DARK FUNERAL Announces Addition Of Singer HELJARMADR, Bassist NATT
Long-running Swedish black metallers DARK FUNERAL have announced the addition of frontman Heljarmadr and bassist Natt to the group's ranks. With roots in the second half of the '90s black metal scene and with tentacles in bands such as highly respected GRÁ, DOMGÅRD and CURSED 13 comes Heljarmadr, a raw force from the underground. Known as a fierce frontman, both on stage and on recordings with his previous bands, he will now step up and claim a seat in the throne room of DARK FUNERAL to inflict deep scars and infect wounds in the black metal scene. The name Heljarmadr derives from the old Scandinavian languages, simply meaning "a man belonging to hell." With a lot of experience in the arts of creating dark satanic music, he will play a key role in shaping the future vocal and lyrical direction of DARK FUNERAL. Expect nothing but excellence, pure darkness and uncompromising evil! Treading into this world, Natt has always had a strong, deep interest in music and the arts of the great unknown. Spending time during the nights, exploring the Swedish ancient forests, avoiding the common mass that wanders this simplistic world, made his relations and visions to that which lies beyond, stronger. Before DARK FUNERAL, Natt was a member of the black/thrash metal band ANGREPP where he met his now-close friends Adrian Lawson (ANGREPP, IXXI) and Fredrik Widigs (THE UGLY, MARDUK) and later on joined the deeply devoted black metal act WITHERSHIN. Says Natt: "Since the beginning of my time, here, in this world, there has always been, a strong connection, towards the isolated parts of the soul, a connection within and beyond. A connection to what can not be seen, nor heard. To everything and nothing. To what is, and what is not, and that which lies between. Outside the borders of this life. Beyond, yet within the acausal flame, in the night, I dwell, beyond the broken circle, outside of the causal mundane, yet not."DARK FUNERAL's new video, "Nail Them To The Cross", can be seen below. The song was recorded at Dugout Studios in Uppsala, Sweden and was mixed and mastered by Daniel Bergstrand. The clip was directed by Owe Lingvall. A strictly limited seven-inch single including "Nail Them To The Cross" and another new track will be released in early 2015. In 2012, DARK FUNERAL signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records.DARK FUNERAL celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2013 with a number of festival appearances all over Europe. They were joined at the gigs by their "classic" vocalist Emperor Magus Caligula, who left the band on good terms for personal reasons in 2010. Formed in 1993 by Lord Ahriman, the band quickly gained massive underground support by being one of the most ferocious and fastest black metal acts on earth. Since then, they have spread their unholy gospel over the whole world and build up a loyal cult following from the coldest parts of the northern hemisphere to the hottest hell of Asia. After an extensive and exhausting tour through Asia and Australia in late 2012, DARK FUNERAL parted ways with vocalist Nachtgarm.

SLIPKNOT's COREY TAYLOR: 'Acting Has Always Been Something That I've Wanted To Do'
Daily Dead conducted an interview with SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor after the October 22 world premiere of "Fear Clinic"— the new horror flick which marks Taylor's first featured role in a film — at the Screamfest Horror Film Festival in Hollywood, California. You can now watch the chat below.Taylor stated about the experience of making "Fear Clinic": "Acting has always been something that I've wanted to do. Obviously, I've dabbled in it a little bit with music videos and everything, and with every music video, when that opportunity arises, I try to push it a little more. But I've wanted to do a full-on acting gig, where it's a character who's not me. So, yeah, I was a little envious of [SLIPKNOT's] Clown [when he landed a role in 'The Devil's Carnival'], because we were both pitched that — I was actually supposed to be in that — and my schedule was such that I couldn't do it. So I was rally bummed, but I was stoked for Clown that he got to do it. So that kind of made me take a look around and go, 'Man, when the right opportunity arises, I'm definitely gonna try and go for it.' So, luckily, I got to do this.""Fear Clinic" stars Robert Englund, best known as Freddy Krueger in "A Nightmare On Elm Street", as Dr. Andover, a doctor who treats patients afflicted with crippling phobias by inducing hallucinations inside an invention he calls the Fear Chamber. In the film, which began life in 2009 as a five-episode series for the web site FearNet.com, Taylor plays a clinic employee named Bauer who struggles to keep things under control when all hell breaks loose. The movie centers around one traumatic event that induces phobias in a group of different people."Fear Clinic" will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on February 10, 2015.

