Doro Pesch of Warlock reveals the album artwork as well as the track list for her upcoming live masterpiece ’Triumph And Agony Live‘, which will be released on September 24, 2021. The artwork centres on Geoffrey Gillespie's famous original drawing of the "Warlock" embracing the blonde rock star.
"The cover and the whole artwork including booklet and inlay are a combination of live shots and the amazing iconic Warlock paintings of my favourite artist, Geoffrey Gillespie, who did all the classic Doro / Warlock artworks. It worked out great. I am so happy with it.“
Doro will celebrate the 35th anniversary of her hit album ’Triumph And Agony‘ with the release of the spectacular live album ’Triumph And Agony Live‘. The highly anticipated work will be released in many different configurations on CD, vinyl, cassette, Blu-ray as well as in an exclusive, strictly limited fan box! Recorded in front of a mega-crowd at the famous Sweden Rock Festival, Doro and her band delivered a show for the ages.
"It has always been my dream to play the complete ’Triumph And Agony‘ album live. The order of the tracks is different from the original album, but we're playing all ten songs in new, powerful versions."
The audience thanked them frantically. "It was fantastic," Doro explains. "There was a killer atmosphere!" And this was perfectly captured in sound and image. To be heard (and seen) on the great ’Triumph And Agony Live‘ album.
Doro admits that:-
"It's one of my all-time favourite albums. It's got some of our biggest classics and anthems like "All We Are", "Für Immer" or "I Rule The Ruins", plus fan favourites "Metal Tango", "Three Minute Warning" and “Kiss Of Death". Not forgetting the album opener and headbanger "Touch Of Evil". I'm super excited and can't wait to let fans hear and see ’Triumph And Agony‘. And it's so exciting to hear the live versions of the classic songs. They capture even more magic now. When I see the fans at the shows and hear them scream and sing along, I know what I live for."
The track list includes all ten songs from the 1987 album, but in a different order than originally released.
Periphery have announced their first live album, releasing the 10-song Periphery: Live in London (pre-orders: smarturl.it/LIL_it) on Nov. 13.
Guitarist Jake Bowen explains the decision behind this:-
“For years Periphery has wanted to do a live record. We’d always talk about it, what show would we capture? When would we do it? What would we want it to sound like? On November 15, 2019 we figured out the answers to those questions by capturing our entire show in London and we couldn’t be more excited to show it to everyone. London has consistently been one of our favourite places to play and this show was certainly one we’ll never forget, so we present to you our first live album...Periphery: Live in London!”
The varied track list includes music from throughout the D.C.-born band’s discography. Periphery IV: HAIL STAN (https://store.3dotrecordings.com/) arrived in the Spring of 2019, debuting at #1 on Billboard’s Independent Albums, Rock Albums and Hard Rock Album charts, as well as entering the trade magazine’s Top Album Sales and Digital Albums charts at #9. The nine-song release is the follow up to their 2017 GRAMMY® Award nominated Periphery III: Select Difficulty. The 2016 album has tallied 35 million cumulative streams. Periphery band members have graced the covers of Guitar World, Revolver, Modern Drummer, Bass Player and more.

