Rhapsody – Change Name To Rhapsody Of Fire

Due to copyright and trademark issues the band formerly known as RHAPSODY has changed its name. The band members consider this a great new start, reflecting the emboldened and increasingly grandiose direction that their music has taken. “The power of the dragonflame will burn brighter than ever before,” says guitarist/songwriter Luca Turilli. Keyboardist/songwriter Alex Staropoli adds, “The name RHAPSODY OF FIRE better represents the energy that has always been present in this band and its music.”

With a new record company in Magic Circle Music, a new tour planned and a new album on the way, RHAPSODY OF FIRE will continue to explore musical fantasy worlds with the precision musicianship and unique symphonic concepts that their fans have come to expect and adore. Fresh on the heels of the band’s first live album release, Live In Canada 2005 – The Dark Secret, a new name and renewed vigor ensure that RHAPSODY OF FIRE still hold the passion and power that have always been associated with their music.

Non Phixion – Break Up, Members Persue Solo Projects

After a successful, influential and critically acclaimed ten year career, New York’s underground hip hop staple NON PHIXION has decided the time has come to call it a day. NON PHIXION released their first single back in 1996 and never looked back. The next several years saw the release of multiple NON PHIXION 12″ singles, but it was their 2002 full-length release “The Future Is Now,” with its infectious beats and raw uncut rhymes that finally put NON PHIXION on the map as a force to be reckoned with.NON PHIXION soon developed a strong following in the United States, Europe and Japan through word of mouth and extensive touring. Then in 2004, NON PHIXION released their highly successful “The Green CD/DVD,” solidifying their worldwide dedicated fan base.

Unfortunately all good things come to an end. Within any group, team or unit each individual must pull their own weight for that unit to exist and prosper. After years of dealing with and concealing Goretex‘s general unreliability and total lack of interest in touring, writing and recording music with NON PHIXION, the rest of the group has reluctantly opted to bring it to a dignified end in order to maintain the group’s integrity. Continuing on without any one member of this group would be bullshit. With that being said, Ill Bill, Sabac Red & DJ Eclipse have decided to focus on their solo efforts and projects. Ill Bill‘s Uncle Howie Records has recently joined forces with Perfect Game Recording Co./Warner Music Group to release Ill Bill‘s next solo album/DVD “The Hour of Reprisal.” The album will be released in early 2007 and follows up Ill Bill‘s debut solo effort “What’s Wrong With Bill?” which came out in 2004. Ill Bill is also a member of a new group called LA COKA NOSTRA, which in addition to Bill features HOUSE OF PAIN alumni Everlast, Danny Boy, and DJ Lethal, and newcomers Slaine & Big LeftIll Bill also has plans to release a “Live at CBGB’s” DVD later this year. Sabac Red is currently working on his next solo album and DVD entitled “The Ritual” which will feature production by Necro, Ill Bill, and others. This is the long awaited follow up to his 2004 solo effort “Sabacolypse.” 2007 will also see the release of DJ Eclipse‘s “Halftime Show” DVD highlighting interviews and freestyles with guests from his radio show which can be heard every Wednesday night on 89.1 WNYU from 10:30PM to 1AM in NYC or at www.wnyu.org. Both projects will be released on Uncle Howie Records. And for all those bummed out NON PHIXION fans out there, the good news is that Bill, Sabac and Eclipse will definitely continue to work closely together live in concert and on future projects.

Ozzy Osbourne – Talks To MTV About Ozzfest

The following article was originally posted over at MTV.com:

Ozzy Osbourne thought 10 Ozzfests were enough. He’d reached his limit. And so, before last year’s Ozzfest the heavy-metal festival’s 10th rendition concluded, Osbourne announced he’d be retiring from his namesake tour. He’d also be taking a break from the road for a while.

But here he is, standing at the foot of Ozzfest‘s main stage with the launch of this year’s Ozzfest just 48 hours away. The music icon’s surveying things inspecting the lights, the monitors, the positioning of the amplifiers. In about 20 minutes, he’ll be joined onstage by guitarist Zakk Wylde, drummer Mike Bordin and bassist Blasko for his first official Ozzfest rehearsal.

