"So recently all of us dudes from MetalSucks, Metal Injection, and 1000 Knives were sitting around smoking peyote out of a dead mule’s skull (y’know, like you do) when someone was all, Dudes! Our CMJ Showcase last year was pretty much THE BEST PARTY EVER. All of the bands were AMAZING. Skeletonwitch SLAYED. Kvelertak played their first NYC show EVER and DESTROYED. Hell, we wrecked that joint so bad that we weren’t even invited back this year, and one of us actually had to move to the other side of the country just to hide! How are we ever gonna top it???“ And then someone else was like, What if we got PIG DESTROYER to play THEIR FIRST NEW YORK-AREA SHOW IN MORE THAN THREE YEARS?
"And so that’s what we did!
"You read that correctly: Pig Destroyer, the best grindcore band on the face of the planet, are going to play their first and ONLY New York-area show in more than three years at The Third Annual MetalSucks / Metal Injection / 1000 Knives CMJ Showcase on Thursday, October 18 at Public Assembly in Brooklyn — just days before the release of their incredible new album, Book Burner! And they ain’t comin’ alone: support will be provided by KEN Mode, Early Graves, and Encrust. Holy moly, did we put together a ridiculously great show or what? You’re all very welcome. More...
The Florida death metal ministers in Obituary are set to kick off their first North American headlining tour in over three years this weekend. Brought to you by Rock The Nation and sponsored by Fender, the Carnival Of Death Tour 2012 will commence this Saturday in Orlando, Florida and tear its way through nearly two dozen cities. Further brutality will come from reunited death metallers Broken Hope as well as Decrepit Birth, Jungle Rot, and Encrust.
Obituary is also currently writing the follow up to the "Darkest Day" full-length, released in 2009 via Candlelight Records, with official details to be announced in the coming weeks.
The Carnival Of Death Tour marks Obituary’s first full North American tour run as a four-piece with death metal alumnus Terry Butler (Death, Six Feet Under, Massacre, Denial Fiend) on bass. For this trek, the band — vocalist John Tardy, drummer Donald Tardy, guitarist Trevor Peres and Butler — compiled a special fan-generated set list that will delve deep into the back catalog to include tunes predominantly off the group's first three full-lengths: "Slowly We Rot," "Cause Of Death," and "The End Complete."
Comments Donald Tardy: “We are super excited about the start of the Carnival Of Death Tour. It has been a long time since we toured extensively across the US and Canada. For the first time we went to our fans and asked their help in picking the songs for this ‘classic set’ and it really turned out to be a great set list. Most of these songs we have not played in over a decade and some of them we’ve never performed onstage so the anticipation is killing me! It's was quite the challenge to re-learn songs from 20 years ago but we are ready to blow our old fans away and hopefully gain some new ones. The scene has been set, the fans have selected the songs and the time has come to hit the road and kick off this Carnival.... send in the Clowns!” More...

"We couldn't be happier with this tour,” said Pryzynski. “Some of these bands are the reason we do this and it's really an honor to share the stage with all of these bands.”
Encrust has shared the stage with the likes of everyone from Red Fang and Corrosion of Conformity to Goatwhore and Exhumed. "Here's an example," says Pyrzynski. "Chris broke his hand punching Ryan in the head because that's what they do live. They get wild, and it's always unpredictable—even for the rest of us on stage."
Encrust's upcoming tour dates are as follows: More...
