LiveThirty years ago this lineup stormed across the U.S. like a Blizzard, leaving audiences in complete awe! This live LP showcases the power and intensity of an Ozzy Osbourne performance from 1981, with legendary guitarist Randy Rhoads at his side and the solid rhythm section of Tommy Aldridge (drums) and Rudy Sarzo (bass).
Though many bands have succeeded in earning the hatred of parents and media worldwide throughout the past few decades, arguably only such acts as Alice Cooper, Judas Priest, and Marilyn Manson have tied the controversial record of Ozzy Osbourne.
The former Black Sabbath frontman has been ridiculed over his career, mostly due to rumors denouncing him as a psychopath and Satanist. Despite his outlandish reputation, however, one cannot deny that Osbourne has had an immeasurable effect on heavy metal.1. I Don't Know

A hard-hitting, multifaceted, female-fronted
metal outfit from Los Angeles, California,
Otep got their start in late 2000, when singer/band
namesake Otep Shamaya brought her Marilyn Manson-meets-Kim Gordon style of
singing to a crew of musicians known only as Rob, Moke, and eViL j. The foursome
began gigging around Los Angeles and scored a deal with Capitol solely on the
strength of their live show (they'd not yet recorded a demo), releasing the Jihad EP the
following year. Rumors of cannibalism and dabbling in the mystical arts helped add to
their mysterious image, and they found themselves receiving nods of approval from the
likes of Ozzy Osbourne and Marilyn Manson himself for their antics.
In 2004 the group released its sophomore effort, House of Secrets, which introduced
elements of funk, hip-hop, and ambient into the group's melting pot of metal. Working
with producer Dave Fortman (Evanescence, Mudvayne), Otep followed up three years
later with Ascension and supported it on spring 2007 dates with Static-X.
In 2016 the band released their seventh studio album "Generation Doom" and continue

The Apothic GloomSKELETONWITCH are "a band that makes metal so brilliant, vital and special" (Metal Hammer). Relinquishing genre-boundaries with their mixture of blackened thrash, death and heavy metal, the band are a force to be reckoned with as they have incessantly spent the past ten years touring across the world while simultaneously releasing the most zealous, catchy riffs and precisely pummeling rhythms across five full-length releases with Prosthetic Records, including their most recent 2013 effort "Serpents Unleashed", which saw the band land at their highest chart position, #62 of Billboard's Top 200.
SKELETONWITCH have cemented the group's reputation as one of metal's most important acts landing themselves on high visibility tours with the likes of Danzig, Ozzy Osbourne's Ozzfest, Arch Enemy, Children of Bodom, Cannibal Corpse, Amon Amarth, Ghost B.C., and The Black Dahlia Murder and extensive headlining jaunts, including a 63 shows in 65 days run.
The band present a reenergized power with the new year as they announce new vocalist Adam Clemans (Wolvhammer) to the current line-up consisting of Evan Linger (bass), Dustin Boltjes (drums) and founding members Scott Hedrick and Nate Garnette on guitars. SKELETONWITCH debuted the first new material from their recording session at Baltimore, MD's Developing Nations with Kevin Bernsten (Noisem, Mutilation Rites) with the 7 single "Well of Despair" which they debuted live while being featured on this year's Decibel Magazine tour alongside Abbath, High on Fire and Tribulation. The single will be featured on their forthcoming EP, "The Apothic Gloom".
Scheduled for release via Prosthetic, "The Apothic Gloom" showcases four tracks spanning just under 20 minutes of what Noisey hails as a "cold blast of icy, melodic black metal" with "plenty of shredding". #WorshipTheWitch1. The Apothic Gloom

Jericho SirensAfter a 14-year hiatus from the studio, Hot Snakes have
triumphantly kicked down the door back into our lives with their
new album, Jericho Sirens. And amid the mania of non-stop
political rhetoric, doom-and-gloom prognostications and
omnipresent technology, it's not a moment too soon.
Hot Snakes formed in 2000, after the release of their first
record, Automatic Midnight. They were John Reis, Jason
Kourkounis, Rick Froberg and Gar Wood. The band's sound
represented a return to the unrealized past of its members. This
time, their musics would be direct, undraped and rock 'n' roll
while still maintaining the dense and turbulent character of the
members' previous work. That year, Hot Snakes found their live
sound and established themselves as primo, down-stroke
warlords. They followed with a pair of great albums - 2002's
Suicide Invoice, with drummer Jason Kourkounis, and 2004's
Audit in Progress, with Mario Rubalcaba on drums - that
broadened the band's sound while pleasing many a fan.
However, the band eventually spiraled downward into a mid-life
punk crisis, and by 2005 they had stopped performing.
BUT! 2011 saw the return of Hot Snakes, with a string of festival
shows. Both drummers performed with the band on the songs
which they recorded, and the group discussed writing new
material. After an additional 6 years of discussions, Hot Snakes
returned to the studio in 2017 to commence recording, and the
results are, finally, revealed in Jericho Sirens.
Musically, Jericho Sirens incorporates the most extreme fringes
of the Hot Snakes sound (the vein-bulging, 78-second "Why
Don't It Sink In?" the pounding downstrokes of "Having
Another?"), while staying true to longstanding influences such as
the Wipers, Dead Moon and Suicide on propulsive tracks such as
"Six Wave Hold-Down," one of the first written for the project
during a New Year's Eve 2017 session in Philadelphia. Other
moments like the choruses of "Jericho Sirens" and "Psychoactive"
nod to classic-rock titans such as AC/DC and Ozzy
Osbourne, with Froberg admitting, "I'm as much a hesher as I
am anything else, that's for sure." For Reis, reactivating his
creative partnership with Froberg was one of the most rewarding
aspects of the process: "Our perspectives are similar. Our tastes
are similar. We work really well together. And what more is there
to say? Rick totally outdid himself on this record, vocally and
Jericho Sirens was recorded in short bursts over the past year in
Philadelphia and San Diego, with assistance from longtime
bassist Gar Wood. Kourkounis and Rubalcaba, both of whom
drummed on prior Hot Snakes releases but never on the same
one, contributed throughout.1. I Need a Doctor

