CARTILAGE Premiere 2nd Single Through Decibel Magazine!

Posted by admin on Apr.28, 2022

Decibel Magazine is hosting the premiere of “I Skin You,” the latest single from San Francisco gore-grind warriors CARTILAGE and their impending second LP, The Deader The Better – Produced under the watchful eyes of Exhumed’s Matt Harvey, The Deader The Better was recorded by Alejandro Corredor (Pounder, ex-Nausea) in January 2020 at Darker Corners Studio in San Luis Obispo. The album all at once features friends, peers, and gore metal grandmasters Ross Sewage (Impaled, Exhumed), Leon del Muerte (Murder Construct, Terrorizer LA), and Tom Draper (Pounder, ex-Carcass) who all make guest appearances, sharpening CARTILAGE’s hemorrhaging stabs of grind for the masses. The Deader The Better is completed with cover art by Matt Slime, and includes a cover of Impetigo’s “Boneyard.” 

With the new premiere of the LP’s “I Skin You,” the CARTILAGE faction collectively offers, “Grit your teeth and hold onto your flesh. ‘I Skin You’ is exactly what the title suggests. You can’t spell ‘degloving’ without ‘loving!’”  Decibel writes in part, “‘I Skin You’ delivers all it promises — 2:45 of blast beats, sideways riffs, and horrific descriptions of human depravity.” Listen to the single HERE!

Creator-Destructor will release The Deader The Better on LP – 200 on Doublemint/Purple Swirl, 200 on Bone w/ Blood Red Splatter, and 100 on Mustard w/ Magenta Splatter – as well as cassette and digital formats on May 13th. Preorders HERE!

A Wilhelm Scream “GIMMETHESHAKES” Video Premiere!

Posted by admin on Mar.23, 2022

We’re thrilled to present the music video for A Wilhelm Scream’s “GIMMETHESHAKES,” the latest single from the Thursday, April 14 release of the band’s first full-length offering in nine years, Lose Your Delusion (pre-order). Another anthemic, fists-up ripper from the band’s forthcoming album.

Guitarist/vocalist Trevor Reilly had the following to share about the video: “Every once in a while, a rock video comes along like a subtle flowing violent whisper, that tests the limits of what is possible in this life, that stretches desperately at the very fabric strands of what it really means to be human … and what is … life? The frailty, the perseverance, the triumph and folly of existence. That makes us weep in reverence at greatness. This is not one of those videos.”

DARKNESS EVERYWHERE “The Seventh Circle” Out Now!

Posted by admin on Mar.14, 2022

The Seventh Circle, the debut from Oakland, California melodic death metal trio, DARKNESS EVERYWHERE is officially out now! Stream the record + order LPs/CDs/Merch via Bandcamp HERE:

DARKNESS EVERYWHERE unites vocalist/guitarist/drummer Ben Murray (Light This City, Wilderness Dream), guitarist Cameron Stucky (Crepuscle), and renowned producer engineer Zack Ohren on bass.

The Seventh Circle was recorded in late 2020 at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, engineered and produced by Zack Ohren, and completed with cover artwork by Samuel Nelson. Additionally, The Seventh Circle features guest vocals from Laura Nichol (Light This City) on “Survival Of The Sun,” by Xavier (Upon Stone) on “The Seventh Circle” and by John Henry (Darkest Hour) on the “The Grand Impact.”

With the record about to be issued into the public, Stucky reveals, “The Seventh Circle is the kind of album that Ben and I have been wanting to hear for the last twenty or more years. We both are very fond of the 1990s and early-2000’s Scandinavian melo-death scene, and before we ever sat down to write songs there was a clear vision to recreate the magic of that era as best as we could. Riffs, harmonies, and straight-to-the-point song structures are the hallmarks of this record, and I can only hope that fans of the genre will be satisfied.”
