Between the Buried and Me to Release DVD / Blu Ray Next Month

Progressive powerhouse Between the Buried and Me will be releasing “Future Sequence: Live at the Fidelitorium” next month on Metal Blade Records. The September 30th release will be the band and label’s first ever blu ray release. The video will also be available on DVD and via digital retailers. “Future Sequence: Live at Fidelitorium” was recorded at Fidelitorium Recordings outside of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. In the video, fans will see Between the Buried and Me performing their more recent album “The Parallax II: Future Sequence” in its entirety. The 2012 album was rated by Guitar World Magazine as #18 on their list of top 50 albums of the year, and earned the band praise from Decibel Magazine, who claimed: “the band’s technical ability can now give the likes of Dream Theater and Opeth a run for their prog metal money.

Drummer Blake Richardson comments on the approach to recording this DVD/blu ray: “We’ve always been fans of dvds where it’s just the band, you don’t have any other distractions“. Vocalist/keyboardist Tommy Rogers explains further: “We wanted to give the fans something that made them feel a little closer to us, and made them almost feel like they’re at practice with us“. “Future Sequence: Live at the Fidelitorium” will be in stores on September 30th, 2014. A trailer is on-line now, along with pre-order bundles, at metalblade.com/btbam.

Future Sequence: Live at Fidelitorium” was directed and edited by Justin Reich, with director of photography Ismail Abdelkhalek, and audio engineers Jamie King and Kris Hilbert. Audio mixing and mastering was completed by Jamie King. Guest musicians include: Walter Fancourt (tenor saxophone, flute), Julian Hinshaw (Tuba), Will Goodyear (marimba, glockenspiel), Taya Ricker (violin), David Parks (violin), Leigh Dixon (viola), and Socrates Razo (cello).

Upon its released in 2012,”The Parallax II: Future Sequence” became the band’s highest Billboard Top 200 chart debut of their career at #22. The album was recorded during the Spring of 2012 at The Basement Studios in Winston-Salem, N.C., and was produced by the band and longtime creative partner Jamie King. It was Between The Buried And Me’s first full-length release on Metal Blade Records, preceded by “The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues,” an EP that began the story of the two characters: Prospect I and Prospect II.

REVOCATION Announce Details for Metal Blade Records Debut “Deathless”

REVOCATION have spent the last eight years converting fans to their cause with four full length albums, an EP with Scion AV, and a charismatic live show led by guitarist/vocalist Dave Davidson. The Boston-based band also features the staggeringly talented lineup of: Dan Gargiulo on guitar, Brett Bamberger on bass, and Phil Dubois on drums. REVOCATION has firmly been established as one of the genre’s finest and will continue their campaign as part of the Metal Blade Records roster. Their fifth album, “Deathless,” is a fitting debut for the label, and a definitive statement of intent from the band.
“Deathless” is set for an October 14th release, today the artwork, track listing and first single which is the title track, have been unveiled. The album will be available in CD, 2LP and digital formats. Get a first listen to the song HERE and be sure to pre-order the album.
“Deathless” was recorded with acclaimed producer Zeuss at Planet Z studios in Massachusetts. The album is ten tracks of ambitious, catchy, and undeniably heavy material. Musically, cuts like “Madness Opus” showcase a more deliberate REVOCATION – restrained, if even moderately so, to deliver a slow, near-dirge like track. Alternatively, the title track highlights the diversity of Davidson’s vocals with a catchy chorus. It’s an earworm the likes of which the band had only previously hinted. The rest of the album offers a refreshing variety of music and truly feels like an “album”, rather than a collection of similar tracks. This is a refinement, achieved only through years of focusing on their craft.
Davidson adds, “Collectively, we feel that “Deathless” is our finest offering yet. The songs are incredibly varied and each one showcases a different element of the band. Technically, everyone is in top form on this record, as well, and we really pushed ourselves to deliver the best performances possible on all fronts. This is a new chapter and a new beginning for the band; we can’t wait for this record to be unleashed in October!“
Lyrically, “Deathless” addresses life on the road and the band’s commitment to touring, followed by even more touring. “Madness Opus” made its live debut when REVOCATION toured with DevilDriver and Whitechapel during the summer of 2014. Davidson discusses the track: “The crowd response for that tune has been overwhelmingly positive. It’s one of the heaviest songs we’ve ever written, hands down, and has been a blast to play live. Lyrically, it’s about one of my favorite HP Lovecraft stories, “The Music Of Erich Zann”. Fans of unnamable cosmic horror and punishing death metal will not be disappointed!“
Revocation begins touring in support of “Deathless” in September with Crowbar in North America, followed by a full European tour with new label mates Cannibal Corpse and Aeon. Much is more is set to come – this is the beginning of a new era for Revocation.

