RED VINYL TWO-DISC SET, CD
AND DIGITAL RELEASE (WITH BONUS TRACK) OF
‘ABSOLUTE TREASURES’
OUT JULY 31 ON ODE SOUNDS & VISUALS

“Rocky Horror is a family film.”
–Lou Adler, Producer

40 years after movie audiences began singing along to such hits as “The Time Warp,” “Sweet Transvestite” and “Dammit Janet,” THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW fans can own a piece of history with the newly re-mastered ABSOLUTE TREASURES soundtrack. Due out July 31 on Ode Sounds & Visuals and distributed by The Orchard, the soundtrack will be available as a limited-edition red vinyl two-disc set, and CD and as a digital release, which includes a bonus track will be available on August 21.

The red vinyl was created to honor the film’s legacy and the devotion from fans to create something unique to celebrate this historic occasion. “THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW has always had a mind of its own fueled by the insight and direction of its fans,” says producer, Lou Adler.

The influence of the cult classic, which has been entertaining movie audiences since its debut, now spans fourgenerations. “I recently heard a story about a man who went to see Rocky in the early 70’s,” says Adler. “He later had a daughter who went to see Rocky in the 90’s, and she now has a son, who just turned 15, and is seeing Rocky in the 2000’s. Proves that what I always said: ‘Rocky Horror is a family film.’ Because THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is generally screened at midnight, age is a factor. But as tweens become teens, they come to be the next generation of fans. THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is in a way a right of passage.”

The digital release of ABSOLUTE TREASURES will include the movie’s vocal version of “The Sword of Damocles.” According to soundtrack producer Richard Hartley, “There were two artists who recorded ‘The Sword of Damocles.’ Director, Jim Sharman and I were looking/listening for the ‘Glam’ rock sound of a Bowie and or a T. Rex. We wanted a falsetto voice for Rocky, because after all he was just born. The vocal performance in the film is that of an Australian singer. It was recorded live on the set–I think on the 19th of December 1974. And that’s the version that’s in the film. The one that has been included on soundtrack albums is the alternate take by one of the backing singers, which was used as something for the actor playing Rocky to mime to.”

**”The Sword of Damocles,” movie version, digital bonus track will be available on the ABSOLUTE TREASURES soundtrack at iTunes, Amazon and all digital stores, as well as available free of charge on The Rocky Horror Fan Club SoundCloud at https://soundcloud.com/rockyhorrorfanclub.

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW–the longest distributed theatrical release in motion picture history–debuted as a London theatre production in June 1973. The show came to America in 1974 with nine months of performances at Adler’s Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles. On September 26, 1975, THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW held its U.S. premiere at the UA Westwood Theatre in Los Angeles.

ABOUT BATTERING RAM:
On Battering Ram – with Biff Byford singing as well as he ever has, Paul Quinn and Doug Scarratt making full use of the term ‘shredding’ with their guitars and the lock-steady rhythm of Nibbs Carter’s bass and Nigel Glockler’s drums – the future and the past crash together in an ear-scintillatingly engaging, raucous, melodic-yet-classically heavy ten-song collection which will instantly be hailed as a SAXON classic. The title track, with its delectable twin guitar assault heralding the album’s commencement, gives the listener an instant crack around the chops, whilst traditionalists will be delighted to hear such a perfect marriage of old, classic SAXON with the newer, fresher invective in such riff-fronted fare as “Destroyer” and “Stand Your Ground”, but there are still moments of space and exploration which fans will love.

“This one’s a natural progression from Sacrifice,” says Byford, “There’s a bit less rock’n’roll and a bit more ‘heavy’ on it. We wanted to keep focused on a style rather than moving around too much.”

Produced by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Exodus, Accept) at his Backstage Recording Studios in rural Derbyshire, SAXON were able to hone in and whittle down any excess, finding the sonic space and balance to let Battering Ram’s riffs and melodies get the necessary space to scream front and center, Sneap bringing a crispness to the sound which evokes memories of the early ‘80s without for one moment sounding dated.

“Yes, Andy has been in charge of everything with this album, I keep on overview of it all, but he’s done a great job and we’re both pleased with the results. We have a great partnership,” adds Byford.

Lyrically, Battering Ram covers a variety of social situations, like the screaming fans who rage at the gig barriers (“Battering Ram”) or engaging in some good old fashioned myth (“The Devil’s Footprint” – a 200 year old tale of people waking up in winter snowfall to see unexplained hoof prints which they followed, looking for an answer in vain).

