SYMMETRIC ORGAN - "STATES OF DECAY"  :  Genre:  Death Metal  :  Germany has a strong and vivid Death-Metal-Underground these days . The map of NRW-Death-Metal got a new clackspot: SYMMETRIC ORGAN from Dortmund. They may seem as a bunch of bloody rookies in the first place. But as soon as you take a closer look you realize: These guys have really left their marks within the scene – live as well as on CDs.
Experience, know how and ruthless hunger build the ground for their very own Idea of highly energetic harsh Grind Death Metal.
They started 2006 as project after major line-up changes of Exposed Guts. Until the split Andreas (Drums) Karsten (guitars) and Philip (Bass, vocals) played all across Germany and Europe to promote „The Way of All Flesh“ which came out in 2003. They shared the stage with bands like Deicide, Monstrosity, Aborted, Master, Waco Jesus, Prostitute
Disfigurement, Isacaarum and God Dethroned. SYMMETRIC ORGAN became serious in 2013 when Ivar joined in (see also Immortal Scorn). The first S.O.-life sign was “World Keeps Falling”, a free 4-track CD-R you to be picked up at gigs.
After a few more shows with bands like Dying Fetus they released their first full-length album “States of Decay”. Sound SYMMETRIC ORGAN play harsh blasting Grind Death Metal by mixing US-Brutal Death Metal, Grindcore and Old School Death Metal. Headbangers, who are into bands like Misery Index, Monstrosity, Dying Fetus, Phobia, Lock Up, Terrorizer, Nasum, Torture Division, Impaled, or Gorefest, should risk their eyes and ears at a Symmetric-Organ-Show.
Recorded 2016 it contains 10 sharp and short songs of blistering harsh Death Metal wihin about 30 minutes time. Our world is rotten in various ways and the album is a soundtrack to those different states of decay.

SCALPTURE - "PANZERDOKTRIN"  :   Genre:  Death Metal   : Scalpture from Bielefeld, Germany was founded in 2009 with the intention to play nothing less than Death Metal. According to Bolt Thrower or Hail of Bullets the most fitting theme for Death Metal is war. And war is what is preached! Not a band with its own imagination of a whole new genre. Scalpture is  marching onwards on the familiar road being backed by older and newer bands like Asphyx, Dismember, Entrails, Weak Aside...
After some relocations they started playing live in 2014. Their 4 track EP Border Crossing followed in April ‘15. Now in 2016 their first full length album PANZERDOKTRIN is about to be released!
Tank riding, artillery firing, infantry storming, moral bombing, border crossing Death Metal.

WORMWOOD joins forces with Non Serviam Records for eagerly anticipated debut album, “GHOSTLANDS - WOUNDS FROM A BLEEDING EARTH”. Swedish atmospheric black metallers WORMWOOD have inked a deal with the Dutch label  Non Serviam Records.
The debut single, entitled “Ghostlands - Wounds From a Bleeding Earth”, will be released early next as a physical release and through all digital platforms.
 The album has been recorded and mastered by Sverker Widgren , a renowned veteran of sound engineering on the Scandinavian extreme metal scene (October Tid, Demonicale, IXXI, DIABOLICAL)
With cover art created by the wildly talented photographer and designer: Mario Polzin of Moornebheym Design
The Album is part of WORMWOOD’s concept that revolves around the endless cycle of death and rebirth of the world. For each phase when man is rendered null, specters roam aimlessly around the earth and in endless wailing they chant about how the world once were and the state it is now.
Comment by WORMWOOD:
“To become a part of the Non Serviam Records family is a honor for us. They have the burning passion for music just like we have so the partnership is perfect. We know that our album is unique and interesting, so to be able to spread the word out with Non Serviam Records is something we’re looking forward to”
Added by Non Serviam Records CEO Ricardo Gelok:
“By hearing the first tones of WORMWOOD, I knew that this is a band that I would have to sign. WORMWOOD is an asset for the label, and it’s a real pleasure to work with this great, and hard-working band!”

Cryptic Realms are onto something special, something life-affirming for the die-hard fans, and it's mandatory to give this promising new band a shot if you like this kind of gnarly and groovy old school death metal.

BOLESNO GRINJE - "GRD"  :  Genre:  Death Metal/Grindcore  :  The beginning of Bolesno Grinje was back in the year 2000, when two enthusiasts Hoc (Anti Otpad) and Rio (Desinence Mortification) started rehearsing with the idea to make something new on the Croatian underground scene.
Soon after they were joined by Angeri (SMC) on vocals and Mrki (Screaming Vagina) on guitars.
In this lineup the band recorded first full lenght album "Pobjeda je nasa" (released later in 2005 by EBM and Cryptas Records), and the songs for split LP with Sod'n'dan. They did a lots of shows in Croatia and Slovenia.
In 2002 lineup was changed a bit, Mrki left and Jule (Anti Otpad) replaced him on guitar.
The band was very active in song writing, from 2006 to 2009 they made 3 full lenght albums: "Od nesvijesti do grinda", "Nitko nas ne vidi...ali mi ipak postojimo", "Krvave ruke...krvavi novac", also one EP: "1 Mozak", and one split CD.
In this lineup band played a lots of shows, the one that should be mentioned is a show on the legendary freak friendly Obscene Extreme Fest in 2006.
In 2010 the lineup was changed again, Rio left and was replaced by Luze on drums. This lineup recorded everything from the 5th full lenght "Grinje!Grinje!Grinje!" until now.
The big curse of Bolesno Grinje was that from 2007 to 2013 some members had a "no entry into EU" restriction, so we couldn't play outside of the balkans for some time!
This album is Bolesno Grinje 8th full lenght.
Recorded & mixed at GROBNICA studio.

HENRY KANE (Sweden) - 'DEN FÖRSTÖRDA MÄNNISKANS RIKE'   :  Genre - Death Metal/Crust  :  For fans of - Skitsystem, Nihlist, Dismember, Entombed, Carnage, Nasum, Extreme Noise Terror, Napalm Death  :  From Jonny Pettersson of WOMBBATH comes HENRY KANE, a ferocious slab of crusty Swedish death metal like no other. Rarely before has death metal been so vigorously channelled via the template of crustcore, leaving it infected with rabid fervour few can muster up the courage to withstand. This not only blends genres but lends to it an atmospheric quality fostered by an emotional undercurrent. Amidst slabs of cascading concrete, you have faint but poignant melodies making an appearance, changing the landscape of this expression. Nostalgic yet amplified to modern day aggression, HENRY KANE is the future of Swedish death metal and crust, a marriage made in a perfect post-apocalyptic world.

It’s been 9 long years but now we can finally reveal that DEINONYCHUS is back. Its reactivated Dutch protagonist, Marco Kehren, has set "ODE TO ACTS OF MURDER, DYSTOPIA AND SUICIDE" as the title of the long-awaited new album.
Marco entered Spacelab Studio in Grefrath, Germany with Christian Moos a few weeks ago to begin recordings for his 8th album, the band's first release since "Warfare Machines" released on 2007. Steve Wolz (Bethlehem) will play the drums as it was for "Insomia" album.
"Ode To Acts Of Murder, Dystopia And Suicide" will be released worldwide for My Kingdom Music on October 2017. My Kingdom Music will also re-release the band's back catalogue, including the classic "Deinonychus" and "Ark Of Thought" out of catalogue from many years.
Marco Kehren comments: "After the recordings of "Warfare Machines" back in 2006 I felt things spinning downwards as for my involvement with Deinonychus, so just one year after its release, I decided to put things to rest in September 2008. That was the time when I started with Nihil Novi Sub Sole doing something closer to Martial / Industrial music. After releasing one album with Nihil Novi Sub Sole in 2010, I was about to get things together with Deinonychus again, but for several reasons it just didn't come of the ground, it just didn't feel like being the right moment... I just hadn't got back that vibe which I had years before. However things have evolved eversince, and in early 2016 I decided to pick up things again in a serious matter and speeding up any efforts necessary to get Deinonychus back on track. So early 2016 a start was made in composing a new Deinonychus album. For the new album we are recording drums with Steve Wolz (Bethlehem). The album recordings process will be finished by the beginning of the new year at the Klangschmiede Studio under the guidance of Markus Stock (The Vision Bleak / Empyrium). Then we'll take care of the process of mixing and mastering that will lead me and my always present label My Kingdom Music to the release of this new album in the fall 2017.
I have invested my soul in this album, and I'm certain you'll get in your hands the best, powerful and mournful DEINONYCHUS music you have ever listened to".
THE REPLICATE (US) - 'A SELFISH DREAM'    :   Genre - Technical Death Metal  :   For fans of - Death, Cynic, Grace Disgraced, Atheist, Nocturnus, Carcass   :  Technical death metal is more often than not considered to be inhuman or soulless. Here's one to counter that prevalent perception. The brainchild of Sandesh Nagaraj, who is someone with an illustrious past being a member of bands like MYNDSNARE (legendary Indian death metal band from the late '90s), EXTINCT REFLECTIONS and STRANGLEHOLD, THE REPLICATE merges influences of bands like DEATH, CYNIC, ATHEIST, CARCASS and turns it into something magnificent and unpredictable with an atmospheric quality to it. Here's technical death metal that actually sounds personal, that exudes a warm vibe and reeks of unmistakable passion. A short EP, this one is destined to get repeat listens as the band prepares for even greater things. 
Track list: 
1. Chainsaw Of God 
2. Eugenicide
3. The Saline
4. A Selfish Dream
Line up: 
Sandesh Nagaraj – Guitar and Bass

NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS SARKOM STREAM NEW ALBUM IN ITS ENTIRETY AHEAD OF RELEASE DATE : "ANTI-COSMIC ART", the new album from veteran Norwegian Black Metallers SARKOM is streaming in its entirety ahead of its 2nd December release date.  The album can be heard exclusively on No Clean Singing at
The  seven-track album was originally intended to mark the band's tenth anniversary, but was unavoidably delayed due to a series of personal and technical difficulties.  "Anti-Cosmic Art" displays the versatility of the Norwegian veterans, ranging, as it does, from Old School Black Metal to more experimental tracks.  It is brutally catchy, largely guitar-driven, and the whole is imbued with the crushingly dark sound that SARKOM has made its own. 
 SARKOM's choice of guest artists for "Anti-Cosmic Art" is a clear indication of how unafraid the band is to step out of their comfort zone with appearances from the likes of SHINING's Peter Huss,  Ronni Le Tekrø from TNT and ROQUEFIRE and TROLLFEST's Sagstad  contributing to give the album its guitar-driven sound, whilst  ALFAHANNE frontman  Pehr Skjoldhammer's  distinctive vocals add a completely different dimension to the track "Come, dear Cancer".
With artwork by Spectrvm Lvsitani, tracklisting for "Anti-Cosmic Art" is as follows:
1.Previous associates, now as targets for the gun
3.Ruiners of our family tree
4.Seen through the eyes of a paedophile priest
5.Come, dear cancer
6.Black metal necrophilia
7.Sodomy and lust (Sodom cover). 
SARKOM bassist Sgt V will be doing a DJ turn at Kniven in Oslo on the 2nd December, where he will play the whole of "Anti-Cosmic Art" to mark its release.
Confirmed upcoming shows for SARKOM:
03 Dec:  Good Omens, Trondheim, Norway
17 Dec:  Revolver, Oslo, Norway
15 Apr: Dark Easter Metal Meeting, Munich, Germany
More information about SARKOM can be found on the band’s Facebook page at
"Anti-Cosmic Art", is set for release on Dark Essence Records on the 2nd December, and it is now available to pre-order, together with related merchandise from   and the US website at  in CD format , as well as at  where the album is also available digitally.
The official video for “Inferior Bleeding” from SARKOM’s “Bestial Supremacy” can be seen below and at
AVULSED (Spain) - 'DEATHGENERATION'   :  Genre - Death Metal   :  For fans of - Suffocation, Broken Hope, Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Incantation, Asphyx, Aborted   :   This is just massive. 'Deathgeneration' is a double album with some of the best songs of the band's 25-year long career not only completely re-recorded but also featuring 16 guest vocalists of respected bands around the world such as AT THE GATES, ABORTED, DEMILICH, AUTOPSY, GOD MACABRE, PENTAGRAM CHILE, MASSACRE, PAGANIZER, SINISTER, INCANTATION, PURTENANCE, MORTICIAN, SUPURATION, INTERMENT, NECROPHILIAC and DETERIOROT. It is difficult to imagine if you've still not heard AVULSED's music, but it's fetid and catchy death metal, brutal yet having roots in the old school sound but with updated execution and delivery. Dave Rotten's (also Xtreem Music head honcho) vocals are legendary - they're some of the deepest ones you'll hear, and he doesn't use any effects either. This release covers the entire recorded material of the band over the period of 25 years and the second disc has the same songs in their originally recorded glory. 'Deathgeneration' is way too ambitious and no stones have been left unturned in any possible way - it features excellent new artwork as well as brilliant packaging with a jaw-dropping 44-page booklet to go with it. This is not only a fantastic way to commemorate 25 years of this unheralded death metal band, but also serves as a great introduction to AVULSED's music for the uninitiated.

Garantiert nicht zuviel des Guten, OVERKILL, DARKENED NOCTURN SLAUGHTERCULT und NIGHT DEMON kommen. Leute,  wir verzichten absichtlich auf die Riten der Vorweihnachtszeit und präsentieren euch einfach mal drei neue Bands, die unser Billing 2017 bereichern werden. Wer sein Ticket noch nicht hat, kann selbiges wie gewohnt bei  bestellen. 
Seit über 30 Jahren sind OVERKILL an der Weltspitze des Thrash Metal zu finden. Während sich zahllose andere Bands dieses Kalibers diverse Auszeiten gegönnt oder sich zwischenzeitlich auch mal auf stilistische Irrwege begeben haben, hat die Band um Frontderwisch Bobby „Blitz“ Ellsworth stets das gemacht, was sie am besten kann: treibende Songs mit messerscharfen Riffs und geballter Power. „In Union We Stand“ - hier beehrt uns eine echte Legende!
DARKENED NOCTURN SLAUGHTERCULT gehören ohne Zweifel zu den stärksten deutschen Black Metal-Bands, die sich ohne Kompromisse der alten Schule dieser Spielart verschrieben haben. Hier wird nordisch-rasender Black Metal mit einer äußerst blutigen und verdunkelten Agenda verbunden, welche sicherlich ihresgleichen sucht. Diese Band hat Identität, Finesse und spielt einfach atemberaubende Shows.
NIGHT DEMON zählen zur Speerspitze der neueren Heavy Metal-Bands aus den Vereinigten Staaten, die - völlig trendresistent - der alten, von der NWOBHM beeinflussten Metal-Schule frönen und denen bei Konzerten und Tourneen kein Weg zu weit ist. Mit „Curse Of The Damned“ hat man eines der geilsten Genre-Alben der letzten Jahre veröffentlicht und so wird es Zeit, dass die Jungs auch mal bei uns ihre Hymnen zocken.
Die deutschen Black Metaller STREAMS OF BLOOD haben ihr neues Albumfertig gestellt und jetzt erste Informationen preisgegeben. So wird das dritte Full-Length-Werk „ALLGEGENWÄRTIG“ heißen und am 27.02.2017 via Folter Records erscheinen. Erneut gibt es bei STREAMS OF BLOOD keine Kompromisse, sondern brutalen, tiefen, aber trotzdem manchmal melodischen Black Metal zu hören.
1. Stella Nova (Collapse)
2. Corossion
3. Detox
4. Open your third eye
5. Fusion
6. Man Owes Nature Only Death (Conduct)
7. Regeneration
8. Transformation

Swedish death metal project DIATONIC is streaming a brand new song entitled "The Eyes", which is taken off the band's upcoming album "I AM THE ONE", out tomorrow, November 25th, in Europe. Diatonic is the solo project of Joakim Antman, a Swedish musician who plays bass in the likes of The Ugly, Skitarg and Overtorture. For this project, the musician shows his multi-instrumental capability and teams up with Marduk's drummer Fredrik Widigs to provide what we will simply call a swedish death metal beast!

