BLOODBATH: "Due to mistakes from the US Embassy, several of the visas for BLOODBATH are severely delayed in processing. Unfortunately this date has been cancelled"


 Swedish death metal warriors BLOODBATH have been forced to cancel the bands 5/28/2017 show at THE PHOENIX CONCERT THEATER in TORONTO, ONTARIO. 








BLOODBATH  unleashed  a SPLIT with AUTOPSY,  12/15/2017 via PEACEVILLE RECORDS.

 BLOODBATH unleashed "GRAND MORBID FUNERAL", 11/14/2014 via PEACEVILLE RECORDS.





FROM INERTIA ENTERTAINMENT:
Due to mistakes from the US Embassy, several of the visas for BLOODBATH are severely delayed in processing.

Unfortunately this date has been cancelled

We are investigating the possibility of rescheduling, and will update if this will happen or if refunds will be processed within the next 96 hours

If you purchased your ticket via ticketfly, you will be automatically refunded, it will take three to five days for the monies to reappear on your credit card. If you purchased at Rotate This, refunds will be processed in person.


FROM BLOODBATH:
NORTH AMERICA TOUR DATES POSTPONED:
It’s with an immense mix of anger, frustration and sadness that we’re forced to announce the following news...
We will not be flying out tomorrow to begin our first North American tour we all so much looked forward to playing.
We’ve been rehearsing and preparing this for months and our gear and bags are packed ready by the doorstep, but sadly due to the US Immigration and Embassy making a mistake with our visas, they couldn’t fix it in time and reissue it.
We hoped we never would have to make this kind of announcement, we were still trusting they would issue it in time to the very bitter end, but now with less than 24hrs to go, we have to accept our fate, it ain’t gonna happen.
We’re so sorry for all of you who bought a ticket and made plans to come see Bloodbath!
On any kind of positive note, we WILL be rescheduling (nothing else is acceptable!) and prepare to play the tour as soon as possible. More news on refunds etc. ASAP.

Thanks-Stay Metal, Stay Brutal-\m/ -l-

DRUID LORD: STREAMING "GROTESQUE OFFERINGS" VIA BANDCAMP

Orlando, Florida death-doom metal warriors DRUID LORD, via BANDCAMP, are streaming the bands anticipated new release "GROTESQUE OFFERINGS", unleashed 1/19/2018 via HELLS HEADBANGERS RECORDS.









FROM HELLS HEADBANGERS:
HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present DRUID LORD's highly anticipated second album, Grotesque Offerings, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.
The band's first record for their new label home, Grotesque Offerings is both a consolidation and intensification of DRUID LORD's ever-considerable strengths. Eerie and utterly crushing doom/DEATH metal, DRUID LORD soak their molten creations in obscure, horror-inspired lyrics from beyond the grave. Across the 50 mysterious minutes comprising Grotesque Offerings, they evoke the haunts of old from where shadows conjure spells of gloom. DRUID LORD are grounded in the darkest and most underground death metal, of course, but take considerable influence from old horror films, particularly the atmosphere cloaking the classic movies of Lucio Fulci, Mario Bava, Dario Argento, and John Carpenter. It's a deceptively simple formula, but one that's done with masterful subtlety and a graven sense of purpose: simply, they LIVE IT, breathing deeply the true, timeless essence of supernatural horror. And that stark simplicity - the leads that linger like fog, the gutted low-end, the stunning sense of dread-inducing melody - is absolutely bewitching within these Grotesque Offerings.
DRUID LORD was formed in the scorching wastelands of Orlando, Florida in 2010 by Pete Slate (Acheron, Equinox) and Tony Blakk (Acheron, Equinox, Diabolic) and original drummer Stephen Spillers (Equinox). Orlando has always been known to be the birthplace of Mantas/Death, and DRUID LORD take pride in that fact. From the beginning, the band's intent is to create crushing songs that take inspiration from early death metal (Possessed, Necrovore, Autopsy) and the heavy riffing of '70s and '80s doom bands like Cirith Ungol, Winter, Candlemass, and Black Sabbath. "I had played for years with my own black/death band Equinox playing fast-type music, but I felt it was time for a change and get back to my roots," states Slate. "Being that we're huge old-school horror maniacs, we also wanted to combine that feeling of dread with heavy music."
DRUID LORD released their debut album, Hymns for the Wicked, in 2010. Second guitarist Ben Ross joined the band right after its release; his sick riffing added to the DRUID LORD style. Since then, the band has put out countless split CDs and 7" EPs, which have gained them worldwide attention. The band went through some various changes over the course of 2015, but with current drummer Elden Santos, DRUID LORD have found the perfect fit to complement their brand of crushing music.
Now armed with the support of HELLS HEADBANGERS, DRUID LORD are set to spread their supernatural sickness far and wide. Truly, Grotesque Offerings is the record that's been gestating within the DRUID LORD consciousness since the beginning; now, it has awoken and spreads its leathery wings of doom 'n' gloom. Haunted castles, witchcraft, the occult, the living dead, dark folklore, and cryptic stories: no ancient stone is left unturned here. With suitably macabre cover art courtesy of SLAUGHTBBATH's Daniel Corcuera, Grotesque Offerings is a mini-classic in the making - hark the arrival of the new doom/death lords!
