Second Leg Of European Tour Announced By Mayhem

Norwegian black metal icons Mayhem will embark on the second leg of the European live takeover this fall. “The Purgatorium Europæ – Pars Duorum” tour will commence September 29th in Berlin, Germany and ravage its way through twelve countries and nineteen cities, drawing to a close on October 27th in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Mayhem is commemorating the release of the 1994 landmark “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” full-length with a worldwide tour performing the monumental record in its entirety. The cornerstone record recently earned the #40 spot on Rolling Stone Magazine’s 100 Greatest Metal Albums Of All Time, the prestigious publication noting, “…Mysteriis… remains a singularly potent document, its expressions of alienation and nihilism lent an icy severity by Aarseth’s lacerating guitar buzz, session vocalist Attila Csihar’s arcane croak and presentation of Dead’s lyrical gothic terror and the pummeling drums of Hellhammer (Jan Axel Blomberg).”

9/29/2017 Colombia Theater – Berlin, DE

Body Count Interviewed By Little Punk People

Ice-T’s Body Count just released new album “Bloodlust” today via Century Media. The album features guest spots from Max Cavalera, Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, and Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe.

The freshly unveiled album has seen the release of three videos so far: “No Lives Matter,” “The Ski Mask Way,” and “Black Hoodie.” Today a new in-depth interview has come online from Little Punk People in which 12-year old metal-head Elliott Fullam asks Ice-T and Ernie C the hard hitting questions. Check it out below.

Ice-T and co-founder/lead guitarist Ernie C have crafted a mix of thrash, punk, and bottom heavy doom across five albums, hitting a zenith with the unstoppable “Manslaughter.” They embody the monumental southern California tradition of street born punk bands like Suicidal Tendencies combined with the aggressive aural napalm of metal.
