The band's latest album, "The Ruiner," was released on June 24th of last year via THE END RECORDS. The album was immediately met with critical acclaim, finding its way onto many year-end best-of lists, including the number nine spot on Decibel Magazine's Top Ten. "The Ruiner" is a big step forward for the band, and this progression is clear in the album’s scathing opener, "Cooker," which is available for downloading/posting/sharing here.
Brooklyn's MADE OUT OF BABIES will be returning to Fearless Music TV this Saturday, December 20th to perform "Buffalo." The show is broadcast on Fox 5 in New York at 12:30am Saturday night, and is syndicated around the country. Check your local listings for more details.
The End Records has posted a free 16-song sampler from Amazon.com for download as MP3s. The sampler includes songs by MADE OUT OF BABIES, LORDI, MINDLESS SELF INDULGENCE, NADJA, JARBOE & JUSTIN K BROADRICK, and many more.
While no well-versed metalhead would ever consider the ambient sounds of SPYLACOPA to be "metal" by any stretch of the imagination, there are good reasons why news of a debut release from a band that unites members from so many noteworthy metal bands to be of importance. Although this slowly developing project has been Brooklyn-based former CANDIRIA guitarist John LaMaccia's baby since the band disbanded few years ago, the project has accumulated a cast of cohorts over the course of its life that have turned it into a kind of supergroup of sorts. As of now, SPYLACOPA consists of LaMaccia, Greg Puciato of DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, Julie Christmas of MADE OUT OF BABIES and BATTLE FOR MICE, Jeff Caxide of ISIS, (and formerly Chris Hornbrook of POISON THE WELL). Their debut EP will be independently released on November 4 in an extremely limited pressing.
In SPYLACOPA, LaMaccia and friends are delving even further into the atmospheric and decidedly "non-metal" aspects that makes their respective bands so unique within their sphere of music. SPYLACOPA approaches electronic music from a much different point-of-view than is typical for the genre, and as such they layer their songs with a brooding intensity that is not very different structurally from the heavier sounds of their other bands. Although SPYLACOPA has much more in common with artists such as MASSIVE ATTACK or LUSTMORD than the likes of DEP, ISIS, MADE OUT OF BABIES, or CANDIRIA, there is a different kind of rage and a chaos subliminally present within the music that makes it a great listen for even a casual fan of these musicians. Either way, it's an interesting experiment that might give you a better perspective of what is inspiring the artists in all these bands right now.

Brooklyn-based band MADE OUT OF BABIES is preparing for their CD release party on June 24th at Union Pool in Brooklyn, NY, the same day "The Ruiner" is released in stores via THE END RECORDS.
Lead singer Julie Christmas states, "Right now we're practicing to play a harder, faster, heavier, prettier and more difficult set than ever. Running samples, numerous effects and staying on top of drastic dynamic shifts in the songs is something we've never dealt with before. So far, it seems to be coming together nicely - either way the record release show (with Dianogah and The Austerity Program) on June 24th at Union Pool in Brooklyn, NY will be entertaining. A triumph or trainwreck.
"There is another show the next night (June 25th) at Shangri La in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, which is an all ages thing with Burning Brides. We also go in to Fearless Music Studios on Thursday the 26th to tape for an upcoming episode of Fearless Music TV on FOX TV. Oh yes, and with new merch in the online store and tour dates scheduled for Europe (as well as some select US shows in the works for August), the next few months should be busy."
Recent The End Records signees Made Out Of Babies is planning a "Ruiner" CD release party show on June, 24, 2008 at Union Pool, 484 Union Ave, Brooklyn, NY. Also performing on the bill are The Austerity Program and Dianogah.
