Vicious Circle – Sign Deal to Crash Music

Crash Music, Inc. today announces that they have signed an agreement with New Jersey metal band VICIOUS CIRCLE.

Since 1989, New Jersey based VICIOUS CIRCLE have been churning out brutality with their own brand of extreme chaos. The band released their debut album entitled “Cryptic Void” in 1993 on the now defunct JL America label.

VICIOUS CIRCLE has become a brutal and relentless entity within their genre and will continue to make a severe impact on the Metal scene with their newest release, “The Art Of Agony”, due out this summer on Crash Music.

Thine Eyes Bleed – Consider Themselves “Underdogs” on Unholy Alliance Tour – Out to Prove a Point

Canadian thrash/metalcore act THINE EYES BLEED have grabbed the opening slot on the most anticipated metal tour of the summer, the UNHOLY ALLIANCE TOUR.

“Right now we are thinking, ‘Holy f*ck, we got the big one!” says THINE EYES BLEED singer Justin Wolfe about the tour. “We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the Unholy Alliance Tour and as of right now it’s still overwhelming”

The tour – which is headlined by SLAYER and features MASTODON, LAMB OF GOD, CHILDREN OF BODOM and THINE EYES BLEED ? will launch on June 6, 2006 and run for two months across North America.

“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity that we have always dreamt of having as a band,” comments Wolfe. “Personally we have no choice but to go out and prove ourselves being the ‘underdogs’ of the tour and we want to take full advantage of it. We have worked so hard to get to this point and it’s really going to show.”

“This tour will definitely leave its mark in every city it hits. It’s a tour that any metalhead shouldn’t pass up.”

In the meantime before the massive tour begins THINE EYES BLEED, who released their debut album In the Wake of Separation on The End Records in June of 2005, will be out on the road all spring on various tours, including opening slots on tours with SIX FEET UNDER, RINGWORM, NECROPHAGIST and others.

Underoath – Adam Dutkiewicz Produced Disc Ready for June 20 Release

UNDEROATH have announced they’ll release their new album June 20 on Tooth and Nail/Solid State Records.

Co-produced by Matt Goldman and KILLSWITCH ENGAGE guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz, the Florida-based sextet are in Los Angeles mixing the as-yet-untitled album with Chris Lord Alge (GREEN DAY, ROB ZOMBIE). “This is the record we’ve been striving to write for the past five years, and I never thought I’d see the day when it actually happened,” explains McTague. “I can’t wait for everyone to hear what we’ve been creating for the past few months, but in the end, if everyone hated it, we’d still think it’s probably the best record we may ever be a part of.”

This marks UNDEROATH‘s third full-length CD and the follow-up to their massive breakout album “They’re Only Chasing Safety”, which has now sold over 300,000 copies. In the Alternative Press cover story on UNDEROATH, the magazine described “They’re Only Chasing Safety” as “an unqualified success, one of the most coherent albums in post-genre rock, a movement that’s been spreading like wildfire since the walls between hardcore, pop, metal and emo were demolished” (September 2005).

In touring news, UNDEROATH is confirmed for the UK’s Give It A Name Festival April 29-30 in London and Manchester. On May 3, the band will kick off a headlining U.S. trek, with POISON THE WELL, AS CITIES BURN, SPITFIRE and SINCE BY MAN supporting. On Sunday, May 7, UNDEROATH will perform at the Bamboozle Festival in East Rutherford, NJ.

SOULS HARBOR is a five piece band all hailing from different parts of the U.S. that formed in late 2000 when they all met in the military. With a blend of heavy guitars and hook laden melodies, their in your face, jaw dropping sound and performance is one that can relate to many.

In 2005, the band self released their EP entitled “Burning Souls”. The EP quickly sparked attention from several major southeastern radio stations including 98X (Charleston, SC) and Rock 106.1 (Savannah, GA). Soon, two songs off the EP were added into regular rotation and the band moved more than 2,500 units within 90 days.

Slayer – Announce Their Alternative To Ozzfest

It was too good to be true. Contrary to previous speculation, SLAYER will be hitting the road with LAMB OF GOD, MASTODON, CHILDREN OF BODOM, and THINE EYES BLEED for the Unholy Alliance Tour. The following is from an MTV.com article:

“Dubbed the Unholy Alliance Tour, the trek will make stops in most major cities, although the actual routing of the run is still being fleshed out. Either way King’s anxious to hit the road again.

“It’s been 18 months since we’ve toured in the States,” he explained. “People are going to be chomping at the bit to see us again. Our initial thought [with Unholy Alliance] was to go up against Ozzfest, because I think that tour’s getting a little bit tired and I think people are tired of going out and getting sunburned for hours every summer. Every place we play is going to be indoors, with a good-sized lineup. We’re certainly not going to try to make Ozzfest go away. We’re just trying to offer an alternative.”

According to Rick Sales, SLAYER‘s manager of 18 years, the idea’s to make the Unholy Alliance Tour an annual event “with the best bands out there.” During the fall of 2004, SLAYER, SLIPKNOT, MASTODON and HATEBREED toured Europe under the Unholy Alliance tag. Sales also wants to take the tour global and said following its U.S. run, the Alliance will return to Europe, followed by stints in Japan and Australia ? although, he noted the lineups would be different on each leg.

