Evanescence Reveal A Reworking Of Global Hit ‘Bring Me To Life’

"Bring Me To Life (Synthesis)"

Evanescence have revealed a reworking of their debut single and global hit ‘Bring Me To Life’ which is available today, 18th August 2017. 

Taken from their next album SYNTHESIS which is due in the autumn, the reworked version of the song strips out the big distorted guitars and rock drums, replacing them with full orchestration in a completely synthetic world of beats and sounds, with help from arranger and composer David Campbell.

Originally "Bring Me to Life," (feat. guest vocals from Paul McCoy of 12 Stones), reached #5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 as well as marking their first U.K.#1 hit single. It was taken from Evanescence’s debut album "Fallen" which spent 43 weeks on the U.S. Billboard Top 10, sold more than 17 million copies worldwide, and was certified 7x platinum in the U.S alone.

SYNTHESIS will feature two new Evanescence songs in addition to fan favourites re-recorded with a live orchestra and electronica. Evanescence will launch the “Synthesis Live” tour in Europe later this year combining their intense live performances and timeless songwriting with a powerful live orchestra helping the band to deliver a transcendent concert experience.

Jens Prueter (Head Of A&R, Century Media Records Europe) comments on the signing: “We are very happy to welcome Savage Messiah to Century Media Records. It’s great to see that a young band can combine the best of old classics from Iron Maiden to Metallica with a fresh approach and, most importantly, excellent songs that can stand the test of time.

The band adds: “We’re so pleased to announce teaming up with CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS. This represents a big step for SAVAGE MESSIAH and we look forward to working on our new album together and taking the band to the next level and beyond!”

The Darkness unleash brand new single 'Solid Gold'



The Darkness have today released their expletive-drenched new single ‘Solid Gold’ via Cooking Vinyl, accompanied by a video of the self-proclaimed rock legends performing in a huge aircraft hanger amongst a mass of glam-rock lighting and Marshall speaker stacks.

Frontman Justin Hawkins announces, “We have written this song to reassure you all that having now released more music in the period after our well publicised hiatus than in the period before it, we have no intention whatsoever of stopping. Hence the lyric "We're never gonna stop... Shitting out solid gold". Barring any unforeseen circumstances, The Darkness will always be here to delight and beguile. You're welcome.”

An absolute monster of a rock song, ‘Solid Gold’ takes no prisoners whatsoever, taking direct aim at the music industry and addressing record companies, egos and the insincerity that comes with it. It will make uncomfortable listening for A&R men everywhere…

“There's a guy coming down from Sony / Artist and Repertoire
If he likes what he hears in those stupid ears / I can buy myself a faster car
Blowing smoke up our arses / Everything we do is ace
He wants to wine and dine us / He's desperate to sign us 
Cos we melted his fucking face”

Well, you don’t get that from Ed Sheeran!

‘Solid Gold’ is the latest single to be taken from The Darkness’ forthcoming album Pinewood Smile, out October 6th through Cooking Vinyl.

It follows the release of the glorious, hard-rockin’, autobiographical lead single ‘All The Pretty Girls’. Both singles are available on all streaming platforms and also available for download with pre-orders of the album for the instant gratification of fans. 
Click here for details: 

Pinewood Smile finds The Darkness on electrifying form, delivering some of the most sharp-witted, infectious, humorous and downright brilliant songs of their career. The album is also the first to feature the drumming and vocal talents of new band member Rufus Tiger Taylor, son of Queen legend Roger Taylor, who shares vocal duties with Justin on two of the tracks.

To celebrate the release of Pinewood Smile, The Darkness will be touring extensively at the end of this year playing 17 dates in the UK throughout November and December including a headline show at London’s Hammersmith Eventim Apollo on December 10th. The shows are part of a wider European tour, full dates can be found at

Iron Maiden announce comic book series 'Legacy Of The Beast'


The first ever official Iron Maiden comic book series is coming from leading US science fiction, fantasy and horror publishers Heavy Metal Publishing. The comic books are based on the band’s hit mobile role playing game, Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast, where players battle as Eddie across the many worlds of Iron Maiden’s discography, from the ancient sands of Powerslave to the far flung future of The Final Frontier.

Comprising five fantastic issues, with an overarching narrative and incredible illustrations,Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast is written by Llexi Leon and Ian Edginton, with art from Kevin J. West, Jason Gorder, and Santi Casas. The first issue goes on sale worldwide from comic retailers everywhere on October 11th, but is available to pre-order online now. See full details below.

The comic book series expands on the video game narrative. As dark forces conspire to corrupt the fabric of reality, Eddie’s immortal soul is shattered and strewn across the cosmos – leaving a weakened, primal Eddie to battle across space and time facing off against the twisted legions of The Beast, seeking out the lost shards of his soul, and bringing order to the realms. With each victory, and with the aid of old friends, Eddie will restore his fearsome powers as he draws ever closer to facing the Unholy foe behind his fall… and thwarting a plot to unravel all of Creation!

