BRUTAL VISION VOL. 3 - der Herbst wird heiß! 'CORE IN THE NAME OF LOVE' - unter diesem Motto startet NOIZGATE Records im Herbst 2017 eine dritte Auflage der hauseigenen Samplerreihe BRUTAL VISION. Mit BRUTAL VISION VOL. 3 will das Bielefelder Label die brutalste Vision teilen, die man sich aktuell vorstellen kann: Ein friedliches Miteinander!

Und als besonderes Bonbon: Nagelneues, bisher unveröffentlichtes Material von BURDEN OF LIFE, ALL WILL KNOW, MAJOR ERD und ALLIGATOR RODEO!

Die griechischen Thrasher von EXARSIS, deren neues Album „NEW WAR ORDER“ ab dem 20. Oktober in den Läden stehen wird, haben mit „General Guardiance“inen Videoclip von ihrem 4. Longplayer veröffentlicht. Der Clip wurde von Athina Tousia (  http://vimeo.com/athinatousia ) produziert und gibt einen perfekten Ausblick auf das, was den geneigten Hörer auf „New War Order“ erwartet: feinsten klassischen Thrashmetal!
„New War Order“ wurde in den D-Studios in Athen aufgenommen und von Mike Karpathiou gemixt und gemastert. Das Album enthält 10 Songs bei einer Spielzeit von knapp 40 Minuten. Ab dem 23. September sind Exarsis auf Tour mit Onslaught und Artillery, auf welcher es das Album bereits zu kaufen gibt.

b.o.s.c.h. - auf Tour mit Stahlmann | neues Album :
Die raue See, der böige Wind, das Reizklima:
Möglicherweise sind Menschen von der Nordseeküste tatsächlich robuster als Bewohner aus anderen Teilen der Republik.
Während im Breisgau die meisten Sonnenstunden gezählt oder am Bodensee der Sekt ganzjährig in freier Natur geschlürft werden kann, lebt man in Wilhelmshaven unter klimatisch deutlich harscheren Bedingungen.
Auf b.o.s.c.h. hat dieses zweifelsohne abgefärbt.
Die kompromisslose Härte der Band, ihre unverwechselbare Mischung aus Metal, Punk, Rock, Hardcore, Thrash und elektronischen Versatzstücken, spiegelt sich auch in ihrem künstlerischen Credo wider:
„Wir machen Krach!“ erklärt Gitarrist Christian ´Ledde` Heil und bringt die Philosophie seiner Gruppe auf den Punkt: „Bei uns wird oldschool gerockt, bis die Hose flattert.“
Heil beschreibt damit das Bühnenkonzept von b.o.s.c.h., das statt durch übertriebenen Technik-Schickschnack mit vorgeglühten Röhren-Amps besticht und von einem dermaßen erbarmungslos marschierenden Schlagzeug/Bass-Takt angetrieben wird, wie man es sonst nur in der Stahlindustrie von Hammer und Amboss kennt.
In November und Dezember sind b.o.s.c.h. mit Stahlmann bei folgenden Shows unterwegs:
10.11.2017 (DE) Lübeck, Rider's Café
14.12.2017 (DE) Wuppertal,  LCB
27.12.2017 (DE) Göttingen,  Exil
28.12.2017 (DE) Kaiserslautern, Kammgarn
29.12.2017 (DE) Ingolstadt,  Eventhalle Westpark 
Es sind diese eindrucksvollen Parameter, die nicht nur für b.o.s.c.h.-Konzerte, sondern auch für ihr neues Album "Fleischwolf" gelten.
Die Scheibe erscheint am 13. Oktober 2017 über Laute Helden/SPV und könnte eine Ära einleiten, in der harte deutsche Musik nicht mehr automatisch nur mit Rammstein, Oomph! oder Megaherz gleichgesetzt wird.

Das Berliner Szenelabel Folter Records begrüßt weiteren Zuwachs. Die finnischen Black Metaller AUTHOR haben jüngst einen Vertrag unterschrieben. Ihr Debütalbum „Lopun Alku“ haben AUTHOR erst Anfang 2017 veröffentlicht, der Nachfolger und Label-Einstand soll im Frühling/Sommer 2018 folgen. Die Aufnahmen werden im ersten Quartal 2018 stattfinden. Die Band selbst gibt aber schon einen kurzen Blick in die Zukunft:
„Expect nothing but a massive slap of a cold and harsh Finnish black metal, proudly continuing the path we draw with our debut album ‚Lopun Alku‘.“
Live in Deutschlang gibt es AUTHOR übrigens beim UNDER THE BLACK SUN 2018 zu sehen.

BLACKLIST LTD. -  “STILL LIMITED”
Genre: Death Metal
Label: Kernkraftritter Records
Vertrieb: Alive
Eine “Zusammenstellung von Personen, die von einer Behörde oder einer Organisation als verdächtig oder nicht vertrauenswürdig angesehen werden”. So lautet die Definition einer Blacklist. Diese Definition trifft aber im eigentlichen Sinne so gar nicht auf Blacklist Ltd. zu.
Es handelt sich zwar durchaus um „eine Zusammenstellung von Personen“, diesem Quintett kann man allerdings sehr wohl vertrauen. Dies gilt vor allem für Fans von modernem und groovigem Metal, denn genau diesen spielen Blacklist Ltd. schon seit ihrer Gründung 2004. Seitdem hat die Band drei Vertrauensbeweise in Form von einer EP und zwei Alben veröffentlicht, die auf viel Gegenliebe stießen. 
Auf dem neuen Longplayer “still limited” wird viel Wert auf harte, kompakte und eingängige Arrangements gelegt. Die melodische Seite kommt auch nicht zu kurz und verhilft den Songs zu hohem Wiedererkennungswert. Dabei schafft die Band eine dynamische Basis für den Gesang, der darauf sein Spektrum von clean bis hin zu aggressiv voll entfaltet.
Aufgenommen und gemixt wurde „still limited“ in Goslar von Ronny Balnus und Tim Pascharat. Michael Schwabe übernahm das Mastering im renommierten Monoposto Tonstudio in Düsseldorf (u.a. Die Toten Hosen, Broilers…).
Mit dem neuen Album hat Blacklist Ltd. nun also einen weiteren Vertrauensbeweis im Gepäck. Dabei ist das Ziel, auf Festivals und Konzerten weiteres Vertrauen zu gewinnen, immer fest im Blick. Wirkt das verdächtig?http://www.kernkraftritter-records.de/                                                                                                
GRAI kündigen zum Auftakt ihrer Europa-Tour neue Single 'DONYA' an!
GRAI melden sich zurück - und zwar sowohl live und in Farbe, als auch mit neuer Single!  Das Quintett aus der Republik Tatarstan im Osten Russlands steht für eine facettenreiche Mischung aus filigranen Folkloreklängen und druckvollem Metal: GRAI machen Folk-Metal, temperamentvoll, berauschend und so rasant, wie gefühlvoll. Der einzigartige Mix aus 'klassischen' Metal-Elementen und filigranen Folkloreklängen lässt längst die Herzen einer riesengroßen Fanbase höher schlagen. Europaweit!
Ab dem 16.09. haben die Fans wieder Gelegenheit, Irina (Gesang), Ruzel (Gitarre), Aliya (Flöte, Dudelsack, Gesang), Yuri (Bass, Growls, Kaljuka, Maultrommel) und Andrey (Drums) live zu erleben: Zusammen mit SATANAKOZEL und ANABIOZ besteigen GRAI den Tourbus. Insgesamt 20 Gigs in 11 Ländern stehen bis zum 11.10.2017 auf dem Tourplan (s.u.) - darunter auch zwei Termine in Deutschland!
Im Gepäck haben die Fünf auch ihre neue Single: 'DONYA' erscheint am 29.09.2017 (VÖ) als Digitalrelease bei NOIZGATE Records.
Mit 'DONYA' zeigen GRAI abermals ihre Talente in den schönen Künsten. Traditionelle Instrumente und klarer, mehrstimmiger, weiblicher Harmoniegesang, unterstützt von modernem, melodischem Metal - GRAI zeigen sich hier von ihrer besten Seite: Flöten und Gesang übernehmen den melodiösen Teil, von Powerchords getragene Metalriffs sorgen für die nötige Härte. Textlich ist 'DONYA' allerdings ein eher verzweifelter Song – mit einem leider nach wie vor traurig aktuellen Thema: Die Geschichte des Mädchens Donya, die von ihrer Mutter ihrem Willen entgegen mit einem alten, hässlichen Mann verheiratet werden soll, den sie nicht liebt...

DEADFREIGHT OF SOUL -  “TORTURED PUPPETS”
Genre: Death Metal
Label: Kernkraftritter Records
Vertrieb: Alive
VÖ: 20.10.2017
Seit 2007 gibt sich die Band Deadfreight of Soul größte Mühe das Publikum für die Dauer ihres Bühnenspektakels den Alltag vergessen zu lassen. Die Jungs wissen um ihren Namen und dieser ist auch das erklärte Programm: Die kraftvoll und energiegeladen vorgetragene Musik lässt die Ängste und Sorgen, diese „Laster der Seele“ der Zuhörer, in den Hintergrund treten.
Mit einer Mischung aus klassischen Metal-Zutaten wie Doublebase- und Blastbeats, die jedoch auch in virtuose und komplexe Rhythmen münden, legt die Augsburger Death Metal Formation die Fundamente ihrer Songs. Hinzu gesellen sich lebendige Melodien, die immer wieder von harten, dreckigen Gitarrenriffs durchbrochen werden. Zuletzt die charakteristischen Vocals, welche sich aus Shouts, Growls, Screams und Pig Squeals in ihrer aggressivsten, brutalsten Form zusammensetzen.
Mit zahlreichen Gigs und diversen Bandwettbewerben, bei denen stets das Finale erreicht werden konnte, erscheint schon 2010 die erste E.P., die den Bandnamen „Deadfreight of Soul“ trägt. Es folgt die selbstorganisierte „Infinity of Resistance Tour 2011“ durch Süddeutschland und die „Human Flesh Course Tour“ 2015 durch ganz Deutschland. Ein weiteres Highlight war das Metal-Festival „The day the Dead Walked 2013“ in Augsburg, welches jährlich wiederholt wird.
Mit ihrer professionellen Promo E.P. „Ophois“ (Mai 2014), liefert das Ensemble bereits einen Vorgeschmack auf ihr Debütalbum „Tortured Puppets“, welches im Winter 2017 veröffentlicht wird. Man darf gespannt sein, was die Band mit ihrer ersten großen Platte liefern wird und sollte sich den Namen „Deadfreight of Soul“ für die Zukunft merken.

PARTY.SAN METAL OPEN AIR 2018  : Leute, endlich! Nach einer kurzen Verschnaufpause melden wir uns in voller Stärke zurück. Wie ihr sicher mitbekommen habt, läuft unser Ticketvorverkauf schon auf Hochtouren. Ihr könnt noch immer Frühbuchershirts + Ticket und diverse interessante Bundles abgreifen. Beeilt euch! Heute präsentieren wir euch gleich zwei Neuzugänge die unser Billing 2018 verstärken. Wir hoffen ihr feiert die Bands wie wir es tun.
ooking-News:
THE COMMITTEE : Namenlos, vermummt - aber dennoch nicht gesichtslos: Die international besetzte Band zählt zu den außergewöhnlichsten Black-Metal-Vertretern unserer Zeit, begeistert die Szene als wahre Songwritingwunder in der Schnittmenge zwischen massivem Black Metal und schwerem Doom - und hat ihre überragenden Bühnenqualitäten bereits mehrfach bewiesen. Bislang hat es die Truppe auf zwei starke Studioalben - "Power Through Unity" und "Memorandum Occultus" - gebracht. Anchecken!
Nein, die Hansestadt Hamburg ist seit der Jahrtausendwende nicht gerade mit zahlreichem Metal-Nachwuchs gesegnet: Knödeliger Hard Rock-Kram nebst jaulenden Epigonen, wohin das Auge blickt. Da tut eine Band wie ENDSEEKER und ihr mächtiger, Schweden-Tod-beeinflusster Death Metal doppelt gut. Dieser Tage erscheint das bärenstarke Debütalbum "Flesh Hammer Prophecy" und der Weg der Nordlichter geht steil nach oben - und auf die Zeltbühne unseres Festivals.
Beste Grüße Johannes C. Schulz

D.D.R. # 023 ARROGANZ - Primitiv TAPE
Death Praising Tunes From Germany! 2008, in the dirty depths of Cottbus/Germany, the duo ARROGANZ started up to exhale their own infernal visions of blackenend death metal.
3 years are gone since “Tod & Teufel”, the last ARROGANZ album came out. Now the time has come, to dismise the next black Souls' sounds, called simply "Primitiv".
But no, it doesn't sound primitive or simple, here waiting 6 new songs & with no doubt ARROGANZ' best written material so far.
It would be just to easy to call it Death Metal, Black Metal or blackened Death Metal…whatsoever-it's more than this.
The work of Timo Rotten & the legendary Mister van der Lubbe is crucial for the sound,
  intensity and wickedness again on "Primitiv"!
DEFYING DANGER RECORDS can bring this nice musically crossbreed to your town as limited edition of 300 handnumbered units Tapeversion.
The D.D.R. Tape Series # 023 will be run out on darkest day of the month and so we look forward to the 10th october 2017! 
Pre-sale with 10% discount is running now!

German Waste Town Grind Tornado ABJURED are around since 2005 in the underground scene and have managed to gain a lot of attention with their previous releases with TRIGGER and the stunning debut “ Life You Know…” from 2011.
2017 after 3 long years of waiting, the irrepressible duo Ron & Eric has finally recorded new material for their 2nd full length album named "Absolutist", at the Basement Palace Studio.
"Absolutist" contains 11 Waste Town Doomed Grind Traxx in a runningtime of about 38 minutes and
  will be out on 12th december 2017 as Defying Danger Records Anniversary Release number D.D.R. #025.

