Chicago metal band LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR will release their new album, "Evil Power," on April 13, 2010 on The Grind-House Records, an independent record label started by Steve Rathbone, Chris Wozniak (both from LOTM) and Josh Diebel (former head of Alleysweeper Records). The record will be distributed by Southern Lord Records, who have released the band's previous three albums on CD and vinyl, two EPs and DVD. Check out the Scott Jackson cover art, and hear the track "We Are Hades" at the band's MySpace page.

The tracklisting for "Evil Power" is as follows:

01. Attack the Gods
02. Let’s Kill These Motherfuckers
03. Riders of Skullhammer, We Ride the Night
04. Evil Power
05. Goatstorm
06. Hunt and Devour
07. Metal Titans
08. Blood From the Witch’s Vein
09. We Are Hades
10. Death March of the Conquerors
11. The Violent Iron Age of Man

The album was recorded in Chicago at Semaphore Studios by Sanford Parker, and mastered by Scott Hull. Rathbone states, “If War Metal Battle Master was the war, Evil Power is the party after a bloody victory.” The album features new bassist, Nate Olp (vocalist/bassist of Demiricous) and guest backing vocals by General Diabolical Slaughter (Usurper).

A new video for the title track, "Evil Power," will be released with the album. Rathbone comments, “There will be blood! This video is unrelentingly brutal.” Directed by Ryan Oliver, the special effects master behind the "War Metal Battle Master" video and head of Chicago based Deathblow Productions. His credits include The Toolbox Murders and Among the Dead. The video's horror theme graphically details the torment of some unlucky virgins, sacrificed to the mighty Minotaur. An uncut version will be available on the web (also in HD), and a TV edit will be shown on MTV2/Headbangers Ball, Fuse and On Demand.

Coinciding with the release, the band is headlining a U.S. tour through the Midwest and East Coast in April. The tour dates are as follows::
