German power metal icons, GAMMA RAY, are pleased to unleash their long-anticipated new full-length, Empire Of The Undead, set for release this Spring.

A record that almost wasn’t, Empire Of The Undead was composed throughout 2013 with Eike Freese (Dark Age) at the mixing desk alongside bassist/co-writer, Dirk Schlächter, and was nearing completion before Hammer Studios, their home, rehearsal space, and meeting point for many metal bands throughout Germany, had burned down leaving much of its contents in ruins. Fortunately, the Empire Of The Undead masters managed to make it through unscathed. “If this could not stop us, nothing ever will,” joked light-hearted GAMMA RAY vocalist Kai Hansen, adding that, “We got rid of a lot of shit that we gathered there. Unfortunately, a lot of good equipment as well. Anyhow, we look towards the future, we saved the production and we can continue now in this new place.”

Empire Of The Undead will be released in North America on CD, LP and digitally via Armoury Records in conjunction with earMusic on April 15, 2014.

AmbPirate chats with Orgy @ Assembly Sacramento 11/30/13

Orgy is an American synthrock band formed in 1994, from Los Angeles, California. Orgy described their music as “death pop”.

Orgy was formed in 1994 by vocalist Jay Gordon and guitarist Amir Derakh and Ryan Shuck. Bassist Paige Haley, and drummer Bobby Hewitt soon completed the line-up. Derakh had previously gained some fame in the 1980s metal band Rough Cutt, and Hewitt was a former member of Electric Love Hogs. Gordon and Derakh were also experienced producers, having produced Coal Chamber's self-titled CD.

Within six months Jonathan Davis, who performed with Shuck in Sexart, signed Orgy to Korn's label Elementree Records.


Get ready to fire one up to the soothing torrent of “Shatter Their Bongs,” packing a bong-bastic surge of lung-blackening auditory intoxication from red-eyed riffmanglers,CANNABIS CORPSE. Harvested from their impending Splatterhash split with GHOUL, the second of CC’s two tracks on their contribution of the co-release, “Shatter Their Bongs” is the first from the band to showcase the lungpower of bassist Land Phil (Iron Reagan, Municipal Waste)

ELUVEITIE Parting Ways With Longtime Violinist MERI TADIC

ELUVEITIE will amicably part ways with longtime violinist Meri Tadic at the end of 2013. The "Eluveitie & Friends III" festival, which will take place on December 28 in Frauenfeld, Switzerland, will mark her final appearance with the Swiss folk metal act.

States the band: “‘There is an end to all things’ is a saying. Nevertheless, having to say goodbye is never easy.

"Meri has been an important part of ELUVEITIE for 11 years; we have played hundreds of shows around the globe together!

"We will miss Meri, but foremost we want to say: Thank you for 11 years spent together!

"Every ending means a new start and a new chance.

"We are looking forward to working with Meri's successor very much and to have new musical influences this way.

"We are in the midst of a creative working progress for our new album. In this sense, this means: Excitement and creative mode: ON!"

Adds Meri: “After 11 years of ELUVEITIE, I have decided to go a new way and leave the band.

"I have lived a wonderful and unique time with this band. On stage and during our countless journeys, there have been difficult, demanding times as well.

"My decision has nothing to do with IRIJ and the album I released in January.

"Many of you know that IRIJ was founded years ago but that it never had any influence on the band. Also, my album release has nothing to do with the time of my departure. This really is a coincidence. Still, I will be working with all my strength to move forward musically, and thus I now focus on the new output, the first live shows, rehearsals, new influences and possibilities.

"It is not easy to find the right words.

"The past 11 years have been a magical time; through and through and I have lived and enjoyed them with all my heart.

"A part of me will surely keep on living within ELUVEITIE, ‘cause this has never been just a band but lifeblood to me. Therefore, I want to thank all of our wonderful fans around the world at first. You have been a most priceless enrichment to my life and I will always think back happily to the times we have been through and to all the passion I have seen burning in your eyes, fists and faces! Thanks for celebrating us every single night! Without you, we would never been around!!!

"My brothers and sister ChrigelAnnaIvoPädeKay and Rafi I wish the best of luck, success and joy on the ongoing way. I will miss your pretty ‘flutfaces’ and hope you will behave yourselves out there. All that we have lived through together will never be forgotten and I am proud to see how much we achieved together. Make me proud and rock the world, my dear friends. Hope to see some of you on tour again. Sometime, somewhere…

"To conclude this statement, I would like to quote one of the best metal bands of all time, without whom I might never have started to play the fiddle in a death metal band. ‘We are blind to the world within us, waiting to be born!

"Cheers to all, let’s not be sad, but by joyfull!!!
