RINGWORM Premiere “Shades Of Blue” Music Video via Stereogum

Ringworm band promo pic

Cleveland hardcore/thrash heavyweights RINGWORM have just shared a new music video from their forthcoming full-length Snake Church via Stereogum, who stated that “[RINGWORM have] refined absurdly tough-sounding stompfests down to a science.” Additionally, the band’s Human Furnace described the video,

 

“”Not horror, but more of a twisted love tale that accompanies the song. The story segments of the video where taken from a short film of the same name, “Shades of Blue”. It’s a sequel, a part 2. It picks up where the story told in the 2005 Ringworm video Justice Replaced by Revenge leaves off. Surprisingly, the entire project came together quite organically, despite being shot 11 years apart. We were able to get the same lead actors that we used 11 years ago and we were able to combine the original JRBR (Justice Replaced by Revenge) footage, current footage and secondary footage, (shot later) to tell the second part of the story. The Shades video tells part of that story that is fully revealed in the short film.”

 

Watch “Shades Of Blue” now at this location:

 

Also, you can watch the official music video for the title track “Snake Church” (directed by Don Tyler) here.

 

Legendary Cleveland quintet RINGWORM‘s 8th full-length album Snake Church is a 12-track, 30+ minute testament of vicious aggression. After having converted metalheads and hardcore fans alike with their intense, no-holds-barred live shows and consistently punishing albums over the course of the last 25+ years, RINGWORM once again prove that they are in a league of their own when it comes to face-breaking sonic fury. Recorded and produced by Ben Schigel (Chimaira, ZAO) at Spider Studios and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Xibalba, Black Breath), Snake Church obliterates the listener and never relents, leaving nothing but bile and bone in its wake.

 

Snake Church is due out this July 29 on CD/LP/Digital via Relapse. Physical pre-orders can be found at this location, and digital pre-orders are available via the band’s Bandcamp page here.

 

Info/Bio:
Ever since emerging from the Cleveland metal underground, RINGWORM has garnered the immediate attention of hardcore and metal fans. RINGWORM displays an awesome ferocity in the power of its instruments, and vocalist The Human Furnace uses his voice as a tool to extract the diabolical nature of anyone who hears it. The band has toured with dozens of prominent metal and hardcore acts over the years, ranging from Hatebreed and Converge to Goatwhore, Napalm Death, Voivod, and Eyehategod.

 

RINGWORM was spawned in 1991 from the metal scene in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1993, the band released The Promise (Incision Records), finding their place amongst other hardcore metal heavyweights such as Integrity and Earth Crisis. However, despite this early success, RINGWORM decided to pursue personal ventures: the Human Furnace concentrated his focus on tattooing and his artwork, while other members joined up with hardcore legends Integrity. Nearly 10 years later, 2001 saw RINGWORM emerge from their hiatus with their critically-acclaimed Victory Records debut Birth Is Pain. Extensive touring followed. The band continued on a steadily upward trajectory, honing its craft and releasing the well-received albums Justice Replaced By Revenge (2005), The Venomous Grand Design, (2007), and Scars (2011) via Victory over the course of the next decade.

 

In 2013, RINGWORM signed to renowned independent label Relapse Records and released yet another testament to their sheer brutality. 2014’s Hammer Of The Witch helped elevate the band far beyond underground circles, cementing RINGWORM‘s reputation as a hardcore / metal heavyweight and garnering praise from by a wide range of publications worldwide including Pitchfork, MetalSucks, and Revolver. 2016 is poised to be a breakout year for RINGWORM with the impending release of the band’s eighth full-length, Snake Church.

Whitechapel streams new album, ‘Mark of the Blade’, via VansWarpedTour.com; launches social media takeover of Vans Warped Tour channels

Whitechapel - Mark of the Blade

In anticipation of the release of their sixth full-length, Mark of the Blade, Whitechapel is now streaming their new album in full, before it hits stores on June 24th via Metal Blade Records. To hear Mark of the Blade in its entirety, please visit VansWarpedTour.com: http://vanswarpedtour.com/2016/90-days-to-warped-whitechapel – where fans can also find additional exclusive content from Whitechapel as part of the ongoing “90 Days to Warped” promotion, leading up to the band’s appearance on Warped Tour this summer.

Reunited with producer Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Cannibal Corpse), Whitechapel has redefined who they are and what they are capable of with Mark of the Blade. Kicking off with “The Void” – which has a Slayer-esque ferocity that is perfectly suited to the band’s three-guitar attack – the songs that follow all leave a distinct impression, and by the time the rich, dark melodies on “Decennium” bring the record to a close, it’s impossible to deny the emotional weight brought to bear. Guitarist Alex Wade explains, “At this point in our career and as we grow older, we are taking a more open-minded approach to creating our music, allowing what we think sounds good to evolve naturally, rather than to just write what is expected of us.”

To pre-order Mark of the Blade in various formats, please visit: metalblade.com/whitechapel
