Moonspell Reveal Cover Art & Track Listing For New Portuguese-Language Album “1755”

Moonspell have revealed the cover art and track listing for their new Portuguese-language album “1755.” The effort, which focuses on the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, will be released on November 3.

“1755” Track Listing:

01. “Em Nome Do Medo”
02. “1755”
03. “In Tremor Dei” (feat. Paulo Bragança)
04. “Desastre”
05. “Abanão”
06. “Evento”
07. “1 De Novembro”
08. “Ruínas”
09. “Todos Os Santos”
10. “Lanterna Dos Afogados”

Fernando Ribeiro commented:

“I have been fascinated with Portuguese history since I can remember.

The year of 1755 marked the birth of a new Portugal. Much more than just the greatest natural disaster ever to occur on European soil, the great Lisbon Quake, shockwaves cannot be reduced to a dramatic death toll.

From absolute tragedy, a new city was born, giving way to a new time where Portuguese relied more on themselves than on the crown or the cross, granting us much of the city, the lay country, the free will that we enjoy today.

This is not just another album from us. It’s a musical and lyrical history document, a homage we pay to our legacy and to the amazing skills and resilience of our fellow Portuguese back then, of all mankind when brought down to the knees by the violent forces of nature and reason. Whatever is, is right… yet the earth shakes.”

Fireball Ministry Reveal “Remember The Story” Cover Art & Track Listing

Fireball Ministry have revealed the cover art and track listing for their new album “Remember The Story.” That effort will be released on October 6.

“Remember The Story” Track Listing:

01. “End Of Our Truth”
02. “Everything You Wanted”
03. “Back On Earth”
04. “The Answer”
05. “Dying To Win”
06. “Stop Talking”
07. “Weaver’s Dawn”
08. “Remember The Story”
09. “All For Naught”
10. “I Don’t Believe A Word”

Emily J Burton said the following:

“‘Remember The Story’ is about moving forward while staying connected to your past. With this album we’ve reached a new stage of crystallization and prowess in our riffage.”

James A Rota added:

“This is a very personal record to me and was written from down deep. It’s also an honor to be playing alongside Emily [Burton] and John [Oreshnick] for the last twenty years. Having Scott [Reeder] with us along for the ride has made our greatest music to date, in my humble opinion.”

Caitlin Mattisso, who created the cover art, also commented:

“The vulture represents renewal and transformation and has connections to many mythologies and cultures, from being descended from Griffins in Greek mythology to the scientific (Latin) name of Turkey Vulture translating to Golden Purifier, which ties in to Jim’s theme about a second chance at life. Elements inspired by Hildgard of Bingen have been worked into the border shapes, as well as two blown-out candles on the front. The book on the front is a Fireball Ministry hymnal shooting light. On the back of the album the candles are lit again and the vulture is flying away towards a new moon, new beginning.”

Mastodon Reportedly Plan To Release New Album “Cold Dark Place” In September

Mastodon’s Brent Hinds previously talked about a new album called “Cold Dark Place“ and it was either supposed to be a solo album of his or an add on to make “Emperor Of Sand” a double album. Obviously neither of those happened, but now it appears it will be released as a separate Mastodon album. Hinds shared the apparent cover art in the below Instagram post, and an Amazon listing said it would arrive on September 22.

New jamZ coming soon!🎶🤘🏿

In June 2016 Hinds told Guitar World the flowing about “Cold Dark Place”:

“One is an album I wrote myself, and recorded with Brann and Troy during the ‘Once More ‘Round The Sun‘ sessions. My part is called ‘Cold Dark Place‘, and it has to do with a nasty breakup that I went through. I wrote some pretty dark, beautiful, spooky, funky, ethereal, melancholy music, which also sounds like the Bee Gees a little bit. [laughs]”

10 Years Premiere New Song “Novacaine”, Reveal Details For New Album “(How To Live) As Ghosts”

10 Years have premiered a new song titled “Novacaine.” This song is from their new album “(How To Live) As Ghosts,” which will be released on October 27.

“(How To Live) As Ghosts” is significant due to the fact that it marks the return of Brian Vodinh and Matt Wantland. Vodinh was in charge of drums and guitars in the studio, and will handle guitar duties live as well. Wantland will also be on guitar, while Chad Huff has been moved over to bass. The lineup is completed by Kyle Mayer, who will continue to handle drumming duties at live shows, and of course, vocalist Jesse Hasek. Hasek said the following about these lineup shifts:

“It’s funny. I named our last record ‘From Birth To Burial‘ because I thought it was our final record. It just didn’t feel like 10 Years without Brian and Matt, and having them back is really a reunion of the core writing team. This new record actually feels like a real rebirth for the band.”

He also added the following about “Novacaine“:

“Six albums and a hundred songs in, I wondered if I’ve already written my best stuff. But at some point, you start to get real adult problems. You see people go from such optimism in their 20s to having life just beat them down later. I think we all kind of get desensitized and numb to life on some level. That’s what this song is about.”

“(How To Live) As Ghosts” Track Listing:

01. “The Messenger”
02. “Novacaine”
03. “Burnout”
04. “Catacombs”
05. “Ghosts”
