THRASHIST REGIME ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM, CARNIVAL OF MONSTERS
Anonymous writes "
Scottish speed merchants THRASHIST REGIME are excited to announce the forthcoming release of their second full-length album, CARNIVAL OF MONSTERS through independent label FAT HIPPY RECORDS. Following up 2012's well-received debut album FEARFUL SYMMETRY ("A bloody good thrash metal record" - PowerPlay magazine, "well-written and memorable songs" - Terrorizer), CARNIVAL OF MONSTERS sees the band's songwriting kicked-up a notch, with longer, more intricate songs that are both heavier and more melodic than anything the band have come up with before whilst still maintaining their focus on blistering thrash. Notable for their entertaining subject matter, THRASHIST once again hit the mark with songs about topics such as ants attacking the Antarctic, THE A-TEAM, computer games X-COM: ENEMY UNKNOWN and SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS as well as a self-penned single-song thrash-opera about an alternate reality in which Dolph Lundgren attempts to take over the world with a gigantic mechanoid war-machine (obviously!).
Featuring striking artwork from renowned polymath Dan Goldsworthy (HELL, CRADLE OF FILTH, ACCEPT), the album took two years to record, with Goldsworthy also helming the recording sessions at his custom studio in Aberdeenshire. "We had some health issues within the band that meant there was a significant delay in getting the album out there," explains frontman JOE JOHNSTON. "But it's definitely worth the wait. It's got a more natural sound than Fearful Symmetry, and we've definitely come on as songwriters too. There's a real mix of short, sharp, fast songs and longer, more complex stuff with some big, epic moments. And also lots of songs about monsters of one kind or another, hence the title."
CARNIVAL OF MONSTERS is released on CD on 28th April and will be available digitally from 30th April via Amazon, iTunes, Spotify, etc. The CD edition, featuring various pieces of exclusive artwork and limited to 100 hand-numbered copies, will be available via Amazon and www.fathippyrecords.co.uk. A launch gig/release party will be held on 28th April at CAPTAIN TOM'S studios in Aberdeen, the band's hometown, ahead of their appearance at Scottish metal festival FULL METAL HAGGIS at the end of May.

GENE SIMMONS OF KISS DIVES INTO DETAILS OF NEW “KISSINO” AS WELL AS ROCK & BREW LOCATIONS
Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of KISS have teamed up with Kaw Nation to ready a KISS Casino and Rock 'N' Roll Resort in Oklahoma. Founding KISS members seek to bring an “All-Thrill Rock ‘N’ Roll” ambiance to the new casino and resort, located near the Kansas state line, including a hands-on approach to the design and feel directly from Gene and Paul.
Certainly not a new venture for the legendary rockers and business moguls, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley have worked together over the years, developing a dozen restaurant locations throughout the United States and Mexico with their Rock & Brews Restaurants. Bringing the dining and entertainment concept to the rock nation while offering affordable, American-faire food, the KISS members look to expand the Rock & Brews brand with its first major entry into the casino realm. Back in 2013, Gene’s first taste into the casino market was in the form of a KISS-themed slot machine that has since made its way into gambling floors across the country as well as an interactive free version released for online play.
Gene Simmons of KISS will be providing full, visual details of what is to be expected with their new venture on video podcast, The SDR Show this Monday, January 9th at 9:00 PM (EST), found online at TheSDRShow.com/Live. Hosted by nationally syndicated rock radio host, Ralph Sutton and comedian Zac Amico, the full audio version of the conversation will be available on Spotify and iTunes this Friday morning, January 13th.
As America’s #1 Gold Record Award winning group of all time, and that’s in every category, KISS can easily be named one of rock’s most influential bands. The Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Famers have released 44 albums and sold more than 100 million albums worldwide. Honored by their peers, KISS received the illustrious ASCAP Founders Award in 2015.
Rock & Brews is an energized dining and entertainment concept offering affordable, high quality American comfort food and a broad selection of international and craft brews, while immersing guests in a family-friendly rock ‘n’ roll experience unlike any other. Where the unifying force of rock ‘n’ roll meets the burgeoning craft beer culture, Rock & Brews is born.
The SDR Show (Sex, Drugs, & Rock-n-Roll Show) with comedian Big Jay Oakerson and radio host Ralph Sutton is live every Monday night at 9:00 PM (EST) and interviews rock stars, pornstars, comedians, and entertainment celebrities!
