Wie bereits kürzlich bekannt gegeben, steht bei den bonner Progressive Black Metallern KLABAUTAMANN im Juni ein neues Album-Release an. Schon jetzt hat die Band das Cover ihres fünften Longplayers "SMARAGD" veröffentlicht: Das Artwork stammt von COSTIN CHIOREANU, bekannt von seinen Arbeiten für Opeth, Triptykon, Enslaved, At The Gates u.v.m.
Übrigens: Das einzigartige Artwork wird es für alle Besteller des Pre-Order-Packages als A3-Poster geben. Der Pre-Sale startet Anfang Mai.
Für die Aufnahmen wurden KLABAUTAMANN von diversen größeren Namen unterstützt: so konnte man u.a. Anna Murphy (NUCLEUS TORN, ex-ELUVEITIE) für die Clean Vocals und die Drehleier gewinnen, Fredy Schnyder (ebenfalls NUCLEUS TORN) spielt auf "Smaragd" die Hammond-Orgel. Für den Mix und das Mastering ist - wie schon bei den KLABAUTAMANN-Alben "Our Journey Through The Woods" und "The Old Chamber" - ARMIN RAVE (u.a. Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult, Grabnebelfürsten, Pavor) verantwortlich.
Erscheinen wird "Smaragd" auf dem bandeigenen Label Zeitgeister Music. Es wird nach "Our Journey Through The Woods" (2003), "Der Ort" (2005), "Merkur" (2009) und "The Old Chamber" (2011) das fünfte Album von KLABAUTAMANN sein.

ODROERIR – DAS ERBE UNSERER AHNEN   
Mit den neuen Akustik / Folklore Liedern, laden ODROERIR die Hörer ein weiteres Mal in eine musikalisch besinnliche Reise in die facettenreiche Geschichte und Mythologie unserer Altvorderen ein. Unterstützt wurde dieses Vorhaben durch zahlreiche Gastauftritte aus dem musikalischen Freundeskreis der Band.
Das Album wird als reine Musik CD sowie als A5-Digi-CD + Bonus DVD erscheinen.
Das in den Videos verwendete Film- und Bildmaterial, stammt aus verschiedensten Wanderungen und Radurlauben, welche sich über die letzten Jahre bei Fix so angesammelt haben.
Hierbei wird das Augenmerk ausschließlich auf Naturszenen und Kulturdenkmäler gesetzt.
Einige Songs kann man sich schon als Preview auf dem Bandeigenen YouTube Kanal anschauen.

ODROERIR präsentieren das Frontcover zu „Das Erbe unserer Ahnen“.
Auf der Fotografie ist das Megalithgrab Heringsberg abgelichtet, welches auch Grimschleben 1 bzw. Ihringsbreite genannt wird. Jenes fulminante Großsteingrab befindet sich bei Grimschleben im Salzlandkreis von Sachsen Anhalt. Laut Sage soll hier sogar, wie der Name schon latent andeutet, der aus dem 6. Jahrhundert bekannte thüringische Held IRING begraben sein.
Nach anderer Deutung soll aber Fürst BUZICO (Dietrich von Buzici) ein Ahnherr der alten Wettiner hier seine letzte Ruhestätte gefunden haben. Unter anderem stammt aus seinem Geschlecht die heutige Königin von England ab. Natürlich ist keiner von beiden hier beigesetzt, schließlich entstand jenes Monument schon in der Jungsteinzeit.
Der Bandkomponist Fix fügt aber hinzu: „Für mich drückt dieses Bild, die geschichtliche, mythische Kontinuität vom Inhalt der Lieder metaphorisch aus. Ein wunderschönes ca. 5000 Jahre altes Kulturdenkmal aus dem Neolithikum, welsches auch mit bronzezeitlichen Nachbestattungen belegt wurde und obendrein noch mit mittelalterlichem Sagengut umwoben ist.“    https://www.facebook.com/Odroerirofficial

Verehrte Tollfinder toller Bands! BEASTMAKER haben eine herrliche Fuck-off-Attitüde.  Sie lieben und leben den Underground, sind immun gegen die gegenwärtigen Plastikproduktionen vieler Rock/Metal-Acts und sehen sich als Outsider, als Missgeburten, als Freaks Of Nature.
BEASTMAKER brechen in einer digitalen Welt eine Lanze für die ursprüngliche Natürlichkeit der Rockmusik. Die Amis sind jedoch keine ewiggestrigen Hippies.
  Die Truppe stammt aus dem kalifornischen Fresno, das nicht unbedingt als Kulturhauptstadt der Region verschrien ist.  Das kommt Eigenbrötlern wie BEASTMAKER nur gelegen.
Die Kerle mischen munter, was ihnen vor die Flinte kommt: Im Resultat hört man angenehmst Black Sabbath, Pentagram und Witchfinder General heraus:
  Doom, 70er-Classic-Rock, Kult-Horror-Filme, die Misfits in Zeitlupe, irgendwie Doom, auch wenn Genre-Puristen die niedergerissenen Tellerränder von BEASTMAKER eher irritierend finden könnten.  "INSIDE THE SKULL" ist der perfekte Titel für die neue Scheibe der drei Dickköpfe.

ALFAHANNE DEBUTS SECOND TRACK FROM UPCOMING ALBUM VIA LYRIC VIDEO
Sweden's "Alfapokalyptic Rockers" ALFAHANNE, whose third full-length album "DET NYA SVARTA" is set for release on Indie Recordings in April, have today revealed another track from the album via a lyric video by Marcelo Vasco Arts .  The track, " Avgrundsgravitation",  features guest vocals by  DAVID LINDH of SOOT & FLOOD, YVONNE and  BRODER DANIEL is premiering exclusively at  http://www.ghostcultmag.com/exclusive-video-premiere-alfahanne-avgrundsgravitation/
ALFAHANNE's lineup of Pehr Skjoldhammer on Vocals and Guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on Guitars, Niklas Åström on Drums, and Jimmy Wiberg on Bass,  came together to form the band in Eskilstuna, Sweden, in 2010. With considerable experience gained in bands such  as VINTERLAND and early MAZE OF TORMENT,  and with an abundance of energy and exuberance, ALFAHANNE hit the ground running with their debut full-length album “Alfapokalyps”, which appeared on Dark Essence Records in 2014 and  was followed by "Blod Eld Alfa" in 2015. 
With their impressive, and totally likeable, swagger, and their natural affinity for making friends with their fans, ALFAHANNE's growing reputation as a dynamic live act, coupled with a sound that they describe as “Alfapokalyptic Rock”, which mixes Black Metal with Classic Rock and Punk, and good old Rock n Roll, has earned the band an ever-growing army of followers. 
Along with winning over their fans, ALFHAHANNE have also earned the respect of established musicians, amongst whom are TAAKE’s Hoest, SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth, HELHEIM’s V’gandr,  KVELERTAK frontman Erlend Hjelvik, Spellgoth from HORNA and TURMION KÄTILÖT, and Nattfursth from SORHIN, all of whom have guested in the studio with the band, and some of whom have also appeared live on stage with them.
In keeping with what has become a tradition of being able to work with some of the best of the best, ALFAHANNE's new album "Det Nya Svarta" features guest vocals from KAMPFAR's Dolk, GEHENNA's Sanrabb and  Nadine Skjoldhammer, as well as the afore-mentioned David Lindh. Recorded at the Dödskult studio by Alfahanne's Pehr Skjoldhammer and Mixed and mastered by Stamos Koliousis, and with artwork by the Trine + Kim Design Studio, track listing for "Det Nya Svarta" is as follows:
1. Satans verser (with Dolk from KAMPFAR)
2. Stigmata
3. Avgrundsgravitation (with David Lindh from SOOT & FLOOD,YVONNE,BRODER DANIEL)
4. Klubb 27
5. Mitt mörker är mörkare än ditt (with Nadine Skjoldhammer)
6. Dödsmaskin (with Sanrabb from GEHENNA)
7. Även en hund har sin dag
8. Svarta får
9. Det nya svarta
Frontman Skjoldhammer recently explained that with their third full-length album ALFAHANNE are continuing  to explore the dark side of mankind: "Alfahanne's lyrics are very personal and have many layers of dirt. Once you dig deeper into them you find many truths as I see them.  Alfahanne will never lean to the left or to the right or write about political issues. The only political issue that is close to our hearts is equal rights but the flipside of that same coin is that we think everyone is equally.... Equally useless." 
"Det Nya Svarta", which will hit the streets on April 7th,  is now available to pre-order in CD and Vinyl formats from
 
http://shop.indierecordings.no/artist/16189--alfahanne  and in Digital format from https://alfahanneofsweden.bandcamp.com/album/pre-order-det-nya-svarta
ALFAHANNE have been confirmed to appear at the  In Flammen Open Air festival in Torgau, Germany in July.  More dates to be announced shortly.

Progressive Death/Thrash Outfit HEMOTOXIN have released the official video for "Bleak Prognosis," a song from Unspeakable Axe Records album BIOLOGICAL ENSLAVEMENT. The video was filmed by Red Fox Production. Special thanks to Ronin Studios and Ritchie Orozco. Check it out at:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkLf10shG8k
HEMOTOXIN released sophomore album Biological Enslavement April 15, 2016 on Unspeakable Axe Records.  Stream it in its entirety and/or purchase it at:
https://unspeakableaxerecords.bandcamp.com/album/biological-enslavement
Categorizing what kind of music HEMOTOXIN makes is harder than it would seem.  Their brand of melodic death/thrash springs from a whole host of metal influences: progressive death metal (e.g. DEATH, ATHEIST), classic thrash (MEGADETH, SLAYER and others), and even some black metal and prog rock.  Any given song could groove, then thrash, then send you through a dizzying labyrinth of elaborate riffs and ideas.  Somehow they juggle all these influences and produce from it a cohesive whole, while keeping the aggression high and the song's core melodic components front and center. Whatever they are doing, HEMOTOXIN do it very well, and they've only gotten tighter and more adventurous as a unit since their 2013 debut.  At 9 tracks and just 35 succinct minutes, Biological Enslavement will take you on a journey more interesting than most albums twice its length. 
HEMOTOXIN is:

TIME WALK (US) - 'BEYOND ETERNITY'S GRASP'
Genre - Death Metal
Release Date - May 12th, 2017
Record Label - Static Tension Recordings (US)
For fans of - OBITUARY, SIX FEET UNDER, MERAUDER, BOLT THROWER, PAGANIZER, GRAVE, UNLEASHED
TIME WALK are a revelation. Both their albums are underrated and channel the '90s death metal sound with a touch of thrash and hardcore and it all snowballs into something refreshing and powerful. Their riffing prowess is seriously impressive and it just takes you back to a time when everything sounded huge and awesome. They're not trying to be too fast or flamboyant but are instead fleshing out their riffs which is bound to find appeal in listeners regardless of their metal background and experience. There's indeed a certain charm in this; after listening to all kinds of brutal and chaotic music, it's refreshing to hear something that's going back to the basics, so to speak, and focusing on excellent riffing, structure and execution than anything else. The surprising RUNEMAGICK cover at the end doesn't hurt one bit either. 
Track list: 
1. Ruinick Echoes 04:07
2. Fury Of The Sands 04:15
3. Time Heals Nothing 03:09
4. War 03:14
5. Temple Of The Forbidden 03:32
6. Enter The Realm Of Death 05:58 (RUNEMAGICK cover!)

A new two-man North Carolina/New Jersey Black Metal studio project, DECREPIT THRONE recently released debut album (February 4, 2017). Guitarist Gregory Maupin joins New Jersey vocalist Ron Kaiser (BLASPHEMOUS) in offering seven iniquitous tracks of blackened fury with influences inclusive of DISSECTION, DRUDKH, EMPEROR, DEATH, CELTIC FROST, and many others.
Stream and/or purchase TRAITOR'S GRAVE at   https://decrepitthrone.bandcamp.com/
Based in North Carolina, Maupin started DECREPIT THRONE after his last band mysteriously and abruptly came to an end. The focus is making dark music, rather than the drama in which so many local musicians drown themselves. Vocalist Ron Kaiser was kind enough to perform and write lyrics for the project.
The CD version of Traitor's Grave will be available on April 10, 2017. Pre-order the CD at  this location .

HESSAJA -  'PLANET SEDAM: ISON'
RELEASE DATE: April 21, 2017
RUNNING TIME:   22:49 minutes
GENRE:  Progressive Metal
FFO:  Amenra, Neurosis, Celeste, Rorcal, Oathbreaker, Wolves In The Throne Room...
HESSJA were formed in 2012 and produced their self-titled first record in 2014. The album was released by Devils Eject Records on vinyl with solid success and positive reviews.  The band then released a music video in the run-up to the release of their new EP 'Planet Sedam: ISON' which imagines the Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) in the role of liberator in the endless fight between living will and eternal silence, hope and finality. From the first second until the end of the EP, you will become part of this fight. The EP is a masterwork, that erases all of the typical limits of metal. Besides the atmospheric samples and synergetic sounds, you will hear blast beats mixed with post rock parts. 
Since the beginning of time, comets have sparked great interest due to their sudden occurrence and nature to behave totally different to other celestial bodies. This describes exactly the music of HESSJA. So stay tuned for the new LP.

MAXDMYZ – ALCHEMICAL METAL
Genre: Alchemical Metal
For fans of: Rammstein | White Zombie | Ministry | Sisters Of Mercy
The sound of Maxdmyz has always been built upon the principle of absolute freedom. They follow no orders, defy all expectations and respect no rules but their own. Armed with their palette of endless colours these sonic rebels have produced music as eclectic as it is explosive. They have poured emotion into a heart of steel, crafting a music machine driven by love, hate, rage and joy, sadness, regret and hope. This band can deliver a hammer blow with an iron fist, bewitch your body into a pulsing dance or simply obliterate you in a wall of cyber noise. All of this and more can be found on their latest release, the beguiling, untameable, impossible to cage Alchemical Metal.
Alchemical Metal takes every element of the Maxdmyz live show that has enthralled crowds from London to New York and blends them into a quicksilver potion of magical intensity. The voice of front man Twister leads you into a labyrinth of sound, a maze of spine shattering blast beats, convulsing bass, shimmering synths and riffs like a war machine. You’ll be enchanted and broken, raised up to dizzying heights of euphoria and crushed into the dirt of bitter, black despair. From a reason to live to down in the dirt, via hell...
How do you categorise a band like Maxdmyz? What genre tag do you tie to them? The truth is, that they simply will not be put in anyone else’s box and the only name that fits is one of their own making – Alchemical Metal; the collision of science and sorcery, the transformation of the mundane to the magical, base metal into gold. It’s time to try a new drug, take the path less travelled, leap into the dark and watch an array of colours explode around you. Live hard, live fast and feel every moment to the max. Alchemical Metal is here to take you on a new ride. Take a deep breath and hold on tight...
Line-up:
Twister – Vocals/FX
A’Zedd - Bass
Roger – Guitar/FX/Programming
Jamie – Drums/FX/Programming
Vortex – Keys/Programming

New Jersey Death Metal Derelicts KALOPSIA will release their third album ANGELPLAGUE on May 19 through Horror Pain Gore Death Productions. Weaving together the blasting intensity of American death metal, Scandinavian  melodies and Jersey's home grown breakdowns, Angelplague is KALOPSIA's most ferociously heavy effort to date. The relentless opener "Destined to Return" is a high-velocity foreshadowing of things to come, while "Christened Upon the Slab" and "Not Peace But Pestilence" focus on knuckle-dragging, head nodding groove. "Scorched Earth and Blackened Skies," the longest and most dynamic track on the album showcases frenzied fretwork and brutal groove before unleashing a dual-guitar hook that gets stuck in the listener's head with all the subtlety of a pick axe.
"We wanted to come out swinging" says guitarist Matt Medeiros. "Our last album was focused on speed and dexterity. This time we wanted bigger hooks, and bigger breakdowns."
Angelplague continues KALOPSIA's horrific mutation, blending blasting brutality, pit-inducing ignorance, melodic guitar interplay and an old-school vibe to create a pestilential soundtrack to scorch the earth and blacken the skies. The album was produced by Bobby Torres at Frightbox Studios.
Track Listing:
1. Destined to Return
2. As the Serpent Devours
3. Christened Upon the Slab
4. Not Peace But Pestilence
5. Scorched Earth and Blackened Skies
6. Source of My Evil
7. Surge of Terror
8. Bitter Sacraments
Line –up :
Matt Medeiros (Ruinous, ex-Funebrarum) - Vocals / Guitars 
Justin Spaeth (Abacinate, Hammer Fight, Dysentery) - Drums 
Drew Murphy (Hammer Fight) - Bass 
Steve Horvath (Deteriorot) - Lead Guitars

Conceived in July 2016, A Mournful Path is the product of a long standing collaboration between brothers David and Michael Romeo. Born of a mutual love of Scandinavian Black Metal, A Mournful Path is a unique coalescence of modern black, atmospheric and death metal. 
A single "From The Wreckage Of Humiliation" was released today on all essential digital stores like
Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Google Play just to name a few. It is an excellent foretaste of what's to come.

Italian Death Metallers ANTROPOFAGUS have partnered with Decibel Magazine in debuting "SPAWN OF CHAOS," a track from forthcoming Comatose Music release Methods of Resurrection Through Evisceration (M.O.R.T.E.). Get in on the action below!  http://decibelmagazine.com/blog/2017/3/13/track-premiere-antropofagus-spawn-of-chaos
ANTROPOFAGUS returns on May 12, 2017 with an album of uncompromising godless ferocity! Five years after their highly praised Architecture of Lust release, this Italian death metal beast strikes again with Comatose Music release Methods of Resurrection Through Evisceration (M.O.R.T.E.), a journey into life, death, resurrection and the descent into the darkest depths of self.  
This is ANTROPOFAGUS' heaviest and most wicked effort to date, blending old school US death metal influences with their trademark style of brutality. M.O.R.T.E. is a deluge of punishing frantic riffs, monstrous vocals and a relentless drums performance by Davide 'BrutalDave' Billia (BEHEADED, HOUR OF PENANCE). Make no mistake; there is no escape. ANTROPOFAGUS is coming to consume your flesh and invade your soul! 
Also look out for the officially licensed vinyl edition from Everlasting Spew Records. 
Guitarist Francesco and Vocalist Tya had this to say about the forthcoming Comatose Music release:
Francesco: "We decided to go with a warmer and fatter tone this time. The songs are more straight forward and in your face than the songs on 'Architecture of Lust', and certainly more groovy. I'd say this is the most old school and evil Antropofagus album to date. Dave and I worked hard to make sure this album would have a deeper sanguineous sound, and I also went from a six string to a seven string guitar for this recording. I'd say Morbid Angel and Hate Eternal have been the strongest influences while writing this album, but the Antropofagus trademark is definitely there, so expect pure brutality! Probably our most balanced and mature album so far."
Tya: "This is definitely the Antropofagus album which we worked the most on, the one that required the highest tribute from us. As on a conceptual level, it's drenched of my own blood. M.O.R.T.E. is a continual succession of thoughts, shadows and nightmares shaped into music, extreme and hate-filled against all which is dogmatic to humanity's eyes. A process of rebirth through the evisceration of my own self."
RIYL: HOUR OF PENANCE, NILE, IMMOLATION, BEHEADED
Track Listing:
1. Whirlwind of Initiation
2. Spawn of Chaos
3. Chants for Abyzou
4. Praise to a Hecatomb
5. Methods of Resurrection Through Evisceration
6. Omnipotent Annihilation
7. The Abyss (Chapter One)
8. Quintessence of Suffering
9. Deception of the Blood
10. Living in Fear (Malevolent Creation cover)

German thrash metal band CENTRATE looking for a label. Centrate is a German Thrash Metal Band, formed in Dillenburg in 2010. After playing shows with bands like Dust Bolt, Accu§er, Pribjat, Dawn of Disease, Scornage, Face Down Hero and Constradiction, they recorded their first EP Tiger Force in the beginning of 2015 at the Desert Inn Studio Edingen.

