New York death metal pioneers Suffocation have announced dates for their final North American tour with original vocalist Frank Mullen. This historic trek will take place this upcoming October / November and see the band joined by misanthropic gore grinders Cattle Decapitation, Brazilian death metal legends Krisiun, and Swedish tech-death sensations Soreption.

Mullen went on to issue the following statement:
“Hello my friends – so this is it, after 30 years of being a part of this amazing band, which I have had the opportunity to tour the world and bring our music to the sickest fans on the planet, it has come to this time – I bid you a farewell.

“I would like to thank first and foremost, all of my brothers in Suffocation who I have shared the stage with over the years. We have had the sickest of times on the road, and recorded some of the sickest fucking music the planet has ever heard. Secondly I want to thank ALL OUR FANS AND FRIENDS WORLDWIDE, who have helped make this journey possible by supporting us unconditionally. None of this would have been possible without you. So in closing, I will miss you all. This has been the craziest ride of my life and I would not change a thing! Until we meet up again take care, stay brutal and I look forward to the next chapter.

“But before I take my final step off the stage, to give back to all of you who have supported, me and the boys are going to head out on the DEATH CHOPPING NORTH AMERICA tour. Along with some insane support acts including Cattle Decapitation, Krisiun, and Soreption! I hope to see you all for one last ride across North America. Stay brutal.”

On September 7th, Metal Blade Records will release Cruel Magic, the new album by English NWOBHM legends Satan! For a preview of Cruel Magic, please visit: youtube.com/watch?v=3YVFKzSgT4I to stream the 2nd single, “Into The Mouth Of Eternity”!

Satan comments about the new single: “Playing this song in rehearsals is such a rollercoaster, and it’s obvious already that it’s going to be part of the Satan live show for some time to come. This song has been in the making since 2014 and we are so excited to finally unleash it on the new record. It’s our album opener, so turn up the volume and hold on!”

Afterwards, head over to metalblade.com/satan, where you can watch the video for the first single, “The Doomsday Clock”, as well as pre-order Cruel Magic in the following formats:


–ltd. Boxset (incl. Digipak-CD, excl. bonus-CD, excl. dead gold-marbled vinyl w/excl. bonus-LP, 75×75 cm flag, circular 12″ back patch, five A4 art prints, A4 photo card, numbered certificate)
–Digipak-CD (EU exclusive)
–CD
–180g black vinyl
–clear vinyl (limited to 500 copies – EU exclusive)
–red/black-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – EU exclusive)
–water blue-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–steel grey-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – US exclusive)
–yellow/ochre-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – US exclusive)

Bearers of the NWOBHM movement and responsible for ’83′s seminal Court In the Act and ’87′s Suspended Sentence, Satan make it abundantly clear with their upcoming new album that in 2018, they are not interested in simply capitalizing on past glories. Comprised of 10 tracks of searing metal, it is blatantly and profoundly the work of the Newcastle upon Tyne natives at their very best, infusing their signature sound with a more raw, wild and spontaneous vibe than they showcased on 2015′s mighty Atom By Atom – and in the process, displaying more passion and energy than slews of bands half their age.

Tracking the album at First Avenue Studio, they further demonstrated their trust and rapport with past collaborators, recruiting engineer Dave Curle and Dario Mollo to handle the mix, letting them handle the technical side of things so the quintet could focus all of their energies on giving the best performances. Confident in the songs they had written and how they wanted them to sound made the process a very easy one, walking out of the studio with a record of which they are understandably proud, and will reign supreme in the speakers and headphones of metalheads the world over when it drops in September. “We truly feel we’ve got it 100% right this time, the balance between considered content and reckless performance. We always break loose on stage so why not on record?”

Cruel Magic track-listing:
1. Into The Mouth Of Eternity
2. Cruel Magic
3. The Doomsday Clock
4. Legions Hellbound
5. Ophidian
6. My Prophetic Soul
7. Death Knell For A King
8. Who Among Us
9. Ghosts Of Monongah
10. Mortality

– August 8th, 2018 –

Since 2015, the name Endseeker has stood for the finest Swedish styled death metal from Hamburg, Germany. It’s hard as a fist and uncompromising – like binge drinking on St. Pauli – but with a big chunk of heart and soul to it.

Metal Blade and Endseeker are both excited to announce the signing of a multiple album deal. Comments the band: “Becoming part of the mighty Metal Blade family is literally a dream coming true that we didn’t even dare to wish for when we started the band a couple of years ago. To see ourselves in line with all these legendary artists makes each of us push us even harder and we’re totally on fire to work with the great people of Metal Blade on our upcoming album. Bring the booze and let’s raise some hell!

2015′s EP, ‘Corrosive Revelation‘, released on F.D.A. Records, set the benchmark for things to come. Produced by Eike Freese (Dark Age) and Alexander Dietz (Heaven Shall Burn), there was hardly any review not praising the band’s debut. From then on, Endseeker served their sound to numerous metal fans all over Germany.

In October 2017, Endseeker released their highly anticipated full-length, ‘Flesh Hammer Prophecy‘ – once again recorded and produced by Eike Freese at the famous Chameleon Studios in the heart of Hamburg. On this record, the band also got some assistance from death metal icon Marc Grewe (Insidious Disease, ex-Morgoth), who laid down guest vocals on the song ‘Black Star Rising’, plus took part in the music video. Bending the knee to the Swedish heroes from the early 90′s, but still keeping a distinctive level of originality, the resulting ‘Flesh Hammer Prophecy‘ album left fans, old and new, just as excited as the press:

On ‘Flesh Hammer Prophecy‘, Endseeker performs death metal like it’s supposed to be – brutally honest and honestly brutal!(metal.de)

The new record is great joy to listen to but also kicks you in the face.(Legacy)

…it’s suitable to call it a death metal highlight of the year.(xxl-rock.de)

Endseeker was voted “Death Metal climber of the year” by the editors of Metal Hammer Germany in 2017 and ended up on position 5 in the reader’s poll of Rock Hard Germany in the category “newcomer of the year”. The album also got a stunning 9.5 out of 10 review in Deaf Forever magazine.

After sharing the stage with bands like Cannibal Corpse, Hatebreed, Mantar, Kvelertak, Warpath, Lifeless, Demonbreed, among others, plus appearing at several festivals like Summer Breeze Open Air, In Flammen, Grind The Nazi Scum, Weltturbojugendtage, Holsteiner Death Fest, Swamp Fest, Ear Terror Festival, Headache Inside and many more, Endseeker will be headlining the tent stage on Thursday at Party.San Open Air 2018, with more tour activities to follow, before entering the studio in 2019.
