The post NAPALM DEATH – Announce new album title and release date; 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise! appeared first on Headbang or GTFO.
Vocalist Mark ‘Barney’ Greenway chimed in as follows in regards to the album’s title and concept:
“Sometimes you have to ponder long and hard for an album title, but following the Rana Plaza disaster of last year (collapse of a textile sweatshop building in Bangladesh), it spurred me on to try and craft an exposé of slave labour in the modern world (and the surrounding conditions propping it up).
Some in power like to declare that slavery is consigned to the history books. But if you look beneath the surface it is alive and well in many different forms – it just has a different face now, and exists in ways that may seem ethically ambiguous. Using the terminology of evolution particularly interests us, so in this case the ‘Apex Predator’ represents those who bring the slavery to bear (and capitalise from it), and the ‘Easy Meat’ is of therefore those who feel they have no option but to comply.
Fittingly, the music on ‘Apex Predator – Easy Meat’ is punishing. We feel it’s more ambient, more expansive, more unsettlingly discordant than ever, and importantly, still extremely rampant at excessive speed. We hope in every respect – both musically and lyrically – this album will make your eyes burn with the harsh sonics and harsh visions of the dumping ground of globalisation.”
Some song titles already revealed are “Copulating Snakes”, “Dear Slum Landlord” (aired at Roadburn 2014), “What Is Past Is Prologue” and “Stunt Your Growth”.
Additionally, NAPALM DEATH have recently been announced to appear at 2015′s edition of the 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise in the Caribbean (Florida / Jamaica) from January 22nd to 26th alongside bands like Arch Enemy, Behemoth, Blind Guardian, Cannibal Corpse, Municipal Waste and many more.

The post ANTROPOMORPHIA releases uncensored and censored video for “Nekrovaginal Secretions”! appeared first on Headbang or GTFO.
At the same place you can check out more AntropomorphiA audio and order your copy of the brand new record. The uncensored version of the S. Roth directed “Nekrovaginal Secretions” is streaming exclusively on antropomorphia-official.com.
The band comments: “We are proud to announce the visual accompaniment for the gospel ‘Nekrovaginal Secretions’. It’s a visual reference to a macabre love story, erotic rituals and a sexual attraction to the dead.“
“Rites Of Perversion” is the successor to “Evangelivm Nekromantia,”an album that waws followed by prominent festival performances, including appearances at Neurotic Deathfest and Extremefest, and more. Because of the violent and occult nature of the topics in AntropomorphiA‘s music, the album drew the attention of the German authorities, almost resulting in having the album banned completely from the shelves in that country.

The post Hope Drone Sign to Relapse Records; Complete Sophomore Album appeared first on Headbang or GTFO.
After supporting acts like Neurosis, Deafheaven, Caspian and Rosetta in Australia, the band recorded their sophomore record once again with engineer Christopher Brownbill. The yet-to-be-titled album will see it’s release via Relapse in the Spring of 2015.
Guitarist Karl Hartwig commented on the signing and the upcoming material:
“We’re stoked to be welcomed into the Relapse family and have our records released by the label that is responsible for some of our favourite releases. The record was recorded at the soon to be defuct Wavelength Studios with our engineer Christopher Brownbill. We really wanted to push ourselves with this record and spent much longer crafting songs with a greater dynamic and depth to them, both in terms of songwriting and how we approached capturing the songs. We aimed for a more live sounding recording that was still rich in atmosphere and I think we’ve achieved something that is true to both of these elements of the band.”
Stay tuned for more news and updates on HOPE DRONE and stream their self-titled debut at this location.

Listen to Volume IV’s skull-shattering 2014 release, Long In The Tooth, right here:
Watch the haunting video for “Awake The Dreamer,” which premiered on MetalSucks:
With equal parts elegant beauty and steamrolling aggression, Volume IV serve up a piece of ear candy for the ages with Long In The Tooth. This first release with Ripple Music is a concise, 36-minute thrill ride of swampy metal heroics, featuring heavy grooves, classic bluesy stoner riffs, and an overall impending sense of doom. These boys bring back the old school attitude of musical sensibility, working hard to master your instrument, and taking pride in creating a wide pallet of musical styles: Thunderous drumming locked tight within the pocket, bass guitar providing a dense foundation for the thick guitar and gritty yet melodic vocals that lay on top. In a world where everything is mechanized, click-tracked and auto-tuned, Volume IV does it the only way, the honest way, straight from the gut.
Individually the members of Volume IV have shared the stage with legendary acts such as Motörhead, Iron Maiden, Danzig, Mastodon, Corrosion Of Conformity and Down just to name a few. Led by singer/guitarist Joe Carpenter and filled out by bassist Blake Parris and drummer Troy King, Volume IV has stunned the metal world with one of the most anticipated releases of the year.
“What draws us to Volume IV is their willingness to step a bit outside the confines of what you might normally expect from a group of stoner/sludge/whatever beardos and longhairs.”
“The riff is heavy and the groove is huge, it’s biker metal done perfectly. We mentioned this release was highly anticipated, but it surpassed even our expectations. Definitely a top ten album of the year candidate.”

The post HATE ETERNAL announce new drummer appeared first on Headbang or GTFO.
The twenty-five year old Westmoreland has already been playing drums for more than twenty years, and touring internationally for the past seven with the likes of FALLUJAH, BURNING THE MASSES, ENFOLD DARKNESS, OCEANO and more. Recent tour footage of Westmoreland can be viewed here, while a collage of some recent behind-the-scenes studio footage and further details can be found at SickDrummer.com.
HATE ETERNAL founder and principal member Erik Rutan (guitar, vocals) comments on Westmoreland joining the band, “Chason is such an amazing talent and a very determined guy. He came down to try out in June and literally blew us away! We bonded instantly musically and personally, and JJ and I knew he was the right guy and drummer for Hate Eternal. Chason has a high motor, hits hard, plays fast and is a very diverse and dynamic player. The drums on this album have a very primal and visceral feel to them and I think he did a tremendous job on the recording. I cannot wait for us to get on tour and deliver the goods!”
Westmoreland comments on joining the band and his contribution to the new album, “I am extremely honored to join Hate Eternal. The new material is very challenging and has a lot going on. I put everything I had into this album and I’m very excited about the results. I cannot wait to see what the future holds and get on the road with our new album!”
The legendary death metal band recently announced their signing to Season of Mist. Widely considered one of the leading bands in the worldwide death metal scene for over eighteen years, HATE ETERNAL’s five prior full-length albums are considered crucial genre touchstones, and the band is a proven headliner across five continents.
HATE ETERNAL (Rutan [guitar, vocals], Hrubovcak [bass/vocals], and Westmoreland [drums]) are currently holed up in Rutan’s Mana Recording studio (CANNIBAL CORPSE, MOUNTAIN GOATS, GOATWHORE) recording a new album that will be released in early 2015.
Rutan comments, “The recording process has been fantastic so far. I’ve never felt so focused and determined on a Hate Eternal record, and I know that this will be an album our listeners and supporters will truly appreciate. It represents an important milestone for me personally since 15 years ago both Hate Eternal began recording it’s first album and Mana Recording Studios was born. We have so much more news to share with you over the coming months. We’re super proud of what we’ve accomplished creatively, and excited at the prospect of releasing what we feel is our most powerful Hate Eternal material to date.”
