Per Nilsson comments: “I thought to myself… am I allowed to fuse death metal with AOR, and go extreme in both directions? I didn’t ask for permission, I just went and did it, and I’m pretty excited to hear what people are gonna think about it.”


Henrik Ohlsson adds: “Limits to Infinity” unveils the malevolent plan of the elite, the hidden hand, and their discoveries regarding the secrets of the universe. The lyric elaborates on the decision makers’ long-term plan to merge with machines and colonize other planets.”

Commented guitarist Per Nilsson: “The lyrical concept that Henrik came up with for The Singularity trilogy is huge in scope, complex and awe-inspiring, and naturally the music I wrote needed to follow suit – and it is with great pride that we can now present ‘Phase I – Neohumanity’, the first part in the most progressive and elaborate project in the history of Scar Symmetry. What an awesome way of celebrating our 10th anniversary!”

The cover artwork for The Singularity (Phase I – Neohumanity) was created by Mircea Gabriel Eftemie.

Available October 7th on Rigor Mortis Records

Twenty-Three years after their last record, and nineteen months after the tragic loss of guitarist Mike Scaccia, DFW TX Speed/Thrash Metal pioneers, RIGOR MORTIS, will release their fourth and final studio album – Slaves to the Grave (Due October 7th via Rigor Mortis Records). This marks the bands first studio album in 23 years, and the first with the classic original line up (Mike Scaccia – guitar, Casey Orr – Bass, Bruce Corbitt – Vocals, and Harden Harrison on drums), since their 1988 eponymous debut album.

Slaves to the Grave is available for pre-order HERE.

So far one song from Slaves to the Grave has been released, the song “Flesh for Flies” it can be streamed HERE.

Today RIGOR MORTIS presents the second offering from their final masterpiece.  Decibel Magazine’s Deciblog” is hosting an exclusive premiere of the song “Poltergeist”.  Get a first listen to “Poltergeist” HERE.

With help from their fans, via an IndieGoGo fundraising campaign, the band is releasing Slaves To The Grave themselves on their own label, Rigor Mortis Records. EVERYONE who contributes to the fundraiser will have their name included in a special “thank you” list on the cd! The campaign ends on Aug. 28th, so there’s only a few days left to help out, get your name on the cd, and pick up some killer swag, including a limited run blood splattered vinyl version of the record with alternate cover art, and an exclusive Mike Scaccia tribute t-shirt.

You can contribute here: IndieGoGo.

Two special shows in support of the album have been announced including a CD Release Party and an appearance at the Housecore Horror Film Fest. The surviving members of Rigor Mortis will be performing as Wizards of Gore at both events.



Saturday Sept 27th - Curtain Club- Dallas, TX

Featuring Dead Horse, Wizards of Gore (RIGOR MORTIS), Dead Earth Politics, and more tba. The new RIGOR MORTIS record will be available for purchase at this show.



Oct. 23rd – 26th – Emo’s – Austin, TX


The second annual event boasts underground and classic horror screenings and merch, full reunion of cast from the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre 1 and 2, as well as a great line up of bands like Superjoint Ritual, GWAR, Danzig, Samhain, Wizards Of Gore (RIGOR MORTIS), Warbeast, Portal, Randy Blythe, Satyricon, Eyehategod, Cattle Decapitation, Unearth, Acid Witch, and many more

Recorded less than a year before Mike’s passing, Slaves To The Grave was to going to herald the band’s long overdue comeback. In February 2012, RIGOR MORTIS entered 13th Planet Studios in El Paso, and recorded the 10 tracks that would become STTG. The artwork was done Michael Broom

