NEWS 20.5.2018

Manchmal ist es echt schon verdammt merkwürdig .Da hat man nun mal wirklich jede Menge Zeit gehabt ,um sich mal wieder intensiver mit allen möglichen Neuveröffentlichungen auseinanderzusetzen .Und was ist passiert – nix ! Ob es nun am Arbeits – und Alltagsstress liegt oder einem ganz einfach das „Alter“ zu schaffen macht…..keine Ahnung .Jedenfalls gibt’s für euch da draußen diesmal absolut nix Neues ,wo ihr Eure sauer verdiente Kohle investieren könntet . Einzig allein mit dem Layout für die Jubileumsausgabe geht’s nun wirklich verdammt gut voran ,so dass es eigentlich so ziemlich sicher sein dürfte ,das unsere aktuelle „Klolektüre“ dann im Juli verschickt werden dürfte .Als kleinen „Heißmacher“ können wir Euch jetzt zumindestens schon mal das aktuelle Cover präsentieren .
Nachdem mit NAĐRA bereits die dritte isländische Band für das DE MORTEM ET DIABOLUM 2018 bekannt gegeben wurde, folgt jetzt ein weiteres Highlight vom kleinen Inselstaat. Die finsteren Death Metaller ZHRINE werden ebenfalls im Dezember in Berlin aufschlagen und das Columbia Theatre in Dunkelheit hüllen.
Die letzten Early-Bird-Tickets sind hier für 60€ statt 68€ erhältlich: https://www.folter666shop.de/de/Tickets/eTicket/de-mortem-et-diabolum-vol-iv-early-bird-hardticket.html

PENTARIUM – “ZWISCHENWELT”
„Zwischenwelt“ lautet der Titel des neuen PENTARIUM-Albums und verbindet die  bisherigen Schaffensweisen der Band auf eindrucksvolle Weise. Das Album zeigt, dass die  Hessen bereit für den nächsten Schritt sind. Kaum eine andere Band schafft es derzeit, so  eigenständig aufzutrumpfen wie PENTARIUM. Düstere Texte, die mit Sozialkritik nicht  sparen sowie ein druckvoller Stil, der sich aus Elementen des Melodic Death und der NDH  zusammen setzt, bilden das Fundament dieses Sextetts. 
PENTARIUM knüpfen mit „Zwischenweltì“an ihr in der Presse hochgelobtes Werk  „Schwarzmaler“ an. Erneut ist Thorsten Baus (Steelwise Studios) für die Produktion 
zuständig und auch in Sachen Artwork setzt man mit Björn Ossenbühl aka „Ilskar Art" auf  Bewährtes. Dennoch ist dieses Album als eine konsequente Weiterentwicklung zu sehen,  denn die „Zwischenwelt“ birgt viele Geheimnisse, die sich lohnen, entdeckt zu werden.
Stilsicher punkten PENTARIUM auf „Zwischenwelt“ mit neu aufgenommenen Songs aus der  Anfangsphase sowie mit brandneuen Tracks, die sich nicht nur um den Schriftsteller H.P.  Lovecraft, sondern auch um zeitgenössische Themen wie häusliche Gewalt, Depressionen und Demenz drehen. Ihre Lieder erzählen Geschichten, in denen immer ein kleiner Funken
Hoffnung versucht, die Düsternis zu erhellen. Sänger Carsten Linhs und Gitarrist Florian Jahn schaffen das Grundgerüst, Schritt für Schritt entstehen im Zusammenspiel aller Bandmitglieder die fertigen Songs. Mal mit unbändiger Urgewalt, dann wieder zerbrechlich, PENTARIUM zeigen uns die Welt, wie sie wirklich ist.

Werte Retro-Rocker! "Prelude" war 2016 bereits ein superber Vorgeschmack, im Nachhinein aber doch - nomen est omen - nur das Vorspiel für die Dinge, die da noch kommen sollen.
Vorhang auf für das neue WYTCH HAZEL-Prachtwerk "II - SOJOURN"!
Düsterer, komplexer und zugleich fokussierter reiht Großbritanniens große Hoffnung Highlight an Highlight, wobei das Album im Ganzen zählt und nicht ein, zwei Hits, die mit ein paar Füllern auf LP-Länge gestreckt werden.
Mastermind Colin Hendra (Gitarre, Gesang, Songwriting) liefert mit "II - Sojourn" ein Konzeptalbum ab.
Und da die kreativen Kräfte mehr denn je fließen, gibt´s sogar gleich zwei Storylines.
Die beiden Hälften (für die Vinylfans: Seite A und Seite B) verhalten sich dabei wie Yin und Yang und ergänzen sich gegenseitig.
Okkulten Hokuspokus gibt´s hier Gott sei Dank keinen.
Mehr Details findet Ihr in der Band-Bio.
Es lohnt sich auf jeden Fall, in die Welt von Colin einzutauchen und zu erkunden, wie perfekt Inhalt und musikalische Umsetzung harmonieren.
Apropos: Musikalisch ist "II - Sojourn" mehr Hardrock und weniger Rock-Folk als der Vorgänger.
Colin hat in letzter Zeit viel Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy und Wishbone Ash gehört, großartige Inspirationen, die großartig umgesetzt wurden.
Lasst Euch begeistern!

OSTMETAL-Newsletter vom 13.05.2018 :  Guten Abend, liebe Ostmetal-Gemeinde! Heute möchte ich mal einen Aufruf verbreiten, damit einige von euch an einer Aktion mitwirken, die das Kapitel "Heavy Metal in der DDR" näher beleuchten soll. Alles Weitere erklärt euch Franzi selbst:
Hi, ich bin Franzi, Designerin und Fotografin aus Berlin. Ich mache gerade meinen Master für Kommunikationsdesign und plane dafür einen Bildband zum Thema "Heavy Metal in der DDR" zu gestalten.
Dazu brauche ich Menschen, die in der DDR gelebt haben und früher und heute Metal hören. Mein Plan ist es diese Leute zu fotografieren, zu interviewen und wenn möglich ein bis zwei Fotos von ihnen von früher aus DDR-Zeiten abdrucken zu können und alles in einen Bildband zu packen. Ich möchte zeigen, wie diese Musikrichtung gelebt und wahrgenommen wurde und was die Szene alles dafür auf sich nahm. Bücher über Punk in der DDR gibt es zu Hauf, über Metal aber nicht. Das möchte ich gern ändern. Daher meine Frage: Wer hätte Bock Teil dieses Projekts zu sein? Ich würde mich wirklich sehr über euer Interesse freuen, schickt mir auch gern einfach Tipps, wer oder was euch dazu einfällt.
Kurz zu mir: Metal ist seit meiner Jugend fester Bestandteil meines Lebens. Ich wurde 1989 in Ostberlin geboren, kenne das Geschehen also nur durch Erzählungen meiner Familie.
Also egal ob Bandmitglied oder Fan, meldet euch unter
contact@lemmor-photography.com bei mir. Ich danke euch und bin gespannt.
LG Franzi

Earlier this year, Mexican symphonic death metallers THE OUTSIDER have published a lyric video for the track "The Invocation", which features members from Sweden's operatic legendary outfit Therion.
Taken off from the band's debut album "The Outsider", "The Invocation" is a solid musical statement that like every other track from this record showcases the band's ability to add dramatism into your music and to create an epic dark sound.
The video is an edited version of the original (slightly shortened), and this edited version appears on the band's latest EP, "Ancient Beast of the Apocalypse" as a bonus track. 
The Outsider - The Invocation (feat. Thomas Vikström & Nalle Påhlsson) 
"The Outsider" debut album
In order to present to the world a solid musical statement, the very first release by The Outsider is a full-lenght album. As mentioned before, all music and lyrics were written, arranged and performed by one person (except for the guest appearences). Rick Loera (known for his long-term musical career on the mexican metal scence) was in charge of the recording, mixing and mastering of the album.
The whole recording process lasted 5 months, all instruments and vocals were recorded at Rick's studio, except for some keyboards and all orchestral instruments. Very special musicians were invited for a guest appearence on this debut album, including Nalle Påhlsson and Thomas Vikström from the legendary swedish symphonic metal outfit Therion, Vikström was also part of Candlemass time ago, Joey Concepcion, who plays guitar in Armageddon (band founded by ex-Arch Enemy Christopher Amott) made an astonishing solo contribution, and Antony Hämäläinen, who sings in Armageddon as well and once was part of Nightrage made some incredible guest vocals.
Cover artwork was made by Belasse Inferno, who made an accurate visual representation of the music by The Outsider.

BEYOND DETH – “ THE AGE OF DARKNESS”
Beyond Deth is the brainchild of Jon Corston who began writing for the project back in 2003. As the catalog grew it became more of a serious endeavor and musicians were needed to create the live sound. Beyond Deth officially began in February of 2012 with the release of their first demo “What Lies” featuring 3 songs and the first lineup to hit the stage. They then followed up with a self titled 2 song demo in 2014 to further solidify their presence. During this time, they were briefly signed to an Indy Label name Nativity Records but sadly, the label went bankrupt. 
Beyond Deth’s sound is a mixed bag, combining elements from Death Metal, Thrash Metal, Black Metal, Melodic Metal and even Power metal influences. No 2 songs sound the same and a “No Trends”, “No Gimmick” attitude is firmly in place. The music is fast, heavy and continually evolving as time progresses. Their first full length album is slated for a 2017 release and will showcase more of this diversity.
Beyond Deth has shared the stage with many greats such as Malevolent Creation, Benediction, Bolt Thrower, Deicide, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Carach Angren, Starkill, Abigail Williams, Incantation, 1349, Macabre, Morbid Saint, DeathHammer and many more
They have built quite the stir in their hometown of Chicago but have always had their sights on the rest of the world. They regularly perform all around the Midwest improving themselves as a solid regional act and steady touring is the main focus at this point in their career. They will do whatever it takes to continue pushing forward for the fans

LUZIFER – “BLACK KNIGHT – RISE “ ( MC )
Despite the massive success of their killer main band Vulture Steeler and Genözider find enough time to quench their thirst for heavy metal. They draw influences from iconic acts such as Heavy Load or Mercyful Fate and celebrate traditional heavy metal the way it is supposed to be. 
SIGN OF THE JACKAL – “BREAKING THE SPELL”  CD / MC
Ten years after their first demo this Italian 5-piece is back! Their second album picks up exactly where they stopped with their 2013 “Mark of the Beast” album. Great traditional heavy metal with a powerful vocal performance by their singer Laura. If bands like Warlock or Acid sound right to your ears, you will love Sign of the Jackal as well. The 8 new tracks + intro are perfect material for each and every old school headbanger out there.
DUNGEON – “ PURIFYING FIRE “  MC
Great old school speed metal from London, UK. Mixing in some elements of death and heavy metal the four piece attacks posers with a purifying fire. This 6 track ep is a treat for every old school speed metal maniac!
SCHAFOTT – “THE BLACK FLAME “  MC
(Ex) members of Abyssous, Chörnyj Woron and Roadkill deliver an impressive black thrash metal record which expands the limits of the genre by including longer tracks with lots of variations. Sinister and dark aggression meets (sometimes) melancholic melodies. Nevertheless always authentic and old school.

