INCREMATE – „ VIOLENCE AND INSANITY“
DYING – „ DEMO 2017 “ ( TAPE )
'EIN WILDER RITT DURCH DREI ALBEN' WATCH OUT STAMPEDE veredeln ihre größten Hits auf Vinyl. Pünktlich zu Weihnachten legt das Bielefelder Indielabel NOIZGATE Records noch ein besonderes Goodie unter den Baum und kündigt zum 07.12.2018 (VÖ) die Veröffentlichung einer brandneuen WATCH OUT STAMPEDE VINYL EDITION an! Die zehn handverlesenen Tracks bieten einen feinen Rundumschlag durch das Repertoire der Bremer
Post-Hardcore-Institution. Erscheinen wird die Pressung übrigens nicht nur in schwarz, sondern auch als
Sonderedition auf farbigem Vinyl.
Endlich ist es soweit: WATCH OUT STAMPEDE veredeln ihre größten Evergreens auf funkelndem Vinyl!
Schließlich sorgen die fünf Bremer Jungs bereits seit 2011 mit ihrem wuchtigen Sound zwischen Post-Hardcore, Emo- und Metalcore für Wirbel in der Szene und können mit drei erfolgreichen Albumveröffentlichungen und Shows u.a. beim Reload Festival oder auf dem legendären Wacken Open Air bereits eine ganze Reihe an Highlights in ihrer Bandgeschichte verbuchen. Da wird es langsam Zeit für ein Überblickswerk, das nicht nur treue Fanherzen höher schlagen lassen dürfte!
Die VINYL EDITION mit einer Auswahl an zehn Songs quer durch immerhin sieben Jahre WATCH OUT STAMPEDE beschreibt Sänger und Gitarrist Dennis Landt kurz und knackig als 'wilden Ritt durch drei Alben': Goldenen Classics Marke 'Emily', Ohrwürmern wie 'We Are The Branches' und aktuellen Hits à la 'Paper Hearts' liefern einen umfangreichen Rundumschlag durch das Gesamtwerk des Bremer Quintetts. WATCH OUT STAMPEDE über die Zusammenstellung: 'Da ist eigentlich alles dabei, wovon wir uns denken: 'Mensch, hätten wir das mal gleich so rausgebracht!''
Serviert wird das Menü aus fetten Breakdowns, harten Metalgitarren, atemlosen Blastbeats, wütenden Shouts und glasklaren Refrains in gleich zwei erlesenen Varianten: Einmal klassisch, auf schwarzem Vinyl und für echte Plattenliebhaber als limitierte Purple Vinyl Collector's Edition, jeweils inklusive Inlay mit allen
Lyrics. Ein Download-Code darf im Lieferumfang natürlich ebenfalls nicht fehlen.
Für Neugierige gewähren Band und Label schon mal einen Blick auf Artwork und Tracklist der Platte:
01 - Witch Trial
02 - We Are The Branches
03 - Emily
04 - Tides
05 - 50 50 / Vultures
06 - No Confidence
07 - H.A.T.E.
08 - Paper Hearts
09 - SVTVNIC
10 - Chances
Übrigens halten WATCH OUT STAMPEDE für alle, die sich am 28. oder 29. Dezember zu den beiden Homecoming Shows der Band im Tower Musikclub in Bremen einfinden, ein Kontingent an LPs in beiden Editionen bereit.
Kleiner Tipp: Die Show mit Annisokay am 29.12. ist bereits ausverkauft ? aber für den Zusatztermin einen Tag vorher gibt es noch Tickets. Schöne Grüße an den Weihnachtsmann!

Vielleicht geht es dir ja wie uns, und du vermisst die authentische, erdige Kraft des klassischen Heavy Rock mit einer gewissen Nähe zum Prog im eigentlichen Sinne und die frische Wildheit der ersten Anfänge der Metalbands der 70er, als es den Begriff „Heavy Metal“ so noch gar nicht gab. Dann sind THE OSSUARY definitiv dein Ding! Die Italiener haben 2017 mit „Post Mortem Blues“ ihr hochgelobtes Debütalbum veröffentlicht und werden Anfang 2019 nachlegen.
Denn am 26.01.2019 wird „SOUTHERN FUNERAL“ via Supreme Chaos Records veröffentlicht. Die ersten Pressereaktionen deuten es bereits an: THE OSSUARY haben noch eine Schippe zugelegt – mehr Drive, mehr Melancholie, einfach mehr von allem!
Tracklist:
1.Walk Into Sepulchral Haze
2.Maze Of No Return
3.Belphegor
4.Southern Funeral
5.Eternal Pyre
6.Sleep Demon
7.Under The Spell
8.Shadow Of Plague

Mit „SINGULARITÄTEN“ setzen FERNDAL ihren 2016 begonnen Weg fort, (Black-) Metal mit klassischen Elementen zu verweben. Wer dabei aber Keyboard Sounds und kitschige Samples erwartet, irrt: Es handelt sich keinesfalls um künstlich symphonisch aufgeblasene Popmusik! Vielmehr werden klassische Kompositionsstrukturen denen des Black Metal gegenübergestellt, gehen ineinander über und werden gekreuzt: Black Metal Songs im klassischen Gewand (Klavierquintett in e-moll „Mother North“, eine Klassik-Adaption des Satyricon Klassikers), klassische Komposition im Black Metal Sound („Serenade“) – und alles das, was dazwischen liegt.
„Singularitäten“ wurde im August 2018 im Hellforge Studio von Marco Brinkmann aufgenommen, gemixt und gemastert, „Mother North“ wurde aufgenommen im Konzertsaal der Musikhochschule Münster von  Michael Hierer. Gastmusiker haben an 4 Celli, Konzertflügel, Orgel und Waldhorn) zur Klangvielfalt beigetragen.
Thematisch bewegt sich das Album um philosophische, psychologische und emotionale Aspekte von Freiheit und Existenz – mal mit kalter Präzision, mal mit expressiver Gewalt. Die Musik und die Texte stammen aus der Feder von Lestaya und Sorathiel. Das neue Album der Band ist nicht nur deutlich länger als der Vorgänger „Ferndal“, sondern auch abwechslungsreicher und düsterer: anspruchsvoller und mitreißender melodischer Black Metal!

Verehrte Freigeister, 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.

Portuguese metallers DESTROYERS OF ALL partner again with Mosher Records for the release of their new album "THE VILE MANIFESTO", coming out February 2nd, 2019.
To celebrate the announcement of the new album, the band has premiered the lyric video “False Idols” as the first display of new music. “The song’s about the atrocities operated by a military unit that performed pseudo science in order to prove a point - and failed”, says the vocalist João Mateus, who clearly states “the lyric is a heartfelt tribute to all the victims of war.”
DESTROYERS OF ALL – FALSE IDOLS (LYRIC VIDEO) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ho6chwl49XQ
Charged with vicious riffs, voracious vocals and ear blasting drums, this record marks a new chapter for the band as it pushes the boundaries of heaviness of their sound more than ever before. As a result, this album is more violent and straight-to-the-point than the previous ones, yet without losing the creative identity that marks the band's music since its inception.
The album cover was hand drawn by legendary artist Mark Riddick, who has previously worked with bands such as Arch Enemy, Exodus, Morbid Angel, Mortician, The Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation and many others.
The new album can be pre-ordered at www.destroyersofall.com. Several bundles are available, including different combinations of the album, merchandise and tickets for the presentation show.
"The Vile Manifesto" (2019) is the third release of the band after the debut EP "Into the Fire" (2013) and the LP "Bleak Fragments" (2016), both critically acclaimed by specialized media. The band once again chose to record the new album at the Golden Jack Studios in Portugal, also having it mixed and mastered by João Dourado.
Tracklist:
Tohu Wa-Bohu (4:41)
False Idols (3:21)
Destination: Unknown (4:51)

The official music video for the song 'My Last White Light' from German/Dutch progressive metallers SACROSANCT, founded by former PESTILENCE guitarist Randy Meinhard, can be seen below. The track is taken from SACROSANCT's fourth album, "NECROPOLIS", which will be released on November 30 via ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records.
SACROSANCT 'My Last White Light' music video: https://youtu.be/hwVlxhRpYeU
The disc was engineered, mixed and mastered by Max Morton of Morton Studios, he has worked with a wide variety of acts, including prominent Ukranian metalcore combo JINJER. The objective with "Necropolis" was to record a classic, analog-sounding album using modern technologies, and at the same time avoid any modern metal clichés.
The epic cover art for “Necropolis” was designed by Giannis Nakos based on the band’s ideas, and perfectly portrays the album’s dark subject matter. It prominently features SACROSANCT’s new mascot, the Weeping Angel – a guardian and an avenger of injustice.
"Necropolis" track listing:
1. The New Age Of Fear
 2. My Last White Light
 3. The Grim Sleeper
 4. Only One God
 5. Melancholy
 6. Clouds Obscured The Sun
 7. NecroPolice
 8. The Pain Still Lasts
While "Necropolis" bears all of the hallmarks and intricacies that characterize SACROSANCT, it displays a more mature and focused songwriting approach. Songs like "The New Age Of Fear", "My Last White Light" and "Only One God" are lyrically thought-provoking, creating a brand of metal that still makes the band hard to categorize. Like its predecessor, "Tragic Intense", which was released in 1993, "Necropolis" places a strong emphasis on melancholy melodies and clean vocals, but also incorporates many harmony guitar parts, faster tempos and some modern twists that mark the beginning of a new chapter for the band.
SACROSANCT will celebrate the release of "Necropolis" with a special party at Hypothalamus in Rheine, Germany, on Friday, November 30.
SACROSANCT is:
Richard F. Hesselink – vocals
Randy Meinhard (ex-PESTILENCE) – guitars
Christian Göwert – guitars
Kees Harrison (ex-SPHERE OF SOULS) – bass
Jonas Schütz – drums
SACROSANCT was formed in 1988 by guitarist Randy Meinhard and drummer Marco Foddis, who had learned to know each either while joining PESTILENCE. In 1990, SACROSANCTreleased its debut album, "Truth Is - What Is". The album is characterized by technically sophisticated thrash metal. The dual guitars create a straight as well as spherical and melodious tapestry of sound, interrupted by the tight drumming and the moaning, but angry and rude voice. Creative band head Randy Meinhard considered guitar duos of bands like QUEENSRŸCHE, EXODUS and IRON MAIDEN as a main influence, and Ace Frehley of KISS as initial spark.
SACROSANCT released its second album, "Recesses For The Depraved", in 1991. With a more edgy sound it was little melodious and spheric than the debut. For the album cover, SACROSANCT even managed to secure the rights for H.R. Giger's picture "Das Spiegelbild". When Giger died, 23 years later, Rolling Stone magazine stated "the disturbing Giger cover art accurately conveyed the savage nature of the music."
The third album, "Tragic Intense", was even more melodious and spherical than the debut. On the other hand, staccato parts are rarely on it. In an interview for the music mag Iron Pages, Randy Meinhard stated in 1993 that the dark basic mood is what we intended to do. It just should sound sinister. In that issue Markus Wosgien (Nuclear Blast) described the album as a mixture of thrash, doom and power metal, and classified it as a milestone in this genre.

With their debut full-length album "MOTHER CULTURE" having hit the streets on Dark Essence Records last month, Norwegian Blackgazers AVAST have today premiered a video for a track from the album.
The video, for the track "The World Belongs to Man",  can be seen at
 https://youtu.be/s_pYSniSOTk
About the track  itself, the band had this to say:
"The World Belongs to Man" is the contemporary story of humankind and reflects where we find ourselves today, as we begin to realise that our way of life is slowly killing the planet.  The song also express anger and frustration at not being able to stop this process, knowing that to be able to do so would require such radical political, economic and cultural changes that certain powerful people would lose both money and power in the process.
Hailing from Stavanger, Norway, AVAST consists of Hans Olaf Myrvang (AGENDA) on bass and vocals, Trond Salte (AGENDA),  Ørjan Lund (NAG) on guitars, and Stian Steensnæs (LIK) on drums.  Together  they fuse  the aesthetics of black metal with the atmospherics of post-rock in order to create a soundscape that is both breathtaking and mesmerizing,  and whose lyrical themes are not centered around the usual black metal topics, but tend more towards a philosophical and poetical take on social and environmental issues.
Looking ahead to 2019 AVAST have already been confirmed to appear at Trondheim Calling in January and the Inferno Metal Festival in Oslo in April.  
"Mother Culture" is available in CD, Digital and limited edition white vinyl formats from all the usual retail and streaming services as well as directly from the following:

TOR MARROCK – “ THE CONCEPT OF SELF”
Genre:
Dark Gothic Metal
For fans of: Moonspell | My Dying Bride | Monumentum
In the deep velvetshadows between the flames figures twist and entwine, dancing on the edge of perception, frightening but deeply alluring. There's a soft, sensual voice inviting you to step through the flames into the enticing wickedness beyond. Words of promise and ritual spiral through the night air, carried on silver threads of sound, music that speaks to something deep, primal and all but forgotten. The music offers a connection to truths you once knew, it promises passion beyond reason and an unveiling of secrets. Knowledge and lust, power and revelation, transcendence through pleasure...
The music that calls from beyond the flames is The Concept Of Self, the third collection of eldritch sorceries from the dark masters of Tor Marrock. These songs hypnotise you, set fire to your blood and draw you into their web as they take control of the beating of your heart. Then, like a serrated blade drawn from within a silken sheath, their cruel riffs begin to dissect you. Thrill to the whispered promises of guest vocalist Liv Free on '(Let's Make) Love In The Dark', feel the fear as you realise that the path home is long forgotten as 'The Dark In Your Eyes' draws you ever onward into the black. Finally emerge, bloodied and new born, forever changed, into 'The Concept Of Self' - the album's epic conclusion.
Tor Marrock descended from the mountains of west Wales in 2005, bringing with them their first demo, The Death Of Summer, a first glimpse into their world of desire driven witchery. Two albums followed; A Gothic Romance (2007) and Destroy The Soul (2013) - each a step further into the darkness. Now, as the nights draw in and winter looms once more, Black Vulture Records are ready to light the flames again and summon you all to The Concept Of Self. On December 13th the chanting will begin and Tor Marrock will call from beyond the flames. New pleasures await you in the shadows. Give in to your desires and join the dance once more...

