DEADFREIGHT OF SOUL – “TORTURED PUPPETS”
Genre: Death Metal
Label: Kernkraftritter Records
Vertrieb: Alive
VÖ: 20.10.2017
Seit 2007 gibt sich die Band Deadfreight of Soul größte Mühe das Publikum für die Dauer ihres Bühnenspektakels den Alltag vergessen zu lassen. Die Jungs wissen um ihren Namen und dieser ist auch das erklärte Programm: Die kraftvoll und energiegeladen vorgetragene Musik lässt die Ängste und Sorgen, diese „Laster der Seele“ der Zuhörer, in den Hintergrund treten.
Mit einer Mischung aus klassischen Metal-Zutaten wie Doublebase- und Blastbeats, die jedoch auch in virtuose und komplexe Rhythmen münden, legt die Augsburger Death Metal Formation die Fundamente ihrer Songs. Hinzu gesellen sich lebendige Melodien, die immer wieder von harten, dreckigen Gitarrenriffs durchbrochen werden. Zuletzt die charakteristischen Vocals, welche sich aus Shouts, Growls, Screams und Pig Squeals in ihrer aggressivsten, brutalsten Form zusammensetzen.
Mit zahlreichen Gigs und diversen Bandwettbewerben, bei denen stets das Finale erreicht werden konnte, erscheint schon 2010 die erste E.P., die den Bandnamen „Deadfreight of Soul“ trägt. Es folgt die selbstorganisierte „Infinity of Resistance Tour 2011“ durch Süddeutschland und die „Human Flesh Course Tour“ 2015 durch ganz Deutschland. Ein weiteres Highlight war das Metal-Festival „The day the Dead Walked 2013“ in Augsburg, welches jährlich wiederholt wird
Mit ihrer professionellen Promo E.P. „Ophois“ (Mai 2014), liefert das Ensemble bereits einen Vorgeschmack auf ihr Debütalbum „Tortured Puppets“, welches im Winter 2017 veröffentlicht wird. Man darf gespannt sein, was die Band mit ihrer ersten großen Platte liefern wird und sollte sich den Namen „Deadfreight of Soul“ für die Zukunft merken.

DER DONNER DES OSTENS SCHLÄGT WIEDER EIN! LOUDNESS, DIE PIONIERE DES JAPANISCHEN HEAVY METALS, VERÖFFENTLICHEN NEUES ALBUM „RISE TO GLORY”.   Bereits seit ihrer Gründung 1981 gelten LOUDNESS als die Vorreiter der japanischen Heavy Metal-Szene. Mit ihren Alben „THUNDER IN THE EAST”(1985 / #74 US Charts) und „LIGHTNING STRIKES” (1986 / #64 US Charts) gelang ihnen auch international der Durchbruch. Nun erscheint am 26. Januar 2018 ihr neues Album „RISE TO GLORY” – erstmals bei earMUSIC (Welt ex. Japan). Vollgepackt mit Aggression, Melodie und gleichzeitig positiver Stimmung setzen Loudness ihren globalen Siegeszug fort.
Sänger Minoru Niihara erklärt: „Das Album pusht einen hoch, es hinterlässt ein Gefühl von Frische und Erneuerung.“
Vom Rock-Mahlstrom „Massive Tornado“ zur brennenden Leidenschaft von „Soul On Fire”, dem lebensbejahenden „I’m Still Alive” und der Metal-Kriegserklärung von „Rise To Glory” – sie alle wirken als aufbauende Lieder zu Zeiten des Aufruhrs.
Die Gitarrenmagie von Akira Takasaki, weltweit bejubelt als einer der wahren Gitarrengötter, zeigt sich das ganze Album hindurch. Er gibt zu: „Ich habe diesmal unglaublich viel Gitarrensound beigesteuert – mehr als auf jedem anderen Album dieses Jahrhunderts. Der Sound besitzt eine Seele!“ Seine Performance würde selbst inbrünstige Fans überraschen. Neben den Gitarrensoli, die sich durch jeden Song ziehen, zeigt sich sein unglaubliches Können insbesondere auf dem instrumentalen Track, der sich weitestgehend an die progressivere Seite der Band anlehnt.
Zusammen mit rasend schnellen Songs wie „Massive Tornado“, „No Limit“ und „Rise To Glory“ nehmen abwechslungsreiche Texte den Hörer mit auf eine aufregende Reise. „Rain“ besitzt die melancholische Stimmung, „Until I See The Light“ konzentriert sich auf die melodische Seite der Band und „Let’s All Rock“ ist ein hitziges Ruf-Antwort-Spiel mit dem Publikum, welches sich stark an die Live Performances der Band anlehnt.
“From the Far East, we came to conquer / Across the seven seas” – Rise To Glory
Mit „RISE TO GLORY” und der darauffolgenden großen Welttournee treten LOUDNESS ihren größten weltweiten Eroberungszug seit den 1980ern an.
Die europäische und US-Version des Albums wird durch „SAMSARA FLIGHT“ ergänzt, einer Sammlung von 13 Klassikern der Band wie „Loudness“ und „In The Mirror“, die 2016 neu aufgenommen wurden.

Things are heating up for DEMONSTEALER's upcoming release which has a series of guest contributions. In addition to the previously announced drummers such as  Krimh  of SEPTICFLESH, ex-DECAPITATED and Romain  of BENIGHTED, NECROPHAGIST, there are now two renowned bassists who're going to be on the album. The first one is Arran McSporran of VIRVUM, DE PROFUNDIS and the second one is Stefano Franceschini of ABORTED, HIDEOUS DIVINITY. The lineup is looking very formidable and there is some serious talent on offer here. Both bassists have released videos announcing their contributions on the release  HERE and  HERE  respectively.
DEMONSTEALER's founder Sahil Makhija has this to say about it all -
"'I've known Stefano and Arran for a long time now and I did record bass for 2 tracks on the album and I will be for 1 more. However the level of difficulty of all the tracks is varying and I felt I needed a helping hand with the bass playing so I hit up both Arran and Stefano and they agreed to be part of the project. The project just seems to have expanded and the planned EP has become a full-length album with Kevin Paradis playing 2 songs, David Diepold doing 2 as well and myself playing drums on a track as well. I've also got a couple more musicians to announce. All I can say is this project is so much fun and I'm loving the ability to collaborate with such incredible musicians from all over the world.'"
DEMONSTEALER currently have a crowdfunding campaign going on and have so far reached 174% of the target. The Pledgemusic link can be found HERE 
DEMONSTEALER is the solo project of Sahil Makhija who is the founding member of one of India's biggest bands, DEMONIC RESURRECTION.  He dons multiple roles and the music too is completely in his own vision with ample experimentation and collaborations. The previous DEMONSTEALER album received much praise and saw the release of several official videos in its support. The new album is said to be more death metal and with a number of exemplary musicians slated to be a part of it, it's highly anticipated around the world. 
DEMONSTEALER have also recruited the services of renowned Indian artist Reuben Bhattacharya (Visual Amnesia), who did the breathtaking artwork of the latest DEMONIC RESURRECTION album which you can see below. 
DEMONSTEALER (INDIA/INTERNATIONAL) - 'THIS BURDEN IS MINE'
Genre

Record Label - Demonstealer Records (India)
For fans of - NILE, SOILWORK, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, BENIGHTED, ABORTED, DEMONIC RESURRECTION, REPTILIAN DEATH, ADE
Sahil Makhija aka DEMONSTEALER, helming bands like DEMONIC RESURRECTION and REPTILIAN DEATH, teams up with none other than George Kollias of NILE fame on drums, to release a groundbreaking album in 'This Burden is Mine'. With a vast experience and multiple instrument proficiency, DEMONSTEALER, on the new album create music that surpasses simple genre categorization, for this is a new blend of styles from all over - from death metal to thrash metal, laced with elegant and stunning atmospheric parts, propelled by the world class drumming of the legend George Kollias. This is a new epic coming from the biggest names in not just the region but also worldwide, and this could very well be a tour de force, the album we've all been waiting for. The album showcases rare maturity, with DEMONSTEALER indulging in melodic solos and accentuating them with moments of clean vocals. This is easily the most ambitious release to come out from these parts and it's imperative to give 'This Burden of Mine' a check.

Hungarian black metallers NOCRUL have released their fourth full-length "EYE OF TERROR" via Bandcamp. It contains seven new heroic black metal songs and a cover from the band Heaven And Hell.
The band comments: "The Eye of Terror is a realm of madness and despair, where skies weep blood, ancient stars burn in multi-coloured flares and the whims of the Dark Gods of Chaos hold sway. The weak and foolish bands like to say the new record is their very best - we think this kind of statement is pure humiliating of the previous releases and the listeners who enjoyed them. Nocrul's new material is just as good as any others before! The only but slightly differences is that the songs have more variety through the album than before - not to be better, but because this was the requirement of the Chaos Gods!"
Apart from Bandcamp you can find the first lyric video on Youtube!

Finnish death metallers MASK OF SATAN were founded in February 2015 by three individuals who already shared the same bands but wanted to create something more. Idea for a death metal band was generated through old horror movies and common interest in gore. You can hear influences such as Six Feet under, The Grotesquery and Necrophagia in Mask of Satan’s music.
Overall idea was to keep it simple and old-school and to be able to play as a trio. The name Mask of Satan comes from an old Italian horror movie La machera del Demonio (1960), which translates as Mask Of Satan.
The concept of H. P. Lovecraft lyrical theme album came up in 2016 and has proven to be great inspirational source for MoS.
Naturally biblical interest for Lovecraft's work was already there, lurking in the subconscious mind!
Mask Of Satan stands as a proud continuation of Horror and Gore and with unique style delivers terror to mortals!

TORSO MURDER – “ TORSO MURDER”
Release Date: October 1st 2017
Label: Self Released
Genre: Metal, Deathcore, Djent, Deathmetal
During the 1930’s, a serial killer roamed the streets of Cleveland, Ohio. Murdered, emasculated, disemboweled, and dismembered at least 12 people, most never identified. They were dubbed the TORSO MURDER's also known as the Kings Bury Run Murder’s.
The band TORSO MURDER was born from these horrific stories. The Torso Murder self-titled debut album is out worldwide via CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon, Google play, Bandcamp. The album is a concept album with every song being a chapter from this brutal killers reign. Torso Murder also available streaming on Pandora, Apple Music, Spotify, and Deezer.
The killer was never officially identified and had many theories and suspects. By popular belief Dr. Francis Sweeney was the killer. Running with this theme is Torso Murder’s debut album. It is also led to believe the killer road box cars from the rail yard in Cleveland, Ohio down to Youngstown, Ohio and to the south side of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania leaving a trail of body parts to and fro.

This is a highly awaited release this side of the world. This gritty thrash metal band from Bangladesh have come up with a strong album with the right intent and aesthetics. They know what they want to play and are nailing it. You can check out the first track on YouTube  AT THIS LINK.
EXALTER (BANGLADESH) - 'PERSECUTION AUTOMATED'
CD / T-shirt / Digital
Genre - Thrash Metal
Release Date - December 28th, 2017
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Asia (sub-label)
For fans of - SLAYER, SODOM, KREATOR, DESTRUCTION, DARKNESS, PROTECTOR, SLAUGHTER , EXODUS
Arguably Bangladesh's best known thrash metal band, EXALTER have surfaced late this year to give us a brand new full length packed with their trademark style of old school thrash. Carrying on in the style that they cemented on their infamous 'Obituary for the Living' release, now completely sold out, they've worked on their structuring some more and give us an equally enjoyable and even more memorable album in 'Persecution Automated'. With its infallible foundation in Teutonic and in parts even early Canadian thrash metal sound, EXALTER are poised to become one of the strongest contenders for Asia's burgeoning thrash metal scene.

Four years later Vindkall and Ulv recorded the demo Blodskald before Vindkall continued on his own until 2008 when the drummer Hrimner and the bass player Hraegelmir (Panphage) joined. In 2009 DOMGÅRD recorded five tracks for a split with Cursed 13 which was released on the winter solstice the same year. The following year Heljarmadr (Cursed 13, Grá, Dark Funeral) joined the trio and contributed on two full length albums, I Nifelhels Skygd (2010) and Myrkviðr (2012).

US site Toilet ov Hell has premiered the second track of this beautiful atmospheric black metal band from down under. They share a member of Somnium Nox and Norse and the music is just as dark and emotive as you would expect. They've had this to say about it - 
"The winding structure pulls you deeper into an inward place, the cold and dark tone clinging to you like a familiar gloom. The narrative elements compel exploration, and each new listen will reward inquisitive ears."

