Monument Of Misanthropy Premieres Trailer For Upcoming New EP “Capital Punisher”

Austrian/French brutal death metal maniacs of Monument Of Misanthropy are set to release their upcoming new EP titled “Capital Punisher” this October. Like on the band’s critically acclaimed pre-decessor and full-length debut “Anger Mismanagement”, French drum-wizard Romain Goulon (Necrophagist, ex-Benighted) is providing studio-drums. The album’s cover artwork was created by Remy Cuveillier of Headsplit Design, Paris, France.

Today Monument Of Misanthropy has dropped a trailer with exactly 666 seconds of brand new tunes of the band’s forthcoming EP, which can be streamed via YouTube below.

Explains frontman George “Misanthrope” Wilfinger:

“After this year’s European Tour with Vader and Immolation, we went directly to the studios to put our finishing touches to this new EP. We’ve been playing “At Death’s Door” already during that 3-weeks run, and later some more new songs from it during this year’s summer festivals. People seemed to love the new tracks as much as they love the classic MoM-tracks. So if you like your deathmetal brutal with hints of deathgrind, grindcore, slam and old-school death & thrash, I think this album will be your cup of tea.

We also recorded two new covers for it (Death’s “Pull The Plug” and The Faceless’ “Prison Born”), putting the typical Monument Of Misanthropy sound to it. To sum up, I can say that with our own lyrical themes ranging from political and economic corruption, to animal abuse, and psychological struggles of a misanthropic mass murderer, I think “Capital Punisher” serves perfectly as 2017’s cataclysmic and cynical soundtrack for a world gone criminally insane. Brutal music for brutal times.

“Capital Punisher”-track list:

01 Epilogue I
02 Capital Punisher
03 Epilogue II
04 At Death’s Door
05 Epilogue III
06 Killing Spree
07 Pull The Plug (Death – cover version)
08 Prison Born (The Faceless – cover version)

“Capital Punisher” will hit stores on CD – appropriately enough – this coming Halloween, October 31, 2017 and digitally via all major digital-retailers on December 5th, 2017 (Krampus Night or Krampusnacht). Physical pre-orders and exclusive bundles for “Capital Punisher” are currently available via BigCartel HERE.

Eryn Non Dae. Signs With Debemur Morti Productions

Debemur Morti Productions is extremely proud to announce the signing of adventurous French band Eryn Non Dae. The band comments:

“We always felt that our previous labels signed us without really knowing what the band was all about. This resulted in some discomfort on both sides. Something new and exciting is coming with our agreement with Debemur Morti Productions.

“Regarding what they have done since 2003, we feel that we share a common vision about what a record can be, a work of passion, time and dedication. This is what Eryn Non Dae. had been about since day one. Creating the new album has been a strange journey and we are excited and very impatient to embrace a new era with Debemur Morti Productions!”

French death/thrash act No Return has actually returned with the follow up to 2015’s “Fearless Walk to Rise.” The new album “The Curse Within” is slated for release on November 17th via Mighty Music/Target Group.

No Return was originally formed in 1989. The band recorded its first album “Psychological Torment” (1990) in Germany with Coroner’s drummer and Marky Marquis as Art Director, then produced the second album “Contamination Rises” (1992) at Morrisound’s Studios in Tampa, Florida with the help of Scott Burns.

Ever since, the band has kept on sharing its passion for music, performing alongside other bands such as Arch Enemy, Samael, Napalm Death, Sepultura, Coroner, Motorhead and many others, all while regularly releasing new albums.

In 2015, the band released the comeback album “Fearless Walk To Rise” worldwide produced by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Aborted, Pretty Maids). Several tours followed this release including a French tour that was closed with a performance on the Mainstage of the Hellfest Open Air.

In Spring 2017, the band went back to Hansen Studios to record the 10th studio album “The Curse Within.” The track list and artwork can be found here:

New EP “Ashes” Announced By Sinsaenum

Sinsaenum and earMUSIC are pleased to announce the release of “Ashes,” the brand new EP by Frédéric Leclercq (DragonForce) and Joey Jordison’s (ex-Slipknot) extreme death metal project.

Sinsaenum’s current LP “Echoes of the Tortured,” which has been nominated as “Best Debut” by Metal Hammer Germany, is an album that has been praised worldwide as one of the freshest and finest approaches to death metal. Following the 2016 release of the band’s celebrated debut, Sinsaenum now go beyond and have truly reached the next level.

“Ashes” will be released on November 10th via earMUSIC. It is available for pre-order via Amazon and iTunes. The EP contains over 30 minutes of mind-blowing music, featuring three brand new and EP-exclusive songs, which all display Sinsaenum’s love for the roots of death metal and extreme music.

Additionally, two previously exclusive Japanese bonus tracks can finally be enjoyed by the rest of the world. To top it all off, renowned French producer and musician Frederic Duquesne (Mass Hysteria, guitar) has provided a remix for “Dead Souls.”

The cover artwork (shown below) was drawn by Maxime Taccardi, a dark, twisted artist who managed to capture the essence of Sinsaenum’s music.

“‘Ashes’ is showing a more mature version of our music, and also an angrier side,” said Leclercq. “A lot angrier. We wanted the production to be rawer. Nothing is polite here. We just want to grab the listeners by the throat and spit our hatred into their face. With this EP, we took things further. The black metal vibe is more present in the three new songs, as are the synths; they reinforce the eerie side of our music. Experimenting with keys and machine is not something we are afraid of. Musical darkness can come in many ways.”

