GODSLAVE feiern das einjährige Jubiläum ihres Albums "REBORN AGAIN" mit einem Lyric-Video zu "Rock On, Man": https://youtu.be/S6i6O0sRaq8
„Mit „Reborn Again“ haben GODSLAVE ein grundlegend neues Konzept in die von Schwarzmalerei geprägte Metal Szene eingeführt: ein konsequent positive Message!
Am 9. März feierte die Platte ersten Geburtstag und das feiern sie mit dem Video zu „Rock on, man“. Der Song führt die STATUS QUO – Vernarrtheit der Saarländer nach der Tribut-EP „Whatever we want“ von 2015 weiter. Ein selbst komponierter Song im QUO-Style als Tribut für den verstorbenen Gitarrist Rick Parfitt. Keine traurige Einkehr, sondern eine Feier des Lebens und Schaffens und allem, was für immer bleiben wird. Was auch immer passiert: rock on, man!“

  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QT1Sd9PitbA
Tom Tee kommentiert: "THRIVE was conceived as a powerful, upbeat, energetic and generally uplifting kind of song. It's about Man's rise through the centuries and millennia as we explore our planet, our own human nature, and ultimately our universe. Musically, the track reels you this way and that, moving rapidly through a plethora of riffs, tempos and key changes. I get a real kick out of this tune, and I hope you will too!"
Das erstklassig produzierte "Thriving Force" ist ein gelungener Balance-Act aus technischem Anspruch und gelungenem Songwriting, komplex, hart, ausgefeilt und voller Herzblut.
Inspiriert von u.a. Gojira, Sylosis, Hacride, Scar Symmetry und Rush hat Tom hier ein echtes Kleinod fertiggestellt, das bereits beim ersten Hören überzeugt, aber bei jedem Durchlauf weitere faszinierende Facetten offenbart.

Die deutsche Thrash Metal Band ERADICATOR feiert heute eine Videopremiere zu ihrem Song Trigger To Apocalypse.
Der Song stammt aus der Jubliäumsedition von THE ATOMIC BLAST, das am 22.3. re-released wird und vier neu aufgenommene Songs beinhaltet!

Vor genau zehn Jahren veröffentlichten die Sauerländer Thrasher ERADICATOR mit "The Atomic Blast" ihr erstes Full-length-Album.
Am 22. März 2019 erscheint die erweiterte, sehnsüchtig erwartete Neuauflage des seit einigen Jahren vergriffenen Erstschlags der Band.
Neben den neun Klassikern des Debüts, die in unveränderter Weise zum Umfang der Veröffentlichung gehören, haben ERADICATOR zusätzlich vier der Songs im Studio neu eingespielt.
Um den Charakter der gereiften Songs besser abzubilden, wurden die ausgewählten Stücke in einer Live-Situation innerhalb weniger Stunden aufgenommen.
Außerdem enthält die Jubiläumsversion ein komplett überarbeitetes Booklet, unter anderem mit Fotos aus 15 Jahren turbulenter Bandgeschichte.
Erscheinen wird die CD über Green Zone Music.
Als besonderes Highlight für alle Liebhaber des schwarzen Goldes erscheint zugleich die längst überfällige Vinyl-LP von "The Atomic Blast" über das Label  ftwctp Records.
Diese Version kommt zwar ohne die Bonustracks, enthält dafür aber einen Download-Code der Extended-Version und schmückt sich mit dem ursprünglich geplanten originalen Cover-Artwork.
Zudem ist sie auf 250 Exemplare limitiert.
Songs wie ´Possessed By The Devil´, ´Capital Punishment´ oder ´When Bullets Drop Like Rain…´ haben auch 2019 nichts von ihrer damaligen Frische eingebüßt, sind nach wie vor fester Bestandteil der Shows von ERADICATOR und lassen die Metal-Horns der Thrash Jünger nach oben schnellen.
Wer diesen Klassiker der Bandgeschichte noch nicht im Regal stehen hat, oder seine Sammlung um die neuen Versionen erweitern möchte, sollte nicht zögern und zuschlagen.