Earlier this week, two more international drummers were announced for the upcoming DEMONSTEALER release - Krimh of SEPTICFLESH, ex-DECAPITATED and Romain of BENIGHTED, NECROPHAGIST. This is by far the most ambitious lineup for any release here in the sub-continent. Talking about the new material, Romain said -
"Sahil (aka DEMONSTEALER) sent me his new song without any drums, and first listen, I already had many ideas in my head!! That's always a good sign, this is inspiring stuff, I'm looking forward to this collaboration!"
Prior to this, two other drummers namely Kevin Paradis and David Diepold were announced who also have the honour of playing with the mighty BENIGHTED. This unique strategy goes hand-in-hand with the ongoing crowdfunding campaign which has now reached 85% of the target. The Pledgemusic link can be found HERE. 
So with four drummers playing on different songs each, expectations are high as to how much of their individual styles will rub off on DEMONSTEALER's music, which is predominantly death metal. The new material is said to be much faster and heavier, and the samples that are posted by Sahil on the official page sound very promising indeed. 
DEMONSTEALER is the solo project of Sahil Makhija who is the founding member of one of India's biggest bands,  DEMONIC RESURRECTION . He dons multiple roles and the music too is completely in his own vision with ample experimentation and collaborations. The previous DEMONSTEALER album received much praise and saw the release of several official videos in its support. The new album is said to be more death metal and with a number of exemplary musicians slated to be a part of it, it's highly anticipated around the world. 
DEMONSTEALER have also recruited the services of renowned Indian artist Reuben Bhattacharya (Visual Amnesia), who did the breathtaking artwork of the latest DEMONIC RESURRECTION album which you can see below. 
DEMONSTEALER (India/International) - 'THIS BURDEN IS MINE'
Genre - Progressive/Experimental Death Metal
Release Date - March 26th, 2016
Record Label - Demonstealer Records (India)
For fans of - NILE, SOILWORK, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, BENIGHTED, ABORTED, DEMONIC RESURRECTION, REPTILIAN DEATH, ADE
Sahil Makhija aka DEMONSTEALER, helming bands like DEMONIC RESURRECTION and REPTILIAN DEATH, teams up with none other than George Kollias of NILE fame on drums, to release a groundbreaking album in 'This Burden is Mine'. With a vast experience and multiple instrument proficiency, DEMONSTEALER, on the new album create music that surpasses simple genre categorization, for this is a new blend of styles from all over - from death metal to thrash metal, laced with elegant and stunning atmospheric parts, propelled by the world class drumming of the legend George Kollias. This is a new epic coming from the biggest names in not just the region but also worldwide, and this could very well be a tour de force, the album we've all been waiting for. The album showcases rare maturity, with DEMONSTEALER indulging in melodic solos and accentuating them with moments of clean vocals. This is easily the most ambitious release to come out from these parts and it's imperative to give 'This Burden of Mine' a check.

Hi – Chris and Paul here from Imperative PR, letting you know that two of our darkest and most terrifying campaigns are about to come to an end. This is your last chance to check out the symphonic black metal brilliance of FORMICARIUS’ BLACK MASS RITUAL and the nightmarish horrors of Tele.S.THERION’S LUZIFERS ABSCHIED
 Black Mass Ritual gathers up all that is great about black metal - the atmosphere, the intent, the velocity, the savagery, the dark beauty, the drama, the overwhelming power – and breathes new life into its decayed lungs, infusing it with a raging, unholy vigour. The sheer quality of songs like ‘May The Rats Eat Your Eyes’ with its soul searing guitar work, the sprawling majesty of ‘Master Of Past And Present’, the terrifying magnificence of ‘A Requiem For The Bloodborn’; all mark Black Mass Ritual as a debut of immense, unquestionable potency. The reaction from the metal press to Black Mass Ritual has been fantastic, as illustrated by the selection of quotes below…
You may have immersed yourself in the blackest of metals for decades. You may feel you have embraced the sonic distillation of evil. You may have walked the deepest catacombs of black metal’s kingdom of fire and shadows, searching out the harshest creations by the most intimidating of the face painted disciples of darkness. Not one moment of all those years, searching in the black, has prepared you for Luzifers Abschied, the latest invitation to madness from Tele.S.Therion... Created in collusion with some of the world’s most renowned practitioners of jazz, free improvisation, avant-garde and contemporary classical music, this album explores the void between art and noise and uncovers the essence of evil within the darkness. Those who have dared to enter the void have not been left unmoved…

Twelve new tracks of relentless hammering will prove once and for all that these guys mean serious harm and they have the armory to guarantee maximum carnage!
"Apocalyptic" is the band's fourth full-length and you can easily hear that they have found the chosen path of the swedish legacy but also that they proceed on their own terms at the end of the day. This is a journey into the chamber of old school metal where genres were sill not cast in stone and the passion was still the primal goal.

Acclaimed Japanese label Weird Truth Productions brings you a new release of Finnish doom metal masters PROFETUS. Although originally released in 2009, this gem of a release has been remastered by Dan Lowndes of Resonance Sound Studio which is known for its work with bands like BLOOD INCANTATION, SIGH, CRUCIAMENTUM, etc. Expect sonorous, plodding doom from the depths of human misery, wonderfully expressed using sparse notes and a despondent atmosphere.

Along with this magnificent debut, the label has included their first demo and even a live track as bonus. This is the epitome of funeral doom and all that's special about it.

Seattle (WA) - Sticking its head out of the Riff Lair, BELDAM, the Virginia-based sludge metal band is reforming, relocating to Seattle in October 2017 and releasing new album PASUNG on Horror Pain Gore Death Productions in early 2018.  The band has also parted ways with its original bassist.
Sophomore album Pasung, the second release on Mike Juliano's powerhouse metal label HPGD Productions, was recorded at The Bomb Shelter in Nashville and engineered by the extraordinary Drew Carroll, the man who also recorded BELDAM's original five-song demo released in 2015.
"This album represents a much sludgier sound," said Grahm Reynolds, lead guitarist and songwriter. "We were really intentional in taking a full year to record and refine the songs for Pasung. There was heavy pre-production and a significant focus on tracking the record," added Reynolds. "The final result really delivers on who we are as a band."
Clocking in at just over 50 minutes of rocket-fueled, paint peeling sludge, Pasung, captures the best of BELDAM, while positioning the band to take it to the next level in Seattle. Stay tuned!
BELDAM released debut album Still the Wretched Linger in 2016 on HPGDProductions.

Dark Descent Records has released a new song from forthcoming SPECTRAL VOICE album ERODED CORRIDORS OF BEING. Stream "Thresholds Beyond" at the following link:  https://darkdescentrecords.bandcamp.com/track/thresholds-beyond
The song can also be streamed on Youtube at  this location .
After no less than five demos/rehearsals and two splits, Colorado's SPECTRAL VOICE are finally crossing the Styx and delivering their first proper full-length...and it is gigantic.
While things appear quite straight-forward on paper (the band has never hidden their love of roughly mixing early and down tuned Finnish death metal with extreme doom in an acid bath) there's something quite unique about them. Instead of weakening their impact, their rawness and vast sound only emphasizes their genuine thirst for darkness.
Like a lurker oozing with evil intentions, SPECTRAL VOICE like to remain in the shadows. There, they've patiently learned from their elders, only to regurgitate their own brand of extreme death/doom. For instance, 'Visions of Psychic Dismemberment' is an eleven-minute long trip into the darkest regions of our collective mind, where UNHOLY's trippiest moments join INCANTATION for a dance around the fire. The opening blast beat sequence in 'Lurking Gloom' on the top of bleak arpeggios will fire up most dISEMBOWELMENT freaks.
Far more than just a sum of its parts, Eroded Coridors of Unbeing is a unique and claustrophobic voyage, cavernous yet full of clarity. Here, SPECTRAL VOICE
is the sound of one's soul going further down the abyss...and they're taking you with them.
Dark Descent Records will release Eroded Corridors of Unbeing on CD, vinyl, cassette and digital formats on October 13.
Pre-order the album   HERE .
SPECTRAL VOICE is:
J. Barrett - Bass
P. Riedl - Guitar
E. Wendler - Drums and Voice
M. Kolontyrsky - Guitar

PORTUGAL'S HOOFMARK TO RELEASE "STOIC WINDS" THROUGH ULTRAJE  :  Ultraje is a magazine that pays attention to the big names but it's also very dedicated to the underground. Thus, in this second half of 2017 it was decided that it is time to continue writing about music but also to release it, and Portugal's Hoofmark is Ultraje’s first release as a record label.
Originally released in November digitally and on cassette, "Stoic Winds" will now have a CD release on December 8th, 2017.
Hailing from Lisbon, Nuno Ramos knows no boundaries or labeling, and it is also due to its conceptual risk that Hoofmark deserves a physical version that will stand on the collectors' shelves.
If tracks like "Amongst a Sea of Darkness", "Stoic Winds" and "From the Foot of God's Throne" are influenced by the archaic eras of black metal, with Bathory and Mayhem at their head, the track "Dust Trails" elaborates a sound that approaches the americana and country genres with dissonances and rawness to the full, showing that the artist does not go with trends but with soul. And if with "Dust Trails Blazing" we are caught up in a doom raid, then this won’t be a shock.
More details will be revealed soon.
«Hoofmark navigates through lo-fi waters and, in addition to other predicates, its black/punk + country blend is ​​the great attraction of "Stoic Winds". There are nine tracks and about 50 minutes of unconventional and unlabeled sound. Forget about black metal-related commonplaces and enjoy this meal that has ingredients as important and seminal as Bathory, NWOBHM, old-Sepultura, Johnny Cash, among other striking references.» (Review on Ultraje, in November 2016, by Rui Vieira)

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.

I think that these two singles will give the listeners an rough idea of the variation that awaits on Ouroboros. We are also very pleased to be able to present a brand new 360 lyric video that will let the viewers explore some parts of our cover art and lyrics together with this track.  Regards// Kail "

NIHIL EYES –  “BLACK PATH”
Genre
: Death Metal
For fans of: Bolt Thrower | Asphyx | Entombed | Paradise Lost
Friday the 13th of October, 2017...mark that date well. On that day a new force will enter the eternal conflict, a new power will raise its standard over the field of battle. The resolute, unflinching, unwavering, unstoppable death metal of Nihil Eyes’ debut album, Black Path, will come roaring out of the darkness, crushing all that dare to oppose it. A machine of war, driven past the point of reason, recognising only two alternatives – victory or death.
Following in the battle-hardened footsteps of their forbears, war torn legends like Bolt Thrower and Carcass, Nihil Eyes are here to show the world that British death metal can still go toe-to-toe with the world’s elite; that the birth place of metal still possesses the firepower to compete on every level. Formed in 2016 by lead vocalist/guitarist Casey Jones and drummer Szymon Ogiello, the duo were joined in early 2017 by bassist Max Morgan. With the crew complete the heavy artillery of Nihil Eyes was ready to roll and progress has been ferociously rapid. It’s incredible that an earthshaking barrage like Black Path is ready to be unleashed scant months after the band’s line-up was solidified. Such is the accomplished poise and presence that radiates from monstrous steel-clad tracks like ‘Treachery And Id’ and ‘Burn The Leech’, that you’d swear they were the work of veteran campaigners.
Mixed and mastered by the legendary Dan Swanö (Asphyx, Bloodbath, Incantation and too many others to mention) the sound on Black Path is soul-shaking in its dark power, the drive and force behind the immaculately crafted, armour plated tracks simply fearsome. Lyrically speaking, Casey Jones describes the album as “a series of psychological thought experiments exploring the human condition” and these dark explorations add a challenging edge to the shadowy atmosphere that hangs over the album like gun smoke.
Line-up:
Casey Jones – Vocals/Guitar
Max Morgan - Bass
Szymon Ogiello – Drums

Formed in 2011, SKELETAL REMAINS released two highly-acclaimed albums (Beyond the Flesh in 2012 and Condemned to Misery in 2015) via German record label FDA Rekotz.  On the strength of these two albums, SKELETAL REMAINS toured Europe, US and also Japan performing at festivals such as Maryland Deathfest, Party San, Brutal Assault, Obscene Extreme and Hellfest.

DISFIGURED HUMAN MIND / NEW YORK AGAINST THE BELZEBU – ““SÓ QUEREMOS DIZER MERDA E METER NOJO”
Se de um lado temos a demência disfarçada de branca de neve do outro temos a descontração delicerante e ofuscante do caos.
Os Disfigured Human Mind continuam a vomitar soda caústica para cima de todos os apanhados do clima que se atrevem a encontrar, na sua música, um porto de abrigo. Do outro lado, os New York Against The Belzebu provocam espasmos e convulsões descontroladas onde o frenético e o insano apenas pretendem divertir os lobotomizados.
Caso já não tenham nada a provar ou a perder atirem-se e batam com a cabeça nestas paredes, pode ser que se faça alguma luz!

DISFIGURED HUMAN MIND / GORGÁSMICO PORNOBLASTOMA – ““O NOISE MAIS FODIDO DO MUNDO ESTA DE VOLTA À DECADENCIA”
Há certos contextos musicais que chispam labaredas de fel, nestes os dentes são cerrados, as vozes cospem a morte das palavras e a ira veste a carne de tormenta.
Ter os Disfigured Human Mind e os Gorgásmico Pornoblastoma unidos num lançamento é, no mínimo, exigir um espancamento sónico de violência anti-social e anti-humana e é isso que vos aguarda sem perdão!

