Venom Prison announce North American tour w/ Homewrecker

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, June 21, 2019 at 1:54 PM (PST)

UK metallers Venom Prison have announced a North American tour with Homewrecker. The tour will also feature Call of the Void, Joy, and Great American Ghost.

The tour runs from September 13th through October 13th.

Regarding the official tour announcement, Venom Prison commented: “We are pleased to announce our return to the USA and Canada this Autumn with the hellish union of Ohio’s Homewrecker & select dates with Joy, Call Of The Void & Great American Ghost. We will be visiting some new places and soon to be regular haunts – bring yourself to a date and show us how it’s done.”

Hey friends. So, the “President” thinks the Moon is part of Mars. Congrats to the tech death scene for being more scientifically accurate on weird space album covers than the fucking President at this point. Anyway, let’s get some weekend metal news going for ya on this fine Saturday.

First, go see Dark Phoenix. It was not perfect but was better than like 4-5 other X films (I didn’t personally like Deadpool 2 much cuz of the egregious excessive prison rape jokes). Sophie T was friggin’ X-cellent as a younger more insecure Jean coming into hard truths. I am confused since she already had the Phoenix Force in the Apocalypse movie, so that was weird. That said (SPOILERS), it is character driven, female focused, Nightcrawler goes HAM, there’s a Dazzler cameo, friggin’ Magneto has an amazing dirt of your shoulder train crunching scene that is almost as good as Luke’s shoulder brush off moment in The Last Jedi, there’s a Dazzler cameo and we finally have a good X film not overly dependent on Wolverine. While the alien villains are underdeveloped, I thought the Prof X/Beast/Magneto dynamics and the backstory childhood Jean stuff was very well done, the action was amazing, the ending was a beautiful send off to these films and overall while obviously not the classic comic the TONE very much suited and fit great with this particular franchise and what it needed. Jean’s protective motivations near the finale and love and emotion as strength mantra was beautiful and well done, the trippy Phoenix effects at the climax were super cool on a huge screen and I actually would go see it again today if I had the cash.

And the big weekend news is…Despised Icon are going to kick some major ass on their upcoming tour with slammers Ingested plus the very heavy Kublai Khan, and no joke Shadow of Intent. As if that wasn’t enough fucking legends Suffocation and Devourment plus Angelmaker, I Am, and I Declare War will appear on select dates. That’s a lot of mosh for anyone.

Ingested drummer Lyn Jeffs commented, “We’re stoked to be touring with our buddies in Despised Icon. This is something we have talked about doing with each other for nearly 13 years and we can’t wait to smash it with the boys in Canada and the USA this Autumn. What an awesome line up too, we’ll be joined by Kublai Khan, Shadow of Intent and in selected cities with the boys in Suffocation, Devourment, Angelmaker, I Am & I Declare War.”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Thursday, May 23, 2019 at 2:05 PM (PST)

Malta’s own Beheaded have released a new lyric video for their song “The Charlatan’s Enunciation.”

“The Charlatan’s Enunciation” comes from the band’s upcoming album Only Death Can Save You due out on June 14 via Agonia Records.

The track, coming in at just under four and a half minutes, is a lyrically dense tomb laid over a driving instrumental.

Fans of Cannibal, Aeon, Despised Icon and more will eat up the latest tune from the wildly talented very brutal tech death band, by far one of the most talented acts in the death metal world. I would lose my shit to see them tour with Venom Prison and Rivers Of Nihil, so let’s make that happen – ok, world?!

“I think this record we felt free enough to just go where we wanted to within a song,” states guitarist Jeremy Henry. “We had no qualms with switching styles and approaches from riff to riff. To have a whole section grinding away and then just switch gears, hit the brakes and drop a slow, old school Morbid Angel warship groove in there. We felt free to follow our instincts, and just let our influences shine through.”

This Friday (April 19th), Allegaeon will release their new album, Apoptosis, via Metal Blade Records. A near-perfect symbiosis of technical, progressive, and melodic death metal, Apoptosis is a record that is as crushingly heavy as it is inventive, lithe and intelligent, and marks a significant leap forward in the band’s songwriting. To hear the new single, “Exothermic Chemical Combustion”, please visit HERE.

Heavy Happenings: Ulcerate, Applaud The Impaler news items.

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 at 2:57 PM (PST)

 

For those who struggle with depression and mental baggage, it can be hard to look on the bright side sometimes. A chance to reflect and laugh at old memories or art that made you enjoy life more is an appreciated channel to allow better feelings. For that reason, I want to thank Inhale The Heavy for featuring me in their popular My Vinyl Offering series HERE. It was fun to talk about old memories growing up with my sister Cambria and talking about selections from my vinyl collection including Huggy Bear, Big Black, Van Hagar’s 5150 (we stan), Big Eyes and more. Hope some regular readers of this blog will check it out and maybe chuckle at a few of the stories.

