Heavy metal pioneers ACCEPT just finished an extensive European tour – and they are immediately back in the game with a new studio album! The record entitled »The Rise Of Chaos«, will be unleashed on August 4th, 2017. The band’s 4th studio release through Nuclear Blast will continue the tradition of its three predecessors – »Blood Of The Nations«, »Stalingrad«, and »Blind Rage« – with grandeur and precision.
GOD DETHRONED comments: “‘The World Ablaze’ is our final album in the WWI trilogy. We aimed to create an album that is very dynamic and diverse. It contains typical GD riffing with loads of melodies and catchy hooks. The songs are perfect for our live shows as they contain many mid-tempo parts combined with faster and more brutal parts. Diversity to the max! Dan Swanö mixed the album in his typical fashion but without robbing the band of its own identity. Mastering was handled at the Wisseloord Studios where they also mastered albums for bands like Rammstein among many others, and they put the icing on the cake. The album sounds crystal clear and heavy as fuck at the same time. We are very proud to present this album during our upcoming Serpent Fest album release shows early May!”
On June 16th, Brooklyn’s TOMBS will release their fourth full-length, The Grand Annihilation, via Metal Blade Records. Produced once again by Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Soilent Green, Belphegor, Hate Eternal), The Grand Annihilation remains rooted in the blackened, post-metallic sound that the band has become known for since 2007’s self-titled EP, while also being their most experimental record to-date.
BLOODCLOT – featuring true hardcore pioneers John Joseph (Cro-Mags), Todd Youth (Warzone, Murphy’s Law), Joey Castillo (ex-Queens of the Stone Age, Blast!), Nick Oliveri (ex-Queens of the Stone Age, Dwarves) – has announced USA tour dates with Negative Approach, in support of their upcoming album, ‘Up In Arms’. Due out July 14th via Metal Blade Records, ‘Up In Arms’ lives up to the rallying cry of the album’s title – the bursts of high energy hardcore act as the perfect accompaniment to John Joseph setting his sights on injustice and the seemingly endless flaws of the contemporary world. For a first preview of the record, the title track can be heard at: noisey.vice.com
