News Apostasy Records  : MAGENTA HARVEST – “ ...AND THEN CAME THE DUST “
Die aus dem finnischen Pietarsaari stammenden Magenta Harvest starteten als die Idee von Drummer Janne Manninen und Gitarrist Timo Kontio. Über die Jahre hat sich die Band zum Quintett ausgeweitet und mit „Volatile Waters“ aus dem Jahre 2014 ein beachtenswertes Death Metal Debüt vorgelegt.
 Am 01. September wird ihr neues Album auf die Menschheit losgelassen: „… And Then Came The Dust”! Das Album verfolgt den brachialen und zugleich atmosphärischen Ansatz des Debüts weiter, offenbart dem Hörer aber noch packendere melodische Momente. Dafür vertraute man sich erneut Produzent Juho Räihä (Wolfheart, To/Die/For, Before The Dawn) an, welcher einen enorm druckvollen Sound für die neun Kompositionen erschuf. Das passende Artwork stammt on Marcelo Vasco Arts | p2rdesign.com (Slayer, Kreator, Machine Head, Hatebreed, Dark Funeral).
Mit „… And Then Came The Dust“ entfesseln Magenta Harvest ein starkes Konzept, das keine Gefangenen macht!

Verehrte Tollfinder toller Bands! Irgendwie war ja klar, dass wir von Rise-Above-Boss Lee Dorrian nach dem Ende seiner großartigen Doom-Band CATHEDRAL noch was hören würden. "LOVE FROM WITH THE DEAD" ist bereits das zweite Album der grrrrrrrrrroßartigen WITH THE DEAD, und - als hätte man was anderes erwartet - HEAVY, pardon, H.E.A.V.Y!
Stilecht zu Halloween 2014 gegründet stehen WITH THE DEAD hinter dem Erbe der Ex-Bands (neben Cathedral auch Electric Wizard und Ramesses).
"Love With The Dead" ist der perfekte Soundtrack für eine Welt mit wenig Licht am Ende des Tunnels, für eine kaputte Menschheit, die sich selbst zerfleischt, für die absolute Apokalypse.
Trotz des Albumtitels sind WITH THE DEAD heavier, düsterer, verzweifelter, desillusionierter und schlicht fucking heavier, pardon F.U.C.K.I.N.G. H.E.A.V.I.E.R. denn je.
Siebziger-Doom-Nostalgie könnt Ihr hier vergessen.
Der Weltuntergang könnte nicht schöner klingen.

Werte Zeitlupen-Rock- Connaisseure, MONOLORD regieren!
Der Heavy Rock des Schweden-Dreiers hat binnen kürzester Zeit eine internationale Die-hard-Fanbase hinter sich versammelt.
Der dritte Longplayer "RUST" macht die Kerle jetzt endgültig zu den – nennen wir´s ruhig mal so – Nirvana des Doom!  Es dröhnt, fuzzt, sludget und rifft, dass es eine wahre Freude ist.
"Rust" ist ein Erlebnis, keine pure Songsammlung.
Das Bandfeeling geht vor Soloeskapaden.
Die Dynamik des Trios ist kolossal.
Macht Euch bereit für die neue schwedische Sirup-Rock-Invasion!
Hier könnt Ihr bereits den Titelsong ´Rust´ hören:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=YX4HwEAF_Eo
John Gamino (Mondo Drag) ist hier an den Keyboards, und Trevor Church (Beastmaker) spielt das Solo am Ende.

Chilean Black/Death Metal Squad OCCASVS will release debut album NOCTURNAL MAJESTIC MYSTERIA via Unspeakable Axe Records on September 29.
A promo video for album track "Union" is available at  this location . The song is an 8-minute odyssey through all of the band's startling blend of ideas and influences. Tremolo-picked riffs intertwine around blast beats, and the vocals are growled, shrieked, and even sung in eerie, stentorian harmonies
The Chilean underground scene has thrived for aeons with great bands playing every brand of extremity. OCCASVS is both unique within that scene and a fitting encapsulation of it, combining black metal with death metal, heavy metal, and more.  They lay in wait for years as their long-in-the-works debut album was fine-tuned to their exacting standards. Now Nocturnal Majestic Mysteria is to be unleashed on the world.
Track List:
1. Andante Nocturno Op.7
2. Triumphal Defeat
3. Under Human Eyes
4. Psychic Burial
5. Ritual Death
6. Seer
7. Union

Sentient Ruin Releases Vinyl and Cassette Version of Spanish Black/Death Horde's Latest Masterpiece. Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide -  we're happy to present you with the vinyl and cassette release of Longing for the Untold  an incredible new (enhanced) mini album by Spanish black/death sorcerers AVERSIO HUMANITATIS
Originally released on CD in Spain only in early 2017, Aversio Humanitatis' tyrannically majestic masterpiece Longing for the Untold now endures an inevitable second skin molt transforming into the true beast it was meant to become and assuming its final harrowing form as we bring you and enhanced re-release on vinyl and tape of this staggering and monumental black metal opus, now re-packaged with three bonus tracks from past splits and EPs as the B side and with new incredible artwork.
With Longing for the Untold this Spanish band has created a colossal behemoth of technically intimidating and sonically imposing progressive black metal that lunges forth toward the listener with crushing force, levitating out of solid darkness - its mass and shape monstrous and awe-inducing as it projects its monstrous silhouette against total darkness, resembling the stygian singularity of an inescapable black hole. Reminescent in style and execution to the darkened and cerebral craft of Icelandic black metal bandslike Zhrine, Svartidauði, Misþyrming, and similarly wretched black metal anomalies like Skáphe, and Deathspell Omega, and enhanced by the muscular build of dark death metal bands like Ulcerate, Abyssal, and Gorguts, Longing for the Untold more than a thing, is a place and time where the power of sound literally devours the senses turning perception into a smoldering and swarming void of sensorial awe and of transcendental sonic disintegration.

NUCLEAR WARFARE – “EMPOWERED BY HATE”
THRASH TO THE BONE! For 15 years now the South German NUCLEAR WARFARE have dedicated themselves to the good old Thrash Metal of the 80s and have established themselves in the last years to spearheading this genre. In addition to countless tours and concerts across the continent, the time has come for a new album every few years. So also 2017.
"Empowered By Hate" is the name of the new album, and the album title reflects the aim! 10 neckbreakers have hammered, produced and mastered in the Papiris studio in Sao Paulo. The work was made under the direction of Caio Monfort between August 2016 and January 2017, in order to release them into humanity in the form of their now fifth longplayer. 
And everyone who knows the South Germans, knows also that their merciless homage to the German Thrash of the 80s, mixed with Bay Area influences, is always able to unscrew your head!
Losing much more words would be like carry coals to Newcastle. In addition, the band regularly found a way to descripe their music in just a few words, like the titel of the predecessor album "Just Fucking Thrash". This time the last track of the album gets the point: "Thrash To The Bone". Nothing more to say!

Crusted severed toes nailed to walls; humans covered head to toe in needles administering horrific psychoactive chemicals; an infants head being turned to apple sauce on a kitchen counter's edge - these are only fragments of the surreal and vicious stories told on SCALPEL's Methods to Delusion. Wielding chainsaw guitars and sledgehammer percussion, Methods to Delusion brings back a psychedelic element to extreme music, inflicting chaos and sickening truth unto the listener. The album was engineered by Colin Marston (GORGUTS) at Thousand Caves Studios.
BIO
Death Metal is a visceral art that is dependent upon the extreme dedication of its loyal fans. We have no other purpose but to deliver a version of this art to those same fans like us, whose lives have been claimed by the likes of SUFFOCATION, CARCASS, and DEATH. It is in this vein that we construct our own brutal dirges, devoid of genre restriction and eager to explore the darker realms of music.
SCALPEL is a four-piece band hailing from various cesspools in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Guitarists Manny Egbert and Taylor Brennan assume dual vocal duties layered on top of blistering guitars; Matt Bellows belches deafening low end proficiency on the bass guitar, and Chip Fay thunders behind the drum set, collectively driving the chaos that is the 
SCALPEL sound.

Boston Death Metal quintet SOUL REMNANTS have released new single "Depravity's Lock" from forthcoming album OUROBOROS. Stream it at  this location.
SOUL REMNANTS will release its third album, Ouroboros, July 21 on Entertainment One/LifeBlood, Inc. A concept album revolving around a futuristic, dystopic war amongst all mankind, Ouroboros is the SOUL REMNANTS' most ambitious recording to date.
While the new album is more dynamic than its predecessors, it still maintains the uniquely crushing style that SOUL REMNANTS has cultivated over its career. 
Pre-orders:  http://www.2lin.cc/ouroboros
Stream "Echoes of Insanity" at  this location. While you're at it, check out Pure Grain Audio's premiere of "Dissolving into Obscurity"  here.
So few emerging bands in this day in age can pride themselves on being a Death Metal band, committing to the title, uncaring of consequence and fostering the ability to stick to the slime that creeps down the walls of all hyperbolic underground musical trends. Hailing from the Boston-area and beyond, within the depths of New England, SOUL REMNANTS catalyze a major point that Death Metal is by far the most punishable to all.
BIO
Hailing from the outskirts of Boston, MA, Soul Remnants began to form in 2003 with Thomas Preziosi on guitar and Mitch Fletcher on vocals.  They aimed to combine the raw intensity of American death metal with Scandinavian black metal. After a number of demos, the debut album Plague of the Universe was self-released on December 11, 2009. It was produced by acclaimed producer Peter Rutcho at his Damage Studios.  
Following the release of the debut album, Ryan Murphy joined on bass, Chad Fisher on second guitar, and Colin Conway on drums.  The band again entered the studio with Peter Rutcho and created their second full-length album entitled Black and Blood,  which built upon the already sturdy metal foundations of the debut.  The group upped the intensity and performance while maintaining a nod to the old school masters of death and black metal. Black and Blood was released October 31, 2013 on indie label HPGD Productions, to much critical acclaim.  This record saw the band embark on their first overseas tour in support of the album (Devouring Europe tour 2015).   The song "Dead Black (Heart of Ice)" appears in the hit video game Rock Band 4, and is the game's heaviest song.
In 2016, Soul Remnants returned to the studio to create their third full length album, titled Ouroboros. Soul Remnants then inked a deal with Entertainment One/ Lifeblood, Inc. for the release of Ouroboros in 2017.
Soul Remnants have shared the stage with notable bands such as Nile, Obituary, Suffocation, Unearth, Revocation, Lock Up, Deceased, Master, Goat Whore and Rotten Sound.

VANUM – “ BURNING ARROW”
Burning Arrow is the second release from Vanum, the collaborative project of K. Morgan (Ash Borer, Predatory Light) and M. Rekevics (Fell Voices, Vilkacis, Vorde). Following their debut album, Realm of Sacrifice, released on Profound Lore Records, the Burning Arrow EP reveals a band both expanding their sonic palette and rigorously seeking the distillation of their own essence.
Though the sound of the band hasn't ultimately changed wildly, there have been key shifts that distinguish this release from not only Morgan and Rekevics' other bands, but also Vanum's own previous output. The duration of the individual songs, as well as the arc of the entire mLP, have been streamlined and trimmed of all fat. A muscularity and sense of triumphant might define the composition. This increased focus on riff-craft, embraced while managing not to eschew atmosphere, reveals the significant influence of classic Hellenic black metal alongside the furious Slavic sound that has consistently been a part of Vanum's musical identity. This new sonic influence, paired with a more belligerent and outward looking lyrical approach, serve to create an aura of bombastic power and arrogant glory; a marked contrast to the largely melancholy and inward looking mood and concept of the previous album.
Perhaps ultimately, the name of the release is the most convenient illustration of it's own essential qualities. Realm of Sacrifice was marked by both the sorrow and endurance evoked and demanded by the rite of ritual sacrifice, while Burning Arrow is exactly what it's own namesake would also suggest; Concise, cutting, and ablaze with warlike intention. The sharpened point of Vanum.
Recorded and mixed by Andrew Oswald. Mastered by Dan Lowndes.
Cover Art by Todd Ryan White.
Line up:
K. Morgan
M. Rekevics
Tracklist:
1. Watcher in the Eastern Sky (08:58)

Deathbound records is very proud to announce its first collaboration with Post/Doom Metal outfit LONGHOUSE.
The least we can say is that LONGHOUSE are not afraid of taking their audience light-years away from any traditional heavy metal clichés. Diving into their vocalist's Indigenous heritage and fearlessly commenting on important issues affecting the Indigenous population in Canada, such as the intergenerational impacts of the Indian Residential School System, and Murdered and Missing Indigenous women and girls, LONGHOUSE has created a unique mixture of heavy, intricate riffs, splashed with a touch of post-metal that guides you on a dark and textured doom metal.
“This album is raw, tranquil, oppressive and emotive but is always of the highest quality… if you’re in the mood for a hybrid of heaviness drawing comparisons and influences from the likes of Cult of Luna, High on Fire, Neurosis, Khemmis, Unearthly Trance, we set our Sludgelord dial to stun because this album is spectacular.” - The Sludgelord
Produced and engineered by Mike Bond (Loviatar, Norilsk, Crusades), their latest album II:Vanishing is a visceral journey of five tracks spanning nearly 40 minutes. Recorded at Wolf Lake Studios, II:Vanishing, their sophomore album, continues right where they left off with their debut album Earth from Water, released in 2015. Guitarist Marc Casey, bassist/vocalist Joshua Cayer and drummer Mike Hache’s music has captured the attention of many media outlets in 2016, from No Clean Singing, ToiletovHell, Sludgelord, Lords of Metal, Doomed to Darkness and Bonded By Metal just to name a few.
LONGHOUSE are set to continue crushing eardrums in 2017. Listen to their track “The Vigil” and judge for yourself.

