Another Band Exits Metal Alliance-Tour

Lorna Shore has exited the tour that features Deicide and Hate Eternal (originally branded the Metal Alliance tour, which was scrapped after Entombed A.D. was booted). Explains the band:

"To those attending or planning to attend the remaining dates of The Deicide Headliner/Metal Alliance tour we are sad to say we will not be able to finish the rest of the tour. Unfortunately there have been multiple passings in a few members family’s and in this time of need, they are choosing to be with their families and we hope you can support our decision as we feel family is always first.

"We will be sure to be back in the areas we cancelled this year and our apologies are the most sincere. We highly advise you check out the rest of the tour and thank them for having us out! We apologize again and thank you for sticking with us."

After accusations from online commentors that Deicide was to blame for the unexpected tour problems rather than monetary issues, the band also issued a statement about the ill-fated live trek that can be read here).

Hate Eternal Signs With Season Of Mist

Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of legendary death metal band Hate Eternal. The label comments:

"Helmed by founder, guitarist/vocalist, primary songwriter, and producer Erik Rutan, Hate Eternal has been one of the leading bands in the worldwide death metal scene for over eighteen years. The band's five full-length albums are considered crucial genre touchstones, and the band is a proven headliner across five continents.

"Hate Eternal (Rutan [guitar, vocals] and J.J. Hrubovcak [bass/vocals]) are currently holed up in Rutan's Mana Recording studio recording a new album that will be released in early 2015."

Regarding the recording, Rutan comments, "We are ecstatic about how the recording for our new album has been coming out so far, and our new label and home Season Of Mist. We've worked very hard on crafting these songs to reflect our path, from our past to the present, and the journey of Hate Eternal and its members. Writing this album was a long and arduous process. It took a tremendous amount of determination, blood, and sweat to bring this all to fruition. We're super proud of what we've accomplished creatively, and excited at the prospect of releasing what we feel is our most powerful Hate Eternal material to date."

Rutan continues, "Now it is time to bring this all to life! The recording process so far has been fantastic. I've never felt so focused and determined on a Hate Eternal record, and I know that this will be an album our listeners and supporters will truly appreciate. It represents an important milestone for me personally since 15 years ago both Hate Eternal began recording it's first album and Mana Recording Studios was born. We have so much more news to share with you over the coming months. We cannot wait for you to hear this album!"

Hate Eternal Bassist Releasing Christmas Album

Just in time for the holiday season, Hate Eternal bass maverick J.J. Hrubovcak vomits forth Death Metal Christmas' "Hellish Renditions Of Christmas Classics," a twistedly unholy rendition of some of the season's darkest hymns.

Composed and produced by J.J. with vocals and artwork by brother/Monstrosity vocalist Mike Hrubovcak, "Hellish Renditions Of Christmas Classics" was engineered by Hate Eternal mastermind Erik Rutan and J.J., mixed and mastered by Brian Elliott at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, and boasts five deformed Christmas classics.

The following press release was issued about the album:

"Far from a campy holiday metal record, Christmas - Hellish Renditions Of Christmas Classics comes replete with updated arrangements, blast beats, double bass drum battery, hellbound guitar solos and new lyrics with a purpose. A death metal record first and Christmas album second, the themes of the hymns were used as a foundation for the music and can mostly be heard in the right channel. Everything else was built around the theme -- solo sections, intros, outros, harmonies, etc. It was important from the start that this album not be a joke, but a serious record that could survive outside of the Christmas season and thus the resulting symphony of sickness.

Housecore Sucessfully Blends Horror and Metal

Housecore Horror Film and Heavy metal festival masterminds, Corey Mitchell and Philip H. Anselmo brought Austin, Texas a rare entertainment opportunity, packaged in human flesh, marred by celluloid cigarette burns--a four-day, multi-stage, multi-tent, multi-everything horror-movie festival. Industry people arrived from all around the world to help support this lofty endeavor.

The gorier the better as many of the major stars of the film portion of the festival had participated in legendary blood spillers such as the "Nekromantik" film series (Director Jörg Buttgereit ), "Coffin Joe" (Director José Mojica Marins ) and "Friday the 13th." Ari Lehman made film history when Jason Voorhees finally sprung to life after the murder of his mother. Lehman attended the festival not only as a film celebrity, but as a musician. Nefarious of Macabre joined Lehman on stage in his First Jason band to perform campy horror metal songs about that guy in the hockey mask. More...

Hate Eternal Parts Ways With Drummer

Hate Eternal drummer Jade Simonetto has left the band to further his education and post-music career. Simonetto states about leaving:

"Being a part of Hate Eternal has been one of the greatest experiences of my life and parting ways is, by far, the most difficult thing I've ever had to do. Erik & JJ are older brothers to me and have always looked out for my best interests. Knowing I wont be touring and jamming with those guys is a hard pill to swallow, but I'm choosing to pursue my education and establish myself career-wise.

"I'll miss the world of diehard metal heads who come out to shows and support this great thing we all love. I wish Erik & JJ all the success in the world personally and professionally and have no doubt that Erik will discover some monster drummer we haven't yet heard of. It's what he does!"

Hate Eternal founder and guitarist/vocalist Erik Rutan comments, "It's been a great road traveled with Jade as a part of the band for six years, two very special albums and many, many tours across the world. Some of the best times and experiences in my life and career have been with Jade in the band. Jade is like a brother to JJ and I, and we are very proud of all we accomplished together as a band . His loyalty, dedication, and commitment to Hate Eternal is something we'll always be very grateful for and Jade will always be family. This has been in discussion for some time now and we all agreed that it was time for this to happen. We wish Jade nothing but the best with his future and thank him for all his hard work and tremendous contributions to Hate Eternal." More...
