GOATWHORE have issued the following update:
“We know it has been quite some time since updates were made so we wanted to fill everyone in on what’s going on with Goatwhore.
We have currently relocated to Phoenix, AZ for a temporary time to finish work on our next album to be released through Metal Blade Records in mid-2006.
Things are pretty crazy in our hometown of New Orleans, LA still (since the devastation of Hurricane Katrina), so we decided to pack-up and head out West to finish writing on the new material.
We are currently staying with some close friends out here in Phoenix and we will have a few shows in the beginning of December to help our current situation out. Please come out and show some support and hope to see you while we are out this way.
More information will follow once we have a scheduled studio date, which would be around the end part of this year.”

GOATWHORE have announced that they will no longer be on the road for the rest of this year:
"We would like to apologize to all of the people that have come out to shows so far to see us and we haven't been there.
Internal problems have raised their ugly heads so the bans is in a state of limbo at the moment. More information will be posted in the next week. Thanks to all that came out up to the Denver, Colorado show. That was the last show for us before we headed home. Keep posted for further information."
Cannibal Corpse lead singer George "Corpsegrinder" Fischer was rushed to a hospital on Tuesday (Nov. 16) causing him to miss the group's scheduled performance at The World in Pittsburgh last night. The band, who are currently touring North America with Napalm Death, Macabre, Kataklysm and Goatwhore, did not give specifics as to what Fischer's illness was, but a member of the Cannibal Corpse road crew announced to the crowd that Fischer was "extremely sick and has spent the day in the hospital." The band proceeded to play an instrumental set and were eventually joined by Kataklysm frontman Maurizo Iacono, who valiantly handled many Cannibal Corpse classics with the aid of the crowd.
Goatwhore tentatively plan to enter the studio in March 2005 to begin recording their Metal Blade Records debut. The as-of-yet untitled record should hit stores in August/September 2005.
Birmingham's fathers of grindcore, Napalm Death, kickoff their 36-date North American tour tonight with their headlining show in Toronto, Canada. The first eight dates the band performs with Misery Index, and the remaining dates take the band across the U.S. with Cannibal Corpse, Kataklysm, and Goatwhore.
Always outspoken about politics, Napalm Death vocalist Barney Greenway had this to say about the elections:
If Bush gets voted in for another term, people really need to take a long, hard look at themselves. With Bush back in power, there'll be more unjustified military intervention, more shitty healthcare provisions for the poor, a country mired further in religious dogma etc. Not to mention seeing more of Jeb Bush's fat head on TV. On the other hand, the Democrats don't offer a real alternative. They're very close to the Republicans on a few issues, which is disappointing. I noted how some of the anti-war advocates in the Democratic Party were silenced quite early on. The crazy thing is that voting for the Green Party guy Ralph Nader is considered a pointless exercise, where as he is one of the only people to offer radical thinking. Based purely on his thoughts, I would probably go for Nader if I was an American.
That said, I think the whole system needs an overhaul. That whole 'vote-rig' thing by the Republicans in Florida last time was such a farce, people outside of the U.S. just could not believe that Americans would let something like that pass. I find it really amusing that the Republicans cast themselves as pillars of honesty when everything they do is steeped in corruption and self-interest. Similarly, I lived through Thatcher's ruthless conservatism in Britain, and I would not want to go through it again.
Napalm Death released their Century Media debut, "Leaders Not Followers: Part 2" on October 5.

Deicide have cancelled their previously announced show on October 4 at 4th & B in San Diego, California. No reason was given for the cancellation. Goatwhore, Cattle Decapitation, Jungle Rot and Gutrot will be doing a make-up show without Deicide on the same night at Brick By Brick in San Diego for only $7. A flyer for the concert can be viewed at this location.
Vader have been forced to cancel the upcoming North American tour with Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death, Goatwhore, and Kataklysm due to an injury suffered by vocalist/guitarist, Peter Wiwczarek, while on tour. The band's manager Mariusz Kmioek has released this official statement:
We are sorry to inform everyone that during Scandinavian tour (October 2004) Peter has suffered from a minor spinal injury (vertebra-related) and will have to undergo a procedure to set things right (1 week at hospital and 2 weeks of rehabilitation). The only possible date to enter the hospital and fix it is in October, so we have decided on not going on our US tour! Our first idea was to schedule the procedure at hospital next year, but it would be big risk for Peter's health.
We'd like to apologize all people - Metal Blade USA, First Row Agency, Cannibal Corpse and their booking agency, Napalm Death and all maniacs - we are very sorry and we'd like to thank everyone for all their hard work in booking and arranging this tour! It's the first cancelled tour in our long (18 years) activity, and it's really a shock for us!
Let's keep our fingers crossed everything will turn out OK.

Jungle Rot's latest CD, "Fueled by Hate," was released this summer through Olympic/Century Media Records. The follow-up to 2001's "Dead and Buried" reportedly sees the band "staying with the formula of memorable songs and catchy groves while still having the heaviness to live up to [and] exceed the current requirements for extreme music."
Keith Spera wrote a short piece on Nola.com summarizing recent activity in the New Orleans metal scene:
A flurry of recent activity has reiterated New Orleans' reputation as a hotbed of underground hard rock. Goatwhore, the fearsome black metal quartet featuring singer Ben Falgoust, guitarist Sammy Duet, bassist Patrick Bruders and new drummer Zack Simmons, recently inked a deal with Metal Blade Records, the Los Angeles label that has issued extreme music for more than 20 years, including the first albums by Metallica and Slayer. The long-running Suplecs is nearly finished recording an album with producers Pepper Keenan, best known for his long tenure with Corrosion of Conformity, and Dave Fortman, the north shore producer behind the multimillion-selling Evanescence debut. Suplecs intends to shop the new record to various labels. And the popular Discovery Channel show "Monster Garage" has used local act 4 Mag Nitrous' "Cypress, Stumps & Flies" in seven episodes; the band is also featured on the recent "Monster Garage" soundtrack CD.
"New Orleans has a good reputation (in national heavy music circles)," said Greg Eveline, the local entertainment lawyer who represents several heavy acts. "This may be the next thing, even though people don't really think about it in New Orleans."
