Night Demon Releasing Self-Titled EP On Cassette

Shadow Kingdom Records has set October 31st as the international release date for the cassette version of Night Demon’s self-titled debut EP. The label comments:

“Night Demon is a young trio from California who literally fell out of the sky from nowhere…well, they did when they first released the ‘Night Demon’ EP on CD in 2013. Even before its release, when they’d just created a Bandcamp page – and where Shadow Kingdom found ’em and were instantly blown away – Night Demon were invited to play the KIT festival in Europe.

“From there, the stage was set for their inevitable debut album, ‘Curse of the Damned,’ which was released last year by Steamhammer and through which the band hit the road hard and converted the masses to their heavy metal faith.”

1. Night Demon
2. The Chalice
3. Ancient Evil
4. Ritual
5. Axe Crazy*
6. Lightning To The Nations*
7. Radar Love (live)*
8. Ritual (live)*

Foul Body Autopsy Releasing New Single “21st Century Fascism”

Just six months since the release of “Perpetuated By Greed,” Tom Reynolds (under his one man extreme metal pseudonym Foul Body Autopsy) is back again with a new single. Entitled “21st Century Fascism,” the single is about the rise of the extreme right wing within modern mainstream politics.

“21st Century Fascism” was produced by Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir) and features artwork by Alan O’Neill of Zonument. The single is set for release on CD and digitally via Grindscene Records October 1st, 2016. Tom Reynolds comments:

“Not long after I finished ‘Perpetuated By Greed’ I wrote a song that would become ’21st Century Fascism’ and for some reason or another, I liked the idea of recording a single in the summer for release around the winter while I began work on the next full length. I sent a demo of the song to Russ Russell and asked if he would be interested in producing the track with me.

“A few days later Russ replied saying that he liked the track and so we booked time into his studio. For me working with Russ was an amazing experience, it was the first time I had anyone really ‘produce’ my work.

“He suggested changing some of the lyrics to make things fit better and also suggested an arrangement that would ultimately make the song much better than the original. The mixing and mastering is amazing and I would love to work with Russ again someday!”
