Arsis Drops Off Carcass Tour

Arsis has announced that they will not be taking part in Carcass's tour of North America which kicks off next week. Suicide Silence, Samael and Psycroptic will still be on board however. A message from Arsis drummer Dave Kinkade states:

"This is due to situations in Arsis that are out of my hands. I do not feel that it is my place to go into specific reasons leading up to this decision but being the drummer of Arsis, it is in my best interest to NOT keep the fans in the dark. There are major personal and communication issues in this band that need be resolved before anything can continue as Arsis. I will leave it at that. Again, my apologies to the fans and the other bands on the bill.

"Due to the situation, I am available for session/ possible long-term drum work nationally and internationally. Those interested can contact me at: Anti_cosmic_drummer@yahoo.com

"On a positive note, the new Borknagar album is nearing the final completion stages. Having spoken with Øystein today, I am told that vocals and synths are well under way and we will all be meeting in Oslo at the end of April for the final mixing and mastering. So far, drums and guitars are finished and let me be the first to say that this album is going to be immense. By far the most brilliant material that Borknagar has ever written, this work is going to have all the “meat n’ potatoes” musically and production wise. I trust that all the fans will enjoy this effort."

Carcass Announces U.S. Tour Dates

Reunited U.K. melo-death/gore-grind legends, CARCASS, will return to the United States this March for the “Exhumed to Consume II” tour. The follow up to last years highly successful “Exhume to Consume” tour will feature SUICIDE SILENCE, SAMAEL, ARSIS and PSYCROPTIC plus a few special guests on select dates. Vocalist/bassist and all around optimistic person Jeff Walker commented:

"Well, I'm pleased to announce that CARCASS is gonna settle it's unresolved scores in the U.S.! There was some slight whimpers of discontent that we didn't hit some cities such as Chicago and Denver last time round - places that were always hot spots of enthusiasm for us. So we're coming back in March to finish off our unsettled business! We seemed to have had a profound influence on your economy and gas prices have gotten cheaper haha! That's doesn't mean we’re not gonna come through and provide some value for your buck with some old (and new) school friends and comrades such as SUFFOCATION, SAMAEL, BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, EXODUS, SUICIDE SILENCE etc. - check out locally as for who is on the bill where! And hey, I couldn't think of anywhere better to be on my 40th birthday than the Sunshine Theatre in Albuquerque, New Mexico! We promise this will be the last time we darken your shores (I said that with my fingers crossed behind my back)!"

Psycroptic Posts New Song Online

Tasmanian tech-death masters, PSYCROPTIC, have uploaded a brand new track and cover art to the bands Myspace page. The song “Immortal Army of One” was taken from “Ob(Servant),” the band’s first album for Nuclear Blast Records and fourth album overall. “Ob(Servant)” will be released on October 14th in North America.

Drummer Dave Haley commented:

“'Immortal Army of One' is one of my personal favorites on “Ob(servant)”. The riffs on it are catchy as hell and stick in your head, and it is a very brutal song. Yet, it has a lot of dynamics throughout and is quite technical. It’s very PSYCROPTIC sounding, yet there are a lot of new sounds and ideas introduced. Just an all round cool track both to listen to and play.

"Lyrically, the song explores the the idea of a suicidal god like being – one who has omnipotence yet wants to relinquish it. A twisted thought - a being who has the choice to do anything desired, except giving up such a power; all powerful yet powerless at the same time.”

“Ob(Servant)” was mixed and mastered by former MACHINE HEAD and SOULFLY guitarist Logan Mader (DIVINE HERESY, GOJIRA) and recorded once again by guitarist Joe Haley.

PSYCROPTIC recently returned home after a very successful US debut on this years Summer Slaughter tour, which included THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, KATAKLYSM, CRYPTOPSY, THE FACELESS, DESPISED ICON, ABORTED and WHITECHAPEL.

Psycropic Reveal New Album Title

Tasmanian tech-death masters, PSYCROPTIC, have officially announced the title of their follow-up to 2006’s “Symbols of Failure.” “Ob(Servant),” the band’s first album for Nuclear Blast Records and fourth overall, will be released sometime in the fall of 2008. “Ob(Servant)” was mixed and mastered by former MACHINE HEAD and SOULFLY guitarist Logan Mader (DIVINE HERESY, GOJIRA) and recorded once again by guitarist Joe Haley. Drummer Dave Haley commented on their upcoming release:

“'Ob(Servant)' is definitely our finest hour (well, finest 49 minutes and 49 seconds anyway). It’s of course a cliché of every band to say that their newest album is their best and so on, but we are very proud of what we have done on this album. The writing process was a little different for this album, with Joe (guitarist) writing pretty much all the material. This gives the album a very coheisive and flowing feel, and this album is definatley our most diverse material thus far. The artwork is also amazing, having been completed by Raymand Swanland (DEEDS OF FLESH). Those not familiar with his work should check it out – you will be amazed! More...

Psycroptic Signs To Nuclear Blast

Nuclear Blast Records has announced the signing of the Tasmanian technical death metal band PSYCROPTIC.

Nuclear Blast's U.S. A&R representative Gerardo Martinez stated about the signing: "We are beyond excited to be working with one of the BEST technical death metal bands in the world right now. We feel the band will reach the status they deserve in a short period of time."

The band added: "To say that all of us are excited to be working with Nuclear Blast is quite an understatement — we're over the moon! Nuclear Blast has always been the pinnacle of labels within the metal realm, and to be signed with them is a huge honor for us...and to be the first Tasmanian band to ever be on the label is a pretty cool bonus as well. The artist roster is nothing short of amazing, and for us to be added to it...well, we couldn't be happier!!"

In a recent interview with The Metal Forge, PSYCROPTIC drummer Dave Haley stated about the group's new material, "It's still PSYCROPTIC, but I think our songwriting has improved. It's very catchy stuff, but still intense. Some stuff isn't as technical, other stuff is. We have tried to make it varied but still sound like an album — not just a mish-mash of songs. We're quite excited about it all!"

PSYCROPTIC's third full-length album, "Symbols of Failure," was released in February 2006 via Neurotic Records. The follow-up of 2003's "The Scepter of the Ancients" marks the recording debut of the band's new vocalist Jason Peppiatt.
