- JAMES LABRIE SCHEDULED TO RELEASE NEW SOLO ALBUM
'ELEMENTS OF PERSUASION' THROUGH INSIDEOUT MUSIC AMERICA
ON APRIL 5, 2005
DREAM THEATER VOCALIST SCHEDULES THREE U.S. CONCERTS ONLY
The musical ideas percolating within vocalist James LaBrie are endless.
His new solo album, 'Elements Of Persuasion,' will be released on April
5, 2005, via InsideOut Music America. Three East Coast tour dates are
scheduled shortly after. These are the only U.S. dates planned at the
'Elements Of Persuasion' is the first one the Dream Theater vocalist
is releasing under his own name. Using the moniker MullMuzzer, LaBrie
has actually released two previous solo albums, 1999's 'Keep It To Yourself'
and 2001's '2.'
The 12 songs on 'Elements Of Persuasion' are "Crucify," "Alone,"
"Freaks," "Invisible," "Lost," "Undecided,"
"Smashed," "Pretender," "Slightly Out Of Reach,"
"Oblivious," "In Too Deep" and "Drained."
LaBrie has earned worldwide success with Dream Theater's updated style
of progressive rock, but 'Elements Of Persuasion' finds him taking on
a more straightforward rock direction. The songs are challenging and
intricate while still allowing LaBrie to expand his musical vision.
His unmistakable, distinctive voice ties the songs together, making
'Elements Of Persuasion' a fully realized, cohesive work.
LaBrie is scheduled to perform a few select U.S. concerts in spring
2005 before embarking on an extensive European tour. Schedule permitting,
he will then return for more U.S. dates. LaBrie's touring band includes
keyboardist Matt Guillory and guitarist Marco Sfogli (who both played
on 'Elements Of Persuasion'), bass guitarist Andy DeLuca (Symphony X)
and drummer John Macaluso (Yngwie J. Malmsteen's Rising Force, Ark).

- OZZFEST - the king of festivals - triumphantly returns this summer
to celebrate its hard-earned 10th anniversary with the staggering line-up
of BLACK SABBATH, IRON MAIDEN, ROB ZOMBIE, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, SHADOWS
FALL and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY.
The summer's premier concert festival - which has propelled many of
today's rock bands to superstardom while paying close attention to its
discerning fans - will roll out July 15 in Boston and visit 26 cities
by the time it reaches West Palm Beach on September 4. The Hot Topic
Second Stage will be headlined by ZOMBIE and feature a preview of rock's
rising stars, including AS I LAY DYING, MASTODON, THE HAUNTED, IN FLAMES,
ARCH ENEMY, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, BURY YOUR DEAD, SOILWORK, TRIVIUM,
IT DIES TODAY, A DOZEN FURIES and more.
"I'm most proud of the success of Ozzfest," says founder Sharon
Osbourne. "Everyone said it would never happen and 10 years later
we are still in business." In fact, 125 bands, 238 shows and over
4 million fans later, the all-day extravaganza of music and deranged
merriment is roaring louder than ever. History in the making, 2005 marks
the first time metal legends
BLACK SABBATH and IRON MAIDEN have toured together and also represents
IRON MAIDEN's first Ozzfest appearance.
IRON MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson said, "This summer's MAIDEN
touring is based on the recent 'Early Days' DVD and all the songs we
do at Ozzfest will be from our first four albums - 'Iron Maiden', 'Killers',
'Number of the Beast' and 'Piece of Mind'. We will be bringing over
our full European show, naturally including as special guest Eddie in
various appropriate guises!! The stage sets, production and backdrops
will recreate aspects of the shows on the tours around those albums
- only bigger... much bigger!!! We don't know if anyone has done anything
like this before but we think it's something the fans will really appreciate
both in the choice of songs and in the production values."
