Progressive metal legends Cynic return with a new song, four years after the "Kindly Bent to Free Us" album. Their new digital single is called "Humanoid" and is recorded by Paul Masdival, Sean Malone and new drummer Matt Lynch (and is mixed in collaboration with Adam Getgood).

Frontman Paul Masvidal commented: "'Humanoid' is a portrait of contrasts, like those between struggle and stillness, or the immediate against the limitless. Our Stargate is planet Earth — consciousness, the transmitter. We, sentient creatures of light, are alive now — on a sphere, floating in a galaxy fixed amidst the infinite. It's quite miraculous to be aware of this, and it invokes a sense of urgency and empowerment that is unlike anything else."



Warrior Soul are coming back to Greece for three live shows. We just got the official press release, you can check it right below:

Warrior Soul, the band fronted by legendary singer Kory Clarke, have announced two new concert dates in Greece. The dates are in support of their new "Back On The Lash" album released on December 1st, via Livewire/Cargo Records UK.

February 23 - AN Club, Athens, Greece
February 24 - t.b.a., Greece
February 25 - 8Ball Club, Thessaloniki, Greece

Warrior Soul are back with profane sermons delivered at high velocity and maximum volume and this is what the new album is all about!"Back On The Lash" is a powerful statement of intent from Kory and Warrior Soul. 

Kory Clarke is one of the last true rock n’ roll frontmen and since the classic "Last Decade Dead Century" in 1990, he has continued to swim against the tide of mediocrity and safe rebellion. His last solo album"Payback’s A Bitch" received the full score in Rolling Stone Magazine upon release. This firebrand of political invective and rock n’ roll is back on the lash with a new album for 2017/2018 and you won’t hear a more powerful or authentic album this year. It is everything you would expect aggressive, vile and wants to make you go to the bar and tell the planet to fuck off.

"Back On The Lash" track listing:

1. American Idol
2. I Get Fucked Up
3. Back On The Lash
4. Further Decay
5. Thrill Seeker
6. Goin’ Broke Gettin’ High
7. Black Out
8. I’ve Got The Rock
9. That’s How We Roll



Another great loss comes to immerse us in sorrow. This time we heard the sad news that Dolores O'Riordan, the singer of The Cranberries, died today, January the 15th. She passed away unexpectedly in London, where she had been for a recording session. Until now, there are no details about the cause of her death. She was only 46-years old.

The distinguished singer/songwriter, born on September 6, 1971, in the Ballybricken area of County Limerick, Ireland, gained success with the rock band The Cranberries, especially with the album "No Need To Argue", which has sold about 17 million copies worldwide. O'Riordan's voice was unique and highly recognizable, and her songs so beautiful and strange (for example, everybody knows "Zombie", The Cranberries most popular song). The band took a break in 2007, and O'Riordan followed a solo career (her first solo album, "Are You Listening?" was released in 2007, followed by 2009's "No Baggage"). The Cranberries reunited in 2009. She was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

Rest in Peace, Dolores ...  


Dave Mustaine admitted earlier today on Twitter that his initial vision was to destroy Metallica. Asked by a fan earlier today what his measure of success was when starting Megadeth and what his vision for the band was, he answered: "My measure of success was if I ate that day or not, and my vision was destroy Metallica and stop living in a van. Good thing I got over my animosity for leaving the band. I'm glad we reconciled... Where's the Big 4 shows???"

It is important that the main man of Megadeth is frank and tells the truth. We all know how things are and don't want our music heroes to hide before lies. Mustaine is reconciled now with his ex-bandmates (he has jammed with them during the "Big Four" shows and at Metallica's 30th-anniversary concerts in 2011), but he was in conflict with them for over two decades.