KISS' PAUL STANLEY Returns To IBANEZ GUITARS
In 1976, Ibanez approached KISS frontman Paul Stanley to collaborate on a signature guitar that would become the instrument with which he would be forever associated. Now, for the first time since 1996, Paul and Ibanez have reunited to reissue three exciting new versions of the original Paul Stanley Signature Model. "Renewing my collaboration with Ibanez feels like going home to where it all started," commented Stanley. "The guitars we created remain iconic and we will celebrate them and more as we move forward into our future together." "We're very excited to be partnering again with Paul Stanley," said Ibanez artist relations manager Mike Taft. "It’s been an amazing year for both Paul and the band, including the release of his best-selling autobiography, the band's long-overdue induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, and the ongoing world tour to commemorate their 40th anniversary together. I couldn't think of a better time for Paul to reunite with Ibanez. Along with their distinctive styling, these historic instruments have proven themselves on albums and in concert worldwide, where their sound has made them sought after by guitarists for decades."paulstanleyibanez_638
EXTREME's NUNO BETTENCOURT Says RIHANNA Gig Is 'Really Challenging'
Guitar Interactive magazine recently conducted an interview with EXTREME guitarist Nuno Bettencourt. You can now watch the chat in three parts below. Asked about how he landed the gig as the guitarist in pop superstar Rihanna's band and whether he can foresee himself doing that for a long time to come, Nuno responded: "I'm hoping I don't have to do it anymore. Not towards Rihanna, of course, but it's really time consuming. "I've never done another gig where I was kind of, like… not my own, actually, really. And I'd been asked through the years to do stuff, even with not just necessarily pop artists but with other rock bands, and I've always declined. "We had just finished an EXTREME tour and a friend of mine, who is a musical director, Tony Bruno, he hit me up. He goes, 'I know I've asked you ten times already, but I know you're in L.A., we're in L.A. Ri saw some of your videos. Would you consider doing…?' He just said 'three months' of this promo. And I was, like, you know what?! I'm in my forties, I've been sticking to my guns for so long and not doing anything else. 'Cause at first I said, 'No. Why would I wanna do it? There's really no guitar in that stuff.' And he said, 'Well, that's the thing. She wants it to be a lot heavier live.' And I'm, like, 'So I get to do what I do.' And he goes, 'Completely. Your rig…' [And I said], 'I get to ruin every one of her songs?' And he was, like, 'Yeah.' So I thought that would be fun." He continued: "It's interesting. Anybody who's come to see that show, even from the perspective of journalists or magazines, whether it be in Germany or in the States, they come and interview me, but they don't plan on staying for the show. And I always say, 'Just stay. Just stay for a couple of songs.' Then they stay for the night and then they always end up sending me a text or an e-mail message apologizing, [saying that] they didn't know that there was that much musicianship going on. The drummer's from Stevie Wonder. It's, like, it's a real band, and nothing's on playback. We take the songs and we really play them; they're nothing like [they are on] the album. "When people ask me, 'Why would you do something that you can do with your eyes closed?' And it's a difficult gig. The hats that you have to wear, feel-wise… You go from a basic pop song like 'Umbrella' to to reggae song to a club track to even, like, a punk song and R&B stuff. So the amount of different textures and feels, and to have to play along with these incredible musicians who hear everything, it's definitely not a punch-in-the-clock-type situation for me. Live, it keeps you busy. It's one thing doing your own thing, it's your own shit… It sounds crazy, but it's really challenging. It really is." Nuno added: "Whatever people's perceptions are of whatever Rihanna is, it's definitely a different animal live — completely different. At first, even when I went to work with her, I was, like, 'Can she really sing?' A lot of times with the singers you hear now, there's a lot of that Auto-Tune element and you don't know who can really sing. But when I went to rehearsal, I could not believe how well she sang, and I could not believe how well she sings live. "It was really messed up, because nothing is on track except for some bells and whistles sounds, and explosions — just sound-effects stuff — but every review was saying her vocals were on track, and none of it is. But it's incredible. I was actually going, 'Wow!' There's actually great background singers that they get purposely to somewhat sound like her vibe, and it was amazing. And it actually made me realize, even when you can do it, and you can sing, and she is, they're still telling her that she can't do it."
