Right on the heels of Time Waits for No Slave, their umpteenth offering of face-melting grindcore, England's extreme metal pioneers NAPALM DEATH are marauding through North America with a none-too-shabby supporting cast. KATAKLSYM, TOXIC HOLOCAUST, TRAP THEM and ABIGAIL WILLIAMS are sure to fulfill all your death/thrash/grind metal needs, while Napalm Death promise to be as nice as possible about handing you your ass. New England Metal & Hardcore Fest is included in the tour, and Maryland Death Fest will also feature some of the same bands in May. Dates are as follows: (more…)
For once, a series has made it to the seventh installment without sucking. Maryland Death Fest has announced this year's daily lineups, with over 50 bands in three days. Any self-respecting headbanger better start calling up those long-lost relatives in the Baltimore area and asking for a place to crash from May 22-24.
MAYHEM, CEPHALIC CARNAGE, CATTLE DECAPITATION, NAPALM DEATH, ATHEIST, PIG DESTROYER, THE RED CHORD, TRAP THEM, MISERY INDEX and SIGH are just some of the big names appearing, plus a shit-ton of potentially awesome bands from all over the metal scale. Tickets are already on sale, and the complete lineup (plus footage of DYING FETUS from last year's fest) are after the jump for your viewing pleasure. (more…)
I love the smell of Napalm Death in the morning. That's why you should start your day by streaming their face-melting new song, "Diktat" (hmmm…,) right here. Of course, you could also check out footage of your favorite grindcore Englishmen peforming "Diktat" and another new song, "On the Brink of Extinction," in the video below. "Diktat" and "On the Brink of Extinction" are both on ND's 13th album, Time Waits for No Slave, which hits the U.S. on February 10. Brace yourself.
