Exumer launches new single, “Raptor”

– March 5th, 2019 –

On April 5th, legendary multinational thrash metallers Exumer will release their fifth full-length, Hostile Defiance, via Metal Blade Records.

Hostile Defiance is exactly what its title suggests. A 42-minute full on attack, the thrash faction hold nothing back as they unleash hell as only they can, yet with more variety and dynamics than ever before. “We wanted to sonically progress, incorporating more melodic elements in the music as well as more rhythmic variety,” states vocalist Mem Von Stein. “We are a lot braver trying to create an up to date and relevant sound that can easily stand alone in today’s thrash landscape without sounding trite or a throwback, and we’re challenging the listener not to get too comfortable with one specific feel, tempo or pace.”

For a preview of the album, the new single, “Raptor”, can be heard at: youtu.be/VbzpoipILUg

The video for the previously released track, “Hostile Defiance”, can be seen at: metalblade.com/exumer. The clip was created by renowned cover artist Costin Chioreanu (At The Gates, Voivod, etc.), who also made the album artwork and layout for Hostile Defiance.

Hostile Defiance marks Exumer‘s third time working with producer Dennis Koehne (Sodom, Melechesh).

North Hammer Premiere New Track “Magic Mead”

North Hammer is premiering the third single “Magic Mead”, a song taken from their upcoming new album “Stormcaller” set for release on March 16th, 2018.

Mainman Andrew James comments:

“‘Magic Mead takes us to the lodgings of the hero as he celebrates a glorious victory with his fellow brothers in arms over a distant tyrant king. As the militia feast and drink to their new found glory, a strange and fantastical looking woman catches his attention away from the camp. The magic mead part of it is contributed to his magical encounter with this woman as he follows her further into the night. Hallucinations start to happen and he eventually loses control of himself and passes out. This is the reason I chose to put the more blasty and dark ending to the song.”

Within The Ruins To Part Ways With Frontman Tim Goergen – Replacement Announced

Within The Ruins part ways with vocalist Tim Goergen in the light of his “recent and ongoing health issues.” The split is described as amicable with Steve Tinnon (supposedly formerly of Silence The Messenger, etc.) planned to replace him. Within The Ruins will be playing two final shows with Goergen and issued the below statement on that matter:

“Hey everyone, Joe here with some news for you all. Within the Ruins and Tim have decided to part ways due to some recent and ongoing health issues. This is a tough one for all of us, and as saddened as we are to no longer have Tim with us, a new chapter begins. Tim will be passing the torch to our good friend Steve Tinnon and we are extremely excited for the future of this band. We’d like to invite you all to Tim‘s final two shows with us.

April 19th – Brooklyn, NY at Kingsland
April 21st- Worcester, MA at New England Metal and Hardcore Fest

– Tim
Hello my friends, it is with an extremely heavy heart that I announce my departure from Within The Ruins. I want to be very clear that this split is mutual and I have nothing but love for my brothers and vise versa. I am at a point in my life that won’t allow me to tour anymore, and touring is a huge part of this band. It breaks my heart, but it is what it is. Over the last ten years I have had the absolute privilege/pleasure to tour the world and record 5 amazing releases with the most driven and talented musicians on the fucking planet.

These guys are more than just friends and bandmates, they are my brothers. Through ups and downs, lineup changes, a van flip that nearly killed us, and countless beers/good times we are bonded forever. These experiences, memories, and friends I’ve made along the way are things that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I ask that you all continue to support my guys just as you always have while I was in the band.

Thank you to our manager Scott Lee and Entertainment One / Goodfight for always having our backs and keeping our best interest in mind. Thank you to my friends, family, and my woman for supporting me while I lived out my dream. And of course I would like to thank our fans for their undying support and love. You guys kept me pushing forward the whole time.

I want to be clear that I am not done making music, so keep an eye out for projects from me in the future. I am excited for what lies ahead and am ready for this new chapter in my life.

Let’s get fucking crazy one more time!

– Steve Tinnon
I am very excited to announce that I am now singing for Within The Ruins! These guys have been great friends to me and my previous band for nearly a decade, and after two years of no longer touring or being in a band I’ve been given a second chance to do what I love again. I want to thank Tim for giving me his blessing on this moving forward. I’ve got big shoes to fill and I won’t let you down! I’m extremely honored to be part of a group of such talented musicians, and I can’t wait to start this next chapter of the band’s career. See you all soon!
