Nearly one year has passed since Israeli thrash metal act Hammercult ,who moved to Berlin last year, released their third album Built For War. One year during where not only the whole world but also the international metal scene have changed. Hammercult have stayed abreast of those changes: more than ever before, the band impressed with their broad stylistic range, increasingly allowing – along with their unmistakable strengths – influences from the punk, hardcore and traditional heavy metal genres. The result was a true, intoxicating thrash metal manifesto with an inescapable knock-on effect.
Now they show their influences with unique cover versions of songs by Accept, Motörhead, Running Wild, Slayer and GG Allin. To give the fans as much as possible for their money they also put three of their signature songs on the digipak and LP version. The provoking artwork was created by Andreas Marshall, famous for his works for Kreator, Sodom and Blind Guardian.
Hammercult’s latest release “Legends Never Die” will be out on Steamhammer/SPV on 17 June 2016 as a digipak version, limited LP version and download.

In 2013, Aggronautix published GG Allin “My Prison Walls”, a limited edition hard cover collector’s book wrapped in black saifu cloth and decorated / titled in red foil blood stamping. Each book was individually numbered and shrink-wrapped for protection and preservation. After the 2500 copies have been sold through, the book will not be re-printed. (According to Aggronautix there are still some available, but not many)

Now, “My Prison Walls” is available for Kindle (at the reasonable price – $5.99) opening the door for legions of fans to explore GG’s prison era memoirs without the $60 SRP. The 208 page book contains letters, illustrations, prose, and GG’s own personal accounts of his time spent in prison.

In addition, there are over 40 pieces of art and prose by Allin, plus correspondence with his family members, convicted serial killer John Wayne Gacy, Jeff Clayton of ANTiSEEN, and many others.

Black Crown Initiate Announce New LP Details

Thomas continues on their new release, “we feel it is a more than fitting next chapter for the band; one that we are truly proud and excited to enter. We hope you all enjoy it too. See you on the road!”

PA beard enthusiasts BLACK CROWN INITIATE today have announced some brand new details surrounding their new release, due out later this year. The band will release Selves We Cannot Forgive on July 22, 2016 via Entertainment One Music (eOne). The tracklist and visually mindbending cover art created by Travis Smith (Opeth, Devin Townsend, Avenged Sevenfold) is also being revealed today. “We’ve been through a great deal as a band since our last release,” says guitarist Andy Thomas. “We’ve grown a great deal as writers, players, and people and put everything we had into this one.”

Recorded and mixed by Carson Slovak & Grant McFarland (August Burns Red, Texas In July, From Ashes To New) at Atrium Audio Recording Studio’s in Lancaster PA, Selves We Cannot Forgive will be the follow up to the buzzworthy debut LP The Wreckage of Stars released at the end of 2014. The Wreckage of Stars also propelled the band into the international touring act it is today. BCI quickly found themselves on the road with the likes of Behemoth, Deicide, Napalm Death and Voivod.

Selves We Can Not Forgive, the band’s sophomore album with Entertainment One, is a lean and focused collection that jettisons the extraneous fat found too often within ambitious metal bands, striking a balance between fearless adventurousness and methodical might. It follows The Wreckage of Stars, which together with their self-financed Song of the Crippled Bull EP introduced Black Crown Initiate’s unapologetic exploration of everything from Friedrich Nietzsche and Greek Sophist Gorgias to Hinduism, Buddhism, and indigenous mysticism, with a pragmatic skepticism.

Thomas continues on their new release, “we feel it is a more than fitting next chapter for the band; one that we are truly proud and excited to enter. We hope you all enjoy it too. See you on the road!”

Black Crown Initiate have worked their way into the heavy music community’s collective consciousness with steady determination. Likeminded supporters who made the thrilling discovery of songs like “A Great Mistake,” “The Fractured One,” and “Withering Waves” are rewarded in kind by the continued evolution on Selves We Can Not Forgive. As Black Crown Initiate continuously proves, heavy metal and heavy intelligence don’t have to be mutually exclusive. These men are conjuring an awe inspiring body of work that is as unstoppable as it was inevitable, like existence itself. This is high-minded art delivered with a guttural growl.

Genexus charted in several countries around the globe, coming in at #13 on the World Top 40 Chart, and once again solidifying the band’s stature as an international force!
