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), their latest album, 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.”

Skull Pit (feat. Mem of Exumer and Tatsu of Church Of Misery) releases new single, “Marauders”

– October 24th, 2018 –

On November 16th, Metal Blade Records will finally release Skull Pit, the debut album by American/Japanese collaboration Skull Pit!

Skull Pit is a tale of two musicians from opposite sides of the heavy metal spectrum and the planet: Tatsu, hailing from Tokyo/Japan, is the bassist and mastermind behind the internationally acclaimed doom outfit Church Of Misery; Mem, from New York/USA, is the singer and front-man of German thrash pioneers Exumer!

For a preview of Skull Pit, the new single, “Marauders”, can be heard at: youtu.be/MGSZTBYsjHc

Skull Pit vocalist Mem comments: “Think about the first time you heard ‘Ace Of Spades’, or the ferocity of early Tank records, and how you felt when those songs hit you like a ton of bricks. That’s what we went for when we wrote that song. Marauding for your ears, hearts and soul.”

To hear the previous single, “Fire Breather”, please visit: metalblade.com/skullpit – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:

–ltd. Digipak-CD
–180 g black vinyl
–silver/black marbled vinyl (ltd. 200 – EU-exclusive)
–red/black marbled vinyl (ltd. 200 – EU-exclusive)
–gold/black splattered vinyl (ltd. 100 – EU-exclusive)
–gold/silver splattered vinyl (ltd. 100 – US-exclusive)

The two veterans endeavored to combine their favorite elements of bands like Motorhead along with the countless outfits of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal into one blistering and highly energetic nine-track album. The songs on Skull Pit‘s debut are a clear departure from what Exumer or Church Of Misery usually sound like. Stepping away from Exumer‘s lighting fast rhythms and Church of Misery‘s slowed down, Iommi-inspired riffs, Skull Pit creates melodies in the vein of 70s hard rock and 80s NWOBHM with Lemmy’s punk attitude.

Mixed in Tokyo by O-mi Kihara, Skull Pit was recorded in New York and Japan during Exumer‘s and Church of Misery‘s time off from playing live around the globe. The result is a free-flowing album that switches effortlessly between genres and boundaries, but always with the intent to deliver a razor sharp riff or a memorable hook.

Skull Pit didn’t shy away from further expanding their all-inclusive attitude when it came to choosing and recording a cover song as a bonus track: Rose Tattoo‘s “All the Lessons”. The song features Brian “Mitts” Daniels (ex-Madball), who produced Mem’s vocal tracks in New York.

Skull Pit track-listing
1. Double Cross
2. Roller
3. Fire Breather
4. Year Of The Dog
5. Soul Raiders
6. Blood Titan
7. Marauders
8. The Line

#2 Independent Albums (USA)
#3 Hard Music Albums (USA)
#8 Rock Albums (USA)
#16 Digital Albums (USA)
#19 Top 200 Current Albums (USA)
#16 Top 200 (Canada)

#42 Top Albums (UK)
#46 Top Albums (Czech Republic)
#47 Top Vinyl (Belgium)
#73 Top Albums (Italy)
#106 Top Albums (Netherlands)

I Loved You At Your Darkest is a crushing salvo of black metal majesty replete with hellish riffs, thundering drum cannonades and soaring liturgical choirs reminiscent of classic horror cinema. The group’s most dynamic record yet, the album is extreme and radical on one hand, but also more rock-oriented than any other Behemoth release. Produced by the band themselves, with drum co-production by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, In Flames), mixing by Matt Hyde (Slayer, Children Of Bodom) mastering by Tom Baker (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson), and a 17-piece Polish orchestra arranged by Jan Stoklosa, I Loved You At Your Darkest can be previewed and purchased now at: metalblade.com/behemoth