DETAILS OF UPCOMING ALBUM FROM NORWEGIAN VIKING METALLERS HELHEIM REVEALED :  Dark Essence Records have announced that the 20th January has been set for the release of "LANDAWARIJAR" the much-anticipated ninth full-length album from Norwegian Viking Metallers HELHEIM.
"landawarijaR" will contain seven tracks, all of which bear the hallmarks of HELHEIM's traditional Norse heritage.  A Heritage  of which they are rightly proud and to which they have remained true, eschewing the temptation to turn themselves into the Viking parodies that so many bands have espoused.   With "landawarijaR" HELHEIM use their lyrics to express the need to include the Norse Heritage into modern life by emphasising the importance, mystery and never-changing wonder of the Runes. 
Just as HELHEIM's "raunijaR" followed in the same vein as its predecessor "Asgards Fall", "landawarijaR" continues where "Heidindomr" ended.  All four albums incorporate the use of Timpani and Horns, and the new album also has a number of artists performing guest vocals including William Hut, Morten Egeland (NARROWHEAD), Pehr Skjoldhammer (ALFAHANNE),  Bjornar E Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR) and Ottorpedo.
 With music by by H'grimnir and V'gandr,  lyrics by V'gandr and  artwork by H'grimnir, "landawarijaR"   was recorded at the Conclave and Earshot Studios in Bergen, and produced by Bjornar E. Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR) and mastered by Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED). 
Tracklisting for "landawarijaR" is as follows:
1. Ymr
2. Baklengs mot intet
3. Rista blodørn
4. landawarijaR 
5. Ouroboros
6. Synir af heidindomr
7. Enda-dagr
HELHEIM recently announced that two songs from the album were being turned into videos by Guilherme Henriques, who is both producing and directing the videos.  'Ymr' and 'Baklengs mot intet' are the songs that been chosen because, as the band  explained, they are  "neatly intertwined into a dualism which Guillherme will portray".  The videos are expected to be debuted in the run-up to the release of "landawarijaR".
A series of stills from the video shoot by the photographer Mathis Backe of Yggdrasil Photo (  ), and featuring HELHEIM's lineup of Vgandr on bass and vocals, Hgrimnir on rhythm guitar and vocals, Noralf on rhythm and lead guitar and Hrymr on drums and programming , were recently published, and can be seen on HELHEIM's Facebook page at
More information about HELHEIM can be found on the band's website at  or on Facebook at
The official video of the track “Dualitet og Ulver” which features a guest appearance from TAAKE’s Hoest, from HELHEIM’s ”Heiðindómr ok mótgangr” album can be seen at
Nine tracks covering 20 years of HELHEIM’s history can be heard on the band’s SoundCloud page at
NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS CREST OF DARKNESS DEBUT VIDEO FROM UPCOMING ALBUM ON YOUTUBE :  With the release date for CREST OF DARKNESS' seventh full-length album "WELCOME THE DEAD" having been brought forward to the 25th November, the band has released a video for the title track.  Directed by Anders Børresen for MONITORmeda, the video for "Welcome the Dead" can be seen on CREST OF DARKNESS'  YouTube channel at
Commenting on the video, founder and frontman Ingar Amlien had this to say: "We wanted to make a video that offers a glimpse into the dark world of CREST OF DARKNESS.  Perhaps we are just story tellers recounting a fairytale,  and the video can certainly be viewed and enjoyed at that level, but we are also  touching on aspects of Life itself and those eternal questions that people ask themselves about life and death and the meaning of it all. 
"We might not have all the answers, and in all honesty we don't even want to pretend that we do, but what we do want is to make people think for themselves, and find their own answers .  Let's face it, we are all Gods.  Each of us builds their own universe, and it just happens that the world of CREST OF DARKNESS is my universe".
Recorded at the at MLP Studio by Nils H. Mæhlum, and mastered at the Kvålsonic Lab by Tom Kvålsvoll, the nine-track album promises to be the heaviest, darkest and most introspective album in the band's twenty plus year history.    It will be released on My Kingdom Music in both CD and Digital formats, as well as a double LP format which will feature a special bonus track. 
With artwork that features  the strange and disturbing Zombie Foetus sculptures created by the Italian artist Andrea Falaschi, tracklisting is as follows:
1. Welcome The Dead
2. Chosen By The Devil
3. Scourged And Crucified
4. My Black Bride
5. Borrowed Life
6. The Almighty
7. Memento Mori
8. The Noble Art
9. Katharsis
"Welcome the Dead" includes a guest appearance  by Norwegian actor Espen Reboli Bjerke, well known for his extensive work in films, theatre, radio and Television.  Bjerke, who also won a Spelleman Award, the Norwegian equivalent of the Grammies, performs the  spoken part on "Katharsis",  the closing track on the album. 
Amlien, whose illustrious musical history started with the legendary CONCPTION, and includes  ROQUEFIRE and  AMLIEN's INFERNO,  confirms that "Welcome the Dead" has a particular significance for him:  " I've put a hell of a lot of myself and my emotions  into this album, even more so than usual.  I've always felt that when we are on stage, we create a sort of magic, and this time we have been able to transfer that magic to the recordings.  You could say this is my personal Black Mass".
CREST OF DARKNESS' lineup of  Amlien on bass and vocals, Rebo on guitars, Bernhard (ex- PALE FOREST) on drums, and Kristian Wentzel on keyboards,  will celebrate the release of "Welcome the Dead" with a show special Friday the 13th show at Retro in Raufoss, Norway, in January.    
More information about CREST Of Darkness can be found on the band's Facebook page at  
"Welcome the Dead" is now available to order from  in CD and 2LP formats and in digital format at  on release, as well all the usual retailers.
Nine tracks tracing the history of CREST OF DARKNESS, can be heard on the band’s SoundCloud page at  ,  whilst the official playlist, which includes the  band's entire catalogue can be heard on Spotify at
ILEMAUZAR (Singapore) - 'THE ASCENSION'  :   Genre - Thrashy Death/Black Metal   :  For fans of - Behemoth, Rudra, Assault, The Wandering Ascetic, Impiety, Desaster, Destroyer 666  :   After Rudra, we have Ilemazuar from Singapore playing their own style of vicious black/death metal. Asian talent has long been overlooked but with their signing to a regional exclusive sub-label,  Transcending Obscurity Asia , for their new album, Ilemauzar hope to spread their wings wider, especially in the Western world. The music is most reminiscent of Behemoth and their recent exploits, but the band have their own way of concocting music, invariably using their country's lineage as a form of influence. Hard-hitting, driven and memorable, 'The Ascension' paves the way for the band's much anticipated new album that's due next year.

Bloodcurse - All Vocals. 
Nivlek - Guitar

DOEDSVANGR - WITH MEMBERS OF TSJUDER, HORNA, BEHEXEN, NORDJEVEL  - SIGNS WITH IMMORTAL FROST PRODUCTIONS : The news earlier this year that Norwegian frontman Doedsadmiral  was forming a new band was greeted with a fair amount of interest, given that this shadowy figure had already created  three bands with lineups that include some of the best known and experienced musicians in the extreme metal genres.  Bands that have not only gained a large fan base, but  also released critically acclaimed albums, and all within a very short space of time.  
And it seems that his new band, DOEDSVANGR, is set to follow in the footsteps of its predecessors. With Shatraug (HORNA, SARGEIST, BEHEXEN and NIGHTBRINGER) and  Anti-Christian (TSJUDER,  BEATEN TO DEATH) joining the frontman on guitars and drums respectively, the band has inked a deal with the Dutch label Immortal Frost Productions for the release of its first album. 
With its debut full-length, which will be titled "Satan Ov Suns", DOEDSVANGER has created an album, that, according to the band is "very dark work, very  evil and with extreme variations, but with a lot of groove".  Drums for "Satans Ov Suns" were recorded at the Oslo Klang studios, Vocals were mixed and mastered at Velvet Redording in Sypdeberg, Norway, and Guitars and Bass were recorded in Tampere, Finland.  The album will be mixed and mastered by producer Bjarne Stensli.  "Satan Ov Suns" is set for release in 2017 at a date as yet to be announced.
Doedsadmiral's bands have proved to be very popular with fans  of the Black Metal genre.  NORDJEVEL, which includes current and former members of MARDUK, RAGNAROK, FATAL IMPACT, TVANGESTE and BYRDI, is the first of the bands who has stepped out of the studio and is making an impact on the live scene,  whilst SVARTELDER, with current and former members of CARPATHIAN FOREST,  IN THE WOODS, DEN SAAKALDTE, PANTHEON I and OLD FOREST, and ENEPSIGOS with current and former members of SARKOM, BLUT AUS NORD, DEATHROW, FIDES INVERSA, FROSTMOON ECLISPE and DARVAZA are still studio-based.
So what does he have in mind for DOEDSVANGR, and why add yet another band to his "portfolio"?
"All my other bands each have a different sound  and musical ethos one from the other, and DOEDSVANGR is one that comes from a much darker direction.  DOEDSVANGR, like the other projects in which I'm involved, does not come from me alone, but is the result of two great musicians coming onboard so that together we can create music the way we all want it to sound, and perform it in a way that we all want to hear it.  Will DOEDSVSANGR perform live one day?  That remains to be seen, let's just see where the album takes us first.
"Why another band?  Why not? I've been a fan of Black Metal, and all it's different forms, for as long as I can remember.  In fact, it was just the other day that I was saying to my manager, Patricia Thomas,  that it has been twelve years since she and I first started talking about doing what I'm doing right now.  Whilst many say that I do have some skill as a vocalist, I certainly don't class myself as a brilliant musician, or writer, or anything even close to it come to that,. But I have been fortunate enough to have the means that allow me to create different bands within the Extreme genre and bring together different artists, exceptional artists at that, for whom I have long had an enormous respect, and whose skills and experience fortunately more than make up for my own shortcomings. It's that "bringing together" of these superb artists, and allowing them free reign with what they do musically, that is, and always will be, the crux of what I do.   Am I living the dream?  Yes, most definitely!  Do I work hard at all aspects of it?  You bet I do!  Will there be more to come in the future?  Just watch this space!"
A rough demo track to give fans an idea of what to expect from the band, can be heard at

Swedish Black/Death Metal veterans OMNIZIDE will release their sophomore album NEKROREGIME December 16 on Carnal Records in Europe and Daemon Worship Productions in the U.S. Featuring vocals by Nox (CRAFT) and music written by Anders/AE (AVSKY), NekroRegime consists of nine tracks of pure War! Stream the title track at
NekroRegime was recorded and mixed by Erik Hagelberg at DeathWomb Studio in the winter of 2015/2016. The album was mastered by Jona Kjellgren at Blacklounge Studio.
Decibel Magazine nailed it in describing OMNIZIDE's sound as "old-school DARKTHRONE, and falls somewhere between the nexus of death metal and physically imposing Swedish black metal, bands such as NAGLFAR and WATAIN." Get the picture? Now prepare for War!
Track Listing:
1. Himmelstrasse (330ft)
2. The Return of the Loving Dead
3. Walls of Flesh
4. Doomsday Revelations
5. Deathwomb

NECROVEN (Spain) - 'PRIMORDIAL SUBJUGATION'    :  Genre - Dark Death Metal  :  For fans of - Morbid Angel, Incantation, Immolation, Dead Congregation  : Leave it to Memento Mori to unearth the finest from the underground. Death metal band Necroven from Spain have conjured up their latest and it's just what you think it sounds like looking at the stunning hand-painted Joe Petagno artwork (Vader, Krisiun, Incantation) - dark, festering, cryptic death metal. The music seethes with unmitigated fury, with Necroven churning out sick, earth-rumbling tunes, the air reeking of malice and anger, and there being enough friction to set things afire. Fans of Morbid Angel, Incantation, Immolation, Sadistic Intent and Dead Congregation will find a new favourite in Necroven. Mastered at the infamous Resonance Sound Studio by Dan Lowndes (Cruciamentum, Grave Miasma), everything is perfect in essence and this is the second coming of death metal that is pure and untainted by trends.

GENRE: Grindcore, Sludge, Black Metal
FFO:  Call of the Void, Pig Destroyer, Cult Leader, Rorschach, Ancst, Gaza, Cursed...
You gotta love fucked up punk rock splits. ILL NEGLECT and LAMBS reflect something we have all come to love. There is something twisted about their latest joint offering, 'Trisma' that is hard to ignore and which inspires you to dig ever deeper.
These bands hit that killer cross section of sludge, crust punk, black metal and grindcore that makes you squirm with joy. It's easy to get lost in what the band has done and you find yourself pulling apart sonic highways that represent a sort of demented reality that few of us could ever ignore.      Facebook    Bandcamp    Store

DOOMCULT - "END ALL LIFE"  :  Genre:  Doom-metal  :  Doomcult is a band situated in the south of the Netherlands. The present recording, end all life, is a gathering of songs which together make a concept album about, well, the end of life. Parts of the songs date many years back, other parts and all arrangements date to 2014. The music of doomcult was to some extent inspired by the Peaceville three (Paradise Lost, Anathema and My Dying Bride), but also by many non-doom bands, like Urfaust. Lyrically, doomcult tries to stay away from the common themes of desperation and despair, building on a story about collusion, which offers the opportunity to add some more aggressive and misanthropic themes. With respect to the vocals, doomcult doesn’t use grunts, nor traditional clean vocals. In stead, doomcult uses harsh screaming and some growls. By doing so, doomcult intended to add some new thoughts to the genre. In total seven songs were recorded to make up the afore mentioned concept album. In May 2016 the album was made available by Morbid Syndicate and doomcult appeared on compilations by Utraje magazine (Portugal) and Basted Zine (France).  Underground music for underground people.

OSTMETAL-Newsletter vom 15.11.2016: Guten Morgen, liebe Ostmetal-Gemeinde! Zuerst muß ich eine Richtigstellung zum aktuellen EISENBLATT #14 nachreichen: Aufgrund eines Mißverständnisses im MCB-Interview mit Mike Demnitz habe ich ihm SCHIKORA als Band zugeordnet, in der er früher mal gespielt haben soll. Dem war aber nicht so! Hintergrund: Die Aufzählung der SCHIKORA-Band (bei gleichzeitiger Nennung der Kapellen von FRED HERFTER und THEO SCHUMANN) bezog sich auf die Dresdener Szene der damaligen Zeit und nicht (wie von mir angenommen) auf die Liste seiner ehemaligen Bands. Bitte entschuldigt das Mißverständnis und berichtigt die Geschichtschreibung entsprechend den neuen Informationen!
Außerdem wollte ich Euch noch auf die eben gestartete Weihnachtsaktion in unserem Einkaufsladen hinweisen: Wir haben den Mindestbestellwert für eine versandkostenfreie Lieferung halbiert (gilt aber nur innerhalb Deutschlands!), so daß ihr nun schon ab 50 Euro Warenwert kein Porto mehr zahlen müßt.
Wählt aus unserem Angebot an CDs, LPs, DVDs und Aufnähern von den Bands wie BIEST, BLITZZ, DEATHTRAP, DEFCON, DIVISION SPEED, FATAL EMBRACE, FIRST AID, GLADIATORS, GORGONS EYES, HARDHOLZ, J.T.RIPPER, KALI YUGA, MACBETH, MOSHQUITO (früher auch ARGUS, heute XIOM), MUSICAL MASSACRE, OBSCURITY TRUTH, PHARAO, PROWLER, PURGATORY, ROCHUS, SERPENT und TOXIC EVOLUTION.

Every release is expected to be top-notch, and the latest one by the Russian atmospheric doom band Revelations of Rain is no different. It cements the sound of melancholic doom entities such as My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, Officium Triste, Doom:VS, Skepticism and Tyranny and elaborates upon it by weaving together fragile and elegant melodies. This is death/doom of the highest order, painstakingly written and passionately expressed. Everything is near perfect, if this is the kind of music you're in - deep, atmospheric and powerful. It's the perfect album to listen to as winter comes close.

L.A. Thrashers ANGER AS ART have released an official video for "Unknowing, Undead," a song from latest album AD MORTEM FESTINAMUS. The video can be viewed at:
Ad Mortem Festinamus was released March 11 on Old School Metal Records. On the highly anticipated follow-up to 2013 barnstormer Hubris, Inc. the quartet has done the improbable by creating a roaring thrash metal beast that doesn't just raise the bar; it crushes it into dust. Order Ad Mortem Festinamus  here .
Recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered by Ronald Sandoval at Rev Studios, Chino CA, Ad Mortem Festinamus (Latin translation: We Hurry into Death) is everything you've come to expect from ANGER AS ART...and more! Speeding recklessness, lacerating solos, and a shrapnel storm of riffs combine to make what will undoubtedly be considered one of 2016's fiercest forays into Thrash Metal Armageddon. Ad Mortem Festinamus is venomous, angry thrash/speed/death metal. If you feel that no one hears your voice and you're pissed about it, then this is the album for you...because everyone is angry, and ANGER is beautiful!
You may read a number of bios where bands will extol their virtues of being the next big thing, as important as Led Zeppelin, inventor of the wheel. ANGER AS ART doesn't do that.  They don't need to. 
To know what ANGER AS ART is, one can look at what they have been since 2004.  A first rate, old school thrash metal band - rooted in the history created by the members of the band.   Take one look at their lineage - members of Abattoir, Evil Dead, Bloodlust, Hirax, Reverend, Bitch... and know where they are going.
Two World Tours, shows with Destruction, Overkill, Testament, Death Angel, Exodus, Saxon, Agent Steel, ex- Maiden vocalists Bayley and DiAnno, Tankard, Onslaught, Katatonia and many more.

New England Industrial Metal Duo INVERTIA has teamed with The Gauntlet for the exclusive premiere of new single "ANOTHER BIG BROTHER," a track from forthcoming album THE BIDDINGS OF TYRANTS. Stream it at  this location.
INVERTIA will release The Biddings of Tyrants on December 9. Following 2014's sophomore tour de force Another Scheme of the Wicked (Ohm Resistance), the new self-release sees INVERTIA taking its oppressive industrial metal to harsh new heights. Pre-order the album at
Stream new song "Dystopia," featuring drummer Aaron Rossi (MINISTRY, PRONG), at
The Biddings of Tyrants still retains the INVERTIA sound of industrial black metal with added elements of death metal and hardcore punk.  The album as a whole, musically and lyrically, focuses on the world around us and its effect on the human psyche.  However, each song is a different Bidding from a different Tyrant.
Produced by INVERTIA, The Biddings of Tyrants again features the multi-talented tandem of Dave Coppola (vocals, guitars, bass, FX, samples) and Tim Winson (drum programming, synth, mixing/mastering). The album also features the drumming of Aaron Rossi (MINISTRY, PRONG) and Kevin Talley (SUFFOCATION, DYING FETUS, SIX FEET UNDER); the former performing on "Dystopiate," "Non-Sunni," and "The Forever Incision," and the latter on "Scatter" and "Not for Taste."
INVERTIA is influenced by many styles of music and many artists, including MINISTRY, ABORYM, MAYHEM, IMMORTAL, GODFLESH, and SKINNY PUPPY, as well as WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS and GEORGE CARLIN.
Track Listing:
1. Another Big Brother
2. Dystopiate

NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS SARKOM REVEAL SECOND TRACK FROM UPCOMING ALBUM :  December can't come fast enough for the legions of SARKOM fans who have been waiting for the release of the band's fourth full-length album "ANTI-COSMIC ART".  Having previously given us a taste from the album, Dark Essence Records is now ready with a second track to whet everyone's appetite further.  The track, "Previous associates, now as targets for the gun" can be heard streaming on YouTube at the following links:
Zero Tolerance Magazine
Friedhof Magazine
Veterans of the Norwegian Black Metal scene, SARKOM are known for their crushingly dark sound, and with the brutally catchy "Anti-Cosmic Art" album, the band produce more of the same, but this time they also show that far from being afraid to step out of their comfort zone, they happily embrace the idea and take their listeners on a journey that ranges from  Old School Black Metal through to more experimental tracks.  
Even the choice of guest artists indicates how versatile the band's music can be, with appearances from the likes of SHINING's Peter Huss,  Ronni Le Tekrø from TNT and ROQUEFIRE and TROLLFEST's Sagstad  who all contribute to give "Anti-Cosmic Art" a guitar-driven sound, as well as ALFAHANNE frontman  Pehr Skjoldhammer whose distinctive vocals add a completely different dimension to the track "Come, dear Cancer".
With  artwork by Spectrvm Lvsitani, tracklisting for "Anti-Cosmic Art" is as follows:
1.Previous associates, now as targets for the gun
3.Ruiners of our family tree
4.Seen through the eyes of a paedophile priest
5.Come, dear cancer
6.Black metal necrophilia
7.Sodomy and lust (Sodom cover)
To  mark the release of "Anti-Cosmic Art" SARKOM will play the following two Norwegian dates:
03 Dec:  Good Omens, Trondheim
17 Dec:  Revolver, Oslo  
 "Anti-Cosmic Art", is set for release on Dark Essence Records on the 2nd December, and it is now available to pre-order, together with related merchandise from   and the US website at  in CD format , as well as at   where the album is also available digitally.

STENCH PRICE (International) - 'SELF-TITLED'   :   Genre - Death Metal/Grindcore   :   For fans of - Exit 13, Brutal Truth, Fuck the Facts, Bathtub Shitter, Lock Up, Nasum   :   Stench Price are a grind 'supergroup' like no other. Not only do they feature star contributions from members of Necrophagist, Cynic, Brutal Truth, Paganizer, Hail of Bullets and others, the music too is of a different audacious kind. Mastermind Peter Shallmin has bombarded the already caustic music with bossa/lounge music in way that it all seems thoroughly fascinating. It's never been done before, at least not in such a brilliant manner where it adds a dimension to the music without taking away anything from it. The genre has been stagnating and it's time to bring in avant-garde influences that change the way we perceive it. Every song has unique contributions and a different edge to make sure that they not only stand out, but leave an indelible mark on the scene. There's none like Stench Price and this is only the beginning. 
Track list: 
1. Living Fumes (ft. Dan Lilker of Brutal Truth) 
2. Furnaces Burn (ft. Rogga Johansson of Paganizer) 
3. Pressure (ft. Karina Utomo of High Tension) 
4. 4.27.15 (ft. Max Phelps of Cynic)
5. The Genocide Machine (ft. Dave Ingram of Hail of Bullets)
6. The Vitality Slip (ft. Shawn Knight of Child Bite)
Line up: 
France – Romain Goulon – Drums (NECROPHAGIST) 
USA – Danny Lilker (BRUTAL TRUTH)

Hello! Just a friendly reminder that MISANTHROPIC RAGE's debut full-length GATES NO LONGER SHUT will be released this Friday, 18 November 2016. Check it out below and play it loud!
A duo hailing from Poland, Misanthropic Rage are a literal whirlwind of avant-garde black metal. Aptly titled, Gates No Longer Shut is a 40-minute firestorm of frayed logic, feverish frequencies, and ceremonial magick.
With dissonant riffing colliding with spiraling melodies, down-tempo trudges giving way to tornadoes of hypnotic speed, scabrous blackened vocals fighting with clean-toned exhortations, Gates No Longer Shut entrances the listener with a continual, torturously twisting push 'n' pull.Within, Misanthropic Rage embrace the slipstream, weaving cryptic tales across thoroughly seamless songwriting, and yet never losing sight of each song's emotional center.
Similarly, the duo remained grounded firmly within black metal, but caring enough to push its boundaries in a respectable, reverential manner, never getting caught up in trendy "post" this or that, instead nodding to the pioneering days of Moonfog during the late '90s. Indeed, the past is alive with Gates No Longer Shut, and Misanthropic Rage are the future! (Words by Nathan T. Birk)

CTULU return with their untitled fourth album and this has it all! 8 songs between madness, hatred and despair. In their own words, the band describes the new output as follows: „We've been collecting pathetic disappointments for three years now and transformed them into hate.“
In the last 3 years a lot has happened in the camp of the north german. The new album will surprise some, that's for sure. This is CTULU today: never been as fast, never been as slow. Ugly and primitive, uncomfortable, yet always melodic and manifold. This album breathes the stench of a freshly excavated sea grave. Narrated by two insane priests; screaming, whispering, gasping and shrieking verses from the Necromonicon at the top of their lungs.
For fans of extreme metal!
From January 2017 the International Black Metal collaboration THE COMMITTEE is proud to announce the release of their second full length album “MEMORANDUM OCCULTUS” via Folter Records. The album is the result of hard work and years of research. The 6 songs of this album are chronologically and strategically selected to form one single unit that invites you into a new Global chapter of THE COMMITTEE.
Album Description
Memorandum Occultus is a methodological journey through a dark world of intrigues, lies, deceit, outright manipulation, suffering and genocide. The image is shown through the eyes of the rich and powerful shepherds that pass their knowledge to the next generation of rulers. It is a story for those of us who realize that the crooked mirror of “every day reality” is a mere veil pulled over our eyes. Memorandum Occultus is a detailed roadmap for enslavement and outright genocide of millions. It is a ruthlessly effective and flawless system of steps and guidelines for a self sustaining system of “Structureless Control” perfected over many centuries.
The Band
From 2007 THE COMMITTEE was born as a one man project and remained so for many years. From 2012 with the addition of new members, it became a complete band. The Committee takes pride in
the rich cultural diversity of their members, being a complete international collaboration. Since the release of the debut “Holodomor” the band attracted interest in the underground extreme Metal scene. After the release of the full length album “Power Through Unity” The Committee started performing live. Although the collaboration does not perform many live events, they strive to make each and every event into a ritual. Their focus is on the music and the message. Their motto is: “Anthems of the Executioners – Voice of the Dead”
THE COMMITTEE is not a political band and does not promote any extremist ideologies. The views of the band are cold, pragmatic and methodological with a twist of cold cunning realism
The Music
Originally THE COMMITTEE started out as a doom metal band. However with the influence of the new members, new refreshing black metal riffs were added and subsequently brought the band to a new level. One of the trademarks of The Committee is a low, guttural guitar sound that touches the senses and emotions. The drums have different degrees of variation from slow dragging ritualistic and tribal tones to full throttle blast beats. The bass is not limited to a support act, but provides the needed variation in the form of self expressed solo's and punchy attacks. The low “grinding stone” vocals tell the story of pain, suffering and sheer horror.
As a special act, there are 3 guest vocalists performing on “Memorandum Occultus”
The Members
Igor Mortis ( Guitar – Vocals )
William Auruman ( Drums – Percussion )
Aristo Crassade ( Guitar – Vocals )
Marc Abre ( Bass )
Urok ( Keyboards )
Navigator ( Guest Vocals )
Special members for “Memorandum Occultus”
Chris ( Vocals )
B ( Vocals )
Glad ( Vocals )
Summary of the Album
Memorandum Occultus features 6 weapons of manipulation of large masses of people ranging from the least effective to the most effective and destructive. It is a roadmap and a crash course in enslavement of millions and maintaining a strict dictatorial control. It invites you to travel through the centuries and develop a methodological view of the events around ourselves and their subsequent interpretation.

Werte Musikmenschen! Ein Weihnachtsalbum – ernsthaft? Noch dazu mit Songs von Abba, Madonna, Robbie Williams und anderen Untoten?
Es wird Fans geben, die die BLOODSUCKING ZOMBIES FROM OUTER SPACE für diese Idee verfluchen. Gläubige Geister, die derlei als antireligiöse Verunglimpfung empfinden. Und die Zeilenschinder-Riege in den noch nicht verblichenen Musikmedien möchten wir uns beim Öffnen des Überraschungspakets erst gar nicht vorstellen. Aber, Herrgott!, habt ihr alle dem heiligen Ungeist des Rock’n’Roll schon komplett abgeschworen?
Eben. Hier liegt das Ding nun also auf dem Seziertisch. „Bloody Unholy Christmas“. Oder auch, für säkulare Gemüter, „X-Mas“. Eventuell auch „X-Mess“, wie’s die Urheber gern schreiben. Die heißen Dead Gein (Gesang, Steh-Schlagzeug), Mr. Evilize (Gitarre, Gesang), The Reverend Bloodbath (Gitarre, Keyboard, Gesang) und Dr. Schreck (Kontrabass). Man kennt sie weithin als Blutsaugende Untote aus den Weiten des Alls. Amtlicherweise aber auch als Horrorpunk- und Psychobilly-Band aus Wien, die alle Genre- und sonstigen Grenzen längst gesprengt hat. Als Etikett für ihren enormen Output verwendet die Band selbst „Horrorbilly“, 2015 gewann sie gar einen "Amadeus" Award in der Kategorie Rock & Metal ("Hard'n'Heavy").
Man sollte jedenfalls nicht den Fehler machen, diese Genres zu unterschätzen: auf Facebook z.B. halten die BZFOS aktuell bei knapp 35.000 Fans, Tourneen führten sie quasi schon durch die ganze Welt (zuletzt waren sie in Deutschland, Dänemark und Frankreich unterwegs), die Tonträger sind begehrte Sammlerstücke und Konzert-Mitbringsel. 2004 erschien das Debütalbum "See You At Disneyland", Fachzeitschriften und Experten loben seither das Quartett in höchsten Tönen. Kooperationen mit diversen Labels und artverwandten Bands (u.a. Thee Flanders, The Peacocks) und sehr reges Touring haben die BZFOS längst zu Fixsternen in diesem dunklen Universum werden lassen. "Der Horrorpunk passt zu Wien wie die Axt ins Zombiehirn." (
Das Weihnachtsalbum ist aber alles andere als ein billiger Gag in Ehren ergrauter Zombies. Die Story beginnt vor mehr als zehn Jahren – als man rund um die obligatorische Halloween-Show die Idee gebar, einige Songs der legendären Formation Kiss in deren typischem Outfit und Make-Up zu spielen. Seltsamerweise gab es aber kein Booking für den 31. Oktober – weshalb man den Verkleidungs-Rummel kurzerhand auf einen Termin kurz vor Weihnachten verlegte. Dieses bizarre Szenario hat seither Tradition: alljährlich kamen andere Gruppen, Künstlerinnen und Künstler als Cover-Vorlagen für die Bloodsucking Zombies From Outer Space zum Handkuss. Das „Unholy X-Mess Jamboree“ wurde von Michael Jackson ebenso heimgesucht wie von Guns N’Roses... Die Fans hatten ihren Spaß daran. Und nicht nur die. Das Rätselraten, wer diesmal „dran glauben“ müsste, beherrschte die Stammtische, Jugendheime und Rockerbuden während der adventlichen Bastelstunden und Gebetskränzchen stadt-, ja landesweit.
Im Jahr des Herrn 2016 – also nach einem runden Dezennium – ist Schluss damit! Weil aber die Cover-Orgien der „Unholy X-Mess Jamborees“ ein unleugbarer Teil der Bandgeschichte sind, entschied man sich für den vorliegenden Tonträger: ein dauerhaftes Dokument gutmeinenden Grauens. Und holte sogar prominente Gäste ins Studio: Bela B. von den Ärzten ist dabei, Robbie Williams-Gitarrist Neil Taylor, Horrorpunk-Legende Argyle Goolsby, Mad Sin-Sänger Koefte deVille und Filmemacher und Songwriter James Balsamo sowie die Ex-Drahdiwaberl- & Falco-Band-Heroen Peter Vieweger und Thomas Rabitsch. Meine Herren! Verpackt wurde das Werk ihres Schaffens wie ein durchschnittlich-harmloses Weihnachtspaket für arglose Verwandte und Bekannte – nur die Blutspritzer auf dem Geschenkpapier irritieren. Freilich nur hypersensible Gemüter.
Merry XXX-Mas everybody! Den Bloodsucking Zombies From Outer Space könnte es solchermaßen glatt noch gelingen, die Mainstream-Untoten in punkto Aufmerksamkeit, Sex Appeal, Frömmigkeit, Business-Glamour und Verkaufszahlen hinter sich zu lassen.

