Danish sludge metallers GRAVA are gearing up for the release of their new album "WEIGHT OF A GOD", which will be coming out on November 28th 2022 via Aesthetic Death.
Everything Is Noise is now hosting an exclusive premiere of the record. Stream it at https://everythingisnoise.net/premieres/grava-bulk-up-to-throw-the-weight-of-a-god-at-you-with-sludgy-fervor/
For fans of: Neurosis, Celeste, Buried Inside
GRAVA spew forth a maelstrom of angst-ridden, emotive sludge – which emanates from a hardcore foundation and mentality.
Sludge heaviness, hardcore intensity – bleak desperation. Short tracks, that just sound dense, blackened and ugly - which are written and delivered with a real soul – just one that has been emptied of colour and hope. Amidst the blunt brutality there are brief interjections, moments of paradoxical beauty. Soon extinguished.
Every song on the album is an attempt to portray a human being's meeting with death. Inspired by historical narratives but also by happenings closer to the band, actively pursuing those moments through their music and lyrics. The resulting music has been expressive, fragmented and painful - you will find no complete narrative in the lyrics or musical structure, only the bits and pieces of the world.... as seen through the eyes of the dying.
“Weight of a God” is not an easy experience. It takes time to ingest and come to terms with the album. However, anyone who takes the time to become at one with these tracks will discover an album which urges repeated listening.
26.11.2022 News GRAVA LP + MC versions to be released through Danish label VinylTroll.
Hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark – GRAVA only formed in 2020 but feature ex-members of Whelm amongst their skilled personnel.
Tracklist:
01. Waves
02. Bender
03. Crusher

BLINDEAD 23 – „TOWARDS THE DARK „

26.11.2022 News Blindead 23One door closes, and another opens. That’s one way of viewing the evolution of the career of Mateusz 'Havoc' Smierzchalski. Extreme metal fans would recognise the name from classic Behemoth albums such as Thelema.6 or Zos Kia Cultus but it is founding his own act, Blindead, which took Mateusz to the next musical level with albums such as Absence (2013), Affliction XXIX II MXMVI (2010) and Niewiosna (2019). While the band enjoyed success at home and abroad, the time has come for Mateusz to start a new chapter. 
The result is Blindead 23, a new experimental metal band formed by Mateusz, and joined by Roger Öjersson (Katatonia, Tiamat), Patryk Zwolinski (ex-Blindead), Maciej Janas (Ketha), Vinicius Nunes and Pawel Jaroszewicz (Antigama, Obscure Sphinx, ex-Vader, ex-Decapitated).
These musicians of varied, but exceptional, musical backgrounds, are getting together to create something new and fresh. The first taste of the debut album is the lead single “Towards the Dark” with Roger Öjersson’s melancholic, melodic and catchy singing at the forefront. There are many layers to the song, with beautiful guitar lines and heavy bass and drum moments completing the track.  
Mateusz explains the origins of the single and the band: “For the past 2 years I was putting myself together after a suicide attempt caused by a long manic episode which led me to heavy substance abuse. A mixture of therapy, sobriety and treatment brought me back to life both on a personal and creative level. 
“Towards the Dark was born after many hours of phone calls between Roger Öjersson of Katatonia and me during the therapy and rehab I was going through. He was such a good friend and support to me. That's where the inspiration for this band was born.
“A few months later we had a demo of an album written and now here we are releasing the first results of this new artistic path we call Blindead 23 with you.”
Blindead 23’s self-titled debut album is planned for release in the first half of 2023. The single was recorded, and the upcoming album is being recorded, with the Swedish producer David Castillo at his Studio Gröndahl in Stockholm. David is known for his exceptional production on albums by Carcass, Opeth, Katatonia, Leprous, Whitechapel and many more.

ANCIENT MASTERY - “CHAPTER ONE: ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS OF THE DRÄMMARSKOL” & „CHAPTER TWO: THE RESISTANCE“
26.11.2022 News Ancient MasteryLabel: Northern Silence Productions
Release Date: 02-12-2022
Format: Digital, CD
Genre: Melodic Black Metal
Country: Austria
Tracklist:
Chapter One:
1. To Valdura (9:26)
2. The Majesty of Aztara (10:46)
3. The Passage (8:28)
4. The Forest Gate (10:03)
5. The Ballad of Tiga & Az’daerul (8:21)
Chapter Two:
1. Entering Valdura (8:28)
2. City of Broken Dreams (11:26)
3. To the Riverbank (7:30)
4. The Uprising (9:44)
5. Eternal Night (8:07)
6. The Resistance (6:32)
Line-up:
Erech – all Instruments & vocals
Circe – additional female vocals
Founded in late 2020 by sole member Erech to give home to the ancient tales of the mythical realm Valdura, Ancient Mastery delivers Epic/Melodic Black Metal with symphonic undertones. On his albums mastermind Erech combines melodic Black Metal riffing, triumphant synths and folkish tunes with occasional pop aesthesia, which is amplified by the chthonian timbre of his companion Circe.
While “Chapter One” told about a group of adventurers and their travel to distant Valdura, “Chapter Two” focuses on the arrival of Aryun and his companions in that mythical realm. Unexpectedly drawn into a long simmering conflict between the corrupt government and the resistance in Valdura’s capital Tordal, they meet the female resistance leader Tabe who informs them of the plight they just encountered.
For songwriter Erech the six songs on “Chapter Two” are the logical continuation of the music on the debut, with perhaps a bit less overall focus on straightforward melodic Black Metal and instead playing with influences from Power Metal and atmospheric Black Metal sprinkled with classic Folk songwriting. To that end, and more often than on the debut, the throaty, intoxicating voice of Circe takes center stage besides the raspy Black Metal vocals of Erech, and there she truly shines.
Chapter One, originally released on CD by the Chinese label Pest Productions, is now re-released by Northern Silence in a fully enhanced version with new artwork and layout and including the previously unreleased bonus track “The Ballad of Tiga & Az’daerul”.
Both DigiCDs of „Chapter One” and „Chapter Two” come with their own 12-page fold-out poster booklet with the lyrics on one side and a map of the territory on the other.
The vinyl version of „Chapter One” is out concurrently with the CDs, alongside the LP of „The Chosen One”, released on CD by Northern Silence a year ago. The LP of „Chapter Two” will be released some time in 2023.
Chapters One & Two recorded by Erech.

The EP, which is the final release of the Blood Blast Distribution deal, consists of three original studio recordings and a cover of Sepultura's "Dead Embryonic Cells." GORGATRON is currently seeking a new label for release of the band's recently recorded full-length album. Interested parties should contact Cameron.Gorgatron@gmail.com.
GORGATRON's sound is based on a “love of the riff” approach to writing and rooted in the old-school stylings of Death Metal and Thrash, one that comes across loud and clear on Agony Reborn. The EP is a product of what the band has dubbed the “Covid Sessions." As further explained by bassist Cameron Dewald: "We were on track to do a bunch of touring etc to support our last album Pathogenic Automation (2020) but clearly and for obvious reasons that didn’t happen… So instead we stayed as busy as we could in 2020 and 2021, played a few shows and hashed out some new tunes. The cover for 'Dead Embyronic Cells' was originally for Metal Injections Slay At Home series, but we ended up holding onto it and found a suitable home for it on this EP."

DAEVAR – “ DELIRIOUS RITES”
26.11.2022 News DAEVARLabel: The Lasting Dose Records
Release Date: 27-01-2023
Format: Digital, CD, LP
Genre: Heavy-Doom Metal
For fans of : Windhand, Monolord, Black Sabbath, Sleep, Paradise Lost
Country: Germany
Tracklist:
01 Slowshine
02 Bloody Fingers
03 Leila
04 Leviathan
05 Yellow Queen
Line-up:
Pardis Latifi - Bass Guitar & Vocals
Moritz Ermen Bausch - Drums
Caspar Orfgen - Guitars
Guest Vocals on Leviathan by Jan Oberg (Grin / Earth Ship)
DAEVAR are here to shake up the stoner/doom-metal scene with a menacing lo-fi sound and a fresh set of ideals. Fronted by the enigmatic Pardis (bass, vocals) and completed by Caspar (guitars) and Moritz (drums), DAEVAR serves up moody anthems inspired by what really happens in the world, rather than singing about the sweetness of the leaf or spreading eternal gloom. The young trio from Cologne have recorded five atmospheric slow-burners at Hidden Planet Studios with Jan Oberg, who oversaw production and helped the band create a deceptively complex sound. Washed in an ocean of crunchy fuzz, Delirious Rites drowns the listener in a raw conflation of gritty textures and exalting melodies.
Album opener «Slowshine» is an astonishingly raw punch to the ears, ripping open the carefully produced atmospheric opening with the crushing sound of bass and guitar merging together in a haze of lo-finesse. «Leviathan» gives further insight in the intricacy of the DAEVAR sound, opening with a lone crusty guitar glued together by feedback to the elementary tribal drumming of Moritz. Then, like flesh enfolding the talons of an eagle, like a hand clenching the hilt of the sharpened sword, the fuzzy bass grips the raw and gritty guitar, reinforcing it and rendering it powerful.
Driven by this punchy guitar and bass combination, DAEVAR plough through five moody stoner-doom anthems dissecting consequential themes like enforced disappearance, sleep paralysis and female empowerment. The depth of Delirious Rites is ready to unfold itself with songs inspired by the work of political philosopher Thomas Hobbes and quotations from Iranian psychedelic rock anthems from the 70s. Somewhere between Sleep and Paradise Lost this mysterious trio have found a pocket that is completely their own. Like a transmission through the snowy static, like a ghost through the wire, Delirious Rites sees the mysterious hand of DAEVAR reach out to grip the soul of whomever is ripe for the taking.
All songs written & performed by DAEVAR
Recorded at HIDDEN PLANET STUDIO / Berlin

For fans of : Amesoeurs, Arcturus, Deafheaven, Emperor, Enslaved
Country: United States
Tracklist:
Silenced by Thunder
Line-up:
Ryan Dirheimer - Drums
John Harrell - Keyboards
Jason Potts - Guitar / Vocals
Tony Shechtman - Guitar / Vocals
Rich Vogel - Bass Guitar
"I began to visualize Earth from far off in space, wrapped in clouds of humanity's foolish and violent legacy.”
Michigan metalnauts Vesperwynd's third official release Silenced by Thunder marks the first contribution from Jason Potts, who shares guitar and vocal duties with Tony Shechtman.
“I could see all the laughter and joy through history blended in with the suffering and depravity in one block,” Potts explains.
Tony’s clean vocals on the relentless marching verse sound an ominous warning answered by Jason’s snarling declarations on the soaring chorus. The bridge brings a dreamlike scene change evoking Slavic folklore, occult references, and Lynchian mythos.
“This is the vantage point from where the song is sung. It seems ever more likely this isn't going to end well, and this song is a product of mentally preparing for that.”
Silenced by Thunder was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Vesperwynd bassist Rich Vogel at Midi Castle and will be streaming on all major services on 11th November 2022.
Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Rich Vogel at Midi Castle, Grand Rapids Michigan.

We’re proud to announce our partnership with Canadian bestial death metal horde PROPHETIC SUFFERING, a mysterious act whose debut offering - the “DEMONSTRATION MMXXII” four track demo tape - will be unleashed by Sentient Ruin on Friday December 2 2022 for Bandcamp Friday.

The imminent release has been previewed by underground metal blog Last Rites, who in unveiling the track “The Suffering” have also remarked how Prophetic Suffering are “a formidable force to be reckoned with. Grown in secret, presumably at one of Canada’s alleged undisclosed black metal supersoldier labs beneath Edmonton, Alberta, and the band’s demonstration of warfare capabilities makes for a more than capable frontline fighter”. You can check out their feature and stream the track here https://yourlastrites.com/2022/11/15/track-premiere-prophetic-suffering-the-suffering/
26.11.2022 News PROPHETIC SUFFERINThe Canadian bestial death metal tormentors arise from the wretched and famed Edmonton, Alberta extreme metal scene with their debut offering, the "Demonstration MMXXII" demo tape, four tracks, twelve minutes, and twenty seven seconds of absolute war mongering terror. Spewn from same geographical wasteland that has nurtured such abominations as Revenge, Antediluvian (of whom Tim Grieco mixed and mastered the work), Rites of Thy Degringolade, Weapon, etc., Prophetic Suffering seem to fall precisely in the tradition of their Canadian scene with their weaponized and feral glorification of negativity, yet what transpires from these four bludgeoning tracks is also a penchant for exalting the band's masterful wielding of certain US death metal influences reminiscent of animalistic and brutal pioneers like Deicide, Immolation, Drawn and Quartered, Imprecation and other dark 90's US death metal with violent and dark inclinations.
The “Demonstration MMXXII” debut four track demo tape will be officially released worldwide physically and digitally by Sentient Ruin on Friday December 2 2022 for Bandcamp Friday.
Thank you as always for your time and attention given to our releases.
Sincerely, Sentient Ruin

Labyrinth Tower has announced the vinyl edition of THE HAUNTING, the debut from black metal collaboration and member of the Ordo Vampyr Orientis collective, BAD MANOR.
Originally released on cassette and digital formats, the Labyrinth Tower edition is being offered on heavyweight translucent pink/magenta marble and limited black vinyl, with an illustrated 16-page book of stories that accompany the twisted tales heard on The Haunting. Orders also come with a brushed bronze Ordo Vampyr Orientis insignia pin.

Stream The Haunting at https://ordovampyrorientis.com/album/the-haunting
 "A house, high on a hill, filled with a mystical air."
Emerging from the burgeoning Ordo Vampyr Orientis circle, metal entity BAD MANOR's energetic and whimsical debut The Haunting weaves a series of dark tales surrounding the band's titular mansion. Inhabited by dark spirits and curses alike, BAD MANOR’s vision of metal looks not to grim forests and minimal musical ideas but rather vivid, imagination-driven scenes, curious tales, and sinister, active musical ideas alike. Featuring a paired book illustrated by artist Landis Blair and with stories recounted by the mysterious author and medium Stephen R.C. Sicreeve, The Haunting’s multidisciplinary approach to metal–filled with secrets and hidden passages–is as sprawling and chaotic as the house itself. Lose yourself in its hallways, but don't let yourself disappear. Listeners and readers alike: beware.
Each new homage becomes a portrait, each new portrait becomes our legend.
Track listing:
1) The Room with Six Hundred and Sixty-Six Eyes
2) The Study, Filled with Books
3) Through the Garden to The Graves
4) An Incident in The Nursery At The Witching Hour

This is the most ambitious and accomplished album by the Spanish black metal band Frozen Dawn who haven't quite received the attention that they deserved in the past. Intense and sharp, their scintillating music is tempered by heart-rending melodies and leads, and it's all beautifully strung together.
FROZEN DAWN  - “THE DECLINE OF THE ENLIGHTENED GODS” 
26.11.2022 News Frozen DawnGenre - Black Metal
Release Date - February 10th, 2023
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Dissection, Necrophobic, Thulcandra, Naglfar, Unanimated, Sacramentum, Imperialist, Vorga
For a decade and a half, Frozen Dawn have been perfecting their sound which can be described as stirring, intense and scathing black metal tempered with melody and soaring leads. The members have used their experience in notable bands to create something that not only pays earnest tribute to the classic bands such as Dissection, Necrophobic, Sacramentum and Naglfar but also sounds contemporary in terms of structure and execution. They've bolstered the sound with death metal influences and even added slight thrash touches, ensuring that the music remains powerful, incisive and compelling. The momentum remains unabated as the band pummels its way through nine elaborate tracks and a fitting cover of Necrophobic. Many bands have attempted to recreate this sound with varying degrees of success but clearly Frozen Dawn have excelled at it which is mainly due to their knack for meticulous songwriting that straddles heaviness with emotion, allowing them to enhance the expression and maintain the much-needed diversity for the style. This album is easily Frozen Dawn's best one yet and is head and shoulders above the rest of them where this kind of music goes in recent memory.

Ohio's notorious, boundary-pushing, and bloodsucking death metal outfit SANGUISUGABOGG — Cody Davidson, drums; Drew Arnold, guitars/bass; Devin Swank, vocals; and Ced Davis, guitars/bass — have announced their new album "HOMICIDAL ECSTASY" . The album arrives on February 3. 

Today, the band has shared the video for "Pissed." Watch it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXDoLIdfXIg
"This song is a showcase of the struggle of finding euphoria and bliss out of something savagely disastrous and ultimately just wreaking havoc on anything in your path so it ceases to exist or ever haunt your mind again," the band says. "It's not self reflection, it's not fantasy, and it's not a game; it's something savagely brutal presented in our own way so you can shove the hell out of the person next to you and have a good time while getting 'Pissed' with us!"
"Homicidal Ecstasy" follows 2021's "Tortured Whole". The band continues to slice up uncompromising, in-your-face, and not-for-the-weak death metal that siphons inspiration from early to mid- '90s and early '00s death metal and brutal death metal/grindcore presented in their own style with a unique twist that pleases every style of metal maniac.

STABBING – “EXTIRPATED MORTAL PROCESS”
26.11.2022 News StabbingLabel: Comatose Music
Release date: December 9th 2022
Genre: Brutal Death Metal
For fans of: Cannibal Corpse | Defeated Sanity | Disgorge | Cerebral Effusion
The emperor of pain, the king of the twilight hours, sits enthroned in his web of nightmares. His court of shrieking devils hang about him, bound in barbed and poisoned, clinging threads; ropes of agony that inspire their cacophonous songs of praise. He reaches through the walls of sleep with his innumerable claws, scouring and scarring, infecting damaged minds with visions of depravity and wickedness. He whispers with a voice like tearing skin, planting seeds of rage and dark desire, impregnating the broken with a desperate need to kill...
Having gouged out a bloody home for themselves in the hearts of brutal death metal fans the world over with last year’s Ravenous Psychotic Onslaught EP, Texan killing machine Stabbing are back with their debut full length album. Extirpated Mortal Process is a vivid horror show of unfathomable violence, which retains the ultra-aggressive, confrontational savagery of Ravenous Psychotic Onslaught but adds a dense, suffocating atmosphere of dread. A crawling mist of overwhelming terror winds about the hammer-blow riffs and slips between the guttural vocal exhortations. The band’s signature song, ‘Stabbing’, is every bit as good as you could hope for – combining shocking, bestial brutality with instantly memorable song construction. Opening track ‘Inhaling The Dead’ heightens the tension and tightens the vice with every passing moment, before exploding into the frenzied attack of ‘Razor Wire Strangulation’, while ‘Visceral Liquid Terror’ is the perfect distillation of merciless brutality. Wherever you turn Extirpated Mortal Process confronts you with another blood chilling sonic assault. There is no escape from this labyrinth of monsters.
The sound of Extirpated Mortal Process is as staggering as the individual performances, thanks to the fantastic team assembled to work on it. The drums were recorded with Josh Vasquez of Malignant Existence at JMTX Productions, the guitars and vocals by Chris Kritikos (Oceans Of Slumber etc) at Southwing Audio and mixing and mastering duties were handled by Januaryo Hardy (Pure Wrath, Waking The Cadaver, Brodequin etc). Set to be a landmark release in brutal death metal, Stabbing’s monstrous debut album will be released by Comatose Music on December 9th, enfolded in the magnificently malicious artwork of Daemorph Art (Aborted Fetus, Black Dahlia Murder, Iron Fire etc). Gloriously grotesque in every aspect, this is one album that you cannot afford to miss; a flesh rending masterpiece that will leave you scarred.

Kansas City thrashers HELLEVATE will kick off 2023 with the release of THE PURPOSE IS CRUELTY. The band’s newest EP features five aggressive tracks of classic speed/thrash metal with a modern attack. A violent hybrid of East Coast and Bay Area thrash, The Purpose of Cruelty shows why HELLEVATE has been called “a new hope for thrash” (All Around Metal).
The band has is offering the first taste of The Purpose of Cruelty in the form of a lyric video for the album’s title track. Guitarist Joshua Cole comments. “’The Purpose is Cruelty' is a song we've been working on and playing live for a while. A lot of our songs can get pretty elaborate and intensive musically, and it felt like a good change of pace to strip it back a bit. Take more of a sledgehammer approach for a song, ya know? Necessarily we needed an equally vicious vocal approach. The lyrics are about the inherent cruelty built into society and leadership; the way so many seem to enjoy inflicting pain on others. Rob [Browne, vocals] does a fantastic job bringing the venom! This is just a taste of what's on the EP, and we know you'll like the rest of what we have in store!”

Playing melodic thrash metal with a mixture of extreme and power metal thrown in to keep listeners on their toes, HELLEVATE draws from across the spectrum of sounds to forge the most potent of heavy metal. The band was formed in the late 2000s by guitarist Dan Whitmer, and while it has experienced several lineup changes, the band has found its superior form with the addition of Zack Burke, Joshua Cole, RJ Whitmer, and new singer Robert Browne.
HELLEVATE’s debut was released in 2012 and followed up in 2014 with the EP Kill Confirmed and the album Weapons Against Their Will in 2016. Singles “Last of the Fell” and “Krampusnacht” were released in 2018 and 2019, respectively. The band’s new EP, The Purpose Is Cruelty, is the culmination of the work the band has put in up to this point. Packed with riffs across a spectrum of sounds and the razor-sharp vocals of Robert, HELLEVATE seeks to make a statement with the release.
The band has established itself by sharing the bill with many nationally touring bands, including Exodus, Kreator, Accept, Overkill, Destruction, Ghoul, Venom Inc., and Danzig, just to name a few. With a great lineup and a bright future ahead of them, HELLEVATE continues to grow as a musical force in the metal world, and intends to dominate and annihilate for many years to come.

