Seven Nines And Tens Splits With Bassist/Drummer Earl Heath

Seven Nines and Tens has checked in with the following announcement about parting ways with the band’s drummer/bassist:

“On a melancholy note, our longtime bassist/drummer Earl Heath has chosen to leave Sn&t. His departure is completely amicable and his enthusiasm and jaw dropping talents will be markedly absent and wholeheartedly missed from this point forward.

“We had a stellar run and just like in the case of recently departed member Riley Roukema, the door is always open on Saturdays boise. Kerry and I are still very much a band and we will keep you updated regularly.”

The band also recently teamed up with us to premiere the new single “Constants & Axioms/Kemptville.” Check out the single at this location.

Satanic Threat Announces "In To Hell" Album’s International Physical Releas

Hells Headbangers has announced March 19th as the international release date for Satanic Threat’s “In to Hell” on both CD and LP formats. The following press release was issued about the band:

“Featuring current members of Nunslaughter and an ex-member of Midnight, Satanic Threat are everything their name implies: fast, blasphemous, hardcore-HELL-punk straight outta the wastelands of Ohio! Originally released in 2008, Satanic Threat’s lone In To Hell 7” sold through its original pressing of 1000 copies in no time flat, and quickly became something of a mini-classic.

“The band’s cult grew despite no further releases, and Satanic Threat played only one live show ever, in September 2008 in their hometown of Cleveland. Now, Hells Headbangers collects Satanic Threat’s entire ouvre, both the 8-song In To Hell 7″ and their 8-song live set, onto one long-playing format. They’re not Christian…they’re just a Satanic Threat!”

The track listing is as follows:

1. Guilty of Hating Christ
2. He’s on the Cross
3. Small God, Big Cross
4. Satanic Threat
5. I Ain’t Gotta Worship
6. Being Black
7. Cursing At The Cross
8. Don’t Follow Him
9. He’s On The Cross (live)

Exhumed Announces February Tour Dates With Phobia

California gore lords Exhumed will return to the road this February alongside grind behemoths Phobia. The short West Coast beat down will commence February 15th in Lancaster, California and conclude February 23 in San Francisco.

The latest stretch of dates follows Exhumed’s maniacal run with Napalm Death and Municipal Waste at the end of the year, which was met with a host of hurdles including being denied entry into Canada and vehicular failure that left them temporarily stranded in Alabama. Comments vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey:

“As happy as we were to get home for the holidays, we thought we should make time to hang out with our old friends in Phobia and grind through our home state of California. We had so much fun playing out-of-the-way places during the impromptu one-off dates we did during the Napalm Death/Municipal Waste tour, we thought we would hit some nooks and crannies back home that we haven’t played in years. Plus, we’ll get a chance to get a bunch of our buddies’ bands on the bill like POOR, Gravehill, DIS and Mortuous. We’ve been itching to play some stuff from the new album live and we’re working out a seriously revamped setlist for this one, so come on out California! Let’s have a few beers, let it loose, and get weird!”

Check out the band’s latest tour blog here or catch Exhumed live:
