Vomitory Streaming Another Song From New Album

Swedish death metal act Vomitory has posted another new song online from the band's new album "Opus Mortis VIII." You can check out the song "Shrouded In Darkness" by heading over to the metalnews.de site here. The band also recently posted another song online titled "Regorge in the Morgue."

Comments Vomitory drummer Tobias Gustafsson: "Opus Mortis VIII is our eighth album (no shit!) - our eighth Opus of Death. And I dare to say that this is one of the strongest albums we've done, and it most certainly has the most powerful production we've ever had on any album, hands down. For the third time, we worked with Rikard Löfgren in his Leon Music Studios. We raised the bar quite a few notches in the studio - both production-wise and performance-wise, and we couldn't be happier with the result. We are not breaking new death metal ground with this album - that was never Vomitorys' mission - but Opus Mortis VIII offers diversity and dynamics that you haven't quite heard from Vomitory before. Still, this is a very intense and aggressive album in the true Vomitory tradition - all the essential signature details are there. Once you hear the opening track, 'Regorge In The Morgue,' you will need no further proof of that!"

"Opus Mortis VIII" will be released the 26th of April, 2011 via Metal Blade Records, and the track listing is as follows:

1. Regorge In The Morgue
2. Bloodstained
3. They Will Burn
4. The Dead Awaken
5. Hate In A Time Of War
6. Torturous Ingenious
7. Forever Damned
8. Shrouded In Darkness
9. Combat Psychosis
10. Requiem For The Fallen

Rival Sons Posts New Album Artwork

Californian blues-rockers Rival Sons have revealed the cover art for their forthcoming album, "Pressure & Time," which is due to be released on June 20th. The album art can be viewed below and was designed by artist Storm Thorgerson.

Photobucket

Thorgerson discusses the artwork: "I don't think you can be certain what's going on here. To me it's a picture about fear or concern. Here's someone about to descend and doesn't know what they'll face, or where this might lead. So, in his mind he's imagining the action. That's what you see - into his mind, as he focuses on what's about to happen. When he gets to the bottom of the stairs, where does he go? Turn left, right or straight ahead - anything's possible. And I hope this cover will have fans of the band intrigued for a long while. To me, the cover should be part of the album, and not just packaging."

For Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday, working with Thorgerson has fulfilled a childhood dream:

"When I was 12 or 13 I'd go through my parents' vinyl, and I got to know his name and what covers he'd done. For me, he's one of the top three in his profession of all time. And I said from when I was 15 years old that one day I wanted to work with him."

The band is also planning to release a limited edition vinyl version of the album, which will feature different artwork. Holiday continues: "We have enough ideas in the bag to make it really special. What we want is for people to look at the cover and regard it as part of the whole album experience. This is a lot more than packaging."

The album's track listing is as follows:

1. All Over the Road
2. Young Love
3. Pressure and Time
4. Only One
5. Get Mine
6. Burn Down Los Angeles
7. Save Me
8. Gypsy Heart
9. White Noise
10. Face of Light More...

"Come May, we order ye to don your tri-cornered hat, suck a lime and get ready for a plank-walkin', bilge-swillin', rig-climbin' time with your five favourite hearties, the crew of the good ship Gama Bomb!"

Origin Posts Second Track-By-Track Breakdown

Origin has posted the second of three track-by-track breakdowns of the band's new album "Entity." The second part can be read below and the artwork is available after the jump.

5. Saligia. John Longstrength: This is one of the two epics of the album if you don't count the first three songs as a single unit (which is fine if you do). We started working on this song in New York about two years ago in the winter. Despite its density and size, this song came together with relative ease (for me).

Paul Ryan: My favorite track on the album and one of the most personal when I wrote it. I didn't know if we could pull it off but we did. Took about five takes at getting the solo with the right feel. For fans of WRATH OF VISHNU!!!

6. The Descent. Paul Ryan: An interlude to give the listener a break. Peaceful yet dark.

John Longstrength: MY BEST DRUM PERFORMANCE EVER!!!

7. Fornever. John Longtrength: Something about this song that just gets me every time. It was a complete pain in the ass to learn, but every time I got it right I felt like I had accomplished something special. I wont speak any further on this song. Its music so it requires no words to be spoken about it.

Paul Ryan: Influenced by two of my favorite bands DEATH and SUFFOCATION. I was listening to a lot of Individual Thought Patterns and Pierced From Within when I wrote the music for this one. It took a little bit to get all the stops tight but once we did it was awesome!

Mike Flores: Yep, the end of the song was like playing a video game. Addicted to playing it because I was so close to playing it right. Took some time to understand it.

Legion Of The Damned Splits With Guitarist

Legion of the Damned has announced that Richard Ebisch has to stop his current activity in the band. Richard states: "I am very grateful for having achieved so much with Legion of the Damned, but after having played in bands for so many years and having toured numerous times I decided to leave the band after careful deliberation. Because of health issues it was no longer possible for me to continue at this pace. I would like to say thank you to the fans and the Legion of the damned guys and wish them, and their new guitarist, all the best for the future."

Vocalist Maurice Swinkels also stated: "We recently successfully ended Sweden Rock Cruise and have alot of other great festivals planned ahead such as Graspop, Nummirock in Finland, Metalcamp, Bang your head and With Full force, we didn't really notice anything or felt like this is going to end somewhere for Richard. During Kettersach Festival last weekend Richard announced that he would still do Paaspop this upcoming weekend, but call it an end after that, it will be a great loss for us, but we accept his decision of course."

With the question in mind of how Legion of the Damned will continue, Maurice states: "Even though this came out of blue for us, we have no intention on cancel any of the planned festivals, who is going to replace Richard Ebisch is still a question unanswered, but hopefully we will have this answered as soon as possible as well , one thing is for sure, after Paaspop finnish metalfest Nummirock is next in line and we will be there stronger than ever!"

Gwar Frontman's Sex Campaign A "Semi-Triumph"

Following last night's Golden Gods Awards, GWAR fans everywhere rejoiced as the two-time Grammy losing shock rock masters did not lose to Sevendust. Lead Singer Oderus Urungus' promise to have sex with anybody who voted for GWAR (who was up against Rammstein, Sevendust, Iron Maiden, Megadeth and Avenged Sevenfold in the category "best live show") apparently succeeded in garnering the band enough votes for Oderus to immediately begin bragging about:

"Sure Rammstein won, so what? The important thing is that we did not lose to Avenged Sevendust. They didn't win, so we didn't lose."

When questioned further about his apparent complete lack of understanding even what the other bands names were, Oderus completely ignored the question.

"I will now go on an immediate fuck-finding expedition where I will personally reward everyone who voted for us with a violent load. I will go anal in the Aleutians, missionary in Mississippi, plus I will fuck the Presidents dog on the White House lawn. This may take some time as I have to wait for as long as 38 seconds between erections. Because of this, I will be completely ignoring all of my other responsibilities, most notably the Crack-a-Thon, which will be rescheduled some time later this year."

The Crack-a-Thon, GWAR.tv's live, web-streaming fund-raiser (to raise money for drugs), had originally been set for June 3rd, but will instead will moved to sometime in September, the date to be announced soon.

In other GWAR happenings, the band has been included as part Rue Morgue's "Hymns From the House of Horror II," an annual compilation put out by Rue Morgue magazine "featuring the latest earworms to haunt your soul." You can get more info here.

Dream Theater Posts Drummer Search Documentary

Dream Theater, which has still not announced a replacement for drummer Mike Portnoy, has issued the following announcement about posting a video clip online detailing the band's search fora replacement drummer:

"A little more than a month after original drummer Mike Portnoy's sudden departure from Dream Theater, the band held three days of auditions in New York City. Over an amazing and productive three-day period, the band played, jammed and spoke candidly with seven of the world's greatest drummers, learning about them musically, personally and professionally, and assessing the fit of each drummer's incredible chops with the band's trademark prog-rock sound.

"Dream Theater have been extremely sensitive to the fact that this is not only a monumental decision in their own lives, but also a critical moment in the lives of DT fans around the world. The departure of our lifelong bandmate and friend was an unexpected and truly heartbreaking blow. The fact that as a result of that event we'd be introduced to seven infinitely capable and uniquely talented drummers was heartening.

"Dream Theater would like to share with its fans some of the intense process, along with the musical joy, that went into choosing a new drummer. Who is the best fit behind the kit?

"Go to Dream Theater's Facebook page to sign up for the mailing list and to receive more details about an exclusive and intimate look at the auditions, and to find out exactly when and how the momentous announcement about the band's new lineup will be made.

Infernaeon Members Fire Each Other

Yesterday, several metal news site reported that Infernaeon had parted ways with vocalist Brian Werner. In a situation similar to the Gorgoroth debacle where two sides of the band insisted the other had been fired, other sources are now claiming that Werner is carrying on the band's name and the bassist and keyboardist have actually been fired.

The following statement from an Infernaeon Facebook profile was quoted by several sites yesterday:

"After much forethought, Infernaeon has decided to part ways with our singer Brian Werner. He was planning on leaving the band after our appearance at the Babylon Rising Festival in Puerto Rico, and it was decided afterwards that it would be beneficial if he carried out those plans. Infernaeon is in no way breaking up, and we thank our fans for their continued support."

Another Facebook profile bearing the same name, and apparently run by Brian Werner himself, has now been updated with the following string of messages:

"Infernaeon fires bassist and keyboardist for unprofessionalism after the show in puerto rico.

"In response to this page being hacked that is definitely NOT the case, certain member that were recently fired are just starting unneeded drama instead of having some integrity. Fact is i do find it funny how a group of people who werent even on every album or where never on ANY record contract feel they have a right to a name that was well established before they ever joined the band!

"Contrary to a bullshit press release that went out yesterday i in fact will not be quitting the band by any means. That press release was sent to blabbermouth by terminated members who have 0 legal standing to use the name Infernaeon of ANY kind. Fact is i am the sole owner of ALL intellectual property rights, artwork, merch, lyrics, music and I am the only member to appear on every release."

Additional details on the status of Infernaeon and who actually remains in the band will be announced as they are made available.

The Haunted reports that the Kabuto Metal Festival that was to take place in Japan in May has been cancelled by the organizers due to the situation resulting from the earthquake and tsunami in early March. Bands who were to participate in the fest included:

White Side: Story of the Year, Thursday, Underoath, envy, Architects, Meaning, and Crossfaith

Dark Side: Morbid Angel, The Haunted, Ihsahn, Origin, Rotten Sound, and Leprous

"We hope to come back to Japan later this year," states The Haunted. The band still plans to play their Australian dates as well as their appearance in Bangkok, however.
