Cut Up launches title track for new album, ‘Wherever They May Rot’

– March 20th, 2017 –

This Friday (March 24th), Cut Up will release their highly anticipated sophomore album, Wherever They May Rot, worldwide via Metal Blade Records! Just as brutal as its predecessor, 2015′s Forensic Nightmares, Wherever They May Rot offers a rougher edge and is catchier overall. For a preview of the album, the title track can be heard at: youtube.com/watch?v=dMcmsXZX1v8

Let the Swedes unscrew your head at: metalblade.com/cutup, where you can listen to the previous singles, “From Ear To Ear” and “Vermin Funeral”, and pre-order Wherever They May Rot (featuring artwork by Lukasz Jaszak) in the following formats:
–Digipak CD (EU)/Jewelcase (US)
–180g black vinyl (EU exclusive)
–olive green-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – EU exclusive)
–brass colored vinyl (limited to 100 copies – EMP exclusive)
–green/black-marbled vinyl (limited to 100 copies – USA exclusive)
*exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

With an impressive collective past in the extreme side of metal and the ambition to blaze the trail of musical violence, Cut Up has come to claim the throne. Combining grinding death metal with a modern approach and high musicianship, yet always with key focus on brutality, these Swedes are notorious for bringing the gore wherever they go. With their new album, Wherever They May Rot, Cut Up has reached a whole new level of brutality. Guitarist/vocalist Andreas Bjornson comments: “‘Wherever They May Rot‘ is an utter bloodbath from start to finish. We have managed to push the savagery even further than before, also broadening our sound without compromising one inch of aggression. Everyone has performed at the top of their game and the new songs are without a doubt the strongest we’ve ever created, reaching new heights in both speed and heaviness. We have sharpened our blades and the thirst for blood is unquenchable. The year of 2017 belongs to Cut Up!”

Whitechapel Releases “Bring Me Home” Music Video

After recently completing a co-headlining USA trek with Suicide Silence, Whitechapel is now ready to fly over to Europe to kick-off the Impericon “Never Say Die!” 2016 tour, which will see the band headline a 3-week-plus-run through 13 countries.

With just one week until the first show, Whitechapel is now premiering a new video for “Bring Me Home.” Front-man Phil Bozeman comments:

“This video means more to me than any video we’ve ever done. It portrays my struggle through dealing with my dad’s death at the age of 10. The shots of me show me at my darkest moments. Suicidal thoughts, suicide note and feeling alone. The atmosphere of the room we shot this is nailed exactly how I was feeling at the time. Dark, depressed and suicidal.

“The shots of the man and young boy portray my bond I had with my dad and how devastated I was when he left. They are presented to be in a dream like state of me remembering him. The last shot is from my dad and mom’s actual gravesite. It’s really awesome to have that authenticity to the video. The final scene is showing that I came out of it alive but no matter what, I will push forward and not give up.”

Regarding the upcoming European tour, guitarist Alex Wade adds: “We are excited to return to Europe shortly with our new record and headline ‘Never Say Die!’ 2016. We love Impericon and the ‘Never Say Die!’ Tour, so we’ve been looking forward to this since it was offered to us. The line-up is solid and heavy so don’t miss this tour!”

Rivers of Nihil will be touring in support of 2015′s Monarchy, which was hailed as “the gold standard for extreme, technical, progressive, and passionate death metal right now” (HeavyBlogIsHeavy.com). Monarchy continues the seasonal concept that began with spring on Rivers of Nihil‘s debut, The Conscious Seed of Light – this time, welcoming the oppressive summer heat. Adam Biggs, who also serves as the band’s primary lyricist, explains: “The Earth has been transformed into a vast desert wasteland, where after aeons of lifelessness, new beings begin to take shape and begin their journey as shepherds of the planet. But after a while, a class system forms from a sun-worshiping religious dictatorship, and these beings start to lose their way. Only the guidance of an ancient earthly force can help them save themselves as well the planet.”

Lyric Video For New Song “Wishing Well” Released By Theocracy

Athens, Georgia based melodic metal band Theocracy just released a lyric video for the track “Wishing Well” from the highly anticipated new album “Ghost Ship.” Check it out in the player below. The album will be released on October 28th in Europe and North America through Ulterium Records.

“Ghost Ship” will be available on CD, 2LP and digital. The 2LP edition is strictly limited to 1001 copies worldwide. 750 copies comes with black vinyl discs and 251 copies comes with white vinyl discs.

With “Ghost Ship,” Theocracy perfects the lively and fully-realized sound of “As the World Bleeds,” delivering 10 muscular and streamlined tracks that never lose focus and combine for one memorable journey. You like mid-tempo singalong anthems? Try the “Ghost Ship” title track. Thrashy rhythms and intensity? “The Wonder of It All” should be to your liking. Emotional ballads with huge melodic hooks? Go “Around the World and Back.” Or if you prefer epic, progressive tracks that do all these things and more, 10-minute album closer “Easter” is sure to be a favorite. Each song on “Ghost Ship” stands alone and has a unique signature, but every moment sounds unmistakably like Theocracy.

“So many kids were coming up to us after shows and telling us their stories,” says Theocracy vocalist Matt Smith. “A lot of them were searching for purpose and a place to fit in, and having grown up as an awkward and unpopular kid myself, their words really stuck with me. I started thinking about what a band of misfits Jesus’ disciples were: fishermen, tax collectors, and people of little consequence in the eyes of the world. Sometimes the ones most people don’t see, or choose to look straight through—the ghosts of society, as it were, dead to the world—end up having the biggest impact. That’s where the title and idea for Ghost Ship came from: all the misfits, the uncool, the outcasts, there is a place where you do fit in. Although Ghost Ship is not a concept album, this is a recurring theme, particularly in the title track and ‘Castaway.’”

The track listing for “Ghost Ship” is:

1. Paper Tiger
2. Ghost Ship
3. The Wonder Of It All
4. Wishing Well
5. Around the World and Back
6. Stir the Embers
7. A Call To Arms
8. Currency In A Bankrupt World
9. Castaway
10. Easter

Check out “Wishing Well” here:

The band recently confirmed European tour dates for this coming November, as follows:

Fri 4/11 – Hall of Fame – Wetzikon, Switzerland
Sat 5/11 – Kreatief – Neckarsulm, Germany
Sun 6/11 – Exit-US – Prague, Czech Republic

Advent Of Bedlam Releases “Creatures Of Yore” Lyric Video

After releasing new single “Creatures of Yore” and joining Destroyer 666 on a face-melting Mexican tour, Advent Of Bedlam now officially premieres a lyric video for the track.

“Creatures of Yore” will not only give you the metal fix you’ve been looking for but also showcases some mysterious ancient art that’s portrayed through the band’s lyrics and music. Advent Of Bedlam also comments on recent live shows:

“As a Latin American band and because of the buzz surrounding D666 before the tour, we were really intrigued about how this experience would be. After sharing stage, hotels, van, meals and beers with them, all we can do is confirm what Mike Hamilton (Deeds of Flesh) said to us in Slovakia where we were having some backline problems when sharing stage with Exhumed, Rotten Sound and Magrudergrind: ‘This is the Underground and in the Underground bands supports bands.’ Both experiences were milestones for us and have allowed Advent of Bedlam to grow tremendously as a band.”
