Ripple Music has set May 14th as the date on which APE MACHINE's “Mangled by the Machine” will be made available to the masses (one day earlier in the UK).
A conceptual album that mixes animal aggression and technical precision, APE MACHINE's “Mangled by the Machine” carries an organic depth and warmth rarely heard since the time of rock's glorious early years, and infused with an exceptional modern sensibility. When the pissed-off, protest-minded lyrics lock in with the band's stone-cold groove, APE MACHINE demonstrates an earth-shaking ability to rock.
Italian deathsters Hateful will release their second new full-length album, “Epilogue of Masquerade”, before the end of June 2013 by The Spew Records (a division of Punishment 18 Records).
The CD will be mixed at Soundbusters Studios in Modena and will be mastered at Dan Swanö’s Unisound studios (Edge of Sanity, Bloodbath, Cronian, Evergrey, Lay Down Rotten, Marduk, Opeth...).
The setlist for the new LEBOWSKI’s album selected! It was a difficult task to extract 8 compositions out of 16. This means only one thing, the 3rd album will come sooner than expected!
Now we will spend a couple of weeks refining the tone and arrangements, then the entire summer in the studio. Those who have had a chance to listen to us live, already are familiar with a huge part of the new material and know what they can expect.
Guitarist Joe Satriani has launched a video for his new single “A Door Into Summer” taken from his new 2013 album “Unstoppable Momentum”.
The video features exclusive footage from the famed Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, California, where Joe recorded the new album with Mike Keneally, Vinnie Colaiuta and Chris Chaney.
The video is directed by Jon Luini and Arthur Rosato for Chime Interactive.

Germany's dark metal quintet AGATHODAIMON is currently working hard on the successor of their 2009 release "Phoenix".
They've entered the Kohlekeller Studios in February and hope to finish the recordings with producer Kristian "Kohle" Kohlmannslehner in late April.
The band's new album is entitled “In Darkness” and will be released this summer!
Here's what guitarist and vocalist Sathonys has to say about it:
After their first successful collaboration on “Don’t Explain” this highly talented duo is back with “Seesaw”. As with “Don’t Explain”, “Seesaw” is tastefully produced by Kevin Shirley (Black Crowes, John Hiatt, Joe Bonamassa, Led Zeppelin).
"Beth’s got a pretty heady voice, very reminiscent of Janis Joplin", says Shirley. "She’s also got a lot of Etta James in her. With this material, there’s gentleness to the way she delivers the most heartfelt tunes. She’s done a fantastic job".
Today, Norwegian symphonic gothic metallers SIRENIA are happy to reveal first details on their upcoming new album that will be released via Nuclear Blast on June 28, 2013!

01. Ducere Me In Lucem
02. Seven Widows Weep
