After some time in the studio Ammotrack have gathered their thoughts about the current situation in the world and transformed them into a new single and video❗️
"’Fucked up Society’, deals with the feeling of being trapped in a world out of balance. The pandemic, climate crisis and current power games are everybody’s new-born reality. For us, this is a way to express the frustration of not being able to live our lives like we used to, but at the same time never giving up hope that life will get better. This strong powerful melody, rapid beats and meaningful dark lyrics, is the perfect “fuck you” to the world we live in today!" //Ammotrack
"New hometown visual just went live on our youtube. this video is a montage of some of the best nights of our lives. there was a really strange sense of irony that came with putting a new visual together for this song — a deep contrast between who we were when it was written VS who we are now.
we miss hanging with you guys. we miss the moshpits and feedback and spilled beer and yelling in each others ears because the house music is way too loud"
Lifelong best friends since the age of 4, Luke Gruntz (guitar/vocals) and Ian Fraser (drums) are cleopatrick. And while they are from (and still based) in the tiny town of Cobourg, Ontario, their sound is anything but small.
A quick listen to their single “hometown” reveals devastating riffs and hip-hop inspired grooves. But closer inspection exposes the core of their mission: to restore the outspoken provocation of rock & roll through raw, abrasive honesty.
And the craziest part? It's working.
Today they share a new video for their single “hometown” which touches on what it's like to grow up in a small town feeling like you don’t quite fit in. The clip, put together by the band, is a love letter to our pre-Covid lives of going to a show and getting into the pit. “This video is a montage of some of the best nights of our lives. There was a really strange sense of irony that came with putting this new visual together. There's an incredible contrast between who we were when this song was written vs who we are now -- and it's all thanks to this song,” Gruntz explains.
==>Today, the band also announces their first official vinyl release: a limited edition 7” single of “hometown” with cover art hand-stamped by the band. The vinyl single will be released on November 20th, and is available for pre-order now at the band’s newly-launched webstore.
All of cleopatrick’s success has developed from their parents' basements in a small town you've never heard of. Yet while their homebase may be a small dot on the map, their community is large. Along with two other like-minded-artists (Zig Mentality and Ready The Prince), the band formed the loose DIY collective “New Rock Mafia” as a means to offer support to one another. Together the group provides location based info, curated content and organizes secret events / shows within the community, all for members only. It has been instrumental in helping the band get the word out while keeping a familial feel and a safe space for fans.
Fuck whatever you think rock is, because cleopatrick is about to change it all.

BARONESS share a new video for the song “Tourniquet” (from "Gold & Grey" album). Dubbed “Tourniquet (Socially Distant)” the footage features the four band members playing the six-and-a-half minute song at their respective homes, showcasing the band’s ability to both socially isolate and come together to share the message of unity amidst the COVID-19 crisis.
The band issued a collective comment: “Hey everyone! Here’s an as-live-as-possible performance of ‘Tourniquet’ that we made over the course of a couple days during this period of isolation. We have all maintained a rigid policy of social-distancing since becoming aware of this pandemic; which has unfortunately deprived us of our much preferred means of playing music. Throughout this crisis, the overall safety and responsibility of our global human community far outweighs the individual value of any show, festival or tour. We’re refocusing and redoubling our energy to adapt to this situation as it unfolds. As difficult as it seems to navigate the effects of this virus, the isolation has not stripped us of our passion for Baroness’ music. Playing music so far from our bandmates will never be particularly natural. However, the experience of making this video through emails, texts and phone calls has been a powerful reminder of how inspiring and invigorating music can be in times of stress, struggle and confusion. We hope you enjoy this performance. It isn’t meant to highlight musical perfection or precision. Personally, it serves as a reminder that, no matter what situation we face, we are still able to enjoy friendship, family and community through something as simple as a song. Isolated but never alone… Baroness.”
The video closes with a message to fans: “Be safe. Be good to each other. Act with personal and civic responsibility. We’ll see you again soon.”

LIZZY BORDEN : New Track "The Scar Across My Heart" From First Album in 11 Years "My Midnight Things" (Release:15/06/2018)
==> June 15th will see the release of "My Midnight Things" via Metal Blade Records, which can be pre-ordered at metalblade.com/lizzyborden
Lizzy Borden comments: "With 'The Scar Across My Heart,' I wanted to explore those kinds of relationships that tattoo your soul. You're forever linked to this person, even though it can never be for one reason or another. 'We bury all our yesterdays and try and drink these scars away' - I'm talking about a no-hope situation, a never-meant-to-be situation, but I'm still singing 'We're gonna make it now.' I'm always looking for that human reaction no matter how delusional or unrealistic."

