DOBERMANN have released the second single and video for the title track of their upcoming album ‘Shaken to the core’.
The single heralds the new album of the power trio, which was assembled by renowned producer Alessandro Del Vecchio, and will be out next June 11th through Wild Mondays Music / Horus Music UK.
A decade long true rock pedigree, Dobermann have toured relentlessly, fiercely accruing over 800 shows in 15 countries and counting.
Despite having no booking agency or management, the band led by singer, bass player and firebreather Paul Del Bello, and completed by guitar shredder Valerio Ricciardi and powerhouse drummer Antonio Burzotta, has also kept up consistent studio activity, releasing 3 albums and an EP in a mere 8 years.
‘Pure Breed’, their 2017 release scored excellent reviews all around the globe, and assured them successful tours with Great White, The Quireboys, Phil Campbell of Motorhead, Richie Ramone and Chris Holmes to name a few.
Dobermann have also hit major festival stages all over Europe, at Rock the Ring, Pivo in Cvetje Lasko, Suoni di Marca and Cubelles Rock among the others.

After nearly 2 1/2 decades of death metal dominance with 9 cataclysmic albums in their arsenal, Norway’s veteran annihilators BLOOD RED THRONE have officially joined the roster of Nuclear Blast!
Commenting on the signing, founding guitarist Daniel “Død” Olaisen states:“Becoming a part of the NB family has been a huge goal for me for years. I always meant BRT deserved better after all these years and when I got to meet Gerardo Martinez (U.S.A. General Manager) and Oscar Martinez (Product Manager) when we toured the US 11 years ago, I kept in touch with them and tried to convince signing us even back then. Years went and albums were released and I never gave up. I knew we had a real masterpiece this time with the new album, and Gerardo simply could not let it go this time. When he sent over the contract, both the band and especially myself were super excited and satisfied. Finally, after 10 years of trying! This band has so much potential and what better option than Nuclear Blast to team up with!”
BLOOD RED THRONE spent most of their Covid-quarantine writing riffs and recently wrapped recording their highly anticipated 10th album that’s due out later this year.
Olaisen adds: “BRT still delivers quality death metal, but even after writing the first song, we felt that we were on to something new this time. Of course, it’s still death metal, but some of the riffs and arrangements introduce something new for us at least. 10 bad ass tracks wrapped in a killer production, we really can’t wait to show our old fans as well as gaining new ones. Death metal will never die and we will keep going til the end!”

Italian metal giants LACUNA COIL just recently announced the release of a new live album, entitled “Live From The Apocalypse”, to be released on June 25th!
As of now the live version of “Apocalypse”, originally released on the latest studio album “Black Anima”, is available on all digital platforms! You can watch the video to “Apocalypse” taken from the bonus DVD here:
“Looking at the sand gliding down through the hourglass… ‘Apocalypse’ is factual and actual in today’s pandemic, though we couldn’t foresee this when we wrote it: the separation, the solitude, the confusion, the resilience. We keep on fighting for our will to survive.“ – Cristina Scabbia
“Apocalypse is usually a huge concept involving destruction or damage and the way the world ends. In our vision, there’s no big apocalypse just endless little ones. Ignorance, complacency, selfishness alone can bring apocalypse.” – Andrea Ferro
“Live From The Apocalypse” is the fruit of an unprecedented time. Unlike previous live efforts the Italians, under the yoke of the pandemic, cleverly devised a way for their devoted fan base to hear and see them on stage by organizing a special live stream event performing their latest album, “Black Anima” in its entirety, in September 2020. This very special show will now be released on vinyl and CD as well as a digital album. The physical album formats come with a bonus DVD featuring the footage of the original live stream.
“Live From The Apocalypse” will be available in various formats and can be pre – ordered HERE!

