SAVAGE ANNIHILATION – “ QUAND S'ABAISSE LA CROIX DU BLASPHEME “
FOR FANS OF
Morbid Angel, Internal Suffering, Krisium
OVERVIEW
Often mistakenly taken for the orthodox Death Metal band they can seem to sound like if not really paying attention to what they create, SAVAGE ANNIHILATION are a unique band pushing the envelope of their old-school influences to embark the listener into a world of their very own.
Lyrically, it’s gross. It’s crude. It’s raw. It’s dismembered and grotesque. Musically, it’s brutal. It’s heavy. It’s violent… but there’s far more than what the rotten eye can see: SAVAGE ANNIHILATION’s creations are all part of a global concept and it’s all about hopelessness and desperation.
Started fifteen years ago, the band took ten years to shape, define, re-define and re-shape their unique artistic approach and release their debut, “Cannibalisme, hérésie et autres sauvageries” (2012) and it took them five more years to come with the sequel, “Quand s’abaisse la croix du blasphème“, going even further into their post-apocalyptic visions of a world beyond doomed.
Following the path started with its predecessor, the new album is total nihilism, pure heresy and blasphemy, gore beyond gore ; savage, annihilating but it’s first and foremost an artistic, conceptual story where salvation doesn’t exist.
Fewer yet longer songs, all connected one to the other make “Quand s’abaisse la croix du blasphème” a tough listen, an oppressing experience and a challenge somehow, and when you think you will finally see the light at the end of the tunnel when you reach the last track of this nightmarish journey into gruesome horror (and few will be strong enough to survive such an unsustainable nauseating bad trip!), “Le tombeau de l’atrocité” featuring international opera singer Claire Motté again (she was already a guest on their debut), you’ll soon discover this beautiful moment of sublime grace is in fact the last spark of life into your eye before you die.
Welcome to your most fascinating nightmare.

HANZEL UND GRETYL has been an ever evolving band. Their 2014 offering, “Black Forest Metal”, marked a new era, employing black metal & satanic themes crossed with motifs from the Brothers Grimm fairy tale. Another dark step forward in the bands evolution, 2018’s “Satanik Germanik” is Hanzel und Gretyl's darkest, most metal release to date. More evil, menacing & fun than ever, while still 100% Hanzel Und Gretyl.

Nekrofolk act FURIA continue to refresh their discography with brand new vinyl reissues of their releases. The second round of reissues consists of two titles that will be made available on 1 August 2018 via Pagan Records. Pre-orders are available now via the record label’s webstore.
With this round of reissues, Furia’s mini-album “Płoń” (2009) will receive vinyl treatment for the first time ever, in addition to the band’s third album “Marzannie, Królowej Polski” (2012). Both will be released in two limited colour editions with special vinyl mastering and alternative artwork.  
Pre-order:
 https://bit.ly/2stYuvk
Established in Katowice, Poland in 2003, Furia are the godfathers of “Nekrofolk”. They are the most popular and prolific creation of the Let the World Burn collective. They took Polish black metal to entirely new regions with unique elements of folk and abstract poetic themes. Influenced by the dark beauty of their home province of Silesia, their music is spiced up with lyrics written by Nihil, who is one of the most gifted Polish artists of the decade. Following the release of their latest studio effort, “Księżyc milczy luty”, the band reached a new level with theatrical performances, entitled “Wesele”, at one of Europe's most acclaimed theatrical stages; a tour of Japan; and a headline tour of Poland. Furia have also performed at prestigious festivals such as Roadburn, Brutal Assault, Open’er Festival, Throne Fest, Off Festival, Primavera Sound, Castle Party and Motocultor. 2018 sees Furia take their live shows to even more stages in Europe.

Brazilian Heavy/Thrash/Death Metal band DROWNED have released the official video for "The Bitter Art of Detestation," the opening track on new album 7th. Get in on the action at the following link:  youtu.be/gZIH0e0p_YA
7th out now on Greyhaze Records, under license from Brazil's Cogumelo Records. The album is streaming in its entirety at  drownedmetal.bandcamp.com/album/7th
Purchase 7th:   store.greyhazerecords.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=516
The band's almost 20-year career is synthesized on the album's 11 tracks, which showcase a varied and unique style of Heavy Metal that recalls the different styles of bands like Amorphis, Nevermore, Anthrax and Bolt Thrower.
On 7th, which as the title implies is the band's seventh release, DROWNED seeks new horizons, while preserving and refining the band's most treasured musical essence of traditional Heavy Metal songs built into a Death/Thrash Metal twin-guitar attack! The musical onslaught serves as backdrop to lyrics that lay bare thoughts of sickened and deranged visions, injustice and gratuitous violence. In other words: notions that are unfortunately a reality of life in South America's biggest nation.

CONSECRATION – “REMEMBRANCE”
Genre: Doom/Death Metal
For fans of: Novembers Doom | Evoken | My Dying Bride
Current Line-up:
Daniel Bollans – Vocals
Shane Amies – Bass
Liam Houseago – Lead, Rhythm and Acoustic Guitars
Jordan Grant - Lead, Rhythm and Acoustic Guitars
Jorge Figueiredo- Drums and Percussion
Beneath the endless, foreboding skies of East Anglia, the region of England most steeped in tales of witchcraft and witch burnings, where the dark, empty fens stretch out to become the labyrinthine reed beds and marshes and eventually the cold North Sea comes a sound of desolate doom, aching emptiness, nightmare and shadows…
For the past eight years Consecration have been casting their eldritch spells, weaving words of forgotten wisdom and incantations of black imaginings through riffs of rot and decay, entwining oppressive atmosphere with beguiling melodies, encasing songs of sorrow in caskets of terror and bleak horror. From the malicious spite of their debut EP, Gut The Priest to the overwhelming sonic landscape of fear and shadows that is summoned up by their full length album Ephemerality, released through UKEM in the heart of winter 2014, this unique band have been building a formidable canon of work, a horde of gold and gems that has lain glittering in the caverns of the underground, treasured by the intrepid souls that have braved the descent into darkness to discover it.
As Consecration began to venture forth from their home territory, playing shows across the UK with the likes of Leafhound, Esoteric and Primitive Man, so the media began to take notice of their intoxicating blend of mournful magic and hellish visions from beyond the walls of sleep. Zero Tolerance Magazine, Metal Rules, Doomantia and more were captured by their insidious conjurations. The sound of Consecration could no longer remain hidden beneath the dank soil…
An alliance formed with Imperative PR, Consecration have decided to open the black covers of their grimoire, to invite one and all to taste the darkness of not only Gut The Priest and Ephemerality, but an array of secrets that have lain too long in the deep places. Here, under the title of Remembrance, you will find the first eight years of Consecration in their entirety, a digital compendium of their cursed litanies and lore - all fully remastered and restored to breathe a new life into the darkness. These are the hymns of heartbreak upon which a monolith will be built. These are the spirit-crushing sounds that will form the foundations of a legacy of mourning, an empire of tears. Beware, the future is bleak indeed…
Remembrance will be available exclusively at https://consecration666.bandcamp.com/ from June 29th
(Tracks 01-08 originally appeared on the Ephemerality album, released 2014, tracks 09-12 previously unreleased 2011 demo recordings, tracks 13-18 appeared in their original form on the 2010 EP Gut The Priest. All tracks restored and remastered for this compilation.)

WINTERMELODEI 2018

Die Headliner des diesjährigen Festivals sind die Briten von FEN!
Das Festival findet auf zwei Bühnen statt
Der gebührenfreie VVK startet am 01.08.2018
Zum Ende des Jahres steht für jeden Fan schwarzmetallischer Klänge noch ein besonderer Leckerbissen an. Am 08. Dezember veranstaltet Schwarzlicht Konzerte zum zweiten Mal das Wintermelodei. Der letztjährige Erfolg vor fast ausverkauftem Hause auf der Clubbühne der Sputnikhalle, gab Anlass dazu das kleine, aber feine Black Metal Festival zu wiederholen und das Line-Up in Qualität und Größe zu erweitern. So spielen dieses Jahr sechs Hochkaräter auf zwei Bühnen im Wechsel. Hier die bestätigten Bands
FEN (GB / Headliner), AU-DESSUS (LTU), FURIA (PL), CTULU (DE/PL), FIRTAN (DE), THE SPIRIT (DE),
Zudem wird der wettergeschützte Außenbereich mit einer Art „Black-Metal-Winter-Markt" im passendem Ambiente ausgebaut und soll trotz der vermeintlich kalten Jahreszeit einen weiteren Rückzugsort zum geselligen Miteinander bilden und mit Feuerglut und Dampfgetränk die winterlichen Bedürfnisse der Besucher versorgen.
Mit den britischen Black Metal Virtuosen von FEN wurde nun der diesjährige Headliner bekanntgegeben und macht das hiesige und sehr starke Line-Up für 2018 komplett. Der selbstorganisierte und gebührenfreie Vorverkauf startet am 01.08.2018. Umfangreiche Informationen hierzu folgen.

Metalheads! Keep politics out of metal?  Nein.  THE OUTSIDE sind eine internationale Band, mit Mitgliedern aus Chile, Israel und Deutschland.
Wir können nicht schweigen.
Musik ist das Produkt dessen, wo wir leben; was wir in unseren Ländern und anderswo sehen, hören und lesen.
Metal ist die Musik starker Standpunkte.
Unsere machen wir in neuer Besetzung auf "WE FEEL THROUGH THE DEAD" hörbar.
Viele Politiker und Lenker der Wirtschaft stellen sich gegen den Willen der Mehrheit nach Veränderung und mehr Gerechtigkeit.
Sie haben Angst davor, ihre geerbten Privilegien zu verlieren, die auf Ausbeutung anderer gründen. Unterstützung erhalten sie, weil sie Hass und Rassismus schüren - als vermeintliche Antwort auf die Ungleichheiten, die sie selbst durch ihre Vorstellung von Globalisierung deutlich sichtbar gemacht und verstärkt haben.
Sie profitieren, Radikale profitieren, Reiche profitieren.
Andere sterben bei Verteilungskriegen. Verhungern im Globalen Süden. Ertrinken auf der Flucht im Mittelmeer.
"We Feel Through the Dead" ist ein politisches Album.
Death und Thrash Metal gegen Elitismus und Populismus, gegen Grenzen und Ausbeutung, gegen religiösen Fanatismus.
Für eine gerechtere Welt.
Andere mögen sich durch neoliberale Ideen und rechte Positionen zum Schweigen bringen oder vor sich her treiben lassen.
The Outside nicht.

