BLACK COBRA Ready to Hit the Road with THE SWORD

BLACK COBRA will be hitting the road in support of their upcoming album, Feather And Stone. The eight-track assault showcases the bands’ exploration of gritty hardcore/sludge depravity since their previous outing, Bestial (once thought untouchable), will be unleashed upon humanity on October 30th.

JESU Forced to Cancel CD Release Show

According to INTRONAUT, JESU‘s CD release show at Spaceland in Silverlake, CA (originally scheduled for 2/20/07) has been canceled due to customs issues. No word yet on whether or not the rest of the tour (with ISIS) has been affected.

INTRONAUT, who’s drummer Danny Walker is supposed to fill in on drums for JESU for the tour, was on the CD release show bill along with OXBOW. INTRONAUT have instead scheduled a free show the following day (Wednesday, 2/21/07) at Mountain Bar in Chinatown with OXBOW, LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH, and DAVID SCOTT STONE. View the show flyer here.

As previously reported, JESU‘s forthcoming new album, Conqueror, has been posted for streaming at this newly created website: http://www.jesuconqueror.com/
