Autopsy announce release date, track list and cover art for their upcoming release 'The Headless Ritual'
American Death Metal lords Autopsy are planning to unleash hell on 24th June (2nd July US) marks with their sixth studio opus of horror and all-out madness, titled ‘The Headless Ritual’, via Peaceville Records. Featuring the returning quartet of Chris Reifert, Eric Cutler, Danny Coralles, and Joe Trevisano, ‘The Headless Ritual’ is a relentless monster of violent and brutal death metal mastery delivered in the unmistakable Autopsy style of chaotic riffing, insane solos and doom-filled interludes, all served with the band’s unhinged brand of vocal sickness. The album was recorded and mixed April 2013 at Fantasy Studios in California with Adam Munoz, and features cover artwork by renowned artist Joe Petagno (Motörhead, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin).
As the band warns:
“Expect nothing less than the monstrous brutality that Autopsy has been known to offer. Laurels will not be rested upon, trends will not be followed and mercy will not be shown. Mark your calendars for June and pick out a coffin to lie down and die in. Darkness and death await.....”

The Black Dahlia Murder's sixth full-length album, "Everblack", will be released worldwide in June 2013. The album artwork for "Everblack" was painted by renowned artist Nick Keller, recording was completed at Audiohammer Studios (lead guitars and vocals), Rustbelt Studios (drums), and Regal Fecal (guitar and bass), mixing was handled by Jason Suecof and Ryan Williams and mastering was completed by Alan Douches at West Westside.
Trevor Strnad's horror-inspired lyrics persist on "Everblack", beginning with 'In Hell is Where She Waits for Me', a reference to the murder from which the band took for their moniker.
Vocalist Trevor Strnad elaborates on the lyrical concepts: "The opening track is the first actual song we've done about the Black Dahlia. This one is for the fans, they've been asking for this to happen for a long time. The story takes place at the Elizabeth Short's rain drenched funeral, where her killer in attendance, just one of the many macabre tales woven into the fabric of Everblack. Subterranean flesh-farming vampires, vine rape, Jeffery Dahmer, amputation, it's all here! With this sixth slab of sickness I tried my best to honor the band's legacy and write lyrics that will keep the legions of horror fiends perspiring with fear."
The debut single, 'Into the Everblack', is streaming now on metalblade.com/bdm.
Also available at metalblade.com/bdm are a variety of limited edition pre-order bundles. Fans can grab 'Everblack' on a triple gatefold double LP with purple / white marbled vinyl, along with "crime scene bundles." An evidence pack, which includes toe tags, deceased band member photos, spent shotgun shells, and more can be viewed now. These bundles are extremely limited and expected to sell out quickly.
'Everblack' will be released on June 10th in the UK.

American Sludge Metal Kylesa have announced the title and release date of their forthcoming album. Considered to be one of the most anticipated hard rock releases of 2013 and the follow-up to their critically-acclaimed album "Spiral Shadow", 'Ultraviolet' will hit the stores on May 24th (May 28th in North America).
For fans a taster of whats to come is in stock as "Unspoken", one of the new songs from the eleven-track album is now available for those who subscribe to the Season of Mist newsletter. Of course, if you have already subscribed to the newsletter, you can still get the MP3. All you have to do is enter your email address in the widget you will find on the respective websites of Season of Mist partners Terrorizer (UK), Metal.de (Germany), and Inferno (Finland).
“Whereas ‘Spiral Shadow’ was a warm album suggesting concepts of hope, ‘Ultraviolet’ is a bit colder and darker”, explains songwriter / guitar player Laura Pleasants. “All of our studio albums have their own unique identity and we've always been a band who strives for something different than what current fads suggest. With ‘Ultraviolet’, we took a step inward and wrote music that we felt we had to write; this album centers around the multiple themes of loss and you can feel it in the music. Everyone goes through it during their lifetime and this record reflects that experience”.
'Ultraviolet' was recorded at The Jam Room in Columbia, South Carolina with Kylesa's guitar player / songwriter and sought-after producer, Phillip Cope (Baroness, Black Tusk) once again overseeing production.
Kylesa will return to the road in May with more details forthcoming.
Ephrata, PA, metal quintet Texas In July yesterday premiered their new music video for "Bed of Nails" - off of their recently released self-titled album. The video can be viewed on Youtube and on TexasInJuly.com.
The music video was co-directed by Kevin Cross and Brad Golowin of Thunder Down Country (Miss May I, Memphis May Fire, Asking Alexandria) and filmed in Ohio.
"There is a very distinct guitar part in this song, triggered by the infamous whammy pedal," states lyricist / bassist Ben Witkowski of "Bed of Nails" - a clear stand-out track on the album - and one of the band's most impressive songs to date. "I remember when Christian [Royer] wrote this part in studio and it's like our world as a band spun around. One different thing after another on this record, and this song was the icing on the cake." He continues, "We're very excited for "Bed of Nails" to be our first music video off of the self-titled record. We had a ton of fun creating this song and watching it grow, can't wait for everyone to see this!"
Last week, Texas In July partnered with AltPress.com for the exclusive premiere of a behind-the-scenes look at the filming process for the music video. The video, filmed by Jandy Zapata, can be seen HERE.
