Below is our complete All Shall Perish news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
Oakland's All Shall Perish will unveil their second Nuclear Blast Records offering this summer. Entitled "The Price Of Existence," the new album reportedly "shows incredible maturity and a more focused approach to both songwriting and delivery."
"The album is 99% done, we're just waiting on the artwork now," boasts drummer Matt Kuykendall. "The new are light years ahead of the last album, it's a really diverse album and a little epic as well."
The band have enlisted famed tattoo artist Adam Barton to handle the cover art for "The Price Of Existence," which will be released in August. Expect consistent touring in support of the new album, starting off with a full US tour alongside Suicide Silence and Light This City throughout July and August.
In the meantime you can check out a demo MP3 of their new song "Eradication" on the band's website.
Oakland based Death Metal band ALL SHALL PERISH have released a new demo song titled "Eradication" with a new vocalist, Eddie Hermida (ex-Gunmetal Grey). Along with their new lead guitarist Chris Storey, they are nearing the end of the writing process for their yet to be titled sophomore album which will be released on Nuclear Blast Records. This year saw the band touring with acts such as Agnostic Front, Death Before Dishonor, Hate Eternal, and Krisun; while playing shows with everyone from Comeback Kid to Kreator in support of their first full length re-release on Nuclear Blast.
"After touring with some of the best in hardcore and death metal, we really got inspired to take this band full on in both directions and I'm sure everyone will hear the influence. All I can say is thank you so much to people like Erik Rutan, Derek Roddy, Roger Merit and Vinnie Stigma....thanks for being true inspirations. We have parted ways with our vocalist Craig Betit and he remains a friend for life to all of us and is livin' it up on the east coast makin' bank; we all wish him the best of luck. Our new material will have something for every heavy music fan! We have all matured musically (some of us were only 18 at the time of the last album), you can expect a lot of variation amongst the songs....we are again ready to rock, bitches!"
On Sunday, June 26th I attended the Hate Eternal show at BB King's in New York City. Along with Hate Eternal, openers were Jungle Rot, Into Eternity, Incantation, All Shall Perish, and Krisiun.
Jungle Rot opened and was exceptional from the first few songs I heard due to my prior engagement with Eric Rutan and the interview I had done with him. After Jungle Rot was All Shall Perish, I only knew that because I heard it from across the hall. I was in the bar wrapping up my interview. From what I heard as I walked in during their last few songs, they were pretty decent. Then, Into Eternity came on, I was expecting more from them seeing as my friend that came with me had me all hyped up about them, what I got was completely different.
Into Eternity’s set was more singing and melodic, which is ok, when you’re at a power metal show or some other type of show, not a death metal concert. Into Eternity’s musicianship was unique and they have good solos, but one starts to wonder after the first 3 songs if they can do anything else with the guitar besides the same solos. Into Eternity’s vocalist and drummer on the other hand were very good, the front man, Stu, put on an incredible falsetto, very energetic, and worked the crowd very well. Into Eternity’s drummer seemed to be the only one, along with the bassist, and Stu, holding the band together. Overall, they could have been better playing some of their harder material. Incantation was next, an exceptional death metal trio.
Incantation, at my first glance made me wonder where their fourth member was as the sound was overwhelming for just three people. Also, Incantation’s musicianship was incredible with the guitar solos and reminded me very much of Vader and Nile. Overall, I believe they were one of the best acts on the bill that night. Following Incantation was Krisiun. Having previously seen them at a local metal fest, I knew what to expect, or so I thought.
Krisiun came on and blew me away with their intense energy from start to finish. I was very much pleased, to say the least, that Krisiun improved their performance by showing 100% more energy than they had at the metal fest! When they came on, it was like the whole show had gotten an enormous wake up call and everyone jumped to life. Krisiun blew everyone away and left people begging for more! I would strongly recommend seeing them if they are in an area near you!
