Erik Rutan To Fill In For Cannibal Corpse Guitarist Pat O’Brien

Cannibal Corpse have announced that Erik Rutan will fill in for guitarist Pat O’Brien as O’Brien tends to personal issues. Rutan will appear live with the band for the Decibel Magazine Tour and the upcoming US leg of Slayer’s final tour happening this May alongside Slayer, Lamb of God, and Amon Amarth. This won’t be the first time these death metal powerhouses have worked together; Rutan has produced four albums with Cannibal Corpse (“Kill,” “Evisceration Plague,” “Torture,” “Red Before Black”) and is uniquely equipped to fill the role – he is one of the death metal’s most acclaimed guitarists and is known for his time as part of Morbid Angel (who are co headlining the Decibel tour alongside Cannibal) throughout the 90s and early 2000s, as well as handling vocals/guitars and production duties for his current band Hate Eternal.

Rutan will be appearing with the band on the following tour dates:

Cannibal Corpse will be on the tour from the start up to March 7, where they’ll be replaced by Immolation for the remainder of the trek. Morbid Angel, Necrot and Blood Incantation will participate in the whole tour.

Athanasia To Release Debut Album “The Order Of The Silver Compass” In March

Los Angeles-based metal trio Athanasia – featuring former members of Five Finger Death Punch, Sebastian Bach and Murderdolls – will release its upcoming full-length album, “The Order Of The Silver Compass,” on March 15th via Seeing Red Records and Rock Of Angels Records.

One might not expect the former members of such bands to be rooted in the fabric of extreme metal, but Athanasia is more than your average power trio. Questioning the moral fabric of man amidst complex narratives tackling power, corruption and greed, the band’s unique amalgamation of melodic metal is enough to satisfy the desires of casual listeners and extreme metal fans alike.

Recorded and produced by Bingham at Nightmare Sound, “The Order Of The Silver Compass” embodies all things heavy, dark and stylish. The album’s eight tracks were mixed by Chris Collier (Prong, Flotsam And Jetsam, Metal Church) at Mission:Black Studios and mastered by Joe Bozzi (Mastodon, L.A. Guns) at Bernie Grundman Mastering, while Jorden Haley (Dååth, Deicide, Mindless Self Indulgence) handled the cover art and design.

Athanasia was founded in California by guitarist Caleb Bingham under the band’s original name Ascension. As a result of passing the band’s early demos around LA’s Sunset Strip, the young guitarist landed a gig with newly-formed Five Finger Death Punch in 2005. Upon being released from the group in 2007 due to his age, Bingham continued to write under the name Ascension, recording several more unreleased demos (and one EP) at the behest of veteran Roadrunner Records A&R Monte Conner. Largely due to the label’s merger with WMG, negotiations broke down and the band was once again shelved while Bingham played with Swedish death metal act Zonaria from 2010-2014. After parting ways with Zonaria due to a leg injury sustained while playing with the group, Bingham decided to put all his efforts back into what he worked so hard to create…

Joined by bassist Brandon Miller and veteran drummer Jason West (Murderdolls, Wednesday 13, Sebastian Bach), Caleb Bingham resurrected the project under a new moniker, Athanasia, diligently recording its first full-length release over the span of several years.

“I’m very proud to announce that after years of literal blood, sweat, tears and countless hours of hard work, Athanasia’s debut LP The Order Of The Silver Compass is finally about to see the light of day,” says frontman Caleb Bingham. “Blast it in the car and you’ll notice your gas pedal hitting the floor in a matter of seconds! m/”

“The Order Of The Silver Compass” tracklisting:

1. Read Between The Lines
2. Spoils Of War
3. The Order Of The Silver Compass
4. Cyclops Lord (My Will Is Done)
5. The Bohemian
6. Mechanized Assault
7. Nightmare Sound
8. White Horse

Ghost Posts New Webisode “The Visit” Online

Today, multi-Grammy-nominated Swedish rock band Ghost releases “Chapter 6: The Visit,” the latest video in the band’s narrative webisode series. In “Chapter 5: The Call,” Sister Imperator, who was recuperating from a horrible car crash, discussed the merits and failings of “The Omen” feature film franchise while on the phone with Papa Nihil. In “Chapter 6: The Visit,” the story continues. Check it out below.

Twenty-nineteen is already looking to be a stellar year for Ghost. Following the band’s critically-acclaimed Fall 2018 North American tour where the itinerary included the band’s first headline – and sold out – arena shows – the Los Angeles Forum and Montreal’s Place Bell – Ghost will take its “A Pale Tour Named Death” to Europe, launching on February 3 in Lyon, France. Frontman Cardinal Copia will take a short break for a quick trip to Los Angeles where he will attend The Grammys on February 10 as the band is nominated in two categories: Best Rock Album for Prequelle and Best Rock Song for “Rats,” the song that held the 2018 record for most weeks at #1 at Rock Radio, a total of eight. In 2016, Ghost took home its first Grammy for its song “Circe” as “Best Metal Performance.” This summer, Ghost will be Special Guest on all four legs of Metallica’s “Worldwired” European Stadium tour that starts May 1 in Lisbon, Portugal.

You can’t talk about the true greats of folk-inspired melodic death metal without reverent mention of Ensiferum, and with their latest album, Two Paths, they once more affirm their place in the pantheons of the genre. Further building upon the thrilling metallic hybrid honed across six full-lengths, Two Paths is simultaneously the Finnish quintet’s most epic and far-reaching collection and their most organic, which definitely sets it apart from the pack. Additionally, the album literally takes the concept of Two Paths to heart, with two different versions of standout tracks “Don’t You Say” and “God Is Dead”. “Even though Ensiferum has always had clean vocals and choirs, harsh vocals have been the main style, and those songs worked so well with both styles that we decided to include both versions,” explains bassist/vocalist Sami Hinkka. With Mikko P. Mustonen again handling orchestral arrangements and Lassi Logren returning to play nyckelharpa and violin on a few songs, Hinkka is also more than happy that they brought “more bombastic orchestral and down to earth folk aspects” to the record, further fleshing out their vision. This also applies to the contribution of Gyula Havancsak, who provided the artwork for both Two Paths and its predecessor, One Man Army. “It was really nice to work with him again because he always wants to hear our ideas and then he adds his own magic and improvements to them, and the result is always astonishing.”
