With thrash coming out of the ears, here's what's going on in the pit this week!

BONDED BY THE UK: As Earache's very own Bonded By Blood have been support in the UK on past tours, including the Thrashing Like A Maniac, things have come full circle. Heading back over this time around the guys were headlining a number of shows with label mates and Canadian thrashers in Cauldron this past week for a short run. Following those tour dates, the guys will stay on the road with Fueled By Fire and Suicidal Angels in Europe until about mid-June.

DEVIL MUSIC?: No, my Mother doesn't think metal is Devil music, but it is indeed the name of the current side project involving the famous frontman himself Derrick Green of Sepultura. Along side with his Sao Paulo bandmates, Musica Diablo posted a new song online this past week as they are currently in the process of shopping for a European label. They will then embark on a European run as Green will have time off the from Sepultura. I'll be the first to say; this is news to me.

IS IT OUT YET?: With rumors circulating in the metal mill that a release date has been set for the unnamed, upcoming Slayer album rest assured it hasn't -- yet! With the finishing touches being made on the album, this will be the latest from Slayer prior to their 2006 release 'Christ Illusion'. Guys I'm just saying--- we're itching for some new stuff so we look forward to what will be available in the coming weeks.
