ARCADEA (MASTODON, ZRUDA, WITHERED) SIGN WITH RELAPSE RECORDS;

ARCADEA (MASTODON, ZRUDA, WITHERED) SIGN WITH RELAPSE RECORDS;

NEW ALBUM OUT JUNE 16TH

April 19, 2017
? Los Angeles, CA – Hailing from the fringes of the cosmos, Arcadea, will make their arrival known in 2017 with a debut, self-titled album due out on June 16th. Today, the synth/psych band has announced they have inked a deal with Relapse Records to release the record. Pre-orders and new music will be announced in the coming weeks.
Stream Arcadea?s previously released song ?Gas Giant? now at https://youtu.be/Y36PqRQ3Jc0.
Arcadea was born when drummer-vocalist Brann Dailor (Mastodon) teamed up with upside-down guitarist & keyboardist Core Atoms (Zruda) to create a synth-laden progressive, heavy psych band. Adding guitarist Raheem Amlani (Withered) on synth, the three recorded their visionary,10 song synth odyssey at Orange Peel Studios in Atlanta, GA. The self-titled debut record will see its release via Relapse Records this June.
Unlike their other bands, Arcadea uses only keyboards in a unique blend of crushing, organic drums and psychedelic synthesizers. The music is at once electronic but not electronica, synthetic but not processed, heavy but not metal.
The album envisions a future 5 billion years from now, where the impending collision of galaxies creates a new order of planets. Where cold, distant moons pledge alliance to new suns and expanding gas giants implode into black holes. Ancient drones, forever adrift, record toxic tales of love between dying stars. Where lifeforms in suspended animation, dream among the ice rings of Saturn and cosmic war wages among gods and planets. It is in this universe that Arcadea reign supreme as the last surviving space wizards since the final extinction.

SUPERJOINT will be touring in support of their Caught Up In The Gears Of Application full-length.  The record, which Loudwire crowned, a raw exercise in riffing devastation and swirling, erratic tempo shifts,” is SUPERJOINT‘s first proper studio offering in over a decade. Recorded at the famed Nodferatu’s Lair, produced by SUPERJOINT co-founder Philip H. Anselmo (Down, Pantera, Scour, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Arson Anthem etc.) and Stephen Berrigan (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod, Haarp, Classhole, etc.), and mastered by Scott Hull (Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Pig Destroyer) at Visceral Sounds, the thirty-eight-minute bruiser spews forth an unapologetic crossover of hardcore punk, metal, and uncompromising, antagonistic, New Orleans-style angst.
Various order bundles, including limited edition vinyl options and authentic woodwork from their “Caught Up In The Gears Of Application” video are available via Housecore at THIS LOCATION. For digital orders, point your browser HERE where you can also stream the record in full.
SUPERJOINT was resurrected in 2015 after the original band broke up a decade earlier. At the behest of the late Corey Mitchell, co-founder of The Housecore Horror Film Festival, SUPERJOINT founders Anselmo, Jimmy Bower (Down, Eyehategod), and Kevin Bond (Christ Inversion, Artimus Pyledriver et al) joined forces with longtime comrades, drummer José “Blue” Gonzalez (Warbeast, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals), and bassist Stephen Taylor (Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Woven Hand, 16 Horse Power). A new era of the band was born. After just two tours, new material followed culminating in the scathing sounds of Caught Up In The Gears Of Application.
 “[Philip H. Anselmo’s] tenacity seems undeniable, and that spirit shines through Caught Up In The Gears Of Application from beginning to end.” – Blabbermouth
 “SUPERJOINT are looking to add a vicious and philosophical third chapter to the band’s legacy.” – Loudwire
“…a great mix of southern rock and hardcore punk… if Down ever got really angry and decided to knock out a punk record, this is what I imagine it would sound like.” – Metal Injection on the title track
 
“This is gnarly and nasty… the music is as potent as ever. A storming return. – The Sludgelord
 
SUPERJOINT‘s music is like a poison that you want to keep drinking, a spirit that doesn’t age, and never heals – but it’ll kill time. There is creative genius in these guys.” – New Noise Magazine
 “The volatile, acidic savagery that the band is known for is just as present now as it was before they went on hiatus over a decade ago….” – Metal Nexus

MEATWOUND: Decibel Magazine Now Playing “Reproductive Blues” From Magic Bullet-Bound Largo LP

MEATWOUND: Decibel Magazine Now Playing “Reproductive Blues” From Magic Bullet-Bound Largo LP

As MEATWOUND preps their infectious/infected second LP, Largo, for release through Magic Bullet Records in the coming weeks, Decibel Magazine has championed the new album with a stream of its gnarled “Reproductive Blues.”

