      !!!THE END IS NEAR!!!
THORMESIS: "THE SIXTH" erscheint am 08. März 2019.Der Release des mittlerweile sechsten Thormesis Albums, welches schlicht und treffend "The Sixth" betitelt ist, rückt näher!
Am 08. März wird der knapp 45 minütige Silberling, welcher zweifellos den bisherigen Höhepunkt des musikalischen Schaffens des Quartetts darstellt, über MDD Records erscheinen. Das Album wird als hochwertiges DigiPak und erstmals in der Bandgeschichte auch als Vinyl veröffentlicht. Zudem wird es für Vorbesteller eine exklusive und limitierte Box Edition geben, deren genauer Umfang und Aufmachung im Moment aber noch ein Geheimnis bleiben soll. Einen ersten Blick gibts zumindest anbei schon einmal auf das Coverartwork. Ein erster akkustischer Eindruck wird ebenfalls nicht mehr lange auf sich warten lassen: Bereits in der ersten Februarwoche wird mit "Thy morbid drunken Ways" die erste Song & Video Auskopplung die Wartezeit aufs Album verkürzen! Seid gespannt!

MAMA JEFFERSON – “JIZZMAG “
Und was wenn wir dir sagen, dass die Zahnfee heute Morgen von Mama gefeuert wurde? Mama ist der Meinung, dass man für Liebe kein Geld bezahlen muss und Mama sagt du sollst laut Rock'n'Roll hören, JA sagen, gutes Bier trinken, hinterfragen, geniessen, mit vollem Mund sprechen, Delfindokus schauen, zwei unterschiedliche Socken oder blaue Haare tragen und lieben und leben, als wärst du nie verletzt worden! Mama regt Deine Fantasie an, sie schürt Erwartungen, um sie im nächsten Moment wieder über den Haufen zu werfen. Mama entführt Dich in ihre Welt, erzählt Dir
Geheimnisse, welche zuvor noch niemand je gehört hat und bringt Deinen Körper zum Beben. Eine Show, endlos frech, voll Tätschbumkrach, Liebe und ganz viel Konfetti in der Unterhose.
Scheiss auf Konventionen, scheiss auf die Zahnfee - Mama mag dich und das solltest du sie besser auch.
Mama Jefferson - Ein lautes und charmantes Zürcher Trash Rock Trio rund um die Frontfrau und Bassistin Vanja Vukelic. Saufreche Rockriffs begatten eine unverblümten, rauhe Stimme, welche nicht um jeden Preis schön sein will, aber um jeden Preis echt und ehrlich sein möchte. Ausgestattet mit einer gehörigen Portion Eier und einer Prise Übergeschnapptheit waren die drei Turteltauben die letzten 18 Monate mit ihrer EP 'Best Of' in aller Munde - Airplay auf SRF 3, Artist To Watch auf 20min, Festivalkonzerte u.a. am Blue Balls Luzern, an den Winterthurer Musikfestwochen und eine Russlandtournee waren die Highlights 2017/2018.
Jetzt, Anfang 2019 gibts was Neues was auf die Ohren, denn die drei Wilden veröffentlichen ihr Debutalbum "Jizzmag" am 01.03.
In Deutschland sind sie am 08.03. im Berliner Wild At Heart zu sehen!
Vanja Vukelic - vocals, bass
Silvan Gerhard - guitar
Mattia Ferrari - drums
Und die drei sind nicht nur die schönstenu und tollsten Interviewpartner und Menschen, sie haben auch richtig was zusagen. Schon allein die beiden Singles "Media" und "Banana White House"(Vö 18.01.) sind da mehr als ein Wink mit dem Zaunpfahl. Melde dich gern bei Interviewinteresse.

THE OSSUARY – “SOUTHERN FUNERAL”
Genre: Doom Metal
Label: Supreme Chaos Records
Vertrieb: Cargo Records
VÖ: 25.01.2019
Geht es dir wie uns und du vermisst die authentische, erdige Kraft des klassischen Heavy Rocks? Jener Heavy Rock, der sogar noch eine gewisse Nähe zum Prog im eigentlichen Sinne offenbart und die frische Wildheit der ersten Metal-Bands der 70er Jahre, als der Begriff Heavy Metal so noch gar nicht existierte, in sich birgt? Wenn es dir auch so geht, dann sind THE OSSUARY genau dein Sound!
Scheiß auf Trends, scheiß auf Moderne! Bei THE OSSUARY regiert ein Sound aus Sabbath-artigen Riffs, düsterer Pentagram-Atmosphäre und melodischen Thin Lizzy-/Wishbone Ash-Melodien und guten alten Iron Maiden-Gitarrenleads. Prog-Passagen, die einstige Captain Beyond ehren, finden sich im THE OSSUARY-Klangkosmos ebenso wie epische Ausschweifungen à la Rainbow.
Die Band wurde erst im Oktober 2014 in Süditalien aus der Taufe gehoben, fühlt sich in ihrem Sound aber in einer längst vergangenen Zeit wieder. Von Beginn an werkeln die Herren fleißig an Songs, nehmen Demos und Promos auf und erarbeiten sich in ihrer Heimat einen ersten, sehr achtbaren Bekanntheitsstatus.
Liebhaber von Heavy Rock und Doom fühlen sich in der Welt von THE OSSUARY schon beim ersten Riff wohl. Kurz vor der Veröffentlichung ihres Debütalbums „Post Mortem Blues“ unterschrieb die Band bei Supreme Chaos Records. Von da an gibt es nur noch eine Mission: den altehrwürdigen Sound in der ganzen Welt zu zelebrieren. Seit der anschließenden Europa-Tour baut die Band ihren Status fortwährend aus und auch die Presse zeigte sich von den Qualitäten mehr als angetan.
Jetzt umgibt uns erneut der wundervoll-modrige Geruch der Vergangenheit, und auch die ersten Staubwölkchen rieseln wieder – denn THE OSSUARY sind zurück!
Das Zweitwerk heißt „Southern Funeral“ und legt noch mal eine Schippe oben drauf: mehr Drive, mehr Melancholie und einfach mehr von allem!

PUBLIC GRAVE – “CADAVEROUS RESSURECTION”
Release date: 07-01-2019
Genre: Death Metal
Label: RTM Productions
Initially inspired by Kataklysm and Six feet Under and the fascination for all kind of undead, guts and gore, Germany's Public Grave‘s music aligns to death metal axioms. Their neck breaking groove is like a hammer smashing through a billion bodies, with their monstrous sound growls with a high-pressure bass shaking you to the core. 
Bassist Korny comments: “Cadaverous Resurrection is a concept album about the current state of our society. The social sickness makes us mad and we want to get rid of apple-polishers acting without thinking.” The lyrics contain the actions with which one wishes to cause harm to those who live with disturbing degradations of some fundamental values. Maggot Infested Limb Removal and Cranium Crush Fest show the anger even in their titles. By gross exaggeration, Public Grave created an absurdly brutal album with apocalyptic scenarios and zombies symbolizing our current state of society. After releasing Exhumed Corpses Undead Forces, the first single of the album, fans and befriended musicians said: “Take me from behind by force, that song got balls!”, and that they surpassed themselves again in devastating brutality. 
Public Grave consists of four musicians, all involved in songwriting. Korny plays the bloodthirsty bass and Chris body-slamming riffs on his guitar. Beni unleashes the ramming rhythms for Hamby’s demonic beast-like vocals. All together they create a devastating wall of sound one can’t escape.
Line-up:
Christian Dalisda/Guitar
Christoph Hamberger/Vocals
Philipp "Korny" Hauck/Bass
Benedikt Eichenseer/Drums

BEGRIME EXEMIOUS Self-Releasing 'PRIMEVAL WASTELAND' Compilation in February .Edmonton (AB) - Long running Canadian death metal band BEGRIME EXEMIOUS will self-release compilation CD Primeval Wasteland to kick off 2019! The album, which compiles three EPs that were recorded in two sessions between October 2012 and February 2013, will be released on February 15.
Primeval Wasteland album stream and pre-order: begrimeexemious.bandcamp.com/album/primeval-wasteland
With 14 tracks clocking in at 60 minutes, this compilation highlights a period of time in which BEGRIME EXEMIOUS operated as a quintet between their second and third albums.
The first half of the compilation is comprised of the Primeval Satellite mLP, originally released by DARK DESCENT RECORDS in 2014. During the recording of these songs, the band opted to re-record some additional tracks, which ended up being released as an exclusive tour tape for their west cost US/Canada tour in 2013. Both of these releases have been long sold out since. Also featured is the Wasteland of Damnation EP, which was originally released as a 7" in 2013 on now the now defunct label FUEL INJECTED RECORDS. These songs were written and recorded almost immediately after the Primeval Satellite sessions. 
BEGRIME EXEMIOUS turned into their current quartet incarnation before Primeval Satellite was even released, but the band's lineup has remained stable since. The songs on the compilation were remastered by Cody Baresich at CIRCLE A STUDIOS in Victoria, BC. From the other side of Canada, Adam Kindred of Halifax, NS is responsible for the cover art. The booklet features all of the releases' original artwork by Dennis Thomsen, with the layout done by the band's frontman Derek Orthner.

1. Entrails & Barbed Wire   
2. BXH-42 Transition     
3. Silent Observer Older Than Earth

NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS NORDJEVEL REVEAL DETAILS OF, AND RELEASE VIDEO AND SINGLE FROM, UPCOMING ALBUM :
Norwegian Black Metallers NORDJEVEL, whose self-titled debut full-length album was released on Osmose Productions to great critical acclaim three years ago, are back with a vengeance with "NECROGENESIS", an album which sees the band's core of founder and vocalist Doedsadmiral (SVARTELDER, DOEDSVANGR, ENEPSIGOS) and bassist DzeptiCunt (ex-RAGNAROK), being joined by Destruchtor (MYRKSKOG, ex-MORBID ANGEL) on guitars and backing vocals, and Dominator (ex-DARK FUNERAL) on drums. 
The new arrivals have enabled NORDJEVEL to expand its musical horizons and produce an album that promises to be more ferocious than its predecessor, as Doedsadmiral explains:
 With the addition of Destruchtor and Dominator to the band's lineup, NORDJEVEL has never been so strong. "Necrogenesis" is a much darker and violent album. It is also more varied and mature, both musically and lyrically. We definitely did not want to get stuck in a rut and churn out an identikit version of our debut, and, fortunately, we all felt that we wanted to go in the same direction, so we were all able to work together extremely well on the new songs.  Having said that, "Necrogenesis" was a hard bastard of an album to complete, and at times we felt that the universe was conspiring against us, so it became a very personal album for all of us.
To give fans a taste of what they can expect from "Necrogenesis", NORDJEVEL have released a video for the opening track "Sunset Glow". The video, by Necrolust Productions, which was filmed during the band's 2018 appearance at the December Darkness Festival in Sweden, can be seen at
https://youtu.be/fprsKwAcAyY  and at https://youtu.be/m3rxs11amUs 
"Sunset Glow" has also been released as a single, and can be streamed or downloaded at the following
https://osmoseproductions.bandcamp.com/album/necrogenesis
Recorded at Velvet Recording in Spydeberg, Norway, "Necrogenesis" was engineered by Nordjevel and Christer Krogh, and mixed and mastered by Patric Darkhyrys at his WSL Studios in France.  With Artwork and layout by Vincent Fouquet of Above Chaos, tracklisting for "Necrogenesis"  is as follows
1. Sunset Glow
2. Devilry
3. The Idea Of One-Ness
4. Black Lights From The Void
5. Amen Whores
6. The Fevered Lands
7. Nazarene Necrophilia
8. Apokalupsis Eschation
9. Panzerengel
10. Venom Of Serpents (Bonus Track Vinyl, Digipack)
"Necrogenesis" is set to hit the streets on Osmose Productions on the 29th March in CD Jewel Case, Limited Edition CD Digipack (with bonus track), Limited Edition Double Gatefold Vinyl in Blood Red (with bonus track), Limited Edition Double Gatefold Vinyl in Black (with bonus track), Digital, and Limited Edition Audio Tape formats.

Here's the much-awaited follow-up album by the Australian band Illimitable Dolor that has members of The Slow Death, Horrisonous, Nazxul, etc. They released a stunning debut in 2017 and this one takes the sound forward in all possible ways. As was the case first time around, the band pays tribute to friend and The Slow Death band member Gregg Williamson who passed away and over here they've even named a song on the day of his demise. Check out the atmospheric death/doom music that the band delves into ever so gracefully here on Bandcamp and YouTube. Interestingly, they have not one but three different artworks for this release which have been used for the CD/Digital, LP and Box Set versions. 
ILLIMITABLE DOLOR (AUSTRALIA) - 'LEADEN LIGHT' 
Genre - Atmospheric Doom/Death Metal
Release Date - March 20th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Mournful Congregation, Slow, Evoken, The Slow Death, Chalice of Suffering, Towards Atlantis Lights
Australian atmospheric death/doom metal masters return after releasing a brilliant self-titled debut that was lauded the world over for its sincerity and purity of expression. 'Leaden Light' carries on where they last left, drenched in wistful melancholy and stirring up faded albeit rich memories. The sound is purer, more refined and clearer in expression than before, and lingers for long in your thoughts. With three artworks made for the CD, LP and box set editions exclusively, this is an ambitious release from the band that features some of the best music in the style without overdoing any aspect of it.

Hi – Chris and Paul from Imperative PR here. We are proud to announce that we will be working with Anthony Kaoteon to promote the debut release of his new metal project, DEATH TRIBE!
Forged in a cauldron of conflict, born of a fiercely independent spirit that refused to be broken and constrained by oppressive regimes and religious and political dogma, Beyond Pain And Pleasure: A DESERT EXPERIMENT is the story of one man’s unending defiance. Death Tribe is a raised fist in the face of corruption and domination.
Anthony Kaoteon, now a resident of The Netherlands, was born in Beirut and it was in that maelstrom of warfare and radical ideologies that the songs for Death Tribe were conceived. Refusing to accept the life that fate had decreed for him, Anthony fled Lebanon for Dubai where he found himself connecting with other rebels who had escaped the shadows of oppression. These kindred spirits contributed an array of visceral vocal performances to Beyond Pain And Pleasure..., bringing the album to raging life. Musically speaking, Anthony was able to complement his own remarkable skills with the experience and dexterity of drummer Mattias Landes (Dark Fortress) and bassist Linus Klausenitzer (Obscura) – a formidable team indeed! Speaking of his time working with Death Tribe Mattias Landes offered this evaluation,
“I think we succeeded in creating something really cool... All I can say is: expect the unexpected!"
Linus Klausenitzer has also expressed his pleasure at being invited to perform on Beyond Pain And Pleasure...
“This album is very diverse and full of energy. The Death Metal scene is still growing but I can see that a lot of bands forget about the intensity of this music. This album makes you feel like being at a metal concert! I am very happy that Anthony invited me to play on this album!”
Already known for his work with Kaoteon, Death Tribe is Anthony’s most powerful musical statement to date. So much more than a collection of songs, Beyond Pain And Pleasure: A Desert Experiment is a staggering achievement against all the odds, the sonic distillation of absolute defiance. This epitomises everything that metal was ever meant to be. Available from February 22nd 2019, Beyond Pain And Pleasure: A Desert Experiment draws on sounds from a myriad of different metal territories...heavy metal, death metal, black metal, thrash metal... they all contribute to Death Tribe’s DNA, each strand entwining with the next  to form this vibrant, vital, cohesive beast of an album.
"I dedicate this album to those who keep chasing their dreams, to every person that was born with a tag on his forehead and defied the world to make his own statement heard - I will die soon but the music stays to remind those who listen of a man who didn't obey"  – Anthony Kaoteon

THE SCARS IN PNEUMA - "THE PATH OF SEVEN SORROWS"
Release date: February 8th 2019
RIYL: Dissection, Mgła, Rotting Christ, Forgotten Tomb, Blut Aus Nord
Promethean Fire / Kolony Records are proud to present the debut album from Italian black metallers THE SCARS IN PNEUMA, fittingly titled “The Path of Seven Sorrows”.
THE SCARS IN PNEUMA (“The Scars in the Soul” – from “πνεύμα”, ancient Greek word for “breath”, “breath of life” and, in a religious context, for “spirit”, “soul”) recorded "The Path Of Seven Sorrows" at Elfo Studio in Tavernago (PC), Italy; mixing and mastering took place at Goblin Studio in Piacenza, Italy, with Daniele Mandelli at the helm.
THE SCARS IN PNEUMA initially started as a solo project of Lorenzo Marchello (vocals / guitars / bass) in the beginning of 2017, and it turned to a band when trusted musicians Francesco Lupi (guitars) and Daniele Valseriati (drums) joined the ranks later during the same year.
Musically, THE SCARS IN PNEUMA provides its own particular black metal style, which can be defined as a mix of black metal, death metal with melodic riffing and epic passages, with a touch of doomy mood. Some bands that can be cited as inspiration are Dissection, Mgła, Be'lakor, Rotting Christ, Forgotten Tomb, Blut Aus Nord, Emperor.
The band defy conventions and follow their singular muse, no matter the stylistic definition nor easy categorization. The band's base definitely began in black metal, but a open-ended and spiritual sort; from there, THE SCARS IN PNEUMA decided to integrate whatever felt necessary to express that muse, each step strategic yet unselfconscious.
Lyrically, THE SCARS IN PNEUMA is all about themes such as dealing with your own demons, life's biggest regrets, the passing of time, the beloved people we lost.
Promethean Fire / Kolony Records will release their debut album "The Path Of Seven Sorrows" on February 8th 2019.

