Dubai-Based Death/Thrash assault, and recent Unique Leader signees, NERVECELL, will reissue their critically lauded Psychogenocide full-length next year.

Initially released via Lifeforce Records in 2011, Psychogenocide was produced and engineered by Rami H. Mustafa at Spellbind Studio in Dubai, United Arab Emirates with drums engineered by Joe Haley at Red Planet Studios in Australia, then mixed and mastered by Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawscy at Hertz Studios (Behemoth, Vader, Decapitated) in Bialystok, Poland. The album features a guest vocal appearance by Nile’s Karl Sanders on the song “Shunq (To The Despaired…King Of Darkness)” and reaped mass approval from major media outlets globally.

Metal Hammer championed the band’s, “…thrilling contrast between oriental and musical culture,” furthering that, “these elements don’t collide, they complement each other,” Legacy extolled, “an amazing oriental death-ax and a must have for every Metal hornet,” while The Metal Observer gushed, “it’s quite the quandary to find an even remotely average track on Psychogenocide. NERVECELL‘s latest is a Death Metal album that succeeds in part to its strong focus on memorability and song structure. Things work exceedingly well from start-to-finish…”

Adds the band in a collective statement:Psychogenocide is an album about manipulation and the deception of the human race for an agenda of a higher purpose. A modern approach to the old-school Death/Thrash metal sound, that is both technical yet melodic and full of the NERVECELL signature Middle Eastern twist.”

Psychogenocide – Track Listing:

  1. Anemic Assurgency
  2. Upon An Epidemic Scheme
  3. All Eyes On Them
  4. Amok Doctrine
  5. Psychogenocide
  6. Imprint
  7. Shunq (To The Despaired…King Of Darkness)
  8. The Taste of Betrayal
  9. Driven By Nescience
  10. Nation’s Plague

Forged in 2000 as one of the first Extreme Metal bands to emerge from Dubai and having toured alongside legendary Metal acts such as Metallica, Morbid Angel, Deicide, Decapitated and Suffocation, NERVECELL are true torchbearers for a Middle Eastern wave of Metal. The band released their debut full-length, Preaching Venom, in 2009 via Germany’s Lifeforce Records (Europe) and Spellbind Records (Middle East) followed by their critically-adored Psychogenocide long player just two years later. Their unique blend of Middle Eastern Death/Thrash and a reputation for debilitating action-packed live performances helped pave their way to playing some of Europe’s most renowned festivals including Wacken Open Air, With Full Force, Rock AM Ring, Rock IM Park, Summer Breeze and Brutal Assault.

The widespread success of Psychogenocide also awarded NERVECELL the honor of being crowned the “All Time Best Selling Metal Act” in the Middle East and North Africa region, consequently receiving a plaque of recognition from Virgin Megastores (MENA) in January of 2012 certifying this huge accomplishment. Psychogenocide was also lauded as one of the “Top 10 Death Metal Albums Of 2011″ by media outlets globally including Metal Hammer Magazine who named NERVECELL one of the “Defenders Of The Faith,” listing the band as one of the “50 Heroes Of The New Metal Revolution.”

Psychogenocide will be reissued on January 27th, 2015 via Unique Leader Records with preorders to be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime check out various studio clips as well as live footage from the band’s pummeling performance at Kaltenbach Open Air at THIS LOCATION.

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.”

PHANTOM 13 “Out For Blood” – An Album Of Horror Punk/Shock Rock Whoop-Ass!

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

PHANTOM 13 are from Columbus, Ohio and play Horror Punk and Shock Rock that transcends the definition of an unsigned band from the underground. Instead, Phantom 13 is a band that not only plays a sensational live set of songs, they also have nailed it with their new record of Out For Blood. Phantom 13 flavors their songs with Horror lyrics, a Horror Punk/Shock Rock energy and attitude, while seasoned with a touch of Metal.

With the newest album from Phantom 13 comes a most fantastical listen into the spooky side of Rock ‘N Roll. I’ve found Out For Blood to be a euphoric 9 song, non-stop Horror Punk and Shock Rock ride! In other words, Phantom 13 makes me feel great with their Horror Punk whoop-ass and that’s what matters most.

Crank up the title track Out For Blood, below! Whoa!!

I cannot say it enough, hot damn, are all 9 songs a kick-ass sonic experience on Out For Blood! The album opener and title track sets the eerie mood and up-tempo pace of what’s to come; whether the macabre mood is subtle or obvious, Phantom 13 knows how to musically and lyrically ignite the creepy that lurks in the dark. This is an album that post-Michael Graves era Misfits fans should be clamoring for, with Sutter Cain’s eloquent and very ominous vocals. Regardless, any cold-blooded Misfits fan of any era should dig the Horror Punk grooves that Out For Blood is chock-full of.

Truth be told, I’ve found this new album from Phantom 13 to be just as good (if not better) than anything Wednesday 13 has put out. I’m very serious about that. I’ll even state that Out For Blood has an impressive notch (or two) more hefty kick in its songs than the Misfits last studio album The Devil’s Rain. Bassist Chuck Black makes certain the Horror stomp and roll tramples all in its path, throughout Out For Blood. Excellent songs all. My favorites are: Voices Of The Dead, the title track, Death Comes Calling and Demon Girl. I can state with clear certainty, that Out For Blood has become an all-time favorite album for me and will appear on the Metal Odyssey Best Of list for 2014. Metal be thy name – Stone.