Maniacs! Da draußen gibt es tatsächlich Menschen die behaupten dass Heavy Metal tot sei. Wir haben heute eine Band für euch die der junge und lebendige Beweis ist dass wir dieser Annahme keine weitere Beachtung schenken sollten. Wir haben übrigens noch ein paar Tickets übrig ) https://www.cudgel.de/Tickets/
Um eins vorweg zu nehmen - wir reden nicht über klassischen Heavy Metal wenn wir uns mit SLAEGT befassen. Die Kerle schaffen es gekonnt eine Prise Black Metal und dieses gewisse undefinierbare Etwas einfließen zu lassen die ihre Musik zu dem machen was sie ist: In allererster Linie - außergewöhnlich! Akzentuiertes Drumming trifft traumhafte Melodieläufe trifft rauchig-rauen Gesang trifft ausgezeichnetes Songwriting. Und dabei sind alle Bandmitglieder gerade mal in ihren (frühen) 20ern. Wir sehen die Band mehr als verdient auf unserem Festival und euch, hoffentlich zahlreich, vor der Bühne.

Das Power-Trio ATHANASIA, aus L.A. spielt einen originellen Hybriden aus klassischem und zeitgenössischem Heavy Metal.  Mit "THE ORDER OF THE SILVER COMPASS", veröffentlichte die Band am 15. März ihr Debüt-Album auf ROAR! Rock of Angels Records.
Zu diesen Anlass erschien auch das Video zum Track "White Horse", welches ihr hier sehen könnt:
 https://youtu.be/jN0PE9VhjZQ
Produced/Engineered by Caleb Bingham at Nightmare Sound
Mixed by Chris Collier at Mission:Black Studios
Mastered by Joe Bozzi at Bernie Grundman Mastering
"The Order Of The Silver Compass" jongliert hemmungslos mit breitbeinigen Stadion-Rock-Refrains, Bay-Area-Aggression und Düster-Metal-Versatzstücken. Der Song steht dabei klar vor etwaiger Effekthascherei im Vordergrund. ATHANASIA rocken laut und direkt auf die Zwölf!
"The Order Of The Silver Compass" ist seit Freitag erhältlich als Digipak CD, Picture Disc (limitiert auf 300 Stück weltweit) & als Download!
ATHANASIA besteht aus Sänger/Gitarrist Caleb Bingham (Ex- FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH), Bassist Brandon Miller, und Drummer Jason West (Ex- MURDERDOLLS/WEDNESDAY 13).

PESTEROUS MIND – “HALLU.CINATION”
Genre: Modern Death Metal
Label: Boersma Records
Vertrieb: Edel Germany GmbH
VÖ: 29.03.2019
„Die Welt steht auf Messers Schneide, und wir halten ihr den musikalischen Spiegel vor!“
Dies ist die Motivation hinter Pesterous Mind, zusammengerauft im Oktober 2015, um Euch die
musikalische Apokalypse darzubieten. Und so veröffentlichten die vier Freunde (Sascha, Boogie, Andy, Phil) im März 2016 ihre erste 3-Track Demo und konnten damit für Aufsehen sorgen. Schon zu diesen Zeiten verstand es die Band hervorragend, ihren Death Metal mit den unterschiedlichsten Einflüssen zu schmücken. Genregrenzen kennen die 4 Oberfranken nicht. Auch
wenn sie Thrash-, Death-, Black-, Core-, und Prog-Metal Elemente miteinander vermischen, haben die Jungs enormen Wiedererkennungswert und sich somit ihr eigenes Genre erarbeitet.
Dieses wurde dann mit der DIY Veröffentlichung ihres ersten Full Length Albums „INFINITE ABYSS“ im September 2017 zelebriert, welches national sowie international top Wertungen einfahren konnte. Das ermöglichte es ihnen, viele Live Erfahrungen auf großen Bühnen zu sammeln. Das Record Label Boersma-Records wurde dadurch auf die Band aufmerksam. Darauffolgend konnte eine Zusammenarbeit für das nächste Album im Februar 2018 bekannt gegeben werden.

