SXSW Music 2011 Day 3: Part 1

Friday, March 18th marked day three of SXSW Music. I attended the afternoon session entitled “Writing About Music in the Twenty Tens,” as it sounded like a great fit for what we do here. It was actually more geared toward the individual writer, but was applicable nonetheless. The panel of speakers had some prepared questions and discussed the need to learn multimedia and how writing professionally is a skill set in itself. Some of the examples about the latter were particularly interesting - writers get asked to do a wide range of things and the thinking is that rising to the challenge makes you a better writer. They also talked about saving your articles so that over time you’ll have enough material for a book or some sort, and discussed self publishing vs a book deal and how to find a good agent who works with your topic/kind of book (and recommended agentquery.com for searches).

There were two big day shows to choose from on this day: The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival at SXSW and MetalSucks’ “South by South Death.” I had planned to stop by the NEMHF before heading to the MetalSucks event. The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival was being held across the street from Emo’s in a tent. Being highly visible on the main strip, and featuring more well known bands, it was already packed and there was a line to get in - no special treatment for having a badge even. That made it a no-brainer to walk a block down the street to Headhunters to check out the MetalSucks event.

When I arrived, it had yet to start, but Meek Is Murder was setting up just minutes later. The main floor of Headhunters is not very big, especially if you don’t count the stage, sound board, and bar. I’d guess there’s about 15’ x 25’ of usable floor space. Meek Is Murder began playing to the dozen or so people there at the time. Their sound lies somewhere under the progressive hardcore umbrella. I liked the more progressive parts, as well as the occasional cool riff or groove, but was not a big fan of the screamy hardcore parts. But it was still an enjoyable half hour set anyway. More...

Septicflesh Posts Fifth Studio Update

Greek act Septicflesh will be releasing "The Great Mass" on April 18th, 2011. The band has now checked in with a fifth studio report, which was conducted by Hard Rock Mag editor Sven Letourneur. The studio report can be read below, or you can check out Metalunderground.com's review of the new album here.

Sven: You left Peter Tägtgren work alone for a few days, how long did he work on the mix? Did he send you some tests regularly or just one final pre-mix to have your opinion before applying your changes? When you heard the first results of the mixing done by Peter, what was your opinion about it? Were there a lot of things to be changed? Is the final result close to what you had in your minds?

Sotiris (guitars / vocals): After a period of 5 days, Peter presented us his first pre-mix of the songs. It was his suggestion for the "skeleton" of the album, focusing on drums-bass-guitars. In this pre-mix, there were no vocals, as he wanted to focus on them after the decisions about the basic sound field were taken. On this mix the orchestral parts had a more general balance. That didn't work for all the songs as on the new album we experimented with different structures, using different combinations of instruments and dynamics from song to song. On the other hand, when we listened to it, we were very pleased, as the guitars were sharp and extremely heavy and the grooves of the bass and drums were sounding so damn powerful. Our suggestions were mostly focused on the orchestral parts, as it was obvious that the metal instruments were exactly as we wanted them to be.

Sven: After some remarks, Peter did a second mix with all your ideas taken into account. How did you feel when hearing this second test? Did you feel you were close to the perfect result? Is there a third mix already done?

Fotis (drums): Yes, there is a third mix already... The good thing about Peter is that even if he is who he is and has so many years of experience, he is always open to any suggestions and ideas. We had a great time working together and I believe that both sides are happy with the result of this album.

Oathbreaker Signs To Deathwish

Deathwish Inc. has issued the following statement about releasing "Mælstrøm" by Oathbreaker:

"Oathbreaker are a brutal Punk/Metal band from Ghent, Belgium. To outsiders, Belgium is a country rich in cultural diversity and history. However to its residents it is also a country of crime, corruption, and political incompetence. For the Ghent based Oathbreaker, the festering blood that surfaces from these social cracks and fissures burns as fuel for their creative engine.

"After their formation in early 2008, Oathbreaker released a debut 7" EP on the British label Thirty Days Of Night Records. The release was well received by many worldwide and propelled the band to tour Europe. There they shared stages with Entombed, Amen Ra (whom they share a member with), Blacklisted, Trap Them, and more. There they honed their craft, developing into one of the most interesting metallic bands out there today.

