Bloodstone & Diamonds was once again produced by Robb Flynn himself and Juan Urteaga (TESTAMENT, VILE), and like the last 7 out of 8 albums, was masterfully mixed by Colin Richardson (CARCASS, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, SLIPKNOT, BEHEMOTH). Additional tracking, editing, and mixing was done with heavy metal legend Andy Sneap (EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY, MEGADETH) who also launched his career co-mixing Machine Head’s 2nd album “The More Things Change” and Steve Lagudi.

“I cannot even begin to tell you how proud we are of this album,” comments frontman Robb Flynn. “It’s been a heck of a ride, but man, this album is a milestone for us. You’re going to love it Head Cases.”

“Without getting too philosophical on ya, Bloodstone & Diamonds represent two of the hardest materials on earth, it is also a lyric from the opening track of the album ‘Now We Die’. In many cultures the bloodstone has been used as an amulet to protect against evil and is the symbol of justice. Diamonds are the hardest natural material on earth (which is how we feel about our music) and it also represents the diamond logo I drew 22 years ago (in my wife’s apartment on Dover St. in Oakland) that has become the symbol for the band.”

PRIMORDIAL – To Release New Full-Length This November Via Metal Blade Records; Lyric Video Now Playing + Preorder Packages Available

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on September 30, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Primordial - Where Greater Men Have Fallen - promo cover pic

Dublin’s finest Metal exports, PRIMORDIAL, will release their long-anticipated new studio album, Where Greater Men Have Fallen, later this Fall via Metal Blade Records.

Commended by Pitchfork for their meticulously composed “folk and black metal-inflected classic metal that spirals and extends and somehow, keeps getting bigger,” and crowned the, “most vital heavy metal band on the planet,” by Last Rites, Where Greater Men Have Fallen serves as the followup to PRIMORDIAL‘s critically adored, 2011-released Redemption At The Puritan’s Hand full-length and boasts some of the band’s deepest, most meticulously composed compositions to date. The eight-track, fifty-eight minute epic was tracked at Grouse Lodge in Dublin with Jaime Gomez (Cathedral, Angelwitch, Grave Miasma).

Singer A.A. Nemtheanga elaborates: “Some time at the end of 2013 we sat and began to plot a course for album number eight. We moved camp to a new rehearsal room and the ideas began to take shape. We felt it was time to try a new studio and engineer, so we went to Grouse Lodge deep in the middle of Ireland and employed Gomez to come over and work on the new album.” The band’s idea was, of course, to keep the PRIMORDIAL trademarks intact while incorporating a broader, heavier more organic sound. “We feel revitalized, the hunger never left and we are ready for another chapter to be written in our history!

Sample the dark, victorious cadence of title track “Where Greater Men Have Fallen,” with the official new lyric video now playing at THIS LOCATION.

Where Greater Men Have Fallen Track Listing:

  1. Where Greater Men Have Fallen
  2. Babel’s Tower
  3. Come The Flood
  4. The Seed Of Tyrants
  5. Ghosts Of The Charnel House
  6. The Alchemist’s Head
  7. Born To Night
  8. Wield Lightning To Split The Sun

Where Greater Men Have Fallen will be released in North America on November 25th, 2014 via Metal Blade Records. Point your browser to http://www.metalblade.com/primordial for a host of preorder options.

The record will come available as a standard jewel case CD and on vinyl in various color variants. Where Greater Men Have Fallen will also be released as a limited European deluxe edition wood box set which includes a CD+DVD digibook, an exclusive 7″, a leather wristband, a poster and a certificate of authenticity.

PRIMORDIAL:

A.A. Nemtheanga – Vocals

Ciaran MacUiliam – Guitar

Michael O’Floinn – Guitar

Paul MacAmlaigh – Bass

Simon O’Laoghaire – Drums

CANNIBAL CORPSE – Legendary Death Metal Unit Unleashes “The Murderer’s Pact” Via Loudwire

Posted in Death Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 8, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Cannibal Corpse - The Murderer's Pact - Loudwire - promo band flyer

Band Prepares To Drop Thirteenth Full-Length

_________________________________

Following its premiere this past weekend on Full Metal Jackie’s syndicated radio show, today long-running death metal behemoths, CANNIBAL CORPSE, deliver “The Murderer’s Pact” via empire sound portal, Loudwire.

