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.

KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD Band - New / Nouvel Album "Lay It On Down" (21.07.2017) - Video "Baby Got Gone" - Tour (France: 22 Juillet)
==> EN CONCERT en France :
Having released his new album, "Inverted Grasp of Balance", last year via Metal Blade Records, Monte Pittman is now launching a performance video for the album track "Obliterated", featuring drummer Richard Christy and bassist Billy Sheehan (both of whom played on the album).
There are great guitarists, great vocalists and great songwriters, but Monte Pittman is one of the elite few who can truly lay claim to all three titles.
With his fourth full-length, "Inverted Grasp of Balance", he has once again raised the stakes, delivering a riveting collection of full force metal that showcases his continuing evolution, undoubtedly expanding his devout - and ravenous - fan base.
The record also features powerhouse drummer Richard Christy of Charred Walls Of The Damned/Iced Earth/Death fame and virtuoso bassist Billy Sheehan, famous for his work with a plethora of talented artists - including David Lee Roth, Mr. Big and, more recently, Winery Dogs.
The skill of all concerned explodes from the speakers!

ZEAL & ARDOR - "Devil Is Fine" Out 24 Feb 2017 - "Devil Is Fine" (Official Video) - TOUR 2017 (France - Paris: 19 Avril 2017)
==> American slave and black metal <==
Son prochain album, « Devil is Fine » - disponible le 24 février prochain sur NVKA/Caroline - aborde les thèmes les plus typiques du black metal - rituels, sacrifices humains, feu et le sang – mais Zeal & Ardor a décidé de pousser ces propos blasphématoires encore un peu plus loin en les conjuguant à des paroles directement inspirées des chants spirituels repris par les esclaves lorsqu’ils travaillaient enchaînés dans les plantations... Du black metal tirant son inspiration des champs de coton des états du sud… qui aurait pu imaginer ça un jour ?
Zeal & Ardor c'est un musicien americano/suisse nommé Manuel Gagneux, qui tire son inspiration d’une approche alternative de l’histoire, résultant directement de l’association entre deux pensées :
01) la religion chrétienne a été imposée aux esclaves américains (tout comme cela avait déjà été fait en Norvège des siècles auparavant)
02) dans les années 90, le black métal s’est répandu partout dans le monde en rébellion face au monothéisme.
Dès lors, que se serait-il passé si les esclaves américains s’étaient rebellés de la même façon ? Quel aurait été le son de ces chants spirituels s’ils avaient été sataniques ?
Avec « Devil is Fine », Zeal & Ardor apporte les premiers éléments de réponse...
« Devil is Fine n’a pas été créé avec l’idée que peu de gens pourraient l’entendre… Il n’y a donc aucun compromis stylistique, je n’ai pas eu à me plier face à certaines demandes... Il s’agit seulement de choses que j’aime personnellement… » ne manque pas de souligner Manuel Gagneux
C'est sans aucun doute cette liberté totale qui lui a permis de créer une oeuvre avant-gardiste dont on n' a pas fini d'entendre parler...