Die Death Metal ANDABATA sucht dringend  einen neuen Sänger. Du solltest vor allem Spaß an der Musik mitbringen und Bock auf Live-Konzerte haben.
Bei Interesse eine e - mail an info@andabata.de

Wir melden uns mit großen Neuigkeiten aus der Sommerpause zurück: OPERATION CHERRYTREE werden im November Ihr Debütalbum bei NOIZGATE Records veröffentlichen!
OPERATION CHERRYTREE, das sind Wyno, Sieks, Jansen und CH - vier Weltenbummler, die das Schicksal irgendwo in Norwegen zusammengeführt hat. Zum Glück! Denn das Alternative-Quartett hat gemeinsam viel erlebt, viel zu erzählen. Und jede Menge Output! Eine gute Dosis Seattle-Attitude schwingt im CHERRYTREE-Sound mit.
Bay-Area-Lässigkeit. Ein bisschen Texas-Blues. Lebensart, Schwermut, Nostalgie. Aufbruchsstimmung. Experimentierfreude.
Das Debütalbum von OPERATION CHERRYTREE trägt den Titel 'SCUM AND HONEY' und wird am 24.11.2017 (VÖ) bei NOIZGATE Records erscheinen.
Ihren Erstling widmen die vier Globetrotter zumeist persönlichen Themen, lassen jedoch auch das aktuelle Weltgeschehen nicht unkommentiert. Und so klingen die zwölf Songs auf 'SCUM AND HONEY' (produziert von Björn Eric Brodner, 7Klang) mal stinksauer, mal melancholisch, mal wunderschön - und immer unkonventionell: Voll leidenschaftlicher Riffs, packender Beats, pulsierender Grooves und furioser Soli. Und über allem Sänger Wynos großartige Stimme, deren Spektrum von angepissten Shouts über hypnotische Spoken-Word-Einlagen bis hin zur bittersüß-epischen Melodie reicht.
Vorab dürfen wir Euch schon mal das Coverartwork von Dani Hofer (Archetype Design; im Anhang an diese Mail) und die Tracklist zu 'SCUM AND HONEY' präsentieren:
01   Nighthike In The Woods
02   The Dawn
03   Generation Fear And The Rats
04   Colourful Bird
05   Black Is Back
06   Kings And Crowns
07   That Is True
08   Blurring Shadow

10   Today

Carlos Martinez´ THE ROCK N ROLL WRESTLING BASH : Dieses weltweit einzigartige Musical-Show-Konzept ist eine Hybrid-Show aus energiegeladenem Live-Hard Rock/Metal-Sound, Mexican Wrestling, Striptease und Comedy.
Zentrum der Show ist El Brujo´s Gore-Chestra (Bloody Baron Rec.), das auf der Bühne sein unglaubliches Set zum Besten gibt, während wildgewordene Superhelden-Wrestler in dem Wrestling-Ring vor der Stage im mexikanischen Lucha-Libre-Style Gas geben.
Das Besondere: Es werden Kampfchoreographien gestaltet, auf die El Brujo´s Gore-Chestra Instrumental-Stücke komponiert, die auf die Choreographie passen und somit die visuelle Dynamik akustisch untermalen und ergänzen.
Die Kämpfe unterscheiden sich stark von üblichen Wrestling-Shows, durch den Hang zu übertriebenen Stories, fazinierenden Kostüme, einer trashigen Darbietung und der passenden Live-Musik.
Unterstützt durch scharfe Tänzerinnen, die neben ihren Tanzeinlagen auch gerne mal ein paar Flaschen Schnaps einbauen und die ersten Ringreihen abfüllen, entsteht ein hedonistisches Spektakel.
In diesem Jahr erzählt die verrückte Show um Mastermind Carlos Martinez ein weiteres Mal eine historische Legende in ihrem ganz eigenen Stil. "Epos Trashos" nennt sich die neue Show und handelt im Kern von der Legende von Jason und dem goldenen Vlies.
Dargeboten im Deckmantel des Wahnsinns, dem Panzer des Spaßes und der undurchdringlichen Rüstung des Trash, darf sich das Publikum auf einer erneute Version des Rock´n´Roll Wrestling Bash freuen.
Carlos Martinez schreibt für jede Tour eine neue Story, die sich dann im Set-Design und in den Fightcards sowie Kostümierungen widerspiegelt.
So bekommt der Besucher jedes Jahr eine bekannte Show im neuen Gewand präsentiert.
Jede Menge Witz, Style, Sex, Gewalt und Rock´n´Roll werden geliefert. Diese Show kennt keine Grenzen.
Seit der Gründung des Rock´n´Roll Wrestling Bash 2003 ist die Show jährlich auf Europa-Tour, begeistert von Jahr zu Jahr mehr Fans und ist längst Kult. Im März 2016 war die Rock´n´Roll Wrestling Bash Headliner im geschichtsträchtigen The Regent Theater in Downtown Los Angeles.
Am 31.03.2016 gab es in Zusammenarbeit mit Gary Holt der Metal Legende SLAYER das U.S.-Debüt für die Rock´n Roll´Wrestling Bash, gefolgt von einer kompletten U.S.A.-Tournee.
Die Kölner Show begeistert nun weltweit!!
Ausverkaufte Hallen sind absolut keine Seltenheit mehr, daher schnell Tickets auf www.gtwa.de oder www.eventim.de bestellen.
Eine atemberaubende Bühnenperformance á la Alice Cooper mit dem Witz eines Nacho Libre und der Brutalität des MTV Celebrity Deathmach!

Sixty-one seconds deep, SEEKER’s relentless cinder block of nuclear charged metal rears its filthy head again, in the form of ‘Welcome Death,’ the fourth video from the trio’s latest opus LOSS, available now.  “Welcome Death” Now Playing.
“This song is exactly what this band is all about. It's short, fast, relentless, does a really great job capturing the feel of our live shows and the musical direction that we have been working toward for a long time,” explains vocalist/bassist Bryce Lucien. “Aesthetically, this video is exactly what we wanted as well - the dark, chaotic, and unsettling feel of the visual does a great job communicating the feel that this song is supposed to have. ‘Welcome Death’ is one of my favorite songs from Loss and I'm very excited to share this video with everyone.”
One of the hardest working trios in metal (as quoted by Metal Sucks), SEEKER is even more powerful on stage. Lucien syncs with guitarist Andy Torres for a combination of speed and complexity that can be disorientating, while drummer Bryce Butler lends his machine gun dexterity into an explosive live show of whirlwind mosh pits. Catch the band as they continue a non-stop assault of North America.

A long-hidden gem from the European underground has been unearthed and repackaged courtesy of Unspeakable Axe Records.
On September 29, the label will release a two-disc compilation featuring Morbus Ascendit,  the full-length debut from ETERNAL DIRGE. The remastered set also includes two of the band's early demos.
Check out a preview video for the release at https://youtu.be/hVp_xGvXFss
Underrated and somewhat overlooked in the glut of early '90s death and thrash bands, Germany's Eternal Dirge were simultaneously mining a familiar vein of metal while also expanding into stranger territory that most of their peers would not touch.  Their debut album Morbus Ascendit combined the frantic speed, wild riffs and death growls of bands like Sadus and Morbid Saint, with progressive touches and fully melodic passages that revealed greater ambition than just aping what was popular in the underground at the time. Out of print and commanding high prices on the secondhand market for years, Unspeakable Axe is proud to present a new reissue of Morbus Ascendit in all its original glory and then some.
This new double disc set has the entire original album as Disc 1, here gently remastered for a greater dynamic range but otherwise in much the same state that fans will remember it. Disc 2 meanwhile consists of the two demos that preceded the album, "Right to the Core" (1989) and "We Are the Dead" (from 1990 - commonly and erroneously referred to as "Pressurize Dehumanize"). The band considers these two their best pre-album work, and they show a group evolving from fairly straight-up (albeit vicious) thrash to the unique progressive death/thrash blend they showed on their debut. Additionally, the set includes a meaty 20-page booklet with extensive liner notes written by the original band members, plus lyrics, archival photos, and more.  And to cap it off, the album art has been painstakingly re-created in higher resolution and full color from a new scan made of the original painting.  This is Morbus Ascendit as it was meant to be seen and heard.
The reissue is set for a September 29 release. Pre-order now at  this location.

Unspeakable Axe Records will unleash the fury of ENCYRCLE later this month with the release of the band's new EP, BURNING CHILD.
On the heels of their 2016 self-titled debut, Denmark heavy/speed metallers Encyrcle have returned with Burning Child. The EP represents more than one kind of shift for the band - they replaced their singer following the album, and their new material sees a greater diversity in tempo and mood than ever before.
This four-song EP - which consists of two originals including the epic title track, a short instrumental, and a cover of The Doors' "Strange Days" - is a feast for enthusiasts of melodic, soaring lead guitar work and Maiden-esque vocals.
Whatever follows is yet unknown, but this EP shows Encyrcle broadening their sonic pallet while still working the same general territory as their riff-laden, fist-pumping first release.
The EP's title track is now streaming at  youtube.com/watch?v=Z0VxTctgljc
Unspeakable Axe Records will release Burning Child on September 29. Pre-orders now available at this location

CHURCH OF VOID – “CHURCH OF VOID”
Label :
Argonauta Records
File Under: Doom Metal
Release Date: September 15th, 2017
Country: Finland
Hailing from the barren wasteland of Finland, Church of Void is a five men doom rock band. Founded in 2010 by vocalist Magus Corvus and G. Funeral (Ex-Horna, Battlelore), the band’s first sign of life was the limited run EP ‘Winter Is Coming’. With a 2013 LP, released by Finland´s own Svart Records, and a handful of split releases, the band have found a new home in Italian Argonauta Records. Drawing influence from traditional doom such as Saint Vitus and Pentagram as well as grim rockers like Mana Mana, The Birthday Party and Babylon Whores, Church of Void blend their music into upbeat killers, slow-as-snail crushers and vintage hard rock. With five strong songwriters and performers Church of Void is an act to recognize, people either love or loathe them. Church of Void has left its mark on Finnish doom in addition to bringing grief and ecstasy to other European nations such as Estonian, Swedes and Brits.

Right from the start, maintaining an anonymous identity for their members for reasons of safety (READ THIS), HEATHEN BEAST have called out on the unfair practices of the government. From their racist and oppressive ideologies to their recent 'demonitization' scam carried out which entailed the removal of 86% of the currency notes in circulation in India, HEATHEN BEAST have been outspoken like no other band in the region. In their latest video unearthed by Metal Injection  AT THIS LINK, they have pointed out the corruption of the Prime Minister with his  flagrant association with business tycoons.

Release Date - June 1st, 2017

For Fans of - RUDRA, DEMONIC RESURRECTION, GORGOROTH, NAPALM DEATH, BRUTAL TRUTH, NASUM, BEHEMOTH
HEATHEN BEAST, the undercover band from India that's speaking up against the unfair practices of the government, are back from hibernation to release a blackened slab of grindcore. Their improved direction allows them to express their issues in a more effective manner. '$cam' is about the horrifying overnight discontinuation of 90% of the currency notes in circulation around the country, thus effectively bringing the activities, especially of the poor people who don't even have bank accounts, to a grinding halt. Here's an undiluted and venomous take on this whole biased decision that is apparently favouring the rich but leaving the poor people in deep trouble. For better or worse, this unprecedented demonetization move by the government in power has sparked a massive outrage and here's HEATHEN BEAST releasing a scathing album about it in timely fashion.
Track list: 
1. Surgical Strike (De-modi-tisation)

CULTU – “CULTUS IN TENEBRIS”
On October 6th, 2017, Ctulu will unleash the Cultus In Tenebris EP on Static Tension Recordings.  These recordings signify a landmark for Ctulu as they represent a fuller, more realized vision of the band’s sound.  The lead up to the release has seen the band make its first forays into Russia and the band looks to further their audience abroad.
Black metal horde Ctulu hail from Delmenhorst in Northern Germany.  Formed in 2004, the band recorded its debut demo, Zins der Zeit the following year. The Freie Geister demos followed in 2006 and sold out its initial pressing.  The next two years saw the band expand into international markets playing shows in Greece, Austria, and Denmark.
In 2008, Ctulu fleshed out the Freie Geister demos into a full-length release and unleashed it upon the masses.  Now a powerful live machine, Ctulu set out to intensify their international following playing live dates with Inquisition and Melechesh. 
2011 saw the release of Ctulu’s second album, Sarkomand, which the band increasing their reach by playing the Ragnarök Festival in Germany.  Shows with Alcest and Dornenreich followed, but the band was eager to record the follow up album, which landed in 2013. Seelenspiegelsplitter was released on CD and vinyl.
The band signed with MDD Records and released their untitled fourth full-length album. Furthermore, Ctulu played a tour with the German cult band Nocte Obducta and several club/festival shows in Germany, the Czech Republic and Austria. The re-release of the back catalogue on tape is the first cooperation between Ctulu and Static Tension Recordings.
Join the Arkham Militia and enjoy the ride!

ZIFIR – “KINGDOM OF NOTHINGNESS”
ZIFIR have existed for more than a decade in the far confines of the underground, releasing two full-lengths and one split album with Cult Of Erinyes. Now, with their third album ready to be unleashed via Duplicate Records, the turkish two-piece have crafted a unique piece of darkness.
Skillfully blending eastern and scandinavian influences into their very own sound, ZIFIR evoke haunting imagery within the listeners mind. Having carefully honed their craftmanship over the years, they have effortlessly created an album that is diverse without losing its sense of direction.
The occasional sacral chanting adds a unique flavour whilst the organic production lends the album a timeless quality.
As opposed to the standard «hail Satan» perspective, lyrically Kingdom Of Nothingness is a condemnation of all manmade religion, seen from a turkish view. Several songs, like album highlight 769 deal with actual events, or rather horrors that took place in the name of religion.
With Kingdom Of Nothingness, ZIFIR deliver one of the truly stand-out black metal releases of 2017. The beast has awoken.
Available on ltd. edition LP, CD and digital. CD and digital versions include bonus track Evoke.

