Photo from the crash scene

Swedish heavy metallers ENFORCER have been involved in a serious bus crash while on tour in their homeland.

The band, who are on tour in Europe supporting Australian hard rockers AIRBOURNE, were travelling from Oslo to Stockholm in a snowstorm at around 3:00am on the morning of 10th November and were near their hometown of Arvika when their vehicle skidded on ice, crossed over to the other side of the road and experienced a head-on collision with a snow-plough.

ENFORCER guitarists ADAM ZAARS and JOSEPH THOLL, bassist TOBIAS LINDQVIST and the band’s driver were battered and bruised, but miraculously all survived the crash with only minor injuries.  A county police officer at the scene said, “They had a guardian angel”.

The band’s vehicle was destroyed in the accident, but their equipment, which was in a trailer attached to the vehicle, was luckily unscathed.  ENFORCER frontman OLOF WIKSTRAND and drummer JONAS WIKSTRAND were travelling in a separate car at the time and were not involved in the crash.

The band have regretfully been forced to cancel their appearances tonight in Sweden and on the 12th and 13th November in Finland and will be using the time to recuperate and recover from the nerve-wracking incident.  They will resume the tour on 16th November in Berlin, Germany.

ENFORCER have posted the following comment:

“We’re all alive and well but we’re really sorry to cancel the gigs in Stockholm, Tampere and Helsinki.  We’re working really hard to get back on the road again soon!”

The news of the crash has also been reported on the website of Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet at http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article8099659.ab

Cradle of Filth reveals artwork for 'Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa'

Cradle of Filth - 'Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa'

Cradle of Filth have just released their new album, Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa and Paul Allender from the band will be available to discuss the album in a live web chat on Monday 15th November at 8pm (UK time).

The chat will stream on the Peaceville Records Livestream channel (www.livestream.com/peaceville) and fans will be able to submit questions using their Facebook and Twitter accounts.

The ultimate fans’ edition of the album has now arrived and shall be shipping later this week. Click here for more details including a video showing the box and its contents.

Metal Hammer have described Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa as:

“Yet another sumptuous and spectacular eruption of gothic melodrama, perverted sonic schlock and balls-out extreme metal bombast… a dazzling and dastardly display of destructive devilry.”

And Rocksound have stated that the album has:

“a masterful control over the multi-faceted Cradle of Filth sound; brutal vocal gymnastics, skull-rattling double-kicks, symphonic flourishes, dramatic narrative and balls-out axe-slinging all make their presence known, but in a manner which routinely serves to bolster the coherency of the greater whole…this fucking slays.” 9/10

THE OCEAN: Anthropocentric Out Now On Metal Blade Records Tour In Support Of Anathema To Commence Today

November 9th, 2010
by EvilG

Today Metal Blade Records unleashes Anthropocentric, the latest full-length from German atmospheric metal titans THE OCEAN, to North American shores. Anthropocentric serves as part two of the concept explored on the band’s well-received Heliocentric long player, released this past spring.

Anthropocentric‘s focus is on man and his place in the universe: At the center, as many fundamental Christians still claim today, or more likely a dust particle in its periphery? All lyrics are circle around this question and continue THE OCEAN‘s critique of Christianity.

At the base of the album are three songs with the titles “The Grand Inquisitor I, II and III.” These songs have been inspired by the chapter of the same title in Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s novel The Brothers Karamasov: A conversation between the brothers Ivan, an atheist, and Alyoscha, a monk. Ivan tells Alyoscha the story of a Second Coming of Christ in 16th century Sevilla. According to this parable, Jesus is arrested by the Catholic inquisition. The grand inquisitor who interrogates Jesus casts a new light on the legend of the temptation of Christ: He reproaches Jesus with having betrayed humanity and having deprived man of salvation by offering him freedom. The conversation between Ivan and Alyoscha mirrors, to some degree, the conversation between the grand inquisitor and Christ and raises more questions than it answers.

Commented guitarist Robin Staps: “We’re looking forward to our new album Anthropocentric being released in North America. Anthropocentric gets by without the big orchestrations of  Heliocentric — the focus is on the core of this band: drums, bass,  guitars, vocals. It is the most ‘integrated’ album we’ve done so far and everybody has been much more involved than ever before. This album is an effort that really represents this band as of  where we stand right now, fall of 2010, and we are more satisfied with it than with any other album we’ve done. Lyrically, Anthropocentric is continuing the critique of Christianity that we begun with Heliocentric.”

