Arch Enemy Reveal Cover Art For New Album “Will To Power”

Arch Enemy have revealed the cover art for their new album “Will To Power.“ That effort will be released on September 8 via Century Media.

Michael Amott said the following:

“It was a pleasure working with Alex Reisfar on the ‘Will To Power‘ cover artwork, he immediately grasped the concept and atmosphere we were looking for with this album. We talked about the double edged sword that is human ambition, how it can be outstandingly creative and beautiful but can also be turned into something dark and powerful.

Alex proceeded to masterfully paint a strong image that evokes a lot of feelings. The human skull as a central focal point, the flesh sort of falling off into the circular pattern. The snake ouroboros weaving in and out of the mouths and throats of the severed heads of a wolf, a goat and a vampire bat… All representing self determination and a predatory, almost parasitic will to power”

Cannabis Corpse Premiere New Song “Chronic Breed”, Reveal Details For New Album “Left Hand Pass”

Cannabis Corpse have premiered a new song titled “Chronic Breed,” via Lambgoat. This track is from their new album “Left Hand Pass,” which will be released on September 8.

Phil Hall (Municipal Waste, Iron Reagan) said the following about the new album:

“At long last Cannabis Corpse has come out of its weed induced slumber to bring all y’all head bangers out there a new slab of brutal Death metal. This time around we decided to give our new guitarist Ray Suhy a lot more room to add his own unique flavor to the song writing and riffs. We think what has came out is a fresh sound for Cannabis Corpse.”

Ray Suhy added the following about “Chronic Breed”:

“‘Chronic Breed‘ was one of the last songs we wrote for “Left Hand Pass‘. We rewrote this one a couple of times before we got it to flow the way we wanted it. Hallhammer laid down some killer drum parts and Landphil‘s vocals are some of my favorite that he’s ever done. There’s lots of catchy and brutal moments on this record and ‘Chronic Breed‘ is one of my favorites!”

01. “The 420th Crusade”

Remember that “break” we were taking?

Well…. we lied.

We just spent the last 6 months secretly making a gigantic new foo fighters album with our friend/genius/mastermind Greg Kurstin that will undoubtedly fry stereos from here to Fukuoka. Start saving your speaker money now. Sorry. It’s big.

It’s called Concrete And Gold, comes out Sept. 15th, and has more twists and turns than a live senate hearing. Like a box of really loud chocolates. Hope you’re hungry.

And what better way to celebrate our biggest sounding album ever than to invite 50,000 of you to come throw down with 22 of our favorite bands Oct 7th at the Glen Helen Regional Park + Fairgrounds? That’s right. We throw one hell of a party you know…..

See you there. It’s gonna go off.

Bye”

Josh Todd & The Conflict (Buckcherry) Premiere “Year Of The Tiger” Music Video

Josh Todd & The Conflict, the band featuring Buckcherry’s Josh Todd and Stevie D, along with Sean Winchester and Greg Cash, have premiered a new video for the title track of their new album “Year Of The Tiger.” That effort will be released on September 15.

Todd commented:

“The album’s title track, ‘Year Of The Tiger’, was one of the first songs we wrote for the record and also became one of my favorite songs I have ever written. Like most good songs, it came together very quickly. As soon as Stevie sent me the music, the lyrics and melodies poured out of me.

I’m a huge fan of ‘Hannibal’ and the show ‘Narcos’, while also being into the big cats. In ‘Hannibal’, they had a character that would feed despicable people to his pigs and I thought that was pretty demented and interesting. Also, I am always fascinated with people that have the balls to choose a life of crime, so this track is about a guy living on the edge with a manhunt going on for his life ending in death by tigers.”

“Year Of The Tiger” Track Listing:

01. “Year of the Tiger”
02. “Inside”
03. “Fucked Up”
04. “Rain”
05. “Good Enough”
06. “The Conflict”
07. “Story of My Life”
08. “Erotic City”
09. “Push It”
10. “Atomic”
11. “Rain” (clean version)