MORGENGRAU's sophomore album BLOOD ORACLE is now streaming in its entirety and available for purchase directly from Unspeakable Axe Records.  The album will be available through international distribution channels on June 22. Stream the album below.  https://unspeakableaxerecords.bandcamp.com/album/blood-oracle
The band's German name belies its American origins, just as much as its combination of Euro-death riffs and rhythms with the Floridian originators of the genre will keep listeners guessing.  With a vicious approach reminiscent of ASPHYX, PESTILENCE, DEICIDE and CELTIC FROST, Blood Oracle is eight tracks deep with the kind of death metal that the genre's most loyal fans will devour. It was produced by the great Harris Johns (Celtic Frost, Kreator, Pestilence, Voivod, and too many more to list), ensuring that its sound is honed to a fine edge.
Featuring atmospheric artwork by Nick Keller (who has done concept paintings for numerous movies including The Lord of the Rings and Mad Max: Fury Road, in addition to his stellar cover art for many bands), this album aims to surpass in every way MORGENGRAU's self-released debut. Blood Oracle will be available on CD and digital platforms.  NOTE: No band photo available. Any photo you find on the Internet will be inaccurate.
Track List:
1. Blood Oracle
2. Wolves of Thirteen
3. Progression
4. Poised at the Precipice of Doom
5. Forced Exodus
6. Invert the Marker
7. Incipit Bellum
8. Evocation of the Wheel

EUPHOREON – “ ENDS OF THE EARTH”
Euphoreon is a two-piece unit from New Zealend formed by Matt Summerville in 2009. After a solo demo was released in 2009, Eugen Dodenhoeft (Far Beyond | www.far-beyond.com) from Germany joined the project and the self-titled debut album was released in 2011.
After a long period of silence, Euphoreon is back with their new album 'Ends of the Earth' to be released in April 2018. "Ends of the Earth" delivers a signature Euphoreon sound with aggressive and melodic soundscapes encompassing influences from a range of different metal genres.

Hailing from Brazil, post-black metallers SCULPTURE have released their debut full-length "TO ANOTHER PLACE" earlier this month. This instrumental project is headed by two experienced musicians from Sao Paulo's extreme metal scene who have decided to develop an instrumental sound featuring good melodies and without giving up on the weight and aggressiveness. The result from these experiences is "To Another Place", which immediately aroused interest from Hammer Of Damnation for its originality and the will to develop an unprecedented ambience on the national scene. 
Sculpture is the Brazilian answer to Alcest, Woods of Desolation, Harakiri for the Sky or Drudkh, while keeping a peculiar style that varies between Ambient / Post / Black Metal with progressive elements and heavy metal, totaling about 40 minutes of Intrumental Ambient (post) Black Metal. 
Released in luxury packaging, in a 6-panel digifile, with slipcase in high relief and booklet of 8 pages packed with the digifile. A graphic quality as superior as sound, "To Another Place" is an album that is born classic.

Italy's black metal unit HORNWOOD FELL are looking for a label to release their current "INFERUS" EP in physical format and/or future records. The band has released "Inferus" digitally only. If you happen to be interested let me know.
Hornwood Fell was formed in 2014 with the aim of performing second wave Norwegian-inspired Black Metal music. Their first self-titled album, released by Avantgrade Music, a well-known music label of this genre, was inspired by bands such as: Ulver, Darkthrone and Kvist. In the second album "Yheri" the band’s line-up changed when the bassist Andrea Vacca left the band. So the band which was originally a trio became a "duo" made up of the twin Basili brothers and in "Yheri" the bass guitar was played by Marco Basili. The second album is a concept one and the band enriched their sound by incorporating psychedelic elements maintaining a strong Nordic Black Metal influence combined with clean vocals. The album was released in 2015 by Avantgarde Music. On the 7th of November 2017, the third album "My Body My Time" was released once again by the well-known Italian label which differed greatly from its predecessors: it is the boldest and most emblematic album which touches unexplored Black Metal territories.
In April 2018  "Inferus" was ready to be released, which is an Ep with a completely different style; "Inferus" is a beautifully dissonant, chaotic and extremely dark work.
https://www.facebook.com/hornwoodfell/
Finally ready to unveil the alienating, obscure and mystic art of OBSOLETE THEORY! "Sirius' Blood" is the first song taken from "MUDNESS", debut album of the band, that will see the light on June 15th, 2018 via My Kingdoand you can enjoy it at https://youtu.be/5JWUZKMzMpo
"Mudness" is a manifesto of Atmospheric and Doomish Post-Black Metal with a broad range of influences like Behemoth, Agalloch, Katatonia, Solstafir, Alcest, Enslaved. Open your mind to a deep sonic shockwave.

NIKLAS KVARFORTH'S SHINING TO RELEASE ALBUM OF RARE MATERIAL :
To paraphrase Ray Bradbury "something old and wicked this way comes" in the shape of the long-deleted SHINING album "Oppression".  Set for release in September, "OPPRESSION" will be available in Digipack format, as well as limited edition gatefold vinyl versions in different colours.
"Oppression" will be released on the newly-formed Black Metal label Colourless Art and SHINING founder and frontmam Niklas Kvarforth had this to say about the release:
"For too long, some of my work has been in limbo due to idiotic decisions and the worthless people that  proliferate throughout the music industry.  And this needs to end here and now.  We want our jewels of perdition and the attendant horrific sound to reach all of those who, without SHINING's merchandising arm, Legions, cannot get their hands on these without being fobbed off with soulless products of inferior quality, that some outsider has had the nerve to spread without a single thought for our artistic vision".
For those who are not aware of the original album, "Oppression" is a collection of rare recordings and out-takes, mainly from the early days of SHINING's twenty two year career.  Included are the debut 7", some pre-production songs, weird electronica by Kvarforth.  And,  most intriguing for any SHINING fan out there, the cream of the crop is the inclusion of the celebrated but obscure studio track "Through Corridors Of Oppression".
Legions will also be issuing their own white vinyl edition of "Oppression" which will include a special poster.  Bundles are now available to pre-order from the Legions Webshop at http://www.shininglegions.com
As to what the future holds in store for both SHINING and himself, Kvarforth explained that:  "there is a lot happening right now. We are currently setting up upcoming tours for SHINING, working with all sorts of crazy shit,  while I myself will be recording with a very big Death Metal band, publishing the German edition of "When Prozac No Longer Helps" at long last,  and getting myself into shape for the shooting of a feature horror movie this summer.
But stay tuned, all will be revealed in time".

That ominous rumbling you heard was not a deception perpetrated by your ears, but rather a warning of a nefarious force emerging from the streets of Birmingham, Alabama. That force is KAMIKAZE ZOMBIE and Night of the Nuberus is now upon us. Released in September 2017, the time has arrive for the rest of the world to heed the warning and prepare for an old school crossover attack that combines black metal melodies, doom/sludge/death metal breakdowns, and in-your-face punk/thrash aggression with lyrical content inspired by horror films. And let's not forget about the serial-killer themed stage shows!
Stream Night of the Nuberus in its entirety by visiting the following link:  kamikazezombie.bandcamp.com/album/night-of-the-nuberus
The music of Night of the Nuberus was written by Clint Spain and Steve Cater, the former also penning the lyrics. The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Matthew Washburn (Mastodon) at LedBelly Sound Studio. Artwork and layout come courtesy of Shawn Knight.
Vocalist/Guitarist Clint Spain had this to say about the band's macabre creation:
"Night of the Nuberus is our first major release. We went for a horror movie vibe in writing and recording the album, like a love letter to old slasher movies and horror punk bands. But my love for the New Orleans scene, black metal and the Melvins definitely bleeds through."
Night of the Nuberus can also be purchased at  kamikazezombie.com/merchandise.html

DEMONIC OBEDIENCE – “ FATALISTIC UPRISAL OF ABHORRENT CREATION “
Genre: Death Metal
Label: Satanath Records/Sevared Records
Line up :
Kruxator - Vocals
George Ntavelas – Guitars
Mark Stormwhipper - Bass
Demonic Obedience started as a one man band which rose from the ashes of Deceptive Incarnation. Founded by George Ntavelas and George Seremetis in early 2013 under the name of ''The Deepest'', the band's future was destined to change, in a short period of time, from progressive Death Metal into an old school Death/Black Metal Beast! On August 1st, 2014, ''Morbid Supremacy of Evil',' their debut full-length, was released through Azermedoth Records (Mexico). In the next months Ntavelas was working already on new material for the band's sophomore album called ‘’Nocturnal Hymns to the Fallen’’, a more brutal and dark record which was released by Satanath Records (Russia). By the end of 2016, Kruxator (vocals) and Mark Stormwhipper (bass) joined the band and new tracks were written and recorded for the third album, ‘’Fatalistic Uprisal of Abhorrent Creation’’, a bestial album straight from the depths of Hell.
‘’Fatalistic Uprisal of Abhorrent Creation’’ was recorded at Deception Studio, Edinburgh, Scotland and mixed and mastered by Achilleas at Achillman Studios, Greece. PAINT-IT-BLACK.

Metal Hammer premiered the official video of the Portuguese black metal Gaerea HERE. Dom Lawson had this to say about it -  "Stylishly monochrome and unnervingly bleak, it’s a tantalising way to enter Gaerea’s pitch-black realm of madness."

BOTTOM – “ EPIDEMO”
Polish grindcore/death metal pioneers Bottom are releasing a brand new mini-album, entitled “Epidemo”, through Deformeathing Production on 18 May 2018 in CD and Digital formats. The new material follows up on their well-received album, “Psychofilia”, and includes six brand new tracks, a Lock Up cover and one re-recorded song from the band’s 2003 demo, “Hateful Music Terrorism”.
Bottom have been known for over 20 years as a melting pot of music genres, mixing grindcore and death metal with thrash metal and hardcore/punk inspirations. The new mini-album, “Epidemo”, is no different: ear-splitting guitars, unconventional, dense drums, a bass strike that tears out guts and two extremely angry vocalists. The album was recorded in ZED Studio under Tomasz Zalewski. Marcin Studziński of St. Chaos Art - Chaosmessage is responsible for all graphics.

