AGATG Prepares To Embark On 'The Super Massive Fist' Tour
March 7, 2008
Santa Cruz extreme metal upstarts Arsonists Get All The Girls continues to tour in support of their critically acclaimed album 'The Game of Life'. The band will be joining Dead to Fall, Impending Doom and Sea of Treachery on a tour that will take them through the Midwest to the east coast, ending early in May.

Remi Rodberg (vocals) states: “Super massive fist! I hope to see fists flinging in the air and hitting things (not excluding my face) with your best HxC ballerina kick combo. A month on the east coast should be exhilarating. All the bands on this tour are sweeeeeetsauce and should be nothing but one helluva good time. We hope to see familiar faces and some new ones. Be sure to support the fist action when it comes to you.”

AGATG’s brand of musical insanity is unmatched both in its uncanny excessiveness and its unwillingness to veer toward any one genre. Try coming up with a name for this stuff yourself and you’ll find yourself lost in a sea of ships turned sharks, a victim of your own curiosity. In other words, it’s pretty much death metal, grindcore and a liberal dose of WTF is this.

It is this deviant line-up of protopervs and fire-loving ladies men that will make love to your ears alongside the fine chaps in Dead to Fall in the nation’s greatest cities, from Joplin, Missouri to Muncy, Pennsylvania. Playing tunes from their first Century Media release, 'The Game of Life', Arsonists Get All The Girls will put the sex in sextet whether you’re ready for it or not.

Winds Of Plague Announce New Keyboardist
February 4, 2008
Los Angeles Blackmetalcore upstarts Winds Of Plague are currently annihilating the masses across the U.S. as part the “Arthropodan Eroticism Tour” with Dead to Fall, Impending Doom and With Dead Hands Rising. This month-long trek kicked off their worldwide touring cycle for their much anticipated debut Century Media offering, 'Decimate The Weak', which is set for a Feb. 5th release. The group’s savagely brutal new track, “The Impaler,” has just been posted online at the band's Official Myspace page, so head over now to check it out.

Johnny Plague(vocals) states: “Winds Of Plague is pleased to announce the addition of ex-Abigail Williams keyboard player, Kristen Randall, into the band. We’re currently out on tour with Kristen and couldn’t be happier to announce her as a permanent member. The Dead To Fall tour has been amazing so far. Every city has showed us a lot of love and the crowds have gone insane. We are pleasantly surprised at how well the public is taking to our new material and we can’t wait for this new album to circulate because our live shows are just going to get more and more insane as people become familiar with the tracks.

'Decimate the Weak' is the end result of many months of undying work and dedication and we can’t wait for everyone to hear it. We feel this album will be a huge milestone for Winds Of Plague and it’s just a small taste of what is to come. ‘The Impaler’ is a personal favorite of mine. The song seems to have a very strong and violent energy from start to finish with an anthem of perseverance running through the lyrics. We’re playing a lot of material from the record in our live set, so come out to a show and have some fun.”

'Decimate The Weak' was recorded with Daniel Castleman (As I Lay Dying, A Love Ends Suicide) and mixed by the legendary Tue Madsen (Himsa, The Haunted).

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 1999
HOME TOWN: Chicago, IL
MEMBERS:
John Hunt (vocals)
Logan Kelly (guitar)
Aaron Nelson (guitar)
Chad M. Fjerstad (bass)
Tim Java (drums)

In naming their third album The Phoenix Throne, Dead To Fall managed to sum up the themes surrounding both their new songs and their lives. Weathering more than the usual number of line up changes through the years gives them remarkable insight into the nuts and bolts of reinvention and the challenge of continuing to grow musically while building a loyal fan base. The struggle to evolve is a rousing success by any terms: The Phoenix Throne is a quantum leap forward, stronger, more metallic and more ambitious than their previous work. While some of the players in Dead To Fall changed, the band steered a course to tried and true collaborators, choosing previous producer (Eric Rachel) and packaging artist (Paul Romano). Why fix what isnt broken? asks vocalist Jon Hunt, Eric understood where we had been musically and the progression we had undergone. The fantastic thing is he is able to tailor his sounds to the band, instead of imposing a trademark sound on each band that comes his way. As for Romano, Hunt explains, Pauls art walks the line between deceptively simple and elaborate. We love art that ties in with the other elements of the album, and no one is more detailed and thoughtful during the process.

Lyrically, Hunt broke new ground as well, with more conceptual lyrics and adventurous musicianship. In songs like Guillotine Dream, a six minute-plus opus that imagine the jarring thoughts of a condemned man awaiting execution. Doomed to Failure portrays two dreams clashing with catastrophic results; it is only when one is dead that realization that the constant struggle provided all power, but by then it is too late. Classically informed arpeggios throw sparks in the dark landscape while alternating vocal tones tell the story from two perspectives.

Chum Fiesta uses old school riffage and speedy double bass to tell the tale of a shark attack calls of Oh Shit as the sharks approach instill needed humor for a decidedly gory topic. The albums final track, Death and Rebirth brings its themes full circle, with lyrics like, In flame weve been reborn, a pure stronger power, a new oath we have sworn. Rachels suggestion to add something orchestral was embraced by the band, and Michael Romeo of Symphony X was recruited to create an epic piece of music that includes a full orchestra and choir. His work elevates the song to new heights, giving it the dignity and stateliness that the lyrics command, making it the perfect closer for the album.

Dead To Fall formed in 1999 in Chicago, Illinois. Their debut album, Everything I Touch Falls To Pieces garnered positive reviews in regional and national magazines. Dead To Fall toured in support with bands as diverse as The Red Chord and Malevolent Creation, setting the tone for their future projects while straddling the hardcore and metal worlds. In September 2004, Villainy and Virtue hit stores, and was immediately embraced by fans and press alike. Revolver Magazine put it best: Full of slab-like guitars and raging vocal growls, this brutish album will reach out of your speakers, beat you down, and steal your wallet. Tours with Napalm Death, Remembering Never and Most Precious Blood helped spread the word and Dead To Falls loyal fan base went on to buy 60,000 copies of their first two albums. Numerous line up changes took place over the years, making it hard for singer Jon Hunt to continue, but he has never been happier than in the current incarnation. I used to try to control every aspect of the band, I wasnt able to relinquish control. Now my band is more balanced and we are all contributors to making our vision a reality.
