FROM DEFEATED SANITY: 
we took your answers into consideration and... here you go!
“With Passages Into Deformity, fans can expect another quality release from DEFEATED SANITY. Without compromising the brutality of our sound, we have stepped it up in terms of the overall production. The album has a more old-school vibe to it, with a lot of early ‘90s inspired riffs and slams, but we made it a point to not get away from the technical and progressive stuff as well. People can definitely expect the most balanced DEFEATED SANITYalbum yet.”

Featuring guest vocals by Frank Rini (Internal Bleeding).
Our first extended tour in Russia and possably Belarus coming up next year!



DEFEATED SANITY: "Passages Into Deformity" Track Listing:
1. Initiation
2. Naraka
3. Verblendung
4. Lusting For Transcendence
5. The Purging
6. Verses Of Deformity

SOILWORK: NEW ALBUM ARTWORK AND TRACK LISTING UNVEILED

Swedish melodic death metal warriors SOILWORK have announced the art work and tracklisting for the bands anticipated new double disc release entitled
"The Living Infinite" due to be unleashed   February 27 in Asia (via license to Marquee Records), in Europe on March 1, and in North America on March 5 through Nuclear Blast Records.

FROM SOILWORK:
The Living Infinite, the ninth studio album and first dual-disc release by Swedish melodic metal maestros SOILWORK, will be unleashed on February 27 in Asia (via license to Marquee Records), in Europe on March 1, and in North America on March 5 through Nuclear Blast Records. Produced by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth, Bloodbath), the CD features artwork by Mnemic's Mircea Gabriel Eftemie.


Commented SOILWORK: "After commissioning some pretty elaborate covers for the last couple of records, we decided to try something more sober and design-oriented fo r The Living Infinite . Who better to call than the man who created the iconic Stabbing The Drama cover? Mircea Gabriel Eftemie is not only a close friend but also an incredible graphic designer. We're all stoked about his work which is different from anything SOILWORK has ever done and perfectly suits the elegant oceanic concept ofThe Living Infinite. Enjoy, folks!"

Added Mircea Gabriel Eftemie: "Seven years ago, I created the artwork for the Stabbing The Dramaalbum and I can't believe how time flies! Here we are, with sexy gray hairs, working with my friends in SOILWORK again. This time, we built the cover around a maritime concept, aiming for something direct and symbolic. I believe we achieved that quite well. From my creative deck, I salute you and say: 'Long Live The Living Infinite.'"

The Living Infinite track listing is as follows:

CD 1

01. Spectrum Of Eternity
02. Memories Confined
03. This Momentary Bliss
04. Tongue
05. The Living Infinite I
06. Let The First Wave Rise
07. Vesta
08. Realm Of The Wasted
09. The Windswept Mercy
10. Whispers And Lights

CD 2

01. Entering Aeons
02. Long Live The Misanthrope
03. Drowning With Silence
04. Antidotes In Passing
05. Leech
06. The Living Infinite II
07. Loyal Shadow
08. Rise Above The Sentiment
09. Parasite Blues
10. Owls Predict, Oracles Stand Guard

The Living Infinite hosts Justin Sullivan, lead singer of the English band New Model Army, as a guest vocalist on the track "The Windswept Mercy" and marks the recording debut of longtime SOILWORK touring guitarist David Andersson (also of Night Flight Orchestra).

ITP V.012 UPDATE: ITP V.012 REVIEW: NILE: AT THE GATE OF SETHU WILL BE POSTED TONIGHT

ITP V.012 UPDATE: Funny, when I wrote this journal entry http://spak-individualthoughtpatterns.blogspot.com/2012/11/metallica-quebec-magnetic-dvdblue-ray.html I was subconsciously thinking "Whom is Metallica's record label now?" as the press release didn't specify, and I felt so small. ITP V.012 author left the record label part BLANK on said journal entry, hoping no one would notice. Then aha, METALLICA went independent with Blackened Recordings and that answers the question.

