"Mummified Ante Mortem", a brand new song from Bulgarian death metallers ENTHRALLMENT, can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget below. The track comes off the band's fourth album, "The Voice Of Human Perversity", which will be released in early 2014 via Rebirth The Metal Productions and Grindhead Records. The CD was recorded at Murder Sound Studio in Bulgaria and was mastered by guitarist-turned-producer James Murphy (DEATH, OBITUARY, TESTAMENT, CANCER, KONKHRA, DISINCARNATE). "The Voice Of Human Perversity" track listing: 01. Screams Etched Within The Crags 02. Rats Before The Worms 03. Mummified Ante Mortem 04. Rove In Hell 05. Stench Of Burnt Down Sanctuary 06. Madness Coloured In Light 07. Tones Of Gladness 08. Tool Of Suicide ENTHRALLMENT's last album, "People From The Lands Of Vit", came out in April 2012 via the American label United Guttural Records. The cover art, entitled "Hell", was a creation of Bulgarian artist Stefan Stefanov. According to a press release, "ENTHRALLMENT's music can be described as brutal-yet -technical, early-'90s-era death metal. All instruments play a major role in the formation of every intense song. The string section is totally heavy and sick, delivering riff after memorable riff. Driving percussion blasts and pounds and ultimately reinterprets shredding riffs into headbang inducing hooks while intensely pissed off guttural vocals deliver the sadistic sermon. Their sound has been compared to SUFFOCATION, CANNIBAL CORPSE and DEVOURMENT."
The official video for the song "Stop!" from the Swedish rock band EGONAUT and singer Apollo Papathanasio (SPIRITUAL BEGGARS, ex-FIREWIND, ex-EVIL MASQUERADE) can be seen below. The clip is a tribute to singer Ray Gillen (BLACK SABBATH, BADLANDS), who died on December 3, 1993 (20 years ago) of AIDS-related complications. "Stop!" was originally recorded by PHENOMENA on their second album, "Dream Runner", in 1987. EGONAUT released its second studio album, "Mount Egonaut", on February 27 via Transubstans Records. The follow-up to 2011's "Electric" was engineered, produced and mixed by EGONAUT and Tobias Walka, and mastered by Jens Bogren (OPETH, PARADISE LOST, KATATONIA, SOILWORK, DARK TRANQUILLITY) at Fascination Street Studios in Ãrebro, Sweden.
A new SLAYER biography by metalhead and award-winning journalist D.X. Ferris has topped the Hot New Releases in Pop Culture chart at Amazon.com's Kindle Store. The book's title is "Slayer 66 & 2/3: The Jeff & Dave Years, A Metal Band Biography. From Birth To Reborn, Including Slaytanic Profiles, A New History Of The Thrash Metal Kings' Early Days, Reign In Blood Tours, A European Invasion, The Palladium Riot, The Seat Cushion Chaos Concert, The Whole Diabolical Discography, Newly Unearthed Details From Dave Lombardo's Turbulent History With The Band, Artwork And Photos You've Probably Never Seen Before, Jeff Hanneman's Hard Times, The Big Four's Big Year, Lombardo's Final Exit, The Top 11 Hanneman Tributes, The Mosh Memorial Service, Untold Stories, Updates, Relevant Digressions, And More Scenes From The Abyss". Available exclusively via Amazon, the full-length book is available worldwide now, as an e-book that can be read on any smart phone, tablet, or computer that can run the free Kindle app. For a limited time, the electronic version costs $6.66 (US). "If you have a device that you can use to check Facebook, you can be reading the book minutes from now," says Ferris. A 320-page paperback version will be available later in the month. The electronic version features extensive hyperlinks to (non-copyrighted) supplemental material. The exhaustively researched look at the band's career (to date) features 59 chapters, 400 footnotes, 3 appendices (in the e-book, 2 in the paperback), 33 photos, 11 illustrations, a full works cited section, and an index. The photos include striking, previously unseen images by Harald Oimoen, of renown for the Bay Area thrash yearbook "Murder In The Front Row". Illustrations include lost artwork and an early flyer by Albert Cuellar, the "Live Undead"/"Hell Awaits" cover artist who went on to work with Tim Burton, SUBLIME, and Sir Mix-A-Lot. The book also includes Jeff Hanneman's original diagram for the "Live Undead" cover (spoiler: it's stick figures). David Konow, author of the heavy metal history "Bang Your Head", writes: "This book is the biography the band has always deserved. 