BEHEMOTH posts “making of” for their new video, “Alas, The Lord Is Upon Me” on Metal Blade TV
Masters of blackened death metal, BEHEMOTH, just shot a new production video for the track Alas, the Lord Is Upon Me off their latest release Evangelion, which was released August 11, 2009. The video was produced and directed by Rafal Szermanowicz and Grupa 13 who also shot BEHEMOTH’s videos for Ov Fire and the Void and At the Left Hand ov God. The “making of” video for Alas, The Lord Is Upon Me is live NOW on MetalBlade.tv HERE and can also be seen below:

Vocalist and guitarist Nergal comments on the band’s upcoming video for Alas, the Lord Is Upon Me:
“First of all, we’ve overcome ourselves with this new video clip. Period. It’s something we’ve wanted to do for a very long time. Pretty much no digital intervention, no blue boxes, no fake shit this time, but great filming, good acting, and a fuckin’ awesome storyline. It’s disturbing, crazy, and evil. We’ve had over 70 people working for us on this video so we can easily say it was the biggest production so far. I’m beyond excited! Wait and see.”

Dariusz Szermanowicz of Grupa #13 comments:
“This time we decided to make something different. We’d like to make video in ‘cinematic’ style without so many VFX like in last two videos. We found great location, we had dozen of actors and extras and awesome stylizing. During the 16 hours of hard work we’ve created amazingly killer video!”

KATAKLYSM: Shoot “Push The Venom” Video

June 23rd, 2010
by EvilG

Canadian extreme metallers KATAKLYSM will commence shooting a video clip for the song “Push The Venom” next July with director Ivan Colic (TYPE O NEGATIVE, UNLEASHED, DEATHSTARS, EX DEO)  in Belgrade, Serbia. The track comes from their new album Heaven’s Venom, which will be released on August 13th in Europe and August 24th in North America. The follow-up to 2008’s Prevail, was recorded by KATAKLYSM guitarist J-F  Dagenais (MALEVOLENT CREATION, MISERY INDEX) and was mixed by Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, MNEMIC, DARK TRANQUILLITY).

“It wasn’t a hard decision for us to choose who will do the next KATAKLYSM video. As some of you know we’ve released some of the craziest videos lately with our other band EX DEO. So we decided to give KATAKLYSM a visual masterpiece as well and hire Ivan Colic once again to direct and produce the new clip for the song ‘Push The Venom’. It’s a hard hitting track with lots of anger and power and I’m positive Ivan will give it justice. We will shoot the video right after completing the EX DEO tour in Europe in mid July, so stand by for its premier in August!”

Heaven’s Venom track listing:

1. A Soulless God
2. Determined (Vows of Vengeance)
3. Faith Made of Shrapnel
4. Push the Venom
5. Hail the Renegade
6. As the Walls Collapse
7. Numb & Intoxicated
8. At the Edge of the World
9. Suicide River
10. Blind Savior

Double re-issue of Skin Chamber’s albums to be out soon

June 23rd, 2010
by EvilG
Skin Chamber "Wound / Trial" (remastered + bonus track)

Skin Chamber "Wound / Trial" (remastered + bonus track)

Skin Chamber was a short-lived industrial metal project, led by two members of the legendary experimental group Controlled Bleeding – Paul Lemos and Chris Moriarty. This oppressive music creation combined cold, raving electronics with brutal guitar riffs and sickening vocals. The duo released two full length albums – “Wound” and “Trial” – before ultimately disbanding in 1993. And today Metal Mind Productions presents an exclusive two-disc reissue which brings back a truly violent phenomenon in all its despicable glory…

