Bewilderbiest Changes Name, Posts New Song Online

New doom metal band, Bewilderbiest, featuring various members of other well known metal bands, has changed its name to Bereft. The band has also uploaded the song "Withered Efflorescence" to its new Facebook page for streaming.

"This will give everyone a taste of what this band is about; dark, depressing, doom," commented vocalist/guitarist Charles Elliott. "Definitely different from what we do in our usual bands. It's heavy as hell and we're all really proud how the record and collaboration came out, and we hope people feel the same way."

"On this particular track Sacha and Derek D. worked together on the music while Derek R. and I worked on the lyrics. I've always envisioned vocal tradeoffs with Sacha on this one, ever since the demo he sent me years ago, so that's what you hear on the chorus."

"This project has been on the back burner since 2008, so we hope people enjoy finally listening to it as much as we do. Come check out our first show ever at The Handbag Factory this month in Los Angeles!"

Bereft is made up of Sacha Dunable on guitar (Intronaut, Graviton), Derek Donley on drums (National Sunday Law, Graviton), Charles Elliott on vocals and guitar (Abysmal Dawn) and Derek Rydquist on bass (ex-The Faceless).

The debut album from BEREFT was recorded and mixed by drummer Derek Donley. Mastering has handled by Brian Elliott (EXHUMED, DYING FETUS) at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL.

The band has one upcoming shows scheduled at the moment:

9/30 The Handbag Factory - Los Angeles, CA

Report

Hate Eternal Remained Solid In Austin

A rush of cool air relieved my over-taxed pores when I entered Jackalopes. I walked past a girl wearing a Danzig shirt posing for a picture on top of a statue of a giant jackrabbit with horns—the fabled Jackalope. I not only sought shelter from the one-hundred-three-degree inferno that blazed outside, it helped me kill time before Emo’s opened its door a hour-and-a-half later.

While devouring one of the juiciest burgers in town, I noticed other metal heads wearing various death metal shirts entering the establishment. Located just a couple of blocks from the venue, the metal-friendly bar and grill catered to those awaiting the coming death metal onslaught.

In route to the bar, I noticed one of the more conspicuous fans on the other side of the street. Wearing corpse paint that may have been patterned from an old Satyricon or Gorgoroth photo, this fan’s black attire seemed in defiance of the sun’s powerful rays. I guess nobody told this guy he was going to a death metal show. Also, the heat surely streaked his makeup, most likely stinging his eyes. What he lacked in brains he made up for in dedication, though (even though this was a death metal show).

Three or four people stood near the touring vans outside the venue when I walked past Emo’s at around 6:30. The line grew to the front of the next venue when I returned at 7:30. Soon, the line grew to the end of the block—a good sign for the five bands due on stage. The venue opened close to its scheduled time of 8 PM. More...

Josh Barnett Announces Japanese Relief Show

MMA superstar Josh Barnett has spearheaded a relief fund to help the victims of the recent travesty that hit Japan. Barnett is very open about his love of heavy metal and he knew it made perfect sense to put together a show that featured some of the metal's best acts to raise some money for this very worthy cause.

This special event featuring All Shall Perish, Animals As Leaders, Cattle Decapitation, Abysmal Dawn, Internal Corrosion, and Thrown Into Exile is set to take place at the House of Blues in Hollywood on Saturday, May 26th and all proceeds go directly to the American Red Cross Japanese relief effort. Tickets are only $15 and are on-sale now here or at this location.

Barnett states: "As someone that has worked in Japan over the last nine years and even lived there for a time I felt an obligation to try and help a country which has shown so much love and hospitality to me over the years. This event dealt a devastating blow to the 'Land of The Rising Sun,' not only economically but to the hearts, minds and souls of its people. I don't think that my event can in any way reverse what has happened or completely restore a country and its people, but music has the power to move the heart and soul. That kind energy can reach masses and be transferred to others and if even one person can be helped, it was worth it. In any form that we can generate funds, support and just simply the bushido spirit to all those affected by this we will be successful and keep the sun forever rising in Japan.

“I am incredibly lucky and thankful for all the bands, companies and people that have helped me organize such an awesome show and I not only look forward to seeing everyone there but to sit back and be a fan myself. I'll be the big blonde guy headbanging, horns in the air."

Ben Orum (guitarist of All Shall Perish) further comments: “We would like to personally thank Josh Barnett for inviting us to play this very special Japanese relief benefit show. What happened over there was a travesty and while it's easy to not think about the events that took place because we are so far away, we hope to remind people how much help is still needed. We will be performing some new material off of our upcoming CD, This is Where it Ends, so come out and check it out! Check out the link here for a sneak peak to some of our new material."

Abysmal Dawn Announces New Album Details

Los Angeles, CA’s Abysmal Dawn has announced the title of the band's forthcoming album as "Leveling The Plane of Existence." The follow-up to 2008’s "Programmed To Consume" has been set for a February 1st North American release date (February 7th – UK, February 11th – Germany, Benelux, February 14th – rest of EU). Additional album details including album art and track listing will be posted shortly.

Abysmal Dawn began recording "Leveling The Plane of Existence" in May 2010. The drums were recorded at Trench Studios in Corona, CA with John Haddad, with the rest of the instrumentation being produced and recorded by Mike Bear at Artisan Road Studios in Encino, CA. The new album is being mixed and mastered by Erik Rutan at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL.

Guitarist/vocalist Charles Elliott recently commented on the album: "After a series of set backs, illness, and going through a world of shit in our personal lives, we had no choice but to make this record our revenge and the defining moment for Abysmal Dawn. We've had the finished mixes for about a week now and everyone that has heard it has been just blown away. We can already tell that this will be the record that the band will become known for. It's a very varied, extreme, technical, and melodic record and I can promise you that no one will be disappointed."

Abysmal Dawn Checks In From The Studio

Los Angeles, CA’s Abysmal Dawn has recently begun recording the follow-up album to the band's Relapse debut "Programmed To Consume" at Trench Studios in Corona, CA with John Haddad. The album will be mixed by Erik Rutan at his Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL. A fall release date is expected.

Abysmal Dawn's Charles Elliot issued the following update: "We recently wrapped up recording drums at Trench Studios and the final product is incredible! I think we really got some amazing tones this time and Scott delivered an amazing over the top drum performance. Our music has definitely become more demanding technically and Scott really stepped things up in the drum department. We really wanted to get a natural drum sound so the guys in Reciprocal were kind enough to let us rent their top of the line Pearl kit from them. Thanks a lot guys!

"Right now I’m currently laying down all the rhythm guitar tracks with Mike Bear at Artisan Road Studios in Encino, CA. For those of you that are keeping track, Mike played bass on our first album 'From Ashes' and played a few shows locally with us in the early days. I’ve known Mike since our bands first played together with Death at the Whiskey in ’98 while I was still in high school. We became friends soon after and he even filled in on bass for my old band Inhuman Visions back then. Recording my guitar tracks with him has been a true pleasure and his attention to detail is impeccable. Mike Cosio also started tracking bass with him recently and his know-how of the instrument has really helped Mike’s performance shine. Can’t wait to send everything to Erik Rutan to put the finishing touches on things. This will be the tightest and best Abysmal Dawn record yet!”
