DEMONICAL: CANCELS OUT OF Underground Unleashed Festival in Darjeeling, India 9/30/2011


Swedish death metal warriors DEMONICAL have announced the band has canceled out of the UNDERGROUND UNLEASHED FESTIVAL set to take place 9/30/2011 Darjeeling, India.
FROM DEMONICAL:
We have been forced to cancel our upcoming show at the Underground Unleashed Festival in Darjeeling, India, scheduled for September 30th due to economical reasons and the festival-organisers common incompetence.
Being booked for almost a year and despite several promises during the last months it is now utterly clear that the organiser doesn’t have the economical funds needed in order to purchase and supply us with the flight-tickets agreed upon.

Unfortunately due to the nature of the festival-deal and the economical terms within it leaves us no other option than to also cancel the show in Bangkok, Thailand, scheduled for October 2nd.

We are truly sorry for the cancelled shows but as you certainly understand the situation is beyond our control.

We do wanna point out that Bloodline Productions from Thailand are not the ones to blame, they have made everything in their power in order to sort things out and make the Bangkok-show happen but sadly this is now the only option.

Thanx for understanding, hopefully we are able to spread our Swedish Death Metal Darkness over Thailand and the rest of South East Asia sometime in 2012.

Martin & Demonical
Thanks-Stay Metal, Stay Brutal-\m/ -l-

RUSH: SIGNS TO ROADRUNNER RECORDS


Canadian progressive rock legends RUSH have inked a deal with ROADRUNNER RECORDS.
FROM ROADRUNNER RECORDS:
‎RUSH joins the Roadrunner Records family! New album due out 2012.
Roadrunner Records is pleased to announce a new worldwide partnership with Anthem Records and rock trio Rush. The band will remain on Anthem/Universal Music in Canada only.

“We have tremendous respect for Roadrunner Records, and what Cees Wessels and Jonas Nachsin have built on a worldwide level. After years of Roadrunner pursuing the band, Tom Lipsky presented a deal that worked and the timing was right. We wanted to be at a label focused on the rock genre – and that’s Roadrunner,” said Ray Danniels, manager of Rush.

“In another life I worked with Rush and their great management team more than 30 years ago and to have Rush finally on the Roadrunner label is a dream come true. I am grateful for Ray Danniels’ confidence in this new partnership,” said Cees Wessels, Roadrunner Records Chairman.

“Rush has a tradition of excellence and independence, both in the studio and on the live stage, and they remain as prolific today as at any point in their career. We are excited to be their label partners,” said Tom Lipsky, President of Lipsky Music, LLC, who brokered the significant deal for Roadrunner.

The first release from Rush through this deal will be various live configurations, recorded during their highly successful Time Machine tour that wrapped earlier this summer. Details of the release will be revealed in the coming weeks.

With more than 40 million records sold worldwide and countless sold-out tours, Rush – Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart – is not only one of the most inventive and compelling groups in rock history, but remains one of the most popular. The RIAA has certified Rush for the third most consecutive gold/platinum studio albums by a rock band, topped only by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Rush’s vast catalog includes such classics as 1974’s self-titled debut, 1976’s 2112, 1981’s Moving Pictures, 1996’s Test For Echo, and 2002’s Vapor Trails. Rush’s most recent studio album, 2007’s Snakes & Arrows, debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200, marking the band’s highest chart debut since 1993, as well as their eleventh top 10 album in the U.S. Their 20th studio album, entitled Clockwork Angels, is due in 2012.

In addition to their commercial success, Rush has also been recognized with a number of Juno Awards and multiple Grammy nominations, including one for the acclaimed documentary Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage at this year’s gala event. Enjoying a recent pop culture renaissance, Rush made a rare television appearance - their first in over 30 years - on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” and a memorable cameo in the film I Love You, Man. A career-chronicling Rolling Stone feature summed up the renowned rock trio’s continuing artistic vitality by observing, “It’s true that Rush doesn’t mean today what it did in ’76 or even ’96. It may mean more.” For more information about Rush, visit www.rush.com.

INSOMNIUM: UNLEASH NEW VIDEO FOR "UNSUNG" ON YOU TUBE


Finnish melodic metal masters INSOMNIUM have unleashed a new video (ON YOU TUBE) for the track "Unsung" from the bands anticipated new release entitled "One For Sorrow" due to be unleashed October 17th in the rest of Europe and October 18th in North America on CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS.
FROM Ville Friman (guitar) INSOMNIUM:“Unsung" was the last song we finished only just one day before hitting the studio. It's a bit more in vein of early Insomnium and definitely reminds us from our roots. Regardless of bowing to past, this song gives you good insight of the versatility of One For Sorrow and also introduces something new in terms of clean vocals in courtesy of myself. Hope you enjoy the song and stay tuned for updates concerning the pre-order packages!”
Vocalist Niilo Sevänen continues: "One for Sorrow is a truly epic album and the tour will surely be immense! We get to visit many of our favorite cities and meet the fans who have long waited for Insomnium headlining show. From London to Ljubljana we are looking forward to see you all!"

