Industrial metal kings Die Krupps and Heavy Metal legend Ross The Boss Friedman, famous from his stints in Manowar, The Dictators, and his solo career have teamed up for a new single, out now via Cleopatra Records. “No More Heroes” is a cover of the 1977 track from The Stranglers, which The Dictators supported on their No More Heroes UK tour. The song, which name-checks several recently passed historical figures, is a fitting tribute to the also recently passed Stranglers keyboardist Dave Greenfield, one of the last heroes of British rock, who died in May of this year from complications related to COVID-19. The single will be featured on a forthcoming full-length effort from Die Krupps to be released in 2021, so jam it out now!

Requiem filmed an acoustic version of “Sticks and Stones and Her Lovely Bones” at Indigital Studios in Santa Cruz, CA, which can be seen here and here, off their new album The Unexplainable Truth, out via Cleopatra Records.
Schecter-sponsored guitarist and vocalist Jacklyn Paulette states, “This song was definitely interesting to play on acoustic guitars, but I think playing it this way really brought out the guitar melodies that tend to get a little buried when everything is in full blast.”
“A large portion of this song was actually written on the acoustic guitar, and it was later dissected and translated to the electric form you hear on the album,” adds guitarist Ryan Heggum.
