Metalheads! Hier gibt´s was auf Augen und Ohren:  https://youtu.be/11NyzZgHQIk
ATTICK DEMONS stehen für klassischen Metal ohne Firlefanz, aber auch ohne den Staub des Ewiggestrigen.
Mit einem Vierteljahrhundert Karriere auf dem Rücken spielen diese Portugiesen frisches Traditionsmetall mit gewaltigen Riffs, großen Melodien, jeder Menge Power und Tonnen von Herzblut.
Das haben auch diverse namhafte Mitstreiter schnell erkannt.
Auf den ersten Alben der ATTICK DEMONS waren hochkarätige Gäste zu hören, u.a. Paul Di´Anno, Chris Caffery und Ross The Boss.
ATTICK DEMONS traten z.B. mit W.A.S.P., Moonspell, Overkill, In Flames, Arch Enemy, Hammerfall, Sabaton, U.D.O. und Ensiferum auf und waren auf kultigen Festivals wie Metaldays, Vagos Metal Fest, Swordbrothers und dem Sabaton Open Air zu erleben.
Der neue Longplayer "DAYTIME STORIES, NIGHTMARE TALES" zeigt erneut, dass die Band ihr Herz auf dem rechten Fleck trägt.
Das Album klingt wie eine etwas härtere Version klassischer NWOBHM-Großtaten, bei der auch mal runtergestimmte Siebensaiter zum Einsatz kommen dürfen, ohne die Roots zu verwässern.
Textlich geht es um Okkultismus und die heimische Geschichte, wodurch auch einige traditionelle lokale Instrumente wie Bandolim, Cavaquinho and Braguesa eingesetzt werden.
Jetzt erscheint mit ´Hills Of Sadness´ das dritte Video.
Hier gibt´s was auf Augen und Ohren: 
https://youtu.be/11NyzZgHQIk
Das Video stammt von Jim Evgenidis von

Die digitale Single gibt´s auf allen üblichen Plattformen.
Und hier kann das Album "Daytime Stories, Nightmare Tales" vorbestellt werden:

Für BRAVE THE COLD haben sich zwei absolute Veteranen des harten Metal verbündet. Mitch Harris (NAPALM DEATH) und Dirk Verbeuren (MEGADETH) sind in der Szene nun wirklich Haushaltsnamen.
Heute gibt´s das Video zum Song ´HALLMARK OF TYRANNY´:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVwjA6WjJL8&feature=youtu.be
Und auch wenn es in dem Track um die Macht des Finanzkapitals, Zwangsimpfungen, die Gleichschaltung der Massen und eine Weltregierung geht, möchte Mitch hier vor allem einen Weckruf senden, der zu positiven Veränderungen führt.
Auch musikalisch ist ´Hallmark Of Tyranny´ eine absolute Granate geworden.
Wer denkt, Mitch Harris sei nach seinem Teilrückzug von NAPALM DEATH die Kreativität ausgegangen, wird hier umgehend eines Besseren belehrt.
Messerscharfes, brillantes Riffing trifft auf massive Grooves und eine höllische Energie, die immer wieder an die alten Grindhelden erinnert, jedoch eine frische, unverbrauchte Ebene hinzufügt und genauso vielseitig und stilistisch offen agiert wie die Kollegen.
Auch seine gesangliche Bandbreite ist beeindruckend.
Die Death-Metal- oder Grind-Schublade ist für BRAVE THE COLD zu klein, die Energie jener Szenen verlieren sie jedoch zu keiner Sekunde.
Ein besonderes Ass im Ärmel ist natürlich Drummer Dirk Verbeuren, über dessen Fähigkeiten man keine großen Worte verlieren muss und der hier hochtechnisch und zugleich völlig entfesselt alle Register zieht. Inhaltlich geht es um den Zustand der Welt, ohne die üblichen Klischees breitzutreten.
Für ausreichend Wut ist in dieser Hinsicht definitiv gesorgt.
Produziert hat "Scarcity" kein Geringerer als Logan Mader (Machine Head, Soulfly…), der hier erneut einen granatenguten Job abgeliefert hat.