“When I’m writing lyrics I like to switch back and forth between complex things, reality and rock’n’roll,” says Byford, “I thought the whole folklore behind “The Devil’s Footprint” made it great material for a metal song, being that it’s both historic and mythical.

“With “Queen of Hearts” I wanted to write something around Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland, and it’s about the chess game that happens in the story. I wanted it to have prog-feeling in the way of its ambiance and mood. Then you have songs like “Destroyer” and “Hard and Fast” which are ‘80s inspired songs with that modern slant on it. I’m a big fan of Marvel comics, and I wanted to write a song around the character Destroyer, and with “Hard and Fast” it’s as the title suggests, about driving fast! I do like to tie the lyric into the song, so if it’s going to be a song about driving fast, well, it has to be a fast, hard song!”

There is also the album’s closing cut, haunting, gripping, melancholic tale of the First World War, “The Kingdom of The Cross”, where a poem unfurls the feelings and horrors which comprised this most brutal of global conflicts. “This year is the centenary of the end of the First World War. Nigel had a piece of music which he played on a synthesizer for a couple of years that I really liked. We had an actor (and singer), David Bower from the band Hell, read the poem and I sang the choruses. I didn’t want it to be typical Saxon, so it is just keyboards, bass, me and Dave.”

Wonderfully uncompromising, with Battering Ram, SAXON have once again established their rightly-venerated credentials as Kings and vanguards of heavy metal music.

PAGAN’S MIND To Release Live DVD/CD October 16th Via SPV/Steamhammer

PAGAN’S MIND To Release Live DVD/CD October 16th Via SPV/Steamhammer

image

An early highlight in PAGAN’S MIND’s career was playing the ProgPower USA festival in 2003, the American edition of what many consider to be the best niche festival in the world. Hard on the heels of the release of Celestial Entrance (their sophomore release), the praise they received in Atlanta was unlike anything the band had ever experienced before.

PAGAN’S MIND played the festival again in 2007 (also appearing as the house band for the legendary “All Star Jam”), and in 2009 returned for the festival’s 10 Year Anniversary under the moniker “Returning Heroes”.

On September 11th 2014, another historical performance took place at Center Stage, featuring Celestial Entrancein its entirety plus an additional set of True Norwegian Hard-Hitting In-Your-Face Space Metal, including the instrumental piece “Full Circle”. It is this piece, which comprises the theme of the show you are about to witness.

Now the band will release this concert on entitled Full Circle on October 16, 2015 as a 2CD/DVD digipak version, Blu-ray/2CD version, 2LP Gatefold version and download through SPV/Steamhammer

“It’s been about 10 years since I made a Christmas record,” says SETZER. “It [Christmas music] just seems to get more popular every year. They’re classic songs and you wonder after a couple records how many of them are left. Once you dig in you find, wow! I’ve haven’t done ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,’ you know. I’ve never done ‘Here Comes Santa Claus!’ Ones that everyone knows and are still out there. These songs are great songs. It doesn’t matter if they’re holiday songs or when they were written, they’re just great songs. So the trick,” adds SETZER, “is to make them sound hip. Some of them are eternally hip, you know, so you don’t have to do too much.”

 

Produced by Peter Collins (Rush, Bon Jovi, Alice Cooper, etc…) and recorded in both Nashville, TN and Hollywood, CA, the 12-track ROCKIN’ RUDOPLH includes highlights such as “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” “Yabba-Dabba Yuletide,” and “Rockabilly Rudolph,” among other notable Christmas classic tunes with SETZER’s trademark guitar work and vocal stylings matched with THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA’s rockin’ big-band horn arrangements.

About Brian Setzer:

Iconic guitarist, songwriter, vocalist and 3-time Grammy-award-winner, is a “Musician’s Musician” credited with continually taking chances with innovative and daring musical styles, while single-handedly resurrecting two forgotten genres of music (rockabilly in the ‘80’s and swing in the ’90’s). Along the way, he has scored chart-topping hits, sold 13 million records and received the Orville H. Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award throughout his decorated career as founder/leader of the Stray Cats, his 18-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra, and as a solo artist. He is consistently cited as one of the world’s greatest living guitarists, and has a best-selling, extensive line of elite Gretsch signature model guitars bearing his name. Brian appeared in the 1987 film, La Bamba, portraying rockabilly pioneer Eddie Cochran. In 2002, Brian earned the privilege of being one of the few musicians to be animated in an episode of “The Simpsons,” alongside Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Tom Petty. That same year, Setzer was personally requested to induct Chet Atkins into the 17th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2014, SETZER received the distinct honor of being asked by the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. to donate a replica of his original 1959 Gretsch 6120 “Stray Cat” guitar, joining an elite collection of musical instruments at the museum including Dizzy Gillespie’s trumpet and John Coltrane’s saxophone.

