Carcass Announce US Tour With Obituary - Macabre - Exhumed and Noisem
Wednesday, 13 August 2014 15:51

Disinterred British extreme metal icons Carcass, will return to the United States once again this October/November! Joining them on select dates are Florida death metal legends Obituary and the eclectic champions of “murder metal”, Macabre. Death grinders Exhumed and newcomers Noisem will open each night of churning insanity as well.
“We thought it would be cool to go off the beaten track a bit and play some places that usually get overlooked,” commented Carcass frontman Jeff Walker. “We figure some of the tumbleweeds needed blowing away. Pretty chuffed to have managed to get our pals Obituary to come along on these dates. As anyone who has seen them recently will testify they're tearing it up live nowadays!”
Adds Obituary:
“We've been waiting to announce this tour for weeks. Finally the cat is out of the bag. What an awesome tour for us and you fans. We are so Stoked! Our new album Inked In Blood will be released on October 28th the same day as the first show at The Rock in Tucson, AZ. Can you say album release party!”

Carcass released Surgical Steel last September and came in at #41 on the US Billboard Top 200 Chart, just narrowly avoiding the dreaded “top 40 band” moniker. Even with their impressive back catalogue, Surgical Steel has given the band their highest charting and possibly most critically acclaimed record to date.
Death metal legends Obituary make their Relapse debut with Inked In Blood, their 9th full length LP.  Almost three decades in, Inked In Blood stands out as one of the finest moments in Obituary’s already godlike discography.  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. 
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!!!

Dave Lombardo’s Philm Announces New Record Deal with UDR Music + Release of Sophomore Album, 'Fire From The Evening Sun'
Wednesday, 30 July 2014 19:38

Drummer Dave Lombardo’s Philm has announced that their long awaited second studio album, Fire From The Evening Sun, will be released on the band’s new label, UDR Music, on September 16, 2014 in the US (September 15 in UK/September 12 in other European territories). 
“UDR is honored to be working with Philm. This partnership seems very instinctual," said UDR Music’s head of A&R/Marketing, Jay Lansford.  “Dave Lombardo and I worked together during the Grip Inc. years. After hearing Philm’s new album this alliance was clearly divine will.  Powerful, intense... urgent.  These three prolific musicians have created something that is refreshingly not mundane, but ear-shattering and groundbreaking.”
Led by the title track single ‘Fire From The Evening Sun’, Philm’s unparalleled drummer, Dave Lombardo, states that the new album will mark a different turn in the bands musical journey. “Philm’s first album, Harmonic, is still an amazing work to me. It’s improvisational and raw. It was my first time producing an album and I am very proud of it.   The new album is a completely different animal. It is again produced by me, but mastered and mixed by a couple of musical giants... Tyler Bates and Robert Carranza.  I believe this album has a daring, callous temperament about it that really sums up our mindset right now.  No improvising, no fluff.  It’s heavy and in your face from start to finish. You may think you know what PHILM is, but you don’t.  If you haven’t seen us live, you have no idea. We thrive on being out of our comfort zones and want fans to take that ride.”
If ‘Fire From The Evening Sun’ is any indication, this album will not only give Lombardo fans what they have so passionately missed, but will take us on a heated musical journey that will leave us soaked in sonic beatitude.
Philm – Gerry Nestler (vocals, guitars), Pancho Tomaselli (bass) and Dave Lombardo (drums) - will hit the road this fall in support of the album by performing several shows throughout Europe and the U.S. with more dates to be confirmed.
See below for full list of dates confirmed so far.