Ein neues Release aus dem Hause Kernkraftritter Records für euch. Zum Wochenstart gibt es mit INQUIRING BLOOD und ihrem neuen Album „MORBID CREATION“ ein ordentliches Death-Metal-Brett. Das zweite Album der Hannoveraner erscheint am 16.12.2016. 
INQUIRING BLOOD gründeten sich im Jahr 2004 und legten 2005 ihre erste Demo „Fear“ in Eigenenergie vor. Auch im Anschluss waren die Death Metaller aus Hannover nicht untätig, sondern legten mit „Live at TTD Festival“ 2007 ein Live-Album nach. Produziert wurde dieses von Harris Johns. Ebenfalls 2007 folgte die EP „Raping the Silence“, die Herman Frank (Accept/Victory/MoonDoc) produzierte und dank des mächtig groovenden Todesstahls viel Lob nach sich zog. 2010 stand endlich das langersehnte Deübtalbum „Born in a Grave“ an, welches in den Szene-Medien gefeiert wurde, u.a. wurde die Band mit Szenegiganten wie Amon Amarth oder Cannibal Corpse verglichen.  
2015 wurde Kernkraftritter Records auf INQUIRING BLOOD aufmerksam und nahm die Band unter Vertrag. Im ersten Schritt sorgte das Label für eine weitreichende Erhältlichkeit von „Born in a Grave“. Die Band selbst allerdings war längst mit den Arbeiten am Nachfolger beschäftigt – welcher nun fertiggestellt ist! „Morbid Creation“ wurde im Kohlekeller Studio gemixt und gemastert und zeigt, dass die Death Metaller längst nichts an Groove und Wucht verloren haben.
 Ein brutales, schnörkelloses und heftig groovendes Album, das dem klassischen Death Metal die Treue geschworen hat. Hin und wieder blicken allerdings Einflüsse aus Black und Thrash Metal durch, die der Musik eine weitere Nuance hinzufügen und „Morbid Creation“ die letzte Durchschlagskraft verleihen. 
Seit ihrer Gründung wurden INQUIRING BLOOD für unzählige Shows gebucht, u.a. im Vorprogramm von BEHEMOTH, KATAKLYSM, ABORTED oder THE HAUNTED – ab sofort ist die Band bereit, mit neuem Material die Bühnen im In- und Ausland in Schutt und Asche zu legen.

Leute,  das kalte Wetter lässt euch frösteln? Keine Bange, gleich wird euch heiß, denn wir ,die PARTY SAN Crew , haben wieder neue Bands am Start. Mit gleich vier neuen Zugängen hoffen wir euren Geschmack zu treffen, bevor es demnächst noch stärker weitergeht. Bleibt gespannt.
Sie sind seit 27 Jahren (!!!) aktiv und somit die wichtigste Konstante im schwedischen Black Metal. MARDUK haben es im Laufe ihrer Geschichte immer wieder geschafft, neue Extreme auszuloten und Grenzen zu verschieben. Kriegsgräuel, Tod, Verderben: MARDUK haben sich stets den düstersten Kapiteln der Menschheit verschrieben und unzählige Male den Soundtrack zum Untergang komponiert. Nach 13 Longplayern ist die Band noch längst nicht am Ende, sondern eine Bereicherung für die vitale Schwarzmetall-Szene. Die von Morgan Steinmeyer Hakansson in Norrköping gegründete Truppe war schon öfter Gast auf unserem Festival, und jedes Mal hinterließ sie Schutt und Asche.
20 Jahre lang wüteten die holländischen Death-Metaller auf den Bühnen dieser Welt und veröffentlichten überwiegend starke bis hervorragende Alben. Dann war plötzlich Schluss, die europäische Death-Metal-Szene verlor eine ihrer beliebtesten Bands. Umso schöner ist es, dass Szene-Urgestein Henri Sattler und seine Truppe nun wieder Blut geleckt haben! GOD DETHRONED werden eine Best-Of-Show hinlegen, die sich gewaschen hat und Songgranaten von bahnbrechenden Alben wie „Into The Lungs Of Hell“ und „The Toxic Touch“ prügeln!
Wenn sich musizierende Zeitgenossen allen Ernstes Organic Masturbator Of 1000 Splatter Whores nennen, dann kann man von zwei Dingen ausgehen:
1.    Es wird eklig.
2.    GUT spielen.
Also, liebe Geschmacksverirrte: Holt eure Abflusspömpel, toten Omas und aufblasbaren Gummipuppen unterm Bett hervor, zieht eure rosa Gummistiefel an und hampelt im Circle Pit! Hauptsache, ihr seid glücklich!
ULTHA aus Köln gehören im Moment zu den spannendsten Black Metal Bands aus deutschen Landen. Die bizarre Intensität dieser Herren ist einfach atemberaubend. ULTHA stehen für authentischen Black Metal, der in seiner Form freigeistig und fern aller Dogmen tönt. Seid gespannt, denn solche Bands sieht man nicht aller Tage.
Die Old School Thrash Metaller mit einem feinen Gespür für Hardcore-Einflüsse haben schon auf ihren ersten Alben gezeigt, dass sie ein Händchen für Headbang-Granaten haben. Jetzt steht Album Nummer drei an und „NO RESTRAIN“ schlägt in dieselbe Kerbe wie die Vorgänger und offenbart, dass TRAGIC CAUSE vor allem an den Feinheiten getüftelt haben.
TRAGIC CAUSE wurde 2009 von Alex Hoffman in Hamburg ins Leben gerufen. Der Start der Bandhistorie war von ersten Erfolgen gekrönt. Sowohl das Debütalbum „To Reign Supreme“ (2001) via Human To Dust Records/Twilight und das folgende 2012er Album „Dead Man Walking“ (Human To Dust/TWS) verschafften der Band erste lobenede Worte aus der Szene. So zeigte sich neben Thrash-Metal-Fans auch die Szenepresse begeistert und hervorragende Artikel zum Beispiel im Rock Hard und Legacy folgten. In dieser Zeit spielten TRAGIC CAUSE unzählige Shows und zeigten ihre große Live-Qualität unter anderem in Vorprogramm von Szenegrößen wie Sepultura, Disbelief, Onkel Tom und Cripper. 
Anschließend wurde es still um TRAGIC CAUSE. Bedingt durch mehrere Line-Up-Wechsel und den Umzug von Bandkopf Alex Hoffman in den Schwarzwald standen die Zeichen auf Veränderung. Neu an Bord sind inzwischen Drummer Tommy Hauser und Bassist Simon Schorp. Jetzt, drei Jahre später, meldet sich die Band in veränderter Formation endlich zurück und zeigt sich auf ihrem dritten Album „No Restraint“ hochmotiviert, den bereits eingeschlagenen Pfad auszuloten. Die Kombination aus Old-School-Thrash und Hardcore, gespickt mit brutalen Death-Metal-Elementen und einer drückenden Produktion ist ein Feuerwerk an Headbang-Garanten. Fans von Pro-Pain, alten Sepultura, Pantera, Madball, Slayer oder Jungle Rot werden die wütende wie intensive Mischung auf „No Restraint“ feiern. Seid ihr bereit für eine neue, turbulente Vollgasfahrt im „Schwarzwaldpanzer“? Dann anschnallen, Helm auf und Play drücken … because we will show no restraint – obey!
Die US Death-Metaller von ONCE HUMAN werden am 20. Januar 2017 ihr neues Album “EVOLUTION” über earMusic veröffentlichen. Während Once Human bereits 2015 mit ihrem Debüt The Life I Remember große Wellen schlugen, wird klar, dass Evolution nicht nur der Titel des neuen Albums, sondern eine knallharte Ansage ist. Die Band hat sich selbst alles abverlangt und das Resultat ist ein außergewöhnlicher Death Metal Sound, so komplex und emotional, mit fast niederschmetternder Härte, der eine Eindringlichkeit besitzt, die nicht zu verkennen ist.
„Ich habe mich auf das Aufnehmen und Produzieren von Bands konzentriert und die letzten zwölf Jahre die Gitarre nie aus Spaß in die Hand genommen, aber sobald ich anfing mit Lauren (Hart, Vocals) zu schreiben, habe ich mich in das verliebt, was wir gemacht haben und wollte wieder in einer Band spielen und auf der Bühne stehen“, sagt Logan Mader, der Metalheads nicht nur als Produzent für Bands wie Gojira, Fear Factory und Devildriver bekannt sein düfte, sondern auch als ursprünglicher Gitarristen von Machine Head sowie durch seinen Abstecher zu Soulfy in den späten 90ern.
Komplettiert wird das Line Up durch Schlagzeuger Dillon Trollope, Bassist Damien Rainaud und Gitarrist Skyler Howren sowie den Neuzugang Max Karon und schnell wird klar, dass die Band sich alles abverlangt hat um mit Evolution etwas abzuliefern, das heraussticht.
„Unser erstes Album hat den Ball ins Rollen gebracht, aber nun ist es fast so, als ob wir eine andere Band wären. Nun haben wir wirklich unseren eigenen Sound und unsere Identität gefunden, das ist ziemlich einzigartig und es geht wirklich ab.“

Eye Of Chaos
Mass Murder Frenzy

Rocker! "DEMOLITION DERBY" ist der passende Titel für den neuen Arschkicker der BAD BONES. Die Italiener rocken sich und uns nach wie vor den Allerwertesten ab.  Classic Rock in seiner pursten Form mit Einflüssen von ZZ Top über Van Halen bis hin zu Whitesnake.
Geile Riffs mit Feeling, schicke Hooks mit Langzeitwirkung und ein total sympathischer Sänger mit immensem Herzblut.
Die Kerle haben die europäische Festivallandschaft rauf und runter gespielt und waren außerdem u.a. mit Hardcore Superstar, Steel Panther, H.E.A.T., Chrome Division und Crucified Barbara unterwegs.

NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS SARKOM DEBUT TRACK FROM UPCOMING ALBUM FEATURING SHINING'S PETER HUSS  :  With the release of "ANTI COSMIC ART", the fourth full-length album from Norwegian Black Metallers SARKOM,  a month away, Dark Essence Records have today debuted a track from the album.
Titled "Mind-abscess", one of the track's features is a striking guitar interlude performed by three separate guitarists.  The first guitar part is performed by Thrawn, the second by  SHINING's Peter Huss, and the third by Galaaen.  
The track can be heard on  YouTube at  or on Bandcamp at
As well as Peter Huss, the seven-track album also features guest appearances from ALFAHANNE's Pehr Skjoldhammer, and guitar virtuosos Ronni Le Tekrø (TNT, ROQUEFIRE) and  former SARKOM member Sagstad (TROLLFEST).  
Set to hit the streets on the 2nd December, and with  artwork by Spectrvm Lvsitani, tracklisting for "Anti-Cosmic Art" is as follows:
1.Previous associates, now as targets for the gun
3.Ruiners of our family tree
4.Seen through the eyes of a paedophile priest
5.Come, dear cancer
6.Black metal necrophilia
7.Sodomy and lust (Sodom cover)
Originally intended to mark the band's tenth anniversary, but unavoidably delayed due to a series of personal and technical difficulties, "Anti-Cosmic Art" displays the versatility of the Norwegian veterans, ranging, as it does, from Old School Black Metal to more experimental tracks.  It is brutally catchy, largely guitar-driven, and the whole is imbued with the crushingly dark sound that SARKOM has made its own. 
To  mark the release of "Anti-Cosmic Art" SARKOM will play the following two Norwegian dates:
03 Dec:  Good Omens, Trondheim
17 Dec:  Revolver, Oslo  
"Anti-Cosmic Art", together with related merchandise, is now available to to pre-order from   and the US website at  in CD format , as well as at   where the album is also available digitally.
More information about SARKOM can be found on the band’s Facebook page at

The abomination named MÖK is back with a black metal crust punk infused mayhem, in it’s latest release KAMIKAZE SLUG. Defiitely a great choice for the thirsty, and fiting perfectly for both stag parties and funerals alike. It will be released in a limited 50x edition on Snake Oil Kassettforlag later this autumn. For the time being, it can be streamed or bought through the most used services in the digital realm.
The EP consists of 4 tracks, the last track being an reissue from the 2012 album Mökamorphosis. As always, the band draws heavily from the metal tradition, and especially the second wave black metal inflences are obvious. Newer Darkthrone and traces of Mayhem comes to mind. “As in all our releases, we have straight forward rock ’n roll attitude to what the music should sound and feel like. But now it is fircer, faster and with a heavier emphasis on a punchy groove.” That clearly pulls through on both song material and the production. Much of this drive can be tracked back to hardcore punk, and Swedish groups like Anti Cimex and Black Uniforms. These bands should be regarded as both sources of inspiration, and as proponents of the D-beat, widely used on Kamikaze Slug. Even though it is a DIY production from start to fiish, the sound of Kamikaze Slug is maybe more up to date than what you might expect, compared to the aesthetics of the idols.
“People have pointed out to us that even though it doesn’t necessarily sound old school, it certainly has an overarching old school vibe. This is something we never thought about, but which we think is perfectly true. It just stealthily crept into the songs without notice”.
Give it a listen!

SHAMBLES (Thailand) - 'REALM OF DARKNESS SHRINE'   :  Genre - Dark Death Metal  :  For fans of - Incantation, Grave Miasma, Goatlord, Blood Incantation, Morbid Angel, Ruin  :  Soon to be released on vinyl by Nero One Records which has put out the excellent Ruin album, Shambles are another fine revelation. Thailand isn't the kind of place where you would expect such filthy death metal to foster. And yet, here we have a stunning album that's well written and produced, with excellent imagery and intent. A veteran band, Shambles will have been around since exactly two decades in 2017, and 'Realm of Darkness Shrine' is their first ever full length album. The songs are reminiscent of 'Mortal Throne of Nazarene' era Incantation and other newer 'dark death metal' acts such as Blood Incantation, Necros Christos, Grave Miasma, Cruciamentum, etc. The sludgy music is interspersed with blasting moments a la Disembowelment, and the whole affair is murky, unsettling and dark as a starless night. Asian bands are rising to prominence, from newer countries that too, and Shambles are one among them.  
Album Line-up:
Chainarong Meeprasert - Vocals
Thinnarat Poungmanee - Drums
Issara Panyang - Guitars
Thotsaphon Ayusuk - Bass
Track list:
1.    Rosarium    
2.    Call from the Further Tomb     
3.    Breath of the Deathprayer

After three years of wait, INFERNAL ANGELS' 4th full-length album "ARS GOETIA" is ready to be released on January 20th, 2017, and it offers a band at its apex.
With "Ars Goetia", their tribute to the Kings Of Hell, they come back on My Kingdom Music for their most obscure and intransigent album, a Black Death Metal vortex, a must for all fans of Dark Funeral, Belphegor, Mor Dagor, Mgla.
Here are the cover realised by band's guitarist Apsychos and the official tracklist:
1. Amdusias: The Sound Of Hell
2. Vine: Destroyer Of The World
3. Asmoday: The Impure Archangel
4. Purson: Matter And Spirit
5. Bael: The Fire Devour Their Flesh
6. Paimon: The Secret Of Mind
7. Balam: Under Light And Torment
8. Zagan: The Alchemist
9. Belial: The Deceiver
10. Beleth: Lord Of Chaos And Spirals
Special guests of the album will be 3 great characters of the Italian scene, Mancan from ECNEPHIAS, Lorenzo Sassi from FROSTMOON ECLIPSE and Snarl from BLACK FAITH who give to some songs new obscure facets and atmospheres.
SEPULCHRAL CURSE (Finland) - 'AT THE ONSET OF EXTINCTION'   :  Genre - Blackened Death Metal  :  For fans of - Tribulation, Solothus, Bolzer, Krypts, Corpsessed, Lantern, Dissection, Cemetery Winds  :  Finnish death metal group with members of Solothus have decided to take a step ahead, leaving behind their old school death metal past but not entirely. Sepulchral Curse have weaned on the Scandinavian black metal influences and merged it with their irrepressible Finnish brand of death metal, forging a sound that's steely and unique. Reminiscent of early Convulse, Tribulation, Bolzer, Dissection, Dawn, Naglfar, Demigod and Putrevore all rolled into one, the music is extremely refreshing in its scope, majestic in its drive and lethal in its execution. While old school revivalists are dime a dozen, here's one daring to do something different using the time-tested DNA of Finnish death metal without compromising on the heaviness. Classic-tinged, immaculate, and progressive.
Track list: 
1. Envisioned in Scars 
2. In Purifying Essence 
3. Gospel of Bones 
4. Disrupting Lights of Extinction

REVELATIONS OF RAIN (Russia) - 'AKRASIA'  :  Genre - Atmospheric Doom Metal  :  For fans of - Doom:VS, Skepticism, Officium Triste, Mythological Cold Towers, Tyranny, Shape of Despair  :  Solitude Productions has established a terrific name for itself as being one of the most consistent and quality-focused labels for doom metal music. Every release is expected to be top-notch, and the latest one by the Russian atmospheric doom band Revelations of Rain is no different. It cements the sound of melancholic doom entities such as My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, Officium Triste, Doom:VS, Skepticism and Tyranny and elaborates upon it by weaving together fragile and elegant melodies. This is death/doom of the highest order, painstakingly written and passionately expressed. Everything is near perfect, if this is the kind of music you're in - deep, atmospheric and powerful. It's the perfect album to listen to as winter comes close.

