ARMORED SAINT NEW VIDEO
Armored Saint launches video for "Aftermath" online; pre-order
for new live album, 'Carpe Noctum', now available via Metal Blade
As previously announced, Armored Saint is releasing a new live album on February 24th (digitally on December 16th): Carpe Noctum. Having toured with Metallica, Whitesnake, Alice Cooper, The Scorpions, and many other artists since their inception in the early 80s, Armored Saint
has always been a highly regarded live act - not only in their hometown
of Los Angeles, but also around the world. The only official release to
capture this, however, is 1989's live album, Saints Will Conquer - until now, with Carpe Noctum, which was recorded at the band's 2015 Wacken festival set, as well as their headlining show in Aschaffenburg, Germany.
For a preview of Carpe Noctum, a live video of "Aftermath" from the Aschaffenburg show, filmed by Oliver "Bomber" Barth, can be viewed at: metalblade.com/armoredsaint - where the new Metal Blade Records pre-order for Carpe Noctum has also been launched.

CRY OF THE WOLF MAGAZINE Interview With FRANKIE BANALI Of QUIET RIOT
QUIET RIOT was not the first band that got me into heavy metal. I was already well entrenched in the power and the glory of bands like Sabbath, Saxon, and Dio. But for an impressionable youth the constant nagging from the "cool" kids at school about how lame metal was became very bothersome. Cliched white sneaker wearing future lawyers were constantly picking on me and my metal head friends. QUIET RIOT one day came on the radio and changed all that. Like an asteroid hitting the dinosaurs they wiped away all the so called un coolness about metal and made it mainstream. Suddenly all the jocks were "banging" their heads to songs like "Metal Health", And "slick Black Cadillac". So years later after the heavy smoke has cleared I got the chance to speak with one of the key architects of QUIET RIOT, Mr. Frankie Banali. They are about to release ROAD RAGE on Frontiers Records and it so…

Sabaton was formed back in 1999 in Falun, Sweden when the members of a band called "Aeon" reformed and rearmed for the upcoming first recording in Moon Music Studio. The founding members of Aeon: Rikard, Pär and Daniel Mullback had joined forces with Oskar and Joakim earlier during the year which had seen a few line-up changes and the guys decided on a fresh start and changed the name of the band to Sabaton. These are the same guys you see on stage today.
As a young proto-metalhead living in the hard streets of Riverside, Rhode Island we would all gather at whoever had the latest vinyl release and rock out for hours. Discussing techniques, listening to lyrics, guitar solos. The best albums offered up energy at its purest form. It transmitted from the vinyl grooves right into our little teenage brains. You could literally feel what the band or artist was trying to convey.
Metallica's latest release, Hardwired to self destruct offers up a modern day version of that same energy and spirit from days gone by. It is a powerful statement from a band that many had written off. One song...Now were all dead...that is the only song you need to listen to. But there are many, many more. This is grade a material from a group of artists who managed to capture their energy and channel it through this disc. This is real, this is power, this is the definition of a classic metal album.
Another great sign of a good, solid album is that you can list…