- GZR, FEATURING BLACK SABBATH'S GEEZER BUTLER, TO RELEASE ‘OHMWORK’
ON MAY 10, 2005, VIA SANCTUARY RECORDS
‘OHMWORK’ IS THE THIRD SOLO BAND PROJECT FROM THE LEGENDARY
BASS GUITARIST AND LYRICIST
GZR, the quartet led by legendary Black Sabbath bass guitarist and lyricist
Geezer Butler, will release its new studio album Ohmwork through Sanctuary
Records on May 10, 2005. Ohmwork is Butler’s first album in eight
The 10 songs on Ohmwork are "Misfit," "Pardon My Depression,"
"Prisoner 103," "I Believe," "Aural Sects,"
"Pseudocide," "Pull The String," "Alone,"
"Dogs Of Whore" and "Don't You Know." "I Believe"
is the first single.
Butler is joined by vocalist Clark Brown and guitarist Pedro Howse,
his longtime collaborators, and new drummer Chad Smith. Ohmwork is Butler's
third solo band release. His first project under the GZR banner was
1995's Plastic Planet while 1997's Black Science was credited to Geezer.
Howse has worked on all three albums. Brown performed on Black Science.
"I feel that this album is more like our first album, Plastic Planet.
On this album I wanted to strip everything down to the bare essentials,
so every song would have a live band feel, which I think we achieved.”
The band went hurtling into the studio with a hectic 10-day recording
schedule. “There’s a spirit of spontaneity and freshness
that can only be achieved when you approach a record in that manner,”
recalls Geezer. “It’s the way the first two Sabbath albums
were done. Black Sabbath was recorded in two days and Paranoid took
a week and that’s what I wanted with my new record – 10
days done ‘n’ dusted.”
A potent, tangible band dynamic is crucial for Butler. He does not ever
want an album credited to "Geezer Butler" when it is a true
"It's important to me that we have a band identity, because the
album is a band collaboration. Everyone brings their own specialties
to the songs, and we all know our capabilities, and we all work extremely
hard together," Butler says.
Butler is proud of the fact that GZR's music appeals to both young metal
fans as well as Black Sabbath fans. He attributes this fact about cross-generational
appeal to heavy metal's very essence.
GZR touring plans are being put together for Fall 2005.
- According to an online posting by NEVERMORE frontman Warrel Dane,
the singer completed "the main vocals [Friday night, March 11]
for a song called 'Final Product'. All the drums and rhythm guitars
are done, just doing vocals, bass, and acoustic guitars at the moment."
NEVERMORE are currently at Backstage Studios in Derbyshire, U.K. recording
their brand new and highly anticipated studio album, entitled "This
Godless Endeavor", with producer Andy Sneap (MACHINE HEAD, KILLSWITCH
ENGAGE, ARCH ENEMY, EXODUS, OPETH), who has previously worked with the
band on their "Dead Heart In a Dead World" CD. Other songtitles
set to appear on the album include "This Godless Endeavor",
"The Psalm of Lydia", "Killing Time for the Pretty Ones",
"Sentient 6" and "Bittersweet Feast". NEVERMORE
are also recording a cover version of OZZY OSBOURNE's "Revelation
(Mother Earth)". A summer release is expected.
- Swedish experimental extreme metallers MESHUGGAH have finalized the
track listing for their new album, "Catch 33", due on May
16 in Europe and May 31 in the U.S. via Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up
to 2002's "Nothing" is being described as one continuous 47-minute
song divided into 13 parts and is said to be "musically the opposite"
of the group's 2004 EP, "I".
"Catch 33" track listing:
01. Autonomy Lost
02. Imprint Of The Un-Saved
04. The Paradoxical Spiral
07. Mind's Mirrors
08. In Death - Is Life
09. In Death - Is Death
11. Personae Non Gratae
The artwork, which was designed by MESHUGGAH drummer Tomas Haake, is
"a visual compliment of sorts to the album title, i.e the paradoxes/negations/contradictions
of life and death (as we see it in our finest moments of unrestrained
metaphoric interpretation) that the lyrics [on the new album] deal with!"
according to Haake.

