Russian melodic death metallers Shturm have released a new music video for the track “Eagles Above Tibet“, taken from their new album Karmaruna, released on April 18th via Darknagar Records. You can now watch the video above.
The band commented: “The video’s full of symbols and ideas, so its sense may be not very clear for you – we’ll be happy to answer your questions! The video’s and song’s ideas are different at first sight. The song itself tells us about how compassionate may be human’s heart even after great ties of exile, wars and humiliation. It also tells us about how important is freedom for everyone of us all! The video consists of few scenes in which the wise Buddhist parables are shown. We suppose their sence may be quite urgent for many people today, so the video may appear interesting for you!”

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada metallers 3 INCHES OF BLOOD will take part in an in-store signing session on June 12 at 6:00 p.m. at SoundCheck Hollywood in Hollywood, California. More information is available on the flyer below.
3 INCHES OF BLOOD‘s new album, “Long Live Heavy Metal“, was released on March 27 via Century Media Records.
For “Long Live Heavy Metal“, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD reunited with producer and engineer Terry “Sho” Murray (CITY OF FIRE, EXHIBITIONISTS), who worked with the band on their seven-inch single, “Anthems For The Victorious“.
3 INCHES OF BLOOD teamed up with Kim Thiessen to perfect their artistic vision for the album, which was released as a digipack and when opened, lays out similar to that of a book.
3 INCHES OF BLOOD recently recruited Byron Stroud (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, FEAR FACTORY) as its new bassist.
TRIVIUM guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy, guitarist Corey Beaulieu and bassist Paolo Gregoletto stopped by the studios of New Rock 93.3 The Planet, a radio station serving parts of both North and South Carolina, to perform acoustic versions of their songs “Built To Fall” and “Black“. Check out the footage above.
TRIVIUM‘s latest album, “In Waves“, sold 22,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 13 on The Billboard 200 chart — the highest U.S. chart entry of the band’s career. The group’s previous CD, “Shogun“, opened with just under 24,000 units back in October 2008 to debut at No. 23. The effort followed up “The Crusade“, which registered a first-week tally of 31,000 copies in October 2006 to enter the chart at No. 25.
Rustyn Rose of Metalholic.com recently conducted an interview with guitarist Chris Green of U.K. metallers FURYON. You can now listen to the chat above.
FURYON‘s debut album, “Gravitas“, was released on March 23 in Europe and March 27 in North America via Frontiers Records.
FURYON is a new band from the U.K. who like nothing more than to challenge expectations. Raised on a diet of heavy metal, prog, and classic rock, FURYON mix all these components for a truly unique and contemporary sound. Delivering huge rock-radio-friendly songs, with technically-challenging-yet-infectiously-catchy musicianship, they are dedicated to one sole purpose: making hard-hitting songs that will stand the test of time.
“Our music is good songs with touches of intelligence,” says singer Matt Mitchell, “There are a many different moods that come out from this album and all the songs have meaning and substance. Heavy and melodic! That is what FURYON and this album, ‘Gravitas‘, is about.”
What separates FURYON from the crowd is the sheer quality of their musicianship. Boasting two truly world-class guitarists in the form of Chris Green and Pat “The Shred” Heath, FURYON have few peers when it comes to the quality of their iconic riffs and jaw-dropping solos. Backing them up is one of the tightest rhythm sections the rock world has to offer, with the awesome combination of Lee Farmery and Alex “Nickel” Bowen. Leading from the front is the outstanding vocal versatility of Matt Mitchell, whose emotion drenched voice effortlessly moves between melodic and crunchingly heavy.
