MACHINE HEAD: POSTPONE FALL 2014 NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

Bay area, California thrash warriors MACHINE HEAD have announced the bands fall 2014 NORTH AMERICAN tour with CHILDREN OF BODOM, EPICA and BATTLE CROSS has been postponed as MACHINE HEAD are still in the studio.











MACHINE HEAD are set to unleash "BLOODSTONE & DIAMONDS",  11/7/2014 (EUROPEAN UNION) 11/10/2014 (U.S. and UK) via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.

MACHINE HEAD unleashed  "KILLER AND KINGS" (SINGLE) 4/19/2014  via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.




FROM MACHINE HEAD:
----------------------
It is with great disappointment that Machine Head must announce the postponement of our North American tour this fall. Our new album “Bloodstone & Diamonds” has taken longer to complete than expected and we had to make the difficult choice to either delay the album, let it go out as incomplete, or cancel the tour in order to properly finish and promote the album in the caliber it needs to be done. We decided postponing the tour was the best decision for the record.
We feel this record is a milestone, we feel we have something truly special here, but getting there has been a challenge. Our vocalist / guitarist Robb Flynn just returned from a press tour where he was playing rough mixes and incomplete versions of songs for the press just to try and keep everything on time for our November release date.
Refunds will be available for tickets at point of purchase.
Look out for rescheduled American tour dates for the beginning of the year.
All scheduled European tour dates will remain as scheduled.
Machine Head release their 8th album “Bloodstone & Diamonds" (and their first for Nuclear Blast Entertainment) on Nov 7th - EU, and Nov 10th in the U.S. and U.K.
Track listing is as follows:
MACHINE HEAD - BLOODSTONE & DIAMONDS
1. Now We Die
2. Killers & Kings
3. Ghosts Will Haunt My Bones
4. Night Of Long Knives
5. Sail Into The Black
6. Eyes Of The Dead
7. Beneath The Silt
8. In Comes The Flood
9. Damage Inside
10. Game Over
11. Imaginal Cells (Instrumental)
12. Take Me Through The Fire

FROM METAL BLADE RECORDS:
Anaal Nathrakh premiere new song "Monstrum In Animo" on Decibel Magazine today! http://www.decibelmagazine.com/featured/anaal-nathrakh/
The ferocious new hymn comes by way of the band's soon-to-be detonated 'Desideratum' full-length. Produced by guitarist/bassist/programmer Mick Kenney, with vocals recorded at Necrodeath Studios in Birmingham, and music tracked and mixed at The Black Flamingo in Orange County, California, Desideratum flaunts eleven fantastically mischievous odes of agony and despair. Declares Decibel Magazine, "the ridiculously consistent Birmingham black metallers are simply one of the most utterly fearsome and inventive outfits currently operating in the modern extreme metal scene. Elite level mind-fuckers. Aural devastators…"
'Desideratum' will send the Earth crashing into the Sun on October 28th, 2014. In the interim, brave souls can still sample first single, "Idol," now streaming at metalblade.com/anaalathrakh where you'll also find a host of killer preorder packages. Additionally, fans who preorder the record via iTunes will receive a download of "Idol" AND "Monstrum In Animo" instantly.

Stay tuned for further ANAAL NATHRAKH developments in the coming weeks.

ROADBURN 2015 4/9-12, 2015 @ 013 TILBURG,(HOLLAND) THE NETHERLANDS CONFIRM: SOLSTAFIR, FLOOR, BONGRIPPER, more bands TBA

Promoters for ROADBURN 2015, set to take place  4/9-12, 2015 @ 013 TILBURG,(HOLLAND)  THE NETHERLANDS have confirmed SOLSTAFIR, FLOOR and BONGRIPPER.  




Promoters for ROADBURN 2015 have also confirmed FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM, ENSLAVED and WARDRUNA (curating for "HOUSES OF THE HOLISTIC") SALEM'S POT, SAMMAL, GOBLIN, ZOMBI, PROFETUS and more metal bands TBA.

FROM ROADBURN 2015 PROMOTERS:
We’re are thriled to announce that Icelandic heathens SÓLSTAFIR have been confirmed for Houses of the Holistic, Ivar Bjørnson Official‘s and Einar “Kvitrafn” Selvik‘s curated Roadburn event on Friday, April 10 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
“It seems to me that ever since Iceland became independent from Denmark in 1944 the musical environment on the island has constantly and fearlessly been searching for its own identity. This has ultimately resulted in the identity itself becoming an enormous density of innovative musicians and bands that constantly push and challenge the boundaries and norms of genres within music, as we know it.

With an expression shaped by Iceland´s harsh yet stunningly beautiful nature Sólstafir also balance and convey this perfectly through their sound and also brilliantly reflecting native culture through their visual concept and native tongue. I foresee a great future for this group and it´s an honor to have them in our line-up!” — Einar “Kvitrafn” Selvik / Wardruna.
I’d been hearing about these Icelanders looking and sounding like mythological geyser outlaws, but I really got them during the Barge to Hell metal cruise in 2012. They were playing the outdoor pool stage at 10 in the morning, and it will always remain one of my most unique and grandiose concert experiences. As it happens, they have a new album, Ótta, that is absolutely spectacular, so even though Roadburn isn’t on a ship, I am confident this will be equally epic!” — Ivar Bjørnson / Enslaved



If you are a fan of stellar riffs and molasses-thick distorted guitar tone, Floor (Official) has everything you want in music. These Floridian sludge / pop pioneers get a lot of comparisons to lead singer / guitarist Steve Brooks other band, Torche — and rightfully so — with his instantly recognizable singing style and guitar tone.

Floor, however, is the essence of pure heaviness, with just a nod to the pop melodies that have spurred Torche on to crossover success. Come feel the downtuned thunder of Floor’s bassless power trio attack when Floor plays the main stage of the 013 venue at the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival on Thursday, April 9.

Chicago instrumental band BONGRIPPER will make a welcome return to the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival, set for April 9 – 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands, with two sets that feature their unique brand of devastating doom.

The first will see them play their latest album, Miserable, in its entirety at the main stage on Thursday, April 9. The second will be later that weekend (more info about the date to be determined).

Thanks-Stay Metal, Stay Brutal-\m/ -l-
