Karyn Crisis’ Gospel Of The Witches crowdfunding new album

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at 5:58 PM (PST)

The art and music of Karyn Crisis has been more influential to me than most other performers by a long shot. I have been a fan of Karyn’s unique blend of soul dredging in pursuit of finding the light out of the darkness for several decades now. It pleases me greatly to tell our readers that Gospel Of The Witches, Karyn’s most recent musical act, is working on a second record. But they need our help, fam!

The new record will be entitled Covenant.

Says Karyn, “It’s been a long journey since we last connected during the release of
Salem’s Wounds. While our debut began as a crowdfunded album, and was successfully released with Century Media acting as the last campaign funder, the band is now label-less. Century Media was bought out by Sony and Sony dropped GOTW (Editor’s Note: Sony, you morons). We will fund this album ourselves, bit by bit. We will record drums in the spring and continue from there.”


Once again, Karyn will have handmade collectible items accompanying the release of Covenant.
Keep an eye on the band’s facebook page, website, and instagram for updates: facebook.com/gospelofthewitches, @gospelofthewitches, gospelofthewitches.com vimeo.com/258785446

Karyn Crisis' GOSPEL OF THE WITCHES is now preparing their new album, "COVENANT" for studio. More details soon! vimeo.com/258785446

Gruesome complete new record, Summer European tour announced

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at 2:53 PM (PST)

Cool death metal news today as Gruesome have completed the follow up to Savage Land. Yes, the other releases from them were EPs. Their latest studio offering, titled Twisted Prayers, was recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Exhumed, 1349, Goatwhore, Wolvhammer) at New Constellation Studios in Orlando, Florida. Twisted Prayers follows Death’s paradigm shift during the Spiritual Healing era, incorporating more cerebral, melodic instrumentation with elements of thrash and thought-provoking, socially conscious lyrics. The record once again features artwork from the legendary Ed Repka (Death, Megadeth, Venom) and is expected to be released this summer via Relapse Records. Stay tuned for more info to be announced in the coming weeks.

Love this project, just a big fat Death appreciation party in good fun. You know each time Gruesome return that it will be a very metal time. The band also have a slew of Euro tour dates you can check out BELOW.

Omnium Gatherum working on new album, issue update

Posted by Metal Riot on Friday, March 2, 2018 at 1:58 PM (PST)

OMNIUM GATHERUM are currently working on their highly anticipated new album, which will be released in late summer 2018! Check out the below update from guitarist Markus Vanhala:

“Greetings from the studio vaults! We’re busy at forging the new OMNIUM GATHERUM album during the Finnish winter madness season – hopes are high here, even though the outside temperature isn’t. A lot of special good stuff is going on, and new adventures are coming up for camp OG. We’re just in the middle of recording guitar and synth stuff for the next album, and all I can say is that this is gonna be  one bad-ass album. Again we trust our good ol’ tour de force of Teemu Aalto doing recording and producing, and Dan Swanö who will fix it in the mix and master the universe. Everything’s been going really well and easily so far with producing this successor for the successful ‘Grey Heavens’, and I’ll promise this album’s gonna beat the previous one for real! The league of angry old men are here for your enjoyment! Already at this early stage it seems like this is going to be OG’s epic guitar heroism magnum opus… Maybe, haha… Me and Joonas have found some great spirit of the lost shred guys. All hail the almighty guitar and heavy metal!”

Following the recording session, OMNIUM GATHERUM will escape from the studio to get back on the road once again. Vanhala adds, “We enjoyed the Finnish-Icelandese rivalry of the ‘Arctic Circle Alliance’ European tour last year with Skalmöld and Stam1na so much that we wanted to do a European round 2. This time we’ll go to the islands of United Kingdom and Ireland, and also Scandinavia including Denmark, Sweden and Norway.” 

The band will also be seen on North American soil in the Fall alongside Amorphis, Dark Tranquility and Moonspell. Full dates are as listed below.

My favorite hard rock band Clutch, indeed the truest road tested road doggin’ purveyors of rabble rousing rock n roll in recent modernity, have done and entered the studio to begin tracking a new album and follow-up to 2015’s gosh darn straight up ear-aphrodisiac Psychic Warfare. Recording is currently taking place at Sputnik Sound in Nashville, TN with producer and engineer Vance Powell (The White Stripes, Red Fang) at the helm.