In related news, the band kicks off another European tour today supporting legendary UK doom/atmospheric rockers Anathema. Confirmed dates include:

11/09/2010 Rocking Chair – Vevey, Switzerland
11/10/2010 Z7 – Pratteln, Switzerland
11/11/2010 Estragon – Bologna, Italy
11/12/2010 Alpheus – Rome, Italy
11/13/2010 New Age – Treviso, Italy
11/14/2010 Magazzini Generali – Milan, Italy
11/15/2010 Boogaloo Club –  Zagreb, Croatia
11/16/2010 Listhalle – Graz, Austria
11/17/2010 Viper Room – Vienna, Austria
11/18/2010 Diesel Club – Budapest, Hungary
11/21/2010 Akademija – Belgrade, Serbia (THE OCEAN headlining show)
11/22/2010 Randall –  Bratislava, Slovakia
11/23/2010 Rock Café – Prague, Czech

DAATH Announce Special Series of Headlining Shows

DAATH

DAATH

DAATH Announce Special Series of Headlining Shows, Featured On RevolverMag.com and
Prepare For Plethora of Worldwide Touring This Fall/Winter

Extreme metal at its very best, plain and simple, is what the Atlanta based quintet DAATH delivers. The band will embark on a special series of headlining shows with Deliver Us From Evil supporting beginning on Friday, Nov. 19th. This will essentially serve as a warm up for the plethora of worldwide touring that lies ahead of them, which kicks off on Nov. 24th in North America as the group heads out on a trek with Chimaira and Impending Doom. This will lead them immediately into a lengthy European run with Fear Factory, so be sure to either see below or visit www.myspace.com/daath to view their complete touring itinerary.

Levi (guitars) states: “We’re going to be doing some headlining shows on our way to meeting up with Chimaira and Impending Doom. If you’re wondering why you should come out to that well, if you want to hear us play a longer than usual set which touches on our entire catalogue then come out. Otherwise I don’t recommend it.”

DAATH has partnered up with Revolver Magazine to present an exclusive track debut for the scathing new cut, “Double Tap Suicide,” which can be streamed now at the link below. This piece also features a candid, in-depth chat with Sean Z. (vocals) and Levi (guitars) who comes clean on his near death experience last year and what inspired him to write such an aggressive offering.
http://www.revolvermag.com/music/detail/daath/

The group’s highly anticipated third full-length, self-titled release is now available everywhere through Century Media Records. The disc is a face-melting masterpiece that was co-produced by the renowned Mark Lewis (Trivium, Devildriver) and Eyal Levi (guitars). The group is now more determined, energized and focused than ever before and expanded upon their unique, uncompromising and dynamic sound. For those previously uninitiated, feel free to head over to their MySpace page now to hear new tracks and see what they are all about.

GWAR’S “Bloody Pit of Horror” Opens To Public, Discarded Fetuses Welcome

November 9th, 2010
by EvilG
Gwar "Bloody Pit of Horror"

Gwar "Bloody Pit of Horror" - NEW ALBUM IN STORES NOW ON METAL BLADE RECORDS

GWAR’s remorseless 25th Anniversary rolls towards it’s bitter conclusion as perhaps its most significant milestone is reached–the release of the band’s self-proclaimed “heaviest yet” album, GWAR’s “Bloody Pit of Horror”, out today on Metal Blade records. After a full on media onslaught for the past four months, and now in the midst of a three-month tour, your Lords and Masters are finally allowing us to experience “The Bloody Pit of Horror” in its full form.

“This album is the follow-up to last year’s “Lust in Space”, and the capper of our 25th Anniversary Slay-a-Bration…which I am pretty sure everybody is sick of hearing about,” said GWAR lead singer and still FOX correspondent, Oderus Urungus. “This record is a throwback to an age when bands actually gave a shit about their fans and released albums pretty much once a year. When a “new album” was actually a series of original compositions instead of a bunch of regurgitated re-mixes. And the title, though stolen, is an homage to a time when horror films were made with style and care, not driven by corporation whoredom and CG trickery. It is a hateful attack upon all things alive. It is the new GWAR album.”

He continued:

“Finally the day has come…and we shall see if the human slaves of GWAR are truly worthy of that title. For this is much more than a mere album, this is a chance for the human race to break the bloody chains of bondage and join their masters, GWAR, in our quest to subject the entire universe to complete degradation. Our new album has finally been let loose upon the world and all you have to do to join our zombie army is buy the record, get your ass to a GWAR show, and join us in the “Bloody Pit of Horror”!