Chicago Doom/Sludge eclectics I KLATUS have released the official video for "Beneath the Waves," a track from forthcoming album NAGUAL SUN. The video can be viewed at:  https://youtu.be/Dj7DV1MEhY0
I KLATUS will release Nagual Sun October 13 on digital and analog (cassette) formats. The highly anticipated follow-up to 2012's  Kether is the band's third full-length album (and fifth release overall). An official video for album track "Sorcerer's Gaze" is available at  this location.
Pre-order Nagual Sun:  https://iklatus.bandcamp.com/album/nagual-sun
The overall sound of Nagual Sun maintains the gritty roots for which I KLATUS is known, while at the same time launches the group into new and more fully fleshed-out dimensions of weirdness. Tom Denney is the primary soothsayer behind I KLATUS. Denney, whose background is steeped in the visual arts, has provided artwork and monsters for a laundry list of signed metal acts in the community (KYLESA, BLACK COBRA, SAMOTHRACE, CANNIBAL CORPSE, CEPHALIC CARNAGE and RWAKE just to name a few). His guitar squalls hard against the shores of this stoner metal effort, but also manages to rise above the storm in melodic hymns. Denney trades growling vocals with bass player, John E. Bomher, Jr. (BURY THE MACHINES, YAKUZA), who keeps things grinding nicely, while also providing some sweeter tones when they let songs open up and sweep across more ethereal planes.
 Bomher doubles as the band's producer with his extensive experience in the studio; his work on the album sets this release head and shoulders above their previous efforts in terms of production quality. The drums are championed by Chris Wozniak (LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR, EARTHEN GRAVE, SERPENT CROWN) who metes out doom in guttural timing. Wozniak just pounds and pounds, hitting that sonic-pocket, which gives the stoner/doom genre its feeling of lift and expansiveness. Some noises and textures by former member, Robert Bauwens, are also tucked into the nooks and crannies of these tracks. Last by not least, special thanks goes to author Ryan Sean O'Reilly for his contributions to the press release.
Track Listing:
Side A
Beneath the Waves
Serpent Cults
Sorcerer's Gaze
Moment of Devastation
Side B
The Alivist
Jaws of the Shark
Father John Thomas (The Penitent)
Final Communion
I Klatus is the brainchild of Tom Denney, now a 10-year Angeleno. The band was formed in Chicago back in 2005 with Chris Wozniak (Lair of the Minotaur, Earthen Grave, Serpent Crown) and they recorded the first demo Borningroom with the "man behind the metal" in Chicago, Sanford Parker. 
 In 2008, joined by producer/engineer John E. Bomher (Bury the Machines, Yakuza) on bass, vox and various noise machines the band released their first full-length Surveillance & Worship.  Followed up by the epic LP vinyl Kether in 2012, which featured various guest musicians from all over the American metal scene (Leon del Muerte from Phobia, Bruce Lamont from Yakuza, Tariq Ali from Couldron R.I.P.)
The newest incarnation for Nagual Sun still features key members Denney, Bomher and Wozniak with the addition of Robert Bauwens having collaborated and written drum parts for much of the material on Nagual Sun as well as providing the trademark ethereal noise that weaves all throughout I Klatus signature sludgy sound.
 All of their full length records have been recorded and mixed by Bomher at  Horse-Drawn Productions and the newest album proves to be their heaviest sounding release yet.

Innerstrength Records is proud to announce forthcoming new album, STYGIAN, from Italian Death Metal/Deathcore stalwarts THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY. Coming almost four years since the release of critically acclaimed 2013 release Requiem for Us All (Pavement), the level-jumping blast of intensity on the band's Innerstrength debut is the result of miles logged and the already dynamic songwriting honed to a fine point. The album is targeted for a November 24 release.
The band has released the following statement about the new album:
"With this new album we tried to make another step forward in the evolution of our sound: what you'll hear it's a quite obscure atmosphere delivering a sullen and evil experience, yet keeping the heaviness of the death metal matrix that marked our music in the previous albums. The lyrics are all inspired by a common theme, from which the name "Stygian" and the correlated artwork come from, discussing the questionable matter of the human evolution leading men to a slow but inevitable mutation into a being that lost his mind and compassion devoured by greediness and will to power. All the pieces of the puzzle are perfectly pondered to create an album made of passion, of anger, and real emotions. This is the The Modern Age's album!"
Stay tuned for details in the weeks to come!
Formed in 2007, The Modern Age Slavery (TMAS) rapidly gained unanimous critical acclaim from the international press receiving the "Demo of the Month" award in Rock Hard Germany. The release of the debut albumDamned to Blindness via Napalm Records in 2008 delivered an aggressive sound made of grinding blast beats, merciless brutal vocals and slaughtering rapid fire double bass patterns. 
Thanks to positive audience and press response, TMAS extensively toured around Europe both as headliners and as support act, like joining the "Evisceration Plague Tour" featuring CANNIBAL CORPSE, DYING FETUS & OBSCURA and the "Doomsday X Tour" featuring MALEVOLENT CREATION and VOMITORY. The band also appeared on shows with FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, SEPULTURA, DECAPITATED, SUICIDE SILENCE and many more. 
The release of the second album Requiem For Us All via Pavement Entertainment in 2013 pushed their death metal war machine one step forward again, this time with a fierce mix of blazingly fast drumming, technical riffing, epic atmospheres, and crushing groove. Nominated best metal album of 2013 by Axl Rosenberg at metalsucks.net, it brought the band on tour again with bands as GORGOROTH, VITAL REMAINS, HYPOCRISY, plus many gigs on the national soil. 
In the middle of 2016 there was a line-up change, one guitar player and the drummer were permanently substituted by already known names of the Italian underground metal scene. After some concerts testing the new members TMAS started writing material for the new album, yet never stopping the live activity as testified by the Ukrainian tour in February 2017 and the coheadlining gig with INGESTED at Metalcon Festival in The Hague in May. Two months later eight songs were ready so the band entered the studio and finished all the recordings in July. The end of the year 2017 will see the return of the deathsters on the market with powerful, violent and intense riffing, and atmosphere

Imagine if a death metal band got drunk, went to the wrong party and ended up making a baby with a DJ that has a secret craving for some power metal. Now that the image is stuck in your head, let us introduce Asylum 8.

Nikita Kamprad (DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT) zum Album:
NECROTTED schaffen es in Punkto Brutalität, Tempo aber auch Groove von Album zu Album immer wieder einen draufzulegen! Gnadenloses Geknüppel trifft auf eingängige Hooks mit Message. Auf technisch stets hohem Niveau blastet man sich durch die kurzen aber umso knackigeren Songs. Auf jeden Fall ein Anwärter auf das brutalste Album des Jahres!

UNRU / TONGUE - SPLIT
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Supreme Chaos Records
Vertrieb: Cargo Records
VÖ: 22.09.2017
UNRU
Sprichwörtlich aus dem Nichts kommend vereinen UNRU unpopuläre Genres wie Black Metal und Crust Punk zu einer neuen, extremen musikalischen Mixtur. Der vorliegende Beitrag zur Split ist noch tiefer, härter und verstörender als noch die vorhergehenden Splits mit Sun Worship und Paramnesia, vor allem aber das schon reichlich eigenbrötlerische Debüt-Album „Als Tier ist der Mensch nichts“. Ein Track, wie man sich ihn nicht schwärzer und heftiger vorstellen kann, allen Konventionen entgegengestellt und dabei eine erhabene Kompromisslosigkeit ausstrahlen, wie man sie nur mit einer gehörigen Fuck Off-Einstellung eintrümmern kann.
TONGUE
TONGUE ist ein deutsches Black Metal-Quartett, das sich 2014 gegründet hat. TONGUE verbindet unter anderem musikalische Einflüsse aus der zweiten Reihe des skandinavischen Black Metals sowie des Cascadian Black Metals zu einem eigenständigen, charakteristischen Sound. Das selbstbetitelte Debüt-Album wurde Ende 2015 in Eigenregie aufgenommen und veröffentlicht, bevor es Anfang 2017 durch Vendetta Records neu aufgelegt wurde.
Mit dieser Split speit das Bielefelder Konglomerat erneut einen Hassbrocken in die schöne neue Welt, so dass man gezwungen ist, aufzuhorchen.
ANCST / KING APATHY - SPLIT
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Supreme Chaos Records
Vertrieb: Cargo Records
VÖ: 22.09.2017
NCST
Seit ihrer Gründung 2011 als Zwei-Mann-Studio-Projekt haben ANCST sich an die Speerspitze des von Hardcore-Punk geprägten Black Metal im Europäischen DIY Underground gespielt. Mit ihrer Verwurzelung in beiden Genres, Hardcore und Metal, konnte das selbstbetitelte Kollektiv wohl-balanciert heftigen, aber melodischen Black Metal mit brutalen Hardcore Crust gekreuzt und mit wütenden, und bewusst sozial und politisch kritischen Texten komplettiert. Mit zwei hochgelobten Alben und einer riesgen Zahl an EPs und Splits auf Labels wie Vendetta Records oder Halo Of Flies konnten ANCST jede Menge Begeisterung bei Presse und HC-/Metal-Publikum gleichermaßen hervorrufen. Nach der Umwandlung in eine komplett besetzte Live-Band, konnten ANCST u.a. auf dem Fluff Fest, Bloodshed Fest oder New Noise Fest auftreten und Europa, insbesondere England, quasi ununterbrochen betouren.
KING APATHY
Seit 2007 aktiv, bisher unter dem Namen Thränenkind, wurde der neue Name KING APATHY gewählt, um uns daran zu erinnern, dass wir in einer sterbenden Welt leben, in der Menschen, Tiere und die Erde ausgebeutet und ausgerottet werden während viele Menschen nicht den Mut und die Kraft finden, sich dem entgegenzustellen und Ungerechtigkeiten zu bekämpfen. Wir werden alle beherrscht vom „König der Apathie“.
Die Texte von KING APATHY bringen die Probleme der gestörten Beziehung zwischen Mensch und Natur, der menschlichen Beziehungen untereinander, Anarchismus und Urbanität und die dabei immer wieder aufkommende Suche der Menschheit nach Freiheit zur Sprache.
Nach ihrem Demo (2008), einer Split-CD mit HERETOIR (2010), war „The Elk“ (2013) das erste volle Album des Quintetts, gefolgt von „King Apathy“ (2016), das die Umbenennung der Band einläutete.
KING APATHY bewegen sich völlig unbeschwert im Spannungsfeld von melodischem Metal, Post Black Metal, Metalcore, Crust, Post Rock und Hardcore Punk, ohne feste Prioritäten zu setzen oder sich auf ein Genre zu konzentrieren. Das Augenmerk liegt auf Atmosphäre und Melancholie mit bleibendem Eindruck.

After having launched a successful crowdfunding campaign (so far) HERE, DEMONSTEALER have announced another international drummer to contribute towards their much-awaited new release. Having already employed the services of Kevin Paradis, DEMONSTEALER are proud to announce David Diepold from Austria, who has played live previously with BENIGHTED. 
DEMONSTEALER is the solo project of Sahil Makhija who is the founding member of one of India's biggest bands,
DEMONIC RESURRECTION. He dons multiple roles and the music too is completely in his own vision with ample experimentation and collaborations. The previous DEMONSTEALER album received much praise and saw the release of several official videos in its support. The new album is said to be more death metal and with a number of exemplary musicians slated to be a part of it, it's highly anticipated around the world. Two more drummers are yet to be announced along with other details. Watch this space. 
In the official announcement, DEMONSTEALER aka Sahil Makhija said -
"I'm super stoked to announced that David Diepold is going to be playing a song on my upcoming EP titled 'The Last Reptilian Warrior'. I've been floored by his YouTube videos and when I saw him play live in 2015 with BENIGHTED at Brutal Assault I was floored. I had a chance to meet him at the festival and I've been wanting to collaborate with him for a while and I'm super excited that he's now part of this EP. If you don't know who he is just watch his videos
 HERE. That's not all, I had said that there were going to be 3 drummers on this EP, it might just be 4 drummers now. Stay tuned for details."
DEMONSTEALER have also recruited the services of renowned Indian artist Reuben Bhattacharya (Visual Amnesia), who did the breathtaking artwork of the latest DEMONIC RESURRECTION album which you can see below. 
DEMONSTEALER (India/International) - 'THIS BURDEN IS MINE'
Genre - Progressive/Experimental Death Metal
Release Date - March 26th, 2016
Record Label - Demonstealer Records (India)
For fans of - NILE, SOILWORK, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, BENIGHTED, ABORTED, DEMONIC RESURRECTION, REPTILIAN DEATH, ADE
Sahil Makhija aka DEMONSTEALER, helming bands like DEMONIC RESURRECTION and REPTILIAN DEATH, teams up with none other than George Kollias of NILE fame on drums, to release a groundbreaking album in 'This Burden is Mine'. With a vast experience and multiple instrument proficiency, DEMONSTEALER, on the new album create music that surpasses simple genre categorization, for this is a new blend of styles from all over - from death metal to thrash metal, laced with elegant and stunning atmospheric parts, propelled by the world class drumming of the legend George Kollias. This is a new epic coming from the biggest names in not just the region but also worldwide, and this could very well be a tour de force, the album we've all been waiting for. The album showcases rare maturity, with DEMONSTEALER indulging in melodic solos and accentuating them with moments of clean vocals. This is easily the most ambitious release to come out from these parts and it's imperative to give 'This Burden of Mine' a check.

Experimental Indian death metal band FRAGARAK have put out a stunning album that's unparalleled at least this part of the world. Rolling Stone India premiered the first song from their massive album 'A Spectral Oblivion'  AT THIS LINK.
FRAGARAK (India) - 'A SPECTRAL OBLIVION'
Gatefold 8-Panel Digipak CD / T-shirt / Digital (October 30th, 2017)
Genre - Experimental Death Metal
Release Date - October 30th, 2017
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity India (sub-label)
For fans of - OPETH, EDGE OF SANITY, AMORPHIS, HYPOCRISY, DEMONSTEALER, RUDRA
Ambitious Indian band FRAGARAK from New Delhi have come up with an album of epic proportions. Featuring Louis Rando of IMPIETY on drums, they've fabricated elaborate songs that are both atmospheric and suspenseful. Their first album was groundbreaking in its vision, but with 'A Spectral Oblivion' they've truly proved their worth. This is a statement of sorts that bands from this part of the world too can come up with music that's original. Though steeped in classic death metal, they've done well to expand upon that style and add their own aura of mysticism and intrigue. Albums like these probably won't ever be replicated, but there's enough material here to last a while.

