Nearly two years ago, Mastodon invaded London's O2 Academy to finish off a world tour. The band's sold-out performance lured in a great mass of metal fans, who erupted for the Southern metallers from beginning to end. Thankfully, those unable to attend will be able to experience the show this holiday season, as Mastodon will unveil the audio and video editions of the gig digitally on Dec. 10.
There's been a mysterious and exciting vibe revolving around the new project launched by Soulfly's Max Cavalera, the Dillinger Escape Plan's Greg Puciato, Mastodon's Troy Sanders and former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch. The new band has been dubbed Killer Be Killed, and the group have finally released some juicy details on their 2014 debut album.
Ihsahn is one of extreme metal’s most revered and complete musicians. His work with Emperor speaks for itself, but one aspect many don’t account for is Ihsahn’s age when he released those four game-changing albums. In 2001, he folded Emperor in order to focus on other projects like Peccatum. Following Peccatum’s demise, he ventured into solo territory with his first album ‘The Adversary’ in 2006. The solo outfit Ihsahn is a blend of progressive metal with some black metal elements retained. ‘Das Seelenbrechen’ is the fifth studio album from the mastermind and is by far his most expansive work to date.
