Horror Pain Gore Death Productions To Release MASTER 15th Anniversary Album

Official 15th Anniversary Edition reissue of the classic Master album, Faith Is In Season. Master is the most well-known project of bassist, vocalist and songwriter Paul Speckmann. Prominent in the early Extreme Metal underground as one of the first Death Metal bands, they are also one of the most influential artists alongside Death and Possessed.

Master

Master helped invent the genre of Grindcore as well, expanding on a heavy influence of Motorhead, Venom and Slayer. Originally released by Pavement Music on April 7 1998, Faith Is In Season marks the true return to brutality for the band. Thick bass reproduction stands out on this raw, muscular recording as well as lyrical content that is full of visceral emotion and antisocial resistance.

For fans of Asphyx, Autopsy, Benediction, Bolt Thrower, Cancer, Entombed, Grave, Malevolent Creation, Mantas, Massacre, Morgoth, Obituary, Pestilence, Repulsion and Sinister.

ANCIIENTS Stream New Song, Announce Tour Dates

Progressive rock/metal outfit ANCIIENTS premiered a new song from their forthcoming album, Heart of Oak. The new track, Faith and Oath is streaming here.

Regarding the song, guitarist Chris Dyck said,“Faith and Oath began lyrically with some combo ideas about the Mayan’s serpent-god beliefs and a strange dream I had about a snake-killing ritual. The serpent originally was representing the deceiver; as the song progressed and the vibe was realized it became our anthem for courage and strength. The chorus features Scott Ruddy from Weirding (killer doomy Vancouver band) on vocals with me. The proggy fast riff is what i like to call a “ninja riff”…looks hard, easy to play. Kenny’s solo here is mental and I love how Hannay and Boon shift the timing on the last 2 repetitions of the solo riff to a swinging old 3/4 beat. The outro has Kenny laying down some sweet Dave Gilmours. We all dig Pink Floyd…Gilmour is the man. Cheers.”

ANCIIENTS also announced their participation in the Death To All Tour. ANCIIENTS will tour alongside legendary metal icons Paul Masvidal, Steve DiGiorgio, and Sean Reinert: The Human lineup of legendary metal pioneers, DEATH. The tour spans 3 weeks, hitting a dozen cities across North America.

Regarding the tour, guitarist Kenneth Cook said,“We are completely stoked and overjoyed to be invited to play on the DEATH TO ALL tour. Chuck Schuldiner and Death are legendary, and it is an honor to be able to celebrate his life for a great cause.”

A portion of the proceeds will once again benefit the Sweet Relief charity, a non-profit devoted to helping musicians without insurance who are facing serious illness. A full list of tour dates on the TOUR DATES page.

Heart of Oak slated for a North American release on April 16, will be available on CD, limited edition double gate-fold LP, and digitally. It is available now for pre-order at the Season of Mist E-shop.

Previously, the band streamed the tracks Falling in Line, and Raise the Sun. Both tracks are available on the ANCIIENTS Facebook page.

“One of 2013’s most anticipated albums”Decibel

“The foursome’s brand of metal is thunderous yet always focused on melody, striking a strong balance between commanding and catchy. Unlike much of today’s mainstream metal acts, these guys know how to write honest-to-goodness songs, showing tremendous discipline amidst all the instrumental flamboyance, and are primed to put their young peers to shame” Popmatters.com, The Best Hopes to Break Out in 2013

 

New SIX FEET UNDER Song Available

Death metal behemoths SIX FEET UNDER are back, and with the seething Unborn, the tenth full-length of their imposing career, they are out for blood. Led by the inimitable Chris Barnes, owner of one of the most powerful and instantly recognizable voices in the genre, the band are returning with an overhauled line up that sees them reinvigorated and churning out some of the most visceral music they have ever put their name to.

SIX FEET UNDER debut Neuro Osmosis

Click here to hear the third single from Unborn, Neuro Osmosis. You can hear Prophecy on The Welding Room or request ANY song from the new album.

In November of 2010 when vocalist and founding member Chris Barnes first started to get the idea of working with new writers for SIX FEET UNDER’s next release, he contacted Rob Arnold, Jari Laine, and Ben Savage to share in the writing process. After just two years of writing and recording 20 plus tracks, and releasing Undead in May of 2012, SIX FEET UNDER are now proud to unveil Undead’s demented fraternal twin…

Undead proved to be one of SIX FEET UNDER’s most critically acclaimed albums to date, and with a revamped and tour-hardened lineup rounded out by: guitarist Ola Englund, drummer Kevin Talley, bassist Jeff Hughell, and long-time guitarist Steve Swanson, Unborn promises to elevate the band to even loftier heights.

The lyric video for Zombie Blood Curse, the first track to be loosed from Unborn, is streaming now at metalblade.com/sixfeetunder. While there, fans can also pre-order the album.

“this is the best thing SFU have recorded since Maximum Violence…[Chris Barnes] hasn’t sounded this focused or committed in years”  – Decibel