XYGRBRYRX
unleash the cathartic violence of CUNNING PUNTS - explosve extreme metal!
26.11.2022 News xygrbryrxGenre: Extreme Metal/Grindcore
For fans of: Anaal Nathrakh | The Berzerker | Brutal Truth | Cephalic Carnage
Sleepless, restless, endless nights bleed into days of silent, frantic fear. You are weary to the bone, crawling your way through new black depths of fatigue and exhaustion, but the crushing tiredness never collapses into that desperately desired state of peaceful oblivion. You can’t focus, you can’t think because there’s a monster on your horizon, scratching at the corner of your eye – unheard, unseen but ever present. Your pounding heart tells you that the beast is coming and the dread rises inside you, like water in a tank and you know you’re about to drown...
Anxiety is a small word behind which hides a vicious, feral creature that gnaws at the nerve endings with a relentless hunger. It consumes your energy, like a ghoul sucking the marrow from your aching bones. It wraps you in a cloak of impending doom, choking you with indefinable fears. Michael Jon White has spent most of his life clasped in this poisonous embrace and xygrbryrx (pronounced zye-ger-bry-rex) has become his release. When his internal struggle collides with an external world that grows more bewildering and hate-filled by the day the result is an explosion of vitriolic, grinding extreme metal. Cunning Punts is his latest sonic sculpture, a twisted mass of rage and fury, jagged riffs and venom. Aside from the deceptive sweetness of opening track ‘Lullaby For The Undeserving’, Cunning Punts is a battering attack from start to finish, an unapologetic, remorseless assault screaming in the face of intolerance. Commenting on the unwavering aggression of Cunning Punts Michael states simply “sometimes just heavy is what is needed” and who could argue with that?
Following on directly from the multi-faceted complexity of xygrbryrx’ debut album Grindstone, which strives to explore the daily struggles of those who suffer from mental illness, Michael sees Cunning Punts as “a palate cleanser”, a savage detonation of extremity, a primal roar of brutality. Featuring a searing guest guitar solo from Joe Tal (Crown Compass, Illucinoma, ex-Textures) and visceral artwork that captures the raw emotion of the music, produced in conjunction with Claire-Marie Hampton, Cunning Punts is Michael Jon White and the xygrbryrx beast at their most violent and unforgiving. Behind this door lies pure, unadulterated rage...

Recently wrapping up their North American tour supporting legendary German speed metallers ACCEPT, NARCOTIC WASTELAND founded by guitarist Dallas Toler-Wade is sharing their assaulting new single “VICTIMS OF THE ALGORITHM” with a music video premiere on Decibel Magazine https://www.decibelmagazine.com/2022/11/17/video-premiere-narcotic-wasteland-victims-of-the-algorithm/
26.11.2022 News NARCOTIC WASTELANDThe track is a crushing speed storm of death thrash, with its visceral vocals, and a demolishing blast beat war to annihilate the mosh pit. The song is the first time drummer/ vocalist Joseph Howard collaborated with Wade.
"I had the music done for an untitled track that I already recorded in the studio, but I didn't have lyrics written yet, then Joseph showed me lyrics he wrote called Victims of the Algorithm and after I read them, I knew they were the perfect match for this song. To break it down, Victims of the Algorithm is about a lot of things, but for me, after reading Howard's lyrics, it's mostly about putting down our phones and breaking free from this ridiculous round of existence we have created for ourselves. Disconnecting from the daily neurotypical absurdities and enjoying life in the moment." says Wade.
The music video was created by Kenji Tsunami of Tsunami films. Footage for the video was captured at the Thirsty Axe in Ukiah, CA, and at the band's rehearsal space in San Francisco, CA.
"I think Kenji really captured our live prowess very well!! It has a very gritty punk rock feel to it, and fits the song and its meaning perfectly," adds Wade.
“Victims of the Algorithm” will be featured on Narcotic Wasteland's forthcoming 2023 album via Megaforce Records (release date to be determined). The single was recorded with engineer, and producer Erik Schultek who is no stranger to the band having recorded drums, engineered and produced their self-titled debut album. The band's 2023 album will be the follow-up to their sophomore full-length 2017’s “Delirium Tremens”.
Stream for “Victims of the Algorithm” available on https://orcd.co/nwvota
Inspired mostly by thrash metal and classic heavy metal, Narcotic Wasteland is becoming more thrash and speed and less death metal and getting better at writing material that is meaningful and powerful. They are recommended for fans of Vader, Death, The Crown, Autopsy, Pestilence, and Nile.

About:
Narcotic Wasteland started as a side project Dallas Toler-Wade had been working on the past few years when he was not touring or in the writing/studio with metal heavyweights "Nile."
‘So I just started writing some songs kind of more in the style of things I was playing before my time in Nile. The more we started working on these demos the more we wanted to complete an album and take it to the stage!!! Our observation of what was going on in parts of the town we grew up in and in other parts of the world fueled a new level of angst for me personally.” DTW

LUNAR MERCIA – “LEAVING THE FRAGILE SPACE”
26.11.2022 News Lunar MerciaLabel: Independent Release
Release date: November 2022
Genre: Post Black Metal
For fans of: Agalloch | Wolves In The Throne Room | Harakiri For The Sky | Ghost Bath
As light is refracted through a prism, revealing an array of brilliant hues, the secret colours that shimmer within, so can the human heart be broken open, unveiling a spectrum of unsuspected emotion. From the crimson of overwhelming passion and uncontrollable rage, to the deep violet shadows of sadness and remorse; the cold blues of pain that bleed into the purple bruises of loss and the rich green of hope that gives way to the warm fires of yellow and orange, of joy and exultation. So much held invisible, shining unseen between the beats of life that countdown slowly to our death.
The four remarkable songs that form the debut album from Birmingham, England’s Lunar Mercia – Leaving The Fragile Space – hold all the secrets of the human heart, all the colours of emotion within their breathtaking expanse of sound. Raging ferocity and deep, cold melancholy are juxtaposed and entwined. Legions steeped in burning darkness march with a strident, imperious pace from smoke enshrouded battlefields into beautiful expanses of clear blue sky. The listener is carried from the peaks of exhilaration to the stygian depths of sorrow, through passages of tranquillity and eruptions of blood and warfare. And each perfectly crafted moment flows into the next, as natural and essential as breathing. The grand length of three of these tracks simply goes unnoticed, with every second forming an intrinsic part of each unfolding story. Marrying the atmosphere and attack of black metal to the introspection and reflection of post-metal, Lunar Mercia have created something that will enamour and enthral. From the fierce opening salvo of ‘On The Veiled Road’, through its punchy, melodic riffs and plaintive cries, on into the tumultuous sea of contrasts that is ‘Sombre Corruption'. We pause and gather our thoughts, attempt to take in all that has befallen us in the delicate whispers of ‘The Loss’ and then scale the heights of ‘Leaving The Fragile Space’ itself to take in the vast vistas of sound that lie around us.
Building on the strong foundations of their 2020 EP, Departing And Adoring, Lunar Mercia have taken giant strides with Leaving The Fragile Space, indulging their imagination and ambition to the full with incredible results. Recorded at Super Audio Brains with producer Matt Taylor and mastered by Chris Fielding (Conan, Boss Keloid, Winterfylleth etc) every facet of Leaving The Fragile Space shines, while the artwork created by Chris Scrivens captures the essence of the emotive music within. Released digitally on September 30th, Leaving The Fragile Space is now available on four panel, digi-pack CD. Lunar Mercia are purveyors of dreams, their music forged in the fires of creative endeavour and Leaving The Fragile Space is a work of majesty and magic not to be missed.

“The Bilious Hues of Gloom” is the fourth album by masters of deranged, demented and disjointed Black Metal mindfuckery WOLOK.
Too Punk for Black Metal, too Doom for Punk, too Industrial for Doom: WOLOK are back to torment our ears with their uncanny and alien noise, taking their fear inducing and manic sound literally to the extreme.
Can you imagine the raw savagery of early Black Metal mixed with monolithic Death Doom, a pinch of Crust Punk and some spastic Plasma Pool type of EBM all placed inside a jar? WOLOK did, they made a molotov of it and they are now ready to throw it at us all and see the world burn.
Bipolarly shifting from majestic to decrepit and back for all of its duration, “The Bilious Hues of Gloom” is a completely psychotic album conjuring a dense sense of fear and hallucination.

Bio:
Scars of the Flesh is a Melodic Blackened Death Metal Band from San Antonio, TX, created in 2014 by Guitarists Bryan Eckermann (Solo Artist, ex-Wings of Abaddon), Derek Russell and Vocalist Kobey Lange (Cerebral Desecration, ex-Wings of Abaddon). Their debut album Harvest of Souls was released in 2017 to a wide positive online reaction, 20,000+ views on the Youtube stream and many album sales encouraged the members to push the band forward. 2020 saw the release of the second album Reaching into the Void, still crafted by only the three members alone, but a first live show was booked with fill-in members on drums and bass to celebrate the release and finally bring the band to the stage. Immediately after, Covid became a reality, and had prevented much progress throughout the next year and a half. But the work continued, and a new full lineup was soon in place with adding Collyn Rios (Cerebral Desecration, Black Jackal) on drums, and Robert O'Briant (The Hanged Man's Curse, ex-Wings of Abaddon) on bass. Kicking off their return to the stage, was a battle for the Wacken festival in Texas as well as several other local shows. Now in November 2022 they return with their third album In Darkness Alone, featuring five new original tracks as well as four cover songs. Mixing a perfect blend of dark atmosphere, melody and brutality. This new release looks to carve the name Scars of the Flesh into the minds of all...

Forged from the melting pot of Detroit's underground metal scene, ASYLENCE is a well-oiled metal machine built with passion, intent, and ferocity like no other. At the beginning of next year, they will be releasing their full-length album “ENDANGER US ALL” and The Circle Pit is now premiering their second single “Soulless”, which comes at you heavy, fast, and punishing as they count down the days to the album release. They wanted the second look at this new offering to be a heavy one, “Soulless” was the obvious choice. Vocalist Ryan Lang explains further:
“This is another oldie but a goodie. One of the heaviest songs we’ve ever written especially early on in the band. This is screaming in an addict's face. This is how hard it is to see a loved one fade away into the depths of addiction. This song is so emotional for me, I’ve lost far too many friends to drugs and addiction, and I’m no stranger to my own struggles myself. I hope that this song can provide someone with comfort that they are not alone and maybe this could help encourage people to wake up and change their lives for the better.”
A fun fact about the single, the ending was actually first written off the cuff live. They screwed up how it was supposed to end and just ran with it and the crowd loved it. They did too, so it was added to the final song. The album “Endanger Us All” is a combination of Asylence’s oldest and newest material. The older songs have always been a staple in their live sets and they wanted to finally record them right and do them justice. The new songs have been completed since the release of their 2020 EP “Eulogy Of Man” and they really constructed the bridge from what we were to what they’re becoming.
Asylence started out trying to be as heavy as they could possibly be but now they find themselves exploring more techniques and ideas that they had never previously thought to pursue. They are recommended for fans of Arch Enemy, DevilDriver, and Amon Amarth.
Watch and listen to the music video for “Soulless” at https://youtu.be/YIrMYwf3B2U
“Endanger Us All” is due out on February 24, 2022.

About:
Asylence (uh-sigh-lence): A hybrid of the words Asylum and Silence, when joined together, present a universal idea and timeless message: The constant suffering and failures of mankind. After the dissolution of drummer Alex Aubuchon’s highly active, long-standing thrash band, he began to focus his efforts on recruiting for his new project. He discovered the talent of guitarist Aaron Lumsden, an avid scene supporter who frequented many local and regional shows.
A dedicated relationship quickly formed between the pair, and Asylence was born. Frontman Ryan Lang, having been a mainstay in the Detroit metal scene but group-less at the time, was Asylence's first choice to handle vocal duties. Ryan accepted, excited at the idea of hitting the stage once again. Shortly after, bassist Richard Olrich joined the group to complete the sound. A new era of heavy metal ensued.
Forged from the melting pot of Detroit's underground metal scene, Asylence is a well-oiled metal machine built with passion, intent, and ferocity like no other. Since their formation in 2016, Asylence has been on a path of sonic destruction as they crush their audiences with fierce live performances throughout Michigan and surrounding states, opening for national acts such as Archspire, Belphegor, and Sea of Treachery, among others. Taking no prisoners and amassing a loyal, respecting fan base in the Midwest and beyond, behold the rise of Asylence.

Die BlackMetal Ultras WHISKEY RITUAL werden am 09.12.2022 ihr neues Album "KINGS" via Folter Records veröffentlichen. Ganz simple: Das Album gibt es jetzt schon komplett im Stream. Hier entlang bitte:  https://youtu.be/xJhdqCPK8qc
Die Black Metal Ultras sind zurück!WHISKEY RITUAL melden sich nach drei Jahren und unzähligen Shows voller Zerstörungen, Whiskey und brutalen Erinnerungen mit ihrem fünften Album wieder. Es stellt eine Zäsur dar. Denn die Italiener sind anders an ihr neuestes Werk gegangen als in der Vergangenheit und herausgekommen ist „KINGS“. Ein Album voller Grausamkeit und Dekadenz – gleichzeitig aber natürlich immer noch voller Punk: Ein respektloser Mittelfinger in die heutige Gesellschaft. Es hat sich eine Spur mehr Dramatik eingeschlichen, die aber nötig ist, um WHISKEY RITUAL im Jahre 2022 wieder zu spiegeln. Denn „Kings“ repräsentiert zu 100 % wofür die Band steht – eine Hommage an die alten Legenden, die in der Szene waren und jene, die sie mit knirschenden Zähnen und der richtigen Einstellung noch heute tragen. Ein brutaler Mittelfinger, der auch live dafür sorgen wird, dass das Publikum auf die Bühne springt, um gemeinsam mit WHISKEY RITUAL dem Black Metal Punk zu huldigen.
Die Scheibe wurde in Schweden im Necromorbus Studio von Tore Stjerna gemischt, gemastert und in ein passendes Klanggewand gehüllt. Ein dreckiger, eingängiger Bastard, der einmal mehr zeigt, woher WHSIKEY RITUAL kommen und wo sie hinwollen: Von den Straßen, in die Stadien und dann auf den Thron.
Wir sehen uns alle an der Theke – Prost!

Tracklist:
Silenced by Thunder
Line-up:
Ryan Dirheimer - Drums
John Harrell - Keyboards

Tony Shechtman - Guitar / Vocals
Rich Vogel - Bass Guitar
"I began to visualize Earth from far off in space, wrapped in clouds of humanity's foolish and violent legacy.”
Michigan metalnauts Vesperwynd's third official release Silenced by Thunder marks the first contribution from Jason Potts, who shares guitar and vocal duties with Tony Shechtman.
“I could see all the laughter and joy through history blended in with the suffering and depravity in one block,” Potts explains.
Tony’s clean vocals on the relentless marching verse sound an ominous warning answered by Jason’s snarling declarations on the soaring chorus. The bridge brings a dreamlike scene change evoking Slavic folklore, occult references, and Lynchian mythos.
“This is the vantage point from where the song is sung. It seems ever more likely this isn't going to end well, and this song is a product of mentally preparing for that.”
Silenced by Thunder was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Vesperwynd bassist Rich Vogel at Midi Castle and will be streaming on all major services on 11th November 2022.Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Rich Vogel at Midi Castle, Grand Rapids Michigan.

Death metal band DEATH REICH will release their sophomore EP, “THE FINAL PLAGUE”, on December 2nd 2022 via Non Serviam Records. 

On December 2nd the band unleashes the 2nd EP “The Final Plague”. Its primitive intro evolves into a progressive verse that mutates into an aggressive chorus making it a fair representation of the new album.
DEATH REICH Comments:
We are really proud of this EP. We think it represents what we are all about both musicly and lyricly. The EP containes four original songs that differs from each other but still remains within the realm that is Death Reich. The EP also includes a tribute to the mighty Entombed.
19.11.2022News Death ReichBio:
Death Reich was formed in 2018 by Jonas Blom (Sacramentum, Runemagick, ex Trident, ex Grief of Emerald, ex One Man Army and the Undead Quartet, ....) who at first played the guitar together with Marcus Fors (Voodus, ex Vornth) on drums and Robert Axelsson(Sacramentum, Grief of Emerald, ex One Man Army and the Undead Quartet) on bass.
 They later recruited Christer Bergqvist (Grief of Emerald, ex Sadistic Grimness, ex Auberon) on guitar and Johnny Lehto (Grief of Emerald, ex Decameron) on vocals.
Death Reich recorded a demo in 2018 with this setting that due to its unfulfilling result never saw the light of day. Marcus decided to quit the band shortly after this recording. The band had trouble finding a replacement, so Jonas took it upon himself to play the drums. The band initially played American old school Scott Burns era death metal but changed direction to faster, straight forward and more brutal Death metal and started writing and rehearsing new songs. A new guitar player was also needed and Robert Babic (ex-Brutal Division, Vulcanic) was recruited. Two new songs were recorded 2019 "We are you" and "Domination". These songs can be found on YouTube but where never properly promoted. 
In 2020 a recording was made which is now being released through Non Serviam Records. The first official release from Death Reich was a three song EP called Death Camp. The EP includes the title track, a song called "Hunger" and a cover of Metallica’s classic song "Fight fire with fire". 
In 2022 the band recorded this EP "The Final Plague". 
The EP contains four original songs that differs from each other but still remains within the realm that is Death Reich and also includes a tribute to the mighty Entombed
A full-length album is in the final stages and will be released soon.

Toronto, Canada’s NIHILIST DEATH CULT have its first album coming out this year, and to get listeners riled up they are releasing the video for the single “YOU GET WHAT YOU DESERVE” ft. a guest solo from Ian Mumble (Overthrow). Each of the nine tracks on the album is a shot of adrenaline in the veins of old-school punk rock and hardcore that take heavy riffs and slam them into relevant lyrics that you’ll want to sing along with. The single is directed to those who are always talking shit but never do anything:
“Your once proud moment is all in the past, what have you done all these years?” - the band comments further:
“Instead of writing more technical and trying to be complicated, we took the opposite approach and focused on the riffs, having strong catchy riffs was important to us, we were never worried about song lengths or slowing down, or having a soft mellow part in the middle section like most bands do… these songs are deliberately short and intense to capture the anger and hate in the mood of the songs… to keep the pace relentless… an execution to the songs with a “no compromise” attitude”. This should appeal to most fans of music I’ve done in the past, whether it be Overthrow, Soulstorm, or Tribe of Pazuzu… I feel it still retains my writing style while also expressing another facet/feel of my writing… my writing has always been on the darker side with anger and hate mixed in for attitude… I want to bring that back to punk and metal, the hate, anger, fire... relentless fast music."
Vocalist/bassist Nick Sagias started NDC in 2018 after ending his previous band Soulstorm. This new effort should appeal to most fans of music he's done in the past, whether it be Overthrow, Soulstorm, or Tribe of Pazuzu. He feels that it still retains his writing style while also expressing another facet of his creativity, it’s still dark and full of anger and hate mixed in for attitude. He channels that into his punk and metal hate, anger, fire... relentless fast music that is recommended for fans of early DRI, early Bad Brains, and Nails.
The music video for “You Get What You Deserve” can be seen and heard via its premiere on IDIOTEQ

Milwaukee (WI) - U.S. Progressive Death Metal band ANOMALY have released "SENTENCED TO THE TREES," the second single from forthcoming album SOMEWHERE WITHIN THE PINES. Stream the track at the link below.
https://anomalymke.bandcamp.com/track/sentenced-to-the-trees
"Sentenced To The Trees" is also available on Spotify and YouTube.
ANOMALY will self-release their second full-length album, Somewhere Within The Pines, on November 25.
Pre-order: https://anomalymke.bandcamp.com/album/somewhere-within-the-pines
A concept album written as a love letter to ANOMALY's progressive death metal influence, the material offered is of the ghastly, gruesome sort, as one will note from the "press statement" that follows!
BREAKING NEWS!
After the ninth missing child case in a little over the year, the police have admitted they may have a serial killer in the area. "These woods are deep and easy to get lost in," the sheriff said during a press conference on the latest missing child. "No remains have been found so we were hoping for the best, but now the time is to get real" "There's evil out there" one local stated. "I would NEVER let my kids go out there!" 
The town has a history of bizarre violent crimes dating back over 100 years, including the case of Diana Davidson who was murdered by her husband before he shot himself in front of police. The words "DON'T BELIEVE THE SPIDER'S LIES" were written on the kitchen wall in Diana's blood. "The spider" likely refers to a local legend of a spider demon that lives in the woods. Stephine Weber, a Youtuber who gained notoriety when one of her videos exposed police incompetence to such a degree that the town's mayor resigned, said she will be doing a series documenting the area's nefarious history. "I just want to see if I can go out there and help, get a fresh pair of eyes on the situation," she said in her latest upload. Though law enforcement have expressed concerns over Weber's involvement, the parents of the missing children welcome any assistance available in solving the mystery.

