Sins Of The Damned Posts New Song “Take The Weapons” Online

Shadow Kingdom Records has set May 3rd as the international release date for Sins Of The Damned’s debut album, Striking The Bell Of Death, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

Formed in 2013 in the city of Santiago, Sins Of The Damned have become a cult institution in their homeland of Chile, itself a hotbed of heavy metal mania. The band self-released their first couple of demos, totally DIY but 100% professional, and prodigiously perfected their craft with subsequent short-length releases every year since. And now, at last arrives the full distillation of Sins Of The Damned’s eternal, unyielding aesthetic: the full-length Striking The Bell Of Death!

For a debut album, Striking The Bell Of Death does everything it should: consolidate all of Sins Of The Damned’s strengths, unveil previously hinted-at elements, and deliver them in a powerful production. The beauty (or is that ugliness?) of Sins Of The Damned is that the quartet maintain such a classic sound, drinking deeply of metal’s rich history, and yet exude a freshness of approach that results in something legitimately, respectably modern. Striking The Bell Of Death is full, furious proof of that, exhibiting absolutely masterful songwriting – hooks, energy, and passion – while roughening it up in a manner almost blackened (but not too much!). As such, the record comes highly recommended to maniacs of classic Razor, Whiplash, Exciter, and Deathrow (Germany) as well as current torchbearers like Desaster, Gospel Of The Horns, Deathhammer, and Italy’s Barbarian.

Hark! Do you hear that sound? It’s Sins Of The Damned – Striking The Bell Of Death. The first tolling bell of doom can be heard with the new track “Take The Weapons”.

Cleanteeth To Release Debut LP In 2013

Be prepared to have your face peeled back by Brooklyn-based quintet Cleanteeth: a collective of veteran musicians with previous attachments to notable acts Destructo Swarmbots, Hull, and more, as well as current members of Goes Cube and White Widows.

Cleanteeth recently recorded a debut LP, which will be released in early 2013 on a label to be confirmed in the near future. In the meantime check out newly acquired live footage of the unit destroying Saint Vitus Bar as direct support for Eyehategod at the end of November via Metal Injection. The following press release was also issued about the band:

“Formed in early 2008 as an experimental noise project, Cleanteeth has since evolved into a crushing array of loud rock, doom metal and electronic noise, influenced by the likes of Karp, Butthole Surfers, Godflesh and My Bloody Valentine, yet with a crushing, sinister, post-hardcore edge fans of Kiss It Goodbye, Breach and Will Haven can get down with. Following a three-song demo recorded with Brendan Tobin (Made Out Of Babies, Red Sparowes) on Halloween of 2009, the outfit’s underwent several personnel expansions, the current lineup just one member short of a six-pack now complete.

“Now, bringing forth their triple-guitarist attack boasting more full-stacks than band members, Cleanteeth takes a wall-of-sound approach to creating its own bastard blend of thunderous riffage. With this ruthless faction continually raiding clubs throughout the NYC area and beyond, the band has shared beer-soaked stages with Eyehategod, Kylesa, Priestess, Saviours, Harvey Milk, All Pigs Must Die, Narrows, Trap Them and many others, and will continue to bleed ears dry as new gigs are being devised for the coming months and through 2013.”

Cleanteeth consists of:

James O’Brien – Guitar
John McKinney – Guitar and throat
Pete Ross – Guitar and throat
Drew Mack – Bass and throat
Kenny Appell – Drums and beard