LONELY GRAVE - "CRATERFACE"
On the first cold day of 2016, Ludvig Eriksson, Magnus Bergman and Johan Birve of previous Umeå bands such as Kira and The State The Sea Left Me In got behind instruments with the ambition to create a left field sonic force with fast, ear shattering songs. As a form of resistance against the big slick production of modern dark hardcore, the band decided to use minimum of gear with all three members being front singers to bring back the eeriness of underground metal.
Lonely Grave combines the punk-side of early grindcore and power violence with metal riffing an d occult shrieking vocals. Spanning from slow, haunting sections to relentless d-beat, creating a dynamic catalogue of songs with lyrical themes of delusion, god, lust and paranoia.

Finnish atmospheric sludge/doom band LURK boast of a fitting Adam Burke artwork for their varied yet mesmerising  music. Their style is unlike most you've heard - it's obscure, hallucinatory and strangely haunting. They're not trying to bludgeon you into submission; they take a subliminal route almost to break you down and get you addicted permanently. Listen to one of their songs on Bandcamp HERE, which was part of the 2018 label sampler
LURK (FINLAND) - 'FRINGE'
Gold LP Box Set / Gold LP / CD Box Set / Digipak CD / Merch / Digital (August 5th, 2018)
Genre - Atmospheric Sludge/Doom Metal
Release Date - August 5th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - Altar of Betelgeuze, Fleshpress, Adramelech, The Whorehouse Massacre, Abstracter, Jupiterian, Gaerea, Eibon
Wistful and mysterious, LURK's music is just as interesting and multi-faceted as their cover artwork. Blending elements of doom, black and death metal into their astounding sludge template, the Finnish band is taking the sound ahead in ways hitherto unheard. Haunting, soaring melodies juxtapose with abrasive low-end riffs without hampering the overall aesthetics. Watch the band take you into a slow, hallucinatory descent towards madness where multiple worlds coalesce and still make sense - that in a nutshell is the music of LURK.

DEADLY CARNAGE’s “Through the Void, Above the Suns” is a phenomenal journey, an unmatched vision of the Cosmos with all its tangible and intangible components: stars, dark matter, black holes. Forces that regulate it up through Light and Time. Each of those often intangible elements has been characterized and almost humanized, to transcend their original dimensions in order to explain themselves to us in an intelligible, universal language of knowledge and enlightenment. It’s a travel that proceeds from the infinitely small world of raw matter to infinite cosmic distances, where Time and Space finally coincide. After everything has been born and has made its course in a myriad of random possibilities, it comes to entropy, to the absolute frost, the loss of every light, the complete end. And, right after, the Universe starts to breath once again, and the eternal cycle restarts.
While in the past DEADLY CARNAGE have explored existentialism, with this new chapter they move towards an universal vision, halfway between science, philosophy, occultism and spirituality.
What to expect on the musical manifestation side? A wide vision and dark moods following a strong emotional gameplan. Some may recognize doomish shadings, expanding post-rock & shoegaze fields, but the experience still has to be lived…
“Through the Void, Above the Suns” is the fourth album of the band, but it is the first concept album in 12 years of activity. The processing of this album lasted about 4 years.
All previous works have been recorded with another singer, this is the first album with Alexios on vocals (Alexios was already the band's guitarist since 2011).
BIOGRAPHY
Deadly Carnage was born in 2005 from an idea of Adres (bass) and Marco (drums), after the first few periods of militancy in the Black/Thrash Metal scene, the intentions of the band begin to change; the sounds become more atmospheric and introspective. In 2007 Deadly Carnage began a slow shift away from the Black Metal scene in favor of Doom, Post-Rock and Post-Metal influences. This evolutionary period is crowned with the release of "Manthe" in 2014, but the change of Deadly Carnage has not set a limit, the intention of the band is to continue to experiment, evolve and explore new territories without posing musical limits, without barriers. "Through the Void, Above the Suns" represents another chapter in this evolving.
Through the Void, Above the Suns (Concept)
"There is a sacred geometry in the whispers of the strings, creating music in the space between spheres, take a journey through the Void, above the Suns. Start to inhale quantic hummings, vibrating, chaotic energy fills the void following the first information given: Birth, Create. Where no eye can create Matter with his sight, the real fabric of the universe create the basic pillars of the existence: the Hyle, in bright giant furnaces. And Cosmos can be called like so, following a second law: Procreate. So light trasmits the data of life. Light, Lumis, Light. Cosmos is living, Cosmos is breathing. And we are through Streams of Shine. Eye that creates Matter at sight, Matter that bends time at will, then Cosmos duplicate himself to be aware of his own potential. Segments, Ifenes, portions of frozen spacetime. A view of a giant infinite fractalized universal Tree, where every branches are a pulse of a Divide in the storming dusts of time. From infinite possibilities, universe create a multiverse, channeling in this line of spacetime. This is the choosen path. Cosmos is living, Cosmos is breathing. And all goes to repeat where dilute gases uniform to the void, time's exhale: End, Entropy. Cosmos is living, then he follows the third and last order given: Destroy, dragging its charm of absolute emptiness. But we are a single breathe of his quantic lung, feeling again a geometry, whispers inside spheres. We are travelling inside his body to keep it alive. Universe needs a conscious sentient being from the essence of stars. Cosmos is living. Cosmos is breathing.
And we are through Streams of Shine."

Another assault from Les Apôtres de l'Ignominie. Released in tape format in 2013, the longtime sold out first opus of MALEKHAMOVES (which means "Angel of Death" in Yiddish) is now available on vinyl format.
Total Raw Death Metal with french lyrics !
Deluxe Edition 3 mm spine, including a printed inner sleeve.Limited to 299 handnumbered copies.
The sinister new side of French death metal has a name: MALEKHAMOVES! Created in 2011 under the aegis of The Apostles Of Ignominy who already embrace Malhkebre, Darvulia and Sektarism. Malekhamoves goes far beyond bucolic melodies and a shitty “modern” technical/plastic sound. The Angel of Death presents doomed processions combined with brutal assaults and ultra-aggressive invocations!
Listen to this demo and feel the anger of the Apostles. A French death metal band with the balls to sing in French. A lot of pseudo-guardians of old schoold death values will certainly be shocked by this new horde, but we don’t care about theses conservatives cretins. Satan has no boundaries!
Featuring members of MALHKEBRE and SEKTARISM.
Remember that Death is the main goal of life, may it be its splendid achievement through the vortex of suffering!
MALEKHAMOVES has begun to work on their first full-length album, a seven-track opus of pure hatred.

SUPREME CARNAGE – “ MORBID WAYS TO DIE”
German old school death dealers Supreme Carnage have studied the work of those who came before them to great effect. Razor sharp riffs and tremolo-picked guitar leads are at the front of the charge on new song “The Fire Prevails,” supported by a tight rhythm section and vocal performance that combines guttural roars with powerful higher screams.

IN VAIN – “ IV”
In Vain came up from the musical concerns of a group of friends at Madrid, Spain. At the beginning, they played their favourite bands’ songs (Iron Maiden, Running Wild, Helloween...), but the next logical step in its evolution was to compose their own songs. Always working to get further, they recorded in 2009 their debut album entitled ‘Of Gods And Men’, where classic metal fuses with the 90s power metal and the more melodic thrash of Megadeth’s school. 
In January 2012 they release their second album, ‘In Death We Trust’, which further emphasizes the aggressiveness acquired by the band over the years, and with it they achieved national and international recognition. 
With Pablo Fernández (keyboards) leaving the band, and the failed search for a replacement, In Vain is definitely formed as a quartet, leaving aside the most classical aspect of his music, and focusing exclusively on speed and thrash metal, which are still well mixed with epic and melodic choruses of classic power metal in  third album ‘The Little Things That Matter’ which lead In Vain to play along with bands such as Freedom Call, Astral Doors, Axxis or Steel Wing
In 2017 “IV” is to be released, the most powerful and stunning album from the band. The best production ever reached in their career and the best songs they’ve ever made, make an album every fan of speed and powerful german power metal will love for sure.

Behind the locked doors that lie in the shadows, at the end of forgotten passageways, in the depths of every human mind...madness waits, scratching at the splintered wood with bleeding fingers. Insanity and depravity in all its many hues and colours – blood red to pitch black – kept concealed and restrained for the sake of our society; that thin wall of laws and empathy that saves us from ourselves. But sometimes those locks fail, or the keys are purposefully turned, unleashing the monsters from within. STRANGLE WIRE’S - THE DARK TRIAD is the sound of the monsters set free, the sound of broken minds and twisted personalities, the sound of an insidious assault on the light that keeps the night at bay.
Divided into three sections, entitled Narcissism, Psychopathy and Machiavellianism, The Dark Triad takes the listener into the dark heart of the human condition, propelling them ever onward with a musical force of savage intensity, death metal possessed of speed, groove and supreme heaviness.
“...every extreme Metal fan will bow down due their musical brutality...” – METAL TEMPLE
“...bucket loads of groove and ideas...” – AVE NOCTUM
“...crisp and very punchy...” – BLESSED ALTAR

Giuseppe Caruso started the MIND ENEMIES project in 2010 and recorded his first songs at Nadir Music in 2011, under the guidance of Tommy Talamanca of progressive death metallers Sadist.  In 2013 the first Mind Enemies EP was released and The Darkest Way received great reviews from around the world. A tour of Russia followed before Guiseppe settled down to work on the first full length Mind Enemies album, REVENGE.
Revenge combines immaculately structured songs with wonderful, spiralling lead work that lifts everything to another level. Guiseppe’s six string wizardry is breathtaking at times, but always woven expertly into the fabric of the songs in adorns, filling each song with life and colour. Songs like ‘My World’ balance intricate rhythm work and complex riffs with simple, melodic vocal lines, giving that accessible quality to the virtuoso music. Each song captures different moods and feelings, with the positivity of ‘Dream World’ providing a bright contrast to the contemplative ‘The Dark Life’. Revenge is an album of depth that rewards repeated listening, revealing more with each play, although the dextrous solos can spellbind in an instant.

