Shining (NOR) Release 10th Anniversary Vinyl Edition Of “Blackjazz”, Stream Bonus Track Featuring Ihsahn

Shining (Norway) are celebrating the 10th anniversary of “Blackjazz“ with a new vinyl pressing. This version of the effort comes with a previously unreleased version of “The Madness And The Damage Done” featuring Emperor’s Ihsahn. The band said the following about that track:

“Check out our new single featuring Ihsahn! It’s awesome! The vocals were recorded back in 2010, just after the release of Blackjazz, but Jørgen Munkeby never got his jazzy ass around to finalizing this special version of the song. Until this year, 10 freakin’ years later!”

Me And That Man (Behemoth) Premiere Music Video For New Song “By The River” Feat. Ihsahn

Me And That Man, the blackened blues project featuring Behemoth’s Nergal, have premiered a new video for their new song “By The River.” This track features Ihsahn and it will appear on the band’s new album “New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol. 1,” which is set to be released on March 27.

Nergal commented:

“When the rumours first emerged of me collaborating with Rob Halford and Ihsahn, the idea sparked imaginations. I guess people would expect a Nergal and Ihsahn partnership to be extreme, but what came out was a bare bones, blues banger!

I’ve got to tell you; it wasn’t an easy sell…at first Ihsahn didn’t think there was much he could add – luckily, I knew different and I gave him a simple instruction, ‘have fun’. A week later I got the track back and I was totally blown away!

Considering the status of the man, he is humble and professional to the core. It was my pleasure to work with him and now it’s our pleasure to present to you, ‘By The River’!”

Oathbreaker To Return For 2020 ArcTanGent Festival

Oathbreaker will be returning for this year’s ArcTanGent Festival. This will be the group’s first show since going on hiatus two years ago.

The band commented:

“It’s been over 2 years since the last Oathbreaker show, the dust has settled and the last couple of months we’ve been discussing whether or not to play another show. ArcTanGent felt like the right place to do so. We’re incredibly excited to play these songs again. This will most likely be the only Oathbreaker show in 2020. Hope to see a lot of familiar faces.”

“With the utmost pride and… kind of relief;,I present to you, the second ME AND THAT MAN album — ‘New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol. 1′. This time ’round, I wanted to take on a different challenge and curated an album of 11 songs — each with their own character and vibe, alongside the most talented and important individuals across the whole scene. Together, we take trips to the lands of blues, folk, country and even spaghetti western. Only time will tell if we hit the mark, but I deeply believe so. I’m very proud of this piece of work and it has been a monumental task to achieve.

I would like to thank EACH one of our guests for being part of this project: Mat and Matt, Niklas and Jørgen, Corey, Alan, Addi, Brent, Vegard, Sivert, Anders, Rob, Jerome, Johanna and Nicke. I LOVE you all from here to the moon and back! Without the passion and heart you granted us, this wouldn’t have been possible!”
