On the thirteen-year anniversary of Impaled's "The Dead Shall Dead Remain" debut, the group will be releasing a re-recording entitled "The Dead Still Dead Remain."
Long tangled in legal limbo, the music from "The Dead Shall Dead Remain" has been unavailable on CD for over a decade. The re-recording dodges those legal hurdles and puts the music back in print.
"The Dead Still Dead Remain" features recording and mixing by Vinnie Wojno, famous for his work with Testament. Impaled and Wojno worked for three years to get the recording they wanted. "It simply sounds better, no matter how you slice it. And we surely do slice it!" says guitarist Jason Kocol.
Impaled assures fans that the music is faithful to the original. It features the return of vocalist Leon del Muerte, who says, "it was like the last thirteen years of backstabbing and spitefulness never happened!"

Cattle Decapitation has issued the following update, revealing details of their new, upcoming album:
"We’re FINALLY done with all the finishing touches of our new album and we feel we’ve finally done it! Sonically, the band has managed to finally capture and accentuate its live intensity that we’ve become known for and has created one hell of an album from start to epic finish! Conceptually, its misanthropy shall go unmatched. This is it, humans... ferocity at its finest.
"The album is called 'The Harvest Floor,' a title Travis has been kicking around in his head and working towards for the last 2 albums! The actual title refers to the area of a slaughterhouse where the animal (of course in our case it always means the HUMAN) begins the agonizing process of death, usually done with a bolt to the forehead or a slice to the throat. 'The Harvest Floor' is a fitting title for an album laden in gore and the anti-human metaphors and sentiments CATTLE DECAPITATION fans have grown to know and love. Artwork by Wes Benscoter shows the outside of a large slaughterhouse/factory of doom and gloom with the general public being herded inside to meet their demise. The inside of the album layout reveals what’s really inside that slaughterhouse: our misanthropic heroes of GORE (not core) at another hard day of work! Combined with the amazing artwork and conceptually brutal layout, The Harvest Floor also contains an enhanced portion which sports an I-pod ready documentary titled 'Pandemic: The Damnation Epic – The Making of The Harvest Floor' which, simply put, makes 'The Harvest Floor' an apocalyptic multimedia epic!"
Here is the tracklisting for "The Harvest Floor":
1. The Gardeners of Eden
2. A Body Farm
3. We are Horrible People
4. Tooth Enamel & Concrete
5. The Ripe Beneath the Rind
6. The Product Alive
7. In Axetasy
8. Into the Public Bath
9. The Harvest Floor
10. Regret & the Grave
No strangers to guest appearances, CATTLE DECAPITATION has enlisted some old friends for guest vocals including Ross Sewage (Impaled/Ludicra) and Dino Sommese (Dystopia/Asunder). The band has also announced that there is a special appearance by Jarboe (Swans), lending her beautifully haunting voice to the epic death dirge "The Harvest Floor." Jackie Perez Gratz (Grayceon/Amber Asylum) graces a couple tracks with her electric cello and Los Angeles noisician John Wiese also lends his electronic/atmospheric expertise to the album further separating the band from the typical "cookie-cutter" approach applied all too often by today’s extreme acts.
FUCK THE FACTS have recently announced a two-week Canadian tour in support of their latest full-length, "Disgorge Mexico."

California gore metal band Impaled has issued the following tour update on their MySpace page:
"Maryland Death Fest was crushing. Impaled had a fantastic time, seeing many great underground bands and being welcomed by a crowd of hardened G.O.R.E. Corps soldiers beating the absolute shit out of each other. Thanks to the fest and all the people that came out!
Follow that up with a couple shows with Swashbuckle, Call the Paramedics, Ex-Dementia, Trasher, Bitchslicer, and others, and we had a great send off from the states.
Now we're in Amsterdam, spending a couple days taking in the sights before we join up for the tour with Origin and Hour of Penance. I know what you're thinking... Amsterdam. We must be getting really baked on space cake, right? Well, wrong. We didn't come here for the pot. Impaled are not hippies. We came here for the heroin, LSD, and cocaine."
ORIGIN premiered their video for "Finite," the first from their brand new album, "Antithesis," yesterday on Headbanger's Blog, the online forum for MTV's 'Headbanger's Ball' (international / non-US viewers can view the video on YouTube). The "Finite" video will see its televised premiere on today's (May 24) edition of Headbanger's Ball on MTV2.
The video was shot in Brooklyn, NY with director David Brodsky for MyGoodEye. ORIGIN is currently on tour in support of Antithesis, rounding out their U.S. run with labelmates DYING FETUS over the weekend followed by a month-long headlining tour of Europe. ORIGIN will also be performing at a number of festivals while in Europe including Hellfest, Protzen Open Air, Neurotic Death Fest, Death Feast Fest, and more.
ORIGN released "Antithesis" in early April, breaking in at #21 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Audio samples taken from "Antithesis" can be heard now via the band's official MySpace and this media player.

Oakland, California-based extreme metallers IMPALED have posted their video for the song "Choke On It", taken from the band's 2002 album "Mondo Medicale". The clip, which was edited and directed by Raul Varela, can be viewed below.
IMPALED's fourth album, "The Last Gasp", was issued in Europe on November 5, 2007 via Candlelight and in North America on November 6, 2007 through Willowtip. The CD was made available in Mexico and Latin America by EMF Records, featuring liner notes in Spanish and a previously unreleased bonus track.
The cover artwork for "The Last Gasp" was created by the band and is about an accurate representation of their brand of medical metal as one could expect. It features scream-queen and horror auteur Shannon Lark, the woman behind the Chainsaw Mafia horror message board, the Living Dead Girlz zombie dance troupe, and the Viscera Series Film Fest. According to IMPALED bassist Ross Sewage, "Shannon was awesome to work with, mostly because she's willing to lie in a puddle of guts and vomit for upwards of an hour."
IMPALED guitarist Jason Kocol said of the art, "This cover will make you shit out your mouth and wish you were never born." More...
