DAWN OF A DARK AGE, extreme avant-garde black metal band led by multi-instrumentalist Vittorio Sabelli, is mixing the third album ‘Fire’ together with Marcello Malatesta.
The Finnish singer Raato (Graveborne, Grym) joined in this new chapter of the exhalogy ‘The Six Elements’, together with the Underworld String Trio and Antje.
A new exciting pagan trip around the saga ‘The Six Elements’, where black metal meets free jazz, classical and popular music in a very unique and singular sound.
Comments the leader: “I am proud of the contribution that new musicians have added to the music, especially because we are moving away from the uniformity of sounds and the repetitive patterns that now reign supreme in the black metal, always looking for new musical ways and a very unique identity in the metal scene”.
The cover artwork, which will be unveiled shortly, was once again created by Nino R. Mejia, who previously worked with the band on chapters I ‘Earth’ and II ‘Water’, and the photos by ViLa.
More details are coming soon.
Polish Rockers CHEMIA have released a brand new video “Fire”. The video was shot on January, 9th in Warsaw during the band’s show at Club 55.
The band comment: “The video was made on the 9th of January, 2014 at the club “55” during our annual concert – OPENCHEMIA. The whole footage was shot using our audience’s devices (smartphones, etc.). Maybe we had started a new tradition? We had a good nose for it – we had already made a video for this song before launching the tour. Emotions run really high when we play it live.”
“Fire” video is available on the band’s official YouTube channel at THIS

“Fire” comes from the album „The One Inside”, released internationally in Autumn 2013. The band are currently working on their next studio album to be released later this year.

CHEMIA is the Polish band that stole the heart of Ralph James, one of the bosses of The Agency Group, the biggest concert agency in the world. They are the band best known to the German fans of the football club Borussia Dortmund. They are the favorite band of the very popular Canadian side-man, Marc LaFrance (Alice Cooper, The Cult, David Lee Roth and many others). And finally, they are the band that was invited twice to the famous Warehouse Studio where such bands as Metallica, Nirvana, AC/DC, R.E.M and Biffy Clyro recorded their albums. The band was formed by the guitarist Wojtek Balczun in 2010 in Warsaw and their current line-up also includes: Maciej Mąka (guitar), Krzysztof Jaworski (bass guitar), Adam Kram (drums), Rafał Stępień (keyboards) and Łukasz Drapała (vocals). The band performed together with such big artists as Red Hot Chili Peppers and Guns N’ Roses! In Autumn 2012, Chemia left for the Canadian Warehouse Studio to record their third studio album “The One Inside”. During the whole recording process they were supported by Marc LaFrance and the album was mixed by Eric Mosher (Chickenfoot, Joe Satriani).
“The One Inside” features 13 rock tracks inspired by classic rock ranging from the Beatles to Led Zeppelin and by the best post grunge tunes!

Video footage of MANRAZE — the rock outfit featuring Phil Collen of DEF LEPPARD, Simon Laffy from GIRL and Paul Cook of the SEX PISTOLS — performing a cover version of the JIMI HENDRIX classic “Fire” can be seen below. Collen and his bandmates pay homage to Hendrix while still managing to infuse the song with the highly amped spirit that is MANRAZE.
“Fire” has been a staple of MANRAZE‘s live shows since the group’s first London gigs began in 2005.
Hendrix‘s three-piece band provided the signature blueprint for MANRAZE as Collen and his fellow musicians continued to gain recognition for their cleverly written and arranged infectious reggae/rock rhythms.
MANRAZE‘s sophomore album, “punkfunkrootsrock”, was unleashed upon the masses on August 2 through Rocket Science Ventures in the U.S. and Canada. The album was also released July 27 in Japan on Nippon/Columbia and in the Europe via Edel Music.
It all started in 2004 when Phil Collen, after 20-plus years as lead guitarist for DEF LEPPARD, decided to express himself via another creative outlet — something a bit closer to his musical home. After a chance meeting on the street with Paul Cook, MANRAZE finally released their debut album, “Surreal”, through Universal Records in the summer of 2008 to rave reviews. The group’s debut album was chocked full of rebellious in-your-face mantras (“Turn it Up”, “This Is”, “Running Me Up”) ranging from hardcore punk to dub.