Let’s get into some bad ass heavy music news for today.

New Zealand death metal trio ULCERATE have joined the Debemur Morti Productions roster. This is one of the most creative DM bands out there and they certainly deserve as much or more coverage as your Dying Fetuses and Whitechapels of the world (no shade, just facts). Gonna go rock some “Chasm Of Fire” after I post this.

Issues the band of the new union, “We are extremely happy to be moving head-first into this next chapter with a partnership that aligns so clearly with our own vision. Debemur Morti has always been in our peripheral gaze – the attention to detail and high level of curation is second-to-none.”

Further details on the band’s as-yet-untitled new full-length will be released in the months to come. In the meantime, don’t miss ULCERATE on their upcoming European tour set to commence April 10th and run through April 21st. The trek includes an appearance on this year’s edition of Roadburn. See all confirmed dates below.

ULCERATE:
4/10/2019 IF Performance Hall Besiktas – Istanbul, TR
4/11/2019 Roadburn Festival 2019 – Tilburg, NL
4/11/2019 B52 The Club – Bucharest, RO
4/12/2019 Armageddon Descends VI – Vilnius, LT
4/17/2019 The Grand Social – Dublin, IE
4/18/2019 Audio – Glasgow, UK
4/19/2019 The Star And Garter – Manchester, UK
4/20/2019 Nambucca – London, UK
4/21/2019 Exchange – Bristol, UK

Virgina Beach grind death band Applaud The Impaler have a new stream going on for Ov Apocalypse Incarnate over at Metal Injection HERE. The article calls them surgical brutalists, which sounds pretty Carcass-y. I am guessing you wouldn’t want them making you an omelet, and by making you I mean making you into an omelet.

The band commented on the release, “The day has arrived. Over the course of this second chapter in this tumultuous novel, I have seen the transformation of this band now reach its apotheosis in the arrival of Ov Apocalypse Incarnate. The grip of adversity has been relinquished, and the chains of restraint have been unleashed. We went for the throat on this one. The album takes the primitive elements that define Applaud the Impaler’s sound and infused them with an updated chaos implanted with esoteric ingredients, creating a stamp of unique savagery in today’s era of heavy metal. The 12 cut-throat tracks embedded in Ov Apocalypse Incarnate mercilessly crush from front to back, leaving no room for discontent. This colossal footprint of utmost carnal destruction is only the beginning. To those who have been foaming out the mouth for this record and have stuck with us through all these years, may you feast. Let us revere in this induced armageddon. Thank you Unique Leader Records. Thank you Erik Lindmark. Thank you Impalers.”

Whitechapel post “Hickory Creek” video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at 9:14 AM (PST)

Whitechapel have managed to combine being deathcore kings with a strain of Alt/Nu Metal influence in recent albums, and the new record The Valley finds them nuancing their sound to new highs and evil depths. It is already being called one of their all time best releases and is certainly intense. I would say it could certainly be up in their top 3 records. Their 7th full length, it releases March 29th and is arguably the biggest release of the month from a heavy band.

Mixed by David Castillo, mastered by Ted Jensen, and produced once again by Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, The Black Dahlia Murder), The Valley is a reference to the part of Hardin Valley (west of Knoxville, Tennessee) where vocalist Phil Bozeman grew up. Set against this backdrop, he approaches his subject matter unflinchingly, building upon everything that came before, making it clear that he has survived that which he was forced to endure and is not afraid to confront it.

“Phil has been upfront in his lyrics in the past about hardships he endured in his life as a child, and I believe with this record we tried to paint a better picture of that,” says guitarist Alex Wade, who alongside his bandmates, stands 100% behind everything their vocalist has to say. “I feel our music is Phil’s release from his past, being able to get it out and speak about it, and hopefully anyone who hears it that may have gone through similar experiences can find some release in it as well.”

French death metal and Unique Leader artists DYSMORPHIC have a new playthrough video out for brave souls who want to navigate the impressive guitar and bass parts for “Vow Of The Bees.” While there is plenty of technical flourish, the song also has some pretty impressive emotional feeling in the playing – particularly near the climax of the composition.

The group commented on the gear used, “Eric plays an Ibanez RGD UCS with a set of Bareknuckle Aftermaths through a Fractal Axe-FX II. Francois plays a Mermet Guitars Custom FLL7 with a set of Bareknuckle Juggernauts, also through an Axe-FX II. Johann plays an Ibanez SR1805NTF through an Ampeg.”

Watch the playthrough video HERE.

Beyond Creation, Origin, Decrepit Birth, Augury fans etc. will be stoked on this. These guys are really tight and into what they do. You don’t get this good without passion for it. I strongly recommend An Illusive Progress.

