UFOMAMMUT: Mini-Documentary For Fifteen-Year Anniversary DVD Posted; XV Set For Release October 15th

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Following recent news of the upcoming XV DVD, documenting fifteen years of incredible psychedelic doom from Italian trio, UFOMAMMUT, a clip of the ninety-minute documentary on the band, their equipment, friends which consumes just one part of the DVD has been posted. The exposé includes several minutes of interrogations with all three of the members and some brief live footage sampled from XV, and is viewable now at THIS LOCATION.

Since 2013, UFOMAMMUT has been working on a special video project documenting their incredibly vibrant discography and unbeatable live delivery, now set for release as XV. As the band’s visual elements are of of equal importance as their music, with virtually every album created with a video counterpart specifically fitted for said release and their corresponding live performances of the tunes. The DVD features over three hours of footage — including Magickal Mastery Live, a twelve-song live act — interviews, outtakes, and extras, all documenting these first fifteen years of the band. This audiovisual experience will also be available as a special wooden 8GB USB drive, with both versions set for official release via the band’s own Supernatural Cat Records on October 15th.

Preorders for the XV DVD can be placed by North American fans via Earsplit Distro HERE and internationally through Supernatural Cat HERE.

UFOMAMMUT will return to North America for their first major tour of the continent in 2015, including their first trip to Maryland Deathfest. With only a brief 2008 West Coast venture in the US under their belt, the full-on upcoming tour will see the band spending several weeks stateside, bringing their magical, mysterious and pulverizing doom metal to the masses in support of their acclaimed ORO double-album set, released in 2013, as well as their next full-length release, which the band is currently preparing to record in October for release again through Neurot in early 2015.

UFOMAMMUT Tour Dates:
10/03-05/2014 Up In Smoke – Pratteln, Switzerland
5/21/2015 Maryland Deathfest – Baltimore, MD

TODAY IS THE DAY: First Single From Animal Mother Released Via Metal Injection Video Premiere; Tour With Lord Mantis Announced

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

The first single from TODAY IS THE DAY’s tenth LP, Animal Mother, has been released via Metal Injection through a disturbing new video for the ninth track, “Masada,” as the band begins to divulge the newest developments in their massive upcoming tour schedule.

Produced by visual architect David Hall of Handshake Inc., the disturbing accompaniment for “Masada” delivers the track in a vibrant, high-contrast collage of footage, combining imagery born of nature’s itinerary and humanity’s inherently sadistic and perverse ways. Cult leaders summon more flies to the fire while children learn to handle automatic weapons. Brains decay and maggots feast upon the flesh of mammals, while a twisted, obfuscated plot unfolds amidst several unnamed humans in this disgustingly satisfying slab of cinematic madness. Undeniable lust, seething anger, inward loathing and outward aggression all flow in an occult blend of Americana that is as unique as the song. In other words, it’s “TODAY IS THE DAY as fuck.”

Issued director David Hall of the video: “I’m always honored when Steve Austin asks me to create a video for TODAY IS THE DAY. Early on we decided that ‘Masada’ should be the track people hear first from the new album because it really represents the album in terms of rock and diversity and TITD insanity. Steve wanted a video that would infect minds and reflect the madness of the music. I ate some meatloaf and went on a vision quest and was shown a couple in a desert being corrupted by their dysfunction and desire to control one another. So this is what I made.”

Strap in and send your day into a downward spiral with TODAY IS THE DAY’s “Masada” video via Metal Injection RIGHT HERE.

A trailer for Animal Mother, also created by Hall, is also playing at THIS LOCATION.

Southern Lord will release Animal Mother on LP, CD and digital download in North America on October 14th, as the band’s first venture for the label. With Animal Mother still lurking in the shadows, the band prepares for an extensive bout of widespread live actions in support of the album. From October 7th through the 26th, TODAY IS THE DAY will shred through the US on a headlining tour with direct support from Chicago deviants, Lord Mantis. This is the first phase of touring which will expand in the coming days, taking the band out on several more excursions through the rest of the year and well into 2015. Stand by for more major developments about to be issued in the coming days.

