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

Ghoul

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

tidd

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.

GOATWHORE: New Orleans Metal Legion Unleashes First Taste Of Constricting Rage Of The Merciless

goatwhore

Long-running New Orleans metal legion, GOATWHORE, are pleased to unleash the first taste of their forthcoming new full-length, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless, with seventh track, “FBS.”

Captured at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida with audio magus Erik Rutan at the helm, the deafening serenades of Constricting Rage Of The Merciless serves as the band’s first studio effort to be tracked to two-inch tape. A more challenging approach that demands performance over pro-tooled perfection and leaving little room for error, the ten-track, 37-minute offering marks GOATWHORE’s most well-executed, sonically devastating manifestation to date, its warm, organic production harnessing the thick, monolithic, recklessly war-ready tone and energy of their live performance in a way previous recordings have not.

Constricting Rage Of The Merciless is slated for release in North America on July 8th, 2014 via Metal Blade Records. The record comes in conjunction with the band’s Summer-long live takeover which includes a short run of headlining infiltrations set to commence on July 5th before jumping on this year’s crushing edition of The Summer Slaughter Tour alongside Morbid Angel, Dying Fetus, The Faceless and more! Additionally, the band will play a special performance at this year’s Gwar B-Q on August 16th.

Anthrax Announces “Chile On Hell” Live DVD

anthraxcoh

ANTHRAX have announced the release of “Chile On Hell,” a live-in-concert DVD that is set for a September 16, 2014 release.  “Chile On Hell” was filmed at the Teatro Caupolican in Santiago, Chile on May 10, 2013.

The band performed an extended set that featured songs from Anthrax’s entire catalogue – all the fan-favorites including “I Am The Law,” “Indians,” “Madhouse,” “Caught In A Mosh,” “The Devil You Know,” and “I’m Alive.”  “Chile On Hell” will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray, and was recorded in 5.1 Surround Sound.

“Santiago was the perfect place to film the show for this,” said Anthrax’s Charlie Benante.  “When we’d played there in the past, we’d finish our set, play our encore and go back to the dressing room.  But every time, the fans would continue to scream and cheer and clap.  I mean, they went on and on, they wouldn’t stop.  One time Scott and I walked out to the side of the stage just to watch what was going on in the audience, it was intense.  Why wouldn’t we want to film a DVD in front of an audience like that?”

“Plus,” Benante continued, the time was right to do this DVD.”  The band was in the home stretch of a three-plus-year campaign to record and support Worship Music and the Anthems EP, a period of time that was loaded with high points: the return of “classic era” vocalist Joey BelladonnaWorship Music making the band’s highest chart debut in two decades, the series of Big Four shows that culminated in the September 2011 Big Four spectacular at Yankee Stadium in the band’s home town of New York, “Anthrax Day” declared in the Bronx, becoming the first metal band to have its music (“Got The Time“) played on Mars, two Grammy nominations, and sold out shows in every corner of the globe.  “We wanted to finish on a high note,” Benante continued, “we didn’t want to look back and regret that we didn’t record the live show.”

VALLENFYRE to play Decibel Magazine anniversary show in October‏

vallenfyre2

To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Decibel Magazine will host two exclusive, blowout concerts on Saturday, October 18th in Brooklyn and Manhattan! The first show will take place at the Best Buy Theater with AMON AMARTH, SABATON and VALLENFYRE kicking off the party; afterwards, SKELETONWITCH and EVOKEN will headline Saint Vitus Bar (with another very special guest soon to be announced).

This special event marks VALLENFYRE’s first stateside appearance.VALLENFYRE will be playing in support of their recently released sophomore effort, Splinters. For a preview of the album, the video for the crushing title track can be viewed below.

Best known as a founding member of UK gothic metal pioneers PARADISE LOST, Greg Mackintosh transformed the anger and sadness ensuing the loss of his father into VALLENFYRE’s death/doom/crust debut, A Fragile King (2011). This heartfelt and cathartic release is now followed-up by the even more abrasive and extreme second full-length, Splinters.