19.11.2022News Exist in RuinEXIST IN RUIN is a symphonic black metal/melodic death metal project founded by Seattle, WA-based guitarist/songwriter, Teren. Instrumentally, the main influences inspiring the sound of Exist in Ruin are leaders in their genres; Dimmu Borgir (Symphonic Black Metal), and Amon Amarth (Melodic Death Metal.)
Lyrically, this self-titled Exist in Ruin EP takes the listener on a dark rollercoaster ride through genocide, tyranny, religious persecution, mental illness, malpractice, and the supernatural. Persecution is the overwhelming theme throughout where each song tells a story of a ‘victim’ being persecuted by some entity, malpractice, or inner turmoil.
All songs (guitars, bass, and drum programming) are written and performed by Teren, including lyric writing and vocal pattern designs. During the writing process, Teren recruited world-class musicians from around the globe to make his dark musical vision a reality.
Featured artists include stunning accompanying symphonic compositions from Jonah Weingarten (Pyramaze, Catalyst Crime, We Are Sentinels, Structure of Inhumanity), world-class Soprano, classical, and metal vocals from Jessy Christ (NZGL, Syndro-syS), brutal vocals from César Moreira (Enblood, Cult Burial, and Nephilim), virtuoso guitar solos from João Miguel (Enblood, Nephilim, Stonesun, Adamantine), and additional guitar solo shredding from top-notch session guitarist Konstantin Raydovski. Sebastian Bracht, guitarist and vocalist (Sophicide, Dahlian) also provides acapella metal choir vocals that make the music soar to a whole new emotional level.
Exist in Ruin will continue to evolve musically and lyrically, and continue to recruit world-class talent that is best for the sound of the project’s future releases.

SLOUGH OF DESPAIR - “CATACOMBS OF TERROR”
19.11.2022News SLOUGH OF DESPAIRLabel: Chaos Records / Personal Records
Release date: digital / cassette (2020), CD (2021)
CHAOS RECORDS, in conspiracy with PERSONAL RECORDS, is proud to present SLOUGH OF DESPAIR'S striking debut album, CATACOMBS OF TERROR, on CD format.
Hailing from Athens, Greece, SLOUGH OF DESPAIR was formed in 2018 after guitarist Panos Lampropoulos (MALEDICTION) split from ORDEAL and began to write the first demo with vocalist Babis Oikonomopoulos (OCEAN OF GRIEF) and Dimitris Sakkas (Dimons Studio) on drums and
bass. Later on, Kostas Velnias (SERPENT’S ORDER) took over the vocals duties.
With their lineup thus complete, SLOUGH OF DESPAIR recorded their debut album in January 2020. Aptly titled Catacombs of Terror, this seven-song/42-minute monolith is suffocating to behold. Devastatingly crushing whilst eerily atmospheric, SLOUGH OF DESPAIR uphold its moniker through an ominously lumbering, oft-ritualistic strain of doom-death. Its pound-and-plod is rendered in richly analog tones, robust in their clarity yet never losing any inherent rawness; more to the point, you feel this dark density deep within your soul. Then, ripping that soul asunder, SLOUGH OF DESPAIR mesmerize with malevolently melodic twists that take their time to develop but deliver a bountiful payoff. Patience thus rewards those willing to step fully into these Catacombs of Terror.
Originally released digitally in April 2020 and then on a limited-edition cassette a few months after, Catacombs of Terror will, at last, see a CD release through a joint collaboration between Mexico's long-running CHAOS RECORDS and PERSONAL RECORDS, the new label imprint of MAJESTIC DOWNFALL mainman Jacobo Córdova. This is literally, titanic doom-death highly recommended for maniacs of Asphyx, Necros Christos, Winter, Cianide and Evoken.
With the release of their debut the band fleshed out their line-up with second guitarist Giannis Tziligkakis, bassist Nick Crimstein and drummer Jim Sinanis, and recently the band welcomed John Georgiadis.

When it comes to black/death metal, there are a few projects that can put a nice portion of Dungeon Synth in it like CRUCIATUS INFERNALIS. H.Daemonenwacht, the mastermind behind the project, has really outdone himself with the new single "KRIEGERWAHN".
The song is an absolute tour-de-force of unrelenting heaviness and dark atmosphere, and H.Daemonenwacht's vocals are absolutely demonic and reflect the insanity of the warrior perfectly. If you're a fan of black/death metal or just extreme metal in general, then you need to check out this new single: https://open.spotify.com/album/5TFdZ8Ifcb5HprdgMEXaXo?si=GBrnd2xlSTiyv2wkFkXLiw

Wondering what HARMONIZE from Cyprus have been up to since the release of their debut album? The band has been exploring different sounds, gradually evolving into their unique genre of choice, with influences of melodic death, such as that of Swedish legends, Amon Amarth. Therefore, it is no surprise they chose to take their own approach to the pounding and dynamic 'Shield Wall'. A cover was released on 18th November.
This slightly different approach to the song provides us with insight into the energy, hard work and solid performance on instruments and vocals the band aims to adopt as the main focus for their future work. This image is further reinforced by their decision to produce and release their own video of their version of the track, released on YouTube: https://youtu.be/MGPraUXvRpc
The conceptual band, being invested in their very own story, are not afraid to take on works that inspire them musically and offer their own interpretation as long as it serves their identity and intrigues the listener. You can find more about Harmonize at https://www.harmonizeofficial.com/

are not metal fans , proving metal is for all. Because it is ! We are not afraid to put sing along themes into any of our songs !

Songs about not accepting your fate : ( dahaka , eternal night , legacy, all wither in autumn)

IMPERIAL EXECRATION – “COMMANDING SATAN’S CRUSADES”

19.11.2022News Imperial ExecrationLabel: Comatose Music
Release date: December 9th 2022
Genre: Brutal Death Metal
For fans of: Suffocation | Gorgasm | Devangelic | Disentomb
“...on the Beach / Of that inflamed Sea, he stood and call'd / His Legions, Angel Forms, who lay intrans't / Thick as Autumnal Leaves... Awake, arise, or be forever fall'n.”
Paradise Lost – John Milton
Beneath the multitudinous banners of the lords of Hell they gather in a chittering, growling, bubbling mass of devilry. Like a plague of locusts held in a moment of suspended animation they await the final command, poised to swarm across the earth, creating a second seething inferno – a mirror of the many planes of their eternal home. This green and pleasant land shall be reformed in their own image. As the last rays of the sun’s fading crimson light bleed into the horizon the cry goes up from a million monstrous mouths, screaming as one, ‘Satan wills it!’And the dam breaks. The crusaders of Pandemonium are unleashed upon the world that was denied them.
At the spearhead of a new assault upon the bulwarks of civilisation come the barbaric horde of Imperial Execration, armed with the rotting horror of their debut album Commanding Satan’s Crusades. This aural abomination will suck the light from your world and plunge you into ineffable darkness. Formed by two Colombian musicians, now relocated to the UK, drummer Ruben Jaramillio (Ataud, Engulfed In Abomination) and guitarist/bassist Eduardo Camargo (Ataud, Goreinhaled, Despondency) this putrid platoon of Satan’s soldiers is completed by the bestial bellows of the infamous Mr Oscarnivore Macias of Carnivore Diprosopus. Together this tormented triad have created six pustulent psalms of inverted sanctity and added to that grim order of service a cover of Dehumanized’s ‘Condemned’. The oppressive weight and choking, claustrophobic horror of tracks like ‘His Ominous Presence’ give a smothering sense of imminent implosion, while the wild brutality of ‘Victory Of The Stygian Empire’ will have the righteous crying out for mercy. Technical and twisted, bludgeoning and battering...never has brutal death metal sounded so unspeakably evil and unremittingly black. This is the sound of the carnage at the world’s end.
Mixed and mastered for maximum destructive force by Tom Bradfield (Twitch Of The Death Nerve, Iniquitous Savagery, Infected Disarray etc) and given stunning visual impact by the unholy artwork of John Quevedo Janssens (Fleshtorture, Paganizer, Those Who Bring The Torture etc), Commanding Satan’s Crusades will be let loose upon the innocent on December 9th by Comatose Music. Satan wills it – the end is upon us!

Today, Italian black-thrash metal trailblazers NECRODEATH share the new single "OOMNY ONES". Watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgK_uI2DKLw

The clip was produced by Time To Kill Records/Morbid Vision Italy and directed by the band's frontman Flegias with the assistance of Merlin Music Management, BlåKläDer, Midnight Club.
The song is inspired by Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange" - the scene in which Alex, the protagonist, is seen regaining his leadership among his "droogs". In the video, the director (and singer of the band) elaborates this concept through the rivalry between two motorcycle gangs who meet to discuss the ownership of a territory. Those who are able to showcase a little (un)healthy ultra-violence will prevail. The video also shows the whole band drinking milk plus inside a replica of the famous Korova Milk Bar.
The band's new record "Singin' in the Pain" will be released via Time To Kill Records on November 28th 2022.
"Singin 'in the Pain" is a concept based on the movie “A Clockwork Orange” by Stanley Kubrick, where the band takes us on a one-way black-thrash journey, soaked in immorality and violence, and back to a vain attempt at redemption and normality.
The album is conceived in 9 tracks linked together by the narrating voice of Tony Dolan of VENOM INC. and supported in the finale by the presence of Eric Forrest of E-FORCE (ex-VOIVOD).
Ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence?

The moment you hear it, you know it's NECRODEATH. Formed back in 1984, the Italian act is one of the real iconic black-thrash metal bands. With an ongoing career of almost 40 years, the band has helped to shape the Italian metal scene and the international underground as it is today. NECRODEATH released a cult-demo tape titled "The Shining Pentagram" and obtained an incredible success in the underground. The demo is still considered a real gem in the thrash and black metal history. Tons of tributes in major magazines, fanzines and other underground outlets highlighted the release of the first two legendary albums "Into The Macabre" (1987) and "Fragments Of Insanity" (1989). And today after many full-lengths, EPs and side projects the long voyage to hell is not over yet.

Fans of US Total Occultic Mechanical Blasphemers T.O.M.B, have today been given the chance to hear a second track from the band's upcoming album "TERROR WINDS", which is due for release on Dark Essence Records on the 2nd December.
The title of the single, "Hatred to All"  is a clear indication of the thoughts and emotions that lie behind the track, as T.O.M.B explain:
“Hatred to All”  is an anthem to those visions and values that shaped the foundation of early 90’s black metal.  With a ruthless rabid intent, the malice behind the music of the song embodies acts of aggression without borders.  It embraces a freedom of unrestrained anger and ill will toward everyone and everything regardless of gender, race, religion, moral beliefs or political stances.  
"Hatred to All" can be downloaded or streamed from a number of services at 
https://link.darkessencerecords.no/TOMB_Hatred-to-All
As well as on YouTube at https://youtu.be/QWk7SBndt-o
A follow up to 2020's "The Thin Veil",  T.O.M.B's latest album "Terror Winds", is the  seventh full-length release from a band known for its exploration of esoteric matters  such as death, paranormal activity and occult practices, and who, with over twenty years of making music, have created a sound that combines Black Metal with elements of  Dark Ambient, Doom, Death, Industrial and Power Electronics.

Bringing all their experience to bear  on "Terror Winds", T.O.M.B have created an album that has the authentically dangerous feel of early 90s Black Metal.  Combine that with a powerful wave of ambient keyboards and classic T.O.M.B. noise, and you have an album filled with symphonic ambience and necromantic noise soundscapes. It is both horrific and spellbinding in a way that only a band with the  reputation as one of the top innovators in the field of modern-day Black Metal can produce.
With a lineup that includes No-One, B. Zimimay, Tyler B and Samantha Viola, "Terror Winds" was recorded live at the Ossuary Studios in New York City and mastered by Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studios in Sweden. 
14.11.2022News T.O.M.B.With  artwork by Nestor Avalos, tracklisting for "Terror Winds" is as follows:
1. Terror Winds
2. In the Ugly Dark
3. Wraiths
4. Hatred to All
5. Frost Tyrants
6. Reincarnation

Italian chaotic hardcore force INFALL are premiering their new album "FAR" AT INVISIBLE ORANGES. Stream it https://www.invisibleoranges.com/infall-far/
For fans of: Converge, Botch, Mastodon, The Secret, Breach, Norma Jean
"Far" will be released on November 14th, 2022. It's the band's first new studio release after more than five years.
"Far" was recorded in July 2021 by Enrico Baraldi (Ornaments, Collars) at Vacuum Studio in Bologna, mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge) at God City Studio in Salem (MA) and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (NY) in November-December 2021.

01. Check Pulse
02. Heritage
03. Not Even a Scratch
04. Triumphant March
05. Spring Peace
06. Love, Karina
07. Good Morning Lethargy
08. Mistress of Disorder
09. Stamina
10. Because of the Blue
11. Man Down
12. Forever Mine
"Far", which combines hardcore, grind, math and post hardcore elements, is the rawest and darkest expression of the band's sound, which finds its own peculiar identity in this work. The production returns an organic, natural and unedited sound, recalling the band’s live performance.
“Far” talks about distance in all its forms. The album begins with the memory of a loved one undergoing pain therapy, during which emerges the infinite distance that separates two people apparently very close. From this point on, each song represents various manifestations of "distance": social, cultural, ideological, religious and, sometimes, of the individual himself from its own being.
The epilogue of the album in fact tells the local story of a man who begins to travel, trying to fill the loss of his wife. The journey leads to nothing but to the extreme decision to take his own life: "all that remains, is the dark of a void, full of my miles, but empty of me".
“Here we are, far, far apart from each other. Universes, blending, touching, nowhere near " (Check Pulse)

The album will be released in November 2022 by Controcanti Produzioni, Mothership Records, Fresh Outbreak Records, Itawak Records, Tomb Tree Tapes and Flames Don’t Judge Prod.

FÉLETH
, from northern Norway, is now streaming their second album “DIVINE BLIGHT”, which they see as a solid step up from 2020’s “Depravity”. They take on real-life events and put them to provocative music best described as melodic death metal with a healthy dose of technical death metal added in. The lyrical themes are often inspired by things that vocalist Espen Dagenborg finds massively wrong such as politicians waging war, being greedy, and also how humans can be extremely hateful against others. Then again there are also songs that are somewhat purely fictional, mostly showcasing his lyrical style.
As Féleth was the continuation of a former thrash metal band, IronBound, it’s natural to say that they started out as a thrash death band. As the then-young boys started to discover the joys of death metal the sound evolved more toward that. Along with the newfound joy came the struggle, for death metal wasn’t easy to play. After finally mastering the ways of death metal and having released “Depravity” disaster struck. The now not-so-young boys had developed a taste for technical death metal and big hooks. When the time came to work on “Divine Blight” they already had a handful of finished songs to choose from, each one a work of art - melodic, technical, brutal art. The band comments:
“After getting signed with our new label “Rob Mules Records” and playing some pretty sick gigs at both Buktafestivalen and Tons of Rock, we’re super stoked to release our new album “Divine Blight”. It was a long and tedious process of selecting, practicing, and recording, but the result will speak for itself. Our best album thus far. It’s a collection of stories based on the dystopian path humanity is set on. We felt that throughout this new journey of an album we’ve refined our songwriting and successfully achieved a style that’s not only ass-whoppingly brutal, but also more complex emotionally and lyrically. It is clear that we’ve got multiple influences and styles throughout the album which all contribute to a massive sonic package. It’s definitely a death metal album with some subtle takes on some of its many subgenres. Two and half years after our debut “Depravity” we’re ready to present 'DIVINE BLIGHT'.”
The album was mixed and mastered by Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy) and the album artwork was done by Kahinienn Graphix. The Northern Norwegian technical death rock is recommended for fans of Fit For An Autopsy, Inferi, and Soreption.

FIFTH RING – “MASOCHIST”

14.11.2022News Fifth RingLabel: Independent Release
Release date: October 28th 2022
Genre: Blackened Deathcore
For fans of: Cattle Decapitation | Bog Wraith | Sun Speaker | Katabasis
Within the vast swamplands of the fifth ring the sullen and the wrathful seethe and rage, as is their wont. Some lurk beneath the cold, silt filled waters, breathing in filth and breathing out bile and bitterness, blind to all but hatred and grievance. Some thrash through the sucking mud, flinging themselves upon their fellow sinners – rending and ripping with tooth and nail, screaming in anger and agony, bleeding the black blood of the damned into the torpid waters of their eternal prison. No devils torment these boiling, resentful, turbulent souls; they wound themselves, trap themselves and tear themselves asunder.
If all the rage of all the souls who have poisoned themselves with anger over the centuries of mankind’s dismal tenure on this earth were transformed into sound, then maybe that aeons long scream would possess a fraction of the fire and fury held within the debut album from Fifth Ring. Masochist is phenomenally heavy, a staggeringly fierce outpouring of extremity, a maelstrom where blackened deathcore, progressive death metal and sheer bloody brutality collide and explode! Yet while the firestorm intensity and bludgeoning blows of songs like ‘The Snake’ are fearsome in their power, the breadth and depth of imagination displayed in multifaceted creations like ‘Dust To Dust’ is equally remarkable.  The international trio who make up the beast that is Fifth Ring - Zachary Kepley (Vocals, Bass, Drums) based in Taiwan and Q. Keith Brown Jr. (Drums) and Christopher Williamson (Guitars) based in Atlanta, Georgia, USA - might have started down this path with no higher goals than conjuring up some brutal tunes and seeing just how heavy they could get, but along the way Fifth Ring has grown into something none of them could have fully anticipated. No-one could have foreseen the birth of a monster this colossal, this inspiring and intimidating from such humble beginnings and simple aspirations.
Following on directly from the three track EP Dawn, Masochist is a huge leap forward for Fifth Ring in every department. The individual performances have reached new levels, the song writing is breathtaking in its ambition and the sound captured by Zachary Kepley combines clarity and power with a wicked, raw, serrated edge which keeps things sounding downright dangerous. The multi tasking Kepley has also created the intriguing cover art that adorns Masochist, an image which helps the album take another step away from those who might imagine themselves to be peers or contemporaries. When Masochist becomes available in digital format and as a limited edition CD from October 28th do not hesitate to leap into those swamps of rage – feel your mind forcibly expanded while your bones are remorselessly broken!

French Black Metal Band DEPRESSIVE WITCHES Drops "DISTANT KINGDOMS" Music Video :
"Distant Kingdoms" is the opening track taken from Depressive Witches'upcoming album "Distant Kingdoms", due for release on November 25th, 2022 via Wormholedeath worldwide.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEGT55cCrU8
14.11.2022News DEPRESSIVE WITCHESThe band speaking of the album, stated: “We are excited to reveal this new album, which is the perfect mix of our main influences: black’n’roll, heavy metal, and classic rock. Music is perfectly serving the album theme, which is focused on epicness, battles, and exploration of new worlds, as we did for songwriting. “Distant Kingdoms” is a black metal album with so many influences, really rare in this genre. We kept our punky sound and mixed it with folk melodies, always with this “in your face” style, this is why fans loved the first album. We see being a duo band as an intense and intimate way to play music, and not a reduction of sound diversity, so we’re not afraid to mix every sound we love.”
Even just being two musicians on stage, they leave nothing behind and can fill out the space with their massive sound and dynamic energy.
Black Metal band Depressive Witches was formed in 2018 in Picardy, France by brothers Sick Bab (Baptiste Robert) on vocals and guitar, and Torvuus (Paul Robert) on guitars and drums. Linked by both blood and a passion for black and extreme metal, creating music together was only natural.
In 2021, they released their debut album “Bad Flask”, which leaned heavily into the traditional black metal influences of the duo and contained lyrical themes revolving around witchcraft, curses, and epic fights. The release was recorded by Jonas Sanders & Ivan Houben, and mixed/mastered by Jonas Sanders at Blackout Studio, in Brussels.
2022 witnesses a new album from the band "Distant Kingdoms" again recorded, mixed, and mastered by Jonas Sänders. In contrast to the first album, it pays homage to its rock influences and contains more solos and clean vocals. An anomaly in the black metal scene, it is a mix of black metal, punk, heavy metal, joyful & darkened riffs, like black’n’roll but more festive and epic. Lyrically it looks into adventures, magic battles/war, and high fantasy which take inspiration from RPG video games with medieval themes, nature, and black magic.

Canadian thrashers KORROSIVE announce they will be unleashing CDs, cassettes and vinyl of their latest album "TOXIC APOKALYPSE" via CDN Records. CDs will be due out on November 18th, with cassettes and vinyl for release in 2023 (release to be announced at a later date). The full-length was released digitally on October 7th of this year.

