Lindsay Schoolcraft (Cradle Of Filth) To Release New Solo Album In October

Lindsay Schoolcraft (Cradle Of Filth) has announced that her debut solo album “Martyr” will be released on October 7. The effort was co-written by ex-Evanescence drummer Rocky Gray and it will feature 11 tracks. Schoolcraft commented:

“At last I can finally share with the world what I’ve been so vaguely teasing online for years. I can’t thank my fans enough for being so patient about this release. Working with Rocky Gray has been a dream come true for me and the love I have for his work and my lyrical stories really shines through on this album. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did creating and recording it.”


Stone Temple Pilots Finish New Album

During an appearance on “Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon” Jeff Gutt revealed that Stone Temple Pilots have finished their new album. The effort is expected to be released in 2020.

Gutt previously called the album an “acoustic record,” but he has since clarified saying there were “no rules on it having to be acoustic or anything, [but] it has a vibe to it, and it’s beautiful.” He went on to confirm that “it’s all new songs.”

He also added:

“With the ‘Purple’ thing happening, it’s pushing back the other thing. ‘Cause we were only supposed to do a few songs, and it turned into a full record, ’cause we had so much creativity happening at the time. So we just made a whole record.”

Gutt also said the music is “definitely different” and that “it’s a very beautiful record” that he is “really happy with.”

Skillet Premiere “Legendary” Music Video

Skillet have premiered a new video for their song “Legendary.” This track is from the band’s new album “Victorious,” which will be released on August 2.

John Cooper told People the following:

“The message behind the song that is so important for our world is simply to live your life the way you think you should. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, and don’t be afraid to go against the crowd.

You only have one life to live, so make it count for the things you believe and the people you love. That’s how you live a legendary life.”

He continued:

“The video needed to be modern and even a little surreal. We are talking about our lives being the best versions of ourselves that we can be. But life is short, so don’t waste your time.

This has a certain metaphysical element to it — that we are living in the ‘right here right now,’ but then our lives will be over and all that’s left is what we stood for. That’s why I wanted the video to have a transcendental quality and tons of lighting effects to give being a supernatural quality to the song. And tons and tons of energy!”

He also added:

“‘Legendary’ felt like the right first single because it’s so high energy. It feels like a song that should be played in a stadium while your favorite team is winning. It’s energetic, positive, and inspiring. It’s what the world needs to hear right now.”

Metal Anarchy’s New Music Showcase: Exclusive Q&A With Emma Garell

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 Emma Garell.

METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:

EMMA GARELL: As for music…just pure rock n’ roll. We are slowly replacing our cover set with originals. We are excited to have just hired a new guitarist, Camden Harrahy. Camden and I have played together off and on since 2015 either in tribute shows at School of Rock or as my drummer in my old cover band, Bismuth. We just had our first show together with everyone and it was like we had always played together. CJ Alicea on drums and Sammy P. Stiles on bass have been with me since day one for this project, September 2018.

METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?

EMMA GARELL: Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Joan Jett, The Pretty Reckless and Highly Suspect.

METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?

EMMA GARELL: “Destination Anaheim”, they should check it out because pure rock n’ roll in making a comeback with my generation.

METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?

EMMA GARELL: You should expect a rock n’ roll show. I see people looking surprised that I am not the quiet little girl that I look like. After they get past that “what the fuck” moment they are singing and headbanging along. We play some familiar tunes along with our classic rock inspired originals, I hope they feel that familiarity in our originals.

METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

EMMA GARELL: hat seems to far away, but hopefully still making music, touring and playing bigger festivals.
