In addition to the brand new title cut,“Master Of Confusion”features a second new studio track,“Empire Of The Undead”, showing the heavier side of the band, with an explosion of energy and pureGAMMA RAYsound at its best.

The release is not free from tasty rarities: a brand new studio cover versions of British glam rock bandSWEET(“Lost Angels”— “the reason I have joined a band many years ago,” statedGAMMA RAYfrontmanKai Hansen) and a hidden treasure of NWOBHM (“Death Or Glory”byHOLOCAUST).

Reposted from Blabbermouth.net

According to numerous reports out of New Orleans,Joey LaCaze, drummer ofEYEHATEGOD,OUTLAW ORDERandTEN SUICIDES, has passed away. He was 42 years old and leaves behind a wife and a child. No further details are currently available.

EYEHATEGODjust completed a month-long tour of Europe and was gearing up for a string of dates in celebration of its 25th anniversary.

It was recently announced thatEYEHATEGODwould make an appearance atPhilip Anselmo‘s first annualHousecore Horror Film Festivalthis fall in Austin, Texas.

Since forming in 1988,EYEHATEGODhas defied all odds and continues to exist and persist despite personal and professional setbacks. They’ve been called doomcore, sludge and stoner rock, survived line-up shuffles, label hassles and a short-lived split. And after more than two decades of creating some of the most corrosive, vile music known to man,EYEHATEGODstill hasn’t lost the piss and vinegar that fueled it back the late Eighties.
