The Devil & The Sea
One record that I gave alot of spins in 2008, but didnt make my year end faves was The Devil & The Sea‘s Heart vs Spine (pick that up here). The band is gearing up to tour the Northeast and have added a date at The Charleston on Mar 31st with another band that has been ringing my ears lately, Music Hates You. Full tour dates are below.
Justin K Broadrick dropped a MEGA-update on all of his projects, including Jesu, GreyMachine (with Aaron Turner), White Static Demon, Solaris BC and his many many remix projects. On the Jesu front, look for TWO live LPs, Opiate Sun EP in July, Infinity in June, Heart Ache reissue with a bonus Unreleased EP from 2003, and a reissue of the ENVY/jesu with an “Unconfirmed Bonus Mix”. Check out the full update here.
Grief have called it quits… again. Sob. Their appearance at Maryland Deathfest has been cancelled as well. In honor of the fallen, Kill That Cat posted a video from a show before they kicked the bucket for the first time. Check that out below.
That video, and news on Atheist, Craft, Obscura, Municipal Waste, and soooo much more as The Week In Metal continues!…
The mighty Anaal Nathrakh have signed with Candlelight Recordings… Congrats guys! The duo is currently in the studio recording their new album In The Constellation Of The Black Widow (!!!), the follow-up to 2007’s Hell is Empty and All the Devils Are Here – which dropped on Mick Kenney (of AN) & Shane Embury’s (Napalm Death) label FETO Records.

An Interview with Amenra
Dark Castle are hitting the road in the month of March, no dates in NYC though. Check out their schedule below. Dark Castle was recently featured on Return To Zero, Scott Kelly’s radio show on Combat Music Radio. Download that here. Scott Hull mastered the new Dark Castle.. check out an interview with him here.
Ghostlimb have announced a new 10″ split with Fischer due on their own label Vitriol records. The new 10″ will contain 13 tracks, six of which belong to the Graf Orlock offshoot. Speaking of Graf Orlock, look for the Destination Time Today on Level Plane at the end of this month, with Vitriol doing the North American vinyl.
Municipal Waste are wasting the studio! The Richmand crew has begun tracking their new album, Massive Aggressive, expecting to sew it up in the next few weeks before heading out on the road with Lamb of God. Massive Aggressive is tentatively scheduled for an August 2009 release. Speaking of their tour with Lamb of God, the previously announced Lamb of God show in Asbury Park has been cancelled.

The Ajna Offensive released a split 7″ with Antaeus and Katharsis, as well as the the 2LP version of Averse Sefira‘s Advent Parallax. Also available at Ajna, the just released issue of Oaken Throne zine, #6.
Coalesce have completed work on their new album, Ox, their first album in ten years. Look for the record on June 9th via Relapse Records. In other Coalesce news, in a post called “good news, bad news”, the band simultaneously announced a European tour and cancelled their SXSW appearance. More like meh news, bad news… USA! USA!
Hero Destroyed -“Cause For Cancer”
Antigama – “Disconnected”Decapitated is soldiering on: “I was thinking about that for a long time and it’s really hard decision for me, but I have decided to continue this band and keep Decapitated alive. I know it will be not the same anymore but I want to try and I’m sure Witek and Covan will support me and will be happy about that… So I want to say that if anybody from drummers and vocalists feel that they can continue what Witek and Covan did and put all power, energy and live time for this band, contact me – firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Arsis has dropped off of the previously mentioned Carcass tour, and drummer David Kinkade offered the following commentary:
“I regret to inform everyone that Arsis will NOT be on the Carcass tour scheduled to kick off in Philadelphia on the 13th of March. This is due to situations in Arsis that are out of my hands… There are major personal and communication issues in this band that need be resolved before anything can continue as Arsis. Due to the situation, I am available for session/possible long-term drum work nationally and internationally.”
