Massacre To Release New EP “Mythos” In July

Massacre will be releasing a new EP, titled “Mythos,” on July 1. Pre-orders can be found HERE.

“Mythos” Track Listing:

01. “Behind The Serpent’s Curse” (feat. Anders Odden of Cadaver)
02. “The Dunwich Horror”
03. “The Mythos That Lovecraft Built”
04. “The Thing On The Doorstep”

The first two singles, “Behind The Serpent’s Curse” and “The Dunwich Horror,” can be found below. Vocalist Kam Lee said the following about those tracks:

“‘Behind The Serpent’s Curse‘ is lyrically inspired by and roughly based on the Lovecraft short story “The Curse Of Yig,” but is also the most metaphorically lyrical based song I’ve written in Massacre, and that is directly inspired by actual real life circumstances. It acts like a warning of sorts and is a foretelling of how it’s been like dealing with certain toxic individuals in my life. It indirectly relates to individuals whom always seem to come in pairs, and how, like serpents these people spread their venomous poison (lies).

I also had guest vocalist Anders Odden (Cadaver) join me on this particular track because lyrically it is very similar in theme to the Cadaver track “Feed The Pigs” that I made a guest appearance on. Having two distinct vocalist on a track that lyrically is based on the concepts of duality of untrusting individuals wasn’t just an after thought either, I always intended this track to be represented by two vocalist.

‘The Dunwich Horror‘ is a more traditional track in both lyrical approach and aesthetics. It’s just basically loosely based upon the Lovecraft story of the same name, but still resonates upon the core theme of twins. Two seemingly evil brother abominations brought into this world by a grotesque and hideous matriarch. I guess one could say I am suggesting that behind every pair of twin lying toxic men is always an equally conniving female antagonist. Yeah, sure, I’m simply reflecting upon my own past experiences, but it seems to be the case in a lot of similar circumstances.

Musically both tracks are laden in the same old school death metal style that can be found on ‘Resurgence.’ It’s a sound and style that carries over and shall continue to be the core essence of Massacre under my helm.”

Left To Die (Gruesome, Ex-Death, Etc.) Planning To Perform Death’s “Leprosy” In Full On Summer Tour

Left To Die, the band featuring Terry Butler (Obituary, ex-Death), Rick Rozz (ex-Death, ex-Massacre), Matt Harvey (Gruesome, Exhumed), and Gus Rios (ex-Malevolent Creation), are planning to perform Death’s “Leprosy” in its entirety on their upcoming summer tour. Dates for that trek have yet to be revealed.

Butler commented:

“After the recent Chuck [Schuldiner] tribute shows that Matt, Gus, and myself did, Rick posed the question, ‘Would anyone want to see some ‘Leprosy‘ shows?’ With a resounding ‘yes!’, the masses had spoken. Matt and Gus threw their hats in immediately and, in my opinion, they were the only real choice to bring this thing to life. Left To Die coming your way soon!!”

Rozz added:

“It’s going to be an absolute honor and pleasure to play these 34-plus-year-old songs on stage with Terry after all these years, along with the talents of Matt and Gus. It’s gonna be brutal!”

Massacre Premiere “Return Of The Corpse Grinder” Music Video

Massacre have premiered a new video for their new song “Return Of The Corpse Grinder.” You can find censored and uncensored versions of that clip below. The track is from the band’s new album “Resurgence,” which is available now.

Vocalist Kam Lee commented:

“Well for starters… we made a video for RETURN OF THE CORPSE GRINDER… but it is so disgusting and foul it may be BANNED! How fucking awesome is that?!! Total Jorg Buttgereit (NEKROMANTIK films) worship! Disgusting necrophilia and Ed Gein worship – the ONLY way to do the song justice. Anything less would have been a disservice and just wimpy!! But it’s most likely too extreme for most viewers… I feel so accomplished!!

