07:07 - Redn1ght Lol.... I just noticed that my sort-of encyclopedia of mythologies is made in Egypt... A MIRACLE, so many books are printed in China.
04:56 - ScreamingSteelUS Yeah, it seems like Cracked has now overtaken "MAD." Moving online in 2005 was a very smart idea. I've had the chance to peruse some old "MAD"s myself, but I've been a loyal fan of Cracked for six or seven years now.
04:49 - Redn1ght No wonder then! @Screaming. (Only way I knew about MAD was because of seeing some OOLD issues in a second-hand book store and dad showed them there.)
04:43 - ScreamingSteelUS Actually, yes. Cracked began life as one of the many magazines competing for the market "MAD" created. It was the only competitor that managed to survive, and while they now have their own empire, they began as a "MAD" ripoff.
04:36 - Redn1ght Hmm.. I wonder if there's any connection between MAD magazine and Cracked.com.... Their humor is similar to each other in a way.
04:18 - Boxcar Willy Fuckin' purolator didn't notify me my package was here so now they shipped it back to the sender. Beyond pissed off.
Brazilian masters of extreme metal Krisiun are proud to announce a string of European tour dates, scheduled for this coming summer (June/July). The band has confirmed various dates that include renowned European festivals as well as some headlining club shows. Check out the complete list of tour dates below.
You would do well to remember that Krisiun released their latest album The Great Execution last year on Century Media Records but now the brutal death metallers share a new video for the track "The Will To Potency", to be enjoyed below. The video blends footage from live performances with scenes of the band in New Mexico, and was directed and produced by Tommy Jones (Death Angel, Kataklysm, Immolation, All Shall Perish, Suffocation, Ex Deo).
Greek symphonic metal demons Septicflesh have announced North American shows as part of their Conquerors Of The World Tour this October. The band will share the stage with fellow label mates Inquisition, as well as Krisiun, Melechesh and Ex Deo in what promises to be a brutal assault, which begins on October 12th in Toronto, Canada. The dates can be found below and more will be announced soon.
Brazilian thrash metallers Sepultura will embark on a North American tour this April with Death Angel, Krisiun and Havok as special guests to promote their latest output Kairos, released last year through Nuclear Blast.
"Rise And Confront", another new song from Brazilian brutal death juggernauts Krisiun is now streaming online at the band's official Facebook page. In case you missed it, the band is set to release their new album, The Great Execution, on October 31st in Europe and November 1st in North America via Century Media Records.
Brazilian death metallers Krisiun will release their new album, The Great Execution, on October 31 in Europe and November 1 in North America via Century Media Records.
The band's eighth studio CD "musically expands Krisiun trademark high-speed death metal violence with a heavily increased amount of diversity ranging from extreme tempo variations over distinct rhythm patterns to clean guitars and even Flamenco parts!" according to a press release.
Krisiun only used analog gear and instruments this time to avoid the compressed sound that so many musicians produce today. This wise decision resulted in a more organic sound, with the songs on The Great Execution possessing both warmth and rawness, which are so often lost through digital production. The low end is deeper, with drums that pound instead of bounce and guitar tones that sear rather than hiss.
Krisiun have uploaded an unreleased bonus track from 2005's Assassination record on their official MySpace page. The song is called "Down" - it's a mid tempo pace song within fast breakneck speed groove parts which deliver the best elements of Krisiun's music. A non trendy expression of a brutal assault of fast and relentless extreme metal. Check it out here.
"Sentenced Morning", the new video from Brazilian metallers Krisiun, has been made available online. The clip was filmed and edited by Juan "Punchy" Gonzalez (Morbid Angel, Terrorizer, Unholy Ghost, live sound for Nile) during the band's latest European tour.
"Sentenced Morning" comes off the band's latest album, Southern Storm, which was released on July 2008 via Century Media Records.
World Management would like to announce that death metal masters Nile are announcing their first USA tour dates in support of their new album scheduled for this fall on Nuclear Blast world wide. The tour - dubbed as Those Whom The Gods Detest Tour - commences on January 15, 2010 and will unite Nile with their long time friends Immolation and Krisiun as well as Abigail Williams and Dreaming Dead. This promises to be a great heavy package for those cold winter nights.

Brazilian metallers Krisiun's latest album, "Southern Storm", can now be streamed in its entirety at the band's MySpace Page.
Due in the US on August 5th via Century Media Records, "Southern Storm" was once again recorded at Stage One Studios in Borgentreich, Germany with producer Andy Classen (Tankard, Rotting Christ, Dew-Scented), who previously worked with the group on 1999's "Conquerors Of Armageddon" and 2006's "AssassiNation".

According to a press release, the album "offers everything the band's rabid fan base loves since day one: ferocious high-speed blasting, infectious double bass-driven grooves, razor-sharp riffs, devastating leads and a unique feel for combining catchiness with technicality. Tracks like the massive opener "Slaying Steel", "Combustion Inferno" or the band's rendition of the Sepultura classic "Refuse/Resist" are nothing but crushing death metal hits!"
