The idyllic slopes and crystalline lakes of beautiful Bavaria stood no chance when Dust Bolt emerged in 2006 to encrust Germany and the rest of the world in hefty, Bay Area-influenced thrash metal featuring crossover influences and killer melodies. The fourpiece elevates its trademark sound to perfection on fourth longplayer Trapped in Chaos: profound lyrics and dark melodies succumb to the lethal grooves of old school monster ‘Dead Inside‘ before you`ll get swept off your feet by the hyperspeed aggression of ‚ The Bad Ad‘. ‘Shed My Skin‘ proclaims the Toxic Waltz 2.0 in particularly nasty fashion, and Dust Bolt prove once more how pure hostility, massive hooks and melodic vocals are the ultimative recipe for a thrashfest between retro and modern. Catch them on their headlining tour Spring 2019!

One of the most powerful voices in rock & heavy metal is back...and more ferocious than ever!
Influential hard rock legend, reality TV star, Broadway alumni, horror movie director, radio host – Dee Snider, the face and voice of the legendary Twisted Sister, has a career many would kill for. And yet the singer`s thirst is far from being quenched – his thirst for METAL! Dee Snider hasinked a deal with Napalm Records for his upcoming solo album For The Love Of Metal produced by Hatebreed vocalist Jamey Jasta and featuring contributions from Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage), Mark Morton (Lamb Of God), Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Joel Grind and Nick Bellmore (Toxic Holocaust) and Charlie Bellmore (Kingdom Of Sorrow).
Snider comments about For The Love Of Metal: "This is a really incredibly exciting album that I did not expect to make, especially at this point in my life. Jamey Jasta challenged me to make a contemporary rock record. … and I rose to the challenge!“ The result is a full-on anthemic metal album indulging in modern heaviness without neglecting Snider`s Twisted Sister roots.
FIRST SINGLE AND VIDEO “ACROSS THE WATER” AVAILABLE NOW!
You may ask: what does the band name - We Sell The Dead - mean? Do they actually sell the dead? No, not literally. What they sell is more of an idea, a concept of death and the dead as being an integral part of the life of the living. All of that is packed into a riveting mix of dark and raw heavy metal that carries the catchiness of true hit material. Their sophomore album “Black Sleep” is going to be released on February 21st, 2020 via earMUSIC.
We Sell The Dead explain: “The term Black Sleep is, of course, a metaphor for death. ‘Eternal sleep’ is a somewhat more frequently used one, but we wanted an expression that sounded sinister and soft, both at the same time. Because it is a quite beautiful thing, this short life of ours. Blink and it’s over. And, most importantly, death is not the enemy. Indifference and life without meaning is. We are all going to die, eventually, all of us, sometime sooner or later. Life isn’t about sitting and waiting for that to happen, life is about taking what you’ve got and squeeze the most out of it.”
The band started in 2016 as an idea by Niclas Engelin (In Flames/Engel) and Jonas Slättung (Drömriket). They were quickly joined by their old friend Apollo Papathanasio - the frontman for Firewind and Spiritual Beggars - on vocals. Gas Lipstick, drummer for the first album and former member of HIM was replaced by Engel drummer Oscar Nilsson, due to logistical circumstances. In addition, Petter Olsson joins the band as a full-time member on keys and thereby perfectly rounds up the quintet.
“Black Sleep” is going to be released on February 21st, 2020 via earMUSIC as CD, LP and Digital.
