Metal / MASSACRE (FL) Apparently Still Kicking Around
« on: February 15, 2009, 02:20:44 PM »
Quote
Florida death metal band Massacre have issued the following update about their line-up changes and legal challenges:

"That's right... MASSACRE is going to be going under 'new' management with a very well known and respected individual and great friend... a veteran in the metal scene himself, and the hope is that with his assistance and management skills - that MASSACRE will be able to finally get over these "legal issues" and problems it has been faced with for the last several years... finally breaking out of these "legal chains" that have been holding the band in "legal limbo" for the past several years - and finally allowing Kam Lee to move forwards with creating an all "new" MASSACRE line up for 2010! Announcement will be made when all has been finalised. "

I can sense the bated breath!

Metal / DESULTORY (SWE) Reforms
« on: February 02, 2009, 11:12:32 PM »

Pulverized Records has issued the following update about signing Swedish death metal act Desultory:

"It is with our immense pleasure to announce that we had dug up an old Swedish Death Metal gem from the late 80's and bring you the legendary DESULTORY !

"With 3 ridiculously under-rated albums ( Into Eternity , Bitterness and Swallow The Snake respectively) under Metal Blade Records , the band was put to sleep indefinitely and was conjured back to life only recently. We are very eager to see what form of Death Metal disaster awaits us with this classic resurrection!!

"The band comments: "We are very pleased to sign with Pulverised Records as they have a very good reputation here in Sweden. Professional guys and fans of the Death Metal scene, just as it should be. After our 3rd album in 1996, we put Desultory to sleep and went on to explore other musical directions.

"But now, 13 years later, we are back again, we felt the need to create some new Death Metal and that it was time for Desultory to be reborn. The new material for the forthcoming record will be a touch of the old Desultory but mixed up with new influences. It will be hard, brutal and melodic.

"Two lineup changes. Håkan Morberg is now playing lead guitar (before he was playing bass) and Jojje Bohlin is handling the bass. Still Klas Morberg on vox and guitar and Thomas Johnson smashing the drums. We're really looking forward to see you on tour or on a festival somewhere!"

I like the first, which is an up-tempo, speed metal-like take on Swedish melody before that became wholly associated with the scene in Göteborg.  The second, similar, but not so much.  No comment on #3.

New York's death metal legends Suffocation has announced that they will be entering the studio on January 31st, to record their brand new album, "Blood Oath." They will once again be recording with Joe Cincotta with Zack Ohren handling the mixing duties. The albums artwork will be drawn this time around by Jon Zig who has previously worked with the likes of Gorgasm, Disgorge and Deeds Of Flesh.

Some of the albums tentative song titles include, "Undeserving," "Provoking The Disturbed," "Come Hell Or High Priest," "Dismal Dream," "Confines Of Disillusion" and the title track. More album and tour details will be revealed shortly.

Some of those tentative song titles are pretty rough.

Metal / Rip-off Band BELIEVER Reunites Like Everyone Else

Reunited American thrash metal act Believer has announced that their new studio album will be entitled, "Gabriel" and that it will be released on March 17th through Metal Blade Records.

Band leader Kurt Bachman states: "It's been quite a long break for us, but metal stays in your blood and the constant nagging from Daub became overbearing. The opportunity to work with Howard Jones, Brian Slagel and all the amazing talented people at Metal Blade is fantastic and we are looking forward to a long and creative relationship. Needless to say, we're stoked about Believer's future."

Interesting resource; 90 percent of these are still completely anonymous.  I must say I didn't know Bryan Hipp (BRUTALITY) was dead.

Metal / Two New AUTOPSY Tracks + Previously Unreleased Tracks
« on: January 10, 2009, 03:14:20 PM »
Quote
Autopsy has been "dragged from the grave and vomited out 2 brand new tracks" (according to the press release), their first in nearly 15 years. This will make up the new extremely limited vinyl single release of "Horrific Obsession" in January. "Horrific Obsession" will be limited to only 1000 units and will be available exclusively from peaceville.com on January 26, 2009, with pre-orders available now.

This could be interesting if it isn't just re-packaged ABSCESS (which was further punkified Shitfun-era AUTOPSY).

Quote
The two tracks will also be included on a special 2-disc 20th anniversary edition of the classic 1989 debut album, "Severed Survival," coming in March. The release includes a second disc of previously unheard rehearsal and live rarities, including two songs originally intended for "Severed Survival." The package also includes a booklet detailing the early history of the band, as documented by the guys themselves, plus unseen photos. This special 2-disc edition of "Severed Survival" will be available on February 23, 2009.

Now that is pretty exciting.

Nothing suprising here, but maybe worth a few cringes/laughs.

METALLICA's LARS ULRICH Donated To JOHN EDWARDS'S 2008 Presidential Campaign

Quote
According to Fundrace 2008, The Huffington Post's Google Maps mashup of 2008 presidential campaign donations, METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich donated $2,300 to John Edwards' 2008 presidential campaign.

...

In 2007, Why Democracy?, a documentary project using film to start a global conversation about democracy, posted a nine-minute video interview with Lars Ulrich in which he answered ten questions on his views about God, democracy, and systems of government.

...

When asked whom he would want to be the "President of the World," Ulrich replied, "I want the smartest guy, and the smartest guy is Bill Clinton, so Bill Clinton should be the president of the world, absolutely."

Interzone / Note on Thread Indexing
« on: September 17, 2008, 02:45:23 AM »
Threads such as the College thread that were left over from the old board and met certain criteria don't seem to want to index correctly.  There have been a few like this.  If your post doesn't seem to show up, click the "Print" option at the bottom of the post to show a print-friendly version of the thread with recent posts included (like this).

I don't personally know how to fix this, but we've made a few others work thusfar.  It seems to require a post-by-post correction.