"Deathwish are proud to announce the release of 'Mælstrøm,' the new album from Oathbreaker. Recorded in Belgium by Michael Neyt and Lander Cluyse, mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge), and mastered by Alan Douches (Converge, The Dillinger Escape Plan), 'Mælstrøm' is a swirling mix of Metal, Punk, and Hardcore destruction.

"Similarities in Oathbreaker's ferocity to bands like Cursed, Rise And Fall, and From Ashes Rise are apparent, but merely a flash point for them. Opener 'Origin' strikes hard of the gate, crashing down with swirling guitars, thunderous drumming, and vicious vocal stylings. From there, Oathbreaker push the limits of brutal with 'Hierophant,' a crushing mid paced masterpiece infected with a 'Wolverine Blues' spirit. While songs 'Thoth' and 'Glimpse Of The Unseen' carry a Doom Metal like candor that would even make Tom G. Warrior proud. Song after song, the chaos ensues within the Oathbreaker vortex as they explore all shades of heavy. Then, as suddenly as their rage appeared on the horizon, it recedes to reveal the album's mesmerizing title track 'Mælstrøm.' A dark acoustic passage that shows Oathbreaker's ability to not only unleash a fury, but control the musical super storm within.

"Without question, Oathbreaker's 'Mælstrøm' is one of the best debut albums we've ever heard, and we trust you'll feel the same way. A release date and specifics will be released soon via Deathwish." More...

Conducting From The Grave Posts Music Video

Sacramento's Conducting From The Grave recently finished a run of shows on the “Spread The Venom Tour” alongside Kataklysm, All Shall Perish, Decrepit Birth, and Abysmal Dawn. The band has now posted a music video online for the song "Her Poisoned Tongues," which can be viewed below.

John Abernathy (guitars) states: “Our tour with Kataklysm, All Shall Perish, Decrepit Birth and Abysmal Dawn just ended in Montreal and this was by far the best tour we have ever done. The shows were all amazing, especially the five Canadian dates.

“The video for 'Her Poisoned Tongues' was shot at a local Sacramento area club that we play fairly often called The Boardwalk. We went with director Will DaRosa because we saw some of his work with our friends in Havenside and Hoods. We chose the song because we wanted to do a live music video to showcase our live performance and that song has the gang vocal part at the end, thus making it the best candidate for a wild live show. We also wanted our local fans to have a chance to be seen in the video, and a lot of them definitely are since there were non-stop stage dives during the shoot. It was one of the most intense shows we've ever played for sure, and we want to thank all the fans that came out and supported us. We hope you enjoy it.”

Pain Of Salvation Posts "Where It Hurts" Video

Currently working on the final details for the "Road Salt Two" release and freshly returned from a successful trip to India, Pain of Salvation is now debuting a video clip for the song "Where It Hurts" (off "Road Salt One"). You can check out the edited version of the video below (the original has already been removed by YouTube).

Pain of Salvation's Daniel Gildenlöw elaborates about the clip as follows:

"Finally the video for Where it Hurts is officially released! I have longed for this moment for months. With Road Salt I decided from the start to be insanely brave - always going where the music and lyrics would take us and never hesitate or consider the consequences. This approach was very dominant already when we first started taking photos for the album. I found myself in situations I had never expected to find myself in - we dressed in skirts, waded knee-deep in ice cold lakes, lying in freezing and maggot filled swamp water, making out with relatives in front of the camera - the whole three day shoot ending with a huge bonfire where we played acoustic music and burned furniture long into the cold Swedish night.

Darkness By Oath Issues Recording Update

Spain's Darkness by Oath previously announced the band's upcoming album will be titled "Near Death Experience." The band has now checked in with the following update on the recording process:

"Maybe some of you were wondering about what's going on with the DBO guys, so now it's time to inform you about our current activities. The band entered Auryn Studios some weeks ago to record the third full length album, that will be released hopefully by the end of 2011.

