LYNCH MOB Embarks On USA Summer Tour

June 25th, 2010
by EvilG

HOLLYWOOD, CA (June 25, 2010) – Lynch Mob is getting ready to embark on a summer tour in support of their current release “Smoke and Mirrors” on Frontiers Records. The band line-up for this tour consists of George Lynch (shred master), Oni Logan (vox), Michael Devin (bassologist) and Brian Tichy (time-keeper).

After seventeen long years singer Oni Logan and guitar wizard George Lynch found their way back together and again show their amazing abilities in some killer new Hard Rock songs.” I would say this new record “Smoke and Mirrors”, is the record we should have put out as a follow up to “Wicked Sensation”…better late than never I guess…”, says Lynch presenting the new record.

Lynch Mob was formed by George Lynch, one of the few genuine guitar heroes of substance to emerge from the Los Angeles scene, after DOKKEN split up in 1989. The band’s first album” Wicked Sensation” went on to sell over 500,000 units in the US and featured the talents of singer

Oni Logan, Anthony Esposito on bass and another former DOKKEN member Mick Brown on drums. After a tour in support of Queensryche, Logan opted out, with Robert Mason taking his place on the follow up self titled release. However Lynch and Brown eventually returned to Dokken releasing 2 studio albums until he left again in late 1997 putting together a several new incarnations of Lynch Mob and exploring new sounds with different projects.

COLOSSUS TO HEADLINE ‘FLAWLESS VICTORY’ TOUR THIS SUMMER IN SUPPORT OF DRUNK ON BLOOD EP

June 24th, 2010
by EvilG

In their early careers, members of COLOSSUS were in several formidable punk rock acts, but thankfully came to their senses and embraced their irrepressible youthful metal roots.  Now, armed with guitars and beer they are storming across the tundra of central North Carolina to conquer the world. COLOSSUS is setting out on the road on July 8th, and will continue through July until the 24th.

Raleigh, North Carolina’s COLOSSUS sound as if they were actually taking part in the original NWOBHM scene alongside Saxon, Diamond Head, Iron Maiden and Angel Witch in 1982, but cosmically slipped through a wormhole, winding up in 2010. Their new Tribunal Records EP, Drunk on Blood, spiritedly follows on the heels of their debut album, And the Rift of the Pan-Dimensional Under-Gods, and only further expands on their love of classic heavy metal, fantasy, folklore, zombies, science fiction and ultimately laying waste to any and all who catch their enthusiastic and sweat-filled live shows.  Drunk on Blood is for people who like to party and remember what it was like to make music for fun.  When listening to Drunk on Blood your knobs most definitely should be cranked to 11.

See COLOSSUS on tour this summer!

DEATH: Previously Unseen Behind-The-Scenes Footage From ‘Lack Of Comprehension’ Video Shoot

June 24th, 2010
by EvilG
Death - Human

Death - Human

Previously unreleased behind-the-scenes footage from the video shoot for the song “Lack Of Comprehension” from DEATH‘s seminal 1991 album “Human” can be viewed below. The three-minute clip was newly compiled and edited from the raw footage shot in September 1991 by DEATH mainman Chuck Schuldiner‘s former manager and current legal representative, Eric Greif.

Relapse Records recently announced a partnership with Perseverance Holdings Ltd. and the Schuldiner family to reissue the legendary catalog of heavy metal luminary Chuck Schuldiner and his bands DEATH, CONTROL DENIED and MANTAS.

Chuck Schuldiner‘s DEATH, one of the most important and influential metal bands of all-time, will see the first official digital releases of its legendary albums “Scream Bloody Gore”, “Leprosy”, “Spiritual Healing”, “Human”, “Individual Thought Patterns” and “The Sound Of Perseverance” tomorrow, May 11 at this location. These digital releases will come two days before Chuck Schuldiner would have celebrated his 43rd birthday.

Chuck Schuldiner passed away on December 13, 2001 at age 34 after a battle with pontine glioma, a rare type of brain tumor.

Relapse will also reissue an expanded version of the classic debut album, “The Fragile Art Of Existence”, from Schuldiner‘s progressive heavy metal band CONTROL DENIED in late 2010 as well as the first-ever collection by his pre-DEATH project MANTAS. The expanded version of “The Fragile Art Of Existence” will include bonus tracks, extra band photography, expanded art and packaging and more. Details on both releases are forthcoming.

Long-range plans include the completion and official release of the final CONTROL DENIED album “When Man and Machine Collide”. Recorded over 10 years ago at Morrisound Studios with producer Jim Morris, “When Man and Machine Collide” was tracked by Schuldiner but left incomplete upon Chuck‘s passing. A range of officially licensed DEATH, CONTROL DENIED, and MANTAS merchandise has also been issued here. Many classic album art designs will follow in the coming months, making some highly sought-after designs available officially for the first time in years.

Stay tuned to EmptyWords.org, the official DEATH / CONTROL DENIED / Chuck Schuldiner web site, and Relapse.com for more information.

Guitar World has released its second TAB book, featuring the music of DEATH.

“Death: The Deluxe Guitar and Bass Tablature Collection” is the first song transcription book based on the DEATH catalog. Created with the endorsement of Chuck Schuldiner‘s family, it features full transcriptions — including guitar, bass and lyrics — of eight classic DEATH songs, such as “Pull the Plug”, “Zombie Ritual”, “Flesh and the Power It Holds” and many others! Plus, “Death: The Deluxe Guitar and Bass Tablature Collection” includes a life- and career-spanning biography on Chuck Schuldiner, death metal’s pioneer and spiritual guide.

Transcriptions include:

* Pull the Plug”, as heard on “Leprosy”
* The Philosopher”, as heard on “Individual Thought Patterns”
* Crystal Mountain”, as heard on “Symbolic”
* Flesh and the Power It Holds”, as heard on “The Sound of Perseverance”
* Scavenger of Human Sorrow”, as heard on “The Sound of Perseverance”
* Zombie Ritual”, as heard on “Scream Bloody Gore”
* Spiritual Healing”, as heard on “Spiritual Healing”
* Together as One”, as heard on “Human”

OCEANO HEADS INTO THE STUDIO WITH ZUESS TO RECORD NEW ALBUM, “CONTAGION”

June 24th, 2010
by EvilG

OCEANO TO CO-HEADLINE THE OVER THE LIMIT TOUR

OCEANO TO CO-HEADLINE THE OVER THE LIMIT TOUR

Over a year after the release of their 2009 Billboard-charting debut DEPTHS and countless tours later, Chicago deathcore heavyweights, OCEANO have begun recording their highly anticipated followup album to be released later this year. Entitled CONTAGION, the album promises to take the band’s music to explosive new heights thanks to the production of Zuess (MUNICIPAL WASTE, THE ACACIA STRAIN, HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL) and the addition of 2 new guitarists who have quickly become acquainted with the continual misery that has become OCEANO‘s trademark.

OCEANO frontman, Adam Warren chimes in from the studio with a brief update:

“As of last night we finished up drum tracking! Danny’s a little monster and flew through everything in a 2 1/2 days. Now we’re onto guitars today. We’re excited to begin and work with Zeuss as we are looking forward to getting his input on what we have come up with. We are all confident he’s going to help further creation of Contagion to be even more infectious to all of your ears. LET IT SPREAD!”

To kick off the start of CONTAGION‘s recording process, OCEANO have posted the premiere episode of OCEANO TV on their brand new official YouTube page. Styled similarly to a 90’s-style multi-camera sitcom, this episode stars drummer, Daniel Terchin. Here, he gives fans a tour of his drum kit, pwns n00bs on Call of Duty and sneaks a peek at his tracking sessions. Watch the video at http://www.youtube.com/OceanoTV

CONTAGION will arrive later this year.

OCEANO will soon be hitting the road once again as part of the Over The Limit Tour. Ever the road warriors, this will not be a typical tour for OCEANO. It will mark their first major North American co-headlining tour alongside AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK. The tour will also act as a prelude to the release of the band’s forthcoming sophomore album, CONTAGION. Those attending the Over The Limit Tour will be among the first anywhere to hear some of the crushing new material from the album.

Joining headliners OCEANO and AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK on the bill will be ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS, THE TONY DANZA TAPDANCE EXTRAVAGANZA, THICK AS BLOOD, BURNING THE MASSES, CIRCLE OF CONTEMPT, and BLINDWITNESS, with SON OF AURELIUS and THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE on select dates.

Metal Blade Records inks worldwide deal with FLESHWROUGHT featuring Navene Koperweis formerly of Animosity and Jonny Davy of Job for a Cowboy

June 24th, 2010
by EvilG

Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce the addition of experimental death metal band FLESHWROUGHT to its family. FLESHWROUGHT features Navene Koperweis (former drummer of Bay area grind band Animosity, currently in Animals As Leaders) and Jonny Davy (vocalist of Arizona’s Job for a Cowboy); Navene performing all instruments on the band’s debut album Dementia/Dyslexia with Jonny Davy handling lyrics and vocals.