ITP V.011 UPDATE: BLOGSPOT NEW INTERFACE? (ME LIKED THE OLD VERSION BETTER) HUMANITY IS DOOMED (DOOM METAL NEWS) TODAY/ ITP V.011 SHOW REVIEW T'NITE




http://bloggerindraft.blogspot.com/2011/07/bloggers-updated-interface-now.html
Has anyone logged into BLOGSPOT/BLOGGER today? SURPRISE! There is a new OPTIONAL interface in your DASHBOARD. There is link in your DASHBOARD "Try the updated Blogger interface, modern and.." It's up to you, my suggestion, don't bother and don't bother ME about this, I bet the info regarding the new BLOGSPOT interface leaked before BLOGSPOT bloggers were informed. LAAAAME.


:Rolls Eyes: For some reason, I panicked, I raised my eyebrows and stated "No, I'm used to, I prefer and like the OLD BLOGSPOT interface". It's like fucking a new girlfriend (I know, terrible, analogy).
ITP V.011 is about to write and post HUMANITY IS DOOMED (DOOM METAL NEWS) today and the last thing I need is to figure out a new "interface" as I really like certain features on the old interface, (link under TITLE, ect) as it would hypothetically take a few days to learn the new interface. I don't have a few days. I'll keep you updated on the new BLOGSPOT interface, I don't think, but I'm not sure if it's mandatory, the new interface vs. BLOGGERS old interface may be optional.
FROM BLOGGER HELP:


You use http://draft.blogger.com

This new interface doesn't have Edit HTML option. You need to use the old interface of Blogger in Draft

- Find the ID of your Blog

- Then call the old version using


http://draft.blogger.com/html?blogID=

I hope this will help you

--
I'm sure that the NEW BLOGSPOT interface is a BETA test, as it MIGHT become a mandatory interface. If ya don't like the new BLOGSPOT interface, don't blame me, protest on the BLOGGER "HELP FORUM" to BLOGGER/BLOGSPOT:
http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/blogger/thread?tid=28106b6d309319fb&hl=en

FROM THE NEXT WEB: These changes will be rolling out from today, and users should gradually be given the option to switch to the new interface over the next few ...



I'm guessing, maybe I SHOULD learn the new BLOGGER/BLOGSPOT interface, it may take a while as I prefer that my post count does NOT shrink while learning, specifically while writing metal news features and reviews as those ITP features are time consuming.

BLOGSPOT/BLOGGER, during the fall of 2009, BLOGSPOT/BLOGGER offered a new editor for posting, I didn't like that and kept with the old post editor. Sorry, I'm old school.

However, I DID try and liked the MYSPACE new interface as that has a TWITTER/MYSPACE synced live feed, (PUURFECT for nubes like me on TWITTER whom haven't added all thier freinds from MYSPACE to TWITTER. I have over 1, 800 friends on MYSPACE, many whom have left for FACEBOOK or/and TWITTER) as that indeed is an improvement over MYSPACE's fall 2010 upgrade.

As we all know, many left MYSPACE for FACEBOOK and many whom would hypothetically use both MYSPACE and FACEBOOK (primarily bands) were alienated via the MYSPACE 2010 "upgrade".

BLOGSPOT and GOOGLE had been BETA TESTING the new BLOGGER and GOOGLE interface (I noticed the new GOOGLE interface btw, ok?-I didn't notice any beta testing of the new BLOGSPOT, lmao until NOW) since spring early summer 2011.

In a worst case scenario, I'll test out the new BLOGSPOT/BLOGGER interface, if I don't like it and specifically if it becomes mandatory I'll export ITP elsewhere. We'll see, I'll try to be "open minded".

BTW, this blog entry is via the old BLOGSPOT interface.

FROM BLOGSPOT:
http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2011/07/try-bloggers-new-interface.html



Try Blogger's New Interface

Google promised a new Blogger interface back in March and started a limited test in April. "The new design is not only cleaner and more modern, but it also uses Google Web Toolkit, delivering the latest in web technology."

The new interface is now available in Blogger in Draft, but it looks quite different. "Over the last couple of months, we've made significant improvements to our new user interface. First and foremost, we've incorporated your feedback and made numerous fixes based on that feedback. Also, we've updated the look and feel of our new design, inspired by Google's newest design evolutions," explains Google. Blogger uses Ajax, so all the pages load a lot faster, including the post editor. Unfortunately, Blogger is still very slow when you perform a search and try to display posts or comments.


Blogger's new UI is cleaner and it offers additional information about your posts: the number of pageviews. Tabs have been replaced by a vertical menu and the list of labels is now a drop-down. The post editor is much better, especially if you use the default view. Blogger's new editor takes up most of the page and post settings are now included in a sidebar.


There's a lot of white space in the new interface, buttons aren't big enough to be readable and Blogger includes too much information that's not very useful: the total number of published comments and the total number of pageviews. The new interface is a mixed bag: it's modern, clean, faster and more powerful, but there are many things that need to be changed before replacing the existing interface.

You can try the new UI at draft.blogger.com and you also have the option to make it the default interface.
FROM THE NEXT WEB:
Google’s Blogger is one of the grand old daddies of blog platforms and while remaining widely used, there’s no doubt that the interface itself is looking a bit tired these days. It looks like that’s set to change this year as Google has today teased us with a glimpse at a radical overhaul.

At first look, we’d say WordPress has been an influence on the design of the new dashboard. Google says it’s been built using its Web Toolkit for creating high performance Ajax-based UIs. That ‘WordPress-y’ look seems a little less obvious in the new post composing window, which seems to hold on to a little more of that old-school Blogger look, while not making us feel like it’s still 2005.

Google is also offering a first look at a content discovery tool that it says “lets you uncover interesting and related content based on the topics of the blog you’re currently reading”. The video below offers glimpses of it all, along with a look at some very sexy mobile themes that it appears will enlivening phone screens at some point this year.