ILLIMITABLE DOLOR (Australia) - 'SELF-TITLED'
Genre - Atmospheric Death/Doom  Metal
Release Date - March 22nd, 2017
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - THE SLOW DEATH, ESOTREIC, MY DYING BRIDE, TYRANNY, SKEPTICISM, MOURNFUL CONGREGATION, EVOKEN, PARADISE LOST
From members of the acclaimed doom band THE SLOW DEATH comes a special band paying tribute to their deceased band member, Gregg Williamson. Under the name of ILLIMITABLE DOLOR, they play some of the most emotive and sincere doom ever recorded. Extremely heartfelt and personal, these four songs are the perfect expression of grief-ridden, wistful and stirring doom that is reminiscent of the '90s bands but add their own atmosphere to the output. Stuart Prickett writes some of the most heartrending music here and it's easily palpable to any living soul. ILLIMITABLE DOLOR's intent is pure as their music, deep and moving, and this debut full length is a testament to the power of raw emotions channelled gracefully as an ode to someone personal and cherished.

GHÖLEM  is a great death metal band from Mexico City. Music features roots in the sound of old names like Death, Carcass, Pestilence, (old) Sepultura, etc  . No trends here, just complex sections, vicious guitar riffs, provocative bass lines and holocaustic guturals.  
First full length album "MATTER WITHOUT FORM, BODY WITHOUT SOUL" was self- released on 18/02/2017
Label: MPTDO, Alexis Aguilar
Genre: Death Metal
Format: CD, MP3, Streaming.
Origin: Mexico
Release date: 02/18/17
Influences: Death, Carcass, Slayer, Sepultura, Emperor, early In Flames, Amorphis, Blind Guardian
In Jewish folklore, a Golem is an animated anthropomorphic being that is magically created from inanimate matter. The word was used to mean an amorphous, unformed material in psalms and medieval writing. A colossus made of stone.
Ghölem was formed in 2001, in Mexico City, early releasing 3 EP's: Path Without Peace, 2001, Lack of Balance, 2002 and Mechanical. 2006
At the end of this early stage, they split up, but with the new decade, three of the classic members reunite, Claudio, Gero and Alexis, with the adding of Enrique "Kano" Rangel in Drums and Production duties.
Finally, after three years of production, GHÖLEM releases "Matter Without Form, Body Without Soul", LP with 10 original tracks of old school death metal.
Following the old tradition of excellent death metal bands in Mexico in early 90’s, these guys have created a really good album with references of old names in the genre, such as Death, Carcass, Cancer, (old) Sepultura, etc.
We are talking about people involved in extreme metal music for a long time, and they come merciless to new generations of followers. No trends here, just complex sections, vicious guitar riffs, provocative bass lines and holocaustic guturals.   It’s a great death metal work from Aztec lands, and highly recommended if you are into obscured-technical death metal with passion.

1. Hearts and Souls
2. Veil
3. Ghölem's Way

ASHEN HORDE (US) - 'THE ALCHEMIST'
Genre - Dissonant/Technical Black Metal
Release Date - March 14th, 2017
For fans of - IMMORTAL, ABBATH, ABIGOR, NACHTMYSTIUM, BLUT AUS NORD, SACRAMENTUM
Black metal stalwarts ASHEN HORDE are back with their latest EP after receiving rave feedback for their full length album. Though often compared with IMMORTAL/ABBATH, the band expand upon that sound by adding their own dissonant touches and off-kilter hooks to the template. The result is an intricate, hard-hitting and unpredictable slice of black metal that's as memorable as it's vicious. This here is a two-song EP meant for a 7" vinyl release and you can't possibly get enough of it. It's a sublime precursor of what's to come via Transcending Obscurity Records - a new full length album.
Track list: 
1. Arisen
2. Fallen

Stevie: Vox 
Trevor: Guitar and bass

Finnish Death Dealers LANTERN have premiered a new song from forthcoming Dark Descent Records album II: MORPHOSIS, courtesy of No Clean Singing. Stream the beast at this location.
Dark Descent Records will once again unleash Finland's LANTERN upon the huddled masses. The band's second full-length, II: Morphosis, is set for a March 17 release.  
Pre-order the album on  CD ,  black viny l, and  blue/black splatter vinyl.
Make sure to check out Decibel's exclusive stream of "Black Miasma"  here .
II: Morphosis was mixed and mastered by Dan Lowndes/Resonance Sound Studios. Artwork by Zbigniew M. Bielak. 
"Since LANTERN's debut full-length Below perfectly got the zeitgeist of the mid-10's dark and arcane DM revival DARK DESCENT RECORDS has almost become synonymous for, it would have made perfect sense for those Finns to simply so to speak return to very same cave and lock themselves up down there with no heat nor light for two weeks straight to conjure the same type of pitch black music. But this is where you draw the line in between those happy with their little niche and the real artists, destined to expand their horizon no matter what... 
Fear not, II - Morphosis isn't trying to reach for the light either and still reeks of the ancient metal ov death foul stench. And even if they've now officially integrated the three extra members the initial duo had with them since 2011 for live activities and recorded it as a five piece, there's still here a palpable sense of obscurity throughout those nine songs, as if being seen through a veiled curtain.
But many actually will probably actually be quite surprised by how articulate but also strangely melodic the 'new' LANTERN is. While a track like "Cleansing of the Air" or the epic instrumental "Necrotic Epiphanies" carry a strong thrash influence that can also be found in Necrophilos' scruffy vocals, the album is first and foremost packed with twisted riffs that spiral on and off that pierce through the thick fog it conjures like razors. But no matter how hectic the whole thing gets, they never loose control, like some kind of bizarre version of TREBLINKA not led by clueless teenagers but proper musicians determined to get on a short leash the madness that drives them.
LANTERN is:
Cruciatus - lead guitar
Necrophilos - vocals
J. Noisehunter - bass
St. Belial - rhythm guitar
J. Poussu - drums

Hi – Chris and Paul from Imperative PR here, with some exciting news from FORMICARIUS. Today the band have signed a deal with the German label SCHWARZDORN PRODUCTION! Schwarzdorn have been established since 1994 and are known for releasing individual black metal of real quality – making them the perfect fit for Formicarius.
The first release from this new, unholy alliance will be Formicarius’ debut full length album – BLACK MASS RITUAL. The single from the album, ‘Lake Of The Dead’ is now into its second pressing and the accompanying video, created by Andy Pilkington (Flotsam And Jetsam etc) has been hugely popular. Such has been the impact of ‘Lake Of The Dead’ that Sony Music/Music For Nations selected it to be included on their compilation album Speed Kills VII – a relaunch of the famous Speed Kills series that helped introduce the world to the likes of Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax. All of which has served to heighten and intensify the anticipation for Black Mass Ritual...
Some of the songs have been performed live when Formicarius played storming shows with the likes of Negura Bunget, Old Corpse Road, Hate and Noctem – Zero Tolerance Magazine ed to describe them as ‘masterful in their construction and execution’ and Powerplay Magazine to enthuse that with “great riffs, great solos, keyboards that really contributed to the songs, bestial vocals and some great metal drumming, Formicarius had it all.” Now the wait for Black Mass Ritual will soon be over - and with the power of Schwarzdorn Production behind them, Formicarius are ready to set the world ablaze!.
Thanks for all your support! Chris & Paul - IPR

GORESOERD - ANTIKEHA
A project that started out in 2004 as two guys playing and experimenting with grindcore, Goresoerd has quickly evolved into the spearhead of intelligent, vicious and tongue-in-cheek extreme music in the Estonian scene. Hectic, hyper-driven and entertaining live shows have paved the way for the band’s success.
GORESOERD blasted off as an idea for a project after some collaboration between Stig and Kari of Symbolic State in late 2004. Back then it was just for fun and experimenting, a short foray from their main band. They used a drum machine, as it gave them some advantage —skipping the part of a real drummer’s trials and tribulations in the studio. In the beginning it was meant to be grind, but after inducing humor and even some elements of parody, they found themselves head over heels committed to the project.
After releasing a 6-track MCD “Nekromantik” in 2006 under a nascent label Stuka Sound, Goresoerd drifted away from the initial grind-death-grotesquerade. The new material, a truly eclectic feast of 17 hilarious and extreme tracks, with influences varying from mainstream rock to crust hardcore, entitled “Goremarket Mid-Prices”, was released in 2007 by Estonia’s biggest metal music label, Nailboard Records. 
In February 2010 Goresoerd unleashed its second full-length, entitled "Tüdruk ja Surm" ("Maiden And Death"), backed by an unerring sense of hit-worthiness and the solid punch delivered in the lyrics by the legendary and infamous Estonian writer Sven Kivisildnik — resulting in a bizarre "rock opera" involving lethally precise death metal riffing, catchy melodic soloing and violent, varied vocal hooks, wherein all possible borders between the real and the grotesque come down in a sickly bout of gallows-humour.
September 2013 - “Asülum” (“Asylum”) is released, which is far more diverse and copious than previous albums. With their latest release, the group has also drastically raised the bar in terms of production quality as proven by pre-released singles "Kuningas Direktor", "Asülum" and "Masin". Music videos for two of the forementioned conquered the charts of "Estonian Top Music Videos" on several occasions as well.
The twelve tracks pack a punch on full throttle, coasting on ironic lyrics, melodic leads and atmospheric synths, giving the release its fine tuned balance between raw energy and progressive sound.  "Asülum" LP was released in collaboration with Crunch Industry and Inverse Records.
In March 03 2017 the band released "Antikeha" ("Antibody"), its fourth album. The poison green publication is like an expansion of the previous long play, where characteristic aggressiveness is fulfilled with melodic vocals at times. Video single "Neetud" is a good example for that.
"Antikeha" will be released by Crunch Industry and distributed by Inverse Records.
GORESOERD is:
Eero "Nagy" Soomere - vocals
Stig Lindeberg - guitar & back vocals
Tõnis Noevere - drums
Janar Tiitus - bass & back vocals

Hallo Leute,  beim  PARTY.SAN METAL OPEN AIR geht es Schlag auf Schlag. Heute haben wir drei neue Bands im Gepäck, die gerade den Undergroundfreaks gefallen sollten. Wer sein Ticket noch immer nicht hat, wird hier fündig:  www.cudgel.de
Eine pechschwarze, okkulte Urgewalt und ein rabiates Inferno exakt auf halber Strecke zwischen Bestial Black Metal und gruftigem Death Metal – das ist das anonyme Kollektiv KOSMOKRATOR. Zwar hat die belgische Band erst ein Demo („To The Svmmit“) und eine MLP („First Step Towards Supremacy“) veröffentlicht, aber die außergewöhnliche Live-Präsentation der Truppe gilt bereits als legendär. Unbedingt anschauen!
Sie gelten als Speerspitze des melodischen Finnland-Todes und stehen zudem mit einem Bein im Power Metal. KALMAH haben seit ihrer Gründung kurz vor der Jahrtausendwende insgesamt sieben vielbeachtete Alben veröffentlicht, sich allerdings einige Jahre lang rar gemacht. Nun kehren sie mit voller Kraft zurück!
Einer der zahlreichen starken Vertreter der vielseitigen nationalen Death-Metal-Szene sind NAILED TO OBSCURITY aus Niedersachsen, die vor zehn Jahren ihren ersten Longplayer veröffentlicht haben und nun mit „King Delusion“ ihr drittes Album vorlegen. Wuchtiger, melodischer Todesstahl heißt die Devise!
Vor zehn Jahren feierte die schwedische Death/Thrash-Metal-Legende MERCILESS ihr 20-jähriges Bestehen mit einem zünftigen Auftritt auf unserem Festival. Geiler kann es nicht werden, dachten wir uns – doch werden nun eines Besseren belehrt: Das Quintett feiert jetzt sein 30-jähriges Bestehen, und zwar erneut auf dem Party.San Metal Open Air! Freut euch auf Karlén (Bass), Carlsson (Drums), Wallin (Guitars), Rogga (Röchel) und Stjärnvind (Guitars) – und auf echten Schweden-Death-Thrash!

News von NOIZGATE und DEAFGROUND RECORDS  Es wird heiß. Und damit sind nicht die zweistelligen Temperaturen gemeint die zeitweise wettermäßig erreicht wurden, heiß sind unsere News. Und richtig heiß hergehen wird es dann auf den Konzerten von unseren Bands, die sind nämlich gut unterwegs. Vielleicht sieht man sich ja irgendwo und kann gemeinsam einen lauen Frühlingsabend mit guter Musik genießen - wunderhübsch. Watch Out Stampede sind zurück und haben ein nagelneues Album im Gepäck! Längst eine feste Instanz innerhalb der deutschen Post-Hardcore-Szene, legen die Bremer mit „SVTVNIC“ ihr bisher brutalstes und facettenreichstes Werk vor.
Seit 2011 machen WATCH OUT STAMPEDE die Bühnen der Republik unsicher – und können mit zwei erfolgreichen Albumveröffentlichungen (REACHER, 2014 und TIDES, 2015) und Shows beim Reload Festival oder auf Wacken bereits eine ganze Reihe an Highlights in ihrer Bandgeschichte verbuchen. Mit knallenden Breakdowns, wütenden Shouts, glasklaren Refrains und einem poppigen Songwriting haben die fünf Bremer ihren ureigenen, mitreißenden Stil gefunden – wer da nicht mitmoshen will, muss taub sein! Doch es lohnt sich auch, ein Ohr (oder einen Blick) auf die Texte zu werfen, verbergen sich hinter dem partytauglichen Sound doch meinungsstarke Lyrics am Puls der Zeit, mit denen WATCH OUT STAMPEDE scheinbar en passant mit wachen Augen das Weltgeschehen um uns herum kommentieren.
Mit SVTVNIC legt das umtriebige Quintett nun nach: Das dritte Studioalbum (VÖ 24.03.2017) ist das bisher brutalste und zugleich melodischste Werk der Bremer, vielschichtig und facettenreich: Wütende Gitarrenwände und das tighte Zusammenspiel von Bass und Drums lassen in punkto Härte keine Wünsche offen; Pianos und Streicher geben dem Sound eine neue Fülle und runden die zehn Songs harmonisch ab. Thematisch befassen sichWATCH OUT STAMPEDE auf SVTVNIC abermals mit dem realen Irrsinn, der uns alltäglich aus bunten Bildschirmen entgegenflimmert. Ganz ohne erhobenen Zeigefinger. Denn wer ein Album SVTVNIC nennt und es dann mit einer bunten Fantasieblume ziert, weiß: Unsere Welt ist komplexer, als es auf den ersten Blick scheinen mag – und WATCH OUT STAMPEDE begegnen ihr mit ihrer ganz eigenen Mischung aus Ernst und Unsinn, Härte und Harmonie. Die Bewerbungsphase für unseren dritten BRUTAL VISION Sampler unter dem Motto „Core in the name of love“ läuft auf Hochtouren. Aber was hat es eigentlich mit diesem seltsam poppigen Artwork und der Idee der Hommage auf sich? Wir verraten’s Euch!
Das Covermotiv unseres neuen BRUTAL VISION SAMPLERS ist eine Adaption des Artworks zum Edwin Starr Album „War & Peace“ von 1970, gestaltet von Curtis McNair. Den darauf enthaltenen Song „War“ („What is it good for / Absolutely nothing“) kennt wahrscheinlich jeder: Einer der bekanntesten Antikriegssongs überhaupt, entstanden als Protest gegen den Vietnamkrieg.
Unser Artwork soll als Hommage verstanden werden; das Edwin Starr Motiv steht dabei aber eher stellvertretend für eine lange Reihe an Künstlern, die sich im Laufe der Geschichte mit ihrer Musik zum Weltgeschehen geäußert haben: Als Musiker hast Du eine Stimme und kannst etwas bewegen! Mit dem Covermotiv stellen wir uns in die Tradition all jener Musiker, die über Generationen hinweg dem Protest einen Sound gegeben haben.
Aber wie ist das Artwork von „War & Peace“ überhaupt zu verstehen? Das Original zeigt Edwin Starr als stilisierten Soldat mit Pickelhelm und Uniform und fröhlich tanzenden Hippie. Die beiden Charaktere sind einander gegenüber gestellt und bilden sowohl visuell, als auch inhaltlich einen starken Kontrast: Stramm Stehen vs. Tanzen, Krieg vs. Hedonismus, Leid vs. Verdrängung… Viele Interpretationen sind möglich. In Bezug zueinander werden die beiden Gestalten durch das sie umgebende Peacezeichen gesetzt, das als deutliche Aussage und Positionierung des Künstlers für Frieden zu verstehen ist. Diese Aussage teilen wir und sind überzeugt, dass die Message dieses ikonischen Artworks heute wieder aktueller ist denn je! Mit unserer Adaption wollen wir eine moderne, zeitgemäße Version des Motivs schaffen, die natürlich auch einen Bezug zu unserem
Label haben sollte: Als „Coverboys“ für BRUTAL VISION VOL. III fiel unsere Wahl daher auf Ando und Dennis von WATCH OUT STAMPEDE. Unser Cover zeigt ebenfalls links einen Soldat (Ando). Die Figur steht symbolisch für die vielen Krisen, die überall auf der Welt schwelen: Kriege, Terrorismus, Rechtspopulisten auf dem Vormarsch… Wir sind keine Schwarzseher – aber all das macht uns Sorgen. Lassen wir es nicht eskalieren!
Die rechte Figur (Dennis) entspricht optisch dem Klischeebild des vermeintlich unpolitischen Hipsters der Generation Social Media. Angeblich zu faul, aufzustehen und für Bürger- und Menschenrechte auf die Straße zu gehen; die sich darauf beschränke, bei Facebook das Profilbild zu ändern oder einen Betroffenheit heuchelnden Tweet abzusetzen, anstatt sich ernsthaft an den Debatten zu beteiligen. Mit anderen Worten: Es geht hier um die junge Generation – unsere, der auch die allermeisten unserer Künstler angehören. Dieses Klischeebild möchten wir unbedingt infrage stellen: Wir wissen, dass sich unsere Generation sehr viel ausgiebiger mit dem Weltgeschehen auseinandersetzt, als ihr nachgesagt wird. Entsprechend fordern wir (junge) Künstler auf, zusammen mit uns die Stimme zu erheben, laut zu werden, unsere friedliche Vision zu teilen und sich gegen den Stempel „YOLO-Generation“ zu wehren! Das die beiden Charaktere umgebende Peacezeichen und die Farbwahl (sanfte Pastelltöne, man könnte auch sagen: Kaugummifarben) stehen dabei symbolisch für unseren Aufruf für ein friedliches Miteinander und Deeskalation.
Ihr wollt mit Eurer Band dabei sein?! Dann bewerbt Euch noch bis zum 31.03.2017 für einen Slot auf BRUTAL VISION VOL. III! Alle Infos und das Bewerbungsformular findet Ihr unter:  www.brutalvision.de
Das neue Jahr fing mit einer Schockmeldung an: Gründungsmitglied Andres Leifeld steigt aus persönlichen Gründen bei THE LEGION:GHOST aus! Alles halb so wild, man ist sich nach wie vor grün und auch für den Job an der Gitarre gibt es bereits einen würdigen Nachfolger. Der neue Mann im Team heißt Christoph Budny und griff bereits für Black Thoughts Bleeding und Inari in die Saiten. Herzlich willkommen!
Einen Job zu vergeben haben dagegen STILLBIRTH.Auch hier wurde zum Jahresauftakt bekannt,dass Rhythmusgitarrist Philipp Schubert die Band verlässt. Der Posten ist seither vacant und die Hagener sind auf der Suche nach Ersatz.
Eine aktuelle Stellenausschreibung gibt es übrigens auch bei GREY SEASON. Nach einigen personellen Umstrukturierungen innerhalb der Band sind die Progmetaller nun auf der Suche nach einem neuen Bassisten, bzw. gern auch einer Bassistin.
Geile Live-Musik entspannt auf dem Sofa genießen geht jetzt auch - wir haben Facebook live ausprobiert und wollen es wieder tun. Neulich haben wir uns gedacht: Lass‘ mal feiern. Da darf Livemusik natürlich nicht fehlen.
OPERATION CHERRYTREE und Deafgrounds MAJOR ERD haben also die Hütte, bzw. Unsere Büroräume gerockt und nicht nur das leibhaftig anwesende Publikum begeistert, sondern auch die Zuschauer vor den Bildschirmen. Und weil uns und denen das so gut gefallen hat, Machen wir es nochmal. Die nächste Live-im-Internet- Sause ist für den 01.04.2017 angesetzt und zwei grandiose Bands sorgen für die Musik. Gespickt ist die Übertragung diesmal mit Interviews bzw. AMAs mit unseren Besuchern. Weitere Infos folgen via Facebook - also folgt dort NOIZGATE und Deafground um nichts zu verpassen.