With the release of TAAKE'S "KONG VINTER" less than three weeks away, Dark Essence Records have today debuted a track from what will be the seventh full-length album from one of Norway's Black Metal elite. The track "Inntrenger" can be heard at the following:
Bandcamp: 
 https://taake.bandcamp.com/album/kong-vinter
SoundCloud:
 https://soundcloud.com/dark-essence-records/taake-inntrenger
Spotify:
 https://open.spotify.com/album/2XIkWr8cCHspvC9ovxoAuV
You could never mistake "Kong Vinter" for anyone's work other than that of founder and frontman Hoest,  whose body of work,  which spans over two decades, coupled with his magnetic stage presence, has made  him into an icon for Black Metal fans the world-over.  As is usual with TAAKE,  there has been a three year break between albums,  and, once again playing all the instruments himself, Hoest has produced  an album which, whilst losing none of the atmosphere that makes TAAKE so recognizable, still manages to surprise with its underlying nasty groove that can, at times, have an almost devilish playfulness about it. It is deceptively familiar to the ear, yet it is unpredictable. It is progressive, and yet straight  forward.  And of course there are always some elements of  rock’n’roll, the Devil's music itself.
Set for release on Dark Essence Records on the 24th November, "Kong Vinter" was recorded and produced by Bjornar Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES) at his Conclave and Earshot Studios in Bergen.  With a running time of 55 minutes and with photography by Christopher Zibell and artwork by Tom Korsvold of Coverart,  track listing is as follows:
1. Sverdets Vei
2. Inntrenger
3. Huset i Havet
4. Havet i Huset
5. Jernhaand
6. Maanebrent
7. Fra Bjoergegrend mot Glemselen
8. On Top (De Press cover, bonus track on the vinyl edition)
TAAKE will be appearing at the "Kong Vinter" Release Party at the John Dee in Oslo, Norway, on the 1st December.  Also appearing will be Dark Essence Records label-mates HELHEIM, along with ASAGRAUM.
"Kong Vinter" will be released in  Digipak CD, Digital and Vinyl formats, with the Vinyl available in black, transparent and white versions. All are double 180 gram LPs in gatefold cover. Transparent and white are limited to 1000 each. "Kong Vinter" is now available to pre-order from the following:

MANHATTAN LOVESTORY -  “MANHATTAN LOVESTORY”
Genre: Death Metal
MANHATTAN LOVESTORY ist eine 2010 von  Oliver Claus, Pavlos Chatzistavridis, Frederik Gutbrod und Jelle van Ijsselmuiden  ins Leben gerufene, moderne Death-Metal-Band. Der Bandname leitet sich nicht etwa vom allseits bekannten Hollywoodstreifen mit Jennifer Lopez ab, sondern von dem indianischen Wort ”Manna-Hata”. Dies bedeutet so viel wie "Ort der Vergiftung", umgangssprachlich auch "Platz der Säufer". Was im ersten Moment humorvoll klingt, ist auf CD gepresst ein kraftvoller, brutaler Brocken, der wenig mit guter Laune zu tun hat. Auf dem Weg zum selbstbetitelten Debütalbum hatten MANHATTAN LOVESTORY aber noch einige Line-up-Wechsel zu überwinden. So stießen 2015 Johannes Wolf als zweiter Gitarrist und Robin Khorrami als neuer Bassist dazu. Mit dieser starken Besetzung wurde es ernst und die Jungs begannen, an ersten Songs zu feilen. Nach einigen Songwriting Sessions ging es Ende 2016 in München bei Another Diamond Recordings (Mitglieder von Pathways und Into Oblivion) ins Studio.
In konzentrierter und ergiebiger Weise wurde ein Debütalbum geschaffen, das vor Energie nur so strotzt. Neben der Musik innewohnender, unnachgiebiger Wucht findet sich auf "Manhattan Lovestory" aber genügend Groove, um die Nackenmuskulatur in Schwung zu bringen. Einzelne, filigrane Zwischenparts unterstreichen zusätzlich die apokalyptische Stimmung des Debüts – das mit den fiesen, hasserfüllten Vocals von Frontmann Pavlos (auch bei Necrotted aktiv) das passende stimmliche Aushängeschild parat hält. MANHATTAN LOVESTORY haben sich weit vor diesem Debüt einen hervorragenden Namen in der Szene erspielt. Lediglich mit zwei Demosongs ausgestattet, konnte die Band bereits als Support für  namhafte internationale Bands wie The Acacia Strain, Upon A Burning Body, Hackneyed, Jinjer und The Voynich Code auftreten, sowie mit nationalen Hochkarätern wie The Green River Burial, Walking Dead on Broadway, Necrotted und Science of Sleep die Bühne entern. Das von der immer weiter wachsenden Fanbase langersehnte erste Album dürfte für Furore sorgen. Gemeinsam mit Jonny Doe aus Berlin wurde zudem noch ein Cover-Design der Extraklasse erschaffen, was dem großartigen Sound auch ein visuelles Antlitz verleiht.
Beim DE MORTEM ET DIABOLUM hat sich für die 2017er-Ausgabe im Dezember noch ein Billing-Wechsel ergeben. Leider mussten TOTALSELFHATRED ihren Auftritt absagen. Neu bestätigt wurden dafür die Old School Heavy Metal-Durchstarter ATTIC, die unlängst ihr zweites Album veröffentlicht haben. Damit ist das Billing wieder komplett. Anbei findet ihr noch den aktuellen Flyer sowie die aktuelle Tagesaufteilung – die Running Order soll zeitnah folgen.

Black Metallers CREST OF DARKNESS, whose founder and frontman Ingar Amlien is an acknowledged expert on Vampirism and the Occult, and who is often called upon by the Norwegian media to comment on such matters, are celebrating Halloween with the release of a lyric video for the track "The Noble Art".

With the release of their second full-length album, "EGOCIDAL PATH", on Dark Essence Records,  a month away, the 3RD ATTEMPT have released a video of a track from the album.  The video, by Lukas Jaszak , for the track "I'll Do It Now" can be seen at  https://youtu.be/Ca0WwsIq0cs
Commenting on the track itself, guitarist/bassist Tchort had this to say:
"Musically this song differs from anything we did on the first album, or, indeed, on "Egocidal Path" itself for that matter.  It's melodic but old school, and contains some breaks that are perhaps a bit untraditional as regards Black Metal as I know it.  And knowing that the lyrics are actually very deep emotions and personal experience made flesh, so to speak, the impact this has on the melody and the depth of feeling expressed in the vocals is that much stronger".
It is the strength of the emotions expressed in the lyrics that surprised video maker Jaszak  and affected the way in which he  approached the making of the video, as he explains:
"I like to work at night, but that proved impossible with this particular song with its seemingly simple, self-explanatory lyrics.  But they grow on you without you realizing and before you know it, you're thinking about ending it all.  I know it sounds naive, but  try listening to this on repeat, at night, with the words flashing on the screen - on and on. 
"I tried to make this video as simple as the message itself, whilst portraying the feelings of chaos and desperation that consume the  main character.  We definitely did not want to get too literal with the subject here, and we chose to ignore the blood and razors and all the usual worn out clichés, and focus instead on emotional chaos.  Although suicide may seem like an easy way out for most, I feel instead that it is a horrifying vortex of tangled emotions, and  both the song and the video show this".
Given the intensity that both Tchort and Jaszak picked up on in both Ødemark's lyrics and his performance, the vocalist reveals the anguish behind the song:
"When I first heard the music for "I'll Do It Now" played in the studio, I felt that the atmosphere surrounding it was the perfect environment in which to talk about how, at the age of 12, I made a serious attempt at killing myself for the second time.  I could have just described the scene and been obvious about it, but the music awakened something in me and  I decided instead to write about what went on in my head, without resorting to any poetic artifice, artistic pretensions or judgment whatsoever.  I therefore chose to regress to that particular moment in my life, something which, incidentally, was much harder to do than I had expected, and write the lyrics using the thoughts exactly as they went through my mind. 
" I had to open myself up to being  as vulnerable as possible in order to once again become that child who had decided to take his own life, and to write down his thoughts with total honesty.  Some of it might sound clichéd, or even naive and childish, but I needed to keep the truth undistorted in order to create the purest, most honest piece of art possible, and align that honesty with my vision of what Black Metal should be" 
Formed by former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION) and BloodPervertor (OPUS FORGOTTEN), the duo recruited Ødemark on vocals and Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) on drum,s and released the band's debut album "Born in Thorns" on Dark Essence Records in 2015.  As Tchort recently explained, that album still had some of the remnants of the CARPATHIAN FOREST era, whilst "Egocidal Path", on the other hand,  was written with a fresh approach,  resulting in an in-your-face album that is much tighter and much more aggressive, with Ødemark's lyrics and vocal range dragging the listener kicking and screaming into his own skewed universe.
With artwork by the Brazilian artist Rafael Tavares, tracklisting for "Egocidal Path" is as follows:
1. Blood, Dope and Black N Roll
2. Into the Light
3. Reflections about Knives
4. Egocide
5. I’ll do it now
6. The Disciples
7. Black Metal Alchemist

WOLFHORDE – “THE GREAT OLD ONES”
Format: Digital
Release Date: December 1st 2017
Record label: Inverse Records
Genre: Folk Metal
Country: Finland
Wolfhorde is releasing a tribute EP with three cover songs from the best known pioneers of Finnish metal music: Finntroll, Moonsorrow and Amorphis. These bands have been big inspiration to Wolfhorde and also to many others.
From the core, Wolfhorde is a Folk Metal band, but after all categories don’t really mean that much. With this release we want to show where our biggest musical inspiration comes from and how long and diverse is the history of Finnish Folk Metal, which leads back to early 90’s death metal of Amorphis, to Epic Heathen Metal of Moonsorrow and finally to humppa-infused black metal of Finntroll.
All these bands are bound together, but everyone with their very different styles of music. Even the language of every song is another. We thought that a compilation of these unique songs should definitely make an interesting time travel to roots of this genre of music in Finland.
”I think we should remember to sometimes forget about categorization of music and just enjoy the different range of varieties. With the release of this tribute EP titled The Great Old Ones, Wolfhorde wants to show the range of different elements within the genre. Just sit back and enjoy good music.”, says Werihukka – the composer and guitar player of Wolfhorde.
In the meanwhile, Wolfhorde will concentrate energy to creating a new full-length album.

Lavadome Productions will release the HORROR GOD / TECHNE SPLIT CD on November 20. This eight-track album which presents takes great lengths to show how art can manifest if bands have the chops and perseverance to place expression and originality above all else.
Horror God and Techne each contributed four tracks to the album, all of them loaded with equal amounts of monstrous riffs and intensity. The similarities end there as each band retains their own sound and style throughout the split.
Album pre-orders and streams of Horror God's "Dust" and "Conviction by Techne are online at lavadome.bandcamp.com/album/horror-god-techne-split.
Horror God offers three brand new originals and a ripping cover of "Sinking into Transparency," from Canadian death metal band Purulence. A true, but rewarding challenge.
With two full-length albums under Horror God's belt, the new material is a continuation of the band's thrilling musical journey. The tracks are indicative of Horror God's evolution as the band continues to expand its sound and push beyond the trappings of recycled death metal.  The band showcases the ongoing artistic process of creating music that remains rooted in tradition, yet simultaneously progressive.  
We won't make any comparisons to other bands here. Just listen and embrace. Lavadome Productions will release Horror God's new full-length studio album in 2018.
Techne and their music, that's another story altogether. This is a band that thinks outside the box and is not searching for ways to find its place in the death metal scene that their counterparts in Horror God have so successfully accomplished. Those willing to listen intently will discover a band that has embraced the entire spectrum of death metal, but transcend its stereotypes.
Techne is intense, dark, oppressively disturbing and slightly industrialized.
The band's contribution to the split is surreal and proves that extreme music can rife with complexity and technicality, yet accessible to the listener. Art such as this needs no label.
Techne approached this release with one goal - to permanently imprint the music - and the atmosphere it creates - on the listener's brain. Mission accomplished. Unfortunately for Techne fans, it's "Finita la Commedia" with this release.
The art for the split CD has been created by talented Russian artist  Kirill

Falls ihr nun irgendwie absolut nicht wisst ,was  ihr mit Eurer sauer verdienten Kohle anfangen sollt  - denke ich doch mal ,dass ihr hier den einen oder anderen Tonträger finden werdet ,in welchem ihr ne gute Investition tätigen könnt :

Werte Geschmacksmenschen!  VLAD IN TEARS oder: Die Ruhe vor dem Sturm!
Seit einigen Jahren schon geistert der Name Vlad In Tears durch die Gothic/Rock/Metal-Szene. Kris Vlad (Gesang), D. Vlad (Bass), Giovanni De Benedetto (Gitarre) und Cosmo Cadar (Schlagzeug) kommen ursprünglich aus Italien und Rumänien und haben sich in Deutschlands Hauptstadt zusammengefunden.
In den letzten Jahren tourten sie mit Bands wie Combichrist, Crematory, Xandria und den 69 Eyes und erfreuen sich einer stetig wachsenden Fangemeinde, die sich ihnen voll und ganz verschrieben hat.
Nachdem sie 2016 ihr Album UNBROKEN veröffentlicht hatten, dauerte es nicht lange, bis Vlad In Tears sich wieder auf den Weg ins Studio machten um an ihrem sechsten Longplayer SOULS ON SALE zu arbeiten.
Der Titel klingt nicht nur gut, er umfasst alles wofür die Band steht:
  Sich selbst treu zu bleiben, sich komplett dem zu widmen, woran sie glaubt, ALLES für die Fans zu geben, ihre Herzen, ihre Seelen – ohne sich selbst zu verkaufen.
Mit SOULS ON SALE legen Vlad In Tears ihr Innerstes frei, und genau deshalb ist es das dunkelste und reinste Album in ihrer bisherigen Karriere. Rockig und klar, gerade heraus.
Trotzdem klingt SOULS ON SALE komplett anders als man es von Vlad In Tears gewohnt ist.
Es ist ein weiterer Schritt in der Entwicklung der Wahlberliner, ein gewaltiger nach vorn. Sie experimentieren, sie wachsen, und dann springen sie.
Das ist es, was sie immer getan haben und das ist auch genau das, was Ihr erfahren werdet, wenn Ihr Euch diesen großartigen Mix aus Gut und Böse, Schwarz und Weiß anhört, wenn Ihr Euch Eurer tiefsten Ängste und größten Augenblicke bewusst werdet, wenn Vlad In Tears Euch in eine Welt voller Kontraste entführen – ohne irgendwelche Grenzen zu kennen.
Mit SOULS ON SALE legen Vlad In Tears eine Glanzleistung hin. Eine Mischung aus harten Riffs, brillanten Lyrics und treibenden Beats wird Euch mit sich reißen und dann rastlos zurücklassen.
Die einzige Frage, die noch bleibt: Wieviel ist Eure Seele wert?
Stay Vlad!