Werte Mitstreiter, CANINE aus Frankfurt stehen für durchdachten Wu(ch)tcore mit jeder Menge Aggro, aber auch einem Auge auf handwerklichen Details und smarten melodischen Finessen.  Vorschlaghammer mit Charme könnte man "BLEAK VISION" nennen.
Mit ihrem Mix aus Punk, Hardcore und Rock´n´Roll verleiht die Band ihrer Abneigung gegen die zunehmende Dekadenz in der Gesellschaft einen kompromisslosen Ausdruck.
Kompromisslos nach vorne, kompromisslos aggressiv.
Die Band lebt für ihre Konzerte.
Bis Mitte 2018 absolviert das Quintett knapp 100 Live-Shows.
Unter anderem unterstützt es dabei Bands wie ANGEL DUST (US), THE BOTS (US), GNARWOLVES (UK) und BLOOD YOUTH (UK).
Mit ihren Buddies von HYENAS und A SAVING WHISPER ging man 2017 auf ausgedehnte Tour.
Darauf folgten im selben Jahr zahlreiche Shows in ganz Deutschland.
Egal ob Club- oder Festival-Bühne, Autonomes Zentrum oder Kellerloch, CANINE liefern auf ihren Konzerten stets mit konstanter Energie.
GALLOWS, GHOST OF A THOUSAND, EVERY TIME I DIE oder CONVERGE dienen der Band als Inspiration bei der Bandgründung.
Nun liegt mit dem Debüt-Album "Bleak Vision" ein höchst eigenständiges Werk vor.
Aufgenommen in DIY-Fashion mit der Hilfe alter und neuer Freunde haben CANINE dabei einen druck- und zugleich eindrucksvollen Sound kreiert.
Für Mix und Master verantwortlich zeichnet sich DIMI CONIDAS, der auch schon mit illustren Künstlern wie THE TIDAL SLEEP, MATULA, CRO oder ANTWERP GIPSY SKA ORKESTRA zusammen gearbeitet hat.
Bereits 2017 sorgte das reichweitenstarke Portal Hardcore Worldwide für die Videopremiere von ´Serve The Wrong Ones´, einem Song, der auch auf dem Debüt-Album zu hören ist.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtGyoiXh-2E
Zu den beiden Singles ´Toxic´ und ´Bulletsucker´ wird die Band vor dem Erscheinen des Albums ebenfalls Videos veröffentlichen.
Eine ausgedehnte DIY-Tour durch Deutschland und Europa ist zur Album-VÖ geplant.

Werte Mitstreiter, CHTHONIC sind ein absolutes Phänomen.  Die Extrem-Metal-Band aus Taiwan ist auch hierzulande längst kein unbeschriebenes Blatt mehr, überrascht aber immer wieder von neuem.
Inhaltlich sind CHTHONIC von der taiwanischen Mythologie beeinflusst, integrieren viel traditionelle Musik und die entsprechenden Instrumente in ihren Metal-Sound und erschaffen so eine ganz eigene Mixtur, in der die "westlichen" Einflüsse (Symphonic Black Metal, Death Metal… nennt es einfach METAL) einer imposanten Frischzellenkur unterzogen werden.
CHTHONIC sind inzwischen auf den größten Metal-Festivals der Welt zu Hause und mehrfach durch Europa, Nord-Amerika und Asien getourt.
In Taiwan sind sie Charts-stürmende, mit der lokalen Grammy-Version, dem Golden Melody Award, ausgezeichnete Stars.
Und doch finden sie neben CHTHONIC immer wieder Zeit für andere Aufgaben.
Dabei ragen besonders Bandchefin / Bassistin Doris Yeh als Aktivistin für Frauenrechte, Schauspielerin und Festival-Kuratorin und Frontmann Freddy Lim heraus.
Lim sitzt seit 2016 im taiwanischen Parlament und hat als unermüdlicher Kämpfer für die Unabhängigkeit seiner Heimat weltweit für Aufsehen gesorgt.
Eindrucksvoll zu sehen ist das in der TV-Dokumentation "Metal Politics Taiwan", einer ZDF-Arte-Produktion, die Freddy auch am 20.07. in Hamburg und am 21.07. in Berlin persönlich vorstellen wird.
Wir würden uns freuen, wenn Ihr "Metal Politics Taiwan" genauso viel Aufmerksamkeit schenkt wie dem hiermit ebenfalls angekündigten neuen Album "THE BATTLEFIELD OF ASURA", das am 12.10. erscheinen wird.
"The Battlefield Of Asura" beschäftigt sich mit diversen taiwanischen Gottheiten (für Eingeweihte: auftauchen werden Má-tsóo, Ông-iâ-gong, Kuan-im (Avalokiteśvara), Tè-iâ gong, Thài-tsú-iâ (Nalakuvara) und Sîng-hông) und führt die Hörer auf eine ganz besondere Reise, die musikalisch gewohnt mitreißend inszeniert wird.
Episch, aggressiv, hoch-energisch, engagiert, auf internationalem Format und doch immer eigensinnig und durch und durch CHTHONIC.
Einen Trailer zu "Metal Politics Taiwan" findet Ihr hier: https://vimeo.com/209514055
Taiwanischer Rockstar geht in die Politik
Die Fans von Taiwans Heavy Metal Rockstar Freddy Lim rufen: „Freddy for President!“. Freddy kontert: Ihr denkt wohl, seit Trump kann jetzt jeder Präsident werden? Ja, vielleicht – in Taiwan. Immerhin hat Freddy Lim eine neue Partei gegründet und ist nur ein Jahr später Abgeordneter im Parlament Taiwans. Jetzt ist der tätowierte, langhaarige Rebell zuständig für Nationale Sicherheit und Auslandsbeziehungen. Der Film erzählt das erste Jahr des Rockers als Politiker und Visionär einer modernen Demokratie für Taiwan. Er reist mit ihm um die Welt. Freddy holt sich Inspiration bei seinem spirituellem Idol, dem Dalai Lama, in Indien, und besucht unter Chinas heftigem Protest die Vereidigung des neuen US Präsident Donald Trump in Washington. Was passiert, wenn der metallene Held der Unterdrückten seine Bühnenrüstung ablegt und in den Maßanzug des Politikers schlüpft? Wenn er in die Limousine mit Chauffeur und in die öden Niederungen der Tagespolitik hinabsteigt? Wird er scheitern, oder wird seine Künstlerseele die große Aufgabe meistern, die die Geschichte ihm übertragen hat? Von China permanent militärisch als abtrünnige Provinz bedroht, ist Taiwan von den meisten Ländern der Welt nicht als eigener Staat anerkannt. Es ist eine Insel im Nirgendwo. Aber während die meisten Jugendbewegungen unserer Zeit scheitern, hat es die Sunflower-Bewegung in Taiwan mit Freddy Lim bis in die Regierung geschafft. Zum ersten Mal in der Geschichte des Landes regiert jetzt die Opposition mit einer weiblichen Präsidentin, die ihren Wahlkampf Seite an Seite mit der Stimme der Jugend, Freddy Lim, ausgefochten hat. "Metal Politics Taiwan" ist ein Film über einen rebellischen Künstler, der sich zum Realpolitiker wandeln muss und die rebellischen Jugendbewegungen unserer Zeit.

WATCH THE VIDEO for track 'Sacred Self-Deceit' https://youtu.be/H-FIvnCaXYY
The band currently consists of just two members: Alexander Mokin (author, vocalist) and Sergey Stepanenko (guitarist). They make studio music and do not perform live. The best part of their music is its insane composition, original complex riffs and its aggressive and chaotic yet sentimental atmosphere.
Band comments:
"Recently we finished our debut album named Thousand Years of Terror. It is dedicated to the problems of totalitarian states, inspired by the political situation in Russia."
Album cover art is made by Joe Petagno (Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Motörhead, Marduk, Autopsy, etc.)
BIOGRAPHY:
Skyglow was formed as a musical project of Alexander Mokin. In 2012 he started to write music for his first album, combining different subgenres of Death Metal with his own ideas. He was inspired by such bands as early In Flames, Be'Lakor, Metallica and, later, Death, Dissection and early Dark Tranquillity, though the music most of all resembles The Chasm and Necrophagist. Being raised in Russia in the poor city of Saratov he saw the corruption, the lies and the violence of the governemnt, so he chose this to be the main theme of the album. 
In 2016 his friend guitarist Vlad Kudryavtsev agreed to help him with the recording, so they formed a band called "Eyes of Skyglow". On March 29, 2017 they released a demo called "Curse of the Butterfly" which contained a song from the future album and an instrumental track. Due to lack of spare time and experience, Vlad Kudryavtsev left the project. 
Sergey Stepanenko, the leader of the band Excruciation by Silence, who also was Alexander's mate, joined the band to record the full-length album. The recording started in June, 2017 and lasted for 5 months. Long search for a drummer stopped at Dmitry Kim, who was a drummer for Morton, Jinjer, Posthumous Blasphemer, Goatpsalm, Human Nihility and other bands.
In December, 2017 the band changed its name to "Skyglow". Their debut album was called "Thousand Years of Terror" and it tells about the horrors of Russian history. Its release was scheduled for June 30.

BAND INFO
Connate Exasperation was formed in 2009 by Sam, in Tehran, Iran. First work of the band was a self-produced mini album entitled "Crypts of Decay". In that EP, the band was composed of Sam (as composer/guitarist and bassist) and Mohammad (who joined the band as the session vocalist). "Crypts of Decay" was distributed in different parts of the world (USA by Sevared Records and Deathgasm Records, France by Nihilistic Holocaust, Turkey by Extreminal, South Korea by Infernal Kaos, Argentina by Southern Hell,  ...) and received a very good response, keeping the fans eager for new material.
Unfortunately, Sam had to put his musical activities on hold for a few years, but he did not stop thinking about music. During those years, he continued composing new riffs for Connate Exasperation. Then he joined Tension Prophecy for their tour in Russia. After the tour, he stayed with them, this times as a bassist, and cooperated in composing new songs for Tension Prophecy's album "Asylum of Humanity". After a while, Sam started to gather his old and new ideas to resume his activities in his brainchild, Connate Exasperation. Meanwhile, he appeared in Nex Carnis debut album "Obscure Visions of Dark" as session bassist and also contributed two guitar solos in one of the songs in that album.
Finally, in 2016, Sam prepared himself for recording the first full-length album of Connate Exasperation. He invited the talented and experienced Greek drummer, Geroge Trakas (Mass Infection, Resurgency, Blustery Caveat) and they could come to terms on a good agreement for working on the album. Moreover, Sam decided to take over vocals duties. All recordings were finished in 2017. After an extensive search for labels, Connate Exasperation signed a deal with Sleaszy Rider Records for releasing the album.
New album, entitled "Delusional Primacy" is ready to hit the market and the band is currently doing extensive rehearsals to start touring and live performance abroad.
Connate Exasperation tends to blend old school brutality of death metal with some modern influences and complex structures, in a grim and dreary atmosphere. Lyrically, the album deals with subjects like social sickness, human degradation, ignorance and delusion with a tendency towards sarcasm.

