ABOUT SLEEP TOKEN:
2023 was the year of Sleep Token and 2024 is looking to be much the same.

The album has generated 400 million streams, whilst standout single “The Summoning” has generated 150 million streams alone, causing the track to trend on Twitter and take the #1 song spot on a host of international Spotify viral charts, as well as being selected as a “YouTube Trending Artist On The Rise,” featuring on YouTube’s homepage, viewed by millions of people every day.

The unprecedented accolades keep rolling in, between the fact that ST has never played a headline show in the UK that didn’t sell out, “Aqua Regia” picking up consistent airplay on the Radio One “Future Sounds” show hosted by Clara Amfo, plus huge pop star Demi Lovato sharing Sleep Token’s music with her 153 million Instagram followers, Sleep Token consistently smash boundaries that they refused to acknowledge in the first place.

And even though Sleep Token notoriously do not speak to the press (out of necessity, not ego or gimmick), media can’t help but write about the phenomenon, reporting on the band’s every move; NME note, “Sleep Token offer their fans an entire world to immerse themselves in if they so wish. It’s a place of escapism, and the foundation of a huge fan community that’s dedicated to studying the band’s creativity. While they have the same fervor as any other fandom, there’s still a notable difference.” Elsewhere, Metal Hammer called them “the most exciting band in metal right now.”

ABOUT EMPIRE STATE BASTARD
Having recently released their widely celebrated debut album Rivers of Heresy, Empire State Bastard is led by Simon Neil (Biffy Clyro) and Mike Vennart (Biffy Clyro live guitarist and solo artist, ex-Oceansize), and features the legendary Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Testament, Mr. Bungle) on drums, with Naomi Macleod (Bitch Falcon) rounding out the live line-up on bass. The concept for Empire State Bastard emerged when Neil and Vennart would spend downtime on tour sitting at the back of their bus sharing the heaviest, most avant-garde and confrontational music they could find. Now, a decade on from its conception, the project has finally come to fruition with the release of Rivers of Heresy, a collection of songs which adventurously probes slamming hardcore in the vein of Siege; the frenetic, visceral thrash of Slayer; the claustrophobic sludge of Melvins; the freeform vocal dexterity of Mike Patton; and the gargantuan stoner riffs of Sleep. Empire State Bastard is a band that’s rooted in the tradition of metal’s forefathers but informed by more recent waves of leftfield aggression.

NOLA thrash and groove trailblazers EXHORDER have announced spring 2024 US tour dates with Bay Area thrash legends VIO-LENCE, Virginian extreme metalheads DECEASED and LA death metal band MORTAL WOUND.

Commenting on the impending tour, EXHORDER states:

To share a bill with Vio-Lence on two separate tours this coming year is something that we are looking forward to immensely. We will join Deceased and Mortal Wound in the process of getting the evening started! Get off of your couches and come support live music- if we can make it, so can you!

About EXHORDER:

Formed in 1986, EXHORDER’s journey has proven exciting, yet tumultuous. After a twenty-seven-year absence following their final Roadrunner Records release in 1992, EXHORDER re-entered the game with an album considered by many to be a contender for the “Best Comeback Album” category. The band released Mourn the Southern Skies in October of 2019 through Nuclear Blast Records. Fraught with euphoric peaks and crippling valleys throughout its existence, lineup changes, and the 2020-2021 pandemic, EXHORDER has since clawed back through the muck to prepare yet another album to add to their iconic discography to be revealed next year.

Andreas Kisser | guitars

Paulo Jr. | bass

Sepultura have today issued the following statement…

Sepultura has reached the end of the road and has chosen to depart via a conscious and planned death.

Throughout the next 18 months we will celebrate 40 years of existence together along with our loyal fans on a farewell tour across the entire globe.

It will be a celebration of the past and the present for one final time.

After 4 decades filled with ups and downs, having visited 80 countries and countless different cultures, we’ve had the chance to become Brazil’s messenger to the world and spread our colors and rhythms worldwide. With our latest studio album Quadra, a highlight of our career, we added an unforgettable chapter followed by the SepulQuarta experience that helped us to overcome the difficult times of the pandemic together. We will unite our forces for one final, strong farewell. And all of you can be a part of it.

During this 40th anniversary tour, we will record 40 live tracks in 40 different cities and release a massive compilation of our best, most energetic moments on stage.
We are happy and very grateful for everything we could witness within the past four decades. We have released great albums and played unforgettable shows, cultivated friendships, met our idols, contributed to placing Brazilian metal on the world map, and therefore feel that we can leave the music scene with a sense of duty fulfilled.

We’ve always had the best fans in the world, who supported us with praise and criticism, who were demanding and intelligent, who grew together with the band and have always been loyal. Without you, none of this would have been possible. This album and this tour are for you. Dear SepulNation – we love you and always will!

Euthanasia, the right to a dignified death. The right to choose to live free and to choose when you die!”


Europe, Sepultura will celebrate with you for one final time together. As special guests, Ukrainian progressive metal highflyers Jinjer will join them on all 20 dates, alongside old-school death metallers Obituary and Philadelphia’s Jesus Piece.

AMON AMARTH continues to tour in support of their critically adored The Great Heathen Armyfull-length. Recorded with esteemed studio guru Andy Sneap and released in 2022, the record represents another bold leap forward for the band, as their trademark sound undergoes yet another skillful, evolutionary overhaul, both lyrically and musically. From the noisily rabble-rousing “Find A Way Or Make One” and the pummeling, pugilistic “Get In The Ring” to the cinematic squall of the title track, The Great Heathen Army encapsulates the essence of this legendary band, while still allowing acres of space for new ideas.

