CHIMAIRA Debut New Music Video

CHIMAIRA debuted a brand new music video for their single No Mercy today via their own web page. The single, as well as the full album preorder, are now available via iTunes.

Vocalist Mark Hunter weighs in:

“We are pumped to present the first official video for our new album Crown of Phantoms. Directed by Cleveland native Patrick Finegan, No Mercy is a ferocious, twisted, cerebral ride through hell and back. Enjoy the trip!”

CHIMAIRA announced the CROWN OF PHANTOMS tour surrounding their highly anticipated new LP of the same name. Dates will stretch coast to coast in the U.S. with support from THE BROWNING, THREAT SIGNAL and label-mates DARK SERMON.

6. The Transmigration
7. Crown Of Phantoms
8. Spineless

11. Love Soaked Death

PRE-ORDER HERE

CHIMAIRA will release Crown Of Phantoms on July 30. With critical accolades already starting to compile, this is set to be some of the band’s best material to date.

“Tracks like No Mercy, Plastic Wonderland and Spineless are absolute slayers that will surely impress longtime fans and newbies alike, and bring that classic I Hate Everyone flavor we’ve all grown to love” REVOLVER MAGAZINE

The band recently posted a video that reveals album artwork, track listing and 30 second song clips from their new album. CHIMAIRA also made headlines by way of crowd-funding a fan version CD/DVD where they more than doubled their initial goal via IndieGoGo.

For more than a decade, Chimaira has been imposing its gravity on the metal community by continually touring the globe and selling more than a million albums worldwide. Their brand of heavy music has evolved and transcended both itself and the trends while maintaining its persistent, bludgeoning force. In 2013, Chimaira continues to direct the masses & define a dark future with their new album, Crown of Phantoms.

Make no mistake; a monster has come in from the darkness to feed. Awakened, haunted, pissed-off, and above all, completely aware. You have no choice but to allow Chimaira to transcend your expectations yet again.

ANCIENT VVISDOM Announce Tour

Austin-based heavy occult rock group ANCIENT VVISDOM just revealed plans for a upcoming U.S. headlining trek, the Pagan Summer Tour, which will also feature psychedelic rockers The Saint James Society with select appearances from fellow occult rockers Bloody Hammers. A trailer for the tour can be viewed below or shared via YouTubehttp://youtu.be/FVlDqZdUhrc

Watch the Video

Praised for its “churning, dark skeletal songs” while being compared to “the folky grunge of Alice in Chains” by the New York Times, ANCIENT VVISDOM’s sophomore release, Deathlike, captivated the media and fans alike. Mixed and mastered by engineer/co-producer Jason Buntz along with partner Jack Control (Jet, The Darkness), Deathlike was recorded utilizing primitive and unique percussion such as bones, bullets, machetes and railroad spikes to formulate a hauntingly archaic sound. The music video for the album’s title track can be viewed HERE.

ANCIENT VVISDOM Announce U.S. Tour Dates

Tsurumi Records Releases Indie Horror Film Soundtrack

Seattle-based indie punk and garage rock record label Tsurumi Records release their first-ever soundtrack for the underground indie horror flick The Revenant to online and physical stores today.

The Revenant marks the label’s first-ever release through their new digital distribution partner, French Kiss Label Group as well as the label’s first-ever soundtrack release. The physical release on CD is through their long-time partner, CPI Distribution, available through stores nationwide.

Staying true to vinyl, in May the label will also issue 500 limited edition vinyl copies of The Revenant on picture disc, with a subset specially packaged for fans of The Revenant through www.Fangoria.com. Vinyl pre-orders can be purchased now at www.tsurumirecords.com

“We are label focused on vinyl productions and this soundtrack is no different in that way,” enthuses label owner and Seattle resident Jeff Davis.

“We think fans of the movie will want these as collector items.”

The Revenant soundtrack features music from Tsurumi acts like garage punks The Beautiful Mothers and experimental rockers The Second Academy, international acts Aqualush and La Mala Rodriguez, classical music from two companies and even an appearance from seminal underground sensation The Shaggies.

“I’ve always been inspired by really good soundtracks, like Pulp Fiction and Clockwork Orange,” Davis adds.

Three years ago Davis’ good friend and independent film maker Kerry Prior, approached him about collaborating on a soundtrack for The Revenant; a modern take on a classic horror story, which he wrote, directed and produced.

The childhood friends grew up together in Cleveland, OH listening to and playing punk rock.

The Revenant began its film festival run with a premier at the 2009 at Toronto’s “After Dark” Fest, upon which they dubbed it one of the “10 Movies To See Before You Die.” It later ran in theaters in 2012 and is now out on DVD. Reviews ranging from diverse sources such as The Newark Star-Ledger to DreadCentral.com declare it “sure to become a cult classic.”

The film focuses on Second Lieutenant Bart Gregory (David Anders), who is killed under mysterious circumstances in Iraq only to find out that he didn’t really die. Rather, he is undead: a zombie-vampire hybrid, known as the Revenant. Bart needs blood to hold back decomposition and he finds his way around his new state against the dark backdrop of downtown Los Angeles.

The Revenant appears to be moving towards that cult status with a solid underground and online fan base that is growing daily. Every cult classic needs a killer soundtrack and now fans of The Revenant won’t have to wait any longer.
