Glenn Danzig talks about Samhain reunion, next Danzig album

Posted by ChrisDude on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 6:18 PM (PST)

In a recent interview, Glenn Danzig talked about the reunion of Samhain, the band he was involved in after the Misfits‘ initial breakup in 1983, and offered an update on the next Danzig album, which will be the band’s first since 2010′s Death Red Sabaoth. Asked what made him bring Samhain back together to celebrate the the 30th anniversary of their debut album Initium, Glenn replied:

“We got an offer from the people at Riot Fest for a Samhain show. It just came out of the blue. They were doing their ten-year anniversary and they were doing the ten essential albums and they wanted Samhain to be a part of it with Slayer and Jane’s Addiction. A lot of bands. Just the fact that they would include the Samhain ‘Initium’ record as one of ten essential records, that’s pretty cool. So I talked to Steve in London and they were like, “Yeah let’s do it.” So we’re going to perform the whole ‘Initium’ record front-to-back. I think that’s the first time we’ve ever done it.”

On the long-awaited new Danzig record, Glenn stated, “I’m working on that right now. It seems like time slips out of your hands. You wake up and 2-3 years have passed. Danzig did a lot of touring on this last record, I think more touring than I’ve ever done before. It was spaced out over X amount of years but I think it’s time to sit back a little after these shows in the fall and try and get everything I’ve been doing out.”

The guy who was arrested for posting lyrics by a metal band on Facebook speaks

Posted by ChrisDude on Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at 6:33 PM (PST)

Nearly a week ago, we reported that an Exodus fan named James Evans was arrested for posting the lyrics to “Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer)“ on his Facebook page. About the incident, Evans, who was charged with a Class C felony for “terrorist threatenings” and faced the possibility of between five and ten years in prison, tells the press:

“I couldn’t believe it got that out of hand. At the same time it’s worrisome because I have a family to take care of. I have a three-month-old son.”

Exodus will release their new album Blood In, Blood Out on October 14th via Nuclear Blast, which is the band’s first with vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza since 2004′s Tempo of the Damned. To support the album, the band will tour with Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies this fall.

Man arrested for posting lyrics of a metal band on Facebook

Posted by ChrisDude on Saturday, September 6, 2014 at 11:34 AM (PST)

We don’t often cover thrash metal bands on Dying Scene, but an Exodus fan named James Evans was arrested for posting the lyrics to “Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer)” on his Facebook page, and has been charged with making terroristic threats for posting the words to that song, which describe a school shooting to Facebook. About the incident, Exodus wrote:

“The idea that an individual in this great country of ours could be arrested for simply posting lyrics to a song is something I never believed could happen in a free society.

The song was written as a view through the eyes of a madman and in no way endorses that kind of fucked up behavior. It was the Virginia Tech massacre perpetrated by Seung-Hui Cho that was the subject and inspiration.”

Exodus will release their new album Blood In, Blood Out on October 14th via Nuclear Blast, which is the band’s first with vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza since 2004′s Tempo of the Damned. To support the album, the band will tour with Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies this fall.

Atreyu release “So Others May Live” for free download

Posted by Kaylee McNeil on Friday, September 5, 2014 at 4:28 PM (PST)

It’s been more than three years since hardcore band Atreyu went on hiatus, but the group has recently reunited and they have released a free download of their latest track, “So Others May Live”, which you can snag here. This is the first music the band has released since they broke apart in 2011.

On the new (and highly political) track, vocalist Alex Varkatzas commented:

The people who fight and die for us often come from a certain socio-economic background – the working class. The people making these decisions to send our nation’s children to war come from positions of privilege and wealth; their kids aren’t the ones getting deployed and they aren’t risking their lives every day at work. It’s the politicians and the rich of this country waging war to keep the majority pre-occupied, so they can make money and advance their bullshit political agendas.

It’s by far the most challenging record that we have made, but it’s an honest album and I think that you will feel that it is faithful to the legacy of At the Gates. We have, through the process of creating it, been true to ourselves and our art…We are very happy to have managed to produce an album that we feel is truly ‘us.’ Something we can all stand behind one hundred percent.

“Yeah, we’re getting together next year. We’re going to do an album and do some touring. We’ve done this three-piece enough to where we want to do something different. That’s going to happen probably somewhere close to the beginning of the year. He has that band Down that does okay.”
