Keyboardist Chris Spicuzza leaves Chimaira

published on April 6, 2011 by Zandra
Chimaira keyboardist/programmer Chris Spicuzza has left the band :

"The choice was extremely tough and stewed around in my mind for quite awhile. Many things led to this decision. The situation in Chimaira had ultimately become a negative environment that I had to get out of. Secondly, the music industry is completely fucked and honestly, I became concerned for my future. The amount of work and stress I took on got the best of me. I guess if you're not happy or having fun, what's the point?:

As far as the new Chimaira album, I have not contributed to it. There is no doubt in my mind that CHIMAIRA's sound will not suffer minus my presence. The demos I heard showed great potential and I’m sure the album will melt faces. I'm proud to say I was on five Chimaira albums and wish those guys the best.
"

Chris "Zeuss" Harris (Hatebreed, Shadows Fall, Murderdolls, 3 Inches Of Blood) will mix the band's new album, which will be released in August.

Morbid Angel reveals album and single artworks

published on March 31, 2011 by Zandra
Morbid Angel will release their new album "Illud Divinum Insanus" on June 7 via Season Of Mist. The first single "Nevermore" will be made available on May 16 as a digital download and even-inch vinyl single. The cover artworks for the album and the single, which can be viewed below, were created by Gustavo Sazes (album) and by French artists Valnoir and Fursy Teyssier (single).

Commented the band on the album artwork : "After a long brainstorming period and some [good and bad] ideas left behind, we came up with the concept of this organic surreal insane being; a fallen God or a weird mirror image of our own madness. It is a different MORBID ANGEL cover for sure, but I think that's how MORBID ANGEL is...Deviant and different on each new release. They never repeat themselves. They are always pushing the boundaries and setting new standards.

I'm really proud of the final results and hope the fans appreciate my work, while listening to the new album!"

Pain Of Salvation releases "Where It Hurts" music video

published on March 31, 2011 by Zandra
"Where It Hurts", the new video from Swedish outfit Pain Of Salvation can be viewed below.

Commented Daniel Gildenlöw : "Finally the video for 'Where it Hurts' is officially released! I have longed for this moment for months.

With 'Road Salt' I decided from the start to be insanely brave — always going where the music and lyrics would take us and never hesitate or consider the consequences. This approach was very dominant already when we first started taking photos for the album. I found myself in situations I had never expected to find myself in — we dressed in skirts, waded knee-deep in ice cold lakes, lying in freezing and maggot filled swamp water, making out with relatives in front of the camera — the whole three-day shoot ending with a huge bonfire where we played acoustic music and burned furniture long into the cold Swedish night.

'Road Salt One', as an album, is a result of these same premises, and anyone listening to it cannot say anything else than that it is brave and uncompromising. I felt as hellbent on going our own way with this album as I did back in 2000 when we recorded 'The Perfect Element Part I'. 'Is this guitar too loud and dry? Let's see what happens if we go even further!'

I wanted to commit just as devotedly to the videos for 'Road Salt One'. The premises Brave and Uncompromising were very present here too. I wanted the video to land somewhere between '70s Asian karate movies on VHS, 'Kill Bill' and the aesthetic world of comic magazines from the '90s. Like everything about 'Road Salt One', I wanted it to be raw and brave yet beautiful.

The video is cut between two graphical environments or scenes. The scaled down and arty white, black-and-red scenes, representing the abstract and emotional, and the darker warm and grainy sex scenes, representing the physical. The video is revolving around themes of love, sex, hurt and reconciliation, and is reaching back to earlier videos and albums by PAIN OF SALVATION.