Antihero Magazine has premiered "Forced Exodus," a song from MORGENGRAU's forthcoming album BLOOD ORACLE. Visit the following link to experience USDM devastation:  antiheromagazine.com/antihero-exclusive-morgengrau-blood-oracle/
Out of fire-blasted Texas comes MORGENGRAU, returning with sophomore album 
Blood Oracle, which will be available May 18 from Unspeakable Axe Records (the album will be available through international distribution channels on June 22). Pre-orders are available now at this location.
Decibel Magazine previously premiered the title track from Blood Oracle. The song can be streamed at  this location.  
The band's German name belies its American origins, just as much as its combination of Euro-death riffs and rhythms with the Floridian originators of the genre will keep listeners guessing.  With a vicious approach reminiscent of ASPHYX, PESTILENCE, DEICIDE and CELTIC FROST, Blood Oracle is eight tracks deep with the kind of death metal that the genre's most loyal fans will devour. It was produced by the great Harris Johns (Celtic Frost, Kreator, Pestilence, Voivod, and too many more to list), ensuring that its sound is honed to a fine edge.
Featuring atmospheric artwork by Nick Keller (who has done concept paintings for numerous movies including The Lord of the Rings and Mad Max: Fury Road, in addition to his stellar cover art for many bands), this album aims to surpass in every way MORGENGRAU's self-released debut. Blood Oracle will be available on CD and digital platforms.  NOTE: No band photo available. Any photo you find on the Internet will be inaccurate.
Track List:
1. Blood Oracle
2. Wolves of Thirteen
3. Progression
4. Poised at the Precipice of Doom
5. Forced Exodus
6. Invert the Marker
7. Incipit Bellum
8. Evocation of the Wheel

Polish doom-death pioneers MORDOR have revealed a brand new music video to the track “Dark Room”. The song comes off their first album in 21 years, entitled “DARKNESS…”, which was released on 20 April 2018 via Pagan Records.  
View the video
:  https://youtu.be/GNWEropKxeM  
“Dark Room” was directed by Ra V K Silesia and produced by D R Silesia. The executive producer was Paul Slaughter, and the cast includes Jolene Wolovich and Bartosz Żyngiel. 
Mordor are one of the precursors of Polish doom metal. Established in 1990 in Częstochowa, they have quickly become one of the most respected Polish doom-death bands. This was confirmed with the favourable response to their “Nothing” (1992) demo and the debut album “Prayer to…” (1993), both receiving positive reviews from around the world.
The comeback album, “Darkness…”, was recorded at No Solace Studio with production duties taken care of by M. of Mgła fame. Consisting of six tracks, it is a return to the band’s roots, naturally continuing from the band’s days in the early 90s when Mordor where one of the first representatives of Polish doom-death metal. Listeners should expect heavy riffs, strong, deep vocals and a massive sound. In short, it is a return to the old atmosphere with a much stronger sound.

Finnish death metal band Sadistik Forest are changing things up a bit without diminishing any of their trademark pummelling. Their latest album is clearly the best one yet and is receiving a terrific response. US-based site Heavy Blog Is Heavy premiered a crushing track AT THIS LINK, where the writer Jonathan Adams summed it up beautifully - "The Finnish juggernauts onto something special with their new record, and “Morbidly Majestic” is the perfect example of what makes their brand of death metal great. Hail the kings of Finland! Long may they reign."
SADISTIK FOREST (FINLAND) - 'MORBID MAJESTIES'
Autographed Metallic Green-embossed Box Set / CD / Merch / Digital (May 25, 2018)
Genre - Death Metal
Release Date - May 25th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - Funebre, Grave, Bolt Thrower, Demilich,  (early) Amorphis, (early) Cadaver, Xysma, Cannibal Corpse
Finnish death metal is known for its quality, and Sadistik Forest are another band to testify to that fact. They're gnarlier than their contemporaries and play a mix of death metal that not only pays homage to the genre's greats but also fuses the sound in a way that's refreshing and also powerful. Guttural vocals by ex-Hooded Menace member soar over the music that borrows elements from doom as well as black metal and yet remains distinctly death metal in its sonic output. Pulsating and heaving like an anguished monster, Sadistik Forest's music rampages over the course of 35 minutes, leaving you beaten down, sore, and asking for more.

NOCTURNAL BREED – “THE WHISKEY TAPES”
Label: Folter Records
Vertrieb: Alive
VÖ: 31.05.2018
Die legendären norwegischen Black/Thrasher NOCTURNAL BREED melden sich zurück! Und obendrein haben sie ein ganz besonderes Geschenk für ihre treue Anhängerschaft in Deutschland im Gepäck. Denn „The Whiskey Tapes“ sind eine exklusive Zusammenstellung mit bislang unveröffentlichtem Material. Geplant sind zudem weitere Versionen, doch die deutsche Version, die „The Whiskey Tapes Germany“, sollten für jeden NOCTURNAL BREED-Anhänger vier Jahre nach dem letzten vollwertigen Album „Napalm Nights“ eine ganz besondere Veröffentlichung sein. Neben Demoversionen, alten Songs und exklusiv fürs hiesige Publikum ausgewählten Stücken findet sich auch der Song „Evil Dead“ zu Ehren Chuck Schuldiners (Ex-Death, † 13. Dezember 2001). Die Band selbst lässt folgendes verlauten:
„Für uns ist diese Veröffentlichung etwas ganz Besonderes, wie es auch die deutschen Fans für uns sind! Die Teutonen waren immer eine unserer größten Unterstützergruppen, und nun in der Lage zu sein, ein handgemachtes Album für das deutsche Behagen zu haben, ist ein großes Ding für uns. Für die Band ist dies ein Non-Profit-Release, es soll einfach nur ein Geschenk von Nocturnal Breed an die deutschen Fans sein, als Dankeschön dafür, dass sie immer da waren und immer die wahre Essenz von Metal-Musik unterstützt haben. Hier sind also zwölf alte und rare Versionen und Tracks für euch, um dazu zu headbangen, außerdem vier absolut exklusive Tracks, die nur auf die teutonischen Herzen da draußen zielen.“
Natürlich wurde das Material neu gemastert, um ein bestmögliches Headbang-Erlebnis zu garantieren. Dieses ist man sei 1996 von NOCTURNAL BREED gewohnt, die sich über die Jahre mit unzähligen Shows und Alben als feste Underground-Größe etabliert haben!

TAINA – “SEELENFRESSER”
Genre: Industrial Metal
Label: Viy Records
VÖ:  11.05.2018
Die deutschen Industrial Metaller TAINA melden sich endlich mit ihrem ersten Album! Gegründet wurde die Band im Oktober 2010 von Sänger und Synth-Spieler WoLand und Gitarrist SerZh. Ihre erste EP folgte im Februar 2012, gefolgt von zwei Video-Auskopplungen. Schnell erarbeiteten sich TAINA in Szenekreisen einen exzellenten Ruf, auch weil sie live dem Publikum den Atem rauben. Nach ihrer ersten Show im Dezember 2012 führte es die Band auch von den hiesigen Bühnen weg auf solche in Ländern wie Russland, der Schweiz und Luxemburg. Als Support-Act punkteten TAINA bereits im Vorprogramm von Bands wie ASP, FEUERENGEL und STAHLZEIT.
Der Grundstein ist ein vielversprechendes Konzept, das sich an Industrial-, Metal- und Rock-Elementen bedient und stets eine Horror-Ästhetik verströmt, die dunkle Zeitgenossen sofort in ihren Bann zieht. Ab April 2015 ist Drummer Hannes fester Bestandteil der Band. Selbst ins TV schafften es TAINA bereits … und das nicht nur irgendwohin. Sondern zum CIRCUS HALLIGALLI bei Pro7, wo sie im November 2015 einige Snippets aus ihrem jetzigen Album "Seelenfresser" vorstellten.  In Form eines von Horrorfilmen inspirierten Videos ließen TAINA im Oktober 2016 den ersten längeren Vorgeschmack auf ihr Debütalbum folgen. Kurz darauf haben sich die Bremer mit dem Electro-Musikproduzenten ZARDONIC zusammengetan, um einen Remix des Titeltracks "Seelenfresser" aufzunehmen und diesen als Musikvideo im Januar 2017 auf die Menschheit loszulassen.
Im Sommer 2017 ging es auf die Festivalbühnen, unter anderem traten TAINA auf dem Wacken Open Air, dem Wave Gotik Treffen (WGT) und dem Autumn Moon Festival auf. Im September 2017 schloss sich Bassist Marcel der Band an. Im selben Monat folgte die dritte Single "Perfekte Dunkelheit", auf die im März 2018 die vierte Single "Teil von mir" folgte. Am 11. Mai 2018 hat das lange Warten endlich ein Ende und "Seelenfresser" wird als Meilenstein in die TAINA-Bandhistorie eingehen!

US death metallers TORN THE FUCK APART premiere "Invitation Homicide" on NoCleanSinging at this location:  http://www.nocleansinging.com/2018/04/26/an-ncs-premiere-torn-the-fuck-apart-invitation-homicide/
NCS comments on the track: «With a name like Torn the Fuck Apart, this Kansas City death metal band might not be one whom you would expect to practice subtlety in their musical creations. And indeed, there is a fundamentally eviscerating quality to what they’ve done on their newest album, A Genetic Predisposition to Violence. But the music isn’t sheer brute-force blood-letting either, as you’ll discover when you listen to the track we’re presenting today, the name of which is “Invitation Homicide“.
"A Genetic Predisposition to Violence", is set to be released on June 29th 2018 via Gore House Productions.

OCCULT HARD ROCKERS ACÂRASH DEBUT A TRACK FROM THEIR UPCOMING ALBUM :  With the 8th June set for the release of "IN CHAOS BECROWNED",  the debut full-length album from Norwegian Occult Hard Rockers ACÂRASH, Dark Essence Records have given fans a taste of what to expect by revealing the opening track " Cadaver Dei", about which the band has this to say:
"Cadaver Dei" is our way of welcoming you to the tomb of ACÂRASH. The track is a celebration of the free spirit and the will to rebel against all that reduces life. To us the concept of opposition is an essential philosophical theme, acknowledging spiritual contradictions and human mortality. True opposition is a progressive and noble act of thought."
"Cadaver Dei"  can be heard at the following:

ACÂRASH, whose lineup comprises Sølve Sæther on drums, Lukas Paulsen on guitars and Anlov P. Mathiesen on bass and vocals, was formed in Oslo in the fall of 2016.  It is a lineup that embraces tradition and is able to take the varied influences its individual members have gleaned from being part of bands such as LONELY KAMEL, ZECTION8, FAUSTUS and DEEP REST,  in order to create a sound that is fresh and distinctly theirs.
By seamlessly blending hard rock, doom and black metal, ACÂRASH  creates  soundscapes in which esoteric poetry and ritualistic contemplation are central to the music.  And, with "In Chaos Becrowned", the band demonstrates a marked ability to reinvent, whilst at the same time,  preserve, in order to deliver a record that explores and develops the boundaries of rock and metal, and naturally alternates between raw catchiness, dark introspection, and progressive playfulness.
Mixed and mastered by Ruben Willem at the Caliban Studios in Oslo,  and with artwork by Lasse Almqvist Scherven, tracklisting for "In Chaos Becrowned", which will be released in Digi CD and LP formats, is as follows:
1. Cadaver Dei
2. Shadows Roam
3. Gathering of Crows
4. In Chaos Becrowned
5. Ashes of the Mortal Mind
6. Legio Obscura
7. Sacrifice the Winter Wolf
8. Cenotaph in Flesh
"In Chaos Becrowned" is now available to pre order from the following:

Portuguese thrash metallers RASGO have published a video for the track "HOMENS AO MAR", which was recorded on March 7th with the "Circulo de Musica de Camara" Orchestra, directed by Pedro Teixeira Silva.
"Homens Ao Mar" (translates into "men overboard"), showcases a band that is not afraid of exploring and creating a solid musical output, while showing their ability to musically adapt to different environments.
This track is, without any doubt, an intriguing listen but a very quality-oriented one that combines two very distinct universes, and that will work with all the open minded thrashers out there, as well as the symphonic metal fans.
"We had the dream of giving this track a really epic dimension and that's the reason why we've decided to record it with an orchestra.
We're very pleased with the final result and we feel this work is a giant step in our journey!
In fact, we like to take risks, break barriers and do new things that, as far as I'm concerned, were never done by other portuguese thrash metal band...
Debuting at the Coliseum with Slayer was already something unique and recording with the orchestra was another great achievement."