The project emerged in 1991, after Controlled Bleeding had left their label WaxTrax!, which caused the group to put their artistic output on hold. The duo managed to interest Roadrunner Records in their work and this way, in 1991 they released their official debut album called “Wound”. This 13-track monstrosity delivered a powerful sonic attack, described by some as a soundtrack to a cybernetic nightmare. The band totally blurred the line between the synthetic and organic sounds, placing pounding late 80’s industrial (in the vein of Chemlab for instance) right next to slow, metallic brutality (think early Celtic Frost). It wasn’t an entirely new idea, as Godflesh paved this road long ago, but the combined talents of Moriarty and Lemos made up for an extremely intensive record. With such tracks as the upbeat “Skin Me” or the creepy, atmospheric “Slice of God” Skin Chamber managed to mark their name on the industrial map with capital letters. In 1993 the duo released their second album, entitled “Trial”. Lemos described it as a logical continuation of the band’s style: “It just kind of continues where Wound left off. It’s a lot more focused than “Wound” (…) I think the production is a lot more interesting, and within it are certain structured frameworks; there’s a lot of experimentation going on.” “Trail” was indeed a more diverse offering, presenting a very focused material filled with all the best qualities of brutally heavy industrial. The band’s love for sickening electronics was best heard in the track “Swallowing Scrap Metal (Part 5)” – a 25-minute string of uncontrolled noise, depicting all known forms of destruction. Or, as the reviewers often called it, an “electronic Armageddon”. Paul Lemos was very thrilled with his project’s output: “I think Skin Chamber is something that’s new, it has no history behind it, there’s no big catalogue of obscure releases. And so it’s kind of in a way a fresh start in a whole new orientation for us.” But in 1993 both Lemos and Moriarty decided that Controlled Bleeding should be their main focus and the spontaneously created side-project was soon shut down.

To fans of industrial all over the world, Skin Chamber was something much more than a mere project. Many scene activists point to both “Wound” and “Trial” as some the genre’s most overlooked and admired releases. With this exclusive double re-issue we give you a genuine industrial phenomenon, proving that metal and electronics can form a truly ferocious mixture.

“Wound” and “Tail” will be available in a double digipak edition limited to 2000 copies. “Wound” includes a bonus track. Digitally remastered using 24-Bit process, released on a golden disc. The release date is scheduled for 2nd August in Europe and 5th October in USA (via MVD).

SOILWORK: Join BP Boycott on Summer Tour

June 23rd, 2010
by EvilG

The Godfathers of Swedish modern metal, SOILWORK, have decided to join the BP-boycott by not using any BP or BP-affiliated products and facilities on their upcoming 2010 North American headlining tour.

“We’re outraged about BP’s obvious profit-over-safety policy leading to this terrible disaster and their extremely poor handling of the oil spill,” commented the band.”In joining the boycott and calling all our fans to do the same, we can collectively make a statement strong enough to bring this shameless, careless corporation to its knees, and to avoid such catastrophes in the future.”

Catch SOILWORK on their North American headlining tour this Summer with San Francisco Bay Area thrash legends DEATH ANGEL! Joining them will be Quebec’s tech-death masters AUGURY, Roadrunner Records recording artists MUTINY WITHIN, and pirate themed thrashers SWASHBUCKLE.

SOILWORK and DEATH ANGEL have now added a special event VIP ticket for a pre-show meet-and-greet to take place one hour before doors. Each night, fans will get to meet and greet SOILWORK and DEATH ANGEL for a special event that is being offered. Fans will also receive a customized poster to get signed by both bands. These special VIP tickets are on sale now at EnterTheVault.com .

New Jersey Folk Metal Horde WINDFAERER Post New Tracks

June 23rd, 2010
by EvilG

New Jersey folk metal horde WINDFAERER — M. Gonçalves [Vocals, Guitars, Bass], JP Andrade [Percussion] and Valèek [Violin] — recently posted two new tracks to their official MySpace page.

“These Walls (Frozen In Time)” and “This Beautiful Death” (which features bagpipe work by Sevan Kirder, formerly of Eluveitie) come off the trio’s debut full-length, Tribus. Check out the tracks here: http://www.myspace.com/windfaerer. Tribus was recorded and mixed at Frightbox Recording (Clifton, NJ) by Bobby Torres and follows the band’s two-song demo Glorybound, released last year to mass underground accolades.

Said main songwriter Goncalves of the new tunes: “Tribus is in essence a collection of everyday themes set in a time of Iberian legend. The songs touch upon rebellion against Romans in ancient Hispania and Lusitania, expansion to new lands, as well as voyaging into the unknown. I’m excited about the way everything sounds and how it all came together. I’ve had this vision for a while and it’s almost euphoric to be able to finally realize it!”

