DEATH WOLF: release date of “III: Östergötland” announced, cover artwork revealed...

Swedish horror/punk metal warriors DEATH WOLF have revealed the release date, cover art and track listing for the bands anticipated new release “III: Östergötland”, due to be unleashed 12/8/2014 via
CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS.










DEATH WOLF unleashed "II Black Armored Death", in 2013 via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS.


FROM DEATH WOLF:

“Roots that can’t be cut
A belonging that can’t be erased
Older, colder 
Blood to stone
Carving a kingdom
What once was
Ruins speak to you”

“III: Östergötland”, DEATH WOLF’s third album, has been set to be released on December 8th. It will contain 12 tracks and is going to be made available on CD and limited LP as well as digital download.

Check out the recently launched brand new track “Today King, Tomorrow Dead” here:
DEATH WOLF “III: Östergötland” tracklist:
Sea Wolf
Thorntree
Östergötland
Wall Of Shields
Stegeborg
Today King, Tomorrow Dead
Horn Pt I: Marching South
Horn Pt II: Seeds Of Blood
1658
Carrion Lord
Black Sunlight
Vikbolandet
DEATH WOLF have moderately added some new elements to their deathly blackened punk rock widening the band’s musical horizon and guaranteeing some surprising twists and turns. The new track with its hard rocking main riff and ominous heaviness is a pretty fine example for DEATH WOLF’s new found variety. On “III: Östergötland” you will find the band’s by far most captivating and diverse material, ranging from the well-known Samhain-influenced punk rock to the post-apocalyptic crust of Amebix and Bathory/Celtic Frost-like blackness spiced up with a good dose of straight-forward metal.
The vinyl-only “Liksjöns Drickare” EP, that was released as a foretaste to the new album, can still be purchase at CM Distro:

BTW, ITP TEXT is CREATIVE COMMONS and you might look silly as I have bit of black list in the music industry and beyond.
From the oops file: However, some spelling, spacing and grammatical errors WILL be fixed in the next couple of weeks,

ITP V.014 has plenty more extreme metal news and whole lot more to do regarding ITP and life generally speaking, keeping busy. ITP V.014 will be very busy this week, correcting spacing, spelling and a few other grammatical stuff on ITP, so regarding over night posting, only in a make a break viral situation for a few weeks.



ITP V.014 is working on a custom mobile app, to debut soon.

..Also, ITP is avoiding the predictable mall core or trend crap out there breaking new extreme metal bands instead.

So, for the fourth consecutive year in row,  ITP has posted over 1, 000 journals entries and counting.

To celebrate ITP's (belated) 10th anniversary, 1 million hits (since OCTOBER of 2008)  on BLOGSPOT, over 7, 000 posts, and 4 years of over 1, 000 posts: Take this NEW ITP V.014 WIDGET (will situate art work soon) , and SPREAD IT UP ALL IN YOUR TWITTER, BLOGGER, MYSPACE, FACEBOOK and SOCIAL NETWORKS!!

ITP V.014 has joined a new syndicate/app, add ITP V.014 at NETVIBES, ITP V.014 will be added to more syndicates soon.
ITP V.014 NETVIBES
http://www.netvibes.com/



 If ITP V.014 and blog readers have been wondering about the state of TECHNORATI, ITP's very FIRST syndicate (since 2007), TECHNORATI has changed format to straight up advertising as all blogs are gone as TECHNORATI no longer supports bloggers.
TECHNORATI went down briefly in 2009 (?) to come back not long after.
This is just the progression (or regression depending on how you look at it) of TECHNORATI, ITP is not being singled out disproportionately, as obviously ITP is moved on to other, more socially networked syndicates.

Thank you TECHNORATI ITP readers as ITP reached the top 100 in HOCKEY (shrugs), top                   700-1, 000-2,000 in music and top 700, 500, 2,000 in other music, art and entertainment categories.

MOTIVATION REGARDING ITP V.014 GRAPHIC RE-DESIGN AND NEW TEMPLATE?
In other news, ITP's author accidently deleted all of the links on the right hand side of ITP, OOOPS, as this is due to concentration, or lack there of, regarding living in a fucked up environment of constant noise (FUCK YOU )..
THE GOOD NEWS, I have the (ITP)  links saved somewhere else, and can put post them back up at a later time. However, reposting ITP LINKS won't happen for a while, perhaps early 2015 depending on time and circumstances.
THE OTHER GOOD NEWS: Now, with in the blunder of deleting ITP LINKS some positive can come out of the negative: I can NOW perhaps redesign ITP regarding graphic design with a new template, as having to repost the links and save and repost gadgets and a few other html blah, blah, is exactly what kept me from doing it in the first place. It's time, as I've been wanting to do this for a while, in order of priority.
 Perhaps by end of 2014, early 2015, expect a complete ITP GRAPHIC REDESIGN with a new template.
I've even contemplated turning ITP into a full WEBZINE as I would need a small staff of reliable minions, perhaps in the next year or two.





