DARK HORSE ANNOUNCES THE ART OF SATOSHI KON

This August, Dark Horse remembers an animation legend and his works with The Art of Satoshi Kon.

A director who blazed a brilliant animation career before his tragic passing in 2010, Kon is immortalized in this special hardcover volume that covers the whole of his incredible career. Encompassing everything from illustrations for his movies Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers, Millennium Actress, and Paprika and his television series Paranoia Agent, to his manga, commercial art, and more, The Art of Satoshi Kon is an oversized, 136-page tribute to a master of anime filmmaking.

Including a special appreciation from Darren Aronofsky, The Art of Satoshi Kon celebrates a lifetime of Kon’s work, including several little-known and incomplete projects.


DARK HORSE AND NAUGHTY DOG JOIN FORCES FOR THE ART OF THE UNCHARTED TRILOGY

Hot off the success of The Art of The Last of Us and The Art of Naughty Dog, Dark Horse Comics and Naughty Dog are launching The Art of the UNCHARTED Trilogy in April 2015.

A breathtaking, comprehensive exploration into the critically acclaimed UNCHARTED™ video game franchise, The Art of the UNCHARTED Trilogy offers a detailed look at the art of one of the most exciting game series of this generation. Filled with never-before-seen art from Naughty Dog spanning UNCHARTED: Drake’s Fortune™, UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves™, and UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception™, with insightful commentary from the games’ creators, this epic volume is an incredible opportunity to own a piece of UNCHARTED history.

“With each UNCHARTED game we make we strive to set a new bar for video game art, design, and tech,” said Erick Pangilinan, art director at Naughty Dog. “This book is an inside look at our creative process, the technology, and the artistry that goes into making Nathan Drake’s adventures come to life. Fans of the series and art in general will find many hidden treasures in this book.”

Available in April, The Art of the UNCHARTED Trilogy retails for $39.99 at Amazon and Barnes and Noble  .

Ensiferum - One Man Army (Video + Tour Dates)

You know what I love? I love Ensiferum! They are such a super awesome band. Life they smash it and the new album is a cornucopia of music fest for your ears. The first track released is 'One Man Army'. It's hard. It's fast. It's brutal. And yet it looses nothing of the Viking-esq pagan qualities.  ENSIFERUM's One Man Army will be released via Metal Blade Records on February 24th, 2015.

DARK HORSE COMICS AND BLIZZARD ENTERTAINMENT TEAM UP FOR WORLD OF WARCRAFT® BOOK SERIES


Dark Horse Comics is proud to announce a multi-volume series detailing the history of the Warcraft® universe: World of Warcraft®: Chronicle.

World of Warcraft: Chronicle Volume 1 is a journey through an age of myth and legend, a time long before the Horde and the Alliance came to be. This definitive tome of Warcraft history reveals untold stories about the birth of the cosmos, the rise of ancient empires, and the forces that shaped the world of Azeroth and its people.

“We often get questions from players who want to know more about the origins of the Warcraft universe, and the rise and fall of their favorite characters” said Paul Sams, chief operating officer of Blizzard Entertainment. “This new series digs deeply into all of that—we can’t wait for players to read it.”

This beautiful hardcover book features over twenty full-page illustrations by World of Warcraft artist Peter Lee and marks the first in a multipart series exploring the Warcraft universe; from the distant past to the modern era.

“This is an amazing project that will be absolutely irresistible to the legion of Warcraft fans. The people at Blizzard have been great to work with and we are extremely happy and proud to be working with them,” added Dark Horse President Mike Richardson.

World of Warcraft: Chronicle Volume 1 is on sale November 4, 2015 in comic shops and November 17 in bookstores!  Preorder your copy today!

HALSHUG: Copenhagen Raw Punk Crew Releases Track From Blodets Bånd Southern Lord Debut


The nightmare continues with news of Blodets Bånd, the caustic debut LP from Copenhagen raw punks HALSHUG, which will be unchained by Southern Lord on February 24th. As the street date closes in, today, Cvlt Nation unloads the first single from the riotous album today, with the sixth track, "Total Destruktion."

