Decibel Magazine is hurling forth three tracks from "Isolation Room," the forthcoming new limited edition vinyl release from The Guilt Of...
Check out the limb-severing goodness of the title track, “Social Recall Rewind,” and “The Ides Ballot" at this location or in the player below. The following press release was issued about the band:
"Influenced by the streets, the sick, the lower class, the woods, wine, the hedonistic criminal bliss of New Orleans, and the destruction of time signatures, The Guilt Of… is propagated by the demented duo of EyeHateGod's Mike IX Williams and former Wolvhammer evildoer Ryan Mckern. Together they spew a dark, angst-ridden sound implosion of industrialized filth and audio decay.
"Think Skinny Puppy on steroids infused with tortured punk rock vocals, blackened guitar decomposition and power electronics. Isolation Room delivers seven tracks in over thirty minutes all mastered for vinyl by James Plotkin and will be issued by Last Hurrah Records on June 8th."

The long-running fathers of southern sludge metal EyeHateGod were filmed for an upcoming episode of HBO’s “Treme.” The show follows the recovery of New Orleans after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Creators David Simon and Eric Overmyer strived to make a true-to-life portrait of the lives of people living close to the historic Treme (pronounced Tre-may) neighborhood in New Orleans. They decided to involve as many local actors and real locations as possible; including filming many musicians like Dr. John, rapper Juvenile, bounce artists Big Freedia and Katey Red, and brass bands Rebirth Brass Band, Hot 8 Brass Band, and the Dirty Dozen. “Treme” has produced two seasons and will premiere the third season, containing the episode with the metal band, this fall. The episode including EyeHateGod was filmed at Southport Hall on February 15th and is set in January 2008. More...

Blackened death metal outfit Wolvhammer has lost the band's frontman Ryan Mckern. Wolvhammer is currently on tour, traveling down to play at SXSW in Austin, Texas, tonight at the Free Day Party. The vocalist/guitarist was replaced by vocalist Adam Clemans of Iron Thrones and guitarist Jeff Wilson formerly of Nachtmystium.
Ryan Mckern claims the reasons behind the change: “I moved to New Orleans this year as I have been going back and forth from Minneapolis to Louisiana to work with my project The Guilt Of…with Mike IX Williams [EyeHateGod and Arson Anthem vocalist]. Wolvhammer was a great way to be creative while I had to temporarily leave New Orleans in 2009. During my time in the band I wrote two EP’s and an album and did five tours, while commuting to NOLA for The Guilt Of…which got a writeup in Decibel Magazine. When I discussed wanting to do both Wolvhammer and new projects in new Orleans, the band decided to fire me. They are performing all new material and the two songs from “Black Marketeers” that I didn’t write. My picture is still being used in some press for their tour. But I wish them the best but would like to also say I expect new sounds and not what I did for them on previous albums. Fans of Wolvhammer can be on the lookout for some solo black metal songs I have coming out soon.” More...
