Die Metal-Energiebündel WHILE SHE SLEEPS aus Sheffield, England haben ein weiteres neues Video zum Song 'Feel' veröffentlicht. Schaut Euch das Video hier an: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y88yqyRhaVo
Der Song stammt vom kommenden Album »You Are We«, das am 21. April 2017 über Arising Empire erscheint und hier vorbestellt werden kann:  http://geni.us/WSSYouAreWe
Schaut Euch 'Silence Speaks' feat. Oli Sykes hier an: https://youtu.be/eH6tqXQNWUA
Schaut euch 'You Are We' hier an: https://youtu.be/TM7DKXxAlH0
und 'Civil Isolation' hier:
 https://youtu.be/uvJoXjk7mcg
Schaut euch 'Hurricane' hier an:  https://youtu.be/1QH_1iN7ZmE
WHILE SHE SLEEPS verwandelten ein 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 Homestudio 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.

STREAMS OF BLOOD- ULTIMATE DESTINATION MMXVII
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Blasphemy Halls
VÖ: 12.05.2017
STREAMS OF BLOOD wurde 2009 von Thymos und Tavor gegründet. Im Sommer 2009 nahm die Band ihre erste Mini-CD "Antilife" auf, das Schlagzeug wurde von Torturer (MOR DAGOR, BELPHEGOR) eingetrümmert. Im Winter 2010 schloss sich Schlagzeuger Blood Hammer (u.a. BELPHEGOR, PANZERCHRIST, Ex-PARAGON BELIAL) der Band an. Für STREAMS OF BLOOD ging es daraufhin erneut ins Studio, um das erste Album "The Descend To The Source Of Disorder" einzuspielen, welches im September 2011 von Articaz und Ketzer Records gemeinsam veröffentlicht wurde. Im Februar 2013 erschien die erste Version von "Ultimate Destination" und bereits im Frühjahr 2017 schloss die Band mit "Allgegenwärtig" ein weiteres Kapitel der Bandgeschichte ab.
Motiviert durch das positive Feedback zu "Allgegenwärtig" und dem günstigen Zeitpunkt, war es Thymos ein Anliegen, "Ultimate Destination" noch einmal neu herauszubringen. Allerdings nicht in gleicher Form, sondern komplett neu gemixt und gemastered: "Ultimate Destination MMXVII". Rückblickend erkannten STREAMS OF BLOOD, dass der Sound der Erstveröffentlichung nicht das Optimum aus den Songs geholt hat. Daher gibt es nun diese neue Version mit dem Ziel, einen wärmeren, druckvolleren Sound zu erschaffen, der vor allem einen besseren Schlagzeug-Sound erzeugt.

RED MOON ARCHITECT ”RETURN OF THE BLACK BUTTERFLIES”
Die Ortschaft Kouvola im Südosten Finnlands wird als größter, beleuchteter Friedhof des Landes bezeichnet. Es ist also kein Wunder, das sich dort eine Funeral Doom Metal-Band wie Red Moon Architect formte, deren drittes Album ”Return of the Black Butterflies” am 19.5. erscheinen wird. Das Album ist zudem das erste, auf welchem der letztes Jahr zur Band dazugestossene Sänger Ville Rutanen (ex-Casket) zu hören ist.
‘Return of the Black Butterflies’ ist ganz klar unser bisher bestes Album, und es setzt mit seinen gewaltigen Klangwelten und quälend schönen Kompositionen völlig neue Maßstäbe. Die Songs sind vielschichtig, dynamisch und heavier als auf unseren v Werken. Das Album bewegt sich von Anfang bis Ende durch tiefe Gewässer, und man kann sich ihm während der 49 Minuten nicht entziehen. Wenn ihr euch 2017 nur ein einziges Album anhört, dann dieses!“ macht Red Moon Architect Mastermind Saku Moilanen eine klare Ansage.

Das neue NOCTE OBDUCTA Album „TOTHOLZ (EIN RAUNEN AUS DEM KLAMMWALD)“, wird am 26. Mai offiziell im Handel erscheinen. Wer noch keine Gelegtenheit hatte ein Exemplar auf den aktuellen Shows der Band zu ergattern, kann im aktuellen Albumteaser einen ersten Höreindruck zum Album gewinnen.
Der Nachfolger zu „Mogontiacum (Nachdem die Nacht herabgesunken …)“ enthält 7 Songs bei einer Spielzeit von 42 Minuten und wird außer auf CD auch in einer limitierten Vinyl Auflage erhältlich sein. Die Vinyl Edition wird zudem ein anderes Coverartwork als die CD haben.
Musikalisch schließen Nocte Obducta auf ihrem mittlerweile 12. Album den Kreis zu ihren musikalischen Wurzeln. „Totholz“ ist ein rauhes Stück Metal, welches in Verbindung mit den bandtypischen Harmonien nichts von der Einzigartigkeit der Band einbüßt!

Auf dem kommenden AGRYPNIE-Album wird Eviga (Dornenreich) sowohl mit seiner unverkennbaren Stimme als auch einem tiefgründigen Text bei einem der neuen Titel vertreten sein.
Nach Aussage von AGRYPNIE-Mastermind Torsten "eine besondere Zusammenarbeit mit diesem über die Jahre zu einem sehr guten Freund gewordenen Ausnahmemusiker bedeutet."
Sollte nun die berechtigte Frage entstehen, warum der erste Gastmusiker bereits vor allen anderen Albumdetails veröffentlicht wird... Auf dem Ragnarök-Festival wird das Gespann AGRYPNIE/Eviga besagtes Stück mit dem Titel "Aus Zeit erhebt sich Ewigkeit" exklusiv zum ersten Mal live präsentieren.

Wir freuen uns sehr, Euch mit 'DISCHARGED' die neue Single unserer Modern Metal Shootingstars THE LEGION:GHOST zu präsentieren!
Das Quintett aus dem Raum Aachen / Köln besteht erst seit Anfang 2015 und behauptet sich mit seinem im September 2016 vorgelegten Albumdebüt '...TWO FOR ETERNITY' selbstbewusst als neue Macht in Metal-Ring! Aber die Jungs sorgen nicht nur mit einer ständig wachsenden Schar eingeschworener Fans, die ihrer Legion die Treue halten, deutschlandweit für Aufsehen in der Szene. Denn THE LEGION:GHOST, das ist ein Gesamtkonzept: Die Emergenz aus einem Sound mit dem Druck einer heranstürmenden Kompanie, erzählten Geschichten, Visuellem und der untrennbaren Einheit von Band und Fans. Ein homogenes Ganzes und Metal straight from the heart!
Nun legen THE LEGION:GHOST mit ihrer neuen 3-Track-Single 'DISCHARGED' nach und zeigen sich von einer offeneren, verspielteren Seite. Der Titeltrack 'DISCHARGED' ist mit seiner markanten Lead-Gitarre und dem beinahe hymnischen Refrain deutlich melodiöser, als man es bisher von der Band gewohnt war. Textlich widmen sich THE LEGION:GHOST hier dem Hochgefühl, dem gesellschaftlich initiierten Erwartungsdruck zu entsagen: 'I hate everything you want me to be / Discharge all your baggage to be free'. Das Elektropop-Duo CHROM steuert einen Remix des Albumtracks 'MYPRIVACY.COM' bei, der im neuen Gewand mit wabernden Synthieflächen und einem treibenden Elektrobeat erheblich düsterer ausfällt. Den krönenden Abschluss macht die energiegeladene Liveversion der Erfolgssingle 'UNWELCOME', aufgenommen beim Glasfeast Cologne 2016.
'DISCHARGED' erscheint am 28.04.2017 (VÖ) als reines Digitalrelease bei NOIZGATE Records.
Bereits drei Tage vor dem Verkaufsstart der Single erscheint am 25.04.2017 im offiziellen YouTube-Channel von THE LEGION:GHOST unter  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgD23ZTF1gqT3GNQCe3IYCQ übrigens das neue Video zu 'DISCHARGED'. Schaut unbedingt mal rein!

Virtually peerless, DRUG HONKEY from US are marching on since almost a couple of decades and it's only recently that they're getting noticed. There is a collaboration with none other than Justin K. Broadrick (GODFLESH, JESU) on one of the songs and there's even a special saxophone guest appearance by Bruce Lamont (YAKUZA, CORRECTION'S HOUSE) on the title track. METAL INJECTION premiered one of the more atmospheric tracks (with a wicked twist) exclusively HERE.
METAL INJECTION PREMIERE
CVLT NATION PREMIERE
NO CLEAN SINGING PREMIERE
THE OBELISK PREMIERE 
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 (India)
For fans of - GODFLESH, JESU, AUTHOR & PUNISHER, 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) 
6. Cloak of Skies (8:11) (Ft. Bruce Lamont of YAKUZA, CORRECTIONS HOUSE)
7. Pool of Failure (Remix by Justin K. Broadrick of GODFLESH, JESU remix) (6:29)
Line up: 
Paul Gillis (Honkey Head) - Vocals, synths, samples, fx

THY WORSHIPER: Reissuing Iconic Polish Black Metal Album “POPIÓŁ” : Arachnophobia Records are pleased to announce that the remaster of Thy Worshiper’s debut album, Popiół, is going to be released on 25 April 2017. Pre-orders are available via the record label’s webstore.
In order to understand the popularity of Polish black metal, one cannot just look back at albums from the last decade. Its history dates back to over 20 years ago. Popiół (Introibo ad altare Dei), originally released in 1997, along with Behemoth’s Grom, Lux Occulta’s Forever Alone. Immortal, Sacrilegium’s Wicher and many others added to the richness and uniqueness of the Polish black metal scene.
Comprising of the melancholic Polish spirit and rebellion against Christianity, Popiół’s distinctiveness is in its mature songwriting, which perfectly resists the destructive nature of time. To this day, tracks from Popiół are among the fans’ favourite.
The upcoming reissue was remastered by Haldor Grunberg at Satanic Audio and consists of a refreshed design. The band’s latest studio effort, Klechdy, was released in 2016, also via Arachnophobia Records.

ABKEHR - IN ASCHE 
German black metal duo prepare incredible debut release - track unveiled at CVLT Nation. Abkehr play black metal the old, bloody way. Their debut LP is the first breath into this world of a swelling and pulsating black metal shadow-feeding frenzy. The recluse Northern Germany-based duo creates ominous and ravaging songs that explore the many manifestations of darkness, hopelessness, evil, and annihilation - condensing them into heathen sonic form to distill their very own expression of actual hell. Hideously and relentlessly crawling across four vast movements of pure incarnated darkness, Abkehr's In Asche is a towering and commanding work in the current underground black metal panorama, which has managed to harness the primordial savagery of bands like Craft and Judas Iscariot, the vast and enveloping hopelessness of bands like Weakling, Ash Borer and Walknut, and the visionary wretchedness of brilliant black metal anomalies like Twilight and Leviathan, to create their own personal passageway into a tormented and shadow-torn world.
CVLT Nation is now streaming II -  the first track unveiled from the release - you can check out the song and their feature

KEMEROV - "FMKD"
Record Label: Vault Relics
Genre: Death 'n' Roll
Release Date: January 31st, 2017
Kemerov are from Serres, Greece and they are the brainchild of two guys (Matt & Giorgos) that grew up with ‘90s old-school deathmetal and Black Sabbath beliefs, but they could never really choose between the metal sound and the rock n’roll feeling. Giving in to these schizophrenical tendencies, and inspired by bands like Entombed, Cathedral and Turbonegro (among others), they decided to put everything in the mix. They started off in 2013 with guitar, voice and occasionally bass and drums, as finding skilled and reliable musicians is not the easiest thing, especially in a small Greek city. They didn’t give up though, they kept writing music and rehearsing with the help of temporary drummers and bass players. In the autumn of 2014, Tasos joined the band in drums and, some months later, his brother Spiros took on the bass duties. This was the first ever full Kemerov line-up which still lasts to this day. From then on, everything took its course. Kemerov self-released their self-titled 4-track EP in November 2015, which received positive reviews from all over the world. They didn’t stop there; they never missed an opportunity to play live, and so far they have supported historic bands like Sodom, Rotting Christ, Septicflesh and Jucifer with great success.
Kemerov released their debut full-length album “FMKD” on 31 January 2017 through Vault Relics.
Line up:
Matt Karampalios – voice
Giorgos Tsapkinis – guitar
Spiros Diamantidis – bass
Tasos Diamantidis – drums

