Good morning, ragers. Today’s news might seem a bit schizo, as Soulfly, Suffocation and Battlecross don’t seem at first like the most similar of bands, but they are all touring together and it is sure to be a memorable and awesome trek. I’m listening to Death Angel’s classic “Why You Do This” from the Frolic In The Park re-issue right now and thinking about how metal is really for all kinds of people, so to me this tour seems refreshing rather than a “get people in the door by any means” gambit. Heck, these days bigger bands need to stick together anyway as it not only gives fans more but it is expensive to tour. And it is cool to show more death metal types the groove of Soulfly or the spastic thrash attack of Battlecross can also be cool or for Suffocation to destroy people not used to a band that heavy.

Abnormality and Lody Kong are also along for the US batch of dates, which you can see below.

Deftones announce tour dates for Spring

Taking a break from watching that surprisingly funny Netflix show Love to tell you kids that Deftones have a bevvy of upcoming shows (including a SXSW Spin showcase date avec CHVRCHES). I for one am stoked to hear more of GORE, despite Deftones own guitarist not seeming as keen on it in recent comments as the rest of the band. He probably was exaggerating his displeasure at the current direction however, since for the last 4 album press cycles or whatever Stephen Carpenter has been saying he loves Meshuggah in practically every interview.

What has always made Deftones great (and why I particularly love the S/T record best) is their variety but ability to also still deliver the heavy. As long as they don’t transform into Team Sleep (which would be odd since Deftones were in full swing first) there is room for Deftones to keep their experimental and pretty side flourishing.

Anyway, these dates are sure to feature a variety of tunes for fans of different eras. Dates below.

Slayer tease “You Against You” video, start tour Friday

Slayer are back with as much vitriol as Kimbo Slice and Dada 5000 getting ready to kick the shit out of one another. The “You Against You” teaser features airplane wreckage, some gunfire, Paul Bostaph beating the shit out of his kit and a sort of Krokus post-apocalypse vibe, if thrash. I can dig it.

Even old guy Slayer rip the heads off most younger, stupid metal bands. And especially more prog death core butt rocker bands.

I will always stand by that.

Tom Araya had your back but it’s no use, scene kids.

Sludge duo Mantar from Germany sign to Nuclear Blast

Northern Germany’s infernal extreme metal duo, MANTAR, will release their Nuclear Blast debut Ode To The Flame worldwide on April 15th.

 

Comments the band of the offering: “The title Ode To The Flame is chosen in tradition of the debut record, Death By Burning to maintain the cleansing power of fire as the key theme. Fire is able to reset anything and will erase this planet one day from any plague that’s been around. Furthermore it’s obviously an ode to passion and iron will. Ode To The Flame isn’t dramatic, it’s drastic. By all means. We discussed the possibility of having no cover at all,” the band continues of the minimalist cover art shrouding Ode To The Flame, “We kinda liked the idea of boycotting the need of any so called ‘art’ which bands try to get people’s attention with. The theme of the record is so one-dimensional and obvious that we decided to skip artwork and just put the title on the record to make it look more like an old book. A manifest, a challenge. We don’t want people to speculate about any meaning. The meaning is clear: kill, destroy, fuck shit up.”

 

Watch the official in-studio video teaser as well as a teaser of the track “Era Borealis” AT THIS LOCATION.

The Sword announce tour dates w Purson, Royal Thunder

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Sunday, January 31, 2016 at 10:00 AM (PST)

Sword

The Sword, Purson and Royal Thunder are arguably all bands with some of the most top notch actual “song writing” going on these days in rock and metal. They make other bands look foolishly outclassed, honestly.

You can pick up any album by The Sword and, like Fu Manchu, Zeke , Hellacopters or Karp before them, likely have your day straightened out.

The Contortionist will hit the road yet again this spring in continued support of their latest release. Monuments, Entheos and Sleepmakeswaves will serve as support through the end of April. “Over the months of touring behind Language, we would imagine an ideal lineup and the same names kept coming up,” says keyboardist Eric Guenther. “We always get psyched on tours with huge variety and dynamic shifts through every band.”

“The spring tour is going to be stacked, no exception. We are hitting the road with our friends on a tour we have been working to get together since ‘Language’ came out. We can’t wait to bring this spectacle around the U.S.”
