THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Streaming Track From New Album

The Black Dahlia Murder’s sixth full-length album, Everblack, will be released worldwide in June 2013. The album art for Everblack was painted by renowned artist Nick Keller and recording was completed at Audiohammer Studios (lead guitars and vocals), Rustbelt Studios (drums), and Regal Fecal (guitar and bass). Mixing was handled by Jason Suecof and Ryan Williams, mastering was completed by Alan Douches at West Westside. Trevor Strnad’s horror-inspired lyrics persist on Everblack, beginning with In Hell is Where She Waits for Me, a reference to the murder from which the band took for their moniker.

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER announce Everblack; first track streaming now

Vocalist Trevor Strnad elaborates on the lyrical concepts:

“The opening track is the first actual song we’ve done about the Black Dahlia. This one is for the fans, they’ve been asking for this to happen for a long time. The story takes place at the Elizabeth Short’s rain drenched funeral, where her killer in attendance… just one of the many macabre tales woven into the fabric of Everblack. Subterranean flesh-farming vampires, vine rape, Jeffery Dahmer, amputation… it’s all here! With this sixth slab of sickness I tried my best to honor the band’s legacy and write lyrics that will keep the legions of horror fiends perspiring with fear.”

The debut single, Into the Everblack, is streaming now on metalblade.com/bdm. To request THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER on The Welding Room, send Death Threats/Complaints to TheWeldingRoom@gmail.com.

Also available at metalblade.com/bdm are a variety of limited edition pre-order bundles. Fans can grab Everblack on a triple gatefold double LP with purple/white marbled vinyl, along with “crime scene bundles.” An evidence pack, which includes toe tags, deceased band member photos, spent shotgun shells, and more can be viewed now.

THE OCEAN Streaming Instrumental Version of New Album

In celebration of its forthcoming release, just three weeks away, Spin Magazine is currently streaming the instrumental version of THE OCEAN‘s Pelagial in its entirety!

Written, recorded, and intended to-be-performed-live as one single 53-minute piece of music, Pelagial is a multifaceted conceptual musical voyage that begins at the surface of the ocean and plunges through all five pelagic depth zones: epipelagic, mesopelagic, bathyalpelagic, abyssopelagic, and hadopelagic. In synch with diminishing light and increasing pressure as one dives or sinks deeper into the ocean, the album begins rather light and progressively gets heavier and slows as the band reaches the unfathomable depths of the hadopelagic zone, characterized by complete darkness and a thousandfold increased pressure as compared to surface level. The tracks, or episodes, are connected by interludes of underwater sounds and samples taken from old submarine movies, which give the album a claustrophobic “Das Boot“-kind of atmosphere.

 

“There are track marks, and there are actual songs built into this larger structure, but the whole album is a journey rather than a number of loose tracks, some riffs appear in the first two minutes of the album and then reappear 30 minutes later,” comments guitarist Robin Staps.

Delve into the sonic depths of Pelagial, courtesy of Spin Magazine, HERE or request The Ocean on The Welding Room (Tuesday’s 3:00-7:00pm & Thursday’s 5:00-9:00pm ET). Send your Death Threats/Complaints to TheWeldingRoom@gmail.com now.

Pelagial was mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Witchcraft) at Fascination Street Studios in Örebrö, Sweden, and firmly stands as THE OCEAN’s deepest, most challenging entry to their winding catalog of sound exploration. Pelagial will be released as a double CD, which includes both vocal and instrumental versions of the album, on April 26/29 (Europe) and April 30 (North America/World) through Metal Blade Records. For preorder info, studio footage and more, visit the band’s Official Metal Blade Page.

Additionally, preorders are currently available for the vinyl edition of the album, released through Pelagic Records. The vinyl edition features two separate gatefolds with related artwork (by Seldon Hunt), holding four 10″ vinyl records in different colors! Order yours now at: http//www.pelagic-records.com/vinyl.

In related news, THE OCEAN will return to North America this summer as part of the 7th annual Summer Slaughter Tour, presented by Indie Merch Store, ESP and Guitar World. Set to run from July 19 through August 24, the band will appear alongside The Dillinger Escape Plan, Animals As Leaders, Periphery, Norma Jean, Cattle Decapitation, Revocation, Aeon and more. Official tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

SHINING (NORWAY) New Album Via PROSTHETIC RECORDS in North America

The avant-garde Norwegian group SHINING — whose unique “blackjazz” hybrid of extreme progressive metal, experimental jazz-fusion and industrial precision has earned extensive international acclaim – will release One One One, their first studio album in three years, this spring. The album, which is available now for pre-order, will be released by Prosthetic Records in North America digitally on April 23, with physical releases on CD and gatefold LP to follow soon after. A teaser for the forthcoming music video for first single I Won’t Forget can be seen at this location.

One One One digital release set for April 23; pre-order for CD and LP available now

Mixed and co-produced by Sean Beaven (NIN, Marilyn Manson, Slayer) and mastered by Tom Baker at Precision Mastering (Avenged Sevenfold, Deftones, Ministry), One One One sees SHINING expanding on the musical palettes introduced on 2010’s landmark Blackjazz. That album – hailed by the New York Times as “a radioactive alloy of jazz and black metal” – scored a Norwegian Grammy nomination, cracked the Norwegian Top 10 and saw the group tour around the globe, from high-profile U.S. events like SXSW and CMJ to the large stages of European summer festivals. One such performance was captured on Live Blackjazz, an ambitious CD/DVD released on 11.11.11 that saw the group perform the album in full before a sold-out crowd in their home country.

SHINING has already performed One One One live in its entirety in Norway, after which they were awarded the prestigious Statoil scholarship – essentially a grant to be used toward international touring. Accordingly, the band is already making plans to return to America, where their 2012 SXSW performance earned rave reviews.

It will be the latest step on an unorthodox career path that began with two acoustic jazz albums released at the turn of the century. From there, SHINING began to incorporate progressive rock and experimental metal influences on their next two releases, after which they famously collaborated with progressive black metal Vikings Enslaved on a concerto commissioned by a top European jazz festival. That union helped to influence the musical direction of Blackjazz, which in turn begat One One One.

“While One One One is meant to complete the Blackjazz Trilogy, it’s also definitely the catchiest and most immediate music we’ve ever recorded, thereby paving the way for another bright and brand new version of ourselves,” says SHINING front man Jørgen Munkeby.

“The idea this time around was to make a series of jazz-metal hits with no fillers, hence the name of the album, and I believe we’ve managed to do just that. I have never been as proud of an album as I am with this one.”

The future is not only bright — it’s SHINING.

One One One track listing:
1. I Won’t Forget
2. The One Inside
3. My Dying Drive
4. Off The Hook
5. Blackjazz Rebels
6. How Your Story Ends
7. The Hurting Game
8. Walk Away
9. Paint The Sky Black
