Tim Lambesis Arrested In Murder For Hire Plot

Update: the band has now issued a statement about Tim's arrest, which can be read here.

Six Feet Under Updates "Hell In July" Tour

Six Feet Under is currently preparing for a next round of tour dates in support of "Unborn." As previously announced, Decrepit Birth and Cannabis Corpse will be joining Six Feet Under on this tour. Additionally, up-and-coming act Dealey Plaza will open the show.

The tour begins July 10th in Houston, TX and VIP bundles are available now at this location. Bundles include: ticket to the show, Six Feet Under shirt, limited "Hell In July" poster, and a back stage pre-show hang with Chris Barnes.

Six Feet Under founder and vocalist Chris Barnes comments: "Hello, all you sick fucks! Just wanted to say hello and let all you maniacs know what we've got planned for this year. Six Feet Under is about to take to the road once again, starting this month on May 19 in Guadalajara, Mexico for the Heaven and Hell festival. We are very excited to be playing with such greats as Motorhead and Anthrax - two of my all time favorite bands! Also coming up, June 1st we will be in Memphis, TN for the Scion festival with Whitechapel and a whole bunch of other awesome bands, so that's going to be insane, as well. Then, in the middle of June, we will be heading over to Europe for three festival dates. One of which I'm really excited and can't wait to take the stage on: Hellfest in France!! Looking forward to it big time - that date is on June 23, which leads me up to the month of July with our headlining USA tour - Hell in July! Summer tours in the US are always a blast, and this one is set up for sheer devastation with opening bands Decrepit Birth, Cannabis Corpse and Dealey Plaza!

"I would just like to take this time to say and send a personal message to those in Denver, CO as well as Seattle, WA: to Whom it may concern, you may want to stock up and/or possibly grow twice as much cannabis as you have been… because once SFU and Cannabis Corpse roll into those towns, the sheer magnitude of smoking may - 1. Drain the cannabis supply of those two said cities or 2. Possibly cause low cloud formations. Fog lights should be used on all vehicles to and from the concert. More...

Tarja (formerly of Nightwish) has announced new album "Colours In The Dark" will be released in North America via Eagle Rock imprint Armoury Records on August 27th, 2013. The following press release was issued about the album:

"Despite her light and airy character, the music of Finnish songstress/former Nightwish soprano, Tarja has always been shrouded 'in black' – the color of heavy rock, mystery and elegance. With her latest studio recording, fans will find that same darkness highlighted by an array of new emotions, multihued landscapes and musical atmospheres.

"Tarja’s latest milestone emphasizes once again her impressive vocal range and continued artistic growth. Titled 'Colours In The Dark', the ten-track offering was mixed and mastered by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2) in Austin, Texas and delivers over an hour of music which includes grandiose orchestra and choir arrangements.

"Colours In The Dark follows the charting successes of 2007’s My Winterstorm and 2010’s What Lies Beneath. Further info, including cover art and track listing, to be revealed in the coming weeks. In the meantime, keep up with Tarja’s personal blog entries and recording updates at this location."

Taberah Signs With Dust On The Tracks Records

Australian power thrash act Taberah has signed a two album deal with German label Dust on the Tracks Records. The band will issue its sophomore LP "Necromancer" in July of this year (exact date not yet announced). The band is streaming the new track "2012" from the release, which can be heard below.

"Necromancer" was engineered by Theo B (Scorpion), produced and mixed by Joe Haley (Psycroptic) and mastered by Australian Metal Icon Stu Marshall (Death Dealer/Empires Of Eden/Dungeon/Paindivision).

Stu Marshall commented on the album: “Taberah's 'Necromancer' is one of the best metal releases to come out of Australia in the last 10 years”.

Inspired by the strong musical bond of Jonathon Barwick (guitarist/vocals) and Tom Brockman (drums), Taberah was born in 2004. The bands sound and live performance is derived from a vast range of influences including the traditional heavy metal styles of Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath, the rock 'n' roll swagger of AC/DC and Thin Lizzy mixed with the over the top, tongue in cheek theatrics of Queen and The Darkness. All with a slightly modern and original twist.

In 2011, the band recorded and released the debut LP "The Light Of Which I Dream," which was produced by Joe Haley of Psycroptic. The record is a chronicle of the bands early years of blood, sweat, beers and tears on the national live circuit. The album earned Taberah worldwide acclaim. More...
