Ravage Announces Tour Date Cancellations

Singer Al Firicano, of the thrash metal band, Ravage, has issued the following update regarding some tour date cancellations:

"Ravage has unfortunately been forced to cancel appearances at The KC Power Fest and the August 18th show at Volume 11 in Raleigh, NC (this show will still be taking place, but without Ravage). Due to issues with the Ravage mobile, we've been forced to wait for repairs to take place in Missouri, so we will be delayed significantly and will have to pick up the tour in Allentown PA on August 20th - that will be the next show. We'd like to sincerely apologize to the fans and promoters for this and we hope to add a Kansas City show and a Raleigh NC show back to the tour before it is all over. Details will be announced when available." More...

Jesse Pintado Memorial Album Free For Download

Earache Records is making available for free downloading an mp3 album in honour of the late Jesse Pintado. The album, which is entitled ‘In Memory Of Jesse Pintado’, is a mixture of Jesse’s most well-known songs recorded for both Napalm Death and Terrorizer during his time as guitarist for the bands. Dan Tobin, label manager of Earache Records, said this in regards to Jesse’s sudden passing:

"Jesse was one of the most genuine people I ever met, extremely friendly and easy-going. Its such a tragic waste. I’ll remember him as part of what is my all time favourite Earache record, Terrorizer’s ‘World Downfall’, which is simply a grindcore masterpiece, and for all his amazing work with Napalm Death that I was honoured to be a small part of. I don’t think Jesse’s passing has been recognised as the huge loss it is – the worlds of extreme music and grindcore/death metal have lost a true pioneer. We owe him a massive debt and for that I’ll always remember the guy fondly."

The track-listing for the album, which can be downloaded here, is as follows:

01. Ripped To Shreds (Terrorizer)
02. The World Keeps Turning (Napalm Death)
03. Throwaway (Napalm Death)
04. Storm Of Stress (Terrorizer)
05. Upwards And Uninterested (Napalm Death)
06. I Abstain (Napalm Death)
07. Corporation Pull-In (Terrorizer)
08. Purist Realist (Napalm Death)
09. Remain Nameless (Napalm Death)
10. Inner Incineration (Napalm Death)

Napalm Death Comment on Ex-guitarist's Death

The following message has been posted on the official NAPALM DEATH web site:

"The band are shocked and saddened by the sudden death of Jesse Pintado this past Sunday. Please expect a statement shortly. Jesse Pintado was a member of NAPALM DEATH from 1989-2004."

In a recent interview with Rockdetector.com, Pintado spoke about his final days in NAPALM DEATH.

"The departure was basically due to a variety of reasons," he said. "We shared a house together, we toured together, we were always together, but people move on. Along the way there was a little rough bumps, though I don't know. In my situation it got to the point where I needed a little fresh start. I'm still good friends with the guys; there's no animosity there, we're all cool, and they're happy with what I'm doing." More...

Grindcore Pioneers Terrorizer Reunited

"This is a big step in the process for everyone involved with TERRORIZER and we are pleased to announce the great news," commented TERRORIZER guitarist Jesse Pintado (formerly of NAPALM DEATH).

The new TERRORIZER incarnation will consist of one half of its original lineup. Pintado will grind out the guitars and Pete Sandoval (MORBID ANGEL) will play some of the fastest drumming in recorded history. Introducing themselves to the TERRORIZER fold are guitarist Tony Norman (MORBID ANGEL, MONSTROSITY) and vocalist Tony Militia (RESISTANT CULTURE). Many people have asked why Oscar Garcia (NAUSEA) and David Vincent (MORBID ANGEL) are not returning. Simply put, Oscar is no longer interested in TERRORIZER and wants to focus on his own band NAUSEA.

Regarding what the fans can expect from the group's long-awaited new release, Pintado said, "It will be different but in the TERRORIZER vein." There are reportedly talks of introducing classical piano parts, industrial noise parts and chants on the new record. A 13-minute-plus song is in the works as well as some of the fastest drumming ever put to tape. Recording sessions are set to begin in January 2006. A late spring release is tentatively expected.

Jesse PIntado of NAPALM DEATH/TERRORIZER recently recorded several new tracks with tribal grindcore/metal band Resistant Culture. The tracks are like a mix of NAPALM DEATH, DISCHARGE, MINISTRY, AND BOTH THROWER woven into traditional Native American chanting, flutes, and rattle.

This band has deep roots back to the beginning of grindcore in L.A. Originally called RESISTANT MILITIA, the band was combining punk and metal music and subculture back during the early days of FEAR FACTORY, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, TERRRORIZER, ETC. It has survived many line-ups and over the years and now has come full circle with the addition of several tracks with long time friend Jesse Pintado.
