Walls Of Jericho Leave Devildriver Tour

WALLS OF JERICHO have posted the following update:

“We can honestly say that it is a huge disappointment on our end. This has been a tour that we have been extremely excited about and looking forward to for several months and to back out was very tough for us. However our label (Trustkill Records) has decided to pull tour support funding for this tour as they feel finishing our next record is the number one priority. Our management and label both feel that we need to be writing our new record in preparation for a spring recording and with this tour we just don’t have enough time to accomplish all things. With that said the decision has been handed down and we are forced to cancel. However, this will ensure a summer/late summer release for our new as yet untitled full-length record which we have been working very hard on as of late and should turn out to be nothing short of incredible. The extra time devoted to this record is going to pay off big time and we should be able to come out with a record we can truely be proud of and excited about. We would like to apologize to all the bands on this tour for pulling out so late and we would like to also apologize to all the people who were looking forward to seeing us in the next few weeks.”

Withered Offers Up Recording and Touring Update

Withered has sent the following update on their recording and touring efforts:

Some things worth mentioning: There will be a guest vocal appearance by Mark ‘Barney’ Greenway of Napalm Death and we’re recording a cover of Necrophobic’s ‘Into Armageddon.’ WITHERED is finally spreading the darkness to the West Coast and Southwest, too. And, we’re doing it solo! We’re bringing new merch as well. See all you west coast people in about a month!”

"New" Nasum Album Coming This Year

COLDWORKER/ex-NASUM drummer Anders Jakobson has issued the following update:

"So how about this — there will be a new NASUM album in 2008! Yes, a final album and then nothing more. It's the live recording from Japan 2004 that has been in the archives for quite a while. It's a little bit confusing but I'll try to explain everything as clear as possible:"

"First, there will be a split with NAPALM DEATH, a limited-edition picture disc released by Feto very soon... Can't really be specific about the release date at this point."

"Then, the NASUM side of the split will be a stand-alone CD called 'Doombringer' on Relapse. This is a digipack release that apart from the 16 songs also will include Mitch Harris video for 'Scoop' and liner notes by me. The album will be released March 4th and can be pre-ordered from Relapse now. There might be an LP version of 'Doombringer' as well; I have at least OK'd the artwork for the LP."

Here is the "Doombringer" (cover artwork) track listing: More...

J2 Signs To The End Records

The End Records has signed the new project entitled J2, featuring enigmatic singer/songwriter/performer Jarboe and Justin Broadrick, frontman for ambient/progressive noise project Jesu.

Jarboe is known for her 14 years work with the legendary NYC East Village ArtRock band Swans, as well as her recent musical collaborations with such bands as Jesu, Neurosis and A Perfect Circle. Broadrick, who joined pioneering U.K. grind band Napalm Death at the age of 15, formed the influential metal/industrial act Godlflesh in the late-80s and in 2003 started up his current band Jesu.

"When I met Justin, he commented upon the impact and influence of Swans upon his music. We did a concert together in London in 2005 and began discussing working together. I had also been drawn to the unique energy of Jesu and so this was exciting to explore."

The J2 album will be released in the spring of 2008.

Napalm Death Bassist Checks In From Chile

NAPALM DEATH bassist Shane Embury has issued the following road update:

"Concepción, Chile - halfway through our Latin American tour and things have been going great. We have been meeting some amazing people on this tour. All the people who have made the shows as good and smooth as can be. Max our promoter down here in Latin America has been doing a killer job also (I have worked with him a few times on previous BRUJERIA tours) and the fans have been really killer and enthusiastic. It's made all the early morning flights and insane schedules worth it for sure. Argentina is coming up after that and a lot of old friends to see as well as Brazil after that and yet more old friends. I wonder if the KRISIUN boys are in town."

Napalm Death's remaining Latin America schedule is as follows:

20 - Buenos Aires, Argentina - El Teatro Flores
21 - Rosario, Argentina - El Sotano
23 - Cordoba, Argentina - Captain Blue
25 - Sao Paulo, Brazil - Hangar 110
27 - Rio De Janeiro, Brazil - Circo Voador

Anaal Nathrakh Set To Release New Album

The forthcoming Anaal Nathrakh album, entitled "Hell Is Empty, And All The Devils Are Here," is due to be released through FETO Records on October 29th 2007. Their fourth studio album promises to be a rabid whirlwind of schizophrenic malice, wide-eyed terror, and venom that is as encyclopaedic in its genre defying convulsions as it is downright vile.

Having featured several notable guest appearances through their recording career, Anaal Nathrakh are this time aided and abetted in their chaos by Josama Bin Horvath of American ultra-grind band Circle Of Dead Children, and are reunited with slave to the grind Shane Embury of Napalm Death.

Napalm Death Check In From The Road

British grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH have issued the following update:

"NAPALM DEATH tour's been great. Australia was a blast. Met some great new friends and the shows were killer. The best show in Australia? Tricky, but we would go for Adelaide — some crazy people there, for sure, and had a great time after the show. In Wellington, New Zealand today on a day off. Killer show again last night and we're looking forward to Auckland tomorrow — we won't leave it 11 years 'till we come here next time, that's for sure. Heading to China in a few days for the first time, so that will be a blast. It's been a fun year and we still have Latin America to come in October. Looking forward to meeting some old friends."

