Globally renowned, chart-topping band DEVILDRIVER recently announced the upcoming release of their highly-anticipated full-length album of outlaw country-gone-metal anthems,
Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1.
The monstrous collection of savage metal interpretations will be released on July 6, 2018
Today, DEVILDRIVER is pleased to reveal the third video in a series of new interview commentary videos supporting the release of Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1.
The third segment, entitled “The Guests”, features members of DEVILDRIVER discussing what is was like to have so many iconic guests featured on the album, as well as album guests John Carter Cash, Randy Blythe of Lamb of God, Lee Ving of Fear, Hank3, Wednesday 13, and Burton C. Bell of Fear Factory reminiscing about how they came to be involved and their different approaches to recording the tracks.
In the video, drummer Austin D'Amond says: “It’s crossing sh*t off of a bucket list… like, really? I got to do a cover song of this legend [Johnny Cash] and his son [John Carter Cash] is on this f*cking track – wow, that’s bad as hell…. every one of these guests, it’s not like it’s some half-assed thing… they’re wailing on this sh*t. They’re psyched to be a part of it and we’re psyched to have them. It’s an honor.”

Don’t miss the first single from Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1, DEVILDRIVER’s rendition of Hank3’s “Country Heroes” featuring Hank3 himself:
From the opening seconds of Hank3’s “Country Heroes” onward, Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1 is simply one of the most invigorating records the band have made yet. More importantly, these evocative, irresistible songs have all been wholly rebuilt from the ground up, powered by the classic DEVILDRIVER sound and embellished with Fafara’s unmistakable feral roar. Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1 was produced, mixed and recorded with Steve Evetts (Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Sepultura, The Cure), and co-produced by DevilDriver guitarist Mike Spreitzer. The album was mastered by renowned engineer Alan Douches.
Completing this unprecedented project is a host of metal and country luminaries providing unforgettable cameos: horror metal icon Wednesday13 lends his incensed rasp to George Jones’ “If Drinking Don’t Kill Me”, 36 Crazyfists frontman Brock Lindow brings fire and soul to Steve Earle’s, “Copperhead Road”, and Fear Factory’s Burton C. Bell helps to turn Richard Thompson’s anti-war classic, “Dad’s Gonna Kill Me”, into a brooding gothic metal extravaganza. Meanwhile, Lamb of God members Randy Blythe and Mark Morton contribute to an exhilarating decimation of Willie Nelson’s “Whiskey River” before Randy makes a second appearance on DEVILDRIVER’s version of cowboy standard “Ghost Riders In The Sky”; the latter featuring the son and daughter of Johnny Cash himself, John Carter Cash and Ana Cristina Cash. The album also features the iconic voice of Fear, US punk rock legend Lee Ving, on Johnny Cash’s “The Man Comes Around” and David Allan Coe’s “The Ride”.

Challenges Trump in Hyper-Political Single To The Gallows
Iconic rockers OTEP recently announced details regarding their most uncompromising, candid, all- inclusive and controversial assessment of the current residing political regime that they have ever released.
OTEP will release their eighth full-length album, aptly titled Kult 45, on July 27, 2018 via Napalm Records.
Drawing influences from politically-charged recording artists of the past but allowing her artwork to remain fully and undeniably OTEP, Otep Shamaya continues her nearly two-decade invasion of the senses with Kult 45.
Today, OTEP dropped their first single from Kult 45 – a hyper-political outcry to the Resistance to challenge Trump’s falsehoods and hypocrisies – entitled “To the Gallows”.
Watch it here
Shamaya says, “Art is resistance. Art allows us to fightback without violence. This song, “To the Gallows”, is meant to shine a light on Traitor Trump’s attacks on the Constitution, on Healthcare, on the LGBTQ+, the African American, Hispanic and Muslim communities, DREAMERS, and women’s reproductive rights. Not to mention that this spurious President might have committed just a little bit of light treason, but this is why we rally, this is why we march, and this is why I write. Because when I look back someday I want to know that I did everything in my power as an artist, activist and citizen, to stop him and his bigoted embryonic autocracy.”
Throughout the span of her career, Otep Shamaya has been an undeniable force in bringing awareness via various acclaimed mediums to the social and political injustices felt by various communities and subcultures. For years, publications such as Revolver Magazine have lauded Shamaya for “following in the footsteps of outspoken musicians from folk singer Woody Guthrie to Rage Against The Machine's Zach de la Rocha”, dubbing her “one of music's catalysts for social change”. So, with the political climate as it is today, now it’s the perfect time to impact with Kult 45.
Shamaya has gone on record to say that Kult 45 is the most authentic album OTEP have ever released, at least since their first record, and self-producing it helped achieve this result. Kult 45 was recorded at The Lair in Los Angeles, completely utilizing the same equipment used for OTEP’s first album, Sevas Tra (down to Shamaya’s vocal microphone, a SHURE Beta 58), in order to create a sound reminiscent of their roots. Kult 45was self-produced by Otep Shamaya and Aristotle, with assistant engineering from Larry Goetz, Nicolas Schilke and Lizzy Ostro.
Kult 45 track listing:
1- Hail To The Thief
2- Halt Right
4- Said The Snake
6- Trigger Warning
7- Cross Contamination
8- Shelter In Place
9- Boss 10- To The Gallows
11- Sirens Calling
12- Invisible People
13- Be Brave
14- Wake Up (Cover of Rage Against the Machine)
15- Feral Oracle (Bonus Track)
16- The Tribe Speaks (Bonus Track)
OTEP does not hold back on Kult 45, pointing out all sorts of political duplicities and leaving them in their wake. The band explodes on aggressive, adamant anthems like “Halt Right” and “Molotov”, which act as timely outcries against the recent resurgence of hate groups. Tracks like the in-your-face “Cross Contamination”explore the hypocrisy of the evangelical right giving Trump a pass on his infidelities, and cherry-picking scriptures to fit their ideologies. “Invisible People” approaches immigration issues while pointing a strong finger at Trump, the electronically-charged “Boss” aims to break, fight, and redefine gender roles, “Shelter In Place”investigates the topic of school shootings, and “Trigger Warning” targets rape culture – specifically Stanford rapist Brock Turner –with a vengeance.
One of the last tracks on the album is a true-to-form cover of “Wake Up” – an homage to political music icons, major Kult 45 writing inspirations, and original track recording artists Rage Against The Machine. The album closes with the bonus track “The Tribe Speaks”, featuring recorded voicemails from fans expressing how OTEP’s music has changed their lives. Shamaya says the voicemails are truly moving and keep her fighting as an artist and activist.

Atmospheric black metal masters SHYLMAGOGHNAR have just released the official music video for their new single “As All Must Come To Pass” taken from their upcoming album Transience.
Nimblkorg on “As All Must Come To Pass”:
"Though time flows in directions unknown, one certainty looms: all must come to pass. We are highly pleased to share with you our first official music video, created by our visual artist and dear friend Minghao Xu. We hope you will enjoy the video and the music!"
Watch “As All Must Come To Pass” here
Hailing from the Netherlands, SHYLMAGOGHNAR became one of the most spoken of extreme metal duos in underground metal throughout the years. This is not just because of pure heaviness, not because of incredible song structures and not because of fiery emotional music. This is a combination connecting all of these factors and creating a raw and unique soundscape. With their debut album Emergence SHYLMAGOGHNAR achieved an amazing feat, without having signed to a label, their album reached nearly 1.700.000 views on the bands YouTube channel.
Transience will be out on June 29