As they close out their 25th year as a heavy metal powerhouse, JUNGLE ROT have released ‘A BURNING CINDER,’ the latest video from their self-titled album, released this past July.  
Watch “A Burning Cinder” @ Revolver.
“I call this a ‘Frankenstein’ creation, it has all the elements needed for a good metal song - groove, thrash, speed and killer lyrics,” admits Matrise. “It is one of my favorites in our catalog and I wanted to expand about the government trying to control, manipulate and force feed citizens into what we should believe in or not. It goes over really well live and we can’t wait to continue playing it on the next tour.”
JUNGLE ROT recently announced the Send Forth Oblivion Tour Part 1, their first European tour in five years. Matrise expands, “I’m very excited to get back to Europe and play our style of old school metal to all the head-bangers around. We will also come back in the summer for the Send Forth Oblivion Tour Part 2 with more dates, mostly on the festival circuit. 2019 is going to be a hell of a year, let’s get crushing!”

FEEL NO PAIN - "INTO THE CHAOS"
Genre: Thrash Metal/Heavy Metal
Label: Self-released
FEEL NO PAIN is a heavy metal band from Madrid, Spain, formed by brothers Héctor and David Las Heras (guitars and vocals). In the spring of 2014 they completed a stable lineup with the incorporation of Víctor Santos (bass) and César Lorente (drums). Mixing their epic thrash inuences (Metallica, Slayer, Sepultura) with some heavy metal elements (Iron Maiden, Blind Guardian) they released their demo “First God Of The Earth” in 2016.
In the spring of 2017, Viti and César leave the band, and Xorth and Carlos Fernández join to play bass and drums respectively. Their entry is a big step in quality for the band, which is consolidated in their next E.P. “Into The Chaos”, released in October 1st 2018, with cover artwork by French artist Remy Cooper (Arch Enemy, Suicide Silence, Cryptopsy, etc) and to great reviews in the metal media in Spain.
The band comments:
"We give priority to freedom when writing songs, our sound is a mixture of influences collected over many years of listening to music, from the thrash metal of the first Metallica to the melancholy melodies of Paradise Lost, through the guitar duels of Iron Maiden, or the crunchy metal of Machine Head. We can go from straight forward metal based on mosh inducing rhythms, to intertwined melodic guitar goldsmithery.
Into The Chaos is a mix of recent songs and old ones, but as the line up changed a year and half ago, the old songs were given new life and new arrangements, so they sound totally fresh right now. Feel No Pain is a riff based band, so the songs usually come from guitar ideas written by David and Héctor, and then in the rehearsal space we all arrange them.
It was recorded at Lasting Noise in Madrid, with mixing and mastering by Adrián Hidalgo, and we went for a more classic sound, not as processed as a lot of metal these days."
Lineup:
David Las Heras (guitar and vocals
Héctor Las Heras (guitar and vocals)
Xorth (bass and vocals)
Carlos Fernández (drums)

Lifelost, which is a band of Wormed member Phlegeton, has just revealed the official video via Metal Injection AT THIS LINK. It's a brand new band that has received acclaim from both critics and fans alike. Writer Cody Davis wrote this about the band in his article -
"The sort of swirling void of black metal a project like Lifelost makes is certainly gripping."
LIFELOST (SPAIN) - 'DIALOGUES FROM BEYOND'
Genre
- Black Metal
Release Date - October 28th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - Portal, Deathspell Omega, Mgla, Gaerea, Nigredo, Blut Aus Nord, Emperor, Schammasch
Wormed member Phlegeton creates spellbinding black metal under the moniker of Lifelost, his latest band. Creating complex patterns, Lifelost delves into the psyche of the listener and tears up preconceived notions about the style. Dark, harrowing and suspenseful, their music is a journey through your subconscious thoughts when you're at your most vulnerable. It throws up a plethora of emotions which are difficult to fully grasp at once. It's expressed with rare fluidity and grit, as the album breezes through its relatively short playing time, leaving you begging for more. This is a short and intense excursion to a different murky dimension where there is more happening than meets the eye.

Today Italian noise/crust outfit OTHISMOS reveal new single "Hymn Of Victory" at popular metal magazine Toilet Ov Hell. Check it out HERE
"Canto..." is the second single off the band's new record, "Separazione". Recently Indy Metal Vault premiered first single "Canto dell'Estinzione"
HERE
"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 new 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 will be 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
05. The Fangless Beast
06. 100 Years Demise
07. The Plague
08. Tale of a Righteous Man

For years now WARDRUNA founder Einar Selvik have done acoustic concerts and lectures, performing Wardruna songs on his own, as well as creations made for the TV-show Vikings in an acoustic format. Now parts of this material has finally been recorded “live in studio” in Solslottet Studio in Bergen, and is set for release today through By Norse.
“SKALD” takes the listener on a musical journey outside the massive soundscape that Wardruna is known for and into a simpler and more direct form, where voice, poetry and ancient instruments like Kravik-lyre, Taglharpa and Bukkehorn lead the way.
Einar Selvik comments:
“Skald” was recorded live in the studio with the intention of capturing the raw and uncompromising energy of a live performance rather than aiming for a flawless and polished expression. It sets out to give voice to the ancient craft that once lay at the heart of the Norse oral traditions, presented as it takes shape in the hands of a humble contemporary skald today.
All formats of the album contains an extensive booklet with all lyrics translated as well as a solid introduction to the Skald and Old Norse poetry written by the acclaimed Icelandic author and Old Norse philologist Bergsveinn Birgisson.

Rudra members are in another band called The Wandering Ascetic who have written their sophomore album in similar style but without the exotic instruments. This is a more straightforward, hard-hitting version of Rudra's music but it still retains elements of spiritual dissonance. Listen to the first song that's uploaded on Bandcamp and YouTube. The link to the impressive and fairly unique black/thrash metal album will be sent via Haulix shortly.
THE WANDERING ASCETIC (SINGAPORE) - 'CRIMSON' 
Genre
- Black/Thrash Metal
Release Date - February 12th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Asia (sub-label) 
For fans of - Rudra, Aura Noir, Norse, Sathanas, early Bathory, Mayhem, Darkthrone 
Rudra members create some more exemplary black/thrash metal music, this time without the Indian classical instruments but retaining the trademark spiritual fervour. The Wandering Ascetic has dissonant, nay, hypnotic riffing which is rare in the style. It is underpinned by some crushing grooves which elevates the entire art form to different level. All in all, this is fascinating black/thrash metal that draws its influences from the Hellenic black metal scene as well as from Rudra and is a fresh take on a style that has largely been stagnating until now. ‘Crimson’ is easily the band’s finest and its life-transforming concept is expressed impeccably through the unmistakable artwork of Mark Riddick.

French Death Metal heavy-weights AD PATRES just unleashed "Symbiosick", debut single from their anticipated second full-length, "A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO HUMAN EXPERIMENTS" due out via XENOKORP on February 15, 2019 on CD, LP & Digital.
The album draws a somber parallel between psychology and religion, blurring the thin line between those two mind-manipulation “schools” clearly showing psychology is the new Christianity and psychanalysts the new inquisitors of the “right way of thinking” through a relentless, pure Death Metal, album that dissects both (religion and psychology) through a part each, like twisting the brain in a split wide open skull.
"Symbiosick", the single, is the fifth song from the album, closing its first part, the one about psychology. Not recommended for the faint of heart, this is French Haute Suture!

CROWS OVER BRÁVELLIR – “SPELLS OF THE DEAD / INTO KINGLY DEATH”
Genre: Epic Blackened Doom Metal
For fans of: Darkified | Primordial| Celtic Frost | Edge Of Sanity
"Soon the earth will cover the withering bones  And the world will forget all the names"
But the crows never forget. From the cold northern seas to the fields of battle, from the clash of steel upon steel to the pleading of the wounded...and finally to the silence of nightfall as the last drops of blood seep slowly into the cold soil. Above it all fly the crows, their obsidian eyes watching and recording, committing to memory and legend the victory of King Sigurd Hring over the warriors of Harald Wartooth on the moors of Brávellir...
"Who dares tread like a thief in the dark
 
To whom belongs the torch of which flickering flame casts its light upon walls made of stone"
And the crows are still watching when the resting places of gods and kings are violated, still watching when the spirits of the dead arise, still watching as they mete out their dreadful punishments.
Crows Over Brávellir are a band that bring to glorious life the ancient tales of Scandinavia, blending history, myth and fantasy as cunningly as they interweave epic heavy metal, doom metal, black metal and traditional Swedish folk music into one enthralling, magical sound. Formed by ex and current members of Darkified and Grave, the Crows are steeped in the traditions of Swedish extreme metal and all that experience has gone into crafting these unique, majestic songs.
Originally released in the summer months of 2018, the Spells Of The Dead EP went largely unheard and unnoticed, a closely guarded secret treasure of the underground. However, like prising a gem from the rigid, skeletal grasp of a corpse, Dawnbreed Records have decided to take the music of the Crows Over Brávellir from the jealous possession of the few and cast it out into the world on black wings. And so the crows are coming, soaring to every corner of the world, bringing the tale of Sigrud and Harald, bringing the secrets of the haunted tombs, bringing some of the most incredible epic metal that has ever been conjured into life.
"Archaic wisdom
Ancient pride
Spells of the dead
Bringing dust and bone back to life"
Line-up:
Martin Gustafsson - Vocals/Guitars
Rikard Blid - Bass
Stefan Kronqvist - Drums

APOSTASY RECORDS News :
OBSCENITY – “ SUMMONING THE CIRCLE”
Since their latest album „Retaliation“, Obscenity went through many changes. The most obvious being the additions of their new vocalist Manuel Siewert (December Flower) and their new bass axe man David Speckmann (Burial Vault). Both are now presenting their recording-debuts with Obscenity on “Summoning The Circle”, accompanied by the band’s veterans Hendrik Bruns (guitar) and Sascha Knust (drums) as well as guitarist Christoph Weerts. The recordings for the new songs took place at the Soundlodge Studio (Anvil, God Dethroned, Dew-Scented) with longtime-partner Joerg Uken and in guitarist Christoph Weerts’ own studio while mixing and mastering were done by Christoph Brandes in his Iguana Studio (Necrophagist, Spheron, Maladie). The result speaks for itself and delivers punchy and brutal classic death metal at its meanest. This is the perfect start into 2019, which marks the band’s 30th year in history!
DEADBORN– “ DOGMA ANTI GOD”
Six years have passed since “Mayhem Maniac Machine” was released, but the sounds of the shots fired out of this very effective, technical death metal weapon are still reverberating in the ear. Now, the Southern Germans prepare their next gunfire: “Dogma Anti God”. The band recorded the nine tracks together with producer Kristian „Kohle“ Kohlmannslehner (Aborted, Benighted) in his Kohlekeller Studio and created an album that is musically more open than its predecessor without losing DEADBORN’s uniqueness and recognition value. This dogma is irrevocable!
On December 7th, 2018 “Dogma Anti God” will be released via Apostasy Records.
Line-Up 2018:
Mario Petrovic – Vocals (ex-Necrophagist)
Kevin Olasz - Lead/ Rhythm Guitar (ex-Jack Slater / Aardvarks)
Slawek Foltyn – Drums (ex-Necrophagist)
Jo Morath - Rhythm Guitar
Giulio Rimoli – Bass

EMILS – “ FIGHT TOGETHER FOR…”( LP / RE – RELEASE )
DEPRESSION - „ UNGLAUBE“( LP )
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.

L'IRA DEL BACCANO haben bereits durch die Alben "Terra 42" (2014) und "Paradox Hourglass" (2017) mit ihrem, nennen wir es mal so: Doomdelic Instrumental Space Rock deftige Visitenkarten hinterlassen.
Grund genug, dem sagenumwobenen ersten Longplayer "SI NON SEDES IS… LIVE MMVII" nach elf Jahren im Diehard-Underground einen ersten physischen Release zu verpassen.
Das Album entstand live auf der Bühne und fängt die Energie und Hingabe der Band bestens ein.
Leider kam es nur digital in Umlauf (MySpace anyone?), bekam aber beste Kritiken (u.a. vom Roadburn-Blog und dem Decibel Magazine). "Si Non Sedes Is…" erscheint jetzt als Digipak-CD, in diversen edlen Vinyl-Editionen und als Download.
Download und Vinyl enthalten zwei Bonustracks.

About the band:
ENEMY INSIDE was formed in 2017 out of Aschaffenburg, Germany by Nastassja Giulia (Vocals) and Evan K (Guitar), who through wide ranging musical experimentation found their own unique sound - somewhere between "Dark Rock" and "Modern Metal". The music strikes a catchy, mystical chord as the powerful female lead vocals are intertwined with aggressive arrangements and catchy hooks. ENEMY INSIDE shares elements with Evanescence, Lacuna Coil, Amaranthe, Delain, HIM etc.
Enemy Inside is:
Nastassja Giulia - Vocals
Evan K - Lead Guitar
David Hadarik - Rhythm Guitar
Dominik Stotzem - Bass
Feli Keith - Drums
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”) is a black metal act based in Brescia, Italy.
The band will release their debut album via Promethean Fire / Kolony Records in early 2019. The record is a visceral, multi-faceted flow that often blurs the line between black, death and melodic death-doom metal.
More details, pre-orders, alongside many more news will be unveiled soon. In the meantime, a song off the album, first single "SPARK TO FIRE TO SUN", is now streaming on YouTube. Check it out
HERE!
THE SCARS IN PNEUMA initiallystarted 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.
 As we have hinted at above, 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.

