The debut LP by Durham, North Carolina-based doom punk outfit, WAILIN STORMS, titled One Foot In The Flesh Grave, is now playing exclusively at Revolver Magazine as the record is prepared for its release this week via Magic Bullet Records.

Led by ominous, blues-driven vocals reminiscent of Samhain and early Danzig, brooding quartet, WAILIN STORMS merges doom punk and harrowing rock into something fans of TSOL, Social Distortion, Murder City Devils, Laughing Hyenas, Hot Water Music, Pussy Galore and Clockcleaner alike will find themselves immersed in. Recorded and mixed at Warrior Sound, by Al Jacob and mastered by Carl Saff, One Foot In The Flesh Grave is completed with artwork by Bruno Guerreiro of Decibel Magazine.

Invisible Oranges reported, “While there’s some metal and hardcore in the WAILIN STORMSsound, it mostly simmers. There’s strength in simmering: one cooks a lobster by slowly raising the heat… Just when it reaches a fever-pitch, it ends. WAILIN STORMS don’t overstay their welcome. The way vocalist Justin Storms caws over the din reminds me of the two most recent Wovenhand records.” American Aftermath’s 8/10 review called the album, “a mighty doom punk opus that will be forever stuck in the minds of all who listen to it, continuing, “This 33-minute effort features southern fried sludge colliding head on with doomed blues and hazy-eyed punk nuances. It is a sound likened to Samhain’s deathrock if it were hijacked by The Murder City Devils and more recent Wovenhand material…. a catchy, doomed opus that serves as the essential first step to WAILIN STORMS eventual greatness.” Cvlt Nation posted, “One Foot In The Flesh Grave sounds like a morbid plate of hot grits covered in zombie blood. This band knows how to write songs that channel the gothic past of the south while still keeping the ghost of Robert Johnson happy. Have a dark fucking open mind – let the WAILIN STORMS blow right in, and you will not be disappointed!”

Revolver Magazine is now exclusively streaming all of WAILIN STORMS’ One Foot In The Flesh Grave at THIS LOCATION.

Magic Bullet Records will release One Foot In The Flesh Grave on all digital platforms and both red and clear vinyl pressings on November 20th. Vinyl preorders are available HERE and digital preorders are available HERE.

Stand by for more on WAILING STORMS as the band plots new live dates and continues to write new follow-up material to their debut LP in order to record early in 2016.

WAILIN STORMS sorrowfully serenades the public with a harrowing new single from their Magic Bullet Records-bound One Foot In The Flesh Grave debut LP with an exclusive Invisible Oranges stream of “Ribcage Fireplace.”

The Invisible Oranges write-up of the new track with the premiere offers, “’Ribcage Fireplace,’ like most of the other songs on the band’s upcoming debut One Foot In The Flesh Grave is a slow burner, all mounting percussion and overdriven blues chords. Just when it reaches a fever-pitch, it ends. WAILIN STORMS don’t overstay their welcome. The way vocalist Justin Storms caws over the din reminds me of the two most recent Wovenhand records.”

Nov 02 2015

Integ full band live b

Fully remastered and reissued, the album sees rebirth via Magic Bullet Records directly alongside the Humanity Is The Devil: 20th Anniversary Remix + Remaster this Friday, October 30th.

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.

INTEGRITY: 20th Anniversary Edition Of Humanity Is The Devil Unleashed At No Clean Singing; CD Out This Week

Oct 28 2015

Memorializing one of the most iconic releases of the groundbreaking 1990s metallic hardcore revolution, Magic Bullet Records prepares to release the Humanity Is The Devil: 20th Anniversary Remix + Remaster from end-time prophets, INTEGRITY, later this week, and the entire record is now writhing its way into the airwaves early through an exclusive at No Clean Singing.

To celebrate the enduring impact of the album, the 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.

INTEGRITY‘s Humanity Is The Devil: 20th Anniversary Remix + Remaster today sees a special early premiere through No Clean Singing, the webzine offering, “Hellion’s voice is a pure red fury… Aaron Melnick’s riffs and leads range from pneumatic blunt force trauma to slow, soulful, and bluesy metal to adrenaline-surging speedfests, and the melodies that often ooze from the music are downright dark, doomed, and poisonous.” The review continues, “And this is a multi-faceted and even experimental album. No two tracks are alike. It’s as if the band were spreading their wings, seeing how far they could take themselves from where they started without completely breaking the tether. They found new territories for sure. Though the trails they blazed have been explored by many others since the original release, Humanity… remains to this day a fascinating and potent piece of art, well-deserving of this updated anniversary release.”