The subject matter hasn’t strayed much. Twisted tales of horror and woe, monsters and madmen, warfare and plague abound! The tracks are fast and heavy as one would expect, but there is also a maturity and growth that only comes with age and experience. Musically, STTG draws from a legacy of brutal influence. The Speed and Thrash Metal that RIGOR MORTIS cut their teeth on is evident throughout the record in the intensity and velocity of tracks like “Flesh For Flies“, but also, one could argue, are influences such as Italian horror soundtracks by Goblin, as heard on the outro solo of “Poltergeist“. While STTG was very much a group effort, and all four came together like a fist to crush all doubt, It has to be said, of course, that the highlight of this record, and indeed RIGOR MORTIS as a whole musically, is Mike Scacciaʼs incredible guitar playing. His freakish speed picking and beautiful sense of melody is mesmerizing. His solos are stupefying. Mike’s style was much closer to Paganini, than to say, Mustaine or Dimebag. He was unique.

Without question, this record contains some of Mike’s finest work. In his zone and with no restraints, he delivered some absolutely stellar performances. His solo at the end of “Blood Bath”, for instance, is absolutely breathtaking, exposing more heart and soul than precious few of his contemporaries possess. RIGOR MORTIS dedicates this record to Mike Scaccia 1965-2012.

Slaves to the Grave Track Listing:

1. Poltergeist 

2. Rain of Ruin 

3. Flesh for Flies 

4.The Infected 

5. Blood Bath 

6. Ancient Horror 

7. Fragrance of Corpse 

8. Curse of the Draugr 

9. Sacramentum Gladiatorum 

10. Ludus Magnus 


Produced by Mike Scaccia and RIGOR MORTIS

First Samples of New Music Available

Available October 28th on Relapse Records


OBITUARY fall into that rare category of living legends who’ve still got the inimitable spark that made them so special in the first place – the agonized, pulverizing drone of their bludgeoning, unstoppable tank-tread rhythms is something no one else has been able to adequately copy in two decades of trying.” 


Death metal legends OBITUARY make their Relapse debut with Inked In Blood, their 9th full length LP.  Inked in Blood will be released October 28th in North America (UK/World October 27th and Germany/Benelux/Finland on October 24th) via Relapse Records.

Today the first taste of Inked in Blood has been made available in an exclusive album teaser video.  Samples from three brand new tracks can be heard in the video, which is available for viewing HERE.


The riffs, groove, snarl and rage are as fierce as ever, putting most all other contemporary death metal bands to shame.  OBITUARY are THE definitive death metal band, and Inked In Blood is an instant classic amongst their already storied catalog.  OBITUARY are both the originators and the torchbearers of the genre!  Inked In Blood is the sound of true death metal kings reclaiming their throne!!! 


In support of their new album, OBITUARY will be hitting the road this fall.  They will begin with an appearance at East Coast Tsunami in Reading, PA on September 27th. Following those dates, OBITUARY hits the road with Carcass, Exhumed and Noisem from October 28th through November 9th.

Relapse Records Debut The Tyranny of Will out September 16th

IRON REAGAN’s Relapse debut The Tyranny Of Will is a 24 song wrecking ball of hardcore- punk/thrash fury.  The album was recorded with guitarist Phil Hall at Blaze of Torment Studios in Richmond, VA and self-produced plus it was mixed by Converge’s Kurt Ballou.  The album will be released September 16th in North America, (Sept 15 (UK/World), Sept 12th (Germany/Benelux/World). The cover art was done by Alexis Maybree AKA NevaSafe.


So far IRON REAGAN has released one song “Miserable Failure” (HERE) and a lyric video for the song “Eyeball Gore” (HERE).  Today IRON REAGAN debuts the song “Four More Years” exclusively via Loudwire.  Check out the song HERE.


Bassist Rob Skotis on the new song:


Elect yourself to sit down with four more beers while having your ear drums sensually assaulted by our new track.”


Drummer Ryan Parish added:


“And it’s the classic long song at the end of the album! A whopping 4 minutes!”


The Tyranny of Will is available for pre-order in multiple configurations and formats.  The album will be issued as a standard CD, Deluxe CD that features a bonus track, cassette, LP and Digital Download. 


