the ebb and flow of my musical taste changed and twisted so much. But I wanted to do this for Chester. I am still in shock over what he may have been going through internally. I relate to it more than I’d like to say, and I really felt strongly about singing the words he sang.

Garbage, “Only Happy When It Rains”
To be honest, I was not a fan of many female singers growing up. I never liked the pop stars. I appreciated their talent and their work. But the female had to have some very specific requirements for me to fangirl over them, I realized once I became a frontwoman myself. I liked women who weren’t afraid. They pushed the limits. They made you think. They were feminine, but ass-kicking. They were dark, but not too dark. Shirley Manson is perfect. The music represented me. Queer, No. 1 crush, just flawless, but “Only Happy When It Rains” was my motherfucking anthem. I wouldn’t be the artist I am today had I not studied Garbage albums in middle school.

No Doubt, “Don’t Speak”
No Doubt are it for me. No Doubt were my first love. The first time I was a fan of anything or anybody. Gwen was my ultimate hero. I dressed like her in middle school. I wore the creepers with the Dickies. I had the bangs, the red lipstick and the crop tops. I studied her mannerisms and stage moves. The way she was vulnerable onstage, but let you know she was the queen bitch in charge. I would pretend to be the rock star in a band while lip-syncing to all of Tragic Kingdom. She grew up around the corner from me. Her mom and my mom would run into each other at the supermarket, and we attended the same junior high and high school. Her sweetness and her ability to take charge. How she was just a normal and simple girl yet extraordinary. I had a No Doubt cover band in high school, and we played parties and coffee shops. I was the ultimate fangirl. I saw No Doubt play in 1995, and I knew I wanted to be just like Gwen. “Just A Girl” was my first pick, but it seemed too obvious. “Don’t Speak” can still make me cry, so it was a no-brainer.

New Order, “Bizarre Love Triangle”
My mom was a single, working mother, so my grandma, a practicing Wiccan, and her two sons, who were total Robert Smith-looking ’80s goths, would babysit me. They would dress me in black, put black lipstick on me and we’d have dance parties in the living room to their favorite new wave songs. This one was always my absolute favorite. You can’t not dance to it. And since NYD have already covered a Depeche Mode song, New Order seems like the next obvious move.

Below is from a February 21st, 2018 KICK ASS METAL TOUR NEWS FEATURE

Atlantic recording group HALESTORM have announced details of a milestone North American tour showcasing all female-fronted hard rock outfits. The dates — co-headlined by Roadrunner recording group IN THIS MOMENT — begins April 30 in Houston, Texas and then travels through mid-May. Support throughout the trek comes from special guests NEW YEARS DAYand STITCHED UP HEART.

The tour will include stops at a number of upcoming festivals and state fairs, including Jacksonville, Florida’s Welcome To Rockville (April 27); Fort Lauderdale, Florida’s Fort Rock(April 28); and Charlotte, North Carolina’s Carolina Rebellion (May 5).

“We’ve been wanting to put together a tour like this for a long time,” says HALESTORM‘s Lzzy Hale. “We are a few of the hardest-working women in rock, so the fact that we are all on the same stage every night is something not to be missed! We support and love each other, and we are representing our genre. This lineup is a beautiful display of what it means to be a strong female example for rock fans everywhere.”

IN THIS MOMENT‘s frontwoman Maria Brink echoed the sentiment, saying: “I am very excited about being a part of such an empowering, divine, female-fronted tour. It is very rare in rock music to have a movement like this and the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Lzzy and I are already discussing the possibility of more tours like this in the future. Let the Amazons rise!”

NEW YEARS DAY frontwoman Ash Costello adds: “I am beyond thrilled to be sharing the stage with such strong women. Having toured with both HALESTORM and IN THIS MOMENTalready, they are such powerful forces, it’s just incredible to be a part of every night. I’m very excited for an all female fronted tour, because in all my years of touring, this is the very first time I’ll have been a part of one. I can’t wait to walk on stage and feel the support of a crowd that is there to witness women of rock slay for an entire evening. What an evening it will be! You won’t want to miss this tour, I can promise you that.”