Korrosive is from Toronto, ON that is in your face, unapologetic, and is definitely one that offers a high-octane headbanging experience, unlike anything you’ve heard before as they explore and push the boundaries of thrash metal with extreme influences.
"We want to be a thrash metal band that combines the elements of thrash in its roots, but also breaks down walls by incorporating various influences from grind and death, or whatever comes to mind to mix it up." says vocalist Rad Zarei.
Their new album "Toxic Apokalypse" follows their first full-length 2021's "Kaustic Hordes" and the 2019 EP "Melting from Within". Featuring eight assaulting bangers, each song on the album is quite different in a way from each other, and yet, still uniquely Korrosive. They push each track with speed and extremity, from 'Fatal Strike' that has a ton of blast beats and solos, yet is still unmistakably thrash, to 'Radioaktive Scourge', filled with pure aggression, unlike anything they’ve released before. From its speed, the lyrics, and the sheer intensity, this song may be the shortest track on the record, but makes the largest impact and it’s over before you know it. And also strongly recommended is 'Hail the Hellfire', perhaps the band's anthem to the entire "Toxic Apokalypse" album. Written as a reflection of the period when the full-length was being composed, this track discusses the brutality of war and the end result of each and every individual involved in its cause, regardless of side.
The band adds:
"Diabolical, fast, unforgiving armageddon. From slow passages, mid-tempo bangers, hyper-fast blast beats, and the occasional odd-time signature, it’s a ride in extreme thrash unlike anything before. Toxic Apokalypse is an album that will hit you hard, fast, and leave you with a 'what the f*ck just happened?' feeling."
Lyrically, the music sets the overall tone for how the lyrics are written and substance. Songs deal with topics of science fiction, armageddon, and “what if” scenarios. The album art was created by the infamous Ed Repka (Dark Angel, Death, Hirax, Megadeth, Suicidal Angels, Venom).
"Typically, the way we write songs is to have each song done or be in the middle of the writing process, and I would create something out of that. It is rare for us that lyrics get written first before the song is made," adds Zarei.
One thing that the mosh pit can always expect from Korrosive is the energy they bring to their shows.
"I always think of a show, regardless of venue, as a performance that is meant to capture the crowd. And as a band, Korrosive always exudes that level of intensity during our shows."
Recommended for fans of Sodom, Kreator, Death, and Sepultura, "Toxic Apokalypse" was produced by Ben Erikson with mastering done by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Kreator, Cro-Mags, Municipal Waste, Soulfly).

Sentient Ruin is proud to announce its partnership with Brazilian experimental death metal cult ANTIMONUMENT, as we ready an enhanced and reworked reissue of their fascinating 2021 debut offering, “CONCEALMENT”, seeing the light on cassette tape and digitally as well as for the first time ever on vinyl format.

CVLT Nation has introduced the reissue via an exclusive premiere of the band’s new music video for the song “Entranced in Ruin”, one of the two brand new and previously unreleased tracks which enhance this reissue - you can checkout the feature and video https://cvltnation.com/witness-the-mysterious-experimental-death-metal-of-antimonument-entranced-in-ruin/
14.11.2022News ANTIMONUMENTDeath metal meets its future self. When almost everything has been said and done, contamination becomes the only escape, as new ways to interpret and reinvent the wheel must be found to keep setting the mind free and the genre moving forward, including creating clever and transformative crossover syncretisms with other styles and genres than can open the eye of terror along with new gateways to a higher dimension of chaos. And this is how Brazil's mysterious experimental death metal deconstructors Antimonument have approached their cryptic and bludgeoning craft: infusing it with all kinds of foreign (but adjacent) audial excoriations, including industrial noise, hardcore punk, cryptic no-wave and scathing power electronics, to render their experimental dark extreme metal a futuristic and multidimensional sonic warhead. Imagine a mix of Blasphemy, Carcass, Incantation, Khanate, Swans, Crucifix, Void, Godflesh and Controlled Bleeding, and you will be closer, yet still not completely within, the mutated experimental realm of devastation conceived by the Brazilian cult. And it doesn't end there. As an art studio/collective creating audio-visual experiences encompassing sound, visuals and video, Antimonument is more than just as a band, rather an explorative sensorial weapon of self determination. In this sense the Brazilian collective can be seen as an extreme metal counter-shade to the flourishing Brazilian experimental underground vanguard that in recent years has nurtured defiant bands like Test, Papangu, Deaf Kids etc. who've turned grindcore and hardcore inside out. It was only a matter of time before grim and abysmal black/death metal would receive the same treatment and be syphoned through one of the most exciting and fearless experimental micro-scenes that exists today, and Antimonument are the vessel which got us there.
Anitmonument's crushing debut album "Concealment" was first released in 2021 on CD in Brazil by Cianeto Discos and later the same year on cassette tape in the USA by Red Door Records. Shortly after Antimonument and Sentient Ruin began working on an enhanced reissue featuring brand new artwork, two brand new tracks, and an entirely new master by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios to serve as the release's first ever vinyl edition along with brand new digital/streaming and cassette tape versions to accompany it.
Concealment” is slated for a worldwide release on MC, LP, and digital formats on December 2 2022, and all formats are now pre-orderable via all our channels.
Thank you as always for your time and attention given to our releases.
Sincerely, Sentient Ruin

Featuring former members of Abhorrent and The Faceless, blackened/dissonant Death Metal trio MITHRIDATUM will release its debut album, HARROWING on CD, vinyl, and digital formats February 3, 2023 on Willowtip Records.
The album's first single and opening track, "Sojourn," is available to stream on YouTube and Bandcamp.
In the band's own words:
"Through mercurial waves beneath the moon's mournful glow, a trinity of incarnate beings that embody Mithridatum have conjured forth the entity known as Harrowing, an auditory pilgrimage traversing a gloomscape leaden with dissonance, despondency, isolation, entropy... into the abyss.
The name Mithridatum refers to the practice of achieving immunity against poisoning through self-administered, sub-lethal doses. The allegory is inescapable in its illustration of the unrelenting immiseration all incarnate beings must endure, willing or unwilling."

The air around you is heavy and dank, making it hard to breathe. There is a sound behind you. Was it a footstep or your imagination? Out of the corner of your eye, something moved. A wisp of hair or a shadow skulking about in the darkness?
You move through your surroundings, questioning everything you see, hear and feel. Did something just brush past you? Your arm starts to tingle and burn. You look down and see what look like claw marks running the length of your forearm. Did you reflexively scratch yourself or is there something else in the room?
Mist swirls around you and seems to take the shape of something vaguely familiar. Warm breaths on a cool night or something more sinister? You hear something up close, yet indistinct – it sounded like a laugh. Is this your imagination or are you about to encounter something demonic?
This is the world built by DiGregorio. A soundscape dense with the apprehension of the foreboding unknown; an ethereal sonic atmosphere inviting you into it’s cold depths.
Born in 2015 from a desire to meld music, folklore and history, founding member Suzanne DeCree created what she calls “Paranormetal”. Writing at least one song a week for a year, Suzanne ended up with her 19-song opus – House of Gregory, a fictionalized biography turning real-life paranormal experiences and struggles with her metaphorical demons into the tale of a haunted mansion.
Just after the release of the first half, House of Gregory, Chapter 1, her father suddenly passed away. As part of the grieving process, she interrupted her scheduled releases to re-record her Black and White EP, a classically influenced suite she had written years before after another sudden and tragic death.
With the release of House of Gregory, Chapter 2, the haunted house shuts its doors, but the journey continues…

CLADES – “ABSUMPTUS”

14.11.2022News CLADESLabel: Invima Records
Release date: October 25th 2022
Genre: Progressive Dissonant Death Metal
For fans of: Gorguts | Triptykon | Aeon Of Horus | Ulcerate
One amongst millions, one single burning star in the heavens, one light in the pantheon of evolution; yet one with a need to outstrip and outshine.  A designated place within a web of life would never be enough for this flawed creation, infected with arrogance and delusion, the drive to survive growing and mutating into a lust for domination and destruction. All must be diminished in its gaze; all must enhance the existence of the one or forfeit their right to live. Each light of life flickers out - extinguished, consumed, by that insatiable alien hunger – until only the Morningstar remains, cold and alone, in the empty, endless night.
As man has extricated himself from the entanglements of creation, severing the ties that bind him to nature and existence, declaring himself a ruler apart, a mad king that will damn all to destruction, so Clades stand apart from the various music scenes, the definitions of genre and the expectations that connect musicians and the devotees of their art. A decade in the making, debut album Absumptus is, in turn, both expansive and claustrophobic. It morphs through angular and distorted forms, challenging and confronting with stuttering rhythms and shocking shifts in tone and texture. It forcefully sheds the clinging skins of past inspiration and influence, constantly reaching for a place of freedom and imperious domination. Within the insistent, spiralling mantras of ‘Projection’ or the dark, irregular heartbeat of ‘Rumination’ lies a strange satisfaction, obtained through the transversing of bleak and punishing wastelands of sound. These songs stand outside the customary bounds of listening, offering a new perspectives, new angles and bitter new tastes. A fusion of the technical, the progressive, the dissonant and the extreme, Absumptus is not an album for those who cling to the well worn pathways like frightened children. Clades inhabit the shadowed places, where they feed on the fringes of reality, eating the certainties of existence one bite at a time, constantly growing in power.
Presented to the world by InViMa Records in digital and limited CD digipak format, with a 12-page lyric booklet bundled with a sheet music and tablature book for guitar and bass, Absumptus stands alone; a fiercely independent creation. For those who embrace the sound of confrontation, who revel in the tearing down of accepted monoliths, who harbour secret, unformed desires to step beyond the boundaries...Clades await you.

All songs (guitars, bass, and drum programming) are written and performed by Teren, including lyric
writing and vocal pattern designs. During the writing process, Teren recruited world-class musicians from around the globe to make his dark musical vision a reality.

Pittsburgh blackened and doomed death metal band Úzkost have announced the release of their new single "Mt'hr" on September 30th, 2022. "Mt'hr" is the first in a series of singles that the band will be releasing over the coming year. The forthcoming singles showcase a continuation of a new musical journey that the band started with the release of "Blood Debt" and changing their name from Slaves BC back in 2010.
Listen "Mt'hr" at this location: https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/zkost/mt-hr
Úzkost is a genre-blending nightmare from Pittsburgh, Pa that formed in 2010 under the name Slaves BC. With a slew of releases under their belt, the band spent the decade spiraling further into darkness with every new offering.
In 2022, the band has evolved its sound from what was once chaotic hardcore into a horrific and disorienting conglomeration of black metal, death metal, doom metal, and harsh noise. After a decade of shows, line-up changes, and musical exploration, Úzkost is poised to release their darkest material yet.

The much awaited new full length from Ashen Horde sees a huge progression and brings in elements from other genres. It doesn't hurt that they now have a full lineup that includes the Inferi/Equipoise vocalist, the drummer of Norse, and bassist of Abhoria. Listen to three of their songs from their album which are streaming on Bandcamp https://ashenhordeband.bandcamp.com/

Release Date - January 27th, 2023
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Immortal, Abigor, Enslaved, Ihsahn, Abhoria, Inferi, Death
What started off as a one-man band, Ashen Horde now boast of a lineup that has the vocalist of Inferi and Equipoise, the drummer of Norse and the bassist of Abhoria. They've expanded upon their sound like never before and it now showcases a terrific and fairly unique blend of black and death metal rife with both progressive elements and technical bits. Each song offers a new and detailed interpretation of the multi-faceted style and remains unpredictable and riveting. There's just so much happening in each one of them that they demand undivided attention and somehow, despite the perplexingly intricate nature of the compositions, there is remarkable coherency. The elaborate songs serve as chapters to bring to life the real story of the unsolved murder of Charles Bravo committed in 1876 and the concept has been given vivid artistic expression by Niklas Sundin of Dark Tranquillity. Fascinating through and through, ‘Antimony’ is an outstanding album in the style with exceptional performances by all involved.

Danish sludge metal act GRAVA have announced their new album "WEIGHT OF A GOD", due out November 28th 2022 via Aesthetic Death.

For fans of: Neurosis, Celeste, Buried Inside
Ahead of the album, the band are sharing the new single "Alight". The song is now premiering at No Clean Singing: stream it at https://www.nocleansinging.com/2022/11/04/an-ncs-premiere-grava-alight/

Songs seen through the eyes of the dying.
GRAVA spew forth a maelstrom of angst-ridden, emotive sludge – which emanates from a hardcore foundation and mentality.
Sludge heaviness, hardcore intensity – bleak desperation. Short tracks, that just sound dense, blackened and ugly - which are written and delivered with a real soul – just one that has been emptied of colour and hope. Amidst the blunt brutality there are brief interjections, moments of paradoxical beauty. Soon extinguished.
Every song on the album is an attempt to portray a human being's meeting with death. Inspired by historical narratives but also by happenings closer to the band, actively pursuing those moments through their music and lyrics. The resulting music has been expressive, fragmented and painful - you will find no complete narrative in the lyrics or musical structure, only the bits and pieces of the world.... as seen through the eyes of the dying.
“Weight of a God” is not an easy experience. It takes time to ingest and come to terms with the album. However, anyone who takes the time to become at one with these tracks will discover an album which urges repeated listening.
LP + MC versions to be released through Danish label VinylTroll.

Epic Power Metal act ARRAYAN PATH returns with 9th album, 2 years after the release of the highly acclaimed “THE MARBLE GATES TO APEIRON”.
The band’s new opus is titled “Thus Always to Tyrants” and it will be out on December 9th on CD and digital.
Musically, the new album is one of the band’s strongest efforts to date; one that includes several style variations that go beyond the usual epic-power style that the band has become known for. A couple of surprises are also included that are in a style unlike anything the band has done before.

“Thus Always to Tyrants” is also ARRAYAN PATH’s first “true” concept album in that the tracklisting follows the story in chronological order. The story is that of King Evagoras, the ruler of the Kingdom of Salamis in Cyprus.
Frontman Nicholas Leptos and the band’s driving force comments:
“We decided to address a great moment in the history of our country, Cyprus, and tell the tale of King Evagoras (one of the most important figures in Cypriot history). He was the ruler of the Kingdom of Salamis (not to be confused with the island of Salamis in Greece) and a brave warrior, politician and admirer of Hellenistic culture at the time (end of 5th century B.C. to beginning of 4th century B.C.).
The chronicle covers the origins of the story, the King’s life, death, wars, achievements and a short aftermath. There will be Usurpers, there will be Persians, there will be Spartans, battles and sieges, there will be blood!”

The new album features some guest appearances all of them contributing significantly to an astonishing result that is, above all, epic! These include Gary Wehrkamp (Shadow Gallery), Paolo Viani (Warlord), Enzo Donnaruma (Enzo and the Glory Ensemble), Louis Syrimis (Zivanished, Infected Syren), Harrys Pari (Minus One) and talented lyre player Christina Polycarpou.
Recorded at Take Away Studios in Cyprus, the album was produced by Slava Selin, while mixing and mastering was handled by Simone Mularoni at Domination studios in San Marino. Selin and Mularoni have each also contributed a lead solo. Cover and artwork by Giannis Nakos of Remedy Art Design.

GORGATRON will release the Agony Reborn EP November 4 on digital and cassette formats via Blood Blast Distribution. The cassette version is limited to 100 copies and also includes four exclusive live tracks on Side B.
The EP, which is the final release of the Blood Blast Distribution deal, consists of three original studio recordings and a cover of Sepultura's "Dead Embryonic Cells." GORGATRON is currently seeking a new label for release of the band's recently recorded full-length album. Interested parties should contact Cameron.Gorgatron@gmail.com
GORGATRON's sound is based on a “love of the riff” approach to writing and rooted in the old-school stylings of Death Metal and Thrash, one that comes across loud and clear on Agony Reborn. The EP is a product of what the band has dubbed the “Covid Sessions." As further explained by bassist Cameron Dewald: "We were on track to do a bunch of touring etc to support our last album Pathogenic Automation (2020) but clearly and for obvious reasons that didn’t happen… So instead we stayed as busy as we could in 2020 and 2021, played a few shows and hashed out some new tunes. The cover for 'Dead Embyronic Cells' was originally for Metal Injections Slay At Home series, but we ended up holding onto it and found a suitable home for it on this EP."

Polish black metal act Yfel 1710 is streaming its upcoming sophomore album “ZLATUJĄ SIĘ ĆMY” which is scheduled for a 4th November release via Pagan Records. 
Listen to the album in full: https://youtu.be/eNfIHkqil7k
The band commented: “Fall is their time. Time for the Moths, sent overnight, coming from beyond the boundary of our world, the causal world of mortals.

"The time of Death's envoys. Personal death, collective death, sometimes necessary, sometimes sublime, and sometimes a favour to someone or something. The moth is the butterfly of death. In Polish ethnography and folklore, the moth is associated with the souls of the dead, especially those who died suddenly or of premature death.
"Probably not every band today has its own Moth that flies down. Ours for sure - Hail, Skaven! Paweł Walesiak, rest in power and hate!
"The current October and November days are the time when Moths come together. From that side they come, they want to drink your live blood, the mirrors of their wings will blind you with a shadow, they will bring here the silence that is only There.
"So let the dragon wake up, let the viper fall asleep in its hand, and let the toad give up its juice.
"And let the Moths come together."
The artwork to “Zlatują się Ćmy” was done by Robert A. von Ritter Illustrations. The album was recorded at Willa Wisielców Studio and Bat Studio, mixed and mastered by Michał Grabowski, blackteammedia.pl
Yfel 1710 released its debut album “Willa Wisielców” in 2020 and a split with Martwa Aura “Kali Yuga Boys” earlier in February 2022. The new album was recorded between October 2020 and March 2022 by Klimorh (also known from Non Opus Dei, Narrenwind, Alne), Góral (Non Opus Dei, ex - Gorycz), Skaven (ex - Black Altar) and Pająk (Ash Devili). 
"Zlatują się Ćmy" is dedicated to the memory of the band’s drummer Paweł "Skaven" Walesiak (1980 - 2020). To the Altars in Hell!

Australian funeral doom metal meets classical music act ESTRANGEMENT are now proudly releasing their brand new single "DETRITIVORE", which is taken from the band's upcoming album "DISFIGUREMENTALITY", due out November 25th 2022 via Aesthetic Death.
For fans of: Esoteric, My Dying Bride, Dissection, Skepticism, (early) Samael
"Detritivore" is now streaming at Toilet Ov Hell. Check it out https://toiletovhell.com/track-premiere-estrangement-detritivore/

The first single "The Light Unshown" is still available at https://estrangement.bandcamp.com/album/disfigurementality
Funereal-Flamenca-Nuclear-Jazz-Fusion-End-of-World Music - an eclectic doom metal masterpiece.
Aesthetic Death label manager Stu Gregg states:
"JS is not only a man of infinite wisdom and creativity – but a man of his word. Following the split (with Begrabnis, Weird Truth, 2016) he said he had an album brewing inside, with some great ideas. Following the excellent work on display in ESTRANGEMENT’s demo (2014) and split, it was certainly something that grabbed my interest.
We agreed to work on this together, spat on our palms and shook hands – an oath not to be broken. Years later that agreement comes to fruition.
'Disfigurementality' has been a highly anticipated release within the extreme doom scene – with many fans of the genre recognising the potential of this unique band.
The album brings together and melds various styles, with authentic traces of classical music, black metal, jazz fusion and even flamenco – however, at its core, 'Disfigurementality' remains a piece of extreme doom excellence.
ESTRANGEMENT have managed to solidify and expand upon the creativity of previous works, both through composition but also musically through the use of of flute, violin and double bass through the album. The string arrangements range from the soaring and sublime, to the excruciatingly harsh.
Another notable feature of the album is the wide range of vocals – from the extreme doom growls that JS has as a trademark – yet notably the use of howling violent screams, to throat singing, to liturgical chant, all forging different emotions throughout the album.
'Disfigurementality' has the melancholic beauty of My Dying Bride, it has the obscure darkness of Unholy – but it has much more to explore. It is an album of beauty, beguilement and darkness. It will lead you on a journey filled with abrupt changes, seductive tangents and crushing heaviness. It demands the attention that should be given to any great album – go with its unique flow and be richly rewarded.
Not only have ESTRANGEMENT created a fantastic full length debut album – they have created an album that will establish them as leaders in the extreme doom genre, and beyond".

As the release of their highly-anticipated new album, RITUALS OF DEATH, draws near, Midwest death machine CASKET ROBBERY has unleashed the official music video for album track "POST-MORTEM."
The video was filmed in the "Autopsy Room" at Brodhead Manor, a well-known abandoned schoolhouse and haunted attraction in Southern Wisconsin.
Vocalist Megan Orvold-Scheider comments on the concept behind the horror-inspired video. "It tells the incredibly dark story of a body being autopsied and things being found that are very far from normal. A being trapped in a body still very much alive-but dormant, as the autopsy awakens the curses placed upon her to keep her dormant."
The world premiere of "Post-Mortem" comes courtesy of Decibel Magazine. Watch the video at https://www.decibelmagazine.com/2022/11/03/video-premiere-casket-robbery-post-mortem/

MINENFELD contribute one track that impressively sets your last moment on this planet to music: hiding in the trench, waiting for the gun in your back to stop firing and as soon as you hear the whistle, you have to go and die. This track is a sonic proof, that the war on nationalism may never end!
The other side presents REPULSIVE FEAST in their goriest shape until date. Two tracks of relentless bloodshed induced by the sickness that indwells humanity. Murdering others as excitement, eating the corpse for pleasure. Your ears gonna bleed from disgust!

Come and feast at the repulsive fusion of death metal and grindcore. After gaining decent recognition last year with the "Brewing Rancid Stew" EP, the German gruesome trio returns to the sound of classic and abrasive death/grind riffing from the masters of gore under the name "Meat Hook Mutilation".
The new material is beyond the epitome of sickness - a total of four tracks, clocking under 10 minutes of grinding death's breath, that will leave the listeners ear bleeding from disgust.
Each track easily stands out on its own, from „The Dead Walk at Night“ to "Vapour Torture" that allows the music to be blazingly fast and furious but never becomes dull. Unlike its predecessor, "Meat Hook Mutilation" drifts into their most violent and primitive works.
The record is housed in a black poly-lined inner sleeve and a fold out cover made of 300gsm uncoated cardboard and includes a free digital download code.

In Darkness Alone is the third full length release from SCARS OF THE FLESH, featuring five brand new original tracks plus four cover songs.

