Massacre Records is proud to release the sophomore album from German/Italian melodic metal outfit LOVE.MIGHT.KILL in North America this November.
Featuring drummer Michael Ehré (Firewind, Uli Jon Roth, Metalium) and the brilliant singer Jan Manenti, LOVE.MIGHT.KILL appeared virtually out of nowhere in 2011 with their Brace For Impact debut, an album which perfectly combined the enthusiasm of a first appearance with the experience of a long songwriting career, instantly winning over a solid fanbase within the European hard rock/power metal scene.
One year later, LOVE.MIGHT.KILL are about to release their second opus, 2 Big 2 Fail, to North American audiences, following its very recent release in Europe. Boasting nearly an hour of incredibly hard-hitting, melodic power metal with a dozen anthems, 2 Big 2 Fail was produced by Michael Ehré, as with their first album. Being around for years as the drummer in bands like Gamma Ray, Firewind, Metalium or with artists like Uli Jon Roth, Matt “Gonzo” Roehr, Vinnie Moore and Kee Marcello, Ehré has made a strong impact in the national and international scene. The songs were then mixed and mastered by Markus Teske (Spock´s Beard, Saga, Vanden Plas) at his own Bazement-Studio.

WARBEAST Set to Release New Full Length Album ‘Destroy’ in Early 2013
Legendary Pantera, Superjoint Ritual and DOWN vocalist PHILIP ANSELMO and Housecore Records thrashers WARBEAST recently announced that they will be releasing a new split album entitled War of the Gargantuas. The split now has an official release date of January 8, 2013 and will include two songs from each artist. This album serves as the first release of any solo work by PHILIP ANSELMO during the span of his nearly 30-year legacy. Also, the two WARBEAST tracks on the split feature former bassist Alan Bovee before his amicable departure from the band. Since then, Dre Karst has joined on bass.
“This split is a glimpse into the future of both my solo project and ultimate thrash metallers WARBEAST. The title of the split is War of The Gargantuas and it is fitting on many levels because of our combined love for the 60’s Japanese film of the same name, the power of our combined musical output(s) and our humorous affection that plays out within each of our “Gargantuan” personalities,” states PHILIP ANSELMO. “Both WARBEAST and myself have full length LP’s that will be released shortly after this is released, but this split is unique musically. It is a time capsule; a loud pause ‘til we both release our full length products. Enjoy the destruction of music!”
“These two songs we have on War of the Gargantuas were the next level after Krush The Enemy,” states WARBEAST guitarist Scott Shelby. “They’ve been a staple in our set list for the last two years. These songs are a pure demonstration of our unique Texas thrash metal style.”
WARBEAST alsorecently announced the upcoming release of their second full-length album, Destroy. The album is scheduled to be released in early 2013 via Housecore Records and is currently in the mastering stages. Stay tuned for more information on Destroy coming very soon.
