West Coast death metal goliaths Exhumed recently entered the studio to record to the follow-up to 2011’s "All Guts, No Glory".

Expect to hear something from them on Relapse Records sometime next year.
Our favorite Scumdogs of the Universe GWAR have announced the newest member of their space pirate troup with the proclamation that long lost cousin of Flattus, Pustulus Maximus, has officially joined the band in the position of lead guitarist, and will join with the group on their upcoming "Fate or Chaos" tour. Pustulus offered his first words to the press with the following, "At this point I have nothing to say to the press, even though I am talking to you. I will let my guitar speak for itself. But let me add that I am bloodsworn to honor the legacy of the great Flattus and indeed the whole Maximus tribe. I didn't come here to f**k around. HAIL FLATTUS!"
So that's what's up! See y'all on Saturday! Horns up!