“This is our dream lineup,” says STITCHED UP HEART frontwoman Mixi. “Every single band on this bill is a huge inspiration to us and unbelievably talented. We are beyond excited for this run!”

Ah. Well… I attended Julliard… I’m a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I’ve seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT… NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU’RE TALKING TO A DEAD GIRL… NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK?!?

This is the lifestyle I love.

New Years Day:

Imagine if Dexter Morgan with side kick Eric Northman, hosted a late late late night talk show in a haunted mansion deep within the enchanted cemetery, then NEW YEARS DAY would most assuredly be their house band with warm blood-spattered bottles of True Blood offered in the “red room” for the visiting “undead”.

If Gerard Way and Haley Williams had a demon baby girl, who sang youthful hook-laden dark-rock with tongue-in-cheek macabre lyrics, dark molten ghoulishness and topped mischievousness.

It is a blurrrrrr…..3rd or 4th time seeing the UnHollyWood, Killafronia INDUSTRIAL METAL GODS AND LEGENDS….Saw them last year in 2017, and a few times in circa 2015, will have to flip through the chapters of KICK ASS METAL, to see, but as one of the premier and greatest live band of this era, and of all-time in all things KICK ASS METAL and INDUSTRIAL METAL…..!!!

No matter how many times i say it, this is a GOTHIC-age/ Avant-Garde Metal-age/ Death Metal-age publicaton, since this publication on March 1st 2013 and 1993 before that when i worked else where. Davey Suicide has been featured here a few times in KICK ASS METAL, and  if your astute and quick on your feet GOTHIC and INDUSTRIAL METAL GO Hand-IN-Hand, you will realized that no matter what gothic or industrial metal publication you read. 2nd time seeing this line-up back to back, and if you have the self-awareness. KICK ASS METAL is very much similar to Vampire Freaks WebZine, except we avoid the emotional crossover acts and artist, because that is there spectrum of Alternative Press, which I never read, because i have my own established influences.

No set list, but all of the classics were played KIDS OF AMERICA * RISE ABOVE * NO ANGEL * TOO MANY FREAKS * GENERATION FUCK STAR….of course more songs were played but will not mention them because without a set list….so .

Anyhow as a true real Marilyn Manson and The Kovenant fan, since day 1 for each artist. I love Davey Suicide more than Marylin Manson, and between the Kovenant and Davey Suicide, it is pretty close….anyhow when talking about the top 10 INDUSTRIAL METAL artist of all-time. I easily rate Davey Suicide in the top 10 of all-time, of course were THE BIGGEST Hanzel Und Gretyl fans of all-time, and quite honestly lose alot of readers because of that….well bye, bye and good riddance, same goes for Davey Suicide, if you think they don’t belong in these pages, not only are you sadly mistaken, and will support this band for the rest of my tenure, and my successor is a huge fan also.

Davey Suicide is more important to me more than Marilyn Manson. Even though like i said i am a Marilyn Manson true fan, since day 1…..just every legendary band has a successor, and Davey Suicide is a successor, because his artistic vision is all Davey Suicide own, one-of-a-kind style. I really do not like making top 100 rankings, but these have to happen because this readership, who know me personally, since my involvement in heavy metal since 1983 where i got the real evocation for this genre which i started as a true fan in 1978.

This was one of the best concerts i have been to in my life, and every-time I have seen them i have been in the front row, which still blows my mind even to this day….Each member has a amazing stage presence, and charisma, and authenticity, that is what separates the legends from the IMMORTALS OF METAL, while Davey Suicide are legends in the Industrialized Metal Genre, they are also IMMORTALS OF METAL, we cover the 7 main genres in heavy metal and the 7 mirror images of these styles in the rock and avant-garde styles, so 21 genres and 117,000 bands in each style and we try to bring you the top 700 artist of each style of each decade, century and all-time.