Thrasher! NUCLEAR sind zurück, haben nach ihrer erfolgreichen Tour mit Abbath, Vltimas und 1349 direkt beim letzten Gig in Schweden bei Black Lodge unterschrieben und servieren Euch jetzt eine der brillantesten Thrash-Metal-Attacken des Jahres!
Wer sich noch an "Formula For Anarchy" erinnert, weiß, was hier im Anmarsch ist.
Die Chilenen stehen für eine mit Hardcore und Punk gewürzte Old-School-Variante, die mit einer unglaublichen Frische in die Ohren und Glieder knallt.
"MURDER OF CROWS" zeigt die Band vielseitiger, aber immer noch punktgenau und brutal.
Jetzt gibt´s die erste Vorab-Single ´Facing Towards You´: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sSIrnVfFis&feature=youtu.be
Die Band sagt dazu: "Es war schwierig, den ersten Song auszusuchen, den wir Euch vorstellen möchten, aber wir denken, dass ´Facing Towards You´ gut den Spirit des neuen Albums widerspiegelt. Der Track ist simpel, schnell und brutal und ein guter Vorbote für den kompletten Longplayer."
Hier könnt Ihr "Murder Of Crows" vorbestellen:

DEFECTO nehmen mit ihrer dritten Single-Veröffentlichung vom kommenden Album "DUALITY" Fahrt auf.  Die düster pumpenden Riffs gehen durch Mark und Bein.  Inhaltlich wird hier der Ozean als Metapher für das Leben verwendet. Er ist voller Schönheit, kann jedoch nicht kontrolliert werden. Wir müssen kontinuierlich probieren, den Kopf über Wasser zu halten.
Hier geht´s zur Single: https://orcd.co/tempest
Dänemark ist im Verhältnis zu seiner Einwohnerzahl ein wahres Metal-Paradies, das immer wieder vielversprechende Newcomer ausspuckt.
DEFECTO veröffentlichten ihr Debüt und waren, schwupps, Support für Acts wie METALLICA (deren Kult-Produzent Flemming Rasmussen die Band auch entdeckte) und RAMMSTEIN und landeten zudem auf einigen der größten europäischen Festivals. Millionen von Streams sind der Beweis, dass beim Publikum kein schlechter Eindruck hinterlassen wurde.
Mittlerweile haben die Herren ihr drittes Album "Duality" komplettiert.
DEFECTO stehen nach wie vor für eine fulminante Mischung aus Hell und Dunkel, aus Eingängigkeit, Progressivität und Aggressivität, die umgehend beim Hörer hängenbleibt, aber mit jedem Durchlauf neue Details offenbart.
Die DEFECTO-Erfolgskurve wird weiterhin nach oben zeigen!
Tracklist:
1. Rings of Saturn
2. The Uninvited
3. Rise
4. Paradigm of Deceit
5. All For You
6. Untamed
7. Condemned
8. Bed of Nails
9. Washed Away
10. Tempest
11. Don’t Say Goodbye

Werte Headbangende! Wer bei dem Namen FULL HOUSE BREW CREW und einem Albumtitel wie "BARE KNUCKLE" umgehend an eine zünftige Kneipenschlägerei denkt, liegt… komplett falsch.
Die Band ist eine absolute Groove-Metal-Großtat und agiert auf einem perfekt ausbalancierten Pfad aus purer Heaviness und Melodie.
FULL HOUSE BREW CREW haben längst eine eigene Handschrift entwickelt und zeigen sich auf "Bare Knuckle" entsprechend selbstbewusst.
Der Groove geht umgehend in die Gliedmaßen, die Riffs fräsen sich im Kopf fest und die Melodien sorgen für so manchen kraftvollen Ohrwurm.
Hart-aber-herzlich-Metal in höchster Vollendung.

