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."

Pig Destroyer Australian Tour!!!!!!!

Posted by Lachlan

Pig DestroyerDudes. Man. Dude man. Fuck yes. Fuck fuck fuck yes.

Most of you have probably already heard, but PIG DESTROYER ARE TOURING AUSTRALIA!

We've been holding back on the announcement until a few more details were made public/official, but we are proud to hook you up with all the pig destruction related information you'll need. I'm excited like a little kid: these dudes are one of my favourite active grind bands and they really dont tour much within their own country let alone to our neck of the woods.

Terrifyer and Prowler In The Yard should both be considered for listings in the 10 best grind albums ever made. Scott Hull has an endless supply of sick riffs, and J.R. Hayes couples one of the most agonizing, violent and unique sounding vocals in grind with what I consider to be the best lyrics in the genre.

Pig Destroyer Less talk more info. I wish Agents of Abhorrence, The Kill or Captain Cleanoff were national supports. Congratulations too to Beyond Terror Beyond Grace for the Sydney support slot; you deserve it guys and I am insanely jealous.
