WHITECHAPEL

Bio:
Whitechapel"The theme of 'Mark of the Blade' is a celebration of Whitechapel being together for ten years and the fans that support us no matter what," states vocalist Phil Bozeman, and after just one exposure to the record's 11 riveting tracks, a more fitting tribute is unimaginable. Pushing their sound forward with each successive release, the sextet have never allowed anyone outside of their ranks to dictate for influence the music they write. Mark of the Blade sees them remain true to their roots while making their most dramatic progression to date, the emphasis falling more on groove than blastbeatdriven death metal violence, as well as venturing into previously unexplored territory, both sonically and lyrically. "It's the most dynamic record we've done, in the sense that one song can be very aggressive while the next one will be softer and sentimental," guitarist Alex Wade asserts. "I think it's great that we have opened up our sound to just write and play whatever we think sounds good. If it's soft and has clean singing who cares as long as it's a good song? I would rather do that than be closed-minded and stick to only the 'extreme' side of metal."
With five genre-redefining albums to their name, the Knoxville, Tennessee natives have carved themselves a unique niche in contemporary metal, and in doing so have spoken to legions of fans. Making their presence known with 2007's The Somatic Defilement, their profile has steadily grown, and 2014's Our Endless War saw them crack the top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 for the first time. Their reputation for maintaining their integrity is well-earned, and going into their sixth full-length this commitment is stronger than ever. "I honestly don't think that we ever have to prove anything to anyone, we do this because we enjoy it, and if people want to listen and support us, that's just a bonus," says Bozeman. "With this record we knew what we didn't want to do. We wanted to get away from the faster stuff, because we're burned out on that 260bpm blastbeat thing. We've done that. Ultimately none of us agree with genre pigeon-holing, and we're not afraid to write what we want to write, no matter what anyone else thinks." While the band had clear ideas for elements they wanted to explore, they did not allow this to dictate the record, which developed more naturally, focusing on what was best for the individual songs, refusing to accept anything less than the absolute best they could possibly do. "Nothing was set in concrete when we started writing, and we did not force anything," Wade states. "For example, the idea of including some clean singing was brought up before any songs were written, but it was never really like 'okay, we're doing this' until the songs that we planned to have that on were complete and Phil could say 'so I'm clean singing on these, right?'. At that moment it felt exciting that we were exploring musical territory that we hadn't before, and that we were confident in doing so." In realizing the album, the band - rounded out by guitarists Ben Savage and Zach Householder, bassist Gabe Crisp and drummer Ben Harclerode - reunited with producer Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Cannibal Corpse). "When it comes to recording we have the 'if it's not broke, don't fix it' mentality, and he really does find ways to make us sound better with each record. From 'Whitechapel' (2012) to 'Our Endless War', there really was a large step forward in terms of the production and tones, and I feel that is also the case with the progression from 'Our Endless War' to 'Mark of the Blade'. This is the biggest we have ever sounded on a record, and it's great to see his growth as a producer matched with our growth as musicians."
Kicking off with "The Void", which taps into a Slayer-style aggressive thrash vibe that is perfectly suited to the band's three-guitar attack, the songs that follow all leave a distinct impression, and by the time the rich, dark melodies of the epic "Decennium" bring things to a close, it's impossible to deny the emotional weight brought to bear. However, equally inescapable is the fact that the majority of said emotion is profoundly positive, leaving a lasting sense of hope and community, and it is this that inspired the album's title. "It always blows our minds when we see fans get our Tennessee saw-blade symbol tattooed on them, and we are grateful to those diehard fans who show such dedication to what we do," states Wade. "When we were thinking of possible titles, Phil suggested 'Mark Of The Blade', and the theme being the fans and how they would bear the mark for us. I feel it also stands for the figurative 'mark' that we attempt to leave with this record." While this theme is strong, Bozeman typically tackles a broad range of issues, always laying himself bare and speaking from the heart. "It was time to show that we are human and also want to be happy, and that metal doesn't have to be 'blah, blah, blah I hate the world' all the time. 'The Void' is about our music being a black hole that people can escape into, which can alleviate their problems, while the title track is about me taking a chance and committing to the band rather than staying home in a dead end job, at the same time helping me to move on from the past and look toward a better future." On "Elitist Ones" Bozeman vents his frustrations at metal fans who believe their taste superior to that of others, as well as learning to move past hate, and he also touches on far more emotionally fragile territory, with "Bring Me Home". "My father passed when I was ten years old, and it's me reflecting on those first ten years of my life. It's a very depressing and sad song but it's also a part of me grieving in a way I never did, because I was too young to comprehend what was even going on." However, it is aforementioned closer "Decennium" that most fully embodies the love that they have for their fans, and determinedly finishes things on an optimistic note. "That song is really going to give people hope and a positive attitude instead of being pissed off at the world all the time. Don't get me wrong, the world definitely pisses me off and people piss me off, but in life there's always positive things to look forward to, and people would rather be happy than sad, more often than not."
With Mark of the Blade under their collective belt, the band is truly stepping into a new and exciting phase of their career. Having redefined who they are and what they are capable of, their place in the modern metal landscape has only solidified - and while they remain typically confident they are equally humble. "This record plainly states 'this is who we are'," Wade asserts. "We know we have fans that depend on us just as we depend on them, and this record displays that deep connection. In the end, that's what it's all about."