SUFFERING SOULS "CRIES OF SILENCE"
SUFFERING SOULS wurde im Oktober 1994 von Tobias Micko (alias Lord Esgaroth) & Michael Sepulveda damals noch als Dismal gegründet. Im Zuge eines Besetzungswechsels wurde die Band im Januar 1996 in SUFFERING SOULS umbenannt. Noch im selben Jahr gab es den ersten Live-Auftritt sowie die Aufnahmen zum ersten Demo “In the Moonshadow of Despair”. 
Eigentlich sollte darauf eine EP folgen. Dazu nahm die Band noch im Dezember den Song “Dark Angels from the Funeral Abyss” auf. Die EP wurde allerdings nie veröffentlicht. So sollte es bis 1998 dauern, ehe SUFFERING SOULS ihren ersten offiziellen Output veröffentlichten. Das Demo 
„When Silence Cries Eternally” erschien, limitiert auf 666 Exemplaren. Kurz danach folgten erneut Aufnahmen für eine geplante EP. Auch diese EP wurde aus finanziellen Gründen vom Label nie veröffentlicht. 1999 entstanden drei Songs im Majestic Nightrealm Studio für die MCD “Cries of Silence”. Anschließend folgten einige Live-Auftritte bis es die Band im April 2000 erneut ins Studio zog. Dieses Mal allerdings, um endlich das Debütalbum aufzunehmen. “Twilight Ripping Souls Apart” erschien bei Painkiller Records aus Belgien. 2003 veröffentlichten Darkwind Records das zweite Album der Band unter dem Titel “Incarnated Perfection”.
In der Folge kam es zu weiteren Line-Up-Wechseln, die dazu führten, dass Mastermind Lord Esgaroth ab 2004 alleine an neuem Songmaterial arbeitete und Anfang 2009 bei Schwarzdorn Production unterschrieb. Ende 2009 folgte dann das dritte Album „Sadistic Goat Complex“, das bei Fans und Presse gleichermaßen gut aufgenommen wurde. 2018 erschien mit „In Synergy Obscene“ das vierte Album, welches den positiven Trend fortsetzte und erneut via Schwarzdorn Production erschien.
Im Jahr 2019 feierte SUFFERING SOULS das 25-jährige Jubiläum. Lord Esgorath und Schwarzdorn Production planten zu diesem Zeitpunkt bereits ein spezielles Album zum Jubiläum, das schon mit Spannung erwartet wird und 2020 endlich erscheint …
… und die Spannung ist gerechtfertigt. SUFFERING SOULS  erwecken den Geist des Black-Metal-Undergrounds der frühen Neunziger und liefern 11 Songs inklusive einem Live-Song aus dem Jahr 1996. Roh, kalt und kompromisslos gibt sich „True Godfucking Soulblight“ der Vergangenheit hin und bietet Material aus den Jahren 1996 bis 2000, die teilweise bisher nur auf limitierten Demo Tapes zu finden waren.
Line-Up:
Tobias Mico – Vocals, clean Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Strings, Drums and programming

Ljubljana’s underground legends NOCTIFERIA, since the beginning (1997) have been spreading their unique style of the Slovenian Extreme Metal Movement. Few could predict what the band and its members would mean for the whole scene in the years to come. Today, just as it sometimes seems that the artists have drained all genres of originality and that all the new musical styles have already been discovered, here comes NOCTIFERIA, bringing something fresh, a style that is uniquely theirs. NOCTIFERIA have toured Europe and UK with bands like In Flames, Hypocrisy, Mayhem, Samael, Marduk etc. Toured China couple of times so far and performed at various European festivals (at Wacken Open Air 2015 as first Slovenian band ever).

The current UNDERTAKERS line-up features longtime members Enrico Giannone (vocals) and Stefano Casanica (guitar), along with Marco Mastrobuono (bass) and Demian Campora (drums) for live performances.
UNDERTAKERS were formed way back in 1991 and throughout their career they have had the opportunity to share the stage with Napalm Death, Suffocation, Malevolent Creation, Vader, Cannibal Corpse and Vital Remains, among many others. When for most Italian groups playing abroad was pretty much a dream, UNDERTAKERS completed three European tours and played festivals such as Brutal Assault and Dynamo Open Air in the first part of their career.
UNDERTAKERS started as a classic death metal band, but over the years their sound has become a frenetic and brutal mix of grind, death metal and hardcore.

