Chris Barnes lends voice for upcoming animated series, ‘The Olympians’!


For the first time ever, Six Feet Under’s Chris Barnes will make a special voice-over appearance on an animated series: The Olympians – a comedy about the Greek gods falling on hard times and struggling to find a place in modern society. Recently screened at the Portland Comedy Film Fest (where it won “Best Animated Comedy”!), The Olympians is directed by Bob Spang (Lilo & Stitch, Brother Bear) and scored by Cormac Bluestone (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), with voices by Jon Etheridge (Battlefield Friends, Doraleous and Associates, jonnyethco on youtube), Jimmy Euringer (Mindless Self Indulgence, Guardians of the Galaxy 2), Stevic Mckay (Twelve Foot Ninja), Bill Gaal (Nothingface, In For the Kill, Knives out), Rob Kersey (Psychostick), Sean Zatorsky (Chimaira, Daath, Sinsaenum), Jason Suecoff (producer, mixer, guitarist and songwriter), Richard Thomas (Mushroomhead, Ventana), Matt Foran (Circus of Dead Squirrels,Ventana) – in addition to Chris Barnes, as “Chad”.

Chris Barnes comments: “Lending my voice for an animated feature is something I haven’t had the privilege of attempting or being involved with…So I feel pretty lucky and excited to be involved with The Olympians!!

Six Feet Under recently released their 12th studio album, ‘Torment‘, via Metal Blade Records. As a new leap in intensity, ‘Torment‘ gives fans plenty of classic Six Feet Under groove, with a much more aggressive approach and blast beats throughout. This is a cantankerous Six Feet Under with absolutely nothing to prove.

Six Feet Under will headline the ‘X – Mass In Hell’ Festival this winter, with more tour dates to be announced soon.

Six Feet Under line-up:
Chris Barnes – vocals
Jeff Hughell – bass
Marco Pitruzzella – drums
Jack Owen – guitar
Ray Suhy – guitar

Chris McCarthy of Internal Bleeding Interviewed

Chris McCarthy of Internal Bleeding Interviewed in Oakland, California while on tour with Vader, Micwabe, Voices Of Ruin & Sacrificial Slaughter.

On new music from Internal Bleeding?

Its gonna be, I’m gonna say a lot more streamlined than the last few, I’m gonna say its gonna be a lot more intense than the last few, its gonna be more pummeling, we’re really gonna work hard on it. (Vocalist) Joe Marchese is an insane songwriter and riff writer and to be able to work with him and Chris simultaneously, and some of my ideas, I think we’re gonna up come up with some shit. We already have about four or five songs in the can at the moment that we’re going to go back and look at, after this tour and probably change a few things, we have a ton of other riffs and things ready to rock. I think people will be pretty pleased with the direction that we’re going in, its gonna be catchy and pummeling and intense at the same time

On religion?

When I was going for confirmation, I was at a class, with a bunch of other kids my age, and the priest who was conducting it said “our parish here in Bayshore, New York is a special one, we actually have a piece of the actual cross”. I asked the priest, can we see it and he replied “no we can’t show it to anyone”. I was like ahhhh, Santa Claus for adults, I get it, bye bye, that’s about it, that’s the last time I believed in any of that horseshit.

On April 20th, Internal Bleeding drummer and veteran FDNY firefighter Bill Tolley passed away after falling five stories from a rooftop while battling a two-alarm apartment fire in Queens, New York. The tragedy touched family, friends, his bandmates, the city of New York, and the worldwide metal community.
Many fans expressed concerns as to whether Internal Bleeding would continue and more specifically, whether they would still take part in the upcoming Strike Of The Empire US tour with Vader.
“Bill was having trouble getting all the vacation time needed to complete the tour, so we had a backup drummer in place and ready to go. He will be filling in,” wrote the band on their official Facebook page late last week. “Bill would want it no other way. When we were discussing the problems with his vacation, he told Chris [Pervelis] something along the lines of, ‘You’ve gotta do it, bro. Fuck it, no matter what happens, Internal Bleeding needs to go on. You gotta do it, asshole.’ So we think it’s only appropriate that we do this tour, continue with the band, and continue to release music in Bill’s memory, and in the memory for all those metalhead men and women who have fallen. There is no other way. Metal is our life. Our love. Our passion. And to our fans, you are family: we don’t leave family hanging. We got your back, because you always had ours. Our backup drummer will be announced soon. Out of respect to Bill, please don’t ask. Love and metal always: Chris, Shaun, Chris, and Joe”
The Strike Of The Empire US tour will commence on May 27th in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and run through June 16th in New York City, New York. Additional support will be provided by Sacrificial Slaughter, Voices Of Ruin, and Micawber.