Further details on Tribus to follow shortly…

DANZIG’S DETH RED SABAOTH Album Streaming

June 23rd, 2010
by EvilG
DANZIG - DETH RED SABAOTH

DANZIG - DETH RED SABAOTH

Glenn Danzig today unleashes his first new Danzig studio album in six years, Deth Red Sabaoth, on Evilive/The End Records. The album is currently streaming on AOL Music’s Full CD Listening Party as well as on CBS Radio’s “The Street Date”, which also features an in-depth video interview with Glenn. You can purchase Deth Red Saboth physically on Amazon and digitally on Amazon MP3.

AOL Listening Party: www.music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds

CBS Radio’s “The Street Date”: www.thestreetdate.com/danzig-deth-red-sabaoth

The 11-track collection, produced, recorded and penned by Danzig, is laced with Glenn’s lycanthropic growls and blues-infected wailing. Tracks including “Black Candy,” “The Revengeful,” and the first single, “On A Wicked Night,” emit a spectral glow to rival the highest points in Danzig’s colossal discography. Part 1 of the exquisite two-part “Pyre of Souls” opens with acoustic guitar, haunting piano, Glenn’s plainsong vocal, and an almost dirge-like feel; Part II explodes with electric guitars and a driving, mesmerizing cadence.

Joining Glenn in the studio for the recording of Deth Red Sabaoth were guitarist Tommy Victor (Prong, Ministry), a Danzig cohort on and off since 1997, and drummer Johnny Kelly (Type O Negative, Seventh Void). While Kelly has toured with Glenn intermittently since 2002, this is the first time he has recorded with the band. Glenn handled the bass chores for most of the album, and played drums on “Black Candy.”

As is with all of Danzig’s releases, the CD cover artwork for Deth Red Sabaoth is provocative and ominous. The cover is an original piece created specifically for the CD by the award-winning artist Joe Chiodo whose work has graced not only Danzig’s Verotik publishing line, but the covers of numerous graphic novels and comic books, including “X-Men Unlimited.” Deth Red Sabaoth isn’t the first time one of Chiodo’s paintings has been part of a Danzig package – one of his erotic “good girl” pinups was part of 2007’s The Lost Tracks of Danzig.

Deth Red Sabaoth marks Danzig’s ninth studio venture that began back in 1988 with the Rick Rubin-produced, Platinum-certified, Danzig. A live version of his oedipal projectile “Mother,” was a major hit, and added to his iconic status that began a decade earlier when he founded the near-mythic punk band Misfits and then Samhain. Sales of ten-million albums later and having been dubbed “goth-punk’s godfather” by SPIN, Glenn Danzig is arguably the most versatile talent to emerge from hardcore’s first wave, and truly is a renaissance man – a graphic designer, photographer, comic book publisher and composer. His venture into composing and recording classical music yielded Black Aria, that debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Classical charts, and Black Aria II, that had Glenn sharing the Billboard/Classical’s Top Ten with Itzhak Perlman and Andrea Bocelli. His indelible stamp is on artists like Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails, and he has written songs that have been sung by a diverse array of artists, from Metallica to Johnny Cash.

Dead Country – Band PhotoOver his decades-long career, Glenn Danzig’s intense musical and lyrical statements have left a permanent mark on rock music, and continue to do so going into the 21st century. Glenn’s song “13,” originally written for Johnny Cash and then recorded for Glenn’s own Satan’s Child album, was the opening song in last year’s box office smash and Golden Globe winner, “The Hangover.”

Danzig – Glenn, guitarist Tommy Victor, drummer Johnny Kelly and bassist Steve Zing – also a founding member of Samhain with Glenn – are currently on a special 9-city tour to support Deth Red Sabaoth; with all current dates listed below.

DANZIG on tour:

6/24 Record Exchange, Boise, ID, 6-7:30pm , in-store signing

6/24 Knitting Factory, Boise, ID

6/25 Knitting Factory, Reno, NV

6/26 Nokia, Los Angeles, CA

6/27 Regency Ballroom, San Francisco, CA
