ANTROPOMORPHIA Add Second Guitar Player

 

Controversial necromantic Death Metallers ANTROPOMORPHIA added a second guitar player to their ranks.

Comments the band: “After an extended journey through the mazes of darkness a new fire has been lit to illuminate our ritual masses. We are proud to announce that we’ve welcomed a new member to our nekromantian horde : J. (full name Jos van den Brand) is an experienced guitar player who we know for many years and played in several prestigious Dutch (death) metal acts since the early ’90’s. With J in our presence the preparations have begun to open the portals and to set ablaze every stage that comes on our path/journey.”
Ave Luciferi

In other news, ANTROPOMORPHIA reacted to a letter their label Metal Blade Records received from the German BPJM (Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons) that included an indexing request for the band’s latest album Evangelivm Nekromantia. The letter claims the cover artwork of the album as well as the song Fleisch illustrate and address killings and violence in an autotelic way. Furthermore, they don’t seem to be too happy about the album title. A newspiece in German can be found HERE, a newspiece in Dutch HERE.

Comments the band: “We’ve made certain people nervous and uncomfortable with our music and lyrical content. In order to ‘protect’ the children, it’s quite possible Evangelivm Nekromantia will be banned and removed from German stores. Through their ridiculous and hypocrite way of thinking they are not letting people use their own intelligence or freedom of choice, this in an era where you turn on the news and see the world’s vile and repulsive excrements in full HD. These people are nothing more than a bunch of pitiful sheep! They might think this ban will be castigation but it will only strengthen us in our opposition towards these sad shallow people that crowd the world with their insignificant lives. To us, it’s the perfect representation of people without perception other than a retarded opinion about an artistic expression.”

ANTROPOMORPHIA just finished another video shooting, this time around for the song Debauchery In Putrefaction.

BIO:

 

Most high school friends can’t even stand to look at each other once school’s out, but in the case of vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key, they decided to spend even more time together after graduation.

Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, they joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist  Matty J “Moose” to create Pyschostick, a band they’ve coined as humorcore. With hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics and high-energy performances, the band has caused millions of laughs around the world and hundreds of mosh pits across the US, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.

Almost 100 percent do-it-yourself, Psychostick never strays from its signature sound, a combination of heavy music Chimaira, Machine Head and Hatebreed would be proud of and wit and humor that would make Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic holler with laughter.

With two full-length albums behind them – We Couldn’t Think of a Title and Sandwich – the band released their latest record, Space Vampires VS Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D, in 2011, following it up with a tour with Mushroomhead to add to their total count of 21 nationwide tours that have hit 47 states.

GOOD FOR YOU (Featuring Greg Ginn, Mike Vallely) Air Out New Album, Single

On February 26, SST Records will release Life is Too Short to Not Hold a Grudge, the debut album from GOOD FOR YOU, the brand new band featuring influential guitarist and bandleader Greg Ginn and professional skateboarder and musician Mike Vallely (aka Mike V). Featuring eleven uniquely distinct high-energy rock songs blistered with themes of betrayal, regret, disillusionment, resolve, determination and independence propelled by Ginn’s distinctive, stun-gun guitar, Life is Too Short to Not Hold a Grudge sets a new course for both musicians and delivers a strong statement of intent that begs to be heard. Now, the world famous skateboarding magazine Thrasher grinds the brand new track Stupid Me, a bulldozing cut that showcases Ginn at the top of his game as Vallely belts out mongo lyrics (“Tattoo it. To your flesh. Take it with you. To your death!”). Crank your stereo to 11 and soar with Stupid Me now!

Life is Too Short to Not Hold a Grudge features the traits of a benchmark release. Rarely is rock so pure and hard-hitting. Recorded at Ginn’s Casa Destroy Studios in Taylor, TX, Life is Too Short to Not Hold a Grudge teams the singular guitarist – named as one of both Rolling Stone and SPIN’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” – with the creative, aggressive Vallely for the first time since BLACK FLAG’s 2003 reunion shows in Los Angeles where Mike V performed the entire My War album from start to finish with the world renowned punk rock band at the invitation of Ginn.

Life is Too Short to Not Hold a Grudge is available to pre-order now (iTunes / SST Superstore).

Additionally, GOOD FOR YOU announced U.S. tour dates in support of the new album including live summer dates with Ginn and BLACK FLAG. Check the TOUR DATES page (click tab above) to view.

“I can’t wait to deliver these songs live with Mike,” said Ginn.

“I have the feeling that things are going to get wild.”

As the founder, guitarist and driving influence behind BLACK FLAG, Greg Ginn defined the west coast punk sound and the DIY ethos of punk rock. In many ways, Vallely is the perfect frontman to lead Ginn’s first hard rock band since the dissolution of BLACK FLAG. One of the most recognizable pro skateboarders on the planet today, Vallely (owner and creative mind behind Elephant Brand Skateboards) has earned a cross-cultural, worldwide fan base over the course of his two decade plus career as a professional skateboarder and years fronting the bands Mike V and The Rats and Revolution Mother (which played internationally with Danzig, Social Distortion and Bad Religion). Mike V also an actor, television personality and professional stuntman whose talents were featured in the hit movies Paul Blart: Mall Cop, the record-breaking The Hangover, which included a song written and performed by Vallely on its soundtrack (Mike V will also appear in the upcoming sequel The Hangover III) and the 2012 film Red Dawn (based on the 1984 film of the same name) among others. The vocalist first saw BLACK FLAG perform at City Gardens in Trenton, New Jersey in 1984, crediting it as a life changing experience. Greg and Mike first met in Long Beach, CA in May 2003 when Mike V And The Rats started a supporting run of shows for Greg that would eventually lead to the guest vocal spot at the BLACK FLAG reunion shows. A friendship was formed and the two have kept in touch through the years with the intention of collaborating on new music at some point. In February 2012, Ginn presented Vallely with new music and the singer spent the next five months filling notebooks with lyrics. The duo’s intense songwriting chemistry generated both a solid set of dynamic songs that would become Life Is Too Short To Not Hold A Grudge and the formation of an entirely new band: GOOD FOR YOU.

Track listing:

Side A:

1.) I’d Rather Die
2.) No Plan B
3.) Free
4.) Hanging Around
5.) Knife in the Face

Side B:

1.) Stupid Me
2.) Good Sport
3.) It’s Just Business
4.) Dreams
5.) Blaze of Glory
6.) True Companion

“Good For You’s gnarled, snarling debut-the aptly named Life Is Too Short To Not Hold A Grudge-is the closest thing to classic Black Flag that Ginn has pumped out since, well, Black Flag…this one rocks. Hard.” – THE ONION

VESPERIA announce new guitarist

An emphatic note from our friends in VESPERIA, containing 7 exclamations!Vesperia

We are very pleased to announce the addition of our newest guitar player, Frankie Caracci!

Frankie came to us earlier this fall when we announced our search for a guitarist and we were more than excited to try him out! We have been working with him diligently over the past month or so to prepare him for recording and live shows, which will no doubt be our tightest and most energetic ones yet!

We are currently in the studio recording our next full length album ‘An Olden Tale’ and it will be the perfect platform to display Frankie’s absolutely monster guitar skills!

We are more than excited to begin the next chapter of VESPERIA!

Welcome to the band Frankie!

Cheers!
