TALISMAN reunite for song in memory of MARCEL JACOB to be released in

Friday, December 20, 2019 - Posted by Rock'N'Growl Promotion, in Vidéo, Communiqués de presse

Talisman, the band founded and created by the late Marcel Jacob in 1989, have written, produced and recorded a new song entitled “Never Die (A Song for Marcel)” for their fallen brother who took his own life 10 years ago on July 21, 2009. 



Surviving members Jeff Scott Soto, Jamie Borger and Pontus Norgren penned the song as a tribute to Jacob as well as the legacy of music they created from 1990 - 2007. The guys created the track to commemorate the 10 years of Jacob’s passing but conflicting schedules didn’t allow them to finish it before the end of the year. Rounding out the current line up who have done a handful of shows together as Talisman since 2014 are Johan Niemann (Evergrey) on bass & BJ (SOTO) on keys/backing vocals.



We felt we needed more than just a social media shout out to Marcel so we dug deep and created a song that not only sounds like the Talisman signature sound but something that I knew lyrically I could pay homage to him” says vocalist Jeff Scott Soto. “Pontus and Jamie wrote the track as well, Jamie provided me with some great melodies which made the lyrics flow with ease! On both pre-choruses, you will hear some Talisman titles incorporated into the lyric, it all came together so perfectly and organically!

Together with Christer Wedin (Sun Hill Production), who was a very close friend/associate of Marcel’s and has been working with Talisman from the very beginning stages of the band, have decided that any and all proceeds from this recording will to go to suicide awareness.

We are very grateful to be chosen as the organization and are very impressed by the commitment from all involved. This is a beautiful way to remember someone who took their own life but at the same time increase knowledge about mental illness within the music industry”, says Hanna Palmqvist, Fundraising Manager Suicide Zero.



Acclaimed producer/engineer, Fredrik Nordström (Hammerfall, Arch Enemy, Opeth) loaned his services to mix the track after it was decided this track should and would not be released for profit to the band. Artwork designer Richard Jones also contributed for no fee “because it is for a good charity cause”.

As this is a celebration for Marcel Jacob and Talisman, it is not clear if or when there might be more to come. Soto adds, “I know this will make many wonder if and when we are returning for a proper reunion album or tour but for now, as we are all SLAMMED with our other musical endeavours, this is something we wanted and had to do...anything that might follow is not quite yet decided on, but with Talisman, we learned to never say never!“

Musicians:
  • Jeff Scott Soto - Vocals
  • Jamie Borger – Drums
  • Pontus Norgren – Guitars
  • Johan Niemann – Bass
  • BJ – Backing Vocals/Keys

Never Die (A Song for Marcel) - Written, arranged & produced by Soto/Borger/Norgren

Ihsahn - Stridig

Friday, December 20, 2019 - Posted by Replica, in Albums, Vidéo, Communiqués de presse

IHSAHN will release the first of two five-track EPs - inspired by and dedicated to his home county of Telemark - on February 14, 2020 via Candlelight Records.
 

The first Telemark EP represents the dark, brutal and aggressive side of Ihsahn’s compositional identity. With three new original songs and two ferocious cover versions, it represents a celebration of the defiant spirit that first inspired him to follow a creative path, forming Emperor, three decades ago.

Ihsahn further explains; “The title of the EP is Telemark – it’s the county I grew up in and still live in, so the whole thing is situated there and very much inspired by that. So you could say it’s a roots-orientated album. I decided early on that I wanted this to be very purely related to black metal aesthetics. I wanted to distil the basic, bare bones black metal influences of my musical roots, given the overall concept, writing something for and from Telemark. I decided to do Norwegian lyrics for the first time, too. It feels very much closer to home in many ways.”
 
TRACKLIST
  1. Stridig
  2. Nord
  3. Telemark
  4. Rock ‘n’ Roll Is Dead [Lenny Kravitz cover]
  5. Wrathchild [Iron Maiden cover]
 

Having spent the last few years steadily becoming a prolific live performer, both with his solo band and a rejuvenated Emperor, Ihsahn already has firm plans to take the Telemark EP out on the road. The new material crackles with live energy and sounds custom-designed to tear people’s faces off in the live arena: with grand plans to bring the record’s chilling black metal aesthetics to life for some unique live performances, the defiant spirit of Telemark looks certain to shake foundations across the world in 2020.


“My idea all along was that I would perform all the contents of this EP live, but to build the live set, piecing songs from my catalogue that fit with the aesthetics of the EP,” Ihsahn concludes. “I was very lucky to be able to collaborate with the Inferno Festival, so I’ll be premiering this show at Inferno in 2020. The plan is to then follow up this EP with its aesthetic and musical counterpart, wherein I can distil all those more progressive, experimental and mellow elements of my music.”

MORE ABOUT IHSAHN: -

More than any other artist to emerge from the fertile black metal scene of the early ‘90s, Ihsahn has firmly established himself as an unpredictable maverick. Frontman and chief composer with the legendary Emperor, he re-wrote the rulebook on epic extreme music across a series of albums that are still widely regarded as classics. From the genre-defining majesty of In The Nightside Eclipse in 1994 to 2001’s wildly progressive tour-de-force Prometheus: The Discipline Of Fire & Demise, Ihsahn’s unique approach and liberated musical ethos ensured that when he embarked on a solo career with 2006’s The Adversary, fans were primed to expect the unexpected.

Since that debut’s explosive arrival, Ihsahn has forged fearlessly ahead, conjuring an extraordinary catalogue of ground-breaking solo albums along the way. Strong roots in extreme metal have remained an integral part of his ever-evolving sound, but from the saxophone-drenched melancholy of 2010’s After to the avant-garde squall of 2013’s Das Seelenbrechen and on to the ornate duality that produced the vicious and weather-beaten Arktis (2016) and the icily claustrophobic Ámr (2018), Ihsahn’s musical journey has been relentlessly fascinating and frequently revelatory.

UNSAFE - Mankind

Thursday, December 19, 2019 - Posted by Karim Benamor, in Albums, Vidéo, Communiqués de presse

Surprise ! About five years after the release of 'Enter Dark Places' (2015, Mighty Music), French female-fronted metal band UNSAFE just officially released its brand new full-length album called 'Mankind' on Digital exclusive through Bandcamp and the main legal services (Apple Music, Amazon, Deezer, Spotify...).

In addition to the official release-news and while the album is also planned for a physical release on January 2020, 'Mankind' is also available right now for full-streaming on bandcamp.


"The new album 'Mankind' manages to gather everything which makes the strength of the band, a catchy music with songs that people can remember from the first listening and won't forget. Most efforts have been made for the composition of the tracks, mixing more complex songs with more simple ones, searching for the good melody and the groove for most of the riffs.

The vocals have also an important place in this album, they must bring their final touch to the songs. The lyrics focus on themes such as the destruction of our planet, overconsumption, the loss of values, the rise of individualism and selfishness.."
 


...For the record...

Formed in 1998 by Stéphanie Nolf (bass) and Lionel Faucher (guitar), UNSAFE took advantage of a long experience of the underground scene to improve its style, having the privilege to share the stage with Napalm Death, Textures, Crucified Barbara, Eluvetie, NASUM, No Return, Hacride, Lofofora, Mass Hysteria, Nostromo, Execution …

8 recordings (3 demos & 5 albums) compose the discography of the band.

Three new musicians -Xavier Garrabos (Drums), Luke Perry (Guitar), Christophe Vivier (Bass)- came to complete the line up and add their experience and personal touch to improve the music of Unsafe.
 
For fans of Lamb Of God, Machine Head, Pantera...
