The video was filmed at the Berlin Dungeon and sees the band perform in the spooky surroundings with the band later turned into wax work models. It is the first Deep Purple promotional video since 'Love Conquers All' from the Joe Lynn Turner fronted line up of 1990. You can see the video below.

Frontiers Records are pleased to announce Whitesnake's explosive new double live album, 'Made In Britain'/'The World Record' – officially released in the UK on Monday 8th July. The 2-disc live set coincides with the news of Whitesnake's UK Arena Tour with Journey and Thunder which kicks off at Glasgow SECC on Saturday 18th May.

During 2011 the mighty Whitesnake embarked on one of their most successful world tours in recent times, performing 96 shows in over 35 countries, starting in North America in May right the way through until the second UK run in December. The request for another live album came from Whitesnake's loyal fans - never ones for being notoriously shy about insisting what they want from their favourite musical reptiles. Before heading out on the Forevermore World Tour 2011, the decision was made to record every performance on the tour.

After spending the early part of 2012 feverishly editing and mixing the Whitesnake:…

Wendy Dio Comments On Third Anniversary Of Ronnie James Dio's Death

On May 16th, 2010 RONNIE JAMES DIO died at the age of 67 and the world of music mourned the loss of one of the greatest voices in heavy metal.

Today, the third anniversary of Dio's passing, his former partner/manager Wendy Dio has offered up the following thoughts:

"Today is a difficult day for all of us. It has been three years since Ronnie's passing. Sometimes it feels like only yesterday and sometimes it feels like an eternity ago. Please take a moment of silence sometime in the day to remember him on this Anniversary of his death. I know you all loved him, and I thank you for keeping his music and his memory alive.

I take comfort in this old prayer I would like to share with you.

I cannot speak, but I can listen,
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard,
I am in the song you hear,
I am in the breeze you feel...
I am in the stars you see
I am still with you.

Peace be with all of us."

Jeff "Hanneman Most Likely Died From Alcohol And Not The Spider Bite"

You might remember a couple months ago when The Gauntlet posted a story about Jeff Hanneman not wanting to come back to Slayer and pretty much being out of touch with the band members. We received several reports from friends of Jeff that he stopped taking physical therapy seriously. Earlier this week, Jeff's behavior caught up with him and he was admitted to the hospital in Souther California where his liver later failed.

Our sources today tell us "Jeff was drinking Heineken and vodka for breakfast, lunch and dinner up until a few months ago. The spider bite was no longer an issue with him, it was his drinking. He just never stopped. It is such a sad day for metal. He was Slayer."

Slayer broke the news of his death today and also stated he was survived by his wife Kathy. "You have to wonder who wrote that statement" another source tells us as "Jeff Hanneman filed for divorce from Kathy almost two years ago. Either some publicist wrote the sta…

King Diamond and Volbeat Release Free Download

Volbeat’s latest album, “Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies”, features a guest appearance from the legendary King Diamond.

Today, King Diamond and Volbeat are pleased to release the Jacob Hansen mastered version of this track, titled “Room 24″, as a FREE download gift to the fans.
Fans can download the track in full-quality HERE.
The track “Room 24″ features a massive coup for Volbeat with the guest appearance from King Diamond, the legendary front man of Danish metal pioneers Mercyful Fate, and one of Poulsen’s musical idols. Volbeat reveals, “I’m a huge fan of Mercyful Fate and King Diamond. Having King on the record is a huge privilege. Normally, it’s not something he does. He wrote his own lines, and it is half my lyrics and half his. It’s a weird, scary story, and he’s the perfect person for it.”

METALLICA Pinball Game Playthrough

Metallica announced their (not very cheap) pinball game a few weeks ago, and I have to say, after watching this mini-playthough video, I really want to play the game. It incorporates many Metallica tropes into the pinball game and it does so very well. Game designer John Borg went through all the features of the game:

 Pinball games are my personal favorite when it comes to arcade games so if I ever see this sucker at an arcade, it will definitely be eating up quite a few of my dollars. I'm assuming the games will be available to play at Orion Fest in a few weeks, it would just make sense. If that isn't enough for you, here is some schmuck playing the game for 15 minutes:


Rock Goddess the female power trio from the days of NWOBHM have reformed with the original line up of sisters Jody and Julie Turner and bassist Tracey Lamb.

Lamb made the surprise announcement on her Facebook page last week with the message: "I'm very pleased to announce that after 30 years the Original Rock Goddess line up has reformed (Jody, Julie & Tracey) and will start to record a new album asap with the provisional title 'Unfinished Business' :)"

This has also been confirmed by the Turners' father and manager John Turner.

The band was formed in Wandsworth South London as early as 1977, by sisters Jody Turner (Guitar and vocals) and Julie Turner (Drums) when they were thirteen and nine years old respectively. They recruited school friend Tracey Lamb on bass guitar.

They first rose to the nation's awareness when they were first featured in Kerrang No.5 in 1981 in the 'Armed And Ready' section w…

Lita Ford Releases New Video, 'MOTHER'

U.D.O. Possibility Of Reunion With ACCEPT

Mark Dean of Myglobalmind webzine recently conducted an interview with former ACCEPT and current U.D.O. frontman Udo Dirkschneider. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

Myglobalmind: You are about to release a new album, "Steelhammer", which is the first not to feature [guitarist] Stefan Kaufmann.

Udo: Yes, that is correct. The problem was he is a very busy man. He did a recording with [another artist], which took three months, and also played on tour. I think then that the problem was he wanted to move his studio back to his hometown. He didn't want to be involved in the composing and songwriting this time on this album. We had a problem then, at the beginning of this year. He was getting more and more work touring, etc., and he said that he wouldn't have as much time to do this. Then he said that he was out of the band. He did offer to come and help us out if there was any problem and we needed him.

Myglobalmind: That must have been very difficu…