Bringing epic song structures, mixed with brutality, melody and sheer emotion, In Darkness Alone sets to make a definitive mark in a genre already defined by many great bands, yet without sounding like mere mimicry.

Bio:
Scars of the Flesh is a Melodic Blackened Death Metal Band from San Antonio, TX, created in 2014 by Guitarists Bryan Eckermann (Solo Artist, ex-Wings of Abaddon), Derek Russell and Vocalist Kobey Lange (Cerebral Desecration, ex-Wings of Abaddon). Their debut album Harvest of Souls was released in 2017 to a wide positive online reaction, 20,000+ views on the Youtube stream and many album sales encouraged the members to push the band forward. 2020 saw the release of the second album Reaching into the Void, still crafted by only the three members alone, but a first live show was booked with fill-in members on drums and bass to celebrate the release and finally bring the band to the stage. Immediately after, Covid became a reality, and had prevented much progress throughout the next year and a half. But the work continued, and a new full lineup was soon in place with adding Collyn Rios (Cerebral Desecration, Black Jackal) on drums, and Robert O'Briant (The Hanged Man's Curse, ex-Wings of Abaddon) on bass. Kicking off their return to the stage, was a battle for the Wacken festival in Texas as well as several other local shows. Now in November 2022 they return with their third album In Darkness Alone, featuring five new original tracks as well as four cover songs. Mixing a perfect blend of dark atmosphere, melody and brutality. This new release looks to carve the name Scars of the Flesh into the minds of all...

U.S. Metal Band MALUS DEXTRA signed a deal with Wormholedeath for their EP "III, Pt.1", due for release on November 25th, 2022.

6.1.2022News MALUS DEXTRABand statement:
We are extremely excited for the next growth chapter through the signing with WormholeDeath, we feel this was the right step for us currently and are looking forward to our future together. When it comes to the upcoming release its crazy to think about, being an underground band self-funded in everything we have done to date here we are making yet another album, Malus Dextra III is unlike any other album we have released thus far, we are dropping this as a multi-part release for the fans and to do what we do best, challenge the idea of norm. With part 1 we cut through the BS and give a raw delivery of how we feel, you could say this is almost a live album with the limited rehearsal, slide-in members, and no tied-down structure, all combined to make what we felt is the purest form of what we have to offer. Lyrically we dance around the board a little, but the essential theme is to question everyone and trust no one. There is so much divide in our country right now and even abroad, we try our best to break all the BS down to the individual and how we and countless others feel amidst all the global chaos and corruption. In short, Malus Dextra III is raw, it’s real, and it’s controlled chaos in its purest form.
Malus Dextra hails from St. Louis, MO. where guitarist Justin Ruesch (former D-Railed/Brutal Harmony) resides, formed in 2017 after recruiting vocalist Wayne Allison (former A Strand of Fate/Victims of Life) with the intent to bring the world music that was not limited to boundaries of genre and subgenres. Although the core of the band is metal the music speaks to the masses for fans ranging from Killswitch Engage to Slayer to I Prevail, the two entered Encapsulated Studios to record the debut “Self-Titled” album, released Oct 31, 2017, and was supported with mid-west and upper east coast touring in 2018. The band's second full-length album titled “The Gate” was released Oct 31, 2020, supported by mid-west touring, followed by dual releases “Bangin Bionic Beats” a 6 song EP featuring tracks from both the “Self Titled” and “The Gate” remixed and reimagined by John McLucas from McLucas Studios (CA), and “A Somber Moment” a 6 song softer acoustic side from the artist recorded at Encapsulated Studios with producer/engineer Gabe Usery, both Eps released on Oct 31, 2021. Shortly before the recording of “A Somber Moment” the band welcomed two new members, Bassist Alex Smick (former Warheadd) and Guitarist Justin Keane (Blackdeth). 2022 Malus Dextra have once again stepped into Encapsulated Studios to record tracks for their 3rd full-length album titled “III” making this their 5th studio album released. The album is slated to be a multipart release with “Part 1” released in late 2022. “Tomorrow” the first single from the album released March 25th, 2022 on all streaming platforms.

After the recent release of the widely acclaimed Devenial Verdict debut full length, it's almost time for dissonant death metal label mates Dysgnostic to unleash their debut album. But before that another captivating song has been premiered, this time by Toilet ov Hell and they do it in their own inimitable style. You can find the feature at this link.  https://toiletovhell.com/premiere-dysgnostic-nothings-embrace/

"an avant-garde dissonant death metal outfit that reaches back even further in the supposed evolutionary chain and takes inspiration from ancestors like Ulcerate, Gorguts, and similar acts"
DYSGNOSTIC – “SCAR ECHOES “
6.1.2022News DysgnosticGenre - Dissonant Death Metal
Release Date - November 11th, 2022
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Ulcerate, Sunless, Aeviterne, Gorguts, Devenial Verdict, Norse, Deathspell Omega
Known as Defilementory in a previous avatar, the critically acclaimed Danish death metal band were rechristened Dysgnostic to reflect a more contemporary direction of music that's more dissonant, technical and even atmospheric in its own dark, mysterious way. On their debut full length, the accomplished musicians find little trouble in weaving together songs that are complex yet engaging, offering undulating moments of intensity as well as enveloping dissonant ambience. The process is so deftly done that it almost has a hypnotic effect on you, despite the music getting challenging at times, and keeps your attention riveted through it all. Upholding the compelling sinuous approach, each of the songs manage to offer a slightly different expression, a glimpse into another dark dimension, and find ways to remain with you long after the album is over. Invariably, the album seeps into your consciousness, its cajoling darkness and wistful tunes making the process easier. The dreamier songs toward the end of the album complete the ritual and take over the possession of your mind, body and soul, as intended.

HELLFEKTED – “DEATH OF IRON” (SINGLE)
6.1.2022News HellfektedLabel: Independent Release
Release date: November 4th 2022
Genre: Thrash/Death Metal
For fans of: Onslaught | Death | Bolt Thrower | Destruction
With axe or noose or knife; or with his gnarled and malformed hands and prodigious strength...he is a life-taking machine. His hood has become his face and death his reason to breathe. Nothing exists beyond the rush of blood, the breaking of bones and the death rattle that signifies another task complete. He is the executioner; any other name lost in a past hidden behind a curtain of crimson rain...
Death Of Iron is the new single from the UK’s rising extreme metal executioners, Hellfekted - and the band’s most focussed and accomplished release to date. The crisp, crunching riffs delivered by frontman Liam Stubbs and his new partner in six string destruction, Rebecca Webster, bite down harder than ever before, snarling above the lead weight rhythmic foundations laid down by bassist Chris Brownrigg and another new recruit, drummer extraordinaire Matt Faulks. Since the release of their 2019 debut single, Fire At Will, Hellfekted have been known for their raw, blistering energy and blackened thrash attack, but with Death Of Iron there’s a newfound maturity in evidence - a colossal hammer blow of power laced with melodic awareness and song writing skill. Stubbs’ vocals tear at the throat with an imperious venom and the guitar solos scythe through the massed ranks of steel clad riffs. The fury of thrash, the muscle and firepower of death metal and an ominous shadow of darkness combine with a new level of skill and gritted-teeth control to elevate Hellfekted to heights only hinted at by their previous output. The band’s 2020 album Woe To The Kingdom Of Blood garnered an impressive array of plaudits and critical acclaim, but that was just the beginning. Death Of Iron is the herald of a new age of Hellfekted...an incendiary era of metallic might is dawning!
Recorded at Sphynx Studios (Fleshgod Apocalypse etc) Death Of Iron sounds absolutely devastating, combining a vicious, serrated edge with stunning clarity that allows every thunderous drum fill, every caustic lyric to be appreciated. Complete with artwork created by Nino Andaresta (Witchpit, Nocturnal, Necromantia etc) this is one of the most compelling and convincing singles of the year. Just wait until the new album hits…

Chris Brownrigg – Bass/Backing Vocals

Now, 5 years after its release, there is still a high demand for it among metal music fans. Considering that Infernö Records unfortunately no longer exists, we teamed up with Fighter Records and decided to print a new edition of the album that will be available soon in the form of CD, 12"LP and Cassette. We're so happy about this collaboration! We are Fighters!

…is not about pushing any boundaries in the race of speed, nastiness, or new techniques. We are just about… delivering solid grindcore! Swedish grindcore act Sickrecy, short for sick-secrecy, meaning that we as people under our
rulers are on a need-to-know basis and we clearly don’t need to know anything but to obey and pay, was formed in late 2019/early 2020 by Martin Eriksson who soon teamed up with Marcus Dahl and Adde Mitroulis to make the foundation of Sickrecy.
Adde Mitroulis, well known from bands such as Birdflesh and General Surgery is no stranger in this line of duty, With numerous albums on his conscience and three releases in 2021, he clearly knows how to handle a microphone and his vocals are significant to the sound of Sickrecy. Marcus Dahl and Martin Eriksson hail from the crust and death act World in Ruins and the blackened industrial death metal band Damned to Downfall, who both put out albums in 2021. You could say that Sickrecy is somewhat of a blend between all of our four bands but the main inspiration comes from the early 90’s underground scene.
In July 2021 we released our 6 track EP "First World Anxiety", which is a meltingpot of all the things that we are about. It includes the fast, extreme and the blasts mixed with crust, d-beat and death metal. The lyrics cuts through with social awareness and topics like a decreasing free speech, intolerance and the problems with globalization are all being
In 2022 we joined forces with SELFMADEGOD rec to release our first full-length album, Salvation through tyranny, on cd. The tape version will once again be released by Bullwhip rec.

Just in case Cannibal Corpse thought that they were going to romp unopposed to the death metal title in 2021, along comes Sickrecy… It’s abundantly clear that First World Anxiety is the product of experienced hands, well used to crafting such a deliciously diabolic noise - Dan Barnes from the Razors edge 2021.
Most importantly, it’s a rock solid little ripper, six songs in 17 minutes, which is positively epic by grindcore standards and sometimes a good ass-kicking is all that you really need - Andrew Edmunds from Your last rites 2021
First World Anxiety is a blazing, violent eruption of pissed-off attitude, gnarled, infectious riffs, and wily songwriting smarts. In this respect, Sickrecy nails some key points to successful grind. Overall, First World Anxiety is a wonderfully fun 16 min hellride, presenting a classy, first-rate example of oldschool grind, constructing a robust platform for greater things to come - Angry metal guy 2022.
the title track are assaulted with such gusto that you’ll stop barking out the names of bands the track reminds you of after about ten seconds to get involved in the more pressing task of thrashing around your living quarters highlight nomination is pretty redundant when every track delivers what is intended by it’s progenitors in spades. Up the punx, and more power to Sickrecy - more soon please - Sentinel daily 2021.…
Sickrecy are quick on their feet and effortlessly flow between grind, death and crust (d-beats, of course always elevate whatever they’re involved in), and they write really good songs. Sometimes it’s as simple as that - Toilet of hell 2021

14. Weissenborn Song II: A Farewell Letter To George

Teething was formed in 2011 in Madrid, Spain, home of the fountain of the fallen angel. Due to lack of creativity, they fuse their love for Napalm Death and Hatebreed in one. The bands collage driven visuals and black humor compliments their overuse of breakdowns. Possibly the only grindcore band to release an action figure.
In good punk fashion, Teething has released twelve EP's / splits and two full lengths albums.
They have toured Europe five times, South-East Asia once and played festivals like Download Festival, Obscene Extreme, Fluff Fest, Resurrection Fest, Incubate and Bloodshed. Somehow they managed to play short runs with Napalm Death, Exhumed, Despise You, and Magrudergrind.
In a nutshell: four hardcore dudes playing grindcore. Hustle beats talent.

ATARAXIA – „POMEGRANATE - THE CHANT OF THE ELEMENTALS “
Ataraxia, the Italian neoclassical darkwave band founded in 1990, will release its 28th studio album, “Pomegranate - The Chant Of The Elementals”, via The Circle Music on 21 September 2021. 
“Pomegranate - The Chant Of The Elementals” takes the listener on a unique musical journey, in a mystical walk through space-time between the past, the present and the future. 
Ataraxia commented: “The new Ataraxia album is a poetic race through the essence of the elements constantly inspired by the elemental spirits of nature to reach the athanor and embody the conjunctio oppositorum or alchemical marriage.
The white fire of heaven has brought us to fusion with Hlara Aralh, bearer of the courage of the heart. The unfolding of the notes infuses us with a comprehensive and pervading sense of freedom and lightness. The tongues of crystal flame that purify without burning envelop us and lead us to the purest, most instinctive and vivifying feeling. A question resounds "Do you still dream your dream?" while the salamanders, live embers, lead us in the presence of Helios, the Sun, and we are asked: "Do you still feel the source?"
The alchemical journey of the hero, the journey of all of us, goes on and enters the earth element represented by the depths of the forest and the cosmic dance of the deer.”
“Pomegranate - The Chant Of The Elementals” will be released in five formats: luxurious boxset, gold vinyl, A5 Digipack CD, Jewel Case CD and digital. It is now available for pre-order via The Circle Music
Ataraxia is an Italian ensemble of artists who explore and create music, poetry and visual art and who dedicated their lives to the ‘act of creation’.

Maryland-based Crossover Thrash Metal quintet NINTH REALM have partnered with Toilet ov Hell for the exclusive premiere of forthcoming album A FATE UNBROKEN. Stream it below!
 https://toiletovhell.com/album-premiere-ninth-realm-a-fate-unbroken/
6.1.2022News NINTH REALMFFO: Power Trip, Eternal Champion, High Command, Iron Age
"The raw aggression throughout evokes the rough-and-tumble feel of close quarters battle and steel on steel. The sparing use of effects and synths for the album’s bigger moments do a great job of evoking a sense of ancient majesty and power; even at its stompiest, moshiest moments, the album oozes with atmosphere. Whether you’re looking to dive into a fantasy realm or just have a headbanging good time, Ninth Realm has your back."- Toilet ov Hell
NINTH REALM will release debut full-length album A Fate Unbroken November 4 on Mercenary Press. The album is a perfect blend of of crossover thrash and traditional heavy metal that represents the band's refined vision.
Pre-Order:
https://ninthrealmmd.bandcamp.com/album/a-fate-unbroken
https://mercenarypress.bandcamp.com/album/a-fate-unbroken
A Fate Unbroken is a nine-track album that takes the influence of the widest range of heavy metal, 80s-toned thrash, death thrash, and hardcore that the decisive genres have to offer. Not only do the riffs, consistent guitar solos, and blackened vocals take the listener through a whirlwind of Slayer/Demolition Hammer era thrash metal, but the lyricism and quintessential raw fantasy style of their art and themes harken back to a Frank Frazetta/Ralph Bakshi age of pure Sword & Sorcery. A Fate Unbroken, for all intents and purposes, is a Maryland band’s attempt to bring a reunion of heavy metal and hardcore punk back to its raw, old-school roots.
Basing their lyricism and overall theme around the original fantasy realm of Tythorin, NINTH REALM delivers an electrifying synthesis of traditional heavy metal and hardcore punk for fans of both respective genres to enjoy.
Pulling from a range of influences that span everything between blackened thrash to old-school death metal, the music of NINTH REALM rips and tears with a ferocity and cadence that perfectly encapsulates the epic scale and grisly atmosphere of grim-dark fantasy. Between the use of aggressive thrash d-beat and viscerally direct song structure of classic metal acts such as Celtic Frost, combined with the melodic riffage of classic bands like Testament/Mercyful Fate, and an added twist of Cro-Mags/Leeway style crossover, NINTH REALM wields what is perhaps one of the most poignant new sounds to emerge from the metal underground in recent memory.
Track Listing:
1. Gates of Tythorin
2. Plea to the Heavens 
3. Witches Choir
4. Ondreis
5. Evoke Thy Wrath
6. Armageddon's Howl
7. The Burning Wanderer
8. Eternal Lance
9. A Fate Unbroken

Bio:
Sharing a bond for all things heavy metal and high fantasy, college classmates Joey Burke (drummer) and Liam McMahon (lead guitarist) joined forces in the fall of 2018, writing and practicing every week to produce the 2019 demo, Gates of Tythorin. Later adding Jared Henry (bassist) and Ben Hageage (vocalist) to the mix, Ninth Realm solidified their sound with their succeeding 2020 EP, All Hail Treachery. In 2022, to offer a glimpse at what is to come with their debut LP, Ninth Realm released Ondreis MMXXII, a promo tape featuring two songs that both share a track space on the debut full-length record.

THE WOLVES OF AVALON – “Y GODODDIN”

6.1.2022News The Wolves Of AvalonLabel: Godreah Records
Release date: November 25th 2022
Genre: Progressive Pagan/Folk Metal
For fans of: Skyclad | Drudkh | Primordial | Forefather
With golden mead singing songs of heroism in their blood they rode forth through the morning mists, each heart pledged to victory or death. With swords, spears and bravery beyond measure they crashed into the swarming mass of the invaders. Like dogs of war they fought upon that field drowned in blood, beneath the circling ravens, till all but three were gone. They died for Mynyddawg Mwynfawr, for Gododdin, for the North and now they ride for eternity, singing their songs of war in the dreams of those who would remember them.
It is time to step back through the ages once more with The Wolves Of Avalon, to wander the pages of history and discover the oft forgotten stories of Britain’s past. Formed in 2009 by Metatron (The Meads Of Asphodel) and song writer James Marinos, the band’s fourth album, Y Gododdin, brings us a vision of the Gododdin, northern warriors whose battles against the Angle tribes are documented in ancient Welsh poems by the bard Aneirin. The Wolves’ passion for their island’s history infuses every note of the songs that form Y Gododdin, effortlessly captivating and transporting the listener to ancient times; times of untarnished natural beauty, times of strength and honour but also times of blood and hardship. From the first enticing notes of ‘Through The Murdering Night’, on to the glorious, evocative thunder of ‘The Shining Company’  to the ever-evolving melancholic majesty of ‘Dead Men’s Cloaks’ Y Gododdin is an unfolding dream that blends the best of metal and folk in a dramatic cauldron of creativity. Different timbres of voice and song bring breathtaking life to music that embraces an array of influences and yet still stands proudly alone. With Y Gododdin The Wolves Of Avalon will stir your blood, lift your heart and fire your imagination like never before.No strangers to collaboration, having previously worked with the likes of Sigh and Primordial, this time The Wolves have drawn upon the unique and varied talents of Tony ‘Demolition Man’ Dolan (Venom Inc), Thurios (Drudkh), Hoest (Taake), Wulfstan (Forefather) and Nico Millar (Aklash) to bring different touches of magic to their work, as well as highly regarded folk musicians from around the world. The results are stunning. Y Gododdin will be released by Godreah Records on digital and black/white splatter vinyl versions on November 25th. Take up your sword and walk with The Wolves Of Avalon through the undying legends of the past.

ENTARTUNG – “PESTA”
CD | TAPE | DIGITAL
Info
• Noble black cassette with silver on-body print and j-card. , Ltd. 100
• Noble Jewelcase Edition with 4-Page Booklet
Two years after their highly acclaimed opus „Maleficae Arts“, Belgian coven Entartung returns with a brand new EP entitled „Pesta“. In a scene full of fakers and shysters, the three man band, which features members from Rituals of the Dead Hand and Slithering Decay, quickly rose to power with their crafty hymns and dedication to occultism. „Pesta“ encorporated all the elements that made their past records instant classics and even further expands on them.
The two tracks included are definitely Black Metal in its truest and most essential form. The riffing is hypnotic but still menacing and the melancholy and atmosphere may remind some of past Drudkh recordings, only with a more orthodox and dark feel similar to earlier Finnish bands. Despite its crisp and professional production, the matertial on „Pesta“ is still firmly rooted in the tradition of old school Black Metal art with a genuinely occult and majestic feel.
In this quarter of an hour, Entartung prove their skill for complexity, songwriting and atmosphere once again. Highly recommended for any fan of real Black Metal!

HARSH NOISE ALCHEMY FROM RUSSIA
 Info
After Womb 11 quickly rose to fame in Ritual Industrial circles and those select few that can fathom true Industrial madness in the old vein, the anonymous mastermind from the rugged badlands of Russia launches another sonic attack: Logos. Referring to the awakened inner divinity of divine intellect, Logos presents raw and analogue Harsh Noise, which utilises solely organic soundsources and renounces the usage of synthesizers and overdubs. This results in a dynamism and character which is often sought in vain in the bland, generic scene of our times.
The sounds themselves are nothing short of bestial and primal waves of chaos that always flow freely and proudly, while still seeming composed. The attentive listener may feel reminded of some of the current heroes of the international noise scene like Yana or Nuori Veri, whose approach and sounds also focus on less modern and slick presentation in favor of hands on organic results, but will also acknowledge the menacing darkness and occult death worship that looms behind the tasty variations and crumbling walls of morbid crackles and oscillating waves, reminiscent of 80ies obscurities. Although these respective aspects are all not new per se, the way Logos mixes and arranges them appears highly innovative and fresh, proving once again that contemporary Industrial Noise is certainly no soulless worship of a more glorious past, but as vibrant and alive as ever.
As opposed to some more juvenile interpretations found in lesser projects and some extreme metal, the genuine Qliphothic tradition of utter blackness forms a truly unholy union with the sound, making for a listening experience that is as unsettling to the unknowing as it is ecstatic to the initiate. Rough xerox artwork and track titles like „Qliphothic Vampyrism“ or „Lilith Footjob Adorer“ blend Industrial libertinage with the anti-cosmic ideology of Theistic Satanism, while still claiming a distinct identity.
Logos is Harsh Noise alchemy at its best and this debut is something that stands firmly opposed to the safe shallowness of our new age, while upholding the spirit of the earliest days of Post-Industrial madness in all its lawless glory. Due to its aristocratic nature, this is certainly not a crowdpleaser, but still highly recommended to the elect.