FORGOTTEN WISDOM PRODUCTION  November news ! We have several releases in the making, that should be out from next week until december !
The split between two promising french bands : BLACKOWL and ST BARTHELEMY'S TEMPLE. BLACKOWL keeps the ruthless of old school Black Metal and combining the power of Thrash Metal with dirty rock'n'roll attitude. It's hard to find bands to compare but to me, the closest are latest Darkthrone and early Grand Belial's Key !
As for ST BARTHELEMY'S TEMPLE, the style is pure Black Metal, raw and relentless. Orthodox to the style, it's even surprising that it has not been recorded in the early 2000's. A thick atmosphere sets up, as the tempo comes to mid-pace, the creepy voice lurks around, the Black Doom Metal they play reminds me sometimes of Ghast ! This special release will come very limited. Only 100 copies will be available on 10" vinyl MLP and 100 copies on tape.
Some preview music can be listened to on bandcamp : https://forgottenwisdomprod.bandcamp.com/album/blackowl-st-barthelemys-temple-split
After ten years of existence, french old school Death Metal band AFFLICTION GATE has decided to stop. After several releases and plenty of concerts, the band has come to this decision, and will release a last EP, POSTHUMOUS. 4 tracks of old school Death Metal, maybe the perfect testimony !
Finland is back in the roster of FWP, this time with a band I like since years : FUNERARY BELL ! We will release a special CD for this band as it's a live album that was meant to be the very last of the band. A magical and artistic funeral procession. Luckily, there will be more concerts and albums. This live album has a great sound and atmosphere. The "Finnish Drape" will drive you away !
Coming from Canada, CROMLECH plays Heavy/Doom Metal, with an epic touch ! Founded in 2011, Cromlech is the antithesis to all that is trivial and banal in Heavy Metal. Thunderous drumming, extended dual guitar melodies, and songcrafting on a truly epic scale sets Cromlech apart in a genre plagued by generic rock clichés and fashion conscious trendsters. We are glad to release their MCD "IRON GUARD" on digipack format, limited to 300 copies !
NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS SVARTELDER  DEBUT A TRACK AND REVEAL DETAILS OF SOPHOMORE FULL-LENGTH ALBUM :
Norwegian Black Metallers SVARTELDER have today revealed details of their second full-length album "Pits" which is set for release on Dusktone in January 2019.
Founder and frontman Doedsadmiral (NORDJEVEL, DOEDSVANGR, ENEPSIGOS) shared some information about the album:
"Despite there being a theme running through the lyrics of its seven tracks,  "Pits" is not a concept album.  Nor was it ever our intention to make it one. It  is an album that explores ones deepest pain and misery.  That difficult battle to crawl out of the pit of despair and back to the world, only to find that the world has deteriorated into something lifeless and miserable. So much so, in fact, that you just want to let go and once again fall back into your pit .
"With our previous releases, the debut full-length "Pyres" and the "Askbundet" EP, we felt that SVARTELDER was still finding itself, and with "Pits" we have pushed ourselves even further musically.  As an album "Pits" is more, aggressive and more melancholic than its predecessors.  In fact, you could say that "Pits" is more of all that makes SVARTELDER what it is".
To give fans a taste of what they can expect from "Pits", SVARTELDER have debuted a track from the album, which can be heard on  YouTube at 
 https://youtu.be/w9oyjXDQDdc
"Pits" was mixed and mastered by Patric at the WSL Studios in France,  whilst much of the recording itself was done in the individual studios of band members Doedsadmiral on vocals,  Tjalve on bass and guitars, Renton on synth and Spektre on drums.

Earlier this year, ROGGA JOHANSSON (the band) revealed an exclusive song from their upcoming album titled 'ENTRANCE TO THE OTHERWHERE' via the label sampler HERE. Slated for release in early 2019 via Transcending Obscurity, here is the album cover that's painted by acclaimed Polish artist Mariusz Lewandowski
Rogga Johansson (also in Paganizer, Revolting, Down Among The Dead Men, Echelon) had this to say about it -
"When Kunal at Transcending Obscurity showed me the art piece I just knew it was the right one. I've never used something so epic to visualize my music before. It's a real dream piece. 
As for the album's music, I've delved further into contrasting epic, soaring melodies with the trademark Swedish death metal heaviness. And the story based on local folklore continues lyrically. It's a journey deep into the otherwhere. And I'm very happy with how it all has come together."
The logo has been newly created by
Christophe Szpajdel, popularly known as the 'Lord of the Logos'. 
A larger sized version of the artwork has been posted on the official Rogga Johansson page

Seven years after the release of the acclaimed second album, Fuimus, non Sumus..., Russian funeral doom trio Comatose Vigil returns with the awaited third album, Evangelium Nihil. The band had been in slumber since 2016. A.K. iEzor has reawaken the band under the name Comatose Vigil A.K. with the help of David Unsaved of Ennui and John Devos of Mesmur.
COMATOSE VIGIL AK – “ EVANGELIUM NIHIL “
Genre:
Funeral Doom
Location: Russia/Georgia/USA
FFO: Ea, Esoteric, Abstract Spirit, Tyranny, Shape of Despair, Evoken, etc.
Formed in 2011 in Moscow by A.K. iEzor (vocals, drums), Vig'ill (guitars) and Zigr (keyboards), COMATOSE VIGIL originally started their voyage under the name “Subhuman Abstract”. After spending the next two years in the throes of creation and experiments, they found their dole in the realm of funeral doom metal. Soon, the name was changed to Comatose Vigil and that eclipsed the further headway on artistic potency.
In between 2005 and 2006, a series of important incidents took place — the debut album “Not a Gleam of Hope”, the EP “Narcosis”, and the first live show. A streak of bad luck had soon begun when the new members joined the collective and the occurrence of countless line-up changes  caused inner issues and almost stopped the progress of composition. The only way to save the situation was to get back to original line-up, and then Comatose Vigil finally started recording their second LP. 2011 was marked by the release of a new album, titled “Fuimus, non Sumus…”. Unfortunately, it could not keep the band from breaking up. Comatose Vigil disbanded in 2013 for the first time because of internal discord. An attempt of reanimating the band was also a losing battle. Resurrected Comatose Vigil played two local live gigs in 2015 and then broke up again for the same reasons.
A.K. iEzor was trying hard to find a solution which could give this band a new birth. And he made his own luck. Comatose Vigil raised from the dead as Comatose Vigil A.K. It was possible due to involvement of David Unsaved of Ennui and his passion for the previous albums. Now he is in charge of composing all the materials. Subscript “A.K.” appeared because of some issues with one of ex-members, who spoke against using this title by anyone. The new line-up was also enhanced by John Devos of Mesmur in the capacity of a drummer.  
The new album was recorded in winter-spring of 2018 and called “Evangelium Nihil”. Retaining the recognizable hallmark, the band made the album in accordance with the previous works. The sound has become heavier and slower, and it portends the pressure of conjuring ominous bleakness. The ponderous slow-tempo riffs, backed by deep growls and spectral synths, descent into the abyssal depths of a frozen world where one won’t find a gleam of hope. Cover artwork created by high skilled W. Smerdulak.
“Evangelium Nihil” will see its worldwide release this December 14 via NON SERVIAM RECORDS digitally and on CD (digipak).

Sentient Ruin is honored and proud to announce the imminent release of CLAVICVLA's debut album SERMONS, an aural and sensorially devastating experience like nothing else. A masterpiece of infernal aural terror which expands the mind - stretching it to its inevitable death and dissolution - and which paralyses the flesh.
Italian one-man dark ambient/death industrial demon Clavicvla seamlessly blends the obsidian immensity of Lustmord and the wretched mantras of Trepaneringsritualen and Nordvargr to unleash forty minutes of dismal and infernal atmospherics, drowning the listener into a formless and hallucinatory sonic void of utter dread and of unparalleled darkness. With inhuman and monstrous sub-bass frequencies, diabolical atmospheres, and black hole-sized drones, throughout these five tracks the listener will be transported to an otherwordly and remote realm lost somewhere at the edge of existence, where the boundaries between nightmare and reality begin to blur and dissolve, revealing a world beyond of absolutely omnipotent and boundless demonic enormity. 
Indy Metal Vault has premiered the track "μισανθρωπία και διαστροφή" (“Misanthropy and Perversion”) with their writer calling Sermons “one of the most genuinely unsettling albums I’ve ever heard”. You can check out their feature
HERE. 
Shortly after Invisible Oranges premiered the diabolical cut Ma stating that “on his upcoming full-length Sermons, Clavicvla aims at channelling abstract (and, to these ears, abject) horror. This isn’t Lovecraft’s cosmic horror; what awaits listeners on Sermons isn’t tentacles and psychological torment, but something entirely unknowable and altogether more frightening.” You can read their feature and hear the track

RELEASE INFO & PREORDER 
BUCKSHOT FACELIFT -  “ULCER ISLAND”
LABEL: PARAGON RECORDS
RELEASE DATE: 12 November 2018
GENRE: Grindcore
FOR FANS OF: Brutal Truth | Fuck The Facts | Napalm Death | Pig Destroyer
Ulcer Island is a bitter, windswept place; a desolate, decaying jumble of rocks, hidden in the sea mists. It's all too easy to find if your footsteps through life lead you down the wrong paths and it's all too easy to forget the way home once you're there. It's where Fergus dreams of frost collecting on corpses and Sundress Skeletor tempts the lost with her toothless mouth and bleeding eyes. Let Buckshot Facelift take you across the water to this place of madness and despair. Become part of the story of this island asylum, breathe in the rot, walk through the filth and human detritus...just don't miss the last boat back to shore.
Formed in Huntington, New York in 2004 Buckshot Facelift have dedicated themselves to setting the horror of the human condition to the sound of the most extreme and eclectic grindcore imaginable. This band knows no limits musically or lyrically. Their musical creativity recognises no boundaries and there is no dark place their distorted imaginations won't explore. Since the savage bombardment of their debut album, Universal Goat Tilt, this lunatic collective have only become more twisted in thought and sound. With Ulcer Island, the band's fourth full length release, everything has coalesced into one beautifully warped sonic sculpture. An ambitious concept album that explores a place of horror and bleak brutality to 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.
Originally released in early 2017, with beautifully bleak artwork by Travis Smith (Nevermore, Opeth, Overkill etc), Ulcer Island left the minds of those that heard it in tatters, but Paragon Records have decided that the body count was too low. They are offering another batch of tickets to the island, more holidays in hell for those with a secret addiction to the basest forms of human desire. So climb aboard, the boat for Ulcer Island is leaving soon and there's room for just one more...

SHRIKE – “ ZEITGEIST – GEISTZEIT”
Genre: Black Metal
„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).

Vor der Veröffentlichung von WARDRUNAs Akustikalbum "SKALD" hat sich Einar Selvik mit dem finnischen Unternehmen Koski Syvari unter der Leitung von Tuukka Koski, und einem Rudel Wölfe, zusammengetan, der einen schönen Film zu seiner skaldischen Darstellung des altnordischen Gedichts "Voluspá" (Prophezeiung einer Seherin) kreiert hat.
Die Dreharbeiten fanden in Finnland statt, wo Einar mehrere Tage intensiv mit den Wölfen und ihren Betreuern trainierte, um sich auf die Dreharbeiten vorzubereiten.
Hier könnt ihr den Clip sehen:
https://youtu.be/8UPUPDo20nM
Einar Selvik kommentiert:
"My respect for the craft behind this grand old poem is profound, so the task of making visuals for it was not taken lightly. After Tuukka and his team’s outstanding work on our previous video for "Raido", it was a natural choice to work with them again. The film itself ended up with a production of over thirty people, and I am deeply humbled by the effort everyone put into it, and mighty proud of the result! On a more personal note I have to say that having the privilege to interact so closely with the wolves featured in the video, is something I will carry with me for the rest of my life."
 Tuukka Koski kommentiert:
"It was a great journey to collaborate on this new video for Wardruna. Knowing that Einar doesn’t settle for little and seeing him this happy makes me proud of myself as well."
"Skald" erscheint am 23.11. auf By Norse. Es ist das vierte Album der Band, die 2003 von Einar Selvik gegründet wurde.

Inferitvm wurde zwischen Wäldern und Überresten alter Zivilisationen als atypische Band im Herzen der sonnigen und warmen Insel Mallorca geboren. Im Jahr 2014 zeigen sie, dass die Dunkelheit an unerwarteten Orten geboren werden kann.

Sorcerer V. mit seiner erkennbaren gebrochenen Stimme und seiner avantgardistischen Art, die Gitarre zu begreifen, Bärgs organische Schlagzeuger voll wütender "Blastbeasts", der verheerende Bass von Aghanazzar und Lord Insekktons feurigen "Riffs" bilden eine kommende Horde die dazu bestimmt ist, Ihre Nächte mit ihrer neuen Welle von bösartigem Heavy Metal zu stören.

Hi – Chris and Paul here from Imperative PR . We have recently sent out MASS INFECTION's upcoming SHADOWS BECAME FLESH album to you all - and today have received a message from the band regarding the public playing of tracks from the album. From today onwards could we request that you only play list or stream the track 'To The Lords Of Revulsion', which the band have released as a lyric video. For the time being they would like to keep all other tracks under wraps.
'To The Lords Of Revulsion' can be found on Soundcloud here:-

Hey everyone, today we can present you the upcoming albums from OBSCENITY and DEADBORN.
OBSCENITY – “ SUMMONING THE CIRCLE “
Since their latest album „Retaliation“, Obscenity went through many changes. The most obvious being the additions of their new vocalist Manuel Siewert (December Flower) and their new bass axe man David Speckmann (Burial Vault). Both are now presenting their recording-debuts with Obscenity on “Summoning The Circle”, accompanied by the band’s veterans Hendrik Bruns (guitar) and Sascha Knust (drums) as well as guitarist Christoph Weerts. The recordings for the new songs took place at the Soundlodge Studio (Anvil, God Dethroned, Dew-Scented) with longtime-partner Joerg Uken and in guitarist Christoph Weerts’ own studio while mixing and mastering were done by Christoph Brandes in his Iguana Studio (Necrophagist, Spheron, Maladie). The result speaks for itself and delivers punchy and brutal classic death metal at its meanest. This is the perfect start into 2019, which marks the band’s 30th year in history!
DEADBORN – “ DOGMA ANTI GOD “
Six years have passed since “Mayhem Maniac Machine” was released, but the sounds of the shots fired out of this very effective, technical death metal weapon are still reverberating in the ear. Now, the Southern Germans prepare their next gunfire: “Dogma Anti God”. The band recorded the nine tracks together with producer Kristian „Kohle“ Kohlmannslehner (Aborted, Benighted) in his Kohlekeller Studio and created an album that is musically more open than its predecessor without losing DEADBORN’s uniqueness and recognition value. This dogma is irrevocable!
On December 7th, 2018 “Dogma Anti God” will be released via Apostasy Records.
Line-Up 2018:
Mario Petrovic – Vocals (ex-Necrophagist)
Kevin Olasz - Lead/ Rhythm Guitar (ex-Jack Slater / Aardvarks)
Slawek Foltyn – Drums (ex-Necrophagist)
Jo Morath - Rhythm Guitar
Giulio Rimoli - Bass
Best wishes, Tomasz

"Italy’s favorite sons Double Me! are back and more pissed than ever as they offer us seventeen tracks of distorted bass and drum insanity. You may not know Double Me per se, but there’s solid chance you’ve heard, purchased, or seen many releases from vocalist Mirco Desolie’s label Here And Now Records. If you hate music with guitars and love sonic punishment, then please, get destroyed in a second by Italian grinders DOUBLE ME! There is nothing to deconstruct here – this is pure, unfiltered power violence in its most primitive state. To review or critique this would be inappropriate and uncalled for. Faux punks step to the side; first wave power violence junkies, this one is for you!!!"

