Der Nordic Dark Folk-Künstler SOWULO veröffentlicht seine vierte Single + Lyricvideo „Eaxlgestealla“ vom kommenden Album „WURDIZ“, das am 09. September vis By Norse Music erscheinen wird.
Hier ist das Video: https://youtu.be/9oLDWAJClak  oder als Stream/Download: https://orcd.co/eaxlgestealla
6.8 2022News SOWULOFaber Horbach kommentiert:
„Bekämpfe dein Schicksal nicht, denn wenn du dich gegen das wehrst, das bereits da ist, wirst du dein ganzes Leben lang leiden. Beobachte, wie dein Geist versucht, dich hereinzulegen, indem er dich glauben lässt, du hättest eine Wahl, auch gegen dein Schicksal zu leben. Aber ganz tief in dir drin weißt du, dass dem nicht so ist. Dieses ‚Wissen‘, die innere Stimme, kann wie eine Erkenntnis wahrgenommen werden. Lass sie dich führen, lass das Schicksal gewähren.“
Über das Album:
„Wurdiz“ ist das indogermanische Wort für Schicksal, es geht um den Tanz zwischen dem Schicksal und dem freien Willen, und mit diesen Liedern verbindet SOWULOs Gründer und Multiinstrumentalist Faber Horbach das Schmieden seines eigenen Schicksals. Es geht auf dem Album um die Reise des eigenen Selbst durch die Landschaft des Lebens. Die Kombination aus historischen wie modernen Instrumenten sowie die moderne Produktion unterstreichen dies und machen „Wurdiz“ zu einem cineastischen Sound. Ergänzt wird das Ganze durch Spoken Words und tiefe, kräftige Vocals, die eine tiefe emotionale Ebene berühren. Bombastische Perkussion und Saitenarrangements runden das Gesamtkonzept ab.
Faber Horbach über „Wurdiz“:
„Das Leben bzw. unsere Realität kann als eine Art Verpflechtung unterschiedlichster Fäden gesehen werden, die alle miteinander verbunden sind. Nur dadurch, dass alle Fäden da sind, können sie einander halten und verbinden. So einen Zopf langsam aufzuflechten, ist eine Metapher dafür, sein Schicksal näher zu beleuchten. Bist du dir dessen bewusst, welcher Faden du gerade bist? Bist du imstande, deine Realität und dein Schicksal miteinander zu verknüpfen? Sei eigenes Schicksal zu erkennen, ist der erste Schritt die in Richtung, sein Schicksal bewusst zu umarmen, um der zu werden, der man wirklich bestimmt ist zu sein.“
Das Album wird in verschiedenen Ausführungen am 09.09. via By Norse erscheinen. Vorbestellen geht hier: https://bynorsestore.com/  oder digital  https://orcd.co/wurdiz


PANYCHIDA – “ŘÍRUŘEC – DREISESSEL”

6.8 2022News PANYCHIDAGenre:  Pagan Black Metal
Label: Folter Records
Vertrieb: Alive
VÖ: 26.08.2022
PANYCHIDA melden sich eineinhalb Jahre nach ihrem letzten Album „Gabreta Aeterna“ mit einer EP zurück – oder besser: Sie legen noch eine EP nach. Denn die neue EP „Říruřec – Dreisessel“ beinhaltet drei bislang unveröffentlichte Songs aus den Aufnahmesessions des letzten Albums. Thematisch nehmen diese Bezug auf das Gebirge sowie eine Felsformation, die aussieht wie ein Stuhl – dieser befindet sich zwischen der tschechischen, deutschen und österreichischen Grenze. Neben diesen drei Songs, die klar den Stil von „Gabreta Aeterna“ fortführen, gibt es noch zwei Tracks, die als Bonus verstanden werden können. Zum einen wäre hier „The Curse of the Christlhof“, das eine neue Version benötigte und diese jetzt bekommen hat. Zum anderen huldigen PANYCHIDA den mächtigen IMPALED NAZARENE mit ihrer ganz eigenen Interpretation von „Via Dolores“.
PANYCHIDA haben sich 2004 in Pilsen, Tschechische Republik, als Slavic-Pagan-Metal-Band gegründet, über die Jahre aber einen spannenden Mix aus Black Metal und traditionellem Heavy Metal entwickelt, selbstverständlich immer noch um ein paganes Element bereichert. Ihren Einfluss beziehen sie dabei aus der slawischen Mythologie und Philosophie sowie auf den neueren Werken aus der atemberaubenden Darstellung alter Traditionen, die mit der Bergregion des Böhmerwaldes verbunden sind. Neben ihren Alben waren PANYCHIDA auch häufig live zu sehen, neben Europa spielten sie unter anderem in Mexiko und Brasilien, wo die Band eine treue Fanbase besitzt.

1. Bouře les ničící

Italian Death Thrashers MISCREANCE will release their debut full-length album CONVERGENCE September 19 on Unspeakable Axe Records (CD), Danex Records (Vinyl), and Desert Wastelands (Cassette), as well as on Bandcamp and other digital platforms.

The album's first single, "INCUBO," is streaming now at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDIUjKsVYC0
One of the few relatively unmined veins of extreme metal, technical death/thrash--the style pioneered by the likes of Atheist and Sadus--is a demanding art, for both the band and the listener. Fortunately for both, Italian death/thrashers Miscreance have very sure hands. On their debut full-length, Convergence, a dizzying array of influences and ideas come together to make a feast for fans of the genre. Riffs twist and contort, lead parts spiral off like celestial bodies in orbit, and even the overall song structures are intricate beasts. Everything Miscreance touches is a twist or three off from the predictable and repetitive approach of much latter-day thrash and death.
Convergence, in short, is the kind of album that purists will salivate over: in love with and mindful of the halcyon days of the genre, but insistent on surprising the listener rather than just delivering the basics again. Unspeakable Axe Records, Danex Records, and Desert Wastelands Productions are very pleased to conspire to bring you this release in three different formats, in advance of a European tour in 2023 with like-minded labelmates Ripper (Chile).

Canada’s GREBER are the no-holds-barred, to-the-point hardcore grind band that you have been waiting for, and for those uninitiated, they are a ferocious duo that keeps it on the low end, saturated with gritty vocals and a no-bullshit attitude.

Steve Vargas (drums/vocals) (The Great Sabatini, BIIPIIGWAN) and Marc Bourgon (bass, vocals) (ex-F*ck The Facts, Cancelled) have put out several albums, both full lengths and splits with an admirable array of bands. Their newest contribution is “FRIGHT WITHOUT”, ten succinct tracks that may surprise longtime fans of the band. They cite, in relation to their evolution, that since 2006 it’s been an involved process and that having just one melodic instrument it’s sometimes as limiting as it is freeing. Right when Bourgon feels like he’s run out of ideas, another one emerges and Greber keeps puttering along. He explains the third single off “Fright Without” - “Fabricated Purpose”:
“Honestly, this is our best attempt at Masakari worship. The beginning hits the mark but invariably comes off the rails towards the end. The end needed something special and we’ve always been huge fans of all that is Kevin Keegan. He was kind enough to lend his golden voice to the track and we couldn’t possibly be more chuffed. When I sent Kurt the song he asked if it was Danko Jones on that part. I told him it wasn’t but was stoked that he knew who Danko was. The outro has some atmospheric drones courtesy of Sean Pearson.”
When asked how they will expect fans to take the new album, with its slightly divergent sound compared to their previous work, they explain that they have no idea, it’s the same but different. They muse that perhaps they are “over the hill and should pack it in, maybe this is the best shit we've ever written, maybe hard trance has always been the best fit for us”. It’s up to listeners to decide now, and those with an interest in Black Sheep Wall, Primitive Man, and Cult Leader should take note.
“Fabricated Purpose” can be heard via its premiere on IDIOTEQ https://idioteq.com/greber-members-ex-fck-the-facts-the-great-sabatini-biipiigwan-offer-a-whirlwind-of-hardcore-and-grind-on-fabricated-purpose/
“Fright Without” is slated for September 9, 2022, and will be available from the following labels: Ancient Temple and Nofuneral for Vinyl, CD, and Cassette in Canada, Hibernation Release for Vinyl in the USA, and 7 Degrees and Fresh Outbreak for Vinyl in Europe.

AND NOW THE OWLS ARE SMILING – “EPITAPH”
6.8 2022News And Now The Owls Are SmilingLabel: Clobber Records
Release Date: September 2nd 2022
Genre:
 Atmospheric Black Metal
For fans of: Grift | A Forest Of Stars | Drudkh | Old Corpse Road
The candle flame burns low and the shadows gather in the corners of my solitary room. They thicken and seem to edge ever closer as the last remnants of wax begin to liquefy and pool upon the table. They hunger for me and I shan’t keep them waiting for much longer. I have thought all my thoughts and recalled every smile and tear. My songs have all been sung. I stare at the last flickering of the light and for a moment I am filled with fear; it floods through me like cold, bitter sea water. And then, with a sibilant hiss the candle dies...and the shadows take me.
All things pass and all dreams eventually end. The black always waits at the end of the road. With the release of their fourth album, Epitaph, And Now The Owls Are Smiling will pass into history. Nre, the artist who has conjured up the heartbreaking sounds of solitude behind ...The Owls... name for the past six years has turned a final page and found this particular story is over. While we will all grieve for the death of this truly special project, we must also celebrate the release of Epitaph, which is surely the most emotionally powerful and utterly captivating release to bear the name of And Now The Owls Are Smiling. Nre has saved his best till last with this beautifully melancholy, enthralling collection of songs. Mournful black metal for the soul shattered and the world weary, songs like ‘The Miserable Grip Of Comfort’ will carry you across seas of tears, under grey, sorrow-painted skies and lead you through lightless forests beneath ancient boughs, bent low with the agony of centuries. Epitaph is the perfect ending for And Now The Owls Are Smiling...it’s impossible to imagine how anything could really follow in the wake of an album laden with the doomed, damned sounds of ‘There Is No Laughter Here’. This is breathtaking emptiness, desolation sculpted from sound, a heart torn open to bleed the black blood of raw emotion and frightening loneliness. The last sounds of this last album come in the form of a superb cover of Radiohead’s ‘Street Spirit (Fade Out)’, which has been drawn into the chilling twilight mists of the owls and consumed.
It has been an incredible six year journey for And Now The Owls Are Smiling, one which has seen Nre climb from peak to cloud covered peak, finally emerging at the very highest point beneath the black, star dusted heavens with Epitaph. When this offering is made on September 2nd by Clobber Records, clasp it tight your heart and never let it go. The owls will not smile again

Brazil’s kings of death metal Armageddon KRISIUN are releasing their new studio album “MORTEM SOLIS”!

To give you yet another foretaste of the new album, a lyric video for the track “War Blood Hammer” (Created by Cloud Music Typography) can be seen here
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAUAJ03tWBk

KRISIUN guitarist Moyses Kolesne checked in with the following comment about “War Blood Hammer”: “’War Blood Hammer’ follows the same path of the other 3 singles we've released for ‘Mortem Solis’, maybe a bit more tech oriented but we tried to sound as brutal, aggressive and natural we can but avoiding all the artificial tools like grid editing, emulators, plugins, metronomes. All was recorded to give people the real Death Metal vibe of early 90s’. It’s not perfect but heavy!!! Death Metal nowadays sounds too melodic for me, too artificial. Bands are technical but not brutal or aggressive! We want to bring the real death metal vibe back but with the modern approach and have Krisiun identify there!!!”

Hailing from Ottawa, Canada, DEFORMATORY unrelentingly summons their creative darkness to deliver another slab of ferocious Canadian death metal in the upcoming new EP “HARBINGER”. The powerhouse duo of guitarist/vocalist Charlie Leduc and drummer Neil Grandy refuse to acquiesce to the weakness of modern metal, they reach deep into the abyss of infernal intensity to deliver a new offering of blistering madness.

Listeners can get a sneak peek of what’s in store this fall, as the band has released a teaser on YouTube at https://youtu.be/jlb68arCmjI
This pummeling four-track EP, as devastating as it is succinct, follows their destructive 2013 debut “In The Wake of Pestilence”, the crushing 2016 follow-up “Malediction” and the vortex of insanity that is 2021’s masterpiece “Inversion of the Unseen Horizon”. According to the band, the lyrical inspiration was derived from an internal, vitriolic response to current world affairs and an innate compulsion to destroy. The writing style for these lyrics is more poetic and concealed in allegory to maintain their dark & destructive aesthetic. The band shares their thoughts on the album and what’s in store for fans, new and old alike:
“It’s a violently heavy and jam-packed album that has a little bit of every aggressive genre wrapped in brutal death metal packaging. We know that fans of all extreme metal spectrums will find at least one thing in it to enjoy.”
Paying the utmost attention to all the details, the artwork and concept of the album were just as important as the music and songwriting. Every audio and visual release that is connected to this recording helps the listener dive deeper into the totality of their creation.
A sonically relentless death metal experience, Deformatory is recommended for fans of Hate Eternal, Angelcorpse, and Vitriol.
This is unequivocal vitriolic rage. This is uncompromising animosity.
This is not trendy. This is not a safe place.
This is a maelstrom of maniacal death metal.
This is DEFORMATORY.
You have been warned.
Heed the Harbinger’s call.

"The album is magnificent. And a compelling advance beyond what Liminal Shroud had achieved before."

"This is an excellent record, one with the ability to garner them a larger following and their name on more tongues as people discuss what newer bands are making metal exciting again."- Mead Mead Metal

"A must for every true black metal fan." (94/100)- Musika
"A truly fantastic work of art." (9/10)- Metal-Only
"Atmospheric black metal with a combination of immersive atmosphere, melodic weight, and blistering aggression."- Wonderbox Metal
"A blisteringly depressive album by LIMINAL SHROUD. The material here is so disheartening and black, it could consume your very soul."- Metal Temple
"Four tracks of dense, dynamic, and sprawling black metal."- Heavy Blog is Heavy
"If you want evolving, brutal, ever changing, explorative and extreme expression with beautiful whimsy pieced in here and there, then Liminal Shroud is ready to give that to you."- Blessed Altar Zine
"LIMINAL SHROUD have created a really strong album."- Lack of Lies
LIMINAL SHROUD prepared the following statement concerning the album:
"Our second album, All Virtues Ablaze, takes the vision set forth on our debut and executes with greater intensity, song craft and performance. Written and recorded between 2019 and 2021, this album represents and captures a process of rejection, annihilation and regeneration of the self and contemplates the cyclical forces of futility that shape our condition.
Musically, All Virtues Ablaze is a major development on our previous album, taking the emotive atmospherics, searing melodicism and bitter fury found on Through the False Narrows to new heights. We are very proud of the compositional strength and impact of these four songs.  
Lyrically, we delve deeper into the themes of hopelessness and despair, resolve and transformation present on our previous release, sharpened in the perception of emptiness yet with an eye to the vast reaches and sources of solace to be found above, below and around us. Again, the unyielding tides and otherworldly expanses of the coast provide much inspiration.  
This release is our next statement and beginning.
We find our virtue in the blaze."

6.8 2022News CONSECRATION With their new album CINIS drawing plaudits from all who hear it's monolithic death/doom darkness, CONSECRATION guitar team Liam Houseago and Andy Matthews have put together a guitar playthrough video for one of the album's heaviest tracks - 'Ground To Ashes (A Cremulation)'.

NOMAD SNAKEPIT PRODUCTIONS
proudly presents:
More than twenty years after the original release, two Black Metal masterpieces have now finally been made available again! Two defining albums that set the tone for the Swedish scene around the millennium switch, deeply hooked into the old and steady pillars of true Black Metal.
Recorded already in 1997, “Bloodline” should have been released as Svartsyn’s 2nd album, but due to several problems it was only released years later, together with “…His Majesty” as 2LP.
Now for the first time ever, Nomad Snakepit Productions has the honour to release both albums separately on vinyl and for the first time on cassette-tape format as well! Two different colour versions for each release!
To make it even better, both albums feature exclusive unreleased bonus tracks: “…His Majesty” includes the first recording of the “Tormentor” EP, which was supposed to contain 3 tracks at first, one ending up never to be released ( “Circle of the Pentagram”) and “Bloodline” features two never before released Svartsyn tracks (“Vampyrisk Sömn” and “Tronets Slav”) taken from the first “Bloodline” recording that ended up being discarded, plus the album’s lyrics that had been lost and were therefore never before presented either!
After the release of the magnificent opus “Black Vitriol & Iron Fire”, it is now time to dive back into the fervescent abyss and contemplate the previous works of THANATOMASS! 
We hereby present you the band’s first two works on LP, featuring exclusive bonus tracks.
For those still unfamiliar with THANATOMASS, this is sheer Black Metal violence, in the vein of Katharsis and Vorum. It smells of Death, it soars like Black and it crawls into your flesh like rot!
This is pure Metal of Hades!!

Swiss thrashers Algebra will release CHIROPTERA, their fourth full-length album, September 19 on CD and digital formats via Unspeakable Axe Records.

The album's first single, "Kleptomaniac," is streaming at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGA7IJcNxGQ
Algebra have become one of the most reliable machines in metaldom over the course of their 14 years of existence. Like the famous Swiss watches, their music is clockwork-precise. Several overlapping schools of classic thrash coexist in their songs, with the heaviness and directness of the classic Bay Area bands somehow not crowding out the weirder, progressive flourishes of countrymates Coroner or even modern, post-1992 extreme metal influences, a la latter-day Megadeth, perhaps. It all comes together into a pummeling, yet controlled, behemoth of a band without visible seams on its stainless steel outer shell.
Their release schedule has been almost as reliable as their riffwork, with prior full-length albums Polymorph in 2012, Feed the Ego in 2014, and Pulse? in 2019. The latter two were their first outings for Unspeakable Axe Records, who is now proud to unleash their fourth album. Titled CHIROPTERA--with a suitably spooky bat painted on its cover, courtesy of the talented Adam Burke--this may be Algebra's most advanced offering yet, without departing too greatly from the style they have been refining up til now.
Track Listing:
1. The Fallen
2. Resuscitation
3. Kleptomaniac
4. Constricted

DRAGONHAMMER'S
banner will soon return to hoist itself into the epic skies of the European Power Metal scene.
6.8 2022News DRAGONHAMMER The historic Power Metal band, returning from the two highly acclaimed albums "The X Experiment" and "Obscurity", as well as numerous dates that have seen them on the most important European stages, has renewed the partnership that linked them to My Kingdom Music and together, on November 4th, they will present the new album titled "Second Life", a work that without any doubt is more powerful, more epic and technically as sublime as its predecessors were.
The album will also be the opportunity to present the new singer Mattia Fagiolo who, after the separation from the historic frontman Max Aguzzi, then replaced for a few years for the live sessions by Luca Micioni, is ready to bring with his energy new vital life to the essence of DRAGONHAMMER, as well as Alessandro Mancini on guitars and Marco Berrettoni on drums already present in the last live shows. The line-up is completed by the historic bassist and founder of the band, Gae Amodio, Giulio Cattivera on keyboards and Flavio Cicconi on guitar.
This is a comment by Giulio Cattivera on behalf of the band who explains what is behind "Second Life" and what is expected for the near future: "Second Life" opens a new chapter for the band. It is the story of the evolution of DragonhammeR's way of working and making music, renewed in sound and formation. Among the novelties of this work, the addition of new vocal elements, more symphonic keyboards and more modern and powerful guitars stand out. An album that opens up new visions for the future and wants to be the starting point of this new identity".

Excerpt - "The album is full to the gills with diabolical riffs and grooves the likes of which are not easily forgotten, and quite likely to be considered the band’s best work to date." 
ABADDON INCARNATE – “THE WRETCHED SERMON”
6.8 2022News Abadon IncarnatedGenre - Death Metal / Grindcore
Release Date - August 5th, 2022
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Napalm Death, Rotten Sound, Misery Index, Wormrot, Phobia, Nasum, Balance of Terror
Having been active since the '90s, Irish grindcore/death metal legends have only perfected their sound over the years, creating a quintessential blend of both the styles. They've come a long way from their explosive, highly caustic album 'Nadir' that put them on the map and have since then imbibed more death metal influences to improve upon their expression, adding better structure and nuance to their music. On their latest full length, their sixth, they've expanded upon their sound like never before, injecting myriad elements from thrash riffing to atmospheric passages and stringing them together using staggering transitions, and turning it into a fascinating beast of an album. Every song here offers something different, some even climaxing into a terrific breakdown or shapeshifting into something mind-blowing. The Wretched Sermon is easily their most diverse and expressive album yet, meticulously written to flesh out every nuance, while keeping things brisk and intense. Abaddon Incarnate are in top form here, crafting a potent and relevant album that's bound to go down as one of the best ones in this grindcore/death metal vein in recent years.

Belgian melodic dark metal band FRAGMENTUM has released a brand new track, “QUIRIGUA SUCCESSORS.” The song is a continuation of the Mayan themes explored in the band’s 2021 release, MASTERS OF COMPLEXITY.

6.8 2022News FRAGMENTUMFRAGMENTUM guitarist/vocalist Jan Bruggeman comments on the single, “’Quirigua Successors’ is a song about a Mayan clan that endured, but survived Clash Of The Clans and Feast Of The Flesh, as described in our previous album Masters Of Perplexity. The album ends with ‘Secrets Of The Stones,’ like extinguished Maya settlements do, but the Quirigua people are a strong and smart clan. Will they reveal these secrets and who knows what else the future brings for them?”
Stream “’Quirigua Successors” now on Spotify.
FRAGMENTUM is a melodic dark metal band from Lokeren, Belgium founded by Jan Bruggeman and Gunnar Nopens, accompanied on stage by Wouter Macaré (drums) and Ozzy Voskuilen (bass). The band has been described as a hybrid of Depeche Mode and In Flames, featuring melodies, synths, and ambient sounds combined with heavy riffs and crushing grooves.
In 2019, FRAGMENTUM released its first full-length album, Pugnacity, which showcased a more straightforward approach than earlier material. The album’s lyrics were focused on personal turmoil and inner struggle.
A concept album, titled Masters Of Perplexity was released in 2021. This album explored Mayan history and philosophy, each song a chapter in an elaborate and epic story. After the album’s release, FRAGMENTUM embarked on a short tour across Eastern Europe.
You can experience the band’s most recent creation, a single titled “Quirigua Successors” this summer. The song is a precursor of their next full-length album, coming later this year. 
FRAGMENTUM has shared the stage with some of metal’s biggest names, including Children of Bodom, Swallow the Sun, Wolfheart, Soulfly, and Annihilator.
FRAGMENTUM is:
Jan Bruggeman - Vocals & Guitar
Gunnar Nopens - Vocals & Guitar
Ozzy Voskuilen – Bass (live)
Wouter Macaré – Drums (live)

SILENT KNIGHT: Australisches Metal-Powerhouse kündigt neues Album “FULL FORCE” an . Das australische Metal-Powerhouse Silent Knight hat seinen dritten Langspieler ”Full Force” angekündigt, der am Freitag, 23. September 2022, veröffentlicht wird.
“Full Force” fokussiert Silent Knights unverkennbare Fusion der Melodik des europäischen Power Metal mit der messerscharfen Aggressivität des amerikanischen Thrash Metal auf der vollen Länge dieses beeindruckenden Werks. Mit unbändigen Riffs, so rasanten wie fließenden Soli, hymnenhaften Melodien und energetischem Rhythmus erleben Hörer*innen auf authentische und beeindruckende Weise die volle musikalische Evolution der Band. Diese hochoktanige Mischung wird gekrönt durch Dan Brittains kraftvolle Vocals, die in schierer Unfehlbarkeit die Heaviness mit beeindruckendem Klangumfang und feinfühliger Dynamik durchdringen.
30.7.2022News Silent Knight“Nach einer gefühlten Ewigkeit sind wir zurück mit unserem dritten Album, ‘Full Force’!”, erklärt Gitarrist Stu McGill und richtet ein paar Worte direkt an die Fans: “Dieses Album hat alles, was wir mit Silent Knight erreichen wollen, es ist eine perfekte Mischung aus Melodie und Aggressivität. Uns war wichtig, all eure Lieblingselemente wie Mitsingrefrains, heftige Gitarrensoli und ein halsbrecherisches Tempo von der ersten bis zur letzten Note mitzudenken. Ach ja, und außerdem haben wir einen neuen Sänger namens Dan, dessen Powerfalsett wahrscheinlich direkt der Hölle entrissen wurde! Vielen Dank für eure Geduld, wir sind uns sicher, ihr werdet zustimmen dass es das Warten wert war. Wenn euch unsere bisherige Musik gefallen hat, wissen wir, dass ihr ‘Full Force’ absolut lieben werdet!" Nach einer Reihe hochgelobter Veröffentlichungen tourten Silent Knight national wie international bereits mit Schwergewichten wie Dragonforce, Korpiklaani, Turilli Lione Rhapsody, Helloween, David Ellefson, Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society oder Ross The Boss (Manowar) und konnten sich Festivalslots beim Hammersonic Festival und dem November Rain Festival in Indonesien sowie dem deutschen Headbangers Open Air Festival sichern. Von früh an konnte das Schaffen der Gruppe weltweit Aufmerksamkeit erregen; ihre Songs wurden von Louder Sound, Metal Storm, Spirit Of Metal, MMM, Andrew Haug Radio und unzähligen anderen Radiosendern gespielt. Mit der nun anstehenden Veröffentlichung von “Full Force” stehen Silent Knight in den Startlöchern, die Welt der Heavy Music nicht nur in Australien, sondern auch weit darüber hinaus zu erobern.

"Joyless" is the third and final single before the album finally drops next week. It's a swan song for today's society. Enjoy this disturbing clip and get your copy of "The Decline"!”
„JOYLESS“ ist natürlich ab sofort auch auf allen Streaming-Plattformen erhältlich!
 Das Debütalbum „The Decline“ erscheint am 29.07.22 über Supreme Chaos / Red Flame auf CD und limitierter Auflage Vinyl und MC Auflage.
Hier könnt ihr das Album vorbestellen:   https://link.supremechaos.de/perish/
Info:
Zu einer Zeit, in der extremer Metal anscheinend nur entweder verkopft, verkrampft rückwärtsgewandt oder im schlimmsten Fall anrüchig ideologisch aufgeladen sein kann, wirken PERISH erfrischend, denn im Mittelpunkt steht bei ihnen die Musik an sich – genaugenommen melodischer Black Death Metal, wie er Mitte der 1990er gespielt wurde.
Tatsächlich entstand das Trio aus langjährigen Freunden und Musikerkollegen in verschiedenen Projekten so ähnlich wie viele skandinavische Pioniere damals: aus Langeweile in relativer Isolation, bloß nicht in der schwedischen Provinz, sondern in Deutschland während einer Pandemie, die manchen zum Nachdenken brachte: über den gegenwärtigen Lebenswandel des Menschen, die Zukunft und unsere Wurzeln… nicht zuletzt die musikalischen.
Das Universum von PERISH ist von Aggression, Wut und einer düsteren Atmosphäre geprägt, während es gleichzeitig Fokus auf Details und Melodie legt. Obwohl die Basis an die frühen Tage des schwedischen Black Death Metal erinnert, halten sich eine gewisse Vintage-Klangästhetik und ein zeitgenössischer Sound die Waage.
PERISH sind:
RJ – Vocals, Schlagzeug, Keyboard
FF – Gitarre, Bass
GS – Gitarre, Bass

Following an international cassette release, BAT MAGIC'S - FEAST OF BLOOD is finally slated to be released on vinyl by American label and merch dealer Labyrinth Tower.

Following an antihero into the grips of vampirism and dark magicks, BAT MAGIC's 2021 debut took the latter half of black metal's tag and concentrated heavily on the genre's metallic roots. A riff-heavy affair with nods to the greats and lesser known artists alike, Feast of Blood's bloodthirsty attack is an overwhelming affair of black metal, heavy metal, and many other styles thrown into a ferocious meat grinder, garnering praise from Stereogum, Decibel Magazine, No Clean Singing, and many other forward-thinking metal publications.
This limited pressing will be available exclusively from Labyrinth Tower and Ordo Vampyr Orientis on sanguine vinyl with a screen printed B-side, with preorders opening on July 22nd at 9 AM PST/12 PM EST.
The vinyl edition will be available at:
https://ordovampyrorientis.com/
www.labyrinthtower.com
Feast of Blood was recorded in a Castle Under The Blood Moon anno MMXVI. BAT MAGIC's black metal is bloodthirsty, aggressive, and exists with mal intent towards mortal life. Members of the mysterious and ever-growing Ordo Vampyr Orientis circle, BAT MAGIC's first utterance is one of power, hate, and majesty.
Ranging from evil, riff-worshiping black metal to keyboard-led passages and lengthy, lighter-raising guitar solos, BAT MAGIC's Feast of Blood is one of the most exciting new releases in the black metal underground.

