Metal icons DEICIDE are returning to the road this fall on their NO SALVATION TOUR 2013 – a headlining run with fellow Century Media labelmates and death metal favorites BROKEN HOPE. Also in support are DISGORGE and NECRONOMICON.

The tour launches October 2 in Atlanta, GA, and ends October 24 in Austin, TX. Highlights include a convergence with the Delaware Death Fest October 5, as well as stops in New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles. Complete dates are listed below.

DEICIDE will be touring to promote their upcoming, yet-to-be-titled studio release, due out this fall on Century Media Records. The album will be their second for Century Media, and the follow-up to ‘To Hell With God’ in 2011. DECIBEL MAGAZINE joined DEICIDE and producer Jason Suecof in the studio earlier this year, reporting: “Expect a super-brutal blast to the cranium. Longtime fans will pick up on nuances inspired from the almightyLegion effort.” With drummer Steve Asheim adding that “we’re going to get down and dirty this time around, so expect the lyrics to be brutal.”

BROKEN HOPE release ‘Omen Of Disease’ October 1 – the album will be their first studio record in nearly 15 years, and debut album for Century Media. DISGORGE will release their fifth studio album in late 2013 on Unique Leader Records, while NECRONOMICON are touring in support of ‘Rise Of The Elder Ones,’ released June 10 via Season Of Mist.

(Los Angeles, CA) – Vattnet Viskar have compiled a “Making of” video of their time in the studio recording Sky Swallower, their debut full-length album.  Sky Swallower was recorded at Universal Noise Storage under the watchful eye of producer Brett Boland, and features eight songs’ worth of masterfully executed atmospheric black metal, filtered through the members’ own hardcore pasts and imbued with doom metal’s heart-rending heaviness.  Sky Swallower is due out September 3 on Century Media Records.

BROKEN HOPE Unveil ‘OMEN OF DISEASE’ Album Artwork Album Set For October 1 Release On Century Media Records

Posted in All Metal, Artist Watch, New Music, News, Releases, Uncategorized with tags , , on July 31, 2013 by Randy

BROKEN HOPE have unveiled the album cover for their long-awaited new album ‘OMEN OF DISEASE.’ The album will be released October 1 in North America on Century Media Records, with cover artwork painted by world-renowned horror artist Wes Benscoter, best known for his work with SLAYER, CATTLE DECAPITATION, AUTOPSY and KREATOR.

BROKEN HOPE’s Jeremy Wagner comments: “Wes Benscoter is one of my favorite artists ever. In my opinion, he’s right up there with Frank Frazetta, Michael Whelan and Todd Schorr. Ever since Benscoter did our ‘REPULSIVE CONCEPTION’ and ‘LOATHING’ album covers, I’ve wanted to work with him again. I was beyond thrilled when he agreed to take on the ‘OMEN OF DISEASE’ project… and he nailed it! He’s captured the vile essence, putrid vibe, and apocalyptic, disease-laden horror of ‘OMEN OFDISEASE.’ Thank you for creating another masterpiece, Wes Benscoter.”

‘OMEN OF DISEASE’ was recorded between two studios: drums were recorded exclusively at Belle City Sound in Racine, WI, with engineer Chris Wisco (LAZARUS A.D., JUNGLE ROT, ORIGIN, GORGASM), and the remaining bulk of the album was completed at Mercenary Digital Studios in Zion, IL, with engineer Scott Creekmore (BROKEN HOPE, DIRGE WITHIN, LIVIDITY).

WARBRINGER set to release new album IV: Empires Collapse on October 15, 2013

(Los Angeles, CA) – L.A.’s own WARBRINGER, have been locked away in The Omen Room studio with producer Steve Evetts (Dillinger Escape Plan, Sepultura, Symphony X)for the past few months and are about to complete their next masterpiece, IV: Empires Collapse. The next level results of the new album are due to each band member pushing their own abilities and working together on the complex arrangements as well as the simple hooks.


IV: Empires Collapse is a collective work between the five band members and the producers. “Musically, all five of us brought something for the rest of the group to work off of and we were all a part of chiseling away at the ideas” says drummer Carlos Cruz of the recording process. “Having five band members with eclectic tastes in music from Crust Punk to Progressive music and everything in between brought about new musical directions for the material.”

The band has been documenting the recording process via social networking and capturing everything on film. Here is the latest update:
