Ex-Judas Priest drummer Dave Holland dead at 69

Former Judas Priest drummer Dave Holland has passed away at the age of 69. Until this point in time no cause of death has been revealed.

His career began with several bands in the 1960s. Then he led classic rockers Trapeze, which Glen Hughes was a part of. Trapeze disbanded in 1979.

He was best known for his drum work on Judas Priest’s golden era records British Steel (1980),  Point of Entry (1981), Screaming for Vengeance (1982), Defenders of the Faith (1984), Turbo (1986), and Ram It Down (1988).

It was rumoured that Holland was writing a book dealing with his life in music, the rape accusations and his prison sentence.

May he rest in peace.

Tom Angelripper announces new Sodom line-up

The Teutonic thrash legends are now a quartet. Tom Angelripper has just announced the new line-up for the band.

The new skinsman is Husky (Asphyx, Desaster), while Frank Blackfire (ex-Kreator, Frank Blackfire, Assassin) and Yorck Segatz (Beyondition) are the new guitarists. This is Blackfire’s second stint in the band. During his previous stint, he helped Sodom record their classic albums Persecution Mania and Agent Orange as well as their live album Mortal Way Of Live.

Tom himself said that two guitarists allow for a more flexible live set and that they will put together set lists with rarely played tracks. For this line-up Tom has intentionally chosen musicians who live in Essen and are Sodom fans. He also promises that Sodom will begin writing new material as soon as possible.

The new single will be released this summer, while the new album be published spring 2019.

MALEVOLENT CREATION Announces New Lineup; 13th Album Due In 2018


An unfinished demo song that will be included on the forthcoming 13th album from MALEVOLENT CREATION can be streamed below. The disc will feature the band’s current lineup, consisting of founding guitarist Phil Fasciana alongside new additions Lee Wollenschlaeger (vocals, guitar), Phil Cancilla (drums) and Josh L. Gibbs (bass).

Fasciana stated about MALEVOLENT CREATION‘s latest incarnation: “After receiving so many great videos and songs from singers wanting to take over the vocal position after the departure of original vocalist Bret Hoffman, I finally have found the right man for the job.

“I received a few songs from Lee Wollenschlaeger and his solo project IMPERIAL EMPIREand was so impressed that after a lot of conversations and hearing his own compositions and demos of him singing MALEVOLENT CREATION songs, I could not deny his talent.

“The demo song posted below is one of his songs that I really liked and told him we could work with his song for the next MALEVOLENT CREATION album and let people hear our new vocalist and his talent. He is also playing guitar in the band, which makes us now a four-piece.

“To prove my commitment to him that he is now the vocalist, I posted this demo song that he wrote and that is being re-recorded as we speak so he can re-write the lyrics and I can lay down a couple guitar solos for this song.

“We will be posting some more music with Lee Wollenschlaeger singing MALEVOLENT CREATION songs, and between the music i have written for the next album and his music, as well as our bassist and drummer who both write music as well, we now have a band that is dedicated to record the heaviest MALEVOLENT CREATION album yet.

Vulture Industries – Live in Sofia 17 November – Club Live & Loud

Лунатиците Vulture Industries от Норвегия определено не извикват само едно кимване с глава, пък било то в знак на одобрение или напротив.
Фронтменът Bjørnar Nilsen, в чиято фигура прозира отличникът-чудак, който винаги е искал да седи сам на последния чин, сега е на предна линия и избухва с екстравагантни начини да изрази себе си, изкарвайки наяве онова, което се крие дълбоко в тъмните, тъмни местенца на човешкото съзнание…
Ако Bjørnar Nilsen бе избрал да стане художник, то той би бил един великолепен експресионист. В известен смисъл той е такъв и сега. Текстовете и музиката на Vulture Industries рисуват картини, всмукват те в разказа, отвличат те от ежедневието и те пращат там, където въображението ти винаги е искало да те разходи. А там, където ще ви заведе то, ще се изправите пред един мозък – мозъкът на артиста, отключил лудостта си, която ще се окаже е и вашата собствената лудост.