COMBICHRIST

Bio:
CombichristElectro-industrial metal leaders COMBICHRIST are thrilled to announce more details regarding their upcoming ninth full-length album, One Fire, scheduled for release on June 7, 2019 via Out Of Line Music. In addition to revealing the album’s release date, the band has leaked their new album art, illustrated by Deka Sepdian.
COMBICHRIST mastermind Andy LePlegua says about working with Deka Sepdian, “I worked with Deka for my clothing line, “Deathrod”, in the past, and he always does amazing work. I basically told him to make something chaotic that could just as well represent end of days as much as the chaos inside our heads. He did a killer job! Can’t wait to see this on a vinyl sleeve.”
One Fire pre-orders and music are coming very soon!
In the meantime, COMBICHRIST have added even more dates to their “One Fire World Tour”, now visiting the UK and Europe! The North American portion of the tour begins April 8 in San Diego, and will tour for two months, coming to an end on June 2in Indianapolis, IN. Then, not even a month later, COMBICHRIST will continue their international onslaught in the UK and Europe, starting in Dessel, BE on June 21. They will tour for nearly another two months, wrapping up on August 11 in Hildesheim-Drispenstedt, DE.

TERROLOKAUST

Bio:
TerrolokaustRenowned for the passion and quality of their live performances, leading Spanish alternative act TERROLOKAUST exemplify powerful programming, expressive and versatile vocals, and an explicit understanding of how to successfully hybridize rock and electronica.
Mixed and co-produced by Andy LaPlegua (COMBICHRIST/ICON OF COIL) and mastered by Krischan Wesenberg (ROTERSAND/FUTURE LIED TO US), expectation is already sky-high for the band’s long-awaited fifth album “The Chasm” – which comes out on DWA this May…
The Barcelona-based duo of Javi (vocals) and Indio (programming/guitar) plus live guitarist Aury and drummer Angel are now confirmed as one of the opening acts for the European leg of COMBICHRIST’s “One Fire” world tour – performing tracks from “The Chasm” for the first time, prior to the band’s biggest show so far at the famed M’era Luna festival in Germany this August.
Lauded by the likes of GRENDEL, NACHTMAHR, SOMAN and REAPER on its release, TERROLOKAUST’s 2011 album for DWA “God Loves The Violence” justifiably generated rave reviews and catapulted the band to prominence in the electro-industrial scene - while seeing them subsequently appear live at Wave Gotik Treffen, Summer Darkness, Vampire Party Live and Revolution in Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, The UK, Greece and Spain.
2013’s follow-up “Spit The Poison Out” spent 8 consecutive weeks in the Top Ten Albums of the Deutsche Alternative Charts, peaking at #3, and was also the band’s first US release. It also led to the band’s first vinyl in the shape of the 7” and 12” singles “The Way It Must Be” and “Scars That Never Heal”. Slowly but surely, TERROLOKAUST started to become a fixture on the German festival circuit, and played their first major European tour – spending 3 weeks on the road opening for AESTHETIC PERFECTION/FADERHEAD - and another week in the UK with ICON OF COIL.
In 2016, TERROLOKAUST’s 4th album “Dissensions” resulted in a first ever #1 album for both band and label on the Deutsche Alternative Charts – amidst a steady stream of festival appearances around Europe including Lumous (Finland), Autumn Moon (Germany), Resistanz (UK) and a range of clubs in London (with SITD), Moscow (with NOISUF-X), Switzerland and of course Spain.
Topping a #1 is a tall order for any artist. Seeking to create something that would sound slightly different from their previous albums, for “The Chasm” the band tapped longtime friend and fan Andy LaPlegua to lend his production chops to the record. For someone as busy as the singer of COMBICHRIST, finding time to get this done was always destined to take a while – but the powerful end product speaks for itself. Given a finishing touch at the audio mastering stage by another longtime friend Krischan Wesenberg, the resulting sonic depth of “The Chasm” is destined and designed to swallow you whole.

QUEENSRŸCHE

Bio:
QueensrÿcheQueensrÿche first burst onto the music scene in 1982 with the release of their self-titled 4 song EP Queensrÿche. They very quickly gained international recognition and performed to sold out audiences around the world. With the follow up first full length album "The Warning" in 1984, and the ground breaking 1986 release of "Rage For Order", Queensrÿche continued to prove their worldwide dominance as one of the most respected and creative bands of the 80's. In 1988 the band turned out yet another monumental album"Operation:Mindcrime", which would go on to become one of the TOP 10 best selling concepts records of all time, and set the stage for continued sold out performances around the world. With the release of the critically acclaimed and commercially successful "Empire" in 1991, the band earned multiple Grammy Award nominations and won the MTV "viewers choice" award for the #1 chart topping hit "Silent Lucidity". During the next ten years, the band continued to release albums and tour the world to sold out audiences. Queensrÿche has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and have continued to break new ground and push their creative process.
The band’s name is uttered in the same breath as many of the groups they looked to as influences and others who arose as peers. Queensrÿche built a dedicated legion of fans traveling the globe on tour with fellow rock giants like Iron Maiden, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Judas Priest, and Def Leppard. In recent years, they’ve consistently delivered high-octane live shows combining the hungry fire of a new band with the tempered experience of master showmen. Even with eleven gold and platinum plaques and several Top 10 hard rock anthems woven into the very fiber of the genre, Queensrÿche won’t relent. In fact, they’re in the throes of a jaw-dropping creative resurgence.