Supratim Sen: Vocals 
Kartikeya Sinha: Bass, Clean Vocals

CARDINALS FOLLY – “ DERANGED PAGAN SONS “
CD: Nine Records | Release date: September 4th 2017
VINYL: Topillo Records | Release date: September 30th 2017
Tracklist :
Worship Her Fire
Dionysian Dionysian
Deranged Pagan Sons
The Island Where Time Stands Still
Three-Bladed Doom
Suicide Commando
I Belong In The Woods
Secret of the Runes
Finland´s morbid princes of the riff, doom metal cult CARDINALS FOLLY will unleash their 4th album "Deranged Pagan Sons" through Polish Nine Records on CD and via Spanish Topillo on LP around September 2017.
Dabbling in the world of occultism, weird tales, obscure horror, pagan rites and luciferian depravity, the band has recorded an album consisting 8 powerful, even wild anthems of heavy doom and metal mastery, that never let their savage NWOBHM-influenced classic doom grip go, despite of going on a varied 48-minute fiery ´n´ groovy metal adventure.
Previous album "Holocaust of Ecstasy & Freedom" (Shadow Kingdom Records, 2016) paved the way to this so far most perfect fulfillment of their blasphemous art, where every song rolls by like a megafauna of a bygone age in a shadowy domain, where the only law is to doom in, drop out, rock hard & stay true.
The doom metal underground sometimes seems packed with toothless sheep, so it is great to spend some time with wolves. Laughing off the shackles of the latest trends or retro gimmicks, Finnish trio Cardinals Folly bring an energy and inventiveness to the genre that is authentic and unique.
Drink from their chalice and give your body and mind to the old gods...

GORGY – “LEGACY OF GORE “
Hailing from the depths of the Bible Belt, Gorgy releases Legacy of Gore.  A career retrospective that contains every recorded track, plus the Battered and Devoured Demos, which are seeing the light of day for the first time.  Join the legions for 24 tracks of gore!
Gorgy is an aural and visual experience created by five guys who have dedicated their lives to brutal metal. Created in 2008 from the ruins of other bands, Gorgy has proved to be a force to be reckoned with. Each member, past and present, has brought a unique sense of style, composition, and ability to the band to create a sound that is very much their own. It has been said Gorgy is not for the beginner into metal and challenges the listener with rapid changes, brutal groves, and blistering grind. Join our legions of Gorgyites in our quest for brutally blasphemous, gore fueled good times!
Released on September 1st, 2017, Legacy of Gore sets the stage for the band's next full-length endeavor, which will follow this winter.

NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS RAGNAROK ANNOUNCE NEW ADDITION TO THE BAND AND CONFIRM LATIN AMERICAN TOUR DATES :
Having spent the last year or so using session bass players for their live appearances, Norwegian Black Metal veterans RAGNAROK have today announced that and bassist Rammr (JORDSKIPSTYRANN and ELVARHØI) has joined the band on a full-time, permanent basis.
"Originally it was our intention to use a session bassist going forward," explains founder and frontman Jontho Panthera, one of Norway's most iconic Black Metal drummers, who recently switched roles to become the band's vocalist.  "However,  during the shows he did with us, Rammr's dedication to his craft, and to RAGNAROK itself, became very evident to everyone.  He fits in perfectly with the rest of the band, which includes Bolverk on guitars and drummer Daniel Minge (DAUDEN), not only on stage,  but also on a personal level".
"Most importantly he understands our ideology, and what RAGNAROK expects of its members, and after yet another incredible performance from him at Kaltenbach Open Air recently I thought it was right to make him a full member of the horde!"
RAGNAROK are set to hit the road in September, for a thirteen-date tour of Latin America, where the band has a considerable following.  Routing for RAGNAROK's Psychopathology Latin American Tour is as follows, and includes links to the specific Facebook events where fans will be able to get all the necessary details:
06 Recife - Brasil

Indian brutal death metal legends return with their highly awaited new album titled ‘Amputheatre’. It’s a quantum leap ahead in terms of songwriting when compared to their 2013 debut ‘Skewered in the Sewer’. GUTSLIT have improved phenomenally and honed their skills in the company of the new vocalist Kaushal LS of GODLESS. Their trademark brutality now sees development with the incorporation of grind influences, and their music couldn’t be better balanced and memorable. This makes them stand head and shoulders above from the sea of brutal death metal bands out there, and with a massive European tour lined up this year, GUTSLIT sure won’t make it easy to forget their masterpiece.

Metalheads, große Ereignisse werfen ihre Schatten voraus.
Es hat sich ja inzwischen herumgesprochen, dass der ehemalige NILE-Frontmann Dallas Toler-Wade seine Truppe NARCOTIC WASTELAND mittlerweile zu einem Full-Time-Act ausgebaut hat.
Das neue Prachtwerk hört auf den bedeutungsschwangeren Titel "DELIRIUM TREMENS" und erscheint am 13.10.
Das Album befasst sich mit der gigantischen aktuellen Drogenwelle in den USA, die dort drüben bis in die unauffälligsten Kleinstädte eingezogen ist.
Dallas & Co. haben aus diesem Thema ein fieses, Riff-gewaltiges, vernichtendes Extrem-Metal-Monster erschaffen, das die Hörer herausfordert, aber immer den roten Faden im Auge behält.
Gemixt wurde "Delirium Tremens" von keinem Geringeren als Grammy-Gewinner Neil Kernon.
Der ebenfalls nicht gerade unbedarfte Alan Douches besorgte das Mastering.
 Das neue Lyricvideo ´Faces Of Meth´ gibt´s hier:  https://youtu.be/UJPkigmZspY

WHILE SHE SLEEPS verwandelten ein leeres Lagerhaus im Herzen ihrer Heimatstadt Sheffield in ihr eigenes Mehrzweckstudio, um ihr neues Album »You Are We« zu produzieren. Das ist nicht das erste Mal, dass die Band ihren ganz persönlichen Ort für sowas hat - die Debüt-EP »The North Stands For Nothing« aus dem Jahr 2010 wurde in einem Homestudio namens The Barn aufgenommen - doch mit diesem neuen, ganz persönlichen Ort der Kreativität ging die Band noch einen Schritt weiter. “There’s always been a very DIY aspect to this band,” erklärt Sänger Lawrence ‘Loz’ Taylor “so going it alone a bit more now just reiterates that to everyone. The Barn was a very important place for us – it’s where we grew as friends and it was where we hung out and could be creative – so the idea with this new space is that it gives us a lot more creative space. There’s a studio and live room, and we have space now to achieve what we want to achieve as a band. This place is going to house us for a good few years.”
Es ist auch ein Ort an dem die Band versucht die Barriere zwischen ihnen und ihren Fans noch weiter aufzubrechen. Als Teil der PledgeMusic-Kampagne des neuen Albums hatten Fans die Möglichkeit ins Studio zu kommen und beim Videodreh von 'Hurricane' mitzuwirken. “That was absolutely crazy,” schießt Taylor hervor. “I’m still aching from that! But the special thing is that every kid who came down for the video shoot actually helped make the album happen. And to that extent they made this warehouse capable of living.” “Now more than ever,” fügt Sean Long (Gitarre) hinzu, “our fans know that it’s them making all of this possible for us. The divide between artist and fan is ridiculous, because there are no fans without the artist and there’s no artist without the fans. They go hand in hand together as one absolute thing, and I really like that we can see that in play with what we’ve been doing. It’s very reassuring to see that support right in front of us.”
Produziert von Carl Bown, der auch »Brainwashed« gemacht hat, beinhalten die Songs von »You Are We« mehr Energie, mehr Fokus und mehr Entschlossenheit als jemals zuvor. Songs wie 'Hurricane' und die erste Single 'Civil Isolation' führen die Entwicklung der Band als eine der am stärksten inspirierenden, zügellosesten und wichtigsten Stimmen in der britischen Musik von heute fort. Während diese gewaltigen Hymnen ein klares Bild des Post-Brexit-Britannien malen, stehen die Songs für die universellsten und vor allem auch persönlichsten in der Karriere der Band.

DEVAR RELEASE SECOND SINGLE AHEAD OF UPCOMING FULL-LENGTH ALBUM : With their long-awaited sophomore full-length album "Mausoleum" due for release on the Gymnocal  Industries label on the 29th September, Norwegian Metallers DEVAR have given fans a second taste of what to expect with the release of the title track in digital format.
DEVAR's unconventional approach to music draws its influences not only from the Extreme and Black Metal genres, but also from Avant-garde Metal and 70's Prog.  Matched with a lyrical concept that takes listeners on a journey down the paths of fear, insanity, darkness and death in order to explore the decline of man, the resultant sound is one that is both original and unique.
Both the single "Masoleum", and the entire album,  were recorded by Bjørnar E. Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, TAAKE, HELHEIM) at the Conclave & Earshot Studios in  Bergen, along with Devar at the Alternate End Studios, and Ottoegil at Internasjonalt Farvann.  "Masoleum" is mixed and mastered by Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED) at the Conclave & Earshot Studios.
Cover art for the single "Masoleum" is by Tom Korsvold, photography is by Ronny A. Sangolt.  It is available in digital format from
https://devar.bandcamp.com/track/mausoleum-single as well as from the following:
Itunes:

Spotify:
 https://open.spotify.com/album/4ZOtDx6lyMlfzqFu5lvKTL
Tidal: 
https://tidal.com/album/77128601
The band was originally formed as a solo project by frontman Devar in 2002, who, upon realising what was needed if he wanted to bring his vision to fruition, put together a full lineup that today consists  of Devar on vocals, Obdsaija on  Drums and Percussion, Aadland on  Guitars and Ottoegil on Bass and  Keys. 
Since the release of the band's 2009 full-length debut "Alternate Endings", "DEVAR" has matured into a more reflective band, and the resultant sophomore album reveals songs that are much more focused and with a more progressive touch.  As with the single, artwork for "Mausoelum" is by Tom Korsvold and photography by Ronny A. Sangolt. 
Tracklisiting is as follows:
1. Mausoleum
2. House of Bones
3. Dead End Moon
4. Shadow Straggler
5. Cold black Rain
6. Narcissa Oriane
7. Ashes
8. Dead Wounds
 “Mausoleum” is now available to pre-order in Digipak CD, Gatefold DLP and Digital formats from
 www.gymnocal.com
"House of Bones", the first single taken from "Mausoelum" can be heard at  http://devar.bandcamp.com/track/house-of-bones

Country: Italy
Sator are a doom/sludge band from Genoa, formed in spring 2013 by Mauro (guitar) and Valerio (bass guitar and growls) joined almost immediately by Michelangelo (drums). SATOR love to mix heavy and psyched out sounds. Following the highly acclaimed 2015 debut, the new album is ready in September 2017 on Argonauta Records and sees the band at its very best, with sonorities influenced by both classic and modern bands: from the pioneers of doom & kraut muzik to the modern sludge & post metal. Sator (sower, producer, father in Latin) creates the word Saturn, the divinity, whom was told that one of his children would have dethroned him one day. So he decided to devour all his progeny. It as a symbol of our society that devours itself for its personal interests. SATOR “Ordeal” is recommended if you like: EYEHATEGOD, SKEPTICISM, NEUROSIS.

DARK ESSENCE RECORDS SIGN NORWEGIAN DOOMSTERS DWAAL  : Whilst Dark Essence Records' impressive band roster has never been short of Black and Extreme Metal,  the slow, heavy tones of Doom have, until now, been noticeable by their absence.  But that is all about to change as the Bergen-based label announced today that they had signed Norwegian Doomsters DWAAL.
Formed during 2014 in Norway's capital city Oslo, DWAAL is a five-headed behemoth, assaulting the listener with a dense wall of sound that lies somewhere at the intersection of Doom and Post Metal. The atmosphere they create is one of slow motion, laden with heavy, sludgy, gloomy riffs,  punctuated alternately by despairing vocals one minute, and minimalistic, melancholic melodies the next.  Or, as the band like to put it: " A punch in the throat followed by a soothing caress, followed by another punch in the throat".
DWAAL's lineup is comprised of Christian Natusch on Vocals &  Synth, Eigil Dragvik on Guitar & Backing Vocals, Rikke Karlsen on Guitar, Stian Hammer on Bass and Anders Johnsen on Drums.  The band's studio debut was self-released in April of this year to a warm reception from the Norwegian underground.  The EP,  titled "Darben", is a 31 minute, two-track opus which can be heard at
 
https://dwaaldoom.bandcamp.com
Work has now begun on DWAAL's first full-length album, with tracking expected to start in the spring of 2018 for release later in the year.
More information about DWAAL can be found on the band's Facebook at

The 4th full length album in its hardest and most diversed form than ever. Simultaneously, it´s the first album with an excellent drummer Jan Kapák (MASTER´S HAMMER, AVENGER, AFTER RAIN). The band is developing their own vision of the dark metal style – working with epical passages, gloomy moods, doomy melodies and a rich scale of emotional vocals. Lyrically, this is a heart-whole album where a tiny stream of poison is coming through, envenoming mind, and allowing manipulate individual and masses. The record is definitelly the strongest and most compact material the band came out with.
DARK ANGELS – „VENOMOUS EMBRACE“
Genre: Dark Metal
Format: CD
Release  Date: August 18th 2017
We are very proud to announce a brand new, death metal album sacred and named In the Secretion of Upcoming Days from Czech death metal masters SECTESY. The new, second album is equipped with well-structured, powerful, straightforwardly paced and melodic songs. Perceivable graveyard atmosphere shrouded around each song gives creeps to everyone who likes horror movies as cemetery is the best place where to play death metal songs. Another special ingredience to their music is humor – black like the dark realms of Hades, dry like the desert itself, ironic like the Valley of Death and sarcastic like Odin´s ravens sniffing around the crypt of the bone dry Zombie corpses. Martin´s lyrics are crawling deep into the shadows of human sins, sorrow, weakness.

