In what is a scant but wholly welcomed piece of news, Altar of Plagues have announced their new album title as Teethed Glory and Injury, due for release April 30th through Profound Lore. The new album is pegged to be markedly different than White Tomb and Mammal, supposedly featuring shorter songs, and according to vocalist/guitarist James Kelly, meshes electronic elements with a ferocity akin to Pig Destroyer’s Prowler In The Yard. More details are in a studio report interview HERE.
Pestilence will be releasing their third album since reforming, Obsideo, with Candlelight Records, announcing the new deal a few days ago. The album will be the follow-up to 2011’s poorly received Doctrine album. The Dutch death metal band’s core Patrick Mameli (vocals, guitar) and Peter Utwerwijk (guitar) remains intact with drummer David Haley of Psycroptic and bassist George Maier joining them for this recording. The band’s statement read: "Pestilence is very excited to announce that they have signed a recording deal with Candlelight Records. We feel that our new material is very special and innovative and that it needs the back up of a solid company like Candlelight to get it out there to the metal world."
Enabler have revealed some more details about their new EP, Shift of Redemption, the follow-up to last year’s stellar album, All Hail The Void. The 7” is being released by Think Fast Records on April 9th and includes four new slabs of metallic hardcore – ‘Shift of Redemption’, ‘Live Low’, ‘Sacrifice’, ‘Fall Selflessly’.