Rivers of Nihil joins Death (DTA Tours) “Swamp Leper Stomp ’14″ Tour

This November, Pennsylvania’s Rivers of Nihil will embark on the biggest tour of their career so far! They have been added as the openers to Death (DTA Tours) “Swamp Leper Stomp ’14″ tour! Additional support will come from Obituary and Massacre. This tour will kick off on November 14th at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, and wraps up on December 7 in Miami, FL at Grand Central.
Guitarist Jon Kunz exclaims: “We’re incredibly stoked to a part of this year’s North American Death (DTA Tours)! Death are one of our biggest influences, with the incredible “Human” album being a constant source of inspiration. Throw in the nasty Tampa savagery of Obituary and Massacre, and you have the best death metal tour of the year. Long live Chuck, Florida death metal is supreme!“
Earlier this year, Rivers of Nihil released a video for “Birth of the Omnisavior,” a sleek and dark video that captures visually what this band does so well sonically: they play emboldened, deftly-executed death metal at a level far beyond their years. Watch “Birth of the Omnisavior” from their album “The Conscious Seed of Light” now at metalblade.com/riversofnihil.
Formed in 2009, the modern progressive death metal quintet’s music is as dark and heavy as the coal and iron their home city was built upon, taking influences from some of death metal’s heaviest, most abrasive hitters: Morbid Angel, Gojira, Spawn of Possession, and Decapitated, to name a few. Rivers of Nihil‘s debut album, “The Conscious Seed of Light,” was recorded in March of 2013 at Mana Recording Studios in Florida with famed metal producer/musician Erik Rutan. While “The Conscious Seed of Light” is not necessarily a concept album traditionally speaking, Rivers of Nihil began their project with the idea that they would release four separate albums tied together with one common theme: each reflecting a particular season of a year. Bassist Adam Biggs elaborates; “The Conscious Seed of Light is intended to be representative of spring and explores various themes concerning new beginnings, growth, and an attachment to the natural world in a post-human Earth. Unlike some concept records however, we wanted to allow each song to work on its own terms. Rather than have the songs rely on each other to move a specific story structure forward; they work within their own separate narratives, but ultimately serve the album’s broader concept.” Rivers of Nihil‘s lineup is rounded out by guitarists Brody Uttley and Jon Kunz, vocalist Jake Dieffenbach, and drummer Alan Balamut.

Antropomorphia armed and ready to release new album ‘Rites Ov Perversion’!

New song and pre-orders available now!
Dutch necromantic death metal act, AntropomorphiA, are ready to unleash their new album ‘Rites Of Perversion‘ upon mankind! ‘Rites Ov Perversion‘ is set for release September, 12th on CD and LP in Europe, and on CD and digitally in North America on September 16th! Click HERE to check out the cover art and to stream the first single ‘Nekrovaginal Secretions‘!
Comments AntropomorphiA: “With ‘Rites ov Perversion’ we created a more organic layered and violent album, we explored within the realm of our musical origin and its atmospheric grimness, but at the same time not limiting ourselves to the sinister beauty of other dimensions. There are songs that have a bleak mid-paced drive and songs that just have primitive skull penetrating riffs…its the definition of this band, where we stand and what we are in this point of time…behold the sway of death!“
‘Rites Of Perversion‘ is the successor to ‘Evangelivm Nekromantia‘, an album that stirred the attention around the band some more, which resulted in the band doing several performances, including festival appearances at Neurotic Deathfest and Extremefest, a.o. Because of the violent and occult nature of the topics AntropomorphiA deal with, it even drew the attention of the German authorities, almost getting the album banned completely from the shelves in this particular country.

