Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce the addition of experimental death metal band Fleshwrought to its family. Fleshwrought features Navene Koperweis (former drummer of Bay area grind band Animosity, currently in Animals As Leaders) and Jonny Davy (vocalist of Arizona’s Job for a Cowboy); Navene performing all instruments on the band’s debut album Dementia/Dyslexia with Jonny Davy handling lyrics and vocals.
“I’m truly amazed that a small project I started in my bedroom at my mom’s house has become something worthy of a Metal Blade release. What more could I ask for? I couldn’t be more proud and honored!” Navene Koperweis
“This record has been complete for an extremely long time. Navene and myself are extremely pumped to finally have the beast released.” Jonny Davy
Dementia/Dyslexia was finished by June 2009 and was recorded at Navene’s studio, Death Midi Soundlab, in San Francisco. Navene played all of the instruments, did all the tracking, mixing, and editing, with mastering handled by Dustin Miller at Audio Aggregate Recordings in Des Moines Iowa. In terms of what Fleshwrought hopes people will take away from listening to Dementia/Dyslexia, Navene personally hopes it is inspiration and a connection with the music, much in the way he has felt about those who have inspired him through his journey as a musician and lover of music.

Quantum Catastrophe was recorded at Castle Ultimate Studios in Oakland, CA with Zach Ohren (Suffocation, Decrepit Birth, All Shall Perish), who handled engineering mastering and produced the album along with the band. Quantum Catastrophe again features cover art by Par Olofsson, with over the top cover artwork that perfectly complements the nearly unbelievable musicianship present on the record.
As the oversaturated deathcore scene becomes even more diluted with each passing day a new group of likeminded individuals are taking things in a new direction by pushing the boundaries of precision, speed and technicality to inhuman levels. This group is better known as the San Diego based quintet, Burning The Masses, whose stunning debut offering, ‘Mind Control’, could be best described as a sledgehammer to the face.
Burning The Masses will release their much anticipated new album, ‘Offspring of Time’, on July 20th through Mediaskare Records. This album blends the best elements of Between The Buried And Me, Cannibal Corpse and Necrophagist, so head over now to www.myspace.com/burningthemasses
to check out the scathing new track “Resonance of The Foul” and access many specially priced pre-order package deals, which are limited, so be sure to get your orders in now.
The group will also be spending the spring touring throughout North America with And Hell Followed With, Knights of The Abyss and Those Who Lie Beneath. Their complete tour routing can be found on their MySpace page.