 Of these “Reproductive Blues,” MEATWOUND Daniel Shook offers, “Fundamentalists and politicians don’t like abortions. They also don’t like birth control or sex education. If you honestly want to stop abortions, those things are proven to reduce abortions more effectively than prayer or highway billboards. It’s almost like they want to keep the world stepping over endless unwanted babies. Round about twenty-three years ago, Initial State made an LP and the song ‘Feast’ has stuck with me ever since. The first line: ‘You would bring another into the vile machine/One more mouth among the billions to hang agape in need’… I think it was the first song I heard that was specifically about overpopulation.”

 Decibel’s intel on Largo includes, “while the record is filthy enough to give you cholera, it’s a fuckfest of bass-powered noiserock and feedback-as-riffage. Something like Coalesce covering Daughters, or maybe it’s the other way around, but not even that really gets at the guts of this stuff.” The report issues that “Reproduction Blues” is, “as blunt and addictive as the remaining six tracks on the album, a bath-salted cruise through some rhythmic, unforgiving wasteland.”

 Allow MEATWOUND to sterilize your “Reproductive Blues” at THIS LOCATION.

 Stream Largo‘s lead track “Séance” at No Clean Singing HERE.

 Largo will be issued through Magic Bullet Records on purple vinyl LP and digital platforms on May 12th; Preorders are available HERE and HERE. Additional audio samples and a video for the album’s “Pigs” will be issued shortly.

 Largo is the second LP offering from MEATWOUND, the outfit’s depraved cast comprised of punk/hardcore scene veterans collectively hailing from the likes of Combatwoundedveteran, Holy Mountain, Headless Dogs, Primate Research, and others. After a successful run in support of their critically-acclaimed Addio debut, the band delivers seven new songs of ungodly sonic devastation with Largo. While a lot of the scuzzy, surging groove of the debut album can be found, the band has pressed down on the accelerator a bit, resulting in faster and more violent-sounding results this time around. The aural attack has once again been captured by Dan Byers at Rock Garden Studio, just south of Largo, with mastering by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound. As with the debut, the visuals have once again been executed by former Florida Man Chris Norris, aka Steak Mtn.

MEATWOUND Live:

5/08/2017 WMNF 88.5 FM radio performance

5/12/2017 American Legion Post 111 – Tampa, FL *Largo release show w/ Thunderclap, Shot

5/13/2017 High Dive – Gainesville, FL w/ Thunderclap, Dozier [info]

FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY ANNOUNCE HEADLINING TOUR TOMBS + MOON TOOTH TO SUPPORT THE GREAT COLLAPSE OUT NOW

FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY ANNOUNCE HEADLINING TOUR
TOMBS + MOON TOOTH TO SUPPORT
THE GREAT COLLAPSE OUT NOW

April 18, 2017 — FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY have announced The Great Collapse North American tour in continued support of their new LP of the same name. Support will come from TOMBS andMOON TOOTH. Dates kick off in early June and stretch through the first week in July. Tickets will go on sale Friday 4/21.

“We’re happy to announce The Great Collapse North American tour,” says vocalist Joe Badolato. “Tombs and Moon Tooth are sick live bands, and make for a fun mixed bill.  A little different than our normal touring partners, but we’re excited to play for some new fans.  Lots of new songs on this one, and a few old ones we haven’t pulled out in years.”

Fit For An Autopsy released The Great Collapse on March 17, 2017 via Entertainment One (eOne) / Good Fight Music in North America and SPV overseas. Initial sales of the album landed the band on a variety of Billboard charts, some of which the first time in the band’s career.The Great Collapse debuted at #6 Hard Music, #9 Indie, #16 Rock and #47 Current Top 200.

Artist Adam Burke was tapped to create the visually stunning cover art seen below.

The Great Collapse is the the band’s fourth full length record, continuing the momentum gained from a solid 200+ days of worldwide touring backing the buzz-worthy release of Absolute Hope Absolute Hell in late 2015, as well The Depression Sessions, a split release with The Acacia Strain and Thy Art Is Murder in 2016.

The crushing music of Fit For An Autopsy is for any fan of extreme metal, as it?s devoid of preachy politics or grandstanding soapboxing, but its sound and fury is absolutely unflinching in purpose. The band expertly blends excessive-force fueled death metal with atmospheric groove and impassioned personal diatribes, reflecting back the dark state of current events. Their fourth album, The Great Collapse, doesn?t waste time with fantasy bullshit or cliché gore horror. Fit For An Autopsy are metal guys, to be certain, but they grew up in the hardcore scene. They embrace the responsibility to put as much devoted purpose into their lyrics and message as they do into their dense, heady, songs, forging a magnificently powerful new post-deathcore.