NEST – “ METEMPSYCHOSIS “
Origin: Lexington (USA)
Genre: Doom, Black Metal
FFO: Primitive Man, Rorcal, Unerathly Trance, Celtic Frost, Khanate ...
Members: Kyle Keener & Corey Stringer
 Artwork: Jan Robbe
Recorded: Jason Groves @ Sneak Attack Studios
Mastered: Jason Groves
Pre-order:  www.wooaaargh.com/nest-metempsychosis-lp    www.nestdoom.bandcamp.com/album/metempsychosis
NEST crawl from a light-forsaken oubliette of hideous malformed space time and burrow directly into the neck-snapping sub-cortex of the modern sludge troglodite's brain.
The American guitar/drums duo generate the kind of sounds you might expect to hear echoing from the mouth of some abyssal gateway, fluctuating between rhythmic, pulsing riffs as of something dragging itself across the floor and the throat shredding howls of a black metal cacophony, struggling against the wind of the void.
These guys create something special within the heavily saturated Sludge scene. If pressed to come up with a genre for this release you might say it was noise tinged, blackened sludge-doom amongst others.
That might sound like a band having an identity crisis but the Kentucky two piece present an album here with 'Metempsychosis' which is absolutely thematically and musically coherent.
It embraces the dichotomy of being both abrasively ear shredding while simultaneously pulling the listener in with the promise of headbanging riffs fit to give anyone a taste for mosh coupled with dynamic performances and a serious sense of scale.
Everything on this release sounds huge.
The guitars feel like they were recorded at a distance, possibly deep underwater, and have thick black ink dripping from every note.
The drums reverberate like the blows of someone carving stone.
Over it all the vocals are suprisingly present, tying the listener to the immediacy of the sound while simultaneously evoking the bleakest black metal and sludge records.
Moments of Khanate and The Abominable Iron Sloth collide with Celtic Frost and an ever present sense of dread throghout.
Certainly one to pickup. Certainly impossible to ignore once heard.

Franconian pagan metallers DELIRIUM have set April 12th, 2019 as the release date for their sophomore album "URKRAFT", which will be released via MDD!
Those who know the band from their numerous live shows or the "Wolfshenker" 2014 EP already know what to expect: eight brand new tracks of extremely varied Pagan Metal with a lot of devotion for great melodies, covering a stylistic spectrum from black metal chaos to banging, straight rock riffs. „Urkraft“ was recorded at the Soundbath Studios in Rothenburg at the beginning of last year with the participation of various guest musicians such as Pascal Pfannenschmidt (Munarheim) and Jonas Müller (Boötes Void). Travos from Thormesis is responsible for the production, mixing and mastering and also contributes with some guest vocals.

CELOPHYS - "FRIED CHORDATA"
Release date:
 05-04-2019
Label: Robustfellow Prods.
Genre: Sludge metal
Country: Ukraine
Robustfellow is to release the fourth LP of Ukrainian’s uncompromising sludge metallers Celophys. Having an excellent track-record of robust releases (their second LP was released in 2013 via Emetic Records famous for working with sludge icons and the third one was released by Robustfellow Prods. in 2015), with their new effort, the crushing duo reminds us once again how sludge should sound like. The added speed and aggression show the progression of the outfit and the absence of bass guitar doesn’t stop the band from creating a thick, ear-bleed aggressive sound bound to make a mark in the sonic history. Continuing to mix paleontology with weed-smoking, the distinctiveness of the band’s style becomes even more evident on ‘Fried Chordata’. There’s no reason why a sludge devotee should skip this!   The release will be available as an MC, featuring Robustfellow’s special approach to physical formats, and a digital download on the 5th of April.

ANGARA DEMANA - "TRIPTYCH OF DECAY" 
Release date: 12-02-2019
Label: Self-released
Genre: Black Metal
Country: Austria
Hailing from Iran, Angra Demana is a black metal band formed in late 2007.  "Triptych of Decay" is the band's new EP, which marks a new beginning for Angra Demana, such is the difference between this EP and the band's debut full-length ''Dissolve Into Nothingness'', released in 2012. 
"Triptych of Decay" is a handful of surprises. It's an aggressive and varied ambient black metal album where the band successfully avoids to enter the mined fields of eccentricity or elitist avant-gard. It has the right dosage of melody created by the formidable guitar arrangements and interweaving riffs, and everything is executed with soul and intensity.
All songs written by ''Radman'' and vocals done by Atom Krieg and drums recorded by Jocke Wallgren and Fredrik Widigs.

