And Hell Followed With Reveal Story Behind 'Proprioception'
April 28, 2010
Slated for North American release on June 29th, 'Proprioception' is the Earache Records debut of And Hell Followed With - the Detroit deathcore [Really? - Ed.] band who's sheer heaviness is straight out of the depths of hell itself. Filled with incredible displays of technical prowess over memorable songs that are reminiscent of old school death metal giants like Deicide. However, unlike most other acts of their ilk, much care has been given to crafting a dark, fully formed story that ties all of the songs together.

According to vocalist, Nick Holland:
"Following a dark story of gruesome imagery and gothic thematics, 'Proprioception' is a telling of despair and misery in the loss of one girl's hope in herself and the world around. Battling horrific images in her head throughout the progression of a severe drug addiction, said protagonist battles her own sanity and morality. The first three quarters of the album are each of her visions, each becoming more gruesome then the last while simultaneously becoming more and more realistic.

"When her last vision pertains to most contemporary human loss of compassion and care, she battles morality and logic as she struggles to find a reason to live. The last quarter of the album deals with the human desire to possess reason and meaning in existence and the sometimes seemingly illogical decision to carry on in what can appear to be a futile up-hill battle.

"The word 'Proprioception' means that the particles in the brain, without cognizant process, can understand(in more of a sense of programming then conscious thought) their relative positioning and worth/meaning in the universe around due to their comprehension of said programming(with or without a theological explanation of origin). The word reflects our desire to search for and understand our meaning and place in the world, even down to the smallest particles in our body possessing this desire.

"'Proprioception' is a story of battling hopelessness in the struggle for meaning, a struggle that we all have or will endure in our lives. End.

Quite a mouthful, huh?"

And Hell Followed With
are releasing their Josh Wichman-produced Earache debut, 'Proprioception' (featuring art by Godmachine) in North America on June 29th. Pre-order it along with some killer shirts and special merch bundles at this location.

And Hell Followed With

The song is just one piece of the puzzle that will unravel the story of 'Proprioception'.

Burning The Masses Announce New Album, Post New Track
April 22, 2010
As the oversaturated deathcore scene becomes even more diluted with each passing day, a new group of likeminded individuals are taking things in a new direction by pushing the boundaries of precision, speed and technicality to inhuman levels. This group is better known as the San Diego based quintet, Burning The Masses, whose debut offering, 'Mind Control', could be best described as a sledgehammer to the face [or a snoozefest for those looking for something more unique than another run of the mill deathcore band - Ed].

Burning The Masses
will release their much anticipated new album, 'Offspring of Time', on July 20th through Mediaskare Records. This album blends the best elements of Between The Buried And Me, Cannibal Corpse and Necrophagist [Seriously!? LOL!- Ed.], so head over now to www.myspace.com/burningthemasses to check out the scathing new track "Resonance of The Foul" and access many specially priced pre-order package deals, which are limited, so be sure to get your orders in now.

The group will also be spending the spring touring throughout North America with And Hell Followed With, Knights of The Abyss and Those Who Lie Beneath. Their complete tour routing can be found on their MySpace page.