There’s no word on exactly when these new designs will be rolled out other than a vague “2011″, but if you’re a staunch supporter of Blogger I’m sure you’ll be watching keenly.
FROM TUNTECH:
The all new Blogger 2011 interface is here! Major improvements resolved around layout and design.
Blogger has been promising its users of great upgrades and major reconstruction of the Blogger interface in 2011. Earlier this year, Blogger has published a video on its Youtube channel where it shows a glimpse of the all-new 2011 Blogger, though, it was never available to try in Blogger in Draft after the publishing of that video.

Just today, I somehow clicked on Blogger in Draft to see if there is any new features. Unexpectedly, the very anticipated Blogger 2011 interface poped out and I was in total chock for few seconds. Now, what I first notice is the complete make-over that Blogger has under taken. The new Blogger theme is a mix of orange and grey colors rather than the old blue, brownish and orange colors. The design seemed more stylish and I actually liked it very much since they've given up on the ugly font of 'Trebuchet' -- Only God knows how much I dislike that font --. To sum it up, the work that Blogger engineers did revolved majorly around the graphical interface. I didn't notice a new feature or soever. The re-design consisted of icons, fonts, colors and general layout enhancements.

The first good thing about about the new layout is that all tabs have been transformed into a left sidebar with small icons. Now, each time you click on a tab in the older Blogger interface, this will result accessing a new page, as if you've refreshed the page entirely or you've clicked on a link so the browser will load a new page, however with the new tabs, things are more dynamic. Your Blogger will update the content without the need of refreshing the page. It's like web 2.0. The new user of the 2011 Blogger might feel disoriented at first sight, thus exploring pages as a first step is quite important to get used to the new layout since everything has literally changed from bottom to top.


Good things about the 2011 Blogger interface:
1. The design is pretty slick, the font and colors are in great fusion with the background and the overall page seems clear and well represented.
2. The dynamic content browsing feature can be time-saving for you (Anything done in the old Blogger resulted a page loading, not anymore with the new Blogger dynamic interface)
3. When you post a new post, your editor will spread across the page entirely so you'd be able to focus on your writing.
4. A nice overview tab has been added to the homepage of your Blogger dashboard: it gives a great insight on how your blog is doing.
Bad things about the 2011 Blogger interface:
1. No new features or templates got added, just visual improvements.
2. The make-over didn't keep any aspect of the previous interface so everything has been moved off its original place and you might disoriented at first encounter with the new interface.
3.The Blogger 2011 interface is still beta.
EDIT HTML IN NEW BLOGGER INTERFACE: (BTW, some widgets are installed via "EDIT HTML", I'm guessing the WIDGETS will perish after one transfers to the new BETA BLOGGER INTERFACE, you'll have to re install anything that you used "EDIT HTML" for):
If you are using the Blogger in Draft version and are looking for the Online Edit HTML Feature for Blogger/Blogspot blogs, you can for the time being access it at the URL:
http://www.blogger.com/html?blogID=[YOUR BLOG'S ID]

If you don’t know your blog’s ID, just go to your Blog Dashboard Page for the particular blog, and copy the blog ID from that URL Address. The entire URL is like:

http://draft.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=[YOUR BLOG'S ID]#overview

So, just copy the Blog ID from there and paste it in the first URL Address to access the old Edit HTML Page. You might also want to bookmark the link to access it directly in the future.
If you want to stop using this workaround, I’ve also outlined an alternate method to Edit HTML code of your Blogger/Blogspot blog’s template below in detail.
Go to the Blogger/Blogspot dashboard or home page and click on the “Dashboard” link of the blog whose template html code you want to edit, present in the left sidebar.
Now, once you are in the blog’s dashboard page, click on the template link in the left sidebar.
Once you are on the template page of the blog, scroll down to the bottom of the page in order to edit or change the blog template’s html code.
At the bottom of the blog’s template page, you can see two links, one to upload/download the blog’s html template code as an xml file, and another option to change or revert the blog’s template to one of the classic templates. Choose the first option and another menu will automatically appear.
Once you see the links to upload and download the HTML template as an xml file, click on the download button to download the current template, and save it. Now make a copy of the original template file and save it inside another folder, to avoid changing the original template by creating a backup.
Once you have saved a copy of the original xml template file, open the file with a text editor like Notepad or Wordpad for Microsoft Windows, or say Emacs file editor for linux installations or an equivalent Mac application. Make the changes you need to make and save the new edited template xml file.
After saving the new template, upload it to the blogger server, by going to the webpage previously opened and clicking on the Browse and upload button below the download template button.
After uploading the new edited version of the template you can review the changes on the blog, and if necessary re-edit the template and upload it again, until you are satisfied with the final layout.
IMPORTANT NOTE***
To avoid any rude shocks, make sure you save a copy of the template before you begin editing it, and preferably, make a copy of the edited template each time you make a change, so that you can go back to the previous versions and find out what went wrong in case there is a problem.
FROM PC WORLD:
Google has been tinkering with the interface of its blogging platform, Blogger, for months, and it's finally rolling out the changes it's made across the service. On Wednesday, Google announced that the changes--which should make the interface easier to use and more efficient--will be appearing shortly.

Blogger's graphics have been improved, but it doesn't stop there. According to Blogger Product Manager Chang Kim, "We've rewritten the entire editing and management experience from scratch so it’s faster and more efficient for you—and easier for us to update and improve over time," Kim wrote in a company blog.