Icelandic Viking Metallers Skálmöld to release new live album '10 Year Anniversary - Live In Reykjavik' on September 25th
Icelandic Viking Metal giants Skálmöld will release their second live album and the first one as solo band 10 Year Anniversary - Live In Reykjavík, on September 25, 2020 via Napalm Records. Three consecutive sold-out shows at the Gamla Bíó in their home town Reykjavík were the adequate setting to celebrate the 10th anniversary together with their devotees. 10 Year Anniversary - Live In Reykjavík transports the mythical atmosphere directly into their fans' homes
With propelling drums and heavy rhythms, underlined by Björgvin Sigurðsson’s unique vocals comes "Niðavellir“, the first single fresh off the new live opus. The single, originally released on their 2016 album Vögguvísur Yggdrasils, leads the listener straight into Myrkheim, the land of the dwarves. "Niðavellir“ became one of Skálmöld’s trademark songs since then and in this live version, the energy coming from stage during the performance is palpable in every corner of Reykjavík's legendary Gamla Bíó.
Skálmöld on the CD / DVD / BLU-RAY:
“In late 2009 we started Skálmöld. Nothing serious. Was just supposed for the pure fun of meeting up once in a while to play some metal music. Fast forward 10 years and we are celebrating the release of 10 Years Of Skálmöld - Live in Reykjavík. Recorded in the heart of Iceland's capital at one of our 3 amazing sold out shows. Here is Skálmöld in its purest form - on stage, feeding on the energy of our beloved fans. We feel really proud and happy to present this to you.
Growing up and slowly beginning to descend into the world of metal music there was one album that really left its mark on my young self: Iron Maiden - Live After Death. At 10 years old, in awe, dreaming that one day I could play in a band, play shows, record it and release for others to enjoy was just that - a dream. But now all these years later my band celebrated 10 years of existence. 5 albums and countless shows all over Europe. We just had to capture this moment. So here it is. 10 Years Of Skálmöld - Live in Reykjavík. Here we are doing what we enjoy the most, playing a sweaty sold out show in front of our most dedicated fans. Well that was truly a night to remember. Skál!”

When you unleash the Belgian Evil Invaders onstage, metal gains a complete new, heady and exciting dimension that is second to none.

October 4th 2019 will see Napalm Records release the band's first live album and DVD ever: Surge of Insanity - Live in Antwerp 2018 is the expected balls-out home town insanity, taped at the Trix Zaal in 2018!

Frontman Joe commented just recently that:-
“On October 4th we will finally release our live album + DVD, 'Surge Of Insanity: Live in Antwerp 2018'! From day one, our goal has always been to distinguish ourselves musically as well as visually in our live performances.”
We're always striving to create new and unique visual aspects to our show. It was massive to play with a full production at the venue where we all used to go to see our favourite bands since we were teenagers. This live album + DVD marks the end of an old and the beginning of a new era for Evil Invaders. We're just getting started...”

The most appreciated Romanian crossover folkcore metal band, Dirty Shirt, have revealed a new extract from their upcoming live album "Dirty Shirt & Ansamblul Transilvania – FolkCore DeTour", which is set to be released on February 23rd.
Watch "Maramu" live with Ansamblul Transilvania on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myOJah24Wik
"FolkCore DeTour" was an unprecedented project for the Romanian and international metal scenes alike because it juxtaposed for the first time on stage a metal band and a Romanian traditional folk orchestra.
The band previously unveiled the track «Ciocarlia», which you can still watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SJZULTFyZI
In March 2018, Dirty Shirt will be back in Europe kicking off an East-European tour across Poland (Kraków, Lodz, Wrocław, Poznan), Czech Republic (Prague)*, Germany (Munchen)*, Slovakia (Bratislava)*, Hungary (Budapest)*
*For these four shows, Dirty Shirt will support the israeli band Orphaned Land on their European tour "Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs Tour 2018”.
Dirty Shirt is a top Romanian crossover folkcore metal band, winner of second place at the international final of Wacken Metal Battle 2014 (Germany) and of several awards at last year's Metalhead and Maximum Rock Awards. The band's unique style derives from mixing the heavy sound of modern rock/metal with the festive ambiance of East-European traditional music, the eclecticism of world music (country, reggae and tribal rhythms), the electro sound of industrial music, the energy of hardcore, and the groove of funk. It's not surprising to find great appreciation for Dirty Shirt albums in hundreds of reviews all over the world, including in well-respected magazines such as Metal Hammer (DE, HU), Rock Hard – (DE, FR, SLK), Metalsucks – USA, Hard Rock Mag – FR, Terrorizer – UK, etc.