SHOW OF BEDLAM - TRANSFIGURATION 
Canadian avantgarde doom metal destroyers unveil mind-shattering second album - track streaming at CVLT Nation.
Dear Friends in the Press and Media World Wide -  we're happy to present you with the imminent release of Transfiguration, the colossal second album by Montreal, Quebec-based avant-doom band SHOW OF BEDLAM.
Named after the infamous St. Mary of Bethlehem insane asylum in London, and Hailing from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Show of Bedlam play an ominous, psychotic, and crazed blend of doom metal, sludge, noise rock, post-punk, no-wave, goth, and industrial - stitching together a sonic palette of unbelievable evocative force and of sublime destructive prowess. With an insane and sprawling plethora of musical influences ranging from Swans, Godflesh, Sonic Youth, Babes in Toyland, Lydia Lunch, Melvins, and Burning Witch, to Butthole Surfers, Christian Death, The Cure, Bauhaus, Neurosis and beyond, and with cryptic and harrowing  lyrics dealing with subject matter related to mental illness, hospitals, shame, alienation, and mankind’s fate, Show of Bedlam have birthed something monstrous and unforgiving that is at times beautiful, at times hideously ugly, delicate, intimate and terribly wretched at the same time. A true experimental doom colossus for fans of Anatomy of Habit, Indian, Lord Mantis, Swans, Bodychoke, Diamanda Galas, Made Out of Babies, Battle of Mice, and mid-career Neurosis.
CVLT Nation is now premiering the first track extrapolated from the release - the colossal song Tælus and the feature and stream can be checked out

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.

'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.
Track list: 
1. Matsya - The Fish

SERPENTSHRINE"BESETTING THE ALTAR"
Hi! Today I'm bringing you the album "Besetting the Alta" from US black/death metallers Serpentshrine. This is a January release so if you're OK in working with older releases, please consider this album to be reviewed on your publications.
Genre:
Black/Death Metal
Line Up:
Connor Randlett – Guitar, Backing Vocals
Bryan Bosch – Bass, Lead Vocals
BS – Drums (studio)
Date the album was first released: January 11, 2017
Record label: Independent/Unsigned (Digitally Distributed by Sepulchral Silence)
Born in 2015 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA, by founding members Connor Randlett and Bryan Bosch, Serpentshrine was created with the hopes of blending melodic, minor harmonies with the rawness of black metal.  The addition of high pitched vocals, atmospheric compositions, and death metal intensity bred a unique sound unlike others.  Their debut album Besetting the Altar, was released in January 2017, but this is only the beginning, with material and concepts for future albums already in the works.  Serpentshrine is poised to push the boundaries of genre-defining music.

NORTHERN CROWN released THE OTHERS digitally on October 14, 2016. Stream it in its entirety at http://music.northerncrownband.com/album/the-others
Main songwriter and guitarist Zachary Randall notes that "this is easily the most personal art I've ever created, both musically and lyrically." The care and attention to detail have refined the songs, creating real character and vision. NORTHERN CROWN is the sound of realization and reaction, with a touch of smoke and mirrors. Equal parts austere and ostentatious, but heavy all the way through.
Vocalist/guitarist Frank Serafine notes, "we know what we're good at now, and focused more on bringing out those performances from each other." The long-running title track, recalling a quote from philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, is sure to be another enthralling critical favorite.
Serafine summons a heady blend of his influences, such as Ronnie James Dio, Rob Halford, Roy Khan, and Jorn Lande, for his performance. Former NORTHERN CROWN founding member Leona Hayward returns to the fold, rounding out the rhythm section with a heavy Steve Harris/Geezer Butler-inspired attack. Drummer Josh Brown is guided by the rule of elegant simplicity in his stylings and momentum. Guest performers on The Others also include NIGHTFALL/DARK HOUND guitarist Evan Hensley and organs by Vincent Perez.
In the early days, the book of heavy metal was imbued with mystical properties by the genre of doom metal. Through fuzz and oppressive soundscapes, the chapters were expertly written into spells that conjured visions of both bombast and bleakness. As modern torchbearers in the dark halls of heavy metal, NORTHERN CROWN pays homage to doom bands past but doesn't let the old ways define it entirely.
"...Doom, specifically, is about alienation," lead songwriter/guitarist Zachary Randall explains. Breaking off from previous paths is usually the route of alienation, but NORTHERN CROWN sets its sights on gaining followers in making a new path. Through several years of refinement, the band has managed to unfurl a velvet fog through the halls of heavy metal.
The band's first release, 2014's In The Hands of The Betrayer, features five intense pieces ranging from four to twelve minutes in length. Covering the emotions of retribution, shock, outrage, and despair, the EP is full of twists and turns. The lengthy closer "To Thee I Give an Orchid" delivers the modus operandi of the band, earning special recognition in each review.

SEIDE -"BEYOND THE FALLACY"  Black Metal (France)
For fans of Infestus, Shining, Koldbrann...
Seide gives rise to its second album, Beyond The Fallacy, whose black metal expresses the terror visions of a sobered spirit : a gospel of decline and rubble.
Following the oppressive Dogma demo (2009), Seide has built up a singular and destructive identity with its first album Here Is No Truth released in 2011. The spiral fed by violence, relinquishment and dogmas rejection, developed by the French band since its beginnings, is reflected in Beyond The Fallacy's unique character. Seide’s various facets totally merge within Beyond The Fallacy's nihilistic and crepuscular landscape. According to the French press, Seide “is a typical french Black Metal band but still totally apart.“ Beyond The Fallacy counts as well on the exceptional participations of Rune Eriksen aka Blasphemer (Aura Noir, ex-Mayhem) and Niklas Kvarforth (Shining).
Faisant suite à une démo oppressante Dogma (2009), Seide s'est forgé une identité singulière et destructrice avec son premier album Here Is No Truth en 2011. La spirale nourrie de violence, d'abandon de soi et de rejet des dogmes, développée par la formation française depuis ses débuts, se retrouve dans le caractère unique de Beyond The Fallacy. Les différentes facettes de Seide se fondent dans le décor nihiliste et crépusculaire de Beyond The Fallacy. Selon la presse française, Seide est “à la fois un groupe de Black metal typique de chez nous et en même temps complètement à part." Beyond The Fallacy compte aussi sur les participations exceptionnelles de Rune Eriksen aka Blasphemer (Aura Noir, ex-Mayhem) et Niklas Kvarforth (Shining).

Würde der Tod feiern gehen, würde er es im Norden tun,denn irgendwo aus der Nähe von Osnabrück schiebt sich eine gewaltige Soundlawine durch die Szene: AND THERE WILL BE BLOOD [ATWBB]! Majestätisch kombiniert das
Quintett modernen Metal, Core und Death zu einem brachialen Sound mit sympathischer Authentizität und musikalischem Fingerspitzengefühl.
Am 09.06.20176 (VÖ) veröffentlicht Deafground Records mit 'OBITUS' das Debüt dieser niedersächsischen Urgewalt.
'OBITUS' (Lat. Tod, Untergang) ist nicht nur Titel, sondern auch Programm des Albums: Düster und schwer,energiegeladen und kraftvoll - eine zehn Songs lange Dampfwalze, einzig konstruiert, um die Adjektive 'heavy' und 'groovy' in Einklang zu bringen! Mächtige Shouts statt Gesang, höllisch mitreißender Groove auf den Drums, zwei epische Gitarren und ein unfassbar tighter Bass: Diese Lawine verschont keine Frequenz und zwingt
auch die letzten Nackenhaare in den Rhythmus.
Beste Grüße Eure Annelen

BELTEZ haben sie sich, fernab kritischer Szenestimmen, die Zeit und künstlerische Freiheit genommen, um zu wachsen und zu reifen. Das Ergebnis ist ein melodisches Black Metal Album, dessen Einflüsse aus Death Metal und Post Metal unverkennbar sind und die fünf Songs zu einem musikalischen Statement der Extraklasse machen. Phänomenal produziert, besticht die Platte durch ihre Intensität, Raserei und Atmosphäre, dabei weckt sie Erinnerung an WOLVES IN THE  THRONE ROOMs grandioses ,,Two Hunters". "Ein majestätisches Statement einer Band, die weiß was sie will: Alles zermalmende Intensität" (Johan von TERZIJ DE HORDE)

MIND MOLD: Canadian Avantgarde Black/Doom Crushers Prepare Debut Release - Track Streaming At Decibel Magazine. We are extremely excited to announce and present you the debut self-titled EP by Canadian avant-garde dissonance black-doom machine  MIND MOLD. Decibel Magazine is now streaming Antipath - a song extrapolated from Mind Mold’s debut EP which we will release on April 28 2017 digitally and on cassette - you can check out their stream/feature HERE. Decibel have described Mind Mold as a band that “sounds like a mash-up between Gorguts and Deathspell Omega if someone chopped and screwed parts of the song at random”, and that their music is “so off-kilter you'll wonder how the band plays it without tipping over - and before it's over they manage to add in a dour melody line that tries to make you forget you were on the verge of retching misery just a minute ago”.
Keep reading and listen for your self, and you will soon realize how this could be...
Spawned by the minds of Calgary, Alberta-based musicians Robert LaChance (guitarist of Canadian dark grind devastators WAKE), Will Bjorndahl, and Ryan Kennedy (of Calgary-based avantgarde grind anomaly Seminary), Mind Mold’s debut self-titled EP is a morbid study, excavation, and rupturing re-incarnation of 90’s noise rock, shoegaze, hardcore, and experimental metal, embodied as five tracks of mind-shattering and flesh-ravaging blackened doom - plagued by oozing striations of noise rock, industrial, and the darkest strains of hardcore. A dark and hopeless descent into total crush depth where the aesthetics and primordial intents of bands like Neurosis, Red Harvest, Blut Aus Nord, Today Is The Day, Rorschach, Jesu/Godflesh, and Swans coexist in majestic and torturous harmony, incarnated through a surreal and suffocating kaleidoscope of sound made of haunting atmospheres, puzzling and mind-crushing guitar harmonies, blood-chilling screams, pulsating baselines, and pulverizing drums. Look out for more streams to hit the airwaves soon - pre-order for tapes and digital products are now available from our
 Bandcamp  and or store .

