. Over het project Klone will be opening for Orphaned Land through Europe from the 20th of September to the 15th of November 2013. With more than 48 dates, this tour will go through every European capitals in venues hosting from 500 to 1 500 people. It's one of the main events of the rock/metal scene for autumn 2013. Klone will share the stage with 4 other bands. Orphaned Land, the headliner, is a major band of the Israeli Oriental metal scene.
The band has been spreading a message of love and peace between nations for more than 20 years. For the release of his new album, 'All is one', Orphaned Land chose Khalas, a Palistinian band and Bicolate, a Jordanian one, to call for reconciliation between these nations. They also wanted two French bands to be present on the whole tour to embody the nation of human rights. To go on with this tour, Klone has to bear its own cost. We need your help to balance our budget to carry out this project in good conditions. We need 4 000 euros to pay our travel expenses. I have to add we're not paid to go on this tour.
During this tour, we intend to play in front of huge crowds every night, get known abroad, win new fans, meet professionals (tour managers, record companies.) and share our musical universe. Waarvoor dient het bedrag? To take part with this tour, we have to give an advance of 15 000€. It covers a part of the tour bus expenses, which includes petrol, motorways.
This tour bus will be our home during two months. We are asking for 3 500€ on Ulule but we actually need 4 300€ to balance our budget. We also have to pay for our ride to get to the tour bus (in Colmar) and then come back from Calais (this amounts to about 600€). I think it’s essential to say we don’t get any fees for this tour. Our only revenues will come from merchandising (CDs, T-shirts) This tour is quite important for us: we’ll get to play in new countries, extend our network and win over new fans. Budget Tour bus expenses: 15 000€ Ride to and from the tour bus (To Colmar, from Calais): 600€.

The 2016 edition of the Roadburn festival in Tilburg, The Netherlands, is now in the history books. It was the first edition of the festival to be presented at the newly renovated 013 venue, and it boasted a typically impressive and diverse line-up of bands.
While none of the NCS scribes was on hand for this year’s event, we do have beautiful photos of many of the performances, thanks to Kris T. Therrian of 17 seconds photography. We’ve divided these photo collections into four parts, one for each day of the festival, and we’re been rolling them out on successive days here at our site. You can see photos from Day One, Day Two, and Day Three here. Once again, many thanks to Kris for letting us share these memories with you.
For more info about her artistically impressive work, visit these links. Welcome to the Part 14 of our list of the year’s most infectious extreme metal songs. Each day (almost) until the list is finished, I’m posting at least two songs that made the cut. For more details about what this list is all about and how it was compiled, read the introductory post via. To see the selections that preceded the two I’m announcing today, click. Most of the song pairings I’ve selected for this series have had something in common — for example, they’ve shared a similar genre affiliation or at least a common nationality.
But today’s picks are a complete mismatch, like those last two clean socks you find in your drawer that don’t even remotely go together. But I love both these songs, even though it’s a big stretch to include the second one in the list at all. BLACK BREATH This Pacific Northwest band’s 2012 album Sentenced To Life was a big breakout for them. It has received a ton of critical praise and it brought the band a ton of enthusiastic new fans. BadWolf reviewed it for us last March , and then later named it to his list of (the “no clean singing” version), with these words: “Words do not sufficiently describe how much I love this record’s mix of d-beat, thrash, NWOBHM, and Swedish death metal. Seriously, if you have not, go buy this album.
Satisfaction guaranteed.”. (UK-based NCS scribe Andy Synn was present for the November 10 performance of, and in Nottingham, UK, and delivers the following review. Video clips from the show that Andy filmed appear at the end of the review.) Here’s a tip: however heavy you think Gojira are on record, multiply that by a factor of 5 for their live show.
My god, even the melody lines have a brooding heaviness that steps up significantly from their recorded output. They are just a stunning, devastating live act. That being said, all that power would be for nothing if the venue weren’t able to handle it. Nottingham’s own Rescue Rooms has, over the past couple of years, transformed itself into a prime location for metal gigdom – despite the more indiefied aura and clientele of the venue (and accompanying lounge/bar). The stage is big, but intimate; the layout of the venue is (barring one unavoidable supporting pillar) really good for both the taller and shorter members of the crowd (particularly with the balcony above); the PA is powerful and can be incredibly clear in the right hands.
Plus there’s a bar at the back, one in the balcony area, and access to the lounge/bar in the other half of the venue. Three possible sources of alcohol is always a good thing. Earlier today I collected a handful of items I saw and heard in my catching-up time last night, but since posting that round-up I’ve discovered even more new metal that’s worth passing around. The bands featured in this post are: Encrust (U.S.) Trepalium (France), Klone (France), and Unfathomable Ruination (UK). ENCRUST Okay, first thing you should do is click to see a bigger copy of that stupendous cover art up there. Is that not killer? It’s the cover for From Birth To Soil, the debut album by a Chicago quintet who call themselves.
