CATTLE DECAPITATION To Release 7″ Single

CATTLE DECAPITATION will be releasing a 7″ single this summer! Your Disposal features the B-side, An Exposition of Insides, which was previously available only as a Japanese bonus track on the band’s most recent album, Monolith of Inhumanity. The single is available (both black and clear vinyl) for order on-line on indiemerchstore.com for $5.50, as well as in a bundle with a t-shirt for $18.99. Pick up your copy of the single HERE, and check out the t-shirt bundle HERE. Fans attending this year’s The Summer Slaughter Tour can grab their copy at the band’s merch booth throughout the tour.

7″ available via indiemerchstore.com and at the band’s merch table on tour

Vocalist Travis Ryan comments:

“We noticed a lot of people were dismayed to find out there was a track available out there on a Japanese version of Monolith of Inhumanity that nobody outside of Japan had ever heard before. When it hit YouTube, that’s when we started getting emails from fans. We noticed the lyrics weren’t inside that version or available anywhere at all so that gave us the idea of throwing it on a b-side and releasing a 7″ vinyl single for Your Disposal with the song An Exposition of Insides! We feel that Monolith is the mother of all of our releases so far and I thought it’d be funny to make it look like she just squirted out a baby and that’s what this little guy looks like. Just in time for Summer Slaughter!”

The most extreme tour of the year has returned with its most devastating and anticipated line-up yet. The 7th annual Summer Slaughter Tour, presented by Indie Merch Store, ESP and Guitar World, is now officially slated to run from July 19th through August 24th. It features such heavyweights as The Dillinger Escape PlanAnimals As LeadersPeripheryNorma JeanCattle DecapitationThe OceanRevocationAeon and two bands TBA. Stay tuned over the coming weeks for official tour dates to be announced.

AMARANTHE Unveils Mechanical Illusion Video, The Nexus Available March 26 via Spinefarm Records

In the words of AMARANTHE guitarist/composer Olof Mörck,

“To give a second taster of The Nexus is truly exciting! The first single and title track showed a familiar, yet amped-up AMARANTHE. Mechanical Illusion is quite different from what people have heard from us so far. Probably the heaviest track yet, a dystopian vision steeped in a darkened futuristic atmosphere, combined with a mega-catchy chorus that is likely to ring in your head for days. Brace yourselves, the illusion is upon us!” 

AMARANTHE recently released their new music video for the title track, The Nexus, which has racked up an impressive 916,000 views in just one month. The video is available now at this link. The video was directed by Patric Ullaeus, who has worked with names such as In Flames, Arch Enemy and Dimmu Borgir; he was also responsible for AMARANTHE video for The Hunger, the lead single from the band’s highly successful debut, now at a whopping 3.5 million YouTube views (and counting).

The Nexus was produced by Jacob Hansen (whose credits include Volbeat, Dreamshade & Ginger Wildheart, and who worked on AMARANTHE’s 2011 self-titled debut).

AMARANTHE: Andy – vocals, Jake E – vocals, Elize – vocals, Olof Mörck – guitars & keys, Morten Løwe Sørensen – drums, Johan Andreassen – bass

Gojira LIVE in the (Cradle of) Philthadelphia

The Welding Room plague is spreading in Philthy. More & more hacks are stealing from the original, the creative, the beacon of metal radio.

We’re undecided as to simultaneously take over Atlantic City and Philadelphia or conquer one at a time. Do you care?

Gojira @ TLA in Philadelphia. Unprofessional pictures!

Click link = magic.

May your nether regions tingle with excites.

Much love,

Regarding the cancelled dates, Dew-Scented commented,

“We apologize for any inconvenience this might produce and will be hopefully announcing re-scheduled dates for later this year very soon. However, we will still be appearing at Chaulnes Metal Fest 2013 since this show doesn’t clash with the other newly added dates. See you there”

DEW-SCENTED also finished tracking new studio recordings for a very special anniversary release, due out this spring.
In addition to the Testament tour, DEW-SCENTED confirmed their participation in the Full Metal Cruise, a week-long voyage featuring Kreator, Heaven Shall Burn, Firewind, Sabaton, Gamma Ray and Doro.
