The "Beware of the Night" CD was once again produced by Juan Urteaga (Testament, Exodus, Sadus) at Trident Studios in Martinez, CA with cover art by Brian Lewis (DevilDriver, Zakk Wylde, Cultural Warfare) at Stone Design and will be released March 31st on M-Theory Audio. Pre-orders, including t-shirt bundles, available at this location.

“This video is truly a historic chapter in the Blessed Curse history book because it marks the first official video from the band,” explains drummer Derek Bean. “I can’t say enough about the pro quality of the Beware of the Night EP project and everything that has gone into it from the time in the studio to this lyric video and everything in between. After first view of the ‘Nightbreed’ video, my initial reaction was ‘this is absolutely killer.' I love the Evil Dead/Blair Witch camera views of something going through the woods. The vibe of the song was definitely captured to the T in this vid.” More...

Blessed Curse Announces "Beware Of The Night"

Nor Cal’s Blessed Curse is back. It’s been some time since the trio released a full-length, self-titled album in 2012. But on March 31st these thrashers make a comeback with "Beware of the Night."

Ripping and tearing through five new songs of blistering, aggressive metal, "Beware of the Night" was once again produced by Juan Urteaga (Sadus, Exodus, Testament) at Trident Studios.

“Recording with Juan has been a great experience in the past and this time was no different,” states drummer Derek Bean. “I feel like this whole session was an improvement from the 2012 self-titled album from our playing to the final masters. We worked timely and efficiently on getting these songs recorded to the best of all our abilities, which definitely shows in the final release.”

The album also introduces new bass player Dan Keenan. “The delay of the band also just had to do with finding the correct person who has the same goals and desires as us and wants to improve and push us forward into our own sound and style which took some time,” adds Derek.

Now armed with a new recording, featuring striking cover artwork from Stone Design’s Brian Lewis (DevilDriver, Black Label Society, Cultural Warfare), Blessed Curse has been doing regional shows, including one this week supporting The Mentors at Café Colonial in Sacramento on February 18th. In the meantime, the guys promise there won’t be as much delay between recordings with several new songs already written for a future full album. More...

Devastator Changes Name To Blessed Curse

Sacramento, California metal act Devastator has announced that it will be changing its name to Blessed Curse. The band offered the following explanation:

"Due to the ever-increasing number of bands deciding to use the name Devastator, and '.....tor' bands in general that have been springing up these days we've concluded that it is best for our band to stand out from the pack as much as possible, apart from our music alone. This new name fits our band to the letter because of our extensive history of being a band from an area where there is not much of anything for a music scene and having to travel to build any kind of fanbase, life on the road, all the ups and downs and in betweens of being in a metal band.

"Also, about a year ago we were fortunate to meet a local fan of our band for many years named Clark Webb, who is now wielding rhythm guitar with us, making our band officially no longer a trio and making us an even more powerful force to be reckoned with in the metal music world."
