Moonspell Release New Song – “Evento”

There’s only one metal band that is able to hit official album charts on #1 in their home country Portugal, while they belong to the worldwide pioneers of dark art: Naturally and for the first time ever, Moonspell’s brand new album ‘1755‘ comes and is sung in portuguese. Set for release on November 3rd 2017 on Napalm Records, this record will outclass all standards you have ever heard from Moonspell before!

Now the band premieres a new lyric video for the song ‘EVENTO‘ ( english: ‘Event’ ), vocalist Fernando Ribeiro informs us:

“Bury the dead. Take care of the living”. Is one of the most famous quote of Marquis of Pombal (Sebastião José Carvalho e Melo), the minister of the King who together with the crowds of Lisbon and his engineers rebuilt a new Lisbon from the ashes and ruins of the old in just one year time. Event talks about fate, a dialogue built between the narration of the day and the state of mind of Lisbon’s inhabitants and the all powerful choir telling me to be still and accept God’s will. This conflict and the desacralisation of Lisbon is one of the most interesting aspects of this accursed day. A fight that allowed Portugal to step out finally from the Middle Ages and make the country’s entry into Enlightenment.”

1755 comes out November 3 and you can pre-order the album here.

Christopher Bowes of Alestorm Interviewed @ Vans Warped Tour 2017

Oh wow! With their brand new album ‘No Grave But The Sea’, out now on Napalm Records, heavy metal pirates ALESTORM have hit several official album charts!

“I have an inflatable kayak. Does that count? That’s my pirate vessel of choice.” Amb Pirate chats with Christopher Bowes of Alestorm @ Vans Warped Tour 08/04/2017 Shoreline Amphitheater – Mountain View, CA

This unstoppable party machine where the rum flows freely and who once defined their own music as “Stupid songs about getting drunk and stealing treasure”, has now reached their highest chart positions to date and prove, that they belong to the TOP of the most acclaimed and finest heavy metal bands the worldwide scene has to offer.

Says the band:
“For an awful band like Alestorm, that’s incredibly impressive, and it’s higher than anything we’ve ever achieved before! Thank you to everyone who bought an album and made this possible!”

And they promise: “Oh yeah, the coolest thing about this is, we charted higher than the new Shakira album, and she’s an international pop sensation! Does this mean we’ll be doing the theme tune for the next FIFA World Cup? Maybe. Does this mean we’ll dress in leather bikinis and record a cover of “Whenever, Wherever”? Definitely.”

Conan To Hit Sacramento And Oakland In March 2016

conan

Conan are as heavy as interplanetary thunder amplified through the roaring black hole anus of Azathoth. A three piece, in the grand tradition of many amazing fabulous three pieces that hold a tight line and an iron-grip command over the uber-synchronised chord changes and tempo-shifts of the holy trio of bass, drums and guitar. Two men have the task of vocalising wretched thoughts over the turgid weight of Conan. They bear it well, for the task is immense.

Way back, in 2006, Conan formed as a two piece. The years dragged by, fellow warriors came and went, and now they are three – Jon Davis on guitar and vocals, Chris Fielding on bass and vocals and Rich Lewis on drums. Collectively their plans are clear: they seek nothing less than the crushing of a million skulls.

They have committed their filthy, ocean-sized sound to wax (and the slightly less cvlt compact disc) twice thus far- with more fetid output always on the horizon. First came the hulking mass of debut album Horseback Battle Hammer (Throne, Aurora Borealis), followed by a split with like-minded sludge-lords, Slomatics (Head of Crom, Burning World). In December 2011 Conan returned to the remote wilderness of Foel Studio, Wales and into the capable hands of producer Chris Fielding for their next album which is to be released on Burning World Records in Spring 2012.

Hear the roar of battle. Smell the stench of split blood. A thousand heads piled high like a grim mound of suffering- a blasphemy to nature. Hail Conan!

conanthroneoffirebanner-620x400

Prepare to be blown away by the heaviest CONAN album yet as they hack, slash and charge their way into your subconscious. These UK battle titans have just released their highly anticipated masterpiece Revengeance – out now on Napalm Records!

With inspiration taken from video games, retro sword and sorcery movies, ancient battle scenes and the hum and aroma of warm output valves they have laid down 6 songs of total heaviness, unsurpassed in their blend of brutality and tone, groove and flow.

CONAN on the new music video:
“THE END IS NEAR!!!!!!!! Soon we will head to Europe and bring the Throne of Fire to a town near you. Check out our new video for Throne of Fire! We’re looking forward to getting on the road.”

Check out their brand new music video for the track “Throne Of Fire” directed by David Paul Seymour.