- DEBRIS INC TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
ALBUM IN STORES APRIL 5
Philadlephia: Candlelight Records with Rise Above Records announces
the first confirmed dates on DEBRIS INC's forthcoming tour. Beginning
April 13, the month-long tour will conclude with their second appearance
at the annual Emissions of the Monolith Festival in Youngstown, OH.
The tour will be in support of the band's self-titled debut set to hit
stores nationwide on April 5. Some venues are still confirming in their
locks on the tour; with noted additions available at the band's official
Since their fated demise, the mournful cries of Saint Vitus have continued
to echo from a distant cave of cult obscurity and the doom scene has
never really been quite the same since their passing. DEBRIS INC is
the new band featuring Vitus alumni Dave Chandler with long-time Trouble
bassist Ron Holzner. Outlaws who on occassion join in the drunken bedlam
include Trouble’s Barry Stern, Eyehategod/Superjoint Ritual/Crowbar
skinsman Jimmy Bower, and Goatsnake/Obsessed-famed Greg Rogers among
DEBRIS INC. write classic anthems for the depressed, the stoned, happy
and angry punkers, metalheads and lazy scumbags alike. Tracks like “The
Old Man and His Bong” and “Pain” bring to mind classic
Vitus with an even heavier shadow of doom lingering over the sombre
proceedings. The album’s storming chant-a-long punk anthems, "Full
Of Shit" and "You're The Reason I'm Medicated," are sure
to be instant favorites whilst the the band’s raucous cover of
Fear classic "I Love Living In The City" comes across sounding
more akin to early ‘Flag on crack!
Already extremely active, DEBRIS INC have toured the US with labelmates
Orange Goblin, have made appearances at Templars of Doom, Emissions
of the Monolith and Milwaukee Metal Festivals (with European sightings
at the prestigious Wacken Open Air Festival). The band recently collaborated
with Los Angeles-based Crisis for a reworking of X’s “Nausea.”

"We'd like announce that Rob Barrett, who as you all know played
guitar with Cannibal Corpse from 1993 to 1997 and appeared on The Bleeding
and Vile albums, will be rejoining the band for our performance at the
Northwest Death Fest in Seattle on April 3rd.
Whether or not Rob will be staying with the band permanently after that
show is still not certain, but so far we're very happy to have Rob back
in the fold. We'll post an update when we know for sure if Rob is permanently
rejoining or not.
We also would like to say thank you to Jeremy Turner for doing an amazing
job playing guitar with us on The Wretched Spawn tour in 2004. Jeremy
really helped us out in a tight spot, and we wish him the best in his
future musical endeavors."
- UPDATE FROM GREEN CARNATION
Green Carnation are currently working hard to get confirmed a number
of shows to promote the album The Quiet Offspring. Singer Kjetil Nordhus
can reveal there has been negotiations with promoters "all over
the world" and are desperate to go public with some of the dates
"The planning and negotiations have taken a lot of time, but it
seems like the first dates are about to be confirmed by all parts within
the next couple of days. We are working on a mini-tour in Europe, festivals
on two different continents, and another mini-tour in a much warmer
place than Norway"
The Norwegians have again been blessed with rave reviews on their new
record, from all over the world, and the band are increasingly actively
looking for a management or booking agency to help dealing with the
growing interest from promoters.
"This is something which we have been wanting for a while, but
we haven't got the right offer yet. The interest from people wanting
to do gigs with us has been big lately, and to have someone working
for us, so we could concentrate on making music, would be a great thing,"
he says, and adds that interested parties (management, booking, promoters)
can contact him: [email protected]
The only confirmed gig until now is the Inferno Festival in Oslo the
coming Easter, Saturday March 26th at Rockefeller Hall.
