DYING FETUS Recruit ABIOTIC, RIVERS OF NIHIL To Fall Tour

Dying Fetus announced their headlining tour for this Fall with Exhumed, Devourment, Waking the Cadaver (10/4-10/19), as well as up-and-coming Metal Blade Records artists Abiotic, and Rivers of Nihil (10/26-11/2).

Surfacing from the heart of South Florida, Miami’s ABIOTIC transcends high above the rest with a most preternatural sound. By interweaving well-cultivated musical dexterity and pronounced lyrical finesse, ABIOTIC epitomizes an unwonted entity of unmatched musicianship. In a short amount of time since the quintet’s inception in 2010, this ghoulish coterie has made a paramount impact in the death metal scene and support from the masses continues to grow. The five-piece group consists of vocalist Ray Jimenez, bassist Alex Vazquez, drummer Andres Hurtado and guitarists Matt Mendez and Johnathan Matos. The band’s Metal Blade debut, Symbiosis, is available everywhere now and their Dan Drescher-directed music video, Facades, is streaming at metalblade.com/abiotic.

Reading, Pennsylvania’s death metal quintet, Rivers of Nihil, recently entered Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg with Erik Rutan to record their first full-length album and Metal Blade Records debut, which is due out before the end of 2013. Tracking has been completed and finishing touches are being put on the album and the artwork. Music and information will be released in the coming months. Until then, fans can sample what’s to come in a demo for Rain Eater on soundcloud HERE.

Rivers of Nihil guitarist Brody Uttley comments on the tour:

“We’re incredibly excited to be part of this tour. Dying Fetus played a huge role in shaping the early sound of Rivers of Nihil and they continue to influence us to this day, and we grew up listening to Exhumed and Devourment and we’re honored to be touring with them. We’re also excited to be touring with some of our younger peers and Metal Blade brothers in Abiotic. We’ll be playing all new material from our new album, which will be coming out later this year.”

SET TO REFLECT Sign With Standby Records

(Akron, Ohio) – SET TO REFLECT signed with Standby Records. The band is set to release their debut EP April 2.

Debut EP Available April 2nd

Vocalist Tony McVaney commented on signing to Standby Records:

“We’ve been writing this record over the past 3 years and to us it’s crazy that its finally done and coming to life. We knew right away we wanted to go into the studio with Landon Tewers. We’ve worked with him before and he believes in our music just as much as we do so we know it’s going to come out perfect. We really can’t be more proud of anything we’ve ever done and we hope everyone who listens to the record can love it just as much as we do.”

Check out the video of the band announcing their signing to Standby Records HERE.

The post-hardcore quintet was originally formed by best friends Tony Mcvaney and Alan Bryan after the demise of their past bands. Not willing to settle for members that were less than perfect, the two recorded three demos with producer Landon Tewers and began try outs. After almost a full year of struggling with temporary members that did not quite fit, things began to fall into place with the addition of bassist Trevor Jenkins, guitarist Matthew Luthie, and lastly, percussionist William Green.

After completing the line-up, the band quickly found their footing, followed by a flurry of writing, recording, and touring. This spring will begin the next big phase in the bands life, as they begin tracking their debut full-length and national touring.

With a fresh new attitude, the drive to make great music for their audience and the delivery of an intense live show to back it, SET TO REFLECT is happy to finally be rolling full force into the future, making new fans and friends. The future could not be brighter.

BIO:

No good could possibly come out of the frigid Northern lands of Alberta, you say? Well, sorry to tell you, there’s an exception to every rule. Enter smoldering power-thrash five-piece Edge of Attack.

Combining haunting vocals, shredding guitars, complex bass lines, furious drumming and choral and symphonic arrangements with surprising depth, Edge of Attack has not only taken the metal scene by storm, but also by surprise. Having been featured in Revolver magazine, you’d think the band has surely been around for years, but truth be told, they’ve accomplished all this while releasing no more than two singles.

Representing the changes that have taken place and the reinvention of Edge of Attack’s sound, the self-titled album, which was produced by guitarist/vocalist Jurekk Whipple himself and is soon to be released with Spread the Metal Records, is, simply put, a reawakening and rebirthing of power metal with thrash creeping its way into the picture.