"Crypts Of Decay" 2010; MCD-R; Self-released;

Polish/Finnish melodic metallers EXLIBRIS release a second video from their new album "INNERTIA".
"We like to do things differently so this time we asked our artist friends to be a part of the video and left the details up to them. Watching the results was a lot of fun! Too bad we couldn't include everything in a 3-minute video. Maybe we should've chosen a longer song..." - says keyboardist Piotr Sikora.

HUMANITY DELETE was initially formed in 2003, and a demo was recorded but never released. Instead Ribspreader took the time, and Humanity Deleted was put on ice for many years. In 2012 there was an idea to resurrect the band, and finally release the demo recordings. However instead of putting out just the old stuff, a full album was written and released called “Never ending Nightmares". A few more years passed and time again smiled on the ugly heap that was Humanity Delete, and slowly, or rather very quickly, an album was again spawned forth. This time even uglier and more aggressive than ever before, Fuck Forever World was the second effort with a lot of good reviews, now Humanity Delete strike again with 4 song this time Rogga has created more death metal oriented music with the only goal to destroy the fucking humanity .

SKINNED – “ SHADOW SYNDICATE”
FOR FANS OF : ORIGIN, GOJIRA, HYPOCRISY...
OVERVIEW : After more than 20 years at it, four albums and countless gigs and tours worldwide with some of the most recognized of their peers (KATAKLYSM, INCANTATION, DEFEATED SANITY…), USA’s SKINNED are back with their brand new full-length, “Shadow Syndicate“, again produced by Dave OTERO(CATTLE DECAPITATION, CEPHALIC CARNAGE…) resulting in what’s definitely an ambitious and outstanding landmark release of the band’s discography.
Aside from the great musicianship and production, the mastery achieved here is the ability that SKINNEDhave to channel all of their inspiration, musically and lyrically, to create an atmosphere of doom and darkness throughout the album to create a fiery and fierce release that’s diverse yet coherent, dense yet atmospheric and all the while brutal and melodic at the same time.
Varied in shapes and moods, “Shadow Syndicate” (featuring among others guest vocals by Josh WELSHMAN (
DEFEATED SANITY
…) and guest lyrics by Paul McGUIRE (CEREBRAL BORE…), is the kind of work of art that’s much more than a collection of tracks: it’s a world in itself where each song explores a different aspect of dark beliefs (conspiracy theories, unsolved mysteries…), the whole creating a society of extreme darkness under the domination of the New World Order where the citizens become cattle for the governments and guinea pigs for alien entities, etc. ultimately leading our specie to its demise, the face under the merciless boot of the… “Shadow Syndicate“!

After Decibel Magazine's premiere HERE, No Clean Singing featured one of their exclusive tracks AT THIS LINK with a terrific description which is as follows - 
"This is stripped-down, no-frills, Satan-hailing music, but so well-crafted that its primal appeal is compelling, and the spirit that moves through the music like a bat out of hell shows that the long decades haven’t broken Sathanas but rather made them only stronger." 
SATHANAS ( US ) - " NECROHYMNS"
Red LP / Autographed Box Set / CD / Merch / Digital (July 10th, 2018)
Genre - Black/Thrash/Death Metal
Release Date - July 10th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Master, Nekromantheon, mid-period Darkthrone, Power Trip, Desaster, Destroyer 666, Arallu, Rudra, Immortal, Ravencult, Dissection
Black/thrash metal legends Sathanas return with their 10th full length album, after having tirelessly putting them all out since their inception way back in 1988. One of the most unheralded bands in history, Sathanas have only gone from strength to strength even though there's often little to no acknowledgement of their past efforts. Their latest release 'Necrohymns' should change that. It's an absolute ripper from start to finish. Their brand of black/thrash metal is without gimmicks or trends, and they merely rely on the music to get the job done. They're not recreating any sound or paying homage to a certain band. They've been doing it for 20 years and have only been perfecting their art. It's old school, perfectly tempered to dish out the best kind of riffs having a pulsating rhythm to which it's impossible to not move. It's the kind of thrash that has an inherent black metal component in it that's not only genuine, but is also effortlessly created. It's time Sathanas get their due, even if it's 20 years too late.

PASTY CLAN – “ WIR IHR SIE”
Origin: Sankt Valentin (Austria)
Genre: Hardcore, Punk, Metal
FFO: The Bronx, Suicide File, Off, Winnebago Deal, The Melvins, Kvelertak ...

Austrian Metalpunk destroyers PASTY CLAN are back at it with their fifth release and first album in "Wir Ihr Sie". Though the band may appear to (and do) have an attitude of fun with the presentation of the release (there is something of The Melvins in the self depreciation and tongue in cheek nods to the genre on the album cover) this is a ruse, these songs despite their simplicity of presentation are meticulous in the care that has been put into their construction.
The band ticks all the boxes on this release, fat d-beat riffs that sound like they are straight out of the British midlands in the late 70s, riffs that roll between chugging mosh starters to dance inflected (almost radio-freindly) proper punk! The vocals will keep you in no doubt of where the bands allegiences lie though, Zetto and Chris never relenting from an old school hoarse shout throghout the album.
Production-wise the balance is very clean and modern sounding, the balance is very tight between all the instruments and vocals, with nothing feeling overpowered or out of place, such a production might be inferred to give a punk band too clinical a sound but the inherent bounce and liveliness of the tracks pulls it right back to feeling just like being at a really well engineered gig.
This is proper joining in music, I feel like the best comparison I can think of would be something like Kvelertak but with the pretentious guitar noodling cut out and the rawness knocked up a notch, music you can drink a pint to and punch your mates, but in a way that you all remain freinds afterwards. Storming stuff!

Spooks - Guitar (not on this record)
Prolific punishing London crustgrinders SEWER TRENCH are back again, this time delivering a full length album of negativity, blasting and ear-ripping distortion. The ironically titled 'Optimism' is a masterclass in old school, direct, no-frills crusty grind, which isn't to say the release is not varied, the backstory for this release is about as muddled as the unparalleled 'Scum' but certainly sounds a hell of a lot more cohesive than it.
The primary sound on display here is a classic swedeath, crusty guitar tone underpinned by cleanly produced but still very raw sounding drums, chainsaw bass and varied but constantly tearing vocal performances. Though the album is undeniably a grind one the main references that spring to mind are crust punk ones, touches of Wolfbrigade vie with riffs you could find on a Disclose record, just with brutal low growls pulled straight from death metal.
Followers of crust and grind will find plenty to sink their metaphorical teeth into here, with probably a 50/50 blend of furious blasting to manic d-beat, the odd buzzing bass intro and the occasional Motorhead-esque anthemic bridge balanced against a Wolfpack stadium crust riff. There is even almost a black metal track (these guys are clearly into their Darkthrone).
Just solid, ear decimating grind from start to finish with enough variety in the chaos to keep the brain engaged and the fists twitching!

BEYOND CARNAGE – “ PROFANE SOUNDS OF THE FLESH”
Genre: old-school death metal
Record Label: Firecum Records
Release Date: June 18th, 2018
So far, BEYOND CARNAGE have had a short but punishing career. After the first years of activity, which were marked by the unstable lineup, this five-piece from Portugal is bound to turn BEYOND CARNAGE into a household name with the world firmly in their sight. The band’s debut EP “Profane Sounds Of The Flesh” was conceived with the aim to create heavy and apocalyptic noise, with their old-school death metal inspirations being a filthy and powerful landscape. Tracks such as "Necrowizard" or "R'lyeh, Mother of All Abominations" are strongly inspirated in the works of H.P. Lovecraft as well as European pagan legends, while tracks like the opener “Infectious Parasitic Fungal God", “Curse Of The Burning Rain" or "Prophecy From A World Beyond," relies on an apocalyptic vision with a black atmosphere trapped in a paradox of organized chaos.
“Profane Sounds Of The Flesh” was released in Portugal by Firecum Records on June 18th, 2018 and reaches Spotify and the whole world in July.

PENTARIUM – “ ZWISCHENWELT”
Hi! Here's the latest release from Pentarium. Boersma Records presents "Zwischenwelt", the sophomore album from german melodic death metallers Pentarium. Mixing english lyrics with german ones, "Zwischenwelt" is coming your way full of energy and melancholy. The band provides a symbiosis of the Scandinavian sounds with the German toughness, managing to capture their listeners over and over again.
Biography:
Pentarium was founded in the winter of 2006. Within two years and after several changes in their lineup, the band managed to establish themselves in the Hessian scene. 
They won two band contests and henceforth shared the stage with acts such as EKTOMORF, DRONE, HERE COMES THE KRAKEN & DISBELIEF. 
This was followed by their first release in the form of the EP 'The Avenger', in 2009, which brought in concerts as supporting act for EISREGEN and AGATHODAIMON.
In 2012 the band released their album 'Blood for Blood' single-handedly.
To enhance the bands memorability and to bring the songs' topics closer to the fans, the six musicians decided to compose their lyrics predominantly in German. 
The result can be found in their 2016 release 'Schwarzmahler', which extended the band's fame far over the Hessian borders.
The second album 'Zwischenwelt' demonstrates the band's wide stylistic spectrum and was released on May 11th 2018 via Boersma Records.
Lineup:
Carsten Linhs – Vocals
Hendrik Voss – Guitar
Florian Jahn – Guitar
Fabian Laurentzsch – Bass
Philip Burkhard – Keyboard/Synthesizer
Max Peev – Drums

SYMPHONIC ROCKERS GALASPHERE 347 RELEASE VIDEO OF TRACK FROM UPCOMING ALBUM :  Symphonic Rockers GALASPHERE 347, whose self-titled debut full-length album is due to hit the streets on Karisma Records on the 20th July, have today released a video from the album.
The video, by Stephen Bennett, is titled "The Voice of Beauty Drowned Part I".  It is, as the band explains: "A song of longing and loss", and forms a part of the opening track from the album. 
The video can be seen on YouTube at
 https://youtu.be/JfDNft1idqw
Formed in 2018 GALASPHERE 347 is an Anglo-Scandinavian collaboration from members of HENRY FOOL, WHITE WILLOW and  WESERBERGLAND.  Its lineup of Stephen James Bennett on vocals, keyboards and guitars, Ketil Vestrum Einarsen on keyboards, programming and flute, Jacob Holm-Lupo on guitar and bass, and Mattias Olsson on drums, keyboards and guitars, incorporates the technical spectacle of progressive rock, with the distorted insistence of Krautrock, via the intimacy of the singer-songwriter’s oeuvre.
For their debut album, which is composed of three long-form pieces, GALASPHERE 347 have produced a work that is on an epic, widescreen,  scale.  It is  replete with a powerful and dynamic drum sound that intertwines itself with liquid bass lines,  grinding guitars, mellifluous flute and lush analogue keyboards, the whole of which is topped off by passionate vocals.
GALASPHERE 347 recently had this to say about it: "Our debut album is like a progressive rock cruise in outer space—with Stephen James Bennett at the helm. An amalgamation of the four band members’ collective musical past, stewed together in an intergalactic recording studio".
Mixed by Jacob at Dude Ranch Studios, Sandøya, Norway, and mastered by Andy Jackson, best known for his work with PINK FLOYD, and with artwork by Jarrod Gosling, tracklisting for the album is as follows:
1. The Voice of Beauty Drowned
2. The Fallen Angel
3. Barbarella's Lover
The album will beavailable in CD, 12" Gatefold LP and digital formats and is now available to pre-order from the following:

Austin (Texas) band DESTROYER OF LIGHT (Austin, TX) is now part of ARGONAUTA Records family! Formed in 2012 from constantly boiling musical cauldron that is Austin, TX, DESTROYER OF LIGHT has taken a straight forward approach to tempering the disparate and harmonious parts of their influences into a total sum of slow motion tidal heaviness that bows to no altar but that of the riff. With the smoky flavors of hazed out doom and the stomping cadence of rock’s heyday, the band both tickles and deafens the ears with the theatrical flashes of Mercyful Fate, the ominous tones of Electric Wizard, and the ferociously feral feedback of a Sleep dirge.
The band says: “We are excited to announce our collaboration with Argonauta Records for our next LP. As a band, we have continued to evolve and mature, while maintaining the core sound of what is Destroyer of Light. So, after finishing the writing process and doing pre-production on these new songs, it is rewarding to have a record label that feels enthusiasm for these songs just as much as we do.”
New album wiil be released in 2019. More details will follow soon.