The greatest band on this scorched rock are also playing the Bud Light sponsored Rocklahoma in May alongside other greats like Halestorm, A Perfect Circle, Godsmack, New Years Day and Diamond Head (to name a few). Shit yeah to all that.

A mid 2018 release of the title TBA Clutch record (in progress) via Weathermaker Music is expected.

New York City-area powerdementia faction GRIDFAILURE has completed a new video for “Sew Nothing, Reap Nothingness,” while many other new recordings and projects are nearing completion for release in 2018.

“Sew Nothing, Reap Nothingness” is found on GRIDFAILURE’s I Shall Not Survive Another Winter, which was independently released on the Autumnal Equinox. Each song on I Shall Not Survive Another Winter grows longer than the one preceding it, the record exploring a vision of Post-Sixth Mass-Extinction Skullduggery which is the concept of the upcoming Teeth Collection and Drought Stick albums, portraying a grim vision of humanity’s future. A nearby reality where those who have survived mankind’s override by artificial intelligence, the ecological rebellion of our planet, and thermonuclear warfare amidst our own kind strive to rebuild society, and are continually thwarted.

See GRIDFAILURE’s “Sew Nothing, Reap Nothingness” RIGHT HERE.

Find I Shall Not Survive Another Winter as well as the Halloween-released When The Lights Go Out Vol. I – which is still available for free download – at GRIDFAILURE’s Bandcamp at THIS LOCATION.

With multiple new full-length titles, EPs, videos, and other projects in the works, GRIDAILURE is also heavily immersed in fully cooperative albums with a wide array of artists. The second collaborative album with Brooklyn experimentalist MEGALOPHOBE and a collaborative EP with upstate New York anti-folk/punk act WALKING BOMBS are both halfway completed. A collaborative EP with FYRHTU, a new project formed by Leila Abdul-Rauf (Vastum, Ionophore, Cardinal Wyrm) and Nathan A. Verrill (Cardinal Wyrm), is well underway, and a fully audio/visual collaborative release with PORNOHELMUT – the side project of Neil Barrett of Austin-based experimental/grind metal act Blk Ops and Novel Concept TV – is currently under construction.

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 at 2:42 PM (PST)

 St. Louis metal outfit BLACK FAST will enter Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, FL this week with veteran producer Erik Rutan to begin work on an all-new LP for Entertainment One (eOne). Known for his work with HATE ETERNALSIX FEET UNDERGOATWHORE and CANNIBAL CORPSE, Rutan was an easy choice for the band to produce their widely successful eOne debut Terms of Surrender. Citing the positive rapport between him and the band, Erik is very excited about working with Black Fast once again.

“We are super excited to produce the new Black Fast album,” Rutan says. “We had such a great experience working together on the recording of ‘Terms of Surrender’ and I know that we will step it up a notch in this next production. There is a certain chemistry that happens when as a producer you get to work with bands on multiple records and when everyone is on the same page like we are, fantastic things happen. Black Fast is such a unique band of incredible musicians and great people. I cannot wait to get to work with the guys again, capture their raging sound and stellar performances in the best way I know how! May the metal commence!”

Terms of Surrender, the band’s ferocious and thrashing eOne debut, is also now available on vinyl for the first time on the band’s official online store.

BLACK FAST is proud to share that they have recently joined the D’Addario and Co.family. Aaron Akin says, “We won’t play anything else since we found the NYXL brand. They are the loudest, clearest, strongest and most balanced strings out there. They are the only strings we use on the road or in the studio. D’Addario rips!” Black Fast shreds with D’Addario NYXL-1046 and Evans Drumheads. You can find their artist page here.