About a month before the official release of their debut effort and after already sharing the single "Of Stone, Gold & Blood" on the digital platforms, Swiss Pagan/Folk-metalband NORVHAR just unveiled another track from this upcoming effort with "FEST IN MIDGARD" available right now on Bandcamp.
The song will feature on 'KAUNA', the band's first album coming out on February 16th 2019 for physical and digital formats.
Stream the tracks "Fest In Midgard" and "Of Stone, Gold & Blood" on Bandcamp.
...For the record...
Formed in 2016 from the ashes of the band Harmoniks,
NORVHAR is oriented towards pagan/folk/epic metal. It consists of six skilled musicians, all of them with stage experiences.
Those six friends offer a music which is inspired, epic, melodic, but which also makes you want to drink beers until the end of times. Vastly inspired by Tolkien’s universe, but also by Nordic mythology, the texts are dense and deep, filled with adventures and battles, with mystical tales and latent alcoholism.
The folk melodies, sometimes played on the keyboard, sometime on the flute or on acoustic instruments, intermingle with powerful and sharp guitars, all punctuated by intense bass and battle-like drums.
The vocals, straight out of the plains of Valhalla are calling the warriors to battle by their unquenchable fire.
NORVHAR is going to release an album at the beginning of 2019.
For fans of
 Moonsorrow, Ensiferum, Equilibrium, Finntroll, Wintersun...

Australian progressive doom metal band THE ETERNAL have released a new music video for the song ’Don’t Believe Anymore’ from their critically acclaimed album ‘WAITING FOR THE ENDLESS DAWN’.
Watch the video here:  https://youtu.be/POE1m3cl6ew
‘Don’t Believe Anymore’ was originally recorded by Australian band Icehouse on their 1984 album ‘Sidewalk’. On why The Eternal chose this song to be the bands first recorded cover song, Singer / Guitarist Mark Kelson elaborates: ‘Icehouse and frontman Iva Davies are firmly cemented in Australian music history and are a huge part of the sound of Australian music in the 80’s. I felt this song would sit so well amongst our other material and would also be a homage to our Australian heritage. I think this can bring to a wider audience, that Australians have been making dark and emotive music for a very long time’.
The video for ‘Don’t Believe Anymore’ has been beautifully put together by long time collaborators Red Tape Pictures in Brisbane, Australia and can now be viewed on the Inverse Records Youtube channel.
The Eternal have released their 6th full length studio album ‘Waiting For The Endless Dawn’ through Finnish label Inverse Records in August 2018. Featuring 75 minutes of dark melancholic progressive influenced Doom Metal including the epic 20 minute single ‘The Wound’. The band spent over 3 years writing and recording what can be best described as the bands darkest & heaviest album to date.
The album has been receiving rave reviews internationally and also finished in several ’Top 10 albums of 2018’ lists on major metal sites around the world. ‘Waiting For The Endless Dawn’ is now available on all major online services such as Spotify, iTunes & Apple Music through Inverse Records.
The current incarnation of the band featuring Mark Kelson (Alternative 4, Insomnius Dei, Cryptal Darkness), Martin Powell (My Dying Bride, Cradle of Filth, Anathema), Marty O’Shea (Dreadnaught) & Dave Langlands alongside the addition of renowned Australian guitarist Richie Poate (Dreadnaught).
‘Waiting For The Endless Dawn’ proves to be a heavy hearted, dark statement in the bands diverse and long career, which will see the band endeavouring to tour extensively and performing the album in it’s entirety in 2018 and beyond.

CRITICAL DEFIANCE goes straight for the jugular with their relentless and intricate brand of old-school thrash metal. Though spawned in the depths of Chile's underground, CRITICAL DEFIANCE bear all the markings of a band that came straight from the 80s Bay Area scene.
Following two demos and a limited-edition split with Santiago's PARKCREST, CRITICAL DEFIANCE signed with Unspeakable Axe Records for the release of Misconception. This eight-track album is an aggressive assault of violent riffs, shredding, yet melodic leads and shouted group vocals. Stream album track "What About You" at youtu.be/TxQ0WKquTPk

EXPERIMENTAL POST METALLERS KRAKOW REVEAL NEW STUNNING NEW  VIDEO .Norway's KRAKOW have revealed another stunning new video for a track from their latest album "MINUS".
The video, by Esteban Farias, is for the track "The Stranger" and can be seen at  
https://youtu.be/N27mhTwaRL8
Here is what the band have to say about the video:
Imagine a world where all you know to be true is also the opposite. Where every truth has an alternate side, and where there are heads on both sides of the coin and where the mirrors point both ways. Doesn’t take much to make that leap of faith, now does it? But still, beyond the second truth may be another, and another, and yet another version of reality. Layers, levels, dimensions, infinite snapshots of moments frozen in time, always existing yet forever lost. 
This is the gift The Stranger carries, as he walks towards you, kaleidoscope in hand and an inviting smile. Ahead of you is a journey through KRAKOW’s complete musical universe, a distillation of all that KRAKOW ever was or will ever be. All the same this is like nothing the band has ever created before - a perfect song, a perfectly told story, a perfect snapshot of the Krakowian spirit. 
The choice is yours now, and only you will see what is there for you to see.
Esteban Farias has outdone his talent on this one and truly capured the essence of The Stanger! Thank you.
"minus" was recorded in the famous Duper and Solslottet studios in the Bergen Kjøtt creative complex, in collaboration, once more, with Iver Sandøy.  It is, effectively,  two albums-worth of material distilled into one, very focussed, gem.  According  to the band, "minus" is "the pinnacle of achievement of KRAKOW’s thirteen-year existence, representing the bare essence of who KRAKOW are as individuals, as a group, and as story tellers.  It defies any attempts at genre definition, and covers the heavy, the subtle, the melodic, the atonal, the groovy, the sluggish, the dense, the airy, the naked, and always, always, that wall of sound from whence no light can escape.
Available on Karisma Records in Digipak, 12" Vinyl, and Digital formats, "minus" includes a guest appearance from  MOTÖRHEAD's Phil Campbell on the opening track, and ends with a choir consisting of a select group of Bergen-based musical veterans.
"minus" is available from all the usual retailers and streaming services, as well as direct from Karisma Records at:

Midnight Cruiser Records to Release CLOAK'S TWO HITS FROM HELL on 7" Vinyl .Midnight Cruiser Records is set to release Two Hits From Hell from Atlanta's CLOAK. This limited-edition 7" vinyl, which includes a cover track and an unreleased demo, is due out March 29.
Originally released as a free download, CLOAK’s cover of THE MISFITS classic “London Dungeon” is getting the vinyl treatment. Atlanta’s Midnight Cruiser Records will release the single as a limited 300-press 7”. The B-side features a unreleased early demo version of the song “Forever Burned” from their To Venomous Depths debut LP.

When we started our discussion of a cover we couldn’t agree on a single one until this one. The punk attitude has always been an important underlying factor within the world of Cloak. The Misfits shaped us in more ways than one so it’s only right for us to pay tribute on this Hallow’s Eve.”

TEMPESTARII - "TEMPLE OF SKIES"
Release date: 18-01-2019
Genre:  Atmospheric Black Metal
Label: Mercenary Musik
Tempestarii is an enigmatic anonymous black metal horde hailing from Boise, Idaho. Their debut full-length album “Temple of Skies” brings forth ardent visions from the other side, horizons reected upon the psyche. Tempestarii ebbs and ows through a realm free of spiritual surrender, one created by ritual and catharsis, unseen. Invoking the ancient storm, once called forth by black metal, these lamentations of sorrow and hatred erode the outside world and deliver a trance-like state, within. The whip that cracks the sky echoes forever in chaos, witness the illusions of Tempestarii. Recorded throughout the Twilight of MMXVI, “Temple of Skies” is a revelation of incandescent atmospheric black metal. 
The band states in an interview with Indymetalvault.com: “Temple of Skies is our invocation into the realm of the unknown. It is our exploration of inner turmoil, and the dimension that lies beyond that which is considered our present state. We do not linger in the wake of how anyone reacts to the art form. The album exists in its own rite, and holds a place as a keyhole to the door of our ritual. Just as anything organic has a short linear path, the album came into existence and now is but an energetic memory never to be performed again, as it has found an eternal resting place and we have now symbolically moved on to another black horizon.”

OSMED – “TERRITORY OF WARFARE”
Genre: Brutal Death Metal
For fans of: Disavowed | Devourment | Ingested | Disentomb
Label: Brute! Productions
Release Date: November 2018
On the field of combat there is no time for thoughts of mercy, there is only steel and blood. Life or death decided in the moment between each intake of breath; morality, nobility, chivalry...all but deadly luxuries, leading to a second's hesitation, an explosion of pain and a fall into eternal darkness. There can only be hack, cut, crush and kill, a continual, brutal repetition that earns the right to one more desperate gasp of air. Osmed are the sound of that primal struggle, the screams of triumph and dying and pain. Territory Of Warfare is their hymn to the final stand, to the one last kill, to the taste of blood and fear - their symphony of endless conflict.
Spawned in the oppressive heat of Jakarta in 2009, Osmed began life as a traditional death metal band. However, while the passage of time mellows most bands, Osmed became ever more violent, adding impenetrable layers of brutality to their sound as they progressed. By the time their first EP, Ultimate Of Realms Ruination was launched at the world by Brute! Productions, Osmed had become a savage beast, a war machine of wicked intent. The EP made an immediate impact, landing in No Clean Singing's top 15 EP releases of 2015, with the renowned site commenting on the "...astonishing displays of blast beats, amazing guitar and bass, and great vocals that just fit perfectly with the music."
A two track promo followed in 2017, featuring the songs 'Sanctity Of The Norm' and 'Human Case Hatred' which saw Osmed's descent into the depths of brutal death metal debauchery continue unabated.
Then, as the ashes of 2018 cooled, Osmed unleashed their ultimate invocation of the godless slaughter of battle. Built upon blast beats like canon fire, the riffs rising from the visceral swamp of filth and gore like unholy reanimated corpses, songs like 'Bloodshed' and the born again in filth 'Human Case Hatred' are savage beyond understanding. This is your chance to embrace the wild, sadistic butchery of Territory Of Warfare as Brute! Productions summon the dogs of war once more. Forget the shining armour and colourful flags, forget heroism and selfless bravery...this is the reality of the fight, this is the mud, guts and blood of Osmed!

New Jersey Blackened Death Metallers HATH will release their full-length debut album, OF ROT AND RUIN, April 12 on Willowtip Records. Of Rot and Ruin doesn't just live up to the promise of superb 2015 debut EP Hive; it more than surpasses it with impressive songwriting growth and a sonic intensity that penetrates deep into the bones.
The first taste of the new album comes by way of No Clean Singing's premiere of opening track "Usurpation." Check it out at this location.
HATH released the following statement concerning the giant steps the band took to reach Of Rot and Ruin:
"For the new record, we wanted to take everything we learned with the first EP and build off of it. 'Hive' was really a learning experience for us. AJ was in the process of building a proper studio and we were all figuring out the best ways to record and engineer an album. Once AJ's studio was up and running and with a few album releases under his belt, we felt confident in what we'd written and in his ability to produce a great album. The writing process for Of Rot And Ruin was much more deliberate than Hive. We really wanted to focus on songwriting and give special attention to how the songs and dynamics worked together. We strove for diverse yet cohesive songs. The result is a collection of songs that each have their own identity, yet all have the distinct Hath sound."
Track Listing
1. Usurpation
2. Currents
3. Rituals
4. To Atone
5. Withered
6. Worlds Within
7. Kindling
8. Accursed
9. Progeny
HATH is:
Frank Albanese - Guitar/Vocals
Greg Nottis - Bass/Vocals
Peter Brown - Guitar
AJ Viana - Drums
HATH Bio:
Hath started in 2014 as a project between Frank Albanese and AJ Viana. Greg Nottis joined on bass during the writing of their first EP Hive, which released in 2015 to generally high praise.
In early 2017 Hath began recording their first full-length record. 2018 saw a lot of changes for the band. Hath signed a deal with Willowtip Records, added guitarist Peter Brown to the band, and finished Of Rot and Ruin.

Kratzt euch den Staub aus den Ohren, denn endlich wird es im Hause WENDIGO konkret. Im Frühjahr 2018 haben die norddeutschen Stoner Rocker bereits ihr Debütalbum angekündigt, jetzt ist es endlich fertiggestellt. „WASTELAND STORIES“ wird am 03.03.2019 erscheinen und die erste Veröffentlichung seit der „Initiation“-EP (2016) darstellen. Das Album folgt einem losen Konzept, Einöde bzw. Einsamkeit wird in verschiedensten Schattierungen aufgegriffen und innerhalb des Konzepts ähnlich verschiedener Kurzgeschichten wiedergegeben. Dadurch sind die einzelnen Songs auf „Wasteland Stories“ sehr verschieden, bilden im Gesamten aber einen klaren roten Faden, der sich auch in den verschiedenen Einflüssen wiederfindet. Denn neben Stoner Rock sollen deutliche Referenzen aus den Bereichen Doom Metal, Sludge, Classic und Hard Rock und sogar etwas Black Metal zu hören sein.

WRETCHED FATE – “FLESHLETTING”
For fans of :  Bloodbath, Entrails, Aeon, and Cannibal Corpse - prepare to be stunned!
WRETCHED FATE is:
Adrian Selmani - Vocals
Mats Andersson - Guitars
Robin Magnusson - Bass
Samuel Karlstrand – Drums
Hello All, It has been a busy beginning to 2019 for me already, but today I'm proud to announce a very special release. I am predicting now that this release will be on some of the "BEST OF" Lists for 2019 - it's that damn good!!! A fantastic mix of old and new, Wretched Fate blend a bit of their native Swedish classic HM2 tonality with the ferocity and fury of modern Death Metal in the style of Bloodbath, Aeon, and Cannibal Corpse. There is not one filler track on the entire album - all songs are blistering, furious, intense, and immense! I can't stop listening to this album in entirety and hope you all feel the same when you are through.
Wretched Fate initially began in Dalarna, Sweden, as a two-man project in 2016, involving Mats Andersson (Guitar) and Adrian Selmani (Vocals). While missing the Swedish Death Metal "heyday" due to their age, books like "Swedish Death Metal" and "Blood Fire Death" fueled the duo's collective passion and enthusiasm alongside Mats fascination with horror movies of the 70's and 80's. These influences would become the cornerstone of what Wretched Fate has come to represent.
Soon after recording the first tracks of what would become Wretched Fate's debut album "Fleshletting", Robin Magnusson (Bass) of Incised caught interest in the project. With Mats and Adrian's desire to turn Wretched Fate into a full-time band, Robin as well as Incised drummer Samuel Karlstrand were added to the line-up.
Feeling that much of modern metal is formulaic, bland, and down right boring, Wretched Fate wanted to revive the greatness and restless energy found in Death Metal of the past and combine it with something bold and new - we believe the band have achieved this in spades on their debut album, Fleshletting!
Wretched Fate are pushing the boundaries of modern Death Metal to the brink with musical ability, pure ferocity, and a genuine honoring of all that has come before them. This debut is going to leave listener's absolutely flabbergasted!!
 Cheers,Thomas    PREORDER CD/Digital   VINYL PREORDERS coming soon...

