Old Man Gloom (Converge, Cave In, ex-Isis) had their fun at the expense of the internet at large when they surprise revealed that their new album “The Ape Of God” was in fact a two-album affair.

Monuments Tap Ex-The Faceless Drummer Alex Rudinger For Fall Tour

Monuments have recruited drummer Alex Rudinger (ex-The Faceless, etc.) for their fall North American tour with Devin Townsend and Animals As Leaders. The group had the following to say of that:

“Hey guys,

We’d like you to send positive vibes to our drummer Mike Malyan. Unfortunately, he threw down too hard in London and is still a broken soul, he will be unable to join us on tour with Devin Townsend and Animals as Leaders next week. So if you see him, make sure you buy him a cup of concrete to man the hell up (kidding buddy, we love you and wish you a full recovery as soon as possible)

Special thanks to ‘G Mane Cheh‘ for filling in for Mike the past 2 weeks in Europe! You rule you little Irish Bastard.

We have enlisted help from our friend ‘Alex Rudinger‘ (ex The Faceless, Session), who will take Mike‘s place behind the throne for the tour.

Alex comments:
‘I’m stoked to be helping out my buds in Monuments for their US/Canada run with Devin and AAL, I can’t wait to get back on the road! I wish Mike a super speedy recovery with his back injury, keep safe bro!’”

Burning Love (Ex-Cursed) To Release New 7″ On Deathwish, Inc.

Burning Love (ex-Cursed) have aligned themselves with Deathwish Inc. and will have a new 7″ out through the label in the months to come. Tracks featured include “Down So Long” and “Medicine Man“. According to an official press release:

“”Down So Long” b/w “Medicine Man” is a two song banger of an EP, recorded by Josh Korody at Candle in Toronto (Fucked Up, etc). Opener “Down So Long” emerges from ghostly feedback with an unrelenting punk romp. Lyrically addressing the social chaos of our world askew, despite the illusion of military and political order. While the infectious “Medicine Man” addresses fashionable drug addiction in the punk world, despite the trail of havoc that it cuts through the most wounded of world populations.”

Cradle Of Filth Sign Worldwide Deal With Nuclear Blast

When the next Cradle Of Filth album arrives next year it will do so through the groups new label home of Nuclear Blast Records. The UK outfit have just inked a new worldwide deal with the label, of which vocalist Dani Filth commented:

Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger has been trying to snare the band ever since I flew over to see him way back in 1996 as a viable label option, after we left Cacophonous records. He barely missed out due to the close proximity to the band of Music For Nations, the label that CRADLE stayed with until 2001. Now, not only do Nuclear Blast have offices all over the world, but the one in London is actually dead opposite to the old MFN building! Which is weird!

For the full frontal assault we have planned for the awesome new album, Nuclear Blast are the perfect war stallion to carry us screaming into the heart of the next chapter of COF’s dark, enigmatic history. Next year is going to be a massive year for the band and the black flags start flying here, with the announcement of our unholy union with Nuclear Blast who have already done great things with my Witch County band, Devilment.”