"We are really looking forward to that, and we're spending some
days next weekend on the rehearsal room, to be fully prepared to impress,"
Kjetil Nordhus says. Metal

THE OLD DEAD TREE will enter the Stage One Studio, Germany, by the beginning

"All in all I like the result, I think it's a great album, which
doesn't sound like anything I've heard so far, so I hope the band will
come back again to Stage One Studio to do some more beautiful albums."

- WORMOOD SIGN WITH CODE666!
Hailing from "la belle France", Wormfood is a shifted and
eclectic band, performing a grim, unforeseeable, declining and immersive
The band takes a malicious pleasure to disconcert the listener, using
provocative topics, advanced classical arrangements,
and cinematic atmospheres, with a squeaking humour...
The vocal register, in french and english, follows this tendency, alternating
in a theatrical way between death, black, gothic, punk or french variety...
An ironical and serious reflexion on the metal genre itself. Their shocking
new album is scheduled for autumn 2005 on code666.
- NEGURA BUNGET NAME NEW MCD!
Transilvanian Black Metallers Negura Bunget Decided to postpone the

- THE AXIS OF PERDITION RELEASE NEW ALBUM
The Axis of Perdition are taking you further in, whether you like it
or not, in a more conceptually structured nightmare than before, following
a sole character imprisoned in and navigating the dark labyrinth of
the "Transition Hospital" (first alluded to on the previous
mini-album “PHYSICAL ILLUCINATION IN THE SEWER OF XUCHILBARA"),
drawn inexorably towards his own ultimate revelatory terror. A more
expansive, epic and vivid journey into their own unutterable darkness
than they have attempted before, "Deleted Scenes..." sees
the band more drenched in dark ambience than ever, the guitars more
abstract and warped into unpleasant shapes, the vocals as cathartic
and painful as ever. You have been warned: It just gets worse, and it's

- CORROSION OF CONFORMITY TO RELEASE 'IN THE ARMS OF GOD'
ON APRIL 5, 2005, THROUGH SANCTUARY RECORDS
FIRST STUDIO ALBUM IN FIVE YEARS FEATURES
SPECIAL GUEST DRUMMER STANTON MOORE OF GALACTIC
SPRING TOUR WITH MOTORHEAD SCHEDULED
CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, the Grammy-nominated heavy rockers from North
Carolina, will release 'In The Arms Of God' through Sanctuary Records
on April 5, 2005. It's the band's first studio album in five years.
Lead vocalist/guitarist Pepper Keenan, guitarist/vocalist Woody Weatherman
and bass guitarist/vocalist Mike Dean are joined on the album by special
guest drummer Stanton Moore, a member of the highly respected jazz/funk
band Galactic. He is a longtime friend of Keenan's, and both men are
natives of New Orleans.
The 12 tracks on 'In The Arms Of God' are "Stone Breaker,"
"Paranoid Opioid," "It Is That Way," "Dirty
Hands Empty Pockets/Already Gone," "Rise River Rise,"
"Never Turns To More," "Infinite War," "So
Much Left Behind," "Backslider," "World On Fire,"
"Crown Of Thorns" and "In The Arms Of God."
The first video is for "Stone Breaker." Directing was Rio
Hackford, son of 'Ray' director and Academy Award nominee Taylor Hackford.
COC's latest work reflects the band's long tradition of evolution. "We
started writing songs, and they somewhat had the vibe of 'Blind,' 'Deliverance'
and our earlier material," says Keenan. "We started thinking
from that perspective, and it evolved into a heavy, classic sound but
with a modern wisdom to it."
"We really got back to our roots with this one, listening to old
records that we all grew up on and headbanging at Woody's farmhouse,"
he adds. "It was a good time putting it together."
The result, Keenan says, is a "bombastic, epic record, staying
clear of the three-minute formula. It's not a nostalgic record by any
means; it's big and ugly and heavy. Thematically, there's a lot of disgust,
directed inwardly and towards society in general, reflecting these times
we all live in. A lot of people will be able to relate."