HALSHUG (which translates to 'decapitate') is fast becoming known within Europe's hallowed DIY routes and enclaves for their impeccably executed hardcore crust, which pays furious tribute to their rich K-town heritage and crucially adds an abrasive modern stomp. With searing distortion, radical d-beat pace and overblown, reverb-soaked vocals, HALSHUG leaves no room for subtlety or second-guessing across the eight tracks of their first full-length effort, Blodets Bånd. Watch as Blodets Bånd engulfs the world in flames.

Unload "Total Destruktion" via Cvlt Nation now at THIS LOCATION.

Also check out a trailer for the Blodets Bånd LP HERE.

Blodets Band Track Listing:
1. Gudsforladt
2. Afmagt
3. Inferno
4. Knæl
5. Blodets Bånd
6. Total Destruktion
7. Yderste Rand
8. Kvælende Frygt

Formed in Copenhagen two years ago, the riotous young act, HALSHUG, unloads some of the most traditionally-styled but urgently unloaded crust punk/d-beat hardcore to be found. This band is raw and loud. It's quintessential punk.  Through only an initial demo followed by their 2013-released Dödskontrol 7", the band has amassed a punishing name early in the powerful trio's lifespan through regional and even more heavily-concentrated European touring, and continues to expand on their live executions in 2014 with more widespread gigs than ever already ongoing and in the works. Following the release of Blodets Bånd, HALSHUG will tour abroad through Europe and will invade North America for the first time in 2015.

Keep of kalessin's Epistemology available in NA on February 24

Two-time Norwegian Grammy nominees, KEEP OF KALESSIN, will unleash their long-anticipated new full-length in North America next month via Indie Recordings.

Titled Epistemology, the eight-track offering, and first KEEP OF KALESSIN studio output in five years, finds the acclaimed black metal unit now conjuring their sonic wrath as a trio. Make no mistake, however. The indisputable power of these three musical craftsmen translates perfectly on the band's most diverse recording to date. As grandiose as a Peter Jackson battle scene bedecked with fire-breathing dragons and treacherous mountains draped in guitars and drums of doom, Epistemology highlights the true guitar virtuosity of vocalist/guitarist Obsidian C. From bone-scraping riffs and sweeping solos, to smooth, melodic passages swathed in warm, poignant tones backed by the military precision of bassist Wizziac and drummer Vyl, KEEP OF KALESSIN anno 2015 is heading out for greatness!

Simply and accurately crowned a, "flawless release from KEEP OF KALESSIN," by Metal Wani in an early review of the record, Epistemology -- a branch of philosophy that investigates the origin, nature, methods, and limits of human knowledge -- fuses the prime qualities of traditional '80s heavy metal, thrash, death and black metal into a smouldering album that is at once epic and extreme; brutal and elegant; engaging and empowering!

Epistemology Track Listing:
1. Cosmic Revelation (Intro)
2. The Spiritual Relief
3. Dark Divinity
4. The Grand Design
5. Necropolis
6. Universal Core
7. Introspection
8. Epistemology

KEEP OF KALESSIN's Epistemology will be available in North America digitally and on CD on February 24th, 2015 via Indie Recordings with track teasers to be unveiled in the weeks to come.

New Social Media-Based Metal Music Video Network Ready To See Official Launch On Twitter On 01/27/15

 (Golden, CO) January 20, 2015 -- The Metal Network™, a new, social media-based music video sharing and entertainment network, will launch officially on Twitter on Tuesday, January 27, 2015.

   The Metal Network™ will dish out a continuous dose of Metal music videos daily, drawn from a group of more than 13,000 YouTube and Vimeo-based videos programmed to circulate across a series of channel pages that will broadcast free Metal music video entertainment on Twitter 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

   The Metal Network™ features simple, on-demand music video viewing for channel page followers (with playable videos delivered straight to user home timelines), plus free promotion for the record labels (over 250) and Metal bands (several thousand) whose music videos have been programmed into the first phase of The Metal Network™.

