DEVILDRIVER – Third South African Show Added

h
g

A couple of days ago I posted the news that there will be a box set based on the four DIO-era BLACK SABBATH releases. I posed some questions of band management regarding some details on the set, and I can now bring you an update based on what I found out.

Individual Releases: The albums will likely eventually be released on their own, but no plans yet, and even that's not for sure. For now you should consider them part of the box set only.

Remastering: This is not the same remastering sessions that produced last year's The Dio Years releases. This is a totally new remastering session from the Dio Years sessions.

Five Discs: The press release stated that there would be five discs in this release. The five discs will be Heaven & Hell, The Mob Rules, Dehumanizer and Live Evil...

ROCKET REVIEW:

DELIVER US FROM EVIL –

“Behold A Pale Horse” (CD)

On the fearsomely enjoyable Behold A Pale Horse (Self-Released/2008), a professionally assembled eleven song collection of complicated riffage and double-bass driven Heavy Metal, each track, beginning with the skillfully constructed “Ashes Remain”, “Profit”, and the wickedly majestic “Surviving “The Storm”, instantly grabs the listener by the throat with a solid-flow of steady, irresistably rocking grooves that make this material as unshakeable as a bad drug habit...

JUDAS PRIEST – New Track Posted Online!

"Today we have an announcement that will come as a shock to all of you. The four permanent members of the band have had some discussions and it is clear that we have different goals and visions for the future. Therefore it is best for the band, ourselves as individuals and for the fans that we go separate ways now when there is still plenty of time before the next THERION album and world tour. This means that Christofer [Johnsson, THERION mainman] will continue with THERION and the others will perform their music in other projects and bands.

"We're all still friends, no one is disappointed and there's still some work we have left to do together in terms of editing of materials we have recorded for future DVD's.

"Best regards to all of you and thank you so much for the wonderful sup...

Check it out at this location. The song is from the band's forthcoming album Prevail, set for release via Nuclear Blast Records on May 23rd (Europe) and May 27th (North America), features guest solo appearances by Pat O'Brien (CANNIBAL CORPSE), Dave Linsk (OVERKILL) and producer and guitar shredder Jason Suecof himself.

Frontman Maurizio Iacono recently commented on the song: "The meaning behind the track 'The Chains Of Power' is essential. It’s a song the band wrote to give gratitude and strength to all the courageous soldiers who fight for our freedom. It doesn’t matter if you are for or against certain wars, nor the bullshit politics that are associated with these topics...