Am 24. November 2017 erscheint mit "METAL MESS" ein Bildband, welcher die Anhänger nicht nur in gewohnter Pose auf oder vor den Bühnen der Stadt zeigt, sondern auch das alltägliche Leben der Musiker und Fans.
Als stetige Begleiterin der Berliner Metal Szene war es Fotografin Franziska Lemmor eine Herzensangelegenheit Metal-Anhänger der Hauptstadt in Szene zu setzen und und dem Betrachter mit diesem Buch zu ermöglichen dieses Genre der Musik so zu erleben, wie sie es auch über die vielen Jahre erfahren durfte und darüberhinaus neue Einblicke geben zu können.
Im Rahmen einer Ausstellung mit Fotografien des Buches als großformatige Kunstdrucke wird der Bildband am 24.11. im Tiefgrund (im Zukunft am Ostkreuz) präsentiert.
Die Erstauflage von 25 Stück ist zwar bereits komplett reserviert, es wird aber eine Liste für eine zweite Auflage ausliegen.
Außerdem werden Norkh den Abend mit ihren Black/Death Klängen musikalisch untermalen.
Der Eintritt ist frei. Beginn ist 18:30 Uhr.
Ein Muss für jeden Local Underground Supporeter und Berliner Metal-Enthusiasten!

Die Veröffentlichung ist für Anfang 2019 geplant, und dann soll's auch wieder live zur Sache gehen.
Stichwort Veröffentlichung: Till hat im September das zweite Album seines Projekts Lucid Dreaming auf die Menschheit losgelassen. Das gute Stück hört auf den Namen "The Chronicles Pt. II" und sollte von Euch allen selbstverständlich zeitnah erworben werden. Wer leicht folkig beeinflußten Power Metal mit Konzeptcharakter und verschiedenen Sängern mag, ist hier gut beraten. Hörns up!  http://www.elvenpath.com
LAS CASAS VIEJAS -  “GOUL/H “
Genre: Post Metal / Black Metal
Label: Alerta Antifascista Records
Erst in diesem Jahr gegründet, sind LAS CASAS VIEJAS schon 2017 einer der Geheimtipps unter den Newcomern. Das Sextett aus Deutschland und Österreich setzt auf ihrem Debütalbum auf eine anspruchsvolle, nicht einfach in Schubladen einzuordnende Mixtur: Post Metal und Post Rock, Black Metal, Sludge und Doom Metal vereint die Band zu einer von der Atmosphäre lebenden Klanglandschaft. Konzeptuell stellt „goule/H“ sogenannte Nicht-Orte gegenüber – nicht ausschließlich im anthropologischen Sinne nach Marc Auge. Viel mehr geht es LAS CASAS VIEJAS um die konstruierten urbanen Räume, als Moloch oder Industriestandpunkt, in denen es größtenteils um Produktion und Konsum geht. Als Gegenpol wird auf „goule/H“ die Natur gestellt, die als Projektionsfläche und Sehnsuchtsort in einem kapitalistisch geprägten System beschrieben wird. 
 Musikalisch zeichnen LAS CASAS VIEJAS innerhalb ihres Klangbildes eine von Trostlosigkeit geprägte, erdrückende Stimmung, die immer wieder durch wohldosierte Melodien durchbrochen wird. Das Konzept geht auf und der Hörer pendelt zwischen den Extremen, aus zermürbendem Grau hin zur farbenfrohen, erhabenen Schönheit – ein Album zwischen erschütternder Resignation und tröstlichen, sehnsuchtsvollen Momenten. Dabei zeigen die sechs Musiker_innen, dass sie sich von genrespezifischen Grenzen weitestgehend fernhalten und der Kunst Raum zur Entfaltung bieten.
 „goule/H“ kann ab sofort vorbestellt werden:  http://doomrock.com/Musik/LP/Las-Casas-Viejas-Goule-H-2xLP-2-Versionen::1554.html

BLACKLIST LTD. – “ STILL LIMITED”
Genre: Death Metal
Label: Kernkraftritter Records
Eine “Zusammenstellung von Personen, die von einer Behörde oder einer Organisation als verdächtig oder nicht vertrauenswürdig angesehen werden”. So lautet die Definition einer Blacklist. Diese Definition trifft aber im eigentlichen Sinne so gar nicht auf Blacklist Ltd. zu.
Es handelt sich zwar durchaus um „eine Zusammenstellung von Personen“, diesem Quintett kann man allerdings sehr wohl vertrauen. Dies gilt vor allem für Fans von modernem und groovigem Metal, denn genau diesen spielen Blacklist Ltd. schon seit ihrer Gründung 2004. Seitdem hat die Band drei Vertrauensbeweise in Form von einer EP und zwei Alben veröffentlicht, die auf viel Gegenliebe stießen. 
 Auf dem neuen Longplayer “still limited” wird viel Wert auf harte, kompakte und eingängige Arrangements gelegt. Die melodische Seite kommt auch nicht zu kurz und verhilft den Songs zu hohem Wiedererkennungswert. Dabei schafft die Band eine dynamische Basis für den Gesang, der darauf sein Spektrum von clean bis hin zu aggressiv voll entfaltet.
Aufgenommen und gemixt wurde „still limited“ in Goslar von Ronny Balnus und Tim Pascharat. Michael Schwabe übernahm das Mastering im renommierten Monoposto Tonstudio in Düsseldorf (u.a. Die Toten Hosen, Broilers…).
Mit dem neuen Album hat Blacklist Ltd. nun also einen weiteren Vertrauensbeweis im Gepäck. Dabei ist das Ziel, auf Festivals und Konzerten weiteres Vertrauen zu gewinnen, immer fest im Blick. Wirkt das verdächtig?

Metal Injection premiered an exclusive track of grind/crust/death band from Belgium, Marginal AT THIS LINK. Writing in his awesome grind feature, Christopher Luedke said this about the song -
"“Useless Scum” is a pure, straightforward d-beater. The punk drive kicks the track off like a locomotive and the band crush it straight through. Ninety-seconds of Discharge-infused rage with a crusty edge through and through. And the track is largely a single charge. Marginal give it a little switch up mid-way through, adding a nice heavy flavor that’ll make you wanna bang your head. It’s short, sweet and gets the job done right."

Unadulterated grindcore/crust is hard to come by. Even more so when it sounds this furious and organic. Too often gore and modern production values have tainted the original intent but MARGINAL sidestep all such demands and deliver pure music seething with rage and aggression and for all the right reasons. 'Total Destruction' is the soundtrack for this age when standing up to unfair governance, racism and corruption is imperative. Their hard-hitting lyrics are perfectly channelled through music that has its roots in the early days of this style, when bands like DISCHARGE, NAPALM DEATH, AMEBIX, EXTREME NOISE TERROR, etc. were shaping the sound of defiance. MARGINAL step up the to plate with aplomb and deliver what's needed in this era - scathing, visceral and raw as fuck grind/crust that's uncompromising and deadly.

Ukrainian ethnic black metallers HETMAN have set December 1st, 2017 as the release date for their upcoming opus "SEWN FROM THE ASHES BOOK", which will be released through Svarga Music.
Founded in 2006 by Oleksii “Cerberos” Bondarenko, the band's musical and ideological concept was based on worldwide classic ethnic literature, but of course with a good influence of local Ukrainian one. 
 HETMAN (orig. ГЕТЬМАН) is an history ridden band, a one-man project to be more precise, crafting the musician's blend of folkish and pagan-influenced Black Metal, which cannot easily be compared to any common categories. Some flute melodies here and there, some doom elements, acoustic guitars and a lot of epic heaviness add up to a heroic, glorifying magnum opus of Ukrainian heritage and culture. HETMAN aims at a future for nature and living beings by reminding them of what is really worth it: people caring for each other, loving the homeland and developing it.
This is “Sewn from the Ashes Book” – HETMAN's third album soon to be released on Svarga Music.
Tracklist
1. The Gateway [Брама]
2. The Seventh Heaven [Сьоме Небо]
3. How quite on Earth! How quite!.. [Як Тихо На Землі! Як Тихо!..]
4. The pile of soil [Грудочка Землі]
5. Remember who we are [Пам'ятай хто ми]
6. Touch the stones in the steppe [Доторкнись докаміння в степу]
7. The proud word [Горде Слово]
8. To the heart of everyone [В серце кожного…]

Unmatched Brutality Records is back and the label is putting out the new release of LIMBSPLITTER which has members of EMBALMER, NECROTIC DISGORGEMENT, REGURGITATION and others. It's one of the best releases I've heard in the style of late.  
LIMBSPLITTER (US) - 'CHLOROFORM COCKTAIL'
Genre
- Brutal Death Metal/Grind
Release Date - November 14th, 2017
Record Label - Unmatched Brutality Records (US)

Signed to the legendary label Unmatched Brutality Records run by Jamie of the resurrected band BRODEQUIN, LIMBSPLITTER make the most of it and release a devastating album in the style. Unlike the monotonous ultra brutal death metal bands, LIMBSPLITTER give us a fairly eclectic mix of what this style stands for and then some. Featuring current and former members of notable bands such as EMBALMER, NECROTIC DISGORGEMENT and REGURGITATION, the sickness quotient is very high but hasn't supplanted great musicianship. The song structures are unpredictable and rife with delectable grooves and intense riffing that's matched with mind-boggling drumming. It's a rare thrill to sink your teeth into this album because it's not only challenging but also very enjoyable.

Polish black/death act ANIMA DAMNATA are streaming their third full-length album via No Clean Singing. NEFARIOUS SEED GROWS TO BRING FORTH SUPREMACY OF THE BEAST is scheduled for a 1 November 2017 release through Godz ov War Productions and Malignant Voices and it will be available in CD, 12” LP and digital download formats.  
Stream the album:  http://www.nocleansinging.com/2017/10/23/an-ncs-album-premiere-and-a-review-anima-damnata-nefarious-seed-grows-to-bring-forth-supremacy-of-the-beast/
The album is going to be exclusively premiered during the Polish leg of the Abhorrent Desecration Tour 2017 where Anima Damnata will be supporting Black Witchery, Possession and Nyogthaeblisz.
Nefarious Seed Grows to Bring Forth Supremacy of the Beast was engineered and produced by M. (Mgła). The cover art and additional illustrations were created by Mar.A  Artworks, and the logo was designed by Christophe Szpajdel.
Regarding the new album, the band comment
"The "Nefarious Seed..." was meant to be more intense and overwhelming than our previous releases. It is like a demon sitting on your chest, taking your breath away. Although it is more mature and less chaotic, it strikes with greater precision at the foundations of extreme metal music. This album is rather self-inspired; however, some influences of bands like  Deicide, Sarcofago and Morbid Angel may be audible. The lyrical concept is mostly set upon Promethean values, the inner strength driven by the darkest visions, and the impending end of all religions. The production of the album follows the pattern set on Scott Burns' early works, but it has been enriched with foul miasma. The "Nefarious  Seed..." completes our rapturous pentalogy dedicated to the Horned Lord. There is a bad moon on the rise, and the future is dark."

Death metal supergroup DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN have assembled a new album that’s filthier and crustier than ever before. Sounding massive, Rogga Johansson has created his best music for the band yet, with Dave Ingram being in absolute top form throughout. Both members have put out highly successful albums in Paganizer and Ursinne respectively this year, not to mention the sensational Echelon release where they joined forces again.
Dave Ingram states, “Getting Down Among The Dead Men signed to Transcending Obscurity Records was the ideal move for myself and Rogga, since we both have bands already with this great label (Ursinne for me, Paganizer for Rogga, and Echelon jointly.) This is yet another notch in our respective bullet belts, and we are proud to bring the third Down Among The Dead Men album ‘…AND YOU WILL OBEY ME’ to the world via Transcending Obscurity Records, one of the most hardworking labels on the scene.”
Rogga Johansson adds, “I just wanna riff, and riffing is what Down Among The Dead Men is all about. Riffing and the immense vocals of the legend himself David Ingram. So we did a new album, and its gonna blow you away, as its a really, really good one! And who better to release it than proven media mogul Kunal Choksi with his Transcending Obscurity? Well no one else at all. I’m utterly proud of this album, and how we release it, and I hope that anyone that needs some dirty deathly crust in their lives will agree to just that too.”
Transcending Obscurity Records owner Kunal Choksi states, “It’s a continued honour to work with legends Rogga Johansson and David Ingram. Down Among The Dead Men have been one of my favourites and I was blown away after listening to their new album. It’s crusty as fuck and crushing as they’ve ever been. I’m sure this will be very well received and it’s great to have the support of both the gentlemen who have been very kind and cooperative all along. Both have been in phenomenal form too, what with their new albums of Paganizer and Ursinne (even Echelon) receiving an overwhelming response. This has been a great signing for the label so far and their new album will definitely be one of the highlights of 2018.”

