Gus G – Brand New Revolution

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on 21st June 2015 by mickbirchy

Gus G
Brand New Revolution
Power Metal/Heavy Metal
Released: 24th July 2015
via Century Media

Gus G should be no stranger to any heavy metal fan. The amount of work he has put out over the last 10+ years is shearly staggering – be that with Firewind, Dream Evil or the prince of darkness himself Ozzy Osbourne.  In early 2014 we got his debut solo record ‘I Am The Fire’.  I did like this album but it was missing a spark. I couldn’t put my finger on exactly what I couldn’t get into, but it just didn’t feel right.  At least not to me. However, with this new album on the horizon Gus G takes it above and beyond. ‘Brand New Revolution’ is nothing short of amazing. Every song feels complete and Gus takes everything he has learned over the years and capitalises on it tenfold. Also the album boasts feature guest vocal appearances from Jeff Scott Soto (Yngwie Malmsteen, Journey, Talisman), Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Jacob Bunton (Adler, Lynam) and Mats Levén (Candlemass, Yngwie Malmsteen, Treat).

Opening on the blistering instrumental tune ‘The Quest’, where Gus just shows off his skill and displays amazing fret control. Just an air guitar fest of a song. After this, every song features a vocalist, so I think it would be best to tackle this album by each singer. Jacob Bunton brings an energy and a charisma to the songs he performs on, including the title track ‘Brand New Revolution’. These songs are played very much to his strengths, just good rock ‘n’ roll style songs with tight riffs and packed solo’s. If there’s one thing Gus knows how to do is pack an amazing solo into a short space on a track with ease.  Jacob has a great voice for these songs and sings with a great amount of confidence. Particularly on the track ‘Burn’, which I feel he was really comfortable singing. I can hear why Gus wanted him to sing on the majority of the album. Singing on 5 of the 12 songs on the album.

Next on the plate we have Jeff Scott Soto, who does a decent job with the songs he’s given. These tunes have a NWOBHM vibe about them and feel like throwback tunes.  Soto has a pretty recognisable voice and I feel he’s utilised pretty well on the songs.  Distinctly on ‘Generation G’. Although I like Soto, I think his songs are the weakest on the record and generally feel rushed.  He’s definitely having fun, so that energy he’s bringing to the tracks works pretty well here.

Elize Ryd is one of my favourite singers of the last few years.  I’m a big fan of Amaranthe, and any generally anything she’s on. She seems to be the queen of collaborations at the moment. She’s done featuring guest vocals on so many tracks from Kamelot to Nergard, and it’s pretty cool to hear her pop up here.  This is one of the few times she has a song completely to herself, as she is usually singing with someone.  Let me tell you now, she can carry a song easily on her own.  Gus has given her this dirty sounding almost tech metal song. ‘What Lies Beneath’ is a great tune with a fun beat and fits Elize’s vocals well. Her vocals just soar here.

Mats Levén, in my opinion, gets some of the strongest songs on the album. He is also the one who sounds the most comfortable on this album. ‘Come Hell or Highwater’ is a fun power metal tune, with some decent rock n roll ideas thrown in. The other two songs he features in are pretty great too. Especially the album’s closing song ‘The Demon Inside’, in which his performance is impeccable. Just great stuff.  Something also has to be said for the backing band on the album too. Gus G regulars, Jo Nunez (Firewind) on drums and Marty O’Brien (Lita Ford) on bass, sound awesome as always. The chemistry just shows on the album making the music even richer.

Overall, I freaking love this album. It far surpasses Gus’ previous solo album, as there’s more consistency and just more fun. He has a passion for metal like no other. Just a rip roaring fun record, made for any fan of heavy metal. Can’t believe I’m awarding my second five out of five this year, but this one has earned it.

5/5

Insomnium launch video for While We Sleep

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 9th April 2014 by Nico Davidson

Insomnium have launched the video for their new single While We Sleep, which is taken from their upcoming album Shadows Of The Dying Sun. The album is due out on 28th April in Europe and 29th April in North America. The video, which can be seen below, was directed by Dariusz Szermanowicz and produced by Grupa 13. Insomnium’s Ville Friman says:

Couple of weeks ago we travelled to Wroclaw, Poland, to shoot the first music video from Shadows of the Dying Sun. This time we decided to work with a Polish production company, Grupa 13, whose work includes new Behemoth video amongst others. The song we chose for the video is called While We Sleep. It’s a wistful song with all typical Insomnium elements included – riffs, melodies, aggression, sorrow, grandeur and hope. We shot everything within one day and it was really a pleasure to work with such a professional film group. Everything went smoothly and we are amazed and very happy with the ending result. You really can’t complain when the film group provides you vodka schnaps between the takes. We sincerely hope that you’ll like the ending result as much as we do.

