Italian/Norwegian hard-industrial-electro extreme metallers ABORYM, who feature in ther ranks Fabban and Paolo Pieri (HOUR OF PENANCE) along with drummer Bård G. “Faust” Eithun (BLOOD TSUNAMI, MONGO NINJA, ex-EMPEROR), have inked a new deal with Agonia Records. Details on band’s seventh full-length album, the follow-up to 2013’s “Dirty”, are yet to be announced.

ABORYM is currently working on a new video for the song “Bleedthrough”, taken from “Dirty”. The clip is being directed by Andrea Malkavian and the Victorlab crew.

ABORYM‘s “Dirty” video can be seen below. Directed by Alberto Falcone, the clip features all three band members as well as actors, and, according to frontman and founder Fabban, the title of the track pretty much sums up the subject matter of the video.

ABORYM‘s sixth full-length album, “Dirty”, was released on May 28, 2013 in Europe and June 11, 2013 in North America via Agonia Records. The 10-track double album (cover below) was made available in digipak, jewel case and gatefold double LP formats.

“Dirty” was recorded at the Fear No One Studios in Italy with Emiliano Natali, reprising his sound engineer role from the band’s “Psychogrotesque” album, and was helmed by Marc Urselli of New York’s Eastside Sound Studio, who previously worked with the likes of Mike Patton and Lou Reed. The electronic part of the album was engineered by D. Loop (KEBABTRAUME, LIMBO). R.G. Narchost (STORMCROW, DEMON’S SHADE, DROWNING ASHES) created “The Spiral Shaped Chamber” custom sounds library for the band. Artwork for the album is by ABORYM‘s Fabban.

The first CD of the album features new material, while the second CD features two tracks from previous albums, which have been completely re-arranged and re-recorded, covers of tracks by IRON MAIDEN, PINK FLOYD and NINE INCH NAILS, and a previously unreleased track performed by both musicians such as Agonia BV, Tamara Picardo, Samuel Heru Ra Ha MK, Hostis, Ulven, Mike Bizzini, David Cholasta, Tobias Dünnebacke, Jonathan Butcher, Jessy Lavallee, Thomas Hochstetler, Mary J. Rooks, Amanda Neilson and Mark Llewellyn, as well as several fans. The song was written by Alberto Penzin (CO2, ex-SCHIZO) and was spliced together from all the different sources.

According to Brazil’s Globo.com, SOUNDGARDEN has recruited Matt Chamberlain (pictured) to fill in for drummer Matt Cameron for the the band’s 2014 tour dates, including SOUNDGARDEN‘s upcoming summer U.S. trek with NINE INCH NAILS. Cameron will sit out the shows shows due to his live commitments with his other group, PEARL JAM.

Since the mid-1990s, Chamberlain, 46, has become well known as a session drummer, having appeared on over 200 records with sales well over 80 million worldwide. The diverse range of artists that Chamberlain has contributed his drumming to the tours and albums of include Peter Gabriel, THE WALLFLOWERS, Fiona Apple, Kanye West, Elton John, Natalie Merchant, John Mayer and Shakira.

In 2005, Chamberlain released a self-titled solo album on Web Of Mimicry Records that he describes as “an imaginary soundtrack to an Asian-Western sci-fi-horror movie.”

Cameron announced last November that he will be absent from SOUNDGARDEN 2014 tour dates “due to prior commitments promoting ‘Lightning Bolt’ with my brothers in PEARL JAM and the desire to have more time at home with my family. I am trying to balance the many twists and turns of my awesome music career. This is temporary.”

Cameron added, “I am still an active member of SOUNDGARDEN.”

Ironically, Cameron told The Pulse Of Radio not long ago that playing for both SOUNDGARDEN and PEARL JAM was not the most demanding thing he’d ever done. “You know what? I’ve actually been a lot busier in my life,” he said. “When I was in my 20s, I used to play in a bunch of different bands at once and it’s just part of the job of being a drummer — sometimes you’ve got to do a little juggling. But I’m certainly happy to do it.”

Cameron has been a member of PEARL JAM since 1998, the year after SOUNDGARDEN disbanded.

SOUNDGARDEN reunited in 2010, releasing its first album in 16 years, “King Animal”, in November 2012.

Tickets for SOUNDGARDEN‘s U.S. tour with NINE INCH NAILS will go on sale to the public Friday, March 21.

KILLER BE KILLED, the new band comprised of Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, ex-SEPULTURA), Greg Puciato (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN), Troy Sanders (MASTODON) and Dave Elitch (ex-THE MARS VOLTA), will release its self-titled debut album on May 13 (one day earlier internationally) via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The CD was produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur, whose credits include work with GOJIRA, LAMB OF GOD, HATEBREED, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, ESCAPE THE FATE, P!NK and STEVE EARLE. Cover art and packaging was executed by Ryan Clark of Invisible Creature Design, the Grammy-nominated design firm whose clients include ALICE IN CHAINS, FOO FIGHTERS, CHRIS CORNELL, DEVILDRIVER, MONSTER MAGNET, WOLFMOTHER and DEMON HUNTER.

“He’s a Polish worker in the back of a dark truck, but he looked like a criminal to me,” explains Clark about his choice for the cover’s image. “Multiplying his face seemed to give him a sort of split personality/schizophrenic vibe, which feels like a good mesh. Not just for the band name but the idea of a (for the lack of a better term) supergroup.”

“Killer Be Killed” track listing:

01. Wings Of Feather And Wax
02. Face Down
03. Melting Of My Marrow
04. Snakes of Jehova
05. Curb Crusher
06. Save The Robots
07. Fire To Your Flag
08. I.E.D.
09. Dust Into Darkness
10. Twelve Labors
11. Forbidden Fire
12. Ghosts Of Chernobyl (vinyl-only bonus track)

The songs “Wings Of Feather And Wax” and “Face Down” can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.

