Necrot - Blood Offerings - Billboard album flyer - 2017 - #330MO33ILNF

“Blood Offerings is all old ground, but it is hallowed earth. We’ve heard everything played on this album before, but we’ve never heard it played quite like this. If you’re that curmudgeon who keeps saying nothing can displace your aging death metal album collection, it might finally be time to buy a new record.” – Decibel

Blood Offerings is the newest studio recording from Bay Area death cult NECROT. Released via Tankcrimes on June 9th, the record earned the #29 spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart and #52 on Billboard’s New Artist Chart upon its first week of release!

The eight ravaging tracks comprising NECROT‘s Blood Offerings were captured by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer (Vastum, Graves At Sea), mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Gatecreeper), and comes shrouded in the unhallowed cover art of Marald Van Haasteren (Bolt Thrower, Baroness). Blood Offerings is out now on CD, LP, and digitally on Tankcrimes and on cassette through Sentient Ruin Laboratories. The limited vinyl edition comes as a foil-stamped, gatefold deluxe LP available in four-color variants: 150 in purple splatter, 350 in gold splatter, 500 in black, and 1000 in gold.

Stream the record in full at THIS LOCATION where you can also purchase the record digitally.

NECROT will embark on the month-long North American tour with Denmark-based Death Metal tyrants, Undergang, beginning June 30th and rolling through July 29th.

Spewing forth eight tracks amassed from three hard-to-find and long out-of-print demo tapes, the record reaped critical acclaim from fans and media alike compelled by the band’s unrepentant Autopsy, Bolt Thrower, and Sacrilege worship.

“Metaphorically, it’s like putting your ear up to the chest of a rotting corpse and listening to the parasites eat it from the inside out. NECROT has recorded an album so putrescent you can almost smell it.” – Paste Magazine

“…an album that does the region’s growling, guttural legacy proud, and with a new layer of contemporary punch.” – Treble

“…raw, fast and razor-sharp… a pummeling at its finest!” – Metal Assault

“…Blood Offerings separates itself from the pack by offering, in addition to blood, some damn fine riffs.” – Last Rites

“Engrossing from start to finish, NECROT have crafted a death metal masterpiece in Blood Offerings”that looks reverently towards the genre’s past while casting its own deadly shadow for the future.” – Riot Nerd

DEMON EYE – North Carolina Occult Metal Unit To Release “Prophecies And Lies” Full-Length Via Soulseller Records – New Single Streaming + Band To Play Maryland Doom Fest This Weekend

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on June 22, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

North Carolina-based DEMON EYE will unleash their third full-length, Prophecies And Lies, via Soulseller Records later this summer.

A monolithic display of mighty riffs, haunting melodies, and fist-raising anthems, the eleven-track burner was recorded by Corrosion Of Conformity’s Mike Dean in the band’s hometown of Raleigh and finds their fiery fusion of heavy classic rock, proto metal, and traditional doom at its most intense to date. DEMON EYE conjures vintage, heavy darkness for modern-day evils.

Prophecies And Lies will be released on August 11th on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. In the meantime, sample album opener, “The Waters And The Wild,” at THIS LOCATION and below:

In related news, DEMON EYE will play this year’s edition of the Maryland Doom Fest alongside Captain Beyond, Lo-Pan, Brimstone Coven and more. The band will also play a record release show in August with Captain Beyond with additional live performances to be announced in the weeks to come.

DEMON EYE:
6/23/2017 Cafe 611 @ Maryland Doom Fest – Frederick, MD

8/18/2017 Pourhouse – Raleigh, NC w/ Captain Beyond [info]

Prophecies And Lies Track Listing:
1. The Waters And The Wild
2. In The Spider’s Eye
3. The Redeemer
4. Kismet
5. Infinite Regress
6. Dying For It
7. Politic Devine
8. Power Of One
9. Vagabond
10. Prophecies And Lies
11. Morning’s Son

DEMON EYE was unearthed in Raleigh, North Carolina during the Spring of 2012. Shortly thereafter, the band began receiving international recognition for their highly acclaimed songcraft and stunning live performances. DEMON EYE channels the introspective darkness of Pentagram, the heavy grooves of Black Sabbath, and the fist-banging shred of early Iron Maiden. They have shared the stage with the likes of Pentagram, Corrosion Of Conformity, High On Fire, Spirit Caravan, The Obsessed, The Sword, King’s X, Loincloth, YOB, Witch Mountain, Lord Dying, and many more of their heavy brethren.

In early 2014, the band issued released their Soulseller Records debut, Leave The Light, which met with excellent worldwide reviews and earned them festival invites. Three years into their career, they released Tempora Infernalia which brought them to even wider audiences and solidified their fan base within the international Metal community. Sputnik Music placed it among the “strongest albums 2015,” About.com lauded a, “fine offering of smoky, doom-tinged ’70s-style occult rock with reverent nods to Deep Purple, The Scorpions, Black Sabbath and Thin Lizzy,” while Decibel Magazine hailed the band’s, “doomy, very melodic dourness,” adding, “there’s no reason to not get pumped.”

