EXHUMED To Release Re-Recorded Debut Album “Gore Metal: A Necrospective 1998-2015”

Exhumed have announced the re-release of their 1998 debut full length, Gore Metal. But rather than being a simple remastering, the band have re-recorded the entire record. The resulting Gore Metal: A Necrospective 1998-2015 will be released through Relapse on February 6 (Germany/Benelux), Feburary 9 (UK/World) and February 10 (North America). On the “new” record, vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey states:

“I’m super pumped that we got the chance to re-record Gore Metal. I don’t think any of us were happy with how it turned out the first time around, so getting another shot at it meant a lot to me personally. I was also really excited to have our old friend Ross Sewage reprise his vocals on the new version, ensuring that it still sounds like that era of EXHUMED, though things are a lot more audible this time around!”

The album artwork, track listing and a stream of “Open the Abscess” can found after the break.

Pre-orders for the album can be found here.

The band’s current touring schedule with Aborted, Origin and Miasmal as well as their upcoming trek with Napalm Death, Voivod, Iron Reagan and Black Crown Initiate can be found below as well.

Former Member of THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Starts Grind “Supergroup”

According to the reliable bros over at Metalsucks, former drummer of The Black Dahlia MurderShannon Lucas, is currently working on putting together a new grind project featuring Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder) on vocals and Shane Embury (Napalm Death) on bass. Less notably the group features former Wartorn guitarist, Adam Faris. The group was originally conceived by Lucas prior to joining TBDM, but was put on the side line due to the groups busy schedule.

Apparently the guitar parts have been finished for quite some time and the band is just waiting for Embury to lay down some bass riffs before the ball really gets rolling. As of now, the group remains nameless but will be entering the studio in April to record vocals and drums for their first release. We will keep you updated as info is released.

This Converge Death split has had me in constant boner mode since I first heard about it and now we have a chance to preview this material. Yes! You get thirty second samples from both bands performing their first tracks on the split. Check it out below and, after you clean up your computer screen, leave a comment expressing your excitement. Enjoy.

The Meh I Feed: NAPALM DEATH Release New Music Video

I love Napalm Death, but no matter how awesome everyone said their new album was, I wasn’t really into it. Time Waits For No Slave was amazing, but Utilitarian was kinda meh in my eyes. Not really sure why, there was just a lot of stuff happening on that album that rubbed me the wrong way. Kinda like the clean vocals on the song “The Wolf I Feed.” That whole track is just kinda…. Yeah. Anyway, Napalm Death have released a new music video for that track. The video doesn’t really do it for me, but yeah. Check it out below.

Blink Of An Eye: Guinness Book of World Records No Longer Listing “Shortest…” Records Held

As any of you out there should know, especially if you’re grindfreaks, that the Guinness World Records for shortest song and music video are held by Napalm Death and Brutal Truth respectively. The two grindcore bands have held these records for a long time and now it appears that Guinness will no longer be listing said “shortest” World Records. They stated the following:

“The nature of competing to make something the ‘shortest’ by its very nature trivialises the activity being carried out, and Guinness World Records has been forced to reject many claims of this kind. As such, we have been forced to cease listing records for the shortest song, shortest poem and indeed the shortest concert.”

The above statement was actually not made towards the current Record-holders, it was actually in response to Earache Records latest facemelter, Earache: Worlds Shortest Album which consists of 13 tracks in less than 1:30. Yes, that’s right. Thirteen power-packed grinding punches. Featuring track by grind heavyweights Napalm Death, Brutal Truth, Wormrot and Anal Cunt but also tracks by bands like Morbid Angel and Lawnmower Deth, this release is pretty killer and it’s only $4.99 on iTunes. So yeah. Guinness are douchebags and Earache are spiffy. Check out this compilation and enjoy the classic Napalm Death‘s “You Suffer” below and see the full track list for The Worlds Shortest Album.
