Cephalic Carnage - New Guitarist Announced

US technical death/grind metallers Cephalic Carnage have announced the addition of guitarist Brian Hopp to the group's ranks. Brian Hopp will be replacing Zac Joe as lead guitarist.

The band stated: "So yeah yeah old news, but as most of you know Zac left the band, but what you don't know is who our new guitarist is. Please welcome Brian Hopp a.k.a. Legolas to the Cephalic family. He's got a really sweet bow and arrow, and his guitar playing is almost as good as his archery. We are extremely pleased with his work on the new record, and we think you will be too. Come tickle his chin and give him a pinch on Summer's Laughter."

Misled By Certainty, the new Cephalic Carnage's album, is due on August 31 via Relapse Records.

Exhumed - Reform After Five Year Hiatus

The news is already a tad old, but just in case you missed this moment of rejoice, gore-metallers Exhumed have reformed after a five-year hiatus!

The band will feature founding and original member Matt Harvey on guitars and vocals along with returning members Leon DelMuerte (Phobia, Muder Construct) on bass and vocals, Wes Caley (Uphill Battle) on guitars, and Danny Walker (Intronaut, Muder Construct, (Uphill Battle) on drums. The band will begin recording a new full-length and follow-up album to 2003's Anatomy Is Destiny this fall for a spring 2011 release.

Harvey recently commented on the reformation: "I'm totally fucken psyched to be making music with Exhumed again, it's been way too long. After a few years off and away from the Death Metal scene, I feel rejuvenated and ready to hack, maim and kill once again. I wanted this to be a continuation of what the band was doing and was on its way to doing, not a reunion or some weird nostalgia thing, so the first person I started talking about this with was our guitarist Wes (Caley), who has been writing some great songs for the new album, and once he got the ball rolling with Leon (DelMuerte, bass, vocals) and Danny (Walker, drums), it come together quickly and easier than ever!"

Exmortem - Call It Quits

Official press release

After more than 15 years as the driving force in Exmortem, Martin Thim have decided that its time to focus on new adventures and Exmortem is hereby history.

Exmortem have been one of the leading acts in the Danish metalscene for many years and set the bar high with albums like Berzerker Legions and latest Funeral Phantoms.

Our last album Funeral Phantoms is also viewed as the bands absolutely best release and we are proud to leave on the top of our career. With Funeral Phantoms we reached what we have always aimed for, so now it's time for something new.

I'm also extremely proud to look back and be able to say that we never repeated ourselves, each album has it's own sound and atmosphere, no album is alike. That is very satisfying as an artist!

Alex Krull states: "Fans and musicians of the band have been waiting much too long for the continuation of Calling the Rain. Now time has finally come and we just can't wait to let our fans hear and enjoy the new songs. We are incredibly happy with the result. The songs contain great rhythms, the music is sounding very special and organic, moreover, the energetic vocals together with the mythological based lyrics convey a magic atmosphere. Well, once more it's time to take blinkers off! Just listen, and it will take you away!"

We are still in love with Death Metal and are more than proud to announce the signing of Swedish Death Metal legends The Crown. They haven't lost any aggression since the early 90's and are still a guarantee for some Death Metal Holocaust!
