In the latest entry of his "Jumping Darkness Parade" blog for MetalSucks, DAATH guitarist Eyal Levi has revealed that he and fellow DAATH shredder Emil Werstler are working on a record with CYNIC drummer Sein Reinert, to be released on Magna Carta Records in Spring 2010. He also revealed that DAATH will return to the studio in April 2010 to begin recording their follow-up to "The Concealers." An excerpt from the blog follows:
"I’ve had music writing on my mind a lot these days. Maybe its because I have a lot on my plate. The record I’m doing with Emil from DAATH and Cynic’s Sean Reinert needs to be delivered by the first of the year. It’s going to be released in the spring of 2010. My side project wants to record an EP of still to be written material this December. And last but not least, DAATH is looking to go into the studio in April to record our next one. We’d like for it to be out by the end of Summer 2010.
"That’s a shit load of music to write in a very short period of time if you consider that we’re still touring. Some advice I get from people is 'Don’t rush.' That's good advice. None of this is going to be rushed and it will all get what it needs and wants so that it can grow into the work of art it deserves to become. I think I've figured out how to write on the road and this next tour will be the perfect situation for that. We are sharing the bus with a straightedge band. Can't be partying like usual because my health could relapse. Instead of staring into space and wishing I could party, I'll occupy my time with creative things. So I’ll be writing music on the road. And a lot of it!"

Blackguard vocalist Paul Ablaze has checked in with the following Summer Slaughter Tour recap and new album update:
"Hey everyone! Paul Ablaze here. I'm very sorry for the lack of updates, these things slip my mind sometimes . But here it is finally (better late than never i suppose) a little something to let you all know what's gone down and what's in the works!
"Summer Slaughter Re-cap (i started writing this a while ago)
"This years summer slaughter has come and gone. Beers were drunk, blood was shed, vomit covered jeans, didn't see anyone cry but who knows? Point is no one came out the other end of this beast unchanged in some way, and we are without a doubt stronger than we've ever been as a band because of it.
This being only our second full north american tour we had everything to prove to both the fans and our peers, and i believe we won the respect of both along the way. I had said early on in the tour how amazed i was on how social everyone was and how much we as a tour came together and pulled for one another. I truly believe that the only reason this tour finished when it was suppose to and not 4 weeks earlier was because of the strength in character everyone displayed and how devoid everyone was of any kind of "ego" or "rock star" mentality.
"There are certain memories that surly stick out amongst the never ending (sometimes fuzzy) memories of good times that happened over the past month and a half. a few note worthy ones include: More...

Los Angeles blackened-death metal band ABYSMAL DAWN recently returned home after an North American tour with GOATWHORE, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS, DAATH and SUCCESS WILL WRITE APOCALYPSE ACROSS THE SKY.
Vocalist/guitarist Charles Elliott provides a tour recap, “We’re back after a crazy 9 weeks on the road with GOATWHORE, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS, DAATH and SUCCESS WILL WRITE APOCALYPSE ACROSS THE SKY! It was the longest tour we ever had the pleasure of being a part of and we had a fucking blast! We played a lot of places that we’d either never had the pleasure of playing or hadn’t played since 2006, and we had a great time bringing the metal to you fuckers. We want to thank all the people that came out to the shows a tore shit up, drank with us, smoked with us, hung out with us, let us crash at their houses, or were just plan down to earth metal maniacs. You guys made it worth while!” More...
Abigail Williams is currently winding down dates for the ongoing Conquered & Cursed Tour have to sit out the final week of dates due to sickness within the band. The nine-week tour has seen the band, alongside Goatwhore, Daath, Abysmal Dawn, and S.W.W.A.A.T.S. traveling the country all summer and the (swine?) flu has battled them the entire way. Several members have had to visit emergency rooms in the past week and are under doctor supervision to regain their strength. Touring in support of their full-length debut, "In the Shadow of a Thousand Suns," the band extends apologies to fans they will not see in having to cancel their final performances. More...
In his latest "Jumping Darkness Parade" column on MetalSucks, Daath guitarist Eyal Levi reveals why he had to miss over a week of the band's tour: he was hospitalized with a bad case of pneumonia and came close to death. An excerpt follows:
"For those that don’t know, pneumonia is a danger if you have a broken rib. When your rib is broken, you don’t breathe as deep because it hurts. You aren’t really using your lungs to their fullest. which means that whatever bacteria, fungus, homeless people, or stalker fans that you inhale can just hang out and fester. Well, considering that this was somewhere around twenty five days into one of the most brutal tours of our career, I bet that what was residing in there, growing, wasn’t too good.
"So anyways, they gave me some antibiotics and sent me on my way. I thought I was going to get better. We kept on playing. Hit NYC, played a great show which left me almost unable to speak ’cause I could barely breathe. The next night we played one of the best shows of our career at Jaxx. Things were going straight except that I was feeling worse and worse. Right after Jaxx, it was right back to where it was prior to my Nashville emergency room visit. I was FUCKED UP. Breaking fevers all the time, couldn’t breathe, couldn’t move, couldn’t live, etc.
"In Hartford I just couldn’t take it anymore and did the thing I’ve never in my entire time playing shows even considered doing. I called a cab and left the show. Went to the emergency room. Didn’t play the show with the band. I just couldn’t. I felt like such an asshole and so pathetic, but I just couldn’t do it.
"Well, I thought I was going to be in there for a night and they were going to tell me to go home. Boy I was wrong. They admitted me to the hospital and began a week of hell that I wouldn’t wish on anyone except for my worst enemies, and dudes, I do not wish it on you. I’m not going to go into the hospital stay too much, except to say that it sucked ass. I’ve never come that close to dying and I hope to never come that close to dying again. Makes you realize how quickly things can change and how easy it is to go down.
"I was discharged yesterday. I flew home. I’m not healed, I’m not 100 percent, and I’ve got weeks until I am, but I’m going to live and life will go on. Emil and I just signed a deal with Magna Carta records and are going to write an album of guitar music with Sean Reinert from Cynic. That’s on my agenda, and then after that its Europe with DAATH, Unearth, Chimaira, and Throwdown. I can’t wait to do these things. I’m fucking ready."

