Kaotoxin records is proud to announce the inking of a multi-album deal with French Deathcore masters DEEP IN HATE.

Born in 2004 and having released two full-lengths before signing to Kaotoxin, Deep In Hate, who features Nicolas Basto (ex-Aborted / L’Esprit du Clan) on drums, evolved from a technical Deathcore outfit to a much more personal brand of melodic and catchy, yet still technical, brand of Deathcore. The band’s focus is on writing catchy tunes and developing an oppressive atmosphere by blending dark melodic hooks with technical leads and wall-crushing breakdowns in a very dark, suffocating and yet utterly efficient way.

Touring with the likes of Black Dahlia Murder, appearances at Sonisphere and other European festivals and an inherent desire to push the boundaries of brutality to unimagined levels have all lead Deep In Hate down an evolutionary path that plateaus this June with their Kaotoxin Records debut, Chronicles of Oblivion.

With a massive production and artwork by Above Chaos (Hellfest, Bethlehem, Nightfall), Chronicles of Oblivion features nine heavy and intense, yet melodic song-oriented tracks. Rooted less in tech-metal than previous efforts, Deep In Hate seek to develop a more hook-laden approach to Deathcore. This shift is demonstrated in the new music video they’ve unleashed in support of Chronicles of Oblivion. Recorded live at Sonisphere 2013, the video for “New Republic” can be seen below:

Chronicles of Oblivion – Track Listing:

Introduction

Genesis of Void

The Cattle Procession

Altars of Lies

New Republic

The Unheard Prayers

The Divide

Wingless Gods*

Beyond

*features guest vocals by Sven de Caluwé (Aborted)

___________________________

With this brilliant new release Deep In Hate morphs influences from bands like Whitechapel, Despised Icon, Aborted, Gojira and Decapitated into a sound that’s all their own. The band aims to conquer new territories and enlarge an already impressive following by touring as much as they can everywhere in support of this massive new album.

Available as a limited edition (1,000 copies at first press) deluxe DigiSleeve CD, Chronicles of Oblivion will be available worldwide on June 3.

Pre-orders for the album and exclusive bundle deals with brand new merch will start on May 6, at the Kaotoxin Web Shopwww.shop.kaotoxin.com.

SKINFATHER “None Will Mourn” – Debut Album From SoCal Metal Band Wreaks Havoc!

Skinfather - None Will Mourn - promo cover pic - 2014 - #100

3.5 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metal Fists - 3.5 - Metal Odyssey

SKINFATHER – The debut album, None Will Mourn, from Southern California’s Skinfather, will be released on April 22nd, via Streetcleaner Records. Fans of Hardcore, Death Metal and/or any Extreme Metal will get a Metal kick out of Skinfather. There’s plenty of vocal rage and cheerlessness to go around, with riff heavy, maniacal and (at times) groove laden, speed driven songs. There’s even a touch of old school Doom with the memorable instrumental Atraxia.

The thick, crunchy and relentless guitars and eruptive rhythm section of Skinfather are a damn cool listening experience, for my Metal hungry brain tissue. Definitely support and give Skinfather a listen; this band comes across as being true to the Metal model of extreme. Metal be thy name. – Stone

None Will Mourn – Track Listing: Ordeal By Fire, Drown In Black, Born Of Despair, Hellish Grave, Atraxia, Dead Still, Calloused, Planes Of Ruination, Impaled

COLDWAR – Ink Deal With Candlelight Records!

Posted in Extreme Metal, hardcore punk, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , on January 30, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Coldwar - promo band pic - B&W - 2014 - #99075

Candlelight Records is proud to announce the signing of Irish hardcore punks Coldwar! Debut Candlelight Records album coming 2014.

Equally thrilled by the signing, Coldwar had this to say about it, “Coldwar are proud to announce that we have signed to Candlelight Records. We are very excited about our future with Candlelight and are honoured to be on a label with such a varied and talented collection of artists.”

This is Coldwar with their latest recording ‘Pantheist’.

Listen to Heart Of Darkness from the upcoming Coldwar album Pantheist:

Pantheism: The belief that everything composes an all-encompassing, immanent God, or that the universe (or nature) is identical with divinity. Pantheists thus do not believe in a personal or anthropomorphic god.