VISCERA/// ‘ 3 | RELEASE YOURSELF THROUGH DESPERATE RITUALS ’ (Italy)
RELEASE DATE:
  May 05, 2017
RUNNING TIME: 46:38 minutes
GENRE: Psych Metal
FFO: Godflesh, Paradise Lost, Nasum, Hawkwind, Thou, Rorcal...
www.wooaaargh.com/viscera    www.wooaaargh.bandcamp.com/album/viscera-3
Viscera/// are an Italian experimental post-metal band and this is their third album.
The tag post-metal can mean almost anything at this stage in the game, and on 3: Release Yourself Through Desperate Rituals, Viscera/// show that they can pull off almost any style you want to name under its protective aegis.
In simple terms, I suppose, the band play psychedelic post-metal with extra helpings of blackened sludge.
The music is heavy and full of substance, weaving psychedelia in with weighty slabs of simple heaviness. A modern black metal influence can be felt on the songs, usually mixed in with dark sludge, technical doom and roaring metal.
The songs are long and allow the band full exploratory rights to the musical landscape. Across the tracks the band delve into most types of extreme music, from doom to sludge metal to blackened chaos and intense blast beats. You name it, it's probably on here somewhere. Viscera/// take an obvious relish in creating music that has a layered depth to it, one that compels you to take the time to explore and dive deeply into.
Viscera/// excel at the creation of dark atmospheres too, so don't think it's all about savage complexity and intricate harshness. Even when they're playing in full fiery flow they still manage to have an emotive side to them, and when they stop to really develop this, it's even more effective.
Yes, 3: Release Yourself Through Desperate Rituals is a heady, slightly unusual mix, especially when written down like this. The band hold everything together well though, and the various styles used throughout the album never feel disjointed or out of place; here's a band that make their influences work for them, producing long, engaging songs that have a lot of content with which to ensnare the listener's attentions.
Nasty, snarling screams tear out form the music like they're clawing their way into reality. Their singer really does have a feral scream that I can't quite get enough of. Other vocals appear, (there are quite a few guests on this release), cleans for example; although they're performed well, it's the main singer's screams that really get into my head.
Think a complex, disturbed mix of Thou, Rorcal, Knut, Johnny Truant, Zao and Neurosis. Think this, and be happy, as Viscera/// know how to write good music.

LUNATIC HOOKER – EMBRACING THE FILTH
Label:
Black Bow Records
Release Date: 17.04.17
Genre: Death Metal / Grindcore / Sludge
For fans of: Rotten Sound | Napalm Death | Nasum
The music business can be spirit crushing and soul destroying. Bands that start as groups of friends with a passion for music can end up disillusioned, with the flames of their passion near extinguished. This happened to George, Ross, Tim, Duncan and Rafael in their respective bands – but rather than let those last flickering embers burn out for good, they got together to forge a new entity and reignite the fire. The five friends got back to basics – a rehearsal room, some beer and blasting out the music they loved at insane volume and velocity. Every last ounce of fury and frustration was poured out in a barrage of blast beats. The dam holding back the anger burst and Lunatic Hooker came roaring, screaming, howling into the world.
Through that powerful, cathartic cleansing process, every band member began to reconnect with everything they had loved about extreme music in the first place and the fire quickly became an inferno of creativity and adrenaline. Before they knew it the band were ripping up stages with Magrudergrind, Fit For An Autopsy, Attan, Corrupt Moral Altar, Conjurer and Hang The Bastard, recording a monstrous, twisted cover of the Motörhead classic ‘(We Are) The Road Crew’ for a tribute album - and working on their full length debut.
Now that album is complete and straining at the leash, with the date of release set for April 17th on Black Bow Records. Mastered by Anaal Nathrakh’s Mick Kenney, Embracing The Filth features twelve tracks of punishing, pulverising death/grind, crackling with that irresistible rediscovered electricity. There’s so much more to this album than just that exhilarating rush though. The songs have been immaculately crafted and are overflowing with fantastic, memorable riffs, wicked hooks and searing lead work. From the explosive opener, ‘My God Is Bigger Than Yours’ to the crushing sludge landslide of ‘Sarlac’, Embracing The Filth is a stunning demonstration of just how captivating and accomplished truly extreme music can be. With artwork created by Dan Capp of Winterfylleth, Embracing The Filth is the complete package, the real deal and those flames are burning higher than ever.
Line-up:
George – Vocals
Ross – Guitar
Tim – Guitar
Duncan - Bass and vocals

Legendary Swedish Death Metallers SARCASM have returned with WITHIN THE SPHERE OF ETHEREAL MINDS. The album will be released April 28 on Dark Descent Records. A lyric video for new song "In The Grip of Awakening Times" is available at this location.
Following the unearthing of their first proper full-length, Burial Dimensions (originally recorded in 1994 and officially released in 2016), the new long player is in a sense the payoff of a long, bumpy history that included demos, compilations, and an EP (Scattered Ashes in 2000). Indeed, it is the full realization of SARCASM's blackened Swedish Death Metal sound, yet with an identity all its own.
While the music of all eight tracks was written by guitarist Peter Laitinen, he somehow did find that perfect balance in between that very specific sense of melody that could only be summarized as 'typically Swedish' (fans of the early No Fashion records catalogue will know exactly what we mean here), raging speed and brutality. With one foot firmly planted in the mid-90's and another in the present, SARCASM is no nostalgia trip, but a genuine return to form to that specific mix of black and death-metal, before saccharine riffing and cheesy clean vocals took over and ruined it all. Moving from the melancholic leads of "Embodiment of Source," they answer with the blast-o-thon that is "Scars of a Land Forgotten" or the epic-to-kill-all-epic that is the eight-minute-plus "A Black Veil for Earth."
Track List:
1. Bloodsoaked Sunrise
2. From the Crimson Fog They Emerged
3. Embodiment of Source
4. Scars of a Land Forgotten
5. In the Grip of Awakening Times
6. Silent Waves Summoned Your Inner Being
7. A Black Veil for Earth
8. The Drowning Light at the Edge of the Dawn
BIO
What a journey it has been.  Ok, technically speaking, this isn't their first proper full-length - 'Burial Dimensions' is.  Although 'Burial Dimensions' was recorded in 1994, it remained unheard in the vaults until seventeen years later and was finally released as a stand-alone album in 2016.  Despite an initial short run, Sarcasm produced no less than six demos and went through some drastic stylistic changes in the process, starting with a quite basic gore n' guts death-metal sound only to end up with some epic and melodic mix of black and death-metal.  All of this over the course of only four years... So there was an unfinished-business vibe in the air.  No one thought it would take the band over two decades to make it a reality.
After a first, short-lived reunion in 1997, a newly redesigned line-up of the band finally got together in 2015 with Heval, Oscar Karlsson (Defleshed, Gates of Ishtar etc.) on drums who had previously played in the band in between 1993 and 1994, former axeman Henrik Forslund now on bass, Fredrik Wallenberg and newcomer Peter Laitinen on guitars.  But as they were getting ready to work on some new music for their forthcoming sophomore album, tragedy struck with the unexpected death of Oscar, whose hard-hitting yet extremely precise style had become a massive part of the band's identity.  After few weeks of disarray, the band vowed to carry on, enlisting the veteran Matte Modin (also from Defleshed, Dark Funeral, Firespawn and so on) who actually was part for a while of Embalmed, Wallenberg pre-Sarcasm band.
Eventually, both Wallenberg and Forslund had to bow out right before the recording, to be replaced respectively by Anders Eriksson, who had previously been part of the band during the 'Burial Dimensions' era, and Jonas Söder.  Amazingly enough this doesn't prevent 'Within the Sphere of Ethereal Minds' to be a defiant triumph. Actually, it feels as if all those setbacks and personal struggles only strengthened their will to recapture 'Burial Dimensions' blazing stand and run with it even further. 
Heval Bozarslan - Vocals
Peter Laitinen - Guitars

NECROMUTILATOR – “ RIPPING BLASPHEMY”
Origin: ITALY
Label: TERROR FROM HELL RECORDS
Genre: BLACK DEATH METAL
Release Date: APRIL 2017
After a demotape and the debut album “Eucharistic Mutilations”, it was time for Necromutilator to unleash another attack in the form of four new tracks of uncompromised, unpolished, raw and evil Black Death, with some Thrash hints. Necromutilator and Terror From Hell Records join forces again for this slab of audio assault which will appeal those who rabidly hails Bathory, Venom, Sarcofago, Sadistic Intent and Nifelheim.
Firmly rooted in their past approach, Necromutilator purveys a huge dose of filthy and aggressive riffs, cruel and murderous vocals, detonating bass and unmerciful, thundering drums. Ripping Blasphemy is a barbaric, wild and combative manifesto which upholds the band as one of the best acts in the Italian underground.

OPPOSER (Spain) - 'DARKEST PATH'
Genre - Old School Death Metal
Release Date - February 17th, 2017
Record Label - Morbid Shine Productions (Spain)
For fans of - OBITUARY, MASTER, SEPULTURA, BOLT THROWER, GRAVE, HYPOCRISY, PARADISE LOST, AMORPHIS, MALEVOLENT CREATION
OPPOSER from Spain have been around since 1992 and even 25 years later, they've come out with a very solid album that encompasses the classic death metal sound along with the thrash metal influences. It's not easy to write an album like this. It's extremely riffy, redolent of bands like BOLT THROWER, OBITUARY, HYPOCRISY, MALEVOLENT CREATION and early SEPULTURA and the surprising part is how they're able to merge it all together, even imbibing melodic touches of AMORPHIS and PARADISE LOST, and serve it with a lethal dose of thrash. The execution is particularly remarkable and so is the overall treatment. Here's everything that you'd probably like in your dream death metal album of an old school nature, but OPPOSER have actually managed to pull that off over here. 'Darkest Path' is an authentic album of old school death metal music with the right intent, sound and even atmosphere. Morbid Shrine Productions have unravelled a gem.
Track list: 
1. Straight to Hell
2. Osiris Land
3. Agony
4. Holy Lies
5. Wrecking Low
6. In the Silent Dawn

LP / CD / Digital (May 25th, 2017)
Genre - Dissonant Black Metal
Release Date - May 25th, 2017
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
Australian black metal band NORSE surpass everything they've done in the past. 'Pest' was a unique slice of harsh, dissonant black metal but their new album is a stunning progression while retaining the band's trademark, futuristic yet exceptionally bleak sound. 'The Divine Light Of A New Sun' is a tour de force of weirdly rhythmic and catchy black metal while remaining true to its original aura. Virtually peerless, NORSE create music that is haunting, incisive and lethal. Albums like these don't come out often. This is the future of black metal, and the future is uncompromising.

1. Supreme Vertical Ascent 
2. Drowned By Hope 
3. Telum Vitae

Hi – Chris and Paul from Imperative PR here.It is with a degree of trepidation that we announce the arrival of BASEMENT  TORTURE KILLINGS to the Imperative family. We have agreed to help them spread the sickness of their savage new album, There’s Something About Beryl. LUCKILY the album is an incredibly intense onslaught of stunning, extreme death metal, because these really aren’t the sort of people you want to say ‘no’ to. What these deeply disturbed individuals have created is an electrifying album of fearsome death and grind, fuelled by an uncontrollable obsession with torment, torture and death. In the dark world of ultra-extremity BTK stand out like a mountainous bonfire of the burning dead.
Each self-professed killer is as masterful with their instruments of sonic destruction as they are with their tools of dismemberment. Tarquin, a man known for his love of unfashionable knitwear and ladies tights, tears wickedly exhilirating leads from the neck of his guitar as savagely as he tears the throats from his victims. Bassist and disgraced surgeon Dr. Krauss, along with enigmatic fiend and drummer extraordinaire Faceless Killer combine to form a rhythm section of frenzied bludgeoning and beating. And then there’s Beryl...as the album title notes, there is definitely something about Beryl. Something very wrong and downright frightening.
As this album plays you’ll be caught up in its whirlwind intensity, consumed by its breathtaking brutality, but when the music stops and everything goes quiet you’ll be checking under the bed for monsters. Some monsters are very, very real...and they’re coming for you.
There’s Something About Beryl should already be hiding in the shadows of your Inbox, unpacking its collection of bloodstained power tools. If for some reason you can’t see your link, please just e-mail us at contact@imperativepr.co.uk  and we’ll get it resent asap. The band are available for interview NOW – so, if you’re feeling brave, get in touch at that same address – contact@imperativepr.co.uk to make arrangements, or just send your questions through and we’ll get them answered as quickly and safely as possible.
Thanks for all your support! Chris & Paul

"Wir sind Kinder der Videotheken-Generation und aufgewachsen mit Filmen der Herren Fulci, Argento, Deodato, Margheriti, D'Amato, Bava und vieler weiterer Filmschaffender aus Italien.
Auch die Soundtracks dieser Filme, geschaffen von Künstlern wie Ortolani, Frizzi, Gombini oder Simonetti, sind einzigartig und faszinierend.
Diese Filme haben mich fast mein ganzes Leben lang begleitet und Eisregen ohne diese Filme wäre quasi undenkbar.
Die Idee zu diesem Album trage ich schon eine sehr lange Zeit mit mir herum, nun nach der Rückkehr von Fröbing in unser Bandgefüge war es endlich an der Zeit, genau dieses Album umzusetzen, da er die Filme und ihre Musik ebenso schätzt wie ich.
Es gab Überlegungen, das Album als Projekt unter anderem Bandnamen zu veröffentlichen - aber in den anderthalb Jahren der Arbeit an diesem Werk ist es 100% zu einem Eisregen Album gewachsen und trägt alle Charakteristika in sich, für die unsere Band seit Jahrzehnten steht: es ist morbide, höchst kreativ und meilenweit entfernt vom Metal-Mainstream dieser Tage.
Es ist unsere Art 'Danke' zu sagen einer Epoche filmischen Wahnsinns Made in Italy, die heutzutage unmöglich wäre und wir freuen uns sehr, diese Vision ab dem 05. Mai mit euch teilen zu dürfen!
Fulci lebt, zumindest in unseren Herzen."
Liedtitel wie 'Nahe der Friedhofsmauer', 'Torso', 'Menschenfresser' und 'Satan der Rache' sprechen bereits eine deutliche Sprache...
Und auch live kann man das neue Material umgehend bestaunen.

RUDRA (Singapore) - 'ENEMY OF DUALITY'

For fans of - NECROS CHRISTOS, ARALLU, CULT OF FIRE, NILE, ORPHANED LAND, HEATHEN BEAST, MELECHESH, ROTTING CHRIST
'Vedic metal' pioneers since the early '90s return this year with their most ambitious album till date. Having worked hard over the years to forge a unique sound that's a sublime blend of Indian classical music rooted in ancient spirituality and extreme metal encompassing death metal, black metal and thrash metal music, RUDRA have influenced many and more importantly, have set standards. Unheralded overlords of Asia, RUDRA have a cult following that remains mysteriously loyal, as they hone a sound that's probably unparalleled. Their latest album, again founded on the principles of Vedic spirituality, extemporizes on the conventional extreme metal template and achieves hitherto unknown sonic effects. Indian classical instruments such as sitar, flute, tablas (Indian percussion) and even a didgeridoo are used for this album, along with female vocals and ritualistic chanting to emanate a genuine, spiritual expression. 'Enemy of Duality' is destined to be a landmark from the Orient, one that doesn't abandon the ancient roots and blends the traditional sounds and philosophies seamlessly into music that's at once challenging and hypnotic.
Track list: 
1. Abating the Firebrand
2. Slay the Demons of Duality 
3. Perception Apparent 
4. Acosmic Self 
5. Root of Misapprehension 
6. Seer of All

Over the years MY SILENT WAKE have become one of the most admired bands in the doom metal scene, with incredible albums like 2015s stunning Damnatio Memoriae. However, what has made them a truly unique entity is the breadth and depth of their creativity. Not content simply to craft albums of formidable, melancholy metal they have also stripped their music down to its acoustic essentials, both live and on album and with releases like the acclaimed EYE OF THE NEEDLE, explored the world of dark ambience as well. Now, with their first album for new label Opa Loka Records, My Silent Wake offer something different again, with the most experimental, atmospheric and imaginative release of their storied career.
Invitation To Imperfection combines My Silent Wake’s mastery of the ambient and acoustic and then adds more... Friends and associates from the extended My Silent Wake family offered their own personal touches to the recordings and an array of instruments were used to bring these songs to life; from zithers to mandolins, pump organs to karimbas, they all contribute their own colours and textures to the magic. Multiple recording locations were also used, as the band wandered far and wide harvesting the sounds that resonated with the vision in their hearts. The result is an enthralling album that is, in its own quiet way, as powerful as any of My Silent Wake’s magnificent doom albums.
Ever present in all that My Silent Wake do, is Ian Arkley and he offered a few thoughts on their latest creation:
“It is not about virtuosity, high class production or striving to be noticed or to impress... it is about trying to create a balance which allows for things not being perfect whilst trying to create an interesting track. This isn't just My Silent Wake ambient or just My Silent Wake acoustic; this is a mixture of the two which we sincerely hope you enjoy.”
Invitation To Imperfection is a deeply affecting album. It’s thought provoking and dream invoking, ing reflection and revelation, a very special album from a band who are a true musical treasure of untold worth, with a rich history and an exciting future.
Genre: Doomed Dark Ambient
For fans of: Arcana | Cities Last Broadcast | Lustmord
Line-up:
Ian Arkley – Vocals, Lead & Rhythm Guitar
Addam Westlake – Bass
Gareth Arlett – Drums

DRUG HONKEY (US) - 'CLOAK OF SKIES'
LP / CD / Box Set / Digital
Genre - Atmospheric Death/Doom Metal
Release Date - May 5th, 2017
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - GODFLESH, JESU, THE NIHILISTIC FRONT, DISEMBOWELMENT, INVERLOCH, SCORN, LURK
US band DRUG HONKEY have always been a step ahead of their peers, if there were any in the first place. Their brand of death/doom is something nightmarish, vaguely psychedelic and exudes a post-apocalyptic quality too. They've taken the vision of GODFLESH and added their own twist to it, making it darker, surreal and morbid. And yet there's a strangely reassuring quality to their atmospheric music. There's a form of tenacity in their music of the same kind that will have you crawl ahead in life despite all its inherent ugliness pinning you down. They are taking things to a different level, with guest contributions from the legend himself, Justin K. Broadrick (GODFLESH, JESU) and Bruce Lamont (YAKUZA, CORRECTIONS HOUSE) with his saxophone eeriness, and having the hand-painted artwork of Paolo Girardi (INQUISITION, CHTHE'ILIST) represent the pulsating sickness of this ambitious and unconventional release. 
Track list: 
1. Pool of Failure (5:44)
2. Sickening Wasteoid (6:12)
3. Outlet of Hatred (6:48)
4. (It’s Not) The Way (6:36)
5. The Oblivion of an Opiate Nod (10:00) (Ft. Bruce Lamont of YAKUZA, CORRECTIONS HOUSE)
6. Cloak of Skies (8:11)
7. Pool of Failure (Remix by Justin K. Broadrick of GODFLESH, JESU remix) (6:29)

BASEMENT TORTURE KILLINGS – THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT BERYL
LABEL: GRINDSCENE RECORDS
RELEASE DATE: 07.04.17
Genre: Death Metal / Goregrind
For fans of: Cannibal Corpse | Avulsed | Prostitute Disfigurement | General Surgery
Line-up:
Tarquin – Guitars & Vocals
Dr. Krauss – Bass
Faceless Killer – Drums
Beryl - Vocals
Some music was meant to stay underground, or so the saying goes – and some music was meant to stay in a filthy basement, knee-deep in gore, knitting a new pair of socks with someone’s entrails. Welcome to the deranged world of Basement Torture Killings...
The original line-up of BTK first escaped from their asylums, secure units and maximum security prisons back in 2007. They were drawn together by fate and stayed together due to their mutual interest in death metal, grindcore and killing. They evaded capture long enough to record a demo, an EP and two albums, The Second Cumming, which was released through Arcane Productions in 2011 and the hellish A Night Of Brutal Torture, unleashed by Grindscene Records in 2014.
Sadly, while touring in support of that monstrous album, only guitarist Tarquin was sufficiently careful when disposing of the leftovers from his ‘extracurricular activities’, the rest of the band falling prey to the ever zealous police. Tarquin was left to stalk the sewers and cesspits of the world, searching through the ranks of the sick and psychotic for those gifted enough to continue his crusade of metal and barbarity. Eventually he found them...Dr. Krauss, an unlicensed ‘surgeon’ with a bloodlust to match his bass playing. Faceless Killer, a barely controllable beast, only content when battering and bruising drum skins or human skin. And Beryl...wide eyed but far from innocent and perhaps the only creature capable of making her bestial band mates uneasy and uncomfortable. Yes, there’s definitely something about Beryl...
So what better title for the latest album from Basement Torture Killings? There’s Something About Beryl takes not only the madness to new levels, but the sheer musicality as well. Conscienceless monsters they most certainly are, but BTK can play! You won’t hear a more intense, more terrifyingly convincing slab of death or grind anywhere. Tarquin’s solos tear through these songs like power tools through flesh, the onslaught of the bass and drums is utterly overwhelming and then there’s Beryl – a chilling presence of unfathomable inhumanity and sadistic cruelty, repulsive and yet compellingly enticing. This album is a sickness, as infectious as the plague. This band are unnerving, dangerous and addictive.

NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS NORDJEVEL ANNOUNCE DATES FOR FIRST US TOUR
Black Metallers NORDJEVEL are set to play 14 dates in the USA in May, culminating in an appearance at the Maryland Deathfest - this will be the first time that NORDJEVEL plays in North America.  Supporting throughout the tour will be New Yorkers IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT and the routing is as follows:
MAY
Thu 11: Saint Vitus, Brooklyn, NY
Fri 12: The Smiling Moose, Pittsburgh, PA
Sat 13: The Summit, Columbus, OH
Sun 14: Al's Bar, Lexington, KY
Mon15: East Room, Nashville, TN
Tue 16: Siberian, New Orleans, LU

Mon 22: Ground Zero, Spartenburg, SC
Tue 23: Slim's, Raleigh, NC
Wed 24: Strange Matter, Richmond, VA
Fri 26: Maryland Deathfest, Baltimore, MD
NORDJEVEL was founded by frontman Doedsadmiral (SVARTELDER, DOEDSVANGR, ENEPSIGOS) and guitarist Nord (FATAL IMPACT, TVANGESTE, BYRDI), and, making use of Doedsadmiral's considerable skills at bringing together musicians who are not only hugely experienced, but who also share the same musical ideas and ideals, the bands ranks were quickly swelled by MARDUK's Fredrik Widigs on drums, and former RAGNAROK bassist DzeptiCunt.  With NORDJEVEL's distinctive sound firmly set, the band recently announced the addition of another guitarist to their lineup in the shape of Morten "Noralf" Kleftaas, who had previously appeared with the band as a session live guitarist. 
Having been courted by a number of labels on the strength of some rough mixes, NORDJEVEL signed with Osmose Productions and released their debut full-length album in 2016. The self-titled album was an instant success both with the critics and fans, and it became clear very quickly that demand for the band to appear live was something that needed to be addressed, and NORDJEVEL became a fully functioning live entity, as opposed to just a studio-based project.
Currently working on their next full-length album, NORDJEVEL have just released a limited edition 7" EP entitled "Krigsmakt". With artwork by Khaos Diktator Design, the three-track EP is limited to 500 copies, the B side of which is silk screen printed and comes with a printed inner sleeve .

Memento Mori summons yet another ponderous beast from the crypts and unleashes it upon humankind.

Eschewing all trends, MARTYRDOOM trudge defiantly, blasting their noxious blend of death metal and doom metal music, urging cohorts to surrender to them at once.

BUIOINGOLA: Italian Darkwave/Neocrust Shadowdwellers To Release Final Mesmerizing Album "IL NUOVO MARE" On March 31st - Track Streaming At CVLT Nation And Metalitalia.com.
We are extremely excited to announce the release of Il nuovo mare. the new and final album by mysterious Italian experimental darkwave/post-doom band  Buioingola .
Perhaps reaching the end of their obscure but unparalleled existence, Buiongola present their swansong to the world in the form of a brand new monolith of obsidian black sonic affliction. This brand new - and perhaps final - full-length player by the now dissolved tuscan three-piece is an ulterior step the band has taken toward an unfathomable abyss, shaped once again by the band’s signature strain of agonizing, shoegazy crust and haunting post-punk, interwoven with dismal dark wave dirges, towering black/doom passages, and martial industrial tapestries. Over the span of thirty-five suffocating minutes of darkness-clad misery Buiongola show us once again their mastery in weaving together something unique and unlike anything else: a doomed sonic shrine of crestfallen dark punk-metal magnificence where the core essence of bands like Planks, His Hero Is Gone, Godflesh/Jesu, Sisters of Mercy, The Cure, Neurosis, Amebix, and Altar of Plagues sublimate into the arms of omnipotent gloom.
CVLT Nation and  Metalitalia.com  are now streaming the darkness-clad behemoth sonic affliction of second track "Latenza" - look out for more track streams to surface on other media outlets in the weeks leading up to release date.
Il nuovo mare drops digitally and as a clear and black 12" vinyl LP on March 31 2017 - and can now be pre-ordered on our store or Bandcamp. Please note: Shove Records (IT), Unquiet Records (PL), and Sangue Dischi (IT) will handle the European release.
Tracklist
01. Polvere
02. Latenza
03. Irriconoscibile
04. Attesa
05. Eclisse
06. Silenzio
07. Il giorno dopo
Please contact Sentient Ruin at hate@sentientruin.com for any press and or ordering inquiries.
As per usual we are seeking all types of coverage: reviews, interviews with the band, track streams, features, and or any other content you would like to work on with us to help us promote this band and their release and spread the word with the public. T​hank you sincerely on behalf of us and the band for the attention given to this release, we deeply appreciate it!  Kindest Regards, Sentient Ruin Laboratories

GODFLESH TAKES ON MORTIIS’  ‘THE GREAT LEAP’ ON FREE DOWNLOAD SINGLE
OSLO – Mortiis is offering a second single and free download - “The Great Leap” remixed by industrial metal godfathers GODFLESH has launched today. The track is taken from the upcoming “The Great Corrupter” remix album, penned for release on 21st April via Omnipresence Production.
Head over to the following media partners to check out Godflesh’s take on the song.
CANADA
ITALY
HUNGARY
SPAIN
PORTUGAL
RUSSIA

Mortiis comments: “Godflesh was groundbreaking in bridging the gap between industrial and extreme metal in the ‘90s. Having their take on our song is simply amazing. Without Godflesh, a lot of fans would not have opened their minds to different genres of extreme music.”
The track is available as a double single to download from
 
https://mortiis.bandcamp.com/album/mortiis-the-great-leap-free-d-l-single  and also includes a remix of “Hard to Believe” by Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson).
Previously Mortiis offered fans the first glimpse into The Great Corrupter with a free download of the ferocious “Doppelganger”/”The Shining Lamp of God,” remixed by German industrial legends Die Krupps and club heroes Leæther Strip, respectively, last month. The single is still available at the Mortiis´ Bandcamp site: https://mortiis.bandcamp.com
“The Great Corrupter” is a collection of tracks from Mortiis’ “The Great Deceiver” album, deconstructed and masterfully “corrupted” by Chris Vrenna, Rhys Fulber, Die Krupps, John Fryer, GODFLESH, Merzbow, Apoptygma Berzerk, In Slaughter Natives, Raison D´Etre, Je$us Loves Amerika, PIG, and many more. The record will also contain unreleased material from the original recording sessions.
Each of the record’s formats will be as its own art package with collectible artwork, including limited edition colored vinyl and a limited edition DVD sized double-CD Digipak with additional exclusive remixes and many other extras.
Ahead of the release of the album, Mortiis will embark on a nine-date UK co-headline run this March with PIG, aka industrial pioneer Raymond Watts, ahead of the album’s release.

For over 15 years, industrial metal band NOCTIFERIA from Ljubljana have been the lighttower of the slovenian metal scene. Their first album Baptism At Savica Fall broke new ground of Slovenian extreme metal back in 1998. They came from badly developed scene, but they have managed overcome the small market and stepped alongside European metal scene. Members of Noctiferia, very young at that time and led by Igor Nardin and Uroš Lipovec, created black / pagan album that brought them place in european underground and became a cult in their homecountry.
 The doors for Noctiferia opened, and they enetered bravely. They continued to develop their music. After a few changes in line-up and style, they get rid of folk elements and headed toward black / death metal. The result is undisputed masterpiece Per Aspera. Morbid, dark album with massive and mighty sound definitively left big mark on Slovenian metal scene at the beginning of new millenium. Noctiferia set new standards, creative and productionwise on the still a lit helpless scene. Per Aspera received extremely good reviews in Slovenia and abroad. Video for track Fond Of Lies was #1 on Slovenian national TV for 8 weeks! Tours outside their homecountry followed. Noctiferia shared stages with the ones like Malevolent Creation and Aborted.
Once again it was time for changes. They have met Peter Tägtgren on Metalcamp 2004 and he did mixing and mastering for next Noctiferia album, titled Slovenska morbida. It was recorded in Slovenia and finished in Abyss Studios in Sweden by Tägtgren himself. Noctiferia explored the field of industrial metal, therefore this the most experimental Noctiferia album to date. The album was supported with tours and gigs with some of the biggest names in metal, including Samael. Friendship with Mass from Samael led to making a preproduction for the next Noctiferia album together. They took the best of both Per Aspera in Slovenska morbida and joined those elements on Death Culture. Death Culture was an important step in their career as it was released on at that time influental label Listenable Records.
After 2011 European tour with mighty In Flames band started to write new material for their next studio album PAX which was mixed and mastered in Fascination Street Studios in Sweden by legendary names Johan Örnborg & Jens Bogren and released in 2014.
The band’s style ranges from the pagan black metal on their debut record “Baptism at Savica Fall” in 1997 to the technical black death metal of “Per Aspera” (2003) and from the rich and varied extreme metal sounds of “Slovenska Morbida” (2006) to the industrial metal presented on “Death Culture” in 2010 and PAX 2014.
In 2015 NOCTIFERIA was invited to perform an acoustic set live on national radio RTV SLO.
Seeing as the group apparently has no difficulties switching styles, it responded to the challenge of the legendary “Unplugged” (Izštekani) radio show on Val 202.
The band stripped songs from its last three albums into acoustic versions, changing their sound and arrangements and shuffling them into various genres – even jazz, gypsy swing and country – or peppering them with Spanish temperament. Enhanced by a horn section, a string quartet and female vocals. Due to the great response of audience band decided to record newly arranged songs for their next studio album.
As a result we present you completly acoustic record under the name TRANSNATURA which you can listen below!
Until this day NOCTIFERIA’s career contained numerous shows and tours with famous metal bands just as gigs on Europe’s big festivals – and now the band is opening a new chapter in their history. Noctiferia is a band whose creative vision is always directed forward, to progress and evolution.

MORDANT (Sweden) - 'DEMONIC SATANIC' 
Genre - Death/Black/Thrash Metal
Release Date - November 30th, 2016
Record Label - To The Death Records (Sweden)
For fans of - Dissection, Nifelheim, Bolzer, Desaster, Naglfar, Sepulchral Curse, Cemetery Winds, Dawn
Long-running Swedish black/death metal band MORDANT are following the path of DISSECTION and NIFELHEIM, playing sharp, melody-tinged black/death metal but with a gnarly thrashy approach. The album gets even more thrashier and gritter as it progresses, and tosses in a SABBAT cover for good measure. This is a rare instance of the band retaining the Swedish sound while going on to play a blend of at least three styles. The album gets more engrossing with each listen and the flavour is something that will have you coming back for more. To The Death Records have released one of the best albums in this unique style and it's definitely worth looking into. 
Track list: 
1.    Vengeance from the Dark    03:25     
2.    Devastating Storm... Evil Holocaust    03:01

Finnish melodic extreme metal quintet A LIE NATION will release their second EP, called "BEGIN HATE", April 5th 2017 via Inverse Records.
"Begin Hate" is rough, yet melodic, extreme metal with an original touch that fuses elements from black and death metal with rock-like straightforwardness. The four song EP is a study of negative mindscapes of the human species and it spans from extreme aggression to apocalyptic and self-destructive atmospheres. Heavy hitting rhythms and razor sharp vocals are balanced out with intriguing melodies and smoothly grinding bass lines. "Begin Hate" does not bow to anyone or anything, but is sure to leave a mark with its energetic destructiveness.
"Begin Hate" was recorded during the year 2016 at Oulu, Finland. Recording, mixing, mastering and the cover art has been fully produced within A Lie Nation.
An official video "Shooting The Messenger" is available here:

SOMNIUM NOX (Australia) - 'TERRA INANIS'
LP / CD / Box Set / Digital (May 15th, 2017)
Genre - Atmospheric Black Metal
Release Date - May 15th, 2017
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
From Australia, atmospheric black metal band SOMNIUM NOX conjure up their full length and it's out of this world. 'Terra Inanis' has three monolithic tracks that segue into one another, each creating a wonderful and consistent atmosphere that will have you rivetted with goosebumps all over. Didgeridoos set the atmosphere from the start and the music, backed by the able drumming of a NORSE member, takes off into uncharted territories. From then on it's an oscillating trip between different states of consciousness, fuelled by music that seems to have transcendental qualities. This is atmospheric black metal that is deeper than most and stirs up emotions that were thought to be nonexistent. An exceptional and I daresay a subliminal album, 'Terra Inanis' causes an emotive purge, a deep cleansing by evoking the sounds of nature and ancient culture.
Track list: 
1. Soliloquy of Lament 
2. The Alnwick Apotheosis 
3. Transcendental Dysphoria
Line up: 
Nocturnal - Guitars, Bass, Didgeridoo 
Ashahalasin - Vocals 
Forge - Drums 
Olkoth - Keys 
J.A.H – Guitars

Neuer EDEN-WEINT-IM-GRAB-Dokufilm: Die Entstehung von "NA(C)HTODREISE", Teil 1 online! Die Berliner Dark-Metal-Formation Eden Weint Im Grab hat viel Zeit und Mühe investiert, um im Rahmen eines Dokufilms einen Einblick hinter die Kulissen der Band und insbesondere die Entstehung ihres kommenden Albums "Na(c)htodreise" (VÖ: 31.03.) zu geben. Die Doku "Die Entstehung von Na(c)htodreise" dauert insgesamt ca. 80 Minuten und wird nun in 8 Teilen im Wochentakt online veröffentlicht.

Die Metalcore-Energiebündel aus Sheffield, England WHILE SHE SLEEPS haben das Musikvideo ihres brandneuen Songs 'Silence Speaks' feat. Oliver Sykes von BRING ME THE HORIZON veröffentlicht.
Schaut euch das Video hier an: https://youtu.be/eH6tqXQNWUA
WHILE SHE SLEEPS verwandelten eine leeres Lagerhaus im Herzen ihrer Heimatstadt Sheffield in ihr eigenes Mehrzweckstudio um ihr neues Album »You Are We« zu produzieren. Das ist nicht das erste Mal, dass die Band ihren ganz persönlichen Ort für sowas hat - die Debüt-EP »The North Stands For Nothing« aus dem Jahr 2010 wurde in einem Home-Studio namens The Barn aufgenommen - doch mit diesem neuen, ganz persönlichen Ort der Kreativität ging die Band noch einen Schritt weiter. “There’s always been a very DIY aspect to this band,” erklärt Sänger Lawrence ‘Loz’ Taylor “so going it alone a bit more now just reiterates that to everyone. The Barn was a very important place for us – it’s where we grew as friends and it was where we hung out and could be creative – so the idea with this new space is that it gives us a lot more creative space. There’s a studio and live room, and we have space now to achieve what we want to achieve as a band. This place is going to house us for a good few years.”
Es ist auch ein Ort an dem die Band versucht die Barriere zwischen ihnen und ihren Fans noch weiter aufzubrechen. Als Teil der PledgeMusic-Kampagne des neuen Albums hatten Fans die Möglichkeit ins Studio zu kommen und beim Videodreh von 'Hurricane' mitzuwirken. “That was absolutely crazy,” schießt Taylor hervor. “I’m still aching from that! But the special thing is that every kid who came down for the video shoot actually helped make the album happen. And to that extent they made this warehouse capable of living.” “Now more than ever,” fügt Sean Long (Gitarre) hinzu, “our fans know that it’s them making all of this possible for us. The divide between artist and fan is ridiculous, because there are no fans without the artist and there’s no artist without the fans. They go hand in hand together as one absolute thing, and I really like that we can see that in play with what we’ve been doing. It’s very reassuring to see that support right in front of us.”
Produziert von Carl Bown, der auch »Brainwashed« gemacht hat, beinhalten die Songs von »You Are We« mehr Energie, mehr Fokus und mehr Entschlossenheit als jemals zuvor. Songs wie 'Hurricane' und die erste Single 'Civil Isolation' führen die Entwicklung der Band als eine der am stärksten inspirierenden, zügellosesten und wichtigsten Stimmen in der britischen Musik von heute fort. Während diese gewaltigen Hymnen ein klares Bild des Post-Brexit-Britannien malen, stehen die Songs für die universellsten und vor Allem auch persönlichsten in der Karriere der Band.

Hallo Leute, es wird höchste Zeit für ein paar neue Bandbestätigungen für das PARTY.SAN METAL OPEN AIR 2017. Wir graben heute tief in der Ursuppe der Szene und hoffen, dass euch die Neuzugänge so gut gefallen wie uns. Wer sein Ticket noch immer nicht hat, wird hier fündig: www.cudgel.de
Underground-Kult vom Feinsten! DEMILICH, einst 1990 gegründet und im Jahr 2006 beerdigt, haben ihr Grab verlassen, um den Planeten erneut mit brutalem Death Metal zu überziehen! Die Finnen hatten und haben einen völlig eigenständigen und einzigartigen Sound, denn sie lockern ihr voluminöses Geballer mit hochmelodischen Gitarrenharmonien auf. Muss man gehört und gesehen haben!
Okay, wir geben es zu: DEW-SCENTED gehören einfach auf das Party.San Metal Open Air. Ab und zu brauchen wir (und ihr!) eine Erwachsenenportion an kalorienreicher Thrash- und fetter Death-Kost. Fronter Leffe, eine Rampensau, wie sie im Buche steht (im Strafgesetzbuch), und seine Mannen liefern euch Geschwindigkeit pur und Aggression im Familienpack. Anschnallen!
Kuala-Lumpur, der Millionenmoloch von Malaysia. Hier sind HUMILATION beheimatet. Seit 2009 aktiv, hat der Death-Metal-Vierer bereits sage und schreibe sieben Alben veröffentlicht – und macht sich nun auf die große Reise von Asien nach Thüringen. Für freuen uns auf diese Extraportion Death Metal.
http://www.party-san.de
Wir freuen uns, Euch das neue Album der schwedischen Roots-Rocker SIENA ROOT präsentieren zu können.  Die Herren sind bereits seit 2004 unterwegs und gehören somit zu den Wegbereitern der Szene und nicht zu den Heerscharen von Trittbrettfahrern.  Ihren Enthusiasmus haben sie sich bis heute unüberhörbar bewahrt.
Mehr noch:
  "A DREAM OF LASTING PEACE" ist ein echtes Machtwerk geworden, das auf einem feinen Grat zwischen erwachsener Souveränität und kreativer Neugier balanciert.
Bei SIENA ROOT ist nach wie vor alles vintage: Attitüde, Equipment, Frisuren…
Für "A Dream Of Lasting Peace" luden die Kerle ihre sieben Sachen in ihren Van und fuhren für eine Woche in die schwedischen Wälder, wo von der musikalischen Inspiration höchstens der Geruch von echten Magnetbändern ablenkt.
Und so fand zusammen, was zusammen gehört:
  Neue Ideen und liebgewonnene Tradition: Schwere Drum-Grooves, pumpende Bass-Riffs, rasante Fights zwischen Gitarre und Orgel und famoser Gesang. All das erklingt mit einer klassischen, aber superfrischen Dynamik.
"A Dream Of Lasting Peace" ist ein Album zum Hören, zum Fühlen, zum Träumen, zum Nachdenken…
Die erste Single ´Tales Of Independence´ erscheint am 9. März 2017.

