Neuraxis – Not On Beneath The Massacre Tour

NEURAXIS have posted the following update:

Earlier this year, NEURAXIS had agreed to take part in a US tour alongside BENEATH THE MASSACRE & VICTIMAS which was to take place for late July/early August. In late June it was decided that we had to cancel our participation on this tour. We had advised the tour promoter of our decision. There was several reasons we could not do this tour:

With a month to go before the tour was to start, we had only received half of the confirmed dates. We felt this was not enough time to properly promote and spread the word about this tour.

NEURAXIS did not have work permits to enter the US to tour. This would mean we would have to attempt to pass through with a false reason. NEURAXIS has done this before in the past and it is a very stressfull situation because the US border is very strict and its always a 50/50 chance we could be denied, add to that if we are caught lying we could be permanently banned from entering the US(including our vehicle).

At the same time, NEURAXIS was offered to do another tour in Canada at the same period of time. We felt this new offer was a lot safer and would be a better choice. More news on this coming soon.

With all these reasons we decided we had to cancel. We want to thank Joe Hernandez (the tour promoter) for his work and time that he put into the tour.

The reason for this announcement is because we have received some emails from promoters and fans that still think NEURAXIS is on this tour. Please be aware we are no longer playing. We plan on returning to the US sometime this year/early next year.

Minsk – Sign To Relapse Records

Relapse Records have announced the signing of Chicago / Peoria, IL quartet MINSK.

MINSK bassist / vocalist Sanford Parker comments on the signing; “Relapse‘s long standing commitment to signing great progressive and creative bands make it a perfect place for us to be, and we’re very happy to be a part of [the label].” MINSK‘s yet to be titled Relapse debut is scheduled for an early 2007 release and will be recorded by Parker and the band at his Volume Recording studio (PELICAN, UNEARTHLY TRANCE).

MINSK has previously released two recordings; 2005’s full-length Out of a Center Which is Neither Dead Nor Alive as well as the band’s 2003 release Burning. MINSK will see the vinyl edition of Out of a Center… later this year. The band will also be contributing to the upcoming EYEHATEGOD tribute, For The Sick, with their rendition of “Ruptured Heart Theory.”

Dehumanized – Search For New Drummer

New York death metallers DEHUMANIZED have posted the following update:

Late last year drummer and co-founder of DEHUMANIZED, George Torres, stated that he will soon be forced to leave the band due to personal issues. He has a family and life to think about and those issues come before anything else. Since that time he has done his absolute best to help us out with playing shows until a suitable replacement is found. Unfortunately, that replacement has yet to be found, and the time has finally come for George to take his leave, whether we are ready or not. He will perform at our next 2 upcoming shows, but after that he will no longer be a member of DEHUMANIZED.

So once again, we are in need of a full time drummer. DEHUMANIZED is a Death Metal band based out of Queens, New York, with members from all over the 5 boroughs and even New Jersey. We have a worldwide following, and enough new material to record a full length cd. What we need is an experienced drummer who has professional equipment, transportation, and the time to dedicate himself to this band. You WILL get to play shows all over Queens, Manhatten, Long Island, and plenty of places in Upstate New York. We have also had many succesful shows in Rhode Island, Massachusettes, Ohio, and Maryland, and plan to play all over the United States, and eventually Canada, South America, Europe, and Japan.

Acumen Nation – Sign With Crash Music

ACUMEN NATION have finalized a multi-album deal with Crash Music, Inc. The band had this to say about their new label home: “We are all
psyched about signing to Crash. We spent three years recording and
producing this album (“Anticore“) and the end result was the heaviest
record we have ever made. We knew we had to find someone dedicated to the metal audience in order for it to be appreciated and Crash is exactly the kind of label we wanted to work with.”

In turn, Crash Music, Inc. could not be happier with the deal. Crash
Music, Inc. President Mark Nawara says: “We are all thrilled with signing ACUMEN NATION to the label! Everyone is really happy with how the album turned out, it is a lot heavier than the group’s previous efforts and we cannot wait to bring it to the Metal and Industrial masses!”

The Industrial-Rock pioneers recently completed their new album, entitled “Anticore“, and have scheduled the album to be released on September 19th. The new ACUMEN NATION sound could easily be described as hardcore tech-metal, finding companionship with the likes of POISON THE WELL and LAMB OF GOD as well as FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY.

Faster and heavier than anything the quartet has released before,
Anticore” retains their signature sound of complex minor chord melodies and harsh, intelligent programming while upping the tempo and attacking with cynical and emotional lyrics and hard driving guitars. The album also features Lucia from KMFDM lending her vocal talent to the track “My Life’s Last Breath“.