“I’m truly amazed that a small project I started in my bedroom at my mom’s house has become something worthy of a Metal Blade release. What more could I ask for? I couldn’t be more proud and honored!” Navene Koperweis

“This record has been complete for an extremely long time. Navene and myself are extremely pumped to finally have the beast released.” Jonny Davy

Dementia/Dyslexia was finished by June 2009 and was recorded at Navene’s studio, Death Midi Soundlab, in San Francisco. Navene played all of the instruments, did all the tracking, mixing, and editing, with mastering handled by Dustin Miller at Audio Aggregate Recordings in Des Moines Iowa. In terms of what FLESHWROUGHT hopes people will take away from listening to Dementia/Dyslexia, Navene personally hopes it is inspiration and a connection with the music, much in the way he has felt about those who have inspired him through his journey as a musician and lover of music.

FLESHWROUGHT’s debut full-length album Dementia/Dyslexia will be available everywhere August 3rd. Stay tuned to MetalBlade.com and FLESHWROUGHT’s MySpace page for the first single, album artwork, and preorder information.

Fleshwrought – Dementia/Dyslexia
1. Mental Illness
2. Inner Thoughts
3. Programming the Herds
4. Weeping Hallucinations
5. Conceptual Flesh
6. State of Desolation
7. Dyslexic Interlude
8. Self-Destructive Loathing
9. Relevant Intoxication
10. Final Nausea

About the band:
FLESHWROUGHT was born in 2003 when death/grind drummer Navene Kopperweis, who is best known for playing in the now defunct San Francisco Bay area grind band Animosity, paired up with Nic Gauthier and made a demo at their friend’s house. A live lineup formed shortly after the demo was recorded and consisted of Nic, Navene and fellow Animosity band mate Chase Fraser. FLESHWROUGHT played a few local shows in Santa Cruz California (where the band called home), one of which was a New Year’s house party with Decrepit Birth. As time went on, the guys jammed less and less due to Animosity’s high frequency tour schedule and Navene moving an hour and a half away to San Francisco. However, Navene’s writing for FLESHWROUGHT never slowed down and in fact his productivity was increasing exponentially as Navene had acquired amazing musical tools such as 7-string guitars, computers, and recording software; all components necessary to make his own album.

While Animosity was on the “Steers and Beers” tour supporting the band’s Blackmarket Activities debut Empires, the band played a show in Phoenix AZ with a local band called JOB FOR A COWBOY. During JFAC’s set Navene thought to himself “dang! That singer is brutal!” All of the guys became great friends and even went on to tour the United States and Europe together. “I knew Jonny Davy was the only guy for my CD,” comments Navene. So at this point, Navene and Jonny decided to join forces began working hard to perfect the band’s debut full-length album titled Dementia/Dyslexia.

Initial tracking for Dementia/Dyslexia began in November 2008. Due to Navene living in San Francisco, Jonny living in Phoenix, and both musicians having very busy schedules, FLESHWROUGHT did not take the typical approach to writing their debut full-length album. “I would send Jonny songs when they were complete on my end. Jonny only sent me back one song with vocals before coming to track the vocals for the entire CD at my studio. I was blown away!” divulges Navene. In terms of the lyrical content on Dementia/Dyslexia there is a very direct theme throughout the entire album. Vocalist Jonny Davy comments:

“Before even thinking about writing anything in particular when it comes to the lyrical content of Dementia/Dyslexia I sat and impatiently waited for every song to be entirely complete. Once done I literally sat and analyzed every note, every beat and every nanosecond of the album until it drove me to the brink of insanity. Personally, I’ve gone through a bizarre year and the album triggered a lot of inner anxiety. At first concentrative listen to the record you realize that it is strenuous to decode and comprehend. The record illustrates every human emotion and buildup response to the starting point of dementia, becoming utterly crazed and just all around unbalanced: Wallowing in depression, alcoholism, anger, frustration, to even self-destruction.”

Influences for FLESHWROUGHT span from the obvious like death metal to the not so easily assumed influences like electronic, progressive, and experimental styles of music, including bands. Some of these influences include bands like Necrophagist, Decrepit Birth, Origin, Mats/Morgan Band, Special Defects, Frank Zappa, Squarepusher, Corneilius, and Siriusmo. Definitely all over the musical spectrum! Navene comments:

“I’m not that 17 year old kid who exclusively listens to death metal anymore. I’m 25 years old and have gone through many phases throughout my musical quest. In turn, my influences always seem to shine through and manifest in my music because the one rule I have followed would be that there are no rules. In conclusion I’m as honored and proud as a parent to an honor roll student to present Fleshwrought’s Dementia/Dyslexia to the world. Jonny and I hope you enjoy.” Navene Kopperweis

FLESHWROUGHT is:
Navene Kopperweis – guitars, drums, bass
Jonny Davy – vocals

The set also includes a previously unreleased recording – “Love Hurts” – which will be the lead-off single from Triumph’s ‘Greatest Hits: Remixed.’

“We have been planning this release forever,” says bassist Mike Levine. “For years, Triumph fans have been demanding that we give them a fresh greatest hits package and they are going to love this one.”

