HOD: METAL SUCKS POSTS PIC OF HOD DISRESPECTING "DIMEBAG" (PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN) MURAL

FROM PANTERA: We are absolutely disgusted by this! We ask that all of you please show Dime &; his grave the respect he deserves. This conduct will not be tolerated and the authorities have been notified.



2/28/2015 5:47 EST USA UPDATE:
FROM NUCLEAR HELLFROST (INDIANA, USA):
The posts about us and to us are a complete surprise to us. Anything having to do with grave desecration was entirely a hoax put on by our former lead singer completely disconnected from the other members of the band. If you see Dimebag's grave you can see there is nothing carved into his grave, the only thing that exists is a photo of a piece of paper posted by the former member. We are strongly against any sort of homophobia, racism, or outright disrespect for a human being. We have nothing but the utmost respect for Dimebag and this is a misguided political publicity stunt that we were dragged into by a former member with an awful sense of humor. Nuclear Hellfrost as a band would like to apologize on this former member's behalf to not only Dimebag's fans, but most importantly his family. Again, the members of Nuclear Hellfrost had absolutely ZERO actual involvement in any of the alleged actions described by our former singer. Again, nothing but respect to Dimebag as a human being and condolences to his family. These are fabricated and contrived allegations on the internet that never happened in real life.

SIGH: REVEAL, ART WORKS and INFORMATION FOR "GRAVEWARD"

Japanese avant garde/black metal warriors SIGH have revealed the art work and information for the bands anticipated new release "GraveWard", due to be unleashed soon in 2015.









SIGH unleashed "In Somniphobia", 3/12/2012 via CANDLELIGHT RECORDS.



FROM SIGH:
OK, finally the long journey to finish up Sigh's new album "Graveward" is done. Here are the artwork and the information. Release date will be announced soon!!! Please spread the word!!!

2 and a half years were required to finish up Sigh's 10th studio full-length album "Graveward", which embraces everything from vintage keyboards such as Minimoog and Fender Rhodes to real orchestral instruments.
Each song ended up in having more than 100 tracks and the total amount of the sound data exceeded 100GB.
"Cinematic Horror Metal" should be the best phrase to describe this most layered grandiose album in Sigh's history.
Inspired by a little chat with Fabio Frizzi, well-known for his legendary works for Lucio Fulci's movies like "The Gates of Hell" and "The Beyond", "Graveward" was composed as a homage to Italian zombie flick classics, Hammer Horror Films, and King Diamond.
Of course the musical influence is as wide as ever including aforementioned horror soundtrack composers (Fabio Frizzi, Goblin, James Bernard, Jerry Gold Smith, and John Carpenter), and their roots (Schoenberg, Webern, Stravinsky, Bartok, and Charles Ives), left-of-center rock / metal artists (Celtic Frost, King Diamond, The Beach Boys, Magma and Frank Zappa), Free Jazz (Sun Ra, Albert Ayler, and Peter Brotzmann) and some Central Asian traditional music.
"Graveward" welcomes various guest musicians including Matthew Heafy from Trivium, Fred Leclercq from DragonForce, Niklas Kvarforth from Shining (Sweden) Sakis Tolis from Rotting Christ, Metatron from The Meads of Asphodel and so on. The cover artwork was done by Costin Chioreanu, who worked with Ihsahn, At the Gates, Deicide and Ulver.

ITP V.015 ONLY ONE PER COFFIN: R.I.P. LEONARD NIMOY (ACTOR-"SPOCK" STAR TREK)

It is with a broken heart, and with utter sadness we announce actor/director LEONARD NIMOY (ACTOR-"SPOCK" STAR TREK) has passed from end stage of chronic obstructive pulmonary at 83.









ITP V.015 EDITORS NOTE: ITP's editor is a big STAR TREK fan, as most of the technology featured on the revolutionary series are now household items. Not to mention the racial barriers STAR TREK broke, the first screen kiss between a black actress and white actor. 
LEONARD NIMOY was an excellent actor a great HUMAN, as he lived "long and prosper." R.I.P. SPOCK.
http://metalhammer.teamrock.com/features/2015-03-02/gallery-the-world-of-rock-and-metal-pays-tribute-to-leonard-nimoy
FROM GEORGE TAKEI (ACTOR DIRECTOR):
 Today, the world lost a great man, and I lost a great friend. We return you now to the stars, Leonard. You taught us to "Live Long And Prosper," and you indeed did, friend. I shall miss you in so many, many ways.

FROM HRC:
Today, HRC remembers longtime LGBT advocate Leonard Nimoy. In 2007, HRC was lucky enough to have Mr. Nimoy speak at our gala dinner in San Francisco. In his speech, he spoke about progress, education and diversity. You will be missed...