WARBEAST – Texas Metal Titans To Release “Enter The Arena” Full-Length Via Housecore Records This August

Vocalist Bruce Corbitt Announces Retirement Following Cancer Diagnosis – Final Farewell Footage Posted + Medical Fundraising Campaign Launched

___________________________

Texas metal titans WARBEAST will release their long-waited new full-length, Enter The Arena, this August via Philip H. Anselmo‘s own Housecore Records. Captured at Anselmo’s Nodferatu’s Lair, mixed by Mike Thompson at the Riff Factory and mastered by Lee Russell, Enter The Arena features newest WARBEAST recruits, guitarist Drew Shoup and bassist Lyric Ferchaud and stands among the band’s most potent, volatile, and unrepentant powerful offering yet.

“We recorded Enter The Arena exactly a decade after we formed WARBEAST,” notes vocalist Bruce Corbitt. “The nucleus and founding members of this band [guitarist Scott Shelby, drummer Joey Gonzalez, and Corbitt] provided the essential veteran leadership that was vital for us to reach our goal of creating our magnum opus. The three of us also contributed our unique individual styles to guarantee that we still sound like WARBEAST. But with the addition of our two newest members – guitarist Drew Shoup and bassist Lyric Ferchaud – who I call the ‘Youngbloods,’ it was like adding a breath-of-fresh-air to our chemistry. We definitely sound like a well-oiled-machine on this album. So get prepared for the upcoming onslaught of pure, fresh, and quintessential Texas thrash!”

Enter The Arena is WARBEAST at its finest in performance, writing and tone quality,” adds Shelby. “I’m confident that it will please any rivethead out there! I believe it’s mine and our best work to date.”

Enter The Arena will see release on August 4th. Preorder bundles are currently available. For CD bundles visit THIS LOCATION. For vinyl bundles go to THIS LOCATION

The release of WARBEAST‘s Enter The Arenafollows Corbitt’s recent and tragic announcement that he’s been diagnosed with esophageal cancer –a treatable though rarely curable disease – facing the likelihood that he will never be able to sing again.

In a recent Facebook message to fans, Corbitt revealed, “After much discussion with the doctors and specialist, they’ve told me there’s no chance within any reasonable time that I’ll ever be able to perform again. So it breaks my heart at this time that I’m forced to announce my retirement from singing. I’m sorry to all of my bandmates for letting them down. I’m devastated with all of this hitting me so fast. I’m still in shock. Thanks for all of the great support all these years,” he continues. “You’re the best fans and I love all of you! We at least have a great WARBEAST album and music video coming soon. I can’t even begin to explain my feelings. You guys have given me the strength I need to even prepare for this fight. Honestly, I was close to losing hope that there was any good to come out of this. Of course, I’m scared for my life, like any normal human being would be. Those moments when I can get on Facebook and scroll through all of your messages, the emotion takes over. I cry, I get stronger, I also realize what all of you mean to me. I do believe in the power prayer and positive vibes. And I have all of you to thank for that.”

Corbitt, who recently began an intensive schedule of radiation treatments, played his final show on Saturday May 27th at the Rail Club in Fort Worth, Texas. View the farewell footage at THIS LOCATION.

Additionally, the band’s previously scheduled CD release party will be taking place on Friday, July 14th at The Rail Club in Ft. Worth, Texas. Vocals will be handled by Anselmo, Edwin Neal (Texas Chain Saw Massacre), and Wayne Abney of Hammer Witch.

**A special fund to help with the Corbitt family’s escalating medical expenses has been set up. To donate visit THIS LOCATION.

Enter The Arena Track Listing:

  1. Centuries Of Poisoned Soil
  2. Punishment For Gluttony
  3. Orchestration Of Violence
  4. Maze Of The Minotaur
  5. Hitchhiker
  6. Chemicals Consuming
  7. Enter The Arena
  8. The Scalping
  9. Conjuration With The Devil
  10. Ancient Hate

WARBEAST:

7/14/2017 The Rail Club – Ft. Worth, TX * CD Release Party [info]

With the “retro-thrash” trend in full-swing, and hordes of bands trying to re-create “old school metal,” Texas monsters WARBEAST offer the real thing. Their music is not the result of careful study of ’80s thrash or classic metal; it just comes naturally because that is who they are.

The roots of WARBEAST are firmly entrenched in the legendary ’80s Texas underground metal scene. Vocalist Bruce Corbitt was the voice of speed metal splatter kings Rigor Mortis, who achieved major label success on Capitol Records in 1988. Guitarist Scott Shelby was part of the riff machine behind Gammacide, one of Texas’ most furious thrash exports. Drum tornado Joey Gonzalez now also provides blasts and mayhem for Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals and Superjoint.

The band’s Krush The Enemy debut was released in 2010 on Housecore Records. It featured ten tracks covering a wide range of Metal terrain aimed squarely at the neck-snapping headbanger in the front row. For WARBEAST, “Metal” signifies high-speed riffing, thunderous double bass, roaring vocals, and plenty of blazing guitar solos. By the spring of 2012, WARBEAST hunkered down to record Destroy with legendary Pantera and Down frontman and label founder Philip H. Anselmo behind the board at his own Nodferatu’s Lair. The result was an uncompromising and unbridled thrash assault.

Living up to its moniker, the collection saw the Texas outfit sharpen their claws and bare their teeth even more than before. “I want people to feel like they’ve been hit with a sledgehammer ten times in a row when they hear this,” said Corbitt of the release. “As long as they feel strongly about, we’ve accomplished our mission.” Five years later, it’s time to unleash the sonic battery of Enter The Arena.
