CANNIBAL CORPSE Frontman Interviewed In Helsinki (Video)

Marine Crepiat of Stalker magazine conducted an interview with vocalist George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher of Florida-based death metal veterans CANNIBAL CORPSE when the band played at Nosturi in Helsinki, Finland on February 11. You can now watch the chat in two parts below.

CANNIBAL CORPSE will release a box set to commemorate their 25th anniversary: “Dead Human Collection: 25 Years Of Death Metal”. The box contains: all 12 full-length studio albums in a 12-CD foldout case with new artwork, “Torturing And Eviscerating Live” on CD and LP picture disc recorded in Tampa, Florida in 2010 and Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2012, plus new exclusive images by Vince Locke, 12″ x 12″ graphic prints of all 13 original album covers, and a 2013 CANNIBAL CORPSE calendar. The box will be in stores on March 16 and will be available for pre-order soon, along with the previously announced series of CANNIBAL CORPSE picture discs, at metalblade.com/cannibalcorpse.

After a bloody successful maiden voyage in 2012, Decibel magazine is doubling down on veteran star power for their second annual national tour. This spring, the plague spreads as Decibel brings you three living legends of death metal and grindcore: the preeminent gore institution CANNIBAL CORPSE; rabble-rousing U.K. grind icons NAPALM DEATH, and NYDM stalwarts IMMOLATION.

While occultism permeated last spring’s inaugural Decibel tour — featuring exclusively European headliners in BEHEMOTH, WATAIN, THE DEVIL’S BLOOD and IN SOLITUDE — they looked (mostly) to North America for this year’s unholy assemblage. Three of Decibel‘s favorite underground powerhouses will take on this year’s rotating opening slot: demented Bay Area death-grinders CRETIN, Canadian tech-prog upstarts BEYOND CREATION and Beltway grind/powerviolence crushers MAGRUDERGRIND. And the time is ripe to see the new bleed into the old: three of the six artists performing are expected to have new records detonating during the tour.

Kicking off in May, this year’s Decibel Magazine Tour gauntlet will last a full week longer than its 2012 counterpart, spanning over 30 North American dates. Presented by Metal Blade, IndiemerchStore.com, Nuclear Blast, Lace Pickups, Century Media and Season Of Mist, the 2013 Decibel Magazine Tour will bring together the kind of globally-renowned, boundary-pushing innovators that have made it possible for the magazine to continue thriving for over 100 issues. Coming off a tour noted for BEHEMOTH frontman Nergal‘s triumphant return to the States following his battle with leukemia — which culiminated in an explosive sold-out closing gig in New York City — Decibel had no choice but to go bigger and even more badass.

DORO PESCH In New York City: Video Interview, Performance Footage

Phil Fiumano of New York Rocks conducted an interview with German metal queen Doro Pesch when she played at B.B King Blues Club & Grill in New York City on February 4. You can now watch the chat below. Also available is footage of the New York City performance.

Doro was forced to cancel tonight’s (Tuesday, February 12) concert at The Token Lounge in Westland, Michigan due to illness. As per doctor’s orders, Doro is required to rest her voice after suffering from a sinus and throat infection for the last few days.

Doro‘s latest album, “Raise Your Fist”, sold 585 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 65 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

In a recent interview with Lords Of Metal, Doro stated about her expectations for “Raise Your Fist”, Doro said, “I will be very happy when the fans say they love the record; that’s the most important for me. I really don’t keep up with numbers, which are, in my opinion, great to talk about afterwards. It’s nice if we will be able to make the charts again, but to me, those kind of things don’t really matter. Much more important is that the fans dig the songs in a live situation and, since we already played ‘Raise Your Fist’ several times live, the first signs are very positive.”
