Unearth Announce Tours w/ Black Dahlia Murder, 36 Crazyfists
April 21, 2010
After wrapping up their headlining run with the hugely successful Atticus Metal Tour II, Unearth are taking their show overseas. First, they'll conquer Japan, Australia and New Zealand with label mates, The Black Dahlia Murder. Once that run is over, the guys are taking what will be one of the longest flights ever to the United Kingdom for a European tour with 36 Crazyfists.

Unearth
vocalist Trevor Phipps comments: "What better way to spend our May and June than touring Japan, Australia and New Zealand with our buds in The Black Dahlia Murder and also hitting up much of Europe and the summer festivals with our boys in 36 Crazy Fists? I don't really see a point in trying to answer that question because there isn't a better answer. If you live in any of the places I mentioned, come on out, bang your heads, hit the pit, drink some beer and do some stupid shit. This is our last go around the World until 2011, so let's make this a rager for the ages. See you soon, World!"

Unearth's
most recent album, 'The March', is available everywhere now: iTunes, Amazon.com, MetalBladeStore.com. Recent www.MetalBlade.tv footage is available of Trevor Phips killing some time on tour playing Trials HD on Xbox Live Arcade - watch him conquer one of the levels now on MetalBlade.tv!

Obscura Drummer Launches New Website, Exclusive Tour Blog
March 7, 2010
Obscura drummer Hannes Grossmann has launched his personal website www.HannesGrossmann.com, offering customized online-video drum lessons. These lessons and instructional videos will also be made available via his YouTube channel and can be downloaded to any IPod or IPhone.

Grossmann commented on the site: "I want to give some insights to my playing and show young metal and non-metal drummers new ways to increase their drumming skills and be able to practice efficiently. The practice methods I developed over the years allow me to learn anything that I want within a short time period. When I joined Necrophagist in 2003 I managed to increase my single stroke hand speed from 200 bpm to 240 bpm in four months! No matter what you want to learn - may it be hand or foot technique, speed, odd time signatures, timing, warm-ups or even songs from the bands I played with - you'll get the chance to learn it on my website!"

Check out Hans in Obscura's video for "The Anticosmic Overload" below.

Thrashing death anti-heroes THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER are set to release their first ever DVD, Majesty, this May. This side splitting peek into the hard working band's humor laced brand of daily life will have you smelling the funk of the van from coast to coast and keep you coming back for more.

Vocalist Trevor Strnad comments, “The Black Dahlia Murder DVD entitled Majesty is finally finished and ready to be unleashed on the world. Diehard fans will recognize that the title has been plucked from the chorus of Nocturnal. It was filmed and edited by our good friend/drinking partner Robbie Tassaro, whom we have worked with in the past for the filming of our ‘What A Horrible Night To Have A Curse’ video. Robbie is a hilarious man in himself, and probably the only person we could trust to really capture the essence of the band. Doing a DVD was something we were very apprehensive about... doing video stuff is always a risk when you can't afford the luxuries that the MTV darlings can... I mean look at the majority of death metal videos on you tube... the comments are all people laughing how cheesy they are. For Christ’s sake, look at our video for Funeral Thirst! That’s ghetto metal fabulous. All of our videos, good and bad, will be featured on the second disc of the dvd, along with a shows worth of intense live footage, captured from various locations throughout our Summer Slaughter tour and our romp in support of Children Of Bodom. The live footage is unbelievable looking... it absolutely blew me away the first time I watched. I think he really nailed the energetic atmosphere of our concerts... it makes me want to stage dive myself. The main disc is chock full with over two hours of backstage footage and will give our fans a deserved look into the BDM machine. See your favorite thrashers drink 'til they puke, eat til they puke, smoke weed 'til they puke, etc. The Pantera DVD was our model to strive for, as it’s the only metal DVD out there that warrants repeated viewings. Now that I have seen it a few times, I have had the semi painful realization that I am an alcoholic. I'll keep you posted on that as it develops.

Calling all thrashers! Behold the Majesty!”
