Blood Freak – “Feeding Rituals” Update

Razorback Records have released the following update:

Things are moving fast on this upcoming special release! Maniac Neil already has a large portion of the new songs done! Almost all of the lyrics are finished as well. The new stuff sounds like FRIGHTMARE‘s “Bringing Back The Bloodshed” sound mixed with BLOOD FREAK‘s style! Shorter songs, crunchy metallic guitar sound, and even tighter drums with incredible production/sound! The theme/tone is meaner, more pissed off, and sleazier than ever. There’s going to be even more insane vocal f/x this time around as well. The pitch-shifter will return….but with a TWIST!

Here’s the updated list of songs that will appear on the CD:

Walls of Jericho – Finish Filming 1st Video for New Album

WALLS OF JERICHO, Detroit’s voice of metal, just finished filming their first video for the new album, “With Devils Amongst Us All” due out Fall 2006. The band, which delivers a fierce onslaught of metallic venom in their guitars while retaining the grit of hardcore/punk, is fronted by female fury, Candace Kucsulain.  Consistent with their dark sound, WALLS OF JERICHO shot the video for the song ‘A Trigger Full of Promises’ in discarded prison cells located deep in the rural countryside of Pennsylvania. The prison cells are part of an old farm house that was once a film studio for S&M videos, and is now used to make interrogation training films for the U.S. army and navy.  We wanted the video to be full of dark undertones, to match the lyrical theme of the song says Dustin Schoenhofer (drums) who actually scripted the video, The initial idea was to combine a Romeo and Juliet storyline with METALLICA’s ‘Unforgiven‘ video. The song is about the idea of love and the video portrays lovers who are separated by a prison wall, who give up their health, well-being and ultimately their lifes to reach one another.

Director Dale Restigini who has worked with TRIVIUM, HATEBREED, FALL OUT BOY shot the video in one day.  When most people were enjoying cookouts and baseball on Memorial Day, the band who had just completed the Trustkill Takeover Tour with BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, ROSES ARE RED were filming.  ‘A Trigger Full Of Promises’ will be the first single off of “With Devils Amongst Us All”, and is also featured on the new Headbanger’s Ball, The Revenge double album that is out now. Guitarist Mike Hasty describes the forthcoming full-length album as the most varied music we’ve ever written, it’s a lot more anthemic whereas our older material was more about aggression than composition. 

With Devils Amongst Us All” is the follow up to 2004’s “All Hail The Dead,” which had a fury of press coverage including national publications such as Alt Press, Decibel and Revolver as well as broadcast media such as Headbangers Ball (which Candace hosted an episode of).

Bury Your Dead – July 11 Release Date for “Beauty and the Breakdown” – Details Revealed

“We could just get up there and shred or have a good time. We choose to have a good time” – BURY YOUR DEAD

On July 11 Victory Records will release BURY YOUR DEAD‘s appropriately titled “Beauty And The Breakdown.”

Massachusetts based BURY YOUR DEAD took no prisoners last year on Ozzfest‘s notorious second stage, establishing themselves alongside AS I LAY DYING, ROB ZOMBIE, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE among others. Now, on July 11th, BURY YOUR DEAD will release their eponymous “Beauty And The Breakdown” (Victory).

BURY YOUR DEAD rise to the occasion after breaking up and reforming; having gone through 9 touring vehicles including buckets of bolts like a Hyundai Accent and a Kia Sefia. They’re still together and their stronger than ever on the new album, “Beauty And The Breakdown – which is easily their most focused sonic offering.

In the BURY YOUR DEAD tradition, the music is heavier than granite, but the band’s approach and collective attitude is light, fun and carefree bringing old school rock n roll f-you style back to the music scene; that coupled with their not to be missed live performance is what sets BYD apart from their peers.  Also drawing attention from music industry folk, specifically to Superhero Artist Management’s Howard Jones who doubles as singer in KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and now manages the band.  BURY YOUR DEAD‘s brute heaviness collided with their catchy melodies, “making you mosh your brains out to our infectious breakdowns, is what keeps the kids coming back for more.” As Slim says, “It’s always down and dirty, hustle and bustle with BURY YOUR DEAD.” And that equals a damn good time.