“I wanted to retire,” he insisted. “But that lasted half a year. I was bored to death, and I wanted to come back on the road again. I’m not complaining about it, but the downside [to doing Ozzfest] is I never get a chance to go on vacation. Whenever we do go on vacation, it’s winter. So this year, I tried to get off the Ozzfest, and [my wife and the festival’s architect] Sharon said, ‘OK.’ But then one guy spoke to one guy and said it wouldn’t be Ozzfest if Ozzy isn’t there. So [we compromised]. Sharon‘s idea was to do a couple of headliners on the second stage, and I said, ‘That’s great. It’s right in the midst of the audience.’ “

This summer’s Ozzfest, which wraps up August 13 in West Palm Beach, Florida, will make stops in 27 cities, with Osbourne scheduled to take the stage for 13 of them four mainstage appearances and nine on the tour’s smaller second stage. But might this as the rumor mill suggests be Ozzy‘s last Ozzfest?

“I will always be involved in it in some way, as long as it carries along and as long as I’m alive,” he said. “It’s my wife and I’s creation. People say to me, ‘What’s the trick? How do you do it?’ And I can’t answer that question. I’m just so grateful and happy [the fans] come out to see the show.”

Talking to Ozzy, you get the sense that, after 11 years, he’s sort of astounded at Ozzfest‘s mammoth growth. It has become an unstoppable force, surviving while other festivals have come and gone.

“I can’t believe it’s been 11 years,” he said, reflecting on the tour’s tradition. “I couldn’t believe it was 10 years. You know, every year, I ask my wife, ‘How long do you think this is going to go on for?’ But it’s out of my control now, and it’s rolling along on its own. You know, I can’t call this work. I love it. What I’m really happy about, what has happened from Ozzfest, is it’s been a great diving board for other bands. I mean, KORN, SYSTEM OF A DOWN the list goes on and on. And that’s what my job is: to keep the machine rolling.”

After this year’s Ozzfest, Osbourne plans to start working on his 15th solo LP his first record’s worth of original compositions in five years. “We just started working on some ideas, Zakk and the boys,” he explained. “We’re putting a bunch of ideas together, and Zakk‘s playing is just unbelievable. His new album [Shot to Hell, which hits stores September 19] is fantastic. It is going to blow everything else off the face of the world. So when we finish Ozzfest, I’m going to start writing. It’s going to be the first one I’ve written and recorded sober. That’s weird. The one thing about having a swift drink is it gets the old imagination going, you know?”

Ozzy‘s mindset going into the sessions is a positive one, he said. “I’m 57 years of age, and I never thought I’d live this long,” he joked. “I think I’m the luckiest man in the world. I’ve survived, both physically and professionally … I think.”

System of a Down – Talk About Side Projects

The following article was originally posted over at MTV.com:

SYSTEM OF A DOWN‘s loyal fans know by now that when the band’s mainstage stint on this summer’s Ozzfest winds down August 13 in West Palm Beach, Florida, the boys will be going on an indefinite hiatus, affording the heavy-metal quartet’s members time to focus on several side interests. SYSTEM are hoping the “very long break” will recharge their creative batteries, thus strengthening the group’s impending studio efforts.

The band insists that going on hiatus doesn’t mean the demise of SYSTEM, despite those persistent rumors suggesting the end is nigh. So what, then, does the future hold for SYSTEM‘s various parts post-Ozzfest?

Well, for guitarist Daron Malakian and bassist Shavo Odadjian, it’s SCARS ON BROADWAY, a fresh collective that’s still very much in progress but should start working on material this fall.

“It’s going to be another band that both me and Shavo are in, and we’re going to try and go places we haven’t with SYSTEM,” Malakian explained. “Each [SYSTEM] bandmember has his own thing he wants to do. Shavo has films he plans on working on too. So we all have artistic itches we want to get through, and I think these are healthy ways to do it. We’ve been around for 12 years, so it’s nice for us to break a little free and come back and hopefully appreciate [being in SYSTEM] more someday. We’re not putting any timelines on it.

“[SCARS] are going to go into a lot of different fields that SYSTEM haven’t gone into,” he continued. “I mean, heavy metal is an influence, but it’s not the focus of SYSTEM OF A DOWN. There will be metal elements in SCARS, but that’s not what’s going to define the music.”

For Odadjian, the SYSTEM vacation means returning to the studio with his good pal RZA, the mastermind behind WU-TANG CLAN. “We’ve been messing around in the studio, and I worked on a track that will be on the next Raekwon record, [Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2,]” he said. “With RZA, we have become good friends, and we’re in the studio together all the time. There’s a collaboration with the GZA which will be coming out soon, but we’re not sure when. We’ve been working on it the last four months and will start preproduction in Los Angeles [in the fall].”

The GZA/ RZA/ Shavo collaboration’s been named, but Odadjian isn’t giving up the goods yet. He’d like to wait until “we’ve got a few things on tape” before unveiling the project’s moniker.

Drummer John Dolmayan plans to take his obsession with comic books online with a new Web site, TorpedoComics.com. Not only will he be selling comic books, action figures and movies via the site, he’d like to host creative seminars with some of the writers and illustrators he’s loved since his childhood, as well as some of today’s leading artists.

“I am a big comic-book fan and always have been,” he said. “It’s sort of my second passion, next to drumming. So when I discovered we were going to be taking some time off, I thought, ‘What would be better [for me] to do than form this company?’ I just thought it would be fun.”

This summer, fans may notice that Dolmayan is hammering away on a new drum kit, which took him three years to assemble. The drummer enlisted 22 of his favorite comic-book artists including Jim Lee, Bill Sienkiewicz, Simon Bisley, Kevin Eastman and Neal Adams to contribute illustrations that he then had coated onto the kit’s various pieces. “A lot of the artists were fans of the band, or their kids were, and everybody involved I’m a big fan of,” he said.

Like Malakian and Odadjian,SYSTEM‘s intensely stylish, soft-spoken, Afro-sporting frontman Serj Tankian will be working on his own music this fall too. (He’ll also be working with FAIR TO MIDLAND and SLOW MOTION REIGN, the newest additions to the roster of his label, Serjical Strike.) Tankian plans to release his solo debut in late 2007.

“I’ve been writing it my whole life,” he said. “I’m really excited about it, and I have the same energy that I had when we were recording our first record. I have more than enough songs, but I’m also trying other methods of arrangements and tricking myself into doing things that I’ve never done to add to the dynamics, diversity and hopefully potency of the record itself.”

Tankian said the record is an all-engrossing experience for him, as he’s arranging all the musical elements to each of the songs. “I’m writing the drum parts, the guitars, the bass, the pianos, the strings, the vocals everything from scratch,” he said. “I will be bringing different friends in to do live stuff; I’d love to work with John on a few tracks. But I am literally writing every part, so I know exactly what I want out of the songs. It’s taking up the majority of my time. It’s still rock, but it definitely takes different directions, different vibes and different types of melodies and rhythms that System haven’t touched upon.”

And what say ye, Serj, of SYSTEM‘s impending hiatus?

SYSTEM OF A DOWN are always there for us, whenever we want to be there for SYSTEM OF A DOWN,” he said.

Stolen Babies – Sign To The End Records

The End Records have signed extravagant gothic/metal/carnival/rock ensemble STOLEN BABIES.

STOLEN BABIES are a unique band in their own right, a talented act that has amassed a following with their energetic and freakish live shows. The band’s musical style is a cauldron of ideas that serves up a wonderful variety of vibrant styles meshed together into a pure chaotic frenzy. And it works.

With elements of gothic rock, industrial, punk and metal brewing within, it’s not hard to see why the band has been able to impress fans and critics who have stumbled upon their mischievously power-packed numbers. The band’s well-received debut release ‘There Be Squabbles Ahead’ will be released in digipak format on The End Records on October 3rd, 2006.

About signing with The End Records, STOLEN BABIES comment, “Signing with The End became the obvious choice for STOLEN BABIES. As a band with a very strong artistic vision we knew what we were looking for in a label and The End was the missing ingredient in our cupcake of madness!”