Hyper Groove Brutality From Japanese Death Metal Legion; Record To Drop This Friday Via Unique Leader

    

Hyper Groove Brutality, the imminent new full-length from long-running Japanese brutal death metal maniacs VOMIT REMNANTS, will make its official decent upon the masses Friday, April 21st via Unique Leader Records.

The band’s first studio output in twelve years was produced by Darren Cesca (Arsis, Vile, Goratory) of House Of Grind Studios and features guest appearances by vocalist Henrik Cranz of Soils Of Fate, guitarist Craig Peters of Deeds Of Flesh and Destroying The Devoid, and guitarist Paul Masvidal of Cynic/ex-Death.

In advance of its release, today Decibel Magazine is streaming the record in its crushing entirety hailing its, “flattening riffs, machinelike drumming, and fearsome guttural vocals.”

Get pulverized by Hyper Groove Brutality, courtesy of Decibel Magazine, atTHIS LOCATION.
Hyper Groove Brutality preorder bundles are currently available HERE. For digital orders, visit the Unique Leader Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION.
 Metal Injection calls Hyper Groove Brutality a, “beast of an album,” while Wonderbox Metal notes, If you like slamming death metal with a brutal, Dying Fetus-styled edge to it then Hyper Groove Brutality is sure to sate your bloodlust.” Dead Rhetoric concurs, “album title as it may, the grooves had better deliver, and you better believe they stand up to the high stakes of the claim over repeated listens.” Adds The Grim Tower, “If you’re looking for the very definition of slimy, goopy gore metal then you’re going to find it here…. It simply fucking rips.”

 VOMIT REMNANTS was forged in 1997. The band’s debut demo, the charmingly titled In The Name Of Vomit, reaped critical acclaim among the death metal underground. Second demo, Brutally Violated, was unleashed the following year and one unreleased track made its way to the Gore Is Your Master compilation released by Razorback Records. VOMIT REMNANTS released their debut full-length, Supreme Entity via Macabre Mementos in May of 1999 and were later invited to play The Ohio Death Fest alongside Dying Fetus, Internal Bleeding, Dehumanized, Devourment, Gorgasm, and many others only further solidifying VOMIT REMNANTS as a proverbial force with which to be reckoned.

 Following various lineup shifts, VOMIT REMNANTS brought their sonic brutality to European stages appearing at Obscene Extreme Fest and Nuclear Storm as well as performing shows in Germany, Holland, Belgium, and Austria. By 2000, the band returned to American soil for a short run of dates with Brodequin before releasing their Indefensible Vehemence EP on Supreme Musick and Macabre Mementos Records that same year.

 Due to internal conflicts, VOMIT REMNANTS disbanded shortly after their American tour. Drummer Keisuke spent the next two-and-a-half years searching for replacement musicians. Guitarist Steve Eagle, bassist Duane Cowan, and vocalist Takanori Fujioka eventually joined the band in 2004 and recorded a two-song promo. They also played the Maryland Deathfest that same year as well as many shows in Japan. Eagle and Cowan would flee VOMIT REMNANTS just one year later however before being replaced by guitarist Kei Ishida and bassist Mitchito Hoshi. With this new lineup the band recorded a three-song promo to shop to labels. Those three tracks would make their way to a three-way split CD with Godless Truth and Carnivorous released by Lacerated Enemy Records. The band later returned to Europe for a tour with Godless Truth. Macabre Mementos Records released VOMIT REMNANTSSupreme Vehemence Discography ’05 which included bonus live footage before joining forces with Unique Leader Records. The band split up again however while recording new songs. The band returned in 2015 stronger than ever and penned the maniacal Hyper Groove Brutality full-length. The wait is finally over.

SOILWORK Officially Announces 25-Year-Old Bastian Thusgaard as Permanent Drummer

For Immediate Release

April 19, 2017

 SOILWORK Officially Announces 25-Year-Old Bastian Thusgaard as Permanent Drummer
 
Witness Bastian Thusgaard’s Permanent Debut at International 2017 Spring/Summer Festivals including Download Paris, Hellfest, Tuska Open Air, Wacken Open Air and More

