Iced Earth mastermind, Jon Schaffer, has  developed a new project, Sons of Liberty, with the purpose of spreading awareness about the current state of affairs worldwide. Schaffer’s goal for this project is not to sell records, t-shirts or tickets, but rather wake people up and to get them to start researching and talking with each other. The album hits stores today and features a lengthy and very detailed booklet with stellar content. The brand new website www.sons-of-liberty.net is now active, so be sure to head over now to find out what this message is all about.
Schaffer further states: “I’m proud to finally see the physical release of Brush-Fires of The Mind happen. This is all about the message, so please spread the word!”
Check out the new video where Schaffer discusses the concept behind the song “Jekyll Island”, and the book it’s based on – a core principle to the topics covered in the band’s lyrical content. Also, catch a special interview with Schaffer and G. Edward Griffin (author of The Creature From Jekyll Island). 
New England’s longstanding metal/hardcore outfit, Hell Within, has unleashed their Thorp Records debut, God Grant Me Vengeance, available now through the Thorp webstore at: http://thorprecords.com/store.  The new full-length – the band’s third overall – can be streamed in its entirety exclusively at TheGauntlet.com, for a preview of the ferocious new album.
God Grant Me Vengeance was recorded at Damage Studios in Massachusetts, with engineer/producer, Pete Rutcho (Bury Your Dead, Unearth).  The new record was produced by Hell Within and Rutcho, and artwork comes courtesy of Hell Within vocalist, J.J. Long.