CEREBRAL FIX (UK) - 'DISASTER OF REALITY'   :  Genre - Thrash Metal/Crossover  :  For fans of - D.R.I., Anthrax, Discharge, Nuclear Assault, Stormtroopers of Death, Cryptic Slaughter  :  24 years after the release of their last album, Cerebral Fix from UK release their comeback album this year on Xtreem Music. Even as a new listener, there's tons of old school appeal and flavour, which is lacking in most of today's bands. Reminiscent of their early material and bands like Discharge, S.O.D., Anthrax, Cryptic Slaughter and D.R.I., this has that unmistakable raw aggression with a punkish attitude. Nothing really has been 'updated' lest the sound and identity of the band gets ruined, and that's what makes it work. Albums like these rarely emerge in this era, and this is not only a great comeback album from a legendary band, but a very solid album in its own right for the style in particular. Must have.

1. Justify 
2. Mosh Injury

BARBARIAN SWORDS (Spain) - 'WORMS'  :  Genre - Black/Doom Metal  :  Barbarian Swords have bravely merged black metal with doom metal and the result is astounding. There's the palpable malice of the former with the paced out crawl of the latter - it's the best of both worlds and it doesn't happen too often with these styles. To make things better, there's a war-like imagery, ferocious onslaughts alternated with ponderous stompings. For fans of Celtic Frost, Triptykon, Hooded Menace, Xasthur, Swampcult, Cianide and Bolt Thrower, this is as unique as it can get. Cimmerian Shade Recordings have found yet another winner. 
Line up: 
Von Päx - Vocals
Voice of Noise - Guitar
Steamroller - Guitars
Panzer - Bass
Joe Beltza – Drums
Track list: 
1. I'm Your Demise
2. Outcast Warlords
3. Pure Demonology
4. Christian Worms
5. Total Nihilism
6. The Last Virgin on the Earth, Sodomized

SEPUTUS (US) - 'MAN DOES NOT GIVE'  :  Genre - Blackened Tech Death Metal  :  For fans of - Pyrrhon, Dendritic Arbor, Gorguts, Ion Dissonance, Portal  :  A stunning new project by the members of the well-acclaimed US band Pyrrhon, Seputus take the already twisted template and bombard it with new influences such as of black metal, grindcore and noise, to give it an inhuman edge. Bizarre, wicked and downright outrageous in parts, the music is elegantly broken down, deliberately fragmented, and then carefully and with a devious mind concocted by melding the existing parts with new ones and built together with a vision that was previously thought impossible. Titled 'Man Does Not Give', the album is a dark, twisted reflection of our thoughts, the jumbled up purpose of our existence. It's an excursion into bold territories, new soundscapes and fearsome expression emanating from the darkest recesses of the mind. The music is fiercely individualistic yet portraying a chilling similarity to life all around us in this era. 
Album Line-up:
Steve Schwegler - Guitars/Programming/Drums
Doug Moore - Vocals

AZOOMA (Iran) - 'THE ACT OF EYE'  :  Genre - Death Metal  :  For fans of - Death, Hour of Penance, Nile, Ade, Gorguts, Necrophagist, Opeth  :  Iranian death metal stalwarts Azooma return with a new album, their debut full length, after shocking everyone with their incredibly well-received EP titled 'A Hymn of the Vicious Monster'. The new album has taken things even further, showcasing superior songwriting and masterful execution. There's a special quality to their semi-technical structuring which remains intriguing even after a few listens. Musically, it's comparable to bands like Opeth (mid-period), Disincarnate, Gorguts, Nile, Ade, Hour of Penance and more, but Azooma strive to develop a sound of their own rather than directly emulating any of their death metal peers. To that extent, they succeed remarkably well. Azooma's death metal doesn't abandon the roots and yet does something progressive and adds its own flavour to it
Track list: 
1. Act 1: Plague of Predator 
2. Act 2: Umbra of Mirth 
3. Act 3: The Ocular Dominance
4. Act 4: Erosion of Shadows 
5. Act 5: Non-Entity of Visions
6. Act 6: Flare of Flames 
7. Act 7: Objectivity of Oblivion
8. Act 8: The Eyes - A Tale of Sight and Shadows

The UK thrash masters have signed a new deal with UKEM Records, to release the first brand new SOLITARY studio album in more than eight years. UKEM are a label fast establishing themselves as major players in the underground scene, with a hunger to succeed that matches Solitary’s own. With this fiercely driven partnership in place and an album to promote that takes British thrash metal to new heights, 2017 should be an exciting year for both band and label.
Asked about the signing with UKEM, Solitary’s front man Rich Sherrington had this to say:
“We are all very proud of the songs on this album and how it sounds. Working with producer Simon Efemey gave us a renewed belief in what we could achieve, so it was essential that we signed to a label with the same level of enthusiasm and with UKEM we have found the perfect match. Having been on UK labels previously we were keen for that to continue. 2017 is shaping up to be mega for us! Having the album come out in time for us playing at Hammerfest and then returning to London with Acid Reign is perfect. Hopefully there will be more to come after that as well, but having UKEM join our existing team of metal brothers can only mean that more people will get to hear and experience our metal.”
Details of the new Solitary album will be emerging soon, but today you can feast your eyes on the new video for ferocious single ‘Unidentified’. The video has been created by Andy Pilkington of
  Very Metal Art , who has also recently worked with Flotsam And Jetsam, and like the song itself it pulls no punches.
The ‘Unidentified’ single is available to download now from Solitary
 Bandcamp page  as well as all usual digital download platforms.
The album will be released in the Spring, in time for Solitary’s appearance at Hammerfest and their London show with Acid Reign, with many more shows to follow.
Arkadius Antonik (SuidAkra, Fall Of Carthage) and artwork artist Kris Verwimp (Marduk, Manegarm, Thyrfing, Arkona) will release their sophomore album "SECOND AGE" via MDD Records in December. The album includes 18 tracks with a running time of 44 minutes and tells the story of the second age of Odoric.
Due to the study and completion of Arkadius at the Audiocaution Academy, the compositions are much more mature than ever before. For the first time in the history of this project, the recordings had the participation of many guest musicians from all over the world. From today on, you can watch and listen to the opening track "Odoric Overture“, performed by the Brandenburg State Orchestra, on Youtube.
Today also marks the beginning of the pre-orders for an incredible package, which will only be available until December 24th. In addition to the CD Audio, this contains an 80 page book in A4 with great illustrations by Kris Verwimp. It also features a 28x28cm aluminium plate with high quality print of the cover design, 8 beer coasters with a two-sided design, a notepad with score design and an exclusive online access to additional material such as download content of videos, a making off and more.
An overview of the origin of the recordings, various graphic designs, work sketches and more can be seen on the Facebook page of the project.

FETID ZOMBIE (US) - 'EPICEDIA' :  Genre - Occult Death Metal  : For fans of - The Chasm, Macabra, Nocturnus, Incantation, Deceased, Entombed, Master, Horrendous  :  Mark Riddick is a legend in the underground. His works are in existence since the early '90s and so is his passion for occult-tinged old school death metal. After putting out a handful of releases and numerous splits, he has unleashed his masterpiece upon us. The album 'Epicedia' features a unique collaboration with some of the most esteemed musicians from around the world. It is epic in every sense of the term. Reminiscent of bands like The Chasm, Nocturnus, Grave, Deceased, Master and Sepultura, it's a mix of all styles, a blend of outstanding elements from each one of them but presented in a fetid sound bearing his trademark vocals. Each song is close to 10 minutes long - four monoliths in all - each showcasing a progressive elaboration of death metal that is raw and decaying at its core. All put together, Fetid Zombie concoct festering death metal with an otherworldly aura, replete with fantastic solos and memorable song structures, one that is refreshing and atmospheric in its own special way.

LEBENSSUCHT releases Brand New Music Video (NSFW) for the track ‘Beloved Depression’. Lebenssucht are a Dark/ Depressive Black Metal band with members based in Germany/ Bulgaria/ Belgium. The band recently released their music video for the track ‘Beloved Depression’ taken from their EP- Fucking My Knife that released via Abstruse Eerie Radiance on July 9th. The band has members from Humanitas Error Est, Yhdarl, Maladie, Absolutus and one from ex- Enthroned, ex-Necroblaspheme.
The band’s front woman S Caedes says, “Well, feelings have no concept, feelings just happen to you. And this is what the song is made of; pain, despair and the need to drown in this sticky darkness. To be able to enjoy, even when it hurts. This is our absolute.”

Thanks again, Harsha Vardhan  Proximity Productions   (Band Management/ PR/ Booking Agent/Promoter) 
The band credited with being Portland's first-ever death metal act is set to release its long-anticipated first full-length LP of new material. Ahead of Monday's release of DEAD CONSPIRACY's self-titled vinyl, the band has tapped Decibel Magazine to stream the album in its entirety.  
This nine-track offering of ferocity is now playing  HERE.
Dead Conspiracy will be available through the band on vinyl and digital formats. Exile Music will release the album on cassette. CDs featuring the 1987 demo and a cover track recorded for Tribute To Headhunter Death Cult will be available in Brazil by Funeral Rites Records.  
The follow-up to the band's critically-acclaimed 2014 Abomination Underground, the self-titled album is an utterly destructive, dark, depraved, and disgustingly satisfying piece of death metal that fans of Death, Gruesome, Sodom, Massacre and all the old gods will surely appreciate.
This is beyond old school - this is fucking original!
Formed in 1986, DEAD CONSPIRACY was a pioneering influence on multitudes of blackened death thrash metal bands worldwide. A series of demo tapes followed before the band sunk into the shadows in the early-90s. In 2006 Hells Headbangers Records contacted members of DEAD CONSPIRACY in 2006 with the idea of releasing a compilation of the band's demos. The result was the 19-track Gore Drenched Legacy, complete with a booklet full of liner notes, photos, lyrics and concert fliers. The deal with Hells Headbangers awakened the beast and DEAD CONSPIRACY returned with a new lineup at 2012's Goregon Massacre Festival III.
With the addition of Mike Abominator formerly of Gravehill on vocals and new drummer Eric A DEAD CONSPIRACY are sounding more brutal than ever!
"DEAD CONSPIRACY was one of the world's first death metal bands. We were seriously surprised at how heavy and driving and intricate the material was, well advanced back in the day; before it's time. Fucking glad it's finally getting out there!" - Mitch Harris (Napalm Death)
"If you like old school, brutal, pounding death metal then you MUST check out DEAD CONSPIRACY! You'll be headbanging so violently that your neck will never forgive you!" - Richard Christy (Death, Charred Walls of the Damned, The Howard Stern Show)
THE CURSED TRAVAILS OF THE DEMETER from Irish Death Metal Quintet VIRCOLAC is out now on Dark Descent Records. Visit the link that follows to streaming the entire EP:
The 26-minute EP is a journey through different horrors adrift the cursed vessel, The Demeter. The ship, for those of you with a literary interest, is that in which Dracula sails from the east to England, whereupon he spreads plague and death. The symbolism and concept is allegorical, as are many of the lyrical concepts throughout the EP. As Bram Stoker and indeed Sheridan le Fanu before him were both from Dublin and whose works are literary masterpieces have both found new life in The Cursed Travails of the Demeter. This has also been the case with the ancient tradition of shamanic ritual and rites that were practiced on the ancient plains of Ireland an represented by the magnificent stone carvings and rock art on display at Loughcrew, Knowth, Dowth and Newgrange. Furthermore, the viciousness of Caesar Caligula's reign and the allure of the witches beyond the woods all form part of the lyrical emphasis on the EP.
So, for now, we bid you welcome on board this cursed ship and join our voyage into damnation.
The Cursed Travails of the Demeter was released by Dark Descent Records in North America and on Sepulchral Voice in Europe (with LP to follow). Order the CD from Dark Descent at
this location.
Track Listing:
1. The Cursed Travails of the Demeter
2. Charonic Journey (Stygian Revelation)
3. Lascivious Cruelty
4. Betwixt the Devil and Witches
VIRCOLAC came into being in Dublin, Ireland during the dying embers of 2013 with the intention of creating a timeless take on Death Metal replete with actual songs, riffs and atmosphere, removed in its own right from some of the contemporaneous styles within Death Metal that almost sought to unwrite what the essence of a song is.
Steeped firmly in the 80s and subsequent early 90s Death Metal scenes, influences are wide and varied but never used as a barometer for reference but rather as parts of the whole that have obsessed the band's collective minds from a young age and now present in the newest endeavour, The Cursed Travails of the Demeter EP. So, for now, we bid you welcome on board this cursed ship and join our voyage into damnation.

SUFFER YOURSELF (Poland) - 'ECTOPLASM'  :  Genre - Atmospheric Doom Metal  :  Cimmerian Shade Recordings presents another stellar release, this time by Suffer Yourself from Poland playing captivating doom metal. This is instantly reminiscent of great bands like Catacombs (US), Hierophant, Skepticism, Thergothon, Dusk and even Disembowelment. The music is doleful, having a coarse quality and yet remains magnificent in its expression. Supremely atmospheric, it immediately transports you to a bleak and desolated area, where you find yourself reflecting upon the hopelessness of humanity. It also acts as a strange salve with its inherent melodies, a reminder of beauty against the backdrop of futility. The more you listen to this, the more you get sucked in. Proceed with caution.

