VEHEMENCE

Phoenix, Arizona-based death metal quintet, VEHEMENCE, returns to full-time deployment in 2015 with with tour dates and their anxiously awaited first new album in over a decade, Forward Without Motion. The outfit’s first new album since Metal Blade Records’ 2004-released Helping The World To See, VEHEMENCE comes storming back to the death metal circuit with a crushing new album which will surely see the band regaining their traction within the scene after their time off the grid. Forward Without Motion is the culmination of years of hard work and the collective desire to write the best songs and capture the best performances. Working on the songs off and on for several years between 2007 and 2011, VEHEMENCE began a methodical, painstaking tracking process for the new record between 2012 and 2014, the album’s guitars, bass, and vocals being recorded at the home studios of guitarists Bjorn Dannov and Kyle Moeller, with the drums being recorded at Villain Studios in Phoenix. When listening to Forward Without Motion, one will discover the refreshing sounds of a band creatively reborn and seasoned by experience. The album flows with a relentless, throat grabbing energy that never flags and begs for repeated spins. This cohesive power is nowhere more apparent than in the strength of the instrumental and vocal performances, which slash and hammer their way out of the speakers with a passion rarely found in the cold, mostly lifeless corpses that are most modern death metal recordings. With the underground death metal scene now extremely primed for the re-arrival of VEHEMENCE, Forward Without Motion will be released through Battleground records on October 23rd. The record will be issued on 180-gram black vinyl 2xLP in a gatefold package with a free download, limited to 300 copies, as well as a digipak CD version and all digital platforms. The band and label have proudly issued Forward Without Motion’s track listing and cover art by Hal Rotter/Rotting Graphics (Atriarch, Inherit Disease, Barghest). www.facebook.com/vehemenceofficial @vehemenceofficial www.twitter.com/vehemenceaz www.youtube.com/vehemenceband www.facebook.com/battlegroundrecords www.battlegroundrnr.com www.twitter.com/battlegroundrnr

ACRANIA -

This Summer, the world will experience the vicious death metal/deathcore of London-based abusers, ACRANIA, as the trio releases their debut full-length via California’s Unique Leader Records. The politically charged ACRANIA has spread their message through several independent recordings since their 2012 inception. Their debut split with Blue Waffle and “A Trophy of Corporate Disfigurement” single, both released in their first year as a band, followed by their The Beginning Of The End EP released last year have helped the band forge a devout fanbase of pit-seeking followers. Having already toured with various acts around Europe including Cerebral Bore and Warpath, and with upcoming shows booked alongside Thy Art Is Murder, Blood Red Throne and many more, ACRANIA will continue to devour their way through the scene and spread their message of unrelenting hostility through their blistering mix of brutality, slams and blastbeats. Earlier this year, ACRANIA recorded their debut full-length, Totalitarian Dystopia, with Stu McKay at Studio 6 in London. Following a mixing/mastering job by Chris Foster and having artwork crafted by Par Olofsson, Totalitarian Dystopia boasts a thirty-six minute maelstrom of sonic devastation through ten new tales of pure intolerance for humankind’s downfalls. The record includes guest appearances from Tom Barber of Lorna Shore, Mendel of Aborted and Jamie Hanks of I Declare War, and promises to engulf an entire new legion of worldwide death fanatics upon its release on August 19th. Totalitarian Dystopia Track Listing: 1. Hollow 2. Festering With Dishonesty 3. Totalitarian Dystopia 4. Servants Of Hypocrisy 5. Survival Sequence 6. A Gluttonous Abomination 7. Susceptible To Retinal Reprogrammability 8. Lobotomise, Dehumanise, Negate. [LDN] 9. Messiah Of Manipulation 10.