MetalSucks placed Puciato at #1 on their list of the Top 25 Modern Metal Frontmen, but he also expresses himself through the dark electro-pop of THE BLACK QUEEN, together with NINE INCH NAILS touring guitarist Josh Eustis of TELEFON TEL AVIV and Maynard James Keenan‘s PUSCIFER. Puciato made a guest appearance in 2012 with MIXHELL, the DJ project of Max‘s brother, SEPULTURA co-founder Igor Cavalera.

Cavalera is no stranger to collaborations, of course, having invited multiple guests onto SEPULTURA‘s genre-defining “Roots” and SOULFLY‘s gold-selling debut album in 1998. One such SOULFLY guest, Chino Moreno, has often joined Puciato onstage with both THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and DEFTONES. Max was one-half of the incendiary NAILBOMB, together with English record producer and FUDGE TUNNEL mastermind Alex Newport. The pair released one studio album in 1993 and performed a blistering set at the Dynamo festival in 1995.

“We did the song on SOULFLY‘s ‘Omen’ and then we started talking about doing an entire album together, the way he had with Alex Newport,” Puciato explains. “We eventually got together with some riffs we both had and wrote a bunch more material in a 72-hour blast out in the desert. We left with about 15 demos we made using the same drum machine and four track Max used working on ‘Chaos A.D.’

Cognizant of the reputation both of them have cultivated after working with some of the world’s best drummers, Puciato called upon David Elitch, who had toured internationally with the mind-bendingly psychedelic group THE MARS VOLTA. His expertise in everything from jazz to metal has led to live and studio collaborations with a diverse range of major artists including Justin Timberlake, French electronic wizards M83 and Norwegian singer-songwriter Susanne Sundfør.

KILLER BE KILLED has come together even as their main projects hit a collective stride: Max just released his ninth studio album with SOULFLY, “Savages”, to many of the strongest reviews of his legendary career. THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN‘s “One Of Us Is The Killer” debuted at #1 on Billboard‘s Hard Rock Album chart earlier this year. MASTODON‘s most recent album, “The Hunter”, was Album Of The Year in Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Rock Sound, Classic Rock, Terrorizer and Total Guitar in 2011.

MASTODON and THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN have toured together many times. During one such tour in the U.S., in late 2011, Puciato was telling Sanders about the new project. Before too long, Sanders and Cavalera were meeting at a festival in South America for the first time: “Hey, I’m Troy. And I think we’re in a band together.”

The electric chemistry was apparent the first time they all assembled. “Having met, created and recorded an album together, this experience has easily exceeded my initial expectations,” says Sanders. “The collective energy and mutual respect for one another eased the entire process and has been very therapeutic for me.”

The self-titled debut album from SCAR THE MARTYR, the new band led by SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison, is available for streaming in its entirety at relics.scarthemartyr.com. The CD will be released on October 1 via Roadrunner Records.

Recorded at Sound Farm Studios in Des Moines, Iowa, SCAR THE MARTYR‘s album was helmed by Rhys Fulber, whose production and mixing credits include FEAR FACTORY, ROB ZOMBIE, MINDLESS SELF INDULGENCE, FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY and more. The CD was written by Joey and lead vocalist Henry Derek Bonner (BLOOD PROMISE), and joining them in the studio were keyboardist Chris Vrenna (NINE INCH NAILS), as well as Simon and Norris, who collectively handled all lead guitars on the album.

“Scar The Martyr” track listing:

01. Intro
02. Blood Host
03. My Retribution
04. Soul Disintegration
05. Cruel Ocean
06. Dark Ages
07. Sign Of The Omeneye
08. Anatomy Of Erinyes
09. Prayer For Prey
10. White Nights In A Day Room
11. Effigy Unborn
12. Never Forgive Never Forget
13. Mind’s Eye
14. Last Night On Earth

Bonus tracks:

01. Flatline & Fracture

SCAR THE MARTYR was recently on the road as the support act for DANZIG on a North American tour which also included performances by former MISFITS guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein and HUNTRESS. The trek kicked off August 9 at Sound Academy in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and wrapped up on August 31 at Tempe, Arizona’s Marquee Theatre.

In addition to Jordison, SCAR THE MARTYR‘s lineup for the tour featured singer Henry Derek Bonner (BLOOD PROMISE), guitarists Jed Simon (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) and Kris Norris (DARKEST HOUR), keyboardist Joey Blush and bassist Kyle Konkiel (IN THIS MOMENT).

“With this project, I focused my efforts on writing for the better of the song,” said Jordison. “I wasn’t worried about flash or persona… It’s all about writing a good solid song. I’m writing music that people can grasp and hold on to…something that resonates. If you don’t have that, then you have nothing.”

“I’d been working on new SLIPKNOT material since the end of the ‘All Hope Is Gone’ tour cycle, but I ended up with so much stuff I had to take a step back and stop working on it,” he explained to Metal Hammer magazine. “The time wasn’t right. But I came up with a bunch of material that was really killer and heavy and started taking some of it in a different direction. I started focusing on a lot of the post-punk and industrial stuff that I’ve always loved and started putting super heavy and brutal guitars over the top of it. That’s how it started. It’s taken me a couple of years to get to this point, but I can honestly say this is the most satisfied I’ve ever been in the studio. I can’t wait for everyone to hear this shit.”

SCAR THE MARTYR will support ALICE IN CHAINS on their U.K. tour in November.
