Bloody-Disgusting is excited to bring you exclusive in-studio footage of Death Valley High recording their new album Positive Euth, which comes out June 25th via minus HEAD Records. In the video, vocalist Reyka Osburn states that 15 songs will be recorded, some for the full length album and some for an EP entitled Survival Program.
Osburn comments, “‘Positive Euth’ is the rebirth or the reawakening. It’s all about shedding dead layers and limbs, and re-animating. We’ve evolved in the three most important areas as musicians, songwriters, and drinkers. We survived doomsday to be positively undead.”
Osburn continues, “The sound is heavy and built on pace. It’s chewed-up, suspenseful, and anxious. This album pulls together ideas from the first and second records, but it clearly defines us. The ideology of this album goes to extremes of what we’ve tried to achieve before. It’s about leaving you white-knuckled.”
Positive Euth was engineered by Jesse Hart Nichols (The Stooges, Ty Segal), mixed by Eric Stenman (Thrice, Deftones), and mastered by Brian Gardener (Queens of the Stone Age, Dr. Dre).

Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails, How To Destroy Angels) has taken to his Facebook page to announce that he is working on a project that involves Dr. Dre, Jimmy Iovine, Luke Wood, who are all behind the Beats By Dre. While no details were given regarding the project or the style of music, Reznor states that this project is something out of normal element and that we will begin to see this work emerge in 2013.
Reznor’s official statement reads, “Some of you may have read that I have begun working with Beats By Dre. For the past year I have indeed been involved with Dre, Jimmy Iovine, Luke Wood, and the rest of the team on a number of very interesting projects that will start to emerge next year. I have been wanting to experiment and focus my energy and creativity in some different directions, and Beats has afforded me that very opportunity. The process has been challenging and fascinating and as much as I’d like to tell you about the things we’ve dreamed up… I just can’t. Not yet…(I can tell you it’s probably not what you’re expecting!)”

Music mogul Dr. Dre is heating up horror-thriller Thaw, tapping Vik Weet to script the film for his Crucial Films banner, says Variety.
“The story will center on an ancient evil that emerges from the rapidly melting ice in the Yukon.”
Dre is producing the project with Crucial Films partner Daniel Schnider, who originated the idea.
Weet penned the script for another untitled thriller about an investigation into the 1959 Dyatlov Pass incident, in which nine experienced hikers were found dead in Russia’s Ural Mountains. Renny Harlin is directing that film.
Dre launched Crucial Films in 2007 with a first-look deal at New Line.
Dre’s produced albums have sold more than 80 million worldwide and he’s been involved with artists such as Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, Eve and the Game after beginning his career in 1986 as founding member of the rap group N.W.A. He’s the CEO of Aftermath Records. READ MORE
