FROM OBSCENE EXTREME 2015 PROMOTERS:
THE ULTIMATE DEATH/GRIND MASSACRE OF HEAD CLEANER FROM GREECE!!!

The death/grind grinder from Greece called HEAD CLEANER produces a high-quality and technically complex mosh similar to the production of the giants of Napalm Death from the last decade. HEAD CLEANER is not a bunch of newcomers though but experienced veterans of Greek death/grind scene, who have released a vast number of quality recordings.

The latest one being a split LP with Progress of Inhumanity. This squad will certainly be welcome as another genre stalwart at the next year Obscene Extreme!!!

POWER VIOLENCE IS STILL ALIVE!!! DILUTION!!!

That's right, this style again conquers his lost position among the extreme music listeners in recent years. So it is logical that new bands bursting with energy begin to emerge. A great example can be the Italian tornado of Dilution inspired by the Japanese thrashcore/power violence school in the vein of Fuck On The Beach or SOB.

The line-up consisting of well-known faces from bands like Sick/Tired or xKatexMoshx. Briefly speaking, loud and fast!!!

GOSPEL OF THE WITCHES: KARYN CRISIS' Gospel Of The Witches signs to Century Media Records!!!

U.S. extreme metal warriors GOSPEL OF THE WITCHES (featuring KARYN CRISIS and DAVIDE TISO-CRISIS-EPHEL DUATH, ROSS DOLAN-IMMOLATION, MIKE HILL- TOMBS and CHARLIE SCHMID-VAURA) have signed  record deal with CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS as the band shall unleash a debut in 2005.




FROM CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS:
KARYN CRISIS is a name worthy of more praise and attention. While select circles of people know and appreciate her prior vocals with the critically-acclaimed CRISIS from 1993-2006, many are still naive to her influence and impact. This demure girl raged harder than many men, slugging it out with impactful live performances at hardcore and metal shows, screaming often times like a demon, other times singing like an angel. She led the way and has become an influence for female-fronted extreme bands. And then she disappeared. In the interim she made a name for herself as an artisan via her paintings and leatherwork, and now she's returned with a stellar new project, KARYN CRISIS' GOSPEL OF THE WITCHES, and a fabulous new album to be released next year through Century Media Records.

"This band began 5 years ago in Tuscany, Italy, as an alchemical journey between Davide Tiso (EPHEL DUATH) and myself as we searched for a way to musically honor the Witches who came before me and who have been guiding me in Spirit, teaching me their Ancient Ways," explains Karyn.

The album was financed by fans via websites like Kickstarter and Etsy; then Karyn together with Davide Tiso, Ross Dolan (IMMOLATION), Mike Hill (TOMBS) and Charlie Schmid (VAURA) recorded the 13 songs at The Basement Recordings in North Carolina with producer Jamie King (BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, THE CONTORTIONIST).

Upon completion of the album, Karyn began shopping the album and reconnected with Century Media President Marco Barbieri, who had signed CRISIS back in 1993 when he worked at Metal Blade Records.

"In my opinion, Karyn is a true renaissance artist and I am intrigued by anything she puts her touch on," explains Barbieri. "She remains an undeniable icon in the annals of hardcore and metal with her vocal and live performances, and I am pleased that she has been re-infected by the muse and is sharing her undeniable talents again for longtime fans as well as a new generation. GOSPEL OF THE WITCHES is not CRISIS; it has her fingerprint all over it, lending an ear to early influences, but here she and her band take the listener on all sorts of new journeys and adventures musically, vocally and emotionally. I am proud to be working with Karyn again."

In closing, Karyn states, "I'm so excited to announce that I've signed a worldwide deal for my new band, KARYN CRISIS' GOSPEL OF THE WITCHES, to Century Media. Working out this new partnership is a testament to the enduring connections my art and voice have made throughout the years with industry people and fans who've continued to support me and encourage me to keep singing."
