ITP V.018 ONLY ONE PER COFFIN: R.I.P. JEREMY INKEL (KEYBOARDIST-FRONTLINE ASSEMBLY)

JEREMY INKEL, keyboardist/programmer, producer for Canadian industrial rock legends FRONTLINE ASSEMBLY passed away 1/13/2018 due to complications of asthma.

JEREMY INKEL was also a producer/programmer for LSD (LEFT SPINE DOWN).







 FRONTLINE ASSEMBLY unleashed "ECHOGENETIC", 7/9/2013 via METROPOLIS/DEPENDENT.


FROM RHYS FULBER (PRODUCER, FRONTLINE ASSEMBLY and FEAR FACTORY):

I am stunned and sorry to say my friend and colleague in Front Line Assembly, Jeremy Inkel has passed away far too soon. I always had time and love for Jeremy, not to mention my son being very fond of him. This is difficult to process right now. My condolences to his family in this difficult time. This is a picture I took of him with my son Rex backstage at Amphi Festival 2016 in happier times.

FROM COLD WAVES FESTIVAL:
A sad day for our musical family, we've all spent a long time working with Front Line Assembly, going back to 2005, and this is some terrible news. Our thoughts and best wishes to Jeremy's family and band-mates. RIP.

The end is near...
SLAYER TO MAKE ITS EXIT WITH ONE FINAL WORLD TOUR

After making some of the most brutal, breathtakingly aggressive, all-hell’s-a-breaking-loose music ever created, playing nearly 3000 concerts in all corners of the world, receiving countless awards, gracing hundreds of magazine covers, experiencing the devastating loss of a founding brother, and even appearing on “The Tonight Show,” the age of Slayer, one of the greatest thrash/ metal/punk bands of this or any age, is coming to an end.
Slayer will do one last concert tour around the globe to thank their fans for all of their support over the years, for making the last three-and-a-half decades so packed with good times and unforgettable experiences, and will then move on.
Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament will support Slayer on the first leg, North America, of its final world tour.
Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, January 26 at 10AM local time.
Very limited Slayer onstage + meet & greet + exclusive merchandise packages will be available.

„We are grateful and immenesely honored to be a part of this already legendary tour. Let’s call it... BIG 5 or ...SICK 5 as my friend Gary Holt suggested, hm?
We are bringing our most lethal weapon to North America and you can be sure we’ll be already playing a new song! There’s no way you can miss it out! Who’s coming?”

ALTARS OF GRIEF: STREAMING NEW TRACK "VOICES OF WINTER"

Regina, Canada blackened-funeral doom warriors ALTARS OF GRIEF, via BANDCAMP, are streaming "VOICES OF WINTER", a track from the bands anticipated new release "IRIS", due to be unleashed 3/21/2018 via HYPNOTIC DIRGE RECORDS.









ALTARS OF GRIEF unleashed "OF ASH AND DYING LIGHT" (SPLIT with NACHTTERROR), via  8/10/2015 and "THIS SHAMEFUL BURDEN", 8/6/2014 both via HYPNOTIC DIRGE RECORDS.



FROM HYPNOTIC DIRGE RECORDS: 
 UM NEWS / SONG PREMIERE: Altars of Grief reveals cover artwork and releases a first song from the upcoming new album Iris
Following the acclaimed Of Ash and Dying Light split album of 2015, Canadian Prairies doom metal juggernaut Altars of Grief is back with Iris, a second full length album of devastating proportions. This new blackened doom offering introduces new levels of dynamics and textures, and while it is the more accomplished work from the Saskatchewan band to date, it also carries the darkness and light personality that Altars of Grief developed since 2013. On Iris, melancholy and storytelling reaches new depths of beauty and sorrow. Containing equal appeal and oppression in its aesthetic, this new album will raise the bar for Canadian Doom-Death.
Altars of Grief's singer Damian Smith comments: "The story of Iris is very much rooted in our prairie surroundings and deals with the struggles of addiction, sickness and religion. A father finds himself unable to connect with and care for his young daughter, Iris, who has fallen seriously ill. Spiralling deeper and deeper into his vices, and feeling rejected by Iris’ new found and unwavering faith, he gets into his car and decides to leave her behind. Somewhere along the icy road, he loses control of his vehicle and perishes. His purgatory is to watch helplessly as Iris slowly succumbs to her illness without him."
Iris will feature the art of Travis Smith [ Seempieces - The Art of Travis Smith] (Katatonia, Opeth, Anathema). The cover artwork brilliantly depicts Iris’ final moments as she kneels before the winter beset church and embraces her fate.
"Voices of Winter", a first song from Iris, is now available for streaming.
https://hypnoticdirgerecords.bandcamp.com/album/iris
Iris tracklist:
1. Isolation (9:22)
2. Desolation (6:27)
3. Iris (6:19)
4. Broken Hymns (8:10)
5. Child of Light (6:59)
6. Voices of Winter (7:28)
7. Becoming Intangible (9:24)
8. Epilogue (2:06)
(Total length 55:59)

For fans of Woods Of Ypres, Adora Vivos, October Tide and Swallow the Sun
Those who stare at the dying light will fall into Iris.

SATYRICON: ANNOUNCE (VERY LAST) SPRING 2018 NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES WITH INQUISITION

Norwegian black metal legends SATYRICON have announced the bands VERY last U.S. tour with Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. black metal warriors INQUISITION.









SATYRICON have announced FALL 2017 EUROPEAN tour dates. 








SATYRICON unleashed "DEEP CALLAETH UPON DEEP",  9/22/2017 via NAPALM RECORDS.


SATYRICON RE-ISSUED "NEMESIS DIVINA", re-unleashed 5/20/2016 via NAPALM RECORDS

FROM SATYRICON:
We are excited to announce that we will be touring in the US and Canada. As our U.S fans will have noticed, we haven't toured there in nine years. There are many reasons for that. I like America and I like Americans, but unfortunately touring there has been a difficult chapter in the history of Satyricon. I can't guarantee what the future holds, but we did not go on the last record, so I am hoping that one final headlining tour can be a good way of sharing some electric musical moments with our U.S fans, whom we love just as much as all our other fans across the world. See you all soon. - SW