ROTTEN EVISCERATION – “ ANCIENT GRAVE ASCENSION “
Country: Perú
Genre: Death Metal
Label: Guts´n´Blood/Blood Spattered/Clabasster Records
Release date: November 1st, 2018
ROTTEN EVISCERATION, Putrefying Death Metal band from Perú and BLOOD SPATTERED AXE Records, in conjunction with GUTS´N´BLOOD Records and Clabasster Records are proud to announce the release of "Ancient Grave Ascension" debut full length of the band with strong shades of classic death metal.
Released on a three-panel digipak format, with exclusive artwork done by Indonesian artist Raymond Art (Stigmatuary, Decomposed, Bloodshed, Neoplassis, Swarm Of Serpents, Slaves Of Suffering…)
Featuring a raw death metal sound resulting from the mix of technique, brutality and harsh guitar solos, their concept album and lyrics are focused on telling horror stories and necrophilic fantasies with the undead. It is similar to a horror movie that instead of using images we do it through our powerful and insane guitar riffs attached to crushing drums.
"Ancient Grave Ascension" was recorded, mixed and mastered at Solar Empire Studio by Aquiles "Solar Empire”, Pueblo Libre – Lima, 2018.

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.

OMEGAVORTEX - "PROMO 2018"
Release date: 13-07-2018
Genre: Black/Death Metal
Label: Self-Release
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.
Line-up:
R. Vocals/Guitars
P. Guitars
B. Drums (Session)
X. Bass

Second act of our collaboration with the CHRIST AGONY band ends up with a remake of the DARKSIDE album. Originally released in 1997 the album caused quite a commotion revealing a different face of the band. Black Metal got combined here with a big deal of electronics and dark ambient. It does not influence reception of the music itself it still takes you to its dark and mystic domain. This time the album has been released with an extra CD titled Darkness which among the others consists of unpublished recordings from the recording session. Nine additional songs which partly got rerecorded, reconstructed and recovered from old works. It all makes 50 extra minutes which enrich and enhance dark aura of the album. Released in a standard box, two golden CDs, all the copies numbered manually.
Release date: 10.11.2018

Release date: 2018-09-21
Genre: Industrial-Metal
Label: Echozone / Les disques Rubicon
Distribution: BOB-MEDIA (EU), Rock Inc. (Benelux)
In 2017, PORN released their third album “The Ogre Inside.- Act I”, the first act of a trilogy based on the enigmatic character Mr. Strangler. In September 2018, the French gothic metal / industrial rock band returns with a remix album of this opus.
“The Ogre Inside” is an album about inner struggle and deals with dark desires and how society can opresses you in your will. This is a fight no one can win; the Ogre that devours you from the inside always wins. This album is an invocation, a way to release the Ogre, to embrace your “true” self and let your darkest desires express themselves. It is an incitement to act.
An Erotic End Of Times, Heartlay, Thot and Aura Shred put their talent to work by remixing songs from “The Ogre Inside”. From the dark ambiances of An Erotic End Of Times to the danceable rhythm of Aura Shred, these great bands contributes to release the Ogre.
The story continues and PORN will release Act II of this trilogy in a few months. This new album is ready to be delivered, and you will learn more about Mr. Strangler and his morbid crew very soon …! For Mr. Strangler and his crew, the Ogre inside is released; let the slaughter begin …
PORN will be touring Europe this fall together with Lord Of The Lost, Mystigma, Florian Grey, Dynastie and Burn …

Finnish psych-occult-folk artist ITERUM NATA has released a second single from their upcoming second full length album to be released in December 2018.
"SACRIFICIAL LIGHT" is an ambitious composition featuring Anna-Kaisa Kettunen (The Aeon) on lead vocals and Kimmo Helén (Hexvessel) on violin and viola.

Spotify  https://spoti.fi/2PFWY67
Deezer  https://www.deezer.com/sv/album/77371242
Jesse Heikkinen from Iterum Nata comments on the new single:
"Sacrificial Light is a song with many faces. Originally it was written in Finnish few years ago when I was going through some hard times. The song fitted this album perfectly, so I re-wrote the lyrics in English.
The stunningly beautiful lead vocals are sung by Anna-Kaisa. She is one of my favourite singers and I’m so thankful she agreed to help me. The dramatic string ensemble is made by Kimmo, who is an unbelievable talented multi-instrumentalist and dear brother from the Hexvessel family.
The lyrics are quite complex and there are many stories behind this song. In the verses the narrator wants something so bad, that (s)he is willing to sacrifice him/herself. In this context the sacrifice can be understood as simply committing a suicide – the  ultimate self-sacrifice, or as a symbolic gesture where the initiate lets all that is untrue go."
Portuguese symphonic death metal act DALLIAN will see its masterpiece debut released on November 9th via Nox Liberatio Records, in a limited quantity edition!
From the alchemical merging of “Metal” music and the aesthetics of “Steampunk”, an unlikely synthesis is born , giving rise to “Dallian”, a band hoping to fill a void in a still very underexplored fusion.
Expect the unexpected as Dallian drags you in the depths of your mind, with its twisted arrangements. From guttural to clean singing, from crushing riffs to melodic guitar leads, from the peacefulness of traditional Portuguese fado music to the chaotic frenzy of orchestral madness.
Rising in 2017 from the center of Portugal, in the small city of Leiria, Dallian is a band with roots on a solid background of Death Metal with added virtuosity of symphonic elements, all arranged in progressive dynamics.
For fans of
 SepticFlesh, Carach Angren, Dimmu Borgir, and other open minded metal entities.

ECTHIRION - "PSALMS OF THE RISEN DEAD"
Release date: 07-12-2018
Genre: Symphonic/Progressive/Extreme Metal
Label: Soundmass
For fans of : epic symphonic, prog, extreme, power metal - Kamelot, Symphony X, Nightwish and Dimmu Borgir.
Line-up:
Gabriel A. Neale
Hannah Neale (+ guest musicians)
Formed in 2008 and releasing their debut EP in 2009, Ecthirion have been slowly and meticulously working on their follow-up ever since. December 2018 sees the culmination of this work in the release of the UK band’s full-length album “Psalms of the Risen Dead”.
An orchestral metal band with a broad range of influences and contrasts, Ecthirion’s aim has always been to create unique and thought-provoking compositions, both musically and lyrically. You will hear elements of power metal, death metal and even tech death, with Eastern and folk influences bringing variety. Also very much inspired by nature, some songs are reflective of raging torrents, while others are brooding and serene.
An array of people contributed to the project - 6 vocalists and several classical musicians who help to create an authentic neoclassical sound. The album features belting vocal performances from Celso Alves (Allos) and Eugen Dodenhoeft (Far Beyond), as well as David Cooney’s (Jorvik) intense screams contrasting with emotive female vocals. With riffy guitars and intense drumming, “Psalms of the Risen Dead” is a spiritual journey for every listener to embark on, with lyrical themes of personal struggle, death, conquering sin and the brevity of life. The accompanying 16-page booklet illustrates this opulent metal musical, ending with death and what comes after.

MULE SKINNER: veteran underground death/grind warriors present their crushing second album "AIRSTRIKE"!
"'Airstrike' showed that Mule Skinner hadn't lost the fire and aggression that made their early albums great, and the band today are driven by the same excitement and desire to play extreme music that got them started in 1990".  Decibel Magazine
"'Abuse' is a criminally underrated '90s gem and 'Airstrike' marks a long gestating but high quality sequel that should be closely checked by aficionados of death, grind, and top notch extreme metal in general".
Angry Metal Guy
"Without resorting to pure death metal or sludge metal yet touching upon both for those moments, Mule Skinner create a raw and uncompromising listening experience that is undeniably effective". Grizzly Butts
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.

After 2 split 7" singles on Bestial Invasion Records, old-school black metal outfit DUNGEÖNHAMMER rises again from the French/Dutch underground to present its debut album, "INFERNAL MOON". With 8 tracks of blistering and repulsive black metal, Infernal Moon is bubbeling with the purulence and decay of the classic bands from days past.
The band comments on the album: "This album is the kind of album you need to hear nowadays, it's not about trend or anything. It's an "in your face"/direct approach. We want to make black metal the way it used to be: simple, raw and passionate."

Epic Power Metal Masters ARRAYAN PATH Return With 7th Album . Third album in three consecutive years out on Nov. 30th - drums by Mark Zonder
Epic Power Metal masters ARRAYAN PATH return with their 7th album, their third offering in three consecutive years! A follow-up to 2017’s highly acclaimed “Dawn of Aquarius” (album of the month in Greek Metal Hammer among countless other commendations), ARRAYAN PATH’s new album sees them reaching yet another milestone as it’s the band’s first double-disc album ever!
“ARCHEGONOI” (Greek for Ancient-Born) is a return to ARRAYAN PATH’s original sound; a sound clearly resulting from the band members’ passion for heavy metal music, their influences and life experiences in general. It’s also a result of that ancient spirit lurking about in their minds, guiding and directing the song-writing to a specific… path, one that the band members are more than pleased to follow.
The new album is somewhat of a concept album, not in the sense of a story being told from start to finish but one that derives its themes from the same “pool” of ancient-born ideas and influences related to the ancient world and more particularly to ancient Greece. Ancient Greece after all has always played an integral role in the band’s history.
With its 14 tracks and over 80 minutes of music, this is an album that’s as complete as it could possibly be and although the easy choice would be to simply “cut” one or two tracks in order to fit everything on one disc, it was strongly felt that nothing should be left out, which is why the decision to release it on two discs was reached. This way the “journey” on which the album will take the listener will be thoroughly enjoyed and experienced exactly as the band intended it. As the band comments: “This album will excite you to pick up a sword and switch to warrior mode but at the same time touch your more sensitive side while carrying you to those ancient times. THIS is the real spirit of ARRAYAN PATH!”
The album includes a long list of amazing musicians, friends of the band, participating as guests, but special mention should be made to the legendary Mark Zonder (WARLORD, FATES WARNING) whose unique drumming needs no special introduction. All drums on “ARCHEGONOI” are performed by Mark Zonder and of course his unmatched performance makes the entire album shine even more.
https://www.facebook.com/arrayanpath/
Released on November 30th, on Double-CD and Digital, “ARCHEGONOI” is now available for pre-order at http://pitchblackrecords.bandcamp.com & http://store.pitchblackrecords.com
A song taken off of the album is now streaming and offered as a free download along with the song’s corresponding lyric video at http://www.pitchblackrecords.com

FORNACE – “DEEP MELANCHOLIC WRATH”
LABEL: PARAGON RECORDS
RELEASE DATE: NOVEMBER 16th 2018
Genre: Black Metal
For fans of: Necrodeath | Leviathan | The Black | Darkthrone
Today there are too many bands who draw on the mantle of 'black metal' like a child's cloak from a box of fancy dress clothes. They spend as much time painting their faces and polishing their leather and spikes as immersed in their music; as much time clutching replica weapons as their guitars. When you come across a band for whom their music is everything the conviction and dedication radiates from each note, the passion is unmistakable.
Fornace are one such band, summoned into being by bassist Possessed and drummer/vocalist Gnoll back in 2000, their integrity undeniable. The two men were inspired to create by the early Greek gods, Rotting Christ and Varathron, the music they heard speaking to the music that lay dormant in their own hearts and souls. Three demo tapes were released over the next eight years - Highest Towers in 2002, The Man Who Wanted To Change The World in 2004 and The Awakening in 2008 - each one a testament to Possessed and Gnoll's original vision. However, after the release of The Awakening, Gnoll stepped down from his role with Fornace, leaving Possessed to carry the banner onwards with a new creative partner, guitarist Mastiff.
What remained was the unflinching dedication to music over image, music above everything. While different members have come and gone over the last decade, Possessed and Mastiff have carried the Fornace torch, maintaining the raw, impassioned sound of savage black metal, instilling it with the darkest emotions. The power of Fornace has grown with the release of the albums Pregnant Is The Night (AuToDafe/Paragon Records) and in 2014 My Journey Is Ending But The Torment Will Be Eternal (Paragon Records) and now their black flame is burning higher than ever before.
On November 16th Paragon Records invite you to experience Deep Melancholic Wrath, the third full length album from Fornace and the ultimate distillation of all that they have been on their journey through the endless night. These vast, wandering hymns of regret carry the rusted blades of raw black metal spite, but they're also torn asunder by the agonies of despair, their bones cracked by the howling icy winds of soul freezing loneliness. The melodies take unexpected turns, surprising as they bind you in chains of agony and beneath it all a black river of conflicted emotion thunders through caverns of utter emptiness. 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.
Beyond hope...beyond redemption...there is Fornace.

TOR MARROCK – “THE CONCEPT OF SELF”
LABEL: BLACK
VULTURE RECORDS
RELEASE DATE: DECEMBER 13th 2018
Genre: Dark Gothic Metal
For fans of: Moonspell | My Dying Bride | Monumentum
In the deep velvet shadows between the flames figures twist and entwine, dancing on the edge of perception, frightening but deeply alluring. There's a soft, sensual voice inviting you to step through the flames into the enticing wickedness beyond. Words of promise and ritual spiral through the night air, carried on silver threads of sound, music that speaks to something deep, primal and all but forgotten. The music offers a connection to truths you once knew, it promises passion beyond reason and an unveiling of secrets. Knowledge and lust, power and revelation, transcendence through pleasure...
The music that calls from beyond the flames is The Concept Of Self, the third collection of eldritch sorceries from the dark masters of Tor Marrock. These songs hypnotise you, set fire to your blood and draw you into their web as they take control of the beating of your heart. Then, like a serrated blade drawn from within a silken sheath, their cruel riffs begin to dissect you. Thrill to the whispered promises of guest vocalist Liv Free on '(Let's Make) Love In The Dark', feel the fear as you realise that the path home is long forgotten as 'The Dark In Your Eyes' draws you ever onward into the black. Finally emerge, bloodied and new born, forever changed, into 'The Concept Of Self' - the album's epic conclusion.
Tor Marrock descended from the mountains of west Wales in 2005, bringing with them their first demo, The Death Of Summer, a first glimpse into their world of desire driven witchery. Two albums followed; A Gothic Romance (2007) and Destroy The Soul (2013) - each a step further into the darkness. Now, as the nights draw in and winter looms once more, Black Vulture Records are ready to light the flames again and summon you all to The Concept Of Self. On December 13th the chanting will begin and Tor Marrock will call from beyond the flames. New pleasures await you in the shadows. Give in to your desires and join the dance once more...