1. Secrets
2. Tales of Independence
3. Sundown

FERNDAL: Cover vom Album "Ferndal" . Mit dem Song „In die Freiheit“ hat die Band FERNDAL zum ersten Mal auch das Cover zum selbstbetitelten Album präsentiert. Das Artwork wurde von dem spanischen Künstler Norax geschaffen, der als Sänger der Black Metal Band LUX DIVINA bekannt ist. Norax hatte zuvor schon das Logo der Band FERNDAL gezeichnet, das allerdings nicht auf dem Cover der Digisleeve-Veröffentlichung des Albums zu sehen sein wird. Das CD-Cover zeigt allein das eindrucksvolle Bild einer kargen Landschaft, in der ein einzelner Mensch als Schatten vor einer als Auge stilisierten Sonne zu sehen ist. Das Motiv greift Themen aus den Songtexten auf und versinnbildlicht die Konzeption des Albums. Das motivische Konzept soll auf der Gestaltung der Rückseite fortgeführt werden, die vom selben Künstler stammt.
Das Album „Ferndal“ erscheint am 21.4.2017 auf CD im Digisleeve-Format; produziert vom deutschen Label Einheit Produktionen und am 26.5.2017 auf Vinyl in Zusammenarbeit mit Black Megalith.
Konzerte 2017:
25.2. Erfurt, From Hell (Fjoergyn Album Release Show)
11.3. Bad Oeynhausen, Druckerei

Genre:  Black Metal
Country:  Belgium
Running Time:  47 min
Line-up: 
NORGAATH: VOCALS,GUITARS,BASS,KEYS
MENTHOR: DRUMS (SESSION)
COLDBORN is the brainchild and soloproject of Norgaath (also active in NIGHTBRINGER, GRIMFAUG & ONIRIK and ex-Corpus Christii, Gotmoor & Paragon Impure).
Turn to the black caves in the wake of the void, praise the absence of luminescence as the whole's common grounds, collect the agony and aspire to succumb. Delve in the extreme and practice the slow descent. Linger on the edge of the bottomless pit until the time comes and these musical vibrations mantle the fall and beckon!
5 hymns of atmospheric Black Metal spanning 47 minutes to fulfill a section of your journey to the Abyss. Ghastly and diverse vocals in perfect rivalry with a body rich in trance-like guitar riffs that reek of dedication to the Blackness. This is no ordinary source and these are no ordinary hymns. This is the death of the man and the birth of the ghoul.
"He who gathers the hint of awareness knows no path other than the void"

ALFAHANNE SIGNS BOOKING DEAL WITH PITCH & SMITH
ALFAHANNE, who recently inked a deal with Indie Recordings for the release of their third full-length album "Det Nya Svarta",  set to hit the streets on the 7th April, have signed a booking deal with the international booking agency Pitch & Smith.  With offices in the UK and Sweden,  Pitch & Smith, who represent artists from across the globe throughout Europe, the UK, Asia and Australasia, is one more step forward for the dynamic foursome who aim to bring back a sense of danger to Rock n Roll with their self-styled brand of "Alfapokalyptic Rock".
Commenting on the new collaboration ALFAHANNE had this to say: "Despite the fact that we cut our teeth in bands like VINTERLAND and MAZE OF TORMENT, which are essentially what you would class as bands on the "extreme" end of the musical spectrum, ALFAHANNE has proved to be a totally different beast.  When we started out, our  audience was, not unexpectedly,  drawn mainly from the Black Metal scene, but the more we became known, and especially the more we played live, it became obvious that ALFAHANNE's appeal was much wider and we found that we were attracting all kinds of fans.
"And  that is absolutely what we wanted.  We didn't want people to listen to us because we were this kind of band or that kind of band, but because we were ALFAHANNE and because we had something that struck a chord with their individual musical tastes.  That's why we are so excited to be working with Pitch & Smith and why we think they are the natural choice for us.  Not only were the guys we will be working with born and raised in the same town as us, which means that they understand what we come from and where we want to head, but, more importantly, the nature of their agency means  we are not going to be tagged as just another "metal" band -  they are going to help us bring our music to a much wider audience.  And what band doesn't want that?"
The band's  lineup of Pehr Skjoldhammer on Vocals and Guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on Guitars, Niklas Åström on Drums and Jimmy Wiberg on Bass,  have a good decade of experience under their belts, and it's an experience that enables ALFAHANNE  to produce the kinds of albums and stage performances that have garnered them  a faithful, and ever-increasing fan base, as well as a plethora of well-known artists making guest appearances on their albums or live on stage . 
ALFAHANNE's new album "Det Nya Svarta"  was recorded at the Dödskult studio by Alfahanne's Pehr Skjoldhammer and mixed and mastered by Stamos Koliousis.   Following the  ALFAHANNE tradition of including some high profile guests on their releases  "Det Nya Svarta" includes performances from KAMPFAR's Dolk, David Lindh from YVONNE AND BRODER DANIEL,  Sanrabb from GEHENNA and Nadine Skjoldhammer.  Tracklisting for "Det Nya Svarta" is as follows:
1. Satans verser (with Dolk from KAMPFAR)
2. Stigmata
3. Avgrundsgravitation (with David Lindh from YVONNE & BRODER DANIEL)
4. Klubb 27
5. Mitt mörker är mörkare än ditt (with Nadine Skjoldhammer)
6. Dödsmaskin (with Sanrabb from GEHENNA)
7. Även hund har sin dag
8. Svarta får
9. Det nya svarta
A track from ALFAHANNE's latest album "Det Nya Svarta" was recently previewed and can be heard at  https://youtu.be/uKg2mBrn-T0
"Det Nya Svarta" is now available to pre-order in CD and Vinyl formats from

OFFRET s/t LP (Russia)
GENRE: Atmospheric Metal
FFO: Neurosis, Black Heart Rebellion, Amenra, Ulver, Sólstafir...
Without crossing too far over specific genre borders, the debut EP from Russian one-man act OFFRET allows a little more variety and casts author Andrey Prokofiev as someone of a dark metal modernist.
His offering is based on acoustic guitar and trombones framework distorted by Sunn Model T amp bass, and presents an unparalleled sense of wonder within each song.
Perhaps Andrey should have added a bit more colour to the canvas, but this work was not crafted to entertain the kids.
Plug in your headphones, launch the player and see the lyrics below to see why.

SCHWARZDORN PRODUCTION News :  Greetings from Finland, I would like to present VUOLLA:  https://youtu.be/oszNKgTXTq4    Debut album "BLOOD. STONE. SUN. DOWN." was released on 3.6.2016 via Schwarzdorn Production (Germany).
Our album was promoted worldwide by SureShotWorx. After doing some live shows last year, we are excited and hungry for the chance to do more live events this year.
Inspired by the dark winters of the north, VUOLLA hail from the depths of human existence. They are based in the city of Jyväskylä, Finland, which has produced other Doom-Meta bands like SWALLOW THE SUN.
In VUOLLA, melancholic Post-Rock meets the great elements of Doom and Death-Metal. The charismatic mix of depressive parts with growls and clean vocals and doomy, brilliantly rendered guitar work reminds the listener of the early works of ANATHEMA. The dense atmosphere of the VUOLLA takes the listener on a journey deep into the mist inside - guided by a flickering flame and a distant word of hope... 
Absolutely essential for fans of THROES OF DAWN, SHAPE OF DESPAIR and KATATONIA. In 2015 VUOLLA signed a record contract with SCHWARZDORN PRODUCTION.
Vuolla did their first tour in Eastern Europe in 2014. Seven shows in four countries: Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria. Band has also played in Estonia many times including Metalport Open Air 2016 in Tallinn.

CRAVEN IDOL has tapped No Clean Singing for the exclusive premiere of "A Ripping Strike," the first track to be released off the band's forthcoming new album, THE SHACKLES OF MAMMON
"A Ripping Strike" is exactly what fans of London's premium old-school extreme metal force - ruthless blackened thrash. The band comments on the song:
"'A Ripping Strike' summons the spirits of Poison (Ger), Sodom, and Bathory, with a dose of Gospel Of The Horns thrown in. It's a forlorn tale of revenge, of a last stand, and of darkest defeat. Being the first track we wrote, it is the founding pillar on which the sonic matter on our second album, The Shackles Of Mammon was wrought. A fierce attack of uncompromising old school extreme metal. The track features ferocious debut performances from two new band members, Heretic Blades (drums) and Obscenitor (guitar, also of Crom Dubh)."
Stream "A Ripping Strike"  here .
The Shackles of Mammon will be released April 14 on LP, CD, and MC via Dark Descent Records. 
Pre-order the album now at  darkdescentrecords.bandcamp.com.
Vrath - Vocals, Guitars
Obscenitor - Guitar
Suspiral - Bass

HATE UNBOUND – “PLAGUE “
Format: CD/Digital
Genre: Death/Thrash Metal
Detroit, Michigan's HATE UNBOUND are the sonic equivalent of a booze fueled fist fight among friends. All driven by raw talent, ambition, honesty and a passion for heavy metal.  This passion has allowed them to share the stage with national and international acts such as Origin, Dying Fetus, Belphegor, Cephalic Carnage, Misery Index, Hate Eternal, Battlecross, Exmortus, Beyond Creation,  Rivers of Nihil, Warbringer, Havok,  Abigail Williams, along with a regional tour with L.A. metal veteran's Heretic.
By focusing their dedication with a do-it-yourself work ethic and their own sound, singer Art Giammarra, guitarist Daryl Mitchell,   guitarist William Cundiff, bassist Sean Demura, and drummer Franklin “Foot” Hannah continue to define the heavy landscape of today’s metal music scene. Their work consists of heavy songs that make you want to bang your head. — Paying tribute to a range of influences from Death to Lamb of God.  Oh the heavy hooks… 
Somewhere in the dark depths of death and thrash metal, lies the inspiration for Hate Unbound's new album Plague. Those influences remained constant throughout Hate Unbound's writing and arranging process which is a collaborative effort between all members of the band.  
Plague was recorded, mixed and mastered during the spring and summer of 2016 at Elaire Studios which is located in the shadow of the decaying city of Detroit, Michigan. The process was delayed so Hate Unbound could perform at the New Jersey Metal Fest and Full Terror Assault 2 Open Air festivals in the summer of 2016.
Hate Unbound's Plague is a tribute to, as well as a continuation of, all things heavy. And a salute to all headbangers everywhere.
Plague is released February 17th 2017 via Inverse Records
Hate Unbound is:
Art Giammara - vocals
Daryl Mitchell - guitar
William Cundiff - guitar 
Sean Demura - bass
Franklin "Foot" Hannah - drums

Brian Kingsland, guitarist for South Carolina Progressive Black Metallers ENTHEAN, has joined the mighty NILE as second guitarist/vocalist. Already in ascendance after ENTHEAN's 2016 debut album PRIESTS OF ANNIHILATION, the Kingsland announcement is hardly surprising considering the band's immense talent pool.
The gears of the ENTHEAN machine continue to turn, as evidenced in the following update from the band:
"Enthean will be coming out with our follow-up to 2016's 'Priests of Annihilation' this year. In the meantime, our drummer, Josh Ward, is touching up the new Rapheumets Well album, while Brian is steady with Nile. We wish nothing but the best to all of our brothers in Nile and continued support for Dallas Toler-Wade and Narcotic Wasteland!"
ENTHEAN released debut album Priests of Annihilation last year. Order the album at:  https://enthean.bandcamp.com/album/priests-of-annihilation
ENTHEAN is an extreme metal band based out of South Carolina, formed in 2012 with the intentions of creating their own brand of metal. ENTHEAN seamlessly merges elements of Technical death, symphonic black, progressive, thrash, shred and classical music. Their sound is driven by precise counterpoint based riffs, furious drumming and a symphonic backdrop. Resulting in a whirlwind of bludgeoning sound, virtuoso technique and masterful composition. ENTHEAN's lyrical inspiration comes from life blended with mythology.

Genre:  Death Metal
Line-up: 
Ryan Whittaker - Guitars
Robert Harris - Drums
Sam Read - Vocals
Ben Read - Bass
Foetal Juice have been on the Extreme Metal Underground circuit for well over ten years now, a band with a passion for the gory and perverted side of life, introducing black humour and pure horror with subject matter including strange sects of nuns who piss in the font and eat their own shit as a form of worship, creepy bar flies that wait till women leave then furiously sniff their seats to inhale the sweet pheromones and George CorpseGrinder Fishers neck exploding from playing too much WOW.
 They continue to consistently play various shows, building up a healthy following playing alongside many of the genres heavyweights, headlining their own shows, playing with local metal acts and appearing in some of the most prestigious extreme metal festivals in and around Europe.
 In Dec 2016 they released their debut album 'Masters of Absurdity" a violent none stop slab of nasty Death/Black/Grind gristle to get your teeth around and is available to stream, download and purchase physical copies though their band camp, bigcartel, soptify and various other outlets.

CEMETERY WINDS (Finland) - 'UNHOLY ASCENSIONS'
Genre :
 Blackened Death Metal
For fans of :
 SEPULCHRAL CURSE, DISSECTION, SACRAMENTUM, BOLZER, TRIBULATION, AMORPHIS, GOREPHILIA, KRYPTS
Finland has more to offer in the blackened death metal realm than SEPULCHRAL CURSE, whose vocalist is a part of this recording as well. When old school death metal brutality is combined with the atmospheric elements of black metal, the result is astounding, and it's no surprise that the band is signed to Transcending Obscurity Records for their upcoming album. This one, released by Temple of Darkness Records, exemplifies the aforementioned qualities and is a magnificent, epic album with deep, haunting melodies. It's like a cross between DISSECTION and very early AMORPHIS. The more you listen to this gem, the more you get enraptured. It has this inextricable grip on you if you're able to get under its tightly woven riff structure and follow the sinuous patterns. Here's death metal that's breaking the hackneyed mould and by borrowing elements from other atmospheric styles, doing something special with it. 
Track list: 
1. Dormant Darkness
2. Realm of the Open Tombs
3. Into the Breathless Slumber
4. When Death Descends
5. Burials After Midnight
6. The Storm of Impious Wrath
7. Unholy Ascensions
8. Outro

ABUSE Returns with  NOTHING IS SAFE Album out May 26 on Comatose Music 
Like a sucker punch to the gut, Abuse storms back onto the death metal landscape after a lengthy sixteen year hangover. They eagerly return to do what they undoubtedly do best, shred your face and put women in their place! 
This Canadian outfit recently enlisted the inhuman skills from US skin basher Lord Marco (Neurogenic & Six Feet Under) on drums. Together they have blended the rawest ingredients of death metal, with a hint of tasteless grind, for an unforgiving cocktail of immoral brutality. 
Nothing is Safe proves that Abuse is now poised to punish those who defy and make all submit to serve their depraved desires! Pounding bitches since 1999...

THE CHARM THE FURY veröffentlichen ersten Video-Trailer zu »THE SICK, DUMB & HAPPY«
Die aus Amsterdam, Holland stammende Metalband THE CHARM THE FURY haben den ersten Video-Trailer zu »The Sick, Dumb & Happy« veröffentlicht.
Schaut euch Trailer #1, in dem Sängerin Caroline Westendorp und Schlagzeuger Mathijs Tieken über die Formation der Band, den Namen und den Sound diskutieren, hier an:  https://youtu.be/lxk4oeS8F4s
»The Sick, Dumb & Happy« wird am 17. März via Nuclear Blast (weltweit) und Arising Empire (Europa) veröffentlicht.
Zum neuen Album und Cover-Artwork sagt die Band folgendes: "This record is a cross-section of the metal sound we hope will resurrect in the next ten years. A return to thrash roots, headbanging anthems, and tried and tested songwriting that made metal so great back in the 80s and 90s.
We found Robert Sammelin via an app, saw his work and immediately knew that this was our guy. He still hand draws his designs, creating some completely surreal comic-style images. While working with him we actually found out that he did key artwork for Battlefield 1, which is crazy. We gave him the rough idea for the spiral eyed skull, the color scheme and blood spatters was all his idea. We wanted something different and we feel he created a completely unique piece, better than anything we could come up with."
 Schaut euch den Teaser des kommenden Albums hier an:
 https://youtu.be/SMVrSvgM1rk
Vier Jahre sind seit der Veröffentlichung des ersten Albums vergangen und THE CHARM THE FURY befinden sich inzwischen auf einem höheren Level als jemals zuvor. Während sie auf Europas größten Festivals gespielt haben, begann die Band in eine neue Richtung zu gehen. Mit einer verblüffenden Ladung ultra modernem, aber absolut unverkannbarem Metal, definieren sich THE CHARM THE FURY gewandt und ehrlich als das, was sie wirklich sind. Sie haben ein wütendes Album aufgenommen, angetrieben von der gemeinsamen Abscheu gegenüber dem Zustand des Planeten im 21. Jahrhundert und unterstützt von grimmiger Intelligenz mit dem innigen Wunsch, die Menschen endlich aus ihrer Smartphone-Stumpfheit aufzuwecken.
Schon bald werden wir euch mit weiteren Neuigkeiten zur Band und ihrem neuen Album versorgen. THE CHARM THE FURY sind bewaffnet, bereit und lechzen nach dem nächsten großen Schlag. Wenn in 2017 alles explodiert, wäre es besser auf diese zähen Krachmacher zu setzen, die ihren rechtmäßigen Platz inmitten der Metal-Elite einfordern. Sie haben Songs, die Bestimmung und das Charisma um es zu schaffen. Wer gegen sie wettet, tut dies auf eigene Gefahr!

Für den Mix und das Mastering ist - wie schon bei den KLABAUTAMANN-Alben "Our Journey Through The Woods" und "The Old Chamber" - ARMIN RAVE (u.a. Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult, Grabnebelfürsten, Pavor) verantwortlich. Das Cover Artwork stammt von COSTIN CHIOREANU, bekannt von seinen Arbeiten für Opeth, Triptykon, Enslaved, At The Gates u.v.m.

Yeah! Freut Euch auf einen neuen Hammer aus dem Hause BDHW Rec.!
Aus Großbritanien kommt ein kompletter Abriss, der in Sachen metallischer Hardcore null Komma null Gefangene macht.
MALEVOLENCE fahren ein bösartiges Brett, brillieren in diversen Geschwindigkeitsstufen von straightem Pit-Geballer bis hin zu einer derben Walze, die Crowbar stolz machen würde, sind jedoch durchgehend heavy as fuck.
Schon das Debüt "Reign Of Suffering" wurde von einigen Medien als moderner Klassiker abgefeiert und knackte zu Hause sogar BBCs Radio 1.
"Self Supremacy" ist nun der nächste Schritt.
Der Sheffield-Fünfer steht nach wie vor für intelligente Gitarrenarbeit, derbste Mosh-Sparts und leidenschaftlich-wütenden Gesang.