Producing was COC's longtime collaborator and knob-twisting, speaker-blowing
genius, John Custer. Besides working on four of the band's previous
albums, Custer also produced COC bassist Mike Dean's track "Access
Babylon" on Dave Grohl's 'Probot' project and COC's contribution
to 'Nativity In Black,' the Sabbath tribute compilation.
The band was very excited to work with Moore. Over the past year, COC
found themselves writing intense material and needed a drummer who could
not only handle it but take it to another level. Keenan, who had since
moved back to his hometown of New Orleans, called his old friend Moore
to ask him if he knew any drummers up for the task.
Moore laughed. "Yeah, me, " he said.
Within four days, COC was in New Orleans undertaking a musical adventure
without a map. It's the type of creative situation in which the band
thrives and distinguishes itself as an original force in heavy music.
Though COC's onslaught represented a departure for Moore, he was more
than up for the challenge.
"His performance was totally original and category-crushing,"
Weatherman says. "He stepped right into it full-throttle."
"He's one of the most progressive drummers I know," Keenan
says of Moore. "In the heavy metal world nobody really knows who
he is, but after they hear this they will. He's an accomplished jazz
drummer playing manic heavy music — I've never heard anything
'In The Arms Of God' is musical statement from men who care about the
"It's disturbing and full of ugly power, but ultimately there's
a shred of optimism," says Keenan. "It was worth the wait."
To promote 'In The Arms Of God,' COC is embarking on a major North American
tour this spring with Motorhead. Keenan, Weatherman and Dean have recruited
longtime friend and former Cry Of Love member Jason Patterson as their
touring drummer. Schedule permitting, Moore might sit in occasionally
with COC. For more information, visit www.coc.com.
Confirmed dates with Motorhead so far include:

- An official press release from THE ETERNAL
Melbournites, come down and celebrate our new line-up and new songs!

at the Duke of Windsor (179 Chapel St. Windsor) on Saturday 30 April
with Tailbone, Alpha State and Nitidus. They will be unveiling two new
members (Marty O'Shea on drums and Lincoln Bowen on guitar).
Their debut album ('The Sombre Light of Isolation') has recently been
licensed for release in Brazil, Russia & Asia, and was named 2nd
best Australian release of 2004 by Triple J's Andrew Haug, and voted
5th best Australian release of 2004 by listeners to his show, Full Metal
Racket. The band was also listed in Kerrang! magazine's '50 Most Wanted
bands' at the end of 2004.
Since their return from foreign shores, The Eternal have written material
for their second album, which they are currently recording in Palm Studios
with Endel Rivers. The album is tentatively titled 'Everlasting' and
is due to be completed in April. It is scheduled for a September release
through Firebox Records.
Production of a DVD centered on their Australian, Hong Kong and European
tour is also nearing completion. Some concert footage and audio, as

- BLUT AUS NORD ALBUM ENHANCED
BACK CATALOG PREPARES STATESIDE RELEASE
Philadelphia: Candlelight Records is proud to continue its worldwide
promotion for the highly regarded French extreme band BLUT AUS NORD.
The expanded promotion is set to include the exclusive stateside reissue
of the band's most recent record, The Work Which Transforms God, the
long-awaited availability of the band's previously unavailable back
catalog, and the launch of the newly agreed worldwide cooperation with
Appease Me Records - the label owned/operated by the band.
The Work Which Transforms God was released in the US May 2004. Since
that time the record has found a solid stateside audience with growing
curiosity as their name and profile slowly grow. Now Candlelight will
enhance the record, adding to it the band's amazing new mcd, Thematic
Emanation Of Archetypal Mutiplicity. This 2cd version of The Work will
replace the original version and is set for release April 19. This special
pressing is exclusive for the US market. Following its release, Candlelight
will issue for the first time in the US the band's back catalog, namely
Ultima Thulee and Memoria Vestusta. Both are scheduled for release June
Formed in 1994, BLUT AUS NORD have amassed a sizeable recording history
that still remains out of reach of most US audiences. Signing with Candlelight
Records in early 2004, this impressive Avignon-based band finally found
their portal to reach American music fans. The Work Which Transforms
God is a harrowing epic that is as equally bleak as it is grandiose.