More details are being made available on Insomnium’s Shadows Of The Dying Sun release. The album will contain 10 tracks, the official track listing is as follows:

1. The Primeval Dark
2. While We Sleep

Lacuna Coil – Broken Crown Halo

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on 24th March 2014 by mickbirchy

Lacuna Coil
Broken Crown Halo

Released 31st March 2014
Gothic Metal/Pop Metal
Released via Century Media

To be perfectly honest, I have had an on-off relationship with Lacuna Coil over the years and was seriously impressed with the 2012 release “Dark Adrenaline”, because of this, I was hoping that this was the start of them coming back to the more Gothic sounding symphonic metal rather than the alt. rock sound they’d been going with, but, this isn’t the case with Broken Crown Halo.  It’s another rock record, which is fine, but this leaves little the atmosphere, the tone and overall makes you wish for something a little extra.

Although it’s not what I was expecting, there is still a lot to like with this album, it starts quite well with the song Nothing Stands in Our Way.  A nice opener with a heavy tone and some cool synth in the back of the production, it’s almost a throwback to the previous album.  Then it goes downhill and fast with onslaught of, quite frankly, lazy sounding music and there is nothing to keep you invested in the songs.  At times there is interesting, even beautiful imagery in the lyrics such as in Hostage to the Light and it’s that imagery that kept me somewhat hooked into the album as the music itself was lackluster.  The band have said “We’ve always been fascinated by the differences and comparisons between real life and fairy tales, and on this album we decided to mix the two worlds when writing our lyrics”  and they do manage to write this in to some of the songs to great effect, giving a sense of wonder, however the music never complements it.

It is only by the halfway point of the album that I become interested in the music again, particularly with the song I Forgive (But I Won’t Forget Your Name), it’s only by this track that the actual music captures my interest rather than the lyrics alone and it seems they keep building on it as the last part of the album is really good.  Sure, there is nothing ground-breaking, but there seems to be a passion during these song.  I became fascinated with the tonal shift, the synth wasn’t just there to sound pretty, it creates an atmosphere whilst the guitars drive the songs forward.

If I were to recommend any of the tracks, definitely check out Infection & In The End I Feel Alive, simply put, these are the two track I found the most interesting.  They are not just throwing old sounds at you nor are the songs boring.  The lyrics are deep and I feel show off what the band was trying to achieve with this album the best.

As one of the bigger names signed to Century Media records they show no sign of slowing down now, this being their seventh record and although this wasn’t the dark and Gothic symphonic metal I had hoped for, it is still a good album.  This is by no means is this a good “jumping on point” if you have never listened to Lacuna Coil before, but the fans of the band and the genre there is clever imagery and enough of a heavy tone to keep your interest.

3/5

Arch Enemy announce new vocalist

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 17th March 2014 by Nico Davidson

Early June will see the ninth studio album, War Eternal, released by Swedish death metal warriors Arch Enemy world wide via Century Media and Trooper Entertainment in Japan. With the ninth studio album, the band will be debuting their brand new vocalist Alissa White-Gluz, formerly of The Angonist. Angela Gossow, who joined Arch Enemy in 2000 and made her debut on the now classic Wages Of Sin, will be stepping down as front-woman and focusing on management, while Alissa takes her place. Angela comments:

Dear Arch Enemy fans, this is not easy to tell you… I have decided to step down from being Arch Enemy’s voice of anger. After 13 years of pure fucking metal, 6 studio albums and countless tours through five continents, I feel the need to enter a different phase in my life, be with my family and pursue other interests. I will however remain business manager for Arch Enemy, and I will continue to develop my artist management roster.

I am staying true to my heavy metal roots, just leaving the spotlight so to speak. I am passing the torch to the super talented Alissa White-Gluz, whom I’ve known as a dear friend and a superb vocalist for many years. I always thought she deserved a chance to shine – and now she’s getting it. Just like I got that chance back in 2001.

