ADRENALINE MOB Involved In Fatal Crash In Florida





ADRENALINE MOB — the band featuring Russell Allen (vocals; also of SYMPHONY X) and Mike Orlando (guitar) — was involved in a fatal crash Friday afternoon (July 14) in Florida.

ADRENALINE MOB bassist David Zablidowsky died and six others were injured when a tractor-trailer veered off Interstate 75 near Micanopy and struck the group's RV that had pulled off the highway with a flat tire. Zablidowsky was pronounced dead at 12:42 p.m.
Out of the nine people who were in the vehicles, six were taken to area hospitals, and two declined medical treatment, according to Gainesville.com. Of the six injured, three were listed in critical condition and the other three in stable condition.

Zablidowsky joined ADRENALINE MOB earlier this year. Prior to hooking up with the group, he had toured with TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS, and Jeff Scott Soto.

TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA released the following statement regarding Zablidowsky's death: "We are terribly saddened with the passing of our talented friend, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, ADRENALINE MOB and ZO2 bass player, Dave Z (David Zablidowsky). Dave was so very special to our family and our thoughts and prayers go out to Dave's family, and all those affected by Friday's tragic accident."

ADRENALINE MOB was touring in support of its third studio album, "We The People", which was released on June 2 via Century Media. The follow-up to 2014's "Men Of Honor" was the first ADRENALINE MOB release to feature Zablidowsky and the band's new drummer Jordan Cannata.

Purtenance returns with a brand new track. Their new EP "Paradox of Existence" of this year set for release.


When it comes to death metal, I tend to lean towards the more traditional or old school approach. Too brutal or too technical and something gets lost. Crushing riffs, great solos, and evil as fuck growls, that’s what I love about death metal. There’s something to be said about a band’s aesthetic principles and how they tie into the music itself. Whether it be to capture the emotive principles or intellectual underpinnings of an album, a band’s imagery is undoubtedly an intrinsic component of how the music there in affects the listener. On occasion however, it can also signal a change in direction. Death metal does not stagnate in a constant form. Some challengers exist, such as Purtenance.

Nokia based Finnish death metal purveyor  Purtenance unveiled about their new EP. Their new EP "Paradox of Existence" will release in 12th September 2017 via Xtreem Music record label. They have released a single track entitled “In the End Only Death Will Remain”. They have already unleashed their upcoming EP artwork and EP name but, we have to wait some more days till release. In before they have released 3 full length album entitled “Member of Immortal Damnation” in 1992 and sophomore album entitled “Awaken from Slumber” in 2013 and last one is "...to Spread the Flame of Ancients" in 2015. Basically Purtenance was formed in 1989 as Purtenance Avulsion. In 1991 they have changed their name as Purtenance and continuing with their signature old school death metal till today.

This new tracks whole composition,production is extremely filthy and relentlessly unforgiving . I was interviewed them and reviewed also their last studio effort. Now looking forward for the whole material release and again review the EP. To be honest this is more challenging for me haha. At first listen “In the End Only Death Will Remain”  floored me with their dreaded amalgamation which leads to a hammerin  old School blunt force trauma with heavy,twisted riffs, hyped pedal thrusts. Always I looking for this type of harshest slabs of death metal.This whole album enthralled me with  their Unrelenting ,powerful,blasting ,overarching,chromatic, chaotic,rugged, critical acclaimed death metal sound  and dense  musical style and this new album rekindle my affection,obsession for proper old school death metal. This bands each and every musician exudes tremendous effort in radiant way on this album with excellent diligence and nailed it. They have injected brilliant  riffs works, dark and dirge vibes into aural bashing,furious,fast death metal with strangulated riffs work simultaneously that burns with oppressive fervor. I applaud this new addition and cite them.

Album Review :~ Kafirun - Eschaton

The obsession with anything outre is not exactly a novelty in the metal scene, but occasionally it will assume a much more complex and nuanced dimension owing to musicians who insist on addressing such topics with utmost maturity and profundity. Numerous bands have created albums based around their own ideas that take insight from creative writing, but few bands will dedicate the entire span of an album to relevant interpretation of the belief With the emergence and escalation of the novel and notorious tendency. While some excellent ,unique band attempting to sell their flavor of the month band to potential listeners, there are some that simply exist outside of pre-existing molds and take a few years to realize their full potential and thusly grasp the imaginations of many who are fortunate enough to witness their evolve talent. Shadowy, death worshipping Vancouver quartet Kafirun's latest offering is cut above the rest. Spawning from the depths of Occultism, Chaos, Knowledge, Esoteric Literature, anti-religious is the newest record from orthodox black metal Kafirun - Eschaton. Kafirun this Vancouver, Canadian group married the ritualistic fury of esoteric,occult black metal with a creeping dose of mystical,ominous,sinister madness. The atmosphere and tightly plotted albums were based on mystical, occult, incantation while still employing their own take on black metal.

