Korotory Calls It Quits

Korotory just posted this message online via Facebook about deciding to call it a day after existing for two decades:

"It is with a extremely heavy heart that we announce after 20 years we are disbanding Korotory... There is no long drawn out explanation or bad blood... actually it's quite the opposite, It's just the right time to do so.

"Thank you to every single person who has been in this band for their talents, Thank you to all the promoters, clubs, bands, radio stations/DJ's,fan pages, etc who have supported us and been like family to us over the last two decades but most of all thank you to the greatest fans in the world for pushing us for two decades. Much love and respect to you all!

"We all will continue with music one way or another and who knows what the future holds! Thank You ALL!"

Korotory's latest releases were the 2012 EP "Chapter III: The Conquering" and the 2010 full-length "God Less America." More...

Carcass Cause A ComMotion In Bristol

Every once in a while, a tour comes along with a lineup that's more or less impossible to ignore. This year, Europe is being treated to a veritable wet dream of extremity, as two of death metal's most revered bands, Carcass and Obituary, are teaming up with grindcore godfathers Napalm Death and Canadian progressive thrashers, Voivod, as well as Swiss act, Herod, to give headbangers the Deathcrusher tour. As if to get the grey island out of the way first, the trek began this past week in the United Kingdom and this reporter was lucky enough to witness the event in Bristol, at a venue called The Motion.

Opening the show was Herod, a progressive sludge metal band from Vevey in Switzerland, who released their debut album, "They Were None" last year. Although they didn't feel out of place as such on this bill, opening such an exciting lineup with sludge didn't seem like a particularly good idea and as a result, Herod came across as a boring start that created the sentiment opening bands dread; the old, "Let's just get this over with so we can watch what we came for," vibe. They received a relatively warm response from the crowd however, who it must be said of Bristol audiences, are usually supportive of unknown or new bands. Whatever the case, with a dull stage presence and uninteresting repertoire, Herod will need to wait until their next album before they seriously impress any passing punters. More...