Hear INTEGRITY’s re-envisioned Humanity Is The Devil at No Clean Singing RIGHT HERE.

The Humanity Is The Devil: 20th Anniversary Remix + Remaster sees CD and digital release through Magic Bullet Records this Friday, October 30th, 2015. Digital preorders are available HERE and physical orders will be made available HERE. A reissue of the band’s Den Of Iniquityrare tracks collection will also be released the same day.

INTEGRITY’s landmark Humanity Is The Devil has long been regarded as the album that completely turned both hardcore and metal on its head. 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.

On the heels of a debut split 7” with Los Angeles, CA’s VORS (released earlier in the year), Free Inside is the first proper 7” EP from Richmond, VA’s BLEACH EVERYTHING. The band’s membership pedigree is highlighted by a present and past that includes IRON REAGAN, MAMMOTH GRINDER, JESUIT, SUPPRESSION, and CORN ON MACABRE amongst countless others. As one could surmise, BLEACH EVERYTHING specializes in all things short, fast, loud, violent, and often absurd.

Rooted deeply in the DIY punk ethos that gave each member a roadmap toward individual and collective musical longevity deep into adult life, all skills of the trade are on display here. Musically, the band charges further forward on the hellbent path established on the VORS split; absolutely relentless in its urgency, unrepentant in its sonic heft, and rife with entropic freneticism. Thematically, the band calls for self-empowerment (title track), self-reliance (“Sons of Hecate”), and space terror (“Facehugger”)…

…all within the span of five minutes.

Now in the webstore: THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA “Deathkamp ov the Skull + Funeral Embrace” CD | Digital

Oct 28 2015

gehennadeathcd- Compact disc compiling the band’s most recent 7″s
- 8 tracks in total
- Uncoated ecopak package with poster/lyric insert
- To stream and/or download the album in full, please go here.

• To order the CD online worldwide, please visit the Magic Bullet Webstore.
• To support this release digitally via iTunes, please visit the iTunes store.
• To support this release via Bandcamp, please visit our Bandcamp page.

Deathkamp ov the Skull + Funeral Embrace combines THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA’s two most recent 7” releases onto convenient CD and digital formats.

The first three tracks on the disc comprise Deathkamp ov the Skull, with the title track itself annihilating all prior expectations of the band. The song 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 INTEGRITYsinger Dwid Hellion and guitarist Rob Orr leave indelible marks with their contributions.

The Funeral Embrace portion is five songs of what THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA is more traditionally known for: absolute violent mayhem, typically in doses of under two minutes at a time. “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.

Track List:

01. Deathkamp ov the Skull
02. First Blood Part II
03. TormentORR
04. Amphetamine Psychosis
05. Serve the Cult
06. Savage II
07. Into the Grave
08. Funeral Embrace

Alert the media: Florida Man has finally started a band as reckless and completely fucked as the headlines we’ve all come to know, love, and fear.

MEATWOUND is a band comprised of former members of Combatwoundedveteran, The Holy Mountain, Headless Dogs, Primate Research, and more. Impossibly dangerous and hardcore as shit, a thundering concoction of 1990s influences drive the MEATWOUND sound; a magnetic gutter wherein the pentatonic, industrialized elements of Fudge Tunnel and Godflesh meet a sordid death metal edge meshing Sepultura and Exit-13, all while a throbbing Big Black-style of hardcore punk gets a scuzzy sci-fi kick in the nuts that harkens The Locust. It’s beyond aggressive, it’s as unruly as a pet store on fire, and, like Warchild from “Point Break,” it’s here to fuck you up.

Addio, MEATWOUND‘s debut, was recorded with Dan Byer at Rock Garden Recording in St. Petersburg, Florida, mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound, and features the twisted artwork of Chris Norris, aka Steak Mtn.

THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA: Negative Hardcore Outfit Begins Pillaging The West Coast With Theories Today

Oct 23 2015

gehenna_7664 [photo by Fred Pessaro][photo by Fred Pessaro]

“The man who may or may not have stabbed someone over a box of chicken returns…” – Noisey

West Coast faction, THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA, will rein its malicious brew of contemptuous, nihilistic hardcore down upon fifteen cities in the great western realms of America’s killing fields. The invasion begins this evening in Seattle, home to megagrinders, Theories, and tourmates to the GEHENNA horde for the entire routing. Shows with The Body, Catharsis, Thou, Full Of Hell, Landmine Marathon and more along the way are also on the agenda.

