The Defiled

THE DEFILED ANNOUNCE MINI-ALBUM RELEASE VIA IN AT THE DEEP END RECORDS

London Metallers THE DEFILED have announced the release of their mini-album, 1888, via In At The Deep End Records. They checked in with the following statement:

“We’re incredibly pleased to announce that we’ve just signed up with In At The Deep End Records. The label’s track-record says it all really and we couldn’t be happier than to be associated with a label that’s released records by the likes of Gallows, Sylosis, Shaped By Fate, Romeo Must Die, Send More Paramedics, Architects and the list goes on. To release our debut CD through a label that is run off of a passion for good music is a huge privilege and we can’t thank them enough for helping us out with the release.”

“Our debut EP 1888 is now officially due for release on October 5th and we can’t wait to get it out into everyone’s grubby little hands!”

The 5 track EP was recorded at Metropolis Studios (in a room sandwiched between Iron Maiden and Alicia Keys) and mixed at the studio where AC/DC recorded Back in Black, on the desk used to mix Radioheads OK Computer and has original artwork by the very awesome D.W. Frydendall. The countdown begins …..

The Defiled play Sonisphere Festival Knebworth on Sunday 2nd August. A full UK tour will be announced shortly.

Sonata Arctica

SONATA ARCTICA – Reveal lyrics to “Flag In The Ground“

To inspire those fans who will be taking part in the SONATA ARCTICA cover artwork contest, SONATA ARCTICA have revealed the lyrics!

More infos on www.nuclearblast.de or www.sonataarctica.info

The band is already busy going through the first sketches that came in, so, you better gear up and get your Sonata cover done!

The album “The Days Of Grays” will be out September 21st.

Flag In The Ground

PROLOGUE
“In the days when lands were few, and man sometimes had no chance but sell his soul to his landlord to make a living…
In far and away country, they gave acres of land away for free, to all able to claim it… Ships sailed across the great seas, fortunes were made and dreams shattered…
Sometimes couples were torn apart,
for all they could afford…was one ticket.”

Leaving my life behind
My young love and the unborn
Only have a lock of her hair…
and burning love inside

After forty work-filled days and sleepless nights,
the sails are lit by the lights of Boston
…and here we go…
Off the ship! Towards the adventure,
the one to define our lives.
Daily grind and a tiny room.

“I got here safe, Love.
I have an address, until spring, then I shall race for the land,
hope to hear from you soon…”

Her letter reads…

“Please let me know everything's alright
Thinking about you, 'though you're out of sight
every night, when I'm turning in, my tears find me.
Please hurry, dear, come back and rescue me…”

“Now that I have made the dollars we need for the dream.
The best horse I've ever seen,
a carriage and everything I need…
I will make my way to the great unknown
Every moment I wish you were here with me now…

“Please let me know everything's alright….”

“No, I'm not a stranger, among the people in here…
Yet I have never felt so alone…
At high noon the sound will boom,
and I will start racing for the
land we can call home.”

“I stuck my…
flag in the ground, screaming 'n shouting,
I've never felt so proud, Love!
We are free from eternal serfdom!
I'm gonna bring you home, my light!”

“nine, eight, seven, six, counting the days. SOLO!”
“five, four, three, two, together forever! SOLO!”

I made my way into the great unknown
Land by the river, and a new built home.
I am the land and the land is me
Freedom is everything and we are free

I made my way into the great unknown
Land by the river, and a new built home.
Every night, when I'm looking at the full moon rising
I hold you and know that we are free…

The 69 Eyes

THE 69 EYES – Launch fan tattoo contest

On the new 69 Eyes video “Dead Girls Are Easy” you can point out the band's symbolic “69 Eyes ankh” tattoos on people's skin. The 69 Eyes is one of those bands whose fans show their loyalty by tattooing the band's symbol on them. Do you have one? Share it with us and win very special and exclusive prizes such as the special 2LP of “Back In Blood”.

Commented The 69 Eyes singer Jyrki 69:

“One of the main guidelines for making “Back In Blood” was our producer's idea to make an album that our fans wanted to hear from us. Matt Hyde wanted us to make a record that our fans have been loyally waiting for. “Back In Blood” is first and foremost made for The 69 Eyes FANS – for those who have been there with us for all these years, with or without our tattoos, vampire blood starting to run in their undead hearts when we come to the town…”
- Jyrki 69 / The 69 Eyes

Pls send photos with your THE 69 EYES tattoos to the69eyes@nuclearblast.de

The album “Back In Blood“ is out in The UK on August 31st via Nuclear Blast

Controversial Crunk-core pioneers BrokeNCYDE have announced an exclusive one off show in London. The band checked in with this message:

“UK! brokeNCYDE is coming back to the UK and we can’t wait. We had such an awesome time last time but didn't get to play London so we’re really excited about finally playing the capital of England. Come down to the Barfly on 24th August and get your crunk on with us. See you there!”

Slaves To Gravity

AWARD-WINNING London-based rockers Slaves To Gravity will have their debut album ‘Scatter The Crow’ made available through Spinefarm Records UK on August 10th 2009.

Originally self-released on the band’s own Gravitas label in March 2008, ‘Scatter The Crow’ consists of 13 tracks written over the past two years. Featuring the singles/videos ‘Big Red’, ‘Meantime’ and ‘Mr. Regulator’ (all of which charted Top 5 in the UK Rock Chart), ‘Scatter…’ is a harmonious blend of the contemporary and the classic, drawing inspiration from both sides of the Atlantic.

“Hooks the size of Peru and a genuine sense of songwriting style.” – Kerrang!

“Every one of the 13 tracks could be a massive hit.” – Classic Rock

Slaves To Gravity formed in 2006 after the break-up of hard-rock outfit The Ga*Ga*s. Comprising of vocalist/guitarist Tommy Gleeson, bassist Toshi Ogawa and drummer Jason T, the trio were soon joined by Mark Verney of Ariel-X fame on guitar, and have since been building a loyal and ever-growing fan-base on the UK rock circuit.

Following extensive UK tours guesting with acts such as Aiden, Bullet For My Valentine, Brigade and more, as well as an appearance at the prestigious Download Festival in 2008, STG were voted both ‘Best British Newcomer’ at the 2008 Kerrang! Awards and ‘Best New Band’ at the 2008 Rock Sound Awards.
