Chicago’s Murder Metal trio, MACABRE, is set to rampage across the US on a headlining twenty-four city slaughter spree this October. Joined by openers, Panzerfaust, and with direct support from the mighty Ringworm, MACABRE will spread their grisly tales of terror across the country from October third through Halloween night. The trek includes participation in Philip H. Anselmo’s second annual Housecore Horror Film Fest in Austin, alongside Gwar, Voivod, Neurosis, Danzig, Samhain, Eyehategod, Vader, Corrections House, Lustmord and others.

After returning home to resupply with fresh provisions, just a week-and-a-half later MACABRE will caravan through the Midwestern region on a brutal escapade as direct support for the legendary Carcass. The five-date invasion will see Pontiac, Grand Rapids, Madison, Des Moines and Joliet ravaged by the vicious lineup, which also includes the berserk invigoration of Exhumed and Noisem.

MACABRE will also be headlining the Chicago Music Factory and Rebel Radio’s seventeenth annual Holiday Of Horrors in their hometown on December 26th, joined by Jungle Rot, Scythe and Armored Assault.

Established in 1985, MACABRE’s methodical and unique auditory executions have delivered tales of true crime, serial killers and mass murderers to life through a sick synthesis of math rock, nursery rhymes, punk, thrash, folk melodies, death metal, jazz fusion, black metal and more into an energetic, catchy and unmistakable amalgam. Murder Metal refers to MACABRE’s signature style. It’s a genre of one.

New MACABRE merch is available at the band’s official macabre merchandise store HERE, and a limited edition version of their seminal Sinister Slaughter LP will be available on murdermetal.com soon.

GOATWHORE – Readies For Forthcoming Live Assaults; Additional Dates Announced

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on September 12, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Goatwhore - promo band pic - 2014 - #66754

Louisiana blackened thrash perpetrators, GOATWHORE, are currently readying for their next round of headlining live assaults. Slated to commence in Houston on September 15th, the band will quash nearly two dozen US cities including recently added dates in Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois, New York, Virginia, Georgia and Florida as well as five shows supporting death rock/horror punk icons, Samhain! From there, GOATWHORE will bring their canticles of chaos overseas for a European invasion with Dying Fetus, Malevolence and Fallujah. The lengthy expedition embarks on November 8th in Liege, Belgium and comes to a ceremonial close on December 19th in Hamburg, Germany.

Due to the upcoming birth of his first son, GOATWHORE bassist James Harvey will be sitting out both tours. In the interim, the band has enlisted bassist TA from San Antonio blackened death horde, HOD.

Comments Harvey of his absence, “Unfortunately, I will be staying home for the upcoming tour dates with Samhain as well as the European tour with Dying Fetus. This is due to the upcoming birth of my first son by my longtime girlfriend, Lorrena. He is due between the middle and the end of September and I will be staying home to fulfill my paternal duties. Obviously we have known about this for months and have planned accordingly – our friend TA from the Texas band, HOD, will be filling in on bass duties for the upcoming US tour. I am bummed that I will not be able to go back out on the road for the rest of the year, but I’m sure everyone understands the gravity of welcoming a new life into the world. I wish the best of luck to the guys on the upcoming runs and hope to see everyone soon.”

ANTHRAX – TO RELEASE ‘CHILE ON HELL’ DVD ON THE 16TH OF SEPTEMBER

Posted in metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 7, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Anthrax - Chile On Hell - promo cover pic - 2014

From Nuclear Blast:

Get ready to mosh in the privacy of your own home, because multiple Grammy-nominated thrash masters ANTHRAX have announced the release of “Chile On Hell”, a live-in-concert DVD that is due on September 16th. “Chile On Hell” was filmed at the Teatro Caupolican in Santiago, Chile on May 10, 2013 and features ANTHRAX performing an extended set that featured songs from the band’s entire catalogue.

“Chile On Hell” will be available on DVD and Blu-ray and 2 Live CDs, was recorded in 5.1 Surround Sound, and will retail for $16.98.

“Santiago was the perfect place to film the show for this,” said ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante. “When we’d played there in the past, we’d finish our set, play our encore and go back to the dressing room. But every time, the fans would continue to scream and cheer and clap. I mean, they went on and on, they wouldn’t stop. One time Scott [Ian, guitar] and I walked out to the side of the stage just to watch what was going on in the audience, it was intense. Why wouldn’t we want to film a DVD in front of an audience like that?

“Plus,” Benante continued, “the time was right to do this DVD… We wanted to finish on a high note. We didn’t want to look back and regret that we didn’t record the live show.”

“Chile On Hell” was produced by Jay Ruston and filmed by City Drive Entertainment Group and DC3 Global. The DVD’s cover art was designed by Stephen Thompson, who partnered with Benante to “redesign” the artwork from last year’s “Anthems” EP.

The band’s setlist was as follows:

  1. Among The Living
  2. Caught In A Mosh
  3. I Am The Law
  4. Efilnikufesin (N.F.L.)
  5. A Skeleton In The Closet
  6. March Of The S.O.D. (STORMTROOPERS OF DEATH cover)
  7. In The End
  8. Deathrider
  9. T.N.T. (AC/DC cover)
  10. I’m Alive
  11. Indians
  12. Medusa
  13. In My World
  14. Got The Time (Joe Jackson cover)
  15. Fight ‘Em ‘Til You Can’t

Encore:

  1. I’m The Man / Raining Blood (SLAYER cover)
  2. Madhouse
  3. Antisocial (TRUST cover)

HIDEOUS DIVINITY – Italian Death Legion Gets “Sinister And Demented” At Decibel Magazine; “Cobra Verde” Preorders Available

Posted in Death Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on September 5, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Hideous Divinity - Cobra Verde - promo cover pic

Italian Death Metal horde, HIDEOUS DIVINITY, who feature within their ranks former members of Hour Of Penance and Ghouls, is preparing to unleash Cobra Verde, their second full-length via Unique Leader next month.

Featuring nine hymns of hate and contempt, Cobra Verde was recorded at 16th Cellar Studios (House Of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Trifixion, Vomit The Soul et al), boasts a guest vocal appearances by Nile’s Dallas Toler-Wade, a crushing cover of Ripping Corpse’s “The Last And Only Son” and is a true must-have for devout followers of obscure and intense death metal a la Nile, Immolation with the lysergic influences of Ulcerate.

In celebration of its imminent rule, Decibel Magazine, who applauds HIDEOUS DIVINITY’s “uber-brutal, churning platter of tech-y death metal,” offers up the fittingly titled fifth cut “Sinister And Demented,” for your weekend listening pleasures at THIS LOCATION.

Cobra Verde – Track Listing:

1. In My Land I Was A Snake
2. The Somber Empire
3. Cobra Verde
4. Salt In The Martyr’s Tear
5. Sinister And Demented
6. Desolation Within
7. The Alonest Of The Alone (featuring Nile’s Dallas Toler-Wade)
8. Adijnakou
9. The Last And Only Son (Ripping Corpse cover)

Hideous Divinity - Cobra Verde - promo album banner - 2014 - #9192

Born between Italy and Norway in late 2006 as a side project of Hour Of Penance founder Enrico Schettino, HIDEOUS DIVINITY immediately earned underground accolades thanks to their Sinful Star Necrolatry two-track demo, an intriguing mesh of European and American extremities released at the end of 2007. It wasn’t until 2010 that the band, with their first stable lineup, would perform live with longstanding comrades, Insision. In the interim, new songs were composed with their European Death/Black influences giving way to a more mindful, complex yet straight-in-your-face Death Metal assault in the vein of Nile, Immolation and Hate: the embryo of their first full-length release.

Following another successful appearance in Scandinavia at the end of April 2012, this time for the prestigious Inferno Festival in Oslo, Norway, a three-album deal with Unique Leader Records was forged. In late July 2011 the band entered 16th Cellar to record their Obeisance Rising debut. The lyrical concept is based on John Carpenter’s immortal masterstroke They Live, a dramatically relevant testimony of a dark era that never ended.

“In this place, the dead are more alive than the living.”
A new era has come for HIDEOUS DIVINITY. Join the slavery.

Cobra Verde will be released in the US on October 28th, 2014, the UK on October 27th and the rest of Europe on October 31st. Preorder your copy at THIS LOCATION.