Italian black metal cult SELVA ROSSA was born from the idea of creating a testimony of the medieval, esoteric and mystic roots of the territory of Bologna. Einzl & Diasper of dark ambient act DIM ARCANA felt the inspiration to pay homage to their city and began to build the basic concept. SELVA ROSSA was the title that Bologna was referred to, during the middle ages, due to its appearance of an intricate maze of towers and conspiracies, for which the austere and violent aspect reflects in the basis of the music. The debut album Ire Ad Patres is the first of a trilogy. Three albums, a single concept : Medieval Italian conpiracies.

FRAGARAK (INDIA) - 'A SPECTRAL OBLIVION'
Gatefold 8-Panel Digipak CD / T-shirt / Digital
Genre - Experimental Death Metal
Release Date - October 30th, 2017
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity India (sub-label)
For fans of - OPETH, EDGE OF SANITY, AMORPHIS, HYPOCRISY, DEMONSTEALER, RUDRA
Ambitious Indian band FRAGARAK from New Delhi have come up with an album of epic proportions. Featuring Louis Rando of IMPIETY on drums, they've fabricated elaborate songs that are both atmospheric and suspenseful. Their first album was groundbreaking in its vision, but with 'A Spectral Oblivion' they've truly proved their worth. This is a statement of sorts that bands from this part of the world too can come up with music that's original. Though steeped in classic death metal, they've done well to expand upon that style and add their own aura of mysticism and intrigue. Albums like these probably won't ever be replicated, but there's enough material here to last a while.

Supratim Sen: Vocals 
Kartikeya Sinha: Bass, Clean Vocals

EVILFEAST -  “ ELEGIES OF THE STELLAR WIND “
... Snowfall, trees wrapped in delicate white, swirling winds blow and wipe out ones sight after a few steps. Glimmering full moon, the forest eternally, yet resplendent. A silent sentinel has returned. "Elegies of the Stellar Wind" marks the 5th full-length for Poland's epic one-man Black Metal outfit Evilfeast. On the successor to 2011`s lowded, 'Wintermoon Enchantment,' sole member GrimSpirit hasn`t changed much on the band`s majestic formula. Sprawling, epic keyboard arrangements paired with cold and harsh walls of guitars and dedicated vocals whispering of old times and solitarity. Unfolding its layers track by track, the album unlocks a dripping atmosphere. At times freezing in solitude, at others resolute melodic with choral pillars. Enhanced like never before,these elegies reach an almost monumental peak.
But there is also something beyond the surface of a much dedicated 90`s black metal record. Over 60 almost time traveling minutes, the eerieness of a construction that seems to remove the listener from its usual aural sphere and what dwells around, away from the urban life and being. This new output seems to weave all elements and melodies together into a texture of essential black metal to surpass the longest of nights.

 "A Universal Emptiness" is a 38:39 minute apocalyptic journey. Sweeping synth and organ soundscapes lead you eerily, through a dark thunderous wall of sound. With thick brutal guitars at the core, it's rhythmic foundation is dragged angrily along by layered bass and powerful booming drums. All the while baleful roars and ghostly wales round out this bleak, crushingly dynamic, full length offering.

NewEngland Industrial Metal Duo INVERTIA return with THE CRIMSON SCREEN VOL. 1, the band's first in a series of EPs that are thematically-based on the early days of horror films. The EP will, most appropriately, be released on October 31. The EP is streaming in its entirety at https://invertia.bandcamp.com/album/the-crimson-screen-vol-1
While retaining the relentlessness and devastation that has plagued humanity throughout the years, the band has found new inspiration from the moving picture. A lyrical detour, the manner in which those early days of horror are interpreted sees the band heading down a very dark path; a crooked, detoured path into an abysmal whirlwind...
The EP arrives on the heels of 2016's  The Biddings of Tryants  full-length, the band's independently-released third album. It was preceded by 2014's  Another Scheme of the Wicked (released on Ohm Resistance). The band self-released its self-titled debut album in 2013.
Track Listing:
1. Lykanthropos
2. Cast No Shadow
3. Face on His Face
4. Created from Cadavers 
Dave Coppola - Guitars, Bass, FX, Samples
Tim Winson - Drums, Programming, FX, Keyboards

Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide -  we're happy to present you with the release of THE ANCIENT PLAGUE, the debut EP  by Californian-based black/death war machine MALEFIC LEVITATION.
Formed in 2016, and hailing from Fresno, CA, Malefic Levitation's debut is an incinerating onslaught of bestial and pestilent war metal that is shockingly savage and unremittingly barbaric as it unfolds its malevolent spires upon the listener. Bringing together the structurally imploding and collapsing chaos of black/death stalwarts like Revenge, Archgoat, and Diocletian, and the most vile forms of grindcore, Malefic Levitation have created an instant classic in the realm of the most overwhelmingly violent strains of extreme metal, and birthed a sonic abomination whose feral ferocity is matched solely by its unforgiving cruelty. Thees meager twenty minutes of surreal sonic hostility may just be the beginning of a new legacy....
Today CVLT Nation premiered the first track from the work titled Savage Hunter - calling The Ancient Plague "twenty minutes of inconceivably deranged and fucking barbaric black/death metal". You can check out the feature and song
 HERE.
The Ancient Plague is slated to be released on November 24 2017 by Sentient Ruin in the USA and by Dawnbreed Records in the EU as a limited edition cassette tape + digital . The two releases are different, with the art for the US tape printed with black offset ink on red heavy cardstock, and the EU art printed with silver ink on black heavy cardstock. Both versions can be now pre-ordered on our store or Bandcamp.
Sincerely, Sentient Ruin.
BLACK ALTAR has made a videoclip for the "Tophet" song from the forthcoming split with BEASTCRAFT which will be released for XXI Anniversary of Black Altar. The scenes for the video were filmed in England, Sweden, Norway, Poland and USA.

Italian Death Metal/Deathcore stalwarts THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY have released a lyric video for "The Theory of Shadows," a track from forthcoming album STYGIAN. Check it out at  https://youtu.be/rtrr1T43eOE
Innerstrength Records will release Stygian on November 24. Pre-orders are available at:   https://innerstrengthrecords.bandcamp.com/album/the-modern-age-slavery-stygian
Coming almost four years since the release of critically acclaimed 2013 release Requiem for Us All (Pavement), the level-jumping blast of intensity on the band's Innerstrength debut is the result of miles logged and the already dynamic songwriting honed to a fine point. 
The band has released the following statement about the new album:
"With this new album we tried to make another step forward in the evolution of our sound: what you'll hear it's a quite obscure atmosphere delivering a sullen and evil experience, yet keeping the heaviness of the death metal matrix that marked our music in the previous albums. The lyrics are all inspired by a common theme, from which the name "Stygian" and the correlated artwork come from, discussing the questionable matter of the human evolution leading men to a slow but inevitable mutation into a being that lost his mind and compassion devoured by greediness and will to power. All the pieces of the puzzle are perfectly pondered to create an album made of passion, of anger, and real emotions. This is the The Modern Age's album!"
A lyric video for "The Reprisal Within" is available at  https://youtu.be/n93ubas2XKE
Formed in 2007, The Modern Age Slavery (TMAS) rapidly gained unanimous critical acclaim from the international press receiving the "Demo of the Month" award in Rock Hard Germany. The release of the debut albumDamned to Blindness via Napalm Records in 2008 delivered an aggressive sound made of grinding blast beats, merciless brutal vocals and slaughtering rapid fire double bass patterns. 
Thanks to positive audience and press response, TMAS extensively toured around Europe both as headliners and as support act, like joining the "Evisceration Plague Tour" featuring CANNIBAL CORPSE, DYING FETUS & OBSCURA and the "Doomsday X Tour" featuring MALEVOLENT CREATION and VOMITORY. The band also appeared on shows with FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, SEPULTURA, DECAPITATED, SUICIDE SILENCE and many more. 
The release of the second album Requiem For Us All via Pavement Entertainment in 2013 pushed their death metal war machine one step forward again, this time with a fierce mix of blazingly fast drumming, technical riffing, epic atmospheres, and crushing groove. Nominated best metal album of 2013 by Axl Rosenberg at metalsucks.net, it brought the band on tour again with bands as GORGOROTH, VITAL REMAINS, HYPOCRISY, plus many gigs on the national soil. 
In the middle of 2016 there was a line-up change, one guitar player and the drummer were permanently substituted by already known names of the Italian underground metal scene. After some concerts testing the new members TMAS started writing material for the new album, yet never stopping the live activity as testified by the Ukrainian tour in February 2017 and the coheadlining gig with INGESTED at Metalcon Festival in The Hague in May. Two months later eight songs were ready so the band entered the studio and finished all the recordings in July. The end of the year 2017 will see the return of the deathsters on the market with powerful, violent and intense riffing, and atmosphere

Hi! Ukrainian Black metal band THREE EYES OF THE VOID looking for label deal to release album "THE MOMENT OF STORM", you can check it here -https://soundcloud.com/threeeyesofthevoid/sets/the-moment-of-storm/s-13KqJ
Or I can send you mp3 archive if you want.Please send your offers if interested. Thank you!
Project was founded by Dmytro Kvashnin (ex Balfor
https://www.facebook.com/balforofficial/) in the autumn of 2016.
The first demo was recorded in the winter of 2017 at the home studio in Kyiv, Ukraine. After coming up with the general music concept, it was decided to produce a record in a form of EP.
Alexander Kasiarum (Joncof  
https://www.facebook.com/Joncofy/) took part as a session musician to record the drums at his own studio in Kyiv, Ukraine.
Other instruments and vocals were performed by Dmytro Kvashnin and mixed at MuzProduction recording studio by Oleg Olgerd Rubanov in Lviv, Ukraine.
Lyrics theme has a deep personal but still rational expression of a frivolous interaction between individuals in a global social environment, which dramatically reflects in lost self identification as a living being.
"The Moment of Storm" is a collection of flowing thoughts which came to mind of one during observation of a nature and a dialog with a friend about the issue above.
The form of expression was borrowed from such works as "Human, All Too Human: A Book for Free Spirits" (Friedrich Nietzsche) and Republic (Plato).
Music expression is still fluid and has a definite influences of metal and classical composers as well.

A new dawn is approaching. BARSHASKETH and OUTRE join forces to release “SEIN / ZEIT” split this November via Third Eye Temple and Blut&Eisen Prod. The artwork was created by Mentalporn.
LP pre-orders are available now through Third Eye Temple in three colour variations: white (label exclusive), marble white/black and regular black version. Pre-order here:  www.store.thirdeyetemple.com
Release date and audio samples will be revealed soon.
This conceptual split takes inspiration from the work of Martin Heidegger, more specifically from the 1927 book Sein & Zeit (“Being and Time”). This seminal philosophical text, which attempts to get to grips with the meaning of being, provides the basis for an exploration of fundamental questions that underpin our understanding of human existence, with each band taking one of the two main themes.
SEIN (Being) by BARSHASKETH concerns creating one’s own purpose in a world without any objective truth or meaning. It deals with the process of pushing further and further inward to discover true will, sacrificing solace and unnecessary comforts along the way. As with all Barshasketh material, there is an element of facing and mastering darker aspects of the self in order to strengthen the spirit. The concept of Sein is that after facing such parts of the self, and pushing further introspectively beyond return, true will and purpose will be discovered.
ZEIT (Time) by OUTRE explains that the Now, the Past and the Future are all one. We exist in one consolidated frame of past events and future points that are about to become. Our Being is expressed through the time that flows through us. No one was and no one shall be. We are temporary.
As the Being. As the Time.
Track List:
A1: Barshasketh – Being [7:45]
B1: Outre – Time [5:38]
B2: Outre – Only True Believers (Armaggedda cover) [3:31]
About Barshasketh:
BARSHASKETH was formed in 2007 as a solo-project by Krigeist with the intention of creating pure black metal, intentionally free of genre cross-pollination: second-wave blasphemy re-imagined and reinterpreted through extensive use of layering and counterpoint. After two well-received demos via Wolfsvuur Records, the debut album Defying the Bonds of Cosmic Thralldom emerged in 2010. The trio of GM (guitars and vocals), BH (drums) and Krigeist recorded the second full-length, Sitra Achra, released in 2013 through Todestrieb Records. After recruiting bassist BB on bass, the lineup was complete, and BARSHASKETH recorded two split EPs in quick succession. The band went on to record a third full-length, Ophidian Henosis, at the infamous Necromorbus Studio in Stockholm which was released in 2015 through Blut&Eisen Productions and W.T.C Prod to much acclaim. Following the release, MK replaced BH on drums and the band returned to Necromorbus Studio to record the Sein&Zeit (being and time) split with Outre (Poland). Sein & Zeit showcases the evolution of the band to date and is undoubtedly the most complex and atmospheric release to date.
About Outre:
OUTRE has become an established trademark in European black metal. “Sein / Zeit” is their first release in two years since their highly acclaimed debut album "Ghost Chants" which put Outre’s mark on European black metal in 2015. “Ghost Chants” was well-received by both the metal press and fans, having received plenty of positive reviews and was featured on end-of-year lists worldwide. “Sein / Zeit” sees the band evolve their debut album work, while at the same time increasing the level of intensity and aggression. The band will embark on their first full European tour in November 2017 with Ulcerate.
OUTRE on “Sein / Zeit” are:
Damian Igielski - guitars
Krzysztof Sojda - guitars
Marcin L.th Radecki - bass
Maciej Pelczar – drums
Vocals arranged and performed by TMK

