Lecherous Nocturne to release "Occultaclysmic"

South Carolina tech death brutes Lecherous Nocturne's fourth full length release Occultaclysmic will be out on April 6, through Willowtip Records.

Guitarist Krieshloff had this to say: "Occultaclysmic is darker, more chaotic, and much more brutal, drawing more influence from blackened and atmospheric masterpieces than previous releases.

Suffocation: "We're Planning A Farewell For Frank"

There are some bands which will forever be loved by fans of the respective sub-genre. Most black metal fans love Emperor, most thrash fans love Exodus and most death metal fans love New York's own, Suffocation. The quintet are currently on the road in Europe promoting their eighth studio album, "... Of The Dark Light" and I was lucky enough to be in Bristol for the first show of the trek with Venom Inc., Nervosa and Aeternam, in addition to receiving the privilege of interviewing Suffocation guitarist and co founder, Terrance Hobbs (as well as members of Venom Inc. and Nervosa.)

Speaking about the position of vocalist Frank Mullen, who hasn't toured with the band for a while, Hobbs said;

"Frank wants to do a farewell tour but for him it's so hard, as well as for us, because there's so much of the world that he can't just take three months off work and come to Asia, South America etc. So what we're doing is working out the best areas that he'll be able to do in a short amount of time.

"Frank is screaming his lungs out and getting these bad headaches, which in turn makes it even harder for him to do the kind of touring a band like us needs to do. So yeah, we're working on a farewell tour for Frank and it'll be sad if he decides he needs to go. I'm almost never going to let him go! Hopefully we can get him back out here (the United Kingdom.)"
