GHOST WIN SWEDISH GRAMMIS FOR BEST HARD ROCK/METAL ALBUM…

INFESTISSUMAM is the band’s second studio album, produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Queens Of The Stone Age, Alice in Chains) in Nashville, TN; the record debuted at #1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart in the US, where SPIN cited it as, "one of the most anticipated heavy metal albums of 2013”.
In addition to this, Ghost have announced their involvement in Sonisphere UK 2014, joining a three-day event headlined by The Prodigy, Iron Maiden & Metallica, and running from July 4th-6th.
Ghost will continue to spread their message via rock hymns that glorify and glamorise the disgusting and the sacrilegious.
“It is an honour to be playing at the unholy ground that is Knebworth, where so many classic rock concerts have taken place throughout the years,” says A Nameless Ghoul.
More UK touring plans will be revealed shortly.
Sparzanza: The new album 'Circle' out on March 28th
The stygian Swedish hard rockers release their 7th album 'Circle' at the end of March. The overall sound of the album is the most natural sounding in their discography. The drum sound is in your face without being unnatural dry. The use of alternate tunings on the guitars has created a different sound than on the previous albums and the dark feel that was present on the”Death is Certain, Life is Not” album is more subtle this time around, “Circle” is in overall the most brutal album in the SPARZANZA catalog. It has a rawness and special edge to it that we are really happy to have achieved.
What’s inside the Circle?
It is also the most varied and dynamic album SPARZANZA have ever produced.
Not only that it contains the most brutal-and rawest-songs-and-grooves-that-will-make-heads-bang they have ever written, it also shows a different side on their songwriting skills that is different from what’s been done before. Although it still has the SPARZANZA trade mark sense of melodies. Fredrik Weileby has outdone himself with the most impressive vocal performances ever.
The first sample of the album is the single and video 'Underneath My Skin'. A song with melodies most bands would die for. The single basically has everything that you could expect from a great SPARZANZA track – just a little bit more in every aspect…. Watch the video here.
The 11 gloomy pins pricking your soul are called:
1. Bradycardia (cd only)
2. Pine Barrens
3. Underneath My Skin
5. Into The Unknown
6. The Contract
7. Enemy Of My Enemy
8. As I Go Away
10. Death Don't Spare No Lives
11. Do What Thou Wilt
NEWSTED RELEASE SINGLE ‘AS THE CROW FLIES’…
WATCH 'AS THE CROW FLIES' BELOW...
‘As The Crow Flies’ is taken from the debut Newsted album, ‘Heavy Metal Music’, out now on Spinefarm Records. Since parting ways with Metallica, Jason has lent his signature skills to a selection of artists, including Voivod & Ozzy, but ‘As The Crow Flies’ (complete with brand new video) is very much his own work. The groove is immense, and the vocals are his, too. Heavy Metal Music, indeed!

“Comatose was written in and out of various lucid dreams and starred a very naked, Aphrodite-esque Brit Marling and myself – she would lead me though all sorts of psychedelic realities… we’d talk, learn about the universe, feel, play and I never really wanted to wake up…” – Luis Felber, Turbogeist guitarist
Single artwork for ‘Comatose’ has been created by Alex Mahood – the artist responsible for designing the sleeve of Turbogeist’s ‘Alien Girl’ single.
On the live front, Turbogeist will join Radkey on their 8-date UK tour starting on Feb 24th in Birmingham and finishing at the world renowned 100 Club in London.
“Turbogeist have been busy rehearsing for this upcoming tour with Radkey and Lyger; it’s going to be so much fun! We know Lyger and are looking forward to hanging out with Radkey. I’ve heard that in the land of the free they are totally under-age for drinking and debauchery, but here in our fair English isle anything goes! Here comes the whiskey train! Stopping at Blackout Central and waking up in Orgy Lane! It’s gonna be a rage-athon!”
