After years of DIY touring and lots of word of mouth, 2014 is a breakout year for Fallujah with a spot on Summer Slaughter and a well-recieved new CD. Guitarist Scott Carstairs hops on Skype to talk about writing, touring, and the band’s success after the jump.

Maryland is becoming somewhat of a mecca for extreme metal. Not only is Baltimore home to arguably the biggest annual metal festival in the U.S., Maryland Deathfest, but the state of Maryland has also bred some heavyweight metal bands of its own, including most notably Dying Fetus, Misery Index and Periphery. Whereas these bands respectively showcase the death metal, deathgrind and progressive metal Maryland has to offer, Condemn the Infected are seeking to tear out jugular veins and kill puppies with their crushing brand of brutal technical death metal, and it’s only a matter of time before their name appears alongside their fellow Maryland peers as another heavyweight.
Revocation are easily one of the site’s favorite bands collectively. Many of these writers listed their self titled record from last year in their “Best Of 2013″ list, and one writer even cites Chaos Of Forms as their favorite album of all time. Recently, the band completed their tour with Whitechapel, Devildriver, Rivers Of Nihil, Fit For An Autopsy, and Carnifex. I was back home and had the chance to stop by their show in Fort Lauderdale, so naturally I caught up with David to talk 7 string guitars, the new record, and Trick Daddy’s favorite seafood restaurant. Check out the interview in full, after the jump!
Summer Slaughter, the best metal package tour in the US, has finally announced its run of dates!

Get dates after the jump.
What might possibly be the most anticipated annual package tour has just announced the lineup for its 2014 iteration! Teased headliners Morbid Angel have been confirmed as well as Dying Fetus, The Faceless, Thy Art Is Murder, Goatwhore, Origin, Decrepit Birth, Within the Ruins, and Fallujah.
You may remember Summer Slaughter and the American tour-package that managed to rile the internet up by daring to change their direction and picking up Periphery and Animals As Leaders, alongside Cattle Decapitation and Revocation last year. Naturally, every mouth-breather and his brother took it as a personal insult and it resulted in some of the funniest and by extension saddest complaining I’ve ever seen on the internet. And that’s saying something.
Coming in hot off a triumphant battle with Leukemia and having a hit on his hands with the acclaimed new album The Satanist, Behemoth frontman Adam Nergal Darski must be feeling more invincible than ever before. The outspoken musician has made plenty of controversial statements in the past, but of course he’s bound to say something that will ruffle someone’s feathers sooner rather than later. We’re not even a week past The Satanist‘s release date and we already have a polarizing statement out of Nergal as he shares his distaste for the United States death metal scene.
It would seem 2014 is putting it’s best foot forward, with a ridiculous number of brilliant death metal releases all coming to light very early on in the year.
The next in line is Alterbeast, a Sacramento based group formerly known as the Gary Busey Amber Alert, signed to Unique Leader Records and are set to drop their debut full length Immortal on the 18th of March. The band recently dropped a new track by the name of ‘Flesh Bound Text‘ and, to be completely honest, I’m still picking pieces of my face out of the speaker cones.
Two years seems to be the standard between albums for most bands, but not for Pig Destroyer. The band rarely tours and gets together for new music pretty much whenever they feel like it. They all hold down day jobs, but guitarist Scott Hull is a busy enough man by himself, with the past year being filled with mixing/mastering jobs, Pig Destroyer shows, and working on FOUR new Agoraphobic Nosebleed records. We had to wait five years between the last two records, so until recently I wasn’t about to hold my breath for a new Pig Destroyer record for a while.
In a turn of events that has experts baffled and the internet in shock, it seems that complaining on the internet has actually, for the first time in recorded history, produced physically tangible results.