ALTERBEAST -

Sacramento death metal ogres, ALTERBEAST, will release their forthcoming new full-length, Immortal, via Unique Leader Records next month. Meticulously assembled in several locals throughout 2013, with guitars and bass recorded at Augmented Audio in Los Angeles by former The Black Dahlia Murder bassist Ryan “Bart” Williams, vocals arranged at Mayhemeness Studios in Sacramento by Bob Swanson (Rings Of Saturn) and drums tracked at Castle Ultimate Studios with Zack Ohren (Light This City, All Shall Perish, First Blood, Cattle Decapitation, Warbringer et al), who also mixed and mastered the release, Immortal vows to supply some of the most dynamic, instrumentally adept and plainly scathing material of the year. Formed in 2011 under the working title Gary Busey Amber Alert (GBAA), ALTERBEAST combines the teachings of The Black Dahlia Murder, Necrophagist and Spawn of Possession with the classic death metal mastery of band’s like Dissection and Morbid Angel into an irate expulsion of audio wreckage. After a year of dedicated song-crafting, ALTERBEAST unleashed their first demo in 2012 and officially waged war on the populace with numerous shows opening for Deicide, Dying Fetus, Testament, Revocation, Exhumed, Severed Savior and many others. Their crushing live assaults combined with a DIY ethos quickly earned them a revered place within the local death metal community. Immortal will rear its head upon the masses on March 18, 2014 via Unique Leader. http://www.facebook.com/ALTERBEASTofficial http://www.youtube.com/ALTERBEASTofficial http://uniqueleader.com

FALLUJAH -

Unique Leader Records is proud to announce the completion and pending release of the new full-length from San Francisco-based cutting-edge atmospheric death metal outfit, FALLUJAH. Having just wrapped-up production on their highly anticipated follow up to 2011’s The Harvest Wombs, FALLUJAH will bombard the masses in 2014 with what is surely one of the freshest and most emotive metal albums to be released in years, entitled The Flesh Prevails. The album was mixed, mastered and engineered by Zach Ohren (Animosity, Suffocation, All Shall Perish) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, California over the course of a few months and features guest appearances from Christian Muenzner (Obscura, Necrophagist) and the voice of Roniit Alkayam. The cover artwork was a collaborative effort between Poland’s Tomasz Alen Kopera and the band’s vocalist, Alex Hofmann. The Flesh Prevails is set to be released during FALLUJAH’s participation in this year’s crushing Summer Slaughter Tour alongside Morbid Angel, Dying Fetus, The Faceless, Goatwhore and more. A confirmed street date, track listing, and deafening serenades from this brutalizing exhibition will be released in the coming days. Formed in the San Fran Bay Area in 2007, FALLUJAH has since displayed a rugged work ethic, investing countless weeks on the road in North America and internationally. The band’s commitment to crafting forward thinking music has helped them build their own diehard fanbase from the ground-up through several releases, including 2009’s Leper Colony EP, 2011’s The Harvest Wombs debut LP, and most recently, their 2013 -Nomadic- EP. Now, with their newest work, The Flesh Prevails, FALLUJAH has ultimately paved the way for a new melodic and atmospheric perspective on death metal.