Genre - Death Metal/Crust
For fans of - Skitsystem, Nihlist, Dismember, Entombed, Carnage, Nasum, Extreme Noise Terror, Napalm Death
From Jonny Pettersson of WOMBBATH comes HENRY KANE, a ferocious slab of crusty Swedish death metal like no other. Rarely before has death metal been so vigorously channelled via the template of crustcore, leaving it infected with rabid fervour few can muster up the courage to withstand. This not only blends genres but lends to it an atmospheric quality fostered by an emotional undercurrent. Amidst slabs of cascading concrete, you have faint but poignant melodies making an appearance, changing the landscape of this expression. Nostalgic yet amplified to modern day aggression, HENRY KANE is the future of Swedish death metal and crust, a marriage made in a perfect post-apocalyptic world. 
Track list: 
1. En själ till salu 
2. Svarta tankar 
3. Skuld och begär 
4. En grav av ångest 
5. Är din botten nådd 
6. Dragen i skiten 
7. En längtan 
8. Den förstörda människans rike 
9. Flaskan var din sista vän 
10. Bön för bön 
11. Kära bror
12. Bara hat 
13. Lögnens svarta ögon 
14. Det var inte ditt fel 
15. Vinst eller fölust

INSANITY CULT - "OF DESPAIR AND SELF-DESTRUCTION"
Genre:  Black Metal
Country:  Greece
Running Time:  55 min
Line-up: 
Έκ πτωτος (Lead Guitar)
Sacrilegious (Vocals)
Buer (Bass)
Vohamon (Rhythm Guitar)
Beleth (Drums, Programmation)
Insanity Cult were created back in 2011 by Έκ πτωτος (Lead Guitar) and Sacrilegious (Vocals) as a means of deeper inner expression and exploration. In 2012, Beleth (Drums) and Buer (Bass) joined the line up, while Vohamon (Rhythm Guitar) joined a year later in 2013. Throughout the years the band experimented intensly with their sound and ripened both musically and ideologically, thus new elements were added while some others were removed. The general sound however, was always based around melodies and feelings of melancholy, nihilism, hatred and despair. The first EP "Insanity Be My Kvlt", which was a raw rehearsal recording, was released in January of 2014, followed by the release of the debut full-length album "As My End Unfolds..." in April of 2015. Now, the band's second opus is to be released in 11th february of 2017.

ALFAHANNE  DEBUTS TRACK FROM UPCOMING ALBUM :
With their third full-length album "DET NYA SVARTA" set for release on the 7th April on Indie Recordings,  Sweden's ALFAHANNE have revealed a track from the album.  Titled "Stigmata", the band explained  that the track "is about our home town. How you are born full of hope for the future, but the raw climate destroys you and the town drags you down".
"Stigmata" can be heard on YouTube at
 https://youtu.be/uKg2mBrn-T0
Recorded at the Dödskult studio by Alfahanne's Pehr Skjoldhammer and Mixed and mastered by Stamos Koliousis, "Det Nya Svarta" follows the ALFAHANNE tradition of including some high profile artists making guest appearances.  Artists which in the past have included  TAAKE’s Hoest, SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth, HELHEIM’s V’gandr,  KVELERTAK frontman Erlend Hjelvik, Spellgoth from HORNA and TURMION KÄTILÖT, and Nattfursth from SORHIN, not just on their first two albums, but also live on stage
Guests making an appearance on "Det Nya Svarta" include KAMPFAR's Dolk, David Lindh from YVONNE AND BRODER DANIEL,  Sanrabb from GEHENNA and Nadine Skjoldhammer.  Tracklisting for "Det Nya Svarta" is as follows:
1. Satans verser (with Dolk from KAMPFAR)
2. Stigmata
3. Avgrundsgravitation (with David Lindh from YVONNE & BRODER DANIEL)
4. Klubb 27
5. Mitt mörker är mörkare än ditt (with Nadine Skjoldhammer)
6. Dödsmaskin (with Sanrabb from GEHENNA)
7. Även hund har sin dag
8. Svarta får
9. Det nya svarta
Formed in Eskilstuna in 2010,  the self-styled “Alfapokalyptic Rockers” burst onto the scene with energy, exuberance , and an impressive swagger, which, coupled with a fan-friendly attitude quickly earned them respect,  and an ever-increasing, and dedicated, following.  ALFAHANNE's debut full-length album “Alfapokalyps” appeared on Dark Essence Records in 2014 and  was followed by "Blod Eld Alfa" in 2015. 
The band's lineup of Pehr Skjoldhammer on Vocals and Guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on Guitars, Niklas Åström on Drums and Jimmy Wiberg on Bass,  have a couple of decades of experience under their belts in bands like VINTERLAND and early MAZE OF TORMENT.  Together they have created a sound that mixes Black Metal with Classic Rock and Punk, and good old Rock n Roll that is unmistakably ALFAHANNE's.
Frontman Skjoldhammer recently explained that with their third full-length album ALFAHANNE are continuing  to explore the dark side of mankind: "Alfahanne's lyrics are very personal and have many layers of dirt. Once you dig deeper into them you find many truths as I see them.  Alfahanne will never lean to the left or to the right or write about political issues. The only political issue that is close to our hearts is equal rights but the flipside of that same coin is that we think everyone is equally.... Equally useless." 
"Det Nya Svarta" is now available to pre-order in CD and Vinyl formats from
 http://shop.indierecordings.no/artist/16189--alfahanne  and in Digital format from https://itunes.apple.com/no/album/det-nya-svarta/id1202165056

Old Temple presents :PANDEMONIUM  _-"NIHILIST"
Finally after the release of "Misanthropy" 5 years ago legendary horde Pandemonium is back with the long-awaited new released album "Nihilist". The material contains 9 blasphemous psalms, which are a continuation of previous albums and are referring to the ambience known from the iconic "Devilri". The music was recorded following the old methodology of achieving a raw, saturated sound with minimum use of digital engineering to the sound of instruments. All that was done in order to bring out the spirit of the early days of metal and summon the maximum amount of human's diabolical nature. Full length CD consists of 46 minutes of characteristic oldschool, underground, Pandemonium styled death/black metal soaked with disquieting influence of misanthropy, death, darkness, insanity and nihilism. The album was recorded in Mariusz Konieczny Heavy Gear Studio (Hellspawn). The recording session was attended by: Paul (vocals), Mark (vocals, guitar), Michael (bass), Mayor (guitar), Desecrate (drums), and Special Guests: Szymon (Tenebris) - vocals, Gary (Hellspawn) - guitar solos. Album released in a traditional CD case on a golden CD. All copies hand numbered.

3. Hard to Believe Chris Vrenna - Extended Version)

The two-CD set will also include additional remixes exclusive to the deluxe CD package. This package will include download cards for three previously unreleased uncensored videos. This deluxe version will also be limited to 500, after which the CD will be available in a less elaborate standard format. The CD version will also be available digitally. 
The mastermind comments: “The LP has completely different art from the CD. I always liked the idea of creating variations of the same thing. We were able to license a couple of awesome Hieronymus Bosch paintings for that one. The CD is a homage to an age of film long gone by. One of my personal favorites. If you do some research, I am sure you will figure it out.”
 Ahead of the release of the ‘The Great Corrupter’ remix album in April, Mortiis will embark on a UK co-headline run this March with PIG, aka industrial pioneer Raymond Watts.
The band recently revealed a first taster from the forthcoming album in form of a double single which contains a reworked version of ‘Doppelganger’ by Die Krupps and a Leæther Strip remix of ‘The Shining Lamp Of God’.

Genre - Black/Thrash Metal
For fans of - Sarcofago, Desaster, Venom, Hellhammer, Slayer, Slaughter, Exordium Mors, Lustravi
Morbid Skull Records presents the latest release of the black/thrash metal sensation LUCIFERA from Colombia. With a sound firmly rooted in the old school style, they whip up a storm and deliver a dozen extremely potent and acerbic tracks. Alejandra Blasfemia's vocals are veritably hateful and vile, and coupled with the fact that they're delivered in a native language exacerbates things greatly. Given the nature and tone of the primitive music, they go very well with it and sound like fierce incantations belonging to an ancient black art ritual. 'Preludio Del Mal' is scathing yet laden with catchy riffing and exudes a fantastic vibe throughout. LUCIFERA are a revelation indeed and anyone who can appreciate vicious old school black/thrash metal will find a new favourite in this one. 
Track list: 
1. Esclavos de Dios
2. Los Demonios de Loudun
3. Tiempos Siniestros
4. Alianzas de Acero y Metal

ANTROPOFAGUS returns on May 12, 2017 with an album of uncompromising godless ferocity! Five years after their highly praised Architecture of Lust release, this Italian death metal beast strikes again with Comatose Music release Methods of Resurrection Through Evisceration (M.O.R.T.E.), a journey into life, death, resurrection and the descent into the darkest depths of self.  
This is ANTROPOFAGUS' heaviest and most wicked effort to date, blending old school US death metal influences with their trademark style of brutality. M.O.R.T.E. is a deluge of punishing frantic riffs, monstrous vocals and a relentless drums performance by Davide 'BrutalDave' Billia (BEHEADED, HOUR OF PENANCE). Make no mistake; there is no escape. ANTROPOFAGUS is coming to consume your flesh and invade your soul! 
Also look out for the officially licensed vinyl edition from Everlasting Spew Records. 
Guitarist Francesco and Vocalist Tya had this to say about the forthcoming Comatose Music release:
Francesco: "We decided to go with a warmer and fatter tone this time. The songs are more straight forward and in your face than the songs on 'Architecture of Lust', and certainly more groovy. I'd say this is the most old school and evil Antropofagus album to date. Dave and I worked hard to make sure this album would have a deeper sanguineous sound, and I also went from a six string to a seven string guitar for this recording. I'd say Morbid Angel and Hate Eternal have been the strongest influences while writing this album, but the Antropofagus trademark is definitely there, so expect pure brutality! Probably our most balanced and mature album so far."
Tya: "This is definitely the Antropofagus album which we worked the most on, the one that required the highest tribute from us. As on a conceptual level, it's drenched of my own blood. M.O.R.T.E. is a continual succession of thoughts, shadows and nightmares shaped into music, extreme and hate-filled against all which is dogmatic to humanity's eyes. A process of rebirth through the evisceration of my own self."
RIYL: HOUR OF PENANCE, NILE, IMMOLATION, BEHEADED
Track Listing:
1. Whirlwind of Initiation
2. Spawn of Chaos
3. Chants for Abyzou
4. Praise to a Hecatomb
5. Methods of Resurrection Through Evisceration
6. Omnipotent Annihilation
7. The Abyss (Chapter One)
8. Quintessence of Suffering
9. Deception of the Blood
10. Living in Fear (Malevolent Creation cover)

Hello everyone, MONOLITHE & Les Acteurs de l'ombre productions have secured a partnership to launch the band's upcoming seventh full length album. Label and band have agreed on a early 2018 release.
For many years, MONOLITHE and Les Acteurs de l'ombre Productions have been very active and respected entities in the metal community. This was only a matter of time before both forces joined the same team.
MONOLITHE had scheduled to record this new album on February 2017. 
MONOLITHE's music can be qualified as Dark Doom Metal : a Doom/Death basis on which we add other influences, from Extreme Metal to Progressive, passing through the adventurism and psychedelia of the 70's.
The music is mostly loud and powerful, rich in riffs and atmosphere, very immersive and spatial. It evolves with each albums, MONOLITHE does not want to stagnate, neither to stick to the over-exploited codes of the gender.
The band, which exist since 15 ans, released 6 albums, 2 EPs and a Best-Of.
In 2016, MONOLITHE has decided to play live for the first time in its history. That's how the band played a handful of shows over Europe (MetalDays, Dutch Doom Days, Berlin Swamp Fest ).
In 2017, MONOLITHE will hit the stage of Hellfest Open Air Festival

Finnish death metal force GOREPHILIA and Metal Injection have locked horns for the exclusive premiere of "Return to Dark Space," the second track released off the band's forthcoming SEVERED MONOLITH
In the words of Metal Injection scribe Cody Davis, the song "seems to plant itself within the body's core and rip it apart from the inside." The subtle Xenomorph reference is appropriate considering that, in the "Return to Dark Space," no one can hear you screan.
Stream the track  HERE
GOREPHILIA will release Severed Monolith on March 3. The album will be on on CD and digital formats via Dark Descent Records, with vinyl treatment through Me Saco Un Ojo.

NIGHON – “THE SOMME”
Format: CD/Digital
Genre: Symphonic Shock metal
Nighon was formed in 2008, in Pietarsaari, Finland. The band portrays unglorified stories from war and other crimes. The band's music is greatly inspired by cinematic music and extreme forms of metal. The result is a unique and aggressive sound, blending darkness with light. Nighon released its first record 'Cor Oblivionis' in 2014 on Univocal Records and their first music video 'Ex Tenebris Lux' the same year.
The band has gigged with bands like MyGrain, Magenta Harvest, Finntroll, Kill The Kong and Arkentype. Nighon are also hosting their own podcast called “Nighon Propaganda-cast”. The idea is to provide uncensored content and a free flow of information. 
 Nighon’s second album 'The Somme' was recorded in the spring and summer of 2016. The drums were recorded at Soundspiral Audio, with Juho Räihä. The rest was recorded at Nighon's home studio. Mathias Lillmåns (Finntroll, Magenta Harvest, Chthonian, etc.) has co-produced the album with Nighon. He is also featured on the song “I Fear For Tomorrow”. The album was mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd at Studio Fredman, Gothenburg Sweden.
The album is a concept album with stories from World War I, World War II and the similarities between those and the crises we see today in our world. The sound is much more extreme than previous Nighon compositions, widening the contrasts even more than before. The album is supposed to be heard in it’s entirety non-stop. The single “The Greatest of Catastrophes” is a blend of the outbreak of World War I and the Ukraine crisis. The video was filmed during the winter 2016 by Kasper Dalkarl, David Viklund and Stephanie Blomqvist.
The Somme is released May 5th 2017 by Inverse Records. 
The brand new music video "The Greatest Of Catastrophes" is available here:

HYPNOS -  “THE WHITECROW”
Death Metal commando HYPNOS was founded in the autumn of 1999 from the remnants of the famous Czech band KRABATHOR (est. 1984). The band became the country's leading Death Metal band after four albums and several EPs. HYPNOS have played more than 300 shows all over Europe, among them the WFF and the Brutal Assault also touring alongside BEHEMOTH, MORBID ANGEL, ENSLAVED, DYING FETUS and THE CROWN
“The Whitecrow“ was recorded by Børge FINSTAD (MAYHEM, IHSAHN, ARCTURUS) again. Christopher (Krabathor), Paul Speckmann (Master), V. Santura (Dark Fortress, Triptykon), Martin Missy (Protector) contributed to the album as guests. Musicologists & press are enthusiastic. The album will be available March 24th 2017 as a Digi-CD+DVD (incl. 3 video clips and a 70 minutes live show) limited to 1.000 copies as well as a standard jewel case CD with a great 28-page booklet, as vinyl & digital.
Few press and musician´s quotes:
“Beprepared for The Dark Side of HYPNOS - the one you have not got a chance to explore yet.“ (Ashok) Cradle Of Filth
“TheWhitecrow rises upon the grounds of classic metal but rumbles with an ominous presence of rage and fury that captured me. The title track is truly a brilliant song that eventually will hunt you down. Check it out!” (Øystein Brun) Borknagar
“Hypnosrejuvenated their sound – the result sounds darker, more morbid and intense than ever before, still not losing any class, on the contrary. "The Whitecrow" is a strong record with a long shelf-life.” (Frank Albrecht) Deaf Forever

 Formed in 2006 by Morten Shax and the late Trondr Nefas (URGEHAL, BEASTCRAFT, VULTURE LORD), ENDEZMMA  merges the icy aggression of Old School Black Metal with a distinctive sound all of its own, to create what the band describe as "Nekro Requiems".   Aside from Shax on vocals, today's lineup includes Malphas (BEASTCRAFT,CARPATHIAN FOREST,SVARTTJERN)on  Lead Guitar,  Nihil on Rythm Guitar, Skriu (ex live BLOOD RED THRONE) on Drums and  Aske (BYRDI) on Bass.   
ENDEZZMA's debut full-length album "Erotikk Nekrosis" was released in 2012, the year that also marked the death of Trondr Nefas, so it is fitting that the new EP serves as a tribute to the now legendary musician ahead of what will be the band's sophomore full-length "The Arcane Abyss", which will hit the streets at the end of March on Pulverised Records.

DEMONIC RESURRECTION (India) - 'DASHAVATAR'
Genre - Epic Black/Death Metal
For fans of - RUDRA, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, DIMMU BORGIR, BEHEMOTH, EMPEROR, SAOR, HEATHEN BEAST
One of India's longest running bands, DEMONIC RESURRECTION, are back with their fifth full length album and it's a unique take on the avatars of Lord Vishnu according to Indian mythology. Each song is dedicated to a different avatar and the artwork and lyrics are indicative of the same. 'Dashavatar' follows the band's trademark epic black/death metal style that the band have cemented over the decades. The fans won't be disappointed and at the same time this is an ambitious leap forward. Tasteful solos accentuate the soaring riffs, all impeccably structured to bring to life stories from ancient Hindu mythology. Suitably atmospheric and tempered to perfection, this album holds its own in an era of ever-increasing individuality.

1. Matsya - The Fish
2. Kurma - The Tortoise

Greek Epic/Doom Metal act REFLECTION return after 8 years! Band's 4th album features a guest appearance by Mats Leven
Pitch Black Records is thrilled to announce its 50th album release with the signing of legendary Greek Epic/Doom Metal act REFLECTION!
REFLECTION, the driving force of Hellenic Epic/Doom Metal, will be celebrating their 25th anniversary next year and they are now back, with their fourth album, “BLEED BABYLON BLEED”! It’s been eight years since the band’s last offering, making this an eagerly awaited release; and with a new vocalist in their ranks this becomes an even more anticipated release!
As this is quite a special release, label founder, Phivos Papadopoulos, felt the need to briefly comment: 
“Our 50th release just had to be special. And this is as special as it could get, for a number of reasons! I remember discovering REFLECTION in the early ‘90s and receiving their demo tape after writing to them and how I was blown away by their music. Even more importantly though, since the day we first made contact, a truly unique bond has been formed between myself and the band’s founder and guitarist, Stathis Pavlantis.
A bond that has certainly stood the test of time and has grown more and more throughout the years; we are not just friends, we are family now and the emotions associated with releasing this on my own record label, twenty-something years after we first “met”, cannot easily be put into words. I agreed to sign REFLECTION without even listening to their new album (which I haven’t regretted one tiny bit of course)! Here’s another fine example of that something that makes metal so magical and special I guess!”
With nine track of pure solid epic doom heavy metal, “Bleed Babylon Bleed” has all the elements that have defined REFLECTION’s superb musicianship throughout the years. The band has matured since a long time ago, yet their sound is even more refined now and full-bodied, still incorporating their signature fast to mid and low tempo song ranges. “Bleed Babylon Bleed” is just oozing with atmosphere, epic melodies and powerful emotions as it deals mainly with the Pontic Genocide (as well as genocides in general). The final track marks the album’s culmination as it features a Pontian lyra (masterfully played by Pavlantis) that takes a lead role, beautifully mixed with the rest of the instruments, for an utterly bone-chilling effect.
Special mention should be made to the guest appearance of Mats Leven of CANDLEMASS. Besides his majestic input on this album, this is also of particular importance since CANDLEMASS have always been a primary influence for REFLECTION. Other noteable guest appearances include Albert Bell (FORSAKEN) and Kostas Tokas (RELOAD).
“Bleed Babylon Bleed”, is out on April 7th worldwide on CD and Digital. Pre-orders are up at
 http://store.pitchblackrecords.com  and  http://pitchblackrecords.bandcamp.com. A track is now available for streaming and free download at www.pitchblackrecords.com.