The Atlanta based quintet DÅÅTH recently unleashed a straight shot of pure, unfiltered American metal upon the masses with their new full-length album, The Concealers, which is garnering numerous rave reviews (see below). The group just completed a very successful month-long North American trek alongside Dragonforce and continues their touring onslaught throughout the summer touring the U.S. with Goatwhore, Abigail Williams, SWWAATS and Abysmal Dawn. Be sure to visit the bands official Myspace Page to view their complete touring itinerary.
DÅÅTH shot a video for the scathing new track, “Day Of Endless Light,” with director Robin Fuller (Ghost of a Thousand, Shaped By Fate) last month and click on the link below to for a sneak peak into the madness that awaits.
Eyal Levi (guitars) further comments: “DÅÅTH is definitely back. We just wrapped up our North American tour with Dragonfoce and Cynic. Now that the dust has settled we have, with proof and via memories, come to the conclusion that this was our best tour ever. On all fronts: crowd reaction, merch sales and new friendships. And any memories we’re too blacked out to remember were caught on film anyways! We have tons of amazing footage from this tour that we’ll be sharing with you guys for a while. Both bands are incredibly easy to tour with because they are composed of such great individuals. Like Kevin Talley was perplexed about, ‘Man, there are no douchebags on this tour! Usually there’s at least one.’ I couldn’t ask for a better tour to come back on after our seemingly centuries long break.
“Coming up in the world of DÅÅTH are quite a few badass and exciting things. First we have a video we’re about to release for ‘Day Of Endless Light.’ I’ve said in the past that I didn’t want us to create just another metal video with five dudes jamming in an abandoned building or warehouse. We wanted a video that was more of a visual work that just carried a dark and slick vibe and could be considered an animated work of art. Well, so far I personally have only seen 10 seconds of it and holy shit! It is definitely on the way to achieving the goal. Director Robin Fuller and art director Jorden Haley are the kind of people I need to always be working with.
“Also, there are some exciting tours in the works. In June and July we’ll be doing the ‘Conquer and Curse’ tour which features our brothers from Goathwore. I can’t say enough how much I admire and love this band. Headlining will be Abigail Williams and the first two bands will be Abysmal Dawn and Success Will Write Apocalypse Across The Sky. This tour is going to be a 180 from the Dragonforce tour and I’m excited for the different experience. We also just confirmed that we’re touring Europe with Chimaira, Unearth, and Throwdown this fall! I don’t need to explain why this is such an amazing tour but let me tell you, we are fucking STOKED to be a part of it! This also will be our second time through Europe with Unearth and can’t wait to share the road with those model human beings.”
The Concealers was produced and mixed by Jason Suecof and Mark Lewis (Trivium, All That Remains, Devildriver) and features unparalleled musicianship along with the extraordinary vocals of Sean Z.

Cleveland groove metallers CHIMAIRA have just announced a European tour alongside their old friends from Boston, UNEARTH, as well as California's straight-edge outfit THROWDOWN. After a highly successful US tour supporting the likes of KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and DISTURBED, CHIMAIRA is finally going to hit Europe and spread the infection.
Commented CHIMAIRA singer Mark Hunter: “We’re very excited to get back to Europe and headline. We’ll be playing a bunch of new countries we’ve never been to, including Russia. We plan to play a great mixture of old and new songs, and we’re bringing some of the best bands our genre has to offer with us.“
CHIMAIRA recently released their new album, "The Infection," which entered the German album chart on #86 and landed at #28 on the UK's official Indie charts. The album was their second on Nuclear Blast after 2007's critically-acclaimed "Resurrection," and the tour marks their first European visit since a hugely successful headlining run back in March 2008.

Atlanta based quintet DAATH is about to unleash their brand-new album “The Concealers”, which will be released on April 20th (Europe) and April 21st (US). The band just filmed a video for the song “Day Of Endless Light” with director Robin Fuller (Ghost Of A Thousand, Shaped By Fate) and you can now check out some photos from the shoot at the band's myspace page.
Eyal Levi (guitars) further states:
“I hate music videos. Always have. There’s been a few exceptions over the years like the old Tool videos or White Stripes videos but for the most part they suck. Especially metal videos. How many times can we watch a group of burly dudes throwing down in a warehouse or abandoned building? With this video that was the LAST thing I wanted for us. I set out to find a team that would give us an actual work of art which could be watched and enjoyed regardless of the music. We ended up with Robin Fuller directing. We chose him because of his amazing animation skills and overall enthusiasm for the vision. The vision was to have a video shot in the style of a Frank Miller film (Sin City) and have those shots interwoven with the art and design that Jorden Haley has created for us with “The Concealers”. This will not be your typical metal video.”
In addition to that, the band has posted the brand-new track “Silenced” from the forthcoming album “The Concealers” which can be found on the band's Myspace as well.
Right on time with the album’s release, DAATH will be touring the US in April/May with Dragonforce and Cynic. Visit their MySpace page to view the full list of dates. Also, the following European festivals have been confirmed:
August 7, 2009 – Bad Berka (D) @ Party San Open Air
August 14, 2009 – Dinkelsbühl (D) @ Summer Breeze Festival
August 16, 2009 – Derby (UK) @ Bloodstock Open Air
