Whitechapel launches new single, “Black Bear”

– December 13th, 2018 –

Artwork by Branca Studio

On March 29th, Whitechapel will release their 7th full-length, The Valley, via Metal Blade Records. Mixed by David Castillo, mastered by Ted Jensen, and produced once again by Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, The Black Dahlia Murder), The Valley is a reference to the part of Hardin Valley (west of Knoxville, Tennessee) where vocalist Phil Bozeman grew up. Set against this backdrop, he approaches his subject matter unflinchingly, building upon everything that came before, making it clear that he has survived that which he was forced to endure and is not afraid to confront it. “Phil has been upfront in his lyrics in the past about hardships he endured in his life as a child, and I believe with this record we tried to paint a better picture of that,” says guitarist Alex Wade, who alongside his bandmates, stands 100% behind everything their vocalist has to say. “I feel our music is Phil’s release from his past, being able to get it out and speak about it, and hopefully anyone who hears it that may have gone through similar experiences can find some release in it as well.”

For a preview of The Valley, the new single “Black Bear” can be heard now at: youtu.be/X7pvYfWD1P0

Anyone throwing The Valley on for the first time will immediately recognize it as the work of Whitechapel, yet as has been the case with each release, there is also evolution in play. “Sound-wise, it’s all over the place,” Bozeman states plainly. “There’s aggression, and then you’re hit with ominous and emotional guitar riffs. It’s mean, but then transfers to soft and inviting. It’s a whirlwind of emotions throughout.”

Stay tuned for more news about The Valley coming soon!

Hatebreed Announces 25th Anniversary Tour With Obituary, Cro-Mags, Terror And Fit For An Autopsy

Hatebreed remain one of the most relevant and impactful acts in the hard rock and metal scenes. The Connecticut band will celebrate 25 years of ruthless breakdowns, pit-stirring anthems, and poignant lyrics across eight albums and consistently sold-out shows in 2019. The band, which has gone from playing basements and backyards to being a featured worldwide attraction on countless festivals and high-profile tours from OZZFest to Warped Tour to Download, will commemorate two-plus decades by embarking on a 25th anniversary tour.

The first leg of the tour will feature support from Obituary and Cro-Mags, two bands that Hatebreed have covered in their career and who have influenced the signature and instantly recognizable Hatebreed sound. Terror and Fit for an Autopsy will round out this “can’t miss” juggernaut of a lineup. The initial trek will kick off in Philadelphia in April, with an additional leg to be announced shortly. All confirmed dates are below.

“I can’t believe it’s been 25 years already,” said Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta. “We’re excited to bring out this massive tour package with some of our favorite bands. Every band on this bill is a headliner in their own right. The show will be run festival-style with bands you don’t want to miss playing early. Activate the pit!”

“Looking forward to this one – 25 years of Hatebreed, celebrated with not only friends, but a couple bands who influenced us so much that we covered their songs on For the Lions. Come celebrate the entire catalog with us!,” said Hatebreed guitarist Frank Novinec.

“All killer, no filler here,” said Hatebreed drummer Matt Byrne. “This April will be a sick tour for Hatebreed. Celebrating 25 years is a big accomplishment for any band. But it’s that much sweeter when you’re doing it with some of your favorite bands in tow. We love Obituary so much that we covered them on our For the Lions record. We love Cro-Mags so much that we covered them on our For the Lions record. We love Terror and Fit For An Autopsy so much that… 😉 See you all in April!”

“We are excited to be invited to Hatebreed’s 25th anniversary US tour and super honored to be a part such an awesome lineup,” stated Obituary drummer Donald Tardy. “Looking forward to throwing down each night with them and bringing some of our southern swamp metal to this tour. Gonna be sick!”

“Hatebreed’s 25th anniversary tour is gonna be a banger – the Cro-Mags are psyched as f*ck to be part of it,” proclaimed frontman John Joseph.

“The lineup for this tour is insane,” said Terror frontman Scott Vogel, echoing all of those sentiments. “We are very much looking forward to being on this run with some of our favorite bands.”

The tour dates are as follows:

March 7 – San Diego, CA – House of Blues*
April 4 – Philadelphia, PA – Franklin Music Hall**
April 5 – Worcester, MA – The Palladium
April 6 – Clifton Park, NY – Upstate Concert Hall

Tom Warrior’s Triumph Of Death To Perform Hellhammer Set At Hellfest 2019

Hellhammer existed for a mere two years, from May 1982 to May 1984. During this time, the band wrote material for three demos, one 12″ EP, and the legendary Death Metal compilation album, along with a number of unrecorded songs.

In light of Hellhammer’s now mythically iconic status in the global metal scene, it is almost inconceivable that most of this music has never been performed live.

Hellhammer’s successor group, Celtic Frost, formed by ex-Hellhammer members Tom Gabriel Warrior and Martin Eric Ain, initially played two of Hellhammer’s songs but soon abandoned this habit due to the band rapidly developing its own material. Tom Gabriel Warrior’s Triptykon, founded in 2008, have played one or the other rare Hellhammer song during special occasions. The vast body of Hellhammer’s work remains unperformed, however.

Until now.

The resurrection of the music of Hellhammer has been an idea Tom Gabriel Warrior and Martin Eric Ain have discussed for many years, sparked not least by their renewed collaboration in the reformed Celtic Frost in the 2000s and by the years of work on Warrior’s second book Only Death Is Real (2009), which details the history of Hellhammer and early Celtic Frost.

Tom Gabriel Warrior: “Hellhammer will never return and will never be reformed. It is absolutely impossible to reform a band so closely linked to a very specific and unique period in time. I never considered it, no matter how substantial the offers that were pitched to me over the years. But Hellhammer’s music exists, and it is an extremely important part of my life’s path. And I would like to play it onstage before my demise.”

The first step towards the realization of Triumph Of Death, named after Hellhammer’s most infamous song and intended to be a very respectful and authentic tribute to Hellhammer, were taken years ago. Triumph Of Death consists of some of Warrior’s closest friends; individuals who not only love this music but truly understand it. The line-up emulates Hellhammer’s final incarnation of April/May 1984, when the group had added an additional guitarist.

Triumph Of Death will commence playing Hellhammer’s music onstage in 2019. It is a project with an open end. Apart from wage considerations to perhaps release an occasional live EP, Triumph Of Death will not record any new music but is solely dedicated to performing both well-know and obscure Hellhammer songs. The project is based in Zurich, Switzerland.

Triumph of Death will perform live at the Hellfest Open Air Festival on June 21st, 2019.

Triumph Of Death:
Tom Gabriel Warrior (Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Triptykon) – voice/guitars
Mia Wallace (Niryth, The True Endless, Kirlian Camera) – bass
Michael Zech (Secrets Of The Moon, Odem Arcarum) – guitar/vocals
Alessandro Commerio (Forgotten Tomb, Hiems) – drums