Romanian Funeral Doom Metal ensemble DESCEND INTO DESPAIR will release their second studio album, SYNAPTIC VEIL, via Loud Rage Music this Summer. Synaptic Veil follows and certainly tops in quality the band's 2014 full-length, Bearer of All Storms, which received praises from critics all over the World: 6 out of 6 in Eternal Terror, 8 out of 10 in Metal Storm, Metal Kaoz and Metal Forces, plus many similar others in zines like Lords of Metal, Wonderbox, Sea of Tranquillity or Metal Bulletin. 
Here's what the band had to say about their latest effort, Synaptic Veil: "our latest effort to date, is also our most articulate endeavour so far. The veil here is ambiguous and double-sided: “objective” reality imposes a layer of limitations onto our mental landscape; but our inner, “subjective” reality lays a veil of concepts on top of the physical reality as a coping mechanism."
A teaser that prefaces the release of the new album is now online here:

NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS SARKOM REVEAL VIDEO AHEAD OF SPECIAL SHOW FOR INFERNO FESTIVAL APPEARANCE :  Norwegian Black Metallers SARKOM, whose fourth full-length album "ANTI-COSMIC ART"  was released on Dark Essence Records at the end of last year, have today revealed a video of a track from the album.  Produced and directed by Andreas Luggen Martinussen , Edited by Kolbjørn Voll Hjelmerud and with music and lyrics by SARKOM founder and frontman E. Unsgaard, the video for the track "Seen through the eyes of a pedophile priest" can be seen on YouTube at https://youtu.be/fBsh5tKBrhg 
Dealing, without a doubt,  about a controversial subject, Unsgaard had this to say about the track itself and the video: "I got the idea for this song after seeing the documentary "Deliver Us From Evil".  Pedophilia is something most people despise and don't want to talk about, but it's a deadly serious theme as these predators actually live amongst us.  I did some research and the lyrics are based on how I would interpret the mind and thoughts of a pedophile.  As for the video itself, it turned out pretty much as I had envisioned it, and I am very satisfied with the result.  More so because it gave us the chance to work with a professional team with extensive experience gained in TV production.  They also seemed to enjoy doing something different, as working on this kind of music/video project was something new to them.  I mean, the last TV production they worked on was "Paradise Hotel"...
SARKOM is set to appear at Inferno Festival in Oslo for the Dark Essence Label night which will take place at Blå on Wednesday 12th April.  For their appearance the band will  play a special set which will include songs that have rarely, or never, been played live.  Additionally, the set will feature a guest appearance from BEASTCRAFT's Sorath Northgrove.
Other Dark Essence Records bands scheduled for the event are SLEGEST, HAIL SPIRIT NOIR and SULPHUR.
SARKOM will also be appearing at the Dark Easter Metal Meeting in Munich, Germany, on the 15th April.
More information about SARKOM can be found on the band’s Facebook page at

LUNARSEA  join Rock On Agency's family. We're happy to announce that the Italian Death Metal band, on the metal scene since 2003, chose ROCK ON AGENCY for promotion and booking.Lunarsea arose from the ashes of the power-prog band Hollowearth. So, the evolution is the moniker, in the sound and men too.
First full-lenght, "Hydrodynamic Wave", came out in 2006:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuxCXfugI4Y   (FULL ALBUM)
Over the years the band refines the technique, exploring the boundaries of a more melodic death metal due to a more acquired maturity.
Concerts, Festivals and even personal events mark the soul of the band
In 2013 Lunarsea release the third album "Hundred Light Years" and now the band is ready to explore new horizons.

Legendary Swedish Death Metallers SARCASM have released the official video for "Scars of a Land Forgotten," a track from forthcoming Dark Descent album WITHIN THE SPHERE OF ETHEREAL MINDS. Death awaits at  https://youtu.be/tTz1tjMQ-R4
Within the Sphere of Ethereal Minds will be released April 28 on Dark Descent Records. Pre-order it at  this location .
Just can't get enough? Check out the Decibel premiere of '"Silent Waves Summoned Your Inner Being" at  this location . And a lyric video for "In The Grip of Awakening Times" is available at here.
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.

SOMNIUM NOX from Australia play atmospheric black metal with didgeridoos and exude a dark, mesmerizing effect. NEW NOISE MAGAZINE (US) premiered the second epic song from their latest full length  HERE .
NEW NOISE MAGAZINE PREMIERE
NO CLEAN SINGING PREMIERE
SOMNIUM NOX (Australia) - 'TERRA INANIS'
LP / CD / Box Set / Digital
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

Finnish metal group NOUMENA releases new album “MYRRYS” in April, new song out now. Finnish metal group Noumena will release their fifth studio album ”Myrrys” on the 28th of April. The album is a strong follower to Noumena’s previous album ”Death Walks With Me” released four years ago.
As an appetizer, Noumena serves a single track “Metsän viha” in digital services and as a lyric video in YouTube:  https://youtu.be/_VCRVqhCzSs
- Metsän viha is an upbeat opening track of the album, which is a great choice as a single as well.  The song combines catchy melodies, badass riffs, overwhelming drumming and Andy’s and Suvi’s merciless growls. Lyrics deal with the humanity’s ability to destroy everything vital and dear, comments guitarist Tuukka Tuomela, who has composed the song.
The album is an eloquent combination of 90’s style melodic death metal and melancholic Finnish mollie tunes. The album is mixed and mastered by the metal visionary Dan Swanö, who has ensured wide and dynamic sounds. “Myrrys” offers a musical journey all the way from catchy upbeat moments to sturdy and desolate emotions.
With melodies, riffs, sounds and lyrics, “Myrrys” paints a picture of a mindscape filled with contradictions and Northern despair. The album title “Myrrys” (old Finnish) refers to ruckus, tumult or uproar. So far, Noumena has sticked to English as lyrical language, but the album themes, including Finnish nature and cultural heritage, and intimate stories required the use of Finnish. Every band member has contributed to songwriting, and the formidable cover art is crafted by Finnish young talent Otto Lehtonen.
“Myrrys” is Noumena’s second album with vocalist Suvi Uura, who contrasts and balances skillfully Antti Haapanen’s growls with her deep voice. Uura joined Noumena in 2009 and the rest of the band are original members in the band turning 20 years in 2018.
On the album release day (28.04.2017) Noumena will also release their next official music video directed by Jyrki Murtomäki.
“Myrrys” is released by Haunted Zoo Productions, which is an independent record label established by Noumena members. Distribution by Playground Music and Inverse Records. Released in Russia by FONO under the license from Haunted Zoo Productions. Album is released in CD/LP/DIGI.
Noumena are: 
Antti Haapanen - growls
Suvi Uura - clean vocals, growls, piano
Ville Lamminaho - guitars, mandolin
Tuukka Tuomela - guitars
Hannu Savolainen - bass
Ilkka Unnbom - drums

DOCTOR CYCLOPS-“LOCAL DOGS”  is finally out!! get your copy here    http://www.heavypsychsounds.com/shop.htm#HPS050
Local Dogs is an explosive mixture of seventies heavy rock, New Wave of British Heavy Metal and obscure doomy sabbath-style stuff ready to take you back to the spirit of a different era. Groovy riffs and gloomy paths coming straight from the woods give you the impression that the epic saga of the Seventies ended up in something different than a fleeting reflection of the past. If you like the early Deep Purple groove, try to imagine it mixed with the bluesy Graveyard mood played by Cathedral jamming on Budgie's tunes in Witchfinder General's practice room: then you should be close to realize the spirit and the power of this record. In this contest the featuring of Bill Steer (Carcass, Firebird, Gentlemans Pistols) on lead guitar just tastes like the cherry on top of a tempting cake.

Drawing accolades from such iconic figures as Robert Plant and Rob Halford upon its release, CLOVEN HOOF’s essential self-titled debut album has been out of print and unavailable on vinyl since its initial release in 1984.
Wax Maniax are proud to bring this cult metal crusher back to vinyl, meticulously re-mastered and packaged with the original jacket artwork plus a bonus full color insert featuring several previously unpublished photos from the original album shoot and lyrics and extensive liner notes from bassist and founding member, Lee Payne. The exclusive “HORDES OF HELLFIRE” variant will be available on red and yellow colored vinyl and includes a bonus 7” featuring two previously unreleased recordings and is limited to 250 copies and available exclusively from waxmaniax.com beginning April 11th.
They are the black metal gods - V E N O fucking M! For the first time ever on vinyl, Wax Maniax proudly presents this essential collection of demos, unreleased studio tracks, out-takes, alternate mixes and radio cues from NWOBHM / speed / black metal pioneers VENOM, recorded during the band’s glory years of 1980-1985. Originally compiled and planned for release by Neat Records in the late 80’s, Skeletons In the Closet was shelved for several years and eventually released in 1993 by Castle Communications and on CD only. This first ever vinyl release for the title has been lavishly packaged in a full color double gatefold LP jacket featuring rare photos and clippings plus an insert with track by track reflections from guitarist Mantas and drummer Abaddon.

Turkish black metallers ZIFIR have signed with norwegian label Duplicate Records and announced that their third full-length, “KINGDOM OF NOTHIGNESS”, will be released in late spring / early summer of 2017, both in CD and LP format. Artwork was created by russian artist Vergvoktre.
 ZIFIR have existed for more than a decade in the far confines of the underground, releasing two full-lengths and one split album with Cult Of Erinyes. Now, with their third album ready to be unleashed via Duplicate Records, the turkish two-piece have crafted a unique piece of darkness. 
Skillfully blending eastern and scandinavian influences into their very own sound, ZIFIR evoke haunting imagery within the listeners mind. Having carefully honed their craftmanship over the years, they have effortlessly created an album that is diverse without losing its sense of direction. 
The occasional sacral chanting adds a unique flavour whilst the organic production lends the album a timeless quality. 
As opposed to the standard «hail Satan» perspective, lyrically "Kingdom Of Nothingness" is a condemnation of all manmade religion, seen from a turkish view. Several songs, like album highlight "769", deal with actual events, or rather horrors that took place in the name of religion. 
With "Kingdom Of Nothingness", ZIFIR deliver one of the truly stand-out black metal releases of 2017. The beast has awoken.

NORSE (Australia) - 'THE DIVINE LIGHT OF A NEW SUN'
LP / CD / Digital (May 25th, 2017)
Genre - Dissonant Black Metal

Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For Fans of - DEATHSPELL OMEGA, BLUT AUS NORD, THORNS, early ENSLAVED, BOLZER, BEHEMOTH, ABBATH, IMMORTAL
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.
Track list: 
1. Supreme Vertical Ascent 
2. Drowned By Hope 
3. Telum Vitae 
4. The Divine Light Of A New Sun

With less than two weeks remaining before the release of their second full-length, CRAVEN IDOL has unleashed another track from THE SHACKLES OF MAMMON.  Teaming with German site Deaf Forever, the band recently launched the premiere of "The Trudge." Another example of the unabashedly old-school and ruthless blackened thrash that is Craven Idol, "The Trudge" is a song best played at ear-piercing (and pain-inducing) volumes. 
The Shackles of Mammon will be released April 14 on LP, CD, and MC via Dark Descent Records.

Indian black metal stalwarts HEATHEN BEAST announced their comeback recently with the following statement -"Sometimes there are things in life which you cannot just let pass. Sometimes you have to speak up and not be a silent spectator. We once hinted at doing a grindcore EP and there was no better time to do it than now, the very essence of the music and the subject are synonymous. While this isn't 'pure' grindcore and it's the essence of the genre that we took and blended it with our own style."
This is in reference to the shocking 'demonetization' move by the new government here. It basically put ALL 500 and 1000 Rupee notes out of commission overnight and brought the nation to a complete standstill. Poor people were affected the most as they didn't have bank accounts or credit cards and had to rely on cash payments only. DECIBEL MAGAZINE premiered the first song off the new album with an excellent write up 
HERE
HEATHEN BEAST (India) - '$CAM'
Box Set / Digital
Genre - Blackened Grindcore
Release Date - June 1st, 2017
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity India (sub-label)
For Fans of - RUDRA, DEMONIC RESURRECTION, GORGOROTH, NAPALM DEATH, BRUTAL TRUTH, NASUM, BEHEMOTH
HEATHEN BEAST, the undercover band from India that's speaking up against the unfair practices of the government, are back from hibernation to release a blackened slab of grindcore. Their improved direction allows them to express their issues in a more effective manner. '$cam' is about the horrifying overnight discontinuation of 90% of the currency notes in circulation around the country, thus effectively bringing the activities, especially of the poor people who don't even have bank accounts, to a grinding halt. Here's an undiluted and venomous take on this whole biased decision that is apparently favouring the rich but leaving the poor people in deep trouble. For better or worse, this unprecedented demonetization move by the government in power has sparked a massive outrage and here's HEATHEN BEAST releasing a scathing album about it in timely fashion.
Track list: 
1. Surgical Strike (De-modi-tisation)
2. It's Only A Minor Inconvenience 
3. Fuck Poor People, I Have Paytm
4. Reliance Is The Secret Of My Energy, Jio Mere Lal!

