The Zenith Passage Recruit Ex-The Faceless Members Derek Rydquist & Brandon Giffin, Premiere “Algorithmic Salvation” Video

Muldrotha Recruit New Vocalist Alex Hofmann (Ex-Fallujah), Premiere New Song “Lungs Of The Mother”

Muldrotha, the band featuring Fallujah drummer Andrew Baird, The Zenith Passage guitarist Rob Maramonte, and Decrepit Birth bassist Sean Martinez, have recruited Alex Hofmann (ex-Fallujah) as their new vocalist. With this news, the group have also premiered a new song titled “Lungs Of The Mother.“ Hofmann commented:

“It had been over two and a half years since I’d been anywhere near a microphone when I got a text from Rob asking if i’d like to get back in the game. Getting into the studio and working with with Cody Fuentes at Rapture Recordings reminded me how much I still love singing death metal and how much fun I have doing it with friends Rob, Sean, and Andrew. ‘Lungs of the Mother’ is stripped down, focused, and relentless; a song channeling the rage over our impassivity, as mother earth is murdered in front of us.”

Decrepit Birth Drop Off The Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation, Etc. Tour

Decrepit Birth have dropped off The Black Dahlia Murder’s tour with Suffocation, Necrot, and Wormwitch, due to Matt Sotelo’s health issues. The Zenith Passage will now be added to the tour starting November 4.

Decrepit Birth commented:

“Due to the intensifying of a pre-existing medical condition, our guitarist Matt Sotelo is not able to finish the rest of the dates for the current tour with The Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation, Necrot and Wormwitch. Matt will need the next few months to recover, but is expected to make a full recovery and will be ready to tour again next year.

Since Matt is such an important member to the band and VERY integral to our live show, the band will also not be able to continue on with this tour without him. We all apologize to our fans who already bought tickets to see us. We promise to return to your area for make-up shows next year. Again, we apologize to our fans and friends who planned on seeing us during this tour.

We were having a great time… but please, still support this tour and go see the amazing bands that are on it. We’ll be back!”