On this year Vancouver based Canadian black metallers Kafirun Unveiled their debut full length opus on this year entitled “Eschaton” via Saance Records record label with 41:59 min running time along with hellish,skin-ripping artistry. This new album consist with 7 tracks . Kafirun was formed in 2014. They have developed into an independent mystical, occult and grand entity with their release Death Worship (2014) and Glorification of Holy Death (2015). Now I am straight going to the point about this new album . 

When at first checked out their manifestation I was overwhelmed and infused by the track because of authentic sound ,ferocious,mature and from then I was clinched  that I have to check this whole material for sure and this would be savage beast. Kafirun delivers distinctly experimental, atmospherically evil,vivid,horrifying form of black metal. They Playing the type of scathing, otherworldly black metal. This bands each and every musician did fantastic job on this album in radiant way and It’s really great when your high hopes are not misplaced. Kafirun manage to strike the right balance between raw, atavistic aggression and a more sophisticated, occult approach.This whole album reflects the grand diversity of sound brought together on this album . It is really not easy to describe their musical style . Kafirun create a constantly shapeshifting maelstrom of crushing chaos and disorder. A natural synthesis of dissonant sounds and disparate styles all combined in one bold, enlightened display of unbound creativity Despite the often crushing,fast ,furious,cacophonous black metal assaults with a lots of segments of slower tempo too where Kafirun combines a atmospheric, mysterious, introspective passages with cavernous drum thrashes, whirlwind guitars and those effective rasps.

well,their latest incantations opening track is “Lord of Blessed Murder” . This track starts with massive,fast paced black metal. The layered tapestry of slightly trebly and heavily laden with reverb, duo-tonal whirlwind of guitar noise laced with aggression,deliberate cadence and progression seasonings supporting the likewise crooning, almost moaning deeply in the throat, high-pitched , duo vocals drown a bit in the almost unhuman-like furiously fast though muffled drumming with ripping and snorting bass, although this evolves to a more dynamic sound on the rest of the album. Their whole composition and musical style is impeccable also borrow great atmosphere with sour ,dissonant riffs work . All instruments are dynamic, clearly discerned, yet none stand out amidst the cacophony and indeed they have far surpassed it. 

This new albums whole compositions are extremely filthy and unsettling piece of sinister,grim euphoria and unearthly ambiance . “Eschaton”  commences chronologically invigorating and destructive. Their distinct entity infused me by a lot . Their musical style have a quite soft and smooth edge which adds to the more atmospheric,unique kind of black metal but at the same time the vocals and other parts of the riffing is straight forward brutal,ferocious simultaneously . Honestly, after a multiple listen this album just blew me away with their ethereal abyss,multi-dimensional,the multi-layered,ominous musical style . Eschaton perversely brims with an illuminating light, devouring the cosmic light of life and scurrying through the sort of black metal whose radiance is so obsidian as to consume energy as austerely as it expends it. Each musicians have exudes tremendous,cohesive effort on this album with excellent diligence and nailed it . In this moment which is eternal yet transitory, a new and pure energy grows within the womb of chaos, and which ignites the source of a new aeon, a flame needless of air to exist. Kafirun really does the trick for the atmosphere is the overall murky,mysterious, Juxtapositions of darkness and light, misty sound that comes from the music. A new true god that breeds its new self, purified and sanctified in chaos without an end nor a beginning. I highly cite and embrace this album . 

This album is filled with a slew of cadence, apocalyptic,pummeling, ominous,hellish, powerful riffs work . As well bass line up is whopping,intense,strong ,rumbling, slithering . Drumming,percussion line up is bleak, frantic,solid,clattering and powerful . The guitars are solely focused on creating a grandiose atmosphere, but predominantly rely on walls of sound and swerving rhythms.In each track morbidly delicious,macabre,soaring,dark eerie,ghastly riffs,bass lineups matched in well manner .This whole albums sound deliver a dissonant,grim feeling,sinister,melancholic,gruesome black metal with raw emotion and pure energy . “Eschaton ” endures beauty of black metal . This album indulge strong songwriting and brilliant musicianship . This album have a hypnotic effect on the listener . Vocals decently large voice that does well for Kafirun . Especially his menacing and hoarse voice are excellent . Vocals howling scream,immense,deep rasps voice emerged on this album in a well manner adds a thick murky sound and intertwined perfectly with their utterly spellbinding,obtuse,bizarrely arrogant, mysterious,fully blistering black metal,distant musical style with a lots of melodic,atmospheric accompaniment and embedded perfectly . Their sound,musicianship is absolute prime, with every song unleashing a seething torrent of scalding dissonance and insidious melody, scorching distortion, and barbaric, blasphemous invective, all of which combine to produce an overarching atmosphere of creeping, crippling dread. Overall you will get sinister,gloomy,desolate,mysterious ambient from this whole album .I really worship this band.

