Philip H. Anselmo’s Housecore Horror Festival Returning For Year Three

Housecore Horror Festival - November 2015 - promo flyer - #111315MOPHA

Legendary metal frontman and Housecore Records founder, Philip H. Anselmo, is bringing his horror-themed film and metal festival back for a third year. After a great ride in Austin, the festival will kick off in San Antonio, Texas at the Aztec Theater on November 13th – 15th, 2015.

The decision to return was driven by the desire to honor his friend and festival co-founder, Corey Mitchell, who tragically passed away last October. Mitchell was the driving creative force behind the festival’s success and Anselmo believes there is no better way to pay tribute to his friend than to carry on for a third year.

“I’ve got a great team in place to help make this what Corey and I wanted it to be,” he says. “There are a lot of mixed emotions here because no one can replace him. But, we know he would want this to continue and so that’s what we’re going to do. We miss him and think about him every day.”

Bands already confirmed to play are Suffocation, AutopsyCripple Bastards, Nails, SYk & Dalila KayrosYOBEyehategod, Child BiteWarbeast and many more to be announced soon. Maryland Deathfest co-founder Ryan Taylor will be booking bands this year and will help Anselmo craft a musical lineup that would make Mitchell proud.

In addition to showcasing the best in extreme metal, the festival will screen film gems from the personal vaults of both Anselmo and Mitchell. Horror filmmakers are encouraged to submit their films and winners will be selected in various categories and given the coveted Rot-Scar Award. “When Corey and I started this thing, it was important to us that we help independent filmmakers get their incredible work discovered,” Anselmo continues. “Nothing has changed, in that respect.”

Tickets to go on sale soon! Stay tuned for additional announcements.

Deathless debuted on the Billboard Charts beating their previous album by more than 30 spots to land at #124 on the Top 200 Chart. Deathless also debuted at #10 on the Billboard Hard Music Albums Chart (Current), #114 on the Billboard Top Current Albums Chart and #1 on the Billboard New Artist Chart. This is REVOCATION‘s second straight debut on the Top 200 Chart.

During the recording process, the band shot a series of videos documenting their work. All three episodes, along with the music video for the title track, can be seen now at metalblade.com/revocation.

SIGH – Legendary Japanese Avant Extreme Metal Quintet To Release Tenth Studio Album Via Candlelight Next Month

Posted in Extreme Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music with tags , , , , on April 20, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Sigh - Graveward - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #9909SMO

Japanese extreme metal/noise icons, SIGH, will unveil their crushing tenth studio opus next month. Titled Graveward, the eclectic, ten-track offering took over two-and-a-half years to complete with each song comprising over one-hundred recording tracks exceeding 100GB of audio to select from in the final mixes. Inspired by musician/composer Fabio Frizzi, Graveward pays homage to Italian zombie and Hammer Horror classics.

Graveward features guest performances from Trivium’s Matthew Heafy, DragonForce’s Fred Leclercq, Shining’s Niklas Kvarforth, Rotting Christ’s Sakis Tolis, The Meads Of Asphodel’s Metatron and others with fittingly twisted, grave-robbing cover art by Costin Chioreanu (Ihsahn, At the Gates, Deicide, Ulver, etc.).

In an early impression of the record, A Metal State Of Mind notes, “With a focus of a theme, more touches of thrash, and guest spots from more ‘mainstream’ metal artists from bands like Trivium and DragonForce, I would have to say Graveward is the most accessible SIGH record. A great starting point to delve into the madness with if you haven’t yet. Best thing, with this accessibility, none of the experimentation that makes SIGH great has been sacrificed.”

Already devouring the hordes in Europe, Graveward will be released in North America via Candlelight Records on May 4th, 2015.

Graveward – Track Listing:

1. Kaedit Nos Pestis
2. Graveward
3. The Tombfiller
4. The Forlorn
5. The Molesters Of My Soul
6. Out Of the Grave
7. The Trial By The Dead
8. The Casketburner
9. A Messenger From Tomorrow
10. Dwellers In Dream

For over two decades, SIGH has been transcending the confines of extreme metal. Forged in 1989 in Tokyo, Japan, the band was initially signed by Euronymous’ infamous Deathlike Silence Records on which they released their debut full-length, Scorn Defeat, in 1993. SIGH would go on to release records via various imprints including Cacophonous, Century Media, Baphomet and The End before making Candlelight Records their label home with the release of 2012’s crushing, critically-adored In Somniphobia and this year’s Graveward.

Preorder Graveward via Candlelight Records at THIS LOCATION.  

SIGH:

Mirai Kawashima – vocals, keyboards, orchestrations etc.

Dr. Mikannibal – alto, tenor, baritone saxophones, vocals

Satoshi Fujinami – bass, drums

You Oshima – guitar

Junichi Harashima – drums

GEHTIKA – Announce New Album And Launch Kickstarter Campaign!

Posted in Extreme Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music with tags , , , , on March 18, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Gehtika are sitting on a time bomb! After spending the past eight months writing a follow-up to 2013’s Impossible Question, the band are now and have been for the past week, holed up at Loud Noises Productions in JJM Studios, Walsall, recording a brand new album. This new record follows a concept the band has initially explored on recent single ‘Stack The Pyres’.

Listen to ‘Stack The Pyres’ Here!

The extreme metal outfit from England’s Midlands have also launched a Kickstarter campaign to help bring their latest artistic madness to fruition. Vocalist Anthony Knight comments, “We have worked tirelessly over the past seven to eight months writing, rehearsing and perfecting this absolute behemoth of an album; making sure every aspect of every song is as epic as can be.”

“We wanted to create something unique, something with tons of big riffs, sweeping solos, fierce vocals and enough blast beats to make your ears bleed! And so, from the deepest darkest reaches of our twisted little minds, our heaviest, most accomplished, release to date; A Monster in Mourning was born! A collection of dark, brooding and brutal compositions, which travel through a larger-than-life fantasy saga of betrayal, vengeance, redemption and countless revelations…”

“We’re extremely proud of what we have created; this album is an absolute BEAST, and we can’t wait to share it with all of you!”

The band’s Kickstarter campaign aims to help fund the actual release of the album and will also offer fans some limited edition merchandise and rewards, such as album pre-orders, handwritten framed lyric sheets, album art prints, shirts and other merchandise, VIP tickets to shows and much more. Check out the Kickstarter video which explains album plans and the campaign in more detail.

Gehtika have been kicking asses and assaulting the senses with their punishing brand of extreme metal and entertaining live performances for the past four years. After the release of their debut EP in 2013, the band went on to play the New Blood Stage at the UK’s Bloodstock Open Air Festival after winning their local Metal to the Masses competition. Impressed by their theatrical yet chaotic live show, Gehtika were asked back to Bloodstock Open Air Festival 2014 for the prestigious task of opening up the Sophie Lancaster Stage.

A Monster in the Mourning is due for release later this year.

The Kennedy Veil’s Gabe Seeber Releases First of Several Drum Playthrough Videos

Posted in Drums, Metal, Music, rock music with tags , , , , , on February 16, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Black Seeber - Gabe Seeber - logo - green on black - #2015MO

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.
