Tombs announces USA tour dates with 1349, Goatwhore

– September 26th, 2017 –

After recently releasing their fourth full-length, The Grand Annihilation, Tombs is heading back out on the road again in support of it, this time with 1349 and Goatwhore, leading up to the bands’ Ozzfest/Knotfest appearances. See below for all dates!

Tombs tour dates
w/ 1349, Goatwhore

Oct. 28 – The Earl – Atlanta, GA *
Oct. 29 – Hi Tone – Memphis, TN
Oct. 30 – Come and Take It Live – Austin, TX (supporting Kreator)
Oct. 31 – Tricky Falls – El Paso, TX (supporting Kreator)
Nov. 1 – Top Deck – Farmington, NM (supporting Kreator)
Nov. 2 – Dive Bar – Las Vegas, NV
Nov. 3 – The Rock – Tucson, AZ
Nov. 4 – Ozzfest @ Glen Helen Amphitheater & Festival Grounds – San Bernardino, CA *
Nov. 5 – Knotfest @ Glen Helen Amphitheater & Festival Grounds – San Bernardino, CA ^
*=no Goatwhore
^=no 1349 or Tombs

While every track on The Grand Annihilation stands separate from those around it, it is still a cohesive collection, and at no point do the stylistic twists and turns undermine its coherence. The blasting, scathing yet melodic black metal savagery of opener “Black Sun Horizon” and “Way Of The Storm” are very much built to destroy, while wielding a poignancy that is undeniable – both of which stand in strong contrast to the uncomfortable post-punk squall of “Underneath” that showcases front-man Mike Hill’s Nick Cave/Ian Curtis-esque singing voice, while the likes of the throbbing “Saturnalian” and unnerving tribal thunder of “Walk With Me In Nightmares” stand in categories all of their own.

Cripper premieres video for “Into The Fire”

– August 30th, 2017 –

On September 15th, Germany’s Cripper will release their new album Follow Me: Kill! worldwide via Metal Blade Records! The band has now launched the 2nd single taken from that album, which is entitled “Into The Fire”! The full production video for “Into The Fire” can be viewed at: youtube.com/watch?v=n3qw3yLjp1s

Cripper comments: “The video for ‘Into The Fire’ is our 8th music video. So what do you do as a band to not bore yourself with repetition? Right, you crank it up to 11 and take it to the next level! ‘Into The Fire’ is not only the track that inspired us for our upcoming album’s title ‘Follow Me: Kill!‘, it is also one of the album’s bosses so to speak. Music, lyrics, story and performance mark another milestone in Cripper‘s history. Many thanks at this point to our friends who once more helped us bringing our madness to life with this self-made video production by delivering brilliant performances and lending us their muscles and brains to make things work. We owe you!”

–yellow orange vinyl (limited to 200 copies)
–cool grey marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 100 copies)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

Follow Me: Kill! is Cripper‘s fifth album, and it adds fresh, exciting elements into their music. Still, the band never forgets where they come from and stay true to themselves within the frames of musical progression. The result is an effort that maintains the heaviness and groove the band is known for, while also containing atmospheric parts, capably realized and granting diversity.

3. World Coming Down (limited Digipak CD only)

Crimfall premieres video for new single “Until Falls The Rain”

– August 16th, 2017 –

On August 25th, Finnish cinemascope metallers Crimfall will release their new album, Amain, worldwide via Metal Blade Records! Crimfall has now premiered the first video clip in support of the new album. Please visit youtube.com/watch?v=VcTmunax5OE to see the video for the new single “Until Falls the Rain”!

Crimfall comments: “Before we unleash the third storm that is ‘Amain‘, we present you our very first music video. ‘Until Falls The Rain’ is the crushing conclusion for the album, last simmering truths are laid low, throats bared against the unforgiving fall. It was a long day of drowning under homemade sprinklers, shooing away fire brigades and mopping away thousand lakes of water. In the end we are more than satisfied with the forlorn end result.”

The video was directed by Olli Hakkinen and shot by Max Smeds.

For more previews of Amain, both singles “The Last of Stands” and “Mother Of Unbelievers” can be heard at: metalblade.com/crimfall – where the record can be pre-ordered in the following formats:

–limited Digipak CD with exclusive bonus tracks (acoustic and instrumental songs)
–180g black vinyl
–red/black marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
–skin colored marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–bluish gray marbled vinyl (USA exclusive – limited to 100 copies)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

Amain is Crimfall‘s most ambitious album yet, combining familiar elements with fresh inspiration, and wreathed in massive crisp production from Fascination Street Studios. Featuring music that spans from monumental orchestrations to songs whispered over fading pyres, Amain contains layers upon layers of grand melodies woven between jagged shadows. On this new release, Crimfall also continues to sing the stories of wars waged in vain, advocating freedom from religious dogmas and the bloody chains of tradition.

Amain track-listing:
1. Eschaton
2. The Last of Stands
3. Ten Winters Apart – pt1. Far From Any Fate
4. Ten Winters Apart – pt2. Song of Mourn
5. Ten Winters Apart – pt3. Sunder the Seventh Seal
6. Ten Winters Apart – pt4. Dawn Without a Sun
7. Mother of Unbelievers
8. It’s a Long Road
9. Wayward Verities
10. Until Falls the Rain

Crimfall live:
Oct. 13 – Helsinki, Finland – The Circus w/ Ensiferum + Wolfheart

Crimfall line-up:
Mikko Hakkinen – Vocals
Helena Haaparanta – Vocals
