EATING_GLASS_TOUR_FLYER_A3_web

It makes a difference in effort and time, either to dig six feet deep or to build Necropolis.

VENENUM decided for the latter… and it was worth every fucking second of wait. 5 years after the successful s/t minialbum, VENENUM strike with their debut full-length entitled “Trance of Death”. The album presents VENENUM on a new level of brutality and contains new & never before heard layers of darkness. The six new compositions + introduction-theme are a grand melt of unique visions and unaltered tradition, weaved & merged into a complex unit of sacred horror. “Trance of Death” is far away from being another onedimensional tribute to the grave… it is reverence & praise, a hymn to the impending end of all things. Twisting & turning, up & down, back & forth, entangling songs and parts evolve in a constant flow.”Trance of Death” is the most serious approach towards creating a soundtrack to Death.

Join a 50 min ride through the deepest depths of ripping death, the wildest wastelands of abominable black and the darkest peaks of sinister rock. or to be plain: on the A-side they kill, on the B-side you die.

High-class songwriting skills, supremely possessed execution & performance. and a top-notch production will catapult this album to one of the most signifying & relevant releases in 2017.
Both immensely beautiful and intensely terrifying, this release will easily open the doors to the death metal pantheon for VENENUM.

REVEAL, Uppsala´s masters of terrifying insanity finally are back… back to kill decency, to raise middlefingers and to burn bridges. Say goodbye to terms like „consensus“ and „conformity“ and expect the unexpected instead. Neither fish but foul, `Flystrips´ comes like a schizo siamese twin between old THORNS and THE GERMS. While their outstanding, debutalbum `Nocturne Eyes and Teeth´ stirred the scene with a grand black death chaos which however followed certain rules and stylistic apprehension, `Flystrips´ now chokes every understandment of how this music should sound and should be played. REVEAL step on unique paths and will leave traces. Related to bands alike NO FUTURE, IN SOLITUDE and GRAVMASKIN they share members with, their visions appear bizzare, grotesque, ugly and sardonic.

Below is the press release from Earsplit compound;
San Francisco death metal horde VASTUM has declared an impending late Winter invasion of Europe, announcing a string of tour dates surrounding their performance at The Netherlands Death Fest. The announcement is joined by news of label home 20 Buck Spin’s plans to reissue the band’s primal debut album, Carnal Law, which has been out-of-print on vinyl since its 2011 release.

VASTUM’s 2015 LP, Hole Below, set a horrifying new precedent for punishing but cerebral US death metal that echoed throughout the underground. While generally acknowledged to be the band’s defining statement thus far, the earlier albums Carnal Law and Patricidal Lust are, in and of themselves, a testament to the bands mental and physical prowess from the very beginning.

Carnal Law, VASTUM’s formidable debut was issued originally on vinyl by Deific Mourning / Contagion Releasing (CD on 20 Buck Spin) in 2011 in a one-time limited version of 500 copies. Those disappeared and the album has since been unavailable on vinyl for the last four or five years. Until now that is as 20 Buck Spin presents Carnal Law on vinyl once again, with a freshly punishing remaster courtesy of Brad Boatwright at Audiosiege.

Both the progressive and regressive elements that made Hole Below such a heralded monument of death metal were evident already on Carnal Law. Tasteful, recognizable lead work not unlike the virtuosity one notes in mid-period Death or Carcass appears throughout but never overwhelms the fetid odor of vice at the album’s core. Like the paramount albums of the genre, Carnal Law makes its point quickly and resolutely, with viciousness and intent, with the now well-known dual vocal onslaught of Dan and Leila presiding over it all.

20 Buck Spin will reintroduce the world to Carnal Law on March 10th, with a limited gold vinyl variant available exclusively to US record stores via Revolver USA, and a limited multi-color variant to be available directly from 20 Buck Spin. A repress of VASTUM’s Hole Below will surface in February, including a new limited multi-color variant available directly from 20 Buck Spin. Preorders for both LPs will be posted in the coming days.

Directly in conjunction with the Carnal Law reissue, VASTUM will raid Europe on the Eight Days Of Death, a run of tour dates surrounding their performance at The Netherlands Death Fest with the likes of Gorgoroth, Bloodbath, Candlemass, Triptykon, Discharge, Repulsion, Terrorizer, Nifelheim, and countless others. The tour, handled by Killtown Bookings, also includes shows in Stockholm, Wroclaw, Zwickau, Antwerpen, Göttingen, Hamburg, and Copenhagen.

Tour announcement: BLOOD INCANTATION (us) and CRUCIAMENTUM (uk) “Interdimensional passages through Europe” 17th – 31st March 2017!

Killtown Bookings is extremely proud to present the final routing for “Interdimensional passages through Europe” w/ BLOOD INCANTATION (us) and CRUCIAMENTUM (uk)!