Nowadays you have a lot of caustic and rowdy bands from The Midnight Ghost Train to Couch Slut to Ken Mode, Chrome Waves, Fucked & Bound or Lord Dying to choose from, but was a time when Unsane stood nearly alone in the sludgy and anti-social face peeling department. Sure, bands like Today Is The Day, Helmet, Quicksand and Hammerhead held down the fort as well for mean and lean grooves with vocal bite, but Unsane were perhaps the most dangerous. You could smell the bum piss on a subway support beam and hear the screeching sound of failing brakes, the metallic taste of blood in your mouth and a fear spike of adrenaline amidst the careening guitar and rolling rhythms of Chris Spencer and his band. Matador certainly never put out anything close to as ugly as Total Destruction, a mandatory listen for any noise rock and extreme music fan as far as I’m concerned. I wore that tape out like a motherfucker.

Here’s the thing. Unsane STILL out rip most bands. By FAAARRRR. They make try too hard deathcore bands seem like a fucking joke to me because Unsane never had to work so hard to be intense and it comes off as a hell of a lot more authentic than a lot of heavy styles. Plus, that slide guitar and screaming telecaster! Totally pioneering shit. And seriously, what the FUCK was Hootie and The Blowfish thinking trying to name an album Scattered, Smothered & Covered?!! That shit is on lock. You might as well try to name your album Nevermind or It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back for how absurd it is to try and have the same record title as Unsane’s most famous masterpiece.

It has been five years since true to form stomper Wreck and awhile since I last saw the band with my friend Elodie from New Noise (France) fucking destroy Union Pool with the much missed Made Out Of Babies, easily one of the funnest shows I ever saw in my fucking life. I was just thinking YESTERDAY as the Comey revelations about Conald Dump heat up how I could really use some new Unsane to blow out my ears and vent out all the collected shit detritus and performative emotional labor of being part of society these days.

Dave Curran tracked the new album at Gatos Trail Studios in Yucca Valley, California, it was mixed by Andrew Schneider at Acre in New York City, and mastered by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering in Chicago. That’s a damn good team.

Southern Lord will release UNSANE’s Sterilize on September 29th, 2017 with cover art, track listing, audio samples, and more to be issued in the weeks ahead.

Advancing the release of Sterilize¸ UNSANE has announced a run of US tour dates from July 15th through August 3rd, booked around the band’s performance at AmRep Bash 17 in Minneapolis, with Fashion Week providing support for the trek. Additional tour dates through the release of the new LP are to be expected.

Tribulation have a few records, but it was the darkly romantic and brooding The Children Of The Night that thrust them to new heights atop gothic death ramparts and crusty crenulations. Truly one of the more captivating bands of our current age, refining like blood wine.

Tribulation recently published the following statement about the departure of drummer Jakob Ljungberg, who had been with the group since the album The Formulas Of Death:
“As the summer in the year of their lord 2017 draws near and the world in the north is again fully starting to wake from its slumber we, on the other hand, are forced to face an inevitable end in the departure of our drummer Jakob Ljungberg who has decided to leave the band. We have spent the last five years together through pain to heaven, in chaos to bliss! It’s been such a strange, wonderful, tiring and inspiring time and we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this time the most important in the history of the band. We surely couldn’t have done it without you. We were like brothers even before the time of Tribulation and we certainly will be in the time after! Make sure to check out Jakob’s unique and most excellent band Second Sun (https://www.facebook.com/Secondsunswe/) where he sings and plays guitar!”

Jakob Ljungberg also commented as follows: “It is with a heavy heart that I leave Tribulation. These last years have been among the best in my life, but they wore me out and now I have to continue life on different paths. Thanks to everyone involved – you made this journey spectacular, thanks to everyone that came up and said hi – it meant the world to me, thanks to everyone who believed in me – you made me believe in myself. Jonathan, Adam and Johannes: I love you. “The end of nights we tried to die – this is the end.””

But as every end is also a new beginning, TRIBULATION have already secured a new drummer in Oscar Leander and have further good news to spread: “After this period of silence, renewal and contemplation the time has now come to give you the new Tribulation! We have now fully immersed ourselves in the making of a new album that will be recorded at summer’s end. We are very pleased to announce that Oscar Leander (previously in Deathstars) is our new drummer. He will make his first appearance with us on Muskelrock now on Thursday, June 1st! Are you ready? We are!”

Stay alert for TRIBULATION’s new studio album which is planned to be released early 2018.
