Beyond Terror Beyond Grace new album pre-order, new tracks and Australian tour

Posted by Lachlan

The Australian grindcore 4-piece Beyond Terror Beyond Grace have announced a release date of February the 4th, 2010 for their new album "Our Ashes Built Mountains".

No details as to who will be releasing or distribution the album have yet come to light, but they have a pre-order available at their online store (you can secure a copy for $20 AUD, or a CD and T-Shirt combo for $40, and both come with 2 BTBG stickers).

"Our Ashes Built Mountains" was recorded, mixed and mastered by the incredible Tim Carr of Tim Carr-Theta Laboratories and 301 Studios Sydney, and features artwork by Colin Marks (Strapping Young Lad, Whitechapel, Aborted, Suicide Silence). There is also a long list of guest vocalists, including Jason Peppiatt (Psycroptic), Jarrod Krafcyk (ex-The Amenta/The Riot and the Trauma/Anchored Awake), Alex Pope (Ruins), Anna Vo (Crux), Blake Simpson (Gallows for Grace) and Tim Pope (The Amenta).

As you'd expect, two (heavily-compressed MP3 quality, MySpace-raped) cuts of the new album are listenable on their MySpace page. The amount which MySpace has clearly degraded the sound quality in its compression upsets me. As such I'm not going to make any judgements based on two low-quality MySpace sample tracks, so let me just say I am very curious and excited to see what the guys have come up with.

To support the new album, Beyond Terror Beyond Grace will take off on a 6-date national tour alongside New Zealand death metallers Ulcerate. It looks like Portal are also involved in at least the Sydney date, which is fucking awesome. Unforunately it doesnt look like Perth or Hobart are on that list.

The guys had this to say about the album:

"We are beyond happy with the results, and we feel that to say that this CD is an enormous step up musically, in production, lyrically and conceptually from the last album is a bit of an understatement. We have really made an effort to craft a complete album rather than just throwing a bunch of songs together - there are lyrical concepts, samples, ideas and motifs that thematically link throughout the whole CD. We are very much looking forward to getting it out there. More news soon, including labels, and international shows."

Cuntscrape new album and Australian tour

Posted by Lachlan

What can be said about WA's debauched porno-grinding perverts Cuntscrape? Their tunes are as groove-laden and catchy as they are perverse and pornographic - taking Heartwork-era Carcass and the dark humour of Macabre while knocking up the rock (and cock) factor to 11.

The result is an outrageously infectious metal group who go above and beyond to rock in the name of porn. With members of Maximum Perversion, Pathogen and The Furor, who could expect any less?

Cuntscape have returned with a brand new full length Papsmear Campaign (GET IT?!?!??!) and promise "23 quim quivering tracks specifically written for that special speculum moment". Considering how ridiculously fun their last two offerings have been (thats their full length Thrush Bang Mania and their Split Roast split CD) I'm very much looking forward to cranking this at inappropriate volumes around the elderly.

Papsmear Campaign is out on Prime Cuts Music on Novemeber 27th, 2009 - which is also the date which launches their national tour (including a run with Grindhead Records' and 666 Entertainments Slaughterfest III in Canberra, Sydney and Newcastle).