FROM ABC NEWS:
A single rose placed on Leonard Nimoy's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame following his death -- http://abcn.ws/1LRm05j ‪#‎LLAP‬

FROM NOH8: 

To an iconic actor who supported freedom and love for all. Rest in Peace Leonard Nimoy, and thank you. (via Freedom to Marry)

FROM BLACK ROCK COALITION:
The Black Rock Coalition acknowledges the passing of the great Leonard Simon Nimoy. Although we'd never met the man personally, the largess and dedication to the arts. He was an aggressive philanthropist who supported a great many charities (American Cancer Society, Beit T'Shuvah, Nimoy Foundation for The Arts, March of Dimes, American Foundation for Equal Rights, among others) but his devotion to art and developing artists was unique for someone of his stature. He sat on several boards and made generous contributions to numerous arts institutions, museums and performing arts centers. One was the refurbishing of the old Thalia movie theater on West 95th Street, which has long since been incorporated into Symphony Space and renamed the Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theater. The Thalia was one of the last independent art film theaters in NYC and was slated to be condemned, but Mr. Nimoy came COMPLETELY OUT OF POCKET to refurbish the space before it was annexed into Symphony Space. The BRC produced many shows at that venue, presenting Tamar-kali, 24-7 Spyz, Katreese Barnes, Krystle Warren, EARTHDRIVER ORG, and, of course, The BRC Orchestra. Our respect for Mr. Nimoy is profound and deep--in his transition, we lose a hell of a lot more than Spock... Rest In Power, sir. Your time here has truly been a blessing to us all.

FROM U.S. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA:
Pres. Obama on the passing of Leonard Nimoy:
"Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy. Leonard was a lifelong lover of the arts and humanities, a supporter of the sciences, generous with his talent and his time. And of course, Leonard was Spock. Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed, the center of Star Trek’s optimistic, inclusive vision of humanity’s future.
I loved Spock.
In 2007, I had the chance to meet Leonard in person. It was only logical to greet him with the Vulcan salute, the universal sign for “Live long and prosper.” And after 83 years on this planet – and on his visits to many others – it’s clear Leonard Nimoy did just that. Michelle and I join his family, friends, and countless fans who miss him so dearly today.”

ITP V.015 THE MUSIC BUSINESS: NEW RELEASES TO BE UNLEASHED GLOBALLY ON FRIDAYS SUMMER 2015?


According to BLABBERMOUTH.NET,  IFPI, FIM and many more artists musicians unions have"suggested" new releases should be unleashed on FRIDAYS (instead of TUESDAYS), aligned globally .





A TNS consumer research survey, conducted via seven large markets states 68% surveyed preferred new release dates FRIDAY OR SATURDAYS. 




http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/new-albums-to-be-released-on-fridays-globally-starting-this-summer/

ITP V.015 EDITORS NOTE: Funny, maybe I'm getting old, I remember back in the 80's and 90's waiting on line at record stores for physical releases as a first day buyer, those days are long gone. If, (as what I perceive the agenda of FRIDAY releases) can be consolidated as a ONE DATE release GLOBALLY, that what be cool. Considering this ideal, and multiple distributors for releases (outside of the nation or continent of indie artist records labels and international time zone differentials) provoke multiple release dates, this seems like a "cold day in hell" pipedream vs. contracted distribution deals. Or maybe the industry has worked it out and all will conform.
Not a bad idea to have ONE release date internationally, NORTH AMERICA can't envy EUROPEAN UNION for releases (first day buyers) and less of a motive for those to download illegally, pay expensive import prices or pay on E-BAY.
 Also consider pre-order as that concept is far more important (financially) to both labels and bands, as marketing and promotional campaigns are structured around it.  

CONSIDER and WORK WITH MUSIC AND METAL MEDIA: 
 

