There’s an exhausting amount of news to be had this week, so you better start early.

Iced Earth announced a North American tour with Sanctuary and Kill Ritual.

 

Cradle of Filth is going to tour the States with Jinjer

And Conan is going to tour the States with The Ditch And The Delta

The Crown signed with Metal Blade and is going to released a new 7″, unfortunately we could not procure the full thing so you’ll have to content yourself with this brief teaser.


The world is finally going to get rid of Manowar,but that ain’t stopping Boy-Joey. He’s to embark on a spoken word tour. Yes, really. Self described as a “a captivating one-man multimedia show”. About Manowar’s history from day one to present. It’s bound to be a brutally honest discussion and in no way dedicated to shining Joey’s knob at all. You’re definitely going to get all the juicy bits in the band’s history and going to hear an honest confession as to why Manowar is chasing Womanowar (self-described feminist Manowar tribute band) down for using a similar logo, and putting their live versions of Manowar song on Yotube. While at the same time hiring a drummer from a Manowar tribute band that does not describe itself as feminist for their final tour.
Or well, I guess that got answered just there. Anyways, if you’re interested – see info here

    What what? The Entity That Should No Longer Be Known As The Crown has a new singer? Unexpected.

    • Retchin’ Rites ov Karhu

      Far as I know, it’s still Lindstrand. Their best albums are pre-name change anyways. But the last really did suck ass.

      • Retchin’ Rites ov Karhu

        And 3 og members so…

      • Hans

        Indeed it is, and indeed it did. Oh well.

      • Lone Biker…

        Their drumming was always incredible…especially on Deathrace King anf Crowned in Terror…and then they replaced him with a drum machine. I bought it blind, saw that, and then said “I’m out”.

  • GoatForest

    Anybody else really dissapointed with the new Watain single?

    • Howard Dean

      I’m almost always disappointed with Watain. They have a few solid tracks dotting their albums (Casus Luciferi is a pretty good record, in particular), but they’ve otherwise been pretty meh to me. New single is no different.

      • GoatForest

        Fair. I’m just kinda in a weird place. They are one of the first black metal bands I got into.

        • GrumpDumpus

          NOSTALGIA CAN BE A NICE THING (HOW I LONG FOR THE DAYS OF MY FIRST COTTON GIN) BUT IN MY GRUMPY-ASS OPINION THAT ‘WEIRD PLACE’ YOU ARE IN WHERE WATAIN ISN’T INTERESTING IS CALLED ‘NORMAL REALITY’

          • GoatForest

            🙁 But, but STTD and LD were genuinely good…

          • GrumpDumpus

            ENJOY THOSE PAST MOMENTS AND ALLOW THE BAND TO FADE IN YOUR EYES…THERE IS NO GREATER WAY TO SPEED THE INEVITABLE BITTERNESS OF AGE THAN TO TRY TO FORCE YOURSELF INTO ENJOYING SOMETHING THAT NO LONGER HAS A SPARK

          • GoatForest

            Good advice.

    • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

      I’m not disappointed but not blown away either. They will never top Sworn To The Dark anyways

      • GoatForest

        Nope.

  • Retchin’ Rites ov Karhu

    Oh, and Bloodbath working on a new record.

    • Retchin’ Rites ov Karhu

      And D666 to release a MLP early 2018

  • Howard Dean

    In response to all of that Manowar shade being thrown this morning:

    • Hans

      Oh yeah. Haven’t seen him in a while.

      • Señor Jefe El Rossover

        I watch at least 5 times a week

        • Howard Dean

          I have a poster of this guy in my office at work.

    • Señor Jefe El Rossover
      • Howard Dean

        Hahahaha, perfect.

    • Simon PhoenixKing Rising

      I bet my next ration of rat burgers that spoken word tour is going to be a spectacular trainwreck though.

      If you want to see the glory of Manowar live but with reasonable prices and none of Demaio’s bullshit, just go see Ross the Boss’s solo band. They’re absolutely great. The current singer doesn’t sound anything like Eric Adams but still brings it live.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      Y’all think that’s bad? Their throwing of shade of Michael Schenker enrages me.

      • If you think that’s bad, humans are being sold into slavery all across the world and we’re rapidly making the entire planet inhospitable for life.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          I’m talking musically. I don’t even want to think about the future of America and the world. My future is sure looking bleak thanks to Trump.

