Broken Cross Completes Second LP “Militant Misanthrope” For Early 2018 Release

Swedish-based apocalyptic metal/hardcore outfit Broken Cross has completed its second LP, titled Militant Misanthrope, which is being finalized for release in February.

Following the path of the material found on the outfit’s recently-issued split 7″ with V.E.G.A.S., Broken Cross delivers its most searing material yet with Militant Misanthrope. The sound tone and quality of the new LP yields a heavily enriched sound which bears a vast difference to the earlier lo-fi recordings, with blazing elements of thrash metal heritage seeping its way into the boldly-produced album’s nine new anthems. Recorded at Studio Underjord in Norrköping, Sweden (Vanhelgd, Year Of The Goat, Griftegård), and mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust), Militant Misanthrope is completed with drawings inspired by the 1980s/90s anime style and werewolf folklore, created by Dwid Hellion (Integrity).

Militant Misanthrope will see release on February 2nd, on LP with Apocalyptic Visions, on cassette via Judas Chair Collective, and on CD through Psychic Rebellion. Stand by for audio samples, preorders, and more info on the album in the weeks ahead.

Militant Misanthrope Track Listing:

1. Vocationem
2. C.O.T.E.
3. Devil’s Daughters Dance
4. The Isolation Cult
5. Militant Misanthrope
6. Into The Otherworld
7. Sacred Sacrifice
8. Wind Assassin
9. The Mouth Beyond

Following the release of Militant Misanthrope, Broken Cross will perform its first live show ever at the Judas Chair Collective Festival 2018 in Helsinki, Finland March 16th through 18th, joining the likes of Circling The Drain, Remissions, Hail Conjurer, Sick World, Slave Hands, Dredged, Long Gone, Usko, Corroder, and more.

Broken Cross Live:
3/16-18/2018 Oranssi Ry – Helsinki, FI @ Judas Chair Collective Festival

The brainchild of one Niklas Holm, also the creator of death metal outfit Extermination Temple, Broken Cross has issued a wealth of singles and EPs since 2011, but it was the 2015-released Through Light To Night debut LP which saw the outfit’s tentacles writhe into the masses, surging with heavy inspiration from dark hardcore and punk influences, citing the likes of G.I.S.M. and Integrity.

Now Angra fans around the globe can have the chance to hear the Angra anthems performed by the original singer in an emotional and nostalgic experience that will bring back the good feelings from the golden years! I plan to perform first in South America and from there reach fans across USA, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia.” says Falaschi.

In 2016, Falaschi released both his solo album “Moonlight” and “E.V.O”, the 5th studio album from ALMAH via Test Your Metal Records.

Bloodshot Dawn UK/Ireland Tour Announced – To Release “Reanimation” January 2018

Earlier this year Bloodshot Dawn had entered the studio to begin work on their third full length album, entitled Renanimation; an album that also features prominent guests including Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy, Nevermore), Paul Wardingham, Ken Sorceron (Abigail Williams, The Faceless), Mendel Bij De Leij (Aborted).

Since their acclaimed self-titled and second album Demons, there has been shifts in the bands ranks making way for new members, Canadian shredder Morgan Reid, drummer James Stewart (also of Vader and Divine Chaos) and bass player Giacomo Gastaldi. Frontman and last founding member Josh McMorran reflects on the losing all members from the Demons line up as a huge shock to the system, “I had to take sometime to think about how to move forward with the bands sound and honestly thinking wasn’t what was needed. When Morgan joined the band he worked tirelessly on riffs and ideas for songs which I sculptured into my design and feel for how I thought the album should flow. We met up over a two week period and turned hundreds of ideas into ten tracks very naturally. The general feeling is that we now for the first time have a solid direction and process, we work as a unit instead of separate solo efforts within the band.”

“We recorded guitars and drums in the east of Germany and Czech simply because that’s where Morgan and James are based. The studio in Czech, Babylon Studios, had an incredible drum room which was a huge selling point to this studio. We recorded guitars at Morgans home studio, which follows a similar process to our previous records. After that we headed for Sweden to work with Per Nilsson (Scar Symmetry) for final guitar pieces, additional layers, mixing and mastering. Per is a good friend and an extraordinary musician and his ear and eye for the big picture has helped us create Reanimation and pushed us to evolve our sound in a very natural way.”

“As for the stories within the album, a lot of it is ambiguous, regarding personal struggles, as well as observations on modern day society. But as with all Bloodshot Dawn records the lyrics aren’t always as clear cut and it’s the sci-fi artwork that really tells the cover story so to speak. We worked with a good friend Chris Kewli who is a concept artist with an incredibly creative mind. The artwork is the third part of a trilogy of art continuing and finishing the concept that started with the first two Bloodshot Dawn albums. The front cover pictures an alien approaching a war torn earth who’s coming to clean up the planet of human life and refresh the earth back to its former glory! The art unfolds further through the inlays of the CD.”

As well as the news of an imminent new release the band will be on tour throughout UK/Ireland tour, their first in almost 2 years!

Many words come to mind when you hear the name Cannibal Corpse, but one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), Red Before Black serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it very clear who sets the standard when it comes to always compelling music that is equally brutal and complex. Moreover, the band have pushed themselves again, ensuring that it stands out from their catalog. “Throughout our career we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. ‘Red Before Black‘ continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently,” asserts bassist Alex Webster. “We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums,” adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the most raw sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest and catchiest record.”

In support of Red Before Black, Cannibal Corpse will head out on a USA tour tomorrow with Power Trip and Gatecreeper, before heading overseas in early 2018 for a European trek with The Black Dahlia Murder, No Return, and In Arkadia. See below for all dates.