CHRIS BRODERICK On His Decision To Leave MEGADETH: 'It Was Simply Time'
During an interview with SiriusXM's Jose Mangin on last night's (Wednesday, December 17) edition of Liquid Metal's "666-LIVE" call-in show, former MEGADETH guitarist Chris Broderick spoke for the first time about his decision to leave the band and revealed the initial details of a new project that he has launched with another former MEGADETH member, drummer Shawn Drover. A few excerpts from the chat were transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET and follow below. On why he left MEGADETH:Chris: "Well, it's not gonna be as exciting as anybody would want. It's not gonna be some huge drama thing or anything like that. It was simply time [for me to leave]. I'd been in [MEGADETH] for seven years and I really wanted to just be able to have that kind of creative freedom to write anything I wanted to, to go anywhere with it that I wanted to and just kind of direct my own course. "The way I kind of think of it is it's kind of not unlike a chef that works at a restaurant that decides that he wants to open up his own restaurant or maybe a lawyer that wants to start his own firm or something like that. It was a great time to move on. And I think, talking with Shawn, Shawn was in the exact same place. We had talked about it and we had thought about it for a little bit. And so when Shawn quit [on November 25], it was, like, 'Whoah! What happened?' I mean, I knew that we had talked about it, but he did it; he actually just left the band… "[Shawn and I] talk all the time, and so I knew that he had thought about it and I had been thinking about it. But as soon as he quit, I knew he had made the right decision. Because MEGADETH is going to be ramping up for their next CD recording cycle, and if you've got trepidation about being a part of something, you don't wanna commit to that process, the writing process, and then bail on 'em. And so when Shawn quit, that instantly became clear to me. So I talked to [David] Ellefson [MEGADETH bassist] and then I went and I talked to Jackson Guitars, my endorsement, and Fractal Audio Systems, and they were all so supportive. They were, like, 'Dude, we've got your back. You do what you've gotta do.' So I decided that night after Shawn did it, I was, like, 'It is the right time,' because MEGADETH is getting ready to move into their next recording cycle. I mean, if there is a good time to leave, that was it." On the reaction from Dave when Chris told him he was leaving MEGADETH:Chris: "He was definitely disappointed. It was, obviously… It's not something that he wanted to hear or anything like that. The one thing that you wanna know is, in a way, we were hired guns, so…" On whether he thought he was gonna be part of MEGADETH for a long time when he first joined the band:Chris: "When I first started, I didn't know what to expect. You're going into something with fresh eyes and fresh ears, and you're just going for it. And it was great, it was awesome, it was great for my career. I got to play 'Big Four' shows [with METALLICA, SLAYER and ANTHRAX], I played across the world, it was an awesome thing at the time. But there comes to be a point where I'm, like, I wanna be musically creative for me, and that's really where I wanted to go." On his musical future: Chris: "Well, one of the things that I've always wanted to do is a solo CD, so I'm definitely gonna be working on that in 2015. But one of the things that I've really recently become very excited about is, through talking with Shawn Drover, we've talked about how we had all this material that was never gonna get released, all these killer, heavy riffs that we had written and stuff, and so we just decided, 'Hey, why don't we put the stuff out? Why don't we form a band and get out these killer riffs, just to see what people think?' So we formed a band, we're working with a killer singer — he's awesome — and we've got record labels that have made some good offers on the table, and we're really excited about where that's gonna go." On whether the new band has a name: Chris: "Here's the funny thing: we have many names. But the problem today is that there are so many bands out there that the first thing we've gotta do is run them by trademark and make sure that