The Anchor have premiered a new video for their cover of Suicide Silence‘s “Unanswered.“ This is the latest installment in the band’s “Scream It Like A Girl” series.
Atrocity have posted a teaser for their new song “Gates To Oblivion.” That track features former Morgoth singer Marc Grewe and it will appear on the band’s new album “Okkult II,” which is set to be released on July 6 via Massacre Records.
According to the New York Post, Cro-Mags founder Harley Flanagan is suing the group for allegedly using the name without permission. He claims the band was his idea when it formed it in 1981, and that they are guilty of copyright infringement, due to him apparently trademarking the “Cro-Mag” name for recording in 2010 and for merchandise in 2009 and then again in 2017. The suit goes on to say the other members took over in 2002 when “Flanagan’s first son was about to be born… and Flanagan had to stop touring to help with the baby.” Flanagan was previously arrested in July 2012 after attacking several members of the group with a knife at the CBGB Festival.

Wednesday 13 was once again asked about a Murderdolls reunion during an interview with Metal Wani. He responded with the following:
“I really just haven’t spoken with Joey really at all this year. We had gotten in touch about a year ago and just established contact again and mentioned the idea of doing something in the future — not [putting] a time on it or anything; just the idea of, ‘Would you be into it?’ And we both said, ‘Yes.’ And then I got busy doing my stuff, he was touring and putting a record out, and that’s the last I really kind of heard of it. So that’s kind of where it is. So I can’t say that it will happen, or it won’t, but there’s definitely not any plans or anything that’s changed since the last thing I must have said [in an interview].”
Last year, a Bradford, UK restaurant called Food Fusion came to Fear Factory‘s attention due to their logo, which was pretty much exactly the same as the band’s. Now, it looks like the issue has been resolved after a year and two cease and desist letters.
