Underground journalist Ryan Bartek has just released chapter one of his forthcoming book “Fortress Europe (The Big Shiny Prison Vol. II)” as a free PDF download. "Fortress Europe: London" features interviews with members of Killing Joke, Pantheist, Hello Bastards, Armed Response Unit, Fen, Flowers of Flesh and Blood, as well as a barrage of industry insiders and renowned metal/punk journalists.

Ahhhh, death metal. Until tonight I hadn’t been to a proper death metal show in a couple of years at least, if not longer, so when I opened the doors to Reggie’s Rock Club in Chicago’s Near South Side, the stench of decaying flesh wafted into my wanting nostrils and refreshed my soul. Spiked gauntlets and shinguards, bullet belts, corpsepaint, unending blast beats, lots and lots of huge buckles, long black coats – all the pleasantries of a death metal show were coming back to me in trigged kick drum style as I boldly strode past the merch table. The Apostles of Darkness Over The Americas Tour was in town, and headliner Rotting Christ had brought along a bag of very special guests: Melechesh, Hate, Abigail Williams and Lecherous Nocturne. Unfortunately I had a sustenance occasion that precluded my arrival in time for Lecherous Nocturne, but the folks I chatted with said their tech-death was precise and heavy. More...

DIABOLIC has issues the following report:
"DIABOLIC has returned from our Tour Dates with CANNIBAL CORPSE on the 'Evisceration Plague' Tour and it was a great success!!
"Due to 1349 not being able to join the Tour on the first few dates, DIABOLIC were invited to join the Tour at the last minute, and we were able to play the following shows:
4/21 Atlanta, GA Masquerade
4/22 Raleigh, NC Tavern 11
4/23 Springfield, VA Jaxx
4/24 Philadelphia, PA Lotsa Metal (Headlining show, without CC)
4/25 Farmville, NY Crazy Donkey (with 1349)
"After 1349 was able to join the Tour in NY, unfortunately that meant the end of the Tour for us - we had stepped up and done exactly what we had set out to do, and it was time to head back to Tampa - but as a bonus, the fans in NY got to see DIABOLIC as well as 1349 on the same bill!!
"DIABOLIC played classic favorites such as 'Supreme Evil,' 'Marked for Banishment,' 'Ancient Hatred,' and 'Extinction Level Event,' in addition to showcasing new songs such as 'Evil in Disguise' and the Title Track from our upcoming new CD, 'Excisions of Exorcisms.' At our headlining show in Philly we played an extended set, to include even more new songs, such as 'Hellish World,' 'Venomous Habitations,' and 'Bloodwashed.' It was great for the band to get back out on the road, and seeing our fans (old and new) was awesome!! We got a great response, sold almost completely out of merchandise, handed out dozens of copies of Deathgasm Recs Promo/Comp CD’s featuring Track #1 our new song “Evil in Disguise” and got a killer buzz going for our new CD, 'Excisions of Exorcisms!!'
"DIABOLIC would like to give special thanks to the bands: LECHEROUS NOCTURNE, for opening the show for us every night, even letting us borrow their guitar and bass cabs to help the shows run more smoothly (thanks bros!) and to SKELETONWITCH for being so cool and supportive, and especially to CANNIBAL CORPSE, for inviting us to play these Tour Dates!! Thank you to Evan from Deathgasm Records for hooking us up with killer merchandise, to Marco Barbieri and Salem Rose Music, for helping us to make it happen! Thanks to the promoters, Chris in Philly for hooking us up at the last minute! Also special thanks to Jarrod Pritchard for running live sound for us every night! Thanks to Nick Storch at ICM Talent, and to CANNIBAL’s Tour Manager, Pete Robertson, for helping us get onboard and up to speed!! A huge mega-thanks to Aly Webster for the cool live pics!! And thanks to Alex, Pat, Paul, George, and Rob for just being killer dudes and delivering a crushing set every night!! We thank you very much for the opportunity, and we’ll see you again next time!!
