OVERKILL unveil first digital single “Last Man Standing”
Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth comments, “The time has come, for a first taste, ‘Last Man Standing‘. This cut got the unanimous nod to open The Wings of War, all they way back to the first demos in March, so much so, it was mock titled OPENER up until the recording. Sometimes everyone is on the same page, wtf!. So dig into some old school thrash, with a side order of Jersey made, head-banging.”

Lamb Of God’s MARK MORTON announces album ANESTHETIC and releases first single “THE TRUTH IS DEAD”
Mark Morton, the prolific guitarist of Lamb of God, has announced a new project that sees him further explore his creative drive for writing and collaboration. Joining forces with WPP Records and Spinefarm Records on a worldwide basis, Morton will release a 10-track album under his own name and titled Anesthetic. It arrives on March 1, 2019 but CD and vinyl pre-order and merch bundles are available now at www.markmortonmusic.com.
Listen to the lead track “The Truth Is Dead,” featuring his Lamb of God bandmate Randy Blythe and Arch Enemy vocalist Alissa White-Gluz in the lyric video below:
The full track listing, complete with the list of guest artists is below. The album was made alongside a dream team of highly respected musicians from a multitude of musical worlds; some friends, and some who would never be expected to collaborate with metal genre leaders Lamb of God.
Starting as idea between Jake (leader of heavy rock band Oni and founder of WPP Records), producer Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Trivium, Oni, Gojira) and Morton, the project quickly gathered steam – with Mark at the creative center, Josh Wilbur co-writing, recording, mixing, and producing, and Jake Oni also co-writing and performing.
Morton had been writing some of this debut for years. “This album wasn’t a concerted effort to start something outside Lamb of God,” he explains. “Music is always in my head, and until I write and record it, it’s stuck there. But once I record it, it’s out. It’s a catharsis, more for my own sanity.”
Singers on the album include Chester Bennington, Randy Blythe, Jacoby Shaddix, Myles Kennedy, Alissa White-Gluz, Mark Lanegan, Chuck Billy, Jake Oni, Josh Todd, Mark Morales and Naeemah Maddox. Musically, Morton performs all guitars, with Roy Mayorga, David Ellefson, Ray Luzier, Paulo Gregoletto and Alex Bent, Mike Inez, Jean-Paul Gaster, Steve Gorman and Marc Paul rounding out the band.

ASH OF ASHES With New Music Video For “Down The White Waters”
At the end of the year of the album release, ASH OF ASHES have created a very special treat for their fans: A music video for the title song “Down The White Waters”, which in less than three months could reach the absolutely remarkable number of 90.000 Spotify plays for a newcomer! The epic Metal song has thus received the appropriate and mood-appropriate images, and was produced by the band themselves with the help of friends. The recordings for the video were made in Norway as well as in the native Sauerland. It is about departure and the journey into the unknown. For ASH OF ASHES, the journey has just begun …
Only every few years appears in the spiritual-natural, epic-pagan area of the upscale Heavy Metal, a very special album classic, which seeks on a wide, artistic area of its kind. And “Down The White Waters”, the debut longplayer of ASH OF ASHES, joins this exquisite guild quite clearly and sublime. The always accessible, often highly catchy and even clearly hit-capable compositions wander with healthy pride on melancholy, partly sad levels. But the musical soul of the band is free of bitterness and always focused on timeless aesthetics.