VIC RECORDS News :
ASTAROTH – “ DEMOS ’93 / ’95 / ‘98”
ASTAROTH was formed in Tampa, Florida in November 1991 by Larry Sapp following his departure from BRUTALITY. This Cd contains Demos 1993, ’95 & ’98, 20 tracks in total. Personell over the years amongst others: Tony Laureano (Brujeria, Nile, Megadeth drum tech) on drums, Larry Sapp (all demos, Brutality), Demian Heftel (Brutality, Nocturnus) on guitars, Jim Coker on drums (Nasty Savage, Brutality). Demo 1993 was produced by Greg Marchak who produced Winter's ‘Into darkness’ album and live production of Savatage/TSO shows was and mixed by Ken Faulkenberry (Acheron, Ulcer, Nocturnus). The 1995's demo ‘Song Of Sorrow’ was again produced by Marchak and mastered at famous Morrisound (Death, Cannibal Corpse) and included the talented Thomas Viator, who later went on to join James Murphy’s Disincarnate. 1998 saw the recording of Burning Christians. Unlike the first 2 ASTAROTH demos which had a Swedish tuned down sound like Carnage and Entombed, ‘Burning Christians’ had more a chaotic Deicide/Possessed sound (Morrisound mastering again). After the 1998 demo, Sapp joined Brutality again. Some Astaroth tracks were used for Brutality then.
CHEMICAL BREATH – “ BEYOND REALITY / BRUTAL VIOLATION”
CHEMICAL BREATH was one of the first extreme metal bands from Belgium. The band was formed in 1990 and released two demos and two full lengths during their eight years of existence. Their first demo ‘Brutal Violation’ was released in 1990. Second demo ‘Beyond Reality’ was recorded and released in 1991. Both demos gained the band a cult following in the death metal underground. The rather complex extreme metal was highly appreciated among fans and led to a two album record deal. This album ‘Beyond Reality / Brutal Violation’ is remastered by Tom Palms (guitarist in Phlebotomized, remasters of Sinister, Infernal Majesty amongst others) and contains 10 tracks.

The Earth screams beneath the yoke of our careless slavery but we ignore the cries, driven by our endless greed we consume without respite, hurtling towards our own destruction in an insane feast of total annihilation. But there are other dimensions than the one we know, other worlds where it is the humans that scream, unheard, for eternity. There are places where we are imprisoned from birth to agonising death, where the offspring of monsters are nourished by our bodies. There are prisons where every waking moment is a nightmare and the only dream is of death, where we suffer in the chains of parasitic slavery...
To visit this alternate universe of human suffering, to stare down into the prisons and feeding chambers, the charnel pits of horror, one has only to be immersed in the boiling cauldron of chaos, extremity and intimidating power that is Body Harvest. Body Harvest were formed in the dying days of 2011 by guitarists Jake Ettle-lles and Gareth Nash, with the sole intent of creating the ultimate in death metal devastation. They wanted insane speed, they wanted unmitigated savagery, they wanted vicious, infectious riffs and unforgettable songs with overwhelming, sinister atmosphere. They created Body Harvest. In the spring of 2014 the first album was released - Futile Creation - a stunning display of superb song writing with a classic death metal sensibility and skin flaying velocity, delivered with fearsome drive and focus. Over the last four years the band have gigged furiously , touring with Mass Infection and Hideous Divinity, playing shows with Exhumed, Anaal Nathrakh, Vital Remains and Gorguts, festivals with Vader, Immolation, Cannibal Corpse and Emperor.
All of that experience and undiminished intent has been poured into the creation of new album - Parasitic Slavery. Released through that powerhouse of brutality, Comatose Music, on May 3rd this is no album for the weak. Recorded under the watchful eye of Jonny Pettersson (Those Who Bring The Torture, Wombbath, Rogga Johansson etc) Parasitic Slavery is one cataclysmic, explosive collection of incredible death metal. As good as Futile Creation was, Parasitic Slavery annihilates it with an imperious magnificence born of absolute self belief. This is the ultimate firestorm. This is the next level of death metal supremacy. This is Body Harvest - Parasitic Slavery!

Italian gothic/doom metallers A DAY IN VENICE have released a new song and video for the track "I am nowhere in time". The new single is taken off from the band's forthcoming album “III” which will be released on April 6th via A Day in Venice's official bandcamp page: https://adayinvenice.bandcamp.com/
The forthcoming album is a broad and symbolic reflection on society, on some aspects of sustainability, on human greed, narcisism and the safety of future generations. Due to their psychological disposition, narcisistic psychopaths hold the reins of humanity in their hands; being driven by the worst predatory instincts, they harm the environment and cause damage for future generations.
In the video for the track "I am nowhere in time", the main theme is the persistent struggle predator – prey, which is presented in an unconventional way. The role of the fisherman is interpreted by the singer Paolo Bembi, whose voice is also giving vocal unity to the album. The fish is interpreted by the Italian actress Roberta Colacino. The video was shot and produced in Trieste (Italy) early this year by Andrej Kralj.

Bismark (ND) - Hailing from the frozen plains of North Dakota, FROSTHELM summon forth a vile brew of thrashend black metal misery; complete with crushing riffs, haunting melodies and catchy hook-laden songwriting, all cloaked in an aura of visceral melody. On sophomore full-length PYRRHIC, that same combination of elements is present, but a level-jump in both songwriting and delivery results in the band's most robust, memorable album to date.
Pyrrhic will be released March 23 on CD, limited edition deluxe vinyl, cassette, and digital formats via Revenger Records.
Stream the new single, "Pisslord," on Bandcamp below: https://frosthelm.bandcamp.com/track/pisslord

Since 2009, this Bismarck based five-piece has steadily picked up steam, earning much praise in the international metal community. The 2012 EP The Northwinds Rend Flesh set the tone for what was to come and was well received by critics. Their debut full length, The Endless Winter, received numerous positive reviews, including being ranked #9 on MetalSucks' 'Best of 2015' list. The acquisition of shredder Billy Zahn helped FROSTHELM push the envelope even further on Pyrrhic.

Legendary UK Thrash Metal band- ONSLAUGHT premieres a brand new track entitled- 'A Perfect Day to Die' that is taken off the forthcoming album whose title will be revealed in the coming days.
Guitarist Nige Rockett comments, "We are really psyched to finally get some new material out to the fans, the first single to come from the new album is entitled 'A Perfect Day to Die' and is a little nod to our sadly departed friends from 'Motorhead' who were a major influence for Onslaught in many many ways. The track has been mixed by 'Jacob Hansen' (Volbeat, Udo, Evergrey) and produced by ourselves and 'Pete Hinton' (Saxon) it sounds so heavy with a super aggressive vibe, it really has a ton of potential..!" He goes on to add, "Right now we're currently working flat out finish the remainder of the writing for the next record, things are sounding so cool, fresh and very brutal."

 NEWS 10.3 2019

Maniacs! es ist an der Zeit eine Band zu zelebrieren, die uns 2010 das letzte Mal besucht hat. Für den ein oder anderen könnte dieses Booking die absolute KRÖNUNG darstellen. Ganz nebenbei sei erwähnt, dass es nur noch schlappe 6 Monate bis zum nächsten PARTY.SAN METAL OPEN AIR sind - holt euch lieber gestern als morgen eure Tickets! https://www.cudgel.de/Tickets/
Wir schreiben das Jahr 1999 und ein Album mit dem wegweisenden Titel "HELL IS HERE" erblickt via Metal Blade Records das Licht der Welt. In den nächsten fünf Jahren sollen weitere - unglaubliche 6 - Alben folgen. THE CROWN aus Schweden sind in einen wahren Releaserausch geraten und ballern eine Full Lenght nach der anderen raus, bis 2004 schließlich die Lichter ausgehen. 2011 kehrte die Band erstarkt zurück und legte 2018 mit COBRA SPEED VENOM ein absolutes Bollwerk des schwedisch geprägten Death Metals (mit ein paar Thrasheinschlägen) vor. Wir freuen uns jetzt schon auf diese Rückkehr!

TERRIBLE HEADACHE – “DER ROTE BARON”
Genre: Thrash Metal / Rock
Label: Boersma Records
Vertrieb: Edel Germany GmbH
VÖ: 17.05.2019
Was wäre wenn? – Das dachten sich auch die 4 Musiker der ehemaligen Thrash-Metal Formation Terrible Headache aus Merzig im Saarland. Und sowurde kurzerhand nach einer
ursprünglichen Bandauflösung im Jahr 1998 einesehr lange Bandpause.
 Im Frühjahr 2015 trafen sich die Bandmitglieder (Markus Merfeld – Gitarre & Vocals / Christion Busch – Gitarre & Vocals / Ralf Krier – Bass & Vocals / Timo Zenner – Schlagzeug) zu einer spontanen Jamsession um die alten Songs nochmal aufleben zu lassen. Im Zuge eines ausverkauften Reunion Konzertes wurde schnell klar, dass es endlich wieder weitergehen musste. Schon nach wenigen Wochen waren so viele Ideen gereift, dass die Band anfing auch wieder neue Songs zu schreiben.
In kürzester Zeit entstanden somit 10 neue Titel, die bis heute nach und nach in die Live Konzerte eingebunden werden.
Die Songs bilden die gesamte Palette des Schaffens und der Vorlieben der einzelnen Bandmitglieder ab. Aggressive Gitarren, treibende Grooves und der abwechslungsreiche Gesang der 3 Sänger bilden nach wie vor das Grundgerüst von Terrible Headache. Ihr Genre bewegt sich zwischen Punk, Thrash-Metal und Rock, gelegentlich sind auch einige Death-Metal Einflüsse deutlich rauszuhören. Um das Ganze noch etwas interessanter zu machen schreibt die Band ausschließlich deutschsprachige Texte und fokussiert dabei überwiegend sozialkritische Themen, immer am Puls der Zeit. Somit bleiben sie sich seit der Gründung 1990 treu und liefern mit „Der Rote Baron“ ihr 2. Album ab, indem deutlich neue Einflüsse zu hören sind, aber eben auch eine gute Prise Thrash-Metal aus den Gründertagen. Der Rote Baron kommt ehrlich und ungezwungen dahergeflogen und ist ab dem 17.05.2019 erhältlich. Die Veröffentlichung erfolgt weltweit unter dem Essener Label Boersma-Records.

Pünktlich zum erwachenden Frühling melden wir uns mit tollen Neuigkeiten aus dem Winterschlaf zurück: Es gibt Verstärkung bei NOIZGATE Records!
Wir freuen uns riesig, Euch unseren Neuzugang THE TEX AVERY SYNDROME vorzustellen.
Die Frankfurter Fünfercombo um Powerfrontfrau und Shouterin Laura Gierl braust im offenen Cabrio auf der Überholspur den Highway zwischen Modern Metal und Hardcore entlang, nimmt unterwegs auch mal klassische Rockeinflüsse mit, liebt und lebt die Wucht und den Groove, die ein lebendiger, ursprünglicher Sound zu entfalten vermag, lässt sich von dieser Energie schieben - und reißt mit: Eine TTAS-Show knallt lauter als eine Ladung Comic-Dynamit, ist irrer als die Looney Tunes und mindestens so hyperaktiv und atemlos wie eine Roadrunner-Verfolgungsjagd! Wie gut, dass es diese Dröhnung schon bald in Albumlänge gibt: Nach dem erfolgreichen EP-Debüt 'Wolfcity' (Finest Noise, 2015) planen THE TEX AVERY SYNDROME nämlich für 2019 ihre mit Spannung erwartete erste Full-Length-Veröffentlichung bei NOIZGATE Records.
Ihr müsst Euch aber gar nicht allzu lang gedulden. Den ersten Satz heiße Ohren gibt es bereits am 15.03.2019
(VÖ): 'RAGE GENE' heißt das Gourmet-Earcandy im Digitalsingle-Format, serviert nebst knackigem Video.
'Wir haben uns ein Label gewünscht, bei dem man unsere Motivation versteht und unterstützt und sind überzeugt, mit NOIZGATE Records genau den richtigen Partner gefunden zu haben', so Frontfrau Laura. 'Wir haben uns gleich akzeptiert und bestens aufgehoben gefühlt und sind wirklich geflasht, dass es jetzt endlich
so richtig losgeht!'
Vielen Dank Laura, so warme Worte sind natürlich Musik in unseren Ohren. Auch bei NOIZGATE Records sind wir auf ganzer Linie überzeugt vom Potential unseres Neuzugangs, freuen uns über die Verstärkung an der Damenfront und auf die gemeinsame Zusammenarbeit!
Übrigens habt Ihr am 16.03.2019 im Nachtleben in Frankfurt direkt Gelegenheit, Euch von den Livequalitäten des Quintetts zu überzeugen, denn dann feiern THE TEX AVERY SYNDROME mit Unterstützung von The Disaster Area, Knüppelfritze und Apart From Us Singlerelease und Signing.