“The Murderer’s Pact” serves as the sixth cut of sonic punishment from CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s forthcoming A Skeletal Domain full-length, set for official detonation via Metal Blade Records on September 16th, 2014.

Comments Loudwire: “The band has been spewing out death metal for over twenty-five years, and A Skeletal Domain, much like CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s first twelve albums, takes no prisoners. Clocking in at over five minutes, ‘The Murderer’s Pact’ showcases some awesome musicianship from the band’s instrumental sections along with an interesting song structure. For fans of George ‘Corpsegrinder’ Fisher, you’re in for a treat, as well. The vocalist also delivers with his trademark grunt, showing no signs of vocal rust whatsoever.”

Get brutal with “The Murderer’s Pact,” now playing at THIS LOCATION.

A Skeletal Domain marks CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s astounding thirteenth full-length. Produced by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver) at Audio Hammer Studios, the record heaves forth twelve ill-omened tracks in forty-four skin-searing minutes, the result of which is a colossal, confrontational, and meticulously executed aural attack that finds the band at the peak of their notoriously hyper-kinetic viciousness. In an 8/10 rating of A Skeletal Domain, Decibel elaborates, “‘Vector Of Cruelty’ is a masterful combination of coruscating mid-pace burl and quirky thrash, ‘The Murderer’s Pact’ pushes boundaries in the fields of lead work and atonality, while ‘Kill Or Become’ has a sizzling, infectious quality and the potential to be a set closer should they ever quit it with ‘Hammer Smashed Face.’… the point is, there’s material on lucky number thirteen that stands up to the classics.”

Cannibal Corpse - A Skeletal Domain - promo cover pic

Adds Sputnik Music in a near perfect 4/5 score, “CANNIBAL CORPSE have pushed the technicality of their songs without forgetting the brutality or speed that fans have come to expect. They have also added a thrash element that periodically rears its head before being murdered by another blast beat and atonal guitar solo. Together all of these elements have created a CANNIBAL CORPSE album that is darker and more chaotic than normal, but that is somehow probably their most accessible. …with A Skeletal Domain there is even more of a reason for people to give CANNIBAL CORPSE a listen.”

In related CANNIBAL CORPSE happenings, the band will unleash their first-ever official authorized biography. Written by Joel McIver, author of Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica and biographies on Black Sabbath, Slayer, Slipknot, and Queens Of The Stone Age,Bible Of Butchery – Cannibal Corpse: The Official Biography will contain over 150 pages loaded with photos from the band’s collection, available everywhere later this month.

A Skeletal Domain will be released in North America on September 16th, 2014 via Metal Blade Records. Point your browser to metalblade.com/cannibalcorpse where you’ll witness the audio menace of second track, “Sadistic Embodiment” as well as a host of preorder bundles.

Indiana Stoner/Sludge Rockers YELLOWTOOTH Entering Studio To Record Sophomore Album

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on August 29, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Yellowtooth - promo band pic - 2014 - #3387

Michigan City, Indiana’s own Sludge/Stoner band YELLOWTOOTH is preparing to hit the studio in September to record Crushed By The Wheels of Progress, the follow-up to the band’s 2012 debut album Disgust.

The album will be released through Orchestrated Misery Recordings. The band has eight songs ready to be sent into the audio stratosphere. Song titles include “Before I Return to Dust,” “The Spiral Stairs,” “Meet Mr. Mossberg,” “Climbing the Mountain,” “Manifesto,” and “Season’s End.”

Guitarist/vocalist Henry McGinnis commented on the new material:

“We haven’t really changed our writing style since the debut came out, but refined it a bit to suit our needs. Having been together since 2008 it’s just a natural progression of who we are.  The songs are still very heavy, and some parts still have the southern flair we have grown to enjoy since the beginning.”

YELLOWTOOTH is also gearing up for several shows this fall in the Chicagoland area with label-mates PSYCHOMANCER.

“‘Southern-fried stoner-sludge-doom?’ Fuck it. It’s heavy. It’s bad-ass. And it’s perfect when you’re chasin’ Beam with Busch Light.” – Heavy Planet