Since posting to a blog is the most important thing for bloggers, Google has made accessing the editor for writing and modifying posts smoother and swifter. Whether a blogger is in dashboard mode or on the settings page, they can return to the posting editor by clicking a button at the tops of those pages.



The post editor has been simplified and expanded to offer more space for writing and reviewing posts.

The dashboard also has a new look--now it has an "Overview" section. This section gives bloggers a quick snapshot of activity at their blog. It has a graph of recent traffic numbers, for instance. It also gives bloggers a view of recent comment activity and a tally of follower counts. And for inspiration, the section includes helpful links, a feed of updates from other bloggers and a showcase of other blogs that Google thinks will interest the blogger.



Another alteration in the new interface is the replacement of the "Monetization" tab with an "Earnings" tab. This change is primarily cosmetic, but is part of Google's efforts to make the language it uses throughout its services easier for users to understand.

Whether it's called Monetization or Earnings, the tab still refers to income earned by a blogger through AdSense ads placed on their blog pages. When AdSense is activated through the tab, Blogger automatically retrieves earnings information from AdSense, saving the blogger a trip to the AdSense Website.

Google has been touting the Blogger changes since March. Even though Blogger has consistently been one of the top 10 visited websites on the Internet, it has changed very little for more than a decade. In its first major upgrade in 2004, for example, the Blogger dashboard was enlarged and improved to allow posting by email. In 2006, it allowed blog posts to be categorized and drag-and-drop to be used when laying out pages. And…that's about it.

Recently, though, up-and-coming services such as Tumblr have outshined Blogger with slick interfaces, mobile apps, and better content discovery systems. More importantly, though, is that the new blogging services found ways to incorporate social networking techniques into what they offer. That social networking slant is something Google hopes to cash in on, too, with its Blogger revamp.

New Zealands, ULCERATE may just have released one of the most original, interesting and insightful death metal releases of 2009. ULCERATE amalgamate death metal and post avante garde/ progressive textures with uncanny technical musicianship and unconventional riff and song structures.. As if GORGUTS and IMMOLATION married PORTAL and DEMILICH and spawned a step child named ULCERATE. With a generation of SUFFOCATION, MORBID ANGEL and pig squealing clones littering the death metal scene, it is a pleasure to hear something so original and groundbreaking as the bleak soundscapes of ULCERATE's second label release "Everything Is Fire".
ULCERATES' "Everything is Fire" opens with the track entitled "Drown Within", with a ominous feed back, "Drown Within" sets the world on fire, all hell breaks loose, with a dark, sludgy, doomy atmosphere as if PORTAL met NEUROSIS in a steel cage wrestling match, but wait..Here come the blastbeats and as if IMMOLATION and GORGUTS jumped in on the wrestling match, an extreme metal riot.
There are so many riffs and unconventional time changes, it takes more than one listen to fully digest where ULCERATE is going musically, but it's so tight and very cohesive.
"We are Nil" is technical, but in a subtle sense, with an almost GORGUTS feel, as at the vocals integrate into some melodic guitar riffing..These riffs and time changes segue in the blink of an eye. Just amazing. At 3:47 the floor drops on "We are Nil" into post rock, avante guard , atmospheric jamming as THIS indeed is scarier, and darker than NEUROSIS.
"Withered and Obsolete" enters with very technical atonal riffing as ULCERATE take a riff and expand it, then segue into many others riffs, it's subtle, but to the point. ULCERATE's drummer, JAMIE SAINT MERAT is totally awesome behind the kit, propelling the awesome riffage, sprinkling in tight fills, and blastbeats. At 2:36 of "Withered and Obsolete", ULCERATE just grinds and brutalizes everything. By now, the listener should be dizzy from all of ULCERATE's riffs, so tasty and brutal in the darkest tunnel of bleak soundscapes.
"Caecus" blasts in with tech brutality, I just wish the vocals were higher in the mix. At 1:54
"Caecus" invokes a melodic riff as ULCERATE ride that riff into a bleakest other worldy atmospheric textures, so dark, and beautiful as if you stepped outside after a nuclear Holocaust. From there, "Caecus" invokes a brutal reality, with meaty, technical riffs into oblivion.
"Tyranny" invokes a dark, bleak atmosphere, a sort of funeral doom, untill 1:16 when ULCERATE ride the riff in majestically with new vocalist Paul Kelland, whom brings a dark, almost doomy atmosphere to ULCERATE's arsenal. "Tyranny" is a awesome example of how to integrate technical death metal with dark, doomier soundscapes, as fans of doom, avante gaurd and technical death metal have waiting for this there whole lives.
"The Earth at It's Knees" experiments with some post core riffs, almost NEUROSIS like in it's approach, melodic and beautiful in parts, untill 1:47 when ULCERATE pick up the pace, and brutalize everything: darkness, beauty and headbanging brutality.
"The Soulnessness Embraced", again, with a mighty post sludge doom intro, that would make NEUROSIS proud, and at 1:22 "The Soulnessness Embraced" blasts off into tech/death brutality and if riffs were a meal, you would be feasting on this song for months. I love the atonal riffing, it sets a bleak, depressive, apocalyptic atmosphere on ULCERATES "Everything Is Fire". At 5:37 of "The Soulnessness Embraced", even the slower parts are so captivating with awesome soft/loud dynamics, and now you know this brutal world is coming to an end. When ULCERATE vocalist Paul Kelland screams "Darkness!!!!" with such conviction, you know that he is sincere.
ULCERATE's latest release ends with the title track, "Everything Is Fire", crawling in at an apocalyptic mid pace until 2:25, when the band rides some tight technical death metal. At 3:13, "Everything Is Fire" segues into majestic sludge/stoner doom riffing, if only Paul Kelland vocals were mixed higher, as the song takes off into blastbeats..YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEH \m/, and YES ladies and gentlemen ULCERATE have invoked the apocalypse..\m/ \m/
I have to say that ULCERATE's "Everything Is Fire" is one of, if not the best death metal release of the year, taking death/extreme metal to sonic levels unheard, and only dreampt of. I was very excited to hear that NEUROTIC RECORDS merged with WILLOWTIP for North American distribution as those two labels and UNIQUE LEADER are at the fore front of groundbreaking extreme/death metal.
ULCERATE are band of integrity, originality and great musical vision. ULCERATE integrate technical death metal, with unconventional riffing, and bleak soundscapes. It's one thing to integrate technical death metal with brutality, it's another thing to do what death metal has been missing for years, integrate a dark, bleak, psychedelic atmosphere and creepy dissonance with brutal, technical riffing.
ULCERATE's "Everything is Fire" is a demanding, innovative listen, a seething monument into the darkest recesses of the human mind and an articulate, insightful, technical death metal juggernaut that can NOT be ignored.
Words can not be expressed, I'm floored, in a metal orgasm.

