“Roadburn is pleased to announce the addition of Italian sludge-meisters, Grime. The band channelled their utter despair, emptiness and aggression into one of the filthiest records of 2013, Deteriorate, a vile and repulsive outlook on humanity.

Roadburn will be playing host to Grime‘s negativity and hatred on Saturday 12th of April, at the Cul de Sac in Tilburg, The Netherlands, when they bring their filth-laden journey into the ugliest recesses of your depraved mind to life.

KILL-TOWN DEATH FEST 2014 – 5TH EDITION ANNOUNCED!

Killtown Bookings are proud to announce the 5th annual edition of KILL-TOWN DEATH FEST!!!

Press release:
The time has come to reveal the first announcements for the KILL-TOWN DEATH FEST 2014, the 5ft edition of this international underground Death Metal celebration!
As always, we’ve done our best to gather some of the very finest of what the current death metal scene has to offer and compile it into 4 days of absolutely ear-mangling, throat-slashing and gut-maiming death metal madness!

The dates for the Kill-Town Death Fest V 2014 will be from September 4th – 7th.

Like the previous 4 editions, the festival will kick off with a warm-up show on the Thursday at the venue Loppen, in Copenhagen’s freetown Christiania, then continue with 2 days of pure Death Metal insanity in all of its various forms at the main venue,Ungdomshuset, and then finish off with our Doom Death / Funeral Doom themed day “Gloomy Sunday” at Ungdomshuset. A way we feel perfectly closes the chapter of yet another brutal weekend of sonic ear terror.

BÖLZER to play WINGS OF METAL fest in Montreal!

KTB is proud to announce that BÖLZER will be playing WINGS OF METAL fest in Montreal, Canada on the 29th-30th August 2014!

Here is the official festival announcement:
“Wings of Metal is very excited to present you its fifth band, BÖLZER! Formed in 2008 in Switzerland (although the guitarist/vocalist KzR is from NZ), this duo plays a completely unique style of black/death metal with a crushing force. They have released a killer demo in 2012 (“Roman Acupuncture”) and an EP (“Aura”) in 2013 – producing memorable songs full of meaty yet transcending riffs. The rich rhythmic guitar tones and mountainous drums are topped with tortured lunatic growls, materializing a truly uncommon spectre of supernatural chaos. A great band which is certainly not to miss.”

Join Facebook event here: www.facebook.com/events/325680820904425

Press release from Relapse Records:
WINDHAND and INTER ARMA have today both unveiled European tour dates – many of which will take place with each other. The two bands, both hailing from Richmond, Virginia, will play Roadburn festival alongside fellow Relapse artists True Widow, -(16)-, Indian, ASG, Locrian and Lord Dying.

WINDHAND DRUMMER, Ryan Wolfe, commented: “We’re really excited to return to Europe and especially honored to be playing Roadburn and Heavy Days In Doomtown. We met some cool folks on our previous tour and looking forward to catching up with them. Plus playing with Inter Arma for a few weeks will be easy on my ears.”

INTER ARMA guitarist, Trey Dalton added: “We’ve heard nothing but pretty incredible things about how awesome it can be touring in Europe, and needless to say we’re very ready to experience that for ourselves.
“We’re most definitely looking forward to playing at Roadburn as we’re basically pals with half the bands playing, not to mention that we’ll be with some of our best friends in Windhand for the majority of the tour. That being said, I think we’re pretty excited about all of the shows. Most of us haven’t done a lot of international traveling at all so this is a pretty righteous opportunity.”

INTER ARMA will kick off their tour on April 4th in Antwerp, alongside Indian, and will meet up with WINDHAND to play Doom Over Leipzig festival, before the two bands continue on together throughout Europe. The last date the two bands will play together will be April 24, before INTER ARMA play a final show then head home and WINDHAND plough on, playing shows up through Scandinavia.

