The Crinn plan to enter Signature Tone Studios to record Nuclear Blast debut in May

St Paul’s  technical/jazz metal wizards in The Crinn, recent signees to the prestigious international Nuclear Blast metal label, have checked in with a new update from the rehearsal space where they’re working to prepare their forthcoming NB-label debut Dreaming Saturn. As the guys said in a post at their blog, it’s been quite a while since they’ve “posted anything & played anywhere”, but just because we haven’t heard many new songs doesn’t mean The Crinn isn’t hard at work. They’ve finally finished the writing stage and are now ready to move to recording. The guys will move their operation to Signature Tone Studios in Minneapolis on May 15th to begin tracking with Adam Tucker with Zack Ohren at Castle Ultimate in Oakland, CA doing the mixing and Alan Douches at West West Side in New York doing the mastering. While we’re waiting until October 9th (the official release date) to get our hands on the album, the band was kind enough to post several videos from their writing sessions to give us a taste. We’ve posted the most recent one below for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

The Body Beneath releasing Rise of the Insidious with two shows this weekend

The Body Beneath

It’s not talked about nearly enough, but the Twin Cities have truly been a hotbed for some incredible technical death metal bands over the course of the last several years. Last year The Crinn were able to secure a recording deal with Nuclear Blast, earlier this year Iron Thrones self-released a new album to a national audience, and now the brutal death metal quintet known as The Body Beneath is poised to release a brand new EP of savage, shredding, blast-beat laden progressive death metal insanity. Rise of the Insidious is receiving a April 4th release via The Fifth Moon, and to support the release, The Body Beneath with be playing two shows – one at Station 4 on Friday and another at The Rox in St. Cloud on Saturday.

Rise of the Insidious is the first time that we’ve heard from The Body Beneath since their 2007 album Compelled to Suffer. Having now evolved far beyond being simply a With Dead Hands Rising off-shoot, The Body Beneath is sounding extremely confident and more capable than ever. Any hardcore influences are hard to detect on the preview tracks from Rise that are posted over at the band’s MySpace; instead its more of an onslaught of the most brutal sounds, taking cues from heavyweights like Hate Eternal, Krisiun, and Aborted. “Crushing all who oppose” is this band’s motto, and it’s an apt one. Really folks, this is some brutal metal!

LISTEN: The Body Beneath, “And the Sea Will Give Us Its Dead” (from Rise of the Insidious, available 4/4)
LISTEN: The Body Beneath, “A Flood of Red” (from Rise of the Insidious, available 4/4)
LISTEN: The Body Beneath, “Path of the Depraved” (from Rise of the Insidious, available 4/4) 

Be sure to take the opportunity to get your hands around the Rise of the Insidious this weekend at one of these shows. Underground death metal is a beautiful thing, and The Body Beneath will be surrounded by some fantastic local talent during these release shows. More information after the jump… Continue reading
