AGENT STEEL - New Album "No Mercy From The Godz" via Dissonance Productions
The unstoppable force returns! It’s been a long time anticipated, and now it’s official: 1980’s speed metal veteran, founder/vocalist John Cyriis, has resurrected his brand creation, the “Agent Steel band and it’s new incarnation in 2019 ... is finally upon us!”
The band’s current line-up consists of guitarist Nikolay Atanasov, and original AS guitarist Bill Simmons; Mr.Simmons is the first/original guitarist of the AS lineup, as the band first appeared throughout the L.A. club circuit in 1983. Also included in this classic/new lineup are bassist Joe McGuigan (Gama Bomb) and drummer Dennis Kruse Strømberg. This incarnation of AS is the long-awaited reactivation featuring Agent Steel founder, brand creator, vocalist John Cyriis, who appeared on all three original classic albums, (i.e., Skeptics Apocalypse, Mad Locust Rising, and the platinum seller Unstoppable Force). John is very pleased with this new lineup, which he is confident will arise as the very best lineup in the band’s history and whom he believes are certain to compliment the band’s legacy, and about manifest an about-face—that to counter and transcend the band’s “less than competent performance” by a stand-in and unofficial lineup at the KIT festival 2019!!
The official new Agent Steel lineup are currently working on the band’s 4th true and official studio album titled, “No Mercy From The Godz”—which is scheduled for an imminent October 18, 2019 launch.
The band are also preparing for their forthcoming shows at various privileged confirmed dates—beginning on Friday 6 December and Saturday 7 December in Milan and Firenze, Italy. John and the new Agent Steel incarnation are also preparing for a monumental first time appearance in Greece as headliners, performing at Up The Hammers festival in Athens, Greece—March of 2020. This headlining performance is forecast as being fertile metal soil for the band’s first live Agent Steel DVD/album to be captured as fronted by original founding vocalist John Cyriis. Expect this lineup to be the best ever incarnation of Agent Steel—stronger, faster, and deployed to demonstrate just who are the True Masters of Metal. Be on the lookout for the Agent Steel craft to land in your country - certain to energize all you bangers with Hammering Speed Metal!

THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION - New Album Announcement - 'Memoirs Of A Rat Queen'
Australian psychedelic rock and roll occultists THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION have completed the recording sessions for their forthcoming fourth full-length, “Memoirs Of A Rat Queen”. The album, tracked by bassist Jaytanic Ritual and The Pet Food Factory in Marrkville, Sydney, will be the band’s first for Cruz Del Sur Music and will see the light of day this September.
“It took a while longer than we originally anticipated, which is what we should have expected,” says guitarist Inverted CruciFox. “We try to include a lot of small details that reward headphone-wearing listeners who use our records to travel to alternate dimensions. There has to be enough fuel to accommodate their journey.”
Accordingly, the band’s blend of progressive, metal and space rock will be on full display on their new album, sure to please followers of the band. “It feels a bit different, yet a natural progression, which was the aim,” says CruciFox. “I feel like we have paid our sonic respects to QUEEN, MOTÖRHEAD, T-REX and many others.”
Since The Pet Food Factory is run by Ritual, there is a certain sense of familiarity with the studio’s confines. CruciFox says that other underground acts in Sydney often benefit from “residual magicks leftover by [vocalist] The Imperial Priestesses’ occasional presence there.” Therefore, it is little surprise the rest of THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION takes cues from their imitable frontwoman.
“There are few specific recollections of the process,” notes CruciFox. “We simply present at the studio and swiftly fall under the thrall of the Imperial Priestess who conducts the music through us via mind control. There is a feeling of disorientation and euphoria followed by shock that 12 months has passed and the album is complete.”
With “Memoirs Of A Rat Queen” now in the bag, all CruciFox and his THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION bandmates can do is bide their time until it’s unleashed upon the unwitting metal masses. “We are awaiting the response of the ancient ones — a centuries-old council of mystic faeries who determine which of the new songs shall be added to the set. It’s an unconventional approach, but we stand by our methods.”

ACID REIGN - UK Thrashers sign with Dissonance Productions
Its been a while but they’re back with arguably their finest album to date. ACID REIGN will release their third full-length on Dissonance Productions this September.
Vocalist Howard Smith had this to say: “For our first album in 29 years it was vitally important that we find the right home and I feel we have. From the very first contact it was obvious that the Dissonance team not only had an overwhelming enthusiasm for what we have recorded but the intelligence and infrastructure to deliver. Many involved are the same people I dealt with when curating The Apple Core Archives in 2014 which was a hassle free experience, so we are going to release a four disc retrospective Acid Reign Anthology package after the new album comes out cos I found some more old stuff and our two singles need a CD home. Who knows you may even see some vinyl reissues too! We cannot wait to unleash this beast and hit the road in support of it, once it’s out it will be two years since we started writing and a year since we recorded it. No one is as keen as us for you all to hear the results. Over the next few months we’ll be drip feeding you all information, we have so many plans for really cool things that we think you are all going to love. Stay tuned.”
Label head honcho Steve Beatty: Its great they are back with a new album and I am pleased they are on the Label, its another great addition to the roster and I’m excited about the new album. As long as they don’t cover anymore Blondie songs Im a happy camper!"

BEHEADED - Lyric Video Premiere - The Charlatan's Enunciation
Malta's premiere death metal outfit BEHEADED reveal a new track from their upcoming album "Only Death Can Save You", which will be released on June 14th via Agonia Records. Available as a lyric video, "The Charlatan's Enunciation" is the album's opening track, and second the single to see the light of day after "A Greater Terror".

"Only Death Can Save You" was recorded and mixed at Mk2 Recording Studio, run by the band's drummer, Davide Billa. The album was mastered at Hertz Studio in Poland. Cover artwork was painted by Daniel Corcuero (Nekronikon).