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, DEMOLITION HAMMER
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
7. Bloodstock
8. Under my Skin
9. Satanas

Comatose Music has recently signed a deal North Carolina brutal death metal trio CRANIAL BLEEDING. Spawned in late 2015, Cranial Bleeding began as a two man project with Justin (Vituperate) on vocals and Blake (Putrefying Cadaverment / ex-Abhorrent Deformity) on guitar. After releasing a three song demo (with programmed drums) in early 2016, they soon recruited Matt (Abhorrent Deformity / ex-Kraanium) on drums and recorded a follow up demo that caught the attention of Comatose Music.
Cranial Bleeding is currently writing for their upcoming debut album, VILE FORMATIONS OF PUTRIDITY that is slated to be released in late 2017. Brace yourself for a murderous campaign of unforgiving torture complete with abusive riffs, relentless drums and a septic guttural vocal attack. Fans of Disgorge, Defeated Sanity and Gorgasm take notice.

FUNERALIUM from France are one of a kind. Their doom has a weird, torturous quality to it. Musically, it's almost like the merging of the funeral doom style with the depressive suicidal black metal one. But they're able to pull it off with conviction. METAL INJECTION premiered one of their songs exclusively  HERE
FUNERALIUM (France) - 'OF THROES AND BLIGHT' 
Genre - Doom Metal
Release Date - April 12th, 2017
Record Label - Weird Truth Productions (Japan)
For fans of - ATARAXIE, WORSHIP, MOURNFUL CONGREGATION, HYPONIC, SHINING, XASTHUR
FUNERALIUM have come a long way and have virtually redefined this style. They've taken their death/doom-based music and merged it with influences from the funeral doom and even DSBM style to create a powerful expression that outlasts all notions of relevance. Just when it's perceived that some of the individual styles have reached their peak, FUNERALIUM turn the sound on its head so to speak and create evocative music without diminishing any of the essence. They take the best qualities and add their personal reflections of trauma and suffering to it, making it a difficult album to listen to but one that will prove to be a very rewarding one ultimately. Their expression of sorrowful and dark doom metal music is singular and deep. Fans of this style of music won't find a better album all year to wallow in. 
Track list: 
1. Slowly We Crawl Towards Crumb 
2. Spit At My Face, I Will Pluck Your Tongue Out
3. Vermin
4. Vanishing Once And For All

WOLFKHAN: “CYBERNECRO SPIRITUALS” Debut Album Out this Month .An album consisting of bizarre nine stories stemming from mental trash and dark corners of odd fantasy. That’s one way of describing Wolfkhan’s debut full-length, Cyber Necro Spirituals, which is due on 25 April 2017 via  Arachnophobia Records
Watch the album trailer:  https://youtu.be/d-geefJxP5I
Wolfkhan is a rather unknown name. The project’s history, however, dates back to the early 90s
Mainman Marcin Gąsiorowski, also known as the leader of Thy Worshiper, comments: "Wolfkhan has come into being after Thy Worshiper's demo “Tym z krainy cieni” (“To those from the shadow realm”). Somehow, I've always had some other ideas which I thought were worth recording. This is when we released the first demo. The second one saw the light of day after Thy Worshiper album “Signum” had been unleashed. You can still watch the video for the single “El Diablo” on YouTube. I have always cooperated on subsequent Wolfkhan's releases with Thy Worshiper guitar players. Recently, I felt the creative call when we had come back with “Czarna dzika czerwień” record. There was something I needed to get out of my system."
To many, a soon-to-be-unleashed debut album will be the first exposure to Wolfkhan. Thy Worshiper's longtime guitarist Dariusz Kubala, as well as the band’s past and present female vocalists have contributed to the material. However, when compared to last year's highly acclaimed Klechdy record, the contents of Cyber Necro Spirituals are more like an audial acid trip. Absurd and black humour meet post-apocalyptic, industrial notes.
“I didn't have a direction. The whole thing just came out by itself. One inspiration which possibly affected the way this record is like was the reading experience of the “Black Oceans” novel by Jacek Dukaj" – explains Wolfkhan's founder.
What to expect of Cyber Necro Spirituals? Well, you can definitely cross boredom out of your list with titles such as “Pożeracz serc” (“Hearts' Devourer”), “Głosy spod chodnika” (“Voices from Beneath the Pavement”) and “Ballada o twardym chuju” (“Ballad of a Hard Dick”).

Am 21. April 2017 melden sich PROFANITY endlich mit einem neuen Album zurück. Dabei ist der Titel „THE ART OF SICKNESS“ durchaus wörtlich zu nehmen, denn der Spielwitz und die technische Brillanz des neuen Materials sind der perfekte Mittelweg zwischen Kunst und geisteskrankem Chaos. Aufgenommen in den Iguana Studios (Spheron, Imperium Dekadenz, Necrophagist u.v.a.) mit Produzent Christoph Brandes entstand ein Album, das jeden Tech Death Gourmet an den Tisch rufen wird. Um nichts anbrennen zu lassen, hat die Band sich zusätzlich illustre Unterstützung bei Terrance Hobbs (Suffocation), Adrie Kloosterwaard (Sinister), Ricky Myers (Disgorge, Suffocation), Christian Münzner (Alkaloid, ex-Obscura) und ex-Basser Martl Bauer geholt. Dazu stammt das Artwork von Pär Olofsson, der bereits Alben von Exodus, Unleashed, Malevolent Creation u.v.a. das Gesicht gab.
Am 19. Mai 2017 kehren SOUL DEMISE mit ihrem neuen Album „THIN RED LINE“ zurück. Um einen ersten Einblick in das neue Material zu bekommen, gibt es ab heute den Song „Deceive The Masses“ auf die Ohren. Eingeleitet durch eine ruhige Akustikgitarre, verwandelt sich der Song schnell in ein wahres Melodic Death Metal Inferno. Der perfekte Beweis dafür, dass diese Band hungriger denn je ist. Sofort reinhören!
MAGENTA HARVEST unterschreiben bei Apostasy Records Wenn ein Gedanke so ansteckend ist, dass aus einem Zwei-Mann-Projekt eine vollständige Band wird, muss er sehr infektiös sein!
Die aus dem finnischen Pietarsaari stammenden Magenta Harvest starteten als die Idee von Drummer Janne Manninen und Gitarrist Timo Kontio. Über die Jahre hat sich die Band zum Quintett ausgeweitet und mit „Volatile Waters“ aus dem Jahre 2014 ein beachtenswertes Death Metal Album vorgelegt.
Erst kürzlich hat die Band bei der renommierten Booking-Agentur Dragon Productions angedockt und heute dürfen wir bekannt geben, dass ihr neues Album bei Apostasy Records erscheinen wird. Nähere Infos in Kürze!

STREAMS OF BLOOD – “ ALLGEGENWÄRTIG”
Am 25.02.2017 erscheint das neue STREAMS OF BLOOD Album "Allgegenwärtig".Auf ihrem dritten Album bleiben SoB ihren musikalischen Idealen treu, aber wachsen: Sie fusionieren musikalische Abgründe rasend-brutaler, epischer Blasthymnen mit mal trance-like, oft groovenden Atmosphäre-Orgien aus vernichtenden Riffs und kalt-herzigen, distanzierten Vocals. "Allgegenwärtig" dreht sich um das Allgegenwärtige, dass die Band umgibt, und die widersprüchlichen Erkenntnisse die sie erlangen. Um Leben und Tod, Licht und Dunkeltheit, Exzess und Spiritualität. Es sind SoBs innere Stimmen, tosend aus dem Abgrund der Seelen, genährt vom Chaos der Welten.

I´LL BE DAMNED - Debütalbum „I´ll Be Damned“ erscheint am 19.05.2017 / erstes Video online! Nach sechs Jahren und zahllosen großen (u.a. als Support von METALLICA in Kopenhagen oder für D-A-D in Aarhus) wie kleinen Konzerten machen sich die Dänen I´LL BE DAMNED daran, ihre erste internationale Offensive in der sündigen Welt des Rock'n'Roll zu entfesseln, von Death Metal über Alternative bis zu geradlinigem Rock ist alles dabei. „Unsere ersten Ankerpunkte als Band waren Monster Magnet, Entombed, Transport League und D-A-D”, verrät Gitarrist Kristian Sloth.
 I´LL BE DAMNED sind eine Waffe mit scharfer Klinge, eine Band, die die Grundwerte des Rock'n'Rolls kompromisslos lebt und schlagkräftig zum Ausdruck bringt. “Rock'n'Roll ist Rebellenmusik fürs Volk! Es geht darum, dem Establishment mit der Faust zu drohen und zu rufen: Fuck you I won't do what you tell me!” Aber: I´LL BE DAMNED sind alles andere als Kopisten in Lederjacken und Sonnenbrillen, die bei weitem zu viel Pomade verwenden und wie eine billiger Abklatsch von Buddy Holly klingen. Sie sind ein Haufen leidenschaftlicher Maniacs mit einer Vorliebe für Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Groove und Blues Rock, die ihr Herz gerecht zwischen den überlebensgroßen Melodien von Volbeat, dem fiebrigen Groove von Clutch, dem dumpfen Hämmern von Kvelertak und der Chuzpe der Barthelden von ZZ Top aufteilen. Fügt man zu alledem noch den Segen des Riff-Gottes persönlich und eine ordentliche Prise Humor hinzu, bekommt man zumindest ein vages Bild von dem, was I´LL BE DAMNED vorhaben. “Humor ist unsere kugelsichere Weste, ohne die in dieser Welt gar nichts geht”, bekräftigt Kristian und fügt lachend an: “Andererseits müssten wir wohl Black Metal spielen.”
Allein die Bühnenpräsenz, das Charisma und die bodenlose Energie des Sängers Stig Gamborg kann man nur mit offenem Mund zu bewundern.
Hier gibt es den ersten Song „Believe It“ in Form eines Lyric-Videos zu bestaunen:
   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mfJGyzBqXo
Jetzt erheben sich I´LL BE DAMNED vom Tresen ihrer geliebten Rock-Bar Escobar in Dänemarks zweitgrößter Stadt Aarhus, um den dänischen Rock'n'Roll als nächste Band ordentlich Schub zu verpassen. Mit der unfiltrierten Durchschlagskraft ihres Erstlings “I'll Be Damned” im Gefolge und einer mörderischen Lust, jede Bühne in Grund und Boden zu trümmern, die sie zu fassen kriegen, fällt das finale Urteil über diese Band so unmissverständlich aus wie das Angebot eines leichten Mädchens in einer dunklen Gasse. Also scheißt doch einfach mal auf diese irre Welt und seid einfach glücklich, wie es in einem ihrer Songs heißt. Gut möglich, dass es das weiseste ist, das ihr heute zu hören bekommen werdet.

Im Juni werden die Bonner Progressive Black Metaller KLABAUTAMANN ihr neues Album "SMARAGD" veröffentlichen. Als ersten hör- und sehbaren Vorgeschmack gibt es jetzt ein Video zum Song "Into Depression". Der außergewöhnliche Clip wurde von COSTIN CHIOREANU erstellt, der bereits das Artwork zu "Smaragd" gestaltet hat.
Der Clip feiert heute exklusiv seine Premiere bei metal.de und Invisible Oranges:
Metal.de:    http://www.metal.de/news/klabautamann-video-premiere-into-depression-228254/
Invsible Oranges:   http://www.invisibleoranges.com/klabautamann-into-depression-video-premiere/
Hier findet ihr außerdem noch Kommentare von der Band und Costin zu diesem außergewöhnlichen Video:
This is one of the few tracks I did the main songwriting for on this record. I actually used the drum-tracks from "Mensch aus Gold" by Ekpyrosis instead of programming demo drums or using a klick track while composing, which was quite enjoyable and inspiring. The Telecaster being my most favourite guitar for years now explains the high amount of clean parts. I never planned for clean vocals though, this is something Tim came up with, and for me it's the icing on the cake! And - of course - the incredible video...
- Florian Toyka, Guitars
Into Depression might not look that depressive at the first sight, but it is the story of a character who is revisiting all his memories, reaching the present at the end, when he is nothing but a ghost in a dead city. Regarding the visuals, the video was made using lots of handmade paintings and drawings and was my personal input to have everything so minimalist-looking. I had enough of blank figurative mask covering everything around me. In plus, I think it fits very well the introspective character of this song.
- Costin Chioreanu, Video
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. Die Spielzeit der insgesamt zehn Songs beträgt 54 Minuten. Hier die Tracklist von "Smaragd":
01. Into Depression
02. My Terrifying Mirror
03. In My Shadow
04. Under Feral Skies
05. As the Snow Melted
06. The Murderers
07. Enemies' Blood

"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.