BROKEN HOPE: live concert blu-ray/ live album trailer unveiled!

image

Chicago death-metal-legacy band, BROKEN HOPE, have revealed the trailer for their FIRST-EVER Blu-Ray Concert DVD and Live album via DECIBEL MAGAZINE!

“LIVE DISEASE at BRUTAL ASSAULT” was filmed and recorded at the 19th Annual BRUTAL ASSAULT FESTIVAL at Fortress Josefov, CZECH REPUBLIC on August 8th, 2014 where BROKEN HOPE shared the stage with DEVIN TOWNSEND, AMON AMARTH and other metal titans in front of 20,000+ fans.

The “LIVE DISEASE at BRUTAL ASSAULT” Blu-Ray Concert DVD and Live Album will be released WORLDWIDE via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS on September 18th, 2015.

Watch the exclusive premiere of the concert DVD here:

This Live Concert Blu-Ray and Live Album are historic firsts as BROKEN HOPE has never before released a Live Concert DVD or Live album-until NOW! The concert was filmed by a multi-camera crew on a dozen pro-cameras and pieced together and edited by video-directing god, Tommy Jones (SLAYER, TESTAMENT, LAMB of GOD) while the audio was recorded by Thilo Fehlinger (EXODUS, DEATH ANGEL). Moreover, metal-art master, Mark Rudolph (DECIBEL MAGAZINE, METAL HAMMER MAGAZINE, CELTIC FROST) was commissioned to create ALL of the exterior and interior packaging and cover artwork.

The end result of this collaboration is one of the most visually and sonically stellar Death Metal DVD concert and Live Album packages EVER released!

BROKEN HOPE founding-father-Jeremy Wagner-says:
“Playing BRUTAL ASSAULT in 2014 was a dream come true. Being one of the Main Stage acts at the fest in front of those thousands of insane fans was also a HUGE dream come true. And then…above all that…we had this epic moment captured by a pro video crew and also recorded by the best soundman in the biz, and it made for a perfect storm that enabled us to put it together to share with metal fans the world over to enjoy forever! We couldn’t have done all this without the mega-talent of TOMMY JONES…Tommy took a million pieces of footage and numerous audio files, pieced them all together, aligned everything, edited it all, and made for us (and the world), an absolutely stunning concert DVD! We even added the BROKEN HOPE Documentary-Film, “25 YEARS of SICKNESS-The History of BROKEN HOPE” to this Blu-Ray! This film was released only in North America with “OMEN of DISEASE’…now the entire world will have this amazing film-and in a HI-DEF Blu-Ray format! Last thing I wanna say is: the skills of THILO FEHLINGER, SCOTT CREEKMORE and CHRIS WISCO made our first-ever Live Album a loud, clear, and sonically-bombarding tour-de-force! This entire DVD/CD package is a monumental feather in our cap!”

“LIVE DISEASE” Video Director-Tommy Jones-adds:
“This BROKEN HOPE project has come out SO SICK! It has the quality and look of a high-end and polished commercial piece, but as a completely brutal, death metal concert experience. Definitely one of the COOLEST LOOKING live pieces I have been able to work on in the death metal genre. Really happy with how it all came together.”

(New York, N.Y.): Approximately a year ago, ATREYU, one of the most pivotal and definitive bands of the American hard rock and heavy metal scene that dominated the ’00s, emerged from a period of self-imposed dormancy. The band played both festivals and sold out headline shows, released a new song that earned instant social media trending status, and commenced writing a new album, to the delight of fans.

The band is gearing up to unleash Long Live on September 18 via Spinefarm/Search + Destroy and there is a swell of activity surrounding the album release.

The band has revealed the full track listing for the album, along with the cover art.

