Cannibal Corpse
Cannibal Corpse
Many words come to mind when you hear the name Cannibal Corpse, but one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Returning with their 14th full-length, the monstrous Red Before Black, serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it very clear who sets the standard when it comes to always compelling music that is equally brutal and complex. Moreover, the band have pushed themselves again, ensuring that it stands out from their catalog. “Throughout our career we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. ‘Red Before Black’ continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently,” asserts bassist Alex Webster. “We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums,” adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the most raw sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest and catchiest record.”
Thy Art Is Murder
Australia's incendiary extreme musical export THY ART IS MURDER, return with one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Produced and mixed by Will Putney (SUICIDE SILENCE, EXHUMED, THE ACACIA STRAIN), "Holy War" is the band's second release for Nuclear Blast Entertainment and third full-length album overall.  

"Late last year, we entered the studio in secret to create our follow up to 'Hate', free of expectation and public pressure," explains guitarist Andy Marsh. "What we came out with was a reaction to things going on around the world that crawl under our skin, that make us feel sick to be alive. Musically it is darker, faster and more technical than anything we've done in the past and it hits hard lyrically. We wrote about concerns of ours, real issues, hardships that people are facing around the world today. Of course it wouldn't be a THY ART record if a lot of those affairs weren't rooted in religion somehow, and what better way to sum up the state of all things than by entitling our album 'Holy War'. This is our war on racism, homophobia, child abuse, animal cruelty and all evil born of religious immunity, indoctrination, and ignorance. It is ultimately a push for secularism and humanism. Without it, we will be left in the hands of mad men."

"Holy War" will be available in various formats (digital; limited digi-pak + bonus track; assorted color vinyl; exclusive mail-order picture disc) and unleashed in North America on June 30th, in Europe & Australia on June 26th, and in the U.K. on June 29th.  

Rising from the unhallowed wastes of Western Sydney, THY ART IS MURDER successfully cleaved a trail of blood & mayhem since their inception in 2006. With the acclaimed Infinite Death EP (2008) and  their debut album The Adversary (2010) firmly establishing their name in the global metal music scene, the band has traversed highways & autobahns all around the world, playing 342 tour dates alone in support of their Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut, Hate (2012), which debuted at #35 on the Top 40 Aria chart - the highest chart debut of any Australian extreme metal band.  

Known for their tireless work ethic, THY ART IS MURDER performed at Summer Slaughter 2014 & 2013, headlined their own "Hate Across America" tour in 2013, and supported both EMMURE and BORN OF OSIRIS in 2014, playing throughout the U.S. more times in a two-year period than any other Australian band in any genre of music.
