Slayer’s Touring Partners Speak About Upcoming North American Shows

Members of Lamb Of God, Behemoth, Testament and Anthrax have spoken about their upcoming tour of North America with Slayer, which is part of the headliner’s, “End Of Days” farewell tour. Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe had this to say:

“If you are lucky enough to be invited to play even just once with living legends like Slayer, it’s an incredible honor. Slayer gave Lamb Of God our very first two overseas shows. Slayer has subsequently taken us on several full-length tours, both at home and abroad. The guys in Slayer and their crew have also always been very, very cool to our band. It is irrefutable that Slayer helped create the genre of aggressive metal, and all modern bands of that ilk owe them a huge debt – I know we do. To be asked to be a part of their final tour – well, it just makes you stop and realize just how lucky you are. Hail Slayer! We’ll see you on the road…”

Testament vocalist Chuck Billy added: “Sharing the stage with Slayer once again is going to be an honor, and to be a part of the final tour is going to be a special privilege for us. Slayer has influenced so many aggressive bands in their career. This tour will be an epic time for all who attend. Do yourself a favor and clear your calendars when this show comes to town. This will be your last chance to see a tour like this. Get ready North America for the devastation.”

Behemoth frontman Nergal stated: “Well, well, well… the dream comes true AGAIN it seems. Behemoth will be teaming up with mighty Slayer again for another extensive North American run later this year! Nothing short of epic if you ask me! I cannot wait to confront American legions again before we unleash the new record. One of the biggest metal tours this year: Testament, Behemoth, Anthrax, Lamb Of God and Slayer. Can you miss it out? FUCK NO!”

Anthrax bassist Frankie Bellow also commented on the tour, saying: “It’s truly an honor to be on Slayer’s final tour. Anthrax and Slayer have toured together for decades, we are family, band and crew, so we want to help give Slayer the best send-off possible, and to have one last blast with our friends. But you know, at the end of the day, Slayer will never die.”

And keeping Dime’s party tradition in full bloom,” and Pantera‘s Rex Brown adds, Dimebash, to me, is the epitome of celebrating his life and music all in one night! He was always about camaraderie, brotherhood and a killer f*ckin time! Dimebash Smokes On.”

Kyng‘s Eddie Veliz says, Dimebash is one of the best shows/parties Kyng has played. One of the greatest memories of my career happened at Dimebash 2016 when I had the pleasure of playing Pink Floyd‘s ‘Wish You Were Here’, the details to this story are very long winded but let’s just say it involved a couple of acoustic guitars and Dave Grohl. We are proud once again to play Dimebash 2018 because the proceeds always go to a good cause and a life is celebrated. Dimebag helped me mold the sound of Kyng through his music and I will always have a massive place in my heart for him, Rita Haney and the entire Pantera family.”

Adam “Nergal” Darski (Behemoth) On Decapitated: “I Know These Guys And I Know They Couldn’t/Wouldn’t Hurt A Fly”

This past September Behemoth frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski urged fans not to jump to conclusions regarding the arrest of fellow Polish death metal band Decapitated. All four members of the group had been arrested and were facing a potential trial on charges of rape and kidnapping. Last week however, all charges were dropped against the band, with the courting concern for the well-being of the alleged victim. Nergal has since spoken publicly on the case again via his Instagram, offering the following:

“4 months ago, Decapitated were accused of kidnap and gang rape – subsequently they were put in a County prison and later into a local jail…and the shit hit the fan! I recall the similar case of my friends from Satyricon/Keep of Kalessin who spent 2 months in a Canadian prison because someone accused them of rape.

It took 2 months of legal bureaucracy and the help of the Norwegian government to get them out. The accuser finally recanted the allegations, claiming it was a mistake. They never received compensation for financial losses or emotional trauma, just a brief apology and a document to prove their innocence (which they must always carry around with them).

Somehow, from the very beginning my intuition told me my friends from Decapitated would be just fine. Now, I’m not claiming to be a prophet but I’m an optimist and a good judge of character, I know these guys and I know they couldn’t/wouldn’t hurt a fly. They are now released and have had charges dropped (without prejudice).

It’s obviously a big relief to their families and friends, including myself. So…what’s next for their career after such severe defamation? What about their good name? What about their families? I hope they get their justice and strike back soon!!! And Justice For All? Well…not quite. But getting innocent people back home…HELL YES!

Last thing, friends – stay rational and reasonable and think carefully before you speak… and caste a stone at innocent people.
Welcome home brothers.”

Rise Of The Northstar Recording New Album Gojira’s Joe Duplantier

Crossover metallers Rise Of The Northstar are currently hard at work recording the follow-up to their hit debut ‘Welcame’. The band travelled all the way to New York and entered the Silver Cord Studio to record with Gojira’s very own Joe Duplantier.

Commented the band: “If touring in Japan was always our goal, making an album in New York, one of the most influential cities in the world, with Joe Duplantier producing, is one big challenge.
We’re here to enhance our blend of metal and rap and to take it to the next level. Each corner of this town is a visual mirror of the thickness of our sound. We’re gonna soak in Brooklyn and sweat it back out on record.”

Added Duplantier: “I’m excited to contribute to this album. Rise Of The Northstar is badass. Their approach of music is so direct, and they drive their career the same way. Definitely a great experience for me.”

Cannibal Corpse lands on international charts with new album, ‘Red Before Black’

– November 16th, 2017 –

Cannibal Corpse recently released their new album, Red Before Black, via Metal Blade Records; for their efforts, the band has now entered the international charts! See below for all positions:

Top 200 Current Albums #21 (USA)
Hard Music Albums #2 (USA)
Independent Albums #4 (USA)
Rock Albums #5 (USA)
Top 200 # 95 (USA)

Top 200 Charts #20 (Canada)
Hard Music Charts #1 (Canada)
Digital Music Charts #38 (Canada)

Germany #16
Czech Republic #24
Austria #29
Switzerland #29
France #75

To preview and purchase Red Before Black, please visit: metalblade.com/cannibalcorpse

Many words come to mind when you hear the name Cannibal Corpse, but one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), Red Before Black serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it very clear who sets the standard when it comes to always compelling music that is equally brutal and complex. Moreover, the band have pushed themselves again, ensuring that it stands out from their catalog. “Throughout our career we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. ‘Red Before Black‘ continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently,” asserts bassist Alex Webster. “We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums,” adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the most raw sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest and catchiest record.”

Cannibal Corpse is currently on tour in the USA with Power Trip and Gatecreeper. See below for all dates.

Many words come to mind when you hear the name Cannibal Corpse, but one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), Red Before Black serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it very clear who sets the standard when it comes to always compelling music that is equally brutal and complex. Moreover, the band have pushed themselves again, ensuring that it stands out from their catalog. “Throughout our career we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. ‘Red Before Black‘ continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently,” asserts bassist Alex Webster. “We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums,” adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the most raw sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest and catchiest record.”
