Tomorrow's Summer Slaughter Date Changing Venue

The organizers of the Summer Slaughter tour have issued the following update about changing venues for tomorrow's show:

"Summer Slaughter tour in El Paso Tomorrow (Tuesday, July 20th) forced to move to Las Cruces, NM @ Beverly Hills Club due to shady owner of Club 101! Many of you may have noticed that The 4th Annual Summer Slaughter Festival in El Paso was advertised and on sale at Club 101 for quite some time. The owner was recently offered a Buckcherry show on the same day and outright canceled Summer Slaughter to replace it with Buckcherry because 'his bar sales would be much higher.'

"That is the crappiest thing you can do in this business and it really is despicable that he would be willing to screw over 10 touring bands and hundreds of fans out of greed for alcohol sales. Please spread the word to everyone you can about the new venue info for Summer Slaughter in El Paso/Las Cruces."

The tour includes Cephalic Carnage, The Faceless, Decrepit Birth, All Shall Perish, The Red Chord, Veil of Maya, and more.

Decrepit Birth Reveals Album Artwork

Santa Cruz CA’s tech-death metallers Decrepit Birth have revealed the artwork for their upcoming "Polarity" album, which is to be released on July 27th in North America on Nuclear Blast Records. The artwork was completed by artist Dan Seagrave and can be viewed through Decibel Magazine.

Guitarist Matt Sotelo explained the meaning behind the cover: "Dan's art fits the overall theme of the album perfectly. We had approached Dan with some ideas at a show of ours he attended. It was really cool to finally meet Dan in person and get the chance to explain to him some of our song themes as well as ideas for the new album cover. We could tell that he was excited to help us on this one! The cover depicts images of ancient energies and balance, which is something that is personal for us, and perfectly reflects our abstract lyrical and musical style. Dan's art is so unmistakable!"

Artist Dan Seagrave offered an even more in depth reasoning behind his artistic interpretation: “It is the vision of a transcendental nightmare. where the perception of technological power has gone beyond the will of the author. In the slumbering cohesive minds of the human race, and the absence of communicative truth between people, their social masks become their Sarcophagi. A telepathic cult is formed that fells the earth, reducing it to an atomic level. Its information trapped in mirrored shards. Through this energy, distant echos of images are glimpsed, particles reform, and a new chronozone period is born, set adrift at a dawnless epoch.”

Decrepit Birth Shoots New Music Video

Decrepit Birth recently shot a video clip for the song “The Resonance," which comes off the band's forthcoming release "Polarity." The new album is set to be released on July 27th in North America through Nuclear Blast Records. "The Resonance" was directed by former VJ/producer for MTV Norway’s Headbangers Ball, Ann Christin "Anki" Rihm. Photos from the video shoot can be viewed here.

"We shot our first video last week for ‘The Resonance,’" commented the band. “We had a blast shooting late into the night, deep in the dark of the Mojave desert! The director Anki, had a great vision of what she wanted to do. We had a chance to preview some of the footage, and we couldn't be more pleased with what we saw! It was about time for us to do a video and we are glad we had such awesome conditions to shoot our first. Get ready!"

Ann Christin "Anki" Rihm added: “Decrepit Birth is no ordinary death metal band and my goal was to capture that. I chose to build the set in an as natural environment/setting as possible and put much effort into how to light the set to give the video the exact look and feeling I wanted. My main focus was to make it seem as organic and natural as possible but keeping an developing change that turns into a very massive final look. The video was shot for 12 hours straight in the desert 3 hours outside LA. The guys were incredibly easy to work with and we had so much fun and a very good time making this video!”

Drums for Polarity were recorded at Sharkbite Studios with producer Zack Ohren while all other tracking was handled by Matt Sotelo before being mixed by Ohren at Castle Ultimate Studios. Guitarist Matt Sotelo commented on the new material as well as their being added to this years Summer Slaughter tour:

"Polarity is a musical odyssey into the mind and soul, covering many different emotions. This album really fuses together where we are as musicians, by combining melody and brutality on a new level. We are also very proud to be part of the Summer Slaughter tour for the second time in a row! Get ready to be pummeled by some of the best bands in extreme music!"

"Drummer KC Howard and guitarist Dan Eggers have both decided to part ways with the band. We want thank them very much for the hard work.