Want to listen to “Bloody Pit of Horror” first and then go buy it? Want to listen to the record online after you bought it already? Go to http://music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds/ and listen to a streaming version of the album as part of AOL Music’s Full Album Listening Party.

Shockhound.com is offering “Bloody Pit Of Horror” today and tomorrow only for $6.99. Head over to http://www.shockhound.com/albums/711008-gwar-mp3s-bloody-pit-of-horror and buy more copies of the album. The album is also available for $6.99 on LoudTrax.com.

Recently GWAR took to the stage on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on NBC. The band performed their new single “Zombies, March”. Check out the performance for yourself at: http://www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com

Fangoria.com premiered the brand new video from Intergalactic Shock Rockers GWAR. The video is for the song “Zombies, March!” which comes off of GWAR’s new album “Bloody Pit of Horror” which is slated for a November 9th release on Metal Blade Records. The video was shot on location at The National in Richmond, VA by acclaimed Fangoria Director Dave McKendry. Check out the video at FANGORIA.com.

GWAR’s latest masterpiece “Bloody Pit of Horror” is in stores on now and you can also purchase it on the official GWAR page on the Metal Blade Records website at: http://www.metalblade.com/gwar. The landing page includes all current tour dates, GWAR footage from BOTH Gwar.tv and MetalBlade.tv, and pre-orders for “Bloody Pit of Horror” on CD, a GWAR t-shirt, or the ultimate “Bloody Pit” package that includes the CD, the GWAR t-shirt, and a 12×12 autographed cover print!

November 9th, 2010
by EvilG

NACHTMYSTIUM Release Video for “Every Last Drop”; Available Now Via Stereogum
Banned by Major Outlets – View the Eerie, Uncensored Clip Now!

NACHTMYSTIUM has become one of the most notorious, shocking artists to come along in quite some time. The band has rocketed to the forefront of the metal scene since they inked with Century Media a few years ago and since released two of the genre’s most respected albums of all time. Now NACHTMYSTIUM is back with a new video for their song “Every Last Drop” which is sure to keep the controversy coming.

NACHTMYSTIUM has now teamed with Stereogum/Haunting the Chapel to unveil this eerie clip. Directed by Seldon Hunt and Jimmy Hubbard and starring NACHTMYSTIUM main man Blake Judd, Bruce Lamont (Yakuza) and Aubrey Smith, the clip takes you through a psychotic spiral of drug addiction, death and despair. The clip was shot in Brooklyn, NY this past summer with edits by Alan Dubin (Khanate, Gnaw), make up by Brandy McDonald and Chris Polinski acting as Director of Photography.

Check out the eerie clip now at Stereogum but be forewarned, the video is graphic. Also, be sure to pick up a copy of ‘Addicts: Black Meddle Pt. II’, out now via Century Media.

PERIPHERY and VEIL OF MAYA Kick Off A Massive North American Fall Tour With Darkest Hour This Week
; Open Guestlist and Interview Availability For All Shows

November 9th, 2010
by EvilG

Very rarely does a band come along that just defies the boundaries of conventionality, but the experimental, progressive metal outfit PERIPHERY have done just that and have blazed a trail of originality that has sent a shockwave throughout the metal world. This Maryland based six-piece are one of the few who actually feature three guitar players and are led by the virtuoso Misha Mansoor, whose unique ability and style has him quickly being mentioned as one of the most gifted new players to come along in years. The group’s highly acclaimed debut, self-titled album is a work of sheer precision packaged with a propulsive blend of melody, intensity and undeniable songwriting prowess.

PERIPHERY will be embarking on a massive North American tour alongside Darkest Hour, labelmates Veil of Maya and Revocation this week, so be sure to either see below or head over now to www.myspace.com/periphery to view their entire tour schedule. We have an open guestlist to all of these shows, so if you are interested in checking it out let me know asap and I can put you down for a +1. These are two of our most promising up and coming bands so hopefully you can make it out to see them. In person interviews with both bands are also available if you are interested.

Mansoor checks in with his thoughts on the upcoming tour and future plans: “Hey everyone, it’s been an amazing whirlwind of a year for PERIPHERY and there are no signs of slowing down anytime soon. We are currently preparing for a long tour with Darkest Hour, Veil of Maya and Revocation, which is going to be a blast and we can’t wait to get back out there to play for everyone. Also, we encourage everyone to come and meet us at our merch booth after each and every show to come and hang with us. We love hearing feedback from our fans and getting a chance to meet new people.

“We also will have a fresh new, longer setlist with a BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW SONG and a few fun surprises just for this tour.