'Slayer 66 2/3' goes in deep, covers an enormous amount of ground, and it was clearly a labor of love. Metal is an important part of music history, and SLAYER will always be one of the most important bands in the genre. A book documenting the good, the bad, and the ugly without spin or sensationalism has been long overdue." Ferris wrote the first English-language book about SLAYER, Bloomsbury Academic's "Slayer's Reign in Blood" (2008), which is part of the prestigious "33 1/3" series of volumes about classic albums. A documentary in book form, it details the creation and legacy of SLAYER's major-label debut. The timely "Slayer 66 2/3: The Jeff & Dave Yearsâ¦" is the rest of the story (so far). It's a much bigger prequel, sequel, companion, and update. It spans from the members' childhoods to the fall 2013 old-school tour. Ferris began writing it in March 2013, shortly after iconic drummer Dave Lombardo left the band. And he continued covering the story after founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman unexpectedly passed away on May 2. And he stayed with it through memorial services, lineup shakeups, and breaking developments. The book's final photo was taken Wednesday, November 20, in Pittsburgh. "It answers two questions," says Ferris. "One, how did SLAYER happen? And two, why is Dave Lombardo â the most influential and acclaimed drummer in the history of metal â no longer playing with the greatest thrash band?" This thorough, character-driven look at SLAYER's unrivalled career is based on original and archival interviews with the band, witnesses, employees, label executives, fans, and peers. Cross-referenced research includes song credits, concert counts, and profiles of the band's albums, from beloved classics to more divisive releases. "Some leading metal writers have written some great pieces about SLAYER," says Ferris. "They should all be read, and I include a list of them. But nobody will ever spend this much time and effort on a SLAYER book again." Ferris is an Ohio Society Of Professional Journalists reporter of the year. He has written for The AV Club, RollingStone.com, Decibel, Alternative Press, Metal Sucks, Cleveland Scene, and other periodicals. 2013 marks his 28th year in the music press, if you count his letter Hit Parader published in fall 1985. He was thrown out the "South Of Heaven" tour when a misdirected crowdsurf landed him onstage. The first six and a half chapters can be read at the book's Amazon page. "Slayer 66 & 2/3: The Jeff & Dave Yearsâ¦" is the first release of 6623 Press, a creator-friendly multimedia outlet. For more information, visit www.SlayerBio.com.

"Insane", the first video from RENTAP, the new Dutch band featuring former members of PESTILENCE, THE DEVIL'S BLOOD, EXIVIOUS, THE NEW DOMINION, BANDITO and CATOGRAPHER, can be seen below. RENTAP brings a surprising mix of catchy rock and gut-wrenching metal riffs, fronted by the stunning Phi Nix on vocals. The group's EP, "Summoning The Sun", which features a guest solo by Bart Hennephof from TEXTURES, takes you from anthem-like choruses to relaxing bridge-sections back to bluesy rockriffs, while Phi Nix's lyrics are philosophical and straight from the heart. RENTAP has played their try-out shows through September, and has been received well by audiences and critics alike. The band has since begun booking a release tour and will be coming to a venue near you soon.

