Petbrick (Ex-Sepultura, Etc.) Premiere New Song “Radiation Facial” Feat. Full Of Hell’s Dylan Walker

Petbrick, the project featuring Igor Cavalera (Cavalera Conspiracy, ex-Sepultura, etc.) and Wayne Adams (Big Lad, Death Pedals, etc.), have premiered a new song titled “Radiation Facial.” This track features Full Of Hell’s Dylan Walker and it will appear on the the duo’s debut album “I,” which is set to be released on October 25.

Cavalera commented:

“Radiation Facial is combination of minds moving forward on full speed, first with the music, and then with the additional vocal madness of one of my favorite singers of this new generation, the amazing Dylan Walker…The video is a full dive into the mind of the director James Alec Hardy…a perfect combination of images that leaves lots of space for our imagination to fly, something that personally I believe is missing on a lot of music videos and movies.”

Adams added:

“Dylan is the best vocalist from any heavy act I’ve seen perform in the last few years. When I caught Full Of Hell at the Underworld in Camden last year, it blew my mind! So when Iggor said he had spoken to him and he was game to do some vocals for us I was so excited, and I think the result speaks for itself. It’s a total banger!

So slimy, so weird, and damn classy! I think James has found that perfect line between cult, weird and the abstract that feeds directly from his primary practice as a visual artist. It feels very original, very in tune with the music and really quite beautiful.”

The Sword’s Bryan Richie Launches New Project Galactic Protector

The Sword’s Bryan Richie has launched new project called Galactic Protector and he is planning to release a new album, titled “Evening,” on June 28 via Burning Witches Records. You can check out the effort’s first single below:

Richie commented:

“I started demoing out song ideas for the next Sword full length almost immediately after the album cycle for our album ‘High Country‘ was finished.

While we were recording ‘Used Future‘, and as my band mates would be recording overdubs, I’d be tracking keys or processing midi in another room!

Some of the pieces I was writing were really exciting to me but most definitely not potential Sword songs, although the song that I wrote using Jimmy‘s drums, called ‘Intermezzo‘ did end up on ‘Used Future‘.

I kept writing and writing and eventually I had a grip of tracks — performed, programmed and recorded by myself — that led me to entertain the idea of a solo album, and Galactic Protector was born.”

Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to artists that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Vanilla Sugar.

METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your music:

VANILLA SUGAR: Vanilla Sugar is made of Alternative / Electronic music, a pop vocal sensibility, with a Metal influence.

METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?

VANILLA SUGAR: I find a lot of inspiration in Sleigh Bells, Grimes, Korn, The Prodigy, and Mindless Self Indulgence.

VANILLA SUGAR: Ideally, I see Vanilla Sugar continuing to tour globally, and releasing a few more albums by that time.

The Prodigy’s Keith Flint Took Drugs Before His Death

According to BBC, The Prodigy’s Keith Flint had unspecified amounts of cocaine, alcohol, and codeine in his system when he passed away. The singer died on March 4 as a result hanging, but Senior Coroner for Essex, Caroline Beasley-Murray has since concluded that there was not enough evidence to officially rule it as a suicide or an accident.

Beasley-Murray said the following:

“We will never quite know what was going on in his mind on that date.

I’ve considered suicide. To record that, I would have to have found that, on the balance of probabilities, Mr Flint formed the idea and took a deliberate action knowing it would result in his death.

Having regard to all the circumstances, I don’t find that there’s enough evidence for that.”

The coroner also added that there was not enough evidence to record Flint’s death as an accident where he may have been “larking around and it all went horribly wrong.”

This news comes after The Prodigy recently shared a message regarding mental health:
