Vision of Disorder, the Long Island-based hardcore band that merged traditional east coast hardcore alongside thrash metal before disbanding in 2002, is set to release “Dead In New York,” a posthumous DVD showcasing the band’s frenetic live shows as well as backstage footage. The band, which only recently reunited for a handful of shows, will play a hometown show at Irving Plaza on Nov. 16 to commemorate the release of the DVD.
“The one thing we always knew when playing hundreds of shows around the world was that our live experience was always a special bond between the band and our fans. It always seemed like a big community at V.O.D. shows,” explains Matthew Baumbach. “What’s amazing about ‘Dead in New York’ is that we were able to capture that exact aspect. It shows everything from the mayhem of the material with people getting knocked out during the crazy breakdowns along with insane crowd sing-a-longs.”

Bloodsimple frontman Tim Williams sat down with PureGrainAudio to talk about the band's new album, Vision of Disorder's legacy, and how he's managed to survive over a decade in the music business. An excerpt of the interview follows:
PureGrainAudio: In 2006 Vision of Disorder did a couple reunion shows and there was a talk of a DVD release. What is the status of that release and would you ever reunite for a full tour?
Tim: I don’t think we’d ever do a full tour, but we will probably do some major cities here and there. We’re lucky that people even want to see that band anymore, so we’re not going to milk it. We’ll look at cities that we think would be cool to play, maybe head to Japan or something, but we’re going to keep it limited. As far as the DVD, it’s just been a bitch because Mike and I are in Bloodsimple and tied to Warner Bros., so the paper work is at our lawyers but it’s taken a while to clear all the red tape. It looks like there is an end in sight, so we’re hoping to have it out possibly this summer, even though it was supposed to be out last summer.

"We just got back from a week in the studio at an undisclosed location in Chicago. Man, we was workin our asses off. Buckled down and gettin' our groove on. We have emerged with about 5-6 new songs and some other ideas brewing. The shit, I kid you not, is on the next level for us. We are just playin our fuckin' hearts out. It was great to be back in the saddle; the boyz are good and focused. We've been off for like a month which was great, but it was better to be back. Now we are chillin' for the weekend and then it's rehersal time for Europe. Only bout a week and a 1/2 left. Then shit, it's on!!!! Across 16 countries in 30 dayz. If ya can do the math, that equals miles!!! Madd mothafuckin' miles! We will play a new song or two just to start testing them out. It's gonna be a hell of a trip, I'm ready, we will slaughter!!"

BLOODSIMPLE's September 24 concert at Club Voltage in Levittown, New York included a short reunion set by VISION OF DISORDER (V.O.D.), the legendary New York hardcore band which featured in its ranks current BLOODSIMPLE singer Tim Williams and guitarist Mike Kennedy. Opening the show was KARNOV, whose lineup includes two other former VISION OF DISORDER members, drummer Brendon Cohen and bassist-turned-guitarist Mike Fleischmann.
In a Billboard.com review of the show, music journalist Greg Prato writes, "Sounding amazingly tight and heavy, despite not having played a show together in four years, V.O.D. cranked out a short-but-sweet three song set, including 'Choke', 'Element', and 'D.T.O.' Unfortunately, unless you were right up front (and good luck attempting that without taking a boot to the head), you couldn't get a good view of the band, thanks to the constant presence of three burly bouncers who stood on the front of the stage throughout. Despite mass chanting of 'V.O.D., V.O.D.,' the band was off the stage in what seemed like a flash."
Writing to BLOODSIMPLE's official MySpace.com page, Williams said about the concert, "For all those unlucky enough to miss this, you fucked up!!! This was the best BLOODSIMPLE show to date in Long Island!! Thanks to all the fans for making it amazing... V.O.D. was just as fun!! Thanks again to all the kids."
Ozzfest.com has added a second "mystery band" slot to the lineup of acts performing on the Hot Topic second stage at this year's travelling festival. BLOODSIMPLE, the New York-based band featuring former members of VISION OF DISORDER, DOWNSET and MEDICATION, are a favorite to fill one of the slots. There is no word yet on which act the second slot will go to.
Earlier this week, Ozzfest organizers announced that VELVET REVOLVER will be taking over for IRON MAIDEN as one of Ozzfest's main attractions when this year's traveling festival hits Albuquerque, New Mexico, on August 23; IRON MAIDEN will be no-shows for the last seven dates of this summer's Ozzfest because of previous touring commitments they'd made overseas.
Roadrunner Records is in the process of putting together a groundbreaking record to mark the label's 25th Anniversary. Tentatively titled "Roadrunner All-Stars", the full length release, a 'master-class' in hard rock, will contain original tracks that are collaborations between past and present Roadrunner stars.
Four central musicians will be chosen to produce and write all the songs. Those chosen thus far are Joey Jordison (Slipknot), Dino Cazares (ex-Fear Factory/Brujeria) and Robert Flynn (Machine Head). The fourth writer/producer is yet to be named. These four musicians will not only play on the songs they have written but also assemble a unique team of artists to appear on each track. In order to cover as wide a spectrum as possible, no musician will play for more than one writer/producer and each song will feature a different vocalist.
Musicians who have already recorded for this project are Dino Cazares (ex-Fear Factory/Brujeria), Andreas Kisser (Sepultura), Paul Gray (Slipknot), Roy Mayorga (ex-Soulfly), Logan Mader (ex-Machine Head), Marcelo Dias (ex-Soulfly), Dave McClain (Machine Head), Nadja Peulen (ex-Coal Chamber) and Mike Sarkisyan (Spineshank).
