GWAR delivers “State of The Union” and drops new song, “El Presidente”

– September 13th, 2017 –

The countdown is on as GWAR gets ready to release their bone-crushing, corpse-grinding new opus The Blood of Gods out October 20th via Metal Blade Records. As the world continues hurtling through space towards a great conflagration of death and destruction, your alien overlords have dropped “El Presidente,” the second single from the album. Hopefully this will speed things along! Head over to metalblade.com/gwar to listen to the track and pre-order your copy of The Blood Of Gods. Digital pre-orders come with instant downloads of both “Fuck This Place” and “El Presidente.”

Additionally Beefcake the Mighty, has issued a brief “State Of The GWAR Union” address. Watch it here: facebook.com

Concerning the album: The Blood of Gods chronicles the rise of humanity against their makers, and the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that oppose them. Along the way, the band challenges the sins of humanity 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!

GWAR LIVES MOTHERFUCKERS!

Eyes Of The Sun signs worldwide deal with Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records

– September 12th, 2017 –

Photo credit: Sophy Holland

Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the worldwide signing of Brooklyn’s doom metal trio Eyes Of The Sun! After releasing their self-titled EP in 2010, and debut full-length Chapter I in 2013, the band is now poised to release their sophomore effort in 2018 via Blacklight Media/Metal Blade Records.

Eyes Of The Sun comments: “This is the absolute highlight of our journey and we look forward to the days ahead. We are extremely proud to be part of the Blacklight Media/Metal Blade family and its history. This is a testament to the support of our friends, family and fans that have been with of us throughout the years.”

Chris Santos (Blacklight Media) adds: “The beauty of Blacklight Media, for me, is that I get to work with bands from so many different genres of metal, and am so psyched to be building such a diverse and uniquely different roster of amazing metal bands. On that note, I’m super stoked to be working with my friends Eyes Of the Sun from right here in Brooklyn, who are a crushingly heavy, wall-shaking earthquake of heavy doom with a live sound that has to be heard to be believed.”

Eyes Of The Sun was conceived in early 2007 by bassist/vocalist Jeff Blanchard. Long-time friend Miguel De Jesus Jr. joined the ranks with Jeff a few months later on guitar. Within a few years, and after a couple of past members on second guitar and drums, Chris O’Neil joined as the permanent drummer. As a trio, they performed countless shows over the past 10 years, delivering their unique brand of doom metal – which leaves listeners with a range of emotions, that the band themselves then experience and extract from. The band explains: “It is known throughout the laws of science and nature that the sun creates and sustains life…Now it stands witness to the atrocities, depletion and vile consumption manifested by mankind, which it originally sustained life for. In our way, we portray what is seen through the Eyes Of The Sun.”

Stay tuned for more news about Eyes Of The Sun coming soon!

Eyes Of The Sun line-up:
Jeff Blanchard – Vocals & Bass
Miguel De Jesus Jr. – Guitar
Chris O’Neil – Drums

Cripper premieres video for new single, “Mother”

– September 11th, 2017 –

This Friday (September 15th), Germany’s Cripper will release their new album, Follow Me: Kill!, worldwide via Metal Blade Records! The band has now launched the 3rd and final single taken from that album: “Mother”! “Mother” is being premiered as a full production video, so make sure to check it out at: youtube.com/watch?v=N1Us0UMmPhw

Cripper comments: “Choosing the 3rd single from ‘Follow Me: Kill!‘ was very easy for us. ‘Mother’ marks one of the album’s backbones but can also stand on its own. The song speaks its own distinct, gloomy and heavy language, which we transported into the video. The result is a dark and very personal piece that visually translates ‘Mother’. Within the context of the previous singles, ‘Pressure’ and ‘Into The Fire’, this one gives you a hint at the full spectrum of ‘Follow Me; Kill!‘.”

For another preview of Follow Me: Kill!, the previous single “Pressure” can be heard at: metalblade.com/cripper – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:

–Digipak CD (EU exclusive)
–CD
–180g black vinyl (EU exclusive)
–yellow orange vinyl (limited to 200 copies)
–cool grey marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 100 copies)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

Follow Me: Kill! is Cripper‘s fifth album, and it adds fresh, exciting elements into their music. Still, the band never forgets where they come from and stay true to themselves within the frames of musical progression. The result is an effort that maintains the heaviness and groove the band is known for, while also containing atmospheric parts, capably realized and granting diversity.

Follow Me: Kill! track-listing:
1. Pressure
2. Into The Fire
3. World Coming Down (limited Digipak CD only)
4. Mother
5. Shoot or Get Shot
6. Bleeding Red
7. Comatose
