Video Clip For New Song “Last Before The End” Posted By Game Over

Italian thrash metal heroes Game Over posted a video clip for the first single for the upcoming release “Claiming Supremacy,” which drops on on November 17th via Scarlet Records. Check out the music video for “Last Before the End” in the playerb elow.

Inspired by the classic Bay Area thrash metal scene of the 80’s, Game Over mixes those influences with modern sounds and a very distinctive personality. “Claiming Supremacy” is the perfect combination of the band’s furious riffing, hardcore attitude and classic metal influences, with very obscure lyrics and, of course, those anthemic choruses that fans recognize as a band trademark.

Overall the album is heavier, faster and ruthless than ever. Lyrics vary from B-movie scenarios to social-political themes, science fiction, mythology and history. The album has been mixed and mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust), who has previously worked with Midnight, SunnO))), Poison Idea, Integrityand many more. “Claiming Supremacy,” which will be released in Japan by Marquee, will also be available in a vinyl version limited to 500 copies.

The track list for the album is as follows:

1. Onward To Blackness
2. Two Steps Into The Shadows
3. Last Before The End
4. My Private Nightmare
5. Blessed Are The Heretics
6. Eleven
7. Broken Trails
8. Shattered Souls
9. Lysander
10. Show Me What You Got

Child Bite Releasing New Album “Negative Noise”

Detroit’s favorite musical misfits Child Bite will unveil brand new full-length, “Negative Noise,” this April 1st. Having released three full-lengths, as well as a gaggle of EPs and singles since the group’s formation in late 2005, the prolific collective is now well into the second phase of bandhood.

What began as a thoughtful-yet-spazzy art rock band in a Detroit suburb has now fully mutated into an aggressive, dissonant blend of all things punk, hardcore, sludge, surf, prog rock, noise rock and metal; a truly unique voice in a sea of copycats.

“Negative Noise” is forty-seven-minute throbbing ball of energy filled with furious jabs and paranoia-fueled explosions. Produced by Philip H. Anselmo and featuring artwork by vocalist Shawn Knight, “Negative Noise” is a fully-realized vision, inside and out. The album’s track listing is as follows:

1. Death Before Dementia
2. Paralytic Phantasm
3. Euphoria Saturation Point
4. Born A Hog
5. Video Blood
6. Apex Of Anxiety
7. Vermin Mentality
8. Beyond The Dirt
9. The Great Ego Flood
10. Into The Disease
11. Feed Me Septic Dreams
12. Heretic Generation

Child Bite Announces New North American Tour Dates

After a short holiday slumber, Detroit’s favorite road hounds from Child Bite will take to the streets again for another round of onstage pandemonium.

The live chaos will commence February 11th in Saginaw, Michigan and trample through eleven cities, with the trek coming to a close on February 21st again in the band’s home state in Grand Rapids. Child Bite will be joined by Against The Grain for the first three dates before uniting with Poison Idea for the remaining dates.

Comments frontman Shawn Knight: “Us Child Bite assholes have been chomping at the bit to hit the road again. Feels weird to sit still for more than a week or so. We are tickled pink to finally be doing a few out of state shows with our Detroit bros Against The Grain! Both of our bands have been hitting it hard for a while now; I’m glad we can combine forces. We met Poison Idea when we both played Berserker Fest last year, so when they asked us to do some East Coast and Canadian dates with them we responded with a resounding, ‘duh!.’ These are our first shows of the New Year and we are ready to blast off with a big kaboom!”

King Diamond To Perform Abigail Album At Housecore Horror Film Fest

This November, Philip H. Anselmo’s Housecore Horror Fest will celebrate its third year of audio and visual bedlam. Set to commence in San Antonio, Texas at the Aztec Theater (201 E Commerce St.) on November 13th -15th, 2015, the horror-themed film and metal gala promises to be louder, gorier and more bludgeoning than ever before boasting two film-screening rooms, multiple vendors, special artist signings throughout the weekend and what’s morphing into one of the most debilitating lineups of the year!

Already stacked with a crushing bill that includes Agoraphobic Nosebleed performing their second show ever, Corrosion Of Conformity featuring Pepper Keenan, Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin doing a live score of George Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead, Superjoint, Eyehategod, Nails, Crowbar, Dropdead, Autopsy, Poison Idea, and so many others, the gatekeepers of Housecore Horror Fest today welcome the additions of thrash metal icons, Exodus, veteran death metal legion, Incantation, apocalyptic hardcore punk unit, Gasmiasma, atmospheric drone doom duo, Muscle And Marrow and theatrical heavy metal legend King Diamond whose performance will feature 1987 quintessential second full-length, Abigail, in its harrowing entirety! As an added bonus, Gwar’s fabled Sleazy P. Martini will also be attending the annual gathering as a special guest!

And the awesome won’t stop there. The fest has expanded the range of its grotesqueries, with a second stage located just steps away from the Aztec Theater. The Korova, at 107 E. Martin St. in San Antonio, will play host to even MORE bands throughout the weekend. Stay tuned for additional band announcements for The Korova in the coming weeks.

Comments Anselmo: “I am beyond excited to announce that the mighty King Diamond will be attacking the house on Friday the 13th at the Housecore Horror Festival. All hail the King.”

Adds Maryland Deathfest co-founder Ryan Taylor, who’s shaping this year’s HHF lineup alongside Anselmo: “It’s been a lot of fun piecing together this lineup with Philip. It’s gonna be a wild one, so get your tickets while you still can!”