US Doom Metallers VESSEL OF LIGHT (featuring Nathan Opposition of ANCIENT VVISDOM and Dan Lorenzo of HADES) reveal cover artwork and track-list of their highly anticipated album “WOODSHED”.
About the album concept, Nathan says: “Woodshed is a twisted plot involving a torturer and his numerous victims, his devious plan to kill in the name of God, and the mental breakdown that follows. The consequences of murderous actions that tell a tale of ritualistic sacrifice, homicide/ suicide, offerings to "the holy Lord", and the truth behind the lies of reality. The content is dark and cold. A drugged out murder spree by a man haunted by the voices of the dead.”
VESSEL OF LIGHT released the official videoclip for their new song “Son Of A Man”, featured on the album and available here:
https://youtu.be/LFI3YaPgesA
“Son Of A Man” has been critically acclaimed as an impressive step forward highly recommended to fans of Danzig, Corrosion of Conformity and Alice in Chains.
By commenting this new album, Dan Lorenzo said: "Woodshed is a title that has intrigued me for a while now. I consider myself a songwriter more than a true musician. I know serious musicians will say they are 'woodshedding' or practicing a lot. In the winter when it's cold out in New Jersey, I definitely pick up a guitar more than I do in the summer..not to 'practice', but to write new music. The woodshed in American culture has traditionally been a place where someone goes to work on something often secretly. In the old days it might be where a parent goes to give their child a beating. Sometimes the woodshed could be used to hide nefarious things that nobody is supposed to find out about. Nathan took this concept and created lyrical genius. It's fucking dark as hell man."
VESSEL OF LIGHT teamed-up with renowned Italian artist Marco Castagnetto (
www.zenpunkart.com) to give their visions a proper form by realizing a stunning cover artwork.

WAIL – “WISDOM THROUGH AGONY INTO ILLUMINATION AND LUNACY VOL. II”
Label: Triumphant Transgressions
Genre: Eclectic Doom/Black Metal
The album's main idea builds on a seeming dualism, on a representation of how the concept of W.A.I.L. includes a whole scale of both negative and positive aspects. Instead of making a strict distinction between the two - for example stating that good and evil are independent and stand-alone entities – They try to show how everything is interconnected. The dualistic illusiveness springs to life from their mind's attempt to make sense of All; in other words, a lot depends on which side of the coin they're looking at, or which aspect of their name they're representing at a given time. Things that appear contradictory and entirely different are, in the end, just the flip sides of the same coin, and therefore parts of a big oneness, which reveals itself through all seeming disparities.
This oneness, in other words the concept of W.A.I.L, only manifests itself, and we then qualitatively evaluate this radiance of energies from their own viewpoints. The album's concept celebrates both the negative and positive aspects - and everything between them in their purest archetypal forms, as they haven't been processed through the ego filter which man starts to build from his birth. In other words, the album's concept studies the notion of oneness, the connections of polarities in a huge labyrinth, and aspires to dive under the surface of these so-called opposites where a thicker depth opens. They pursue a wider understanding of the heart-core, of the purest primary condition, that pumps beyond the deep ocean and also, paradoxically, in its midst.
Their work therefore also reflects man itself; it is organic and paradoxical, a radiating comprehensive being, the distinct rays and energies of which can only be classified, for example, as occultistically or politically charged. This doesn't mean, however, that disparity (of any kind) couldn't be found at least on the surface level or that the manifestations of energies in the matter couldn't under any circumstance be qualitatively classified and/or put into their own places. Even though all the rays emanate from the same core, many of them shine brighter than the others. While the former reach over mountains and forests, the latter remain at the murky and muddy bottom of deep seas. The radiance of some of the rays, on the other hand, is completely invisible or incomprehensible to us, but they all fulfill their own meaning and paradigm. Every thing different, every thing of different value. This full-length strives to reach a more veritable platform that fathoms the spirit and doesn't stop at its own individual trivialities but instead continues to be ever-moving and incessant, dictated by the cosmic laws. It's an attempt to discover our transcendental self which is not, however, separate from us; it's an attempt to be one with the absolute.

A.E. - Guitars, vocals 
S.F. - Drums, percussions, bass, additional solo guitars, kantele, recorder, didgeridoo, synthesizer, grand piano

US site Indy Metal Vault premiered the title track of the groundbreaking release by Australian death metallers Depravity AT THIS LINK. Senior editor Clayton T. Michaels had to this say about it – 
DEPRAVITY (AUSTRALIA) - 'EVIL UPHEAVAL'
Autographed Gold-embossed Box Set / CD / Merch / Digital (April 30th, 2018)
Genre - Death Metal
Release Date - April 30th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Immolation, Morbid Angel, The Furor, Hour of Penance, Suffocation, Ingurgitating Oblivion, Drawn and Quartered, Origin
Death metal was meant to be an assault on the senses but somewhere along the way bands started taking it easy, getting complacent. Enter Depravity from Australia. They show us how it's to be done, to play devastating death metal without straying from the genre's roots. This is what Morbid Angel should've sounded like today. There's no going back or forth. This is it. This is the fiercest expression of death metal while remaining relevant. Louis Rando (Impiety, The Furor) and his team of musicians conjure up a maelstrom of wicked death metal that lays waste to all else. Vile, twisted and deafeningly heavy, 'Evil Upheaval' is one of the most powerful albums you'll bear witness to this year. 
Mixed and mastered at Hertz Studios (Behemoth, Vader) 
Artwork by Alex Tartsus (Sinister, De Profundis) 
Line up: 
Drums - Louis Rando (Impiety, The Furor)
Guitar - Lynton Cessford (Entrails Eradicated)

Rogers (AR) - Black/Death Metal duo TORII will release their new full-length album, A JUDGEMENT DIVINE, on June 8.  The album's first single, "The Grand Banquet," is streaming at torii.bandcamp.com/album/a-judgement-divine
Though black and death metal are core elements, the basic description doesn't quite capture the breadth of the music, colored as it is with post-metal grays and streaks of doom. Multi-instrumentalist/lyricist Bill Masino and vocalist/lyricist Eric May have created yet another masterwork of oppressive darkness and an intensity that burns continually, all of which confirms Toilet ov Hell's praise of TORII as "undoubtedly the single best unsigned band in the entire Razorback State of Arkansas." Topped off with stunning cover artwork by Cornelius van Haarlem (depicting two followers of Cadmus devoured by a Dragon, 1588), A Judgement Divine is nothing short of a watershed release.
Track List
1. Army of Sand
2. Theory of Existence 
3. The Grand Banquet
4. Dirus Serpens
5. Gates of Paradise II - The Cold Masque of Romance
6. A Judgement Divine
BIO
TORII is a two piece metal band based out of Rogers, Arkansas.  Bill Masino (all instruments / artwork / occasional lyrics) and Eric May (all vocals / lyrics / writings)  began working together in 2013 with their debut album, The Shadow of the Mountain.  Since then TORII has released  Elabrynth  (2014) and  Gates of Paradise    (2016).

MATALOBOS – “UNTIL TIME HAS LOST ALL MEANING”
Genre: Melodic doom death metal 
Record label: Concreto Records 
Line up:
E. Santamaría – Guitars
Dante – Vocals
De Anda – Bass
C. Escalona – Drums
Germán N. – Guitars, strings
After gratefully received first full length “Arte Macabro”, Mexico’s Melodic Death/Doom band, Matalobos, presents their next musical and emotive opus entitled “UNTIL TIME HAS LOST ALL MEANING”. This material focuses in three crucial facets of the human being: Abandon, somatization and pain embracement.
Secretly recorded and mixed at Urvn Studios by longtime producer, Rubén Sánchez (Vst, Majestic Downfall) in Leon, Mexico, during June/July 2017.
Mastered by Swedish metal giant, Dan Swanö at Unisound in Krefeld, Germany.
Horrific artwork illustration made by Brazilian artist Elias Aquino, shows the decadence and yet beauty of the human skeleton laying in his coffin, yearning for the life that has left.
“UNTIL TIME HAS LOST ALL MEANING” is digitally available NOW at Matalobos Bandcamp page (link below) and is out now in coproduction with Concreto Records and Wolfcave Prods within an old school envelope edition limited to 500 copies.
Biography
Guided by darkness and melancholy this band takes life late 2014 with the only purpose of go right into the core of the inner self, that place feared by ones, beloved by others, our true faces; Matalobos started when Eduardo decided to end his former band and start to write new material for a more metal/dark oriented project with Dante, also vocalist on his previous band, they made a couple of songs and got in touch with longtime friends and music colleagues, Clemente the drummer, and bass player De Anda, and so, after some preproduction sessions they entered Urvn Studios (León, México) to record their first E.P. from February to March of 2015, so it will be released that year by Inductive Oppression Records, reaching a melancholic death metal sound together with doom passages. After EP recording them asked Germán N. to join as live session guitarist and also strings composer for upcoming dates and writing sessions.
After many months of promotion and shows all over the country for Matalobos EP, they started working on writing and preproduction for their first full length entitled ARTE MACABRO. Marking November 2015 the month when they officially returned Urvn Studios with producer Rubén Sánchez to begin with all recording sessions. One month later first LP was done, so promotion and label arrangements began to finally release their album July 26th 2016 via Concreto Records, and with this came new shows and a tour in Mexico center, south and north at their most important cities and venues as Café Iguana in Monterrey and Circo Volador in Mexico City. ARTE MACABRO mixes all Matalobos influences and feelings with a more macabre and aggressive vibe, including their characteristic acoustic passages and sentimental guitar fills.
Following this line, and with that hunger for music, the band started working in some new tones as continuation of ARTE MACABRO, after a collaborative writing process the band decided to return to Urvn Studios during June/July 2017 to work with recordings and mixes by Rubén Sánchez and mastering by Dan Swanö at Unisound, Germany. This new music act entitled UNTIL TIME HAS LOST ALL MEANING, Matalobos reaches a more melodic and so aggressive side of the band, going through old school passages and a concept inspired totally in death and somatization of pain. This latest work was released as collaboration with Concreto Records in November 2nd, 2017, and it has been followed up by a number of promotion shows that will be taking part during the current year.

