WARBRINGER set to release new album ‘IV: Empires Collapse’ on October 15, 2013

warbringer

WARBRINGER  have been locked away in The Omen Room studio with producer Steve Evetts (Dillinger Escape Plan, Sepultura, Symphony X) for the past few months and are about to complete their next masterpiece, IV: Empires Collapse. The next level results of the new album are due to each band member pushing their own abilities and working together on the complex arrangements as well as the simple hooks.

WARBRINGER’s IV: Empires Collapse will be released October 15, 2013 via Century Media Records.  The band will hit the road in support of genre legends OVERKILL and KREATOR starting the night before Halloween in Baltimore and ends with two nights in New York City.

PROSTHETIC RECORDS TO RELEASE TESTAMENT VINYL REISSUES

CDTestamentFirstStrike

Testament-Live-At-Eindhoven-391895
Two titles by Bay Area metal icons TESTAMENT – one of the most celebrated thrash bands of all time – will be released on vinyl on Sept. 24, soon before the group will tour North America alongside Lamb of God and Killswitch Engage, two groups whose music they have undoubtedly influenced.

The 2001 anthology “First Strike Still Deadly” features tracks from TESTAMENT’s iconic first two Megaforce/Atlantic albums (which have sold in excess of 500,000 copies combined), re-recorded with modern technology by the four-fifths of group’s original lineup. The album has never been available on vinyl until now. Approximately 400 copies will be issued on 180-gram black vinyl; a limited-edition, 180-gram clear vinyl (approx. 100 copies) will also be offered.

Originally released in 1990 in EP format on vinyl and cassette, and finally released in its entirety by Prosthetic in 2009, “Live At Eindhoven ’87” – which captures TESTAMENT’s legendary European coming-out party – will now be available on vinyl for the first time in its complete remastered form. In addition, the new LP layout – which features liner notes by guitarist Alex Skolnick – pays homage to the original EP artwork and includes never-before-seen pictures by noted photographer PG Brunelli. Approximately 400 copies will be 180-gram black vinyl; a limited-edition, 180-gram white vinyl (approx. 100 copies) will also be available.

14-STRING GUITARIST FELIX MARTIN PREMIERES NEW PLAY-THROUGH VIDEO‏

Genre-defying 14-string guitarist FELIX MARTIN has unveiled a second track from his upcoming Prosthetic studio debut, “The Scenic Album.” Scheduled for release on Sept. 17 via Prosthetic Records, the album showcases Martin’s unique combination of instrumental progressive metal, jazz fusion, funk and world music, with additional performances by bassist Nathan Navarro – a fellow graduate of the Berklee School of Music – and acclaimed drummer Marco Minnemann (Necrophagist, The Aristocrats, Steven Wilson). Watch the play-through video for the three-part epic “Tango

Additionally, FELIX MARTIN has announced the completion of his long-awaited self-designed 14-string guitar, “The Jazz Metal Machine,” named due to its revolutionary concept that allows a traditional jazz guitar sound to be played with a huge amount of distortion – a previously nonexistent concept. Unlike Martin’s usual setup with two seven string guitars sharing one wide neck, this new design combines an 8-string neck with a 6-string neck and will also feature the first-ever 8-string jazz pickups (not pictured), made by Seymour Duncan.

BROKEN HOPE Unveils Cover Artwork for ‘OMEN of DISEASE’ Album

broken hope

BROKEN HOPE has unveiled the album cover artwork for their new, long-awaited album, OMEN of DISEASE. The cover painting was created by world-renowned horror-artist, Wes Benscoter (Slayer, Cattle Decapitation, Autopsy, Kreator, etc).

BROKEN HOPE’s Jeremy Wagner comments: “Wes Benscoter is one of my favorite artists, EVER. In my opinion, he’s right up there with Frank Frazetta, Michael Whelan, and Todd Schorr. Ever since Benscoter did our REPULSIVE CONCEPTION and LOATHING album covers, I?ve wanted to work with him again. I was beyond thrilled when Benscoter agreed to take on the OMEN of DISEASE project…and he nailed it! He’s captured the vile essence, putrid vibe, and apocalyptic, disease-laden horror of OMEN of DISEASE. Thank you for creating another masterpiece, Wes Benscoter.”

OMEN of DISEASE was recorded between two studios: drums were exclusively recorded at Belle City Sound in Racine, WI. with engineer Chris Wisco (LAZARUS A.D., JUNGLE ROT, ORIGIN, GORGASM), and the remaining bulk of the album was completed at Mercenary Digital Studios in Zion, IL. with engineer Scott Creekmore (BROKEN HOPE, DIRGE WITHIN, LIVIDITY). OMEN of DISEASE is slated for worldwide release in October via Century Media Records.