ORACLE – “BEYOND OMEGA “
Release Date: July 28th, 2017
Genre: Extreme Metal
Oracle is a limitless amalgamation of ideas and styles focused on creating grandiose music that can move a crowd and enthrall the listener. A conjuration of all things heavy. Oracle meld brutal with the atmospheric, embellishing the groove with death and black metal throughout. Formed in May of 2016, Oracle released their debut aptly titled "Beyond Omega" on July 28th 2016. Beyond Omega displays defined and audible vocals that crush and maim while the rhythm of the guitars build the songs to apex, explode, and crescendo. The lyrical concepts are chapters of perspective and metaphor. Based upon a life's beginning, tribulation and sufferings, and the end. Which is painted as freedom or a final release. Complete with guitar harmonies and guitar solos both expressive and impressing, the grind and blasts of the drums and bass drive the madness to extremity. A search for sincerity in an insincere world, Oracle severes the veins of the untrue. There will be blood.
Oracle are on guitar and vocals- Jason Long, lead guitar- Trey Ozinga, bass- Ray Ozinga, drums- Bg Watson
Record label- Camp Yeti
Release date- July 28th 2016
Produced and Mixed by Jason Long

DE PROFUNDIS’ 10th Anniversary celebrations continue unabated! 10,000 copies of the new career retrospective album, DECAYED: 2007 – 2017 went out to the newsstands with Zero Tolerance Magazine, Issue 079, on Friday and today the band are launching a special pre-order for very limited Decayed... t-shirts! Featuring the awesome artwork designed for the CD by none other than Gary Ronaldson (Kreator, Misery Index, Benighted, Napalm Death etc) these t-shirts are the quintessential death metal garment. Each t-shirt will also come with a copy of the Decayed... CD – signed by every member of De Profundis – and remember, the Decayed... CD is the only place to find the track, ‘An Orgy Of Grotesqueries’, the video for which has been creating a stir everywhere. No Clean Singing have just reviewed ‘...Orgy...’, declaring it,
“...fast-paced and jolting, a big juggernaut that’s also constantly firing off flashes of lightening-bright, head-twisting guitar acrobatics and shimmering melody while the main force of the song ploughs ahead on its mission of destruction. After just a few listens, I’ve become highly addicted to it."

Not to be outdone, De Profundis’ label, Wickerman Productions, have joined in with the 10th Anniversary festivities by offering the band’s acclaimed 2015 album, Kingdom Of The Blind, for the celebratory price of $7.99 – for a limited period.

It’s been ten years now since De Profundis released their debut album, Beyond Redemption and milestones like that are worth celebrating. The band knew they wanted a release to mark this achievement, but they also knew they wanted to go about it in a different way. Zero Tolerance Magazine have always been big supporters of De Profundis and so the band decided to give something back to their loyal fans and the avid readers of the magazine...
Marking their 10 years, 10,000 copies of issue 079 of Zero Tolerance Magazine will come complete with a new retrospective compilation album from De Profundis, entitled Decayed: 2007 – 2017. The band have pulled out all the stops to make this collection something really special. Decayed... features one exclusive new track, ‘An Orgy Of Grotesqueries’, for which a powerful video has been created by Andy Pilkington of Very Metal Art and nine remastered classics that span De Profundis’ entire career.  This unique collection, available nowhere but with ZT mag, comes housed in a special sleeve designed by renowned metal artist Gary Ronaldson, whose work has adorned albums and t-shirts by Kreator, Napalm Death, Misery Index, Benighted and many more. 10,000 copies of Decayed... will be heading off around the world with ZT 079, but when they’re gone, they’re gone forever.
Journalist Will Pinfold, who interviewed the band for a major feature in Zero Tolerance 079, had this to say about the Decayed... collection...
"Decayed 2007-2017 is an essential compilation which not only charts the evolution of one of the UK’s best underground metal bands through some of their strongest songs, but is also a reminder of just how great De Profundis were right from the start."
It’s been a long road from Beyond Redemption to Decayed... and along the way De Profundis have played with the likes of Iron Maiden, Lacuna Coil, Enslaved, Grand Magus, Gorgoroth, Taake, Malevolent Creation, Rotting Christ, Vader and Immolation, they’ve played in 24 countries, including India – and they’ve just finished a full European tour with David Vincent’s I Am Morbid and gore legends Necrophagia.
There have been good times, there have been tough times, but most importantly there has been some amazing music – and with a new album already recorded, there’s plenty more to come.
Track Listing:
1. An Orgy Of Grotesqueries – new and exclusive track
2. Kult Of The Orthodox – from Kingdom Of The Blind
3. Thrown To The Wolves - from Kingdom of the Blind

Chicago Death Metal trio MORDATORIUM are proud to announce the August 25 release of new album OBSESSED WITH DEATH. Inspired by the likes of GRAVE, CARCASS, VALLENFYRE, ENTRAILS, and early ENTOMBED, MORDATORIUM deliver harsh, biting Death Metal fueled by the sounds of the early British and Swedish scenes. A promo video for new song "The Culling" is available at  https://youtu.be/GP0YTXQyuok
Pre-order:  https://mordatorium.bandcamp.com/album/obsessed-with-death
With main man Andrew Oosterbaan handling guitars, bass, and vocal duties alongside Pearl Kacew on drums, recording for Obsessed With Death began over the final months of 2016 and the album was completed in the spring of 2017. The cover artwork and visual design was created by Lauren Gornik Illustration.
Andrew Oosterbaan comments: "We're very excited to present this album, as it has been a long time in the making. A couple of the songs are almost two years old now! It's also a big pleasure to be able to unleash the first full-length MORDATORIUM release featuring acoustic drums and my longtime partner in crime Pearl. Obsessed With Death continues the trend begun on 2014's 'Raw,' steering away from the more melodic and experimental material of MORDATORIUM 's early years in favor of some more straight forward and nasty sounding death metal. I absolutely love the old-school looking artwork that Lauren did for us, as I feel it fits the current style of the band nicely."
Track List:
1. Rampage
2. Obsessed With Death
3. Beheaded
4. The Culling
5. Biting Cold
6. Murder Castle
7. Overmind
8. The Gallows
9. The Butcher

BIO
Begun as a hobby project by guitarist/vocalist Andrew Oosterbaan in 2007, Mordatorium was realized as a full band in late 2014. Comprised of several members from experienced local acts, and with a handful of releases (consisting of only Oosterbaan and a drum machine) providing a wealth of material to perform, the newly formed Mordatorium quickly took to playing out around the Chicago metal scene.
The band soon set to remixing and re-releasing Oosterbaan's last solo effort, Raw, in 2015 - an album inspired by tales of murder and criminal psychology that make up the bulk of the band's live shows. The band then set to writing a follow up, continuing to move away from the more melodic and varied early material and towards a more stripped down and focused sound inspired by early 90's death metal acts.
After splitting with longtime bassist Nigel Bravo, core members Oosterbaan and drummer Pearl Kacew constructed a home studio and set to work finalizing their next album, entitled Obsessed With Death in the fall of 2016. With new bassist Jon Corston completing the lineup, Mordatorium now prepares to unleash their next set of songs upon all those who crave rotten death metal.

Hi,This first release on ZANJEER ZANI PRODUCTIONS marks my collaboration with NECROCOSM for all future releases....
Are you legitimate? Are you true? Are you worth your place among us? Time is nigh to number the Justs in the Lord, to sort out the faithful to our cause and separate from them the ones impures, the miscreants, the hypocrites.
May this be perceived as a declaration to the so-called « black metal » scene.
This fallacious show, of this assembly more pathetic day after day, of this whole mass of pretensiousness, illusions and make-believe, will have to be soon put to an end. The swarming infestation of false believers and worshippers seeking not His glory but their entertainment should be tolerated no more. The True follower’s apathy, their self-satisfaction and meekness shall be abandonned.
Spiritual war shall be declared. The Infidel will have to justify himself, and bow down or flee.
This is our Manifesto.
Four years after «Le Son des Stigmates », the Sektarism congregation makes its return with a new full-length work. « La Mort de l’Infidèle » is more than a regular album. Recorded live in one single take, it is an improvised ritual captured in the moment. The living and spontaneous profession of faith of both a full set of beliefs and an authentic conceiving of the Black Arts. A work sincerly crafted, true not to the accepted norm of the day but to the living feelings of its perpetrators. A full hour of noisy devotion, ritualised improvisation, execration of the mundane and the beautiful and menaces to whom in them revels.
O Lord, this Ceremony is set in Thy Honour! May it exalt the ones who share our Faith, and gives defiance and disgust to the faint-hearted unable to understand and accept it. As Judgment comes close uncertainty and compromises won’t be tolerable. Each and everyone will have to define and justify himself. This false world asks for its purification, that will have to be preceded by the one of individuals. May « La Mort de l’Infidèle » ranks among the spiritual and artistic weapons that will favorise it!
SEKTARISM - LA MORT DE L'INFIDÈLE
A cavernous prayer laid in darkness by a strangled voice, this is what Sektarism has been for the last 12 years. Formed in 2005 by eminent members of the Apostles of Ignominy brotherhood, the drone/funeral doom congregation has since spawned its incantations over the french and international underground
After three demo ep’s in a span of three years, Sektarism gave birth to its first album ‘Le Son des Stigmates’ in 2012 under the banner of Zanjeer Zani, which received an excellent following. The assembly has since produced two split albums, including a notorious split LP , ‘Mort Divine’, with french black metal cult Darvulia on Nuclear War Now !. The last release so far, ‘Les Voûtes’, is a live album coming in a limited hand-made packaging to celebrate a ceremony set in Paris in 2015 with members of the french experimental musical scene.
Sektarism has gained an infamous reputation for their public appearances. Their fully ritualized approch of the act of playing live makes them different and unique. Each ceremony is not a gig but a celebration in the name of the Hidden Absolute, a codified yet improvised praise to the Lord. The communion with the audience can be total as the assembly sets everything in place to summon the bleakest trance possible. Everyone may be involved in the ritual, making it a radical experience in the age of sterile and harmless entertainment that so-called extreme metal has become.
The year 2017 after the Death of the Impostor will be a year of conquest for Sektarism, with the release of a new album : ‘La Mort de l’Infidèle’. These new gospels will put the assembly ahead of its own scene, setting by their integrity and intensity new landmarks for ritual and doom genres. The procession of the Penitents follows its path, still flagellating to spill its blood over the misery of human condition. No Redemption is at hand, for there is no Hope  in this cursed world except finding a flickering light of meaning in the heart of a corrupted Spirituality. No one will be saved, nailed to the Cross each has chosen himself. Sektarism is the sound of your perpetual lamentations, the icon of your Demise, waiting for the sound of the Seventh Trumpet...

DURATION: 48:26
LABEL: SoMan Records
NETWORK DISTRIBUTOR: SoMan Records
DIGITAL DISTRIBUTOR: CD Baby
Bludy Gyres has recently released their first full length album which is entitled "Echoes of a Distant Scream" (2017). Founded in 2014, Bludy Gyres is a doom metal band in the early Black Sabbath tradition. What makes this band unique is the inclusion of early English prog influences. A two song EP which was twenty two minutes in length and release in 2014 is entitled 'Bludy Gyres'. This contained two songs named "To Live Is To Bleed", which is a metal version of the old Scottish ballad "John Barleycorn". The second song is "Kept Death Busy". There was a second release in 2015 which was a single eighteen minute doom epic entitled "Behold! Your World Now Burns!" Both releases were produced by Mike Froedge (Black Label Society, Dixie, Inc). "Defy the Lie" is a single produced at Tommy Stewart's Blue Ogre Noise Lab and released in 2016 as a sample of what will be a full length album for 2017. Of note, the group consists of two members from thrash metal band Hallows Eve, Chris Abbamonte and Tommy Stewart. At the end of 2016, Bludy Gyres signed with Soman Records for one album which is now released as "Echoes of a DIstant Scream", also produced by Tommy Stewart. Future plans include to continue playing live shows and to create a second official full length album."

VULPUS: Terrorizer streams "CERTITUDE" . "Certitude" is the new full-length from Portugal's post-black metallers Vulpus.
Released on June 25th via Pest Productions, the seven-track production was captured by Daniel Valente at Caos Armado Studios. Now, Terrorizer Magazine is streaming "Certitude" in full at this location: 
  http://www.terrorizer.com/news/listen-to-certitude-by-vulpus/
"This 39 minutes’ long piece goes deeper and deeper through contrasting stages, ranging from melancholy to anger, depression to acceptance, reflecting the schizophrenic ideals of what it is to live an age where dogmas and long imposed symbols are being dismantled with the individual to be left alone in the center of the universe haunted by the gargantuan notion of death and irrelevance to the universe, being this the only certainty. There is a dense atmospheric feel, created by noise/ambient pieces embracing the 4 more direct raging songs which compose the core of the album."
Eighteen years after "Dor-Nu-Fauglith", the 2nd full-length of OSCULUM INFAME (with DK Deviant of Arkhon Infaustus) is ready to spread its venom!!
Originally released in 500 copies on Battlesk'rs Productions in 2015, "The Axis Of Blood" is re-released on June 30, 2017!
OSCULUM INFAME -  “THE AXIS OF BLOOD”
After years of rumours about their second coming, OSCULUM INFAME make official the rebirth of the less popular French B.M. act with the rerelease of all their demos on LP and CD under the name “Manifesto From the Dark Age” in 2010. The new line up, restrained to guitarist originator Drack aka Deviant and drummer Malkira record at home in the pure black metal tradition 2 new tracks for the EP “QUWM”. It’s beyond all doubt that Osculum Infame has nothing to do with mere human political ideas and draw its hate far away in Darkness. Joined by the guitarists I.Luciferia and Dispater the band recorded 15 titles in 2011 at their home studio AMSG to release the MCD “Consuming the Metatron” and the new full album (the real second full album in the story of the band) “The AXIS OF BLOOD”.
In site if a discussed image, it's beyond all doubt that ..Osculum Infame.. has nothing to do with mere human political ideas and draw its hate far away in the darkness and chaos... ..Osculum Infame.. does not have the ideas that the rumors gave to the band 15 years ago. ..Osculum Infame.. is JUST WORST !! We are worst, remember that. We were, we are and we will be. We are at war against the mass, we've coming in total hate and we fuck them all !!...
...HAIL SATAN !!
"The Axis Of Blood" has been released by Battlesk’rs on May 22nd 2015, then reissued on June 30th 2017.