By all accounts, this was no ordinary gig. Even though LACUNA COIL were in their hometown of Milan—at the famed Alcatraz Club—there were no fans to greet them. No roar of anticipation; No claps of adulation; No interaction with the people who had become deeply involved in and had a profound love for LACUNA COIL’s music and live shows over two-plus decades. The live stream energy was different. It had to be. With hearts on their sleeves, cameras rolling, and the world tuning in online, LACUNA COIL brought “Black Anima: Live from the Apocalypse” to life.
“On one hand, it felt awkward to play for a huge empty room,” tells vocalist Andrea Ferro. “ But, on the other hand, it felt great to finally reconnect with our fans at home and with the people working behind the scenes. A lot of people enjoyed the show—it was definitely a one-off event loaded with a lot of emotions and feelings. Live from the Apocalypse is an opportunity to offer a new release to our fans while the COVID-19 crisis is still a real thing, affecting them and us. The live album represents a unique moment in our career (and life) that will be forever remembered as that one time when we literally ‘rose from the Apocalypse.’”
Also don’t miss to pre-order “HORNS UP!”, LACUNA COIL’s very own tabletop (or better yet, concert floor!) party game in pure rock style. The game itself takes place at a LACUNA COIL show, where each player must fight his or her way to be the first to reach the stage. There will obviously be many “friendship-threatening” actions challenging the opponents. LACUNA COIL band members will be an active presence in the game: they are depicted on the Stage Cards, and each of these will have consequences on the whole audience! You can pre-order your copy HERE.
The pre-order campaign is live worldwide and as the number of requested copies rises, the project will become more developed, with new events and new expansions. Shipping Worldwide from November 2021.

It’s been four years since the last THE RASMUS album Dark Matters. During the last pandemic-infused year, The Rasmus have been busy recording their 10th album together with UK based, Danish born producer Joshua.
The Rasmus return with the first fruits of those sessions in the form of new single & lyric video“Bones”.
The Rasmus‘ singer Lauri Ylönen discusses Bones: ”It’s about bad karma. Whatever you leave behind in life, you’ll find in front of you one day. This song presents a slightly different sound but still has the typical dark layer of The Rasmus.”
“Bones” will be followed by more singles in the Autumn, leading up to a full album release in 2022 (details to follow). The album release will be backed-up by a worldwide tour. All dates can be found listed below.
The single and album were produced and mixed together with Joshua whose credits include Kent, MEW, Kashmir, Guano Apes, Broder Daniel, Carpark North and many more. • Producer of the Year Denmark (2000) for Kashmir “The Good Life” (6 Grammys) • Producer of the Year Sweden (2010) for Kent “Röd” (7 Grammis’) • Multiple Platinum/Gold Albums as both Producer, Engineer and Mixer.

More info on The Rasmus: The Rasmus were formed in 1995 while the members were still in high school. Their debut, Peep, rapidly went gold in their homeland Finland, making the members rock stars at the age of 16. The follow-up, Playboys, also went gold and earned the group an Emma, Finland’s version of a Grammy. Their third album, Hell of a Tester, included “Liquid,” a track that was voted Best Single of the Year by Finland’s music critics. 2001’s Into album went double platinum in their native country, with its debut single, “F-F-F-Falling,” hitting the top of the charts. An international audience started to build, and the band toured throughout Europe. Their fifth album Dead Letters, released in 2003, became the band’s biggest breakthrough yet, due in large part to the success of the single “In the Shadows”. 2005’s Hide from the Sun went platinum in Finland. Their fourth Finnish chart-topper, Black Roses, was released in 2008, produced by Desmond Child. After the release of compilation Best of The Rasmus: 2001-2009 and a 2011 solo LP from Lauri Ylönen titled New World, The Rasmus released their self-titled eighth album, The Rasmus in 2012. The band returned in 2017 with the album Dark Matters. The Rasmus are still one Europe’s most in demand rock acts. They have toured Scandinavia many times as well as Central Europe, Asia, Japan, Canada, USA and South America. The Rasmus are vocalist Lauri Ylönen, bassist Eero Heinonen, guitarist Pauli Rantasalmi, and drummer Aki Hakala.