NEWSLETTER DUNKELHEIT PRUDUCTIONEN NOVEMBER 2016  : DÉMONOS ist eine aufstrebende Black Metal/Avantgarde Band und wurzelt tief in den spirituellen Ursprüngen seines Herkunftslandes Indien. Das uralte esoterische Wissen aus dem Okkulten, der Natur und den theologischen Einflüssen des Landes fließen zusammen, um in DÉMONOS eine dunkle Musik zu erschaffen, die nur wenige Vergleiche zulässt. Dämonen und Geister werden in zeremonieller Weise beschworen, dem Hohepriester Démonos Obscurís zur Seite zu eilen. Und sie kommen zahlreich.
Das erste Demo dieser kommenden Größe, „FROM SACRED TO PROFANE“, wird nun von Dunkelheit Produktionen auf Tape aufgelegt. Es enthält unwiderstehlichen Black Metal mit massig wummerndem Bass, der sich mal mit Anleihen von Ritual Rock, mal mit grantiger Raserei zu krönen versteht. Abseits jeder Modernität bietet DÉMONOS eine ureigene Idee von beseelter Schwärze, deren Manifest dieses Demo ist. Diese Hymnen der Transzendenz sind vielleicht am besten beschrieben mit einer Mischung aus der heißen Stickigkeit und den Abgründen von DEFUNTOS, die Misanthropie und Zivilisationsmüdigkeit von LIFELOVER und der okkulten Intensität und klassischen Massivität von PESTs „Dauðafærð“.
Limitiert auf 100 dunkelgraue Kassetten mit silbernem Druck.
1. From Sacred to Profane 04:56
2. A Clarity of Indignation 06:27
3. Nibirum Solstitium {Surge Daemon} 04:54
4. Aeonian Purification - I 05:55
Total 22:12
Dunkelheit Produktionen präsentiert das sehnlich erwartete zweite Album der Niederländer von LASTER: „ONS VRIJE FATUM“. Bereits 2014 veröffentlichte Dunkelheit Produktionen LASTERs Debutalbum, „De verste verte is hier“, und es wurde binnen kürzester Zeit als ein visionäres Werk des modernen Black Metal verstanden, das zu gleichen Teilen grimmig wie großartig und wunderschön ist. Hier auf  „Ons vrije fatum“ orientiert sich das niederländische Trio hin zu einer noch kühneren Vision, und maximiert den emotionalen Einschlag des epischen Vorgängeralbums, indem es einerseits die enthaltenen Stücke in Intensität und Dichte noch stärker konzentriert, andererseits aber eine noch offenere Reichweite atmosphärische Möglichkeiten erkundet. Es ist ein Album geworden, das mit einer erschütternden Härte explodiert, insbesondere im Bereich der Vocals, nur um später alle Schichten im weiteren Verlauf der Spielzeit vorsichtig wieder zusammenzuführen; während dieser Dauer werden noch weitere, mysteriösere Schichten hinzugefügt. Seine Gewalttätigkeit und der konstante Sturm und Drang sind tief verankert im Black Metal, doch LASTERs unfassbar ambitionierte Herangehensweise ist stetig auf dem Weg in diejenigen Umgebungen von Seele und Geist, die konventioneller- und passenderweise nicht Black Metal genannt werden.
Auf diesen Pfaden der Erkundung und der Heiterkeit sendet „Ons vrije fatum“ eine Welle voll herbstlicher, beinahe-barocker Schönheit nach der anderen; die Spannung, stets anwachsend und oft ein hysterisches und verletztes Gefühl von Verlust bedeckend, wird plötzlich mit schwindelerregendem Rauschen voll von verschlungen verschachtelten Gitarren und brütendem Bass entfesselt, nur um anschließend wieder aufgebaut und in unendlicher Weise neu erkundet zu werden. Im Gegensatz zum epischen ausschweifen von „De verste verte is hier“ bewegen sich LASTER an der Langeweile des übertriebenen Ausreizens vorbei, wobei sie jedoch vorsichtig ehrfurchtgebietende Konstrukte erschaffen, indem sie nur zarte Berührungspunkte setzen – die auch mit subtilen Eingaben elektronischer Einflüsse oder gar Saxophon erweitert werden.
Über die gesamte Spieldauer weist „Ons vrije fatum“ eine Produktion und einen Schwung auf, die gemeinsam spielerisch das Grobe und das Feine balancieren, geerdet im Dreck, doch mit offenen Augen für den Sonnenaufgang an allen bekannten Horizonten. Mit ästhetischen Verbindungen zu AGALLOCH, STRID und frühen ULVER versehen wird man in diesem Jahr keine ähnlich erschütternde emotionale Achterbahn geben, wie LASTERs „Ons vrije fatum“.

Macht euch bereit für die volle Breitseite aus Ostasien auf einer einzigen Split-LP: „DUSTHALL DESECRATORS (LIVE PENANG)“! Dieses Live-Ritual wurde am 6. Februar 2015 in Penang (Malaysia) aufgenommen. Die asiatische Speerspitze im Black/Death Metal, IMPIETY, und die aufstrebenden Kriegstreiber von INFERNAL EXEKRATOR formen diese unheilige Allianz!
Dunkelheit Produktionen möchte dieses einmalig intensive und festgehaltene Ritual der Welt nicht vorenthalten und legt nun einen offiziellen Konzertmitschnitt vor, der aufgrund seiner Intensität Verehrer des Genres zu überzeugen weiß! Für Fans von BLASPHEMY, ANGELCORPSE und BLACK WITCHERY. In einer Auflage von 300 Exemplaren als Picture-Vinyl Ausführung erscheint nun dieses einzigartig festgehaltene Ritual.
Unfortunately we cannot guarantee a sold out status on the release date due the strict limited press of 300 copies. We highly recommend you to pre-order your personal copy.
The first time and exclusively on vinyl edition after 18 years! The malaysian cult Black Metal band NEBIRAS release their 1998 EP under exclusive licence to Dunkelheit on a limited edition of 500 heavy vinyl, coming with gatefold 350 gsm jacket and A2 poster. Additional the side b will include a silkscreen print of occult majesty.
Die geplante Veröffentlichung des Albums fällt nicht zufällig auf den Weihnachtsabend 2016: Dunkelheit Produktionen präsentiert dann das sehnlich erwartete zweite Album der Deutschen Truppe GOATBLOOD, „VENERATION OF ARMAGEDDON“. In den letzten fünf Jahren hat dieses mit Ketten und Munition behangene Duo sehr aktiv den Metal-Untergrund mit ihrem angriffslustigen Stil bestialischen Black/Death Metals verschmutzt. Eine Handvoll Demos und eine Split wurden vor dem ersten, folgenschweren GOATBLOOD-Album, „Adoration of Blasphemy and War“ (2015), ausgekotzt. Völlig angemessen betitelt erhob „Adoration of Blasphemy and War“ die Band nachhaltig in die internationale Aufmerksamkeit, und bewies, dass neue, raue Veränderungen am rigorosen Vorbild des bestialischen Metal immer noch möglich sind. 
Wie auch immer, mit ein paar darauffolgenden Splits ist nun die Zeit reif für das zweite GOATBLOOD-Album, das ebenfalls passend mit „Veneration of Armageddon“ betitelt wurde. Wo „Adoration of Blasphemy and War“ bereits an die Grenzen ging und den (un)willigen Zuhörer bestrafte, geht „Veneration of Armageddon“ mit einem barbarischen Grinsen noch einen Schritt weiter. Über 18 Tracks in etwas mehr als 36 kurzweiligen Minuten explodieren GOATBLOOD mit ihrer pulsierenden, ekelhaften Wildheit, von der es keine Atempause gibt, direkt ins Gesicht. Das Album ist klamm und widerlich, mit der Stimmung eines Kerkers voller Meuchler, und peitscht so den Zuhörer in eine höllische, halluzinogene Trance. Und doch, so unbarmherzig all diese Songs auch sind, behält „Veneration of Armageddon“ eine einzigartige, stets schwer fassbare Verfänglichkeit. GOATBLOOD neigen hier so viel zu aufkeimendem Grindcore wie frühen BLOOD, EXTREME NOISE TERROR und DOOM, wie auch zu Einflüssen von BLASPHEMY, BEHERIT und ARCHGOAT. 
Mit anderen Worten: Alles, womit „Adoration of Blasphemy and War“ sich bei den treuen Diehardern beliebt machte, wird auf „Veneration of Armageddon“ zu weiteren Extremen angehoben – und darüber gleichzeitig extrem gut erfassbar. Entweiht die Geburt des landsteichenden Bastards mit „Veneration of Armageddon“! (Text von Nathan Birk)

DOOMED (Germany) – “ ANNA “      :  Genre - Atmospheric Death/Doom Metal  :  For fans of - Tyranny, The Fog, Shape of Despair, Worship, Mournful Congregation, Coffins  :  Doomed from Germany are among the finest bands to dole out meaningful death/doom music, always progressing with each album to interject varied influences but only to increase the scope of their music palette. One man army Pierre Laube conjures up his most personal album yet, a concept one called 'Anna'. The music is ever so palpable, emotive and stirring in ways only a few albums can ever hope to be. With a plethora of guest appearances from members of Hail of Bullets, The 11th Hour, Camel of Doom and others, the album is rich and diverse in content, tracing a concept that few of us dare to empathize with - political and religious fanaticism. Too much is taken for granted, for others to fight, but to personally fathom the severe negative repercussions of conflicts emanating from fanaticism is sometimes too hard for most to relate to. Explore 'Anna', a near-topical album, brimming with soulful emotions and epiphanies, one of the best albums to come out this year. 
Album lineup:
Pierre Laube - Instruments, Vocals, Lyrics, Programming, Concepts & Artwork, Production
Track list:
1. Your Highness The Chaos 08:49
2. Anna 03:59
3. As The Thoughts Began To Be Tarnish 06:57

Chine anno 2015 is completed by bass player Tommy Erichson, guitar virtuoso Jokke Petterson and extreme singer Ola Svensson, whom the band contacted after discovering his incredible talent in the art of screaming. Chine has recently released their latest album 'IMMANENT' and is sounding better than ever.

NORWEGIAN VIKING METALLERS HELHEIM COMPLETE WORK ON NEW ALBUM &  POST STILLS FROM UPCOMING VIDEO :  Norwegian Viking Metallers HELHEIM have completed work on what will be the band's ninth full-length album, which is set for release on Dark Essence Records in January 2017.  In the run-up to the release of the album, which will be titled " landawarijaR", the band will be releasing two videos of tracks from the album, the first of which will appear in November.
Whilst no information about the album is available yet, HELHEIM have confirmed that the tracks being used for the videos are 'Ymr' and 'Baklengs mot intet', two songs which, as the band  explained " are neatly intertwined into a dualism that will be portrayed visually  by Guilherme Henriques, who is both producing and directing the videos".  
As a little taste of what fans can expect from the videos, HELHEIM have published a series of stills from the video shoot by the photographer Mathis Backe of Yggdrasil Photo ( ), and these can be seen on the band's Facebook page at
Bergen-based HELHEIM not only has the distinction of being one on Norway's oldest Viking bands, it is also one of the bands that has always been  true to its Norse heritage.  The band's lineup of Vgandr on bass and vocals, Hgrimnir on rhythm guitar and vocals, Noralf on rhythm and lead guitar and Hrymr on drums and programming,  incorporates the local myths and folklore into the subject matter of the band's songs, and frequently make use of traditional instruments.  HELHEIM's live performances use special effects that emphasize and enhance the themes that wind their way through the band's music .  More information about HELHEIM can be found on the band's website at or on Facebook at
The official video of the track “Dualitet og Ulver” which features a guest appearance from TAAKE’s Hoest, from HELHEIM’s ”Heiðindómr ok mótgangr” album can be seen at
Nine tracks covering 20 years of HELHEIM’s history can be heard on the band’s SoundCloud page at
SEEDNA (Sweden) - 'FORLORN'   :  Genre - Atmospheric Black Metal  :  Seedna from Sweden are changing the perception of the black metal genre. They've crafted a beautiful full length album that's intuitively tempered with harsh as well as soothing moments, taking influences from outside the genre but blending it in flawlessly. The 'hourglass' on the cover symbolizes the continuation of life after death; the album is strangely nostalgic yet refreshing, as if we're getting back memories of a past birth. There's the familiarity of the black metal genre but a tingling sense of freshness to it, which makes you want to experience it to the fullest, live life all over again. The album, with its well-timed alternating interludes, only embraces you completely, as you begin to lose track of time and reality. This one shatters the binding norms and creates music that elevates the soul to new realms. Almost akin to a spiritual journey, 'Forlorn' is full of revelations, as you go unprepared but expecting perchance a life-redeeming experience, one that will bring you closer to the attainment of nirvana.

Olle: Vocals and Ritual Instruments

QUEEN ELEPHANTINE (Hong Kong/US) –  “ KALA”  :  Genre - Doom Metal  :  For fans of - Hyponic, Sleep, Kyuss, Eyehategod, Om  :  Queen Elephantine, the exotic-flavoured doom/ambient band once operating out of Hong Kong (who have since moved to New York), are back with a brand new full length called Kala. They've always kept innovating and the new album is even more entrancing, atmospheric and mind-bending. They've honed their skills to offer music that's near unparalleled - the delicate cacophony of the numerous instruments (spaced out, never overcrowding), the suspenseful atmosphere, the ever-lingering sense of intrigue, it's all there, and better than ever before. Kala taps into your subconscious, creates swirling colourful patterns, a hypnotic effect that doesn't wear off easily like a rare non-harmful drug. Succumb to the creeping, psychedelic madness that's Queen Elephantine.

NUISIBLE (France) - 'INTER FECES ET URINAM NASCIMUR'  :  Genre - Blackened Death/Crust  :  French crust heroes Nuisible put together another vicious onslaught that's a slap in the face of the skeptics. Their style is relentless, thrashy and laced with adrenaline. From start to finish, these maniacs whip up a frenzy, one that's superbly paced, bearing the right spirit and attitude, and remaining on top of things throughout. Described as a cross between the latter works of Darkthrone and crust/punk legends Tragedy, it's every bit as potent as you would imagine, and more. They add their own aggression and edge to the proceedings to make it relevant and sufficiently scathing. Simply put, this is for fans of good, energetic music, and anyone who can appreciate thrash/crossover, crust/grind or hardcore/punk, will lap this band up in no time.

Julien: Guitars, vocals

ABYSMAL GRIEF – “ REVEAL NOTHING “  :  Genre:  Horror Doom Metal  :  “This is where the living make a religion of respecting the dead. This is where the dead make a religion of preserving their lives”.
Purveyors of some of the finest and most cursed Doom Metal, Italy's own Abysmal Grief returns from the shady graveyard to celebrate their 20 years. TERROR FROM HELL is proud to release this luxurious relic containing: “Reveal Nothing...” CD with all the songs from their singles, splits and 7” , including one new unreleased track “Cursed Be The Rite”; the “Mors Te Audit” tape (the infamous second demotape, originally released on a limited edition of 13 pieces, presented with the same cover and layout); metal pin with Abysmal Grief sigil; exclusive poster; t-shirt exclusively designed for this release … and cemetery soil. All these doomed hymns and devotional items are housed in a wooden box strictly limited to 100 pieces. A lugubrious journey from the band's earlier steps into the misty sepulchre in late 90s until 2012. Those who already owns the original items released back then and those who doesn't will be both pleased with such release, which celebrate twenty years of Occult Italian Sound.
Join the ride, the hearse to Borgo Pass begins its dreadful journey at the stroke of midnight.

News von NOIZGATE und DEAFGROUND RECORDS :   Es wird schon wieder dunkel! Glücklicherweise liefern wir hier gleich einen kleinen Lichtblick in Form von neuer Musik und vielversprechenden Livegigs. So kennt man uns, damit sind wir nie geizig. Es ist ja auch schön Freude zuteilen. Teilen macht ja auch fast alles schöner. Bis auf vielleicht Schnupfen. Wenn man den teilt, macht man sich ganz schnell unbeliebt. Also bevor man seine Umwelt mit Schnupfen belästigt, lieber zu Hause gute Musik hören. Wenn man dann wieder gesund ist, kann man seinen Freunden davon erzählen und seine Erfahrungen teilen. Sieh‘ an, das Leben ist ein Kreis.
UGF – drei Buchstaben wie Faustschläge in den Magen. Das Quartett aus Ober­österreich bereichter jetzt die Deafground-Famile mit einem rohen, brachia­len Sound, der trotzdem nie eingängige Riffs und Melodien vermissen lässt, die sich sofort in die Gehörgänge fressen.  Irgendwo im Gemenge zwischen Groove Metal, Sludge und Hardcore haben sich UGF ihren ganz eigenen Sound gezimmert. Das bedeutet bodenständige Musik, bei der der Song zu jeder Zeit im Vordergrund steht. Die Markenzeichen der Band sind ein fetter Sound und der direkte Kontakt zu ihren Fans. UGF riffen ohne Gnade nach vorne, lassen in ihren Songs aber auch immer wieder Raum für atmosphärische Zwischenteile. In der aktuellen Besetzung grooven die vier seit 2015 durch den Underground. Doch das wird sich jetzt ändern!
Denn mit ihrem zweiten Langspieler “Asebeia.Atara­xis.” (VÖ 25.11.2016, Deafground Records) haben UGF ein verdammt heißes Eisen im Feuer, mit dem sie sich das Quartett ohne Zweifel in die erste Liga prügeln wird! Hammerharte Riffs in Verbindung mit brutalen Growls lassen hier keinen Stein auf dem anderen! Die Produktion der Platte nahm Sänger und Bandkopf Lu­kas Haidinger selbst in die Hand. Der hat die perfekt aufeinander eingespielte Band gekonnt in Szene gesetzt. Jeder Anschlag, jede Note sitzt genau da, wo sie zu sein hat. UGF behalten bei allem was sie tun die volle Kontrolle, um ihre musikalische Vision umzusetzen. Der Vierer geht keine Kompromisse ein! Das heißt keine ausufernden, selbstdarstellerischen Soli oder wabernden Synthie- Teppiche, die von den treibenden Grooves ablenken. Somit ist “Asebeia.Atara­xis.” eine mächtige Schlachtplatte, die sich Fans harter Klänge nicht entgehen lassen sollten!
Mit großen Schritten näheren wir uns THE DI­SASTER AREA. Am 11.11.2016 ist es endlich soweit und man kann im Plattenladen seine Seele verkaufen. Das Debütalbum „SELL YOUR SOUL“ der fünf Bayern liefert saf­tige Gitarrenriffs, knallende Break­downs und wahn­sinnige Shouts kombinieren sich mit einem dringen­den Groove und bit­tersüßen Melodien.
Unglaublich schön und jetzt schon vor­bestellbar bei Ama­zon.

