Hot News – Hate Eternal: Kicks off North American tour with Origin today in Austin, TX!

2011. jún 16, 12:06 :

Erik Rutan and co. will be joining fellow death metal legends Origin for a North American tour throughout June and July. The tour kicks off TODAY in Austin, TX at Emo's and wraps up on July 14th in Orlando, FL at Firestone Live. This tour will be the first in Hate Eternal's North Americna campaign in support of their latest album, Phoenix Amongst the Ashes. The tour is being presented by Decibel Magazine and Metal Injection in association with Sick DrummerScionLaboga, and Choosing Death.

Erik Rutan comments, "The response to our new album "Phoenix Amongst The Ashes" continues to be incredible, and we hope to see all you guys out on this U.S./Canadian tour. The show each night is gonna be awesome! Thanks so much for all your support. It is what keeps us strong!"

Phoenix Amongst the Ashes was released on May 10th and was hailed as "a relentless, intriciate, and near-anthemic crowd-pleaser" by Revolver Magazine. Title sponsor of the tour, Decibel Magazine, proclaimed "Rutan's ornate melodies engage in a constant give-and-take with moments of absolutely vicious discordance, while drummer Jade Simonetto is so in control of such complex cadences and fills that you're compelled to sit back and marvel." Jade Simonetto's performance was further complimented by the highly respected DRUM! Magazine: "Phoenix showcases a far more dynamic band. Guitar passages range from weedly to art-y to textured…juxtaposing break-neck verses with near-mid-tempo groove sections…Simonetto takes the gold for endurance." Needless to say, Phoenix is in the running for one of the best overall death metal releases of 2011 and could very well be considered the best of the band's long and storied career.

Hot News – Thrall to release new album on Moribund; reveal title, tracklisting; upcoming shows

2011. jún 15, 22:12 :

October / November 2011 - a year after their debut release on MORIBUND RECORDS, Away From the Haunts of Man, THRALL will unleash their virulent second album, Vermin to the Earth. MORIBUND will release Vermin worldwide, with the exceptions of Australia and New Zealand, where Obsidian Records will release it.

Vermin documents the metamorphosis of THRALL from a sanguinary studio project to a formidable live entity that now includes Leigh Ritson (ex Disseminate) on bass and Ramez Bathish (ex Whitehorse / ABC Weapons) on second guitar. THRALL built their live reputation on punishing volume and an atmosphere of menace.

Vermin delivers a unique blend of old-school black metal and hypnotic void-worship. Songs range from bile-soaked mid-paced anthems ("Vermin to the Earth / Oblivion") to desolate lurching dirges ("Plague of Man") to blasting suicidal elegies ("Vita Vacuus Voluntas"). The new album is more: cohesive, hefty, solemn and yet more spacious than THRALL’s debut, Away from the Haunts of Men. Vermin is a requiem to a cursed species. It advocates the expiration of the reign of homo sapiens and heralds the post-human era.