we can get… We don't wanna run into the 'GHOST' and the 'GHOST B.C.' issue, right?! So we're looking into trademarks on the names, and I would love to tell you, but we wanna save some of it for our official press release, and we'll talk about the singer then, and we'll have the record label on board by then." On whether the musical ideas that are being used in the new band are things that were originally presented to MEGADETH and were turned down or if they are brand new compositions:Chris: "Some of them were presented, but then some of them also… I'd be, like, 'Oh, this isn't appropriate for MEGADETH, their sound.' I have a tendency to write very complex stuff, and so I've gotta watch it when I write and submit for MEGADETH under that kind of… I wanna make sure it's not too complex and too crazy and all over the place. So those are the things that I would have held back." Broderick joined MEGADETH in late 2007 as the replacement for Glen Drover, who left the group in order to focus on family life.Chris has been playing guitar since he was eleven years old and had been teaching for 15 years prior to joining MEGADETH. Styles range from classical, rock, blues, and jazz. He started taking lessons at 14 years of age studying guitar as well as voice, violin, and piano. Chris has a degree in classical guitar music performance at the University of Denver and the Lamont School of Music. He has performed in many master classes including ones given by David Russell, Benjamin Verdery, and his primary instructor, Ricardo Iznaola. In addition, Chris has taken classes such as jazz improvisation, chord voicing, advanced music theory, and sight-reading.

BABYMETAL: New Trailer For 'Live At Budokan: Red Night & Black Night Apocalypse' DVD/Blu-Ray
Japanese pop-metal group BABYMETAL will release the "Live At Budokan: Red Night & Black Night Apocalypse" DVD/Blu-ray on January 7, 2015. The set will contain the band's Nippon Budokan performances from March 2014 when the three BABYMETAL singers/dancers became the youngest artists to ever appear at the famed venue. A new four-minute trailer for "Live At Budokan: Red Night & Black Night Apocalypse" can be seen below."Live At Budokan: Red Night & Black Night Apocalypse" will be made available in three formats: a DVD/Blu-ray box featuring both Nippon Budokan concerts (with the first dubbed "Red Night" and second "Black Night"); a CD titled "Live At Budokan: Red Night" containing an audio recording of the first Budokan show (the initial pressing of the CD will include the code to digitally download the new song "The One", which is a collaboration between BABYMETAL's production team and guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman of British epic power metallers DRAGONFORCE); and a Limited Box exclusive to the BABYMETAL fan club members, "Live At Budokan 'Budo-Can' - The One - Limited Box", a can-shaped package featuring the DVD/Blu-ray of both nights, plus the exclusive CD "Live At Budokan: Black Night" containing the audio recording of the second Budokan concert. For more information, visit Asmart.jp. Established in 2010, BABYMETAL is the offshoot of the Japanese pop idol group SAKURA GAKUIN that performs a distinctly Japanese mix of schoolgirl J-pop and heavy metal.BABYMETAL's members — Suzuka Nakamoto (a.k.a. Su-Metal, who handles vocals and dancing), Yui Mizuno (a.k.a. Yuimetal) and Moa Kikuchi (a.k.a. Moametal), the latter of whom both scream and dance — admit that they had never listened to metal before joining the group. The girls wear gothy schoolgirl costumes, do choreographed dance routines and bang their heads violently. Many heavy metal fans have been reluctant to embrace BABYMETAL— which also includes producer Kobametal and a backing band of corpse-painted virtuosos — with some Internet forums calling them "the definition of a gimmick", "awful" and "metal for hipsters." BABYMETAL's self-titled debut album was released in February 2014, achieving the #1 spot on the iTunes Heavy Metal chart in USA, UK, and Canada, and reaching #35 on the iTunes USA total sales chart. BABYMETAL continued to gain worldwide success, becoming the youngest Japanese artist to break into The Billboard 200 chart and reaching #4 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart.

