Avenged Sevenfold 今早發表聲明,表示已與鼓手 Arin IIejay 分道揚鑣。全文如下。

「大家好,我們將會在未來日子繼續前進,但不包括鼓手Arin IIejay。Arin過去的4年一直是個積極和出色的鼓手為我們在。我們很愛他,亦將永遠感激他在A7X的黑暗時期協助我們渡過難關。可是在創作意念方面,我們與Arin有著不同的方向,這個時候亦不能透露更多。我們很後期待與世界各地的樂迷分享我們的未來大計。再次我們感謝您的理解和支持。

Matt, Zack, Brian, Johnny」

Avenged Sevenfold released a statement this morning regarding drummer Arin IIejay’s departure.

“Hello Everyone –

We are writing this to inform you all that we will be moving forward without Arin IIejay as our drummer. Arin has been nothing but a positive energy and monster drummer for us over the past 4 years. We love the guy and always will. We are and will always be grateful to him for helping us to move forward through some very dark times. Creatively though, we felt we needed to move in a different direction. While we can’t say more at this time, we are excited for the future and looking forward to sharing our plans soon with the greatest fans in the world. As always we appreciate your understanding and unwavering support.

With Love –
Matt, Zack, Brian, Johnny”

[NEWS] Evanescence Is Back

Evanescence 將在十一月在日本 Ozzfest Japan 表演後作短暫北美巡演,意味樂團正式結束三年的靜止期。這幾年各成員並沒有停下來,像女主將 Amy Lee 就推出了個人專輯,更誕下可愛的小男孩。

Evanescence will be on brief tour in North America again this November after their appearance in Ozzfest Japan in the same month, which is kind of a sign of breaking their 3-year hiatus. During this period, frontwoman Amy Lee has released a solo album and also become the mother of a beautiful baby boy.

[NEWS] Bring Me The Horizon’s Celebration of Depression + New Video “Throne” // BMTH 抑鬱的歌頌+新視頻 Throne

最近好像隔天就有 Bring Me The Horizon 的新消息。繼主將 Oli Sykes 宣布結婚、發佈新曲The Happy Song、簽約大音樂廠牌Columbia Records 後,BMTH 公佈新專輯名稱為 That’s The Spirit。Oli跟 NME 說道:「這是一個對抑鬱的歌頌——使它展露光芒。當人們説『That’s The Spirit』,其實只是在沒有任何正面希望時才強找來的答案。」樂團兩天後發佈新視頻 Throne。小編覺得有點像金屬核版本的Linkin Park,你又會否給予正評?

Recently there’s exciting news from Bring Me The Horizon every week – frontman Oli Sykes getting married, revealing new song “The Happy Song,” signing to Columbia Records – and now reveals the title of their upcoming album as “That’s The Spirit”. Sykes talked to NME “It’s a celebration of depression. A way of making light of it. That’s The Spirit–it’s quite a depressing phrase when you think about it–the sort of thing you only ever use when you know there’s no positive answer to the situation.”

Two days after, the band released brand new video “Throne”! We feel like it’s a metalcore version Linkin Park, what do you think?

[NEWS] Lamb of God ft. Chino Moreno (Deftones) – Embers

Lamb of God 在過去一個月不斷上載即將推出的新專輯VII: Sturm and Drang內的新曲。到目前為止,樂隊並沒有令我們失望,無論是他們招牌式的金屬咆哮歌曲或新鮮的 clean vocal,均令我們團隊一聴再聴。樂團在這首新歌 Ember更邀得 Deftones 主唱 Chino Moreno 一同參與,是一個非常不錯的合作。

Lamb of God continues to share new songs with their fans off their upcoming album, “VII: Sturm and Drang”. So far the band didn’t failed us at all, no matter it’s their signature growling metal songs or the refreshing clean vocals. In this new song “Embers”, LOG gets Deftones’ frontman Chino Moreno in for a distinctive twist.

[FLASHBACK] Placebo – English Summer Rain

嘗試用英倫經典把本週的陰暗雨天浪漫化—— English Summer Rain 是 Placebo 2004年出版的專輯Sleeping with Ghosts中第四張單曲,更被CMJ音樂專題中形容為「以穩步旋律把誘惑包裝起來」。

Trying to romanticize this week’s gloomy weather with “English Summer Rain” – The song is the 4th single from Placebo’s 2004 album Sleeping with Ghosts. CMJ described it as “encapsulates seduction in its steady, determined melody”.