DYSMORPHIC will also be playing a series of shows in France this month.

Dates below –
3/15 Toulouse, FR @ Cave A Rock
3/16 Bordeaux, FR @ La Voute
3/23 Paris, FR @ Le Cirque Electrique

Born Of Osiris are one of the ultimate progressive metalcore bands and have earned their position as leaders in the metallic sub-genre through constant work and dedication. It sucks to learn that some dangerous jerk robbed guitarist Lee McKinney and had a knife. We hope Lee and Jo get justice in this matter and are glad no one was harmed:

Hey guys. Lee McKinney here. Last night on Monday, March 12, our house was burglarized. The intruder(s) had a knife that was left on the scene and that makes us feel like the intent was to potentially do more than walk out with material items. Stolen items include a TV, 5 guitars, 1 audio interface, 4 guns, 1 camera, and 1 amplifier. Pictures of the stolen guitars are attached. We have notified the local police. A full investigation is underway. This robbery feels like it was targeted for the studio for exactly the time we were on tour or at work, as we were not home. We’re hoping that by bringing this to public attention that anyone who sees one of these items on sale in any way could help us track down the person who did this. Material items are one thing, but justice against the person who came into our home with a weapon is of the utmost importance. Thank you for your time.
Serial numbers for the missing instruments are:

Walnut LPM7 – 69540
Honey V6X – 132686
Monster O7X – 139438
Sea Foam VB5 – 139204

Gore/death metallers Exhumed are a legendary act known for lots of destroyed guts in their aesthetic. Who knew that included not only chainsaw mauling but also extended to cover guts destroyed by hot peppers?!! Who among us knew?!! The band have teamed with Hella Hot Sauce to create Forged In Fire Sauce and are taking it on the road on their latest tour.

I had the Bad Brains hot sauce once when Doc thoughtfully gave me some to try and I loved it. I think hot sauce is a neat merch item. Bands make a lot of beer these days but hot sauce seems a little more niche and inventive, honestly. Like, who really expects that? Anyway, it is kind of funny Exhumed are bringing their hot sauce on the road with them though cuz it reminds me vaguely of this kid I knew who once said he thought bands should have salad bars as opening acts. Random.

Frontman Matt Harvey talked a little about the tour and the “meet-and-eat” events that will be unique to each show:

“We’re excited to do something a little different this time. It’s gonna be fun to do something food-related every night and see people’s reactions first-hand to the hot sauce, and since it’s called Forged in Fire, we’re loading up the set with older stuff we haven’t played in years, so it should be a rager every night!”

Check your local show for more information about when to show up and face the heat. As well as featuring a setlist focused on their early material, the band will be selling limited quantities of “Forged in Fire” hot sauce and a special shirt design exclusive for this tour, so come out and get your face melted!

If I had $100 I would bet you that some hot sauce ends up covering someone in the mosh pit on more than one of these dates. I feel bad for any venue janitor who has to clean up hot sauce and beer shit bathrooms! Can we get a new song called The Gravemakers of Eatin’ Burgs? Ok, I am stopping now.

EXHUMED Tour Dates:
4/24 San Luis Obispo, CA – The Graduate
4/25 Mesa, AZ – Club Red (w/Lago)
4/26 Los Angeles, CA – 5 Star Bar
4/27 Oakland, CA – Eli’s Mile High Club (w/Necrot)
4/28 Portland, OR – Tonic Lounge

Entombed to release ‘Clandestine – Live’ in May 2019

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, February 25, 2019 at 9:18 AM (PST)


ENTOMBED featuring original members Nicke Andersson, Uffe Cederlund and Alex Hellid invite you to hear the unique experience of the band performing their second album Clandestine in full live for the first time ever for the album’s 25th Anniversary.

Threeman Recordings presents Act 2: The Entombed performance – A concert in two acts based entirely on the Swedish band’s acclaimed album Clandestine from 1991. It is a unique concert where the pioneering album is played from beginning to end. From the opening track “Living Dead” to closer “Through The Collonades “.

In the first act, the Malmö Symphony Orchestra and Choir performs Clandestine, arranged for orchestra by Thomas Von Wachenfeldt (Wachenfeldt), with the original members from Entombed sitting in as part of the ensemble. In the second act, the band performs the entire album live in the original version for the very first time.

Alex Hellid comments:
“It is amazing to experience the musical journey with an orchestra and we really enjoyed the experience”

Conductor Josef Rhedin adds:
“Allowing Entombed’s suggestive music to meet Symphony Orchestra and Choir is a very creative and exciting concept. Composer Thomas Von Wachenfeldt’s arrangement contains challenges for both orchestral musicians and for me as a conductor, as the starting point has been to interpret the “Clandestine” in a classical, symphonic format, rather than plank the music outright”
