HAVOK’s David Sanchez (guitar/vocals) suffers arm injury; band forced to cancel select dates on current North American tour

September 29th, 2014
by EvilG

Due to unforeseen circumstances, HAVOK is forced to cancel select dates on their current North American tour. David Sanchez (guitars/vocals) comments: “Due to injury, we have been forced to cancel a few shows on our current tour with CROWBAR, REVOCATON, FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY, and ARMED FOR APOCALYPSE.  We plan to rejoin the tour in California in early October.  

While hiking in Boulder, Colorado, I took a pretty nasty fall and ended up shattering my left wrist.  Since I’m currently unable to play guitar, our friend Dan Gargiulo from REVOCATION has offered his 6-string services and will be laying down the riffage for the rest of our stint in the USA.  I will still be doing vocals on the remainder of the upcoming shows and I cannot wait to get back on the road!

I’d like to apologize to anyone that was looking forward to seeing HAVOK in these coming days.  We will definitely make it up to you.  In times like these, one must remember the ancient American proverb, ‘Shit happens.’  See you on the road!!

One last thing! Here is some good news for a change. Pete’s mom is making a full recovery from her recent accident and that means Pete Webber will be back behind the kit rejoining the tour in California.  We want to thank Marshall Wieczorek from WRETCHED for stepping in on drums and doing an awesome job on such short notice.”

RIGOR MORTIS Premieres New Song on Noisey

September 26th, 2014
by Celtic Bob

prdm-1

Twenty-Three years after their last record, and nineteen months after the tragic loss of guitarist Mike Scaccia, DFW TX Speed/Thrash Metal pioneers, RIGOR MORTIS, will release their fourth and final studio album – Slaves to the Grave (Due October 7th via Rigor Mortis Records). This marks the bands first studio album in 23 years, and the first with the classic original line up (Mike Scaccia – guitar, Casey Orr – Bass, Bruce Corbitt – Vocals, and Harden Harrison on drums), since their 1988 eponymous debut album.

Slaves to the Grave is available for pre-order HERE.

Today the band premieres the third blistering track from Slaves to the Grave.  Noisey is hosting an exclusive premiere of the song “Ancient Horror”.  Check out an exclusive interview with bassist Casey Orr and listen to the song HERE.

The first song made available from Slaves to the Grave for streaming was “Flesh for Flies” check it out HERE.  The second offering “Poltergeist” is streaming HERE.

Two special shows in support of the album have been announced including a CD Release Party and an appearance at the Housecore Horror Film Fest. The surviving members of Rigor Mortis will be performing as Wizards of Gore at both events.

RIGOR MORTIS RECORD RELEASE PARTY

https://www.facebook.com/events/1434344633505185/

Saturday Sept 27th – Curtain Club- Dallas, TX
Featuring Dead Horse, Wizards of Gore (RIGOR MORTIS), Dead Earth Politics, and more tba. The new RIGOR MORTIS record will be available for purchase at this show.

WIZARDS OF GORE AT HOUSECORE HORROR FILM FEST
Oct. 23rd – 26th – Emo’s – Austin, TX

https://www.facebook.com/HousecoreHorrorFilmFestival?fref=ts

The second annual event boasts underground and classic horror screenings and merch, full reunion of cast from the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre 1 and 2, as well as a great line up of bands like Superjoint Ritual, GWAR, Danzig, Samhain, Wizards Of Gore (RIGOR MORTIS), Warbeast, Portal, Randy Blythe, Satyricon, Eyehategod, Cattle Decapitation, Unearth, Acid Witch, and many more

Recorded less than a year before Mike’s passing, Slaves To The Grave was to going to herald the band’s long overdue comeback. In February 2012, RIGOR MORTIS entered 13th Planet Studios in El Paso, and recorded the 10 tracks that would become STTG. The artwork was done Michael Broom.

Without question, this record contains some of Mike’s finest work. In his zone and with no restraints, he delivered some absolutely stellar performances. His solo at the end of “Blood Bath”, for instance, is absolutely breathtaking, exposing more heart and soul than precious few of his contemporaries possess.

The subject matter hasn’t strayed much. Twisted tales of horror and woe, monsters and madmen, warfare and plague abound! The tracks are fast and heavy as one would expect, but there is also a maturity and growth that only comes with age and experience. Musically, STTG draws from a legacy of brutal influence. The Speed and Thrash Metal that RIGOR MORTIS cut their teeth on is evident throughout the record in the intensity and velocity of tracks like “Flesh For Flies”, but also, one could argue, are influences such as Italian horror soundtracks by Goblin, as heard on the outro solo of “Poltergeist”. While STTG was very much a group effort, and all four came together like a fist to crush all doubt, It has to be said, of course, that the highlight of this record, and indeed RIGOR MORTIS as a whole musically, is Mike Scacciaʼs incredible guitar playing. His freakish speed picking and beautiful sense of melody is mesmerizing. His solos are stupefying. Mike’s style was much closer to Paganini, than to say, Mustaine or Dimebag. He was unique.

RIGOR MORTIS dedicates this record to Mike Scaccia 1965-2012.

Slaves to the Grave Track Listing:

1. Poltergeist
2. Rain of Ruin
3. Flesh for Flies
4. The Infected
5. Blood Bath
6. Ancient Horror
7. Fragrance of Corpse
8. Curse of the Draugr
9. Sacramentum Gladiatorum
10. Ludus Magnus

Produced by Mike Scaccia and RIGOR MORTIS
