Josh Mullen Departs From Cephalic Carnage

The long time bass player Josh Mullen of the epic Denver, Colorado based death metal band Cephalic Carnage part ways with the band. Official statement from Mullen's departure as follows.

"I got some bad news for you, especially the ladies, I'm out again! That's right, I have decided to retire from the road. This has not been an easy decision to make, trust me, however, where I want to be in 10 years requires sacrifice. I'm gonna go back to school! But right now I have to work and save to get there. I will miss ALL of you out there, especially the friends that put us up, and put up with us over the years. I love all of you. To all of the friends in all the bands we've toured with, Thank you!! Thank you for the drunken, smoked out stories I have to tell for the rest of my humble like!! The memories! I've had a great time, but now I have to go and do some other shit, I have no attention span.

"I am staying active in music, however. I work at a rock club called the Hi-Dive, play in MUNIMULA, STUNTCOCK, and CARNICERIA, so that's keeping me busy. Eventually I want to work for Dave Otero, (If you don't know who he is, you will very soon.) but I gotta work for it.

"For those looking for juicy gossip regarding this lifestyle change, sorry, there is none. We are all grownups. It sucks for all of us, but it's unavoidable, so we accept it. We are all friends, and they understand what I have to do. Those guys took me around the world, I could never have hate for them. I love them. I loved this band for years before I joined, if they don't sell out, I will love them for all time!

"If you live in Denver, or find yourself visiting Denver, come into the Hi-Dive, I will buy you a shot of whiskey and we will go over stories and laugh!"

Check the band's official site for information on how you can try out for the band.

The Black Dahlia Murder Head Out On The Road

Even though they’ve only been home for a few short weeks The Black Dahlia Murder is about to head out for their fall headlining tour with Between the Buried and Me, Cephalic Carnage and label mates Into The Moat this Friday. The tour, which kicks off on Sept 23rd in Buffalo, NY, will be making stops across the U.S. until Oct 27th. Here’s what guitarist and madman Brian Eschbach has to say about the upcoming dates:

“We are very excited to remind you again about our upcoming tour with Cephalic Carnage, Between the Buried and Me and Into the Moat. All of these bands are awesome; but you don’t need me to tell you that. We can’t wait to see if you can all let your balls hang low. Also, you will get a free BDM poster if you attend a show in beach attire.

We also have some dates in Canada coming up. It’s going to be a rockin’ good time in Canada this fall. It’s been a year since we’ve done full Canadian tour and we can’t wait to go back.” More...

Cephalic Carnage Uncensored Video On Fuse TV

CEPHALIC CARNAGE will see their new video premiere tonight on the FUSE network's Metal Asylum program. Metal Asylum airs Monday through Friday at 11:00 PM EST and re-airs each night at 2:30 AM EST.

The Metal Asylum premiere will feature the "uncensored" version of CEPHALIC's latest video. The clip, for the track "Dying Will be the Death of Me", is taken from the band's new release, Anomalies, which is in stores now. The video has been edited for content at some outlets.

On the topic of the video, Metal Asylum Producer Jason Haitkin comments, "Trust me, the uncensored FUSE exclusive of Cephalic Carnage's "Dying will be the Death of Me" is a hysterical video (not to mention a kick ass song) from the modern day genre defying grinders." The video, which was shot on location in California by director Darren Doane (DEFTONES, NILE, SHADOWS FALL) is a play on metalcore's copycat band moniker / image "syndrome" and features the members of CEPHALIC kidnapping "a white belt-wearing mall core kid to teach him a thing or two about good music". On the topic of the video's concept, CEPHALIC CARNAGE guitarist Zac Joe comments, "CEPHALIC CARNAGE is intent on cleaning up the scene one metalcore kid at a time. "Dying" will be the death of me."

NEHMF 2005 Live Report

It’s that time of year again- birds are chirping, trees are blossoming, the city’s Crowne Plaza Hotel is bombarded with numerous metal parties. And, of course, the local businesses in Worcester, MA hand out flyers that read “Dear metalheads (!!!), if you’re wondering where to get drunk tonight, come to our pub”.

It’s the New England Metal Fest weekend, which was held on April 22-24 and welcomed fans from all corners of the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and even UK. Probably the biggest and best festival on this side of the Atlantic. At least this year’s. I was giddy with excitement about this event since January and I lived to share my observations and opinions. More...
