Cast The Stone prepare to release ‘Empyrean Atrophy’ EP

Posted by longhairedpoet on Monday, June 4, 2018 at 2:21 AM (PST)

St. Louis metallers Cast The Stone are preparing to release their latest EP Empyrean Atrophy.

Empyrean Atrophy will be released on August 31 via Agonia Records.

Cast The Stone is Mark Kloeppel (Misery Index, Scour), Derek Engemann (ex-Cattle Decapitation, Scour), Jesse Schobel (Legend, ex-Scour) and vocalist Andy Huskey.

The cover art for Empyrean Atrophy was done by Gary Ronaldson of Bite Radius Designs (Primordial, Kreator, Napalm Death).

Guitarist Mark Kloeppel commented:

“The band’s sound is a testament to an enduring spirit thats driven us to return to our most organic influences, merge them together, incorporate disparate elements, and forge our own sound. Each person has a distinct sound unto themselves, so it’s really cool how smooth and cohesive this stuff comes across. You can immediately hear how different this is from the other things we’ve been involved in, yet it’s still very true to our individual styles. Our bassist Derek progressively weaves my guitars and Jesse’s uber-creative drumming style together in a way that only he can. This is all crowned off by Andy Huskey’s crazy death metal vocals which are… well, just listen.”

The first single for Empyrean Atrophy is due June 7.

Planning For Burial release ‘Quietly’

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, May 11, 2018 at 8:52 PM (PST)

Pennsylvania doom metaller Thom Wasluck, after releasing 2010’s Leaving wrote and recorded a series of EPs that have become known as Quietly.

Flenser Records writes about Quietly, Thom Wasluck and Planning For Burial:

“It was a tumultuous time in Wasluck’s life, and the songs he composed reflect the intense feelings of longing and jealousy that he was experiencing. As the title suggests, these tracks are more restrained in approach than the work which preceded them. They are also set apart from much of Wasluck’s other output by their recording process, which was largely done live with few or no overdubs in order to properly capture every emotion in its rawest state.

For almost a decade, Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania-based musician Thom Wasluck has been releasing his signature gloomy dirges under the name Planning for Burial at a nearly relentless pace. He now has three full-length albums (most notably 2017’s monumental Below the House) under his belt as well as countless EPs and splits. The Quietly sessions took place between 2011 and 2012 and will be available for the first time on vinyl from The Flenser. This new version includes a song that was previously only issued on a floppy disc as well as an unreleased track from the same era. This collection was remastered specifically for this vinyl release by Nicholas Wilbur (Mount Eerie) at The Unknown.”

This June 15th, theatrical hard rock hero Lizzy Borden will issue his first album in 11 god damn years, My Midnight Things, via Metal Blade Records. It will take very little time spent listening to the writhing hard rock melodic heavy glory of “My Midnight Things” to rest assured the band still mean business. This release will be super fun, I am betting. And we can sure use the attitude! Man, a lot of bands sure are dreary and lack any sense of adventure at the moment as far as persona  and rock n roll vibe goes.

“Although we have stayed busy touring all over the world, I missed being a recording artist. I look at the new album as a new beginning, I pushed the restart button on my career,” Borden comments.

The album can be pre-ordered via this link: metalblade.com/lizzyborden

Ministry’s ‘AmeriKKKant’ is in stores today.

Posted by Metal Riot on Friday, March 9, 2018 at 4:02 PM (PST)

 

At long last, the day has arrived when Ministry‘s provocateur-in-chief Al Jourgensen – never one to shy away from making political statements – can share with the world the fruits of what started as what he thought was a bad, bad dream on November 9, 2016…the day the world woke up to find that Donald J. Trump had been elected President of the United States.  Ministry’s AmeriKKKant is in stores today.

 

 In this “release day video,” Al provides one last look at what we can expect from the new album.  According to Al, the album’s lead-off track “Twilight Zone,” harkens back to the chilling moment of realization:  “How did this happen??”  “Victims of a Clown” looks at us, American citizens, we who were about to be led by a man with no intellectual curiosity or emphathy.  “TV 5/4 Chan” looks at Trump’s followers who get wrapped up in their little soundbites for TV, put out their own “fake news,” and then crawl back into the hole they came from.  “We’re Tired of It,” “Antifa,” and “Wargasm” make up a trilogy that screams “We’re not snowflakes!  We’re not going to be led around by the nose, we’re going to stand up for ourselves!”  The next track, “Game Over,” illustrates the realization of the “new reality” of what happened, how we got caught in Trump’s BS.  “AmeriKKKant” closes the album with a look at the journey of what’s been going on, what brought us to the place where we, the American people, would vote for a man like Trump.

MINISTRY – Song Topics on AmeriKKKant (OFFICIAL TRAILER)

The new Ministry album "AmeriKKKant" is out now! Watch as Al runs down all the song topics on the album and make sure to pick up your copy in physical, digital and streaming formats at http://www.nuclearblast.com/ministry-amerikkkant

Napalm Death release “Oh So Pseudo” single

Posted by longhairedpoet on Saturday, February 10, 2018 at 1:49 AM (PST)

British extreme metallers Napalm Death have released their first single, “Oh So Pseudo,” off of their upcoming compilation album Coded Smears and More Uncommon Slurs.

The album is due out March 30 via Century Media Records.

This is a compilation of “rarities and covers,” according to bassist Shane Embury:

“We are very thrilled to be finally releasing this compilation of rarities and covers from the past 10 years. Napalm Death is a band that gives 100% when writing a song, so the songs included on this comp were saved originally for split EP’s now sold out or vinyl editions of our albums or to become Japanese bonus tracks. When I was compiling the track-listing I was struck by how exciting again these tunes are to me. I had actually forgotten some of them, haha! We have written so many tracks and the years go by so quick that you forget just how fucking great these songs are! We will most certainly be blasting a few of these out live on our upcoming shows…Cheers and see you on the road!”

You can check out “Oh So Pseudo,” the tracklist for Coded Smears and More Uncommon Slurs and Napalm Death tour dates here.
