Mia Coldheart, Klara Force: Crucified Barbara - Stream the new album "In the Red"

Scandinavia's leading all-lady hard rock/heavy metal outfit, Crucified Barbara, has teamed up with to stream the band's upcoming fourth studio album, In the Red, before it drops on September 10 via Despotz Records. Stream In the Red here:

In the Red can be pre-ordered now through the Crucified Barbara web-store at:

The band's Despotz debut was recorded at Studio Music-A-Matic, Gothenburg with producer Chips Kiesby and engineer Henryk Lip. Artwork for album number four comes courtesy of Stockholm, Sweden artist Erik Rovanpera.

Dealing with topics like misogyny and animal rights, Crucified Barbara calls In the Red"the best thing we've ever done musically. We have always been shocked by injustice and oppression, and this time, our opinions have taken an even bigger place in the songwriting."

Earlier this year, Crucified Barbara launched a music video for the track "To Kill a Man" on YouTube, stating, "One fifth of all the world's women have been raped or assaulted in their lifetime. The dark statistics became the basis for the song 'To Kill a Man' and our most important message of the video. The production company 11Frames has captured our vision perfectly, and we are proud that we take the opportunity lifting heavy topics such as violence and sexism with a really heavy hard rock video."

Crucified Barbara formed in 1998 in Stockholm, Sweden with punk as a first inspiration, which can still be found as a presence today. However, throughout the years the quartet has evolved towards a harder, heavier and more contrast-filled rock sound, mixing elements of thrash, sleaze and hard rock.

Over the course of its 15-plus year existence, Crucified Barbara has toured alongside and supported such acclaimed acts as In Flames, Sepultura, Motorhead, Backyard Babies, Doro and more, while touring extensively across Europe. The band has also visited Russia, Australia and both South and North America.

Crucified Barbara will head out for a lengthy European tour in support of In the Red this fall.
Stay tuned for more information on Crucified Barbara and In the Red, out this week on Despotz.

Simona Soddu: My resonator guitar (Down to whiskey - Eric Sardinas)

A quick video just to show off this guitar that I'm selling. I bought it years ago because I'm big fan of Eric Sardinas, but I never really learned how to play with a slide -nor how to sing properly-. My good excuse is that I've never found a perfect slide for my little pinky :) even the smallest size is too big for me.. anyway, enjoy!
