Southern-fried hardcore metal hybrid ALL HAIL THE YETI will release their full-length concept album, entitled Screams From A Black Wilderness, on April 8, 2016 via Minus Head Records. The album concept, based on classic campfire-circle style horror stories, presents a different story with each track. Screams From A Black Wilderness features a heavier, grimier and considerably more advanced version of the ALL HAIL THE YETI fans have come to know since their inception.

Vocalist Connor Garritty reveals that this track in particular steps outside the overall horror theme of the album. Mr. Murder was originally written as a surprise tribute to Garritty’s best friend, penned before his untimely passing last year. The band decided to use the track on this record, immortalizing Connor’s friend in music. “Mr. Murder was written about my best friend Matt who passed away last year. He was one of the most influential people for me growing up and throughout my music career. The song was originally written in tribute to him and his unbelievable strength and passion for life. He left us unexpectedly before I could show him the song. It was supposed to be a surprise, almost a thank you to him for helping in more ways than he knew.
Garritty adds that having Brock Lindow on the track was fitting, as he and Matt were also friends, adding more emotional depth to the track. “We knew early in the writing of the record that we wanted Brock Lindow on the album. Brock and Matt were friends as well so it seemed fitting that this would be the song he sang on. It was special for me to have Brock on the album and this song in particular because he is one of my best friends as well and such an influence to me as a vocalist. Mr. Murder has become an anthem to my best friend immortalizing him forever. It is very emotional for me when performing this. I go between sadness and great happiness by the end of the song.”

After exploding onto the death metal scene in 2015 with their Leprosy-inspired full-length debut Savage Land, death metal wrecking crew GRUESOME (featuring current and former members of Exhumed, Possessed, Malevolent Creation, and Derketa) returns in 2016 with a new EP entitled Dimensions Of Horror. Produced by the band and co-produced and recorded by Jarrett Pritchard at New Constellation RMP Studios in Orlando, FL, Dimensions of Horror is a gruesome salute to DEATH’s iconic Scream Bloody Gore and once again features cover art by the legendary Ed Repka (DEATH, Atheist, Massacre). A six-song slab of grisly, bone-breaking death metal jams, Dimensions Of Horror continues the development of GRUESOME‘s homage to the founding fathers of the genre and proves that no matter the decade, old-school death metal is always relevant, always savage, and always irresistible.

Dimensions of Horror is due out this May 20, 2016 on CD/LP/CS/Digital worldwide. Physical pre-orders via Relapse.com can be found here, and digital pre-orders via GRUESOME‘s Bandcamp page are available at this location.

Blood For You: A Literary Tribute to GG Allin

GG Allin was confined to a world where he couldn’t fulfill his potential. He punched and kicked at the boundaries, eager for something bigger, something crazier, something much more fucked up.

gg

Think GG was extreme? You don’t know the half of it.

GG Allin’s exploits are legendary. The music, the shows, the violence, the bodily fluids. But GG Allin was confined to a world where he couldn’t fulfill his potential. He punched and kicked at the boundaries, eager for something bigger, something crazier, something much more fucked up. But the real world refused to give him the adventures he needed.

Now, thanks to underground fiction’s most talented scumfucs, GG is cast in a series of adventures that truly befit his outlaw spirit. In these pages, GG Allin is a secret agent, engaging in cult-smashing missions in exchange for dirty sex with George and Barbara Bush. He’s a shit-eating, spaceship-piloting and time-traveling savior of humanity. He’s an orisha, called upon to save prisoners from ‘roid rage mutant guards. He’s one half of a deepfried onion ring ouroboros with his soulmate John Wayne Gacy. He’s thousands of clones living inside your giant robot body.

“Blood For You” is a 190 page 8.5″ x 5.5″ book edited by MP Johnson and Sam Richard and published by WeirdPunk Books

Pittsburgh Death/Thrash Outfit Hemotoxin to Release ‘Biological Enslavement’ in April on Unspeakable Axe Records‏

Categorizing what kind of music HEMOTOXIN makes is harder than it would seem. Their brand of melodic death/thrash springs from a whole host of metal influences: progressive death metal (e.g. DEATH, ATHEIST), classic thrash (MEGADETH, SLAYER and others), and even some black metal and prog rock.

 Progressive Death/Thrash Outfit HEMOTOXIN will release sophomore full-length Biological Enslavement April 15 on Unspeakable Axe Records.

Categorizing what kind of music HEMOTOXIN makes is harder than it would seem.  Their brand of melodic death/thrash springs from a whole host of metal influences: progressive death metal (e.g. DEATH, ATHEIST), classic thrash (MEGADETH, SLAYER and others), and even some black metal and prog rock.  Any given song could groove, then thrash, then send you through a dizzying labyrinth of elaborate riffs and ideas.  Somehow they juggle all these influences and produce from it a cohesive whole, while keeping the aggression high and the song’s core melodic components front and center.

Whatever they are doing, HEMOTOXIN do it very well, and they’ve only gotten tighter and more adventurous as a unit since their 2013 debut.  Now their follow-up full-length is ready to be unleashed.  At 9 tracks and just 35 succinct minutes, Biological Enslavement will take you on a journey more interesting than most albums twice its length.
Biological Enslavement will be made available for pre-order in mid-March through the Unspeakable Axe Store and label Bandcamp page.
Track Listing:
1. Decadence
2. Regression
3. Minus Human
4. Not of this World
5. Forgotten Faces
6. The Alchemist
7. Bleak Prognosis
8. A Journey Through Dreams
9. Transparent Eyes