Established in Katowice, Poland in 2003, Furia are the godfathers of “Nekrofolk”. They are the most popular and prolific creation of the Let the World Burn collective. They took Polish black metal to entirely new regions with unique elements of folk and abstract poetic themes. Influenced by the dark beauty of their home province of Silesia, their music is spiced up with lyrics written by Nihil, who is one of the most gifted Polish artists of the decade. Following the release of their latest studio effort, “Księżyc milczy luty”, the band reached a new level with theatrical performances, entitled “Wesele”, at one of Europe's most acclaimed theatrical stages; a tour of Japan; and a headline tour of Poland. Furia have also performed at prestigious festivals such as Roadburn, Brutal Assault, Throne Fest, Off Festival, Primavera Sound, Castle Party and Motocultor. 2018 sees Furia take their live shows to even more stages in Europe.

Verdammt,man wird wirklich langsam alt und kommt mit seinem Leben nicht mehr ganz klar !Eigentlich solltet ihr dieses Wochenende so ziemlich leer ausgehen ,was neuste Informationen aus dem metallischen Geschehen betrifft .Denn man wollte wirklich mal abschalten und bei nem Treffen mit den ganzen Metalkumpels (kumpelinen) mal ein bissel neue Energie tanken und ganz einfach mal ein paar freie Tage genießen . Aber schon scheiße ,wenn man dann den Termin falsch in seinen knacke vollen Terminkalender einträgt, sich um ne satte Woche vermacht und das Wochenende dann bereits schon wieder anderweitige Versprechungen gemacht hat …..Naja ,so ganz haut das halt mit dem alten Geist nun wirklich nicht mehr hin . Im Moment ist man eh nicht so super toll drauf ,da irgendwie absolut nichts so läuft ,wie man das will oder wie man sich das vorstellt  ,man von allen möglichen Leuten hängen gelassen wird und auch im Allgemeinen die Zeichen nun nicht gerade auf Sturm stehen .Vielleicht sollte man doch mal etwas kürzer treten und sich dann irgendwann mal mehr aufs wirklich wichtige im Leben konzentrieren !???? Einziger kleiner positiver Punkt an der ganzen „geistigen Verwirrung“ ist zumindestens ,dass ihr da draußen nun doch wieder ein paar aktuelle updates bekommt , welche hoffentlich wenigstens Euch noch ein bissel aus dem tristen Alltag heraus holen können .

Hallo, Wir sind MASCHARAT, eine italienische Black Metal Band, die 2010 in Mailand entstanden ist. Am 15. September 2017 wurde unser namengebendes Album Mascharat in eine limitierte Auflage von 500 Kopies bei Séance Records veröffentlicht.
Die Album besteht aus 9 Lieder:
Intro
Bauta
Médecin de peste
Mora
Vestibolo
Simulacri
Iniziazione
Rito
Outro
Das Wort Mascharat stammt aus der arabischen Sprache her, in der es „schlechter Scherz, Eulenspiegelei” und „chaotische-und-immoralische Umstand” bedeutet. Es liegt zugrunde dem Wort „Maske". Begrifflich lassen wir uns tatsächlich von den Masken und der Tradition des Karnevals inspirieren.
Das Album stellt die Fortsetzung und den Abschluss der selbstproduzierte Demo dar, die im 2014 veröffentlicht wurde, und ist wie eine symbolische Erzählung strukturiert. Es wird einen Initiationsweg in verschiedenen Phasen dargestellt, die von den Masken angeführt sind. Dieser Weg fängt mit dem Umsturz der moralischen und sozialen Werte und mit der Zerstörung eigener Identität an, um sich später zu eine neue Wahrheit zu bekennen.
Unsere Liedtexte, die vorwiegend auf Italienisch verfasst sind, mit Aushanhen von Médecin de peste, dass in französich ist, gehen großenteils die Literatur, die Religion und die Philosophie an, aber das Wichtigste für uns bleibt immer, eine originale Erzählung gemäß unseren ästhetischen und künstlerischen Prinzipien zu erschaffen. In dem Booklet sind alle originelle Liedtexte von englischen Übersetzungen begleitet.
Vielen Dank für Eure Aufmerksamkeiten . Mit besten Grüßen .Mascharat

Gearing up for the upcoming release of their eight studio album, ORDINUL NEGRU announce line-up changes. Here’s what the band had to say:
“There were two years of intense work for our upcoming album “FAUSTIAN NIGHTS”. Our dear friend and vocalist, S did not had the possibilities to involve as much as we would have wanted in this process because Ordinul Negru evolved quite unexpected from a project into a proper band, so the distance between our cities was a key factor for the rehearsals and different projects we were involved in.
S will still be present with us as a guest for live events when our paths will cross, also he recorded vocals for a song on the new album and we are sure that in the future will remain involved on different levels in Ordinul Negru.”
The new line-up is:
Fulmineos – guitars, vocals
Urmuz – guitars, vocals
Orthros – bass
Putrid – drums and percussions
The band’s previous album, Sorcery of Darkness, was released at the end of 2015 in collaboration with Loud Rage Music, and was highly praised by both fans and specialized media. Sorcery of Darkness is still available here:

ANCIENT LIGHTS – “ANCIENT LIGHTS”
Label: Ritual Porductions
Ancient Lights refuse to tread worn sonic terrain with their debut, instead crafting a dynamic and textured journey that explores pastures of darkness, ambience, radiance and disintegration. Comprised of members of esteemed bands of the heavy palette, the origins of the band came after 13 shadowy years of jammed discourse and psychic plotting between Adam Richardson (11PARANOIAS, Ramesses) and Ben Carr (5ive, INTRCPTR), with the optimal addition of Tim Bertilsson (Switchblade) catalysing the final reality of this band.
The bell finally tolls and we are immensely pleased to announce Ritual Productions shall be releasing Ancient Lights’ debut rite this summer, incoming July 6th! The label announced the band’s signing last year and after many dedicated and crucial hours of meticulous crafting, the final result is a monolithic debut for Ritual Productions with enough material to warrant the release of a double LP!
 Formed on the instinctual and perceptive jamming between the three pillars of the band, foundations build and soar into an otherworldly plane - resulting in a rite that is solemnly foreboding yet gorgeously ethereal. Melodic quietude meets searing guitars and tempos flicker and manifest though careful increments and unseen bursts of velocity. One marker of Ancient Lights is the monastic-like vocals buried within the mix that resound deep within your brain, amplifying the ritualistic and lulling hues that enable imaginative escape.  Tracks such as ‘Temple Ghosts’, ‘Asakai Dasa’ and ‘Miasmaculatum’ burrow into murky, distorted depths that tumble amongst ruin whereas ‘Orichalcum Eater’ and ‘Fallow Year’ offer a sense of radiant space and dreamy psychedelic tones.
 Song structures dissolve and the material world is left behind when you enter Ancient Lights’ realm. Here ambience interlocks with darkness, quietude binds to loudness and blissful hypnotics deluge into doom. Unorthodox in its creation, structure and release, this debut rite is a colossal 70-minute venture – with Side C of the LP housing the entirety of the near 17-minute track ‘Against Nature’. Immerse yourself and preview the tracks ‘Decaying Lotus’, ‘Vessel of Inevitability’ (CD bonus track) and ‘Temple Ghosts’ by following the link below...
ANCIENT LIGHTS is:
Tim Bertilsson – drums
Adam Richardson – bass, guitar, vocals & lyrics
Ben Carr – guitar
The band's debut rite was recorded at Bonafide Studios, London under the spell of the 2017 summer solstice, by Dan Miller. Additional recording by Ben Carr and Adam Richardson in June 2017 at XL Recordings Studio. Mixing and mastering by Dan Miller and Adam Richardson in December 2017 at XL Recordings Studio, London.

DEVIL’S HOUND – “LEFT IN DISSOCIATION”
Creating simple music since July 2015, Devil's Hound is a one-man-project with one voice and one guitar. The main issues addressed are love and horror, good and evil - dichotomies with which we have to live.
If the early releases contained lyrics with short fiction/horror stories created by the artist himself and influences by movies featuring Vincent Price, Devil's Hound’s concept changed with the demo "Depressive Letters" (February, 2017) when Dean Noir decided to make his project darker by including autobiographical subjects such as depression, anxiety, loss and disorientation.
The end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 were prolific moments for the creation of small pieces divided into singles or demos with two tracks each. Thus arrives "Left in Dissociation" (March, 2018), a compilation that includes songs from "The Ones Who Left Too Soon..."(2018), "Dissociation"(2018) and "Pressure"(2017).
As usual, the production may sound a little poor and simplistic, but as long as the message is transmitted it's all right for Dean Noir – the man behind the project knows it and wants it that way. Devil's Hound is suitable for fans of Of The Wand And The Moon, Sol Invictus and early King Dude.

ET MORIEMUR (CZECH REPUBLIC) - 'EPIGRAMMATA'
Gold-embossed and UV-laminated Box Set / Digipak CD with booklet / Merch / Digital (March 20th, 2018)

For fans of - Towards Atlantis Lights, Illimitable Dolor, Rotting Christ, Batushka, (early) Opera IX, Thergothon, Skepticism, Disembowelment, Bell Witch, Spectral Voice
Et Moriemur are doing things in an exceptional way for their upcoming full length titled 'Epigrammata'. Delving into the rich European history, imbibing Gregorian chanting and using Latin and ancient Greek to convey their message, the Czech supergroup of sorts with members of bands such as Dissolving of Prodigy, Self-Hatred and Silent Stream of Godless Elegy, have assembled a host of musicians playing cello, violin, trombone among others and have even employed services of a choir to take their expression to another level. They combine influences of death, doom and even a bit of black metal and use their operatic flair to imbue it with a mesmerizing quality. It transcends the perceptions of the death/doom style at present and gloriously brings back forgotten elements to elevate it.

