Trivium and 5B Artist Management have partnered with Cooking Vinyl to re-release the band’s 2003 debut album, Ember to Inferno, along with a deluxe edition that includes 13 additional tracks that have never been available yet have earned evasive legend status among diehard fans, on Dec. 2.

“The purpose of this release is to show the very early beginnings of Trivium—perhaps an era unbeknownst to most listeners of the band,” said Trivium vocalist and guitarist Matt Heafy. “To look back at Ember as the starting point of Trivium becoming recognized worldwide is a staggering thought for me, considering I was 16/17 years old during the writing and recording of the record.

Another year has come and gone, and in my opinion, 2015 was one of the strongest in recent memory in terms of quality hard rock and metal releases. My top 10 list includes bands on the rise, veteran acts reinventing themselves and a farewell to one of the most iconic figures in rock ‘n’ roll. I don’t expect everyone to agree with my picks, but you don’t have to. It’s my list, not yours. (more…)

Wilson

Wilson

A debut album titled Full Blast Fuckery is bound to turn some heads. But on its second release, Right to Rise (Razor & Tie, June 29, 2015), Wilson has taken more of a let-the-music-do-the-talking approach, with a greater emphasis on melody and songs that tell their story in their hometown of Detroit, Michigan.

Wilson is spending the late summer and early fall on the hardDrive Live Tour, reaching wider audiences as it opens for Trivium and Tremonti. When the tour came to the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey, Live Metal’s Greg Maki sat down outside the venue (with the soothing sounds of Tremonti soundchecking in the background) with frontman Chad Nicefield and guitarist Kyle Landry to discuss the new record, Detroit and more.

Me? I take a break from my day job to cover four concerts in five days, in two states and the District of Columbia. (more…)