„David Gehlke legt mit „Systemstörung - Die Geschichte von Noise Records“ eine ebenso umfassende wie unterhaltsame Aufarbeitung der Geschichte eines der einflussreichsten Metal-Plattenlabels der Achtziger vor. Überaus lesenswert!“ - Jens Peters, Rock Hard Magazin
„Mit so illustren und stilprägenden Bands wie Kreator, Helloween, Voivod, Celtic Frost, Rage, Running Wild und natürlich auch meinen Tankard-Jungs waren Noise Records eines der wichtigsten, wenn nicht sogar das wichtigste Heavy-Metal-Label der Achtziger und Neunziger.
Alleine das macht den fetten Schmöker aus der Feder von David E. Gehlke für mich zur absoluten Pflichtlektüre!“ BUFFO SCHNÄDELBACH/TANKARD

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 gerade erschienen 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!
THE CHARM THE FURY sind:
Caroline Westendorp - Vocals
Mathijs Tieken - Drums
Rolf Perdok - Guitars
Martijn Slegtenhorst - Guitars

Hallo Leute, das PARTY SAN FESTIVAL legt nochmal vier neue Bands nach, um euch eurer Lieblingsfestival noch attraktiver zu machen. Wer sein Ticket noch immer nicht hat, wird hier fündig:  www.cudgel.de
Eine der einflussreichsten und beliebtesten Death-Metal-Bands aller Zeiten kehrt auf das Party.San Metal Open Air zurück, um alles in Schutt und Asche zu legen: NILE stehen gleichermaßen für ungezügelte Brutalität und für außergewöhnliches technisches Niveau. Mit acht überwiegend brillanten Alben in der Hinterhand werden Bandleader Karl Sanders und seine Mannen einen grandiosen Auftritt sicherstellen.
Holland, schwarzer Death Metal, bei Invictus Productions unter Vertrag: LUCIFERICON sind Helden von morgen, und ihr könnt die junge Truppe bereits jetzt in Augenschein nehmen! Dunkel, böse und herrlich verschroben.
Eine sogenannte Supergroup macht sich auf den Weg nach Thüringen: At The Gates-Shouter Tomas Lindberg und -Drummer Adrian Erlandsson haben sich mit Bombs of Hades-Gitarrist Jonas Stålhammar, Skitsystem-Gitarrist Fredrik Wallenberg und Disfear-Bassist Andreas Axelsson zu einer neuen Band namens THE LURKING FEAR zusammengeschlossen. Die schwedische Truppe verkündete dazu folgendes: „Mit THE LURKING FEAR rücken wir eine natürliche Seltsamkeit und Horror in den Vordergrund, da unser Death Metal hässlich und bösartig sein soll. Die Riffs sollen tiefen Ekel in der Seele hervorrufen, während sich die Vocals so anhören sollen, als würden Höllenhunde den Mond anheulen.“
Das aus Kolumbien stammende, aber in den USA lebende Black-Metal-Duo zählt zu den gefragtesten Vertretern des amerikanischen Schwarzmetalls und hat bereits in der Vergangenheit den überzeugenden Nachweis erbracht, dass auch zwei Personen die große Festivalbühne vollständig ausfüllen können. Schädel spaltende Riffkanonaden, hämmernde Drumbeats, ein unverwechselbarer knurriger Kratzgesang sowie Black-Metal-Attacken mit Ohrwurmcharakter: INQUISITION zählen zu den absoluten Highlights unseres diesjährigen Billings!

NOCTE OBDUCTA:„TOTHOLZ (EIN RAUNEN AUS DEM KLAMMWALD)“ will be released on May 26th! Das neue Nocte Obducta Album „Totholz (Ein Raunen aus dem Klammwald)“, welches vorab bereits auf Konzerten der Band erhältlich ist, wird am 26. Mai offiziell im Handel erscheinen. Der Nachfolger zum letztjährigen „Mogontiacum (Nachdem die Nacht herabgesunken …)“ wird 7 Songs bei einer Spielzeit von 42 Minuten enthalten und außer auf CD auch in einer limitierten Vinyl Auflage erhältlich sein.
Was sich auf „Mogontiacum“ bereits abgezeichnet hat, findet auf „Totholz (Ein Raunen aus dem Klammwald)“ seine konsequente Fortsetzung: Nocte Obducta schließen den Kreis zu ihren musikalischen Wurzeln und liefern ein rauhes Stück Metal, welches in Verbindung mit den bandtypischen Harmonien nichts seiner Einzigartigkeit einbüßt! Das stimmungsvolle Cover zur Einstimmung gibts schonmal vorab.

Short-Bio:
NOCTURNE startet as a vague idea in the mind of singer ESSARK back in 2006 when he composed first melodies to praise the nightside and its dark gods. After a long search for appropriate allies he finally joined forced with TENEBRIS (ex HELLSAW) in 2012.
In the following year they started together with producer Stefan Traunmüller (RAUHNACHT, GOLDEN DAWN) to arrange and record four songs for their demo 'Nahash' which was unleashed upon mankind in late 2013.
Without any further delay NOCTURNE entered Soundtempel Studio (Freilassing, GER) once again in 2014 where all strings and vocals for the upcoming album were recorded, drums have been nailed at KK-Studios (Salzburg, AUT), engineered by Krystian Koenig.
For NOCTURNE's self-titled debut album nine songs have been produced, featuring a crushing cover of DE INFERNALI's 'Sign Of The Dark' with original vocalist Dan Swanö (NIGHTINGALE, EDGE OF SANITY, PAN.THY.MONIUM, BLOODBATH, etc) on mic.
Debut album mixed by Stefan Traunmüller at Soundtempel Studio (Freilassing, GER) and mastered at NECROMORBUS Studio (Stockholm, SWE) by Tore Stjerna. All artwork was handled by promising young artist Ceethava (GER).
NOCTURNE managed to put together a strong live line up consisting of skilled musicians and is looking forward to spread the nocturnal disease live soon all over Europe.

Genre - Classic Death Metal
Release Date - December 22nd, 2016
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - BOLT THROWER, BENEDICTION, WARLORD UK, URSINNE, PAGANIZER, JOHANSSON & SPECKMANN, ENTOMBED, MASTER, GRAVE, UNLEASHED
New death metal supergroup ECHELON carry on where another supergroup STENCH PRICE left, employing the services of Dave Ingram (HAIL OF BULLETS, ex-BOLT THROWER, ex-BENEDICTION), Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER, DEMIURG, PUTREVORE), Johan Berglund (RIBSPREADER, THE GROTESQUERY), Kjetil Lynghaug (JOHANSSON & SPECKMANN, PAGANIZER) and Travis Ruvo (AKATHARTA, CROPSY MANIAC). Expect death metal that is stupendous, old school and fleshed out, emphasizing on crushing British brutality coupled with classic Swedish melodic sensibilities and riffing power. Care has been taken to ensure that the nostalgic value remains foremost, as the music traverses through many winding yet memorable songs, with impeccable compositions by the riff-master Rogga and probably one of Dave Ingram's finest vocal performances of his career. This is a varied, bombastic album that will go down as one of the strongest albums of this era.

2. The Forbidden Industry

FUNERAL BAPTISM, the Bucharest Black Metal duo that recently took the Romanian Extreme Metal scene by storm with the release of their excellent second EP, GATE, have just reached an agreement with Loud Rage Music regarding the upcoming release of the band’s debut album, scheduled for the second part of this year.
Gate, the band’s second EP and first in a duo line-up, is now available for free streaming and downloading here:  https://loudragemusic.bandcamp.com/album/funeral-baptism-gate , a preview of what the full-length album will have to offer.
Funeral Baptism was formed back in 2014 in Villa Gessel, Argentina by guitarist Damian Batista. The same year, the “Blasphemous Desires” EP is released, showing a straightforward black metal style with an atmospheric twist.
In 2016 the band is relocated to Bucharest, Romania and with the inclusion of new vocalist, Liviu Ustinescu, Funeral Baptism releases their second EP named “Gate” in March 2017.
This new EP introduces a more aggressive style adding a death metal influence yet retaining the atmospheric overtones of the first release.
At the moment the band’s line-up is made of 2 members
Damian (ex-Akral Necrosis) – guitar/bass
Liviu (Din Umbra) – vocals/lyrics

The new album combines elements of death metal, deathcore and not-so-subtle black and dark influences.The music features the band's trademark rapid-fire brutality and is full of blast-beats and heavy breakdowns. Lyrically and conceptually, the album address a variety of topics, reaching from the Hell mythology, fascism and the darkest parts of the human nature.
 Hellmouth was recorded with Simon Hawemann (Sludge Studios, War From A Harlots Mouth) in Berlin and mixed by Christian Schwarz (Schwarzmusik). The mastering was done by Andy Marsh (Thy Art is Murder). The artwork is a collaboration of Robert Borbas (Grindesign) and "Sin Eater".

In 1 month will come out "SEA BLACK" the second album of SINLUST on the label M & O Music. More than an umpteenth Epic Black Metal band, the Bretons pushed the notion of concept album beyond its limits by relating a dark fantasy story, written down by the singer, Firefrost, under the name Nicolas Skinner. The latter gave birth to a novel, "Noire Mer", which will be published - in addition to the album - in June at Nats Editions.
Moreover don't forget that TOMORROW will come out "Arcane Dreams", the first album of ORMSYT. If you have already written the review or planning to do it, please come back to me and let me know.
I know that April and May are full of releases but I hope you will give me a place in your pages !
I wish you a good listening and a good week.

SINLUST "Sea Black”
Epic & Heavy Black Metal. For Fans of Immortal, Gorgoroth, Opeth
We are SINLUST, an epic black metal band located in Brittany (France) and founded in 2008 by Chris In Lust. After many hours of hard work and dedication to our black art, we released our first album, ‘Snow Black', in 2011 (self production). It's a concept album relating a dark fantasy story. This story has been put into writing by our singer, Firefrost, under the pen name Nicolas Skinner. He gave birth to a novel, which was successfully published under the title ‘Noire Neige' (it means ‘Snow Black' in French) by Nats Editions.
Emboldened by some encouraging reviews of ‘Snow Black', we got back to work. In 2015, armed with 8 solid new songs, we headed to Slab Sound studio, probably the most famous metal studio in Brittany. The producer Gwen Kerjan managed to transcend this new musical assault beyond our wildest expectations. This new album, ‘Sea Black', relates the second act of the story started with ‘Snow Black'. Firefrost continued his editorial journey and wrote ‘Noire Mer' to elaborate ‘Sea Black' story. While the album has not been released yet, the book is planned to be published in June 2017, still with Nats Editions. Confident with the impact of ‘Sea Black' songs and the fantastic production of Slab Sound studio, Sinlust decided to call on Above Chaos for the artwork of ‘Sea Black'. The result managed perfectly to illustrate both the epic and dark sides of the album

ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE (Finland) - 'AMONG THE RUINS' 
Genre - Stoner Death Metal
Release Date - April 15th, 2017
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - KHEMMIS, KORPSE, PUNGENT STENCH, AMORPHIS, WARNING, SOLITUDE AETERNUS, WHILE HEAVEN WEPT, CRYPT SERMON, ELECTRIC WIZARD
ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE from Finland are onto something special. Not content with playing either doom or death metal, the band merge influences from both realms so to speak and create a seamless sound where clean singing and growls both have a place. Essentially ALTAR OF BETELGEUZE play stoner doom but with the heaviness and relative structuring of death metal. Long, winding songs that are at once emotive and crushing enthrall the listener for extended periods of time, while you are left wondering about suitable parallels for this unique band. 'Among the Ruins' is a definitive present-day album, when it's no longer about mimicking your idols but taking the sound forward in a logical, sincere manner. 
Track list: 
1. The Offering 
2. Sledge of Stones 
3. No Return 
4. New Dawn 
5. Absence of Light 
6. Advocates of Deception 
7. Among the Ruins
Line up:

Comatose Music has set a June 9 release date for AFTERMATH, the new album from LOGIC OF DENIAL. This is the third album by these Italian miscreants, further expanding the sonic exploration crafted in their previous 2013 effort Atonement with a more diverse, brutal and complex approach. 
The band's evolution can be heard on the premiere of album track "Devouring Seeds of the Apocalypse." The song is now streaming at https://youtu.be/NAJqLVC7Hks
Conceived as a three chapter concept album about the various stages during the grieving process, Aftermath contains twelve vicious tracks which conceptually probe the resentment consistent with the incessant and infamous vilification of human vulnerability. 
This is fast and technical brutal death metal with guttural vocals and superb production.  Aftermath is a "must have" release for 2017!
Album artwork by the mighty Jon Zig.
Track Listing:
1. Abscission
2. Devouring Seeds of the Apocalypse
3. Gorging on Innocence
4. Miroir
5. Sufferance
6. Assenza (The Sufferance Ouverture)
7. Larvae of Eden
8. The Decaying Drama (Pt. I: Quietus - Pt. II: Antinferno)

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.