Having intimidated the hardcore community with a vicious and controversial reign of terror since the early 1990s, the sect appropriately redubbed itself to THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA in recent years barring them from other acts bearing the moniker. 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, A389 Records, Area 51, Crawlspace and other labels since the mid-1990s. The outfit’s most recent auditory trauma comes through two EPs — Deathkamp Ov The Skull andFuneral Embrace — which were issued on 7” vinyl via Holy Terror Records and together on CD via Magic Bullet Records.

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

THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA w/ Theories:
10/22/2015 Black Lodge – Seattle, WA w/ Landmine Marathon
10/23/2015 Panic Room – Portland, OR w/ Landmine Marathon
10/24/2015 Missing Time Records – Eugene, OR
10/25/2015 Fruitdale Grange – Grants Pass, OR
10/26/2015 Sheas Tavern – Reno, NV
10/27/2015 The Colony – Sacramento, CA w/ The Body, Thou
10/28/2015 The Rock Shop – San Jose, CA
10/29/2015 Che Cafe – San Diego, CA
10/30/2015 Blacklight District – Los Angeles, CA
10/31/2015 Los Globos – Los Angeles, CA (matinee) w/ Catharsis, The Body, Thou, Full Of Hell, Heat Dust
11/01/2015 The Doll Hut – Ventura, CA (matinee show)
11/01/2015 Ventura Library – Ventura, CA
11/02/2015 The Rebel Lounge – Phoenix, AZ
11/03/2015 Sandhill House – Las Vegas, NV
11/04/2015 The Chinatown Youth Center – Fresno, CA
11/05/2015 The Golden Bull – Oakland, CA w/ Wake

Additional tour dates including a large European invasion in 2016 and more is being devised for THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA; stand by for further broadcasts.

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.

This is just the case with WAILIN STORMS, whose soon to be released album One Foot In The Flesh Grave sounds like a morbid plate of hot grits covered in zombie blood.

Led by ominous, blues-driven vocals reminiscent of Samhain and early Danzig, Durham, North Carolina-based WAILIN STORMS merges doom punk and harrowing rock into something fans of TSOL, Social Distortion, Murder City Devils, Laughing Hyenas, Hot Water Music, Pussy Galore and Clockcleaner alike will find themselves immersed in. Following 2011’s Bone Colored Moon and 2014’s Shiver EPs, the band now prepares to unveil their sprawling full-length recording. Recorded and mixed at Warrior Sound, by Al Jacob and mastered by Carl Saff, One Foot In The Flesh Grave serves as a warning shot to all things safe, prescribed, and banal; these seven songs of deep, dark, swampy and catchy-as-all-hell new material serve as hymns for the ongoing funeral procession of everyday life. Crossing its path bestows the karmic powers of a black cat in reverse. Completed with artwork by Bruno Guerreiro of Decibel Magazine, One Foot In The Flesh Grave will help make WAILIN STORMS a household name to all as the album makes its grim rising this harvest season.

WAILIN STORMS: Magic Bullet Records Issues November Release Details For Debut LP By Doom Punk Quartet

Oct 09 2015

mark-maya-photography-wailin-storms-2_web[photo by Mark Maya]

Magic Bullet Records has locked down November 20th as the official release date for One Foot In The Flesh Grave, the debut LP from Durham, North Carolina-based WAILIN STORMS.

WAILIN STORMS creatively merges doom punk and swampy rock, led by ominous, blues-driven vocals reminiscent of Danzig and Samhain, while 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; think the Murder City Devils… but if they actually murdered people under possession by the god-damned devil. Following 2011’s Bone Colored Moon and 2014’s Shiver EPs, the band now prepares to unveil their sprawling full-length recording.

WAILIN STORMS One Foot In The Flesh Grave serves as a warning shot to all things safe, prescribed, and banal; the band’s deep, dark, swampy and catchy-as-all-hell new material bears seven hymns for the ongoing funeral procession of everyday life. Crossing its path bestows the karmic powers of a black cat in reverse. Recorded and mixed at Warrior Sound, by Al Jacob and mastered by Carl Saff, the bold production of these seven tales pushes the bending, wayward guitars and thick rumbling of the percussive end out heavily alongside the nonstop dynamic lead and supplementary vocal performances. Completed with artwork by Bruno Guerreiro of Decibel magazine, One Foot In The Flesh Grave will help make WAILIN STORMS a household name to all as the album makes its grim rising this harvest season.

Magic Bullet Records will issue One Foot In The Flesh Grave on all digital platforms as well as both red and clear vinyl pressings on November 20th. Audio previews, an official video and more on the album will be unveiled in the days ahead. Vinyl preorders are also still pending, but digital preorders are available early at Bandcamp HERE. And if you missed it, the album trailer is playing RIGHT HERE.

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

Sep 23 2015

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.