BEHEMOTH's NERGAL Blames Russia's 'Idiot' Leader For Making It Impossible For Band To Complete Tour
Guitarist/vocalist Adam "Nergal" Darski of Polish extreme metallers BEHEMOTH spoke to UK's Metal Hammer magazine about the group's May 2014 tour of Russia which was cut short when he and his bandmates were ordered to leave the country after allegedly violating Russia's visa regulations. "Russia definitely was an important in our… in ['The Satanist'] album cycle and also in the band's career, because, after completing four successful tours in Russia, we did one uncompleted and not very successful tour in Russia, which was the 'Russian Satanist Tour'," he said. "We managed to play four shows out of thirteen shows, and there were so many forces struggling us and trying to stop us on our way to finish the tour that we had to give up, basically, when they put us behind bars and literally forced us to leave the country. We couldn't hit that wall anymore, so we just gave up and came back to Poland, and we actually got banned for five years to enter Russia. But it was also a very important moment in the album cycle." He continued: "I'm cooled down now and more relaxed about it, so I'm not as annoyed and infuriated as I was back then. But, yeah, let's just wait for better times there, because I, honestly, love the people there. And it's good crowds and it's amazing people. I love Russians. It's just the little fact that they have an idiot as a leader of the country. But then, things don't last forever, so we should just wait for better times and eventually we're gonna make it back there even bigger than so far." BEHEMOTH's concerts in Khabarovsk, Tomsk, Novosibirsk and Krasnodar were canceled following a string of protests by Christian activists. According to The Moscow Times, unidentified thugs prevented the musicians from taking the stage in Novosibirsk and beat up concertgoers, local media reported. A Russian video report can be seen below. BEHEMOTH is far from the only rock band to have run into problems in Russia recently. Back in June, shock rocker Marilyn Manson was forced to cancel his show in Moscow due to a bomb threat while another concert in Russia was scrapped over fears his performance would insult Orthodox believers and promote sadomasochism. 18 CANNIBAL CORPSE fans were arrested in St. Petersburg, Russia in October as they were protesting against the last-minute cancelation of the band's concert at the Kosmonavt music club. In July 2013, Russia passed a new anti-blasphemy law introducing fines and possible prison sentences for offending the "feelings of religious believers." CANNIBAL CORPSE's tour of Russia kicked off on October 2 in Krasnodar and was scheduled to include eight concerts. However, only four shows went ahead as planned, with the band's October 5 gig in Ufa getting axed when the venue abruptly closed "for technical reasons." CANNIBAL CORPSE's October 10 concert in Nizhny Novgorod was shut down by armed masked police officers 30 minutes after it had started. A number of fans were detained and taken for compulsory drug tests.
WOLF HOFFMANN On 'Blind Rage': 'It's Another Typical Old-School Record By ACCEPT'
Pat and Dan of "The Shred Shack" on MyWCWP 89.7FM recently conducted an interview with guitarist Wolf Hoffmann of German/American metallers ACCEPT. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). On ACCEPT's latest album, "Blind Rage":Wolf: "I think it's another typical old-school record by ACCEPT, and it's getting a great response. It actually entered the German chart at No. 1, which is a first for us as well, so [it's getting] an overwhelming response so far. I think what people like about it is that it's got, like I said, the old-school vibe to it with a modern sound. So we didn't really try to change anything; we just tried to write typical ACCEPT songs, only better — better than ever." On whether it was a conscious decision to go back to the sound and style of ACCEPT's 2010 album, "Blood Of The Nations":Wolf: "I think these last three albums, all with Mark Tornillo [on vocals] are sort of in the same pocket. But I would have to agree that this one sounds a little more mature and more along the lines of 'Blood Of The Nations'. I think, overall, all three of them have been super successful for us, and some fans even tell me that this new reincarnation of ACCEPT sounds better to them than anything we've ever done, so that makes us very happy. I think, overall, we're doing the right thing here." On taking time with the songwriting process for each album: Wolf: "A lot of time goes into making an album. I mean, the one thing we don't ever wanna do is just crank one out and say, 'Ah, it's fine. It's good enough. They don't know the difference.' I hate that. I really wanna put all my heart and soul into what I do and I wanna make sure it's the best it can possibly be at the time. And that, sometimes, is… it's not easy. You can't crank it out in a couple of weeks or anything; it really takes months and months. I think one of the reasons why this album is so successful is because Peter [Baltes, bass] started songwriting last summer, or spring, actually, during these festival shows and we continued all the way into Christmas time last year, so it was a good, solid six to eight months that we spent working on this stuff just about every day, and I think that makes for more mature stuff, because you can have the luxury of putting a song aside for a few weeks and listening to it again and again and again and reworking it until it's finally there."
