Baptists: Second Album 'Bloodmines' Due For September Release Through Southern Lord
Monday, 02 June 2014 16:56

Vancouver's Baptists recently completed work on their second full-length album, the follow-up to their 2013 debut Bushcraft. Entitled Bloodmines, the new album was recorded at Godcity Studios in Salem, Massachusetts with with Kurt Ballou and will be released via Southern Lord worldwide in September.
 
Like its predecessor, Bloodmines is a fast, exhilarating album of rage, oozing with genuine raw emotion and punk rock fury. Shards of feedback make way for fast powerful riffs and savage vocals, whilst explosive drumming pumps blood around the band's beating heart. On album tracks like "Vistas", "Calling" and the title track, "Bloodmines", the pace changes, revealing powerful, almost anthemic, jagged noise rock akin to influential San Diego post-hardcore band Drive Like Jehu and similar acts which go beyond the two minute mark. Discordant guitar melodies and abrasive vocal passages are elongated, still volatile but perhaps allowing for further contemplation of the band's underlying message.
 
Baptists continually find new ways to express their rage and with Bloodmines they have created a memorable and commanding album. Official release dates and previews of the album will be released throughout the Summer months.
 
New songs from Bloodmines have been unloaded live by Baptists in recent months, including this ripping Rain City session, recorded in their hometown. If you are not aware of the drumming talents of Nick Yacyshyn, do yourself a favor and watch this video a few times. It will take more than one play for it to all really sink in! This dude is just a monster on the kit. Dave Grohl of The Foo Fighters (Nirvana/Queens of The Stone Age) recently named Nick his favorite new drummer. We here at Sick Drummer Magazine have had Nick on our radar since November 2006 when he was playing with A Textbook Tragedy.
 
 
 

 
Goatwhore Unleashes First Taste Of 'Constricting Rage Of The Merciless' - Lyric Video + Preorder Packages
Thursday, 29 May 2014 17:54

Drummer Zack Simmons and Goatwhore, are pleased to unleash the first taste of their forthcoming new full-length, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless, with seventh track, "FBS."
 
Captured at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida with audio magus, Erik Rutan at the helm, the deafening serenades of Constricting Rage Of The Merciless serves as the band's first studio effort to be tracked to two-inch tape. A more challenging approach that demands performance over pro-tooled perfection and leaving little room for error, the ten-track, 37-minute offering marks Goatwhore's most well-executed, sonically devastating manifestation to date, its warm, organic production harnessing the thick, monolithic, recklessly war-ready tone and energy of their live performance in a way previous recordings have not.
 
"If we went to someone else, it would be a total disaster," guitarist/vocalist Sammy Duet recently told Decibel Magazine (June 2014 issue) of working with Rutan, who, having recorded the band since 2006's A Haunting Curse, has become as much a fundamental asset to Goatwhore's apocalyptic sound and vision as the band members themselves. "He understands what we want out of an album instead of coming away with something that shiny, polished, sterile, digitally manipulated and completely fake and false."
 
Witness the audio/visual reprimand of the "FBS" lyric video along with the infernal cover creation of Jordan Barlow at metalblade.com/goatwhore where you'll also find a variety of preorder bundles available.
 
Constricting Rage Of The Merciless is slated for release in North America on July 8th, 2014 via Metal Blade Records. The record comes in conjunction with the band's Summer-long live takeover which includes a short run of headlining infiltrations set to commence on July 5th before jumping on this year's crushing edition of The Summer Slaughter tour alongside Morbid Angel, Dying Fetus, The Faceless and more! Additionally, the band will play a special performance at this year's Gwar B-Q on August 16th.

Anthrax To Release "Chile On Hell" DVD This September
Wednesday, 28 May 2014 16:43

Drummer Charlie Benante and Anthrax have announced the release of "Chile On Hell," a live-in-concert DVD that is set for a September 16, 2014 release.  "Chile On Hell" was filmed at the Teatro Caupolican in Santiago, Chile on May 10, 2013,  and features Anthrax - Joey Belladonna/vocals, Scott Ian/guitar, Charlie Benante/drums, Frank Bello/bass and Jon Donais/lead guitar.  The band performed an extended set that featured songs from Anthrax's entire catalogue - all the fan-favorites including "I Am The Law," "Indians," "Madhouse," "Caught In A Mosh," "The Devil You Know," and "I'm Alive."  "Chile On Hell" will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray, was recorded in 5.1 Surround Sound, and will retail for $16.98. 
 
"Santiago was the perfect place to film the show for this," said Anthrax's Charlie Benante.  "When we'd played there in the past, we'd finish our set, play our encore and go back to the dressing room.  But every time, the fans would continue to scream and cheer and clap.  I mean, they went on and on, they wouldn't stop.  One time Scott and I walked out to the side of the stage just to watch what was going on in the audience, it was intense.  Why wouldn't we want to film a DVD in front of an audience like that?
 
"Plus," Benante continued, the time was right to do this DVD."  The band was in the home stretch of a three-plus-year campaign to record and support Worship Music and the Anthems EP, a period of time that was loaded with high points: the return of "classic era" vocalist Joey Belladonna, Worship Music making the band's highest chart debut in two decades, the series of Big Four shows - Anthrax, Metallica, Slayer and Metallica, the four bands that wrote the speed and thrash metal road map - that culminated in the September 2011 Big Four spectacular at Yankee Stadium in the band's home town of New York, "Anthrax Day" declared in the Bronx, becoming the first metal band to have its music ("Got The Time") played on Mars, two Grammy nominations, and sold out shows in every corner of the globe.  "We wanted to finish on a high note," Benante continued, "we didn't want to look back and regret that we didn't record the live show."
 
"Chile On Hell" was produced by Jay Ruston and filmed by City Drive Entertainment Group and DC3 Global.  The DVD's cover art was designed by Stephen Thompson who partnered with Benante to "redesign" the artwork from last year's Anthems EP.