The album can pre-ordered from Relapse Records HERE and from Bandcamp HERE

In practice IRON REAGAN are WAY more than just a super group project. They have toured the world several times over leveling audiences with their furious live show.  IRON REAGAN is a fully formed raging band that have delivered one of the heaviest hardcore records of the year that is guaranteed to be on the top of both metalheads’ and punk rockers’ year end lists.

Metal Temple:  10/10 “Ever listened to an album, band or song that just blows you away at the first musical note? Well this is what Atlanta Heavy Metal outfit HALCYON WAY have done in the form of their fourth installment appropriately named “Conquer”….There was not one single song on the album that I disliked; so far it is one of my favourite Metal albums of 2014. A huge treat for Metal fans everywhere.”


New Noise Magazine:  5/5 “I absolutely recommend it to people like myself who love catchy choruses, ripping grooves, powerful melodies and mesmerizing solos. Without saying another word, Conquer is by and large the perfect musical package this year for me and that really says a lot.”


Metal Underground:  4.5/5 “the true meaning of “Conquer” is that Halcyon Way has struck a chord of near perfection with an infallible modern metal sound.”


BraveWords:  8/10 “12 high-caliber songs decorated with catchy choruses, huge hooks, chugging riffs and soaring vocal harmonies.”


Dangerdog:  4/5 “if this album isn’t a huge hit for Halcyon Way, then there’s some serious trouble in the Americal metal scene. Recommended.”


Metal Wani:  9.3/10 “a great achievement”


MetalReviews.com:  91/100 “Album Of The Month” – “their crowning achievement…one of the more unique bands in metal”


Dead Rhetoric:  9/10 “should be enough to conquer any doubts you may have…massive crossover appeal…catchy, melodic, and thrashy”


Amps & Green Screens:  9.5/10 “Clearly on this, album number four, Halcyon Way means business, and Gods help those who stand in their way….I truly believe that when Conquer makes its way into everyone’s ears it will be a huge success for them.”


Music Frenzy: “the band continues writing with dominating passion and strength, and for this records punches the ferocity level through the roof.”

Award Winning Atlanta, Georgia Progressive Metallers HALCYON WAY have released their new album Conquer today via Nightmare Records. The album will be available in Europe on September 19th in Europe/Rest Of World via Massacre Records.  The album can be ordered on the band’s website HERE and on Amazon


Metal Insider is hosting an exclusive full album stream of Conquer.  Listen to it HERE.


During the recording of Conquer, the band filmed a series of in-studio videos documenting the process.  The first one can be viewed HERE.


The band recently completed work on a lyric video for the song “Home”.  It can be viewed HERE.  In addition the video for the song “Web of Lies” from the new album can be viewed HERE.


The band’s second release show is set for August 23, 2014 in Atlanta, GA. 


Tickets for the event can be purchased at www.halcyonway.com/tickets


HALCYON WAY was founded in 2001 and released its successful debut album “A Manifesto For Domination” in 2008 (via Nightmare Records).  That was followed up by the critically acclaimed “Building The Towers” in 2010, and the sequel to that release, “IndoctriNation”, was released in 2011.


The band toured relentlessly over the last few years, going out with Fozzy in the UK, Delain for a full European tour, and North American tours with U.D.O., Saxon, and Fates Warning. 


HALCYON WAY‘s sound cannot be neatly slotted into any sub-category of metal; but it can be described as heavy, catchy, technical, and above all, focused on mature song craft.  The band draws influences & inspiration from many metal bands from Megadeth to Dream Theater, Testament or Chimaira.  The focus of the songwriting is on catchy hooks, vocal harmonies à la King’s X or Stryper, and on heavy, technical, but ultimately accessible instrumentation.


