“The songs on Coma Ecliptic came together in 2014 (and some of them even earlier than that), so it feels amazing to finally present the album live in full, the way it was intended to be heard. It’s our most theatrical album yet and we’ll be looking to bring that element to the stage as best we can; not to mention how great it will be to share the stage with Devin + crew again.” – Dan/Between The Buried And Me

Prog-Metal Outfit Cyborg Octopus to Release Genre-Warping New Album ‘Learning To Breathe’ on May 20, 2016‏

In a band-issued statement, CYBORG OCTOPUS states, “What does metal sound like when it’s fused with funk, a saxophone, a scatting vocalist, a slapping bassist and a nightmarish acid trip? You are about the experience…. The DiscoBrain!”

cyborg octopus

Bay Area progressive metal quintet CYBORG OCTOPUS have been making big waves in the underground metal community, specifically with the recent release of their “Data_M1nefield” video.

Exhibiting influences ranging from Soreption and The Faceless to James Brown and Beethoven, CYBORG OCTOPUS seeks to execute and implement elements of all the music they love into one cohesive package. They push themselves beyond the boundaries of what one would expect from an average “metal band”.

To preview the upcoming release of their new full-length album Learning To Breathe on May 20th, CYBORG OCTOPUS have unleashed their new track ‘DiscoBrain!’ Each song on Learning To Breathe is completely different from the last – each explores a completely different genre. With “DiscoBrain!”, the band tastefully combines funk with metal.

In a band-issued statement, CYBORG OCTOPUS states, “What does metal sound like when it’s fused with funk, a saxophone, a scatting vocalist, a slapping bassist and a nightmarish acid trip? You are about the experience…. The DiscoBrain!”
CYBORG OCTOPUS has toured up and down the west coast, performing shows with respective progressive metal acts such as Fallujah and Archspire. The band will perform two northern California shows in May, the latter scheduled as their official CD release show. See below for all confirmed dates.
CYBORG OCTOPUS Tour Dates:
May 6 – Crockett, CA @ Toot’s Tavern
May 20 – Walnut Creek, CA @ The Redhouse – CD Release show

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Part Ways With Guitarist Ryan Knight And Announce US Tour With Fallujah And Disentomb

Vocalist Trevor Strnad comments: “We are very excited to unleash this absolutely crushing lineup upon you all and to play the much requested Unhallowed album in its entirety.

the black dahlia murder

After releasing their new album, Abysmal, last year to critical acclaim and headlining both part I and part II of the massive IndieMerch Tour, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER has announced another headlining trek – this time, taking the show back to their roots. With Fallujah and Disentomb as support, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER plans to play their first full-length, 2003’s Unhallowed, in its entirety, performing at intimate venues across the US that haven’t seen the band since their debut was released.

Vocalist Trevor Strnad comments: “We are very excited to unleash this absolutely crushing lineup upon you all and to play the much requested Unhallowed album in its entirety. The songs are sounding better than ever before, and we can’t wait for you to feast your ears on our debut album as it was meant to be heard. We will also be playing some bangers from our new album, Abysmal, and the rest of the catalog…Come out and bring your friends!”

In related news, Brandon Ellis will join THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER on the road as the band’s touring guitarist and replacement for Ryan Knight, who amicably parted ways with the group. In regards to his departure, Knight comments: “After nearly seven years with THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, I feel the time has come for me to step down and focus on other aspects of my life. The decision to leave was very difficult, yet necessary I feel for me to ultimately be happy and keep moving forward. I feel very lucky to have had the best band-mates/crew — past and present — to traverse the world, guzzle beers, and bring the rock with every night. Thank you, guys. I’d like to give a huge thank you to all our fans for being so cool to me over the years, and all the hardworking people over at Metal Blade Records for their support, and general badassery. In the meantime, I’ll still be teaching guitar, working on new music, and just getting pretty domestic in general. Thanks again!”

Strnad adds: “When Ryan first joined the band, he drove from the hospital where his first child had just been born to begin practicing and writing with us, on the eve of the recording of our Deflorate album. In his years with the band, he made a lot of sacrifices to be with us and uphold our insanely demanding touring and recording schedule. He always gave us one-hundred percent, and for that I thank him. He is an incredible musician and creative force. It was exciting to make new material with him, and his wealth of knowledge has left its stamp on the band’s music forever. I always knew that his time in the band would be limited, and it has now come time for him to go home and be with his family. Ryan, being the stand-up dude that he is, told us of his plans to leave the band more than a year ago, and with heavy hearts we began to plan for THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER’s future. We admire that Ryan went to such lengths to make his departure as easy on the band as possible, even going as far as to help us find a talented leadsman in Brandon Ellis — who has been lending us his tremendous guitar skills on the current TBDM tour. Knight is one of my best friends and I wish him the best in everything he does. He will always have a place here in the TBDM family. I look back at our time together with nothing but gratitude.”