While 2004’s “Cover Your Tracks” respectfully sold more than 80,000 copies, featuring song titles named after Tom Cruise movies, “Beauty And The Breakdown” doesn’t name its song titles after Nicole Kidman movies – nor does it sound like its predecessor. Here, BURY YOUR DEAD named all their songs after fairytales, like “Mirror, Mirror”, “House Of Brick”, and “House Of Straw”. The album’s artwork is laid out like a storybook, as well. Despite having such light, fun titles, the music contained on the moshable “Beauty And The Breakdown” is pummeling, vivid, and fast, and it will knock the wind out of you, and is also smart and tightly written.

Their organic method of playing with ideas and writing songs is another key factor of what makes BURY YOUR DEAD a little bit different and a whole lotta special. “Me and Mark are like peanut butter and jelly,” Slim reveals. “We don’t need to lock into a practice space with a bottle of whiskey and make a thing, with details all hidden. We go into my parents’living room, where he has electric drum set and I have a half stack, and we write and other members come in and contribute.”

Fun is an essential ingredient to the BURY YOUR DEAD sound, and they definitely strike the balance.  “You can hear us having a good time,” Slim points out.  Indeed, if you’ve ever witnessed a BURY YOUR DEAD show, when they play their namesake song, there are massive pile-ons on stage, with kids clamoring for a chance to scream, “Bury your fuckin’ dead” with Bruso (vox). “Having a good time is as important as the quality of the music, absolutely, 200 percent.”

Look for soon to be announced summer tour plans.

Slayer – Announce “Christ Illusion” As Album Title – Reveal Release Date, Tracklisting

Christ Illusion” has been confirmed as the title of the new SLAYER album, it has been announced, and the CD’s release date is now confirmed for August 8, 2006.

Christ Illusion” is SLAYER’s first new studio album since 2001, and the
first recorded by the band’s original line-up – Kerry King/guitars; Tom
/bass, vocals; Jeff Hanneman/guitars; Dave Lombardo/drums – since
1990’s “Seasons In The Abyss.” “Christ Illusion” was produced by Josh
and executive produced by Rick Rubin, and will be released on SLAYER‘s long-time label, Rubin‘s American Recordings/Warner Bros. Records.

Christ Illusion” deals with familiar SLAYER themes – god, religion, hate, and war. Song titles are “Flesh Storm,” “Catalyst,” “Eyes of the Insane,” “Jihad,” “Skeleton Christ,” “Consfearacy,” “Black Serenade,” ” Catatonic,” “Cult,” and “Supremist.” According to Araya, “No one is going to be disappointed, it’s going to blow everybody away. It’s fast, heavy, and maybe faster than anything we’ve done before.”

“It’s a good mix of fast, brutal music and slower moodier stuff, it’s pretty
intense,” added King. “It sounds like a damn SLAYER record.”

A core player in SLAYER‘s history has also rejoined the team for the “Christ
” project. Larry Carroll, who did the cover artwork for “Reign in
,” “South of Heaven,” and “Seasons In the Abyss,” has painted an
original piece for the “Christ Illusion” cover. Working only from the song
titles and early lyrics, Carroll has produced a classic SLAYER masterpiece -
a portrait of the Christ – whose forearms have been chopped off – standing
in an ocean of blood surrounded by floating, decapitated heads. Carroll
created the painting on a 4-by-4-foot slab of wood using a combination of
mediums. King already has placed dibs on ownership of the original wooden

Shadows Fall – Frontman Brian Fair Talks To MTV

The following article was originally posted over at

SHADOWS FALL frontman Brian Fair lives more than an hour’s drive from the band’s practice space in Springfield, Massachusetts, where they’ve been working on their forthcoming Atlantic Records debut the last six months. But he doesn’t mind after all, the practice space is also above one of New England’s biggest nudie bars, Mardi Gras.

“It doesn’t make it too hard to go to work,” he laughed. “Us and STAIND both have a practice space up there. It’s amazing, too, because I’m used to Boston practice spaces, which are like $500 closets. So this is actually real spacious, and they have $12 pitchers downstairs. It’s not that hard to drive an hour and a half to practice when I know what’s waiting.”

At this point, Fair said, SHADOWS FALL have “the outlines of eight or nine songs” finished. The bandmembers meet three times a week for intense writing sessions. “We’re trying to overwrite,” the singer said. “We were just out in Los Angeles, and we shot a video for ‘In Effigy,’ ” off the band’s final LP for Century Media, Fallout From the War. “Beyond that, we’ve just been writing like hermits up in the practice space.”