SABATON "Primo Victoria": Official Video from SABATON / World Of Tanks (a new spin on the iconic song / Nouvelle donne :)
SABATON News/ Vidéo " Primo Victoria"
The band’s love of history, which blasts through in their music, reviving dramatic, historical events made them a perfect match for the historical tank warfare game developed by Wargaming. Both communities have a love of history and are proud that their players are bursting with musical creativity and passion.
SABATON collaborated with World of Tanks to put a new spin on the band’s awesome song 'Primo Victoria'. The tune is an iconic song from the studio album released in 2005, which is loved by the fans all over the world.
When Wargaming discovered that SABATON were players of the game, they couldn’t wait to collaborate with the band and ultimately created a music video that encapsulates World of Tanks’ drive and style.
Directed by famous German music video and commercial director Zoran Bihac, the creative genius behind videos including 'Mein Herz Brennt' (RAMMSTEIN), 'Eat you Alive' (EMIGRATE), and 'Praise Abort' (LINDEMANN), the video features the song 'Primo Victoria' and focuses on all the emotions felt during a heroic tank battle.
“Understanding the setting of World of Tanks, I can easily say that this game is about history and its importance, but to be honest: also about fun,” said Zoran Bihac, on the new music video. “It awakens the inner-child in you; it’s how I feel about my work, and it resonates with SABATON’s style. I wanted to keep the feeling of the game, and especially of their trailers, which look like real, historically accurate movies. This had to be combined with the song and our performance. To create a story, I came up with the setting of a normal performance video, where the tanks come alive, and start to hunt and shoot each other.”
A number of the shots for the tanks were filmed in Arsenalen Tank Museum, Strängnäs, Sweden. The action scenes were shot on a military base in Belarus, where the band got a totally new experience of riding in actual WW2 tanks. The wall destruction scene was shot on the first take with a Panzer III actually crashing through the wall, with Pär Sundström on board.
“Working closely with talented musicians like SABATON was an awesome experience for us,” said Maxim Chuvalov, World of Tanks marketing director. “One of the challenges we faced was that the band was constantly on tour, preforming shows all over the world almost every day. We had to find a slot in their tight schedule to bring the idea to life. Thankfully, the guys were very energetic and flexible, as well as really hardworking, so the project took shape. We’re really proud to have such talented musicians in our community and super excited to present the Tank Metal video to our fans.”
Fans can expect more Tank Metal coming to World of Tanks. On August 17th, the first ever music tank, the Strv 81 Primo Victoria, will be available in the game with some cool camo and unique features like a SABATON crew with the captain’s VO, Band of Brothers perk, and more.

MOTÖRHEAD «Under Cöver» - Toutes Les Reprises/Covers Compilation- 01 Sept 2017 -Official "God Save The Queen"/ "Heroes"
==> Déjà dispo en précommande:
« Under Cöver »
==> Sortie le 1er Septembre 2017
CD digipak, vinyle, coffret collector & digital
(distribution Warner Music)
Grâce à « Under Cöver », la plupart des reprises enregistrées par Motörhead tout au long de sa prolifique carrière sont enfin réunies sur un seul et même disque ! Certaines sont connues, d’autres beaucoup moins, alors que leur version cosmique du « Heroes » de David Bowie était restée inédite jusqu’à ce jour…
Motörhead qui reprend Bowie, un moment forcément historique !
Plus qu’une simple compilation, « Under Cöver » est un recueil de morceaux particulièrement funs que Lemmy & co aimaient offrir leurs fans en hommage à leurs potes ou leurs pairs…
ONE THING Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee liked to do over their years together in Motörhead, was grab a favourite song by another artist and give it a good old fashioned ‘Motörheading’. To run them through the Motörizer if you will. To rock them, roll them and even give them an extra twist and edge.
In celebration of some of those finest moments, the band will release "Under Cöver", a collection of some of their best covers, and a collection which will include the previously unreleased version of David Bowie’s timeless classic “Heroes”. Recorded during the Bad Magic sessions in 2015 by Cameron Webb, and was one of the last songs the band recorded together.
“It’s such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming out of it from us, and so it proved to be,” says Phil Campbell, “and Lemmy ended up loving our version.”
“He was very, very proud of it,” says Mikkey Dee, “not only because it turned out so well but because it was fun! Which is what projects like this should be – fun!”
To that ethic, the rest of the album contains loud and proud, raucous and raging Rock ‘N’ Roll takes on the likes of “God Save The Queen” (Sex Pistols), “Cat Scratch Fever” (Ted Nugent), “Rockaway Beach,” (The Ramones), Breaking The Law” (Judas Priest) and “Whiplash” (Metallica) which earned the band a Grammy in 2005 for Best Metal Performance.
“We were happy with them at the time and we’re happy with them now!” affirms Campbell, whilst Dee says, “We should remember that it’s about having some fun with songs that we all loved.”
So there you are. If that doesn’t have you scrambling for your music delivery device, then check your pulse pronto.
Or just start scrambling for a copy of Under Cöver immediately. You won’t be sorry.