TODAY IS THE DAY w/ Lord Mantis:
10/07/2014 Geno’s – Portland, ME
10/08/2014 Sonny’s – Dover, NH
10/09/2014 Spotlight Tavern – Beverly, MA
10/10/2014 Dusk – Providence, RI
10/11/2014 The Pinch – Washington, DC
10/12/2014 The Acheron – Brooklyn, NY
10/13/2014 Kung-Fu Necktie – Philadelphia, PA
10/14/2014 Church – Boston, MA
10/15/2014 The Depot – York, PA
10/16/2014 Cafe 611 – Frederick, MD
10/17/2014 TBA – Long Island, NY
10/18/2014 Jabber Jaws – Allentown, PA
10/19/2014 Hideaway – Johnson City, TN
10/20/2014 The Handlebar – Pensacola, FL
10/21/2014 Siberia – New Orleans, LA
10/22/2014 TBA
10/23/2014 Ground Zero – Spartanburg, SC
10/24/2014 TBA
10/25/2014 Hangar 21 – Shreveport, LA
10/26/2014 Riot Room – Kansas City, MO
10/26/2014 Hi Tone – Memphis, TN

As always, the dejected and vengeful hymns TODAY IS THE DAY delivers with their latest opus are among the most scathing passages of audio one will experience, as Animal Mother unloads just short of a solid hour of pure anguish. The band’s lineup features the rhythm section of bassist Sean Conkling (Regression, Burn Your Halo, Sprawl) and drummer Jeff Lohrber (Enabler, ex-Harlots), fronted by cult leader, founding guitarist/vocalist Steve Austin. Through fifteen diversified attacks, Animal Mother’s wrath recalls elements of several seminal TITD albums, merging the dementia of Temple Of The Morning Star with the blazing delivery of In The Eyes Of God, yet several acoustic and more melodic angles elevate the LP’s material to entirely different dimensions. The Animal Mother recording sessions took place at the notorious architect’s own Austin Enterprises in the deeply wooded Maine wilderness this brutal past Winter, the material fully produced and mastered by Austin, and shrouded in original artwork by Samantha Muljat.

BLEACH EVERYTHING / VORS Split 7-Inch Due In October Via Magic Bullet Records Richmond Punk Destroyers & Los Angeles Synth Creep Unite

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Magic Bullet Records has locked a killer, two-band split 7” for October release, marking the debuts of two fairly new names to the scene — Richmond, Virginia’s BLEACH EVERYTHING and Los Angeles, California’s VORS — both of which include some very not new names to the scene. Confused? Allow us to delve…

BLEACH EVERYTHING kick off the festivities with “The Moaner,” a demented little number about a violent man that lives in your attic undetected. Musically, the pace is as frantic and urgent as the final sands in the proverbial hourglass. Drums are crushed, buzzsaw guitars cut deeply across the speakers, and overdriven bass pushes along the possessed and just flat-out eerie vocals in a pre-meditated murderous game of musical chairs. Featuring current members of Iron Reagan, Suppression, and former members of Jesuit and Corn On Macabre, you know full-well it’s going to be a completely twisted take on music as most people conventionally know it.

Like all great bi-polar incidents and episodes, VORS complements the violent carnage of BLEACH EVERYTHING via a deliberate, dead-behind-the-eyes ditty appropriately titled “Mood Swinger.” Synth-heavy and glacially paced, the track sounds like it was written from the fire escape outside of the kitchen window you’re obliviously walking around behind (towel optional). Drenched in the gritty low-budget outsider sleaze that defined many of the great VHS hits of the ‘70s and ‘80s, this could have easily been the soundtrack to “Maniac,” “Deranged,” “Possessed” and the like. It’s cold, it’s rainy, and it’s highly likely that VORS (aka J Bennett from Ides Of Gemini) is talking and laughing to himself while cutting the phone lines in your neighborhood.

The whole bloody affair is packaged in a disturbingly meticulous and obsessive wrap from the hands and the mind of former Kink.com set-dresser STK MTN. This is the kind of record the brown paper bag was invented for.

