Vitriol will be digitally releasing a partially re-recorded version of their demo EP “Antichrist” on August 13. The effort, which has also been remixed and remastered, will also be available on vinyl and cassette at a later date. Vcalist Kyle Rasmussen commented:

“Vitriol‘s first introduction to the public was in 2012 by way of a three song digital release entitled Antichrist EP. Nearly a decade later we have decided to reach back and offer our most formative material with a proper look and sound. Remixed, remastered, and featuring newly recorded vocals, our goal was to let our fans see what we were through the lens of what we are now.”

Ingested To Release Re-Recorded Version Of “The Surreption” In July, Premiere “Manifesting Obscenity” Video

Ingested will be releasing a re-recorded version of their 2011 album “The Surreption” on July 30. You can find a video for the re-recorded version of “Manifesting Obscenity” from the effort below:

Vocalist Jason Evans commented:

“As some of you may know, the 10th anniversary of our second album ‘The Surreption‘ is fast approaching, and what better way to celebrate than to unleash this beast upon the world once more? That’s right, we have been holed up in the Ingested lockdown bunker hard at work to bring to you our second album the way we always wanted it to be.

This isn’t a remix, or a remaster, this is a complete re-recording, a reimagining of an important, but often forgotten step in the path of Ingested. We never got to do a music video for the original release of ‘The Surreption‘ and we think that’s a shame, so feast your eyes and ears on our video for ‘Manifesting Obscenity‘, and fire up the pre-orders for ‘The Surreption II‘, because this bad motherfucker is available July 30th on Unique Leader Records.”

Five Finger Death Punch Planning New Album And Re-Recorded Version Of “The Way Of The Fist”

It looks like Five Finger Death Punch are planning to hit the studio to work on a new record and a re-recorded version of their 2007 debut album “The Way Of The Fist.” Guitarist Zoltan Bathory recently revealed the news on Facebook:

“…We are heading to the studio to begin recording our new album (due in 2022) – and later this summer we are also planning to re-record our 1st album – The Way Of The Fist – (which turns 15 years old next year) It was a truly self produced DIY album, mostly recorded in my living room, so we thought it would be really interesting to hear it with a proper big production🤘”

The Convalescence Release Re-Recorded Version Of “The Human Disease”

The Convalescence have shared a re-recorded version of their song “The Human Disease.” The track, which is called “The Human Disease 2.0,“ was released as part of the band’s 10th anniversary celebration.

Vocalist Keith Wampler commented:

“We wanted to do something special to celebrate The Convalescence being a band for 10 years. We have the tour coming up later this Summer but we wanted something more than that. We decided to go back and re-record ‘The Human Disease‘ from our 2014 release ‘The Process‘ with the current band members.

We picked this song because it was the first single released that got some real attention and started drawing in a whole new fan base, To us it represents a crucial turning point in this band’s history. People have been asking us to play it again live, some asked us to remake it, and this seemed like the perfect time to do so.

We recorded the song with producer John Burke. John was the producer who recorded the song the first time around as well as a lot of our other music so it was the obvious choice to go back and work with him on this track. Christian Donaldson mixed and mastered this version, and we chose the release date of May 14th because it is the 10 Year Anniversary of our 1st ever live performance.”

“‘Leveler‘ is a record we’ve always been proud of, and we wanted to do something special for its ten-year anniversary. We’ve done some cool remix projects for previous albums when they’ve turned 10, but with ‘Leveler‘, we decided to kick things up a notch. COVID has kept us off the road for such a long time that we found ourselves with a rare opportunity to take on this unique project.

We dove into this record and dissected the songs, rewriting solos, changing the tunings, adding new textures and elements, and got a few of our friends to do some guest spots as well. Our longtime producers Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland handled the recording/mixing and helped us take ‘Leveler‘ to new sonic heights. I think this is the best-sounding ABR record we’ve ever made, and it’s going to allow people to experience the record in a whole new way. I can’t wait to share this with everyone.”

Diamond Head Release 2020 Version Of “Am I Evil?”

Diamond Head have premiered a new video for the 2020 version of “Am I Evil?” The track is from the new re-recorded version of “Lightning To The Nations,” which will be released on November 20.

Brian Tatler commented:

“‘Am I Evil?’ is one of the songs that Metallica covered. I got a call from Lars Ulrich on September 20th, 1986 to say that Metallica were playing that evening as part of the ‘Master Of Puppets’ tour at the Birmingham Odeon which was the best venue in the Midlands to see bands. Lars invited me along, so I caught the number nine bus, picked up my backstage pass, and was shown into Metallica’s dressing room. I was then introduced to James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett and Cliff Burton. Lars suggested that I get up and play ‘Am I Evil?’ on stage with them in the encore. I, of course, agreed and, after watching their amazing set for an hour, I went backstage again where the guitar techs strapped James’s white Flying V onto me. Then Lars ran to the center vocal mic and introduced me as ‘the guy who wrote this next song!’ The five of us played ‘Am I Evil?’ up to the fast section then Metallica went into ‘Damage, Inc.’ and I scarpered off stage. It was a brilliant experience!”

He also added:

“It’s been a really great experience to revisit and re-record ‘Am I Evil?’ and the ‘Lightning To The Nations’ album for 2020. It’s also about time that Diamond Head’s biggest song finally has a video. Thank you to Andy Pilkington [Very Metal Art] for this mini epic.”