JENNE888 – “MOTHER”
TAPE | DIGITAL
Info
• Noble transparent-blue cassette with silver on-body print and j-card. , Ltd. 100
Jenne888 is a newcomer to the scene and presents great electronica with his debut release „Mother“. Despite not having any previous output to show, this short but sweet tape is an instant win. Refined Ambient soundscapes are paired up with tasty and full analogue Synthesizer sounds, causing an orgasmic marriage of sounds.
Despite the free-flow of Jenne888's material, patterns and loose melodies appear at just the right time, just to be reabsorbed into the wavering lake of thick oscillation. Absolutely mandatory for anyone interested in classy electronic music!

CHAOS CASCADE/RXAXPXE – “LOAD YOUR GUNS”
TAPE BOX | DIGITAL
• Limited to 100 Tape Boxes
Info
Chaos Cascade and RxAxPxE are an iconic duo which has already delivered various combined onslaughts, such as a split CD on Phosgen Records, a 7“ on Hate Mail Records and collaborations together with Will over Matter. This newest attack „Load your Guns“ can be seen as yet another exercise in hatred that showcases the blackened Noise style both of these projects are known and feared for. Thematically, this EP revolves around war and armed struggle, a theme which the sounds convey perfectly.
Chaos Cascade's contribution once again proves the immence progress the project has made. The underlying oscillations are full but still harsh, the additional sounds have a ripping and free quality known from more brutal classic Power Electronics assaults. Both the shrill feedback and commanding beats carry the gurgling vocals along the entirety of the track and the atmosphere is that of absolute scorn.
RxAxPxE's track comes creeping up to the listener like a true wave of pestilence. Minimalism and droning frequencies form a monolith of dark PE that grows ever more tense and violent. There is a constant trace of sharp but lingering feedback, reminiscent of the glorious old days of Post Mortem Power Electronics and the frantic vocal performance, which is a tad more dominant than in other recent recordings of RxAxPxE, tops the track off nicely.
All in all, „Load your Guns“ is another example in brutal might carried out by Chaos Cascade and RxAxPxE, which shows the strong sides of both artists that have always complemented each other perfectly. Despite the high level of finesse, the overall feeling of this release is that of a blunt fist to the face – and you don't want it any other way!

Abhabaniyastral Samsarimplication is the consequence of ineliminable yogisolationary practices and meticulous exploitation of primal sanatana knowledge filtered through rashayanic paleo-enzymes, unfurled onto the synapsidal slavo-gynarchy. Palindromic primordial manifestations, exponentially multiplicative kama-tantras and eschatological hadean enlightenment is concentrated, culminated and adulterated is inscribed through autonomous oscillations and cyclic dev-monic acharita resolute to nauseate the frail and fragile but, entice the superior in the perpetual quest to administer the shashbhyatatvyic mastery Vishvabhuta.

ROTAT – “DISFIGURED ONANIST”
CD | DIGITAL
HARSH NOISE LEGEND FROM FINLAND
• Noble Jewelcase Edition with 4-Page Booklet
Info
Since giving his first signs of life in 2015, ROTAT has been among the hottest newcomers of the prolific and innovative Finnish Harsh Noise scene. When looking at the already sizeable discography, which features entries on acclaimed labels such as Freak Animal, Narcolepsia and Obsessive Fundamental Realism, it is not surprising to see where this appreciation stems from.
The sounds are always well-crafted and full of life, crisp and flow together in nifty arrangements. There is a definitely European nature to the dirt and organic vibe of Rotat's Noise, oftentimes evoking feelings of Smell and Quim, old school Russian metaljunk and maybe even traces of German Noise peculiarities, but ROTAT has so much own identity and drive that it must be described as what it is: a wholly new type of beast. The demented humour the mastermind behind the project utilises tops this feeling off nicely, making this outfit from Finland unlike anything one hears in Industrial Noise nowadays.
The recent full-length "Disfigured Onanist" takes all the aspects Rotat is loved (and hated) for and cranks them up a notch. Walls of filth rise and fall, ripping feedback squeals over the sounds of metal sheets and power tools and oddly enticing modulation. Blocks of heavy sound manage to be brutish but still subtle at the same time and create atmospheres of unhinged lust and celebration of sonic mayhem, which immediately make you see the hairy, heavy-set screwball in his noise shed clanking on bizarre instruments.
Rotat's "Disfigured Onanist" is truly a pulverising experience. Everything feels hands-on and thought-out, while still being no holds barred Noise violence, which has nothing hip or polished about it. Sonic harsh mastery at its best and not to be missed by any aficionado!
All music by ROTAT, 2020/2021. Recorded and Assembled at Bearnest, Finland, 2020. Mastered by PD. Cover Layout by J.S. Executive Production by Dunkelheit Produktionen. All Rights Reserved.

VINYL SHIPS SOON

Info
Citalopram Shunyata, a further project by Scatmother mastermind Hagen Verkhaner, unleashes another full-length album entitled "Moist Nobility". Since its first releases back in 2018 (although there had been finished material and focussed experimentation long before that), Citalopram Shunyata has been an insider tip among fans of Harsh Noise of the deep and more European ilk, conjuring up feelings of similarity towards acts like Treriksröset, Sewer Election and Vomir. Creative but always natural and hands-on analogue modulation meets vintage pornography and semi-classy Sleaze.
"Moist Nobility" stays true to the virtues that made the recent releases like the debut full-length "Vanilla Bloodshame" or the various splits with artists like Rotat or Vomir appreciated new entries in the international Noise Landscape, but marks yet another step in evolution for this unique project. There is of course the analogue blast and ripping Feedback that the maniacs have come to appreciate but also even more reliance of detail and finesse in layering the respective elements to form a full experience of analogue noise that finds the perfect sweet spot between filthy murk and nowadays dynamics.
Clearly, Citalopram Shunyata's "Moist Nobility" comes highly recommended to those who appreciate rugged but skilled harsh Sound Art with a sinister but erotically playful undertone. Verkhaner demonstrates that this project is not merely a reproduction of Scatmother but a fresh and well fleshed-out project that can easily survive on its own. Do not miss!

VITTRA – “BLASPHEMY BLUES”
29.10.2022 News VittraUrsprünglich „Vildvittra“ genannt, basierend auf Astrid Lindgrens Charakteren aus „Ronja Räubertochter", entwickelte sich der Name des Quartetts später zu Vittra, inspiriert von den Fabelwesen schwedischer Volksgeschichten. Und auch wenn schwedischer Folk ein wiederkehrendes Thema ist, das sich durch ihre Musik webt, ist die Band fest im Melodic Death und Thrash Metal verwurzelt, stark beeinflusst von Dissection, frühen In Flames, Megadeth und At The Gates.
2017 von David Döragrip (Gesang) und Johan Murmester (Gitarre) gegründet, wurde die Besetzung 2018 komplettiert, als Alex Smith (Schlagzeug) und Gustav Svensson (Bass) der Band beitraten. Im Studio und auf der Bühne wird Vittra seit 2021 auch von Lars Elofsson an der Leadgitarre begleitet. Im selben Jahr veröffentlichten Vittra ihre Debüt-EP “Wardens”, produziert in den SolnaSound Production Studios, Schweden, mit Unterstützung von Simon Johansson (Soilwork, Wolf). Nur wenige Monate später kehrten sie erneut bei SolnaSound ein – diesmal unterstützt von Simon und Mike Wead (King Diamond, Mercyful Fate) – und im April 2022 wurde “Blasphemy Blues” fertiggestellt. Lawrence Mackrory (Bloodbath, Lik, Firespawn) kümmerte sich um Mix und Mastering. Hjules erstellte das Cover-Artwork.
“Blasphemy Blues” von Vittra wird am 11.11.2022 via BORDER MUSIC erscheinen .

Das Death-Metal-Kommando HYPNOS hat die Premiere des neuen Musikvideos „IN GRIEF / TOO OLD TO CRY“ vom Album „THE BLACKCROW“ am Mittwoch, den 02.11.2022 vorbereitet. Das bewusst und symbolisch gewählte Datum für die „Remembrance of the Dead"-Feiertag in ihren Heimatländern, soll an mehr als 2 Dutzend Freunde der Gruppe aus der Musikindustrie erinnern, die nicht mehr unter uns sind. Frontmann Bruno fügt hinzu: „Wir haben in den langen Jahrzehnten unserer Karriere viele Menschen kennengelernt, mit denen wir uns mehr als andere angefreundet haben, deren Lebenskerze aber vor uns erloschen ist. Einige von ihnen werden wir im neuen Videoclip erwähnen Wir wissen, dass dies nur die Spitze des Eisbergs ist und dass es in der Metal-Szene noch viel mehr Musiker, Musikveranstalter, Journalisten und Verleger gibt, die wir am meisten vermissen, und leider ist die Erinnerung das einzige, wofür wir tun können Unserer ist 10 Minuten und 22 Sekunden lang…….“
Bisher wurde das letzte HYPNOS-Album „The Blackcrow“ in voller Länge vor ziemlich genau 2 Jahren, am 30. Oktober 2020, von Einheit Produktionen (CD), oder Monster Nation (LP) veröffentlicht, aber seine umfangreichere Konzertunterstützung war es durch Covid-Einschränkungen behindert. Der Track „In Grief / Too Old to Cry“ ist der letzte auf dem Album und mit einer Länge von rund 10 Minuten der längste in der Bandgeschichte. Für das erste Halbjahr 2023 planen HYPNOS umfangreichere Konzertaktivitäten in mehreren europäischen Ländern in Begleitung der slowakischen Band DOOMAS.
Premiere des Clips: Mittwoch, 02.11.2022 um 08:00 Uhr
Thank you for your support & have nice weekend, Olaf / Einheit Prod.

HOSTAGE zeigen brandneue Videosingle “AFTERALL”:Viel Seele in den Tiefen des Modern Metalcore!
Menschsein heißt auch, von Kreisläufen bestimmt zu sein. Von denen, die wir starten und vollenden und durch die wir uns im Laufe unseres Lebens definieren lassen; von den Kreisläufen der Natur, die uns auf substanzieller Ebene zu dem machen, was wir sind; und von den Kreisläufen in den Leben der anderen, zu deren Teil wir werden. Eine rein metaphorische Figur? Ja, obgleich eine, an die sich unsere Psyche in verzweifelten Zeiten klammert, wenn ein Kreislauf sich nicht vollenden lässt und wir mutmachenden Trost suchen, um es von diesem in den nächsten zu schaffen. Zahllose Variationen dessen, was uns als der Flug des Phönix bekannt ist, entsprangen einer Masse früher Kulturen und bezeugen gemeinsam: So waren wir Menschen schon von Anbeginn. 
HOSTAGE, die hellen Kometen am Metalcore-Himmel, haben dieser fundamentalen Seelenmechanik nun einen besonderen Raum gegeben: “Afterall” heißt ihre brandneue Videosingle, die als Song das kommende Album “MEMENTO MORI” nicht einfach nur beendet, sondern es als Ganzes aufgreift und Teile davon Revue passieren lässt. Es handelt sich dabei um ein zwar melancholisches aber zugleich erhebendes Stück des gedankenvollen Albums – eines, das in uns die Kraft entfalten kann, weiterzumachen: “Es zahlt sich im Leben aus, zu kämpfen und an der Hoffnung auf bessere Zeiten festzuhalten", sagt HOSTAGE-Sänger Noah. “Denn schlechte Episoden finden irgendwann ihr Ende und die Persönlichkeit geht als eine viel stärkere aus jeder dieser Phasen heraus. Der Song unterstreicht lediglich, was unbemerkt bereits greifbar ist.”
“Afterall” handelt jedoch nicht nur vom Finden des troststiftenden Abschlusses und vom Neubeginn. Seine Rolle am Ende des Debütalbums einer jungen Band, in der er vorangegangene Stücke offen zitiert oder referenziert, macht den Song selbst zu einer Art Abschluss: dem von der Schaffensphase inmitten einer Zeit, die unsere Jüngsten hinter Türen und Fenster zwang ohne einen Ausblick zu bieten außer dem auf sich selbst. Diese Jungs hier sind aus dem Stöbern nach Geist und Seele jedenfalls gestärkt hervorgegangen.
Link zum Video auf YouTube: https://youtu.be/719OWtaqmxI
Hier und da muss eine Geschichte also enden, damit eine neue beginnen kann. Und ob es nun eine gute Geschichte im Buch von jemandes Leben ist, die dem weicht, was auch immer folgen mag, oder eine traurige, um deren Ende viel gebeten und gebetet wurde: Immer lässt sich zumindest auch ein kleiner Trost dabei finden – wenn es uns nur nicht manchmal so verflucht schwer fiele, danach Ausschau zu halten. HOSTAGEs “Afterall” kann Suchenden helfen: Als belebender Sog reißt der Song mit und feiert dabei sowohl das Verstehen als auch das Abschließen.
“Afterall” ist ab sofort auf allen Plattformen erhältlich, HOSTAGE’s neues Album “MEMENTO MORI” erscheint schon am Freitag, 28. Oktober, weltweit via ADA/Warner Music Central Europe.

Afterall
HOSTAGE und ihr kommendes Album “MEMENTO MORI”  . Punktlandung jenseits der Startlinie.
Stell dir vor, du bist Anfang 20, spielst schon ein paar Jahre in einer Band und landest plötzlich einen Überraschungshit. Natürlich willst du jetzt richtig Gas geben und auf den Bühnen der Welt voll durchstarten. Und dann hält plötzlich die Welt an. „Das war natürlich richtig scheiße“, grinst Noah Müller, Sänger der Aachener Modern-Metalcore-Band HOSTAGE, erfrischend offen. „Aber: So hatten wir die Chance, uns in aller Ruhe um unser erstes Album ‘MEMENTO MORI’ zu kümmern.” Doch der Reihe nach.
Mit ihrem Chainsmokers-Cover „Don’t Let Me Down“ landeten die Jungs von HOSTAGE mitten im Hochlauf der Pandemie einen veritablen Hit, der ohne gekaufte Klicks oder Marketingkampagnen allein auf Spotify weit über eine Million Streams in kürzester Zeit erzielte. Und da das mit den Livegigs in dieser Zeit so eine Sache war, machten Noah, Drummer Marvin Ruddies und die Gitarristen David Fuß und Nico Ruddies das Beste aus der Situation: Sie  schrieben Songs für ein sehr wuchtiges Debütalbum und unterhielten eine rasant wachsende Zahl sozial isolierter Fans mit einer Single nach der anderen. Diese vertraute man Timo Bonner und Megablaster Recordings an, wo schon „Don’t Let Me Down“ in Form gegossen wurde. Niemals das Gewinnerteam ändern, oder wie war das? „Auch“, lacht Noah. „Es war seinerzeit eine völlig neue Erfahrung, externe Meinungen – wie die von Timo – und dann auch Kompromisse zulassen zu können. Aber da Timo selber Vollblutmusiker ist, empfanden wir die Kommunikation mit ihm als sehr offen und kreativ. Auch diesmal hatten wir vom Start weg die perfekte Chemie mit ihm!“
“MEMENTO MORI” mag ein Debüt sein, trotzdem kann man klar den Fortschritt hören, den HOSTAGE seit ihren ersten Singles gemacht haben. Es bietet modernen Metalcore, der sich nicht bloß an den üblichen Versatzstücken bedient, sondern Ungewohntes wagt – und genau deswegen so frisch und aufregend klingt wie schon lange kein Genre-Vertreter mehr. Titel wie „The Swarm“, der als Single auf Spotifys “All New Metal”-Playlist große Beliebtheit erfuhr, „Break The Cycle“ oder „Vanitas“ gehen genauso nach vorne wie die später aufgenommenen „Game Over“ oder „Rebellion“ und machen weder auf musikalischer noch emotionaler Ebene Kompromisse. Ob eleganter Industrial Pop, offene Wertschätzung des Post Hardcore oder gekonnt inszenierte Breakdowns – HOSTAGE zeigen sich als Metalcore-Verrückte jung, dynamisch und offen neugierig, ohne sich dabei stilistisch zu zerfasern oder gar die Konsistenz im eigenen Sound zu opfern. Acht Stücke vom Album wurden bereits als Singles veröffentlicht, wodurch die junge Independentband während der Corona-Zeit ihr wachsendes digitales Publikum am Schaffensprozess teilhaben ließ. Ganze 15 Songs jedoch umfasst das fertige Album, für dessen weltweiten Vertrieb ADA/Warner Music Central Europe sorgt.
Der Titel verweist auf den reflektierten lyrischen Inhalt. MEMENTO MORI – „Sei dir der Sterblichkeit bewusst“, frohlocken die Lateiner. „Wir wollten damit zum Ausdruck bringen, dass alles irgendwann ein Ende hat“, zeigt sich Noah nachdenklich. „Nichts bleibt für immer, weder das Gute, noch das Schlechte.”
Insgesamt drei Kollaborationen krönen “MEMENTO MORI''. Auf „Game Over“ sind mit Christoph Wieczorek (Annisokay) und auf „M.U.T.O.“ mit Marius Wedler von Alleviate jeweils zeitgenössische Kollegen vertreten; das lässt sich nachvollziehen. Aber dass es HOSTAGE geschafft haben, für die Neueinspielung von „Rebellion“ die H-Blockx-Doppelspitze Dave Gappa und Henning Wehland zu verpflichten, lässt aufhorchen. „Ey, scheiß auf das Szenedenken“, sagt Noah. „Unsere Eltern haben uns diese Musik mit in die Wiege gelegt, wir sind totale Fans, und dass wir beide vor das Mikro gekriegt haben, war der Wahnsinn.”
Doch noch wichtiger als Gastauftritte ist das Statement, das HOSTAGE mit dem am 28.10.2022 erscheinenden “MEMENTO MORI” abliefern. Denn dieses Album erhöht den Maßstab, an dem sich künftige Debütanten des Modern Metalcore messen lassen müssen,  und das nicht bloß national. Eine weitere junge Generation hat sich auf ihre metallische Lebensreise begeben – und erfreut sich großer Publikumsunterstützung, wie die frischgebackenen Aachener Gewinner des Impericon Contest bei ihrer Show auf dem 2022er Vainstream Rockfest erfahren konnten..

WHISKEY RITUAL – “KINGS”
29.10.2022 News WHISKEY RITUALGenre: Black 'n' Roll
Label: Folter Records
Vertrieb: Alive
VÖ: 09.12.2022
Die Black Metal Ultras sind zurück! 
WHISKEY RITUAL melden sich nach drei Jahren und unzähligen Shows voller Zerstörungen, Whiskey und brutalen Erinnerungen mit ihrem fünften Album wieder. Es stellt eine Zäsur dar. Denn die Italiener sind anders an ihr neuestes Werk gegangen als in der Vergangenheit und herausgekommen ist „Kings“. Ein Album voller Grausamkeit und Dekadenz – gleichzeitig aber natürlich immer noch voller Punk: Ein respektloser Mittelfinger in die heutige Gesellschaft. Es hat sich eine Spur mehr Dramatik eingeschlichen, die aber nötig ist, um WHISKEY RITUAL im Jahre 2022 wieder zu spiegeln. Denn „Kings“ repräsentiert zu 100 % wofür die Band steht – eine Hommage an die alten Legenden, die in der Szene waren und jene, die sie mit knirschenden Zähnen und der richtigen Einstellung noch heute tragen. Ein brutaler Mittelfinger, der auch live dafür sorgen wird, dass das Publikum auf die Bühne springt, um gemeinsam mit WHISKEY RITUAL dem Black Metal Punk zu huldigen. 
 Die Scheibe wurde in Schweden im Necromorbus Studio von Tore Stjerna gemischt, gemastert und in ein passendes Klanggewand gehüllt. Ein dreckiger, eingängiger Bastard, der einmal mehr zeigt, woher WHSIKEY RITUAL kommen und wo sie hinwollen: Von den Straßen, in die Stadien und dann auf den Thron.

