“Dæmonarchrist - Dæmon est Devs Inversvs” is the title of the newest release of the memorable black metal Sicilian band, HERETICAL. Produced by Fabio Monaco (Schizo) and recorded at Sound Empathy Studio (Stockholm), this album represents the return to the scene, after some years of complete discographic silence and a changed line-up : Nefarius - Vocals, Azmeroth - Guitars & Bass, Orias (ex-Aposthate) - Keyboards & Vocals, Arymon (aka Dario Casabona Schizo, Brisen, Zora, ex-Sinoath) - Drums. They, also, confirmed the presence of the singer Gianluca Becuzzi, as a special guest from Limbo, the legendary electro-dark band from Florence.

At the moment HERETICAL is dealing with several recording labels, which seem to be seriously interested in producing their latest, black chapter.
New information and other news will be published soon.

Legendary female metal icon LITA FORD has confirmed the release dates for her new album "Living Like A Runaway".  The album will be released June 15th in Germany, June 18th in Europe and June 19th in North America via SPV/Steamhammer.  The album will be available in four configurations: a gatefold LP, limited edition Digipak incl. bonus tracks, standard CD and digital download.

LITA gave an update on "Living Like a Runaway": “This CD is truly a dream come true.  It took me one year to write this CD along with Producer Gary Hoey and song writing Partner Michael Dan Ehming . We have dumped out hearts and souls into this amazing CD.  Along with a lot of tears, pain, heartache, laughter, ripping out hair, going hungry, losing sleep and a lot of frequent flyer miles.  Living Like a Runaway, is like being able to walk through fire and coming out the other side unscathed.”

Coinciding with the album’s release, LITA is hitting the road in the USA this summer with Def Leppard and Poison on the “Rock of Ages Tour”.  The dates for the first leg of the tour have been announced on the website and more dates are expected to be announced soon.

LITA is looking forward to the tour and getting to play the new songs live : “We are honored with this awesome tour and being able to play with these brilliant musicians.  So strap in tight, it’s going to be one powerful journey.”

Best known for her work with The Runaways and her solo career, featuring hit singles “Kiss Me Deadly” and the Billboard charting duet “Close My Eyes Forever” with Ozzy Osbourne, LITA is ready to make a return to the throne as the queen of metal !

What follows is a message from the band HOLY MOSES : "Hey metal heads,we got some news for you. For us a change became necessary. We all together as the band Holy Moses had to seperate from our longtime comrade and guitarist Michael Hankel. This difficult decision is based on personal reasons and we please you to respect that this is a matter between the band and Michael, so we won´t explain this in detail. Even though musicians are part of the public in general there are some things which have to stay private. We thank Michael for everything he did for the band and wish him all the best for his future with Dew Scented and Erosion. Peter "Pete" Geltat (ex Desilence), who already ennobled our 30th Anniversary Album „In The Power Of Now“ with his guitar skills, will lay the stages in ashes with us for the upcoming shows, which he already proved last weekend at our rehearsals at the Absurd Studios in Hamburg."

New line-up is :

Sabina Classen – Vocals
Peter "Pete" Geltat – Guitars
Oliver Jaath – Rhythm Guitars, Backing Vocals
Gerd Lücking – Drums
Thomas Neitsch – Bass

SLAUTER XSTROYES in the studio to record new album for 2012 ! PDF Print E-mail
Written by Fab   
Sunday, 11 March 2012 23:15

Chicago area heavy metal band, SLAUTER XSTROYES, have begun recording their new album to be released later in 2012 on ROCKADROME Records ! The last time Slauter Xstroyes entered the studio to record an album it was 1987 and the resulting album, “Free the Beast”, was never fully completed and not officially released until the late 90s on compact disc. At this time, their sought after collector favorite 1985 debut album, “Winter Kill”, was also reissued on compact disc and vinyl. These releases further solidified the group’s underground cult following as word of the band and its unique music spread across Europe where they received favorable reviews from critics and fans alike. Despite the urging of friends and fans a sustained Slauter Xstroyes reunion was unfortunately not in the cards at this time. Move the clocks ahead another 10 years or so and Texas label, Rockadrome records, re-releases the “Free the Beast” and “Winter Kill” albums yet again on compact disc. This time around, founding members guitarist Paul Kratky and bassist Brent Sullivan decide it’s time to put the band back together and give it another go.  They recruit former drummer Rick Kroll and vocalist Steve Reimer and set about rehearsing. Word of the band’s possible reunion spreads and Greece’s “Up The Hammers” festival comes calling. After a few local shows they head out to Greece for a fantastic show in front of a packed to the gills club of rabid Greek metal fans. The show is a great success, so they head back to Chicago and start discussing the possibility of a new album and more shows in the Chicago area. Next up, Germany’s “Keep It True” festival recruits Slauter Xstroyes for an appearance. It’s another excellent show from Slauter Xstroyes and they amazingly end up being one of the very few bands ever called back up for an encore. It’s also at this time the “Free the Beast” album is properly reissued on double vinyl and sold out almost immediately. Slauter Xstroyes is officially back !
