Chicago based evil ragers Sons Of Famine have signed to Horror Pain Gore Death Productions. The band are not just a buncha edgelords, rather a collection of metal disciples including current/ex members of CorpseVomit, Lividity, Gigan, Kommandant, Summon, Yakuza, Nachtmystium, Evil Incarnate and Imperial Savagery. Though their facebook says they are “…anti-everything, and we hope you die a miserable death!!” That is slightly edgelordy. Thanks! They rock a lot, though. So…Hails.

The band have released their new EP entitled Alcohol And Razorblades as a Digital Album for only $4.44 ! Congrats to them on working with one of the cooler labels out there. Cheers to all.

Beloved groove thrashers Byzantine are set to prove the To Release Is To Resolve comeback album was no fluke. An as yet untitled record is due very soon from Metal Blade! This is huge and well deserved for such a seasoned a

Front-man, Chris “OJ” Ojeda had this to say about the band’s recent signing: “For the last few albums, we have operated outside the fringes of the music community by necessity. I had almost lost hope that we would ever have the chance to showcase our music to the world on a bigger stage. With the help of Brian Slagel and Metal Blade Records, we feel like Byzantine has been given a 2nd chance to make our 1st impression. We are absolutely thrilled at the opportunity to share our brand of heavy music with the world on the world’s best metal label!”

In regards to Byzantine signing to Metal Blade Records, Jose Mangin (SiriusXM Liquid Metal) comments: “As the most massive supporter ofByzantine‘s music since day one, we’ve known a secret that the rest of the world will NOW finally be able to realize, thanks to Metal Blade! The strength, raw talent, and absolute ease at which these West Virginians shred is a thing to experience, and it’s just a matter of time before they rise the ranks to become one of Metal’s elite!”

Lizzy Borden has spent over three decades creating some of the most theatrical metal in existence, releasing classics such as Love You to Pieces (1985) and Master of Disguise (1989), while obliterating audiences worldwide with a stage show that rivals that of Marilyn Manson and Alice Cooper. For his efforts, he has become nothing short of a metal icon. Now, to take the next step in furthering his career, Lizzy Borden has signed a worldwide solo artist deal with Metal Blade Records – the label that helped to launch him to commercial success over 30 years ago. Ready to once again captivate both veteran and adolescent metal fans alike, Lizzy Borden plans to release a new album in 2016 and tour the world in support of it, with a reinvigorated band backing him up.

Lizzy Borden comments:
“I am extremely happy to re-sign with the same label we started with all those years ago (Metal Blade Records). I’m excited to be working with Brian Slagel and all the Metal Blade family again. It’s been my home for all six of our (full-length) studio albums – with the new record being the seventh, and the start of a new series of albums to come.
My focus for the last several years has been performing live and exposing my brand of American metal to countries all over the world. Now I feel is the right time to step back and push the re-start button. Time to get back to the art of creating new music. Touring around the world and having new fans discover Lizzy Borden for the first time has been rejuvenating, and so a new album seems like the perfect way to bridge the past with the future.
I will take this part of my journey and these next series of albums as a solo artist, as I have for some of the past LBrecords and tours. I look forward to working with many different established musicians and friends, as well as some undiscovered talent like we have been lucky enough to unearth in the past. To all of our fans that have followed Lizzy Borden from the beginning and all the new younger fans who have just discovered us, I hope you will come along with me for this next chapter. I am inspired, excited and ready to begin again. @realLizzyborden”

Stay tuned for more news about Lizzy Borden coming soon!

PROSTHETIC RECORDS will be releasing legendary progressive metallers WATCHTOWER‘s recent digital-only tracks on LP and CD. The four tracks will be combined with one brand new song, creating the EP “Concepts of Math: Book One” and will be released on limited edition vinyl and digipack CD later this year.

 

Comments vocalist Alan Tecchio:

“I am so stoked to be a part of this legendary jazz-metal-prog group once again! Right now we are close to finishing the tracking for the additional 10 minute song that we are adding to the other four tunes. This will complete the EP that Prosthetic plans to release later this year. I can tell you that the new song is especially super cool and has that classic Watchtower sound. I think the fans, both new and old, will have a deep appreciation for what is going to be available from us later this year.”

 

Guitarist Ron Jarzombek further remarked on the partnership:

“I’m psyched to be on the same label as my old friend Marty Friedman! Prosthetic has also been home to great bands like Gojira, Animals As Leaders, All That Remains, as well as my fellow Texans, Scale the Summit. It’s nice to know we are in good company on this label. The music we’ll release later this year picks up right where we left off with ‘Control And Resistance’.”

Relapse Records is extremely proud to announce the re-signing of legendary death metal pioneers INCANTATION! The band, who originally signed to the label in the early 1990s and released some of the most influential extreme metal albums of all time, including Onward to Golgotha (1992), Mortal Throne of Nazarene (1994), Diabolical Conquest (1998), and The Infernal Storm (2000), has come full circle to reunite with Relapse for its forthcoming 10th studio album. INCANTATION, an institution for over 25 years, remains hands-down one of the most important, influential and consistently regarded artists in metal, and the band’s new material is sure to be no exception.INCANTATION’s entire back catalog is now available for streaming via the band’s Bandcamp page AT THIS LOCATION.

The band is currently recording its upcoming full-length at their own Incantation Studios in Johnstown, PA. The album will be mixed and mastered by Dan Swano (Bloodbath, Asphyx, Dark Funeral) and is expected to be completed in February with a release date slated for this summer. Upon completing the album, INCANTATION will head to Europe to tour with Morgoth, Darkrise and Omophagia. The band has also been confirmed for this year’s Obscene Extreme Festival in the Czech Republic and will announce dates and festival appearances shortly.

INCANTATION members John McEntee and Kyle Severn commented on the re-signing:”2016 is off to a great start for Incantation Death Metal!!! We are extremely excited to announce that we are returning to the Relapse Family. They were there a quarter century ago when Incantation and Relapse were both starting their careers, so to be able to come full circle and release our 10th studio album with them is truly amazing and we are looking forward to the release and touring this record later this year!!!!” -Kyle Severn

Yes it is true we have returned to Relapse Records. Over the last 8 years we have been working with them on various projects with great results. It’s awesome to start a new chapter of the band going back to our roots and working with the label that believed in us back in 1990 when we were still a demo band. It’s great to work with a label that still believes in us in 2016 and still believes in the perseverance of real death metal.” – John McEntee

Incantation are one of the true pioneers of American death metal and their unwavering dedication, consistency and longevity is unmatched. We are proud to welcome them back to their original home.”  – Matt Jacobson

Sludge duo Mantar from Germany sign to Nuclear Blast

d8f4bb39-b049-480d-a1db-78cf3d70e618

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.”

“We are very excited to have inked a deal with Agonia records. We strongly believe that Agonia will be a great partnership, and together we will push Threat Signal’s music to more listeners than ever before.

Emptiness have a new home with Season of Mist. I interviewed the experimental Belgian death metal band (and I do mean experimental) awhile ago for their last monster Nothing But The Whole and can’t wait to hear what scary music they make next. Like Hypothermia .Swallowed, or Harmonic Cross, the dudes in Emptiness seem more about creating a total mindfuck of a bleak vibe rather than adhering to expectation. I admire that greatly and kudos to Season Of Mist for supporting real art like this.

Regarding the signing, EMPTINESS comment: “We are currently working on the follow-up to ‘Nothing But The Whole’, for which our aim is to release it in late 2016 on our new label Season of Mist. We also would like to thank Dark Descent for supporting us in our decision and for helping to spread the seeds of the void. Important news will follow in due time.”

Secrets Of The Sky sign to Metal Blade

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at 7:37 AM (PST)

secrets-of-the-sky-photo

After touring in support of (the Metal Riot highly  approved) To Sail Black Waters over the past two years, Secrets of the Sky are back. They’ve completed tracking their sophomore album at Trident Studios with producer/engineer Juan Urteaga (Testament, Machine Head, Cattle Decapitation). Details and new music will be released this summer.

Secrets of the Sky comments on joining forces with Metal Blade Records: “We are very excited to be joining the Metal Blade Records roster. The Metal Blade legacy, reputation and commitment to heavy music has stood the test of time. The staff we have been working with genuinely “get” what it is that our band is doing and have been tremendously supportive of it thus far. We are also pleased to announce that our second full length will be released in the coming months. The album was again recorded by Juan Urteaga at Trident Studios and is another abstract concept piece. We believe we pushed ourselves in writing it to further develop our sound and we put more focus on creating a collection of songs that flow from beginning to end, while still retaining the cinematic qualities we originally set out with on our debut.

Metal Blade have really hit the mark lately with new music from Primordial, Visigoth, Motor Sister and now this great news, sure to fertilize minds with heavy seeds falling from above.