BLACK METALLERS LUCIFER'S CHILD POST NEW VIDEO
Fans and festival goers who were hoping to see LUCIFER's CHILD in Bergen at the cancelled Blastfest can at least get a taste of what they are missing with the new video for the track "Hors de Combat",  from the band's debut full-length album "The Wiccan", which was released on Dark Essence Records in the autumn of 2015. 
Filmed live in the studio, and a perfect illustration of the kind of powerful performance with which  LUCIFER's CHILD have been thrilling fans on stage, "Hors de Combat" can be seen on YouTube at
https://youtu.be/e9aIqlZ3jZU
Formed by  George Emmanuel (ROTTING CHRIST, ex-CHAOSTAR) and Stathis Ridis (NIGHTFALL), LUCIFER's CHILD's sound is based on classic Greek Black Metal.  The lineup of Emmanuel (guitars) and Stathis (bass), together with Marios Dupont on vocals and Nick Vell on drums, creates a sound that ranges from the heavier end of the musical spectrum to the mid-paced.   
It is a sound with a purpose.  One that serves as an introduction to the atmosphere surrounding the act of "Summoning".   LUCIFER's CHILD seeks to create a unity between the spiritual ideas expressed within each song and the music itself.   The band's music does  not just give an insight into how electrifying Black Metal can sound when played well, it also gives the listener a sense of spiritualistic energy.
More information about LUCIFER'S CHILD can be found on the band's website at  www.luciferschild.net   or on their Facebook page at  www.facebook.com/luciferschildmusic

BLACK METALLERS DOEDSVANGR REVEAL VIDEO OF TRACK FROM UPCOMING ALBUM
With the 27th March set for the release of "Satan Ov Suns" on Immortal Frost Productions,  Black Metallers DOEDSVANGR  have today posted a video for a track from the album.  Created by Moornebheym, the video, for the track "Black Dawn",  can be seen on YouTube at  https://youtu.be/zItJ2GLLPGM
Whilst DOEDSVNGR is a relatively new band, there is no denying the fact that the Norwegian/Finnish lineup comprising Shatraug (HORNA, SARGEIST, BEHEXEN and NIGHTBRINGER),   Anti-Christian (TSJUDER,  BEATEN TO DEATH) and founder and frontman Doedsadmiral (NORDJEVEL, SVARTELDER, ENEPSIGOS) contains some of the most experienced and respected musicians on the Black Metal scene. 
Parlaying this experience into their debut album, the trio have created eleven tracks that reek of the traditional darkness and menace one would expect from Black Metal, but which steer well clear anything even remotely formulaic.  Recorded at Velvet Recording in Spydeberg with Christer Krohg, and with drums recorded at the  Klang Studios in Oslo with Bjarne Stensli, "Satan Ov Suns" is an uncompromising work  that offers extreme variations, and, according to the band, "a lot of groove".
With artwork by Khaos Diktator Design, tracklisting for "Satan Ov Suns" is as follows:
1. Our Lord Cometh!
2. Rituals
3. Doedsvangr
4. Black Dawn
5. Northern Watchtowers
6. Diaboli
7. Gnashing Of Teeth
8. Breath Of Lucifer
9. Throne Of Black Illumination
10. Blood Whores
11. Black Sun Nimbus
In a recent comment  DOEDSVANGR the band's  prolific frontman "Doedsadmiral" had this to say about the formation of the band, and its direction: "All my other bands each have a different sound  and musical ethos one from the other, and DOEDSVANGR is one that comes from a much darker direction.  DOEDSVANGR, like the other projects in which I'm involved, does not come from me alone, but is the result of two great musicians coming onboard so that together we can create music the way we all want it to sound, and perform it in a way that we all want to hear it.  Will DOEDSVSANGR perform live one day?  That remains to be seen, let's just see where the album takes us first".
"Satan Ov Suns" will be available in CD, Gatefold Double Vinyl and Digital formats and is available to pre-order in CD and Vinyl formats from
http://shop.immortalfrostproductions.com/?s=doedsvangr&post_type=product  and in Digital format from  http://digital.immortalfrostproductions.com/album/satan-ov-suns .

ESHTADUR REVEAL "CORNERED AT THE EARTH"
Colombian melodic death metal powerhouse ESHTADUR have revealed their new single "Cornered at the Earth"! The track, which is taken from their upcoming album Mother Gray is highly recommended for fans of early Soilwork and At the Gates.

Since then they have released a pair of EP's and a potent duo of albums. Their rich touring history includes performances across Colombia, Peru and Mexico. They have been distributed across the world and even headlined a stage at Rock Al Parque in 2016.

TAAKE ANNOUNCES UK DATES WITH FEN AND DE PROFUNDIS
With their appearance in London at the end of last year having sold out almost immediately, Norwegian Black Metallers TAAKE have announced that they will return to the UK to play the following four dates in April alongside UK favourites FEN and DE PROFUNDIS.  Due to other upcoming commitments FEN are unable to do the London show and will be replaced by WINTERFYLLETH  
Thu 6 April, The Exchange, Bristol
Fri  7 April, The Dome, London (Winterfylleth will be filling in for Fen at this show)
Sat 8 April, The Ruby Lounge, Manchester
Sun 9 April, Ivory Blacks, Glasgow
With over two decades of experience, both in the studio and on the stage, TAAKE, or more precisely,  the band's formidable founder and frontman Hoest, has acquired almost legendary status.  Never abandoning the origins of Norwegian Black Metal, Hoest still manages to innovate and surprise fans the world-over, and, in a long-lasting collaboration with Dark Essence Records, consistently produces albums that are considered to be classics in their genre. 
Hoest's powerful persona and mesmerising stage presence makes TAAKE much sought after on the live circuit, with 2017 already gearing up to be as busy as the previous year.   As well as the four UK dates have already been confirmed for various festival appearances over the coming year.
More information about TAAKE can be found on the band's website at
 http://taake.svartekunst.no/  or on their Facebook page at  https://www.facebook.com/taakeofficial
TAAKE's music can be heard on Bandcamp at
 https://taake.bandcamp.com
The official video for the track “Nordbundet” from the TAAKE album “Noregs Vaapen” can be seen at  http://youtu.be/OAIIbnrYC7Q
Formed in early 2006 with the goal of producing Atmospheric Black Metal that incorporates elements of post-rock,  FEN have, since then, found themselves at the vanguard of a resurgent UK Black Metal scene.  With an EP, four full length albums, several splits and compilations, two European tours and numerous appearances at prestigious festivals under their belts, FEN's fifth full-length album "Winter", which is set for release on Aural Music on the 17th March,  is  the band's most ambitious, and yet most fundamental expression, yet.   FEN recently debuted a track from the album, on the strength of which two limited edition versions of "Winter" are already close to being sold out more than a month before release date.  The track "I (Pathway)" can be heard at  https://fenuk.bandcamp.com/album/winter
More information about FEN can be found on the band's Facebook page at  https://www.facebook.com/fenofficial
FEN's music can be heard on BandCamp at  https://fenuk.bandcamp.com
The official video for the track "Menhir - Supplicant" from FENs 2014 album "Carrion Skies" can be seen at  https://youtu.be/MqDGA1DqF0U
DE PROFUNDIS started life in 2005 playing a haunting blend of Doom and Death metal, but, by 2010, whilst still retaining the sombre, melodic atmosphere the band's sound became much more progressive in nature.  Now, after  years of honing their art, the sound of DE PROFUNDIS has been streamlined into concise, technical cacophonies that fuse ferocious Blackened Death metal with ethereal progressive overtones.  DE PROFUNDIS' extensive stage experience guarantees that this tour will be one too good to miss.  
More information about DE PROFUNDIS can be found at

"From Above Merciless Death Now Rains On Your Fucking Parade!" After six years since the release of their last album, Indiana's war-themed Death Machine INVASION has released DESTROYER OF MANKIND today on Abyss Records. The new album can be purchased at  this location.
And that's not all! The Veterans of Death have released the official video for "Approaching Cauldron of Horror," which features gripping WWII footage from Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor (December 7, 1941). Help yourself to some deliciously hellish USDM at the following link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpDA8BpE3mc
The band's fourth album is nothing short of a devastating onslaught of Death Metal! This brutal and uncompromising release demonstrates INVASION's vicious blitzkrieg and wages battle with new members Dan Klein (drums) and John Hehman (lead guitar), while main songwriter/lyricist/guitarist Peter Clemens continues his obsession with World War II.  Peter had this to say about the band's activities leading up to the recording of Destroyer of Mankind:
"It's been almost six years since Orchestrated Kill Maneuver was released on Rotting Corpse Records, and it's been somewhat of a frustrating endeavor.  We lost original drummer Dave 'Ross' Cady in early 2014 and had auditions for the vacancy, which led to more delays, but in the end we acquired Dan Klein (FIN/NOCTURNE) on drums and lead guitarist John Hehman (YEAR OF DESOLATION).  Plus we teamed up with SEA OF TRANQUILLITY/SCREAMKING guitarist Ralphael Hernandez who played on the Berserk Artillery Barrage CD from 2001, so things have been moving forward."
Asked about his switch from guitar to bass, Peter stated "I'm an average guitar player so I had no problem handing guitar duties to John Hehman.  He's an excellent musician with a good ear, and teaming up with him to work on the new INVASION recordings was an obvious choice.  John pretty much helped lay the groundwork for the recordings in his studio (Broken Toe/Bang Recordings) and things turned out great."
Stream album cut "The Divine Wind" at  this location.
NVASION has been in existence since the early 90s and has been destroying the complacent metal scene with their version of "War Metal" throughout those years with the release of these venomous  and horror filled recordings. Find and buy them now!

DUNKELHEIT PRODUCTIONS NEWSLETTER :
OUT NOW!!! | NEW RELEASES
We are pleased to inform, that we can present you two new releases. From far south-east asia, in detail: Malaysia, we bring you a brilliant gem of the history of Black Metal. NEBIRAS with their EP "The Great Rites", which was originally released back in 1998, is presented for the first time, after 18 years, exclusively on vinyl edition. Now, for the first time, after 18 years, we present you this masterpiece exclusively on vinyl! Coming in black and red color edition on 180g heavy vinyl (with brilliant silkscreen on side B) and 350 gsm gatefold-jacket plus additional color-poster in A2 format.
There is no doubt: This is a lecture that only could have been created by bands of the second wave of Black Metal and that should be a source of inspiration for more contemporary Black Metal acts from Scandinavia. Eventually a slight chill will rise from the soil of your “A Blaze in the Northern Sky” because Darkthrone's infamous Fenriz was one of the first to notice the quality of NEBIRAS and has honored them by giving his regards in the booklet of said album.
Punctual to the 1th February, we bring you another new release, this time from the dark deep sea of Finland. We present you a compilation of two EP's from 2015 of finnish Death/Doom band SHADES OF DEEP WATER  on noble solid-blue cassettes, with silver print.
The famous Finnish heaviness, established through the early works of AMORPHIS and the legendary THERGOTHON is pursued by this release. This limited tape has the power to make the listener feel the force of Funeral Death/Doom which this genre can unfold only when played with heart and soul.
NEBIRAS - The Great Rites   VINYL | DIGITAL
Nach über 18 Jahren wird eine wichtige Veröffentlichung des asiatischen Black Metals endlich neu aufgelegt, und erscheint nun erstmals auf Vinyl. Wir finden, es ist Zeit, dass die „The Great Rites“-EP von NEBIRAS die Aufmerksamkeit bekommt, die sie verdient hat.
Sobald die Plattenspielernadel das pechschwarze Vinyl zum ersten Mal berührt, wird man schlagartig in eine Zeit zurückversetzt, als der Black Metal definiert wurde. Kalter Hass trifft auf surrende Gitarren und eine Atmosphäre, die unverwechselbar ist. Sofort wird klar: Das hier ist eine achtzehn-minütige Lehrstunde, wie sie eigentlich nur von Black Metal Bands der zweiten Phase kreiert werden konnte und von der sich viele heutige skandinavische Bands inspirieren lassen sollten. 
Vermutlich steigen auch gerade feine Nebelschwaden aus eurer „A Blaze in the Northern Sky“ auf, denn Fenriz von DARKTHRONE hat bereits sehr früh die Qualität dieser Band erkannt und NEBIRAS namentlich im Booklet des Kultalbums verewigt. Dass Bandkopf Agathos Daemon kein Unbekannter in Norwegen war, zeigt sein früher Briefwechsel mit Euronymous. Unüberhörbar ist, dass diese beiden Kontakte auf das Klangbild von NEBIRAS abgefärbt haben, denn ein ums andere Mal fühlt man sich direkt nach Norwegen versetzt. Aber nicht nur mit den skandinavischen Größen hielt Agathos Daemon regen Kontakt, sondern viel mehr mit der gesamten europäischen Black-Metal-Szene, als sie noch im Entstehen begriffen war, so auch mit SAMAEL und ROTTING CHRIST.
Als Kopf hinter dem Watchtower Fraternity Zirkel, dem malaysischen Pendant zum norwegischen Black Circle, hielt Agathos Daemon die Fäden in der Hand und formte mit RATOR, CONQUEROR (Mal) und BAZZAH eine starke Szene.
Besonderer Dank gilt Wan Syamsul vom malaysischen Deadhead-Zine sowie Afterlife Productions, der diese Veröffentlichung überhaupt erst möglich gemacht hat. Dunkelheit Produktionen wird sich dieser Aufgabe mit dem nötigen Respekt annehmen. Gewidmet wird diese Veröffentlichung dem früheren Gitarristen Y. Occultust, der zwei Jahre vor der Erstveröffentlichung bei einem Autounfall verstarb. 
Dieses wichtige Stück asiatischer Musikgeschichte wird als 180g schweres Vinyl zusammen mit einem farbigen A2-Poster in einer Auflage von 500 Stück erscheinen. Die ersten 150 Kopien werden Sammlerstücke in blutrotem Vinyl, die restlichen 350 Einheiten erscheinen in klassischem schwarz. Die B-Seite enthält keine Musik, sondern ist mit einem okkulten Emblem bedruckt, das die Aura von NEBIRAS gebührend würdigt.

SHADES OF DEEP WATER - SYVIEN SÄVYJEN UNIVERSUMI​/​THE DESOLATION  TAPE | DIGITAL
Gönnen wir uns noch einen allerletzten tiefen Atemzug, bevor wir in die abgründige Welt von J.H., dem Künstler hinter SHADES OF DEEP WATER, eintauchen. Denn sobald die ersten Klänge seiner Gitarre den Raum erfüllen, werden wir auch schon aus dem Moment gerissen und gewaltsam unter Wasser gedrückt, nur damit wir erkennen wie nichtig wir alle sind. 
Über uns bescheint der Vollmond die spiegelglatte Wasseroberfläche, während wir darunter langsam mit weit aufgerissenen Augen durch die Melodien davon getragen werden. Tiefer, immer tiefer hinab in die Welt von SHADES OF DEEP WATER. Und das mit einem Lächeln auf unseren Lippen, denn das ist Musik für Genießer, die einen Augenblick innehalten und dabei jede Note in sich aufsaugen können.
Es ist die bekannte finnische Schwere, welche die Frühwerke von AMORPHIS und die legendären THERGOTHON so bedeutend gemacht hat und die durch diese Veröffentlichung am Leben gehalten wird. Dieses limitierte, schwarze Tape ermöglicht es, den Hörer die Macht des Funeral Death/Doom spüren zu lassen, die dieses Genre nur entfalten kann, wenn es mit Herzblut und Hingabe gespielt wird. Zwei bedeutende Veröffentlichungen der bisher 11-jährigen Bandgeschichte, „The Desolation“ und „Syvien sävyjen universumi“, werden nun endlich in digitaler Form und als Kassette erhältlich sein und können somit noch mehr Hörer unter Wasser, in die Tiefen des Meeres, ziehen. Limitiert auf einhundert see-blaue Kassetten mit noblem silbernen Aufdruck.

"SYSTEMSTÖRUNG– DIE GESCHICHTE VON NOISE RECORDS" erzählt die Geschichte eines der wichtigsten Metal-Labels der achtziger Jahre.
Noise Records wurden im Schatten der Berliner Mauer von Karl-Ulrich Walterbach, in den frühen Tagen ein bekennender Anarchist, gegründet.
Die Hauptbands der Firma – Hellhammer/Celtic Frost, Coroner, Gamma Ray, Grave Digger, Helloween, Kreator, Running Wild, Sabbat, Tankard und Voivod – waren ruppig, innovativ und sehr einflussreich.
Sie prägten die weltweite Metal-Szene, wie wir sie heute kennen, entscheidend mit.
Mit O-Tönen von Walterbach, seinen Bands, Angestellten und Kollegen aus der Musikindustrie (basierend auf mehr als 75 Exklusiv-Interviews) gewährt "Systemstörung – Die Geschichte von Noise Records" ungeschönte Einblicke in die ereignisreiche Historie eines Labels, das während seiner Existenz zwischen 1983 und 2007 auf weit mehr als 400 eigenständige Veröffentlichungen und insgesamt über zehn Millionen verkaufte Tonträgern zurückblicken kann.
Mit legendären Bands und ihren wegweisenden Alben einher gingen Gerichtsprozesse, Streitigkeiten über Verträge, verpfuschte Konzerttourneen, desaströse Stilwechsel und komplizierte bis angespannte Beziehungen zwischen dem Betreiber und den Künstlern, die er betreute.
Dieses Buch macht deutlich, dass sich nur sehr wenige Metal-Plattenfirmen mit einem solchen Vermächtnis wie Noise brüsten dürfen.
Das Cover-Artwork des Buches stammt von Michel „Away“ Langevin (Voivod).
Mit einem exklusiven Vorwort von Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian).
"Systemstörung – Die Geschichte von Noise Records" beinhaltet insgesamt 225 Fotos, viele davon zum allerersten Male veröffentlicht. Zum Autoren: David E. Gehlke ist ein amerikanischer Metal-Journalist und schreibt seit 2001. Bis heute hat er für Formate wie Metal Maniacs gearbeitet und war Redakteur bei Blistering.com, einer der der ersten nordamerikanischen Webseiten für Hardrock und Metal.

WHILE SHE SLEEPS haben sich die perfekte Art und Weise ausgesucht, um ihr 10-Jähriges Jubiläum als Band zu feiern:
Sie sind nun vollständig unabhängig!
Das ist ein mutiger, eindrucksvoller und kraftvoller Schritt, der das vergangene Jahrzehnt passend widerspiegelt.
Mehr noch, es zeigt, dass sich das uralte Klischee auch noch im Jahre 2017 bewahrheitet: Wenn man will, dass etwas richtig gemacht wird, sollte man es selbst machen.
"Die neuen Songs schauen auf die Welt als ein Ganzes, aber sie erzählen auch viel über uns", sagt Sänger Lawrence ‘Loz’ Taylor. "Wir sind alle schon durch einige Höhen und Tiefen in den letzten Jahren gegangen und ich glaube, dass es uns wichtig ist, dies in unseren Songs auszudrücken, weil unsere Musik unsere ganz persönliche Heilung und Therapie ist. Es gibt sehr viel Herzschmerz von unseren persönlichen Erfahrungen in diesen Songs, aber trotzdem wirft es auch gleichzeitig eine globale Sicht auf die Dinge."
"Wir werden niemals über weltliche Themen und Politik singen", führt Gitarrist Sean Long fort. "Denn das tun wir ohne es überhaupt zu versuchen. Aber, wie Loz schon gesagt hat, auf diesem Album ist es genau auf den Punkt gebracht, wie wir persönlich mit diesen Dingen umgehen. Wir schreien nicht nur die Probleme der Welt heraus, sondern singen davon wie wir persönlich über diese Dinge denken und was wir dabei fühlen! Ich habe noch nie eine stärkere Verbundenheit zu den Momenten im Studio gefühlt wenn ich Musik schreibe, als bei dieser Platte."
Insofern macht "You Are We" mehr, als nur die Brücke zwischen der Vergangenheit und der Gegenwart zu schlagen. Es zeigt in ungefilterter, grotesker und bezaubernder Herrlichkeit, wer WHILE SHE SLEEPS wirklich sind. Es präsentiert sie als ihre eigene treibende Kraft und als eine Band, die nach ihren eigenen Bedingungen arbeitet und ihre Musik genau so schreibt. Es ist eine Platte, die nicht nur von den Problemen und dem Druck der Vergangenheit geprägt ist, sondern die aus ihnen heraus geschaffen und mit der Leidenschaft gefüllt wurde, die die Band schon immer vorangetrieben und dazu ermutigt hat, ein ganzes Jahrzehnt so weiter zu machen.
“Das was WHILE SHE SLEEPS aus macht”, erklärt Taylor, “ist, dass wir immer unseren eigenen Weg gehen. Umso länger wir dies tun, umso eher werden die Leute verstehen, dass wir nirgendwo anders lang gehen werden. Wir machen einfach mit unserem eigenen Ding weiter. Und wenn wir es schaffen einen neuen Sound und Stil zu entdecken, aber dabei trotzdem noch wie WIR zu klingen und wir uns damit weiterentwickeln können ohne den typischen WHILE SHE SLEEPS-Sound zu verlieren, ist das fantastisch!“
„Sogar meiner Mutter gefällt es“, lacht Long. „Ich bin wirklich überglücklich!“
Auch Ihr werdet begeistert sein!