Conquer Track Listing:

1. Conquer

2. Web Of Lies

3. Conceived In Torment

4. Home

5. World Comes Undone

6. Militant

7. Hatred Is My Cause

REVOCATION have spent the last eight years converting fans to their cause with four full length albums, an EP with Scion AV, and a charismatic live show led by guitarist/vocalist Dave Davidson. The Boston-based band also features the staggeringly talented lineup of: Dan Gargiulo on guitar, Brett Bamberger on bass, and Phil Dubois on drums. REVOCATION has firmly been established as one of the genre’s finest and will continue their campaign as part of the Metal Blade Records roster. Their fifth album, “Deathless,” is a fitting debut for the label, and a definitive statement of intent from the band.


“Deathless” is set for an October 14th release, today the artwork, track listing and first single which is the title track, have been unveiled.  The album is available in CD, 2LP and digital formats.  Get a first listen to the song HERE and be sure to pre-order the album in one of the exclusive bundle packages including: CD + T-Shirt, 2LP + T-Shirt, and the deluxe package with CD, 2LP and T-Shirt.

Deathless” was recorded with acclaimed producer Zeuss at Planet Z studios in Massachusetts. The album is ten tracks of ambitious, catchy, and undeniably heavy material. Musically, cuts like “Madness Opus” showcase a more deliberate REVOCATION – restrained, if even moderately so, to deliver a slow, near-dirge like track. Alternatively, the title track highlights the diversity of Davidson’s vocals with a catchy chorus. It’s an earworm the likes of which the band had only previously hinted. The rest of the album offers a refreshing variety of music and truly feels like an “album”, rather than a collection of similar tracks. This is a refinement, achieved only through years of focusing on their craft.

Davidson adds, “Collectively, we feel that “Deathless” is our finest offering yet. The songs are incredibly varied and each one showcases a different element of the band. Technically, everyone is in top form on this record, as well, and we really pushed ourselves to deliver the best performances possible on all fronts. This is a new chapter and a new beginning for the band; we can’t wait for this record to be unleashed in October!”

Lyrically, “Deathless” addresses life on the road and the band’s commitment to touring, followed by even more touring. “Madness Opus” made its live debut when REVOCATION toured with DevilDriver and Whitechapel during the summer of 2014. Davidson discusses the track: “The crowd response for that tune has been overwhelmingly positive. It’s one of the heaviest songs we’ve ever written, hands down, and has been a blast to play live. Lyrically, it’s about one of my favorite HP Lovecraft stories, “The Music Of Erich Zann”. Fans of unnamable cosmic horror and punishing death metal will not be disappointed!”

Revocation begins touring in support of “Deathless” in September with Crowbar in North America, followed by a full European tour with new label mates Cannibal Corpse and Aeon. Much is more is set to come – this is the beginning of a new era for Revocation.

“Deathless” Track Listing:

1. A Debt Owed to the Grave

2. Deathless

3. Labyrinth of Eyes

4. Madness Opus

5. Scorched Earth Policy

6. The Blackest Reaches

7. The Fix

8. United in Helotry

While Northern German melodic metal band Mob Rules are currently busy applying the finishing touches to their boxed anniversary set Timekeeper (release date: 13 October 2014, Germany: 10 October 2014, US/Canada: 28 October 2014), the musicians have revealed initial details about this special package which consists of two CDs, a single and a live DVD. CD 1 has Mob present the 15 most important songs from their previous eight releases, among them classics such as ‘Black Rain’, ‘Hollowed Be Thy Name’, ‘Astral Hand’, ‘Rain Song’ (Live) and ‘Cannibal Nation’. 

