BETRAYING THE MARTYRS Forced to Cancel Remaining North American Tour

BETRAYING THE MARTYRS has been forced to cancel the rest of their North American Summer “Rapture” tour, including last night’s show in Orangevale, CA, after being involved in a serious auto incident following their show in Los Angeles.

All crew and band members are safe.

The incident happened around 4 a.m. when the trailer portion of the band’s Mercedes Sprinter van caught fire. All band and crew members were able to safely to exit the vehicle with no major injuries. Tragically, all of the band’s equipment was lost in the blaze.

Singer Aaron Matts commented on the scene, “We’re all shaken by what has happened this morning. We’re well but very heartbroken that all we have worked hard to accumulate over the years, both in musical equipment and personal belongings, has been lost in a matter of minutes. I’m grateful that we have our health, each other and were able to walk away with the clothes on our backs. We are extremely sorry to have missed another opportunity to play for those that were looking forward to see us. We’ll bounce back and we’ll see you soon. Thank you.

Guitarist Baptiste Vigier also added: “This is the most tragic event that has ever happened in our band’s career, and in my entire life. Earlier this morning, I was awakened by our driver screaming and urging us all to get out of the vehicle. Although I’m incredibly thankful to still be alive and tell this story, I lost all my gear and personal belongings. We feel incredibly powerless and in shock.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help the BETRAYING THE MARTYRS replace the items lost in the fire. Visit here to donate.

ANY donation will be incredibly helpful to all of us and will go directly towards rebuilding our band, to help us get back home and ultimately to keep doing what we love, which is creating music and sharing it with our fans,” the band says. “If you’ve ever had the chance to catch BTM live, if you know the band or simply follow what we do, if you’ve shared the stage with us, if you’ve ever listened to or streamed our music, we’re asking for your help.

The band also adds, “There is absolutely no way we could thank enough, our driver and new best friend Daniel Johnson. This man literally ran into the flames in an attempt to salvage our belongings and to ensure our safety and well-being. Daniel acted out of pure courage and professionalism in order for the band and crew to be safe and at a lower risk of injury. Whatever we have left after this, we owe it to you Daniel. A part of potential funds raised will be going to Daniel to compensate for his courage and for his belongings lost.

Band manager Chris Adler of Kinsugi Management posted the following video of the fire.

Below is a list of items that were lost:
– Splitter
– In Ears Monitors System x 4
– Most of our Merchandising
– 1 Furman power conditioner
– 4 keyboards
– Shock mount racks units
– 1 Helix
– 1 AxeFX
– 6 guitar cases
– All personal belongings and suitcases
– A full Midas Mixing Desk and its case
– A full drum kit
– The whole brand new trailer

The tour will continue with Within Destruction and Sentinels. “We encourage you to come support our tour brothers that we must unfortunately leave,” says the band. “Show them some love too.”

ALIEN WEAPONRY Return To North America This Fall

New Zealand metal outfit ALIEN WEAPONRY have announced their next run of dates in the US and Canada. The band will join forces with legendary metal bands Black Label Society and The Black Dahlia Murder for a month long tour this Fall. The trek kicks off September 11th in Ventura, CA and concludes on October 12th at the inaugural “Exit 111 Festival” in Manchester, TN. A complete list of dates is below. Following those dates, the band has scheduled a string of headline dates. They start October 13th in Kansas City, MO and runs through October 26th in Seattle, WA.

Earlier this summer, ALIEN WEAPONRY was featured in an on-camera interview with CNN. The conversation took place during their most recent tour of North America and focused on their success in bringing “Maori Metal” to the masses and what it was like to form the band at such a young age. You can watch their interview on CNN.com right here.

Later this week be on the lookout for the exclusive video premiere of the band’s new singled “Blinded.” Watch a teaser for the video here.

“The song has very personal meaning for me (Lewis), but we wanted the video to leave things more open, so people can interpret it their own way. Piotr and Dwayne have really captured the notion of altered realities that we were going for, and we hope people will find their own messages in the images and the music,” says Lewis de Jong.

*Festival

ALIEN WEAPONRY was formed in 2010 by brothers Lewis (vocals & guitar) and Henry de Jong (drums), who were 8 and 10 years old at the time. The two would later move to the small town of Waipu in 2012, and went on to meet Ethan Trembath (bass) there in 2013. The de Jong brothers came up with the name ALIEN WEAPONRY after watching the film District 9.

Both Lewis and Henry are of Ngati Pikiāo and Ngati Raukawa (Māori tribal) descent, and began their schooling at a kura kaupapa Māori (full immersion Māori language school) where singing waiata (songs) and performing haka were a daily routine. Also ingrained in their early education were stories of New Zealand history told to them by their father, who would also introduce them to the music of Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Anthrax, Ministry, Red Hot Chili Peppers and many others.

Fans and music critics alike have applauded the band’s approach to unifying Te Reo Māori (the native language of New Zealand) with thrash metal sensibilities; ultimately creating a sound that is driven by emotionally and politically charged conflict while boasting youthful, warrior-like resilience.