SIGN OF CAIN- “ TO BE DRAWN AND TO DROWN”
Making Music is a form of communication. That is why musicians of all shades always find a way to express themselves together. Sign Of Cain consists of well-known names like Tomer Hasenfratz (guitar, Backing Vocals: Viscera Trail), Tomy Minas (guitar: The Sin), Tuval Refaeli (drums: Viscera Trail, Equilibrium), David Mauritzon (bass: Razorrape) und none other than Tomas Lindberg (vocals: At The Gates, The Lurking Fear). We are very honored to announce that we will put out the first sign of life of this project 18 years after its initial spark in 1999: „To Be Drawn And To Drown“.
Old school death metal and doom full of melancholy and sorrowful melodies, which pave their way through painful and repulsive harmonies. The vocals that howl from the depth of despair grabbing your insides while the uncompromising drums pound with wrath and caress every emotion put out on this record.
http://www.apostasyrecords.com/
We’re excited to announce we inked a deal with supergroup VESSEL OF LIGHT, formed by Dan Lorenzo (HADES, NON-FICTION, THE-CURSED) and Nathan Opposition (ANCIENT VVISDOM).
“For the last decade since I recorded The Cursed cd (with Bobby Blitz from Overkill)” Lorenzo said “I haven't really felt the desire to jam music with anybody. I've had offers to join a few bands, but I've always considered myself more of a songwriter than a "real" musician. I never wanted to join somebody else's band. A few months ago that all changed when I heard the songs "The Opposition" and "Deathlike" by the band Ancient VVISDOM.”
Nathan Opposition said: "Lorenzo and I became friends due to my inability to not be susceptible to flattery. Turns out he's a really cool guy who writes awesome riffs too. Randomly one day I ask him about the band we are starting in joking fashion. I guess it was the right timing and the right person because we immediately agreed we should actually start a project. Before I knew it he was sending me CDs of riffs and I had lyrics flowing like a faucet."
The track listing of songs recorded by the duo are:
Where My Garden Grows
Dead Flesh and Bone
Meant To Be
Descend Into Death
Vessel of Light
Living Dead To The World
On the record deal: “Although we conceded to the fact that signing to a label was improbable, I sent music to one of my former record labels and an Italian label I found that I thought was right for us: Argonauta Records. When Gero from Argonauta replied I knew it was the right call. The right label. Somebody who knew and respected my past and Nathan's currency. I am so happy that thanks to Argonauta the world will soon hear the magic Nathan and I have captured with Vessel Of Light.”
VESSEL OF LIGHT debut EP will be released on CD/DD and available from November 3rd, 2017. A lyric video will be posted by the end of this month.

"BLACK PHELGM", the first SOYUZ BEAR's album is out!
Genre : Sludge Doom
Label : Zanjeer Zani Productions/Necrocosm
SOYUZ BEAR was formed in 2012 with a will of sharing some imagery of human depravity throughout violent music output. Music quickly turned into raw sludge material and a set to be played in local shows was writen with strong influence of alcohol, EYEHATEGOD and IRON WITCH.
The first demo was then recorded in december 2014 and was released in 2016 with Zanjeer Zani Productions. With more live and writing experience, SOYUZ BEAR moved deeper in its universe and focuced on some more precise aspects of it. The first tracks of the album "Black Phlegm" were then writen. Alongside the process of writing, the themes were digging deeper and deeper into the lightless abyss of violence and murder.
SOYUZ BEAR is now the hammer shot behind your neck, the crawling weak that sucks your life until you crawl yourself down. There is nothing good to take out of this. This is the last gasp of the Men that die of hunger and thirst altogether. Album "Black Phlegm" was recorded in december 2016.

Die Thüringer Death Metaller ASPHODELOS unterschreiben bei Black Sunset und werden ihr kommendes Album noch in diesem Herbst veröffentlichen!
Im Jahr 2010 aus der Vorgängerband HATRED WITHIN hervorgegangen, widmet sich das Quintett dem klassischen Death Metal skandinavischer Prägung. Mit dem lange erwarteten Debut Album zeigen die Jungs, dass sie bereit sind den nächsten Schritt zu gehen. Wir freuen uns außerordentlich euch diese Platte schon bald um die Ohren hauen zu können.
Den Hörer erwartet ein derbes Brett mit hämmernden Riffs und einer Dampfwalzenartigen Grundstimmung, in welcher das thematische Spektrum von den Abgründen der menschlichen Seele und einem charakteristischem Einschlag Griechischer Mythologie mit einem Hauch Melancholie erstklassig umgesetzt ist. 
Als ersten Vorgeschmack auf den Silberling gibts einen ersten Albumteaser auf dem MDD Youtube Kanal! Mehr Infos schon bald!

Der Herbst hält Einzug, die Tage werden kürzer, das Wetter grauer und die Stimmung im Allgemeinen auch. Gegen die Launen der Natur kann leider niemand etwas ausrichten - aber NOIZGATE Records hat ein tolles Mittel gegen den aufkeimenden Winterblues: 'ASHES', das neue Album von GRAI!
Lebhaft und nachdenklich, rasant und gefühlvoll - die Musik von GRAI (dt. 'Rabenschrei') steckt voller Kontraste! Die Sechsertruppe aus der Republik Tatarstan im Osten Russlands steht für eine facettenreiche Mischung aus filigranen Folkloreklängen und druckvollem Metal.
Mit 'ASHES' erscheint das vierte Studioalbum von GRAI am 01.12.2017 (VÖ) exklusiv auf CD, Vinyl und natürlich in digitaler Form bei NOIZGATE Records.
In elf nagelneuen Songs kombiniert das russische Sextett auf 'ASHES' in gewohnter Form klassische Metal-Elemente wie bretternde E-Gitarrenriffs, fette Drums und harte Growls mit traditionellen Folklore-Instrumenten und -melodien und klarem, oft mehrstimmigem weiblichem Harmoniegesang. Dennoch stellt
das neue Album eine musikalische Weiterentwicklung dar: 'Die mehrstimmigen Gesangs- und Flötenmelodien, sowie die Verwendung weiterer Blas- und Folkinstrumente in Kombination mit konventionelleren Rockinstrumenten sind ein Markenzeichen von GRAI. Im Vergleich zum Vorgänger MLADA von 2014 haben wir uns für ASHES jedoch von komplett anderen Bands und Genres inspirieren lassen. So haben viele neue Einflüsse Eingang in unsere Musik
gefunden. Der deutlichste Unterschied zum Vorgängeralbum ist sicherlich der wesentlich leichtere, vielleicht auch zugänglichere Sound von ASHES', so Gitarrist Ruzel.
Die russischen Texte behandeln Themen wie die Erinnerung an Vergangenes, tragische Geschichten über (fehlende) Liebe und das Leben. Dabei lassen die Sechs nicht nur ihre persönlichen Erlebnisse, sondern auch Geschichten aus der russischen Kultur in ihre Lyrics einfließen. 'ASHES' ist ein Werk voller Herzblut und ein
Stück russische Seele: Genau das Richtige für kalte, düstere Wintertage!

Mit "...And Then The Stones Began To Speak" schicken NERO DOCTRINE einen weiteren Titel ihres bald erscheinenden Albums "II - INTERITUS" in den Ring und beweisen nach ihrer ersten deutschsprachigen Singleauskopplung
"Doch Die Lichter Sind Kalt" einmal mehr, dass sich modernes Songwriting und traditionelle schwedische Zutaten nicht automatisch ausschließen, sondern perfekt ergänzen. Mit brachialen Blastbeats, verspielten Bassakzenten und hoch melodischen Leadgitarren bieten Nero Doctrine einen Überblick ihrer musikalischen Palette und konkretisieren die Marschrichtung, die ab dem 01.12.17 vorgegeben wird.

"Worldwide Warfare" ist das dritte Album der Süddeutschen Death Metaller und wird am 27.10.2017 via Rising Nemesis Records erscheinen. Der Vorverkauf hat bereits begonnen und das Album kann hier vorbestellt werden:

Zeitgleich mit dem Release von "Worldwide Warfare" begeben sich NECROTTED auf die Straße und werden gemeinsam mit Parasite Inc. und Skeleton Pit folgende Städte in Schutt und Asche legen:
1. Worldwide
2. No War But Class War
3. Hunt Down The Crown
4. Vile Vermin
5. The Lost Ones
6. My Foray, Your Decay
7. Unity Front
8. Our Dominion
9. Babylon
10. Forlorn Planet
Nikita Kamprad (DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT) zum Album:
NECROTTED schaffen es in Punkto Brutalität, Tempo aber auch Groove von Album zu Album immer wieder einen draufzulegen! Gnadenloses Geknüppel trifft auf eingängige Hooks mit Message. Auf technisch stets hohem Niveau blastet man sich durch die kurzen aber umso knackigeren Songs. Auf jeden Fall ein Anwärter auf das brutalste Album des Jahres!
Julien (Benighted) über 'Worldwide Warfare':
‘Massive, brutal, fast, effective... The new NECROTTED is such a huge combination of everything which makes you break your neck! KILLER!’
Lenny (DUST BOLT) über 'Worldwide Warfare':
Schon lange nicht mehr hat sich Geballer so jung und gleichzeitig intelligent angehört! Im Vergleich zu allem Vorherigen haben Necrotted meiner Meinung nach eine ORDENTLICHE Schippe draufgelegt. Die Songs gehen straight in your face und haben gleichzeitig durchgehend - dem geilen Cover-Artwork entsprechend - eine apokalyptische Stimmung, die das Album so besonders und spannend macht. Gerade zur Zeit braucht es Metal-Bands, die politische Statements in ihren Songs setzen anstatt über Feen und Orks zu trällern und die den erhobenen Metal-Mittelfinger dabei durchgehend hochhalten. NECROTTED machen das. Geil!
Mick (Aversions Crown, Widow The Sea) über 'Worldwide Warfare':
Something heavy has been brewing in Germany. NECROTTED's 'Worldwide Warfare' is one of the must listen to albums for 2017!
ND (Excrementory Grindfuckers) über'Worldwide Warfare':
Heute rappelt‘s im Karton, aber mächtig. 'Worldwide Warfare' klingt saftig organisch und ist konsequent kompromisslos. Feinste Versohlung für jeden der Blasts zelebriert und noch reichlich zum Springen und Bangen dabei. Checkt die Boys unbedingt live aus, da werden die Songs mit viel Leidenschaft und Energie abgefeuert!
Micha (Walking Dead On Broadway) about 'Worldwide Warfare':
Herrliche Blast Beats mit einer guten Portion Slam. Sehr fettes Album, das alles niederwalzt, was sich ihm in den Weg stellt. Unbedingt reinhören!
Fabian (DESERTED FEAR) über 'Worldwide Warfare':
Die neue NECROTTED knallt, aber wie! Die Gitarren auf Sechshundertsechsundsechzig gedreht und Schlagzeuggewitter vom Feinsten, das alles aber ohne den Bogen zu überspannen oder sich stilistisch in eine Ecke drängen zu lassen. Bei der Produktion setzt man auf Bewährtes, zu Recht! Nikita Kamprad schafft es, den Jungs einen druckvollen, modernen Sound zu verpassen, der aber überraschend organisch und stets authentisch aus den Boxen scherbelt. In diesem Album steckt ganz viel Herzblut, Glückwunsch Jungs!

Bleibt besessen... Hallo Leute,  heute gibt es einen weiteren Faustschlag zu verdauen. Zwei völlig geniale Bands bereichern das Billing des kommenden Jahres. Lest selbst! Tickets gibt es hier: www.party-san.de
Eine echte Legende kommt! EXCITER - das ist Speed Metal in seiner knallahrten Vollendung, das ist Heavy-Metal-Historie, das sind massive Geschwindigkeits-Granaten mit jeder Menge Power und Riffkraft! Das kanadische Trio hat in seiner bewegten Geschichte wahre Klassikeralben erschaffen - u.a. "Heavy Metal Maniac", "Long Live The Loud" und "Violence And Force" - und wird aus dem Fundus dieser einzigartigen Werke eine brillante Setliste zusammenstellen! Nackenbrecher-Alarm!
Der Deibel kommt aus Belgien, in Gestalt dieser fanatischen Black-Thrash-Zusammenrottung, die seit ein paar Jahren den pechschwarzen Underground unsicher macht. Der Ruf, eine starke Liveband zu sein, eilt POSSESSION voraus, und sowohl die ersten Singles und EPs der Truppe als auch das vor einigen Monaten veröffentlichte Debütalbum "Exorkizein" beinhalten ausreichend hervorragende Stücke für einen zünftigen Totalabriss. Jeder, der den 2014er Underground-Hit "Anneliese" kennt, weiß wovon die Rede ist. Absolute Finsternis!

