The Other Streaming Second New Song

German horror punk band The Other is streaming the new track "My Home Is My Casket" exclusively over at Noisecreep at this location. The song appears on the band's new LP "The Devils You Know," which is scheduled to drop on July 31, 2012 through SPV/Steamhammer Records.

Vocalist Rod Usher commented on the track: "'My Home Is My Casket' was one of the last songs written for The Devils You Know and it follows the tradition of the heavy opener which we have on every album. The song works as a little horror story about a vampire who lives in his casket, it's actually about alienation and about not finding a place in society and losing the will to live. The song will also open our live shows from now on and it will be exiting to see how people react, since it's probably the most "metal" song on the album." More...

Pit Stories: Right in the Kisser

We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week Rod Usher of German metallic horrorpunk band The Other shares a story of a fan that was a little too out of control and gets what he deserves:

Some years ago we played a festival in the Netherlands. We played the second stage as the last band of the night and a lot of people in attendance had already spent the whole day drinking and doing all kinds of substances, since Holland is a very liberal country. One guy in the audience was clearly under the influence of something else besides alcohol and grass, because he was very aggressive, hitting people while slamdancing and generally causing trouble. Of course I told him to calm down, but that only seemed to make things worse. At one point that guy jumped on stage and dragged me down into the audience. While I’m happy to have stagedivers come up and jump in to the crowd, I don’t want to be attacked by some weirdo. Especially since I had no idea what he was on and what his intentions were. So instead of waiting for what was going to happen, I hit the guy right in the face. He lost parts of his front teeth, his buddies didn’t really appreciate my hitting their friend, but the rest of the audience cheered, cause he was a nuisance. We continued the show while the guy and his friends were escorted from the festival-grounds by the security. I’m not proud I hit a guy and I surely didn’t mean to hurt him like that and I actually sent an email to the festival organization and apologized for the whole mess, but in the end I believe that it was the only thing that I could have done… If you go to a show, party, drink, and let loose. But if you become aggressive, it might come right back to you!

The Other is preparing to release their latest album, "New Blood," on August 31st. Rod Usher commented: "We are very proud, that our new album is being released in North America on SPV / E1 Entertainment. Our previous records were only available as imports and now finally all of the US- and Canadian Fiends have a chance to get 'New Blood' without any problems."
