Born Of Osiris Comments On Forthcoming Album

Lee McKinney, guitarist of Born Of Osiris, has issued the following statement in regards to the band's current stint in the recording studio.

"As for the new album, I should start by saying it’s WAY heavier than anything the band ever released. There is definitely nothing we’ve done that’s anywhere near this heavy. We have moved onto seven strings and it couldn’t have complimented our sound any better. We brought back the ‘BOO-bounce’ on this one. It’s definitely a really fun and upbeat album. We’ve also been writing this album for a long time.

"We had 16 to 18 songs going into the studio and we are going to be leaving with 12 songs that we feel are the strongest. We all live in a house together and that has really upped the creativity level. We go from on tour to living at home together, so we are all focusing on the band constantly. Also, the addition of our new guitar player Jason Richardson has increased the amount of shred on this album.

"There are some really incredible guitar solos on this album from the both of us. It takes the band to a whole new level of musicality. This album contains an awesome mix of our most heavy, most technical, most atmospheric and most beautiful melodies ever. No matter what album you’ve liked better of ours so far, this one tops both easily. We are producing this album at Bota Studio outside of Chicago, IL. Brandon Paddock (John Feldman’s engineer) will be taking up mixing duties on this one.

"As for the tour, this will be the last time we are going to be playing so much of The New Reign and A Higher Place. Starting next year we are going to be playing as much of this new album as we can. We will definitely be playing a new song live on this tour. We just wish we would have had the chance to release it to everyone before we start playing it every night. Aside from us, All That Remains is a great band and label mates Asking Alexandria will be joining us on the tour, so come on out and hang with us. It’s going to be a night to remember, we promise."

Animals As Leaders Releases New Single

Instrumenal/progressive metal group Animals As Leaders have been very active recently. The band's new single, “Wave of Babies,” is available for download exclusively on iTunes. Additionally, Tosin Abasi, who is the band's leader and plays an eight string guitar, has released a guitar tutorial that shows how to play part of “Wave of Babies.” This tutorial can be found on GuitarWorld.com. Abasi commented on the whole shebang:

"This is a track I did with Misha ‘Bulb’ Mansoor (Periphery) shortly after the Animals as Leaders album was finished. Apparently the musical ideas weren't exhausted during the album sessions and we still had some collaborative momentum left in us. It's very possible that we'll be adding this song to our live set during the Summer Slaughter tour in July so make sure to come out early to catch us!"

Animals As Leaders will soon be on tour on the Summer Slaughter Lineup, following up Abasi's stint with Born of Osiris on the 2009 Summer Slaughter Tour. Check out all the Animals As Leaders details, including Summer Slaughter details, at their MySpace Page.

It was the Night of the Living Shred in Metairie!

It was a dark and spooky night at the High Ground in Metairie. All the kids had come out in abundance and pack the small club to the rafters. All of a sudden, guitars started wailing, drums were pounding, the walls rattled with bass and a man screamed loud enough to pop ear drums. It was Night of the Living Shred! More...

Summer Slaughter Murders New Orleans

The Summer Slaughter Fest is correctly named. When the tour arrives in your town, prepare for a bloodbath of immense proportions. Decibel, Affliction and Fangoria bring you a huge tour consisting of Blackguard, Decrepit Birth, After the Burial, Beneath the Massacre, Origin, Born of Osiris, Dying Fetus, Winds of Plague, Darkest Hour, Ensiferum, Suffocation, and Necrophagist with Behemoth joining the show on some dates. Impressed? Did I also mention that the ticket prices are extremely affordable to fit into your budget during this economic downturn? That’s a deal you can’t beat. So if you’re lucky enough to have a Slaughter in your town this summer, I suggest you don’t miss it.

In the sweltering, higher-than-average heat of New Orleans, the Summer Slaughter Tour stops to do a little killing. It wasn’t an official stop, but I would like to thank all of the bands for taking their day off to rock our town. The madness began at three o’clock. All of the bands kicked ass for about half an hour each. Blackgaurd, After the Burial, Origin, Beneath the Massacre and Darkest Hour were all incredible. Their merchandise was also very interesting, but with so many bands, I couldn’t afford it all. Music was blaring from the small tunnel-shaped hall that could be heard blocks away. Band members, roadies and helpful fans were constantly moving equipment in and out to accommodate the large number of bands. Yes, it was a bit hectic. But it all added to the excitement and fun nature of the show. More...
