We said from the get-go this record is 100% uncompromising Heavy Metal, and now you can hear it for yourselves!!!!”

Chris Broderick (guitars) further adds: “We spent a lot of time and effort on Birth and the Burial to get it to sound as good as it possibly could, and we are not only excited for its release this Friday, August 21st and the fact that everyone can stream it, but also to announce that we will be heading out on tour to support it in October!!! It is one thing to get a CD to sound great, but now we have to live up to that sound live as well, and I know from talking to Shawn, Henry, and Matt that we are going to bring it!!! The tour will be with our Metal Blade record label mates Allegaeon. I urge you to pick up the CD and then come see us live to compare and contrast!”
Allegaeon guitarist Greg Burgess adds: “We’re very excited to be a part of this tour.

|The 6th Annual GWAR B-Q was held this weekend in beautiful Richmond, Virginia. All Bohabs lucky enough to survive the event are in agreement; this was the best GWAR B-Q ever! Fans from across the globe made their way to Hadad’s Lake in Richmond to celebrate the 30th Birthday of intergalactic shock rock giants….GWAR!
The 3-day weekend of destruction and debauchery started off at The National with the B4BQ, featuring blistering performances from Coal Chamber, Fear Factory and every band from The Summer Slaughter Tour. After the show, hundreds of Bohabs kept the party going at GWAR’s own watering hole, the one and only GWARbar!
The weekend’s main event took place on Saturday, August 15th, under crystal clear skies at Hadad’s Lake. The water was cool, and the Oderus Ale was flowing like hot, delicious piss! In an uncharacteristic act of compassion, our Lords and Masters offered free GWATER to the delirious, heat stroking Bohabs, and this was no Woodstock…there were more than enough chemical toilets for all the pee pee and poo poo!
Riding high on the momentum from The GWAR B-Q, the Intergalactic Overlords are set to hit the road next week. The tour begins August 25th in Millvale, PA and ends September 19th in Toronto. Support on the tour will come from Butcher Babies and label-mates Battlecross, and this run will see the band playing all three Riot Fest dates (Denver, Chicago, Toronto) and the Befuddled Fest in New Albany, IL. Tickets for these dates are on sale now!
Following their appearance at the final Riot Fest in Toronto, GWAR will return to their arctic slumber for less than a month before they return to finish the desecration of the North American continent. This time, the band will be joined by Born of Osiris and once again their friends in Battlecross. This leg of the tour kicks off October 7th in Cincinnati, OH and wraps up November 28th in Orlando, FL. For the Canadian dates on the tour direct support will come from Cryptopsy. More dates will be added in the coming weeks, so don’t worry if your Intergalactic rock gods have yet to announce a date in your town. Tickets for these Fall shows go on sale Friday August 21st, but if you are a member of the GWAR Fan Club, you can get your tickets starting today direct from your Overlords at a reduced ticket processing fee by clicking the logo below or visiting gwar.missiontix.com.
GWAR promises an all new show that cannot be missed. All human scum are commanded to attend each and every show of the tour! So tell your bosses, spouses and screaming rug rats to suck it! Dedicate your life to GWAR!
The band is keeping the gory details of the show tightly under wraps, but guitarist Pustulus Maximus seems hell bent on leaking some information about what to expect…
“I have yet to grasp this concept of the internet and the spouting of self-important speeches by people in social media; the INTERNET MUST DIE, so GWAR will KILL IT!. Management tells me the internet is not a person that can be fought and killed, but they don’t know the true power of a Scumdog. WE KILL EVERYTHING!”

Cannibal Corpse announces fall headline tour with Cattle Decapitation and Soreption!

But they aren’t even close to being finished with 2015, yet. Cannibal Corpse have unveiled their plans for a massive US tour this fall. They are bringing a brutal package of bands with them across the United States beginning October 8th, and running through November 7th.

Cattle Decapitation vocalist Travis Ryan expresses the band’s excitement for these shows: “We’ve wanted to tour with Cannibal Corpse ever since we started touring and we’re glad that’s finally going to be a reality! Looking forward to making memories with these guys and Soreption!”

“A Skeletal Domain,” the latest full-length from American death metal icons, Cannibal Corpse, debuted at an astounding #32 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, making it the highest charting record in the band’s storied history! This is the band’s thirteenth full-length album. It was produced by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver) at Audio Hammer Studios in Flordia. The record boasts twelve ravenous tracks of confrontational, meticulously-executed ill-omened brutality as only Cannibal Corpse can deliver.
Cattle Decapitation‘s “The Anthropocene Extinction” was just released this past Friday, August 7th, and has earned massed praise from press and fans globally. Decibel Magazine commends, “abundant hooks, extremity meeting musicality, a diverse vocal performance, an almost surprisingly bittersweet tone, and hairpin temp shifts,” adding, “there’s always been a fine line between extremity and listenability and CATTLE DECAPITATION have marvelously tiptoed that line again… their command of craft has never been better.”
Swedish technical death metal unit, SOREPTION, released their “Engineering The Void” full-length last year via Unique Leader Records. A scrupulously-executed display of methodical genius, “Engineering The Void” spouts a wholly sophisticated barrage of Meshuggian riff sequences, obscure time signatures, head-jarring rhythms, and intervals of orchestral enormity all backed by the calloused growls of lead throat Fredrik Söderberg. The band’s latest North American jaunt follows their run earlier this year supporting Cryptopsy and Disgorge.

