In Flames

In Flames, currently wrapping a successful co-headlining North American tour with Opeth, are pleased to announce the second leg of their Siren Charms Tour for 2015. The band will be charming the hard rock crowds well through 2015.

The band will return to North America and play 21 full headline shows in February and March. The trek launches February 20 in Santa Ana, California and wraps on March 18 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Wovenwar, who supported the band’s European tour, will open all dates, while All That Remains will serve as direct support.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, December 17 at 10AM ET/7AM PT. Go here for all dates and ticket links.

About the upcoming tour, singer Anders Fridén stated, “We are having such an amazing time being on tour in U.S. and sharing our stage with our friends in Opeth that it’s hard to believe how time flies and that there are only a few shows left this year. Therefore, it’s even better to be able to announce that we’ll be back in the beginning of 2015 to see all of you beautiful people again. Thanks to all of you for your support; you make us feel at home!”

“It’s great to be back with Wovenwar,” added guitarist Björn Gelotte. “They did a great job supporting us in Europe; therefore, we are looking forward to take them out again in their home territory. Having All That Remains joining us as the main support means we’ll have a high energy package that we can’t wait to come back to U.S. with.”

In Flames released their 11th album Siren Charms on September 9 via Sony/RED.

In Flames participated in a massive and successful worldwide Yahoo! live stream of their show at Hollywood Palladium. If you are looking for a glimpse of their amazing stage performance and presence, check them out here and be transported to an In Flames gig in an instant.

New Video Interview With Terry Butler Of Obituary/Massacre/Death



Todd Owens chats with Terry Butler of Massacre/Obituary 11/16/14 @ DNA Lounge – San Francisco, California


Terry Butler (Born November 1967) of Tampa, Florida, U.S., is the current bassist in the death metal bands Obituary and Massacre. He was also a member of Six Feet Under and Death. He was credited on the Death albums Leprosy and Spiritual Healing, and band leader Chuck Schuldiner stated that on the latter Death album “Terry contributed to the songwriting as well”.

He is married with three children, and is brother-in-law of former bandmate Greg Gall.

Before he joined Six Feet Under, he was in Massacre with Rick Rozz, whom he played with in Leprosy-era Death. In an interview, Butler has stated: “I’d rather be popular in the underground, than be unknown in the mainstream.”

In late 2011 it was announced that Butler was reforming Massacre with former bandmate Rick “Rozz” DeLillo, with the intention of securing a record deal, recording a new album, and international touring. The band performed on the cruise ship “70,000 Tons of Metal” in January 2012 and subsequently signed a worldwide recording agreement with Century Media Records.

Death Angel is a thrash metal band from Concord, California, initially active from 1982 to 1991 and again since 2001. Death Angel has released seven studio albums, two demo tapes, one box set and two live albums.

Two independent releases, The Ultra-Violence (1987) and Frolic Through the Park (1988), attracted the attention of Geffen Records, which signed the quintet in 1989 and released their next album, Act III, one year later. While Death Angel was touring in support of Act III, drummer Andy Galeon was injured in a tour bus accident and needed more than a year to fully recover. This resulted in the band’s break up in 1991. However, Death Angel reformed in 2001 (without original guitarist Gus Pepa) at the Thrash of the Titans benefit concert for Testament singer Chuck Billy. The band continues to record and perform today.

The Adolescents who helped establish the blueprint for Orange County punk rock according to All Music Guide, announced today they are celebrating the 35th anniversary as a band with the release of their new album La Vendetta… è un piatto che va servito freddo released on Tuesday February 10, 2015 via the independent label Frontier Records. This is the first new music The Adolescents have released on Frontier Records since their iconic ‘blue album’ debut in 1981.
Formed in January 1980 in Fullerton, Ca., The Adolescents (highlighted by core members’ Singer Tony Reflex and Bassist Steve Soto) are as fiery today as they ever were. La Vendetta… è un piatto che va servito freddo (a Sicilian phrase meaning “Revenge is a dish best served cold”) features sixteen tracks of the aggressive hardcore punk rock the band is known for. Loud, fast rules! The band’s socially conscious lyrics tackle hot button topics like police brutality, social injustice, the nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi power plan in Japan and standing up for your rights. 
In fact, the La Vendetta… è un piatto che va servito freddo artwork is a statement in itself. The Orange County band is still furious over the Kelly Thomas beating death by Fullerton police in 2011 so they commissioned Mario Rivera, a Madrid-based artist, to design the album cover that conveys their outrage. The cover features a devil-horned piñata head of ex-Fullerton cop Manuel Ramos (shaded in a piggish hue of pink) and a homeless man wielding a stick, ready to take a whack at the piñata, much to the delight of more homeless people in the background. In light of recent events in Ferguson, Mo. and New York City, this LP cover puts the band front and center in the national debate about the roles of lethal force and law enforcement in modern day America. 
Track listing for La Vendetta… è un piatto che va servito freddo includes:
01.  Monolith At The Mountlake Terrace
02.  A Dish Best Served Cold 
03.  Bulletproof 
04.  Double Down 
05.  Fukushima Lemon Twist
06.  The Last Laugh
07.  30 Seconds To Malibu
08.  Silent Water 
09.  Talking To Myself
10.  Formula 13
11.  Rinse Cycle 
12.  Ricochet Heart
13.  Nothing Left To Say
14.  Sludge 
15.  Sanctuary & The High Cost Of Misery
16.  Let It Go 
The Adolescents are one of the most popular punk bands playing a huge role in the punk rock explosion in Southern California in the early ‘80s. In 1981 they released their self-titled debut album (a/k/a The Blue Album) that would become one of the most influential So Cal punk albums of all time. Along with Bad Brains, Black Flag and Minor Threat, the Adolescents remain one of the most respected bands of the 1980s hardcore/skate punk scene. They were voted the N° 1 best Orange County band of all time by OC Weekly. This is the band’s seventh studio album. 
Tour dates and a record release show in support of La Vendetta… è un piatto che va servito freddo will be announced shortly
