(NEW YORK, NY) - BLACK LABEL SOCIETY has been announced as this year's headliner for the 2014 REVOLVER GOLDEN GODS TOUR, presented by EPIPHONE. The tour will kick off the second week of April and finish up in early June. Supporting acts are set to be announced soon.
The band, led by guitar icon Zakk Wylde recently announced the release of "Catacombs of the Black Vatican," their highly anticipated new LP due out April 8th, 2014. In addition to the album art and track listing, BLS released their first all new single titled, "My Dying Time," heard here.
Zakk Wylde recently appeared on VH1 Classic's That Metal show and stopped by The Artie Lange show while in NYC to talk all things "Catacombs of the Black Vatican."
The Revolver Golden Gods Tour follows up last year’s Road to the Golden Gods Tour, which was headlined by STONE SOUR, and like that trek, it ties into the Revolver Golden Gods, America’s only hard-rock and heavy-metal award show. The details of the 2014 edition of that show will be announced shortly.
"Catacombs of the Black Vatican" is the first all new LP from BLS since "The Order of the Black" was released in 2009, which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
The band recently announced "An Evening With Zakk Wylde," a 13-city Canadian tour across Canada featuring intimate versions of some of the band's most popular songs, as well as songs from Wylde's best-selling solo album "Book of Shadows."
Since their late nineties inception, Black Label Society, formed by guitar legend Zakk Wylde, has been at the forefront of their genre. Their taste for hard riffs and blazing solos has resulted in a slew of hugely successful albums and a reputation as one of the most powerful live bands of their generation.
Zakk Wylde, who has been called one of the true guitar heroes in modern history, served as Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist for over 20 years in addition to his work with BLS. This collaboration led to a string of multi-platinum albums, including Osbourne’s biggest selling "No More Tears," for which Wylde wrote all the music.
In addition to holding Guitar World Magazine's MVP four years straight Wylde has been bestowed with such accolades as "Best Rock Guitarist" from Guitar Player,  "Metal Guru" from the recently held Classic Rock awards in the UK, "Golden God” by Metal Hammer, the “Best Guitarist” Award from Revolver Magazine. Wylde has proven time and time again that his songwriting, guitar prowess, and on-stage persona, along with his larger-than-life personality, have made him a force to be reckoned with.
Black Label Society continues to enthrall fans around the globe, and "Catacombs of the Black Vatican" is another incredible piece in the band's catalog.

Pretty darn interesting show for you. We had on the show Donny Hillier, frontman from the band Trauma. We talked about the days in which Cliff Burton was in the band and the revitalization of the band Trauma.  Jim Dofka called in and we talked metal, Dofka music, tranny’s and so much more. A real eye opener for Jim, and a funny one! Radchad was given a call and we talked briefly of Day 2 at NAMM. Ran a pre-recorded interview with Soulfly’s mainman Max Cavalera. We also tuned into the Classic Metal Show as they were interviewing Anthony Esposito of Pisser/Ace Frehley

Top 15 of 2013 - WeLoveMetal.com 

"Eighteen tracks of sheer attitude and pissed off mentality have never sounded so good from my speakers."[8.5/10] - WithGuitars.com

"If you seek out a band that clearly carries on the Tradition and mettle might of D.R.I., SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, SICK OF IT ALL, AGNOSTIC FRONT, S.O.D., and their ilk, then look for this spawn of the youth brigade to leave their indelible mark: a damn nasty adrenaline overdose - a true sign of bad religion - even after birth and before death."
[8/10] - MetalTemple.com

"I Blame You is a superb debut that will put Birth A.D. right in the crosshairs of metalheads starving for a group that simply doesn't care who they piss off with the opinions they bring into the music."[9.5/10] - Apochs.net

EXHUMATION: Hymn to your God Out on Dunkelheit Produktionen

EXHUMATION: Hymn to your God Out on Dunkelheit Produktionen
Indonesian death horde has given worldwide release to their full-length debut, Hymn to your God, through Dunkleheit Produktionen.
Album track "The Apotheosis" is streaming at this location.
Death metal maniacs are tired of bands who fake it. Some bands offer nothing but merciless rage with little to no substance behind the ire, while others attempt to pass off an unfinished and contrived style or concept. Some bands try to be progressive, while others show off a fake old-school-attitude. EXHUMATION, a young, talented and dedicated group of warriors from Indonesia, commits none of these atrocities. This is a band that delivers a rolling and balanced brand of death metal with the right amounts of melody, anger, concept and great riffing. EXHUMATION strives for independence from their influences and, most importantly, identity.

Their music presents an irresistible honesty, is thoroughly powerful yet always sticks to its own roots by citing the Asian origin. Death metal gourmets will be satisfied and fans of the likes of VADER, HATE or MORBID ANGEL will lick their fingers. This album comes with an excellent cover of "Ritual," from Canada's Ross Bay Cult legends BLASPHEMY!


1. All Seeing Eye 
2. The Apotheosis 
3. Parasites and Enemies
4. Omnipotent 
5. Dominion 
6. Hymn to your God 
7. Ritual (Blasphemy cover) 

EXHUMATION hails from Yogyakarta, Indonesia and formed in 2008. Heavily influenced by the darkest depth of epic Death Metal hordes, such early Morbid Angel, which were so flawlessly different from the Swedish-styled Death Metal so many others aped. Gaps, Gre and Unan created this band as the founding fathers, with Punto joining in 2010. With his addition, the band had found a vocalist demonic enough to fit the bill. The band developed over time, despite the lack of a stable drummer, until 2011 when Agung joined and completed the horde. Their legion assembled, EXHUMATION was finally able to make their first ritual, a three-way split with allies Nocturnal Kudeta and Goddess of Fate. Shortly afterward, work began on their full-length debut, Hymn to your God.
