GHOUL To Revive ‘We Came For The Dead!!!’ With Vinyl Manifestation‏

ghoul4

While the public is still reeling in the aftermath of the barrage of transmissions and recordings from ghastly Creepsylvanian specters, GHOUL, over recent months, the obfuscated thugs unrelentingly announce a new addition to their maggot-infested back-catalog, with the vinyl manifestation of their debut album, We Came For The Dead!!!.

Initially released in 2002, We Came For The Dead!!! was an instant cult classic in the most putrid depths of the metal underworld, as these unknown bandits raided the scene. Delivering a slick, punk-infused style of American goregrind from an unidentified tomb in the depths of Creepsylvania, where they’ve since waged war on mortals from with full anonymity, and having brainwashed countless troubled souls since with a plethora of disturbing musical platters, GHOUL now digs up this rotted carcass called We Came For The Dead!!! to manufacture its putrid remains on vinyl, including the album-closing rendition of Megadeth’sSkull Beneath The Skin.”

Tankcrimes is currently embalming the cadaver of GHOUL’s We Came For The Dead!!! for its public service on September 9th, where the wax edition of the more than thirty-three minute release will get the hot-shit reissue treatment on three disgusting colors of vinyl; a “More Blood” red edition in a run of 666, as well as the ultra-limited “Torch” pressing in a tri-color yellow/orange/bone scheme, and the Die Hard edition, which bears a “Blood Spill” red inside clear vinyl, foil stamped jacket, flexi postcard w/ bonus track “We Are Creepsylvanians.” And for the CD and digital format junkies, the album comes paired up with GHOUL’s ghastly follow-up to We Came For The Dead!!!, Maniaxe, in those formats as a nifty two-for-one album deal.

Additionally, the masked miscreants are coming back to seize your soul and all your worldly possessions on another run of live assaults this Fall. Slated to commence on September 5th in Chicago, GHOUL will reduce seventeen cities to bloody rubble supporting blackened thrash headliners, Skeletonwitch, and black metal tyrants, Black Anvil.

CANNIBAL CORPSE: American Death Metal Icons To Release ‘A Skeletal Domain’

cc2

American death metal icons, CANNIBAL CORPSE, are pleased to announce the release of their thirteenth full-length entitled A Skeletal Domain. With this new entry to their extensive catalog, they’ve switched gears, opting to work with producer Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver) at Audio Hammer Studios, after having tracked their previous three outings (Kill, Evisceration Plague, Torture) with Erik Rutan. Boasting twelve-ominous tracks in forty-four spine-fraying minutes, the result is a massive, belligerent, and deliberate aural attack that finds the band at their peak of their notoriously hyper-kinetic, meticulously executed brutality.

As a precursor to the official unveiling of A Skeletal Domain, CANNIBAL CORPSE will kick off the Summer as Coldcock Herbal Whiskey Stage headliners on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival featuring Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Trivium and many more. Set to commence on July 5th in San Bernardino, California, the annual mega tour will stampede its way across North America throughout July and much of August, coming to a close on August 10th in Woodland, Texas.

In related CANNIBAL CORPSE happenings, this September, the band will unleash their first-ever official authorized biography. Written by Joel McIver, author of Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica and biographies on Black Sabbath, Slayer, Slipknot, and Queens Of The Stone Age, Bible Of Butchery – Cannibal Corpse: The Official Biography will contain over 150 pages loaded with photos from the band’s collection, available everywhere this Fall!
