(New York, NY) — Veteran metal act DARKEST HOUR has officially announced their new record entitled “The Human Romance” to be released on February 22, 2011. This is the bands seventh full length and their debut for new label eOne Music.

Renowned SOILWORK guitarist Peter Wichers, along with the band, produced the record himself.

The new single “Savor The Kill” can be heard exclusively on Noisecreep.com here [http://aol.it/fh0Nl5]

“This time around, the DARKEST HOUR songs were composed a bit differently than was the case in the past.”
Guitarist and founding member Mike Schleibaum explains, “we have been working on these tunes ever since we left the studio last April. ‘The Eternal Return’ was written during a very dark, bleak time for the band and I think that record matches that in both tone and character. Our vision was for it to be an in your-face, no-frills aggressive assault. The new material shares in that aggression and pushes DARKEST HOUR beyond the unknown.”

The band has also released another behind the scenes studio video which can be seen here: [http://bit.ly/hkDWK8]

Track Listing:

1. Terra Nocturnus
2. The World Engulfed In Flames
3. Savor The Kill
4. Man And Swine
5. Love As A Weapon
6. Your Every Day Disaster
7. Violent By Nature
8. Purgatory
9. Severed Separates
10. Wound
11. Terra Solaris
12. Beyond The Life You Know

The band recently completed an Australian tour with CARFINEX and will continue their 15 Year Anniversary “Legacy” tour in Europe through the middle of February. The band’s next tour has them headlining the “ATTICUS METAL TOUR” along side BORN OF OSIRIS.  “Atticus Metal” promises to be one of the most exciting tours for the first half of 2011 and is a must see for all metal fans alike. For additional information feel free to head over to http://www.facebook.com/atticusmetaltour.

THE MEADS OF ASPHODEL’s Acclaimed New Album Out Now

January 13th, 2011
by EvilG

This week, Candlelight Records USA is proud to finally unleash the brilliant new full-length from England’s unique blackened genre-benders THE MEADS OF ASPHODEL, which has been bathed in praise by metal media outlets worldwide in recent months.

Officially on the streets as of  January 11th, the band’s latest masterpiece of bizarre and infectious blend of theatrics and musical bastardization The Murder of Jesus The Jew, is ready for the North American public’s consumption. The album details the historical life of Jesus (Yeshua), the Jewish rabbi who was slaughtered on a tree by the Romans on a cold winter day 2000 years ago, and thereafter his people condemned to be pariahs of the earth due to Christian hatred. It is ironic that the Jewish roots of the Christian church have been erased and the blame of their man-god’s death cruelly placed upon a people already broken by the yoke of Roman imperialism. Truth is often blinded by faith, none more so than the story of Jesus and his maligned people.

Life In The Shadows is a 35-minute documentary on THE MEADS OF ASPHODEL where Metatron explains his controversial lyrics and ideas on religion, J.D Tait guides us around the Meads’ Bridge Gate Studios and Urakbarameel vents his annoyance at being labeled a ‘Battle Metal’ band. View the three-part movie at this location for a look inside the incredible concepts behind the new album.

About Don Jamieson:

“He’s a sarcastic, caustic rib-splitter who can wind up any audience and splatter them hysterically” – The Village Voice

Don is currently co-hosting VH1 Classic’s hit heavy metal talk show series, “That Metal Show.” The program is a round-table talk show where legends of rock hang out and discuss their past and current projects in front of a live studio audience full of metal maniacs. Rolling Stone Magazine just dubbed “That Metal Show” one of the 50 Best Reasons to Watch TV!

Amongst his many accomplishments, comedian Don Jamieson’s proudest moment is becoming an “Emmy Award-Winner” for his work on HBO’s “Inside the NFL.” Don and long-time comedy partner, Jim Florentine, lent their brand of humor to the popular sports show; writing, producing and performing sports-themed comedy sketches.

The two have also collaborated on the hidden-camera DVD and Comedy Central web series, “Meet the Creeps” as well as a series of prank call CD’s, “Terrorizing Telemarketers,” which get a lot of airplay on the Howard Stern Radio Show. He is also a joke writer for the country’s best celebrity roaster, Lisa Lampanelli and has lent his voice to MTV2’s “Crank Yankers.”

Don’s stand-up act brings his everyday take on life, the hip, the cool and the tragically sublime into the spotlight. Besides performing at clubs in New York City, Don tears it up at clubs and theatres all over the country. For the last four years, he has been the regular opener for Andrew Dice Clay. His reputation as one of New York City’s top comics was cemented when he was asked to perform live on ABC’s Good Morning America.

Don started his career as one of the young and talented comedy minds at MTV helping to launch the careers of comics like Jon Stewart, Kevin James, Pauly Shore (sorry) and Tom Green, but unbeknownst to many, Don was spending his nights on the local comedy scene developing his own comic style.

