BLIND TO FAITH: UK Tour With Nails Approaches / New Track Streaming
October 17th 2013
As BLIND TO FAITH prepares for the unveiling of their ‘Under The Heptagram’, today another new single from the EP is cast onto out into population. With a severely cavernous production, ‘Burial Of Mankind’ pounds the listener mercilessly with their metallic, punk-fueled audio beating until midway through, when things slow to a whispering crawl before building back up with a slow-motion dirge and unloading with the most upbeat attack on the impending thee-song release.
A video for the EP’s title track is out now and viewable below:
A389 Recordings will release Under The Heptagram on October 31st, a three-song 12” EP, mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (From Ashes Rise, Nails, Sleep) which will come with an etched B-side, in a limited run of 666 copies. Featuring members of Rise And Fall, Reproach and Dutch cult legends Insult, BLIND TO FAITH fuses crushing influences from metal giants Celtic Frost and vintage death metal with depraved hardcore anger and morose punk persuasion of GG Allin and Eyehategod. A true soundtrack for a burning world. Preorders for the EP are live HERE.
In one month BLIND TO FAITH will join American tyrants Nails on the Campaign For Elimination UK Tour, both bands set to invade Glasgow, Manchester, Bristol and London from November 13th through 16th.
BLIND TO FAITH Campaign For Elimination UK Tour w/ Nails:
11/13/2013 Classic Grand – Glasgow
11/14/2013 Star & Garter – Manchester
11/15/2013 The Exchange – Bristol
11/16/2013 Underworld – London
FULL OF HELL heads north to tour with KENMODE!!!
October 15th 2013
The latest barrage of live actions from the brood known as FULL OF HELL is now just a day from beginning as the band continues to inundate the planet with the chaos of their second LP, Rudiments Of Mutilation.
FULL OF HELL’s newest live entanglements with the humans will begin with a pair of shows in Pennsylvania — in York, tomorrow, Tuesday, October 15th and in Erie on Wednesday, the 16th — as the bandits trek north on their way to terrorize the majority of Canada’s largest metropolitan areas. For three weeks, they’ll deliver their caustic, crushing, noise-drenched blasting chaos and high-intensity live decimation to twenty-one cities across the Canadian map supporting KENMode. Post-tour FOH will tour their way across the Midwest with five solo dates on their way back to the East Coast.
This Winter FULL OF HELL will take Baltimore by storm alongside an incredible lineup of bands at the A389 Recordings ten-year anniversary bash, the weekend of January 17th and 18th. The two-day event will include Integrity (Systems Overload lineup reunion), All Out War, Bloodlet, Weekend Nachos, Noisem, Power Trip, Empire of Rats, In Cold Blood, Infest, Iron Reagan, Haymaker and more.
Recorded with Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations and mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate, Old, Phantomsmasher), Rudiments Of Mutilation captures the incredible conviction FULL OF HELL culminates live, an unstoppable and abrasive grindcore-infused, noise-heavy bastard of blastbeat-overloaded, demented hardcore. FULL OF HELL has been slaying audiences all year, preceding and following the release of the LP in June via A389 Recordings.
View the band’s unsettling visual depiction of the album’s scathing “The Lord Is My Light” video HERE and stream the entire Rudiments Of Mutilation LP HERE.

“Full of Hell want to open wounds however they can. The four-piece is so focused on delivering bile-soaked fury that they’ll use nearly anything at their disposal. While most of the tracks are acrid flashes of grind and powerviolence, there are still treks through squeamish noise and torturous hardcore. Seems like there’s always new releases by these guys, but this is the best I’ve heard so far.” – Decibel
“…Rudiments of Mutilation is an incredible album that should not go unheard. It is sick, unnerving, excellently established, moody, violent, and one of the best damn records that will be put out this year. You want dark? Here it is motherfuckers. Eat it up. 9.5/10″ – Metal Injection
“…this is the band’s finest work to date and as a statement, Rudiments truly serves as a moving monument to the inevitability and eternality of human suffering. 10/10″ – American Aftermath
“Rudiments of Mutilation is shapeless, above all portentous and one of 2013′s best records, while without question being Full of Hell at their best. Listen and prepare to numb your mind.” – Cvlt Nation
