Cattle Decapitation Release New Album Death Atlas

Cattle Decapitation have now released their new album Death Atlas.
I got into this band in 2013 when I saw them supporting Cryptopsy. They really split opinion in those days so I just never bothered with them for whatever reason. After witnessing them live, all changed! I had never seen a vocal display like it before or since! They were just outrageously good! I bought their album Monolith of Inhumanity and a t shirt on the night and was converted!

I’ve been a fan of everything since, but this is a new level. This is basically one of the best albums I’ve ever heard! They have taken everything that made them great and added more. It’s dark, menacing and the mood of this record is incredible. It’s everything that’s ugly and turned into music. It can be haunting and vicously brutal and effortlessly changes at will sucking you right in!
The lyrics are amazing and the delivery of them ranges from death vocals to all out haunting and at times almost clean in delivery.

I could keep writing here about how insanely good this album is, but I’d rather listen to it again and you’d be far better served doing the exact same thing.

Album of the year for me personally without question. It’s both beautiful and utter brutal in equal measure and as close to perfection as it gets.

His task will be to break the curse that plagues the 5 great warriors of the game world who will accompany him throughout his journey. The curse brings the warriors in a constant state of inebriation, depriving them of their powers as well and rendering them unable to perform their duty, or defeat the evil demons and gods.

The player will have to travel the game world to find the gem, in a race against a prophecy that announces the rise of a new god”.

ANNIHILATOR: Canadian Heavy Metal/Thrash Legends Unveil ‘Psycho Ward’ Video New LP ‘Ballistic Sadistic’ Out January 24th Via Silver Lining Music

Canadian heavy metal/thrash legends ANNIHILATOR are pleased to unveil the official video for “Psycho Ward.” The thought-provoking track centered on domestic violence, comes by way of the band’s seventeenth studio album, Ballistic, Sadistic, set for release January 24th, 2020 via Silver Lining Music.

 “Psycho Ward” is yet another example of the band’s return to their roots with a contemporary twist. Issues founding guitarist, vocalist, producer and principal songwriter Jeff Waters of the track,”‘Psycho Ward’ takes us back to the musical vibe of Never, Neverland‘s ‘Stonewall’ but with a drastically-different lyrical theme: domestic violence and abuse. I’ve written quite a few songs on this subject since the ’90s. But this song is the perfect combination of ‘old-school’ metal meeting the right lyrical and vocal delivery to get the point across. Enjoy, ‘old-school’ metal fans. Welcome, the new!”

A name that should need no introduction in the metal world, ANNIHILATOR was forged in Canada in late 1984. Since then, the band has been touring and releasing records, selling millions of albums to date, nonstop, for over thirty years. Cited by bands like Megadeth, Pantera, Dream Theater, Children Of Bodom, Lamb of God, Opeth, Trivium, and so many more as having influence on their music, Jeff Waters and ANNIHILATOR have continued to tour the world, year after year, whilst consistently putting out high-quality true-metal music. It takes a long time to reach legendary status, and no one can dispute that ANNIHILATOR are inspirations, teachers, legends, and a force demonstrating what hard work and love of your craft can bring to the world. 

Produced, engineered, and mixed by Waters, Ballistic, Sadistic was recorded at the brand new, state of the art Watersound Studios UK, in Durham earlier this year with additional engineering and editing by bassist Rich Hinks and mastering by Maor Appelbaum at Maor Appelbaum Mastering in California. 

Ballistic, Sadistic will be available in limited-edition digipak, vinyl, and digital formats. For preorders, go to THIS LOCATION.

Forged in 2015, SCOUR‘s debilitating fusion of black metal, grindcore, and thrash made its debut with the ferocious single “Dispatched.” The band’s debut EP, Grey, was released the following year via Anselmo’s own Housecore label. Just before a crushing performance at Hellfest Open Air, which featured a cover of the Pantera classic “Strength Beyond Strength,” the band recorded their Red EP at Nodferatu’s Lair with Steve Berrigan (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod, Haarp, Classhole, etc.) at the helm. The record was mixed and mastered by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio and released in 2017. Reaping critical hails from fans and critics alike, the recording ranked among Revolver’s 20 Best Albums Of 2017, with the esteemed publication noting, “ex-Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo has dabbled in black metal intermittently for over two decades now with side projects like Christ Inversion, Viking Crown, Eibon, and now SCOUR, his gnarled crew of battle-tested players from Pig Destroyer, Cattle Decapitation, and others. A six-track romp through buzzing infernos and sludgy hellscapes, the supergroup’s second EP, Red, is Anselmo’s finest black-metal hour to date – no corpse paint necessary.” 

Further details on the Black EP will be announced in the coming weeks. Stay alert.
