Lars Ulrich Says The Next METALLICA Album Will Be Done This June

Lars Ulrich, Metallica drummer,  recently explained to Metal Forces and gave an update on the progress of the band’s tenth full-length studio album: “We’re now coming towards the end of the musical creative process and we’re starting to look ahead and the process of how we’re gonna share this record with the universe. The month of June is basically when we’re gonna sit down and figure what we’re gonna do with it all; what we’re gonna call it and what’s gonna be on it”.

For this long awaited album after Death Magnetic which still doesn't have a title and track list yet, Metallica have been working with Death Magnetic producer Greg Fidelman at their headquarters in San Rafael, California.

Lars is hopeful that the new album will see release in 2016, but would give no guarantees. “If the record doesn’t come out this year then it won’t be because it’s not done,” he stated. “It will be because there’s some sort of cosmic reason that it would be smarter to hold onto it until next year. But the record will be done this summer”.

Lars Ulrich was speaking exclusively to Metal Forces for an extensive Metallica feature due to be published soon.

The Prince of Darkness Wisdom. Ozzy Osbourne Quotes

What the prince of darkness has to say about the government, peace, war, people, society, and his own mind. :)

The Ozzy Osbourne quotes:

"They say military have the so-called 'secret intelligence'. This amount of intelligence must be very secret, since i've never seen any intelligent military person, nor i have seen any sense in the bloody stupid wars."

"If guns don't kill people, why do we give people guns when they go to war? Why not just send the people?"

"I don't want you to play me a riff that's going to impress Joe Satriani; give me a riff that makes a kid want to go out and buy a guitar and learn to play."

"Off all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most"

Men are proud creatures, We think we're all civilized and sophisticated, but we're just cavemen with mobile phones and nicer clothes at the end of the day"

"Maybe it's not to late to learn how to love and forget how to hate"

The video, which was directed by Drew Cox, is quite intense and bizzare. It pictures the moment of rapture as it shows the band performing on top of a building in a large city, while people start floating up into the air. There are other strange visuals, such as a woman dancing amongst white powder and clad as though she were a cloud herself. A kind of metal video you need to watch more than once.

Nuclear Blast magazine:
"With "UNDER ATTACK", Destruction created their own ''Painkiller'' .... this is their best album so far and exactly what Teutonic thrash is meant to be!" 
Luca Bosio (Rock Hard Italy) 10/10
"It concludes, as if there was any doubt, that “pureness is the key”. And in so doing, hits the studded nail right into the leather belt, because its doubtful there will be a better or more pure thrash expedition anywhere else this year. Absolutely, relentlessly brilliant." 9/10
"Under Attack is a definite continuation of Destruction’s history of solid album releases"
"Chalk it up to thrash fatigue and/or the jaded cynicism that comes metal reviewing, but it’s enjoyable enough and as Germanic thrash goes, it’s a worthy spin for committed thrashers"
"Thrash as a genre celebrates the old. With Under Attack the onslaught is unrelenting right up until the final notes of “Stigmatized” the band never let up. Fans of the genre will no doubt lap up Destruction’s latest offering, crafting a rock solid album the band re-emerge triumphant adressing current world problems with a vintage spin Under Attack is an album that condemns technology and like its sound goes back to basics."
"Only a Destruction album can be catchy yet rapid. The melody and groove is just more fuel added to this flame. This is why Under Attack will overpower other albums released this year. You won’t be able to help but submit to Destruction’s influence. Each song will stick with you so hard it will scar. Destruction is one of the biggest influences on thrash for a reason"
"Under Attack’ is a worthwhile listen for fans of thrash metal. While not a perfect record, the album is an amazing effort that contains more pros than cons with enough thrash credibility to hold your listening attention. If you like loud, fast, heavy and unrelenting metal, be sure to check this album out."

The Full Story of Dream Theater's New Conceptual Double Album "Astonishing"


As you probably know, Dream Theater have a new record out. It's called "The Astonishing" and it's a conceptual double album with an intricate story.

The effort features characters and maps and a whole lot of interesting details. Also, the boys have presented a video for lead single "The Gift of Music," so we figured it'd be nice to incite you folks to take a listen by introducing you to the story. 

The story features eight main characters, four on each of the clashing sides:

Emperor Nafaryus, his wife Empress Arabelle, his son Daryus, and his daughter Faythe of the Great Northern Empire, and Gabriel, his brother Arhys, his late wife Evangeline, and his their son Xander on the Ravenskill Rebel Militia side.