WORLDVIEW is: Rey Parra - Lead Vocals George Rene Ochoa - Guitar, Keyboards Johnny Gonzales - Drums Todd Libby - Bass, Keyboards Ray Vidal - Guitar
Corey Taylor, vocalist and frontman for rock bands SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR, has joined the cast of the feature film "Fear Clinic" from Dry County Entertainment, founded by director Robert Green Hall (MTV's "Teen Wolf", "Laid To Rest", "Lightning Bug"), and Fear Chamber LLC. "Fear Clinic" began as a 2009 horror series for FearNet that consisted of five episodes starring up-and-coming talent like Lucas Till ("X-Men: First Class") and Kate Nauta ("Transporter 2") as well as horror icons Danielle Harris ("Halloween 4"), Lisa Wilcox ("A Nightmare On Elm Street 4") and Kane Hodder (Jason Voorhees). The series and upcoming film stars Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger in the "Nightmare On Elm Street" franchise) as Dr. Andover, a fear doctor who treats patients afflicted with crippling phobias by inducing hallucinations inside his exposure therapy invention; The Fear Chamber. The series, which focused on a different phobia every episode, received critical acclaim including two 2010 Streamy Awards ("Best Sound Design" and "Best Visual FX" for Hall's company Almost Human) and reached over five million hits on FearNet.com. It has since been added to On Demand and mainstream channels YouTube and Hulu, making it the most-watched horror web series in history. The project has been in active development for a feature film, written by Robert Hall and Aaron Drane. The story has seen a shift from the series, however; instead of the episodic nature of the original show, the film will focus on a variety of phobias that all stem from one traumatic event. "Fear Clinic" will see Taylor in the role of Bauer, one of the employees of the clinic who struggles to keep things under control when all Hell breaks loose. Felisha Terrell ("Days of Our Lives"), who wowed viewers with her recurring role as Kali on MTV's "Teen Wolf", will reunite with director Robert Hall as she joins "Fear Clinic" to take on the role of Osborn, a therapist at the clinic and second-in-command to Dr. Andover (Robert Englund). Also attached to the project is Brandon Beemer ("Days of Our Lives", "The Bold And The Beautiful") as Dylan, a famous moto-cross rider who will stop at nothing to protect his girlfriend from the darkness plaguing their lives. These talents join previously announced "Fear Clinic" cast Robert Englund, Fiona Dourif, Thomas Dekker, Kevin Gage, Cleopatra Coleman and Angelina Armani. The film may be a more mature realization of the concept from the series, but at the heart of the story it focuses on the cerebral nature of fear itself and the manifestations it can take for different people. The film opens with a tragedy that launches five people into the public eye and enlists Dr. Andover to lend his expertise to help them overcome trauma-induced phobias. A year later, terrifying "aftershocks" rattle the survivors, leading to them finding their way back to the fear clinic seeking answers. As they line up for another turn in the chamber, Dr. Andover believes that something more sinister may be at work. "Fear Clinic" is currently filming for a Halloween 2014 release.
The official video for DANKO JONES' latest single, "Legs", can be seen below. With acclaimed and often controversial Canadian director Bruce LaBruce at the helm, they've produced a visually captivating video by mirroring the works of Pierre Molinier and applying an artistic-yet-eccentric use of sexuality. LaBruce, who is best known for his sexually charged and culturally challenging productions, has been looking forward to working with the band for a long time. "I've known Danko and John for many years, and I went to many DANKO JONES shows when they were first starting out in Toronto and in New York," he says. "After reconnecting with Danko last year at his book launch, we decided it was finally time for me to do a video for them." The "Legs" video iis in line with the direct vision LaBruce had to create a spectacular and unexpected visual representation of the song. "Danko suggested their song 'Legs', and for some reason I immediately thought of some of my sexy and leggy acquaintances in the M-F transsexual community. "I really love the work of the famous photographer Pierre Molinier, whose gender bending photographs have influenced a variety of artists, so I decided to pay tribute to his work in the video." Alongside LaBruce was art director Kenny Baird who, together with LaBruce, has worked notably with Floria Sigismondi on some of her most successful music videos, to help recreate the style and mood of Molinier. This out-of-the-box thinking has resulted in a striking and unique video to join the long list of video installments the band has made over the years including the "Below The Belt" trilogy and their documentary "Bring On The Mountain" (both directed by The Diamond Brothers). Danko says, "Why this collaboration with Bruce LaBruce didn't happen sooner is beyond me. From writing the liner notes to our second release, to using our song in his 1999 movie 'Skin Flick/Skin Gang', Bruce's connection to our band is irrefutable." This past year the band has been touring extensively. Not only have they sold out shows all over Europe and Canada, they have finished their two biggest U.S. tours to date; supporting VOLBEAT across the country as well spending 5 weeks on the road with the 2013 Uproar festival. They've also reached their highest ever radio ratings in the U.S. with the single "Just A Beautiful Day" peaking at no. 26 on the Active Rock charts. This new collaboration with LaBruce is paving a new road of artistic creations for the band. "For us, Bruce directing 'Legs' has been a long time coming, and, of course, good things come to those who wait," Danko says. "This music video is a trip. We love it. We know you'll love it too."

