“Murder metal” mongers MACABRE are preparing to release a 12-inch picture-disc-LP version of their recent full-length album, “Grim Scary Tales”, via their own Decomposed Records. This gory platter of splatter bears the bold, Scott Jackson-crafted front cover art to the album on the A-side, and a portrait of the infamous MACABRE trio, armed for battle, as always, on the B-side.

The LP release comes just in time for MACABRE‘s next leg of their multi-stage “Grim Scary Tales” tour, as the band prepares to hit the road in two weeks, once again with EXHUMED, CEPHALIC CARNAGE and WITHERED. The gore tour gets going on July 24 — with MACABRE headlining the Central Illinois Metalfest, joined by NACHTMYSTIUM, NUNSLAUGHTER, EMBALMER and tons more — the tour lineup them moving on to invade sectors of the Midwest and Western North America.
MACABRE‘s first album in eight long years, “Grim Scary Tales” was released earlier this year on the band’s Decomposed Records, with North American distribution by Willowtip and European distribution by Hammerheart. The album delivers the madness and musicianship MACABRE fans have come to love over the past quarter of a century, cleverly combining nursery rhyme sing-along quirkiness with ultra-tight, high-speed, gore/grind/death ingenuity. MACABRE has cleverly devised a “story book of murder” with this album, as “Grim Scary Tales” traces back to the earliest recorded and most infamous mass killers.
