Reposted from Blabbermouth.net

Pennsylvania-based extreme metallers INCANTATION have recorded an exclusive track for Decibel magazine’s Flexi Disc series, which is available only to subscribers.

For their contribution to Decibel, INCANTATION founder John McEntee dug into his vault and pulled up the tune “Degeneration” off the self-titled 1989 demo from his pre-INCANTATION tech-thrash band REVENANT. INCANTATION gave the song a proper reworking and the deathed-up, newly recorded version of the song will appear inside the December 2012 issue of Decibel.

Non-subscribers have until 9 a.m. on Wednesday, October 10 to visitDecibelMagazine.com to sign up in time to receive the disc.

INCANTATION is set to release the follow-up to 2006’s “Primordial Decimation”, a concept album entitled “Vanquish In Vengeance”, this November on Listenable Records.

Guitarist Luca Turilli of Italian “cinematic” metallers LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY has issued the following update:

“Some days ago, my girlfriend Nadia received a phone call from Laurence, the wife of [LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY guitarist] Dominique [Leurquin]. I understood from Nadia’s tears that something terrible just happened. A river of blood and then the dramatic run to the hospital with Dominique almost dying for all the blood he shed. Three hours of surgery and the risk to lose the left hand definitely. I could simply not believe it.”

Dominique injured himself while working at home with a circular saw. After a complicated surgery and everyone fearing that it would be difficult for Dominique to play his beloved instrument ever again, the doctors had more optimistic words to describe the situation, recommending a long period of rehabilitation and predicting major problems related to the thumb only. Therefore, it appears that Dominique will once again be able to play the guitar, and possibly sooner than one might expect.

Since LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY was in the middle of preparations for its upcoming tour, an important decision was made: to not replace Dominique with another guitar player but to simply add his parts to the backing tracks at lower volume and mixed on the right side, as if he were up on stage performing with his bandmates.

Commented LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY bass player Patrice Guers: “Dominique, for us, is more than friend. He is a real brother and everybody knows how important was for him this first tour as official member of RHAPSODY. It is just not possible to replace him and we won’t do it! When Luca communicated this to Dominique, he almost shed some tears for the happiness, so much he appreciated this decision.”

Added drummer Alex Landenburg: “No matter if it will take six months or one year to have Dominique back with us on stage, what is sure is that we’ll wait for him as he is a fundamental member of our band. Surely won’t be the same to go on stage without him!”

Said singer Alessandro Conti: “Every show of this tour will be dedicated to our brother. I know Dominique since some months only but I can tell you that I already love him for his talent and for being a man of great value.”

Due to the recent events, the release of LUCA TURILLI’S RHAPSODY’s new cinematic ballad “Fantasia Gotica” will be postponed until after the tour.

EXHUMED: West Coast Gore Goliaths Enter Studio


After nearly two years of nonstop live demolition, West Coast gore-torn death metal goliaths, EXHUMED, recently entered the studio to record to the follow-up to 2011’s All Guts, No Glory full-length. The band is currently tracking drums at Trench Studio in Corona, California with John Haddad (Hirax, Abysmal Dawn, Intronaut). Everything else will be tracked at Arcane Digital Recording in Chandler, Arizona with Ryan Butler (Misery Index, Landmine Marathon, Phobia). The as-yet-untitled long player is expected to offer up ten tracks of audio sickness including “Carrion Call,” “Sickened,” “The Rotting,”and “Coins Upon The Eyes,” and will be released via Relapse Records sometime next year.

Comments vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey of the new material: “We’re super psyched to be back in the studio working on a new record. The songs we’ve worked up are a bit darker and more open this time around, but of course built on the same disgusting foundation we’ve been repulsing people with for years. It’s a really natural progression from All Guts… and it’s a lot of fun to work with the lineup that’s done all the touring. It feels a lot more like a ‘real band’ situation this time around. There will be periodic studio reports on our blog if you want to stay abreast of all the excruciating details. We can’t wait to get this thing ready to assault your ears!

EXHUMED 2012 features the smoldering lineup of Harvey alongside bassist Rob “Body Bag” Babcock, drummer Mike Hamilton and guitarist/vocalist Bud Burke, who played bass with the band from 1999 – 2004 and recently rejoined the legion for their live rituals on this year’s Summer Slaughter Tour. Further studio updates to be announced in the coming weeks…
