WATAIN featured on TMZ for hurling pig’s blood into crowd during Brooklyn performance‏

This past Sunday (June 15th), Swedish black metal tyrants WATAIN returned to North America to deliver their infamous stage ceremony of blood, fire, and death. During this special performance at the Brooklyn Bazaar, the band hurled pig’s blood into the crowd, baptizing NY fans in filth.

While WATAIN’s Brooklyn concert will be the trio’s only US appearance of 2014, the band promises to bring their uncompromised live show back to the States soon. Fans abroad can catch WATAIN at various European festivals throughout the summer, where the band will be playing in support of their critically acclaimed fifth full-length, The Wild Hunt, which was unleashed last year worldwide via Century Media Records.

CONQUERING DYSTOPIA to release self-titled debut on LP via Century Media Records‏


CONQUERING DYSTOPIA, the project featuring guitar extraordinaires Jeff Loomis and Keith Merrow along with CANNIBAL CORPSE’s Alex Webster on bass and drummer Alex Rudlinger, has announced that the vinyl edition of their self-titled debut album will be released via Century Media Records and in stores July 7th in Europe and July 8th in North America.

The album was originally crowd-funded last year (and exceeded their goal in less than 24 hours) and released this past March. The all-instrumental album was mixed at Audiohammer Studios by Mark Lewis (DEVILDRIVER, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER) and contains 12 tracks that, in addition to Loomis’ epic shredding and Merrow’s insane riffs, also feature guest guitar solos by Wes Hauch (ex-THE FACELESS) and Ola Englund (ex-SIX FEET UNDER, THE HAUNTED).

The band was put together by Loomis and Merrow; Loomis previously contributed a guest guitar solo to Merrow’s second album, Awaken The Stone King, which was released in 2011. They quickly struck up a friendship and had the idea to record additional music together. Webster and Rudlinger soon joined the fold and the songs quickly came together. They decided to self-release the album and seek donations from fans to cover their expenses, thinking it would be a simple, low-key affair. Demand was so high and the reviews so strong that they were asked by fellow instrumentalists, ANIMALS AS LEADERS, to accompany them on their Spring North American tour. Given the strong reaction to both the album and their live show, new music and additional touring is certainly possible. Time will tell…

INTERNAL BLEEDING Completes Work On ‘Imperium’


New York death metal icons, INTERNAL BLEEDING, recently completed tracking their forthcoming new full-length, Imperium. Produced by the band and Joe Cincotta at Full Force Studio (Suffocation, Dehumanized, Mortal Decay) in Ronkonkoma, New York and engineered by Cincotta and Derek Boyer, Imperium serves as the band’s most sonically pulverizing output to date.

The band enlisted the talents of Suffocation guitar and vocal legends Terrance Hobbs and Frank Mullen who each make a guest appearance on the album: Hobbs with a ripping solo on the track, “Patterns Of Force: Act II: Plague Agenda” and Mullen with a twisted trade-off vocal alongside frontman Keith DeVito on “Patterns Of Force: Act I: The Discovery.” And to keep ties with INTERNAL BLEEDING’s roots, former IB throat Frank Rini also makes an appearances on “Visitant” and “Aftermath.”

FULL OF HELL & NOISEM Extend West Coast Tour To Devour The Country‏


Following the recent declaration that A389 combatants FULL OF HELL and NOISEM will wage total war on the West Coast US this August, today the threat goes nationwide as the bands now extend the raging trek to consume the entire country.

On August 13th, blazing death-infused divebomb thrashers NOISEM and harsh noise/powerviolence cultivators FULL OF HELL will unite at Jam 24/7 in Newark, Delaware beginning the grueling thirty-five city itinerary. The full tour, which runs counter-clockwise through the entire American population and includes eight West Coast shows with DropDead headlining, will come to a burning halt in A389’s hometown of Baltimore on September 17th.

Preceding the full US run, NOISEM will rip through audiences across the tri-state area in July, including a slot on the massive four-day This Is Hardcore Festival in Philadelphia, performing the opening night, Thursday, July 27th with Killswitch Engage, Unearth, Crowbar, Overcast, Ringworm, Xibalba and more. On Saturday, August 2nd, NOISEM will raid Colorado for the first of the two packed nights of Denver Black Sky II, joining Municipal Waste, Nails, Cephalic Carnage, Transient and tons of others.

Meanwhile, FULL OF HELL this week continues their European tour with D.O.C., with nineteen more shows to take place over the next three weeks.

GWAR Announces Additional Mutated Events And Familiar Faces To Make GWAR B-Q Even Wilder!‏


Keeping up with its theme of stacking up fun like bodies on a heap, GWAR announces several more outrageous events surrounding the 5th Annual GWAR B-Q (Presented by Ring Dog Rescue and Mt. Baker Vapor): the B4BQ and the GWafter Party! This means more madness, more music, more beer and more opportunities to suck up to – and get slaughtered by – your lords and masters, GWAR!