Fallout From the War, which will be in stores Tuesday, features eight original SHADOWS FALL tunes and three covers: ONLY LIVING WITNESS‘ “December,” LEEWAY‘s “Mark of the Squealer” and DANGEROUS TOYS‘ “Teas’n, Pleas’n.”

Most of the new songs were borne out of the recording sessions for 2004’s The War Within. The video for “In Effigy,” shot with director Zach Merck (ATREYU, LACUNA COIL), will be a straight-ahead performance clip, according to a Century Media spokesperson.

“Some of these ideas started with The War Within, and this album’s being packaged as a companion piece to that, but for us, it took on a whole new life because after two years, those ideas changed so much it’s ridiculous,” Fair explained. “Like sometimes it was one or two riffs that were somewhere in the vault that we never got a chance to work on, and those original riffs might not have stayed the same. The vocal lines and lyrics were written this fall after [our stint on last summer’s] Ozzfest. To us, it’s a whole new record. One song, ‘Deadworld,’ goes back to the original SHADOWS FALL demo. It’s cool to hear 10 years of progression in one song.”

Fair said the album, while inspired by ideas the band was forced to abandon because of post-album touring commitments, is an LP that marks “another step forward for this band. With each record, we try to progress sonically and as songwriters. This album bridges the gap to The War Within, but for us, it stands on its own.”

The singer said there had been discussions with the label about re-releasing some of the band’s older material. “There was talk of remastering this and that. Someone suggested a box set. But it was like, ‘Dude, we have new songs. Let’s release new songs. The kids don’t want to hear old sh– again.’ “

Fair‘s had his hands full in recent months with both SHADOWS FALL and the recording sessions for OVERCAST‘s forthcoming album, Reborn to Kill Again, which he finished tracking vocals for three weeks ago. OVERCAST, the band Fair was in with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE bassist Mike D’Antonio before entering the SHADOWS FALL fold, reunited several months ago for a handful of live gigs and to record Reborn.

“It’s been a lot of fun, which normally isn’t what happens in the studio. Just a bunch of old friends getting together,” Fair said. “It’s been a blast. We’re never going to recapture that energy of a bunch of 16-year-old kids who didn’t know what they were doing, so this is a total different approach to it, and it sounds f—ing monstrous, man.”

As for jumping ship for the major label’s often choppy waters, Fair said it’s a decision he and the rest of the band had to make.

“We were friends with [the folks at Century Media] before we signed with the label, and they definitely went above and beyond what we thought an indie label could possibly do,” he said. “They did offer us a great deal, but we wanted to … see if we could take it to another level.

“It was a tough decision, but one we felt we really needed to make. We’ve been together 10 years, so we came with a contract and we knew exactly what we wanted. If people weren’t into that initial thing, we knew we could cut them off right away. We weren’t settling. We were brutally honest right at the beginning, and it stopped a lot of those dinners right away.

“These labels knew they weren’t signing Britney Spears,” Fair continued. “They were just getting a bunch of Ma–hole metalheads. We were just psyched to get some free pizza and beer.”

Job For A Cowboy – Sign To Metal Blade Records is reporting that Arizona based deathcore act JOB FOR A COWBOY have signed to Metal Blade Records, with the band expected to head into the studio later this year to record their debut album for a Spring release.

Paris Hilton – Launches New Video for Lead Single ‘Stars Are Blind’

For those of you sitting and waiting around for Germany vs. Costa Rica, you can sing along at home:

I don’t mind spending some time
Just hanging here with you
Cuz I don’t find too many guys
That treat me like you do
Those other guys all wanna take me for a ride
But when I walk their talk is suicide
Some people never get beyond their stupid pride
But you can see the real me inside
And I’m satisfied, oh no, ohh

Even though the gods are crazy
Even though the stars are blind
If you show me real love baby
I’ll show you mine

I can make you nice and naughty
Be the devil and angel too
Got a heart and soul and body
Let’s see what this love can do
Baby i’m perfect for you

My love, ohh oh

I could be your confidante
Just one of your girlfriends
But I know that love’s what you want
If tomorrow the world ends
Why shouldn’t we be with the one we really love?
Now tell me who have you been dreaming of
At night at home? oh no, ohh

Excuse me for feeling
This moment is critical
Might be me feeling
It could get physical, oh no, no no