Wrote Louder Sound of the offering, “The Great Heathen Army is simultaneously everything that helped AMON AMARTH climb to the top in the first place and a return to the darker, less showy sound of their early days… the band’s innate sense for fist-pumping riffs and colossal hooks remains impossible to deny.” Concurred Blabbermouth, “Both an unapologetic, festival-ready dose of new, gleaming, Viking-populated anthems, and one of the darkest and most brutal albums they have yet made, The Great Heathen Army feels celebratory, too — an extravagant blowout to mark the start of the next invasion.”

Fans can check out a teaser for the upcoming video “Saxons and VikingsHERE and can preview and purchase The Great Heathen Armyat: metalblade.com/amonamarth

Formed in Tumba, Sweden, in 1992, AMON AMARTH has forged an extraordinary legacy over three decades of thunderous, anthemic metal, all rich in the magical imagery of Viking history, folklore and culture. With albums like 2008’s widely acclaimed Twilight Of The Thunder God and 2016’s conceptual triumph Jomsviking, the Swedes have been consistent standard bearers for heavy metal as a life-affirming and communal experience, armed with a seemingly endless stream of instant classic songs.

Order the Recent Album, Return to the Kingdom of Fife, HERE

Attention, all fans of music, cinema, literature and art! Liberators of the known universe, power metal legends GLORYHAMMER, return this winter from the Kingdom of Fife with a special cover-song previously heard only by few! The mighty GLORYHAMMERhave released the new cover single “Mighty Wings”, originally performed by Cheap Trick and featured on the ‘Top Gun’ soundtrack!

The song doesn’t hold anything back – diving into nostalgic action straight away with catchy, chanting choir-backed vocals and powerful drums. As the massive power metal track proceeds with catchy keyboard melody leads, it’s backed by strong metal drumming and topped with soaring, chanting vocals. Infusing the electrified 80s pop rock of Cheap Trick’s Top Gun-classic with their own brand of bombast and power, “Mighty Wings” is both a crowning memento of nostalgia and a daring glance into the future, in which anything is possible!

But that is not all – your favorite power metal warriors are currently gearing up to embark on extensive tours throughout Europe and North America – so buckle up and make sure to not miss GLORYHAMMER‘s grandiose spectacle near you! See below for all current tour dates.

GLORYHAMMER regale us:
“Mighty winged warriors! For many years now, the Top Gun OST, and in particular, Cheap Trick’s standout track ‘Mighty Wings’ has been a constant in our lives – the eagle-eared amongst you shall have heard it countless times in our pre-show playlist. When recording Return to the Kingdom of Fife last winter, we decided to pay homage to the song that defined so many great moments for us by recording our own, distinctly GLORYHAMMER cover version. Previously only available on limited vinyl, we now invite the entire world to bask in its resplendence, as the final single to be released from RttKoF before we begin work on the forthcoming album! Talk to me, Hoots!”

“When a newly restructured PANTERA took the stage at Milwaukee’s American Family Insurance Amphitheater, the chorus of cheers that greeted them was a voluminous mix of both excitement and disbelief.” — Illinois Entertainer

“…a true tribute to the legacy of the Abbott brothers and the music they helped create. It is also a gift to the many fans that have gotten goosebumps from the raw power that PANTERA is able to harness like no other band.” — The Intelligencer

“…an emotional tribute to the music the quartet made.” — TribLIVE

“Anselmo, Brown, Wylde, and Benante masterfully honored the band’s legacy while embracing a new chapter, standing as a testament to the indomitable spirit of heavy metal. In a genre defined by resilience, PANTERA’s triumphant return is nothing short of remarkable.” — All Music Magazine

“As PANTERA closed its set with the opening riff of ‘Cowboys From Hell’ playing behind them, Anselmo asked the packed stadium who would come to see them in the future. The response would be one of the evening’s loudest.” — Dallas Observer

Creators of the “power groove,” PANTERA got their start in Arlington, Texas with its best-known lineup, consisting of founding members and brothers, drummer Vinnie Paul and guitarist Dimebag Darrell, with bassist Rex Brown and vocalist Philip H. Anselmo. The group would become one the most successful and influential bands in heavy metal history. To date, PANTERA has sold 20 million records worldwide and has received four Grammy nominations along with sold out arena tours across the globe.

The God Machine marks another pinnacle in Blind Guardian‘s impressive discography by not attempting to pretend that it is still the nineties, yet successfully relying on the muscle memory of this period. It is a gripping, addictive, and brilliantly arranged album in the tradition of records with which Blind Guardian reached for the stars in the 90s; yet, by no means is it a throwback. The God Machine represents the heart and soul of Blind Guardian‘s timeless metal in the here and now, unifying the bards’ past, present, and future secrets in one consistent, well-thought-out masterpiece.

In 1992, Blind Guardian released Somewhere Far Beyond, a legendary milestone of modern speed metal. Three decades later, their latest offering, The God Machine, demonstrates how to awaken the fury of youth to a magical new life. As if they had paid a long overdue visit to the numerous highlights of their career, Blind Guardian appears to be in touch with the ghosts of their past more than ever.

Seven years after Beyond The Red Mirror and almost three after the orchestral opus Blind Guardian Twilight Orchestra: Legacy of the Dark Lands, Hansi Kürsch (vocals), André Olbrich (lead guitar, acoustic guitar, rhythm guitar), Marcus Siepen (rhythm guitar and acoustic guitar) and Frederik Ehmke (drums) invite you to their personal twilight of the gods.
