SARATAN sign with Massacre Records!

Polish metallers SARATAN have inked a deal with Massacre Records!

The band was formed by Jarosław Niemiec, Wiktor Niemiec, Adam Augustyński and Maciek Dudek in 2003 in Kraków, Poland. After some line-up changes, the band started recording a demo entitled "Infected With Life" in December 2005 at the ZED Studio with Tomek Zalewski, which received very good reviews in heavy metal magazines and webzines across the world.

One year later the band decided to record their first full-length album "The Cult Of Vermin", which was released in April 2008 via the Italian label My Kingdom Music.

The second album "Antireligion" followed in June 2010.

SARATAN toured with bands such as Sadist, Virgin Snatch and Crionics.

The band’s upcoming third album, entitled “Martya Xwar”, is going to be released on November 23rd via Massacre Records!

Documentary - Metal From Hellas

 Metal From Hellas is a film made by Nick Papakostas and Panagiotis Simopoulos as a project they had for the Technological Institute of Music Technology & Acoustics. It's the history of Greek Heavy Metal from the 80s to today. English subtitles made and embeded by me to be easier to watch by metalheads who don't speak Greek. Many thanx to Nick for the permission to upload it. I hope you enjoy it, despite my shitty English. Heavy metal re mounia!

Mike Portnoy, Brian Tichy & Michael Devin: Backstage Bonham Q&A, Part 2 of 2

Immediately after the Bonham Birthday Bash at House Of Blues in Hollywood, California, on May 31, 2012, where nearly two dozen pro drummers had just finished celebrating Bonzo's birth 64 years ago with their heartfelt renditions of classic Led Zeppelin tunes, we cornered event organizer and current Whitesnake drummer Brian Tichy in one of the backstage dressing rooms to talk about what just transpired and to hear a little about his love for the man of the hour, John Bonham.

In this clip, Tichy's Whitesnake bandmate and bassist for the evening's backing band, The Moby Dicks, Michael Devin, joined in for a spirited discussion on iconic rhythm sections and playing by feel. And if that wasn't enough, we collared current DRUM! cover boy and avowed Bonham fanatic Mike Portnoy on his way through, who was eager to show off his Zeppelin tats and share some thoughts on the man of the hour.

ATOMA - Rainmen | Napalm Records

AtomA -- Skylight:
Goodbye Planet Earth....
An atmospheric journey to the ends of the universe. The breath-taking cover of "Skylight" makes it clear from the beginning where the journey comprising 10 tracks will lead to. AtomA places the infinite reaches of the universe at the feet of their fans, presenting an atmospheric apocalyptic epos. 

As Planet Earth has become inhospitable, a group of astronauts take on the unexplored cosmos in search of a new home for mankind. In order to relate their tale, the Swedish trio create a synthesized sound sphere deeply anchored on a driving rock foundation. The songs evoke ethereal and electronic details that provide the complexity necessary to transform this release into a spectacular journey of discovery across the solar system. 

The masterful songwriting and the attention to detail are especially apparent on songs like "Resonance", the title track "Skylight", and "Rainmen". AtomA's "Skylight" is a post rock/metal album that will make an adventurous astronaut out of anyone who listens, and allow them to take on the future fate of man. Goodbye, Planet Earth...