Artwork and Track Listing Revealed
|Almost six years have passed since the world saw a new studio album from Metal Icons W.A.S.P. This October 2nd, the wait ends, as Blackie Lawless and the legendary rockers W.A.S.P. will release their long awaited new album and Napalm Records debut Golgotha. Today the artwork and track listing have been revealed.
Frontman Blackie Lawless on the new album Golgotha:
“There are times in any band’s career that somehow all things mesh together. Their experiences, influences, and personal timing bring them into a common space. This has happened with this record. Four years in the making has provided direction, but even greater reflection. Golgotha, where Christ was crucified – Hebrew for “the place of the skull”.”
Golgotha is available for pre-order from the Napalm Records Webstore in North America HERE and Europe HERE.
Golgotha Track Listing:
2. Last Runaway
4. Miss You
5. Fallen Under
6. Slaves of the New World Order
7. Eyes of My Maker
8. Hero of the World
W.A.S.P. came out of the Los Angeles Metal scene in 1982 gaining notoriety for their shock rock antics. With a career spanning over 3 decades, 17 world tours, and now their 15th studio album, they are a metal band that has evolved in maturity without having lost their signature sound, unlike many of their peers from their origins. Golgotha will continue down the path that 2007’s Dominator and 2009’s Babylon started on, both in production style and theme. Years in the making, Golgotha will undoubtedly lead the listeners on the emotionally epic undertaking that W.A.S.P. has become acclaimed for!

Artwork, Track Listing and First Song Unveiled!
|Recent Napalm Records signees AUDIOTOPSY, the powerhouse foursome featuring guitarist Greg Tribbett (Mudvayne, Hell Yeah), drummer Matt McDonough (Mudvayne), vocalist Billy Keeton (Skrape) and bassist Perry Stern will release their debut album Natural Causes August 28th. Today the stunning artwork, track listing and first song have been revealed.
Get an exclusive first listen to the opening track from Natural Causes entitled “Headshot” courtesy of Loudwire HERE!
Natural Causes is available for pre-order via the Napalm Records Webstore HERE.
Self-produced at The Porch Studio in Orlando, Florida with engineer Tim Laud, the guys maintained their singular perspective with Natural Causes. “The focus was to write solid, hooky, big riff songs,” declares Greg. “We didn’t want to sound or look like every other band. It’s not supposed to be regular. We’re all building this vision together.” Merging intricate instrumentation with a seamless knack for melody, they conjured up a style as heavy as it is hypnotic. “We got a vibe going”, states Greg. You could call it ‘Progressive Hard Rock’.”
Album opener “Headshot” pairs a slithering riff and steamrolling percussion with an anthemic punch. “It’s from the point-of-view or the eyes of, not necessarily a soldier, but anybody who’s in battle and in the trenches”, states Billy. “Metaphorically speaking, it’s life through the eyes of somebody fighting a battle.”
With extensive tour plans in the works, it will undoubtedly be a very busy remaining 2015 and beyond for AUDIOTOPSY. For now, they urge you to simply close your eyes, open your mind, and let Natural Causes do the talking for them.
Natural Causes Track Listing:
2. All We Know
4. The Calling
5. H2O (Interlude)
7. Disguise Your Devils
8. Burn the Sky
10. Darken the Rainbow
11. Frozen Scars
12. Natural Causes (Outro)

WALLS OF JERICHO are asking their fans to record themselves saying the phrase “I Am Relentless”. The band will then take these clips and make them part of an intro for a song on the new album. Please email the audio clips to email@example.com. They can be iPhone or Smart Phone voice recordings.
The song is attached to the Relentless Foundation. The mission of the Relentless Foundation, is to build relationships, change lives by uniting strong men and women with even stronger children.
The Relentless Detroit Foundation was created to raise money, awareness and support for local MI families with children diagnosed with life threatening illnesses.
The foundation raises the bulk of the money donated by hosting a yearly powerlifting meet. Power lifters from the United States and Canada come together for this event after spending months training and raising funds to support the families involved. This event is modeled after a powerlifting fundraiser that takes place annually in Minnesota.
Relentless Detroit and Relentless Minnesota work closely to support each other during both events.
Leading up to the Relentless Detroit powerlifting meet other fundraisers are coordinated by Relentless Detroit supporters. These events help cover operating costs associated with the meet, in addition to funds for the families. The events that take place outside of the two day powerlifting meet also facilitate relationships between the lifters, families and everyone involved.
Our goal is to not only raise money for these families, but also help strengthen and add to their existing support system.
Seemingly overnight, stylized bands playing strains of melodic hardcore have sailed up the pop charts. But for WALLS OF JERICHO things have played out a bit differently. During the scene’s ascension, the band’s members have all but shunned the idea of a genre tag or an “image” and have instead focused their energies on making music that will survive strictly on its musical merits.
Most bands in the world can be lumped into one category or another, they are shuffled, redefined, and in that way they begin to lose the qualities that could make them important or meaningful. The greatest bands, the most influential or memorable, are the ones who don’t try to fill the role set for them, who don’t pursue anything other than the desire to make music, and the need to express that art to an audience. From the start this has been the mind-set of WALLS OF JERICHO.