                                                                                            Photo credit: Marc Duvollet

Visionary Swedish musicians SOILWORK are pleased to officially announce the inclusion of their now permanent drummer, 25-year-old Bastian Thusgaard. Thusgaard has been blazing the kit for the band for the past 10 months, but will make his official debut as a permanent member of the band at their upcoming summer festival performances. See below for a full listing of dates.
 Bastian Thusgaard originally joined the SOILWORK machine as their touring drummer after former full-time drummer Dirk Verbeuren’s departure. Thusgaard began his journey as Verbeuren’s understudy, eventually taking over touring duties for the band full-time in the summer of 2016.
 Watch a video of Thusgaard deftly performing “The Chainheart Machine” with SOILWORK via a Sick Drummer Magazine video here: https://youtu.be/fiYSuQAD50w
 In a band statement, SOILWORK says: “We are super stoked to announce Bastian Thusgaard as our permanent drummer. He’s been touring with us for quite a while and has been nothing short of amazing to work with, both on a musical level and on a personal level. Taking over after Dirk must have been pretty hard, but he has proven, time and time again, through our tours through North America, South America and Europe, that he is the perfect man for the job. Bastian is only 25 years old and already possesses such great groove and fantastic technique. We can’t wait to see, how his ability will take us to the next level while we write our next album. It will be a beast, there’s no doubt about it. We have so much left to say musically and Bastian will be the perfect drummer, to help the band evolve on our constant musical journey. Give Bastian a warm welcome everyone!”
 Bastian Thusgaard adds: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Björn, Sven, David, Sylvain, Markus and everyone else involved in the SOILWORK team for their very warm welcome. I want to thank Dirk for his guidance, support and ability to inspire young drummers like myself, to put in the hours needed in order to make it to this level. He is the reason that I’ve had my life’s best musical experiences during these past ten months. To the fans that I’ve already met around the world and all the wonderful people surrounding me, thank you for your great support and positive feedback. It has truly been overwhelming.
 I am truly honoured to be given the opportunity to continuously work with SOILWORK, a band that I grew up listening to and one of the key elements of my musical education. I am 100% committed to SOILWORK and am looking forward to create music with my childhood heroes and to see what the future will bring. See you all on the road.”
 SOILWORK continue to strive toward excellence no matter the elements that are thrown at them. With several summer festivals quickly approaching and fall just around the corner, fans will surely witness this great new chapter of the band’s legacy.
 Confirmed SOILWORK Festival Dates:
May 21-22 Radio Rock Risteily Cruise from Helsinki to Tallinn
Jun 10  Brétigny-Sur-Orge, France @ Download FR
Jun 17  Clisson, France @ Hellfest
Jun 23  Gräfenhainichen, Germany @ With Full Force

Originally formed in 1995, SOILWORK have spent the last five years of their careers cementing their vast metal legacy. Most bands would be satisfied releasing one or two albums along with some touring, but not SOILWORK. Their passion for the craft has led them to release a single and double album, a rarities collection, an exclusive EP for Asia, a live DVD and to go on extensive world tours. Their relentless commitment to their fans is what separates them from the rest of the metal community and is the reason they still continue to flourish even after 20 years.
 
2015 saw the release of SOILWORK‘s tenth and most recent full-length studio album, The Ride Majestic. The album saw the addition of Markus Wibom’s (ex-Hearts Alive) as bass player and picked up where the band left off with their critically acclaimed double album The Living Infinite. The Ride Majestic charted internationally upon its release, hitting the Billboard Top 200 in the US, and is available now in CD, vinyl, or digital formats.

LOATHE?S NEW ALBUM, ?THE COLD SUN,? IS OUT ON SHARPTONE RECORDS

April 14, 2017 ? Los Angeles, CA – After much anticipation, Liverpool based experimental collective, LOATHE, has released their debut, full-length album, The Cold Sun, today on SharpTone Records. The album is available for purchase now at http://smarturl.it/thecoldsun.
In conjunction with today?s release, LOATHE has also premiered a brand new video for their song ?East of Eden,? which can be viewed now at https://youtu.be/_oupqTVdblI.
Talking about the new record?s debut, guitarist Erik Bickerstaffe says, “viewing the release of The Cold Sun is something that at one point seemed a lifetime away. Now that the time has come, we have never been more infatuated or enthusiastic about our collective effort before. We hope you thoroughly enjoy what we 5 have worked ever so tirelessly on.”
The Cold Sun is a concept record; a compelling 35 minute long meandering into the depths of a dark, post-apocalyptic tale. The record follows the adjacent timeline of two protagonists, who exist during a dystopian future, stricken by tragedy and the ever-looming apocalypse. The record was recorded at Glow In The Dark Studios in Atlanta, Georgia under the watchful eye of producer Matt McClellan (Underoath, The Devil Wears Prada, Being As An Ocean…).

Molehill Share Their New Single “Reverie”

For Immediate Release: April 13, 2017

Molehill Laugh Edit-

Molehill Share Their New Single “Reverie”

HEAR IT NOW ON EXCLAIM!

NEW EP HEARTS ON FIRE OUT MAY 12TH // PRE-ORDER HERE

Progressive indie rock band Molehill from Chicago has released the second single from their upcoming EP Hearts on Fire. The track “Reverie” premiered with Exclaim! and is an electronic/organic hybrid that tells the story of losing someone, but being thankful for the influence they had on you.