FACE OF OBLIVION's roots were laid by Hensley and Brandon writing songs on guitar, then Ogar and Matt Preston (Fetus Heist) came into the band and the brutality got ratcheted up a few notches. Unfortunately shit happened and Matt decided to part ways with the band. But luckily the guys were able to rebound by quickly convincing James Lee (ex-ORIGIN) to take over duties on the mic and lyrics. The band finally got Cole Gunther (What Lies Within, ex-Bodies in Wake) throwing down on the 6 string bass, completing the line-up. FACE OF OBLIVION signed to Comatose Music and then released debut album The Embers of Man in 2011.
In 2015 the group made the extremely difficult decision to part ways with vocalist James Lee. While this unfortunately closes a great chapter in the band's history, great things are on the horizon, including the upcoming release of Cataclysmic Desolation.

Pestilence released seven full length albums over the years including milestones such as ‘Consuming Impulse’, ‘Spheres’ and their debut album ‘Maleus Malefaricum’.
Presence of the Pest, Live at Dynamo’  features the cult performance of PESTILENCE at the famous DYNAMO open Air in 1992. Bonus to the album are 7 tracks from the tour Pestilence did with Monstrosity and Torchure the same year, recorded in Rotterdam (3 of them in this promo).

Exoto was formed in 1989 and released its first demo in 1991 (and it was immediately voted as 'Demo of the month’ in the Dutch Aardschok / Metal Hammer magazine). The second demo was released in 1992 and 2 songs ended up on an 7’’ e.p. The band grew and played with bands like Morbid Angel, Malevolent Creation, Benediction, Grave, Gorefest and many others. By the end of 1993, the band recorded its debut CD ‘Carnival of Souls’. Exoto also played at one of the first editions of Graspop (GMM). A new record deal with Swedish Black Mark records was signed in 1994. The second full length “A Thousand Dreams Ago” was worldwide released in 1995. ‘And Then You Die – Fifth Reason’ is the official and first cd release of the two Exoto cult demos. Bonus to the album are 5 live tracks, recorded in the early 90’s.
Pentacle is one of the oldest, and still active Dutch death metal bands. Formed by bassist / vocalist Wannes Gubbels (ex Asphyx / Soulburn) in 1989 and still touring, playing gigs and recording and releasing old school death metal.
‘Ancient Death’ was recorded and mixed at Harrow Productions, The Netherlands (Asphyx, Grand Supreme Blood Court, Soulburn) in 2000. This vic records ‘Ancient Death’ re-issue has a special bonus track from the same sessions named ‘Soul’s Blood’.

Dutch death metal band Perpetual Demise was founded back in 1989. In the early nineties the band recorded three demo's which received very positive reviews from national and international press. Thanks to these demo's the band got the opportunity to perform with well-known bands like Gorefest and The Gathering  . One of the highlights in the career of Perpetual Demise was their performance on the campsite of the famous Dutch open air festival ‘Pinkpop’ in May 1994.
Their debut CD named "Arctic" was released by cult Dutch label DSFA Records (Gorefest, Orphanage, Within Temptation) in 1996. The album was produced by Roel Toering who is famous for his work with Dutch bands like Vandenberg, The Trockener Kecks and Vitesse. This re-release contains 17 track in total (including 6 bonus tracks from their demos) and is completely remastered.

MOURNING BELOVETH TO PERFORM SPECIAL SET AT DUTCH DOOM DAYS AND EXPLAIN THEIR LOVE AFFAIR WITH THE BAROEG VENUE . Irish Doomsters MOURNING BELOVETH will perform a special set in the Netherlands on Saturday 29th October when they make what will be their third appearance at Dutch Doom Days at the Baroeg, Rotterdam.  And their reasons for doing so?  Quite simple really - not only does MOURNING BELOVETH have a considerable following in the Netherlands, but they are also huge fans of the Rotterdam venue. Plus the football of course!  As the band explains:
"This will be our third Dutch Doom Days appearance and one we are really looking forward to. We first played Baroeg in 2003 when on the Doomination of Europe Tour with MORGION and THE PROPHECY,  and this is what started  our love affair with the place.   So much so that even if we are not playing at Dutch Doom Days or making a stop there during a tour,  we have also become die-hard Rotterdam Hooligans - the Irish Branch.
"We have had many legendary nights at Baroeg, mainly when the gigs were over;  from 4am Doom sing-along's to Feyenoord Gabba songs.  We were even asked by our Dutch friends at Baroeg to contribute to the letter from the venue to the Dutch Government for funding assistance, something that was a real honour for us.  And naturally with Feyenoord  5 points clear at the top of the Eredivise, and a home game next weekend we might even get some good football on Sunday morning".
So what exactly does MOURNING BELOVETH have in store for the fans and the venue on Saturday:
"The most important thing of course is the music, and we are due to headline the Saturday night and we have decided to do something special.  We will play Nick Cave's "The Weeping Song"  and this will be only  third time that we perform it live.  We  know this is a favourite amongst our Dutch friends, and the last time we played it on stage also happened to be at the Baroeg.   Unfortunately due to the gremlins that had taken up residence in our equipment, or maybe it was in our heads, we were not satisfied with the performance that time.   We're happy to say that rehearsals are going well, and if anyone knows the words they are more than welcome to help us out and sing along with us.
"We will also be playing an acoustic version of "A Terrible Beauty is Born", with the original video playing behind us.   It will be the first time we have played anything acoustically outside of rehearsals or the recording studio,  and we hope everyone will enjoy it.  For those who don't know the song, the lyrics are taken from WB Yeats poem "Easter 1916" which is about Ireland's fight for freedom and the changing attitudes of many people who witnessed the ultimate sacrifice made by so many men and women who laid down their lives for a free Ireland.  But the words of the poem could resonate in any country in the world where people have fought for freedom since the beginning of time,  and the video reflects this.
"See ye in the dark corners...."
The  video of "A Terrible Beauty is Born" that will be used at Dutch Doom Days, it was created by the band and  John Mulvaney and originally released on the 24th April 2016 - the day that marked the Centenary of the Easter  Uprising.  Since its release there have been more than a few who have questioned what Yeats would have thought of his words being interpreted by a metal band, and some who questioned what the band's motivation was for writing the song.   So,  earlier this year the band released an unscripted video where they explained  what lies behind the track, the recording process, how such a different sound came about, and what it might lead to in the future.  Titled "A Terrible Interview Is Born", the video can be seen at
The original version of "A Terrible Beauty is Born" was released in black and white, since some of the footage used was from the era of pre-colour photography.  Having taken another look at it, the band felt that the colour version gave a slightly different perspective, and went on to release that version as well for comparison.   The black and white version can be seen at   and the colour version at
Formed in 1992 and with six full-length albums and a plethora of compilations and splits under their belts, MOURNING BELOVETH are based in the market town of Athy, in County Kildare.  The band's  lineup is composed of Darren Moore on Vocals,  Frank Brennan on Guitars and Backing Vocals,  Pauric Gallagher on Guitars, Brendan Roche on Bass and Tim Johnson on Drums.

NORDWITCH (Ukraine) - 'MORK PROFETI'   : Genre - Death Metal  :  For fans of - Arch Enemy, Grace Disgraced, Sepultura, Master, Sinister, Death  :  NordWitch from Ukraine play vicious death metal with black and thrash influences. The rough quality hearkens back to the old school death metal greats around the early '90s but the execution is way faster and the outlook is different. It's the best of both worlds. There's no compromise made anywhere. 'Mork Profeti' is the band's debut and it's a varied album full of surprises. To find such a proficient death metal album these days is rare, and to top things off, they have a female growler who's doing a fantastic job with the enunciating - she's doing it with extra malice and has got variations of her own as well. Overall, this is a tight unit with detailed structures and set a very brisk pace to keep things interesting throughout.

Mexico's Chaos Records has released a new song from forthcoming album Visions from Beyond by Russian Death Metal Band OLD CHAPEL. Stream opening track "Disastrous Rite" at this location.
OLD CHAPEL will release VISIONS FROM BEYOND November 7 on Chaos Records. Another new song, "Stairs to the Vault," is streaming at
OLD CHAPEL is an orthodox sepulchral squad spreading the infection of old school doomed death metal since 2010 under the leadership of Sergei Karpukhin (drums) and Pavel Suslov (vocals). Based in the central Russian city of Ivanovo, OLD CHAPEL is already known in the underground with two unholy releases - Tales from the Churchyard and Symptoms of Possession. 
Now after several years of silence, the Chapel opens the gates again to unleash all the demonic creatures dwelling and waiting inside. Inspired by old horror movies and witching rites, the band is ready to tell nine chilling stories of horror, decay and possession. Meet the new full-length album from OLD CHAPEL: Visions from Beyond.
Recorded in the crypts of Ivanovo and mastered by Enormous Door (Austin, TX), Visions from Beyond shows a new level of anger and despair in comparison with previous releases by this Russian band. 
So take a step into the OLD CHAPEL......but beware of visions that can drive you insane
In addition, one of the songs from the album is also going to be released (with alternative mixing and mastering) on a unique compilation of Russian old school death metal called Faces of Death, along with songs by PYRE, GROND, CIST and others. The album will be available in Mexico via Craneo Negro Records.
BLACK METALLERS ENEPSIGOS REVEAL ARTWORK AND DETAILS OF UPCOMING ALBUM : Formed earlier this year by V.I.T.H.R, otherwise known as Doedsadmiral, the mysterious Norwegian artist behind bands such as NORDJEVEL, SVARTELDER and DOEDSVANGR, and quickly signed by Drakkar Productions, Black Metallers ENEPSIGOS have revealed details of their debut-full length album "Plague of Plagues", which is expected to hit the streets in January.
Guitars, Bass and Vocals for "Plague of Plagues"  were recorded at Velvet Recording, in Spydeberg, Norway, with engineer Christer Krohg,  whilst the drums were recorded at the Beastcave Studios in Italy.  The eight track album was mixed and mastered by Tore Stjerna at the Necromorbus Studios in Stockholm, Sweden.
With  artwork by Vincent Fouquet and Above Chaos, tracklisting  for "Plague of Plagues" is as follows:
1.Plague Of Plagues
2. Råtne Engler
3. Pagan Rites
4. The Cold Bones
5. Manifestvm
6. Massedrapssalmer
7. Ghoul
8. Askenatt
With his almost uncanny skill to draw together musicians from some of the best known Black and Extreme metal bands on the scene, frontman V.I.T.H.R has once again put together an interesting lineup.  This time he has harnessed the talents of Straff (ex SARKOM) on guitars and bass, and Italian drummer Thorns, known for his work with BLUT AUS NORD, DEATHROW, FIDES INVERSA, FROSTMOON ECLISPE and DARVAZA, to name but a few. 
Together the trio have created an album that is dark and brutal and with a marked ritualistic atmosphere.   The traditions of early Black Metal are still alive and well in the music of ENEPSIGOS as can be heard from the recently debuted track "Manifestvm" at

Sick, plodding tunes that are reminiscent of bands like Hellhammer, Winter, (early) Cianide, The Fog (Germany), Decomposed, Candlemass, (very early) Asphyx, and Paradise Lost permeate the record. Like a funeral procession through the crypts, each track goes on for more than 10 dreadful minutes. There's something morbid about the whole ritual, something brooding and evil. The soul languishes within the catacombs of Uncoffined. There's no hope for an afterlife in this cursed place - the dead will make sure of it.
Track list: 
1.    The Horrors of Highgate         
2.    Plague of the Uncoffined         
3.    Ceremonies of Morbidity

DOOMCULT - "END ALL LIFE"  :  Genre:  Doom-metal  :  Doomcult is a band situated in the south of the Netherlands. The present recording, end all life, is a gathering of songs which together make a concept album about, well, the end of life. Parts of the songs date many years back, other parts and all arrangements date to 2014. The music of doomcult was to some extent inspired by the Peaceville three (Paradise Lost, Anathema and My Dying Bride), but also by many non-doom bands, like Urfaust. Lyrically, doomcult tries to stay away from the common themes of desperation and despair, building on a story about collusion, which offers the opportunity to add some more aggressive and misanthropic themes. With respect to the vocals, doomcult doesn’t use grunts, nor traditional clean vocals. In stead, doomcult uses harsh screaming and some growls. By doing so, doomcult intended to add some new thoughts to the genre. In total seven songs were recorded to make up the afore mentioned concept album. In May 2016 the album was made available by Morbid Syndicate and doomcult appeared on compilations by Utraje magazine (Portugal) and Basted Zine (France).  Underground music for underground people.

VERMIN WOMB: American Blackened Deathgrind Butchers About to Release Most Violent Album of the Year - Tracks Streaming at Stereogum, CVLT Nation, Invisible Oranges & More. San Francisco Bay Area darkness-obsessed DIY indie label Sentient Ruin Laboratories is extremely proud and honored to announce the release of DECLINE, the monstrous debut album by Colorado-based blackened death-grind heathens Vermin Womb.
Vermin Womb are one of the most antagonist, hostile, and nihilistic extreme metal acts to have ever ravaged the North American extreme metal underground. Rising in Denver, CO from the ashes of local blackened grind/sludge band Clinging To The Tress of A Forest Fire, Vermin Womb have been conceived by CTTTOAFF vocalist/guitarist Ethan Lee McCarthy (now also/mainly vocals/guitar in Primitive Man) and CTTTOAFF bassist Zach Harlan, to be a continuation of their past collaboration and as a cathartic conduit for their most tormented and unconceivable nightmares.
To achieve their sonic hell on earth Vermin Womb have chosen the weapons of grindcore, black and death metal and have fused them together in a bestial arsenal of auditive sonic weaponry that shall stand as one of the most inverted, wrong, and morally (and physically) unacceptable and unbearable manifestations of musical horror ever put to tape. Essentially an absolute  must for all fans of similarly abhorrent manifestations of total sonic chaos and depravity as seen from bands like Revenge, Knelt Rote, Portal, Adversarial, Pissgrave, Watchmaker, Full of Hell etc. If you liked our last releases by Altarage, Wake, VRTRA and Unyielding Love, then you will be pleasantly surprised to find yet another addition to the growing list of the most heavy and violent releases we’ve ever been involved with.
CVLT Nation have called Decline a "thick wall of hate" - stream and feature  HERE
Invisible Oranges has stated that Decline is “a brilliant example of how to get past extremity creep in modern metal" - stream and feature  HERE
Stereogum has stated that Decline is “nasty, forceful stuff”, and that you will get "stomped the fuck out by its absurd heaviness” - stream and feature  HERE
Transcending Obscurity has labelled Deline as “INHUMAN” - stream and feature  HERE
Check out the Decline album trailer  HERE.
Decline will be released on tape by Sentient Ruin in collaboration with

The release of “Underlight” marks a new collaboration between the band and Costin Chioreanu from Twilight13Media. The artist managed to perfectly capture the essence of the new album by creating the perfect artwork for it.

