V.O.D.  are finally working on a follow up to total slammer (and comeback album) The Cursed Remain Cursed. More than a rehash, the Long Island band are just as vital and fired up as they ever were. One of the earliest bands to play metalcore along with All Out War , Hatebreed and Unearth, the V.O.D. boys have always had a certain extra level of fired up intensity. Zeuss (Hatebreed, Hammercult, Arsis) is handling production and Candlelight will handle the release, expected later this year. Classic EP Still has also recently been reissued.

Born Of Osiris recording new album

Born Of Osiris were not only good when The New Reign was released. Only a moron would think that. A Higher Place is hella (yeah, I said it) underrated and this band is better than half the fans in their scene can comprehend with their limited musical tastes. The band have shown consistent drive to create meaningful music, regardless of any behind the scenes stuff or trends. A mid 2015 Sumerian release is expected for the next record, though no further details are available at this time. Hoping it will combine the heavier synth presence of TWDA with earlier heavy elements.  The band have been working new material for a few years now and I have a good gut feeling that they are due for making the statement fans/believers in this band have known they can achieve. Here’s hoping, dudes.

Fear Factory in the studio

As we count down to Thanksgiving there is more to be thankful for than just Keira Knightley’s recent fantastic non-photoshopped topless photo that should bring about world peace. Yes, Fear Factory are entering the studio again. One of my all time fave bands, I support the current line-up (though like most people the classic line-up is my favorite). It will be cool to hear human drums on a FF album again, as The Industrialist had great songs but the human machine percussion element was missed. I get that they wanted to embrace the mechanical concepts in different ways and they have always had industrial elements to some degree, but it’s always been cool that they had drummers who seemed like robots.

Anyway, the band posted this update via social media:

Day 1 tracking live drums with Mike Heller . Rhys Fulber Producing, Mike Plotnikoff and Damien Rainaud engineering

Once more into the cyber metal brink, boys. Hopefully this and the new Terminator movie will kick ass.

Faith No More new album announced, 7″ as well

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, September 2, 2014 at 9:58 AM (PST)

All sorts of kids, they love alternative!!!

Faith No More, who reunited in 2009 for a series of sold out performances and international festivals, is currently recording their first full-length album since 1997’s Album of the Year. When I saw them live in Brooklyn a few years back and they opened with the accordion to “Midnight Cowboy” I almost made a mess in my shorts.

 A limited edition (5000 copies) 7-inch single of the song “Motherfucker” will precede the April 2015 release, available via Record Store Day’s Black Friday event (Nov. 28).  The single will be released digitally on Dec. 9.

 

“We’ve always shared a chemistry between ourselves that’s unique to this band, but these past few years of touring together have made us aware that we not only play better as a unit, but we like the new stuff we’re coming up with,” explained Faith No More founder and bass player, Bill Gould. “So we’ve decided: we’re going to get busy in 2015…make an album we’re proud of, kick things up a notch, get out there and perform it and maybe even dedicate a little more focus to our fans in the States this time.”

The as-of-yet untitled album is being recorded in an Oakland, Calif. studio with Gould handling production.  The release will be the first from Faith No More’s newly formed imprint, Reclamation Recordings, which will be distributed by Ipecac Recordings.

Prior to the new album’s release, Faith No More will headline Australia’s Soundwave Festival in February 2015.  Worldwide tour dates will be announced soon.

Got this from the Slayer camp yesterday. I have always wondered how much that head tat hurt. Personally, I don’t think Jeff would have wanted the band to stop making music for all of their fans if he died, and I fully support what they are doing. I mean, this is mysterious. He could be drinkin’ a smoothie we can’t see and just happens to be next to a really nice console. But I vote…thrash!

downfall-of-gaia

Downfall of Gaia have just finished the recordings for their new album Aeon Unveils the Thrones of Decay to be released in the fall of 2014!

Downfall of Gaia comments: “All of us are pretty satisfied with the result of the new record and we are excited to share this new piece of music with the audience! The writing process itself became a bit more complex just because of the fact that our new drummer Michael Kadnar is living in New York and all of us are based in Germany. But in the end we were able to manage all of this in a good way, hit the studio and recorded our most aggressive sounding record till today.”

 “Once again we recorded at the ’79 Sound Studio with Christoph Scheidel and we couldn’t ask for a better guy! Mixing job one more time by Jack Shirley from Atomic Garden and master by Brad Boatright from Audiosiege. Anytime again, guys!”

