SeeYouSpaceCowboy’s Connie Sgarbossa commented:

“We are happy to finally let this project surface, two bands, one group of friends. It was a lot of fun working with IIDF on this and putting this together, we both take influence from the same era of metalcore/post hardcore but with us each having our own personal spin on it. so I hope it serves as an engaging listen.

When we first came up with the idea of doing this split I really wanted to do a collaborative song. It was something I couldn’t really cite many bands doing, if any, that came to my mind in this sub-genre. I wanted to take it farther than just featuring on each other’s tracks – a song that combined and took crucial elements of each band and made it something that represented both of us and was cohesive. So we are all got together and fucked my apartment up but wrote this song and recorded it and shot a music video and somehow made it work.”

Zombi & Uniform Remix Each Other’s Songs For New Split Release

Zombi and Uniform have teamed up for a new split release. The effort, which can be purchased on Bandcamp, features Zombi’s remix of Uniform‘s “Shame“ and Uniform’s remix of Zombi’s “XYZT.“

Uniform’s Michael Berdan commented:

“What a wild time to be alive! As many of you know, we released ‘Shame’ this past fall. If you’ve been paying attention you might have noticed we haven’t played any shows lately. Come to think of it, hardly anyone’s played any shows for about a solid year. It feels like we’re living in a collective purgatory most of the time. As much as human interaction freaks me out, I kind of almost miss it? Almost.

Just about every musician on the planet has been effectively sidelined without touring income for about a day short of forever now. Although the vaccines are coming around and the end of the pandemic might be in sight, chances aren’t realistically good for live music to make a full comeback until 2022. In layperson’s terms: We’re all fucked.

While we’re all out of commission with no money and nothing but time on our hands, we figured we might as well make the best of a bad situation by working on a big project with some friends and hopefully making some much needed cash. Starting this Bandcamp Friday and continuing for the next few months, we’ll be teaming up with an artist we admire to remix a song from each other. First up in this remix series will be Zombi.

Zombi are an important band to us. The music that Steve and Tony make continually treads new and inspiring ground while building and improving upon the horror soundtrack template laid out by legends like Goblin, Fabio Frizzi, and Riz Ortolani. Their most recent album is called ‘2020’ and it was a major favorite of us in the Uniform camp last year. Zombi are master musicians and incredible human beings who we are honored to have as friends. Uniform have remixed Zombi’s ‘XYZT‘ and Zombi have remixed Uniform’s ‘Shame.’ We all hope you like it. We all hope you buy it. We all need the money.”

Lucifer Team Up With Kadavar For New Split Covers Release

Lucifer and Kadavar have teamed up for a new split single. The release includes Lucifer’s cover of Dust’s “Pull Away/So Many Times” and Kadavar’s cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Green Manalishi (With The Two Prong Crown).” Both tracks can be streamed below. 7-inch vinyl pressings will also be available on March 19. Lucifer’s Johanna Sadonis commented:

“Both Kadavar and Lucifer have their roots in Berlin and we go back to the founding days of both bands where we shared the same scene. With our combined love for the deep cuts of the ‘60s and ‘70s we decided to cover two of our favorite songs together for a 7″ single. We picked Marky Ramone’s criminally underrated, glorious first band Dust. It is the first time that I duet together with our guitarist Linus Björklund and we had a blast recording it! Kadavar most relevantly chose to pay homage to the late Peter Green with this classic Fleetwood Mac number. Being a huge Fleetwood Mac fan myself this is the perfect choice to round off this nugget. We are very excited about this single and hope you dig our tributes!”

KEN mode & Kowloon Walled City Cover Shallow North Dakota For Benefit Split Release

KEN mode and Kowloon Walled City have joined forces for a new split release to raise money for Shallow North Dakota‘s Tony Jacome, who is battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer. You can purchase the EP on Bandcamp and donate to Jacome via GoFundMe. The effort features an unreleased Shallow North Dakota song titled “Bearded Burly Man,” KEN mode’s covers of “Outside Dakota” and “Six Foot Foam Lover,“ and Kowloon Walled City‘s cover of “The Milkman.”

KEN mode commented:

“Two new KEN mode tracks.

So, we made a post a few weeks ago on FB and IG about our friend Tony, who plays in one of the heaviest bands of all time – Shallow North Dakota. He’s fighting stage 4 pancreatic cancer, and some people are trying to help raise funds for his fight and his family.

The music community started stepping up, and over the course of the week, we found out that Shallow North Dakota had a song from their final album, Mob Wheel, that never got released, and that they were planning to release this with our pals Kowloon Walled City as a special limited fundraising release LP.

KWC had done a SDN cover back in 2011 that also never got released. So we decided to muscle our way onto this, despite not having any material. We jammed on two SND songs on Jan 13, put down some drums, and ran with it. Jesse spent a bunch of time mixing it, Scott Evans and Sean Pearson (who engineered the other two tracks) helped provide feedback along the way, then Carl Saff was kind enough to rush out a killer mastering job on the whole batch, while our bud Sean Arsenian whipped up some art.

This whole record is one big fundraiser. We’re releasing it on bandcamp to start, with LP pre-orders and digital, and it’ll be available on various other streaming services next week. Think of it as the sickest, heaviest gofundme you’ve ever seen. The cause is heartbreaking and sucks, but we were stoked to be able to mobilize and try to do something under the circumstances.”

Pig Destroyer Planning New Album, New Live Release, Etc.

During a recent interview with Decibel, Pig Destroyer guitarist Scott Hull talked a bit about the band’s current plans. Among them are a new album, a new live album, and a split release with Cherubs.

Hull said the following:

“…We’re intentionally in our mid-period phase that a lot of bands have gone through. Napalm Death had their ‘Diatribes‘ and the three albums. We’re sort of intentionally in that, where we’re doing stuff that’s a little groovier and it’s not necessarily as extreme, but it’s something that we need to sort of get into our discography and out of our system. I’ve already told the guys we’re going to go back into something more extreme for the next record.

We’ve got a live album coming up after ‘The Octagonal Stairway‘ and then we’re going to do a split with Cherubs which is going to be more in tune with that noise rock-type stuff and then we’ll do another full-length. I have every intention at this point for it to be shorter, faster, weirder songs, sort of like the earlier stuff.”

Exhumed & Gruesome Announce New Split Release

Exhumed and Gruesome have announced a new split release titled “Twisted Horror.” The effort will be available on June 5 and it will feature three songs from Exhumed, “Rot Your Brain,“ “Buried To Die,” and “Dead, Deader, Deadest,” and two songs from Gruesome, “A Mind Decayed” and “Led Into The Dark.“ You can stream Exhumed’s “A Mind Decayed“ below:

Matt Harvey commented:

“As everyone knows, it’s a weird, surreal time for us all. So many plans have been disrupted at this point, it’s academic to even get into, but one thing that we didn’t want to postpone was this new Exhumed / Gruesome split record.

With so many of us stuck at home, we’re all depending on Death Metal to keep us sane more than ever, so we figured why wait? We’ve also been working on a US tour featuring both Exhumed and Gruesome (and some awesome special guests), and as soon as it’s realistic to announce something, we will.

In the meantime, here’s new music to warp your impressionable minds, so tune in, turn on, and rot your brain!”