So wie sich das Zweitwerk "KILLING CREATOR"  von INFECTED CHAOS musikalisch vom reinen Death Metal Korsett löst und sich mehr und mehr anderen Stilrichtungen und einer bösartigeren, finstereren Atmosphäre öffnet, ändern sich auch die Lyrics. Auf politische Stellungnahmen wird größtenteils verzichtet, stattdessen geht es auf eine Reise hinab in die eigenen Abgründe. Furcht vor sich selbst, das Erkunden von Einsamkeit, aber auch das Erlangen von Weisheit und Stärke, das Erfahren der Kraft der Natur, die Beschwörung der eigenen Dämonen sind die Grundfesten der verwendeten Lyrik. Was ursprünglich als okkultes Manifest geplant war entwickelte sich unter den Schwingen Baphomets in eine gänzlich andere Richtung, da dieser scheinbar mühelos Gegensätze in sich selbst vereint. Männliche wie weibliche Attribute verschmelzen zu einem ganzheitlichen Wesen, Tag ist Nacht, Nacht ist Tag. As above, so below we are the Killing Creators!

Werte Rocker! DYNAMITE melden sich mit einem big bang zurück und haben ihn praktischerweise auch gleich so genannt: "BIG BANG" ist das dritte Album der Schweden.
Erstmals haben sich die Hardrocker mit außenstehenden Produzenten und Komponisten zusammengetan.
Mankan Sedenberg hat einen fantastischen, roh-authentischen, aber dennoch detailreichen und transparenten Sound zurechtgezaubert, der mit den Werken sämtlicher Genregrößen locker mithalten kann.
Als Co-Composer holte man keinen Geringeren als Multi-Million-Seller Andreas Carlsson (u.a. Paul Stanley, Bon Jovi, Europe, Def Leppard) ins Boot.
Die beiden Herren kitzelten das ohnehin schon immense Potenzial der Musiker noch besser raus.
"Big Bang" ist das abwechslungsreichste DYNAMITE-Album geworden.
Es gibt straighten In-your-Face-Rock´n´Roll, mitreißende Singalongs, aber auch die härtesten Tracks der Bandgeschichte.
70er-Jahre-Heavy-Rock klang selten so brillant nach dem 21. Jahrhundert!
Das schicke Cover findet Ihr weiter unten.
Hier ist schon mal die Tracklist:
March On (To The Beat Of Your Drum)
Bring It On
Turn Up The Heat
Walk The Talk
Hooked On You
Beg Borrow And Steal
Big Bang
All Bark No Bite

CAPTAIN CAVEMAN -  'FAILED SPECIES'
RELEASE DATE:  July 1st, 2017
RUNNING TIME:  13:44 minutes
GENRE:  Powerviolence, Grindcore
FFO:  Man Is The Bastard, Napalm Death, Pig Destroyer, Spazz, The Afternoon Gentlemen...
DL & STREAM:   www.facebook.com/cavelord   www.captaincaveman.bandcamp.com
CAPTAIN CAVEMAN unleash a torrent of ear-rending bass and drums Powerviolence on their first full length 'Failed Species'. Opening in classic Grind style with a three second sample the German trio immediately set about bullying the listener's ears on the furious opener "Taste The Waste", stacatto blasting riffs interspersed with stomping d-beats are the theme here and do not relent throughout the release. Comparisons can easily be made to contemporary Powerviolence greats like Water Torture or Iron Lung and Grind legends such as The Afternoon Gentlemen, or maybe even the metallic edges of an act like Rotten Sound in places, the performence captured on this album is characteristically tight and concise.
Instrumentaly the bands most obvious comparison would be a something like a more controlled Water Torture, with faster, more legible drums and the noise breaks replaced with movie samples, aesthetically CAPTAIN CAVEMAN's sound shares some similarities with their fellow countrymen in Trigger, though vocally divergent and with a much cleaner production. The bass maintains a buzzing intensity throught the 19 tracks, moving between fast trem-picking blast sections and churning mosh riffs seemlessly. Drums are at the forefront in the mix, kicks pounding ears ringing from the clanging snare without losing anything under oscilating layers of fizzing bass. The vocals follow three distinct styles, from the harsh grind roar, through the more shrill scream generally associated with more 'technical' groups, to the classic PV yob shouting like Man Is The Bastard. Lyrically the release pulls no punches, focusing on decline in society and the failure of the species with little subtlety spared, matching the ferocity of the instruments.
This is a pummeling release with a sledgehammer's lack of subtlety that leaves no time for the brain to catch up. It will reduce the listener to embracing their inner caveman in under 14 minutes! The album is out this summer on WOOAAARGH, Hackebeil, Let The Bastards Grind, BMX Outlaw, Knochen Tapes, Wembley Prod. on LP, MC, Digital.

This sharp blade is definitely forged in 80's Metal and finds influences in bands like Exodus, Heathen, Anthrax, Agent Steel!
All songs deliver lethal doses of authentic Speed-Thrash metal, with a great personal touch; the result is not for weak ears!
JENNER is the only all female speed/thrash metal band in Serbia. The band was formed in December 2013 by sisters Alexandra (guitar) and Marija (drums) with the goal of following their influences Judas Priest, Warlock, Grim Reaper... Their friends Andjelina (vocals) and Jana (bass) joined the band and they started covering their favourite songs of bands that are already mentioned.
After spending more time together and acquiring Alexandra, they took on a more ferocious and faster sound in the likes of Anthrax, Overkill, Exodus, Agent Steel... After a year of work, Jana were replaced by their current bassist, Mina and girls immediately started working on their own songs. Soon, they released Demo 2015, for the further band promotion and submission to Serbian famous Guitar festival in Zajecar which contained two songs, "Hear the Thunder Roar" and "On the Judgement Day" uploaded only on JENNER's official Youtube channel.
The audience in Serbia and even in other countries loved the demo, so they begun working on the debut album. Marija were on a maternity leave for a year, so their good friend Selena Simic (Nemesis, Goatmare and the Hellspades) helped them with some gigs and finishing  their debut album "To Live Is To Suffer", soon to be released by french label, Infernö Records.

Swedish death metal force FERAL have signed a multiple album and format deal with Indian label Transcending Obscurity Records. Their style of music is uncompromising and pure, and in their own way they take ahead the classic death metal sound, finding gnarlier and more twisted expression within the HM-2-driven sound. With four releases already under their belt since 2007, they’re gearing up to unleash their upcoming full length on the new label.
Label owner owner Kunal Choksi comments, “Transcending Obscurity Records is proud to have another stellar Swedish death metal act in its ranks. Feral are going from strength to strength and their latest EP was gnarly, aggressive and yet redolent of the classic Swedish sound. We believe the best from them is yet to come. We’re happy to work with David Nilsson and the band and have signed a two-album contract, starting with a full length that will be unleashed first. They’re taking the Swedish death metal sound ahead and that’s what’s most appealing about this hardworking band.”
Feral vocalist David Nilsson adds, “We are thrilled to announce that Feral has signed to Transcending Obscurity Records, one of the fastest growing labels around right now. Their passion for the music and dedication to each undertaking convinced us immediately and we can’t wait to reveal our next release through them. The new material we have prepared is some of our strongest to date, and we are sure that it will be in the right hands with Transcending Obscurity Records. At this point we have more than enough material written and plan to start recording later this year, a raging death metal onslaught is soon in the making.”

ZORNHEYM – “ WHERE HATRED DWELLS AND DARKNESS REIGNS NON”
Symphonic Extreme Metal band based in Stockholm - founded and led by multi-instrumental mastermind and songwriter Zorn.
After parting ways with his former band Dark Funeral, he was determined to shake up the traditional Metal meets Symphony approach with his new band Zornheym.
Zornheym quickly grew from an ambitious idea into a dramatic musical and cinematic narrative revolving around the horrors of a mental institution and its prisoners
Inspiration drawn from icons such as Dissection, Dimmu Borgir and King Diamond is paired with real string orchestration and a powerful full choir. Every song on the debut album will have a visual accompaniment in the form of short graphic stories with further exploration of the themes as short films in place of the standard approach to music videos.
The line-up is completed by Facebreaker's Bendler on vocals, guitarist and musical arranger Scucca, and Diabolical drummer Angst. The debut album has been recorded at Wing Studios by Sverker Widgren, renowned veteran of sound engineering on the Scandinavian extreme metal scene (October Tide, Demonical, IXXI, Diabolical)
Vocals: Bendler (Facebreaker, tour/session vocalist for Scar Symmetry)
Leadguitars: Zorn (ex-Devian, ex-Dark Funeral, Aktiv Dödshjälp)
Guitars: Scucca
Drums: Angst (Diabolical)
Bass: TBA

Werte Edelmetaller! KILL PROCEDURE sind eins der bestgehüteten Geheimnisse des US-Metal. Und wenn wir "US Metal" sagen, meinen wir nicht nur den geografischen Standort, sondern auch das Genre.
Es geht also um echtes Kraft-Metall mit Arschtritt und Anspruch.
Ein geschmackssicherer Anknüpfungspunkt wären zum Beispiel 20 Jahre alte, also richtig coole Megadeth.
Doch macht Euch einfach selbst ein Bild.
  "BRINK OF DESTRUCTION" ist tatsächlich vor gut zwei Dekaden entstanden.
Hinter der Band steckt vor allem Lou St. Paul (g./v., Winters Bane, Fires Of Babylon).
"Brink Of Destruction" war ursprünglich als Nachfolger des Winters-Bane-Albums "Heart Of A Killer" (1993) gedacht, wurde jedoch vom damaligen Label nicht veröffentlicht, weil es sich aus dessen Sicht musikalisch zu weit vom Vorgänger entfernt hatte.
Erst 2017 kommen diese Aufnahmen nun verdientermaßen ans Tageslicht.
KILL PROCEDURE sind übrigens nach wie vor existent und spielen in folgender Besetzung:
Lou St. Paul (v./g.), Kelly Conlon (b.; ex-Death/ex-Monstrosity) und Jeff Curenton (dr., Winters Bane, ex-Seven Witches).
Und hier noch etwas über das Label FC Metal und seinen Chef Eric Cerda:
Erics Liebe für die europäische Metal-Szene und den hiesigen Fußball brachte ihn dazu die USA zu verlassen und in Berlin FC Metal (Football Club Metal) zu starten. Durch das Label, die Musik und das Label-Merchandise will Eric die leidenschaftlichsten Fans vereinen: Fußball-Fanatiker und Metalheads! Bevor er nach Deutschland zog, war Eric in San Francisco Boss des Labels DCA Recordings (u.a. bekannt durch BALANCE OF POWER, WINTERS BANE, MAGNITUDE 9, LETHAL, PSYCO DRAMA und EXPERIMENT FEAR).

Werte Mitstreiter! Unsere liebsten Progressive-Death-Pop-Helden THE GREAT DISCORD legen mit ihrem neuen Album "THE RABBIT HOLE" die Messlatte verdammt hoch.
Die Musiker haben sich ihre Sporen u.a. bei Ghost, Magna Carta Cartel, Tid, PG, Lost, Dead Soul und Vanhelgd verdient; mit Ghost, Kvelertak, Katatonia und Ghost Bath ist man zudem getourt und hat dafür richtig tolle Reviews eingeheimst.
THE GREAT DISCORD haben "The Rabbit Hole" komplett in Eigenregie aufgenommen.
Im Vergleich zu ihrem Debüt "Duende" (2015 auf Metal Blade erschienen) zeigt sich der Haufen zugänglicher, aber immer noch ausreichend auffällig und durch die Performance von Frontperson Fia Kempe (aka IRE) ohnehin in gänzlich eigenen Sphären unterwegs.
Auf ´Omen´ brilliert übrigens kein Geringerer als Mark Holcomb von Periphery mit einem Solo!
Hier gibt´s noch zwei schicke Videos:

Das neue Werk wird den Titel „At The End Of Times“ tragen und zehn Songs enthalten, die erneut von Andy Classen im Stage One Studio gemastert wurden.

Die aus Amsterdam, Holland stammende Metalband THE CHARM THE FURY haben das neue Lyric-Video zu ihrem Song 'Weaponized' veröffentlicht. Der Song stammt von ihrem kürzlich veröffentlichten Album »THE SICK, DUMB & HAPPY«.
Die Band kommentierte: "Love is one of those things songwriters and global media conglomerates just can’t get enough of. You can’t listen to the radio without being bombarded with sappy love songs. You can’t pick up a magazine or watch TV without being barraged with advertisements promising you to become more attractive, better looking, smelling better than anyone else. In short: something the opposite sex simply can’t resist.
What’s often overlooked is that ‘love’ in the modern age has become an industry, designed in boardrooms, by people looking to push a product or image on you. A tool designed to keep consumers in check. And those that do not fit the norm end up feeling left out and misplaced. Victims of an industry.”

Vier Jahre sind seit der Veröffentlichung des ersten Albums vergangen und THE CHARM THE FURY befinden sich inzwischen auf einem höheren Level als jemals zuvor. Während sie auf Europas größten Festivals gespielt haben, begann die Band in eine neue Richtung zu gehen. Mit einer verblüffenden Ladung ultra modernem, aber absolut unverkannbarem Metal, definieren sich THE CHARM THE FURY gewandt und ehrlich als das, was sie wirklich sind. Sie haben ein wütendes Album aufgenommen, angetrieben von der gemeinsamen Abscheu gegenüber dem Zustand des Planeten im 21. Jahrhundert und unterstützt von grimmiger Intelligenz mit dem innigen Wunsch, die Menschen endlich aus ihrer Smartphone-Stumpfheit aufzuwecken.
Mit ihrem brandneuen Album, »The Sick, Dumb & Happy«, sind THE CHARM THE FURY bewaffnet, bereit und lechzen nach dem nächsten großen Schlag. Sie haben Songs, die Bestimmung und das Charisma um es zu schaffen. Wer gegen sie wettet, tut dies auf eigene Gefahr!

Italian Noisecore masters INFECTION CODE have just completed the songwriting process of their sixth studio album. The record, titled “DISSENSO", will contain 8 new songs.
 Musically, it will touch all the territories the band has fostered during their creative history. Jazz-like post-hardcore, psychedelic electronics, and noise disturbances with a particular focus on experimental sounds.
 The lyrics for "Dissenso" will relate to topics rooted in the history of Italian society during the 70’s. "Dissenso" will also see some guest appearances the likes of which will help further the already rich musical landscape.
 INFECTION CODE will be laying tracks for "Dissenso" this coming Fall to be released by Argonauta Records in early 2018.

Austin (TX) -  CANYON OF THE SKULL has returned! The instrumental Doom duo of guitarist Erik Ogershok and Adrian Voorhies (Humut Tabal) will release sophomore album THE DESERT WINTER on August 19. The CD version will be available in a gorgeous 6-panel format.
Consisting of the undeniably epic 37-minute title track of blackened doom, The Desert Winter is a journey deep into the psyche. Listeners are strongly advised to clear out all head space (and any earwax) and settle in for this existential Ride of the Doomed!
Recorded at WoodenHorse studios October 2016
Mixed and Produced by Zawicizuz and Canyon of the Skull
Mastered by Proscriptor McGovern (Russ R. Givens) at Nox Luna Inlustris Music
Artwork Layout and design by Erik Bredthauer
Adrian Voorhies- Drums, Percussion
Erik Ogershok- Guitars, Bass, Percussion
BIO
The brainchild of Erik Ogershok, COTS was initially manifested in the winter of 2006. Several local appearances and lineup fluctuations later, life happened, and the project lay dormant. 2014 saw the return of Ogershok as he recruited new musical personnel in the form of drummer Adrian Voorhies of the Austin-based Black Metal outfit HUMUT TABAL and once more brought the doom ensemble to life to melt the faces of all who sought shade in the Canyon walls.
After numerous regional gigs both opening for touring colleagues and spearheading an array of craft beer events and festival slots (including two SXSW appearances), the band closed the year with a blistering performance at the End of the World Fest in Houston alongside Austin brethren The Sword and Eagle Claw. 2015 saw the creation of the band's first recording, a self-titled EP solidifying the now scaled down duo of Ogershok and Voorhies as a force to be reckoned with in the Texas doom scene. 
With the EP capturing some attention, they embarked on a two-week tour of the Midwest, bringing their signature brand of instrumental doom from the Twin Cities to Louisville. Once home, the band commenced production on their most ambitious musical effort yet with rare selected live performances across the lone star state. In October, they headed back into Wooden Horse studios with an A-list production team of Zawicizuz (The Black Moriah) and Proscriptor McGovern (Absu) and their sophomore offering was forged. Now, as the band prepares to release The Desert Winter, only one message can truly be counted on: Abandon All Hope.

FUNERALIUM have come a long way and have virtually redefined this style. They've taken their death/doom-based music and merged it with influences from the funeral doom and even DSBM style to create a powerful expression that outlasts all notions of relevance. Just when it's perceived that some of the individual styles have reached their peak, FUNERALIUM turn the sound on its head so to speak and create evocative music without diminishing any of the essence. They take the best qualities and add their personal reflections of trauma and suffering to it, making it a difficult album to listen to but one that will prove to be a very rewarding one ultimately. Their expression of sorrowful and dark doom metal music is singular and deep. Fans of this style of music won't find a better album all year to wallow in.

Cascadian Black Metal project BEREFT OF LIGHT by Romanian musician Daniel Neagoe, known from his work in bands like Shape of Despair, Eye of Solitude, Unfathomable Ruination or Clouds, presents its debut full-length album, HOINAR, out now and available via Loud Rage Music:
Physical version (jewel-case CD) -
http://shop.loudragemusic.com/bereft-of-light-hoinar
Digital version - https://loudragemusic.bandcamp.com/album/bereft-of-light-hoinar
Tracklist:
I – Uitare
II – Legamant
III – Pustiu
IV – Freamat
V – Tarziu
Here’s what Daniel had to say on this new project: “Bereft of Light is a symbol for introspection, a chapter in the solitude we all long for, a thousand thoughts that break the barrier of mind and a calm before the storm of feelings.
Hoinar, Romanian word for “wonderer” is a statement of solitude and introspection, a simple but ample opportunity to escape in one self’s own world where anything and everything can shape up and be coloured in all possible tints.
A soul’s journey up the ladder of life, past, present and future. A dive into the unknown of one’s mind and an open door in the mirror of eternity.”
Hoinar is now streaming in full here:

Boston Death Metal quintet SOUL REMNANTS will release its third album, OUROBOROS, July 21 on eOne/LifeBlood. A concept album revolving around a futuristic, dystopic war amongst all mankind, Ouroboros is the SOUL REMNANTS' most ambitious recording to date.  While the new album is more dynamic than its predecessors, it still maintains the uniquely crushing style that SOUL REMNANTS has cultivated over its career. 
Stream new single "Echoes of Insanity" at  this location . While you're at it, check out Pure Grain Audio's premiere of "Dissolving into Obscurity" here.
Pre-orders:  http://www.2lin.cc/ouroboros
So few emerging bands in this day in age can pride themselves on being a Death Metal band, committing to the title, uncaring of consequence and fostering the ability to stick to the slime that creeps down the walls of all hyperbolic underground musical trends. Hailing from the Boston-area and beyond, within the depths of New England, SOUL REMNANTS catalyze a major point that Death Metal is by far the most punishable to all.
Track Listing:
1. Mechanical Synapse Modulations
2. Regurgitated and Consumed
3. Depravity's Lock
4. Walled City
5. Mental Tourniquet
6. Echoes of Insanity
7. Dissolving into Obscurity
8. Decomposition
Hailing from the outskirts of Boston, MA, Soul Remnants began to form in 2003 with Thomas Preziosi on guitar and Mitch Fletcher on vocals.  They aimed to combine the raw intensity of American death metal with Scandinavian black metal. After a number of demos, the debut album Plague of the Universe was self-released on December 11, 2009. It was produced by acclaimed producer Peter Rutcho at his Damage Studios.  
Following the release of the debut album, Ryan Murphy joined on bass, Chad Fisher on second guitar, and Colin Conway on drums.  The band again entered the studio with Peter Rutcho and created their second full-length album entitled Black and Blood,  which built upon the already sturdy metal foundations of the debut.  The group upped the intensity and performance while maintaining a nod to the old school masters of death and black metal. Black and Blood was released October 31, 2013 on indie label HPGD Productions, to much critical acclaim.  This record saw the band embark on their first overseas tour in support of the album (Devouring Europe tour 2015).   The song "Dead Black (Heart of Ice)" appears in the hit video game Rock Band 4, and is the game's heaviest song.
In 2016, Soul Remnants returned to the studio to create their third full length album, titled Ouroboros.  Soul Remnants then inked a deal with Entertainment One/ Lifeblood for the release of Ouroboros in 2017.
Soul Remnants have shared the stage with notable bands such as Nile, Obituary, Suffocation, Unearth, Revocation, Lock Up, Deceased, Master, Goat Whore and Rotten Sound.

BIESY: New project announces debut album :
Biesy - the project started by PR and supported by Stawrogin (Odraza) and MP (Outre) - will release their debut album, Noc Lekkich Obyczajów, on 9 September 2017 via Third Eye Temple.
Watch a teaser video, an excerpt from the track "Rzucony w przestrzeń" here:  https://youtu.be/n4PmUcnBXug
Biesy - translates to "fiends" from Polish - were born out of everyday working, urban and monotonous realities. The project explores how urban concrete life can separate you from reality, but at the same time enables you to cross its borders. This is not the place for faith - there is no time nor will. During the night people go astray and willingly drown among the masses on the streets. In the morning they fall down to create a passage for everything that is wonderfully common and hideously sincere. However, it is not certain if they even left the room.
Biesy are:
PR - music, lyrics
Stawrogin - vocals
MP – drums

GODHEAD MACHINERY-  “ OUROBOROS “
Format: CD/Digital
Release Date: September 29th 2017
Record label: Inverse Records
Genre: Extreme Metal
Country: Sweden
The Swedish extreme metallers Godhead Machinery are going to release their debut album “Ouroboros“ on the 29th of September 2017 under the wings of Inverse Records.
Ouroboros is a dynamic piece of work with seven tracks that’s varying between aggressive and technical tones down to atmospheric harmonies with timeless groves. The bands main concept deals with the ongoing political and religious greed and corruption that swallows all that can be eaten in this world. Godhead Machinery has clearly been inspired by the early black metal era from the -90th but has adapted their sound and concept to match the present scene and madness with their songs. The album has been recorded, mixed and mastered by Magnus Jonsson at MILK studios who is known for his work with bands like Hate Script and Von Panzer.
Beside the front man Robert Kail Karlsson (Misericordia, Wardenclyffe) on vocals and guitars, the band also consists of the guitarist Fredrik Blomqvist (Reduced to Ashes), the bassist Daniel Forsberg (Hate Script) and Marcus Somliga Andersson (Deviant Breed) on the drums.
Godhead Machinery has recently already released their song “Praise the Flesh” from the album as a digital single and as a lyric video to give a hint of what to come. 
 Ouroboros Track list:
1. Ouroboros
2. The Plague
3. Tithe
4. A House Divided
5. Council of Nicaea
6. Revelation
7. Praise the Flesh

DEADSMOKE - New album "MOUNTAIN LEGACY" Out September 29th on Heavy Psych Sounds .  Presales start September 1st
TRACK LISTING:
I. Malevolent Path
II. Endless Cave
III. Hiss Of The Witch
IV. Emperor Of Shame
V. Wolfcurse
VI. Forest Of The Damned
VII. Mountain Legacy
DEADSMOKE is an Italian doom/sludge band that sounds like amplifiers buried in the deep, with down-tuned monolithic guitar riffs scraping the soil down to the core of the earth. Slow, hypnotic, dissonant cadences recall the eternal need for isolation and the atavistic fear of nothingness. Sub-frequencies corrode the one last trace of human cognition, apprehension and judgment. Your soul is already burnt, smoke is what remains.

KING SATAN releases new music video from their debut album! "DANCE WITH THE DEVIL"
Genre-bending industrial metal act KING SATAN releases fourth music video from their recently released debut album ”King Fucking Satan”. If two earlier music videos presented the band’s vision of occult, mind and the world saturated with black comedy and twisted satire, ”Dance With The Devil” presents the darker and heavier side of the band’s outputs, like the first music video ”Enter Black Fire” unleashed from the album. Music video was directed by the band’s mastermind King Aleister Satan himself.
King Aleister Satan comments:
”Dance With The Devil” is a sort of a microcosmos of the whole album, both musically and lyrically. I wanted to return to use more surrealism with this video, which I haven’t used in this scale since I made videos for Saturnian Mist, before King Satan. There might be a surprise waiting for those whose attention span is not yet ruined by the social media -era, which rewards the patience. To say about it nothing more than just this is more of a short film, than music video in traditional concept.”
VIDEO:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUiFJm4R3rY&feature=youtu.be
King Satan’s debut album ”King Fucking Satan” was released 26th May 2017 via Saturnal Records world wide, expect 30th June 2017 by Plastic Head Distribution for UK and Ireland.

Hi,This first release on Zanjeer Zani Productions marks my collaboration with Necrocosm for all future releases....
Are you legitimate? Are you true? Are you worth your place among us? Time is nigh to number the Justs in the Lord, to sort out the faithful to our cause and separate from them the ones impures, the miscreants, the hypocrites.
May this be perceived as a declaration to the so-called « black metal » scene.
This fallacious show, of this assembly more pathetic day after day, of this whole mass of pretensiousness, illusions and make-believe, will have to be soon put to an end. The swarming infestation of false believers and worshippers seeking not His glory but their entertainment should be tolerated no more. The True follower’s apathy, their self-satisfaction and meekness shall be abandonned.
Spiritual war shall be declared. The Infidel will have to justify himself, and bow down or flee.
This is our Manifesto.
Four years after «Le Son des Stigmates », the Sektarism congregation makes its return with a new full-length work. « La Mort de l’Infidèle » is more than a regular album. Recorded live in one single take, it is an improvised ritual captured in the moment. The living and spontaneous profession of faith of both a full set of beliefs and an authentic conceiving of the Black Arts. A work sincerly crafted, true not to the accepted norm of the day but to the living feelings of its perpetrators. A full hour of noisy devotion, ritualised improvisation, execration of the mundane and the beautiful and menaces to whom in them revels.
O Lord, this Ceremony is set in Thy Honour! May it exalt the ones who share our Faith, and gives defiance and disgust to the faint-hearted unable to understand and accept it. As Judgment comes close uncertainty and compromises won’t be tolerable. Each and everyone will have to define and justify himself. This false world asks for its purification, that will have to be preceded by the one of individuals. May « La Mort de l’Infidèle » ranks among the spiritual and artistic weapons that will favorise it!
SEKTARISM – „LA MORT DE L'INFIDÈLE“
A cavernous prayer laid in darkness by a strangled voice, this is what Sektarism has been for the last 12 years. Formed in 2005 by eminent members of the Apostles of Ignominy brotherhood, the drone/funeral doom congregation has since spawned its incantations over the french and international underground.
After three demo ep’s in a span of three years, Sektarism gave birth to its first album ‘Le Son des Stigmates’ in 2012 under the banner of Zanjeer Zani, which received an excellent following. The assembly has since produced two split albums, including a notorious split LP , ‘Mort Divine’, with french black metal cult Darvulia on Nuclear War Now !. The last release so far, ‘Les Voûtes’, is a live album coming in a limited hand-made packaging to celebrate a ceremony set in Paris in 2015 with members of the french experimental musical scene.
Sektarism has gained an infamous reputation for their public appearances. Their fully ritualized approch of the act of playing live makes them different and unique. Each ceremony is not a gig but a celebration in the name of the Hidden Absolute, a codified yet improvised praise to the Lord. The communion with the audience can be total as the assembly sets everything in place to summon the bleakest trance possible. Everyone may be involved in the ritual, making it a radical experience in the age of sterile and harmless entertainment that so-called extreme metal has become.
The year 2017 after the Death of the Impostor will be a year of conquest for Sektarism, with the release of a new album : ‘La Mort de l’Infidèle’. These new gospels will put the assembly ahead of its own scene, setting by their integrity and intensity new landmarks for ritual and doom genres. The procession of the Penitents follows its path, still flagellating to spill its blood over the misery of human condition. No Redemption is at hand, for there is no Hope  in this cursed world except finding a flickering light of meaning in the heart of a corrupted Spirituality. No one will be saved, nailed to the Cross each has chosen himself. Sektarism is the sound of your perpetual lamentations, the icon of your Demise, waiting for the sound of the Seventh Trumpet...

