Grave Desecrator Signs With Season Of Mist

Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of the cult death/black metal horde Grave Desecrator.

Grave Desecrator (Butcherazor – Guitars/Voices, Black Sin and Damnation – Guitars, Élson “El” Necrogoat – Bass, Márcio Slaughterer – Drums) will release a punishing new album via Season of Mist in 2015. The label also comments:

"Founded in 1998 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Grave Desecrator have established a reputation as one of the most savage and brutal South American metal bands through the release of two full-length albums and several well-received splits (including much sought-after splits with Archgoat and Black Witchery).

"Adhering to the extreme ways of their predecessors in Brazil, Grave Desecrator are true torch bearers of the underground, firmly placing themselves among the ranks of entities such as Sarcofago, early Sepultura, and Mutilator."

Regarding the signing, Grave Desecrator bassist E. Necrogoat comments: "A pact has been sealed, and we are very proud of it! Season of Mist will be in charge to spread our waves of sonic desecration, striking down the earth in witching hour!" More...

Faith No More Posts New Song "Superhero"

Faith No More is streaming the brand new song "Superhero" off the upcoming new album "Sol Invictus" below. "Sol Invictus" was produced by Bill Gould and recorded in the band’s Oakland, Calif. studio.

Explains Faith No More keyboardist Roddy Bottum why the band decided to make its first new album since 1997: "We got really bored with what we were doing, and we also felt like there are a whole lot of people out there who look to us to be inspired and encouraged by what we do artistically. So to be doing old songs on a big stage with a lot of people watching over and over, it felt kind of cheap and easy and a little too safe of a place to be. That's not who we are."