OSSUARY ANEX - "OBSCURANTISM APOGEE"
Label : Xtreem Music
Formats : Digital | CD
Genre : Brutal Death Metal
Line-up:
Kirill – vocals
Max – guitars
Chiba – guitars
Azamath – bass
Sergey – drums
Hailing from Russia,
OSSUARY ANEX
was created by Max in 2008 on the ruins of DAEMON (Demonic Death Metal). The Line-up changed often during the early years, so the band evolved slowly.
Debut album “Awakening” was released in 2012 on SFC Records and demonstrated a primitive Death Metal with Slamming vibes. After that OSSUARY ANEX did a Russian tour with DEFEATED SANITY. Kirill joined as lead singer in 2014 and he was a new impetus in the development of the band.
OSSUARY ANEX recorded their second album “Mutilation Through Prayer” in 2016 which was released on Lord of the Sick Recordings. Now, in many ways, the band returns to the origins with new stuff, to what they did in DAEMON, but on a new level.
During the first half of 2018, OSSUARY ANEX recorded a new EP entitled “Holy Blasphemition” and got signed with Xtreem Music in July of the same year, for an immediate release of this EP on September 26th that was presented on an European tour from 8th to 22nd of September with DEVANGELIC, ANTROPOFAGUS and RELICS OF HUMANITY.
In 2019, OSSUARY ANEX wrote and recorded a new album entitled “Obscurantism Apogee” which was finished in spring 2020 for its release in September 22 nd again through Xtreem Music.

Presenting the vibe of the melodic and progressive black metal music of the old days, all the music of Garth Arum is inspired in dreams and a deep voyage towards the within. The place where is located our own inner-secret-garden, which lays forgotten. This is the place where the fire flowers grow, handled by demiurges. Fire flowers are the source of creation and depending on who uses them, it will have different results. A standard person would just change their dimension, but the most powerful being would create a new universe.
First “die-hard” edition of “The Fireflowers Tale”, the marvelous second full-length album by NHT (As Light Dies, Deemtee, Aversio Humanitatis, Keltika Hispanna...) and his most personal project, Garth Arum, five long and highly elaborated songs playing a kind of avantgarde black metal with symphonic touches which are pure and simple creativity... a must for fans of bands like Arcturus, Ved Buens Ende, Dødheimsgard, Code or Fleurety...
This “die-hard” edition, limited to only 50 hand-numbered copies, comes presented in a luxury 6-panel oversized digifile pressed on exclusive matte lamination paper, includes extended artwork from the standard edition, a kind of printed “paperbag” to protect the CD, external cardboard slipcase, 8-page booklet and free album digital download card...
“The Fireflowers Tale” will be released by Darkness Within (a Darkwoods division) in jewelcase limited to 150 copies worldwide and die-hard edition presented in a luxury 6-panel oversized digifile with extras limited to only 50 hand-numbered copies.”