“I think we’re in a different spot than Ozzfest,” Sales continued. “This is more extreme and it’s not involving any sort of ‘radio bands.’ It’s a no-compromise lineup, the best of the breed. We think this is a great live event and that the tour will become bigger than the lineup. I think Ozzfest has proven that.”

SLAYER, who Sales said declined an Ozzfest 2006 invite, will deliver an hour-plus set to close out each night of the Unholy Alliance; THINE EYES BLEED will open on all dates, followed by BODOM and MASTODON (who’ll be rotating slots) and then LAMB OF GOD. King said SLAYER will debut some new material from the stage.

On Tuesday SLAYER entered a Los Angeles studio, where they started recording the 11 songs that’ll comprise their yet-untitled album. Rick Rubin (JAY-Z, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS) will executive-produce the disc, while Josh Abraham (VELVET REVOLVER, STAIND) will turn the knobs. One of the songs has an official title (“Cult”), but all of them, King promised, will be devastatingly grim.

“There are definitely things you can’t write about in SLAYER, and there are definitely things people expect you to write about,” he said. “Everybody expects war, Satanism or anti-religious stuff ? and this record’s chock-full of that.”

The LP, which the band hopes to finish in time for a late June release, will be the first to feature original drummer Dave Lombardo in more than 15 years. Their last outing together was 1990’s Seasons in the Abyss.

“[Drummer] Paul [Bostaph], who we did God Hates Us All with, kind of had an elbow problem, and now he’s with EXODUS,” King said. “When Paul left us … it was brought to our attention that Dave was available. And we figured if anybody should be doing this, it should be him.”

Most of the 11 songs SLAYER will record were written more than two years ago, the guitarist said. “We’re hoping to do it old-school and record everything in like four weeks,” he added. “We’re ready. This is probably the most ready we’ve been since Seasons. We’ve been spinning our wheels in rehearsals, just waiting for the green light on this thing. Now that we’ve got it, we’re ready to go.

“It’s definitely going to be a riff-fest,” King continued. “There’s riffs all over the place. As much time as we’ve had to work on it, there better be riffs on it. I think anybody who likes SLAYER, musically, is going to love it.”

While Sales said SLAYER‘s studio LP probably won’t be in stores by June 6, he says the band will release a digital download, EP or something else to coincide with the tour launch.

On Saturday, MTV2’s “Headbangers Ball” will feature an exclusive interview with bassist Tom Araya regarding the forthcoming album and the Unholy Alliance run.”

Demiricous – Vagrant Idol Debut on HBB – Tom Araya to Speak about Summer Plans

Metal Blade Recording artist DEMIRICOUS will see their video for the track ‘Vagrant Idol’ debut on Headbangers Ball this Saturday, March 4. The band released their debut “ONE” (produced by legendary producer Zeuss) in late January and holds the #4 spot on CMJ Loud Rock Chart for three weeks straight also #9 on FMQB’s Metal Detector and # 4Media Guide Metal Specialty Chart. Nate of DEMIRICOUS quipped:

Judas Priest – To Release Vintage Concert DVD ‘Live Vengeance `82′ on April 4

JUDAS PRIEST had steadily been building a worldwide audience for eight long years when the 1982 album ‘Screaming For Vengeance’ exploded and became a smash commercial and critical hit. The mainstream had finally caught on and realized what die-hard fans had known all along: Nobody rocked harder or better than the British heavy metal quintet. The single ‘You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’ was embraced by radio and the music video earned heavy rotation on MTV.

Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings will release the DVD ‘Live Vengeance ’82’ on April 4, 2006. It was previously only available on DVD as a limited-edition bonus disc with the first pressings of Judas Priest’s career-spanning box set ‘Metalogy’ in 2004. This performance, filmed during the arena-packing ‘Screaming For Vengeance’ world tour on December 12, 1982, at Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis, Tennessee, was first released on home video in 1983 as ‘Judas Priest – Live’. It had been out of print for many years before its brief inclusion as part of ‘Metalogy’.

Vocalist Rob Halford, lead guitarists Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing and bass guitarist Ian Hill lead JUDAS PRIEST through a fiery set comprised of classics from previous albums such as ‘Sad Wings Of Destiny’, ‘Sin After Sin’, ‘Hell Bent For Leather’, ‘British Steel’ and ‘Point Of Entry’ as well as the cream of ‘Screaming For Vengeance’.

The 17 tracks on ‘Live Vengeance ’82’ include: ‘The Hellion/Electric Eye’, ‘Riding On The Wind’, ‘Heading Out To The Highway’, ‘Metal Gods’, ‘Bloodstone’, ‘Breaking The Law’, ‘Sinner’, ‘Desert Plains’, ‘The Ripper’, ‘Diamonds And Rust’, ‘Devil’s Child’, ‘Screaming For Vengeance’, ‘You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’,’ ‘Victim Of Changes’, ‘Living After Midnight’, ‘The Green Manalishi (With The Two-Pronged Crown)’ and ‘Hell Bent For Leather’.

The ‘Live Vengeance ’82’ audio is mastered in both stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound mixes.