Last, but certainly not least, Hate Eternal came on! Having done the previous interview with Eric Rutan, I was expecting an amazing show and anxious to hear this “new sound” he had been talking about. Though, I did not get to hear it first, I was pleasantly surprised to say the least when they started with a lot of their older songs from their prior two albums. I was even more excited when they played my favorite Hate Eternal song, “King of All Kings”, but that wasn’t the highlight. In fact, the highlight didn’t come until 2-3 songs later when they started with some new songs of the new album, “I, Monarch”. Once I heard the new songs, I thought, “Wow, so THAT’S what the ranting and raving’s been about!” Hate Eternal have created what seems to be a brand new speed of metal, and new extreme in which to play metal. I do not believe ANY band could top their speed and quality! ESPECIALLY their live show, the end was my favorite because as soon as they started to play the last song, there was a MASS bum rush to the stage and everyone who wanted to, came up on stage and got to be up there with Hate Eternal for their last song! I give this band and this show a 10 for all bands being really cool, regardless of what critics might say or think and Hate Eternal for being EXTREMELY nice to their fans and yelling at guards that were taking kids off the stage!
All Shall Perish singer Craig Betit has been ousted from the band for undisclosed reasons. Contacted for comment, Betit informed Lambgoat that his dimissal was due to "disagreements." No official announcement has been released, but the split was reportedly on amicable terms. Contrary to previous reports, lead guitarist Chris Storey has not quit the band.
Canada's Ion Dissonance have released the following update:
First of, Solace is now entirely recorded and mastered, and well, lets just say that we are all very anxious to release the first mp3 so that people will know why we are so proud of that album. We are waiting for Abacus to know when the song "Cleansed by Silence" will be uploaded on the net as first single (which should be anytime soon).
Both Canadian (last April) and American (June) tour were awesome thanks to all of you who showed to the shows and had a good time, i know we did. And thanks to all of our mates, in Despised Icon, From a Second Story Window, Reflux, and On Broken Wings, 'cause of them we had an even better time. You guys have no ideas how grateful we are...

June 10th-11th will mark the return of the nationally acclaimed 'Dwell in Darkness' festival that is set to bring a dark cloud over the city of Dayton, Ohio for two straight days. In a waning metal scene, SMNnews.com in conjunction with JagerMeister, and The End Records will be breathing new life back into Dayton, Ohio for a two day metal extravaganza that will feature a myriad of international, national, regional, and local bands.
The 2 days of pure metal fury will be unleashed at Elbos, a premiere Dayton venue that will be housing most diverse festival that North America has to offer. Located in the heart of the "Oregon District", Elbos features an outdoor patio, pool tables, vendorville and merch areas, and a full bar.
Headlining Day One (June 10th) of Dwell in Darkness II, all the way from Norway will be Century Media Records' mighty Extol. The band will be performing in support of their May 3rd release "Blueprint Dives" as they trek across North America. Co-headlining with Extol will be Listenable Records' road-warriors Incantation who will be making a special one-off appearance before heading out on a full US tour with Hate Eternal. Like a turd in your easter basket, Friday's lineup wouldn't be complete without the almighty grindcore quartet of Circle of Dead Children. Day one of terror continues with the addition of the incredibly brutal black metal stalwarts Summon, regional powerhouses Estuary, and Cleopatra Records artists Wehrwolfe. Also flying in from Norway to make a rare one off US performance, will be up and coming death metallers Judas Goat. Fusing the best of the mid-west and east coast with a flavorful touch of European metal delight, June 10th is set to make metal history in Dayton, Ohio. Throcult will also be making there way across a few states to debut some new material for all to see and hear. On top of that…preparing to send a bold, powerful statement to their local metal community, rounding out the day's lineup will be Blackmetal.com artists Sin Origin, regionals Black Trinity and Skullcap, New York's Fecal Corpse, Kansas Metal Awards winners Evermourn, Kentucky's Day I Dread, West Virginia's Premature Burial, and locals Elusive Travel.
