Everybody knows the three tenors, the operatic singing group of Plácido Domingo, José Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti. Well now, we have a new singing group of three metal singers, The Three Tremors! This singing super-group consists of Sean Peck, Tim "Ripper" Owens and Harry Conklin. Their self-titled debut album will be released on September 20. Let's say what the three singers have to say.

Sean Peck (Cage, Death Dealer, Denner/Shermann): "It was about five years ago, I was camping and thinking about the whole Three Tremors urban legend from long ago and what a shame it was that it never happened. Then I started thinking about if there was a resurrected 2018 version of it, who would I get, and Tim and Harry were at the top of my list. I immediately reached out to Tim, who agreed to embark on this adventure and Harry quickly joined next. It took a long time to put it together, create the right songs, and get it properly arranged, but the results are beyond my wildest expectations. I think the fans are really going to freak out on what we have done with this record, and live it's going to be almighty I assure you!"

Tim "Ripper" Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Yngwie Malmsteen): "Sean's band, Cage, opened for Judas Priest on the 'Jugulator' tour in San Diego — that is where I first met him. He hit me up about resurrecting the idea and actually doing a record, and then a band, to put this out in the live setting also, and I thought it sounded really cool. The record came out really strong and I think the fans deserved to have a thing like this actually exist. We performed two of the songs live already when I was out in San Diego shooting the video for the first single, and it was a blast."

Harry Conklin (Jag Panzer)": "Sean and I ended up at a party together in Germany, where we were both playing the same festival, and he told me about the Three Tremors album he was putting together and asked if I would be into it. He described the concept and how he wanted to bring this old idea to actual life and I said I was in. Once I started hearing the songs that were being sent over for me to record, I knew this thing was going to be really powerful. Then when I got sent the final mixes with all three of us on it, my jaw hit the floor on how well it all came together. For heavy metal fans, this is the ultimate."

The world of heavy metal is shocked again. We all heavy metal fans are devastated with the sad news of the loss of one of heavy metal’s most respected musicians - Manilla Road’s Mark Shelton died of a heart attack last Friday. Mark Shelton was the leading force of Manilla Road, who were distinguished as a legendary epic metal band and had loyal fans - especially in Greece. Manilla Road were formed in the late ‘70s and their classic albums, for example, “Open the Gates”, “ The Deluge” and “Crystal Logic”, were a specimen of traditional, epic US metal of the eighties. Mark “The Shark” left our world at the age of 60, during Manilla Road’s tour. He was a skilled guitar player, he had a unique way of singing and he was a humble person - everyone who had the chance to meet him describes him as a charismatic and beautiful personality. Things could be said about Manilla Road’s special sound, but only the best about Shelton, who was a devoted musician and played metal until he passed away. He will be remembered forever and he will be here with us through his songs. Our condolences to his family and friends. A true warrior, he will be singing now in Heaven.

These days there is a rumor that AC/DC have started working on their new album. The whole thing started, when a Canadian journalist claimed that Stevie Young and Phil Rudd were spotted in Vancouver. And now the rumor is getting stronger, as there is a photographic proof, indicating not only that the legendary is in works of its new album, but also that Phil Rudd and Brian Johnson are going to participate as regular members!! Crystal Lambert, an AC/DC fan and Vancouver resident, took a photo two days ago, which shows Rudd sharing a laugh with Johnson outside Warehouse Studios. Lambert lives in an apartment next to the Studios, where AC/DC have recorded their most recent albums. So, as it seems, Rudd and Johnson had a break outside the studio of the band. Let's see what finally happens, and hopefully, there is a big announcement from AC/DC!

 

 

Due to reasons beyond their control, Arch Enemy were forced to postpone their planned U.S. tour dates (September/October). This news is a surprise, since the band doesn't usually postpone tours.

Read the band's announcement: "We very much regret to inform you that we will be postponing our return to North America until 2019. We were looking forward to seeing everyone again this Fall and to share our stage with Goatwhore and Uncured, but we have been forced to cancel this run due to reasons beyond our control. It's very unfortunate timing, but we cannot wait to come back and rock US soil again next year and see all your faces! Thank you for understanding and as always for your support of Arch Enemy! Refunds are available at point of purchase".

The dates that are affected can be seen here:

Arch Enemy also announced that they will return to Buenos Aires, Argentina, on November 8th, 2018 with Helloween and Kreator.