It is a challenging record that is sinister to its blackened core; bleak
in all manner of speaking. Serving as the musical equivalent of Mayhem
sodomizing Neurosis with a Godflesh joystick, the band redefines music
as any extreme music fan (metal or otherwise) knows it. Their macabre
creations throw ardent fists in the face of mainstream and mediocrity,
resulting in a nightmarish voyage of sonic disharmony. England’s
SonicDeath says it best when noting, “listening to Blut Aus Nord
is like watching your own funeral in slow motion... a great sucking
veil of endless, foreboding darkness.” Live4Metal adds “Blut
Aus Nord march out of the shadows and blow our minds with true innovation.”
The first releases through Candlelight and Appease Me Records will also
hit stores June 28. Planned are the debuts from Overmars and Monolithe.
Regarding the cooperation, BLUT AUS NORD founder/vocalist Vindsal says,
"It's a great evolution for us. Candlelight's experience in all
the domains - artistic development, production, distribution, promotion,
etc - will be very precious for us. We want to present an ellitist vision
of extreme music with Appease Me being a label of artistic explorators.
All the bands signed are unique in their style and we'll always work
in this way. Extreme quality not quantity."
- BEYOND THE FLESH
To Release WHAT THE MIND PERCEIVES Through
Screaming Ferret Wreckords/Escapi Music
On March 29, 2005
The new breed of metal has arrived. Rocketing out of New Jersey with
a devastating sound and an impressive local fanbase, Beyond The Flesh
have quickly gained a foothold in the heavy music scene of today. After
their 2001 debut, Spawned From Flesh and Bone, the band became legendary
in the Garden State, drawing curious metal fans from far and wide and
leaving a trail of converted followers in their wake. With a sound that
not only borrows from all that is and once was great in metal, while
still standing well on their own eight feet, Beyond The Flesh have carved
an upwards swathe through the metal scene.
The lineup of Justin Leary (vocals, guitar), Senen Solis (drums), Rick
Flanegan (lead guitar) and Brian Gawaski (bass) recently signed a deal
with Screaming Ferret Wreckords/Escapi Music. With a true metal label
behind them in 2005, Beyond The Flesh are now prepared to release What
the Mind Perceives, a brutal assault of original melodic death/thrash.
The band’s newest effort is already winning much fan and media
praise. BW&BK listed What the Mind Perceives as one of the Top 10
Indie albums of the year. Expect to see the band on the road soon, tearing
the roof off of a venue near you.

- IVORY KNIGHT ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM “UNCONSCIENCE”, OPENING
FOR SONATA ARCTICA IN OTTAWA
Ottawa, Ontario, February 28, 2005
Classic heavy metal band Ivory Knight is proud to announce its new full-length
CD, titled Unconscience, released in mid January, 2005. Ivory Knight
is also proud to announce that they have been chosen out of several
other bands to open for Finnish power metal sensation Sonata Arctica
in Ottawa, Canada. The show is on April 15th, 2005, at Ottawa’s
premier music venue, Barrymore’s Music Hall.
The new album was mixed and mastered by the Jeff Waters of the great
Canadian metal act Annihilator, and features artwork by Gyula Havanscak,
who also did the artwork for Annihilator’s last album.
During the late 1980s, Ivory Knight was a name familiar to metal fans
who witnessed the bands exciting live performances at venues including
Ottawa’s Barrymores, Porter Hall, and (now-defunct) Roxannes in
Hull. The band shared the stage with many great acts including Sword
and Blackstar (featuring John Ricci and Jacques Belanger of Exciter).
