Kam Lee to Do Vocals on New Hateplow Album

Former DEATH/MASSACRE frontman Kam Lee has issued the following update:

"The rumors are true...

"Some of you have written me asking about the rumors of 'other' bands that I may be involved in this upcoming year. Other then DENIAL FIEND...

"Yes, the rumors are true! Not only will DENIAL FIEND record and release our debut album, 'They Rise', for Ibex Moon Records, but hopefully later will see the release of the SHADOWS WITH KNIVES EP, as well on Ibex Moon. SHADOWS WITH KNIVES is old-school style heavy metal mixed with death metal-style vokills. Like listening to those old metal bands like TROUBLE, TANK, WITCHFINDER GENERAL, MERCYFUL FATE, IRON MAIDEN, and BLACK SABBATH, only with the death grunt of me as well as the grindcore growls of Mark Odechuck of PAINEATER!

"Also... Yes, I am working with Matt Olivo of REPULSION on a new project now tentatively called: MONSTERSHOCK! This is currently in the now, and the band will be old-school death metal/grindcore in the same vein as early DEATH and REPULSION!

"And yes, too... I've been asked to lend my vokill talents for the new HATEPLOW album! I've been speaking with Phil [Fasciana] of MALEVOLENT CREATION, and he is gearing up to do the most hate-filled HATEPLOW album ever, and he has asked me to join in on the foul dark hatred!!

"So yes, I am planning on the year of 2007 to be a busy-ass year! But I'm willing to give 100% into bringing you the 'fans' the most insane, cult, sick-ass vokills you'll ever hear!!!"

Reunited Solstice Begins Work On New Material

South Florida death thrashers SOLSTICE have reunited and are working on new material. The lineup is the same one from the second album, "Pray" (1995), which is as follows:

Dennis Munoz - guitar
Garret Scott - bass
Christian Rudes - guitar, vocals

According to the band, SOLSTICE's current musical style is "more like the [self-titled debut from 1992] as opposed to 'Pray'. We originally wanted Rob Barrett [guitar] to do it but we know he is extremely busy with CANNIBAL CORPSE, so we didn't even ask. After a couple of months of digging around, we were able to find Rudes and he was into it so we went that way. He's an amazing player and his voice is super brutal now. We heard some songs he wrote, and wow, it was killer!"

Kevin Kinkade Pays Tribute To His Influences

COUNCIL OF THE FALLEN drummer Dave Kinkade (ex-DIVINE EMPIRE, MALEVOLENT CREATION) sent the following message to Blabbermouth.net:

"I'm currently in Holland with my wife and just this evening, had the honor of seeing MORBID ANGEL on tour in Tilburg.

"I just want to say that I'm sick of this bullshit where drummers and death metal musicians in general sit here online talking shit and more shit about each other and other bands BUT really don't EVER pay fucking tribute to the guys who got them into this to begin with.

"I just introduced my wife to my longtime friend Pete Sandoval (MORBID ANGEL) and Nick Barker [CRADLE OF FILTH, DIMMU BORGIR, BRUJERIA, BENEDICTION], who have always been huge idols of mine. We watched Pete from behind all night murder the drums and it was fucking FLAWLESS. He not only played perfect, BUT played the set faster, tighter and sicker than ever before.

"I've been a fan of extreme death metal for years, even before I started playing it for a living, and I have to fucking say, I've seen everyone in the business play, but NO ONE gets me going more than watching Pete and MORBID EVERY FUCKING TIME. Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL) made his comeback after a few years with MORBID and completely fucking demolished. Headspin fucking galore from the first to the last song. I LOVE THIS FUCKING BAND.

"Metal drummers... Learn where your roots come from if you have the balls to play death metal. Forget this two-foot blast shit... if it was not for Pete and members of the old school, you would never be playing this shit. Hail the true... fuck the fake... Know your roots."

Long-running Florida death metal warriors MALEVOLENT CREATION are currently in pre-production for their tenth studio album, "Doomsday X", due this fall via Nuclear Blast Records. The band are currently home writing and demoing material for the new CD, to be recorded in May and mixed in June. Recordings will take place at Mercury recording studios in Pompano Beach, FL with producer/engineer Gus Rios, with the mixing set to take place at Antfarm studis on Aaarhus, Denmark with producer Tue Madsen. "This will mark the first time in the band's career that an overseas producer has been brought in for mixing, but Tue's track record speaks for itself and we feel that we will be in good hands with Tue mixing the new album," the group write in a press release. "We need to have a massive production for this 10th record because this recording means a lot to us and we plan on touring for the next two years in support of it. All the bandmembers are contributing to the writing of this new album, so there will be a lot of different influences on this record. The music will be extremely heavy and insanely fast."

MALEVOLENT CREATION's current lineup includes original bandmembers Brett Hoffman on vocals, Jason Blachowicz on bass, Jon Rubin on guitar, Phil Fasciana on guitar and drumming powerhouse Tony Laureano (NILE, DIMMU BORGIR) on drums. Laureano has toured several times in the past with MALEVOLENT CREATION but now will make his debut studio recording with the band which is sure to be interesting. This lineup will also do all upcoming tours in support of "Doomsday X", which is expected to be released in September, followed by a massive European trek with DISGORGE and SKINLESS in support. Other touring options are being looked at as well. There is talk about a U.S. tour with BOLT THROWER in July-August, but nothing is confirmed yet.

In other news, MALEVOLENT CREATION recently returned from a six-week tour of Europe with BOLT THROWER, NIGHTRAGE and NECROPHAGIST and "would like to say that this tour was the best tour we have ever been part of in the last 15 years," the band write in a press release. "Most of the shows were sold out and BOLT THROWER is hands down the best band we have ever toured with and without their help, this tour would never have happened for us. We would truly like to thank BOLT THROWER's tour manager Graham and Jo, Martin, Baz, Gavin and Karl from the band for all their help. An extra special thanks goes out to Phil, Andy, Keith and Sabrine from BOLT THROWER's crew for all their help throughout the 'Those Still Loyal Over Europe Tour 2006'.You guys fucking rule!!!! Also, a big hello to our new friends in NIGHTRAGE and NECROPHAGIST for being so cool and making this the best tour yet!!!!"
