There are many, many artists in music today, from Pop to Metal that would not be who they are or where they are without YouTube. The possibilities are endless when the right song or video begins to make the rounds and ends up achieving ‘viral’ status that was typically never expected or intended. And while that type of infectious sharing is never the case with Extreme Metal, bands and artists consistently creating content can still manage to reach a much larger audience through YouTube’s massive (google enhanced) reach and suggestive sidebar links.

Knowing all of that, The Kennedy Veil‘s own Gabe Seeber has decided to get more involved in creating content for fans to watch and share around. The first of several upcoming Drum Playthroughs to be released, is ‘Mental Crucifixion,’ a track by melodic tech death band Vale of Pnath, from the 2011 album, Prodigal Empire. You can check out the playthrough video at this location or below:

Also be sure to subscribe and stay tuned to Gabe’YouTube Channel to be the first to see all of the upcoming drum playthrough videos he has planned for 2015.

2014 was a banner year for Gabe, with The Kennedy Veil releasing their debut album, ‘Trinity of Falsehood‘ on January 21, 2014 via Unique Leader Records, and immediately hitting the road in support of the album alongside labelmates Lord of War and ArkaikGabe was also a member of Sacramento tech death outfit and Unique Leader labelmates, AlterbeastGabe re-recorded the drums for what would become that band’s UL debut album, ‘Immortal,’ which saw a release in March of 2014.

In late Spring of 2014, Gabe confirmed that he would once again be the touring drummer for Decrepit Birth for their Summer Slaughter Tour run, alongside death metal legends Morbid AngelDying Fetus and more. About a month after returning home from Summer SlaughterGabe hit the road with Alterbeast, alongside Chelsea Grin and headliners Suicide Silence and The Black Dahlia Murder for a month-long tour across North America, which included being a part of the VIP Kick Off Party for Knotfest in San Bernardino, CA. In late 2014, Gabe officially parted ways with Alterbeast in order to focus more on The Kennedy Veil.

CTULU’s “Sarkomand” LP Now Available For Orders

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on January 15, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

CTULU - promo band pic - #2015C15

The first ever vinyl and reissue of the critically acclaimed sophomore album, Sarkomand, from Lovecraftian black metallers Ctulu is out now and available for orders via the band’s webshop. The 12” black LP was released on December 5th, 2014 via Black Blood Records and Human To Dust, in order to celebrate the band’s tenth anniversary. The CD version (2011, God Eater Records) was sold out and was received very warmly by the band’s fans and critics worldwide.

According to Rolling Stone India “Sarkomand featured Ctulu at their best, with a bruising, brutal mix of black and death metal” and Metal As Fuck states that the album “is a fine example of contemporary extreme metal“.

Ctulu was formed in 2004 by Mathias Junge and ex-member Stefan Schulz. The band has gone through various line-up changes over the years and the Sarkomand line-up features ex-members Jan Westermann (Diablery, Released Anger) on drums, Rolf Quast-Janßen (Lunar Eclipse) on vocal duties, along with Arne Uekert and Mathias Junge on guitars.

Despite its line-up changes, Ctulu has never given up and has put their original Seastorming Extreme Metal on the map of Heavy Metal. With their experience of live performances – including a tour with Taake, Ragnarök Festival (DE), Infernal Damnation (UK) and various shows outside their homeland, the band is stronger than ever.

Having a powerful member line-up featuring Junge and Uekert both on guitar and vocal duties, Roman Szymura (AEBA) on drums and Lasse Bodenstein on bass, the Germans are now working on their fourth full-length which will see a return to the catchy, straightforward – but not lacking in atmosphere – black metal which is found on Sarkomand.

Upcoming shows:

02. 20 – Frostfeuernächte – KiEZ Hölzerner See, Germany
03. 13 – Magazinkeller, Bremen, Germany (Freie Geister Festival co-organised by the band)
06. 19-21 – Gardelegen, Germany (Metal Frenzy Open Air)
08. 14 – Moscow, Russia
08. 15 – Tula, Russia (Blackened Life Festival)

Castle Freak - Still Rotting - Cassette Artwork promo pic - 2014

4 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall4

CASTLE FREAK – What do you get when you mix Death Metal, Punk, Thrash, Horror Metal and Extreme together? The end Metal result is an underground band known as: CASTLE FREAK. From parts unknown and signed to Tridroid Records, CASTLE FREAK plays some damn good, fast and very heavy stuff at that. Yes, CASTLE FREAK are quite good at this Metal thing they’re into. Even the album, um, cassette artwork is freaking underground!

