Guitarist Andrew Mikhail and bassist Jason Jones of Chicago death metallers, Oceano, were involved in a van accident over the weekend. Both members luckily limped out of the accident with minor injuries, however their van and the trailer that was attached to it had flipped and is need of repair. With no means of transport for the band and their gear, OCEANO was forced to cancel their dates with xLiferuinerx and Through the Fire. More...
Chicago deathcore metal band, OCEANO, are quickly gaining notoriety as the angriest band on the planet and now, it seems, their anger is starting to rub off onto their fans.
At the band's recent gig on December 10th at the Chenga 57 indoor skate park in Lorain, Ohio, the aptly-titled "Seasons Beatings" tour took a much more literal meaning. OCEANO got the crowd so worked up that a full-scale brawl erupted during the band's set, even forcing front-man ADAM WARREN to stop the band mid-song.
"Everyone was moshing and getting a little crazy - just like always;" says the former backyard wrestler. "There were these kids around the pit that kept getting hit and didn't like it too much, so they went after the kids who were hitting them. It kept going back and forth and more and more kids were getting involved each time." More...

Los Angeles, CA's ABYSMAL DAWN have announced that they will be joining forces with SOTHIS for a western US tour in December, dubbed the "Endless Wintour." This Metal Maniacs sponsored tour will kick-off on December 5th in Bakersfield, CA and will round out in Hollywood, CA on December 14th.
ABYSMAL DAWN are touring in support of their newly released Relapse debut "Programmed To Consume." The band has recently filmed the first video from the album, for title-track "Programmed To Consume." The video was shot in Los Angeles, CA with director Gary Smithson (TOMAHAWK, HIGH ON FIRE, GOATWHORE) and is expected to make its world premiere imminently. Still photos taken during the video shoot can be viewed now in the 'photos' section of the band's MySpace page. More...
Canadian deathcore destruction squad DESPISED ICON has been confirmed for a small UK tour run in August with Cephalic Carnage.
Furthermore, the band will embark on the Altamont Never Say Die! Tour 2008 in November featuring such prolific acts as Parkway Drive, Unearth, Architects, Protest The Hero and more.
Here are the latest DESPISED ICON tour dates: More...
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:
Protest The Hero
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.”
Here are the initial Never Say Die! tour dates: More...

As previously reported, With Blood Comes Cleansing was forced to drop off of the tour with Canifex and My Children My Bride and also cancelled their tour with A Plea For Purging late last year due to Dean's (their vocalist) persistent sickness and serious throat condition.
With Blood Comes Cleansing has dropped off the remainder of their tour with Carnifex, and has also cancelled their upcoming tour with A Plea For Purging. The following statement has been issued:
"We've been out with My Children My Bride and Carnifex for the past three weeks and it's been an incredible tour! But sadly, our vocalist has been sick for the majority of the time. When we were in San Antonio for Thanksgiving we took Dean to a doctor to figure out why he was sick and wasn't getting better. Turns out his throat and tonsils are swollen several times their size, and his airway was almost completely shut. The doctors said if he didn't stop immediately he would cause permanent damage to his vocal chords.
"So being without a singer, we've had to drop off the last few days of our tour with MCMB and Carnifex, and will not be going to the west coast with A Plea For Purging. Sorry to those of you who were coming out to the shows to see us. Please support A Plea For Purging as they will be touring out west!
"Be on the lookout for some weekend shows in the southeast. We'll announce them as we get things booked. For those of you who pray, please keep Dean in your prayers."
Victory Records has signed Fallbrook, California deathcore act CARNIFEX. More info on the band, including tunes, can be found at their MySpace page.