   "I first noticed the possibility of broadcasting music videos within social media in 2009," says Mike Brochin, music video programmer and content curator for The Metal Network™. "In 2010, I created a few test groups of Twitter pages on which I'd posted descriptive links to several hundred music videos of different genres to gauge demand," he said.

   "It was a group of Metal video link pages that attracted the most followers, and those were expanded in 2012. In 2013, I programmed in another round of music videos, this time to embed within Twitter for on-demand play [without having to be redirected to YouTube or Vimeo]. That prompted strong follower growth in the latter part of 2013, so in 2014 I decided to build The Metal Network."

   With a cumulative following of over 500,000 across all channel pages currently (including individual band pages for Iron Maiden, Metallica & Slipknot), The Metal Network™ will ultimately operate as a genre-based sub-network of Social Music Net™, a planned online music portal to which several other music video sub-networks will be added in 2015.

   Previously, Brochin began an independent commitment to building and operating former music directory websites Rock And Metal Dot Com (launched in 2003) and Music Portal Dot Com (launched in 2004). Prior to that, he was independent publisher and editor of "Baseball Card Update," a monthly magazine distributed by Time/Warner.

Jimmy Page: How Stairway to Heaven was written - BBC News

This is just moving in so many ways. I have the actual album, vinyl. Hearing it like this takes me back to my childhood. Everything Zeppelin did was amazing to me as a child. I actually picked up guitar because I wanted to be Jimmy Page. The damn thing was bigger than I was. It's a moving and humbling experience some forty years later to see Jimmy Page sat in a comfy chair talking about the album and the song "Stairway to Heaven". To me he is still a god. Even as I watch the video and hear his voice and the song I am getting goosebumps. That is superior song writing. Thank you to the BBC for doing this piece. Thank you to Jimmy Page for being such an inspiration to musicians for decades.

"It was a tricky thing to do because there are lots of music and changes in it." - Jimmy Page

"Everyone is playing with such honesty and conviction and that shows." - Jimmy Page

KAMELOT SIGNS TO NAPALM RECORDS!



Symphonic Metal Masters KAMELOT entered the studio in mid 2014 to begin recording their follow-up to the highly acclaimed chart topping album Silverthorn. The new album will make KAMELOT history as it will be released worldwide (excl. Asia) on Napalm Records/Universal and Napalm Records/ADA-Warner as an exclusive licensing deal through the band's KAMELOT Music LLC this April/May 2015. In support of this highly anticipated release, KAMELOT will hit the road starting in March for select UK shows, followed by a massive North America Tour this Spring, with special guests Dragonforce (UK). Select Summer Festivals will follow and the band returns to Europe in September/October for their biggest headliner tour to date.

“We are extremely excited about having a growing and hungry independent label like Napalm with the power of major distribution that we will get with Universal and ADA Warner.” states KAMELOT founder and guitarist Thomas Youngblood

Thomas Caser, Vice President of Napalm Records:
“Being a fan since the band’s Epica release it has always been a dream for me to work with KAMELOT! Finally this dream has come true and we at Napalm Records are delighted and honoured to announce this signing. I foresee a bright future and we will spare no effort to bring the band to where they deserve to be – the top! Watch out for the band’s monumental new album this spring and witness KAMELOT & Napalm Records conquering the world in 2015!”



KAMELOT have held their own, very special position in the world of rock and heavy music: their elaborate melodic metal has always opened itself in a remarkably clever way to like-minded styles, integrating progressive elements as well as cross-references to doom/gothic metal and classical music, which have allowed their songs to define their own genre. Two of their most successful releases in particular, namely the albums Karma (2001) and The Black Halo (2005), are prime examples of KAMELOT’s multi-layered approach, intensity and outstanding musicality. Their last effort Silverthorn, saw the band raise this demanding standard even higher, because the album stands the test of time as a true masterpiece of grand gestures, gritty melodies and haunting atmospheres, showcasing KAMELOT at their finest.
