Symphony X detail new LP 23 replies

After a four year wait, Symphony X have set Underworld as the title of their 8th studio release.

From Michael Romeo:

"Like the last couple of records, there’s a theme that carries through, without it being storytelling. We try to find something to key in on and get the juices flowing, and here the goal was to find something a little dark but with emotional content. I started looking at Dante, and Orpheus in the underworld, where he’s going to go to Hades or hell to save this girl. So there’s the theme of going to hell and back for something or someone you care about".

The track list is as follows:

1. Overture
2. Nevermore
3. Underworld
4. Without You
5. Kiss Of Fire
6. Charon
7. Hell And Back
8. In My Darkest Hour
9. Run With The Devil

Game over !

Hey guys. Bethlehem has split-up and does a break. If there will be a comeback or won't isn't certain yet. Obviously isn't. Bethlehem has to stay pure anarchy - against all odds - and certainly isn't a playground for wannabes. The fuck off. All shows for 2015 got canceled, NYC (Stardust) & Austria (Sick Midsummer) already have found a surrogate. Informations can be requested from the organisers. NYC would be done at another time if this band should dare a comeback. If so, this first would result in a new longplayer anyways. Fingers (double) crossed !

Other than that I got a tendinitis again. This time it's the right wrist/underarm which fully gets swallen after practising two songs and which makes it impo ...more

Lamb of God release new song 40 replies

Lamb of God have released a new song. entitled 'Still Echoes', via their website:

The song followed a countdown from the website that had been up for a few weeks which was speculated to be a new album announcement. We now know that the new album will be entitled, VII: Strum Und Drang, and will be released worldwide this July.

Strum Und Drang translates to "Storm and Stress" and would seem to draw influence from Randy Blythe's time in the Czech Republic where he was detained for possible manslaughter in the death of a fan at a concert. This event figures to heavily influence the songwriting on the album and can be seen in the single release today.