METAL INJECTION: SENIORS REVIEW BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and MURDOCH (MARDUK)

Marduk MMXI
Deep Ones @ www.indiemerchstore.com Always respect your elders, as your grandparents have been asked to review some recent extreme metal with alot of seniority and an open mind. METAL INJECTION asked three senior citizens to review the latest BLACK DAHLIA MURDER release and also interview Swedish black metal legends MARDUK. Grandma was really digging MARDUK (not Murdoch).
FROM METAL INJECTION:
You may recall the fine lady and gentlemen of Breakfast at Sulimay's. The concept of the show is to get 3 old people to review some modern bands. They've done metal reviews in the past, even doing a hilarious interview with Marduk. On this week's episode, they tackled The Black Dahlia Murder, and their new album, Ritual. The review is hilarious, especially because the female kept comparing this to "Murdoch" and how "Murdoch" was much better, except the band she actually meant to reference is MARDUK! Pure Gold.

New Zealand ULCERATE (a three piece from Auckland) floored me with the 2009 release "Everything Is Fire" integrating technical death metal, with unconventional riffing, bleak sounds capes, psychedelic atmosphere and creepy dissonance. ULCERATE amalgamate death metal and post avante garde/ progressive textures with uncanny technical musicianship and unconventional riff and song structures.
In early 2011, ULCERATE released the highly anticipated "The Destroyers Of All" an ambient, dark, atmospheric masterpiece of droning death metal.
Yes, droning death metal as "The Destroyers Of All" is an interesting listen indeed.
ULCERATE's "The Destroyers Of All" kicks off with the ominous track "Burning Skies".
"Burning Skies" is exceptional with a bleak, droning atmosphere, (akin to NEUROSIS, DEATHSPELL OMEGA, PORTAL) with amazing blast beats and the obvious and competent death vox. I didn't expect this, but I'm really digging it. At 4:14, ULCERATE's "Burning Skies" takes a dip into a slow droning, ambient doom jam before upping the ante with double bass and blastbeats, vocals.
ULCERATE's "The Dead Oceans" kicks in droning, and I must say ULCERATE drummer Jamie Saint Merat totally carries this band with mesmerizing, technical percussion, his double bass kicks are underrated. ULCERATE's "The Dead Oceans" drones in as the vocals kick in at 1:09 consolidating dissonant guitar riffing, (and not in the brutal, thrash sensibility) with an atonal, creepy chord structures adding an ambient atmosphere.
ULCERATE's "The Cold Becoming" blasts in as the most accessible track, faster in pace with a creepy, apocalyptic atmosphere, a very intimate listen. At 4:37, "The Cold Becoming" trade vocals for a truly amazing droning, atmospheric ending.
ULCERATE's "Beneath" creeps in with a strummed, dissonant riffs, setting for a dark, sinister atmosphere of unstructured and complex riffs. While, mesmerized in an atmospheric daze, (4:06) the vocals kick in "Beneath" you, unobtrusive and somewhat generic. At 4:29, "Beneath" evokes a faster pace, and dips downstream, dancing in and out of time changes, evoking a masterful atmosphere of dark, beautiful ambiance. AWESOME \m/
ULCERATES's "The Hollow Idols" blazes in featuring very technical drumming, and complex, droning riffs as the lack of songwriting makes the track monotonous. However,when ULCERATE's "The Hollow Idols" takes an instrumental, ambient break at 3:43, the tune hits home, fading into the vocals.
ULCERATE's "Omens" fades in with an ambient, psychedelic atmosphere, morphing into defined, structured chords and riffs before dipping in and out of ambient instrumental breaks and tight, apocalyptic atmospheres. ULCERATE's "Omen" evokes an disharmonic, tight stoner doom riff, riding into the apocalypse.
ULCERATES's "The Destroyers Of All" closes with the title track as each defined repetitive riff is expanded every few measures, morphing into a sea of droning, dissonant riffs. "The Destroyers Of All" vocals swim ashore at 1:39 as the pace quickens with excellent drumming. "The Destroyers Of All" riffs and atmospheres crash like waves, all devastating in their impact, soaking the listener, in apocalyptic, bleak textures, until the carcass of this doomed human race is washed ashore.

