Daath Dropped From House Of Blues Show

Daath has announced that they will not be able to play at the House of Blues show in California on their upcoming tour with Cynic and Dragonforce. The band issued the following statement about the cancelation:

"Apparently Disney doesn’t like us very much. We don’t know why, because they wouldn’t tell us but we know they don’t. And how do we know they don’t? Because they kicked us off the April 15th Anaheim House Of Blues show. I’m not going to bother justifying ourselves in light of this. Only thing I can do is give a sincere apology to any of our fans who spent money to come and see us. We will be back in the area very soon I promise."

The band will continue on the Cynic / Dragonforce tour with their appearance April 17th in Boise, Idaho at Knitting Factory and continue for the duration of the tour.

Kevin Talley Talks About New Daath Album

Kevin Talley talked with Sickdrummer.com about his experience working with Daath on their latest album:

'The new Daath was recorded by Jason Suecof and Mark Lewis (they've done Bury your Dead, Devildriver, Chimaira) down in Florida. Finally, I have been able to capture a killer drum sound with them! Utilizing real acoustics, like recording Dying Fetus's Destroy the Opposition. So this drum sound isn't all fake like 90% of the other stuff these days.

"Daath just released new music this past week and I am very stoked about the great response we've gotten. I wasn't really a part of the last Daath record, but I helped write this entire record. It really took me back to the DF days, when I could really connect with other writers who are musically capable and able to handle an asshole drummer.

"The new Daath drum parts are very similar to my old school drumming except, in my opinion, more innovative. I have always been a drummer who writes drum parts to complement, not copy, guitar riffs. This is why I didn't write well with Chimaira. They simply wanted me to copy the riffs which is boring and overdone these days.

"Now more than ever, I have taken to a very unique writing style. It is, however, very very subtle. It's like the first main riff in Sepultura's Chaos A.D. You may think the kick drums follow the riff, but they don't... The beat is different and and adds a ton of groove by complementing the riff. To notice it, you must listen to the riff and then turn off the music. Next, hum the riff in your head and imagine what beat YOU would write to that same riff. Now, turn the music back on and see if the beats match up. Sometimes they will, but mostly they won't. This is not the case when you listen to Fear Factory or Chimaira, which are more straight forward drum parts. Although I added as many good drum parts I could in Chimaira, my drumming on the self titled album is pretty average IMO."

Daath Announces New Singer, Enters The Studio

Georgia-based, forward-thinking metal band DAATH, who spent the summer of 2007 kicking up dirt on Ozzfest’s side stage, have completed their search for a new vocalist. Daath are pleased to announce Sean Z. as their new frontman.

The band, who parted ways with Sean Faber after Ozzfest, spent the autumn season holding open auditions for the position, with the unwavering goal of finding a diverse singer with enough range and power to match the band’s progressive style of metal. Fellow Atlantan Sean Z., who filled in on vocals during the band’s late Fall tour with Dark Funeral, fit the bill. Says drummer Kevin Talley, “Sean Z. brings the whole package and destroys in every aspect of the word. He sounds killer on the new material. Now, we are stronger than ever and we look forward to hitting the road this summer.”

Daath are slated to enter the studio on March 1 to record "The Concealers" with producer Jason Suecof (Trivium, Chimaira) and Mark Lewis of Florida’s Audio Hammer studios manning the boards. Guitarist Eyal Levi is thrilled about finally moving forward saying, “We’ve been biding our time for 4 years in order to be able to finally make an album the right way. We’re looking forward to making a record that reflects what Daath is truly about.”

Indeed, Daath are a conceptual act, with the lyrics from "The Hinderers" revolving around the spiritual concept of the Tree of Life/Death. On the forthcoming The Concealers, the band will explore the shadowy world of deception, the forces concealing truth and how the human psyche weaves a web of illusion. With the new vocalist in place and a new album in the works, Daath are more than prepared to expose their
brand of thinking man’s metal to the masses.

Daath Return To Tour The US with Dark Funeral

Refueled and ready to slay, Daath are returning to the US for a full-on aural assault. After spending a few days bringing a dose of Daathliness to Japan, the band is set to hit the road with death metal natives, Dark Funeral and Naglfar. Dates will span over a month, with the metal tour kicking off on October 10th in Springfield, Virginia and wrapping up on November 4th in Covington, Kentucky. This solid lineup will mark the band’s triumphant return to the US after a highly successful run on this summer’s free Ozzfest 2007.

Daath has also created a series of short videos available via their YouTube page and Roadrunner site entitled DAATHUMENTARY. Each of the video episodes is designed to take fans behind the scenes and expose the core of Daath’s drive and passion. The first installment features a backstage look at Ozzfest 2007, band banter and explanations of some of the deeper spiritual concepts of the band and music. The second installment of DAATHUMENTARY features another insight into the unpredictable lives of the band, as well as fine repair skills!

The first and second episode of DAATHUMENTARY can be viewed here.

Spawned from an esoteric heart, Daath’s compositions and credo coincide with a stream of concepts linked to the Hebrew Tree of Life/Death. In the Tree of Life/Death, there are thirteen points and each one of the songs on their Roadrunner Records debut, The Hinderers, is representative of each of these points. Produced by James Murphy (Testament, Obituary), the album has been received with high critical acclaim. The band has begun working on concepts for their next release, encompassing ideas plucked from the spiritual vein. Pursuing higher planes, Daath is metal with a conscience, sparking extreme thought within the metal community.
