Have you been waiting for years to hear new material by this crazy band called "System of a Down"? Well you must be happy!

In a recent interview band's bassist Shavo Odadjian was asked if there is any chance for System of a Down to release new material in 2015.

"Yeah, there's a very good chance. I don't have a date. We've already gone. We've written some songs. We're keeping it to ourselves. We're getting back to the bullshit of being together", was his response.

This statement has done many fans happy and excited to hear something new by their favorite group.

The band have a string of tour dates lined up for the spring so we just wait to see them on stage to see if they can still perform so great as they used to do. We are sure that all are looking forward to hear some new material after all those years "on ice".

Arjen Anthony Lucassen with the ball again. His new project named "The Gentle Storm", which was released on March 23 , in collaboration with Anneke van Giersbergen is simply a masterpiece .

Wonderful compositions by him and enchanting lyrics and Interpretation by Anneke. This is  a theme album. The story is about love between two people in Amsterdam in 1700 and the exchange of letters between them. The story unfolds beautifully through the 11 songs of the cd.

In the package you will find the 11 songs executed in two ways, in 2 CDs. A more 'wild ' disposal (Storm version) and the other in soft melodies (Gentle version) which will leave you with a smile of satisfaction while listening!

Machine Head's Entire 'Bloodstone & Diamonds' Album Available For Streaming

"Bloodstone & Diamonds", the new album from San Francisco Bay area metallers Machine Head, can be streamed in its entirety below.

Due on November 10 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment, the CD was produced by Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn and Juan Urteaga, and like the last seven of eight Machine Head albums, was masterfully mixed by Colin Richardson. Additional tracking, editing, and mixing was done with Andy Sneap and Steve Lagudi.

Regarding the musical direction of "Bloodstone & Diamonds", Flynn told Metal Hammer magazine: "There's definitely a lot of urgency on this record. It's a really heavy record arid there's a dark and evil vibe to a lot of it, but I feel like there's more of a rock vibe in there too. It's stripped down at times, and I like that. I think that sense of urgency has carried over from the demos we did, which were all done very quickly and spontaneously. We tried to keep that spontaneous vibe on the album."


"Bloodstone & Diamonds" track listing:

01. Now We Die
02. Killers & Kings
03. Ghosts Will Haunt My Bones
04. Night Of Long Knives
05. Sail Into The Black
06. Eyes Of The Dead
07. Beneath The Silt
08. In Comes The Flood
09. Damage Inside
10. Game Over
11. Imaginal Cells (instrumental)
12. Take Me Through The Fire

Anabioz - There The Sun Falls (2014)

After their debut album back in 2006 (Through darkness) and their second album in 2010 (To light) the folk metal band from Russia released this year their third album.

"There the sun falls" is the name of this album and this is a very good effort. Possible guitars with wonderful folk elements (violin simply enchants) dress to the songs and the stunning adaptation of the traditional Irish song “The maid that sold her barley”.

Hardly any song stands a bit but if you are going to say that s song is a little bit better than the others , we would say the “Dance, Dance”. An excellent proposal from Russia !!

80/100

Band:

Olga "Helga" - vocal, violin

Anton "JaZzZ" - vocal, guitar

Damir "Mystic" - guitar

Alexey "Alexis" – bass