A Place Where There's No More PainLife Of Agony emerged from the New York music scene in the early ‚90s with one of the most distinctive
sounds in its genre. Best known for its 1993 metal/crossover debut River Runs Red, the band instantly
built a die-hard, cult following. For over two decades, the group toured relentlessly all over the world,
sharing stages with the biggest names in rock, including Metallica, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Foo
Fighters, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. After the much-praised Ugly (1995), LOA opted for a highly
energetic alternative rock approach on Soul Searching Sun (1997) and Broken Valley (2005) - the latter
produced by Greg Fidelman (Slipknot, Metallica). Life of Agony has sold over one million albums to date.
In 2016, LOA signed a deal with Napalm Records to record the group's 5th studio album, titled A Place
Where There's No More Pain. Rolling Stone hailed it as „One of the Most Anticipated Albums of the Year".
The album is produced by Matt Brown & Life Of Agony and mastered by Ted Jensen (Alice in Chains,
Machine Head, Deftones). The drive and intensity these ten blistering new tracks possess, surpass all
expectations that built up in the past 12 years - a cathartic Sturm & Drang experience for the listener that
matches the ferocity of River Runs Red with gut wrenching rock melodies. Raging guitar riffs, heartfelt
lyrics and killer grooves mark the return of LOA's signature sound and turn A Place Where There's No
More Pain into a passionate, soul-searching affair.
The highly emotional lyrics by singer Mina Caputo link all songs by the four-piece together, then and
now: born as Keith Caputo, she had her Transgender coming out in 2011, changed her name, but kept
her inimitable style of writing deeply from the heart. „And I just want to disappear and hide," she sings
and shines a light on the path of all lost souls - while steadily walking her own. „Many of our fans have
told us over the years that sharing our personal struggles has been cathartic for them in healing the pain
in their own lives. That uplifting energy we share at the shows, gives us hope that there's light at the end
of the tunnel. And for us and hopefully our fans, that short time when we're all together is a place where
there's no more pain."1. Meet My Maker

Never Say Die!Never Say Die! is the eighth studio album by British heavy metal band Black Sabbath, released in September 1978. It was the final Black Sabbath studio album to feature vocalist Ozzy Osbourne prior to his departure from the band in 1979.
At the time of the recording of Never Say Die! the members of Black Sabbath were all heavily involved in drug and alcohol abuse. Prior to the recording of the album, vocalist Osbourne quit the band and was briefly replaced by former Savoy Brown and Fleetwood Mac vocalist Dave Walker. Some songs were written with Walker, and the new group even performed an early version of Junior's Eyes with different lyrics on the BBC programme, Look Hear. Osbourne eventually rejoined the band, refusing to sing any of the songs written with Walker. These particular songs were rewritten, including Junior's Eyes, rewritten to be about the then-recent death of Osbourne's father.
We had a few internal problems, Osbourne admitted to Sounds. My father was dying, so that put us out for over three months with the funeral and everything. I left the band for three months before we got back together to record it.
The album was recorded at Sounds Interchange Studios in Toronto. We went to Toronto to record it, and that's when the problems started said Tony Iommi. Why Toronto? Because of the tax, really. The studio was booked through brochures because people thought it might be a good one. We got there and it had a dead sound - totally wrong. We couldn't get a real live sound. So what we had to do was rip the carpet up and try to make it as live as we could. They were okay about it, but it took time to get it exactly right. There were no other studios available. Closing track Swinging The Chain features lead vocals from drummer Bill Ward, necessitated by Osbourne's frequent absences from the studio and inability to perform due to substance abuse.
It's a combination of what we've all been through in the last ten years, said Osbourne. It's a very varied album. Like, we started out playing in blues clubs, because British blues - like John Mayall and early Fleetwood Mac - was the thing at the time. We were into a twelve-bar trip and early Ten Years After-style stuff. So it's part of that sort of trip. Then there's the heavy thing and the rock thing. It's not just steamhammer headbanging stuff all the way through We got rid of all our inner frustrations: what each of us individually wanted to put down over the years but couldn't because of the pressures of work. So we put a lot of painstaking hours into developing this album.1. Never Say Die