EXARSIS – “ NEW WAR ORDER”
Label:    MDD Records
Release:  20. Oktober  2017
Format:   CD Audio
Genre:     Thrash Metal
The Return Of Thrash Metal! Classic Old School Thrash Metal seems to be experiencing its renaissance these days. The Greeks of Exarsis, however, are among the representatives of the genre who have kept the flag of Thrash Metal up even in times when it seemed far less popular in public perception. Since their 2010 demo, the guys are on the road and have released two highly-acclaimed albums with "The Brutal State" and "The Human Project" in 2013 and 2015. These have led to concerts and tours with bands such as Suicide Silence, Fuel By Fire, Anthrax, Judas Priest,- or as now on the occasion of the release of the new album with Onslaught and Artillery brought.
With "New War Order", Exarsis release an album which lets every Thrash Metal Maniac click his tongue. These Greeks do not stingy with neckbreaker riffs and dizzying solos, which should lead every fan of this genre to create some space in his record collection between Overkill, Nuclear Assault, Vio-Lence an Anthrax
 "New War Order" was recorded at the D Studios in Athens and mixed and mastered by Mike Karpathiou. Like on their previous albums, Andrei Bouzikov (Municipal Waste, Toxic Holocsaust, Cannabis Corpse etc) was in charge of the artwork.

IN-DEFILADE – “ELUDE”
Genre: Militant Blackened Death Metal
For fans of: Morbid Angel | Nile | Hate Eternal |Marduk
The words are taken from ‘Will To Survive’, the opening track of In-Defilade’s second album, Elude. In those few words there lies a hint of the supreme, imperious, unassailable power that radiates from every note of this staggering release. The music moves through an array of moods and tempos, from the insidious slithering dread of ‘The Collapse’ to the tumultuous torrent of riffs and indefatigable blast beat assaults of ‘Fearing The Worst’, but at all times there is that sense of ultimate confidence, the unshakeable self knowledge that In-Defilade stand tall, subservient to none.
In-Defilade was first created by Jon Vesano, the man whose mighty bass and vocal roar can be heard on Nile’s revered Annihilation Of The Wicked and In Their Darkened Shrines albums and who fronted the dark, underground treasure of Dark Moon. For the first In-Defilade album, Rulers Of Famine, Vesano was joined by Vesperian Sorrow’s Subverseraph and guitarist Shawn Lee Bozarth – known for his work with legendary thrash outfits Defiance and Ulysses Siren. Before work commenced on Elude Bozarth stood down from the ranks, but Vesano and Subverseraph ensnared drummer Erik Schultek (ex-Narcotic Wasteland) and the resulting chemistry is terrifying in its potency. Vesano’s vocals have never sounded so venomous as they do on Elude, blending brutality with a biting clarity as he enunciates his disdain for the weakness of humanity. The thunderous barrage of the rhythm section is soul-shaking, overwhelming, intimidating in its sheer unfathomable power and the riffs are a firestorm that fuses complexity with immediacy, a nuclear explosion of bewildering velocity, yet rife with barbed, inescapable hooks. Then scything through the maelstrom come the howling chaos of the solos, supplied by guest, friend and comrade in arms, Dallas Toler-Wade (ex-Nile, Narcotic Wasteland).
In-Defilade are coming and you have a choice to make – ride the storm with them, or be torn asunder as it passes over you. Elude is death metal of inhuman power and it will not be denied.
Line-up:
Jon Vesano – Vocals/Guitar
Subverseraph – Bass/Backing Vocals
Erik Schultek – Drums
Also featuring:
Dallas Toler-Wade – Guest guitar solos
Neska – Guest vocals

The forthcoming self-titled split release from Japan's RETORTION TERROR and Minnesota's INVIDIOSUS is now streaming in its entirety. Horror Pain Gore Death Productions will release the split on October 20. In the meantime, get your grind on below!
http://www.nocleansinging.com/2017/10/16/an-ncs-split-premiere-retortion-terror-and-invidiosus/
CD Pre-order:  http://www.horrorpaingoredeath.com/store/hpgd156.html
Digital pre-order:   https://hpgd.bandcamp.com/album/split-6
Horror Pain Gore Death Productions presents this intense split album between Japan's grinding maniacs Retortion Terror and US Death/Grind destroyers Invidiosus! Retortion Terror make their HPGD debut with 5 tracks of raw, blistering grindcore straight from Kyoto Japan. Featuring legendary guitarist Takafumi Matsubara (Gridlink, Mortalized Grindcore) and a mysterious lineup of international grinders, Retortion Terror pull no punches on this split. In 2014, Takafumi suffered a brain infection that made it nearly impossible for him to play guitar, and many thought Gridlink's "Longhena" might be Takafumi's last record. Fortunately, he has beaten those odds; his recovery has been nothing short of miraculous, and he has resumed playing guitar and doing karate in spite of what the doctors told him. This is Takafumi's first release since that final Gridlink album, having overcome some impossible odds to return to playing grindcore. His work with RETORTION TERROR shows that he has no signs of slowing down or stopping anytime soon." This is an absolute must listen for fans of Discordance Axis, Wormrot, Noisear and Insect Warfare.
Invidiosus also make their Horror Pain Gore Death debut on this devastating split release! Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Invidiosus perform vicious, anxiety-driven Death/Grind that is absolutely punishing. Invidiosus features current and former members of Amiensus, Rottenness, Violence Condoned, In Defence and Atrum Inritus. The band has spent the last 3 years relentlessly touring Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Bolivia and the USA, with an upcoming tour of Japan and South Korea (including a festival performance at Asakusa Deathfest). Blending elements of Grindcore, Death Metal and Thrash, Invidiosus brings their destructive, eclectic style out in full force for their HPGD premiere! Essential for fans of Cephalic Carnage, Phobia, Pig Destroyer, and Brutal Truth.
You can also check out promo videos for "Cultural Indifference" and "River of Ignorance" from INVIDIOSUS and RETORTION TERROR, respectively.

THE 3RD ATTEMPT ANNOUNCE DETAILS OF SOPHOMORE FULL-LENGTH ALBUM :  Leaving a long-established, and very successful, band in order to scratch the creative itch and get out of a rut is always a gamble, but it's a gamble that veteran musicians and former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION) and BloodPervertor (OPUS FORGOTTEN) had no qualms in taking, and, with the second album from the 3RD ATTEMPT, they have proved that they were right to do so.
Titled "EGOCIDAL PATH", and set for release on Dark Essence Records on the 1st December, the 3RD ATTEMPT's sophomore offering not only builds on the foundation laid by its predecessor, it also leaves it far behind.  There's still Thrash, there's still Black'n'Roll, and there's no doubting the presence of that Black Metal vibe.  But there's a whole lot more besides, because "Egocidal Path" exudes the confidence that comes from a band whose members have gelled and know that they have succeeded in creating something loud, energetic and brash, intermingled with subtle touches that surprise. It has a variety that keeps it fresh and interesting, and showcases  the undoubted skills and experience of each and every one of its members. 
Talking about the album, Tchort had this to say: 
"With "Egocidal Path" we take a huge leap towards the true sound and identity of the 3RD ATTEMPT. While our debut album "Born in Thorns" represented the CARPATHIAN FOREST era of our song writing, "Egocidal Path" is a newly written album that is more aggressive, tighter and in-your-face.  It also showcases the fantastic drumming skills of Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) and the vocal range and creativity of Ødemark, allowing the listener to slip into his personal universe of wrath, ego, human spite and the glory of suicide.
"Let us accompany you on the path to Hell!"
With artwork by the Brazilian artist Rafael Tavares, "Egocidal Path" will be available in CD, Digital and LP formats. 
Tracklisting :
1. Blood, Dope and Black N Roll
2. Into the Light
3. Reflections about Knives
4. Egocide
5. I’ll do it now
6. The Diciples
7. Black Metal Alchemist
8. The Oath
Fans will also be able to see much more of the  3RD ATTEMPT live on stage as the band has just signed an exclusive UK and European booking deal with the UK's Eradication Booking Agency.

Coming from Finland, with a french name, no doubt that CHEVALIER holds the scepter of a long inheritage. They play Heavy Speed Metal deeply anchored in the 80's tradition, while still not being a retro covering band. Far from stealing riffs here and there, CHEVALIER manage to create Heavy Metal hymns that awaken the true spirit.
Heavy Speed Metal anthems led by the strong female voice, filled with guitar leads and duels, supported by fast pounding rhythms, giving the shivers when come the choruses that create legendary Metal songs ! It's hard not to raise the fist and yell "Chevalier" or "Knights side by side, under the sceptre we fight" !
CHEVALIER gathers the best memories of bands like Running Wild, Mercyful Fate, and obviously the french glorious bands ADX, Sortilège or H-Bomb, while the female front singer brings back Acid in our hearts. Also the raw production of this release brings an unique atmosphere, that could only be compared to the early Master's Hammer works.
"A CALL TO ARMS" is now brought on CD by an unholy meeting of three labels : Metal Warning from Finland, Rock Stakk from Japan and Forgotten Wisdom Prod from France.
Not need to say how proud we are to welcome this french Speed Metal homage and releasing it under our banner !!

SAVAGE ANNIHILATION – “ QUAND S'ABAISSE LA CROIX DU BLASPHEME”
FOR FANS OF : Morbid Angel, Internal Suffering, Krisium
OVERVIEW :  Often mistakenly taken for the orthodox Death Metal band they can seem to sound like if not really paying attention to what they create, SAVAGE ANNIHILATION are a unique band pushing the envelope of their old-school influences to embark the listener into a world of their very own.
Lyrically, its gross. Its crude. Its raw. Its dismembered and grotesque. Musically, its brutal. Its heavy. Its violent… but theres far more than what the rotten eye can see: SAVAGE ANNIHILATION’s creations are all part of a global concept and its all about hopelessness and desperation.
Started fifteen years ago, the band took ten years to shape, define, re-define and re-shape their unique artistic approach and release their debut, “Cannibalisme, hérésie et autres sauvageries” (2012) and it took them five more years to come with the sequel, “Quands’abaisse la croix du blasphème“, going even further into their post-apocalyptic visions of a world beyond doomed.
Following the path started with its predecessor, the new album is total nihilism, pure heresy and blasphemy, gore beyond gore ; savage, annihilating but it’s first and foremost an artistic, conceptual story where salvation doesn’t exist
Fewer yet longer songs, all connected one to the other make “Quand s’abaisse la croix du blasphème” a tough listen, an oppressing experience and a challenge somehow, and when you think you will finally see the light at the end of the tunnel when you reach the last track of this nightmarish journey into gruesome horror (and few will be strong enough to survive such an unsustainable nauseating bad trip!), “Le tombeau de l’atrocité” featuring international opera singer Claire Motté again (she was already a guest on their debut), you’ll soon discover this beautiful moment of sublime grace is in fact the last spark of life into your eye before you die.
Welcome to your most fascinating nightmare.

MERCYLESS – “COLOURED FUNERAL “ [remastered reissue]
FOR FANS OF :   Atrocity ("Todessehnsucht"-era), Pestilence, Asphyx, Immolation… and Mercyless!
OVERVIEW :  What do you do when it's 1992 and your first album had such an impact as the cult "Abject Offerings" and you got offers by the likes of NUCLEAR BLAST, ROADRUNNER, METAL BLADE and so on? You choose the easy way and follow the trend, sign to one of these established labels and go at MORRISOUND, SUNLIGHT or UNISOUND studio to record "Abject Offerings, pt.2"? MERCYLESS don't.
Instead, they chose to sign with a young and hungry label, CENTURY MEDIA, go to a nearby studio (T&T) where only a handful of bands recorded yet (MASSACRA, SAMAEL...), go for a yet-to-become-superstar producer you know for his talent (Colin RICHARDSON, already behind "Abject Offerings") and you record your most brutal album, with more progressive elements and way heavier parts, with a strange mystic title and an even more enigmatic artwork. That's how you become a legendary band.
"Coloured Funeral" is that second full-length and it's been unavailable since decades, even though quickly followed bu many European tours with the likes of DEATH, GRAVE, UNLEASHED, TIAMAT, etc. CENTURY MEDIA never repressed it, nor did they released on vinyl but that time is now over since XENOKORP teamed with them to release an over-the-top quality reissue both on DigiPak CD and Gatefold vinyl, both remastered for their specific formats and both for the first time ever, eventually topping it all with the first ever "album artwork" line of merch!
Glory and Praise to You, AGRAZABETH, in the Depths of Hell !

