Debauchery - Vocalist Sacked From His Job For Being In A Death Metal Band

Debauchery vocalist Thomas "The Bloodbeast" Gurrath was sacked from his position as a philosophy trainee teacher at a high school in Stuttgart in Germany due to the "violent" content of his music. Gurrath was given the choice by the educational authorities between continuing his job teaching ethics to 14-year-old students and maintaining his career as a death metal vocalist. Gurrath, however, refused to give up Debauchery, which caused him not only to lose his job at his school, but also to be banned from teaching anywhere in the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg as long as he continues to be a member of a death metal band.

The school governors were apparently not aware of his links to death metal when they hired him. However, one supervisor at the school discovered the band's website and informed the authorities. The parents and the school officials were horrified when they saw some of the band's promotional materials which feature naked women covered with blood and sado-masochistic equipment. The officials described the band's live shows as signs of "mental disability" and decided that it is not safe for children to be in the same classroom with Gurrath.

The Nulll Collective - Sign With Aesthetic Death Records

E.M. Hearst from The NULLL Collective threw the following bit of news out through e-mail:

"International Funeral Doom Cult The NULLL Collective have signed with legendary U.K. underground label Aesthetic Death Records. The label will release the Collective's debut full-length CD De Monstris this summer.

The NULLL Collective is made up of three veteran Funeral Doom artists: E.M. Hearst (Torture Wheel, Wraith Of The Ropes, Synaptic Fracture), Stijn Van Cauter (Until Death Overtakes Me, Wijlen Wij, The Ethereal, Beyond Black Void), and S.P. White (Uncertainty Principle). The sound of the debut album is morbid, crushing, raw, monstrous, hateful Funeral Doom of a highly twisted and experimental nature.

Death Angel - New Album Due Later This Year

Hot on the heels of a busy and productive 2009, Bay Area thrash legends Death Angel have been holed up in their Oakland, California studio for the past few months writing songs for their next Nuclear Blast release, tentatively scheduled to drop in September. The band heads into Audio Hammer Studios in Sanford, Florida in March, with production genius Jason Suecof on the board, to start tracking the new record. Suecof is on the cutting edge of the current metal world having produced albums for the likes of Trivium, August Burns Red, The Black Dahlia Murder, All That Remains, White Chapel, Devildriver and many more.

Rob Cavestany, lead guitarist of Death Angel had this to say about plans for the new album: "Jason is one of my favorite producers churning out some of the sickest slabs of metal out there today. I am so stoked to have the chance to co-produce our next record with him. It's gonna be vicious! The band is on fire right now in the thick of pre-production and the new songs are crushing! We can't wait to start tracking!"

After Death - Two Members Drown In Brazil

Two members of the UK metalcore outfit After Death drowned yesterday (Thursday January 21) while swimming at the Atalaia beach in Aracaju, in the northeastern part of Brazil. 21-year-old guitarist Leon Villalba and 18-year-old bassist Timothy Kennelly, along with their bandmates, were in the middle of an extensive tour of Brazil as the support act for Master when the incident occurred.

Villalba and Kennelly were reportedly swimming at the beach around 2:30 pm when another beachgoer noticed a floating body and alerted the local lifeguard rescue team. An attempt was made to resuscitate Villalba using CPR, but he didn't respond. Kennedy's body is still missing. The search for Timothy's remains will continue on Friday with air support, since the area to be covered is very wide.

Austrian Death Machine - New Video Online

"I Need Your Clothes, Your Boots, And Your Motorcycle", the new video from Austrian Death Machine, has been made available online. The video was directed by Dave Brodsky.

Tim Lambesis comments on the video: "Arnold is proof that you can be brutal and still have fun. Metalheads can still laugh at a party right? The theme for this video can go a few different ways. I think that no matter what drastic measures Ahhnold takes, he somehow only creates more fun for all. Other people may think there is an underlying story as a Terminator love story between Ahhnold and T-One-Million. However you interpret the video is fine with me, but if you sing along loud enough Ahhnold just might show up at your house too!"