EVIL IN – “AGE OF IMMORTAL DARKNESS”

30.7.2022News Evil InLabel: Independent Release
Release Date: July 29th 2022
Genre: Death/Thrash Metal
For fans of: Possessed | Deceased | Soilent Green | Obituary
The earth lies in shadow, shattered and cold. The skies are an unceasing maelstrom of turbulent, roiling clouds, their darkness split and fragmented by jagged shards of lightning that stab down at the ground below, like a killer beyond madness inflicting wound after degrading wound upon a victim long since dead. The accompanying roars of thunder blend in dissonant harmony with rabid howls of lust and piercing screams of pain and terror; an infernal symphony that has replaced the multitudinous sounds of life.  The once fecund soil has been reduced to ash, a lifeless, unchanging landscape strewn with the carelessly discarded bones of stolen lives. This is the aftermath of demonic holocaust...
It is time to return to the nightmare world of endless death that was first revealed to us by Evil In’s debut EP, An Ethereal Force Beyond, a year ago. Welcome to Age Of Immortal Darkness – six tracks of rampaging, thunderous death/thrash metal, enfolded within eerie, unsettling intro and outro pieces that act as doorways into this world of terror. Once across the threshold the listener is flung into a twilight torn open by barbarous riffing, where drum beats fall like hammers upon mighty anvils and guitar solos constructed from broken glass and barbed wire cascade like star showers. Meanwhile a raw, unholy voice narrates tales of torment through the mists of strange, disorientating atmosphere. From the dynamic death of ‘Merciless Ancient Evil’, through the sinister assault of the ‘Demon Grave Robbers’, on to the stuttering faded glory of ‘Destination Earth’, Age Of Immortal Darkness offers a unique trip through forbidding hinterlands of death and thrash metal. In a time where so much music seems to topple off an endless conveyor belt of clones, Evil In bring their own character, personality and individual approach to their vision of metal. Even the artwork for Age Of Immortal Darkness, created by Jois Cabe (Gravestalker, Jaded Black etc) follows a different path from the herd.
While the An Ethereal Force Beyond EP was all the work of Charlie Murphy, the multi instrumentalist has now been joined by Steffen Banas of No Coffin and this alliance of talents has brought an extra dimension to the Evil In sound. Age Of Immortal Darkness possesses a depth of atmosphere and forceful strength only hinted at before. On July 29th the story of Evil In will continue to unfold – step once more into a future vision of horror and exhilarating fear...

Charlie Murphy – Vocals/Guitar

Philly extremists SUBLATION is set to unleash their full-length debut, THE PATH TO BEDLAM. This two-headed beast infuses elements of tech-death and blackened fury for 10 lethal offerings of forward-thinking extreme metal.

Death Metal Promotions has premiered the album’s newest single, “Evoked Through Obsidian.” The band comments on the concept behind the song,
“The lyrics tell the story of Edward Kelley’s growing lust for power as an advisor to Queen Elizabeth I. Kelley and his accomplice John Dee convinced Queen Elizabeth they could communicate with Angels and learn their language. Kelley then convinced Dee to perform a ritual where they’d have sex with each other's spouses. This ritual destroyed their relationship and resulted in the impregnation of Dee’s wife. ‘Evoked Through Obsidian’ is emblematic of the many themes throughout SUBLATION’s debut album, The Path to Bedlam; deceit, corruption, and the lies humanity tells itself to justify its horrific acts.”
Check out “Evoked Through Obsidian” now at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Osm_jB8JKK4&feature=youtu.be
The song is also streaming on Spotify.
The Path to Bedlam will be out on September 13. Pre-order the album at https://sublationband.bandcamp.com/album/the-path-to-bedlam

Bio:
SUBLATION is a death metal band hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Formed in 2008, under the name Fisthammer by frontman Max Svalgard, and drummer Danny Piselli. They recorded their first demo with brothers Mike and Doug Sabolick of A Life Once Lost and under their tutelage, they forged a unique style of technical blackened death metal.
In 2012, Fisthammer released their debut album Devour All You See, through HPGD productions. The response to the album was strongly positive, and led one reviewer to describe them as “set to be this generation's Decapitated”. Fisthammer went on to do 150 + shows in support of that album, all self-funded without the help of any label or outside management. In 2014, they released their follow-up album Infallible, which was once again recorded with renowned engineer Carson Slovak at Atrium audio. The follow-up album saw Fisthammer take even more influence from their black metal roots, while still having the technical and trash elements of their previous work. After the release of Infallible, Fisthammer once again did several national tours, including opening up for the legendary MASTER. 
In 2020, SUBLATION returned from its 5-year hiatus with a new name and a newly-shared vision for the band. Never being a band to follow trends, SUBLATION aims to release a brand of death metal that rejects the lyrical confines of death metal while musically and sonically embracing the raw and visceral facets of their roots.
SUBLATION is:
Max Svalgard - guitar, bass, vocals
Danny Piselli - drums

OUR DYING WORLD
 recently unleashed their new album “HYMNS OF BLINDING DARKNESS” on June 24th. The record was forged during time off during the Covid pandemic. Initially, a band that was more in the vein of thrashy death, this new record embraces the melodic side of things and presents the band's new form to the world. They explain further:
“It is an exceptional album of melody, personal experience, and the dedication of trying to push ourselves to our furthest limit. Lyrically, it speaks of many walks of life: sorrow, loss, hopelessness, but also empowerment, triumph, and solitude. There’s something for everyone to relate to in the wake of current times and cultural status. Musically, the record is attempting to stand out with its sophisticated arrangements, catchy hooks, and heavy melodies. It feels like a massive step up from where we were with Expedition and we think it’ll present itself as such.”
On July 9th, Our Dying World hosted their album release show in Santa Ana, CA and captured live shots along with behind the scenes-from the performance plus did a Q & A with band members to give fans more insight behind the band's songwriting.
Drummer Tommy Tierney explains:
"The band wanted to do something special, showcasing clips of our live release show and we decided to put together a little getting-to-know-you video introducing the guys behind the sound. We wanted to give a little history, some personal details, and talk about what's on the chopping block next for us. Hymns Of Blinding Darkness has put our hat in the metal ring and we wanted to make sure we gave ourselves the opportunity to talk about what brought the six members to this point that we're at now.
We'd like to thank Andrew Goldfarb and Jamie Kaufman for shooting, recording, and editing such a stellar video and documentary for us, Gina Vertucci and Stages in Santa Ana, House Of Metal, Vera Leigh, and all the bands that shared the night of our release show with us; Consciously Dying, Anubis, Disrupted Euphoria, Hvile I Kaos, and Mythraeum.
To all the new friends and fans we've reached over the course of the last record, thank you for the overwhelming support and friendship you've shared with us since the release! We can't wait for the next one!"

About:
Over the last few years, Los Angeles’s Our Dying World has gone through a tremendous evolution of sound from thrashy death metal of their debut EP Expedition to the symphonic and melodic keyboard-oriented stylings of bands like Children Of Bodom, Nightwish, and Dimmu Borgir.
Formed in 2018 by drummer/guitarist Tom Tierney (ex-Whiplash), the group has played shows all over the USA in their short time together, bringing their sound from the fabled Sunset Strip in Hollywood to the New Jersey Metalfest where they opened for Metal Mike of Halford.
One thing is clear from the young band as they prepare for the release of their second release; they’ve come to stir the standards that hold the metal scene and redefine them.

The ocean is a vast, unforgiving world where things can go horribly awry. This is the topic of EATEN BY SHARKS' latest single “Dead Weight” off the upcoming album “ERADICATION” - a technical death metal horror story that takes a deep dive into the gruesome possibilities that can result from daring to enter the untamed sea.
The single hits quickly, revealing some of the hells we face out on the open waters, alone out in the elements, what will you do to survive? What would you do in the fight for your life while battling infection and madness? Will you leave a trail of carnage behind you? These questions are presented alongside down-picked speed chugging, odd times, progressive movements, and a punishing ending. The band comments on the song:
“'Dead Weight' is the follow-up to the punishing groove of 'Shallow Water'. No intro, No standing around, just straight into the madness! This song is the fastest that we offer on the album, the most aggressive and progressive. Lyrically, Matt whips up another nautical disaster story, shipwrecked and alone. To what atrocities man will resort, to stay alive? His vocals are put to task, he keeps up to tempo, pulls out all the stops, and delivers yet another perfectly matched vocal performance, punctuated with a squeal that slurps up the grime from the deepest trench that the ocean has to offer.”
Eaten By Sharks was hatched out of a desire to start a punishing metal project and as soon as the moment was right, the heavy techy riffs started flowing. Adding blast beats and breakdowns to them along with a healthy appetite for horror movies, the band was formed with a campy nautical horror theme and serious musicianship.
With elements of slam, thrash and deathcore, Eaten By Sharks up the ante when it comes to technical death metal. Fans of Cattle Decapitation, Revocation, and Gojira will be especially interested in testing the waters.

HEKSEBRANN – “TRANSCENDENCE”

30.7.2022News HEKSEBRANNReleasedate :  02.09.2022 via Demons Run Amok
File under: Metal Punk / Heavy Rock
Heksebrann delivers filthy heavy rock - right from the heart of Saxony!
FFO: MOTÖRHEAD, HIGH ON FIRE, SOLSTAFIR & KVELERTAK
Inspired by the common vision of a distinctive sound, Julius, Mario, and Marko traveled to Norway in 2016 in order to form their band. By car, they made their way between sharp cliffs and wild fjords, right through the rough nature. Snowstorms and hail pushed them to their physical and mental limits along the way. What they found on their journey was something that probably every band wishes to find: song material without end. Surrounded by the unique Nordic atmosphere, they created their seminal song "The Hunt", which was released as a demo on tape in 2017. In this highly creative phase, they also laid the foundation for many more songs, which were then released in 2020 on their debut album "Spiritual Descending".
"To win, to lose, to live, to die - you choose!" (From: Spiritual Descending)
This untamed violence of the Norwegian wilderness has been a mood-setting moment in the musical development of the band and still cuts a swath through every song of the three guys from Görlitz. The basic idea of mysticism, nature, and spirituality, which was the initial spark, has been preserved as a vision and guiding principle for the band. Thus spirituality for Heksebrann is not a question of definition, but floats, as on their artwork between the spheres and is not tangible from the outside. The band's musical focusis to deliver a unique sound that gets stuck between the ears and forces every listener to headbang. Their music is distinctively influenced by heavy rock bands like Motörhead and High on Fire, but also stands out with progressive parts like those found in Kvelertak and Solstafir.
With passion and a wide musical range
The three guys have been playing in different band projects for more than 10 years. Both Julius and Marko can play several instruments and styles. The bassist Mario was actively involved for years as Rowdie and finally got the chance to realize his own musical dreams with Heksebrann. The band clearly masters the sound structure of different musical genres. The broad musical experience of the three guys is paying off: The deeper understanding of tones and moods and the skillful handling of their instruments is particularly reflected in the song structure. Rarely does a newcomer band manage such well-thought-out and intuitive songwriting right off the bat. Heksebrann is mainly convincing with catchy riffs and precise drum parts. Like a red thread, a magical touch runs through every song and strong lyrics first let a cold shiver trickle down the neck, and then a pleasant shiver follows. The voice of Julius whips the songs upwards or lets them fall into gloomy depths. With the purposefully placed second voice of Mario, the guys are always able to give new twists to songs and thus shape their own and unmistakable sound!
Vinyl comes in naturell colored vinyl with an etched b-side and a great Artwork!

Finnish band Morbid Evils have not only created some of the heaviest, intense, even suspenseful form of death/doom/sludge metal music but they're mixing it up in ways you'll never expect. At one point, the song almost sounds akin to a death/grind one, but the progressions aren't jarring or out-of-place and somehow fit the vision of the ever-evolving, crushing music. No Clean Singing premiered one such outstanding song https://www.nocleansinging.com/2022/06/16/an-ncs-premiere-morbid-evils-fearless/

Helmed by the Rotten Sound vocalist Keijo Niinimaa, Finnish band Morbid Evils give us their own dark, twisted and unbearably heavy interpretation of death/doom/sludge metal music which is both awe-inspiring and riveting. They trudge ponderously as if through a toxic, miasmic swamp, giving little idea as to where they’re headed, and then suddenly pick up speed and lash out or resort to earth-trembling heaving parts as a way of culminating their suspenseful journey spread out over four monolithic songs. Each one brings out different aspects of the curious personality, and it only helps in deciphering this phantasmagorical beast. Through rapid evolution, this entity has only grown stronger with each album, imbibing a plethora of human emotions to make their expression even more impactful without cutting down on its girth. A fascinating album devoid of any weaknesses, ‘Supernaturals’ is not only the band’s landmark release but it also takes the sound ahead for the style as a whole.

HARVESTED
, emerging death metal from Ottawa, Canada unleashed their debut EP earlier this spring. Each of the five tracks on the record revolves around mental illness, along with inspiration from horror and thriller movies/shows. Today, the band presents a drum playthrough for the pounding fury of their track "Delirium", a song about what someone could experience in an insane asylum.
"One of our more premature songs, but provides a wide variety of riffs and blast beats to showcase the mayhem that comes from a chaotic mind." adds drummer Jacob Collins.
The drum playthrough for "Delirium" can be viewed and heard via TheCirclePit - https://youtu.be/NiGruu-KK0w
Harvested's debut EP was recorded, mixed, and mastered in 2020 at Dark Moon Productions. The drums were recorded in 2020 at Silverwings Studios in Montreal. It is recommended listening for fans of Deicide, Suffocation, and Dying Fetus.
The band adds:
"Our debut EP is just a taste of what we’ve accomplished so far as an unknown band in the last 3 years of forming, though we have much more in store coming very soon!
We’re inspired by so many different styles of metal from old-school death metal to black metal to slam, it makes it interesting to tradeoff with each other and combine all the elements into one cohesive unit. Though we decided to take a different approach to lyrical content and our focus on the terror behind psychological experiences and mental illness
We are trying to keep that old-school death metal vibe alive to keep the old-school fans excited and more hopeful that this genre will never die, while utilizing and embracing new genres, styles, and production that will capture the ears of the newer generations as well as open a whole new world to the old school fans”. - HARVESTED
The self-titled EP was released on May 7th, 2022.

Brucia Records is proud to present HEGEMONE's highly anticipated third album, "VOYANCE", on digipak CD and digital formats. The album will be released on September 15th 2022.

https://idioteq.com/polish-blackened-post-metallers-hegemone-unveil-new-grand-epic-odium/

After releasing 2 previous LPs, HEGEMONE are back with an incredibly ambitious work, shaping their already bleak and oppressive sound into something even more grandiose, desperate and terrifying.
“Voyance” is an incredibly inspired album, conjuring suffering and a sense of calamity by carefully combining gloomy and gelid Black Metal with the savagery of hardcore and the heaviness of sludge: Folk instruments, electronic frequencies and freezingly cold riffs are all placed inside a massively dissonant wall of sound, creating a truly unique sonic nightmare.
A titanically heavy album, building a monumental and uncompromising architecture of rage, tension, disquiet and pain.

Long-running UK death metal band De Profundis have returned with the most extreme sounding album of their career yet while retaining the melodic sensibilities that they're known for over the years. The result is an exceptional album that has a lot going on at all times and is challenging and addictive in its own way. The musicianship in particular is outstanding. You can listen to two of their songs at the moment on Bandcamp
https://deprofundisband.bandcamp.com/album/the-corruption-of-virtue-death-metal

Release Date - October 7th, 2022
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Death, (early) At The Gates, Carcass, Martyr, Opeth, Sepulchral Curse, Live Burial, Cerebrum
Most bands mellow with age but nearly two decades since their inception, UK's death metal stalwarts De Profundis have only evolved to become more and more extreme with each album, their latest probably being their most intense, aggressive and challenging release till date. The musicianship too has only grown over the years and the accomplished members are setting new standards for themselves with each one and complementing each other better than ever before. The interplay is absolutely remarkable on this one with the songwriting being way more intricate and engaging. The album almost comes across as a technical death metal one, with various facets revealing themselves upon repeat listens and parts clicking together as a whole. They've expanded upon their newly belligerent form of death metal while carefully counterbalancing it with emotive melodies which has been their forte since years, and the result is a terrific and impressive blend of sound that only a few can manage to pull off without overdoing either of it. The album is an absolute treat for any fan of death metal who likes his music to be demanding, engrossing and well thought out.

Greek black metallers DIABLERY will team up with Polish-German act VĀMĀCĀRA for a tour of Poland and Germany in September 2022. Entitled “THE DEATH WOMB”, the tour will visit five towns and cities, starting in Kiel, Germany on 11th September and finishing in Bielsko-Biała, Poland on 16th September. Both bands will be promoting their latest full-length albums. 
30.7.2022News Diablery “The Death Womb” 2022 tour dates:
11 Sept - Die Pumpe @ Kiel, Germany Support: Thjodrörir
13 Sept - Bar 227 @ Hamburg, Germany
14 Sept - Liverpool @ Wrocław, Poland Support: Ethbaal
15 Sept - VooDoo Club @ Warsaw, Poland Support: Żółć & backbone
16 Sept - RudeBoy Club @ Bielsko-Biała, Poland Support: Devil in the Name
Hailing from Athens, Greece, Diablery was formed in 2008, with guitarist Nimerius and vocalist/guitarist Setesh being the core members of the band. After almost a decade of restlessness and member changes, the lineup was solidified with the additions of bassist XII and drummer Merenhor. Two years after their birth, Diablery recorded the demo/EP The Catharsis, which was later re-recorded in 2011 as The Eye EP. In 2014, Diablery released their debut album, Architect, which was mixed & mastered by Borge Finstad at Toproom Studio (Norway). In 2017, they honored their alliance with fellow Greeks Shadowcraft with the release of the split EP Entropy, which was mixed & mastered by Setesh at Void of Cosmos studio. In 2021, Diablery returned with their second full-length and grandest statement yet: Candles (Saturnal Records). 
The intention of Vāmācāra (Sanskrit for “left-hand path”) has always been to blend oriental and occidental music, aesthetics and philosophies. After founding the band in 2015, N. (drums, percussion) and A. (guitars, bass, vocals) have demonstrated this approach on their 2017 debut EP “Mantras for the Manifold”. Among the four tracks, you will find raw black and death metal, doom elements, but also a certain psychedelic influence and a subliminal 70s rock feeling. No Clean Singing summarises: “a multi-faceted, genre-bending, under-the-radar gem that should be spread around like the plague”. In 2022, the band released their debut full-length “Cosmic Fires: The Enlightenment Reversed” which Heavy Blog Is Heavy describes as “never sounding more unique”. The band are currently residing in Northern Germany and Warsaw, Poland. 
Each gig (with the exception of Hamburg) will be opened up by local support acts: Thjodrörir (Viking/Pagan Metal) in Kiel, Ethbaal (Sludge/Stoner/Doom) in Wrocław, Żółć (Hooligan Black Metal) and backbone (Atmospheric/Post/Doom Metal) in Warsaw and The Devil in the Name (Occult/Stoner/Doom Metal) in Bielsko-Biała.

About 10 years after a first EP released under the monker of SEVENTH WAVE, Swiss death/thrash/indus-metal crossover four-piece LETHAL TECHNOLOGY is about to give birth to its debut full-length effort called 'Mechanical Era' and planned for a CD & Diigtal release this fall.
30.7.2022News Lethal TechnologyFor fans of : Fear Factory, Strapping Young Lad, Devin Townsend, Dying Fetus...
In the meantime, the band shared a first look of this upcoming effort with the official music video of the single "Factory" available right now on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5y9o-ttN34o
...For the record...
Founded in Collombey in Valais, Switzerland in March 2011 by guitarist Cedric Ferret under the moniker of Seventh Wave, the band released a first EP called 'Programmed World' in May 2012 which will allow the band to play as an opening act for bands like Dagoba and to perform in France and Belgium.
In April 2017 the band splitted up but in July of the same year the bassist Julien Dulex joined Cedric Ferret to continue the adventure but this time under the name of Lethal Technology.
The two musicians worked on the composition of several tracks and chosed to program the synthesizer and drum tracks. Then LT has been joined be joined in February 2019 by the guttural singer Jade Hänni who quickly started laying down her first vocal lines.

After a few months of research, the Valaisan combo incorporated to its line-up the lyrical singer Sofiane Thoulon who comes from the world of classical and opera so as much to say that the contrast is quite clear. Then, it is Xavier Boscher, former guitarist of the band Misanthrope, who took the position of solo guitarist to participate in the first album.
From then on, the musicians started a huge production work in order to release the first album of the band which will see the light on Fall 2022.

Memphis (TN) - Melodic/Blackened Death Metal vets EPOCH OF UNLIGHT are set to release their first album in 17 years! The band's fourth full-length album, AT WAR WITH THE MULTIVERSE, will be released on September 16 through Dark Horizon Records.
First single "An Amarathine Line" is streaming now at: https://epochofunlight.bandcamp.com/track/an-amarathine-line-2
The song is also available on Spotify and YouTube.
30.7.2022News EPOCH OF UNLIGHTFFO: Intense melodic blackened death metal in the vein of The Crown, Dimension Zero, Swordmaster, Defleshed, Cardinal Sin, older Dark Tranquility and Necroticism to Heartwork-era Carcass.
Epoch of Unlight last released an album in 2005, The Continuum Hypothesis, on The End Records. With that album, their 3rd full length, they fulfilled their contract and decided to step away from being a recording and touring band, partially due to exhaustion and partially due to wanting to pursue other avenues in life. Though the momentum they had generated from tireless touring in support of their albums slowed, they would continue to write and perform, but several member changes would cause perennial resets in plans to record with a stable lineup.
In 2016, Scott Baggett joined the band as vocalist, allowing guitarist/vocalist Jason Smith to step back and focus on guitar. His vocal style, a classic death metal growl mixed with the same sort of highs used by previous Epoch of Unlight vocalists, added a new dynamic to the band’s established style. In 2018, Jason left the band, causing yet another setback. Josh Braddock, who recorded all of the guitars on The Continuum Hypothesis, returned to the group, bringing with him a chaotic yet melodic lead style to complement the more technical lead style of longtime guitarist John Fortier, and the lineup has been stable ever since.
The COVID pandemic, while forcing an end to live performances, gave the band a chance to focus on 10 songs, refine them, practice them over and over, run them through a lengthy preproduction until finally, in October 2021, they were ready to record their fourth album, At War With the Multiverse. They entered ABR studios with longtime friend and former guitarist Alan Burcham at the helm, who used his considerable patience and skills to capture the band at its tightest, highlighting the rhythm section of drummer Tino LoSicco and bassist Joe Totty, a pair that formed the steady nucleus of Epoch of Unlight ever since their second album.
The end result is 42 minutes of technical melodic death metal, full of hooks and relentlessly catchy, while still retaining some of the straight-ahead American Black Metal that started their career and garnered so much attention back in the 90’s. Lyrically, it follows the same sort of science fiction/fantasy themes as previous efforts. Sonically, it’s the best-sounding Epoch of Unlight album yet, a result of Alan Burcham’s meticulous attention to detail while recording and mixing … and mixing … and mixing again, and the band’s years-long effort to perfect their performances of these songs.
The album was mastered at Fascination Street Studios by Tony Lindgren, who has worked with some of the biggest names in death and thrash metal. Knowing this album needed to make a mark after such a long absence from recording, even as an unsigned independent band, they pulled out all the stops in performance and production.

Bio:
Epoch of Unlight is a melodic blackened death metal band from Memphis, Tennessee. The band formed in 1990, playing under a variety of different names including Enraptured and Requiem until 1994, when they officially settled on Epoch of Unlight.
In 1998 Epoch of Unlight signed with The End Records. Shortly thereafter the band entered the studio to record their debut full-length album, What Will Be Has Been. The band supported the release with numerous live shows including a five-week national tour with Norwegian symphonic black metallers, Dimmu Borgir and Samael and Florida Death Metal legends Monstrosity. The tour consisted of over 30 shows throughout the USA.
The band's second album, Caught in the Unlight!, was recorded in December 2000 with Keith Falgout (Soilent Green, Crisis, Crowbar and Cephalic Carnage, among others). This album placed less emphasis on the black metal aspects that had been present in their prior work, opting for a more melodic and technical death metal sound. The band supported Caught in the Unlight! with numerous live shows through the country including a two-week national tour with Enslaved and an appearance at the first annual Northern Lights Festival in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
The band entered Big Blue Meenie studio in New Jersey October 27, 2004, to record their third and final release for The End Records, The Continuum Hypothesis. The album was engineered and co-produced by Erin Farley (All Out War, Agnostic Front, Sick of It All, Madball, M.O.D., Overkill, among others). The band also supported The Continuum Hypothesis with numerous live shows through the country including a slot on the 2005 “International Extreme Music Festival" North American tour with God Dethroned, Nightrage, Hell Within, Thine Eyes Bleed and Lilitu.
On October 1, 2021, Epoch of Unlight entered the studio to begin recording of their fourth full-length (and first album in 17 years).

Join "THE EXPEDITION", the debut symphonic dark metal album from DAIDALOS now available as of July 29th via Extreme Metal Music. The German one-man band was founded in 2020 by drummer/pianist Tobias Püschner (former drummer of the technical thrash band Revolt).
The album was inspired after reading a book on Captain Sir John Franklin's Lost Expedition, a British voyage of Arctic exploration that departed with 129 men from England in 1845. Both ships, called Erebus & Terror, became icebound and after being trapped and suffering in eternal coldness for over a year, the remaining sailors decided to abandon their ships. Trying to survive, they set out for the Canadian mainland, but disappeared.
"The Expedition" is a musical journey through the Arctic Ice, on board with Sir John Franklin's crew. The different moods the sailors had to experience at that time probably went from heroic and enthusiastic to absolute hopelessness and daily mortal fear. I composed these atmospheres musically and told them as a concept album / musical story." says Püschner
"The Expedition" contains nine songs and has a total playtime of 47 minutes plus a bonus track.
Daidalos' concept can be described as a full orchestral and dark emotional cinematic journey combined with aggressive vocals and harsh guitars. Most of the songs recorded on the upcoming full-length contain clean choir vocals and fast-paced drumming along with each song being written exclusively on the piano first. The idea behind this way of songwriting is to first finish each track's own atmosphere with orchestral music and then use those emotions to create the harder parts.
For the recording of "The Expedition", Püschner recruited guest musicians and friends Martin Simon (Kambrium) (bass/backing vocals), Fabio Rossi (Tryglav) (lead guitar), Francesco Petrelli (guitar), Noga Rotem (choir vocals) who will also support Daidalos on live shows.
"The Expedition" is recommended for fans of Dimmu Borgir, Wintersun, and Fleshgod Apocalypse an available at the following links:

About:
DAIDALOS was founded in 2020 as a one-man band by Tobias Püschner.

The band´s idea is to combine a classical orchestra with fast and aggressive elements, to create atmospheric breakdowns of different mental states.
This happens along epic historic events and stories, to develop a heroic and often hopeless sad feeling.
After sending some demos of the debut album "The Expedition", Daidalos got directly signed by the label Rockshots / Extreme Metal Music in 2022.

On the sixth full length album, Abaddon Incarnate have perfected their sound that they have been honing over the years. They've balanced it adding more death metal influences and have made it far more expressive than ever before. The album is incredibly diverse and that's without diluting the intensity that they're known for. Moshpit Nation premiered another impressive track at https://www.moshpitnation.com/exclusive-track-premiere-abaddon-incarnate-hyperchaos/

Having been active since the '90s, Irish grindcore/death metal legends have only perfected their sound over the years, creating a quintessential blend of both the styles. They've come a long way from their explosive, highly caustic album 'Nadir' that put them on the map and have since then imbibed more death metal influences to improve upon their expression, adding better structure and nuance to their music. On their latest full length, their sixth, they've expanded upon their sound like never before, injecting myriad elements from thrash riffing to atmospheric passages and stringing them together using staggering transitions, and turning it into a fascinating beast of an album. Every song here offers something different, some even climaxing into a terrific breakdown or shapeshifting into something mind-blowing. The Wretched Sermon is easily their most diverse and expressive album yet, meticulously written to flesh out every nuance, while keeping things brisk and intense. Abaddon Incarnate are in top form here, crafting a potent and relevant album that's bound to go down as one of the best ones in this grindcore/death metal vein in recent years.

OBSCURA - “DILUVIUM SALE” 

The album, graced by a cover artwork painted by internationally renowned artist Eliran Kantor, will consist of 11 new studio tracks and the tracklist reads as follows:
01) Forsaken
02) Solaris
03) A Valediction
04) When Stars Collide (feat. Björn ‘Speed’ Strid)
05) In Unity
06) Devoured Usurper
07) The Beyond
08) Orbital Elements II
09) The Neuromancer
10) In Adversity
11) Heritage

OBSCURA wrote, recorded, and finalized “A Valediction” during the pandemic. The stipulations of working during this time allowed OBSCURA to work cross-country, tracking each respective part—drums, guitar, and bass—in national studios across The Netherlands, Austria, and Germany. Once the pieces were completed, the recordings were shipped off to award-winning producer Fredrik Nordström and Studio Fredman (In Flames, Architects) in Gothenburg, Sweden, where Kummerer and Münzner completed vocals and acoustic guitars using custom-built ENGL amps. Nordström was also tapped to mix and master. The final result is a deeper, heavier, yet more rounded production.

GUTTURAL DISEASE – “THE FORESEEN DEADLINE”

20.7.2022 News GUTTURAL DISEASELabel : Brutal Mind
Release Date: July 16th 2022
Genre: Brutal Death Metal
For fans of: Beheaded | Skinless | Disgorge| Brodequin
The walls cannot hold. With each passing hour of ceaseless bombardment the end draws nearer. The cracks begin to appear, running like wounds through the centuries old stone and the slavering hordes that wait in the mud grow more frenzied as they watch. The mud, a gross paste of churned soil, blood and fragmented bone, clings to their stinking hides as they snarl and scream, tearing at each other’s grotesque, engorged, naked bodies – desperate to unleash their thoughtless, violent lust in the streets of the holy city. The death throes of this ancient bastion of the light will be terrible to behold, a cornucopia of carnage. Another devastating impact, another shower of dust and debris, another howl of longing and the countdown to destruction continues...
As the Doomsday Clock moves inexorably towards midnight Indonesia’s Guttural Disease are here to remind us of The Foreseen Deadline! Since their formation, eleven years ago, the band have been working towards this moment – the release of their full length debut of gut-ripping brutal death metal. The Foreseen Deadline combines accomplished musical dexterity, a mastery of the art of constructing memorable death metal anthems and an innate ferocity that will leave listeners breathless. Devilish riffs are delivered with a crisp efficiency, blast beats explode in a torrent of skin-flaying velocity and hellish vocals are vomited up from the depths of the earth – all of this augmented with moments of unnerving atmosphere and deft touches of chilling melody. This is brutal death metal at its most potent and stunningly effective. From the thundering call to arms of ‘West Java Central Legion’ and the methodical torment of ‘A Flesh, Bones And A Mind’ to the seething malice of ‘Bloodstained Altars’, The Foreseen Deadline is a monumental construct of masterful brutality.
It’s been seven years since the first tentative steps of Guttural Disease’s Periodical Torment EP and now they have come of age in no uncertain terms. The Foreseen Deadline will be unleashed by Brutal Mind on July 16th and Guttural Disease will carve their way through the masses to brutal death metal’s top table. The clock is ticking, the walls are crumbling and The Foreseen Deadline approaches!

KILL EVERYTHING / NECROTICGOREBEAST / VIRULENT EXCISION / GOREPOT – ACTS OF SADISTIC CRUELTY
20.7.2022News Acts Of Sadistic CrueltyLabel: Comatose Music
Release Date: August 19th 2022
Genre: Brutal Death Metal
For fans of: Devourment | Internal Bleeding | Disavowed | Mortician
In the sewers and cellars, far from the light, the dark, forgotten tunnels have been claimed by new rulers. Hunters and haunters, bestial predators that exist on the edge of urban myth and nightmare, they wade through excrement and death as they stalk their hellish kingdoms. They rule the shadows from thrones of bone, chewing on filth and feasting on rot, warped gods of brutish power and explosive violence. As untouched by morality as the rays of the sun they are the lords of the underworld, kings of the slithering, the twisted and the lost...
Four rabid attacks, four blows of the hammer...one colossal onslaught of brutal death! Comatose Music have brought together four imposing monsters from the furthest extremes of death metal to create Acts Of Sadistic Cruelty – a twelve track split album of unprecedented savagery and hideous intent.
First strike! From Texas, Kill Everything deliver three tracks of grotesque, relentless bludgeoning. Hostile, inhuman and punishing, these songs are the very definition of bestial brutality.
Disembowelling thrust! The Quebecois killing machine NecroticGoreBeast attack with massive slabs of riff power, delivered with wicked precision and unfathomable force. Technical brilliance and calculated song craft take their three songs to the next level of intensity.
Skull shattering impact! Chicago’s Virulent Excision combine thick, bloody riffs and domineering vocals, injecting them with violent velocity and daubing them in pure hate.
Final fatal cut! Featuring the diseased vocal exhortations of the legendary Larry Wang, Taiwanese lunatics Gorepot add insane humour to their thudding sonic detonations and dirty, addictive riffs. Utterly irreverent and brutal to the bone!
Housed in the awesome artwork of Aziz Blcxstry, which references previous album covers from all the bands involved in its montage of madness, Acts Of Sadistic Cruelty will be unleashed by Comatose Music on August 19th. This is an essential release for all devoted followers of brutal death metal, all those addicted to the ultimate expression of extremity and sheer bloody heaviness. Four distinct styles of brutality slug it out in a no-holds-barred fight to the death – a feast of blood, gore and disgust!

Ernia have come up with a fascinating album that's multi-faceted and diverse without losing their intensity and drive. It easily stands out from the pack and it's highly recommended that you give it multiple listens to fully appreciate its intricate and refreshingly unconventional songwriting. Toilet ov Hell premiered another brilliant track which can be found https://toiletovhell.com/premiere-ernia-q/
Excerpt - “if you’re a fan of the more cerebral side of grind, then this is going to be straight up your alley” 
ERNIA  - “HOW TO DEAL WITH LIFE AND FAIL”
20.7.2022News ErniaGenre - Death Metal / Grindcore
Release Date - July 22nd, 2022
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Pig Destroyer, Gridlink,  Fuck the Facts, Full of Hell, Rotten Sound, Brutal Truth, Wormrot, Contrastic, Bathtub Shitter
With two members of Wormed in their lineup, Spanish grindcore band Ernia have managed to perfect the sound on their sophomore album which is both refreshing and riveting. The music is just as colourful as their artwork, full of intricate bits and with every song offering something different without abandoning the core sound. There is much to delve into here and every listen only enriches your understanding of their delightfully spastic music. To that extent, it’s almost like a technical album with the difference being that their momentum remains unabated while they throw up so much at you, and being so diverse, it only ends up being an utterly fascinating experience which is extremely rare in a genre largely known for its one-dimensional cathartic expression. The songs are incredibly structured, full of unpredictable twists and turns, buildups and breakdowns, and it never seems like a chore to sit through it because everything flows remarkably well and it’s even so goddamn catchy. Indeed, Ernia have crafted a masterful album that offers so much and yet retains its spunk, vivacity and of course, the skull-splintering intensity essential for the style.

NEWS 16.7.2022
Die sorgfältig kuratierte SAVATAGE-LP-REISSUE-SERIE geht weiter:“EDGE OF THORNS” & “HANDFUL OF RAIN” JETZT überall!”
Die 1981 in Tampa, Florida, von den Brüdern Jon und Criss Oliva gegründeten SAVATAGE machten schnell durch ihre kraftvollen Metal-Alben auf sich aufmerksam. Mitte der 1980er-Jahre trafen sie auf den versierten Produzenten Paul O’Neill und schon bald wurde ihr progressiver Metal-Sound durch eindringliche Orchestrierungen und eine starke melodische Komponente, gepaart mit eingängigen Melodien und komplexen Arrangements, definiert. SAVATAGE erweiterten nicht nur ihre künstlerische Bandbreite von Album zu Album, sondern auch die allgemeinen Grenzen des Heavy-Rock-Genres selbst.
Im August 2021 startete die umfangreiche Wiederveröffentlichung des gesamten Studioalbum-Backkatalogs von SAVATAGE in chronologischer Reihenfolge auf hochwertigen 12"-LPs via earMUSIC:
“Sirens”, “The Dungeons Are Calling”, “Power Of The Night”, “Fight For The Rock”, “Hall Of The Mountain King”, “Gutter Ballet” und “Streets – A Rock Opera” kehrten bereits nach und nach auf feinstem Vinyl zurück in die Plattenläden.
Jetzt wird die sorgfältig kuratierte Vinyl-Reissue-Serie mit der gleichzeitigen Veröffentlichung von zwei weiteren starken Alben fortgesetzt: “Edge of Thorns” (1993) und “Handful of Rain” (1994).
16.7.2022 News SavatageUrsprünglich 1993 veröffentlicht, ist “Edge of Thorns“ das letzte Album, auf dem Gitarrist Criss Oliva zu hören ist, denn er starb im Jahr der Veröffentlichung bei einem Autounfall. „Viele der Songs wurden für Criss' Gitarrenspiel geschrieben", sagt Jon Oliva. „Ich erinnere mich, dass die letzten Songs, die Criss, Paul und ich zusammen geschrieben haben 'All That I Bleed' und 'Miles Away' waren. Das sind noch immer meine beiden Lieblingsstücke auf dem Album.“ Dieser Album-Klassiker ist auch die erste Scheibe der Band, auf der Zachary Stevens als Leadsänger zu hören ist.
“Edge of Thorns“ erscheint als High Quality 45rpm Doppel-LP auf 180g Vinyl im Gatefold sowie als streng limitierte Sammler-Edition auf sonnengelbem Vinyl. Beide Editionen wurden für Vinyl gemastert und mit dem Original-Cover-Design und erweitertem Artwork, einschließlich eines 12-seitigen LP-Booklets, ausgestattet. Die limitierte Sammler-Edition beinhaltet zudem einen Print mit der ikonischen Cover-Illustration.
“Handful of Rain“ war das erste Album nach dem Tod von Criss Oliva. „Keiner von uns wusste damals, ob das, was wir taten, richtig war, oder ob wir einfach hätten aufhören sollen“, sagt Jon Oliva. „Man bot uns viermal so viel Geld für das Live-Tribute an, als wir für 'Handful of Rain' bekamen, aber wir wollten 'Alone You Breathe' machen. Paul und ich mussten diesen Song veröffentlichen, Criss zuliebe. So seltsam es klingt, aber das war das Wichtigste für uns.“
Auf dem Album findet sich auch der Song “Chance“, der als erster SAVATAGE-Song Kontrapunkt-Gesang enthielt – ein Stilmittel, das die Band auch auf den nachfolgenden Alben verwendete.
Fast drei Jahrzehnte nach seiner ursprünglichen Veröffentlichung ist “Handful of Rain“ nun wieder auf feinstem Vinyl erhältlich, wiederveröffentlicht als 180g Black LP Gatefold Edition sowie als limitierte Collector's Edition auf transparent blauem Vinyl. Beide Editionen wurden für Vinyl gemastert und mit dem Original-Cover-Design und erweitertem Artwork, einschließlich eines 12-seitigen LP-Booklets, ausgestattet. Die limitierte Sammler-Edition beinhaltet zudem eine Slipmat mit Cover-Print.
Ab sofort sind diese beiden SAVATAGE-Perlen wieder als 12“ Longplayer verfügbar, nachdem sie lange Zeit vergriffen waren. Mehr über die SAVATAGE-LP-Serie gibt es hier:  https://www.ear-music.net/savatage-vinylreissues/

"'Ignoto' ist eine trübe Vision, ein Albtraum, der an der Schwelle zwischen Leben und Tod stattfindet. Die Idee entstammt aus einer Science-Fiction-Geschichte, aber wir alle wissen, dass die Realität noch sehr viel schlimmer sein kann", sagt die Band.
Genreübergreifend, experimentell und verdammt düster - OvO haben mit "Ignoto" den Soundtrack zu den tiefsten Ängsten erschaffen.

RITUAL DICTATES
sind zurück und liefern mit ihrem neuen Lyric Video zu "BURN THE WIDOW" einen kleinen Vorgeschmack zum neuen Album. https://metalinjection.net/video/ritual-dictates-ex-3-inches-of-blood-streams-gloomy-new-single-burn-the-widow
RITUAL DICTATES sind zurück!Ihr zweites Album, NO GREAT LOSS, wird am 07. Oktober über Artoffact Records veröffentlicht und bringt eine dramatische Veränderung in ihrem Sound mit sich.
Justin Hagberg erläutert die Veröffentlichung:
"Diese beunruhigenden und deprimierenden Zeiten haben dazu beigetragen, dass sich der Sound von Ritual Dictates verändert hat. Das und die Vollzeit-Friedhofsschichten in einem Krematorium während einer weltweiten Pandemie".
"Und durch all das habe ich eine Fülle von Musik gehört, scheinbar bodenlosen Wein getrunken und No Great Loss geschrieben."
Neben der Albumankündigung geben RITUAL DICTATES auch einen ersten Vorgeschmack auf ihr neues musikalisches Abenteuer, die Single und das Lyric Video "Burn The Widow".
16.7.2022 News Ritual DictatesWeiter kommentiert Hagberg den Track wie folgt:
"No Great Loss wird mit Burn The Widow eröffnet. Es fühlt sich angemessen an, diesen Song zuerst vorzustellen, vor allem weil er viele der großen musikalischen Einflüsse des Albums einfängt.
Es ist auch der kürzeste Song auf dem Album, was es für jemanden, der nicht mehr als 3:52 unserer Musik ertragen kann, weniger langweilig macht."
Als die RITUAL DICTATES-Mitglieder Justin Hagberg und Ash Pearson beschlossen, ihre Kräfte für dieses Projekt zu bündeln, brachten sie all den aggressiven Death/Thrash mit, der ihre frühere Arbeit bei 3 INCHES OF BLOOD und REVOCATION ausmachte, während sie alle Konventionen über Bord warfen. Ihr Debütalbum Give in To Despair vereint Black-Metal-Merkmale wie rasante Tremolos und eisige Zwischenspiele mit Punk-Momenten und Rock'n'Roll mit eingängigen und lustigen Keyboard-Akzenten.
Die Supergruppe aus erfahrenen Musikern hat sich im Vergleich zum Vorgängeralbum mehr dem Gothic verschrieben und bringt Vergangenheit und Zukunft nahtlos zusammen. No Great Loss beginnt mit der funkigen Basslinie und dem hymnischen Gesang von "Burn the Widow". "My Solitude" geht in einen gefühlvollen, wiegenden Rhythmus über, während "Goth And Exhausted" uns in die Tiefen von Samtvorhängen und verrauchten Nachtclubs entführt. Das Album endet mit "Succumbing to the Ravages of Age" mit schwermütigen und lieblichen Akkorden und Texten, mit denen sich jeder identifizieren kann, der im Leben wächst.
RITUAL DICTATES ist ein überraschender Act, der keine Grenzen bei der Erkundung seines Sounds kennt. Hagberg und Pearson geben sich nicht damit zufrieden, sich auf ihren Lorbeeren auszuruhen, sondern zeigen mit ihrer Arbeit ein bemerkenswertes Risiko und Abenteuer. Das am 7. Oktober erscheinende Album No Great Loss ist nicht nur ein musikalisches Unterfangen, sondern ein künstlerischer Ausdruck, der zeigt, dass Künstler nicht definiert werden können und selbst der härteste Künstler eine poetische Ästhetik kultivieren kann.

Chile over the past decade has been one of the hotbeds for extreme metal, particularly for bands that pay homage to, and expand upon, the pioneering work done in the genre in the 1980s and '90s. Of particular note is Chilean thrash metal, a scene bursting with bands who take familiar styles and just do them better, faster, and more authentically than almost anyone.
Critical Defiance were one of the more pulverizing acts in thrash in 2019, with their debut album on Unspeakable Axe (Misconception) marrying high-speed riffing to Bay Area-worthy melodies. Now their follow-up, No Life Forms, has arrived, and the band shows no signs of slowing down. It's clear from the opening notes that the three-year layoff was well-used, both to refine their compositions and to gather the massive amount of energy necessary for another full-on assault. The album is a whirling tornado of how-did-he-play-that guitar riffs, barked Tom Araya-esque vocals, and an indefatigable rhythm section that never misses a beat or slows the pace for a second. Surprisingly pretty lead parts and memorable choruses will keep you on the hook and break up the brutality just enough, like the squirts of cool water given to bloodied boxers between rounds.
With No Life Forms, Critical Defiance have exceeded themselves and made what is sure to be one of the best thrash albums of 2022.

Forged in the mountains of Colorado, OAK, ASH, AND THORN have been spinning epic tales set to melodic death metal since 2018. They have released their second album “TO GAZE ON STARS OF FROST” and now have a music video for the single “Praise Unto the Immortals” ready for eyes and ears. The EP was received well by listeners around the world who appreciated the soaring guitar solos, harmonized vocals, and maturity the band has developed since their previous effort. They explain how their music continues to improve:

"The EP is very special and very meaningful to all of us in Oak, Ash & Thorn. It represents a culmination of the first era of this band, the first three tracks being proper recordings and reworkings of some of our earliest songs. It also serves to mark our path forward, with our first forays into vocal harmonies, and a seriously blazing guitar solo on "Suspended and Frozen" courtesy of Fabian Jiru (Trollfest/Fleshmeadow). The subject matter for most of these songs, meanwhile, is intensely personal to Adam, the vocalist/lyricist, dealing with the death of his father, isolation/addiction, and heartbreak, all through the lens of pagan metaphor. The music reflects that, and it's more somber on the whole than May Every Altar Linger. We remain rooted in melodic black/death metal, but there are more dynamics on display here, more shading, and we feel that these recordings are a distillation of our musical essence, what we've always been about, and where we're going.
16.7.2022 News Oak, Ash, and ThornLyrically, “To Gaze On Stars of Frost” is about the old gods, the ancestors, and the struggles that come along with being human. Musically it’s very melodic with three-part harmonies and plenty of blast beats. A formidable group, Oak, Ash, and Thorn stands out from the pack with Cierra White’s unorthodox drumming, Adam Armstrong’s dual clean & growled vocals and the layers of interweaving strings from Erik Hoffman and Jason Harding. The single “Praise unto the Immortals” is about the old gods of the world: the elements. Earth, air, fire, and water, and all their many forms. Musically, it invokes feelings of nostalgia and longing, layered with a healthy dose of aggression.
The album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Fabian Jiru (Trollfest/Fleshmeadow) who also provides a solo on the track “Suspended and Frozen”. The album artwork was done by Adam Armstrong.
Unique and orchestral, Oak, Ash, and Thorn provide a flurry of highs and lows set into a wide range of emotions that are both soothing and inspiring to listen to. They are recommended listening for fans of Borknagar, Tyr, and Immortal.
The music video for “Praise Unto the Immortals” can be viewed at https://youtu.be/5o5GsBz2Row
The EP “To Gaze On Stars of Frost” was released on May 26, 2021.
Track Listing:
1. Praise Unto the Immortals - 5:32
2. Anthem to the Forest of Our Ancestors - 5:16
3. Ride! - 5:14
4. Suspended and Frozen - 8:16

About:
Oak, Ash & Thorn arose along Colorado’s Rocky Mountain front range out of a collective passion for heavy metal and old-world paganism. Their debut album, May Every Altar Linger, was released in 2018, laying the band’s foundation of melodic death/black metal shaded with traditional European folk music. The band teamed up with Fabian Jiru of Trollfest/Fleshmeadow to record the To Gaze on Stars of Frost EP, released May of 2021, and is now touring in select states throughout the western United States.

Post-punk sludge lords NEGATIVE 13 have joined forces with DeadRhetoric.com for the exclusive premiere of the band's newest album, MOURNING ASTERI.

The album marks NEGATIVE 13's first release in nearly 20 years. Guitarist Edward Banchs comments, "We are more than happy and relieved to finally get this album out into the world. It took us the better part of 2021 to write it after 12 years of not playing together. So this is quite the exhale. It’s a great representation of who we were, who we are now, and where we want to go musically. Lyrically, this album comes from a dark place of loss, mourning and the feeling that happens when we have to let go though we know all we want to do is hang on.”
Vocalist/lyricist Scott Fisher also chimed in on this long-awaited release, "This album should be used as a pain reliever. Darkness brought to light. Channeling loss, love and redemption. Art created heals all wounds."

Formed in 1999, the Pittsburgh, PA quartet, NEGATIVE 13 (once known as Negative Theory), has continued to have a bit of an identity crisis. Describing their sound as post-punk infested stoner/sludge/doomcore, NEGATIVE 13 carries a curiosity that has allowed the band to reform after a hiatus with a wide-open palette of taste that reflects their artistic vision: interpret their brand of heavy metal however it is they feel fit. 
 Originally disbanding in 2003 after releasing their self-titled debut, the members never stopped communicating the idea of returning to the stage after going their separate ways—reuniting, however, for several shows in 2008 and 2009. After years apart, 2021 proved to be the year that things fell back into place for NEGATIVE 13, with original members drummer Chip Reynolds, vocalist Scott Fisher, and guitarist Edward Banchs reforming with the intention of fulfilling their original vision—writing albums that would leave a footprint in the metal world. With the 2021 addition of bassist Mary Bielich, the band worked on completing their second album, Mourning Asteri, in late 2021, further elevating their sound to new heights.

16.7.2022 News MY FUNERAL The torchbearer of dark Helsinki thrash MY FUNERAL has released its second single of 2022. The single titled ”NIRVANA OF NEGATIVE” delves deep in the realm of mental demons; addictions. Featured is also a brand new music video, produced fully by the band.

“We decided to challenge ourselves and produce the music video on our own. It reflects our live stage presence as well as the message of the song - addictions and the world they create. That which may feel like heaven, but in the end might drag you down to hell.”, the band reflects.
My Funeral reveals that the new single and earlier released ”Primitive Evil” are part of a full length album, which will be released later this fall through Inverse Records. The album features new angles, which haven’t been heard of earlier by the band. More information about the album will be revealed later this year.

VOLUNTARY MORTIFICATION – “SUFFER TO RISE”
16.7.2022 News Voluntary MortificationLabel: Rottweiler Records
Release Date: July 22nd 2022

Genre: Deathcore
For fans of: Carnifex | Suffocation | Despised Icon | Ichor
His disbelief in life beyond the grave was absolute; when the heart stopped beating there was nothing but a coffin; rot, dust and an empty eternity of oblivion ahead. Yet here he was in chains, here he was in the fire while a vile legion of impossibilities peeled the skin from his body – again and again and again – uncoiled his entrails time after time through a ragged ever-healing wound torn into his stomach. The screams were endless, the pain unceasing. Where was hope in this pit of horrors? Where was redemption in this nightmare of monstrosities? He howled to the heavens for a saviour, to the God he had thought naught but a dream...
Hailing from Lansing, Michigan Voluntary Mortification aim to be “a light in the darkness for those who are broken and hurting” but their message of hope is delivered with a sonic accompaniment of the most brutal kind! Their debut album, Suffer To Rise, features eleven songs of near unimaginable heaviness, each one connecting with the listener like a steam hammer to the head. Absorbing classic death metal influences into the blunt force trauma of their deathcore assault has yielded stunning results. Songs like ‘The Cull’ are armed with massive riffs and absolutely pulverising power. An ambitious concept album, Suffer To Rise tells the tale of a soul’s descent into the torments of hell and their ultimate redemption, with each step in that journey brought to life with slamming intensity. Producer and engineer Josh Schroeder (Lorna Shore, Ghost Bath, Dagon etc) has done an incredible job on this album, squeezing every last drop of venom from the throat-shredding vocal attack, skull shattering drums and dangerous, destructive guitars. It all adds up to a faultless display of force and fury. Nothing you hear this year will hit as hard as Voluntary Mortification’s Suffer To Rise!
Rottweiler Records will unleash the beast that is Suffer To Rise on July 22nd, wrapped in the artwork of Mohammed Anam (Evocator, A Templar’s Burden etc), an infernal vision of the suffering of the damned. Brace yourself for impact and prepare for this first bone-breaking barrage from Voluntary Mortification – this is one listening experience that you’ll never forget.

One of UK's best known death metal bands, LIVE BURIAL, are back with an astounding new full length that expands upon their established doomy death metal sound like never before. There are loads of intricate parts, melodic undercurrents and even rousing solos adding more colour to the proceedings.

LIVE BURIAL  - “CURSE OF THE FORLORN”
16.7.2022 News Live BurialGenre - Death Metal 
Release Date - September 23rd, 2022
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Asphyx, Unleashed, early Atrocity, Morgoth, early Vermin, Skeletal Remains, Thorn, Heads For The Dead
Two years after the release of their highly acclaimed full length ‘Unending Futility’, UK’s strongest purveyors of classic death metal Live Burial return with a new full length which is a staggering improvement over it in all conceivable ways. As if new techniques have been unlocked, the songwriting on this record is far more intricate and multi-faceted, with the band not only relying on their trademark lurching doomy death metal crawl but also expanding upon the scope by adding new textures and influences, including those sounding Finnish in origin. Despite these enhancements in sound, the music has only become faster, more aggressive and scathing, with vocals being acerbic enough to melt flesh but also somehow carry emotion, which in turn are magnified by excellent lead-playing. This is the culmination of the purest form of death metal worked upon to make it relevant, nay, cutting-edge in terms of extremity, technical proficiency and even emotive capability where this old school style of music goes.

SHURIKEN CADAVERIC ENTWINEMENT – “CONSTRUCTING THE CATACLYSM”
16.7.2022 News SHURIKEN CADAVERIC ENTWINEMENTLabel: Comatose Music
Release Date: August 5th 2022
Genre: Death Metal
For fans of: Morbid Angel | Deicide | Ripping Corpse | Dim Mak
They pour through the demon gate, the hungry ghosts and the bringers of plague; the Oni with their horns and tusks and skin the colour of sickness. Driven on by Enma, Lord of Hell, they come like an endless tide, whipped into a frothing fury by their colossal hunger for human flesh. Yet all that awaits them is the steel of our katanas, the wicked blades of our naginatas, our resplendent banners of war and a code of honour stronger than death...
Drawing on the complex history and vibrant mythology of the samurai, the powerful warrior caste of feudal Japan, Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement have carved out their own kingdom of intense and characterful death metal. It’s been nearly a decade since multi-instrumentalist Jordan Varela (Lust Of Decay) and vocalist Jay Barnes (Cesspool Of Vermin) unveiled their second album, Resuscitating The Vile and it seemed that the demonic duo may have fallen on their swords, consigning Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement to the dust of ages. However the silence has now been irrevocably shattered as third album, Constructing The Cataclysm tears its way from the creative womb! Featuring eight songs of fiercely implacable death metal, bristling with riffs like lethal weapons and Barnes’ unmistakeable devilish growls and howls, this album takes Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement to new levels of intensity and sheer class. From the opening war cry of ‘Insurrection Of The Diabolical’, through the malicious torments of ‘Insidious Spiritual Incarceration’ to the classic death metal magnificence of the climactic title track, Constructing The Cataclysm is a towering monolith of pure death metal, the perfect representation of Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement’s sound and approach. Domineering drumming, powerful melodies and classic yet inventive riffing bring a battlefield of gods, demons and legends to vivid, visceral, screaming life!
It may have been a long time coming, but Constructing The Cataclysm sees Varela and Barnes return stronger than ever before. When Comatose Music unleash this beast of war on August 5th there will be no denying the overwhelming power and potency of Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement. Recorded at Audio Helm Studios with Mike Clevenger, Constructing The Cataclysm possesses an incendiary sound that combines clarity of delivery with a snarling, venomous power. The final touch of magic has been applied by Andreas Christanetoff of Armaada Art (Aborted, Kraanium, NecroticGoreBeast etc) with some stunning samurai cover art. Armoured once more in the scales of the serpent god of war, Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement have returned and the cataclysm is nigh!

AWAKEN THE MISOGYNIST – “DESCENDED FROM VAST DIMENSIONS”
16.7.2022 News Awaken the misogynist (2)Label: Comatose Music
Release Date: September 9th 2022
Genre: BrutalDeath Metal
For fans of: Cerebral Incubation | Abominable Putridity | Visceral Disgorge | Crepitation
“To me Awaken the Misogynist is an outlet to shed light on the atrociousness of man through talking about the uncomfortable things that we continue to ignore. We are the disease.”- Jameson Blomgren
Lumbering from his stinking pit of consumerism and the glorification of ignorance, Mankind once more turns his attention to the mindless degradation and destruction of Mother Nature. With his latest technological wonder he brutalises her and dissects her; fuelled by his rapacious gluttony he poisons and torments her; blinded and senseless he burns her and laughs his idiot laugh as his own skin chars with hers. Another day of stupidity and cruelty passes, another day of staggering closer towards their mutual demise...
The savagery and foolishness of mankind distilled into one battering assault on the senses and delivered with the subtlety of a nose-breaking forearm smash and the black humour of a man on the steps of the gallows. With full length debut album Descended From Vast Dimensions, international slam collective Awaken The Misogynist hold up a mirror to humanity and demand we gaze upon our most repulsive imperfections. With lunatic levels of power, tracks like ‘The Cleansing Of Ignorance’ raze everything in earshot, like a demented cattle farmer torching swathes of the Amazon rainforest. Featuring all three songs from their 2020 debut EP Abuse Of Consumption (including the planet smashing title track!) along with a further nine haemorrhaging wounds of violence and disease, Descended From Vast Dimensions brings the pain with a combination of staggering velocity and gut-busting heaviness. Never has confronting the imminent demise of your world been so utterly exhilarating! Featuring members of Crepitation, Enigmatik, Slamentation, Facelift Deformation and Bodysnatch, Awaken The Misogynist have the experience to blast and destroy with absolute authority.
Now conscripted into the forces of Comatose Music, Awaken The Misogynist have the support and auxiliary firepower to forcibly submerge the world in the consequences of their wilful blindness and vomit inducing greed. Coming your way on September 9th, Descended From Vast Dimensions is the sickening slurry of slam that you deserve and the blunt force bludgeoning you’re going to get.

GREBER is a harsh grind/hardcore act, coming at ya’ from Ontario, Canada. They are releasing a new album “FRIGHT WITHOUT”, which will be their fourth full length, later this year and in anticipation, are getting listeners stoked with their first single “Into Silence”.
Even just as a duo, Steve Vargas (drums/vocals) (The Great Sabatini, BIIPIIGWAN) and Marc Bourgon (bass, vocals) (ex-Fuck The Facts) sacrifice nothing and deliver a rush of intensity boosting adrenaline in listeners. Bourgon writes most of the skeletal ideas, which always start from the lyrics. Even if it’s just the title, it has to be there before he can let loose. Once Vargas comes in, things start to take shape, and chaos can begin. They explain the single “Into Silence”:
“This song is well above either of our abilities playing-wise so I’m sure we’ll never rock it live, thank Christ. Just a blasting of riffs and drums and pain. Nice. As far as a lyrical theme goes it’s just a portrait scaling the finer points of dissociation. Steve is just full-on, triple E, BEEEAST mode on this number.”
For Greber, the lyrics are an ever-evolving slog through a myriad of different sources. According to Bourgon, it used to be an overly personal airing of this or that, but on “Fright Without”, he went to great lengths to make it hurt more and to branch out as far as he could. The duo has come a long way since their debut back in 2006, their current form is raw and relentless, a sonic battering of low-end stylings.
In terms of influences, Vargas and Bourgon share the same love for “no bullshit” type bands. “Bands that only need what’s coming out the speakers and nothing else” such as Yautja, Malevich, Gaza, and Converge. Recommended for fans of the visceral, Greber will be enjoyed by those with an interest in Man is the Bastard, Black Sheep Wall, and Primitive Man.
The music video for “Into Silence” can be seen and heard via its premiere on MetalInjection https://metalinjection.net/video/greber-brings-the-violence-with-new-single-into-silence
“Fright Without” is slated for September 9, 2022, and will be available from the following labels: Ancient Temple and Nofuneral for Vinyl, CD, and Cassette in Canada, Hibernation Release for Vinyl in the USA, and 7 Degrees and Fresh Outbreak for Vinyl in Europe.

VOMIT FORTH
release new song and video for "CARNIVOROUS INCANTATION" new album "SEETHING MALOVELENCE" out july 8th
Connecticut-based Northeast death metal powerhouse VOMIT FORTH have released their new song and video for “Carnivorous Incantation”. Watch the music video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ggc41OvRLDw
Band comments:
"Carnivorous Incantation is somewhat of a self-reflective song,” states VOMIT FORTH vocalist Kane Gelaznik about the track. “ It's about the effects of abuse on our psyche.  Abuse begets abuse like some horrible spell cast on us all.  The song is a way of trying to externalize, understand, and move past trauma.  This video is intentionally unnerving and spastic. We wanted the video to stick with you because of the subject matter of the song.  That's a big reason we decided to go with 8498.  I hope this helps victims of abuse of any kind to move past their trauma."
“Carnivorous Incantation” is the second track, following “Predatory Savious”, released off VOMIT FORTH’s forthcoming full-length album, "Seething Malevolence", which is set for release on July 8th. While the band is known for a sound that borrows from the underappreciated East Coast death metal blueprint belched up from bands like Internal Bleeding and Scattered Remnants, Seething Malevolence expands to more experimental and unexpected sounds, refracting the band’s love for the likes of Napalm Death  or Full of Hell. Seething Malevolence delivers on the promise of everything VOMIT FORTH has hinted at so far Northeast death metal.

FORSAKEN ETERNITY – “A KINGDOM OF ICE”

7.7.20222News Forsaken EternityLabel: Rottweiler Records
Release Date: July 8th 2022
Genre: Symphonic Blackened Metal
For fans of: Wintersun | Children Of Bodom | Dimmu Borgir | Vesperian Sorrow
Endlessly desolate, the jagged, frozen contours of the dead world stretch out into the darkness; empty and silent beneath the weak and pallid moon, its lustre fading as the fires of the sun burn down to flickering embers and so much blackened dust. The distant, long extinguished stars look down upon the cold grandeur with their long forgotten, lifeless eyes and chart a world’s last steps into the night. A thousand civilisations, a million loves and a billion tragedies...countless moments of joy and pain, centuries of heartache, hope and faith, all slip like ragged ghosts into eternity, ashes on the wind.
Finally breaking free of the silencing shackles imposed by the trials and tribulations of life, Portland’s Forsaken Eternity have returned with their monumental full length debut album. A Kingdom Of Ice is a glorious, grandiose, overwhelming tumult of sound; of charging rhythms, swirling keyboards and spiralling guitars. Raw and rabid vocals lead the frantic charge across an otherworldly landscape while breathtaking melodies entwine with cold iron riffs and devastating drumming from Jason ‘The Machine’ Borton (Exmortus, Jungle Rot etc). Symphonic metal, black metal, melodic death metal and power metal elements combine to create a sound that is dramatic, dream-inspiring and the sole province of this remarkable band. The epic ‘Endless Light’ typifies what A Kingdom Of Ice has to offer with its shifting moods and tempos, emotion, atmosphere, tumbling keys and searing solos – Forsaken Eternity have created an album of thrilling magnificence! A Kingdom Of Ice closes with a stunning cover of guitar maestro Yngwie Malmsteen’s ‘Rising Force’ which provides the perfect ending to this magical metal symphony.
Now allied with metallic powerhouse Rottweiler Records, Forsaken Eternity are finally in a position to bring their message to the world. On July 8th the summer sun will fade and a freezing storm of metal will descend from the mountains and forests of Oregon. Prepare to enter A Kingdom Of Ice and experience the staggering virtuoso vision of Forsaken Eternity!

EVIL IN – “AGE OF IMMORTAL DARKNESS”

7.7.20222News EVIL INLabel: Independent Release
Release Date: July 29th 2022

Genre: Death/Thrash Metal
For fans of: Possessed | Deceased | Soilent Green | Obituary

The earth lies in shadow, shattered and cold. The skies are an unceasing maelstrom of turbulent, roiling clouds, their darkness split and fragmented by jagged shards of lightning that stab down at the ground below, like a killer beyond madness inflicting wound after degrading wound upon a victim long since dead. The accompanying roars of thunder blend in dissonant harmony with rabid howls of lust and piercing screams of pain and terror; an infernal symphony that has replaced the multitudinous sounds of life.  The once fecund soil has been reduced to ash, a lifeless, unchanging landscape strewn with the carelessly discarded bones of stolen lives. This is the aftermath of demonic holocaust...
It is time to return to the nightmare world of endless death that was first revealed to us by Evil In’s debut EP, An Ethereal Force Beyond, a year ago. Welcome to Age Of Immortal Darkness – six tracks of rampaging, thunderous death/thrash metal, enfolded within eerie, unsettling intro and outro pieces that act as doorways into this world of terror. Once across the threshold the listener is flung into a twilight torn open by barbarous riffing, where drum beats fall like hammers upon mighty anvils and guitar solos constructed from broken glass and barbed wire cascade like star showers. Meanwhile a raw, unholy voice narrates tales of torment through the mists of strange, disorientating atmosphere. From the dynamic death of ‘Merciless Ancient Evil’, through the sinister assault of the ‘Demon Grave Robbers’, on to the stuttering faded glory of ‘Destination Earth’, Age Of Immortal Darkness offers a unique trip through forbidding hinterlands of death and thrash metal. In a time where so much music seems to topple off an endless conveyor belt of clones, Evil In bring their own character, personality and individual approach to their vision of metal. Even the artwork for Age Of Immortal Darkness, created by Jois Cabe (Gravestalker, Jaded Black etc) follows a different path from the herd.
While the An Ethereal Force Beyond EP was all the work of Charlie Murphy, the multi instrumentalist has now been joined by Steffen Banas of No Coffin and this alliance of talents has brought an extra dimension to the Evil In sound. Age Of Immortal Darkness possesses a depth of atmosphere and forceful strength only hinted at before. On July 29th the story of Evil In will continue to unfold – step once more into a future vision of horror and exhilarating fear...

Horror-fixated death metal supergroup Heads For The Dead are back with their third full length to transport you once again to the realm of classic horror movies and they do it most convincingly this time around, with a sound that has been suffused with all the necessary elements, including spine-chilling atmospheric parts and truly terrifying vocals. They have mastered the art of giving the listener a complete experience, elevating their songwriting skills and making the music far more expressive and multi-faceted without disowning their thrash/punk inclination, and bringing onboard another guitarist to enhance the appeal by way of scintillating solos. The album is an exercise in alternating faster, crushing sections with slower, moodier ones, while retaining the ominous horror sound, and given the constant variations, it makes for a compelling experience from start to finish.

VOLUNTARY MORTIFICATION – “SUFFER TO RISE”
2.7.2022 News Voluntary MortificationLabel: Rottweiler Records
Release Date: July 22nd 2022
Genre: Deathcore
For fans of: Carnifex | Suffocation | Despised Icon | Ichor
His disbelief in life beyond the grave was absolute; when the heart stopped beating there was nothing but a coffin; rot, dust and an empty eternity of oblivion ahead. Yet here he was in chains, here he was in the fire while a vile legion of impossibilities peeled the skin from his body – again and again and again – uncoiled his entrails time after time through a ragged ever-healing wound torn into his stomach. The screams were endless, the pain unceasing. Where was hope in this pit of horrors? Where was redemption in this nightmare of monstrosities? He howled to the heavens for a saviour, to the God he had thought naught but a dream...
Hailing from Lansing, Michigan Voluntary Mortification aim to be “a light in the darkness for those who are broken and hurting” but their message of hope is delivered with a sonic accompaniment of the most brutal kind! Their debut album, Suffer To Rise, features eleven songs of near unimaginable heaviness, each one connecting with the listener like a steam hammer to the head. Absorbing classic death metal influences into the blunt force trauma of their deathcore assault has yielded stunning results. Songs like ‘The Cull’ are armed with massive riffs and absolutely pulverising power. An ambitious concept album, Suffer To Rise tells the tale of a soul’s descent into the torments of hell and their ultimate redemption, with each step in that journey brought to life with slamming intensity. Producer and engineer Josh Schroeder (Lorna Shore, Ghost Bath, Dagon etc) has done an incredible job on this album, squeezing every last drop of venom from the throat-shredding vocal attack, skull shattering drums and dangerous, destructive guitars. It all adds up to a faultless display of force and fury. Nothing you hear this year will hit as hard as Voluntary Mortification’s Suffer To Rise!
Rottweiler Records will unleash the beast that is Suffer To Rise on July 22nd, wrapped in the artwork of Mohammed Anam (Evocator, A Templar’s Burden etc), an infernal vision of the suffering of the damned. Brace yourself for impact and prepare for this first bone-breaking barrage from Voluntary Mortification – this is one listening experience that you’ll never forget

The band's new album "EXHUMED INFORMATION" is out now via Time To Kill Records. New LP variants - along with the fifth reissue of the acclaimed sophomore album "Tropical Sun" - are now available:
https://fulcicult.bandcamp.com/album/exhumed-information

https://tropicalsun.bandcamp.com/releases
https://timetokillrecords.bigcartel.com/category/fulci

"Exhumed Information" continues the paradigmatic experience of the band as a tribute to (cult Italian film director) Lucio Fulci’s filmography. The album is a concept based on the film "Voices from Beyond” (1991). This is not one of the most established and praised Fulci’s works, having actually been made in the final (low budget) phase of his career, yet it is still a very interesting giallo / horror enhanced by a peculiar dark aura.
Once again, FULCI draws inspiration not only from the death metal genre and greats like early Cannibal Corpse, Obituary and Bolt Thrower, but the macabre thrills of 80's horror soundtracks as well (Fabio Frizzi, John Carpenter, Goblin).
"Exhumed Information" is a very intriguing chapter in FULCI’s discography, as the album has been structured in two parts that explore all the facets of the FULCI sound. The A-side is purely death metal while the B-side has been conceived as a movie soundtrack. All the synth parts were written and performed specifically for FULCI by the electro / soundtrack project TV-CRIMES. This side in particular embodies a reverberating sense of eeriness, danger and fear: the brooding sound feels dangerously unsettling, lacing its churning atmosphere with catchy melodies that travel right through your ears to your central nervous system.
"Exhumed Information" was recorded at Till Deaf Recording Studios by Ando Ferraiuolo. Mastering was entrusted to Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Cirith Ungol, Tomb Mold). The cover artwork was designed by SoloMacello (Sadist, Elvenking, Black Rainbows). Layout and packaging design by Ascionemagro studios.

BROTALITY – “THE WOODS WILL END YOU”
2.7.2022 News BrotalityLabel: Rottweiler Records
Release Date: June 3rd 2022

Genre: Progressive Thrash Metal
For fans of: Mastodon | Megadeth | Damn The Machine| Kinetic Dissent

Never stray from the path...it’s a warning that’s been ingrained in the human psyche through the ages. Our folklore and fairytales from every culture speak of the dangers awaiting those who succumb to curiosity, temptation, or bravado; those who fail to heed the lessons of their forefathers. There are wolves out there between the trees, wolves that hunger for the warm rush of blood released. And deeper within the shadows, in the places where even the wolves fear to tread, there are monsters; devils who wait to tear you down and tear you apart. If you must venture through the woods, beneath the canopy of secrets, don’t listen to the whispers and the promises, don’t go chasing illusions of beauty...stick to the path – or your end is assured.
The Woods Will End You is the second full length album from New York’s Brotality, following in the wake of ‘21s Worldwide Desolation. Its complex compositions walk the hinterlands of thrash metal, reaching out into the shimmering realms of progressive metal, drawing the essence of both together and weaving them into a breathtaking new tapestry of many colours. These songs capture the many layered fabric of the wild woods – the beauty, the danger, the mystery, the darkness and the light. Crisp, incisive riffs and muscular, powerful beats fuse with sublime melodies and uplifting solos that will open up your heart. Vocals, snarling and intimidating, dramatic and richly melodious tell their stories over intriguing rhythms and captivating, characterful music. To the willing listener The Woods Will End You will reveal something truly remarkable and in songs like ‘The Moon Below’ and ‘Sunseeker’ there is real treasure to be found – as long as you never wander from the path!
Formed by brothers Bryce and Reece Maopolski in 2016, Brotality has evolved at a stunning rate. In just a few short years they have blossomed into an accomplished and challenging band, drawing equally from Megadeth, Mastodon and their own fertile, musical imaginations. Rottweiler Records will release The Woods Will End You on June 3rd and this hugely impressive album needs to be heard!

Polish grindcore stalwarts HERIDA PROFUNDA are pleased to announce their upcoming second album "POWER TO THE PEOPLE", due out July 22nd 2022 via 7 Degrees Records (Europe), 783 Punx (UK), Wise Grinds Records, Give Praise Records & To Live a Lie (US).
Today the band is premiering the title-track, "Power to the People", at IDIOTEQ. Stream it

The album’s first single “Hunters Will Be Hunted" is still available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7z4GK8OPxfQ
“Power to the People” has been firmly built over the columns and foundations of grind and crust punk, and it captures the band’s collective frustrations and personal journeys through these turbulent times. An album that showcases the band sounding tighter than ever before. An overdose of gut-wrenching grindcore which is heavy, engrossing and undoubtedly brutal.
"It took us ages to write the new album and then, even longer to record it. During that time, we've been witnessing changes that ruling party in Poland are imposing on normal people, silent acceptance for extreme right, Polish women stripped from their basic rights, takeover of national TV to spread propaganda. The title, as well as lot of lyrical content is a comment to this situation. We have always been a band with a political message, but maybe the way to win the struggle is to cut off all political content, self-organise, resist, do your own thing, build your own world where justice is served and the machine of corruption and suffering collapse. Fire To Parliament! Power to The People!".

ITUS
 is a Toronto-based death/doom/sludge band that came together in 2018. They released their debut EP “PRIMORDIAL” in 2020 and after a period of incubating new material they are ready to hit the scene with force. They have been sitting on some singles since December and now is the time for them to release the first, “STURGEON” - the heaviest music they have written to date. They set out to make this new offering very heavy, shocking, but also catchy and widely accessible to all music fans. The dramatic, horror-themed video will also catch the eye of viewers along with its guest appearance from Canadian rocker KO as the "bait dude" character. The band explains the video and song in further detail:
“We wrote Sturgeon in a few sessions using a hook Brandon previously came up with. It just flowed organically from Brandon. Eerily, almost all the lyrics and vocal phrasing flowed seemingly from Reinier during the same writing sessions. The lyrics comment on apocalyptic guilt, with satanic ritualism juxtaposed with Christianity. We named our single Sturgeon because we knew we wanted to develop and shoot a music video that involved Brandon’s cottage, which is built on an inlet out of Sturgeon Bay, Ontario. Sturgeon are also huge prehistoric bottom-feeding fish with armoured skin, which is metal.”
For ITUS, “Sturgeon” is a fun bridge between their roots in death metal and where they plan to take their new music. They hope fans will enjoy the slightly more sludgy, heavier direction that is exemplified on the single. They place a great focus on hooks and have become more focused. They intended to get back to the stage in June, and those who get to see them live will be inundated with an energetic, atmospheric abrasive heavy metal experience. They aim to mystify and shock people with their performances.
The atmosphere in “Sturgeon” is creepy and ominous, and the band also incorporates a more modern-sounding metal mix while still maintaining that quintessential doom/sludge sound that fans will recognize. They are recommended listening for fans of Crowbar, Conan, and Windhand.
The music video for “Sturgeon”, which was partially directed by Apogean guitarist Dexter Forbes who also adds a guest guitar solo on the track, can be viewed via its premiere on TheCirclePit -https://youtu.be/F0DBTMS8BfI

Finnish symphonic melodic death metal band CLAMORIS is set to release their debut album OPUS LIMBONICA on October 28th 2022 via Inverse Records. The first single "Rage, Rain Down on Them" is released today and lyric video is available here: https://youtu.be/xD7W8hpVo20

Composer & lyricist Sami Selkäinaho comments:
" "Rage, Rain Down on Them" is the first single of our upcoming debut album, Opus Limbonica.

The song is the shortest song of the album and represents the fastest side of Opus Limbonica. It's the best song to kick things off as it condenses what the album is about to a tight package. Revolving around melodic delivery, the song utilizes a few symphonic, namely ones characteristic of Baroque music, concepts to aid us deliver this bitter ode to the Apocalypse. A subtle black metal presence lurks along the music, giving the offering a slightly haunted atmosphere.
Right from the beginning, it should be clear that our music is not the easiest type to pull off. Our group consists of highly competent musicians and "Rage, Rain Down on Them" also reflects this. The guitar solo by Joonas Kinnari in particular showcases the demanding side of Clamoris' output and is a taste of what to expect of Opus Limbonica, where the neoclassically inspired bitter and haunted metal concept is expanded on to great lengths."
Listen to the single on streaming services: https://push.fm/fl/clamoris-rage
Biography:
Founded in 2017, Clamoris set out to bring to life their vision of neoclassically inspired extreme metal.

Originally planned as a two-man studio project formed by keyboardist/composer Sami Selkäinaho and vocalist/bassist Niko Peräkorpi, but feeling that due to the demanding nature of the songs a full band effort would be highly beneficial. They introduced drummer Tom Israels and guitarists Joonas Kinnari & Samuli Kaakinen to the music who, upon hearing the material, agreed to join the band.
After working out the songs for the album, rehearsing them for a while and demoing one of them on the latter half of 2018 the band felt they were ready to start working on recording the debut album, named "Opus Limbonica", which was finalized and ready for release in 2022.

Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide,we are honored to welcome into our family obscure New Zealand based death metal terrorscapers EXALTATION, an elusive band emerged from the elite of their country's extreme metal underground with debut album “UNDER BLIND REASONING”, a towering beast over five years in the making.

Leading up to the record’s long awaited release, the closing track from the monstrous album has been revealed by illustrious extreme metal blog Toilet Ov Hell (and in collaboration with the famed Death Metal Promotion YouTube channel) who in introducing the song “Divider of Redemption” has remarked how the track “is a monstrosity emerged from the abyss, part doom, part dissonance, all foreboding. It’s like Grave Miasma by way of Incantation, touching on the former’s blackened death mastery and the latter’s umbral delivery. It is dark, it is devastating, it is vile, and it is glorious“ - you can check out the feature and the track https://toiletovhell.com/premiere-exaltation-divider-of-redemption/
2.7.2022 News EXALTATIONAfter a long silence New Zealand bestial death metal horde Exaltation finally unveil their first proper full-length offering, "Under Blind Reasoning", after a demo tape had surfaced back in 2017 amongst generalized obscurity. Indeed what we find on this debut offering is something distant from the lo-fi quality of the promising but under-produced demo, and sees the band tap instead into a realm of vehemence and aural destruction of unseen magnitude and terror. Feral, enveloping, monumental and sprawling in its unrelenting wrath, "Under Blind Reasoning" sees the obscure New Zealand death-bringers whip the sum of their influences (Immolation, Morbid Angel, Incantation, Deicide, Blasphemy) into a coercive realm of shelshocking torment and rise from the depths of obscurity like a cataclysmic weapon of mass-destruction. The album's dense and multidimensional recording quality (courtesy of engineers Raj Singarajah and Cam Sinclair along by mastering from Luke Finlay of Primal Mastering) has yielded a death metal beast of truly unsettling proportions. Every instrument and the utter violence with which it is wielded appears on full display, as the listener is helplessly left annihilated, blow after to blow, to witness the band's tight, savage and merciless performance and technical proficiency literally maul down the fabric of reality piece by piece. These are death metal songs from a realm of perpetual darkness that bare a load of death and ruin of unprecedented traits. Songs of boundless terror and oblivion that evoke eons of darkness and an immanent and oppressive presage of complete inevitability as the music roars out of the speakers with ominous grimness and near-weaponized violence. All hail the realm of darkness and death conceived by Exaltation, one where the death metal craft is reborn as a feral ungovernable force to inflict merciless ruin unto this mortal plane and all that dares to attempt to exist within it.  
“Under Blind Reasoning” is scheduled for global release on July 29 2022 via Sentient Ruin laboratories worldwide on CD, LP, MC, and digital formats, along with an exclusive limited edition long sleeve shirt.
Thank you as always for your time and attention given to our releases.Sincerely, Sentient Ruin

KANINE brings a perfect blend of brutality, power and groove, and are sure to turn heads with Karnage! KANINE was formed in early 2020 by four friends with the same passion for heavy music and bassdrop, creating their brand of brutal slamming deathcore in the vein of Within Destruction, Extermination Dismemberment, Acrania, and the like.
Expect nothing but pure heaviness!
In the band's own words:
"Karnage is real! This is the first time we have the idea of producing something we want to show to the people. It’s a result of several months of composing all together with the desire to speak about humananity's condition and society who make almost every worst choice possible. But, we also see the force we have together, right in the Covid and quarantine period, we stayed focused on our project ,and we wrote an album we can be proud of."

One-man death/doom project SEEP has released a song visualizer for "GORGING ON THE GUTPILE," taken from its full-length debut, HYMNS TO THE GORE

Hailing from the rural countryside of Maine, SEEP mastermind Vomitus set out to expand upon his 2020 demo by adding elements of goregrind and brutal death to an already violent doom/death foundation. The end result is eight depraved offerings of unfettered, old-school brutality. 
SEEP will release Hymns to the Gore on vinyl, CD, and digital formats via Extremely Rotten Productions on July 8. Gurgling Gore Records will release the album on cassette.

German one-man symphonic dark metal band DAIDALOS founded in 2020 by drummer/pianist Tobias Püschner (former drummer of the technical thrash band Revolt) will be releasing the debut album "THE EXPEDITION" this coming July 2022 via Extreme Metal Music.

2.7.2022 News DaidalosThe album was inspired after reading a book on Captain Sir John Franklin's Lost Expedition, a British voyage of Arctic exploration that departed with 129 men from England in 1845. Both ships, called Erebus & Terror, became icebound and after being trapped and suffering in eternal coldness for over a year, the remaining sailors decided to abandon their ships. Trying to survive, they set out for the Canadian mainland, but disappeared.
"The Expedition" is a musical journey through the Arctic Ice, on board with Sir John Franklin's crew. The different moods the sailors had to experience at that time probably went from heroic and enthusiastic to absolute hopelessness and daily mortal fear. I composed these atmospheres musically and told them as a concept album / musical story." says Püschner
"The Expedition" contains nine songs and has a total playtime of 47 minutes plus a bonus track.
Today, Daidalos shares the second single "Northlight" and explains the track in further detail.
"With Northlight, I composed the grand finale at the end of the album. The song is about the dying seamen whose souls go to heaven to the northern lights. Actually a song about friendship and the good old times, where you never know when they might be over. Musically again a power song with a fantastic guitar solo by Fabio. Northlight will surely be a brute wall live. The end of the song is actually written as an outro of an orchestra and closes the album."
Listen to "Northlight" at https://youtu.be/NV6TIp4qY1g
Digital - https://bfan.link/northlight
Daidalos' concept can be described as a full orchestral and dark emotional cinematic journey combined with aggressive vocals and harsh guitars. Most of the songs recorded on the upcoming full-length contain clean choir vocals and fast-paced drumming along with each song being written exclusively on the piano first. The idea behind this way of songwriting is to first finish each track's own atmosphere with orchestral music and then use those emotions to create the harder parts.
For the recording of "The Expedition", Püschner recruited guest musicians and friends Martin Simon (Kambrium) (bass/backing vocals), Fabio Rossi (Tryglav) (lead guitar), Francesco Petrelli (guitar), Noga Rotem (choir vocals) who will also support Daidalos on live shows.
"The Expedition" is due out on July 29th, 2022, and is recommended for fans of Dimmu Borgir, Wintersun, and Fleshgod Apocalypse.

About:
DAIDALOS was founded in 2020 as a one-man band by Tobias Püschner.

The band´s idea is to combine a classical orchestra with fast and aggressive elements, to create atmospheric breakdowns of different mental states.
This happens along epic historic events and stories, to develop a heroic and often hopeless sad feeling.
After sending some demos of the debut album "The Expedition", Daidalos got directly signed by the label Rockshots / Extreme Metal Music in 2022.

THŪN
 features Jon Higgs (guitar/vocals) and Hugo Wilkinson (bass) of MONSTERWORKS, alongside James Knoerl (drums, GARGOYL. Guest lead guitar was once again smashed out of the park by Karl Sanders of NILE.
THŪN's flavor could be described as epic death metal, spiced by discordant doom ...smothered with plenty of old school SABBATH and PRIEST influences.
The narrative concept is BULL ELEPHANT adjacent (an entity also part of the greater Eat Lead and Die Music collective), drawing from the same loosely Lovecraftian mythos but following the present-day adventures of an eco-witch-terrorist, i.e. rather than an undead Nazi-fighting pachyderm.* The enemy is every person or corporation that puts profit before preservation of the natural world. With tentacles.
THŪN is a virtual effort in that each musician, in the UK and US respectively, handled their own recording/production, with final mixing by Jon and dynamic mastering by Damian Herring (HORRENDOUS, Subterranean Watchtower Studios).
Track Listing:
1. Where All Truths Lie
2. Look to the Sea
3. Kiss the Ground
4. I Have Failed You
5. ...Completely
6. Zero Growth
7. Final Cut

MINENFELD – “NIGHT RAID” MLP repress out now!
The first press has sold out quick and we immediatly ordered a repress: 250 copies on oxblood red 12″ vinyl with etching on side B. Packed in black poly-lined bags, 300gsm cover with obi-strip and 150gsm art paper insert plus download code.
Spawning from the global death-surge, “Night Raid” by MINENFELD will definitely leave you a memento mori impression on one of the heaviest slabs of ancient death metal. Delivering death metal in its most skull crushing quality and mid-paced madness that once you have learned from BOLT THROWER, this German war master quartet sounds like a tank rumbling across the corpse landscape. Every time their deadly beats pounding, the guitar onslaught and the drums blazing — it encapsulates the atrocities of battle.
Recorded at the Eastern Bunker, their attack in a mere 14 minutes is free floating chaos like an everflowing stream under the command of Henner Rekorder as the sound engineer and mastered by Role at Tonmeisterei which assists the band in finally churning out its distinctive signature sound. And the cover art contributed by Jan Buragay profoundly channeled MINENFELD’s energy to explore their darkest fantasy in a combat zone of unending cruelty and savage barbarism. May the war on nationalism never end!
Fitting for their name, MINENFELD (German for minefield), if you are ready to listen to a record that was written on bloodied fields and driven by war without end that soaring woefully. This utterly compelling masterpiece is for you: https://lycanthropic.de/product-tag/lycanthropic-chants

NEWS 25 .6.2022
Der Dark Folk-Künstler SOWULO veröffentlicht die dritte Single mit dazugehörigem Lyricvideo zum Song "ÆT WEGA ĠELÆTA" von seinem kommenden Album "WURDIZ".
https://youtu.be/wrMai9uDFKI 
https://orcd.co/aet_wega_gelaetan
"Æt wega ġelætan" ist ein starker Song über das Treffen von Entscheidungen an möglichen Kreuzwegen im Leben.

Faber Horbach sagt: "Wann immer das Schicksal einen in eine ungeplante Richtung zieht, kann es ein ziemlich großer Schock sein. Gefühle wie Widerstand, Zweifel oder Angst können auftauchen, aber es gibt nur einen Weg, damit umzugehen, und das ist, mutig zu sein und nach vorne ins Ungewisse zu treten. Wir alle weben den Pfad unseres Lebens selbst. Wir alle nutzen eine Spindel, um unsere eigenen Fäden zu spinnen. Um unsere Fäden zu spinnen, suchen wir selbst die Wolle unserer eigenen Entscheidungen aus oder diejenige, die uns das Schicksal in die Hand gibt. Welche wirst du für das Geflecht deines Lebens nehmen?"
"Wurdiz" ist das altgermanische Wort für Schicksal. Es dreht sich alles um den Tanz zwischen Vorbestimmung und freiem Willen. Sowulos Gründer und Multiinstrumentalist Faber Horbach knüpft mit diesen Songs bewusst an dieses Thema an und lässt sich davon anspornen, der Erschaffer seines eigenen Schicksals zu werden.
Das Album handelt vom Schicksal als der sich entfaltenden Wendung der Ereignisse und der Reise, sich der eigenen Fäden innerhalb des Lebensteppichs bewusst zu werden. Während sich die zwölf Songs entfalten, verleihen die Nachbildungen historischer Instrumente in Kombination mit modernen Instrumenten und Produktionstechniken "Wurdiz" einen kraftvollen und cineastischen Sound, der Dich auf eine Reise nach innen mitnimmt. Während Carnyx, Leier, Nyckelharpa, irische Bouzouki, keltische Harfe und Blashörner Echos aus der fernen Vergangenheit erzeugen, erzählen Kehlkopfgesang, gesprochene Beschwörungen und kraftvoller Gesang die Geschichten auf einer tiefen emotionalen Ebene, begleitet von bombastischer Percussion und Streichern.

Faber Horbach über "Wurdiz":
"Das Leben oder unsere Realität kann als sich entfaltender Wandteppich gesehen werden, der aus allen möglichen verschiedenen Fäden besteht, die miteinander interagieren. Alle Fäden sind miteinander verbunden und halten sich gegenseitig an Ort und Stelle. Die sich entfaltende Realität, die im "Webstuhl des Lebens" Gestalt annimmt, basiert auf dem Zusammenspiel zwischen Deiner Entscheidungsfreiheit und Deinem Schicksal. Ist Dir bewusst, in welchem Faden Du Dich innerhalb des großen Ganzen befindest? Bist Du in der Lage, Deine Realität mit dem Schicksal zu ko-erschaffen? Das eigene Schicksal zu erkennen, ist der erste Schritt, sich bewusst mit seinem Schicksal zu befassen. So wird man zu dem, der man wirklich ist."
Das Album wird als CD-Digipak-Trifold mit 16-seitigem Booklet, normalem schwarzem und limitiertem grauem 2x12-Inch-Vinyl im Gatefold mit bedruckten Innenhüllen und geätzter D-Seite sowie digital erhältlich sein. Alle Formate können bei By Norse vorbestellt werden: https://bynorsestore.com/
Sowulo wurde vom Multiinstrumentalisten, Komponisten und Produzenten Faber Horbach gegründet. Fasziniert von der zyklischen Natur der Existenz und einer animistischen Weltanschauung ist Faber entschlossen, seinen spirituellen Weg durch seine Musik auszudrücken.
Das Schaffen melancholischer und kraftvoller Songs voller Geist und Tiefe ist die Essenz von Sowulo. Mit Texten in angelsächsischer Sprache und Musik, die mit (früh)mittelalterlichen und zeitgenössischen Instrumenten geschaffen wurde, werden der Schöpfer und der Hörer herausgefordert, auf eine innere Reise zu gehen und archetypische Weisheiten zu beschwören.
Sowulo, Sowilu, Sowilo, Sol oder Sigel, ist der Name der Rune s und bedeutet auf symbolischer Ebene "Sonne". Zyklen finden sich in jedem einzelnen Song bis hin zur gesamten Diskographie, sie verfolgt unsere Interaktion mit der Sonne und erzählt die Geschichte unserer inneren und äußeren Zyklen von Tag und Nacht, den vier Jahreszeiten, Geburt und Tod.
Seit 2013 veröffentlichte Sowulo drei völlig unterschiedliche Konzeptalben: "Alvenrad" (2013): eine instrumentale Ode an die heidnischen Jahresfeste; "SOL" (2016): eine neu komponierte und neu erarbeitete Akustikversion des Debütalbums und "MANN" (2019): ein Ausdruck der vier Jahreszeiten im Inneren durch die vier Archetypen: König, Liebhaber, Krieger und Magier. "SOL" und "MA" haben über zwei Millionen Streams zu verzeichnen!

FIGURE OF SPEECHLESS
: Vielversprechende Allstar-Combo enthüllt ersten Eindruck von kommendem Album,Single “DAY AND NIGHT” schon jetzt erhältlich!
25.6.2022News Figure Of SpeechlessMit (Ex-)Mitgliedern von Dream Theater, Guns N' Roses, Whitesnake u.a.! 
 Nach Monaten, vielmehr nach Jahren der Einsamkeit, des Abstands und des Alleinseins, ist das Verlangen nach gemeinsamen Erlebnissen, Jubel und Zusammenkünften beinahe allgegenwärtig – nicht nur unter uns Musikfans, die seit jeher Shows und Festivals herbeisehnen, sondern auch für diejenigen, die uns so viel Freude bringen und uns genau die Banger liefern, die wir so heiß begehren: auch unter den Musikern selbst.
Glen McMaster, ein wandlungsfähiger Songwriter und Gitarrist, hat diese Bedürfnisse auf ein neues Level angehoben, indem er Songs für eines der vielversprechendsten Allstar-Projekte der jüngsten Metalgeschichte geschrieben und produziert hat: Neben Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, Alice Cooper, Yngwie Malmsteen, Billy Idol), der den Schreibprozess seit Anfang 2021 begleitet, besteht Figure Of Speechless aus weiteren hochrangigen Namen wie Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (Guns N' Roses, Sons of Apollo), Ray Alder (Fates Warning, Redemption), Tony Franklin (The Firm, Blue Murder) und Brian Tichy (Whitesnake, Billy Idol, Foreigner, Ozzy Osbourne).
Figure Of Speechless’ erste Single “Day and Night” ist ab jetzt via SAOL auf allen Streamingplattformen erhältlich, das dazugehörige Musikvideo gibt es auf YouTube zu sehen.
Doch Figure Of Speechless werden nicht nur für einen Song zusammenarbeiten – ein Album namens “TUNNEL AT THE END OF THE LIGHT” erscheint am 02. September 2022 und kann bereits vorbestellt werden.
Songwriter Glen McMaster beschreibt die erste Single des kommenden Albums wie folgt: “Obwohl 'Day and Night' einer der letzten Songs in der Produktion war, besteht er aus einer Kombination von Sequenzen, die für den ersten Song des Albums geschrieben habe und ein paar jazzigen Gitarren-Akkordfolgen, die mir in den Sinn kamen, als ich noch um einiges jünger war. Beim Schreiben hatte ich irgendwie diesen Vibe des viktorianischen London und wollte zunächst Lyrics über Dr. Jekyll und Mr. Hyde dazu verfassen. Letztendlich habe ich dann doch über ‘Chance’ geschrieben, über die Wankelmütigkeit von Reichtum und Wohlstand und die flüchtige Natur des Lebens. Den Tag symbolisierend, ist die erste Hälfte des Tracks recht melodisch, während die zweite – die ‘Night’-Hälfte – viel dunkler und unheimlicher wird.”
Ebenso viel Abwechslung können die Hörerinnen und Hörer vom gesamten, 11 Tracks starken Album erwarten. Während der Kuratierung des Allstar-Kollektivs hat McMaster somit scheinbar ganz nebenbei das geschafft, wonach sich alle in den Monaten der Isolation gesehnt haben: Menschen aus aller Welt zusammenzubringen, um die Schönheit und Kraft der Musik zu feiern. Glen McMaster, der Mann hinter dem Konzept, bezeichnet den Sound des Gespanns als eine “Infusion aus fünf Dekaden progressiver Musik” – alle fließen in ein Powerhouse der Nostalgie, das Einflüsse aus der gesamten Musikgeschichte vereint. Beim genaueren Hinhören dürften Fans musikalische Elemente unerwarteter Tiefe entdecken, die Inspirationen reichen dabei von Beethoven und Django Reinhardt bis zu Rush und Dream Theater. Das Credo der Einigung endet also nicht bei den teilnehmenden Musikern – das Ding hat das Potenzial, weit darüber hinaus zu wachsen und wird ohne Zweifel einen ganz besonderen Platz in der diesjährigen Musikszene einnehmen.

Artoffact Records verkündet den Release von "THRESHOLD", dem neuen Album von CLOUD RAT, am 07. Oktober.
Hier kann man das Album vorbestellen:  https://cloudrat.bandcamp.com/album/threshold
Und hier gibt es die erste Single "Cusp" zu streamen:  https://open.spotify.com/album/1ScsurWyEHcEajRxj9OGvv
Mit mehr als 20 Releases und einer ganzen Schatzkammer voll Alben, EPs, Splits und Seven-Inches, die seit 2010 veröffentlicht wurden, ist Cloud Rat eine Instanz in der extremen Musikszene, die ein Vermächtnisdes Außergewöhnlichen erschaffen haben.
Jeder Schritt, den Cloud Rat machen, ist intensiv. Jede Note ist mit vollster Überzeugung gespielt. Cloud Rat ist ist der Sound von drei Menschen, die am Limit stehen - der Schwelle, also zu Englisch Threshold - und die immer 100% geben.
Obwohl Cloud Rat als Grindcore-Band gelabelt ist, hat das in Michigan ansässige Trio noch viel mehr zu bieten. Cloud Rats einzige Regel ist Authentizität. In ihren strafenden Songs bewegt sich die Band frei zwischen so einigen musikalischen Stilen. Vocalist Madison Marshalls markerschütternde Screams und Drummer Brandon Hills hyperaktives Schlagzeuggehämmere vermischen sich mit Gitarrist Rorik Brooks' epischen Riffs und gelegentlichem Syntheinsatz und werden zu Songs, die sowohl  knochenschmetternd als auch herzzerbrechend sind.
Gitarrist Rorik Brooks glaubt, dass das neue Album "Threshold" die Spitze der bisherigen Bandkarriere darstellt. "Für mich fühlt sich 'Threshold' an wie eine Antwort auf all unser früheres Material. Ich denke, wir haben nun endlich die finale Mischung von all unseren doch so unterschiedlichen Einflüssen gefunden. Das Album baut auf frühere Cloud Rat-Produktionen auf und erweitert sich selbst um das Songwriting, die technische Finesse und die allgemeine Intensität, während es auch mehr und mehr in die melodischen und elektronischen Gefilde gleitet, die wir in der Vergangenheit immer schon einmal angetestet haben."
"Threshold" wurde bei Brooks im Home Studio gemixt und von Harris Newman gemastert.
Wenn es um die Bedeutung des Albumtitels geht, sagt Brooks: "Ich mag den Gedanken, dass "Threshold" sowohl als Grenze, die nicht überschritten werden kann, definiert wird als auch als eine Passage, die gerade eben überschritten werden kann."
Vocalist Madison Marshall führt aus: "'Threshold' ist die ultimative Grenze. Wie im Wasser. Man kann nicht an die Luft gelangen, und wenn man versucht, an die Oberfläche zu kommen, fühlt man sich praktisch gewichtslos, weil einen so viel daran hindert, an die Luft zu gelangen. Es fühlt sich besser an unterzugehen."
"'Threshold' repräsentiert den jahrelangen Struggle, die Frustration und die Wut", sagte Drummer Brandon Hill. "Eben diese ultimative Grenze."

EMPRESS
erobern mit symphonischer Durchschlagskraft den Metal-Olymp . Symphonic Metal ist auch im übertragenden Sinne eine hohe Kunst – jeder, der schon einmal gedankenverloren durch himmlisch orchestrierte Soundlandschaften geschwebt ist und sich dabei in majestätisch-heimsuchenden Vocals verloren hat, weiß um die emotionale Kraft, die diesem Genre innewohnt. Es braucht einen ganz bestimmten Schlag Musiker, um diese zu reproduzieren – und Empress beweisen, dass sie es drauf haben. Das aufkommende Quintett rund um die klassisch ausgebildete Sängerin Barbara Blackthorne und Songwriter, Gitarrist und Mastermind Vlad Khavin aus den Vereinigten Staaten ist auf dem besten Wege, die großen Bühnen dieser Welt zu erobern und die Hörer:innen mit seinen kaleidoskopischen Arrangements in seinen Bann zu ziehen. Mit der neuen Single “INTO THE GREY” sind Empress in jedem Fall einen Schritt weiter auf ihrem Pfad in den Metal-Olymp.
25.6.2022News EmpressEmpress selbst über den aktuellen Song: “‘Into the Grey’ zeichnet ein Bild des Momentes kurz bevor man alles vertraute hinter sich läßt, um ins Unbekannte hinein seinen Träumen nachzujagen. Das Stück handelt von Aufopferung und der Hoffnung, die daraus hervorgehen kann.  Es ist ein schwungvolles, antreibendes Lied im Stile von Bands wie den frühen Nightwish oder Kamelot. Wenn du deinen Power Metal erhebend und anregend magst, ist das hier dein Ding!”
Während Szenegiganten wie Nightwish oder Within Temptation die Festivalbühnen bereits mühelos dominieren, ist für Verstärkung also gesorgt. Empress, die ihren verschachtelt, doch energetisch anmutenden Sound als Symphonic Power Metal beschreiben, mögen erst vor drei Jahren zueinander gefunden zu haben, doch ein eindrucksvolles Maß an Anerkennung in Insiderkreisen ist der Band angesichts ihrer ebenso mutigen wie effektiven Mischung verschiedenster Stile schon jetzt sicher.
Mit einer überzeugenden Kombination aus Blackthornes kraftvoller, vielseitiger stimmlicher Bandbreite und Khavins glanzvollen Kompositionen erschaffen Empress nicht nur einen einzigartigen Sound, sondern ein ganzes Klanguniversum, das nur darauf wartet, von Hörer:innen entdeckt zu werden – verschiedenste Techniken, Genre-Verschränkungen und treffsichere Riffs zwingen dazu, sich vor Empress schlichtweg zu verbeugen.
So ist es auch keine Überraschung, dass der schwedische Produzent Dan Swanö, unter anderem bekannt für seine Arbeit mit Heaven Shall Burn, Hypocrisy oder Bloodbath, dem kommenden Album “FATEWEAVER” (VÖ: 19. 08. 2022)durch seine Arbeit am Mix und Master seine Krone aufgesetzt hat. Versiert webt er die Soundwelten so geschickt zusammen, dass eine Einladung in das verheißungsvolle Universum der Träume und Fantasien von Empress verlockender nicht sein könnte.

Neuzugang beim Berliner Kultlabel FOLTER RECORDS: Das neueste Signing hört auf den Namen UNHALLOWED und bleibt lieber anonym.
Doch die drei Musiker sind Veteranen der hiesigen Black-Metal-Szene und werden später in diesem Jahr ihr Debütwerk veröffentlichen. Weitere Details sollen bald folgen – bis dahin könnt ihr euch in folgendem Clip einen ganz kurzen Eindruck verschaffen: https://youtu.be/yvVgMjLWw0A
Über UNHALLOWED:
Formed in late 2021, three veterans of the German scene gathered to create their own brand of Melodic Black Metal influenced by the Scandinavian pioneers and their own philosophies. Becoming known as "Unhallowed", they began forging their seperate identities into one common entity to capture the essence of the ever-burning black flame. Wraith, Valaraukar and Hedvika shall spew forth their sermons into the void.

Das teuflische Dampfross hat wieder Fahrt aufgenommen und brettert gut geschmiert, geölt und vorgeheizt heißen und aufregenden Zeiten entgegen …DEVIL'S TRAIN ARE BACK!
Für Fans von: Black Label Society, Whitesnake, Black Stone Cherry, The Dead Daisies und Alter Bridge.
Passend zum 10-jährigen Band-Jubiläum und zwei äußerst erfolgreiche Alben später geht die europäische Antwort auf Black Label Society, The Dead Daisies, Black Stone Cherry und Co. mit einem neuen Hammer-Longplayer an den Start. Sänger und Mastermind RD Liapakis (Mystic Prophecy, Steel Prophet) hat sich mit Drum-Monster Jörg Michael (ex-Saxon / Stratovarius / Axel Rudi Pell / Running Wild…), Tiefton-Legende Jens Becker (Grave Digger, ex-Running Wild / ex-X-Wild) und dem Saitenhexer Dan Baune (Lost Sanctuary, ex-Monument) namhaftes und kompetentes Zugpersonal an Bord geholt, das man getrost als Supergroup bezeichnen darf und die mit "Ashes & Bones" ein ehrliches, dreckiges und mit einem ordentlichen Schuss Sexappeal angereichertes Stück Southern Heavy Rock abliefert. Das Album glänzt mit einer zeitgemäß fetten Produktion, ohne dabei die gute alte Hard-Rock-Attitüde außer Acht zu lassen. Die Liebe zur Tradition, zum Blues und zum Rock'n'Roll ist bei jeder Note hör- und spürbar, und die Männer setzen das mit einer spielerischen Leichtigkeit, einer ordentlichen Prise Metal und ohne den typisch aufgesetzten Retro-Schnickschnack um. DEVIL'S TRAIN sind knallhart, DEVIL'S TRAIN machen ihr Ding und DEVIL'S TRAIN sind absolut authentisch!

Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide,we’re very proud to renew our years-long perverse partnership we have with Italian black ambient / death industrial demon CLAVICVLA"DEGENERACY OF THE 5TH DENSITY", the wretched third full-length album from the Italian soundscaping death-dealer, will be released July 22 2022 in collaboration with Cyclic Law.
25.6.2022News CLAVICVLA.Coinciding with the album’s announcement the track “Dead Bishop” has been revealed by always poignant underground music blog Everything Is Noise, who have remarked how "‘Dead Bishop’ presents CLAVICVLA in the act’s finest form, having refined its craft throughout its existence and earlier two albums. The ambiance-heavy, meditative pathos found here is otherwordly, conveying mental images of horrors and dreads both bodily and cosmic proportions while advancing in low-frequency tremors and constant hums, capable of inducing nightmarish state of being." - you can check the full feature https://everythingisnoise.net/premieres/gather-around-and-let-clavicvla-exhibit-dead-bishop-to-you/
From the artwork to the titles and themes, the intent of new full-length offering "Degeneracy of the 5th Density" is clear: worshiping and glorifying perversions, deviancy and immorality in their every form and shape. With these nefarious intents sole mastermind Ittiel has orchestrated the rise of this third aural plague of his around a creeping miasma of monstrous sepulchral ambience reeking from the ruptured bowels of oblivion, unfolding a forty-five minute sonic nightmare of absolutely omnipotent repulsiveness.
Corroding reality like a biblical plague, Ittiel has invoked these eight tracks of nefarious black ambient bedlam from a putrid death-scarred fog begotten of hell, conceptualizing its inverted spawn with blood freezing synthesis and a regurgitation of deconstructed soundscapes and wretched utterings hissing blasphemies from beyond the mortal plane. Dark ambient, black industrial, ritual drone, noise and subsonic horrors of all kinds are distilled by the demiurge into a sonic morass of total suffering and terror, and ritualized into a soundtrack to every broken soul's most hidden, vile and foul impulses. As usual cryptic and hermetically malignant in its bestial craft, it is not entirely clear or discernible what Ittiel's broken mind has conceived lyrically and thematically speaking in this new chapter of his abominable creation, but one can rest assured that immeasurable dissolution and abandon into the most depraved depths of perversion remain the ultimate prize of these noisome incantations that insult life and innocence at the most humiliating extremes imaginable.
"Degeneracy of the 5th Density"  will be released July 22 2022 on LP/MC/digital formats in collaboration with Cyclic Law handling the EU LP and CD versions.
Thank you as always for your time and attention given to our releases.Sincerely, Sentient Ruin

CHAOS ENGINE RESEARCH -  "FACES"

Second full-length studio album by Polish Groove/Death Metal band.
The second release is also a conceptual album, but unlike the debut, compositions do not form a chronological story, but are "novellas" connected by common ground.  Each track describes one of the characters - the titled "faces" are the ghosts of the past and memories, which are connected by the fact that they exerted a great influence on Chaos Engine Research members.
This time, the songs are more compact in their form, and the whole record is more aggressive and devoid of melodic vocal parts. This makes "Faces" a more "raw" album, veering towards Death Metal territory. It's still Groove Metal, but certainly more brutal and dark than the debut was.
Soundwise, it's definitely more of a guitar album. A lot of effort was put into the arrangement and preparation of vocal lines, so that the message is understandable for the listeners, even when the vocals operate in the registers of growl and scream.

25.6.2022News CHAOS ENGINE RESEARCHTracklist:
1. Freak 
2. Unknown 
3. Loser 
4. Ella 
5. Castaway 
6. Morpheus

Biography
Chaos Engine Research was founded in 2007 in Częstochowa, Poland. Initial line-up was: Marcin “Muzz” Grobelak (guitar), Krzysiek Dworak (guitar), Ivo Orleański (drums) and Mateusz Trzcinski (bass).
In 2008, Darek “Darrior” Januszewski (vocal) has joined, and a year later Jacek “Młody” Adamczyk (vocal) and Jacek Czekaj (who replaced Mateusz) were also on-board. In this configuration, Chaos Engine wrote their debut album called “The Legend Written By An Anonymous Spirit Of Silence”. Material was recorded, mixed and produced by Przemek “Perla” Wejmann at Perlazaa Studio, and mastered by Tue Madsen in Antfarm Studio, between 2011 and 2012. Once the recordings were finalized, the band focused on finding a publisher.
“The Legend” was released in September 2014, simultaneously by the Metal Scrap Records and Mighty Music labels. After The Legend Promo Tour in mid 2015, the band parted ways with Ivo, and the drummer position was taken by Matusz Królica.
In September 2016, “Młody” left the band. For a year and a half, CER searched for a replacement, making attempts to work with several vocalists (including Kamil Szafran from UDS) – eventually decided to continue with Darrior as the sole frontman in 2018.
Recording sessions for the second album called “Faces” took place from August to October 2019. Once again, the band decided to record in Perlazza Studio, co-producing the album with Przemek Wejman. Mastering was done in Hertz Studio by Wojciech Wiesławski.
The band wanted to release “Faces” in autumn of 2020 or at the beginning of 2021, however Covid’s era spoiled the band’s plans, due to touring bans. Finally, in summer 2022 the album was released by Metal Scrap Records.

FORSAKEN ETERNITY – “A KINGDOM OF ICE”
25.6.2022News Forsaken EternityLabel: Rottweiler Records
Release Date: July 8th 2022
Genre: Symphonic Blackened Metal
For fans of: Wintersun | Children Of Bodom | Dimmu Borgir | Vesperian Sorrow
Endlessly desolate, the jagged, frozen contours of the dead world stretch out into the darkness; empty and silent beneath the weak and pallid moon, its lustre fading as the fires of the sun burn down to flickering embers and so much blackened dust. The distant, long extinguished stars look down upon the cold grandeur with their long forgotten, lifeless eyes and chart a world’s last steps into the night. A thousand civilisations, a million loves and a billion tragedies...countless moments of joy and pain, centuries of heartache, hope and faith, all slip like ragged ghosts into eternity, ashes on the wind.
Finally breaking free of the silencing shackles imposed by the trials and tribulations of life, Portland’s Forsaken Eternity have returned with their monumental full length debut album. A Kingdom Of Ice is a glorious, grandiose, overwhelming tumult of sound; of charging rhythms, swirling keyboards and spiralling guitars. Raw and rabid vocals lead the frantic charge across an otherworldly landscape while breathtaking melodies entwine with cold iron riffs and devastating drumming from Jason ‘The Machine’ Borton (Exmortus, Jungle Rot etc). Symphonic metal, black metal, melodic death metal and power metal elements combine to create a sound that is dramatic, dream-inspiring and the sole province of this remarkable band. The epic ‘Endless Light’ typifies what A Kingdom Of Ice has to offer with its shifting moods and tempos, emotion, atmosphere, tumbling keys and searing solos – Forsaken Eternity have created an album of thrilling magnificence! A Kingdom Of Ice closes with a stunning cover of guitar maestro Yngwie Malmsteen’s ‘Rising Force’ which provides the perfect ending to this magical metal symphony.
Now allied with metallic powerhouse Rottweiler Records, Forsaken Eternity are finally in a position to bring their message to the world. On July 8th the summer sun will fade and a freezing storm of metal will descend from the mountains and forests of Oregon. Prepare to enter A Kingdom Of Ice and experience the staggering virtuoso vision of Forsaken Eternity!

Irish band Abaddon Incarnate are impressing listeners all over with the songs that have been revealed from the new album. It's clear that they're on the top of their game, not only delivering top notch grindcore/death metal, but also throwing in curveballs that no one would expect from them almost three decades into their career. No Clean Singing premiered another stunning song from their album https://www.nocleansinging.com/2022/05/04/an-ncs-premiere-abaddon-incarnate-shrine-of-flesh/

"There’s a wild, ferocious energy that surges through the song, from the mauling, chainsaw-toned riffing that pumps like a piston to the neck-cracking drumwork, from the dense seething and swarming guitar savagery to the caustic and thoroughly demented vocal vitriol" 
ABADDON INCARNATE  - “THE WRETCHED SERMON”
25.6.2022News Abaddon IncarnateGenre - Death Metal / Grindcore
Release Date - August 5th, 2022
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Napalm Death, Rotten Sound, Misery Index, Wormrot, Phobia, Nasum, Balance of Terror
Having been active since the '90s, Irish grindcore/death metal legends have only perfected their sound over the years, creating a quintessential blend of both the styles. They've come a long way from their explosive, highly caustic album 'Nadir' that put them on the map and have since then imbibed more death metal influences to improve upon their expression, adding better structure and nuance to their music. On their latest full length, their sixth, they've expanded upon their sound like never before, injecting myriad elements from thrash riffing to atmospheric passages and stringing them together using staggering transitions, and turning it into a fascinating beast of an album. Every song here offers something different, some even climaxing into a terrific breakdown or shapeshifting into something mind-blowing. The Wretched Sermon is easily their most diverse and expressive album yet, meticulously written to flesh out every nuance, while keeping things brisk and intense. Abaddon Incarnate are in top form here, crafting a potent and relevant album that's bound to go down as one of the best ones in this grindcore/death metal vein in recent years.

Chilean Thrashers CRITICAL DEFIANCE have partnered with Decibel for the premiere of "KILL THEM WITH KINDNESS," the second single from forthcoming album NO LIFE FORMS. Click below to stream!

https://www.decibelmagazine.com/2022/06/23/track-premiere-critical-defiance-kill-them-with-kindness/
"If you like your new-school thrash to sound old-school as fuck, look no further than Critical Defiance. The Ol band rips through 10 songs of gloriously ’80s riffage.  I can hear nods to Sepultura, Death Angel, Kreator and Slayer, but Critical Defiance combine those influences into a sound that’s their own. Tight, groovy, fast, and forever marching forward on a path of destruction."
- DecibelUnspeakable Axe Records will release No Life Forms July 18 on CD and digital formats.
Pre-order:  https://unspeakableaxerecords.bandcamp.com/album/no-life-forms
Chile over the past decade has been one of the hotbeds for extreme metal, particularly for bands that pay homage to, and expand upon, the pioneering work done in the genre in the 1980s and '90s. Of particular note is Chilean thrash metal, a scene bursting with bands who take familiar styles and just do them better, faster, and more authentically than almost anyone.
Critical Defiance were one of the more pulverizing acts in thrash in 2019, with their debut album on Unspeakable Axe (Misconception) marrying high-speed riffing to Bay Area-worthy melodies. Now their follow-up, No Life Forms, has arrived, and the band shows no signs of slowing down. It's clear from the opening notes that the three-year layoff was well-used, both to refine their compositions and to gather the massive amount of energy necessary for another full-on assault. The album is a whirling tornado of how-did-he-play-that guitar riffs, barked Tom Araya-esque vocals, and an indefatigable rhythm section that never misses a beat or slows the pace for a second. Surprisingly pretty lead parts and memorable choruses will keep you on the hook and break up the brutality just enough, like the squirts of cool water given to bloodied boxers between rounds.
With No Life Forms, Critical Defiance have exceeded themselves and made what is sure to be one of the best thrash albums of 2022.

CORAX B.M – “SPREAD THE OCCULT “
Corax B.M, the latest spawn of the Greek black metal scene, will release its debut EP entitled “Spread the Occult” on 27 May 2022 via Pagan Records after signing to the label earlier this year.
The band's most notable music element is the combination of primal Scandinavian black melodies, with a punk aesthetic and their main influences are Behemoth, Mayhem, Rotting Christ, Necromantia and Darkthrone.

Corax B.M was established in 2021 as a solo project by the artist Corax (aka Kostas Katoikos) who collaborated with drummer Morker (Yiannis Chariskos) and vocalist Énnea (Marita Makaronidi) for her use of “whisper vocals”. 
Later this year after rehearsing their first songs, they were joined by lead guitarist Dholos (Mike Darlis) and bassist Peisithanatos (Thanos Nanopoulos), so the project inevitably became a solid band. 
A legend of the black metal scene, The Magus (Necromantia, Yoth Iria), honoured the band as a guest vocalist on the song "Anilliagos" (Greek for Sunless).

