California-based extreme metallers VILE have issued the following update:
“VILE seeks bassist and lead guitarist for future shows in California and eventually a European tour. Must have extensive band experience, pro gear, etc. Prefer those without edgy or hostile personalities and cigarette smokers are not eligible, sorry. Tuning is straight 1/2 step down on seven-string guitar or five-string bass (starting at Bb). Send private message to Colin Davis on Facebook with links to videos of your live performace and stodio recordings. Tab for VILE songs is available on the web. Audition videas are a good idea, but you can make them private if you choose. Guitarists, pick a song from ‘New Age of Chaos’ with solos to show your solo skills.”
VILE‘s fourth full-length album, “Metamorphosis”, came out last November via Willowtip Records. According to the band, the CD is “a concept album which contains a wide variety of styles, tempos and lyrical topics with an interlocking philosophical and lyrical concept.”
The group added, “We are confident that old-school VILE fans will love it and also that fans of other styles of metal, not only American death metal, will be quite pleased. The recording quality is the best we have released to date and we expect the album to be a standard-raising release for the genre of extreme metal.”
“Metamorphosis” is the follow-up to “The New Age of Chaos”, which was released in North America in October 2005 via Unique Leader Records.
