Shining – streaming of new song available

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 6th February 2015 by Pieni

“The time has come to share a little bit of the darkness that will infect the world’s population in a few months. The song chosen for this specific event is called ‘Vilja & Dröm’ (Will & Dream). The track reminds me of our earlier days, when I was still mostly focusing on metal. However, it also represents a great leap into the terrible shift-shaping darkness that is our ninth album!” – these are the words of Shining-frontman Niklas Kvarforth regarding the new song that will be streaming on several European webzines until Sunday, before being available on the band’s official SoundCloud account (http://soundcloud.com/shining-official). In the UK, the webzine is Terrorizer: http://www.terrorizer.com/news/streams/shining-premiere-brand-new-song-exclusively-terrorizer

Cannibal Corpse confirmed for Damnation 2014

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 1st April 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

America’s most vulgar death metal band Cannibal Corpse have been confirmed as the Terrorizer stage headliners at this year’s Damnation Festival on 1st November at Leeds University Union. They will be joining the likes of Bolt Thrower, Saint Vitus and Raging Speedhorn for what is looking to be the heaviest and most extreme line-up in Damnation’s ten year history. This will also be the first time the band play Damnation Festival. The band comments:

We’ve been hearing about the Damnation festival from our fans for a while now, so we’re really excited we’re going to get the chance to play it this year. It’s clearly a killer festival and we’re stoked to be a part of it. See you all this fall!

Terrorizer publisher Miranda Yardley is also delighted to see death metal royalty top the stage the magazine has endorsed for the past decade. She added:

Terrorizer is thrilled to be supporting Damnation Festival for the tenth year, and to host a stage headlined by Cannibal Corpse truly is an honour.

Tickets are available for the low price of £36 from this location.

UNEARTH Introduce New Drummer

Posted in News with tags , , , , on 23rd January 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Fans that have seen Unearth live on their recent trips to Alaska, Japan and on their US and Canadian tour with Chimaira, may have noticed a new face on stage. The guy behind the kit has been none other than up-and-coming drummer, Nick Pierce.

Photo courtesy of Jeff ChanNick Pierce is a self taught drummer who’s been playing since age 10. He grew up playing for local bands in the Seattle/Tacoma area (Culling the Weak, Eterna Nocturna, Embalmed) as well as LA based band The Faceless. Nick first sat in behind the kit for Unearth in May of 2011 during their two show trip to Alaska. Unearth discovered Pierce on YouTube where he had been covering Unearth songs, among many other bands, on a series of videos on his YouTube channel.

Vocalist Trevor Phipps adds: “Nick is a beast of a drummer and a great guy to hang with. I look forward to jamming with him around the world for years to come.” Guitarist Buz McGrath compliments Pierce and says he has a “Great attitude, energy and the knowledge that we can throw the most insane riffs at him and he can create and adequately perform next level beats for said riffs makes it a little easier to sleep at night.”

Nick Pierce shares his excitement about joining Unearth: “I’ve been a fan of Unearth for many years and I’m excited to shred with a great group of guys and support our fans.”

A live video of Pierce performing “Watch It Burn” live on tour has been made available on Metal Blade TV HERE. Drum aficionados and fans should subscribe to Pierce’s youtube channel for more drum videos, as well as a new eight-minute extended drum solo, which can be seen HERE.

Unearth’s latest album, Darkness In The Light, is available everywhere now. The album has seen rave reviews, hundreds of spins on SiriusXM Liquid Metal, Full Metal Jackie and metal radio worldwide. Check out what’s been said so far…

“strong, dynamic songwriting…it highlights Unearth’s strengths superbly.” Decibel Magazine

“a whirling torrent of passion and aggression” 4/5, Terrorizer Magazine

“it’s the band’s reawakened urgency and positivity that makes this like discovering them for the first time again.” Metal Hammer Magazine

“Darkness In The Light is a maelstrom of melodic riffs, screamy shouts and enough noodling to keep Guitar Hero nerds happy. But it’s not chasing maidens and slaying dragons; Unearth have enough of the ’90s straight-edge hardcore scene still left in their blood to give the lyrics an impassioned warrior cry against corrupt politics and wavering faith.” 4/5, Alternative Press Magazine

Spires + Incassum + Support @ The Ringside, Hull [Live Review]

Posted in Gig, Live with tags , , , , , , on 27th November 2011 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Bands: Spires, Incassum, Infernal Creation
Location: The Ringside, Hull
Date: 26th November

As part of their Terrorizer-sponsored tour, the Manchester-based Spires and Incassum arrived in the grim city of Hull. The original line-up for the night consisted of Mister Sister Fister, Infernal Creation, Incassum and Spires. Unfortunately, Mister Sister Fister had to pull out last minute due to their drummer already being booked for at work for the night. After reviewing Incassum and Spires earlier this week for the site – and Infernal Creation for my “rivals” over at Denim and Leather, I already had an idea of what the night would consist.

Though I was tending the doors for the promoter, I had a perfect view of the stage as Hull’s very own misanthropic beast of a metal band, Infernal Creation, graced the room with their presence of stage. They’re definitely a band who need no introductions, however when the voice of misanthropy, Neiph, did introduce the band, he took the opportunity to announce their next song as well, by stating in a grim, almost-messianic way: “We are Infernal Creation… And we speak of the Insidious Gospel”. As I stated earlier, I already had an idea of what to expect for tonight but I didn’t expect Infernal Creation’s sound to be so aggressive and heavy live. The snarling screams and roaring of guitars, topped off with thunderous drums just made their performance so much better. The band played a few songs such as “War Is Worship” and “The Angel Of Endless Hunger” from the new album, The Serpent Seed Doctrine, and in all honestly, they sounded as good as the studio versions.

The female-fronted force of violent melodic metal that is Incassum wasted no time getting to the stage – Something that did impress since some bands do like to pansy foot around in the interval. In fact, they were all set to play when I was half way through smoking a roll-up. Fortunately I could hear them clearly outside while I was smoking. With female-fronted bands, there seems to be a stereotype that they all have operatic vocalists but the good thing about Incassum is that they don’t cater themselves to such stereotypes. Their In Vain EP is an example of this and their live performance certainly showed that they’re better than most female-fronted bands. The violent sounds of the guitars echoed well throughout the venue and the band’s set showed some clear influences of melodic and technical death metal. The thing that really did impress me the most about Incassum’s set – aside from the music – was the way that the frontwoman, Sharleen, so easily transited between roaring vocals mightier than thunder and a softer, more angelic vocal style almost as if it was as natural as breathing. Incassum made Arch Enemy sound like pop rock, a potentially blasphemous comment no doubt but if you’ve seen them live, you’ll agree. Their song “Cut Loose” certainly seemed to go down well with the crowd.

The headliner of the night were the extreme-prog. metal quartet that are Spires. I had already been assured by the guys in Infernal Creation that these guys are great live as Infernal had done a gig with them roughly a year and a half ago. They performed a truly tight set that displayed a masterful combination of progressive elements, more brutal sounds and a strong use of vocals. The solos were easy of the ears as well. Spires performed a new song as well – I think they said it was called “The Fevered Spirit”, either way, it was a masterful combination of aggression, progressive metal and strong vocal work. These guys are definitely a band I’d recommend everyone go see live. Though the opening act had dropped out last minute, the night’s entertainment was still provided by three great bands. Any of them would have gone down well as the headlining act as well and the people certainly got their £3’s worth.