Realms Of Chaos -is an extreme death metal band from the heart of Europe – Slovakia. 
Established in 2015, then the rehearsal stage begun. Band line-up consisted from the leader and founder of the band Martinus, 
joined by his fellow drummer Peter „Koľak“ from their previous act The Infinite Within, then joined by a friend and guitarist Jakub.
In 2017 the band started playing live shows across all of it's home country - Slovakia. In the same year band self-released „Spawn Promo“ 
which was 2 song promo CD with only 100 pieces hand made by all the band members. 
At this stage Realms Of Chaos was looking for the bass player, since they were lacking bass player from the beginning.
 In the following year, the band continued in their conquest and played shows regulary, still looking for bass player. 
In 2018 the preparations for their debut album begun and in September, guitars were being tracked by Martinus. 
By the end of the year, bass player Ondrej (also playing in the band Dementor) joined the band and the search for the missing piece was over.
In 2019 bass player Ondrej joined forces with the band on the stages and quickly became an asset with his bass playing skills. 
During 2019 band was still working on their debut record now with the help of Gabe Seeber (The Kennedy Veil, Alterbeast, Decrepit Birth) 
from USA who recorded all the drum tracks. 
In the beginning of 2020 the debut record „The Seed“ was completed and during the first wave of COVID crisis they started to look for a label. 
During July of this year, they parted ways with guitarist Jakub. 
There will be a new guitar player replacing Jakub’s role in a few months, his name will be revealed after his first live show.
In the summer of 2020 REALMS OF CHAOS signed to DOWNFALL RECORDS for the release of the debut album - "THE SEEED" in late 2020!
The album will feature 8 extreme death metal tracks, which will left no one at rest. 42 minutes of fast, technical and atmospheric death metal, 
that is Realms Of Chaos in a nutshell.

ACT OF DENIAL are currently in the studio, finishing their debut album 'Negative', including 10 songs.
Guitarist/lyricist Luger:
"The finished songs are already in the process of mixing in Fredman studio. Me and Voi decided not to focus on one genre so there will be tunes for every metal fan. We're doing this mostly for ourselves and the songs we write are the songs we love to listen at home, hoping they will reach also to other people, as to ourselves." 
Lead guitarist/songwriter Voi Cox adds:
"We were always influenced by swedish style and sound when we were kids that's why it is a big honor to us to have Bjorn from Soilwork on this album, also Fredrik Nordström from Fredman Studio who basically invented that sound. We grew up listening to Soilwork, At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity, In Flames and ofc Death, and that's why we're so excited that Steve is in this project, too. So we are very much influenced by those bands but that doesn't mean that our songs will sound like that and you will hear all that in our debut album."

As rich as we may be in gold and silver, as warmly surrounded by the comforts of love and companionship, ahead of us there is but the poverty and cold solitude of the tomb. The spectre of our demise haunts the periphery of our vision with every step we take, whispers promises of decay as each frittered second slips through our grasp. The prescience of death is a shawl of ice about our shoulders even beneath the heat of the summer sun. The end is ever near and as loudly and vivaciously as you live, you cannot drown out the eternal, empty silence of the void.

ELLIPSISM is the sense of sadness and melancholy that accompanies intimations of one’s own mortality, the quiet heartbreak that comes with the realisation of all the futures you will never see. It’s also the perfect title for the full length debut album from Sheffield blackened post metal sorcerers of sorrow, BA’AL. Having forged their sound in the fires of a Bloodstock festival appearance, live shows with Downfall Of Gaia, Conan, Gnaw Their Tongues, Fen and more, two EPs and the towering Thy Sorrow single, recorded at Russ Russell’s Parlour Studios (At The Gates, Dimmu Borgir, Napalm Death etc) the time has come for Ellipsism. The unmistakeable, impassioned howl of Hecate Enthroned vocalist Joe Stamps tears through the suffocating shadows of broken hymns like ‘Father, The Sea, The Moon’ and soft, deep waves of cruel despair wash around your heart on ‘III-II-MMIII’ and album closer ‘Rosalia’. This is an album that will swallow you, engulfing you in the fear-tinged sadness whose name it bears. At times raging fiercely at the futility of the human condition at others, simply desolate...Ellipsism is a powerful maelstrom of dark emotion, touched with moments of remarkable beauty, that will leave no listener unaffected.
Ellipsism was recorded in March of this cursed year with Joe Clayton (Pijn, Wren, Leeched etc) and will be released by the rapidly rising champions of the extreme, the individual and the creative, Clobber Records, on October 30th. This is an album to take note of, to be grateful for, to sweep up and clutch to your heart as it inspires reflection and shakes the illusionary foundations of existence.

