THE WHITE BUFFALO, a.k.a. singer/songwriter Jake Smith, has resolutely charted his own single-minded musical course for more than a decade.  His captivating live presence and workingman's approach to his craft has earned him a loyal fanbase worldwide.

Over the course of five albums, various EPs and numerous prominent placements in such high-profile outlets as TV's Sons of Anarchy and Californication, Smith has built a powerful body of work that marks him as a genuine original.  The California-bred artist writes timeless, vividly detailed character studies, tapping into the emotional lives of various misfits, outsiders and troubled souls with insight and compassion.  His songwriting is matched by his rough-hewn, deeply expressive voice, and by his distinctive instrumental arrangements, which are simultaneously intimate and epic.

Floridian extreme metal legends MORBID ANGEL's second album 'Blessed Are the Sick', and TERRORIZER's classic grindcore debut 'World Downfall', are available now on Full Dynamic Range vinyl.

Earache Records revolutionised the way music fans can enjoy their favourite metal albums several years ago with the launch of the Full Dynamic Range (FDR) format.  A counteraction to the "Loudness Wars", Full Dynamic Range vinyl ensures that fans hear the music as it was intended to sound - pure and organic audio pressed straight to 180-gram vinyl from the original studio analogue or DAT tapes.

Now available on Full Dynamic Range vinyl for the first time ever, 1991's 'Blessed Are the Sick' cemented MORBID ANGEL's place as one of the most influential extreme metal bands of all time with its revolutionary and unapologetic sound.  Pick up the album on limited edition coloured vinyl now at http://webstore.earache.com/morbid-angel

TERRORIZER's 1989 debut 'World Downfall' was originally pressed on limited edition Full Dynamic Range vinyl in 2013.  Since quickly selling out, fans have been clamouring for another pressing, and are now able to get their hands on this revitalised metal classic once more.  Pick up the album on FDR vinyl now at http://webstore.earache.com/terrorizer

Next in line for a repressing on Full Dynamic Range vinyl is MORBID ANGEL's third release, 1993's 'Covenant', which will be available again on September 8th.

BITERS recently unveiled a brand new music video for the single "Stone Cold Love".  Watch the video, directed by longtime collaborator Video Rahim, at http://youtu.be/slBjGh00Yec

BITERS frontman Tuk tells us about how "Stone Cold Love" came to be; "I sat down with my buddy Scott (Stevens) to write a tune.  We sat for hours trying to come up with something that felt perfect, but were hitting a dead end.  We said 'fuck it' and went to his local hang out, ate some cornbread, drank a few beers and talked about music.  We spoke about T. Rex, Queen and Slade, shit like that, how cool those big drum grooves were.  Right then a light bulb went off and we headed back to the studio with a fresh start and within hours finished writing the song, demoed it and tracked lead vocals!  I was so fucking delirious I couldn't tell if it was good or not.  A few weeks later, Scott sent me the finished demo while I was on tour in Kansas.  I remember cranking it in the van outside of this fake old wild west town and thinking, 'Goddamn, this is so good!'"

'The Future Ain't What It Used to Be' was produced by Dan Dixon and is the follow-up to 2015's critically-acclaimed 'Electric Blood'.  Get the album now on iTunes at http://bit.ly/bitersfuture-itunes or pick up signed CDs, vinyl and bundles at http://www.earache.com/biters