GWAR Announces Unveiling of Memorial Marker for Dave Brockie

At 2:00 PM on Friday, August 30th, 2019, GWAR will unveil a monument to the band’s co-founder and longtime leader Dave Brockie, which will be set in Richmond, Virginia’s famed Hollywood Cemetery (412 S Cherry St, Richmond, VA). All are invited to the unveiling, and to a free party the next day, August 31st, at the GWARbar (217 W Clay St, Richmond, VA).

The party will feature a performance by RAWG, the greatest GWAR tribute band of all time. Friday, August 30th marks what would have been Dave Brockie‘s 56th birthday. The erection of this monument has been a long time coming, and we are grateful and happy we can finally do this for Dave.

“We thank the many people who donated time and money to make this a reality. We hope the marker will provide a long-needed place for Brockie‘s friends, family, and fans to pay their respects to this wonderful and deeply talented human being, and of course, to Dave’s famous creation; Oderus Urungus, who will always be remembered as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and roll history. “

DAMN YOUR EYES Reveals Mini Studio Documentary

New York-based heavy metal band DAMN YOUR EYES recently announced the release of their upcoming debut full-length album, Kill The Outside, out via digital retailers everywhere on August 2, 2019. The album will be available in physical CD and vinyl formats upon release date. Digital pre-orders are available now via iTunes and Apple Music.

Following up on last week’s release of their headbang-inducing “Ascension” music videoDAMN YOUR EYES revealed more new content this week in the form of a mini studio documentary featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes footage. The video acts as a window into the band’s commencement, about to blossom, resting on the edge of a bright future. As with the “Ascension” video, the mini documentary was directed by Tom Flynn. Watch here.

In the video, producer John Iadevaio says about working on Kill The Outside“I really was trying to capture as much as I could… I was trying to keep it a little more raw. A lot of the production was done with [the band] playing live… we didn’t sit there punching every little drum fill.”

Drummer Rick Taiano mentions, “When it comes to making music, we’re all pointed in the same direction, and that’s why we all believe in the project and we all think there’s something special here.”

DAMN YOUR EYES may seem new to the scene, but they are anything but green. The band – formed by former members of We Are The Enemy and Bonesmith, plus a current member of Black Water Rising – came together in 2015 and immediately hit the ground running. As respected musicians in their local scene with extensive recording experience, the band quickly recorded an EP, released it to local acclaim, and rapidly returned to the studio to record Kill The Outside.

 
DAMN YOUR EYES isn’t about clickbait or gimmicky metal. The band performs pure American heavy music – blending influences of 90’s heavy metal with grunge, stoner metal and sludge to create a potent mixture of candid aggression. Decibel Magazine says it best: “…DAMN YOUR EYES‘ style is straight ahead American metal, with nods to everyone from Down to Alice in Chains and Phil Demmel-era (read: good) Machine Head.”

Kill The Outside showcases a mixture of styles, making for a truly dynamic and emotive collection of tracks. In addition to the metal radio-ready “Ascension”, mellow head-bobbers like “Burn” echo grunge and stoner metal influences, while standout track “Low Road” kicks off with a Type O Negative-esque intro riff before quickly transitioning to full-on antagonistic southern groove metal. Slow and low, grooving “Dirty Viper” tells the intense and personal story of a friend who committed suicide by heroin overdose. Tracks like “Punk Fuck” kick it up a notch, while another standout track, the heartfelt “Slower”, brings the tempo down while telling the opposite story of “Dirty Viper” – an uplifting tale of wonderful results after making the decision to change oneself.

Guitarist Artie Alexander says, “In the bed of all of these songs lies personal experiences. Experiences that every person on this planet can identify with, having either lived through them themselves or watched someone they love go through them. The album is about being human and the images seen through our eyes. Moments of anger, frustration, sorrow, loss, redemption, hope, recovery, revenge, survival and healing.”

Kill The Outside Track Listing:
1) Ascension
2) Burn
3) Dirty Viper
4) Lions from Lambs
5) Low Road
6) Punk Fuck
7) Slower
8) These Are the Things
9) Through it All
10) Tree Line

Kill The Outside was recorded at Front Row Recording and produced by John Iadevaio. The album was mastered by Dan Malsch at Soundmine Recording.

 
DAMN YOUR EYES is sought after by Long Island and New York City area promoters and venues because of their energetic live performances! Catch DAMN YOUR EYES performing at two shows coming up – July 20 in Amityville, NY at Revolution, and August 27 in Elmhurst, NY at Blackthorn 51 with Crowbar.

BLOODY HAMMERS Release Official Video For “Let Sleeping Corpses Lie”

Two weeks before The Summoning will be unleashed, BLOODY HAMMERS release the third single and video “Let Sleeping Corpses Lie” from the new studio album. The Transylvania County based duo centered around mastermind Anders Manga draws the listener and viewer once again in a sinister and dark surrounding, that no band can evoke better in 2019 than BLOODY HAMMERS and their very own “Bloody Hammers Film Production”! Manga proves once more that he is the master of darkness!

