Anger As Art Hubris Inc.Old School Metal Records Release: 5 February 2013
Ironclad Thrash Metallers ANGER AS ART have announced that new album Hubris Inc. will
be released on February 5th, 2013 on Old School Metal Records. ANGER OF ART founder
and Veteran of the Metal Wars Steve Gaines (Abattoir, Bloodlust, Tactics, Bitch, Dreams of
Damnation, Pagan War Machine) states that the band’s fourth album, which follows the wellreceived
Disfigure, offers the kind of vicious, memorably penned thrash/speed metal that fans
have come to expect without simply retracing the steps taken on previous albums.
Adding to the album’s immense appeal is a range of special guest appearances. “Rage and
Retribution” features Betsy Bitch on vocals, Jim Durkin (Dark Angel) on lead guitar and
Timothy Gaines (Stryper) on bass. Steve Nelson (Evil Dead) contributes backing vocals on “The
Evil You Create.” And last but certainly not least, “Speed Kills,” which features Mark Caro
(Abattoir) on lead guitar, was actually written for Abattoir back in 1984 and is performed by
all Abattoir members. It’s the last opportunity to ever hear a new Abattoir song! Hubris Inc.
is a 14-song juggernaut of rage, frustration, and devastating Thrash Metal!

UVIKRA Signs With badGod Musicbadgodmusic.com
Lithuanian progressive black/death metal act UVIKRA has signed with badGod Music.
Founded in September 2009, Uvikra is a one man black/death metal project hailing from Vilnius, Lithuania. The single and singular member (Loikav), has created an unorthodox sound. While brutal and grisly in its rawness, this sound is tempered with a subtle progressive element. Unnaturally glottal vocals add to the unworldly feel while lamenting the futility of earthly existence.
Uvikra has three releases to its credit. The first was the self-titled full-length released September 23, 2010. An EP, Patterns of Life, was released April 9 2011. Both of these releases are available for free download on Uvikra's Bandcamp site.
The most recent material, gathered together in the form of the full-length Bi, was originally released November 15, 2011. Currently available as a digital download on both the Uvikra and badGod music Bandcamp pages, it will see a proper physical release in early 2013.
Cover Art & Praise for Bi
"Muddled as it is, you can hear a unique sound taking shape on Bi, a wobbly, shape-shifting black metal full of dripping "tall" harmonies and hypnotic repetition, chromatic death metal guitars and bizarre free-form breaks. At times, Bi's circular riff patterns remind me of Demilich; at others, his odd harmonies and unhinged vocals recall Bergraven."
"The progressions on this record could not possibly have been conceived by a normal mind. I don't think a black metal [release]has evoked this sincere of a response from me ever. This is utterly bizarre and, by all accounts, brilliant." 5/5 - Northern Isolation
Loikav: Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Drums
