96 Bitter Beings (Ex-CKY) Sign With Nuclear Blast Records

96 Bitter Beings, the band featuring Deron Miller (ex-CKY), have signed a new deal with Nuclear Blast Records. The band’s new album, “Synergy Restored,” will be released through the label later this year.

Miller commented:

“Nuclear Blast has always been the most personable label I’ve ever worked with. They stuck around and persevered through all of the hard times that hit heavy rock and metal over the years. They’re still here because they always put their love of what they do ahead of scrounging around frantically to make a quick buck. I have 27 years behind me working with various labels, major and independent, and they’re all gone. The people are gone. Nuclear has been the only constant. Passion, perseverance and refusing defeat are the keys to longevity in anything you do, so that makes us the perfect match. The band and I are thrilled to be working with rock and metal heads I’ve known and respected for decades… Still just as hungry, ambitious and excited to see what the future holds as we are.”

Former Accept Members Peter Baltes & Udo Dirkschneider Guest On Howling Giant’s Cover Of AC/DC’s “Shoot To Thrill”

Ex-Accept members Peter Baltes and Udo Dirkschneider are featured on Howling Giant’s cover of AC/DC’s “Shoot To Thrill.” You can check that out below. The track is from Magnetic Eye Records‘ “Back In Black“ tribute album, which will be released on December 3 alongside another AC/DC tribute album called “Best Of AC/DC [Redux].”

Peter’s son Sebastian Baltes, who handles bass and vocals for Howling Giant, commented:

“I’ve loved ‘Shoot To Thrill’ and AC/DC since the first time I have heard this track at the age of eight. This great classic very much embodies the sound of the Australian giants. Being able to arrange our own version while working with my father and Udo has been a wonderful opportunity that brought things full circle.”

Peter added:

“AC/DC has been the soundtrack to my life. A few years back, we [Accept] were opening for two giant AC/DC shows in Germany, which, to me, was one of the greatest experiences ever.”