POPIÓŁ- “ SZEPTUN “
Popiół’s band name (translates to “ash”) is taken from Thy Worshiper’s debut album of the same name and refers to the emotions, climate and spirituality of the iconic album. Soon after the release of that album, new melodies were created that were meant to be recorded for the next Thy Worshiper album in 1998, but that never happened. Although that atmosphere and those emotions were hidden, they never died. After 20 years, those melodies were released in the form of Popiół’s debut album “Zabobony” (Godz ov War Productions, 2019). Former and current members of Thy Worshiper have created music about what is hidden in the noise of trees, wind and streams. About what we are afraid to think about, and about those who come to us in our dreams. “Zabobany” was promoted with the video "Wybiło" from the workshop "Zaćma".
The band performed at numerous concerts, including the Castle Party festival in Bolków, and Uwolnić Muzyką in Środa Śląska alongside Rotting Christ.
While the pandemic has forced many bands to cancel or postpone concerts, for Popiół it was time to create the second album, “Szeptun”, and find a new drummer: Piet (ex-Thy Worshiper). 
“Szeptun” is to a large extent a concept album dealing with things that affect each of us every day, about madness, psychosis, death and suffering. About everything that is in our heads and what we are trying to erase. It is a direct journey into the total impatience of… our time. 
“Szeptun” track list:
1. Jestem Antychrystem

The latest Paganizer album officially just dropped and it's met with a great response all over. It's easily their most mature and tempered album till date, and bears a delectable mix of their kind of trademark heaviness coupled with melodic sections. The album gets better as it progresses and there's enough diversity for everyone to enjoy their music, if they're into this kind of old school death metal. The album is presently streaming in full on Bandcamp and YouTube, and the promo will be sent out again in case it's been overlooked. Thanks a lot to everyone who covered this release!

Swedish death metal giants Paganizer have taken their time to come up with their most mature album till date. They've honed their sound, become more expressive, and made their song structures even more elaborate, without diluting any of the qualities that we've come to expect from them. There is a flawless combination of tuneful riffs, stomping parts, brisk blasting and some of the best hooks in the genre, underpinned by a glorious albeit tasteful sense of melody. Littered with memorable riffs and stirring melodies, the songs are at once pummelling and evocative, ensuring the desired heaviness and managing to leave a lasting impression as well. The stunning Juanjo Castellano artwork lends to the album a mystifying, otherworldly aura that goes perfectly with this album where Rogga Johansson tries to go above and beyond the call of duty and delivers a hard-hitting and poignant masterpiece in this realm of death metal.

Hailing from Los Angeles, USA, OUR DYING WORLD has been hard at work over the pandemic forging a new path in the metal world. Initially, they were more in the vein of thrashy death and released their debut album in 2019, but now they have embraced the melodic side of things and present their new form to the world through “HYMNS OF BLINDING DARKNESS”. They explain further:
“It is an exceptional album of melody, personal experience, and the dedication of trying to push ourselves to our furthest limit. Lyrically, it speaks of many walks of life: sorrow, loss, hopelessness, but also empowerment, triumph, and solitude. There’s something for everyone to relate to in the wake of current times and cultural status. Musically, the record is attempting to stand out with its sophisticated arrangements, catchy hooks, and heavy melodies. It feels like a massive step up from where we were with Expedition and we think it’ll present itself as such.”
For the band, music comes from the spirit and when the lyrics happen, they’re usually derived from a personal experience or feeling that is going on in their lives. Musically, symphonic and melodic death metal isn't the only genre that inspires them, they also give prominent nods to blues through their leads and solos.
Sticklers for details, when it is time for the band to go live they will provide an experience that’s more personal, intimate, and involved for the audience, unleashing a torrent of deep emotion, intense passion, and flowing melodic death metal upon fans.
“Hymns of Blinding Darkness” was produced, mixed, and mastered by Alex Crescioni at Stygian Sound. It is recommended for listeners of Wintersun, Children Of Bodom, and Nightwish
The album “Hymns Of Blinding Darkness” can be heard in full via its premiere on Decibel Magazine .

About:
Over the last few years, Los Angeles’s Our Dying World has gone through a tremendous evolution of sound from thrashy death metal of their debut EP Expedition to the symphonic and melodic keyboard-oriented stylings of bands like Children Of Bodom, Nightwish, and Dimmu Borgir.
Formed in 2018 by drummer/guitarist Tom Tierney (ex-Whiplash), the group has played shows all over the USA in their short time together, bringing their sound from the fabled Sunset Strip in Hollywood to the New Jersey Metalfest where they opened for Metal Mike of Halford.
One thing is clear from the young band as they prepare for the release of their second release; they’ve come to stir the standards that hold the metal scene and redefine them.

The deadly duo of Canada's GREBER are a harsh hardcore concoction that have a solid new LP “FRIGHT WITHOUT” coming out this September 2022. Since getting together way back in 2006, they have come out with an impressive array of albums including four full-lengths and six splits with a myriad of crushing bands. “Fright Without” is being teased right now with an enticing short video, and for those that are interested in snagging the full release can pre-order it. Greber shares their excitement for the release:

25.6.2022News GREBER“Fright Without'” is a handleless staircase that disorients as much as it overwhelms. Our testament to suffering and hope, balance and woe, heaven and here. With Kurt Ballou lending his abilities to the mix we’re beyond happy with how the final product came to sound and we hope that the listener finds it to be as much of an escape as they do a confrontation.”
Looking forward to getting feedback from listeners, Greber quotes that the album is “the same but different” from their earlier releases. They’ve given it their all to deliver raw, unrelenting noise and the few who have had the chance to hear it, have mentioned it being a big change.
“Fright Without” is ten tracks written and performed mostly by Steve Vargas (drums/vocals) (The Great Sabatini, BIIPIIGWAN) and Marc Bourgon (bass, vocals) (ex-Fuck The Facts) who are joined on several of the tracks by various musicians. These additions add new dimensions to the tracks, giving the listener more to chew on.
Risen from the ashes of their former band Tugnut, Vargas and Bourgon figured they weren’t done playing music together, and the seedling of Greber was nurtured from its germination to be a loud and devastating live force that could be used to vent their various creative impulses and have a really fun time doing so. Fast forward almost 16 years and it is still something that delivers on that front for them personally so mission accomplished.
Those that get to see Greber play live can expect a succinct set, with limited banter, no guitar player, high decibel levels, and a few sweet LED lights. They are recommended listening for fans of Unearthly Trance, Man is the Bastard, and Black Sheep Wall.
The teaser video for “Fright Without” can be checked out now, the full release is slated for September 9, 2022, and will be available from the following labels: Ancient Temple and Nofuneral for Vinyl, CD, and Cassette in Canada, Hibernation Release for Vinyl in the USA, and 7 Degrees and Fresh Outbreak for Vinyl in Europe.

Today Italian dark metallers INNO - featuring current and former members of FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, HOUR OF PENANCE, THE FORESHADOWING and NOVEMBRE - are premiering the new single "THE SEED" (Aurora cover). Watch the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqQgSQolMAU

"We are big fans of Aurora. As many out there, we consider 'The Seed' to be one of her most powerful and beautiful songs yet. When Elisabetta pitched us the idea of this cover, it felt like the perfect choice.
We are fascinated with the idea of the seed, blindly wondering the earth to fulfil its existence and evolve into something more complex, deeper, organic.
Our take on the arrangement is a mix of all we feel INNO can bring to the table, yet respecting the song and focusing on the emotions this beautiful piece of music can bring to the listener.
In the video you can see Elisabetta performing the song while floating in water, surrounded by flowers and plants, exploring all the phases of this voyage, to then end on a deep reflection of what we, as humans, are doing to our environment.
We wanted to underline the powerful message of the song, adding layers that take this track well into the INNO sound.
The video has been carefully crafted by Elisabetta and the amazingly talented Luca Fantini".

INNO's debut album, "THE RAIN UNDER", released in 2020, is still available via Time To Kill Records.
"The Rain Under" was produced by the band and mixed by Marco Mastrobuono and Giuseppe Orlando in Rome. Mastering was handled by renowned Danish producer Jacob Hansen (KATATONIA, VOLBEAT, EPICA). Last but not least, the cover artwork was created by Decline Design.

03. Pale Dead Sky
04. The Last Sun
05. Night Falls
06. To Go Astray
07. Goliath
08. Scorched
09. Misericordia
10. High Hopes (Pink Floyd cover)
Emerging out of the Roman metal scene in 2017, INNO was founded by four veterans with the aim to create something that would differ from their past experiences within the metal world.
After spending a few months exploring their dormant influences, INNO came to shape a dark, doomy, heavy and progressive sound akin to eclectic acts such as Katatonia and The Gathering.

CARCERI – “FROM SOURCE TO END”
25.6.2022News CARCERILabel: Brutal Mind
Release Date: June 9th 2022
Genre: Death Metal
For fans of: Death | Bolt Thrower | Massacre | Suffocation
From the beginning an ending was decreed; our time was always finite and we were always destined to tumble into the flames at the end of the road. There will be no gentle descent into eternal sleep; we shall be impaled upon the spikes of folly, torn upon the racks of shame as our aeons of weakness and sin are weighed against our blackened, cowardly hearts. Save your beseeching tears and prepare for pain, for the termination in terror promised at our first breath...
Dutch death metal masters Carceri have seen the future and know that it is both bleak and black. With nihilistic new album From Source To End, their first release in more than a decade, they hammer the nails of destruction home with merciless, relentless power. Seething, monstrous tracks like ‘Eminent Demise’ leave no stone unturned, no sanctuary inviolate as they preach their gospel of devastation. Now fronted by renowned extreme metal vocalist Robbe Kok (Disavowed, Arsebreed etc) Carceri have delivered a veritable beast of classic death metal with From Source To End. Enticing, melodic guitar solos spiral upwards from the ironclad riffs and the panzer engine roar of the rhythm section, while barbed hooks sink deep allowing no escape from the magnificent war-torn tumult. By capturing the essence of death metal’s glory days and imbuing those sounds with a fresh ferocity Carceri have carved out a charismatic beast of an album whose claws will plunge into the rotten hearts of fans everywhere. The superb artwork created by Jon Zig (Defeated Sanity, Deeds Of Flesh etc) is like a banner, a call to arms, promising that might and mystery, death and desolation lie within.
With production duties being handled by vocalist Robbe Kok (Officium Triste, Houwitser etc) and drums being recorded by Dave Schinkel (Ayreon, Epica etc) From Source To End sounds both vibrant and venomous. This is one incredible return to action from Carceri and with Brutal Mind disseminating their darkness throughout the world this will undoubtedly prove to be their most successful campaign to date. Watch the horizon, because the death metal war machine is coming!

Italian horror metal veterans CADAVERIA unveil their latest video for "SILVER RAIN". The dark and atmospheric new hymn is taken from the band's sixth full-length record "EMPTINESS", out now via Time To Kill Records.
Watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TudpuqMOwTs

Frontwoman Cadaveria comments: "We want to thank you all for the great feedback you are giving us on the 'Emptiness' album! This video is dedicated to those who, finding themselves in adversity, have learned to dance in the rain, without waiting for the storm to end. Surely someone will see in some scenes an explicit homage to David Lynch, who has always been our mentor in the language of cinema, and to the recently deceased Julee Cruise".
Whether you call them horror, gothic or dark metal, one thing is certain: in their 20+ years career 

CADAVERIA have become one of the most iconic bands of the Italian metal scene.

CADAVERIA is the creative alter-ego of Italian-based metal singer Raffaella Rivarolo, better known by her stage name Cadaveria, one of the first women to hit the extreme metal scene in the early Nineties.
CADAVERIA band was founded in 2001 by Cadaveria herself and drummer Marçelo Santos, to freely express themselves as musicians and extreme artists.
Since CADAVERIA’s debut album The Shadows' Madame (2002) the band’s style is labeled Horror Metal. Their personal sound is imbued with gloomy and sinister atmospheres and it mixes Black Metal with classical Heavy Metal, Death Metal and Gothic influences. The lyrics, scheming, hermetic and introspective, mirror the dark soul and the vexed personality of the singer Cadaveria.
2021 is a meaningful one for CADAVERIA band, as the band celebrate its 20 years of activity. A career that boasts five full length albums, some reissues, an EP (with Necrodeath), a retrospective double DVD and a huge support from fans of Central America, where CADAVERIA have made a series of headlining tours, between 2007 and 2015.
From 2012 on, with the release of the most recent albums Horror Metal and Silence, CADAVERIA have been engaged in many live dates that have seen them protagonists of different stages in Russia, Germany, France, Belgium, Romania, as well as numerous Italian shows as headliner and in support of Cradle of Filth, Arch Enemy and many more.
CADAVERIA have recently released a series of new singles, that mark the band's return to the scene after a long pause, during which the singer had to be treated for cancer.

From the depths of the Niagara region in Canada, comes EATEN BY SHARKS with their new album “ERADICATION” produced by Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy). Initially, they were supposed to record in 2020, but those plans were dashed due to the pandemic. They are now ready to take listeners by storm with the follow-up to their 2013 debut “We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat” by starting with the single “Shallow Water”. Heavy odd-time beats swirl into catchy riffs, with sonic elements reminiscent of Meshuggah, Dethklok, and Dying Fetus. The first song on the album sets the scene for the nautical mayhem that echoes throughout the release. The band explains further:
25.6.2022News Eaten By Sharks“It was the last song written for the album, we already had most of the songs fleshed out for it. This song was thought of as a big ‘maybe’, due to not having much time to write it. However, it turned out to be one of those songs that flew together with little effort. It has an odd time swing to it that grooves and hits like a Mac truck. It then flip-flops between some harmonizing bridges, solos, and demonic typewriter-type polyrhythms. Matt then breathes life into the song with a bloody cove gone mad narrative. His vocal chops deliver some classic death vocals, mixed with some tasty staccato phrasing, fitting the instrumental structures perfectly.”
“Shallow Water” depicts the swift justice served up by sharks after humans impose on their homes. In its desperation to save itself, humanity forgets that there is always a bigger fish. The aquatic horror continues throughout the album, combined with punishing drum performances, unique guitar chords, and a progressive spin on technical death metal.
Eaten By Sharks splice their take on technical death metal with the apex predators of the ocean culminating in “Eradication”, a nautical-themed first-person horror experience. Fans of Fit For An Autopsy, Cattle Decapitation, and Revocation will be especially interested in taking the plunge into this new album.

TEETHGRINDER – “DYSTOPIA”

25.6.2022News TEETHGRINDERRelease Date:
July 22nd , 2022 (CD/ Digital)
September 2nd, 2022 (Ltd. Vinyl LP)
As on the two predecessors "Misanthropy" (2015) and "Nihilism" (2016) - both also on LIFEFORCE RECORDS - TEETHGRINDER rely on a sound base between grindcore and death metal. Elements from crust, hardcore and black metal round out the stylistic spectrum of the Dutchmen.
On the third album "Dystopia", one thing stands in the foreground: the Dutchmen consistently rely on relentless attacks and a gloomy extreme sound that makes its listeners restless and frightened. How could it be otherwise in view of the threatening scenery of a "Dystopia"! And even when TEETHGRINDER slow down the tempo, their tracks sound bitter and disillusioned.

BETWEEN THE KILLINGS – “THE KILLING QUARTET VOL. 1 - REFLECTION OF MURDER”
25.6.2022News Between the killingsLabel: Comatose Music
Release Date: July 1st 2022

Genre: Brutal Death Metal
For fans of: Cannibal Corpse | Deranged | Desecration | Lividity

“It's a process; it doesn't happen overnight, when you depersonalize another person and view them as just an object. An object for pleasure and not a living breathing human being. It seems to make it easier to do things you shouldn't do.” - Jeffrey Dahmer
They never understand that there is no point in all the begging and pleading, the stuttering attempts at conversation, at connecting with me, appealing to my ‘better nature’ with lists of their children’s names. I have no better nature, no empathy, no interest in their dull little lives. Once they are here in my windowless room there is no happy ending to the story, no last minute reprieve or dramatic rescue...there is only crying, screaming, bleeding – lots of bleeding – and eventually, eventually dying. Why must I do this? Because I want to. Because I like it. There’s nothing deeper than that, no more meaning to their ending, no more value to their tears.
Between The Killings take you inside the warped mind of a killer. Lead you down the shadowed passageways of their psyche, through rooms of crimson horror and chambers of wickedness. Reach out, touch the essence of cruelty and stare into the gaping void where a heart and soul should reside – this is the unsettling, unnerving experience of The Killing Quartet Vol. 1 - Reflection of Murder. Ferocious, brutal death metal supreme, wrapped in coils of agony and shrouded in terror, delivered by a team of seasoned savages, featuring current and ex members of Horrific Demise, Gorgasm, Lividity, Colossus, Mortal Decay and Rupture Christ. Vast riffs adorned with intricate guitar melodies, bestial vocals and cascading solos like fountains of blood, deft and dextrous rhythmic complexities all propelled by monstrous force, all surrounded by a miasma of fear. And this is just the beginning. Between The Killing will be releasing a series of four EPs, each one expanding on the tale of a serial killer, each one accompanied by a graphic comic bringing the twisted tale to life, with all artwork created by Karl Dahmer (Nunslaughter, Exhumed, Gutalax etc).
Under the scarred, skeletal wing of Comatose Music, Between The Killings will unleash Reflection Of Murder on their innocent victims on July 1st. Armed with an incredibly powerful sound, conjured up by Tony Tipton (Kraanium, Metal Against Coronavirus etc), this EP will strike like a hammer to the skull. Dry your tears and prepare to be taught the meaning of pain, the lessons of brutality, the gospel of death – Between The Killings are on their way!

Hamilton, ON, Canada's obscene and brutal avant-garde quartet 30 IMMOLATED; 16 RETURNED have a new music video inspired by the terrifying reimagining of Paulo Passolini’s infamous film Saló or 120 Days of Sodom based on The Marquis de Sade’s novel of the same name. "THE ANTECHAMBER OF HELL", which is a track off the band's 2019 self-titled debut album, is a video that might be too gruesome to watch and the band is giving a warning that it might be NSFW for some, so make sure you're in a safe space when viewing.

25.6.2022News 30 immolated;Dr. Death (garotte and vomit) adds:
"The video encapsulates imagery from the entire story including the abduction, torture, and eventual murder of a chosen victim portrayed by actress Xena T. With the aid of make-up artist Stacy Vervaecke, Duane Lyons of Bangover Media storyboarded, planned, filmed, and edited the video himself proving himself to be a force to be reckoned with in the metal video genre. The video perfectly reflects the band’s sexually sadistic lyrics and aesthetic appearance in the debut self-titled album."
Watch "The Antechamber of Hell" via its premiere on TheCirclePit - https://youtu.be/VeHbrCAyAeo
30 immolated; 16 returned are one of Canada's most despicable extreme metal bands. Developed through intense and abstract systematic theories of chaos and transgression – 30 immolated depicts the sexual taboos found in the Marquis de Sade’s 120 Days of Sodom, through a non-stop battery of screaming guitars, punishing drums, and thundering bass accompanied by the cries of torture and violence. In addition, Madame Champville often brings her favourite pet(s) / slave(s) along, who under threat of further violence, distribute gifts of Shit Cookies and Blood to the band’s spectators.
30 immolated; 16 returned began their sadistic journey in Edmonton, Alberta, but have since moved to southern Ontario in search of new willing victims! They have since performed several concert dates in Toronto and Hamilton, most notably at the Hamilton Death Fest for Neurotic Entertainment and as openers for Toronto’s own Arcanevil, and for Mexican death metal outfits Darkside Ritual and Disrupted.
30 immolated; 16 returned ’s sonic violence has been exported internationally with physical and digital sales in China, the United States, and Slovenia. Their goal is to continue to expand their terror throughout southern Ontario, Canada, and beyond to the rest of the world!
They have unleashed two albums, their latest offering was released in 2021, “The Burial of the Dead”, an arrangement of Igor Stravinsky’s controversial 1913 ballet “The Rite of Spring”, which followed the band's 2019 self-titled debut.

2) Into Megatopheth
3) Effigies of Obsolescence
4) Adipocere Feast
5) Etched Shadows
6) Fustuarium
7) Festering Carcinolith
Following up their hugely respected 2 demos (also available as a compilation) and fairly recent 7-inch, CHAOTIAN is back to release ultimate Death Metal barbarity into the underground in the form of their debut full length. Storming into life with a rotten amalgamation of putrescent riffing and blast beats, the instrumental unity of this Danish titan is a juggernaut of pure filth. It is telling when a band can have those super groovy pinch harmonic laden riffs and not make them sound like all the others. This may seem a weirdly specific observation (perhaps a guitarist just being a guitarist) but it makes all the difference with heaviness, intensity, and also the catchiness on the records. When met with the sewer-spewing vocals and weird dissonant spasms in the music, it doesn’t take long to recognize this will be a truly warped and maniacally brutal experience of Death Metal might.
Interlinking primitive hooks that grasp you by the throat and then transcend into these weird effects or spacious riffs, there’s nothing predictable about the album yet it has that familiar feeling that all good Death Metal has where it feels a bit daunting, unnerving and yet you cannot escape it. Obviously, Denmark and this trio do not let the scene down. Amazingly this small country seems to have so much diversity in its rotten underground movement and CHAOTIAN is a shining example who embodies the grotesqueries, masterful songwriting, and tight musicianship that has become associated with this otherwise pretty and peaceful nation. It explains that mysterious gurgling from the sewers at least!
Bludgeoning, cavernous, and ultimately otherworldly, CHAOTIAN masterfully combines the cerebral and cosmic with brutish, old-school music that is damned heavy and doesn’t feel pretentious nor directionless. Their debut LP is not just as strong as their previous works, but has a more refined and complete vision, showcasing the band's full potential (so far)…

MALPHAS – “DIVINITY’S FALL”
17.6.2022News MALPHASGenre: Black Metal
Label: Folter Records
Vertrieb: Alive

VÖ: 13.05.2022
MALPHAS wurden 2014 von Raven Dust (Guitar), Xezbeth (Guitar) und Excelsi Astaroth (Vocals) in der Schweiz gegründet. Die Band hat sich von Tag eins dem okkulten Black Metal verschrieben. 2015 kam mit „Occult Propaganda“ ein erstes Demo auf den Markt, die der Band innerhalb der Schweiz und darüber hinaus erste Beachtung verschaffte. Auf dieser Grundlage erschufen MALPHAS ihr erstes vollwertiges Album. „Incantation“ erschien 2017 und brachte die Band auf die internationale Black-Metal-Landkarte. In den folgenden Jahren fing die Band verstärkt an, live zu spielen – es folgten Auftritte in der Schweiz und Deutschland. Zur Unterstützung wurden über die Jahre verschiedene Musiker zur Verstärkung an Schlagzeug und Bass für Auftritte engagiert. 2020 schloss sich J. (Forgotton Tomb) als Schlagzeuger an. Live werden MALPHAS zudem vom Bassisten F. Unterstützt, um bei ihren Bühnenritualen die volle Wucht der Band zu entfalten.
Ende 2021 unterschrieben MALPHAS beim Berliner Kultlabel Folter Records, um das neue Album „Divinity’s Fall“ zu veröffentlichen. Das zweite Full-Length-Album der Schweizer wird seine unheilige Botschaft erneut in treibendem Black Metal verbreiten, veredelt von finsteren Melodien. Nicht umsonst wurden schon zu Zeiten der Demo häufig Dissection und Watain als Referenzen genannt.

Alles begann im Jahr 1982, als die New Wave of British Heavy Metal von Großbritannien ausgehend ganz Europa eroberte. Dies war der Startpunkt für MAD MAX-Gründer und -Gitarrist Jürgen Breforth, seine musikalischen Träume wahr werden zu lassen.

17.6.2022News MAD MAXMAD MAX war geboren, und nun, im Jahr 2022, nach 15 Alben und Konzerten auf der ganzen Welt, feiern MAD MAX ihren 40. Geburtstag. "WINGS OF TIME" ist Jürgens Vision von MAD MAX. Mit Julian Rolinger am Mikro erfassen MAD MAX perfekt den Style und das Gefühl ihrer 80er Jahre-Wurzeln, aber sie bringen den MAD MAX-Sound gleichermaßen auch noch ein Stück vorwärst. Die erste Single "Too hot to handle" ist eine heavy melodische Rockscheibe mit einem magischen Groove. Radio-DJs, die die Single bereits gehört haben, konnten nicht fassen, dass diese Band aus Deutschland kommt. Sie dachten, es sei eine Newcomerband aus den USA, aber keine deutsche Band mit bereits 40 Jahren Geschichte auf dem Buckel. Wer sich "Best part of me" anhört, das vom wundervollen Spirit von Jimi Jamison von den SURVIVORS inspiriert wurde, der wird genau wissen, wovon die Radio-DJs gesprochen haben.

Finnish band Morbid Evils create some of the thickest, darkest and heaviest kind of music blending genres of sludge, doom and even death metal. What's more, despite their ponderous nature, the music keeps progressing and they even manage to throw in a few surprises every now and then, which makes for a fascinating experience. You can listen to one of the massive songs on Bandcamp and on YouTube .

MORBID EVILS  - “SUPERNATURALS” 
17.6.2022News Morbid EvilsGenre - Doom Metal / Sludge Metal 
Release Date - August 19th, 2022
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Primitive Man, Jupiterian, 71TonMan, Winter, Thou, Conan, Grief, Warcrab
Helmed by the Rotten Sound vocalist Keijo Niinimaa, Finnish band Morbid Evils give us their own dark, twisted and unbearably heavy interpretation of death/doom/sludge metal music which is both awe-inspiring and riveting. They trudge ponderously as if through a toxic, miasmic swamp, giving little idea as to where they’re headed, and then suddenly pick up speed and lash out or resort to earth-trembling heaving parts as a way of culminating their suspenseful journey spread out over four monolithic songs. Each one brings out different aspects of the curious personality, and it only helps in deciphering this phantasmagorical beast. Through rapid evolution, this entity has only grown stronger with each album, imbibing a plethora of human emotions to make their expression even more impactful without cutting down on its girth. A fascinating album devoid of any weaknesses, ‘Supernaturals’ is not only the band’s landmark release but it also takes the sound ahead for the style as a whole.

GANGS OF OLD LADIES – “RAPED BY GHOSTS”

17.6.2022News GANGS OF OLD LADIESThe extreme metal madness continues with Gangs of Old Ladies coming back to the table with their new single "Raped by Ghosts". Like all of the band's tracks, this one downloads free from their Facebook page with a matching horror novella.
Based on the story of a vile character whose lusts and tastes for dark sexual gratification see him acquiring a fabled bracelet that is rumored to hold the souls of various deviants and despicable sexual rogues including the famed "Marquis De Sade" bound within; but he unwittingly gets more than he bargained for and it quickly becomes a twisted, tragic tale of remorse and regrets leading to an inevitable conclusion...

The band's long-time lead guitarist David Andersson of Soilwork was unavailable for this track due to scheduling conflicts so the band reached out to a longtime friend the legendary Joe Haley from Psycroptic!
Haley laid down an absolutely mind-blowing mixture of leads and counter-rhythms; creating a true metal masterpiece in his wake.
With the ghostly context of the track, the band also had their acquaintance Clemens Wijers from black metal masters Carach Angren write and perform the stunning and ghoulish little intro that kicks off the track.
Time changes, vocal twists and amazing guitar work from both Joe Haley and main songwriter Simon Unknown make this an incredibly unique track and prove the band is in a constant state of flux that keeps fans coming back for more slices of new metal flavors.

Check out the wicked music clip! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fybOUiLuzg
This is one track you definitely have to check out.
Vocalist and author Jekyll Jones state: " This opportunity to work with Joe just showed the versatility and unique sound we have to offer.
As a huge fan of contrast I think this track is amazing and it is only just the beginning as we plan on bringing our original stylings to the music world for years to come!"

Paul Murphy from Utopia Records says "HEAVIER THAN DEMON SHIT AND TWICE AS TASTY!!!"
The band have already commenced work on their next single with David Andersson already laying guitars and the decision was made for a permanent lead contrast with infamous whammy solo madman Rick Rozz (ex Death/massacre) joining the band full-time as a second guitarist!


SHURIKEN CADAVERIC ENTWINEMENT – “CONSTRUCTING THE CATACLYSM”

17.6.2022 News Shuriken Cadaveric EntwinementLabel: Comatose Music
Release Date: August 5th 2022
Genre: Death Metal
For fans of: Morbid Angel | Deicide | Ripping Corpse | Dim Mak
They pour through the demon gate, the hungry ghosts and the bringers of plague; the Oni with their horns and tusks and skin the colour of sickness. Driven on by Enma, Lord of Hell, they come like an endless tide, whipped into a frothing fury by their colossal hunger for human flesh. Yet all that awaits them is the steel of our katanas, the wicked blades of our naginatas, our resplendent banners of war and a code of honour stronger than death...
Drawing on the complex history and vibrant mythology of the samurai, the powerful warrior caste of feudal Japan, Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement have carved out their own kingdom of intense and characterful death metal. It’s been nearly a decade since multi-instrumentalist Jordan Varela (Lust Of Decay) and vocalist Jay Barnes (Cesspool Of Vermin) unveiled their second album, Resuscitating The Vile and it seemed that the demonic duo may have fallen on their swords, consigning Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement to the dust of ages. However the silence has now been irrevocably shattered as third album, Constructing The Cataclysm tears its way from the creative womb! Featuring eight songs of fiercely implacable death metal, bristling with riffs like lethal weapons and Barnes’ unmistakeable devilish growls and howls, this album takes Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement to new levels of intensity and sheer class. From the opening war cry of ‘Insurrection Of The Diabolical’, through the malicious torments of ‘Insidious Spiritual Incarceration’ to the classic death metal magnificence of the climactic title track, Constructing The Cataclysm is a towering monolith of pure death metal, the perfect representation of Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement’s sound and approach. Domineering drumming, powerful melodies and classic yet inventive riffing bring a battlefield of gods, demons and legends to vivid, visceral, screaming life!
It may have been a long time coming, but Constructing The Cataclysm sees Varela and Barnes return stronger than ever before. When Comatose Music unleash this beast of war on August 5th there will be no denying the overwhelming power and potency of Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement. Recorded at Audio Helm Studios with Mike Clevenger, Constructing The Cataclysm possesses an incendiary sound that combines clarity of delivery with a snarling, venomous power. The final touch of magic has been applied by Andreas Christanetoff of Armaada Art (Aborted, Kraanium, NecroticGoreBeast etc) with some stunning samurai cover art. Armoured once more in the scales of the serpent god of war, Shuriken Cadaveric Entwinement have returned and the cataclysm is nigh!

Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide,we’re honored to welcome into the family Greek black/death metal legion ANTICREATION for whom we’ve prepared the release of their immense debut album, “FROM THE DUST OF EMBERS", in collaboration with Nuclear Winter Records, also from Greece.

17.6.2022News ANTICREATIONA song from the work has been unveiled by Decibel Magazine via an official music video premiere for the title track which you can find here https://www.decibelmagazine.com/2022/06/13/video-premiere-anticreation-from-the-dust-of-embers/, with the prized metal magazine stating that “If you’re in the mood for unrelenting brutality mixed with abysmal black metal, Anticreation are just the ticket” and that “The combination of slamming death riffs and black metal flavor and depth has a mesmerizing effect on the listener.“
On “From the Dust of Embers" Anticreation emerge from the abysses of hell with a thirty-four minute aural declaration of war toward the insignificance of all terrain things. Monstrous walls of low end dissonance churn and fume like sprawling hellfires, while dark ambient and ritualistic debris metastasizes around the telluric instrumental sections creating a grandiose and enveloping hellscape shrouded in darkness and death. No newcomers to their scene, the cryptic duo of Necro and Noctus who form the core of Anticreation have been sailing the black seas of Greece's most uncompromising underground for literal decades, with Necro in particular having spent the last twenty years forging hellbent steel in such miscreant greek black metal entities as Burial hordes, Enshadowed, and Merciless Crucifixion, among others. Anticreation is a vessel unto fusing Necro's and Noctus' long running expertise in black metal and the duo's interest and fascination in the bleakest and most otherworldly forms of dark death metal, namely that one conceived in various waves by bastions of the genre like Immolation, Portal, Pseudogod and Teitanblood, resulting in their debut offering "From the Dust of Embers", an imposing dark death metal best levitating with an immense aura of complete ruin and inevitability
“From the Dust of Embers" will be released July 8 2022 on LP, CD, MC, and digital formats in collaboration with Nuclear Winter Records handling the European release.
Thank you as always for your time and attention given to our releases. Sincerely, Sentient Ruin

Comatose Music Present :
Acts Of Sadistic Cruelty! 4 Battalions Of Brutal Death Metal
KILL EVERYTHING / NECROTICGOREBEAST / VIRULENT EXCISION / GOREPOT –“ACTS OF SADISTIC CRUELTY”
17.6.2022News ACTS OF SADISTIC CRUELTYLabel: Comatose Music
Release Date: August 19th 2022

Genre: Brutal Death Metal
For fans of: Devourment | Internal Bleeding | Disavowed | Mortician

In the sewers and cellars, far from the light, the dark, forgotten tunnels have been claimed by new rulers. Hunters and haunters, bestial predators that exist on the edge of urban myth and nightmare, they wade through excrement and death as they stalk their hellish kingdoms. They rule the shadows from thrones of bone, chewing on filth and feasting on rot, warped gods of brutish power and explosive violence. As untouched by morality as the rays of the sun they are the lords of the underworld, kings of the slithering, the twisted and the lost...
Four rabid attacks, four blows of the hammer...one colossal onslaught of brutal death! Comatose Music have brought together four imposing monsters from the furthest extremes of death metal to create Acts Of Sadistic Cruelty – a twelve track split album of unprecedented savagery and hideous intent.
First strike! From Texas, Kill Everything deliver three tracks of grotesque, relentless bludgeoning. Hostile, inhuman and punishing, these songs are the very definition of bestial brutality.
Disembowelling thrust! The Quebecois killing machine NecroticGoreBeast attack with massive slabs of riff power, delivered with wicked precision and unfathomable force. Technical brilliance and calculated song craft take their three songs to the next level of intensity.
Skull shattering impact! Chicago’s Virulent Excision combine thick, bloody riffs and domineering vocals, injecting them with violent velocity and daubing them in pure hate.
Final fatal cut! Featuring the diseased vocal exhortations of the legendary Larry Wang, Taiwanese lunatics Gorepot add insane humour to their thudding sonic detonations and dirty, addictive riffs. Utterly irreverent and brutal to the bone!

Housed in the awesome artwork of Aziz Blcxstry, which references previous album covers from all the bands involved in its montage of madness, Acts Of Sadistic Cruelty will be unleashed by Comatose Music on August 19th. This is an essential release for all devoted followers of brutal death metal, all those addicted to the ultimate expression of extremity and sheer bloody heaviness. Four distinct styles of brutality slug it out in a no-holds-barred fight to the death – a feast of blood, gore and disgust!

Wie jede Band haben auch AERODYNE ihre eigenen Geschichten über Songs, die ihnen im Schlaf eingefallen sind, über alptraumhafte Produktionen und Kämpfe, um den perfekten Sound zu finden, und von wundersamen Vorstellungen von Titeln.
Insofern ist dieses Album nichts Besonderes. Wie das Leben selbst ist es problematisch. Zu spät trotz der unzähligen Stunden, die investiert wurden. Konstanter Krieg mit wenigen Kompromissen wegen der gemeinsamen Leidenschaft. Einige haben nicht überlebt – ein Bassist ging verloren. Das ist eine Opferrate von 20 %. Während "Damnation" (2019) seine dunklen Wendungen hatte, blieb es dennoch jugendlich rebellisch. Aber "THE LAST DAYS OF SODOM" will nicht nett mit dir spielen. Es will dich schlagen, dich anknurren, sich die Kleider vom Leib reißen, um Dir zu zeigen, wie hässlich es wirklich ist. Jeder Song handelt von Dingen, die auseinanderfallen: Zusammenbruch. Lügen. Ruinen. Es gibt keinen Glamour, nur Wut und Nihilismus. Das Album ist heavier und zugleich schneller. Noch mehr Apathie, noch mehr Emotionen. Es ist ein Chaos... doch genau so sind AERODYNE!

SERPENTS IN PARADISE – “TEMPTATION”

12.6.2022News SERPENTS IN PARADISEIf there is one positive thing to take away from the past 2 years of Corona Pandemie, it is that countless musicians and bands have used the involuntary time off to put together new albums or even new projects. This is also the case with Serpents In Paradise. Guitarist Tobias just dedicate himself more to something that had been neglected in the years before: solid hard rock. More blues, more dirt and more guitar heroes (Slash, Page, Young) from his youth.
In Matthias Lüönd and Jason-Steve Mageney, the right comrades-in-arms were quickly found for an ambitious project. Since it was not possible to find a suitable singer in the immediate vicinity, the idea of implementing the whole thing with the help of various guest singers matured. In the end, Gianni Pontillo (Victory), Stu Block (ex-Iced Earth), Herbie Langhans (Firewind, Avantasia), Mark Fox (Shakra) and Alex Kühner (High Tide), a whole host of singing heroes, got enthusiastic about the project, the idea and, last but not least, the songs and contributed their part to this album.
The result is a gripping, incredibly mature hard rock album. Down-to-earth, solid and yet with that certain something that makes Serpents In Paradise stand out from the crowd.

12.6.2022News Amongst the Ashes Finnish-based AMONGST THE ASHES has released new EP named "THE FABRICATED MONOLITH", featuring cinematic and epic atmosphere, an array of different vocals styles, and fast-paced riffs. Persian Setar, a type of lute used in Persian traditional music, highlights the song with its unique sound that's very rarely heard in extreme metal music.

Listen to "The Fabricated Monolith": https://push.fm/fl/amongsttheashes-fabricatedmonolith
Amongst the Ashes was established in 2018 as the solo project of Aelian Hallaji who has been a long-time musician/songwriter in Iranian metal scene. The band’s music is mostly based on combination of fast-paced heavy riffs and eerie middle eastern themes as a background for Hallaji’s metaphorically pleading words. The first Single “Blood Red Hands” was released in August 2020, followed by “Agonizing Awakening” EP in September as a one-man band, which got superb feedback and was featured on many radio shows, worldwide. Since early 2021, Aelian has moved to Finland and invited very talented musicians from Tampere, to cooperate. This EP will introduce the band’s new chapter and feature familiar elements from the earlier releases coupled with all the more aggressive touch and world-class production quality.
Music: Aelian Hallaji, Mikko Niskanen, Antti Ohtonen, Heikki Mäki, Matias Rokio, Aleksanteri Kuosa

A couple of months after releasing the digital single "RITE OF PASSAGE"WOODEN MAW - solo experimental metal project from the French musician Eliott Raveau (Carbonic Fields, Sekhmet, Ruska, Oniromancer...) - just shared another glimpse from its work with a cover of the hit "Back In Black" from AC/DC, available right now on https://woodenmaw.bandcamp.com/track/back-in-black-ac-dc-cover

12.6.2022 News Wooden MawFor fans of : Aborted, Benighted, Cattle Decapitation, Nails, Rotten Sound...
....For the record..
Wooden Maw is a project founded in september, 2020 by Eliott Raveau, a metal musician from Normandy, France and already involved into several band and projects in the French scene.
Initially aimed at being a canvas for practicing songwriting and mixing, the project progressively took a different shape with a whole part of it revolving around collaborating : indeed musicians are invited to take part on certain songs, which is a good way to initiate interaction between passionate people, and helps saturated vocalists who don't all have had the chance to be featured on records to have on of their performances immortalized. 
Right now the project is separated in to sides which both have a compilation associated to them : "Collabs" which is for songs with guests, and "Independent Songs" gathering solo tracks As for the project's musical style, although making small changes here and there to fit the guests' taste, it revolves mostly around a rythmic metal tuned low, sounding halfway between Deathcore, Djent and Grindcore.
Among the different projects in which Eliott takes part, Wooden Maw is the most violent and spontaneous one Currently no shows are planned, but the idea to perform in front of an audience still is a source of motivation so never say 'never'

Thrown to the Abyss was written, performed, recorded, and mixed by Justin Vølus, with mastering by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studio. Cover art by Dede Suhita.
Behold the Blackened Death Metal onslaught!
"Vølus manages to present, in totality, something that is truly an excellent listen, never getting boring, never relenting into lulls and slow melodies. It’s 100% hellish from start to finish, ending after only 8 tracks. Yet, it never feels like it goes on too long, never seems like it becomes uninteresting, most likely a representation of the dissonance never leaving the listener with repeatable tunes to remember. It all just seems to wash over you, over and over and over. Noisy, dissonant, dreadful in its thematic elements, continuously-brilliant, and faithfully-conveying of Justin Vølus’ artistic merit with ease, it might be one of the better blackened death albums of 2022." [5/5] - Metal Epidemic

Last month, THIRTEEN GOATS stampeded out of Canada and onto the global metal scene with the hyperkinetic, politically-charged “RETURN TO RUIN”. That single (from their upcoming debut record, “SERVANTS OF THE OUTER DARK”) was accompanied by an animated video (can view below) that ended with a giant sunflower bursting out of Vladimir Putin’s skull—a deliberately unsubtle nod to the band’s Eastern European roots and aggressive anti-imperialist sensibilities.

12.6.2022News Thirteen GoatsThe record’s newest single, “Unholy Mass”, takes the subgenre-hopping extreme metal maniacs in a different direction, momentarily setting politics aside to mount a blackened broadside against organized religion. Guitarist/vocalist Graham K. Miles explains in detail:
“This was the first song Rob [Fitz-Gerald, guitars/vocals] and I wrote together. He came up with almost all the riffs, and I wrote the lyrics, which tell the story of a priest determined to cleanse the world of sinners through gruesome murder. It’s about the hypocrisy of people who preach peace and love but enforce their values through violence. I also managed to sneak a Cryptopsy reference into the chorus—see if you can pick it out!”
The music itself combines sinister, slithering guitars with bone-breaking blast beats and some of the album’s most vicious vocals. According to Miles, “weird shit” happened while he was recording his takes—the studio lights kept flickering, and the temperature dropped noticeably. “I’m not superstitious,” he says, “but it felt spooky—like I wasn’t alone in there. And when I listened to the final tracks, they sounded a lot more evil than they had while I was doing them. So who knows?”, he grins. “Maybe I had a little help from beyond.”
The single was written in a single session during the introductory jam between Miles and Fitz-Gerald, who are the band’s core songwriting duo. It cemented their friendship and got Thirteen Goats off the ground. “Servants of the Outer Dark” is nine tracks of cathartic and multi-layered metal ranging from serious personal topics like suicide awareness on “Constant Torment” to balls-out camp on the hilariously literal “Vacuum-Induced Head Explosion”.
A hybrid of Florida death metal, UK grindcore, and classic 80s thrash, Thirteen Goats successfully combine their influences into something greater than the sum of their parts. They deliver an impressive force of blast beats, guitar solos, and grown men yelling ‘BLERGH’ alongside big, catchy hooks and choruses—maintaining the classic formula enough to impress old-school fans while keeping it fresh and accessible for newcomers.
The band is just getting started, but they have an arsenal of material waiting in the wings. They are a band to watch, especially by fans of Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, and Death.
The single “Unholy Mass” can be heard via its premiere on Bravewords here https://bravewords.com/news/exclusive-vancouvers-thirteen-goats-premieres-unholy-mass-lyric-video
The album “Servants of the Outer Dark” will be served up on July 1, 2022.

About:
Eclectic, over-the-top, and just a little weird, THIRTEEN GOATS takes cues from some of extreme metal's most infamous acts (Death, Carcass, Cannibal Corpse) to create a tongue-in-cheek blend of different genre hallmarks that's as hooky as it is heavy. This ain't your dad's death metal, but we kept the best parts . Horns up!

CHAOS ENGINE RESEARCH - "FACES"

Second full-length studio album by Polish Groove/Death Metal band.
The second release is also a conceptual album, but unlike the debut, compositions do not form a chronological story, but are "novellas" connected by common ground.  Each track describes one of the characters - the titled "faces" are the ghosts of the past and memories, which are connected by the fact that they exerted a great influence on Chaos Engine Research members.
This time, the songs are more compact in their form, and the whole record is more aggressive and devoid of melodic vocal parts. This makes "Faces" a more "raw" album, veering towards Death Metal territory. It's still Groove Metal, but certainly more brutal and dark than the debut was.
Soundwise, it's definitely more of a guitar album. A lot of effort was put into the arrangement and preparation of vocal lines, so that the message is understandable for the listeners, even when the vocals operate in the registers of growl and scream.

“Faces” can be recommended for fans of Groove Metal bands such Pantera, Sepultura, Machine Head or Slipknot, but also Death Metal fans. In general, all fans of the heavier sounds should be satisfied.
“Faces” was recorded and mixed by Przemyslaw Wejmann in Perlazza Studio. The production is a cooperation of Przemek and the band. Mastering was done in Hertz Studio by Wojciech Wiesławski.

Biography
Chaos Engine Research was founded in 2007 in Częstochowa, Poland. Initial line-up was: Marcin “Muzz” Grobelak (guitar), Krzysiek Dworak (guitar), Ivo Orleański (drums) and Mateusz Trzcinski (bass).
In 2008, Darek “Darrior” Januszewski (vocal) has joined, and a year later Jacek “Młody” Adamczyk (vocal) and Jacek Czekaj (who replaced Mateusz) were also on-board. In this configuration, Chaos Engine wrote their debut album called “The Legend Written By An Anonymous Spirit Of Silence”. Material was recorded, mixed and produced by Przemek “Perla” Wejmann at Perlazaa Studio, and mastered by Tue Madsen in Antfarm Studio, between 2011 and 2012. Once the recordings were finalized, the band focused on finding a publisher.
“The Legend” was released in September 2014, simultaneously by the Metal Scrap Records and Mighty Music labels. After The Legend Promo Tour in mid 2015, the band parted ways with Ivo, and the drummer position was taken by Matusz Królica.
In September 2016, “Młody” left the band. For a year and a half, CER searched for a replacement, making attempts to work with several vocalists (including Kamil Szafran from UDS) – eventually decided to continue with Darrior as the sole frontman in 2018.
Recording sessions for the second album called “Faces” took place from August to October 2019. Once again, the band decided to record in Perlazza Studio, co-producing the album with Przemek Wejman. Mastering was done in Hertz Studio by Wojciech Wiesławski.
The band wanted to release “Faces” in autumn of 2020 or at the beginning of 2021, however Covid’s era spoiled the band’s plans, due to touring bans. Finally, in summer 2022 the album was released by Metal Scrap Records.

There are tons of grind bands trying to sound like so and so band but Ernia here are trying to forge their own sound. Their music is meticulously written, stringing together bits from various styles in a way that only they can pull it off. It doesn't hurt that they have two members of Wormed in their ranks. Despite their acerbic nature, the songs are varied and each one of them wonderfully showcases a different aspect of the band's multifaceted sound. No Clean Singing premiered a fresh albeit aggressive track at https://www.nocleansinging.com/2022/04/29/an-ncs-premiere-ernia-helium-3/
"the band’s mad maneuvers create sensations of tension, confusion, derangement, despondency, peculiar wonder, and a kind of futuristic atmosphere. The unexpected icing on the cake is that this whirligig of experiences turns out to be catchy"
ERNIA  - “HOW TO DEAL WITH LIFE AND FAIL “
12.6.2022News ErniaGenre - Death Metal / Grindcore

Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Pig Destroyer, Gridlink,  Fuck the Facts, Full of Hell, Rotten Sound, Brutal Truth, Wormrot, Contrastic, Bathtub Shitter
With two members of Wormed in their lineup, Spanish grindcore band Ernia have managed to perfect the sound on their sophomore album which is both refreshing and riveting. The music is just as colourful as their artwork, full of intricate bits and with every song offering something different without abandoning the core sound. There is much to delve into here and every listen only enriches your understanding of their delightfully spastic music. To that extent, it’s almost like a technical album with the difference being that their momentum remains unabated while they throw up so much at you, and being so diverse, it only ends up being an utterly fascinating experience which is extremely rare in a genre largely known for its one-dimensional cathartic expression. The songs are incredibly structured, full of unpredictable twists and turns, buildups and breakdowns, and it never seems like a chore to sit through it because everything flows remarkably well and it’s even so goddamn catchy. Indeed, Ernia have crafted a masterful album that offers so much and yet retains its spunk, vivacity and of course, the skull-splintering intensity essential for the style.

OUR DYING WORLD’S
drummer Tom Tierney attended a small boarding school in New York state, which has gained notoriety after a disproportionate number of former students choose to end their lives, and the atrocities, torment, and abuse that took place at the school have come to light. These horrors have been channeled into the single “SURVIVOR”, which is haunting and diverse.
The song starts with clips of a joyful choral arrangement of Tierney’s high school choir before now-deceased student Jon Martin Crawford echoes his testimony in the Supreme Court. This is followed by heavy and slow riffs, acoustic and clean vocal breaks, anguished howls, and desperate pleas of a boy who was once left in the woods at a school filled with cultists and now shoulders the pain of feeling like there’s something wrong that no one will ever understand. The band comments:
“Survivor was one of those songs that we threw into the single list to really bring diversity to the two standalones before we released the record. We want to give the listener both sides of the spectrum and then let your imagination take you to what you think you’ll hear next. Aside from it being a very deep and personal song, Tom thought it might be best that the song gets its own time to stand alone so that the alumni would get to see it more for how it was written as a personal feeling and effort to work through some major issues, and not just as another song on an album that’s lumped in with some metal songs. Tom put a lot of work into this and wanted certain people to know that it was not just another topic that went into a record; there are certain people we hope it brings some closure too about events that aren’t widely discussed.”
Throughout the song, the listener can hear the agony that Tierney conveys hearing that his fellow alumni are slowly dying off, and with everything he has in him he dedicates this song to them. Through the solos, the listener can almost feel the weeps and cries in his notes and bends.
“Survivor” is heavy, both musically and in melancholia. It is recommended listening for fans of Lamb Of God, Wintersun, and Children of Bodom.

About:
Over the last few years, Los Angeles’s Our Dying World has gone through a tremendous evolution of sound from thrashy death metal of their debut EP Expedition to the symphonic and melodic keyboard-oriented stylings of bands like Children Of Bodom, Nightwish, and Dimmu Borgir.
Formed in 2018 by drummer/guitarist Tom Tierney (ex-Whiplash), the group has played shows all over the USA in their short time together, bringing their sound from the fabled Sunset Strip in Hollywood to the New Jersey Metalfest where they opened for Metal Mike of Halford.
One thing is clear from the young band as they prepare for the release of their second release; they’ve come to stir the standards that hold the metal scene and redefine them.

News from INNER DECAY (Death Metal, USA) and MORTTICIA (Heavy Metal, Brazil)

INNER DECAY released their second studio album, ENTER THE VOID . Chicago, Illinois based Death Metal purveyors INNER DECAY's second full-length album "Enter the Void" is out now in via Pest Records on jewel-case CD version and is available for play / order here:
https://pestrecords.bandcamp.com/album/inner-decay-enter-the-void
http://pestrecords.limitedrun.com/products/725753-inner-decay-enter-the-void

Here’s what the band commented on it:
“It’s been a challenging couple of years. The pandemic hit the world hard and things came to a major slow down, we even had a member who recorded his parts at home while he had Covid, but we kept pushing and made it through as a band. With the hardship of the pandemic slowly moving behind us, we’re very proud to announce the result of our hard work which is our upcoming album “Enter the Void”.
Our sophomore album is heavier and with an improved sound compared to our debut “Souls of War”, but still with a solid dose of epic melodies and catchiness. We’re coming back with the new lineup and with it comes a fresh quality. Our foundation is still the same with Tom as the main songwriter and Silvestre giving a punishing performance with his one-of-a-kind brutal vocal style.
Though our new additions made a big difference for the band’s music; Alfred with his powerful bass lines and song writing prowess that added new dimensions for the band’s songs, Dave with his pulverizing drum beats that set the feeling and rhythm perfectly, and Aaron who worked side by side with Tom going back and forth between shredding and melodic guitar solos. We are excited to release this album, and can’t wait to share it with the world.”
Inner Decay was formed in 2014 by guitarist Tomasz. Inner Decay’s style roots in Death Metal, combining elements of Melodic Death Metal, catchy upbeat Thrash riffs and crushing Brutal Death Metal vocals. This band draws its inspiration from the founders of Death Metal such as Death, Sepultura, Jungle Rot, Vader, Dying Fetus, Deicide, Obituary, Carcass and Morbid Angel.
Despite a few line up changes, Inner Decay has kept the same style and feel from day one thanks to Tom’s killer writing style and Silvester’s brutal vocals. This band played number of shows across Midwest states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana Kentucky and remains very active in Chicago metal scene.
During then 2020-2021 pandemic, Inner Decay had written and recorded their follow up album that is titled “Enter the Void”.

Brazilian Heavy Metallers MORTTICIA release new official video, LIMIAR. Brazilian Progressive Heavy Metal quintet MORTTICIA reveal their new official video for "Limiar", the title track taken off the "A Light In The Black" EP. "Limiar" is directed by Gabriel Maciel and produced by Victor Mayer at Proteu Films.
Play the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73ZNLkY8YfQ
In collaboration with Pest Records MORTTICIA are set to re-release the band's debut EP "A Light In The Black" on CD format this July 15th (initial release date had to be postponed because of an error at the pressing plant).
Pre-orders are open here:
https://pestrecords.bandcamp.com/album/mortticia-a-light-in-the-black
http://pestrecords.limitedrun.com/products/725754-mortticia-a-light-in-the-black

Here’s what the band had to say about "A Light In The Black"
"We were looking to sound more professional in "A Light In The Black", so we did some intense pre-production work. We spent a lot of time in the studio going through several takes and after that we spent a lot of time producing and mixing it. In the end this helped us elevate the quality level of our songs. We re-recorded some of our demo songs because we felt that these compositions were too good not to get new versions and this helped us understand the real potential they had. We think the result speaks for itself!
In this album we base our sound in the classic ‘heavy metal’ style established in the 80’s (Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Queensryche, Black Sabbath), but we incorporate more modern influences and elements from progressive rock/metal bands. Things like tempo changes, synthesizers, orchestration, also the bass solos are a signature of the band. Most of our lyrics seek to explore social, philosophical or political messages with a tales or stories so that the narrative illustrates the argument or moral of the story.
For example, in ‘Hear My Words‘ we about a people’s insurrection, whereas they rebel against their lord in order to build their own alternative society instead of fighting his unjust war. Meanwhile in ‘Limiar‘, the lyrics describe a pivotal moment of change for an individual. They’re frustrated with the emptiness of their life and a materialistic view of the world. The chorus repeats: ‘everything is for sale’. Rather than ending it on a bad note, the message we try to send is that this is the time to build something new and finally say ‘but I’m not for sale’."

Ein Konzept, das jahrelang auf seine Entstehung wartete, erblickte URFERD Ende 2020 offiziell das Licht der Welt.
Das erste Album "RESAN" wird 2022 auf BLACK LODGE RECORDS erscheinen und ist eine musikalische Odyssee im wörtlichen und übertragenen Sinne. Das Album nimmt den Hörer mit auf eine Reise durch dunkle und uralte nordische Wälder, in denen Streit und Entbehrungen unsere Schritte begleiten, in denen aber auch die Schönheit und Weite der feierlichen nordischen Landschaft bestehen bleibt und durchdringt. Von der Darstellung eines ruhigen Morgengrauens zu Beginn des Albums bis hin zu einer Feuerstelle bei Einbruch der Dunkelheit im Schlusstrack, durchquert RESAN in seinen acht Liedern eine Vielzahl von fesselnden musikalischen Landschaften und Themen. URFERD bedeutet den Beginn eines neuen und zusätzlichen musikalischen Kapitels für seinen Gründer und einziges Mitglied, Daniel Beckman (TWILIGHT FORCE, AGES), und bringt eine frische neue Perspektive in das Genre, indem es die Grenzen der dunklen, atmosphärischen Folkmusik herausfordert.

TYRANNOS – “SPEARS OF THE ATEN”

12.6.2022News TyrannosLabel: Independent Release
Release Date: June 21st 2022
Genre: Death Metal
For fans of: Morbid Angel | Nile | Mithras| Pestilence
My youth was lost in the dust and shadows of the Foundation’s labyrinthine libraries. A thousand times a thousand ancient pages turned as candles guttered down to nothing. From the accessible tales and superstitions to the forbidden books of knowledge, I consumed them all as the years passed. Armed with secrets I finally set out into the world and the unseen worlds within the world. I have watched the waves at Innsmouth, seen the fires upon the peak of Sentinel Hill and walked the dreaming streets of Ib. And now I speak his names into the darkness, whisper them into the night with an old man’s cracked and failing fragile voice. Before the end I will see him, know him and lose myself forever...
Marching through the wreckage of history, weaving their way through the nightmares of the mad come Tyrannos, their music alive with horrors and steeped in mystery. With insidious riffs that slither beneath your perceptions and drums that echo the carnage of centuries of warfare, these songs that know no boundaries coalesce to form Spears Of The Aten – an EP of expansive, visionary death metal. First emerging in 2017 with the Beneath The Pharaonic Necropolis demo, Tyrannos have now driven their music on mercilessly into ever more dangerous and challenging territories. The demo’s title track has been joined by three incredible new monuments to the power of extreme music and the outer reaches of the imagination. Featuring the gloriously inhuman drumming of Scott Fuller of Morbid Angel and a transcendent guest guitar solo from Morean of Alkaloid and Dark Fortress, the strides that Tyrannos have taken with Spears Of Aten are gargantuan. From the ritualistic ‘The Tyrant’s Bane’ to the many layered grandeur of ‘Sun Disc Cataclysm’ Spears Of The Aten is a magnificent creation of sonic sorcery and madness.
Mixed and mastered by Damian Herring (Blood Incantation, Horrendous, Father Befouled etc) at Subterranean Watchtower Studios, Spears Of The Aten possesses a sound that combines sheer power with clarity and a broad palette of textures. Visually, Tyrannos selected the talents of Adrian Baxter (Alunah, Paradise Lost, VI etc) to invoke the images that adorn the cover of the EP. Every aspect of Spears Of The Aten has been meticulously realised, making it one of the most enthralling and impressive death metal releases you will hear this year. Be ready for 21st June when the gates will open and Tyrannos will ride forth, armed with the Spears Of The Aten.

