John Frum Releases “Memory Palace” Video

Enigmatic, cult metal collective John Frum just unveiled a video for new song “Memory Palace.” The song is found on the band’s upcoming, debut album, “A Stirring In The Noos,” which is set for release through Relapse Records on May 12th.

Pre-orders are online now right here. The band also comments: “‘Memory Palace’ is a journey into the ever changing and expanding void we find ourselves hurtling through, and a reflection on the fleeting knowledge one stands to gain within. It also speaks to the pitfalls of our god complex and the futility of enlightenment on any scale.”

The mysterious John Frum is the manifestation of four musical minds coalescing in a collective consciousness developed from time spent playing with The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Faceless, John Zorn, Cleric and many more elite projects. This unorthodox debut maneuvers through 40 minutes of darkly psychedelic and meticulously crafted death metal, acting as the backdrop of a bad trip. Fans can also see the band live:

April 14 – Philadelphia, PA – Shred Shed w/ Surgeon + Night Raids + Special Guest Headliner TBA
April 15 – New York, NY – St. Vitus w/ Imperial Triumphant + Special Guest Headliner TBA
April 16 – Baltimore, MD – Metro Gallery w/Cemetery Piss + Special Guest Headliner TBA

Justice Theory Posts New Single “Welcome To The Family”

Finnish thrash metal band Justice Theory has released a new single titled ”Welcome To The Family.” The song chronicles a citizen who has had enough of this world shackled by foolish standards and limitations, so he builds a family of rebels to riot against all the rules.

Justice Theory’s Valtteri comments: “In the beginning we decided that our next single is going to be cheery, high-powered track. We took few steps back from massiveness and melodiousness that our previous single ‘Unbroken’ was all about. ‘

“‘Welcome To The Family’ is highly inspired by our first single ‘Necessary Evil’ and also has the vibes that Anthrax were been able to bring in their songs – Not too seriously, but convincingly. I think that we managed to get what we wanted in this song, and I’m quite sure that it will be one of the highlights on our upcoming shows. IT ROCKS!

“This song is dedicated to our dearest friends and fans, who are supported and believed in us from the very beginning. We are more than happy to see that you guys are out there! So huge thank you all!”

Drummer Jeff Plate Announces Split With Metal Church, Band Drops Off Alter Bridge, In Flames Tour

Jeff Plate, longtime drummer for Metal Church, announced his departure from the band citing time and time management issues. The band announced that it is withdrawing from the AlterBridge/In Flames tour scheduled for this May.

In a post on Facebook, Plate stated: “Hello everyone. It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing my departure from Metal Church. I came to this conclusion 2 weeks ago, and agreed to hold off on the announcement until Metal Church had made some decisions on what they were going to do.

“This is obviously not an easy decision. After many conversations with myself, my wife, my family, my management and Kurdt Vanderoof and Mike Howe, I know I am doing the right thing for my future.

“I know there will be questions and speculation. The bottom line is time, my time, and how best I manage it. I had to come to terms with the fact that time is just blowing by at the speed of light and there is no time for me to second guess or regret anything I’m doing. At this point in my life I need to be in more control of my time and career. I have a number of things I’d like to do and try, and to do these I have to give up something I truly love and am very proud of.

“I cannot thank Kurdt Vanderhoof enough for inviting me into Metal Church. For the past 12 years I have had the honor and privilege of playing some of the best, truly iconic Hard Rock/ Heavy Metal songs ever written. I have recorded 4 records with the band. The latest, ‘XI’, is not only one of my favorite Metal Church records, but I feel it is the one of the best, if not the best records I have recorded throughout my career.

“Also, I cannot thank the Metal Church fan base enough for the tremendous support. I have met thousands of you over the years and you, fans old and new, are simply the best. You have kept this band alive for the past 33 years, and I am sure there is more great music to come.

“Metal Church is in a good place, and there are a number of shows and good things coming up this year. This decision is made now to not only let me prepare for the year to come, but also to let Metal Church do the same. Kurdt Vanderhoof(g), Mike Howe(v), Steve Unger(b), Rick VanZandt(g), Tim Harding(sound and production), and Joe Obrien(President @ Rat Pak Records) have been a tremendous team, and they are also very good friends of mine. I wish them nothing but the best.

“I hope to see you all again somewhere down the road. I will keep you posted on my activities. Trust me, I will not sit still for very long. Thank you, take care.”

Just prior to Plate’s announcement, the band issued the following statement: “Due to unforeseen personnel changes within the Metal Church organization, regretfully we have to pull off the five Alter Bridge/In Flames show dates in May. We are grateful to everyone in the Alter Bridge camp for having offered us the opportunity, and would like to extend our deepest apologies to both bands, their management, and all the fans for the last minute cancellation. We had hoped we could make something work out, but that is no longer a possibility. We will be back on the road in June for all the European shows and we look forward to introducing you to our new drummer! Thank you for your understanding!”

Gruesome Streaming Cover Of Death’s “Choke On It” From Upcoming New EP “Fragments Of Psyche”

Death worshipping band Gruesome (Exhumed, etc.) premieres its cover version of “Choke On It”, taken from the upcoming new EP “Fragments Of Psyche”, which will be out March 31st on Relapse Records. Comments drummer Gus Rios:

“This is a true homage from apprentice to master for me! The idea was to reinterpret this song as if Sean Reinert had recorded it, though I’ve always been very vocal about my adoration of Bill Andrew‘s more simple but solid style, so obviously NO disrespect there! This is simply a fun reworking of what I consider to be one of the best tunes on Leprosy, and one that I thought would particularly lend itself well to some more complex grooves. Doing my best Bill/Reinert impersonation!”
