Five Motograter Members Exit Band

It would appear that Motograter have imploded with reports of all members exiting the band except guitarist/vocalist Matt “Nuke” Nunes. Numetal.net have shared a picture of a text conversation with Motograter guitarist Jesse Stamper in which Stamper revealed that all members of the band, including himself, have quit, leaving Nunes the only remaining member.

The mass exodus follows the latest period of lineup volatility for the band, which began late last year with the firing of drummer Noah “Shark” Robertson. This past April saw bassist Mylon Guy ejected from the group, who found out about his replacement by Aeon Cruz, after reading about it online.

The band nonethelesse just wrapped up a leg of spring touring this month, that was riddled with problems and canceled shows. Motograter wrecked their tour van and trailer which caused canceled dates. Nunes went to jail as well, stating that he was picked up for driving on a suspended license. He's been bragging about it via social media, even though it caused the cancellation of performances.

Anaal Nathrakh To Release New Album In September

Anaal Nathrakh have a September 28th release date planned for their new effort “A New Kind Of Horror” via Metal Blade.

Comments singer Dave Hunt:

“This is not a happy album, it is bitter, vengeful, sarcastic, sardonic, violent, terrified and horrified, terrifying and horrifying in equal measure. Above all, it is human, and all that that entails. It’s as sincere as we could make it. There’s a lot that goes into our albums, of course, but it all comes about as a natural result of who we are, and for ‘A New Kind Of Horror‘ we felt early on that it was clearly its own thing. It doesn’t have to stand in comparison with anything, because to us it’s in a class of its own.”

Bloodbath Forced To Postpone North American Tour

Due to visa issues Bloodbath had to postpone their planned North American tour that was scheduled to kickoff this week. The group released the below statement:

“It’s with an immense mix of anger, frustration and sadness that we’re forced to announce the following news…

We will not be flying out tomorrow to begin our first North American tour we all so much looked forward to playing.

We’ve been rehearsing and preparing this for months and our gear and bags are packed ready by the doorstep, but sadly due to the US Immigration and Embassy making a mistake with our visas, they couldn’t fix it in time and reissue it.

We hoped we never would have to make this kind of announcement, we were still trusting they would issue it in time to the very bitter end, but now with less than 24hrs to go, we have to accept our fate, it ain’t gonna happen.

We’re so sorry for all of you who bought a ticket and made plans to come see Bloodbath!

On any kind of positive note, we WILL be rescheduling (nothing else is acceptable!) and prepare to play the tour as soon as possible. More news on refunds etc. ASAP.”
