VEKTOR UNLEASH NEW TRACK 'PTEROPTICON' ON METAL HAMMER

"Epic headbanging soundtracks for lost astronauts" - Rolling Stone
"We haven't seen extreme thrash this vital in decades" - Stereogum
"The best album of the last 5 years... 10/10" - Deaf Forever
"Vektor are the sickest band in modern thrash" - The Needledrop
"Awesome technical space-concept metal" - Dr. Matt Taylor (European Space Agency Rosetta Mission Project Scientist)


Highly complex progressive sci-fi-themed metallers VEKTOR have teamed up with the UK's Metal Hammer for the debut of a brand new track, "Pteropticon".

Taken from their eagerly-anticipated new album 'Terminal Redux', which is due to be released this Friday, May 6th, "Pteropticon" roars into life before swooping in to knock listeners off their feet with its ferocious riffing and screeching solos.

VEKTOR frontman David DiSanto comments:

"Deep in space and far in the future, an elite squadron of Reapers, dubbed 'Pteropticon', descends upon an unsuspecting, alien world.  The prefix, Pter, means wing.  An Opticon is the inner part of the optic lobes in an insect brain.  Put them together and you get an all-seeing force that patrols worlds from the sky.  This track is a full-force, thrash attack from start to finish.  We really hope you like it!  A million thanks to Metal Hammer for debuting this track and staying true to all types of metal.  'Pteropticon' is just a part of the puzzle of our new album, 'Terminal Redux', which comes out May 6th.  Support, enjoy, cheers!"

EARACHE TO DEAFEN AMERICA WITH NEWLY-INKED ADA/WARNER DISTRO & SERVICES DEAL

Pioneering UK independent label Earache Records has teamed up with ADA/Warner in the USA for a new distribution and services deal, to make its iconic catalogue available again physically on CD and vinyl LP from May 5th.

Founded over 25 years ago in Nottingham, England, Earache launched the early extreme metal movement in the 1990s with bands such as NAPALM DEATH, MORBID ANGEL, GODFLESH, SLEEP, CLUTCH and CARCASS.  Almost ten years ago, Earache released the USA debut of BRING ME THE HORIZON, a then-little-known UK band which has since gone on to great global success.  Still founder-owned and operated, label head Digby Pearson was honoured with the AIM Pioneer Award 2015 for services to the independent sector.

Recently the label has been at the forefront of a re-energised blues rock movement, with bands such as Long Beach's RIVAL SONS - currently playing arenas supporting BLACK SABBATH - and THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT - who completed a tour with THE ROLLING STONES last year - both charting Top 20 across the UK and Europe.  Titles from both bands will be available for sale.

Earache will issue RIVAL SONS' new album 'Hollow Bones' on June 10th exclusively through ADA/Warner, which will cement this exciting partnership.

See the 'Hollow Bones' artwork at http://bit.ly/1Sj2HsQ

Earache USA Label Manager Al Dawson comments:

"We at Earache are beyond excited to partner with ADA for the USA.  This is a next level, game-changing step in the company's evolution within today's rapidly-changing music business.  Our ADA team has so much talent it's awe-inspiring.  Look forward to us building careers for many more new and mind-blowing artists."

Retailers should contact their ADA/Warner representative for more details.

MASSIVE: NEW ALBUM 'DESTINATION SOMEWHERE' OUT NOW

"Already one of the most interesting and diverse rock albums" - Classic Rock
"If you want to become the next Guns N' Roses you have to compete with Massive" - Deaf Forever
"The ten ass-kicking tracks make you beg for summer, BBQ and beer" - Rock Hard (DE)
"Without doubt our album of the month" - Rock Hard (FR)


'Destination Somewhere', the brand new album from Aussie rockers MASSIVE, is out now worldwide.

Following the release of their 2013 debut 'Full Throttle' - a balls-to-the-wall, rock 'n' roll party album - MASSIVE have drawn from their experiences in recent years to show a greater diversity with 'Destination Somewhere'.  The album was largely inspired by and written during the countless hours and thousands of miles the band has spent on the road in the pursuit of rock 'n' roll glory.

"When it was time to write our second album, we were touring non-stop," comments MASSIVE frontman Brad Marr.  "Destination Somewhere was written everywhere from hotel rooms in Europe to the tour van in outback Australia."

"We were just always on the road," adds drummer Jarrod Medwin, "We were living in a van, never home, didn't know where we were going next."

The result was ten brand new songs which range from hard rock anthems such as "One for the Road" and the album's title track, to the blues-soaked, slide guitar-driven "Beaten Dog".

Get 'Destination Somewhere' now on CD and coloured vinyl, including limited edition signed versions, at http://www.earache.com/massive

The album is also available now on iTunes, including an exclusive bonus track, at http://bit.ly/destination-itunes

'Destination Somewhere' track list:

1. One for the Road
2. Blood Money Blues
3. Sinking Ship
4. The Fall
5. Made of Stone
6. Destination Somewhere
7. Up in Smoke
8. Circus
9. The Way It's Always Been
10. Beaten Dog