Anders Manga on the video and the song: “’Let Sleeping Corpses Lie’ was the first song I wrote for what has become The Summoning album. I really liked the song so it inspired all the rest of the material. We had fun with the video and clearly reflects our love of classic British horror.”

Watch “Let Sleeping Corpses Lie” HERE.

BLOODY HAMMERS deliver their fifth studio album entitled The Summoning on June 26th 2019 via Napalm Records!

The U.S. duo has prepared a wonderfully creepy horror musical experience that pays homage to classic flicks such as “Let Sleeping Corpses Lie” (1974) and “Now The Screaming Starts” (1973). BLOODY HAMMERS’ idea of a soundtrack for your favorite video nasties holds some surprises on their upcoming record.

Pre-Order The Summoning HERE.

The Summoning Track Listing:
1. Let Sleeping Corpses Lie
2. Now the Screaming Starts
3. The Summoning
4. Fire In The Dark
5. The Beast Is Coming Out
6. Welcome to Darkness
7. Tales That Witness Madness
8. Condemned, The Prisoner
9. From Beyond The Grave
10. Unbreakable

The Summoning will be available in the following formats:
-4 page Digipack
-1 LP Gatefold
-2LP Gatefold (purple) – Napalm Records mail order exclusive, strictly limited to 200 units
-Digital Album

Frontman Anders Manga infused the new album tracks with epic metal and hard rock nuances. But don’t fret, the lumbering doom riffs deliver massive doses of goth rock, and Devallia’s psychedelic keyboards are present ever-still, and turn their latest effort The Summoning into a well-balanced, lush and highly infectious affair.

DVNE Sign With RidingEasy Records

Edinburgh, Scotland quintet DVNE have signed to L.A. purveyors of heavy, RidingEasy Records for worldwide release of future recordings.

The band also returns to the US this summer to perform at the hugely popular Psycho Las Vegas festival on August 17th.

DVNE (pronounced dune) is a 5 piece progressive rock/metal band from Edinburgh Scotland. Founded in 2013, the band was then called Dune in reference to Frank Herbert sci-fi masterpiece of the same name.

The band consists of Victor Vicart (guitar, vocals, keys), Dudley Tait (drums), Daniel Barter (guitar, vocals), Jack Kavanagh (bass) and Richard Matheson (keys).

To date, the band has released one studio album and two EPs. They emerged within the UK scene with their first EP Progenitor (2013), shortly followed by a second EP, Aurora Majesty (2014). At their releases, both EPs received very favourable receptions, with reviewers calling their releases “Progressive metal at its best” says This Is Not A Scene from the US, “Stunning and majestic” says Nine Hertz from the UK, and “breathtaking debut release” says The Sludgelord from the UK.

Dvne quickly began to make a name for themselves in the UK and around Europe, with various tours over these territories and support shows of households names such as Eyehategod, Crowbar, Dragged Into Sunlight to name a few. The band’s sound at the time was already crossing over various music style including post-metal, progressive rock and sludge metal, but it is with their first full-length album Asheran that the band established further their unique blend of heavy music.

Released in August 2017, on double-disc vinyl, CD and digital, Asheran was overwhelmingly praised by the press; “their best album to date […] sublime Dvne past releases” says La Planete Du Stoner Rock from France, and  “boundary-pushing songs” says Metal Hammer. The album was listed on many best albums of the year lists such as Echoes and Dust naming Asheran best release of that year.

Since Asheran‘s release, Dvne has toured all over the UK, Europe and North America and appeared at prestigious festivals such as Psycho Las Vegas, Desertfest London and Inferno Festival Norway to name a few.

Not content to repeat their previous releases and always looking to push their sound forward DVNE are about to enter Chamber Studio in Edinburgh this summer to record their 2nd full-length concept album, planned for release on RidingEasy in late 2019.

DVNE LIVE:
08/17 Las Vegas, NV @ Psycho Las Vegas

 

DAVE MUSTAINE Announces He Has Throat Cancer

Just as we are all getting our weeks rockin and figuring out our summer concert schedule the world of rock and metal is rocked as Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has announced via his Instagram account that he’s been diagnosed with throat cancer.

View this post on Instagram

I’ve been diagnosed with throat cancer. It’s clearly something to be respected and faced head on – but I’ve faced obstacles before. I’m working closely with my doctors, and we’ve mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate. Treatment has already begun. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Unfortunately, this requires that we cancel most shows this year. The 2019 Megacruise will happen, and the band will be a part of it in some form. All up to date information will be at megadeth.com as we get it. Megadeth will be back on the road ASAP. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Meanwhile, Kiko, David, Dirk and I are in the studio, working on the follow up to Dystopia – which I can’t wait for everyone to hear. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m so thankful for my whole team – family, doctors, band members, trainers, and more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ll keep everyone posted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ See you soon, Dave Mustaine

A post shared by Dave Mustaine (@davemustaine) on

Dave Mustaine has always been a fighter and determined to continue on so there’s no doubt that he’ll be ready to go full steam after Megadeth finishes their next studio album.