Greyhaze Records is proud to announce the August 24 reissue of SARCÓFAGO'S THE WORST on vinyl and cassette formats. The reintroduction of this classic album for the first time on vinyl and tape, complementing the already-existing CD version, comes with massive audio and visual improvements. The album's audio went through a high-quality remastering process, including audio sourced from original master tapes. The Worst's reissue also comes with an expanded visual package including previously unavailable photos from the album's photo session.
Album track "God Bless the Whores" is now streaming below:  youtu.be/r8w9hIGuLBM
Originally released in 1996, Sarcófago's  The Worst was to be the band's last full-length album. Despite criticism on its use of a drum machine, the album serves as a manifest of Metal's elemental counter-culture stance. It was a spit in the face of the then emergent rise of canned, subpar versions of heavy music such as Grunge and Nu Metal.
Sarcófago's The Worst is so much more than the cheap criticism it has received over the years. It is one of the most cherished offerings by the band and a clear symbol that despite attacks on its very essence, true Metal cannot be tamed or boxed into a palatable package. True metal should be wild, non-conforming, bizarre satanic noise.
Track Listing
1. The End (Intro)
2. The Worst
3. Army of the Damned (The Prozac's Generation)
4. God Bless the Whores
5. Plunged in Blood
6. Satanic Lust
7. The Necrophiliac
8. Shave Your Heads
9. Purification Process

HORNWOOD FELL was formed in 2014 with the aim of performing second wave Norwegian-inspired Black Metal music. Their first self-titled album, released by Avantgrade Music, a well-known music label of this genre, was inspired by bands such as: Ulver, Darkthrone and Kvist. In the second album "Yheri" the band’s line-up changed when the bassist Andrea Vacca left the band. So the band which was originally a trio became a "duo" made up of the twin Basili brothers and in "Yheri" the bass guitar was played by Marco Basili. The second album is a concept one and the band enriched their sound by incorporating psychedelic elements maintaining a strong Nordic Black Metal influence combined with clean vocals. The album was released in 2015 by Avantgarde Music. On the 7th of November 2017, the third album "My Body My Time" was released once again by the well-known Italian label which differed greatly from its predecessors: it is the boldest and most emblematic album which touches unexplored Black Metal territories. In April 2018  "INFERUS" was ready to be released, which is an Ep with a completely different style; "Inferus" is a beautifully dissonant, chaotic and extremely dark work.
Genre: Black Metal
Tracklist:
1 Tetro
2 Inferno
3 Morte
Lineup 2018:
Marco Basili: Vocals, Guitars and bass
Andrea Basili: Batteria, guitars and Vocals
Release date (digital only): April 29 2018

GWYDION – “ THIRTEEN”
Release date: July 6th, 2018
Record label: Ultraje
Genre: Viking/Folk Metal
Origin: Portugal
Suitable for fans of early Alestorm, Ensiferum, Eluveitie and Amon Amarth.
Distributed by Plastic Head (UK) and Rock Inc (BeNeLux)
The Portuguese warriors Gwydion are back on the battlefield, ready to slaughter any and every enemy who wants to go against their metal demand, always with European History as background.
Succeeding "Veteran" (2013), "Thirteen" is the fourth album by this band from Lisbon and promises to represent a musical and conceptual maturity, even if it is a band with more than 20 years of career. With "Thirteen", Gwydion begin there in the North with "793", the year that represents the beginning of the Viking Era, and then follow at full speed to the South with tracks like "Oh Land Of Ours - Al Andaluz". Between all, we will hear and be part of battles, sieges, steel confrontations and last sighs – all composed by well detailed guitar riffs that receive much inspiration from melodic death metal, a military drumming execution that marks the marching pace of battalions, vocals diversified between growls and the imperative of a sung ode, without forgetting the folk elements that give color and energy to the entire Gwydion discography.

Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide - we're happy to present you with the release of CONSUMED BY OBLIVION by debuting Midwest-based Death/Doom four piece Void Rot.
Hailing from Minneapolis MN, Void Rot are devoted to constructing massive and soul-consuming dirges of monstrous death-doom that is influenced by the glorious progenitors of majestic, atmospheric, and slow moving death metal like Winter, Rippikoulu, Disembowelment, early Paradise Lost, Incantation, etc.
With their debut MLP Consumed by Oblivion Void Rot unravel 15+ minutes of earth-shaking and telluric death-doom that erupts from the depths of hades and pulverizes into the cosmos, weaving ancestral death metal and atmospheric doom into a dismal and soul-crushing deluge of riffs to construct a sonic colossus of unseen enormity, which will be sure to please all fans of bands like Spectral Voice, Anhedonist, Inverloch, Indesinence, Krypts.
 Consumed by Oblivion officially drops August 3 2018 on tape + digital and on CD + digital on Sentient Ruin and Everlasting Spew Records respectfully, while both labels have an LP version in the works as well slated for the end of the year.

BARKASTH – “ DECAYING”
BARKASTH is a new formation on the landscape of the Ukrainian Black Metal scene. The source of inspiration for the band members is a radically negative attitude towards religion, in any of its manifestations, as the main cause of obscurantism and distorted perception of reality – the main indicator for the level of ignorance of a contemporary man.
In their debut album "Decaying", to be released in June 2018 by Svarga Music, BARKASTH reveals the dark side of idolatry on human life and demonstrates the result of this pernicious influence.
Tracklist:
1. Begging By Freaks
2. Alone
3. Blood & Flesh
4. Soul Away
5. Decaying
6. Shepherd
7. ...Where Was The Son Of God

French phenomenon P.H.O.B.O.S. are best known for their recent split with Blut Aus Nord, but few know that they've been perfecting this sound of theirs since nearly two decades. It's a commingling of industrial black and doom metal, with a lot of mystique and hallucinatory ambience. It can simply be described as an evil Godflesh.
P.H.O.B.O.S. (FRANCE) - 'PHLOGISTON CATHARSIS' 
LP Box Set / Gatefold LP / Autographed CD Box Set / 8-Panel Digipack CD / Merch / Digital 
Genre - Industrial Black/Doom Metal
Release Date - September 10th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - Drug Honkey, Godflesh, Scorn, Eyehategod, 0N0, Ufomammut, Corrupted, Pale Horseman
Dark and hypnotic, P.H.O.B.O.S.'s much awaited full length after their split with
Blut Aus Nord and a standalone EP  is genre-bending exercise for the French band. 'Phlogiston Catharsis' contains eight tracks of highly atmospheric industrial-tinged black/doom metal that are both visceral as well as sonically compulsive. These throbbing, sludgy tunes are atavistic in their heaviness but at the same time forward-thinking in their expression. Taking the best elements of black and doom metal, they concoct a form of music that possibly no other band can claim rights to. Their sound is singular, ominous and game-changing. It's the soundtrack of impending doom.

2. Swallowed by the Dark
3. Eternal Disintegration (Of The Body And Of The Mind)
4. Fading into Emptiness
BIO
Draghkar was formed in 2016 by BW as an outlet for his love of death metal. Originally a tribute to the elder days of the Finnish death metal scene, they put out their first demo on cassette with Witchhammer Productions from Thailand in 2017. It was re-released by Blood Harvest Records later that year. After a series of lineup changes, Draghkar released a split with Desekryptor in the earlier half of 2018 and have come back now with their most ambitious and original output to date, a four track EP entitled The Endless Howling Abyss.

Turkeys' BURIAL INVOCATION have tapped Indy Metal Vault for the exclusive premiere of "VISIONS OF THE HEREAFTER," off the forthcoming album Abiogenesis. 
Stream the track now at 
www.indymetalvault.com/2018/06/28/track-premiere-burial-invocation-visions-of-the-hereafter/
Abiogenesis will be available July 6 on limited-edition vinyl with CD and digital release dates set for August 17 via Dark Descent Records. 
Preorder the album at:   darkdescentrecords.com/store
BURIAL INVOCATION exploded onto the underground scene when their debut EP Rituals of the Grotesque, released in early 2010. Coincidentally, this was the first release under the newly-formed Dark Descent Records banner. The initial pressing of this CD sold out quickly as the band's brand of doomy, crypt-dwelling death metal was infectious as it was blistering.  
Mixing elements of Finnish death metal among other influences, BURIAL INVOCATION followed up the debut EP the next year on the well-received split 7" with Japan's Anatomia. This split, also released on Dark Descent Records, quickly sold out. The band eventually followed these releases with some memorable live appearances including the initial version of Copenhagen's legendary Kill Town Death Fest.
In the years since, the band was inactive as members pursued other projects and interests.  There were rumblings from the band including small European tour runs and we were largely left to wonder what happened to BURIAL INVOCATION?  
In 2017, the fires were lit once more as the band were said to be working on a new album.  Once again under the Dark Descent Records banner (vinyl via long-time ally Me Saco Un Ojo), Abiogenesis sees this Turkish crew reign once more.  No longer will we be left wondering...Burial Invocation has returned and the wait has been well worth it.

NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS KVALVAAG RELEASE PROMO VIDEO OF TRACK FROM UPCOMING ALBUM :  With the 30th July set for the release on Dusktone of their third full-length ALBUM "SEID", Norwegian Black Metallers KVALVAAG have today released a promo video for the track "Bergtatt" from the album.  
As the band's founder Kvalvaag explains,  the choice of "Bergtatt" was deliberate in that  "the track has a natural progression from our previous release, with a stronger focus on groove and atmosphere, rather than tempo.  It serves as  a nice indication of how KVALVAAG sounds in 2018 - trolls, forests and atmosphere all the way.  Sit back and let it drag you through the darkest pits of old Norwegian folklore and history".
The video for "Bergtatt", by Necrolust Productions  can be seen on YouTube at
 https://youtu.be/kHpLO7KClu4
KVALVAAG was formed in Oslo in 2012 as a project in which Øyvind "Kvalvaag" Kvalvågnes (ASTAROTH, VALGALDR, ATTENTAT), could immerse himself completely, each step of the way, from writing, to recording to performing.    Joined on drums by Telol (ASTAROTH, TROLL, SARPEDON), KVALVAAG proceeded to release two full-length albums before beginning work on "Seid"
The album was written and partially recorded between the summer of 2016 and spring of 2017 at the KVALVAAG Studios by Kvalvaag himself on guitars, synth, bass and vocals. Drums were recorded at Studio Hemstad, and vocals at the Kvalsonic Lab. "Seid" was mixed and  mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll at the Kvalsonic Lab in Oslo. 
With additional vocals by Rammr (RAGNAROK, ELVARHØI), and with artwork by Khaos Diktator Design, tracklisting for "Seid" is as follows:
01. Mare
02. Nattegrøde
03. Bergtatt
04. Volvesang Om Undergang
05. Vinterriket (Gehenna cover)
06. Seid
07. I Dyrets Tegn
More aggressive but at the same time more diverse and unpredictable than its predecessors, "Seid" marks a considerable step in the development of the band, as Kvalvaag explains:
"When I started working on the new material, I wanted to surpass our previous work.   More time, effort and better equipment went into the process as compared to our earlier works.  The atmosphere is more or less the same, but there is a lot more going on at all times.
 "We also received financial support from "Norsk fond for utøvende kunstnere", which  gave us the ability to give the album the production it deserved.  It was inspiring to work with Tom Kvålsvoll as he is the man behind the sound of many of the albums we grew up with. He understood our vision and significantly raised the quality  of the album.
"I am really satisfied with both the end result and with our musical progression, and I feel we have successfully raised the bar this time".
"Seid", which will be available in Limited Edition 5" Digipak CD, Digital, Vinyl and Limited Edition Red Vinyl formats is now available to  pre-order from

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

SOLITARY - THE THRASH MACHINE KEEPS ROLLING  Hi – Chris and Paul here from Imperative PR. Today we are pleased to announce another thrash masters Solitary, starting with an appearance tomorrow at the Mosh Against Cancer festival in Coventry. They will be headlining the Hordes Of Belial festival in Scotland, heading across the North Sea for a run of headline shows in The Netherlands and rounding off the year with an appearance at Lawnmower Deth's festive bash at the Camden Underworld. The full list of dates is below:
June 30th - Mosh Against Cancer, Coventry (Special Guests)
July 6th – Dragonfest 6, Bradford (Special Guests)
July 21st - Rebellion, Manchester (with Shrapnel)
August 4th - The Foundry, Dudley
September 29th - Hordes Of Belial Fest 9, Dundee (Headliner)
October 12th - Jays In Extase, Tilburg, Netherlands
October 13th - Musicon, Den Haag, Netherlands
October 14th - Muziek Cafe, Helmond, Netherlands
December 15th - Camden Underworld, London (with Lawnmower Deth)
Speaking about the upcoming shows, front man Rich Sherrington said,
"We are really pleased to be heading back to The Netherlands again! We had a blast there last year and having The Doc Agency on board has made things much easier for us this time around. It was literally all booked in an afternoon! And we're thrilled to get the opportunity to go back to Scotland and play at Hordes of Belial - that's going to be something special. Also, this year it's been 20 years since we released Nothing Changes so we might just have to slip in a couple of tracks from that album.We retired almost all of that material years ago."
As for being part of Lawnmower Deth's special Xmas show in London, Rich couldn't be happier and is looking forward to the challenge
"I don’t think we could have wished for a better show to end the year. It's an absolute honour to be asked to join a bill of that magnitude and as always we’ll be firing on all cylinders - we’ll need to be at the top of our game considering the bands that we are opening for.”
The band are of course always available for phone/email interviews about the impending live dates, their future plans and twenty plus years of thrashing harder and faster than the rest.

AGREGATOR – “ SEMMIBŐL, A SEMMIN ÁT”
Label: GarageLive Records – Budapest, Hungary
Genre: melodic death metal
"We are really glad that „Semmiből – a semmin át” album is completed now, a lot of things had happened to us since 2009, the release of our previous CD and all those expereinces and feelings have been cast and hammered into these songs. This album is somewhat the monument for the 20 years of existence of the band, and we have invited our fans, friends from the underground scene to participate in „Az egésztől innen – mindenen túl” song. A hundred friends, recorded studio-like one-by-one, it has given a badass experience for the guys with these mic and earphone stuff to whisper, shout, sing or growl the chorus of this new song – so it was really about going together on this path. Well, our lyrics are in Hungarian, not a well-known language, but the feeling is somewhat universal – it worths to try. There was this guy, a local metalhead said to me in Graz, Austria after our show in Explosive – „Hey – I do not know what you sing about, I do not have a fucking clue. But you know what? I have quit smoking about a year ago and after your show, well… I had to smoke and drink again as it was that badass I just can’t get rid of the feeling.” So I strongly suggest to give our songs a try, open some strong stuff and remember that there are things you just can’t get from the Light! "

American metal pioneers JUNGLE ROT are revolting and speaking out against the current US Administration with ‘A Burning Cinder,’ the second track from their self-titled album, out July 20, 2018 on Victory Records. Fearlessly honest vocalist Dave Matrise warns of mass planetary strife in this soundtrack for political overthrow. “The US Administration, taking a cue from the President, have exposed themselves as the blind leading the blind. I needed to write something demonstrating that there will be retaliation and revolt, ultimately ending up with mass global war and the earth charring into a burning cinder.”
Listen to “A Burning Cinder” @ Metal Injection.
JUNGLE ROT teamed up with Kataklysm to blast through North America last month and delivered the first taste of new tracks behind Jungle Rot. The road onslaught continues as the Wisconsin natives tour in support of their tenth album, this time sharing the stage with Havok starting July 23 in St. Paul, MN. Additional tour dates to be announced soon.
Jungle Rot pre-orders are available now and include an instant download of ‘Fearmonger’ and ‘A Burning Cinder.’

Redefining Darkness Records and Seeing Red Records are proud to announce a new venture w/ our good friend Reaper of Hells Headbangers / Hellcast / Heavy Metal Relics fame. We will be working exclusively with Reaper on a ton of upcoming releases for his newly relaunched REAPER METAL PRODUCTIONS. Our first official collaboration, although done quietly, was CIST - The Frozen Casket. I am writing to you all today to announce our newest release from Denmark’s Motorpunk Rock & Rollers - Wölfblood - Nightriders. Fans of Midnight, Speedwolf, and Bat will eat this up!!
A little more info on Reaper Metal Productions:
Lurking in the shadows of the underground metal scene for 15 years, Reaper Metal Productions has left its mark on various Vinyl, CD, and DVD releases while spreading its wrath throughout the grid of the internet with online videos and podcast episodes. Owned and operated by Hells Headbangers / Crucified Mortals frontman Reaper, RMP is a domain of death for the slain variety of metal creations.  
Note from Reaper:   "
Reaper Metal Productions focuses on being a metal fan and the metal subculture. No flashy sales text or flavor of the month artists with paid promotion of mundane interviews, lyrics videos, or tabloids with a cram it down your throat objective. If I am not shooting Heavy Metal Relics videos or live streaming the next Hellcast episode I am playing music w/ Crucified Mortals, mixing/mastering albums or simply reorganizing my record collection. In the process maybe you learn about a new release you like, get to complain about a record that sucks or just make it through your workday drowning out nauseating FM Radio or sports talk from your colleagues. Videos, Audio Episodes, texts and free album streams are all available with RMP so there is something for everyone."
ADFAIL - "POETRY OF RUINS"
Digital MLP/ June 22, 2018
The third studio album by Russian Doom/Death Metal band. In this new mini-album, the progress of musical form of the band is well-heard. Massive and melodic sound, where the roaring of riffs and heaviness of meaning are mixed with the female operatic vocal, powerful growl and live & bearded viola.
The album is full of might, which you can hear in breathetaking solos of viola and guitar, simple rhythms and meaningful lyrics. Band really got a level-up with this release, and grows in content and musical variety. Every song is a genuine thing, and it is interesting to listen and follow. The track "Ode" based on John Keats poem "Bands Of Passion And Of Mirts", and "Escape" based on great Dante Alighieri's poetry "La Divinna Commedia".
The music of the band is a kind of mental pabulum and may fit to fans of such bands as Therion, Sirenia, Tristania, Septic Flesh, Draconian, Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride and more!