While I think the above survey is primarily consumer opinion oriented, and consider an 8 week advance promotional/marketing campaign for releases, FRIDAY releases shouldn't inconvenience the music media (internet), we'll be involved.. However, SATURDAY's, depending on time zone differentials may be pushing it.
Otherwise, for us in the metal/music media, FRIDAY is "media dump day". If music release dates are on FRIDAY, this means we'll be swamped with lots of press releases (as we are on MONDAYS), exclusives, music and goodies to kick off a weekend, plus a previous 8 week promotional/,marketing campaign. 
I assume, this survey (primary consumer) did not consider (nor take into account) the metal/music media is off (slow) for weekends (SATURDAY and SUNDAYS-unless a musician has a quotable, interviews, reviews or something awful or controversial happens on a weekend tour date).
FRIDAY music releases are an interesting concept, and frankly hilarious as the music industry is desperate and on its knees competing for consumer FRIDAY paychecks.
Otherwise, ONE release date, (MONDAY through FRIDAY, doesn't matter to me) will take one or two minutes off of every journal entry ITP writes as opposed to multiple release dates, ugh.
Also, (this is often a PR, MEDIA and fan nightmare) one global release date means lyric videos, and music videos can be viewed internationally on that specific date avoiding DMCA's, often (not factoring in almost mandatory music media exclusives) confusing regarding multiple distributors and multiple release dates.    
It's best for the music industry to keep multiple release dates within one day of each other (M-TU-W OR TU-W-TH OR W-TH-F).   
RECORD STORE DAY, BLACK FRIDAY, (consolidated with SPRING, SUMMER FESTIVAL, and EARLY FALL touring cycle) and early JANUARY though early NOVEMBER are relevant marketing and release dates.
REMEMBER, FRIDAY will be SATURDAY in AUSTRALIA, ASIA (CHINA), ARAB EMIRATES, INDIA, EGYPT and AFRICA. A 20- 24 hour time zone differential from, EST USA,  I know, I'm a lone writer, and time zones are important. 

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





WINGS OF METAL FESTIVAL 2015 9/10-12/2015 @ KATAKOMBES, MONTREAL, CANADA CONFIRM: SAVAGE MASTER, NEGATIVE PLANE, ANGEL WITCH, VULCAIN, MEFISTO

Promoters WINGS OF METAL FESTIVAL 2015, set to take place 9/10-12/2015 @ KATAKOMBES, MONTREAL, CANADA have confirmed SAVAGE MASTER, NEGATIVE PLANE, ANGEL WITCH, VULCAIN, MEFISTO.









More bands T.B.A. for WINGS OF METAL FESTIVAL 2015. 






FROM WINGS OF METAL FESTIVAL 2015 PROMOTERS:
Hailing from Louisville, Kentucky, USA, SAVAGE MASTER is the fourth band to be announced on the Wings of Metal 2015 line-up! These hard working Heavy Metal slaves have been going since 2013, and have released their very first full length, "Mask of the Devil", last year on Skol records. Their ancient style of true Heavy Metal mixes a rough rocking traditional style with speed metal, and a punishing female vocalist – reminding us of Leather Leone (Chastain), Debbie Gunn (Sentinel Beast) or even …Tim Baker of Cirith Ungol! These incredible newcomers will kick everybody’s ass… or perhaps whip it!
Originaires de Louisville aux Kentucky (USA), SAVAGE MASTER est le quatrième groupe à être annoncé sur le line-up du festival Wings of Metal 2015. Ces esclaves du Heavy Metal travaillent sur leur groupe depuis 2013, et ont sorti leur premier disque, "Mask of the Devil", l'an dernier sur Skol records. Leur style ancien de vrai Heavy Metal se marie parfaitement à la voix possédée de leur chanteuse Stacey “Savage” Peak, nous rappelant Leather Leone (Chastain), Debbie Gunn (Sentinel Beast) ou même ... Tim Baker de Cirith Ungol! Ce nouveau groupe est si incroyable live qu'ils botteront le cul de tout le monde... ou peut-être même le fouettera!

 The people behind Wings of Metal are bringing you Negative Plane this July 12th in Montreal! Don't miss this, it's their first Canadian appearance ever, and they play very seldomly!
***
The team behind wings of metal fait venir negative plane this 12 july in montreal! Do not miss it, it is their first canadian delivery and they play very rarely!



And we finally announce you the first headliners of the Wings of Metal 2015 line-up; a very important band that was formed in 1977 in London, England, and one of the biggest to have emerged from the NWOBHM movement: the one and only ANGEL WITCH! Not having played in North America since the 1990s, this very special and unique performance is going to be their first Canadian appearance ever. The band still is playing as magically as in the 80's – having released the KILLER "As Above, So Below" record in 2012. Seeing them at the Katacombes is going to be a dream come true for many of us. They might just burn the whole place down with their classic songs "Baphomet", "White Witch", "Angel of Death" and the fist pumping "Angel Witch"! Arghhh!
Et voilà le moment tant attendu du dévoilement d’une des têtes d’affiches de Wings of Metal 2015; un groupe très important qui a été formé en 1977 à Londres, en Angleterre, et l'un des plus grands groupes ayant émergé du mouvement NWOBHM. Le seul et unique... ANGEL WITCH! N’ayant pas joué en Amérique du Nord depuis les années ‘90, ce concert très spécial et unique sera leur première prestation canadienne. Le groupe joue encore avec magie comme dans les années 80, et ont sorti le superbe album “As Above, So Below” en 2012. Les voir aux Katacombes va être un rêve devenu réalité pour beaucoup d'entre nous. Ils vont carrément faire sauter la place avec leurs anthèmes "Baphomet", "White Witch", "Angel of Death" et le glorieux "Angel Witch"! Arghhh!"


