One of the most comprehensive southern metal documentaries ever made is coming in 2010. Appropriately dubbed "Slow Southern Steel," the 80+ minute film is executive produced by Karim Khan (I'm Better Than Everyone Records) and directed by Rwake vocalist CT and David Lipke with the additional and integral assistance of George Hancock, Alix Petrovich and Beer Wolf guitarist Christian Sweeney (who will be releasing a paperback version of the production) among many others.
"Slow Southern Steel" peers into the world of true southern metal/doom through live footage and personal interviews; CT's devout commitment/knowledge/love of the topic at hand bringing the movie to life in a way few first-time directors can. Said CT about the laborious undertaking: "I knew there were things I could get out of these bands that other film makers could not." Added Khan, "There's just something very appealing to me about taking unyielding heavy songs and adding a strong southern element to them."
At press time, the film was still being shot and thus far, featured bands will include (in alphabetical order): A Hanging, ASG, Baron Grod, Beaten Back To Pure, Beer Wolf, Black Skies, Black Tusk, Blackblood Division, Blood Of The Sun, Collapsar, Colossus, Cough, Dark Castle, Deadbird, Dead-I-On, Dixie Witch, Doomsayer, Eyehategod, Flesh Parade, Haarp, Hawg Jaw, HOD, Hope And Suicide, Hostile Apostle, House Of Lightning, In The Lurch, Jucifer, Ketea, Khann, Kylesa, Mala Suerte, Music Hates You, Parasytic, Queen Beast, Royal Thunder, Rwake, Seahag, SeaWitch, Sourvein, Speedealer, Spickle, Suplecs, Subrig Destroyer, The Devil And The Sea, The Dumps, The Roller, The Unbeheld, Vessel Of The Divine, Weedeater, Withered and Zoroaster.
"Slow Southern Steel" will make its debut at the renowned Little Rock Film Festival in May of 2010 (www.littlerockfilmfestival.org) where many of the bands featured will be in attendance. Additional festival previews will follow.
The DVD edition is slated to be released in 2011 via fast-growing, vinyl-only (and now DVD) Chicago imprint, I'm Better Than Everyone Records.

2008 has become an extremely exciting year in the history of Century Media Records, one of the world's most respected independent homes for heavy music, as the label is celebrating its 20th anniversary!
The company's Anniversary year started off with an extremely successful, first-ever yard sale/party at the Century Media office in Dortmund (Germany) in June, where several hundred guests partied out on exclusive live shows by Angel Dust and Turisas. A video with impressions from the event can be seen at this location. A photo gallery for this event can be viewed here.
To further celebrate this anniversary Century Media Records will release the very special 2CD compilation "Covering 20 Years Of Extremes" on September 15th in Europe and on October 14th in North America. The various artists covers-release includes 32 mostly exclusive recordings and will be available in stores for the price of one CD. Sticking to the "keep it in the family" slogan, CM approached their artists about covering songs from other acts within the label's repertoire and the response from the musicians was overwhelming.
Some choices were obvious and homages to the bands that influenced them, others were inspired picks. This combination ended up leading to a heavily entertaining and truly special final result across all sub-genres of heavy music.
Here is the tracklisting: More...
Eyehategod will play a show to celebrate their 20th anniversary in New Orleans on August 29. Here are the details:
EYEHATEGOD 20th ANNIVERSARY on
AUGUST 29th - KATRINA's 3rd ANNIVERSARY -
at ONE-EYED JACK's - NEW ORLEANS, LA.
