Perhaps it’s because I don’t listen to NPR as often as I should but I rarely hear that they cover rock or metal. That’s why I think it’s interesting and exciting that the program “All Things Considered” decided to give coverage to the Maryland Deathfest, which is the largest metal festival in North America. The event, which starts today (Thursday) and goes through Sunday evening, will see such acts as Autopsy, Saint Vitus, Godflesh, Morbid Angel, Electric Wizard, and many more. You can hear the NPR program here.
Tickets for the event are still available here. READ MORE
San Francisco Bay Area gore titan, Autopsy, has posted a stream of the brand new track, “The Tomb Within”, on their recently launched mini-site
. The new song is the title track for the band’s forthcoming EP, which is due out on October 5th on Peaceville Records.
Along with the song stream, the new mini-site also features audio samples of each of the EP’s four other gut-wrenching tracks, as well as an in studio video trailer for a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the forthcoming musical bloodbath. ‘The Tomb Within’ EP is the band’s first collection of newly recorded tracks in over a decade.
The highly anticipated, ‘The Tomb Within’, was recorded in mid-July 2010 at Fantasy Studios with Adam Munoz, and unites the original trio of Chris Reifert, Danny Coralles, and Eric Cutler, joined on bass by Joe Trevisano (ex-Abscess). Cover art is supplied by renowned fantasy/horror artist, Matt Cavotta.

After 16 years of delivering punishing, extreme heavy metal, California’s Abscess has decided to call it quits. The band’s sixth and final studio album, Dawn of Inhumanity, was released in March on Peaceville Records.
Abscess drummer/vocalist, Chris Reifert, issued the following statement…
“Greetings, sickos. We need to inform you that Abscess has officially broken up. The reason for this is that Clint Bower has left the band for personal reasons, and out of respect to him and to all who have supported us for these 16 years, we have decided to call it a day. Without Clint Bower, there can be no Abscess, so we won’t even try to cheat anyone with something that is not the real thing. Dawn of Inhumanity has become our final statement, and we feel that it is the perfect way to close the Abscess chapter, since we must do so. Thanks to all of you who were and still are proud to call yourselves Abscess Freaks!”
