New York tech metal manipulators Car Bomb will kick off the New Year with two shows this weekend alongside hometown hardcore heroes Vision Of Disorder.
On Saturday, January 26th Long Island’s favorite sonic contortionists will level the stage of Dingbatz in Clifton, New Jersey and again on Sunday at The Chance in Poughkeepsie, New York. Comments the band on performing with V.O.D.:
“On Long Island, these guys were always the band to beat in the hardcore scene. Breakdowns that came out of nowhere damn smack in the middle of a song? No one was fucking doing that, and no one was heavier. We’re definitely honored to throw down with our local compadres.”

New York tech metal contortionists Car Bomb will take their instrumental acrobatics to the stages of Brooklyn this holiday weekend. The festivities commence with an unofficial CD release party at the Knitting Factory on November 24th. On the following night the band will ravage the stage of Saint Vitus alongside New York death metal titans Suffocation. Additionally, the band will appear at The Studio at Webster Hall in Manhattan for a pre-New Years blowout with Resolution15.
This weekend’s shows mark the first performances for the Long Island natives since Hurricane Sandy destroyed their studio located at The South Sound music complex new the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn.
Said the band in a collective statement: “We are deeply saddened not only by our own losses but the losses incurred by all of our friends at The South Sound. The total destruction that occurred at The South Sound was both devastating and incomprehensible. Gear that had taken a lifetime to acquire was destroyed in a matter of hours. As tragic as the events of Hurricane Sandy were, we were relieved to learn that no one affiliated with The South Sound was injured and that the losses were simply financial -- along with some blood, sweat, and tears on the part of the guys running the place. We know how much time and effort those guys put into making The South Sound a great place for musicians to do their thing and we truly feel for their loss. This Thanksgiving, CAR BOMB is thankful that we all survived the events of Hurricane Sandy, as did our family and our friends. Everything else is replaceable.”

Car Bomb recently unleashed the new single “Third Revelation,” which features guest vocalist Joseph Duplantier of Gojira. The track will be on new album "w^w^^w^w." Check it out the song at this location.
The following press release was also issued about the band: "Whether chopping a riff into pieces, reversing it, cutting it short, or messing with the tempo, Car Bomb’s unique style of progressive metal is the product of dissecting ideas and beating them to death. The result is equivalent to a jet engine propelling gravel into your skull. Car Bomb combines the polyrhythmic and mathematical madness of Meshuggah and Dillinger Escape Plan with the rage and energetic fury of Coalesce and Converge. Though their songs are musically challenging, Car Bomb refuse to dilute their ruthless execution. Their intent is to assault the listener in any and every way possible – compositionally, sonically, and lyrically."
New York's Car Bomb has posted a new single online titled "Third Revelation," which features a guest appearance from Gojira's Joseph Duplantier. Check out the song in the player below.

Bolt Thrower has released this bit of news regarding their first trip to the USA in 14 years:
"Due to the fact that we are not real festival lovers or great fans of flying, the chances of us ever coming to the States for a one-off show was always very small. But after years of relentless emails from Ryan we've finally given in. It's hard to believe that it's been 14 years since we last played in the US, so we are very happy to announce that we are finally coming back. Bolt Thrower will be playing Maryland Deathfest VII, on May 22-24, 2009, at Sonar, Baltimore, MD."
A few more bands were exected to be included in this announcement, but the organizers are still working on the details. Therefore, another announcement is expected with even more band confirmations in the near future, as they wrap up the booking process for Maryland Deathfest 2009
