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.”

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.

New England Death Squad SCALPEL will self-release new album Methods to Delusion on July 25. A promo video for “Labors of Loathing” is available at the following link:

https://youtu.be/pqIFEmor2fg

Crusted severed toes nailed to walls; humans covered head to toe in needles administering horrific psychoactive chemicals; an infant’s head being turned to apple sauce on a kitchen counter’s edge – these are only fragments of the surreal and vicious stories told on SCALPEL’s Methods to Delusion. Wielding chainsaw guitars and sledgehammer percussion, Methods to Delusion brings back a psychedelic element to extreme music, inflicting chaos and sickening truth unto the listener. The album was engineered by Colin Marston (GORGUTS) at Thousand Caves Studios.

Pre-order: http://scalpel.bigcartel.com/product/methods-to-delusion-pre-order-only

Track Listing:

  1. The Cleaner
  2. Labors of Loathing
  3. The Stink

  5. Interdelude
  6. Methods to Delusion
  7. The Woodsman (Part II)
  8. Brooding in the Gloom
  9. Lung Butter
  10. Intensified Festering

BAND BIO:

Death Metal is a visceral art that is dependent upon the extreme dedication of its loyal fans. We have no other purpose but to deliver a version of this art to those same fans like us, whose lives have been claimed by the likes of SUFFOCATION, CARCASS, and DEATH. It is in this vein that we construct our own brutal dirges, devoid of genre restriction and eager to explore the darker realms of music.

SCALPEL is a four-piece band hailing from various cesspools in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Guitarists Manny Egbert and Taylor Brennan assume dual vocal duties layered on top of blistering guitars; Matt Bellows belches deafening low-end proficiency on the bass guitar, and Chip Fay thunders behind the drum set, collectively driving the chaos that is the SCALPEL sound.
