What the hell is Otep Shamaya smoking?


If you happen to know, please share the info, ’cause I’ve got to try this shit… Speaking of Otep’s new album, Shamaya had the following to say:

“This album is a return to the umbra, to the darkest parts of me. I am fortifying this fortress of sound with Cyclopean masonry.

“The language on my lips is forged from forbidden tongues 12 lifetimes old. I am the heart of the gorgon, the broken mind of the lunatic, the courage of the martyr, the voice of the insurrectionist, the agog of the alchemist, I am the defiance in the aching souls waiting for the flame, I am the mighty Minotaur raging against the labyrinths of isolation and sadness.

“There is a purposeful primal spirit to this record, a coded provocation to remember our connection to the infinite, to the mysterious, to each other.”

What. The. Fuck.


Interview: Tony Campos (Prong, Possessed, Asesino)

Tony Campos looks like a mean guy but he’s actually really nice, not to forget that he’s a great bassist and vocalist.

Tony plays (and played) in lots of bands, including Ministry, Dia de Los Muertos, Attika, Possessed, Asesino, OtepBuck Satan & the 666 Shooters, Prong and the band he started his career with: Static-X.

Check out my interview with him, where we talked about Asesino, his involvement with Possessed and his epic beard after the jump.


You win some, you lose some

Napalm Death

Napalm Death have a new song! Yay! But they split with their label… Nay? I have no idea what’s going on, but apparently they’re no longer with Century Media. New album is still scheduled to be recorded in May, and the new song “Legacy Was Yesterday” will be available through Decibel magazine’s flexi disc series, for those of you stuck in dark ages using CD players and reading magazines. Everyone else, just make the jump and listen to it straight away.

But wait, there’s more!

Otep also have a new song. That’s the losing part from the post title. I checked the song preview and turned it off when I realized the were no pictures of Otep Shamaya in it, just some album artwork and crappy music.

And last, and probably least to majority of people, djent heroes Animals As Leaders found a new home. No, it’s not a dog shelter, they signed with Sumerian Records.
