This Week In METAL (06/27/09)
by Black Bubblegum
DOWNLOAD: Saviours – “Acid Hand” (MP3)
Battlefields are hitting the road (again) this time with Overmars and TWO dates in NYC. Europa gets the bands on August 16th and The Charleston gets them on Septemeber 3rd. Full tour dates are below. Battlefields‘ massive Thresholds of Imbalance was released earlier this year while Overmars‘ Büccolision EP dropped in the tail end of last year.
Asphyx‘s Death… The Brutal Way is out now overseas, but the LP will drop on Ibex Moon in the US on September 1. Look for the LP honors to be handled by War Anthem Records and the limited edition CD to come with a DVD of their 2007 reunion show in Germany. Until then, dig on the music video for the title track below. In related news, Martin Van Drunen’s other band, Hail of Bullets, will release a limited MCD (2000 copies) entitled Warsaw Rising on July 17th.
That video, plus news on Dark Castle, Suffocation, Saviours, Gaza, sunn 0))) and more as This Week In Metal continues…
Asphyx – “Death… The Brutal Way” Music Video
In a triple bill from hell, Dark Castle will team up with Orphan and Malkuth on Sept 7th as part of Precious Metal at Lit Lounge! Dark Castle‘s awesome Spirited Migration is out NOW via At A Loss and Malkuth‘s Sefirah Guvrah is out NOW via Hospital Productions. Orphan‘s Aborted by Birth dropped last year.
Saviours is currently working on their follow-up to Into Abbadon, their breakthrough release from 2008. Set to blast off on Oct 13th, the band has employed Phil Manley (of The Fucking Champs) to produce the effort and the band will release a string limited-to-500 7″s entitled Acid Hand, Burnin’ Cross and F.G.T.. in celebration. Check out one of those tracks, “Acid Hand”, above. Meanwhile, look for the band on the road in July, though sadly, not in NYC. Tour dates are below.
Lots of little Ben Falgoust news this week as Goatwhore was recently interviewed by CHOM-FM, Soilent Green have recorded the theme song for Adult Swim’s Squidbillies, and Falgoust has joined Suicide War. Goatwhore‘s Carving Out The Eyes Of God is out NOW.
Napalm Death – “Time Waits For No Slave” Video
Salt Lake City’s Gaza have completed production on their new album for Blackmarket Activities, He’s Never Coming Back, and are looking to release the record on Oct 13th. Stokeage. More to come, and hopefully a little touring as well! In related news, Bird Eater are currently demo-ing material for a new LP, look for some of that material to show up on their myspace.
