After announcing their upcoming mixtape The Deathbed Sessions and unleashing their brutal track 'Fear' last month, Cursed Earth have backed it up with their new single 'Torch' which premiered on triple j's The Racket on Tuesday. Where 'Fear' featured Matt Honeycutt (Kublai Khan) delivering vocals, 'Torch' pins The Amity Affliction's Joel Birch at the helm of vocal duties. Spitting guttural lyrics dipped in Cursed Earth's scathing brand of metal, 'Torch' is The Deathbed Sessions most blistering track of all.

Broadway is certainly full of them: those amazing performers dubbed as 'triple threats'--those singer/dancer/actor-types that are just brimming with an abundance of extraordinary talent. David Elder rightly belongs in this revered group, and has proven the label quite a lot over the years, working steadily on the stage with an envious consistency. For the holiday season, he's bringing his knack for entertaining audiences as one of the leads in the touring stage version of Irving Berlin's WHITE CHRISTMAS, playing at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa through January 1, 2012. Before arriving in Orange County where he'll spend the remainder of the holidays, Elder chatted with BroadwayWorld's Michael Lawrence Quintos about his early interests, his fulfilling career in musical theater, and his tap-happy foray into Danny Kaye's shoes.
