Pit Stories: Is That Bread Burning?

Italian symphonic metal band Sleeping Romance sent us a story not from the pit, but from the road, or rather hotel in Slovakia while on tour:

In 2015 we went to play in a nice Bratislava club. The evening went pretty well, so late at night we reached the hotel where we would stay: a 4 star hotel, gorgeous, never seen so much luxury. They put us in the last 3 rooms of the most remote corner of the hotel's sixth and last floor. After a quiet night, we wake up to have breakfast. We felt a great smell of abrasive bread, and we were on the sixth floor, so who knows what they were cooking in the ground floor kitchen?!? At one point, Lorenzo and Federico who had slept in the same room felt knocking at the door: "guys, out, fast, there is a fire!" Federico, believing in a joke of Francesco, says to Lorenzo: let him enter. Federico was pointing his ass to the door. Well, Lorenzo opened the door and here was a huge firefighter who, with a disgruntled face, invited us to leave as the hotel was on fire. In the most panic we took what we could and ran down hard, with the firefighter who kept yelling at us running and the black smoke that was poisoning us. But the fireman's horrible face, which we believe remains suspicious about what was happening in Lorenzo and Federico's room, is one of the most precious memories we keep.

Sleeping Romance's new album "Alba," was released on November 3rd via Napalm Records. The band will tour Europe in February with Visions of Atlantis and Serenity as part of the Symphonic Metal Nights Tour. Tour dates are as follows: More...

It is intolerance for the intolerant, a doctrine against white nationalism. We will no longer bear those who want to preserve a false sense of genetic entitlement, nor the monuments and glorifications of such. Fuck the Nazis, fuck the alt-right."

Horrendous Announces New Album

East coast death metal outfit Horrendous have announced their signing to Season of Mist for the release of their currently untitled fourth album. The new outing follows 2015’s Anareta. Says Horrendous via Facebook about the album:

“The time has finally arrived to announce our newest creation to the world. It was a painful birth, brimming with the paranoia and malaise of our times, and has since matured into a sprawling colossus that consumed us as we constructed it. It is our monument to uncertainty, to the mad perseverance of the soul and its tired labors, and the redemptive cycle of failure and resiliency–another stone rolled to the peak, demanding all of our abilities, and we can’t wait to watch it fall.”

Recording will commence at guitarist/vocalist Damian Herring’s Subterranean Watchtower Studios. No release date has yet been confirmed.
