Levi/Werstler Post New Track, Exclusive Video Online
April 13, 2010
DAATH guitar titans, Eyal Levi and Emil Werstler, have teamed up with Guitar World Magazine to present a series of exclusive video shorts and transcriptions for a number of tracks from their highly acclaimed new, all instrumental collaboration, Levi/Werstler 'Avalanche of Worms' on Magna Carta Records on April 20th. This special series kicked off yesterday with the worldwide exclusive post of the track, "Loathsome Little Fiend," online coupled with the supplemental elements listed above. Check it out now at this location.

Werstler
further states:"Today we debut the track "Loathsome Little Fiend" and a transcription of its arpeggiated solo break from our upcoming Magna Carta release 'Avalanche of Worms'. Within the next couple of months, we'll be contributing videos on various topics that are worthy of checking out or potential ideas that can assist you in opening doors creatively. We are excited to have the chance to throw these concepts your way because we have been avid readers of Guitar World for quite some time. So, without further ado, here is the first contribution of the Levi/Werstler Guitar World series."

The duo has teamed with legendary drummer Sean Reinert (Cynic, ex-Death) to deliver a commanding sonic statement. Both accomplished guitarists, their interplay allows Levi's compositional style and Werstler' virtuosic guitar abilities to complement each other fully. Reinert proves yet again to be unparalleled in his intensity and musicality on drums. This unique alchemy prevents this album from being classified under any one genre.

'Avalanche of Worms'
is a culmination of years of dedication and the freedom to see a vision come to fruition. Combining Eyal Levi's compositional prowess and the virtuosic force that is Emil Werstler has created a metal masterpiece. Waves of sound will crash over listeners during an intensely orchestrated assault on the senses. 'Avalanche of Worms' is innovative, unique and the true definition of metal.

Daath Guitarists Issue Update On All Things Daath Related
February 18, 2010
Extreme metal at its very best, plain and simple, is what the Atlanta based quintet Daath delivered on their highly acclaimed latest album, 'The Concealers'. Currently the group is more determined, energized, and focused than ever before to continue expanding upon their unique, uncompromising and dynamic sound. For those previously uninitiated, feel free to head over to www.myspace.com/daath to see what they are all about.

The band had this statement: "Unpredictability and chaos are two themes defining the times we live in. Everything about Daath's career has been married to these themes. We've accepted them as beautiful and have learned to love the ride. Despite the chaos there is one thing that is for certain: we will always be pushing the boundaries of what we do. This fall we will bring you a record you are not expecting to hear from us. This venture will have more to offer than our previous efforts. We are committed to always improving our sound, our songs, and our playing. It will not be said that our next record will be the most brutal sound we've created yet, or that it's going to be the our heaviest to date. That would be cliche. What you can expect to hear are really catchy, intense songs with soaring riffs that will encourage one to hit the repeat button. Arena sized choruses that will remain in your head whether you like it or not. Innovative, ground breaking solos. Bashing - blasting - yet dynamic drumming. An uncompromised low end paired with unique synth work. Collectively, these elements direct the left turns we have always chosen to take. This will not be The Hinderers Part II, The Re-Concealers, or The Conhinderers. This will be a brand new sound.

"Many important facts have happened over the past year. The first being that we put out 'The Concealers', which we consider to be the first true Daath record. The second fact being that we toured without Kevin Talley. Kevin needed a sabbatical in 2009 and we gave it to him. We took some fantastic fill-ins and had some legendary times. Each one of those tours was great in their own regard. We played in front of some brand new audiences in brand new places and hung out with some of our closest friends. We learned our songs go beyond who is in the band. We also learned we prefer to play them with Kevin. To clear up any confusion, Kevin Talley is still in Daath.

"Another highlight from the past few months is Emil Werstler and Eyal Levi signing a deal with Magna Carta records to do a series of instrumental releases. Joined by drummer Sean Reinert of Cynic, artistic limits were pushed into territories only previously dreamed of. There's an element of boundary-less music on the first Levi / Werstler release (due out Spring 2010). We've never had the chance to really explore this with Daath. What was learned from doing this record is the need to be making music which pushes our boundaries constantly. The next few years will be marked by many releases from our camp via Daath and Levi / Werstler; as well as various projects still in the planning stages. There is too much music in each of our psyches to be limited to one album every two years. This may work for some artists, but not for us.

"While this recent undertaking may seem elaborate and obscure; we assure Daath fans on every level, we have total control of our art. We look forward to bringing you the album of our collective career this fall."

Click on the link below to check it out and don't miss the band on tour all summer long.

http://www.metalsucks.net/2009/07/01/exclusive-world-premier-daaths-new-video-for-day-of-endless-light/

Eyal Levi (guitars) further comments: "We are so excited about our new vision of artistic glory that is better known as the video for 'Day OfEndless Light.' I've said in the past that I didn't want us to create just another metal video with five dudes jamming in an abandoned building or warehouse. We wanted a video that was more of a visual work that just carried a dark and slick vibe and could be considered an animated work of art. Director Robin Fuller and art director Jorden Haley are the kind of people I need to always be working with.

"We are currently a week into the 'Conquer and Curse' tour, which features our brothers from Goathwore. I can't say enough how much I admire and love this band. Headlining will be Abigail Williams and the first two bands will be Abysmal Dawn and Success Will Write Apocalypse Across The Sky. We also just confirmed that we're touring Europe with Chimaira, Unearth, and Throwdown this fall! I don't need to explain why this is such an amazing tour but let me tell you, we are fucking STOKED to be a part of it! This also will be our second time through Europe with Unearth and can't wait to share the road with those model human beings."