FIREWIND

Bio:
FirewindTime to wake the sleeping giant...
It’s been about five years since Greek melodic Power Metallers FIREWIND released their critically acclaimed seventh album “Few Against Many” (2012), but in the meantime the band and its individual members have all been extremely busy with various activities. Main man and guitarist Gus G. has released not one, but two solo albums, toured worldwide in support of both of them and hit the road once again with the ‘Prince of Darkness’, Ozzy Osbourne, whose band member he has been since 2009. His fellow FIREWIND band mates have also been far from idle too, but despite the prolonged break in activities, FIREWIND was always going to return… strong and blasting on all cylinders!
After already returning to the international live-circuit already throughout the last months, January 20th, 2017 will see FIREWIND release their newest studio album entitled “Immortals”, which returns to the infectiously catchy and highly anthemic origins of the group. Throughout the 10 new tracks on the record, FIREWIND sound fresher and more determined than ever before, showcasing not only a high quality level of individual instrumental skills, but also a tasteful and matured song writing ability, making the 44 minutes playing time of the album an energetic rollercoaster between the realms of traditional Heavy Metal, epic Hardrock influences as well extremely melodic Power/Speed Metal craft.
“The songs were written in a much slower pace this time, as it's the longest break we ever took between albums. So we took our time writing this and concentrated on keeping ideas that were really strong”, says Gus G. Another noteworthy element to “Immortals” is that this album marks the first time FIREWIND used an outside co-producer, working with Dennis Ward (Unisonic, Pink Cream 69), who not only engineered, mixed and mastered the album, but also co-wrote it together with Gus G.
“Immortals” also once again features a new FIREWIND frontman, even though not at all stranger to the band and their followers: Henning Basse (ex Metalium, Sons Of Seasons) already performed across the world with FIREWIND back in 2007 on the “Allegiance” tour and has been a close friend and collaborator of the band, as well the most recent vocalist for Gus G.’s solo touring band. His rich, classic rock referencing vocals are the perfect foil for the wealth of material the band have been working on and he brings a reinvigorated power to the fold.
Conceptually packaged with suitable artwork courtesy of longtime visual partner Gustavo Sazes, the lyrical theme for “Immortals” is explained by Gus G. as follows: “This is our first concept album and it has to do with ancient Greek history and more specifically the Battles of Thermopylae and Salamis in 480 BC during the second Persian invasion of Greece. In Thermopylae, The vastly outnumbered Greeks held off the Persians for seven days (including three of battle) before the rear-guard was annihilated in one of history's most famous last stands”.
Upon release of “Immortals”, FIREWIND will strike back with further live activity, as they first embark on a headline tour of Europe & UK in February 2017 and then are set to follow up with several summer festival appearances, which are already being confirmed and soon to be announced...

Oktobra, ko so dnevi res vse krajši, ko se tudi zdi, da so temnejši, bolj megleni, mrki - oktobra bosta v Ljubljani nastopila dva odlična mračna benda. To sta turški She Past Away in hrvaški Phantasmagoria.
She Past Away je turška post punk/dark wave zasedba, ki je aktivna od leta 2006. Gre za duet iz Burse, ki odlično prepleta post punk, dark wave in gothic rock, do zdaj pa sta izdala dva albuma in en EP.
Phantasmagoria je kultna hrvaška gothic rock zasedba, ki je nastala na pogorišču zasedbe Eksodus. Na sceni je več kot 30 let, v tem času pa je s svojimi koncerti in albumi uspešno vlekla vzporednice z bendi, kot so Fields of the Nephilim, Sisters Of Mercy, Killing Joke, Joy Division ipd.
Ako vam duša uživa v mračnih melodijah, potem si rezervirajte petek, 4. 10. 2019. Kraj dogodka je seveda Orto Bar v Ljubljani, po koncertu pa zabavo do jutranjih ur obljubljajo 80s Crew s posebnim DJ programom Dark side of the 80s.


SHE PAST AWAY

Bio:
She Past AwayShe Past Away is dark-wave with a reworked 80's sound. Signature guitar sound of the post-punk era, combined with minimalist poetry in Turkish.
Band's foundations date back to 2006 when Volkan was drafting songs even before the band was named. In 2009 the band came to a formation and recorded the debut EP "Kasvetli Kutlama", which was released in digital in 2010. "Belirdi Gece" LP was released in 2012, followed by "Narin Yalnızlık" LP in 2015.

PHANTASMAGORIA

Bio:
PhantasmagoriaPhantasmagoria chose a way through music with an idea of creating something different in the post punk sunset of Zagreb at the end of eighties. Inspiration for the name was found at the same titled The Damned album, but it also reminds about apparent fiction of universal truth. Phantasmagoria used the pentagram as its symbol, as a symbol of the perfect man and a balance between material and spiritual. Marked as a dark and controversial band and often compared with the some of the biggest names of the genre, such as The Sisters Of Mercy, Killing Joke, The Fields Of The Nephilim,......, Phantasmagoria soon earned the cult status in Croatian underground sczene. First single "Alex" (1988.) went straight to No. 1 indie-charts position which was followed by the press responses in the favour of the band. The following singles "Poziv U Raj" and "Ja Gledam Svojim Ocima" (1989.) repeated that success. Phantasmagoria 1990. earned the title of a best new alternative band by music press. The first Phantasmagoria’s video-clip for the song "Better World" (1991.) came straight to No. 1 on national television chart and next one. Video for the song "Isolated" (1992.), was chosen as one of 10 the best video-clips in Croatia for the year 1993. However, band's cult status also resulted with bad publicity within the local Catholic Church, which escalated to the constant assaults from local Church newspapers and even with ripping off the band's posters from the walls because of the pentagram usage as a symbol of the band and reffering to the philosophy of Aleister Crowley. Although the war in Croatia seriously damaged their career, Phantasmagoria never gave up playing live, in war-zones and at many anti-war festivals. Phantasmagoria has twice performed at the famous festival "Wave Gotik Treffen" in Leipzig, Germany, played on "Dark Nation Day" festival in Vienna, "Metal Camp" in Slovenia, "Viva La Pola!" festival in Pula, Croatia, "Exit" in Serbia, a headliner tour in Czech Republic and Slovakia, supported and play with many great acts like The Young Gods, Mizar, Let 3, New Model Army, Iggy Pop, Borghesia, Christian Death, Kismet, Clan Of Xymox, Theatres Des Vampires, Diva Destruction, Moriis, In Extremo, Charon, Deathstars, Type O Negative, The 69 Eyes, The Mission, Paradise Lost, Love Amongs Ruin, Moonspell, ... 93!

