In case a new SSS album wasn't enough reason to wet your pants, none other than the legendary Mark "Barney" Greenway (if you don't know what band Barney Greenway plays in, then gtfo) will appear as a guest vocalist on the band's forthcoming new album, entitled Problems To The Answer. Greenway performs guest vocals on the tracks "The Kill Floor", "Here Comes The Neighbourhood" and "Roar".
Commented Barney Greenway on his guest appearance: "Foxy really knows his musical onions and when he had some parts for me to do, I knew it was going to be a gas. The main part had a Discharge-y feel to it, so I was sold on that instantly. Went in, shouted, went home. No fucking about. Good stuff."

Matthew "Blaps Warmonger" Hall, lead singer of New Zealand death metal band Backyard Burial, was murdered earlier this week.
A massive police hunt has been launched for the killer of a man who was the victim of a "ferocious" stabbing attack at his Wellington home. The body of Matthew John Hall, 35, was found in his Johnsonville flat about 6.15pm on Tuesday.
Police said that an autopsy showed he died of multiple stab wounds following a "ferocious" attack while he was in bed.
Tributes to Mr Hall have been left on the band's Facebook page, with one saying he was "head brewer, scholar, vocalist and best friend to many".
Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Thornton said he had "no doubt" someone had seen a person or people either enter or leave Mr Hall's property and called for any witnesses to come forward. Police were in the early stages of their enquiries and spent much of today speaking to Mr Hall's friends, family and associates, Mr Thornton said. He added: "As part of the investigation we have profiled Matthew's background, where he worked, all his friends and associates and we are taking that into consideration."

Guitarist/vocalist David Davidson recently checked in from Damage Studios with the following: "We are currently wrapping up the recording process for our third studio album and we firmly believe that this is our strongest material to date. The songs on the new release are incredibly varied and all have the own character. They range from technical thrash to groove laden death metal, there's even a song with a full horn section this time around. We can't wait for people to check it out!"
"River Of Rapture", the new video from US metallers Death Angel, can be viewed at this location. The footage was shot and edited by director Tommy Jones during the band's summer 2010 tour with Soilwork.

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.
