HOD Readies New Album And Streaming New Song

Vocalist Beer Reebs of Texas death metal maniacs HOD has issued the following update on the band's highly anticipated second full-length entitled "Book Of Worms," the imminent release of an unholy trio of tunes and forthcoming live action:

"Due to numerous lineup changes (4 total) in the past 1 1/2 - 2yrs and lack of finances, our sophmore album 'Book of the Worm' was inevitably pushed back and pushed back. During this time I spoke with Big Bald Brian from Ossuary Industries, who has been a long time friend and supporter to HOD. I told him we couldn't commit to a full length album due to our obligations/loyalty to Ibex Moon Records but we could commit to a split of some sorts. He mentioned the upcoming 'Limbsplitter 2' compilation he was putting together. Needing to release SOMETHING to appease the masses we agreed to jump on that. He even let us pick another group of our choosing to join in on the chaos. We chose our comrades in the black/death group Locusta to accompany us alongside Demoniacal Genuflection, Ingurgitate, & Iniquitous respectively. I forget who's doing the mastering but the artwork was done by the very twistedly sick Jon Zig. We recorded our three tracks with Dennis Munoz of Solstice fame. Our three slabs of hate are titled:

1. Awakening Blasphemous Abominations
2. And the Smoke Will Rise
3. To Call Forth the Deep Ones.

These tracks were recorded as a 4 piece and are the last recorded tracks w/founding member Dennis Sanders on drums. The disc will hopefully be available at the Gathering of the Bestial Legion V fest being held in L.A. Sat Jan 14th where we (HOD) share the stage w/Death Metal titans Autopsy, Incantation, Acheron, Divine Eve and more. When we get back home we'll play a 'local' show the 21st with some fellow TX Black and Death Metal bands while awaiting our March 26th show opening for the mighty Onslaught and M-pire of Evil. Recording of our 2nd album will be getting finished during this time as well. Till then, get your limbs split by Ossuary Industries w/the Limbsplitter 2 disc. Fuckin' Metal!"

The band has posted a stream of the track "To Call Forth The Deep Ones" on HOD's Reverbnation page, where you can stream other tracks from the "Serpent" release as well. "Book of Worms" should be out later this year on Ibex Moon Records.