ITP V.12's author is almost done reviewing NILE's "At The Gate Of Sethu" 12/1/2012, should be done by tonight. WORSHIP's "TERRANEAN WAKE" and  as ITP V.012 UNCOVERED will be posted 12/2/2012, sorry for the delay.




Slight similarity on CD cover art theme regarding SUFFOCATION's "Pinnacle Of Bedlam" in comparisons to METALLICA's "And Justice for All"..METALLICA's lady liberty upholding damaged justice VS. SUFFOCATION's grim reaper holding the dark flame.
METALLICA's ...And Justice for All art work:

METALLICA: LAUNCHES OWN RECORD LABEL BLACKENED RECORDINGS

California thrash metal legends METALLICA have launched the bands very own record label Blackened Recordings as the band has recovered control of their masters.
METALLICA shall unleash "Quebec Magnetic" 12/10/2012 (DVD/BLUE RAY) on Blackened Recordings.

FROM METALLICA:
We are proud to announce our own record label. Blackened Recordings is the ultimate in independence, putting us in the driver's seat of our own creative destiny. We're looking forward to making more music and getting it all out to you in our own unique way. http://www.metallica.com/news/blackened-recordings-launches.asp


We like to make it a point here not to bore you with the not-so-exciting business aspects of making and sharing music, but we're so psyched about our new adventure that we just had to tell you about it as we officially launch our very own record label, Blackened Recordings.
Some of you, who have followed along throughout the years, are aware that in 1994 we renegotiated our contract with the Warner Music Group, which resulted in a joint venture with our record company for releasing all of our recordings including long form videos. Per that agreement, as of today we have taken ownership of all of our master recordings and Blackened Recordings will be the home of all of our current albums and videos along with all future releases including the December 10 release of the "Quebec Magnetic” DVD and Blu-ray.
You may have heard us say it once or twice or a thousand times before, but it's always been about us taking control of all things 'Tallica to give you 110% on every single level every single time. Forming Blackened Recordings is the ultimate in independence, putting us in the driver's seat of our own creative destiny. We're looking forward to making more music and getting it all out to you in our own unique way.

HERE YA GO FOLKS! - Artwork for upcoming 'Pinnacle of Bedlam' courtesy of Raymond Swanland



New York death metal veterans SUFFOCATION have revealed the cover artwork for their upcoming album, Pinnacle of Bedlam. Artwork was handled this time around by artist Raymond Swanland (DEEDS OF FLESHPSYCROPTIC).

“This artwork is a perfect portrayal of our music,” commented bassist Derek Boyer. “The cover depicts lyrical content like ‘scales tip in degradation’ and ‘hooded messenger of death is now set forth, punishment for all.’ Raymond is an absolute BEAST of an artist!”

Added guitarist Guy Marchais:
“The artwork for Pinnacle brings another element to an already brutal album.  Raymond knew exactly what we were looking for and delivered!”

The record was produced by the band and tracked at Full Force Studios in New York by longtime collaborator Joe Cincotta. The mixing and mastering was handled this time around by world renowned producer/engineer Zeuss (HATEBREEDARSISSUICIDE SILENCE). Pinnacle of Bedlamwill feature 10 genre-defining-bone-crushing tracks and also marks the return of drummer Dave Culross, who played with the band previously on their Despise The Sun EP.

Pinnacle of Bedlam is tentatively scheduled for a February 2013 via Nuclear Blast in North America.



SUFFOCATION will be performing a brutally intimate show at Stamford Connecticut's Fiddler's on Saturday December 8, 2012.

This show is an extremely limited engagement, with only about 150 tickets being sold. Tickets are available at www.m


and in person at Fiddlers, 280 Shippan Avenue Stamford, CT 06902.

INCLUDED with the purchase of the ticket is an autographed picture of the band and get a chance to meet the band! All tickets are to be picked up at the venue before or at will call day of the show.