GUILLOTINE- “GUILLOTINE”
Genre: black/death/doom
Release date: October 7th, 2017
Record label: self-released
Their seven-track eponymous effort melds a spectrum of heavy sounds ranging from ponderous doom to screeching blackened hell-scapes into a coherent and well-structured organism, with each song capable of standing on its own. Elegantly brutal in its deliberate simplicity, the album delivers immediate satisfaction, in addition to delayed gratification as it reveals its secrets to the repeat listener. Be prepared to journey into a bleak world with strange tales of ancient aliens, time travel, and vampire worm deities. The future is bright for this young band as they begin to work on their forthcoming second offering. 
In an age of decay, the world cries out for metal that delivers with power and reverence for the gods who came before. In answer to the call rises Guillotine, groovy death metal crusaders hailing from Athens and Atlanta, Georgia. Harnessing the sonic extremes of death and black metal while executing with nuance and subtlety, Guillotine is a harbinger of drastic change, of revolution. Heads will roll.
Guillotine was first conceived in 2003 in rural southwest Georgia.  After more than a decade of hibernation, brothers Lance and Adam Miller resurrected Guillotine in 2015 with fresh ideas and direction. Drummer Evan Posey has since joined the lineup, adding his brutal metal pummeling to the Miller brothers’ oozing grooves.  In 2016, Guillotine began playing shows with an album’s worth of original songs, which were immortalized in June 2017 at Ledbelly Sound Studio with Matthew Washburn at the helm recording, mixing, and mastering. This album bears a sound intrinsic to the Miller brothers, combining traces of black metal, old school death metal, and NOLA sludge to create a massive wall of crushing doom.  With lyrical themes of time travel, ancient aliens, interdimensional vampire gods, and conspiracy theories galore, the album sets the scene of the conceptual universe in which the stories of Guillotine will be told.  Feast your ears upon what is only the first taste of Guillotine.

After exclusive premieres at Metal Injection and No Clean Singing, respected publication Decibel Magazine premiered a stunning track AT THIS LINK. It's one of the boldest and most aggressive tracks ever composed by the band. The other songs can be streamed over at Bandcamp  HERE
DE PROFUNDIS (UK) - 'THE BLINDING LIGHT OF FAITH'
Gold-embossed Box Set / 8-Panel Digipak CD / Merch / Digital (May 10th, 2018)
Genre - Death Metal
Release Date - May 10th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - (early) Opeth, Dismember, Edge of Sanity, Hypocrisy, Vader, Pestilence, Ursinne, Bolt Thrower
Long-running death metal band De Profundis have had an illustrious career. Over the years, they've kept perfecting their sound which incorporated progressive as well as melodic elements, and for their fifth full length, they've distilled only the best qualities into a massive death metal slab that's emotive yet powerful. 'The Blinding Light Of Faith' is a bold step forward for the band into heavier territories as they eschew long, winding songs and go straight for the jugular. With a new logo made by Gary Ronaldson (Misery Index, Benighted) and a gnarly album artwork by Alex Tartsus (Sinister, Depravity) depicting the band's anti-religious stance, De Profundis are confident of their direction and this promises to be their best album thus far. It's a quintessential death metal album that manages to showcase diversity without compromising on the heaviness.
Line up: 
Shoi Sen - Lead and Rhythm Guitars 
Arran McSporran - Fretless Bass

Über Tons
Die Truppe spielt – hüstel – tonnenschweren Doom-Sludge mit einer gewissen Hardcore-Attitüde. Dämonisch-düster und mit einigen der geilsten Songtiteln der letzten Zeit um die Ecke kommend:
´Abbath´s Psychedelic Breakfast´, ´99 Weed Balloons´, ´Those Of The Unlighter´, ´Girl Scout Cookie Monster´, ´Sailin´ The Seas Of Buddha Cheese´ usw.
Usw.? Ach nee, mehr Songs sind ja gar nicht auf der Platte.
Denn TONS zelebrieren ihre Riffungetüme ausschweifend, verlieren aber nie den roten Faden aus den Augen.
Kurzum: "Filthy Flowers Of Doom" ist ein absolutes Highlight im nicht gerade schwachen Katalog von Heavy Psych Sounds!

SCHRAT – „ALPTRAUMGÄNGER“
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Folter Records
Vertrieb: Alive
SCHRAT sind eine dieser Underground-Bands, die sich langsam aber stetig ihren Ruf in der Szene erarbeitet haben. Konsequent und kompromisslos ihrem Pfad folgend, erschuf das bayrische Trio Werke voller Finsternis und eisiger Kälte. Das neue Album "Alptraumgänger" stellt nun den Abschluss einer weiteren Schaffensperiode dar, die sich über die letzten Jahre zog und nun in einem fulminanten Finale mündet. Auf "Alptraumgänger" erwartet den Hörer eine fortschreitende Reise in die Vergangenheit, die sich über zwei thematische Teile hinweg zieht. Stilistisch zeichnen sich die Songs durch einen stärkeren Fokus auf Aggressivität und Brutalität aus, jedoch immer mit dem typisch SCHRATigen Flair: melodiös, old school, symphonisch, eiskalt! Schon auf "Schattenwahn" (2011) waren erste Grundzüge des heutigen Songwritings erkennbar, die über die Jahre und die vorangehende EP "Artefakt" (2015) gereift sind und sich schlussendlich auf "Alptraumgänger" auf einem neuem Level präsentieren. Passend dazu verstärken die Texte die Wirkung der Kompositionen - Oden an den Schrat als personifizierte Rache und Vernichtung sowie Entfesselung des Unterbewussten manifestieren sich mit den musikalischen Eruptionen zu einer beklemmend intensiven Atmosphäre.
Der zweite Teil auf "Alptraumgänger" ist geprägt durch Live-Aufnahmen ausgewählter Songs, die den Hörer unter diesem Gesichtspunkt in den Bann ziehen werden. Das Konzept von SCHRAT umfasst neben den Studioaufnahmen in einer essentiellen Weise auch die livehaftige Darbietung der geschaffen Klangbilder. In Kombination mit dem traditionellem Sound sind sie sowohl eine Reminiszenz an vergangene Rituale als auch ein Ausblick auf Kommende.
"Alptraumgänger" stellt zudem das Label-Debüt auf Folter Records dar – eine Plattenfirma, die SCHRAT seit längerem als geeigneter Heimathafen und Partner für ihr Schaffen vorschwebte. Mit dieser Veröffentlichung wird die Partnerschaft nun Realität.

SLAUGHTERDAY und PHANTOM CORPORATION veröffentlichen das Coverartwork und die Tracklist ihrer Split 7inch „SEVERED FUNERAL/BELLIGERENT POWERS“. Bei dieser 7inch trifft Crust auf Death Metal, und das auf eine absolut eigenständige Art und Weise. Deutschlands Death Metal Kommando Slaughterday tut sich hier mit dem Crust 5er Phantom Corporation zusammen - das Ergebnis ist eine starke Mischung extremer Musik. Die beiden PC Tracks sind nicht mehr und nicht weniger als "In-Your-Face" Riff-Attacken, Crust mit einer ordentlichen Portion Death und Thrash Metal- keine Überraschung mit Musikern von u.a. Dew- Scented und Weak Aside an Bord. Slaughterday steuern einen gleichermaßen brutalen wie atmosphärischen Song bei, der jetzt schon das Zeug zum Klassiker hat. Wieder einmal beweist die Band, dass sie definitiv zu den besten Acts der sogenannten " New Wave of German Death Metal" gehört. Veröffentlicht wird die handnummerierte Scheibe am 18.05.2018 über Bastardized Recordings und ist in drei Vinylfarben erhältlich: transparent (ltd. 58), grün (ltd. 112) und schwarz (ltd. 209). Pre-order starts soon!

Wie ein Gewittersturm, heraufbeschworen von einem wütendem aztekischem Kriegsgott, donnert das zweite Album „NINE LEVELS“ von CHABTAN heran.
Im neusten Werk der französischen Maya-Metal Kombi treffen krachige Gitarren und reichlich Doublebass auf Panflöten und mesoamerikanische Percusions. 
Diese grollende Mischung aus musikalischen Einflüssen verbindet sich zu einem unerwartet treibenden Soundteppich. CHABTAN erweitern mit diesem feurigem Soundgemisch das Metal-Genre um eine neue aufregende Facette. Dabei entfesseln CHABTAN eine wahre Urgewalt, ganz so als wären Bands wie DARK TRANQUILLITY, AMON AMARTH, IN FLAMES, MESHUGGAH und SCAR SYMMETRY von einem finsteren Urwald verschluckt worden und als würden diese von nun an aus dessen Tiefen auf ihre Instrumente einhämmern.
Seit 2011 zelebrieren die Metalheads aus Paris ihren Sound und waren bereits mit Schwergewichten wie NILE und SUFFOCATION auf Tour. Auf „Nine Levels“ zelebrieren CHABTAN über Elf Tracks ihren krachenden und kompromisslosen Sound. Tracks wie "The Fall of Nojpetén“, "Never Ending Pain" und "Escaping One-Death“ sind donnernde Hymnen zur Ehre der Mayagötter des Metal.
Das neue Album erscheint als vier-seitiges Digipack mit einem acht-seitigen Booklet, voll mit großartigen und eindrucksvollen Artworks, die die finstere Welt von CHABTAN visualisieren. Lass dich mit „Nine Levels“ in eine dröhnende Welt dunkler Götter und Mythen entführen!