For live shows, we will be bringing in drummers Samus Paulicelli (Ex-Abigail Williams) and Lee Smith (Estradasphere), both helping us (separately) on various future tours. As well, guitarist Chase Fraser (Animosity, Son of Aurelius) will bring his amazing guitar skills to the table.

We will be back for the Summer Slaughter tour 2010 with a new lineup and ready to perform a new set list featuring songs from our upcoming album 'Polarity' which will be released 7/27 on Nuclear Blast Records."

"We would like to extend an end of the year thanks to all of the fans who supported Decrepit Birth over the past year. Whether you caught us live, checked out our music online, picked up our CDs or merch, or even just helped spread the word about a show -- we really appreciate the support! We have really tried to keep busy since the release of the last album, Diminishing Between Worlds; and now that we are about to enter the studio to record our 3rd album, called Polarity, we are planning a very intense touring schedule to support the new album. The band is looking to get a chance to perform in many places that we have yet to see.. as well as returning to Europe and North America for some awesome tours!! 2009 has been very good to us, and now we are proud to announce that Diminishing Between Worlds has been included in MetalReview's 'The 100 Most Essential Albums of the Decade.' We are VERY honored to be a part of this list, alongside some of the top names in metal! Thank you so much MetalReview!!

"We just got home from an amazing tour with Vader, Warbringer, The Amenta, Augury, Swashbuckle, Rose Funeral and Lazarus A.D. Thanks to every crew member and band member.. that was one hell of a kick ass tour!! With the exception of the scumbag promoter in Virginia Beach who ripped us off, eat shit...

We are very excited to get the album recorded and released! We have been performing a couple of the new songs live and the response has been awesome! So we hope you, our fans, enjoy the direction of the new material.. Which can only be described as 'death metal from the soul.' This will certainly be our most catchy material yet, although still brought to you in a brutal and progressive way that people have come to know Decrepit Birth for. This will also be the band's first release on Nuclear Blast Records.. Which we are very proud of due to their amazing reputation and professionalism. We will be bringing you video clips and updates from the band during the recording process so stay tuned! More...

NEMHF 2009 Adds Third Stage

The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will introduce an additional stage this year dedicated to up and coming bands.

The third stage, sponsored by Deathcote Records, will be located at Chasers Nightclub, located behind the Palladium on the corner of Martin Luther King and Commercial streets. The main festival will be taking place at the Palladium.

“There are so many great bands and not enough time to get all of them on during the course of two days,” said festival co-organizer Sott Lee. “Adding a third stage is a great way for us to showcase some of the developing bands and it’s a terrific opportunity for these bands to play alongside some of today’s top metal and hardcore bands.”

The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will take place on Friday, April 17 and Saturday, April 18, with the Atticus pre-party on Thursday, April 16. This year’s event is presented by Randall Amplifiers, Washburn Guitars and Eden Electronics. Metal Blade Records will present the main stage. Prosthetic Records will present the second stage.

The Atticus-sponsored pre-party will be a unique event that will be combining film and music, kicking off with a screening of official film sponsor Anchor Bay's film "Crowley," co-written by none other than Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson. The provocative supernatural thriller is the tale of a virtual reality experiment gone wrong, sending the soul of the British occultist Aleister Crowley into the body of a shy university professor. But even as Crowley creates all-new orgies of depraved pleasures and black magic, he is now preparing to unleash the ultimate occult event upon the world. Also showing is "Anvil! The Story of Anvil," a sometimes revealing, sometimes hilarious documentary about the legendary Canadian metal band. The movie follows best friends Robb Reiner and Lips as they make a pact to rock together forever. Their band, Anvil, hailed as the "demi-gods of Canadian metal, " influenced a musical generation that includes Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax, despite never hitting the big time. Following a calamitous European tour, Lips and Robb, now in their fifties, set off to record their 13th album in one last attempt to fulfill their boyhood dreams. The film will be followed by a performance by the band itself. The pre-party will also be held at the Palladium. Admission is free with a weekend pass or $15 for non-ticket holders.

Prices this year are $40 for Friday, $45 for Saturday or $79 for a 2-day ticket that also includes free admission to the kick off party on Thursday. Tickets are available at all Strawberries, FYE Stores, online at tickets.com or by calling (800) 477-6849. Tickets are available now.

Bands scheduled to perform this year include: More...
