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.

SHADOWSIDE Gathering New Album Ideas

Shadowside, one of the most important names of Brazilian heavy metal, is  preparing to end the fans’ anxiety. The band has recently declared they are  already working on ideas for a new album, follower of the successful Inner Monster Out.
After a successful European tour supporting Helloween and Gamma Ray and a  series of praised performances in Brazil, Brazilian band Shadowside is thinking  of the follower their most fruitful album to date, “Inner Monster Out”,  considered by Roadie Crew magazine one of the most important releases of  Brazilian heavy metal history.
The band has declared on several interviews that they are working on ideas  for their new album.
“We’ve been talking about this new material since the  Hellish Rock tour and renown producer Fredrik Nordström is already aware of our  intention of working with him again,” said guitarist Raphael Mattos.
Vocalist Dani Nolden highlighted the band’s growth.
“We’ve played a lot of shows, over 60  on this last tour, we’ve grown more mature and I believe we’ll come up with  something even better.”
Inner Monster Out was considered by the fans and specialized media as one  of the best records released in 2011/2012.
Some of the album’s achievements were:
– Winner of the 11th Independent Music Awards, one of the most important  awards of independent music, by popular voting on the category Best  Metal/Hardcore album. Past winners include Lacuna Coil and All that  Remains.
– 26th best selling album in Japan according to BURRN! magazine, appearing  in front of names such as Nightwish, Shinedown, Evanescence and Lamb of  God.
– 9th position on CMJ Top 40 Loud Rock charts. The album remained on the  top 15 for 6 weeks in a row and top 10 for 2 weeks in a row. CMJ is the primary  source for exclusive charts of non-commercial and college radio airplay.
 
Even with their minds on this new material, Shadowside doesn’t feel like  leaving the stages yet.
They are still booking dates for the second leg of the Brazilian tour and available for shows worldwide.
Concert promoters interested in booking the band should contact contato@furiamusic.com.br for shows in Latin America and info@b-musik-management.de for shows worldwide.

Female-Fronted Technical Death Metallers YOUR CHANCE TO DIE Release New Album

Adrenaline PR

South Carolina female-fronted technical death metal band YOUR CHANCE TO DIE is thrilled to announce the release of their sophomore full-length album, The American Dream via Red Cord Records. The record is available on iTunes.The American Dream

In addition, the band released a new music video for the track Oscuridad. Shred-worthy guitar solos, pounding blast beats and shattering growls make this track a must-listen. On a larger scale, the new album The American Dream captures the listener with its heavy yet darkly ambient tracks, bringing a new dimension to the band’s already polished sound.

Now, we know what you’re thinking. Female-fronted technical death metal? Really? Can that possibly work and still be legitimate death metal? Yes, really. Take one listen/watch of their new music video for the single Oscuridad and it will become increasingly apparent that this band is all skill and no frill, with a female vocalist that gives many of today’s male death metal vocalists a marathon-worthy run for their money.

YOUR CHANCE TO DIE has been featured on several radio stations, in national magazines and on countless music websites. See what press has had to say about YOUR CHANCE TO DIE and their sound:

“…this is maximum face-melting-inducing death metal, that carries strong melodic influences enhanced by some great lead guitar work… still can’t believe it’s a woman on vocals! Dudes, just for that give it a listen, and mind your jaw don’t drop to hard against the floor. Death metal aside, any real lover music, and a love for musicianship would concur that there is mad skill on this album” The Metal Resource

“Some very fun blasts, off-time breaks and fills, and gallops make the record very fun to listen to. Missi’s growl evokes pain and doom, in a most effective manner. There are hauntingly beautiful melodies, because the guitarists clearly know what they’re doing” – The New Review

“[Missi] brings on the rage just as well, if not better, than some male front men. The sound of the band is built on a sturdy groundwork of screeching guitars and the double pedal bass drum styling’s of Daniel Todd. The nine-track album, energetic from start to finish, is filled with whaling guitar solos and heavy breakdowns that will snap your neck”  – Lexington Music Press Magazine

“What you have here is a band…a band that makes it work. The vocals are straight. When listening, you forget the whole female aspect and just listen to the music for what it is. And what it is, is a brutal assault of melodic death metal”  – Buried Sound

In 2011 YOUR CHANCE TO DIE released their first official album with Red Cord Records entitled Suscitacio Somnus, recorded and produced by Jamie King (Between the Buried and MeThe Human AbstractFor Today). The full length album received very strong reviews and topped iTunes and FYE lists as the “best-selling metal album” in its first week.

YOUR CHANCE TO DIE completed three national tours, as well as a successful tour in Central America and two tours in Mexico. In support of the new album, 2013 will bring another national tour, a Central/South America tour, and a European tour. YOUR CHANCE TO DIE has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Still RemainsiwrestledabearonceFor TodayNileEmmure, and more.