KRUD – „KRUD „
ARROGANZ – „ ERZKETZER“ (MCD )
ASHES OF ARES (ft. ex Iced Earth's Matt Barlow) veröffentlichen ein brandneues Video zu ihrer zweiten Single "Let All Despair". Der Song stammt vom kommenden Album "WELL OF SOULS", das am 9.11. via Digipack CD, 2LP Black Vinyl & Limited 2LP Black/Turquoise Splatter Vinyl via ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records erscheint.
Schaut hier rein: https://youtu.be/GICCKVL3r_w
Sänger Matt Barlow kommentiert: "Let All Despair" is the first song in the "Well of Souls" Trilogy. It is the introduction into a world that is on the brink of destruction. This is a time in the life cycle of Mother Earth known as the Purging Time. At this point in Earth's history, the human race is infantile compared to other of Her surface dwelling life forms. The trilogy is the story of humanity's introduction to the revelations of The Mother's direct connection with all of the life that fall under her care. Also, the understanding that when She enters into dormancy, all life on Earth are vulnerable to outside forces in our universe, that consume all souls left unprotected.”

Inhaltlich thematisieren THWART Wut, Hass, Freiheit und Leidenschaft.
Der Debüt-Longplayer "Once Human" wird im Dezember veröffentlicht.

NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS RAGNAROK BEGIN WORK ON NINTH FULL-LENGTH ALBUM : Twenty five years after having been formed by iconic drummer Jontho, veteran Norwegian Black Metallers RAGNAROK have entered the studio to begin work on what will be the band's ninth full-length album.  The, as yet unnamed,  album is expected to be released during late May 2019 on Agonia Records.
Work on the album is progressing well, with drum tracks having already been laid and work on guitars having begun. As with RAGNAROK's last three albums, "Psychopathology" (2016), "Malediction" (2012) and "Collectors of the King" (2010),  the band has chosen to record in Sweden's Endarker Studio, with Devo (MARDUK) once again producing, because, as Jontho, who has now switched roles from drummer to frontman,  explained:
Why change something that works?  We know the studio so well by now and how good the facilities are, and,  after three albums,  Devo really understands what RAGNAROK wants and how we work.  He's a great producer and we're really looking forward to seeing what he does the new material.
RAGNAROK will head for Canada later this month to appear at the Messe des Morts Festival in Montreal, and have been confirmed to appear at next year's  legendary Inferno Metal Festival in Oslo, Norway, on the 19th April.
More information about RAGNAROK can be found on the band’s Facebook page at
http://www.facebook.com/ragnarokofficial  or on their  website at http://www.ragnarokhorde.com/
The official video for the title track  from  RAGNAROK's "Collectors of the King" can be seen at https://youtu.be/IdRPw1tPl5E

ENSLAVED X KRAKOW:  IVAR AND FRODE DISH THE DIRT ON EACH OTHER'S BANDS : Black avantgarde Norwegians ENSLAVED recently toured across Europe and the United Kingdom alongside co-headliners High On Fire and support band KRAKOW. 
We caught up with Ivar from Enslaved and Frode from KRAKOW at the bands' sold out London show to see how the tour has gone and to find out who is willing to dish the dirt on each other's bands. Find out what happened, here:
 youtu.be/OFmLmVBHjgY
Order ENSLAVED's latest album E here:  nuclearblast.com/enslaved-e
Order KRAKOW's latest album minus here:  https://www.karismarecords.no/artists/krakow/ 
Formed in Bergen, Norway, in 1991, Enslaved had evolutionary zeal in their eyes from the start. Even as they emerged from the nascent Norwegian black metal scene of the early ‘90s, guitarist Ivar Bjørnson and vocalist/bassist Grutle Kjellson demonstrated a fervently idiosyncratic approach to making extreme music. By eschewing the wilful conservatism of their peers in favour of an outward-looking ethos, Enslaved’s reputation grew rapidly in the wake of extraordinary, epic albums like their primitive but insidious debut Vikingligr Veldi and its strident follow-up Frost (both 1994).
By the late ‘90s, the band had morphed into a wildly progressive and adventurous beast, always retaining the core, aggressive tenets of their musical roots but increasingly in thrall to the limitless possibilities that music, in its entirety, truly presents. Widely acknowledged as a powerful and ferocious live band, Enslaved entered the 21stcentury by flexing new muscles on the acclaimed likes of 2003’s Below The Lights and its groundbreaking successor, Isa (2004). Now as much a part of the flourish progressive rock and metal realm as they were loyal servants of the extreme metal underground, Bergen’s finest hit a rich vein of form as the years passed, with albums as diverse and challenging as 2008’s Vertebrae and 2010’s Axioma Ethica Odini joyfully expanded the Enslaved musical universe, drawing in countless new acolytes along the way.
In 2015, Enslaved released their 13th studio album, In Times. A tour-de-force of hypnotic prog intensity and scabrous, blackened pomp, it exuded an air of completion and finality that led perfectly into 2016’s extravagant celebrations, as Enslaved marked their 25th anniversary with some truly life-changing shows that explored all shadows and hidden corners in the band’s colossal catalogue. In Times represented the end of an era and the opening of a gateway to somewhere entirely new.
Despite rarely pausing for breath – not just as a result of Enslaved’s hectic touring schedule, but also due to numerous extracurricular projects – Ivar and his comrades have somehow managed to piece together yet another full-length milestone in the shape of their 14th studio effort, the elegantly titled E. Written amid a burst of creativity, grabbed at the tail-end of the band’s 2016 US dates, the new album marks the majestic birth of a revitalised and newly inspired Enslaved. Against the logistical odds, a new dawn was coming.
An album full of revelatory moments, spine-tingling dynamics and exquisite but alien atmospheres, E showcases a refreshed Enslaved line-up via songs that take the band into unprecedented territory. From the grandiose, weather-beaten riff-scapes of 11-minute opener Storm Son to the wild, psychedelic frontier squall of Sacred Horse and the muscular, sax-powered shoegaze barrage of monstrous closerHiindsiight, it is both a typically bold and fearless statement from this most inventive of modern metal bands and a thrilling sideways step that harnesses the spirit of old and sets it loose in a whirlwind of imagination. Conceptually, too, Enslaved are making giant forward strides. While past albums frequently focused on notions of individuality and isolation, E offers a transformative fresh perspective.
14 albums and 26 years into a career that shows no signs of losing neither momentum nor its magical, effervescent creative sheen, Enslaved are once again evolving before our ears and eyes. This time, however, even the sky is no limit. Stronger than ever and manifestly thrilled to be in such rude health, Ivar avows that life in Enslaved has never been more rewarding. And the best is yet to come.
KRAKOW was formed in Bergen, Norway in the fall of of 2005. The post metal collective received much praise and recognition for their special take on the genre with their second album diin, which was voted the 3rd best metal album of the year by Metal Hammer Norway in 2012.
Their third album, amaran, saw the band develop their style even further. The band made a unique and atmospheric record that stands out against its competition. With this album, the band explored both the calmer side of their sound, as well as the more experimental and drone aspects. This makes amaran a highly varied album, filled with both dreamy soundscapes and sinister, harsh atmospheres.
Following the laborious process of distilling two albums worth of material into one focused gem, the band then created their latest offering, minus. The pinnacle achievement of KRAKOW’s thirteen-year existence. After a year of recording, shaping, re-recording and refining, minus has been reduced to the bare essence of who KRAKOW are as individuals, as a group and as story tellers.  It's an album that 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 where no light can escape.
With themes spanning from outer space to the hidden worlds deep below, travelling in time from the distant future to the near past like an inverted space odyssey, we are taken on a journey where “we all become stories”, in ways as much a reflection of the ones we tell, as a revelation of the ones we won’t.
Mediterranean death metallers COFFIN BIRTH will release their debut album "THE SERPENT INSIGNIA" on all formats (LP, CD, MC, digital) via Narcotica/Time To Kill Records on November 30, 2018. 
The band premiered the "Red Sky Season" lyric video at No Clean Singing
HERE and the debut single “The 13th Apostle” via Decibel Magazine.
Tracklist:
01. Throne of Skulls
02. The 13th Apostle
03. Godless Wasteland
04. Red Sky Season
05. Christ infection Jesus Disease
06. From the Dead to the Dead
07. Casket Ritual
08. Sanguinary
09. The Serpent Insignia
10. Zombie Anarchy
“The Serpent Insignia“ is adorned with a striking cover artwork by Roberto Toderico (ASPHYX, PESTILENCE, SINISTER).
COFFIN BIRTH is the result of a collaboration between some of the finest musicians from the Italian and Maltese extreme metal scenes, namely Giulio Moschini (HOUR OF PENANCE), Marco Mastrobuono (HOUR OF PENANCE, BUFFALO GRILLZ), Francesco Paoli (FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, ex-HOUR OF PENANCE), Davide Billia (HOUR OF PENANCE, BEHEADED), Frank Calleja (BEHEADED).
Giulio comments:
"One day Marco and myself started experimenting with the legendary HM2 pedal from the 80's in an attempt to add some new flavours to the Hour of Penance sound but it turned out that we simply could not incorporate its sound into the music because of the tremendous amount of gain and noise that this small pedal produces. However, since we are both huge fans of that exceptional, vintage yet brutal tone we started writing music on the side. Unknowingly and in a short time we ended up with 10 kick ass songs ready to be recorded. It was at this point that we decided to turn this into a proper band and went on to give a call to some friends with whom we've travelled and toured throughout the years. This was the right occasion to make some kick ass music together!
The first person we called was our close friend Francesco Paoli (Fleshgod Apocalypse), who also was part of the Hour of Penance line-up from 2006 to 2010. Shortly after we contacted Davide Billia and Frank Calleja from Maltese deathmongers Beheaded to complete the Coffin Birth line-up, which we are extremely happy with".
The band is now ready to release "The Serpent Insignia", its maggot filled first full length album and unleash an assault of vermin infested live shows in a filthy concotion of old school death metal, rock'n'roll and punk. From the dead to the dead.
Watch for additional information, audio previews and pre-order details as well as COFFIN BIRTH live actions and more over the weeks ahead.

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.

Listen to the remastered version of "From Sand to Dust"  youtu.be/jbkuKIrViIc
On The Essence of Time Matches No Flesh, MADROST found its definitive sound, one that is much more dynamic and darker than previous album Into the Aquatic Sector. The  album picks up where Into the Aquatic Sector left off and takes the sound to a whole new, previously unexplored level. Vocalist/guitarist Tanner Poppitt comments: "I wanted a broader scope to work with and have the listener think about what they are listening to." Last but certainly not least, Tony Koehl's (The Black Dahlia Murder, Putrid Pile, Malignancy, etc) cover art also represents a huge step forward for the band, as his artistic interpretations tie everything together into a cohesive whole.

Hailing from Denver, Colorado, the trio that call themselves INOCULATED LIFE have been around for just over a year now with a self-released demo under their belt entitled, IN HOPE OF ETERNAL LIFE. The band quickly sold out of their cassette demo, but word continued to spread about this powerhouse from the West. The band's music is a mix of Death Metal, Grind, and Powerviolence that, upon first listen, is in-your-face and undeniable. Their self-proclaimed battle cry has been "Fuck the police - Fuck the judicial system - Fuck the industrial meat and dairy industry," and they continue with that theme on their newest offering, Exist to Decay. It's hard to imagine the wall of sound eminating from the speakers is coming from just 3 musicians...the pure unadulterated rage this triad spews is very REAL.
While some may be quick to judge from the obvious HM2 influence, the more you listen, the more you realize that these gentleman are on to something here. INOCULATED LIFE are bringing groove into Death Metal - just enough at just the right moments - and I LOVE it!! You can dismiss any "core" reference immediately as these grooves are meant to crumble cities - you will find nothing but violence, hate, pity, and fear within. I hope you are ready....

For fans of  Death, Carcass and At The Gates.

Sad Theory is a Death Metal band from Brazil. It started its activities in 1998 and has released six studio albums: The Lady & The Torch (2002), A Madrigal of Sorrow (2004), Biomechanical (2006), Descrítica Patológica (2012), Vérmina Audioclastia Póstuma (2015) and the latest one, Entropia Humana Final. Since its fourth release, their lyrics, originally in English, started being written entirely in their native Portuguese, with lyrical themes including poetry, madness, disease, introspection, death, genocide and war. Their sound can be described as technical and melodic, with a wide range of influences. 
Musically, "Entropia Humana Final" is the band's most technical release to date. With a diverse musical structure, it also features loads of guitar solos, which were mostly absent in the previous record. Production-wise it is more polished and mid-range, despite being recorded in the same place as “Vérmina Audioclastia Póstuma” (Funds House Studios). Lyrically, the band's approach is more political, where the band takes real historical events related to war, totalitarianism, genocides and famine, as basis for most lyrics.

San Jose, CA's one-man OSDM band RIPPED TO SHREDS are proud to announce today's release of the limited edition vinyl LP version of debut album MAI-ZANG ON NIGHT RHYTHMS. Explosive and earnest Death Metal with old school with Swedeath/grind tones and accursed mania, the vinyl LP is limited to 150 copies (50 "bone" / 100 black) with screen printed, hand-numbered jacket and double-sided 11x11 insert.
Purchase the Mai-zang Vinyl LP  store.nghtrhthms.com/product/ripped-to-shreds-lp
Featuring extreme multi-tasker Andrew Lee (ex-DISINCARNATION), Mai-zang was previously released through Malaysia's Necrolatry Records (cassette) and Mexico's Craneo Negro Records (CD). The album is also available for purchase and high volume streaming through rippedtoshredsdeathmetal.bandcamp.com/.
Reamping/mixing/mastering on Mai-zang was handled by Damian Herring (HORRENDOUS) at Subterranean Watchtower Studios. Album artwork was created by Skaðvaldur. 
Mai-zang means 'burial' or 'tomb', is a reflection of the turmoil, strife, and chaos of late 19th to early 20th century China as she dealt with multiple internal uprisings and foreign invasions. From the religious purges of the Taiping Rebellion to the mass famine in the wake of the Yellow River flood, each track presents a harrowing vignette of death and horror.
The song "Jiangu," which was performed in Mandarin, informs the themes in the cover art and tone of the album. Taiwanese people are traditionally buried sans embalming to let the flesh naturally rot away. They are exhumed years later to remove and clean the bones, which are placed in a funerary urn, and that urn then reinterred. This practice is called jiangu or "picking up bones." Andrew's great-grandparents were buried in this manner, but in the last 20 years population growth and space concerns prevent full coffin burial so people are cremated instead. Jiangu in the modern context refers to transferring the bone fragments left from cremation into the funerary urn. Worship of those remains is culturally important; what if during the cremation process a mistake was made and the family was handed the wrong person's ashes and bones? "Bone Ritual" then depicts the deceased's impotence in bringing good luck to his descendants as they pay false obeisances to the remains of a stranger.
The cover art shows a traditional grave; for Han Chinese, sweeping the grave is an important annual ritual, so leaving a grave to rot as drawn is an act of supreme disrespect to one's forebears.
RIYL: Entombed, Bolt Thrower, Terrorizer, Horrendous, Witch Vomit.
BIO:  RIPPED TO SHREDS began as a collaboration between Andrew Lee on all instruments and BW of Draghkar on vocals in early 2016 to merge Bolt Thrower and Entombed in a crushing soundtrack to tales of China's turbulent history. Early sketches of Yellow River were written in this period, but the project was put on hold with the formation of Disincarnation. After recording and releasing a demo with them, Andrew grew dissatisfied with the direction of the band and resolved to fulfill his vision of violence alone...