SEBASTIAN BACH Records Song For ABC's Musical Comedy Series 'Galavant'
According to TVLine, former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach has laid down vocals on a song for ABC's upcoming musical comedy "Galavant". The series is part fairytale, part Broadway musical that follows a dashing hero, Galavant (Joshua Sasse), who loses the love of his life, Madalena (Mallory Jansen), to the evil King Richard (Timothy Omundson) and must take revenge to restore his "happily ever after."Bach's track will be heard in Episode 2, which airs in the second half-hour of the series' premiere on January 4 at 8/7c. The song will play during a sequence in which Galavant trains to joust Sir Jean Hamm (played by guest star John Stamos). From 2003 to 2007, Bach had a recurring role on the WB television show "Gilmore Girls" as Gil, the lead guitarist in Lane Kim's band HEP ALIEN. Bach also previously appeared on "Saturday Night Live", "MTV Cribs", "Strange Frequency", "Robot Chicken", and a long list of other television shows. In addition, he has done stage productions of "Jekyll And Hyde" (as Dr. Jekyll and Henry Hyde), "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" (as Riff Raff) and "Jesus Christ Superstar" (as Jesus of Nazareth). In a 2012 interview with the Chicago Tribune, Bach was asked if he finds he gets recognized more as the lead singer of SKID ROW, or for something like the "Gilmore Girls". "I get noticed for different things I've done in different areas of town," he responded. "If I'm in a rock club, it'll be SKID ROW, if I'm in a mall it's the 'Gilmore Girls'. Teenagers will come up to me and they'll be like, 'Aren't you that guy?' And I'll be like, 'Uh, which guy are you talking about?'" Regarding whether reciting a lot of dialogue really quickly in "Gilmore Girls" helped him as an actor, Bach said: "It's actually really hurt me. I went to audition for an episode of 'Law And Order', and they didn't understand why I was talking so fast, and I was like, 'No, you don't understand. I was on a show called the 'Gilmore Girls'. We had to say everything like that.'"
ARCH ENEMY: Fan-Filmed Footage Of Pratteln Concert
Fan-filmed video footage of ARCH ENEMY performing the song "My Apocalypse" on December 14 at Z7 in Pratteln, Switzerland can be seen below.ARCH ENEMY last month parted ways with guitarist Nick Cordle and replaced him with Jeff Loomis (ex-NEVERMORE). Loomis is making his live debut with ARCH ENEMY on the band's European tour, which kicked off on November 26. Said Loomis: "I'm very excited to be playing with ARCH ENEMY. "[ARCH ENEMY guitarist] Michael Amott and I have stayed in contact over the years since we toured together when I was playing in NEVERMORE. Not only do I admire his guitar playing and songwriting, but I also consider him a close friend. To be able to share the stage with Michael, Sharlee, Daniel and Alissa is something I'm really looking forward to. "2015 is going to be a great year... See you all on tour!" Said Michael Amott: "The prospect of working with Jeff Loomis moving forward is truly awesome! "Jeff Loomis is one of the best guitar players in the metal world, in my opinion, as well as being a longtime friend. I look forward to tearing it up on stages around the world together as we continue on the 'War Eternal' touring cycle throughout all next year and beyond!"ARCH ENEMY played its first show with new singer Alissa White-Gluz on May 23 at Turbohalle in Bucharest, Romania. Angela Gossow, who joined ARCH ENEMY in 2000 and made her debut on the now-classic "Wages Of Sin" (2001), stepped down as frontwoman and is focusing on management, while Alissa is taking her place.ARCH ENEMY's new album, "War Eternal", sold around 8,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 44. The CD was released on June 10 in North America via Century Media Records. The cover artwork was created by Costin Chioreanu.

Will artists skip studio support after Sony scandal?
