LADY BEAST Enters Studio To Record “Vicious Breed” Album

Pittsburgh, PA NWOBHM-inspired upstarts LADY BEAST will be entering +/- Studios in early September to record their third full-length album, “Vicious Breed”, which will also serve as the band’s first release for Italy’s Cruz Del Sur Music. Jason Jouver will be handling production duties; Karl Dahmer has been enlisted to create the album’s cover.

 

Comments guitarist Twiz: “Musically, I’d say it’s a continuation of the ‘Metal Immortal’ EP. Some of the songs were written at the same time as the songs on the EP. I think it’s our most dynamic and diverse album to date. We have fast songs (‘Vicious Breed’), heavy songs (‘Lone Hunter’), melodic songs, a ballad (‘Always With Me’), rockers (‘Get Out Of My Way’), and an instrumental. I’m probably most proud of the songs on this than I am of other stuff I’ve written”

“I am very proud of the melodies and lyrical content on this album,” adds vocalist Deborah Levine. “I have a bit of a formula when I start writing lyrics. The music and feel of the song obviously help the direction I turn, but also I like to have a skeleton of the same idea for each album. The song of an epic story, the hopeful song, the metal ripper, etc. Each is important as it builds the album as a whole. On ‘Vicious Breed’, we have our first ballad, on which it will be fun to slow it down and have people hear a different side of us.”

“Vicious Breed” is set for release on Oct 13, 2017, after which, LADY BEAST hopes to embark on their most expansive run of shows to date.

“We are excited to release our third full-length, but first release with Cruz Del Sur,” concludes the band. “This is by far our greatest album yet and we are excited to get out there and play it for the world. We have goals of more international touring in the next year. Europe is our biggest goal right now and we are networking as we speak trying to plan a LADY BEAST European tour, as well as touring in the States and writing new music!”

MAUSOLEUM GATE Releases ‘Solomon’s Key’ Lyric Video; New Album Pre-Orders Available

 

Up-and-coming Finnish metal revivalists MAUSOLEUM GATE have released the lyric video for “Solomon’s Key”. The song is culled from their forthcoming sophomore “Into A Dark Divinity” album, which is set for a September 8 release by Cruz Del Sur Music.

Stocked with the band’s now-trademark guitar harmonies along with the theatrical, stratospheric voice of V-P Varpula, “Solomon’s Key” is a total throwback to when classy songwriting and imagery ruled above all else. Adorned with images from “Into A Dark Divinity’s” album cover, the lyric video for “Solomon’s Key” is just a small glimpse of the majesty that awaits.

“Into A Dark Divinity” is the follow-up to MAUSOLEUM GATE’s critically-acclaimed 2014 self-titled debut. Like its predecessor, “Into A Dark Divinity” capitalizes upon MAUSOLEUM GATE’s inventive blend of DEEP PURPLE-like dynamics and IRON MAIDEN guitar interplay, all topped off with the high-wire vocals of Varpula. Singular, alluring and able to captivate audiences of all varieties, MAUSOLEUM GATE represent a new front in authentic vintage metal.

ARGUS Premieres ‘You Are The Curse’ Lyric Video; Prepares For European Tour With HIGH SPIRITS

Comments vocalist Brian “Butch” Balich: “‘You Are The Curse’ was the first song we wrote for ‘From Fields Of Fire’Dave [Watson, guitar] brought it in and it immediately fit. I knew we had exciting things coming for the album when it came together. It’s classic ARGUS and a good song to introduce ‘From Fields of Fire’ to our friends worldwide. It’s an up-tempo, rhythmically aggressive but melodic song shot through with dark undertones. Lyrically, this song deals with the idea that sometimes we need look no further than ourselves for why things go wrong in our lives…as you sow so shall you reap. It’s been a live mainstay for about a year-and-a-half and one we expect to play often.”

 

To coincide with the release of “From Fields Of Fire”, ARGUS is embarking on a nine-date European tour with Chicago high-energy rock heroes HIGH SPIRITS. The tour kicks off September 8 in Dornbirn, Austria, culminating with their September 16 appearance at the Storm Crusher festival in Püchersreuth, Germany.

 

HIGH SPIRITS have been friends of ours for several years and a band we all really dig a lot,” says Balich. “We are very excited that this came together—it’s going to be a great show for the fans of both bands —the energy HIGH SPIRITS and ARGUS put out on stage is very high, and I think we complement and balance each other as well. It truly is a can’t-miss show. We’ll be playing material from the new album, of course, but expect to hear something from every album including a couple songs we haven’t played in a long time. All of us in ARGUS cannot wait to return to Europe. It’s something we look forward to doing every year and this trip is going to be a blast getting to hang out with and watch HIGH SPIRITS every night, too!”