The darkness of the soul, esoteric symbology, natural evil, scrutinization of the irregularity of the Gregorian calendar, the meltdown crisis point at which capitalist society presently finds itself, and the possible final gasp of our current ‘material age’, to pave way for a potential revolutionary shift in values-consciousness for a jaded humanity. These are some of the varied concepts with which Coldwar lyrically engage, in their latest anthology, and forth-coming release ‘Pantheist’.

Formed in 1999 in Dublin, Ireland, Coldwar are influenced by underground hardcore punk and extreme metal. Fuelled by a rejection of Church & State institutions and other oppressive, intolerant and absolutist states of mind.

To date, Coldwar have toured Ireland and the UK as well as having made several trips to Europe and the USA. The band have also played a number of festivals including Wacken Open Air (Germany), Obscene Extreme Festival (Czech Republic), Load As Fuck (USA), Day Of Darkness (Ireland), Up the Punks (UK), Cork Winter Fest (Ireland), Burning Oak Festival (Ireland), Subvert Festival (UK) and more.

Coldwar have shared the stage and toured alongside bands such as Fear Factory, Soulfly, Sepultura, EHG, Suffocation, Anthrax, Hatebreed, Discharge, Napalm Death and many more.

With four releases previous since their inception via Underground Movement each release has gained the band a growing fan base.

LETHAL DOSAGE – Revolver Premieres Opening Track From Tucson Quintet’s New Full-Length

Posted in Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , on January 13, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Lethal Dosage - promo band pic - #2298 - 2014

Consume The Southwest Tour Dates Locked

The opening track to Consume, the second full-length undertaking from Tucson, Arizona-based quintet, LETHAL DOSAGE, has been leaked onto the masses via Revolver Magazine. Bringing forth a nearly four-minute beating fueled by the band’s live-for-today and fuck the rest attitude, “Drink” most aptly displays what Consume is about. From the cacophony of the scathing vocal bellow and immediately pummeling opening moments of the album, listeners know Consume is going to be a punishing excursion.

Get a LETHAL DOSAGE of hate-bred audio aggression with “Drink” at Revolver’s website RIGHT HERE.

On February 25th, LETHAL DOSAGE will release Consume via Battleground Records, the new label founded by Tucson’s own Godhunter, also founders of the now annual Southwest Terror Fest gathering. Just in time for its release, the band will embark on their Consume The Southwest Touralongside Las Cruces’Psykryptyca, with five shows in New Mexico and Arizona between February 18th and 22nd. More extensive tour actions, including an US Summer tour, are in the planning stages as well.

LETHAL DOSAGE Consume The Southwest Tour w/ Psykryptyca:

2/18/2014 Metal Junkies - Las Cruces, NM

2/19/2014 The Jam Spot - Albuquerque, NM

2/20/2014 The Hive - Flagstaff, AZ

2/21/2014 Tempe Tavern - Phoenix, AZ

2/22/2014 The Rock - Tucson, AZ

LETHAL DOSAGE self-released their debut album, Inhale, in mid-2011, followed by regional touring ever since. After their breakthrough performance at the 2013 installment of the Southwest Terror Fest supporting Sacred Reich and Landmine Marathon in their hometown, the head of the fest, and founder of Battleground Records, brought the pummeling act under the new label’s cape, eager to unleash the bestial hammerfuck of their newly recorded Consume full-length. 

LETHAL DOSAGE releases a brutal, modern, death-influenced, groove-laden style akin to Chimaira and Lamb Of God, delivered through a caustic sludge production on Consume. Bearing fifty minutes of carnage, the album was recorded at Arcane Digital Studio, produced and mixed by Ryan Butler and mastered at Sonorous Mastering. Battleground will release Consume thorugh digipak CD and digital delivery.

ARSEBREED – Extreme Death Metal Militia Completes New Album With Necrophagist Drummer Romain Goulon

Arsebreed - promo band pic - #2094 - 2014

Dutch Extreme Death Metal militia, ARSEBREED, recently completed the recording of their forthcoming Unique Leader full-length with current Necrophagist basher Romain Goulon behind the kit.

