King Diamond “Arrival (Live at Graspop)”

On January 25th, King Diamond will release a new DVD/Blu-ray, Songs For The Dead Live, via Metal Blade Records. There is only one King Diamond, and for more than thirty years the great Dane has been dropping classic albums and putting on shows fans remember for the rest of their lives. Perhaps the only downside to having such a formidable catalogue is that there are just too many great songs to fit into a single set. However, you would be hard-pressed to find a fan who wouldn’t want to hear 1987’s seminal Abigail in its entirety, and Songs For The Dead Live captures this, twice, and in very… Continue reading

SAMAEL – Samael

Swiss black metal pioneers SAMAEL are back with a brand new video! “Samael” is one of the most known songs off their latest album Hegemony (2017).

It’s all about you, enjoy!” Continue reading

Michael Schenker Fest – new album

In 2016, guitar virtuoso Michael Schenker put together Michael Schenker Fest, a tour featuring former Michael Schenker Group vocalists Gary Barden and Graham Bonnet, plus Robin McAuley of the McAuley Schenker Group. Instrumental back-up was provided by former M.S.G. bass player Chris Glen and drummer Ted McKenna, plus guitarist/keyboard player Steve Mann, also of the McAuley Schenker Group. These shows were so rapturously received by audiences worldwide, that it seemed only logical for the protagonists to make new music together. The decision to bring in Doogie White, singer of Schenker’s Temple Of Rock, added even more substance to Michael’s assembly. ‘Resurrection’ – also featuring a guest appearance by Metallica’s Kirk Hammett – was released on March 2nd, 2018 through Nuclear Blast and hit the charts worldwide. Today, Michael Schenker celebrates his 64th birthday and is… Continue reading
