  • Spread The Metal Records Signs Israeli Grinders WHORECORE


        Canadian indie metal label, Spread The Metal Records is proud to announce its latest signing of Israeli death grinders WHORECORE for the vinyl and digital release of their new album 'Headless' this coming fall.

    "The Middle East is a largely neglected area of the metal world, and Whorecore has the potential to change that. They live in Israel, right in the middle of things that we've only heard stories about. That stuff changes you, and impacts the kind of music you write. Their album is heavy, aggressive, powerful and has a ton of heart. I couldn't be more proud to be associated with these guys." comments Matt Day of STM.

    STM is streaming the first single 'Release Through Torture' at the following link: https://soundcloud.com/spreadthemetalrecords/release-through-torture

    Track Listing - Headless

    1. Lost All Humanity
    2. Schweinehund
    3. Alai
    4. Thy Kingdom Will Come
    5. Born Headless
    6. Deprived Childhood
    7. Makot
    8. Rebirth Of Destruction
    9. Show Some Respect For The Dead
    10. The Rage Within
    11. Release Through Torture
    12. Departure


    Armed with a new line up that’s more aggressive, inspired, dedicated and with years of playing both live and recorded death metal, Whorecore is now gearing up to unleash ‘Headless’ on Canadian label Spread The Metal Records as they plan to burn stages both in and out of Israel and destroy anything in their path.

    Forming their brutality in early 2003, Whorecore has evolved over the years as one of Israel’s most respected death grinders and must see live metal acts. Releasing their debut CD entitled ‘Protection’ in 2006, which was recorded independently and then mixed by the all-mighty Scott Hull (Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Pig Destroyer) at Visceral Sound studios. Whorecore hit the road for their first European tour in April 2006 to share the stage with their childhood death metal hero's Macabre in Germany, Denmark, Belgium and France along with supporting Jungle Rot.

    Before parting ways with first vocalist and founding member, Ariel Ron, the band was featured in Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen’s 2007 music documentary ‘Global Metal’, which added to their international recognition. With a need to fill the vocalist vacancy, the band recruited long time friend, Sven De Caluwe of Aborted to join in and on the same spirit of new energies and new found power. They realized Whorecore was dead and it was time for They:Swarm to be founded.

    With a new name and new EP entitled ‘The Mundane Corruption’ recorded at the Israeli ZAZA studios and Mastuldio Studios, again by the band and close friends with mixing done by Jacob Bredahl at Dead Rat Studios in Denmark. The band was able to share the stage with most of Israel's heavy acts and numerous foreign bands such as Hatebreed, Aborted, Impaled Nazarene, Pungent stench, Entombed, Konkhra, Macabre, Jungle Rot, Leng Tche, Emeth, Ancient along with many more.

    In 2009, there were more line-up changes to hit the band with the departure of founding member, lead guitarist, Eran Segal and vocalist Sven De Caluwe leaving to focus on his main band Aborted.  With this line-up change, the remaining members decided to go back to being ‘Whorecore’ and put an end to the ‘They:Swarm’ period, where they released the single Whore Baby recorded and mixed again by the band and long time friend Liron Schaffer of ZAZA studios and was supported by was seen as a controversial music video for its certain depictions of ‘some whores and one fat baby’ as the band describes it.

  • Canadian Rockers DOLL Announce New Show Dates; New Music Video 'Plastic Lies'


    Left to right: Alex Vance – Bass | Peter Kasper – Guitar | Christina Kasper – Vocals + Guitar | Nick Richer – Drums

       Canadian female fronted alternative rockers DOLL are proud to announce new show dates in promotion of their latest album 'The Ragdoll Diaries'.

    Doll - Rolling To Rock Tour Dates

    June 21 - Watertown, NY - The Pewter Mug
    June 22 - Philadelphia, Pa - The M Room
    June 23 - Pennellville, NY (Syracuse area)- Monirae’s Bar
    June 26 - Ottawa, ON - Rainbow Bistro
    July 5 - St Jean Sur Richelieu, QC - Barock
    July 6 - Montreal, QC - Piranha Bar

    The grunge punksters recently released their third music video 'Plastic Lies' in support of 'The Ragdoll Diaries', which follows their two previous music videos 'Youth of Today, Hope For Tomorrow' and 'FMO'.

    Music Video - Plastic Lies - http://youtu.be/8o-LiMAt5zM 

    Music Video - Youth of Today, Hope For Tomorrow - http://youtu.be/tTqRVzVqYGo 

    Music Video - FMO - http://youtu.be/K-Y-rZ5EOxs

    The Ragdoll Diaries is undoubtedly Doll’s best works to date, working alongside producer Jason Jaknunas for an album that has it all, creative musicianship, honest lyrics, and a truth that’s been missing in music for some time. Supported by the fearlessly rocking threesome of Pete Kasper, Nick ‘Chopz’ Richer and newcomer to the Doll family Alex Vance, this is one band that you don’t want to miss getting in on the party early and staying for days while you zone out the beautifully crafted yet fiercely hard hitting tunes.

    1. City That Fun Forgot
    2. If I Could
    3. FMO
    4. Plastic Lies
    5. Never Too Late
    6. Guardian
    7. White Wedding
    8. Haunting of Sally
    9. Youth of Today, Hope For Tomorrow
    10. Ragdoll
    11. Sleeping In The Clouds of NYC

    Formed in 2005, Doll provides the missing link between punk and rock, a sound that’s been lacking in mainstream music for quite some time. With fresh and honest songs cutting through like a hot knife through butter, the rockers snap the listener out of their daze and onboard their trip of truth and beautifully crafted angst through sound and vision. Inspired by the great bands such as Sonic Youth, Hole and L7, Paramore, Flyleaf and Die Mannequin, Doll is on its way to becoming a creative and honest musical force to be reckoned with.