PLASMODIUM (Australia) - 'ENTHEOGNOSIS'  
Genre - Abstract Black/Death Metal
Release Date - December 29th, 2016
Record Label - Cimmerian Shade Recordings (US)
This is something that will change your notions about the black/death metal spectrum. PLASMODIUM from Australia have found a special space within the ostensible template of black/death metal that has hitherto been unfathomed. Following in the footsteps of their countrymates in PORTAL, PLASMODIUM are changing the way we look at the extreme metal style. Virtually peerless, they are creating an eerie, dissonant expression that's more about the experience than mere catchy riffing and its superficial enjoyment. This is hard to put in words because everything here is out of the ordinary and is as mind-bending as you would allow it to be. This is a unique, individualistic and bold expression and it requires an open mind to be absorbed. 'Entheognosis' is for those who dare and wish to see unpredictable innovation in a genre that's only moving forward. 
Line up: 
Fuath - incantations 
Demoninacht - limbic chaos 
Nocentor - reverberactions 
Aretstikapha - conjurations 
Yen Pox - warp siphonls
Track list: 
1. Limbic Disassociation 
2. Reformoculus 
3. Hermaphrodisiac 
4. Deuteromitosis

SOLITARY -EXPANDING ON THE PAST
The UK thrash masters who have been enjoying rave reviews for their latest album, The Diseased Heart Of Society, have decided to make their two previous studio albums available digitally, in expanded format.
1998s Nothing Changes is now available with the added bonus of the 1996 demo tracks that secured Solitary their first record deal, with Holier Than Thou Records. These demo tracks have never been made available before digitally and only fans who purchased the original demo tape, or took part in the pledge music campaign to support live album I Promise to Thrash Forever will have heard them before. The additional tracks are as follows...
1. A Second Chance (’96 demo version)
2. The Bottom Line (’96 demo version)
3. What Price (’96 demo version)
4. No Reason (’96 demo version)
5. FEAR (’96 demo version)
Meanwhile, 2008s Requiem now comes complete with Solitary’s 2001 Demo, that was recorded to help with the search for a new label and again has never been made available digitally before. Only those who picked up a limited edition copy from a gig back in the day or supported the I Promise To Thrash Forever pledge campaign will have heard these versions before.
1. Spineless (’01 demo version)
2. 15 Years (’01 demo version)
3. I See Nothing (’01 demo version)
4. Relentless (’01 demo version)
Speaking about the decision to make these demos available band founder member and front man Rich Sherrington said :
“We’ve been asked a few times about releasing the demos on CD but we didn’t feel that it was the right thing to do. We’ve always felt that the album versions of the tracks are much stronger, which is main the reason why we haven’t pursued it with the foreign labels who suggested it.  However, we listened again recently and these versions definitely have an energy of their own. Also, the fact that digital platforms allow people to stream or download individual tracks, to us feels like a fair way of getting these recordings out to the people who want to hear them.”
The new digital releases are available now from CD Baby, iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify and all major digital distributors.
In additional news, Solitary have discovered a small batch of the original pressing of the Nothing Changes CD, lurking at the back of a store cupboard. With different cover art from the Casket Music reissue that came out in 2004, these are real collectors’ items and only very limited numbers exist. If you’re quick you can pick one up from the band’s on-line store at  http://www.solitary.org.uk/product/nothing-changes-original-1998-version/
Thanks for all your support! Chris & Paul - IPR

X.KERNEL – FACETHE TRUTH
Label:
Cimmerian Shade Recordings
Release Date: 07.04.17
Genre: Melodic Death Metal
For fans of: Dark Tranquillity | Soilwork | In Flames | Evergrey
The members of X.Kernel first came together in the city of Kiev, in the Ukraine. Initially they were inspired by the sounds of the Gothenburg metal scene – the hard hitting but overtly melodic music of bands like In Flames, Dark Tranquillity and Soilwork – but as their individual talents blossomed and their song writing skills flourished, so did their unique musical identity. While melodic death metal remained the bedrock of their sound, X.Kernel began to expand and develop in new and exciting directions.
The first hints of just what a potent force X.Kernel were to become could be heard on their 2013 EP, Kingdom Of Pain, a digital self release. Now, after some line-up changes and four years of hard work, all X.Kernel’s potential has been realised in the incredible sounds of their debut album, Face The Truth. The vocal style has expanded to embrace soaring, emotive singing alongside the savage snarls and roars, the keyboard work of Alina Borodkina has come into its own, taking on a defining role in the songs and the music has embraced an exciting, adventurous spirit. The guitars still fire out superb riffs and spiral up into breathtaking solos and the rhythm section can still deliver a hammer blow of heaviness, but X.Kernel are carving out something more. Face The Truth is the sound of a band who are determined to stand out from the crowd, to lead the pack not just run with it.
The quality of Face The Truth was recognised by US label Cimmerian Shade Recordings who were quick to welcome X.Kernel to their roster. Now, on April 7th, the rest of the world will be able to hear the results of this metallic alliance. X.Kernel have combined a mastery of established forms with a fresh and expansive outlook, married depth and emotion to technical skill and forged an album that will capture hearts, minds and souls with its arrival on the field of battle.
Line-up:
Max Sklyar - Vocals
Nikita Larionov - Guitar, Vocals
Alina Borodkina - Keyboards
Oles Malezhyk – Bass

DRUG HONKEY (US) - 'CLOAK OF SKIES'
LP / CD / Box Set / Digital (May 5th, 2017)
Genre - Atmospheric Death/Doom Metal
Release Date - May 5th, 2017
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - GODFLESH, JESU, AUTHOR & PUNISHER, 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) 
6. Cloak of Skies (8:11) (Ft. Bruce Lamont of YAKUZA, CORRECTIONS HOUSE)
7. Pool of Failure (Remix by Justin K. Broadrick of GODFLESH, JESU remix) (6:29)
Line up: 
Paul Gillis (Honkey Head) - Vocals, synths, samples, fx
Adam Smith (BH Honkey) -Drums
Gabe Grosso (Hobbs) - Guitar
Ian Brown (Brown Honkey) - Bass

Florida Death Metal Veterans KILLING ADDICTION have released a lyric video for "Cult of Decay," a song from the Shores of OBLIVION EP. Get some Death below: www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEslBwlDPoI 
KILLING ADDICTION have returned with a new four-song EP titled Shores of Oblivion. The EP was released late last year on Xtreem Music and can be streamed in its entirety at https://xtreemmusic.bandcamp.com/album/shores-of-oblivion
On Shores of Oblivion, KILLING ADDICTION exemplifies a style that spans Death Metal (DEATH, POSSESSED, MORBID ANGEL, ATHEIST), Grindcore (NAPALM DEATH, CARCASS), and Thrash (SLAYER, SACRED REICH, KREATOR). Equally heavy is a lyrical approach that deals in themes both political and philosophical.

"Engine of Ruin" promo video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylQ0JLIh8iM
After its 1989 formation, right in the thick of the influential Florida Death Metal scene, KILLING ADDICTION released a demo and EP prior to the release of its 1993 full-length debut Omega Factor.  After another EP and a split release, the band called it quits in 1998, then reformed in 2006, eventually releasing sophomore full-length Fall of the Archetypes on Xtreem Music in 2010 (also released as a limited-edition, six-song EP). The When Death Becomes an Art 7" EP followed in 2015 (Inverse Dogma Records).
Momentum gained and all cylinders firing, KILLING ADDICTION wasted no time in releasing Shores of Oblivion last fall, but the season was a bittersweet one for the band, as founding member Chad Bailey passed away in September. The band is slowly moving forward in an effort to 
continue the work and vision he helped create.
KILLING ADDICTION BIO
Killing Addiction is a veteran deathgrind band hailing from the Florida music scene of the late1980s and early 1990s that spawned dozens of bands in the death metal genre. Their style is based in politically and philosophically charged themes combined with musical influences that span death metal (Death, Possessed, Morbid Angel, Atheist), grindcore (Napalm Death, Carcass), and thrash (Slayer, Sacred Reich, Kreator). 
In 1989, Chris Wicklein and brothers Chad and Pat Bailey formed Killing Addiction, in Ocala,Florida, and thus became one of the few bands of the time to help introduce death metal to the central Florida area. During this time, Killing Addiction released two well-received underground recordings, which eventually led to a full-length studio recording and the recruitment of drummer Chris York in 1992.
The debut full-length, titled Omega Factor, was released on the short-lived American label JL America, and helped solidify Killing Addiction's style as something apart from the typical sound associated with Floridian death metal. Omega Factor eventually became regarded as a minor classic and often earned the band the title of a cult death metal act. To support this recording, the band performed live throughout the north, central, and south Florida areas, with death metal legends such as Obituary, Atheist, Incantation, Brutality, and Resurrection, and early Floridian underground favorites such as Assuck and Paineater.
Upon the demise of JL America, the band independently released the Dark Tomorrow EP in 1994. This became Killing Addiction's last recording during the formative years of Floridian death metal, as Chris York parted ways for personal reasons. The remaining members decided that the band had run its course.  However, before their departure in early 1994, Killing Addiction was voted the Best North Florida Band a the 4th Annual Tampa Bay Metal Awards (September, 1993).
After more than a decade apart Killing Addiction reformed ready to pick up where they left off. Their first studio effort to return to the scene was Fall of the Archetypes (2010), released as a full-length album by Xtreem Music (Spain), and as a limited-edition, six-song EP. In September 2014, Killing Addiction recorded a two-song EP entitled When Death Becomes An Art, released as a 7" EP by Inverse Dogma Records (Italy) in early 2015.
The year 2016 was as successful as it was trying for Killing Addiction. The year saw the release of Shores of Oblivion (EP) by Xtreem Music, but also the personal and creative loss of founding member Chad Bailey, who pass away in September. The band is slowly moving forward in an effort to continue the work and vision he helped create.

