ACCEPT just keeps that metal train rolling like a juggernaut that just can’t be stopped.  Since releasing ‘Blood of Nations’ back in 2010, ACCEPT have been the recipient of a revitalized career that most bands of their age could only dream of and all the younger bands would hope they could only have 1/10th of the success of.  Since their comeback album, ACCEPT has released hit album after hit album filled with classic metal riffs and great lyrical themes.  Continue reading Music Review: ACCEPT Album: The Rise of Chaos

Finland’s Mausoleum Gate Releasing ‘Into a Dark Divinity’ September 8 on Cruz Del Sur Music

 

MAUSOLEUM GATE’s 2014 self-titled debut album was not as much of a revelation as it was a reminder of how vintage metal should be played. Bucking virtually every modern production trend, the Finns greeted audiences with a warm analog production sound, flanked by the star-gazing vocals of V-P Varpula and the classy twin guitar action of
Count LaFey and Kasperi Puranen. Critical and fan acclaim soon followed, along with key festival appearances at Keep It True and Muskelrock, with many hailing
MAUSOLEUM GATE as one of the most exciting new retro metal bands on the scene. Continue reading Finland’s Mausoleum Gate Releasing ‘Into a Dark Divinity’ September 8 on Cruz Del Sur Music

DORO PESCH: Video Interview Posted Online

Metal-Rules.com conducted an interview with German metal queen Doro Pesch aboard 70000 Tons Of Metal, the world’s biggest heavy metal cruise, which sailed on January 28 from Miami, Florida and returned to the real world on February 1. You can now watch the chat below.

Pesch‘s latest album, “Raise Your Fist”, sold 585 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 65 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

In a recent interview with Lords Of Metal, Doro stated about her expectations for “Raise Your Fist”, “I will be very happy when the fans say they love the record; that’s the most important for me. I really don’t keep up with numbers, which are, in my opinion, great to talk about afterwards. It’s nice if we will be able to make the charts again, but to me, those kind of things don’t really matter. Much more important is that the fans dig the songs in a live situation and, since we already played ‘Raise Your Fist’ several times live, the first signs are very positive.”
