Bassist Adrian Maestas comments, "After trying out drummers for a few months we think we've found the right guy. Welcome aboard, Addison!"

Singer / guitarist Mike Scalzi gave only a short list of the new drummer's vital statistics:

- Loyal Slough Feg fan since 2007
- Sharp wit / keen philosophical / linguistic intellect
- Corrective lenses necessary when drumming / viewing oversized metal chicks' asses
- Huge heavy metal fan, with tastes ranging from early Maiden and Priest to Budgie and Beethoven
- Corporate spirit with liberal incentives towards Slough Feg's prime directive

Guitarist Angelo Tringali couldn't be reached for comment, but his answering machine informed us that he was out in search of "a different lime and whiskey cola."

Unruh Releasing Three LP Box Set

King Of The Monsters has declared the impending release of a massive triple-LP box set sealing within it the entire recorded discography from Phoenix, Arizona hardcore outfit Unruh.

This set comes in conjunction with the band's recent twenty-year reunion and will drop March 10th, 2015. The following press release was also issued:

"From their formation in the Spring of 1995 until its demise only five years later, Unruh formed from the ashes of Uruk Hai, joined by members of Scourge and Wellington. With their searing alloy of crust, hardcore and metal influences, packing just as much grueling, low-end sludge torture as they did rabid, blazing powerviolence/hardcore attacks, Unruh's desert harsh output saw them comparable to Corrupted, Crossed Out, Rorshach, Assück, Gehenna, Milhouse and the like.

"Besides decimating the Southwest live continuously, the band toured the US several times and even stormed Europe on tour in 1999, before disbanding in May of 2000. Following the band's dissipation, the members have gone on to form and play with Landmine Marathon, Black Hell, GOG, Antique Scream, Ofdeath, Structure Of Lies, North Side Kings, District 9 and more.

"Within the half decade of their existence, Unruh churned out a respectable arsenal of recorded works, including several demos, two LPs through King Of The Monsters and Pessimiser, several split releases and EPs, notable compilation inclusions and more, all of which are now being collectively re-released in a 3-LP box set, Tomb.

"The massive package will include the Misery Strengthened Faith and Setting Fire To Sinking Ships LPs as well as an entire third platter of B-Sides, amassing the two demos, the band's splits with Enewetak and Creation Is Crucifixion, the Friendly Fire EP and their material from the Seven Deadly Sins and Cry Now, Cry Later compilations. Additionally, the digital version will include a live set from CBGBs, captured on Unruh's tour with Fall Silent in 1997." More...

Gra Releasing Split With Gnosis Of The Witch

Iron Bonehead Productions is proud to present an exclusive split 7" between two shadowy black metal hordes: Gra and Gnosis Of The Witch. The split drops April 27th and the label also comments:

"Gra occupy the A-side with 'Valitus ja kaipuu' - burly yet drifting, tangibly physical yet seemingly not of this realm, shifting itself between trance and decay.

"Gnosis Of The Witch then occupy the B-side with 'Fórn Dauðaorð' - old as time, hideous in its hypnosis, ancient splendor stretched to the darkest limit. Together, both bands offer short-yet-sweet portals to the beyond..."

Northlane Breaks Down On Tour

Northlane is currently on tour with Miss May I and Fit For A King, but the band will be missing tonight's Florida show. The group comments:

"We regret to tell you that we won't be able to make the show in Orlando tonight. Yesterday our vehicle broke down outside of Albany and we've spent the last 18 hours trying to get it repaired.

"We've found an outlet to get us back on the road, but unfortunately by the time we are up and running we won't be able to make the five hour trip in time to play the show. Big thanks to Miss May I & Fit For A King who helped us out by taking some gear and one of our crew to the venue in the hope that we would be able to be set up and ready if we showed up at the last minute. Unfortunately that wasn't possible.

"Obviously we are really upset as we've been dying to play Orlando for a long time now, and ride all your roller coasters. We are now going to vent this into writing some nice heavy riffs today and we will see you guys next time. Thanks for understanding, we love you."

Remaining dates on the trek are as follows:

Mar 03 Revolution Live Fort Lauderdale, FL
Mar 04 The Masquerade Atlanta, GA
Mar 05 Amo's Southend Charlotte, NC
Mar 06 The NorVa Norfolk, VA
Mar 07 Starland Ballroom Sayreville, NJ

“When our label abandoned us, for never specified reasons, it has been tough. But we rolled up our sleeves and we accomplished all of the obligations and shows lined up.

"We never aimed to make money with music, we simply want our art to be spread around and hopefully to be appreciated, if not loved. This way, without any pressure from labels, we can reach as many people as possible around the whole world!"

The track listing is as follows:

1. Black and Demons
2. Under my Scars

Gruesome Posts "Hideous" Track

"Savage Land" is the forthcoming debut full-length from death metal perpetrators Gruesome.
Featuring within its bestial ranks members of Exhumed, Possessed, Malevolent Creation and Derketa, Gruesome is a supergroup of sorts paying homage to the game-changing sounds of Death's early recordings.

Gruesome was borne out of guitarist/vocalist Matt Harvey (Exhumed) and drummer Gus Rios' (Malevolent Creation) mutual involvement with the Death To All tours. The result is the eight scathing tracks contained on "Savage Land."

Set for release next month, today team Gruesome offers up fourth track "Hideous" for communal absorption. The track is based on 1932 horror film, "Freaks," in which the characters were played by people who worked as carnival sideshow performers and had real deformities. The original version was considered too shocking to be released, and no longer exists.

Rios further elaborates, "'Hideous' was one of the last songs to be written for the album. By that point Matt had really hit a stride with the writing and this song turned out to be one of our favorites! It seamlessly blends influences from the first three Death albums with even a tiny tip of the hat to Human. Listen closely after the solo section...you'll swear it's 1988 for real! We sincerely hope that everyone enjoys this as much as we did creating it! Hail Chuck [Schuldiner]!" More...

Sister Sin Posts "Desert Queen" Video

With commanding might and old school conviction, Sister Sin delivers “Desert Queen,” the second video from "Black Lotus." Check it out below.

"We took a bit of inspiration from ancient times and aimed for a darker feeling in this video," explains guitarist Jimmy Hiltula. "Since the song has a dark feel to it, yet is very melodic, we wanted to capture that along with having the Desert Queen character in it. Also, we wanted to take some focus off the band and give more room for Liv portraying this gypsy kind of woman, reading cards and being enigmatic.”

Hiltula continues on the filming, “The desert shots were absolutely crucial for the whole video and 11 Frames (producer) did an awesome job with these beautiful pictures. We couldn't be more excited about this video! We have all met the Desert Queen in our lives (or eventually will), the mystery lies beyond."

Signs Of Darkness comments: "Terra Nullius is the second track we unveil of our upcoming album 'The Age Of Decay.' The song was inspired by the emptiness we feel inside all of us and the relationship between ourselves and our surroundings. Sometimes it's better to follow the voice in your head, instead of listening to what other people have to say. The haunting icy scream in the middle of the song represents that idea."

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."
