Aborted Updates On Upcoming US Tour, Lineup

Belgium’s Aborted are preparing for their first full North American invasion. Their new album, The Archaic Abattoir, “an epic in its own right” won the band considerable praise. Founder and vocalist Sven De Caluwe commented on the upcoming tour and line-up changes: “Things are really starting to move fast for us, and we're fully preparing ourselves for the upcoming U.S. tour with Cryptopsy, Suffocation and Despised Icon. Needless to say, we're all extremely psyched about this tour and can't wait to spread our own little brand of death-fucking-metal to all our fans. To the people who have been waiting to see us over there; the wait is over, and we'll make sure none of you will have any regrets. Some news on the band, we're also very happy with the way the new line-up is working out. Guitarist Stephane Souteyrand has been in the band since June and has been more than great. He's not only a great musician but also a very cool guy to work with, and we can't wait to start writing the next album with him by our side. See you guys in a month!”

The video for “Dead Wreckoning” will premier on MTV2’s Headbangers Ball Saturday night September 3rd. Produced by Darren Doane (Shadows Fall, Nile) and filmed in Downtown L.A. “in the basement of an old meat factory, De Caluwe said, “Scary fact is that there was blood everywhere, fresh blood, which neither Darren nor the band put there. Weird part is the factory has been out of business for quite some time…”

Skinless Ready New Album For 2006

SKINLESS guitarist Noah Carpenter has issued the following update regarding their plans for a new album to be released next year, which will be their first with vocalist Jason Keyser:

"SKINLESS would like to say thanks to DEICIDE, IMMOLATION, DESPISED ICON, WITH PASSION and their crews for a great tour, and probably the best tour SKINLESS has ever been a part of. Also, a huge thanks to all of our fans who came out to support us. You bastards in NYC, Quebec City, Montreal, Toronto and Los Angeles were especially fucking crazy. If we didn't make it through your area please be patient, we'll get to ya.

Right now we are concentrating on writing the new album. Our main goal is to write the heaviest Skinless material ever. If everything goes as planned we'll be in the studio by the end of 2005 to set SKINLESS up for a Spring 2006 release through Relapse Records, followed by extensive touring. We do not yet have a title for the forthcoming album but some song titles are "Trample The Weak, Hurdle the Dead," "Execution Of Reason," "Sycophant," and "Overlord." This album will delve deeply into themes and images of warfare, and possibly a history lesson or two.

We'll be doing a few small excursions in the Northeast U.S.A, Mexico, and Eastern Canada later this year, dates will be posted as they are confirmed.

"Gut Pumping Hits" is due to be released by Stepup Productions at the end of 2005. This combo CD/DVD package will include all SKINLESS demo recordings from 1992-1997, as well as the "Buzzed And Brutal" VHS now on DVD(with bonus material).

That's about all for now. METAL!!!"

With Passion @ BBkings 05-30-05

On Monday, May 30th I went to see With Passion BBkings in NYC, NY. They were the first opening band for Deicide and Immoation. After first seeing them perform in March with Into Eternity and Amorphis, I knew I was in for an intense show. I also am familiar with their music this time around. Unfortunately I had to leave after this band due to a virus. More...

Despised Icon To Support Deicide

The Montreal-based deathcore six-piece Despised Icon recently completed a massive Canadian tour alongside Ion Dissonance this past month in support of The Healing Process, their highly acclaimed new album. The band will make their first appearance in the U.S. at the Maryland Deathfest late May leading them directly into their first national U.S. tour alongside Deicide, Immolation, Skinless and With Passion.

Alex Erian (vocals) checks in with the following report:

We just got back from our Canadian tour and we had a great time with our bros in Ion Dissonance. We pretty much started out at the same time and have also shared numerous bands/projects in the past with those guys, so it was definitely awesome to be able to tour with them for the first time. I guess you could say that we're lucky as hell these days because our first U.S. tour will be with none other than Deicide, Immolation, Skinless and With Passion. I can't wait and you can bet lives will be taken. Cheers to all the cool people we met on the road.

Despised Icon's sophomore release, The Healing Process, was produced by guitarist Yannick St-Amand (Ion Dissonance, Neuraxis), mixed by J-F Dagenais (Misery Index, Kataklysm) and mastered by Alan Douches (Shadows Fall, Dillinger Escape Plan). This album is a relentless slab of sheer aggression matched with impeccable time changes that quickly raises the bar for their peers.

Misery Index Dropped From Deicide Tour

Misery Index have apparently been dropped from the upcoming Deicide, Immolation, Skinless, and With Passion tour, which is scheduled to kick off in late-May. According to the band, they've "summarily booted" from the tour "due to persistent issues and problems over the last few months with the booking agent." Instead, look for Misery Index on the road in the Northeast with Magrudergrind and Rotten Sound in late-May.

Report: Into Eternity Show at BBkings, NYC

As I walked into BB kings on March 20th 2005, I wasn’t prepared for the night of madness ahead of me. I see an almost empty room of fans sitting and talking while they wait for the opening act. I was at the front of the line for this show, but the line was short. By the time the first band started playing I looked around to notice if anyone else had come in, they had, but they didn’t feel like standing up front. I felt like I was at a small local club for my friend’s band. Also without a barrier the experience became more intimate. More...

Immolation To Support Deicide On Upcoming Tour

IMMOLATION will be touring as direct support to Deicide on their tour in late May/June. Immolation will be touring in support of their latest album, Harnessing Ruin, which features the recording debut of drummer Steve Shalaty, and the band’s most crushing yet clear production to date, compliments of longtime producer Paul Orofino. When asked about the tour and the release of the group's latest masterpiece, Harnessing Ruin, the band could hardly hide their enthusiasm.

"We are really excited about the release of Harnessing Ruin. It is the darkest, heaviest and most emotionally charged album we have ever done!! We are also really looking forward to the upcoming tour with Deicide. Together, along with Skinless, Misery Index, and With Passion, we are all going to crush the US and Canada!!! For us this will be our most extensive run through Canada, so we are really interested in checking out the mid western areas that we have not been able to hit in the past! Prepare for one of the most devastating tours of the year!"

Here's a list of confirmed tour dates so far: More...