Making the transition from comedian to television host isn’t easy for most. Don has hosted his own series, OLN’s “Beach Ambush,” and is currently in production for the SEVENTH season of VH1 Classic’s, “That Metal Show.”

NEURAXIS Announce Track Listing for “Asylon”; Vocalist Alex Leblanc Comments on Album Title

January 13th, 2011
by EvilG
Neuraxis - Asylon

Neuraxis - Asylon

Montreal-based tech death metallers, NEURAXIS, have unveiled the track listing for their upcoming album, “Asylon,” which will be released in North America on February 15th, 2011.

The track, “Asylum,” debuted last week and can still be heard at Prosthetic Records’ webstore, where the official pre-order is now running.

The track listing is:

1. Reptile
2. Asylum
3. Savior and Destroyer
4. By The Flesh
5. Sinister
6. Trauma
7. Resilience
8. Purity
9. V
10. Left To Devour

Vocalist Alex Leblanc commented on the decision to title the album, “Asylon:” “’Asylum’ is the first song I wrote for the album.  It opened up a ton of ideas for all the other ones.  After I was done writing all the lyrics, I was looking for the word asylum in Latin.  I realized it did not exist but it did in ancient Greek.  The word ‘asylon’ had a deeper meaning so it was more fitting to use it to globalize the whole mood/concept of the album.”

“Asylon” was recorded at Wildsound Studio with producer Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy, The Last Felony, The Agonist). The cover art was created by artist Dennis Sibeijn of Damnengine Artwork, who worked with the band on their previous album, “The Thin Line Between,” as well with Job For A Cowboy, Chimaira and more.
NEURAXIS will support death metal masters Deicide in February and March and legendary extreme metal act, Sepultura in April and May.

Bang Tango – Re-issues out soon

January 13th, 2011
by EvilG

It’s hard not to think about lost opportunities when referring to Bang Tango. Perhaps one of the most original and eclectic members of the glam/funk scene, this group had it all: great songs, clever image and significant sound. Unfortunately, they never managed to achieve the success they deserved. However, the fans have not forgotten about them and after many tribulations, Bang Tango have returned in not one but two incarnations: one with the original singer and another featuring the original musicians. Now, thanks to the exclusive re-issues of “Psycho Cafe”, “Dancin’ on Coals” and “Ain’t No Jive… Live”, music lovers all around the world may once again return to the early 1990’s.

Bang Tango was formed in 1987 in Los Angeles, California. The original line-up consisted of vocalist Joe LeSte, guitarists Kyle Stevens and Mark Knight, bassist Kyle Kyle (born Kyle Keiderling) and drummer Tigg Ketler. The group was lucky enough to sign to MCA Records without even releasing a single demo. In 1989, they recorded their first album “Psycho Cafe”, which immediately caught the attention of rock enthusiasts, both locally and nationally. The LP was definitely ahead of its time, delivering great metal riffs, funky bass lines, intense drumming and LeSte’s wide vocal range, easily mixing glam, hard rock and funk. “Psycho Cafe” spawned a couple of hits, such as “Breaking Up a Heart of Stone” and one of the band’s most famous tracks – “Someone Like You”.

In 1991, Bang Tango returned with their sophomore album “Dancin’ on Coals”. The LP brought a significant change in the group’s music, pushing it more towards funk rock in the vein of Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their style was still a bit difficult to classify but such tracks as “Dressed Up Vamp” and “Soul To Soul” brought nothing less than sheer musical genius.

1992 brought the band’s second live material (after “Live Injection” from 1989). The 5-track EP entitled “Ain’t No Jive… Live” showcased Bang Tango at the peak of their talent. All of the songs included in this material sound as good as on the albums, though they are played faster and with much more energy. The group played some of their best known hits such as “Someone Like You”, “Dancin’ On Coals” and “Attack of Life”, as well as a premiere track for that time (“20th Century Boy”) and the ballad “Midnight Strikes”, with LeSte’s stellar performance.

In 1994, Bang Tango released their third LP called “Love After Death”. Unfortunately, the album was not as successful as the band had hoped and, in 1995, the guys decided to call it quits. In the following year, the group reunited just to disband again in 1998. Another reunion took place in 1999, when original members Joe LeSte and Kyle Kyle teamed up with bassist Mattie B. (ex-Altar Boys) for a national tour, which proved to be a great success. A new album was in the making but, eventually, it never got released. In 2002, LeSte reformed the band again, this time with a completely new line-up. The group is still actively touring. In 2010, the original members of Bang Tango: Tigg Ketler, Mark Knight and Kyle Kyle decided to bring back yet another version of the legendary band.

The exclusive re-releases of Bang Tango’s “Psycho Cafe”, “Dancin’ on Coals” and “Ain’t No Jive… Live” bring back the very beginnings of this fantastic band. For all fans of glam rock, hard rock or funk rock – this is a trip you can’t afford to miss! The albums will be available in a new digipak edition each limited to 2000 copies. Re-release of “Dancin’ On Coals” includes 2 bonus tracks. Metal Mind Productions set the release date for 31st January 2011.