WHISKEY RITUAL – “ BLACK METAL ULTRAS”
Genre: Black/Thrash Metal
Label: Folter Records
Vertrieb: Alive
VÖ: 26.04.2019
WHISKEY RITUAL, das ist Wut, das ist Chaos, und das ist vor allem eins: verdammt unterhaltsamer Black Metal. Die Italiener, bei denen unter anderem Musiker von Forgotten Tomb, Caronte, Selvmoord und L.O.S.T. aktiv sind oder waren, gründeten sich 2008. Ursprünglich sollte die Band lediglich ein Side-Projekt der einzelnen Musiker sein, doch der Wahnsinn im Hause WHISKEY RITUAL war ansteckend, einnehmend und machte die Jungs abhängig. Schnell wurde daraus eine Vollzeitband, die mit „Black 'n' Roll“ 2009 ihr erstes irrwitziges Lebenszeichen in die Welt schoss, welches seinem Titel alle Ehre macht. Denn WHISKEY RITUAL kombinieren auch auf ihren kommenden Veröffentlichungen die Dunkelheit und den Hass des Black Metals mit einer gehörigen Prise Rock 'n' Roll, der zu unterhaltsamen Hymnen über Drogen, Prostituierte, Alkohol und natürlich Satan führt – getreu dem Motto „Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll“, aber mit einem grinsenden Gehörten am Steuer. „In Goat We Trust“ (2010), „Necronomicon“ (2012) und „Blow With The Devil“ (2015) ebneten denn höllischen Pfad zu dem Punkt, an dem WHISKEY RITUAL heute stehen. 
Einige Line-up-Wechsel, ein bisschen Feinjustierung im Songwriting und ein neues Label im Rücken haben den Wahnsinn aber eher beflügelt als ihn zu lindern. „Black Metal Ultras“ ist eine auf 30 Minuten gebannte, selbstbewusste Kampfansage, die alles vereint: Brutalität, Hass, Gewalt, Rauschzustände und natürlich eine gehörige Portion Badass Rock 'n' Roll. Passend dazu gibt’s ein Cover der legendären TURBONEGRO zu bestaunen, falls ihr dann noch steht. Prost

