Fuel Return With New Singer John Corsale, Tease New Song “Hard”

Fuel have officially returned with a new lineup consisting of guitarist Carl Bell, drummer Kevin Miller, singer/guitarist John Corsale, guitarist Mark Klotz, and bassist Tommy Nat. The band’s new album, “Ånomåly,” is set to be released in October and a teaser for its first single, “Hard,” can be found below. The full track will be released on July 9.

Bell commented:

“We were just patient with each other. From the first conversation, I recognized the same feeling in Kevin’s voice. Fuel was huge for us. It was a great moment in our lives, and Kevin was as grateful for the opportunities that Fuel gave us as I was. We bonded on that fact. I would’ve taken a bullet for him — I still would.”

Miller continued:

“For me, new beginnings are exciting, but more often than not, they scare the shit out of me. As much as I love touching my toe to new water, I’m always afraid of the creatures lingering in the depths. I am incredibly excited about this new venture and new lineup of FUEL. Making this record shed a lot of light on what will be, such an amazing amount of talent in this band.”

Bell also added:

“A few months ago, I had no idea I would be returning to Fuel full time, so when it happened, my first call was to Kevin. He simply said, ‘I have the band. I promise you, these are the guys.’ He was right. All are great musicians, and John is this 26-year-old great guitarist as well as a great vocalist and frontman. He sounds fantastic on the album and amazing on our previous hits as well. From the moment I first heard him play and sing, I thought, ‘Wow… This just got real interesting.'”

Anette Olzon (Ex-Nightwish) Premieres “Parasite” Music Video

Anette Olzon (The Dark Element, ex-Nightwish) has premiered a new video for her new song “Parasite.” This track is from her new album “Strong,” which will be released on September 10.

Olzon commented:

“‘Parasite’ is a song about those who create disaster in this world with their lies, their schemes, their greed and hate. Hiding their intentions behind a respectable facade. Living in a world of a bit of chaos with a pandemic, crazy politics, violence, social media behavior and people venting their opinions upon others all the time is the foundation behind the idea of the lyrics for the album. Musically, I wanted a much heavier album, yet with strong melodies and took my inspiration from bands I like such as Dimmu Borgir and In Flames.”

Amaranthe Premiere Music Video For New Song “Strong” Featuring Battle Beast’s Noora Louhimo

Amaranthe have premiered a new video for their new song “Strong.” This track features Battle Beast’s Noora Louhimo and it will appear on the band’s new album “Manifest,” which is set to be released on October 2. Amaranthe said the following about the song:

“Devil and saint, martyr and sinner, betrayal and loyalty — ‘Strong’ essentially underlines the dualistic nature of what it means to be human. In an increasingly polarized world, we found it incredibly exciting to reach across the metal world, and find collaboration and unity with the phenomenal Noora Louhimo. Even if the world around you is on fire, and if you find yourself at a disadvantage, remember that there is always one part of you that will remain — ‘Strong’.”
