"Here, their rocked-out grindcore fusion incorporates more abstract and caustic riff/tone exploration within the patented mid-paced scathe their diehard audience has ravenously come to anticipate with their expanding discography. Recorded at Developing Nations with Kevin Bernsten (Full Of Hell, Inter Arma, Ilsa, Coke Bust) and mastered by Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), Architectural Failures will see release this Tuesday, November 26th."

Bolt Thrower has released this bit of news regarding their first trip to the USA in 14 years:
"Due to the fact that we are not real festival lovers or great fans of flying, the chances of us ever coming to the States for a one-off show was always very small. But after years of relentless emails from Ryan we've finally given in. It's hard to believe that it's been 14 years since we last played in the US, so we are very happy to announce that we are finally coming back. Bolt Thrower will be playing Maryland Deathfest VII, on May 22-24, 2009, at Sonar, Baltimore, MD."
A few more bands were exected to be included in this announcement, but the organizers are still working on the details. Therefore, another announcement is expected with even more band confirmations in the near future, as they wrap up the booking process for Maryland Deathfest 2009
Tickets will definitely go on sale on Friday, November 7th.

Antigama from Warsaw, Poland and Drugs Of Faith from Virginia, USA team up for a split disc inspired by the Napalm Death / Coalesce split, In Tongues We Speak. Following in the footsteps of that bi-national split of grindcore and hardcore, Selfmadegod Records from Poland is poised to release the Antigama / Drugs Of Faith split 3"CD on an eager world audience.
The three songs representing Antigama's share of the CD are the last ones that the band is issuing before the awaited Relapse debut full-length, Resonance, which, as Relapse describes on its website, is "certain to drive the listener to frenzied extremes never before experienced." Antigama turns in two original songs packed full of its trademark sound and a cover of a classic Goblin song.
As for Drugs Of Faith, this power-trio delivers three new tracks that offer a taste of what the future full-length on Selfmadegod is shaping up to resemble. The band has new surprises up its sleeve, having churned out spanking new material for this team up with Antigama that takes its sound further down the road hinted at with the self-titled mini-album, both musically and lyrically.
Not content to have two bands from the same obvious genres or sharing the same influences go head to head on a split, as often happens, Antigama and Drugs Of Faith's individual sounds play against each other, resulting in a jolt for the listener as the tracks alternate between the two bands on Selfmadegod's latest release. With Antigama awaiting the arrival of its Relapse full-length and Drugs Of Faith supporting the LP version of its mini-album (which features two bonus tracks), the split 3"CD should be a must for fans of either or both groups.
An old hand at steering grindcore in the studio, Szymon Czech (Nyia, Third Degree, Antigama), has mastered this double-barrel disc due on March 26 2007.
The track listing for the Split CD is as follows:
1. Antigama - Herd
2. Drugs Of Faith - Churchianity
3. Antigama - Gift
4. Drugs Of Faith - Memoranda
5. Antigama - Zombi
6. Drugs Of Faith - Phantom
