Brain Drill Signs To Metal Blade Records

Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of Oregon/California death metal band Brain Drill. Formed in the summer of 2005 by Dylan Ruskin (guitars) his next goal was to find a drummer that could actually play death metal and not just claim they could. Dylan ended up recruiting drummer Marco Pitruzzella, former drummer of VITAL REMAINS, VILE, VORNAGAR, ATROCIOUS HYSTERIA, NUMA, and a few other extreme metal bands. After a few months of jamming Steve Rathjen was then later put onto vocals. Rounding out the band is Jeff Hughell on bass who joined the band in the winter of 2006. With mind blowing style and speed, inventing a 10 fingered tapping technique using a 7 string bass, and the song learning capabilities of a genius it was quite obvious he was a perfect fit into this now 4-piece arsenal.

As of now, BRAIN DRILL has shared the stage with bands such as: CANNIBAL CORPSE, DYING FETUS, NECROPHAGIST, JOB FOR A COWBOY, UNMERCIFUL, ALL SHALL PERISH, DECREPIT BIRTH, and very many other extreme metal bands. In addition BRAIN DRILL has come in at number 8 in the top 10 MySpace grindcore band charts in the world and has also come in at number 11 in the top 20 MySpace death metal charts in the world.

“We are blown away to be able to put out our first album ever on Metal Blade records, with label mates like Cannibal Corpse, Job For A Cowboy, Hate Eternal and Cattle Decapitation, and a history of working with bands like Slayer and Metallica. We are ready to make Brian Slagel and everybody at Metal Blade proud. Witness the Brutality!!” Brain Drill

“Alex Webster of Cannibal Corpse came to us and told us we had to check out this band Brain Drill that they had played with at a stop on their most recent tour. As soon as I got to the 2nd song on the EP, I knew this was a band we had to have on our roster. They are amazing, full on, crazy, fast as hell death metal (think Spawn of Possession, Cryptopsy & Vomitory all rolled into one). Welcome to the family, guys!” Metal Blade Records – Jen Graham

Brain Drill is:

DYLAN RUSKIN-Guitar
LORD MARCO PITRUZZELLA-Drums
STEVE RATHJEN- Vocals
JEFF HUGHELL- Bass

You can check out some of the band's material on their MySpace page.

Divine Heresy Signs To Century Media

After a five-year hiatus, Dino Cazares (co-founding member of the revolutionary band Fear Factory) has triumphantly returned with a new group -- Divine Heresy. The band's members feature Cazares handling guitar and bass duties, Tim Yeung (Hate Eternal, Vital Remains) on drums and newcomer Tommy Vext on vocals. Their Century Media Records debut offering is entitled "Bleed The Fifth" and is set for an August release. (The record will be released on Century Media in North America with Roadrunner Records having the rights to all other territories).

"Bleed The Fifth" was produced by Dirty Icon (Logan Mader and Lucas Banker) and co-produced by Divine Heresy. Dirty Icon and Divine Heresy also handled the mixing duties. Joachim Luetke (Dimmu Borgir, Arch Enemy) has also created the album's striking cover art, which perfectly compliments the music's sheer intensity.

This offering is unquestionably Cazares career defining work and he states: "It took me four years to find the right musicians to make this happen and I'm very excited to finally unleash this to the world. Many people will be wondering what it sounds like, but it is hard for me to describe it. All I can say is when you hear the legendary machine gun riffs mixed with Tim Yeung's lighting speed double bass drums combined with Tommy's brutal and powerful vocals, just be prepared to face the Annihilation. I promise you will not be disappointed."

Vext states, "Approaching this I realized that I would have to bring a lot to the table working with such renown and accomplished musicians. Having everyone coming from different metal backgrounds was a challenge, but it is that exact formula that gives us such an eclectic sound. Also, having worked with vocal instructor Melissa Cross (Zen of Screaming) for the past three years I'd utilized those tools and exercises to push my abilities further than I ever imagined. I am so proud and excited to unveil this band to the world!"
