LAMB OF GOD’s U.S. tour with ANTHRAX will come to a close in Los Angeles, California on February 12.
LAMB OF GOD’s latest album, “VII: Sturm Und Drang”, was released in July 2015 via Epic in the U.S. and Nuclear Blast Entertainment in all territories outside of North America. The CD was once again produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur with engineering by Wilbur, Nick Rowe and Kyle McAulay, and was recorded at NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood, California and Suburban Soul Studios in Torrance, California.
CLUTCH’s new album, “Psychic Warfare”, debuted at No. 11 on The Billboard 200 chart, having shifted 26,000 equivalent album units in the week ending October 8, 2015.
“Psychic Warfare” was released on October 2 via CLUTCH’s own label Weathermaker Music. The CD consists of 12 new tracks.
“The title ‘Psychic Warfare’ is taken from the track ‘X-Ray Visions’,” stated singer Neil Fallon. “It’s a tale about an unnamed protagonist who is forced to seek refuge in a flop house motel. He is hiding from several nefarious psychic forces, the worst of which is his own sleep-deprived paranoia.”
The four-piece version of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY — featuring Pepper Keenan on guitar and vocals — recently inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The band will enter the studio late this winter/early spring with longtime producer John Custer. Custer has recorded such C.O.C. classics as “Deliverance”, “Wiseblood”, “America’s Volume Dealer” and “In The Arms Of God”. The as-yet-untitled-album will mark CORROSION OF CONFORMITY’s studio reunion with Keenan and the Pepper-fronted version of C.O.C.’s first full-length record since 2005. A fall 2016 release is expected.
Keenan joined CORROSION OF CONFORMITY in 1990, but he did not become the band’s lead singer until the recording of “Deliverance”, which came out in 1994.
