ULTHAR – Bay Area Death Trio Begins North American Tour; Trailer Posted

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on March 22, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Bay area death trio ULTHAR will kick off a brutalizing North American tour today in Oakland, California. The trek will make its way through nearly three-dozen cities, coming to a close May 24th in Santa Fe, New Mexico. See all confirmed dates below and view the tour trailer HERE.

Featuring within its ranks Shelby Lermo (Vastum, Extremity), Justin Ennis (Void Omnia, ex-Mutilation Rites, ex-Tombs), and Steve Peacock (Mastery, Pandiscordian Necrogenesis, Pale Chalice), ULTHAR is touring in support of their Cosmovore debut LP, released late last year via 20 Buck Spin. Cosmovore was engineered, recorded, and mixed by Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil, Deathgrave) at Earhammer Studios, mastered by Justin Weis at Trackworx, and unleashes the feral urgency of dizzying, Absu-like black metal with the bludgeoning ferocity of classic death metal. Thematically heavy on weird, supernatural horror and a bizarre Rudimentary Peni surrealism, ULTHAR is a difficult to classify spectral entity.

Find ULTHAR’s Cosmovore on CD, LP, cassette, and all digital formats HERE or HERE.

Posted in Hard Rock, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock bands, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on March 18, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

From: Baroness Newsletter:

Our new album Gold & Grey is out June 14 and our new song “Borderlines” is out now, via Abraxan Hymns.

You can pre-order Gold & Grey HERE and get an instant download of “Borderlines,” which you can listen to everywhere HERE. Limited run vinyl is available in the Baroness store.

Our goal is, was, and will always be to write increasingly superior, more honest and compelling songs, and to develop a more unique and challenging sound. I’m sure we have just finished our best, most adventurous album to date. We dug incredibly deep, challenged ourselves and recorded a record I’m positive we could never again replicate. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to know Sebastian, Nick and Gina as both my bandmates and my friends. They have pushed me to become a better songwriter, musician and vocalist. We’re all extremely excited for this release, which includes quite a few “firsts” for the band, and we’re thrilled to be back on tour to play these psychotic songs for our fans. Expect some surprises.

GOLD & GREY – TRACKLISTING:

  1. Front Toward Enemy
  2. I’m Already Gone
  3. Seasons
  4. Sevens
  5. Tourniquet
  6. Anchor’s Lament

THE SCABBY GHOULS – Stream Self-Titled Debut

Posted in horror, horror punk, Music, music news, news, punk, Punk rock, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on March 14, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Horror punks The Scabby Ghouls are now streaming the entirety of their self-titled debut over at Alternative Control.

Stream the album here: http://www.alternativecontrolct.com/music/album-premiere-the-scabby-ghouls-s-t/

“The Scabby Ghouls” blends party-loving punk and the macabre seamlessly for a truly fun and unique experience. Described by fans as “Scooby-Doo Punk” or “Haunted House Punk”, this band celebrates all things creepy, spooky and bizarre year-round. Whether harkening back to the Elizabeth Short murder in the ‘50s, venting in frustration at the inability to drive, or punning on everyone’s favorite Elm Street murderer, the lyrics are as gruesome as they are cheerful when delivered by the Hazards, who also handle guitar work adeptly. This album showcases the band’s ability to blend various punk sub-genres with their own unique sound for an altogether novel experience.

To celebrate the release, The Scabby Ghouls will be playing alongside other local punk and hardcore bands including Stronghold, Hand-Painted Police Car, and Dummy Head Torpedo at the Lookout Lounge on Friday March 15th 2019 at 8 P.M. (Doors at 7 P.M.). $7.00 cover, all-ages show.

The Scabby Ghouls are:
Denise Hazard – Vocals, Rhythm Guitar
Louie Hazard – Lead Guitar, Backup Vocals
Alex Steffens – Bass Guitar
Nathan Christensen – Drums

ARTWORK FOR THE BLIND (Death/Thrash Metal) Release New Video

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, music videos, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on March 9, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Kentucky metallers Artwork for the Blind released a video for their track “Shoot The Moon (El Roacho)” off sophomore album II earlier this week.  The jarring political statement showcases the band’s psychedelic approach to the groove and death subgenres.

Guitarist Sol. E. Williams says of this new offering, “The new vid… Watch the details.”

Witness those details here:

About Artwork For the Blind:

In 2012, Artwork for the Blind began with an original line up of Chris Brackett (Guitarist), Sean Coy Curry (Vocalist), Mike Hoehn (Bassist), and Larry Myers (Drummer). The quartet soon began writing their first set of songs and gigging around the Louisville area. In 2014, the group released their self-produced, self-titled album to much praise in the Louisville local metal scene. Then in 2015, the group started writing and recording their second self-produced album, II.

Soon after II was released, guitarist Chris Brackett decided to bow out of the group citing health issues. The group had been recording at Louisville guitarist Sol. E. Williams house, so it was only natural that Sol. be asked to take Brackett’s place on guitar.  Almost immediately, the band began to extend its range throughout the Midwest.

Soon after joining, Sol. began writing material for a new EP.  In the summer of 2017, Artwork began recording for another self produced release. In August of 2018, the group made their third release, the 5-song EP titled A Dying Breed and the Living Proof to much acclaim in their growing following.

Currently the group is writing and recording material for a fourth release with singles expecting to be cut as the album progresses. Furthermore they expect to be scheduling shows throughout the Midwest this summer and releasing videos in support of the last summer EP.