NEWS 24.6.2018

                                                                                                           
So Leute ,jetzt wird’s langsamernst ! Die letzten paar Reviews noch reinbringen, fertig layouten ,den Kopierer heiß laufen lassen …und schon könnt ihr wieder eure Sitzung auf der Latrine mit unserer aktuelle „Klolektüre“ verlängern oder vielleicht sogar verschönen – grins . Mit satten 130 Seiten bestückt ,gibt’s hier dann mal wieder für jeden ,der sich als (Underground)Metaller bezeichnet ,mehr oder weniger geistig kreatives interessantes zu entdecken .Also ,seid gespannt drauf und legt schon mal die nötigen 2,20€ dafür beiseite .
Zehn Jahre ist es inzwischen her, dass das Bielefelder Musikunternehmen NUVINCI unter dem Titel DEAFGROUND eine Marke ins Leben rief, die sich mit ihren Angeboten und Dienstleistungen speziell an die Bedürfnisse junger, aufstrebender Bands und Musiker richtete. Diese umfassten neben dem bis heute bestehenden hauseigenen Service-Label Deafground Records auch eine eigene Netzwerk- und Gigtausch-Plattform für Bands. Zehn Jahre später, im Social Media Zeitalter des Jahres 2018, mag ein Bandnetzwerk an Relevanz verloren haben – umso unerlässlicher heutzutage ist jedoch eine strategische digitale Selbstvermarktung über unterschiedliche Plattformen und Kanäle: Bandprofile in allen relevanten sozialen Medien, eine eigene Homepage, Musikerplattformen, Streamingdienste, Presseportale? Je mehr Angebote bedient werden, desto größer die Präsenz - und umso intensiver und zeitaufwändiger deren Pflege. Höchste Zeit für eine Lösung, mit der sich all die vielen, unterschiedlichen Portale, auf denen man als Künstler heutzutage vertreten sein muss, gleichzeitig verwalten und aktualisieren lassen: Deafground.com!
'Wir arbeiten schon seit einiger Zeit intensiv an einem Neustart unseres digitalen Angebots', verrät Unternehmenssprecherin Annika Tiedemann. So ging bereits im letzten Jahr mit dem Deafground Shop der neue Webshop des Unternehmens online. Zudem ist seit Anfang des Jahres die neue Homepage des Labels Deafground Records verfügbar. Auch das eigene Webstream-Format Deafground L!VE ist Teil des Projekts. Doch bei NUVINCI plant man noch mehr: 'Mit Deafground.com möchten wir ein Portal schaffen, dass es Bands und Musikern ermöglicht, den Content für ihre verschiedenen Online-Auftritte zu vereinheitlichen, einmal zu hinterlegen und konzentriert über einen einzigen Zugang zu verwalten. Die gespeicherten Inhalte können auf unserer Plattform zudem nicht nur als öffentlich einsehbares Bandprofil ausgegeben werden, sondern auch als zugangsbeschränktes Electronic Press Kit mit erweiterten Inhalten und Downloadfunktionen. Langfristig sollen Künstler über Deafground.com auch die Möglichkeit erhalten, ihre Musik in Eigenregie digital zu veröffentlichen und zu vertreiben. Wir planen eine umfassende Plattform, die es Musikern ermöglicht, alle Facetten der digitalen Selbstvermarktung über einen einzigen Kanal zu steuern, damit endlich wieder mehr Zeit bleibt für das, worauf es eigentlich ankommt: Die Musik!', so Tiedemann.
Mit dem Start des Portals am 29.06.2018 wird das Unternehmen zunächst die Gestaltung der neuen Oberfläche vorstellen; die Freischaltung der Anmeldefunktion für Bands soll in Kürze erfolgen. Weitere Funktionen kündigt NUVINCI für den Verlauf des Jahres an.
Als kleines Bonbon zum zehnjährigen Bestehen, plant man bei Deafground Records noch ein weiteres Highlight und konnte die Bielefelder Groove Metal Formation LINSEED reaktivieren: Das Quintett hatte im Jahr 2008 als erste Band sein Debütalbum 'LINSEED' (VÖ 29.05.2008) über das frisch gegründete Label veröffentlicht. Nun wird das Album zeitgleich mit der Freischaltung der neuen Künstlerplattform in digitaler Form als Re-Release erscheinen. Doch damit nicht genug, denn LINSEED waren noch einmal fleißig: Mit der Digital-EP 'ENEMY' wird Deafground Records am 29.06.2018 (VÖ) zusätzlich noch drei nagelneue Songs der Band, stilecht voll packender Mid-Tempo Riffs, synkopierter Rhythmen, Hardcore-Gebrüll, Sprechgesang, irrer Shouts, Wut, Aggression, viel Zerre und viel Dreck, veröffentlichen! 'LINSEED klingen 2018 ein bisschen reifer und melodischer, vielleicht auch mal etwas nachdenklicher und natürlich auch moderner als vor zehn Jahren', so Frontsänger Dennis Winkler. Und Andreas Niepel, Bandgründer und Kopf der Truppe, ergänzt: 'Druck haben die drei Nummern ohne Ende und sie grooven auf jeden Fall wie eh und je!'
Jede Menge gute Gründe also, sich den 29. Juni 2018 rot im Kalender anzustreichen. Man sieht sich auf Deafground.com!

Die finnischen Melancholic Progressive Metaller AMORPHIS haben am 18. Mai 2018 ihr überaus erfolgreiches neues Album »Queen Of Time« via Nuclear Blast veröffentlicht.

Manchmal dauert es ein bisschen länger, bis ein Werk seine Vollendung erreicht.  So geschehen bei MAXXWELL, welche sich für ihren vierten Output «METALIZED» satte vier Jahre Zeit genommen haben. «Tabula Rasa» das letzte Album der Truppe bescherte den Musikern Support-Touren mit Michael Schenker’s Temple Of Rock, Doro, Kissin’ Dynamite, Rage & Shakra sowie Supporslots für Within Temptation, Extreme, Gloryhammer – um nur einige zu nennen. So kamen insgesamt über zweihundert Shows zusammen in der knapp 10-jährigen Karriere von MAXXWELL.
Am 21. September 2018 erscheint nun der Nachfolger, stilvoll auf den Namen «Metalized» getauft. Und der Name ist Programm, die vielen Konzerte haben Spuren hinterlassen. Die Band präsentiert sich härter, eingängiger, griffiger und um einiges bissiger als auf ihren früheren Outputs. Ein erstes Lebenszeichen gibt es am 29. Juni 2018, denn dann wird der Lyric-Clip zu «Metalized» veröffentlicht. Eine Ehrerbietung an die grossen Einflüsse der Band, Augenzwinkern inklusive. Ab diesem Zeitpunkt kann man das neue Album auch bereits vorbestellen. Den Teaser zum Clip findest du HIER.
Die Band ist bereit, die Bühnen dieser Welt zu erobern, die Zeichen stehen auf Sturm. Ein Garant für das neue Selbstvertrauen der Band ist auch der komplett autonome Weg, welcher eingeschlagen wird. Die Band ist Label, Management, Booking und Produzent in einem. Und auch eine Tour wurde bereits wieder bestätigt. MAXXWELL begleitet Threshold auf deren «Legends Of The Shires»-Tour als Special Guest. (Tourdaten findet ihr weiter unten)

FETUS IN FETU signs record deal with Narcoleptica Productions . After the release of “Abnormal Disfigurement” in 2011 through Casket Music, the Danish death metal act Fetus in Fetu is finally ready with the follow-up album entitled “MONGOLIAN MEATFARM” which combines brutal death metal with slam.
7 years have passed since the debut album and in the period following the album the departure of guitarist Nougat-smeden and bass-player Astor.
Stepping into the band was guitarist Paw Møller and bass-player Michael Asmund that lead to the current line-up:
Bekker; growls
Johnni; guitar
Paw; guitar
Asmund; bass
Hatten; Drums.
The change in line up has affected the music. While still playing brutal death metal with lots of blast beats, the music has taken a more groovy approach and taken the band to a more slammish style. – Still destroying all in their way!
Mongolian Meatfarm is to be released through Narcoleptica Productions and will be released the 5. of September 2018.
Fetus in Fetu thereby joins their fellow compatriots and friends in Emesis who have signed with Narcoleptica Productions.
Fetus in Fetu plans for a tour in Demark following the release of Mongolian Meatfarm.

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

BEYOND DETH – “ THE AGE OF DARKNESS”
Label: Self-Released
Beyond Deth is the brainchild of Jon Corston who began writing for the project back in 2003. As the catalog grew it became more of a serious endeavor and musicians were needed to create the live sound. Beyond Deth officially began in February of 2012 with the release of their first demo “What Lies” featuring 3 songs and the first lineup to hit the stage. They then followed up with a self titled 2 song demo in 2014 to further solidify their presence. During this time, they were briefly signed to an Indy Label name Nativity Records but sadly, the label went bankrupt. 
Beyond Deth’s sound is a mixed bag, combining elements from Death Metal, Thrash Metal, Black Metal, Melodic Metal and even Power metal influences. No 2 songs sound the same and a “No Trends”, “No Gimmick” attitude is firmly in place. The music is fast, heavy and continually evolving as time progresses. Their first full length album is slated for a 2017 release and will showcase more of this diversity.
Beyond Deth has shared the stage with many greats such as Malevolent Creation, Benediction, Bolt Thrower, Deicide, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Carach Angren, Starkill, Abigail Williams, Incantation, 1349, Macabre, Morbid Saint, DeathHammer and many more
They have built quite the stir in their hometown of Chicago but have always had their sights on the rest of the world. They regularly perform all around the Midwest improving themselves as a solid regional act and steady touring is the main focus at this point in their career. They will do whatever it takes to continue pushing forward for the fans.
Beyond Deth 2018 Live Lineup
Jon Corston  -  Vocals/Guitars
Matt Baranski - Drums

Greek Death Metallers GRAVEWARDS will release full-length debut album RUINOUS ENSOULMENT July 27 through Unspeakable Axe Records (the album will be available through international distribution channels on August 31).  New track "Sworn in Denial - Omega Syndrome" is streaming at youtu.be/7d6krIt4Xjo
Pre-orders are available now at  this location.
Appearing almost completely from thin air, Greek death metallers GRAVEWARDS made a small but intense impression with their 2017 demo Subconscious Lobotomy.  That independently-released 4-track tape was the kind of death metal too rarely heard in recent years, having the spirit of the original bands but not married to any particular influence or scene.  Rather than emulating an album or style they loved, GRAVEWARDSs paid some homage to the sounds of the 1990s while finding their own way forward.
Now their debut full-length Ruinous Ensoulment is here, and it delivers thoroughly on the promise and the mission statement of their demo.  Seven bludgeoning tracks and one intro deep, this album has the band reaching a very early peak in their young career.  Songs are technical without descending into wankery, often utilizing the kind of backward, nightmare-logic riffs that initially separated death metal from thrash, but which many bands now have either discarded in favor of straightforward Slayerisms or pushed to an incomprehensible extreme.  GRAVEWARDS finds fertile ground in between, delivering one line after another that is somehow incredibly catchy but also very unique.  These passages often give way to either groovy mid-tempo parts or bursts of full-on melody, without ever becoming saccharine - again, a degree of good taste is shown that is too rare in a genre where bands like to find what works and then double or triple down on it.  Over these well-developed compositions, vocals are less growls than the shouts of a crazed demon choking on the blood of its enemies.  Nothing about Ruinous Ensoulment is rote or easily expected; instead GRAVEWARDS marks out their own territory with the creativity and fearlessness that was more prevalent when the genre was still new.
Track List:
1. Intro
2. Sworn In Denial - Omega Syndrome
3. Souls Twisted Beyond Recognition

THE ETERNAL have released the first single from their upcoming album ‘WAITING FOR THE ENDLESS DAWN’. ‘In the Lilac Dust’, which features the enigmatic voice of Mikko Kotamäki from Finnish doom legends Swallow The Sun, is available on all major online services such as Spotify, iTunes & Apple Music through Finnish Label Inverse Records.
The current incarnation of the band featuring Mark Kelson (Alternative 4, Insomnius Dei, Cryptal Darkness), Martin Powell (My Dying Bride, Cradle of Filth, Anathema), Marty O’Shea (Dreadnaught) & Dave Langlands alongside the addition of renowned Australian guitarist Richie Poate (Dreadnaught). The band have spent over 3 years writing and recording what can be best described as the bands darkest & heaviest album to date.
Waiting For The Endless Dawn proves to be a heavy hearted, dark statement in the bands diverse and long career, which will see the band endeavouring to tour extensively and performing the album in it’s entirety in 2018 and beyond.

