INTEGRITY: Den Of Iniquity Reissue And Humanity Is The Devil: 20th Anniversary Remix + Remaster To See CD And Digital Release Via Magic Bullet Records In October

The decadent, wayward psalms of Cleveland’s legendary, end-time metallic hardcore entity, INTEGRITY, continue to be reissued onto the masses, as Magic Bullet Records confirms the impending release of two more titles in October, including an official reissue of the Den Of Iniquity rare/early works collection, as well as a remixed and remastered 20th Anniversary edition of the iconic Humanity Is The Devil album.

INTEGRITY’s groundbreaking Humanity Is The Devil, has long been regarded as the album that completely turned both hardcore and metal on its head. Originally released in 1995, the recording initially sent a mammoth shockwave through the underground, as the band had crafted a proprietary sound wherein metal and hardcore had simply not been fused before. Phrases like “metallic hardcore” and “metalcore” came into prominence within the popular lexicon only after everyone heard what INTEGRITY was doing on this album in particular. Further, singer Dwid Hellion’s foray into much darker, psychological depths lyrically served to raise the bar and open the floodgates for countless others to break away from the trappings of traditional hardcore and metal fodder. To describe Humanity Is The Devil as seminal both in the band’s career and the metallic hardcore genre on the whole would only serve to yield a “yeah, no shit” out of anyone who lived through it at the time.

To celebrate the enduring impact and power of the album, a special remixed and remastered 20th anniversary version of Humanity Is The Devil has been created. Painstakingly mixed by Joel Grind, under guidance from INTEGRITY guitarist Aaron Melnick and vocalist Dwid Hellion, and mastered by Brad Boatwright — both at Audiosiege — the 2015 treatment of this epic recording do the album even more sonic justice and fidelity than was remotely possible in 1995. The result is an even wilder and somehow more visceral experience from start to finish, an album that still stands head and shoulders above anything else. The Humanity Is The Devil: 20th Anniversary Remix + Remaster features an updated treatment of Pushead’s iconic album cover, a new painting from visual artist Josh Bayer, complete lyrics from Hellion, an updated narration from Hellion himself on the album’s final track, and much more.

Den Of Iniquity is a massive, twenty-three song collection of rare tracks spanning “The Melnick Era” (1988-1998) of INTEGRITY. All material is culled from various demos, split 7”s, 7” singles, compilation appearances, and EPs. In short, this is all the hard-to-find non-album stuff of that era, fully remastered with modern vibrancy. Clocking in at a whopping sixty-six minutes, the material represented in this historical documentation includes the Grace Of The Unholy single, Harder They Fall demo, Taste Of Every Sin CD, the split 7” releases with Hatebreed, Mayday, Pale Creation, Kids Of Witney High, Psywarfare and Lockweld, tracks from the Dark Empire Strikes Back and No Exit compilations and live bonus tracks. The physical version of the Den Of Iniquity reissue includes extensive liner notes from guitarist Aaron “A2” Melnick on the recording sessions for each track and exclusive artwork from singer Dwid Hellion.

The Humanity Is The Devil: 20th Anniversary Remix + Remaster and the Den Of Iniquity reissue will see CD and digital release through Magic Bullet Records on October 30th, 2015. Digital preorders for Den Of Iniquity are available HERE and for the Humanity Is The Devil: 20th Anniversary Remix + Remaster HERE. Physical preorders will be posted in the coming days.

THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA “Deathkamp of the Skull + Funeral Embrace” CD | Digital out now

THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA Announces West Coast Tour With Theories; Deathkamp Ov The Skull And Funeral Embrace EPs Out Now On Holy Terror And Magic Bullet

Upon the release of their two most recent EPs – Deathkamp Ov The Skull and Funeral Embrace – which were issued on 7″ vinyl via Holy Terror Records and together on CD via Magic Bullet Records — West Coast tyrants, THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA, have announced a West Coast US Fall tour with Theories.

GEHENNA has intimidated the hardcore community with a vicious and controversial reign of terror since the early 1990s, and has appropriately upgraded their moniker in recent years by re-dubbing themselves THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA, separating themselves from several weaker acts bearing the Gehenna banner. Since the band’s inception, their truly depraved outlook on life and the human race has set them apart from the pack; their hatred for everything around them seething through every moment of every song they’ve ever released, the band having released a plague of material through CrimethInc, Area 51, Holy Terror, Crawlspace, A389 Records, Magic Bullet Records and more since the mid-’90s.

THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA‘s Deathkamp Ov The Skull material annihilates all prior expectations of the band. The title track alone is nearly eight minutes in length and finds the band exploring more of a slow, brooding heaviness before exploding into their familiar brand of evil thrash and unrelenting blasts of murderous musical napalm just past the five-minute mark. “First Blood Part II” keeps the pedal to the metal, not letting up once. From there, “TormentORR” answers the question, “What happens when THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA and Integrity collaborate on a track?,” as Integrity’s singer Dwid Hellion and guitarist Rob Orr leave indelible marks with their contributions. The Funeral Embrace portion is five songs of what the band is more traditionally known for: absolute violent mayhem, typically in doses of less than two minutes or less. “Amphetamine Psychosis” sounds exactly as fucked up and demented as it reads. “Serve The Cult” isn’t so much a call to action as it is a demand punishable by humanity’s annihilation. “Savage II” is pure nihilism put to tape; if you play this in front of small children, you are a bad person. “Into the Grave” and “Funeral Embrace” serve almost as a one-two punch about getting real about death and the fate of all men, women, and living things on the planet. It only ends one way, but Hell be damned if the members of THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA aren’t going out with their hands around more than a few throats on the way out.

Stream Deathkamp Ov The Skull + Funeral Embrace via Noisey at THIS LOCATION.

Both Deathkamp Ov The Skull and Funeral Embrace are now available separately on 7″ vinyl EPs through Holy Terror Records RIGHT HERE and have been collected on one CD which is out now on Magic Bullet Records HERE; digital sales can be placed via Bandcamp HERE and iTunes HERE.

THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA will bring its confrontational live attack to the populations of the Western US this Fall, having declared a full tour of the coast alongside Seattle deathgrind outfit, Theories. Beginning on October 22nd, the tour will storm south for over two weeks, with Landmine Marathon and others set to join several shows. Final TBA dates will be filled in the coming days as the tour is finalized. A large European tour is being planned for 2016 as well.

Interviews with THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA and review copies of Deathkamp Ov The Skull andFuneral Embrace are available worldwide, now in advance of the upcoming tour dates or in-person throughout the tour.

With performances confirmed in more than two-dozen towns as of now, more tour dates are being confirmed, and the itinerary will expand in the coming days.

Along the upcoming routing, WAILIN STORMS will be playing new material from their upcoming maiden full-length recording, One Foot In The Flesh Grave, which showcases the band’s deep, dark, swampy and catchy as hell new material with seven hymns for this ongoing funeral procession of everyday life. One Foot In The Flesh Grave was recorded in four days by Al Jacob at Warrior Sound in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and mixed by Carl Saff, and will see release through Magic Bullet Records this Fall, the album’s final details to be announced in the days ahead, with audio samples to follow.

Originally formed in the unrelenting heat of Corpus Christi, Texas, WAILIN STORMS migrated east and ended up in Durham, North Carolina. Producing a mix of doom-punk and swampy rock with elements of their prior and current surroundings culminate into a unique and volatile brew, overridden with ominous vocal elements reminiscent of bluesy masters like Howlin’ Wolf and Samhain, and musically carved from the Southern American East Coast with emotive nods to Destruction Unit, Clockleaner, Unsane and Pussy Galore. The band’s output is incessantly passionate and harrowing in its entirety; the songs, dark and gritty, with incisive guitar slicing through heavy, churning rhythms. Lead singer Justin Storms howls convincingly amongst the cacophony, belting along as if he’s looking to recruit others to join in with him at any moment.

Recent reports on the band’s output include a write-up by RVA magazine which offers, “North Carolina’s WAILIN STORMS–named after singer Justin Storms, who is certainly wailin’–have a dark, spooky sound that will make you think simultaneously of The Wipers and Samhain, with maybe a little bit of early TSOL or Social Distortion worked in there.” Nine Circles raved about the band’s recently-reissued Shiver EP, boasting, “In a sea of Danzig and Cramps impersonators, WAILIN STORMS manages to stand out as a must-listen… WAILIN STORMS’ straight-ahead style of swamp rock is a perfection of the psychobilly genre.” Rock And Roll Fables’ review of Shiver delivers, “WAILIN STORMSsound like a band possessed which would account for some of the songs sounding downright evil here… Shiver may be comprised of just five songs but those songs will completely own you for the rest of 2015 and beyond.”

Stand by for much more on WAILIN STORMS in the coming days and throughout the rest of the year.
