BANDS & PERFORMERS:

Cradle Of Filth
(UK) / January 29, 2017

Forthcoming release:

Currently in the studio working on a new Cradle Of Filth album, the band recently checked in with another brief update: “The new Cradle album is coming along very brutally”. Frontman Dani Filth recently checked in with the following: "The album is sounding very elaborate, even now with just the drum arsenal and four guitar tracks laid down, calling to mind the bastard lovechild betwixt 2015’s “Hammer of the Witches” and 1998’s “Cruelty And the Beast”. Also includes a Cradle-lized cover of Annihilator’s classic title track 'Alice in Hell', as personally endorsed by Jeff Waters".

Black Sabbath
(UK) / January 29, 2017

Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has revealed plans to record with former frontman Tony Martin. He sang with the band for two stints between 1987 and 1997, appearing on their albums “The Eternal Idol”, “Headless Cross”, “Tyr”, “Cross Purposes”, “Cross Purposes Live” and “Forbidden”. His time with Sabbath ended after they settled their differences with Ozzy Osbourne. Now Martin has been lined up to add new music to the re-release versions of “Headless Cross” and “Tyr”. Iommi tells: “We’ve held back on the reissues because of the current Sabbath thing with Ozzy, but they will certainly be happening. I’d like to do a couple of new tracks for those with Tony. I’ll also be looking at working on “Cross Purposes” and “Forbidden”.” Iommi and Martin last met at the unveiling of a plaque to commemorate late drummer Cozy Powell. The singer said later: “I was greeted by Tony very warmly. It’s the first conversation of any length I’ve had with him in 15 years. And it turns out we may well be working together soon”. Black Sabbath is currently performing on their final world tour, which includes a headline appearance at this year’s Download festival in June.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank absolutely everyone. You have made it possible for us to have been on this incredible ride. Words alone will never be enough to express all our thoughts and feelings. We are completely aware that without all of you and your support we wouldn't be where we are right now. Although it will be bittersweet, we're very much looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible this year. We will make every effort to visit new territories and hope the circumstances will allow it. Here's hoping we'll see you all somewhere on the road so we can thank you in person!" Saga formed in 1977 in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, and released their self-titled debut in 1978.
