Swedish metallers Soilwork will release a new EP, "A Whisp Of The Atlantic". on December 4 on the label Nuclear Blast. The official music for the first single from the effort is "The Nothingness And The Devil".
Guitarist David Andersson states: "'The Nothingness And The Devil' is a song about how the old concept of a patriarchal God doesn't work anymore, and how everyone with any logic reasoning must accept that we have to create our own deities, if we need them.
AC/DC planned on releasing "Power Up" earlier this year, the pandemic forced the band to reconsider.
"We were hoping to get the album out before all this happened," Angus said. "They were getting ideas together for packaging and video promo things. And then that virus thing came along. It kind of put everyone on hold."
It's been three years since MAGNUM brought out "The Valley Of Tears - The Ballads", a compilation that focused on the British rock act's quiet, more otherworldly and dreamy side. Three years during which the idea matured to follow this successful release (top 100 of the German album charts) with a companion piece.
The new album by monsterman Rob Zombie will be titled "The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser". The delayed release will be available on April 29. The album was produced by Chris Harris.
The track listing for the CD is as follows:
01. The Last Of The Demons Defeated
02. Satanic Cyanide! The Killer Rocks On!
03. The Life And Times Of A Teenage Rock God
04. Well, Everybody's Fucking In A U.F.O.
05. A Hearse Overturns With The Coffin Bursting Open
06. The Hideous Exhibitions Of A Dedicated Gore Whore
07. Medication For The Melancholy
08. In The Age Of The Consecrated Vampire We All Get High
09. Super-Doom-Hex-Gloom Part One
10. In The Bone Pile
11. Get Your Boots On! That's The End Of Rock And Roll
Rockers 3 Doors Down will release its sixth full-length album, "Us And The Night", on March 11 via Republic Records. The album was recorded at Rivergate Studios in Nashville, Tennessee with producer Matt Wallace at the helm. It nods to the spirit of their breakout debut with seasoned songwriting and the biggest and boldest songs of their 16-year career to date.
Fans can pre-order "Us And The Night" starting January 15. All those who pre-order the album will receive an instant download of their first single, "In The Dark".
"In The Dark" shows a different side of 3 Doors Down. You'll recognize the robust riffing, but it flaunts a sexy and striking chant that emphasizes a new groove and swagger altogether.
On the new album, 3 Doors Down lead singer Brad Arnold notes: "We're all excited to release our new album, 'Us And The Night'. It's truly been a labor of love and we can't wait to get these songs out to our fans around the world."

the rap - metal - rock outfit Linkin Park is back in the studio recording a new album that hopefully rock more than 2014's "The Hunting Party" album did.
The band has posted a picture on Facebook of singer Chester Bennington laying down vocal tracks, with the accompanying caption: "Back to work this week."
Linkin Park began work on a new album late last year, with the band's Mike Shinoda telling NME: "I have no idea what it'll sound like yet. It won't sound like 'The Hunting Party'. We like to surprise people."
"The Hunting Party" was released in June 2014 and produced the hit singles "Guilty All The Same" and "Until It's Gone". The album was described as something of a return to the rap-rock sound of the first two albums, "Hybrid Theory" and "Meteora".
Chester Bennington spent a couple of years touring as the singer of Stone temple Pilots but they split last November.
Alter Bridge has started to work on the follow-up to the band's last album "Fortress" that was released 2013. The album is once again being produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette and the release is planed for the fall.
After extensive requests from fans for unique or special ALTER BRIDGE items over the years, the band is kicking off the start of the new album cycle with exactly that.

Guitarist Mark Tremonti comments: "Gearing up for [the fifth ALTER BRIDGE album], we are happy to be able to offer our fans a few of the things they have asked us for in the past. As a band, we also tried to come up with a few unique items which I feel are the ultimate collector's items!" Vocalist/guitarist Myles Kennedy adds: "We are very excited to offer these exclusive and unique opportunities for the ALTER BRIDGE fans as we begin the next chapter of our journey!"
Regarding what fans can expect from the next ALTER BRIDGE album, Tremonti told TeamRock Radio: "It could go in any direction. I've got a ton of ideas in all different styles. Last time, it was just one heavy idea after another and hopefully this time we can branch out and bring something new to the table."
We are a bit surprised to learn that the surf punk band The Offspring has sold the rights to their entire catalog of Columbia Records master recordings and the publishing rights for all its songs to for some $35 million.
The Offspring has sold the recorded masters for the six albums it made for Columbia Records, along with the publishing rights to the songs on all nine of its studio efforts. The master recordings for the band's first three albums remain with Epitaph, the label that originally released them.
Among the Epitaph albums is 1994's "Smash", the breakout blockbuster that sold more than six million copies in the U.S. and featured the hits "Come Out And Play", "Self-Esteem" and "Gotta Get Away". Included in the Columbia catalog are 1997's "Ixnay On The Hombre", which sold 1.4 million copies, 1998's "Americana", which moved five million, and 2000's platinum-selling "Conspiracy Of One".
The Offspring have sold a total of 17 million copies of their nine albums to date.
Frontman Dexter Holland thinks The Offspring's albums have all had a consistent style. "I think that there's a thread that runs through all of our albums, for sure," he said. "I mean, people say there's a sound to our band. I don't know exactly what that sound is, but people seem to recognize it when they hear our records, and like any of our other records, there are songs that people might not expect to hear from us, but people seem to know it still sounds like us."
Holland said in a statement about the catalog sale, "We felt that having the right caretaker for our catalog, both the masters and the publishing, is incredibly important to the future of our career."
It obviously is all about the money...