ULCERATE's "The Destroyers Of All" is a devastating, insightful and unique release. ULCERATE slows down the pace and expands on the dissonant riffing, and ambient droning atmospheres featured in smaller doses on "Everything Is Fire", relying less on brutality and speed, and more on ambient, dissonant, riffing and bleak sounds capes. It is easy to lose track of space and time as ULCERATE's "The Destroyer's Of All" feature lengthy compositions, the release should be listened to as a whole. ULCERATE drummer Jamie Saint Merat has to be applauded for a standout performance with tasteful blastbeats and excellent double kick bass drum work. ULCERATE enter a realm of post death metal with the bands bleak brand of sludge/doom influence evoking a suffocating, atmosphere of apocalyptic dread..

ULCERATE's "The Destroyers Of All" is ambitious as again I'm enlightened. ULCERATE are an epic and unconventional musical concept.

ITP V.011 THE ART OF DANCE: PART 5: "THE PIT: A FILM ABOUT CROWD SURFING" /UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA STUDENT WRITES THESIS ON MOSHING



We're back with ITP V.011 THE ART OF DANCE PART 4 as this month we're consolidating METAL AT THE MOVIES, and THE ART OF DANCE this ONE time as the art of moshing seems to be both a grad student and documentary directors wet dream.
A new documentary has been unleashed entitled "THE PIT: A FILM ABOUT CROWD SURFING" directed by Dave Depares via RELENTLESS ENERGY DRINK.
FROM BLABBERMOUTH.NET:
Relentless Energy Drink has just released the fifth entry in the 2011 Short Stories film competition, which focuses on crowd surfing and the connection between bands and fans through the mosh pit.

Directed by Dave Depares, "The Pit: A Film About Crowd Surfing" introduces us to the fans who risk ejection from the venue, the musicians who live it every night (including Liam Carmier of CANCER BATS and Lee Spielman of TRASH TALK) and the bouncers who try to keep everyone safe. The film contrasts the focused energy of the band with the seeming chaos of the pit.

Depares draws on his dual experiences of directing music videos, and reviewing hundreds of gigs as a music journalist, to get under the skin of the fans and show how they see the art of crowd surfing.

"I've always been fascinated by crowd politics, the way different crowds respond to different bands, the changing energy levels, the positioning of various crowd members within the venue and their roles within the crowd," he says. "There are the planks, the head-nodders, the dancers, the pogoers, the moshers, and the crowd surfers."

"The Pit: A Film About Crowd Surfing" studies the rituals of crowd-surfing, moshing, pogoing and their related activities, attempting to unfold the psychology of those who partake in these manic, raucous celebrations of energy and emotion. It's a study of the politics and anthropology therein, and of the detached hedonism that its proponents gorge themselves on. The film delves deeper into the psychology of the pit, and aims to illustrate that there’s more to it than meets the eye. Depares finds a strange sort of beauty within the chaos, and exposes a world that was previously only known to those foolhardy enough to experience it at first-hand.

VIDEO BELOW: TRAILER FOR "THE PIT: A FILM ABOUT CROWD SURFING":

Gabby Riches — who also runs a student group called "Heavy Metal On Campus" described moshing as a social experience, something not widely understood or even respected by some.

"People go into the mosh pit to show their appreciation for the band if you know their music, or for playing your favorite songs," she said. "It's also a way to build friendships. Afterwards, moshers affirm each other with back-patting and hugs. Often they're the same people in the pit at each concert, so a community is formed."

On unwritten rules of mosh-pit etiquette:

"Rules of etiquette include that if someone falls you pick them up right away; not wearing spiked bands or jewelry that could injure others, and no sexual contact. People look out for each other in the pit; we want people to have a great experience."

On women in mosh pits:

"Women say they feel a sense of safety even though it's very physical and very aggressive, because the etiquette is being maintained. Male moshers are also very welcoming of having women in the mosh pit. Many men [I interviewed] revealed that they are pleasantly surprised when they receive a solid hit from a woman; it adds a different dynamic and challenge to the usually male experience. And overall, metalheads are active in constructing a sense of equality within the mosh pit."


Gabby Riches, a UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA (CANADA) student (master's student in the faculty of physical education) is writing her thesis on MOSHING.
http://www.cbc.ca/radioactive/episode/2011/08/10/gabby-riches---mosh-pit-culture/#
FROM EDMONTON JOURNAL:
EDMONTON - Landon Barrowman’s leg has been broken in three places — a metal rod holds everything together — “just because kids don’t know how to mosh.”

There is, apparently, a right way to mosh, along with unspoken rules. But as Barrowman can attest, not everyone gets it.

Now a University of Alberta graduate student has shoved her way into tightly packed, pushy crowds at heavy metal concerts all in the name of academic research.

Gabby Riches, a master’s student in the faculty of physical education, is writing her thesis on mosh pits for a degree in recreation and leisure studies.

Riches, 25, has been a heavy metal fan since she was 15. During her undergraduate degree, she decided to combine her hobby and her studies and asked one of her professors if she could do a paper on metal music and immigrant integration.

