Legendary death metal unit, SIX FEET UNDER, dropped the infernal bounty of their Crypt Of The Devil full-length upon North America yesterday via Metal Blade Records. Composed by renowned growl monarch, Chris Barnes with Cannabis Corpse bassist/vocalist Phil "Landphil" Hall, Crypt Of The Devil serves as the band's eleventh studio offering and dishes up ten diseased slabs of unfettered death metal barbarity ornamented in Barnes' haunting prose. Surveying the darkest, most abysmal depths of the human condition, the record is alarming in both sound, mind and spirit.Smoke up and get evil, courtesy of High Times, at hightimes.com.

 Vancouver thrashers TITANS EVE announce they will performing dates in BC (dates listed below) in promotion of their third full length 'Chasing The Devil' due out on June 12th. Their first single ‘War Path’ is now streaming here http://www.revolvermag.com/news/titans-eve-premiere-new-song-war-path.html and is an anthemic track that gives listeners a taste of what is yet to come from the rest of their eight song LP. Sitting at track number two on the full length, it carries the weight of an Eric Mosher (AC/DC,Buckcherry) engineered song with the layered mastering from Jeff Waters (Annihilator). The group continues to utilize their background touring with larger acts and embedding aspects of stadium-esque sing along anthems into their newer material. 

 Let There Be GWAR is a comprehensive behind-the-scenes history of the most outrageous shock rock band of all time. GWAR fans will cherish this oversized hardcover book chock full of fascinating first-hand accounts and rare, never-before-seen photographs. The book follows the band from the mid-1980s, known in GWAR lore as the "Dim Time," when the group came together at a derelict dairy building in Richmond, Virginia, through the 1990s and 2000s, when the band spread across the face of the planet like a plague. This book is a record and testament to all that is GWAR, the band whoredefined the meaning of performance in rock music with their outlandish costumes and intense theatrical performances. A GWAR show is more than a rock concert; it is an immersive experience, featuring hilarious storylines, absurd live gore effects, and hundreds of gallons of blood and other fluids sprayed on an eager audience. Let There Be GWAR takes you backstage at these performances, a tour of the GWAR kingdom in photos, band posters, ephemera, production sketches and interviews, that chronicle the band's albums, comics and videos in a blood-stained hardbound tome. Bohabs the world over, will delight in the wretched world of GWAR through the pages of this, the most monstrous book since The Necronomicon.
The hardcover book is over 350 pages, with a lenticular cover, and features 30 years of GWAR and Slave-Pit Inc. the production company behind the band.
The book was compiled by Bob Gorman and Roger Gastman
Gorman began working with Slave Pit and GWAR in 1988. Today he serves as secretary, shop foreman, performer and visual artist for Slave-Pit. He began GWARchiving GWAR and Slave-Pit history in 1997, and this book is the result of that effort.
Gastman, the self-proclaimed "curator of culture" was the brains behind infamous "While You Were Sleeping" and "Swindle" magazines, has packaged over 3 dozen books for small publishers, curated gallery shows MoCA, the Corcoran, and countless other and has produced or worked on several documentaries concerning Graffiti or subculture in general.

Sweden has been a fertile ground for metal of all varieties for multiple decades, and there appears to be no sign that this will change anytime soon. The variety and quality of bands is staggering, and Metal Blade Records is prepared to help add THE GREAT DISCORD to the list of one of Sweden's finest new groups. The band's cornerstone is with the enigmatic vocals of Fia Kempe. Her tone and delivery is immensely emotive and is augmented by a band whose sound is impossible to describe. It's technical, heavy, and yet not so much to overwhelm those not anointed in metal. What's important is that The Great Discord offers a truly unique twist on both metal, and what is to be expected from a female-fronted band.

As the next chapter in Relapse Records’ ongoing 25th anniversary commemoration, heavy music visionaries NEUROSIS will have two of their most revered and long out-of-print titles reissued on super deluxe 180-gram double vinyl this fall. Through Silver in Blood (1996), which Fact Magazine recently deemed the #1 best post-metal album of all time, has not been printed on vinyl in ten years, while Times of Grace (1999) is seeing its first pressing in over fifteen years. Additionally, Grace, the 1999 Tribes of Neurot companion piece to Times of Grace, will also see a deluxe Relapse reissue, its first time ever on vinyl.  
WINDHAND floor us with "Two Urns" - the leading single from their third full-length album, Grief's Infernal Flower.

WINDHAND convey an irrepressible sense of motion even within the slowest of songs. It's a massive sound, heavy, personal and a modern testament to the power of doom and stoner metal's legacies.
