Death to All celebrate 30 years of “Individual Thought Patterns” with a North American Tour!

The super-project/Death tribute band, feat. Gene Hoglan, Steve Di Giorgio, Bobby Koelble, Max Phelps - are currently touring in North America, in celebration of “Individual Thought Patterns”. See the show dates in the flyer. 

Recently the band shared on its Facebook page:
“Death to All embarks today on a North American tour celebrating 30 years of Death’s iconic album Individual Thought Patterns, along with other classics. Featuring original members Gene Hoglan (Dark Angel, Dethklok), Steve DiGiorgio (Testament, Sadus), and Bobby Koelble (Death, The Jazz Professors), along with Max Phelps (Cynic, Exist), Death To All is a celebration of Chuck Schuldiner’s life and legacy, along with all things DEATH!”

“Individual Thought Patterns” is the fifth studio album by DEATH, released on June 22, 1993, by Relativity Records.


Founded in 1984 by Chuck Schuldiner under the original name of Mantas in Altamonte Springs, Florida, Death was among the more widely known early pioneers of the death metal sound, along with California’s Possessed. Inspired by Nasty Savage, Death was among the first bands in the Florida death metal scene. In the late 80s, the band was both a part of and integral in defining the death metal scene which gained international recognition with the release of albums by a number of area acts.

Death to All operates as a tribute band to the original Death, which dissolved in 2001 following the passing of the group’s founder and frontman Chuck Schuldiner. The backbone of Death to All is singer/guitarist Max Phelps (Obscura, ex-Cynic), drummer Gene Hoglan (Dark Angel, Testament), bass beast Steve DiGiogio (Testament, Sadus) and Bobby Koelble (Death). Death to All is a unique opportunity for a new generation of metalheads to experience the genius of Death and Chuck Schuldiner first-hand.

Greek band Spiral Meth presents the new single “I Mermaid” from the album “Blues For The Superhuman”, which single is accompanied by a music video.

Spiral Meth is an Athens’ based alternative metal act, known for the extraordinary way they cut straight through, to the core of the listeners' emotions. For fans of Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Tool, Gojira, Deftones,they are an ear candy. A decade ago, Spiral Meth guitarist songwriter and founding member, Stavros Papadakis, was soon joined by bass player Tassos Kakoyiannis and lead singer Kostas Exarchos. After years of experimentation, rehearsing, composing, gigging and endless drummer issues at hand, one November afternoon two years ago , a new drummer named Periklis Roussis walked in. An impromptu jam followed. And it was breathtaking. A couple of hours later he joined the band and the puzzle was complete. Those struggling years of seeking for the missing element were long gone. A new era of musical partnership arose. They commence practicing, arranging, performing and finally recording their debut full length album titled ‘’Blues For The Superhuman” which was released on April of 2022. Spiral Meth are: Stavros Papadakis– guitars, Konstantinos Exarchos– lead vocals, Tassos Kakoyiannis– bass, backing vocals, Periklis Roussis– drums, percussions 

The single “I Mermaid” is included in the album (“Blues For The Superhuman”). 



South Africa-German outfit Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys release 'Heaving', title track of coming fourth album.

Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys present 'Heaving', the title track and third single from their forthcoming 'Heaving' album, following the recently-released lead tracks 'Burning Building' and 'Stereoscope'. The full-length album will be released in spring 2023 via Unique Records, a division of Schubert Music Europe.

Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys are an art pop ambient noise band whose music is full of atmosphere and intensity. Based in Berlin, the group is fronted by South African-born Lucy Kruger. To encounter her music is to witness a singular journey of constant reflection that produces an ever-widening arc of creativity. This burning psychedelic folk is both intimate and energetic.

The song, which opens with a self-possessed pulse and a vocal sample that sits somewhere between a release and a reaching, pulls the listener into a distinct and surreal space - one that is both existential and immediate. There is a physicality to the sound that grounds the more elusive threads, in both sound and subject matter.

The accompanying film was created by Belgian director and motion designer Lena Nerinckx (the co-founder of Contour Collective) , and features Lucy Kruger and Lenny-Dee Doucha. Lena (who studied at both LUCA School Of Arts and Thomas More) uses film as a medium to translate thoughts and feelings into curving realms and surrealistic worlds through a focus on body language. A returning subject in her visual work is how emotions influence reality.
This piece is an intimate and intense duet between Lucy and an unknown but deeply present subject, seen and felt through a pair of hands. There is both effort and inevitability in the act of heaving and in this work. The body - both primal and performative - moves and is moved through a tender and quietly chaotic choreography. It opens its mouth and oozes. The distinction or boundary between the inside and the outside is blurred. It is both humanising and unsettling. The figure in motion, close up and dripping, becomes more landscape than limb. The video, filmed on Super 8 Reversal Film using a Canon Auto Zoom 814 camera, is beautifully stark - a visceral and compellingly uncomfortable exploration of intimacy.

In April 2022, the band released their third album in the 'Tapes Trilogy', signifying a relinquishing of control throughout the course of the three records in terms of both the sonic landscape and the stories brought to life through the lyrics. This song cycle began in 2019 with the band's debut album ‘Sleeping Tapes for Some Girls', followed by ‘Transit Tapes (for women who move furniture around)' in 2021 and the final 'Teen Tapes (for performing your own stunts)' in 2022.

As of February 16, the 'Heaving' single is available from fine music platforms, including SpotifyApple Music and Bandcamp. The full 'Heaving' LP, which is out on April 7, is now available for pre-order.

The band, who have earned a reputation for their engaging and intense live performances, will be touring the album in Europe from April this year. They will play their album release show at Berlin's Lido on May 5. Concert tickets can be obtained at

Gary Rossington, the original guitarist of Lynyrd Skynyrd and founding member of the legendary southern rock band, has passed away at the age of 71. No cause of death was given for Rossington, who died on Sunday, nearly four months before Lynyrd Skynyrd was set to embark on their next tour. Rossington had had heart problems for years, including a heart attack in 2015 and emergency heart surgery in 2021. 

In an official statement, Lynyrd Skynyrd wrote: “It is with our deepest sympathy and sadness that we have to advise, that we lost our brother, friend, family member, songwriter and guitarist, Gary Rossington, today. Gary is now with his Skynyrd brothers and family in heaven and playing it pretty, like he always does".

Rest in peace Mr. Rossington.
