01. “Burn On The Flame” (new song)
02. “The Immortal”
03. “Dead Inside”
04. “Bury Me An Angel”
05. “Stigmata”
06. “Sinister Mephisto”

Michael Amott told Japan’s “Masa Ito’s Rock TV” the following about the release [transcribed by Blabbermouth]:

“Together with Trooper Entertainment, we’ve put together a compilation of our favorite tracks from the first, second and third album that featured these guys — with Johan [Liiva on vocals] and Chris [Amott on guitar] and everything. And we’ve put together a compilation album of that ’90s material. It’s been remastered here in Japan. I actually attended the mastering session last week, and it sounds incredible. It really brought the old tracks… it gave them a new life. And then we actually recorded two new songs in Sweden. So we’ve been quite busy with that.”

He continued:

“It’s quite complicated getting everybody together to do that. But we wrote these two new songs. I wrote one with Chris, and then I wrote one myself. They’re called ‘Burn On The Flame’ and ‘Life Infernal’ — two brand new tracks that are kind of in the style of what we used to do, I think. And they turned out really amazing too. We actually went back to Fredrik Nordström’s studio, Fredman, where we made the first three records. So we worked with the original producer. And he mixed it, and it sounds really powerful — very cool.”

He went on to say the recording sessions were a “very, very strange” experience, “because [they] just picked it up where [they] left off.” He also added:

“After about an hour or so, we were doing the same kind of jokes and the same kind of chemistry. And the sounds as well. I was thinking maybe it was gonna sound very different. Also because of us — we all progress and change over the years, and develop. And also Fredrik, of course. He had a new studio now, with some different equipment. But actually, he just managed to get that old-school sound. And it was a lot of fun. Kind of a little bit nostalgia.”

Silverstein To Release “Redux: The First Ten Years” In April

Silverstein have announced that they will be releasing a new album titled “Redux: The First 10 Years“ on April 12. The effort will feature 12 re-recorded songs from the first 10 years of the band’s career.

“Redux: The First 10 Years” Track Listing:

01. “Smashed Into Pieces”
02. “Smile In Your Sleep”
03. “American Dream”
04. “Bleeds No More”
05. “My Heroine”
06. “Vices”
07. “Your Sword vs My Dagger”
08. “If You Could See Into My Soul”
09. “Giving Up”
10. “Still Dreaming” (Acoustic)
11. “Red Light Pledge”
12. “Call It Karma”

Vocalist Shane Told said the following:

“The goal was to update the recordings and make them sound the best they can—not change the songs from what has made them resonate with people for so long. You’re going to hear the clarity and dynamics in a new way, but the magic of the original songs is kept intact. It’s going to be fun for fans to crank these up and really hear the songs the way they were meant to be heard. We chose the songs that we thought needed the most in terms of a sound update, and also which songs have spoken to our fans the most. Re-recording ‘Bleeds No More,’ a song I wrote in my bedroom 17 years ago, was a very cool experience as well, as was remembering the entire ‘Discovering The Waterfront‘ recording experience.”

Drummer Paul Koehler also commented:

“I remember writing these songs in basements, demoing them with friends, and testing them on the road. Starting as a hobby, then given the opportunity to fulfill a dream, and all of sudden finding myself in the middle of a real music career. These songs are a cross-section from the early material that helped define our band, along with my own life.”

Guitarist Josh Bradford continued:

“After so many years, it’s a lot of fun for me to revisit these old albums and be transported back in time to when we were creating them. Even through the rose-colored lens of nostalgia, it’s hard not to notice how much recording technology has changed and how much we have grown as musicians in the time since. With this in mind, we’ve decided to give a selection of our favorite tunes a sonic update. These songs clearly mean a lot to people, so we’ve tried our very best to honor the original recordings while making them sound more modern and polished.”

Guitarist Paul Marc Rousseau added:

“These updated versions breathe new life into songs I’ve loved for as long as I can remember. Our goal was to put some polish on old performances while staying faithful to the original arrangements, and though it was challenging deciphering some of the forgotten and buried parts. I had a great time doing it.”

Bassist Billy Hamilton finished:

“The great thing about this collection is that it’s not just mine, it’s not just Silverstein‘s. It’s yours, it’s all of ours, and this is our chance to revisit our cherished songs, memories and feelings.”

Andy Black (Black Veil Brides) To Release New Album “The Ghost Of Ohio” In April, Premieres “Westwood Road” Music Video

Andy Black (Black Veil Brides) has announced that his new solo album “The Ghost Of Ohio” will be released on April 12. You can find a video for the effort’s first single “Westwood Road” below:

Black told Rock Sound the following about the new song:

“‘Westwood Road’ is about being so fucking miserable while sitting in a hotel room and absolutely hating where I am now. It’s thinking ‘this doesn’t represent me at all, this is not who I am’ and thinking of going back to being a kid and enjoying going to football games with my dad and all that sort of stuff. Now as an adult, I actually do all that stuff.”

He also talked about the ties between the album and his “Ghost Of Ohio” graphic novel:

“In many ways, the comic book is a more stylized and heightened version of these stories, because it has to be. When I went to the company who is printing [the novel], I asked them if they could help me shape all of this into a way where it would make sense. I have written concept albums before, but this is my first time putting together a graphic novel. Then the record went from there.”

“The Ghost Of Ohio” Track Listing:

01. “Introduction: Resurrection”
02. “The Promise”
03. “Westwood Road”
04. “Know One”
05. “Soul Like Me”
06. “The Wind & Spark”
07. “Ghost of Ohio”
08. “Heroes We Were”
09. “Feast or Famine”
10. “Heaven”
11. “The Martyr”
12. “Fire In My Mind”

As previously reported, Black will be kicking of his North American tour with The Faim and Kulick in April.