They are a new arrangement of three seasoned musicians including drummer Gledson Gonçalves; guitarist/vocalist Adriano Ribeiro (Athemon) and bassist Tom MacLean (Athemon, ex-Haken). Together they have but one mission, to bring the heaviest music they can muster and melt the faces off fans everywhere at live performances and on record. They are excited to be releasing their debut self-titled album this year to fully show the metal world what they are made of and what they can bring to the scene.
Brutta has a second single out now entitled “DEVON” where the listener is transported inside the mind of a sociopathic individual who is locked up in the confines of Devon, a prison made for violent offenders. This prisoner can’t wait to escape to continue pursuing his victims. The band explains further:
“Starting with a deliberate expression of the desire to kill, our character murmurs a creepy, evil, scary melody. Pleased by the voices in his head, a prisoner to his own sick mind, he unleashes the desire to hurt and provoke horror. The instrumental is filled with dark melodies causing a very obscure sentiment. With a very strong chorus, the song transforms into a memorable experience of assault and battery, as in the end, our prisoner seems to jailbreak.”
“Devon” is the seventh of eight tracks, each one more pummeling and unforgiving than the last. They span themes such as religion and disturbed individuals, all with blast beats, brutal gutturals, and death metal riffs. They take all of their influences and wind them together into something daring, mysterious, and unforgettable. They are recommended listening for those with an interest in Bloodbath, Dark Funeral, and Morbid Angel.
The single “Devon” is being premiered via NoCleanSinging https://www.nocleansinging.com/2022/06/03/an-ncs-premiere-brutta-devon/
The album will be released on June 17th, 2022

About:
After working for Athemon (Adriano Ribeiro (guitars, vocals) and Tom MacLean (ex-Haken) (bass)) as their session drummer, Gledson Gonçalves had the idea of creating another project with more extreme music. Recruiting Ribeiro (guitars, vocals) and MacLean (bass), both were very eager to dive headfirst into the aggressive sound Gonçalves had in mind. A few jams later and Brutta was officially formed as a studio project over two contents. Gonçalves and Ribeiro in Brazil and MacLean in the UK.
Brutta works collaboratively through every part of the process, first Ribeiro develops and assembles the riffs, to which Gonçalves adds drum parts. The final musical touches come in as MacLean weaves the bass riffs and then vocals are layered on top with lyrical themes coming from human behaviour, especially its darker angles.
As they plan to hit the stage in the near future, fans will be met with loads of energy and power during the set as Brutta releases their demons through strong performances, so the audience can do the same.
A modern and in-your-face version of obscure and wicked music, Brutta rises like brutal “Heavy Post Metal” their debut, self-titled album will be released on June 17, 2022.

CRISIS BENOIT have long been known in the Italian underground scene for their furious mix of punk, grindcore and old school death-black metal, combined with a lyrical concept closely linked to the world of wrestling. The new opus "El Culto De La Muerte", recorded and produced by Carlo Altobelli at the Toxic Basement Studio and graced by a cover by Ester Cardella, is undoubtedly the most complete and belligerent record of the young Italian act. This first full-length embraces the band’s extreme metal influences more frequently, without forgetting their infamous punk attitude.
The video of the album's lead single, the title track "El Culto De La Muerte", is now available

CRISIS BENOIT is a wrestling oriented theme grindcore/death metal band with a punk attitude.
Each member wears a scary luchador mask during live set. The project started in 2016 to combine extreme music with extreme wrestling and extreme horror. After a DIY demo "... just a RAW demo" [2017], Crisis Benoit released through Slaughterhouse Records three EPs: "Violence Era" [2018], "Icon of Violence" [2018], "Night of The Living Deathmatches" [2019]. The new album "El Culto De La Muerte" is going to be released soon.
CRISIS BENOIT is a natural born live act: from 2017 to 2020, the band performed several gigs in Italia, 9 European tours and one Mexican tour (June 2019).
CRISIS BENOIT wrote the entrance theme for the maltese pro wrestler Gianni Valletta (All Japan Pro Wrestling), for the Italian hardcore tag team Urban Guerrilla, and for the Mexican extreme wrestling federation Zona23.
Some of their songs are part of the soundtrack of “Kami No Virusu” a cult cyberpunk movie.
The band collaborated with “Rise Underground Pro Wrestling” for a music/deathmatch show in Leeds (UK).
The band members remain anonymous. According to Mexican lucha libre tradition they use pseudonyms: El Terrible (drum/vocals), El Canibal (guitars) and Aidu Ientus (bass).
They played in several bands such as Calvary, Ass Ache (the very first Italian grindcore act), Vatican City Syndrome, Lacerater, Repressione, Cerebral Extinction, Cinerarium, Orcrist, Brutal mutilation, Pagan place, Dismhal, Oracles, Morning Flame, 2MinutaDreka, Devoured by Vermin, A Place for Murder.

Post-punk sludge lords NEGATIVE 13 have released their newest single, titled "PAIN PRISM." The song comes from the band's forthcoming new album, MOURNING ASTERI.

Guitarist Edward Banchs comments on the song, "We love this song. Still in line with [the album's first single] 'My Scars Are Showing Again,' but it takes our sound to another level. This was the third song we wrote for the album and one that really pushed us creatively. Once we walked out of the practice space with this one we knew that we were ready to turn the corner on our past."
Stream "Pain Prism" now at Bandcamp and Spotify.
Nearly 20 years after the release of their self-titled debut, NEGATIVE 13 is set to return with Mourning Asteri. The long-awaited second full-length from these veterans of the Pittsburgh, PA scene bears the mark of a band born anew. Retaining the groove-laden and abrasive fury from their early work, Mourning Asteri takes the band’s infusion of stoner, sludge, and doomcore to a new level.
Mourning Asteri will be released on digital, CD, cassette, and vinyl formats on July 8. Pre-order the album now at negative13.bandcamp.com.

Formed in 1999, the Pittsburgh, PA quartet, NEGATIVE 13 (once known as Negative Theory), has continued to have a bit of an identity crisis. Describing their sound as post-punk infested stoner/sludge/doomcore, NEGATIVE 13 carries a curiosity that has allowed the band to reform after a hiatus with a wide-open palette of taste that reflects their artistic vision: interpret their brand of heavy metal however it is they feel fit. 
Originally disbanding in 2003 after releasing their self-titled debut, the members never stopped communicating the idea of returning to the stage after going their separate ways—reuniting, however, for several shows in 2008 and 2009. After years apart, 2021 proved to be the year that things fell back into place for NEGATIVE 13, with original members drummer Chip Reynolds, vocalist Scott Fisher, and guitarist Edward Banchs reforming with the intention of fulfilling their original vision—writing albums that would leave a footprint in the metal world. With the 2021 addition of bassist Mary Bielich, the band worked on completing their second album, Mourning Asteri, in late 2021, further elevating their sound to new heights.

Song streamen / runterladen: https://orcd.co/ant_mer
'Ant Mér Sjalfri Þér' ist ein Lied über unerfüllte Liebe, Verlangen und Sehnsucht, die uns verzehren. Es bezieht sich auf den Mythos, in dem Wōdan die Billingas magwia, die "Maid of the Fleeting Moment", suchte. In diesem Mythos werden Liebe und Verlangen denen entrissen, die sich verzehren ließen.
Außerdem veröffentlicht der Künstler ein neues Video, einen Kurzfilm, in dem die Lieder 'Ant Mér Sjalfri Þér' und 'Laþu' zu 'The Eternal Child' verschmelzen.
Jonas Lorentzen kommentiert: „Dies ist der gesamte Kunstfilm, wie wir ihn ursprünglich beabsichtigt hatten. Eine Geschichte über einen Mann, der versucht, seine eigenen Dämonen und Begierden in den Griff zu bekommen. Inspiriert von Mythologie und Jungianischen Archetypen.“
Nach zwei Jahren mit Heilung und als Schauspieler / Songwriter für den weltweiten Erfolg "The Northman" beschloss Jonas Lorentzen, sich auf seine eigene musikalische Ausdrucksform zu konzentrieren, basierend auf einer Neuinterpretation von Nordic Folk und spirituell getriebener Musik. Das Ergebnis ist NEBALA. Die Speerspitze ist Jonas Lorentzen. Unterstützt wird er von beeindruckenden Talenten wie Sebastian Gainsbourough (Vessel, "The Northman", Manchester Collective), Kjell Braaten (Wardruna, Origami Galaxy) und bei der konzeptionellen Entwicklung von Nichtmusikern wie Doktor Mathias Nordvig (Professor für Pre-christliche Religion an der CU Boulder) und der Philosophin Naina Gupta (Universität Kingston).
"Lustuz Laþu Wōþuz Alu" ist NEBALAs erstes Full-length-Album und wird als CD erhältlich sein (Digipak mit 12-seitigem Booklet sowie limitiertes schwarzes 2x12"-Vinyl im Gatefold).
Das Album lädt die Zuhörer:innen ein, in die altnordische Mythologie einzutauchen. "Nebala" bedeutet in Proto-Germanisch "Die Leere"; die Leere, aus der alles Leben entsteht. Sexualität ist die Essenz für alle Lebensformen. Durch dieses Album bringen NEBALA die Sexualität in einen Raum der Heiligkeit.
Der Titel "Lustuz Laþu Wōþuz Alu" spielt auf drei Stadien der Sexualität, Fruchtbarkeit und Liebe an:
Lustus: Der Wunsch, mit dem anderen zu verschmelzen und der romantische Idealismus von junger Liebe.
Lathu: Die dunkle Seite der Sexualität, der Streit der Liebenden, die unerwiderte Liebe, der Schmerz gebrochener Herzen und die hektische Frustration von nicht freigesetztem Verlangen.
Woduz Alu: Die Ekstase, die wahre Verschmelzung der Liebenden, die alle Objektivität auflöst und kosmische schöpferische Kraft entfacht.
Jonas Lorentzen verwendet traditionelle Rahmentrommeln, Leier, Tagelharpa, tibetische Klangschalen und Kehlkopfgesang und hat einen einzigartigen Indo-nordischen Sound entwickelt, der mit Zeit- und Klanglandschaften spielt, kulturelle Grenzen einreißt und dich zurück zum ursprünglichen Erlebnis der Musik selbst bringt.
Jonas kommentiert das Album:
"Wenn du dich von Verlangen und Lust mitreißen lässt, wirst du von dem verzehrt, was die alten germanischen Völker Laþu nannten. Der Vorfahre unseres modernen Wortes "lassen" suggeriert, dem natürlichen Verlangen und den Emotionen nachzugeben. Als Wōdan nach dem tiefsten Wissen des Kosmos strebte, musste er den Gefahren der tiefen Höhlen in Hnitbjörg trotzen und sich von Gunlaþu, der mächtigen Göttin der Unterwelt, mitreißen lassen."
Tracklist:
1. Alagabia
2. In Rauranī
3. Safijan
4. Skīnanārijaz
5. Laþu
6. Ant Mér Sjalfri Þér
7. Mannz Gamana
8. Surgō Sebō
9. Blotha Huñaga Bolañan Alu
'Laþu' ist ein harter, pochender Gesang der dunklen Wünsche der Seele. Es ist eine unheimliche Erkundung der Abgründe menschlicher Verderbtheit, aber man muss durch die Dunkelheit reisen, wenn man ans Licht kommen will. Der Track ist, wie der größte Teil des Albums, stark von Gesang und Schlagzeug geprägt, doch die alte nordische Geige, die Tagal Harpa, spielt mit ihrem harpyischen, kreischenden und eindringlichen Sound eine wichtige Rolle.
Das Video ist von Anfang bis Ende eine intensive, dunkle und magische Reise. Die norwegische Regisseurin Christina Amundsen und Jonas Lorentzen arbeiteten etwa ein halbes Jahr an dem Konzept und forschten über Mythologie und Jungianische Archetypen. In dieser Forschungsperiode gaben Dr. Matias Nordvig, Professor für vorchristliche Religion, und Regisseur Robert Eggers ("The Northman") einige wertvolle Ratschläge.
Der Film wurde im Oktober 2021 in der Ukraine mit der ukrainischen Produktionsfirma Konon Rocks gedreht und zeigt mehrere talentierte ukrainische Darsteller und Schauspieler. Die Choreographie wurde von Stephen Moynihan und Marie-Garbrielle Rotie gemacht, dem Team, das auch hinter der Choreographie von "The Northman" stand.

TEETHGRINDER
 reveal first single WORTHLESS from upcoming album DYSTOPIA
It took almost six years since the band’s last album Nihilism, but now TEETHGRINDER are back, angrier and more disillusioned than ever, the state of the world in general and two years of pandemic did their part.

1.6.2022 News TEETHGRINDERAs on the two predecessors Misanthropy (2015) and Nihilism (2016) - both also on LIFEFORCE RECORDS -TEETHGRINDER rely on a sound base between grindcore and death metal. Elements from crust, hardcore and black metal round out the stylistic spectrum of the Dutchmen. 
TEETHGRINDER from the Netherlands have always looked in disbelief at what mankind is doing to itself and the planet it lives on. Disgust, revulsion, suffering and despair - it's emotions like these that serve as the creative driving force behind the songwriting of the band from Zwolle.
The quartet packs all its rage and aggression into songs that reflect exactly that. The aptly titled "Dystopia" third album develops uncomfortably, radically and musically destructive. And it does so in a different yet agile, always threatening way. In view of song titles like ,Birthed Into Suffering', ,Disgrace', ,Blood Ritual', ,Our Failing Species' or ,Worthless' it can't be any other way. At the end of their third album, the group around former members of DrDoom and Greyline, active since 2013, draws a resigned conclusion with ,As I Believe The World To Be, So It Is' and the title track ,Dystopia’. 

The artwork of Dystopia was once again handled by the gold hands of Marald van Haasteren (Converge, Done, Kvelertak).

ILLUM ADORA – “MIASMA OF A DAMNED SOUL”

1.6.2022 News ILLUM ADORAGenre: Non Serviam  Black Metal
Label: Folter Records
Vertrieb: Alive

VÖ: 01.07.2022
German ILLUM ADORA return once again from the gutter of the underground to celebrate their filthy 2nd Wave Black Metal. 
Since seven years now the band releases at least one underground gem per year, after a full length traditionally an EP follows - and this time "Miasma of a Damned Soul" shows once again progress in songwriting and arrangements, even though the songs on the EP are rooted in old greek scene with influences of very old Rotting Christ, Zemial, Necromantia and Varathron – combined with their very own style that is called NON SERVIAM BLACK METAL – the German band unleashes another quality release that refuses to bow down to nowadays listening habits and still goes on with their very own special sound, not that sterile and same sounding one that everyone seems to produce these days. This is imperfect perfect, just like all the old 2nd Wave black metal bands that brought us closer to this music and ideology. If you cannot take the 2nd wave seriously anymore because it is old and rusty and not contemporary, you will not find comfort in Illum Adora. But if you still appreciate the musical direction once forged by the old BM Heroes from around the globe, you will definitely appreciate "Miasma of a Damned Soul".
ILLUM ADORA are still these two maniacal Scythe-wielders, Hurricane Hellfukker (founder, vocalist, ex-ZARATHUSTRA/CRUEL FORCE) and Mortüüm (drums and percussion, COUNTESS). Once again they worked with the same session-line up from the Netherlands and Italy that also recorded the previous album "Ophidian Kult" which was highly anticipated by the fans and sold in different pressings on MC, CD and LP since then. Vinyl reissues are already released or in the works for their earlier material.
Within almost 23 minutes you will get the most varied stuff that one can imagine, from the northern sounding opener that is raging like a beast from Hades, to the almost Death Metal like "Κέρβερος" which is a tribute to the Hellhound of the greek Netherworld himself: the three-headed Kerberos. This song will be premiering first with a nice lyric video in early May. "Miasma of a Damned Soul" is the third song on this EP and will be the official blasphemous video clip, that will be released on Youtube in Early June! Usually Cover versions are at the end of an album, but this time "Sleeping under Tartarus" (Zemial) is song number 4, because it fitted so much better and gives the EP are pretty great kick and ultimate just to end the EP with the epic "Ancient Nekromanteion", a tribute to Hecate and her necromantical sorcery
Recording line-up:
Hurricane Hellfukker - Vocals
Mortüüm - Drums/Percussion
Jörmundgand - Bass
Kommando Werewolf - Guitars
Nazxül - Guitars

1.6.2022 News ENCHANTMENT 2019 brachten Cosmic Key Creations die längst überfällige Vinyl-Version des 1994er "Dance The Marble Naked"-Albums der U.K.-Kult-Doomster ENCHANTMENT heraus. Dem folgten 2020 eine Neuauflage des Albums sowohl im CD- als auch im Kassettenformat via Transcending Records. Das erneute Interesse inspirierte die Band, sich neu zu formieren und ihr zweites Album fertigzustellen, das schon 1994/5 (!) geschrieben und komponiert, aber nie aufgenommen wurde. ENCHANTMENT gruben die alten Probebänder aus und beendeten das Album 25 Jahre nach dem Anfangsprozess. Dies ist das Album, das an ihr Debüt anknüpfen sollte. Die Songs sind eine spannende Zeitkapsel, die zurück in die Blütezeit des britischen Death / Doom-Metal der frühen Neunziger führt! Enchantment sind eine aus Großbritannien stammende Death / Doom-Metal-Band und wurden 1993 inmitten der britischen Death / Doom-Metal-Szene neben Paradise Lost, Anathema und My Dying Bride gegründet.
In diesem Jahr veröffentlichten sie das selbstfinanzierte DEMO "A TEAR FOR YOUNG ELOQUENCE" und unterschrieben anschließend beim Szene-Label Century Media Records, wo sie Anfang 1994 ihr Debütalbum "Dance The Marble Naked" herausbrachten. Die Band spielte mit vielen großartigen Extrem-Metal-Bands aus dieser Zeit, darunter Bolt Thrower, Anathema, Cancer und Cradle Of Filth, bevor sie sich 1995 leider auflöste. All dies geschah wie gesagt jedoch nicht, bevor sie bereits fast ein ganzes zweites Album geschrieben hatte, das jedoch nie aufgenommen wurde. Fast 25 Jahre später begann die Band mit der nicht beneidenswerten Aufgabe, alle originalen Demobänder und Songtexte zu sichten und jetzt endlich einzuspielen. Lasst Euch begeistern!

IAN ARKLEY -  “TWO”
1.6.2022 News Ian ArkleyLabel: Opa Loka Records
Release Date: June 1st 2022

Genre: Acoustic/Ambient
For fans of: Arcana | Dead Melodies | Wardruna | Jo Quail

Dark feathers and brittle bones, gliding through the roiling skies, beneath clouds that seethe, boil and tumble from shape to shape and form to form. Above lochs like silvered mirrors and slopes of shale, casting brief and flickering shadows upon the numberless leaves that dance in the gusts of wind that ripple the forest seas. Past the stones that have stood since men dragged them from their rest and on, on into the solitude of sunset’s fires. Black eyes capturing, recording and remembering, the scribe of history on the wing...
Some see the world differently to others. Some still see the reflections and shadows of an older time and of a time that never was. Some feel the resonance of magic in the drift of dust motes through golden light and the ensnaring grasp of thorn and bramble. And some can breathe those ghosts and visions in, then breathe them out once more as music that can captivate and transport those who stop to listen and bask in the chiming notes of nature and artifice conjoined. Ian Arkley’s second solo album, called simply Two, is a remarkable outpouring of organic sound and dreams. Recorded completely acoustically in Arfryn, south west Wales, over the final, winter months of 2021, Two is steeped in the natural beauty, the history and folklore of the region where it was brought to life. It’s medieval, it’s pagan, it’s shamanistic, magical and ambient; it draws from folk, neo-folk and tribal sounds and rhythms; it captures the pulse of the earth and the heartbeat of nature. Be it the combination of chaotic flurries of notes and stately undercurrents that form ‘From Forest From Sea’, the pulsing, warm depths of soil and water that let ‘Der Fund’ blossom, the shimmering visions of ‘Chrysalis’ or the stunning three-part journey of ‘Raven Valley’, no element of Two is anything but a glittering treasure. Transcending any form of genre, taking giant strides beyond expectations and nimbly bypassing constricting definition, Two is breathtaking music for the soul.
Ian Arkley has made his name within the ranks of Seventh Angel and the marvellously mercurial My Silent Wake, yet in his solo work he has uncovered another part of himself, allowing light to shine upon the deepest depths of his creativity. Following on from the warmly received One, Two will be released by Opa Loka Records on June 1st, a truly solo endeavour, with Ian being responsible for all the music, recording, mixing, artwork and photography. Utterly haunting, Two is an album that will touch the hearts and fire the imagination of those who open themselves to its embrace. A spell, a gift, a lost tale – an unforgettable listening experience.

1.6.2022 News BESIEGEDBesieged might be the most perfectly named band in metal, but for the slight implication that the band themselves are the ones being besieged. Anyone who has listened to their long-ago debut album, Victims Beyond All Help, knows that is very much not the case. This is music that does not take breaths, does not stop for rest, does not slow down, and shows no mercy.
Coming out of wintry Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada, Besieged has always sounded a little more South American, a little more European, and occasionally a little more Bay Area than their geography might imply. From any random song you can tell that the brothers who make up the band have listened to plenty of Beneath the Remains, given the raw vocals and brisk thrash tempos on display. But there is a jagged anarchy to their riff construction and frequent tempo changes that suggests they have absorbed plenty from European-style death metal as well. And the occasional shout-along chorus is straight out of the Bay's thrash playbook.
Twelve years have elapsed between their debut and this new album. But it takes only a few seconds of the very first track to disabuse anyone of the notion that the passage of time has slowed down the band any, or dulled their attack in the slightest. Violence Beyond All Reason is as perfectly named as the band themselves, in the end: this is pure audio violence, and does the thrash genre proud.
Track Listing:
1) Last Chance
2) Paragons of Brutality
3) Violence Beyond All Reason

Chilean Thrashers CRITICAL DEFIANCE will release new album NO LIFE FORMS on CD and digital formats July 18 via Unspeakable Axe Records.

First single "The Last Crusaders... Bringers Of Death!"" is streaming now at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BF03sF1XiBU
Chile over the past decade has been one of the hotbeds for extreme metal, particularly for bands that pay homage to, and expand upon, the pioneering work done in the genre in the 1980s and '90s. Of particular note is Chilean thrash metal, a scene bursting with bands who take familiar styles and just do them better, faster, and more authentically than almost anyone.
Critical Defiance were one of the more pulverizing acts in thrash in 2019, with their debut album on Unspeakable Axe (Misconception) marrying high-speed riffing to Bay Area-worthy melodies. Now their follow-up, No Life Forms, has arrived, and the band shows no signs of slowing down. It's clear from the opening notes that the three-year layoff was well-used, both to refine their compositions and to gather the massive amount of energy necessary for another full-on assault. The album is a whirling tornado of how-did-he-play-that guitar riffs, barked Tom Araya-esque vocals, and an indefatigable rhythm section that never misses a beat or slows the pace for a second. Surprisingly pretty lead parts and memorable choruses will keep you on the hook and break up the brutality just enough, like the squirts of cool water given to bloodied boxers between rounds.
With No Life Forms, Critical Defiance have exceeded themselves and made what is sure to be one of the best thrash albums of 2022.

German one-man symphonic dark metal band DAIDALOS founded in 2020 by drummer/pianist Tobias Püschner (former drummer of the technical thrash band Revolt) will be releasing the debut album "THE EXPEDITION" this coming July 2022 via Extreme Metal Music.
The album was inspired after reading a book on Captain Sir John Franklin's Lost Expedition, a British voyage of Arctic exploration that departed with 129 men from England in 1845. Both ships, called Erebus & Terror, became icebound and after being trapped and suffering in eternal coldness for over a year, the remaining sailors decided to abandon their ships. Trying to survive, they set out for the Canadian mainland, but disappeared.
"The Expedition" is a musical journey through the Arctic Ice, on board with Sir John Franklin's crew. The different moods the sailors had to experience at that time probably went from heroic and enthusiastic to absolute hopelessness and daily mortal fear. I composed these atmospheres musically and told them as a concept album / musical story." says Püschner
"The Expedition" contains nine songs and has a total playtime of 47 minutes plus a bonus track.
In preview to the record's release, Daidalos is sharing its visualizer for the opening track and first single "Icewind". It was the first song Püschner wrote for the album. It is powerful and energetic, but also represents the album's concept story and the crew's first contact with the adverse conditions of the journey.
"In the past, it was said as a nautical superstition that a woman on board brings bad luck. The grand finale of the song is therefore sung by a woman. I asked Noga Rotem to do this because she also conducts and composes orchestras and has a wonderful, powerful but also vulnerable voice. She has realized the theme and her text perfectly." adds Püschner.
Listen to "Icewind" https://youtu.be/9GuwOLLAIys
Digital single - https://bfan.link/icewind
Daidalos' concept can be described as a full orchestral and dark emotional cinematic journey combined with aggressive vocals and harsh guitars. Most of the songs recorded on the upcoming full-length contain clean choir vocals and fast-paced drumming along with each song being written exclusively on the piano first. The idea behind this way of songwriting is to first finish each track's own atmosphere with orchestral music and then use those emotions to create the harder parts.
For the recording of "The Expedition", Püschner recruited guest musicians and friends Martin Simon (Kambrium) (bass/backing vocals), Fabio Rossi (Tryglav) (lead guitar), Francesco Petrelli (guitar), Noga Rotem (choir vocals) who will also support Daidalos on live shows.
"The Expedition" is due out on July 29th, 2022, and is recommended for fans of Dimmu Borgir, Wintersun, and Fleshgod Apocalypse.

About:
DAIDALOS was founded in 2020 as a one-man band by Tobias Püschner.

The band´s idea is to combine a classical orchestra with fast and aggressive elements, to create atmospheric breakdowns of different mental states.
This happens along epic historic events and stories, to develop a heroic and often hopeless sad feeling.
After sending some demos of the debut album "The Expedition", Daidalos got directly signed by the label Rockshots / Extreme Metal Music in 2022.

SPECTRAL DARKWAVE – “LIVE FIRE EXORCISE”
1.6.2022 News Spectral DarkwaveLabel: Occidental Records
Release Date: June 30th 2022
Genre: Dark Metal
For fans of: Triptykon | Septic Flesh | Abyssic | The Vision Bleak
“...attune our drives to human frequencies...”
On Friday, October 8th Spectral Darkwave descended upon Hitchin’s Club 85; their mission to unleash the kaleidoscopic horror of their brand new album At Outer Dark upon their gathered disciples. On that special night the walls of reality were blown away and a glorious array of nightmares cascaded in – tales from beyond the stars and from the forgotten pages of history – all accompanied by a staggering barrage of superlative sonic fire power. Every moment of that ritual of magic, terror and mind warping ecstasy was captured and preserved for posterity. And now it is unveiled once more, under the banner of Live Fire Exorcise!
The release of At Outer Dark was a pivotal moment in the career of Spectral Darkwave. It represented not only the band’s return from six years of silence as they traversed the void, but a vast leap forward in their levels of musical achievement. The sheer excitement from both band and fans was palpable in Club 85, Spectral Darkwave’s hometown venue, as this new chapter of exploration and destruction was launched. The band played with a fierce determination and wicked energy as they discharged an explosive version of ‘A Toll Is Due’, the gargantuan monstrosity that is ‘The Last Red Hypergiant’ and their infamous hymn to war elephants and ancient battle, ‘The March Of Sses’; and the crowd howled their appreciation for every measured note. The purpose of a live album is to capture the thrill, the atmosphere and volume of a performance and with Live Fire Exorcise Spectral Darkwave have done that, with the glorious excess that is their trademark.
Live Fire Exorcise is the night of Spectral Darkwave’s rebirth, preserved forevermore; a night of history to be treasured and revisited at will – a window into memory for those who were there, a tantalising glimpse of possibilities for the rest. The essence of Spectral Darkwave’s wild fantasy and bludgeoning power is held within these songs. On June 30th climb aboard and ride with them on the razor’s edge of adrenalin, into the black maw of madness.
Line-up:
The Arch-Kakoph - Vocals/Guitar
The Gunner - Bass
The Engineer – Drums

Earlier this month, Saudi melodic death metallers IMMORTAL PAIN shared their first taste of new music with the single "Unhealed" to follow their 2021 EP "ORIGIN DEMOES" that featured recordings from 2007.

Today, the band is supporting the single by unleashing their new music video for it, which can be viewed at https://youtu.be/f7kfJCaDCz8
Digital - https://linktr.ee/immortalpainofficial
1.6.2022 News Immortal Pain"A straightforward track with lots of deep feelings, motivation, and amazing melodies." adds the band.
Formed in Saudi Arabia, Immortal Pain have been together since 2005, ripping up local stages with their take on melodic death metal. It has been a long time since they released music, but they are breaking their silence with a stand-alone single “Unhealed” via label Wall of Sound Dark Mode. The band firmly believes listeners will love this single as it will deliver an all-new original track that resembles the classic Immortal Pain vibes and energy with a modernized sound.
Over the years, the sound of Immortal Pain has definitely developed, as they have matured musically. They have been playing together for over a decade, and the chemistry is apparent. They continue to experiment with different sounds and techniques, but they don’t stray too far from the classic sound and style that they have become known for.
Immortal Pain’s live shows are packed with energetic, exciting fun as they consider each gig to be a celebration with their fans in a mutual love for music. They always give a 110% on the music and fan experience, as it is what they deserve. Along with playing live gigs this year, Immortal Pain will also be working on a number of singles, so fans can expect a lot more noise from the group.
Immortal Pain is powerful and melodic, adding an edge to typical melodic death metal. They incorporate personal themes to drive home the passion and emotion even more. They are recommended for fans of Iron Maiden, Metallica, and Arch Enemy.