Eric Blair of "The Blairing Out With Eric Blair Show" conducted an interview with bassist Rex Brown (KILL DEVIL HILL, DOWN, PANTERA) at the Bass Player LIVE! Concert & Awards Show, which was held November 9 at the historic Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, California. The concert honored heavy metal legend, BLACK SABBATH's Geezer Butler, and featured an all-star band of rock luminaries performing BLACK SABBATH songs as a tribute to Butler. The performance culminated with Geezer joining the band for the finale. Brown's chat with "The Blairing Out With Eric Blair Show" can be seen below. KILL DEVIL HILL is the band featuring legendary drummer Vinny Appice (DIO, BLACK SABBATH, HEAVEN & HELL) alongside Rex Brown, Mark Zavon (RATT, W.A.S.P., 40 CYCLE HUM) on guitar and Jason "Dewey" Bragg (PISSING RAZORS) on vocals. The group's sophomore album, "Revolution Rise", sold around 2,150 copies in the United States in its first week of release. Released on October 29 via Century Media Records, "Revolution Rise" was produced by KILL DEVIL HILL and Jeff Pilson (DOKKEN, FOREIGNER, DIO) and was mixed by Jay Ruston (STONE SOUR, ANTHRAX, STEEL PANTHER). The cover artwork was created by Sam Shearon, who has previously worked with ROB ZOMBIE, IRON MAIDEN and FEAR FACTORY, to name just a few. KILL DEVIL HILL took its new material on the road for a headlining club tour that kicked off October 26 in Ramona, California and ran through the month of November with support from labelmates EYES SET TO KILL and GIRL ON FIRE, as well as BLACK WATER RISING.
IRON MAIDEN vocalist Bruce Dickinson was interviewed on Chile's Radio Futuro before the legendary British heavy metal band wrapped its massive "Maiden England 2013 World Tour" on October 2 in front of an audience of 60,105 spectators at the national stadium Estadio Nacional in Santiago. You can now watch the chat in three parts below. According to MaidenRevelations.com, Chilean newspaper La Tercera has called IRON MAIDEN the biggest foreign concert draw ever in Chile, with a total of 226,000 tickets sold for the seven shows the band has played in the country since 1996. This feat is made even more remarkable by the fact that MAIDEN was banned by the church from playing in Chile in 1992. "Because we were banned in the '90s, people have felt a very strong connection to us," Dickinson told La Tercera. "And we have always brought great shows with us and worked hard not to disappoint the audience." IRON MAIDEN first played in Santiago in 1996 at a time when the band was fronted by Blaze Bayley. The concert was attended by 18,000 fans and included the infamous "Blaze Gets Mad" version of the song "The Trooper". IRON MAIDEN in August landed at position No. 1 on Billboard.com's "Hot Tours" list of top-grossing tours with $8.5 million in ticket sales from six performances on their summer tour of Europe. The shows were attended by a total of 121,280 fans, including a two-night, sold-out stand on August 3-4 at the O2 Arena in Lonon, England, where the band played to 27,000 fans. With totals added from this summer's Europe dates, overall ticket sales from the tour top $42 million from 45 reported concerts.
