Waking The Cadaver Calls It Quits

New Jersey slam outfit Waking The Cadaver has checked in with the following announcement about deciding to call it quits:

"It is with sad news that WTC will have to announce that we are no longer a band. Truth be told, we haven't been a band since our last show we played in Seattle October 2013 on the Dying Fetus/Exhumed tour.

"We were never sure what the status of the band was going to be all this time, that's why there hasn't been an announcement, but some of you have figured it out and it's only right to let everyone know the truth.

"There's no bad blood with members or anything, we are all just living busy lives and are unable to commit to the demands of being in this band. Who knows, maybe in a couple years we'll jam again.

"We want to thanks all our fans world wide...it's so amazing how you people have made this band able to do things other slam bands would dream of doing. We sincerely love you all from the bottom of our cold dead hearts!!! Stay brutal."

The band also comments on other projects from its members: "Mike Mayo is currently jamming in the grindcore outfit Ground and John Hartman is continuing his legacy in the legendary Mortal Decay. Support these awesome bands."

Waking The Cadaver released three full-length albums in its lifetime, capping with 2013's "Real-Life Death." More...

It has also been confirmed that Dying Fetus has re-signed with long time record label Relapse Records. The band commented on the signing:

"We have an addiction and have relapsed with Relapse Records. Relapse Records will remain your one stop shop for all things Dying Fetus. Re-signing with Relapse Records seemed like the right thing to do for the band as both Dying Fetus and Relapse Records have grown over the years. So our fans can look forward to more brutality from both parties."

Napalm Death Announces European Tour

British grindcore legends Napalm Death has announced that they will be embarking on a headlining tour of Europe this November, along with Macabre, Immolation and Waking The Cadaver. A message from vocalist Barney Greenway reads as follows:

"Having just returned from a string of dates in Thailand, Australia and Japan, it's a great feeling to know that Napalm is able to get out far and wide. Despite the fact that Napalm has trail-blazed across the world, I still hope next year there will be a few new places that we can set foot in where other bands just don't go. That's still a great source of excitement.

"Back in Europe, we're pleased to be coming back on tour again in November. There are old mates in Macabre and Immolation especially, and so it'll be good to round off the touring for Time Waits.. with a real blowout amongst friends. We'll be turning the setlist on it's head, I think, so expect a few things you haven't heard perhaps from the mists of time. Hopefully we'll know what the fuck we are doing when we come to play all that stuff.

"Which leads us into a new album, which we'll begin to piece together in January next year. Expect even more short, sharp shocks from what Shane and Mitch have told me so far on the music front, and lots of stop-start spontaneity. No finished lyrics as yet - I'm waiting with baited breath on the first nasty-sounding MP3 roughs so I can lock myself away and get going."

The tour dates are as follows: More...
