The self-proclaimed confused and anxious bunch in Nervous have unleashed their first full length on Twelve Gauge Records. The album is a mix of desperation, and fiery intensity fueled by interesting instrumentation and offset flow that might just be enough to draw an interested crowd. But rest assured, this isn't an album that everyone is …

The Secret has unfurled a new live video from the band’s 2012-released “Agnus Dei” LP this week. Directed and edited by Rasmus G. Sejersen from live footage he filmed at the nihilistic Italian crew’s crushing show in Copenhagen, Denmark last year, the video for “May God Damn All Of Us” artistically authenticates the band’s brutalizing live intensity

The Ancient Crypts demo “Devoured by Serpents” has just seen international release via Iron Bonehead Productions, and you can stream two tracks from the demo below. The following press release was also issued about the band: “Ancient Crypts may be a new name, but this Chilean cult includes scene veterans from such revered bands as Unaussprechlichen Kulten and Invincible Force. Unmistakably South American in its humid, hellish intensity, Ancient Crypt’s Devoured by Serpents demo ravages and conquers, defiles and reviles, reverent of the ancient Metal of Death whilst often dragging the decibels down into doom-entrenched muck

Machine Head

Passion: Flynn, Phil Demmel and Dave McClain of Machine Head

Machine Head have closed public auditions for a new bassist, and the band admit they’ve been blown away by the quality of applications.

But one man reduced some of Robb Flynn’s men to tears by submitting a video of him playing the hardest song on the list – with just one hand.

Machine Head fired Adam Duce in February, with Flynn saying: “He quit well over a decade ago. He just never bothered to tell anyone, but we all knew it.”

They announced open auditions soon afterwards, inviting fans to submit videos of themselves playing bass and singing. Now that process has been completed, and those chosen for the shortlist will be invited to jam with the band in the near future.

In a statement they say: “A lot of hard work and effort went into each and every submission, with many people bravely making them public for the whole world to see and judge. It took a lot of brass to do that – we earned an even greater respect for our fans in doing so.

“There are some incredible musicians out there, fantastic players who unfortunately did not make an attempt to sing, and thus were ineligible, but you should absolutely keep at it! In fact, in the course of these submissions, it looks like many people have earned a lot of fans in doing so. Congrats!”

Machine Head single out fan Frank Memolo for a special mention: “Many of the men and women who sent in YouTube clips performing, did so with the utmost passion and intensity. But of all the submissions, this man deserves a special mention. He learned and played not only the hardest song of the submission, This Is The End, but played it with only one hand.

“It moved some of us to tears. It took a lot of heart to do this. Cheers, Frank Memolo.”

Chicago death metallers Broken Hope reformed earlier this year to embark on a tour with Obituary and subsequently signed a new record deal with Century Media. The band has now issued the following update about an upcoming album:

“We want to give you all a quick Broken Hope update before the New Year, and we have some exciting news! First, congratulations to Broken Hope’s own Shaun Glass on the birth of his first child: Maddux Burton Glass, born Dec 17, 2012. Maddux enters the world just before Christmas and just as Broken Hope is writing the new album!

“Speaking of the new album, we can officially say that we’ve written 11 songs so far– and are still trucking along with more material. The new material is so ferocious, we jokingly sum up the vibe of the new music as ‘Reign In Bowels’ because it’s like someone took Slayer’s ‘Reign In Blood’ and mated that intensity and horror with the extremity and sickness of Broken Hope’s ‘Bowels of Repugnance’ album… It’s insanely heavy and unrelenting! That said, here’s a couple song titles we can release to you all– chew on these: ‘The Flesh Mechanic’ and ‘Give Me the Bottom Half.’ We can’t wait for you to hear ‘em all! Happy Holidays everyone!”

Broken Hope 2012 is:

Damian Leski – Vocals
Jeremy Wagner – Guitars
Shaun Glass – Bass
Chuck Wepfer – Lead Guitars
Mike Miczek – Drums

“The Siren’s Song,” a brand new song from Slice The Cake’s forthcoming studio album set to be released via Myriad Records, has now been posted online and can be heard below. The band also comments:

“Things have grown fairly quiet in the Slice The Cake camp as of late, but we’ve been slowly and steadily sowing the seeds to build an amazing future for our musical meeting of minds, and we’re ready to finally show the first blooming flowers to the world.

“First off, we’re proud to announce our signing to Myriad Records! Myriad is a great independent label with some real ethics fuelling them, rather than being an exploitative machine that destroys artistic expression. Some other great bands that have worked/are currently working with Myriad are The Schoenberg Automaton, Bleeding Skies and Friend for a Foe. Myriad’s a great little family of musicians and we’re stoked to be joining them!

“Leading on from that, we shall be releasing our next album Other Slices through them, first through all good digital distributors and on CD + 10″ Vinyl Picture Disk soon after. For this album, we wanted a release from the thematic intensity of our previous work, an opportunity to bring in some guest musicians, and a chance to show people what gets left on the cutting room floor.
Though that’s not to say we think these songs are somehow lesser works than anything we have released to date, but rather this album is a collection of songs we felt were great that just didn’t fit into our previous releases for a variety of reasons. Some of it was written after the release of The Man With No Face, some of it before, some of it is a drastic departure from what we’d usually do, some of it is more traditional, but we think you’ll find it all equally delicious.. The track list is as follows:

1. Blow Up Voodoo Doll
2. False Illumination
3. Nebulayer Cake
4. The Siren’s Song
5. Fractal Exam Sequence
6. A Dance With Dragons
7. 4th Dimensional Obversation
8. Cleansed
9. Genghis Tron, Come Home, We Miss You!
10. The Great Migration
11. Kow Otani’s Castle in the Sky

“And to satiate your appetites, here’s the first slice from our incoming collection of baked goods…”