The tour will be the first performances for Blood Incantation in Europe! They will be accompanied by the great UK outfit Cruciamentum for the 15 date rampage across Europe from 17th – 31st March 2017!

Blood Incantation´s debut album, “Starspawn”, was released in 2016 through Dark Descent Records and received critical acclaim from music publications such as Decibel and Stereogum.

The band’s sound features “a psychedelic take on classic death metal” and melds “technicality with tectonic riffs, cavernous vocals and eerie, Dodsengel-like moments of caustic stillness.” On the band’s style, Stereogum’s Aaron Lariviere wrote: “Screaming leads cut a swath through the churn of atonal rhythm guitars, blending the bright melodicism of late-period Death with the alien tones of Morbid Angel circa Domination.

Cruciamentum signed to Profound Lore Records (Canada) in 2015 for the release of their debut full length “Charnel Passages”. The band followed up the album release with a European tour with Corpsessed (fin) and appearances at Netherlands Deathfest and Armageddon Descends III in Lithuania.

Cruciamentum are currently writing their second album which will be recorded mid/late 2017, also to be released on Profound Lore Records.

Be sure not to miss out when two of the finest contemporary death metal bands comes through town!

COME TO GRIEF to Bring World of Hurt to Roadburn 2017

Killtown Bookings is proud to present; COME TO GRIEF (us) to Bring World of Hurt to Roadburn 2017

If you like your sludge extra filthy, GRIEF are a big part of the reason why.

Formed in Boston in 1991, they’d have a dirt-covered hand in shaping the genre of sludge metal on landmark releases like 1993’s Dismal, 1994’s Come to Grief and 1996’s Miserably Ever After, and their influence would continue to resonate long after their summary 2002 compilation, Turbulent Times, put a final misanthropic stamp on their tenure.

Grief is dead, but founding guitarist Terry Savastano formed COME TO GRIEF in 2015 as a rebirth of their disgruntled, slow-crawling malevolence, and today we can officially announce that Come to Grief will pay homage to Grief’s legacy at Roadburn 2017, playing on Sunday, April 23, at Het Patronaat.

Comprised of Savastano, drummer Chuck Conlon (who played on Grief’s last album, 2000’s …And Man Will Become the Hunted), as well as guitarist/vocalist Jonathan Hébert and bassist Justin Christian (Morgion), Come to Grief is the manifestation of Grief’s repugnant sludge, and after so long, it’s time for that repugnance to finally get its due.

Come To Grief will play Roadburn Festival at Het Patronaat, Tilburg, The Netherlands on Sunday, 23 April 2017.

Killtown Bookings will be working on a 8 date European tour for COME TO GRIEF around their performance at Roadburn 2017. If you are interested in bring COME TO GRIEF to your hometown please get in touch with daniel@killtownbookings.com

ASH BORER (us) and VANUM (us) to lay waste to Roadburn 2017!

Killtown Bookings is proud to present;
ASH BORER (us) and VANUM (us) to lay waste to Roadburn 2017!

One of the most notable black metal bands to grace Roadburn in the last number of years is Ashborer. This group of American innovators has gone from one of many in the explosive Cascadian black metal scene to a band that stands head and shoulders above all others with an ever-shifting sound that grows and evolves from each record to the next.

The one constant in the band’s career has been a ceaselessly urgent and overwhelming sense of creativity and expansion. From the highly touted early material on their split with Fell Voices to their impending release, The Irrepassable Gate, Ash Borer has always chosen vibrant and evocative new territory over stagnation.

This bold group, perhaps American black metal’s most promising hope, is prepared to make its return to Roadburn as part of a European tour planned with their friends and collaborators in Vanum.

Vanum is a project that is somehow, almost unbelievably, larger than the sum of its parts, with K. Morgan of Ash Borer and M. Rekevics of Fell Voices serving as its creative core. These two musicians have long had intersecting paths, yet on their 2015 release, Realm of Sacrifice, their shared commitment to only releasing what is essential and vital became consecrated in a more permanent, enduring form.

As Vanum currently focuses on a new release due in 2017, their European tour with their brethren in Ash Borer will surely set the whole continent ablaze with their harrowing blend of icy melody and blackened atmospheric majesty.

Both Ash Borer and Vanum will lay waste to Roadburn audiences at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands on Thursday, April 20. It will be a pairing of sets that transcends the ordinary and this is not to be missed, as one of our most anticipated groupings of the festival.

Roadburn Festival 2017 will take place April 20-23 at the 013 venue, Tilburg, The Netherlands.

Killtown Bookings is currently in the process of booking a European tour for ASH BORER and VANUM based around their performance at Roadburn Festival, Vendetta Fest and other select events in April and May 2017. Get in touch with daniel@killtownbookings.com if you want to bring this great package to your hometown.
