Scar Symmetry

SCAR SYMMETRY – new video out soon, screenshots available!

Swedish progressive melodic death metallers SCAR SYMMETRY recently shot a video for the first single, “Noumenon & Phenomenon“, off their upcoming album „Dark Matter Dimensions“ which is scheduled for October 5th, 2009 via Nuclear Blast Records.

The video shot by LEGION OF THE DAMNEDs very own Maurice Swinkels will be made available online soon!

“We`re pleased to announce that the video for the song “Noumenon and Phenomenon” shot in early September this year is coming together nicely. The director Maurice Swinkels is currently editing it and from what we`ve seen he`s doing a damn fine job! We shot the video at two locations here in Sweden, the first one was basically a photostudio and the second location was…get ready now…an abandoned and haunted insane asylum!“ – Henrik Ohlsson

“Was great meeting up with the SCAR SYMMETRY guys again since I produced their very first, one of the “The illusionist” video's as well. We had 2 locations, one was shot with greenscreen, one was an old mental hospital which was actually near the studio of Peter Tägtgren! Very cool!” – Maurice Swinkels

Surf to the band’s MySpace www.myspace.com/scarsymmetry to check out the entire album!

CHIMAIRA – Replacement for Matt DeVries on Euro tour

CHIMAIRA rhythm guitarist Matt DeVries is sitting out the remainder of the band's European tour so that he can be home in time for the birth of his son. Filling in for him for the rest of the European dates is Emil Werstler of DAATH.

DeVries will be back on stage with CHIMAIRA for the band's U.S. tour with TRIVIUM, which kicks off on October 29.

Commented Matt: “This is going to be one of the happiest moments of my life and I want to thank the fans for understanding my absence. Emil is one of the most talented guitarists I have ever jammed with and I am fully confident he will do a fantastic job filling in. I'll be back on stage riffing in a few weeks.”

CHIMAIRA will play its tenth annual Christmas show on December 27 at the House Of Blues in the band's hometown Cleveland.

The band will embark on a tour of Australia and New Zealand in January 2010. Support on the trek will come from DOUBLE DRAGON. This will be CHIMAIRA's first headlining Australian tour, having previously played the country as a support act for IN FLAMES, BIOHAZARD and KORN.

Bakteria

Warning – this is possibly the most ridiculous video I have ever sent out, and definitely the one with the lowest budget. I hope. If you are easily offended, don’t watch (or turn the sound off).

BAKTERIA – video online!

Mexican filth metallers BAKTERIA just uploaded the brandn ew video to the title track of their upcoming debut album “Defecate! Suffocate! Mutilate! Masturbate!“ at this location: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDATm19M0Wg

“We are sick of all these nice and polished videos with poser-whimps. So we made it in our rehearsal room in Guadalajara. We cover our ugly faces to spare you the urge to puke…that's why! We are NOT ashamed of our lyrics!“ – Manuel, Pedro, Jesus and Umberto / BAKTERIA

“Defecate! Suffocate! Mutilate! Masturbate!“ is set to be unleashed on November 9th, 2009 via Anstalt Records.

Founded back in 1990, BAKTERIA was the first outfit to come up with the concept of an all Mexican metal band. The band recorded the now to be released debut in 1991. BAKTERIA recently signed a deal with inglorious Anstalt Records.

Anstalt Records is a division of Nuclear Blast Records GmbH.

Mnemic

MNEMIC – studio update

Danish fusion metallers MNEMIC just issued another update from the studio. The band recently entered Antfarm Studios with legendary producer Tue Madsen to record their new album entitled “Sons Of The System“ which is scheduled for an early 2010 release.

Check out www.sonsofthesystem.com for further info directly from the band.

“I can’t believe that we actually started tracking drums this week! This time around three years ago, we were doing the same thing at the TrackRecordStudios, in Los Angeles with Warren Riker. Oh boy, time flies when you are having fun…or getting old. Why don’t we just start from the beginning…At the end of 2007 I started composing the first Mnemic song, which I later trashed ’cause it simply sucked. It was uninspiring, regular metal, nothing new under the sun. Since then lots of songs have been trashed, haha…and the same goes for the other band members. We have had a hard time pinpointing where we wanted to go musically. We are 5 different individuals these days, with 5 different views on music. I listen to everything from the WU-TANG CLAN, CURTIS MAYFIELD to all sorts of drum’n'bass artists, to mostly the old metal records. The same goes for the others, we are not listening to the same metal albums that inspired us 6-7 years ago, we have different inspiration sources. This aspect did contribute to a lot of debate between us, and also helped shape the 15 songs we chose out of a big bulk of material. At the end of the day we are still a metal band, but with different inspiration sources. With this said, we are ready to fuck everyone up. So, before we started recording the drums, we also tryed to listen to some other productions that we liked. In fact we kind of came to an agreement of not having a superficial drum sound, where everything is cut, everything is edited, and in the end done by “Beat Detective” – we have actually never done that, for all of you non-believers, Brian knows how to play his stuff, its really that simple. Moving on to the sound, we want a simple sound, and first and for most a natural drum sound, wihtout sounding too dry, a la KYUSS or COROSSION OF CONFORMITY but more punchy and in your face. More like a Rick Rubin sound, where everything is more open, and unprocessed, think RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS or SLIPKNOT. We have simple groovy songs and we have complex songs, so Brian started of course warming up with some of the more simple songs, to get into the groove. At the moment we have tracked 6 songs out of 15, and the drumming sounds extremely solid! I can’t wait till we move on to the guitars…well, actually I can’t wait till we are done and have the final product in my hands!“

Pitbull Terrorist

PITBULL TERRORIST – REVEAL COVER ARTWORK AND POST NEW SONG AND CLIP

Terrorthrash underground activists PITBULL TERRORIST have just revealed the cover artwork of their upcoming release “C.I.A“ which will be unleashed on November 29th, 2009 via Anstalt Records.