YES, ITP V.014/V.015 is working on occasionally bringing back the METAL NEWS FEATURE "THE ART OF DANCE",will be revamped for 2015 as a lot of metal festivals now have their own YOU TUBE channel, as ITP needs mosh pit footage.







                                                 


                                                                                                                                                                      The comeback of  ITP V.014 NOTES FROM THE EXTREME METAL UNDERGROUND V.014 (DEATH METAL, GRIND and THRASH METAL NEWS)  MIGHT be posted by FALL  NOVEMBER of 2014.
It's coming, for real, I'm working on it, and I'm also a very good procrastinator when I have writer's block.















DAMNED IN BLACK METAL  (BLACK METAL NEWS), HUMANITY IS DOOMED (DOOM METAL NEWS) will be posted in  FALL (MID NOVEMBER) 2014 depending on time and circumstances  and will include  2014 INTERNATIONAL TOUR DATES. Also, ITP V.014 will feature the COMEBACK of ITP UNCOVERED, as something to look forward to (re-vamped version) in the new year of 2014.



A couple of points of reference as we enter into 2014 and ITP V.014.
ITP V.014 GOOGLE + now has a NEW CUSTOM URL: https://plus.google.com/+Spak-individualthoughtpatternsBlogspot/posts
ITP V.014's author is STILL working on ( a "work in progress" to be re-named ITP V.014) a NEW MYSPACE PROFILE, so re-add me (ITP V.014) after the old to new MYSPACE (as I forgot to convert until now) apocalypse:

 To kick off 2014, ITP V.014 is sporting a  brand new logo as I'm also re-sizing the logos. Feel FREE to take, steal and POST the NEW ITP V.014 LOGO and leak it all up in your social networks, website ect.

ITP V.014 NEW LOGO HTML CODES will be available from yours truly on ITP's author's FACEBOOK.

































































ITP V.014 author REALLY APPRECIATES the support of readers world wide. With a noticeable increase of readers and hits (1, 000-2,000 hits per day) YOU make it worth it!








As ITP stated last week, ITP REVIEWS (*TEXT) and NEW FEATURES depends upon TIME,  and all ITP REVIEWS, (a month after posting, sans the MUSIC) will be licensed CREATIVE COMMONS from now on.



BTW,  CREATIVE COMMONS does not waive an artists or writers rights to copy write, I could and maybe will copy write ITP V.09-V.013 reviews ect. as  CREATIVE COMMONS modifies copyright, under flexibility, for sharing info.

STEVEN WILSON (PORCUPINE TREE): SET TO UNLEASH NEW TRACK "THE OLD PEACE" (COLLABORATION WITH MARIUSZ DUDA-SET TO POEM AND DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF ALEC WILDEY)

STEVEN WILSON, producer and main man of British progressive rockers PORCUPINE TREE have issued this statement as he is set to unleash a new track "THE OLD PEACE", a collaboration with MARIUSZ DUDA, music set to a poem written by and dedicated in memory of ALEC WILDEY.



PORCUPINE TREE unleashed "The Incident" 9/14/2009  via ROADRUNNER/VICTOR records.

STEVEN WILSON unleashed "The Raven That Refused To Sing (AND OTHER STORIES)" 2/25/2013 via KSCOPE RECORDS.