Outro
On this release the Macedonian crust four piece conjure memories of classic mid-tempo Death Metal with a thundering collection of old-school riffs and d-beats. The self titled 12" opens and closes with clean guitar runs that could have been pulled straight from an 80's death/thrash album, and the guitar continues this feel throughout, mixing classic metal-punk influences like Wolfbrigade with thrash and classic melodic Swedeath sensibilities for a properly air-punching, foot-stomping and neck wrecking collection of tracks.
The drums never stray far from breakneck speed d-beat land and you get the impression even on the slower sections of track the band are impatient to get back to the fast again! Though clearly drawing from very old-school influences here the performances and production feels very modern.
All the instruments are audible, and the performences, though undeniably playing in a very 'traditional' style (lots of guitar trem picking and galloping bass to be found here) are extremely tight and focussed.
Though brief this release gives the distinct impression of quality over quantity, feeling like a 'best of' performence of Bolt Throwers' 'The IVth Crusade'. Massive riffs, screaming solos, pounding D-beats and howling vocals, what more could a metal-punk ask for!!
The band tours Europe in September,

Loud Rage Music proudly announce the signing of mysterious Romanian / German duo THE WAKE. The band is finally ready and confident to show the World what they have been working on since their formation in 2009; the band's debut album is about to hit the streets this Autumn. The Wake’s goal is to show the World that black metal returns with simplicity, but great passionate songwriting, proving a high intensity capable to reach big audiences again.
The Wake plays black metal having Dissection, Venom and Bathory as main inspiration, but their style reminds of some of the biggest Scandinavian names (Immortal, Darkthrone, Dark Funeral) and shows also a powerful melancholic side, which resembles the British premiere league of dark and depressive music (old Anathema, My Dying Bride, Cradle Of Filth).
More details to follow soon!
Line-up:
"V" (screams, voices, lyrics)
"XII" (guitars, bass, programming)

FORGED IN BLACK PRESENT NEW VIDEO WITH ZERO TOLERANCE MAGAZINE : Hi – Chris and Paul here from Imperative PR. Today the UK's rising stars of heavy metal - FORGED IN BLACK - release the promo video from their forthcoming EP, SINNER SANCTORUM.
The video can be viewed here:   http://www.ztmag.com/blog/news/forged-in-black-unleash-new-video-for-upcoming-ep/
Produced once again by the legendary Chris Tsangarides (Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Judas Priest etc) who also worked on their previous EP Fear Reflecting Fear, Sinner Sanctorum simply towers over all that Forged In Black have released before. The four new tracks that comprise the EP are finely crafted sonic monuments of pure steel; each an epic adventure in their own right. Soaring, spiralling lead guitar work and the incredible vocals of front man Chris ‘Stoz’ Storozynski engage in aerial dogfights above a rugged, mountainous terrain of gritty riffs and a thunderous rhythm section. All the power and fury of thrash, the atmosphere, grandeur and emotion of doom and the boundless energy of power metal are gathered in and poured into the burning elixir of Forged In Black’s unique take on the glorious metal art.
The EP is released 02 September, and the band have a launch show at  The Camden Underworld on Saturday 02 September  as special guests to Canadian hard rockers Diemonds.

MEAT TRAIN – “RANDOM ACTS OF CARNAGE”
Label: Contagion Records
Release date : 29/09/17
Line up:Father Michael – Guitar And The Voice Of Command: The High Priest of pain and lord of the tormented.
Iki Dredgewood – Bass Guitar: Silent dismemberer, masked warrior and seamstress of flesh and skin.
Stu Smithson – Drums: Rage confined in the frame of a beast. A pugilist supreme with fists like hammers.
Chas Naughton – Lead Guitar: The harvester of trespassers who ploughs the fields of retribution with the bones of the foolish and the false.
Genre: Filthy Death Metal
For fans of: Autopsy | Grave | Six Feet Under
On the 29th of September a new level of horror, fear and ferocity will be pulling into a station near you. The whispered warnings have spread through the metal underground like wildfire and now the dreaded event is upon us...Meat Train have returned. Led by their own deranged anti-priest, these sinister, soulless beasts of brutality are on a crusade of carnage. They not only want to watch the world burn, they want to kill as many people as possible as the flames engulf us all.
Contagion Records have taken it upon themselves to release Meat Train’s unholy book, their bestial bible, their manual to the end of all things...Random Acts Of Carnage. The eleven hymns of horror that nestle like vipers beneath the bloody insanity of the cover art explore the darkest depths of human behaviour. From unflinching examinations of the chapters of history that shame our entire species to flesh eating fantasies and tales of the undead, Random Acts Of Carnage leaves no ghastly stone unturned, no shadowed corner unexplored.
Their tales of terror are accompanied by musical muscle of the most intimidating power. The band that Terrorizer magazine once said would make you ‘sick to your stomach’ have never been more fiercely focussed. This is real death metal – filthy, grinding, decimating death metal that will drown you in blood and have you choking and gasping for more. Featuring a gruesome, guttural, guest backing vocal performance from Svenson Groß of Fleshcrawl, a guitar sound heavy enough to reduce bodies to pulp, a vocal presence to freeze the blood and a merciless bottom end that propels the listener into the meat grinder of the relentless drum assault – this album is unstoppable.
Look beyond the doors of the Meat Train – if you dare.

After no less than five demos/rehearsals and two splits, Colorado's SPECTRAL VOICE are finally crossing the Styx and delivering their first proper full-length...and it is gigantic.
While things appear quite straight-forward on paper (the band has never hidden their love of roughly mixing early and down tuned Finnish death metal with extreme doom in an acid bath) there's something quite unique about them. Instead of weakening their impact, their rawness and vast sound only emphasizes their genuine thirst for darkness.
Like a lurker oozing with evil intentions, SPECTRAL VOICE like to remain in the shadows. There, they've patiently learned from their elders, only to regurgitate their own brand of extreme death/doom. For instance, 'Visions of Psychic Dismemberment' is an eleven-minute long trip into the darkest regions of our collective mind, where UNHOLY's trippiest moments join INCANTATION for a dance around the fire. The opening blast beat sequence in 'Lurking Gloom' on the top of bleak arpeggios will fire up most dISEMBOWELMENT freaks.
Far more than just a sum of its parts, Eroded Coridors of Unbeing is a unique and claustrophobic voyage, cavernous yet full of clarity. Here, SPECTRAL VOICE
is the sound of one's soul going further down the abyss...and they're taking you with them.
Dark Descent Records will release Eroded Corridors of Unbeing on CD, vinyl, cassette and digital formats on October 13.
Pre-order the album  HERE .
SPECTRAL VOICE is:
J. Barrett - Bass
P. Riedl - Guitar
E. Wendler - Drums and Voice
M. Kolontyrsky - Guitar

PARTY.SAN METAL OPEN AIR
09. - 11. August 2018- Schlotheim, Flugplatz Obermehler
Leute,  wir bedanken uns bei Euch für ein großartiges Party.San Metal Open Air 2017. Auch wenn der Regengott es dieses Jahr nicht gut mit uns gemeint hat, habt ihr das Festival wieder zu dem gemacht für was es steht: ein mit Herz veranstaltetes Metal Festival ohne ablenkenden Firlefanz und mit Hauptaugenmerk auf die Musik und deren Fans. Wir ziehen unseren Hut und bedanken uns bei euch für eurer Durchhaltevermögen, die Treue und Unterstützung. Ihr seid absoluter Wahnsinn. Wir hoffen, dass ihr trotz des kalten Pisswetters eine großartige Zeit bei uns hattet und ihr wieder gut in die heimischen vier Wände zurückgefunden habt.
Wir arbeiten schon wieder mit Volldampf an der nächsten Ausgabe desParty.San Metal Open Air's, welches vom 09.08 bis 11.08.2018 in Schlotheim stattfinden wird. Die ersten Bands sind bereits gebucht und der Ticketvorverkauf startet heute. Wie gewohnt gibt es Einzeltickets, Frühbuchershirts + Tickets in diversen Bundles. Nach dem Festival ist vor dem Festival – wir sehen uns nächstes Jahr in Schlotheim.
Tickets ab sofort :  www.cudgel.de
Booking-News:
Mit einem neuen Album im Gepäck, das im Winter erscheinen soll, kehrt die derzeit wohl größte „echte“ Black-Metal-Band zurück auf unsere Bühne, um ein großes pechschwarzes Feuerwerk abzubrennen. WATAIN – das ist nicht weniger als Blood, Fire & Death!
 HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY sind in den vergangenen Jahren zu einer der populärsten Bands im Bermudadreieck zwischen Black Metal, Post Metal und atmosphärischen Depressive Black Metal gewachsen. Bislang hat die Truppe drei Alben veröffentlicht, ein vierter Longplayer ist derzeit in Arbeit.
Schwärzer als die Nacht, tödlicher als der Tod, brutaler als 99,99 Prozent der gesamten Krachszenerie: Das kanadische Trio REVENGE bedeutet: Chaos und Zerstörung. Mit Bestial/War-Black-Metal-Meilensteinen wie „Triumph.Genocide.Antichrist“ und „Scum.Collapse.Eradication“ hat man die Messlatte der gewaltbereiten Stumpfheit weit nach oben gehievt, und auch live on stage regiert der grobe Knüppel.
 Der Soundtrack zum Biersuff und zudem ein wichtiges Stück deutscher Thrash-Metal-Geschichte. TANKARD aus Frankfurt sind seit Jahrzehnten totaler Kult. Wieso haben wir die Hessen nicht ständig bei uns zu Gast? Keine Ahnung! Aber nächstes Jahr sind die Hessen wieder am Start! Abschädeln und headbangen, Folks!
Wenn sich Thrash Metal mit stachelköpfigem Punk vereint, wenn man als Einflüsse Slayer, Motörhead, Exodus und Venom einerseits sowie The Exploited, Discharge und D.R.I. andererseits heraushören kann, dann muss es sich um TOXIC HOLOCAUST handeln. Der asoziale Haufen aus Portland, Oregon, hat erneut sein Erscheinen angedroht. Vorsicht, Gefahr!
Seit 20 Jahren poltern die Franzosen von BENIGHTED ihren höchst originellen Death-Grind, haben es auf acht Alben gebracht und werden euch ordentlich in die Mangel nehmen! Diese Burschen geben immer Vollgas.  
 Wenn es um jene Form des melodischen Death Metal geht, der mit einem Bein im Black Metal steht und trotz seiner Harmonien finster und abgründig klingt, dann sind UNANIMATED das Paradebeispiel dafür. Die Schweden zählen mit Dissection zu den Urvätern des skandinavischen Todesmetalls, gelten nachweislich als latent auflösungsgefährdet, so dass es uns besonders wichtig ist diese Band nochmal auf unsere Bühne zu holen.
 Beste Grüße Johannes C. Schulz

GUTSLIT are one of the best known acts this side of the world. They're embarking on an unprecedented 15-city European tour to promote their upcoming album titled 'Amputheatre'. They've upgraded their style from semi-technical brutal death to one incorporating grind influences, supplanting the previous slam riffing. Check out their new video on the official Transcending Obscurity channel  AT THIS LINK and another song on Bandcamp  AT THIS LINK
GUTSLIT (India) - 'AMPUTHEATRE'

Record Label - Transcending Obscurity India (sub-label)
For fans of - DYING FETUS, MISERY INDEX, NASUM, TERRORIZER, PATHOLOGY, ABORTED, CATTLE DECAPITATION, SUFFOCATION
Indian brutal death metal legends return with their highly awaited new album titled ‘Amputheatre’. It’s a quantum leap ahead in terms of songwriting when compared to their 2013 debut ‘Skewered in the Sewer’. GUTSLIT have improved phenomenally and honed their skills in the company of the new vocalist Kaushal LS of GODLESS. Their trademark brutality now sees development with the incorporation of grind influences, and their music couldn’t be better balanced and memorable. This makes them stand head and shoulders above from the sea of brutal death metal bands out there, and with a massive European tour lined up this year, GUTSLIT sure won’t make it easy to forget their masterpiece. 
Line up: 
Gurdip Singh Narang - Bass 
Kaushal LS - Vocals 
Prateek Rajagopal - Guitar 
Aaron Pinto - Drums

PETRIFICATION - SUMMON HORRENDOUS DESTRUCTION 7"
Oreon-based Death Metal Horde Unleash Horrifically Gruesome Debut Demo on Red and Black 7" Vinyl.
Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide -  we're happy to finally present you with the 7" vinyl release of Petrification's monstrous debut demo - Summon Horrendous Destruction!
This devastating demo was first released on tape last March, with the two pressings that were done selling out in record time and these cassettes becoming an instant collector's item! The original tape pressing received widespread acclaim with many top metal publications like Decibel Magazine and Metal Injection praising the band's reckless and original approach to super destructive old school death metal. CVLT Nation went as far as calling Summon Horrendous Destruction a “glorious slab of putrefying sonic death” and a “gore-obsessed frenzy of decaying sonic rot and of punishing death metal chaos”. Petrification’s old school death metal trudge truly is a gruesome thing to behold - their music batters the flesh and smashes bone with the cruelty of an orc unleashed from hell, and their debut demo Summon Horrendous Destruction is a glorious onslaught of mummified and gross as fuck old school death metal that will delight fans of Autopsy, Nihilist, Grave, Cruciamentum, Disma etc.
Petrification formed out of their love of Old School Swedish, British and particularly Finnish Death Metal, wanting to create music that while an homage to its roots, allowed its members to find their own unique voice in Extreme Metal. Drawn to the evil and doom-laden soundscapes of the Finnish Masters, Petrification set out to meticulously craft their own vision in the writing of the demo Summon Horrendous Destruction, lyrically and sonically conjuring apparitions of giant, man-eating Arachnids and other horrors that lurk on the edge of the Void awaiting their victims.
The Summon Horrendous Destruction vinyl 7" (which comes as a standard red or limited black 7" with amazing artwork done by Petrification singer and renewed graphic artist Jason Barnett) is a corelease between SR and To The Death Records (EU), and is available for order immediately through our store and Bandcamp and already shipping worldwide. 
Sincerely,  Sentient Ruin.