Behemoth and Kings County Brewers Collective (Brooklyn, NY) recently announced that they have joined forces for a Double IPA, “Wolf ov Siberia”! From the most blasphemous depths of extreme metal comes a collaboration brew of epic proportions: “Wolf ov Siberia” pours pale gold in the glass, with a light lupulin haze. A blistering blast of bright lemon and crushed lime greets your nose, followed by grapefruit, melon and green pine from a megaload of Citra, Motueka and Centennial hops. Balanced by soft wheat and flaked rye, with a touch of savage bitterness on the finish, it’s fierce, fresh, and dangerously drinkable at a 7.7% ABV. “Wolf ov Siberia” beckons all Behemoth and beer fans – “come all ye wolves ov Siberia, we hail the flame, we hail the ice…”

Krokus Announces “Adios Amigos” Farewell Tour

Swiss heavy metal legends Krokus has announced that they will be embarking on a headlining world tour, dubbed “Adios Amigos.” The band has stressed that they will not be reuniting once the tour is done and have posted the following statement:

“Since 1975, Krokus stands for honest, handmade, quality power rock. No other Swiss Rock Band sells their albums and their back catalogue worldwide like Krokus. More than 15 million records sold, worldwide tours, gold and platinum in the US and Canada. Our Rock milestones can still be found today all across the globe from Australia to the USA, Mexico, Russia, even Japan and China. Krokus video clips are viewed millions of times on YouTube.

“In 1980, the triumphal march began throughout America, Canada and England. The band cemented their reputation and name as a strong, no-frills live band. Unforgettable headlining tours and on the same bills with great bands like AC / DC, Van Halen, Rush, Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, Motörhead, just to name a few. Wild times, big adventures, which brought the band, among other things, the honorary citizenship of Memphis Tennessee. Krokus were also the first Swiss band to sell-out the Hallenstadion, Zurich in 1982.

“But there was also death, illness and internal disputes that drove the band to the brink of destruction. Then, in 2008 the big comeback. The story of Krokus is unique. Marked by ups and downs. From grandiose stadium concerts to sweaty club gigs. We overcame trends, insidious US managers, harsh splits, bad deals, shady lawyers, drugs, lousy fast food, endless bus trips, disco, grunge, grotesque record companies, and hypocritical advisors.

“During our remarkable career, Krokus rocked more than 2000 shows on five continents – different cities, unique locations, crazy gigs and loyal fans. This long journey ends with our Adios Amigo Tour.

“Krokus shows have always been special and should stay that way. That’s why we decided to stop when it’s still really good. That’s how the fans should remember us. Unlike other bands that are on their eternal ‘farewell tour’, we will keep our word and pull the plug at the end of 2019, handing over the Rock Magic Wand to the youngsters.”

In addition, the band members have issued personal statements.

Marc Storace: “We look forward to a grandiose 2019 Adios Amigos World Tour with the final highlight in Switzerland.”

Fernando von Arb: “We have signed reciprocally contracts with each other that it really is over. We will stick to that. Every party has to end eventually.”

Chris von Rohr: “It was an unparalleled journey with all the ups and downs rock life has to offer. Now we are looking forward to the final lap of honor and will give it our all once more. We owe that to ourselves and our fans. The 7th of December, 2019 will be unforgettable as it was on the 27th of March 1982. “

Monte Pittman releases two new albums, ‘Better or Worse’ and ‘Between the Space’, today via Metal Blade Records

– August 31st, 2018 –

Set to kick off USA tour with Sebastian Bach next month

There are great guitarists, great vocalists and great songwriters, but Monte Pittman is one of the elite few who can truly lay claim to all three titles – and today, he once again raises the stakes with two new solo albums: Better Or Worse and Between The Space. Monte comments:

“The album ‘Between The Space‘ is a heavy album that gets straight to the point as soon as it starts. The theme is about connection, alignment, and what divides those things. As always when I write, my goal is coming up with the material that fits in my live show. I did everything on these albums. I wrote it all, I played every instrument, I recorded it, and I mixed it. The only thing I didn’t do was the artwork (by Aaron Lea) and mastering (by Alan Douches). It was a challenge having so many tasks. It was a luxury being able to take the time and get everything just how I wanted it. It was a learning experience, and it was a lot of fun making it.