Each song have an energy ,fluency and draw a savage landscape .Stand out tracks are all of them .Every song, every hellish, skin-stripping riff and vile vocal incantation, is delivered with the righteous fury and unwavering conviction of the true believer. I personally Cherish Lord of Blessed Murder, Eschaton, Omega Serpent, Divine Providence, Ephemerality of the Flesh,Omnipresence. Vision of the album cover is Pretty neat,solid,atrocious,grisly, macabre, gorgeously hideous. Overall “Eschaton” whole album is Spectacular,engrossing ,significant and goes all the way through with a relentless rage from the beginning. Eschaton is surely the apotheosis of everything. The sound has a depth to it, that with brief distortion. Eschaton is a elite black metal sophistication in their music without sacrificing the feral, ugly core of the style. This album sounds so authentic and a truly remarkable sonic journey from beginning to end . Eschaton  is a deep and winding journey throughout the mysterious and stifling occult. Indeed this album is such an true gem of this year . The production is absolutely impeccable,capable of handling both the massive atmospheric and gargantuan heft.Outstanding another one release of this year so far .“Eschaton ” is shattering culmination in black metal evolution. Kafirun can effectively capture a pristine essence of bloodthirsty transcendent abandon, disenchanted delirium, or perhaps even a very inhuman strain of mystical experience. The Canadian bruisers still possess all the necessary skills and hard-won experience to put younger,newcomer challengers in their place.With " Eschaton ", Kafirun writes another chapter in their book of successive masterpieces. This is astral projection through a viscous dense black cosmic ocean. If you looking for something different, epic this album will take you on a sophisticated and weighty black metal journey into another universe where music has the power to transcend the spoken word.

Velnio Troba interview

Good mourning Jegor, welcome to Metalhead Spotted Magazine. Let's start from a simple question - what did you eat today for breakfast? :)

 Hi. Today I ate cottage cheese and some sandwiches :)

Tell us more about the idea behind Velnio Troba, and why you decided to form this project
Perhaps it all begins from my childhood. There were LARPG (live action role playing games) organisation in my town, and when I saw them in the street, I felt something strange, something that begins from ancient times, when sun was a god. I could not explain that feeling, it was like I saw ghost or ancient wizard, something magical and mystical. Then that feeleng came to me again and again. I remember one history lesson at school, I was 16 years old. I sitted in the end of the classroom, and fell asleep. I slept less than a minute, but I remember this dream for life. In this dream atmosphere was like in Dark Souls game, same lighting, same feelings. And there was a siege. I stood with sword and shield in the front row, and somebody strucked me with spear. I felt how spear passed through my side, how it got out from my back. I remember clang of weapon and armors, screams of soldiers. From the sensation of how spear strucked me, I woke up. After that dream the same visions met me again and again, more realistic.
So, Velnio Troba is meditation instrument for me to make these visions alive, something to transfer them from my mind into something tangible. Velnio Troba helps me to transfer these abstract visions into music, sounds that are ordered and understandable.
But what Velnio Troba means? "Velnio troba" from lithuanian translates as "a hut of the Imp", or devil. This is a place where mystical creatures are getting together and tell their stories, have fun and have a rest from their problems and tragedies. So the main idea of albums is tell story of each creature-guest of Imp's hut.

I sure you really sick of this question but - why "one-man band"? Why not to make a full line up?

Velnio Troba is something very close and intimate for me. It is all about my magical and mystical visions that I see and feel from childhood, so only I can explain them. It is meditation for me. Maybe I will play in some band, I would like to do this, but it will not be Velnio Troba.

Tell us more about "Jadviga" recording process

The Jadviga's recording process is simple as possible- I recorded it at home using audiointerface and Audacity software. I differ concepts "good sound" and "good music". Now it is very easy to get excellent quality of sound, but it is a masterpiece to make excellent mood and feelings in music, to give conceived form to the composition. For example, Poccolus-Ragana, or Burzum-Filosofem. There need to be harmony between sound's quality and composition's idea. For me music is not about only sounds, for me music is about souds, feelings and mood. It is about visions, which made by sound. It is like sharing energy, sharing minds and mood. It is like talk without words, like telepathy and empathy. So I recorded and mixed Jadviga by myself because I wanted to share this visions and feelings in my way. This is my meditation and my talk to myself, so nobody could not understand and share my visions better than myself.


What do you think about the "internet era", and the downloading links?

It is very interesting question. The internet became a huge part of our life, so it is normal that it became a part of music industry. Earlier people bought vinil, then CDs, now mp3 files. It became much more easier to get music, and I think that it is big advantage. But for myself, I prefer CDs, I like that feeling when you choose disc to listen, feel that smell of CD, this process of inserting disc into player. It is something different than only list playlist in your mobilephone. It's like compare e-books and physical books of paper. I think that there is nothing bad in downloading music, like reading books on smartphone, but CDs always will be nostalgic and more pleasant, like real books.

Thanks for you time. Any last words to our readers?
Listen to yourselves and don't be afraid of your visions.
