Foul Body Autopsy Releasing New Single “21st Century Fascism”

Just six months since the release of “Perpetuated By Greed,” Tom Reynolds (under his one man extreme metal pseudonym Foul Body Autopsy) is back again with a new single. Entitled “21st Century Fascism,” the single is about the rise of the extreme right wing within modern mainstream politics.

“21st Century Fascism” was produced by Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir) and features artwork by Alan O’Neill of Zonument. The single is set for release on CD and digitally via Grindscene Records October 1st, 2016. Tom Reynolds comments:

“Not long after I finished ‘Perpetuated By Greed’ I wrote a song that would become ’21st Century Fascism’ and for some reason or another, I liked the idea of recording a single in the summer for release around the winter while I began work on the next full length. I sent a demo of the song to Russ Russell and asked if he would be interested in producing the track with me.

“A few days later Russ replied saying that he liked the track and so we booked time into his studio. For me working with Russ was an amazing experience, it was the first time I had anyone really ‘produce’ my work.

“He suggested changing some of the lyrics to make things fit better and also suggested an arrangement that would ultimately make the song much better than the original. The mixing and mastering is amazing and I would love to work with Russ again someday!”

Angel Vivaldi Posts “Crystal Planet” Cover Video

Progressive guitar virtuoso Angel Vivaldi is fresh off of his successful “Touring You Apart” tour and already planning his touring schedule for spring 2016. In the meantime, Vivaldi has been hard at work putting the finishing touches on his cover of “Crystal Planet” (featuring As Blood Runs Black’s Dan Sugarman), originally performed by guitar legend Joe Satriani.

Angel Vivaldi is pleased to unleash this re-imagined track along with its accompanying music video today. Check it out below. Vivaldi’s modern progressive take on Satriani’s guitar rock anthem sees the song in a much heavier light.

“The original has practically no rhythm guitar in it at all. A lot of those progressions were fantastic but were often overlooked by, of course, Joe’s stellar playing. My goal was to make the song groovier and exaggerate the leads with different dynamics/harmonies,” he says. “I’ve always admired Joe’s ability to say a lot with the simplest phrasing. I wanted to honor these melodies with more dramatic, sometimes even aggressive variations to compliment the feel of the rhythm guitars.”
