European riff powerhouse Heavy Psych Sounds have added one more gem to their brilliant roster, with the signing of German stoner / psych rock craftsmen Mother Engine for their third album to be released this fall. Stay tuned for more tunes!
Mother Engine plays instrumental rock music influenced by stoner and post-rock as well as the trippy psychedelic rock of the 60s and 70s, and indigenous German krautrock. It's no real surprise that the journey of that spaceship actually began on the stage of a big German stoner rock festival in the year 2013. What we talk about is a spirit of DIY, uncompromising endurance, and the strong will to play every single stage. After two records ("Muttermaschine" in 2013 and '"Absturz" in 2015) and appearances at some of the most important stoner festivals like Stoned from the Underground, Freak Valley Festival, Sonic Blast Moledo, Into the Void or Rotormania, it seems like they got their landing permission on the European stages for heavy psychedelic music.
In fall 2017, Mother Engine will release their third studio album "Hangar" and embark on a 6-week long tour through Europe to present their new material.
Mother Engine are:-
Chris Trautenbach (guitar)
Cornelius Grünert (drums)
Christian Dressel (bass)

Four musicians from four different countries with four entirely different biographies, yet all stemming from the world of Rock, now united in one band: Exit Eden
The all-female four piece ensemble unites all attributes ascribed to the new millennium: cosmopolitan, self-confident-independent and ready to do their very own thing! Despite their diversity, the four singers Amanda Somerville, Clémentine Delauney, Marina La Torraca and Anna Brunner blend together personally as superbly as they do vocally with their very diverse vocal tones and techniques that go from opera style to raspy rock! This constellation created extraordinary and powerful ideas and finally became their unique plan to raise Exit Eden’s very own edge: to show the world that almost every classic song can be transformed into a solid metal-rock song.
Exit Eden’s debut "Rhapsodies in Black”, which will be released on August 4 via Napalm Records (worldwide excluding Germany / Switzerland / Austria via Starwatch), is home to a colourful mix of international super hits from Rihanna to Madonna, from Depeche Mode to Adele, and many more! Still and all, it’s miles away from being just a cover album. A first video will present a grand entrance very soon! Stay tuned for more updates on Exit Eden
Who the musicians are:
Amanda is a rock-solid authority of the music scene: both as a solo artist and sharing success and the stage with bands like Avantasia, Epica and Kamelot. Though her US-American roots are based in Pop & Rock, she fell in love with the Metal scene and made it her home. She has toured with Alice Cooper, Ian Gillan and many more legends with her commanding voice and fronts the projects Trillium and Kiske Somerville (with Helloween icon Michael Kiske). All of this, combined with her wide range of experience, grants her a unique edge and a permanent address in the Metal world.
A natural talent, Anna began singing at a very young age. As a daughter of a German father and an American mother, she grew up bilingual and founded her first Rock band as a teenager. Due to a music study that lead her through different parts of the world, she garnered a multitude of experience and it became crystal clear to her: music has to rock – and vocals need to be emotional – just like a passionate scream.
Marina La Torraca:
Hailing from Brazil, Marina was born with rhythm in her blood. As the auspicious frontwoman of several Metal bands since the age of 15, her path led her to Europe, where she got to perform with Avantasia and to found her up-and-coming band, Phantom Elite. Since having studied musical theatre in New York, the versatile singer and actress can also be seen internationally in musical productions, including the upcoming German tour of the Broadway-Hit, RENT. For her, being close to the crowd is what counts – no problem for her and her natural convincing character.
Clémentine was born near Paris 30 years ago. She has been a multi talent since her childhood days – no matter if she was dancing, playing the piano or singing – she enchanted her audience. At the age of 16, she joined her first Metal band, she is currently fronting Symphonic Metal outfit Visions Of Atlantis and also worked with Serenity and Melted Space. Another one of her career highlights is her participation on Kai Hansen’s (Helloween, Gamma Ray) first solo album, released in 2016. Thus, Clémentine has carved her way into being one of the great performers of the scene.
German melodic thrashers Odium will release "As The World Turns Black" on July 14th via Black Sunset / MDD! The album was recorded and produced at the Gernhart Studio in Troisdorf under the direction of Martin Buchwalter (Tankard, SuidAkrA, a.o.).
Björn Goosses of Killustration (Sodom, Six Feet Under, Death Angel) is responsible for the cover artwork. "As The World Turns Black" will contain nine songs and will be the tenth release from the Frankfurt maniacs, which celebrate their 25th anniversary next year.
Upcoming live shows
19. August - Hasselroth, Rock in Schröth Open Air
04. November - Nijmegen (NL), Rockcafe Backstage
It's their jubilee year! 35 years of Tankard!
And a suitable soundtrack can’t be neglected for the occasion. The band's 17th studio album entitled ‘One Foot In The Grave’ will be released on June 2nd, 2017 via Nuclear Blast.
But one week before its release, the iconic Frankfurt-based thrashers will celebrate another remarkable milestone in their career; all of Frankfurt are currently looking forward to the German cup final against Borussia Dortmund at Berlin's Olympic Stadium on May 27th. 30,000 Eintracht Frankfurt fans will be there following their team, and everyone able to watch the match will see Tankard's performance of the club anthem 'Schwarz-weiß wie Schnee' about 30 minutes before kick-off, in front of the Frankfurt stands!
The band has launched an official trailer for this special event over on YouTube here.
The club anthem 'Schwarz-weiß wie Schnee' was recorded and released on a Tankard EP in 2006; the band already had the chance to perform the song in the stadium of the German cup final against Bayern Munich that same year. Since that day, the track can be heard before every Eintracht Frankfurt home game. A re-release of the previously mentioned sold-out EP is tentatively scheduled for autumn 2017.
The German pirate metal horde The Privateer, have announced their upcoming third album "The Goldsteen Lay". The album will be released on July 28, 2017 via NoiseArt Records.
The band states:
"Ahoy bloody landlubbers! Finally the work of the last few years will pay off. Our new album "The Goldsteen Lay" will be released on 28 July 2017 under the flag of NoiseArt Records!You can expect an outstanding concept-album with eleven chapters full of madness, eternal life and treasures which won’t let any privateer sleep peacefully ever again! The next weeks we will publish further details about the album!"
Recorded in the safe harbours of the Iguana Studios in March-Burchheim under the control of experienced captain Christoph Brandes who also kicked the gangway of mix & mastering, "The Goldsteen Lay" is an overwhelming adventure in terms of sound engineering as well.
The Privateer travel the seven seas since 2007 and they are looking back onto two successful albums and dozens of landing parties in their homeland as well as foreign and exotic countries. Their Heavy Folk Metal dispersed dust right from their first prey on, and they've found accommodation with the lubbers of NoiseArt Records just in time for their third album. NoiseArt can't get enough from "The Goldsteen Lay" and will on their part make sure that this adventure will be available worldwide. We have set sails already... will you join us on this epic and adventurous journey?
German death metallers Ingurgitating Oblivion have released their third full-length, "Vision Wallows in Symphonies of Light", on April 21st via Willowtip Records.
Abundant in unexpected turns and shifts in direction that explore elements that are obscure, brutal and complex, as well as progressive and genre defying, "Vision Wallows In Symphonies Of Light" is the embodiment of an auditory labyrinth. With the recruitment of Lille Gruber from Defeated Sanity on drums, Ingurgitating Oblivion have brought forth thought provoking audio works that are drenched in soul crushing dissonance, and merged with a variety of atypical elements such as pianos, vibraphones, and jazz guitars.
