Cannibal Corpse Issues Tour Road Report

Cannibal Corpse bassist Alex Webster has issued the following road report from their current tour alongside The Faceless, Neuraxis, and Obscura:

"Hey everybody, we've been on the road in the USA and Canada for around two weeks and so far the tour has been completely killer. Attendance has been great at all of the shows, with two of the shows selling out completely (Tulsa and Edmonton). The fact that we have such a kick-ass lineup of bands on the tour (The Faceless, Neuraxis, and Obscura) has to be contributing to the great success of the tour.

"We just finished a show in Winnipeg and it was another amazing audience like the rest of the shows so far on the tour. Of all of the shows so far the Winnipeg gig probably had the most stage diving, so we were dodging flying bodies throughout our performance...it got pretty crazy up there at times, but it really added to the energy of the show.

"Tomorrow we head to Thunder Bay, a city we have only played once before if I remember correctly. That was back in 2004 and we had a great time then so we expect more of the same tomorrow. After Thunder Bay we're heading down into the States for a few shows, then back up to Canada before working our way back down the East Coast to our home state Florida. We want to thank all of the fans that have come out to the shows so far, and we look forward to seeing the rest of you at the upcoming shows of the Evisceration Plague tour. Until then, stay brutal!!!"

Atheist Announces US Tour Dates

Florida technical metal band, ATHEIST will be touring North American this July with THE FACELESS, Psyopus, The Agonist, and Gnostic. GNOSTIC, is a band made up of 3/4 of ATHEIST’s members. Atheist and Gnostic drummer Steve Flynn comments on the tour:

"We're absolutely thrilled to be doing this tour with such an incredible lineup of brutal technical bands. This bill is going to just peel your face off. Not only are all the bands insanely technical and heavy, but the lineup also covers a broad spectrum of style - from the almost avant-garde sound of PSYOPUS to the straight up technical death metal sounds of GNOSTIC and ATHEIST. Then you throw in the more modern break-neck technicality, unrivaled musicianship and speed of THE FACELESS, and the brutality of THE AGONIST, and you've got yourself one hell of a night. This will also be somewhat experimental in the world of technical death metal, as 3 of us (me on drums, Chris Baker on Guitars, and Jonathan Thompson on bass (in GNOSTIC) and guitars (in ATHEIST)) are in two bands and playing TWO shows per night. I can't recall a similar situation in technical death metal. It will be a marathon-esque physical and mental exercise. This tour will also be GNOSTIC's debut to the world as we're supporting our first release via Season of Mist: 'Engineering the Rule' in July." More...

Too Much Is Never Enough: Technical Metal in 2009

Earlier in the year Metal Underground presented its annual “Best Of” awards and with his finger always on the pulse, deathbringer mentioned a new dominance in metal leading us into 2009. Maybe you’ve noticed the extra acoustic interludes, the blazing shred solos, the disjointed poly-rhythms or maybe you haven’t - but either way a cloud of progressive influence has undoubtedly emerged over the metal scene. Not just in our minds here at MU, but in the minds of fans Opeth, Cynic, Meshuggah, Nachtmystium and Ihsahn stood out with impressive 2008 releases. Even more excitement and interest has been generated by collaborations between Ihsahn and Opeth, and 2009 hasn’t let up with Mastodon’s progressive opus “Crack The Skye” and Obscura’s “Cosmogenesis” leading the charge.

So what magic is at work here aside from great prog-metal releases? Larger bands such as the explosive power metal act DragonForce and progressive groovers Mastodon have played a large part in the uprising of the pursuit of extreme talent for more mainstream metal fans - opening legions of otherwise clueless greenhorns to the bar of instrumental ability. Old hands such as Deicide, Cannibal Corpse and numerous thrash acts have also not been untouched by the progressive aura and have regained the thirst for pushing technical boundaries - a truly founding ideal of metal if ever there was one. Another force at play here is the power the internet has had in exposing technical freak shows like Necrophagist as well as many young tech-metal heads being introduced to metal and fostered through 90s progressive acts such as Tool or Dream Theater. Not enough for you? Let’s take a little trip back in time then. More...
