Wormholedeath Re-Signs Selfmachine, Band Set To Enter Studio

Wormholedeath is proud to announce that Dutch modern metal act Selfmachine has re-signed with the label. The band is ready to enter RealSound Studio (Parma) to record their sophomore album and follow up to the 2014 debut “Broadcast Your Identity.”

The band commented: “We are proud to announce that Selfmachine has re-signed with Wormholedeath Records to release our sophomore album. Two years ago, when we signed to Wormholedeath to distribute our first album, all we expected them to do was get our record out into the world and maybe send a press release or two. However, what we got was a whole lot more.

“Over the last two years, Wormholedeath has continuously supported Selfmachine in any way they could. We could always turn to them for advice and they would give it to us honestly and directly,… even if it that advice might not have been what we wanted to hear! We have also seen Wormholedeath grow and expand their business and the passion they put into their work.
In short, the last two years have been great, so when they came to us with the offer to work together on our next album, the decision wasn’t hard to make. Over the last couple of months we have already seen their invaluable input in fine-tuning the songs for Selfmachine’s next album. We are really excited to continue and expand our cooperation with Wormholedeath and we can’t wait to get into the studio to record this album. Y’all better brace yourselves,… this one is going to be a blast!”

Violence In Ascension Signs With Unable Records

Violence In Ascension just issued the following announcement about working on a new album and signing with Unable Records:

“2015 has been a year of preparing the new album by writing the tracks as well as the lyrics. Equally we did not fall short of traveling and playing shows both locally and up and down I-95 with some terrific bands. With any band, we made some business changes along the way for what we felt was in the best interests of the project. There are several things still being worked out administratively for us and we will release that moving forward.

“Regarding Unable Records, we are extremely excited to be working with them and have laid out some recording dates to get started. So for 2016, we kick off a show Jan 1 at Bar XIII and in studio Jan 2 at 0x1 Sound Studio in Cherry Hill. Other dates are also secured. We cant express enough our gratitude for Unable Music Group and our fans who continue to believe in us. We have many things to share in 2016 and hope to see you all.”

Unable Records also issued this press release: “In the ultimate case of saving-the-best-for-last, Unable Records has rocked the American metal scene on the final day of the year. Violence in Ascension, the veteran metal band also known as VIA, has just inked a one album deal with Unable Records, a division of the Unable Music Group. The agreement calls for a full-length album, likely consisting of 10 brand new original songs, to be released later in 2016.

“VIA, who recently adopted their long-form name Violence in Ascension, are a well established staple in the East Coast metal scene. Since early 2012, VIA has released both an EP and a full-length album; the latter (From the Ashes – 2014) while signed to the North Carolina heavy metal label Dark Harvest Records. During that time the band has played a relentless show schedule, hitting stages from South Carolina to New York And as far west as Ohio, where they played the main stage for fans at Cleveland’s famed Rockapalooza. VIA has shared the stage with notable bands such as Texas in July, Attack! Attack! and The Devil Wears Prada.

“For the crew at Unable Records, VIA represents a breath of fresh air; a band that not only packs an unbelievable amount of raw talent, but backs it up with unmatched dedication and persistence. They are the definition of what it means to never give up, and Unable Records is proud to now call them part of the family. The new album, and the extensive tour schedule that will undoubtedly follow, will embody that heart, that dedication, that character. Metal fans should expect nothing short of a masterpiece – a masterpiece that exudes energy, confidence, charisma and attitude.

“If speed is any indication of the excitement behind this project, Unable Records and VIA must be through the roof. Fans won’t have long to wait for results, as the band’s tracking sessions have already been booked – for January 2016! The album will be recorded, mixed and produced by the well known engineer/producer Jason Ruch, at Unable Music Group’s 0x1 Sound Studio in Cherry Hill, NJ. Mastering will be performed by James Forbes (Metal Blade, Roadrunner, Warner Bros., Sony) of Vortex Music Productions in Clearwater, FL. The album will be released, distributed and promoted worldwide by Unable Records, in both digital and CD formats. Metal fans the world over are about to learn about struggle, sacrifice and perseverance – about Violence in Ascension. In mid-2016, VIA will ascend.”

Tales Of The Tomb Releasing Debut EP “Volume One: Morpras”

Canadian death metal band Tales Of The Tomb will release debut EP “Volume One: Morpras” on November 27, 2015. Tales Of The Tomb is a three-headed vocal attack layered with grinding blast beats, injected with Cerberus-esque barks and finished with shrill and raspy vocals – a sound straight from hell. Drummer John Thomson comments:

“Out of the gates we have just under a year have played over a half dozen shows and recorded our debut 3-song EP entitled ‘Morpras.’ The name is old English for ‘secret killing of a person, unlawful killing.’ The EP is a compilation of serial killer themed music not celebrating but elaborating on the heinous crimes committed by infamous murderers. It is old school death metal with its blending of melody and groove, gives ‘Morpras’ its unique sound.

“The first track ‘Snowtown’ will ease you into this murderous journey with a heavy groove and plenty of vocals. ‘Pig Farmer,’ the 2nd song on the EP is as fast and brutal as the slaying of Robert Pickton; the song is also accompanied with our lyrical video which will be available on Youtube. ‘Dr. Death’ also makes an appearance as the final track, a chilling slower tempo song that depicts the heinous crimes of Harold Shipman.”

This concept album about murder was recorded by Greg Wright at Hillbilly Wizard Sound Studio, and mixed/mastered by Euro-death metal master Dan Swano (ex-Bloodbath, Unisound) and is just the first of many more sonic crimes to come from Tales Of The Tomb.
