The rise of Tragedy has been swift and incident filled. Their heavy metal meets the Bee Gees meets disco has been welcomed into the hearts and minds of people across the globe and now the band are back with the soon to be global smash album – ‘The Joy of Sex’.
The album is set for a European release on February 24th, just as the band hit the UK for another extensive run around the country.
‘The Joy of Sex’ features eleven new Tragedy hits – including ‘Little Red Corvette’ (Prince), ‘Borderline’ (Madonna), ‘Do You Think I’m Sexy’ (Rod Stewart), ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ (Rick Astley) and their stunning re-make of the disco floor filling classic – ‘Stayin’ Alive’!
Much like their acclaimed re-working of the ‘Grease’ classic ‘You’re the One That I Want’, Tragedy have taken the Bee Gees disco classic and given it a 2017 update!!
The band recently finished the video for ‘Stayin’ Alive’ in New York with special guest star Dave Hill (acclaimed U.S. comedian) and will be launching the video clip very soon! Their video for reworked ‘Grease’ classic ‘You’re the One That I Want’ took the U.S. by storm with 150,000 in its first week on YouTube!

Naturally, the only cure for this fever was to record a cover track! Tengger Cavalry just dropped a Mongolian metal-style cover of the Pokémon Gym Battle Theme, which you can hear now via Metal Injection.

Danish metal phenomenon Myrkur has just shared a new track from her forthcoming acoustic / live EP Mausoleum (out this August 19). "Song To Hall Up High," originally by Bathory, has been re-worked and wholly transformed by MYRKUR and has premiered at Metal Hammer, who called the rendition "a gauntlet thrown down to the foes, but one wrapped in finest gossamer, and more true to the transcendent, spirit-channelling nature of black metal than any number of self-appointed grimness-wardens bashing away at their keyboards."
Hear Myrkur's take on "Song To Hall Up High" now at this location.
On the one-year anniversary of her critically-acclaimed, masterful debut full-length, M, Danish black metal artist Myrkur unveils a captivating live recording from the historic Emanuel Vigeland Mausoleum in Oslo, Norway. Aptly titled Mausoleum, the album features beautifully dramatic & stripped-down acoustic reinventions of seven songs from M plus one brand new song and a Bathory cover; all accompanied by the Norwegian Girls Choir and Håvard (ex-Ulver) on guitar. Captured in a cold, dimly-lit tomb covered in morbid frescos that depict the circle of human life from conception til death, Mausoleum is an incredible showcase of Myrkur's sublime yet haunting voice in a truly chilling, unrivalled atmosphere.
Mausoleum is due out this August 19 on CD / LP / Digital via Relapse. Physical pre-orders are available at this location, and digital versions can be pre-ordered via Myrkur's Bandcamp here.
