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

Sep 15 2015

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.

Durham, North Carolina-based WAILIN STORMS has announced a wave of Eastern US tour dates in advance of their impending debut LP, which will see Fall release via Magic Bullet Records.

WAILIN STORMS will spend the transition from Summer into Autumn by delivering their gritty, doom/punk inspired Southern anthems to throngs of residents spanning the majority of the East Coast and over into the Midwest states. 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. Highlights of the tour include shows with Magic Bullet labelmates Sweet Cobra in Chicago and with cohorts We Are Hex in Indianapolis, a hometown record release show in Durham alongside Fleshwounds on October 23rd, and a set at The Fest 14 in Gainesville, joining the huge lineup also including Andrew W.K., Cult Leader, Government Issue, Iron Reagan, Lagwagon, Modern Life Is War, Title Fight, Young Widows and dozens more.

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.

As Richmond, Virginia’s BLEACH EVERYTHING unloads their Free Inside 7” via Magic Bullet Records, the EP’s closing track, “Facehugger,” is now playing at Rue-Morgue Magazine.

Free Inside is the first proper 7” EP from punk/hardcore ragers, BLEACH EVERYTHING, the band uniting a set of friends previously or currently also hailing from Iron Reagan, Mammoth Grinder, Jesuit, Suppression, and Corn On Macabre and countless others. Specializing in short, fast, loud, violent, and often absurd music, 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.

On the heels of a debut split 7” with Los Angeles-based Vors, released earlier in the year, the Free Inside EP lyrically delivers rants focused on such themes as self-empowerment and, self-reliance, and for its closing track, “Facehugger” showcases the band’s dark horror/sci-fi influences with a rampant space terror chronicle. The track is featured alongside exclusive commentary from BLEACH EVERYTHING vocalist and Magic Bullet Records owner, Brent Eyestone, on the theme of the song itself and on the band as a whole, as this is just the beginning for this rabid outfit.

Get wrapped-up in BLEACH EVERYTHING’s “Facehugger” via Rue-Morgue Magazine RIGHT HERE.

The Free Inside 7” is out now via Magic Bullet Records, available on both clear and black wax available HERE, and available for download HERE and through all major digital outlets.

THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA: Deathkamp Ov The Skull + Funeral Embrace Double EP Slaying In Its Entirety At Noisey

Aug 21 2015

[photo by Fred Pessaro]
Collecting the latest pair of 7″ titles from the THE INFAMOUS GEHENNADeathkamp Ov The Skull + Funeral Embrace, is now slaying punishing anything in earshot, streaming in its entirety via Noisey.

Showing multiple hazardous personalities of longtime West Coast negative hardcore instigators, THE INFAMOUS GEHENNADeathkamp Ov The Skull + Funeral Embrace is just days from release via Magic Bullet Records, compiling both records onto CD and digital formats in correlation with their vinyl editions through Holy Terror Records. While the latter portion, Funeral Embrace, has already been infecting the population since early this year, this is the first time the Deathkamp Ov The Skull tracks are only being leaked for the first time. The three new tracks bring elements of the band to light that while may be unlike the majority of their catalog, they remain equally as persuasive and demoralizing, one track including additional auditory demise courtesy of Integrity’s Dwid Hellion and Robert Orr.

Noisey now unloads THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA’s Deathkamp Ov The Skull + Funeral Embrace in its entirety at THIS LOCATION.

Deathkamp Ov The Skull + Funeral Embrace will see digital release on August 14th, and the CD on August 21st through Magic Bullet Records. Preorders for the CD are available now RIGHT HERE, and the digital available via Bandcamp HERE and iTunes HERE.

Among other sporadic shows, THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA will raid the two-day Deadfest in Oakland, California this Friday and Saturday with the likes of Capitalist Casualties, Terrorizer, Nausea, Excruciating Terror, Primitive Man and dozens more. The band will also shortly be announcing the details on a two-week tour with Theories this Fall, with support from Landmine Marathon on several dates, a large European tour is being planned for 2016.

THE INFAMOUS GEHENNA Live:
8/15/2015 The Oakland Metro – Oakland, CA @ Deadfest
8/23/2015 Shea’s Tavern – Reno, NV w/ Necrot, Trenchgrinder, Countress

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.

INTEGRITY Reissues Palm Sunday Live Album This Week

Aug 21 2015

This Friday, one of them most villainous live sets ever caught on film makes its resurgence into the public domain, as Magic Bullet Records reissues the classic Palm Sunday from iconic metallic hardcore legion, INTEGRITY.

Palm Sunday is a CD and DVD set which documents a 1992 performance by Cleveland hardcore legends INTEGRITY, captured in their hometown at infamous local venue, Peabody’s. Coming a year off the release of their 1991-released debut album, Those Who Fear Tomorrow, the band performs eight songs from the LP, plus B-side rarities “Rebirth” and “Live it Down.” This particular recording and accompanying video holds a special place in the hearts of the INTEGRITY faithful, as it features the revered lineup of Dwid Hellion on vocals, guitarists Aaron Melnick and Chris Smith, bassist Leon Melnick, and drummer Dave Araca. Viewers can expect pure chaos, as Hellion goads and taunts audience members between songs, a switchblade surfaces from the audience, gunshots are fired, and a general mania overcomes all in attendance that night now so many years ago.

The 2015 reissue of this fan favorite comes packaged in a jumbo double digipak with liners from Aaron “A2″ Melnick, photography from the show, and art from Dwid Hellion. The DVD portion is exclusive to the physical format and not available via iTunes, Bandcamp, or traditional digital distributors. Having just seen its official digital reissue last week, the new CD/DVD edition is out this Friday, August 21st.

Stream the 2015 issue of INTEGRITY’s notorious Palm Sunday now at THIS LOCATION.

Orders for the Palm Sunday CD/DVD package can be placed HERE and the download via Bandcamp HERE and through all major digital platforms.

Additional digital/CD reissues of INTEGRITY‘s seminal back-catalog are being arranged for release through Magic Bullet Records in the coming months, including the Den Of Iniquity collection of early material and B-sides, as well as the band’s 1991 debut album, Those Who Fear Tomorrow, and 1995′s landmark Humanity Is The Devil.

Palm Sunday Track Listing:
1. Those Who Fear Tomorrow
2. Judgment Day
3. Harder They Fall
4. Wings Tear
5. Dawn Of A New Apocalypse
6. In Contrast Of Sin
7. Rebirth
8. Die Hard
9. Lundgren Crucifixion
10. Live It Down