5. EYEHATEGOD - "Robitussin And Rejection"

  • Published: 2014-04-01T19:51:21Z

EYEHATEGOD -

Following countless years of personal hardships, studio disasters and times of music industry indecision, New Orleans’ own EYEHATEGOD, with much relief and excitement, are proud to announce the release of their brand new full-length! Entirely assembled and financed by the band, the self-titled, eleven-track long player will be released on May 27th by their partners at Housecore Records in North America, May 26th by Century Media in Europe, Australia and New Zealand and May 21st by Daymare in Japan. Comments vocalist Mike IX Williams, “I have to say I don’t believe we’ve lost nary a step in the creation of this album and we think these newer songs are a killer combination of classic EYEHATEGOD mixed along with our best production, mixing, engineering and songwriting in thirteen years. The main and total tragic break in the chain, was obviously last year’s death of our great friend and drummer Joey LaCaze. However, his original drum tracks made it onto the final master recordings and we’re fucking psyched about that… As for working with Housecore, it was a no-brainer. We’ve always been a family, and will always remain a family.” Adds Housecore founder Philip H. Anselmo, “Being a part of the new EHG record is a dream come true. I’ve known, supported and loved the guys for almost as long as I’ve been playing music myself, and it is our pleasure here at The Housecore Records Compound to have ‘em aboard. And I gotta mention, having heard the new record, this is the EYEHATEGOD record every true fan has been waiting for…. Hail!” As a band that helped create a genre as well as equate a city with a sound, EYEHATEGOD has always remained humble anytime words like “legend” were thrown around to describe them. The thing with legends is that they grow stronger in time and over the years, word of mouth has been kind to the band. EYEHATEGOD is bigger now than they ever have been in their twenty-five plus years as a band. Pretty impressive seeing as they haven’t released a full-length album in almost fifteen years. Most people who know the band have a story to tell or they heard a story about the guys. Whether it was them playing nothing but feedback to a bewildered White Zombie crowd during their opening stint for the arena metal band in the mid-nineties, being banned from a certain venue for attacking a promoter with a barstool or cleaning out entire small towns of their drug supply, these stories spread throughout the metal community over the years, usually through a game of one-up-manship, establishing them as one of the most notorious bands around. Certainly not the first band to be surrounded by myth and lore, EYEHATEGOD’s staying and growing power ultimately comes from the music. No one riffs like Jimmy Bower and Brian Patton. Drummer Joey LaCaze grooved and held it together with numerous bass players throughout the years, doing so impeccably with Gary Mader over the past decade. Singer Mike IX Williams has always been able to encapsulate the ruins of life through his lyrics and vocal delivery. All combined, the music is the most genuine, distressing cacophony of sound around. “Black Sabbath mixed with Black Flag with a little bit of Skynyrd and the element of blues thrown in there,” Bower once said of the band’s sound. In 2014 that style might sound somewhat commonplace. In 1988 it most definitely was not. The band’s second album, 1993’s Take As Needed For Pain is the pinnacle album that other bands of this genre to this day try to reach. Today, EYEHATEGOD sounds as fresh and innovative as ever. When the band released its first new track in over a decade, “New Orleans Is The New Vietnam,” it was clear that nothing about the band had changed. They were touring more than ever and used that time and energy to work on an album’s worth of songs. At the end of 2012 they were ready. The recording process for Eyehategod started with producer Billy Anderson back in the fold (he recorded 1996’s Dopesick). The session saw both producer and band not quite on the same page and at the end, the album was unfinished. A few months later, the band reconvened at longtime friend Phil Anselmo’s home studio with producer Stephen Berrigan (Down). Both Anselmo and Berrigan helped draw out the missing pieces to one of underground metal’s most anticipated albums in years. An unexpected tragedy occurred shortly upon returning home from a recent five-week European tour in the Fall of 2013: Joey LaCaze passed away due to respiratory failure. An outpouring of condolences and tributes spread online. Enough can’t be said of the loss felt by the band, family and friends. Fortunately, LaCaze’s drum tracks were captured by Anderson and appear on the album, creating the definitive tribute for the member of the band who encapsulated best just what EYEHATEGOD was all about; seriously not taking yourself too seriously. New Orleans native, Aaron Hill (Mountain Of Wizard, Missing Monuments), took over for Joseph LaCaze without missing a beat, both figuratively and literally. The band hit the road after wrapping up the record and plan to embark upon their most exhaustive touring schedule to date.

