FOO FIGHTERS FINISH WRITING NEW ALBUM, DAVE GROHL TALKS REISSUE OF NIRVANA’S ‘IN UTERO’

Image

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl recently checked in with both some good news for fans of the band: Foo Fighters have completed writing their new disc, and it should be coming out in 2014.

In a recent interview with XFM, Grohl was forthcoming with all the details, sharing, “Well, I’ll tell you, we have been in our studio writing and in the past few weeks we’ve written an album and we are going to make this album in a way that noone’s ever done before and we’re pretty excited about it.” Although the writing process has wrapped, the disc isn’t expected out until some time in 2014, according to Grohl.

In addition to the new release, Grohl also hinted about 2014 being the year of the Foo, explaining, “It’s a little ways off – it’s not ready to happen right now but I think next year is going to be a really big year for the Foo Fighters without question.”

Grohl also took some time to chat about the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s legendary final studio release ‘In Utero,’ and the upcoming reissue of the disc. “I recognize myself back then and I remember what it was like to be in the band but it’s hard to believe that that much time has gone by,” Grohl admitted.

“A lot has happened in those 20 years, when I think about ‘In Utero’ and what the world was like, what my life was like back then, it’s strange, you know. It’s kind of a blur to be honest,” Grohl said. “From the time that ‘Nevermind’ came out in September of 1991 to the time that Nirvana was over, it was really just a few years and a lot happened in those few years. I look back at this album and looking at the packaging and the old pictures and listening to songs that I haven’t heard in 20 years, all of these rarities and demos, it’s kind of a trip.”

While waiting for the new Foo Fighters release to drop, Nirvana fans can join Grohl on his trip down memory lane when the 20th anniversary edition of ‘In Utero’ is released on Sept. 24.

LORD DYING Premiere New Video on VEVO

 

LORD DYING come from Portland, Oregon, a place over abundant with purveyors of the heavy riff.  A region where the inhabitants are plagued with nerve and joint damage due to lack of sunlight. In a time where everyone is trying to out-sludge or out-doom each other LORD DYING gives something less than a fuck. They are a metal band with members of Black Elk , Portals, Le Force, and Cremains, who in their short, one year’s time as a band have shared the stage with Red Fang, Down, Unsane, Yob, Valient Thorr, Ghost and many others. 

 

The band recently finished work on a video for the song “Dreams of Mercy”.  The video was shot by Whitey McConnaughy (Red Fang, ZZ Top).  Today the video is receiving its exclusive premiere courtesy of VEVO.  Check it out HERE.

LORD DYING‘s debut Summon the Faithless is available now on Relapse Records.  The album is available in CD and LP formats which can be purchased HERE and digitally via iTunes.

Summon the Faithless can be streamed in full on LORD DYING‘s band camp page.

After a quick break from touring the US with label-mates HOWL, LORD DYING will return to the road with Valient Thorr and Ramming Speed.  These dates kick off September 9th in Denver, CO and run through September 25th in Nashville, TN. The band also has confirmed a festival appearance at Phil Anselmo’s inaugural Housecore Horror Film Fest alongside Pig Destroyer, Down, Repulsion and many others!  All dates can be found below.

 

After releasing a self-titled EP in 7″ form, the dudes kicked it up a notch, heading out on national tours with Witch Mountain followed by a long trek with label-mates Red Fang and Black Tusk.  Fast forward to 2013 and LORD DYING are poised to be the new heavyweight champions of metal.  Smashing the riffs of High On Fire into the groove of Kylesa, LORD DYINGhave delivered one of the most impressive metal debuts in a long, long time.  A young band that has matured well beyond their years into a fully developed titanic heavy metal machine, LORD DYING‘s new album is poised to be one of the best debuts of 2013.

BILL WARD Talks To Groovey.TV About Upcoming Album 'Accountable Beasts'

Image

Groovey.TV recently conducted an interview with legendary BLACK SABBATH drummer Bill Ward. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

Groovey.TV: How did the “Absence Of Corners” [Bill‘s collection of fine art created from rhythm] art project all get started?

Bill Ward: Well, the company we are doing this with is called SceneFour and they have a brief history of doing this kind of thing with other drummers, and I guess it was my turn to be asked. [laughs] It was my publicist that introduced me to the idea, and at the time, we didn’t know a whole lot about what this would mean. Because, what happened is, basically, the project has gotten bigger in many ways, that at the time we started, were invisible to us; so it has been a very interesting project in terms of what it has developed into. Originally we were approached by SceneFour. I was asked to do a drum session and for about an hour and a half I played in the dark at our rehearsal studio in Los Angeles with a bunch of cameras and lights and all sorts of strange things aimed at the drum kit. I was kind of wondering what might be going on, but they just said, “Play drums, Bill.” And that’s exactly what I did rather than wondering what they were doing. They knew what they were doing, so you know.

