There appears to be a metal fan involved with the CBS TV series ‘Elementary‘. The music of both Carcass (‘Captive Bolt Pistol‘) & Goatwhore (‘Baring Teeth For Revolt‘) made a cameo of sorts during a recent episode of the series.

Texas In July have headed home from tour early as a result of a “severe medical emergency” for their drummer Adam Gray. The band announced the matter:

“We’re so sorry to say this but we unfortunately will not be able to attend any of the remaining dates of our current Canadian tour, due to a sudden and severe medical emergency for Adam. After seeing multiple doctors and an overnight stay in the hospital, we’re told that he will be completely okay – and will be back at the drum kit soon – but with that we need to get him back home and let him rest up for the time being. Hoping for a speedy recovery and we’ll do our best to keep you updated!

Canada, we were so looking forward to this tour and apologize for all of the cancelled dates. We, of course, plan to make it up to you sometime soon. Our friends in Within The Ruins will continue on the tour without us, so please be sure to go out and support them!”

Cancer Bats have aligned with Metal Blade Records for the March 10th North American release of their new album “Searching For Zero“. The group worked on the opus with producer Ross Robinson (Korn, Slipknot.) Frontman Liam Cormier said of what went into the effort:

“We were coming out of what was a really heavy year for all of us, with a lot of challenges, non-stop touring and the deaths of people really close to the band. With all of these things we’ve had to deal with this past year, we were all at the point of saying “no more bullshit”, we’ve dealt with everything, nothing is standing in our way. We’ve found our absolute zero, where there can no longer be a negative, and from that point, everything moving forward can only be positive”

Two bonus tracks, “Kill Me Please…” and “Rust And Bone” will be available exclusively with the iTunes edition of the effort. For pre-orders, head to