6. SOREPTION - "Engineering The Void" (featuring guest vocals by Trevor Strnad)

SOREPTION -

On their latest full-length, Engineering The Void, Swedish death metal militia, SOREPTION, vomit forth a a multi-layered symphony of surgically accurate riff sequences, maniacal pace fluctuations, plenty of head-jarring rhythms and sprawling intervals of quietude, the six-plus minute opus is an all-consuming lesson in flawlessly assembled brutality. Engineering The Void was recorded by Tommy Rehn from symphonic black metal collective Angtoria at Ninetone Studios and serves as the follow-up to SOREPTION’s debut full-length, Deterioration Of Minds. Applauded by Underrated Reviews for its, “superior sense of rhythm and razor-sharp precision that will appeal to fans of bands such as Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, Dying Fetus and The Faceless,” the record reaped critical accolades both Statside and abroad. Noted No Clean Singing, “lots of bands are cranking our modern, technical death metal, attempting to out-do each other (and their forebearers like Necrophagist and Decapitated) with ever more intense instrumental pyrotechnics. Most of them fail at what they’re attempting, or at least fail to create anything you’d want to hear more than once. But SOREPTION have managed to tread this path successfully, not only through the precision of their playing but through the competence of their song-writing. The music has got grooves and compulsive rhythms — and those way-cool contrasting guitar leads. It just makes you want to get up and fucking mosh and headbang and break shit!,” while Ultimate Guitar opined, “If there was one band…which had to be picked as the representative for what tech death is turning into, this would be it…” Added Metal Observer, “…this album kicked my balls hard on the first listen, completely tore them off during the second, made clam chowder soup with them on its third play-through, and threw said scolding chowder in my face during the fourth. Suffice to say, this album was quite the tasty shock.” SOREPTION will unleash Engineering The Void to the masses this February 18, 2014 followed by a reissue of Deterioration Of Minds, both via Unique Leader Records. “The new SOREPTION album is going to rip faces. I mean hot damn! Those riffs! The Swedes in SOREPTION are up there with Obscura, Gorod and Psycroptic at the upper echelon of the crowded tech-death pack, no doubt. Can’t wait to headbang furiously to this the minute it comes out!” – MetalSucks http://www.facebook.com/soreption http://www.uniqueleader.com http://www.facebook.com/uniqueleaderrecords

8. IRIS DIVINE "The Everlasting Sea"

IRIS DIVINE

Northern Virginia-based trio, IRIS DIVINE, has joined The Laser’s Edge family by signing with the label’s progressive metal subdivision, Sensory Records, for the late Spring release of their impending debut album, Karma Sown. With a brand of emotional, progressive hard rock/metal not quite like anything else out there, IRIS DIVINE is musically rooted in the raw energy and rhythmic interplay of Rush and King's X. Fans of dark, guitar-driven rock bands from Alice In Chains, Deftones to the contemporary metal riffing of Lamb of God and Pantera, will connect to the heavy core of the band’s modern sound. Add to that progressive complexity and moody synths inspired by Dream Theater and Porcupine Tree, and a liberal dose of memorable hooks and melodies, to understand some elements of the band’s sound. And yet, the band has a distinct identity, not quite sounding like any of the aforementioned bands, and with an emotional urgency that pulls subtly from alternative and other influences. Hailing from just outside of the Washington, DC area, IRIS DIVINE has opened for such acts as Katatonia, Orphaned Land, Fates Warning, and Periphery, channeling its studio output into intense, passionate live performances that balance precision with in-the-moment catharsis. Often called a "musician's band," the band time and again earned the respect of its regional peers, and could well become new faces gaining prominence among the musician community on a wider scale. Following their previously-released 2011 double EP, Convergence, and a demo in 2013, IRIS DIVINE's glorious debut full-length, Karma Sown, is a triumph of a debut album, immediate and memorable but revealing layers and depth upon repeated listens. The record was produced by IRIS DIVINE, engineered by Drew Mazurek and Farhad Hossain, mixed by Drew Mazurek, and mastered by Brian J. Anthony, and its cover art conceived by Kris Combs and executed by Visual Decay. With the potential to make a connection to a wide range of prog, rock and metal nationally and internationally, the band looks to 2015 and beyond to bring a new and powerful voice to fans around the world. Sensory Records will release Karma Sown worldwide on CD and digitally on March 31st, 2015. http://www.irisdivine.bandcamp.com http://www.facebook.com/irisdivine http://www.lasersedgegroup.com/labels/sensory-records http://www.facebook.com/TheLasersEdge http://twitter.com/thelasersedge