WINDHAND completed a successful European tour towards the end of 2013, in support of their latest album, Soma which was released last September. Metal Hammer said of their show in London: “It’s only in a live setting that the real power and grace of frontwoman Dorthia Cottrell’s vocals become apparent”. Their syrupy slow, downtuned doom is hooky and anthemic; propelled by Dorthia’s beautifully haunting bellow. INTER ARMA are yet to make their live debut on European soil, but their appearance will be much anticipated following rave reviews for their 2013 album, Sky Burial, which Terrorizer magazine awarded 5/5.

The full tour dates are as follows:

-(16)- (us) – Relapse Records
www.facebook.com/16Band
-(16)- is a Sludge Metal band from Los Angeles, California that is currently signed to Relapse Records. Their latest album, Deep Cuts from Dark Clouds was released in 2012.

The band -(16)- was formed in Santa Ana, Ca. by Bobby Ferry (guitar), Cris Jerue (vocals), and Jason Corley (drums) in 1992. Finding a lasting bass player was a problem until Tony Baumeister joined in 1993. The band’s first full-length album entitled “Curves That Kick” was released in 1993 on legendary artist Pushead’s label “Bacteria Sour.” Working with Pushead enabled the band to have the album released in Japan, as well as the opportunity to tour Japan, which happened in the summer of 1994. The follow-up record “Drop Out” was relased by Pessimiser/Theologian records in 1996 (although it was recorded nearly two years earlier). It received critical acclaim, but the band did not tour, and only performed locally and semi-locally.

Jason Corley was ejected from the band at the end of 1994, and replaced by Andy Hassler. Phil Vera was also added as a 2nd guitarist. The band released “Blaze of Incompetence” in 1997 (again on Pessimiser/Theologian), and did a US tour with Grief in 1998. Andy Hassler was fired shortly after the tour. R.D. Davies replaced Andy, but he overdosed on heroin 6 months later and was replaced by Mark Sanger. The next album, “Zoloft Smile,” was recorded in 1999/2000, but wasn’t released until 2002 by At A Loss Recordings. By the time the album was actually released, Bobby and Tony had both quit the band. The rest of the guys carried on with Phil being the lone guitar player. Nial McGaughey and later, Rafa Martinez (Black Cobra) handled bass duties. Phil took over vocal duties in 2003, after Cris was forced to go to rehab for alcohol and drug dependency. The band toured the US and Japan as a three-piece (Phil, Mark, Rafa), until calling it quits in 2004.

The band reunited in 2007 (Bobby, Cris, Jason, Tony) and subsequently got a deal with Relapse Records. Their Relapse debut, “Bridges to Burn,” was relased in Jan. 2009. The band parted ways with Jason Corley again (notice a pattern), and recruited Mateo Pinkerton (ex Buzzov-en, Crom) as their new drummer. They have toured Europe twice, played the Hellfest in France. In early 2012 they released their album “Deep cuts from Dark Clouds” and toured the eastern US with label mates Tombs. In 2013 Dion Thurman came in as new drummer and Barney Firks came in as a new bass player. Currently -(16)- is writing new songs, planning tours and playing regional live shows.

GRIME (it) – Forcefield Records
http://grime666.bandcamp.com
www.facebook.com/pages/Grime/209557405747608

Forged just three years ago in Trieste, Italy, GRIME spew a cogent wall of filth, decay and soul-scarring sludge metal battery. Their forthcoming offering comes in the form of the fittingly dubbed Deteriorate. The follow-up to their six-track self-titled debut released by Mordgrimm Records , which Pure Grain Audio simply called “dirty-as-fuck,” offers up a bottom heavy exhibition of severing doom derived of misanthropy, anguish and hurt feelings. Self-described as the sound of “a decaying swamp filled with trash,” GRIME’s slow, heavy groove is earnest and vicious, their mammoth guitar riffs are sharp and crusted with rust, their drums and bass hit with the unstoppable power of a violent mudslide.Deteriorate’s eight tracks were recorded at Igloo Audiofactory in Italy by Enrico Baraldi, mixed and mastered by sound wizard Billy Anderson and will see official release on LP via Forcefield Records June 11th and on Cd via Mordgrimm Records. Fans of Iron Monkey, Noothgrush, Grief and Eyehategod are demanded to pay heed.

GRIME’s ultimate goal is delivering their sonic destruction to a town near you!
