Battlecross returns to Pittsburgh w/ Death Angel, 3 Inches Of Blood, Revocation, Diamond Plate @ Altar Bar

Our brothers in arms Battlecross return to Pittsburgh with an amazing lineup of talent: Death Angel, 3 Inches Of Blood, Revocation, and Diamond Plate all at Altar Bar on 10/31!  One hell of a way to spend Halloween!

To cap off an extremely successful 2013, Battlecross has announced that they will be supporting Death Angel on their fall headlining tour! Battlecross will join the tour’s other supporting acts 3 Inches of Blood, Revocation, and Diamond Plate for a tour that begins on October 18 in San Francisco and wraps on November 10 in Santa Ana, CA. Tickets are on today/tomorrow in each city.

A new performance demonstration video for “Flesh & Bone” from “War of Will” has been posted to metalblade.com/battlecross. The video features Tony Asta, Don Slater, and Hiran Deraniyagala performing their individual parts to the track that proved to be a fan favorite on the road. “Flesh & Bone” was the soundtrack to walls of death all summer long on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, and popular metal blog, skullsnbones.com, even put together a compilation of fan-filmed walls of death from different cities on the tour. Watch those videos now at skullsnbones.com HERE!

“War of Will” debuted at #134 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, #118 on the top current albums chart, #2 on the heatseeker chart, #15 on the current hard music chart, #16 on the hard music overall chart, and #32 on the independent albums chart. It didn’t stop here though, as the band also debuted in Canada’s Soundscan charts coming in at #178 Top 200 Current and #25 Hard Music Charts while also landing on the iTunes charts for release date at #103 on the Top 200, #10 on Rock, and #2 on Metal! This marks the band’s first ever Billboard chart debut! “War of Will” also peaked at #3 on the US iTunes metal chart on the day of release.

“another essential listen for thrash fans worldwide” Big Cheese Magazine (UK)

“The level of musical and compositional progression here is startling, to be quite honest…The effect as a whole is energetic and fist-pumping to the extreme, ushering in a beacon of hope for American metal in 2013.” Zero Tolerance Magazine (UK)

“Get ready for Battlecross to move up to headlining status by the conclusion of this album’s touring cycle. War Of Will is a rallying cry for American metal, synthesizing the best of all sides of the extreme, thrash, and modern genres to champion for the genre.” DeadRhetoric.com

Oderus of GWAR checks in with PITTSBURGH MUSIC MAGAZINE to talk Battle Maximus/ Live at Mr. Smalls 9/14

Just got off the phone with Oderus Urungus, leader and  intergalactic humanoid barbarian of GWAR, where we talked about their new release Battle Maximus.  I have had the pleasure of listening to the entire release and I have to tell you that it is the strongest effort that GWAR has ever released in my humble opinion.  GWAR gets overshadowed by their show rather than their musicianship for reasons that are obvious had you ever witnessed a GWAR show, and that is not to slight their musical prowess in any way…its just their show is that amazing and fun.  But, with this album GWAR can silence the naysayers and critics who say that all GWAR can do is throw fake blood and jump around in costumes.  True fans have been clued in for years and now many may open their minds and ears to the fact that there is much more going on sonically.  GWAR’s Battle Maximus features twelve brand new tracks that not only honor their departed ally, but tells the story of GWAR’s latest struggle against what may be their greatest enemy yet…the insidious “Mr. Perfect”, who has travelled through time itself to steal the power of GWAR–the power of immortality, and use this power to mutate the human race into his twisted vision of what the “perfect” human should be.   Listen here as we talk to Oderus about the new album and practicing for the tour, The GWARBQ, Fox Channel, Syria, G-pen vaporizer endorsements, and what we should do with “celebutards”like Miley Cyrus…

Crossfaith Announces New EP

Japan – November 2006. CROSSFAITH are born.

Unique in their home country of Japan, CROSSFAITH combine metalcore, hardcore, samples and electronica to create groundbreaking music that transcends genres. Their 2009 debut album ‘The Artificial Theory For The Dramatic Beauty’ (Zestone Records) served as the catalyst which kick-started the Japanese screamo / metalcore scene and they have been at the top of their game ever since.

It didn’t take long for the bug to catch – soon after their debut release the band found themselves opening for a diverse set of acts such as Machine Head, Hatebreed, August burns Red, Piece The Veil, blessthefall and Alesana to name but a few before playing to thousands of fans at the prestigious Loud Park Festival in Japan.2010 saw the phenomenon spread west – ‘The Artificial Theory…’ received a European release on Gan-Shin records and was met with critical acclaim throughout. With an unstoppable work ethic the band hit the studio to record their sophomore release ‘The Dream, The Space’ with producer Andrew Wade (who’s credits include A Day To Remember). Released in Japan in April 2011, the band took to the road to promote the record, playing to 10,000 fans at Summer Sonic festival which helped garner interest from infamous US label Tragic Hero. Soon the band toured outside of Japan for the first time, opening for Parkway Drive across China and Alesana in South Asia.