Magic Bullet Records will let this auditory assault out of the bag on digital download and both black and white 7” vinyl pressings worldwide on October 14th.

Additional news on both acts will be stalking you shortly.

BLEACH EVERYTHING / VORS Track Listing:
1. The Moaner (BLEACH EVERYTHING)

ANAAL NATHRAKH: UK Extreme Metal Duo Wages War With “Monstrum In Animo,” Now Playing At Decibel

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Long running UK extreme metal duo/recent Metal Blade signees, ANAAL NATHRAKH, are pleased to soil your day with the repugnant sounds of “Monstrum In Animo,” now playing at Decibel Magazine.

The ferocious new hymn comes by way of the band’s soon-to-be detonated Desideratum full-length. Produced by guitarist/bassist/programmer Mick Kenney, with vocals recorded at Necrodeath Studios in Birmingham, and music tracked and mixed at The Black Flamingo in Orange County, California, Desideratum flaunts eleven fantastically mischievous odes of agony and despair. Declares Decibel Magazine, “the ridiculously consistent Birmingham black metallers are simply one of the most utterly fearsome and inventive outfits currently operating in the modern extreme metal scene. Elite level mind-fuckers. Aural devastators…”

Feel the scorch of third movement, “Monstrum In Animo,” now playing at Decibel at THIS LOCATION.

Named, “one of the best bands out there when it comes to evoking horror and terror… a master class in extreme metal,” by MetalSucks, “a thrill ride of horrors,” by Pitchfork and the, “soundtrack to our demise,” by PopMatters, ANAAL NATHRAKH — Kenney alongside vocalist David Hunt AKA V.I.T.R.I.O.L. — exists for one purpose: to replicate the sounds of true evil. Forged in fury in 1999, the pair has gained a reputation for expressing precisely that. With both screaming banshee and traditional vocals set against an impenetrable wall of controlled chaos, what ANAAL NATHRAKH manifests is plainly terrifying. Their winding resume includes not only the release of seven critically lauded long-players and an EP but collaborations with such legendary talents as Attila Csihar (Mayhem), Shane Embury and Danny Herrera (Napalm Death), Nick Barker (Testament, Dimmu Borgir), Joe Horvath (Circle Of Dead Children), Sethlans Teitan (Watain) and more. Combined with rankings among “best album of the year” polls and “album of the month” in the press and cover appearances on revered magazines such as Terrorizer, ANAAL NATHRAKH’s position as one of the leading lights in extreme metal is irrefutable. Hallmarked by pulverizing musical dexterity, ingenuity and breadth, married with mercurial, intensely misanthropic and sharp intelligence, ANAAL NATHRAKH’s sound is imbued with a palpable sense of menace that is virtually unmatched in the metal world.

Desideratum will send the Earth crashing into the Sun on October 28th, 2014. In the interim, brave souls can still sample first single, “Idol,” now streaming at metalblade.com/anaalathrakh where you’ll also find a host of killer preorder packages. Additionally, fans who preorder the record via iTunes will receive a download of “Idol” instantly.

Stay tuned for further ANAAL NATHRAKH developments in the coming weeks.

To celebrate its unholy unveiling, underground music gateway, Cvlt Nation, is polluting the Internet by streaming the entire eight-hymn sermon.

Says Cvlt Nation, “Feeling like the world is looking too suspiciously friendly today, like a group of Jehovah’s on your doorstep, trying to lure you into heaven via a pamphlet? Then hit play below on our full stream of HOD’s Book Of The Worm, a sickening onslaught of black death that will have old church ladies diving for cover!”

Stream Book Of The Worm from start to scorching finale at Cvlt Nation at THIS LOCATION.

SAHHR: Los Angeles-Based Blackened Metal Legion To Release Debut EP This Halloween Via Domestic Genocide; Teaser Video Posted

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Southern California based blackened metal perpetrators, SAHHR, are readying to drop their self-titled debut EP upon the masses this Halloween!