KILL EVERYTHING – “SCORCHED EARTH”
Genre: Brutal Death Metal
For fans of: Cannibal Corpse | Devourment | Guttural Secrete | Disentomb
Line-up:
Brian Wynn - 8 String Guitars
Mike Majewski - Vocals
Shane Newbrough - Drums/Samples
Weston Wylie-8 String Guitar, Backup Vocals
Jeff Huffman - Bass
There is a soundtrack to the thoughts of men that exist solely to destroy. It is the distillation into sound of the total absence of light, hope and life and gives voice to the essence of bleak, nihilistic hatred. It will disgust you with its unmitigated brutality, it will unnerve you with its utter lack of human emotion and it will offer you nothing but death...
That bludgeoning, battering soundtrack comes in the form of the debut album by Kill Everything, entitled Scorched Earth. Featuring two of the founding members of Devourment, legends of sickening musical savagery in their own right and two men from the ranks of the punishing Primordius, Kill Everything dig even deeper into the filth. Recorded with Russell Hollar at Russell Hollar Music (A Threat To The Enemy, I Am Destruction etc), Scorched Earth is the aural equivalent of being buried alive in a plague pit – suffocating, claustrophobic, rancid with the stench of death, with all enveloping horror at every turn. While Mike Majewski’s vocals summon visions of choking on blood and vomit Brian Wynn’s thick, diseased riffs are an incessant tumult of blinding sludge and gore. There is no relief, no respite just a relentless, unending onslaught, driven ever onwards by the brute force drum assault of the indefatigable Shane Newbrough.
There’s really only one label where an album like Scorched Earth could have found a home, where such depravity would be welcomed with open arms – Comatose Music, where terror and torment are king. On August 17th Comatose will unlock the cage and send Kill Everything’s debut out into the world, a merciless predator with no aim but total destruction.
There have been whispers in the depths of the underground about this release for some time now, the devoted followers of the heaviest, darkest death metal waiting impatiently to test themselves against its harsh horrors, eager to experience a new level of barbaric butchery. Well now it’s here and as the saying goes, be careful what you wish for...

Chilean Thrashers HELLISH have joined forces with Indy Metal Vault for the premiere of "The Screams Come from Inside," a track from forthcoming Unspeakable Axe Records album THE SPECTRE OF LONELY SOULS. Stream the song and check out an interview with the band at  this location.
HELLISH will release sophomore album The Spectre of Lonely Souls July 27 on Unspeakable Axe Records (the album will be available through international distribution channels on August 31).  Stream another new track, "The Walker of Shadows." at the following link: youtu.be/cnvUnSiH6xg
Pre-orders are available now at  this location.
Many continents can lay claim to being formative breeding grounds for various pieces of the extreme metal puzzle, but perhaps none were such a melting pot as South America in the 1980s.  Bands in Brazil, Chile, and other countries pushed thrash metal to its limits until it blurred into what would later be known as black and death metal, and dressed the whole thing in extreme expressions of occultism and hellfire.  With that bed of influence bubbling beneath them, modern-day thrashers HELLISH make perfect sense: tightened and refined (but only barely), without diminishing any of the speed-freak tendencies or punkish intensity of their predecessors, and certainly no less devoted to the left hand path.
Coming out of Santiago, Chile in the 2010s, HELLISH previously made believers out of thrash fans worldwide with their Unspeakable Axe-released debut, 
Grimoire.  Only two years later, the follow-up album manages to out-pace and out-riff what came before. Classic speed metal-style riffs cut through an atmosphere of evil worthy of Bathory or Possessed - this is formative stuff, once again splashing around in the dark murk between thrash and black metal, and even straight-up heavy metal in the occasional, surprisingly melodic lead parts.  But make no mistake: HELLISH worship at the twin altars of evil and velocity, and The Spectre of Lonely Souls is a sermon strictly for the already-converted.
Track List
1. Rising
2. The Night
3. The Screams Come From Inside
4. The Curse Upon Us
5. Souls Of Desolation
6. Only Death

Decibel Magazine premiered a scathing track of newcomers Crawl  AT THIS LINK. Veteran writer Shawn Macomber wrote this in his article -
"Crawl self-identifies as “D-beat death metal” and on the unrelenting, fantastically brutal Rituals — out next month via Transcending Obscurity — the Swedish quartet deliver on that cross-subgenre promise about as viciously and perfectly as any discerning extreme music fan could reasonably hope."
CRAWL (SWEDEN) - 'RITUALS' 
LP Box Set / LP / Autographed Silver-embossed CD Box Set / CD / Merch / Digital (August 20th, 2018)

Release Date - August 20th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - Dismember, Skitsystem, Feral, Paganizer, Gatecreeper, Bloodbath, Down Among The Dead Men, Master
From the label that put out releases of
Paganizer, Henry Kane and Ursinne which upheld the brand of Swedish death metal, you have Crawl unleashing their debut full length that sets new standards for the style. Crushing Swedeath honouring the progenitors and at the same time stepping out their shadows by concocting a vile mix with influences of punk/crust and hardcore is what's on offer here. 'Rituals' is an irreverent exercise in bombarding the classic style with fresh elements and lending to the staid style new vitality. Prepare to be shocked, annihilated and thrilled at the prospect of listening to the new masterpiece.

NYTT LAND – “ ODAL”
Oðal is inspired by the traditional music of the indigenous peoples of Siberia, the Old Icelandic epic and the atmosphere of classic Norwegian black metal.
Siberian band NYTT LAND presents its new epic musical canvas. Working with the same unchanging 4 band-members, the musicians continue to revive the true magical sound of the Ancient North.
This time the album was recorded without using samples; all parts of the instruments were performed live. All songs were recorded and mixed in one of the technical quality best Russian studios, “Radio Sibir”, which strongly affected the sound quality. All the sounds of nature were recorded in western Siberia and northern Norway.
For the first time the 4-year-old son of Natalia and Anatoly, Yuri Pakhalenko, took part. By this they emphasise the concept of the album – heritage.
As in the previous album, Fimbulvinter (CSR234CD), Oðal features the traditional Siberian overtone singing technique “kargyraa”, but the overtone singing by vocalist Natalia Pakhalenko gives a special character to the sound. This is very unique, since this technique is a almost exclusively a male singing practice due to its physicality.
Members:
Anatoly “Nordman” Pakhalenko – vocals, throat singing, tagelharpa, percussion, keys, programming, mixing.
Natalya “Krauka” Pakhalenko – vocals, throat singing, frame-drum, jew-harp, tin whistle.
Vladimir Titkov – tin whistle, recorder, tenor recorder, percussion, voice. 
Sergey Silitcky – drums, percussion, voice.
Guests musicians:
Yuri Pakhalenko – voice (Deyr Fé / The Heritage)
Viktor Romanenkov – warrior’s choir (Darraðarljóð)
Nikolai Vlasov – warrior’s choir (Darraðarljóð)
Credits:
All songs composed, produced and recorded by Anatoly “Nordman” Pakhalenko and Natalya “Krauka” Pakhalenko in 2017.

IMPERIAL DOMAIN – “THE DELUGE”
Format:
 CD/Digital
Release Date: August 10th 2018
Record label: Inverse Records
Genre: Melodic Death Metal
Country: Sweden 
Swedish melodic death metal band IMPERIAL DOMAIN released a first single 'True Face of War' from their upcoming third album 'The Deluge'. The album is released August 10th 2018 by Finnish record label Inverse Records. 
WATCH THE VIDEO: 
https://youtu.be/xUkQmwd8bEE
Imperial Domain was formed in Uppsala, Sweden, back in 1994. 
In June 1997 they recorded their debut album entitled ”In The Ashes Of The Fallen” in Sunlight Studios. The second album entitled ”The Ordeal” was recorded in October-November 2000 in Prime Studios.
Both albums received great reviews around the world and the band continued to play until 2005. From that time the band members continued to play in other constellations until they decided to start up the band again in 2014.
The hunger for making music was there again and they all were eager to create something new, this Imperial machine had more to offer. But unfortunately, tragedy struck the same year as the singer Tobias von Heideman passed away. This didn't stop the band however, they were determined to complete material for a new album, which they did in 2016. These boys have something really special in their hands. It's melodic yet incredibly heavy and noncompromising as their new singer Andreas Öman proves to be a worthy replacement for Tobias.
”The Deluge” the brand new offering from IMPERIAL DOMAIN contains 8 well executed tracks of immaculate production values recorded in HSH-studio. With mixing and mastering of the highest quality at E.A.P. by Ronnie Björnström and artwork by Pete Alander at BANDMILL, you can be assured of a piece of work with uncompromising quality.
An album this strong can't be ignored!

Nuclear War Now! and Iron Bonehead Productions are proud to announce the further expansion of an already significant partnership through their joint effort to present the inaugural Never Surrender Fest, to be held in Berlin, Germany, in November of 2018. Having collaborated in the planning and execution of the five Nuclear War Now!

Mit großen Schritten geht es nun aufdie Fertigstellung unserer aktuellen Jubileumsausgabe Nr . 50 zu .Das Wetter in den letzten 14 Tagen war ja nun nicht wirklich so ,als das man tagtäglich nur so vor Kraft strotzte .Dennoch haben wir uns nun selbst so richtig fett in den Arsch getreten und intensiv damit beschäftigt ,all das vorhandene Material reinzubeamen und fertig zu layouten .Zwar schaffen es auch dieses Mal wieder ganze 2 Interviews nicht mit ins Heft ,was an den unterschiedlichsten Ursachen liegt .Aber wir denken und hoffen mal ,das wir Euch die dann in der nächsten ( hoffentlich im Dezember erscheinenden Ausgabe ) präsentieren können .
Da wir in den letzten beiden Wochen nun doch arg mit Lust ,Laune und Kraftreserven zu kämpfen hatten ,war es nun absolut nicht drin ,sich da auch noch um die Aktualisierung der Webside zu kümmern . Aber umso fetter können wir Euch jetzt und hier wieder mit aktuellen Neuigkeiten aus der „Szene“ beglücken !
Sehr geehrte Extremsportler! Nach über 20 Karrierejahren muss man JUNGLE ROT nun wirklich niemandem mehr vorstellen. Die Truppe aus Wisconsin steht für barbarisches Extremmetall, das den Feind auch noch nach dem Hissen der weißen Fahne erbarmungslos niedermäht. Das neue Schlachtfest hat man schlicht und ergreifend "JUNGLE ROT" getauft und lässt es jetzt via Victory Records auf die Szene los. Der Titel suggeriert es bereits: Die Band hat ihren Sound in der Schnittmenge aus Death- und Thrash Metal längst gefunden und ist verdammt stolz drauf. "Jungle Rot" knallt von Anfang bis Ende, gemixt und gemastert hat kein Geringerer als Dan Swanö, und in der Tradition geschmackssicher gewählter Coverversionen präsentiert man diesmal eine grandiose Interpretation von Kreators Classic ´Terrible Certainty´. Und hört mal genau hin, wer auf ´Fearmonger´ die Gast-Vocals übernimmt. Ja, das ist der Frontmann von einer der anderen Teutonic-4-Kapellen: Schmier von Destruction.
Den Song könnt Ihr HIER schon mal hören:

Geziert wird das Prachtwerk erneut von einem absoluten Weltklasse-Grusel-Artwork.