In an official statement the band elaborates: “In 2006, just after [former drummer] Floris [De Jonge, Mangled] left ARSEBREED, we got in contact with an unknown young French guy. He said he knew us from our other bands, Pyaemia and Disavowed. We all agreed on a try-out. After only one month, he e-mailed saying he had learned our songs. Slightly skeptical — one month is really quick — we bought him his plane ticket and flew him in. Once in the rehearsal room, he nailed it! Flawless, relentless, speed and accuracy! We instantly knew that this unknown young guy from France, Romain Goulon, was the prefect drummer for ARSEBREED. Unfortunately, the best kept secret in death metal was soon discovered by the rest of the world and in 2007 Romain fled ARSEBREED to join Necrophagist. Nevertheless, last year we once again got in contact with Romain. We started talking about these ten songs that we had written over time, just waiting for a drummer… and we were stoked to hear that he was willing to record them! This week we received the recordings. More than seven years later we  got that exact same feeling that we had back in 2006 in that rehearsal room. Insane. Romain proved once again that was and is the one and only drummer for ARSEBREED. He is unsurpassed in creativity, technique, speed, perseverance and grasping the concept of the ARSEBREED songs as no one else. Finally! We waited for more than six years but it was worth the wait! Thanks Romain!”

Formerly known as Bloodcum, ARSEBREED was spawned in 2000 and is dedicated to the execution of brutal, uncompromising, US-styled death metal in the vein of Deeds Of Flesh and Deicide. The follow-up to 2005′s Munch The Rotten will be unleashed later this year via Unique Leader Records. Further info to be announced in the coming weeks. Until then, check out some rehearsal footage at THIS LOCATION.

SKELETONWITCH – “Unfit” For Disney, But Fit For A Wedding; Hometown Record Release Show Announced

Posted in Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on October 8, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

A1024

Fresh off a short run of dates supporting Ghost B.C., Athens, Ohio-based Blackened Metal quintet, SKELETONWITCH, has announced a hometown release party for their forthcoming new full-length,Serpents Unleashed. The show will take place at The Union (18 W. Union St., Athens) on October 23rd, the eve of the kickoff to their extensive North American fall tour with The Black Dahlia Murder. Tickets for the event are just $10.

The Black Dahlia tour will be swiftly followed by another lap around America in early 2014 alongside Amon Amarth and Enslaved. Unfortunately for fans in Orlando however, where the tour stops on January 27th, SKELETONWITCH will not be allowed to perform at the local House of Blues, as the group has joined the likes of Exodus, Machine Head and others deemed “unfit to be associated with” Disney, on whose property the venue is located.

Skeletonwitch - band promo pic - #1 - 2013 - 66

Although SKELETONWITCH might be un-welcomed at the Magic Kingdom, a California couple has asked the band to make their dreams come true. During SKELETONWITCH’s performance in Fresno on November 15th, longtime fans Travis Bartlett and Lanae Forrest will get married on stage — making local venue Strummer’s their own happiest place on Earth. Says groom-to-be Bartlett, “Lanae and I are taken aback and beyond elated that SKELETONWITCH are willing to be a part of the most important day of our lives. There really aren’t words to show our appreciation for the band being with us as we begin our lives together.”

Commemorating the group’s 10-year anniversary, Serpents Unleashed - recorded earlier this year with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Isis, High on Fire), and featuring artwork by John Baizley (Baroness, Kylesa, Kvelertak) - will be unleashed in North America on October 29th, in Australia, Germany, Austria and Switzerland on October 25th and in the UK and the rest of Europe on October 28th. Serpents Unleashed is available for preorder at SKELETONWITCH.com in CD, LP, cassette, digital download and limited edition 7-inch collector’s box formats. In addition, you can now pre-order the album digitally at iTunes and BandCamp and receive an instant download of “I Am Of Death (Hell Has Arrived).”

Free Download Of New Track Available Now; Behind-The-Scenes Studio Footage Posted

Currently celebrating ten years of blackened Metal, SKELETONWITCH are proud to unveil details about their most venomous release yet – Serpents Unleashed. Set for release in North America on October 29 (October 28 EU/UK, October 25 Germany), the highly anticipated follow-up to 2011′s critical-lauded, Billboard-charting Forever Abomination was recorded earlier this year at GodCity Studio with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Trap Them, High on Fire), who expertly channeled the band’s colossal live sound into eleven blasts of abominable, frosty fire. Serpents Unleashed features cover artwork by John Baizley (Baroness, Kylesa, Kvelertak), who returns to the ‘WITCH fold for the first time since 2007′s Beyond The Permafrost.