The group is comprised of Leo Curley (vocals,guitar), Bob Horvath (bass), and Gregory Nash (drums). The formation of Addicted to Pain can be linked to an earlier group called Eyesore (with now Shadows Fall drummer Jason Bittner). Years and several bands later Horvath and Leo hooked up with Nash and Addicted To Pain were born.

GWAR re-opens “The Bloody Pit of Horror” temporarily – new tour dates announced

Gwar "Bloody Pit of Horror"



After a brief return home to their hulking Antarctic stronghold, intergalactic murder-machines GWAR are returning to the U.S. for one final spurt of touring before doing whatever the hell they are up to after that. The Lords and Masters of this world apparently tired of abusing penguins and are ready to return to the surface world and begin the homestretch towards the conclusion of their seemingly endless 25th Anniversary “Slay-a-Bration”, which has now grown to encompass their 26th year of rebirth on Earth from the icy prison that for centuries had been their fate. When will GWAR stop celebrating their 25th anniversary? Only one warty front-thing can say for certain. Oderus was reached for comment at his command bunker located deep beneath the GWAR Fortress, where he took a break from his undead re-creation of the Battle of Stalingrad to chime in about the campaign of continuing idiocy and destruction GWAR plans on schleping to you, the faithful human scum.

“It’s seems we were about 8000 zombies short of our goal, which was to fill every hull of our Skumdog War Fleet with blood-mad slavering zombie shock-soldiers. So we decided to come back to the U.S., re-open the Bloody Pit, and mutate some more of our helpless followers. Then we shall invade the very heart of the galaxy with our infected hatred and lust for war against all things alive. That and party.”

The new GWAR dates are as follows:

Thu/Feb-17 Raleigh, NC @ Lincoln Theatre

Fri/Feb-18 Allentown PA @ Crocodile Rock

Sat/Feb-19 Millvale PA @ Mr. Smalls Theatre

Sun/Feb-20 Brooklyn, NY @ Music Hall of Williamsburg

Mon/Feb-21 Syracuse, NY @ Westcott Theater

Tue/Feb-22 Burlington, VT @ Higher Ground

Wed/Feb-23 Providence, RI @ Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel

Thu/Feb-24 Sayreville, NJ @ Starland Ballroom

Fri/Feb-25 Richmond, VA @ The National

In other GWAR related news, Metal Blade Records has announced the release dates for the vinyl versions of both GWAR’s “Lust and Space” and “Bloody Pit of Horror”.

“Lust in Space” is being released on January 18 and it is a picture disc with a gatefold sleeve.

“Bloody Pit of Horror” will be released on February 15 and it is a picture disc with a die cut gatefold


Who would have guessed that everyone’s favorite bellicose bass player Beefcake the Mighty had a soft side? When he’s not out singing about or actually beating things to death, the rotund one has volunteered for Bloody Disgusting.com to offer his advice to the lovelorn. Check out Beefcake’s first column at: http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/music/1312

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! (While supplies last or until GWAR decides to start using the prints as rolling papers…whichever comes first)

Singapore’s #1 grindcore export, WORMROT have released a brand new track from their forthcoming album, DIRGE. The track, entitled “Manipulation,” is a minute-long burst of ferocity, terror and outright aggression. It hits all of the marks that have endeared WORMROT to the worldwide metal underground.

“Manipulation,” along with the rest of DIRGE was completed less than 10 days ago. Drums were completed on January 4th, guitars, vocals, mixing and mastering were completed in various days ending on January 10th. In many ways, “Manipulation” is as raw as WORMROT gets — a hell of a way to raise the already high expectations for DIRGE.

Check out “Manipulation,” the debut track from WORMROT‘s forthcoming album, DIRGE, as well as a  first look at the album’s cover art, created by Andrei Bouzikov (MUNICIPAL WASTE, SKELETONWITCH, CANNABIS CORPSE) below:

DIRGE arrives in North America on May 3rd.

The rumors are true! WORMROT will be grinding up the audience at the Scion Rock Fest. It takes place in Pomona, CA on March 5th at the Fox Theater and The Glass House.. While the wait is on to announce whom WORMROT will be playing with, we can also now confirm that Scion will not be their only US gig. The band has a full scale US tour that will take WORMROT from coast to coast in March and April, including a stop at SXSW. Dates will be announced soon.

WORMROT‘s debut album, ABUSE, is available now worldwide featuring 23 tracks of pure grindcore. Get the album now in North America along with several exclusive mercy and vinyl combos at http://earache.com/uswebstore/index.php/cPath/667_674_733.

is also available now on iTunes with 34 (yes, 34!) bonus tracks: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/abuse/id363581828
