Treacherously heavy Death Metal band “Abigail Williams” have announced they have nearly concluded the writing procedure for their forthcoming album, set to be released in the early stages of next year, since beginning to work on the tracks after they concluded their last European tour.

The almost Doom Metal esque group are set to test the waters with some of their sparklingly fresh material on their forthcoming tour, set to run between August the 25th and September 23rd. The tour will integrate a number of shows in the United States of America, but will not be coming to the shores of the United Kingdom.

Band leader ‘Sorceron’ has, according to the bands official MySpace blog, stated the following about the bands last tour: “The shows were excellent. We had a great time with our friends in “Iskald” and “Thulcandra” and hope we can join them again in the future. A big thanks to everyone who came out to the shows; we appreciate your support”.

“Abigail Williams” are a Los Angeles based band. Although having countless parallel traits as the majority of leading Death metal bands, the group incorporate a fluent and vastly prominent use of keyboard and synthetic effects into their music.

‘Sorceron’ also added: “the new material is a continuation of our last album but with more atmosphere and far more extreme tempos”.

The band currently has four releases out on the shelves. These are “In the Absence of Light” (Studio Album), “In the Shadow of a Thousand Suns” (Studio Album), “Legend” (EP), and another EP by the name of “Tour 2009 EP”.

Californian based modern death metal band “Suicide Silence” have released a new video for their song “You only Live Once” on the internet this week to correspond with the release of their brand new album “The Black Crown”.

The video shows the band being shot at whilst in performance live on a shooting range. Throughout, the video gets increasingly more violent, as does the music, until the final scene where the band is shot at with a missile launcher.

Speaking about their new album on their Official MySpace Blog, “Suicide Silence” wrote: “You can now pick up our latest album, ‘The Black Crown’, at Best Buy, Target, F.Y.E, iTunes, Walmart and more”.

Known for their somewhat shocking and visual approach to music videos, “Suicide Silence” is a five piece band fronted by renound vocalist ‘Mitch Lucker’. The new album will see guest appearances from ‘Jonathan Davis’ of “Korn” and ‘Frank Mullen’ of “Suffocation”.

Savagely raw Death Metal outfit “Job for a Cowboy” are streaming their latest release on the renound and well recognized “Metal Sucks” website for fans to listen too ahead of its official release.

The EP is due to hit the shelves and download sites in June this year, and it is confirmed that the EP will be titled “Gloom”.

Drummer ‘John ‘Charn’ Rice’ wrote on the bands official MySpace page that “Initially we had the idea for the EP to be a little bit slower but it turned out to be some of our fastest material to date”. To listen to the release please go to:

The full track listing for “Gloom” is as follows: “Misery Reformatory”, “Plastic Idols”, “Execution Parade” and finally “Signature of Starving Power”.

‘Jason Suecof’ has been announced as being the man answerable for the production of the EP. This producer is often identified for his work with similar devastatingly heavy band “The Black Dahlia Murder”.

The album outwardly appears more smoothed around the edges than past releases, however, it still incontestably has that signature contemporary death metal vibe the band are legendary for.

At the end of this year “Job for a Cowboy” are set to tour with headliners “Between the Buried and Me”. The line up will also see “The Ocean” and “Cephalic Carnage” tread over a number of cities including ‘Paris’, ‘London’ and ‘Amsterdam’.