Polish extreme metallers BEHEMOTH will release their long-awaited new album, "The Satanist", on February 3 in the U.K., February 4 in North America and Poland, February 5 in Japan, and February 7 in the rest of the world. Pre-order bundles, include: CD, LP, t-shirt, as well as the deluxe box set, and are available at metalblade.com/behemoth in North America, nuclearblast.de/behemoth in Europe, and on behemoth-store.com (digibook and box). BEHEMOTH's video for the new single "Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel" has been unveiled. This visual masterpiece was produced by Grupa 13 and is one of BEHEMOTH's most unsettling and unique works to date. BEHEMOTH frontman Adam "Nergal" Darski states about the video: "Yes, we took all the time in the world to complete this project. And we did everything that was humanely possible to accurately express our vision. We crossed the Rubicon. "'Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel' is an ecstatic manifest of our unrestrained artistic will, where we dare to reach out beyond the limitations of the heavy metal genre. And it's only the beginning." "The Satanist" deluxe box, which is available in North America as an European import, includes: CD/DVD digibook in silver mirror slipcase with a high-quality 44-page booklet (with gold foil, UV gloss lamination), supersize poster flag (approx. 3.5' x 5'), wooden black inverted rosary cross, metal pin, black envelope with black communion wafers. The DVD, "Live Barbarossa", includes a professionally filmed show in Ekaterinburg, Russia, as well as 30-minute documentary about the creative process behind "The Satanist". "The Satanist" was produced by BEHEMOTH, Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawscy and Daniel Bergstrand at Hertz Studio. The CD was mixed by Matt Hyde (SLAYER) and mastered by Ted Jensen (METALLICA, AC/DC) at Sterling Sound in New York City. The cover art for "The Satanist" was painted by renowned Russian painter and occultist Denis Forkas. The paint used included some of Nergal's own blood. Additional art and design was completed by Metastazis (PARADISE LOST) and Zbigniew Bielak (WATAIN, GHOST). "I wanted to incorporate some of my DNA into the art," Nergal told Australia's Heavy magazine about having his blood included in "The Satanist" artwork. "This album seems to be so defining of who we are now as people and as individuals, and considering all the instances in recent years, [we wanted] to make it more 'ours' than it is usually." In a recent interview with Revolver magazine, Darski described BEHEMOTH's new songs as "very atmospheric" and "very emotional." "Think BURZUM meets NEW ORDER meets KILLING JOKE," he added. But at the same time, fans shouldn't expect the album to sound too far removed from BEHEMOTH's past efforts. "Take SLAYER, for example," Darski said. "Whatever genre they deal with, they still end up sounding like SLAYER. Even when they were flirting with nu-metal, it was a SLAYER record. Same with BEHEMOTH." According to Darski, at least some of the inspiration for the new BEHEMOTH album came from his five-month bout of leukemia he overcame in January 2011, after receiving a bone-marrow transplant. "When I was in the hospital, I was collecting experiences and emotions," he said. "I'm pretty sure that it's coming out now. There are moments I catch myself thinking about how my state was back then. It was me versus life, me versus death. It definitely changed my thoughts a lot. It's 100 percent being reflected in the record and songs I'm writing nowadays. I'm way more radical than I used to be." Fans can still order the limited edition 12-inch EP of "Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel" (1,000 white and 1,000 black, 180-gram vinyl) that will be released as a gatefold with each copy hand numbered and signed by the band.

Furor Divinus 03. Messe Noire 04. Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer 05. Amen 06. The Satanist 07. Ben Sahar 08. In the Absence ov Light 09. O Father O Satan O Sun!
American rockers NASHVILLE PUSSY will release their new studio album, "Up The Dosage", on January 21, 2014 in North America, in Germany on January 17, 2014 and in the rest of Europe on January 20, 2014 via Steamhammer/SPV. It will be made available as a limited digipak edition (including two bonus tracks and a poster), double gatefold LP edition with colored vinyl, standard version and download. According to a press release, "Up The Dosage" picks up seamlessly where their 2009 release "From Hell To Texas" left off. And what is more: the quartet's five-year hiatus seems to have done frontman Blaine Cartwright (vocals, guitar) and Ruyter Suys (guitars) good â all 13 new songs (plus two bonus tracks) sound like they were catapulted into to the public from a fountain of youth, rocking in typical PUSSY style. Blaine Cartwright is rightly proud of and unmistakably happy about the new material. "None of the previous NASHVILLE PUSSY albums have been as diverse and at the same time consistent," he said. "Everything sounds even bigger and better, yet raw and authentic through and through. This is our 'Back In Black'!" "Up The Dosage" track listing: 01. Everybody's Fault But Mine 02. Rub It To Death 03. Till The Meat Falls Off The Bone 04. The South's Too Fat To Rise Again 05. Before The Drugs Wear Off 06. Spent 07. Beginning Of The End 08. Up The Dosage 09. Taking It Easy 10.

