Infamous Norwegian black metal band Gorgoroth have announced the departure of yet another vocalist. Singer Thomas ‘Pest’ Kronenes was recently kicked out of the band by founding member and guitarist Roger ‘Infernus’ Tiegs as declared in an official statement released by Gorgoroth on Aug. 21.
Gorgoroth have gone through a ton of musicians during their 20-year career, with seven drummers, seven bassists and four lead vocalists having been with the band, not including the 13 strictly touring members of the black metal legends. Gorgoroth began with vocalist Jan Åge Solstad, or ‘Hat,’ keeping the singer from 1992-1995. Pest then joined the band from 1995-1997, eventually being replaced by the legendary Gaahl, whose birth name is Kristian Eivind Espedal. After a dispute with Infernus, Gaahl made his departure from the band in 2007, allowing Pest to join the band once again the following year.
Gorgoroth have now recruited Hoest of fellow Norwegian black metal band Taake for Gorgoroth’s upcoming South American tour dates, with Triumfall vocalist ‘Atteringer’ set to enter the studio with Gorgoroth when the band being recording their next album, ‘Instinctus Bestalis.’
Gorgoroth released the following statement regarding the vocalist switch:
Out of respect for and loyalty to Gorgoroth’s audience and collaborators, Infernus has kicked Pest out of the band, effective immediately. This after Pest informed the band that he would not be prioritizing doing the upcoming Latin American tour after all, just two weeks before the band was set to depart for Brazil. Infernus has decided that the tour will go on as planned, though, and Hoest of Taake will replace Pest as vocalist on the tour starting on September 7, 2012. As for the next Gorgoroth studio album Instinctus Bestalis, vocal duties will be handled by a Serbian Satanist known as Atterigner, of the band Triumfall (Forces of Satan Records).

James Schmid from Waterloo, Ontorio. Alter Bridge provides everything you'd expect from a rock radio hit, while also giving die hard AB fans everything they expect from their beloved band with My Champion.
The song opens with a guitar riff reminiscent of Def Leppards "Photograph" before hitting you square in the face with a "heavy for radio" sound that remains catchy without disappointing their "we like it fast and hard" fans. Their fan base, and music ranges in such a wide spectrum, it…

Atlanta-based indie rock trio Mansell has released the official music video for their single "Ghost." The track comes for their latest record Mantra, an eight-song offering that landed in the iTunes Top 100 Alt Chart and led the band to a support slot with Butch Walker earlier this year.
The video was conceptualized by a friend of the band, John Gray. "We all feel like kin to one another, so the understanding and chemistry there on multiple levels was a comfort in letting another artist interpret your music emotionally the way John did," says vocalist Holden Fincher. "He essentially dove into the song for an extensive period, and analyzed it in depth. He would call or we’d be together and he would just say how many times he had really listened to that song to really breathe it in and know it, and we’d discuss every little thing about it. The emotional pulls of the song itself, as well as who we are as artists, and what the project ‘Mantra’ was to us were put …