The lyrics are about my father, who died when I was 6 years old,” says vocalist Peter Manhart. “Throughout my life, I have met many people who had stories about how great a man my dad was, how smart or funny or kind he was, how he helped so many people, or how he was this amazing piano player. However, to me, his legacy is more than just a story – ‘you left them a story to tell, but you made me the person I am’.

Sometimes a song comes together very quickly and other times, it requires a little more attention. The latter being the case with “Reverie” explains Manhart. “It started as a 3-chord bridge in one of Greg’s (keys/vocals) other ideas which I really dug and turned into its own song. After cycling through many treatments for the song, we finally settled on this organic/synth hybrid – which is a direction we find ourselves taking more and more.” The track combines elements of their 2015 EP Tin God like the more synth-heavy approach heard on the track “The Repeating” and a more sparse, organic arrangement in “Two Souls.”

Hearts on Fire will be released via all digital retailers on May 12th and is available for pre-order here. The band will be performing at this year’s Canadian Music Week on April 21st at Cherry Cola’s.

“Reverie” and the EP’s title track are also available on Spotify.

About Molehill:
Molehill had humble beginnings in small local venues in Champaign, IL, and has since grown into an established presence in the Chicago music scene. They have played over 300 shows between the Midwest and Eastern United States, including some of the more prestigious venues in Chicago, as well as national (and international) festivals like Summerfest, Musikfest, SXSW, and Canadian Music Week in Toronto. Molehill has built a reputation for explosive live shows and a tireless work ethic, as well as the work they?ve done towards fostering a more friendly and cooperative music community in the city of Chicago. They were one of the founding members of the Chicago Roots Collective, which was a 10-band collective working together to promote the Chicago music scene and their music, and for the last 2 years Molehill has curated a monthly email list to dozens of local bands to try to promote live music in Chicago and encourage local bands to attend shows, discover new bands, and support each other even more.

Peter Manhart, lead singer, lyricist, and guitar player, started playing piano at the age of 3. At the University of Illinois, he pursued a double major in engineering physics and piano pedagogy, but dropped the piano major after 2 years so that he could focus his practice time on the guitar. He went on to get his physics degree, but also took numerous creative writing and poetry classes to develop his lyric writing ability. After moving from Champaign to Chicago, Peter met bassist Trevor Jones, who was studying double bass at DePaul University. Trevor had spent a large portion of his life in various orchestras and has always had a penchant for well organized noise, whatever the genre. He also grew up watching his father, a music professor, manage and play in a 16-piece jazz big band. This instilled in Trevor a strong business and management sense, and helped him complement Peter not only musically but with the business aspect of the band as well. After Peter and Trevor started working together, drummer Devin Staples joined the group. Devin has been a fixture in the Chicago gospel scene for years, and had also been a member of two highly-respected Chicago bands, NYCO and Cassius Clay. The 4th and final piece of the puzzle, keyboard/synth player Greg Van Zuiden, joined soon after. Greg had recently graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University with a music degree, moved to Chicago, and was looking for a band to join. As the youngest member of Molehill, he was the light-hearted ?glue? that helped the band stay strong.

The Hearts on Fire EP continues the group?s tradition of storytelling in music. The dark, brooding ?Old Soldier? tells the story of a proud, religious, soldier, living out his last days in a nursing home – ?And he sits in a dead room, sterilizer and perfume, and the lights are slowly growing dim.? ?Reverie? has the narrator lamenting the loss of a parent long ago, while also thanking that parent, for ?you made me the person I am.? Last but not least, the title track was inspired by the ?Euromaidan? protests in Ukraine – the birthplace of Peter Manhart?s mother. The song is about the common people rising up to fight an oppressive regime. Though the people in this protest were unarmed, the government sent riot police and snipers to kill them, and yet the people?s numbers kept growing until they were finally heard. This song is about the strength of community, sheer willpower, and the resonance of a good and virtuous idea. Though the few in control may try to keep the will of the people down, the masses can change the world if they fight together. With the recent wave of public dissent and protests happening around the world, this seems like the appropriate time to share this song.

For Immediate Release:

(April 14, 2017 – Vercelli, Italy) – Alternative rock band Soldiers Of A Wrong War are streaming their upcoming sophomore release, Countdowns early. The 10-track album is set to release this coming Tuesday, April 18th and will be released on all digital music retailers, as well as their web-store.