 “The recording itself went pretty smooth just besides the annoying fact that all of us became pretty sick in the last few days of the studio and right before our European tour with Toxic Holocaust and Black Tusk, sitting there with a cold, fever and hardly able to talk, everything went just as planned! Definitely a funny pic to see! But for now we are happy to be done with the studio and can’t wait to play the new material live!”

Pierce The Veil tracking follow up to “Collide With The Sky”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, August 14, 2014 at 7:50 PM (PST)

Pierce the Veil, who rocketed to success with their 2012 release Collide With The Sky, have been sequestered at Dan Korneff’s Sonic Deris Recording Studio in New York writing and recording a brand new album due for a January 2015 release on Fearless Records.  As yet untitled, the highly-anticipated release is being produced by Korneff (A Day To Remember, Paramore) who worked with the band on Collide.

Vocalist Vic Fuentes began working on ideas as early as late last year and began writing new material in earnest this Spring. He and the band – Mike Fuentes (drums), Tony Perry (guitar), and Jaime Preciado (bass) – started preproduction in May in their newly-renovated San Diego home studio. In June, with 11 songs written, the band headed to New York to begin recording; nine of those songs are earmarked for the new album, and the band has written two more since.

Said Vic about the sessions, “We try to stay focused on writing and recording songs that we’re happy with, that we like, songs that will be fun to play live and that our fans will want to sing along with, songs that offer a little something different, but are all still very much PTV songs.”

Leading up to the new album’s release, PTV will co-headline 21 U.S. dates, the first leg of “The World Tour,” a five-month, multi-leg global trek, with Sleeping with Sirens. Confirmed dates for the first leg are below.

Kingston, NY’s hardcore kings Painmask are underground vets who real heads know have been in this dogfight for decades. Now, the band have an upcoming gig with Cro-Mags and Sub Zero in Poughkeepsie, NY

Says intelligent vocalist Jay Avery:

“Were really excited for this upcoming show and the chance to meet and hang with great local acts and support two legendary New York Hardcore bands. Both Subzero and Cro-mags have pioneered the style and scene that we have always been proud to be part of. We’re taking this  opportunity to introduce new members of the band and material that is soon to be released. We’re confident that the new additions to the Painmask roster will once again deliver! Were a solid group of lifelong metalheads with endless ambition. Our strict mission is to deliver the most intense, thought provoking, heavy music set one could ask for.  And If you don’t believe me come see for yourself. We offer a money back guarantee!”

I asked Avery how about the material they recently tracked with Joey Z. of Life Of Agony fame at various studios?

“Were working on final mixes with the new tracks and couldn’t be more happier with the outcome. We were a little concerned at first with the recent member changes, but what has emerged is incredible! Life’s circumstances have parlayed into something bigger and stronger then we could have imagined. JoeyZ really is a cut above to work with. His advice and professionalism is second to none! But with the recent resurgence of Life of Agony and their European shows this month, we’ve had to take a short pause from mastering. We should have these songs available by mid September. But if you’re one of the lucky ticket holders and we see you at the sold out LOA reunion on Sept 13 in Sayreville NJ. I might even have a copy for you.”

Coal Chamber are baaack, sign to Napalm for new album

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at 11:32 AM (PST)

10003974_10152152577901687_4935625288046270502_n

Coal Chamber and Napalm Records have announced the studio return of the Nu Metal West Coast spooksters.

“Napalm Records is pleased to announce the signing of Los Angeles, California’s COAL CHAMBER, a band that stood as leaders at the forefront of new genres, constantly reinventing their sound and not fitting any mold except their own. With sold out tours, and millions of records sold, COAL CHAMBER owned the Scene from the mid nineties until their tumultuous breakup in May of 2002. Now they have returned to take their place at the top where they once were and intend to be there for years to come. Call it what you want, ‘The Return’, ‘The Second Coming of’, but no matter what you call it, be prepared for COAL CHAMBER to rule again.”

I for one am psyched. Dark Days is way fuckin’ underrated (and incidentally was produced by my half-sister Stephanie’s uncle Ross Hogarth). I am very curious to hear what this band will sound like in 2014, especially since Dez has been on fire with Devildriver. I think CC are gonna hit it hard and be real hungry to prove themselves again, like on the fist album. Word up.

White Arms Of Athena are a band I just recently discovered and so I was thrilled to learn they are tracking a sophomore effort for Prosthetic Records.