Davey Suicide is the real deal, and the one of the greatest show in the industrial metal realm. Bands are never here just for this or that, each band is a chapter of a heavy metal bible, of course the term metal has different definitions from publication to publication, for KICK ASS METAL we do not care if your ROCK/AVANT-GARDE/METAL/ CLASSICAL just you have to RULE and KICK ASS….!!!!! I have the Davey Suicide back catalog, i would never tell you to spend your tax refund or life savings on a band, unless i did myself, and I hit the merchandise tables hard the last two times they were in town….as far as a band, they are the coolest people on earth, which adds to the killer vibes of there high energy live shows. A concert should have resonance, with your inner evocation of what you love in heavy metal. And Davey Suicide is a band that takes me to another part of my psyche, the part alot of bands can not touch or tap into, but Davey Suicide is one of the greastest live bands of there genre and of all-time.  Of course my mind was blown, jaw dropped on the floor as i was floored while having chills run up and down my spine, while i decompress, let loose of the negative and recharge the positive. I can only say that about the top-tier upper-echelon bands of each genre, and of all-time. And Davey Suicide is one of the bands. Like I said Davey Suicide is stamped and left a indelible mark on history and deeply scared these pages all the way to page 1 of underground year zero day 1…..Ranking are important here, because it determines who gets news and who gets concert reviews, I keep alot of rankings/rating close to ourselves, but I will say Davey Suicide, is one of the greatest INDUSTRIALIZED METAL artist of all-time like i said I file Davey Suicide in heavy rotation between Marilyn Manson,  Hanzel Und Gretyl, and The Kovenant, and the other logical top 25 artist in your top 25 and my top 25.

TOO MANY FREAKS AND NOT ENOUGH CIRCUSES, FREAKS DO IT BETTER DIDN’T YOU KNOW, AND DAVEY SUICIDE IS ONE THE GREATEST SHOW ON PLANET METAL. 

FUCKING ESSENTIAL CONCERT TO SAY THE LEAST, I JUST HOPE OVER MY TENURE HERE, I CAN DO THIS BAND justice and articulate how much they mean to me, and why they should be in every serious KICK ASS METAL record collection world-wide.

The name, “Suicide” is a constant reminder that unless we kill ourselves, there’s no ceiling for what we are capable of.“

Hailing from Unholywood Killafornia, Davey Suicide is cultivating the underground by fusing arena rock, gutter grit, sleaze, killer tunes and theatrics into their own “nu” brand of industrial rock. The band, which features Davey Suicide along with Drayven Davidson, Needlz, Niko Gemini, and Derek Obscura, distills rock, industrial and punk into anthems that are as corrosive as they are catchy. “Rock fans haven’t gone anywhere,“ Suicide exclaims, “they just need a reason to fall in love again.”

Formed in 2010, Suicide played a few shows in Hollywood, California before garnering the attention of a couple labels and the former manager of Linkin Park. Armed with the recordings that later became the Davey Suicide LP, by early 2012, Suicide signed a record deal with Standby Records. By the summer of 2012, Suicide started extensively touring. From 2012-2015, the band went on 16 tours, over 330 shows (with the likes of Static-X, Combichrist, Wednesday 13, Twiztid, Ill Nino, Orgy, New Years Day, William Control) and put out 3 releases including the Put Our Trust in Suicide EP (Nov 2012), the self titled Davey Suicide LP (March 2013) and the World Wide Suicide LP (September 2014).

Along the way, Suicide gained notable press with songs “Generation Fuck Star” and “Kids of America” by Kerrang Magazine as one of the Top 50 Rockstars in the World, Alternative Press’ 100 Bands You Need to Know, Revolver Magazine’s Ones to Watch, and numerous features in Big Cheese, Outburn, Substream, Scuzz TV & Blank TV.

Rumors of heavy friction between Suicide and the record label started surfacing after the intentional botched release by the label of World Wide Suicide in September 2014. In the spring of 2015, Suicide and the record label locked horns in a litigation over rights of Suicide’s albums and numerous contractual breaches. After a year and a half of litigating with little movement on the case, Suicide decided to release a tell-all video depicting the details of what the band had gone through with the label in August of 2016. The tell-all video immediately went viral and spun the music community into a media circus. It amassed over 1.3 million views, and reached over 3 million people in a matter of days. Shortly after the video went viral, an emergency hearing was called by the label and took place in Ohio. The lawsuit got settled the day of the hearing in exchange for the viral post being removed from Facebook. In addition, a settlement, freedom and music rights were granted to Suicide.

in late August of 2016, Suicide released the empowering single, “Rise Above” which got added to Kerrang TV, Scuzz TV and Kerrang Radio’s rotation. “Rise Above” symbolized freedom, a new life for the band and became the first single off their 3rd studio album entitled, “Made From Fire.”

