IGNOMINIOUS INCARCERATION POSTS UPDATE FOLLOWING VAN CRASH

September 16th, 2010
by EvilG

British death metal act IGNOMINIOUS INCARCERATION, who are currently working on the follow-up to their 2009 debut album, OF WINTER BORN, were recently forced to cancel much of their European tour after the band’s tour van crashed.

The band was driving through France on their way back to the UK, when the van carrying members of both IGNOMINIOUS INCARCERATION and labelmates AND HELL FOLLOWED WITH was involved in a crash on the motorway.  Thankfully no one was seriously injured, though members were left with broken bones, cuts and bruises.

Almost a month on from the crash, IGNOMINIOUS INCARCERATION bassist CHRIS BALL discusses the band’s recovery and progress on the new album:

“After nearly a month after our crash, we’re all doing well – we’re using this time to finish writing, spend time with our family and friends and get a butt-load of gaming in, haha!  My knee still can’t bend that much but it shouldn’t take long for it to get back to normal and Sam’s foot is returning to its normal self!

“In terms of recording and writing, we’ve pretty much finished writing the album and it’s sounding massive!  This one will blow ‘Of Winter Born’ out of the water, so everyone needs to hold onto their hats for it as we are sure it will not disappoint.  We should be hitting the studio soon and we are definitely aching to show everyone what we’ve done!

“We will not be playing any shows for the remainder of this year as we really want to concentrate on making our new release perfect and worth the extended wait for!  We are sure we’ll sort a home show for a come-back, if not a few around the UK!  Just keep your eyes peeled on our Facebook page or Twitter for announcements.

“Keep partying hard!”

IGNOMINIOUS INCARCERATION’s debut album, OF WINTER BORN, is available now worldwide.  Get your copy in Europe at http://earache.com/webstore/index.php/cPath/667_670_133 or in North America at http://earache.com/uswebstore/index.php/cPath/667_670_133

PRO-PAIN: New North American Release Date Confirmed

September 16th, 2010
by EvilG

A new North American release date for the new full-length from PRO-PAIN has been set for September 28th, via Regain Records. The powerful new album, entitled Absolute Power, is the thirteenth studio full-length from these American crossover champions.

Absolute Power explores several sides to the tried-and-true American unit’s somewhat patented sound. While a vast chunk of the album immediately recalls standard PRO-PAIN NYC-style metal/hardcore crossover attacks, many elements at play on Absolute Power infiltrate totally new ground for the band. Recorded at Little Creek Studio in Gelterkinden, Switzerland, the record features ten thunderous anthems that bridge the gap between the hardcore club and the rock arena.
Absolute Power Track Listing:
01. Unrestrained
02. Destroy The Enemy
03. Stand My Ground [featuring Schmier from Destruction]
04. Road To Nowhere
05. AWOL
06. Hell On Earth
07. Divided We Stand
08. Gone Rogue (I Apologize)
09. Rise Of The Antichrist
10. Hate Coalition

Formed by vocalist/bassist Gary Meskil (ex-Crumbsuckers), New York-based PRO-PAIN have over the years benefited from substantial support from an ever-growing and loyal fanbase as well as metal media and radio. Today, now joined by long term guitarist Tom Klimchuck, as well as newer members Marshall Stephens on rhythm guitar and Ricky Halverson (ex-Narcotic Self, Cellador, Stephen Pearcy’s RATT) on drums, the band’s worldwide catalog sales approaches one million units.   Promos of Absolute Power are available now, as well as interviews with PRO-PAIN. In North America, contact an Earsplit rep with all promo and requests of the band…. you’ll find us in the circle pit.

GOATWHORE lined up for three amazing tours after an incredible run on 2010’s Ozzfest! Band to enter the studio in early 2011!

September 16th, 2010
by EvilG

After a very successful run on this summer’s Ozzfest, New Orleans, Louisiana’s sons of American no-frills black metal meets death and roll GOATWHORE will be once again hitting the road in support of their current album CARVING OUT THE EYES OF GOD, which came out in June 2009. Starting on September 22 in Raleigh, NC at Volume 11, GOATWHORE will be joining label mates The Absence for 6 dates and will head straight into the start of The Black Dahlia Murder tour that kicks off on September 28 in Columbus OH at Skully’s. Shortly after the tour alongside fellow label mates The Black Dahlia Murder, GOATWHORE will be ending a very successful year of touring by joining Watain and Black Anvil for a tour that takes the band across the US throughout the month of November. Shortly after GOATWHORE finishes up their run with Watain and Black Anvil, the band will be entering the studio to begin recording their 5th full-length album, and 3rd for Metal Blade Records. More details on the studio and the new material will be made available over the coming months on Metal Blade’s and GOATWHORE’s sites.

