Deicide is an American death metal band formed in 1987. Their first two albums, Deicide and Legion, are ranked second and third place in best-selling death metal albums of the SoundScan era.
Deicide has received considerable controversy relating to their albums and lyrics, which include vehement anti-Christian themes, such as "Death to Jesus", "Fuck Your God", "Kill the Christian", "Behead The Prophet" and "Scars of the Crucifix", among others.
With a relentlessly brutal sound and uncompromisingly blasphemous lyrics, DEICIDE helped set the standards for extreme metal and have maintained those standards ever since.
In 2012 SUFFOCATION will chosen to be inducted into the Long Island Hall of Fame. They will be celebrated alongside such Long Island Music Legends like Billy Joel, Joan Jett, Twisted Sister and more. This is a huge accomplishment for SUFFOCATION as well as the genre they helped formed.
SUFFOCATION are currently in the finishing stages of their upcoming new album entitled Pinnacle of Bedlam. The record was produced by the band and tracked at Full Force Studios in New York by longtime collaborator Joe Cincotta. The mixing and mastering of the album is set to be handled this time around by world renowned producer/engineer Zeuss (HATEBREED, ARSIS, SUICIDE SILENCE). Pinnacle of Bedlam will feature 10 genre-defining-bone-crushing tracks and also marks the return of drummer Dave Culross, who played with the band previously on their Despise The Sun EP.
The new release is slated for February 2013 on Nuclear Blast Records. Visit www.facebook.com/suffocation for more information and all the latest news on the release. All hail the reigning kings of brutality!
Broken Hope was formed in 1988 by guitarist/chief-lyricist-songwriter, Jeremy Wagner and original vocalist, Joe Ptacek as friends in high school. In 1989 and 1990, Broken Hope recorded two demo tapes and secured a recording contract with an independent record label. In 1991, Broken Hope's debut album, "Swamped In Gore" was released worldwide, launching the band out of the underground and into the mainstream. *Swamped In Gore was the first digitally-recorded death-metal album.
After BROKEN HOPE's last album (1999's "Grotesque Blessings") and world tours, Wagner cleaned house and put BROKEN HOPE into "metal hibernation" in 2000. On January 20, 2010, original BROKEN HOPE vocalist Joe Ptacek tragically committed suicide. He was only 37 years old. Before his death, Ptacek met with Wagner and Glass and discussed the resurrection of BROKEN HOPE. With Ptacek's death, Wagner and Glass took time off to reconsider their next moves.
In 2012, BROKEN HOPE signed with Hard Impact Management and vowed to make BROKEN HOPE a full-time monster. Wagner and Glass recruited longtime friend and GORGASM vocalist Damian Leski as their new frontman and shortly after marked their return on the highly successful Carnival Of Death tour. BROKEN HOPE's high-intensity concerts received top praise, and confirmed the band was back and more rabid than ever.
BROKEN HOPE 2013 is:
Damian Leski - Vocals
Jeremy Wagner - Guitars
Shaun Glass - Bass
Chuck Wepfer - Lead Guitars

In 1992 Bryan Ugartechea, Tony Freithoffer and Ricky Myers started what was to become one of California's most brutal death grind bands.

During the move the band parted ways with bassist/vocalist Bryan Ugartechea. New members Matti Way (vocals) and Eric Flesy (bass) were taken on to fill Ugartechea's dual role.

Rising from the 90's "The Canadian Occult Legend (BWBK)" have sailed against all storms and wars to conquer all countries they landed under heaven and earth. It is not without difficulties that the pioneers of the dark genre have kept the machine alive, but nevertheless, their faith and strong belief in the band's message has succeeded to overcome the worst and beyond. Since the beginning of the new millennium, the cult of the Book of the Dead keeps spreading around the world, taking the fans by surprise like a disease. Renowned for its live presence and intensity, the Occultist trinity aims for nothing less than reaching every area of the living world, doing what they do best - rocking the stage.
The "Pharaoh of Gods" album became a classic a few years after its release. Now considered to be too advanced for is time, mixing brutal dark metal with almost "new age" ambiances. As for "Return of the Witch", which became the first worldwide release, bringing the band to tour the Old continent for the first time.
Previous releases are not to be forgotten, starting with the "Morbid Ritual" demo, which was nationally acclaimed. "The Silver Key" EP gained attention from labels in the US and overseas, especially with the title track song. Last but not least, the extremely tribal "The Sacred Medicines": an American Native concept featuring "Red Bull" singers from Western Canada's Cree Nation on the title track.
Necronomicon originally comes from the deep northern part of the Canadian province of Quebec, called the "Fjord of Saguenay". The band later relocated in the city on Montreal, now well known for the quality of is metal scene, to ensure a more prosperous future for the band… Something that would've been impossible in their remote Nordic home region.
Since the beginning, the band always blended in mixing ambiances with extreme metal, along with atmospheric passages using narration and angelic female voices, exotic instruments and various orchestrations. Although every album has its own theme, it is also part of the grand concept of the band itself.
Their hard work and renowned growth brought them to share the stage and tour with several well established bands such as Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Behemoth, Morbid Angel, to name a few, as well as invitations to well renowned festivals such as Inferno (Norway), Heavy MTL (Canada), Ragnarok (Germany), the Barge to Hell metal cruise and more.
Stopping at nothing, the Eternal trio led by the Dark One, Rob "The Witch", is now working with the well-established record label "Season of Mist". This is the call upon the opening of the gateway for their new offspring… "Rise of The Elder Ones": The darkest; meanest album created for one purpose only –conquer everything from darkness onto the light.
