Trafalgar Releasing is excited to announce the forthcoming release of Metallica and San Francisco Symphony: S&M² in cinemas worldwide this October 9. Metallica and San Francisco Symphony reunite to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their original S&M (Symphony & Metallica) show with S&M², filmed at San Francisco’s new Chase Center on 6th and 8th September.
The original S&M concerts were performed by Metallica and San Francisco Symphony and conducted by the late Michael Kamen in spring of 1999 at the Berkeley Community Theatre. 2019’s S&M² concert will feature the first live performances of these arrangements in 20 years, plus the first-ever Metallica and San Francisco Symphony renditions of songs written and released since the original concert, with new orchestral charts by Bruce Coughlin.
Legendary conductor Michael Tilson Thomas completes the first week of his final season as San Francisco Symphony Music Director with a special appearance, conducting a portion of the show.
Metallica’s first collaboration with San Francisco Symphony was documented by the Grammy-winning live album S&M.

Brazil's modern groove thrashers Killery have just released a new video for the track "Exuding Hate", which is taken off from their debut album "Ready For Apocalypse".
The idea behind "Exuding Hate" is to present the viewer with a story unfolding in the background. This is a track that talks about repression, war and civil strife and how the violence used by authorities generates hate. Killery sought in Pitter Cutrim's nuances and vocal range the representation for this feeling, which can be very complex to represent lyrically.

Killery is currently part of VAULT LAB Recordings roster.
When you unleash the Belgian Evil Invaders onstage, metal gains a complete new, heady and exciting dimension that is second to none. With their trademark sound nestled in between death, thrash, progressive touches and traditional heavy metal, and the four-piece may sound notoriously tech-loving yet astoundingly raw on record, Evil Invaders is an incredible high-octane live phenomenon in both sound and vision. 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! Close to its official release, Evil Invaders are now Raising Hell with the premiere of another stunning clip of their upcoming live record; get the band's high-energy live show right into your living room and watch the video to Raising Hell HERE!
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...”
Surge of Insanity - Live in Antwerp 2018 will be coming out October 4th as a 6 Page CD Digipak and DVD, the 2LP Gatefold will also include the full DVD. Pre-sales are available via the Napalm Records online store at THIS LOCATION!

Chile's premier thrash band Ripper and Toilet Ov Hell have joined forces to premiere the band's newest EP, Sensory Stagnation. The stream comes just days ahead of the EP's official release next week on Unspeakable Axe Records.
Check out Sensory Stagnation now at this location.
Sensory Stagnation is coming September 30th on CD, cassette and digital platforms from Unspeakable Axe Records, with a vinyl release to follow from Dark Descent Records. Pre-orders are available at unspeakableaxerecords.bandcamp.com/album/sensory-stagnation
The high-speed thrashing and intricate riffs are still there, as well as the philosophical lyrics and incomprehensibly good bass work. But the band has leaned a little further into their progressive influences, with a more pronounced presence of Atheist riding shotgun with their usual Teutonic and South American thrash forerunners. The result is an outing that feels rich despite a run time of roughly 20 minutes, loaded with some of the band's best playing and most fascinating ideas to date.

Venus Torment - Guitar /Vocals
Pablo Cortés - Bass
Daniel Poblete - Guitars
Texas thrashers Archangel A.D. have just released their new single "Eventide" via Indy Metal Vault. The song is also available via Bandcamp.
Take a listen to the song here: https://www.indymetalvault.com/2019/09/23/single-premiere-archangel-a-d-eventide/
Listen to the band's critically acclaimed previous release "Warband" here:-https://archangelad.bandcamp.com/album/warband
Raw, untamed, powerful, and precise are the best ways to describe Archangel A.D., a youthful band that channels the classic aggression and songwriting of the Big 4 with a modern sensibility. Formed in 2015, the band is currently touring across Texas and looking forward to hitting the national stage; they have performed with national/international and Texas-based metal acts including Adrenaline Mob, Bobaflex, EYEHATEGOD, Methedras, Paralysis, Cerebral Desecration, Confused, Panteon, Overt Enemy, Pig Weed, Violent Vendetta, Ratchet Dolls and dozens of local bands, playing their hearts out and earning new fans at every show.
Following several demos, EPs, and splits, Archangel A.D. is now preparing to release their new single Eventide on September 23rd. If Eventide's ferocious riffage doesn't take these young thrashers to heavenly heights, it should at least get them out of Texas.
Archangel A.D. is:

Chile's premier thrash band Ripper have launched the exclusive premiere of the title track from their forthcoming new EP, Sensory Stagnation. The stream is online now at No Clean Singing, who had this to say about the track:
“It keeps things fierce and fast. Imagine early Kreator being covered by Watchtower and you might be honing in on the Ripper sound. And while the promo material name-checks Atheist, it is just as appropriate to mention Sadus, who also constructed technical Death Thrash, and at least on Swallowed in Black, they stood with the best of them. And while Sadus had Steve Digorgio on bass, Ripper has its own bass virtuoso in the form of Pablo Cortés, whose awe-inspiring lines are a constant throughout this release.”

Now the quartet have released their music video for the track 'Outrage', taken off the album.

Frontman Rueban says:-
"The album is loosely based around the biblical character; Samson. Samson was depicted as the epitome of strength in the bible. Though, we might not be like Samson, we, as individuals have unique strengths that we can use. No matter who you are, what age group you belong, or what the status of your life may be, you have a gift that you can use. The pain only gets stronger when we refuse to learn a lesson. If there’s something ‘negative’ happening in your life right now, chances are that you need to learn to accept people the way they are. The album music shows you how to gather yourself and be stronger than you have ever been, based on everyday life experiences."
