Decrepit Birth Posts 360 Degree Lyric Video

Decrepit Birth is set to release first new album in seven years, "Axis Mundi," on July 21st via Agonia Records (Europe / ROW) and Nuclear Blast Records (North America).

"Epigenic Triplicity" is the first single to be revealed from the record - check out the track in the form of a 360 degree VR lyric video below.

"We’ve gone through an evolution throughout the years" says founding member and primary songwriter Matt Sotelo. "The last couple of albums we had, 'Diminishing Between Worlds' and 'Polarity,' were more progressive death metal. They were different from' …And Time Begins,' which is a different genre of death metal.

"It’s more brutal. I’m the type of guy who likes to experiment. '…And Time Begins' has no solos. It’s all really fast palm-muted riffs. The other albums breathed more with the guitars. I let chords ring out on Diminishing Between Worlds and Polarity. Axis Mundi is combination of all the stuff I’m into. I like it a lot right now. It’s more melodic. The riffs repeat intentionally. I want to have fun with these songs."

"I don’t know if we’re going to re-shape death metal," he continues, "We’re just a band. We’re doing this. We’re fans of the genre. We do our own thing with it. It’s our own paint job. What sounds cool to us. We don’t aspire to be the most technical band out there. The technicality isn’t our main goal. Technicality is part of what we are. When we were writing this album, we wanted the songs that had riffs that repeat. There’s more structure with our new stuff. We’re trying to write good music. We want to entertain people out there. Hopefully, everybody likes 'Axis Mundi.'" More...

Morbid Angel Dominates Summer Slaughter in Austin

Summer Slaughter came in to the same venue, Scoot Inn, as last year's stop off at Texas' capital city. The mid-July temperatures reached a scorching 99 degrees, which everyone from fans to bands did their best to stay hydrated (kudos to Scoot Inn for providing water). Keep in mind, this was still a good 5 degrees cooler than last year.

In regards to the lineup, Summer Slaughter 2014 featured artists expected from a death metal-based tour. This year the brutality of Morbid Angel, Dying Fetus, Origin and Decrepit Birth replaced the shredding progression of Animals As Leaders and Periphery.

While death metal was at the forefront of this year's festivities, complex timing and long-winded solos were dispersed throughout the bill. Memories In Broken Glass, this year's battle of the bands winner, concentrated less on guitar solos as they did low tuned, (7 or 8-string guitar) jumping rhythms and samples. I'm sure they were happy to have played a showed promoted by Come And Take It Productions as they played in front of an impressive, jumping early crowd. More...

Decrepit Birth Taps Gabe Seeber For Tour

Drummer Gabe Seeber of Sacramento's death metal juggernaut The Kennedy Veil will be filling in for Decrepit Birth on the entire "Hell In July" tour run with Six Feet Under and Cannabis Corpse.

With The Kennedy Veil being midway through recording a new full-length and only bass and vocal tracking remaining, Gabe had the time and availability to hit the road while the rest of the band returns to the studio to wrap up the recording process for "Trinity of Falsehood."

Decrepit Birth stated the following via Facebook: "We are pleased to announce that drummer Gabe Seeber (The Kennedy Veil) will be filling in for us during our upcoming tour and and headline festival this July! Due to having such a short amount of time to learn our material, our set at the Homeless One festival will be a bit shorter than expected, but we still promise give you all our absolute best!!! A HUGE thank you to Gabe for busting his ass to keep us going with such short notice!!!"

Recording sessions for "Trinity of Falsehood" officially got underway in June, with Gabe traveling out to NB Recording in Santa Rosa, CA to lay down drum tracks with producer/engineer Nick Botelho. Multi-camera video footage was captured, and studio video updates will eventually make their way online once the band wraps up recording sessions later this month.

"Trinity of Falsehood" is tentatively set to see a release in Late 2013 via Unique Leader Records.

Six Feet Under Updates "Hell In July" Tour

Six Feet Under is currently preparing for a next round of tour dates in support of "Unborn." As previously announced, Decrepit Birth and Cannabis Corpse will be joining Six Feet Under on this tour. Additionally, up-and-coming act Dealey Plaza will open the show.

The tour begins July 10th in Houston, TX and VIP bundles are available now at this location. Bundles include: ticket to the show, Six Feet Under shirt, limited "Hell In July" poster, and a back stage pre-show hang with Chris Barnes.

Six Feet Under founder and vocalist Chris Barnes comments: "Hello, all you sick fucks! Just wanted to say hello and let all you maniacs know what we've got planned for this year. Six Feet Under is about to take to the road once again, starting this month on May 19 in Guadalajara, Mexico for the Heaven and Hell festival. We are very excited to be playing with such greats as Motorhead and Anthrax - two of my all time favorite bands! Also coming up, June 1st we will be in Memphis, TN for the Scion festival with Whitechapel and a whole bunch of other awesome bands, so that's going to be insane, as well. Then, in the middle of June, we will be heading over to Europe for three festival dates. One of which I'm really excited and can't wait to take the stage on: Hellfest in France!! Looking forward to it big time - that date is on June 23, which leads me up to the month of July with our headlining USA tour - Hell in July! Summer tours in the US are always a blast, and this one is set up for sheer devastation with opening bands Decrepit Birth, Cannabis Corpse and Dealey Plaza!

"I would just like to take this time to say and send a personal message to those in Denver, CO as well as Seattle, WA: to Whom it may concern, you may want to stock up and/or possibly grow twice as much cannabis as you have been… because once SFU and Cannabis Corpse roll into those towns, the sheer magnitude of smoking may - 1. Drain the cannabis supply of those two said cities or 2. Possibly cause low cloud formations. Fog lights should be used on all vehicles to and from the concert. More...

Decrepit Birth's Rental Van Broken Into

After the band's van caught fire while on tour earlier this week, Decrepit Birth has now issued the following statement about having equipment and personal items stolen from the replacement rental van:

"More bad energy has come to us in the form of a theft last night night in San Francisco. Our rental van had the side window broken out and all of our personal bags with cash, laptop computers, cell phones, passports, and id's were stolen.

"This was a major blow to go along with our van catching on fire in Canada and having to leave it there to be junked. At this point we will have to regretfully drop from the last few days of tour. The costs are overwhelming at this point, and to continue on would dig an even deeper hole of debt for the band, which we can't afford.

"We had a great time touring with our brothers in Obituary, Broken Hope, Jungle Rot, and Encrust. These bands were beyond awesome to us during the past week of issues we've gone through.

"Thanks to all the fans for coming out and making this such a great tour aside from the bullshit. We gave it our all every night for you, our fans. We're down but not out....

"If you feel like donating to our new van fund, you can send your donation via Paypal to decrepitbirth@msn.com. We really appreciate that our fans have reached out to us and offered to help, you guys are the best!" More...
