BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS: German Sludge Outfit’s Third LP Oozes Towards Release

Hailing from the German city of Mannheim, sludge devastators BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS, having recently signed with Exile On Mainstream, are preparing for the release of their upcoming third full-length Negative Black.

bsoncoverRecorded in the Winter of 2011 and twisted into shape at the mighty Tonmeisterei Studio, Negative Black — an album four years in the making — marks a new step for BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS, carving a path into their foreseeable future. The album has been eagerly awaited by BSON’s diehard cult fanbase and underground doom/sludge aficionados since the release of their bruising 2008-released Microbarome Meetings 2xLP. While the outfit already bears the reputation for unfurling some of the most destructive but still coherently-flowing sludge metal available, incorporating outside elements of crust, black metal and ambient/soundscape persuasion at times, Negative Black surges to even deeper caverns of auditory obliteration, pummeling you with painfully slow doom and finishing you off with acrid, harsh drones, and giving down-tempo a whole new meaning.

 

BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS shall release Negative Black in North America on June 5th Anno Domini, the beast surging with nearly eighty minutes of material over seven supremely suffocating  hymns. It will be made available to fans on CD in a matte-varnished 6-panel digifile, a 2xLP format with inside/out printed gatefold cover, and deluxe digital download.

ACEPHALIX:Release New Track; Second LP Due In April Via Southern Lord

San Francisco’s malevolent death metal overlords ACEPHALIX are preparing to set their second official full-length loose via Southern Lord this April, delivering with it some of the most uncompromised, old-school death metal brutality of the year.acephalix cover

While their first few releases bore a more metal-edged crustpunk sound, the ACEPHALIX attack has undeniably shown more death metal influence with each passing release. After the cult crust/metal scene success of their Aporia LP, released via Prank Records in 2010, the band dropped two brutal demos — 2010’s Interminable Night and 2011’s Flesh Torn In Twilight, Southern Lord brought the two demos together and released a one-time CD pressing of 2000 copies which sold out rapidly. Over the past two years ACEPHALIX have toured relentlessly, doing the Western US with Danish death metal horde Undergang and also taking part in the Power of the Riff 2011 Summer tour alongside Black Breath, Winter, Noothgrush, Eyehategod, Pentagram and more.

Now officially a part of the Southern Lord roster and a major priority for the label, ACEPHALIX are preparing to assault the planet with their second official full-length, bringing out their most pulverizing, low-end deathcrushing riffage and cavernous vocal malevolence yet with Deathless Master. With an incredibly evil, thundering delivery, the eight hymns harnessed on Deathless Master were recorded with Vöetsek’s Jef Leppard, who also recorded Interminable Night. While their punk/crust heritage is still detectable in their songwriting, but the primal delivery of the riffs and guttural, horrifying tone of the vocals on Deathless Master sees the band make the final transition from into a full-fledged, disgustingly behemoth death metal unit. ACEPHALIX.

SPAWN OF POSSESSION Cracks Billboard Heatseekers And Hard Music Charts

spawn coverFollowing the North American release of SPAWN OF POSSESSION’s anticipated third album, Incurso, last week, the Swedish technical death metal horde’s latest work cracked the Billboard charts! The blistering record landed at #63 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and also came in at #62 on the Hard Music Chart in its first week, leaving weaker metal records smoldering in its wake!

Featuring current and former members of Necrophagist and Obscura, Incurso is the first album to be unleashed by SPAWN OF POSSESSION in over five years, and the band’s first for Relapse Records. Already being perceived as one of the most acclaimed extreme releases of 2012 by international metal media outlets, the mind-boggling high-speed attack of Incurso remains as epic and smooth-flowing as it is technically brilliant and unabashedly heavier than hell over the entire course of its near hour-long lifespan, and is unarguably the most professional recording in the heralded Swedish outfit’s ongoing lineage. The entire album is still streaming HERE.

SPAWN OF POSSESSION’s first full tour assault in support of Incurso has been underway for two weeks today, with another two weeks of brutality for the European people to be had. Stay tuned for tour updates and much more on SOP throughout the rest of the year.

Torture sold 1,215 units in its first week in the UK and ranked an astounding #5 on the UK Metal chart, #18 on the UK Indie chart and #126 on the UK Top 200 chart. Torture pummeled Benelux and France as well entering their Top 200 charts at #157 and #129 respectively.

Produced by Hate Eternal’s Erik Rutan, Torture continues to reap critical accolades from critics and fans around the globe and is yet another testament to CANNIBAL CORPSE’s permanent allegiance to shrewdly arranged, pile-driving death metal madness.

CANNIBAL CORPSE’s official U.S. headlining tour will commence this April. Sponsored by Metal Blade Records, Good Fight Entertainment and dB Drum Shoes, the U.S. Torture Tour 2012 will begin April 5 in Jacksonville, Florida. Support on the near month-long trek will be provided by Exhumed, Abysmal Dawn and Arkaik.

CATTLE DECAPITATION: California Extreme Metallers Announce New Album

Three years have lapsed since the last CATTLE DECAPITATION offering. In that time, the band toured the globe, reaped a legion of new devotees and have now written their most palatable, yet abrasive record to date. Titled Monolith Of Inhumanity, CATTLE DECAPITATION manage yet again to forge another beautiful deathscape that will leave fans of 2009’s The Harvest Floor breathless, bloodied and spent.

Monolith Of Inhumanity is CATTLE DECAPITATION’s fifth studio offering on Metal Blade Records. Set for North American release on cattledecapcoverMay 8, 2012, the record was produced by Dave Otero of Denver’s Flatline Audio and sees the band exploring innovative new techniques in song writing and general musical progression without abandoning their signature formula of confrontational audio wreckage and self-loathing lyrical content. Artwork was handled by Wes Benscoter. The culmination of Benscoter’s unearthly abilities fused with vocalist Travis Ryan’s demented views have once again proven to be memorable and fitting for what the music holds in store for the listener.

In addition, CATTLE DECAPITATION have also collaborated with famed pop culture artist Tom Bunk for a very special art project that will be available at the BAND’S WEBSTORE. Tom is best known for his work for the 1980s Garbage Pail Kids trading cards and MAD Magazine, and has created an incredible GPK-inspired CATTLE DECAPITATION trading card set that must be seen to be believed.

Monolith… will further reinforce CATTLE’s legacy as one of the most influential and important bands in extreme music. As MetalSucks.net put it: “CATTLE DECAPITATION have the sort of skills that put them squarely at the head of grind’s noisy pack.”