The B4BQ has mutated and grown to a size barely recognizable from its previous iterations – now sporting eight heads and functioning male and female naughty bits. Headliners The Black Dahlia Murder blast their Motor City madness at the B4BQ, Friday, Aug. 15th at The Broadberry (2729 W. Broad Street, Richmond VA 23220). Doors open at 7:00pm and the first band takes the stage at 7:30pm. Other barn-burning musical acts include Mobile Death Camp, featuring former Beefcake the Mighty Todd Evans; RVA’s own Gritter; the Texas rockers of Venomous Maximus; and Orlando punks, The Attack. For the math-handicapped, this means the B4BQ starts immediately after the end of the Oderus Urungus/Dave Brockie Memorial at Hadad’s Lake, Friday Aug. 15th 4:00pm-7:00pm. For the lucky Bohabs who bought Premium GWAR B-Q Tickets before they SOLD OUT, the B4BQ is FREE! Lower caste human filth may purchase tickets here. Tickets are limited. Act fast!

The weekend doesn’t end once your girlfriend leaves you for a slave and GWAR B-Q security catapults you off the premises. More drunken depravity awaits at the GWafter Party, held right after the GWAR B-Q, Saturday August 16th at a secret location to be revealed whenever the hell GWAR feels like telling you. Rest assured you’ll be able to compare stories, sunburn and exposed bone fragments with fellow GWAR B-Q patrons while you get elbowed by celebrity artists and VIP guests.

SKELETONWITCH have proven time and time again that hard work pays off. This fall, the band will continue to live up to their reputation as one of the hardest-working bands in heavy metal, as they’ve just announced a headlining jaunt throughout the U.S. featuring support from Ghoul and Black Anvil. The tour will kick off in early September and lead directly into another tour with Amon Amarth and Sabaton, which includes an appearance in Brooklyn to celebrate Decibel Magazine’s 10th anniversary. Overall, the group will play more than 50 North American shows over a two-month period, which recalls the 63-gigs-in-65-days whirlwind tour the band successfully completed to wrap up the “Forever Abomination” tour cycle in 2012.

In addition, SKELETONWITCH will spend several weeks overseas this summer, where they will perform dates with Suffocation and Havok in addition to appearances at festivals such as Brutal Assault, and Summer Breeze.

GHOUL: Masked Miscreants Announce US Live Assaults With Skeletonwitch And Black Anvil


Hide your children…and your dog. The masked miscreants in GHOUL 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, the band will reduce seventeen municipalities to rubble and snicker at the aftermath. GHOUL will be supporting blackened thrash headliners, Skeletonwitch, and black metal tyrants, Black Anvil!

GHOUL will be touring in support of themselves as well as their Hang Ten EP released earlier this year via Tankcrimes. Recorded by Salvador Raya at Earhammer Studios in Oakland (birthing home of  GHOUL’s Splatterhash, Splatterthrash and Transmission Zero), mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering with cover art by Sean Aaberg of Pork Magazine, Hang Ten is pus-encrusted sonic surf metal celebration, boasting guest vocals from Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste, Iron Reagan) as Henchman #1 and the inimitable R.A. MacLean (ex-Deadbolt) as Kreeg, alongside Digestor, Cremator, Fermentor, Dissector and The Moron Cavern-Shackled Choir. Picking up where Transmission Zero left off, the limited edition six-song (mostly) instrumental 10″ relays the tale of a Creepsylvania in ruins, and the terrible power struggle that ensues between two vicious motorcycle gangs.

TODAY IS THE DAY Joins Southern Lord Recordings; Tenth LP Coming Late 2014‏


Southern Lord Recordings is beyond stoked to broadcast that influential, visionary metal act, TODAY IS THE DAY, has joined with the label’s roster for the release of their massively anticipated tenth studio album later this year.

Early this year, TODAY IS THE DAY’s newest lineup was announced, as the foundation of the then unnamed album was taking shape. Guitarist/vocalist Steve Austin welcomed Sean Conkling (Regression, Burn Your Halo, Sprawl) on bass as well as returning member Jeff Lohrber (Enabler, ex-Harlots), Lohrber having previously handled touring drum duties for TITD many times in the past. Conkling and Lohrber tracked most of their sessions in December and January at the founding frontman’s own Recording and Mastering Studio in Maine. Since, Austin has been painstakingly layering guitars, vocals and more, and as the final sessions for TODAY IS THE DAY’s tenth studio full-length will be taking place in June, the band happily unveils the name of the impending LP, as Animal Mother.

Final details on Animal Mother will be released in the coming weeks as the album is completed. Stand by for further updates on the LP and on the live front as well, as TODAY IS THE DAY will tour North America and Europe immediately following the release of Animal Mother.
