Warbringer To Play “Waking Into Nightmares” Album In Full At 3 April Live Shows

In celebration of their 2009 album “Waking Into Nightmares” Warbringer will play a trio of special shows in April. Comments the band’s vocalist John Kevill:

“This year we will be writing new material, but that doesn’t mean the live war machine will stop rolling… in addition to our Japanese ‘Thrash Domination‘ festivals with Testament and Exodus, we are pleased to announce a small run of West coast shows in April of 2018. Since we have been playing ‘Woe to the Vanquished‘ in its entirety this last year, to great response, we decided we liked the full album format live.

It is really cool being able to deliver the whole of a record, front to back, in a live setting, and so on these limited April dates we will be doing that with a fan favorite from our back catalogue… ‘Waking into Nightmares‘.”

“We will play the full record live as both a treat for fans as well as a tribute to Nic Ritter, who passed away in 2017. That record pushed the boundaries forward for Warbringer and we look forward to punishing everyone with it live this coming April. See you in the pit.”

The live performances will take place on the following dates:

04/27 Los Angeles, CA – The Whisky
04/28 Santa Ana, CA – Malone’s
04/29 San Diego, CA – Brick By Brick

New Video Clip “Room Of Nightmares” Released By Black Label Society

Black Label Society has debuted the brand new music video for the first single from “Grimmest Hits” titled “Room Of Nightmares” which was directed by long time collaborator Justin Reich.

Black Label Society will release the tenth full length “Grimmest Hits” on January 19th via Entertainment One (eOne). The new effort will be the highly anticipated follow up to Billboard Top 5 charting titles “Catacombs of the Black Vatican” (2014) and “Order of the Black” (2010). In-between then and now, Zakk Wylde released “Book of Shadows II,” the long awaited follow up from his 1996 solo debut of the same name, which debuted at #18 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.

“Room Of Nightmares” is available on all digital service providers and streaming services today. The track is also an iTunes instant gratification track, meaning fans who pre order the album on iTunes now will receive “Room of Nightmares” as an instant download. The cover art and track listing can be seen below.

Wylde, now reunited with Ozzy Osbourne after an eight year break, has played a handful of dates with whom he refers to as “the boss,” with no signs of slowing down. The reunion kicked off over the summer with a highlighted performance at Chicago Open Air with high profile festivals like Louder Than Life and Ozzfest Meets Knotfest on deck to close out the year.

One part invading horde and all parts traveling carnival party, Black Label Society traverses the world powered by caffeine and cacophony. BLS engages and inspires audiences everywhere they go, on every radio dial they burn, inviting all comers to join in and participate in their brotherhood and sisterhood of hard rock and vigor.

Now ten studio albums deep, with solo records, Ozzy shows, and Zakk Sabbath tours all kicking ass simultaneously, Black Label Society rides ever forward, fist held high.

Former Warbringer Drummer Nic Ritter Has Died

Former Warbringer drummer Nic Ritter has died.

Shares the band’s vocalist John Kevill:

“A couple days ago we got some tragic news. Our former drummer, Nic Ritter, is dead. He passed either Wednesday or Thursday and I got the word Thursday night. I know few details of how he died. I had not seen Nic in many years, though I had spoken to him a few times fairly recently. I always will to regret that I never saw him again, and we never really caught up on all our old times traveling the world. Nic played approximately 400-450 shows with Warbringer between June 2008 through January 2011, the period where we were never off the road. His drum performance on “Waking into Nightmares” pushed the standard of technicality and musicianship in Warbringer to a new level and helped to shape the identity of the band to what it is today. He was an absolutely stellar player who in my opinion is a true innovator in thrash metal drumming. Sadly, “Waking into Nightmares” is, to the best of my knowledge, his sole recorded musical legacy. Shame that he never played on another record, at least I know he was very proud of our work on that one.
Rest easy, old buddy
–Kevill”

Nic Ritter’s cause of death was not revealed yet though his family members have referred to his death as being “unexpected” via social media.

Tombs reveals details for new album, ‘The Grand Annihilation’

– April 13th, 2017 –

Launches new single, “Cold”, online

On June 16th, Brooklyn’s Tombs will release their fourth full-length, The Grand Annihilation, via Metal Blade Records. Produced once again by Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Soilent Green, Belphegor, Hate Eternal), The Grand Annihilation remains rooted in the blackened, post-metallic sound that the band has become known for since 2007′s self-titled EP, while also being their most experimental record to-date. For a preview of the album, the first single, “Cold”, can be streamed at: metalblade.com/tombs – where The Grand Annihilation can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:

–Digipak CD
–180g black vinyl
–dark olive-marbled vinyl (limited to 400 copies – EU exclusive)
–ivory/grey-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–orange/brown-marbled vinyl (limited to 100 copies – EU exclusive)
–gray/green-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – US exclusive)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

Tombs front-man Mike Hill is not a man interested in appeasing his existing audience or modifying the music he makes in the hope of luring in a broader one. Letting the songs come as and when inspiration hits him is integral to Hill’s process, and this accounts in part for The Grand Annihilation‘s diversity. The blasting, scathing yet melodic black metal savagery of opener “Black Sun Horizon” and “Way Of The Storm” are very much built to destroy, while wielding a poignancy that is undeniable – both of which stand in strong contrast to the uncomfortable post-punk squall of “Underneath” that showcases Hill’s Nick Cave/Ian Curtis-esque singing voice, while the likes of the throbbing “Saturnalian” and unnerving tribal thunder of “Walk With Me In Nightmares” stand in categories all of their own. While every track on The Grand Annihilation stands separate from those around it, it is still a cohesive collection, and at no point do the stylistic twists and turns undermine its coherence. “If you’ve been following Tombs, you probably know to expect the unexpected, and I always strive to present a full range of emotion on everything with the band’s name on it,” Hill explains. “That said, this is a very dark and introspective record that digs deep into the common ideas of mortality, infinity and cosmic mysteries. The lyrics on the new record are a celebration of freedom through embracing the dark side. Once you realize that you follow the dark path – the path of the individual – there is a certain feeling of liberation that accompanies it.”

The Grand Annihilation track-listing
1. Black Sun Horizon
2. Cold
3. Old Wounds
4. November Wolves
5. Underneath
6. Way of the Storm
7. Shadows at the End of the World
8. Walk with Me in Nightmares
9. Saturnalian
10. Temple of Mars

– September 22nd, 2016 –

Swedish death metallers Cut Up have entered the Big Balls Productions Studio in Sweden to record the successor to their critically acclaimed debut album, Forensic Nightmares!

Drummer Tobias Gustafsson comments: “We have started the recording of our second album! Again, we have entered Big Balls Productions Studio in Karlstad/Sweden with engineer Mats Lindstrom. The majority of 2016 has been spent writing and working on the new material. The process has been very intense, which I think reflects in the music, in a very positive way. Following the direction of our debut ‘Forensic Nightmares‘, our second, yet untitled album will take things up a notch or two! Drums are already almost done, and during the next couple of weeks we will continue to shape this death metal gore bomb into its final form. The mixing and last touches will be done by no less than Dan Swano at Unisound!”

Titled “Destabilized Perception” and taken from the forthcoming EP “Perpetuated By Greed,” one man band Foul Body Autopsy has released a first full track from the impending February 26th release.

The filmmaker behind cerebral political documentaries ‘Century Of The Self’ (2002) and ‘The Power Of Nightmares’ (2005). The film and the song are about the contradictory vaudeville of post-modern politics.”

4. Destabilized Perception
