"Slow Southern Steel" Documentary In The Works

One of the most comprehensive southern metal documentaries ever made is coming in 2010. Appropriately dubbed "Slow Southern Steel," the 80+ minute film is executive produced by Karim Khan (I'm Better Than Everyone Records) and directed by Rwake vocalist CT and David Lipke with the additional and integral assistance of George Hancock, Alix Petrovich and Beer Wolf guitarist Christian Sweeney (who will be releasing a paperback version of the production) among many others.

"Slow Southern Steel" peers into the world of true southern metal/doom through live footage and personal interviews; CT's devout commitment/knowledge/love of the topic at hand bringing the movie to life in a way few first-time directors can. Said CT about the laborious undertaking: "I knew there were things I could get out of these bands that other film makers could not." Added Khan, "There's just something very appealing to me about taking unyielding heavy songs and adding a strong southern element to them."

At press time, the film was still being shot and thus far, featured bands will include (in alphabetical order): A Hanging, ASG, Baron Grod, Beaten Back To Pure, Beer Wolf, Black Skies, Black Tusk, Blackblood Division, Blood Of The Sun, Collapsar, Colossus, Cough, Dark Castle, Deadbird, Dead-I-On, Dixie Witch, Doomsayer, Eyehategod, Flesh Parade, Haarp, Hawg Jaw, HOD, Hope And Suicide, Hostile Apostle, House Of Lightning, In The Lurch, Jucifer, Ketea, Khann, Kylesa, Mala Suerte, Music Hates You, Parasytic, Queen Beast, Royal Thunder, Rwake, Seahag, SeaWitch, Sourvein, Speedealer, Spickle, Suplecs, Subrig Destroyer, The Devil And The Sea, The Dumps, The Roller, The Unbeheld, Vessel Of The Divine, Weedeater, Withered and Zoroaster.

"Slow Southern Steel" will make its debut at the renowned Little Rock Film Festival in May of 2010 (www.littlerockfilmfestival.org) where many of the bands featured will be in attendance. Additional festival previews will follow.

The DVD edition is slated to be released in 2011 via fast-growing, vinyl-only (and now DVD) Chicago imprint, I'm Better Than Everyone Records.

Facedowninshit Complete Relapse Debut

FACEDOWNINSHIT have completed work on their forthcoming Relapse Records debut, entitled NPON. NPON, which stands for Nothing Positive, Only Negative, was recorded at Pontchartrain Studios with engineer Jay Murphy and mastered at Kitchen Mastering (CATHARSIS, MEAT PUPPETS) by Brent Lambert. The final track listing for NPON is "Plasma Center Blues", "NPON", "Countless", "Ten Strip", "Association of Known Undesirables", "Fucked", and "Rough Sleep". FACEDOWNINSHIT guitarist Jason Crumer had this to say about NPON: “I think with this one we deliver what people who have favored our live shows have been wanting. Thanks for sticking with us for so long, hopefully this one will do it for ya'll.”

An April 2006 release date for NPON is expected. Until then, two advance tracks, “NPON” and “Association Of Known Undesirables" are available online now via Relapse and the FDIS myspace page.

Prior to the album’s release, FACEDOWNINSHIT will be co-headlining a U.S. tour with DEADBIRD. This tour will include a stop in Austin, TX where FDIS will perform at the Relapse Records Showcase at the annual SXSW Music Conference.
