Despised Icon Launches Weekly Studio Video Blog

Montreal extreme metallers, DESPISED ICON, have started work on their new album, due later this year via Century Media Records.

Vocalist Alex Erian comments, "We're done writing and the new shit is packed with brutality. Can't wait to play these songs live! As always, our longtime buddy Yannick St-Amand will produce the whole thing and we got Zeuss and Alan Douches to take care of the mixing and mastering, so the result should sound monstrous! Our boy Felix Rancourt, the evil mastermind behind all our imagery, promised us his sickest album artwork to date." More...

Arsis Prepares For Thrash And Burn Tour

Determined to complete a tour with no car accidents, illnesses, or other distressing turmoil and ready to brave the road once again for the upcoming Thrash And Burn Tour, ARSIS bassist Noah Martin checks in to bring us up-to-date on tour preparations and the band’s newest addition:

“We’re really pumped about this tour. I don’t think there’s anything that will prevent us from finishing it. [Lead singer/guitarist] Jim [Malone]’s over his pneumonia. He’s been working out and running, and he feels better than ever. We even have new management that’s helping us move forward. They’re AMAZING. Hopefully our tour laminates will come with a lucky rabbit’s foot! [laughter] Right now we’re going over to [Anthrax singer] Dan Nelson’s place to rehearse for about three days before the Thrash And Burn tour starts. Our new drummer is Shawn Priest from Idaho. All the best drummers are coming outta nowhere from the Midwest! We screened him through his video on YouTube, and when we hooked up, he learned ‘We Are The Nightmare’ in a day and a half. We’re REALLY excited about this. We’re gonna have new drum parts in our songs off the new album. It’s gonna be WAY thrashier, more in-your-face. ‘Servants To The Night’ has been added to the set list because of Shawn. We’d like to keep him on as full-time, so we’ll see how he does on this tour. His flight to New York got delayed and he had to sleep in the airport, but he took it like a champ, so he’ll fit right in, putting up with a bunch of bullshit right from the start! [laughter] We’ll see if we can get him to drink boxed wine. First post on Blabbermouth gets a free beer at one of our shows!”

The video to the title track off of We Are The Nightmare recently received an outpouring of fan votes on MTV2's "Your Vote Counts" for inclusion on the next episode of Headbangers Ball. View the trailer to We Are The Nightmare’s bonus DVD here. An ARSIS live show photo gallery can be viewed at the Metal Fanatix website.

The Thrash And Burn North American tour features Darkest Hour (headliner), Parkway Drive, Misery Signals, Winds of Plague, Stick to Your Guns, Arsis, Abigail Williams, Arsonists Get All the Girls and After The Burial. The tour dates are as follows: More...

Never Say Die! Euro Club Tour Planned For 2008

The hugely successful Never Say Die! club tour will return this November in collaboration with Altamont Apparel.

Here is the planned Altamont Never Say Die! 2008 Club Tour line-up:

Parkway Drive
Unearth
Despised Icon
Architects
Protest The Hero
Whitechapel
Carnifex

The tour will be sponsored by Altamont Apparel, the innovative clothing brand which uniquely captures the youthful spirit of counterculture warriors - a perfect fit for those attending Never Say Die!. “Altamont Apparel was founded with music at its core, so we are both happy and proud to be the official partner of this tour” commented Scott Sentianin, Altamont Apparel. Marco Walzel, Avocado Booking, adds, “The link between punk, metal and hardcore with skateboarding and extreme sports/lifestyles has always been a strong bond. It makes perfect sense for Altamont to be a big part of this tour and I’m very happy to have them on board.”

The lineup will include PARKWAY DRIVE (Burning Heart Records) who have proven their headline status for this tour with their titanic barrage of riffs, breakdowns and high energy performances - as best evident on their many European tours (the last of which had the majority of their shows sold-out). Also no strangers to touring Europe, UNEARTH will join the tour as co-headliners in the UK and direct support in mainland Europe, and just in time as their brand new album on Metal Blade Records will be hitting the streets. DESPISED ICON have exploded onto the scene with loads of touring and have helped define deathcore destruction with a highly acclaimed new record on Century Media Records. The UK is represented on this tour by ARCHITECTS, recently signed to Century Media, who bring the chaos factor to the bill with their vicious metalcore assault. Bringing a flair for the technical and progressive end of the spectrum, PROTEST THE HERO have been lavished with rave reviews from the press for their new album and tireless touring. Rounding out the package are two up-n-coming brutal acts from the U.S. that are rapidly gaining steam and buzzing in the underground, WHITECHAPEL (Metal Blade Records) and CARNIFEX (Victory Records) who will both have new records in time for this tour.

“We’ve worked very hard to raise the bar for this tour,” says Ivonne Davies-Kreye, Avocado Booking. “It is easily the best line-up and will prove to be the best concert going experience of 2008.”

Every Time I Die Drummer to Sit Out of Tour

Buffalo’s EVERY TIME I DIE are set to hit the road WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9th alongside Killswitch Engage, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Parkway Drive. The band has issued a statement with regards to the absence of their drummer Michael Novak on this run:

“We here at Every Time I Die INC. regret to inform you that Michael "Ratboy/ Red Nuff/ Nuff Daddy/ Ol Hundreds" Novak will not be taking part in our upcoming tour with Killswitch Engage. He has suffered a very painful back injury while slam dunking a basketball at the park. Fortunately a wonderful gentleman by the name of Steve Bache from He Is Legend will be filling in drumming duties. We hope that Mike recovers quickly and is both behind his kit and back on the court in no time. See you soon. Love ETID” More...

Suicide Silence To Support Behemoth On Tour

Century Media Records Germany reports:

SUICIDE SILENCE has just secured the direct support slot on the upcoming BEHEMOTH tour in February before they will come back with PARKWAY DRIVE and BURY YOUR DEAD in April/May.

Those diverse packages already show that Suicide Silence adheres to no preconceived notions and refuses to be pigeonholed into any specific genre. Their music clearly represents their many influences, incorporating a savage mix of death metal, grindcore, black metal, hardcore and doom elements into each track. The songs are dynamic and crushing, shifting effortlessly from insane grind chaos into surgically precise, disorienting time signatures topped off with snail-paced grooves and destructive breakdowns. Check out songs from The Cleansing at: http://www.myspace.com/suicidesilence

Suicide Silence’s album The Cleansing will finally hit Europe on February 18th and the UK on March 31st. It will come with the exclusive European bonus track 'A Dead Current' as well as a CD enhancement offering 6 live clips from US and UK.

Upon the US release of the album Suicide Silence made a huge statement to the metal world by entering the US Billboard Top 200 chart at #94, which marks the highest debut ever for a new Century Media artist.