German dark hardcore outfit KRATZER will release their new album “...ALLES LIEGT IN SCHERBEN” on 29th October 2020 via 7 Degrees Records / 783 Punx.
Today, No Echo is hosting the official premiere of a new track from the record: listen to "Error"
https://www.noecho.net/features/kratzer-german-band
The first single, "Staub", is still available on YouTube and Bandcamp.
“...Alles liegt in Scherben” (“all is lying in cullets”) is the band's first full length album. Formed in 2012, KRATZER blend influences ranging from Swedish crust/d-beat bands, US hardcore/punk and extreme metal.
Although comparisons to From Ashes Rise, Victims and The Secret are understandable and locatable, the band's signature blend of raw hardcore with the texture of extreme metal is here highlighted by the consummate hand of experience, giving stunning credence to the riff, the song and the meaning.
After a Split LP with Greek Grinders KVAZAR and a 4-way-Split 12” some time later they frequently got on the road and have played about a 100 shows all over Germany - with bands such as Fredag 13:e, Parasight and Yacøpsae, including tours with rha., Vladimir Harkonen and Sarkast.
During that time KRATZER were able to consolidate their reputation as a powerful live act and their musical style and make it a sound of their very own. Singer Marché’s pissed off screaming in his mother tongue German, makes one feel the anger and despair sticking in every word. Combined with the tight riffs and fast d-beats, gloomy breaks and metallic leads wrapped up in a thick wall-of-sound production, the outcome has become an absolutely dark and heavy yet hard rocking piece of music and an angry comment on the world we live in.

01. Concrete

It  was formed in 2017 by guitarist kostas Kalampokas who, after attending Berklee College of Music, created a recording studio business in his hometown, Ioannina.

It is a concept album based on
H.P. Lovecraft's writings and the Cthulhu Mythos he created, but at its core it deals with socio-political issues.

DARK RITES - "THE DARK HYMNS"
In The Dark Hymns., DARK RITES  shape their music with the highest proficiency in unrelenting-intensity phrasal-riff death metal that vary its texture and pauses inertia long enough to ram a militant and uncompromising aesthetic down the throats of their listeners.
Rippling textures of chords thrust home like a battlefield execution form the raw skin from which this band twist phrases that contort, transform and rediscover their origins as they mutate over the course of a song.  
DARK RITES transforms a handful of notes into a spindly arcology of ideas which clarify in a resolving riff.
DARK RITES members:
Wojtek Widuch - Guitars, Bass
Randy Kaciak - Drums
Kole Cook "Blooded" - Vocals 
Tracks:
1.Divine Duplicity
2.Goliath, the coward
3.In Stasis
4.Moira
5.Scars
6.Serena
7.Shadow God
8.The Devils Heroes

Myriad as it may be, the human condition is entrenched with an unending flurry of major and minor setbacks, many of which influence art, and specifically music. With their upcoming Plague Hymns EP, American black metal band Sarcoptes draw a similar parallel- their EP being a prelude to a visceral second album is not very different from the many telling smaller signs that point to apocalyptic disaster. The band's refreshing incorporation of thrash-y elements and synth bits makes this a 'must-listen' for lovers of extreme metal doused with eccentricity. You can check out the first track that's on Bandcamp and YouTube
SARCOPTES  - “PLAGUE HYMNS”
Genre - Black/Thrash Metal 
Release Date - October 2nd, 2020
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Emperor, Sathanas, Nifelheim, Aura Noir, Destroyer 666, Immortal, Absu, Abbath, early Satyricon
Following hard on the heels of the highly acclaimed debut full length album that showcased Sarcoptes' ingenuity of blending thrash and death metal influences effortlessly in an epic black metal template, on this new EP they take things up a notch and exhibit renewed passion and flair further cementing their unique yet highly enjoyable sound. The two songs here are terrific examples of brilliant songwriting that weaves together myriad elements without losing cohesion or continuity. The result is absolutely thrilling and rivetting; the songs don't seem to overstay their welcome despite being long and continue their epic and intense onslaught without ever waning. This EP serves as a perfect precursor to the upcoming full length album that is in the works. If this is anything to go by, the future of US black metal is in safe hands.

