MEGADETH – ‘Megadeth: Another Time, A Different Place’ Photography Book In March

MTV Press, will release on March 13 the new “Megadeth: Another Time, A Different Place” Book. It features images from the very beginning of the band. This is the first MEGADETH photography book and only the second book documenting their rise to rock glory.

It also includes rare and never-before-seen photographs representing a small but crucial period of time in their career. Author Bill Hale‘s photographs, from intimate backstage photographs to screaming, kinetic live shots, are the images of a young band prepared to take on the world.

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine writes in the foreword:

“The ‘work’ that you hold in your hands now is the work of a friend, who is also a ‘photo-grrrrrrr-apher,’ and who has captured the very essence of my career: hungry, gritty, hard, cold, impersonal, personal, and very personal. Also, the sensitive unseen side of me, which was somewhat of an anomaly with the public and left me an enigma to my peers.”

ADRENALINE MOB – Debut ‘Undaunted’ Video Released

ADRENALINE MOB, formed by Mike Portnoy (ex-DREAM THEATER), vocalist Russell Allen (SYMPHONY X), and guitarist Mike Orlando, will release “OMERTÁ“, their debut full-length album on March 13th via Elm City Music in conjunction with EMI Label Services, and right now the first single ‘Undaunted‘ is available on iTunes. Check the video below for the same song:

Adrenaline Mob recently parted ways with guitarist Rich Ward (STUCK MOJO, FOZZY) and bassist Paul DiLeo. Portnoy issued the following 0statement:

“Rich Ward (guitar; STUCK MOJO, FOZZY) and Paul (DiLeo; bass) are no longer part of Adrenaline Mob. The core of this band has always been the three of us (including SYMPHONY X vocalist Russell Allen and SONIC STOMP guitarist Mike Orlando). The album was written and recorded that way. We later added Rich and Paul as part of the original touring lineup and we had a blast touring with them. However, they both had other projects and priorities and could not give a full-time commitment to Adrenaline Mob. We’re all still friends and we wish them all the best in their other bands, but for now, our focus is entirely on Adrenaline Mob, the release of Omertà on 3/13/12, and hitting the road hard and playing for you all soon!” 


“Omertá” tracklist:

01. Undaunted
02. Psychosane

BORKNAGAR – New Album Details

BORKNAGAR have completed the works on their new studio album, entitled, “URD”, due on March 26 in Europe and March 27 in North America via  Century Media Records. Recordings were held in Örebro, Sweden, with Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (OPETHPARADISE LOST, HEAVENWOODKATATONIA, among others).

Commented Øystein G. Brun:

“Our new album,’Urd’, was finished in mid December and all in all we spent about six months to record, produce and mix it. In the ‘Bork-World’ this isn’t really long, but I can assure you that we have never before invested so much time, energy and effort into one single production. It has been a tough, yet inspiring ride. 

“Since June 2011 I have constantly been working with this album, recording, editing and so forth — day and night. The same goes for my comrades. Never before have we made an album where everybody in the band has been so heavily involved and dedicated as this time around. 

“‘Urd’ is surely the peak of our musical journey so far and we are extremely proud to have made this giant of an album! It’s massive, it’s emotional, it’s fast, it’s slow, it’s epic, and it’s progressive… all the ingredients that we have crafted our musical world on! And not to mention the ‘golden threesome’ on vocals (Vintersorg, Mr. Vortex and Lazare) really shines on this album… Do I need to say more?!”

The BORKNAGAR 2012 line up is:

Øystein G. Brun (Cronian, ex-Molested) – Clean and Electric Guitar
Vintersorg (VINTERSORG, FISSION) – Grim Vocals, Clean Vocals and Choirs
Lars A. Nedland (SOLEFALD, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST) – Keyboards, Clean Vocals, Choirs
Jens F. Ryland (ICS VORTEX) – Lead Guitar
ICS Vortex (ex-DIMNMU BORGIR, ARCTURUS, ICS VORTEX) – Bass, Clean Vocals and Choirs

Drums and percussion on “Urd” were performed by David Kinkade (SOULFLY, ex-MALEVOLENT CREATION).
