MORTIIS/PIG Tean Up for Swine & Punishment UK Tour:

MORTIIS
Ahead of the release of the forthcoming ‘The Great Corrupter’ remix album in late April, the band will be embarking on a 9 date strong UK co-headline run this March with PIG aka industrial pioneer Raymond Watts. The tour kicks off at Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms on 10th March and finishes at London’s legendary Garage venue on 18th March.

 

The band comments: “We always have a great time in the UK, so being able to go out on tour there again, and with old heroes PIG no less, makes it even more exciting! What makes this tour even more special, to me personally anyway, is the fact that we just remixed each other. PIG are on our upcoming remix album “The Great Corrupter” so it´s a double whammy!”

 

MORTIIS/PIG ‘Swine & Punishment’ UK TOUR:

10 March Nottingham – Rescue Rooms
11 March Glasgow – Ivory Blacks
12 March Newcastle – Think Tank
13 March York – Fibbers
14 March Sheffield – Plug
15 March Manchester – Ruby Lounge
16 March Bristol – Fleece
17 March Norwich – Epic Studios
18 March London – Garage

OSLO – On the heels of last year’s long-awaited The Great Deceiver album, Mortiis will issue The Great Corrupter on April 21st.

 

The Great Corrupter begins with tracks from the previous album, deconstructed and masterfully “corrupted” by Chris Vrenna, Rhys Fulber, Die Krupps, John Fryer, GODFLESH, Merzbow, Apoptygma Berzerk, In Slaughter Natives, Raison D´Etre, Je$us Loves Amerika, PIG, and many more. The record will also contain unreleased material from the original recording sessions.

“The tracks on this album are very broad,” said Mortiis. “They range from retro sounding, heavy industrial to very deep ambient type music to electronic/industrial club type shuff,” Mortiis said.

The Great Corrupter will be available in CD and vinyl formats, each with its own unique, collectible packaging. It will also be available digitally.

True to tradition, Mortiis will release a Free download single on January 23rd, a ferocious remix by German industrial legends Die Krupps, as a taste of things to come. The single will also feature a non-album remix by club heroes Leæther Strip.
The download single activates on January 23rd on the band´s Bandcamp site.

DAVID VINCENT To Release Debut Outlaw Country Single, ‘Drinkin’ With The Devil’

Former MORBID ANGEL frontman David Vincent will release his debut outlaw country single, “Drinkin’ With The Devil”, next month on seven-inch vinyl via Chicken Ranch Records. The song, which features a guest appearance by guitar legend Danny B. Harvey (HEADCAT, WANDA JACKSON, NANCY SINATRA), was recorded with legendary producer Gene “Machine” Freeman at The Machine Shop in Austin, Texas.

 

PREORDER! Limited edition color or black vinyl. Shipping February 2017:
store.chickenranchrecords.com/product/david-vincent-drinkin-with-the-devil-7

 

As the legendary voice of the genre-defining extreme metal purveyors MORBID ANGEL, Vincent’s unapologetic rebel approach has been a force in the music world since the mid 1980s. Following his unexpected departure from the band in 2015 and subsequent relocation to the Lone Star State of Texas, his musical direction has also taken a big step “out of the box.” Inspired by the immersion into his new Hill Country surroundings and the Lone Star culture, he began composing music in a dirty, organic Texas country outlaw style, perhaps reminiscent of the original country outlaw performers in the 1970s.

 

Vincent spoke to SkullsNBones.com last year about how his country project came about. “Just like most musicians, I listen to and am inspired by all types of music,” he explained. “When I moved to Texas, I found myself immersed in this scene, kept an open mind to it all, and found new inspiration by some of the artists around here. I began writing songs, man; [it’s] as simple as that. I know it’s not what many people would expect from my career in metal, but it’s still me, you know. I’m still as open as I’ve ever been, and I’m still as passionate with this material as I was with anything else I’ve ever done before…. It’s my take on things, and it’s different than what you’ll hear from most of the other acts in this genre.”

 

Vincent added that he expected a large portion of the MORBID ANGEL fans to be resistant to his new musical output. “There’s a lot of people who see this ‘metal’ guy trying this new thing and may not give it a shot, but the ones I’ve shared it with have been really impressed,” he said. “A lot asked why I didn’t do this sooner, and it’s simple; people find their way to things when they find their way to things. It doesn’t mean that I’ll never play metal again, by any means, but this is where my heart is at right now, so I want to put out the best material I can, and have fun with it. We have a lot of cool stuff coming up that may surprise some people, but it’s all about writing the best songs, and having fun. That’s where I’m at right now, and I’m pretty damn happy.”

 

As previously reported, Vincent has joined forces with ex-MORBID ANGEL drummer Tim Yeung and guitarists Bill Hudson (CIRCLE II CIRCLE, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA) and Ira Black (METAL CHURCH, LIZZY BORDEN) to perform classic MORBID ANGEL songs under the I AM MORBID banner.

 

The new band, which will play material from MORBID ANGEL’s “Altars Of Madness” (1989), “Blessed Are The Sick” (1991), “Covenant” (1993) and “Domination” (1995) albums, has scheduled two shows in Brazil this spring: March 24 in Belo Horizonte and March 25 in São Paulo. Additional dates will be announced soon.

New JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES Album, Season Of The Witch, out March 3, 2017 / US Tour Kicks off March 3 in Fife, WA

Awarded 4th Best Guitarist and 3rd Best Rock Video in 6th Annual Loudwire Music Awards

World-renowned guitarist JOHN 5 recently announced the release of his upcoming eighth full-length solo album, entitled Season Of The Witch. The fully-instrumental album, which features his band The Creatures (bassist Ian Ross and drummer Rodger Carter), is set to hit stores on March 3, 2017. The album features experimentation with various genres – including western swing, Spanish flamenco, heavy metal and more – thoroughly showcasing JOHN 5’s diverse virtuosic abilities. Pre-orders will become available via iTunes in early February.

JOHN 5 took a different approach with the release of Season Of The Witch, choosing to share his new music with fans throughout 2016 by releasing several tracks individually in the form of various music videos. Tracks/videos released include the fast-paced “Black Grass Plague”, downtempo, introspective “Behind The Nut Love”, hard rocking “Now Fear This”, jazz fusion marathon “Here’s To The Crazy Ones” (featuring a bit of “monkeying around”), heavy metal Claymation shredfest “Making Monsters”, and last but not least, the whiskey-soaked “Hell Haw”. The videos have garnered nearly a million views, collectively.

“Since music is so visual nowadays, I thought these videos would be the best way to get my music out there, and it seems to have worked – now everybody knows the songs on the record,” states JOHN 5. “I put so much work into this record with the videos, the artwork, the songwriting and the playing – out of my catalog, this is by far my favorite solo record.”

Season Of The Witch track listing:

1) Book of Spells
2) Black Grass Plague
3) Guitars, Tits and Monsters
4) Now Fear This
5) Behind the Nut Love
6) Making Monsters
7) Dr. Evil’s Spook Show
8) Here’s To The Crazy Ones
9) The Macabre
10) Triple D
11) Hell Haw
12) Ode to Jasper
13) Season Of The Witch

Kicking off the same day as the album release, JOHN 5 and The Creatures will embark on an 18-date US tour, beginning in Fife, WA. See below for all currently confirmed tour dates.

His upcoming release, Season Of The Witch, follows his previous solo work, Careful With That Axe, which debuted on the Billboard Heatseekers chart upon release in 2014.