HEDON (SWE) started in the break of 2012-13, and released an album 2013 on their own, “Summon the Demons”. During the following years they had a break due to different circumstances. Late 2019 they returned once again and recorded some new material. Compared to “Summon the Demons” the music was more raw and filthy – exactly as they wanted the previous release to be. "In Blasphemy Reborn" will decend upon you this year (2020)!
A mix of Death/Thrash/Black! FALL049 -Will be available as DT/CD/LP/MC... (In co-operation with Hedon/Pagan Art)

SCIMITAR - "SHADOWS OF MAN" 
Label : Self-released
Formats : Digital | CD
Release date: 23/08/2019
Scimitar is a metal band hailing from the island capital of Victoria, BC, Canada. Combining influences from melodic-death, folk, and black metal, Scimitar features uncompromisingly heavy drums, high-rollicking fingerstyle bass, dual-guitar-driven harmonies, and gruff yet sharply enunciated harsh vocals that deliver lyrics based in historical fiction and fantasy.
Since 2008 they have firmly cemented their boots in the western Canadian music scene opening for the likes of Ensiferum, SepticFlesh, and Arkona, playing at festivals including Absolute Underground’s Rising Scum Fest, Vancouver Island Metal Festival and Armstrong Metal Fest, and releasing two full-length albums, ‘Black Waters’ in 2010 and ‘Shadows of Man’ in 2019.
This musical package is manifested live through blistering energy and sword-edged focus on the audience. Most of Scimitar’s chronicle remains blank, as they have much more to offer the world of metal.

Swedish post-black metal project ANA ARGAN LIST has inked a deal with Finland's Ground Media Group for the release of its debut self-titled EP, which will be available in physical format on November 1st, 2020. The EP is also available for full streaming at Black Metal Promotion Youtube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpnMksJXnz0
Ana Argan List was formed in early 2020 as the solo project of Edvin Johansson (Orngòth). The band delivers emotional, atmospheric and aggressive music, combining powerful chants with melancholic and wistful melodies to create epic atmospheric soundscapes of the northern landscapes. Johansson comments: «The project wasn't intentional. It started from the anxiety and depression. I try to stay away from mundane citylife when I want to create. I look for inspiration in nature, like forest walks. There I can self reflect and get inspired, especially if it's raining. Ana Argan List is a swedish proverb, that translates roughly to ”Creeping suspicion”, which I thought was perfect for the feeling I'm trying to portray.»
Ground Media Group's founder Samuli adds: «When I heard these tracks in the first place I was sold right away. The title track tells everything. It's full of emotion! The distant raw vocals, huge chants and the atmosphere reminds me of the legendary Summoning but done totally on his own way. The tracks are epic and give you a shiver. ”Siarens Misstag” doesn't have any vocals, but it paints you nordic landscapes and huge emotions. Just pure perfection and I'm really happy and proud that we have signed a contract with Ana Argan List!»
The artwork was created by Sissela Lewitzki.

Label: Volcano Records
Genre: Symphonic Metal

Ivory Moon was born in the summer of 2000, in Italy, and May 2002 saw the first Ivory Moon promo cd being released. In early 2004, the debut album, “On The Edge of Time” was recorded and released by Battle Hymns Records. In late 2005, the line-up underwent some changes, and the band started to work on new songs and ideas for the next album. During 2006, Ivory Moon took residence at Temple of Noise Studios in Rome, to record “Human Nature”. The album was tracked, mixed and mastered by Christian Ice and released by Ulterium Records. “Dark Time” was released in 2012 by Spider rock promotion and was followed by a promotion tour with Freedom Call. The New album 'Lunar Gateaway', coming out on October 2nd 2020, via Volcano Records and Promotion, was mixed and mastered in Temple of Noise studios, with a renewed line-up made up of old and new friends: Patrizio Izzo and Loretta Venditti voices, Andrea Campisano and Fabrizio Zucchini guitars, Fabrizio Sclano bass, Fabio Bonuglia Keyboards and Emiliano Cantiano drums.