CATTLE DECAPITATION Releases New Video For “Your Disposal”

CATTLE DECAPITATION has launched a brand new video for “Your Disposal” from their most recent album, Monolith of Inhumanity. The band worked with Mitch Massie once again to create an irreverent, grotesque piece of cinematic artistry.

Notes CATTLE DECAPITATION’s Travis Ryan: “Director Mitch Massie has presented us all with a bizarre retelling of the story of Adam and Eve using themes from our latest album Monolith of Inhumanity. Here we see Eve giving birth to humanity, a living, breathing piece of primordial meat birthed into the dirt making its way through the Garden Of Eden, hell-bent on destruction…A clean and conscious monolith foretelling what could be possible given the fact that humans exhibit superior traits of intelligence, instead the earth is flooded with technological fallout and debris by the hands of man. This video is very much a prequel to our other videos ‘Forced Gender Reassignment’ and of course, ‘Kindgom of Tyrants.’”

CATTLE DECAPITATION is currently dismantling stages across North America on the seventh annual Summer Slaughter Tour. Presented by Indie Merch Store, ESP and Guitar World, this year’s lineup features CATTLE DECAPITATION alongside The Dillinger Escape Plan, Animals As Leaders, Periphery, Norma Jean, The Ocean, Revocation, Aeon, Rings of Saturn and Thy Art is Murder.

HANK3 Announces TWO New Releases. New Country DOUBLE ALBUM, “Brothers Of The 4×4” and New Punk Album “A Fiendish Threat”

hank3

The king of hellbilly, Mr. HANK3 himself, is pleased to announce a triple-threat of new releases, hitting stores October 1, 2013. HANK3 will release a brand new DOUBLE country album, entitled Brothers of the 4×4, and a single punk album, entitled A Fiendish Threat, with his new project “3“.  Brothers of the 4×4 will also be available as a single LP vinyl version, and A Fiendish Threat will be available as a double LP vinyl version.

Besides living the songs subject matter first, HANK3 sang and played both guitar and drums on the records. As if pulling triple duty wasn’t enough, he engineered, produced, mixed and mastered all the tunes as well.  Not bad for someone who in his own words is dyslexic and has ADD,  ccording to HANK3 “my mind is all over the place”. But even a man talented and driven enough to do (count ‘em) seven jobs at once has his limits, so HANK3 has once again assembled a top-notch ensemble of pickers and pluckers for Brothers Of The 4×4 and A Fiendish Threat.

The required stand-up bass holds the low end down at the deft hands of Zach Shedd, with David McElfresh and Billy Contreras whipping razor sharp bows across the fiddle. Daniel Mason handles banjo, with a special guest appearance on “Possum In A Tree” by former National Old-Time Banjo Champion Leroy Troy working his banjo in the old school clawhammer style, while Andy Gibson wrings the sweetest of notes out his stand up steel guitar. Finally, long-time collaborator and fellow multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire Johnny Hiland rips his chicken pickin’ guitar to feathers and shreds.

With Brothers of the 4×4 and A Fiendish Threat set for release October 1st, Williams is ready to hit the road, and when he hits the road, he hits it much harder than most. Hank 3 shows are legendary for their length and intensity, averaging three hours a night, starting with a country set and ending with whatever his latest musical experiment happens to be. For this touring cycle, fans will get to taste the hardcore punk horror rock of A Fiendish Threat, a rippingly fast blast of sounds reminiscent of The Misfits, Minor Threat, 7 Seconds, The Ramones and other punk rock greats that are as much a part of Hank 3′s musical identity as his country roots.

HANK3 Tour Dates
8/24 Austin, TX @ The Austin Bat Fest
8/25 Ft. Worth, TX @ Rail Club
8/26 Tulsa, OK @ Cain’s Ballroom

WARTORN: Trek To The Power Of The Riff Begins This Week. Joins M.D.C. And Opposition Rising Tour

wartorn

Following a short break after several stateside tours this year, including a hefty excursion with Raw Power, Wisconsin crustbrigade WARTORN will take their caravan back to the highways this week.

After a double-show kickoff in their hometown of Appleton this Friday, August 2nd WARTORN will make an eastward trek to Chicago to take part in the three-day Clit Fest alongside twenty or more underground bands, activism/rights workshop and more. They’ll then plow westward to rendezvous with Opposition Rising and hardcore legends MDC for a West Coast tour, including the two-day The Power Of The Riff in LA with The Obsessed, Final Conflict, From Ashes Rise, Hirax, Black Breath, Iceburn, Mammoth Grinder, Bastard Noise and a ton more.