If Friday wasn't enough - prepare for the unstoppable lineup of Saturday (June 11th)…Headlining the 2nd day of this amazing event will be the insane, intense, musical powerhouses who recently inked a deal with TVT Records and go by the name of Bobaflex. Known for their brutal live show, and onstage intensity, the band will be taking time out of the studio to headline this prestigious Ohio event - so start preparing yourself. Adding to the tally of the east coast's biggest names in rock and metal that will be appearing at Dwell in Darkness II is Artemis Records' Dog Fashion Disco. DFD will be making a special one off appearance to take to the stage in Dayton, Ohio as they continue to work on their major label debut. Century Media's finest Canadian act, progressive-melodic-death metallers Into Eternity as well as one of Nuclear Blast Records latest signings All Shall Perish will be storming the front, part of an all out main stage Ohioan aural assault.
Also diverging away from their regular touring schedule, from the white-hot West Coast label, Prosthetic Records (Lamb of God, All that Remains, Himsa, etc.), will be one of West Virginia's most merciless and forthright acts - Byzantine. Alas, what would a true festival be without a bit of female spice? Broadzilla, who have toured the world, will also be stopping by to tear the house down. Jetting over from Illinois, with bottles of Jager in hand, and plenty of free merch, will be Metal Blade Records artists and rock and roll virtuosos the Heavils - expect a set-time full of surprises! The pit doesn't stop there. Upping the ante and flying in from New York City to wreak havoc upon the city of Dayton, a band who will be making their second Dwell in Darkness appearance, is former Century Media/Kingfisher Records hardcore artists 4 in tha Chamber. Also making the trip from the East Coast, a group who has taken to the stage at European Festivals such as Wacken, and have toured relentlessly all over Germany, will be Twisted Tower Dire. Other namesakes rounding out the billing for Saturday, June 11th will be doomsters Avernus, who recently inked a deal with Flood the Earth Records, Lifeforce Records' Hell Within, New York City's Mr. Bungle Fast Eddie, as well as, A Waking Nightmare, The Messiah Complex, Rev. 9, Project 44, Jackalopes, I Died Trying, Morphic Resonance, Splitt, Caje, Lowchain, Ludavico Technique, Seconds from Disaster, Enslaved to Mercy, South Gate, Regiment, Dissonant Hatred, Krimson Reign, Needless Guilt, Rewind, Diskreet, Metaphysical, Woe of Tyrants and Fourty Tour.
This two day phenomenon, that features artists from Ferret Records, Metal Blade Records, Century Media Records, Prosthetic Records, Cleopatra Records, TVT Records, Listenable Records, and Lifeforce Records, with bands coming in from Norway, Pennsylvania, Kansas, West Virginia, California, Illinois, Kentucky, and New York. The show will ONLY cost a mere $15 dollars a day, with two-day passes running for a discounted rate at $27. Bringing in genres of music from all across the world, and from all across the United States, Dwell in Darkness II provides the best in hardcore, metal core, heavy metal, black metal, death metal, doom, industrial, and much, much more all for the cost of a 3 band club show.
There will also be hourly giveaways, raffles, contests, festival shirts, merch booths, autograph sessions with performing artists, vendorville areas, and much, much more. Also on hand to complete your two days of metal will be SMNnews.com and SMN Promotions Staff, who will be flying in to meet and greet fans, and MC the event. Discounted hotels rates are available for traveling parties through the Red Roof Inn in Miamisburg, Ohio @ 937-866-0705 - just mention the group name of 'Dwell'!

Oakland, California, technical metalcore outfit All Shall Perish will release their debut album, "Hate, Malice, Revenge," April 19.
MARTYR AD has broken up, according to a post on the official AGNOSTIC FRONT site. The band says MARTYR AD dropped off their tour with Agnostic Front and broke up due to "band indifferences." Local bands will be added to the remaining AGNOSTIC FRONT dates to make up for MARTYR AD's cancelation of the tour.
