Willowtip to release new MACABRE album



 Celebrarating their 25th Anniversary of all original members Chicago’s murder metal pioneers MACABRE  unleash their brand new studio album entitled “Grim Scary Tales” in Europe on January 31st, 2011 by Hammerheart Records & in North America on February 8th, 2011 by Willowtip Records.  The album explores the history of murder from the earliest times and proceeds forward through the ages.  Stylistically it is MACABRE in nature, yet very diverse musically.  Featuring original cover art and layout by Scott Jackson from Monsterman Graphics & Rock N Roll Comics fame.  ISIS Design also just created a brand new band Myspace, check it out HERE 

Additionally MACABRE is about to embark on a tour through Europe with NAPALM DEATH, IMMOLATION and WAKING THE CADAVER.  Starting Thursday, November 5th in Hamburg, Germany.  During this five week tour, dubbed the “Campaign For Musical Destruction Tour 2010”, the band will exclusively be offering fans their brand new album at these live shows far in advance of the 2011 in store dates.  A complete listing of tour dates and cities can be found below. 


Born in 1985, Chicago’s MACABRE blends elements of true crime, math rock, nursery rhymes, punk, thrash, folk melodies, death metal, jazz fusion, black metal and more into an energetic,

catchy and unmistakable amalgam Murder Metal.