The band recorded a demo “Voices In Your Nightmare” which
received excellent reviews from all over the world. The band broke up
in 1990 due to musical differences. Founding member John Devadasan Perinbam
reformed the band in late 1999 with drummer George Nesrallah, bassist
Steve Mercer, and guitarist Rob Gravelle. The band, featuring the soaring,
powerful, passionate vocals of Perinbam and the virtuosity of Gravelle,
recorded an album ‘Up From The Ashes’ which received excellent
reviews from fans and critics throughout the world. The band has played
many shows in the Ottawa area including the Rainbow and Café
Here’s what the critics are saying:
"Ivory Knight embrace the crucial elements of rhythm and melody
that put the blister and bruise in melodic rock...This is really good
stuff, which leaps out of the speakers, especially the vocals of founder
and multi-instrumentalist John Devadasan Perinbam. His performance,
especially, just flat out lays it all out there, and the reverence that
Perinbam, along with band members Rob Gravelle (lead guitar), George
Nesrallah (drums), and Steve Mercer (bass), pin down with exploding
points of passion is truly inspiring. There is something really special
about this band, and I feel I’m not alone when saying so….
- Heidi Drockelman
Transcending The Mundane (USA) - Issue #21:
"Another great Canadian band...They write catchy songs, have professional
musicianship, and have a very good vocalist....Perinbam reminds me of
a cross of Barren Cross' Mike Lee and Bruce Dickinson. There's a lot
to like on Up From The Ashes… they will gain loyal fans because
they are obviously all about quality...83/100 - Brett Van Put

- JUDAS PRIEST BLAZE ONTO BILLBOARD'S TOP 200 AT NO. 13
BAND RETURNS SCREAMING FOR VENGEANCE WITH NEW ALBUM ANGEL OF RETRIBUTION
HIGHEST CHART DEBUT IN BAND'S THIRTY-PLUS-YEAR-CAREER
Fifteen years after the release of their last studio album (Painkiller),
a reunited Judas Priest has returned with skyscraping ambition and thunderous
sound to match. Fueled by blistering lead single "Revolution,"
new release ANGEL OF RETRIBUTION rocketed onto Billboard's Top 200 this
week at # 13, the highest debut in the band's illustrious 30-plus-year-career.
The album is drawing rave reviews from ravenous fans and critics alike,
including Rolling Stone, who gave it 3 1⁄2 stars. "This is
what Judas Priest fans have been waiting for," wrote Revolver.
"Hallelujah!" praised GQ, "Judas Priest screams again."
The Associated Press wrote, "Judas Priest seems primed to reclaim
their perch as the most dominant band in heavy metal."
Co-produced by Roy Z and Priest, ANGEL OF RETRIBUTION follows the 2004
release of the band's acclaimed career-spanning boxed set Metalogy and
their headline-grabbing stint on last summer's Ozzfest tour. The album
is available in two configurations: the first is a DualDisc set featuring
the full album and an action-packed DVD. The 30-minute disc amplifies
the album with behind-the-scenes documentary footage and classic live
tracks filmed last summer during two speaker-shattering shows in Spain.
ANGEL OF RETRIBUTION was also released as a limited edition double-disc
set featuring the new tracks and a long-form DVD bundled in special
hardcover packaging. The total running time of the DVD is 1 hour, 12
minutes, highlighting the seven live cuts and 40 minutes of documentary
The legendary Priest—vocalist Rob Halford, guitarists Glenn Tipton
and K.K. Downing, bassist Ian Hill and drummer Scott Travis—is
currently tearing up stages across Europe and gearing up for a U.S.
- Candlelight Records in association with Continental Entertainment
proudly announces the premiere of "Atman Project," from KRYOBURN'S
debut album, Enigmatic Existence. The label will make the song available
for download beginning 9am EST on Saturday, March 12. Bring your brower
to the label's US site, www.candlelightrecordsusa.com
to download the MP3.