Featuring past and current members of Skull And Bullets, Dowager, Scarecrow and Unwritten Law, SAHHR fuses all the prime elements of black metal, death metal and metalcore into a bestial mix of unrepentant audio torment fit for devout followers of Watain, 1349, Goatwhore and even Lamb Of God. The three-hymns comprising their forthcoming EP were written by vocalist Ryllyeh and guitarist Aarsoth, recorded at Lot 54 Studio in Huntington Beach, California by Dylan-James Ehren Brock (Ghost Of Abel, Skull And Bullets, Dowager, Intestinal Buffet) and will be released via Domestic Genocide on the unholiest of days, Halloween, alongside a special bloodbath of a video for the song “Slay The Savior.”

Comments vocalist Ryllyeh: “We really feel people are going to dig the EP because these three songs really encompass the true scope of our sound. We try our best to stretch the limits of traditional black metal by adding elements from many different genres of extreme music, while still keeping it fluid and of course, at all times, HEAVY. We are pleased to join the Domestic Genocide roster as we’ve had dealings with the owner, Black Moor, before. He has very eclectic taste in metal and thought he would understand our sound. He also has a killer crew of people working behind the scenes so we know this debut will get in the correct hands.”

Sahhr Track Listing:
1. Altar Of Maggots
2. Slay The Savior
3. Miscreant

SAHHR formed earlier this year by singer/songwriter Ryllyeh. A veteran of the New York City punk and metal scenes since the early 1980s, Ryllyeh’s (AKA-Joe Truck, also a world renowned tattoo artist) past musical endeavors include time spent in ‘80s deathrock bands Scarecrow and Braineaters, the latter of which included ex-Samhain guitarist, Damien. He also plays bass and screams in doom heavyweights-Dowager. Ryllyeh united with guitarist Aarsoth earlier this year and instantly began composing what would become the trio of tracks occupying the EP.

Sahhr will be released via Domestic Genocide Records on October 31st, 2014. In the meantime check out the twenty-second teaser clip below.

SAHHR Personnel:
Ryllyeh – Vocals
Aarsoth – Guitars
Nungh – Drums
Jukgoh – Bass

ORANGE GOBLIN Set To Return To North America With Down

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

With ORANGE GOBLIN’s Back From The Abyss full-length now three weeks away from release, the band has confirmed the first North American tour in support of the record. Set to begin December 1st and run through December 21st, ORANGE GOBLIN will return to the stage touring alongside Down, Bl’ast, and labelmates, King Parrot!

Vocalist Ben Ward comments, “I remember being a spotty 19 year old rushing out to the record store to buy the first Down album NOLA the very day it came out in 1994. Now, twenty years on, I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming that ORANGE GOBLIN are heading back to North America as main support to the mighty Down. It really is fairytale stuff for us. Down are one of the bands that are the reason ORANGE GOBLIN exists. To be given this opportunity to go out to promote our brand new album, Back From The Abyss, to the Down fans is just a dream come true the rest of the band and I can’t wait to get started. The fact that we also get to see Bl’ast and King Parrot every night just makes it all so hard to believe! Hail the Leaf! Hail the RIFF! Hail DOWN!”

Recorded earlier this year, Back From The Abyss reunites ORANGE GOBLIN with producer Jamie Dodd; who served as producer on the band’s best selling album in North America to date – 2012’s A Eulogy For The Damned. Two songs already have fans globally excited; Loudwire and Metal Hammer premiered the Motörhead-tinged “The Devil’s Whip” to overwhelming success on August 15th. Last week Noisey premiered the first video from the album for the song “Sabbath Hex.” The band is currently working on a second video for the song “Mythical Knives” which is expected to be completed by month’s end.

Touring for the album will start in Europe on October 9th. Travelling the continent with friends Saint Vitus, ORANGE GOBLIN will pull song selections from their extensive catalog now spanning eight studio albums.

SOCIETY SUCKER: Decibel Magazine Streaming New EP From North Carolina Hardcore Group

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Decibel Magazine’s infamous Deciblog portal is hosting an exclusive stream of Society Sucker, the brutally groove-laden new EP from the Wilmington, North Carolina act of the same name, in honor of its parole date today. Alongside the five-song platter of retribution, the write-up of the EP states of SOCIETY SUCKER’s brand new output “is rife with gloriously grimy grooves, rancid earworm riffage, and nasty, nasty straight-from-the-gutter breakdowns.”

