Hail DeathBlowing minds and eardrums since forming in 2007, BLACK ANVIL's third full-length album, aptly titled Hail Death, is their most epic and fully realized album to date. It's one of those rare releases that not only stays true to the band's roots but manages to transcend them in a way that works all of their seemingly disparate influences into an amalgam of heavy music that's as original as it is earth-shaking. The sonic fury was captured at Magpie Cage by J. Robbins of Jawbox, who, although best known for recording punk and post-hardcore acts, perfectly understood the band's creative vision. He's got a really good style of making records and I knew he would understand that we wanted to make this sound live and organic as opposed to tight and compressed, relays bassist/vocalist Paul Delaney, citing Kiss' Destroyer and Metallica's Master Of Puppets as inspiration. I wanted it to be a little more rock 'n' roll sounding because I felt the songs were a little bigger and structured. It tells a story from beginning to end and the recording reflects that. As such, the behemoth offering includes a bonus track: A BLACK ANVILed cover of Under The Rose from Kiss' iconic ninth studio recording, The Elder.
Hail Death wasn't an easy album to make and the band members' personal turmoil is reflected in every frenzied moment of the album. I went through a lot of stuff over the past year and it caused me to move and spend a year of my life in solitude, Delaney says, explaining that for twelve months he would sit in his room and pour all of his energy and inner chaos into these songs. This is our journey. I can honestly say that this is probably the most important thing I've ever done in my life, even if it never sees the light of day for some reason I'm insanely proud of it.1.

The Moment You Realize You're Going To FallFor over half a decade Black Light Burns has served as a pure creative and musical outlet for Limp Bizkit/ex-Marilyn Manson guitarist Wes Borland. And since its formation, fans have clamored to be part of the musical sideshow. BLB released their debut Cruel Melody in 2007 featuring Danny Lohner (NIN), Josh Eustis (Puscifer) and Josh Freese (Weezer, A Perfect Circle, Guns N' Roses, Devo) and went on to tour with Sevendust, Chevelle, and From First To Last, featuring Sonny Moore aka Skrillex.
BLB followed-up with 2008's Cover Your Heart And The Anvil Pants Odyssey, an LP/DVD of covers and B-sides. In 2009, after a year-long stint playing guitar for Marilyn Manson, Wes and Black Light Burns hit the road for an extended run with industrial powerhouse Combichrist, and contributed the track I Want You To.
BLB took a temporary hiatus while Borland stayed busy on a World Tour with the reformed Limp Bizkit until returning in 2012, to the delight of fans, with the track,It Rapes All In Its Path and the announcement of the forthcoming LP, The Moment You Realize You're Going To Fall. This is a really personal record for me, says Borland. I spent three years writing it and trying to find the right home, and I am confident it's the best Black Light Burns record yet.1.