Her professor liked it, so she did another paper on women’s experiences in heavy metal. She realized she was interested in music fans, so that led her to study mosh pits for her graduate degree. Riches also runs a student group called Heavy Metal on Campus.

Moshing started in the early 1980s in the American hard core punk scene. A band called Bad Brains used to yell at their audience to “mash it up.”

“But the singer had a thick Jamaican accent, so people heard ‘mash’ as ‘mosh,’” said Riches.

Mosh pits grew in popularity over the next two decades and became a mainstay at heavy metal and punk concerts.

Riches describes a mosh pit as a space in front of a stage where a group of fans gather and form a tightly packed crowd. A heavy metal mosh pit involves pushing, shoving and sometimes crowd surfing, whereas a punk mosh pit involves more swinging, jumping and diving. The “circle pit” and the “wall of death” are the two main types of mosh pit.

“Circle pits are most common in Europe. Everyone runs in a circle, and forms sort of a doughnut shape,” Riches said, adding headbangers sometimes go into the space in the middle and dance using their head.

“In the wall of death, two groups of people at either end of the floor run at each other, collide and form sort of a solid pit.”

There are rules to moshing, like no spiked jewelry and no sexual contact. One of the most important ones is to help someone up if they fall.

“The worst is when you can’t get help up if you fall. You become conscious of pain rather than pleasure,” Riches said.

Moshing etiquette, Riches said, is an important part of the culture, and moshing enthusiast Barrowman believes that’s a good reason for an academic study on moshing and mosh pits.

Landon, founder of local punk blog Dead City Press, said such a study could help educate people about what moshing is really about.

“There’s definitely a weird rift between what people know coming into moshing and what people experience with it,” he said, adding there is moshing courtesy which a lot of people don’t know about.

Barrowman said he grew up in a scene where people knew courtesy and “how to pick you up and treat you nicely,” referring to one of the main rules Riches pointed out — if someone falls, help them up.

“There are a lot of people out there who really need to understand and hear something like that,” Barrowman said.

Riches described moshing as a social experience, something not widely understood or even respected by some.

“At first, moshing can feel intimidating, frightening, because it’s physical and aggressive. It looks violent, but I don’t like to say that because it isn’t.”

Riches loves moshing because “there’s a sense of exhilaration, excitement, community. The energy the music provides drives you into the pit,” she said.

“It’s like taking a leap of faith. It’s a transcendental experience, you feel like you’re one with the others and with the music.”

Being in the pit “is good for me because then I can see the band,” she said, laughing.

Her favourite mosh pit experience was at a Slayer concert at the Shaw Conference Centre.

“It’s a huge conference centre and the whole floor was a mosh pit. And it was condensed, so someone my size could handle themselves,” said Riches, a slim five-foot-four.

Recently, Riches won a prestigious award from the Canadian Congress on Leisure Research for her paper on moshing. She said receiving the award for a topic like hers is important because the leisure field has typically focused on normal “leisure past times.”

“This award means a lot to me because it represents how leisure is constantly expanding, progressing and being challenged,” she said.

Moshpit culture “has now been taken seriously by leisure theorists and professionals. A move in the right direction.”

Riches said moshing continues to grow and expanding into other genres of music. “She plans to continue studying mosh pits, metal music and its fans at Leeds Metropolitan University, where she hopes to do a PhD next year.

GLORIOR BELLI: POST VIDEO FOR "THEY CALL ME BLACK DEVIL"


French black metal warriors GLORIOR BELLI have posted the new video for the track "They Call Me Black Devil" from the bands anticipated new release "The Great Southern Darkness" set to be unleashed 9/27/2011 on METAL BLADE RECORDS.
FROM EARSPLIT PR:
Commented vocalist/guitarist Julien: “‘They Call Me Black Devil’ might strike one as a modest video clip and it is in fact very humble in accordance to the very essence of blues music. Yet it was done with some amusement, which is pretty unusual for a so-called black metal band. The ‘Red Fang’ allusion is a good example of how we can practice self-derision but if you pay attention to details you’ll realize that they call me black devil for a reason. More importantly, just enjoy the fucking song as it is one more glimpse of things to come with our new record.”

ITP UPDATE: ITP V.011 REVIEW, THE ART OF DANCE AND UNCOVERED SATURDAY

ITP V.011 is NOT sure if we're going to post reviews this weekend, we'll try to squeeze in as mutch as we can on Saturday, perhaps one review ULCERATE. We'll see what happens, hopefully I'll stay stable through this and if you haven't heard from ITP V.011 in a few days, we'll be recovering if this IRENE bitch is as devastating of a hurricane as she's hyped to be.

Regarding ITP V.011 Metal News features, I'm sorry for the delay, just getting acclimated with some things in my life. ITP V.011 THE ART OF DANCE and ITP V.011 UNCOVERED will be posted SATURDAY. HUMANITY IS DOOMED (DOOM METAL NEWS) will be posted on MONDAY (if hurricane IRENE doesn't screw us all) along with a (hopefully) ITP V.011 reviews schedule: SATURDAY and maybe SUNDAY.
ITP V.011 REVIEWS will be coming up this later today with a review of ULCERATE: THE DESTROYERS OF ALL. From this weekend and on, ITP REVIEWS will be on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (time, weather, sanity and stability permitting).

