Metal Injection has posted a video clip online of Summer Slaughter bands discussing the future of extreme metal, which can be viewed below. Metal Injection also commented:
"We asked bands on the 2011 Summer Slaughter festival what they think the future of extreme music will be. Some of the answers will surprise you. See how members of The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Darkest Hour, Dying Fetus, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Oceano, As Blood Runs Black, and Within the Ruins respond. More SS clips coming soon."
Metalinjection.net asked bands on the 2011 Summer Slaughter festival to talk about the best part of the tour. Check out the clip below to see how members of The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Darkest Hour, Dying Fetus, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Oceano, As Blood Runs Black, and Within the Ruins responded.
The House of Blues once again had issues with their guest list coming in too late. And of course that meant that I missed the first three acts and therefore have absolutely nothing to say about Within the Ruins, Fleshgod Apocalypse or As Blood Runs Black. Despite me giving an otherwise positive review to the new Fleshgod Apocalypse album, I had to wait in the front foyer while they played.
Thankfully, I was able to get into the venue by the time that Oceano began playing. Even though I hate ripping on hometown bands, Adam Warren sounded like he was choking on something throughout the entire set. Outside of their vocalist sounding hoarse the entire time, there was nothing remarkable about Oceano. They're yet another generic deathcore band that does nothing to stand out. I seriously can’t tell the difference between them and about twenty other deathcore bands that I've heard.
After Oceano finished playing, I was thankfully treated to Powerglove, a video game music cover band. I'll be the first guy to admit that I'm a complete and utter nerd and I've been a gamer since the Sega Genesis, so I naturally loved this band. And given that there is a TON of video game music that needs a metal remix, I'm hoping to see Powerglove have a long and prosperous career. (They still need to cover Grabbag from Duke Nukem 3D.)
And even for non-gamers out there, Powerglove put on a VERY good show. Between having a contest to bring the band the head of a stuffed animal and tossing blow-up swords into the audience, they were clearly one of the best band's there in terms of sheer theatricality. I'm really looking forward to seeing this band do a longer set in the future. More...

Within the Ruins has announced that the band will be debuting an EP titled "Omen" just months after the release of the full length "Invade." The new EP "Omen" will feature two new tracks and two cover songs - including Metallica’s "Fight Fire With Fire" and Kansas' "Carry On My Wayward Son." The EP will be released digitally and on 7" vinyl in April, 2011 and is being recorded at Dreadcore Studios in Michigan with Joshua Wickman.
Guitarist Joe Cocchi commented on the cover tracks: "Of course, Metallica was up there on the list, and after spending some time going through their discography we thought ‘Fight Fire With Fire’ would suit us best. It's a fun song, fast as fuck, and a bit challenging. It's also not as popular as a lot of their other songs. We wanted to choose a Metallica song that no one's really done before.
"The Kansas song was a whole different story as you can imagine. I don't think it's something that anyone would expect us to do, which is why we chose it. We spent a good amount of time arranging the song and attempting to add some new elements to it without completely 'butchering' it. It's definitely going to be a challenge for us, but that's the point after all. We're really excited about this project."
A video update of the band working on the new EP is also available at this location.
Within the Ruins has released a behind the scenes video giving the world a glimpse of what’s to come from the band's practice room. Check out the video clip below, which shows the band in pre-production mode for a new EP.
