Thrash metal powerhouse NERVOSA attacks with inexorable full femme power, leaving the world in Perpetual Chaos (out January 22, 2021 via Napalm Records). The newly staffed quartet showcases their ability for impetuously feral, pungently sharp riffs and aggressive vocals on 13 massive tracks. The new line up - featuring founding guitarist Prika Amaral and talented new members Diva Satanica on vocals, Mia Wallace on bass and Eleni Nota on drums - delivers a massive punch of thrash spliced with remarkable death metal assaults. The powerful new formation of NERVOSA adds a contemporary touch to this already thrashing institution of metal.
Since their formation in 2010 and leading up to their latest full-length surge, 2018's groundbreaking Downfall of Mankind, NERVOSA has delivered pure brute records in consistent intervals. Their fourth full-length, Perpetual Chaos, builds upon the turbulence - adding diverse musical elements to create an infallible new standout.
Guided by a marvelous force of uncompromising thrash and death metal, their raw power has its finger on the pulse of time: lyrically, the four piece does not hesitate to tackle issues that impact the very core of society as we know it. From political grievances and amplifying the voices of minorities to protesting against factory farming, capitalism and succumbing to the ill-informed musings of social elites - these commanding women do not mince words. Tracks like the airtight opener "Venomous", the fast-twitching "Until The Very End" and "Time To Fight" prove that NERVOSA's revitalized identity experiments with both fresh new elements and crucial auditory foundations without succumbing to any clichĂ©s. "Genocidal Command" perks ears with Diva Satanica's vocal eloquence, accented by the outstanding range of Schmier (DESTRUCTION) whilst mirroring a rousing thrash metal manifest.
On Perpetual Chaos, the four-piece once again joins forces with producer Martin Furia, recognized for producing Downfall of Mankind, in addition to working with EVIL INVADERS, SISTERS OF SUFFOCATION, etc. in studio, DESTRUCTION, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, etc. live and many more. A tremendous outcome awaits with brawl-brushed guitar lines, blisteringly fast drums and critical lyricism - striking the listener in a way only NERVOSA could. Viva Perpetual Chaos!

Recorded at Henson Studios and Trainwreck Studios, Ohms is an other-worldly body of work meticulously crafted by the 5 piece band. It is a magnificent tour de force and their first album in 4 years since the critically acclaimed Gore LP in 2016. The band, which includes Chino Moreno, Frank Delgado, Stephen Carpenter, Abe Cunningham, and Sergio Vega, has produced a dense LP with every member firing on all cylinders. The album also boasts a familiar collaborator in veteran producer and engineer Terry Date, who worked on 1995’s Adrenaline, 1997’s Around the Fur and 2000’s White Pony. All of the above assembles and sets the stage to deliver Ohms; 10 tracks of raw escapism and unparalleled grooves that have made Deftones' sound singular for over two decades.
2CD: S&M2, the live set from Metallica & The San Francisco Symphony is the concert event of the year! S&M2 features 20 songs (over 2.5 hours of music) from the two-night event that opened San Francisco’s new Chase Center, with many Metallica fan favorites and 2 unique classical songs chosen by San Francisco Symphony Musical Director Michael Tilson Thomas. S&M2 has newly re-mixed and remastered audio for a whole new sound from the original theatrical run in October 2019. The 2CD set includes two CDs and a 36-page booklet featuring photos from the show by Anton Corbijn.
Metallica and San Francisco Symphony’s September 6 & 8, 2019 S&M2 concerts were historic on multiple levels: They served as the grand opening of San Francisco’s Chase Center, reunited the band and Symphony for the first time since the 1999 performances captured on the Grammy-winning S&M album, and featured the first-ever symphonic renditions of songs written and released since those original S&M shows.
The sold out shows were rapturously received by the 40,000 fans who traveled from nearly 70 countries, as well as the media: Rolling Stone raved “the group proved that anything was possible,” Variety noted an atmosphere “buzzing with excitement,” while the Mercury News witnessed "a concert that fans will be talking about for decades to come,” and Consequence of Sound hailed "a true celebration of Metallica and their musical prowess.”
“Whoosh!” sees Deep Purple for the third time joining forces with producer Bob Ezrin, who invited the band to Nashville to write and record new songs. Together they created the most versatile album in their collaboration.
Deep Purple “stretched out in all directions” without any limitation, letting their creativity go. “Deep Purple is putting the Deep back into Purple” was the half-joking motto in the studio after the first songs made it clear that Ezrin and Purple were on their path to creating an album pushing the boundaries of time, while voicing their resentment about the current situation of the world and addressing all generations.
In recent years, Deep Purple has progressively moved into new areas, piquing the interest of fans who were not born when the mighty Purple machine ruled the music world. Their holy grail of “In Rock” (1970), “Machine Head” (1972) and “Made In Japan” (1973) catapulted Deep Purple to the top in concert grosses and album sales around the world, with tracks such as “Smoke On The Water” ascending them to mega-status.
The band’s 20th studio album “inFinite” has become one of their most successful albums ever, braking chart records accumulated by the hard rock legends over an impressive 50-year history.
With a debut record first released in 1998 Primal Fear has spent more than 20 years proving why they are the German Metal Commando. With over a dozen records under their belt Primal Fear are back on Nuclear Blast with their latest offering "Metal Commando", an album with merciless hooks, huge refrains and above all, strong songs that feature their trademark phalanx of three guitars and riffs too unerring to be resisted.
Three years after their initial debut, ME AND THAT MAN – Nergal’s dark folk/blues solo project – have returned with their sophomore release, New Man, New Songs, Same Shit Vol. 1, set to be released on March 27, 2020 via Napalm Records. Upon release, ME AND THAT MAN’s debut album, Songs of Love and Death, cast a spell on the world. Now, the mysterious collective has surpassed themselves with their bewitching new offer – consisting of menacing lyrics atop unfiltered blues, gothic-laced folk, outlaw country and Americana-influenced anthems. The enthralling album visits a completely new spectrum of dark desert vibes and sees notable heavy music icons such as Corey Taylor (Slipknot), Brent Hinds (Mastodon), Matt Heafy (Trivium) and Siver Hřyem (Madrugada) join the pact with the devil. Jřrgen Munkeby’s (Shining NO) distinctive vocals and saxophone contributions weave throughout the first single, “Run With The Devil”, a foot-stomping blues-rock anthem with an upbeat tempo and indelible hook. Songs like the outlaw-infused “Burning Churches”, featuring the raspy voice of Mat McNerney (Grave Pleasures), the gloomy, soulful “Surrender”, featuring Anders Landelius (Dead Soul), and the mournful country ballad “Confession”, performed with Niklas Kvarforth (Shining SE), make this standout album a surefire repeat listen. New Man, New Songs, Same Shit Vol. 1 is a diversified, dynamic masterpiece that presents Nergal in a completely new light, providing a strong contrast to the heavier sounds of Behemoth. Evil has truly never sounded so good.
2020 release.

