Winds Of Plague Enters the Studio

WINDS OF PLAGUE have now entered Sound Temple Studios in Ranch Cucamonga, CA with producer Daniel Castleman, who worked with the band on “Decimate the Weak,” to record “The Great Stone War.” WINDS OF PLAGUE is also part of the summer’s most extreme package tour, SUMMER SLAUGHTER, alongside Suffocation, Necrophagist, Darkest Hour and others.

Vocalist Johnny Plague comments, “This week we lock ourselves inside Sound Temple Studios in Rancho Cucamonga, CA with the up and coming recording wizard Daniel Castleman. We will leave a month later drained and beat but with a new 12 track full length named The Great Stone War. This is the first time we have had to create an album from scratch so we took advantage of the situation and built a themed, well constructed album compared to Decimate The Weak which I feel was more of a collection of songs.” More...

This record will be devastating.”

The Red Shore Pulls Out of Summer Slaughter Tour

Melbourne’s The Red Shore has decided to pull out of the inaugural Australian Summer Slaughter Tour, scheduled for March 2009.

Here is an official statement from the band:

“We regret to inform our Australian fans and also the fans of the Summer Slaughter tour, that due to various reasons, The Red Shore will no longer be able to participate in the tour. Throughout the last few months we felt that certain circumstances pertaining to the tour did not suit the band and this coupled with some ongoing medical problems with some of our members and some financial constraint simply means that opting out of this tour was the best thing for the band at this point in time. We hope you will all still go to the shows and support both Aussie Metal and Metal worldwide. Thanks.”

Local openers will be announced on Monday, February 23, after the Battle Of Bands results have been decided.

The Australian Summer Slaughter 2009 Tour features Necrophagist, Dying Fetus, Aborted and The Faceless, plus the local openers to be announced. They are playing on the following dates:

Fri March 13th @ The Manning Bar , Sydney (Lic / AA)

Kataklysm Offers North American Tour Update

Kataklysm vocalist Maurizio Iacono recently issued the following update from the road while on the second annual "Death by Decibels" tour:

"Today is a day off in Hollywood, CA and we might go check out that cock rock cover band STEEL PANTHER tonight at the Key Club. Speaking of the Key Club, it was a great show yesterday! The crowd was on fire for all the bands and it was great to see all the fans chanting the lyrics to 'Prevail'. The album is obviously doing well and the tour has been doing great. Highlights so far have been Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, all the Texas dates, Los Angeles and the sold out show in San Diego at the Soma.

"We're having a blast with the Norwegians in KEEP OF KALESSIN, the Swiss folk fuckers in ELUVEITIE and our old friends in DYING FETUS. It's been a great ride so far and you if you haven't seen this package yet do yourself a favor and don't miss it! It's really a killer diverse metal package and a good time. Thanks again to all of you for the great support, we know these are hard times in the country and having so many people come out means a lot to us and all the bands. Cheers!"

Kevin Talley Talks About New Daath Album

Kevin Talley talked with Sickdrummer.com about his experience working with Daath on their latest album:

'The new Daath was recorded by Jason Suecof and Mark Lewis (they've done Bury your Dead, Devildriver, Chimaira) down in Florida. Finally, I have been able to capture a killer drum sound with them! Utilizing real acoustics, like recording Dying Fetus's Destroy the Opposition. So this drum sound isn't all fake like 90% of the other stuff these days.

"Daath just released new music this past week and I am very stoked about the great response we've gotten. I wasn't really a part of the last Daath record, but I helped write this entire record. It really took me back to the DF days, when I could really connect with other writers who are musically capable and able to handle an asshole drummer.

"The new Daath drum parts are very similar to my old school drumming except, in my opinion, more innovative. I have always been a drummer who writes drum parts to complement, not copy, guitar riffs. This is why I didn't write well with Chimaira. They simply wanted me to copy the riffs which is boring and overdone these days.

"Now more than ever, I have taken to a very unique writing style. It is, however, very very subtle. It's like the first main riff in Sepultura's Chaos A.D. You may think the kick drums follow the riff, but they don't... The beat is different and and adds a ton of groove by complementing the riff. To notice it, you must listen to the riff and then turn off the music. Next, hum the riff in your head and imagine what beat YOU would write to that same riff. Now, turn the music back on and see if the beats match up. Sometimes they will, but mostly they won't. This is not the case when you listen to Fear Factory or Chimaira, which are more straight forward drum parts. Although I added as many good drum parts I could in Chimaira, my drumming on the self titled album is pretty average IMO."

Kataklysm Plans Headlining N. American Tour

Quebec’s KATAKLYSM has been creating quite a stir at this year’s Summer Slaughter tour with their show stealing performances all over the North America. Now after years of hard work and other successful tours, which most recently included runs with bands like DIMMU BORGIR and CHIMAIRA, they will finally play a headlining tour of North America this fall.

The trek will last from September 28th until October 28th and will cover much of the US and Canada. Joining KATAKLYSM on the tour will be Dying Fetus (Relapse Records), ELUVEITIE (Nuclear Blast Records), and KEEP OF KALESSIN (Nuclear Blast Records).

Vocalist Maurizio Iacono could barely contain his excitement when asked about what is sure to be one of the biggest metal tours of the year:

"We’ve waited a long time for this! No more 30 minute sets and pissing our fans off every time we play with people saying ‘why didn't you play this or that.’ We’re fucking stoked to have been given this opportunity to really give our fans the show they deserve.

"We’ve also brought an elite line up of bands and friends to join us out on the road. Our great friends and brutal death metal legends DYING FETUS. From Europe, we’re bringing PaganFest stand out band ELUVEITIE with their pagan folk metal that will turn many heads. Last but not least, Norway's new kings of progressive Black Metal KEEP OF KALESSIN! A full on metal package like that hasn’t been seen in a long fucking time!

"In addition there will be a special guest in regional markets that will be revealed soon…so expect a big show with full fledged KATAKLYSM devastation. The time has finally come!"