Pre-orders for Long Live include a variety of lifestyle items, many of which reflect the interests of the band members themselves. These items include a bike, a surfboard, a skate deck, a Dan Jacobs guitar, a studio-used drumhead, canvas prints, and muay thai gloves.

Fans can pre-order the record HERE.

Additionally, the video for the title track, which was directed by band bassist Porter McKnight, premiered today, July 17. You can watch it HERE.

Drummer Brandon Saller said, “This is my favorite video we’ve ever created. We were fortunate to have our own Porter McKnight at the helm with the art direction and video. We wanted to make the pre-order options interesting and have items for the true collector. Grab your pre-order and get the title track instantly. Then, I recommend going to your car, cranking it up and driving fast while screaming your f**ing head off.”

“I’m so pumped to show this video to the world,” said guitarist Dan Jacobs. “We’ve worked very hard on this record and video, especially our own Porter McKnight, who directed it, so words can’t express how excited we are to share it with everyone. It’s by far the most epic video we have ever made and the face-melting level is on 11. Warning: Uncontrollable head banging will occur.”

“‘Long Live’ is by far my favorite ATREYU video, which is fitting because our new record, titled Long Live, is the strongest ATREYU record to date,” said frontman Alex Varkatzas.

McKnight weighed in on pulling double duty as director for the video, stating, “Writing/directing the music video for ‘Long Live’ has easily been one of the most exhilarating and fruitful artistic endeavors I’ve been a part of. This was my first attempt at either role and I have to say it was an absolute pleasure. The album Long Live (and the title track!) is without a doubt the best music we’ve ever written and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.”

McKnight has provided the art direction for the entire project, from album artwork to promo photos, making the project truly of the band and by the band. “To be at the helm of a project that holds so much love and joy for provides an indescribable sense of excitement and pleasure,” McKnight said. “It is truly a fantastic experience and an honor unlike any I’ve ever known.

Rolling Stone Pimps Kim Kardashian- Sinead O’Connor Calls for a Boycott of the Publication

Rolling Stone Pimps Kim Kardashian- Sinead O’Connor Calls for a Boycott of the Publication

kim-rolling-stone-cover-1435761161

July 14, 2015- Irish singer-songwriter Sinead O’ Conner (48) condemned Rolling Stone Tuesday afternoon for splashing Kim Kardashian, in a sailor’s cap, and her famous boobs, on the issue of their latest cover.

“What is this c–t doing on the cover of Rolling Stone? Music has officially died. Who knew it would be Rolling Stone that murdered it? Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh can no longer be expected to take all the blame. Bob Dylan must be fu–ing horrified.” #‎BoycottRollingStone

Thousands of enraged Rolling Stone fans and Facebook followers say they are officially calling it quits with their once favorite music magazine, lashing out on Rolling Stone’s Facebook page for “murdering art.”

“Rolling Stone, you are now dead to me.”

“Just cancelled my subscription and unfollowing you.”

“Rolling Stone hasn’t been about the music for a long while now.”

“Return issue 1239 of Rolling Stone.”

“Just call yourself Rolling Enquirer and get it over with.”

O’ Connor and thousands of others have declared “music is officially dead.” Will this backlash continue, will everyone really unsubscribe or will the once loyal RS subscribers get used to the “less about music” more “tabloid” styled magazine than it once was? After all, this wouldn’t be their first music uninspired cover. Does Rolling Stone care? Generation Kim K is growing up. The question is, will they be hitting the stands?

“I’m so much smarter than I’m portrayed,” Kim Kardashian tells Rolling Stone– Rising from her sex-tape scandal to business woman to wife of a famous rapper to mother.

Kim Kardashian’s reps have not commented.

Within hours, Sinaed O’ Conner’s Facebook post hit nearly 46,000 likes and 13,000 shares.

O’Connor hit No. 1 in 1990 with “Nothing Compares 2 U”

Rolling Stone has not issued a response.

“I am extremely concerned for you that those around you have led you to believe, or encouraged you in your own belief, that it is in any way ‘cool’ to be naked and licking sledgehammers in your videos. It is in fact the case that you will obscure your talent by allowing yourself to be pimped, whether its the music business or yourself doing the pimping. Nothing but harm will come in the long run, from allowing yourself to be exploited, and it is absolutely NOT in ANY way an empowerment of yourself or any other young women, for you to send across the message that you are to be valued (even by you) more for your sexual appeal than your obvious talent.” -Sinead O’ Connor