Oktobrska kitarska poslastica
Kitaristi, tokrat vam bo veselje zaplesalo ob misli na oktober, kajti v Ljubljani se bo ustavil eden in edini Paul Gilbert!
Glasbenik ameriškega rodu, rojen leta 1966, je svetu najbolj znan kot soustanovitelj zasedbe Mr. Big, ki smo jo v Kinu Šiška videli avgusta lani, sodeloval pa je z imeni, kot so Racer X, Black Sheep, G3, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, Yellow Matter Custard, The Electric Fence, stOrk. Njegov glasbeni ''pedigre'' je nesporen, prav tako njegov talent. In to je dokazal tudi z najnovejšim albumom, že 17. albumom I Can Destroy, ki je izšel 27. maja letos in ki ga bo v Ljubljani predstavil že omenjenega 7. oktobra 2019. Na albumu sta sodelovala tudi svetovno znani bobnar Thomas Lang ter prav tako nič manj znani basist Kevin Chown.
Kdo bo z njim nastopal v živo, še ni znano, jasno pa je, da bodo to res priznana imena. In če ste kakorkoli povezani s kitaro ali pa ste le fan res dobre glasbe, potem si nujno zapišite 7. oktober kot dan, ki si ga boste rezervirali zgolj za Paula Gilberta!
Vstopnice so že na voljo!


PAUL GILBERT

Bio:
Paul GilbertA virtuosic American heavy metal and hard rock guitarist, Paul Gilbert is best known as the ace shredder and co-founder of Mr. Big, and as a member of Los Angeles-based metallers Racer X. He launched a solo career in 1996, and has since issued a slew of acclaimed albums like Alligator Farm (2000), Silence Followed by a Deafening Roar (2008), Vibrato (2012), and Behold Electric Guitar (2019). He has also collaborated with fellow six-string wizards Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, and Steve Vai.
Born November 6, 1966, in Carbondale, Illinois, and raised primarily in Greenburg, Pennsylvania, Gilbert began playing music at age five, and by age 15 was not only touring local clubs with his band Tau Zero but was even spotlighted in Guitar Player magazine alongside fellow up-and-comer Yngwie Malmsteen. In 1984, Gilbert relocated to Los Angeles to attend the Guitar Institute of Technology, becoming an instructor there the following year; concurrently, he formed the band Electric Fence, which by 1986 evolved into Racer X. Their debut album, Street Lethal, appeared later that year, but in the wake of the follow-up, 1987's Second Heat, Gilbert exited to join Mr. Big, which in 1992 topped the pop charts with the ballad "To Be with You."
Mr. Big disbanded in 1996, and a year later Gilbert made his solo debut with King of Clubs. He also re-formed Racer X, who had enormous success in Japan with the 1999 LP Technical Difficulties and 2000's Superheroes. The ensuing years saw Gilbert continuing to release solo albums while recording and touring with Racer X, and in 2011 he teamed back up with Mr. Big and released the album What If. The following year, Gilbert issued his 12th solo outing, Vibrato, followed by the 2014 covers LP Stone Pushing Uphill Man. I Can Destroy was issued in 2016, with Behold Electric Guitar arriving in 2019.

Vroč oktobrski večer
Jesen je čas za romantiko, za skupno druženje pod toplim kovtrom, poslušanje nežnih melodij in vroče užitke nasploh.
Več ali manj vse to pa boste dobili zgolj z enim samim koncetom, ki se bo oktobra zgodil v Orto Baru v Ljubljani. Tam se bodo namreč ustavili švedski Crashdiet. 10. oktober - dve desetki! - bo večer čiste desetke: vroče teme, vroče melodije, vroči teksti, vroč bend. Crashdiet so švedski odgovor na vse tiste bende, ki so se proslavili v ZDA na Sunset Stripu. Gre za sleaze rock bend, aktivni so od leta 2005, do zdaj pa so izdali vsaj 4 albume. Možje, katerih koncerti so nevarni za vse tiste, ki so ''too fast for love'' in ki si o monogamni zvezi in seksu zgolj po poroki mislijo, da gre za dve največji iluziji, so doživeli marsikaj - med drugim tudi tragično smrt enega od članov benda. A tudi to jih ni ustavilo in zdaj so Martin Sweet, Peter London, Eric Young ter Gabriel Keyes močnejši in nevarnejši in bolj sleazy kot kadarkoli prej. In prihajajo v ljubljanski Orto Bar.
Z njimi bodo prav tako jebozovni The Cruel Intentions ter Highride.
Pripravite se na vroč večer!


CRASHDÏET

Bio:
CrashdïetIt has been the motivational “catch phrase” for the Swedish boys in CRASHDÏET ever since they started out back in the beginning of 2000. They’ve clearly gone through turbulence a number of times their career, with deaths, line-up changes and a history of abuse that would make Mötley Crüe's “The Dirt” sound like a children's book. However, the boys have become known for picking up the pieces and returning to the scene, every time they crash.
Their undeniable flirt with the 80s big arena rock bands like Guns N’ Roses, Kiss, Skid Row etc., combined with a notable element of punk, has made them a significant name in the revival of the sleaze and glam (or hair metal) genre.
CRASHDÏET released their critically acclaimed debut album “Rest in sleaze” in the fall of 2005 through Universal Music, giving them a spring of success in their home country. But shortly after, in January of 2006, their frontman and founder Dave Lepard, was found dead in his home after committing suicide.
The surviving members have carried on the torch ever since, recruiting new frontmen, touring the world and releasing studio albums for their widespread fans.
In September of 2019 they will release their fifth studio album, followed by a European tour together with their neighbors in Norway: The Cruel Intentions and Swedish punk-sleaze act Highride.

