East of The Wall - Seth Rheam - Obfuscator Dye - Exclusive Drum Play-through
Wednesday, 19 February 2014 20:38
For a band that titled its first LP Farmer’s Almanac, East Of The Wall offers little to fans of predictability. The group’s catalog is a slap in the face to any would-be prognosticator. Each album has varied wildly in identity and scope. The debut was a purely instrumental sojourn that ranged from majestic to frantic. Sophomore release Ressentiment added vocals and an increased focus on aggression and dissonance. Tertiary album The Apologist split the difference and garnered widespread acclaim in doing so.
What’s most impressive is that East Of The Wall has increased its immediacy without dumbing the music down. Redaction Artifacts sees the members pushing their playing and composition beyond past boundaries. New lead guitarist Ray Suhy is a brilliant addition, and drummer Seth Rheam turns in his most inspired performance to date. 
Redaction Artifacts was tracked by Eric Rachel (Municipal Waste, God Forbid, Burnt By The Sun, Skid Row) at Trax East and Todd Hutchinsen (Zud, The Baltic Sea) at Acadia Recording, and was mixed by Eric Rachel at Trax East. It will be released October 29th via Translation Loss. Vinyl licensed in the US by Science Of Silence.

Death Angel With Kirk Hammett of Metallica - Trapped Under Ice - Kirk Von Hammett Fear FestEvil - San Francisco 2/8/2014
Monday, 10 February 2014 16:12

This footage of Death Angel, featuring Kirk Hammett of Metallica playing 'Trapped Under Ice', was filmed on 2/8/2014 at The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, California, as part of the 'Kirk Von Hammett Fear FestEvil Weekend.' This was a three day convention celebrating Kirk's love of all things horror, which featured a huge amount of his personal monster and horror memorabilia. 
Aside from the number of amazing panel discussions with celebrities/guest speakers fom many industries (including Greg Nicotero from The Walking Dead), the Fear FestEvil also featured the talents of Exodus, Carcass, Death Angel, Orchid and Death Division (featuring Tim Yeung of Morbid Angel).
Back in 2012 Kirk released a coffee table book called 'Too Much Horror Business' that featured pictures of his massive collection. He displayed a portion of his collection in the 'Kirk's Crypt' exhibit during the Orion Music Festival in 2012 and 2013.
Happy Birthday Cliff Burton -  2/10/1962 - 9/27/1986 RIP!
