Austin punk hangout Red 7 hosted D.R.I. the night before, a band that coincidentally hugely influenced Municipal Waste. Although “Land Phil” Hall plays in Municipal Waste, it was his love for death metal, not crossover that brought him into Austin this night. This time he joined with his brother Josh “Hallhammer” Hall and new guitarist Brandon Ellis in support of the band’s latest full-length recording “From Wisdom To Baked" on an Austin stop that is part of a Metal Underground.com sponsored tour.
Before hearing songs of bud monsters and weed-induced murderous rampages, three opening bands sparked up the festivities. San Antonio brutal death squad Flesh Hoarder initiated the melee. The group was short two members due to it having taken on the show on short notice. Ryan Sylvie of Whore of Bethlehem filled in for Nick Moreno and the band played without guitarist Angel Tarin. It’s been a couple of years since Sylvie fronted Scattered Remains, but he was up to the task, as was the band. The group played a mix of slamming rhythms, guttural voices, quick cymbal strikes and down-tempo riffs in the vein of Immolation and Morbid Angel. Songs like “Ejaculating on the Faces of the Aborted” kept their set utterly offensive. More...

California's Unique Leader Records has issued the following announcement about recruiting a new vocalist:
"So as some of you know our previous vocalist Cameron Porras decided to step up and handle guitar for us along with Joel Guernsey. One of the main reasons for this is because he helped contribute a lot to the writing for both the new and old albums along with Joel and thought it was best to have the 2 playing guitar and to seek a new vocalist.
"That being said we have found a new vocalist. We would like to welcome Riley McShane of Son Of Aurelius and Continuum to the band. He is by far a great addition to the band and we are stoked to have him be apart of it.
"In addition to the line-up change we have decided to throw up a pre-production track for you to enjoy and to check out what we have been doing the past few months. The album should be all finished up by the first week of December and out by early 2014 (February) after that we'll be heading out on a full Us/Canadian tour.
"The album art, track list, and everything else will be coming out soon after this. Thanks for your support everyone and see you guys soon." More...
Inanimate Existence has checked in with the following announcement about lineup changes within the band:
"Line-up update: our vocalist Cameron who is also one of the 2 composers of the band has decided to make the conversion back to guitar along side our guitarist and main composer Joel Guernsey.
"Cameron will still be doing a majority of the lyrics and also vocals on our new album as well as live. We will be looking for a new vocalist soon... in the mean time if you want to make a tryout video you're more then welcome to.
"Here is a track from Cameron and Ron's old band that Cameron played and recorded on. Thanks for your continued support. We'll see you guys soon." More...

Plus, adding Inanimate Existence and Vale of Pnath to the lineup, as well as several other sick bands on select dates, makes this tour that much more crushing!

The years of hard work and support from everyone that has helped us along the way really speaks volumes for the death metal culture that we’re lucky to have!” More...