POISON IDEA

POISON IDEA, one of the most infamous and instantly recognizable names in the legacy of hardcore punk, is preparing to release their first new album since 2006’s Latest Will and Testament. Southern Lord Recordings, responsible for reissuing the band’s back-catalog in recent years, are the ones irresponsible enough to bring to you Confuse & Conquer, now confirmed for US release on April 7th, 2015. Soaking up respect from generations of hardcore punks and dishing none out, the dastardly denizens of mid-paced punk shred are in trademark form on Confuse & Conquer. With longstanding members Jerry A (vocals), Eric “The Vegetable” Olsen (guitar) and Chris “Spider” Carey (bass) alloyed by the fresh faces of Nathan “Skinny” Richardson (drums) and Brandon Bentley (guitar), POISON IDEA’s brand new full-length proves itself both identifiable and rewarding to listeners who have encountered them at any point from their 1980 birth onwards. Inventive beyond its steadfast roots, yet altogether as blunt as a stagediver’s knee hurtling towards your face, Confuse & Conquer sees the band wasting not a single second on non-music activities, riding high on this wave of creativity. Their forceful hardcore pummel is underwritten with dark humor, rage, disdain, and moments of real melancholy well beyond the usual remit of the genre, but it’s to be expected of Portland’s nihilistic champions, proudly unaligned with any other sound out there. They were there at the beginning and they’ll be there at the end, and in the meantime they have a lot more punk rock left to produce. Confuse & Conquer was recorded in their hometown by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust) and mastered by Brad Boatright (From Ashes Rise) at Audiosiege over the closing few months of 2014, and will see release via Southern Lord on the 7th of April on CD, LP and digital formats. Additionally, expanded reissues of seminal POISON IDEA titles War All The Time, Feel The Darkness and more are also in the works for the coming years. Formed in 1980, POISON IDEA became a household name in the hardcore/punk scenes early in their career, and are known as one of the most notoriously in-your-face acts in the American musical underworld, with an enraged, high-energy live set even more rambunctious than the massive roster of singles, EPs, full-length studio and live releases and more, across a realm of labels including Pusmort, Alchemy, American Leather, Bitzcore, Tim/Kerr, Taang!, Farewell, TKO, Southern Lord, Candlelight, and their own Fatal Erection. They’ve been an incredibly influential act to major performers including Nirvana, Pantera, Napalm Death, Machine Head, Eyehategod, Emperor, Turbonegro and an endless list of others. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Poison-Idea-Official-/366089496806858 http://www.southernlord.com http://southernlord.bandcamp.com http://twitter.com/twatterlord

A true master work of progressively tinged, otherworldly death metal.

The band’s commitment to crafting forward thinking music has helped them build their own diehard fanbase from the ground up. The name is derived from a city in the Al Anbar province of Iraq that, at the time of the band’s formation, sustained the highest concentration of destruction and casualties on both sides of the fighting. The members of FALLUJAH have lived much of their lives in the post 9/11 world growing up with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as observing the tension between East and West and religious turmoil. The city of Fallujah represents the pinnacle of tensions, hostility and destruction that has come to define the world we live in. “There’s so much going on here that it’ll take a few listens to really sink in; ambient keyboards, layered background vocals, meaty riffs, expertly crafted leads, and incredibly strong melodies all mashed into one dynamic, absolute beast of a song.” – MetalSucks on the track, “Sapphire.” http://fallujah.bandcamp.com http://www.facebook.com/fallujahofficial http://www.youtube.com/user/FallujahBand http://www.uniqueleader.com http://www.facebook.com/UniqueLeaderRecords http://www.twitter.com/UniqueLeaderRec http://www.youtube.com/uniqueleaderrecords

Death Metal Christmas – Hellish Renditions Of Christmas Classics -

Just in time for the holiday season, Hate Eternal bass maverick J.J. Hrubovcak vomits forth Death Metal Christmas – Hellish Renditions Of Christmas Classics, a twistedly unholy rendition of some of the seasons darkest hymns. Composed and produced by J.J. with vocals and artwork, by brother/Monstrosity throat Mike Hrubovcak, Death Metal Christmas – Hellish Renditions Of Christmas Classics was engineered by Hate Eternal mastermind Erik Rutan and J.J., mixed and mastered by Brian Elliott all at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida and boasts five deformed Christmas classics. Far from a campy holiday metal record, Christmas – Hellish Renditions Of Christmas Classics comes replete with updated arrangements, blast beats, double bass drum battery, hellbound guitar solos and new lyrics with a purpose. A death metal record first and Christmas album second, the themes of the hymns were used as a baseline for the music and can mostly be heard in the right channel. Everything else was built around the theme -- solo sections, intros, outros, harmonies, etc. It was very important from the start that this album not be a joke, but a serious record that could survive outside of the Christmas season and thus the resulting symphony of sickness.

