MACABRE To Self-Release Picture Disc LP; North American Tour Approaches

July 9th, 2011

Murder Metal mongers MACABRE are preparing to self-release a 12″ picture disc LP version of their recent full-length, Grim Scary Tales, via their own Decomposed Records. This gory platter of splatter bears the bold, Scott Jackson-crafted front cover art to the album on the A-side, and a portrait of the infamous MACABRE trio, armed for battle, as always, on the B-side. Order the Grim Scary Tales picture disc and Lizzie Borden shirt now for a special preorder price here.

 

The release of the LP comes just in time for MACABRE‘s next leg of their multi-stage Grim Scary Tales Tour in support of the album, as they prepare to hit the road in two weeks, once again with Exhumed, Cephalic Carnage and Withered. The gore tour gets going on July 24th — with MACABRE headlining the Central Illinois Metalfest, joined by Nachtmystium, Nunslaughter Embalmer and tons more — the tour lineup them moving on to invade sectors of the Midwest and Western North America.

MACABRE‘s first album in eight long years, Grim Scary Tales was released earlier this year on the band’s Decomposed Records, with North American distro by Willowtip and European distribution by Hammerheart. The album delivers the madness and musicianship MACABRE fans have come to love over the past quarter of a century, cleverly combining nursery rhyme sing-along quirkiness with ultra-tight, high-speed, gore/grind/death ingenuity. MACABRE have cleverly devised a “story book of murder” with this album, as Grim Scary Tales tracing back to the earliest recorded and most infamous mass killers.

The band’s turbulent new full-length Grim Scary Tales presents the classic MACABRE style fans have come to expect, cleverly combining nursery rhyme sing-along quirkiness with ultra-tight, high-speed, gore/grind/death ingenuity. MACABRE have cleverly devised a “story book of murder” with this album, as Grim Scary Tales tracing back to the earliest recorded and most infamous mass killers.

 

 

“…this odd, transgressive, audacious record will be like manna from the drill-hole in the head of a Dahmer acid zombie for those who can abide a healthy dose of absurdity in their brutality. 8/10″ – Decibel

 

“Every bit the raucous, gore-grind slab of still-quivering meat fans have come to expect from the band, Grim Scary Tales is another one in the win column for this now legendary trio. ” – MetalSucks

 

“…a mixed bag, offering some straight up blasters, semi-technical death (these guys are underrated musicians, IMO), “true metal” ballads, chicken-pickin’, poetry and those demented carnival sing-songs that the band likes to dabble in. 8.5/10″ – Hellbound

 

“Blending elements of death metal, thrash, nursery rhymes, country rock, circus music, chamber music, a weird old town crier and even some world music themes Macabre takes the listener on a twisted sonic journey on every track.” – Metal Army America

 

“…their approach is utterly distinctive, with snappy, unfailingly energetic songs, based around either crisp machine gun death metal riffs or crunching, hooky mid-tempo grooves.” – Metal Reviews

 

“…the technical synchronicity that the band is capable of is nothing less than awe inspiring, and new fans just discovering Macabre with this disc might not fully appreciate their capability. 4/5″ – Metal Rules

MACABRE Celebrate 25 Murderous Years With Anticipated Album; Brand New Track Available Today Via Noiscreep

January 27th, 2011
Macabre - Grim Scary Tales

Macabre - Grim Scary Tales

Earsplit PR is incredibly proud to join forces with Chicago’s infamous murder metal trio MACABRE, as the fiends prepare to eviscerate the public with their first album in eight long years!

Recorded over the course of the band’s 25th anniversary, the highly anticipated 14-track platter of splatter Grim Scary Tales presents the classic MACABRE style fans have come to bloodthirstily expect, cleverly combining nursery rhyme sing-along quirkiness with ultra-tight, high-speed, gore/grind/death ingenuity. Their first full length since 2003’s blistering Murder Metal, this time MACABRE have cleverly devised a “story book of murder,” as Grim Scary Tales traces some of the most infamous serial killers and mass murderers. From the beginning or recorded mass killers, the album progresses through the annals of the world’s creepiest ghouls, including Locusta, Vlad Tepes, Gilles Garnier, Elizabeth Bathory, Mary Ann Cotton, the Bender Family, Lizzie Borden, Karl Grossmann and more. Recorded and mixed at The Ensomberoom by Geoff Montgomery (The Chasm, Coffinworm, Shub Niggurath, Couldron), this crushing album also bears original artwork and layout crafted by Scott Jackson of Monsterman Graphics and Rock N Roll Comics notoriety, perfectly visualizing the album’s gory nature. View the cover art, live footage and more at this location.

Today, Noisecreep.com is hosting a premiere of the track “The Big Bad Wolf” from Grim Scary Tales. Check it out here.

Keeping a band together for 25 years is a monumental thing for any group of musicians, but to keep a trio together without a lineup change in a quarter of a century as MACABRE have is nearly unheard of. Yet as time goes on, MACABRE remain in their initial lineup, as always consisting of Corporate Death (lead vocals, guitar), Dennis The Menace (drums) and Nefarious (bass, vocals).

To be released on the band’s own Decomposed Records as always, Grim Scary Tales is directly licensed for North American release on February 8th via Willowtip Records, and in Europe January 31st on Hammerheart Records. Promos of the album will be available immediately to North American writers, as well as interviews with the members of MACABRE over the coming weeks.

Grim Scary Tales Track Listing:

1. Locusta
2. Nero’s Inferno
3. The Black Knight
4. Dracula
5. The Big Bad Wolf
6. Countess Bathory (Venom cover)
7. Burke and Hare
8. Mary Ann
9. The Bloody Benders
10. Lizzie Borden
11. The Ripper Tramp From France
12. Bella the Butcher
13. The Kiss of Death
14. The Sweet Tender Meat Vendor
