Coming off their amazing 2011 release Agony, Fleshgod Apocalypse are all geared up to apparently blow your mind apart with some new stuff.
The Iron Will Tour has come off its Canadian leg to violently penetrate America with dose after dose of death metal. I drove up to St. Paul in the rain and then in circles downtown looking for a place to park, but I persevered, and made it to Station 4 in time to catch opening act Rose Funeral.
I wasn’t sure how this lone deathcore band would fit on a tour of death metal heavyweights. But when the band launched into their set, they proved themselves with a fury. Vocalist Ryan Gardner made several obscene stroking gestures which the crowd seemed to appreciate. “You know all the controversy, breakdowns versus solos,” he said. “Fuck all that. We’re here to play music. Even for zero dollars, we’re happy to be here and play you motherfuckers.”
Arsis have been hard at work recording the follow up to their 2010 release Starve For The Devil. Metal Injection first broke the news back in June with some quick quotes from founding member and current guitarist and vocalist James Malone. James gave us some insight to how the album was coming along and also mentioned that the band had also started to work on the album artwork and title for the upcoming release. Well wait no more, as we now have confirmation as to the name of the upcoming album as well as a preview of the artwork!
Montreal death metal masters Kataklysm have been holed up in a studio recently working on a new record, which means the band hasn't done much touring this year. That all changes in August, when the band will hit the road as part of the Iron Will tour. They are taking out some seriously heavy openers in Origin, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Vital Remains and Rose Funeral. Man, going on after Vital, Fleshgod AND Origin? Kataklysm are not making it easy for themselves. Here are the announced dates: (more…)

The Summer touring schedule is heating up. Just announced is the lineup for this year's Summer Slaughter festival. The Black Dahlia Murder, who headlined the second iteration of the fest a few years ago, will return to headline once again, and will no doubt be supporting a new record. Providing direct support will be Whitechapel, who just a few years ago were the opening back on the tour. Rounding out the support will be Darkest Hour, Six Feet Under, Dying Fetus, As Blood Runs Black, Oceano, Fleshgod Apocalypse and a "special halftime show" by Powerglove. The promoters of the tour are also asking the fans to vote for the opening band on the tour. Full tour dates are expected to be announced on 4/20.

When I first saw the lineup for the 2010 DECIBEL DEFIANCE TOUR, I did the following in order:
1. Shit my pants
2. Bought tickets
3. Changed said pants
The prospect of having FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, DECREPIT BIRTH and SUFFOCATION on the same bill gave me a terrified jolt up my spine. This would by far be the heaviest effing show I would ever see. And with THE FACELESS and THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD sharing the spotlight, I knew the show would attract a very interesting crowd. I could already see it; people leaving on stretchers, pools of blood on the mosh pit floor, maybe even a few broken bones for good measure. In any case, I knew the show would not disappoint… and I was about half right. (more…)
SUFFOCATION announce the sickest death metal tour of the fall with THE FACELESS, DECREPIT BIRTH, THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE
Holy shit! Suffocation just let the cat out of the bag that they will be headlining a headcrushing Fall package. Coming along for the ride will be The Faceless, Decrepit Birth, Through The Eyes of The Dead and Fleshgod Apocalypse. This tour is like Summer Slaughter's younger brother. While the official title of the tour is "The Decibel Defiance Tour 2010", I'm going to declare this the Autumn Annihilation tour! Fuck yea! No dates have been announced yet, but as soon as we hear something, you'll know about it!