Front terrorist Ursula states: “The designer of the C.I.A. cover got strict directions from the band, how they want it to appear. The cover itself has multiple symbolic items. The eagle with a raging pitbull head stands for the idea of taking action and saying things out loud. Very loud. The flag upside down is obvious. The system is in trouble and has gotten there all by itself. Shackles are being torn apart, which should be also happening in real life. People should not be slaved in modern democratic society. Take action and tear apart your shackles!”

Check out “Corpocrazy“ and “Dirt Bomb“ on www.myspace.com/pitbullterrorist and www.myspace.com/anstaltrecords

Textures

TEXTURES Take India By Storm Magazine forced to reprint current issue

Dutch mega-metallers TEXTURES have taken India by storm in an unprecedented manner. Despite having never setting foot in the country, and without ever officially releasing a record there, the band are featured on the cover of the nation’s biggest rock magazine, the ROCK STREET JOURNAL. The mag contains a 5 page interview with the band as well as a poster and a CD with three Textures tracks.

Within 3 days, every single one of the 50,000 copies of the magazine were sold out, and a re-print of the magazine is set to hit the shelves next week to feed the demand. This fantastic result is testament to how power of the Internet can showcase the incredible talent of a young band, in this case capturing the imaginations of all of one nation’s Metalheads who obviously know quality when they hear it.

The band are planning some shows there in November. Says vocalist Eric Kalsbeek:
“We are amazed about it and the support of the Indian Metal fans! We can't wait to come over and destroy the stages in India”

A little closer to home, TEXTURES play their final club show of their current album cycle at London’s UNDERWORLD next Thursday 1st October with ROMEO MUST DIE supporting. Don’t miss this last chance to see the mighty Dutch Metalheads before their next album cycle.

For more info check: http://www.myspace.com/textures

If you need review passes for the Underworld show please get in touch asap!

Anstalt Records

ANSTALT RECORDS opens its gates!

The world’s biggest independent heavy metal label NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS is proud to announce the foundation of the sublabel ANSTALT RECORDS which will open its gates these days to show the world how depraved it really is.

The motto: maximum measuring!
The concept: no concept!

At the moment the administration and the nursing staff are taking care of 3 highly mazed patients that must not be integrated into society at this point. These 3 patients can only be controlled with highly measured medicine:

Patient: BAKTERIA
Diagnosis: Filth Metal
Date of dischargement: November 13, 2009
Nurse: Joe.Blob@Anstalt-Records.com
Originally founded in 1992, BAKTERIA were the first ones to come up with the concept of an all Mexican metal band! If your into punk, sludge and crust and have an addiction to really filthy s**t, BAKTERIA is the right choice! As filthy as their lyrics and music the band is itself. Singer Umberto Torres reportedly ended a concert in Juarez, Mexico City by killing someone in the audience with a handgun – due to legal issues the band is also not allowed to tour in Germany, Canada and Ecuador. BAKTERIA AIN’T NUTHIN’ TA F**K WIT’!
www.myspace.com/b4kt3ri4

Patient: MILKING THE GOATMACHINE
Diagnosis: Goatgrind
Date of dischargement: November 13, 2009
Nurse: Joe.Blob@Anstalt-Records.com
Hailing from the planet GoatEborg where all creatures happen to have a goatlike behaviour and/or appearance, MILKING THE GOATMACHINE were founded in 2008 by Goatfreed and Goatleeb Udder. They came to planet Earth to spread the word of Goatgrind. Together with Anstalt Records the band is pursuing grinding world domination.
www.myspace.com/milkingthegoatmachine

Patient: PITBULL TERRORIST
Diagnosis: Terrorthrash
Date of dischargement: November 13, 2009
Nurse: Russ.Mammeln@Anstalt-Records.com
PITBULL TERRORIST or PBT is an ensemble of true freedom fighters of the early 21st century. Four activists with various nationalities, backgrounds and histories gathered together and aimed to launch a musical project to be remembered. The true identities behind the activists’ masks are untold for the sole purpose of carrying on the revolt as long as possible: without the intervention of several authorities somewhat eager to put an end to the ongoing secrecy of the leading quartet of the infamous PBPI (Pitbull Pack International). In their current location in Finland special law enforcements and several TARP-groups are after the first-hand info of their whereabouts. In the process of a proper counter strike the PBT prepared and established the second step of their agenda, the strike two of WOM-plan. For the public the strike is known as C.I.A. or Contraband International Audio.”

All patients are set to be discharged from the institute in November 2009! An earlier release is excluded!

The institute will take good care of all patients until then!

The administration and the nursing staff are looking forward to a lot of overdosed applications of medicine and wish all patients a nice stay in our establishment.

And when you feel hungry, horny and hot…you just rip off a bit from her to eat or f**k. But first you warm her up in the microwave.“ – Manuel Gonzales / BAKTERIA

BAKTERIA recently signed a deal with Anstalt Records which is a brand new launched division of Nuclear Blast Records.

“Defecate! Suffocate! Mutilate! Masturbate!“ is set to be released on November 16th, 2009 via Anstalt Records.
