Le Mouv Channel Featuring Metal Bands

Kaotoxin Records has announced the recording of what could be dubbed as being "The French Peel Sessions" as, for the first time in France, the state-owned national radio network, Radio France, have started an ongoing series of "live in the studio" recordings for nationwide broadcasting on their "Le Mouv" channel.

Earlier this month, Radio France debuted "Le Metal sur Le Mouv," which is hosted by Tanguy Blum and airs every Sunday night. The show is focused on underground metal and has already aired the likes of Ad Patres, Deep In Hate, Drawers, Insain, Nolentia and Miserable Failure so far.

Tanguy reached out to artists on Kaotoxin's roster to record two of these "live in the studio" shows. The first one, with France's Calvaiire, has already been recorded and aired at this location. The next session will feature Unsu, Infected Society and Miserable Failure. This will be followed by and audio/video broadcast of Ad Patres performing live.

For the first session, plans are Unsu will record 20 minutes worth of new material from their debut full-length which is currently being mixed. Infected Society will record another 20 minutes worth of live material, while Miserable Failure will record a live rendition of their "Hope" EP in its entirety along with additional tunes from their current and forthcoming releases.

The band will also feature guest drumming by none less than Benighted/F Stands For Fuck You drummer-extraordinaire, Kevin Foley. The second session will see Ad Patres perform their current set live in the studio. Recording sessions are scheduled for June.

Nolentia Tour Underway In France

French grind-benders Nolentia have started the second leg of their 2013 roadkill titled "Three To Grind Them All" in support of their second full-length, "May the Hand that Holds the Match that Will Set this World on Fire Be Blessed above All," released earlier this year through Kaotoxin Records.

The first leg took place this summer with fellow French grinders Warfuck and Department Of Correction and went from July 26th through August 3rd, taking the band to three countries (France, Belgium and Switzerland). The trek saw the band open for Brutal Truth and take part in France's Xtreme Fest alongside Suicidal Tendencies, Dying Fetus and many more.

Now teaming with fellow Kaotoxin grinding units, Austrian retarded Goregrind trio VxPxOxAxAxWxAxMxC and French drunktards Infected Society, Nolentia has announced the second leg of the tour - which began December 9th and will conclude on Dec. 17th and wind its way via France and Switzerland again.

After the six-date trek, Nolentia will make an appearance at the inaugural edition of Xtreme Fest, which also features Suicidal Tendencies, Dying Fetus, Municipal Waste and more. Visit Xtreme Fest for details.

This summer, Nolentia released the official music video for the track "More to Fear," taken from "May the Hand that Holds the Match that Will Set this World on Fire be Blessed above All." The video is the first in a three-part series of individual video that, once completed, will be compiled into a single cinematic rendition of Nolentia-spawned madness. Check out "More to Fear" at this location.

"May the Hand that Holds the Match that Will Set this World on Fire be Blessed above All" was released in February on Kaotoxin Records. The album is available as a digital download at site.

Pit Stories: Reverse Sexual Harassment

Each week we chat up bands and fans from all corners of metaldom to get their favorite pit stories from live shows. This week guitarist Fack of French death grinders Infected Society shares two memories from the pit, including the following tale of reverse sexual harassment:

When we played in Finland, with some of my previous bands, the boss from our label had a ferocious argument with a guy from the audience because of of the guy’s gorgeous girlfriend. Why? Not because his girlfriend was seriously looking after the label’s boss, but because he was trying to refuse to fuck her. Her boyfriend, a colossus, was really angry someone could refuse to fuck his girlfriend. So the label’s boss had to explain that he was married, with children. But it seems it wasn’t a good excuse enough to the angry colossus, so he had to explain, again, that “no, seriously, you’re girlfriend’s absolutely sexy and beautiful, but I’m married, with children and that, despite his girlfriend’s so hot, he can’t cheat on his wife” to save his life.

Another one? Well. With one of my previous bands, which I won’t name, the singer was so drunk at a gig that we had to play the same song twice because it was on the set list and the singer wouldn’t believe we were just finished playing it, having no memories of the few previous minutes. The crowd was dead laughing, such were we! Encore fait!

Infected Society recently premiered the new song "Victims of Procreation" online, which can be heard at this location. The band will be releasing a debut MCD through Kaotoxin Records this year, and more details on the band can be found via the Infected Society Facebook profile.

Feel free to share your favorite show experiences below, and check back in again next Tuesday as we share more mosh pit stories from metal bands.

Infected Society Inks Deal With Kaotoxin

Frech act Infected Society has officially inked a new deal with Kaotoxin Records for the release of an as-yet-untitled debut MCD in early May. Metalunderground.com will be streaming a new track from the release titled "Victims of Procreation" online tomorrow. Kaotoxin commented on the band's history:

"After having played together in various extreme bands for over a decade, Fack (ex-Yyrkoon, ex-Drowning, ex-Decline Of Humanity, ex-Burgul Torkhaïn, ex-Ashura...) and Brédin (Decline Of Humanity, ex-DSK, ex-Tridus Elasticus, ex-Altered Beast...) decided to form a more extreme project of their own late 2010. Infected Society was born.

"Focusing on a very fresh blend of old-school Napalm Death, scum era, meets modern grindcore, Infected Society has recorded what can be felt at the first listen as being a totally straight-ahead grindcore debut MCD but which, for the lover of the genre, will prove being more diverse, fresh and catchy than most of all the copycats releases of an over-populated scene nowadays, adding fastcore, hardcore and thrash influences to their blasting madness.

"Mastered at the famous Walnut Groove studio ran by ex-Carnival In Coal member, Alex, the, as of now yet untitled, debut MCD, first release of the multi-album deal signed with KAOTOXIN records, will be released early May through KAOTOXIN records to coincide with a set of gigs Infected Society is to play with ex-Drowning members and friends: France's dark doom masters Eibon."