I want to thank all Arch Enemy fans, our labels Century Media (worldwide) and Trooper Entertainment (Japan), our dedicated road crew, and in particular Michael, Daniel and Sharlee for their love and support throughout all these years. It’s been one hell of a ride! We conquered every situation, made it through thick & thin together in the most exciting and rewarding time of my life. Thank you all for being there with me on stage, in front of the stage, and backstage. You have touched my heart, and I hope I was able to give something back to you. I am grateful for the wonderful memories – I will cherish them forever!

I am looking forward to the next decade of Arch Enemy madness! Right now I am listening through rough mixes of the new studio album and I am blown away! 2014 will see a renewed Arch Enemy at the top of their game. I am proud to be part of this Arch Enemy chapter, albeit in a different way – revving up the engines behind the scenes. I hope to see you in front of the stage; I will join you there this time. Let the killing begin, once again!

In related news, in three days time, the band will unveil their video for the title track of their upcoming album War Eternal.

We feel that these three songs represent the band perfectly. We are currently working on the new album, an album that will be filled to the brim with what we know to be The Haunted. We’ll start doing gigs this spring and we’ll do festivals all over the place this summer. Get in touch with the festivals you visit (and behave like an animal at) and tell them to get us on the bill! The Haunted is back. Play it loud. No. Louder.

Caliban reveal artwork for Ghost Empire

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 11th November 2013 by Nico Davidson

Caliban have recently revealed the artwork for their upcoming album Ghost Empire. The artwork was designed by UK artist Chris Lovell. Guitarist Marc Görtz comments on the artwork:

Another great artist told me about Chris and his art, when I checked out his page I loved his style and amazing drawings straight away. So I wrote him a message if he would be into designing a T-shirt design for us. It turned out great, so there was no doubt whom to ask for the new album artwork for Ghost Empire! I told him what the album is about and he said that he would love to do it. It didn’t take long for him to come up with first ideas which were amazing! I hope we can work with him on other projects in the future, he is a great guy and easy to work with and I think the result speaks for itself!

The artist of the artwork (which can be viewed above), Chris Lovell, explains how a custom piece of art comes to life:

I have been heavily into metal since the age of 12. It’s always nice when a band I am a fan of contacts me with a brief for a project. I was stoked to read Marc’s ideas as post apocalyptic imagery is something I have an obsession with. I grew up loving films like Mad Max, Cyborg and the Fist Of The North Star anime. There’s something about destroyed buildings and wastelands that stir my imagination and conjure up all kinds of haunting images in my head. It’s also much more fun and easier to draw ruined buildings than perfect ones!

Marc and I brainstormed ideas one evening and we came up with lots of elements we liked such as crows, scarecrows, rats etc. I sketched out a very rough concept idea and layout for the basic image. The front and back cover is all in one, so I had a nice wide landscape to work with. I liked the idea of a road on the main cover, leading to what could look like a hive of collapsed skyscrapers and buildings, leaning on each other and climbing into the clouds. On the left side a cliff face leading down to stormy seas and a shore line littered with ship wrecks and capsized boats. I wanted the image to look void of human life and haunting. I drew out the bulk of the main image in pencil, then used inks and acrylic paint to add depth and highlights. I then scanned the image in and coloured it with a graphics tablet on Photoshop. I drew a number of other elements, like telegraph poles, crows, skulls and rats and scanned them in separately. I wanted to be able to experiment with placement and give the band the option to move elements around etc. I lost track of how many hours I put into the piece, it all becomes a blur. I like to stream horror movies or listen to music and just lose myself in the art I make. I have a bit of an obsession with detail and I tend to spend hours tweaking elements on an image people will probably never even notice. Caliban have been a pleasure to work with. After I had the pleasure of hearing the demos while working on this project it is an honour to have done the artwork for what will be an amazing album!

The album, Ghost Empire, was produced by Görtz in co-operation with Benny Ritcher. Ghost Empire is set for release on the following dates via Century Media:

Germany / Austria /Switzerland / Australia / NZ: 24th January 2014
Rest of Europe: 27thJanuary 2014
USA / Canada: 4th February 2014
