Italian Punk Rockin’ Speed Metallers, OVERCHARGE, have posted a brand new track off their upcoming new album, Accelerate. The song, Nothing on the Way, is now streaming below:

OVERCHARAGE is in fact Punk Rock, Rock ‘n Roll, and Speed Metal rolled up into one.  The Italians sound like a drunken fist fight between MOTORHEAD and Kill ‘em All-era METALLICA, if everyone involved was gargling broken glass and DISCHARAGE was playing on the jukebox. It’s nothing less than adrenaline-fueled, mohawked mayhem!

Featuring a member of label mates OMNIVORE, OVERCHARGE wear their influences on their tattoo sleeves, but don’t sound overly beholden to any one of them.  Like all good Rock ‘n Roll, songs and riffs matter more here than emulating a specific set of heroes. Accelerate will be the first full-length from these maniacs.

Accelerate is set for worldwide release on September 30 via Unspeakable Axe Records.

TOXIC HOLOCAUST – Portland Punk Metal Day-Ruiners Join Black Tusk For A European Takeover

Toxic Holocaust - Black Tusk - European Tour - 2014 - promo flyer

Portland Punk Metal day-ruiners, TOXIC HOLOCAUST, will join forces with Savannah, Georgia sludge warriors/labelmates, Black Tusk, for a European campaign of live destruction this Summer. The mayhem begins in Denmark where the trio will systematically devastate Copenhagen before joining team Black Tusk, along with Hamburg doom-sludge quartet Downfall Of Gaia, to ravage eight cities through Germany, Belgium and France including an appearance at this year’s Hellfest.

Crowned, “…one of thrash’s most exciting modern bands,” by Loudwire, “…the aural equivalent of a cobra with a chest tattoo of a double helix and syringes for fangs getting ready to strike amidst two flesh-like walls of anxious, bloodshot eyes…,” by MetalSucks, ” “a bottled up riot distilled into musical form,” by Metal Injection, ” and, “….hands down one of the coolest crossover albums put to tape,” by Apeshit, Chemistry Of Consciousness continues to dehydrate the masses with a platter that pays tribute to the likes of Anti-Cimex, Warfare, Infernal Majesty, GBH, Discharge, Autopsy and Chaos UK without replicating them. The band appeared on the cover of Decibel’s December 2013 issue and earned the #12 position on the magazine’s Top 40 Albums of 2013. Additionally, TOXIC HOLOCAUST ranked in at #5 on Noisecreep’s 10 Best Vinyl Releases of 2013.

TOXIC HOLOCAUST:

6/13/2104 Copenhell – Copenhagen, DK
w/ Black Tusk, Downfall Of Gaia
6/14/2104 Underground – Köln, DE
6/15/2104 Chez Heinz – Hannover, DE
6/16/2104 Bastard Club – Osnabrück ,DE
6/17/2104 Chemiefabrik – Dresden, DE
6/18/2104 Garage – Saarbrücken, DE
6/19/2104 De Centrale – Gent, BE
6/20/2104 Hellfest – Clisson, FR
6/21/2104 SkullFest – Wervik, BE

Toxic Holocaust - Chemistry Of Consciousness - promo cover pic

TOXIC HOLOCAUST mutated into existence in 1999, when Joel Grind merged his love for classic punk and metal into his ideal band. Like his influences – Bathory, Venom, English Dogs, Possessed, Broken Bones – TOXIC HOLOCAUST offers up blazing riffs, gravel-throated vocals, and a deadly fixation on the evil in man and a post-apocalyptic world wrapped in a DIY attitude.

Check out the psychedelic video for “Acid Fuzz” HERE as well as a full stream of Chemistry of Consciousness at the official Relapse Records BandCamp page HERE. Chemistry Of Consciousness is available worldwide on CD, LP and digitally. Order your copy HERE. For iTunes orders, point your browser HERE.

Grave Robber - promo live photo - 2013 - #6767

January 23, 2014  Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is very excited to announce that Fort Wayne, Indiana’s premier Horror Punk band GRAVE ROBBER has gladly accepted the unenviable challenge of being the “show closer” and final performer for the Pre-Fest Showcase of the Warriors Of Metal Fest VII, which will take place at O’Shecky’s LIVE Bar & Grill on Thursday, June 26 in Columbus, Ohio.

Vocalist Wretched states:  “We are honored and excited to have been invited by Datis to play the Warriors Of Metal Pre-fest and our second time on the O’Shecky’s stage. As a theatrical horror punk band, we have always had utmost respect for all things metal and have always included touches of metal in our artistic vision of horror. In fact, similar to The Misfits, we have found that quite a large percentage of our fanbase are straight up metalheads who hate punk, but somehow find common ground with Grave Robber and love what we do. We are greatly looking forward to playing way too loud, way too fast, way too aggressive and making some friends and comrades in aggressive musical endeavors. Thank you again, Datis from the bottom of our reanimated, undead hearts. Be afraid, be very afraid!”

Believe the hype with the official music video for GRAVE ROBBER’s “Altered States,” now playing below:

Bat - band publicity pic - 2013 - B&W - #1061

BAT was forged in fire when Ryan Waste met Griffin in Austin at a Municipal Waste gig in 2007. Sharing the same musical tastes and metal/punk backgrounds, the two immediately hit it off. Griffin hadn’t performed with DRI since the late eighties and itched to play again. “We eventually spoke of doing a project together,” relays Ryan. “Originally I was going to play all the guitars, bass and vocals and it would be a studio thing. We sat on this idea for years and humored it every time I’d pass through Texas. It seemed too exciting to not make this a real live band so I asked Nick from our current heavy metal band Volture if he wanted on board as a permanent guitarist and it was a done deal. I would have my hands full singing and playing bass as it was.” BAT, which was the original working title before Volture, seemed to suite the style they were going for so it stuck. “Nick and I cooked up a few raw demo songs, I laid down some basic garage band drums and we sent the tracks to Felix. With Felix living in Austin and Nick and I in Richmond, Virginia, it had to be arranged like that to start. Over this last summer Felix flew in town for a week and we banged out those songs with live drums and wrote a couple more on the fly. With only a few practices under our belts we recorded all the music in one day on reel-to-reel analog tape. It was a challenge to not over analyze and nail down all live takes. It was indeed primitive. We wanted a raw sound to begin with and this turned out to be the ultimate way to achieve it.”

The Primitive Age EP is available as a “Pay-What-You-Want-Including-Free” download TODAY at the official BAT BandCamp page HERE. Tankcrimes is also offering a “Primitive Pack” preorder bundle which includes a double sided T-shirt, embroidered patch, die-cut sticker and cassette tape all for a thrifty $20 plus shipping. Nab your bundle today at THIS LOCATION.