Jeff Krelitz, CEO of Heavy Metal says, “As a lifelong fan of Iron Maiden, it is a privilege to publish the first official comic giving a narrative to their iconic mascot, Eddie. Heavy Metal’s near half-century-long history of either working with or launching the careers of only the most accomplished artists continues here with the amazing team Iron Maiden has working on this series.” 

Llexi Leon, Interactive Creative Director at Phantom Music Management says, "After 40 years of unbridled creativity, innovation, and attitude, Heavy Metal has always been a home to the greatest talent in sequential storytelling and fantasy art. With a natural affiliation to the heavy music genre, it's a nexus point for counter culture and alternative arts. I can think of no better partner to explore Iron Maiden's Mythology and expand the Legacy Of The Beast!"

The official launch of the first issue is October 11th - at comic retailers everywhere. However, you can preorder a copy online NOW and get all the action delivered through your mailbox!

SABATON release World Of Tanks video

SABATON and the massively popular MMO game World of Tanks have collided to forge a new genre: Tank Metal. The band’s love of history, which blasts through in their music, reviving dramatic, historical events made them a perfect match for the historical tank warfare game developed by Wargaming. Both communities have a love of history and are proud that their players are bursting with musical creativity and passion.

SABATON collaborated with World of Tanks to put a new spin on the band’s classic track 'Primo Victoria'. The iconic tune is taken from the studio album released in 2005, of the same name.
 Watch the video here:

When Wargaming discovered that SABATON were players of the game, they couldn’t wait to collaborate with the band and ultimately created a music video that encapsulates World of Tanks’ drive and style. Directed by famous German music video and commercial director Zoran Bihac, the creative genius behind videos including 'Mein Herz Brennt' (RAMMSTEIN), 'Eat you Alive' (EMIGRATE) and 'Praise Abort' (LINDEMANN), the video features the song 'Primo Victoria' and focuses on all the emotions felt during a heroic tank battle.

“Understanding the setting of World of Tanks, I can easily say that this game is about history and its importance, but to be honest: also about fun”, said Zoran Bihac, on the new music video. “It awakens the inner-child in you; it’s how I feel about my work, and it resonates with SABATON’s style. I wanted to keep the feeling of the game, and especially of their trailers, which look like real, historically accurate movies. This had to be combined with the song and our performance. To create a story, I came up with the setting of a normal performance video, where the tanks come alive, and start to hunt and shoot each other.”

A number of the shots for the tanks were filmed in Arsenalen Tank Museum, Strängnäs, Sweden. The action scenes were shot on a military base in Belarus, where the band got a totally new experience of riding in actual WW2 tanks. The wall destruction scene was shot on the first take with a Panzer III actually crashing through the wall, with Pär Sundström on board.

“Working closely with talented musicians like SABATON was an awesome experience for us”, said Maxim Chuvalov, World of Tanks marketing director. “One of the challenges we faced was that the band was constantly on tour, preforming shows all over the world almost every day. We had to find a slot in their tight schedule to bring the idea to life. Thankfully, the guys were very energetic and flexible, as well as really hardworking, so the project took shape. We’re really proud to have such talented musicians in our community and super excited to present the Tank Metal video to our fans.” 

Fans can expect more Tank Metal coming to World of Tanks. On August 17th, the first ever music tank, the Strv 81 Primo Victoria, will be available in the game with some cool camo and unique features like a SABATON crew with the captain’s VO, Band of Brothers perk, and more.

On May 10, 1996 Finnish Rockers, APOCALYPTICA, released their epic debut 'PLAYS METALLICA BY FOUR CELLOS', a new approach to the hits of the biggest metal band the world has seen.

Papa Roach pulls no punches when it comes to politics. Earlier this year, the multi-platinum, award winning icons of alternative hard rock made headlines for taking on Paul Ryan in defense of the Affordable Care Act, but it’s “American Dreams,” the latest single off their ninth LP Crooked Teeth, where Papa Roach goes all in on the current state of America’s political affairs.

“America is struggling, America is divided, America is hurting right now,” explains Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix. “We’re at a fever pitch of confusion, smoke and mirrors, blatant lies. The American Dream is on the chopping block.

“Have you ever thought that war was a sickness?” asks the lifelong pacifist in the lyrics for the track. “My father is a Vietnam veteran. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and the disintegration of the American family are things I've dealt with personally. I know other people relate.”

Today the band reveals the official video for the new LP’s second single, “American Dreams” which went Top-10 at Active Rock this week, holding steady at #8. Shot in Shaddix’s rural Northern California hometown of Sacramento, the video was Produced and Directed by Bryson Roatch, and features a cast of real life Americans fighting to create their own version of the elusive American Dream and addresses many of the issues preventing them from attaining that dream.

Something's wrong here
Or so it seems
'Cause I'm not sleeping in
American Dreams
American lies
We're trying to see through the smoke in our eyes
So give me the truth
Don't tell me your lies
'Cause it's harder to breathe
When you're buried alive
By American Dreams

Papa Roach released their ninth studio album on May 19 to critical acclaim, debuting at #1 on the Billboard ‘sTop Hard Rock Albums Chart, #4 on the Top Rock Albums Chart, and Top 20 in the Top 200. It hit the top 20 in the UK and has accumulated over 52 million spotify streams since its release.