ENRAGEMENT -BURNED, BARREN, BLOODSTAINED
Format: CD/Digital
Release Date: June 9th 2017
Record label: Inverse Records
Genre: Extreme Death Metal
Country: Finland
Since their debut full-length, 2014’s ”Omnimalevolence of Man”, Enragement has taken ever further leaps into the darkness. Honing skills, technique and atmosphere, and above all, their myriad visions of evil, the band’s new opus “Burned, Barren, Bloodstained” paints the bands most abysmal portrait of man to date.
Enragement presents a unique blend of three equal-footed growlers adding twisted nuances into the sea of brutality, to seamlessly highlight each step of their disgusting stories. And whether it be musical elements blackened, brutal or technical, Enragement knows that what matters in the end is the twisted end-product; a true soundtrack to a virgin’s last view in a serial-killers basement, or the red rain of bodyparts when a passenger plane is shot down, or the sick grin of a husband about to throw acid on his wife’s face…
No sound, no idea is beyond Enragement’s quest to create the ultimate song to capture the human condition at its darkest. This is Extreme Death Metal, this is Enragement!
Check their official music video "Blood for the sun god" here:  https://youtu.be/7GQYody5D3Y
Enragement is:
Tuomas Iivanainen - Guitar & Vocals
Atte Ojanne - Guitar & Vocals
Jarkko Niemi - Bass & Vocal

Record Label - Weird Truth Productions (Japan)
For fans of - CRUCIAMENTUM, DISEMBOWELMENT, DOLORIAN, WORSHIP, MOURNFUL CONGREGATION, TYRANNY, SHAPE OF DESPAIR, THERGOTHON, SKEPTICISM
United Kingdom's IMINDAIN have a made a name for themselves as a premiere death/doom metal band. Each album is an oppressive slab of emotive and dark music, following the footsteps of the genre's greats such as DISEMBOWELMENT, THERGOTHON, WORSHIP and WINTER. They return this year with a brand new release titled 'The Enemy of Fetters and the Dwellers in the Woods' which expands upon the foundation laid down with the earlier albums. Each of the songs are haunting and unique in their expressions and linger in the memory long after the album is over. The last song is a superb cover of one of DISEMBOWELMENT's songs, done in their style with added atmosphere and emotive depth. This is definitely one of the finest albums in this style of the new year to be released on a legendary doom label, Weird Truth Productions (Japan).

Die Groove- und Death- Metal Band MAGNACULT veröffentlicht Righteous Murder, das erste Video und auch der Opener von ihrem kommenden Album INFINITUM. Das Album wird am 12. Mai 2017 herausgebracht. Im Anschluß darauf folgen eine Reihe von Shows, von denen die ersten, mit DevilDriver, schon in dieser Woche angekündigt wurden.
Mit ihrem Debutalbum Synoré brachten sie 2007 ihren charakteristischen Groove- und Death-Metal auf die Bildfläche. Auf dem Nachfolgealbum Insua EnVenom wiederum beförderten sie ihren Sound auf das nächste Level. Brutaler und technischer als auf ihrem Debut, ist Insua EnVenom insgesamt schneller und erdrückender. Auf ihrem dritten Album, INFINITUM, haben MagnaCult schließlich ihren musikalischen Stil gefunden, mit einem epischen Release, vollgepackt mit mächtigen Gitarrensoli und einem unwiderstehlichen Groove.
Bei Righteous Murder geht es darum, wie man durch extrem kraftvolle und katastrophale Erlebnisse mit Anderen von der Möglichkeit beraubt wird, zu dem Menschen zu werden, der man sein könnte. In dem Video ist Alma Alizadeh von For I Am King sowohl zu hören als zu sehen und gibt diesem Song weiteren Tiefgang mit ihrer brutalen Stimme.
Im Laufe der Jahre haben MagnaCult sich eine starke Fanbase aufgebaut und sich die Bühne mit Bands wie Five Finger Death Punch, DevilDriver, Ill Niño, Nile, Kittie, Butcher Babies, Trivium, KING810 und vielen Anderen geteilt. Weitere Shows werden zweifellos an diese Liste hinzugefügt. Zuerst werden sie DevilDriver noch einmal auf einer Reihe von Shows in u.a. Deutschland und der Schweiz begleiten:

Einheit Produktionen freuen sich, das Signing derhoffnungsvollen Black-Metal-Formation THAKANDAR bekannt geben zu können. Die 2008 gegründete Band stammt aus dem Raum Osnabrück und hat sich nach einem Landstrich aus Robert Jordans Fantasy Epos „Das Rad der Zeit“ benannt, in welchem das Böse Einzug gehalten hat. Im Gegensatz zu den vorangegangenen Demos tendiert das aktuelle, von Markus Stock in der Klangschmiede Studio E produzierte, neue Album „STERBENDE ERDE“ deutlich in Richtung Melodic Black Metal. Es erzählt die Geschichte einer untergegangenen Zivilisation in einer postapokalyptischen Welt einer möglichen Zukunft. Das Konzept wurde u.A. von Stephen Kings „Der dunkle Turm“ und Dan Simmons „Die Hyperion Gesänge / Endymion“ inspiriert. „Sterbende Erde“ erscheint am 20. Oktober via Einheit Produktionen. Hier gibt es einen ersten Vorgeschmack:  https://youtu.be/Y4WHLHOaTL0

KLABAUTAMANN - SMARAGD
Genre: Progressive Black Metal
Label: Zeitgeister Music
VÖ: 06.06.2017
KLABAUTAMANN wurde im Jahre 1998 von Tim Steffens (Skarab) und Florian Toyka (Valborg, Island, Woburn House) in Meckenheim bei Bonn gegründet. Beide Musiker sind als Gitarristen für das komplette Songwriting verantwortlich. Unterstützung fanden sie immer wieder in Patrick Schroeder (ex-Valborg, ex-Centaurus-A), den man als langjährigen Session-Drummer im Prinzip als drittes Bandmitglied zählen kann.
KLABAUTAMANN waren und sind im Kern seit jeher als Black Metal Band einzuordnen, wobei sich früh progressive Elemente in der Musik wiederfanden. Das Debut-Album „Our Journey through the Woods“ sowie der Nachfolger „Der Ort“ waren dabei noch stärker Folk-lastig und von Frühwerken von Bands wie Opeth, Enslaved und Ulver inspiriert. Mit „Merkur“ gelang KLABAUTAMANN 2009 dann ein höchst eigenständiges Album, dass den bandeigenen Stil erweiterte und sowohl Black Metal als auch jazzige Elemente miteinander verknüpfte. Dieses Album gilt für viele aufgrund der einzigartigen Mischung aus Old School und Avantgarde als eines der bedeutendsten deutschen Black Metal Releases und fand sich in zahlreichen Bestenlisten des Jahres 2009. Während mit dem letzten Album „The Old Chamber“ für KLABAUTAMANN ungewohnt primitive und eingängige Wege beschritten wurden, tobt sich die Band auf dem anstehenden Release, unterstütz von zahlreichen Gastmusikern wie Anna Murphy (ex-Eluveitie, Lethe, Nucleus Torn) und Fredy Schnyder (Nucleus Torn), wieder in eher progressiveren Gefilden aus. Zum ersten Mal in der Bandgeschichte spielt auf diesem Album neben Tim’s Black Metal Vocals auch cleaner Gesang eine zentrale Rolle.
Mit Armin Rave konnte ein langjähriger Begleiter der Band für Mix und Mastering verpflichtet werden, das Artwork stammt von Costin Chioreanu (Mayhem, At The Gates, Triptykon, Opeth, u.v.m.)

Nach ihrer ersten Auskopplung „Bloodlines“veröffentlichen die dem Götheburg Style huldigenden Melodic Deather von ACROSS THE BURNING SKY mit „Sacrifice“ dieser Tage einen zweiten Song von ihrem aktuellen ALBUM „THE END IS NEAR“. Das Video, welches in Kooperation mit Metal Hammer Italia seine Premiere feierte, stellt eine Kombination aus Lyric Video und religiösen Motiven und Ritualen dar, welche im Kontext mit den Lyrics als grundsätzliche Religionskritik die Existenz eines Gottes und dessen Anbetung in Abrede stellen. 
„Sacrifice“ ist musikalisch einmal mehr eine rasante und garstig vorgetragene Ode an den frühen Melodic Death Metal der Neunziger und wird auch auf dem demnächst erscheinenden vierten Teil der „Hymns Of The Underground“ Compilation Reihe zu finden sein.

ENSLAVED to release «ROADBURN LIVE» 2LPfor Record Store Day, April 22nd!
«Roadburn Live» is Enslaved’s first officiallive album, a split release between Roadburn Records and By Norse Music. The album was recorded during one of band’s headline shows at the renowned Roadburn Festival 2015; an edition curated by Enslaved’s guitar player Ivar Bjørnson.
Walter Hoeijmakers / Roadburn's Artistic Director comments on the release:
"It’s no secret that there’s a strong friendship between Roadburn and Enslaved. One of the most hard-hitting and progressive bands to come out of Norway, Enslaved has played a significant part in the festival's history - both musically and artiscally. Not only has Enslaved been our artist in residence, bringing side-projects such as The Armageddon Concerto (the Enslaved / Shining collaboration), Dream of an Opium Eater and Trinacria to Roadburn, Ivar Bjørnson has also been our 2015 co-curator, along with Wardruna’s Einar Kvitrafn Selvik, and resulting in Skuggsjá's first ever performance outside of Norway. Enslaved’s 2015 performances were the pinnacle of this enduring and artistic friendship, and showcased the massive influence the band has had on both Roadburn, and the (underground) metal scene for the past two decades. To have these shows captured on vinyl is a dream come true for me, and I truly hope it’s the same for anyone who was in attendance, or those who want to indulge themselves in the Northern magic of Enslaved." 
«Roadburn Live» will be available as limited and exclusive Record Store Day color editions and as Roadburn/Enslaved-Webshop Gold edition including the original A3 Roadburn poster and color stickers !
To celebrate the release, what better way than to hold a playback session with the members of Enslaved at the Roadburn Festival 2017! Becky Laverty / Roadburn Festival comments: “Enslaved and Roadburn share a history that is entwined and their 2015 performance on the main stage was such a fantastic milestone for both parties, that it makes perfect sense for the show to be released as a live album. As the album will be released during Roadburn 2017, it seemed fitting to invite attendees and the band alike to join us for a playback session at the festival as part of our popular side program.”
More information about the playback session to be revealed soon!
«Roadburn Live» also features a brilliant layout created by highly respected artist and Roadburn’s regular graphic designer Costin Chioreanu. The album was mixed by Iver Sandøy at Solslottet Studio, mastered by Jens Bogren (Kreator, Opeth, Sepultura) in Fascination Studios. It is also the last official release with Herbrand Larsen on keys and vocals.
After celebrating 25 years in 2016 showcasing a majority of older material, «Roadburn Live» displays songs mainly from the "newer" and more progressive era of Enslaved’s career, with songs from “In Times”, “Riitiir”, “Isa”, “Below the Lights” and “Monumension”. Featuring guest appearances of Einar Selvik (Wardruna), Aðalbjörn Tryggvason (Sólstafir), Per Wiberg (Opeth, Candlemass); and Menno Gootjes (Focus) on "Immigrant Song", the first cover song by Enslaved to appear on any record ever.

Grutle Kjellson comments on the album: "I'm generally not a huge fan of live albums, I like to be present at a show, to grasp the energy of the band and to witness the, sometimes, magical symbiosis that occurs between the band and the audience. I am, however, a huge fan of the Roadburn Festival! I consider this to be my all time favorite, both as a musician and as a guest. Therefore; if ever Enslaved were to release a live album, it had to be from a Roadburn show! I hope you will enjoy listening to this piece of wax as much as we did recording it!"