On September 16, 2016, Davey Suicide’s catalogue was re-released on Itunes, and all digital outlets by Suicide under the name AntiSystem Records.

Made From Fire, the 3rd studio LP, was released on March 24, 2017 and charted on Billboard. The album peaked at #3 on Top Heatseakers, #6 on Top Hard Rock, #14 on Top Independent and #76 on the Top 200.
Made From Fire has guest features from Twiztid and William Control. Suicide exclaims, “all of this adversity tested us and forced us to learn how to survive. It could have ended us, but instead, we’ve created our most exciting collection of material to date.”

Critics and the public have been raving over this comeback story. “Davey Suicide’s, “Made From Fire” incorporates the anarchistic bite of vintage Marilyn Manson with the stadium feel of Bring Me The Horizon and the epic melodies courtesy of In This Moment. Blended together with barefaced sex appeal and borderline extremism and danger, Davey Suicide has erected a new kingdom of torching wrath, industrial destruction, passionate melodies, tons of charisma and a tough attitude allowing only one conclusion: If there’s one Rock band out there the world really, really needs right now, it’s Davey Suicide.“

The band finished their first few tours off this album cycle with Dope and Combichrist, Doyle (Misfits guitarist) and a headline run to the Ink in the Clink festival w/ 3 Days Grace. They are currently on their 3rd single entitled, “No Angel” and are heading out this winter to continue supporting, Made From Fire.

Crazy Town hails from Los Angeles, California and on November 9th, 1999 they unleashed upon Planet Metal  one of the greatest Rap Rock/ nü-metal albums of all-time…and if I ever had to do a Rap Rcok / Nü-metal top 100 albums of all-time this band is at the top of the upper-echelon since they are pioneers,  they just took the same influences we all have and stamped there own authority and have a signature sound of there own to be included in these pages.  Since it was one of the most exhilirating concerts with a highly charismatic front man in Shifty Shellshock, and a awesome KILLER GUITAR tone from Elias “ET” Tannous, and the rest of the band was on fire, and alot head-bangers and hard rockers of attendance made the comment Crazy Town was a bucket list for them!!!!!!!!!! FUCK YEA now you lived a full fucking life !!!! ….at least see them once live in your life-time, you know what!!!! They are fucking right on that !!!! Out of the thousands of concerts i have been to since 1982 when i started my punk rock/ metallic addiction concert experiences!!! Crazy Town went all-out 110% dedication to there fans, and those who show-up i am sure will be true believers. I completed my bucket list in 2015 seen every top favorite band subjective and objective, and since I have been a fan of there albums, seeing this line-up performing with this much energy, talent and conviction, when i look back on this, in the future, as a live band in the heavier hard rock/alternative metal / Nü-metal realm, this is the one to go see, and the one, that has the best sound, and positive vibes!!!! With a foundation date of the band going back to 1995, and being part of the 1990’s metal zeitgeist, circa November 9th, 1999…..So new fans of modern rock and older Alternative Metal maniac insane fanatics, want to go see one of THE HEAVIEST bands around…go see this, at all cost, the job of a music news service, is to find you the greatest bands of all-time, live and on vinyl, on both counts Crazy Town RULES, and are 110% KICK ASS!!!!

For those who have no idea about heavy metal history and hard rock history, good fucking luck NOT SEEING THIS band all over every mainstream metal ‘zine all-over this planet, on the radio and on MTV !!!!!

Crazy Town HIGHEST FUCKING RECOMMENDATION……………Untill a heavier band in there genre can be found !!!

