The recordings for the follow-up of "Give 'em Hell" album have started. We are talking about Sebastian Bach, who has informed his fans that he has begun "cutting demos" for one of the tunes for his next studio album. This song is written by John 5 (guitar, Rob Zombie, ex - Marylin Manson). Right below you can watch the relevant video from the studio.

 

 

"Book Of Bad Decisions", the new album of Clutch, is set to hit the stores this September. The album was produced at Sputnik Sound studio in Nashville, Tennessee, with producer and engineer Vance Powell. 

Neil Fallon stated about the lyrical themes covered on "Book Of Bad Decisions": "This record has a lot of… maybe not a lot, but instances where I looked back into events of my own life or Clutch's career, took them and exaggerated them for the purposes of drama. I've always been wary of that, 'cause I don't really like nostalgia. But I also realize, after 25 years, there's a whole catalogue of experiences that I can take and draw from that. Sometimes getting inspired can be hard. Listening to a song, [you think], 'What's this one gonna be about?' And sometimes they come right out of the sky, sometimes no, they don't. So that seemed like a good place to draw from".

Fallon described the experience of working with Powell as "awesome": "We were only three weeks, and we managed to bang out 15 songs. It's done, in the bag. He was a joy to work with, and it's a great-sounding record, and we're really pleased with the way it came out."

All of a sudden, the end of White Wizzard has come... Although they released a new album, "Infernal Overdrive", in January 2018, they just announced that they break up.  Founder Jon Leon uploaded on the band's Facebook official page the following statement: "Well the time has come. I started White Wizzard in late 2007 a little over 10 years ago. With the first line up we crafted a great EP that sadly had too much talent in one band to last... From there... I wrote 4 full-length albums I am very proud of and had some fantastically talented musicians that played on them.

"Regardless of the internet bullshit written about me or the band, it was formed in the spirit of the music I loved and nothing more. It has always been about the music to me. I feel all of our work has been world class and not only do I feel it is the best and most consistent in the 'classic metal revival' genre so to speak…But I feel our last and final album Infernal Overdrive can hang with anything put out the past 20 years in rock and metal. I am very proud of the work this project has done. I feel it can and will stand the test of time.

"But time does pass and some things run their course. So unfortunately I have to announce that White Wizzard is over. There will be no more albums or live shows. The last album is it. I am glad we got to do it. I am proud of the latest video for Chasing Dragons and I wish all members of the band past and present well in their musical and personal journeys. For me, a new ticket and a new ride must be bought and taken. So as this journey ends, a new one begins. This will be my last post about this. It is time to end Jon Leon as well. Keep making music and loving it, because there is not much else in this world that is as real and special. All the best and to the fans, thank you".

"My Midnight Things", Lizzy Borden's new album in 11 years, will be released on June 15, via Metal Blade. Although the years have passed, this new album shows us that Borden is here again to rock and shock. The new album was mixed by Greg Fidelman (Metallica, Black Sabbath, Adele, U2), mastered by Tom Baker (David Bowie, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Tom Petty) and produced by Borden himself, together with Joey Scott as co-producer (Joey also handled all the drumming duties). Below you can stream the title track of the album.

Lizzy Borden said: "Although we have stayed busy touring all over the world, I missed being a recording artist. I look at the new album as a new beginning, I pushed the restart button on my career". "I knew what I was going for and had doubts that I could find a producer who would understand that. My approach is very different than what is happening in today's current sound".