With vocals that resonate the angst of Punk and pissed-off aura of Extreme Metal, I have found myself very pleased with every listen, indeed. Underground Metal should kick severe ass and this Still Rotting album has kicked my ass. All five songs on Still Rotting are decent beyond hell and serve as a Metal treat for those of us that still believe in the blue-collar Metal alleyways and hidden Metal fields of dreams. Metal be thy name – Stone.

Crank Up and BUY Some CASTLE FREAK, Below! Whoa!

THE CRINN – Return With A New Track, Reveal Artwork For Forthcoming Album ‘Shadowbreather’

Posted in Extreme Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on October 21, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Minnesota’s Extreme Metal experimentalists, THE CRINN, have returned with a face melting new track entitled Silent Betrayer!! Little has been heard from the band since the release of their debut full length album, Dreaming Saturn, via Nuclear Blast Records back in 2010. Aside from a few one-off live performances and few and far between social media updates, THE CRINN have been excessively quiet over the last few years.

All that changes with the release of Silent Betrayer, which is taken from their forthcoming album Shadowbreather. Silent Betrayer is now streaming via THE CRINN‘s Bandcamp page, as well as their Official YouTube Channel. The artwork for Shadowbreather has also been revealed and can be seen (below).

Vocalist John Nelson had the following to say about the upcoming release:It has been a long 4 years since we released our first full length record, Dreaming Saturn, and we are beyond pumped to showcase “Silent Betrayer” from our upcoming album entitled SHADOWBREATHER! The first thing people might notice, contrary to our last release, is that the new album was not formed as a concept. The direction we went with was to write individual songs that are somewhat shorter in length, more in line with our Self-Titled EP. Stylistically we have no rules. We write what comes to us. These songs are a true expression of our experimental nature with a bit of a focus on making our sound meaner and heavier. We really hope you enjoy “Silent Betrayer,” and we will be releasing more news on the album soon!!!

THE CRINN – Silent Betrayer:

Shadowbreather was recorded at Signaturetone Recording with producer/engineer Adam Tucker. A release date has not yet been set.

2014 also marks a decade of existence for THE CRINN, having formed during August of 2004 in St. Paul, MN. From its inception, the band decided to use an explorative writing style, without concern for genre exclusivity due to their frustration with the average and mundane, breakdown oriented metal scene. Their mixture of technical riffs, off-time grooves and jarring transitions has led to the band being labeled as mathcore, techmetal, techgrind, jazzmetal and even noodlegrind. Fans of THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and PSYOPUS owe it to themselves to give THE CRINN a listen!

Foul Body Autopsy - Tom Reynolds - promo pic - 2014 - #668

Grindscene Records today reveals a swell in their roster, having picked up emerging Extreme Metal one man outfit Foul Body Autopsy.

Label manager Pete Clarke comments: “We are thrilled to welcome Foul Body Autopsy onto our roster. FBA formed in 2010 and has been carving its name into the UK for 4 years now. This one-man army will be releasing a new 2 track EP entitled ‘So Close To Dehumanization’ unto the world on November 4th 2014.”

Armed with an iPod, guitar and a desire to crush skulls, Foul Body Autopsy is a one-man band from Leicester City founded by Metal maverick Tom Reynolds. Over the space of 4 years Tom has released a full-length album and is now working with Equivalence Music Management & Grindscene Records, planning for a full Metal tirade in the UK.

Prior to this Tom has played Bloodstock Open Air and has shared the stage with the likes of Prostitute Disfigurement, Flayed Disciple, Cancerous Womb, General Surgery, Aeon, Cerebral Bore, Panic Cell, Cannabis Corpse, Decapitated, Aborted, Basement Torture Killings, Amputated, Ageless Oblivion, Leng Tch’e, Thy Art Is Murder, Scordatura and Carnal Decay.

With pure shred techniques, blistering speed and no lack of humour within his show this is a unique show that should not be missed.

Tom comments on the signing: “I’m very proud to be on Grindscene Records; in fact it was the only UK label I wanted to be on.”
