MACABRE To Release 'Murder Metal' In September

MACABRE are set to release their new full-length album, "Murder Metal", on September 23 through Season Of Mist Records. The album will be issued via a licensing agreement with Decomposed Records, an indie label owned and operated by the band and their management.

This release will be a continuation of the group's 1993 classic "Sinister Slaughter" and will contain a collection of bizarre tales about various murderers and killers from around the world in their own unique style.

Musically, MACABRE continue to experiment mixing classic folklore with metal, punk, jazz and of course nursery rhymes.

Once again MACABRE brought on Grammy award winner Neil Kernon (CANNIBAL CORPSE, QUEENSRŸCHE, JUDAS PRIEST) to record the opus. Chicago's MACABRE have been known as true pioneers, creating their murderous music for over 15 years. MACABRE are and always have been: Corporate Death - guitar and vocals, Dennis the Menace - drums and Nefarious - bass and vocals.

Following "Murder Metal" will be the highly anticipated re-release of the long out of print MACABRE classic "Grim Reality", which will include a newly re-mixed version of the entire release and the original 1986 recordings plus other surprises. The debut retail release of "The Macabre Minstrels" will also follow, exposing the world to murder metal unplugged. "The Macabre Minstrels" recordings are a truly innovative and twisted collection of songs.

Some of the tracks that will be included on "Murder Metal" will be "Acid Bath Vampire", "Werewolf Of Bedburg", "Jack The Ripper" and a new Fritz Haarman song sung entirely in German.

MACABRE are currently looking to put together diverse tour packages for Europe, North America and the world to support their new release.