FRAGMENTS OF UNBECOMING – “PERDITION PORTAL”
Nach fast sechs Jahren melden sich Fragments of Unbecoming mit ihrer fünften Langrille zurück. Aber die relativ lange Pause ist dem Material nicht zum Nachteil gereicht. Nahtlos knüpfen die Fünf mit ihrem ureigenen „Crimson Melodic Death Metal Art"  da an, wo sie  2012 mit  der letzten Scheibe aufgehört haben. Fans der Jungs wissen was das heisst: Feinster melodischer Death Metal schwedischer Prägung.
A new work that opens the gates wide to allow a look into the deepest abysses past all the shadows. Fragments of Unbecoming took six years to write and record what will be the next chapter within their career: “Perdition Portal – Chapter VI”. And it once again delivers the band’s “Crimson Melodic Death Metal Art” which is enriched by some new nuances.
The album which was mixed and mastered by Kristian Kohlmannslehner (Aborted, Benighted o.a.) features a monolithic artwork which will attract the listeners attention right away.
On May 18th, 2018 “Perdition Portal – Chapter VI” will be released through Apostasy Records.
COR SCORPII RELEASE SINGLE FROM UPCOMING ALBUM :  With "Ruin" their long-awaited sophomore full-length album set for release on Dark Essence Records on the 15th June, Norwegian Extreme Melodic Metallers COR SCORPII have released a single from the album.  Titled "FOTEFAR" the single is available in digital format from the usual music services by clicking on the following: https://DarkEssenceRecords.lnk.to/Fotefar
 "Ruin" is the result of a song writing process which was both lengthy and, at times, quite  arduous for the band.  Drawing its inspiration from classical music, folk melodies and the soundscapes of Nordic extreme metal,  "Ruin" is a chance for COR SCORPII's members to reveal their  hidden talents by making use of instruments not usually used by metal bands, such as the accordion and mandolin. 
A follow up to COR SCORPII's critically acclaimed debut album "Monument", which was released eight years ago, also on Dark Essence Records, "Ruin" is an album that successfully blends epic, soaring melodies, with the harshness of extreme metal.  It features guest appearances by the classical singer Annika Beinnes, as well as Mats Lerberg (I SWEAR DAMNATION, ex-FUNERAL) who lend their considerable vocal talents to three tracks each.  
"Ruin was recorded at various locations over a period of three years and was mixed by Børge Finstad in his Toproom Studio, and mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll at his Kvalsonic Lab.  With artwork by Novans V. Adikresna of the Marnov Studio, tracklisting on "Ruin" is as follows:
1. Svart Blod (Hovmod star for fall)
2. Hjarteorm
3. Skuggevandrar
4. Fotefar
5. Helveteskap
6. Ri di Mare
7. Ærelaus
8. Siste Dans
Founded in 2004 as an offshoot of the legendary WINDIR, COR SCORPII's lineup of Gaute Refsnes on keyboards, Inge Jonny Lomheim on  bass guitars, accordion and programming, Ole M. Nordsve on drums, Rune Sjøthun on  rhythm guitars, mandolin and programming, and Thomas S. Øvstedal  on vocals,  recently welcomed a new arrival into its ranks in the shape of Erlend Nybø  on lead guitars.  
"Ruin" will be released in CD, Double LP and Digital formats and is now available to pre-order from:

New Noise Magazine premiered a ballsy, swinging and immensely heavy track HERE. Sadistik Forest, which boast of having an ex-member of Hooded Menace in their ranks, are on the verge of releasing their magnum opus titled 'Morbid Majesties' which encapsulates all that is good about death metal by mixing things up like few others. Stream a bunch of their songs on Bandcamp.
SADISTIK FOREST (FINLAND) - 'MORBID MAJESTIES'
Autographed Metallic Green-embossed Box Set / CD / Merch / Digital (May 25, 2018)
Genre - Death Metal
Release Date - May 25th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - Funebre, Grave, Bolt Thrower, Demilich,  (early) Amorphis, (early) Cadaver, Xysma, Cannibal Corpse
Finnish death metal is known for its quality, and Sadistik Forest are another band to testify to that fact. They're gnarlier than their contemporaries and play a mix of death metal that not only pays homage to the genre's greats but also fuses the sound in a way that's refreshing and also powerful. Guttural vocals by ex-Hooded Menace member soar over the music that borrows elements from doom as well as black metal and yet remains distinctly death metal in its sonic output. Pulsating and heaving like an anguished monster, Sadistik Forest's music rampages over the course of 35 minutes, leaving you beaten down, sore, and asking for more.
Band lineup
Markus Makkonen - Vocals, Bass (ex-Hooded Menace) 
Antti Heikkinen - Guitar 
Matti Salo - Guitars 
Vesa Mutka - Drums 
Artwork by Raul Fuentes
Guest vocals on Destructive Art by Cris Pervertor (Satanika)

Atlanta (GA) - Boris Records has made its forthcoming  vinyl reissue of SEALED SHUT from influential Atlanta Death Dealers HAUNTING available for streaming on Bandcamp. The album is now available for pre-order as well. It is recommended that you dive right in at the following borisrecords.bandcamp.com/album/sealed-shut-pre-order
Sealed Shut will be released on May 8. Originally self-released by the band in a small run of cassettes in 2014, the vinyl version includes an added "Intro" track that never made it onto the original tape release. While HAUNTING is now disbanded, Scott Taysom has moved on to front CLOAK and Charlie Southern is kicking ass in SADISTIC RITUAL, VIMUR and ECTOVOID, while Blake and David are active in new projects.
HAUNTING appeared during an exciting period of maturation in the Atlanta metal scene. The band's brief existence afforded only the sole offering of Sealed Shut. Though only four songs, it stands in the forefront among a small group of other highly-esteemed records that have been released within the last 35 years or so of Atlanta's metal timeline.  
HAUNTING's very existence owes much to the once monstrously thriving warehouse and DIY scene in the city. HAUNTING is undeniably tied to its members' earliest musical endeavors in other local favorites such as the now legendary death-dealers Living Decay, hardcore punks Paradox, and the still-active thrashers Sadistic Ritual. Sealed Shut is easily recognizable as an amalgamation, intentional or not, of that fevered adolescent energy and relentless drive with which those earlier bands had enthralled, what was at the time, a fatigued local scene. They helped cultivate new young devotees in droves and reenergized a previous generation of weary metalheads.  
A promo video for album track "Beyond Death" is available at  youtu.be/16LEaGJlryk
Haunting is:
David Prae - Drums
Scott Taysom - Vocals, Guitar
Charlie Southern - Guitar

Polish doom-death veterans MORDOR unveil their long-awaited comeback album “DARKNESS...”. Their first album in 21 years will be released tomorrow on 20 April 2018 through Pagan Records.
Listen to the album exclusively via PureGrainAudio.com:  http://puregrainaudio.com/audio/after-21-years-mordor-returns-with-absolute-darkness-exclusive-premiere
Mordor are one of theprecursors of Polish doom metal. Established in 1990 in Częstochowa, they have quickly become one of the most respected Polish doom-death bands. This was confirmed with the favourable response to their “Nothing” (1992) demo and the debut album “Prayer to…” (1993), both receiving positive reviews from around the world.
The comeback album, “Darkness…”, was recorded at No Solace Studio with production duties taken care of by M. of Mgła fame. Consisting of six tracks, it is a return to the band’s roots, naturally continuing from the band’s days in the early 90s when Mordor where one of the first representatives of Polish doom-death metal. Listeners should expect heavy riffs, strong, deep vocals and a massive sound. In short, it is a return to the old atmosphere with a much stronger sound.

SOL DE SANGRE's self-titled album was released March 23 on Black Market Metal Label. blackmarketmetallabel.bigcartel.com/product/sol-de-sangre-sol-de-sangre
Stream the album in its entirety at  soldesangre.bandcamp.com/album/sol-de-sangre
SOL DE SANGRE emerges as a promising new death metal act with its self-titled debut album recorded in Spanish, the band's native language. Though Colombian-born, the band members are located in Australia, Canada, and the U.S.
The album features the classic death metal sound while presenting the band's own spin with the vocal aggression of thrash and hardcore to grab everyone by the throat and spit on their faces. The album was mixed by Tomas Skogsberg (Entombed, Dismember, Grave) at Sunlight Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, and mastered by Toxic Holocaust's Joel Grind (Power Trip, Cavalera Conspiracy). Featuring members/ex-members of well-known Colombian acts like HeadCrusher, Absolution Denied and Cromlech, SOL DE SANGRE succeeds in keeping the classic Death Metal sound alive.

Decibel Magazine has premiered the title track from forthcoming MORGENGRAU album BLOOD ORACLE. Head on over to the following link and get crushed into dust:  www.decibelmagazine.com/2018/04/16/track-premiere-morgengrau-blood-oracle/
Out of fire-blasted Texas comes MORGENGRAU, returning with sophomore album 
Blood Oracle, which will be released June 22 on Unspeakable Axe Records. Pre-orders are available now at  this location.
A promo video for the song "Wolves of Thirteen" is available at  youtu.be/TvsmUbotI_o
The band's German name belies its American origins, just as much as its combination of Euro-death riffs and rhythms with the Floridian originators of the genre will keep listeners guessing.  With a vicious approach reminiscent of ASPHYX, PESTILENCE, DEICIDE and CELTIC FROST, Blood Oracle is eight tracks deep with the kind of death metal that the genre's most loyal fans will devour. It was produced by the great Harris Johns (Celtic Frost, Kreator, Pestilence, Voivod, and too many more to list), ensuring that its sound is honed to a fine edge.
Featuring atmospheric artwork by Nick Keller (who has done concept paintings for numerous movies including The Lord of the Rings and Mad Max: Fury Road, in addition to his stellar cover art for many bands), this album aims to surpass in every way MORGENGRAU's self-released debut. Blood Oracle will be available on CD and digital platforms.  NOTE: No band photo available. Any photo you find on the Internet will be inaccurate.
Track List:
1. Blood Oracle
2. Wolves of Thirteen
3. Progression
4. Poised at the Precipice of Doom
5. Forced Exodus
6. Invert the Marker
7. Incipit Bellum
8. Evocation of the Wheel

OPPROBRIUM (AKA_INCUBUS) – “ SUPERNATURAL DEATH”
Death Metallers OPPROBRIUM announce their new reissue album, SUPERNATURAL DEATH  , for August 31th , release through BRUTAL RECORDS.
Supernatural Death sounds illustrious in its original form, nicely thrown together digipak that has 14 lyrics, with a terrific crushing Re-Mastered by Brad Boatright Mastering Engineer, a self-described "musician's engineer", has mastered many notable albums, including the reissue of Sleep's monumental "Dopesmoker" LP, as well as records from Corrosion of Conformity, Nails, Beastmilk, Obituary, Yob, and more
It's time for a real classic! Yet some of you might have never heard the name OPPROBRIUM before. But I'm sure the name INCUBUS rings a bell, because that's the moniker this band used to have before and under which the band became known. The band was founded in 1986 in New Orleans, Louisiana by the brothers Francis (vocals and guitar) and Moyses Howard (drums) with Scot Latour (bass and vocals).
OPPROBRIUM really did it again, with "Supernatural Death", with 14 remastered songs + 2 bonus songs "Cursed of the Danned City and Fear of the Unknown" which will leave you breathless from the first track "Battle of the Armageddon" 'til the last track "Death", the band really out done themselves with their new material for the album, as they proudly states being one of their "Best work to date" , meaning that every single song of the album must be played live if possible on stage. The new album shows OPPROBRIUM going to uncharted territories in their song writing, taking a lose approach to their music with no rules or boundaries, trying everything from melodies to hammer blast beats, with more complex song arrangements by drummer Moyses and front man Francis, a much heavier album by the band, even surpassing their classical debut "Serpent Temptations" . 
"Supernatural Death", another great Death/Thrash metal onslaught by OPPROBRIUM, will sure please old and newer fans of the band, the album is gaining great reviews from by the media and the fans response is being fantastic. "Supernatural Death" touches on very emotional subjects such as orphans to the mental trauma that each of us human beings face daily.

02. Voices From The Grave
03. Blaspheming Prophets
04. Underground Killer
05. Serpent Temptation