 Venom Inc. Return with New Full-Length Album, “Avé”

Regardless of your take on black metal forefathers Venom, they are the undisputed originators of extreme metal as we know it. Almost 40 years after their inception, the revitalized 1989-1992 line-up of guitarist Jeff “Mantas” Dunn, vocalist/bassist Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan and drummer Anthony “Abaddon” Bray have returned with a monster of an album.

After months of anticipation, VENOM INC. will release their upcoming full-length opus, entitled Avé, on August 11, 2017 via Nuclear Blast.

 
VENOM INC. was born during an impromptu live set at 2015’s Keep it True Festival in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany. The on-stage reunion was a rousing success amongst Venom fans and music industry personnel alike, and although it was originally only set up for fun, Dolan began receiving numerous show offers for VENOM INC. from booking agents around the world. What started as a live set to celebrate Venom‘s legacy immediately turned into a serious reunion discussion. The rest is history.
 
While unexpected at the outset, the end result of this reunion is an album that true Venom fans will gladly add to the top of their playlists. Vocalist/bassist Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan says, “We tried to shape Avé so that it comes at you dark, then it gets bright and heavy and just keeps growing into some kind of monster.”
 
Avé track listing:
01. Ave Satanas      
02. Forged In Hell   
03. Metal We Bleed              
04. Dein Fleisch       
05. Blood Stained   
06. Time To Die       
07. The Evil Dead    
08. Preacher Man  
09. War       
10. I Kneel To No God          
11. Black N Roll        
 
Going in to writing Avé, VENOM INC. realized their live performance was the key to creating an album that would be a metal classic. It was clear that any songs the trio came up with had to have the intensity, the honesty and the aggression that was happening for VENOM INC. in a live situation. Simply put, they needed to translate what they do on stage onto a record. Not once did they look back on the Venom catalogue and think, “We have to write another ‘Black Metal’ or another ‘Schizo’…” The focus is on VENOM INC. and everything the rejuvenated three-piece do in the here and now.
Dolan adds, “Expect 100% pure, honest, solid, hard, dark, thought-provoking metal… like it was, is and forever shall be. Classic old-school, but with the ferocity and energy that we display in our live show. We are proud of this album and our new home at Nuclear Blast, as well as our whole team – management, PR, agents, sponsors and most of all, YOU. Thank you! See you somewhere on this Blood Stained Earth!”
 
VENOM INC. will kick off their upcoming Blood Stained Earth headline tour, featuring support from Goatwhore, Toxic Holocaust and The Convalescence, on September 1. Tickets for each date of the Blood Stained Earth tour are on sale today, at 10:00AM local time, at the links below.

Alestorm Hit The Charts And Prepare For Warped Tour

Oh wow! With their brand new album ‘No Grave But The Sea’, out now on Napalm Records, heavy metal pirates Alestorm have hit several official album charts!

This unstoppable party machine where the rum flows freely and who once defined their own music as “Stupid songs about getting drunk and stealing treasure”, has now reached their highest chart positions to date and prove, that they belong to the TOP of the most acclaimed and finest heavy metal bands the worldwide scene has to offer.

Says the band:
“For an awful band like Alestorm, that’s incredibly impressive, and it’s higher than anything we’ve ever achieved before! Thank you to everyone who bought an album and made this possible!”

And they promise: “Oh yeah, the coolest thing about this is, we charted higher than the new Shakira album, and she’s an international pop sensation! Does this mean we’ll be doing the theme tune for the next FIFA World Cup? Maybe. Does this mean we’ll dress in leather bikinis and record a cover of “Whenever, Wherever”? Definitely.”

To celebrate Alestorm’s brand new record live, alongside European Festival shows the band is about to kick off the Vans Warped Tour this summer, and will return to Europe for the first part of their ‘No Grave But The Sea World Tour soon. Expect a kick ass set of sing-along anthems, drunken partying, crazy pirate mosh pits, and of course: giant inflatable rubber ducks!
