The video for "If I Were King," the first single from Queensrÿche's highly anticipated new album "American Soldier", has received a worldwide debut on Monday, March 23 at Noon ET on Military.com, home of the largest military and veteran membership organization. The military community site, 10 million members strong, will also feature a podcast interview with lead singer Geoff Tate as well as an op-ed column that he wrote exclusively for the site.
The video can be viewed here.
The video for "If I Were King" was directed by J. Andrew Colletti and Jonathan Williams and addresses the same themes of loss and healing that are the focus of the track. The song was written based on an interview Tate conducted with Sean Lenahan, a veteran of U.S. conflicts in Somalia and Kosovo.
"Aggression Schedule", a new song from German metallers Disbelief, is available for streaming on Massacre Records' MySpace page.
"Aggression Schedule" comes off the band's forthcoming album, entitled "Protected Hell" cover artwork], which is scheduled for release on April 17 via Massacre Records. The album was recorded at MX studio in Buchen, Germany with producer Michael Mainx.
"After 10 years as the band's drummer, Jarmo Juurikka has decided to leave the group due to personal reasons. There is no grudge between him and the other members. Glora Morti is now in progress of finding a new drummer.
There has been very few updates conserning the upcoming album and we apologize for this. Things may look quiet but even as we speak, Räihä's kettles are boiling with some really nasty shit, and unnerving shrieks and wails are carrying out of his guitarcabinet. Expect the very worst humanity has to offer."
In February, bassist Aki Salonen (Neverend) joined the band as a full-time member. A comment from the band read as follows: "He has been working as a session bass player at our shows for few years now, and we felt that the time was ripe to ask him join us. During these years, Aki has proved himself to be a skilled and dedicated musician."
On his MySpace page Devin Townsend (ex-Strapping Young Lad, ex-Devin Townsend Band) published a brief interview announcing a new solo album, "Ki".
Townsend commented: "Ki" is the first of 4 albums in a series of albums under the moniker 'Devin Townsend Project.' Each album is essentially a different "band" (or collection of session musicians) playing my music. They were chosen based on what the theme of the album is, and the vibe that the album is trying to project. The album "Ki" is very specific in this quartet of albums in that it controls its anger throughout the album barring one song (Heaven Send), and really is an exercise in having little to prove."