          • GrumpDumpus

            WAIT WHAT’S A FUTURE IS THAT ONE OF THOSE TRICKLE-DOWN THINGIES I’M STILL WAITING TO GET

        • Howard Dean

          That’s all very true, but don’t let that distract you from the the fact that in 1966, Al Bundy scored four touchdowns in a single game while playing for the Polk High School Panthers in the 1966 city championship game versus Andrew Johnson High School, including the game-winning touchdown in the final seconds against his old nemesis, Bubba “Spare Tire” Dixon.

        • okay alex jones

    • Maik Beninton™
    • Dark Spirit of Cold Ural Mount

      Source, pls

      • Howard Dean

        I suggest watching the entire video (because it’s totally worth it), but if you are in a hurry, this dude comes on at 5:04.

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvE2aEMGclM

        • Dark Spirit of Cold Ural Mount

          Better than expected

  • Simon PhoenixKing Rising

    Why would you not put a link to any videos of Messiah performing with Procession? Why would you deny us that? WHY?

  • AndySynn

    Thoughts…

    Hooray, new Crown!

    Hooray, new Necrophobic!

    Hooray, that Kuolemanlaakso album is still fantastic!

    Boo, for Ronnie out of Grave!

    Wtf, Jinjer must have one hell of a management and marketing team, as their neutered brand of Nu-Metalcore has been showing up on a lot of big tours recently!

    • Retchin’ Rites ov Karhu

      Napalm is a helluva drug. Kinda liked their earlier albums though (Jinjer). Regarding their last – the ballad had cool basslines, is all the nice things I can say about it.

      • AndySynn

        I have, but I still think that “Tulijoutsen” remains their high point, and was one of my personal favourite albums of 2014.

        • Retchin’ Rites ov Karhu

          Might prefer “Joutsen” myself as well, but that’s a damn good trifecta right there.

    • Scrimm

      Share your opinions on Necrophobic and Grave

      • GoatForest

        I love Grave. I’m not really a very big fan of Necrophobic. If the new Naglar arrives, however, I may a have a joy induced seizure.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    I really liked that new Darkthrone record

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Michael Schenker is God. Don’t test me when it comes to my love of Michael Schenker.

    • Howard Dean

      I question your love of Michael Schenker.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        Michael Schenker is my favorite guitarist ever. His work with Michael Schenker Group and his band that is in the spam filter because I love them so much is beyond amazing.

  • Iron Tarkus

    Sadistik Forest wins song title of the fucking millennia.

  • tigeraid

    Iced Earth with SANCTUARY!? I’m IN.

  • No f u

  • Stu Block in IE is GROCE, will not see. I saw them at the Worcester Palladium (*farts*) during one of their Barlow-reunion stints (must’ve been around the release of Crucible of Man) and they were sort of iffy. The more I hear Schaffer say, the more I cringe and want to distance myself. Stormrider, Burnt Offerings, Something Wicked trilogy and Horror Show are still dank tho (a few good songs on Glorious Burden too, but Ripper is just a garbage fire of a human).

    • GrumpDumpus

      BURNT OFFERINGS (ALLIGATOR ALLIGATOR ALLIGATOR)

    • Retchin’ Rites ov Karhu

      Block is better than Bar-Rob-Lowe, but musically those albums have been lacking.
      Absolutely nothing Barlow’spresence would do to make the band better

  • Iron Tarkus

    Also, Satan’s Hallow decided to call it quits unfortunately. Their debut this year was fantastic. 3/4 of the band are forming a new band and have some stuff thrown together apparently so here’s to hoping it’s as good.

    • Retchin’ Rites ov Karhu

      That’s a definite bummer. Maybe 3/4 didn’t wanna work with guy who reportedly wrote and arranged everything to a tick.

      • Iron Tarkus

        I think their reasoning was he moved and they didn’t want to continue Satan’s Hallow without him.

        • Retchin’ Rites ov Karhu

          Ah, makes sense then. Would have been little point to do so, given all he was responsible form

  • You lucky dorks on the East coast are gonna get to see Despise You with Iron Reagan https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9600100ca389bf709b6988b938eb14065349374014692f57ab52fcf815b7691b.jpg
