SXSW 2014 Day Four: Spirit Caravan

Saturday, March 14, the roads seem quiet compared to the previous night. Part of this was due to my moving back to Red River Street and away from Dirty Sixth. Everybody seemed tired, and as a publicist opined to me, Thursday morning's crash on Red River casted bad mojo onto the festivities. Whatever the cause, there was no 1001 person to flood a capacity venue. More...

SXSW 2014 Day Three: Dio Tribute, Metalsucks

Friday, March 14, 2014, my third day attending SXSW music festivities, started just after 3 pm. This event was my only excursion outside of live music. Members of Landshark Promotions and DJ Chuck Loesch of 101X "No Control Radio" premiered a CD of the Ronnie James Dio tribute album "This Is Your Life." The three-person panel presented each track from the forthcoming recording featuring an all-star lineup of modern and classic metal artists. It felt good singing along to these majestic reworkings done in the name of charity. 100% of the proceeds will go towards Wendy Dio's "Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund" .

Iron Reagan Signs To Relapse Records

Relapse Records is extremely proud to announce the signing of Richmond, Virginia hardcore thrash group Iron Reagan.

Consisting of current and former members of Municipal Waste, Cannabis Corpse, Darkest Hour, Mammoth Grinder, Suppression and more, Iron Reagan formed in 2012 and consists of vocalist Tony Foresta, guitarists Phil Hall and Mark Bronzino, bassist Rob Skotis and drummer Ryan Parrish.

Iron Reagan is currently in the midst of recording a sophomore full-length with guitarist Phil Hall at Blaze Of Torment Studios in the band's hometown of Richmond and will be self-producing the record before sending it off to Converge's Kurt Ballou to be mixed. A Fall release is expected.

Tony Foresta comments on the signing and the new tunes brewing: "I've wanted to work with Relapse for years. Their reputation of releasing so much great underground music speaks for itself. We are all extremely excited about signing with Relapse and putting out this rager of an upcoming record. Having Kurt Ballou on board mixing is just the icing on the cake. We are about 75% done tracking the record here with Phil in Richmond and between this and the rad tours we have coming up, it's looking to be a very exciting year. I couldn't think of a better label to put this record out on and am really looking forward to a long future with Relapse."

Brainsqueeze Festival Trailer Available

In celebration of the second edition of Brainsqueeze Fest, the enablers at Oakland-based Tankcrimes Records, in cooperation with Decibel Magazine, offers up a maniacally side-splitting new teaser video. Check it out below.

Elaborates fest founder/Tankcrimes big cheese Scotty Heath, "The reason it took me four years to have a second Brainsqueeze is because we didn't have a new and better idea for a second commercial, the first one was a fucking phenomenon. Then this great idea came along so I booked the gig. Created by the same team as before of Ross Sewage and Mark Reategui who actually work completely separate from each other. They fucking nailed it."

Set to commence April 18th and 19th at the Oakland Metro and April 20th at Eli's Mile High Club, which will include BBQ and an Andrei Bouzikov art show, the gargantuan Brainsqueeze gala features more than a dozen face-raping acts including Municipal Waste, Final Conflict, Ghoul and Negative Approach.

Ghoul Announces "Weapons Of Mosh Destruction" Tour

Ghoul - the hooded hooligans of Creepsylvania - are bursting blood vessels to finally announce the second installment of the Weapons Of Most Destruction Tour.

Set to launch this April, team Ghoul will lay waste to seven unsuspecting metropolises throughout the West Coast alongside hardcore thrash mutant accomplices, Iron Reagan, and experimental punk/hardcore rippers, Occultist.

Following their pillage, the band will spread ghoulish delectables all over Oakland headlining the first night of this year's edition of Brainsqueeze Fest. Full details on the trek are available below.

Proclaims Ghoul from the band's underground headquarters: "Loyal numbskulls, the Weapons Of Mosh Destruction Tour is rearing its ugly head again, and Ghoul is looking forward to burning your towns, raping your pets, and drinking your beer as we unmercifully bombard the West Coast of your United States on our way to the Tankcrimes Brainsqueeze in Oakland, California. In the unlikely event that you are lucky enough to survive the blitzkrieg assault of Iron Reagan and Occultist, you will be decapitated and disemboweled by Ghoul's razor sharp riffs, and after that, our razor sharp razors. All survivors will be brought back to the catacombs in cages, where Ghoul will keep you alive on a cocktail of morphine and energy drinks while we carve away chunks of your flesh to devour while you watch in horror... I may have said too much. Come to the show! Nothing bad will happen to you!" More...

The mighty GWAR is poised to return to the world of man as today the group announces the first leg of the massive "Madness at the Core of Time" world tour, in support of new album, "Battle Maximus," which is out September 17th on Metal Blade Records.

The tour, which features a completely brand-new show full of slavering creatures and deserving victims, is set to kick off October 2nd in Columbus, Ohio and runs through November 17th in Washington, DC. Tickets go on sale this Friday August 2nd.

Said verbose front-thing Oderus Urungus, "Our loyal slaves have been laboring ceaselessly to create the ultimate GWAR show, and for this they have received nothing but abuse and torment. I know our legions of loyal fans will be delighted to experience a whole new cast of ridiculous characters, all of whom shall meet exceedingly messy ends to the soundtrack of slaughter that our new album shall provide. Get ready world...GWAR is coming!"

GWAR shall be joined by deathcore heavyweights and label-mates Whitechapel, Richmond, VA thrashers Iron Reagan (featuring Municipal Waste singer Tony Foresta) and A Band of Orcs (which is actually a band of Orcs).

The tour comes after an intense lead-up period, feautring the debut of a GWAR beer and GWAR B-Q sauce, several mini-tours and convention appearances, the second season of Oderus on FEAR.net's sitcom Holliston, and finally the fourth annual GWAR-B-Q. Tickets and more information on the GWAR-B-Q can be found at this location. More...