    2012 saw great advances for the band, completing several successful Eastern Canadian tours, and breaking into the US market on their first ever tour through America, their live show is evolving and becoming one of the highlights of Canadian music. With strong performances at year’s past festivals such as the Ottawa Bluesfest, IndieWeek Canada, NXNE, and D-Tox Rockfest, a strong review in many major publications such as Outburn and Revolver Magazines, along with local support from the Ottawa Xpress being nominated over years in the Best Rock album and Band categories, sharing the stage with Protest The Hero, Lacuna Coil, Three Days Grace and tons more, to selling out over 1,000 copies of both albums and 500 vinyls of the Ragdoll Diaries, video plays across MuchMusic and MusiquePlus, and ever increasing radio plays, the band has embraced DIY to its highest degree continually improving its social media reach and brand awareness. You can expect big things from Doll in the near future! 2013 will prove to be a game changer not only for the band, but the Canadian musical landscape, with plans to return to the US and to branch out even further into Canadian markets.

    “Doll has what it takes to popularize the sounds of the 90s all over again“ - The Ottawa Sun

    “Gritty, Angst-Riden music that doesn’t F#@K around“ - Now Magazine

    “This is serious music, dark, intense, and magnetic“ - Exclaim Magazine

    “Punk'N'Roll 8/10 Doll is a raucous female fronted quartet based out of Ottawa, Canada that slings 11 hard driving tracks full of punk, metal, grunge, and rock. Frontwoman Christina Kasper could simply steal the show with her aggressive demeanor and her gritty/streetwise approach to singing, but that wouldn't be fair to the band that surrounds her. While Kasper does add her guitar playing to the mix, Peter Kasper shreds each track with a vibrant blend of metal, punk and good ol' rock'n'roll. The intricate guitarwork ranges from full-on-metallic onslaughts to swirling walls of atmospheric rage and contempt. Nick Richer thunders in the background on the drum kit, helping each track rumble and rock by hammering away and pummeling the tracks into an abrasive viscosity. Add to that the fact that Doll absolutely nails a cover of Billy Idol's White Wedding and you have the makings for a viable leader in the hard punk and metal underground. ” - Outburn Magazine

    “Few words from the music encyclopedia bring waves of nostalgia back stronger than the mere mention of "grunge." Itself a semi-corrupt term for a scene nobody really understood at the time, grunge was more of a label for an era of rock philosophy – one in reaction to 80s glam and cock-rock – than it was a description of a particular sound. Ottawa band Doll clearly understand this principle, for though they proudly slap the label of grunge on their music, it is more of a badge of affiliation with the ideals of the time than the actual grunge scene. In The Ragdoll Diaries, 12 tracks of heavy rock riffs build on the wave after wave of ascending guitar sections that buoy the impressive range of lead singer Christina Kasper. ”- Ottawa Xpress

    “The debut from Ottawa's Doll caught me instantly like a fish on a hook. This is serious music. Dark, intense and magnetic, this is the kind of gritty '90s grunge that doesn't fuck around. Fronted by the vocally vicious Christina Kasper, Doll recall an angry and confused era of music devoid of pop but not catchiness. Kasper howls in the vein of Courtney Love and Brodi Dalle, and while the lyrics are simple and not exactly fresh, they are impacting. Songs like "Perfect" deal with trying to live up to society's standards, while "Sally Lost Her Shoelaces" and "Daddy's Little Girl" deal with hurt, confusion and heroin against a backdrop of chunky guitars, assaulting drums and badass attitude. Julie-Anne Madore's backing vocals add a whispered, haunting feel to this record. If the dirty rock'n'roll alone doesn't reel you in, nothing will. (Independent)”- Exclaim Magazine

    “It's rare nowadays that I get a record that gives me that good old screeching metal jolt that everyone (in my estimation anyway) needs from time-to-time. I certainly get that from The Ragdoll Diaries, the sophomore album from Ottawa quartet Doll. The band melt are a relentlessly hard-driving metal machine, with razor-sharp punk arms and hefty grunge legs welded onto it. The breakneck pace of "If I Could" and the take-no-shit first single "FMO" are powered by the vocals of Christina Kasper, who's defiant and forceful style is equal parts Kat Bjelland and Kittie. If you don't dig Doll's absolutely vicious rendition of Billy Idol's "White Wedding", then you just don't like hard music. This is not music for the tender-eared. - TO Snob

    “Despite its progressive nature, punk rock is largely dominated by men; however, Ottawa’s Doll demonstrates clearly that women can hold their own as the face of a punk band. Ragdoll Diaries is the band’s second album. With dirty bar rock forming the backbone of their sound, vocalist Christina Kasper’s singing is a throwback to ’90s grunge acts such as Hole or L7. The band’s rhythm section does a great job supporting Kasper’s vocals, which are certainly the centerpiece of the band’s music. After releasing Inside the Dollhouse in 2009, Doll spent a few years touring much of Canada alongside bands such as SNFU, Danko Jones, The Creepshow, and others. It appears as though rubbing shoulders with some of the genre’s finest has rubbed off on the band, who demonstrate a more mature and confident style with their latest release than in previous work. If Doll is coming through your neck of the woods, you’d be remiss not to check them out. - Canadian Musician Magazine
