NEWS: Buckcherry, Vintage Trouble, Cattle Decipitation, and The Black Dahlia Murder release news


Buckcherry Bring It On Back

WHEN they played Belfast some time ago Buckcherry were pretty much run hard by support act Hardcore Superstar, but it seems that the LA rockers have re-grouped from a tour that saw them plugging what was in essence a 'best of set'.

The band are readying the release of their seventh studio album, 'Rock 'n' Roll' on August 21st on F-Bomb Records/Caroline/

To - err - tease y'all the band have released the first video for the song 'Bring It On Back'. What do you think? Is it a return to form?

Vintage Trouble ready release

SOME of you were fortunate to see Vintage Trouble supporting AC/DC in Dublin - and a few even seemed even to enjoy the performance.

Now the band are set to release 1 Hopeful Rd. their first album for Blue Note Records – on August 14th.

The album pre-order is underway now at http://vintagetrouble.lnk.to/HihG4. Fans who pre-order 1 Hopeful Rd. digitally will instantly receive the album opener “Run Like The River,” a rhythm and blues stomper. 

Extinction warning from death's finest

As the official deployment of 'The Anthropocene Extinction', the impending new full-length from San Diego's, Cattle Decapitation, draws ever closer, today Vice Magazine's mega music portal, Noisey, premieres the official "making of" documentary.

Tracked by Dave Otero (Allegaeon, Cephalic Carnage) at Flatline Audio in Denver, Colorado, The Anthropocene Extinction serves as Cattle Decapitation's "most sonically and thematically engrossing record to date".

On The Anthropocene Extinction we are transported forward to man's last gasps in the band's trademark "turning the tables" approach that mirrors what is happening in the Pacific Ocean: The birds and aquatic wildlife are mistaking the vast amounts of man-made plastic items for food, ingesting it and are dying in large numbers, rotting where they fall and exposing to the world what is happening to the ecosystems of the earth's oceans the most unknown and unexplored part of our planet - and the domino effect that will result… The Anthropocene Extinction.

The making of The Anthropocene Extinction mini documentary brings fans up close and personal with the band and the intricacies involved in following up their critically-lauded Monolith Of Inhumanity full-length.

Issues Noisey of the fifteen-plus minute clip, "It's an interesting look on how the band has changed their approach over the years, especially when gearing up for the new record. From Homovore to now, the band has refined their grindy sound into something dark yet crisp. This record is going to be an absolute monster, and you can even hear a little bit of it in the documentary."

The Black Dahlia Murder  new album out 18th September

THE Black Dahlia Murder are set to release their latest dark tome , 'Abysmal', on September 18th via Metal Blade Records

Abysmal is said to be "a vicious slab of unrelenting aggression" which "showcases TBDM at their very finest with a meticulous, pin-point precise rhythmic assault mixed with ferocious speed and dynamic hooks". The band also re-enlisted the services of renowned producer Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, Whitechapel) and former bass player Ryan Williams, who also produced Everblack, with the sole intent to get away from the overt sonic sterility affecting far too many contemporary metal albums.

The world's first look into Abysmal is via the track, "Vlad, Son of The Dragon," which is streaming now in its entirety at metalblade.com/tbdm.
