Steven Tucker - Warfather - Morbid Angel - promo photo - 2015 - #m033MSNIL

Death Metal horde WARFATHER have entered Mana Studios in recent days, to begin tracking the as-of-yet untitled follow-up to 2014’s Orchestrating the Apocalypse. The band’s sophomore full-length album will be released on Greyhaze Records.

Masterminded by Death Metal veteran Steven Tucker, who recently rejoined MORBID ANGEL, WARFATHER has tapped Erik Rutan to produce the new material. The album will mark the first time Tucker and Rutan have officially worked together since MORBID ANGEL’s Gateways to Annihilation.

Studio updates and album details will be revealed soon.

Orchestrating the Apocalypse is currently available on Digipak CD and digital formats via Greyhaze Records.

SKINLESS – Reactivated New York Death Metal Unit Announces Fall Live Incursions; Free Download Of “Satan Is Living” Available At Recently Launched Merch Store

Posted in Death Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music with tags , , , , on July 15, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Skinless - Fall Tour - 2015 - promo flyer - #MODMGNSMIL

Reactivated New York Death Metal unit, SKINLESS, will level stages this Fall on a medley of live takeovers. The onstage debauchery includes performances in Montreal, Clifton Park, Boston, Brooklyn and Philadelphia as well as a co-headlining stint with Pig Destroyer on this year’s edition of Denver Black Sky in December. Additional onstage infiltrations are currently in their plotting stages.

Comments the band: “We’re stoked to have the opportunity to shred in some of our favorite cities! Time is tight for the good ol’ boys in SKINLESS but when the stars align, you can expect an old school night of extreme brutality. Very much looking forward to it; see ya soon.”

SKINLESS:

9/25/2015 Les Foufounes Electriques – Montreal, QC

9/26/2015 Upstate Concert Hall – Clifton Park, NY

11/20/2015 Brighton Music Hall – Boston, MA

11/21/2015 Saint Vitus – Brooklyn, NY

11/22/2015 TBA – Philadelphia, PA

12/05/2015 Denver Black Sky – Denver, CO w/ Pig Destroyer

SKINLESS - Classic Logo - large

SKINLESS will be performing in support of their long-anticipated and critically lauded Only The Ruthless Remain full-length, released via Relapse Records last month. Bedecked in the sadistic grooves and flawless musicianship for which the band has become notorious, Only The Ruthless Remain features SKINLESS‘ now-classic, late ’90s lineup of founding guitarist Noah Carpenter, vocalist Sherwood Webber, bassist Joe Keyser and drummer Bob Beaulac, with the addition of second guitarist, Dave Matthews and marks the band’s first proper full-length offering in nearly a decade.

In related SKINLESS bulletins, the band is currently offering a free download of Satan Is Living. The song rears its menacing head during the credits of their ominous video for namesake track, Skinless. “Satan Is Living” is an original tune by the Sunshine Family Ministry and serves as an unofficial Only The Ruthless Remain bonus track. The Sunshine Family Ministry was a fanatical religious cult from the ’80s that committed mass suicide by skinning themselves alive… (fast forward thirty years to the gruesome “Skinless” video). The song “Satan Is Living” was recovered from an old reel-to reel recorder recovered at the scene. The first fifty orders made at the newly-launched SKINLESS webstore will receive a free download of the track as well as an Only The Ruthless Remain poster. Visit the store at THIS LOCATION.

And if you managed to miss the “Skinless” video, featuring a visual smorgasbord of lethal injections, human flaying and general group-inflicted suffering, it’s playing at THIS LOCATION.

Skinless - Only The Ruthless Remain - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #MO7733

Only The Ruthless Remain was tracked by Tom Case at Edie Road Studio and Doomsday Bunker Studio, both in upstate New York, with vocals tracked by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Primitive Man etc.) at Flatline Audio in Denver, Colorado, with the entire slab of audio violence mastered by Brad Boatright (Obituary, Nails, Integrity etc.) at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon.

Only The Ruthless Remain is currently available on CD, LP and digitally via Relapse Records. Limited Relapse 25 Year Anniversary editions of the CD and LP are also be available. For order bundles, visit THIS LOCATION. Desirers of the digitals, go HERE.

“…one of the finest albums in SKINLESS’ repertoire…This isn’t just an album SKINLESS fans will lovingly embrace, but a creation that stands as one of the top offerings of 2015 within the death metal genre” – Apoch’s Metal Review

“…just so fucking heavy.” – Heathen Harvest

“It is everything death metal originally set out to do, and it manages to incorporate a few elements to make it modern. No matter you’re familiarity with the genre, if there’s one death metal album you buy this year, consider Only The Ruthless Remain.” – Yell Magazine 

“Though heavy and full of gore, this album oozes sorrow and anguish. A theme becoming more and more common in extreme metal and it’s a refreshing change of pace. The vocals hurt. The melodic solos weep. It sounds as if the drums are the one thing keeping a man alive…” — Glacially Musical

NIGHTFELL – Brooding Portland Metal Outfit Prepares Second LP “Darkness Evermore” For Release Via 20 Buck Spin

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music with tags , , , on July 9, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Nightfell - promo band pic - 2015 - #0708MONLLSF11

20 Buck Spin proudly welcomes Portland’s brooding and diverse metal outfit, NIGHTFELL, to the label’s ranks, and is preparing to release the band’s crushing Darkness Evermore sophomore LP later this year.

Comprised of main members Todd Burdette (Tragedy, His Hero Is Gone, Warcry, etc) and Tim Call (Aldebaran, Mournful Congregation, Sempiternal Dusk, Saturnalia Temple, etc), in 2014, Portland’s NIGHTFELL stormed decisively onto the worldwide metal scene with their forceful debut album The Living Ever Mourn, which was released through a cooperation between Southern Lord and Parasitic Records. Now, having further fortified their ominous fusion of shadowed disharmony, the band now marches forward with Darkness Evermore, a commanding display of power, tension and dynamics.