And our second confirmed band at Wings of Metal is the French speed metal trio VULCAIN! Formed in Paris in 1981 by the Puzio brothers, they released seven records - among them "Rock'n'Roll Secours" (1984), one of the best heavy/speed metals albums ever recorded - before disbanding in 1998. The band reunited in 2008, visited Montreal in 2010, and played a full-on high energy set for the great pleasure of everyone who attended. They released the superb "V8" in 2013 and are now ready to return and destroy our necks once again! Rejoice!
Et notre deuxième groupe confirmé au festival Wings of Metal est le trio de speed métal français VULCAIN! Formés à Paris en 1981, les maîtres de la foudre ont sorti sept albums dont le chef-d'œuvre "Rock'n'Roll Secours" (1984), avant de se dissoudre en 1998. Le groupe s'est reformé dix ans plus tard, a joué son premier concert outre-mer à Montréal en 2010, et a sorti le superbe album "V8" en 2013. Leur prestation montréalaise fut tellement électrisante et légendaire qu'ils n'ont pas le choix que de revenir nous détruire les cous encore une fois! Réjouissons-nous!


We are extremely honoured and excited to announce the first band of the 2015 edition of Wings of Metal... the first ever live show by the Swedish MEFISTO! After Bathory, Mefisto are Sweden’s oldest and most legendary death/black metal. Formed back in 1984 under the name Torment, they created evil-sounding death/black metal and pushed it to the limit. They released only two demos in 1986 (“Megalomania” and “The Truth”) then vanished into obscurity... until now! The horde is now back in action and writing new material that shall conjure up evil once again!
C’est un immense honneur pour nous de vous annoncer le premier groupe de l'édition 2015 de Wings of Metal... le premier concert à vie des Suédois MEFISTO! Après Bathory, Mefisto est le plus ancien et le plus légendaire groupe de death/black métal de la Suède. Formé en 1984 sous le nom de Torment, ils ont repoussé leur death/black métal malsain jusqu’aux limites de l’extrême. Le groupe a sorti deux démos en 1986 ("Megalomania" et "The Truth"), puis a disparu dans l'obscurité ... jusqu'à maintenant! La horde est maintenant de retour et travaille présentement sur un nouveau disque.

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

So … wait, it will be the very first show ever of this original line-up in Canada. All in all Martin Shirenc and his boys will perform the classic Pungent Stench material like "Extreme Deformity", "Blood, Pus & Gastric Juice", "Splatterday Night Fever" and many others for this special occasion only – Obscene Extreme North America 2015!!!

The day Pungent Stench disbanded in 2007 marked the loss of one of death metal's most unique originators...and the calls for a reunion have not ceased ever since.

Although dissappointed by the sudden split, founding member singer/guitarist Martin „El Cochino“ Schirenc continued to release music and play concerts with various other projects, before he finally agreed to attend a Pungent Stench tribute show in Istanbul, where he played several songs from his former band under the moniker „The Church of Pungent Stench“. Supported by Mike Gröger (Hollenthon) on drums, as well as Hakan Nurcanlı (Art Diktator) on bass, this 2011 concert was a huge success. Subsequently, Schirenc received numerous offers from various promoters to also bring this show to other cities.

It wasn’t until 2013 that Schirenc finally agreed to take „The Church of Pungent Stench“ on the road to grace stages worldwide. The new line up continued to feature Mike on drums, but also introduced a new bass player, Danny Vacuum, known for his involvement with bands like Genocide S.S., Necrony, and The Accidents. The first show took place at the Eindhoven Metal Meeting and only marked the beginning of a successful series of appearances at the biggest festivals in Europe (Graspop Metal Meeting, Hellfest, Brutal Assault, Bang Your Head, Barroselas Metalfest, Neurotic Deathfest) and the USA (Maryland Deathfest, 70.000 Tons of Metal).

Due to a legal dispute, the band was forced to change it’s name and is now touring as „Schirenc plays Pungent Stench“. However, the mission remains the same: bringing the music of Austria’s sickest band back to life and keeping the flame burning by refusing to praise the ashes!!!

TOOL: SEND UPDATE


California progressive hard rock pioneers TOOL have sent an update as the band is currently writing new material to be recorded soon. 







