Amon Amarth have shared the third trailer for their new Blu-ray/DVD/CD/LP “The Pursuit Of Vikings: 25 Years In The Eye Of The Storm.” The effort will be released on November 16 and it will feature a documentary, as well as footage from the band’s sets at the 2017 Summer Breeze festival in Dinkelsbühl, Germany. Select editions will also come with a book.
Opeth have shared the third trailer for their new live release, “Garden Of The Titans: Live At Red Rocks Amphitheatre.” The effort will be available on November 2 and it will feature the group’s May 11, 2017 performance at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, CO. The latest clip offers a behind the scenes look at the setup involved in putting on the show.
Billy Graziadei (Biohazard, Powerflo, etc.) has announced that his new BillyBio solo album, “Feed The Fire,” will be released on November 30 via AFM Records. The effort features Ra Diaz (Suicidal Tendencies), Dan Palmer (Death By Stereo, Zebrahead), and Simo Perini (Guttermouth, Implants, etc.) and pre-orders can be found at PledgeMusic. A video for the first single, “Freedoms Never Free,“ will surface later this month. Graziadei commented:
“I’ve always wanted to do a solo release and the timing of everything that I have been working on just seemed to fall in place. I always let the creative juices flow, I don’t try and restrict them to fit a certain genre. With BillyBio, it’s 100% me. No influence from anyone else. This is who I am and what I’ve become. I’m a product of everyone I’ve met, talked with, shared my stories with… and a bit of their stories as well. Anyone who’s a fan of what I’ve done, especially with Biohazard, will love this! There’s something there for every fan of heavy underground music! I’m psyched to release my new music this fall as BillyBio. Launching the band in Europe on tour with my family in Life Of Agony couldn’t get any better!”
A new trailer has been posted for former Megadeth drummer Nick Menza’s posthumous autobiography “Megalife.” That effort will be released on December 11 via Post Hill Press.
Here’s a synopsis:
“With Nick Menza behind the kit, Megadeth transitioned from celebrated cult band to international superstars. Rust in Peace, the first album to feature Menza and Marty Friedman, was instantly considered a classic, sold over a million copies, got nominated for a Grammy Award, and established what many consider to be the definitive Megadeth lineup. It was the beginning of a remarkable run in which the band would release three career-defining albums and tour the world many times over.
Success was a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows: sobriety and addiction, peace and tension, laughter and anger. Until one day it all came crashing down. Despite his contributions to the band’s most iconic and enduring work, when Menza was forced to seek treatment for a debilitating tumor in his knee, he awoke from surgery to learn he was being fired from the band by the man he considered a brother and mentor, the ever-enigmatic Dave Mustaine. The devastating news sent him into a spiral of anger and frustration, followed by a dark period of self-medication that nearly killed him.
Megalife: The Autobiography of Nick Menza is an unflinching look at life inside of one of metal’s most successful bands, from the back of the stage to the bunks on the bus, as well as a blow-by-blow account of the tumultuous, complicated relationship between Menza and Mustaine. It is also the singular story of a self-taught musician who achieved his dreams through sheer will and determination, watched it all disintegrate, and then rebuilt himself from scratch.”
