Gojira Stream In-Studio Live Performance Of “Global Warming”

Gojira stream the below in-studio live performance of their track “Global Warming“, taken from their 2004 effort “From Mars To Sirius“. The video was captured at Silver Cord Studio in New York City, NY, which is owned by the group’s vocalist/guitarist Joe Duplantier.

State the band:

“A few weeks ago, we played ‘Global Warming‘ together for the first time since the recording of ‘From Mars To Sirius‘. We never played it live before, as it is a challenging one to play, and place in a set list. It’s emotionally heavy, and would almost ‘hurt’ the rest of the songs in a way.

Global warming is a reality and a relevant topic, we feel it’s good to be reminded of one of the most important challenges of our time: How to grow as a species without being a parasite to our planet, the only home we have. ‘We will see our children growing’ is a mantra for future generations, and in a figurative way we hope the children in all of us will grow, evolve, and take action for a more compassionate and meaningful world.”

Karkaos Unleash New Music Video “Tyrants”

Montreal’s melodic death metal act Karkaos is proud to unleash their new music video “Tyrants” off their latest offering “Children of The Void” featuring new vocalist Viky Boyer, drummer Justine Ethier (Blackguard) and lead guitarist Samael Pelletier along with collaborations with guest artists Lindsay Schoolcraft (Cradle of Filth) and Morgan Lander (Kittie).

The bands comments:

“Karkaos is extremely proud to release its new video for the song ‘’Tyrants’’. This new video crafted by JP Charlebois, known for his work with Ion Dissonance and Slaves On Dope, is the perfect visual vessel to bring this song to your screen by being as brutal, relentless and intricate as the song itself.

We felt that Tyrants was the perfect song to give a second and different look to Children Of The Void. Its powerful meaning can easily be applied to our world and the weird times we all seem to be going through. We need to remember that we will always be stronger united than divided and this song is a testament to people taking the lead when our leaders couldn’t. Make sure to watch it and share it with your friends and pick up a copy of the album or some merch if you enjoyed it.”

Wvrm To Embark On December Tour Supporting “Can You Hear The Wind Howl” EP

Greenville, South Carolina-based outfit Wvrm has announced a run of North American December tour dates supporting their newly unleashed EP, “Can You Hear The Wind Howl”.

Deploying six track­s in barely nine minutes, Wvrm’s “Can You Hear The Wind Howl” is a brutally-charged and volatile display of metallic grindcore unrest. Wvrm’s caustic tones, belittling percussion, and searing vocals coalesce into an onslaught fans of Dead In The Dirt, The Drip, Torch Runner, and similar acts should not pass by. Can You Hear The Wind Howl was recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks, engineered and mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Black Breath, Sect), mastered by Brad Boatright (Integrity, All Pigs Must Die, Nails), completed with artwork by Searing Limb, and released in late September through To Live A Lie Records.

Former Marilyn Manson/Jack Off Jill Guitarist Daisy Berkowitz Passes Away

Scott Mitchell Putesky, more famously known as Daisy Berkowitz, the co-founding guitarist of the Marilyn Manson (originally Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids,) and later of Jack Off Jill, has passed away according to a number of his friends and bandmates. A posting on the Jack Off Jill Facebook page stated; “Saying good bye to Scott, friend, band mate, artist , hero.. RIP Scott – “always touched by your presence dear.” Daisy Berkowitz.” An official cause of death has yet to be revealed but in 2013, Putesky was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer.

Putesky formed Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids in 1989 with the eponymous singer (AKA Brian Warner,) after meeting at an after party at the Reunion Room in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He remained with the group recording the album, “Portrait of an American Family” and the EP “Smells Like Children,” before leaving halfway through the recording of “Antichrist Superstar” due to creative differences, though he does appear on the record. He would then join Jack Off Jill in 1998 and went on to record the album, “Covetous Creature” with the group and made a guest appearance with Godhead, before recording some albums with Three Ton Gate.

Apostasy Records Signs Night In Gales

Apostasy Records announced that the label has signed German melodic death metal act Night In Gales. Fans of the early material can expect a proper rejuvenation of the band.

Night In Gales looks back at turbulent times: The first sign of life, 1995’s EP “Sylphlike,” was already one of the most successful metal-demos of all time. Therefore, label-powerhouse Nuclear Blast came into the picture, with whom the quintet signed a deal for a couple of albums. They also toured alongside In Flames, Hypocrisy, Children Of Bodom, Death, Dismember and many others and they played numerous festivals like Rockharz, the Wacken Open Air or the Summer Breeze. After some calmer years, the band returned with 2011’s brilliant album “Five Scars.” Only one year later, long term vocalist Bjoern Gooßes left the band to concentrate completely on his band The Very End.

Last year, the band announced the addition of original vocalist Christian Mueller who also sang on their initial EP “Sylphlike.” He finalized the new album, which marks a distinct step back to the band’s roots. Thus, the songs offer furious melodic twin guitar riffing, driven by technical death metal drumming, topped by a manic frustrated voice that sounds like someone is crucified upside down.

The band comments: “We are happy to confirm that Night In Gales has inked a new worldwide record deal with Germany’s finest in melodic death metal: Apostasy Records! It feels good to be back and we are 100% sure to have the full support of Tomasz and his Team, as these guys are true underground-proofed death metal maniacs, who run the label with the necessary passion and idealism. We are proud to be a part of the Apostasy roster among brothers in crime like Ablaze My Sorrow, This Ending, Nailed To Obscurity, Burial Vault, Fragments Of Unbecoming, Damnation Defaced, Sign Of Cain, a.m.o. The new album is ready to release and there will be some exiting news containing more details like album track list, cover artwork, editions a.s.o. really soon, so stay tuned for this! Cheers, NIG anno 2017”

Italian metal group Hyperion just inked a deal with Fighter Records for the release of debut album “Dangerous Days,” due out this coming November 22nd, 2017. Fighter Records comments:

“Born in Bologna in autumn 2015, Hyperion counts among its ranks some of the veterans in the local metal scene: former S.O.T. drummer Marco Jason Beghelli, former Prophecy/ Prophexy guitarist and now author and producer Davide Cotti, renowned guitar virtuoso Luke Fortini from Imago Imperii, former Children Of The Damned, and Paul Di Anno.

“The ‘Dangerous Days’ album will contain 8 songs (45 min). Production and mastering were assembled as to recreate the pure, classic, typical heavy metal sound of the 80’s in the vein of bands like Judas Priest, Annihilator, Iron Maiden, Metallica, and Megadeth.”