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

DEVOURER – “ACROSS THE EMPTY PLAINS”
Sweden's Devourer return with "Across The Empty Plains", the band's sophomore album that showcases once again a high dose of black metal.
In 2013, after the release of their debut "All Hope Abandon", guitarist/bassist Falk was suffering from depression and opiate addiction, which put most of his musical activities on hold for almost two years. After being forced into treatment by the Swedish law of mandatory treatment for abusers and alcoholics, the musican returned so he could do what he does best: music.
After an initial release in digital format, "Across the Empty Plains" is going to see a physical release on September 15th 2017 via Iron Blood And Death.
Tracklist :
Insania
Perdition
Nexus of Evil
Across the Empty Plains
Deeds of Rancor
Finem Vitae Cura
Throne of Agony

WOLVENGUARD’s ELEMENTAL RECLAMATION EP connects back to long gone days when myth and magic mixed with blood and honour and cries to ancient gods were heard above the clash of steel on steel. The three songs which unite under the banner of Elemental Reclamation fit seamlessly together, forging a triumvirate of steel that will have metal fans of all hues and allegiances hungry for more. With evocative vocals, surging riffs, guitar melodies that ensnare the heart and fire the imagination and an ever present, rumbling, irresistible force and power, all captured perfectly by the mixing and mastering skills of J-F Dagenais (Kataklysm), Wolvenguard speak to metal warriors around the world. Open your ears, open your hearts, to the battle cry of Wolvenguard!
Final Coil’s Persistence Of Memory album stops you in your tracks, reminding you that things of depth and worth can still be found in this world. It’s the perfect example of an album where every element has been carefully crafted, every detail attended to. From the sensitive mastering by Cult Of Luna’s Magnus Lindberg to the enthralling cover art, created by Andy Pilkington (Flotsam And Jetsam), Persistence Of Memory is a remarkable achievement. The songs are formed of dense, rich riffs, driven forward by pulsing rhythms as beautiful vocal harmonies speak to the heart and the mind of the listener. Fluid guitar leads dance across muscular song structures, painting the liquid steel of the songs in an explosion of colour and emotion. Metallic strength and power is transformed through progressive musicianship, but emotive melodies unlock the songs, opening their doors to all. Step out of the tumult. Take the time to remember the true value of artistic endeavour.
Leave the rocky shallows and dive into the unfathomable depths of the still waters of Persistence Of Memory.

EINHEIT PRODUKTIONEN News :
EDEN WEINT IM GRAB präsentieren Scherenschnitt-Videoclip zu „IN DER TOTEN-TAVERNE“
Lange Zeit mussten Fans der Berliner Dark-Metal-Band Eden Weint Im Grab auf das Video zu „In der Toten-Taverne“ warten. Nachdem die Crowdfunding-Kampagne über Startnext und der Dreh im Februar abgeschlossen waren, zog sich anschließend die Postproduction in die Länge. Doch es handelt sich schließlich um ein sehr aufwendiges Video im Scherenschnitt-Stil, für das sich die Band am Artwork ihres aktuellen Albums „Na(c)htodreise“ orientiert hat. Regisseur Rainer ZIPP Fränzen, der auch schon sehenswerte Videos für Dimmu Borgir, Orden Ogan, Atrocity oder Leaves’ Eyes drehte, über die Zusammenarbeit: „Der Ausflug ins Jenseits hat sich als skurril-genialer Traum gestaltet. Es war eine Freude und Fest, erneut mit EwiG zusammen zu arbeiten. Der Wermutstropfen dabei war leider, dass der Aufwand in der Postproduktion sehr viel größer war als gedacht. Aus diesem Grunde kollidierte die Toten-Taverne mit anderen, bereits geplanten Projekten und hat eine Verzögerung erfahren. Doch nun ist sie fertig und kann hinaus in die Welt, um alle EwiG-Fans dort draußen zu begeystern! In diesem Sinne ein großes SORRY und ein noch größeres VIEL SPASS für euch!“

Abschiednehmen von AETHERNAEUM
Aethernaeum haben traurige Nachrichten für uns. Die kommenden beiden Gigs beim Rock For Roots am 01.09. in Nauen und am 30.09. im Jugendfunkhaus Berlin werden die bis auf weiteres letzten beiden für die Folk Black-Metal-Band sein. „Für einige von uns haben sich die musikalischen, zeitlichen und persönlichen Prioritäten in den letzten Monaten und Jahren derart geändert, dass wir beschlossen haben, die Band (erst einmal) ruhen zu lassen“, heißt es in einem Statement der Berliner. „Ob es ein Abschied für immer oder auf Zeit sein wird, vermögen wir selbst nicht zu sagen, da wir uns für die Zukunft alle Optionen offen halten möchten – zumal uns alle nach wie vor ein freundschaftliches Verhältnis verbindet. Doch wir wollen euch nicht vergeblich auf neues Material und weitere Gigs warten lassen und daher lieber mit offenen Karten spielen. Der Abschied wird uns sicher nicht leicht fallen, doch manchmal ist es besser, Dinge zu beenden, bevor sie zum Zwang werden und sich nicht mehr wie ein Abenteuer anfühlen.“ Das aktuelle Album „Naturmystik“ und die Vinyl-Single „Zwischen zwei Welten“ sind in den Shops von Einheit Produktionen und Aethernaeum nun auch als reduziertes Package zu bekommen.  www.aethernaeum.de

Death Praising Tunes From Germany! 2008, in the dirty depths of Cottbus/Germany, the duo ARROGANZ started up to exhale their own infernal visions of blackenend death metal.
3 years are gone since “Tod & Teufel”, the last ARROGANZ album came out. Now the time has come, to dismise the next black Souls' sounds, called simply "Primitiv". But no, it doesn't sound primitive or simple, here waiting 6 new songs & with no doubt
  ARROGANZ' best written material so far.
It would be just to easy to call it Death Metal, Black Metal or blackened Death Metal… whatsoever-it's more than this.
The work of Timo Rotten & the legendary Mister van der Lubbe is crucial for the sound,
 
intensity and wickedness again on "Primitiv"!

Unsere NOIZGATE Records-Labelfamilie hat Zuwachs bekommen: Wir freuen uns sehr, OPERATION CHERRYTREE an Bord begrüßen zu dürfen!
OPERATION CHERRYTREE, das sind Wyno, Sieks, Jansen und CH - vier Weltenbummler, die das Schicksal irgendwo in Norwegen zusammengeführt hat. Zum Glück! Denn die Vier haben viel erlebt, viel zu erzählen. Und jede Menge Output!
Eine gute Dosis Seattle-Attitude schwingt im Sound des Quartetts mit. Bay-Area-Lässigkeit. Ein bisschen Texas-Blues. Lebensart, Schwermut, Nostalgie. Aufbruchsstimmung. Experimentierfreude. Mal stinksauer, mal melancholisch, mal wunderschön. Immer unkonventionell, voller leidenschaftlicher Riffs, packender Beats, pulsierender Grooves und furioser Soli. Und über allem Sänger Wynos großartige Stimme, deren Spektrum von angepissten Shouts über hypnotische Spoken-Word-Einlagen bis hin zur bittersüß-epischen Melodie reicht.
Auch bei OPERATION CHERRYTREE freut man sich auf die Zusammenarbeit: "Das was wir tun, erfüllt uns sehr. Es ist ein absolutes Privileg sich künstlerisch ausdrücken zu dürfen und dies Menschen zu präsentieren, die unsere Musik verstehen oder es einfach nur genießen. Mit NOIZGATE Records haben wir ein sehr familiäres Label gefunden und einen starken Partner", so Wyno. "Darüber sind wir sehr dankbar und freuen uns auf dass was da nun kommt. Godspeed!"
Und es ist auch schon Land in Sicht: Denn das erste Album ist bereits in Arbeit und soll noch in diesem Jahr bei NOIZGATE Records erscheinen. Weitere Infos zu OPERATION CHERRYTREE findet Ihr auf der Homepage der Band unter

Werte Musikmenschen!
Die raue See, der böige Wind, das Reizklima:  Möglicherweise sind Menschen von der Nordseeküste tatsächlich robuster als Bewohner aus anderen Teilen der Republik.
Während im Breisgau die meisten Sonnenstunden gezählt oder am Bodensee der Sekt ganzjährig in freier Natur geschlürft werden kann, lebt man in Wilhelmshaven unter klimatisch deutlich harscheren Bedingungen.
Auf b.o.s.c.h. hat dieses zweifelsohne abgefärbt.
  Die kompromisslose Härte der Band, ihre unverwechselbare Mischung aus Metal, Punk, Rock, Hardcore, Thrash und elektronischen Versatzstücken, spiegelt sich auch in ihrem künstlerischen Credo wider:
„Wir machen Krach!“ erklärt Gitarrist Christian ´Ledde` Heil und bringt die Philosophie seiner Gruppe auf den Punkt:
„Bei uns wird oldschool gerockt, bis die Hose flattert.“
Heil beschreibt damit das Bühnenkonzept von b.o.s.c.h., das statt durch übertriebenen Technik-Schickschnack mit vorgeglühten Röhren-Amps besticht und von einem dermaßen erbarmungslos marschierenden Schlagzeug/Bass-Takt angetrieben wird, wie man es sonst nur in der Stahlindustrie von Hammer und Amboss kennt.
Es sind diese eindrucksvollen Parameter, die nicht nur für b.o.s.c.h.-Konzerte, sondern auch für ihr neues Album "Fleischwolf" gelten.
Die Scheibe erscheint am 13. Oktober 2017 über Laute Helden/SPV und könnte eine Ära einleiten, in der harte deutsche Musik nicht mehr automatisch nur mit Rammstein, Oomph! oder Megaherz gleichgesetzt wird.

In the following year they started together with producer Stefan Traunmüller [RAUHNACHT, GOLDEN DAWN] to arrange and record four songs for their demo 'Nahash' which was unleashed upon mankind in late 2013.
Without any further delay NOCTURNE entered Soundtempel Studio [Freilassing, GER] once again in 2014 where all strings and vocals for the upcoming album were recorded, drums have been nailed at KK-Studios [Salzburg, AUT], engineered by Krystian Koenig.
For NOCTURNE's self-titled debut album nine songs have been produced, featuring a crushing cover of DE INFERNALI's 'Sign Of The Dark' with original vocalist Dan Swanö [NIGHTINGALE, EDGE OF SANITY, PAN.THY.MONIUM, BLOODBATH, etc] on mic.
The debut album was mixed by Stefan Traunmüller at Soundtempel Studio [Freilassing, GER] and mastered at NECROMORBUS Studio [Stockholm, SWE] by Tore Stjerna. All artwork was handled by promising young artist Ceethava [GER].
NOCTURNE managed present the first official full line up in 2017 and played several gigs in Austria and abroad.
Also in early 2017 the second full length album ‘The Burning Silence ‘ was finished and will be released on the 16.12.2017 by austrian underground label TALHEIM RECORDS to which NOCTURNE has signed as a roster band. Hail darkness!

BIO
The brainchild of Erik Ogershok, COTS was initially manifested in the winter of 2006. Several local appearances and lineup fluctuations later, life happened, and the project lay dormant. 2014 saw the return of Ogershok as he recruited new musical personnel in the form of drummer Adrian Voorhies of the Austin-based Black Metal outfit HUMUT TABAL and once more brought the doom ensemble to life to melt the faces of all who sought shade in the Canyon walls.
After numerous regional gigs both opening for touring colleagues and spearheading an array of craft beer events and festival slots (including two SXSW appearances), the band closed the year with a blistering performance at the End of the World Fest in Houston alongside Austin brethren The Sword and Eagle Claw. 2015 saw the creation of the band's first recording, a self-titled EP solidifying the now scaled down duo of Ogershok and Voorhies as a force to be reckoned with in the Texas doom scene. 
With the EP capturing some attention, they embarked on a two-week tour of the Midwest, bringing their signature brand of instrumental doom from the Twin Cities to Louisville. Once home, the band commenced production on their most ambitious musical effort yet with rare selected live performances across the lone star state. In October, they headed back into Wooden Horse studios with an A-list production team of Zawicizuz (The Black Moriah) and Proscriptor McGovern (Absu) and their sophomore offering was forged. Now, as the band prepares to release The Desert Winter, only one message can truly be counted on: Abandon All Hope.

Over two years after the release of their sophomore album, DEVIL'S EMISSARY return with a new mini-album entitled DEMIURGE ASCETICISM. Pre-orders are now available and the mini-album will be released on 9 September 2017 via Third Eye Temple.
Stream the track “Black Hole Meditation” here:  https://soundcloud.com/thirdeyetemple/devils_emissary-black_hole_meditation
Demiurge Asceticism contains nearly 20 minutes of lunatic incantations, divided into three anthems praising the Harvester of Worlds – the great Swallower of Suns.
A Black Metal of Death, shrouded in the left hand path philosophy, is now carried on the banners of this ambitious Polish horde. The black metal formula, well-known from the two previous releases, has transfigurated into a death metal hybrid, but still honouring respect to the band’s roots. Low-tuned vibrations are raising the chants from the ancient tombs of this Emissary trio coming from the south of Poland. The Message of the slow-stepping Demiurge resounds with echoes of Australian, Greek and Canadian death metal roots.
It is the manifest of heaven's violent death - the will of those below as foretold in the Horizon Temple. Open to the pilgrims of fire. Become everything and nothing.