The haunting new opus of the Polish four-piece is one of these records which will make a strong impact upon the extreme scene in their homeland and beyond. Hailed as “black metal change you can believe in” (Decibel Magazine) or “a soundtrack to an opium dream” (No Clean Singing), Hope consists of four acts of pale melancholy on a stylistic crossroad. The album is yet another chapter of a narrative run by inner struggles.
Hope is a follow-up to 2013's critically acclaimed Ansia, which put the band under the global spotlight. The record's enigmatic cover artwork was designed by Bartek Rogalewicz (Rogi, Non Opus Dei, Behemoth).
The record will be available on CD, LP and in digital format.

Turkey's black metal act YAYLA releases "PAS.TO.RALE"via Merdümgiriz Records .
YAYLA is back with its fifth full-length"Pas.to.rale", the first release from this ambient black metal act in four years.
Released by Merdümgiriz Records on February 5th, 2017, the project from multi-instrumentalist Emir Toğrul presents a heavy fusion of ambient and metal, and after the departure from the monotonous sound of the now cult trilogy, "Pas.to.rale" sees YAYLA sounding more dynamic, oppressive and hypnotic than ever before, and while there are countless influences from different styles and techniques, this album is surprisingly tight and unified
YAYLA's Emir Toğrul comments: «"Pas.to.rale" takes many forms with lengthy instrumental tracks, from synth driven string ensemble ambiences to psychedelic guitar tracks, to “traditional” black and death metal songs with very unconventional structures fused with synths. The YAYLA concept is at its pinnacle in “Pas.to.rale”, with the name of the band and our whole concept of nature based metal music coming to an alchemical home as we delve back into our roots after all these years of adventures as VIRANESIR and BLIGHTED in an ironic existential absurdity. It's a tale of dungeon style atmosphere, relentless black metal, nostalgic overdose and musical hypnosis.»
As with all his work on Merdümgiriz Records, each copy of "Pas.to.rale" CD, Tape, t-shirt and patch will be handmade in the artisanal style. Emir paints the discs, cuts and inserts the prints for the jewel case and jacket, making all non-machined parts from scratch. All current and upcoming merch comes to fans directly from the hand of the creator himself.

THE FUROR (Australia) - 'CAVALRIES OF THE OCCULT'  
Genre- Black/Death Metal  
For fans of - Impiety, Behemoth, Belphegor,Ravager, Bestial Winds, Conqueror, Revenge
THE FUROR from Australia prepare an explosive concoction of death, black and thrash metal and the result is scathing to say the least. Drumming phenomenon Dizazter is a part of Singaporean legends IMPIETY and not only does that have an influence over here, he's taking it to a different extreme. Mind-boggling drumming aside, his skills with guitars too are no less impressive and he has laid down all the songs for this album. Aided by Hellhound and The Grand Impaler, THE FUROR whip up a storm of biblical proportions. From start to finish, the album is absolutely unforgiving but it has its share of clever variations and deft tempo changes without derailing the entire momentum. 'Cavalries of the Occult' will go down as one of the most venomous albums of its time. 
Track list: 
1. 30 Year War 
2. Cavalries of the Occult 
3. Death Manifest 
4. Fomes Peccati 
5. Lake of Fire 
6. Rampage Upon the Rational 
7. Second Coming Slaughtered 
8. Storm of Swords 
9. Totaliterror 
Line up: 
Dizazter - Drums/Vocals/Songwriting 
Hellhound - Guitars 
The Grand Impaler - Bass 
Produced by Nizam Aziz of IMPIETY at Studio 47, Singapore

NEWS VIC RECORDS :
XYSMA – “YEAH “
XYSMA was founded in Naantali, Finland, in 1988. The band has been openly granted as the FIRST EVER Grindcore band from Finland. XYSMA released five full lenghts albums and changed style from grindcore death metal in the early days to rock heavy metal. XYSMA is still active today
Cult album YEAH from Finish death / grind band XYSMA now finally re-issued on LP and CD. 'Yeah' was recorded at the legendary Sunlight Studios with Tomas Skogsberg (Entombed, Dismember, Therion) in Sweden in 1990.  Early Xysma had its roots in the flourishing UK grind scene with bands as Carcass and such. They also incooperated the well know Scandinivian death metal elements and this all resulted in the typical Finish sound.
Bonus to the CD are  the legendary 'Above the Mind of Morbidity' 12'' from early 1990 and the cult e.p. 'Fata Morgana' also from early 1990,  22 tracks in total.
SLAUGHTER (CAN) -  “NOCTURNAL HELL, SURENDER OR DIE “
Slaughter was a Canadian proto death / thrash band. They formed in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1984 playing extreme metal as one of the first bands and briefly featured Chuck Schuldiner  (Death) on guitar in 1986. Originally, they released several demos, one e.p. and two full albums including the cult album 'Strappado'. The band Slaughter is worlwide credited for influencing death metal and the chainsaw guitar (death metal) sound, later on copied by the enitire Scandinavian death metal scene. They eventually broke up because of their annoyance for the music industry and the lack of support in the 80's.
The cult ep Nocturnal Hell, the first real death metal recording of the band actually, is remastered by Tom Palms (Phlebotomized), the ‘Surrender of Die’ demo by Dave Hewson (Slaughter).  Extensive liner notes by Olivier 'Zoltar' Badin (Catherdral, Old Man's Child, Dark Funeral, Septic Flesh).

ALTAR – “ AND GOD CREATED SATAN TO BLAME FOR HIS MISTAKES “
The early band's name was MANTICORE, formed in 1988. It was changed for ALTAR in 1990. With the release of their demo-tape 'And God Created Satan To Blame For His Mistakes' back in 1992, the band started to become well-known in the death metal underground scene. It sold worldwide very well and soon every insider had heard of the brutal music and message ALTAR tried to spread. The first ALTAR-album 'Youth Against Christ' released in 1994 hit the scene with a shock. The intense brutality on this album got great reviews everywhere; it even went into the Dutch alternative charts.
This release 'And God Created Satan To Blame For His Mistakes' is the official demos re-issue, Bonus to the album are seven tracks, recorded live in Rotterdam in early 1993.
All songs are restored and remastered by Berthus Westerhuijs at Franky's Recording Kitchen (God Dethroned, Asphyx, Severe Torture) in 2016. Coverart by Roberto Toderico (Asphyx, Soulburn, Sinister). The booklet contains many rare pics and an exculsive in depth interview done by Pim Blankenstein (ex Lords of Metal journalist and  Officium Triste vocalist).

REACTOR - THE TRIBUNAL FROM ABOVE
Reactor from Zürich, Switzerland formed in 1991. The line up was: Neni - Guitar, vocals, Dany - Bass, Pauli - Guitar, and Howi - Drums. In 1992 they changed their name to Sickening Gore (without Neni and Howi however) and released one album on Massace records from Germany.  REACTOR relased one demo in 1991 titled ' The Tribunal From Above'
Better than their work in Sickening Gore, Reactor was a progressive death metal unit that on The Tribunal Above displayed great potential. Much more melodic and outgoing then what they would become, Reactor was a truly original presence on the old school death metal scene, combining aggression, melody and unique atmospheres. Listening to this almost makes you wish they stuck with this style.REACTOR played many shows in the early 90’s with bands such as Massacre, Asphyx, Bolt Thrower, Running Wild, Biohazard and Kreator.
The demo clocks in at over 32 minutes in 5 songs (which is longer than the Sickenig Gore full-length effort, Destructive Reality), including some minor noises which are on the actual mastertape too (a base overdrive that wasn't  noticed, but that was 1991! Analog and raw as shit, but thats how it was back then).
The album was produced by famous Swiss musician Christian Muzik (Calhoun Conquer) who also played all lead guitars on this recording. Drummer Howi is nowadays drum tech for bands as Guns ‘n Roses, Korn and Foo Fighters. Coverart by Roberto Toderico (Soulburn, Asphyx, Sinister).
1. Deformed Personality
2.  Near Dark
3.  The Tribunal Above
4. Religious Fight
5.  Circle Of Eternity

HELLWITCH was formed in 1984. The band released five demos, several ep's, compilation Cd's and two full lenght albums over the years. Hailing from Florida, the band has (ex) members who played with other legendary Florida bands:
Alex Marquez (Solstice), Frank Watkins (Obituary, Gorgoroth), Joe Schnessel (Malevolent Creation), Gabe Lewandovski (Resurrection), but above all founding member and main songwriter Pat Rainieri on vocals and guitars. SYZYGIAL MISCREANCY is a killer hybrid of early death and thrash metal..
The debut album was recorded at Morrisound Studios, Florida with Scott Burns (Death, Malevolent Creation, Cannibal Corpse, Deicide). 
Bonus to the album are two soundboard recorded shows, live in Fort Lauderdale, from 2012 & 2013

NASTY SURGEONS (Spain) - 'EXHUMATION REQUIEM'  
Genre- Death Metal/Grindcore  
For fans of - CARCASS, NECROPSY, THE COUNTYMEDICAL EXAMINERS, HAEMORRHAGE, IMPALED, EXHUMED, PATHOLOGIST, (early) CARCARIASS
NASTY SURGEONS are one of the most exciting new bands around. Formed by members of MISTWEAVER and MASS BURIAL, they've hit a home run with this one straight off. While CARCASS-worship has been done to death, not to mention the gore adoration and sub-sub genre formations, this one is quite remarkable. Instead of going the splattery way, they're going in the direction of PATHOLOGIST, adopting tasteful solos, and early CARCARIASS, where they
expand upon the CARCASS template. It's virtually grind meets death metal but leaning more towards the latter instead of going gory. The highlight here is the songwriting - it's superbly structured in a way that it doesn't get tiring as most bands in this style do. They don't obsess over a particular album/era of CARCASS and just prefer to do things their own way after imbibing the essence. The result is outstanding and this is easily one of the freshest sounding albums in this vein. Do not miss out on this!  
Track list: 
1. The Resurrectionists 05:18
2. The Creation of the Monstrosity 03:50
3. Human Flesh is Also Food 03:10
4. Antemortem Dissection 03:32
5. Autopsy's Protocol 03:49
6. Nasty Surgeons 05:18
7. Ode to Bad Taste 03:46
8. Burnt with Sulfuric Acid 03:46

10. Exhumation Requiem 03:35

DAEMONIAC (Italy) - 'SPAWN OF THE FALLEN'  
Genre- Old School Death Metal  
For fans of - GRAVE, DISMEMBER, UNLEASHED,ENTOMBED, VERMIN, MACRODEX, MERCILESS, NIHILIST
DAEMONIAC are going from strength to strength. If you thought their previous album on Xtreem Music was killer, wait till you hear this one. It sounds absolutely massive and hearkens back to the time in Sweden when the death metal scene was rife with bands trying to sound heavier and more evil than anyone else they knew. This sounds like a slice from that golden era. It's unblemished by trends and is the purest strain of death metal you'll get these days. They even have that vaguely mysterious quality to their music that lends to it a special appeal. It's as if the last 25 years never happened. Death metal fans are going to be all over this and the Italians are doing it with a lot of passion, confidence and class. 
Track list: 
1. Intro / Macabre Eucharist 06:51
2. Regurgitated From Hell 04:02
3. From Depths of Hideous Chasms 05:36
4. Spawn of the Fallen 05:00
5. Intro / Procreation of Hatred 05:11
6. Cursed Hecatomb 06:42
7. Upon Golgotha 05:01
8. Cremation (Macrodex cover) 05:26

BLACK METALLERS NORDJEVEL ANNOUNCE EP, EXPAND LINEUP AND SIGN WITH THE FLAMING ARTS AGENCY
On the heels of thevery successful self-titled debut album, Black Metallers NORDJEVEL are set to release "KRIGSMAKT", a 7" EP, which will hit the streets on Osmose Productions on the 20th February.
With artwork by Khaos Diktator Design, the three-track EP will be limited to 500 copies, the B side of which is silk screen printed and comes with a printed inner sleeve . Tracklisting on "Krigsmakt" is as follows:
1. Krigsmakt
2. For De Falne...
3. Into Ever Deeper Depths 
"Krigsmakt" is now available to pre-order from  http://www.osmoseproductions.com/item/2/94903-110402-1201-1-0/118522577/nordjevel-krigsmakt.html
NORDJEVEL was founded by frontman Doedsadmiral (SVARTELDER, DOEDSVANGR, ENEPSIGOS) and guitarist Nord (FATAL IMPACT, TVANGESTE, BYRDI), and, making use of Doedsadmiral's considerable skills at bringing together musicians who are not only hugely experienced, but who also share the same musical ideas and ideals, the band's ranks were quickly swelled by MARDUK's Fredrik Widigs on drums, and former RAGNAROK bassist DzeptiCunt.  With NORDJEVEL's distinctive sound firmly set, the the band have added another guitarist to their lineup in the shape of Morten "Noralf" Kleftaas, who had previously appeared with the band as a session live guitarist. 
The success of the band's debut album meant that virtually overnight offers started to come in for live appearances, and, as a result, NORDJEVEL have handed their booking and management responsibilities to the Flaming Arts Agency. Commenting on the new collaboration the band had this to say:
"We have to admit that the success of the debut album caught us a little by surprise.  We knew we had something special, but the response from the fans and critics was overwhelming, and resulted in a lot of interest in us playing live.  We had to totally rethink everything very quickly, and came up with what we consider to be a perfect solution - and that was teaming up with Flaming Arts.  Patricia Thomas, who has been Doedsadmiral's personal manager for longer than either of them care to remember, and who works with all his projects, will continue handling all of NORDJEVEL's PR. She and Flaming Arts have frequently worked together over the years and know how each other functions, which is a big plus for everyone concerned as there is no learning process.  So now we have a great band and a great team, and we can look forward to the future, which will include more live appearances world-wide".
Aside from preparing for their already confirmed live appearances, which include a UK tour in April, a US tour in May, which will culminate in an appearance at the Maryland Deathfest, and an appearance at the Gothoom Open Air Festival in Slovakia in July, NORDJEVEL are currently working on their second full-length album.

London's premium Old School Extreme Metal force CRAVEN IDOL unleash their second album of ruthless first wave blackened thrash in the vein of early Bathory, Gospel Of The Horns, Manilla Road and Inquisiton.  
After four years of toil, the U.K. four-piece present: THE SHACKLES OF MAMMON, an uncompromising and unique blend of tag-less extreme metal from the early days of horrible hellnoise. 
Inspirations are many. Be it heavy metal Gods such as Mercyful Fate, Candlemass, Sortilege, Master's Hammer or Manilla Road; early pioneers like Poison (Ger), Samael, Razor, Bathory, Venom; pretenders to the throne like Gospel Of The Horns, D666, Inquisiton...  
But don't be fooled - this is no tribute act.
Recorded at Birmingham's Priority Studios and engineered by Esoteric's Greg Chandler (and mastered by Dan Lowndes at Resonance Sound), The Shackles Of Mammon boasts an old school production as well as Craven Idol's most fierce and varied songs to date.
The album boasts artwork by the extraordinarily twisted Daniel Corcuera. The artist's powerful take on Sascha Schneider's 1896 wood carving 'Mammon und sein Sklave' is a striking work of art
Lyrically the album deals with the vices of man, the plagues they unleashed upon themselves, and the rationalisation of its own actions - be it in tragedy or ruin - through the creation of deities and cults. Mammon the - Demon of Avarice - reigns above all, whilst the black arts and countless religions seek to justify human failure
The Shackles of Mammon will be released April 14 on LP, CD, and MC via Dark Descent Records.
CRAVEN IDOL live dates:
April 8th - London @ Black Heart
April 15th - Glasgow @ North Of The Wall Fest
May 15th - London @ Underworld w/ Nifelheim 
Obscenitor - Guitar
Vrath - Vocals, Guitars
Suspiral - Bass

NEW VIDEO FROM NORWEGIAN VIKING METALLERS HELHEIM REVEALED
With their ninth full-length album "landwarijaR" earning huge plaudits for Norwegian Viking Metallers HELHEIM, the band have now released a second video from the album, this time for the track "Ymr" which can be seen at  https://youtu.be/ikkKoB56JVM
Like the preceding video for the track "Baklengs mot intet", "Ymr" was directed by Guilherme Henriques, and this time the band  concentrates on live footage filmed at Inside Live & Rock Café by Mathis Backe interspersed with film some of the glorious scenery that surrounds HELHEIM's home town of Bergen. 
Ymr" also has a theme running through it, one that is in contrast to that expressed in the "Baklengs mot intet".  As HELHEIM's V'gandr explains:
"With "Ymr" Helheim explores the terrain that might result from the  complete enlightenment of knowledge. The tree of life is the symbol of this path and you may wonder if this enlightenment is of a positive or of a negative energy. When the One with the one eye closes it, that is when we must open up ours and see what lies ahead.  "Ymr" is the primal scream, the essence of man, and to grow from there you have to climb. Whereas "Baklengs mot intet" showed no hope in its cloak of negativity, "Ymr" might kindle a tiny spark - but that's up to the eye of the beholder or should I say, the ears of the listener."

BLACK METALLERS DOEDSVANGR REVEAL TRACK AND DETAILS FROM UPCOMING DEBUT FULL-LENGTH ALBUM  
With a lineup comprising  Shatraug (HORNA, SARGEIST, BEHEXEN and NIGHTBRINGER),   Anti-Christian (TSJUDER,  BEATEN TO DEATH) and founder and frontman Doedsadmiral (NORDJEVEL, SVARTELDER, ENEPSIGOS),  it was inevitable that there would be interest in DOEDSVANR's debut full-length album, "SATAN OV  SUNS", and today the band have revealed details.
Satan Ov Suns"  was recorded at Velvet Recording in Spydeberg with Christer Krohg, whilst drums were recorded at the  Klang Studios in Oslo with Bjarne Stensli.  Artwork is by Khaos Diktator Design.

1. Our Lord Cometh!
2. Rituals
3. Doedsvangr
4. Black Dawn
5. Northern Watchtowers
6. Diaboli
7. Gnashing Of Teeth
8. Breath Of Lucifer
9. Throne Of Black Illumination
10. Blood Whores
11. Black Sun Nimbus
"Satan Ov Suns" will hit the streets on the 27th March on Immortal Frost Productions.  "Rituals", a track from the album, which will be available in CD, Double Vinyl and Digital formats, can be heard at http://digital.immortalfrostproductions.com/album/satan-ov-suns
Despite the evil feel that pervades the whole album, DOEDSVANGR's vastly experienced Norwegian and Finnish members have not fallen into the trap of producing a formulaic Black Metal album, but have been able to create eleven tracks that  offer extreme variations, and, it has to be said, "a lot of groove". 
Commenting on the formation of DOEDSVANGR the band's  prolific frontman "Doedsadmiral" recently had this to say:
"All my other bands each have a different sound  and musical ethos one from the other, and DOEDSVANGR is one that comes from a much darker direction.  DOEDSVANGR, like the other projects in which I'm involved, does not come from me alone, but is the result of two great musicians coming onboard so that together we can create music the way we all want it to sound, and perform it in a way that we all want to hear it.  Will DOEDSVSANGR perform live one day?  That remains to be seen, let's just see where the album takes us first".
"Satan Ov Suns" is now available to pre-order in CD and Vinyl formats from

Inspired by the likes of Suffocation, Disavowed and Deeds of Flesh, to name a few; expect a hard hitting bombardment of supreme brutal death metal.

GOAT WORSHIP (Brazil) - 'BLOOD AND STEEL'   
Genre- Black/Thrash/Punk Metal  
For fans of - SLAYER, SARCOPHAGO, VULCANO,SLAUGHTER (Canada), BATHORY, CENDRA, DESASTER, KREATOR
Xtreem Music has a penchant for thrash and here's another evidence of a brilliant discovery from the Spanish label. GOAT WORSHIP from Brazil here churn out some excellent black metal-flavoured thrash with gusto. It's reminiscent of the glorious late '80s period in that country but GOAT WORSHIP's album sounds fresh and crisp and still retains the old charm. The band sounds fired up and belts out nine tracks of aggressive black/thrash metal here that will have everyone moving about and headbanging in a frenzy. 'Blood and Steel' is merciless and lethal, and will be one of the best sounding releases you'll hear in this style today.
Track list: 
1. Intro 01:16
2. Falklands War 04:44
3. Hall of the Dead 03:45
4. Cremation Funeral 03:46
5. Only the Strong Will Survive 05:05
6. God of Thunder 04:42
7. Goddess of Lust 03:44
8. Religion of Lies 03:49
9. Helheim 06:22