After blowing crowds away on their debut UK tour in support of ‘Of Mice & Men’, the band return to the UK on November 10th as part of the Vans Warped Tour at London’s Alexandra Palace – while in the meantime making their mark in the rest of the World.

Crossfaith now prepare to release their brand new ‘Zion’ EP Worldwide.

Recorded with the legendary ‘Machine’ (Lamb of God/Everytime I Die/Four Year Strong) in New York; ‘Zion’ features 6 tracks of breakneck, electro-infused energy and invention.

Lead track ‘Monolith’ has already got fans salivating, with BBC Radio 1 tastemaker Zane Lowe proclaiming the track as his ‘next hype’.

Hatebreed, Whitechapel, All Shall Perish, & Deez Nuts Tear Up Stage AE 11/11/12

On the last night of their 10 Years of Perseverance Tour together, Hatebreed, Whitechapel, All Shall Perish, and Deez Nuts came to throw down one last time in Pittsburgh at Stage AE on the Northside. An unusually thin crowd, due to the simultaneous Steeler game, got the intimate treat of a lifetime with some surviving legends and some legends in the making.

Hatebreed brought the reputation they have built for so many years and backed it up with a hardcore set that had fans belting out the tunes in unison with the band. For many it was a throwback to their youthful times and the energy of the band and crowd combined for one eruptive set.

Relative newbies compared to Hatebreed’s career span, Whitechapel and All Shall Perish showed why they both are at the top of their genre. Some in the crowd were a bit put off by the growling lyrics that are not as easily understood as the headliners. But, there is a legion of fans who love the stylings of these bands. Many in the crowd sang right along with Whitechapel, knowing every word, including the new stuff. All Shall Perish also won over quite a few of that crowd who may not be as familiar with them. They had an outstanding set as well of in your face metal that combines guttural vocals, quick paced pounding rhythms and technically proficient guitars. The only band that seemed out of place was Deez Nuts who attempted to entertain the crowd with their brand of rap and hardcore metal with a Brooklyn attitude. Pittsburgh may not have responded very well, but there is a certain niche for bands like this, unfortunately for them they went the way of Fred Durst.

The album is produced by the band with co-producer assistance from world-renowned metal producers Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold) and Chris “Zeuss” Harris (Suicide Silence, All That Remains, Shadows Fall).

Guitarist Wayne Lozinak states, “I’m very excited that the album is tracked! It was a great experience working with Zeuss and Josh Wilbur on this one. Every song is heavy, straight and to the point, in keeping with the traditional HATEBREED sound. Can’t wait to put some of these songs in the set and start playing them live!”

HATEBREED bassist Chris Beattie went on to say, “This is the album that HATEBREED fans have been waiting for – catchy, ignorant and full of energy!”

HATEBREED Announces “10 Years of Perseverance” Fall 2012 Headline Tour

HATEBREED is excited to announce the upcoming “10 Years of Perseverance” fall tour, a United States headline tour to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the band’s ground-breaking 2002 major-label debut, Perseverance. The tour features direct support from Whitechapel and special guests All Shall Perish and Deez Nuts, and kicks off on September 13th in Clifton Park, NY.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 8th. In addition, an exclusive pre-sale will begin on Wednesday, June 6th. HATEBREED will also be offering an exclusive VIP Diehard Package that includes a Meet and Greet, Commemorative Diehard Laminate, Poster and more! Make sure to head over to http://www.hatebreed.com/VIP for all ticketing and VIP Diehard details.

Perseverance is recognized worldwide as a landmark album in HATEBREED’s musical catalog—an album that skyrocketed the band to immediate leader-of-the-pack status after its release. Released on March 26, 2002, the band’s second full-length studio album blasted open the doors of American DIY Hardcore in mainstream culture with songs such as ‘I Will Be Heard’, ‘A Call For Blood’ and the album’s title track, ‘Perseverance’. Since the release of Perseverance, the fusion of hardcore and metal has been emulated and evolved relentlessly, but never duplicated with the same originality and brutality that HATEBREED accomplished with their first major-label release.

Perseverance debuted within the top 50 of the Billboard Top 200 chart and has since gone on to sell roughly half a million copies worldwide.

The band just reported that they have finished the drum tracks.