Greece's own rotten Death Metal savages NECROVOROUS are set to release PLAINS OF DECAY September 29 on Dark Descent Records. A vinyl LP version of the album is also in the works.
Known for their undying adoration for everything sleazy, macabre and genuinely disturbing, the NECROVORUS ghouls have risen from their crypt after years of hibernation and are staring at you with bloodshot eyes while brandishing scepters made of human bones.  The world's best attempts to keep from waken the beast have failed miserably. Proceed with cauthon, as the death metal equivalent of Jörg Buttgereit flick "Plains of Decay" is coming to melt with your brain.  To avoid fainting, keep on repeating ..."It's only a record... It's only a record... It's only a record..."
Track List
1. The Sun Has Risen in a Land I No Longer See
2. Cherish the Sepulture
3. Eternal Soulmates
4. Plains of Decay
 5. Psychedelic Tribe of Doom
 6. Faces of Addiction
 7. Red Moon Rabies
 8. Misery Loves Dead Company
 9. Lost in a Burning Charnel Ground
10. The Noose Tightens
BIO
NECROVOROUS was created in 2005 by Vangelis F. (Shit Eater - Drums) and  Periklis G. (Pig Fucker - guitars/bass/vocals).
Inspired by Death Metal and Grindcore gods such as:AUTOPSY, DR.SHRINKER, IMPETIGO, HELLHAMMER, ASPHYX, (early) DEATH, MASSACRE, NECROVORE, MASTER/DEATHSTRIKE, NECROPHAGIA, the band started spreading some serious havoc and rampage with a series of three demos (later re-released as a single tape).  In the beginning, the band's direction was pure gore, a sense of evolution and the stinking air of a more distinctive Death Metal approach started appearing with the recording of their side for the self-financed and sold out split 10" with MEATHOLE INFECTION (now GRAVE RITUAL). After the release of the split 10" the line-up collapsed, with only Vangelis F. remaining, a fact that lead to a short period of inactivity .
In early 2009, Kostas K. (also in EMBRACE OF THORNS) joined as a guitarist/bassist/vocalist. This was a beginning of a new morbid era for NECROVOROUS. The first born, putrid offspring of that unholy intercourse was the Crypt of the Unembalmed Cadavers 7" EP.  The debut full-length Funeral for the Sane (released in 2010) found NECROVOROUS more oppressive, filthy and ominous, causing some considerable stir in the worldwide underground.  The band went on to perform live, culminating in a performance at Killtown Deathfest along with FUNEBRARUM, GRAVE MIASMA, SONNE ADAM among others.  
The following years found our adorable ghouls getting back into their coffins with little to no activity.  However the split EP with the Japanese Deathmongers ANATOMIA received praise.  Everything seemed hopeless and decayed but 2017 brought the resurrection...

Greyhaze Records is proud to announce the September 8 vinyl LP reissue of 1987 classic Total Extermination from Brazil's EXTERMINATOR! Stream the album in its entirety at  https://greyhazerecords.bandcamp.com/album/total-extermination
Total Extermination is an intriguing, ferocious album that became the underground unholy grail. It was originally pressed in minuscule quantities (for 1980's standards), and never really had any type of proper distribution or promotional effort behind it. It just sort of appeared in the world and circulated in the worldwide Metal trading community. Regardless, it is relevant enough to have carved its own space and to have survived over the decades.
More importantly though, the album was one of the early sparks of Brazilian and South American Heavy Metal, decades ago. It was the first official record released by KRUEGER who would go on to be a founding member of the mighty SEXTRASH. It would showcase, to the deepest degree, aspects that would become marks of early Brazilian Metal: total, utter, and out of control savagery. As such, this album is now reemerging for those who wish to take a deeper plunge into the infamous Minas Gerais, Brazil, early Metal movement.

Here's a black/thrash metal band that's doing something out of the ordinary. Legendary guitarist Toby Knapp has used his experience of neoclassical metal music and applied it to AFFLIKTOR whilst retaining the underground aesthetics.

For fans of - SLAYER, TESTAMENT, INQUISITION, DESASTER, ARALLU, WAXEN, KREATOR, SODOM
Guitar legend Toby Knapp who has been involved in the creation of extreme metal music since the early 90s is here with his new band AFFLIKTOR. Playing scintillating black/thrash metal with wicked licks and seamless solos, Toby explores the genre and revitalizes it with his fresh outlook. It's uncommon to see mind-bending guitar playing while staying true to the raw and underground aesthetic of the style. The majestic artworks made by Mark Riddick only portray the dark and ambitious nature of AFFLIKTOR. The vision behind the band is unheralded in all its experimental, convoluted glory. Black/thrash metal never sounded this exciting.

The Chilean underground scene has thrived for aeons with great bands playing every brand of extremity. OCCASVS is both unique within that scene and a fitting encapsulation of it, combining black metal with death metal, heavy metal, and more.  They lay in wait for years as their long-in-the-works debut album was fine-tuned to their exacting standards. Now Nocturnal Majestic Mysteria is to be unleashed on the world.
A promo video for album track "Union" is available at this location. The song is an 8-minute odyssey through all of the band's startling blend of ideas and influences. Tremolo-picked riffs intertwine around blast beats, and the vocals are growled, shrieked, and even sung in eerie, stentorian harmonies.

The North East of Englands hardcore scene has faded into relative darkness compared to a decade or so ago, but there are a those who keep the torches burning. Durham riff merchants GEIST are one such band. With a sound that is self described as “...too metal for the punks and too punk for metalheads" and one that goes several steps further than the generic "mosh-core" that has encroached on the wider scene in recent years, GEIST have carved a dark, festering wound into the body of UK hardcore and with their latest offering, a single sided 12” LP and limited DIGI CD aptly entitled Disrepair, they show no sign of relenting.
Recorded by UK hardcore veteran Jason Frye at Century Audio and mastered by the legendary Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, Disrepair imposes 6 chaotic tracks of dark, crusty hardcore which transcends enough genre boundaries to appeal to fans of anything fast, heavy and loud but a concoction of bands akin to Cursed and Converge would define it perfectly.

It doesn't get bigger than this. Two death metal legends, who've been around for over 20 years actively in the scene, come together to record a jaw-dropping debut under the moniker of URSINNE.

'Swim With The Leviathan' is a lesson in death metal glory that encapsulates everything that makes the genre timeless.

FORGED IN BLACK – “SINNER SANCTORUM”
Genre: Heavy Metal
For fans of: Judas Priest | Candlemass | Grand Magus
Line-up:
Chris Stoz Storozynski - Lead Vocals
Andy Songhurst - Guitars
Kieron Rochester - Bass and Vocals
Chris Bone – Guitars
Kev Rochester – Drums
Forged In Black are the epitome of great heavy metal. With a heart of steel always at the core of everything they do, they reach out and draw in everything that’s great from across the metal map. Soaring, spiralling lead guitar work and the incredible vocals of front man Chris ‘Stoz’ Storozynski engage in aerial dogfights above a rugged, mountainous terrain of gritty riffs and a thunderous rhythm section. All the power and fury of thrash, the atmosphere, grandeur and emotion of doom and the epic scope and boundless energy of power metal are gathered in and poured into the burning elixir of Forged In Black’s unique take on the glorious metal art.
The band have been refining their sound and honing their skills since the release of their self-titled debut album, back in early 2013; first with The Tide, a four track EP and then with the single, The Exodus, produced by Romesh Dodangoda (Motörhead, Sylosis, Bullet For My Valentine etc ). By 2016 Forged In Black felt they had written the strongest set of songs of their career to date and headed into the studio with legendary producer Chris Tsangarides. Tsangarides has worked on some of the all time great metal albums, by the likes of Thin Lizzy, Judas Priest and Black Sabbath to name but a handful of the prestigious artists who have entrusted him with their work. Under his guidance Forged In Black created the Fear Reflecting Fear EP which set new standards for the band and gained them more critical acclaim than ever before.
Deciding not to mess with a successful partnership Forged In Black and Chris Tsangarides reunited this year to work on the successor to Fear Reflecting Fear and on September 2nd it will finally be unleashed. Fear Reflecting Fear may have set new standards for Forged In Black, but Sinner Sanctorum shatters them into a million pieces, as it rockets to unprecedented heights for these metal warriors. Sharper, more focussed, more accomplished and infinitely more powerful than anything they have released before, Sinner Sanctorum dares to stand tall beside the illustrious releases of Chris Tsangarides past work. No metal heart can remain unmoved by songs such as ‘Crimson Echoes’ or ‘Pay The Price’.
All the dedication to their craft and tireless work on the road with the likes of Breed 77, Savage Messiah, Praying Mantis, Beholder, Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth), Neverworld, Alwaid and The Deep, amongst others, has brought Forged In Black to a place of supreme ability and confidence – which can be heard in every note of Sinner Sanctorum. The time for Forged In Black to take their place in the ranks of the metal greats is drawing near...

It's not everyday that you hear of an Extreme Metal band from India touring Europe, representing the country. More over touring with Three other bands from Three Different continents.
Hi, this is Gurdip here from Mumbai, India. I play for GUTSLIT, a Brutal Death Metal band from India. The Oldest and the Biggest Brutal Death Metal Band from India.
We are touring Europe for the third time and have a tour lined up spanning over 5600 Kms and more than 6 countries.
I know it's not that big a deal for any band to do that in Europe, but it's the First and the only Indian Death Metal band ever to be able to do this.
We are touring with three other bands, making this a "Four Bands from Four Different Continents" tour. One of it's kind.
We are also releasing our new album titled, Amputheatre on this tour in Europe. Again, the only Indian Extreme Metal band to be doing this.
Personally, I have worked tirelessly over the last 10 years to get this band at this level and come from a country where getting a decent venue back then was almost impossible.
From playing in Garages to playing Mainstage at BRUTAL ASSAULT 2015, we have come a long way and the journey has just started.
We would love to know if you could help us with any digital or media promotion and coverage for the same. Even a word or two to your contacts would help.
And if you can make it to any of our shows, that will be superb.
Being the only Indian extreme metal band who is touring so extensively with a Zero Buy On show and a stable backline, we have a milestone of a tour.
No Indian extreme metal band has ever been able to do this big a tour nor be able to get a full backline support for the tour.
The whole list of shows, tour posters, band profiles and other necessary information will be attached or mentioned below.
Hope you can help us with the same.

SUTEKH HEXEN / BLSPHM - SPLIT 7" 
American Black/Noise Terrorists Release Infamous 2014 Tape Split as Limited 7".
Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide -  we're happy to present you with the final and ultimate form of Sutekh Hexen and BLSPHM's 2014 infamous tape split - now finally available in vinyl format as a dual-colored 7" enhanced by staggering DIY/hand made packaging.
Originally released by Dead Accents in 2014 as 50 hand-numbered cassettes, to coincide with Debacle Fest 2014, this release sees the two entities tread shadow and reap flesh at the peak of their game and in their period of maximum splendor. With each band spewing forth one spasm each of nerve-shattering audial terror, both movements can be seen as opposite sides of a dark prism which reflect light in different ways, but which both work in harmony to summon a darkened and wretched chasm of aural blight that envelops the listener like a ghostly deluge, wrecking unholy havoc upon their senses.
While this split saw Sutekh Hexen's infamous abyss of raw black metal, harsh noise, and drone combust with unseen vigor, and BLPHM's blackened industrial terror ascend to unthinkable qualitative heights, the original extremely limited tape vanished quickly from the market rendering the release both unfindable and somewhat forgotten - a fate much too unfair for such an iconic and masterful accomplishment in recent extreme underground music history.
As such we could not be happier to bring you the second and ultimate incarnation of this gloriously wretched split as a dual color vinyl 7", elegantly enhanced by a die-hard hand made packaging consisting of a black heavy cardstock flap, each copy letterpressed one by one by hand with silver inks by Demian Johnston of BLSPHM  himself. The standard and more widely available edition will be available as purple vinyl, while a limited edition black vinyl will also be available in extremely small quantities and with a slightly more elaborate look given by a letterpressed OBI strip. The staggering layout was designed by Sutekh Hexen founding member Kevin Gan Yuen using source imagery hand-drawn by surreal horror art luminary Stephen Wilson, while the original songs were remastered for vinyl by none other than James Plotkin himself.

 NEWS 4.8. 2017

ARCKANUM – „DEN FÖRSTFÖDDE“
ARCKANUM gehören zweifelsfrei zu den legendären Bands der schwedischen Black-Metal-Szene. Seit 25 Jahren ist das Soloprojekt von Shamaatae aktiv, der inzwischen auf acht Studioalben sowie verschiedene Splits und EPs zurückblickt. Gerade seine Frühwerke "Fran marder“ und "Kostogher“ zählen zu den Kult- sowie Must-Have-Alben der Szene. Nach dem Erscheinen von "Fenris kindir“ (Season Of Mist Underground Activities) war es einige Jahre ruhig um ARCKANUM. Nun meldet sich der Schwede ein letztes Mal zurück – und zwar mit einem vollen Album, statt mit der ursprünglich geplanten EP. Das neue Album bedeutet gleichzeitig das Ende der Reise von ARCKANUM.
 "Den Förstfödde" (zu deutsch: Der Erstgeborene) ist Jörmungandr, dem ersten Sohn von Loki und Angrboða, gewidmet, dessen gewaltige Macht die Welt umgibt. Textlich ist das gesamte Werk in schwedischer Sprache verfasst. Musikalisch zeigt sich ARCKANUM gewohnt dunkel, spirituell und magisch. Die Songs sind Beschwörungen, Gebete und magische Formeln, entworfen, um die schwarzen Flammen der geduldigen Mächte in den Anhängern Ragnaröks zu entfachen: "Blow your venom and stretch your wings oh Mighty Dragon!"
 Aufgenommen und gemastert wurde das Album von Peter Asp, mit dem Shamaatae auch für den Mix zusammengearbeitet hat. Als Gäste finden sich auf "Den Förstfödde" Set Teitan (Gitarren-Soli in den Songs "Likt Utgårds Himmel", "Ofjättrad" und "Låt Fjalarr Gala" sowie im Chorus von "Likt Utgårds Himmel", "Låt Fjalarr Gala" und "Du Grymme Smed", Darby Lahge (Näverlur in ”Kittelns Beska”) sowie Ljuder Stefan Westberg (Violine in "Ginnmors Drott").

US band MINDKULT are turning the genre on its head. Stepping out of the confines of what can be called doom, they are going back in time musically to create all over again raw, heavy and stoner-tinged music that oozes horror appeal and bears a soothing post-punk sensibility. Call it doom, stoner or even shoegaze, all of it is correct because it's a distilled blend to forge a sound that MINDKULT can call it its own. Nostalgic and dark, this is the band's much-awaited debut full length that displays rare charisma and soulful expression.