Norway's Dark Essence Records have added another string to their rapidly growing bow by inking a deal with Norwegian veterans ATROX, and are set to release the band's fifth full length album "MONOCLE" on a date as yet to be announced.
Commenting on joining Dark Essence's roster, and giving fans an insight into what they should expect from the result of ATROX's return to the studio after  an eight year break, the band had this to say:
"It's finally happening, the moment we all have been waiting for, the moment when all the hard work finally pays off... We're proud to announce that we have joined forces with Dark Essence Records, and together we will release our next album "Monocle".
"Monocle" is our darkest album so far. During the process of creating and recording it we explored, and were exposed to, our darker selves, and what we encountered during this process almost killed us.  It left us in a dystopian vacuum and all worn out, but with one hell of a piece of music to present to the world.
"Musically speaking "Monocle" contains poisons that'll blind you, and poisons that'll open your eyes.
As William Gibson says in his novel  "Neuromancer“: "The future is already here. It’s just unevenly distributed.”
Formed in Trondheim, Norway, in  1988 the band was originally called Suffocation, but for obvious reasons the name was changed to ATROX in 1990.  Having spent their first years playing an atmospheric mix of Death and Doom Metal, recording demos and honing their live skills, ATROX's first release was the 1996 7" "Silence of Echoes",  which was followed by a further four full length albums and numerous live appearances including several tours and festivals.   
Today's lineup of Rune Folgerø on Vocals,  viNd on Guitars, Rune Sørgård on Guitars & Technology, Tor Arne Helgesen on Drums and Erik Paulsen on Bass plays what they like to call "Schizo" Metal, which differs from their original sound, being more melodic and with an experimental/avant-garde edge. More information about ATROX can be found on the band's website at   or on Facebook at
The time-lapse video of Finnmark and North Troms (Norway),  photographed and edited by Randulf Valle, and using ATROX's  Den Store Hvite Stillhet / The Great White Silence as a soundtrack can be seen at
COLOSSO (Portugal) - 'OBNOXIOUS'  :  Genre - Experimental Death Metal  :  For fans of - Cynic, Gorguts, Portal, Meshuggah, Nocturnus, Cattle Decapitation, Blood Red Throne  :  Colosso from Portugal emerge with their latest. Playing death metal with a new vision, their sound is breaking the shackles of the style, as Colosso innovate and involve elements dissonant and industrial. While most bands use the black metal template, Colosso merge the abstract sounds into a coherent death metal template, one that seethes and squirms with shades of darkness. A mesmerizing epic, 'Obnoxious' is an immersive album from start to finish, remaining unpredictable yet consistently superior. It will go down as one of the most daring and ambitious albums in the style this year - a vision so profound and brilliantly executed is bound to change the perception death metal has. Colosso remain proudly indulgent, self-sufficient and confident of their new sound.

New England Industrial Metal Duo INVERTIA will release new album THE BIDDINGS OF TYRANTS on December 9. Following 2014's sophomore tour de force Another Scheme of the Wicked (Ohm Resistance), the forthcoming self-release sees INVERTIA taking its oppressive industrial metal to harsh new heights. 
Stream new song "Dystopia," featuring drummer Aaron Rossi (MINISTRY, PRONG), at
The Biddings of Tyrants still retains the INVERTIA sound of industrial black metal with added elements of death metal and hardcore punk.  The album as a whole, musically and lyrically, focuses on the world around us and its effect on the human psyche.  However, each song is a different Bidding from a different Tyrant.
Produced by INVERTIA, The Biddings of Tyrants again features the multi-talented tandem of Dave Coppola (vocals, guitars, bass, FX, samples) and Tim Winson (drum programming, synth, mixing/mastering). The album also features the drumming of Aaron Rossi (MINISTRY, PRONG) and Kevin Talley (SUFFOCATION, DYING FETUS, SIX FEET UNDER); the former performing on "Dystopiate," "Non-Sunni," and "The Forever Incision," and the latter on "Scatter" and "Not for Taste."
INVERTIA is influenced by many styles of music and many artists, including MINISTRY, ABORYM, MAYHEM, IMMORTAL, GODFLESH, and SKINNY PUPPY, as well as WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS and GEORGE CARLIN.
Track Listing:
1. Another Big Brother
2. Dystopiate
3. Non-Sunni
4. Fleshless In Real Time
5. Thetan Hop

Fueled by all manner of disreputable horror flicks and morbid metal bands, Echoes of Dismemberment is the death metal album of your worst nightmares. Around every corner and under every bed lurks a bloodthirsty madman with a rusty hunting knife, and you are now his prey.

GRAUSIG (Indonesia) - 'DI BELAKANG GARIS MUSUH'   :  Genre - Brutal Technical Death Metal  :  For fans of - Jasad, Disgorge, Cattle Decapitation, Aborted, Gorgasm, Suffocation   :  Formed in 1989 (!), Grausig have released several albums over the years including a debut in 1994, but remain unheralded despite being around for so long and more importantly, going stronger than ever before. Their latest album stands head-to-head with some of the best US death metal bands of this ilk, and they've done everything right. Inspired arguably by Suffocation, their music is gnarly, cutting-edge and superbly executed. Laden with infinite hooks, buildups and great breakdowns, the band doesn't waste time on simplistic chugs or slams but delves into technical part of things without diminishing the favoured brutality. 'De Belakang Garis Musub' may very well be one of the best Indonesian death metal albums to come out this year. It's time they transcend the perceptions, and like Jasad, make an indelible mark around the world with their music.

The album title, WyrdWeorc, an old English version of WyrdWork, that is a ritual aimed at intervening in wyrd, a Scandinavian concept similar to "fate" but not exactly the same, in order to alter it so that the target person's or persons' fate is affected. Everything one does in his or her life is conditioned by wyrd and at the same time changes wyrd. This means the album itself was predicted by wyrd and is to change somehow personal wyrd of every human involved or inwoven. Including the listener. Meanwhile the whole work preceding and following the album production has had a certain influence on Drauggard members' lives.
Line UP:
Dmitry Ulybin - vocals/guitars
Lorenz Lechner - drums
Yury Korotovskikh - bass
Drauggard is a Russian-Austrian black metal trinity with numerous shows done in the lands of Europe, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus with band so MARDUK (SWE), BELPHEGOR (AUT), ROTTING CHRIST (GRC), RAGNAROK (NOR) etc. Formed in 2003 in the city of Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, the band has been patiently progressing towards its own style that is a premium blend of various genres of metal with a considerable portion of Black Metal music in the main, both lyrically and musically. The metaphoric lyrics of Drauggard refers to old norse heathenry considered relevant today like never before.
Draugr (singular) or Draugar (plural) is an Icelandic word for an undead entity that is haunting back from time to time afterlife to accomplish what it could not complete during its lifetime. An obsessive apparition of various shapes. Dead thoughts. Stillborn dreams. The Sun... the shadow... the hunger... the winter... the End and the Beginning. The eturnal return. Immer werden.

NORDJEVEL, whose self-titled debut album released at the start of the year gleaned universal praise from fans and critics alike, have revealed a new video for a track from the album. The name of the track, "Djevelen I Nord", which features TROLL's Nagash on guest vocals, means "Devil in the North", and the video is a visualisation of the theme of the song.  Directed by Marcin Halerz of Red Pig Productions "Djevelen I Nord" can be seen on YouTube at
NORDJEVEL, which translated means "Northern Devil", was founded by frontman Doedsadmiral and guitarist Nord. Whilst Doedsadmiral (SVARTELDER, DOEDSVANGR, ENEPSIGOS) himself remains a shadowy figure, whose real identity has never been revealed, there is little doubt that the rest of the band have come with
 impressive pedigrees.  Nord himself can add FATAL IMPACT, TVANGESTE and BYRDI to his resume, whilst Sweden's Fredrik Widigs is known the world-over as MARDUK's drummer. The trio have since been joined by former RAGNAROK bassist DzeptiCunt, completing the lineup which has now become a cohesive, and impressive, force, both in, and out, of the studio.
The band will close the year with a show at the Aalborg Metal Festival in Denmark on the 12th November, and have so far been confirmed for various festivals in 2017 including Blastfest in Bergen, Norway, in February, Eradication Festival in the UK in April, and the Maryland Deathfest in May, which will be the band's first North American appearance.  
NORDJEVEL are currently working on their sophomore full-length album and more information about NORDJEVEL can be found on the band's website at  or on Facebook at

SOOTHSAYER (Ireland) - 'AT THIS GREAT DEPTH' MCD   :  Genre - Atmospheric Doom/Sludge   :  Soothsayer from Ireland return to unveil their sophomore album after putting out an incredible debut. The new masterpiece, 'At This Great Depth' sees the band plumbing new emotional depths, writing seamless gargantuan songs, and merging subtle myriad influences from a broad outlook on life to forge a cohesive, powerful sound unlike any other. This is atmospheric doom/sludge having a dreamy quality to it that stirs up buried memories by way of its strangely alluring riffing and unconventional songwriting. These two timeless monoliths, one 16 minute long and the other lasting for eight, are symbolic of both the suffering as well as the endless glimmers of hope flashing throughout them in life. Soothsayer's doom is emotive, vast and fulfilling.

Sweden's VANHELGA, whose music falls between Black Metal and DSBM, and who use deceptively melodic pieces to create disturbing scenarios,  are looking for partners to stream the debut of their new video  "Utan Mening",  the opening track from their latest album "Ode & Elegy" which was released on the 1st October on Talheim Records.
The song explores the endlessly repeating cycle of aridity that passes for life, and the video is directed by J. Ejnarsson.  It features A. Rohtsalu in the role of a depressed young woman slipping further and further into darkness and despair from which she is unable to escape, and is interspersed with video of the band. 
We would like to stream the debut of the video, through either one, or multiple partners, at around 16:00 CET on a day as yet to be decided.  A press release will be issued with links to all the sites streaming the debut.
In this email are stills from the video, and If you are interested please get in touch either by replying to this email or via and we will send a private link to where you can view the video.
VANHELGA describe "Ode & Elegy" and being an album in two parts:   " Ode" or "Old Diary Entries" is about the deteriorating mental state of a young woman, slipping further and further into depression and darkness. Her recorded voice is intertwined with the music.  "Elegy" is the continuation. It's about looking back and reflecting on those dark situations in life: the hopelessness, drugs, abuse, depression and death.  In summary, to understand and accept that life is without meaning".
Artwork for "Ode & Elegy" is by Gedeminas Kiauné of Manum Diaboli Art and the  whole album can be heard on Bandcamp at

ZORNHEYM  -  “A SILENT GOD”   Swedish extreme symphonic metallers ZORNHEYM  reveals their 2nd single, entitled “A Silent God”, it will be released through NON SERVIAM RECORDS on the 21th of October through all digital platforms.
The single and the forth-coming album have been recorded and mastered by Sverker Widgren, a renowned veteran of sound engineering on the Scandinavian extreme metal scene (October Tide, Demonical, IXXI, Diabolical) with cover art created by the wildly talented photographer and designer Jens Rydén (Marduk, Thyrfing).
The single is  also part of Zornheym’s concept that revolves around the horrors of a mental institution and its inmates. Each song also has its own comic strip drawn by the amazing artist
Anu Bring (Märvel, Evil-lÿn, Satan’s fall).
Symphonic Extreme Metal band based in Stockholm - founded and led by multi-instrumental mastermind and songwriter Zorn.
After parting ways with his former band Dark Funeral, he was determined to shake up the traditional Metal meets Symphony approach with his new band Zornheym.
Zornheym quickly grew from an ambitious idea into a dramatic musical and cinematic narrative revolving around the horrors of a mental institution and its prisoners.
Inspiration drawn from icons such as Dissection, Dimmu Borgir and King Diamond is paired with real string orchestration and a powerful full choir. Every song on the debut album will have a visual accompaniment in the form of short graphic stories with further exploration of the themes as short films in place of the standard approach to music videos.
The line-up is completed by Facebreaker's Bendler on vocals, guitarist and musical arranger Scucca, and Diabolical drummer Angst. The debut album has been recorded at Wing Studios by Sverker Widgren, renowned veteran of sound engineering on the Scandinavian extreme metal scene (October Tide, Demonical, IXXI, Diabolical)

FOURTH CIRCLE - ELEMENTS  Episch, Symphonisch, Modern! Album & Video VÖ! Alle guten Dinge sind drei? Weit gefehlt! Willkommen im FOURTH CIRCLE, wo epische Klänge auf harte Riffs treffen und die bezaubernde Stimme von Audrey Adornato die Ohren und Herzen ihrer Fans über die Dritte Dimension hinaus in die vierte trägt.
Die Mitglieder von FOURTH CIRCLE aus dem französischen Hayange haben seit der Gründung der Band im Jahre 2011 einen Stil entwickelt, der zwar immer den starken Einflüssen des Symphonic Metal treu geblieben ist, dabei aber nicht in den genre-spezifischen Grenzen verharrt, sondern den Blick über den Tellerrand wagt.
Das glorreiche neue Album von FOURTH CIRCLE, trägt den Namen „Elements“ und somit auch hier der magischen Zahl „Vier“ Rechnung, denn wo Feuer, Wasser, Luft und Erde zusammenspielen, entsteht eine völlig neue Welt der Klanggewalt. Wer aber versucht die Band auf einige numerologische Spielchen zu beschränken, tut den Newcomern aus Frankreich unrecht.
Es braucht mehr als vier Qualitäten, um souverän in die Fußstapfen von Bands wie NIGHTWISH, WITHIN TEMPTATION, EPICA und Co. zu treten. Liebe und Affinität zu symphonischen Klängen, Herzblut, Ideenreichtum und vieles mehr wäre zu nennen um ein solches Projekt zu bewältigen. Und doch gehen die 5 Musiker aus Frankreich genau diesen Weg unbeirrt und feuern hierbei eine ganze Salve aus 13 kraftvollen Tracks aus Gitarrenklängen und zugleich gänsehaut-schaffenden, orchestralen Elementen ab.
FOURTH CIRCLE reihen sich nahtlos in die Naturgewalten des Symphonic Metal ein. Wer sich also „Elements“ nicht entgehen lässt, der wird mit Sicherheit weitaus mehr als nur „vier“ Bereicherungen auf seiner Favoritenliste entdecken dürfen.

DUTCH DOOM DAYS (Netherlands) is an initiative taken by the members of the doom metal legends, OFFICIUM TRISTE, who're now signed to Transcending Obscurity Records. On behalf of Pim Blankenstein's here's a press release regarding this excellent festival taking place from Friday all through this weekend. Please spread the word around so this kind of beautiful music can foster.
Blankenstein adds: “We are proud to be able to present such a solid line-up again. Especially since it’s the 15th edition. We’ve had bands like SAINT VITUS, TROUBLE, EVOKEN or REVEREND BIZARRE at previous editions and it is hard to put together a great line-up. But we also feel it’s our task to give lesser known and upcoming talented bands a chance. I think we have always succeeded doing this and I’m sure we’ll be able to do the same in the years to come.”
On 2016’s Halloween weekend Dutch Doom Days returns with their 15th edition. This anniversary is celebrated in a proper way with some special shows.
On Friday October 28th Dutch avant-garde doom/death innovators PHLEBOTOMIZED will headline. This will be their last performance with guitarist and founding member Jordy Middelbosch. London’s EYE OF SOLITUDE will perform their latest album 'Cenotaph' in its entirety. FAAL will open proceedings with their brand of monstrous doom.
Saturday the 29th we seen France’s MONOLITHE as the night’s closing act. These guys have been around for ages but just recently decided to perform live too. This will be their first ever show in Holland. Main event for the evening is Ireland’s MOURNING BELOVETH. These guys will have some surprises in their set you don’t want to miss. Same goes for Holland’s OFFICIUM TRISTE who will play some songs you don’t hear that often. On Saturday you can also see superheavy Dutch band GGU:LL, the outstanding Italian bands BLACK OATH and RITI OCCULTI and the upcoming Dutch talents of TREURWILG.
Finland’s psychedelic rockers JESS AND THE ANCIENT ONES will headline, adding a bit of a twist to this doom-ridden weekend. They’re on tour with Norway’s SAHG who will proudly promote their latest album 'Memento Mori'. All the way from Brazil there’s MYTHOLOGICAL COLD TOWERS.