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. Behind-the-scenes studio footage of the band recording the track at GodCity can be view at:

ULCERATE – An In-Studio Video Documenting “Vermis” Recording Sessions Posted

Posted in Death Metal, Extreme Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on July 21, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Ulcerate - Vermis - promo cover pic

Following the recent unveiling of the details on ULCERATE’s impending and highly anticipated fourth LP VermisRelapse has leaked an in-studio video with the Auckland, New Zealand tribe as they meticulously crafted the mammoth album at hometown MCA Studios earlier this year. The combined demolishing power and technical prowess of the music the trio creates is truly jaw-dropping on every one of the band’s releases to date, and watching them hone and construct these anguished hymns piece-by-piece is enthralling for any extreme music musician or ULCERATE devotee.

View the extensive in-studio video of the making of Vermis now AT THIS LOCATION.

Album-to-album, ULCERATE continually expands their attack by melding mechanical elements with organic flow patterns, and integrating more sonically demoralizing elements into their haunting explosiveness. The band’s forward-thinking death metal style is born where Hate Eternal, Gorguts and Immolation collides into the blackened anguish of Deathspell Omega or Portal — traits which become more apparent than ever on their Relapse debut Vermis.

The nine passages harnessed on their fourth full-length play out into a nearly hour-long document of their most tumultuous craftsmanship yet. Vermis will see release September 17th in North America, preceded by September 13th in Germany and Benelux, and September 16th in the UK and rest of the world. Preorders have been made available here.

Additional propaganda, hymns and more on Vermis will be announced in the coming weeks in addition to new ULCERATE tour actions for 2013.

CATTLE DECAPITATION To Release “Your Disposal” 7″ Single

Band Prepares To Level Stages At Summer Slaughter

___________________________________

CATTLE DECAPITATION will be releasing a 7″ single this summer! Your Disposal features the B-side, An Exposition of Insides, which was previously available only as a Japanese bonus track on the band’s most recent album, Monolith of Inhumanity. The single is available (both black and clear vinyl) for order on-line on indiemerchstore.com for $5.50, as well as in a bundle with a t-shirt for $18.99. Pick up your copy of the single HERE, and check out the t-shirt bundle HERE. Fans attending this year’s The Summer Slaughter Tour can grab their copy at the band’s merch booth throughout the tour.

Vocalist Travis Ryan comments: “We noticed a lot of people were dismayed to find out there was a track available out there on a Japanese version of Monolith of Inhumanity that nobody outside of Japan had ever heard before. When it hit YouTube, that’s when we started getting emails from fans. We noticed the lyrics weren’t inside that version or available anywhere at all so that gave us the idea of throwing it on a B-side and releasing a 7″ vinyl single for “Your Disposal” with the song “An Exposition of Insides!” We feel that Monolith is the mother of all of our releases so far and I thought it’d be funny to make it look like she just squirted out a baby and that’s what this little guy looks like. Just in time for Summer Slaughter!”

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER – Releases “Into The Everblack” Performance Demo Video

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, melodic death metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on July 2, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

The Black Dahlia Murder - Everblack - promo banner - 2013

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER are currently leveling stages as part of this year’s Van’s Warped Tour. At the Ventura, California stop of the trek, Brian Eschbach, Ryan Knight, Max Lavelle, and Alan Cassidy, recorded their parts for Into the Everblack from the band’s new album, Everblack. The performance is streaming now at metalblade.com/bdm. Additionally, videos for each individual performance have been posted at youtube.com/blackdahliamurdertv.

Audio Hammer producer Mark Lewis comments specifically on Knight’s leads on “Everblack” stating, “Ryan Knight’s leads on ‘Everblack’ are nothing short of phenomenal. I grew up listening to the best in the era of shred, and I can honestly say these solos rank up there with the best, and beyond. They are not just technical solos in the athletic, ‘look how fast I can play’ sense; there is truly amazing harmonic content going in these leads. Any educated player will realize that the chord changes he is playing over are far more complex than anything you typically find in metal. Mix all that with absolutely world-class tone and vibrato, and you really have an amazing piece of work. It does not get better than this.”

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER’s new music video for “Goat of Departure” was also recently made available, and be seen on youtube HERE. The video, directed by Ben Mayer, was filmed in the band’s hometown of Detroit last month. In typical TBDM fashion, it is over-the-top and even features the return of a classic TBDM character, and a real, live goat.

