IWrestledABearOnce Switches To Black Metal

Iwrestledabearonce has announced a change in musical direction. The group’s foray into black metal is exemplified by their newly designed logo and band photo, which can be viewed below.

“We were sick of getting lumped in with ‘scene’ and ‘whatever-core’ bands, so we decided to embrace our roots and just go straight black metal on the new album,” says guitarist Steven Bradley. “I'd say 90% of the new record is straight-up black metal, so we had to change our image to match...Because of course that's just as important, if not more so, than the music.”

The first song from Iwrestledabearonce’s forthcoming Century Media Records CD will premiere at www.MetalSucks.net on Thursday, May 19. This will mark the band’s first release since 2010’s "It’s All Happening" three disc deluxe reissue CD.

This trek also marks Emmure's first trip back in Europe since the “Never Say Die Tour."

Vocalist Frankie Palmeri states "We are thrilled to announce our upcoming European tour dates! So many brutal bands, we couldn't be happier to have with us to bring down the house!"

Johnny from Winds of Plague further comments: “We are continuing our global domination campaign into 2011 with the announcement of our participation in the first ever European/UK 'Mosh Lives Tour' headlined by our good friends in Emmure. The tour's line-up is insane and will prove to be an awesome, exciting show from start to finish. This will be our first tour after the release of our new album, Against The World, and we plan to throw in some new tracks into the mix of some Decimate The Weak favorites. This will be our most energetic and relentless set list to date. You have been warned.”

War From A Harlot's Mouth states: "We're stoked to announce the The Most Lives European tour with our buddies in Emmure. After playing last year's Never Say Die!! tour with them we're more than excited to get back on the road with these guys once again. With Winds of Plague and IWABO all bands make for a nicely diverse package, so this tour is most definitely gotta have something for everyone! We can't wait to get started."

IWrestledABearOnce Working On New Album

IWrestledABearOnce has built itself a studio to being recording a new album. The band members will be handling the production duties themselves and have already kicked off drum tracking for the album. Assisting in the production and also mixing the LP will be Ryan Boesch (Foo Fighters, Melvins, Andrew WK). The band has also launched a Tumblr account to document the experience at this location.

Guitarist Steven Bradley had the following to say: "Well it's been exactly two years since we were in the studio recording 'It's All Happening' and.. well... a shit ton has happened! We have made more friends/fans than I ever thought possible and seen the world in the process! And now, after two years of almost non-stop traveling, we have spent the past few weeks writing and are ready to begin tracking our second full length! This time around, we decided to just buy some new recording gear and I will be producing/engineering/mixing the album with some help from our 'sixth Beatle' and co-producer on the last album Ryan Boesch. If you liked our first EP and 'It's All Happening', then chances are you will enjoy this album too. We try to continuously evolve and push the envelope further in every direction, but we definitely still sound like us. Thanks for the support over the past few years and we're beyond stoked to see you back on tour in 2011 with some new songs in our set!"

On December 28th the PS3 version of Rock Band gets more Suicide Silence, All That Remains, and Between the Buried and Me. Continuing to beef up its metal selection, the Wii edition gets IWrestledABearOnce, Demon Hunter, and Asking Alexandria on January 4th.

Metal Bits

Sometimes there are interesting bits in the metal world that aren’t exactly newsworthy on their own, might not qualify as “just for fun,” or might even be too old to warrant a new post of its own. So here’s a round-up of some interesting metal bits around the ‘net this week:

Episode 3 of "Shit Phil Says” is now up on Metal Injection.

Abigail Williams members lob a dildo at IWrestledABearOnce via Metal Sucks.

An acoustic "Radio Disney Version" of Slayer's "Raining Blood" has been making rounds online:

And from the same video author I discovered a fake Rammstein cover of "99 Luftballons" (Nena Cover):

Don't miss our own Top Ten Halloween Metal Songs list from Dan of Autumns Eyes.

And worth re-linking here, is "Another 'Hardcore Dancing How-To' Video" that Metal Injection uncovered.
