The bands current incarnation with Andy Sneap (guitar) and David Bower (vocals) joining original members Kev Bower (guitar and keys), Tony Speakman (bass) and Tim Bowler (drums) will release the follow-up to their highly acclaimed debut Human Remains (2011) on November 22nd 2013 via Nuclear Blast.

The track list of The Age Of Nefarious reads as follows:

Side A:

1. The Age Of Nefarious

Side B

1. On Earth As It Is In Hell (live)

2. Blasphemy And The Master (live)

3. The Oppressors (live)

Commented guitarist Kev Bower: “In a world dominated by conflict, disease, corruption, poverty, disaster and crime – much of which has religion at its source – this is truly the dawning of The Age Of Nefarious. The song was always going to be the perfect opener for the new Curse And Chapter album since it lays the foundation for everything which follows, but when we were approached by our friends at Nuclear Blast with the idea of producing a lead-off EP, we also decided that out of four possible EP album track candidates – this song should also be the one. It represents everything which HELL represents – it powers along in awe-inspiring majesty, but takes lots of unexpected twists and turns before reaching its inevitable conclusion. The artwork is once again the result of our collaboration with Dan Goldsworthy, and it shows just a tiny fraction of the artwork he has created for Curse And Chapter. With regard to the additional live tracks – where better to have recorded these than from the main stage at Bloodstock Open Air 2013 – the spiritual home of UK Metal, during one of the best shows we have ever played, and in front of 10,000 of the most dedicated Metal heads in the world. We are proud to be giving you a glimpse into the second Chapter……”

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal albums, metal bands, metal music, Music, punk metal, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on August 15, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Toxic Holocaust - Chemistry Of Consciousness - promo cover pic

Portland punk metal hellions, TOXIC HOLOCAUST, are pleased to unleash their most volatile offering to date. Titled Chemistry of Consciousness, the devious new full-length spews forth eleven tracks of revved up, road-raging bestial devastation. Chemistry Of Consciousness was recorded by the band, mixed with Kurt Ballou (Converge) at his own GodCity Studio and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, From Ashes Rise, Nails) at Audiosiege Engineering.

Chemistry of Consciousness is the sound of Discharge on speed, Slayer with a punk rock chip on its shoulder, The Exploited on a Metallica overdose. It is the perfect marriage of punk angst and metal guitar hooks. If there’s one thing the punks and the heshers will agree on in 2013, it’s that TOXIC HOLOCAUST’s Chemistry of Consciousness is a rager of a record destined to top any worthwhile best of 2013 list. Recommended for devout followers of Municipal Waste, DRI, Sodom, Midnight, GBH etc.

Chemistry Of Consciousness will detonate in North America on October 29 (October 25 in Benelux/DE/Finland and October 28 in UK/World).

Further TOXIC happenings, including preorder packages and live takeovers, to be announced in the coming weeks.

Today, new track “Burned From Bone” — which the band debuted earlier this year during a headlining set at Pitchfork’s “Show No Mercy” showcase at South By Southwest — premiered on SiriusXM’s “Liquid Metal with Jose.” The song is available now as a free* download by texting SERPENTS to 24587.

Featuring former members of Spawn of Possession, Psycroptic and Space Raven among others, MEPHISTOPHELES is a four-piece technical metal band from Hobart, Tasmania drawing inspiration from the likes of bands like Athiest, Deeds of Flesh, Opeth, Cynic, Deicide etc. Originally formed by four high school friends in 2004, MEPHISTOPHELES has always been focused on the creation of memorable but challenging music, infusing Black and Death Metal with occasional Jazz moments. The band has continually thrived on fashioning fresh sounds that purposely step well beyond conventional genre structures, but have also maintained a firm footing within traditional Death Metal realms.
