Bloody-Disgusting has gotten a video teaser that announces the formation of a new band called Pretty In Purgatory. The video features footage and music from their upcoming EP’s lead track “Voices”, which is apparently influenced by the 2008 Pascal Laugier-directed French horror film Martyrs.
Guitarist/producer Nikk Skum states, “The age of the ‘album’, the era of ‘business models’, the societal expectation of ‘grow up, go to school, find a job and get married and have kids’, is a thing of the past. This is a debt based slave system of deception and social control. People are waking up from the ‘Matrix’, and are very very pissed off.”
Micaela Purgatory, vocalist, adds, “When you have been stripped of everything, it’s then you can find the inner beauty that has been masked by the ugliness of the world. For the readers on this site who have seen the movie ‘Martyrs’, that is what I’m talking about.”

Industrial metal legends Ministry are gearing up to release their 13th studio album From Beer To Eternity, which will hit shelves on September 6th. Fans may remember that frontman Al Jourgensen previously stated that there would not be another Ministry record. However, Jourgensen recently said, “I had no choice.”
The 11-track album was recorded last December at Jourgensen’s 13th Planet in El Paso, Texas. Jourgensen produced the album, composed the music, and wrote the lyrics for each track. The sessions included drummer Aaron Rossi, bassist Tony Campos (Static-X), guitarist Sin Quirin, and guitarist Mike Scaccia, who died of a heart failure three days after the 18 tracks were roughly finished. Scaccia was performing with his band Rigor Mortis in Dallas, Texas.
Head on below for more information about the album as well as a video courtesy of Noisecreep that highlights the Seven Deadly Sins theme that will grace the cover art and promotional materials (be warned, the video is NSFW due to nudity). READ MORE
Update: There is a statement from Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen below.
It is with a sad heart that we report Ministry/Rigor Mortis/The Revolting Cocks guitarist Mike Scaccia has passed away. He was 47 years old. Below is a picture of Mike as well as a pretty comprehensive interview.
Reports are saying that Mike suffered a seizure and collapsed on stage during a Rigor Mortis performance that was celebrating singer Bruce Corbitt’s 50th birthday. He was rushed to the hospital where he passed away.
Corbitt posted on Facebook, “My brother is gone! The only reason I am who I am is because of this man. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t even be in a band. RIP Mike – the greatest guitar player I ever knew. I’m proud to say that I was always Mike Scaccia’s biggest fan, and always will be.”
R.I.P. Mike. Your music changed the landscape of music and you will be missed. READ MORE
Few bands today embrace their own individualism to ultimately craft something truly unique and genre defying regardless of the sales potential. Enter the Chicago-based Nachtmystium who embrace the true spirit of individuality and intolerance forming solely as an outlet to express the dark musical visions and summonings of those involved.
This vicious, uncompromising group’s (led by mastermind Blake Judd) much anticipated new full-length offering, Addicts: Black Meddle Pt. II, is set for a June 8th release. The disc was recorded once again with Sanford Parker (Minsk) at Volume Studios. They have enlisted the talents of Wrest (Leviathan, Lurker of Chalice, Twilight) to record all drum tracks as well as Will Lindsay (Wolves in the Throne Room, Middian) on bass for this new album, which was hailed by Decibel Magazine as “One of the 25 most anticipated albums of 2010.”