“Just when one tour comes to an end another few step into place. We have, as always, put an extreme effort on touring for each release we put out. Our most current release, CARVING OUT THE EYES OF GOD, is no exception and has brought us on many great touring adventures. Just returning home from Ozzfest 2010 we find ourselves locking in the rest of the year with two excellent tours. First, alongside our good friends in The Black Dahlia Murder, then a final end of the year outing with the black art of Watain. The Ozzfest experience was a great thing to be a part of. Playing and hanging with good friends and the bonus of watching some legendary musicians that have influenced us from our earlier metal years. We are looking forward to finishing up the year and getting things rolling for the next release. Hope to see everyone on the road in the next couple of months” comments vocalist Ben Falgoust.

Drummer Zack Simmons adds; “this has been a great time touring for this record. We’ve been very fortunate to been included on a lot of good tours. It was an honor to be included on Ozzfest once again. We are very confident and determined to deliver another killer record and tour our asses off again, as we always do! Stay fuck!!! Stay thirsty, my friends! P.S. Be careful where you store your sewing needles. You never know what can happen…”

WARRANT wine out NOW!

WARRANT wine out NOW!

Warrant now has it’s official red wine called what else?

Cherry Pie Red!!!

The label follows the rock theme that fans will love and the wine in the bottle… a real wine drinker will rock out to the taste!

Warrant’s 2007 Cherry Pie Red
Napa Valley

As with the strum of the electric guitar and the bang of a big bass drum within a rock anthem melody, this sexy wine strokes balance and resonates with flavors of cherries, raspberries and mocha. The notes finish with innuendo of espresso and tobacco. Great acidity pairs it well with foods such as spaghetti, beef, and spicy dishes. Also pairs well with classic rock, good times & great friends. $39.99 (US)

With more than 15 million albums sold, 7 Grammy nominations, the helming of 5 major motion pictures and dozens of music videos under his belt, Rob Zombie is a force to be reckoned with in today’s entertainment landscape.  Zombie’s unique meld of horror and hard rock has influenced his sound as a musician, and more recently his vision as a director and writer.

PRIMAL FEAR Vocalist Ralf Scheepers Further Comments on Guitarist Henny Wolter’s Departure

September 15th, 2010
by EvilG
RALF SCHEEPERS

RALF SCHEEPERS

Earlier today, Henny Wolter elaborated to Metal-Rules.com on why he quit Primal Fear. His posting can be read here. After this became public, we were contacted by Ralf Scheepers with a further explanation on what went down. His comments are below:

“It is pretty unfair to complain about a 2 man enterprise although he has been invited to join the company. He didn’t do it though due to the lack of having the balls to take the financial risk. All in all it was only a matter of earning money for Henny in the end anyway, that’s why his statement about PF not being a band anymore is simply the biggest joke on earth! We have even canceled shows because one guy -> “Henny” didn’t want to do them as of getting less fee as usual. Not to mention that the 2 man enterprise wouldn’t have received any money at all for those shows.

Stop telling lies and shame on you Henny!

With best regards,
Ralf Scheepers”

Guitarist Henny Wolter Further Elaborates on His Departure from Primal Fear

September 15th, 2010
by EvilG
Guitarist Henny Wolter

Guitarist Henny Wolter

Guitarist Henny Wolter, recently dropped the bombshell that he had quit Primal Fear. In a blog posting earlier this week he said “it didn’t feel like a band anymore.”  Metal-Rules.com caught up with Henny to get an elaboration and to get a little more detail on his new band, Nitrogods.

On the topic of leaving Primal Fear Henny said: “I am kind of bummed myself, because I liked the musical side of it. But unfortunately that was pushed aside by too many other annoying things. As much as I appreciate playing to a larger audience and recording and working on a pretty high professional level, I am not willing to put up with the way they run their business anymore. Most people and fans know, and it is rather obvious that PF is a 2 man enterprise. I even guess there´s nothing wrong with that for some people and I certainly knew what I was in for when I got into it the second time. But lately it´s gotten to a point at which I don´t wanna serve as a writer and performer no more. I have always been a band-guy and that´s the way I like to work. It used to be that way in my former bands like Thunderhead and I really missed that in PF.

Henny is not playing with the band on their upcoming tour dates that start in a few days commenting “No. I won´t be playing for them anymore at all.

Henny is also no longer in Sinner. Speculation is that he no longer saw eye to eye with band leader Mat Sinner to which Henny commented “I am not too keen on having to deal with Mat and probably vice versa :)“.

With the announcement of his departure from Primal Fear, Henny announced the formation of a new band Nitrogods. He further commented that “Nitrogods is a three-piece and it will be much more Rock´n Roll than PF. Rather in the vein of Thunderhead or early (Eddie Clark, Philthy Taylor era) Motörhead.

Hope to see all my fans and friends on tour soon.

Extreme metal at its very best, plain and simple, is what the Atlanta based quintet DAATH delivers. The group’s highly anticipated third full-length release is going to be self-titled and is set for an Oct. 25th release. The disc is a face melting masterpiece that was co-produced by the renowned Mark Lewis (Trivium, Devildriver) and Eyal Levi (guitars). Stay tuned in the coming weeks for a big North American touring announcement.

The stunning new DAATH track, “Indestructible Overdose,” is now available at the link below.
