News round-up: Autopsy, Architects, Drudkh, Hawk Eyes and Pythia

By on November 21, 2011

The news in brief from the world of Terrorizer, featuring Autopsy’s compilation, new videos from Architects and Hawk Eyes, and new albums from Drudkh and Pythia.

Reunited death metal legends Autopsy have finished work on their ‘All Tomorrow’s Funerals’ compilation which includes all their EPs and some brand new material. The recordings are finished, the remasters done and the album will be out via Peaceville on February 20.

British upstarts Architects have made a topical video for brand new song ‘Devil’s Island’. The song sees something of a return to the heaviness and intricacy of their earlier material. The lyrics and video refer to the recent riots in Britain, drummer Dan Searle saying: “Devil’s Island’ focuses on what went on during the London and England riots, and boiled down, the song is Anti Violence, as simple as that. We don’t believe in violence under any circumstances, it only ever serves to exacerbate a situation and more often than not just provokes a violent reaction.”
The band’s tour kicks off on December 14, and the band will return to the studio to record a new album in January following this.

Ukrainian black metallers Drudkh have completed work on their ninth album. The album is entitled ‘Eternal Turn Of The Wheel’ and reportedly marks a return to their early sound. It will be released on February 24 via Season Of Mist. Time to dig out ‘Forgotten Legends’ and remember how fantastic it is.

Leeds brilliant bruisers Hawk Eyes (formerly known as Chickenhawk) also have a new video online. Taken from their new EP ‘Mindhammers’ out December 12, get your ears around ‘Crack Another One’:

And finally, British symphonic metallers Pythia will release their second album ‘The Serpent’s Curse’ on February 27 on Golden Axe via Genepool/Universal. An advance single ‘Betray My Heart’ will be released on December 19 on limited 7″ coloured vinyl.

Meanwhile, the Terrorizer office has been debating over their favourite albums for a celebratory run down. Check back here tomorrow to find out what this is all about, but for now, here’s a clue (aka any excuse for listening to ‘Blood And Thunder’):
