Chelsea Grin Land At #21 On Billboard Heatseeker's Chart
February 25, 2010
Salt Lake City Deathcore upstarts, Chelsea Grin, debuted at #21 on the Billboard New Artist Chart this week. The band moved over 1,500 copies of their debut full-length 'Desolation Of Eden' which was released last week on Artery Recordings. Chelsea Grin is the premiere artist on Artery, which is a new imprint of Razor & Tie Entertainment. The band is currently on tour with The Red Chord as well as Mychildren Mybride and Those Who Lie Beneath.
Guitarist Jaek Harmond comments from the road, "The tour is going great! We have had handful after handful of problems with our van, but the shows themselves are awesome. The experience touring with The Red Chord is doing us very well. They are teaching us a lot, and we definitely have noticed WAY more fans. We are very happy with the first week sales as well. We beat the original goal we had set and know we can do even better next time. We aren't happy settling on any number."
The band has also been making waves with media including a new review on AlternativePress.com which proclaimed of the band's music, "The rhythms aren't so much blast beats as tribal throbs, and the riffs come in slow like bombers above an unsuspecting city pre-dawn. The guitar solos aren't spurts of fretboard overstimulation; they're almost the opposite, slow-burning interludes of relative peace not unlike those played by Meshuggah's Fredrik Thordendal." Noisecreep.com (AOL Music) ran a feature as well saying, "The music on the band's debut, 'Desolation of Eden,' is just as street-fight vicious (as their name)."
Next up for the band is a national tour with Xtian metallers Impending Doom and Through The Eyes Of The Dead from April 9 to May 7. A full list of dates is available below.

Mychildren Mybride Release Video For 'On Wings Of Integrity'
February 23, 2010
In June 2008 a guy by the name of Mitchell Davis
) created and posted a parody video about the Usher
cologne fragrance and living the day in the life of the rapper on YouTube. In his video he wondered if a band like Mychildren Mybride
had their own fragrance, and what his day would be like. After finding out about the video, the band reached out to Mitchell
and an instant friendship was formed.
They both agreed that it would be amazing to do a full video for "On Wings of Integrity
" and take his original concept and continue the story. Mychildren Mybride's
video "On Wings Of Integrity
" features Mitchell
living a day in the life of the band and the MCMB
fragrance. The video debuted online on February 16th with over 60,000+ hits within 18 hours.

A Glasgow smile (also known as a Chelsea grin or Chelsea Smile) is a nickname for the practice of cutting a victim's face from the edges of the mouth to the ears: the cut - or its scars - form an "extension" of what resembles a smile. Sometimes to further hurt or even kill the victim, he or she would then be stabbed or kicked, most notably in the stomach (or in case of kicking, the groin), so that the face would be ripped apart when the victim screamed. The practice originated in the Scottish city of Glasgow, which gave it its name. It also became popular in Chelsea, London (where it is known as a "Chelsea grin") and other areas of Britain, for gangs hoping to leave a message to rival gang members.
In the murder of the Black Dahlia, it was noted that the body was given a Glasgow smile.