It's time to get to WORK on ITP V.011, long hours as it will be. HUMANITY IS DOOMED (DOOM METAL NEWS) will be posted on MONDAY (depending on the effects of hurricane IRENE).
Yes, I said I would do this late last year, and it is officially DONE. ITP's author JUST started an account for this blog on TWITTER. Again, I just started the ITP V.011 TWITTER account in JUNE, so it will take me a while to build a following and to follow others. Keep in mind I'm a NUBIE to TWITTER as I will have an secondary private TWITTER account for myself. I'm digging TWITTER already.
Do NOT add ITP V.011 if you're a phisher or SPAM BOT, because we hate that crap.

Look to the RIGHT of this journal (DISCLAIMER) for ITP V.011 anticipated weekly review schedule..
Please TWEET me your band news and tour dates @ITPV011, send me a bulletin or message to SWORDSANDGRAVES@MYSPACE or add me on MYSPACE, TWITTER or Individual Thought Patterns V.011 on FACEBOOK.
:Looks to the RIGHT of ITP V.011: I've also added ITP V.011 on a NETWORK of Extreme Metal blogs VIA FACEBOOK and BLOGSPOT entitled NETWORKED BLOGS, hit me up for an add as I don't want to lose touch with my metal compadres and I want to meet new metal heads as I really do enjoy the extreme metal bloggers on BLOGSPOT and elsewhere on the net.
All bands on MYSPACE add me on Theresa Geteles FACEBOOK and I might even start a secondary FACEBOOOK account.
So please, all friends on MYSPACE for SWORDSANDGRAVES, ITP V.011 on FACEBOOK, BLOGGED, BLOGCATALOG and technorati.com follow ITP V.011 on TWITTER.

:SNIFFLE: WE HAVE ALREADY FORGOTTEN


:sigh: The OCD lawnchair dude vows that we shall never forget, because after all he put the lawn chair, over there and now it's on the grass, damn how tragic.
East Coast aint got nothing on the West Coast or Japanese quackes and Tsunamis.
:sniffle: I'm just learning to, :sniffle: write journals entries after the little after shock as my neighbors blasting music and rattling my windows this past week, I really got confused, the :sniffle: quacke was mild in comparison to the loud rap music from car stereos and neighbors..:sniffle: WHAT's THE DIFFERENCE?
Re building the lawnchair, journal, blah, we've already forgotten.

GATHERING OF THE BESTIAL LEGION: CANCELLED BY VENUE


THE GATHERING OF THE BESTIAL LEGION set to take place 8/27/2011 at THE PROUD BIRD, LA, California has been cancelled by the venue.
FROM IRON ROOM PROMOTIONS:
Gathering of the Bestial Legion is CANCELED

The venue has canceled all events due to a shooting last Saturday night where a person was shot in the stomach.

We found out about the shooting on Monday. We contacted the venue and were assured the event was still good to go by management. On late Wednesday evening we again touched bases with the venue and they told us that their corporate office had canceled all live events. We do have a contract for the August 27th and they are refusing to honor the contract.

Unfortunately with only two days notice we can not move the event to an adequate venue.

We're working on rescheduling with the current line up for October/November 2011.

Tickets for August 27th show will be honored at the rescheduled show which will be at an established venue so we wont run into this issue ever again.
Refunds will also be available. Please be patient if you request a refund since there's a lot of you out there that bought tickets.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this will cause the bands, the fans, vendors and staff. In 10 years of booking shows in Los Angeles we have never encountered this dilemma, specially for one of our premier events.

Once again, we apologies and we will keep you all posted with any additional information.

EARTHQUAKE: IN NEW YORK? EMERGENCY ALERT EVACUATIONS


http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/23/washington-dc-earthquake-2011_n_934244.html

EQ DENIAL: I was gonna write a journal entry about it first, wait I have to take a shower first, lmao..
.@NYGovCuomo on #earthquake: "no reports of damage to buildings, bridges, roads, power grids, the Indian Point nuclear power plant."
http://twitter.com/#!/search?q=%23Earthquake
I'm sorry, (is it me?) because I've been in a bad mood, five minutes ago, I just felt this building I live in SWAY and I live Kingston, NY in the Hudson Valley area. They are reports of a small Earthquake in NYC. You know the first thing I thought, was duh, log out of my online accounts, instead of running. I got my escape route planned as when I was 13 (1983) living in NYC there was very minor EQ that woke me up, from there on in I had my escape route planned: Run out my moms apartment, run down the street, jump over the Central Park wall, and stand in the middle of the park and hope for the best. It is common knowledge that NYC straight up to the Hudson Valley area is on a fault line. I don't feel safe with Indian Point open.
The earth quake is originating from Virginia/Washington DC area. I might pack my bags a go out of state mid west, if I come back, who cares, stay away from buildings, be in open space.
That's why my spelling sucks, I was thinking damn, I can't write and concentrate because the building is swaying. East Coast EQ?
EQ's have been the talk of the year with Japan's Earthquake/Tsunami crisis and matter of fact debate over Nuclear Power plants near fualt lines (Indian Point, New York), major tornadoes in the USA this past spring, and be prepared, a class four hurricane on it's way to the USA named "Irene".
According to this Purple Strategies analysis of Radian6 data, there were 743,000 online posts mentioning "earthquake" as of 2:48 p.m. ET and 96.7% of the public conversation took place on Twitter.
#BREAKINGNEWS 5.8-mag #earthquake hits near Washington DC, felt in NY. NYC City Hall and Pentagon being evacuated

The good thing about earthquakes is once one hits, there will be many more and you won't know they are coming. #yourfucked
