Metal Blade Records News & Tour Update
AS I LAY DYING release new video for “Paralyzed” from “Decas”
As I Lay Dying ended 2011, the year of their tenth anniversary as a band, with an extremely successful headlining tour. The Decade of Destruction Tour ran November-December through the US. While on the tour, the band captured live footage from several shows. The footage was edited by the band’s own Nick Hipa into what has become the band’s next video: Paralyzed. The video encapsulates As I Lay Dying in a special moment in time; their tenth anniversary tour in front of sold-out crowds full of devoted fans. The video is available now via the band’s youtube channel HERE.
THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER premiere “Moonlight Equilibrium” video on BloodyDisgusting.com
The Black Dahlia Murder’s long-awaited video for Moonlight Equilibrium is now live on BloodyDisgusting.com, your #1 source for horror! The video is a David Brodsky-directed nod to old-school horror films with a much more graphic approach. The video’s content aptly fits the lycanthropic lyric concept set against a bawdy Victorian back drop. The result: a chilling and entertaining slice of mini-horror that metal fans and horror-enthusiasts will enjoy. Watch Moonlight Equilibrium HERE.
The Black Dahlia Murder is currently in Japan for a string of shows before heading down under for the Soundwave Festival. Once they’re back stateside, a full US tour kicks off on March 24th with death metal legends Nile, along with Skeletonwitch and Hour of Penance as support. The tour finishes as part of the annual New England Metal and Hardcore fest in Worcester, MA on April 20th. Tickets are on sale now and can be found online at the band’s facebook page and at your local venue.

ANGEL WITCH announce new album “As Above, So Below”
Legendary British metal act, Angel Witch, are proud to unveil their new album, As Above, So Below. The Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost/The Gates Of Slumber) produced album unites newly-penned yet timeless-sounding material such as ‘Geburah’, ‘The Horla’, ‘Brainwashed’ and ‘Upon This Cord’ with four long-lost tracks from the classic-era. ‘Dead Sea Scrolls’ and ‘Witching Hour’ both date back to 1983/’84, whilst ‘Into The Dark’ and ‘Guillotine’ are older still. Both were live favorites during Angel Witch’s late-1970s heyday, indeed ‘Guillotine’ was actually intended to have appeared on the Angel Witch album.