Sieben Jahre nach „Warlord“ meldet sich dieKult-Black-Metal-Band ANDRAS am 20.10.2017 mit „REMINISZENZEN ...“ zurück. Aufgenommen wurde der neue Longplayer im Cryptsound-Studio in Aue und gemischt und gemastert vom ehemaligen Bandmitglied Andor Farago in dessen Studio. Veröffentlicht wird sie via Einheit Produktionen. Das Album soll an jene essenziellen Leitmotive des Black Metal erinnern, für die die Band aus dem Erzgebirge seit jeher steht: Spiritualität, Ablehnung des Christentums und Liebe zur Heimat. Aus diesem Grund wurde das Album in die drei übergeordneten Teile „Reminiszenzen an die verwunschenen Transzendenzen“, „Reminiszenzen an die vertrauten Lügen“ und „Reminiszenzen an die verwurzelte Heimat“ aufgeteilt. Die meisten Texte sind diesmal deutsch, was der Musik mehr Tiefe verleihen, die Aggressivität unterstreichen und die Verständlichkeit erhöhen soll.Nachdem die letzten Jahre von diversen Besetzungswechseln geprägt waren, haben Andras nun wieder ein festes Line-up. So konnte Gitarrist Nightsky das Andras-Urgestein Black Abyss (Bass) zurück in die Band holen, die von Khenaz (Gesang) und Ghwerig (Keyboard) komplettiert wird. Als Gastdrummer ist überdies der ehemalige Andras-Trommler Shardik dabei und für das Artwork (inkl. 20-seitigem Booklet) konnte man Thomas Huth gewinnen.    www.facebook.com/Andras.Oremountains             Einheit Produktionen  PF 1101  03116 Drebkau    www.einheit-produktionen.de

NUCLEARWARFARE „EMPOWERED BY HATE“ erscheint am 4. August! Das neue Album der deutschen Old School Thrasher Nuclear Warfare hört auf den Namen „Empowered By Hate“ und wird am 4. August auf MDD erscheinen! Der Albumtitel ist musikalisches Programm. 10 Nackenbrecher wurden zwischen August 2016 und Januar 2017 im Papiris Studio in Sao Paulo aufgenommen, produziert und gemastert, um diesen Sommer in Form des fünften Longplayers auf die Menschheit losgelassen zu werden. Wer die Süddeutschen kennt, weiß, daß ihre gnadenlose Hommage an den deutschen Thrash der 80er, gemischt mit Bay Area Einflüssen, jederzeit dazu in der Lage ist, einem die Rübe abzuschrauben. Mehr Infos gibts schon bald!

Verehrte Entdecker entdeckenswerter Bands!  Auf Altnorwegisch bedeutet HELSOTT "tödliche Krankheit". 
Das passt zu einer ruppigen Pagan-Metal-Band, auch wenn sie aus demkalifornischen San Diego stammt.
HELSOTT präsentieren eine coole Mixtur aus Death Metal, Folk, Symphonic Metal, Thrash, klassischem Metal und Rock, die nicht nur gen Skandinavien schielt,sondern sich ihre amerikanischen Einflüsse durchaus bewahrt hat.
Auf der nordamerikanischen Paganfest-Tour mit Ensiferum, Trollfest und Tyrräumten sie damit 2013 erstmals in größerem Rahmen ab. Nach dem Release des Debüt-Albums "Woven" folgten weitere Tourneen, u.a. mit Arkona und Heidevolk.  Jetzt legt die Band die 5-Track-EP "THE HEALER"vor.
Ursprung der EP ist ein fanatischer HELSOTT-Anhänger namens Doc (tatsächlichein Arzt), der im Rahmen der Crowdfunding- Kampagne für "Woven" das Angebot der Bandwahrnahm, von ihr einen Song geschrieben zu bekommen.
HELSOTT waren von dem Resultat so begeistert, dass sie gleich noch ein paarweitere Tracks – darunter ein Cover des Iron-Butterfly-Classics ´UnconciousPower´ - dranhängten und jetzt auch der Rest der Fans was von der Aktion hat.J-F Dagenais (Kataklysm, Ex Deo) hat den Songs einen kraftvollen und zugleichtransparenten Mix verpasst.
Das Cover stammt von Felipe Machado Franco (u.a. Blind Guardian, Iced Earth).

RED MOON ARCHITECT haben auch ein neues Musikvideo für den Titelsong RETURN OF THE BLACK BUTTERFLIES veröffentlicht. Das letzte Video zu diesem Album erzählt während sechs Minuten eine eindringliche Geschichte voller zermalmendem Doom.   http://youtu.be/KVw55N9Nf68
Das Album wurde von Red Moon Architect-Mastermind Saku Moilanen in den Deep Noise Studios in Kouvola im Südosten Finnlands aufgenommen, produziert und abgemischt. Gemastert wurde das Album von Juho Räihä in Soundspiral Audio.

STREAMS OF BLOOD – “ULTIMATE DESTINATION MMXVII “
STREAMS OF BLOOD wurde 2009 von Thymos und Tavor gegründet. Im Sommer 2009 nahm die Band ihre erste Mini-CD "Antilife" auf, das Schlagzeug wurde von Torturer (MOR DAGOR, BELPHEGOR) eingetrümmert. Im Winter 2010 schloss sich Schlagzeuger Blood Hammer (u.a. BELPHEGOR, PANZERCHRIST, Ex-PARAGON BELIAL) der Band an. Für STREAMS OF BLOOD ging es daraufhin erneut ins Studio, um das erste Album "The Descend To The Source Of Disorder" einzuspielen, welches im September 2011 von Articaz und Ketzer Records gemeinsam veröffentlicht wurde. Im Februar 2013 erschien die erste Version von "Ultimate Destination" und bereits im Frühjahr 2017 schloss die Band mit "Allgegenwärtig" ein weiteres Kapitel der Bandgeschichte ab.
Motiviert durch das positive Feedback zu "Allgegenwärtig" und dem günstigen Zeitpunkt, war es Thymos ein Anliegen, "Ultimate Destination" noch einmal neu herauszubringen. Allerdings nicht in gleicher Form, sondern komplett neu gemixt und gemastered: "Ultimate Destination MMXVII". Rückblickend erkannten STREAMS OF BLOOD, dass der Sound der Erstveröffentlichung nicht das Optimum aus den Songs geholt hat. Daher gibt es nun diese neue Version mit dem Ziel, einen wärmeren, druckvolleren Sound zu erschaffen, der vor allem einen besseren Schlagzeug-Sound erzeugt.
Seit Anfang 2017 hat Deafground ein eigenes Streamingformat entwickelt: 'DEAFGROUND LIVE' - eine zweistündige Musiksendung mit Livekonzerten und Interviews, die nach dem DIY-Broadcasting-Prinzip im Bielefelder Firmensitz produziert und per Livestream auf Facebook gesendet wird. Nach zwei sehr erfolgreichen 'Testläufen' geht das Sendeformat nun im 2-Monats-Rhythmus in Serie: Der nächste DEAFGROUND LIVE Stream mit HORSEMAN und DEVOTION läuft am 24.06.2017, von 21-23 Uhr unter www.facebook.com/deafgroundrecords.
Das Spannende: Im Gegensatz zum klassischen TV-Format bietet das Senden über ein soziales Netzwerk Zuschauen die Möglichkeit zur Interaktion, um aktiv an der Show zu partizipieren. So können diese etwa über die
Kommentarfunktion unter dem Livestream Fragen stellen, die im Rahmen der Interviews von den Künstlern beantwortet werden, oder an Gewinnspielen während der Sendung teilnehmen. Moderiert wird DEAFGROUND LIVE von der Bielefelder Sängerin Debby Le Pard - in der nächsten Sendung am 24.06. mit Unterstützung von Gastmoderator und OPERATION CHERRYTREE Frontman Andy.
Gehostet wird der Streaming-Post auf der Deafground Records Facebookseite. Da die Sendung zudem bei Facebook aufgezeichnet wird, ist DEAFGROUND LIVE auch nach Sendeschluss noch verfügbar und kann jederzeit abgerufen werden.
Wie bei allen Deafground-Projekten steht auch bei DEAFGROUND LIVE die Etablierung einer Plattform zur Unterstützung der Newcomerszene im Vordergrund. Pro Sendung sind jeweils zwei Bands zu Gast im 'Studio': Eine
Band aus dem NOIZGATE-/Deafground-Roster und eine lokale Newcomerband, der auf diesem Wege die Möglichkeit geboten wird, sich einem großen Publikum zu präsentieren.
Eine Ausnahme stellt die nächste DEAFGROUND LIVE-Sendung am 24.06.2017 dar: Neben HORSEMAN als lokale Bielefelder Band wird als weiterer Gast ausnahmsweise keine 'hauseigene', sondern mit DEVOTION eine Band vorgestellt werden, auf die Deafground im Rahmen des BRUTAL VISION Samplerprojekts aufmerksam geworden ist und die am Online-Voting um einen Slot auf der Tracklist der neuen Compilation teilnimmt. Da besagtes Voting am gleichen Abend um 22 Uhr endet, werden die Gewinnerbands zudem live in der Sendung verkündet werden.
Obwohl während der Sendung ein kleines Studiopublikum anwesend ist, handelt es sich bei DEAFGROUND LIVE übrigens keineswegs um eine lokale Konzertveranstaltung: Die Show ist nicht öffentlich und wird in erster
Linie für das Facebook-Publikum produziert - und die Resonanz bisher ist überragend!
Weitere Sendetermine für DEAFGROUND LIVE 2017:
23.09.2017 (u.a. mit THE LEGION:GHOST)
21.10.2017 (mit OPERATION CHERRYTREE und STORAGE5)
09.12.2017 (u.a. mit ALL WILL KNOW)

CHAOS - 'ALLAGAINST ALL'  
Ltd. Edition Box Set / CD / Digital
Genre - Thrash Metal
Release Date - June 15th, 2017
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity India (Sub-label)
For fans of - SODOM, KREATOR, SLAYER, VENOM, WARBRINGER, HYPNOSIA, MUNICIPAL WASTE, ANTHRAX, D.R.I.
Indian thrash metal titans CHAOS are back with their sophomore album titled 'All Against All'. It's one of the most anticipated albums in this region, and that's not surprising considering what a rage their debut album 'Violent Redemption' was. Standards have been upped remarkably, with artwork being made by the talented Reuben Bhattacharya (Visual Amnesia) and better packaging this time around on digipak format as well as a limited edition hand-numbered gold-embossed box set. Like last time, the production is done by Keshav Dhar of SKYHARBOR and it sounds just as vitriolic and exciting as it needs to be. The performances are absolutely tremendous - everything is several notches up and the music actually sounds fresh. 'All Against All' is a riff-fest from start to finish and fans of old school thrash metal will be all over this. It's easily one of the mightiest albums to ever come out of this country.
Track list: 
1. The Great Divide 
2. The Inevitable Genocide 
3. All Against All 
4. Indoctrination 
5. Death To The Elite 
6. The Enemy 
7. Patrons of Pain 
8. Asylum 
9. Portrait In Blood 
10. The Escape 
Line up: 
JK - Vocals
Nikhil - Leads
Vishnu - Bass
Manu – Drums
 
MRTVI  - 'NEGATIVE ATONAL DISSONANCE'
8-Panel Hardcover Digipak
Genre - Experimental Black Metal
Release Date - July 30th, 2017
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - DEATHSPELL OMEGA, PORTAL, ORANSSI PAZUZU, PLASMODIUM, BLACK FUNERAL, BLUT AUS NORD, NORSE 
MRTVI, the mysterious underground entity has reared its ugly head with another groundbreaking album that defies conventions and bends perceptions. A twisted interpretation of black metal laced with ambient textures and unpredictable experimentation turns the professed genre on its head. Like contrasting mental thoughts, the music is a cacophony of various influences clashing in a seemingly indecipherable pattern, with chaos reigning but only on the surface; underneath, it's a carefully planned web of inextricable melodies and bursts of emotions. 'Negative Atonal Dissonance' is not for everyone. It's for those willing to embrace the true extremity of the genre perceived through the lawless, nonstandard and audacious prism of this UK/Serbian band.
Track list: 
1. As Consciousness Is Harnessed To Flesh Part 1 (7:52)
2. As Consciousness Is Harnessed To Flesh Part 2 (12:50)
3. Negative Atonal Dissonance (20:53)
 
TARLUNG - 'BEYOND THE BLACK PYRAMID'
Genre - Sludge Metal
Release Date - May 5th, 2017
Record Label - Black Bow Records (UK)
For fans of - FISTULA, CROWBAR, SOILENT GREEN, THE WHOREHOUSE MASSACRE, THE DEAD, ELECTRIC WIZARD, GRIEF, WARCRAB, CONAN
Dense and suffocating, TARLUNG's music crawls along ponderously, squeezing the life out of its listeners. This kind of expression in sludge is rarely done but ends up being most satisfying. The riffs command the direction, as within the mire of the deafening sludge you have catchy hooks and memorable tunes. Influences from closely related genres such as death metal and even stoner doom coalesce to form their monolithic sound. This is the band's latest full length album and it lays waste to everything else they've done before. Listen to one of the heaviest albums in this style and quiver under its might. 
Line up: 
Rotten - Guitars 
Marian Waibl - Drums 
Phillip "Five" Seiler - Guitars and Vocals 
Artwork - Alex Eckman Lawn (DEFEATED SANITY, MARUTA, KREIG, ZEALOTRY)
Track list: 
1. It Waits In The Dark 01:50
2. Dying Of The Light 08:16
3. Mud Town 06:27
4. Kings And Graves 09:47
5. The Prime Of Your Existence 10:56
6. Resignation 04:02
7. Born Dead 09:13
8. Beyond The Black Pyramid 07:29
9. Karma 08:21

PATHOLOGY  - 'SELF TITLED'
Genre
- Brutal Death Metal
Release Date - July 21st, 2017
Record Label - Comatose Music (US)
For fans of - ABOMINABLE PUTRIDITY, SUFFOCATION, DISGORGE, BRODEQUIN, DISENTOMB, VIRULENCY, CATTLE DECAPITATION, ABORTED
Devastating brutal death metal unit PATHOLOGY have gone from strength to strength, incorporating variations and technical flourishes within the ultra-heavy framework of the sub-genre. Eight full length albums have cemented their position worldwide as one of the best bands of their ilk, and their new one on Comatose Music will only uphold their global status and take it higher. On their latest opus, we have 10 songs of cutting-edge chock-a-block brutality without any intros or beating around the bush; and yet each song has its own identity largely due to the compositional skills of the members. High speed execution is matched perfectly by the standard-setting guttural vocals of Matti Way who is in best form since the early DISGORGE days. All in all, this is a contemporary death metal beast that remains true to its art and will go down as one of the best albums in the style for years to come.
Line up: 
Matti Way - Vocals (ABOMINABLE PUTRIDITY, ex-DISGORGE, LITURGY A.D.)
Dave Astor - Drums, Vocals (ex-CATTLE DECAPITATION)
Tim Tiszczenko - Guitars (BEING KILLED)
Par Olofsson (IMMOLATION, DEEDS OF FLESH, ABOMINABLE PUTRIDITY, DEVOURMENT)
Track list: 
1. Lamentation
2. Dolorous
3. Litany
4. Servitors
5. Dissevered
6. Putrescent
7. Doth
8. Shudder

Dark Essence Records have inked a deal with the UK trio FIVE THE HIEROPHANT, whose instrumental music is composed of ritualistic soundscapes fused with Psychedelic Black Metal, Jazz, Post Metal and Ambient.
The band's debut album, slated for release later this year,  will be the follow up to the 2015 self-titled  EP "Five the Hierophant",  which was released on Witching Hours Productions.  Work has been progressing well on the, as yet, untitled album, with the drum tracks having been laid down already.
FIVE THE HIEROPHANT, whose line up comprises Chris on drums, temple bells, djembe, shakers and gong, Mitch on  bass and effects, and  
? on guitars, bowed guitars, rag-dung, violin and  grand piano noise, had this to say about their upcoming collaboration with Dark Essence Records: "It is with happiness and great pride that we can announce that FIVE THE HIEROPHANT is about to embark on a journey that we hope will take us far,  far, out.  And you're coming with us. We have joined forces with good people of Karisma / Dark Essence records from Bergen, and are heading towards murky waters over Phlegethon  like there's no tomorrow".

Formed in 2016 with the goal of creating contemptuous heavy metal in the vein of their influences and a mutual disgust for the safety of modern metal, Milwaukee's PREZIR has released its aptly titled debut EP, CONTEMPT. Stream and/or purchase the EP at the following https://prezir.bandcamp.com/
Featuring guitarist/bassist Rory Heikkila (Shroud of Despondency), vocalist/lyricist Luka Djordjevic (Khazaddum), and drummer Brian Serzynski (Pigs Blood), Contempt is an iniquitous and undeniably feral blend of Death, Black, and Thrash Metal with influences inclusive of early Emperor, early Enslaved, Grand Belial's Key, Arghoslent, Morbid Angel, Deicide, and Destroyer 666.
Drums on Contempt were tracked by Dan Klein at Iron Hand Audio. Everything else as recorded and produced by the band in 2017. Mixing by Rory Heikkila.
Track Listing:
1. How God Loves
2. Devotee Decree

FORMICARIUS -  “ BLACK MASS RITUAL “
Genre: Black Metal
For fans of: Emperor | Cradle Of Filth | Dimmu Borgir
In 2016 Formicarius really announced themselves to the world. They stepped out from the underground pack, planted their standard with a wicked flourish and proclaimed, loud and clear, their grand ambitions, their intent to conquer. The ‘Lake Of The Dead’ single, recently re-released with new cover art, was their war cry and it lead to the band’s inclusion on Sony/Music For Nations’ compilation album, Speed Kills VII. In tandem with becoming part of the fabled Speed Kills legacy Formicarius released a stunning lyric video for ‘Lake Of The Dead’, created by Andy Pilkington of Very Metal Art, noted for his work with thrash legends Flotsam & Jetsam. The band rounded off their year with a prestigious slot on the only UK date of the Negura Bunget 20 year anniversary tour and an incendiary performance in London with Hate and Noctem – a live presentation that Zero Tolerance Magazine described as “a tidal wave of bombastic black metal grandeur”.
So 2016 was the warning and now it is time for the storm to be unleashed, the war for supremacy to begin in earnest. Formicarius are immensely proud to have joined forces with Schwarzdorn Production and can now unveil their full length debut album – Black Mass Ritual. Black Mass Ritual gathers up all that is great about black metal - the atmosphere, the intent, the velocity, the savagery, the dark beauty, the drama, the overwhelming power – and breathes new life into its decayed lungs, infusing it with a raging, unholy vigour. The sheer quality of songs like ‘May The Rats Eat Your Eyes’ with its soul searing guitar work, the sprawling majesty of ‘Master Of Past And Present’, the terrifying magnificence of ‘A Requiem For The Bloodborn’; all mark Black Mass Ritual as a debut of immense, unquestionable potency.
With this album Formicarius have ignited a black flame which will consume the metal world.
Ample warning was given and now there is no place to run...it’s time to burn.

SHADOWFLAG –  “THE DELUSION MACHINE “
Genre: Poetic Black Metal
For fans of: Satyricon | Imperium Dekadenz | Blut Aus Nord
Shadowflag were never like the others. They have never been just another black metal band; all face paint and fury, blast beats and Lucifer. Shadowflag take the inherent magic of black metal and use it to fire their collective imagination, letting the two forces then work together to sculpt something unique and darkly beautiful. The robust riffs of thrash, the melancholy splendour of doom, the spirit and energy of pure metal, all of these elements have been seduced into opening their veins and bleeding their essence into the pitch black elixir of Shadowflag’s music, adding depth and substance to the shadows. For their first, self-titled album, Shadowflag wove their musical threads through the backdrop of an epic poem and this poetic heart is still the force that pumps the lifeblood through their music...
The band’s second album, The White Grave, released in 2015, was inspired by the stories told by the abandoned and forgotten street children of the world and refined Shadowflag’s matchless blend of blackened metal, poetry and enthralling soundscapes...all of which has lead us to today, to The Delusion Machine. Built upon the premise that humanity’s existence is essentially, terrifyingly empty and without purpose The Delusion Machine is Shadowflag’s greatest achievement to date. Recorded at Hellfire Studios with the assistance of Ajeet Gill (Memoriam, Hellbastard, Sacrilege etc), this third album sees the Shadowflag entity becoming something more frightening and yet more enticing and entrancing than ever before. Driven forward with added intensity by the rhythmic power of Anaal Nathrakh’s live drummer, Anil Carrier, songs like the bleakly brilliant ‘The Brutality’ reach incredible artistic heights.
There are always bold claims made when a band releases their latest album, but when you’re lost in the desperate darkness of ‘The Inevitability’, or tasting the distillation of nightmares ‘Within The Blood Dream’ you’ll understand that Shadowflag have become something very special indeed. Darker than the night sky, Shadowflag are building a celestial kingdom of their own within the black metal firmament.

ODIUM – “ AS THE WORLD TURNS BLACK”
High Class melodic Thrash Attack!
In 2018 the Frankfurt based ODIUM will celebrate its 25th anniversary. Reason enough after their last album "The Science Of Dying" from the year 2014 to the bring a new album to the masses! The german metal hammer honors the Quintett once with the words "Odium belong to the best what the German underground scene has to offer". With their now tenth release and eighth longplayer, the Hesse are now ready to underline this sentence impressively!
 "As The World Turns Black" is undoubtedly the musical highlight of their work. Nine heavy projectiles have the four guys and the girl in their luggage, to celebrate their catchy and yet sophisticated metal, which is stylistically oriented between thrash and power, and blow them the listener around the ears. Odium prove to the world that even after 25 years of band history, that they are still not a part of the old guard. On the occasion of their forthcoming jubilee next year, the band also announced some surprises.
 The album was recorded and produced under the direction of Martin Buchwalter in the well-known Gernhart Studio (a.o. Tankard, SuidAkrA). Björn Goosses / Killustrations is responsible for the cover art, which interprets the album title very well. With a new labe the year 2017 knows mainly one direction for the band: Full ride ahead!
Ready for some grinding death metal madness from Italy? The third album of HAEMOPHAGUS entitled “STREAM OF SHADOWS” is out on vinyl now!
The ceaseless activity of this Italian band forged their inevitable strength: Merging the legacy of the old gods that started this rumbling noise back in the eighties and nineties in a filthy pot and flavouring this with conterminal ideas of tumours that grew close to our gory favourites. You’ll get enthralling work on the string section fortified by pounding drums as fundament for horrific voices from the other side. Perpetuated on the waxy mass of all our desires, ennobled by a lyric insert, poster and free digital download this release is an addictive transgression!
The album is available on 400x black and 100x dark green vinyl.

ENEPSIGOS INKS DEAL WITH OSMOSE PRODUCTIONS : With their debut full-length album "Plague of Plagues"  having been released at the beginning of the year on Drakkar Productions, and with work progressing steadily on the follow up, Black Metallers ENEPSIGOS have inked a two -album deal with Osmose Productions.
ENEPSIGOS was formed in the summer of 2016 by V.I.T.H.R, otherwise known as Doedsadmiral, the founder and frontman of NORDJEVEL, SVARTELDER and DOEDSVANGR, who, like ENEPSIGOS, are all relatively new bands,  but whose lineups are composed of hugely experienced musicians, drawn from some of the best known exponents of Black Metal.  For ENEPSIGOS, V.I.T.H.R has been able to call on the services of former SARKOM guitarist Straff and drummer Thorns,  known for his work with BLUT AUS NORD, DEATHROW, FIDES INVERSA, FROSTMOON ECLISPE and DARVAZA amongst others.
With its roots firmly entrenched in the traditions of early Black Metal, ENEPSIGOS' music is dark and brutal, with ritualistic undertones,  and has been described in the press as having a "vicious intensity".  The, as yet to be titled, follow up to "Plague of Plagues", whose drums have already been recorded, promises more of the same darkness.
Commenting on the decision to sign with Osmose, V.I.T.H.R had this to say:  "It was a natural progression to a bigger label who could take us further along the road.  I already knew how Osmose worked, because NORDJEVEL is signed with them, and it has been a close collaboration, with everyone having an input and exchanging ideas.  It's a very productive way to work as far as I'm concerned".  
 More information about ENEPSIGOS can be found on the band's Facebook page at
   https://www.facebook.com/EnepsigosOfficial/
"Plague of Plagues" can be heard on Bandcamp at   http://drakkar-productions-official.bandcamp.com/album/enepsigos-plague-of-plagues

Lavadome Productions has inked a deal with Australian cataclysmic Death Metal force ESKHATON for the release of band's third album entitled OMEGALITHEOS
The Omegalitheos phenomenon will exhibit powerful 14 songs of psycho violence brought to levels above its predecessors.
You can now listen to unmixed and unmastered samples of Omegalitheos. This is just the hint of what's to come. The cover and the force of the finished songs shall be revealed soon. Expect nothing but TOTAL DEATH.

From Kill-town with hate... Denmark's UNDERGANG will release its newest album later this month on Dark Descent Records. MISANTROPOLOGI marks the band's fourth - and most devastating - full-length to date. 
Following the album's release, UNDERGANG will invade the U.S. for the month-long 'Make America Death Again' tour with California's NECROT (dates listed below).
For a taste of the blood to spill, Decibel Magazine has posted the premiere of album track  "Skåret I Småstykker." The song is now playing  HERE.
Dark Descent Records will release Misantropologi  June 23 on CD and digital formats. The vinyl edition will come via Me Saco Un Ojo Records. Pre-order the album now at  darkdescentrecords.bandcamp.com
Filthy. Disgusting. Heavy-as-fuck. Downtuned. Rotten. Foul stenched. These are just some of the words UNDERGANG have been associated with since their debut album back in 2010.  Undergang's new album Misantropologi isn't just cementing those assessments but actually adds to it groove and even more filth.  
Recorded last year at Earhammer studios in Oakland (with Greg Wilkinson who recorded their previous album) immediately after their month-long US tour with label mates SPECTRAL VOICE, Misantropologi represents the first recording with their newest member Sam Osborne from FUNEBRARUM.  These sewer-bred bastards fourth full-length is once again the antithesis of all of those who wish to bring death metal back to the sunlight. 
With vocals reaching insane low-depths unheard since the glorious days of the early Finnish scene (no wonder the last track is subtitled 'Tribute to Disgrace'!) that reek of putrefaction à la early CARCASS lyrics still in their native Danish, sludgy and primitive riffing and to-the-point songs, this is as dark and brutish as it can be. Nearly 30 minutes of audio horror once again mixed and mastered by CRUCIAMENTUM's Dan Lowndes.

Anders Pedersen - Drums
Sam Osborne - Bass
David Mikkelsen- Guitars and vocals

Crusted severed toes nailed to walls; humans covered head to toe in needles administering horrific psychoactive chemicals; an infants head being turned to apple sauce on a kitchen counter's edge - these are only fragments of the surreal and vicious stories told on SCALPEL's Methods to Delusion. Wielding chainsaw guitars and sledgehammer percussion, Methods to Delusion brings back a psychedelic element to extreme music, inflicting chaos and sickening truth unto the listener. The album was engineered by Colin Marston (GORGUTS) at Thousand Caves Studios.

Death Metal is a visceral art that is dependent upon the extreme dedication of its loyal fans. We have no other purpose but to deliver a version of this art to those same fans like us, whose lives have been claimed by the likes of SUFFOCATION, CARCASS, and DEATH. It is in this vein that we construct our own brutal dirges, devoid of genre restriction and eager to explore the darker realms of music.
SCALPEL is a four-piece band hailing from various cesspools in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Guitarists Manny Egbert and Taylor Brennan assume dual vocal duties layered on top of blistering guitars; Matt Bellows belches deafening low end proficiency on the bass guitar, and Chip Fay thunders behind the drum set, collectively driving the chaos that is the

Hi! We are Ukrainian merciless MetalPunk horde SPIKERS and we are looking for a label to release our debut album!
The deal we are looking for is the label who will manufacture and distributeour CD. We are interested in any deals without our financial participation because wedo not have extra funds after album recording and etc. You can pre-listen album here - https://spikers.bandcamp.com/album/in-coffins
Band was formed in 2015 by ex-members of "Marauder", Alexander and Ruslan, and member of "Warwar", Paul (who writes the lyrics and performed vocal parts on "In coffins" record). 
Spikers was planed like studio project, but after couple rehearsals guys start to think about to record some songs and give some shows. 
When records were done by trio (Ruslan, Alexander and Paul), named "In coffins" and released in 2016, there was no complete line up for live gigs. 
That's why guys from "Anabios", Bogdan and Eugene,  were invited to "Spikers". After that line up was formed:
Vox - Bogdan
Guitar - Alexandr
Bass guitar - Eugene
Drums - Ruslan
With this line up Spikers gave their own show in January 27, 2017, in Kiev and then prepared for spring tour through 6 ukrainian cities. 
One of these shows (May 13, 2017) passed in company of bands like Skull Fist (Canada) and Bastardizer (Australia), who visited Kiev in their Eastern Europe tour. 
Spikers are looking for label now and recording their new stuff for a next release.