Eigentlich hatte man ja dieses Wochenende fest geplant ,mal wieder auf nem Konzi aufzutauchen . Wie das scheiß Leben aber so spielt ,hat die Arbeit einen mal wieder einen fetten Strich durch die Rechnung gemacht .Oder lag‘s vielleicht doch daran ,dass gestern Freitag der 13’te war – keine Ahnung . Jedenfalls saß zwar der Frust nun verdammt tief ,aber im Endeffekt hat das dann doch auch irgendwie seine „positiven „ Seiten .Denn irgendwie muss man sich ja nun beschäftigen und was lag da näher ,sich mal intensiver auf den Stapel an Promos zu stürzen .Und so kann man Euch nun heute auch die absolut volle Ladung an brandneuem Material präsentieren ,welches vielleicht dafür sorgen könnte ,das in Eurem Portemonnaies bald wieder Ebbe herrschen wird .
FUNEBRE – “ CHILDREN OF THE SCORN” ( RE – RELEASE )
INFEST – „ADDICTED TO FLESH“

Nächste Woche gibt's dann hoffendlich genau so nen fetten Nachschlag in Sachen musikalischer Unterhaltung . Jetzt heißt es erst einmal ,die blutigen Ohren pflegen und vor allem geistig runterfahren ,um wenigstens noch die paar letzten Stunden vom Wochenende ohne Stress oder Nachzudenken ,genießen zu können .
DEADFREIGHT OF SOUL – “TORTURED PUPPETS”
Genre: Death Metal
Label: Kernkraftritter Records
Vertrieb: Alive
: 20.10.2017
Seit 2007 gibt sich die Band Deadfreight of Soul größte Mühe das Publikum für die Dauer ihres Bühnenspektakels den Alltag vergessen zu lassen. Die Jungs wissen um ihren Namen und dieser ist auch das erklärte Programm: Die kraftvoll und energiegeladen vorgetragene Musik lässt die Ängste und Sorgen, diese „Laster der Seele“ der Zuhörer, in den Hintergrund treten.
Mit einer Mischung aus klassischen Metal-Zutaten wie Doublebase- und Blastbeats, die jedoch auch in virtuose und komplexe Rhythmen münden, legt die Augsburger Death Metal Formation die Fundamente ihrer Songs. Hinzu gesellen sich lebendige Melodien, die immer wieder von harten, dreckigen Gitarrenriffs durchbrochen werden. Zuletzt die charakteristischen Vocals, welche sich aus Shouts, Growls, Screams und Pig Squeals in ihrer aggressivsten, brutalsten Form zusammensetzen.
Mit zahlreichen Gigs und diversen Bandwettbewerben, bei denen stets das Finale erreicht werden konnte, erscheint schon 2010 die erste E.P., die den Bandnamen „Deadfreight of Soul“ trägt. Es folgt die selbstorganisierte „Infinity of Resistance Tour 2011“ durch Süddeutschland und die „Human Flesh Course Tour“ 2015 durch ganz Deutschland. Ein weiteres Highlight war das Metal-Festival „The day the Dead Walked 2013“ in Augsburg, welches jährlich wiederholt wird.
Mit ihrer professionellen Promo E.P. „Ophois“ (Mai 2014), liefert das Ensemble bereits einen Vorgeschmack auf ihr Debütalbum „Tortured Puppets“, welches im Winter 2017 veröffentlicht wird. Man darf gespannt sein, was die Band mit ihrer ersten großen Platte liefern wird und sollte sich den Namen „Deadfreight of Soul“ für die Zukunft merken.

Hallo Leute,  beim PARTY SAN  geht es Schlag auf Schlag. Heute fügen wir zwei uns sehr wichtige Bands dem Billing für das Jahr 2018 hinzu. Wir hoffen euch munden die Neuzugänge. Tickets und Festivalbundles gibt es bei: www.cudgel.de
Nicht nur eine Legende des osteuropäischen Metal, sondern des weltweiten Black Metal generell beehrt unser Festival! Eine ganze Heerschar an Schwarzmetall-Bands wurde von MASTER'S HAMMER beeinflusst und inspiriert! 1987 gegründet, orientierten sich die Tschechen zunächst an Vorbilder wie Bathory und Venom, fanden aber recht schnell einen ureigenen, originellen und unverwechselbaren Stil, der schwarzmetallische Rasanz, orchestrale Schwere und eine gewisse landeseigene Schrulligkeit vereinte. Sowohl die klassischen Alben der Neunziger - vor allem "Ritual", "Jilemnický Okultista" und "Slagry" - als auch die jüngsten Veröffentlichungen nach der großen Bandpause zwischen 1998 und 2008 bieten schwarzmetallische Gourmetkost.
The Longships Are Coming! Ein Glück, dass erst vor kurzem der Hafen von Schlotheim vergrößert wurde, damit die Vikings von UNLEASHED adäquat anreisen können... Die alte Death-Metal-Legende extra vorstellen müssen wir vermutlich nicht, aber so viel sei gesagt: Die bis aufs Nötigste reduzierten Songs der Stockholmer sind samt und sonders echte Ohrwürmer, hammerharte Nackenbrecher - und werden für heftige Stürme auf und vor der Bühne sorgen, wenn Bandboss Johnny Hedlund und deine Mit-Berserker loslegen. Schwedischer Death Metal in seiner puren Essenz!

HALPHAS – “DAWN OF A CRIMSON EMPIRE”
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Folter Records
Vertrieb: Alive
: 15.12.2017
Die Geschichte von HALPHAS beginnt im Jahre 2014. Seinerzeit gründeten Tempestas (Drums, NOCTURNAL / CROSS VAULT), Thurstan (Guit.), Forcas (Bass) und Legatus (Vocals) die Band und begannen sofort mit den Arbeiten an ersten Songs. Im folgenden Jahr war es dann soweit und die erste Drei-Track-Demo entstand. Im Jahr 2016 sties Avnas zur Band und komplettierte das Line-Up. Mit voller Stärke lag der Fokus fortan auf den Songs für das Debütalbum „Dawn of a Crimson Empire“, welches nun unter der Flagge von Folter Records erscheint. 
 Von Beginn an haben sich HALPHAS dem kompromisslosen Black Metal verschrieben und dieser Umstand ist dem Debütalbum klar anzuhören. „Dawn of a Crimson Empire“ bietet originalen Black Metal, der sich fernab von genrefremden Einflüssen in der Finsternis bewegt. Getragen von epischen Melodien, eingängigen Midtempo-Passagen und wüsten, aber sehr facettenreichen Vocals zeigen die Songs, dass traditioneller Black Metal auch heute noch leidenschaftlich und voller Hingabe gespielt wird. Textlich halten sich HALPHAS dagegen fernab der satanischen Klischees und legen den Fokus auf Tod, Hass, Schmerz und dunkle Begehrlichkeiten. Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei der ewige Kampf und das innere Streben nach Stärke, die sich auch in den brachialen Klängen der acht Songs widerspiegeln.

SOYUZ BEAR – “ BLACK PHLEGM “
STYLE : Sludge/Doom
ORIGIN : France/Toulouse
DURATION : 32:41
LABEL : Zanjeer Zani Productions
NETWORK DISTRIBUTOR : Necrocosm, Season of Mist & Cargo Records (UK)
DIGITAL DISTRIBUTOR : TuneCore
SOYUZ BEAR was formed in 2012 with a will of sharing some imagery of human depravity throughout violent music output. Music quickly turned into raw sludge material and a set to be played in local shows was writen with strong influence of alcohol, EYEHATEGOD and IRON WITCH.
The first demo was then recorded in december 2014 and was released in 2016 with Zanjeer Zani Productions. With more live and writing experience, SOYUZ BEAR moved deeper in its universe and focuced on some more precise aspects of it. The first tracks of the album "Black Phlegm" were then writen. Alongside the process of writing, the themes were digging deeper and deeper into the lightless abyss of violence and murder.
SOYUZ BEAR is now the hammer shot behind your neck, the crawling weak that sucks your life until you crawl yourself down. There is nothing good to take out of this. This is the last gasp of the Men that die of hunger and thirst altogether. Album "Black Phlegm" was recorded in december 2016.

Horror Pain Gore Death Productions presents this intense split album between Japan's grinding maniacs RETORTION TERROR and US Death/Grind destroyers INVIDIOSUS! Retortion Terror make their HPGD debut with 5 tracks of raw, blistering grindcore straight from Kyoto Japan. Featuring legendary guitarist Takafumi Matsubara (Gridlink, Mortalized Grindcore) and a mysterious lineup of international grinders, Retortion Terror pull no punches on this split. In 2014, Takafumi suffered a brain infection that made it nearly impossible for him to play guitar, and many thought Gridlink's "Longhena" might be Takafumi's last record. Fortunately, he has beaten those odds; his recovery has been nothing short of miraculous, and he has resumed playing guitar and doing karate in spite of what the doctors told him. This is Takafumi's first release since that final Gridlink album, having overcome some impossible odds to return to playing grindcore. His work with RETORTION TERROR shows that he has no signs of slowing down or stopping anytime soon." This is an absolute must listen for fans of Discordance Axis, Wormrot, Noisear and Insect Warfare.
Invidiosus also make their Horror Pain Gore Death debut on this devastating split release! Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Invidiosus perform vicious, anxiety-driven Death/Grind that is absolutely punishing. Invidiosus features current and former members of Amiensus, Rottenness, Violence Condoned, In Defence and Atrum Inritus. The band has spent the last 3 years relentlessly touring Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Bolivia and the USA, with an upcoming tour of Japan and South Korea (including a festival performance at Asakusa Deathfest). Blending elements of Grindcore, Death Metal and Thrash, Invidiosus brings their destructive, eclectic style out in full force for their HPGD premiere! Essential for fans of Cephalic Carnage, Phobia, Pig Destroyer, and Brutal Truth
Track List:

Swedish Blackest & Heaviest Metal Force, DRACENA announces pre-orders for upcoming album & unleashes album cover and track list for their upcoming album "CURSED TO THE NIGHT" to be released on CD & Cassette on INFERNO Records - Set for October 30th 2017.
Dracena was spawned in Gothenburg (SWE) during a stormy autumn night in 1994 to be an all female metal band, later dubbed as ”Sweden’s heaviest all-girl band” in the Encyclopedia of Swedish Hard Rock and Heavy Metal.
By creating a mix of various metal genres, ranging from old school classic metal to the power of thrash with a touch of black metal and brought forth by the lyrics of a sinister dark atmosphere of bloodlust and death, Dracena has been described as a cross between Bathory and Mercyful Fate/Venom and Running Wild.
Between 1997 and 2001 Dracena released 3 demos, but in 2002 the band members decided to go separate ways while MiA continued with the band alone.
The debut full length album Infernal Damnation, containing 8 tracks, was independently released as a CD in 2006-06-06. During this studio session Dracena also recorded a cover of W.A.S.P’s Animal (Fuck like a Beast) for the W.A.S.P tribute album to be released by Codiac Records (DEN) in May of 2006 - “Rock Shock Hellions – A tribute to W.A.S.P”
In January 2014 the 4-track MCD Ravenous Bloodlust was released, recorded in Andy La Rocque’s Sonic Train Studios.
The new recording Cursed to the Night is a full length with 8 brand new tracks to be released by Infernö Records 2017. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered in Studio Cave 2016/2017. Drums are played and recorded by Jocke in MediEvil Studios 2016 and all solos and lead melodies are played and recorded by Fredrik Folkare (Unleashed/Firespawn) in Chrome Studios 2017. 
Ola Malmström from Sorcery (SWE) is guest vocalist on “The Shadow of What Once Was”
During the years Dracena made live appearances supporting bands like Lord Belial, Agathodaimon, Ancient, Sacramentum, Ancients Rebirth and Siebenbürgen as well as the 2 Heavy 4 You festival in 2001.
DRACENA's music is best described as a mix of Heavy & Black Metal - recommended for fans of Bathory, Mercyful Fate, Dissection, Venom, Running Wild, Iron Maiden...
Mastermind MIA about the new album :
"There will be blood, there will be pain… there will be darkness and death… We are excited to announce our 3rd album, "Cursed To The Night", which will soon be released by Infernö Records. "Cursed To The Night" is a classic Dracena-release with a raw and brutal metal mixing of various old school metal genres. All the songs are written to create a short story about bloodlust and death, torment and pain, strange creatures transforming into darkness, cursed to the night to spend eternity inside the bloodstained walls…"

- Recorded, mixed and mastered by Pontus ”Punchy” Ekwall at Studio Cave - Fagersta 2016/2017

Australia's THE MALEDICT release new single "IMPERILLED" :  Hailing from Australia, death/doom collective The Maledict have released their brand new three-song single/MCD "Imperilled" on October 5th. This new single features one new song, one reworked track from the band's 2013 demo, and one cover.
The title track heads up the package, bringing 8 minutes of doom. The new material is as laden with melancholy as ever, but now hints at things to come - with a heavy injection of atmosphere and melody to accentuate against the filthy canvas of death/doom metal.
"Waltz Eternal", the leading cut from the band's 2013 demo "Salvation in Yielding" has been reworked from the ground-up, bringing one of the band's favourite live tracks into the present with far superior production.
And finally, the release culminates with a tribute to one of the biggest musical inspirations behind The Maledict's sound as they cover the title track from Paradise Lost's seminal 1991 classic "Gothic", arguably the song that invented death/doom as we know it.
"Imperilled" is available for free on Bandcamp, as well as being released on most streaming digital music services.

