Every week we check in with musicians from across the metalverse to get their favorite Pit Stories from live shows. Today vocalist Pekka Heino from Finland's Brother Firetribe shares this tale of how the legendary Finnish love for alcohol got out of hand on a cruise show:
I was doing a show on a big cruise boat sailing the Helsinki-Stockholm line. Things get easily out of hand there as the audience tends to be pretty drunk - to put it mildly. This one time people were extra special messed up, really partying to the music we played.
Some guy got a little too excited and made his way onto the fence dividing the stage and the audience. He started rocking his body back and forth while holding on to the fence with only one hand. The state he was in made sure that it wouldn't end up well. And it didn't. He slammed face down on stage so that his body followed, legs and ass twisting over his neck. Of course he landed on glasses and bottles people had placed on stage while partying, and of course on our bass players pedal board. The bassist didn't really appreciate this, grabbed a hold of the guy and threw him off the stage. Another face down landing in just a few seconds.
While I'm watching this episode, a bald body builder type of guy grabs a hold of my clothes, trying to pull me off stage so I'm left with no choice but to cross check him in the forehead with the mic stand. He was so out of it he didn't even blink, just showed me the thumbs up and kept on rocking.
At the end of the gig, during the last encore, our guitarist jumped onto the audience to play a solo, tried to jump back to the stage over the fence, failing epically and landing on his back like a beetle turned upside down. I laughed so hard I couldn't finish the song.
Brother Firetribe features Nightwish guitarist Emppu Vuorinen and will release "Diamond in the Firepit" via Spinefarm Records on May 2nd. Pre-orders are available now on physical format or digital via iTunes. More...

On the tail of its initial digital materialization at the end of last Summer, the deluxe vinyl edition of Mark Deutrom's third solo album, "Brief Sensuality And Western Violence," is now on the verge of release.
The captivating third solo venture from the ex-Melvins/Clown Alley guitarist was released in September 2013. Deutrom's cohorts at Austrian label Rock Is Hell have put the deluxe vinyl edition of "Brief Sensuality And Western Violence" into production for an expected mid-May delivery.
Due to the length of the album, the material will span both one 12" and one 7" record configured together. States the artist of this setup: "The test pressings sound fantastic, and this one will put your stereo through a real workout."
There will be an offset version pressed on black and limited to 250 copies, and a hand-screened version on purple, limited to 100 copies. Both versions are being pressed in Europe and bear artwork by Mark D's wife, Jennifer Deutrom. Pre-orders are available over here. More...

Southern Lord has sanctioned the label's latest signing in the form of Danish raw punk/hardcore trio, Halshug. The label comments:
"Formed in Copenhagen only two years ago, the riotous young act, Halshug, unloads some of the most traditionally-styled but urgently unloaded traditional crust punk/d-beat hardcore to be found.
"The enraged sentiment of archetypal leaders of the genre, Doom, Anti Cimex, and no doubt, Discharge, and direct influence drawn from Infernöh, Hoax and Death Token, is unapologetic in its presence in the band's delivery, which, fueled by society's modern-day ills, finds Halshug already in line with Nuclear Death Terror, Wolfbrigade, Skitsystem and the best of the movement's current top acts.
"Through only an initial demo followed by their 2013-released Dödskontrol 7", Halshug has amassed a punishing name early in the powerful trio's lifespan through regional and even more heavily-concentrated European touring, and continues to expand on their live executions in 2014 with more widespread gigs than ever already ongoing and in the works.
"Their newest venture, a two-week rip through Germany, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Belgium and Holland, begins tomorrow, April 16th in Berlin. Halshug will also tour abroad through Europe and even invade North America later in 2014, following the release of their debut LP, soon to be recorded for Southern Lord." More...

Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt appears on this week’s episode of the MetalSucks podcast (available below) to talk about the band’s new album, "Pale Communion," which is due out June 17th, 2014.
In the 24-minute interview Mikael discusses how his kids take to metal and the affect technology has on the appreciation of music today, as well as his opinion on the lack of evolution in metal and the current “occult” metal trend.
Akerfeldt also talks at length about how he no longer feels inspired by death metal and why Opeth's music has moved away from that sound, stating:
“I haven’t had inspiration from the death metal scene since like 1992, if you know what I mean, so it kind of makes it difficult for me to write those types of songs, I guess, now. I guess I saturated that style of writing on the Watershed record and I just couldn’t do it anymore, for now, but you never know! Maybe I’ll get back to it, but right now I’m just interested in singing and developing my clean voice... It feels like I’m developing so much with my clean singing while with the death metal singing I kind of took it to a level where I couldn’t get better and in fact I got a bit worse, so it wasn’t fun to do that stuff anymore. But since then I’ve gotten back into it. My death metal voice sounds good again. But I’m still waiting… if that inspiration comes back, we’ll do a death metal record again.” More...

You can stream the brand new track "Balduinius 1491" below. The following press release was also issued about the band:
"The Leeds/Jyväskylä based duo have been carving out an unholy body of work since their formation in 2007; drawing on the brooding, angular influence of bands like Hella and Russian Circles and setting their sound against an imposing progressive metal backdrop. A body of music populated with astonishing, bold compositions driven by the ambition and percussive/rhythmic attack of guitarist Tom Brooke and drummer Steve Myles.
"Despite the 1500 kilometre divide the separates them as individuals, together they have performed over four hundred gigs in more than thirty countries, sharing stages with the likes of Russian Circles, Mono, And So I Watch You From Afar, Torche, Caspian and Red Sparowes. It’s through these live performances that they have honed their sound into this latest offering, and without doubt it’s the closest listeners will get to experiencing Khuda live in lieu of witnessing one of their commanding shows.
"The dynamic opening track ‘Balduinius 1491’ showcases their meticulous approach to both post-rock performance and production mixing swells of astral guitar work, technical drumming and ominous atmospheres, all of which hint at the progressive shape of the things to come."

Thus far operating as a trio, "Omnipresent" will introduce Jason Keyser (Skinless) as the band’s new vocalist. Commented by John Longstreth (drums): "Origin records albums in a somewhat masochistic, chaotic, and senseless fashion. It’s our best trick, and we need the best guy for our best trick, so that’s why we have Jason. He’s had two years of hard road work with the band and we know he’s the guy. For those that weren’t aware, Origin recorded 'Entity' as a trio without a proper vocalist, so we are very excited to have Jason in to do what a proper vocalist is supposed to do." More...

Kreator announced a new headline European tour with Arch Enemy, Sodom and Vader in support. The tour will begin on December 4th in Tilburg, Netherlands. The press release reads:
"Following the release of last year’s highly acclaimed and critically hailed live DVD/Blu-ray "Dying Alive," German thrash metal giants Kreator now announces a tour for November/December 2014, leading the true "hordes of chaos" throughout Europe as headliners, and with them a real high class selection of bands.
"Joining Kreator for the upcoming live shenanigans are Polish label mates Vader, Swedish death metal masters Arch Enemy and German thrash veterans Sodom.
"Frontman and icon Mille Petrozza comments: 'A lot of our European fans voiced their discontent over the fact that the band hardly does European club tours – apart from our festival shows. In 2013 we were mainly busy playing for our fans overseas. We want to change this now. In time for the reissues of 'Endless Pain,' 'Pleasure To Kill' and 'Extreme Aggression' in all kinds of formats – finally on vinyl again too - we'll end the 'Phantom Antichrist' tour cycle in Europe with a massive string of shows. This will be your last chance to see Kreator live in clubs for quite a while, because we'll be busy working on a new album in 2015 and only play carefully selected shows. Right now we're working on a new multimedia stage show and we'll also have a bunch of surprises in the setlist. Our friends of Arch Enemy are part of the trek to present their new album 'War Eternal,' and so will Vader and our old companions Sodom. This tour will be KILLER!!!“
