hatebeak the number of the beak

The much talked about death metal/grindcore outfit fronted by a parrot Hatebeak will be releasing their new album Number of the Beak on June 26, 2015 via Reptilian Records. Hatebeak was formed in Baltimore, MD as a studio project of Blake Harrison (now of Pig Destroyer) with Mark Sloan (The Index) and Waldo, a 21 year old African Grey Parrot. The album was mastered by Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed) will be issued on CD, cassette, as well as limited vinyl runs (including 300 on a special Bird Shit black/white/clear color mix). Featuring a sure-to-be controversial cover by artist Stephen Kasner, one side of the vinyl collects all of Hatebeak’s long out-of-print EPs from 2004-2007 while the other side features six never released songs, the first new avian-metal to surface in eight years!

six feet under chris barnes

Six Feet Under is streaming “Gruesome,” off of their upcoming full length album Crypt Of The Devil, out May 5, 2015 via Metal Blade Records here.

The new record was recorded at Phil “Landphil” Hall‘s studio in Virginia. Hall tracked rhythm and bass guitar, while his brother, Josh, tracked drums, and guitarist Brandon Ellis tracked the majority of the album’s leads. Barnes took to London Bridge Studio (Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains etc.) in his new homebase in Seattle, WA to track vocals and in fact holed himself up in the very same booth where Layne Staley captured his words. Mixing was completed by Rob Caldwell (Cannabis Corpse, Iron Reagan etc.) in Sarasota, FL and mastering was handled by Alan Douches (Cannibal Corpse, Revocation, Torche, Skeletonwitch etc.) at West West Side in New Windsor, NY.