W/ HELLKONTROLL & CROWBAR
Here's the official press release:
"New Orleans own EYEHATEGOD have served up 20 years and 7 albums of original, painful and misanthropic feedback laden Hardcore Blues to an ever increasing doomed climate of world-wide despair and degradation and have absolutely managed to have fun doing it. Multiple tours of Europe, the USA and even Japan have seen these southern gentlemen 'Preaching the End-Time Message' and influencing new generations of hedonistic roustabouts to spread their Rock-n-Roll nihilism since 1988. The band will play at One-Eyed Jack's on the 3rd anniversary of Katrina, Friday August 29th with CROWBAR and Hellkontroll". -MIKE IX

Keith Carman of Canada's Exclaim! magazine recently conducted an interview with vocalist Mike Williams (EYEHATEGOD) of ARSON ANTHEM, the hardcore punk-influenced project also featuring drummer Hank Williams III (ASSJACK, SUPERJOINT RITUAL), guitarist Phil Anselmo (PANTERA, DOWN, SUPERJOINT RITUAL), and bassist Collin Yeo. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow:
Exclaim!: Do you have any aspirations for ARSON ANTHEM?
Mike: I'd like to inspire people. I can't say we're the first band to be doing this because there are a lot of bands that play heavy hardcore like a throwback to that era. I want to at least inspire people to seek out those older bands and do some research. That was such a great time for me growing up. I had no responsibility, running free listening to that type of music and riding my skateboard. Hopefully people who didn't live through it can do it vicariously. We have future plans and some new songs to record but first we just wanted to put out the record. Overall though, this is just about fun. The people who take it too seriously and say it doesn't sound like "Vulgar Display Of Power" don't get it.
Exclaim!: There's always backlash against a "new band" from established artists though.
Mike: Just because of the members of the band, people are gonna dig to find something to start an issue with. Phil's already getting the brunt of things. They kick down on him for no reason sometimes. It seems like some people don't even listen to the record before they judge. There's prejudice. I don't understand it. He gets these people who are jealous, hating on him or something. Some people hate for no reason.
Exclaim!: He is a magnet for controversy though, sometimes by his own actions.
Mike: Right. Sometimes controversy can be exciting but sometimes it's a pain in the ass. Sometimes I'd rather have chaos in my life than be bored but it can become too much. With the Internet now, everything is taken as fact. Rumours start and it's taken as truth, starting controversy. It's ridiculous. I don't get people who just bitch all of the time about what they hate. If they're doing that, they're bringing attention to it. Why waste your time? If you're gonna put energy towards something, support it. If you don't like it, ignore it.
Exclaim!: What do you have to say to detractors?
Mike: We just want you to listen and judge for yourself. We have a right to put out any type of record we want. Freedom of speech. I'm happy to be doing this now but at times I wish this band had been together in the '80s. It would have been taken in a different light. ARSON ANTHEM isn't that complicated of a concept. It's just raw, in-your-face music. I love a lot of different stuff but it's great to put out this record and say, "Hey, this is the kind of music that I love."
ARSON ANTHEM — the new project featuring Philip Anselmo (DOWN, ex-PANTERA) on guitar, Mike Williams (EYEHATEGOD) on vocals, Hank Williams III (SUPERJOINT RITUAL, ASSJACK) on drums and Collin Yeo on bass — will release its self-titled debut EP on February 19 via Housecore Records; a label created by Anselmo focusing on Phil's side projects and other artists he believes in. The track listing for the effort is as follows:
01. Year Of The Fork
02. Doomed Morale
03. Bunker Life
04. Hammer Them Out
05. Wrecked Like Clockwork
06. Cops Shoot Coke
07. The Avoider
08. Sri Lankan Medication
After losing everything in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Mike Williams moved into Philip's spare apartment. The two spent countless hours listening to Philip's collection of early hardcore bands; the timing was perfect to remedy this cabin fever. They began jamming with III and Collin Yeo, and this proved to be the crowning accession to complete this exploit.
ARSON ANTHEM's mission is to re-introduce the roots of painful amplification, raw production, and a TRUE "fuck-all" attitude to a movement within a new generation that's lost the meaning of less complicated ventures. The byway is to be similar to the original brutality of bands like NEGATIVE APPROACH, POISON IDEA, HELLHAMMER, DISCHARGE and VOID, amongst others. ARSON ANTHEM will never give way to what the societal masses want them to conform to, as by example their previous musical incarnations.
