After undergoing heart surgery back in 2015, there have been more health issues lately for Bruce Corbitt (Warbeast / Rigor Mortis).

Bruce has been posting a series of updates from the emergency room via Facebook since late last night, and has now issued the following update about the apparent cause of his bleeding issue:

“Worst news possible. I have an esophageal tumor. In most cases, esophageal cancer is a treatable disease, but it is rarely curable.

“The overall 5-year survival rate in patients amenable to definitive treatment ranges from 5% to 30%. The occasional patient with very early disease has a better chance of survival.

“They’re about to test if already cancerous. I’m going to be here for a long time. Devastated! I’m doomed and my time is short. Love y’all!”

“It’s great to be back on the road, especially with bands that have had a profound impact on the genre and us as musicians,” states guitarist Will Walker. “We look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones, it promises to be one helluva week!”

In between tours, Graveshadow has continued working on new material for the follow-up to 2015’s :Nocturnal Resurrection,” which will be the band’s M-Theory Audio debut.

“The new album is shaping up very nicely and all that’s really left is to fine-tune arrangements and continue rehearsing,” continues Will. “We will record in July with Night Demon’s Armand [John Anthony – guitarist] and we’re very excited about the project. It’s interesting to see how the new material has developed and we can’t wait to share with everyone. Keep an eye out!”

On July 14th, Norwegian death metal crew Execration will release new album, “Return To The Void,” via Metal Blade Records. Today, the band has launched the title track as the first single/video – check it out below.

“Coming off of two double 12″ vinyl albums, the first clear goal for writing ‘Return To The Void’ was to deliver the same kind of dynamic and shifting song-writing in a more condensed to-the-point package,” comments Execration.

The band goes on to say, “As with the previous two albums, we wanted to capture the feel of a live performance, so all the basic tracks (drums, guitars, bass) were recorded live in our rehearsal studio in Oslo over the course of a weekend. Vocals, synths, and various effects where recorded the following weeks with assistance from Andreas Tylden (One Tail, One Head / Altaar). The album was then mixed and mastered by Tom Kvalsvoll of Kvalsonic Labs.”

Thematically, the album takes off into outer space, the world of dreams, and philosophic musings on time and space. The album’s seven songs and two instrumental tracks are permeated with the mysteries of the universe, both in lyrical content and concept, and in the music itself. This theme is further brought to life by the magnificent art of Zbigniew M. Bielak that adorns the front cover.

1. Eternal Recurrence
2. Hammers of Vulcan
3. Nekrocosm
4. Cephalic Transmissions
5. Blood Moon Eclipse
6. Unicursal Horrorscope
7. Through the Oculus
8. Return to the Void
9. Det Uransakelige Dyp

Launches video for title track

“Coming off of two double 12″ vinyl albums, the first clear goal for writing ‘Return to the Void‘ was to deliver the same kind of dynamic and shifting song-writing in a more condensed to-the-point package”, comments Execration. Stripping songs down to their essential core has been a driving force while writing, and it shows – there is not a wasted moment on the album. Ticking in at 42 minutes – a perfect fit for the vinyl format – the album takes the listener through a whirlwind of thrash, death, black, and even heavy metal, fast and slow parts, and the trademark Execration shifts in mood, tempo, and atmosphere.

“As with the previous two albums, we wanted to capture the feel of a live performance, so all the basic tracks (drums, guitars, bass) were recorded live in our rehearsal studio in Oslo over the course of a weekend. Vocals, synths, and various effects where recorded the following weeks with assistance from Andreas Tylden (One Tail, One Head / Altaar).

Neapolitan symphonic black metal band Scuorn premieres a new music video for “Sepeithos”, taken from the band’s latest album “Parthenope”, which was released in February through the Dusktone label. The release was recorded, mixed, and mastered at the 16th Cellar Studio in Rome by Stefano “Saul” Morabito (Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hour of Penance, etc.).

Check out now “Sepeithos” below.

Explains Scuorn:

“The song reveals the legend of gods Vesevo (the volcano Vesuvius) and Sebeto (Sepeithos in ancient greek, a river who used to divide the city of Neapolis from its older part Palepolis). The giants battled over the beautiful daughter of Neputune, Leucopetra, spreading destruction all around: Vesevo was spitting torrents of fire, while Sebeto smashed stones into a water causing it to splash and to put out the flames. Their presence and dominance were respected and honored by the first Neapolitan settlers, who handed down their lore through the centuries.”