Die schweizerische Thrash Metal Band CORPUS DELICTI bietet energiegeladene Songs, denen es nie an der Geschwindigkeit mangelt: Brachiale Gitarren und donnernde Double Bass Läufe, dazu wütende Vocals! Dieser schöne Mix produziert eine komplexe Rhythmik wie man sie in den alten Songs der Eidgenossen von Celtic Frost oder auf den frühen Alben von Kreator wiederfindet. Kenner und Liebhaber des Genres werden diese sicherlich zu schätzen wissen. Vollgas und voll auf die Zwölf!
Traf man sich anfangs noch zum Jammen und Spielen von Coversongs, widmete man sich kurz darauf dem Schreiben eigener Songs. 2013 fassten Drummer Simon Bommeli, die Gitarristen Manuel und Jonas Ehrismann, sowie Sänger Sileno Püntener den Entschluss zur Bandgründung. Mit dem ersten Lineup-Wechsel im Winter 2015 - Tiziano Iannuzzo übernahm den Platz des ausgestiegenen Jonas Ehrismann - kamen ebenfalls Gedanken über ein eigenes Album auf und so entstanden die ersten Songs für das jetzt erscheinende Album „BREAK EVERYTHING“.
Erste Schritte dazu wurden im Jahr 2016 unternommen, als man mit dem Recording der Pilotspuren begann. Die Aufnahmen im Studio waren im Sommer 2017 abgeschlossen. Ebenfalls in diesem Jahr spielte die Band ihre ersten Live-Auftritte um das Material vor Publikum zu testen.
Im Juli 2018 wird das Album nun endlich von Blood Rite Records weltweit veröffentlicht.
Ein Lyric Video zum Titelsong Break Everything gibt's hier:

Die italienischen Post-Apokalyptischen Thrasher REVOLUTIO werden ihr neues Album Vagrant am 9. November via Inverse Records veröffentlichen.
Um die Ankündigung zu feiern, hat die Band ein Lyric-Video für Meek And The Bold veröffentlicht. 
https://youtu.be/XRqegRXYZ-s
Sänger Maurizio Di Timoteo kommentierte:
“Vagrant besteht aus vielen Reisen, Reisen zu entfernten und unmöglichen Orten. Einige dieser Orte leben in unseren Köpfen, andere werden in unseren Seelen aufbewahrt. Meek and the Bold gräbt sich in den endlosen Konflikt, der in jedem von uns tobt. Unsere milde Seite möchte Opfer vermeiden und Leiden ertragen, während die kühne Seite den Kampf für die Veränderung unserer Welt von Hass und Elend umarmt. Diese beiden Aspekte können nicht getrennt werden, weil dies die Natur der menschlichen Seele ist. Die Annahme dieser Dualität als eine natürliche Bedingung ist ein entscheidender Schritt im Bewusstsein des Selbst.”
Sie können die digitale Single Meek And The Bold auf
Amazon herunterladen oder auf Spotify streamen. Das physische Format von Vagrant kann hier vorbestellt werden https://bit.ly/2LIP4mG

"Being the child of my thoughts, this album is the true face of the band - a well-fused combination of melodic black metal and groove metal the way we see it. As always, the album includes a separate unique story behind each song."
"Our ambitions were through the roof on this release - we re-recorded and improved the lines for all the instruments, including the drums, bass, and even addinig some extra guitars, while Gleb's [Sysoev] vocals sound as massive and crushing as always. Honesty and a natural aggressive sound are the qualities that distinguish independent artists from purely commercial ones these days, and we are happy that we can create music for the sake of art and not for just raking in some cash. We hope that our sound, punchy and somewhat scary, like a gust of cold northern wind in a seemingly empty home in the middle of the night will let you get fully immersed in the atmosphere that we embedded in the music - nine different stories related to darkness. Darkness in temptations, actions, soul, socium, thoughts - darkness in anything and everything you can possibly imagine. Don't forget that each song has annotations, as we try to create real musical works of art that frighten with their beauty. And beauty is enchanting."
The Black is available on  Spotify,  iTunes,  Bandcamp,  and other digital retailers.

BIO
Second To Sun is a metal band from Saint Petersburg, Russia, founded in 2012 by its guitarist Vladimir Lehtinen. Unlike many modern metal bands, who tend to gain fans and spread their music using a more visual element - live performances, music videos, band image, etc., Second To Sun try to concentrate on the musical aspect more and use visual elements (artwork, etc.) to give more depth and back story to the music. The band's music contains a unique blend of metal genres: on the one hand, it has the many rhythmic elements of groove metal; on the other -hand, it continues the legacy of such classic Scandinavian black metal bands as Emperor, Mayhem, and Dakthrone. Such diverse musical roots of the band protrude from Vladimir Lehtinen's songwriting, Gleb Sysoev's soul-crushing vocals and Fedor Borovsky's groovy drum lines. The band releases two versions of each album - the vocal and the instrumental one. Everything the band does is 100% DIY and 100% independent - they aren't signed to any labels and don't outsource anything - everything is composed and recorded by the band's members. Each individual instrumental composition is accompanied by unique artwork and a hefty description of the story the composition tells, which provides a deeper insight into the music, as well as the band's inspiration and creative process. Second To Sun released new album The Black on May 16, 2018.

Rogers (AR) - A JUDGEMENT DIVINE, the forthcoming new album from Black/Death Metal duo TORII, is now streaming in its entirety. The album will be released on June 8. Stream and pre-order at  torii.bandcamp.com/album/a-judgement-divine
Though black and death metal are core elements, the basic description doesn't quite capture the breadth of the music, colored as it is with post-metal grays and streaks of doom. Multi-instrumentalist/lyricist Bill Masino and vocalist/lyricist Eric May have created yet another masterwork of oppressive darkness and an intensity that burns continually, all of which confirms Toilet ov Hell's praise of TORII as "undoubtedly the single best unsigned band in the entire Razorback State of Arkansas." Topped off with stunning cover artwork by Cornelius van Haarlem (depicting two followers of Cadmus devoured by a Dragon, 1588), A Judgement Divine is nothing short of a watershed release.
"Multi-instrumentalist Bill Masino and vocalist Eric May-who joined forces with Masino for 2013's The Shadow of the Mountain, after a pair of all-instrumental albums-have been making music with a pronounced black/death metal influence, but they also bring something different to the genre." - Indy Metal Vault
"A Black/Death Metal duo who bring the thunder. If you are a fan of black or death metal be sure to get this album." - The Median Man
"Torii are a great sounding mixture of black, sludge, doom, death and post -metal."- A Different Shade of Black Metal

Hi – Chris and Paul from Imperative PR here. We are pleased to welcome another heavy armoured division to our ranks, another beast from the savage and unforgiving world of Comatose Music. On August 3rd ABHORRENT DEFORMITY will unveil SLAUGHTER MONOLITH - their second album and a staggering edifice of magnificent horror! In the past, Teeth Of The Divine have described Abhorrent Deformity as “...a vortex of clinical, tech death speed...”, but with Slaughter Monolith they have become so much more...
Within vocalist Mark De Gruchy’s inhuman howling there are twisted tales to beguile the ear, dark paths to be followed, enticing secrets to be found. When these songs open themselves up, revealing an unsuspected vastness, the effect is addictive. A haunted dreamscape is uncovered, a place of shadows and terror that you’d wade through blood to revisit.
Combining frightening technical ability and velocity with the crimson hued temptations of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser mythos and the bludgeoning ambition and bleak visions of Cannibal Corpse’s Gallery Of Suicide, Abhorrent Deformity are taking brutal death metal to a new charnel house of nightmares.

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

San Antonio-based blackened death metal horde PIOUS LEVUS has unleashed its debut album - BEAST OF THE FOULEST DEPTHS - on Warfare Noise Productions.
Former members of THORNSPAWN, HOD and BURIAL SHROUD converge for 11 tracks of vile and violent blasphemy in the vein of NECROVORE, BATHORY, DARKTHRONE and BLASPHEMY. The album is available for streaming, download and CD at  www.piouslevus.bandcamp.com.
PIOUS LEVUS was formed by Swornghoul (guitar/vocals) and Necroinferno (drums) in 2014. In 2016 Lord Necron (guitar) joined the fold. All three are ex-members of Texas Black Metal band Thornspawn, an early and dominant force in the Texas black metal movement co-founded by Necron and Swornghoul. During their time in Thornspawn, Necron and Swornghoul were responsible for writing what many now consider the band's most important and influential material.  
After Necron left Thornspawn he started Texas hellraisers Hod while Swornghoul and Necroinferno formed Burial Shroud. It wasn't long before the unholy trio reunited to unleash their most violent band yet - PIOUS LEVUS. The band's debut album "Beast of the Foulest Depths" was released in early May to coincide with first ever live show (w/ black/death metal veterans Morbosidad). Expect unholy violence from these veterans of the Texas Metal Underground. 
PIOUS LEVUS is:
Lord Necron - guitars
Swornghoul - guitars/vocals
Necroinferno - drums
Nazraat - bass

Following years of silence, the brutal death-grind veterans in REINFECTION are back. The band has signed a deal with Deformeathing Production which will include a reissue of the out-of-stock debut album, “THEY DIE FOR NOTHING”.
“They Die for Nothing” was recorded in Izabelin Studio and originally released in the USA by Ablated Records in 1999. Fans of death gore and grind metal will be able to revel once again in Reinfection’s debauchery. The reissue will be released as it was originally without new sound mastering or mixing. The only change will be a refreshed graphic design with new artwork and a thicker booklet. The album will be available as a standard jewel case CD with a 12-page booklet on 29 June 2018 via Deformeathing Production.
Pre-orders are available here: 
https://deformeathing.com/en/index.php/reinfection-they-die-for-nothing-cd-pre-order.html
Reinfection were formed in 1994 in Poland and self-released their debut, “The Edge of Her Existence”, in 1998 in cassette format. The demo presented the band as one of the most brutal and sick bands in the metal scene at the time. Following numerous concerts and an exceptional reception from their fans, the band proved their position within their native scene. At that time, Reinfection were on par with names such as Damnable, Parricide, Dead Infection, Yattering, Epitome or Squash Bowels. A year later, the band released their full-length album, “They Die for Nothing” via Ablated Records. This was followed by a series of shorter recordings (split, EP, compilation and demo).
Reinfection are back. Their second full-length album is planned for a September 2018 release. Stay tuned for more information.
