Give thanks to the metal gods, for Chicago death metal legends CIANIDE return for tonight's Black Saturday blowout! CIANIDE issued their stunning debut, The Dying Truth, in 1992, a punishing offering that was widely, widely acclaimed. The group's most recent effort, God's of Death, was issued by Hell's Headbangers Records last year and shows the outfit in fighting form, continuing to deliver straight-forward, no holds barred death metal. Bassist/vocalist MIKE PERUN angrily growls through each song like his life depends on it and appears ready to stomp on your head while he finishes his beer and in the words of Teufels Tomb when the LP is done, "you'll hit the replay button simply because this shit is so fucking cool you'll want to hear it again." Bruising bashers THE GATES OF SLUMBER deftly defy death on their latest volcanic eruption, Hymns of Blood & Thunder. Remember that time when Conan strapped your head to the Anvil of Crom, and then those three bearded, burley bastards bludgeoned it to a bloody pulp using a giant hammer forged of Wrought-Iommi? Well, it’s that time again as Indianapolis heaviest sons are here for your skulls. Kansas City brain-bashers ARES KINGDOM just released their newest record Veneration, an album of covers of SLAUGTHER LORD, SACRILEGE, MEFISTO, VULPECULA, NEPENTHE, RU DEAD? and otehrs. Come check out these maniacs, along with Chicago's own SUPERCHRIST, a trio who makes their Bottle debut on this darkest of all unholy days.