Es ist Juni, das Wetter hat sich auf (einen mitteleuropäischen) Sommer eingestellt und natürlich darf auch beim Grillen oder Ausspannen die passende musikalische Unterstreichung nicht fehlen. Glücklicherweise gibt es an guter Musik eine scheinbare Unendlichkeit.
Und falls man doch mal ratlos ist, was als nächstes durch die Boxen dröhnen soll - wir haben da was. Also rausgehen, reinhören und genießen.
AMPLIFIED HATE BRINGEN MIT IHREM VIERTEN STUDIOALBUM CROSSROADS“ BERG UND TAL ZUM BEBEN!
Der Scheideweg zwischen Aggression und Alpenglühen liegt im Chiemgau: Genau dort, wo die Hütte brennt. Und wo es sich seit zehn Jahren ausgejodelt
hat. Wo wütende Gangshouts von den Bergen hallen, druckvolle Riffs durch die Täler rauschen und es knallt, im Wald: Willkommen in der Heimat von
AMPLIFIED HATE!
Seit 2007 bringt die fünfköpfige Hardcore-Urgewalt die Szene zum Beben – und es rappelt weit über die bayrischen Landesgrenzen hinaus. So legte das Quintett inzwischen volle drei Studioalben und eine Vinyl-Single vor und teilte die Bühne bereits mit Sick Of It All, Madball, Terror, Hatebreed, H2O oder Agnostic Front, um nur einige zu nennen. Gscheiter Grinsefaktor, Mitgrölpotential und zünftige Nackenschmerzen? Garantiert! Mit dem zehnten Bandjubiläum wird’s Zeit für ein viertes Album: „CROSSROADS“ heißt das neue Werk, das am 30.06.2017 (VÖ) bei Deafground Records erscheint.
Zwölf Tracks, vor deren Wucht jeder Wildbach neidisch zum Rinnsal wird! Wütende Shouts, mächtig strömende Riffs, treibende Beats und ein drückender
Groove, gewürzt mit fetten Metalelementen und heftigen Groupshouts sind die Zutaten, aus denen AMPLIFIED HATE ihren ganz eigenen, süffig-satten Hardcoresound brauen. Ihre Texte widmen die Oberbayern dabei einem Themencocktail zwischen Medienkritik, Seelenleben, Zwischenmenschlichem, Durchhalteparolen, Drogen und Protestsong. Und auch die Heimatliebe kommt nicht zu kurz: Denn bei aller Wut auf die Welt – dahoam ist sie eben doch schön!
So geil das auch alles klingt, gucken ist halt auch schön. Und das wissen die Jungs natürlich, darum haben sie diese Woche ihr neues Video veröffentlicht.
Aber es ist nicht nur schön anzusehen sondern hat auch eine klare Botschaft. Schaut euch also AMPLIFIED HATE FT. MATZO TLUF - IHR SEID NICHT
DAS VOLK auf HARDCORE WORLDWIDE an. Ist fett und wichtig.
WATCH OUT STAMPEDE! GEHEN MIT ANCHORS AND HEARTS AUF TOUR!
Die fantastisch tollen WATCH OUT STAMPEDE! trauen sich mal wieder unter Leute. Zusammen mit ANCHORS & HEARTS Machen sich die Nordlichter im Herbst auf das dunkle Deutschland zu erleuchten. Im November könnt ihr diese super Combo in Berlin, Köln, München, Saalfeld, Osnabrück und natürlich in Hamburg live sehen. Unbedingt Karten sichern.
VIDEO KILLED THE RADIO STAR
Die Jungs von AND THERE WILL BE BLOOD zeigen sich mal wieder und bringen mit „Belial“ ein neues Video raus. Die fünf Osnabrücker haben sich auf den Bühnen dieser Welt rumgetrieben und fleißig die Kamera drauf gehalten. Daraus entstand ein wunderbares Video aus Livemitschnitten, die den powervollen Song mit ebenso energischen Bildern unterlegen. Schaut es an, es macht Bock auf mehr.
BRUTAL VISION 3: DER KAMPF UM DEN SLOT!
Das Rennen ist eröffnet: Seit dem 01. Juni läuft das Online-Voting um einen der 10 begehrten Slots auf unserem neuen Samplers BRUTAL VISION VOL. 3!
Aus insgesamt 317 Bewerbungen, die uns aus der halben Welt erreichten, wählte unsere Jury 20 Favoriten in die Abstimmungsrunde. Musikalische Scheuklappen?!
Fehlanzeige! Der Genremix im Voting fällt schön bunt aus: So ist die Hardcore-Fraktion mit APACHE aus Marseilles, BACKSIDE aus dem süditalienischen
Altamura und ONKT aus Alkmaar in den Niederlanden nicht nur international, sondern auch schlagkräftig vertreten.
Auch die Metalcore-Front ist mit den progressiven MIND LIKE HURRICANES aus Olpe, den Münchnern TOWERS & BRIDGES und TRAGEDY OF MINE aus dem Osnabrücker Raum stark besetzt.
DEVOTION aus Recklinghausen, NEVERLAND IN ASHES aus Köln und die Rheinländer NIOR halten in Sachen Post-Hardcore / Modern Metal die Fahne hoch, BATTLECAT aus Paderborn, die Hallertauer PRIOR THE
END, SAMARAH aus Saarbrücken und WE SAW WORLDS COLLIDE aus Augsburg vertreten den Alternative Metal.
Und auch Traditionalisten kommen auf ihre Kosten, denn mit den post-apokalyptischen DYSTOPOLIS aus Bremen und den Bielefeldern HYDRA’S FATE treten gleich zwei starke Powermetal-Bands an.
Doch da die Metalwelt bekanntermaßen recht vielfältig ist, gibt es im BRUTAL VISION Voting noch einiges mehr zu entdecken: BINGENINJA aus Toronto
in Kanada zum Beispiel, die musikalisch wirklich in keine Schublade passen und die Jury mit ihrer Doom-Nummer „Murdered“ überzeugen konnten. Oder REBELS + RIVALS aus Berlin, die beweisen, wie fresh und zeitgemäß NuMetal auch dieser Tage noch sein kann.
SEXX ZÖMBIE aus Mainz hingegen bestechen schon allein durch die unwiderstehliche Attitude ihrer Schweinerock-Schelle „Toy Boy“: Baby, that’s Rock’n Roll! Wer’s brachial und schnell mag, sollte bei CHAOS ADDICT aus reinhören: Die Thrashmetaller aus Slavonski Brod in Kroatien fahren nicht nur schwere musikalische Geschütze auf, sondern haben in ihrem Votingtrack „Solitude“ auch noch Feature-Unterstützung von Stargast Björn Strid (Soilwork).
Und zu guter Letzt ist mit den Rheinländern LIKE A MESS auch der Alternative Rock vertreten. Neugierig geworden? Für einen ersten Höreindruck sind alle Votingtracks auf Soundcloud verfügbar.
Gut zwei Wochen nach Votingbeginn lassen sich bereits erste Tendenzen erahnen: Klarer Spitzenreiter sind PRIOR THE END, die mit knapp 200 Stimmen
vor den aktuell Zweitplatzierten LIKE A MESS liegen. Den dritten Platz verteidigen CHAOS ADDICT. Dahinter liefern sich DEVOTION (derzeit Vierte) und SEXX ZÖMBIE (Fünfte) seit Tagen ein spannendes Kopf-an-Kopf-Rennen, bei dem mal die eine, mal die andere Band die Nase vorn hat. Aber das Verfolgerfeld ist dicht besetzt – und holt auf!
Bis zum 24. Juni, Punkt 22 Uhr kann unter www.brutalvision.de weiterhin täglich für jeweils drei Bands abgestimmt werden. Das Rennen ist also noch längst
nicht entschieden! Übrigens verlosen wir unter allen Abstimmenden drei schöne Überraschungsbundles.
Mitmachen lohnt sich also! Die Gewinner – sowohl des Votings, als auch der Verlosung – werden wir direkt nach Votingschluss am 24.06. in der
nächsten „DEAFGROUND LIVE“-Sendung mit HORSEMAN und DEVOTION (Livestream von 21-23 Uhr auf www.facebook.com/deafgroundrecords) bekanntgeben. Einschalten!!

Germany's modern death metallers SUBLEVEL have released their debut EP "BORDERS" on April 1st, 2017.
"Borders" combines every element of metal that each member likes. Thus, a creative piece of music came to life that doesn't quite fit into a certain genre. For convenience or an easier description they call their music modern (Death) Metal. 
"Borders" consists of 8 songs, 3 of which are intros/outros. Sublevel have decided to separate them from the actual songs for an easy listening experience in playlists and such.
The EP is available on every platform (Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Deezer, Youtube, Amazon etc.).

Dark Essence Records have today announced details of the upcoming album from one of their latest signings, ATROX.  Set for release on the 8th September, and titled "MONOCLE", this will be the sixth full-length studio album from the veteran Norwegians.
With "Monocle", the first album from the band since 2008's "Binocular", ATROX are back stronger than ever, having fine tuned their sound so that what was once an atmospheric mix of Death and Doom Metal has become much more progressive, experimental and industrial.  It is an album that shows a darker side to the band, with more epic and atmospheric elements than before.  Consolidating the unique ATROX sound within the album are catchy and upbeat sections. 
Artwork for "Monocle" is by Rune Folgerø and Erik Paulsen. 
Tracklisting is as follows:
1. Mass
2. Vacuum
3. Heat
4. Finger
5. Suicide Days
6. For We Are Many
7. Movie
8. Target
Today's ATROX lineup comprises Rune Folgerø on Vocals,  viNd on Guitars, Rune Sørgård on Guitars & Technology, Tor Arne Helgesen on Drums and Erik Paulsen on Bass, and they recently had some very interesting things to say about "Monocle":
"Monocle" is our darkest album so far. During the process of creating and recording it we explored, and were exposed to, our darker selves, and what we encountered during this process almost killed us.  It left us in a dystopian vacuum and all worn out, but with one hell of a piece of music to present to the world.
"Musically speaking "Monocle" contains poisons that'll blind you, and poisons that'll open your eyes.
As William Gibson says in his novel  "Neuromancer“: "The future is already here. It’s just unevenly distributed.”
More information about ATROX can be found on the band's website at   http://www.atrox.no/   or on Facebook at   https://www.facebook.com/atrox.no

DEPHOSPHORUS  - 'IMPOSSIBLE ORBITS'
Genre
- Astrogrind
Release Date - June 15th, 2017
Record Label - Selfmadegod (Poland)
For fans of - CHERUBS, TERRORIZER, REGURGITATE, INSISION with a black metal touch.
“CALVIN: If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently.
HOBBES: How so?
CALVIN: Well, when you look into infinity, you realize that there are more important things than what people do all day.”
This quote from Bill Watterson’s iconic comic strip “Calvin and Hobbes”, resumes accurately DEPHOSPHORUS’ intentions.
With 6 vinyl releases spanning from 2011 to 2015, the Athenians are embarked on a cosmic quest. Their concept and aesthetics draw influences from cosmology, astronomy and science fiction literature, as well as the associated sociopolitical and existential repercussions.
Being impossible to describe their music style by using one or two genre references, they have chosen to call it “astrogrind”.
“Impossible Orbits” is DEPHOSPHORUS’ 3rd album and their darker and more violent effort to date – both musically and lyrically. Its 9 tracks clocking at under 30’, see them return to a more condensed form of expression, not unlike their critically acclaimed “Axiom” debut mini-LP. 
The similarities with the latter do not stop there, as Panos Alexiadis is again on board handling the live electronics and putting an extra eerie touch to the record’s atmosphere.
“Impossible Orbits” has been recorded and mixed analogically at Unreal Studios. The artwork has been hand drawn by Viral Graphics.
Notorious grindcore label from Poland, Selfmadegod Records, will release CD and cassette version on June 15th 2017. Digital copies will be available directly though the band’s Bandcamp page. A vinyl edition will follow later this year.

ITALIAN DOOMSTERS RITI OCCULTI ANNOUNCE NEW VIDEO FOR THE TRACK "ASSIAH"
Riti Occulti have published a brand new video for the track "Assiah", which is taken off the band's latest full-length "TETRAGRAMMATON", released on October 2016 through Triton's Orbit.
The band comments: "This is a song marked by an epic pattern, mixed with an evocative oriental mood which flows into a psychedelic experience. 'Assiah' is the last of the four spiritual worlds of the Kabbalah. Representing purely material existence, it is known as the World of Action. Pay tribute to the 70’s horror b-movie aesthetics, the video it’s a metaphor in esoteric key of the material corruption by the modern era to the detriment of the human spiritual dimension. The main character indeed, starring Ladyanna Silva, will sell her soul to the 'Sect' in return for the fame."
The video is available in two versions: censored and uncensored. Watch "Assiah" below:

SCHATTENMANN'S new distrolist 02-17 is here!
Behold… it's the NEW distro list!!! Yeah I know, it took me quite a while to get it done but good things take time to make, don't they? Apart from that I had to move all of my stuff to build up a new, improved storage with plenty of space for more aggressive expansion!
But I promise you it was worth the wait 'cause I got plenty of stuff for you people, like new fanzine titles such as Posthuman, Forgotten Path, Morbid Visions, Slowly We Rot, Terozin, Reborn From Ashes (including the "Mexican Underground" special issue!), Arise, Troubled Sleep, In Search Of Pure Negativity or V.I.T.R.I.O.L., just to name a few.
Apart from that there's the usual update on second hand zines I recently found here and there like Hellpike, Horrible Eyes, Spellbook or Hate Meditation + the NEW section with fanzines written in spanish language! So if YOU got spanish written zines for sale or trade, feel free to drop me a note so we can work something out as I would like to distribute more of those in the near future.
Do not forget to take a closer look at the music stuff I picked up for you too, like the great looking Blood Picture Disc 7" EP "Recognize Yourself"; the new, mind-blowing Hell Desecrator album for fans of early Sarcofago; Merciless' classic debut "The Awakening" on quality pro tapes; the improved rerelease of Mortem's "Demon Tales" LP; heavy fucking Lüger and Vociferian tapes released through Von Frost Records or Kandar's grinding, blood splattering debut album "Groovy" (for fans of Evil Dead!).
Still reading? Good! Let me poke you a little more by mentioning some of my own, NEW RELEASES like the official reprint of DEADHEAD #6, a massive 152 page pamphlet including plenty of bands and stories and interviews and what not! If that still doesn't satisfy you check out the NO GOD RHETORIC / KANDAR split 7" EP including 10 minutes of hyper ventilating Fastcore versus bone grinding horror Grindcore from the Czech Republic - on orange and green vinyl (yum!). It's always worth a shot so give it a try, willya?