DESERTED FEAR – Trikotsponsor der U14 von Science City Jena :  Motörhead, Iron Maiden oder Onkel Tom - wenn Bands zum Trikotsponsor werden, freut das den sportbegeisterten Metalfan. Besonders gut hat man es da in der Stadt Jena! Nachdem sich Heaven Shall Burn und die Wacken Foundation für die Fußballer vom FC Carl Zeiss Jena engagierten, steigen die Thüringer Death-Metal-Helden DESERTED FEAR nun als Trikotsponsor bei den U14 Basketballern von Science City Jena ein! Tolle Aktion für den kleinen Nachwuchs, wobei "klein" in dem Fall Ansichstssache ist.
Die Band kommentiert:
„Wir haben ja bis jetzt schon bisschen was erreicht, auf das wir als Band stolz sein können, doch das steht für uns persönlich über allem! Wer uns kennt, weiß, dass unser Herz neben der Musik unter anderem für Basketball brennt. Um als Mannschaft erfolgreich zu sein, braucht es letztendlich dieselben Dinge, um als Band erfolgreich zu sein: Disziplin, Teamgeist und den Glauben daran, sich seine Träume verwirklichen zu können! Der Verein macht eine tolle Jugendarbeit und vermittelt genau diese Werte, somit ist es eine Herzensangelegenheit dies zu unterstützen. Auf das die Jungs gesund durch die Saison kommen und viel Erfahrung sammeln!“

EMBRIONAL - "EVIL DEAD"
Release date: 10-01-2019
Genre:  Death Metal
Label: Self-Released
Polish death metallers Embrional return with a brand new album entitled "Evil Dead": a collection of tracks with fresh arrangements while applying emotions and ideas often deviating from the classic bands of this genre. This album is a whole new chapter for the band which just found their line-up stabilization and is on their way to find their own style and interpretation of the art.
"Evil Dead" is the band's third full-length and consists of 8 tracks that follow up on the horde's death metal insanity, resulting on a more mature record in terms of composition when compared to previous efforts. "Evil Dead" is a manifestation of dormant emotions such as angst and darkness and features heavy and crushing depressing sounds, with maniacal twists and turns. It will leave you disturbingly craving for more! Enter the abyss of the poisoned sounds of "Evil Dead".
Line-up:
Skullripper - guitar, vocals

SERRABULHO - "PORNTUGAL (PORTUGUESE VAGITARIAN GASTRONOMY)"
Release date: 1-12-2018
Genre: Party Death/Grind; Happy Grindcore; Goregrind
Label: Rotten Roll Rex
Portuguese farmers Serrabulho will release their third album "Porntugal (Portuguese Vagitarian Gastronomy)", in December, 15th via Rotten Roll Rex.
Porntugal features a wide variety of guest appearances. Besides the bagpipe, Ricardo Santos also plays rabel (similar to an archaic violin and descendend from the medieval rebec), tarota (a catalan wind instrument, that belongs to the Oboes family), adufe (a portuguese square drum), galician tambourine and vieiras (scallop shells). 
Manuel Meirinhos [Galandum Galundaina, Trasgo] contributes with additional vocals, sampling and bagpipe. Freaky, the crazy chihuahua barks (a lot) on the song Os Tintins do Tintin. Also, additional vocals throughout the CD were provided by Susana Lima and Hugo Picamilho [PadariaGang]. 
With Porntugal, Serrabulho focused on its Portuguese cultural/musical heritage and wrote an intense-yet-exotic album, with multiple layers that result in an ever-more-distinctive effort. 
The band also notes that a part of Serrabulho’s twisted aesthetic actually originates from the minds of two young ladies: “Susana Catalão, our most beloved lyricist, has penned the vast majority of the songs’ lyrics, delivering some of funniest stories, written in an exquisite way that lets us delve ever-deeper in our craziness. Meanwhile, Marta Peneda’s cover art has been the band’s calling card. Every time we talk to either Susana and Marta about some ideas we had, they return to us with even more deranged concepts than the ones we initially brainstormed.” 
Tracklist: 
01. She Drinks Milk 
02. Ela Fez-me um Grão de Bico 
03. Fecal Torpedo 
04. Pito Sem Penas 
05. Os Tintins do Tintin

PRION – “ABERRANT CALAMITY”
Genre: Death Metal
For fans of: Immolation | Krisiun | Hate Eternal | Morbid Angel
Label: Comatose Music
Release Date: February 22nd 2019
Erupting from the warped heart of chaos they come; a roaring, screaming, slithering mass of nightmares. Exploding through the walls of sleep they ravage your defenceless mind with visions twisted beyond comprehension. They tear down the doors which guard your sanity, they let loose every childhood fear kept locked away in darkness and drown your dreams in terror. And when your desperate cries and their screams of bloodlust become one, when the massacre of your sanity is mirrored in the agonized contortions of your body, in that moment you will understand the true meaning of Aberrant Calamity!
From the humble beginnings of their '99 Corpse Dissection demo to their gargantuan Uncertain Process album, Prion have been developing their weaponry, honing their skills and edging ever further from the path into the uncharted wild woods of barbarity. Now, after nearly four years obscured from sight, lost in the mists of silence, they have returned, bringing with them their most formidable work to date...Aberrant Calamity is the sound of massive, irreparable damage, a sonic vision of a brutalised reality. This fourth full length album from the diseased Argentinean death machine consumes you like uncontrollable spontaneous combustion, igniting on impact with your eardrums. To be exposed to the bone grinding horror of songs like 'Pathological Self Destruction' and 'I Remembered To Breath' is to be incinerated from within. Aberrant Calamity is the first Prion album to feature new drummer Flavio Coscarella and his breathtaking speed and skill behind the kit has definitely helped lift the band's music to new levels of demonic insanity.
Scheduled for a February 22nd 2019 release through Comatose Music, the home of death metal's most malicious monsters, Aberrant Calamity will be the standard of brutality to which others will aspire. Prion have returned and there will be nowhere you can hide. There will be no safe spaces and no sanctuary from these decimators of dreams.
For a first taste of Prion's world of nightmares head to Slam Worldwide, where a new video for the track 'Observed Relativity' is being exclusively unleashed!

“STAND UP AND FIGHT” will be the title of the third full-length from portuguese crossover/thrash collective BOOBY TRAP, which is set to be released on March 2019 via Firecum Records and with exclusive distribution by Glam-O-Rama.
With 13 new tracks, “Stand Up And Fight” will feature special guests such as Lex Thunder (Midnight Priest/Toxikull) and Ines Menezes (Albert Fish, ex-Asfixia, ex-Nostragamus), among others.
Recorded and produced by the band itself in their own recording studio between September and December 2018, Booby Trap continues to showcase their distinctive crossover/thrash sound heavily influenced in the 80s and 90s scene, while applying technical elements that can be considered unusual for this genre.
Lyrically, the band continues to explore those segments of society which oppress the people. Other topics include the freedom of thought, religion, war, politics and pollution. Artwork was conceived by Deivis Tavares and, accordingly to Booby Trap’s vocalist Pedro Junqueiro, “it intends to convey that feeling of struggle against the established sedentarism, against everything that oppresses us, and the lethargy and comfort of modern times which doesn't make us move our asses and fight for what is ours by right."
Tracklist :
- Stand Up And Fight
- Set The World On Fire
- Big Disgrace
- O Bom, O Mau e o Filho da Puta
- Fuckers
- A Message Of Love
- Spiders
- Full Of Shit
- I’d Rather See You Dead
- Psycho Trap
- Alcohol
- Bombing For Oil
- The Ritual

TEMPESTARII - "TEMPLE OF SKIES"
Release date: 18-01-2019
Genre:  Atmospheric Black Metal
Label: Mercenary Musik
Tempestarii is an enigmatic anonymous black metal horde hailing from Boise, Idaho. Their debut full-length album “Temple of Skies” brings forth ardent visions from the other side, horizons reected upon the psyche. Tempestarii ebbs and ows through a realm free of spiritual surrender, one created by ritual and catharsis, unseen. Invoking the ancient storm, once called forth by black metal, these lamentations of sorrow and hatred erode the outside world and deliver a trance-like state, within. The whip that cracks the sky echoes forever in chaos, witness the illusions of Tempestarii. Recorded throughout the Twilight of MMXVI, “Temple of Skies” is a revelation of incandescent atmospheric black metal. 
The band states in an interview with Indymetalvault.com: “Temple of Skies is our invocation into the realm of the unknown. It is our exploration of inner turmoil, and the dimension that lies beyond that which is considered our present state. We do not linger in the wake of how anyone reacts to the art form. The album exists in its own rite, and holds a place as a keyhole to the door of our ritual. Just as anything organic has a short linear path, the album came into existence and now is but an energetic memory never to be performed again, as it has found an eternal resting place and we have now symbolically moved on to another black horizon.”

ENON CHAPEL: Indy Metal Vault premieres "Miasma From The Charnel House" from Victorian Era London-inspired black metal unit!
Indy Metal Vault is hosting the premiere of "Miasma From The Charnel House" by American black metallers ENON CHAPEL; the track hailing from the band's first, self-titled, EP.
Stream ENON CHAPEL's "Miasma From The Charnel House" at Indy Metal Vault
RIGHT HERE.
ENON CHAPEL is the new side project of Meghan Wood (Crown of Asteria, Iarnvidjur) and Balan (Palace of Worms, Botanist, Ordo Obsidium).
The project was inspired by their mutual interest in the darker aspects of Victorian Era London and in particular the tale of Jack The Ripper and the burial crisis of the first part of the century which saw London cemeteries literally bursting with rotting corpses - the result of a massive population surge.
Taking influence from the raw and ravaged sound of lo-fi black metal basement dwellers such as Ildjarn, Bone Awl, Cult of Daath, Les Legions Noire, and The Black Twilight Circle, then injecting the sound further with punk and thrash elements, ENON CHAPEL has crafted a raw, visceral burst of darkness straight out of the crumbling crypts of Highgate Cemetery.
"Enon Chapel" will be released on February 1st, 2019, on cassette tape and Bandcamp via Acephale Winter Productions.
Tracklist:
01. Eldrich
02. Miasma From The Charnel House
03. Anatomy Murder
04. Seance
05. The Lodger
06. The Unscrupulous Reverend Howse

Experimental black/death metal masters Veilburner release an astounding new track through reputed US site Invisible Oranges AT THIS LINK. Here's what the writer had to say about it -
"Veilburner have cultivated a reputation for themselves in no small part due to their trailblazing unpredictability, and this is no less true with their latest effort"
VEILBURNER (US) - 'A SIRE TO THE GHOULS OF LUNACY'
Genre
- Black/Death Metal
Release Date - December 28th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity (India)
For fans of - Deathspell Omega, Behemoth, Gaerea, Mgla, Schammasch, Blasphemy, Mitochondrion
Veilburner from US have accelerated their growth and have presented mutated versions of their infamous black/death metal cacophony. This is complicated, unpredictable and frankly groundbreaking music in this style – no two songs are alike and go off in different directions after conjuring some of the most grotesque and vile music. This is experimental music of the highest level that manages to blend in weird passages, twisted solos and even singing in this intense black/death metal music, something that very few bands have managed to achieve without losing coherency and integrity. These are songs that will test your grasping power as there’s a lot happening at all times. The members have outdone themselves not just musically but also conceptually, creating special masks to bring to life their psychotic vision. This is yet another testament to the prowess and potential this style holds and how it can be elevated to new heights using experimentation while fanning the chaotic elements.

Greek technical death metal masters Cerebrum unleash a stunning new song via Decibel magazine AT THIS LINK. Here's what the writer Vince Bellino wrote about it -
"Chunky, rhythmic guitars and a very clear rhythm section drive the song, pulling the listener through an angular, neck-snapping death metal odyssey"
CEREBRUM (GREECE) - 'IRIDIUM'
Genre - Death Metal
Release Date - December 21st, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - (Mid-period) Death, Cynic, Atheist, Necrophagist, Archspire, Nile, Rings of Saturn
Greek technical death metal stalwarts release a mind-boggling album of intense and complex death metal music that doesn’t abandon soul and emotive values in favour of technicality. This is momentum-heavy, rhythmic and visceral death metal that remains challenging while not disrupting flow or memorability. This quality seems long forgotten in the race of being the fastest or most flamboyant, and that is the very reason this experienced band that once boasted of having a Nile member, George Kollias, in their ranks, stands out from the pack. With stunning artwork from Costin Chioreanu (At The Gates) and special mastering from Colin Marston (Gorguts), everything is ensured to provide maximum clarity despite prevailing (and essential) chaos, while retaining a human touch all along.
Band lineup  
Mike Papadopoulos – Guitar
Jim Touras – Guitar, Vocals

"PROFOUND”  is the debut full-length from danish melodic black metal duo SINNRS, which merges the furious brutality of extreme metal with the elegance of opera and classical music, offering a dimensional musical experience in pure dark matter. The juxtaposition of punishing guitar riffs and relentless blastbeats with symphonic arrangements and soaring vocals is fascinating in the way it highlights the inherent differences and similarities these genres have. While classical fans might balk at the savagery of Sinnrs’ sound, metal enthusiasts will enjoy getting swept up in the epicness the classical elements bring to the table. Whichever side you might fall on, “Profound” is an honest manifest that makes a wonderful spectacle out of rather unlikely pairing.
The album was mixed and mastered at the Hertz Studios in Poland (Behemoth, Vader and Decapitated).
Label: Self-released
Genre: Orchestral Black/Death metal – Dark matter
Tracklist:
01. Nihil
02. To Derive Eden's Flame
03. The Storm of I
04. Lift My Bones
05. Renowned Praetorians
06. No Promise to Mankind
07. It Calls Me
08. Et Sic Incipit

Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide - we're happy to present you with the imminent release of VOID OF INFINITE HORROR, the sophomore LP from UK-based black/death/noise entity VESSEL OF INIQUITY.
Once again crafted and home-recorded in total seclusion, within these five new jagged wounds of deconstructed and malformed sonic terror, sole mastermind A. White has taken his horrific strain of noise-infested black/death decimation to new and absolutely implausible heights of aural insanity. Void of Infinite Horror is a claustrophobic, abominable, twisted, and horrific mosaic of modern and visionary extreme metal which has once again managed to violently coerce together the grandiose and bludgeoning sonic warfare of black/death bands like Teitanblood and Impetuous Ritual, and the massacring industrial noise scarifications of entities like Gnaw Their Tongues, Sutekh Hexen, and Abruptum.
Invisible Oranges have exclusively just premiered the track Mother of Abomination from this upcoming offering of total sonic warfare, claiming that the track is “a five-minute bruiser steeped in swaths of grinding, churning noise“ - (you can read their feature and listen to track
HERE)
Void of Infinite Horror will come as a limited edition 45RPM black or sea blue vinyl LP with custom artwork, as a limited edition cassette tape, and digitally. All formats will also be available in the EU through Italian underground label Xenoglossy Productions.
Thank you as always for your time and attention given to our releases. Sincerely, Sentient Ruin

BIO
Originally formed in 2011 as a 5-piece band, THE BLANK STANDARD became known for awe-inspiring live performances across Chicago. Through the years following the initial foray onto the scene, the band has seen change and challenge. After the departure of several members in late 2013, Eric Burns (guitars) and Brandon White (drums, album vocals) continued on with the indispensable help of Paul Gravdal (album production/studio bass). Nearly 5 years later, pain and perseverance have resulted in the release of the band's self-titled debut album; an authentic representation of the power that the band brought live, and a bridge to the future, with the reemergence of THE BLANK STANDARD.
THE BLANK STANDARD is:
Brandon White - Drums, Vocals
Eric Burns - Guitars

10:13 will release debut album RESULT OF AN IRON AGE on January 24, 2019. The official video for opening track "Oathbade" is available at youtu.be/EINkKGmYvoc.  The track features a solo from guest guitarist Mario Romero and is also available for streaming/purchase at this location.
From the mind of multi-instrumentalist/composer Neil Carter and inclusive of a guest appearance by Derek Sherinian (PLANET X), Result of an Iron Age is a bleak, futuristic soundtrack to humanity's descent into a hellish, post-apocalyptic world. Indeed, the album's 11 tracks form a cohesive whole, a musical journey that transcends the common constructs of depressive black metal by seamlessly incorporating progressive elements, not the least of which includes rhythmic complexity, obsidian keyboard layering, penetrating samples, and even the periodic use harmonica to create an immersive experience that twists, churns, and chills to the bone.
Carter will be performing a series of local one-man shows with him serving as drummer playing along with the album.