14. ALL OUT WAR "Arise" [Amebix cover]

  • By EARSPLIT
ALL OUT WAR

ALL OUT WAR’s first official release since their 2010-released Into The Killing Fields LP, Dying Gods delivers nearly a half hour of the band’s most merciless material in years. Dying Gods brings forth five new original hymns which surge with the unmistakable groove-infused metallic punishment which elevated the band from a local favorite to international kingpins in the mid-1990s, the attack recalling the by-the-throat approach of their seminal For Those Who Were Crucified LP. Closing out the new release, ALL OUT WAR pays homage to some of their collectively influential acts, first with a pulverizing rendition of Amebix’s ritous anthem, “Arise,” followed by some classic sacrilege with Carnivore’s “God Is Dead.” With thunderous production, Dying Gods was engineered and produced by Steve Evetts (Hatebreed, Turmoil, Buried Alive, Suicide Silence) at West West Side Studios in New Windsor, New York, and mastered by Alan Douches from West West Side, its brutal cover art and design by Alexandre Goulet. Dying Gods will be released on CD, digital download and LP. The CD version comes with an exclusive bonus download of three tracks from the unreleased 1993 demo. The album will also see three vinyl pressings, including blood clear red, scorched earth sand tan, and smoke of destruction clear and black mix with bonus screen printed cover art by Dave Quiggle, all including a digital download code. Now nearing the band’s two-and-a-half decade mark, ALL OUT WAR has assaulted the masses with their metallic hardcore aggression since 1991 through a multitude of recordings, including a pile of singles and EPs, an LP on Germany’s Gain Ground Records, and four subsequent LPs on Chicago’s Victory Records. Featured is their trademark social commentary on such subjects as political and religious hypocrisy as well as social apathy of a materialistic population. They attack the relevant subjects of corruption of organized religion, ecocide, and the degradation and exploitation of the weak, set to a soundtrack appropriate for the end of days. With an unrelenting assault of the mid-‘80s German thrash scene colliding head-on with the crossover sound of Carnivore and the Cro-Mags, the band’s recorded arsenal and waves of worldwide touring has led them to become a respected staple act for metal and hardcore fans everywhere.