Since 2004, WARTORN has assaulted humans live across thirteen countries in North America and Europe and released an arsenal of recordings on Profane Existence, Crimes Against Humanity and more before hooking up with Southern Lord, who released the band’s brutal Iconic Nightmare in January. Keeping up their raging tradition of pissed-off socio-political crustpunk/hardcore in the realm of Victims, Disfear, Words That Burn and labelmates Wolfbrigade and From Ashes Rise, Iconic Nightmare brandishes WARTORN’s most powerful warcries and energetic attacks to date.

MACABRE: Mini-Tour For 20th Anniversary Of Sinister Slaughter Begins Next Week

macabre

Chicago’s legendary Murder Metal trio MACABRE will embark on a mini-tour next week in gala of the twentieth anniversary of their seminal Sinister Slaughter album.

MACABRE blends elements of true crime, math rock, nursery rhymes, punk, thrash, folk melodies, death metal, jazz fusion, black metal and more into an energetic, catchy and unmistakable amalgam and signature genre, “Murder Metal.” Miraculously still comprised of the same decomposing torsos which founded the band in 1985 – vocalist/guitarist Corporate Death, drummer Dennis The Menace and bassist/vocalist Nefarious – the infamous MACABRE henchmen will stalk, slash and stampede their way through Kentucky, Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio with four brutalizing performances celebrating the passing of two decades since their maniacal Sinister Slaughter LP was released via Nuclear Blast in April of 1993.

Every MACABRE fan in the region should forge a path to one of these special shows, as the band will exhume hymns they’ve not delivered on-stage in an extremely long time. While the band is likely to pull some surprises and switch things up, the set list for these shows is rumored to include “Killing Spree,” “Howard Unrah (What Have You Done Now?!),” “Mr. Albert Fish (Were Children Your Favorite Dish),” “Montreal Massacre,” “The Ted Bundy Song,” “What?s That Smell?,” “Apartment 213,” “Dr. Holmes (He Stripped Their Bones),” “Konerak” and more, along with the Sinister Slaughter classics “Zodiac,” “Nightstalker” and “Vampire Of Düsseldorf.” MACABRE will bringing some new and classic merchandise on the road with them including Black Knight shirts, trucker caps, classic Albert Fish shirts, Established 1985 shirts, McMassacre shirts, girls slasher logo tank tops and shirts, Grim Scary Tales picture LP’s, patches, stickers and much more.

EXHUMED Exposes Impending LP’s Title Track

exhumed necro

As West Coast gore crew EXHUMED prepares to drop their fifth official studio full-length, Necrocracy, upon society in two weeks, today the title track of the splatter platter has been exposed. Stated founding mouth/throat/axe Matt Harvey on the track’s creation: “Not only is this the title track for our new record, it was the first song we finished putting together for the writing process and helped set the tone for the record. It’s big, nasty and heavy, like your weird drunk aunt that smells like Funyuns and laughs too loud at Thanksgiving dinner. This one has a little of everything, dual geetar action, fist pumping build ups, rapid fire drum fills and all the gore and grime you’ve come to expect from an exhumed track. Check it out and piss off some neighbors!”

A ten-track bloodbath of sonic severity, the record serves as EXHUMED’s most psychologically traumatizing, musically precise and lyrically profound creation to date. Necrocracy is clearly EXHUMED’s political manifesto for a new dark day! Recorded at Arcane Digital Recording in Chandler, Arizona with Ryan Butler (Misery Index, Landmine Marathon, Phobia), the drums tracked at Trench Studios in Corona, California with John Haddad (Hirax, Abysmal Dawn, Intronaut), Necrocracy will be released via Relapse Records in North America on August 6th, 2013, August 2nd, 2013 in Germany/Benelux and August 5th, 2013 in the UK/world and come available in CD, LP, deluxe LP and digital formats. The limited edition Necrocracy Party 2013 Political Rally Pack contains a deluxe LP plus a bonus CD with the entire album + five exclusive tracks, a pin set, bumper sticker and poster pack! Limited to a one time pressing of 500 copies worldwide!

EXHUMED’s ongoing European Takeover is wrapping up this week, to be immediately followed by an official LA release party for Necrocracy on August 8th. The Fall months will see the bastards hitting the streets again for a month-long North American trek with labelmates Dying Fetus.

FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE: “Labyrinth” Album Trailer Posted!

FGA

Italy’s Symphonic Death Metal horde, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, have posted a trailer for their upcoming album Labyrinth

“The concept of this album is based on the myth of the Labyrinth of Knossos and every character related to it,” stated vocalist/guitarist Tommaso Riccardi recently. “We focused on the philological aspect in order to represent all the elements of the classic world and, through a manic and meticulous research, we managed to create a  metaphor with our times, as the maze can be associated with the endless search for what we really are. We’re sure you will be stunned by this as much as we are.”
