Exhumed Announces New Live Invasion

The West Coast gore hounds in Exhumed will take to the streets this Fall on another rash of live incursions with extreme metal technicians Carcass and manic death thrashers Noisem.

Slated to kick off on October 24th in San Diego, the Inked In Steel Tour 2014 will trample nearly two dozen cities with additional sonic devourment from death metal legends Obituary and Macabre on select dates.

From there the band will march overseas for more onstage devastation with Aborted, Origin, and Miasmal. See confirmed shows below.

Comments Exhumed's Matt Harvey: "We've been enjoying a rare few months of quiet in the Exumed camp, but we're finally emerging from the death metal equivalent of cryo-sleep to make some noise again. We're totally psyched to be back out amongst all you mutants and maniacs again for some beers, laughs and our usual brand of heavy metal mayhem. It'll be great to worm our way back into your little black hearts. We couldn't ask for a better tour package than with Carcass and Obituary, and our solo dates will allow us to unleash a full spectrum of stuff onstage - more songs, more production, more Marshall cabinets. It's gonna be a blast (beat). See you fuckers there! Bring beer!" More...

Bloodstock Festival Reveals Full 2014 Lineup

The final bands have now been announced for this year's edition of the Bloodstock Festival, which takes place from August 7th - 10th (get ticket info and other details over here). The organizers of the festival comment:

"The ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ finals have rocked to a conclusion and some more lucky young bands are joining the New Blood stage at Catton Park next month, plus there's a few last additions for the Sophie and Jagermeister stages.

"Balls Deep bring their trad groove metal to the Sophie Lancaster stage. The Brit outfit have been busy honing their ‘Pro-Pain cut with Black Sabbath’ sound, coming on like the bastard sons of Pantera and classic heavy metal.

"Over on the Jagermeister stage, female-fronted power metallers Aceldama will be impressing allcomers with their high octane performance and audience interaction, while New Blood stage stoner rocker’s Resin will be offering an additional acoustic spin on their new material.

"Meanwhile, the New Blood stage welcomes the last clutch of winners from the last batch of M2TM roadshow finals. Goat Leaf bring their doom groove from the Sheffield heats, Oakhaart’s tech death noise hails from Gloucestershire, impressing judges at the Bristol event, Sinpathetic grace us with their death metal from the Preston night, Eradikator’s thrash metal won out in Birmingham, and lastly but not least, Cacodaemonic's unholy, neo-classical infused death metal represents Nottingham."

The full 2014 festival lineup will be as follows: More...

Bloodstock Announces Art Exhibition

The work of JRR Tolkien has long been a favorite muse of rock and metal artists. This year's Bloodstock bands Megadeth, Amon Amarth, and Dimmu Borgir all have used Tolkien references in their work, along with many others (Nightwish, Gorgoroth and even the likes of Led Zeppelin to name but a few).

Now Bloodstock’s co-founder, fantasy artist Paul Raymond Gregory, is thrilled to bring the two themes together and launch a major art exhibition at Bloodstock this year.

Christened the Rock and Metal (RAM) Gallery, the exhibition is to be a permanent addition to the festival and will provide a showcase for a changing selection of rock-related art and memorabilia. Paul Raymond Gregory’s extensive body of work includes many famous album sleeves and monolithic pieces inspired by the writings of JRR Tolkien. Paul’s first ever album cover commission was in 1984 for Saxon’s "Crusader," so launching the RAM Gallery on the 30th anniversary of Paul’s artistic debut in the metal world is fitting indeed.

This year’s first showing will include all the original Bloodstock festival artwork, going right back to the first indoor event in 2001, plus a wide range of Paul’s album art including the sleeve of Saxon’s latest release "Sacrifice." Representing Paul’s Tolkien work, there will also be a large triptych inspired by The Silmarillion opus (from whence Marillion derived its name). The painting will be mounted in a bespoke hand-carved frame created by framer John Davis. Although John has framed much of Paul’s other work, the triptych features the first frame actually designed by Paul himself. In addition, Paul will be signing copies of his book "Beyond Time And Place," which showcases artwork from the breadth of his career.

The exhibition will also include a small selection of bespoke handmade guitars created by young artist/musician Cynosure who is working to re-define the guitar, not just as a functional instrument, but as a working, playable piece of art.

The current Bloodstock Festival 2014 lineup is shaping up as follows: More...

Bloodstock Adds More Bands To 2014 Lineup

The organizers of the Bloodstock Festival have checked in with the following update about confirming more bands for the 2014 edition:

"Things are hotting up at Bloodstock HQ and even more bands are unveiled for 2014!! Joining the main stage bill are the newly renamed, Entombed A.D. After having to change their name from just ‘Entombed’, LG Petrov and his fellow band members are once again ready to let the music do the talking after a year of internal struggles. They release the highly anticipated new album ‘Back to the Front’ on 4th August via Century Media and are eager to get back on the road.

"Getting the heads banging on the Sophie stage on Thursday are British trad metalheads Monument, and bringing their own brand of theatrical madness and extreme metal are former ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ winners, Gethika. Bringing an international flavour on Sunday are death/thrash metallers Krow, who hail all the way from Brazil. Fancy something a little different? Then check out 16-yr old blues star in the making Aaron Keylock, also performing on Sunday’s Sophie stage.

"Not content with that, Bloodstock can also reveal six killer bands for the Jagermeister stage! Grab a couple Jagerbombs and come headbang to Undersmile and King Creature on Friday, plus Massive Wagons and a special acoustic set from Orphaned Land on Saturday. If you’re still standing come Sunday, be sure to catch Rabid Bitch of the North and The Heretic Order."

