Opeth Announces NY, London, and Sydney Live Shows

Opeth will release 12th studio album, “Sorceress,” on September 30th via the band’s imprint label Moderbolaget Records alongside Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

In celebration of this release, the band has planned special shows at historic venues around the world, including Radio City Music Hall in New York on October 1st, Wembley Arena in London on November 19th and the famed Sydney Opera House on February 6th, 2017.

These memorable performances also celebrate the recent release of Opeth’s “Deliverance & Damnation” box set, featuring the classic 2002 and 2003 records as one complete work as originally intended.

Opeth will be performing music from the upcoming album as well as fan favorite cuts from the band’s celebrated catalog and closing the shows with a special set featuring material from “Deliverance & Damnation.” Mikael Akerfeldt comments:

“We’re getting pumped up for the coming ‘Sorceress’ world tour. We have 3 shows scheduled that are quite out of the ordinary due to their legendary status and location. The SSE Wembley Arena in London/UK. Radio City Music Hall in New York/USA, and the famous Sydney Opera House/Australia.

“These three shows will be completely unique in terms of songs, spanning over 2 separate set lists. We’ll pull out songs from our back catalogue and mix it up with newer stuff during the first set. The 2nd set will consist of songs exclusively from the ‘Deliverance/Damnation’ records, that was just celebrated with a re-release combo package by the newly revived Music For Nations label.

“So it’s a little bit of a celebration indeed! We’ll only play this set list 3 times on the whole world tour, so if you miss it, you’ll have missed it. Of course all other shows will be treated with the same amount of respect and we’ll chisel out a nice diverse set list spanning over our entire career for every single show during the tours. We very much hope to see you there!”

Kissing Candice Streams New Song “Taken”

Kissing Candice is now debuting a brand new song titled “Taken,” which can be heard in the player below.

“’Taken’ represents a new era of Kissing Candice,” declares bassist Grippo. “We went into the studio with open minds and a blank slate, leaving everything at the door. ‘Taken’ is the song we have wanted to write.”

Guitarist Dreamer adds that the track is “an emotional introspective of the psyche when the most important footholds in life are taken away from you, whether by force or other means.”

After performing on the main stage at this year’s Gathering Of The Juggalos, Kissing Candice is preparing to bring a newly produced, macabre stage show to the masses this fall, including the Rock And Shock Festival in Worcester, MA on October 15th.

New Video Clip “Fallen Into Disuse” Available From Wormrot

Grindcore outfit Wormrot has just released a brand new music video for the track “Fallen Into Disuse” taken from the forthcoming album “Voices,” which will be released on October 14th via Earache Records.

The band had this to say this about the song: “Unconscious abandonment from reality. Desperately trying to be accepted into the norm. At the very least. Failed miserably.”

Living in a country that executes more of its citizens than any other in the world helps to maintain the rage and anxiety that fuels the best grind. After a 4 year hiatus the hottest name in grindcore is back with a much awaited third studio album. “Voices” offers up 20 ferocious slabs of punk-fueled grind of the highest calibre. Feral grindcore in the grand tradition of early Earache releases like Napalm Death, Brutal Truth and Terrorizer.

Hailing from Singapore, Wormrot are Earache’s first ever signing from the East, having risen to prominence via series of primitive underground releases.

The track list for the album is:

1. Blockhead Fuck Off
2. Hollow Roots
3. Exit Fear
4. God’s in His Heaven
5. Oblivious Mess
6. Descending into the Unknown
7. Dead Wrong
8. Fallen into Disuse
9. The 1st World Syndrome
10. Shallow Standards
11. Fake Moral Machine
12. Forced Siege
13. Take Aim
14. Still Irrelevant
15. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Grind
16. Compassion Is Dead
17. Buried the Sun
18. Defaced
19. The Face of Disgrace
20. Outworn

New Album Details For “The Others” Announced By Northern Crown

Florida Doom Metal force Northern Crown has announced the October 14th release of the full-length debut album “The Others.” Following 2014’s critically acclaimed EP “In the Hands of the Betrayer,” the new Northern Crown is stretching out to new heights, with emphasis on the rock organ and a less rigid approach to the genre.

Main songwriter and guitarist Zachary Randall notes that “this is easily the most personal art I’ve ever created, both musically and lyrically.” The care and attention to detail have refined the songs, creating real character and vision. Northern Crown is the sound of realization and reaction, with a touch of smoke and mirrors. Equal parts austere and ostentatious, but heavy all the way through.

Vocalist/guitarist Frank Serafine notes, “we know what we’re good at now, and focused more on bringing out those performances from each other.” The long-running title track, recalling a quote from philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, is sure to be another enthralling critical favorite.

Serafine summons a heady blend of his influences, such as Ronnie James Dio, Rob Halford, Roy Khan, and Jorn Lande, for his performance. Former Northern Crown founding member Leona Hayward returns to the fold, rounding out the rhythm section with a heavy Steve Harris/Geezer Butler-inspired attack. Drummer Josh Brown is guided by the rule of elegant simplicity in his stylings and momentum. Guest performers on The Others also include Nightfall/Dark Hound guitarist Evan Hensley and organs by Vincent Perez.

The track listing is as follows:

1. With Malicious Eye
2. Surreality (The Tell-Tale Mind)
3. No One Came to Mourn Me
4. Apostate
5. A Pox Upon Your House
6. Les Autres