 

The below is from the bands official oneline presence at

http://crazytownband.net/

 

When the new millennium arrived the music industry was in the midst of a new music revolution. The free delivery via shared files online created a new “outlaw” brand, that would prove instrumental in the way music would be not just delivered but created. One of the breakout bands to not just embrace but help shift the tectonic plates of the music industry was Crazy Town. As one of the first hybridbrands, they brought a new ball into the game. Equal parts urban and suburban, Chevrolet and Bentley, they rolled onto the music scene with a slow build that erupted when a “Butterfly” entered the room. The two founding members, Seth Binzer and Bret Mazur were introduced to each other by WILL I AM of the BLACK EYED PEAS. Binzer brought in his long-time friend DJ AM and Crazytown was born.

The band was all the buzz in the industry, the talk of LA. Crazytown-mania created a classic Hollywood record label bidding war in which Columbia Records ultimately won. It was the Columbia/Sony worldwide reach which appealed the most to Crazytown and that reach had them touring the world and eventually garnered them a number 1 record in more than 15 countries, and selling more than 6 million copies of their first album, THE GIFT OF GAME. The success of their worldwide smash hit Butterfly in 2001was inescapable and reached iconic status.

In 2003, CrazyTown released the follow up to GIFT OF GAME, titled DARKHORSE. Couched by record executives to deliver a harder sound, the band did not follow their instincts in the studio. DARKHORSE was not the follow up record the band wanted to, or should have delivered. The luke warm reception by the media, and lackluster sales of the sophomore effort strained the relationship between the label and the band. Whether or not Crazytown was a vicitim of the changing playing field or of their own success, they found themselves without a record deal soon thereafter. Mazur and Binzer decided to take a little hiatus and re-energize for what would be Crazytowns third record. Binzer went on to have great success with a solo effort and Paul Oakenfold’s Starry Eyed Surprise. Mazur went back to his roots as a Writer/Producer/remixer working with the likes of The Plain White Tees, Julien K, Hollywood Undead and many more.

Months turned to years, and it wasn’t until Bret called Seth to discuss releasing an album of unreleased Crazytown songs that the spark was re-ignited. They decided to get back into the studio and add one, or two brand new songs to the mix. In Mazur’s words “I just felt like we had all these songs that our fans would love to hear! Why let them die in my hard drive.” One or two new songs turned into a complete reformation of a new Crazytown. “We are taking it back to our roots, for the love of what we do”, stated Binzer.

If you were lucky enough to catch the sneak preview of their new track “Lemon Face” you know they mean business. A full record release is in the works for 2014. Well poised for reinvigorating their fans and banging out new ones, the band launches live with a handful of Southwest US dates, including the legendary Whiskey A Go Go in Hollywood. Then it is off to Europe in June to own their slot at uber music fests Rock In Park & Rock Am Ring in Germany, and NovaRock in Austria, before crushing it at Download in the UK. The tour is rounded out by other high profile festivals, and some headline shows.

Crazytown is back. Crazytown is wiser. Crazytown is better. Crazytown is now!

Nervosa Biography 

 

All female power thrash metal trio from São Paulo, formed by Fernanda Lira (bass and vocals), Prika Amaral (guitar and backing vocals) and Luana Dametto (drums).

Despite being part of bands from different styles previously, like death metal and crossover, all members see in the compositions of Nervosa a same passion: thrash metal. With strong influences coming from bands of this genre’s classic school, the girls of the band seek to rescue the best in heavy music.

Prika Amaral started the band in February 2010, and in July 2011 Fernanda Lira took on the bass and vocals of NERVOSA, and only then, finally with the full team, the band started working as a professional band – writing songs, recording, playing shows.

In March 2012, the band released their first music video for “Masked Betrayer,” which reached the incredible mark, for a new band, of 20,000 views in just one week, prompting them to receive an Honorable Mention from YouTube, as the 17th most watched clip of musicians of the week and 55th most viewed in the month of March of that year.

Thanks to the notoriety gained through their hard work, NERVOSA in the following months, achieved a great accomplishment: the contract with the Austrian label Napalm Records, which has in their roster names like Cavalera Conspiracy, WASP, Grave Digger, Moonspell, Huntress, among many others.

Still in 2012, the band’s first record, a demo with 3 tracks, was released in Brazil on CD independently, under the title ’2012′ in August, and abroad by Napalm Records on turquoise vinyl, and by Nuclear Blast in a clear version, both under the title ‘Time Of Death’, whose cover art was designed by artist Andrei Bouzikov, who has worked with several bands previously, such as Municipal Waste.

Nervosa ends the year 2012 with a very positive balance with more than 50 concerts made around the country, among them, sharing the stage with bands like Exodus, Raven, Grave, Samael (in the festival Roça n Roll), Exumer and Artillery , among others.

After a period of exchanging drummers, the one who assumed the position in February of 2013 was Pitchu Ferraz.

Thus, the year 2013 began with a renewed vibe, and the band continued to promote their EP throughout the country, with shows in several states, and even a tour over the North and Northeast of the country, as well as sharing the stage with other great Names of the world scene such as Korzus, Ratos de Porão and also Destruction, Exciter, Blaze Bayley, Kreator, DRI And Benediction.

In 2014, the girls finished the recording of their first full lenght, titled Victim of Yourself, which had 12 tracks and whose cover was signed again by the artist Andrei Bouzikov, and the booklet was produced by the Brazilian artist Rafael Romanelli.

The album was released in March of that same year by Napalm Records in Europe and North America, and by other record companies and distributors in South America, Japan and Russia. In addition to the traditional CD format, 4 vinyl versions were also released – in black, blue, red and clear colors, distributed by Napalm Records itself and also by Nuclear Blast.

Two clips were released throughout the album’s promotion: ‘Death!’, which achieved record-breaking views among the band’s videos (over 1 million views), and ‘Into Moshpit’, a live video compilation that demonstrates all the energy of the girls in a live show.

These two singles, added to the other tracks of the album, made ‘Victim of Yourself’ reach great response from the metal audience, as well as prominence and good ratings in major magazines in the segment around the world, such as European Metal Hammer, Rock Hard , Terrorizer and Bass Guitar, the American Revolver and Guitar World and even the Japanese Burrrn, as well as the Brazilian Roadie Crew, Bass Player, Guitar Player and Modern Drummer magazines.

The good reception of the album was essential to result in a long and intense tour that lasted for the years 2014 and 2015. To promote the album in Brazil, the band played in 17 states, went through 7 countries in Latin America and made a A successful European tour with 51 shows in 60 days, including a total of 16 countries in the continent, including performances at some of Europe’s biggest summer festivals such as Summerbreeze, Brutal Assault, Metal Days, Obscene Extreme, among others.

The ‘Victim of Yourself’ promotion tour also took the band to the United States for the first time in 2016. Starting with two presentations on the already traditional ’70000 tons of metal’ cruise, leaving from Florida and going to Jamaica, the tour also passed through much of the West Coast of the country and also to the South, with more than 30 concerts from the state of Washington all the way to the state of Florida. In addition, other new territories were explored by Nervosa, such as Mexico, where the band toured for two weeks, and other locations such as Puerto Rico and Peru.

In 2016, the band recorded their new album, titled ‘Agony’. Recorded and produced in the states of California and Oregon in the United States by Brendan Duffey and mixed and mastered by thrash master Andy Classen, the album had its world premiere announced for June 3 by the Austrian label Napalm Records.

This same year was also very intense regarding shows to promote their latest album: there were more than 160 shows only in 2016.

‘Agony’ promotion tours include a European summer tour with almost 50 dates, a full month of shows on the US East Coast and also in Canada, as well as two European tours as special guests of the German band Destruction for a total of almost 60 shows, part of them being alongside the great bands Flotsam & Jetsam and Enforcer.

In 2017, who officially takes over the drums of the band is the competent Luana Dametto, who already joins it participating in the writing of the new NERVOSA album, scheduled to be out in 2018, and also facing the second leg of Agony promotion tours.

The ‘World in Agony Tour’ will be a tour that aims exploring several countries and continents around the world. So far are already announced the legs in Brazil (which has been taking place since February this year), in Mexico and Central America in May and June and in Europe during the months of July, August and part of September. In addition, plans are already being worked out to take the tour back to the US and Canada, as well as to South America and also in new territories, such as Asia.
