Internal Bleeding Signs To Unique Leader Records

Unique Leader Records is pleased to welcome New York-based death metal legion Internal Bleeding to the label's expanding roster of audio severity. Unique Leader comments:

"For over twenty years, Internal Bleeding has been at the forefront of the underground death metal scene, boasting a relentless DIY work ethic, consistently intense live performances and a commitment to composing some of the heaviest music possible, their breakdown-laden approach directly responsible for the establishment of an entire subgenre of death metal, aptly titled 'slam' (a term they began using as early as 1992).

"Founded in 1991 by guitarist Chris Pervelis following the demise of original band, Autumn Reign, it all began with a case of 300 blank tapes reportedly 'found' at a local university. The tapes provided the inspiration to set up a four-track to capture The One Dollar Demo. The following year, Internal Bleeding recorded their Invocation Of Evil demo, which went on to sell an impressive 5500+ copies through now-defunct Wild Rags Records. The band returned to the studio to track another demo in early 1994. The resulting Perpetual Degradation remains a certified classic in the annals of death metal. More...

Internal Bleeding Announces New EP

Internal Bleeding is proud to announce the band has completed a 5-song EP, which is a teaser and lead up to forthcoming full-length “Imperium.” The following press release was also issued:

"The New York based band has been slugging it out in the industry since 1991 and have been credited with the invention of “slam-metal” as well as being one of the pioneers of the New York death metal scene.

"'Imperium' is the culmination of 20+ years of working, writing, playing and refining the Internal Bleeding sound. The definition of Imperium is 'supreme power or absolute domination,' and with these songs Internal Bleeding is set to dominate the scene once again. The much-anticipated EP has already caught the attention of many industry heavy hitters and the band will soon have label support behind them once again in support of their full-length release."

“By far, this is the best IB release to date,” states guitarist Chris Pervelis, “From a musical standpoint, it has all the hallmarks of the classic Internal Bleeding sound—heaviness, groove and catchiness–but we pushed ourselves and expanded it into some new directions, without violating the integrity of our music. From a production standpoint, Joe Cincotta at Full force nailed it. He finally got the sound we've been looking for—clear, precise and above all heavy. Having Matt Kourie do the mastering also helped a great deal, as he eschews the overly compressed, thin sound that is so prevalent today for a thicker sound that the listener will feel as well as hear.” More...

The Goregrowler's Ball 5, Day 2

Day one of The Goregrowler’s Ball came and went without any hitches. Day two promised even more gore-gurgling delights. This day started earlier than Friday’s 5:30 start time. Originally scheduled for a 1:30 start time, the promoter pushed the start time back to 2:30. Prog death artists, Vex took this early slot, which we unfortunately missed. Comatose Records was on full display, as it was throughout the weekend, with Atrocious Abnormality. Said band played a brutal slab of unmerciful, brutal death metal featuring label head, Steve Green.

Ibex Moon Records, owned by John McEntee of Incantation, also made its presence known on the second day. Cardiac Arrest produced grimy, churning death metal in the vein of Autopsy and Grave. The Chicago act switched between rotten-limb-stiffening slow jams and all-out-blast fests provided by new drummer Nick Gallichio. Adam Scott, Tom Knizner, Dave Holland joined low and mid-range scathing voices to narrate grisly tales from the group’s three recordings. Set highlights include the frantic pace of “Insanity’s Grip,” and the ominous, full-moon-blooming groove of “Affliction of the Beast.”

Fellow Ibex Moon label and former tour mates, Hod took the hell-raising chaos outside. Hod was in fine form, performing its perfected blend of death, thrash, black, speed and all-things-metal (“We’re Hod and we play fucking metal”) style. The Central Texas act showcased material from its sole album, “Serpent.” The said album has been out for two years, so one would expect new material. Locals familiar with Hod knew the band well, so their new songs came without surprise. However, those from out of town delighted in hearing new tracks such as “Den of Wolves.” Look for a new record in 2012. More...

Internal Bleeding Guitarist Chris Pervelis is back

Long Island, NY-based death metallers Internal Bleeding have been rejoined by founding guitarist Chris Pervelis following the exit of Frank Buffalino.

Commented lead singer Jerry Lowe: "As most people know Chris left the band physically last may. On every other level Chris has been there for us, so it seems only right that he rejoins the band and will be playing live performances immediately or as soon as they are available. We are happy to welcome him back."

Chris elaborated on the reasons for his return: "I tried. I really tried to walk away from Internal Bleeding, but I couldn’t. I missed my brothers in the band, I missed writing the music, I missed having a platform on which to speak about my views and most of all, I felt completely dead inside. It's good to be back and I am looking forward to once again contributing to our long, proud history."

Internal Bleeding's latest CD, "Onward to Mecca", was released last month via Olympic Recordings. The group's first studio release in five years was recorded at Full Force Studios and engineered by Terrance Hobbs (Suffocation). The follow-up to 1999's "Driven to Conquer" marks the recording debut with the band of new singer Jerry Lowe (ex-Bodyfarm).