“‘Countdowns’ is our second full length release since our first album which we dropped in 2011. I think that people will immediately feel that the sound of this album is more mature, we had the chance to grow, to experience some changes in our lives and we started to listen to many different types of music, having the chance to absorb something from every new artist we fell in love with. We mixed all of that with the Soldiers Of A Wrong War imprint creating something that we’re really proud of.” – Adin Sulic, bass

About SOAWW:

“We live, bleed and breathe for music: it’s more than words, melodies and notes mixed up together, music is our lifeblood, it is where we thrive!”

Soldiers Of A Wrong War formed in 2007. Since the very beginning the guys took seriously their musical interests and after a few months they started to write their own music. After almost a year the band began recording their material in studio, recording at first a three tracks EP in 2009 and then, on January 2011, their first full length album, “Lights & Karma”. Both of the releases were completely self funded.

From the new album are available two singles and music videos: “Save Me” and “Dreamers”. In 2014 the guys released a brand new EP, “Slow” and an official video for the song ‘Slow’ was released too. On June 2016 a new single, “We Will Never Fall”, was released as well as the accompanying visuals via New Noise Magazine. The song is the anticipation of the band’s 2nd studio album, which will be available in early 2017.

If you’re looking for some fresh and sharp rock music that will jump into your ears to conquer your brain, freeze it in a moment of pure pleasure and give it back to you safely refreshed, then Soldiers Of A Wrong War is exactly what you need!

For Immediate Release:
4/14/17
Dayton, OH

Progressive female-fronted punk band Abertooth Lincoln has made their recently released EP, Selling the Urban Ideal, available for streaming on their bandcamp page, and is additionally available for sale on all major digital outlets. Amidst growing social and political tension, the EP has been creating buzz with its unapologetic commitment to tackle anti-feminists, LGBTQ discrimination and rape culture, while upholding the band?s signature style of brutal riffs, bellowing synth atmosphere and bizarre but catchy melodies. The EP was given a 4.5 star review in PunkNews.org as seen here: https://www.punknews.org/review/14852/abertooth-lincoln-selling-the-urban-ideal

The full EP is available for streaming at: https://abertoothlincoln.bandcamp.com/album/selling-the-urban-ideal

The band has also announced the following tour dates:

April 20 ? Dayton, OH @ Blind Bob?s

April 21 ? Chicago, IL @ Burlington Bar

April 22 ? Cincinnati, OH @ Urban Artifact

May 9 ? Dayton, OH @ Rockstar Pro Arena (w/ Local H)

May 12 ? Dayton, OH @ Yellow Cab Building (Sideshow 12 Festival)

May 14 ? Flint, MI @ The Machine Shop (w/ Taproot)

Thom Hazaert, former Corporate Punishment President/A&R/Marketing Exec and current operator of EMP Label Group, has been working with the band to promote the new release. Thom and the band began talks of collaboration after their song was featured on the EMP Underground Sampler in 2016, and was recently announced a new track would appear on the upcoming EMP UNDERGROUND VOL 2!

Hazaert says, “Abertooth Lincoln is a great band, and have hit it hard. I was proud to include them on EMP UNDERGROUND VOL1, and it went over so well we are including them on Vol. 2.”

In addition to the new EP, Abertooth Lincoln has been turning heads with their ?larger than life? stage presence. Their outfits are best described as glammed-out, space alien scientists with an injection of Roth Era Van Halen style coolness. Lead vocalist Ashley Pooler delivers anthemic chorus lines to rally listeners, while the band delivers a cathartic blend of heavy riffs and progressive Punk Rock swagger. If King Crimson, Dead Kennedys and Devo started a band and stole a spaceship, it would be Abertooth Lincoln.

?Selling the Urban Ideal? is available now on iTunes and Spotify. You can download a digital copy or purchase a CD copy at https://abertoothlincoln.bandcamp.com/album/selling-the-urban-ideal

SMNnews presents BLACK DONNELLYS

BLACK DONNELLYS 13

For punk rockers who grew up in London, Ontario in the eighties, the singer for the Black Donnellys was something of a messianic figure. An infectious wordsmith with a venomous charisma and gnarly set of gnashers, Dan Rudbal was London, Onterrible?s answer to Johnny Rotten.

 

 

 

 

 

 

He first made a dent as the front man for London?s best hardcore band October Crisis. In 1986, after a spectacular homecoming gig at Centennial Hall and just as they were positioned to break out as one of Canada?s definitive punk rock acts, October Crisis imploded in a bizarre fit of self-defeat, much to the dismay of their loyal legion of young fans.

 

 

 

 

 

In the wake of this unexpected debacle, Dan resurrected his first love, the Black Donnellys, named after an ill-famed family of Irish immigrants who in the late 1800?s terrorized the small town of Lucan, Ontario before being brutally massacred by vigilantes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Formed in 1982, Rudbal?s tribute to the infamous clan went through a steady succession of member changes before arriving at its classic line-up, the Donnellys IV. With the self-distributed Life?s A Scream cassette in 1984, this was the only version of the band to have ever released any original material.

