CEPHALIC CARNAGE European Tour To Begin

Technical, brutality goodness! You should probably be asking for more CEPHALIC on the big ratio program. Air your grievances here… now! And listen live every Tuesday/Thursday.

Rocky Mountain hydro-grinders Cephalic Carnage announced a month long European Tour as direct support for death metal legends Suffocation. The tour kicks off on May 9 in Geneva, Swiztzerland and runs through June 8 in Munich, Germany. A complete list of dates is included below.

Cephalic Carnage also began writing new material for their highly anticipated 7th full-length album. More details on this process will be announced shortly. The entire Cephalic Carnage discography is currently available for streaming via Bandcamp at this location.

Guitarist Steve Goldberg commented on the upcoming tour:

We are extremely excited to get back to Europe with our good friends in Suffocation, and to be out there with our local buddies in HAVOK. There are a few stops we haven’t been to in a very long time, and a few places we have never been to.  This tour will be brutal!

XUL Reveal New Band Logo; Free Album Download

 amr_logo_smal_570

Brutal Western Canadian death band XUL whom are in studio recording their follow up EP to their debut album Malignance which available for FREE DOWNLOAD here. XUL are proud to reveal to fans their new logo.

XUL (pictured from left to right): Bill Ferguson – Vocals/Guitar, Wallace Huffman – Guitar, Marlow Deiter – Bass, Lowell Winters – Drums, Levi Meyers – Vocals

“We knew at some point during our time together that we would end up changing our logo. This is the third time our logo has changed, but this time, we believe it will be permanent. Bill Ferguson our guitarist created the other two using graph paper, so we decided to get the new logo done professionally. It coincides with our growth not only as musicians, but as a group, as we have spent a lot of time together over the past four years. Artist Chris Horst did an excellent job and we think it turned out awesome. It keeps the theme of our old logo but brings some new complementary elements together as well. This will make for a somewhat simple transition from old logo, to new. This is a new chapter in our musical journey and to document it, we felt this was the best decision, we hope everyone digs it!”  – vocalist Levi Meyers

If you’re a fan of Behemoth, Dissection and Immortal this is one album not to be missed as the band forges their brand of Blackened Death Metal.

About:

A five piece group based out of Vernon, British Columbia, Canada, following in the footsteps of bands such as: Behemoth, Dissection, and Immortal, XUL have left the beaten path and set out to forge their own brand of Blackened Death Metal.

An energetic and interactive live performance – with crushing rhythms seamlessly coalescing into atmospheric passages, accompanied by punishing percussion waves and subtle vocal harmonies – expands upon the previously established essence of the sub-genre. With songs reminiscent of war-torn landscapes, destructive human nature and evil intent, XUL has captivated audiences and garnered positive reviews, and on June 16, 2012, released their first full length album, entitled Malignance.

Driven by determination and a diverse accumulation of musical comprehension, XUL has toured Western Canada, as well as proven themselves worthy to share the stage with bands such as: Obscura, Exhumed, Vreid, Kampfar, Woods of Ypres, Macabre, Withered, Cephalic Carnage, Archspire and 3 Inches of Blood. With a spring 2013 tour looming, XUL is determined to build on an impressive local following by infecting Western Canada with hopes of Canada in its entirety in the near future. XUL’s focus for winter 2012 is to meticulously craft new material for another release in 2013.

ALLEGAEON Prepare for Tour; Launch Jackson Guitar Contest

Win The Welding Room host, Rik Johnson’s dream guitar (with an extra string)!

ALLEGAEON prepare for The End of the World tour; launch Jackson guitar giveaway contest

ALLEGAEON is the final stages of preparing for their US tour with Job for a Cowboy. In celebration of The End of the World TourALLEGAEON has partnered with Jackson® Guitars and Guitar World to giveaway a brand new 7-string Jackson Soloist SLATXMGQ3-7! Several runners-up will receive copies of Allegaeon’s new album, Formshifter. Enter to win on GuitarWorld.com –http://www.guitarworld.com – and check out the demo video for the Soloist model at jacksonguitars.com.

Earlier this year, ALLEGAEON released a DIY video for their song A Path Disclosed, which can be seen on youtube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKqUOiYoEAE. Additionally, guitarists Greg Burgess and Ryan Glisan can be seen in a guitar demonstration video for Tartessos: The Hidden Xenocryst here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUdEpaILWOg.

You can hear the Formshifter tracks, Tartessos: The Hidden Xenocryst and Twelve on The Welding Room.

“Now this is metal worth getting excited about. Formshifter has thrown down a gauntlet to metal bands everywhere and dared them to do better” – Kerrang Magazine 

“But the members of Allegaeon are so monstrously talented—see the entwined guitar harmonics, machine-gun drumming, and even the occasional, not insufferably acoustic interlude on the group’s heavily NWOBHM-shaded second LP, Formshifter—that they dig their way out of the doldrums of mere proficiency.” – AVClub.com

“The huge walls of crushing low tuned chugging and burning shred passages are awesome, but ultimately it’s the band’s ability of being able to really put together catchy heavy tracks that sets them above the rest of the pack.” – About.com