ENSLAVED veröffentlichen ihr legendäres frühes Demo "YGGDRASILL" aus dem Jahr 1992 als vollständig remasterte Neuauflage am 2. Dezember!
"Es spricht viel für eine Band, die sich im Laufe der Zeit weiterentwickelt und wächst, die neue Elemente einbringt und so die Grenzen ihrer Ursprünge überwindet. Aber es spricht auch viel dafür, die Messer zu ziehen und direkt an die Gurgel zu gehen. Und obwohl Enslaved in Metal-Kreisen für Platten wie Isa, Ruun und RIITIIR bekannt geworden sind, lässt sich die Kraft des frühen Schaffens der Band nicht leugnen. Frost und Vikingligr Veldi sind beide wichtige Beiträge zum Kanon des Black Metal der zweiten Welle, aber das Urwerk einer jeden Band hat etwas einzigartig Faszinierendes an sich, und Yggdrasill von 1992 bildet da keine Ausnahme." - Metal Injection
Roh, ungezähmt, wütend und doch raffiniert - "Yggdrasill" ist zweifellos ein wesentlicher Eckpfeiler der norwegischen Black Metal-Szene. Trotz des jungen Alters der Bandmitglieder, die zum Zeitpunkt der Aufnahmen noch im Teenageralter waren, zeigt "Yggdrasill" bereits Enslaveds Fähigkeit, komplexe, kraftvolle und eindrucksvolle Kompositionen zu schreiben, da sie zu den ersten gehörten, die die nordische Mythologie und die Bilderwelt der Wikinger nutzten, um ihr nordisches Erbe zu vermitteln.
29.10.2022 News EnslavedIvar Bjørnson kommentiert:
 "Für eine Band, die scheinbar von den Konzepten der Wurzeln und dem, was ihnen entspringt, besessen ist - und das sind wir, ja - ist "Yggdrasill" die explodierende Saat, das wuchernde Alpha und das Alles, aus dem alles, was wir heute tun und nicht tun, entspringt. Es ist eine Veröffentlichung, auf die ich unheimlich stolz bin und für die ich unendlich viel Zärtlichkeit empfinde. Die jugendliche, reine Leidenschaft für die Musik, die Missachtung jeglicher vermeintlicher Regeln und Dogmen - ich versuche, alles, was wir bis heute tun, davon inspirieren zu lassen, so unterschiedlich wir heute auch klingen mögen oder nicht. Dies nun endlich in angemessener Form über By Norse Music zu veröffentlichen, dem Label, das ich mit meinen besten Freunden betreibe - das ist wirklich ein großer Meilenstein für mich."
Die von Tony Lindgren in den Fascination Street Studios komplett neu gemasterte Neuauflage von "Yggdrasill" auf By Norse Music (Ivar Bjørnsons eigenem Imprint) wird als sehr limitierte A-Side/B-Side-Effekt 12" Vinyl-Edition mit 300 handnummerierten Exemplaren und CD-Digipack mit 12-seitigem Booklet erhältlich sein. Auf allen Formaten sind alle fünf Songs des Demos plus der Bonus Track "Enslaved" enthalten!

French Black Metal Duo DEPRESSIVE WITCHES signed with Wormholedeath a deal for their album "DISTANT KINGDOMS", due for release on November 25th, 2022.

Statement for signing: « We are proud to announce the release of our new album « distant kingdoms » on the Italian record label Wormholedeath, a subdivision of Aural music »
The band speaking of the album, stated: “We are excited to reveal this new album, which is the perfect mix of our main influences: black’n’roll, heavy metal, and classic rock. Music is perfectly serving the album theme, which is focused on epicness, battles, and exploration of new worlds, as we did for songwriting. “Distant Kingdoms” is a black metal album with so many influences, really rare in this genre. We kept our punky sound and mixed it with folk melodies, always with this “in your face” style, this is why fans loved the first album. We see being a duo band as an intense and intimate way to play music, and not a reduction of sound diversity, so we’re not afraid to mix every sound we love.”
Even just being two musicians on stage, they leave nothing behind and can fill out the space with their
massive sound and dynamic energy.
Black Metal band Depressive Witches was formed in 2018 in Picardy, France by brothers Sick Bab (Baptiste Robert) on vocals and guitar, and Torvuus (Paul Robert) on guitars and drums. Linked by both blood and a passion for black and extreme metal, creating music together was only natural.
In 2021, they released their debut album “Bad Flask”, which leaned heavily into the traditional black metal influences of the duo and contained lyrical themes revolving around witchcraft, curses, and epic fights. The release was recorded by Jonas Sanders & Ivan Houben, and mixed/mastered by Jonas Sanders at Blackout Studio, in Brussels.
2022 witnesses a new album from the band "Distant Kingdoms" again recorded, mixed, and mastered by Jonas Sänders. In contrast to the first album, it pays homage to its rock influences and contains more solos and clean vocals. An anomaly in the black metal scene, it is a mix of black metal, punk, heavy metal, joyful & darkened riffs, like black’n’roll but more festive and epic. Lyrically it looks into adventures, magic battles/war, and high fantasy which take inspiration from RPG video games with medieval themes, nature, and black magic.

Formed in 2018 by Nick Sagias on bass and vocals (Tribe of Pazuzu, Soulstorm, Overthrow, ex-Pestilence) and his brother John Sagias on drums (Soulstorm, Abyss) along with guitarists Ethan Bolduc (Jaww, Abyss), and Rick Kowalski (Soulstorm, Bound By Defiance), Toronto's NIHILIST DEATH CULT will be unleashing their debut album entitled "DEATH TO ALL TYRANTS" this coming December.

29.10.2022 News NIHILIST DEATH CULTThe album features nine quick strikes to the jugular of hardcore death punk recorded and mixed by Scott Middleton (ex-Cancer Bats). It's short and sweet with a running time of just under 15 minutes, but it delivers a full dose of whiplash and speedy licks.
Earlier this summer, the band unveiled the album's title track, a song about the underdog stepping up to the tyrant and winning.
"Scott was excellent to work with and helped us a lot with hearing things we didn’t hear before, that’s what a good producer does and it was a great experience working with him. After we heard the final mixes, there was the daunting task of picking the first track we would use for the lyric video and be the first thing anyone heard of us as a "new" band. We eventually settled on 'Death To All Tyrants' because it felt like it set the tone for both the sound and lyrical message we were trying to get across with NDC. We are not trying to be political or force our opinions, but we still feel we are responsible for some substance in our lyrics and I feel the messages in the lyrics are universal ideas that affect all of us in many types of situations and cultures." adds Nick Sagias.
The title track and its lyric video can be viewed and heard at https://youtu.be/PJR04jl5roI
Nihilist Death Cult was born after the ending of Toronto underground legends Soulstorm, of which Nick Sagias was a founding member.
"I felt it in my heart that I needed to get back to the roots, the fast styles I grew up on, punk, thrash, death metal after I ended Soulstorm in 2016, so I started writing in the style of death metal for what I was going to eventually call my other band Tribe of Pazuzu. During the writing phase in 2017/2018, I came up with the name Nihilist Death Cult first for this other new death metal project, after letting that sit for a month or two I realized it was a more punk-sounding name and I already had a handful of riffs in the hardcore punk style that I ended up arranging and being the first 5 songs for NDC. I sent them to my brother John and he liked it right away and was down to make it happen, which was awesome because I always loved his dbeat style and feel of drumming."
Relentless savage hardcore death punk grind, Nihilist Death Cult should appeal to most fans of band members' previous and current endeavours, whether it be Jaww, Abyss, Overthrow, Soulstorm, Tribe of Pazuzu (ft. Flo Mounier (drums -Cryptopsy), John McEntee - guitar, Incantation - first two EPs). "Death To All Tyrants" is meant to bring back the anger, the fire, and the brooding fast music meant to be in punk and metal.
"This album is about how the corporate sponsored news media feeds you the stories and ideas they are paid to push… it’s about the victims standing up to the tyrants… it’s about choosing your own path and not blindly following norms if they don’t suit you." says Nick Sagias.
Live, fans can expect seasoned veterans to go up on stage and put on a show to match the energy of their extreme music that's ferocious and devastating.
Recommended for fans of Poison Idea, early DRI, early Bad Brains, Nails, Terrorizer and CroMags, Nihilist Death Cult's album "Death To All Tyrants" is due out on December 2, 2022.

Finnish death metal band Devenial Verdict premiered another mesmerizing albeit powerful song from their upcoming album. it has been premiered by Toilet ov Hell at https://toiletovhell.com/track-premiere-devenial-verdict-sun-hammer/

People seem to have taken a liking to it, as is evident from the reviews that it has received. It's a refreshing album from a band that's trying to do its own thing, which is extremely rare these days. 
"While Devenial Verdict could be considered progressive death metal, I quite like the descriptor of “atmospheric death metal,” because atmosphere is what Ash Blind delivers in spades"

For fans of - Ulcerate, Aeviterne, Klexos, Morbid Angel, Mithras, Blut Aus Nord
Finnish death metal band Devenial Verdict bring a fresh approach to the style, particularly with their dissonant leanings. Where most such bands sound jarring and convoluted, Devenial Verdict are unusually expansive and atmospheric, and even allow for plaintive emotions to linger on. Intense parts accentuated by singularly powerful vocals are contrasted against the deeply immersive atmosphere where the emotive melodies shimmer starkly. It’s this alternating of seemingly conflicting yet familiar emotions that breaks down the listener and compels him to give in to the sheer evocative appeal of the music which only tightens its grip as the album unfolds. Each song adds a different shade, nuance, character to the momentum generated and compels him to bear witness to this phenomenon. Repeated exposure to it doesn’t diminish its impact nor its appeal, which only attests to the band’s commendable songwriting skills that keep the music varied enough to be engrossing but also cohesive enough to not digress. Albums like these don’t come very often and when they do, they change the scope of the style.

SYSTEMHOUSE33 – “SALVATION “

Label: Self-Released

Line-up:
Samron Jude
Gilroy Fernandes
Atish Thomas
Mayank Sharma
Indian metal band SYSTEMHOUSE33 have released the official music video for “SALVATION”, which is the title track of their fourth full-length studio album released earlier in 2022.
The music video showcases frontman Samron Jude in a storyline where he comes face-to-face with a tough choice to deal with a past trauma that can change the course of his future.
SYSTEMHOUSE33 founding member and vocalist Samron Jude said, “When we wrote Salvation, it was a time of great uncertainty and hopelessness, we wanted to convey the message in a video where life is about “choices” you make dependant on the situations you’re faced with and the consequences of those actions.’
The video was shot in the UK and India and the track is produced by Samron Jude and mixed & mastered by Akash Sawant.
SystemHouse33 is currently on a massive European tour supporting Ektomorf and as the band is on the road to 20 years of existence, the tour lineup features the members who’ve worked on all the albums.
Jude added, “ We’re having a blast on this tour, it’s so good to have Gilroy (guitars), Atish (bass), Mayank (drums) and Akash (audio engineer) on this tour. We have all worked together on the SystemHouse33 albums over the years and now being on tour together, it has been great and we’ve been having a tremendous response.”
The band was among the first bands to tour Europe following the lifting of restrictions in March this year as they supported Nervosa and Burning Witches on the “Double the Metal 2022” tour.

Unleashing art from romance and rage.
A conglomerate of 4 musician individuals did not let the difficult time in 2020 get them down and together they celebrate a new band, filling it with a mixture of doom, gothic + metal and other related styles with depth and music.
The start as a band was in November 2020, the thought and the feeling of emotionally enduring this difficult time with the drive was the master key to starting as LEACHED. Working out ideas together to counter the sadness and frustration during the pandemic was the goal. All the various hopes are united here to find each other mentally and musically.
The musicians involved are all from the Cologne area and are now starting with their first album “FREE FALL INTO OUR DOOM”, which will be available digitally on all major platforms from 20.10.2022 and will be officially released on 21.10.2022 as a CD on a cult event “BAUHAUS LIVE TROISDORF” with an exciting and in-depth album release show.
In these times are not only the already familiar always known demons on the road! No, more flexible ... more poisonous ..., more potent and above all more aggressive than ever, they are even more corrosive and attach themselves to the human spirit. They build their nests in our weak spirits and, with their resistance, incubate new species of a malignant construction that predominantly serves as prey for the soul. The soul, the inner reality of our life, is decomposed from within. From the human being to the will-less humanoid, who have one thing as a goal: The end of spiritual freedom.
The musicians around Leached perform with their first long-player “FREE FALL INTO OUR DOOM” a musical and mental liberation blow! The crushing burden of negative moods, also in the environment, have been processed. As a consequence of their own countermeasure Leached play a wide range of music, from romantic gothic synth to furious doom metal. This breadth contains just as much expression and depth.

Spirit Coffin Publishing is proud to the present "THE WAVES HAVE TEETH", the debut album by Swedish progressive death metal act FLOATING, on CD and MC format. The CD version will be released on November 11th, while the tape version will follow on December 16th.

FLOATING was founded in 2021 by Arvid Sjödin and Andreas Hörmark, two Uppsala-based musicians who'd met in their formative years as members of death metal band Morbid Illusion. When their previous group called it quits, the two continued making music together in a variety of different constellations, venturing outside of heavy music with krautrock/synth rock project Träskfeber and their own synthpop/post-punk explorations on the side. As the urge to create to darker, heavier music returned FLOATING was birthed to explore the possibilities of merging deformed and dissonant death metal the old-school way with their newly bolstered post-punk sensibilities. The result was a band that in many ways is quite traditional, but also incorporates sounds and influences from completely different places outside of the metal world. Expect an entirely different sort of progressive metal, inspired to push boundaries with great admiration for the spirit of bands like Morbus Chron, Imperial Triumphant, Portal and Gold Spire.
29.10.2022 News FLOATING "The Waves Have Teeth" was essentially written in the order of appearance, a revelation which arrived one after another, an organic process for Sjödin and Hörmark. A dark, vintage feel was insisted upon, aiming for a sound in touch with older death metal (Cannibal Corpse, Autopsy, Incantation) while still speaking to the same senses as the post-punk and goth rock bands that they love (The Cure, The Chameleons, Joy Division). This resulted in a record affected by the Swedish autumn, the rain, and the cold. During that time they drew inspiration from films such as Through a Glass Darkly, Persona and The Lighthouse creating the grim and barren themes, tone and aesthetic which shaped "The Waves Have Teeth" with those works fresh in mind. Naturally the music takes the listener to a place of loneliness, of isolation and dread, disgust and insanity. Of death in the archipelago, of islets drowned in excrements of cormorants. Of lighthouse keepers lost in the dark, breathing nothing but salt, hearing nothing but the waves slowly chewing their way up the cliffs.
The album was recorded in Uppsala at Sjödin and Hörmark's homes and also in Studio Siborator, the same studio where close friends Gold Spire recently wrote and recorded their debut album.

Italian melodic death metallers CULTØ are proud to premiere their debut album "OF THE SUN" in its entirety at No Clean Singing. Stream it here https://www.nocleansinging.com/2022/10/24/an-ncs-album-premiere-and-a-review-culto-of-the-sun/
The album is out October 27th on CD, LP, and digital formats via Time To Kill Records.
CULTØ was born from an idea of mastermind Dave, who, in a very short time span, managed to put together a line-up made up of well-known musicians from the Lombardy underground scene (Ghostheart Nebula, Vide, Perfidious, etc.) and record an album of nine songs.
The style of "Of The Sun" comes straight from the Gothenburg sound of the 90s (In Flames, Dark Tranquility, etc.) opening on to more aggressive musical tones. The album is not only a personal interpretation of this music style, but revolves around a message on the awakening of generative consciousness and on the power of artistic expression.
The concept of the lyrics is focused on the awareness of the artist and his creative abilities, through the metaphor of a star that, following a flare, becomes a creator and destroyer god in search of himself and his kind.
CULTØ combine a number of genres and influences, ranging from In Flames to Bloodbath and Septicflesh, filtered through a prism of metallic extremity. The result is fierce melodic death metal, mixing the best of old and new school into their own sound.
29.10.2022 News CULTØTracklist:
1. Flare
2. Experiment 1
3. Excrete

Australian funeral doom metal meets classical music act ESTRANGEMENT is pleased to announce their upcoming new album "DISFIGUREMENTALITY", due out November 25th 2022 via Aesthetic Death.

For fans of: Esoteric, My Dying Bride, Dissection, Skepticism, (early) Samael
The single "The Light Unshown" is now streaming at https://estrangement.bandcamp.com/album/disfigurementality
Funereal-Flamenca-Nuclear-Jazz-Fusion-End-of-World Music - an eclectic doom metal masterpiece.
Aesthetic Death label manager Stu Gregg states:
"JS is not only a man of infinite wisdom and creativity – but a man of his word. Following the split (with Begrabnis, Weird Truth, 2016) he said he had an album brewing inside, with some great ideas. Following the excellent work on display in ESTRANGEMENT’s demo (2014) and split, it was certainly something that grabbed my interest.
We agreed to work on this together, spat on our palms and shook hands – an oath not to be broken. Years later that agreement comes to fruition.
'Disfigurementality' has been a highly anticipated release within the extreme doom scene – with many fans of the genre recognising the potential of this unique band.
The album brings together and melds various styles, with authentic traces of classical music, black metal, jazz fusion and even flamenco – however, at its core, 'Disfigurementality' remains a piece of extreme doom excellence.
ESTRANGEMENT have managed to solidify and expand upon the creativity of previous works, both through composition but also musically through the use of of flute, violin and double bass through the album. The string arrangements range from the soaring and sublime, to the excruciatingly harsh.
Another notable feature of the album is the wide range of vocals – from the extreme doom growls that JS has as a trademark – yet notably the use of howling violent screams, to throat singing, to liturgical chant, all forging different emotions throughout the album.
'Disfigurementality' has the melancholic beauty of My Dying Bride, it has the obscure darkness of Unholy – but it has much more to explore. It is an album of beauty, beguilement and darkness. It will lead you on a journey filled with abrupt changes, seductive tangents and crushing heaviness. It demands the attention that should be given to any great album – go with its unique flow and be richly rewarded.
Not only have ESTRANGEMENT created a fantastic full length debut album – they have created an album that will establish them as leaders in the extreme doom genre, and beyond".

Label: Self-released
Release Date: 29-11-2022
Format: Digital
Genre:  Industrial Metal
Country: Uk
Released in Winter 2022 Messages From the Deep sees Binary Order deliver ten tracks of brutal industrial metal, sprawling cinematic electronics and atmospheric laced ambiance. From the insanity of Violence, through to the pounding of Parasite and the overwhelming dread of My Own Mortality. Messages From the Deep is a collection of songs drenched in anxiety, isolation and anger. Birthed from a fear of the future while existing in a present that feels foreign and cold.
Heavily inspired both by the likes of cyberpunk and sci-fi (such as Dune, Akira, Blade Runner, Total Recall, Deus Ex, Judge Dredd etc) in its presentation, themes and aesthetic. Messages From the Deep is also a look at both the prevalent social and political unrest in modern society and the warning signs we are continuing to ignore. As we fall further down into this hell of own making, becoming ever more disconnected from ourselves and each other, we succumb to the unrelenting fear that mankind is too far along to stop these horrors that we have set in motion.

9 DEAD – “9 DEAD”
29.10.2022 News 9 DeadLabel: Comatose Music
Release date: November 4th 2022
Genre: Brutal Death Metal
For fans of: Ingested | Gutrectomy | Insect Inside | Stillbirth
Beneath a blackened moon their decaying flesh tears itself from the clinging embrace of the cold earth. Their bitter moans fill the silence of the night, a futile protest against this violation of their rest. With empty eyes they stare at each other; at the dead, grey skin and putrefying meat sloughing from their tired bones, at the faint glow that surrounds them from the luminescent mould that quietly consumes them. Then, with another chorus of despairing lamentations torn from the bottom of their rotting hearts, they begin to walk – a shuffling, stumbling march into darkness. They have been summoned once again and wickedness awaits...
With a sound wrenched from the depths of nightmares and songs sculpted from inexplicable horror, New Jersey’s 9 Dead present their colossal self titled debut album. Oppressively heavy riffs writhe upon an altar of incredible drumming that shifts through gears and tempos with nonchalant ease, a constant pulse of overwhelming power. A deranged voice roars, howls, screams and spits venom as a bass presence of unfathomable depth threatens to drag you down into a bottomless mire of liquid terror. 9 Dead is a shocking, unforgettable hell ride through sonic extremity, but one with a rich palette of dynamics, mood and atmosphere. The threatening bass break in ‘Wake’, the unnerving tranquillity of ‘Andromeda’, the haunting conclusion of ‘Desecrate’...all these elements weave their way into this devastating assault on the senses making for an utterly compelling listen. 9 Dead challenge your strength, your endurance, your ability to cope with crushing extremity, but they also spin tales and craft songs that will stay with you after the broken bones have fused and the bruises faded.
9 Dead announced their alliance with the kings of death, Comatose Music, back in 2021 and now the time has finally come for the world to hear just why Comatose were so keen to lure this destructive unit into their ranks. The album, 9 Dead, will be unleashed on November 4th in an explosion of brutal death metal might and when the smoke clears no one will be left standing. Beware – the dead are coming for you!

GORGATRON has finalized all dates for its upcoming tour of the U.S. and Mexico. The tour launches October 27 in Fargo, ND!
GORGATRON will release the Agony Reborn EP November 4 on digital and cassette formats via Blood Blast Distribution. The cassette version is limited to 100 copies and also includes four exclusive live tracks on Side B.
The EP, which is the final release of the Blood Blast Distribution deal, consists of three original studio recordings and a cover of Sepultura's "Dead Embryonic Cells." GORGATRON is currently seeking a new label for release of the band's recently recorded full-length album. Interested parties should contact Cameron.Gorgatron@gmail.com.
GORGATRON's sound is based on a “love of the riff” approach to writing and rooted in the old-school stylings of Death Metal and Thrash, one that comes across loud and clear on Agony Reborn. The EP is a product of what the band has dubbed the “Covid Sessions." As further explained by bassist Cameron Dewald: "We were on track to do a bunch of touring etc to support our last album Pathogenic Automation (2020) but clearly and for obvious reasons that didn’t happen… So instead we stayed as busy as we could in 2020 and 2021, played a few shows and hashed out some new tunes. The cover for 'Dead Embyronic Cells' was originally for Metal Injections Slay At Home series, but we ended up holding onto it and found a suitable home for it on this EP."