Also included in the set is a DVD, mixed in 5.1 audio, that features eleven promo and live videos in widescreen (plus additional unreleased videos for “Child of the City,” “Blinding Light Show,” and “Love Hurts,” and footage of the group’s 2008 induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame).

The deluxe two-disc package is housed in a six-panel digi pak – including a 20-page color booklet, complete with liner notes, lyrics, and chockfull of vintage photos.

Whether you’re a long-time Triumph fanatic or a new convert, you have never heard the group as crystal clear and loud n’ proud as you will throughout ‘Greatest Hits: Remixed.’ “’Greatest Hits: Remixed’ rocks like no other Triumph set,” declares drummer Gil Moore. “This is the definitive Triumph collector’s edition.”

SKELETONWITCH Comments On Tour-Packed Summer

June 24th, 2010
by EvilG

Band To Tour Canada with HIGH ON FIRE, Appear on OZZFEST & HEAVY MTL, and Return To Europe; Completes New Video.

Athens, Ohio’s blackened thrash warlords, SKELETONWITCH, who are no strangers to the road, have quite the action packed summer lined up. The band will start July by doing some of their own shows en route to Vancouver, BC, where they’ll meet up with HIGH ON FIRE for a cross Canadian trek which will culminate with the band appearing at the HEAVY MTL (http://www.heavymtl.com/en/) festival in Montreal, along with SLAYER, ALICE COOPER, MEGADETH, MASTODON and more. The band will then head out with OZZFEST where they’ll be appearing on the second stage along with former tour partners GOATWHORE and SAVIOURS and other acts including BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and KINGDOM OF SORROW. Check out their appearance on Ozzfest TV HERE. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxV6mDtmppE) Then, the Athenian madmen will head over to Europe, where they’ll be headlinging the “EUROPEAN BANGOVER” Tour.

Guitarist Scott Hedrick commented on the band’s plans; “Just when you thought Skeletonwitch couldn’t get any heavier… we’re going to eat a metric ton of bread, cheese, and beer in Europe!! Fuck yes! We’re heading across the pond w/ Warbringer and are being joined by Angelus Apatrida. It’ll be a true “European Bangover”

Of course, that is directly following the juggernaut of American heavy music festivals, Ozzfest, which we are proud to be a part of. The opportunity to play alongside greats such as Ozzy and Rob Halford is a bit of a mindfuck for us. It’s going to be a blast.

Since I seem to be working in reverse…….We’re kicking off our summer touring in July with High on Fire, Russian Circles, and Priestess in Canada. It’s going to be a lot of metal, a lot of traveling, and a lot of drinking, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Black t-shirt, white van. Heavy metal on the road.

Thanks to everyone for the support! Come out and see us. We’ll party!” Read the rest of this entry »

GODFLESH TO HEADLINE SUPERSONIC FESTIVAL

June 24th, 2010
by EvilG
Supersonic Festival takes place from the 22nd to the 24th October, 2010 at the Custard Factory in Birmingham

Supersonic Festival takes place from the 22nd to the 24th October, 2010 at the Custard Factory in Birmingham

Reunited British industrial metal pioneers GODFLESH have been confirmed as one of the headlining acts for the 2010 edition of Supersonic Festival.

GODFLESH will be returning to their roots for the highly acclaimed Supersonic Festival, which is held in the band’s hometown of Birmingham, England.  This special headlining appearance will be GODFLESH’s first UK show in over ten years.

GODFLESH founding member JUSTIN BROADRICK comments:

“We cannot even recall specifically the first Birmingham Godflesh show.  Oddly, we think it was supporting Suicide in 1988, just after the release of our first Mini LP on Swordfish, the record label of Birmingham’s best record shop.  So it’s only natural that the first Godflesh UK show in its original form in over 10 years, comes home to its birthplace, and for whom better than Supersonic, the organisation responsible for keeping Birmingham on the map with underground music, be it metal or otherwise.  It is with great pleasure that Godflesh returns to its roots.”

Supersonic Festival takes place from the 22nd to the 24th October, 2010 at the Custard Factory in Birmingham.

Supersonic Festival is organised by Capsule, which also runs ‘Home of Metal’, a project celebrating heavy metal music from the West Midlands, including such legendary bands as BLACK SABBATH, JUDAS PRIEST, GODFLESH and NAPALM DEATH.  Fans are needed to contribute old photos, flyers and more to the ‘Home of Metal’ archive.  To find out more and to upload items from your personal collection, head to http://www.homeofmetal.com

GODFLESH’s seminal 1989 album STREETCLEANER has been remastered and reissued in a special deluxe CD digipak, including a bonus disc featuring 12 previously unreleased live tracks, remixes and demos.  Get the album in Europe at http://earache.com/webstore/index.php/cPath/667_670_54