THE CRUEL INTENTIONS

The Cruel IntentionsFormer Vains of Jenna singer Lizzy DeVine has hooked up with fellow Swedes Mats Wernerson and Robin Nilsson and Norwegian rock monster Kristian Nygaard Solhaug to form The Cruel Intentions. As you'd expect, they have more swagger than a dozen penguins bloated on krill.

HIGHRIDE

Bio:
HighrideHighride formed in 2006 as a noisy punk rock band in the dirty suburbs of Stockholm, Sweden. Two years of songwriting and sweating in tiny rehersal rooms led to the band’s live debut in 2008 and the early years was all about building a fanbase, performing live anywhere they could. With numerous shows behind them (sharing stage with bands such as Hardcore Superstar and Crashdïet) and with a unique blend of punk, sleaze and hard rock – Highride has without a doubt managed to put their name on the international rock ‘n’ roll map.

Še ena za pod rubriko "Saj ni res pa je" hahaha
Tako je, vračajo se Gutalax in Spasm !! Družbo jim bodo delali Guineapig ... Dreka in iger !!
Torej, če malce prefraziramo Kosovela, gre zadeva takole:
(v spremljavi počasnega goregrind polka ritma)
Drek je zlato!
Zlato je drek!
Drek je Gutalax!
Gutalax je zlato!
In to uspešno potrdimo. Gutalax so dobesedno spolirali drek do zlatega. In to na najboljši možni način! Seveda, govorimo v prispodobah - gre za zelo znan češki grind band, ki za razliko od milijon drugih bendov po svetu, uspešno piše pesmi o kakanju, prdenju, kakcih, smradu, rjavih madežih in še čem. Čeprav se tega seveda ne razume, ko slišite vokal. Ko pa slišite glasbo, veste, da kakci lahko tudi dišijo po vijolicah in da je goregrind, ta brutalna glasbena zvrst, ekvivalent disko hitom 80-ih. David Hasselhoff, pomazan s ... no, saj veste s čim. Kakorkoli že - Gutalax so žur! Zabava! In so brutal! Na zabaven in prijeten način! Tako, kot nekaterim ni jasno, kako lahko nekateri sedijo na WC-ju 20 minut in buljijo v telefon/časopis, medtem ko se okrog njih razpreda črevesna aroma iz novonastalega kupčka, tako tudi nekaterim ni jasno, zakaj so Gutalax tako dobri. A so! Odlični so! Niso za en drek! In njihovi vedno visokoštevilno obiskani koncerti to vztrajno kažejo!
Z njimi bodo igrali tudi drugi Čehi - ki so brutal in bolani, na najboljši možen način seveda. Na death-gore-grind način. To so Spasm s svojimi šaljivimi besedili in brutalno glasbo ter Guineapig, ki so kot trije prašički, ki pa s svojo glasbo podrejo bajto volku na glavo.
Koncert se bo odvil v petek, 18. oktobra, plesalo pa se bo v Ortu v Ljubljani. Vstopnice so že na voljo!
Dreka in iger!

SPASM

Bio:
SpasmThe Epoch of Spasm started at the beginning of winter month January in 2000. At that time the band was intended as a side-project of the hordes Psychopathia and Romantic Love, but everything completely changed. When Psychopathia (up to that time a regular and running band) was laid to rest, nothing prevented us from leading the band as a full featured group. Our aim was evident – we wanted to play extreme music with an extraordinary concept. The first line-up was formed with the help of another member of Psychopathia – Mira - guitar, but after a short engagement, the line – up slowly crystallized to the three – members’ band. At that point in time line – up was: Sam – bass grind inferno, Lukáš – drums and cymbals and Máňa- vocals. During the next year, Spasm composed and rehearsed songs for the debut demo CD - “ Spasmatic Secretion”, which was released in May 2001, but it wasn’t released nor spread among audience. Then Spasm made a progression, we tried to form our original style of playing (the band refuses using guitars) and participated in various actions and gigs. In 2004 Spasm experienced the turning point in its career – we recorded a promo CD for an eventual label release, what finally happened.
Copremesis prod. released the debut album of Spasm in May 2005. Later on, when ideal and conceptual disputes appeared, Máňa left the band and his post was taken by owner of the releasing label Copremesis- Radim (Copretina). So, the line – up was: Sam – bass guitar, Lukáš – drums and Radim – vocals. After releasing our debut album “Lust For Feculent Orgasm”, the band started playing in different fests and gigs, Obscene extreme 2006 was the most important performance in our career.
In next tree years our horde intensively played dozens of shows in Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Germany and Austria, we participated in several compilations and we were hardly working on another CD. As a result of our effort, we met with growing warm reception of fans and with growing interest and popularity as well.
At the beginning of 2008 Spasm entered the studio to record new material for the second full – length CD. We succeed in realizing it, recorded a big amount of songs, so some of them were put on Split EP with our grinding Slovakian friends Mizar. This Split Ep was released by a friend of our band - Bohdan and his Rarach Katus rec. in March 2008.
In October 2008 another glorious period of our history was started, when our second CD called “Paraphilic Elegies“ was released on German label Rotten Roll Rex. after some major technical inconveniences. Firstly, we unobtrusively had a few shows supporting our actual release, but we decided to play intense and maximal shows all around for the next year 2009.
Between 2009 - 2010 the band participated in many gigs and festivals throughout Europe (Ukraine, Portugal, The Netherlands) and also in their homeland. Moreover, Spasm filmed their first music video. That was the time for preparing another CD as well.
In summer 2011 Spasm released the third full-lenght album "Taboo Tales" and the whole crazy carousel starts up again.
In the same year Spasm shot another official video, which awarded amazing 4th place in Czech music survey Břitva in "Video of the year".
The year of 2012 brings the first real European tour with friends Gutalax. We played 10 gigs in 10 days in 5 countries. The whole venue was really successful and also the new merchandise has been maximally promoting the band.
We appeared on great summer festivals – awesome Obscene Extreme and also Extreme Fest in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. Afterwards we played gigs in the Netherlands, Poland or Switzerland and Germany again.
In 2013 we experienced playing in Russia for the first time and we took part in some great small Czech festivals like Antitrend Fest and also in famous Rape The Escape Fest in Austria.
January 2014 brought us the golden opportunity to play headlining and successful tour which took place in different parts of Mexico. In May we played twice in the Netherlands, two awesome fests like Grindhoven and the biggest indoor extreme festival Neurotic Death Fest.
Now we are looking forward to appear on brilliant Brutal Assault Fest and superb Fekal Party in Czech Republic as well as Chimpy fest in Great Britain.

