Hells Headbangers Releases Organ Fanzine

Hells Headbangers is proud to release the first issue of the Organ fanzine. Available in an 120-page, perfect-bound book, Organ was hand-drawn and written in an old-school cut 'n' paste style by celebrated underground artist Putrid, who's done artwork for Autopsy, Impetigo, Hooded Menace, and Acid Witch among many others. The following press release was issued about the magazine:

"Organ is the physical-waste deposit of two Midwest dipshits who suffer from obsessive visions of horror, visions of endless torrents of blood and gore, visions of cinematic barbarism transfixed within a nauseating vortex of undead soldiers of Satan waging war with guitars and venomous forked tongues, never-fuckin'-ending visions that transform their already unstable reality into an all-out blood orgy of neck-snapping, fist-pumping, homicidal lunacy! That, and super-cool comics and buxom babes smothered in a lot of blood... Organ is cry for help - a plea, if you will, to join their Cult Of Gore. They are possessed by death and obsessed with gore, and they want you to come fuckin' die with 'em.

"This blood tome is saturated in interviews with metal purveyors Impetigo, Asphyx, Undergang, Nocturnal, Grave Upheaval, Cianide, Morbus Chron, and Denial, a chat with Mike Minnet of Bad Taste, and Mike Howlett, the author of The Weird World Of Eerie Publications book: literally, a fuck-ton of horror/exploitation write-ups including a Coffin Joe and Tim Ritter spotlight, metalhead artist profiles, insane horror comics, nerd anecdotes of the lurking past, and then throw in a gaggle of numskulls that love Jap hardcore, Conan The Barbarian rip-offs, and throwin' loads to Amber Lynn for, like, over two decades!! And just when you think the sleaze maelstrom has ceased, you are dead-fuckin'-wrong! There's even more weird diseases to contract that you've never even heard of, WOW!"

A teaser trailer is available below, and you can pick up your own copy of Organ #1 at this location. More...

At The Gates Announces European Tour

Swedish death metal legends At The Gates have announced that they will be embarking on a headlining tour of Europe this December, their first in nearly twenty years. They will be joined on the trek by Triptykon and Morbus Chron. Speaking about the tour, vocalist Tomas Lindberg stated:

"We are very excited for this tour. It will be our first proper tour of Europe since 1996. As we have been playing only festivals in Europe since the reunion in 2008, this will be the first chance for us to meet the fans of Europe in a more intimate environment. Playing live for our own crowd, our own people in smaller clubs is something that is essential to us as a band and we are looking forward to finally being able to deliver a full At The Gates show in this setting, without having to work around the schedules and conditions of bigger festivals. It will also be the first time ever that we will be able to present some new compositions in a live setting - as the new album will be released by then. It's hard and uncompromising and I think the new songs will work great live next to the old songs.

"As for going out together with Triptykon, we couldn't be more thrilled. I have always looked upon the work of Thomas Gabriel Fischer as a great source of inspiration. From naming my first band, Grotesque after a line in a Celtic Frost song back in 1988, to the mighty comeback with his new reincarnation with Triptykon. Seeing them live every day for three weeks will be mind-blowing. More...

Morbus Chron Posts Autopsy Cover

Morbus Chron has posted a cover of Autopsy's "Mauled to Death" online, which can be heard in the player below. The band also commented:

"While recording 'Creepy Creeping Creeps', we decided to do a cover of 'Mauled to Death'. Seeing how it never got the attention it deserved, we felt it was the right thing to do. Annoyingly enough there wasn't room for it on the 7".

"Autopsy just re-recorded the track and reminded us that we had our own version just laying there, unheard. So to celebrate them, here is our take on one of their best songs." More...