Unload SOCIETY SUCKER’s finest fury courtesy of Decibel at THIS LOCATION.

Officially out today through Get This Right Records, Society Sucker comes in several deviations, the 7” pressed on three different colors of wax and the cover in four variations, which when combined, form one larger image, as viewable RIGHT HERE. Place orders for the vinyl HERE, and the digital HERE.

Following their hometown record release show for the EP several days ago, further tour actions will be plotted and announced over the coming weeks.

Having quickly surged to the forefront of the quickly growing North Carolina hardcore scene since forming only a year ago, SOCIETY SUCKER builds their foundation in the sturdy tradition of acts like Subzero, Next Step Up and Merauder, with a slick and streetwise approach packed with aggro guitar lines, slamming breakdowns and belittling gang chants fans of Trapped Under Ice, Suburban Scum and Incendiary need to get on without hesitation. Society Sucker was recorded in February of this year at The Skylight Studio with Vince Ratti and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, and bears bold cover art by Steven Kulesza. SOCIETY SUCKER is a band committed to keeping hardcore hard. This is the proof.

DIE CHOKING: Cvlt Nation Releases Track From New Seven-Inch Details Of Legal Living Included In EP Posted

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Now just two weeks from release is the second 7” from Philadelphia-based hyperthrash/grindcore trio, DIE CHOKING, simply entitled II, and as The Compound prepares for the wax to hit the streets, today Cvlt Nation leaks a new track from the decimating EP.

Brutal doesn’t even begin to describe the output this destructive, light-speed release, as DIE CHOKING picks up where their debut self-titled EP left off, discharging five songs in less than six minutes. Yet an equally heavy theme surges within the band’s lyrics on II, most notably in its closing track, “Tonsil.” With the vinyl version of the EP, the band is including a printed document which will serve as a legal, personal Living Will, to memorialize one’s final wishes upon their time of death.

Issues founding bassist/vocalist Paul J. Herzog of the track’s lyrics and the inclusion of the Living Will with the EP, “This song is a dedication to the memory of Jahi McMath who died on December 12th 2013. Despite the absolute, irreversible nature of brain death she (as far as I know) remains on ‘life’ support. The controversy of this is obvious but my interest is geared more towards the broader subject of CHOICE in regards to medical treatment during end of life scenarios. It is unfortunate, but families often contradict explicit wishes of dying loved ones.  The severe and painful nature of pursuing a ‘do everything you can’ mentality is dire to say the least. This, to me, is pure tragedy. My goal is to open the dialogue a bit and introduce a tool to communicate the questions one needs to ask should they or a loved one be in a life threatening or life ending circumstance.  Most people WILL end up THERE and not simply die in their sleep nor arrive to a facility DOA.”

Cvlt Nation is now hosting an exclusive stream of “Tonsil” as well as a peek at the Living Will document and a more extensive statement on the song at THIS LOCATION.

Noisey/Vice previously unleashed the EP’s opening track “Non-Yielder” RIGHT HERE.

II will see release on September 29th via The Compound and DIE CHOKING, on both digital and virgin red vinyl 7” in a run of 300 copies. The band’s hyperactive, earthmoving grind/thrash resounds with an even darker powerviolence edge than their self-titled EP, with even more velocity and fury fueling the tunes. Recorded and mixed at Mark It Zero Studios with Dan O’Hare (Brutal Truth), as was its predecessor — the music harnessed in one day and the vocals in another — II was mastered by Brad Boatright at AudioSiege (Baptists, Code Orange Kids, Integrity).

Preorders for the virgin red vinyl 7” can be placed via The Compound HERE.

DIE CHOKING has booked a hometown record release show for II on October 17th with Pyrrhon, Artificial Brain and Fantasy Panther. This show will begin a week-long DIE CHOKING and Fantasy Panther tour which is partially confirmed, with several shows in the final stages of planning, and new shows are already being booked for later in the Fall.