Antikrščansko in avstralsko
''Australian and Antichristian'' je komad kultnih diaboličnih metalcev Destroyer666, ki se oktobra vračajo v Orto Bar.
Destroyer666 so neusmiljeni, hitri, brutalni, glasni in imajo popoln ''don't give a fuck'' odnos do vsega. Kontroverzni? Seveda. Brezkompromisni? Še bolj. Ubijalski v živo? Vsekakor. Mojstri vam bodo pokazali, kako se zadevi streže. Odsvetujemo tistim, ki so zlahka užaljeni.
Pred njimi bodo mrtve ponovno oživeli death metaličarji Dead Congregation, grški odgovor na Morbid Angel, Immolation in Incantation. Z velikim veseljem pa vam predstavljamo ubijalsko uničevalni Avstralce Nocturnal Graves, katerih skupni imenovalec je hitrost, pomnožena z blasfemičnostjo. In seveda obvezno sledenje sloganu ''women, leather and hell''!
Koncert bodo odprli Inconcessus Lux Lucis, angleški black metalski trio.
To je koncert, o katerem se bo govorilo leta in leta - seveda ga ne smete zamuditi. UGH!


DESTRÖYER 666

Bio:
Deströyer 666DESTRÖYER 666 continue to do what they are best at: kicking ass and hammering out heavy metal that is slamming straight into the face. No compromise, no sell out, no bullshit!
The Australians fill the gap between albums with the hard-hitting EP, 'Call of the Wild' that comes with a distinct taste of an unrepentantly classic flavour.
DESTRÖYER 666 don't do whiny nostalgia but simply stick to their old school roots, which are reaching straight down into the golden age of metal while allowing themselves to sound fresh and remain relevant. The band originally started out as a solo project of BESTIAL WARLUST guitarist KK in Australia in 1994. As early as with debut album 'Unchain the Wolves' (1997), fast-tracked towards international acclaim. The even stronger second full-length, 'Phoenix Rising' (2000) had the Australians relocating to Europe to be able to satisfy the soaring demand for touring and festival shows. After a round of line-up changes, third full length 'Cold Steel... For an Iron Age' (2002) cemented the band's excellent reputation. After a hiatus caused among other issues by disenchantment with the business, DESTRÖYER 666 returned with 'Defiance' in 2009 and followed up on this success with the rough and gritty 'Wildfire' seven years later that saw them touring and performing at all the relevant metal festivals worldwide on a regular basis again.
'Call of the Wild' comes with three fresh tracks and the revisited classic, "Trialed by Fire”, which was first published on 'Terror Abraxas' (2003). Now come and get yours!

Saturday (thrash) night live
V soboto, 16. 11. 2019, bomo imeli posebno čast doživeti kultne ameriške družbeno-kritične thrasherje Sacred Reich, ki bodo pokazali Orto Baru, kaj je pravi ameriški thrash.
Kultni bend iz Arizone je Slovenijo obiskal že v prejšnjem stoletju, nazadnje pa smo jih videli na festivalu Metaldays nekaj let nazaj. Avtorji plošč Surf Nicaragua, Ignorance, The American Way, Heal ter Independent bodo letos posneli novi album, ga izdali prek založbe Metal Blade in prišli končno spet tudi k nam. Tokrat bodo mojstri ostrih družbeno-kritičnih tekstov, v katerih napadajo predvsem laži demokratične družbe, neusmiljenje korporacije in človeški pohlep, k nam prišli še z eno pridobitvijo - to pa je njihov nekdanji bobnar Dave McClain, ki je iz benda odšel konec 90-ih let in nato soustvarjal legendarni opus enih in edinih Machine Head, zdaj pa se je ponovno vrnil v bend, ki je z njim seveda več kot zadovoljen.
Če ste fani hitrih ritmov ali počasnih napadov, boste v vsakem slučaju prišli na svoje. Sacred Reich so znani po razgibanih setlistah in neverjetni energiji, tako da se pričakuje sobotni thrash večer, o katerem se bo govorilo še leta in leta.
Seveda ne bodo sami, kot predskupina bodo nastopili izvrstni Night Demon!
Vstopnice so že na voljo.