WOLFHORDE is releasing a tribute EP “THE GREAT OLD ONES” with three cover songs from the best known pioneers of Finnish metal music: Finntroll, Moonsorrow and Amorphis. These bands have been big inspiration to Wolfhorde and also to many others.
From the core, Wolfhorde is a Folk Metal band, but after all categories don’t really mean that much. With this release we want to show where our biggest musical inspiration comes from and how long and diverse is the history of Finnish Folk Metal, which leads back to early 90’s death metal of Amorphis, to Epic Heathen Metal of Moonsorrow and finally to humppa-infused black metal of Finntroll.
All these bands are bound together, but everyone with their very different styles of music. Even the language of every song is another. We thought that a compilation of these unique songs should definitely make an interesting time travel to roots of this genre of music in Finland.
”I think we should remember to sometimes forget about categorization of music and just enjoy the different range of varieties. With the release of this tribute EP titled The Great Old Ones, Wolfhorde wants to show the range of different elements within the genre. Just sit back and enjoy good music.”, says Werihukka – the composer and guitar player of Wolfhorde.
 In the meanwhile, Wolfhorde will concentrate energy to creating a new full-length album.
The Great Old Ones release date is December 1st 2017 via   Inverse Records

No Clean Singing premiered the black metal band's 13-minute video AT THIS LINK. Islander described it as - "The music becomes freakishly dissonant and cacophonous, settles into an ambient phase populated by weird Dopplering sounds (like a siren) and exploding drum munitions, and surges again into a maelstrom of braying chords, screaming notes, bursts of sledge-hammering bass, and scattershot snare bursts."

MRTVI (UK) - 'NEGATIVE ATONAL DISSONANCE'
Gatefold 8-Panel Hardcover Digipak / Merch / Digital
Genre - Experimental Black Metal
Release Date - July 30th, 2017
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - DEATHSPELL OMEGA, PORTAL, ORANSSI PAZUZU, PLASMODIUM,  BLACK FUNERAL, BLUT AUS NORD, NORSE 
MRTVI, the mysterious underground entity has reared its ugly head with another groundbreaking album that defies conventions and bends perceptions. A twisted interpretation of black metal laced with ambient textures and unpredictable experimentation turns the professed genre on its head. Like contrasting mental thoughts, the music is a cacophony of various influences clashing in a seemingly indecipherable pattern, with chaos reigning but only on the surface; underneath, it's a carefully planned web of inextricable melodies and bursts of emotions. 'Negative Atonal Dissonance' is not for everyone. It's for those willing to embrace the true extremity of the genre perceived through the lawless, nonstandard and audacious prism of this UK/Serbian band.
BAND DISCLAIMER: Negative Atonal Dissonance is not an album. It is a statement, a philosophy, an experiment; a rejection and reaction to the current trends within the mainstream and underground alike. Extreme metal has painted itself into a corner. Production values that serve no other purpose other than to sound recognisable and palatable. Arrangements, rhythms and harmonies that are more concerned with being identifiable and 'viable' than with originality. In an infinite universe, music is endless; a spectrum of emotion, of atmosphere, a vibrational connection running through and joining all frequencies; a spiritual, meditative practice, a dream and a nightmare connecting the creation with the creative force... 
Track list: 
1. As Consciousness Is Harnessed To Flesh Part 1 (7:52)
2. As Consciousness Is Harnessed To Flesh Part 2 (12:50)
3. Negative Atonal Dissonance (20:53)

Execution of Violence takes the ferocious Old School Death Metal of 2015 debut In Death We Rot (released on Redefining Darkness Records) and ups the annihilation ante! Armed with 10 new tracks of focused brutality, on Execution of Violence, BLOODSTRIKE is prepared to spread their reign of terror to more unexplored territories at home and abroad.
The album was produced by BLOODSTRIKE and recorded by Jeff Alexis. Mixing was done by John Bart Van Der Wal and mastering by the mighty Dan Swanö.
BIO
The initial idea for the punishing old school death metal assault that would become Bloodstrike was first conceived by guitarist Jeff Alexis (ex-Silencer) and vocalist Holly Wedel (ex-Nexhymn) in 2013. They recruited Joe Piker (ex-Dripfed) on guitar, Ryan Alexander Bloom (ex-Havok) on drums to round out the band and began developing a collection of massive riffs and crushing arrangements. Bloodstrike's veteran lineup exploded onto the Denver metal scene in June of 2014 with their three-track Necrobirth demo. The demo gained instant popularity with the death metal underground and drew comparisons to bands like Bolt Thrower and Entombed for both its ear-catching simplicity and blood-curdling heaviness. Impressed by the success of the demo and the work ethic of the band members, Redefining Darkness Records signed Bloodstrike to its roster in September of 2015 and quickly released their debut album In Death We Rot. After a successful round of touring and writing in 2016, the band went back into the studio in the spring of 2017 to record their second full-length album, Execution of Violence.

For fans of - OPETH, EDGE OF SANITY, AMORPHIS, HYPOCRISY, DEMONSTEALER, RUDRA
Ambitious Indian band FRAGARAK from New Delhi have come up with an album of epic proportions. Featuring Louis Rando of IMPIETY on drums, they've fabricated elaborate songs that are both atmospheric and suspenseful. Their first album was groundbreaking in its vision, but with 'A Spectral Oblivion' they've truly proved their worth. This is a statement of sorts that bands from this part of the world too can come up with music that's original. Though steeped in classic death metal, they've done well to expand upon that style and add their own aura of mysticism and intrigue. Albums like these probably won't ever be replicated, but there's enough material here to last a while.

BIO
Hyper blasts, heavy slams, and catchy riffing distinguish Skinned as a unique act in the vast, multi-faceted world of extreme metal. Skinned's relentless drive and road warrior attitude has garnered attention around the globe with performances across the continental United States, Hawaii, Mexico, the U.K., Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, Ukraine, the Baltics, Japan, South Africa, and South Asia.
Skinned began as the brainchild of guitarist Travis Weickum in 1995. The band's infancy brought the release of cassette demos followed by a split CD with fellow Colorado band Mentally Murdered in 1998. The band has since grown into a globally recognized death metal act with six released, full length, studio albums.
In June 2017 Skinned hit the studio to record their seventh album, Shadow Syndicate with engineer/producer Dave Otero at Flatline Audio in Westminster, Colorado. Previously, Otero recorded Skinned's second album, Spawn of Insanity, released in 2005. Dave is widely known for his work with Cattle Decapitation, Cephalic Carnage, and Allegaeon, just to name a few. Skinned is stoked to work with Dave Otero again on Shadow Syndicate, and the album is an outstanding addition to their discography.
Skinned's recent tours have included jaunts with Kataklysm, Incantation, Defeated Sanity, Cephalic Carnage, Carnivore Diprosopus, Leng Tch'e, Deranged, Goratory, Desecration, and others.
Skinned has shared the stage with; StaticX, Kataklysm, Vader, Deicide, Cannibal Corpse, Decapitated, Alestorm, Hatebreed, Epica, Brutal Truth, Belphegor, Carnifex, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Septicflesh, Aborted, 1349, Internal Bleeding, Broken Hope, Obituary, Napalm Death, Misery Index, Revocation, Cannabis Corpse, and more.

Hi – Chris and Paul from Imperative PR here, with a challenge for you... how far can you stretch your sanity? How strong is your stomach? Where do your personal boundaries of good taste lie? And just how heavy can you handle your grind? When one of death metal’s premier bands uttered the words ‘too extreme’ were they in fact foretelling the arrival of the new album from Russia’s Smothered Bowels?
SMOTHERED BOWELS came crawling out of the Moscow suburbs in 2010, with the Traho Defunctus EP gripped in their grimy hands and since then have vomited their wildly unhinged, technicolor goregrind in every direction. Their only full length album release was 2014s Thorax Driller – until now... On November 10th Bizarre Leprous Productions invite you to enter a cabaret of the disturbed and demented! A carnival of sickness, a circus of freaks! The Dead C*nt Dance...take a seat amongst the filth as Smothered Bowels take you on a journey through blood, faeces and intestines to the far, dark side of madness. You’ll laugh 'til something ruptures and you bleed out on the floor.
The twenty six tracks of utter lunacy that make up the gratuitously offensive Dead C*nt Dance are amongst the most exhilarating, repugnant, exciting and horrifying sounds you will ever hear. This is truly extreme music, taking everything beyond the accepted limits. Madness knows no boundaries...
The release of the musical obscenity that is Dead C*nt Dance will be preceded by a stunning music video for one of the album’s finest tracks – ‘U.S. Butcher’. Years in the making, you will never have seen anything like this before. A mini-feature film in its own right, this is the kind of visual horror show that every death metal or goregrind band dreams of making, but simply don’t have the ambition or audacity to attempt. Not even the biggest and most successful names in the genre have come close to anything of this quality.  When these Russian lunatics decided to bring their psychotic visions to cinematic life only perfection would do and ‘U.S. Butcher’ is a blood-drenched nightmare you will never forget.
Smothered Bowels are most definitely not for everyone, but if beneath that smiling facade you wear every day lurks the soul of a cackling, caged lunatic...then they might just be for you.

KAUNAN is Oliver S. Tyr (Ger.), Boris Koller (Au.) and Göran Hallmarken (Swe). Oliver S. Tyr is the frontman of the well-known German folk band FAUN. Boris Koller is a professional painter and composer who specialize in working with the old types of Nyckelharpa (the Kontrabasharpa, and Gammelharpa). He has contributed to numerous studio productions and concerts performed by various early music ensembles. Göran Hallmarken is one of the most outstanding hurdy-gurdy players on the Swedish folk and medieval music scene.
The Nordic-folk trio KAUNAN breathe new life into old traditional Scandinavian music, re-awakening the ancient realms of pre-Christian folklore by drawing on ancient songs and tunes; odd scales; early folk instruments like the kontrabasharpa, the hurdy-gurdy, various lutes, the lyre, and the bagpipes; and the old Nordic myths.
As of now (2017), KAUNAN have played concerts in Germany, Sweden, France and the Netherlands. Audiences have been fascinated not only by their virtuous performances, but also by the drive and archaic power that lies behind their fresh interpretations of the old songs. KAUNAN do not simply play a Polska; they celebrate it, with almost religious passion.
The upcoming album features contributions by leading guest musicians such as Einar Selvik (WARDRUNA), Maria Franz (HEILUNG and SONGLEIKR) and the Swedish percussionist Dhani Åhlman. Accompanied by a booklet rich in illustrations, photos and background stories about the folklore traditions that lie behind the songs, “FORN” will open a new previously uncharted doorway into the world of the ancient north.

First released in Digital and Digipak CD formats on Avantgarde Music in 2015, SELVANS' "CLANGORES PLENILUNIO" MCD is now available for the first time as a Limited Edition 12" Picture LP via  Vendetta Records.
Following the demise of DRAUGR , SELVANS was formed by frontman Haruspex, with the idea of bringing back to life  the mysticism and the folklore that the different ethnic  inhabitants of  Italy left behind them over the ages.  Something that the band has been able to do very successfully,  not only through their music and lyrics, both in the studio and  live on stage, but also aesthetically.
 Sadly, SELVANS' first drummer, Jonny, was killed in a motorbike accident shortly after finishing recording the drums and part of the vocals for "Clangores Plenilunio".  The vocals and lyrics were completed by Haruspex, and the MCD was released as a tribute to Jonny. 
With artwork conceived by Haruspex and actualized by Eba Art , and with the addition of the previously unpublished lyrics for the tracks "Lupecale" and "Clangores Plenilunio", track listing on the Picture LP is as follows:
 1. Lupercale
2. Clangores Plenilunio
3. Prologue
4. ... In the Woods (In The Woods cover)
5. Epilogue
"Clangores Plenilunio" is available from Vendetta Records at the following:

Was haben wir diese Woche nun geschafft ??? Eigentlich so gut wie gar nix ! War echt nicht so ,dass man wirklich großartig nen Plan hatte ,irgendwas geistiges auf Papier zu bringen . Fuck ! Naja ,wenigstens hat man die Energie & die Nerven gefunden ,Euch da draußen mit nem ganzen Haufen Neuigkeiten & neuen Terminen auf der Website zu versorgen .
Freunde, der Herbst ist angekommen und die Indoor-Saison läuft auf Hochtouren. Es ist also höchste Zeit auf das kommende PARTY.SAN METAL OPEN AIR zu schauen und mindestens eine wichtige neue Band anzukündigen. Bevor wir hier weiter faseln, lest selbst. Festivaltickets gibt es wie gewohnt hier: www.cudgel.de
Booking-News:
Wir freuen uns und sind stolz, die einzige Show in Deutschland von Norwegens Black Metal Titanen für das Party.San Metal Open Air 2018 ankündigen zu dürfen. Von all den großartigen norwegischen Bands, die in den frühen Neunzigern die Metal-Welt im Sturm nahmen, nahmen diese Schwarzmagier von Anfang an eine Sonderstellung ein: EMPEROR! Obwohl sie den harschen Sound und die zornige Raserei der turbulenten nordischen Szene in ihren Anfangsjahren teilten, hatte die Legende aus der Provinzstadt Notodden in der ländlichen Region Telemark mehr zu bieten: eine phänomenale Vision in Klang und Kompositorik, die einen wichtigen deutschen Kritiker erklären ließ, dass EMPEROR den Black Metal zur Kunstform erhoben haben. Jedes Album der Norweger steht als Meilenstein in der Geschichte des Black Metal, doch um die künstlerische Integrität ihrer Band zu wahren, entschieden sich die musikalisch in gegensätzliche Richtungen strebenden Köpfe im Jahr 2001 getrennte Wege zu gehen. Seitdem erschien keine weitere Veröffentlichung, doch die Norweger kommen zu seltenen Live-Auftritten zusammen. Im Jahr 2018 kehren EMPEROR für eine einzige Konzert beim Party.San Open Air nach Deutschland zurück! Verpasst diese einmalige Gelegenheit nicht, die schwarze Legende im passenden Rahmen zu sehen!
