Rival Sons introduce new bassist Dave Beste

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 15th March 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

After recently completely the work on their fourth studio album at LCS Studios in Nashville, Rival Sons have announced the addiiton to their line-up of their new bassist Dave Beste. Originally from Lincoln, Nebraska, Dave Beste moved to Los Angeles in 2000 to pursue music professionally, and has previously performed with the likes of Maroon 5 and Rocco Deluca And The Burden among others.  Beste has been touring with Rival Sons since last August following the departure of Robin Everhart, and plays on the band’s new album, due to be released this summer on Earache Records. Rival Sons frontman Jay Buchanan comments:

Personnel change in a band this tight can be a very worried thing.  Suddenly, you have to reprogram yourself from hearing and doing things in a familiar way in order to move forward, sink into and appreciate the new.  That ‘new’ is Dave Beste and he’s been completely killing it.  A close friend of mine for many years, Beste committed wholeheartedly to helping us out when we were in a tight spot and it didn’t take long to see that the fit couldn’t be more natural.  Also, I can’t wait for people to hear his playing on this new record because he delivered in spades.  So, now it is official.  Bonafide.  Dave Beste is a Rival Son.

New bassist Dave Beste also comments:

I’m thrilled to be joining Rival Sons as a member.  Getting to travel with your buddies and play in a band you already dig is a really special thing.  I couldn’t be happier they asked me to join them in this endeavor.

New Savage Messiah track streaming online

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on 13th January 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

London metallers Savage Messiah have posted a new song from their upcoming album The Fateful Dark, which is set for release on 10th March in Europe via Earache and 18th March in North American via Century Media and Earache.

Savage Messiah, who were recently banned from entering the Freemason UK headquarters in London for a photo shoot after the society deemed the band’s name offensive, are releasing three instant grat tracks on iTunes which can be downloaded in advance of the album’s release.

The new track, called Minority of One, is available now as an instant grat download and can be heard below, along with a previously-released track, Cross of Babylon.  A further track, Hellblazer, will be available as an instant grat download on iTunes on 10th February. Savage Messiah frontman Dave Silver comments:

The title for this song comes from a famous saying by Ghandi, who said that even if you’re in a minority of one, the truth is the truth.  Which is a good message to people about breaking the mould and not getting sucked into ‘group think’ mentality.  Standing up for what’s objectively right and not compromising for the sake of social acceptance.  Musically, this is my favourite Savage Messiah track ever; we’ve managed to marry the thrash and heavy metal elements into a cohesive track, which is catchy and melodic, but still fast and thrashy.  Enjoy!

Savage Messiah banned from United Grand Lodge

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 24th December 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

British metallers Savage Messiah found themselves banned from the United Grand Lodge of England, the oldest Masonic Grand Lodge in the world, after attempting to hire the building for a photo shoot. The reason behind the banning was that the Freemasons find the band’s name to be offensive, citing:

There are concerns over the group’s name and we have to be conscious of our members.

Savage Messiah’s third album, The Fateful Dark, which is to be released on 10th March 2014, thematically covers some of the rituals and controversy of the that surrounds the secret society of Freemasonry. Cross of Babylon, the third track makes reference to a highly secretive Masonic ritual called The Red Cross of Babylon, whilst the eye-catching album artwork, as seen above, depicts themes of greed, power and corruption alongside Masonic iconography. Savage Messiah frontman Dave Silver said:

Once more the dubiously hypocritical nature of religious groups has reared its head. We’ve been denied access to a building due to our apparently “offensive” name. I’m assuming that the word “Savage” is the root of the consternation in question. This I find amusing from a group of people that adhere to a book that promotes Slavery, Genocide and celebrates a single human sacrifice as if it had any baring what so ever in the eradication of “sin” or whatever that is supposed to be. If the band was called “arse-fucked Messiah” I might understand their concern, however the very nature of the biblical myths is based on the most savage of human behaviours. Ironically most Christian churches depict the effigy of a brutal murder, the most violent of image of a man strung up, maimed, humiliated and sacrificed, yet us long haired, peace loving, free-thinking heavy metal louts are too “Savage” to enter a building… Such is the way of the world!

Savage Messiah release their second album via Earache Records entitled The Fateful Dark available on CD and limited edition coloured vinyl and has been available for pre-order since 6pm GMT on Friday 20th December, at the following locations:
