‘Far From The Sanctuary’, the brand new song and music video from Swedish female fronted metallers Metalite, has been launched. This is the first single from the group’s upcoming album, “Biomechanicals”, that will be released on 25th of October via AFM Records. Check it out below.

The future is close: And she looks pretty overwhelming. Two years after their exciting debut „Heroes In Time“, the Swedish Melodic Metal renewers Metalite return with a new singer and a giant stroke. This band could be the new heroes of Modern Metal – trendsetting, epic and of highest quality. Of course, we have been knowing for long that the Swedish do have a hand for successful Metal. But an album with the quality of „Biomechanicals“ is even for this country a rarity. Influenced by the concept of bands like Within Temptation, the quintet from Stockholm reinvents classic Melodic Metal – and unleashes a storm of power, monumentality and zeitgeist, that you cannot escape. „Biomechanicals“ continues the high level from their debut and turns everything to 11, what stood on 10 before: A richer production, stronger songwriting and an elusive and mysterious aura distinguishes „Biomechanicals“ from everything you already know about Melodic Metal.

With Metalite’s expertly use of electronic elements, influenced by the Trance Era of early 21st century, sphaeric layers mix with flirring sequences and stoic beats fit like a second skin for the massive, melodic and outrageous catchy soundwall. But also the new singer Erica Ohlsson shapes that energetic sound. Continue reading »

Stryper guitarist Oz Fox will likely have to undergo several medical procedures to shrink the tumors that were discovered after his onstage seizure more than a year ago.

According to Oz‘s wife, Annie Lobért, the tumor behind the ear has grown from 2.2 by 1.7 centimeters on August 12, 2018 to 2.7 by 1.7 centimeters on July 23, 2019. Fox‘s doctor has recommended radiation as soon as possible because if the tumor grows to three centimeters, it will be no longer able to be treated with radiation. If the tumor grows beyond three centimeters, an operation to remove it will cause facial palsy (part of Oz‘s face will appear to droop) and it will be a tough and risky surgery to recover from. The radiation side effects will give Ozp  ermanent hearing loss completely in one ear and possibly facial palsy. There is also a tiny risk the tumor will grow from radiation. But if the tumor isn’t dealt with, it will continue to grow and cause hearing loss, balance, vision and spinal problems.

As for the tumor in the back of Oz‘s brain, it has grown from 27.77 millimeters by 30.53 millimeters on August 12, 2018 to 35.1 by 33.8 millimeters on July 23, 2019. That tumor is in the area where left side of his arms, hands and body operate. The risk to remove it will affect the upper left motor function and potential ability to recognize faces, objects. This tumor cannot be treated by radiation alone, like the first one. Oz will first undergo a biopsy to find out what kind of tumor it is. If surgery looks like the only option, Oz will then undergo a combination of chemotherapy and radiation to stop the growth. Continue reading »