The festival takes place from August 7th - 10th and full details are available at this location. The currently announced lineup is as follows: More...

Origin Announces New Tour Dates

Iconic death metal outfit Origin will return to Europe for a 31 date tour throughout 15 countries in September and November. Side to side with Aborted, Exhumed and Miasmal, the U.S. metal giants will invade The Old Continent for the first time since 2012's crusade with Suffocation. The band commented:

"Some bands are just made to tour together! This November, Origin has the pleasure of going out with two bands that we have toured with in the past, Aborted and Exhumed. It's always a treat for any band to link up with old friends that they have shared the road with…as long as it was a good time! We have had great times on the road with both bands. Aborted, 2 years ago, and Exhumed wayyyyyy back 14 years ago! All on one bus, one big mess of psychopaths howling at the moon! If the bands are getting along and having a good time, then the shows for the friends and fans are going to be that much more ripping. This tour is going to positively melt faces. I've heard people say 'Hell, I'm over Europe' .....but not me, because this is HELL OVER EUROPE! With Exhumed and Aborted!"

The Hell Over Europe tour will kick off on the 20th of September in Nurnberg, Germany. Detailed tour dates can be found below.

Origin's upcoming 6th album, "Omnipresent," is set to be released on July 4th in Europe via Agonia Records (July 8th in North America via Nuclear Blast). More...

The Belgian death metal psychopaths in Aborted will release their eighth full-length, "The Necrotic Manifesto," tomorrow. After smashing through the states on tour with Kataklysm the band is now on tour in Mexico and will head to Australia in June!

In celebration of the album's impending release, you can now hear the full album below, courtesy of No Clean Singing.

Vocalist Sven de Caluwé had this to say about the album: "It is with great pleasure and pride that we announce that the release of the new Aborted album is finally upon us! The synergy and coherence in the band hasn't been this strong since Goremageddon and we truly believe that we are about to release some of our best material to date.

"Those of you whom witnessed the live onslaught throughout our North American tour with Kataklysm and our headlining dates with Pyrexia have already experienced some of the brutality held within The Necrotic Manifesto, but have no fear, the rest of you are in store for the same onslaught as we come to your town near you throughout the rest of 2014! Then, on top of everything else, we are excited to be releasing something truly unique and dare we say, never done before by a band!!

"We have created our own adventure card game and we can't wait for people to sit back, throw on the album and play the game with their closest Death Metal compatriots! So, needless to say, this is an exciting time for us and we cannot wait to have you all enjoy our tales of depravity as told in The Necrotic Manifesto, so pick up your slab today and remember, keep it death metal!!!"

Aborted Announces 7" Tour Release

Aborted will soon be releasing new album "The Necrotic Manifesto" (get full details at this location), and the band will also be dropping a special 7" release while on tour. Aborted's Sven de Caluwé comments:

"On support of our upcoming US tour, we are glad to announce to release a very exclusive and limited 7" 'Scriptures of the Dead' (only 500 copies), check it out! Side A of 'Scriptures Of The Dead' includes the title track of the new album while side B offers a ferocious cover version of Sepultura's classic tune 'Arise.' This track is not going to be offered on any other physical format. Artwork for 'Scriptures of the dead' has been done by our great friend Robert Róbert A Borbás from Grindesign.

"Since we have our new album coming out right after our North American tour with Kataklysm, we thought we would offer the fans an exclusive opportunity to get some new music before the release of the album, therefore Century Media and yours truly came up with a devious plot to release a very limited 7" that will be on sale on tour containing one new track 'Necrotic Manifesto' and an exclusive cover track from Sepultura's 'Arise.'

"Now if that's not the extra incentive you all need to come get your faces melt off on the east coast extirpation dates or the kill the elite tour, I don't know what is! (Besides maybe cheesecake). If you don't live anywhere near where we will be touring, worry not, there will be a very limited amount of this 7" available on our online store and CM distro. Check out the tour dates below and come say what's up to us at the merch stand or the bar! Grind!" More...

Aborted Reveals New Album Details

The death metal psychopaths in Aborted have just finished their eighth full-length, "The Necrotic Manifesto," with Danish producer Jacob Hansen. The album will be released on April 28th in Europe and on April 29th in North America via Century Media Records. Front-man Sven de Caluwé comments:

"I can't believe we did it to be honest. We had a little over 3 months from start to master on this record-- everyone really gave 300% on this record, and it was an absolute pleasure to work with Jacob once again, who really pulled the best out of all our asses. I can say in all honesty that 'The Necrotic Manifesto' is without a doubt the strongest record Aborted has done thus far and could not be more proud of everyone involved in the project.

"It is the most brutal, extreme and technical record of the band without losing sight of groove and catchiness, which are all vital elements of this band. We cannot wait to get out there and start playing some new material in front of people and get some feedback on what we did in these intense months. Besides this I am very thrilled to have some of my favorite vocalists on this record as guests. Both Phlegethon (Wormed) and Vincent Bennett (The Acacia Strain) brought their own brand of burp to the table and really complemented the songs they are on! The artwork has been done by Par Olofsson (Pathology, Immortal)."

The album's track listing is as follows:

1. Six Feet Of Foreplay
2. The Extirpation Agenda
3. Necrotic Manifesto
4. An Enumeration Of Cadavers
5. Your Entitlement Means Nothing
6. The Davidian Deceit
