Metal Blade Records signs Skull Pit, featuring Mem V. Stein and Tatsu Mikami

– June 18th, 2018 –

Debut album to be expected in the fall

Metal Blade Records is happy to announce the signing of Skull Pit, a new band featuring the talents of Mem V. Stein (Exumer) and Tatsu Mikami (Church Of Misery)!

Skull Pit is a tale of two musicians from opposite sides of the heavy metal spectrum and the planet. One hailing from Tokyo/Japan, the other from New York/USA, and meeting each other in cyber space in order to strike up a friendship and musically celebrate the spirit of their youth.

Comments Skull Pit about signing to the Blade: “We are beyond excited to have signed to Metal Blade Records, as they are the original metal merchants since 1982. Our style of music could not find a more fitting home, as Metal Blade is best suited to release our music in terms of tradition, vision and our expression of heavy metal.”

Prior to writing and recording Skull Pit‘s debut album, founding members of Exumer, Mem V. Stein, and Church Of Misery‘s, Tatsu Mikami, corresponded for some years online due to their mutual love and respect for each other’s band, before embarking on their own joint venture.

The two veterans endeavored to combine their favorite elements of bands like Motorhead along with the countless outfits of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal into one blistering and highly energetic album. The songs on Skull Pit‘s debut are a clear departure from what Exumer or Church Of Misery usually sound like. Stepping away from Exumer‘s lighting fast rhythms and Church Of Misery‘s slowed down Iommi-inspired riffs, Skull Pit creates melodies in the vein of 70s hard rock and 80s NWOBHM with Lemmy’s punk attitude.

The debut album of Skull Pit will drop in the fall of this year. Stay tuned for more news coming soon!

Korpiklaani Premiere New Song “Kotikonnut” From Upcoming New Album “Kulkija”

Korpiklaani premiere a new song entitled “Kotikonnut” (meaning Homestead in English), taken from their upcoming new album “Kulkija”, which will be out in stores September 7 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Check out now “Kotikonnut” below.

Explains Korpiklaani:

“During his journey, a wanderer yearningly looks back on his home, childhood and the beauty of everything. He remembers running with his girl on the meadow, believing it to last till the end of times. Although his home is now the road and a carriage run by joy, he will still always remember the happiness of his home and youth. At the time the moon was golden, shining everywhere at night, lighting up the otherwise dark countryside and the forest. The wanderer eventually accepts that everything that comes, will one day fade into a distant memory.”

Harm’s Way will be touring in support of their new album, Posthuman. Having grown with each subsequent release, Posthuman is a devastating addition to the band’s catalog. “We’ve always stayed true to who we are and allowed the songwriting process to take shape organically from record to record, and as the band has progressed, our sound has become more refined with metal and industrial influences,” states drummer Chris Mills, while guitarist Bo Lueders succinctly sums up what people can expect when they first spin the record: “To a Harm’s Way fan, I would describe ‘Posthuman‘ as a blend of ‘Isolation‘(2011) and ‘Rust‘ (2015), but it’s sonically way more insane. To anyone else, I would simply say it’s full on heavy and full on aggression.”

Gruesome Premiere New NSFW Music Video For “Inhumane”

Death (the band) worshipping death metal outfit Gruesome (Exhumed, etc.) premiere their new music video for “Inhumane“, taken from their upcoming album “Twisted Prayers“, which will receive a June 01st release date through Relapse. Jeffrey Sisson (Exhumed, Origin) directed the clip.

Comments frontman Matt Harvey:

“We’re very stoked about how this video turned out. Jeff Sisson really took the concept and ran with it, creating something new and unique, while still in the spirit of homage that Gruesome is all about. This is the lead-off track for the record, and we feel like it really sets the tone for Twisted Prayers – a blend of OSDM savagery and a bit of melody and flash to mix things up a bit.

Play this at work to creep out your co-workers or on the bus home to get the person sitting next to you to fuck off! Thanks for checking it out, thanks to Jeff for putting this together, and as always thanks to Chuck and the boys for their legacy, which we continue to have a blast celebrating!”

Former Murderdolls Drummer Ben Graves Passes Away

Pretty Boy Floyd, has passed away at the age of 46 following a year long struggle with cancer. His fiancée Lydia has posted the following message online.

“This is incredibly hard for me to write this, but I know it is necessary because Ben has so many friends and fans. Most of you don’t know that Ben has been battling cancer for the last 11 months. It was his decision to keep his health very quiet.

“Ben passed away today, May 9th 2018, from complications due to his cancer. His diagnosis was grim, but he fought a long and hard battle to try and beat it and overcome the odds. Some battles can’t be won no matter how hard you try.

“Please respect me, his family and close friends while we grieve. Even though we knew it was eventually coming, the complication was sudden and very unexpected. It’s devastating to lose someone you love more than yourself. My heart is broken, my heart died with him.

“We will be taking him home to Massachusetts. I will organize a memorial for Ben’s L.A. friends, details to follow.”

Murderdolls frontman Wednesday 13 has posted the following message:

“It is with deep sadness to report to all the fans, that Murderdolls drummer Ben ‘The Ghoul’ Graves has passed away. I will forever cherish the memories with you. Touring all over the world for the first time, living our dream and constantly quoting The Terminator and Commando movies. Love ya buddy, there will never be another Ghoul. See ya on the other side.”