Until now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After quickly becoming the darlings of the London, Onterrible punk scene, and very much like October Crisis before them, The Donnellys IV suddenly and violently collapsed. At this point, it became clear to many London music fans that the caustic qualities that made him such a compelling songwriter and front man would likely sentence any project with Dan Rudbal to a short shelf life. And though many iterations of the Donnellys followed, they rarely lasted more than a couple of gigs if they were lucky to progress from the practise phase at all.

 

 

 

 

 

Fast forward twenty years and musician / producer Al Hate enters the Donnelly?s mythos. A former member of another short-lived but influential local band, Hate was a guitarist for techno-thrashers Dyoxen who in 1991 became the only act to emerge from the eighties London, Onterrible music scene to score a worldwide record deal. Their one and only album First Among Equals was released in North America on Cargo and in Europe through Active Records to significant international acclaim, getting rave reviews in Metal bibles like Kerrang! and Metal Hammerwith the likes of legendary British music critic Chris Welch calling it, ?Seriously powerful, skilled modern thrash, played by thinking beings! Yes, and you can use that on all the publicity blurbs.?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A dedicated fan of October Crisis and advocate of Rudbal?s lyrical intensity and general propensity for on-stage aggro, Hate had long entertained the idea of collaborating with the notorious singer. With a keen understanding of how to compose tracks to compliment Rudbal?s song-writing strengths, Hate figured that if he could negotiate the singer?s volatility long enough to record some original material, together they could make a serious dent in the Donnellys?s dubious musical legacy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Recruiting the services of local lads Rob Carvell (drums), Jay Brooks (bass) and fellow October Crisis devotee Trevor Wilkins (guitar and co-writer),  the Black Donnellys 13 were born, kicking and screaming into a world long forsaken by its creator. The mutually corrosive sensibilities of Rudbal and Hate produced some of the finest work of their erratic music careers to date, resulting in the five song Orchestrate A Disaster EP, a work of epic lyrical nihilism executed with precision riffs and no-nonsense production.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a whole, the tracks combine the abrasiveness of the Pistols, the big choruses of The Clash and the dark intensity of Discharge with a melodic influence that leans towards contemporary metal and industrial soundscapes. But there?s another, less obvious influence at work.

It?s long been rumoured that Rudbal was weaned on his big sister?s record collection and he?s  previously credited the likes of The Supremes for influencing his melodic sensibilities. So if you listen very carefully, you can vaguely sense the spirit of Motown hanging over the proceedings, if ever so elusively.

Unfortunately by 2007, after a brief but blistering onslaught of performances with the likes of The Misfits, DOA, SNFU, Abrasive Wheels, The Casualties and The Unseen, the Donnellys 13 predictably self-destructed in a hurricane of acrimony and the recorded material was indefinitely shelved.

Ten years later, after the dust had settled and the wounds had nearly stopped festering, Hate teamed up with engineer Darren Morrison to revisit these long-forgotten tracks. They slaved over the mixes with painstaking detail before enlisting the services of audio whiz Stephen Marsh in Los Angeles to master the final results. Their mission was straight forward enough?to capture the orchestrated chaos of a live Donnellys gig with a confrontational Dan Rudbal furiously spitting his lyrics right in your face.

The first cut Dead and Bleeding sets the tone?an anti-romance parable that boasts some of Rudbal?s nastiest bits of wordplay to date: ?Love is Like a Nail and I?ll Hammer You!? The nihilistic fun continues with Left Amongst the Bugs and Twigs, a tasty bit of existential hell with a huge, major key chorus that contrasts violently with Rudbal?s dismally bitter worldview. Then there?s the obvious single?the relentlessly catchy Lucky Man followed by the almost equally single-ready Away.

But it?s the final track that delivers the goods, The Great White Way?a musical nervous breakdown and the most progressive experiment of the lot. It?s a fitting show-stopper with an intro plucked out of something by Bauhaus followed by an epic sermon of rejection, betrayal and disappointment, themes threaded throughout every track on the disc. This is music you play for people in desperate need of having their enthusiasm curb-stomped.

To celebrate the tenth year anniversary of these songs (and the 34th birthday of the Donnellys in general), these rare but unforgettable tracks are being unleashed for the first time in their finished form. Too good to stay hidden forever, Orchestrate A Disaster is destined to endure as the definitive Black Donnellys statement?an audio assault that captures the visceral attack of this doomed punk rock juggernaut at its most uncompromising intensity.