In other news, AGNOSTIC FRONT has issued the following tour report:
"Two days ago on Wednesday, we headed out on the road again. the first show was a makeup show with MADBALL, MURDERERS ROW, and AFTER THE FALL in albany. We had a lot of friends come out to support us. Seeing so many familiar faces was a good way to start everything off. Both opening bands were really good, and MADBALL played great as usual. During our set, my brother Freddy came up to sing "so pure to me" with me. Yesterday was the first show of the actual tour in Lancaster, PA. Needless to say, everything got off to a chaotic start. We received news that our main support band for the tour, MARTYR AD, just broke up. Then on the way to the show we had van problems and [had to] stop to get it fixed [which] making us very late. We got to the venue only to hear that DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR's van had broken down and that they probably couldn't make it. But FIVE ACROSS THE EYES and ALL SHALL PERISH played and both had really good sets. The crowd was great for us and despite all the complications, it turned out to be a really great show."

Canadian progressive death metal band INTO ETERNITY resume their Canadian tour today in Winnipeg. Although members of the band are still ailing from prolonged bouts with strep throat and pneumonia, they have vowed to bring their intense live show to dedicated audiences.
INTO ETERNITY was forced to cancel several of their late March appearances supporting Amorphis after guitarist Rob Doherty sought emergency medical treatment in Atlanta. Diagnosed with pneumonia and advised to enter the hospital, the band immediately returned to Canada where Doherty, vocalist Stu Block, and guitarist/vocalist Tim Roth (who played shows with fevers topping 104° F) were all treated for pneumonia. You can read Rob’s full account here.
INTO ETERNITY are touring in support of their critically acclaimed album Buried In Oblivion. In addition to their tour with Amorphis, the band will be touring the U.S. this summer with Hate Eternal, Krisiun, Incantation, and All Shall Perish and this fall with power metal masters Stratovarius.

Krisiun will be supporting their new release "Bloodshed," which contains eight new tracks highlighting the kings of hyperspeed's diversity and musical development.

Boston-based quintet Diecast just shot a video for "Medieval" with acclaimed director Dale Resteghini (Fear Factory, Hatebreed). The track comes off of the band's highly anticipated new album, "Tearing Down Your Blue Skies," set for an October 19th release. Jeremy Wooden (bass) checks in with the following band update:
Diecast just had a very busy weekend. First I'd like to thank Mike Hsu and WAAF for the interview on Harder Faster on Thursday night. On Friday, we shot our first video for our single "Medieval." I'd like to thank Scott Lee for being so cooperative and allowing us to use Fat Cat's if we had needed it. At the last minute we were able to end up shooting the video at Fort Revere in Hull, which was amazing. We were expecting a few cameras and a couple of people for the video. What we got were 4 box trucks full of equipment and a 15 person video crew. Dale and his crew were some of the best people we've ever met. We had camera's on mini railroad tracks, lighting, fog machines, guns, hookers and fire-trucks. For a minute I thought I was playing bass for Britney Spears....it was awesome. I'd like to thank all of our friends we haven't seen in a long time for coming out to be in the video. We even had a surprise guest appearance by the almighty hoods in the video.
On Saturday night we played a hometown show at Club Liquid, which is about a mile from my house. The club took great care of us and the show went well minus the fight that happened and some asshole owes me 150.00 for putting their foot through my bass case. We topped it off on Sunday at WAAF sponsored Locobazooka. Unfortunately, for us and Candiria we went on after Damageplan who closed their set with "Walk" by Pantera. That was a tough act to follow but Candiria ripped it up, brought all the kids running back over and the crowd gave us an amazing reaction. Kids were singing our new stuff all the way to the back of the crowd, which was amazing to us. I'd also like to thank our manager Mike Crowley and his buddy Kevin for helping out all weekend. Last but not least we finally got scrims and a banner, which almost made me cry tears of joy. Thanks everyone for a great weekend and we'll see you soon.
Diecast will also embark on a string of headlining west-coast dates in early November. It has been three years since the band hit this area and these shows are not to be missed.
