Video – Insectoid Jam – Tribune rehearses Insectoid during their last jam before touring

This is Tribune‘s second cross Canada Tour since 2012, when they toured across the US and Canada in support of their last release Elder Lore/ The Dark Arts. 

The Vancouver quintet unleashed their concept album ‘Tales’ during October 2013 via their indie label Corpse Corrosion Music. The release was inspired entirely by literature and features a wide array of influences from Homer to Mary Shelley to H.P. Lovecraft, to more extreme musical influences such as Carcass, Death and At The Gates. The band’s appetite for more melodic and more brutally heavy sounds to follow-up 2011’s Elder Lore/The Dark Arts is demonstrated with their collusion of extremity and accessibility that bleeds into the melting pot and their fresh take of progressive death metal.

KADAVAR Set to Kick Off North American Tour

Berlin Proto-Metal Power Trio Set to Kick Off North American Headlining Tour

Blues-Bruised Band Reinterprets Metal’s Masters to Intoxicating, Addictive Effect; Bringing Amplified Live Show to Stateside Stages Now
Deluxe, 2-CD “Tour Edition” of New Album Abra Kadavar to be Released May 13!

Berlin-based psychedelic power rock trio KADAVAR launched their North American headlining tour in Houston, TX. The scheduled five week trek — presented by Scion AV — will see the band take the stage in 25 major markets across the U.S. and Canada, bringing its much talked about live show and deep daze retro-metal to as many music fans as possible. KADAVAR continues to thrill audiences across the globe, touring in support of its latest a self-titled debut, LP Abra Kadavar.

 “We are excited to return to North America and our amplifiers are at the ready,” comments KADAVAR vocalist/guitarist Christoph Lindemann.

“We hope you are ready for what we are bringing your way. See you soon.”

The KADAVAR headlining trek kicks off on the heels of multiple, much-talked-about live performances as part of the 2014 SXSW Festival, where the trio was hailed as “super exciting” and “a must-see live band.”

Since the release of 2012′s eponymous debut album, KADAVAR has cast a spell over fans of solid riff-driven yet doom-like 70′s hard rock (à la BLACK SABBATH, PENTAGRAM) and has shared the stage with like-minded acts such as SLEEP, ELECTRIC WIZARD and SAINT VITUS. Now, music fans can witness for themselves the captivating power and excitement of KADAVAR’s vaunted live show as the North American tour is set to begin. 

Additionally, Nuclear Blast Records will release a special “Tour Edition” of KADAVAR’s Abra Kadavar on May 13. The limited edition set will include the band’s latest album in its entirety packaged along with a second, full live CD, documenting the band’s undeniably memorable and powerful live show.

DEN SAAKALDTE Stream New Song

Norwegian black metal act DEN SAAKALDTE launch a debut track from their upcoming album Kapittel II: Faen i Helvete, set to be released on May 27 in Europe and June 10 in North America via Agonia Records. The song is entitled Din Siste Dag and is available for listening at YouTube: http://youtu.be/Xwz2GyBIeOA

DEN SAAKALDTE steps out of the shadows after five long years of strengthening their dark musical identity and defining a more grim musical approach. Built upon intense and heavy emotions and featuring members of Gorgoroth, 1349, Koldbrann and Nidingr, Kapittel II: Faen i Helvete feels as the band’s most complete work to date. The album combines doom and black metal elements with clean vocals, spoken parts and obscure atmosphere. Eldur (Fortid) replaced Niklas (Shining) on vocals.

The successor to All Hail Pessimism (2009) was recorded in Strand Studio in February 2014. The album will be available as a 3 panel digipack CD, digitally and on vinyl (in three versions: black, blue and red).

Pre-orders are available: https://www.agoniarecords.com/index.php?pos=shop&lang=en

Tracklist:
1. Din Siste dag
2. Forbanna Idioter
3. Du Selvproklamerte Misjonær
4. Endeløst Øde
5. Djevelens Verk
6. Som Ett Arr på Sjelen
7. Ondskapens Nødvendighet

Line-up:
Sykelig – guitars
Tjalve – guitars and backing vocals
Seidemann – bass
Eldur – vocals
Tybalt – drums

AMARANTHE Returning To Studio After Tour

AMARANTHE - the modern metal sextet from Gothenburg, Sweden – announced that they will be returning to North America in support of their new album.  The band will be providing direct support for Within Temptation. The tour begins 9/25 in San Francsico, CA and runs through 10/11 in Worcester, MA.

Guitarist Olof Morck commented on the North American tour:

“We could not be more pleased to announce that we will be supporting Within Temptation on their North American tour this fall! I have loved Within Temptation’s music for almost ten years, so it will be an honor to support them. But most of all, we can’t wait to see our amazing American fans again, and make a bunch of new ones!”

The band has confirmed an autumn 2014 release date for their new studio album via Spinefarm Records; as yet untitled, this latest outing will be the follow-up to Amaranthe (2011, now gold in Sweden) and The Nexus (2013). These two releases, which defined the band’s approach through their signature blend of musical styles and voices, caused an international stir right from the start; not only did The Nexus top the rock chart in Sweden, but it went straight to # 1 on the US iTunes Metal Chart as well, whist the videos (from both albums) have continued to clock up millions of views.

The success of these records saw AMARANTHE  playing to audiences all over the world, and now – following shows across Europe, including an appearance at the Bandit Awards in Stockholm where one of the band’s three singers, Elize Ryd, received the ‘Rock n’ Role Model’ Award – the six will head back into the studio.

AMARANTHE are currently on tour in Europe.  A complete list of dates and links to purchase tickets can be found HERE.
