Lamb Of God have revealed their new video for "Set To Fail" from their fifth studio album "Wrath". The video can be viewed here.
Lamb Of God will release their fifth studio album "Wrath", on February 24th, 2009. The record will be released in North America by Epic and will be the first release with their new label Roadrunner, outside of North America. "Wrath" is produced by Josh Wilbur and was recorded in studios in New York, Virginia, and New Hampshire.
Kreator have premiered their new video "Hordes of Chaos" on MTV2. The song is the title track off the band's last album. The video can be be viewed here.
The video was shot November 2 in Berlin, Germany by director Jörn Heitmann, who filmed Kreator's "Enemy of God" and who has also worked with Rammstein. The clip depicts the band performing on a hill of bodies while "Gladiator"-style battles rage around them.
Frontman Mille Petrozza told HeadbangersBlog.com. "It's a sword and sorcery, "Conan the Barbarian," "300" kind of thing, but it's pretty brutal and I think it's fun. I really like the director and I think he did a good job. It was hard for him, but for us it was easy, because our part took only two ours. But we had to wait a lot because they had to shoot these fighting scenes the whole day. So, we worked for two hours and waited for eight."
"Slaves Of The World", the new Old Man's Child song and title track of the new album has been put online at the band's MySpace.
"Slaves Of The World" will be released in May through Century Media Records. As previously reported, the eight Old Man's Child album was recorded last fall at Studio Fredman (Gothenburg, Sweden) with Fredrik Nordström, who had previously worked with the band on their "In Defiance Of Existence" (2003) and "Vermin" (2005) albums. The nine-song album will feature Peter Wildoer (Darkane, ex-Arch Enemy, Pestilence, etc.) on drums.
Napalm Death will make their much-anticipated return to North America on April 10th headlining the Decibel Magazine and Lambgoat.com sponsored trek with Kataklysm, Toxic Holocaust, Abigail Williams, and Trap Them in the support slots.
Barney Greenway (vocals) comments: "The lineup for our North American headlining tour in April is stellar and personally I'm especially pumped to see Trap Them on the bill, as they have restored my faith in extreme music generally. Us? We'll be pushing the 'go' button again and hopefully blazing away like it's 1986 all over again - fast, faster, faster still."
Here are the dates:
4/10 Allentown, PA @ Crocodile Rock
4/11 New York, NY @ Gramercy Theater
"It is with sadness and grief that we must announce that our good friend and drummer Roger Landin have decided to leave Cloudscape. His descision to leave is personal and has nothing to do with Cloudscape and we are still the best of friends. We have recorded 3 albums that we are really proud of and we will miss Roger enormously both as a drummer, musician and as a part of Cloudscape. We have had a great time together that will never be forgotten. We'll wish all the best for Roger and his family in the future to come."
And the statement from Roger Landin:
"I have made an extremely hard decision. I´m leaving the great Cloudscape due to personal reasons. The band has been a big part of my life for many years, and it has been a wonderful ride. I will thank my great bandmates and of course all of you out there who have supported us over the years. Keep tuning in to this awesome band in the future. To my fellow comrades in the band: Best of luck!"
