Carcass Heartwork Plays on Heart Strings at Mohawk

The line to get into Mohawk was split in half between minors and adults. Although The Black Dahlia Murder has more than a decade under its 30-something beltline, the band is still a hot commodity among young listeners. The older demographic spawned by Carcass and Gorguts wasn't always welcoming to the 'core kids and their icons, TBDM; however, in terms of attendance, Decibel Magazine was onto something when they squeezed together, and I do mean squeeze, these disparate bands.

Baltimore, Maryland upstarts, Noisem provided a jolting dose of death/thrash. Featuring tracks culled from their recent "Agony Defied" album, the A389 recording artist played fast and spurned on oncoming body-mass wall. Standing on the first balcony, I often found myself checking out the bang bodies below. Long-hairs and spiked dos came together, often in a brutal-yet-loving fashion.

'Hey just to give everyone an update on what is going on for me in 2014. Origin has completed the record 'Omnipresent' I am extremely happy with the outcome and can't wait until everyone gets to hear it!

"The DVD is coming along nicely but it will take a few months to complete everything. After it's completion I will be able to start sending out perks to all the contributors. I would like to thank everyone for their support this could not have happened without you. I will keep everyone updated as it progresses.

"I have been getting asked about the Gorguts up and coming dates lately. I will not be joining Gorguts on the up and coming tours.

"Luc Lemay has decided to take out Patrice Hamelin for all dates in 2014. I can't say I am not disappointed but I respect his decision and it allows me to concentrate on Origin, the DVD, other projects and future drum clinics/workshops. I am very happy to say that some Gorguts material will be included on my up and coming DVD."

Luc Lemay also issued the following statement:

"I'm writing today to share with you that we will now have a new drummer sitting behind the kit for Gorguts. Unfortunately, John won't be playing with us anymore.

"When I first asked John, Colin and Kevin to join me to be part of Gorguts, rule number one, for me, has always been that each of their respective bands and solo career would always come first. More...