The band's second effort features 5 long tracks with a total duration of over 55 minutes of introspective haze:
1. Damnatio Memoriae
2. Alone With My Thoughts
3. Demise
4. Silence In Sable Acrotism
5. Tomorrow
Synaptic Veil was mixed and mastered in London by Daniel Neagoe, known from his work in bands like Eye of Solitude, Clouds, and recently also Shape of Despair, and features the special guest appearance of Kostas Panagiotou from Pantheist. The album video trailer is online here:  
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NkB8Enq6cQ
The original cover artwork for Synaptic Veil is signed by talented local artist Maria Elisabeta Cucu.Here’s what the band had to say about their latest effort, Synaptic Veil: “our latest effort to date, is also our most articulate endeavour so far. The veil here is ambiguous and double-sided: “objective” reality imposes a layer of limitations onto our mental landscape; but our inner, “subjective” reality lays a veil of concepts on top of the physical reality as a coping mechanism.”

RESURRECTED is a brutal death metal Band from Germany. The new album simply named “RESURRECTED” defines death metal in a new, more refined direction. On the other hand, they still keep their path that had been taken many times. Lyrically, it´s traditional RESURRECTED´s handwriting dealing with death, gore, violence while going deeper to the dark realms of human existence. The album is well balanced, that covers the total range between slower, threatening groovy parts up to the blast attacks. Recorded by Thomas Granzow at Catacomb Productions, mixed and mastered by Jorg Uken at Soundlodge Recording Studio, Rhauderfen (Germany). Pure brutal, and impressive death metal!

Pre-order The Essence of Time Matches No Flesh:   https://madrost.bandcamp.com/album/the-essence-of-time-matches-no-flesh
On The Essence of Time Matches No Flesh, MADROST has found its definitive sound, one that is much more dynamic and darker than previous album Into the Aquatic Sector. The forthcoming album picks up where Into the Aquatic Sector left off and takes the sound to a whole new, previously unexplored level. Vocalist/guitarist Tanner Poppitt comments: "I wanted a broader scope to work with and have the listener think about what they are listening to." Last but certainly not least, Tony Koehl's (The Black Dahlia Murder, Putrid Pile, Malignancy, etc) cover art also represents a huge step forward for the band, as his artistic interpretations tie everything together into a cohesive whole.
The Essence of Time Matches No Flesh was mastered by Alan Douches of West West Side Studios, and mixed and recorded by Mark Rivas of Rivas Studios. The album was produced by Mark Rivas and Tanner Poppitt.
A lyric video for the album's opening track, "Eyes of the Deceit," is available for head banging at https://youtu.be/9CcLno1wnb4

Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide -  we're happy to present you with the release of Violate and Control - the second astonishing full-length album by enigmatic US black metal/noise/industrial abusers AMERICAN (stylized lowercase).
Hailing from Richmond, Virgina, and with influences ranging from The Body, Leviathan, Ministry, and Skinny Puppy, to Craft, Godlflesh, and Blut Aus Nord, american play a disembodied, torturous and completely fucking annihilated blend of sludge, black metal, industrial, and harsh noise - creating a wall of face-tearing noise that oozes of almost implausible negativity. In recent years the likes of Noisey/Vice have claimed that american’s noisy industrial black metal “takes you into a world of pain”, and makes you “beg to whoever you believe in to kill you”, with CVLT Nation explaining that their music “advocates suicide”, and Invisible Oranges further elaborating that their music “is blessed with a haunting aura thick with loathing”.
Now the band present us with ten new wretched tracks of astonishing sonic abuse that knows no end. A work of absolutely magnificent sonic abhorrence that coerces together the abyssal darkness of black metal bands like Leviathan and Ash Borer, the earth-shaking noise abuse of Bastard Noise and The Body, and the glacial magnificence of blackened noise sound sculptors like Sutekh Hexen, Locrian, and Wold. 
CVLT Nation is now streaming the first track extrapolated from this visionary and wretched work - check out the noise-infested black metal delirium of Amorous and Subdued

DEATH ALWAYS WINS, the forthcoming sophomore album from Melodic Death/Thrash quartet DEAD ASYLUM, is now streaming in its entirety, courtesy of Brave Words! Go forth and stream with impunity at  this location .
DEAD ASYLUM will release Death Always Wins on June 2. On the follow-up to 2013 debut General Carnage, the Vancouver, Canada band has sharpened the songwriting to a fine point and bolstered its established muscular attack with a harder rhythmic punch and an even deadlier arsenal of riffs!  
A lyric video for the new single is available now at  https://youtu.be/kCQeUqu6ET4. The band previously released the official video for "Forgotten Sacrifice," which can be viewed at this location.
With an unexpected combination of thrash and melodeath elements reminiscent of the Gothenburg Sound (AT THE GATES, ARCH ENEMY, et al), DEAD ASYLUM's Death Always Wins is one killer listen!  The songs on Death Always Wins range from thrashy headbangers, to technical compositions, and chantable, heavy metal anthems. While it might seem like their sound covers the spectrum of metal, everything is tied together by brutal dual vocals and melodic leads. Lyrical themes include revolution and political uprising, the apocalypse, and-as the band name alludes-twisted facets of the human psyche. The band's famously intense live shows are about to get fiercer when the new material is left beaten and bloodied on the stage!
Death Always Wins was tracked at Jam Factory Studios in Port Coquitlam, BC; recorded and edited by Roger Mowat; and mix/mastered by Chris Holmes.  Pierre-Alain (3mmi Design) was responsible for the album art.
Drummer Samantha Landa in many ways defines DEAD ASYLUM's unbridled energy and inability to ever just stand still. Landa performed with Brazilian Thrashers and Napalm Records artist NERVOSA for three months throughout North America and Europe in 2016, including on a tour package that also featured DESTRUCTION, FLOTSAM & JETSAM, and ENFORCER. And all the while ran her online business from the road! Landa even served as a Pool Girl on the annual 70000 Tons of Metal cruise.
DEAD ASYLUM will hit the road for the "American SaniTOURium" Tour, beginning in August. Confirmed dates thus far can be found below.
Dead Asylum is:
Mike Lister - Vocals/Rhythm Guitar

Born in 2015 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA, by founding members Connor Randlett and Bryan Bosch, Serpentshrine was created with the hopes of blending melodic, minor harmonies with the rawness of black metal.  The addition of high pitched vocals, atmospheric compositions, and death metal intensity bred a unique sound unlike others.  Their debut album Besetting the Altar, was released in January 2017, but this is only the beginning, with material and concepts for future albums already in the works.  Serpentshrine is poised to push the boundaries of genre-defining music.

The song was produced by Robert Kukla of Studio Haga, mixed and mastered by Christian Svedin. 'Grinder' was simultaneously released as a video brought to life by René U. Valdes and his Greenworks Television, together with a great crew of talented makeup and gore artists.

These guys have been mandatory listening for the best part of 30 years now and are still at the top of their game.  Sharing the stage with the guys is a huge honour and we look forward to pounding some heads and getting the brutality started on the night with some of our obnoxious death-grind.

Italian Thrash/Death Killing Machine METHEDRAS will embark on the Subverting Brazil Tour in June. After successful tours in  the U.S and Canada in February and Russia this past August, the Italian killers decided to land in South America for their first time ever and tour Brazil in order to close the worldwide promotional cycle for System Subversion before entering the studio to record forthcoming new album The Ventriloquist.
For this special occasion the band will be joined by two great session members:  Esben "Esse" Hansen from mighty Danish thrash-deathsters HATESPHERE, and Mario Giannini from the Italian blacksters COLD RAVEN, who will take care of vocals and drums duties, respectively.
Watch the "Brawl" Official Video at  https://youtu.be/1Oa22YftQqg
METHEDRAS undertook their personal warpath against everything and everyone, an endless spiral of revenge, madness and suffering in order to claim the ultimate System Subversion and break the wall of hypocrisy! A deep voyage into the hugest sacrifices to get a fake freedom, the mankind blame for an imminent nuclear disaster, the last standing against misery and poorness, the strongest answer to our worst nightmares and an intimate hope for a final resurrection, without forgetting what is really important for every one of us: true friendship, good feelings, human dignity and mental sanity... the sensational comeback of the one and only Italian Thrash-Death-Killing-Machine, taking no prisoners at all!
Hi – Chris and Paul from Imperative PR here, with news of another fantastic addition to our ranks here at Imperative. We are very pleased to welcome Texan metallers WOLVENGUARD for the campaign to promote the physical release of their debut EP, ELEMENTAL RECLAMATION.
The members of Wolvenguard are all seasoned campaigners, having cut their teeth with bands like symphonic black metal kings Vesperian Sorrow, death/thrash savages Cerebral Desecration and morose doom lords In Oblivion – but together they have found something special.  As if they each carried within themselves the seeds of Wolvenguard, seeds that could only grow and flourish once they were all connected as one. Wolvenguard’s music connects back to long gone days when myth and magic mixed with blood and honour and cries to ancient gods were heard above the clash of steel on steel. Within the brooding thunder of their songs is a pathway for the spirit to travel, a key to unlock the imagination. With its vital vibrancy, soul stirring melodies and rush of sheer, unadulterated power, Elemental Reclamation offers an escape from mundanity and triviality, a gateway to greatness.
The three songs which unite under the banner of Elemental Reclamation fit seamlessly together, forging a triumvirate of steel that will have metal fans of all hues and allegiances hungry for more. These battle hardened fighters have connected so completely with the essence of metal, with a spirit that binds all the myriad genres of extreme metal. With evocative vocals, surging riffs, guitar melodies that ensnare the heart and fire the imagination and an ever present, rumbling, irresistible force and power, all captured perfectly by the mixing and mastering skills of J-F Dagenais (Kataklysm), Wolvenguard will speak to metal warriors around the world. Previously only available as a digital download, fan demand has seen Elemental Reclamation given the physical release it clearly merits.
Open your ears, open your hearts, to the battle cry of Wolvenguard!

SINISTER - GODS OF THE ABYSS
When Sinister split up in 2003 vocalist (and former drummer) Aad and Sinister guitarist & bass player Alex Paul wanted to continue playing death metal somehow. They started the new band No Face Slave. The songs they wrote were so close to Sinister so they restarted SINISTER together with drummer Paul Beltman (Weapons To Hunt, ex Judgement Day, Supreme Pain). During 2004 and 2005 they recorded 4 demo tracks. These four tracks formed the SINISTER demo 2005. That demo led to a renewed record deal with Nuclear Blast records. And up till now seven full lenghts studio albums from 2006 up till now. Coverart by Roberto Toderico (Asphyx, Soulburn). The booklet contains rare pics and an exculsive in depth interview done by Pim Blankenstein (ex Lords of Metal journalist and Officium Triste vocalist) with founding member Aad Kloosterwaard.
BLOOD - MENTAL CONFLICTS
Blood was formed by Bernd Eisenstein, Taki, Geer and Radtke in March 1986 in Germany as a fun-noisecore band. They recorded 3 demos during this time. In June of 1987 Ventilator joined Blood on drums and the songs got more structured and the music became serious. In 1989 they released their debut album Impulse To Destroy on the American cult label Wild Rags. In 1992 they signed a 2 album deal with German 1MF recordes.  Finally the fourth BLOOD album MENTAL CONFLICTS is now  re-issued. Originally released in 1994.

BLACK METALLERS THE 3RD ATTEMPT BEGIN WORK ON SOPHOMORE FULL-LENGTH ALBUM.  FIRST STUDIO PHOTOS RELEASED :
With their debut album "Born in Thorns" having hit the streets on Dark Essence Records in the Autumn of 2015,  Norwegian Black Metallers THE 3rd ATTEMPT entered the Strand Studio in Oslo on the 26th May to begin work on their sophomore full-length album, with a view to it being released towards the end of the year.  
THE 3rd ATTEMPT was formed by former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex EMPEROR, ex BLOOD RED THRONE) and BloodPervertor (APOSTASY, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex NEONGOD), who, feeling they had become stale in their roles, quit the iconic band and decided to form a project that would once again ignite their enthusiasm and creativity.  Vocalist Ødemark (ex-MIDNATTSVREDE, ex-NECROCAVE) joined the lineup  following online auditions that saw him beat a plethora of both experienced and new vocalists from all over the world for the role.  Drummer Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) whose performance as a live session drummer for THE 3rd ATTEMPT impressed everyone, was quickly added to the lineup on a permanent basis.
Ten songs for the new album have been completed, and the drum tracks have already been recorded by Tybalt, who had this to say about what fans could expect from the new material: " There's a lot more going on than on the last album, and it's much faster.  We are definitely beginning to forge something that is truly our own.  It's dark, it's filthy and it's mofo rock n roll".
Ødemark, who writes the lyrics for the band, gave an insight into the subject matter: "The new album is about self destruction from an introspective point of view (inside-out), and is not so much about suicide as it is about the need to seek pain, both mental and emotional, in order to develop as a person.   Song by song, a new destructive facet of life is seen, systematically deconstructing each aspect of the human ego.  It's about evolving through real suffering, and accepting the fact that you are insignificant.  Basically it illustrates how little I care about you.  So, in a nutshell, it's just about the truth" More information about THE 3rd ATTEMPT can be found on the official Facebook page at  https://www.facebook.com/the3rdattemptofficial or on their website at  https://3rdattemptband.wordpress.com