TOOL unleashed "10, 000 Days" 5/2/2006 via VOLCANO ENTERTAINMENT.




FROM TOOL:
From Mjk: "I've been making regular trips to LA to check on the writing progress of my Tool brethren. Things are progressing nicely. Slowly, but definitely progressing. Nothing is recorded yet, but the guys are confident that the pieces are coming together swimmingly and will be ready for me to begin writing melodies and content 'soon'. I'm as anxious to get this album completed as everyone else. But as history will show, you can't rush these gents. Patience is Gold in this Sound Mine. In the meantime, as always, other things are simultaneously occurring. Life is too short not to create something with every breath we draw."

ITP V.015 TECH SAVY: TOTAL WIPES MUSIC GROUP SPAMS FALSE DMCA TO DOMAINS

German based digital music group TOTAL WIPES MUSIC GROUP has publicly apologized after spamming hundreds of (non infringing) domains (including SKYPE and JAVA) with false DMCA complaints regarding (you guessed it) unrelated URL's over the word DOWNL**D.




After a public outcry, TOTAL WIPES MUSIC GROUP has publicly apologized to all domains and url's adversely affected stating a bug caused the inaccurate DMCA spam (most likely a mis programmed copy right bot). 

ITP V.015 EDITORS NOTE:
Ridiculous. Of course two of the "allegedly" infringing URL's are JAVA and SKYPE as I hope both software companies sue and "wipe" the floor with this asinine copy right bot. The same goes for RELAPSE RECORDS copy right bot RECORD NANNY, catching unrelated URL's for false copy right claims is bogus and unethical, bots like this should be black listed. Totally shameful. The copy right bot company (Total Wipes) claims a "bug" provoked the false DMCA complaints, most likely, faulty software bot programming. https://www.techdirt.com/…/total-wipes-decides-word-downloa…

  http://www.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/2wvdpj/total_wipes_decides_the_word_download_means/

FROM TOTAL WIPES MUSIC GROUP:
Due to technical servers problems on the first february week our script sent hundreds DMCA to hundreds domains not related at all any copyrights of our contents.
It was our fault, no doubts about it. The DMCA is a serious issue and it must be carefully managed.
We contacted most of these domains but it was too late, the DMCA had already been sent. Google rejected most of these wrong DMCA but we totally understand the damage of it for small and medium companies that have to remove and manage them manually. It was a bug just on that week. However, our Antipiracy system has been taken down a week ago in order to add more improvements and avoid any future sending of wrong DMCA.
Our apologies again for all sites involved and thanks to all persons that reported us the issue.
Cheers
+_+
TW Team


Finally we got the updated report of all our DMCA sent on that tragic february week:
1,3% not delivered
2,02% wrong delivered
0,67% right delivered
97,29% rejected

Detailed list availbale as private message.
That doesn't make our anti piracy system a better tool but almost 100% of involved websites won't have any trouble because us at least.
As said we have taken down the service and adding all filters needed for avoiding any further trouble.

Cheers

In the aftermath of the great battle at Uppsala fields and after some time has passed, the Battalions of the World hunt down White Christ to challenge him personally. Needless to say he needs to be faced with the atrocities he is responsible for. But just like most cowards it seems that he fled to higher ground. The Hammer Battalions are ready, waiting eagerly...... Where is your god now?”

German technical death metal warriors DEFEATED SANITY have posted  "GENEROSITY OF THE DECEASED", a new track from the bands SPLIT with MORTAL DECAY, unleashed 2/2015 via GOATGRIND RECORDS.

DEFEATED SANITY unleashed "Passages Into Deformity",  2/5/2013 via WILLOWTIP RECORDS.







FROM DEFEATED SANITY:
We have only 5 copies of the 7" left and felt it was time to make this song available for the non-vinyl lovers too.
Everyone who bought the vinyl online will also receive a free download code for this very soon.
Thanks for supporting us!!

http://defeatedsanity.bandcamp.com/…/generosity-of-the-dece…

Wow guys, the amount of downloads for the song already exceeded expections, incredible!! Can't thank you enough for the continued support!
For the people wondering why it doesn't sound like a typical DS song: I should have mentioned that this song was written as part of the "simple" half for our next album. So no tech, no prog, just grinds and grooves.
There will be more of that kind on the next album next to the contrary second half. More news coming soon.

 The 7" split vinyl with Mortal Decay,released by Goatgrind Records is finally in stock. It contains a new song by each band. The Defeated Sanity tune is called *Generosity of the Deceased" which we already played live and released a hoodie of. A new "black on black"
style shirt with that art is coming up by the end of the week. If you are interested in this too, wait a few days with your order!
