Barren Earth - The Rains Begin

Barren Earth is a Finnish progressive death metal band from Helsinki, and was formed in 2007. The group's music is a combination of death metal, progressive rock and some folk music, pulling influence from the different groups each member is associated with. Forming from the members of such well-known groups in Finland, Barren Earth is sometimes referred to as a "supergroup". Since their formation, the band has released one EP and two full-length albums.

Members of Barren Earth are or have been engaged to several bands among the years, including: Mikko Kotamäki – Swallow the Sun, Alghazanth; Olli-Pekka Laine – Amorphis, Mannhai, Chaosbreed; Kasper Mårtenson – Amorphis, Mannhai; Janne Perttilä – Rytmihäiriö, Circus of Flesh; Marko Tarvonen – Moonsorrow, Chaosbreed; Sami Yli-Sirniö – Kreator, Waltari.

Barren Earth has been visiting Tune Of The Day a few times already, a band that we really like and this is starting out good with todays tune.

Todays tune "The Rains Begin" is taken from the second full-length album "The Devil's Resolve" The album is said to contain even more 1970s progressive influences while keeping the brutality associated with the band. The Devil's Resolve is to be released on March 12, 2012

The Japanese version will include 2 bonus tracks: Martyrs Of Devotion and The Passage Unfolds, the former of which can also be found on the Special Edition, whereas the latter will be a Japan-only track.


Passing of the Crimson Shadows
The Rain Begins
Vintage Warlords
As It Is Written
The Dead Exiles
Oriental Pyre
White Field
Where All Stories End
Martyrs of Devotion (Special Edition only)
World in Haze (Special Edition only)

The Special Edition should in all likelihood be released at the same time as the regular version, but the vinyl will probably appear a bit later.

First music video taken from Barren Earth's second album The Devils Resolve.
The track name is The Rains Begin and is composed by Kasper Mårtenson.
Lyrics were provided by our friend Jussi K. Niemelä.

Rammstein - Mein Land

Rammstein is a German Industrial Metal band from Berlin, formed in 1994.The band consists of members Till Lindemann (lead vocals), Richard Z. Kruspe (lead guitar and backing vocals), Paul H. Landers (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Oliver "Ollie" Riedel (bass guitar), Christoph "Doom" Schneider (drums and electronic percussion) and Christian "Flake" Lorenz (keyboards). They are widely accepted as part of the Neue Deutsche Härte scene (alongside others such as Oomph!, Eisbrecher, and Die Krupps) and they are the genre's most successful band, achieving worldwide fame. Their songs are usually in German, but they have also performed songs entirely or partially in other languages such as English, Spanish, French and Russian. As of 2009, they have sold over 15 million records worldwide. Rammstein's live shows are famous for their pyrotechnic performance and theatrics, earning them awards from many countries, including The United States of America. Since their formation in 1994, Rammstein has had no changes in their band line-up nor have any members left the band. The band have stated they were not named after the Ramstein airshow disaster.

A full European tour in support of Made in Germany has been confirmed that will span from November 2011 to March 2012, as well as a North American tour that will span from April–May 2012. The Swedish industrial band Deathstars will be the support band during the first leg of the European tour.

Rammstein have achieved particular fame for their hugely over-the-top stage show, using so many pyrotechnics that fans eventually coined the motto "Other bands play, Rammstein burns!" (a quip at Manowar's song "Kings of Metal", which states, "other bands play, Manowar kills"). After an accident in the Arena in Berlin where some burning decoration parts fell (27 September 1996) the band used professionals to handle the pyrotechnics; Lindemann is now a licensed pyrotechnician who spends entire songs engulfed head-to-toe in flames. He has suffered multiple burns on his ears, hair and arms.

The heat is so intense that on occasion, people have been carried out of Rammstein concerts suffering from heat exhaustion and lighting gantries have been seen glowing red-hot from repeated fireball hits. Nobody was carried out during this show as far as i am aware. The variety of the pyrotechnics can be seen in a recent concert playlist, which includes such items as "Lycopodium Masks", "Glitterburst Truss", "Pyrostrobes", "Comets", "Flash Trays" and "Mortar Hits".

Even this time Rammstein delivered a spectacular show, a great band to see live, i must if you dig a heavy burning show.

Deathstars - Metal

Deathstars is a Swedish band from Stockholm that perform industrial and gothic metal. Formed in 2000, the group are noted for their dark horror-themed lyrics, pessimistic and misanthropic social commentary, distinctive trademark face paint, dark stage uniforms and physical appearances that correspond to gothic fashion. They have released three full-length studio albums; Synthetic Generation (2002 in Europe and 2003 in North and South America), Termination Bliss (2006) and Night Electric Night (2009). Deathstars have supported live acts by bands such as Korn and Cradle of Filth, the latter band which was in part inspiration for Deathstars. Deathstars is supporting Rammstein on their Made In Germany 1995-2011 tour. And last week they did play at a sold out "The Globe" here in Stockholm.

The guys in the band seemed to be in really good mood, good to play at home, I think, and it was evident once they got up on stage, good gig.

The current lineup of the band consists primarily of members from Swordmaster, a black metal project that has former members of Dissection, and Ophthalamia. The band currently consists of Whiplasher Bernadotte (lead vocals), Nightmare Industries (guitar and keyboards), Skinny Disco (bass guitar, backing vocals), Vice (drums) and Cat Casino (guitar).

Here are some pictures from the gig, this time it's from Micke Sandström's lens!

Todays tune "Metal" is one of two brand new songs off Deathstars' best of compilation "The Greatest Hits On Earth".

Clawfinger - Biggest & The Best

Today Im going to break some thingies here :)
We usually do classics on sundays but I saw a video on a friends FB, and I really loved it.

This is a Swedish rap/metal, kinda industry metal music, that I really like. They have cocky lyrics and good ones too.

For givin u an example this is the beggining of this tune, its sorta sarcastic :D

"Nobody is perfect but I'm pretty fucking close
and I'm here to give you all a heavy heavenly dose
I think you'd better listen 'cos I know who you are
and I think that you should treat me like a superstar
because I'm more than just a human I'm a gift to all of you
and I'm here to make sure that my message gets through
I wonder if you're really all as dumb as you look
or are you smart enough to learn the rules in my book
I hope you understand that the knowledge I bring
puts me in the position of a god or a king
'cos I'm blessed with the gift of the magic touch"

Clawfinger are currently working on a re-recording of their debut album Deaf Dumb Blind. The plan is to re-record all the songs from that album and bring in guests. Zak Tell has stated they were speaking with the members of Rammstein and Peter Tagtgren from the bands Pain and Hypocrisy.

Current members are,
Zak Tell on Lead vocals, lyrics
Jocke Skog on Keyboards, vocals
Bård Torstensen on Rhythm guitar
André Skaug on Bass
Micke Dahlén on Drums

Okey lets DIG!

Cheers, Thetania