The album ‘Better Or Worse‘ is an acoustic album but it feels like a heavy album. The theme is about being attached to something or being unattached. It could be an idea or a thought process. The softest part of the album has the heaviest lyrics. It builds instrumentally as the album progresses. I wanted the tone of each track to be a little different from each other. ‘Better Or Worse‘ and ‘Between The Space‘ both mirror each other and they are polar opposites. The idea is to have something there for the people who like my heavy music, something for the people who like my acoustic music, and something for the people who like the variety of both.”

For a preview of both albums, please visit: metalblade.com/montepittman – where the singles “Depth Perception” (from Better Or Worse) and “Evidence” (from Between The Space) can be streamed, and the records can be purchased on CD.

“‘Evidence’ is the opening track off ‘Between The Space,’” Monte adds. “This is a great introduction to the album. It has a little bit of everything I’ve done up until now and taken it a few steps further. ‘Depth Perception’ is also the opening track off ‘Better Or Worse‘. I wanted this album, and especially this song in particular, to be acoustic but feel like a heavy album.”

Between The Space track-listing
1. Evidence
2. Ominous / Hope
3. Changing of the Guard
4. Between the Space
5. Once Upon a Time
6. Equal Temperament
7. Reverse Magnetism

English NWOBHM legends Satan release new single, “Death Knell for a King”

– August 30th, 2018 –

Artwork by Eliran Kantor (Testament, Iced Earth, Sodom)

On September 7th, Metal Blade Records will release Cruel Magic, the new studio album by English NWOBHM legends Satan! For a preview of Cruel Magic, head over to: youtube.com/watch?v=2CcdlxBPyYk to stream the third single, “Death Knell For A King”!

For another preview of Cruel Magic, please visit: metalblade.com/satan – where you can watch the videos for the first two singles, “The Doomsday Clock” and “Into The Mouth Of Eternity”, plus pre-order the album in the following formats:


–ltd. Boxset (incl. Digipak-CD, excl. bonus-CD, excl. dead gold-marbled vinyl w/excl. bonus-LP, 75×75 cm flag, circular 12″ back patch, five A4 art prints, A4 photo card, numbered certificate)
–Digipak-CD (EU exclusive)
–CD
–180g black vinyl
–clear vinyl (limited to 500 copies – EU exclusive)
–red/black-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – EU exclusive)
–water blue-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–steel grey-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – US exclusive)
–yellow/ochre-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – US exclusive)

Bearers of the NWOBHM movement and responsible for ’83′s seminal Court In the Act and ’87′s Suspended Sentence, Satan make it abundantly clear with their upcoming new album that in 2018, they are not interested in simply capitalizing on past glories. Comprised of 10 tracks of searing metal, it is blatantly and profoundly the work of the Newcastle upon Tyne natives at their very best, infusing their signature sound with a more raw, wild and spontaneous vibe than they showcased on 2015′s mighty Atom By Atom – and in the process, displaying more passion and energy than slews of bands half their age.

Tracking the album at First Avenue Studio, they further demonstrated their trust and rapport with past collaborators, recruiting engineer Dave Curle and Dario Mollo to handle the mix, letting them handle the technical side of things so the quintet could focus all of their energies on giving the best performances. Confident in the songs they had written and how they wanted them to sound made the process a very easy one, walking out of the studio with a record of which they are understandably proud, and will reign supreme in the speakers and headphones of metalheads the world over when it drops in September. “We truly feel we’ve got it 100% right this time, the balance between considered content and reckless performance. We always break loose on stage so why not on record?”

Cruel Magic track-listing:
1. Into The Mouth Of Eternity
2. Cruel Magic
3. The Doomsday Clock
4. Legions Hellbound
5. Ophidian
6. My Prophetic Soul
7. Death Knell For A King
8. Who Among Us
9. Ghosts Of Monongah
10. Mortality
