On September 15, Shabby Hasan of In The Now Magazine conducted an interview with with vocalist Ryan McCombs of SOIL at the Aftershock festival at Discovery Park in Sacramento, California. You can now watch the chat below.

SOIL‘s sixth studio album, “Whole”, was released on August 20 via Pavement Entertainment. It’s the band’s first 100% independent release.

“Whole” is the first SOIL album with original frontman Ryan McCombs since 2004’s “Re.De.Fine” (after which he joined DROWNING POOL). It sees SOIL returning to its classic sound that fans have come to admire, with a pres release calling it the CD “that could have come directly after the ‘Scars’ album in 2001.”

Following the 2012 release of its first-ever live DVD, “Re-LIVE-ing The Scars”, SOIL began writing new material and entered the studio in February 2013 with producer Ulrich Wild (PANTERA, BREAKING BENJAMIN) to begin recording.

“This was by far the most comfortable and natural recording process we have ever experienced,” said guitarist Adam Zadel. “From the writing, pre-production, and through the main tracking and mixing, everything was smooth and fluid.”

Songs featured on “Whole” include “Loaded Gun” and “Way Gone”. Another track, “Amalgamation”, sees McCombs taking songtitles from both the SOIL and DROWNING POOL releases he was a part of and weaving them into verses of the song.

“I think, lyrically speaking, those that are familiar with the work I’ve done are going to get the next chapter that they would expect,” McCombs says about the lyrical process. “Words from a heart and mind that has lived them.

“One of the greatest things I experience as a lyricist is when people come up and share with me how a song, or a specific verse or line from a song, got them through a hard time or times in their lives. It reminds me of the times music did that for me and how powerful music and/or a lyric can be in a person’s life.”

Drums and percussion on “Whole” were performed by Will Hunt (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, EVANESCENCE, DEVICE).

Will added a whole new dimension to the songs,” states King. “He added a monstrous and aggressive vibe to the album.”

A guest guitar solo on “Wake Up” was performed by longtime friend Mike Mushok of the band STAIND.

Former DARK ANGEL singer Don Doty has announced the formation of an as-yet-unnamed new project that will revisit the band’s classic “We Have Arrived” and “Darkness Descends” albums, as well as introduce fans worldwide to new material. Joining Doty in the new group is drummer Sasha Horn, who has previously played with FORBIDDEN, AVA INFERI and NOVEMBERS DOOM.

Doty and Horn have hit the ground running in an effort to start the writing process and to warm up the gears in preparation for the touring circuit. They are also considering bassists and guitarists for the new project and hope to make more announcements soon.

DARK ANGEL‘s management issued a statement last week accusing Don Doty of displaying a “lack of responsibility” by posting “false information” and starting “unfounded rumors” that have been “creating confusion” among the group’s fans. The management confirmed that DARK ANGEL will reform for a limited number of appearances in 2014 with a lineup that will feature Gene Hoglan (drums), Jim Durkin (guitar), Ron Rinehart (vocals) and Michael Gonzalez (bass). Guitarist Eric Meyer is also expected to be involved.

DARK ANGEL guitarist Jim Durkin said in a statement last month that any talk of the band’s reunion was “premature,” and added that “when I was last in the band, Ron Rinehart was my singer. And IF the band were to come back and continue. he would STILL be my singer. He was our rock when we needed him and there is NO WAY I would do this without him. He and I talk daily and are as close now as ever. If anything, all this talk has brought us all back into more frequent contact! Which is a wonderful thing.”

DARK ANGEL released two albums with Don Doty on vocals — 1984’s “We Have Arrived” and 1986’s “Darkness Descends” — before he exited the group and was replaced by Ron Rinehart (after a brief stint with Jim Drabos in 1987). The band issued two more studio LPs — 1989’s “Leave Scars” and 1991’s “Time Does Not Heal” — before calling it quits in 1992. Rinehart, Hoglan and Meyer reassembled DARK ANGEL more than a decade ago but were forced to abandon their reunion plans after health issues reportedly put an end to Rinehart‘s singing career.