NASHVILLE PUSSY came together in 1996. Ever since, the band has been performing a strenuous annual gig marathon, touring with acts like LYNYRD SKYNYRD, REVEREND HORTON HEAT and ZZ TOP as well as playing festivals like Wacken Open Air. Classic albums such as "Let Them Eat Pussy" (1998), "High As Hell" (2000), "Say Something Nasty" (2002) and "From Hell To Texas" (2009) have caused an international stir, and their single release "Fried Chicken And Coffee" earned the band a Grammy nomination in the late Nineties in the category "Best Metal Performance."

New QUIET RIOT singer Jizzy Pearl (also of LOVE/HATE) has completed laying down vocal tracks for the band's new CD at a studio in Encino, California. The effort is expected to be released in early 2014. A few photos from the studio can be found at this location. QUIET RIOT recently "amicably" parted ways with singer Scott Vokoun. Pearl will make his live debut with QUIET RIOT on New Year's Eve (December 31) in Flagstaff, Arizona. Said QUIET RIOT in a statement: "[We] thank Scott for his past dedication and wish him much continued success." Vokoun joined QUIET RIOT in March 2012 after the band played several shows the previous month with ex-MONTROSE vocalist Keith St. John following the departure of Mark Huff. QUIET RIOT's current lineup is as follows: Jizzy Pearl - Vocals Frankie Banali - Drums Chuck Wright - Bass Alex Grossi - Guitar QUIET RIOT singer Kevin DuBrow died in November 2007 of an accidental cocaine overdose. He was 52 years old. QUIET RIOT was perhaps best known for its 1983 cover of "Cum On Feel The Noize". The song, featuring DuBrow's powerful, gravelly voice, appeared on the band's album "Metal Health" â which was the first by a metal band to reach No. 1 on the Billboard chart.

The album was released as a digipak with a special booklet including fan photos and download. In a recent interview with Geeks Of Doom, Ford stated about her tours: "They're chaotic! It's like going to war and then coming out winning. You've gotta win the war. It's such a good feeling when you come out [and] you're done. You go on these little adventures and [they're] really difficult, in a good way. A challenge. And we got such a good band and we got such a great group of guys working with us that everything is so professional. We take a wacky situation and we make the best out of it. We come out of it with such a good feeling. All the shows have been so good they're just magic because of the combination of people I have working with me." Ford's latest studio album, "Living Like A Runaway", was released on June 19, 2012 in North America. The effort was made available in four configurations: a double LP, limited-edition CD, standard CD and digital download. The artwork for the album was created by famed rock photographer Mark Weiss.

The cover artwork (see below) was taken from Australian artist Simon Cowell's painting Power Of The Mind, and offers a fitting face to the album's 11 tracks. Steve Asheim recently told Decibel magazine about the band's working relationship with Suecof: "It's awesome! I've known Jason since '08. I had been going out to do the ORDER OF ENNEAD records with him. The last DEICIDE record we did with Mark [Lewis], but I've known Jason a long time, so I asked him if he was into it. He said, 'Absolutely!' I wanted to get one done ovith him before something happens. You never know." Regarding the lyrical themes covered on the new DEICIDE album, Asheim said: "[The lyrics] are typical Glen Benton. Blasphemous, brutal rhetoric. We're going to get down and dirty this Blasphemous, brutal rhetoric. We're going to get down and dirty this time around, so expect the lyrics to be brutal." According to Asheim, longtime fans will pick up on nuances inspired by the almighty "Legion" effort. "Jason wanted to capture the 'Legion' feel," the drummer said. "We're wanting Glen's vocals to sound more old-school. So, it's a bit of the new with a little throwback action." As for DEICIDE's time at Audiohammer, Asheim said: "It's pretty cut-and-dried these days. I've known Jason a few years. I kind of know his methodology, how he works. It's a far drive, so we'll spend two or three nights there. Once we knock it out, we'll end up partying. We repeat that the next day." "To Hell With God" sold 2,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release. DEICIDE's previous CD, "Till Death Do Us Part", opened with 2,900 copies back in May 2008. Interview (audio):
