I love compiling the news of all the interesting things happening here and there, across the globe. Here’s another set of weekly compilation, bringing to you the likes of ANTHRAX, DISCHARGE and much more interesting stuffs!
DISCHARGE– British legends DISCHARGE, signs to Nuclear Blast Records. Formed back in 1977, who were cited as major influences to Metallica, Anthrax etc., This band was formed by, Terry “Tezz” Roberts, his twin brother Tony “Bones” Roberts and Royston “Rainy” Wainwright. The band comments, “DISCHARGE are very happy to say we’ve signed to Nuclear Blast Records, a label that knows the genre and believes in what we do. We love the family atmosphere that revolves around the label and we are proud to be on their roster of great bands, some of whom are friends of ours. We’re excited about our new album ‘End Of Days’, with three quarters of the original classic line up (Bones, Rainy and Tezz), plus Dave on drums and JJ Janiak on vocals – who captures the original DISCHARGE sound and spirit. Original drummer Tezz moves onto rhythm guitar, so this is the first time in the band’s history that we’ve had a five-piece line-up. ‘End Of Days’ are upon us, but it‘s just the beginning for us with Nuclear Blast…the nightmare continues!

MIRROR- Multinational Heavy Metallers MIRROR launch new single “Mirror” exclusively via Deaf Forever Germany!
Heavy Metal conjurers, MIRROR, will unveil the cult craftings of their self-titled debut through Metal Blade Records on November 13th, 2015.
The brainchild of bassist/die-hard metal connoisseur/Satan’s Wrath vocalist Tas Danazoglou, MIRROR was forged in fire following a chance meeting with London-based producer (Cathedral, Angel Witch, Paradise Lost) and accomplished drummer, Jaime Gomez Arellano. The union ultimately led to the two embarking on a shared musical vision that encompasses a classic hard-rock/proto-metal sound with tasteful songwriting and musicianship. Satan’s Wrath guitarist, Stamos K., was next to join, his musical instincts and considerable production experience suiting the band’s ethos perfectly. Vocalist, Jimmy Mavromatis who, with his operatic tenor, rounded out the growing unit would subsequently join the ranks. The ouroboros was completed with the final addition of Los Angeles-based guitarist Matt Olivo whose infamy was earned as the co-founder of grindcore pioneers, Repulsion.
