CRY OF THE WOLF MAGAZINE INTERVIEW WITH CARPATHIA

When your local metal scene conjures about it's own female fronted progressive metal band, Cry Of the Wolf Magazine just had to know more.



Who came up with the name? Our Bassist Andrew  describe your writing process. Is it one person with a riff or a team effort?
It's 80% our guitarist or bassist coming up with a riff and 20% team effort  How has the New England scene treated the band?
Wicked good kehd. Hah. Our bassist is actually from NC but he fits in quite well. The scene has been like family to us, and we hope they view us in the same way. 
 Female fronted metal and symphonic metal bands have exploded on the scene, especially from Europe. What do you attribute to the rising success of these bands as well as your own? People who love heavy music however also enjoy more variety of vocal style and more of a progressive approach, can really appreciate our style of music. 
Social media: positive or negative as it relates to your band

CRY OF THE WOLF INTERVIEW WITH VIRTUAL SYMMETRY
Can you give us a run down of the writing process for the band Sure! The songwriting process always begins with an individual improvisation (a bass line, a vocal melody, a keyboard/guitar harmonic cycle or an epic theme), presented to the whole band, or a full-band jam. The best ideas get refined and arranged for all the instruments, including vocals, in the most natural and spontaneous way for every member. When we're satisfied by the result we get to writing the lyrics, meticulously working on any possible arrangement improvement. Only when everything suits to the goals we wanted to reach, we head to the recording studio. who came up with the name? Our name was an early idea of our guitarist and founder Valerio, it stands for that balance which stands out of the physical part of life, a more mental, emotional and if you wish spiritual balance in the life of each and everyone of you. And we aim for reaching that concept through our mu…

KREATOR UNLEASH VIDEO FOR ‘PLEASURE TO KILL’ TO CELEBRATE NOISE ERA RE-ISSUES.

For Immediate Release:
KREATOR UNLEASH VIDEO FOR ‘PLEASURE TO KILL’ TO CELEBRATE NOISE ERA RE-ISSUES.
“This video is a tribute to eighties slasher movie culture. We have kept this very simple and the idea is, to take you back on a trip to the eighties to celebrate the re-release of our first four albums. Enjoy!”  - Mille Petrozza
Kreator’s second album ‘Pleasure To Kill’ is still revered as a benchmark album in thrash metal circles. Often uttered in the same breath as such masterpieces as ‘Master Of Puppets’ and ‘Reign In Blood’, it firmly put German thrash on the map and has rippled out its influence over the past four decades to many thrash and death metal contemporaries.
Released on November 1st 1986 on the, then fledgling Noise records it never had a promo video made for it so the band would have to wait a couple of years before their debut video was shot in form of the track ‘Betrayer’.
Now, some 31 years later Kreator are proud to premiere this video for the title track of this se…

CRY OF THE WOLF REVIEW OF MARITA "ROUGH STUFF"

CRY OF THE WOLF REVIEW OF MARITA "ROUGH STUFF"


This is pure rock and roll that harkens back to the glory days of the 80's. Those golden days of spandex nights and hair sprayed nights. When the innocence of our very world seemed to never end and paradise was just a flock of seagulls away. This album is full of those rocking riffs and sing able lyrics we all grew up. Those perfect albums that you could dance to and rock out to.

      Marita has this charisma and charm that speak of good times, rock and roll, and rough stuff. The production is perfectly in sync with her vocal style and features some killer guitar shredding. This is get up and dance or thrash your room music. Danceable yet dangerous on so many levels.  "Bikini Cleopatra" and "Cuff Me" are two stand out tracks. 
     Just great rock and roll. But just when you think your sinking in to a predictable pattern, along comes a song like "Let Me Go" which features a dark and foreboding ly…

CRY OF THE WOLF INTERVIEW WITH MIDNIGHT PROPHECY

CRY OF THE WOLF INTERVIEW WITH MIDNIGHT PROPHECY
Who came up with the name?
That would be Pete. After a long time struggling with names we started thinking about themes, darkness is a general theme in metal and prophecies or tales of occultism and foresight often make for the best stories, so that's where it comes from. One day Pete came out with it and we were all "Yes!" In agreement.
Describe your writing process. Does everyone contribute?
Our process for writing varies most of the time, a good 90% of our songs are musically cowritten between members but more recently there's been more ideas coming out of Chris with the odd bit here and there from someone else. It mostly depends on who has the time to put their ideas to paper music wise. Lyrically everything is written by Craig, with perhaps a line here and there from someone else if Craig likes it.
 Are there any subjects you won’t write about?
We'd like to say we'd never write a song regarding love …

PRONG “Zero Days” Release Date: Friday, July 28th, 2017

PRONG
“Zero Days”
Release Date: Friday, July 28th, 2017
Overview:
The new PRONG-Album“Zero Days”is another monster of an album, another step towards refining the perfect PRONG-Sound and another album that lacks any filler or lacklustre moment.
Musically, it hits home from the first bars of the mighty opener “However It May End”to the last bars of the albums closing track“Wasting Of The Dawn”. Every track is it’s own emotional roller-coaster ride, chock-full of massive riffage, ironclad grooves and topped off by Victor’s ever-improving vocal delivery.
“Zero Days"was once again produced byTommy Victor,with trusted collaboratorChris Collier as co-producer and engineer.
Tommy Victortalks about“Zero Days”:
“I must say a lot of effort was put into this new “Zero Days” recording. From the minute I would get off tour, I would consolidate ideas from the road and form new ones. Again the focus was on creating good songs. We wanted this record to be modern as well as holding justice to al…