With these impressive credentials, it is hard not to label Sinsaenum a “supergroup,” since the project embodies the joint venture of Fred Leclercq of Dragonforce and Joey Jordison (VIMIC, former Slipknot drummer). The rest of the band is of no less importance and credibility: Attila Csihar (Mayhem, vocals), Sean Zatorsky (Dååth, vocals), Seth Heimoth (bass), and Stephane Buriez (Loudblast, guitar) – all of which are well respected in their fields – complete the ensemble, making Sinsaenum premium-level heavy metal.

The track listing is:

1. “Ashes”
2. “Monarch of Death”
3. “2099 (Heretics)”
4. “Degeneration”*
5. “King of the Desperate Lands”*
6. “Dead Souls”**
* Previously Japanese Bonus Only
** Frédéric Duquesne remix

GWAR Announces North American Fall Tour

– August 15th, 2017 –

New Album “The Blood of Gods” Out October 20th via Metal Blade Records

On October 20th, GWAR will release a new studio album entitled “The Blood of Gods” via Metal Blade Records. In support of the new album, your Lords and Masters will leave their arctic slumber and return to the road to cause aural (and anal) devastation across North America. Joining in the chaos will be Ghoul, Doyle (10/20-11/5), He Is Legend (11/7-12/10) and U.S. Bastards. The tour kicks off in Richmond, VA on October 20th and runs through December 10th in Detroit, MI. The tour includes a stop in New York City on Halloween as well! A complete list of dates can be found below.

The Berserker Blothar had this to say about the upcoming tour:
Humans, we are coming to tear your world apart with a live performance the likes of which has never been seen on this or any other planet! This album, “The Blood of Gods,” is the greatest thing since French toast. Just hearing these songs performed will result in an instant paroxysm of weeping, gnashing of teeth, and the uncontrollable voiding of your filthy bowels. Now, we are taking the whole bloody shit show on the road, with the most spectacular, blood-drenched, gruesome, and terrifying rock concert of all time. Don’t miss your chance to sacrifice yourself to GWAR at a venue near you!

Bohabs! Be the coolest corpse in the pile! Don’t miss your chance to pledge your allegiance to GWAR each night when they rape and pillage your town. Head to gwarvip.com to take part in “The Lords and Masters VIP Experience“.

General admission tickets and VIP Packages go on sale to the public this Friday August 18th at 10:00 AM Eastern.

The Lords and Masters VIP Experience Includes:
• One (1) General Admission Ticket with Venue Early Entry (potentially guest list)
• Exclusive access to GWAR soundcheck where you will pledge allegiance to your Lords & Masters!
• Invitation to play a GWAR instrument onstage at soundcheck
• Tour of the weapons of your Lords & Masters
• Crowd Free Merch Access
• One (1) Souvenir item signed by members of GWAR
• One (1) Souvenir GWAR laminate

• You will be killed by GWAR on stage during the show
• Designated Slave Pit Area to pledge your allegiance before you are killed on stage by GWAR!

There are only 5 VIP TICKETS available per show, that’s it so don’t wait.

Concerning the album: “The Blood of Gods” is nothing less than a sacred text chronicling the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that is uptight and wrong with the world. Along the way, the band challenges the sins of their great mistake, from politics, pollution, and organized religion, to fast food, and factory farming. Humans are shown as what they are; a parasitic disease that must be eradicated before they suck the planet dry. Meanwhile, Sleazy P. Martini, the crooked entrepreneur who discovered the Scumdogs, and has always envisioned them as a sort of horrific boy band, finally managed to convince the group to write a hit song called “I’ll Be Your Monster.” If all goes according to plan, it may be just stupid enough to work!

Alcest Re-Issuing “Souvenirs D’un Autre Monde” Special Edition

Released in 2007, Alcest’s debut album, “Souvenirs d’un autre monde,” marks the starting point of the French band’s extraordinary career.

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of this groundbreaking record, Prophecy Productions has unveiled plans to reissue “Souvenirs d’un autre monde” in two very special limited edition formats on September 22nd.

With the release of “Souvenirs d’un autre monde” (English: “Memories from another world”), Alcest mastermind Neige forged a luminous sound that floats on the fringes of metal, yet incorporates emotions of euphoria, bliss, and nostalgia. The album has become known as one of the fundamental releases of the blackgaze / post-black metal genre, and a record that continually influences countless other bands in its wake.

In 2016, the release was selected by Pitchfork as one of its “50 Best Shoegaze Albums of All Time.”

1. Printemps Émeraude (“Emerald Spring”)
2. Souvenirs d’un autre monde (“Memories from another world”)
3. Les Iris (“The Iris”)
4. Ciel Errant (“Wandering Sky”)
5. Sur l’autre rive je t’attendrai (“On the other shore I will wait for you”)
6. Tir nan Og (Irish: “Land of the Young”)

Fall Of Summer Festival 2017 Finalizes Lineup

The Fall Of Summer team is glad to reveal the complete lineup for the 2017 edition today, issuing this statement:

“First, we are happy to announce a very important band in the Fall Of Summer history, since they were the first band we announced in 2014 and gave us their trust when all of this was just a project and we’ll always be grateful for that. We are proud once more, to announce that British metal legends Venom are back in Torcy and you better be there!

“To continue with British bands from the 80s, they represent 30 years of crust all by themselves and we’re not even sure you are extreme enough to take it! So get ready to welcome Doom in September!

“Now we go a bit more north with Norwegian black metal legend Gaahl and his new band Gaahls Wyrd for a mesmerizing performance including songs from Gorgoroth, God Seed, and Trelldom.

“The last band of this announcement is French and you may not know it yet, but if you like black metal you will probably come back home from Fall If Summer with some of their albums, so we advise you to start listening now to Ende.”