DIE CHOKING Live:
10/17/2014 Kung Fu Necktie – Philadelphia, PA *II record release show w/ Pyrrhon, Artifical Brain, Fantasy Panther [info]
10/18/2014 The Wasteland – Kutztown, PA @ V.O.S Fest w/ Unknown To God, Empty Vessels, Fantasy Panther [info]
10/19/2014 Voodoo Brewery – Meadville, PA w/ Grin & Bear It, Fantasy Panther
10/22/2014 Quarters – Milwaukee, WI w/ Fantasy Panther
11/16/2014 Dishaus – Baltimore, MD w/ Visions Of War, Wrath Cobra, Incisor [info]

“Featuring past and present members of such family-friendly units as Total Fucking Destruction and Cop Problem comes Die Choking, a Philadelphia trio hellbent on grind obliteration with their new EP II.” – Noisey

“The great thing about this release is that you can just put this on an endless loop and you’ll never get tired of it. The grind is real, the grind is great and the grind is intense. 4/5″ – Headbang Or GTFO

CANNIBAL CORPSE: A Skeletal Domain Out TODAY On Metal Blade Records; Band Announces Special Instagram Contest + SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal Hosts A Week-Long CANNIBAL CORPSE Takeover

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Today marks of the official unveiling of CANNIBAL CORPSE’s anticipated A Skeletal Domain full-length! Out NOW via Metal Blade Records, the thirteenth full-length from the American death metal institution was produced by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver) at Audio Hammer Studios, and delivers twelve ill-omened tracks in forty-four minutes, the result of which is a colossal, confrontational, and meticulously-executed display of unparalleled brutality.

In an 8/10 review, Decibel Magazine gushes, “‘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.” Ghost Cult commends, “A Skeletal Domain has shown the world that CANNIBAL CORPSE is still on top of their death metal game and just how evil these guys can be,” while The Guardian boasts, “A cleaner, sharper production certainly gives the likes of teeth-shattering opener ‘High Velocity Impact Spatter’ and the scattershot thud of ‘Sadistic Embodiment’ a more pristine air than anything on 2012’s Torture, but it is the subtle flights of perverse structural fancy lurking within the sustained riff tirade of ‘The Murderer’s Pact’ and the gleefully unsavory ‘Asphyxiate To Resuscitate’ that make this one of CANNIBAL CORPSE’s most absorbing records in years.” In a 4/5 verdict, Sputnik Music notes, “CANNIBAL CORPSE have pushed the technicality of their songs without forgetting the brutality or speed that fans have come to expect. They’ve also added a thrash element that periodically rears its head before being murdered by another blast beat and atonal guitar solo. Together these elements have created a CANNIBAL CORPSE album that is darker and more chaotic than normal…with A Skeletal Domain there is even more of a reason for people to give CANNIBAL CORPSE a listen,” while MetalSucks adds succinctly, “[CANNIBAL CORPSE] fucking rule their fucking roost with talons of fucking steel.”

To celebrate A Skeletal Domain’s release, the band is offering listeners a chance to win a mega CANNIBAL CORPSE prize pack though mid-October. Thirty retail stores throughout the US are currently festooned with special A Skeletal Domain CD displays. Fans situated near participating locations are asked to take a photo with the display and post those photos to their Instagram accounts. Posts should include the following hash tags (#): #MetalBlade, #CannibalCorpse, #ASkeletalDomain, #(the store at which the photo was taken). Each store will have a prize package to give to one winner for the best picture, chosen by CANNIBAL CORPSE and Metal Blade Records.
The prize from each store will be:

1. The stand-up display from the store.
2. A copy of CANNIBAL CORPSE’s first-ever official authorized biography, The Bible Of Butchery, written by acclaimed metal author Joel McIver
3. A Metal Blade T-Shirt

One GRAND prize winner will receive $500 gift card from CANNIBAL CORPSE and Metal Blade. While there is no age requirement to be in the photo, the recipient of the gift card must be 18 years old or older. Winners will be chosen on October 16th, 2014, and announced shortly thereafter.
