▬ About Moonspell and "Hermitage" ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

MOONSPELL is approaching their 30th anniversary as a band more ambitiously and stronger than ever. Hermitage – the gothic metal pioneers‘13th studio album – was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Paradise Lost, Primordial, Ghost, Sólstafir & many more) at the Orgone Studios in the UK. Building upon the album’s dark, revolutionary and sensitive facets, it’s an entertaining yet epic journey through the darkest days of human existence. Beautifully crafted tracks such as “The Greater Good“ show us the modernity of the wolves in 2021, while “Common Prayers“ embraces the MOONSPELL tradition of writing a dark, gothic metal song like no other band can. “All Or Nothing“ brings back the ethereal and melodic sounds of MOONSPELL, served by a beautiful musical landscape, making it most likely one of the deepest and most sincerely heart-breaking tunes the Portuguese dark metal titans have ever written. But of course, they don‘t stray away from their metal roots, especially influenced by underground metal bands like Bathory on tracks like the bombastic and epic metal anthem “Hermit Saints“! 

Hermitage is a revolutionary, wonderfully intuitive and epic journey by one of the most distinctive dark metal bands of all time, and a testament to what they’ve always loved the most: Honest, emotional metal that binds us even in the darkest times. 

“We know that we are entering the final years of our career as musicians: the winter of our lifetime.” Lead singer Fernando Ribeiro reveals. “We don’t care about people saying we’re still young at heart, or “leading” wolves in a pack. We are not! But we do care about how those around us feel about us, and this album is all about how we feel, our answers to your questions. 

Under these circumstances, we feel our musical stakes are higher than ever. For us, it’s not about likes or algorithms, reach, or opportunity of growth. We only care about the music. Music does come first on this album you will hold in your hands soon enough. The record is called Hermitage and it’s about turning our backs to the conventions of modernity. We are currently convincing ourselves that it’s all about us, that we (humanity) are everything. That the world revolves around us. However, ipsi facto, we are nothing and nothing revolves around us. Moonspell’s goal, on these last turns around the Sun, are to write the best music we possibly can. To tell you a few stories with our lyrics, to be close to you in these times of distancing. We wish not to tease you or to influence you or to sell you our fish. We want to sit down with you at your table and feast together upon our notes and words. Like if we were close friends, like back in the time where music matters the most. In your bedroom listening to music, without having to post our smart remarks about it, inviting the hate in. 

Hermitage is an open-hearted invitation to simplicity. To be humble. To be thankful. To serve you solace. Provide you comfort, entertainment. We sincerely hope this call reaches you. That you kindly accept what we offer. That you take our music with you to the place you must feel as yours. To your secret place, to your hermitage. Blessed be.“

BOKASSA Reveal New Single : So Long, Idiots !

Sunday, April 11, 2021

BOKASSA is one of Norway's most exciting up-and-coming exports when it comes to hard-hitting, groovy and catchy rock music. With millions of streams on their last full-length album, Crimson Riders, as well as supporting tours with METALLICA, BOKASSA is ready to take on the next chapter of their already buzzing story!

On the new single "So Long, Idiots!", BOKASSA comes through with a tight, dense rock banger, displaying the band's undeniable energy while seamlessly transitioning into melodic choruses and tasteful guitar solos. BOKASSA is a serious rock'n'roll powerhouse to be reckoned with in 2021!

Singer/Guitarist Jørn Kaarstad on the new single: "We are beyond excited to finally release 'So Long, Idiots!' to the world! A hook ridden rock anthem that's made for singing along to live! We, as all bands, are eagerly awaiting to play live again and can't wait to play this one on tour in September."

The Norwegian Grammy-nominated band has gripped major attention by fusing polished punk, hardcore and metal riffage, stoner rock grooves and hooky lyricism – forming their own self-proclaimed brand of gritty stoner punk. Upon release, their 2017 debut Divide & Conquer was urgently hailed by critics all over the world and placed prominently on several "Best Of" lists. In 2019, the band set a massive milestone when they were handpicked by Lars Ulrich to support METALLICA alongside GHOST on their summer stadium tour across Europe, the UK and Russia. The legendary drummer hailed them as "his favorite new band" and described them as "Insanely fu**ing cool" after hearing the first album.

BOKASSA is currently finishing up their upcoming full-length album, set to release in 2021 via Napalm Records!

Metal Albums New Releases: April 09, 2021

Friday, April 09, 2021, in Albums, Vidéo

These are the Metal albums that were released in friday April 09, 2021:

DISCLAIMER : This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, I’ll receive a small commission. Thank you so much for clicking through and helping to support this little blog business of mine!

