Drummer Jeff Plate Announces Split With Metal Church, Band Drops Off Alter Bridge, In Flames Tour

Jeff Plate, longtime drummer for Metal Church, announced his departure from the band citing time and time management issues. The band announced that it is withdrawing from the AlterBridge/In Flames tour scheduled for this May.

In a post on Facebook, Plate stated: “Hello everyone. It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing my departure from Metal Church. I came to this conclusion 2 weeks ago, and agreed to hold off on the announcement until Metal Church had made some decisions on what they were going to do.

“This is obviously not an easy decision. After many conversations with myself, my wife, my family, my management and Kurdt Vanderoof and Mike Howe, I know I am doing the right thing for my future.

“I know there will be questions and speculation. The bottom line is time, my time, and how best I manage it. I had to come to terms with the fact that time is just blowing by at the speed of light and there is no time for me to second guess or regret anything I’m doing. At this point in my life I need to be in more control of my time and career. I have a number of things I’d like to do and try, and to do these I have to give up something I truly love and am very proud of.

“I cannot thank Kurdt Vanderhoof enough for inviting me into Metal Church. For the past 12 years I have had the honor and privilege of playing some of the best, truly iconic Hard Rock/ Heavy Metal songs ever written. I have recorded 4 records with the band. The latest, ‘XI’, is not only one of my favorite Metal Church records, but I feel it is the one of the best, if not the best records I have recorded throughout my career.

“Also, I cannot thank the Metal Church fan base enough for the tremendous support. I have met thousands of you over the years and you, fans old and new, are simply the best. You have kept this band alive for the past 33 years, and I am sure there is more great music to come.

“Metal Church is in a good place, and there are a number of shows and good things coming up this year. This decision is made now to not only let me prepare for the year to come, but also to let Metal Church do the same. Kurdt Vanderhoof(g), Mike Howe(v), Steve Unger(b), Rick VanZandt(g), Tim Harding(sound and production), and Joe Obrien(President @ Rat Pak Records) have been a tremendous team, and they are also very good friends of mine. I wish them nothing but the best.

“I hope to see you all again somewhere down the road. I will keep you posted on my activities. Trust me, I will not sit still for very long. Thank you, take care.”

Just prior to Plate’s announcement, the band issued the following statement: “Due to unforeseen personnel changes within the Metal Church organization, regretfully we have to pull off the five Alter Bridge/In Flames show dates in May. We are grateful to everyone in the Alter Bridge camp for having offered us the opportunity, and would like to extend our deepest apologies to both bands, their management, and all the fans for the last minute cancellation. We had hoped we could make something work out, but that is no longer a possibility. We will be back on the road in June for all the European shows and we look forward to introducing you to our new drummer! Thank you for your understanding!”

Gruesome Streaming Cover Of Death’s “Choke On It” From Upcoming New EP “Fragments Of Psyche”

Death worshipping band Gruesome (Exhumed, etc.) premieres its cover version of “Choke On It”, taken from the upcoming new EP “Fragments Of Psyche”, which will be out March 31st on Relapse Records. Comments drummer Gus Rios:

“This is a true homage from apprentice to master for me! The idea was to reinterpret this song as if Sean Reinert had recorded it, though I’ve always been very vocal about my adoration of Bill Andrew‘s more simple but solid style, so obviously NO disrespect there! This is simply a fun reworking of what I consider to be one of the best tunes on Leprosy, and one that I thought would particularly lend itself well to some more complex grooves. Doing my best Bill/Reinert impersonation!”

Antropofagus Premieres New Song “Spawn of Chaos” From Upcoming New Album “”M.O.R.T.E.”

Italian death metal horde Antropofagus premieres a new track called “Spawn of Chaos”, taken from the band’s upcoming third full-length, “M.O.R.T.E. – Methods of Resurrection Through Evisceration”, which will arrive in stores on May 12th, 2017 through Comatose Music (CD) and Everlasting Spew (vinyl).

Explains guitarist Francesco Montesanti the changes the band has made concerning writing and recording the album: “We decided to go with a warmer and “fatter” sound this time. Tunes are more straight to your face than the ones in AOL, more groovy, I’d say this is the most old schoolish and evil Antropofagus album to date. Me and Dave Billia (drums) worked hard to make sure this album would’ve had a deeper, sanguineous sound and I’ve also went from a 6 to a 7 strings guitar this time.”

Check out now “Spawn of Chaos” below.

Adds vocalist Tya De Fazio:

“This is definitely the Antropofagus album which we worked the most on, the one that required the highest tribute from us. As on a conceptual level, it’s drenched of my own blood. M.O.R.T.E. is a continual succession of thoughts, shadows and nightmares shaped into music, extreme and hate-filled against all which is dogmatic to humanity’s eyes. A process of rebirth through the evisceration of my own self.”

Swallow The Sun’s Juha Raivio Comments On Absence From Live Shows

Fans catching Swallow The Sun live recently have noticed that long time guitarist Juha Raivio has been curiously absent, with Juho Räihä standing in his place. Today Raivio issued the following statement about the situation:

“As people are asking all the time from me if I have quit Swallow the Sun, or why am I not playing live with the band anymore, here is some answers for you. Answer is of course not. I formed the band 17 years ago and have written 8 STS albums and one EP altogether since then. I would love nothing more than play live for you as that is where my heart is, but life didn’t go that way.

“This music and the lyrics are just too personal to go in front of the people at the moment and rip your heart open again and again. I hope you understand. Maybe one day. But please go and support the boys on tour and show your love to Juho Räihä who has been doing great job filling in for me. Take care now.”

Inglorious Releases “I Don’t Need Your Loving” Music Video

As previously announced, Frontiers Music Srl is pleased release “Inglorious II” on May 12th, 2017. Today, the first official music video from the album has come online – check out “I Don’t Need Your Loving” below.

Inglorious frontman Nathan James comments on the new song and video: “The ‘I Don’t Need Your Loving’ intro was written by Andreas (lead guitar) and as soon as I heard it I knew it was gonna be one of my favorites.

“I wrote the chorus in about 5 minutes and the song was one of the last I recorded for the album. We are so happy with how it came out and Kevin Shirley’s mix took it to a whole new level. I can’t wait to play it at the festivals this year!

“We filmed the video at Parr St. Studios in the very room we recorded the album. We love partying in Liverpool and Parr St. is the largest recording studio in the UK outside of the capital. (Just before we shot this video Justin Bieber was in the same studio recording something…)”

Slayer, Lamb of God, and Behemoth to spread the apocalypse this summer on tour in North America

– February 28th, 2017 –

There are many perilous ways one can spend time off – volcano-boarding down Cerro Negro, Nicaragua’s active volcano, or maybe bungee jumping from a helicopter over the bubbling crater of Chile’s Villarrica volcano. How about a visit to Sao Paulo’s Snake Island, home of some 4000 golden lancehead vipers whose venom can melt human flesh, or shark diving without a cage in South Africa. But nothing is quite as hazardous or risky as a night in the pit at a Slayer concert. Add to that the ferociousness of Lamb of God and Behemoth, and you’ve got a Satan-approved triple bill of Biblical proportions.

The six-week expedition will rage across North America beginning July 12 in Bemidji, MN, winding up in Phoenix, AZ on August 20. Slayer and Lamb of God will also play Wisconsin’s Rock Fest 2017 (7/13) and Rock USA 2017 (7/15), and then meet up with Behemoth at the Chicago Open Air Festival on July 16. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 3; log on to for all purchasing details.

Slayer‘s Kerry King comments: “As metal tours go, this is the one that your fellow metal heads will be bragging about if you miss it! Not very often I get to go on tour where we are all friends to start. That being said, the potential for greatness at these events is mind blowing. I look forward to being a part of it, and hanging with old friends- bands as well as fanatical fans! Let the festivities begin!!”

Lamb of God‘s Randy Blythe comments: “It’s been a while since we’ve toured with the almighty Slayer, & even longer since we’ve hit the road with our friends in Behemoth– I can’t wait! This tour is gonna be the feel-good event of the summer- the gigs are gonna be like the Haight-Ashbury during the Summer of Love in ’67! Ok, so that’s complete bullshit, it’s gonna be absolutely nothing like that, so don’t show up with flowers in your hair looking for free hugs or anything stupid like that. It will definitely be a good fucking time though (as long as your definition of a good time means brutal, caustic, and hideously loud music)- see ya there!”

Behemoth‘s Adam “Nergal” Darski comments: “It is with the utmost pride we are announcing the Slayer, Lamb Of God and Behemoth Summer tour! We are beyond excited to be joining this bill with these living legends and our friends one more time! We are also stoked about coming back to North American shores for the last time before kicking off the next album cycle. Come and join this EXTREME metal feast with us!”