Groovey.TV: Did you get everything you wanted captured in these works?

Bill Ward: I wasn’t sure what I wanted in the first place. That might sound odd, but all I knew was that at that time I was playing and looking at the pictures thinking, “This is okay, this is interesting.” But not long after that they asked me to name the pictures, and that’s when things began to turn around. I caught a glimpse of the picture I call“Grief”, and I began to realize that there might be a lot more going on here than I had thought before. I called it “Grief” because when I looked at it fitted exactly how things had been for me. It was a portrait of some of the emotions, if not all of the emotions, I have been feeling from A to Z since January 2012 up until “Grief”. I didn’t realize that there was something coming out of me that became more than colored sticks making nice patterns and doing different things with me playing drums behind it. I began to see a lot of imagery in the pictures where I was actually able to write about the pictures and also name them. As I did that, as I started naming the pictures, when I started doing that that’s when I realized it was becoming quite therapeutic for me.

Groovey.TV: What are your plans for the rest of the year? What else are you working on?

Bill Ward: Right now we are doing all the promo for this project. I’m also in the studio still trying to finish my album to be which is called “Accountable Beasts”, and we are getting closer ever single week to having that getting complete. It’s been a long time coming but we are in there bit by bit a little bit by bit.

Groovey.TV: Do you have a release date yet?

Bill Ward: I would like to think that it will be out very very soon. I need twenty more days to mix or thereabouts. I could maybe do it in fifteen. Everything is at mix level, so we got about 40 percent more mix on about eight tracks. Then that’s all, we’ve done it, it’s finished.

Groovey.TV: What’s the vibe and feel of “Accountable Beasts”?

Bill Ward: It’s very heavy. It’s very fucking heavy. I play drums on 90% of the tracks. We’ve really gone balls out, you know. When I came off the last BLACK SABBATH tour, I was so ramped up, I could have gone round again one more time. I was full of energy and some of these tracks were laid down literally weeks after I came back. I was inspired to make it loud and make it hardcore, so there’s some strong tracks on “Accountable Beasts”. One of them, we got bass-drum tempos that nearly killed me. [laughs] They’re pretty fast, man. When I see people like Dave Lombardo [SLAYER], who is a buddy of mine, working around these guys, it’s like, “Man, give me some of that.” So I was very inspired after the last BLACK SABBATH tour. I thought the gigs were absolutely brilliant, I thought the band played fantastic, considering everything that was going on we played really well. It really is a stimulant from that, and that’s how the album got started. As time has gone on, and we gradually got more finances into the production, we added more things and written more songs for it. So I’m hoping it will be out quite soon.

DEICIDE: Vocals Completed For New Studio Album

Image

Florida death metal veterans DEICIDE in January entered AudioHammer Studios in Sanford, Florida with producer Jason Suecof (TRIVIUMAUGUST BURNS REDTHE BLACK DAHLIA MURDERALL THAT REMAINSWHITECHAPELDEVILDRIVER) to begin recording their new album for a late 2013 release via Century Media Records.

In a new Facebook message, the band states: “Vocals [are] done! Steve [Asheim, drums] goes in this week to complete drum edits and then the mixing process begins and then on to mastering, Century Media will be doing a press release shortly to announce the title and track listing and cover art… [We] can’t wait to unleash this beast upon you.”

Asheim recently told Decibel magazine about DEICIDE‘s working relationship with Suecof: “It’s awesome! I’ve known Jason since ’08. I had been going out to do the ORDER OF ENNEAD records with him. The last DEICIDE record we did with Mark [Lewis], but I’ve known Jason a long time, so I asked him if he was into it. He said, ‘Absolutely!’ I wanted to get one done ovith him before something happens. You never know.”

Regarding the lyrical themes covered on the new DEICIDE album, Asheim said: “[The lyrics] are typical Glen Benton. Blasphemous, brutal rhetoric. We’re going to get down and dirty this Blasphemous, brutal rhetoric. We’re going to get down and dirty this time around, so expect the lyrics to be brutal.”

According to Asheim, longtime fans will pick up on nuances inspired by the almighty “Legion” effort. “Jason wanted to capture the ‘Legion’ feel,” the drummer said. “We’re wanting Glen‘s vocals to sound more old-school. So, it’s a bit of the new with a little throwback action.”

As for DEICIDE‘s time at AudiohammerAsheim said: “It’s pretty cut-and-dried these days. I’ve known Jason a few years. I kind of know his methodology, how he works. It’s a far drive, so we’ll spend two or three nights there. Once we knock it out, we’ll end up partying. We repeat that the next day.”

“To Hell With God” sold 2,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release.

DEICIDE‘s previous CD, “Till Death Do Us Part”, opened with 2,900 copies back in May 2008.