FROM STEVEN WILSON (PORCUPINE TREE):
Myself and my friend Mariusz Duda - Official from Lunatic Soul - official /Riverside have teamed up to record a song together, and for a very special reason.
Alec Wildey was a young fan who for several years had been passionate about our music, actively helping out with promotion as a leading member of the Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson street teams from the tender age of 17, and setting up a street team for Mariusz in 2010. Some of you will almost certainly have met Alec, as he attended many of our concerts. If you did you will have found him to be a sensitive, extremely intelligent and articulate young man. He was a devoted and enthusiastic music listener and movie watcher, as well as a self-published poet, with a very bright future ahead of him.
Unfortunately on Christmas Eve 2013, Alec learned he had a cancer of the lymphatic system, followed shortly afterwards by an additional diagnosis of liver cancer. He began a course of aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatment, but alas to no avail. At the end of July when he understood he had only a short time left, he emailed me to ask if it was possible that his two favourite musicians could set one of his poems to music, a long held dream of his. I immediately agreed but told him I would make a deal with him - I would make it happen if he could hang on long enough to hear it. We even discussed the possibility of him playing drums on the song himself.
Unfortunately he passed away only a few weeks later on 25th August at the age of just 26, and so the idea to record the song has now become about honouring Alec’s memory and all too short life, as well as a form of tribute to him and his family. One of Alec’s poems The Old Peace has been beautifully set to music by Mariusz and sung and performed by both of us. It is now available to download from Burning Shed for a modest sum in both high resolution FLAC and mp3, with 50% of the proceeds going to the medical centre that cared for Alec during his final months, and 50% going to other cancer support group charities. We would be happy if as many people as possible paid for the official download (so please don’t share it or upload it to any other sites) in order to raise as much as we can to help others that find themselves in the same awful situation. The song will be available to download until the end of January, after which all the proceeds will be paid over to the cancer support groups.

NAPALM DEATH: SET TO UNLEASH "Apex Predator-Easy Meat"

UK grind-core pioneers NAPALM DEATH have announced the title and release date of the bands anticipated new offering "APEX PREDATOR-EASY MEAT", due to be unleashed 1/26/2015 (Europe) and 1/ 27/2015  (North America) via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS.  





NAPALM DEATH are rumored for a WINTER 2015 NORTH AMERICAN tour with VOIVOD, EXHUMED, BLACK CROWN INITIATE and IRON REAGAN as THREE DATES have leaked: Baltimore, Maryland, Portland, Oregon, and Hollywood, California. 

More info, official confirmations and tour dates TBA.  









NAPALM DEATH unleashed "Utilitarian" 2/27/2012 via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS.




FROM CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS:
British Grindcore legends Napalm Death are all set to release their 15th studio album entitled "Apex Predator - Easy Meat" on January 26th in Europe and January 27th in North America!

Check out what Barney has to say about the album title and concept:
"Sometimes you have to ponder long and hard for an album title, but following the Rana Plaza disaster of last year (collapse of a textile sweatshop building in Bangladesh), it spurred me on to try and craft an expose slave labour in the modern world (and the surrounding conditions propping it up).
Some in power like to declare that slavery is consigned to the history books. But if you look beneath the surface it is alive and well in many different forms - it just has a different face now, and exists in ways that may seem ethically ambiguous. Using the terminology of evolution particularly interests us, so in this case the 'Apex Predator' represents those who bring the slavery to bear (and capitalise from it), and the 'Easy Meat' is of therefore those who feel they have no option but to comply.
Fittingly, the music on 'Apex Predator - Easy Meat' is punishing. We feel it's more ambient, more expansive, more unsettlingly discordant than ever, and importantly, still extremely rampant at excessive speed. We hope in every respect - both musically and lyrically - this album will make your eyes burn with the harsh sonics and harsh visions of the dumping ground of globalisation."

EXODUS: FELONY CHARGE AGAINST FAN FOR POSTING LYRICS TO SOCIAL NETWORK DISMISSED


The HUFFINGTON POST reports, the case against GREENVILLE, KENTUCKY (Bay Area, California thrash legends) EXODUS fan JAMES EVANS was dismissed (of felony charges) yesterday as EVANS was arrested, jailed and charged last summer for ("terrorist threats") posting lyrics on social networking site FACEBOOK to the bands track "Class Dismissed".    









EXODUS released "BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT", unleashed 10/10/2014 (EUROPEAN UNION), 10/13/2014 (UK) and 10/14/2014 (NORTH AMERICA) via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.                                                                                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                                             Former EXODUS vocalist  STEVE "ZETRO" SOUZA has rejoined the band.









Former EXODUS vocalist PAUL BALOFF was fired in 1985, returned to the band 1991-2000, as the band split and reformed in 2001. PAUL BALOFF died of a stroke and was taken off of life support in 2/2/2002.



ROB DUKES joined EXODUS in 2005, replacing STEVE "ZETRO" SOUZA.

EXODUS guitarist GARY HOLT is also performing and recording with California thrash legends SLAYER, replacing late SLAYER guitarist JEFF HANNEMAN.











FROM EXODUS:

There has been an unfortunate situation that has come to the band’s attention. A fan in Greenville, Kentucky has been arrested and is currently being jailed for alleged terroristic threats for posting the lyrics to the EXODUS song ‘Class Dismissed’.

The band EXODUS does not promote or condone terrorists, threats or bullying. That being said, the band is somewhat baffled by the fact that this man being charged for what seems against his first amendment rights of Freedom of Speech.

Follow this link for more information on the arrest:http://www.14news.com/story/26431395/lyrics-posted-on-facebook-lead-to-arrest-of-muhlenberg-co-man

“The idea that an individual in this great country of ours could be arrested for simply posting lyrics to a song is something I never believed could happen in a free society,” states EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt. “James Evans was simply posting lyrics to a band he likes on Facebook, and he was locked up for it. The song ‘Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer)’ was written as a view through the eyes of a madman and in no way endorses that kind of fucked up behavior. It was the Virginia Tech massacre perpetrated by Seung-Hui Cho that was the subject and inspiration to write the song, one in which we put the brakes on playing it live after the Sandy Hook shooting, as we did not want to seem insensitive.”

Gary continues, “As some of us in EXODUS are parents, of course these things hit close to home, it’s every parent’s worst fear. These moments are the stuff of nightmares, and life, as well as music, isn’t always pretty. But when we start to overreact to things like lyrics by any band, including EXODUS, and start arresting people, we are caving in to paranoia and are well on our way to becoming an Orwellian society.”

Look for the forthcoming EXODUS album, entitled Blood In, Blood Out, coming October 14, 2014 via Nuclear Blast Records. Also, catch EXODUS on the road with Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies this fall.

ASCENSION: SET TO UNLEASH "THE DEAD OF THE WORLD"

German black metal warriors ASCENSION have revealed the track listing and cover art for the bands anticipated new release "THE DEAD OF THE WORLD", due to be unleashed 12/24/2014 via WORLD TERROR COMMITTEE and via SEASON OF MIST (NORTH AMERICA).








ASCENSION are also set to precede "THE DEAD OF THE WORLD" with the release of "Deathless Light" (EP), due to be unleashed 10/31/2014 via WORLD TERROR COMMITTEE.

ASCENSION released "Consolamentum" 12/24/2010 via WORLD TERROR COMMITTEE.





FROM SEASON OF MIST:
Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of occult black metal tyrants Ascension for North America. The band will release a new album, titled 'The Dead of the World' on December 24th.
The track list and Erik Danielsson (WATAIN) designed album art for 'The Dead of the World' can be seen below:

FROM WORLD TERROR COMMITTEE:
 At long last, German black metal tyrants Ascension unveil their highly anticipated second album, The Dead of the World, set for European release on December 24th via W.T.C. Productions (Season of Mist will handle the North American release). Previewed by the Deathless Light EP, Ascension's The Dead of the World is a grandiose work of bold creativity and boundless imagination, of brilliant illumination and obsidian depth, all under the banner of orthodox black metal. The band's debut album, 2010's Consolamentum, became a classic in the underground not long after its release; it evinced a wealth of maturity in composition and execution for such a new band. Here, the quintet eclipse that accomplishment with a seven-song salvo that's the epitome of Album Experience. Every part is where it needs to be; every song flows from the other; there is a whole, and it is a black HOLE. From its innermost depths, Ascension drive onward and outward, their control of dynamics startling for mere "black metal," their passion, fervor, and professionalism far beyond those who supposedly uphold that genre. Joining Ascension in their peerless endeavor here are The Magus (Necromantia, Thou Art Lord, Principality of Hell) and Mors Dalos Ra (Necros Christos), who both respectively provide guest vocals on The Dead of the World. Black Metal may be dead for all intents and purposes, but not for Ascension, for they show you The Dead of the World.

Tracklist

1. The Silence of Abel
2. Death's Golden Temple
3. Black Ember
4. Unlocking Tiamat
5. Deathless Light
6. The Dark Tomb Shines
7. Mortui Mundi
More details to be announced in due time.

FROM ASCENSION: 



Hearken!

In celebration of the cold and dark months ahead, the time has come to announce Ascension´s first audial sign of Death in four years. On Samhain of year 14, "Deathless Light" shall shine upon thee. Released by the World Terror Committee (www.w-t-c.org), the 2-song EP features the title track which is a song from the new album and as such a foreboding of the things to come at the end of the year. Furthermore the track "Garden of Stone" was recorded exclusively for this release.
The EP will be available as of October, 31st as 12“ LP, CD and Digital although the vinyl version might take a little bit longer due to the generally increased manufacturing times. The front cover, drawn by David Glomba, can be seen here.
We hereby proudly announce, that Ascension is heading out for it´s first tour ever.
Join us...in Death!
