CORRODED have released a brand new video and single, ‘Burn‘, taken from their upcoming ‘Bitter’ album.

The band’s previous release, ‘Defcon Zero’ was an album borne out of frustration and anger due, in no small part to on-going label politics, and although the album finally saw the light of day last year, it was actually held in limbo for five years. Despite that delay, the band used the time wisely, getting to grips with every aspect of recording; from mic placement and different amps right through to mixing and mastering. Signing a new deal with Despotz Records saw the band effectively restarting their career; (‘We had to make up for lost time’ lead guitarist Tomas comments now) and with that in mind, the band wasted no time in getting back into the studio to record the follow-up to their Despotz Records debut. Following a successful run of dates with Pain and their own headlining run, CORRODED were battle ready and soon began work on what would become ‘Bitter’. With time conspiring against them, the band found themselves left with one weekend available to begin putting together song ideas. Working in such a pressurised way only brought the very best out of each of the band members, the kind of connection that only comes from years of playing together meant that the songs were soon coming together.

The last album CORRODED recorded was nearly 5 years ago. Due to a shift of labels that album was released just last year. Since that the band had to make up for lost time and that meant an awful lot of touring. As fun as it is to travel the world and play shows for their loyal fans they also knew they had to make another album as quickly as possible not to lose the momentum again. That left the band with an extremely short amount of time. With only a handful of song ideas laying around and only one weekend to write new material the odds were once again not looking too good for the band.

We made three songs that weekend and together with the rest of the ideas we had we started to build what would become the finished album” – says Tomas, guitar and backing vocals. 

“The whole process was best compared to Frankenstein’s monster. We cut everything up and put it back together a couple of times until we felt that we were on the right track.” -Tomas says.

When it was finally time to start writing the lyrics it wasn’t very hard to find topics to write about. The break with our first record label and the political state of the world had us all irritated and angry. The album title came quite easy and is the perfect sum up word for how we’d felt over the last couple of years. We also felt it was time to move on and there’s no better way to do that than to make a hard-hitting metal album.” Says Jens, lead singer and guitar.

We started all stressed out and weren’t even sure we’d make the album done in time but not only did we get it done in time, it came out far greater than we could have hoped for! It’s brutal, honest, melodic yet edgy. It’s CORRODED and it’s BITTER!” -Jens, Per, Bjarne and Tomas

Burn, the UK rock band, is back!! Away from the music scene for nearly 10 years since the release of the critically and commercially well received third album, ‘Global Warning‘, another slab of British hard rock is on the way.

MRR and Burn are proud to announce that band’s fourth album, ‘Ice Age’, is mastered and ready for release. The album has been produced by Barney Stackhouse and mixed by the Grammy award winning Tobias Lindell (Europe, H.E.A.T.)

The band states: “We have taken 5 years to create this album, and it is something of which we are incredibly proud. We hope and believe that the thousands of people who enjoyed Global Warning will find plenty to enjoy in this new release. We are also very proud to announce our new line-up. Although we have lost some great guys along the way, namely Jeff Ogden, Julian Nicholas (although he is still featured on one track on the new album) and Benji Reid, we are extremely lucky to have replaced them with a couple of outstanding new members.

Let’s introduce the guys right now –
On lead vocals Burn welcome none other than Steve Newman.
Steve is well known in the rock community through his numerous solo albums and other projects. He has built up a loyal and devoted following over many years and the consistent quality of his output was something that encouraged us to approach him. Steve was our first choice to lead the new line up, as we view him as possessing one of the very best voices in rock. Burn is the first band that Steve has committed himself to for many years. We are honoured to have him on board and fronting the band.

The other new member is the ridiculously talented Chris Green who brings his incendiary lead guitar skills to the band.
Chris is a current member of Tyketto and hard rock fans will remember him from Furyon, Rubicon Cross and Pride, along with various other projects. We really couldn’t think of another guitarist who could have done a better job on the new material than Chris. His sense of melody and feel combined with tremendous technique have produced some awe-inspiring solos on this album.
Burn’s history started in the heyday of melodic rock in the 1980’s, and from that foundation, through ‘Global Warning‘ and now ‘Ice Age‘, the band has developed into a modern hard rock act. With a multitude of influences and an open-minded view on song writing they push the boundaries of the genre while still retaining the core elements of power and melody.
In closing the band would like to add; “So, here we go. This is a new era for Burn and we are really looking forward to sharing our new stuff with everyone.”

Ice Age will get an initial release in Japan and Asia via Marquee/Avalon November 22 and worldwide via MRR on CD and all digital platforms January 19; with pre-sales from December 6 (which will include an advance audio preview of the album for those that pre-order).

Former Queensrÿche frontman Geoff Tate has unveiled a second video to promote the forthcoming release of ‘The Key’, the debut album by his new progressive metal outfit Operation: Mindcrime. Entitled ‘Burn’, the clip follows hot on the heels of the current single ‘Re-Inventing The Future’.

Like its predecessor, ‘Burn’ is directed by Seattle filmmaker Jamie Burton Chamberlin, and it sees Tate and

his band performing in the back of a stretch limo with an array of changing guests.

The Key’ is released on Frontiers Records on 18th September and is the first part of a trilogy from the iconic

vocalist. Operation: Mindcrime is a creative platform for Tate that continues in the spirit of the classic

Queensrÿche album of the same name, spawning concepts as grand as his music and intertwining the intensity

of his past with the progressive, provocative mindset that has made him one of rock music’s most resolute

forces. HIs 13 album tenure with his former band was marked by exploration, intrigue, bold risks and gratifying

results; ’The Key’ continues in that fine tradition.

Joining Tate are a hard-hitting cast of familiar faces and new collaborators: bass players Dave Ellefson

[Megadeth, Metal Allegiance] and John Moyer [Disturbed, Adrenaline Mob], drummers Simon Wright [AC/DC],

Scott Mercado [Candlebox] and Brian Tichy [Billy Idol, Ozzy Osbourne], guitarists Kelly Gray [Queensrÿche] and

Scott Moughton [Geoff Tate], keyboardist Randy Gane [Myth] and vocalist Mark Daly [The Voodoos].

Today Whitesnake premiered Burn from the upcoming “The Purple Album” released via Frontiers Music SRL in the UK on May 18th.

Rock icons Whitesnake are set to return with their 12th studio album this spring. The Purple Album will be released in Europe on May 15th, the UK on May 18th and in North America on May 19th via Frontiers Music SRL. The Purple Album is a re-imagination of classic songs from David Coverdale’s time as the lead singer for Deep Purple’s Mark 3 and Mark 4 studio albums.

The album is currently available for pre-order in various configurations on Amazon – Standard Edition, Deluxe Edition featuring 2 bonus tracks, 4 music videos and a behind the scenes featurette on the recording of the album, and in a double LP vinyl format. Plans are also underway for a special limited box set edition with memorabilia and merchandise. All details will be announced soon.

“It’s a tribute. A homage. It’s a huge thank you from me to Deep Purple for the opportunity I was given over 40 years ago,” says Coverdale. “As I said to Ritchie, you guys set me on an incredible journey that continues today and I couldn’t have asked for better teachers. The university of Deep Purple is an extraordinary, amazing school to learn from. We can’t wait to play these songs in concert.”

From the opening notes of the classic track “Burn,” to album closer “Stormbringer,” Whitesnake are back and better than ever. Songs like “Lady Double Dealer,” “Soldier of Fortune” and “Sail Away” are given a new energy in the very capable hands of the current Whitesnake line-up featuring David Coverdale on vocals, Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra on guitars, Michael Devin on bass and Tommy Aldridge on drums.
