Paracletus, the fifth full-length by French black metallers Deathspell Omega, will be out on November 9th. Paracletus is the last chapter of a trilogy which took nine years to complete, a musical and spiritual quest during which everything was put at risk. The record closes the circle to the hallucinated sound of dissonant violence and menacing splendour, exploring the depths of abjection and the corruption of the other worlds on high.
And the best thing is, you can now download a full song off Paracletus for free. Click here to check out the track "Devouring Famine".

After releasing the stunning Time Waits For No Slave album via Century Media Records in 2009, British grindcore gods Napalm Death have been busy travelling around the globe to massively promote the album live. So the band has announced that they will be embarking on a headlining tour of Europe this November, along with Macabre, Immolation and Waking The Cadaver.
Vocalist Barney Greenway checks in with the following update: "Having just returned from a string of dates in Thailand, Australia and Japan, it's a great feeling to know that Napalm is able to get out far and wide. Despite the fact that Napalm has trail-blazed across the world, I still hope next year there will be a few new places that we can set foot in where other bands just don't go. That's still a great source of excitement.
Back in February we already hinted at the new Death Breath album. In a short statement, the Swedish death metallers now confirm the release of an as-yet-untitled album likely due later this year. The band checked in as follows:
"Just letting you folks know we're still here. We have a finished album except for some vocals left to do. We've been touring most of the spring/summer with our other bands or doing albums etc. That's just the way it is. Still can't say when we will put the next Death Breath release out, but it will happen when we feel the time is right. Meanwhile listen to some Judas Priest or maybe a little Thin Lizzy."
San Francisco Bay Area thrash metallers Death Angel have announced the dates for the band's first-ever headlining tour across North America early next year.

Death Angel were recently used in a psychological study that shows liked and disliked music are equally disruptive to serial recall. The disliked music in the study was the song "Thrashers" by Death Angel.
Dr. Nick Perham explained his reasoning by using Death Angel as the "disliked" music in the study: "We needed a track that most participants would say they did not like. Having been a fan of metal music since my teens, I was pretty confident that a thrash metal song would do the trick as most people never seemed to like the music I liked. In choosing a thrash metal song, I needed a song that was heavy but also allowed the listener to hear many of the different components of the song - the acoustical variation between the successive sound items. We chose "Thrashers". Participants were only allowed to participate in the study if they disliked thrash metal as a musical genre...

Napalm Death singer Mark "Barney" Greenway and Kreator's Mille Petrozza have reportedly recorded guest appearances on Beyond Hell/Above Heaven, the fourth studio album of Volbeat.
Volbeat vocalist/guitarist Michael Poulsen told Revolver magazine the following: "We were listening to those guys when we were 14, 15 years old, and we have definitely not forgotten them for inspiring us. They know Volbeat — they like our records. We had the opportunity to talk to those guys during the last three years touring around Europe. And to actually have them on the record is really a great compliment. What they did in the studio to the Volbeat sound is amazing."
Recorded at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark with producer Jacob Hansen, Beyond Hell/Above Heaven will be released in Germany on September 10th and in most parts of Europe and UK on September 13th by Vertigo/Universal.
