Grindmother Signs With EMG

Remember the appearance of rather unorthodox group Grindmother some time back? That distinctive Canadian mother / son band -- featuring the 68 year old Grindmother herself -- has much more coming on the horizon!

The project just inked a worldwide deal with Extreme Management Group, home to bands like Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Rings of Saturn, and more. Grindmother released debut album "Age of Destruction" in April 2016, and has so far toured across the USA, Canada, and Japan, but that's just the beginning.

Upon signing, the band commented:, "Grindmother is honored to join the ranks of Extreme Management Group. We are elated by this opportunity to focus solely on our art, while the pros at EMG handle the rest. May this treaty usher in an epoch of goodwill and Grindcore!"

Manager Mark Kloeppel added, "This band is something very needed in the world. It's mere existence works to tear down social constraints in music, and completely encompasses the essence of the genre. I'm proud to be working with this stellar act!"

Stay tuned for more news on Grindmother coming soon! More...

Inverted Serenity Posts Album Trailer

Winnipeg, Manitoba-based death metal outfit Inverted Serenity is proud to announce deatils on upcoming third full-length album "As Spectres Wither," set for release on Friday, October 6th. Inverted Serenity had this to say:

“For us, this album represents a great leap forward both in terms of production quality and song writing. We were more familiar with the process of writing and recording this time around and that experience went a long way in making this album better sonically and musically.

"With that said, we don’t really have a consistent formula for writing songs nor do we really limit ourselves to a specific genre or style. This translates into a varied album that pulls a little something from our diverse influences. It’s eclectic but cohesive, at least we hope so!”

1. Dead Dialectics
2. Mitral Genesis
3. We Who Wander
4. Cornerstones
5. Paragon
6. Mechanical Gods
7. Grave
8. Lunar Cradle
9. Mountains of Stoke (Hidden Track) More...

Primitive Race Unveils New Album

Primitive Race -- the hard rock/industrial hybrid helmed by Chris Kniker with core members Mark Gemini Thwaite (The Mission UK/Peter Murphy) and Erie Loch (Wiccid/Luxt) -- will release sophomore album "Soul Pretender" on November 3rd via Metropolis Records.

As was the case with the band’s debut, Kniker brought on a group of guest musicians into the Primitive Race fold, with the full album featuring vocals by former Faith No More singer Chuck Mosley and drums by the Melvins’ Dale Crover.

The album was produced by the band’s core trio, with Kniker recruiting Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More/Sepultura) for mastering, Toshi Kasai (Melvins/Helmet) for engineering, and Joe Haze (tweaker/PIG) for mixing.

“Musically, 'Soul Pretender' was a natural progression from the first album,” explains Kniker. “To have Chuck and Dale involved was perfect! They really brought a new vision to the project. Their style is a perfect match with Mark, Erie and myself. This record is more focused and organic. I wanted more of an alternative rock record. Stripped down. Live real drums. There’s space in the record. I didn’t want some overly polished ‘perfect’ record.”

1. Row House
2. Cry Out
3. Cranial Matter
4. Take It All
5. Bed Six
6. Stepping Stone
7. Turn It Up
8. Soul Pretender
9. Nothing to Behold
10. Dancing On The Sun More...
