Резултат слика за Metallica and Gaga grammy awards

The other band member’s, specially the drummer Lars Ulrich, was blown away by Gaga.

As reported by WJLA in Washington, He has indeed offered Lady Gaga a spot in the group, inviting her to join the band onstage whenever she can.

Lars Ulrich spoke in an interview with Access Hollywood. He stated this:

“We’ve got a new lead singer. Well, a new co-lead singer, is a better way of saying it. We were talking earlier about maybe making her a permanent member of Metallica, and being a five-piece from now on, so we’ll see.

It is not yet known if Gaga would be indeed be part of the next studio release, or if she will only take part in some live concerts. But with this  situation, it seems that it will happen for sure, also Lars added this about thier new record: This is only the start!

Metallica has decided to destroy the essence of metal, with cooperation with Lady Gaga. They will made metal a commercial music in every way, for the big masses. They lost there authenticity, and become something they wanted to become for years, but this is even worse. The fans will from  now on listen Gaga’s vocal with Metallica, and this is the beginning of destruction of metal music.

Here is the video clip of thier performance at 59th Grammy Awards, enjoy:

1.How the band started?

I heard Mourning Palace by Dimmu Borgir and the desire to found a symphonic black metal band became powerful. So I started of without band members, without a rehearsal room, without proper equipment and without any knowledge about the scene whatever or how to write songs in this genre.

2.Which band is your role model?

There is no certain band, it’s more composition techniques and styling of classical composers such as Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorak, Reich. Beethoven is also where my preference, to write in C minor came from.

3.What do you think about today’s metal scene?

The scene is scattering itself more and more into new appearing styles. In my eyes, these categorizations also just adds a lot of intolerance within the scene and limits the original freedom of thought.

4.How would you describe in one sentence your work?

Musically authentic, serious and multi-faceted.

5.Why did you decide to play this musical direction?

We just find this type of music interesting and enjoy playing it.

Image may contain: 5 people, people standing

6.Where would you most like to play a concert?

Wacken.

7.Do you think that the metal festivals are enough visited?

The big festivals are visited very well, but the smaller festivals kind of make themselves competitive and are often not really visited by newcomer bands.

8.What are you listening to the most right now?

Two steps from Hell, Satyricon und Helldozers.

9.What would you say to your fans?

Share and multiply!

10.What are your plans for the future?

To release the 4th CD, play gigs, film a new professional video, new merchandise and increase the fame of the band.

SCALA MERCALLI Making of Video Clip “September 18, 1860” Released!

Italian heavy metallers SCALA MERCALLI have released their “making of” video for “September 18, 1860“. The video is dedicated to the battle of Castelfidardo. During the battle, Sardinian Kingdom Army defeated Pontifical State Army to set Umbria and Marche regions free: the two regions so became part of the new Italian Kingdom. The video has been filmed in the same places where the battle took place, under the National Monument to the Fallen. Here are the “behind the scenes” and the impressions of the band!

Watch the “making of” video here (subtitles in English): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDZaHMrj890&t=72s

You can see the video “September 18, 1860” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ocQ-pJ5efE

SCALA MERCALLI released their latest album “New Rebirth” on October 10th 2015, worldwide, via Art Gates Records. It focuses on the Italian Risorgimento and how it can be seen and used in every country, considering what we are experiencing not only in Italy and in Europe, but all over the world.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZ9AkTod4Iw

Nyctophilia” is an eclectic mix of all that characterizes the band, 13 new tracks of 80s-fueled blackened extreme music, executed in NERVOCHAOS trademark: raw, aggressive and organic style of Metal. “Nyctophilia” has a new intensity and it takes a step forward, compared to their older releases.

For the first time, the band recorded the album outside Brazil, spending a month in Como/Italy at Alpha Omega Studio along with producer Alex Azzali, who also did mixing and mastering of the new album. Also it’s the first album composed and recorded with the new line-up which features Lauro ‘Nightrealm’ on vocal/guitar, Cherry on guitar, Thiago ‘Anduscias’ on bass and the only remaining original member Edu Lane on drums. The album artwork was created by Alcides Burn, a talented Brazilian artist that has worked with acts such as Blood Red Throne, Acheron, Iconoclasm, Headhunter DC and many more to list. “Nyctophilia” also features special guest vocals appearance by Sebastian L. of INTO DARKNESS and Leandro P. of R.N.S. plus one track, ‘Vampiric Cannibal Goddess’, with the guitar riffs created by Bolverk of RAGNAROK.

Nyctophilia” surely is the best album up-to-date from NERVOCHAOS, which managed to evolve musically without losing the band’s proposal and trademark.

“We trust that not so far we will face and experience a NEW ERA distinguished by the renaissance of the mankind and reunification with Nature. This awareness will be reached through love and brotherhood among human beings and between human beings and all the endless propagation and creatures of Nature. With this new album the band wants to communicate a shining and positive message for the future in opposition with the current reality that seems so dark and hopeless. “New Era” is the result of our inner change. Through our compositions  we want to represent the metamorphosis occurred in each one of us during the long road that disconnected us from falsehood and artificiality and helped us discover real feelings and emotions. “New Era” ‘s tracks are being mixed and mastered in Canada by Chris Donaldson at “ The Grid “ studio as we speak.”

The astonishing artwork has been created and designed by Pierre-Alain D./3mmi Design .
