Dark Descent Records has released a limited edition split 7" featuring Texas-based DECREPITAPH and the long-awaited return of The Netherlands’ ETERNAL SOLSTICE. The split, which is limited to 500 copies – 400 on black vinyl and 100 on bronze – features one new song from each band and is currently available for purchase at www.darkdescent.net. This is the first new recording from ETERNAL SOLSTICE in over 13 years. The band was active in the 90s, releasing three full-lengths, the last of which was released in 1997. DECREPITAPH just released their third full-length on Razorback Records titled "Profane Doctrines Unburied". Here’s the tracklist of the split 7": DECREPITAPH – ‘Paradise In Decompostion’ and ETERNAL SOLSTICE – ‘Brutal Awakening’.
MORBID ANGEL have set "Illud Divinum Insanus" as the title of their eagerly awaited forthcoming album, which has been scheduled for a June 06, 2011 release (one day later in North America). "Illud Divinum Insanus" will be MORBID ANGEL’s eighth studio album, and the first since frontman David Vincent rejoined the band. Prior to the release of the album, a single for the song ‘Nevermore’ will be out on May 16, 2011 as a vinyl 7" and digital download. The B side will be another song from the album, remixed by Combichrist. The band has already secured a series of headline shows and festival appearances. For the exact dates, click here.
HATE ETERNAL will be touring North America this summer in support of their new album for Metal Blade Records, which is currently in the final stages of being completed. The tour also features ORIGIN, VITAL REMAINS and ABYSMAL DAWN. Erik Rutan adds, "HATE ETERNAL is super excited to be touring North America this summer with a new album and a completely awesome Death Metal package. It has been a while since we have done a headliner tour in the US, so for us to co-headline with ORIGIN and add VITAL REMAINS and ABYSMAL DAWN to the bill, totally has us amped up and psyched like you can’t imagine! We eagerly and anxiously await our time until we can get out there and play material from old to new for the Death Metal masses. Looking forward to seeing you all at the shows, and we hope you’re hungry for over the top intense sonic destruction. This is a tour you do not want to miss!" You’ll find the complete tourdates here.