BLACKENED DEATH METAL BAND, NEVALRA, SIGNS WORLDWIDE DEAL WITH EXTREME MANAGEMENT GROUP

 

 

BLACKENED DEATH METAL BAND, NEVALRA, SIGNS WORLDWIDE DEAL WITH EXTREME MANAGEMENT GROUP

 

Extreme Management Group (EMG), home to bands like Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Rings of Saturn, and more, is proud to announce the partnership with blackened death metalers NEVALRA. NEVALRA started in 2013 as multi-instrumentalist Scott Eames’ studio project. As things progressed, NEVALRA grew from a one man band to a full lineup; thus bringing NEVALRA out of the studio, and to the stage. In late 2013, the band released their debut single “VRIL” followed by a series of promo singles entitled “Terror Throne” (via Lyric Video), “Descend & Die” (via Music Video) & “Groom Lake” (via Lyric Video). All singles were combined into the EP release “The Black Flame”; which was included at #6 on MetalSucks.net TOP Metal Albums of 2015 among the likes of Lamb of God, the Black Dahlia Murder, August Burns Red, Abigail Williams & others. NEVALRA has been tackling a relentless Tour schedule ever since.  NEVALRA is currently endorsed by B.C. Rich Guitars, Randall Amps, EMG Pickups, and Spectraflex Cables; home of the Scott Eames signature “Terror Flex” guitar cable.  NEVALRA is hard at work on their upcoming full-length major label debut.

? It is an more than an honor to unite with Extreme Management Group, Inc. NEVALRA looks forward to a exceptionally busy, hard working & successful partnership. Great things are anticipated as we join forces with Extreme Management Group. We feel a great satisfaction in knowing NEVALRA is in good hands.?

TOXIC HOLOCAUST And GATECREEPER To Kick Off North American Tour Supporting Nails TOMORROW!

Oregon-based punk thrashers TOXIC HOLOCAUST and their Arizona-based, classic death metal labelmates GATECREEPER will kick off their long-awaited North American live takeover supporting Nails this week. The tour will commence on March 16th in Orlando, Florida and ravage eighteen cities through April 2nd in Los Angeles, California. See all confirmed dates below.

TOXIC HOLOCAUST And GATECREEPER w/ Nails:

3/22/2017 Music Hall Of Williamsburg – New York City, NY
3/23/2017 Middle East (Downstairs) – Boston, MA
3/24/2017 Foufounes Electriques – Montréal, QC
3/25/2017 Lee’s Palace – Toronto, ON
3/26/2017 Magic Stick – Detroit, MI
3/27/2017 Park Street – Columbus, OH
3/28/2017 Bottom Lounge – Chicago, IL
3/29/2017 Neumos – Seattle, WA
3/30/2017 Analog Theater – Portland, OR
3/31/2017 New Parish – Oakland, CA
4/01/2017 The Hi Hat – Los Angeles, CA
4/02/2017 The Hi Hat – Los Angeles, CA

TOXIC HOLOCAUST released their most recent full-length release, Chemistry of Consciousness, via Relapse in 2013. Crowned, “…one of thrash’s most exciting modern bands,” by Loudwire, “…the aural equivalent of a cobra with a chest tattoo of a double helix and syringes for fangs getting ready to strike amidst two flesh-like walls of anxious, bloodshot eyes…,” by MetalSucks,” and a, “bottled up riot distilled into musical form,” by Metal Injection,” Chemistry Of Consciousness continues to dehydrate the masses with a platter that pays tribute to the likes of Anti-Cimex, Warfare, Infernal Majesty, GBH, Discharge, Autopsy and Chaos UK without replicating them.

GATECREEPER will be touring in support of their Sonoran Depravation full-length released via Relapse Records last October. Produced by Ryan Bram at Homewrecker Studios and mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails, Black Breath) at God City Studios, the record tears and chugs through more than thirty minutes of crusty, doom-soaked death metal at its most infectious and uncompromising with a massive sound that calls to mind the classic Swedish buzz-saw attack of Dismember and Grave mixed with the impeccable groove of Obituary and Bolt Thrower.

Pitchfork notes of the offering, “Arizona’s GATECREEPER stand out not by aping one particular style of death metal, but by acting as a polyglot of various classic bands. Sonoran Depravation is their unwavering debut LP.” Cvlt Nation calls Sonoran Depravation, “a death metal masterwork that will begin carving GATECREEPER a place into the same pantheon from which they draw influence: bear witness and headbang with awe,” while Noisey writes, “the nine-song album reflects the prickly intermingling of genres and cities, raw with emotion and a pervasive ferocity. Unlike bands like Power Trip or Xibalba, whose sound clearly melds thrash and punk, GATECREEPER’s approach on tracks like ‘Sterilizing’ or highlight ‘Stronghold’ emphasize death metal as a primary style.”