FORNACE [ITALY]- DEEP MELANCHOLIC WRATH on CD.
BlackMetal. Fornace have returned with their 3rd full length & 3rd release on Paragon Records! Promising to be even more stripped down than before, this is a band truly inspired by the riff aiming to take the listener on a journey into their brand of Black Metal abyss. Once again founding member Possessed lays down detailed bass work and puts his vocals more into the background mix to create a more distancing depth to their creation. The drumming on Deep Melancholic Wrath fits to the album titles claim and is diverse everywhere it needs to be. Fornace are raw, organic and truly have their own style & vision.
RELEASE DATE NOVEMBER 16TH!!!
GHOST TOWER[USA] - HEAD OF NIGHTon CD .
Heavy/Doom/Thrash/NWOBHM. Originally  released back in 2012 on CDR by the band and on Cassette by MetalPunkRex exclusively. Head Of Night is finally being released on official CD with 3 bonus tracks! This is a band whose career was far too short as far as we are concerned!!!
Excellent riffs, haunting original vocals, raw but very dynamic drumming, & a truly unique approach to their craft. With titles such as Ninth Tooth of the Gravekeeper's Grin, Secret of Black Moss Lake, The Brooding Silence... & ...of Untimely Death you can imagine the dark epic atmosphere the band has created.  These songs are carefully constructed and are meant to be catchy & emotional, with some very nice lead guitar work. 
We really can't compare them to anybody we have heard but some comparisons have been made to Witchfinder General,Twisted Tower Dire and the atmospheric evoking of the mighty Mercyful Fate! SO, IF YOU ARE looking for something a little different with the true spirit of Metal look no further than Ghost Tower! Featuring an ex-member of Borrowed Time ( Highroller Records) / The Swill (Ft. members from Harbinger, Solace, Wastelander, Trouble.) 
BUCKSHOT FACELIFT [USA]  - ULCER ISLAND CD DeathMetal/Grindcore!!!
One of Long Island NY'S best kept secrets and one ofit's most extreme! Collaborating a release with Paragon Records for the first time after a long time camaraderie!
Following up their brilliant self-released 2014 EP "Living Ghosts Of The North Shore" (one of our favorite releases of that year), Buckshot Facelift strike even harder with their fourth full length!!! Featuring guest vocals by King Fowley of Deceased/October 31!!! Another proud moment for P.R. to be working with a great band that has been honing their craft for over 14 years while setting a perfect example that there is fresh blood on Long Island with BSFL being one of the forerunners!!!
This a concept album- the first that sees the band taking their style of music to a further realm of maturity, originality & extremity. To attempt to describe the new material simply, you could say it's Grindcore and maybe it fits with the band's earlier material BUT, that would be a short sighted inaccuracy as the band has evolved over more than a decade into a style that they have created all their own.
Expect Hardcore, Power Violence, Death Metal, Black Metal, Grindcore, acoustic/instrumental, samples, atmospheric moments & more that when all said & done, comprise the unique styling of Buckshot Facelift!!! Featuring members of Artificial Brain, Thaetas, & Grey Skies Fallen!!! DO NOT MISS OUT ON THE BAND TOO EXTREME FOR THE METAL ARCHIVES!!!! OUT NOW WITH LIMITED QUANTITY REMAINING!!!

Boston-based progressive death metallers ZEALOTRY have premiered a new track from forthcoming album AT THE NEXUS OF ALL STILLBORN WORDS, courtesy of Decibel Magazine .
Stream "Primus Venatoris"   decibelmagazine.com/2018/10/29/track-premiere-zealotry-primus-venatoris/
Two years after their last full-length, ZEALOTRY are back with their newest offering (and first with Unspeakable Axe Records), titled At the Nexus of All Stillborn Worlds. The album will be released on December 7. Pre-order the album on compact disc and cassette.
A promo video for the album's title track is available at  youtu.be/MB0AVpKcA4I
This is progressive death metal at its most uncompromising; dense with intricate riffs, elaborate bass lines, mind-melting lead guitar work and more. Clean choral vocals add a Timeghoul-ish aspect to certain songs; in other places, bewildering effects occasionally will warp a track into an aural acid trip. Elaborate structures occasionally peel back to reveal a Chasm-inspired melodic development.
Featuring a member of Chthe'ilist and influenced by a broad palette of death metal explorers including At the Gates, Obliveon, Brutality, and Atheist, At the Nexus of Stillborn Worlds is a dizzying new peak in ZEALOTRY's 13-year history. Experience eight tracks and nearly 43 minutes of some of the most dense and rewarding music death metal has to offer, on CD, cassette and digital platforms from Unspeakable Axe Records. Look for pre-orders to be available next week.

DARK ESSENCE RECORDS SIGNS SUPERLYNX TO ITS ROSTER .  Dark Essence Records have inked a deal with the Norwegian doom/psych trio SUPERLYNX and are set to release what will be the band's sophomore full-length album in the early part of 2019.
If you were to ask SUPERLYNX  about musical influences their answer would be something pretty much along the lines of “the sum of all the different music we all listen to and are inspired by”,  as opposed to specific bands . Doom, stoner rock, drone, psych, shoegaze, metal, old blues, jazz and classic rock all play a part in inspiring SUPERLYNX, whose members have a lot of music in common, but also their own, individual, musical influences, which they bring to the table.  SUPERLYNX follows no rules other than what sounds awesome and feels right.
Formed in 2013 by drummer Ole Teigen and bassist/vocalist Pia Isaksen, it had always been SUPERLYNX's intention to remain a duo, but a meeting with guitarist Daniel Bakken, coupled with his performance during rehearsals, changed all that.  It was clear that he belonged in the band and SUPERLYNX became a fully-fledgeda trio.
Teigen (drums) hails from Tønsberg and has played guitar, piano/ syhth and drums in many bands since forming  MIDNATTSVREDE in 1994, including DØDHEIMSGARD, FRAMFERD, GRAND ALCHEMIST and  SKITLIV. For several years he also played in the psychedelic-elec­tronic black metal band LOVEPLANET along with Isaksen,  who  started playing the piano as a little girl, and, whilst still In her early teens, began playing guitar and writing songs. She played and performed vocals in different bands in her home town of Moss, until she found her great love for the bass with the drone/doom band NEPHILA in 2004, and later with LOVEPLANET. Daniel Bakken from Fredrikstad, has played bass and guitar since his early teens, and has been involved in both rock, goth and metal bands - AGHAST MANOR, NEBELHEXE, GOTHMINIS­TER, MAGENTA and GATE TO KHAOS to  name but a few. He has also co-written music for the movie "Sinister".
SUPERLYNX is definitely a band that enjoys performing live, known for an ability to deliver powerful and atmospheric shows.  They will be bringing their heavy, hypnotic, stage show to next year's legendary Inferno Metal Festival in Oslo on the 19th April.
In the meantime you can get a taste of SUPERLYNX via a new video by Carl Eek Torgersen which shows the band during rehearsals  performing three songs from their 2016 debut album "LVX".  The video can be seen at
https://youtu.be/x71-nZlRHLU

Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide - after two instantly sold out tape represses we're finally happy to announce the vinyl release of THE CREEPING UNKNOWN - the acclaimed debut MLP by Minnesota-based primitive death metal aberration NOOSE ROT. Even more exciting is that we've released this LP in collaboration with UK death metal powerhouse Me Saco Un Ojo Records handing the release for Europe.
NOOSE ROT hail from Minnesota and play just totally fucked and putrid death metal. The band came to be around a shared love of members of Gatecreeper, Skeletonwitch, and Wolvhammer for primitive and involved death metal in the vein of Autopsy, Pungent Stench, Coffins, Nihilist, Grave, and Repugnant - deciding to join forces to birth their own unholy death metal abomination that would worship at the altar of the Finnish and Swedish gods of ancestral death and decay. 
Gruesomely regressed and appallingly involved, In their wretched and bludgeoning debut EP NOOSE ROT spew forth a vomited cascade of complete aural filth that engulfs the listener in a blinding deluge of chainsawing guitars, steamrolling drums, and putridly tortured vocals. At its most delicate and refined The Creeping Unknown is nothing more than a coffin-born aural stampede of complete aural rot where caveman-death metal is taken to a sickening new extreme, conjuring similar diseased atmospheres as seen in bands like Cruciamentum, Vastum, Acephalix, Disma, and Grave Miasma. 
The Creeping Unknown has been a cornerstone release for Sentient Ruin, highly acclaimed by the metal underground as one of the best and most vicious death metal debuts of 2018 and applauded by outlets like 
Decibel Magazine, CVLT Nation, and Metal Injection as one of the most exciting new prospects in USDM.

GEHENNAH BIOGRAPHY
A no-nonsense Swedishhard rock/thrash quartet that splits the difference between the blue-collar swagger of Motörhead and the noxious fury of Venom, GEHENNAH was founded in 1992. The band issued its debut studio album, “Hardrocker”, via Primitive Art Records in 1995, and gained a loyal regional following before leaving the label for Osmose Productions and releasing its sophomore long-player, “King of the Sidewalk” (1996). “Decibel Rebel” followed in 1997, and the band spent the early part of the new century exploring various avenues of debauchery before releasing the aptly named “10 Years of Fucked Up Behavior” EP in 2003.
By 2014 the band settled on the lineup of vocalist Mr. Violence, guitarist Rob Stringburner, drummer Hellcop, and bass player Charley Knuckleduster, and issued a new EP/single called “Metal Police”, which ultimately landed the group a deal with Metal Blade. A new full-length release of the same name, which featured the aforementioned EP, two bonus tracks from the Metal Police sessions, and six re-recorded songs from the group's '90s heyday, dropped in 2015. The following year saw the release of the self-described street-metalers' first collection of all new material for the label, “Too Loud to Live, Too Drunk to Die”.
March 9:th 2018, the classic debut "Hardrocker" was reissued after being out of print for over 20 years! Swedish underground label, Critical Mass Recordings put a lot of effort in making this release a stellar one, co-operating with both the band and the original label Primitive Art Records. Together, they dug up the original album artwork, the original 1995 audio masters, and loads of cool band photos from the period, many previously unpublished.
On November 16:th 2018, it's time for another classic GEHENNAH reissue; the 2-track Christmas destroyer "No Fucking Christmas!". For the first time on 12-inch Picture Disc vinyl, in a limited edition of 666 copies world wide, this reissue is not to be missed – a collectors item to be!
GEHENNAH line-up on “Hardrocker”:
Mr. Violence – Explosive Alcobreath
Rob Stringburner – Electrified Barbwire
Ronnie Ripper – Fucking Engine Roar
Hellcop – Hiroshima ‘45
GEHENNAH’s current line-up:
Mr. Violence – Alcoholic Steam Scream
Rob Stringburner – Guitaaarrgh
Charley Knuckleduster – Ba(da)ss
Hellcop – D-beating Posers

ØLTEN veröffentlichen zweite Single 'Raus' + Tourdaten :  Die Schweizer Heavy Rocker ØLTEN haben eine weitere Single mit dem Titel Raus veröffentlicht. Die Band kommentiert:
"The intro riff shares similar sounds with our friends from Unfold, a Swiss band we've all admired for years. This track then continues with a long central part a bit "prog": two guitar notes, four moog notes. And finally, a trax whose brakes give out on the way down."
Hier reinhören   https://soundcloud.com/hummus-records-1/02-olten-ambiance-raus-digi/s-oi38f
Der Song stammt vom kommenden Album AMBIANCE, das am 2.11. via Hummus/Membran & TheOrchard released wird.

ØLTEN nennen ihr neues Album ganz unschuldig "Ambiance".
Aber sie meinen die böseste Form dieses Stils: durch und durch düster, abschüssig, verneinend, zwar immer wieder mit kleinen Hoffnungsfunken und ein gaaaaaaanz bisschen Licht am Ende des Tunnels, aber dennoch trüber als es der kommende Herbst je sein könnte. "Ambiance" ist ein Biest, das seine Boshaftigkeit nicht durch Muskelspiele beweisen muss.
In der (vermeintlichen) Ruhe liegt hier die Kraft.
"Ambiance" wurde live aufgenommen, gemeinsam in einem Raum, so wie es Bands irgendwann früher mal gemacht haben.
Das Album atmet, ist organisch, echt, ungekünstelt. Es ist perfekt arrangiert, aber zugleich spontan, entfesselt und doch kontrolliert.
Und so heavy wie die Herkunft der Band, das Schweizer Jura-Gebirge.
"Heavy Rock Porn Sludge Instrumental" nennen die drei Musiker ihr Baby.

DEVILLE - veröffentlichen episches Video zu 'Cut It Loose' . DEVILLE, die eine spannende Stoner-Metal Mischung spielen, haben ein episches Video zu Cut It Loose veröffentlicht.
Die Band kommentiert:
„One of the most classical Deville songs on the album with the typical hook and massive riffs combined“.

Lightbringer Lyric Video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EraJmZVdOoM
Alle Songs stammen vom am 26.10. erscheinenden Album 'PIGS WITH GODS'.
Über Deville:
Aus dem Rock-Mekka höchstpersönlich – also Schweden - stammen die feinen DEVILLE, die sich auf ihrem neuen Werk "Pigs With Gods" metallischer denn je präsentieren und ihre Stoner-Roots ein Stück in den Hintergrund schieben.
Feeling, Energie und Eingängigkeit stehen bei der Band gleichermaßen im Fokus, so dass die Hitdichte immens ist, ohne den Biss zu verlieren.
Im Gegenteil: "Pigs With Gods" ist heavy, düster und zugleich progressiv.

"The Realm Of The Ancient Stones is a celebration to "Ale's stones". A very old stone formation. Close to my home in south of Sweden."
The band is featuring former members of Paul Di'Anno, Obscurity and Cloudscape.

Experimental black/death metal masters Veilburner announce their new full length which is a two-part concept album on a descent into dementia. Every song is different and unpredictable and yet the sound is intact. Stream a unique track on Bandcamp or YouTube (official video)
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.