Release Day Draws Near
As retro doom metal sorcerers, Brimstone Coven, prepare for the official unveiling of their self-titled full-length and inaugural release for Metal Blade Records, today Revolver Magazine summons forth the cosmic echoes of “Children Of The Sun.”
Spawned in Wheeling, West Virginia in 2011, Brimstone Coven manifest a captivating amalgam of dark, smoky cult rock that echoes the eerie reverberations of Black Sabbath and Pentagram, mixed with the classic rock expressions of Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, all the while preserving a vintage rock sound mixed with a style all their own. The outfit’s Metal Blade debut boasts seventeen inebriating tracks of manic occult conjurings – a combo of their self-released full-length and EP — complete with new mastering and the vintage art renderings of Creighton Hill.
In an advance review of the offering, Metal Underground relays, “Brimstone Coven should appeal to most of the occult rock set for its vintage sound and supernatural atmosphere that pervades throughout the album. The band’s use of dynamics is fantastic,” furthering that, “the band’s members have major chops and their foray into the occult is certainly alluring.” Against Magazine notes, “the dry sound can refer to Led Zeppelin, the blues soul derives directly from Black Sabbath and the solid structures scream Pentagram, but somehow Brimstone Coven manage to do it with a bit of own musical personality and self-consciousness,” while Sea Of Tranquility concurs, “this is not your typical stoner/doom release by any means. There is a psychedelic feel throughout the album that drifts between the riffs, adding the right amount of atmosphere and a somewhat spooky element that works quite well.” Adds The Obelisk, “Brimstone Coven is an album that righteously engages the tenets of classic doom. There’s an early ’70s sway to the material, a looseness in the rhythm section of bassist Andrew D’Cagna and drummer Justin Wood, that gives the chugging, grooving riffs of guitarist Corey Roth both meat and movement, and vocalist ‘Big John’ Williams meshes with this modus perfectly, the layers of his voice harmonizing and calling to mind the natural feel and melodic range of grandiose ’70s prog, working with the music surrounding to give cuts like ‘Behold, The Anunnaki,’ ‘The Black Door’ and ‘The Séance’ a mystique without sounding overblown or needlessly theatrical. It’s a careful balance and Brimstone Coven execute it well.”

There is a psychedelic feel throughout the album that drifts between the riffs, adding the right amount of atmosphere and a somewhat spooky element that works quite well.” Adds The Obelisk, “Brimstone Coven is an album that righteously engages the tenets of classic doom. There’s an early ’70s sway to the material, a looseness in the rhythm section of bassist Andrew D’Cagna and drummer Justin Wood, that gives the chugging, grooving riffs of guitarist Corey Roth both meat and movement, and vocalist ‘Big John’ Williams meshes with this modus perfectly, the layers of his voice harmonizing and calling to mind the natural feel and melodic range of grandiose ’70s prog, working with the music surrounding to give cuts like ‘Behold, The Anunnaki,’ ‘The Black Door’ and ‘The Séance’ a mystique without sounding overblown or needlessly theatrical. It’s a careful balance and Brimstone Coven execute it well.”

Swedish doom act, Below, have released a new video for “Bid You Farewell” from their critically-lauded Metal Blade Records debut album, “Across the Dark River“. The video was filmed by Emil Björkroth (www.pemil.se) and edited by Vince Edwards from Metal Blade Records. This is the band’s first ever music video and properly encapsulates the band’s bleak and melancholic doom sound – this is a way for the uninitiated to expose themselves to top-notch, classic doom! Watch the video now at:invisibleoranges.com
“The sense of sadness is palpable, the melodies infused with towering grandeur, the sheer weight of the riffs utterly crushing…” Zero Tolerance
“With a sound based on three specific albums: Nightfall (Candlemass), Headless Cross (Black Sabbath), and Conspiracy (King Diamond), they most certainly deliver on their promise of epic doom metal.”About.com
“Navigating the nebulous waters of Below’s doom brings the perfect balance of darkness, slowness, hypnotic atmosphere, strong and heavy riffs and a crushing devastation.” Metal-Rules.com
In the fall of 2011, Below was formed in Sweden by three wicked minds. After a discussion about why doom bands of today either lacked melodies or tried to sound as retro as possible, they decided to start a doom band that would pay tribute to epic and dark sound of: Nightfall by Candlemass, Headless Cross by Black Sabbath and Conspiracy by King Diamond. Below recorded their debut album in early fall of 2013 at Andy LaRocque’s (King Diamond) Sonic Train Studios. The full length was released in April 2014 through Metal Blade Records. Below offered up the following comment on recording:”To have the opportunity to work with Andy La Rocque and Olof in Sonic Train Studios is amazing. It will be a truly epic album that will leave its mark in the history of doom.“
