About: Toronto, Canada’s high-energy, modern thrash monsters Fatality have been cranking out wise-cracking, beer-drenched nightmares together since 2003. Known for their wild, riotous live performances and their peerless work ethic, they have been independently booking and promoting their own shows, creating great merch, touring North America, and making some great tunes along the way. Few bands embody the DIY spirit as fully as Fatality consistently do, and no other bands have as much fun working their asses off.

Fatality’s debut effort, Beers From The Grave, was an irreverent, horror-themed album that eschewed seriousness in favour of hard living and good times. Decibel Magazine quipped that, on Beers From The Grave,

“solos fly with reckless abandon, the bass is audible and practically so are the beers being cracked open. These guys must have awesome parties.”

Hellbound.ca stated that Fatality are “a bundle of crass, explosive, obnoxiously positive energy spewing beer and shrapnel.” Part homage to classic zombie apocalypse horror and part retro-thrash ruckus, Beers From The Grave was an exciting, riotously messy debut.

fatality - thoughts collide (official music video)

After supporting Beers From The Grave with East coast Canadian tours, and being invited to share the stage with the likes of Exodus, Municipal Waste, Holy Grail and Razor, the thrash rockers went back to the studio and emerged with still more new material. Three rough-and-tumble, irresistibly catchy singles — “T.F.E.S.”, “Uppercut” and “Hammerfist” — were bundled together as a free EP. While most bands would have simply released a free record and called it a day, Fatality supported their singles with North American tours, winning hearts, destroying livers and splitting eardrums along the way. After those adventures, Fatality went into a period of hiatus. They emerged from this creative cocoon and re-instated their original drummer, Mason LeVon (brother to guitarist and vocalist Spencer LeVon, who replaced longtime friend and skinsman Andrew Suarez), and new musical vision. In early 2012, the band began writing a brand-new full-length, ‘Psychonaut’, unquestionably their most ambitious project to date.

DISSENSION Announce Debut Album Release Date, Streaming Title Track

amr_logo_smal_570Montreal, QC based metal band DISSENSION is proud to announce the upcoming release of their debut album ‘Of Time And Chronic Disease’ digitally worldwide on September 10 through Believe Digital along with it being sold physically on vinyl.

Sharing the stage with international heavyweights like Tyr, Threat Signal and Cryptopsy plus performing in front of their hometown crowd at Heavy MTL 2011 along with recently being finalists at Wacken Metal Battle Canada, Dissension’s eclectic mix of thrash, black and power metal attacks the darker side of human nature, reaching epic heights and somber depths. Their debut’s ten brutal assaulting tracks were produced by Kevin Jardine of Uplift Productions, (Slaves on Dope, What Comes To Life, One) and mastered by Ryan Morey (Arcade Fire, Priestess, Half Moon Run).

Dissension is now streaming their first single off the debut at the following links below.

Vocalist / guitarist Nathan Afilalo comments:

“Having been a band for about six years, we have long anticipated the great day where we could let our music take flight upon the winds of the world.  With that in mind, Of Time and Chronic Disease is a summation of our music since it contains some of our very earliest songs to some of our latest. The album has to be taken as a whole, as the individual songs all represent a different facet of the whole that is our music. It’s like a hydra, the beast can only truly be slain if you remove all of its heads and immerse yourself in the dark pools of its blood.”

The band will be holding CD launch in Montreal, QC on September 13th at Foufounes Electriques with local support from Skeleris, Murtenscythe, Intonate, Citizen Vicious.

IN SOLITUDE Confirm Fall Tour With WATAIN

In Solitude will be returning to North America this Fall with Watain and Tribulation! This will be In Solitude’s first North American tour since the Decibel Magazine tour in 2012, which also happened to feature Watain. The tour, which runs from October 8 through November 3, will be in support of the upcoming album, “Sister. The album is set for release to coincide with the dates and In Solitude fans will be able to find new music streaming at metalblade.com/insolitude within the next few weeks. Updates, including new music, album art, and pre-order bundles, will be posted as they are made available.

In Solitude vocalist Pelle Ahman comments:

“We are tremendously enthusiastic to announce that In Solitude are coming back to America and Canada in October. We are especially delighted to do this in the company of our great companions of Watain and Tribulation. It is our great pleasure to take part in this grand malady. We can’t wait to arrive and let it steal another sky from our eyes. See you in October.”

Watain comments:

“Starting the first full tour for ‘The Wild Hunt‘ in North America seems quite appropriate, considering how many severe experiences and sleepless nights that country has bestowed upon us while riding through its strange wilderness… A thousand years and a thousand deaths have passed since we last visited the States, so prepare yourself to face something very, very old and very, very hungry. Deformed from both victory and defeat, distorted by a constant influx of powers residing beyond the borders of this world, we now return to join forces with our ever loyal US supporters. With us we will have two acts that has the capacity of transforming the audience into one big open wound before we go on stage, ready then to receive the lethal yet illuminating venom of WATAIN.”

In Solitude’s previous album, “The World.The Flesh.The Devil stands as one of the most critically acclaimed releases of 2011. Decibel Magazine ranked the album at #4 on its top 40 extreme albums of 2011. Fans can watch the music video for “To Her Darkness” from “The World.The Flesh.The Devil” on YouTube HERE.
