Soreption Forced To Pull Out Of Upcoming Suffocation Tour Due To Visa Issues

Soreption won’t be able to take part in this fall’s Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation and Krisiun tour due to Visa issues. Soreption issued the below statement:

“To our fans in North America, unfortunately the visa issues that forced us to depart Summer Slaughter early have still not resolved themselves and we are forced to step down from the upcoming Suffocation Death Chopping Tour.

We were excited to join our good friends on this tour as well as get our new music out to our fans so this is a disappointment for us. We ask our fans to support the tour and the other artists on tour including Visceral Disgorge who will be taking our place in the lineup.

Racetraitor Premiere New Song “The Cult Of Eschatology”

Racetraitor premiere a new song “The Cult Of Eschatology” from their follow-up to their 1998 effort “Burn The Idol Of The White Messiah“. That outing is titled “2042” and will be out in stores on October 12th via Good Fight Music.

Comments bassist R. Brent Decker :

“With ‘Cult of Eschatology’ we wanted to address the racist way the US talks about the high levels of violence in cities like Chicago. The entire framing of the issue and the policies that are adopted serve white supremacy. Words like ‘criminal,’ ‘offender,’ and ‘victim’ are all euphemisms to get politicians elected and shovel more money to a ‘prison and policing industrial complex.

Nothing is really about solutions, violence reduction, or real people. The criminal justice system we have is just rooted in the ideologies of punishment which destroys countless lives, decimates communities, and strengthens corporate interests. Living and working in Chicago, this is all stuff we have seen first hand and it needs to be abolished.”

Cattle Decapitation reveals details for rarities collection, ‘Medium Rarities’

– September 20th, 2018 –

Launches album track, “An Exposition of Insides” (Japanese bonus track from ‘Monolith of Inhumanity’), online

On November 23rd, Cattle Decapitation will release their new rarities collection, Medium Rarities, via Metal Blade Records. Featuring 6 previously unreleased pre-Human Jerky (1999) demos with front-man Travis Ryan on guitar (while also handling vocal duties), plus the long-sought-after To Serve Man (2002) bonus track, “Rotting Children For Remote Viewing” – in addition to other rarities (including the 6 songs from 2005′s split EP with Caninus!) – this compilation spans the band’s 22-year long career and is a must-have for any Cattle Decapitation fan.

Travis Ryan comments: “‘Medium Rarities‘ is a project we started about 10 years ago, and we’re thrilled to see it finally happen! In 2008, I started compiling unreleased tracks, import bonus tracks and 7″ releases for a rarities release – and even had the art created by the legendary Wes Benscoter, when we discovered that a key track was missing that we wanted to include on it. Our album ‘To Serve Man‘ had a bonus track ready in case there was a Japanese version released, but that never happened – and the band members’ copies of the track got lost, seemingly forever! We felt a rarities compilation released without that bonus track would be a weird idea, and so the project got shelved until recently. Heather Parsons of Metal Blade finally was able to unearth the track from an old disc that was tucked away in the Metal Blade vault! The lyrics to the song were unearthed along with it, and so we quickly got to work with compiling and mastering the rest. This is a nice, concise compilation of unreleased and hard-to-find tracks, complete with lyrics and cheeky vinyl color variant schemes, based on how people like their meat prepared. The European vinyl variants also resemble diseased meats…But my favorite part is the cassette, which was created to look like the vintage cassette releases we grew up on – complete with the old school Metal Blade axe logo! A lot of thought and work went into this release, and we are pleased to finally be able to present to you…’Medium Rarities‘!”

For a preview of Medium Rarities, “An Exposition of Insides” (a Japanese bonus track from 2012′s Monolith of Inhumanity) can be streamed now at: metalblade.com/cattledecapitation – where the collection can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:

Capsize Premiere Track & Music Video “Fragile”

Capsize premiere a new music video for their single “Fragile“. The song was produced by From First To Last‘s Matt Good.

“This song talks about being mentally exhausted and emotionally defeated by something or someone, hitting breaking points, but not being able to let go or give up on it.

Unleashed Premiere New Song “Lead Us Into War” From Upcoming New Album “The Hunt For White Christ”

Unleashed premiere a new song titled “Lead Us Into War”, taken from their upcoming new album “The Hunt For White Christ”, which will be out in stores October 26.

Check out now “Lead Us Into War” HERE.

Tells bassist/vocalist Johnny Hedlund:

“Correct. The name White Christ means Cowardly here. As opposed to “red” Thor which would be something like “brave” Thor. Now, the story of Odalheim ended on the previous album with a victorious return to Folkland shores (through lake Mälaren in present day Swedish capital Stockholm). The Midgard Warriors (led by the Son of Thor) had been taking back land by land from the armies of White Christ in most of Svithiod and the greater Nordic territory. Since most men and (armed) women were out on this task, most children, old people and unarmed women were left behind in the villages.

A smaller army of White Christ that escaped gathered up to attack and burn one of these villages. Only one person survived, (but more on that later). Children were sliced to shreds, old people and women killed, some left without genitals and eyes. As the Hammer Battalions reached the village it was all too late. And this is what you see on the album cover. The back side of the album there is a text describing this in more detail and what happens next. But as you can understand, peace is not what comes to mind…”