Pooling the sounds and styles of Strapping Young Lad, Fear Factory and
the early power and might of Pantera, Carlsbad, New Mexico-based KRYOBURN
are a young band with a world of possibility. For the past three years
the four-piece have braved their way from sea to sea, making stops and
friends along the way. It was during a performance in El Paso that the
band would would make introduction and impress Eddy Garcia of Pissing
Razors fame. Numbers exchanged and months later, the five men would
regroup to lay down sounds that would ultimately become Enigmatic Existence.
"This is one band that plays it like they want to and damn the
rules. KRYOBURN plays with a Pantera-like fury but their songwriting
is so different that to compare the two is almost impossible,"
In the coming weeks, Candlelight Records plans upcoming premieres that
will include the first sounds from ProPain's new album, Prophets of
Doom (in stores June 14), the debut album from Norway's Octavia Sperati
and England's Dam.
Kryoburn's Enigmatic Existence is scheduled for release on April 5.

- BEN JACKSON GROUP SCHEDULED TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM
'ALL OVER YOU' ON MARCH 29, 2005, THROUGH SCREAMING FERRET WRECKORDS
Florida-based heavy metal band the Ben Jackson Group is set to release
its new album 'All Over You' on March 29, 2005, via Screaming Ferret
Wreckords. 'All Over You' is the band's second album.
Vocalist/guitarist Ben Jackson created his own band to further expand
the musical direction explored by his previous bands Crimson Glory and
Joining Jackson on 'All Over You' are guitarist Mark Borgmeyer, bass
guitarist Dano Binz, drummer Rich Tabor and backing vocalist Rose Sexton.
Special guest Midnight, who worked with Jackson in Crimson Glory, contributes
backing vocals. Binz left the band after the album was completed. His
replacement is Fabrizio Fulco, a Crimson Glory fan who read about the
band's bass guitarist vacancy and moved to Florida from Rome, Italy,
to accept Jackson's invitation to join.
"The mood was electric while we recorded 'All Over You.' The creative
sparks were flying and the attitude and emotion are very evident in
the finished work," says Jackson. "With the release of 'All
Over You,' this feels like a fresh start for me and I have an amazing
band backing me on this project."
The 10 songs on 'All Over You' include "Turn It On," "Mean
Machine," "All Over You," "Falling Down," "Ghost
In The Mirror," "Eyes Of Ice," "Far And Away,"
"Heavy On My Mind," "Break It" and "Rock 'N'
"The record kicks ass from start to finish. I would have a hard
time choosing a favorite track as I love all the songs," Jackson
'All Over You' was recorded in Tampa, Florida, at Morrisound Studios,
owned by brothers Jim and Tom Morris. Crimson Glory and Parish recorded
their albums at Morrisound.
"The reason I formed my own band in the first place is so that
I could step up as the singer. When a singer leaves a band, I believe
the band loses something creatively and the fans are disappointed too.
After about four years of work, that's what happened with Parish. So
much relies on the singer I thought the best way to avoid that problem
was to become the singer!" Jackson says.
Jackson compares his musical role to that of Metallica's James Hetfield
and Megadeth's Dave Mustaine.
2001's 'Here I Come' was the first Ben Jackson Group album. Jackson
was pleased with the results, but he is much happier with 'All Over
"That first album was recorded as a power trio. It was really cool
and really raw, but I missed having another lead guitarist in the band
like it was in Crimson Glory. We're definitely a better band now, especially
with Mark and Rose on board," says Jackson.
" 'Here I Come' was kind of an experiment and I was a little unsure
of myself. 'All Over You' was not as nerve-wracking to make. Everything
just exploded. I was more confident and aggressive. I just envisioned
what I wanted to do."
"We are pumped over this new record and I believe the fans of my
work with Crimson Glory will love this one as well. For the Crimson
Glory fans who have been waiting a long time for someone in the band
to put out a record of this style and dynamic again, your wait is over!"
