Green Bay, Wisconsin death metal group MICAWBER have shared a brand new single and music video, titled The Cremation of Care, out now via Prosthetic Records. The Cremation of Care serves as the first glimpse of new original material since MICAWBER’s 2018 full-length, Beyond the Reach of Flame, and as an introduction to their new guitarist Billy Zahn.
Speaking on the single release, MICAWBER comments: “We are extremely stoked to release our new song The Cremation of Care and give everyone a taste of what we’re cookin’ up in the MICAWBER camp! With the addition of our new guitarist Billy Zahn (Vindicator, FROSTHELM, Fel) we are back to firing on all cylinders and ready to get back on the road doing what we do best; partying with all you psychos!”
The long running US death metal group’s latest single boasts visceral recording and mixing work by Marc Birr at Carp Town Studios, as well as mastering by Joel Grind of Toxic Holocaust. With their line-up solidified, MICAWBER’s future looks increasingly bright as they enter their sixteenth year of existence.
Having fine tuned their craft of death metal battery on stages across North America and Europe, amassing well over 20 tours along the way, MICAWBER intend to hit the road once again this year – with more details in due course.
MICAWBER is: Leighton Thompson – Guitar and vocals Billy Zahn – Guitar Nick Gouin – Bass Tyler Lachowicz – Drums

VADER, released their crushing new album “The Empire” on November 4th via Nuclear Blast, and once again proved that their merciless riffs are made to unleash hell. Without doubt, “The Empire” falls under the category of VADER’s classic albums. The impressive monument that they have built with their 13th studio album immediately found its place in metal history and proves that VADER don’t need to make their peace with the world; they never did, and they certainly don’t now with “The Empire” – especially after writing more than 30 years’ worth of Death Metal history.