Classic British Metal Documentary Posted Online

In 1989, BBC2 television aired a five-part music genre documentary series in the UK called “Arena.” One of the episodes, “Heavy Metal,” featured live footage from Metallica, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Napalm Death, Motörhead, Slayer and others.

The production features no narration, instead relying on interview commentary and concert clips to place the viewer in the heart of the metal scene and elliptically tell the story of the genre.

Various scenes specifically delve into metal culture: a club full of kids, but no bands, mosh around a dancefloor to music broadcast on a PA; and a kid who couldn’t be more than 10 shreds out solos with more agility than most thrash metal veterans.

There are also straight-out humorous moments, like when an interviewer asks W. Axl Rose, “Do you have anything in common with Iron Maiden, and he replies without a pause, “I hope not.”

You can watch this metal portion of the feature on Google Videos.

Earache Artists Featured In Spanish Exhibition

A group of young Spanish artists is featuring music from Earache's extreme back catalog in an award-winning exhibition on show at the La Casa Encendida art gallery in Madrid, Spain. The exhibition, entitled "Ruidos, Silencios y la Trasgresion Mordaz. De Fluxus al Techno-Noise" ("Noises, Silences and the Biting Transgression. From Fluxus to Techno-Noise"), portrays a creative link between artists belonging to the Fluxus group and their fascination with out-there music. The music featuring in this exhibition includes soundbites from NAPALM DEATH's "Scum", A.C.'s "Everyone Should Be Killed", BRUTAL TRUTH's "Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses", SORE THROAT's "Disgrace to the Corpse of Sid" and O.L.D.'s "Old Lady Drivers".

The exhibition is beind held at the La Casa Encendia Arts Centre until September 9. More information is available at http://www.lacasaencendida.com/LCE/lceCruce/0,0,73537_0_73537_7466%24P1%3D16,00.html (note the article is in Spanish).

The artists involved claim to express rejection of traditional values and pursue an interest in noise within their work, particularly forming a connection between noise and transgression. With this in mind, soundbites from some of Earache's most grinding releases prove fitting to express the artists' ideas and visions.

Max and Igor Cavalera Writing Together Again

According to Sirius Satellite Radio, brothers Max and Igor Cavalera are writing together again. According to Sirius, the new songs may include guest appearances by members of Napalm Death and Soulfly guitarist Marc Rizzo.

Igor Cavalera has been a free agent since he left Sepultura in June 2006 to work on personal issues. He was replaced by ex-Udora drummer Jean Dolabella.

In December 1996, following the tragic death of Max’s stepson, his bandmates — including his brother — tried to fire his wife and grieving manager Gloria Cavalera because they weren’t happy with the way she was handling the band’s business. Max viewed the move as an act of betrayal, quit the band and cut off contact with Igor until last year. Then on August 17 at the D-Low Memorial Festival in Tempe, Arizona, an event to honor the memory of Max’s late stepson, the guitarist and his brother took the stage to play two Sepultura songs, “Roots Bloody Roots” and “Attitude.”

Napalm Death's Punishment In Capitols US Release

Long sought after as a collectors' import item, NAPALM DEATH's 28-track live album, "Punishment in Capitals", is finally being released for the first time in the United States by Armoury Records (distributed stateside by Eagle Rock Entertainment) on June 12.

This deathball of metal history, recorded in 2003 London at the ULU, features vocalist Barney Greenway, guitarists Mitch Harris/Jesse Pintado, bassist Shane Embury and drummer Danny Herrera at the height of their stonecold headbanging heaviness…a solid hour of such.

Epitomizing the essence of what came to be known as "grindcore," NAPALM DEATH was born in Birmingham, England in 1981. Running out of original members by the time its second album came out, the band at first consisted of a revolving door of thrash and hardcore luminaries, many who have gone on to form other such bands as CARCASS, GODFLESH, CATHEDRAL and others. The current lineup, though, has been solvent since '91, sans Pintado, who passed away in 1996.

Eagle Rock Entertainment develops, acquires and produces music programming for a wide range of notable and high profile artists, which the company distributes on a worldwide basis. Eagle Rock Entertainment, Eagle Vision and Eagle Eye Media are wholly owned divisions of Eagle Rock Group, Ltd.

"Punishment in Capitals" track listing:

01. Lucid Fairytale
02. Take The Poison
03. Next On The List
04. Constitutional Hell
05. Suffer The Children
06. Cleanse Impure
07. Politicians
08. Breed To Breathe
09. Vermin
10. The World Keeps Turning
11. Can’t Pay Won't Play
12. Unchallenged Hate
13. Volume Of Neglect
14. Narcoleptic
15. Hung
16. From Enslavement To Obliteration
17. Scum
18. Life
19. The Kill
20. Deceiver
21. You Suffer
22. Cure For A Common Complaint
23. Mass Appeal Madness
24. Greed Killing
25. Instinct Of Survival
26. Nazi Punks Fuck Off
27. Back From The Dead
28. Siege Of Power
