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.

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.

ZOZOBRA Announce New Album Details

Brutal Panda Records
(Boston, MA) – ZOZOBRA have revealed the details behind their latest release Savage Masters, due out April 2 on LP/Digital via Brutal Panda Records.

The brainchild of Caleb Scofield (Cave In, Old Man Gloom), ZOZOBRA formed in 2006 and quickly released two crushing full-lengths of atmospheric sludge metal, Harmonic Tremors (2007) and Bird of Prey (2008). Now five years later, the band has re-emerged with Savage Masters, their most aggressive and straightforward release to date.  Bursting out the gate with a bold, determined purpose, Savage Masters is an unrelenting fury of post-hardcore ferocity and sludge-tinged amplifier crunch. This release, featuring long-time Cave In bandmates Adam McGrath (guitars) and J.R. Conners (drums), proves once and for all that ZOZOBRA are a veritable force to be reckoned with. Savage Masters was produced and recorded by Andrew Schneider (Unsane, Pelican) and contains stunning artwork by English alchemist Glyn Smyth (Unearthly Trance, Wolves in the Throne Room, Cough).

The track Black Holes is available for streaming here and a preview of the album art plus pre-order packages are available here with digital pre-orders available here.

Additionally, the band announced a co-headlining Northeast tour with label-mates KOWLOON WALLED CITY, set to begin on April 6 in Brooklyn, NY. Click on the TOUR DATES tab (above) to view list of live dates.www.brutalpandarecords.com

JUNIUS Headline Tour Dates

Post-metal quartet JUNIUS recently completed an extensive European tour alongside Katatonia and Alcest.

 

Plus, they revealed a string of headlining dates following their recently announced tour supporting Caspian. Starting March 6 in San Francisco, the band will be supported by Los Angeles rockers Silver Snakes on a jaunt that will lead them to Austin, Texas for the prestigious South By Southwest Festival. The group will also headline two shows prior to their tour with Caspian, including a Valentine’s Day performance in Brooklyn, NY.

Reports From The Threshold Of Death, the band’s PROSTHETIC debut, was described by Decibel as “the music that many Radiohead fans wished Thom Yorke wrote after The Bends, while AP praised its “musical innovation and expansive concepts.”

The group has supported the release by touring with artists such as Enslaved, O’Brother and label mates Wolves Like Us. A second pressing of the album’s vinyl edition (available on orange marble or blue marble variants) is currently up for grabs HERE.