NIGHT DEMON

Bio:
Night DemonVentura, California is a picturesque beachside town along the Pacific coast. But beneath this tranquil veneer, something dangerous lurks in the shadows of the dark. Night Demon erupted onto the underground heavy metal scene with a self-titled four-song EP in 2012. This recording showcases a sound forged in a deep-seated passion for the New Wave of British Heavy Metal melded to distinctly American muscle and swagger, transcending musical trends and cutting across generational and genre-dividing lines. A street-level buzz soon emerged, as listeners around the globe were captivated by this exciting, fresh take on a revered sound. Night Demon’s momentum accelerated in 2014, with the band landing support slots on Diamond Head and Raven tours of the USA, and launching the first of many DIY van tours across Europe that summer. This European jaunt strung together several festival appearances over a six-week period, with the routing in-between filled by gigs in every city, town and hole-in-the-wall village they could find. It became the blueprint for the band’s subsequent trips to Europe in 2014 and beyond. The net result was that, both at home and abroad, Night Demon earned a reputation as an incendiary, must-see live act with a tireless work ethic.
The next milestone in Night Demon’s career arc was the release of their first full-length album in January 2015 via Century Media in the USA and SPV/Steamhammer in Europe. Entitled Curse of the Damned, the record refined the band’s trademark sound as exhibited on the Night Demon EP. It also inspired fanatical devotion amongst the heavy metal faithful, garnering widespread critical acclaim and being voted the #1 album of 2015 by listeners of WCJU’s Metal on Metal radio show in Cleveland, Ohio. To promote the record, Night Demon hit the killing road for the better part of two years, crisscrossing the United States multiple times both as part of package tours (such as the Carcass/Crowbar/Ghoul trek in summer 2016) and on their own. With each successive tour, Night Demon’s live show incorporated additional production elements, including innovative lighting and visual effects and the nightly onstage appearance of the band’s black-cloaked skeletal mascot, Rocky, to haunt, goad and tempt concertgoers into drinking from the chalice. Reaping the rewards of their relentless touring of the European market, Night Demon scored a high-profile appearance on the main stage at Germany’s Bang Your Head!!! festival in July 2016. Fully committed to veering off the beaten path to bring their heavy metal heat to more people in more places, the band embarked on a pair of tours of Mexico and, in early 2017, a run of 20 dates in South America and Latin America, including ten shows in Brazil alone.
These steps bring us to the present. Night Demon, which features Jarvis Leatherby (vocals/bass), Armand John Anthony (guitar), and Dusty Squires (drums), stand on the precipice of their biggest album/touring cycle yet. The band’s second full-length album, Darkness Remains, is set for imminent worldwide release. Heralded by the compelling lead single and video track “Welcome to the Night,” Darkness Remains finds Night Demon delivering all of the expected NWOBHM-inspired thrills and chills, but also honing their songwriting chops, developing more of an individual sound, sharpening their attack, and even taking some chances along the way. Darkness Remains boasts a raw, powerful, full and clear production that complements the tracks perfectly and sets the gold standard for how a traditional metal record should sound in 2017. Of course, these indefatigable road warriors will tour full speed ahead to promote the new album, beginning with a U.S. tour alongside Anvil in spring 2017. Numerous festival appearances are also in the offing, including amongst others Frost and Fire, Defenders of the Old, and Maryland Death Fest’s Days of Darkness in America, Up the Hammers in Greece, Pounding Metal in Spain, Very ‘Eavy in the Netherlands, and Keep It True, Rock Hard and Party.San Metal Open Air in Germany. For Night Demon, no stage is too small and no stage is too large. They will take them all by storm. Welcome to the blessed night …

Decembrski folk metal napad
Veseli december ... vsekakor bo vesel, če obožujete švicarsko folk metal zasedbo Eluveitie. Namreč, vrača se v Ljubljano!
Številčna zasedba bo aprila prek založbe Nuclear Blast izdala album Ategnatos, kar v galščini pomeni ''preporod'' oziroma ''ponovno rojstvo''. Gre za zanimiv, verjetno konceptualni izdelek, ki bo seveda prikazal, kaj zasedba zmore v letu 2019. Temu primerno bo tudi novi koncertni cikel predstavljal novo plato, a gotovo ne bodo pozabili na večne klasike, še posebej ne na tiste s kultne plošče Slania.
Ker za Eluveitie velja, da skorajda vedno razprodajo dvorano, nabavite vstopnice čimprej.
Poleg Švicarjev bodo oder zasedli še eni in edini italijanski gothic metalci Lacuna Coil, ki jih vodi neverjetno karizmatična Christina Scabbia, bend pa vam bo ponudil mračno metal izkušnjo, kot je verjetno še niste doživeli. Več kot uveljavljen bend vsekakor ne počne nič pod 110-odstotno.
Koncert bodo odprli nažigaški Infected Rain, ki jih boste lahko pred tem videli na Metaldays!
5. decembra, Miklavžev večer, si rezervirajte za metal v Kinu Šiška.


