Amoral Writing New Material

Amoral has checked in with the following update about working on new material:

"The last Amoral show of 2010 at On the Rocks, Helsinki was a blast, thanks to all of you who attended, especially you who traveled from other countries to be there! It was fun trying out some new songs on you people. Special thanks to Juhani Flinck from Dead Shape Figure, who filled in for Wally in a week's notice! Mad props!

"Other than that, the writing and fine-tuning of the new material has been getting along good. We have about 13 songs written as of now, and still more keep popping up. It looks like we'll be heading to the studio in April/May, with a possible late 2011 release. Yes, it's a bitch of a wait, we know, but we promise it's gonna be worth it! We'll try to post some more demo session/rehearsal footage as we go along, to give you guys an idea of where we are at.

"As for the new stuff: like I said, we already have more than an album's worth of material, so we're gonna have a lot to choose from by the time we hit the studio. The material is all over the place style-wise, from the chillest acoustic stuff to fast death metal, with lots of solid hard rockin' metal in between. So expect versatility! More...

Nervecell To Record New Album

Nervecell has issued the following update about gearing up to enter the recording studio:

"Hey everyone! We are really thrilled that the writing process for the new album has been successfully completed and the band is eager to enter the studio next month and start recording. We've been working really hard on this record through out this year and in between the tours we've had in Europe and Asia. All the pre-production for the songs are done and we're very happy with how everything has turned out for us so far.

"The new songs are sounding aggressive, fast and dark! The fans can expect a heavy dosage of old school death metal, modern thrash metal, intertwined with our touch of Eastern melodies and brutality. Needless to say there will be more exciting news and surprises featured on this new record to follow.

"The new (as-yet-untitled) album is set for a release early 2011 on Lifeforce Records (Europe) / Spellbind Records (Middle East). This will mark the follow up to the much anticipated 2009 debut 'Preaching Venom' which was released in Europe in October 2009 on Lifeforce Records. The album title and more details will be announced in the upcoming weeks, so make sure you stay tuned!"

Interview

Interview with Brian Patton of Eyehategod

Fathers of sludge Eyehategod will be heading out on the road soon to cover your town in a thick, smelly layer of toxic slime. That's what sludge is, after all. The world is waiting on pins and needles for the next album; in the making for over ten years now. This is not a Guns N' Roses deal though. The musicians in Eyehategod are very busy with their other bands like Down, Arson Anthem, and Soilent Green to name a few. I was able to catch up with guitarist Brian Patton before the tour is unleashed to talk about the upcoming album, how crazy things get on tour, and amazing shows possibly heading your way. A transcription follows. More...

August Burns Red Posts "Little Drummer Boy" Cover

American metalcore act August Burns Red has kept true to its yearly tradition with re-working classic Christmas songs. Having previously covered "Carol of the Bells" and "O Come, O Come Emmanuel," August Burns Red have now posted its latest Christmas carol rendition of "Little Drummer Boy." The new cover song can be streamed at this location. August Burns Red guitarist JB Brubaker commented on the cover by saying:

"With 'Little Drummer Boy' I wanted to do something really different from any previous AUGUST BURNS RED songs. The end result is pretty much our attempt at down-tuned post metal, which is something I've been a fan of for a long time now. The song was recorded in drop A, which is much lower than we usually play. Recording the track was a lot of fun as I was able to incorporate a bunch of new sounds and techniques ABR has never used before like slide guitar, ukulele, and acoustic guitar. The icing on the cake was having Magnus Lindberg mix the track. Lindberg has done all the CULT OF LUNA albums, and I'm a huge fan of theirs so I was so excited to have him mix the track."
