SAVAGE MESSIAH have completed recording their as-yet untitled new album, which is due to be released in early 2014.

Every note has been played, every lyric sung and now we await the finished mixes from producer Scott Atkins. We’ve had a lot of laughs making this record, and despite it being a labour-intensive effort, we had no major disruptions and the whole experience has been really enjoyable...

TMD

Southern California IMPENDING DOOM have announced their new LP called “Death Will Reign” to be due out November 5, 2013 via eOne Music. Recorded, Produced and Mixed by Will Putney at the Machine Shop, this is the band’s most ferocious material to date.

All of those elements are injected with the return of the gritty rawness found within the unpolished grind of “Nailed. Dead...