Once more defying easy classification, Darkness Evermore seethes with NIGHTFELL‘s fiery, apocalyptic energy from the opening moments of “At Last” until the final “Collapse” and through the cycle of “The Cleansing” and “Rebirth” in between. Ranging from short respites to more than ten minute epic pieces, the album’s blackened guitar harmonies and bleak melodies provide a somber counterpoint to the massive, imposing riffs strewn about the record like bodies on a war-torn field. Unsurprisingly considering the primary members’ other musical outlets, the immense ferocity of the vocals exact a heavy toll and agonizing dread.

As on the debut LP great care has been taken on the production and mastering side of Darkness Evermore to ensure a brutally heavy mix with a punishing low-end that maintains clarity throughout. As with their debut, the new album was recorded and mixed at Red Lantern Studios by Evan “Maus” Mersky and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Yob, Integrity, From Ashes Rise), both in Portland, and bears cover art paintings created by Carl Auge (His Hero Is Gone).

Darkness Evermore will see release via 20 Buck Spin on CD and digital on September 11th, followed by a 12″ vinyl release in early November. The album’s art, track listing, samples of its brutalizing audio and more will be released in the immediate, bleak days ahead.

Poised to make the shift from studio project to live band in the coming months, NIGHTFELL‘s second LP signals a new birth for a band only beginning to make its indelible mark.

Frankfurt’s THE GREEN RIVER BURIAL will release Blight on Vinyl 7-inch and digital formats August 1 on Bastardized Recordings.

The EP is the first chapter of a developing concept project that will be continued on the group’s upcoming full-length release.

THE GREEN RIVER BURIAL sound mirrors and translates the ambition, passions and influences of the four members resulting in a unique, individualistic style. Growing from hardcore roots, the new EP demonstrates a shift toward more of a groove-oriented, modern metal style.

NEW SONG, “YOU GOT SPIRIT, KID”, STREAMING NOW

BAND’S FIRST NON-CONCEPTUAL ALBUM
ARRIVES VIA 300 ENTERTAINMENT

__________________________

NEW YORK, July 7th, 2015 – Coheed and Cambria release their new album, The Color Before The Sun, on Oct. 9th via 300 Entertainment. The band is giving fans an early listen, streaming the song and lyrics for “You Got Spirit, Kid” via Coheedandcambria.com, with the digital download of the single available globally on July 10th.

The Color Before The Sun is the outfit’s eighth studio album and their first non-conceptual release, with the previous offerings forming the larger story of The Amory Wars, a science fiction saga depicting the story of Coheed and Cambria Kilgannon. The Color Before The Sun was recorded at St. Charles Studio in Nashville, and produced by Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Eric Church).

The Color Before The Sun marks the first time Claudio Sanchez is exposing his raw feelings, narrated from his own perspective. “I kind of want people to know that Coheed can write that sort of record,” he explained of the album’s departure from The Amory Wars. “I’ve always said in the past that there’s never been a limitation on the band. It makes no sense to me to draw a line in the sand and never cross it.”

The New York-based band’s album arrives via the recently formed label, 300 Entertainment who pride themselves on being an independent, creative driven record label that focuses on intense artist development.

300 Entertainment co-founder Lyor Cohen offers, “Coheed and Cambria have created a lane and legacy for themselves that is very much their own. Their DIY approach fits the ethos of 300. They’ve taken some brave artistic steps on this forthcoming new album and we are looking forward to sharing it with the world.”

Funny or Die recently shared an unexpected, new song from the band, with the quartet putting Supreme Court Justice Scalia’s dissenting opinions from the Affordable Care Act and Same-Sex Marriage rulings to music, which can be seen in this clip: http://bit.ly/1eNN7Fs. The video, which has been viewed over 250,000 times, was not only picked up by music and comedy outlets but led a chorus of tweets and re-tweets from politicos including Michael Moore, Paul Begala and Chris Hayes.

Coheed and Cambria return to the road in August with several festival appearances including headlining spots at Riot Fest and Fun Fun Fun Fest as well as a trio of special European performances of In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3.

Coheed and Cambria on tour:

August 8 Nashville, TN Ink-N-Iron Festival
August 9 Atlanta, GA Wrecking Ball Atlanta
August 14 Kent, England Hevy Fest 2015
August 15 Amsterdam, Netherlands Neverender IKSSE:3
August 16 Holte-Stkenbrock, Geramyn Serengeti Festival
August 18 Frankfurt, Germany Neverender IKSSE:3
August 19 Cologne, Germany Neverender IKSSE:3

August 21 Hasselt, Belgium Pukkelpop
August 28-30 Denver, CO Riot Fest

September 13 Sterling Heights, MI Chill on the Hill
September 19-20 Toronto, ON Riot Fest
October 25 Sacramento, CA Aftershock Festival
October 31 Phoenix, AZ Monster Mash Music Festival
November 6-8 Austin, TX Fun Fun Fun Fest

Coheed and Cambria is Claudio Sanchez (vocals/guitar), Travis Stever (guitar), Josh Eppard (drums) and Zach Cooper (bass).

About 300 Entertainment
Last year, former Def Jam and Warner Music Group recorded music chief Lyor Cohen along with colleagues Todd Moscowitz (ex-Warner Bros president) and Kevin Liles (ex-EVP Warner Music) unveiled 300 Entertainment, a new record label focused on artist development, flexible deal structures, and technology-based partnerships. 300 Entertainment is a platform not only for artists, but also entrepreneurs by giving them access to tools and knowledge to remain independent and to be active participants in their artists’ development.