ELUVEITIE

Bio:
EluveitieWe all wade through archetypes. We all ARE archetypes. Distant echoes of a life both primeval and noble. To embrace these archetypes, to accept them not only as a part of life but as life itself is what some may call enlightenment, some peace of mind. ELUVEITIE call it »Ategnatos«. And by using their longest gap between two Metal albums to gather momentum, they just forged their strongest album around it.
Born in the rural mysticism of the Swiss alps and since a very early point deeply rooted within Celtic mythology, Gaulish history and proto-European culture, ELUVEITIE have long become Folk Metal’s trailblazers, spindoctors and rightful masters of their craft. All the more because they never limited themselves to simple forays through rune-decorated cliches or foolish drinking songs. From their fabled debut »Spirit« (2006) onward, theirs was an approach of respect, historic accuracy, depth and the most thrilling, catchy, primordial melange of Melodic Death Metal and Pagan Folk the world could have ever imagined.
Success, of course, was not far behind. Their groundbreaking seminal work »Slania« saw them bond with Nuclear Blast, a friendship that lasts to this day and quickly turned the band into a worldwide phenomenon. In a rapid two-year-succession, they unleashed »Everything Remains (As It Never Was)«, »Helvetios« and that massive monument of all things Folk Metal called »Origins«, framed by the two elaborate and archaic acoustic albums »Evocation I – The Arcane Dominion and »Evocation II - Pantheon«, the last of which was also presented on an unforgettable acoustic tour. On each release, they refined their trademark brand of Chrigel’s thundering roar, metallic fierceness and folkloric ingenuity that has always been miles above the usual “let’s add some bagpipes there”.
Members came, members went. The soul of ELUVEITIE, though, the very essence of this pagan congregation remained undisturbed. Now, in the dawn of 2019, they look back upon an impressive seven studio albums, the last of which climbed to the very top of the Swiss album charts and also made a remarkable entry at No. 6 in Germany, as well as countless tours around the globe and headliner slots at the biggest Metal festivals. Still, this was only the beginning. A 13-year-overture for the things about to come. The sky is darkening, the ravens fly. The stage is set for the thunderstorm that has already been heralded by the tempestuous harbinger »Rebirth« in late 2017. Finally, everything is prepared for the colossal voice of the ages that is »Ategnatos«.
On an album both mystical and philosophical, ELUVEITIE propel mythology, pagan belief and spirituality into our modern world. “This one almost became something like a socio-critical uncovering work”, says Chrigel, “some kind of a revelation, a doomsday prophecy. Dark and severe in its atmosphere and charisma, and also occult, arcane and elitist.” The album itself is a manifesto, a fast-paced, highly dramatic and embellished work on which today's society sees itself in the mirror of ancient Celtic mythology and knowledge. “The image, of course, is blood-curling”, Chrigel adds with a bitter grin. “At least to those with eyes to see.” Far more that a pessimistic swan song for our world, however, »Ategnatos« holds the cathartic promise of renewal. “Ategnatos is the Gaulish word for ‘reborn’”, Chrigel explains. “To the sharpened mind, it points out the concealed, long forgotten key to change and renewal.” This, naturally, comes at a price. “There's always suffering before bliss. And always darkness before light.”
A work based on archaic archetypes and the ancient concept of renewal, »Ategnatos« unfolds an elemental force to be reckoned with. “These archetypes are still within us. People didn't change that much during the last 3000 years – and men were always just men.” No wonder the album follows a decidedly darker, monumental tone that suits them very well. Of course, ELUVEITIE have long found their very own trademark sound, a sonic adventure often copied but never overcome. With »Ategnatos«, the dedicated nine-piece not only worked with a real string quartet (a premiere!) and granted Fabienne Erni’s sublime mastery of the harp the room it deserved; they also undertook a holistic upgrade resulting in some of the most catchy (‘Ambriamus’), most aggressive (‘Worship’, featuring LAMB OF GOD titan Randy Blythe on guest vocals) or most epic (‘Black Water Down’) tunes the Swiss Metal nobility has ever offered.
While this may not come as a surprise to those familiar with the zeal and ardor this band is known for, the whole journey that would eventually give birth to »Ategnatos« was rather unusual. With what quickly became the most stable, most prolific and most creative line-up yet, ELUVEITIE created the album while staying at the Zurich University of Arts and more than ever worked as one. This is an accomplishment in itself given the fact that the Swiss Folk Metal superstars boast a full nine members, but it gets even more special if you recall the usual process of creation. “From the very beginning of ELUVEITIE, my blueprint for a new album remained untouched and eventually became a reality. This record, however, is a product of the entire band. The whole affair was a decidedly spontaneous process allowing the songs to radically change while still in development.” The instant hit ‘Ambriamus’, for example, only took them two hours to write when they already were in the studio. “A bit unusual”, Chrigel confesses, “but all the more brilliant.”
Some things, of course, never change. Recordings took place in their beloved New Sound Studio with their engineer of choice Tommy Vetterli. “Yet it was radically different as we only had four weeks to record this time around – as compared to the eight weeks we had for ‘Origins’.” By taking mixing duties to the skilled hand of renowned studio wizard Jens Bogren in his Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden, ELUVEITIE returned to the very spot where they mixed their now legendary »Slania« album more than ten years ago. “How time flies”, Chrigel exclaims. And with an insurmountable epic like »Ategnatos« under their belts, the next years are bound to fly by, too. Heavy touring will commence even before the release, taking the band to South America first. “Asia, Europe and the United States are about to follow, bridged by a massive festival season”. Oh no, ELUVEITIE are not only back, stronger and fiercer than ever. They are reborn. Truly and thoroughly reborn, thus becoming an archetype of their own.

LACUNA COIL

Bio:
Infected RainLacuna Coil is a gothic metal band from Milan, Italy. Since their formation in 1994, the group has had two name changes, being previously known as Sleep of Right and Ethereal. Inspired by the combination of gothic imagery and music, the members have been known, musically, for composing mid-tempo songs consisting of prominent guitar lines and contrasting dual female/male vocal harmonies to help create a melodic, detached sound. Much of the band's recent material, however, sees a heavier and more down-tuned style, featuring a more distinct bass line and a higher mixing of the guitars within the songs. The band's 2012 release, Dark Adrenaline, peaked at number 15 on the Billboard 200. They have toured internationally and were nominated in 2006 for an MTV Europe Music Award.