VETERAN DANISH BLACK METALLERS BLODARV SIGN TO SOULSELLER RECORDS . Black Metallers BLODARV have inked a deal with the Dutch record label SOULSELLER RECORDS for the release and world-wide distribution of the band's upcoming full-length album "The Illuminating Darkness" which will be available in CD, Digital and 12" Vinyl formats in 2019.
Aside from having  recently signed bands such as  USURPER, DEATHCULT, PATRIA and   GRAVDAL  to their roster, SOULSELLER RECORDS have also been instrumental in the official re-issues of various Black Metal classics  from bands such as GORGOROTH, OPHTHALAMIA, VED BUENS ENDE, OLD FUNERAL, DEN SAAKALDTE, THORNIUM and ANCIENT, to name but a few.
Commenting on the decision to sign with SOULSELLER RECORDS, BLODARV had this to say:
We have to say that we are really looking forward to working with Soulseller -  a cooperation that will greatly benefit both the band and the fans. Soulseller have proven themselves to be a label of some note with a great many quality  releases over the years, and we are more than satisfied to be working with them on the upcoming album.
One of the things that was very important to us was that this album should also be released on Vinyl. Not only because many of our fans prefer vinyl over other formats, but also because as soon as we had written the first track, we all felt that vinyl was where it belonged, and,  as a consequence,  the whole album was created with that particular medium in mind.
Another aspect to signing with Soulseller was the availability issue.  Up until now, once we had sold out of our releases at the official BLODARV store in Denmark it has been extremely difficult, not to mention very expensive, for our European fans and followers to get their hands on them.  Ordering from Mexico, where our previous label and their distro were situated,  meant that fans in Europe were hit with taxes, customs charges and prohibitive postal costs, whilst we ourselves could only stock a very small number, as all our releases had been limited to 1,000 copies.  With Soulseller this will all change.
There are, of course, a few more reasons why we are looking forward to this co operation, not least of which are trust, shared visions and goals, dedication, artistic freedom, and the excellent communication we have with Soulseller.
More info about "The Illuminating Darkness"  will be available soon, but in the meantime BLODARV recently gave fans an insight into what they could expect from the album by premiering the track  “A dark trail of Death" which is available to stream or download at the following:

DARK ESSENCE RECORDS TO CELEBRATE TAAKE'S 25TH ANNIVERSARY WITH A LIMITED EDITION PICTURE DISC BOX SET CONTAINING ALL THE BAND'S FULL-LENGTH ALBUMS .If there is one thing that Hoest, the iconic leader and frontman of Norwegian Black Metallers TAAKE,  has demonstrated with his trademark Helnorsk Svartmetall  sound  over the band's twenty five year career, it is that it is possible for the genre not only to survive, but also to thrive and re-generate itself into something fresh and relevant, whilst losing none of its traditional feel.
And alongside TAAKE for many years now has been the Dark Essence Records label, based, like the band itself, in Bergen, and well known not only for its roster of long-established and extremely successful exponents of Black and Extreme Metal, but also for its unerring ability to sniff out the best of the new generation of bands coming up today. 
Now, this hugely successful partnership between label and band has come up with a collaboration that will see the release of "7 Fjell".  This career-spanning, limited edition box set will be a one-time only issue of 1,000 copies, and will contain seven picture discs that comprise all of TAAKE's full-length albums to date. Each individual disc of seven tracks each (no bonus tracks), will come in a die-cut sleeve, and also included in the box will be  a TAAKE slip mat for your record player!   Of the seven albums, the last four have never before been released as picture discs.  
"7 Fjell", which translated  means the "7 Mountains",  is a reference to both the seven mountains that surround Bergen, as well as the seven albums themselves.  With artwork by HELHEIM's H'grimnir, based on a photo by Peter Beste, the picture discs are as follows:

For fans of Alcest and Austere.
Record label

Release date (dd/mm/yyyy)  02/06/2018
Genre
 Post Black Metal
Line-up  Mario Steiner
Tracklist
1. Earth
2. Air
3. Water
4. Fire
Tired of the similarity between many black and post-black metal bands, Frust emerged due to its founder's necessity to create the music he wanted to listen to.
With a music history that goes all the way back to the end of the 90s, Mario Steiner saw himself being forced to give up on all his music activities due to an anxiety disorder, with Frust being his first release in almost two decades.
"Elements" sees Frust mixing traditional chants featuring female voices from Bulgaria and Syria and an ambient-like atmosphere, with traditional black metal.
The band's full-length "Recurring Dreams" is also set to be released on January 2019.

AESTHETICS of a loss is misspelled by 9 out of 10 people. It’s also a project where every mourning note you hear has been done by the sweaty palms of one overly motivated individual.
Genre: Melodic death metal
Record label: N/A - self released
Lineup: Jonas - Everything
Inspired by the aftermath of one of the finest human traits possible, betrayal and deceit, the Aesthetics awoke in the fall of 2014. On the southern plains of Sweden, just a hand grenade throw from the centre of the crime city, songs were written, recorded and discarded. The focus was settled early on songs that would take time to finish, songs that were not rushed. No compromises.
The sonical expression of this aftermath had to be melodic death metal. The mix of weeping melancholic tones mixed with the rhythmic interplay of backing guitars and drums were the only way to recreate the depths of events transpired. As songs progressed more experimental elements such as clean vocals and huge ambient tones were added to further emphasize the carrying melodies.
Finally, after 3 years in the making the first EP entitled l'Égoïsme finally saw the light of day. The EP format was chosen with care to let the songs have enough personality and space. All music was crafted to let the lost art of viewing an album as a whole take place. To let the album have dynamics of peaks and valleys by the placement of songs within it.
As an output from a cathartic process of healing wounds it is all about conveying the bleak imagery of things not usually talked about. And as a consequence maybe, just maybe, it might also reach out to someone finding themselves lost in the same place?

Prophets Of The Apocalypse deliver an onslaught of pure Thrash Metal destruction with the release of their "War Metal" album.
Veteran Pete Serro fronts their attack on vocals and with his guitar fury. Tales of epic bloody battles, as well as conflicts of the mind, are spun on this conceptual album journey. Thunderous bass and unrelenting war drums will overrun your lands, while raw, yet deliberate guitar riffing and solos ravage your defense. The vehement vocal approach of Pete Serro (ex-Strychnine, ex-Northwinds) blurs the borders between Thrash and blackened death metal, especially on the anthem, "Storm The Gates" as the Prophets breach your walls and encroach on your kingdom.

For fans of - Dissection, Thulcandra, Uada, Vektor, Sacramentum, Sathanas, Aura Noir, Necrophobic
US black metal band Imperialist have conjured up a brilliant sci-fi themed album that stands out both conceptually as well as musically. Rooted in the early Swedish black metal sound of luminaries like Necrophobic, Dissection and Sacramentum, Imperialist hone it up further to suit their futuristic theme by adding touches of thrash metal without diluting the rich aura. 'Cipher' is backed by a visually stunning artwork by Adam Burke (Vektor, Lurk) that extends into a continuous two-panel work depicting the grand theme. It's rare to find bands that have a bold vision and at the same time creating the perfect blend for music that is at once atavistic and forward-thinking. This is one of the finest examples of meticulously written black metal counterbalancing aggression with melodies and thrashy sections.

Influenced by the dark beauty of their home province of Silesia, their music is enriched by lyrics written by Nihil, one of the most gifted Polish artists of the decade. The band recently reached new levels with their theatrical show “Wesele”, staged at one of Europe's most acclaimed venues, the Stary Theatre in Cracow. As well as a tour of Japan and a headline tour of Poland, Furia have also performed at prestigious festivals such as Roadburn, Brutal Assault, Open’er Festival, Throne Fest, Off Festival, Primavera Sound, Castle Party and Motocultor. 2018 sees Furia take their live shows to even more stages in Europe.

THE MOOR – “ JUPITER’S IMMIGRANTS “
For fans of: Opeth, Mastodon, Dark Tranquillity, In Flames, Metallica and Faith No More
Hailing from from Venice (IT), The Moor were formed in the summer of 2009 by vocalist/guitarist Enrico Longhin and guitarist Davide Carraro (both ex-members of Bleed In Vain).
The band recorded their first EP during spring/summer 2010, mixing and mastering sessions took place at Studio Fredman (Sweden) with acclaimed producers Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd (In Flames, Dream Evil, Opeth, Dimmu Borgir).
Since their inception, The Moor has consistently incorporated sounds from prog rock, metal, death metal (for the guitars parts), seventies and alternative influences into their compositions making for a very compelling end product; yet all the time with a metal outlook.
Finnish label Lion Music released the first album ‘Year Of The Hunger’ in winter 2012/2013, recordings took place at Flameout Studio (Italy) while the mastering session this time took place at Fascination Street Studio with producer Jens Bögren (Devin Townsend, Amon Amarth, Katatonia…).
The band played several concerts and appeared on many festivals across the Europe. In the year 2014 Björn Strid from world acclaimed metal act Soilwork, appears in their single ‘The Castaway’.
After a sabbatical, in winter 2017 the band releases the new single with a brand new  videoclip; the song is ‘Lead The Difference’, and it’s the first track extracted from the upcoming album.
The new album ‘Jupiter’s Immigrants’ features very special guest and endorsements from artists like Mikael Stanne (Dark Tranquillity) and Niklas Isfeldt (Dream Evil), while the band renewed the collaboration with the producer Fredrik Nordström for the mixing and mastering sessions.
Vocalist/guitarist Enrico Longhin comments on the new album:
"Jupiter’s Immigrants" came after a sabbatical period for the band, it is a completely new journey for the whole band. Thealbum was mainly composed in just two months, I trashed all the rough ideas I had before that, then focused in what was resonating inside me in that period of my life. After all the songs and riffs were written, Andrea Livieri joined the band as new guitarist and among all the good feelings we always had, his contribution was really strong; almost every song in the album was rearranged and brought up to a next level."

Heavy Doom Metal band BLACK LOTUS debut album Out Now ! Barcelona-based Heavy Doom Metal band BLACK LOTUS releases their debut album 'SONS OF SATURN' October 19th 2018 by Inverse Records. Watch the Studio recording teaser here:  https://youtu.be/nN3a6fAVqfE
Black Lotus was founded by Hug Ballesta in 2015. After consolidating the right line-up, the band headed to the Moontower Studios end 2017 to early 2018 for the recording and mixing of the album by Javi Félez. The mastering was done by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, Portland, Oregon.
Charlie Gotaskull comments: "We are very excited for the release of the album. Reviews so far have been incredibly positive. Now we are willing to see how the album is received by the audience and their level of acceptance. Hope it does as well as album reviews did."
The band is thrilled about the critics’ responses so far, with reviews’ scores on the range of 7.5 to 9 out of 10, from important channels, sites and online radios worldwide. They have organized a release show November 29th at Sala Monasterio in Barcelona, with the first participation of the new member Caio Pastore on the guitar. Black Lotus will share the stage with the renown Sludge Doom band Acherontia
Christian Vil adds: “Our goal is to get people to listen to our music, so over the next months we will focus on maximizing album distribution and defending it in as many live shows as possible. We want to attract gig promoters and live show bookers for our inclusion in their rosters and multiplying live performances.”
Black Lotus' sound is grounded in the diverse influences of the band members. Traditional Heavy Metal is the common factor and driving force of the band, but alternative sounds of the 90s, Stoner Rock, Doom Metal and post metal genres are also elements in its crucible. Their compositions are embracing all those influences without limitations or dogmas. Likewise, lyrics are eminently symbolic, expressing a dystopic vision of society and their view of the world. Classic mythology, occultism, and personal experiences and personal visions are the sources for their compositions.
"Sons of Saturn" is available on all digital platforms worldwide.
Track list:
01. Kings
02. The Sandstorm
03. The Pyre - intro.
04. Protective Fire

Swedish extremists THIRD STORM have unleashed a new track from their upcoming full-length album, A GRAND MANIFESTATION. The song, titled "As the Stars Watched the Birth of Eternity," is a scathingly violent example of the old-school black/death onslaught fans can expect from A Grand Manifestation.

An intense hybrid of black, death, doom and thrash, A Grand Manifestation is the continuation of 2015's Taritiya Me, a two-song, 26-minute EP that welcomed THIRD STORM back from a decades-long hiatus.  
THIRD STORM will release A Grand Manifestation November 9 on Dark Descent Records.

All The Lights Faded
Line-up: Music, lyrics, artwork, design, layout and recording by Martjern
Hailing from Czech Republic, Infernal Cult is the solo project of Martjern. Initially inspired by old-school black metal, it later evolved into an original style where the musician added melody and a lot of dark and evil elements.
 Infernal Cult's debut album, "All The Lights Faded", was released on July 29th. Written during a really dark period of the musician's life, Martjern spent two years to make all his ideas work and to sharpen every melody until he achieved a perfect result. Both music and lyrics refer to real personal experiences of misery, depression, anger, hate, self-destruction and suicide attempts. "All The Lights Faded" is as real and honest as it can be.

Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide -  we're happy to present you with the (now sold out!) release of "03"  by NEGATIVA.
Now featuring H.V. of Wormlust/Mystískaos fame on vocals, and limited to 100 pro-dubbed white cassette tapes, this new album sees the band’s signature sound perfectly preserved as they tread their staple terrain with new found grimness: total dehumanization, and disintegration of the I, through the unquenchable adoration of the void.
Tracks from the album have been premiered in the last month by
No Clean Singing, Toilet ov Hell, and Indy Metal Vault, while the full album was premiered by CVLT Nation - with all outlets lauding and applauding the bands stripped down but dense and enveloping approach to raw and miserable black metal. As a result of the staggering quality of the music, the limited cassette tape released by Sentient Ruin was sold out in a mere three weeks.
03's most distinctive trait is its raw and visceral simplicity paired with its enveloping and dense sound - the result of a crisp and thick production, its incessant and eerie mid-tempo crawl, and its catchy and groovy melodies which make both for a menacing and captivating listen. Within you will hear echoes of Craft, MGLA, Burzum, early Shining, Silencer, and Dissection resonate with unseen clarity as the dreadful atmospheres and trance-inducing riffs drag you across thresholds unknown....
03 is officially released TODAY October 19 2018 by Sentient Ruin on limited cassette, and by Nebular Carcoma Records in the EU on CD. While the tape is sold out reviews and any other coverage are welcome and appreciated in order to support the band on their quest through the shadows!
Thank you as always for your time and attention given to our releases.
Sincerely,  Sentient Ruin

'Hadal Ascending' is the fourth full-length album of German death metal masters ICHOR. The album links thematically to the bands’ albums 'Benthic Horizon' and 'Depths'. The fictional story of a devastated and hate-filled deep-sea world full of creatures and mystical beings continues: Human warriors reached the hadal-level in the deep sea and fight a bitter war against gorgons and creatures of the depths. To implore transcendent energies, rituals are held during the slaughter. The demon “Zaan” wakes and feeds on the blood of the warriors. He opens the portal to other worlds and as leader of gorgons and creatures, he leads them through the portal into the empire of stars and planets.
Whereas in 'Depths' pure destructiveness dominated, in 'Hadal Ascending' little sparks of melancholic hope flash – only for one reason: To intensify the pain of the trident that penetrates the heart of all existence. The three-pronged weapon is seen as a symbol for the union of three musical elements which in their melding form the musical concept of the album and thus link the story line with the music: blast beat brutality, chaotic mid-tempo melody maelstrom and ravaging rhythm riffs.
'Hadal Ascending' continues the band’s previous albums: US death metal influenced guitar-work which more and more frequently breaks out in varying and freezing cold black metal parts. Innovative cymbal sculptures and bass drum patterns set modern accents. Deep growling and selective twisted freak outs of the vocals jump in the face of the listeners and take them on a journey to the spuming shores of the apocalypse. The hallmark of the previous album 'Depths' was an up-tempo blast beat thunderstorm. On 'Hadal Ascending' the tempo of the songs diversify and bring the album an aggressively dynamic edge. Like the previous output of ICHOR, 'Hadal Ascending' is more than an album with 30 seconds flash in the pan tracks. The dense atmosphere of the entire album is due to the joy of detail in each song and bites slowly but surely into the listener’s ear.
'Hadal Ascending' was recorded, mixed and mastered in Hertz Studio Poland (Behemoth, Hate, Decapitated, Vader), like 'Benthic Horizon and 'Depths'. The cover artwork was painted by Par Olofsson (Aborted, The Faceless, Immortal). Mentalporn (Origin, Immolation, Hate, Behemoth) graced 'Hadal Ascending' with an elaborate layout.
For the track 'In Ecstasy' a cover art video was created and for the track 'Tales From The Depths' a music video was filmed.
'Hadal Ascending' is released via Unholy Conspiracy Deathwork (CD, digital) and WOOAAARGH (vinyl).

MASS INFECTION – “SHADOWS BECAME FLESH”
Genre: Death Metal
For fans of: Morbid Angel | Hate Eternal | Deicide
Line-up:
George Stournaras - Guitars/Vocals
Nick Lytras - Guitars
John Kyriakou - Bass
Giulio Galati - Drums
In the small hours, in the darkest hours of the night, when time stretches into a warped eternity and the entities of dream and nightmare walk abroad, the seemingly immutable laws of reality are distorted and broken. It's a time of transformation, of birth and rebirth, when angels become demons and devils turn to the light...and some monsters stay monsters, but become even more powerful, even more unknowable and twisted, darker and more terrifying than even the dreaming mind can fathom...
It's been four years since Mass Infection last released an album, the thundering, grinding brutality of For I Am Genocide. With that album the band established their status as an accomplished strike force, waging war on the edge of death metal's extreme outposts, forging their own sound in the white heat of battle. Yet they were never content with their victories and accomplishments. Mass Infection kept pushing on further into the black, until they found themselves tumbling over the edge into that world of dreams and visions. They spoke with devils, walked with the terrors of night, were broken and rebuilt and have returned anew, to begin a new era of twilight brutality with Shadows Became Flesh!
Everything about Shadows Became Flesh shines with a new arcane luminosity; the guitars weave bewildering, obscure patterns, the atmosphere is siphoned from the most twisted nightmares, the drum barrage from Giulio Galati (Hideous Divinity, Bloodshot Dawn) is utterly overwhelming. With the new sound come new visuals and the artwork created by painter Maximos Manolis is the perfect adornment for this work of ominous wickedness. Mastered by Alan Douches (Death, Deicide, Hate Eternal etc) Shadows Became Flesh sounds breathtaking in its brutality.
Released by Comatose Music on December 7th, Shadows Became Flesh doesn't just set new standards for Mass Infection, it throws down a formidable challenge to every band in the death metal genre.

INHUME – EXHUME: 25 YEARS OF DECOMPOSITION “
From the start on 25 years ago as a nine-piece, INHUME have always aimed for the most brutal, most intense and most disturbing, blending influences from 80’s proto-Goregrind / Grindcore and early 90’s brutal Death Metal and, release after release, they’ve proven a horde of bloodthirsty fans they’re one of the leading forces of the Death / Grind scene worldwide.
“Exhume: 25 Years of Decomposition”, the brand new collection of all of their demos, splits (with BLOOD, LAST DAYS OF HUMANITY, S.M.E.S., SUPPOSITORY and MUMAKIL) and tribute tracks (REGURGITATE, REPULSION…) so far, is not only celebrating the band’s quarter of a century history but, starting and ending (for the studio part) with the song “Tiamat” from both 1995 and 2009, it’s also a demonstration if one was needed, that INHUME have always not only aimed for the throat, but have also constantly been resharpening their weapons, making them deadlier with each new version.
Also adding previously unreleased ten years old pre-production material for the band’s latest full-length “Moulding the Deformed” and three rare live tracks from 1997, “Exhume” has been compiled and remastered at CONKRETE Studio (DEFEATED SANITY, MERCYLESS, PUTRID OFFAL…) and comes with a re-worked version of the band’s “The Missing Limb” 1997 demo artwork and a booklet full of detailed liner notes, classic pictures, flyers, etc., making it a mandatory addition to all Death / Grind fans collection!

MORTUOUS was forged in San Jose, California in 2009 from the ashes of Colin Tarvin’s previous project Funerealm.

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.

Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide -  we’re proud to finally announce the release of BLACK EARTH’s incredible debut LP A CRYPTIC HOWL OF MORBID TRUTH for the first time ever on vinyl. The limited edition black LP will be officially released on November 9 2018 in collaboration with cult extreme experimental Spanish label Bestiarie and is now pre-ordeable on our store and Bandcamp.
Spanish ritual black ambience/terror electronics sorcerers Black Earth originally released A Cryptic Howl of Morbid Truth in 2015 on tape through US underground tape label Graceless Recordings, long before Sentient Ruin issued their most recent second MLP Diagrams of a Hidden Order. Now this monstrous behemoth of sublime ritualistic aural cacophony finally assumes its ultimate form as a 12” LP of black vinyl housed in a single pocket jacket with printed inner sleeves. On a A Cryptic Howl of Morbid Truth Black Earth unravel over forty minutes of shapeshifting, ghastly, and colossal sound sculpting, constructing before the listener an hallucinatory and blood freezing chasm of slithering drones, spectral orchestrations and wretched electronics that ravage the senses. Weaving black metal, drone, dark ambient, harsh noise, and ritual atmospherics, with this monstrous debut album Black Earth have crossed thresholds unknown in ritual ambient invocations, laying the foundations for a new realm of sensorial sonic abuse and instantly proving themselves as being one of the most visionary and striking entities in modern dark metal and ritual ambience electronics.
Pre-orders for the vinyl and digital are now available on our store and Bandcamp, while the release will be handled in the EU once again by Bestiarie.
Thank you as always for your time and attention given to our releases.
Sincerely, Sentient Ruin

Die Death-/Thrash Metaler von THE OUTSIDE haben ein neues Video zu ihrem aussagestarken War Among The Poor veröffentlicht.
Hier ansehen:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXjmKDAWRH0
Der Song stammt aus dem kürzlich erschienenen Werk "WE FEEL THROUGH THE DEAD", das via Metropolitan Edge & Green Zone / H´art herauskam.
Die Band kommentiert:
"(Fehlende) Bildung festigt Macht, fördert sozialen Missbrauch und finanzielle Überlegenheit. Uns wird vorgegaukelt, Konsum wäre der Ausweg. Populisten nutzen das aus und behaupten, geflohene Menschen seien Schuld an Ungleichheit und Armut. Darum geht es in War Among the Poor".

Mit ihrem neuen Album „GRENZGÆNGER“ sowie dem zweiten Album „Pavor Nocturnus“, das Neuaufnahmen aus den Anfangstagen der Band enthält, sind AGRYPNIE derzeit auf Tour. Passend dazu wurde jetzt eine neue Single zu „Die Längste Nacht“ veröffentlicht, die hier gehört werden kann: https://youtu.be/VtiaEogCJqI
Das neue Album „Grenzgænger“ kann ohne Weiteres als Magnum Opus bezeichnet werden. Mit einer Spielzeit von über einer Stunde haben AGRYPNIE einen facettenreichen Klangkosmos erschaffen, der den Hörer immer weiter in die Tiefe zieht. Wütende Raserei wechselt unvermittelt in desillusionierende Hoffnungslosigkeit und die Grenzen des Raumes verwischen, je weiter man in die Endlosigkeit vordringt.
Das zweite Album „Pavor Nocturnus“ enthält die Songs der ersten Veröffentlichung, der Split mit Fated, die seit Jahren nicht mehr erhältlich ist. Die Neuaufnahme der Songs aus den frühen Anfangstagen von AGRYPNIE sorgt für ein gänzlich neues, gewaltigeres Gewand dieser Titel. Darüber hinaus gibt es neues Material, das sich Abseits der schwarzmetallischen Gefilde bewegt, sowie zahlreiche orchestrale Neuinterpretationen verschiedener AGRYPNIE-Klassiker, die auch diese Songs in gänzlich neue und vollkommen ungewöhnliche Perspektiven rücken.

FLESH FEST 6
Mit Revel in Flesh und Endseeker hatten wir schon zwei Vertreter der "New Wave Of German Death Metal" bei uns, und mit OBSCURE INFINITY führen wir diese Linie konsequent und voller Stolz fort!
Die 2007 gegründete Band aus dem Westerwald konnte mit ihrem letzten Studio-Album "Perpetual Descending Into Nothingness" (FDA Records) mehr als fett überzeugen und ein echtes Ausrufezeichen setzen.
Zeit für ein Wiedersehen also, denn beim 6. FLESH FEST wird es fast genau drei Jahre her sein, seit Obscure Infinity das letzte Mal im Stattbahnhof Schweinfurt zu Gast waren.
Und dann - Achtung! - im besten Fall auch mit einer neuen Scheibe im Gepäck. Denn der Release des neuen Albums ist für Anfang 2019 geplant.
Wir freuen uns sehr auf die sympathischen Jungs und auf die volle Ladung Death Metal aus Deutschland!

Legendary drummer, Raymond Herrera (former: Fear Factory, Brujeria, Arkaea) calls album "a righteous barrage of the senses with some great riffs, beats and melodies thrown in. This album is true to the metal art form, and is a must hear."
SINGLE BULLET THEORY will release their latest album DIVINE WAYS OF CHAOS on October 19th after a lengthy and tumultuous period which saw lineup changes and serious health conditions delay its release. SBT is proud to announce that this will be their first full length album released independently and under their complete control.
Divine Ways of Chaos will be available on all major internet streaming sites including iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Pandora, Slacker Radio, iHeartRadio, YouTube Music, Amazon Music and Amazon On-Demand where CDs will also be available.
Single Bullet Theory plans to perform bone cancer treatment since the spring.
"Years back, when I set out to begin Divine Ways of Chaos", says frontman Matt DiFabio, "SBT had just returned home from a three-week tour with Into Eternity. The band was firing on all cylinders and I believed I had the ultimate lineup for a serious album release. I spent the better part of a year working on this album and am extremely proud of what I did... But, for a variety of reasons, we had member changes during the album's development and directly following its completion. As a result, truthfully, I sort of lost my desire to even have these recordings see the light of day. So here we are a few years later... Having our current drummer, Rob, out of commission until he fully recovers from bone cancer: the surgery and all the difficulty dealing with that... Having Justin incessantly breathing down my neck to finally release this album and the fact that Bill and I needed some sort of goal to look forward to; alas, Divine Ways of Chaos is now here. I spent the last few weeks going back and revisiting these recordings and I have to say, this was the most ambitious album I have ever made. It was my first attempt at self-producing, recording, mixing and was a true labor of love. I am absolutely thrilled with the musicianship that everyone involved displayed."
"It has been a long time coming but will be well worth the wait" says SBT bassist Bill Mez. Although the album was recorded back in 2014/2015 during Mez's hiatus, he is happy to see that all is not lost. "When I rejoined the band, we began to move past this album, working on new material with our revised lineup. We had a hard time gaining momentum for Divine Ways of Chaos, and unfortunately Matt began to lose interest. But I always felt it would be a damn shame to let such great songs fall by the wayside and not be able to put them into the hands of our fans. The album is simply too fucking good!"
The album features drummer, Justin Arman, whose contributing style of Latin Polyrhythms and Thrash offers another dimension to the music.
"I played this album like it would be my last. Matt really pushed me in the studio to totally cut loose, and the performance speaks for itself." Justin has been one of the greatest proponents of the band since the early years. "I'm dedicating my efforts behind this album to the band's drummer, Rob Gladden, and can't wait to see him hit the stage with SBT again when he's recovered."
Tim Roth of Into Eternity fame contributed a guitar solo to the album and had the following to say...
"Thanks to Matt and Single Bullet Theory for having me do a guest solo on the title track of their new album, Divine Ways of Chaos. Matt has done it again! There are plenty of brutal riffs and catchy songs on this new album. Into Eternity and SBT go way back to 2005 when we toured the USA together with Amorphis. I'm really pleased with the solo I came up with for this new song and I would encourage all metal fans to check out this new release! Keep it Metal!"
Divine Ways of Chaos is comprised of 10 songs laced with soaring guitar solos, hook-laden choruses, and some of the most brutal grooves the band has ever laid down. From the hypnotic melodies of "Last Train Out" or "The Arena" to the pure sonic brutality of thrasher "Fire From the Sky", the band has created an epic-feeling album while retaining the intensity SBT is known to deliver. The title track "Divine Ways of Chaos" marries crushing heaviness with blistering guitar solos while tracks like "Damnation" and "Bleeding for You" showcase the band's more groove-oriented capabilities, while lyrically representing a dark side of the human psyche.
The album was produced, recorded and mixed by Matt DiFabio and mastered by James Murphy at The Safehouse. All drums were performed by Justin Arman and recorded at OX1 Sound Studio by Jason Ruch. Additional production was contributed by Carlos Alvarez at Dirty Viking Audio Production. The album features guest performances by Tim Roth (Into Eternity), current Level Fields vocalist Alan Tecchio (Watchtower, Hades, Non-Fiction) and Jeff Rose (ex-Power Theory), as well as performances by former SBT members John Ruszin III, Harry Lannon, Patrick Brose, and Jeff Kalber.

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