Heavy Metal News Recap: June 29th

June 29, 2011


Here is the news sent to us today:

SOCIAL NETWORKING FOR MUSICIANS: Are you a musician looking to join a band or collaborate with other musicians, either locally or internationally? Is your band searching for the perfect member? Are you a teacher seeking new students? Or a tech, recording engineer, songwriter, or session musician simply looking for work?

Launched earlier this year by Unearth guitarist Ken Susi and his brother Paul, Intonation-Network — http://www.intonation-network.com — is a free, user-friendly, location-based social networking site that allows musicians and music industry professionals to connect and collaborate online. This site does not attempt to replace other social networks, but instead allows for the consolidation of all your multimedia from other social networking sites into one place.

More news after the warp:

ALL PIGS MUST DIE: Massachusetts slaughter squad ALL PIGS MUST DIE are preparing to set their debut full-length loose on the public this Summer. Entitled God Is War, the pummeling eight-song record album has officially been set for release on August 16, 2011 via Southern Lord Recordings, and bears some of the most hate-fueled hymns of the year. Combining of old-school Swedish death metal savagery with explosive hardcore aggression and blistering, punk/d-beat energy, ALL PIGS MUST DIE have quickly become an extremely recognized and respected act in the mere year and a half since the band’s formation. Their crushing 2010-released self-titled EP was initially released on LP via the band’s own Nonbeliever Records, eventually catching the ear of Southern Lord, who almost immediately picked up the album for distribution, and signed the hard-working act for the release of their newly completed God Is War full-length. http://www.earsplitcompound.com/site/?p=2814

He will punish his bass on our upcoming album. He is mainly known for A: being a really nice guy B: playing bass with legendary Swedish punk band Charta 77.” “It will be great to finally get to record proper bass lines and work on a crushing bass sound on the upcoming album The Key To a Black Heart. We are very happy to have him on board and we welcome him to the band with a massive TRAKTOR BAS and a bloody CHEERS!” Select tracks from Blood Mortized’s 2009 self-titled debut and this year’s Bestial EP are currently streaming on the band’s http://www.myspace.com/bloodmortized