BRICK BY BRICK – “ HIVE MENTALITY “
Raising a massive middle finger to the establishment, Hive Mentality is a battle cry to all that is wrong with the world, yet signifying that all is right with heavy music convergence. Epitomizing the tone of the title track “Hive Mentality”, track guest Jessica Pimentel (Alekhine’s Gun vocalist, Orange is the New Black actress) seethes “Get the fuck out of the way or get trampled,” with a ranting rage. Based upon true events, track five, entitled “Bar Is Open”, sums up BRICK BY BRICK flawlessly in their declaration of, “We live to drink/We love to fight/We bring the party/Rage through the night.” That statement is further emphasized by none other than guest vocalist Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste, Iron Reagan). The Acacia Strain’s Vincent Bennet further exudes the savagery of Hive Mentality with his vocal spot on “In The Ruins”, before the album reaches its apex with a blistering rendition of Motörhead’s “Iron Fist”, a sonically heated kick like a belt of Jack that Lemmy himself would have savored and tipped his hat to.
Vocalist Ray Mazzola says, “In was an honor to have our guest vocalists join us for this album. We wrote it knowing all along that Tony from Municipal Waste/Iron Reagan was going to sing on a ‘Bar Is Open’, and it turned out that a few of the more thrash-edged songs were inspired by him. Vincent of The Acacia Strain agreed to redo an old tune of ours, ‘In The Ruins’, that was featured as a limited edition run that he collaborated with us on. It needed to be heard internationally. Last but not least, Jessica Pimentel from Orange Is The New Black/Alekhines Gun was a perfect choice for the middle rant on ‘Hive Mentality’, portraying anger from a woman’s perspective.”
BRICK BY BRICK brings one metal riff after another, interwoven with slamming breakdowns and a relentlessly rhythmic battering. Hive Mentality transcends beyond genres – it embraces the angst within each soul from any heavy music scene and brings solace to every metalhead, muscle head, hardcore kid, and old school punk who’s been internally bleeding and eternally screaming in defiance.
Tracklist:
“Hive Mentality” featuring Jessica Pimentel (Alekhine’s Gun/actress)
“Bad Sign”
“Toe to Toe”
“Battleground”

DARK ESSENCE RECORDS RELEASES NEW SINGLE FROM DOOMSTERS SUPERLYNX .  Dark Essence Records have kicked off 2019 with the release of a new single taken from "NEW MOON, the upcoming full-length album from the Norwegian doom/psych trio SUPERLYNX
The single, for the track "Indian Summer", can be streamed or downloaded from the following
http://phonofile.link/indian-summer
SUPERLYNX's Pia Isaksen, who also did the artwork for "Indian Summer",  and for the album itself,  has this to say about the track:
Indian summer is one of the more feel good songs on the album where we focussed on bringing out the positive aspect about surviving hard times. It is a mental gathering of strength and a celebration of finally being able to let go and move on. The title Indian Summer represents something that comes late but which is good. The scream in the last part of the song took all I had, and it really felt like an act of banishing lingering trauma.
 SUPERLYNX  was originally formed as a duo  by drummer Ole Teigen and bassist/vocalist Pia Isaksen in 2013. However, after  meeting with guitarist Daniel Bakken, coupled with his performance during rehearsals, SUPERLYNX became a fully fledged trio.
"New Moon" will be SUPERLYNX's  second full-length album and was recorded by the band themselves, with a little help from Ole Jørgen Moe, who recorded their debut album.  Mixed  by the band’s long-time sound engineer Amund Tømmerbakke, and mastered by Fridtjof Lindeman at Strype Audio, tracklisting for "New Moon" is as follows:
01.   Hex
02.   Breath
03.   Becoming the Sea
04.   New Moon
05.   Indian Summer
06.   These Children that come at us with Knives
07.   Scarecrow
08.   Cold Black Sea
09.   The Groove
10.   The Thickest Night
Set for release of Dark Essence Records on  the 15th March "New Moon" will be available in CD, Digital, and Limited Edition moon-coloured vinyl formats, and is now available to pre-order from the following:

ZOHAMAH – “SPREADING MY ASHES”
Hailing from one of the more unlikely spots for metal, Israel, Zohamah have created a very unique an interesting combination of Black/Death/Doom unlike I've ever heard. It is powerful, dark, and moving - an album that takes the listener on a journey conjuring dark spirits and internal torment along the way...

FERNDAL – “SINGULARITÄTEN”
Style : Melodic Black Metal
Label : Einheit Produktionen
With „Singularitäten“ FERNDAL continue the path they began in 2016, interweaving (Black-) Metal with elements of classical music. Anybody expecting keyboard sounds and kitschy samples is utterly wrong: this is definitely not artificially inflated symphonic pop music ! Instead classic compositional structures are contrasted with those of Black Metal, transitioning and crossing over into each other: Black Metal songs in a classic outfit (piano quintet in e minor „Mother North“, a classic rendition of the Satyricon composition), classical composition with Black Metal sound („Serenade“) – and everything in between.
Thematically the album evolves around philosophical, psychologic and emotional aspects of  freedom and and existence – sometimes with cold precision, at other times with expressive power. Music and lyrics again were created by Lestaya and Sorathiel. Not only is the band´s new album significantly longer than its predecessor „Ferndal“ but it is also more diverse and darker: sophisticated and rousing melodic Black Metal!

CROMLECH - "IRON GUARD"
Digipack MCD
Epic Heavy Doom Metal ! Cromlech, hailing from Canada is faithful to its name. A cromlech, a massive and heavy stack of stones, well settled into the ground and indestructible. The band Cromlech evokes battles of the past, the spirit of eternal war in man.
The MCD Iron Guard gathers four tracks of epic, conquering Heavy Metal with an imperious Doom approach.

FUNERARY BELL "THE LAST TEMPTATION - LIGHT OF VIOLET PENANCE"
Slipcase CD
Finland is definitely a country a part of the scandinavian countries. No finnish band sounds like an other finnish one. And FUNERARY BELL makes no exception there. Deeply rooted in Black Metal spirit, the band gathers influences of bands from the 90’s, especially Mortuary Drape - and other Mediterranean black metal bands from that era (from Varathron to Blessed in Sin !) - that is more than an influence, and bands with sometimes some Heavy Metal accents, just like it can be heard in Grand Belial’s Key. FUNERARY BELL keeps an occult and esoteric aspect, faithful to tradition.
The Last Temptation – Light of violet Penance is a live ritual whose atmosphere is perfectly rendered, with the live energy and audible sounding, far from being boiled. A special concert for the band, which belongs now to their discography, as a complete full length. If that live show gathers songs from the band’s history, it’s because it was first intended to be the last concert of the band, a last testimony before the programmed death of the vocalist Invoker of the Shadows. An antemortem epitaph he decided and for which he has painted the cover with his own blood, drawing like there were stabbings on the canvas.
The Last Temptation – Light of violet Penance is now released on Forgotten Wisdom Prod in its most accomplished form, in a slipcase CD, unveiling its artwork only to the eyes of the hierophants.

AFFLICTION GATE "LAST NIGHT WANDERING"
MCD
After ten years of old school Death Metal activity, AFFLICTION GATE has put an end to the story. Yet, even if the band was already stopped, they chose to record four final tracks to bring a real conclusion to AFFLICTION GATE. Four great tracks of Death Metal, old school and massive. Think of Bolt Thrower here ! Hail AFFLICTION GATE !!
And, as Forgotten Wisdom Prod released their first MCD "Severance (Dead to this World)" back in december 2008, it was quite a logical point that we release their last release, ten years after their debut.

SHRIKE – “ ZEITGEIST – GEISTZEIT”
Genre: Black Metal
VÖ: 02.11.2018
Shrike“ ist ein Charakter aus Dan Simmons' 'Hyperion'“, eine unberechenbare Kreatur, die zeitunabhängig ihre Umwelt beeinflusst …
… und genau das sind SHRIKE. 2006 gegründet, tauchen die Berliner Black Metaller immer mal wieder auf und ab. Schon im Juni desselben Jahres, nur wenige Wochen nach der Bandgründung, erschien das Debütalbum „Meine Wucherung“ nach lediglich sieben Proben und bekam erstaunlich viel Lob. Denn SHRIKE sind unvorhersehbar und folgen nur ihrem eigenen Weg – und das fernab jeglicher Trends. Nach wenigen Liveshows taucht die Band wieder in die Schatten ihrer Bastion ein und lässt einige Jahre verstreichen. Zunächst als Trio formiert, schließt sich dann 2011 ein weiteres Bandmitglied an.
2013 tauchen die Berliner urplötzlich wieder auf. „Hinab in die vertraute Fremdheit“ erfreut sich weitgehend positiven Feedbacks seitens der Presse und bringt das Quartett einigen Hörern näher. Es soll die bis dato produktivste Phase im Schaffen SHRIKEs sein. Denn neben Konzerten werkelt die Band an ihrem dritten Album, welches 2014 unter dem Namen „Sieben“ erscheint und die positive Entwicklung der Band weiter stützt. Doch trotzdem bleibt die Kreatur eben unberechenbar, und so taucht sie erneut unter, und das zum Teil in völlige Stille. Abgesehen von vereinzelten Live-Auftritten, die im Jahr 2018 stattfinden,  ist die Existenz nicht mehr belegbar. Doch urplötzlich ist „Zeitgeist-Geistzeit“ da – ein neues Album, das SHRIKE am 02.11.2018 offiziell auf ihre Umwelt loslassen. Das Album ist erneut geprägt vom bandeigenen Verständnis von Black Metal, dem Ablehnen jeglichen Herdentriebs und Trends und der Auslebung der Emotionen, persönlichen Grenzen und Wahrnehmungen der vier Individuen hinter der Band.
P.S. seitens der Band: Black Metal is not war or propaganda. We distance ourselves from any extremist ideology and any attitude that despises mankind (such as racism, violence and so on).https://www.facebook.com/shrikeberlin/
DUNKELTRAUM – “ALPHA”
Genre: NDH / Dark Metal
Label: Boersma Records
VÖ: 30.11.2018
Es ist kalt und dunkel im Dezember 2016, als in Krumbach, Bayern, DUNKELTRAUM gegründet werden. Manuel und Maximilian möchten ihre Leidenschaft für NDH und Dark Metal in die Tat umsetzen und machen sich direkt ans Werk. Gespickt mit kraftvollen Riffs, treibenden Basslines und zynischen bis bitterbösen Texten arbeiten DUNKELTRAUM zunächst einige Monate im Verborgenen. Erste Instrumentals entstehen, und im April 2017 ist die Zeit gekommen: Während sich die ersten Blüten ihren Weg ans Licht bahnen, hat das Duo die winterliche Dunkelheit mitgenommen und präsentiert den Song „Feuer“ der Öffentlichkeit. Nur wenige Wochen später folgt die erste (Demo-)EP „Kleinkunst“. „Do It Yourself“ ist zu diesem Zeitpunkt das klare Motto und so produziert und veröffentlicht die Band auch in Eigenenergie einen Videoclip zu „Das Meer“. Dieser erscheint im Sommer 2017 und markiert den Beginn eines neuen Kapitels in der Bandgeschichte.
Als die Ruhe des Spätsommers und Herbstes abgeklungen ist, hat sich der Name DUNKELTRAUM im Underground bereits rumgesprochen. Die Band nimmt am „Battle of the Bands“ des Szenemagazins Sonic Seducer Teil und belegt unter den "31 besten Newcomern 2017"einen erfolgreichen sechsten Platz (Bekanntgabe: Februar 2018). Mit dieser Motivation im Rückenwind geht es an neues Songmaterial, welches schlussendlich im ersten vollwertigen Album enden soll. Doch zuvor unterschreiben DUNKELTRAUM im Oktober 2018 ihren ersten Plattenvertrag bei Boersma-Records, welches die Veröffentlichung einer der neuen NDH-/Dark-Metal-Hoffnungen aus Deutschland in ihre Verantwortung nimmt. Das Debütwerk wird den Namen „Alpha“ tragen und am 30.11.2018 kurz vor dem Winterbeginn erscheinen.

AYYUR announces the release of the long awaited new MLP "THE LUNATIC CREATURE" in collaboration with Sentient Ruin Laboratories in the US and Vendetta Records in the EU.
Birthed at the very edge of the Mediterranean where the Western world and Europe die and dissolve leaving pace to an ancient and inscrutable frontier land of lost history and arcane mystery, Tunisian black metal enigma AYYUR re-surface after a lengthily slumber with The Lunatic Creature, a new MLP of soul-tearing atmospheric black metal shrouded in malevolent mysticism and superbly impenetrable atmospheres.
On this new offering the North African band is aided on drums by former Deathspell Omega member Shaxul as they channel the remote and most unspeakable lore and darkest history of their land to summon a black metal specter of distant and magnificently wretched esotericism. With soaring mid-tempo progressions reminiscent of MGLA or Drudkh, dense and haunting atmospheres akin to those found in the most mystical fringe of atmospheric USBM, and moods of unparalleled hermetism and isolationism, Ayyur have distilled the very essence of their fringe and cast away existence cut away from the familiarity of the Western world to create a black metal construct of ghastly remoteness and of entrancing mysticism.
AYYUR – The Lunatic Creature
Lugubrious Fields
The Outcast
The Lunatic Creature
He Who Dwells in the Trenches
Youtube Streamer link  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVBQoVnUEZw&t=1039s
Ayyur started as a one man concept in 2007 by the will of Angra Mainyu in Tunsia, and several session members have taken part in the project over the years, but the band’s true nature remains elusive, its exotic and remote existence shrouded in mystery, and its essence to this day an ominous enigma which has faded in and out of human memory. Although exact information about the project cannot be found, Mainyu appears to be the only certain constant member throughout the project’s history, and 2018 has been chosen by Mainyu as the year of AYYUR’s return. To this end, he has summoned the aid of mysterious entity Dagon, and obtained the alliance of former Deathspell Omega member Shaxul to incarnate his vision as a recording three piece and complete AYYUR’s return, embodied as an unholy blood oath to serve and nurture black metal in its most uncompromising and feral form.
The result of AYYUR’s long in the works awakening is a dark, solemn, and twisted work which glorifies black metal’s most tumultuous and ravenous traits, while allowing its exotic and remote nature to leave its mark on the music and make it one with its birthplace, blessing a blood-soaked alliance made in equal parts of traditional and cold black metal nihilism, obscure spiritualism, and remote and isolationist hermitism.
INTERNAL CHRONICLES – “ CRIMSON STORM”
“Crimson Storm” is the impending new full-length from Croatia-based melodic doom/black one-man project INTERNAL CHRONICLES. Set for release early next year via Guts´n´Blood Records,
(“NoOne” is the name of the person behind musical arrangements and vocals) NoOne´s words about the album: „Crimson Storm is a concept album that I had in mind for years. Finally, this year I've managed to record it and recruit a few session members who managed to raise the whole album on another level. Crimson Storm is a metaphor for love, with all its beautiful, painful, incredible, awful, magical and violent dimensions that true love brings. It is also a statement against people who have given up or have decided that true love doesn't exist. It is an ode to love... For her.““
Internal Chronicles is a one-man project from Zagreb, Croatia. It consists of NoOne who play all the instruments, records and mixes everything by himself in a home studio with the help of a few session members. The first album is called Out of Sanity's Reach. It is a blend of doom and melodic black metal.
NoOne wanted to start the project as a full band but couldn't find musicians for the type of music he wanted to create so he decided to do everything himself. Their first album “Out of Sanity's Reach” was recorded and released independently in January 2018.

WOLF COUNSEL - "DESTINATION VOID"
Release date: 22-02-2019
Genre: Doom Metal
Label:  Endless Winter
Originally a brainchild of the 1990s WOLF COUNSEL finally came into existence in 2014 when two veteran musicians merged their enthusiasm for monumental lowtuned music and a great appreciation of heavy riffs into a new band.
WOLF COUNSEL released three full-length albums so far „Vol. I - Wolf Counsel“ in 2015 (Counsel Records/Dead Center Prod.), the second album „Ironclad“ in 2016 (Czar Of Bullets/Plastic Head) and their third effort “Age Of Madness/Reign Of Chaos” in 2017 (Czar Of Bullets/Plastic Head). All albums were recorded at Little Creek Studio (amongst others: Destruction, Nervosa, Pänzer, ProPain, Burning Witches) and produced, mixed and
mastered by V.O. Pulver (Poltergeist, GurD, Pänzer). All albums feature 7 songs that cover the whole diverse scope of classic Doom Metal and show the evolving style of this band.
The endless creative stream never stopped and in 2018 the band wrote their fourth full-length within 4 months. “DESTINATION VOID” consists again of 7 new tracks that follow the path of Classic Epic Doom Metal with various haunting harmonies, sonic interludes and diversified arrangements throughout approx. 48 minutes. Recordings followed in September 2018 again at Little Creek Studio with producer V.O. Pulver for a release (CD, LP, Digital) February 22, 2019 by Doom Metal specialized label Endless Winter.
“Destination Void” is a definite pinnacle in Wolf Counsel’s creative progression so far.
This band’s music has been called „authentic and elegantly classic“ by various print and online magazines amplified by descriptions like „the craft that has gone into these songs is as immense as the riffs“ and „it‘s whole vibe is doomed than thou“. Summarised some critics wrote that „the past albums show the sound of Wolf Counsel reaching their potential very early in their career and it is clear from these albums and its songs that they can only go even further from here“.
WOLF COUNSEL so far played liveshows with bands like Orange Goblin (UK), Procession(SE), Epitaph (IT), Elder (US), The Order Of Israfel (SE), Castle SF (US), Year Of The Goat
(SE), Magnacult (NL) and DevilDriver (US) in several European countries.

MISANTHROPIC MIGHT - "FEINDT"
Release date: 06-11-2018
Genre: Black/Death Metal
Label: HFC Records
Unswerving commitment to misanthropy and extreme music brought together Purgatory, Vale and Slavetrader in 2000 - Misanthropic Might was born.
Their years of musical experience in various bands (Seeds of Sorrow, S nx) and their individual creativity created their rst demo “Fegefeuer”(2001), which sold out fast. Following a line up change, the band recorded their first full length album “Misanthropic War” with their new guitarist Sic (Parental Advisory) in 2003. Later on Machine (also PA) joined their forces as second guitar player. Since then Misanthropic Might became a constant presence in the Austrian metal scene and made a name for themselves even beyond the border.
Misanthropic Might are known to deliver vicious black metal via relentless blasting, melodic riffs and demonic vocals - on record as well as on stage. It’s raw. It’s brutal. It’s everything fans of this genre could ask for. In 2013 “Menschenhasser” was released on Black Skull Records, which was followed by relentless touring in Austria and Europe. They played various headline and support shows (Dark Funeral, Setherial, Nargaroth, Impaled Nazarene among others) over the years. In 2016, they also conquered Ukrainian territory (Kiev Sonic Massacre, Black Sea Festival) on their mini tour with Severance (US) and Parental Advisory (AUT) through the Alps and Eastern Europe (Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic). Fast forward to 2018, Misanthropic Might have gathered again to record their eagerly-awaited third studio album “Feindt” (HFC Records) and it’s dripping with dark atmosphere, lthy vocals and pounding riffs.

Slavetrader- Drums

ARCHEAN - "ARCHEAN"
Release date: 07-12-2018
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Ogmios Underground
It was in 2017 - at the instigation of Dwimorberg (vocals) who was joined by Anadrark (guitar), Obscurisis (drums), Djillian (guitar) and Henbane (bass) - that ARCHEAN was born. The band plays a raw, dirty, punk and uncompromising style of black metal that deals with the conflictual and power relationships of Humans.

OTHISMOS: "SEPARAZIONE", new album by Italian noise/crust outfit, out now!
"OTHISMOS seem to give few fucks of how the world perceives metal and hardcore and instead went down their own lightless and lonely path of destruction and into their personal hell. It may be a cryptic, even puzzling listen, but the character, brutality, and vehemence are inimitable". - Cvlt Nation
"Similar to the way Haapoja, euth, or even The Secret fuse wild aggro black metal-adjacent atonality with crust punk sensibilities and unpredictable song structuring, OTHISMOS carry a range of explosive constituents and just one short-ass fuse". - Toilet Ov Hell
"The musical equivalent of an anxiety attack: dark, claustrophobic, and cumbersome – resting heavy in the middle of your chest. It’s also hateful in the way that only someone who’s lost all hope can hate". - Indy Metal Vault
"A bass driven, post-hardcore, noise punk and post-sludge worm of heaviness that diverges to atmospheric black metal extremes. Though that might sound like a neo-crust band gone wrong on paper, I can assure you that the dissonant aspects of their riffs and sound gel those elements together beautifully". - Grizzly Butts
"Separazione" is the second OTHISMOS album. The band started in 2009, initially as a punk-hardcore band, and then evolved into a hardcore / crust / extreme metal hybrid with the debut album "L'Odio Necessario" (2015). The band avoids any easy categorization and has previously been compared to Cripple Bastards, Nasum, Negazione, High On Fire and Celeste.
The album, mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege Studios in Portland (Full Of Hell, From Ashes Rise), presents a yet another evolution compared to previous releases, further underlining the four-piece crust and black metal influences.
The album was self-released by the band on December 7th, 2018.
Says OTHISMOS:
"'Separazione' is exactly the record we wanted to make at this point in our journey: straight forward, fast and aggressive. We worked hard in the rehearsal room and in the studio and we achieved our goal, that is to create a dark, oppressive album; something able to surprise the listener right away. We don't like talking about genres, we kinda live in seclusion when it comes to composing and we have never been interested in being easily catalogable. Our music should always convey feelings such as anger, hate, despair and emptiness, and that is enough for us. We see 'Separazione' as our own soundtrack to the downfall of human civilization".
Tracklist:
01. Canto dell’Estinzione
02. Black Star
03. Hymn of Victory
04. Madre

METAL POLITICS TAIWAN ist eine Produktion von HELDENFILM, in Koproduktion mit dem ZDF, in Zusammenarbeit mit ARTE, gefördert durch die MFG Filmförderung Baden-Württemberg. Das Projekt wurde von der Robert Bosch Stiftung im Rahmen des Programms „Grenzgänger“ unterstützt. Die Herstellung des Drehbuches wurde von der FFA gefördert.

Einen Trailer zu Metal Politics Taiwan findet Ihr hier: https://vimeo.com/209514055
Über die Doku:
Die Fans von Taiwans Heavy Metal Rockstar Freddy Lim (Chthonic) rufen: „Freddy for President!“. Freddy kontert: Ihr denkt wohl, seit Trump kann jetzt jeder Präsident werden? Ja, vielleicht – in Taiwan. Immerhin hat Freddy Lim eine neue Partei gegründet und ist nur ein Jahr später Abgeordneter im Parlament Taiwans. Jetzt ist der tätowierte, langhaarige Rebell zuständig für Nationale Sicherheit und Auslandsbeziehungen. Der Film erzählt das erste Jahr des Rockers als Politiker und Visionär einer modernen Demokratie für Taiwan. Er reist mit ihm um die Welt. Freddy holt sich Inspiration bei seinem spirituellem Idol, dem Dalai Lama, in Indien, und besucht unter Chinas heftigem Protest die Vereidigung des neuen US Präsident Donald Trump in Washington. Was passiert, wenn der metallene Held der Unterdrückten seine Bühnenrüstung ablegt und in den Maßanzug des Politikers schlüpft? Wenn er in die Limousine mit Chauffeur und in die öden Niederungen der Tagespolitik hinabsteigt? Wird er scheitern, oder wird seine Künstlerseele die große Aufgabe meistern, die die Geschichte ihm übertragen hat? Von China permanent militärisch als abtrünnige Provinz bedroht, ist Taiwan von den meisten Ländern der Welt nicht als eigener Staat anerkannt. Es ist eine Insel im Nirgendwo. Aber während die meisten Jugendbewegungen unserer Zeit scheitern, hat es die Sunflower-Bewegung in Taiwan mit Freddy Lim bis in die Regierung geschafft. Zum ersten Mal in der Geschichte des Landes regiert jetzt die Opposition mit einer weiblichen Präsidentin, die ihren Wahlkampf Seite an Seite mit der Stimme der Jugend, Freddy Lim, ausgefochten hat. METAL POLITICS TAIWAN ist ein temporeicher Film über einen rebellischen Künstler, der sich zum Realpolitiker wandeln muss und sich nichts weniger vorgenommen hat, als das politische System in Taiwan grundlegend zu modernisieren.

YERÛŠELEM sind die neue Schöpfung von BLUT AUS NORD-Kreativkopf Vindsval.
Zusammen mit seinem langjährigen Partner W.D.Fled hat er ein höchstgradig ambitioniertes Projekt kreiert, das auf "The Sublime" in etwa an das surrealistische "Cosmosophy"-Album aus der coolen "777"-Trilogie von BLUT AUS NORD anknüpft. Industrial Metal, kalte New-Wave-Klänge, Electronica und Post-Punk geben sich die kreative Klinke in die Hand: eine unheilvolle, grenzenlose musikalische Reise für Fans von geschmackvollen Großartigkeiten wie Coil, Pitchshifter, Killing Joke und Godflesh bin hin zu den experimentellen Phasen von Mayhem und Thorns.

MULE SKINNER - "AIRSTRIKE", one the best death-grind albums of the year! Formed in 1990, MULE SKINNER stands as one of the first death/grind outfits spawned by the infernal circles of New Orleans that also gave birth to bands like Eyehategod, Crowbar, Soilent Green, Exhorder and so on. Since their first demo, they proved to take no prisoners with their tight, neck-breaking grindcore aggression.
"Airstrike" marks their merciless comeback 23 years after their devastating debut album "Abuse" and it sounds like no time has passed since then, as they are even faster and more crushing. Ballistic blast beats, caustic vocals and highly addictive riffs make the 13 songs on this new full length a complete aural warfare in the race to be one of the best grind albums of the year, recommended to fans of Assuck, Terrorizer, Flesh Parade, early Brutal Truth etc.
"Airstrike" tracklist:
01. Suicide Vest 
02. Airstrike 
03. Bone & Debris 
04. Chocking Agent 
05. Bred to Destroy 
06. Sovereignty 
07. Firing Squads 
08. Battle Worshiper 
09. Among Sheep 
10. Faith in Blood 
11. Backbone 
12. Tactical Control 
13. Fuse
"Airstrike" is avaiable on LP and CD via Italy's F.O.A.D. Records.

"Through Wilderness" is now officially available in Europe on CD and limited LP (400 black and 100 clear vinyls housed in a luxurious gatefold jacket) via Dawnbreed Records. Tankcrimes and Carbonized Records handled the release in North America last summer.
The album was captured at Earhammer Studios with Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil, Vastum, Necrot, etc.) and boasts eight punishing tracks that pay their respects to the likes of My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, Rottrevore and Disembowelment. It also includes guest appearances by Chris Reifert and Danny Coralles of Autopsy, Derrel Houdashelt, formerly of Exhumed, and Teresa Wallace of Dreaming Dead and comes swathed in the cover art of Marald Van Haasteren (Bolt Thrower, Baroness, Necrot).

MORTUOUS was forged in San Jose, California in 2009 from the ashes of Colin Tarvin’s previous project Funerealm. Tarvin began writing music in the vein of Incantation, Autopsy, and Viogression with lyrics centered heavily on philosophical views on death and anti-technological themes. Later that year he released the "Mors Immortalis" demo on Skeleton Plague Records which received praise and recognition throughout the underground death metal community. By 2010, MORTUOUS had a full lineup which included former Exhumed members Col Jones and Mike Beams as well as Al Tarvin-Kibler, and Nick Scarboro. In 2013, the band parted ways with Tarvin-Kibler and Scarboro and recruited bassist Clint Roach. Drummer Chad Gailey of Necrot joined the fold that following year completing the band's current incarnation.

HIEROPHANT: new EP "SPAWNED ABORTIONS" now available!After having obliterated Germany's Party.San Open Air and several other European festivals, HIEROPHANT is back with "Spawned Abortions", a new EP released via Unholy Anarchy Records. With their first effort since the acclaimed "Mass Grave" (Season Of Mist, 2016), the Italian band exhume the brutally-primal sledge hammer of old school death metal and ravage it with the violent, frantic edge of grind and black metal to sonically smack the heck out of everything in their path.
The songs comprising the EP - the title track and a powerful cover version of BOLT THROWER's immortal classic "Realm Of Chaos" - reveal HIEROPHANT's strong connection to their death metal influences clearer than ever, all while opening the gates to a profound and disturbing musical voyage.
"This new song summarizes this band and its total evolution since 'Mass Grave' came out", Lorenzo Gulminelli (vocals/guitar) says when interviewed by
CVLT NATION. "There is no room for happiness but only for chaos, for the grim, for an unconditional and absolute disgust towards the enormous surge of crud we are overwhelmed with every day".
"It is great to hear that the music that we created nearly 30 years ago is still kept alive and inspires other musicians from a younger generation", Karl Willetts (BOLT THROWER/MEMORIAM) says about HIEROPHANT's cover. "We are proud of what we achieved with Bolt Thrower throughout our career, and 'Realm of Chaos' was a defining moment for the band so many years ago — keep the death metal flag flying high!".
"They are one of the best death metal bands of all time", Lorenzo explains, "and this is the reason why we chose them. Hail to death!".
Darkness comes crushing down like an avalanche of despair, misery, and pain. While an undercurrent of harsh brutality is tangible within each note, there is also a black void clawing at sanity and trying to drag all emotion into the lurking abyss.
HIEROPHANT were conceived in the classic Adriatic city of Ravenna in the Emilia-Romagna in 2010.
The band quickly left a mark as one of the leading exponents of extreme Italian music. A first self-titled full-length was released in the same year as their founding and the band started to constantly play all over Europe. HIEROPHANT were also picked up on the other side of the pond. Following the EP "Son of the Carcinoma" (2013), their sophomore album "Great Mother: Holy Monster" (2013) was also released in North America.
Several tours and festival performances later, the Italians showed no sign of relenting. Their third full-length "Peste" (2014) rather increased the band's massive sonic impact, amalgamating sludge, black and death metal as well as a manifest punk attitude.
With "Mass Grave", released via Season Of Mist in 2016, the band managed to take their extreme brand of hard music a step further.
Tracklist:
1. Spawned Abortions
2. Realm Of Chaos (BOLT THROWER cover)

VETRARNOTT - "SCION"
Release date: 02-09-2018
Genre: Progressive Black Metal
Label: Self-released
Vetrarnott is an Italian Progressive Black Metal band that has its purpose in representing and glorifying ancient customs, rites, and cultures.
The band, founded during winter 2015 by Gar Ulfr, started as a one-man band but by the end of 2017 turned into a regular band with the recruitment of guitarists Valar and Osculum. On September 2nd 2018 the trio released “Scion”, their first EP, and eventually started performing live with Ambrogio Locardo on the drum kit.
Gar Ulfr comments: "While conceiving "Scion", I wanted to create an EP that would serve both as a tribute to the bands, songs, and sounds that forged me musically and as a farewell to the themes from the Northern myths and sagas I wrote about on some of my previous works. Despite my love and fascination for Norse mythology and Scandinavian history, I felt that I had to "graduate" from this passion of mine and start focusing on the legends and myths of my land. Thus came "Scion": 3 songs, each about one of the descendants (or scion) of Loki and Angrboða, played by 3 musicians that are the "artistic heir" of Scandinavian metal bands. "Helvegr", the 3rd track, is my musical farewell to the Northern landscapes and is followed by the bonus track "La Voce degli Dei" that is a "trailer" of what will come next for us: songs in Italian about Italic legends and myths."
Line-up:
Gar Ulfr: Bass, Vocals, Keyboards, Drum programming
Valar: Guitars (Lead & Rhythm)
Osculum: Guitars (Rhythm & Acoustic)
Ambrogio Locardo: Live Drummer

Hi – Chris and Paul from Imperative PR here. We are currently working with Paragon Records to promote three of their very finest releases and we wanted to take this opportunity to remind you of them before the Xmas break.
First of all we have the powerful black metal of
FORNACE'S  - “DEEP MELANCHOLIC WRATH...”
Fornace play cold, raw black metal, filled with powerful emotion and sinister atmosphere, but without the fripperies and trappings that plague so much of the genre. With Fornace you get no painted faces and replica weapons, no polished spikes and burning crosses, just incredibly powerful black metal with the ability to chill your heart and steal your soul through impassioned riffs and desperate vocal exhortations alone. With Deep Melancholic Wrath Fornace have created an album of black metal deeper than midnight and colder than frost in the chambers of your heart, songs that summon up the grief that hides in your nightmares, against which your sanity is helpless. Image is nothing, music is everything and the pain in each tortured note is real.
"Just like a good horror movie, the feeling that you are not alone, this album has the same effect." - ZWARE METALEN

Next we invite you to sample the classic metal delights of GHOST TOWER...
Formed in Bellevue, Nebraska in 2007 Ghost Tower were inspired by the likes of Black Sabbath, Mercyful Fate and Fates Warning – but not inspired to imitate. Combining the creative guitar work of Matt Preston, the thunderous, inventive drumming of Mike Biggs and the haunting, hypnotic vocals of Ameven, Ghost Tower began to craft original, exciting music, full of atmosphere and character. In 2012 they independently released their magnum opus, HEAD OF NIGHT. Head Of Night is an album that stands alone in a dream kingdom all of its own, a world of spirits and mystery, shrouded in shadows. Each song is painted in eldritch hues as the three special talents of Ghost Tower entwine, bringing to life their arcane metal creations. In 2018 Paragon Records heard the songs of Ghost Tower, still singing from beyond the grave. With the band’s blessing they added two superb tracks from Curse Of The Black Blood and one from the Ghost Tower demo, to create the ultimate edition of the Head Of Night album. Thanks to Paragon Records Head Of Night now lives again.
"... fist pumping head banging riffs thundering rhythms and powerful vocals ..." - THE RIPPLE EFFECT

And finally, it's time to take a trip to Ulcer Island, with BUCKSHOT FACELIFT.
Buckshot Facelift’s brutal concept album, Ulcer Island was originally released in early 2017, with some beautifully bleak artwork courtesy of Travis Smith (Nevermore, Opeth, Overkill etc). It left the minds of those that heard it in tatters, but Paragon Records have decided that the body count was too low and they’re offering a return trip to the island this winter. This is a raging grindcore soundtrack that swallows up and vomits out elements of death metal, power-violence and hardcore and then plants moments of unexpected beauty in the steaming black filth, like improbable, delicate flowers in a scorched earth landscape. Featuring a guest vocal performance from King Fowley of the legendary Deceased, this album has been a secret for far too long. This is grindcore at its most conceptually brutal and musically creative, a tour de force of shocking savagery. So climb aboard, the boat for Ulcer Island is leaving soon and there’s room for just one more...
"... busy, mulched up mix of metal, grind, hardcore and powerviolence..." - COLLECTIVE ZINE

DOOMSTER REICH  - "HOW HIGH FLY TBE VULTURES"

Prepare yourself for a soundtrack to unsettling visions and sado-masochistic delights on the verge of consciousness. Once again, all tracks were rdcorded live in Radio Lodz Concert Studio.

CONTRA MUNDUM, the new album from Sweden's progressive death mongers MOURNING SIGN, is out now on Orchestrated Misery Recordings and streaming in its entirety.

Purchase Contra Mundum:   orchestratedmiseryrecordings.bigcartel.com/product/mourning-sign-contra-mundum
discogs.com/Mourning-Sign-Contra-Mundum-/release/12923759
Having formed in 1992 near Hallstahammer, Sweden, the band quickly hit the studio with their debut recording Last Chamber, which helped secure a recording contract with the Italian label Godhead.  The following year the band released the mini-CD Alienor (1993) followed by the self-titled Mourning Sign (1995). Both received favorable reviews from the media, but the band's second full length, Multiverse (1996), left many scribes and followers stunned! Multiverse set the standard for progressive death metal, but alas the following year the band simply went on hiatus. Members eventually started new projects (Sweden's Amaran one of several) and continued to churn out progressive-sounding material over the years.
 Having reformed in 2016 MOURNING SIGN sought to continue their attitude and achievements, thus creating their third album, Contra Mundum (meaning in Latin to defy or oppose everyone else). Recorded in the year 2018, this release is limited to only 500 copies, and features some incredible guitar work from Kari Kainulainen and Petri Aho. 
 "We can be grateful to have Mourning Sign back. A crushingly heavy album layered with uplifting and inspirational elements of progressive metal.
- Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life 
"Contra Mundum is replete with roaring vocals, craggy imperious riffs and melodies that chug through the morbid atmospheres."
- Skulls N Bones
"Well worth the wait. This is quality underground music."
- From Beyond Metal Fanzine
"Enjoyable melodic and progressive death metal."
- Lords of Metal
"Brutal and neoclassical influences of bands like Fleshgod Apocalypse, and melodic black metal, recalling Watain in flashes."
- Heavy Metal Maniac

BEKMORK - "INCANTATIONS OF THE FRIGID NORTH"
Release date: 25-01-2018
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Horns High Records
In the spirit of Norwegian black metal rises a mysterious new band, delivering odes to the darkness and cold of the frozen north. Emerging from obscurity to produce a ve track debut album is Bekmork (Norwegian for pitch black). Their lyrical in uence is often strongly rooted in Scandanavian lore, with references to Viking legends and pagan gods, but can more broadly be interpreted as a nihilistic celebration of all which is darkness. Agressive, relentless, morbid, and haunting with unforgiving riffs and guttural howls, smothering all light. Bekmork is a two man band featuring Dread Count Naberius on vocals and guitars and Malevolent Berserker on drums and guitars. "Incantations of the Frigid North" is available wherever music is sold.
Line-up:
Dread Count Naberius : Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards

Italian black metallers THE SCARS IN PNEUMA will release their debut album "THE PATH OF SEVEN SORROWS" on February 8th 2019 via Promethean Fire / Kolony Records.
Today the band partnered with No Clean Singing to premiere a single from the release called "Souls Are Burning". A masterclass in dynamic and epic black metal.
You can listen to the song
HERE!
THE SCARS IN PNEUMA (“The Scars in the Soul” – from “πνεύμα”, ancient Greek word for “breath”, “breath of life” and, in a religious context, for “spirit”, “soul”) recorded "The Path Of Seven Sorrows" at Elfo Studio in Tavernago (PC), Italy; mixing and mastering took place at Goblin Studio in Piacenza, Italy, with Daniele Mandelli at the helm.
The striking cover artwork is "The Fire at Night" painting by Francisco Goya (1794).
"The Path Of Seven Sorrows" tracklist:
01. Devotion
02. Souls Are Burning
03. Spark To Fire To Sun
04. All The Secrets That We Keep
05. Dark Horizons Ahead
06. The Glorious Empire Of Sand
07. Constellations
First single "Spark To Fire To Sun", is now streaming on YouTube. Check it out
HERE!
THE SCARS IN PNEUMA initially started as a solo project of Lorenzo Marchello (vocals / guitars / bass) in the beginning of 2017, and it turned to a band when trusted musicians Francesco Lupi (guitars) and Daniele Valseriati (drums) joined the ranks later during the same year.
Musically, THE SCARS IN PNEUMA provides it's own particular black metal style, which can be defined as a mix of black metal, death metal with melodic riffing and epic passages, with a touch of doomy mood. Some bands that can be cited as inspiration are Dissection, Mgła, Be'lakor, Rotting Christ, Forgotten Tomb, Blut Aus Nord, Emperor.
Lyrically, THE SCARS IN PNEUMA is all about themes such as dealing with your own demons, life's biggest regrets, the passing of time, the beloved people we lost.

Lorenzo Marchello - Vocals, Guitars, Bass
Francesco Lupi - Guitars

American black metallers ENON CHAPEL are ready to unleash their first, self-titled, EP.ENON CHAPEL is the new side project of Meghan Wood (Crown of Asteria, Iarnvidjur) and Balan (Palace of Worms, Botanist, Ordo Obsidium).
The project was inspired by their mutual interest in the darker aspects of Victorian Era London and in particular the tale of Jack The Ripper and the burial crisis of the first part of the century which saw London cemeteries literally bursting with rotting corpses - the result of a massive population surge.
Taking influence from the raw and ravaged sound of lo-fi black metal basement dwellers such as Ildjarn, Bone Awl, Cult of Daath, Les Legions Noire, and The Black Twilight Circle, then injecting the sound further with punk and thrash elements, ENON CHAPEL has crafted a raw, visceral burst of darkness straight out of the crumbling crypts of Highgate Cemetery.
"Enon Chapel" will be released on February 1st, 2019, on cassette tape and Bandcamp via Acephale Winter Productions.
Tracklist:
01. Eldrich
02. Miasma From The Charnel House
03. Anatomy Murder
04. Seance
05. The Lodger
06. The Unscrupulous Reverend Howse

Long running Minnesota Death/Doom band COLD COLOURS celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2019 with the February 22 release of fifth full-length album NORTHERNMOST. In recognition of the winter solstice, the album's first blast of freezing wind comes in the form of a lyric video for new track "Terminal Winter."
"Terminal Winter" (Lyric Video)  youtu.be/zQ3vPPpP1UM
Vocalist/guitarist Brian J. Huebner had this to say about the band's milestone:
"If 20 years has taught me anything, it's that you have to believe in what you are doing. No matter how many roadblocks you hit over two decades. I am thrilled that we have 'Northernmost' to celebrate 20 years. Our best album so far? Without question, but more importantly, the best representation of who we are and should be. This album is a testament to the chemistry of the band in 2019."
Long overdue, Northernmost finds COLD COLOURS in top form as they mine the depths of despair on 12 dynamic compositions guaranteed to satisfy devotees, as well as newcomers with a taste for the likes of AMORPHIS, SWALLOW THE SUN, and INSOMNIUM. Recorded and mixed by drummer Mike Andrie, and mastered to perfection by the legendary Dan Swanö at Sweden's Unisound, Northernmost is nothing short of exquisite. Welcome to 2019; welcome to your Doom!

NEKHRAH – “Nekhrotise” from album “COSMIC APOSTASY”.Nekhrah have recorded and released their first full-length album entitled COSMIC APOSTASY which was mastered by Alan Douches of West West Side Music and subsequently self-released.
The philosophy behind the band is Nihilistic. That is to say, the belief that existence is meaningless and that there is no inherent meaning in anything we do, think or experience. The lyrics revolve heavily around misanthropy, cataclysm, self-destruction and a desire of non-existence.

Aktuelle Reviews
AMOKSCHLAF – „AMOKSCHLAF“ ( TAPE)
Werte Mitstreiter,  bei dem Namen Tom Tee klingelt´s bestimmt bei einigen von Euch im Hinterkopf.
Der belgische Gitarrist hat seine Sporen unter anderem bei OSTROGOTH, THORIUM, NEO PROPHET und 23 ACEZ verdient.
Darüber hinaus hat er ständig an Solomaterial gearbeitet und dabei wie schon bei seinen anderen Bands diverse Metal-Spielarten ausgetestet.
Das neueste Ergebnis dieser Arbeit nennt sich IN MOTION und verblüfft schon beim ersten Durchlauf durch eine Qualität, die so rein gar nix mit vielen anderen Soloexkursen, Projekten und halbgaren Nebenspielwiesen zu tun hat.
Tom beweist sich als erstklassiger Songwriter, hervorragender Gitarrist, grandioser Produzent und zudem als smarter Organisator.
Denn mit einem goldenen Händchen hat er eine Riege von Gästen um sich geschart, die "THRIVING FORCE" endgültig auf ein internationales Spitzenniveau heben.
David Davidson (Revocation)
Björn Strid (Soilwork)
Pierre "Shawter" Maille (Dagoba)
Jasper Daelman (ex-Anti-Icon)
Matthieu Romarin (Uneven Structure)
Jeffrey Rademakers (Spartan)
Mike Slembrouck (After All, Rik Priem´s Prime)
Benny "Zors" Willaert (23 Acez, Black Snow, Gemini Season)
Sindre Nedland (In Vain)
Dabei geht es Tom nicht um das Einsammeln großer Namen (auch wenn man hier so gut wie jeden Beteiligten kennt), sondern um Songdienlichkeit und Können.
Zeigte das ähnlich strukturierte ENTER POLARIS-Projekt eher die Prog/Power-Metal-Seite des Künstlers, geht´s jetzt in die (progressive) Death/Thrash-Richtung.
Das erstklassig produzierte "Thriving Force" ist ein gelungener Balance-Act aus technischem Anspruch und gelungenem Songwriting, komplex, hart, ausgefeilt und voller Herzblut.
Inspiriert von u.a. Gojira, Sylosis, Hacride, Scar Symmetry und Rush hat Tom hier ein echtes Kleinod fertiggestellt, das bereits beim ersten Hören überzeugt, aber bei jedem Durchlauf weitere faszinierende Facetten offenbart.

MENSCHENFRESSER – “ STERBEN”
Genre: Horror Metal
Label: Boersma Records
Vertrieb: Soulfood
VÖ: 30.11.2018
Menschenfresser erzeugen eine charakteristische, düstere Black-Metal-Atmosphäre, die dem Hörer Schauer über den Rücken laufen lässt, kombiniert mit groovigen Death-Metal-Parts, bei denen die Haare fliegen und abgerundet mit einem ordentlichen Schuss Thrash, der konstant zum Bier saufen animiert. Die facettenreiche Stimme ergänzt die furchteinflößenden Klänge zu einer einzigartigen Mischung. Dabei orientieren sich die deutschen Texte an Kult-Horror-Filmen der siebziger und achtziger Jahre, weshalb die Band ihren Stil als „Horror-Metal“ bezeichnet. Dabei laden die Textzeilen teilweise zum Schmunzeln ein, doch wenn man zwischen den Zeilen liest, erkennt man eine tiefgründige Gesellschaftskritik
Die Menschenfresser aus Trier fanden sich bereits im Jahre 2006 zusammen und mit Christian Knechtel an der Gitarre und Holger Rodammer an Gesang und Schlagzeug frönte die Band auf der „Esst mich“ Single sowie der „Moorgott“ Demo ihrer morbiden Gelüste. Die Gier nach Menschenfleisch war unersättlich und im Jahre 2011 veröffentlichten die Menschenfresser ihr Debüt-Album „Menschenfresser“. Durch die guten Kritiken wuchs der Appetit immer weiter und im Jahre 2014 erhoben sich die faulenden Kadaver der Menschenfresser aus ihrer Gruft um das nächste Full-length Album „Der Nachzehrer“ zu präsentieren. Im August 2015 fand sich mit Robert Trierweiler ein neuer Bassist und die Band war wieder bereit für Studio und Auftritte. Getrieben vom ewigen Hunger sattelten die Kannibalen im Oktober 2017 ihre Pferde und zogen mit ihrer „Kannibalistische Reiter“ EP durch das deutschsprachige In- und Ausland. Im Februar 2018 hat die Band beim Essener Plattenlabel „Boersma Records“ einen weltweiten Plattenvertag unterschrieben und im Dezember 2018 wird das nächste Studioalbum veröffentlicht
Die Band sollte jedem Horror-Film-Fan ein Begriff sein:
Die Bilder für die Cover der Alben „Menschenfresser“, „Der Nachzehrer“ und „Sterben“ wurden von Horror-Film-Legende Tom Sullivan gestaltet. Die Picture-LP und die beiden Alben stehen im „Evil Dead Museum“ in den USA und die Band durfte vier Songs zur Bonus-CD der „Evil Dead“-Dokumentation („Invaluable“, 2016) beisteuern. Auch in den Horror-Filmen „The Evil within us“ (Brandon Medina, 2015) und „The Expressionless” (Israel Laboy, 2015) werden Songs der Band verwendet.

SERRABULHO - "PORNTUGAL (PORTUGUESE VAGITARIAN GASTRONOMY)"
Release date: 1-12-2018
Genre: Party Death/Grind; Happy Grindcore; Goregrind
Label: Rotten Roll Rex
Portuguese farmers Serrabulho will release their third album "Porntugal (Portuguese Vagitarian Gastronomy)", in December, 15th via Rotten Roll Rex.
Porntugal features a wide variety of guest appearances. Besides the bagpipe, Ricardo Santos also plays rabel (similar to an archaic violin and descendend from the medieval rebec), tarota (a catalan wind instrument, that belongs to the Oboes family), adufe (a portuguese square drum), galician tambourine and vieiras (scallop shells). 
Manuel Meirinhos [Galandum Galundaina, Trasgo] contributes with additional vocals, sampling and bagpipe. Freaky, the crazy chihuahua barks (a lot) on the song Os Tintins do Tintin. Also, additional vocals throughout the CD were provided by Susana Lima and Hugo Picamilho [PadariaGang]. 
Some field recordings captured in loco by ethnomusicologist Tiago Pereira & A Música Portuguesa a Gostar Dela Própria [
http://amusicaportuguesaagostardelapropria.org/] were used on the disc. 
With Porntugal, Serrabulho focused on its Portuguese cultural/musical heritage and wrote an intense-yet-exotic album, with multiple layers that result in an ever-more-distinctive effort. 
The band also notes that a part of Serrabulho’s twisted aesthetic actually originates from the minds of two young ladies: “Susana Catalão, our most beloved lyricist, has penned the vast majority of the songs’ lyrics, delivering some of funniest stories, written in an exquisite way that lets us delve ever-deeper in our craziness. Meanwhile, Marta Peneda’s cover art has been the band’s calling card. Every time we talk to either Susana and Marta about some ideas we had, they return to us with even more deranged concepts than the ones we initially brainstormed.” 
Tracklist: 
01. She Drinks Milk 
02. Ela Fez-me um Grão de Bico 
03. Fecal Torpedo 
04. Pito Sem Penas 
05. Os Tintins do Tintin 
06. BBC Wild Life 
07. Cagalhão Com Ovo a Cavalo

SUFFERING SOULS - "IN SYNERGY OBSCENE"
Release date: 25-01-2019
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Schwarzdorn Production
Founded in 1994 under the name of Dismal, german symphonic black metal act Suffering Souls return with their fourth full-length "In Synergy Obscene", which comes out 10 years after the release of its predecessor "Sadistic Goat Complex". On "In synergy Obscene", the band presents a sombre and satanic identity which will appeal to all of those who respect and love the black metal scene from the 90s.
 The band's only member Tobias “Lord Esgaroth” Micko started to write new songs on January 2010, and three years after he was ready to hit the studio. Once part of it was already recorded, Lord Esgaroth decided to put it on hold as he wanted to rewrite the tracks. Another three years later, in March 2016, the musician goes back to the studio to see how the tracks had matured during this time, and what we found was a record that marks a giant step on the right direction of Suffering Souls.
Line-up:
Tobias “Lord Esgaroth” Micko:
Vocals, all Guitars, Strings & Choirs, Drums & Programming

Bay Area death-thrashers LACERATION has joined forces with Unspeakable Axe Records for the early 2019 release of REMNANTS.
Emerging out of the Northern Bay Area of California in 2006, LACERATION is an old-school style death/thrash band dedicated to crushing skulls and splitting ears. The band recently returned from a five-year hiatus with a new line up and has begun working on new material for their long-awaited debut full-length album.
 Remnants compiles LACERATION's earliest recordings; an EP, a demo and tracks from the band's 2013 split with TINNITUS. Included are 2009's Consuming Reality and the buzzed-about Realms of the Unconscious EP, which drew comparisons to the likes of DEMOLITION HAMMER.
Fans can expect 10 tracks of violent death/thrash with ragged glass-gargling vocals and death metal-inspired riffs. No gimmicks! This is true old-school metal that prioritizes sheer heaviness over all else.
Check out album track "Exhausted In Form" at youtu.be/TxQ0WKquTPk
Track Listing:
1. Realms Of The Unconscious
2. Self Deprivation
3. Shadows Of Existence

KING APATHY (former Thränenkind) reveal first track off new album 'Earthmother Rising' the first new track off KING APATHY'S forthcoming new album "WOUNDS" can now be found here and all streaming platforms. "Wounds" the first album after the band have changed its name from THRÄNENKIND to KING APATHY is set to be released on February 22nd and is now available for preorder here.
Civilization kills: This is the opening track of KING APATHYs third record and there is no way around this frightening and sobering conclusion. Mankind is ruthlessly exploiting the earth. The downfall of our society is just a matter of time, because the planets' resources are finite. Wether humanity as a species will survive the end of civilization as we know it is questionable. Will we destroy this world and make it uninhabitable for all life or can we find the strength to unlearn our destructive behaviours? Songs like The Scars Of The Land, Cleansing, Great Depression or Earthmother Rising are dealing with issues like this. One thing is sure: The "Wounds" we are inflicting are getting deeper and deeper and they definitely won't heal on their own.
KING APATHY came to be in 2007 near Munich in the South of Germany­ under the name of Thränenkind. After ten years of existence the band changed its name to KING APATHY to make a statement about modern life on this planet. Everyone knows that we are destroying the earth, but hardly anyone fights against this blatant injustice. Plain and simple: a KING called APATHY rules our everyday life. The musicians share interests in the ideas of environmentalism, anarchism and veganism and are criticizing capitalism in general. In their lyrics KING APATHY are exploring the relationship between humanity and nature, environmental ethics, interpersonal relations and (post)modern life in general. You can feel their humility and sincerity - both in their lyrics and their music.
Having released two albums under the name of Thränenkind - "The Elk" (2013) and "King Apathy" (2016) - "Wounds" is the first full-length album under the new bandname. The songs of KING APATHY are still the kind of music for which the band is known and appreciated. They still draw their inspirations from a lot of different genres such as melodic metal, post black metal, doom, neo-crust, post rock, shoegaze and hardcore punk. Nevertheless the new album "Wounds" is more complex than its predecessors and you will have to listen several times before all its secrets are revealed. The atmosphere is dark and oppressive. On the surface it's not a "violent" album, but the songs have an intense after-effect. They will leave you restless and will haunt you for quite some time.
New album "Wounds" out February 22nd, 2019

"THE BLACKENING TIDE" is the new album from Danish epic melodic death metallers HEIDRA and the follow up to the band͛'s first full length album "Awaiting Dawn͛" from 2014.
"The Blackening Tide" is a concept album continuing the epic narrative and story arc that started with "Awaiting Dawn", and building upon HEIDRA's musical trademarks of twin lead guitar harmonies, soaring orchestral passages, growled vocals mixed with powerful clean singing and a relentless barrage of crushing metal riffs
The story of a king deposed and his attempts to reclaim his throne continue and the album opens with the dawn of the day of reckoning and the march to the battlefield, where the two armies clash in a murderous fury. With victory seemingly at hand for our hero, events suddenly take a turn for the worse as he and all his army is cast into a hellish realm.
The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Marco Mastrobuono (HOUR OF PENANCE, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE) at Kick Recording Studio in Rome and is out now via Time To Kill Records.
The official music video for the single "Lady of the Shade" can be watched

OMEGAVORTEX - "PROMO 2018"
Release date: 13-07-2018
Genre: Black/Death Metal
Label: Self-Released
For fans of  NECROVORE, POSSESSED, MAYHEM, IMMOLATION, MORBID ANGEL.
German black/death metallers OMEGAVORTEX were formed in 2007 under the name of AMBEVILENCE. The band is releasing a Promo containing raw mixes of brand new material which is going to be featured on their debut LP. This Promotional Pre-Production release includes 4 well produced songs that showcase an extract of the dark arts that OMEGAVORTEX practices. 
OMEGAVORTEX is the ultimate end vortex from beyond the stars that consumes all life and matter, the purification by death through endless black void.
The band puts a lot of emphasis on creating material that stands out from the masses and that creates a very disturbing feeling when listened to. It is an paralysing hypnotic demonic trance that confronts you to your deepest fears. The recording for this release was very fast and since most of it is one-take, it includes all the raw characteristics of a demo while sounding more professional, due to the nature
of the recording environment which is “almost” studio like.

Far deadlier than the "Mothership" from the UK's "led airship", it's the "Mothershit" motherload from a grotesquely deformed three-headed bastard cerberus beast of gory Boogie from France that calls itself DEFECAL OF GERBE!
After nearly a decade-and-a-half of ageing through a delicate process of intestinal putrefaction, DEFECAL OF GERBE brings the faeces to the masses with the release of its oozing purulent full-length debut. Prepare for an assault of regurgitated, re-eaten, re-digested and re-defecated versions of demo-era (s)hits, as well as brand new spatters of brown matters for seventeen brainfarts of retarded guttural oozing-bootie-shaking Goregrind.
The whole shitstorm has been carefully mastered by the artisans at GLOBE AUDIO famed for their work with PSYKUP, LE GRAND ORCHESTRE DU SPLENDID and Albert DUPONTEL among others. This is definitely not for the faint of heart, but only for the fearless, for the toughest scatological gourmets, the trve rectal elite, fans of glittering princess farts, of glamorous shit-stained dance-floors and great (mirror)balls of fire - for the ones able to face the ugly truth that, yes, moms do also poop...
It's the Mothershit!

Thrash or be thrashed! Chilean heshers CRITICAL DEFIANCE are set to release their debut full-length, MISCONCEPTION.
CRITICAL DEFIANCE goes straight for the jugular with their relentless and intricate brand of old-school thrash metal. Though spawned in the depths of Chile's underground, CRITICAL DEFIANCE bear all the markings of a band that came straight from the 80s Bay Area scene.
Following two demos and a limited-edition split with Santiago's PARKCREST, CRITICAL DEFIANCE signed with Unspeakable Axe Records for the release of Misconception. This eight-track album is an aggressive assault of violent riffs, shredding, yet melodic leads and shouted group vocals.
Stream album track "What About You" at https://youtu.be/TxQ0WKquTPk
Misconception will be out February 8 on Unspeakable Axe Records.

Every once a while we can't resist putting out an outlandish release. This year it's been Arkheth, NigredoP.H.O.B.O.S., Veilburner and now there's 0N0. This Slovakian band is pushing the limit while retaining soul when they're at. Limited to just a 7" edition, this is for the hardcore fans of the style. Check out the official video on YouTube and also on Bandcamp
0N0 (SLOVAKIA) - 'CLOAKED CLIMAX CONCEALED' 
Genre - Atmospheric Doom/Death/Sludge Metal
Release Date - March 3rd, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Godflesh, Scorn, Drug Honkey, Jesu, P.H.O.B.O.S., The Angelic Process, Ufommamut
Enigmatic Slovakian entity 0N0 present two brand new songs which are in a league of their own for this release. Like the eccentric offspring of label mates
Drug Honkey and P.H.O.B.O.S., their Godflesh-driven vision of futuristic cacophony is both numbing and hallucinatory. It's an acid trip to the alien dimensions of a parallel world while retaining some semblance of cognizance. Mired in swathes of electric fuzz are traces of human emotions, drifting away into endless oblivion. 'Cloaked Climax Concealed' is but a tantalizing precursor to the massive full length that is due from this band.

DARK HELM is a Progressive Death Metal band based in India; they have been treading the boundaries of Metal and have been experimenting by infusing sounds from the World Music scene into their brand of Extreme Music. Their writing is laden with heavy riffs with a sprinkle of some ancient, contemporary ethnic instruments (like Sitar, Kyoto, Santoor, Saz, etc.).
Today, the band premiered their first track from the- forthcoming album entitled- 'HYMNUS DE ANTITHEIST'. The track 'Obey' is now officially premiered via
DECIBEL MAGAZINE here.
The band’s guitarist/ composer, Mohanish says, “This album is the sum total of all my hatred towards the state of humanity today. Let me clarify though; Over the past few years I have noticed my stance harden, as a rational thinker. My belief that "divinity is poison" has grown from a mere commentary on the human condition to a desperate need for a global change (if we are to survive the coming of age of the human race and become an advanced civilization worthy of wielding the tools we create).” He further adds, “I absolutely and equally hate the idea of "New Age" spiritualism (crystal healing, myths about pineal glands, quantum mysticism, etc) and every pseudoscience scientific schmuck (Deepak Chopra and Rhonda Byrne's names come to mind) trying to make a quick buck. I also detest ignorant people who establish their allegiances to political parties rather than political stances (people who go "I love Mr. /Mrs. XYZ, hence every policy he/she suggests is a good one"). I hate unregulated "Organic food" that gets sold under the guise of being good for you, while harming the earth's resources and the fear mongering and misrepresentation of GMOs that goes with it. I hate homeopathy, mystics, gurus, astrologers, anti-vaxers, "Vastu Experts", flat earthers, 432hz'ers and every other ENEMY OF REASON. They have made people's insecurities and ignorance into a multimillion dollar industry.”

'Blood' coming soon!!!
 HUMAN CULL unleash 'Revenant', this will be the UK Grind trio's second full length after 2014s blast exodus 'Stillborn Nation'.
ALL HUMAN CULL albums are available for free download!!!
  www.humancull.bandcamp.com/
 On 'Revenant' HUMAN CULL push their already frantic crust-tinged blast-heavy grind of the last release into overdrive, featuring a huge production from Will Blackmon (Gadget, The Arson Project) and furious instrumental performances running in the style of 'FETO' era Napalm Death or 'Human 2.0' Nasum.
Songs run between monstrous fleet-fingered trem picking blast-fests to open riffing frantic d-beats but rarely drop below FAST. Lyrics are primarily about totalitarianism, following the thematic setting of an imagined medieval cyber punk future. Think of the cover of Anticapital and imagine living there, feelings of monochrome horror and anxiety blend with commentary on modern stupidity, terrorism and propaganda.
Performances are tightly controlled throughout 'Revenant' , layered chainsaw guitars and growling bass underpinned by clean and audible drums could almost be called clinical if it weren't for the organic songwriting and gritty textures of call and response twin throat-wrenching vocals and crumbling valve-based distortion.
The band display clear death metal and crust influences here, and this is certainly the closest to death metal their sound has come. Strong tones from the likes of Unleashed, the ever present Swedeath classics like Entombed and Obituary are found rubbing shoulders with the angular notes of Discordance Axis and Doom, flowing together in one gribbly monstrosity of a release.
This album is the most polished example of contemporary grind from these veterans of the UK scene.

Sweden's progressive death mongers MOURNING SIGN have premiered a new song from forthcoming album CONTRA MUNDUM
Stream "Dualism"  mourningsign.bandcamp.com/track/dualism
MOURNING SIGN will release their third album, CONTRA MUNDUM, December 20 on Orchestrated Misery Recordings.  Another new song, "Nest of Vipers," is streaming at mourningsign.bandcamp.com/track/nest-of-vipers
Having formed in 1992 near Hallstahammer, Sweden, the band quickly hit the studio with their debut recording Last Chamber, which helped secure a recording contract with the Italian label Godhead.  The following year the band released the mini-CD Alienor (1993) followed by the self-titled Mourning Sign (1995). Both received favorable reviews from the media, but the band's second full length, Multiverse (1996), left many scribes and followers stunned! Multiverse set the standard for progressive death metal, but alas the following year the band simply went on hiatus. Members eventually started new projects (Sweden's Amaran one of several) and continued to churn out progressive-sounding material over the years.
Having reformed in 2016 MOURNING SIGN sought to continue their attitude and achievements, thus creating their third album, Contra Mundum (meaning in Latin to defy or oppose everyone else). Recorded in the year 2018, this release will be limited to only 500 copies, and features some incredible guitar work from Kari Kainulainen and Petri Aho.

A new school of old school death metal. Creating death metal that is authentically new while have a natural memory and understanding of the old. Rooted in early 90's progressive death metal, but with an unrelenting forward thinking approach, CONTRARIAN return with their third full-length release Their Worm Never Dies.
Spearheaded by guitar player Jim Tasikas, alongside George Kollias (Nile) simultaneously handling drum and vocal duties, CONTRARIAN is not a super group, but a unit of like-minded musicians that coincidentally converged on a vision of what a modern death metal band should sound like.
Organic sounding, yet aggressive and melodically complex, Their Worm Never Dies is packed with snake-like Schuldinerian-style riffage and atmospheric variations that will provide a wholly enticing listen to all those willing to take in its eccentricity.

OPTIMIST – “VERMÄCHTNIS“
Label:
BDHW Rec.
Release date: 01.02.2019
For more than eight years OPTIMIST have been working continuously with their aggressive mixture of Death Metal,Grind and Hardcore through the underground of the metal, hardcore and grind scene. With Their second album „Vermächtnis“ the quintet from the Ruhr area breaks again the borders of the uncompromising Death Metal and proves impressively why they are one of the best kept secrets of the scene. Also in the year 2018 German speaking Death Metal or Grindcore bands belong still to the rarities of the extreme music circus. But bands like TOTENMOND or JAPANISCHE KAMPFHÖRSPIELE demonstrated years ago that this mix works well. Founded in 2010 in the Ruhrarea OPTMIST walk on something different, musical paths than the mentioned bands but after a short phase of identification they decided early to use the German language for their extreme Music. Already on their debut album „Entseelt“ (BDHW Rec. / 2014) the Ruhrpottler proved how hard and effective they can shape their mix of hardcore metal. What confirmed the popularity of the listeners and the steadily growing demand for their music. And that regardless of the fact, that OPTIMIST had not played a single tour so far. In the next following years OPTIMIST released a Split 12” (BDHW Rec./ 2015) with the German Metalcore Outfit BITTERNESS EXHUMED and 7” „Der Zerfall“ (AFFRONT VINYL/ 2016) and played various shows and festivals. Now the long-awaited, second OPTIMIST Longplayer appears with „Vermächtnis“ and this shows that the quintet merge the boundaries of their musical elements completely into an incomparable unity. On the ten new songs, the Death Grind sound of OPTMIST achieves an uncompromising brutality that is unparalleled. Even the inevitable lyrics always seek the direct confrontation take a clear position without raising the forefinger. They polarize and are unpleasant at the same time. However, on their new Record „Vermächtnis“ OPTIMIST always remain honest, authentic and somehow optimistic in a very extreme and brutal way

Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide - Sentient Ruin in collaboration with Agipunk/Legion of the Dead and Aural Music is happy to present you with MUTANT FLESH - THE INCREDIBLE debut LP  by Los Angeles-based Deathrock shapeshifters DETH CRUX.
After debuting in 2015 with their staggering first EP Pears of Anguish, Los Angeles deathrock night stalkers Deth Crux (who feature in their ranks members of US doom legends Buried at Sea and of L.A. black/death heathens Lighting Swords of Death) return with their long awaited debut album - the haunting and chameleonic Mutant Flesh, forty minutes of shapeshifting and deviant horror punk/gothic rock soaked in neon, blood, sex, and perversion. 
Shrouded in an aura both erotic and extraterrestrial, Mutant Flesh is a modern post-punk juggernaut in which Deth Crux have distilled the most tumultuous, unclean, and eclectic aspects of their home town Los Angeles to create a dark punk opera of unparalleled seductiveness and darkness. Theirs is not the Los Angeles we all know. Instead it is a city they have transformed and reimagined through sound with its most dysfunctional and cinematic traits exaggerated and pushed to the forefront, haunted by neon-hungry ghosts and mutated subhuman creatures hiding behind black sunglasses among the surface population, where strange flesh is sold to fulfill unearthly desires. In Mutant Flesh Deth Crux channel the grandiose majesty and gloom of iconic UK goth bands like Bauhaus, Fields of the Nephilim, and Sister of Mercy, with the spooky and feral irreverence of Christian Death, projecting it all against their own personal audio-visual backdrop of decaying urban madness and sinister body horror to yield something truly both unseen and marvelously unsettling and seductive. 
Recorded and mixed by famed sound designer Sanford Parker (Leviathan, Wovenhand, Nachtmystium, Voivod etc.) in 2017 at Big Band Sound in Los Angeles, Mutant Flesh features contributions also by saxophone legend Bruce Lamont (Yakuza, Corrections House) and is already slated to become a classic dark goth/horror punk opera of our times.
Mutant Flesh has been featured abundantly leading up to its release with tracks premiered by Indy Metal Vault, Last Rites, and No Clean Singing, and with the full album finally premiered in full this week by CVLT Nation
Mutant Flesh was released on December 7 2018 on tape and vinyl in the US by Sentient Ruin, on vinyl in the EU by legendary Italian crust punk label Agipunk's goth subsidiary Legion of the Dead, and on CD by Italian dark metal label Aural Music.
Thank you as always for your time and attention given to our releases. Sincerely,  Sentient Ruin

K.K. DOWNING ist das erste Originalmitglied von JUDAS PRIEST, das sich mit einer Autobiografie ans Licht der Öffentlichkeit wagt!
»LEATHER REBEL – MEIN LEBEN MIT JUDAS PRIEST« ist nach »Der stählerne Weg von Judas Priest« (2007) erst das zweite Buch der zusammen mit Iron Maiden womöglich wichtigsten Heavy-Metal-Band Großbritanniens, das in deutscher Sprache erscheint. 1969 in Birmingham gegründet, prägten Judas Priest das Genre mit ihrem Twin-Guitar-Sound und ihrem Leder-Image wie kaum eine andere Band.
Mit insgesamt weit über 50 Millionen verkauften Tonträgern avancierten Priest in den achtziger Jahren dank Stücken wie „Breaking The Law“, „Living After Midnight“ oder „You've Got Another Thing Comin'“ zur archetypischen Heavy-Metal-Band.
Bis zum heutigen Tag hat allerdings kein Mitglied der Gruppe seine Sicht der Dinge in Buchform verarbeitet.
Dies holt der originale Gitarrist Kenneth Downing mit »Leather Rebel – Mein Leben mit Judas Priest« jetzt rechtzeitig zum goldenen Jubiläum der Gruppe nach.
Auf den 224 Seiten nimmt K.K. Downing kein Blatt vor den Mund, schildert seine eigene Kindheit im von häuslicher Gewalt geprägten Elternhaus ebenso schonungslos offen wie die Rivalität zu Iron Maiden.
Die Rolle von Rob Halford im Gefüge von Judas Priest ist ebenso ein Thema wie sein problematisches Verhältnis zum ehemaligen Gitarrenpartner Glenn Tipton und Managerin Jayne Andrews, das letztendlich zum seinem Abschied von der Gruppe im Jahre 2011 führte. Heute lebt K.K. Downing in Shropshire und trägt Judas Priest nach wie vor tief in seinem Herzen.
Die Erstauflage von »Leather Rebel – Mein Leben mit Judas Priest« erscheint in limitierter Auflage mit Hardcover-Einband.

OSTMETAL-Newsletter vom 03.12.2018 :  Guten Abend, liebe Ostmetal-Gemeinde! In wenigen Tagen wird bei German Democratic Recordings das neue Live-Album "WINTERSCHLACHT" der Erfurter Ostmetal-Legende MACBETH erscheinen, die es beim bereits ausverkauften Konzert anläßlich des 33jährigen
Jubiläums der Band im Erfurter "From Hell"-Club auch als auf 100 Exemplare limitiertes Bundle mit einer BlueRay-Disc sowie dem passenden Shirt zu kaufen geben wird. Kurz vor Weihnachten wird das am 09. Dezember 2017 aufgenommene Live-Album "Winterschlacht" auch noch als auf 300 Exemplare limitiertes Dreifach-Splatter-Vinyl erscheinen und ihr könnt die ab Samstag verfügbare Doppel-CD bereits jetzt im Ostmetal-Einkaufsladen
http://www.shop-027.de/shop-ostmetal.html       vorbestellen.
Außerdem wird im Laufe der nächsten Woche auch das neue EISENBLATT versandfertig sein, denn es hapert momentan nur noch am Druck-Papier, welches mir hoffentlich in Kürze geliefert wird. Alle Abonnenten bekommen ihr Heft natürlich wie immer per Rechnung frei Haus, aber falls jemand sein Exemplar am 08.12. in Erfurt persönlich überreicht haben möchte (um das Porto zu sparen), soll er mir per Mail oder via Facebook-Messenger Bescheid geben. Apropos Porto: Die Post hat das Entgelt für die Beförderung des EISENBLATT's im Juli mal wieder angehoben, so daß ich euch nun zuzüglich zum Heft-Preis von 2,00 € noch 1,50 € Porto abknüpfen muß. Darin enthalten sind übrigens auch die Kosten für die (wiederverwendbare) Versandtasche.
Außerdem möchte ich nochmal den Aufruf von Franziska Lemmor verbreiten, die für ihr Buch-Projekt noch Fotos von Platten, Tapes, Fanzines, Kleidung, Eintrittskarten, Flyern usw. sucht - oder wie sagte: Alles aus der Zeit, was man so finden kann. Gemeint sind natürlich überwiegend die Achtziger Jahre und wenn ihr Material für Franzi habt, dann schreibt ihr einfach eine Mail

Metallische Grüße, Hendrik

FALLEN TYRANT – „CHILDREN OF A NUCLEAR DAWN“
Bereits im Jahr 2008 als Soloprojekt gegründet, treiben Fallen Tyrant seit Anfang 2011 als Powertrio ihr Unwesen im Rhein-Main-Gebiet. Schon seit der ersten gemeinsamen Demo war die Marschrichtung klar festgelegt – seitdem haben Fallen Tyrant ihren eigenen Stil aus brachialem 90er Blackmetal, einem deutlichen Heavy-Metal-Einschlag und psychedelischen Einflüssen perfektioniert. Von Welt und Szene weitgehend isoliert, ohne Rücksicht auf Trends oder was die selbsternannte Elite für „true“ befindet, kreieren die drei Musiker in Darmstadt ein Stück fiesen Getrümmers nach dem anderen, um in unregelmäßigen Abständen in voller Gesichtsbemalung hervorzukriechen und verwirrten Konzertbesuchern ihren blanken Hass ins Gesicht zu speien.
Fallen Tyrant spielen Black Metal alter Schule. Nicht mehr und ganz bestimmt nicht weniger. Rasende Tremoloriffs, wütende Blastbeat-Attacken, dröhnend verzerrter Bass und raue, aggressive Vocals sind die Grundausrüstung der südhessischen Kriegsmaschine. Doch auf den sieben Songs des zweiten vollen Albums Children of a Nuclear Dawn richten sie mit diesen denkbar konservativen Mitteln dennoch auf kreativste Weise ultimativen Schaden an. Und das mitnichten bloß durch besondere Akzente wie dezente Saxophon- und Syntheinsätze auf „Shifting Tides Along the Rhine“ und „Astronomy“ oder vereinzelte klare Vocalparts, sondern schlicht und ergreifend durch originelles und intelligentes Songwriting mit Charakter, Technik und Melodie – und Sinn für die Ursprünge harter Musik.
This is South-Hessian Black Metal. Fuck everyone!
"Chidrenof a Nuclear Dawn" hat eine Spielzeit von 53:31 Minuten und beinhaltet 7 Stücke:
Dominator Overlord
Shifting Tides Along the Rhine
Bullshit Bombardment
Death Code World Manifest
Children of a Nuclear Dawn
A Whisper From the Concrete Below
Astronomy

Leute! Die Rheinberger Rocker ARTEFUCKT stehen mit einem neuen Album in den Startlöchern. "STIGMA" so lautet der klangvolle Name des Nachfolgers zum Artefuckt Debutalbum "Manifest". Und genau an dieses knüpft es auch nahtlos an!
"STIGMA" ist eine Abrechnung mit der Vergangenheit und ihrer Stimmen, welche verurteilten und spotteten. Aber "STIGMA" hat noch viel mehr zu erzählen! Inbrünstig und voller Gefühle strotzt es vor Leben und trotzt eben diesem gleichermaßen! "STIGMA" gibt Kraft, es beflügelt, befreit, spricht aus dem Herzen, appelliert, gibt Mut, teilt mit und empfindet! Aber es kritisiert auch, stellt sich entgegen, zeigt auf, beendet, stellt in Frage und ignoriert!
"STIGMA" ist vielleicht noch persönlicher, als es "MANIFEST" eh schon war, aber mit Sicherheit kein Stück weniger! Erstmals gibt es das Package auch im limitierten und handsignierten Boxset mit 2 weiteren Bonus Tracks und jeder Menge Fanartikeln.
Dieses Album ist definitiv mehr als ein würdiger Nachfolger und wird mit Sicherheit begeistern! Seid dabei und macht 2019 zu einem ARTEFUCKTISCHEN Jahr !!!

THE OSSUARY – “SOUTHERN FUNERAL”
Genre: Doom Metal
Label: Supreme Chaos Records
Vertrieb: Cargo Records
VÖ: 26.01.2019
Geht es dir wie uns und du vermisst die authentische, erdige Kraft des klassischen Heavy Rocks? Jener Heavy Rock, der sogar noch eine gewisse Nähe zum Prog im eigentlichen Sinne offenbart und die frische Wildheit der ersten Metal-Bands der 70er Jahre, als der Begriff Heavy Metal so noch gar nicht existierte, in sich birgt? Wenn es dir auch so geht, dann sind THE OSSUARY genau dein Sound!
Scheiß auf Trends, scheiß auf Moderne! Bei THE OSSUARY regiert ein Sound aus Sabbath-artigen Riffs, düsterer Pentagram-Atmosphäre und melodischen Thin Lizzy-/Wishbone Ash-Melodien und guten alten Iron Maiden-Gitarrenleads. Prog-Passagen, die einstige Captain Beyond ehren, finden sich im THE OSSUARY-Klangkosmos ebenso wie epische Ausschweifungen à la Rainbow.
Die Band wurde erst im Oktober 2014 in Süditalien aus der Taufe gehoben, fühlt sich in ihrem Sound aber in einer längst vergangenen Zeit wieder. Von Beginn an werkeln die Herren fleißig an Songs, nehmen Demos und Promos auf und erarbeiten sich in ihrer Heimat einen ersten, sehr achtbaren Bekanntheitsstatus.
Liebhaber von Heavy Rock und Doom fühlen sich in der Welt von THE OSSUARY schon beim ersten Riff wohl. Kurz vor der Veröffentlichung ihres Debütalbums „Post Mortem Blues“ unterschrieb die Band bei Supreme Chaos Records. Von da an gibt es nur noch eine Mission: den altehrwürdigen Sound in der ganzen Welt zu zelebrieren. Seit der anschließenden Europa-Tour baut die Band ihren Status fortwährend aus und auch die Presse zeigte sich von den Qualitäten mehr als angetan.
Jetzt umgibt uns erneut der wundervoll-modrige Geruch der Vergangenheit, und auch die ersten Staubwölkchen rieseln wieder – denn THE OSSUARY sind zurück!
Das Zweitwerk heißt „Southern Funeral“ und legt noch mal eine Schippe oben drauf: mehr Drive, mehr Melancholie und einfach mehr von allem!
Zurücklehnen, Augen schließen und einfach genießen!

On the bottom of the lake. Hiding in the dark. There is a creature, that was never meant to be. Once a human being, now a chimera, a fish-man, guarding the depth.
A story of self hatred, agony and at some point acceptance. The LP „SEE-MENSCH“ from NEMUS contains six songs, that will tell you the story of the water human and take you right into his empire in the depth of the lake.
A mixture of black metal, post rock, folk instruments and tortured vocals create a dark and energy filled atmosphere, which is supported by self recorded forest and water sounds.
