LIV SIN: ‘Blood Moon Fever’ Music Video

The official music video for “Blood Moon Fever”, the brand new single from LIV SIN, the Swedish band led by former SISTER SIN vocalist Liv “Sin” Jagrell. The song is taken from LIV SIN’s upcoming album, “Burning Sermons”, which will be released on September 6 via Despotz Records. The disc was produced by Emil Nödtveidt (DEATHSTARS) at Black Syndicate studio.

 

Liv comments on the track: “‘Blood Moon Fever’ is a catchy and heavy melody driven song that will make you wanna both headbang and dance. The single represents a new beginning, about leaving old stuff behind you and go out in the world as a reborn creature. We thought that the concept suited well with a new album on its way, which might sound a bit different from the first one. Some of our sinners out there might be surprised by the sound of this one where our producer Emil Nödtveidt’s influence really shines through. Prepare to get this tune spinning in your head for a long time to come.”

 

Channelling the band’s love of classic heavy metal with a bruising modern edge, “Burning Sermons” is a riff-heavy collection; showcasing LIV SIN’s innate ability to match melody with aggressive metal with ease. Jagrell is in particularly fine form throughout, with a voice equally capable of capturing your heart as it is knocking buildings to the ground.

 

Liv comments on her decision to work with Emil: ‘We wanted to explore a more modern sound with some synthesizers on this album. I think that this album might surprise a lot of our fans. I have known Emil for many years, so it was really fun to reconnect. The first moment he sent us his ideas of our demos, I was delirious.”
LIV SIN’s upcoming single “Hope Begins To Fade” features a guest appearance by SOILWORK singer Björn “Speed” Strid.

 

The band is currently planning its upcoming European tour and is confirmed for major festivals such as Sabaton Open Air and Skogsröjet.

 

LIV SIN’s acclaimed 2017 debut album was co-produced by German metal musicians Stefan Kaufmann (U.D.O., ACCEPT) and Fitty Wienhold (U.D.O.) and featured guest appearances by Schmier from DESTRUCTION and Jyrki 69 of THE 69 EYES.

VENOM’s ‘In Nomine Satanas’ 40th-Anniversary Deluxe Vinyl Box Set: Unboxing Video

An unboxing video for the “In Nomine Satanas” deluxe vinyl box set from VENOM can be viewed above.

 

VENOM formed in 1979 in Newcastle upon Tyne. Coming to prominence towards the end of the new wave of British heavy metal, the band’s first two albums — “Welcome To Hell” (1981) and “Black Metal” (1982) — are considered a major influence on thrash metal and extreme metal in general. VENOM’s second album proved influential enough that its title was used as the name of the extreme metal subgenre of black metal. The band classic line-up trio of Cronos, Mantas and Abaddon recorded two further studio albums, “At War With Satan” (1984) and “Possessed” (1985), and live album, “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik” (1986). Often cited by bands such as METALLICA, BEHEMOTH, CELTIC FROST and MAYHEM as major influences, they are one of the most revered bands of their generation. VENOM is still fronted by original singer/bassist Cronos and headlines festivals all over the globe and continues to release new music.

 

This coming May 31 sees the release of “In Nomine Satanas” via BMG — a deluxe vinyl box set that celebrates VENOM’s 40th anniversary and features the original Neat Records recordings from their 1981 debut “Welcome To Hell” to “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik”, the live recording of their mythical appearance at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1985. All of the albums are remastered from the original tapes with embossed covers, posters and inserts like their original first editions. They’re all now on color-configured vinyl too. The set also includes a 12-inch book detailing the history of the band featuring new interviews with all three members, written by respected journalist Dom Lawson.

 

Of particular interest to hardcore VENOM fans will be the “Sons Of Satan” double album included within the set that features a treasure trove of unreleased demos from the bands vaults, some of which are mythical among fans who have known about their existence, but have never heard them as the tracks alluded bootleggers. Among the tracks are the earliest known VENOM performances, captured where the band rehearsed in 1979 at Westgate Road Church Hall in Newcastle’s West End and featuring original singer Clive “Jesus Christ” Archer on vocals. Also included are the £50 demos from 1980, captured at Impulse Studios, alongside further demos from 1980 and the “At War With Satan” 1983 Impulse Studio demos.