ÅRABROTS‘s 9th full-length album Norwegian Gothic sees the band collaborate with Lars Horntveth (Jaga Jazzist), cellist Jo Quail, Tomas Järmyr (Motorpsycho), Anders Møller (Turbonegro, Ulver) and Massimo Pupillo (Zu). 

The band release their fourth studio album ‘Loss’, their first with the dual vocal attack of Ed Gibbs and Paul Green.

THE END MACHINE are back with their sophomore album, "Phase2," which follows on the heels of their well-received and successful self-titled debut album released in 2018. The End Machine features former classic lineup Dokken members George Lynch and Jeff Pilson with the awesome singer Robert Mason (Warrant, Lynch Mob) on lead vocals. 

FM are celebrating the 30th Anniversary of their second album “Tough It Out” with the release of a new double live album, "Tough It Out Live" 

The album tells the tale of the eponymous town of Horndal - and how it is on a cursed path to destruction for the second time in forty years. 

More than a super-group, The Limit goes over the edge, to deliver real-deal, soulful Rock and Roll. Consisting of members of legendary Punk instigators The Stooges, the founders of Doom Rock Pentagram, legendary NYC Punk originators Testors and infamous Portugese metal band Dawnrider, The Limit break out from the foundations of heavy rock and defy all expectations, to show a new generation what doom and punk really means.

Skin Show could serve as the soundtrack to Times Square in the 1970s - the epicenter of sin and salacious misdeeds; a haven for sex, drugs, and crime beneath the inviting glow of neon signs from sleazy adult video stores; a place one would not dare walk alone after midnight unless tempted by devil himself. Its deviant, raw, nasty, disturbing, and yet, the most lively, evolved, and polished version of the trio yet.

MOTORJESUS are playing a high-octane mixture of classic heavy metal and dirty hard rock. They simply love Rock'n'Roll and celebrate the music. Their love for 70s muscle cars also shows in their artwork and the "Motorized Jesus" has established as their band mascot in their cover-artworks over the past years.

The new album, “Spiritus Mundi”, centers around the poems coming from Nobel Prize winning William Butler Yeats (1865-1939), who Sylvan calls ‘one of the finest poets to come out of Ireland.’ Not having to write the lyrics himself this time gave Nad the opportunity to solely focus on the music. 

"Relentless" is the hotly anticipated sophomore album from the new metal project Sweet Oblivion which showcases former Queensrÿche vocalist Geoff Tate.

“Waiting For Good Luck” is the fifth full-length album from British hard rockers The Treatment. Showcasing an intense sonic power only hinted at thus far, The Treatment is truly firing on all cylinders now. A first listen will instantly reveal hulking riffs and memorable choruses and further listens reveal more and more as the listener delves into this love letter to hard rock. “Waiting for Good Luck” truly is a classic album in the making.

Saturday, April 03, 2021

Morten Veland, SIRENIA's mastermind, bandleader, multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter and producer, was the guest of ZanZanA Live Stream Interview hosted by Karim Benamor on tuesday February 16th.

Morten spoke about "Riddles, Ruins & Revelations", tenth studio album of the Symphonic metal institution SIRENIA, released on February 12 via Napalm Records. 

The questions :
  • The actuality is the release of "Riddles, Ruins & Revelations"

  • After 20 years, what is the Sirenia label ?
  • What comes first, the songs, the composition, he lyrics or the sound ?
  • What were the inspirations for this new album ?
  • What is the reason that made you bring more electronic in your music ?
  • How was the 80s sound an inspiration ?

About Sirenia :

The quartet around mastermind, bandleader, multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter and producer Morten Veland is certainly not afraid of combining a heavy symphonic sound with modern influences, which their latest record, Arcane Astral Aeons (2018) is proof of. This time, SIRENIA offer an exciting new twist to their songs, spicing them with electronic vibes, but never losing sight of their musical core.

The four-piece remains as true to their album title word-play as they do to their dedication to symphonic soundscapes, drawing the listener into a pounding narrative about the darkest aspects of life. All eleven songs accumulate step by step to an integral sound artwork, where the versatile mezzo soprano voice of singer Emmanuelle Zoldan always shines in high-profile.

Most parts of Riddles, Ruins & Revelations were recorded at Audio Avenue Studios in Stavanger, Norway, and mixed and mastered entirely by Morten Veland himself.
