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.”

Spring 2013 Tour Dates Announced, Intrinsic Out Now!

Frontman/Keyboardist Jonathan Carpenter weighs in on the news:

“We feel honored to be sharing the stage with the legendary Deftones! They have an incredible sound that has absolutely impacted us as musicians. Should be a surreal week”

The band then heads out on the road with label-mates WITHIN THE RUINS on a batch of dates trekking to the west coast and back. They’ll then kick off the THE ROAD TO METAL FEST supporting AFTER THE BURIAL. Dates on TOUR DATES page (click tab above).

THE CONTORTIONIST released Intrinsic to much critical acclaim. Landing at number #107 on the Billboard Top 200, #15 on the Hard Music Chart and #3 on the New Artist Chart, it was the most successful first week the band has had to date. It’s also on sale now for $6.66 here!

“The band’s ability to balance chaos and solemnity have never been better. Breaking from soft, ethereal passages into grueling, mosh-ready grooves at the drop of a hat”Altpress.com

“This is certainly one of the most exciting metal albums of the year, and it shows that The Contortionist is definitely going places in the very near future”Metal Injection

“The Contortionist are, without a doubt, one of the most exciting young prog-metal bands on the scene today”MetalSucks

“It is not a record to put on while studying or in the car, but on a good stereo or set of headphones and really kick back and get immersed. It truly deserves your full attention, and so does this band” – About.com

THE CONTORTIONIST: Robby Baca (Guitar), Jonathan Carpenter (Vocals, Keyboards), Joey Baca (Percussion), Cameron Maynard (Guitar), Christopher Tilley (Bass Guitar)

LANDMINE MARATHON To Play Obscene Extreme Fests

Arizona grind masters LANDMINE MARATHON announced plans for a week-long West Coast tour en route to the Obscene Extreme Festival in Mexico alongside Napalm Death, Phobia, Dying Fetus and many more. The tour kicks off March 19 in Las Vegas and continues until the band reaches Mexico City on March 28. Full dates can be found on the TOUR DATES page. The band also announced that they will make their European live debut later this year at the European Obscene Extreme Festival in the Czech Republic.

Upcoming West Coast mini-tour marks first stretch of shows with new vocalist

LANDMINE MARATHON’s new vocalist Krysta Martinez commented,

“I couldn’t be more excited to be hitting the road for the first time with Landmine Marathon and playing these West Coast dates on our way to Mexico for Obscene Extreme America! Obscene Extreme America truly has one of the most crushing line-ups I’ve ever seen! I am so glad to be involved!”

The band also revealed that they are currently writing the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2011 release Gallows, which was awarded “Album of the Month” honors by Terrorizer, who praised its “killer riffs, righteous anger and a burning desire to fuck shit up.” Such praise earned LM a hand-picked spot on Metallica’s Orion Music & More Festival in 2012.

LANDMINE MARATHON recently re-recorded two songs (Bile Towers and Dead Horses) with Martinez; both available digitally.