Hollywood Vampires “The Boogieman Surprise” (Live) Official Video – Album Rise out June 21st

Fresh off a triumphant seven-city North America tour this week, which included a stop at the famous Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, the HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES have unveiled the brand-new song “The Boogieman Surprise”. At the aforementioned L.A. performance, Steven Tyler, the AEROSMITH frontman and longtime musical partner of Joe Perry, turned up for a guest appearance, as did Marilyn Manson. Johnny Depp took lead vocals on David Bowie’s “Heroes” and the “world’s most expensive bar band,” as proclaimed by Alice Cooper, delivered a live master class of rock ‘n’ roll, which included “The Boogieman Surprise”.

 

The song has been part of the band’s live set since the 2018 world tour and is a highlight of every HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES live show. Written by the band, it features the undeniable chemistry between rock and roll royalty Perry, Hollywood superstar Depp and shock rock icon Cooper. A laid-back groove, grinding guitars, and smooth strings create an epic, ominous, outsider anthem with Cooper’s vocal sounding as fierce as ever. Their stage telepathy is showcased in the accompanying live video, filmed at the Montreux Jazz Festival 2018.

 

“Rise”, the band’s second album, is some of the purest, unapologetic and most enjoyable rock and roll of the year, made by masters of the craft and true fans of the form.

 

Unlike their 2015 debut record, “Rise” consists mainly of original material, written by the band. There are however, in the spirit of the VAMPIRES’ original mission, three covers of songs originally written and recorded by some fellow rockers who died far too young: an intimate and intense version of “Heroes”, again beautifully performed on record by Depp; the JIM CARROLL BAND’s “People Who Died” and Johnny Thunders’s “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory”, sung by Perry.

 

Produced by Tommy Henriksen and the HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES, “Rise” will be released on June 21 on earMUSIC as a CD digipak, 2LP+download and digital.

 

“Rise” track listing:

 

01. I Want My Now
02. Good People Are Hard To Find
03. Who’s Laughing Now
04. How The Glass Fell

 

05. The Boogieman Surprise
06. Welcome to Bushwackers (feat. Jeff Beck + John Waters)
07. The Wrong Bandage
08. You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory
09. Git From Round Me
10. Heroes
11. A Pitiful Beauty
12. New Threat
13. Mr. Spider
14. We Gotta Rise
15. People Who Died
16. Congratulations

 

Completing the HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES live lineup are rock star musician friends Glen Sobel (ALICE COOPER) on drums, Chris Wyse (THE CULT) on bass, and Buck Johnson (AEROSMITH) on keyboard and vocals.

Perry is a Songwriters Hall Of Fame inductee for working with artists such as P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears and Adele, and was also nominated in 2018 for a Grammy Award for Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical, making her the first woman in 15 years to be nominated in the category.

 

“Linda Perry is one of the greatest influences on modern pop music, having worked with some of the most successful artists of this generation, which is why we are incredibly grateful to be able to honor her at ‘Linda Perry & Friends: A Night at the Grammy Museum’,” said Michael Sticka, executive director of the Grammy Museum. “She has been deeply influential as both a songwriter and producer, showcasing the legacy one can create not only on stage, but behind the scenes, and is an exemplary artist for the students in our music education programs to look up to.”

 
“I am excited and honored to be a part of ‘Linda Perry & Friends: A Night At the Grammy Museum’,” said Perry. “It’s even more special knowing the gala benefits music education, something I’m incredibly passionate about. I can’t wait to celebrate with some of the great artists I’ve had the pleasure of working with during my career.”

 

“Linda Perry & Friends: A Night at the Grammy Museum” gala will begin with a reception that takes over all four floors of the Museum and a silent auction offering an exclusive and unparalleled selection of luxury items, VIP experiences, and one-of-a-kind celebrity memorabilia for bidding guests. The reception and silent auction will be followed by a gala dinner, a live auction, and a tribute concert at The Novo featuring renowned musicians and other artists and the award presentation.
