GEOFF TATE Is Comforted By Fact That Future Generations Will Have Chance To Discover...

"The Metal Meltdown" recently conducted an interview with former QUEENSRŸCHE and current OPERATION: MINDCRIME singer Geoff Tate. You can now listen to the chat using the SoundCloud widget below. Asked what he would like to be remembered for in a hundred years' time, Tate responded: "Well, I think that's one of the things that's really fantastic about music — is that what you do write lives on past your own life. And that's sort of a comforting feeling for me, to know that my thoughts, my dreams, my hopes, my fears, all the things that I've thought about and wrote about in my music will be there for future generations to ponder and wonder what the hell I'm talking about. [Laughs]" OPERATION: MINDCRIME's debut album, "The Key", was released on September 18 via Frontiers Music Srl. Perhaps one of Tate's most ambitious recordings to date, "The Key" examines what one might do if they discovered "the key" to changing the way we view the world, the way we look at time, the way we travel, and could essentially change the human condition... for better or for worse. Fresh from the creative mind of Geoff Tate, "The Key" features a dozen songs and marks part one of an epic musical trilogy that initiates that very question within a web of international politics, the world economy and social ethos. Joining Tate on "The Key" are a hard-hitting cast of familiar faces and new collaborators: bass players David Ellefson (MEGADETH) and John Moyer (DISTURBED, ADRENALINE MOB), drummers Simon Wright (AC/DC), Scott Mercado (CANDLEBOX) and Brian Tichy (BILLY IDOL, OZZY OSBOURNE), guitarists Kelly Gray (QUEENSRŸCHE) and Scott Moughton (Geoff Tate's solo band), keyboardist Randy Gane (MYTH) and vocalist Mark Daly (THE VOODOOS). Tate makes one point exceptionally clear — OPERATION: MINDCRIME isn't a band, it is a musical project of like-minded people uniting to achieve a common goal. While the songwriting rests predominantly on the shoulders of Tate, Gray and Gane, it's up to every contributor to add their influence and help color the landscape. The videos for the songs "Burn" and "Re-Inventing The Future" were produced and directed by Seattle filmmaker and documentarian Jamie Burton Chamberlin (of Black Dahlia Films), who previously worked with DUFF MACKAGAN'S LOADED on "The Taking" series.


"Fish On", the new NSFW video from LINDEMANN, the project featuring vocalist Till Lindemann of German industrial metallers RAMMSTEIN and Swedish producer and multi-instrumentalist Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN), can be seen below. The song has just been released as a single, also featuring the previously unreleased track "G-Spot Michael" as well as the Drago Baotic Smooth Version of "Praise Abort". Tägtgren recently told Kaaos TV about the response to LINDEMANN's debut album, "Skills In Pills": "It's been really good. I mean, some people are, 'Ah, the lyrics are so immature.' [But] I think it's funny lyrics. me and Till are immature people. So, you know, we're just having fun with… He's discovering the English words; he's always been writing in German [with RAMMSTEIN]. And now, his crazy ideas and all the English stuff, it's like plucking the tree, he always tells me, from fruit, because the German tree is already empty for him, he said. So it's really refreshing for him to do all these things in English. I mean, so far it really went very well — Number One in a lot of countries, including Finland. So it was surprising. Some [reviews] are more, like, 'Yeah, immature guys going crazy.' But, hey, it's a party album. It's like, you know, Billy Idol in 2015 on… I don't know… speed. It's a party album. We want people to get a good feeling when we do it. It's great party music, I think. It's an album that you can get in a mood before you go to a festival, or before you go out to the bar or something, to get a good feeling." Regarding LINDEMANN's plans to perform live, Peter said: "Mainly, it is that we have to see if the promoters are interested in it, and how should we do it? Should we do it huge, or should we do it very small club punk rock? We don't know anything yet. So we're still collecting info from our promoter. He's throwing out some lines here and there to see who is interested and what can we expect, and where will we be on the bill? Will we play in the bar, or in the tent or on the main stage? We need to know these things before we start planning: 'Okay, are we gonna go crazy with the stage, or should we go very small?' It's still a little bit too early to know." He continued: "I think if it's gonna happen, it's gonna be festivals. That's what I think right now. Everything changes constantly between me and [Till]. So you never know. Maybe tomorrow we're gonna play on the moon. So, we never know. We'll find out… It's better not to say too much until we know for sure. But I hope that we're gonna go out and play." "Skills In Pills" was released on June 23 via Warner Bros.. The album was made available in the following formats: * Standard Edition (2-panel digipack, 28-page booklet) * Special Edition (Blu-ray-packaging, 28-page booklet, bonus track "That's My Heart") * Super Deluxe Edition (large-size book, hardcover, 80 pages, telescope-carton, CD+bonus track "That's My Heart") * Vinyl (gatefold sleeve, 28-page booklet, bonus track, includes album-download code) * Digital Photo courtesy of Warner Music / Tomaso Baldesarini

TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA To Release ‘Letters From The Labyrinth’ Album In November

TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, the collaboration between longtime SAVATAGE singer/songwriter Jon Oliva and producer Paul O'Neill, has become one of the most successful stories in rock 'n' roll history. Defying the odds with each project, they continue to search for new and original ideas to bring to reality no matter how difficult the challenge. The TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA saga continues this year with a new album, "Letters From The Labyrinth" — yet another endeavor in creating something different. TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA founder Paul O'Neill's inspiration for this album came out of his love for history. As collector of antiquities and historical artifacts, he explains, "Over the years I have been able to read and hold in my hands letters from people that have inspired me and left a mark on civilization. People like Mark Twain, Ben Franklin, Thomas Edison, Orville Wright — when I actually held a letter in my hand that President Lincoln wrote, it brought me into his world in a way I could never have imagined." Due on Nocember 13 via Universal Music, "Letters From The Labyrinth" finds a conceptually provocative song cycle pushing the proverbial envelope yet again — this time with what O'Neill calls TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA's "first hybrid album." The overall concept is based on TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA's "Night Castle" (2009) and a dialogue between the wisdom of the past and the hopes for the future, via a correspondence between a child and an old friend of the child's grandfather. On "Letters From The Labyrinth", TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA deals with subjects as broad as humanity's journey through the ages ("Time & Distance"), and as specific as bullying ("Not The Same"), the fall of the Berlin Wall ("Prometheus") and the world banking controversies ("Not Dead Yet"). "I love making music and I love making it relevant," O'Neill says. "I always believed the arts have a way of inspiring and uniting people. We try to maintain that tradition on the albums and all the other projects we do. I think that when everything else is falling apart, people look to the arts to help make sense of things and put the events they are experiencing into some kind of context." "Letters From The Labyrinth" track listing: 01. Time And Distance (The Dash) (O'Neill, Oliva) 02. Madness Of Men (Beethoven/O'Neill/Oliva) 03. Prometheus (Beethoven/O'Neill/Oliva) 04. Mountain Labyrinth (Borodin/O'Neill) 05. King Rurik (O'Neill/Kuprij) 06. Prince Igor (Rimsky Korsakov/Borodin/Glazunov/O'Neill/Oliva ) 07. The Night Conceives (O'Neill/Oliva) 08. Forget About The Blame (J Green) 09. Not Dead Yet (O'Neill/Oliva) 10. Past Tomorrow (O'Neill/Oliva) 11. Stay (O'Neill) 12. Not The Same (O'Neill/O'Neill) 13. Who I Am (O'Neill) 14. Lullaby Night (Bach/O'Neill) Bonus track: 15. Forget About The Blame (featuring Lzzy Hale) (J Green) tsoletterscd

Austin City Limits Was The Perfect End To This Year’s Epic Festival Season

As many of you know, festival season is an extremely subjective time period. It arguably begins with Coachella in April and ends sometime in the months of September/October. Festivals outside that range abound, what with Halloween, Valentine’s Day, March Madness, New Year’s, and Thursdays, but the wonder of “festival season” is the type of people […]