ALTERBEAST -

Sacramento technical death metal militia, ALTERBEAST, are pleased to unleash their full-length debut via Unique Leader this Spring! Titled Immortal, the eight track monster offering was meticulously assembled in several locals throughout 2013. With guitars and bass recorded at Augmented Audio in Los Angeles with former The Black Dahlia Murder bassist Ryan “Bart” Williams, vocals arranged at Mayhemeness Studios in Sacramento by Bob Swanson (Rings Of Saturn, Plague Window et al) and drums tracked at Castle Ultimate Studios with Zack Ohren (Light This City, All Shall Perish, First Blood, Cattle Decapitation, Warbringer et al), who also mixed and mastered the release, Immortal promises to deliver some of the most dynamic, instrumentally adept and plainly crushing material of the year. Elaborates vocalist Cam Rogers of the outcome: “Immortal is what was spawned from hard work, dedication, and downright brutal musicianship. It has intricate solos, absolutely crushing interludes and brutal circle-pit anthems. ALTERBEAST sets the scene with grievous piano preceding the onset of ‘Flesh Bound Text’ which comes in with blistering drums and guitars effortlessly making their way around the fret board. Every piece truly has its own personality on this record, whether it’s the apocalyptic soundscapes of ‘Ancient’s Retribution,’ the devastating aggression of ‘Vile Remnants’ or the unmerciful grooves in ‘Throne of Maggots.’ This album has something for every listener and comes together seamlessly to form as a breathtaking whole. Immortal is exactly what we intended it to be: a gripping and intense death metal album.” Immortal Track Listing: 1. Flesh Bound Text 2. Of Decimus Divine 3. Vile Remnants 4. Ancient’s Retribution 5. Mutilated Marvel 6. Into Oblivion 7. Serpentspire 8. Throne of Maggots Formed in 2011 under the working title Gary Busey Amber Alert (GBAA), ALTERBEAST combines the teachings of The Black Dahlia Murder, Necrophagist and Spawn of Possession with the classic death metal mastery of band’s like Dissection and Morbid Angel into an irate expulsion of sonic deviance. After a year of dedicated song-crafting, ALTERBEAST unleashed their first demo in 2012 and officially waged war on the populace with numerous shows opening for Deicide, Dying Fetus, Testament, Revocation, Exhumed, Severed Savior and many others. Their crushing live assaults combined with a DIY ethos quickly earned them a revered place within the local death metal community. Immortal will rear its head upon the masses on March 18, 2014 via Unique Leader. Further intel, including preorder links, to be announced in the coming days. ALTERBEAST Personnel: Cam Rogers – Vocals Rusty Cornell – Guitar Andrew Lamb – Guitar Michael Zamora – Bass Gabe Seeber (The Kennedy Veil, Decrepit Birth, Abysmal Dawn et al) – Drums https://www.facebook.com/ALTERBEASTofficial http://www.youtube.com/ALTERBEASTofficial http://uniqueleader.com

16. ALL OUT WAR "Vengeance Reigns Eternal"

ALL OUT WAR

ALL OUT WAR’s first official release since their 2010-released Into The Killing Fields LP, Dying Gods delivers nearly a half hour of the band’s most merciless material in years. Dying Gods brings forth five new original hymns which surge with the unmistakable groove-infused metallic punishment which elevated the band from a local favorite to international kingpins in the mid-1990s, the attack recalling the by-the-throat approach of their seminal For Those Who Were Crucified LP. Closing out the new release, ALL OUT WAR pays homage to some of their collectively influential acts, first with a pulverizing rendition of Amebix’s ritous anthem, “Arise,” followed by some classic sacrilege with Carnivore’s “God Is Dead.” With thunderous production, Dying Gods was engineered and produced by Steve Evetts (Hatebreed, Turmoil, Buried Alive, Suicide Silence) at West West Side Studios in New Windsor, New York, and mastered by Alan Douches from West West Side, its brutal cover art and design by Alexandre Goulet. Dying Gods will be released on CD, digital download and LP. The CD version comes with an exclusive bonus download of three tracks from the unreleased 1993 demo. The album will also see three vinyl pressings, including blood clear red, scorched earth sand tan, and smoke of destruction clear and black mix with bonus screen printed cover art by Dave Quiggle, all including a digital download code. Now nearing the band’s two-and-a-half decade mark, ALL OUT WAR has assaulted the masses with their metallic hardcore aggression since 1991 through a multitude of recordings, including a pile of singles and EPs, an LP on Germany’s Gain Ground Records, and four subsequent LPs on Chicago’s Victory Records. Featured is their trademark social commentary on such subjects as political and religious hypocrisy as well as social apathy of a materialistic population. They attack the relevant subjects of corruption of organized religion, ecocide, and the degradation and exploitation of the weak, set to a soundtrack appropriate for the end of days. With an unrelenting assault of the mid-‘80s German thrash scene colliding head-on with the crossover sound of Carnivore and the Cro-Mags, the band’s recorded arsenal and waves of worldwide touring has led them to become a respected staple act for metal and hardcore fans everywhere. After several years off the grid, in 2013 ALL OUT WAR came crushing back with the reunited For Those Who Were Crucified-era lineup and laid waste at both This Is Hardcore Fest and 2014’s A389 Records Bash. The momentum has been growing ever since. In 2015, ALL OUT WAR returns with Dying Gods.