"The 'Near Death Experience' sessions have already started, and by this time we have some of the work done. All the drums are finished by now, and the guitars are being recorded as you read this. Alain, Tris and Asier have been working hard on the drum stuff in order to improve the sound and dynamics of the drum section. We wanted to improve the previous albums' drum sound somehow and we think that we've got it.

"Regarding guitars, 6 songs are done already and another 4 to go. Tris and Alain have written some cool riffs, melodies and arrangements for this album we can tell you, and we're quite sure you'll like them a lot. As far as Tris said today, the recording is going smoothly and will end in about a week or so.

"Next to record will be Gorka on bass, and last but not least, Aritz on vocals. Almost all the lyrics are finished too (Aritz took care of them mostly, with some help from Alain and Asier), and the artwork is also in progress, as we've stated previously. Well, all this sums up what we've been up to lately. We'll keep you updated about how the rest of recording is going."

Morbid Angel Reveals New Album Artwork

American death metal legends Morbid Angel has revealed the front cover artwork for their forthcoming new studio album, "Illud Divinum Insanus." You can check it out below. The album will be the band's first record since 2003 and will be released through Season of Mist Records on June 7th in North America, with an international release date of June 6th.

Speaking on the artwork, designer Gustavo Sazes stated: "To create this cover we worked from several references, ideas, elements, and I would say a 'world' of options and paths. After a long brainstorming period and some [good and bad] ideas left behind we came up with the concept of this organic surreal insane being; a fallen God or a weird mirror image of our own madness. It is a different Morbid Angel cover for sure, but I think that's how Morbid Angel is... Deviant and different on each new release. They never repeat themselves. They are always pushing the boundaries and setting new standards. I'm really proud of the final results and hope the fans appreciate my work, while listening to the new album!" More...

Asking Alexandria Experiences Problems In Seattle

Several hours ago Asking Alexandria posted the following statement on the band's Facebook page:

"We are so sorry Seattle. We will make this right. Once Danny wakes up from his nightmare that was tonight, he will face the music. Thank you to everyone who stayed with us through all of it and joined us on stage to keep the spirit alive. Forgive us Seattle. We will make this right."

The band then followed that message with this statement:

"We are NOT breaking up and we are all still 5 united brothers in this together. Tomorrow Danny will speak for himself to all of you about what happened tonight in Seattle. We love you guys, you are the best fans in the world!"

Although the band didn't specifically state what caused the problem, vocalist Danny Worsnop has now updated his Twitter account with the following string of messages (condensed into one paragraph here):

"I'm a fucking idiot. I should never blame my actions on my relapses but tonight made me realize I have a problem. I for the first time in my life want to fix myself. I now know what regret is! I apologize from the bottom of my heart. Hopefully I grow to have some sort of compassion to myself, I live for self destruction and that's wrong. Nothing changes when you're killing yourself with poison. I love you all. And I hope you can forgive me. I officially am quitting drugs and getting drunk here and now. I want to clean up and sort my fuxking life out. I'll never stop hating myself until I stop killing myself. Thank you all for standing by me. If any R&R shows get canceled, I'm away fixing Myself. I hope you understand."

Additional details on this story, and any additional announcements from the band, will be announced as they are made available. In the mean time, you can also check out the band performing on the Daily Habit at this location.

Mourning Caress Recruits New Guitarist

Mourning Caress has checked in with the following announcement about recruiting a new guitarist:

"Dear caressing mourners,

"We finally found a new guitarist and can officially call ourselves a five-piece again. The new guy is called Wolfgang 'Sandman' Sander, a skilled guitar player and insane metalhead.

"He joined the band directly after the recordings of the new album were completed. So you naturally can't hear him on the new output. In the meantime he got introduced to our friends and families on a very intimate and private gig we played in our rehearsal room some weeks ago. It was a blast! Please check our new facebook site for some pictures of the event.

"We're also happy to unveil the title of our third album: 'Deep Wounds. Bright Scars.' As mentioned above the recordings are done and we are now facing the mixing stage, the mastering is due in April or May. Once this all is finished we need to find a suitable label to release 'Deep Wounds. Bright Scars.' The result is sure enough a heavy and very intensive yet melancholic piece of metal which makes us proud to the bone. We can't wait to share the first songs with you, it's only a matter of time..."
