    British extreme metal legends NAPALM DEATH have entered Parlour Studios in Kettering, Northamptonshire, England to begin recording their new album for an early 2018 release. Helming the sessions once again is producer Russ Russell, who has previously worked with THE HAUNTED and DIMMU BORGIR, among others.A few photos from the studio can be found at NapalmDeath.org.In a recent interview with Metal Wani's Jake Patton, NAPALM DEATH vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway spoke about how the band's musical approach has evolved over the years as it has become more commercially successful."Our way of approaching things is always the same," he said. "Every time we make an album or such, the thought in our minds is not, 'How can we finally put our button on the secret to commercial success?' [Laughs] It doesn't roll that way with us. We simply try and make a combination of the best and most extreme that we feel we can at the time. Now, I think the one thing I would say is that in terms of making a good blend of the very traditional NAPALM stuff — the fast stuff — to the more skewed kind of NAPALM stuff, which is that, if you like, post-punk noise sort of very avantgarde stuff mixed in, I think we're starting to get better and better with that in terms of the mix; it's quite seamless now, in my opinion. And that side of things is what has seemed to make more and more people interested. Because I know a lot of bands' record sales are decreasing, but ours are going up."Greenway also addressed the status of NAPALM DEATH guitarist Mitch Harris, who has been taking a leave of absence from the band since late 2014 to focus on his family life."Mitch is still a member of the band as such," Barney explained. "This is a situation that we're still working on now. As is quite obvious to people, Mitch hasn't been able to tour with us. I've gotta be honest — we don't know whether that situation is gonna change or not; we just don't. But we're not people to do anything drastic with that situation. We don't see things as irretrievable. So we are working on it right now. Mitch is still a member of the band. He most likely will record with us on the next album as things are; in fact, I think it's pretty dead set that he will. And that's it, really. There's nothing sinister behind it. It's a set of circumstances that have kind of worked out that way."Harris took an indefinite break in the fall of 2014 to tend to a family situation and Wikipedia initially wrongly scrubbed him from the band roster. He has since been temporarily replaced by John Cooke (CORRUPT MORAL ALTAR).NAPALM DEATH's last album, "Apex Predator - Easy Meat", was released in January 2015 via Century Media Records.Photo courtesy of NAPALM DEATH's Facebook page

    THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER To Release 'Nightbringers' Album In October; Watch Video For Title Track THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER will release its eighth full-length album, "Nightbringers", on October 6 via Metal Blade Records.The official music video for the disc's title track can be viewed below.Rather than meticulously plan things out or stick rigidly to any kind of template, when it comes to writing, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER prefer to let things happen organically. In the hands of guitarist Brian Eschbach — who co-founded the band with frontman Trevor Strnad in 2001 — and new recruit Brandon Ellis (ARSIS, ex-CANNABIS CORPSE), "Nightbringers" is rich with dynamic riffs that are at once fresh and classic THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, resulting in a collection that shifts through many moods and effortlessly incorporates various elements of extreme metal. While Strnad explores a variety of themes and ideas with his lyrics, they are united by the album's title, which embraces a tenet that has been central to THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER's output since the very beginning."Death metal and nighttime are synonymous to me," Strnad explains. "We are the rulers of the darkened hours that the Christian good fears. A lot of archaic ideas that are still upheld — such as marriage and monogamy — came from Christianity, whether people want to acknowledge it or not, and to me, death metal has always been bucking that. It's 'being-the-villain music', because we're the enemy of Christianity, the enemy of all that is good and traditional. Death metal is for free thinkers, it's for showing people the path to inner strength and operating on your own will, instead of being told what to do and living in fear, and songs like the title track and 'Kings Of The Nightworld' are about leading a legion of awakened minds into battle.""Nightbringers" track listing:01. Widowmaker02. Of God And Serpent, Of Spectre And Snake03. Matriarch04. Nightbringers05. Jars06. Kings Of The Nightworld07. Catacomb Hecatomb08. As Good As Dead09. The Lonely Deceased THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER is currently co-headlining "The Summer Slaughter Tour" with DYING FETUS, OCEANO, ORIGIN, SLAUGHTER TO PREVAIL, RINGS OF SATURN, BETRAYING THE MARTYRS and LORNA SHORE as support. This USA trek sees THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER performing "Nocturnal" in its entirety, for the album's tenth anniversary.

    PROPHETS OF RAGE Release Video For 'Radical Eyes' The official D.J. Sing-directed video for "Radical Eyes", a new song from PROPHETS OF RAGE, the supergroup featuring members of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, PUBLIC ENEMY and CYPRESS HILL, can be seen below. The track is taken from PROPHETS OF RAGE's self-titled debut album, which will be released on September 15 via Fantasy Records. The disc was recorded with legendary producer Brendan O'Brien who has done notable work with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and AUDIOSLAVE."The Western world has created biased structures and stereotypes. Opposing viewpoints and movements are seen as radical rather than diversity," says Chuck D. about the song. "'Radical Eyes' is the lens everything is viewed through, any life movement in opposition is considered radicalized."PROPHETS OF RAGE came together during 2016's tumultuous election to combat the coming storm, wherever it may lead. Following last summer's inaugural tour, the group knew it could evolve from protest performance art with a tactical mission, to a stand-alone entity with creative ideas all its own. Holed up with longtime RAGE collaborator, producer Brendan O'Brien, the band fused the diverse styles, sonic firepower and hard-hitting social consciousness of their previous work, into an inventive and compelling new musical statement, completing the album's twelve tracks in just over a month of recording.At its core, PROPHETS OF RAGE functions not only on a love of music, but a deep belief in its power as a tool, and a weapon. Woven into the band's DNA are influences as varied as THE CLASH, KRS-One and Johnny Cash, as well as the undeniable ideals and aesthetics of its predecessors: PUBLIC ENEMY's frenzied, racing textures, RAGE's jaw-melting riffs, CYPRESS HILL's manically playful party energy."The music is the passport to the world," Chuck D. says, describing the unique bond the group shares. "It's not always a given to have members who want to go where few have gone.""Prophets Of Rage" track listing:01. Radical Eyes02. Unfuck The World03. Legalize Me04. Living On The 11005. The Counteroffensive06. Hail To The Chief07. Take Me Higher08. Strength In Numbers09. Fired A Shot10. Who Owns Who11. Hands Up12. SmashitMorello told Billboard that the members of PROPHETS OF RAGE have set a very high bar for the material that they want to release. "The goal is a simple one: The music has to be devastating," he explained. "In all these interviews, we talk a lot about the politics, but the cornerstone is that the music has to be devastating and we have to not just be competitive with our legacies, but in [2017], it has to be something that goes beyond that and is very authentic, unapologetic and contemporary."PROPHETS OF RAGE made their live debut in May 2016 in Los Angeles.
