Macabre to Self-Release Picture Disc LP and to tour North America

Macabre is easily one of the scariest Heavy Metal bands out there, which is why many have labeled them as "Murder Metal"! The band is currently preparing to self-release a 12" picture disc LP version of their recent full-length titled "Grim Scary Tales" (via their own Decomposed Records).

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 distro 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 have cleverly devised a “story book of murder” with this album, as Grim Scary Tales tracing back to the earliest recorded and most infamous mass killers.

This gory platter of splatter bears the bold:

This special edition LP comes just in time for Macabre's next leg of their Grim Scary Tales Tour. The band is gearing up to hit the road in two weeks, with Exhumed, Cephalic Carnage and Withered. The gore tour gets begins on July 24th -- 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.