CHAOS (India) - 'ALL AGAINST ALL'  
Ltd. Edition Box Set / CD / Digital
Genre - Thrash Metal
Release Date - June 15th, 2017
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity India (Sub-label)
For fans of - SODOM, KREATOR, SLAYER, VENOM, MUNICIPAL WASTE, ANTHRAX, D.R.I.
Indian thrash metal titans CHAOS are back with their sophomore album titled 'All Against All'. It's one of the most anticipated albums in this region, and that's not surprising considering what a rage their debut album 'Violent Redemption' was. Standards have been upped remarkably, with artwork being made by the talented Reuben Bhattacharya (Visual Amnesia) and better packaging this time around on digipak format as well as a limited edition hand-numbered gold-embossed box set. Like last time, the production is done by Keshav Dhar of SKYHARBOR and it sounds just as vitriolic and exciting as it needs to be. The performances are absolutely tremendous - everything is several notches up and the music actually sounds fresh. 'All Against All' is a riff-fest from start to finish and fans of old school thrash metal will be all over this. It's easily one of the mightiest albums to ever come out of this country.
Track list: 
1. The Great Divide 
2. The Inevitable Genocide 
3. All Against All 
4. Indoctrination 
5. Death To The Elite 
6. The Enemy 
7. Patrons of Pain 
8. Asylum 
9. Portrait In Blood

HIBAGON -  'POLYPOSMIC' (Italy)
RELEASE DATE:  May 12, 2017
RUNNING TIME: 39:51 minutes
GENRE: Math Metal (instrumental)
FFO: Melvins, ZU, Soundgarden, ZEUS!, Animals As Leaders, Periphery, Torche, Star Wars...
WEB: www.facebook.com/hibagon1    www.hibagon.bandcamp.com
PRE-ORDER    www.wooaaargh.com/hibagon
BANDCAMP    www.wooaaargh.bandcamp.com/album/hibagon-polyposmic
VIDEO TEASER  www.youtu.be/3aC_YclAsY0
HIBAGON is a heavy polyrhythmic two-piece that channels the energy of the straightforward guitar & drums formula into irregular textures, bringing it back to the listener in geometric and distorted frames.  
Born in Bergamo (ITALY) in 2011, the band has published two EPs and performed shows in Italy, Switzerland, Austria, France, Belgium, Ireland and UK.
In May 2017 the duo will release 'POLYPOSMIC', their first full-length record, which will include 12 intense and dynamic tracks that have been built, torn apart, and reassembled an infinite number of times to reach the most effective sequence of multiple themes. The story behind the album takes off with HIBAGON facing Moughra and falling in a state of unconsciousness. Reborn in a new shape after 120 thousand years, now he transcends space and time, and forces everything that happens to be on his path to mutate and reach new forms: the names on the tracklist are flashing suggestions of these alterations, to take the listener closer to the screenplay and then push him into a spiral of mathy grooves.
In 2017 HIBAGON will be touring to spread their tunes throughout all Europe, beware of the beast!
 
 
ATMOSPHERIC BLACK METALLERS SELVANS TO RELEASE LIVE ALBUM :  With their debut full-length album "LUPERCALIA" now in its third repress, and with work progressing on their next studio album,  Atmospheric Black Metallers SELVANS will celebrate the closing of the first chapter of their activity with a special live album  on Avantgarde Music.

The unique "Faun's Procession" artwork was conceived by Haruspex and brought into being by the Italian artist Umberto D'Ottavio.  Track listing on "Hirpi" is as follows:
1. Lupercale
2. Hirpi Sorani
3. O Clitumne!
4. Furore Pagano (Draugr cover)
5. Pater Surgens

Hi! Canadian Folk metal band MONGOL looking for some good label deal! Please check Mongol's music and let us know if you would be interested to make a deal with the band.
One track preview from upcoming EP  
https://mongolcanada.bandcamp.com/track/river-child
Forged in the frozen bowels of Edmonton, Alberta, the folk metal act, Mongol pays homage to the Mongolian Empire of old. Blending heavy melodic riffs with an array of folk instruments and Asian harmonies, Mongol wields a sound as diverse as the nations their historical influences conquered.
Mongol’s unique sound has taken them on many exciting journeys, including co-headlining Mongolia’s first international metal festival, “Noise Metal Fest,” alongside folk metal icons, Nine Treasures, in 2014. Since forming in 2009, Mongol has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such acts as Arkona, Kalmah, Nekrogoblikon, Havok, and many more.
Recently, Mongol has completed recording their upcoming EP entitled, “Warrior Spirit,” set to be released April 29, 2017. With this new EP, Mongol intends to spread their music as far and wide as the true Mongolian Empire. We are currently seeking physical distribution and financial support for our future concept album, “The Return,” in which Genghis Khan is resurrected from the dead to conquer the world. Warrior Spirit is a sample of what Mongol can achieve with limited resources and we are searching for the opportunity to release our new material at its fullest potential.

Australian Death Metal quintet IN DEATH have brokered a deal with Plastic Head for the official release of full-length debut album THE DEVIL SPEAKS. The album will be released on April 21. Pre-orders are available at this location.
In related news, the band has released an official video for album track "Bow to Your Master." Dive in at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOuqD4vKEoA
Vigorously honing their craft as a live act since August 2008, two crucial elements have developed within the band that now form part of the unofficial band ethos: Tight performances packaged with energetic delivery. The result can only be described as a whirlwind of energy punctuated by an intensely accurate technical punch.
IN DEATH combine overwhelming power and groove with subtle technicality and some unexpected twists to deliver a package that can not only cause frenzy among seasoned metal-heads, but also bring new fans to the metal genre with horns held high and banging heads.
IN DEATH... now established as a force to be reckoned with, is growing not only in stature, but as creative artists. The band's debut full length album features more varied influences compared to the Thanatos and self-titled EPs.. Some new material has a more pronounced progressive side, which is a natural progression as artists grow, but the band is always mindful of never letting the ever growing fan base down. There are certain things that must be expected when you come to an IN DEATH show, and they want to give the punters what they paid for! In this case, Death metal with a groove so intoxicating, you just can't help but bang your head!
IN DEATH.. Is forging their own path. Jump on board or be left in their wake!

SATURNAL RECORDS sets an international release date for the black industrial metal act KING SATAN’S debut album titled ”KING FUCKING SATAN” for 26th May 2017 and also releases a music video single of one song found from the album titled "Satanized (Praise Hail Satan!)"
In a world of established scene rules and tightly pre-determined genre boundaries, a black industrial metal freaks of KING SATAN serves fresh angle with their obscene brand of extreme music. The band thrives to combine into its industrial and electro based metal music quite strong influences of extreme metal, mainly black and death metal together with dark electro, EBM, aggrotech and even hard rock! This all wrapped up into a bizarre mixture of lyrical themes found within occult philosophy, psychological mindfuck and even sociological satire hand in hand with renegade rock’n’roll spirit that surely bows to nothing and no one!
The band run by vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer KING ALEISTER SATAN (a.k.a. FRA. ZETEKH) known before also as a front figure of occult black metal band SATURNIAN MIST founded KING SATAN in 2015 first as a solo project but due to the live shows the band has has now grown into a complete line-up.  With a demo and three singles - ”Enter Black Fire”, ”Psygnosis” and ”Satanized (Praise Hail Satan!)” - together with powerful live performances, KING SATAN managed to get both, quite prestigious gigs (supporting acts such as PAIN, PERTURBATOR, CARPENTER BRUT, VELVET ACID CHRIST, TURMION KÄTILÖT to name a few) and as well as a name in their native Finland and even abroad, all this before any album release!
Even being electro/industrial adjoined act, ”King Fucking Satan” album was recored and produced primarily analog in the chambers of KING ALEISTER’s own BLACKVOX STUDIO where he had produced not only his own bands before, but such acts as BARATHRUM, HORNA, TELOCH and SACRIFICIUM CARMEN also - which states the bands deep roots in the rugged sound of black metal underground even transcending from there towards the whole another type of artistic approaching and genre-defying creativity with reminds more a twisted amalgam where bands like THE PRODIGY, SKINNY PUPPY, G.G. ALLIN, DEICIDE and MAYHEM would meet in a chaotically integral musical output that still sounds original as HELL (sic)!
”King Fucking Satan” will be out 26th May 2017 world wide.
Track listing of King Fucking Satan album.
1. Dance With The Devil
2. As Above So Below
3. Enter Black Fire

Finnish metal group NOUMENA will release their fifth studio album ”MYRRYS” on the 28th of April. The album is a strong follower to Noumena’s previous album ”Death Walks With Me” released four years ago.
As an appetizer, Noumena serves a single track “Metsän viha” in digital services and as a lyric video in YouTube:
 https://youtu.be/_VCRVqhCzSs
Metsän viha is an upbeat opening track of the album, which is a great choice as a single as well.  The song combines catchy melodies, badass riffs, overwhelming drumming and Andy’s and Suvi’s merciless growls. Lyrics deal with the humanity’s ability to destroy everything vital and dear, comments guitarist Tuukka Tuomela, who has composed the song.
The album is an eloquent combination of 90’s style melodic death metal and melancholic Finnish mollie tunes. The album is mixed and mastered by the metal visionary Dan Swanö, who has ensured wide and dynamic sounds. “Myrrys” offers a musical journey all the way from catchy upbeat moments to sturdy and desolate emotions.
With melodies, riffs, sounds and lyrics, “Myrrys” paints a picture of a mindscape filled with contradictions and Northern despair. The album title “Myrrys” (old Finnish) refers to ruckus, tumult or uproar. So far, Noumena has sticked to English as lyrical language, but the album themes, including Finnish nature and cultural heritage, and intimate stories required the use of Finnish. Every band member has contributed to songwriting, and the formidable cover art is crafted by Finnish young talent Otto Lehtonen.
“Myrrys” is Noumena’s second album with vocalist Suvi Uura, who contrasts and balances skillfully Antti Haapanen’s growls with her deep voice. Uura joined Noumena in 2009 and the rest of the band are original members in the band turning 20 years in 2018.
On the album release day (28.04.2017) Noumena will also release their next official music video directed by Jyrki Murtomäki.
“Myrrys” is released by Haunted Zoo Productions, which is an independent record label established by Noumena members. Distribution by Playground Music and Inverse Records. Released in Russia by FONO under the license from Haunted Zoo Productions. Album is released in CD/LP/DIGI.

North west extreme death metal horde DEAD CONSPIRACY have released a music video for "In the Wake of the Butcher," a track from the band's 2016 self-titled album. Check it out at  this location.
New Noise Magazine praised the band's new album by saying it "...does everything you need OSDM to do." 
Purchase Dead Conspiracy at deadconspiracy.bandcamp.com
The band credited with being Portland's first-ever death metal act released its long-anticipated first full-length LP of new material in November. Dead Conspiracy is available on CD, vinyl and digital formats through Necromantic Press Records. Exile Music will release the album on cassette. CDs featuring the 1987 demo and a cover track recorded for Tribute To Headhunter Death Cult are offered in Brazil by Funeral Rites Records.  
The follow-up to the band's critically-acclaimed 2014 Abomination Underground, the self-titled album is an utterly destructive, dark, depraved, and disgustingly satisfying piece of death metal that fans of Death, Gruesome, Sodom, Massacre and all the old gods will surely appreciate.
This is beyond old school - this is fucking original!
Formed in 1986, DEAD CONSPIRACY was a pioneering influence on multitudes of blackened death thrash metal bands worldwide. A series of demo tapes followed before the band sunk into the shadows in the early-90s. In 2006 Hells Headbangers Records contacted members of DEAD CONSPIRACY in 2006 with the idea of releasing a compilation of the band's demos. The result was the 19-track Gore Drenched Legacy, complete with a booklet full of liner notes, photos, lyrics and concert fliers. The deal with Hells Headbangers awakened the beast and DEAD CONSPIRACY returned with a new lineup at 2012's Goregon Massacre Festival III.
With the addition of Mike Abominator formerly of Gravehill on vocals and new drummer Eric A DEAD CONSPIRACY are sounding more brutal than ever!
"DEAD CONSPIRACY was one of the world's first death metal bands. We were seriously surprised at how heavy and driving and intricate the material was, well advanced back in the day; before it's time. Fucking glad it's finally getting out there!" - Mitch Harris (Napalm Death)
"If you like old school, brutal, pounding death metal then you MUST check out DEAD CONSPIRACY! You'll be headbanging so violently that your neck will never forgive you!" - Richard Christy (Death, Charred Walls of the Damned, The Howard Stern Show)

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.

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

Australian Black Metal Band, A MOURNFUL PATH, are currently in pre-production stages for the debut release on Inverse Records later this year. The band plans to unleash “SUBTERRANIC TRI TONAL AUGMENTED BONE CHILLING HELL.” It is still unclear if the release will be EP or album format. More details to be announced later.
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. 
A Mournful Path is: 
David Romeo: Song writing and all instruments

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

1. Whirlwind of Initiation

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.

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
Line up: 
Stevie: Vox 
Trevor: Guitar and bass 
Jeremy: Drums

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
Rasmus Tauk - guitar
René Jõhve - turntables & sampling

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!