I was just talking about this band on Twitter with some Coheed and Cambria fans and Neesh from Neeshcast Radio. Today I found out they’ve  recorded their sophomore Prosthetic effort at GodCity Studio in Salem, Mass. with acclaimed producer and Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou (Every Time I Die, High On Fire, Kvelertak). The as-yet-untitled album — expected to be released later this year — will be mixed by Ballou, engineered and co-produced by Travis Kammeyer (Storm of Light, Generation of Vipers) and mastered by Alan Douches (Baroness, The Dillinger Escape Plan).

The band, which has previously shared the stage with acts including Arsonists Get All The Girls, Katalepsy, Fallujah, The Contortionist, The Ocean, East of the Wall, Holy Grail and Baring Teeth, will release further information on the upcoming release in the coming weeks. Follow them on social media for the latest updates:

Full Of Hell to collaborate with Merzbow

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, June 9, 2014 at 10:16 PM (PST)

Full-of-Hell-7-e1401804393750

Powerviolence/harsh noise sculptors, FULL OF HELL, have just confirmed a barrage of upcoming recording and tour plans, including new tours on both the North American and European continents, as well as a joint release with renowned noise metal architect, Merzbow.

Following up their 2013-released sophomore LP, Rudiments Of Mutilation, and recently-released split LP with Integrity’s Dwid Hellion and his experimental/noise outfit Psywarfare, this Summer, FULL OF HELL will continue to explore their more caustic noise heredity by recording a fully collaborative recording with Japan’s longtime lord of noise/electronics, Merzbow. The album will see vinyl release in North America via A389 Recordings, a European vinyl release via Stab/Repeat Records, and CD/digital delivery via Profound Lore Records. Additional details on this undoubtedly demoralizing recording will be available upon its imminent studio creation in the coming months.

Additionally, FULL OF HELL will take the action back to the streets on another brutalizing tour across Europe for over a month, from today, Tuesday, June 3rd through May 7th, joined by Disciples Of Christ.

And this just in; this August, FULL OF HELL will destroy the West Coast US with A389 labelmates, Noisem, and headlining longtime political hardcore/grind act, DropDead. This eight-city run will tear a trail from Seattle to Southern California between August 22nd and 29th.

New England veterans WITHIN THE RUINS have announced the release of their fourth LP, PHENOMENA out July 22, 2014. The new effort will be the followup to the highly successful Elite full length released early last year. Elite was well received, Decibel Magazine called their sound “brutal yet harmonious, two traits few bands nowadays can handle simultaneously.” Metal Hammer plainly stated, “Precise, brutal and bursting with great songs, this fucking rips.” 

“We took six months off over the winter too eat, sleep and breath this album. It was by far the most in depth we’ve ever gone in the writing process. ” says guitarist Joe Cocchi. Within the Ruins recently posted an exclusive studio report with Gear Gods that sheds more light on the blood, sweat and tears the band has poured into this release. Cocchi continues, “Since the inception of this band our attitude has always been to completely trump our previous efforts in every aspect, and I think we did just that. We’re beyond stoked for people to hear this one.

The band just wrapped up dates supporting Whitechapel and Carnifex, highlighted by a knockout performance at the 2014 NEW ENGLAND METAL AND HARDCORE FESTIVAL. 

Within The Ruins just announced a headlining string of dates with LORNA SHORE and will supporting MORBID ANGEL, THE FACELESS, GOATWHORE and more on this year’s SUMMER SLAUGHTER TOUR. For all tour dates, click here.

High On Fire begin work on new opus

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, May 28, 2014 at 10:21 AM (PST)

California rock giants High On Fire have begin work on their new, as-yet-untitled studio album. The globally-celebrated group — guitarist/vocalist Matt Pike, drummer Des Kensel and bassist Jeff Matz — have convened for strategic writing sessions in both New Orleans, LA and Oakland, CA, with early reports indicating the band’s new material to be both “epic” and “sonically huge”. A winter 2015 tentative release date via eOne is expected for the new LP, the follow-up to 2012’s De Vermis Mysteriis, which has been hailed as “not for the faint of heart ” by The New Yorker and “a fantastically constructed bloodbath” by Entertainment Weekly.”Des, Jeff and I are really getting creative and writing a hell of a new record,” states Pike. “It’s a crazy project and I can’t really explain what it’s all about just yet, but we’ve been writing a lot of crazy intense material that will up the ante, and bring things to another level.”

“Everyone is asking what the new High on Fire music sounds like,” adds Kensel. “Chew on some mescaline and listen to side B of Sabbath’s “Master of Reality” backwards at 78 RPM and it might give you an idea.”