CD 2 is the fulfillment of the band members’ longstanding dream: “We’ve always wanted to invite guests to the studio who have been important to us and our development and who have become friends,” explains drummer Nikolas Fritz, referring to a long list of renowned musicians who have contributed to Timekeeper, among them Udo Dirkschneider (U.D.O.), Bernhard Weiß & Marco Wriedt (both Axxis), Amanda Somerville & Sascha Paeth (both Avantasia), Peavy Wagner (Rage), Michael Ehré (Gamma Ray), Herman Frank (Accept), Corvin Bahn (Uli Jon Roth, Saxon), Herbie Langhans (Sinbreed, Seventh Avenue), Stefan Lill (Vanden Plas) Chitral Somapala (ex-Firewind, Red Circuit) and Peter Knorn (Victory). These artists can be heard on newly recorded Mob Rules classics, the cover versions ‘Lights Out’ (UFO) and ‘Run With The Wolf’ (Rainbow) as well as two brand-new songs which Mob Rules composed exclusively for Timekeeper. “This boxed set reflects the band’s past, present and future,” comments Nikolas Fritz.

Timekeeper is rounded off by a DVD featuring recordings from the 2011 Mob Rules performance at the Prog Power US festival in Atlanta/USA plus extensive bonus material. Nikolas Fritz: “Our fans kept asking about those film recordings, that’s why we have now had the material cut and its sound mixed. A great souvenir, also for ourselves.” 

Real eye-catchers are the cover artwork and 44-page booklet which are part of the elaborate box, featuring scores of photos from all phases of Mob Rules’ 20-year career, a special feature being the fact that each one of the limited boxes has been numbered individually by hand, making this boxed set a very special fan item.

Announces Signing With Napalm Records

Napalm Records is pleased to announce the signing of Los Angeles, California’s COAL CHAMBER, a band that stood as leaders at the forefront of new genres, constantly reinventing their sound and not fitting any mold except their own.   With sold out tours, and millions of records sold, COAL CHAMBER owned the Scene from the mid nineties until their tumultuous breakup in May of 2002.  Now they have returned to take their place at the top where they once were and intend to be there for years to come.  Call it what you want, “The Return”, “The Second Coming of”, but no matter what you call it, be prepared COAL CHAMBER to rule again.


Following a 12-plus year breakup the band reunited in 2011 and 2013 for Festival shows as well as an extensive North American tour. Now all four members of COAL CHAMBER (Dez Fafara, Nadja Peulen, Mikey Cox, Meegs) have decided the time was right to begin work on a new COAL CHAMBER album.  The band is currently working on the new material that they hope to release next year.


COAL CHAMBER spoke about their new record and signing with Napalm Records:


“How many times do you get a second chance at anything in life?

We toured the world, it was insane and crowds came out in force and we had a blast! For this I’m so appreciative!


Now….. It’s time to release a NEW COAL CHAMBER RECORD!

The Vibe between us all is positive AND we’ve assembled a killer team around us!


“Now with NAPALM RECORDS on board get ready for a heavy, explosion from COAL CHAMBER!  We’ve evolved and so has the music, from the demo music I’ve heard you’re gonna sink your TEETH into this! Stay tuned!” 

Dez Fafara


“It’s been a long time coming but the wait is over!  There are no words to describe how excited I am to be working on the new COAL CHAMBER record!!!  I can’t wait to see all your faces when we rock this album out! Stay tuned!!!”




“This is the first time in a long time that writing and recording a record feels right. Extremely grateful and excited for this new chapter in the world of COAL CHAMBER!! New music from CC is something we can’t wait to share with the many loyal fans that have stuck it out through everything!!! The evolution of COAL CHAMBER has begun!”  

Mikey Cox


“I’m so excited to be making music with my brothers and sister, and to the loyal fans who’ve been waiting for this! It’s been a long time coming, but the pieces of the puzzle are finally aligned right. The friendship, the camaraderie, the vibe of the band is perfect now. Can’t wait to unleash on the world!”



Napalm Records Vice President Thomas Caser on the signing of COAL CHAMBER:


“Rarely you get the chance to work with a band that has been a pioneer of a whole genre. We are thrilled and proud to get this chance with COAL CHAMBER! A new chapter of the band’s history is being written and Napalm Records is committed to make it the most successful!”


More info regarding the new album will be revealed soon.