The artwork was created by Ryan Kasparian (whose work we’ve featured elsewhere on NCS) and Chris Angelucci. Not coincidentally those two happen to be one of Encrust’s two guitarists and the band’s vocalist, respectively. From Birth To Soil was released by last week, and on the same day the band premiered a lyric video for one of the album’s tracks, “Engine of Deceit”. I only caught up with the video today, and I’m really digging the music and the lyrics. The song is a big, swaggering, brawling hybrid of sludge/stoner riffs, pile-driving percussion, and death-metal vocals. There might be some way to avoid headbanging to this song, but it would probably require severing all the nerves to your neck muscles. Is a French business devoted to organizing and promoting musical performances and releasing music, with distribution provided by Season of Mist.
Their name has been associated with a number of bands we’ve featured at NCS over the years. This morning I discovered that they’ve released an 18-track sampler of music from Klonosphere bands for free download. The sampler includes music from five bands we’ve featured at NCS (each of these names are links that will take you to our features about them): These bands are all so good — and their music is so diverse — that it bodes well for everything else on this sampler. I haven’t listened to the whole thing yet, but I did pick out a few songs at random from bands whose names were new to me.
I’ll stream those after the jump and provide a link for the download. Too infrequently, we write about music that we pick out for listening based solely on the album cover art, not knowing anything about the music itself. Last July we did that for an album called Black Days by a French band called Klone. To crib from what we wrote about the album back then: Well, it’s not my usual cuppa tea, which tends toward the more skull-pulping leaves grown on the jagged crags of Tartarus. For one thing, there’s a lot of more-or-less clean singing. But, unexpectedly, I’m really diggin Klone. At a very high level (like, from space), the music straddles a line between the darker side of progressive metal and Chevelle-style hard rock. The instrumentalists are sharp and technically impressive, and even when his vocals are clean, Yann Ligner has an invigorating edge to his voice. The songs cover a wide range, from crosses between doom and prog, to melodic headbanging anthems, to dark dreams of hypnotic ambiance.
Today, we have some news to report about Klone: First, they’ve released a brand new two-part single called The Eye of the Needle that’s available for free download — and it’s absolutely worth hearing. Second, we came across a recent official video for one of the songs from Black Days, and it’s absolutely worth seeing. (more after the jump.). Yes, it’s time again for another installment in our irregular “Eye-Catchers” series.
In case you’ve forgotten, this is both an ongoing experiment and a vehicle for discovering new music. The experiment is designed to test the completely illogical hypothesis that cool album art tends to correlate with cool music. There’s really no reason why the two should go together, but in our experience, they do go together more often than not. Of course, our experience is completely random and anecdotal, with no statistical significance behind it at all, and undoubtedly the day will come when we’ll see a cool cover and then run for the vomitorium after we start listening to the tunes. But since we started this experiment back in April, most of our test cases have validated the hypothesis. This experiment also provides a way for us to explore new music that we otherwise might not discover.
We see eye-catching album art, and based on nothing but that, we go listen to the music. As we explained in an earlier post, as a way of picking new music, it’s like throwing a dart at a dartboard or putting a quarter in a slot machine and pulling the handle. It makes no logical sense, except there’s so much new music from so many new bands out in the world that randomization sometimes seems as good a way as any to make choices. Today we’ve got two test cases — two bands we had never heard before.
The first one is a band from Poitiers, France, called Klone. They recently released their third full-length album, Black Days, on Season of Mist. The album cover is at the top of this post.

The second one is an unsigned band from Oregon called Arkhum, and they’re on the verge of releasing their first album, Anno Universum, in August. How did these bands fare in our Eye-Catchers test? Read on after the jump to find out (and, for your trouble, we’ll have some music for you to hear.).
May 2014 contact / help Track Name: Where Here we are, another day in another goddamn year Have you changed at all from spring to fall at winter, or does it not really matter? Your leaves bloom vibrantly and every year more strong But all the same the leaves will fall once nights start to get long It's just another day, another year, and more The months and years don't feel so different anymore Where do the years go?
The time to leave has come. The end is near, across the dark line. Behind the life You swallow my breath, and you digest my soul You give me no choice, it's too late Death starts to dance The end, the end is near.
And nothing can make me come back Give up the ghost You swallow my breath, and digest my soul You give me no choice, it's too late Death starts to dance Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/klone/black-days/danse-macabre.html Teeth falling out, the rhythm will guide me to you One last dance to end with me. My blood's freezing and I give up the ghost Conceive the infinity and get a taste of life But is it to late? Remorse have no time to exist The unforgettable forgotten. Everything disappears forever Rodent carrions, the funeral march is on!
Teeth falling out, the rhythm will guide me to you One last dance to end with me. My blood's freezing and I give up the ghost Give up the ghost RECOMMENDED VIDEO.
