JUDAS PRIEST – March of the Damned

Posted in Music, New Music, News with tags , , , , on May 20, 2014 by Tickets There

10325776_10152382509087435_7408559449680967478_nJudas Priest are spoiling us silly these days. They’ve gone and released a new single from their forthcoming album, Redeemer of Souls, which is due in shops this July.

The single is titled ‘March of the Damned’ and it’s a solid tune performed in classic Priest style. A little restrained for my liking so far, but definitely growing on me and another positive nod for the quality of the new LP. Bring on THE PRIEST!

Judas Priest Release New Song

10255072_10152314542173965_2088666024310493212_oJUDAS PRIEST ARE BACK!

‘Redeemer of Souls’ is the first new Priest track since 2008’s Nostradamus! Can you believe it’s been that long? Since then they’ve announced their retirement, parted company with legendary guitarist, K. K. Downing, hired Richie Faulkner to replace him and rebuked the retirement announcement. Us Ireland folks were lucky to catch them back in 2009 when they played an epic show here with Megadeth and Testament providing support. Now, we finally have the Priest back on form.

Redeemer of Souls is the title track from their forthcoming seventeenth studio album. It’s a pretty classic slice of good old fashioned studs ‘n’ leather metal. Halford sounds great, the guys sound great – ALL HAIL PRIEST! Call that a review? Yes I do. Never mind my opinion, give it a listen as see what you think.

Tickets There did not put in the work for this one, but the excellent Irish Metal Archive did and fair dues – what a savage band.

Based in Kildare and Carlow, the group are influenced by the likes of Judas Priest, W.A.S.P. Ozzy and a whole plethora of classic eighties icons and they’ve found a way to harness that sound and deliver some fresh, riff heavy metal. I’ve just given their debut EP a spin on the recommendation of IMA and wow – savage stuff.

Check out the band’s Bandcamp Page now and try them out. Three great tunes and definitely a band worth getting very excited about…well, once they hire a bass player.

SLAYER: New Music and Return to Ireland!

img_50162014 is definitely looking much brighter than last year for the mightiest of all gods – SLAYER. Flash back to this time last year and the world was just days away from hearing the news that founding guitarist and chief songwriter, Jeff Hanneman had passed. After years battling a flesh eating virus, Jeff finally succumbed to his hidden battle with alcohol leaving the recording and touring of the band in immediate doubt. To top things off, Dave Lombardo – Slayer’s long time suffering drummer had been unceremoniously kicked out just weeks before and his permanent replacement (Paul Bostaph) was still to be announced. No founding drummer, no chief songwriter – a sad time for Slayer and their fans.

img_5062A month later Slayer took to the stage in The Academy, Dublin for the first of three Irish shows and all worries about the bands stability went out the window. They rampaged through two blinding sets in Dublin before heading to Belfast and doing it all over again. The band looked and sounded great, with Jeff’s replacement (GARY ‘THE LEGEND’ HOLT!) filling the part like a pro and Paul easily slipping back into his old chair behind the iconic Tom and Kerry. The band made little reference to Jeff’s passing, but rumours circulated that Slayer were now at an end in recording terms. Thankfully that turned out to be bullshit as they’ve just surprised the world with a brand new tune – ‘Implode’. Not a bad song at all and one that’s currently monopolizing the TT cans. Scroll down further and give it many, many spins. (You can also download it for free from Slayer.net)

img_5072TO TOP IT OFF – tickets for Slayer’s recently announced three Irish shows go on sale tomorrow morning. This time they’re hitting Belfast twice on June 29th and 30th and Dublin’s Academy on July 1st. With new material, some time between Jeff’s passing and the dismissal of Dave – things are finally in motion to move into a new era for Slayer. If ‘Implode’ is anything to go by, we have nothing to worry about. The future is blood, the future is SLAYER!

AND – to all those giving out that Slayer shouldn’t do anything without Jeff and Dave- shit up your face. A band that’s been together that long are like a family. It’s everything and you seriously expect Tom and Kerry to give up their entire lives, after three decades together because some of their family have moved on or they’ve had a falling out with someone? Life stinks, shit happens – you move on. That’s how it is so deal with it.

SLAYER!

Arguably the most notorious black metal band of all time, MAYHEM have just released a brand new single from their forthcoming, as yet untitled album. Psywar can be heard below and the video even contains lyrics. Mayhem’s seventh album is due for release in May.

This is Mayhem’s first release in many a year so enjoy!

*UPDATED*: Just had a couple of listens to the song and it’s pretty savage to say the least. Well worth the seven year wait for new material. It’s great to see Mayhem still going strong, Must feature them more often on this site.

Aibourne Playing Dublin – Tickets There Too Selfish to care!

47396Would you look at that! TT was so wrapped up in their bullsh*t to even notice Airbourne have gone and schedule a show at Dublin’s Academy on October 22nd.  The dirty rockers are plugging their new album, Black Dog Barking which came out back in May. Haven’t seen them before but it should be a great gig. According to the article I’m currently reading / stealing from, they’re well worth checking out.. so that’s good.

For this writer, I’ll be happy so long as they play ‘Runnin’ Wild’! Tickets for their show are on sale from today priced 25 quid.
