Steve Tucker of Morbid Angel: Hessian Session EP #333

Direct MP3 Download – Steve Tucker of Morbid Angel – Hessian Session #333


Tonight on Hessian Session, in the second hour of the show (10pm CST,) Hesher welcomes Steve Tucker of MORBID ANGEL and WARFATHER!

Legendary death metal unit MORBID ANGEL unleashed their ninth studio album on December 1st via Silver Lining Music and in Japan via JVC. Titled Kingdoms Disdained, the record reunites founding guitarist Trey Azagthoth with bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker.

Just one play of MORBID ANGEL’s searing Kingdoms Disdained, and you’ll realize that this is the only true current aural document of a world sinking into uncharted despair. “The album title says it all,” says Tucker, “everybody’s fed up and nobody can figure out how to fix it. We’ve got all these miniature wars in neighborhoods, cities, countries, and we’ve got people with varying opinions causing chaos, yet everyone is doing what they feel is right. Which all makes it feel like the world has reached a point of utter madness and confusion.”

As if fate constructed the moment, these forefathers of death metal found themselves witnessing the storm’s eye as they prepared to create Kingdoms Disdained, deciphering it with their ferocious music via long-held Sumerian-based beliefs. “It’s been written but nobody pays attention, because we erase our history,” furthers Tucker. “We don’t understand much about the Sumerian texts because things got erased, buried, and broken up. And for years, Trey and I talked a lot about the idea of those Gods waking up and coming back to show us that they’re angry.”

Recorded at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida and produced by Morbid Angel with Erik Rutan (Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal, Six Feet Under, Belphegor), Azagthoth, Tucker and drummer Scotty Fuller crated eleven pieces of devastatingly dynamic death metal. Compositions such as “Garden Of Disdain,” “Architect And Iconoclast,” and “The Pillars Crumbling” supremely illustrate Azagthoth’s incredible creative alchemy with Tucker as well as his own incomparable guitar work.

“We’re always trying to paint pictures; to create images,” notes Tucker, “and I think this album is a fair image of the world today, but taken from a different perspective; the perspective of those Gods who built this, who may be resting now but are starting to wake up.”

Kingdoms Disdained also features artwork courtesy of Irish mixed-media artist Ken Coleman, who created a series of pieces that further augment the stories being told. Don’t walk meekly around the edge of Kingdoms Disdained, go all-in on the journey and Morbid Angel’s intense importance to these times will be crystal clear.

MORBID ANGEL’s Kingdoms Disdained will be available on CD, vinyl and digital formats. Preorders are currently available at THIS LOCATION. A limited-edition boxset will be available to order shortly.


Wreck your neck with ACR Proprietor, Producer and Host, HESHER, for live metal radio, every Saturday night at 9pm CST on ALTERNATE CURRENT RADIO.

Derek Engemann of SCOUR: Hessian Session EP #324

Direct Download (MP3) – Derek Engemann of SCOUR – Hessian Session #324


Tonight on Hessian Session, in the second hour of the show (10pm CST,) Hesher welcomes Derek Engemann of SCOUR and Cattle Decapitation!

Forged in 2015, SCOUR’s debilitating fusion of black metal, grindcore, and thrash made its debut with the ferocious single “Dispatched.” The band’s debut EP, Grey, was released the following year via Anselmo’s own Housecore label. Just before a crushing performance at Hellfest Open Air, which featured a cover of the Pantera classic “Strength Beyond Strength,” the band recorded their Red EP at Nodferatu’s Lair with Steve Berrigan (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod, Haarp, Classhole, etc.) at the helm. The record was once again mixed and mastered by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation, Cobalt, Khemmis) at Flatline Audio.

Red, the blistering new EP from extreme metal supergroup SCOUR. SCOUR is the brainchild of Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Superjoint), John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation), Chase Fraser (Animosity, Decrepit Birth), and Adam Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Misery Index). Their latest manifestation serves as part two of a three-part EP series.

Red is available on CD, digital, and vinyl formats. Physical orders are currently available at this LOCATION. Desirers of the digital edition, go HERE.

SCOUR:
12/15/2017 The Rail Club – Fort Worth, TX [tickets]
12/16/2017 Come And Take It Live – Austin, TX [tickets]