So, THE STORY - the year is 2285, the northeastern part of the US is now a dystopian land ruled by the oppressive Great Northern Empire of the Americas. The empire is ruled by Emperor Nafaryus, Empress Arabelle, Crown Prince Daryus and Princess Faythe. 

"The Gift of Music" - Music and art are dead, and the only thing that even slightly resembles entertainment is the electronic noise of noise machines known as the NOMACS. In a distant village called Ravenskill, a man named Gabriel possesses the natural ability to make music and sing. 

"A Better Life" - Gabriel has an older brother called Commander Arhys of the Ravenskill Rebel Militia, who has a son Xander with his deceased wife Evangeline. 

"Lord Nafaryus" - The first act commences when Nafaryus hears a rumor about Gabriel being the savior of the people. He travels to Ravenskill with his family to see the miracle of music. 

"A Savior in the Square" - In the Ravenskill town square, Gabriel is performing for the people when the royal family shows up. He continues playing at the emperor's request and nearly brings them all to tears. 

"Act of Faythe" - Faythe remembers a music player she would when she was a child, something she kept a secret all her life. As she and Gabriel look at each other, they fall in love. 

"Three Days" - Although he was moved by music, Nafaryus sees Gabriel as a threat to his rule and gives the people of Ravenskill three days to deliver their savior to him, or he will obliterate the town. 

"Brother, Can You Hear Me?" - Arhys decides to hide his brother, refusing to give him up. 

"A Life Left Behind" - Faythe badly wants to see Gabriel again, and takes a risk by disguising herself and traveling back to Ravenskill. Aware of her daughter's emotions, Arabelle instructs Daryus to follow and protect her. Daryus feels he was overlooked by his father in favor of Faythe, accepts to travel to Ravenskill, but with his own intentions. 

 "Ravenskill" - Faythe arrives to Ravenskill and finds Xander, who trusts her enough to lead her to his father Arhys. Faythe convinces Arhys that she can help, so he brings her to Gabriel's hideout. Gabriel and Faythe embrace, and she promises to try to convince her father to stop the madness. 

"A Tempting Offer" - Meanwhile, Daryus found Arhys' home and took Xander captive. Daryus promised he will guarantee the safety and wealth of Xander as long as Arhys brings Gabriel to him. Daryus actions are driven by hope that he will gain respect from his father. 

"The X Aspect" - Arhys is forced to say yes, remembering the promise he made to Evangeline, to protect their son. 

 "A New Beginning" - Faythe is back in the palace, where she finds out that her beloverd music player once belonged to her father. 

"The Road to Revolution" - Nafaryus bows to his daughter's pleas and agrees to meet Gabriel at an abandoned amphitheater called Heaven's Cove. 

"Moment of Betrayal" - At this point, the second act begins. Arhys informs Daryus that Gabriel will be at Heaven's Cove that night. 

"The Path That Divides" - While Arhys is waiting at the amphitheater, he changes his mind, and when Daryus shows up, they start a fight. Daryus overpowers Arhys and kills him, unaware that Xander followed them and saw the whole scene. 

"The Walking Shadow" - As Xander runs to his father's dead body, Daryus sees the silhouette of someone approaching him. Assuming it's Gabriel approaching, he goes in for the kill, realizing too late that it is actually his sister Faythe. 

"My Last Farewell" - Gabriel arrives at the scene and sees his dead brother and the dying Faythe. Covering Xander's ears, he unleashes a scream that causes Daryus to go deaf. The scream is heard by Nafaryus, Arabelle and the entire town.

"Losing Faythe" + "Whispers on the Wind" - Nafaryus and Arabelle arrive and beg Gabriel to use his gift to save Faythe. However, Gabriel can no longer sing after the deafening scream. 

"Hymn of a Thousand Voices" - Attracted by Gabriel's scream, the people show up and start singing, restoring Gabriel hope. He finds the ability to sing once again and brings Faythe back to life. 

"Power Down" - Realizing what he had done, Nafaryus ends the conflict and shuts NOMACS down for good. 

"Our New World" - Daryus is forgiven, while Gabriel and Faythe raise Xander as a family.

"Astonishing" - Finally, Nafaryus vows to be a fair leader, and bring music back to the empire. 

The end.