On their 20th studio album, the band around frontman Chris Boltendahl continues their epic Highlands story. Fields of Blood is the logic consequence of a legendary trilogy and an auditory battle of unique traditional metal! Drifting riff masterpieces such as the stoic "All For The Kingdom", or the epic anthem "Lions Of The Sea", promise earworm and neck muscle training, while Fields Of Blood takes us into the vastness of Scotland on a journey through explosive sound landscapes. It's no surprise that the band even recorded parts of their new longplayer in the Scottish Highlands. As a very special highlight of the album, "Thousand Tears" features the incomparable voice of Noora of Battle Beast, refining the most touching metal ballad of the year in a duet with Boltendahl! Even 40 years later, Grave Digger still stay true to their no-frills traditional brand of metal with unwavering pure steel, which nevertheless offers surprises, and celebrates such a special anniversary of one of the most successful German heavy metal pioneers in the most glorious style!

Australia's Aversions Crown are back with their 4th full length album "Hell Will Come For Us All". Produced by Will Putney (Fit for an Autopsy, Thy Art is Murder etc), the band's new album separates them from the rest of the blackened deathcore genre with a technically onerous sound they have developed over the last decade
2020 release. It's evident within the initial seconds of Bpmd's American Made, as the legendary Bobby Blitz (Overkill) chants the introductory lyrics to Ted Nugent's "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" in his signature skyscraper-high howl, that he and his equally iconic bandmates - drummer Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs, Sons of Apollo), bassist Mark Menghi (Metal Allegiance) and guitarist Phil Demmel (Vio-lence, ex-Machine Head) - are here to have a damn good time. Featuring 10 unforgettable rock classics reimagined as heavy bangers, American Made is a party on wax. Tracks such as the raucous "Toys in the Attic" (Aerosmith) and rager-ready "Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers" (ZZ Top) prove that Bpmd not only manages to capture the essence of each original track on the album, but skillfully transforms each classic into an unforgettable metallic anthem for a new age. The seasoned quartet flex their musical muscles on renowned classics such as "Saturday Night Special" (Lynyrd Skynyrd), "We're an American Band" (Grand Funk) and "Walk Away" (James Gang), and introduce a whole new heavy generation to deeper cuts like blues standard "Evil" and "Never In My Life" (Mountain). Channeling nostalgia while maintaining a fresh attitude, American Made is a summer soundtrack for all ages!
Limited deluxe edition includes bonus tracks. 2020 release. For the better part of the past five years, top-charting masked metal machine Mushroomhead have been crafting the epic follow up to their monumental 2014 full-length album, The Righteous & The Butterfly - waiting patiently to drop their next collection of anthems. Mushroomhead make their prodigious return with A Wonderful Life, the Cleveland collective's eighth release of their benchmark career. The band shifts into high gear with introductory track "A Requiem For Tomorrow", beginning with an ominous Latin choral piece and juxtaposing heavy industrial-inspired grooves with melodic synths. Mushroomhead attacks track after track with a refreshed focus, delivering a carefully-curated selection of certified future hits. A Wonderful Life re-cements the band's position as one of the most consistently impactful heavy bands of our generation.
Polish death metal legends Vader have returned with their 16th studio album, Solitude in Madness. Never one to rest or relax, Vader have done it all over the course of their 37-year history. From playing super-aggressive thrash under the watchful eye of Communist Poland, signing a worldwide deal with popular UK indie Earache Records to touring the globe-after the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact in 1991, of course-and enjoying a near-maniacal fanbase, there's no stopping the Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek-led outfit. Proof of that lies in the exceptionally great Solitude in Madness, where speed and power are back as the driving factors in Vader's fiendish yet proficient death metal.