DESECRATE THE FAITH – “ III “
29.10.2022 News Desecrate The FaithLabel: Comatose Music
Release date: November 18th 2022
Genre: Brutal Death Metal
For fans of: Immolation | Cannibal Corpse | Beheaded | Gorgasm
Row upon row they sit, bound and gagged, their hands nailed to the pews. Their mouths may be silenced but their eyes still scream as they stare in wide-eyed horror at their priest’s body, broken upon the desecrated altar with limbs splayed in unnatural confusion, surrounded by his entrails – a mound of glistening serpents. As the sunlight blazes through the stained glass, painting the cold stone pillars in brilliant blues and reds, the scents of gasoline, offal, tears and terror mingle in the air. I light the match and every eye watches its slow motion tumble to the floor...and then the world ignites and hell consumes us all.
An insurmountable force of opposition and defiance, Desecrate The Faith have unveiled their third album, their third assault upon repressive authority and spirit crushing dogma. Entitled simply III, this collection of supreme brutality and terrifying power revels in wanton destruction. Songs like ‘Vile Of Legion’ unleash warheads of mountainous riffs that rage through scalding rains of skin flaying solos and arcane melodies. The drumming of Mike Caputo (ex-Internal Bleeding, ex-Rings Of Saturn) is relentless, blow after bone-breaking blow driving the album onwards through the demon possessed ‘The Dead Testament’ into the vortex of chaos and madness that is ‘Omnes Ardeat’. With the obscene vocals of John Hull (Gorgasm) invoking devils in a torrent of blasphemy, III takes on an hypnotic life of its own that draws you down into its glorious tumult of world eating, unfettered ferocity. Combining staggering song craft, stellar musicianship, unfathomable heaviness and frightening velocity Desecrate The Faith have created a true masterpiece of brutal death metal.
With III, Desecrate The Faith have gone above and beyond not only their own previous output – the undeniably excellent Disfigured Arrangement (2014) and Unholy Infestation (2017) – but the majority of albums in the brutal death metal genre. The scope, the vision, the savagery and intent are second to none. When Comatose Music open the gates for this titanic record on November 18th the foundations of death metal will shake.

Sentient Ruin is proud to announce that Dutch experimental raw death metal absurdity CRYPTAE are about to return with their second full-length deformity, "CAPSULE", their most aberrant, delirious and labyrinthine (master)piece of anti-music yet.

To coincide with the announcement the opening track “Pearl” has been revealed by underground metal blog Last Rites, who in introducing the mind-bending track explained that with this song “the band are dead-set on turning death metal inside out, seeing just how creative they can get in sculpting within the primal, primitive framework they set for themselves.”. You can checkout the track and read their in-depth detailed introduction to the album here https://yourlastrites.com/2022/10/18/track-premiere-cryptae-capsule/
29.10.2022 News CRYPTAEConceived through a deconstructed and radicalized approach of "less is more", this new chapter of conceptualized insanity sees the deranged duo of drummer/vocalist Rene Aquarius and guitarist/bassist Kees Peerdeman starve and disassemble death metal from within, as they explore a cryptic concept revolving around marine life and its abysses teeming with absurd and marvelous life forms. The staple high contrast minimalist/maximalist experimental approach of Cryptae in deteriorating the familiar fabric of death metal and finding new and insane ways to dismount and reassemble the genre through delirious aural experiments, this time reaches truly extraordinary and implausible new dimensions of the absurd. Entire strings of death metal's DNA are removed and replaced with components from other genres in a deranged and playful act of stylistic disfiguration, yielding deformities unending and essentially crippling the genre into an incomprehensible, skeletal mutation. A violently malformed and enigmatic abstraction arises from this delusion, through the forced abortion and abolition of all musical canons and decency, triggering a marvelous rebirth through conceptual annihilation and spasmodic nonconformity which is set to challenge and destabilize our perception of extreme metal at the deepest levels. A glitched and distorted sonic fractal of demented improvisation drives Cryptae's crippled and deconstructed raw death metal experiment, as primitive raw (post)-punk, repetitive and bludgeoning industrial, schizoid no-wave, and jazz-derived free-form backward moving meters and compositional oddities all do their part in completing a musical jigsaw of rare genius and hideous inventiveness.
"Capsule" is slated for release on CD, MC, and digital on November 18 2022, and pre-orders are available now via all our channels, while a vinyl edition will arrive later in 2023.
Sincerely, Sentient Ruin

Colombian extreme metal act AIRE COMO PLOMO stream new video "ERASE THE ONE"

22.10.2022 News AIRE COMO PLOMOAIRE COMO PLOMO (translates to AIR LIKE GUNFIRE) also known as A.C.P is a Colombian extreme music group that combines Death grind, Thrash Metal and Hardcore Punk with elements of Avant-garde art and Latin-American horror and folklore. The name is commonly referred to as a metaphor for a forced and daily inhale of violence and savagery.
Inspired by the work of León Ferrari and the meaningless story behind the Colombian ideological warfare and injustice system , AIRE COMO PLOMO defies all idolatry and belief with an aggressive sonic hammer called “Erase the One”.
“Erase the One” is a call to rise up against fear, the establishment and idols fueled by the horrors of armed conflict.

ERASE THE ONE
Presented in Tarantinoesque anti-political propaganda aesthetics, the clip is a fast-paced montage of the band as street level and rebellious apes, performing aggressively against a collage of visuals inspired by the work of León Ferrari, the Colombian injustice system and a senseless history of ideological warfare. In this homage to grindhouse, graphic design and video art, A.C.P pulverizes all idolatry and belief with an aggressive sonic hammer called “Erase the One”.

Soundwise, A.C.P focuses on the rawness of their extreme metal and culture shock hybrid: a cinematic chain gang chant evocates times of repression and abuse as we dive headfirst into a savage Hardcore Punk, Black Metal and Grindcore mutant that nails the bands current musical direction with blunt determination.
“Erase the One” is a thought-provoking, transgressive congregation to rise up against fear, the establishment and idols fueled by the horrors of armed conflict.

22.10.2022 News SICKRECYSwedish grindcore act Sickrecy, short for sick-secrecy, meaning that we as people under our rulers are on a need-to-know basis and we clearly don’t need to know anything but to obey and pay, was formed in late 2019/early 2020 by Martin Eriksson who soon teamed up with Marcus Dahl and Adde Mitroulis to make the foundation of Sickrecy. Adde Mitroulis, well known for bands such as Birdflesh and General Surgery is no stranger in this line of duty, With numerous albums on his conscience and three releases in 2021, he clearly knows how to handle a microphone and his vocals are significant to the sound of Sickrecy. Marcus Dahl and Martin Eriksson hail from the crust and death act World in Ruins and the blackened industrial death metal band Damned to Downfall, who both put out albums in 2021. You could say that Sickrecy is somewhat of a blend between all of our four bands but the main inspiration comes from the early 90’s underground scene. In July 2021 we released our 6-track EP "First World Anxiety", which is a meltingpot of all the things that we are about. It includes the fast, extreme and the blasts mixed with crust, d-beat and death metal. The lyrics cuts through with social awareness and topics like decreasing free speech, intolerance and the problems with globalization are all being In 2022 we joined forces with SELFMADEGOD rec to release our first full-length album, Salvation through tyranny, on cd. The tape version will once again be released by Bullwhip Records.

International Blackened Deathcore trio FIFTH RING unleash their incredible debut album, MASOCHIST!

22.10.2022 News Fifth RingGenre: Blackened Deathcore
For fans of: Cattle Decapitation | Bog Wraith | Sun Speaker | Katabasis

Within the vast swamplands of the fifth ring the sullen and the wrathful seethe and rage, as is their wont. Some lurk beneath the cold, silt filled waters, breathing in filth and breathing out bile and bitterness, blind to all but hatred and grievance. Some thrash through the sucking mud, flinging themselves upon their fellow sinners – rending and ripping with tooth and nail, screaming in anger and agony, bleeding the black blood of the damned into the torpid waters of their eternal prison. No devils torment these boiling, resentful, turbulent souls; they wound themselves, trap themselves and tear themselves asunder.
If all the rage of all the souls who have poisoned themselves with anger over the centuries of mankind’s dismal tenure on this earth were transformed into sound, then maybe that aeons long scream would possess a fraction of the fire and fury held within the debut album from Fifth Ring. Masochist is phenomenally heavy, a staggeringly fierce outpouring of extremity, a maelstrom where blackened deathcore, progressive death metal and sheer bloody brutality collide and explode! Yet while the firestorm intensity and bludgeoning blows of songs like ‘The Snake’ are fearsome in their power, the breadth and depth of imagination displayed in multifaceted creations like ‘Dust To Dust’ is equally remarkable.  The international trio who make up the beast that is Fifth Ring - Zachary Kepley (Vocals, Bass, Drums) based in Taiwan and Q. Keith Brown Jr. (Drums) and Christopher Williamson (Guitars) based in Atlanta, Georgia, USA - might have started down this path with no higher goals than conjuring up some brutal tunes and seeing just how heavy they could get, but along the way Fifth Ring has grown into something none of them could have fully anticipated. No-one could have foreseen the birth of a monster this colossal, this inspiring and intimidating from such humble beginnings and simple aspirations.
Following on directly from the three track EP Dawn, Masochist is a huge leap forward for Fifth Ring in every department. The individual performances have reached new levels, the song writing is breathtaking in its ambition and the sound captured by Zachary Kepley combines clarity and power with a wicked, raw, serrated edge which keeps things sounding downright dangerous. The multi tasking Kepley has also created the intriguing cover art that adorns Masochist, an image which helps the album take another step away from those who might imagine themselves to be peers or contemporaries. When Masochist becomes available in digital format and as a limited edition CD from October 28th do not hesitate to leap into those swamps of rage – feel your mind forcibly expanded while your bones are remorselessly broken!

DARK ESSENCE RECORDS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM AND SINGLE FROM TOTAL OCCULTIC MECHANICAL BLASPHEMERS T.O.M.B.

 US Total Occultic Mechanical Blasphemers T.O.M.B, are back with their seventh full-length  album which is due to hit the streets on the 2nd December.  Titled "TERROR WINDS", the album is a follow up to 2020's "The Thin Veil", which marked the beginning of the legendary band's collaboration with Norway's Dark Essence Records.
22.10.2022 News T.O.M.B, It is an album imbued with spellbinding symphonic ambience and necromantic noise soundscapes  that sees T.O.M.B return to their graveyard roots of old, raw Black Metal.  And today, Dark Essence Records have released the track "In The Ugly Dark"  from the album, which, according to the band serves as a very apt window into the heart of "Terror Winds" Itself, as they explain:
“In the Ugly Dark” serves as a introduction to the fierce song writing style representative throughout the new six song album. Its scorching guitar sound and barbaric drum beats coincide with the concept of a darkness unknown or experienced within the limitations of human existence.
It is an experience that will transport the listener back to the glory days of extreme dangerous black metal. 
"In the Ugly Dark" can be downloaded or streamed from a number of services at https://link.darkessencerecords.no/TOMB_In_The_Ugly_Dark
As well as on YouTube at https://youtu.be/qqqaCFRzzZM
"Terror Winds" carries with it the authentically dangerous feel of early 90s Black Metal, combined with a powerful wave of ambient keyboards and classic T.O.M.B. noise.  Recorded live at the Ossuary Studios in New York City and mastered by Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studios in Sweden, and with artwork by Nestor Avalos, tracklisting for "Terror Winds" is as follows:
1. Terror Winds
2. In the Ugly Dark
3. Wraiths
4. Hatred to All
5. Frost Tyrants
6. Reincarnation

"Terror Winds" will be available in CD, LP and Digital formats, and is now available to pre-order from:

https://link.darkessencerecords.no/TOMB_Terror_Winds

The history of T.O.M.B. spans over two decades,  since 1998, in fact, when, inspired by bands such as ABRUPTUM, HAVOHEJ, SAMAEL and SUNNO))), musicians No-One, B. Zimimay, Tyler B and Samantha Viola first got together to form the entity that would become T.O.M.B. Together they would astonish fans with a trademark sound that would prove to be be both horrific, and, at the same time, hypnotically spell-binding. 
Dealing with esoteric matters  such as death, paranormal activity and occult practices, T.O.M.B. has used its twenty plus years of experience well,  with the band able to hone its ability to craft a sound that combines Black Metal with elements of  Dark Ambient, Doom, Death, Industrial and Power Electronics. The end result is a unique brand of terrifying black metal noise that has earned T.O.M.B. the reputation as one of the top innovators in the field of modern-day Black Metal.
More information about T.O.M.B can be found on the band's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/totalocculticmechanicalblasphemy/

SENTIENT RUIN
is happy to present you with the three reissues by three amazing bands who've recently tasked the label with reissuing their most recents works in various different formats and presentations:
RIGOROUS INSTITUTION - CAINSMARSH: first worldwide CD edition. The incredible debut album from the Portland, Oregon-based apocalyptic crust punk/metal visionaries finally gets the digital physical treatment for all territories.
These reissues also serve as means to bring back under the spotlight three releases/bands of superb quality you may have missed during their original releases and which we think may deserve another round of attention.
Portland OR dystopian crust punk prophets Rigorous Institution arise with their first full-length album, "Cainsmarsh", an apocalyptic experimental punk/metal monolith risen on the heels of several EPs and demos littered throughout the underground in the past few years which had hinted at, but not yet fully revealed, until now, the breadth and magnitude of the band's visionary and highly philosophical blend of crust and anarcho punk, proto-metal, and ambient-infused spoken word and literary experimentalism. Drawing inspiration from a diverse and transformative plethora of influences such Amebix, Killing Joke, Rudimentary Peni, Dead Can Dance, Antisect, Voivod, Venom, Motorhead and Swans, Rigorous Institution take the listener on a grim ride deep inside the realms of human failure and of societal contradiction, unfolding an apocalyptic dystopian inversion which reveals mankind still chained to its feral and animalistic origins while failed technological and cultural illusions punctuate the inevitable human wasteland, motionless like ancient ruins, lost in a twilight of dissolving history and broken dreams. "Cainsmarsh" brings us back to a russeaunian savage age disfigured by biblical antediluvian anecdotes where mankind's flawed primeval negativity and innate failures drag society and progress back into a primitive dark age of violence, injustice and turmoil, and the band's music orchestrates and soundtracks this atavistic downfall with masterful vision and prophetic anachronism, fusing derailing metal riffs, filthy crust punk primitivism, tense progressive passages, schizoid oracular spoken word and ominous keyboard-laden atmospheres into a dark tale of downfall, sinister presages and unravelling hope.
The album was previously issued earlier in 2022 as a vinyl/digital release via Black Water Records.

APOSTASY - DEATH RETURN: the most underrated thrash metal band/release of the decade? You be the judge, but in the meantime the bludgeoning masterpiece from the legendary Chilean thrash metal legion sees its first ever vinyl pressing from audio remastered for vinyl directly from the source mixes! 
The immense third full-length album in thirty five years from Chile's legendary thrash legion Apostasy, finally reissued for the first time ever with proper vinyl mastering from the source mixes and with a brand new graphic layout. "Death Return" sees the Chilean masters rise to unseen peaks of excellence and destruction as they unleash the most towering and punishing beast in their three-decade-plus career and harness the quintessence of total thrash domination. This is not only the glorious past of speed metal's finest hour reclaiming its darkened throne, but the future of the genre all together. A dark future in which thrash metal reconnects with its evil and nefarious roots to summon complete hell on earth and reignite the black flame first sparked by bands like Slayer, Sodom and Sepultura back in the mid 80s when the genre was still very much a vessel for apocalyptic visions of a world drowned in blood, war, violence and evil. In a perfect and flawless forty-minute assault of war-torn aggression and shellshocking intensity, Apostasy deliver an absolute payload of death and terror, discharged at breakneck speed and weaponized into form by an implacable firestorm of blackened riffs, ominous atmospheres, razowrire leads and malefic screams ripping from he bowels of hell. All hail Chile's legendary cult of death!
The "Death Return" vinyl reissue is officially out now via Sentient Ruin for the Americas and Polish label Fallen Temple for Europe.

HATE PROPAGANDA - WORLD WAR 666: bestial war metal without blast beats? Not only possible but also staggering in the results. The Portuguese war criminals fuse war torn black/death metal with the primitivism of hardcore and punk to reveal a beast entirely unto its own. First ever edition on vinyl in 10" format for a far too overlooked 2019 release that had existed only on cassette format up until now.
Hate Propaganda's far too overlooked 2019 debut MLP "World War 666" sees a much needed reissue on vinyl, remastered and enhanced by brand new artwork commissioned for the purpose by Xerox master P. Van Trigt. When it was first released on cassette tape back in 2019 by War Arts Productions, this war-torn debut offering of primeval warnoise by the mysterious Portuguese war criminals stood out immediately as a crown jewel debut for the genre and as one one of the year's most definitive and underrated manifestations of extreme metal's most hateful and berserk fringe. Packing in nineteen minutes of absolute hatred, the annihilating MLP manifests as a nightmare hallucination of complete violence and negativity, evoking eons of perennial apocalyptic global planetary war and terror on the wings of its nefarious design of achieving maximum annihilation in the shortest amount of time possible. To harness this bleak pantheon of ruin, the Portuguese conquerors have assembled a weaponized and uncontrolled sonic chain reaction where grindcore, black metal, death metal and hardcore punk are all accelerated and instigated into an inescapable payload of death aimed straight at the vital sinews of humanity. A sonic maelstrom churned into shape by an onslaught of obscure violent riffs, psychotic leads and ominous laughter which, parallel to a pulverizing drum performance, emanates from oblivion with an antediluvian, negative aura. Comparisons to bands like Diocletian, Heresiarch, Tetragrammacide and 
Nuclearhammer will run abound, yet these would be only easy superficial conjectures as this is a manifestation of sonic extremism which dwells on a plain of excellence entirely its own. Its uniqueness transpires particularly in the maniacal drumming which underlines the band's hardcore and punk influences, and is exalted further by an unusually crystalline production and by a masterful onslaught of uber-audible riffs hiding behind nothing and seemingly going in the opposite direction of the homogenous and indiscernible sensorial smothering the genre usually opts to go in.

Finnish symphonic doom/death metal band DEPRESSED MODE is set to release a new EP WORDS OF DEATH later in 2023 via Inverse Records. The first single Suffer in Darkness is a re-recorded version from Ghost of Devotion album (Firedoom Music, 2007). Female vocals is this time sung by Gogo Melone (Aeonian Sorrow, Clouds).  
Watch Suffer in Darkness lyrics video: https://youtu.be/DnYIVuuIoCU 
Otto Salonen comments:
"Suffer in Darkness was one of the first ever tracks for Depressed Mode. It was something that created the sound for the band, and I’ve been trying to recreate the atmosphere ever since. That’s one of the reasons we’ve decided to re-record this song, and because I always felt like the song ain’t complete with its orchestrations. Now I had the time and tools to create the atmosphere once again, and it’s now enhanced. We once again hired our former drummer Marko Tommila to create drums for the whole EP, and this was the first song re-recorded."

RELICS FROM THE CRYPT
, the sub-label of DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS dedicated to keeping the past alive, is proud to present a long-overdue vinyl reissue of the cult lone album of Australia’s RAMPAGEVEIL OF MOURN. A CD version will also be released, containing the band’s demos.
While there have been many Rampages past and present, there was only one RAMPAGE from Australia – and a more cult band you will not find. Formed in 1985, the band went through several lineup changes before recording their debut demo, Acid Storm, in July 1986. Recorded on a home 4-track, the demo sold well in their native Melbourne but failed to gain any interest. More lineup changes followed the next year, with a pre-production demo recorded as a prelude to their album, but once again, RAMPAGE failed to generate any record company interest. Then, in late 1987, the band recorded, produced, and financed their debut album, Veil of Mourn, which was more-or-less self-released in early 1988. Extensive touring across Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Canberra, and Brisbane followed. Likewise, excellent record sales locally and overseas followed, but no interest from international record companies came. In May 1988, vocalist/guitarist George Mitrov rang bassist Dave Frew and advised that he had found God and would no longer have anything to do with the band; cancellation of all gigs followed. Then, later that year, Frew (who had formed Tyrus with Peter Hobbs) and drummer Bruno Canzianni join Hobbs Angel of Death, and RAMPAGE effectively came to an end.
However, as a lone document of a band and era, RAMPAGE’s Veil of Mourn is superlative in every sense. There’s a distinct ruggedness to the band’s ceaselessly shifting style of thrash. Mind you, NOT necessarily “rawness” – although the album’s production certainly tends toward the rough – but RAMPAGE’s execution eschews the super-clean sharpness that thrash metal was largely heading toward in the post-Master of Puppets era. With form meeting content, the power-trio’s songwriting similarly takes all sorts of labyrinthine paths short of being qualified as “tech,” racing around and restarting with sometimes-maddening fury. Hooks thankfully abounded, and RAMPAGE’s attack undeniably possessed a death metalled underbelly not unlike Dark Angel or aforementioned Oz cult icons Hobbs Angel of Death. With that songwriting often reaching a fever pitch of diabolism and all three members barely keeping that fury in check, Veil of Mourn becomes a palpitating experience, a veritable ‘80s horror movie turned into a thrash record. The creepy cover art only heightened this sensation.
As years passed, the aura around Veil of Mourn only grew, helped in part by Australia’s ever-growing prominence in the extreme metal landscape. RAMPAGE thus became an etched-in-time “what could have been?” cult band, who respectably preserved their legacy with a mere album. Connect the dots to “the Australian sound” with this LONG-overdue reissue!
