Jesse Leach of longtime Killswitch Engage fame has unveiled a new alter ego. Named AliKeN, the project is billed as having darker, more demonic melodic structures than we might expect from Killswitch’s normal material. Here’s part of what Leach, sorry…AliKeN, had to say:

So here I am finally putting something out as a “solo” artist. After many years of debate and quite frankly a mix of indecision and insecurity I went and just did it! I am bearing my soul a bit on this one, but as you will see and hear it’s the darker parts of my soul. This song inspired a video that in turn inspired the song lyrics and it all just came out of me.

I was having an off day I woke up out of some dark and demonic dreams (as I am prone to have occasionally all my life, but thats another story altogether) and I had this melody in my head. I figured out the melody on my keyboard and the song just started to take a life of it’s own. I went for a long walk in the rain and shot some footage (The footage was taken in the Bronx, NY – yeah really The Bronx has wooded parts ha ha) 

This song is only a portion of what I plan to do with my alter ego “AliKeN” as well as just putting music and videos out for the sheer expression and joy of making art in many forms. So I will not be bound by genre or stylistic restrictions. Love it hate it, this is the first step into my solo music.

Curious to see what this is all about? Check out the track “In The Shadows” and its corresponding video below.

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.