WARTORN “Iconic Nightmare” – Brutality Has Knocked… It’s Time To Listen.

Posted in crust/punk, Extreme Metal, extreme music, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on June 16, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Wartorn - Iconic Nightmare - promo cover pic

WARTORN – Rage. Resentment. Darkness falls upon the happy days of small town. The doors have been blown apart at their hinges and a swirling black cloud of hostility is in your face and commanding your Metal senses. This is all part of the cataclysmic eruption of Crust extremity, that awaits you, with this new WARTORN release: Iconic Nightmare.

The Extreme Metal crossover appeal is so enriched with WARTORN’s violent sound that it boggles my Metal mind. Wether it’s Death, Punk, Grind, Hardcore, Crust, Thrash or Black Metal that’s your obsession, the skull crushing totality of relentless and brutal sound that WARTORN administers on Iconic Nightmare is overwhelmingly grand.

____________________________

There’s something to be said about the strength of merciless and Extreme Music. This is the stuff I listen to for strength to look my deceivers in the eyes and laugh at their tormented souls. WARTORN is as unsophisticated as anything you’ll ever hear in your Metal life and that’s a damn inspiring good thing too.

Extreme Music isn’t about plastic bells and red carpet whistles for me. No blatant way. Extreme Music, for me, is about the IMPACT and total disregard for our societal norms and WARTORN have torn the fuck apart any images of  humanity’s status quo in my Metal mind. Metal be thy name.

Wartorn - band promo pic - 2013 - #1

WARTORN: Bitty (Vocals), Ryan (Guitar), Toban (Guitar) Derek (Guitar), Ela (Bass) and Hart (Drums).

PRIOR PRESS RELEASE:

Southern Lord has unleashed hell with the new full-length from Midwestern death squad WARTORN.

Since 2004 this Appleton, Wisconsin-based brigade has protested political tyranny and societal injustices with a devastating brew of metallic crustpunk. WARTORN has assaulted live audiences across thirteen countries across North America and Europe in support of releases on renowned crust/punk labels including Profane Existence and Crimes Against Humanity, while its members also take part in other active and notable acts like Dresden, Remission, and Words That Burn.

Taking their attack to the next level, the energy and production of their newest full-length Iconic Nightmare elevates WARTORN’s powerful songwriting and execution to new levels, surging with nine crushing anthems in barely twenty-five minutes. Diehards of Wolfbrigade, From Ashes Rise, Tragedy and the like should not pass this one by.

CARCASS – Extreme Metal Legends Headlining DAMNATION FESTIVAL 2013

Damnation Festival - 2013 - promo flyer

THE UK’s PREMIERE INDOOR METAL FESTIVAL

______________________________________

As reported by Damnation Festival:

English Extreme Metal legends CARCASS will return to headline the ninth Damnation Festival for their only UK appearance following the release of their first album in 17 years.

The Death and Grind standard bearers have promised another historic set which will feature cult classics alongside unexpected old gems and brand new material when they take the stage at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 2, 2013.

And after helping to sell out Damnation Festival in advance back in 2008, guitarist Bill Steer is looking forward to performing to a packed house on their return to the event.

He said: “We’re very excited about the prospect of returning to Damnation Festival this year.

“Our appearance there in 2008 was a major highlight for us and this time around, people can expect to hear a fairly different Carcass set.

“The old favourites will be in there, of course, but we’re also planning to play a couple of the less obvious tracks from our past, as well as songs from the album we’ve just completed. Join us!”Carcass - Band Promo Pic - 2013 - #1

CARCASS

With 22 more bands to be announced across three stages, festival director Gavin McInally, said fans can look forward to the melting pot of diverse styles of music Damnation Festival is known for from Black Metal to Post-Rock.

He added: “It was a coup to land the first UK Carcass show in 13 years in 2008 when fans snapped up every ticket going before we made it to the day itself and it’s another coup having the band return following the release of their first new album in 17 years.

“But even with the mighty Carcass topping the bill, we won’t be satisfied until we’ve pieced together a more challenging and brilliant day of music than the eight successful years we’ve already had the pleasure of hosting, so expect a lot more to come from 2013.”

Tickets for Damnation Festival 2013 are on sale now and will be held at last year’s price of £32 for a limited period.