I hope fans do get to check it out… it’s a total complete tribute to the Nekromantik films and to Ed Gein being the influence to the original songs lyrics to begin with. And the songs music is just a perfect continuation in style and form – it really brings the Corpse Grinder saga full circle. Coming out of the gate with RESURGENCE and being told that video we did for the 2nd part to the Corpse Grinder may be too extreme to air is fucking brilliant!!

I am proud of the work we did on the album, the songs and material really are the essence of O.S.D.M. style and sound, and I feel this was the best team I could gather together to make this album what it is! I realize lightening couldn’t strike twice… “From Beyond” was lightening in a bottle… and it’s not going to be beat, but I did my best to bring the proper team together to make a follow up – 30 years late – that is and proves to be the proper and correct continuation of the band MASSACRE the way it was always meant to be!”

Massacre Premiere “Whisperer In Darkness” Music Video

Massacre have premiered an age-restricted music video for their new song “Whisperer In Darkness.” This track is from the band’s new album “Resurgence,” which will be released on October 22. Frontman Kam Lee commented:

“This is the band’s love ballad. The first song we wrote together for the album, the one that brings us together in sweet harmony like honey and butter covered toast. It’s like a warm cozy cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter’s morning… with marsh-mellows even. Until the horrid eldritch tentacle reaches up out of the toilet and violently picks you up off your feet and slams you face first into the concrete floor. Broken teeth, spurting blood and gore as parts of your tongue are torn from your maw while this hideous creature crawls its way up your rectum. Like I said… a love ballad.”

Watch “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” Star Tom Hardy & Director Andy Serkis Play “Venom Symbiote Or Death Metal Band?”

During a recent segment for IGN, “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” star Tom Hardy and director Andy Serkis played a game where they had to decide if a name belonged to a symbiote or a death metal band. You can check out that clip below and watch the movie in theaters on October 1. Notably, Venom Prison were among those mentioned in the game and they tweeted the following about it:

Deeds Of Flesh To Play First U.S. Show In Over 15 Years At 2022 Maryland Deathfest

Deeds Of Flesh have been added to next year’s Maryland Deathfest. The set will serve as the band’s first U.S. show in over 15 years.

“We’re very excited to announce that we’ll be playing the Maryland Deathfest in May of 2022. It will be our first show on U.S. soil in over 15 years! The set list will contain songs from a mix of old and new albums. Let the pummeling begin!

Massacre Premiere New Song “Ruins Of R’lyeh”

Massacre have premiered a new song titled “Ruins Of R’lyeh.” This track is from the band’s new album “Resurgence,” which will be released on October 22. Frontman Kam Lee commented:

“I’m going to take you back down into the abyss! This track, ‘Ruins of R’lyeh,’ like many of the other’s on the ‘Resurgence‘ album are direct sequels to tracks off ‘From Beyond.’ With a purposeful musical connection to the track ‘Cryptic Realms,’ this new song of O.S.D.M. takes the listener back down into the depths of the darkness with a very heavy laden Lovecraftian lyrical direction loosely based on ‘The Call Of Cthulhu.’ Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn (‘In his house at R’lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.’)”

Cadaver Premiere New Video For “Feed The Pigs” Featuring Massacre’s Kam Lee

Cadaver, the band featuring Anders Odden (Satyricon) and Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth), have premiered a new video for their song “Feed The Pigs.” The track, which features Massacre frontman Kam Lee, appears on the group’s latest album “Edder & Bile.”

Anders Odden commented:

“The first song Dirk Verbeuren and I wrote as we resurrected Cadaver back in 2016 was ‘Feed The Pigs‘. At the time, I was looking for a singer and as the song pays tribute to the Florida scene (the 80s and early 90s) Kam Lee from Death and Massacre was on my shortlist to fill the role.

When he got the demo he got super inspired and wrote all the rest of the lyrics and recorded a demo within 24 hours. We were blown away and kept this original idea when we recorded the album in 2019. As the pandemic destroyed all interactions with social distancing, we thought of making a video that reflects our time.

All of us have done several COVID-19 collaborations where musicians jam across their bands and film themselves. This video is a tribute to the post-apocalyptic world we live in, enjoy.”