Asked what he has been doing since leaving DARK ANGEL in 1987, Doty told Germany’s Radio Gehacktes last month: “It’s a long story, and at the same time, it’s a short one. I basically started a family and showed up to my last show [with DARK ANGEL] and told the guys, ‘Hey, look, [I have a] baby [on the way] and I can’t be on the road and do the family thing; it was just too hard for me. There were too many beautiful women in the world and there were too many other opportunities to go off the deep end, and I just could not do that. So with that being said, I took a step back and I told the guys, ‘There will be a day and I will come back and we will finish what we started.”

More behind-the-scenes footage from the making of “The Monster Within”, the fourth album from Stockholm, Sweden-based melodic death metallers DEGRADEAD, can be seen below. Released on August 23 via Metalville, the CD was recorded between January 14 and February 2 at Panic Room studios in Skara with producer Thomas “Plec” Johansson and marks the group’s first release with new drummer Amit Mohla. According to the band, “This album ended up being the best DEGRADEAD album so far! More dynamic, more melodic, more thrashy, more of everything!”

Commented Johansson: “It has been great going back to the roots even on this one. No drum triggers or sample replacements used whatsoever, which is otherwise so commonplace in today’s metal productions. We did it the hard way, with getting the right sounds from the start and having Amit actually playing the parts until we got the takes we needed, tuning the drums in between takes, switching snares for different songs etc… No plugins were used in the process either other than for very surgical tasks and special FX. All other processing are real chambers, hardware reverbs, delays, compression and EQ. Five times more work, but five times more fun and inspiring plus it’s five times more fun to listen to.”

“The Monster Within” track listing:

01. One Against All
02. The Monster Within
03. For Better Or Worse
04. Dead Will Come Alive
05. We’ll Meet Again
06. The Dark Mind
07. Strive To Struggle
08. Scars Of Misery
09. Tendency To Sin
10. Sorrow Never Survives

The “For Better Or Worse” video can be seen below.

DEGRADEAD‘s singer, Mikael Sehlin, recently joined fellow Swedes ENGEL as their new frontman.

Regarding what impact Sehlin‘s addition to ENGEL will have on his status in DEGRADEAD, DEGRADEAD said: “Mikael is still our vocalist and he is still 100% dedicated to DEGRADEAD and this will not affect DEGRADEAD.”

DEGRADEAD‘s third album, “A World Destroyer”, was released in North America on June 28, 2011 via Metalville Records.

On August 6, 2010, DEGRADEAD played for their first time at the Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken. Germany. Their full set, as performed on the W.E.T Stage before an enthusiastic audience, along with many extras, is included on the DVD release, “Live At Wacken And Beyond”, which was released on February 28, 2012 via Metalville Records. The disc also contains “From Tullinge To Hyderabad”, a 50-minute documentary following DEGRADEAD from their first years in Tullinge, a small suburb south of Stockholm where the band was formed, to their successful tour of India in February 2011. It includes interviews, live clips and a lot of other “interesting stuff for the fans.”

“The Hate Song”, a new track from Chicago heavy rockers SOIL, can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget below. The song comes off the band’s sixth studio album, “Whole”, which will be released on August 20 via Pavement Entertainment. It’s the band’s first 100% independent release.

“It was funny how the song came about,” singer Ryan McCombs says of the new single. “Adam [Zadel] was doodling on his guitar making this super annoying sound when he caught me staring at him with a ‘wtf’ look. He apologized but I responded that ‘No. That annoying fucking sound would be perfect for this song about ‘hate’ I had an idea for.’ The sound itself makes me want to knock holes in the wall.”

“Whole” is the first SOIL album with original frontman Ryan McCombs since 2004’s “Re.De.Fine” (after which he joined DROWNING POOL). It sees SOIL returning to its classic sound that fans have come to admire, with a pres release calling it the CD “that could have come directly after the ‘Scars’ album in 2001.”