Wir heben mit meiner eigenen Band LONG DISTANCE CALLING ein neues Festival aus der Taufe, das GOLDEN SILENCE FESTIVAL,
Reden ist Silber - Schweigen ist Gold. Als Genre übergreifender Live-Event will das „GOLDEN SILENCE FESTIVAL“ rein instrumental agierenden Acts erstmals eine eigene Bühne geben. Tatsächlich sogar zwei: am 2. November 2019 wird „GOLDEN SILELNCE“ sein Festivaldebüt im Münsteraner Skater’s Palace geben und dort ein bewusst abwechslungsreiches Line-Up parallel in zwei Hallen präsentieren. „Mit der Idee möchten wir der Tatsache Rechnung tragen, dass Musik ohne Gesang einen ganz eigenen Reiz hat“, so die Veranstalter Jan Hoffmann und Janosch Rathmer. „Für viele ist Instrumentalmusik ein stiller Angelpunkt in einem Sturm vieler Worte“.
Im ersten Festivaljahr werden LONG DISTANCE CALLING den Headliner des eintägigen Festivals stellen. Deren europaweit erfolgreicher Postrock gibt aber keinesfalls die stilistische Marschrichtung des „GOLDEN SILENCE FESTIVAL“ vor. „Wir suchen auch Acts, die überhaupt nicht mit Rock oder Metal assoziiert werden“, so Hoffmann. „Uns schwebt dabei eine gesunde Mischung aus experimentellen und eingängigen Sounds vor. Natürlich sind die Übergänge zur elektronischen Musik fließend, aber Handgemachtes steht im Zentrum unserer Vision.“
Einmal mehr zieht Münster als weltoffene Metropole Westfalens mit dem „GOLDEN SILENCE FESTIVAL“ Vielfalt aus ganz Europa an. Die bestätigten Künstler sind LONG DISTANCE CALLING, EF (SWE), MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY (LUX), KUF, CURLS & NODS.

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

CHALLENGER – “TURNED TO DUST”  ( MCD )
The very first sign of life by Slovenian Challenger. Yet, as their members are experienced musicians and ex members of acts such as black heavy metal beast Vigilance (their first singer who recorded “Steeds of Time”) or progressive thrashers Teleport, you will be taken aback by their great take at heavy speed metal. Drawing big time influences from the unmatched scene of the NWOBHM, this 4-piece creates their own style. Expect to hear more from Challenger!
Comes with a sticker.

OTHUUM - "THE ASTRAL HORROR"
Release date: 05-01-2019
Label: Self-released
Genre: Doom Metal
Country: Germany
Germany's Othuum presents their debut full-length, "The Astral Horror"; a doom metal effort with elements from classical metal and influenced by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, which is reflected in the overall concept of the album, including the titles, the layout and even the band's name.
 With "The Astral Horror", the band's message is very simple: to create music they all enjoy listening to. To be artistically active without the need to preach anything and without portraying a deeper message. If anything, "The Astral Horror" is an invite to all the listeners to become aware of one's own insignificance and uselessness in the face of the immensity and complexity of the whole universe and what lies beyond.

HELEVORN - "AAMAMATA"
Release date: 23-01-2019
Genre: Doom Metal
Label: Solitude/BadMoodMan
Country: Spain
The band started in 1999 in Palma (Mallorca, Spain), with Samuel (guitars), Josep (vocals) giving the rst steps and completed the actual line-up with Xavi (drums), Kike (keyboards), Sandro (guitars) and Guillem Morey (bass). With the rst nished songs they recorded a promo cd called “Prelude” in winter of 2000. It was their presentation letter, written with a Gothic-Doom style with female vocals, reminding bands like TRISTANIA or THEATRE OF TRAGEDY, and with a very good acceptance in the underground press.
After few years of intense work, the band worked with new songs, and they decided to record it at Ona Digital Studios (Mallorca), and mastered at Finnvox Studios (Finland) by Mika Jussila. The nal result was a new Cd called “Fragments”, self released in October 2005, sounding more solid, and get also transmit a dark, heavy and melancholic sound. “Fragments” has obtained excellent reviews in several Metal Magazines, then, HELEVORN was touring around Spain since November 2005 in cities like Madrid, Valencia, Alicante, Burgos, Tarragona, Valladolid and Guadalajara.
The band was asked to appear on “December Songs” a tribute to Katatonia, released in December 12th 2006 by Northern Silence Productions.
In November 2007 the band toured with SWALLOW THE SUN in their rst Spanish tour including one gig in Portugal, then, Helevorn had the privilege to play at Dutch Doom Days 6 (Rotterdam, Netherlands).
2009 means the recording of our second studio album “Forthcoming Displeasures”, recorded in March at Urban Studios in Palma, produced by Jens Bogren and Johan Ornborg, also producers of bands like KATATONIA, OPETH, DRACONIAN, PARADISE LOST, etc... taking an important step in their musical style, emphasizing a more intense and heavy sound, being more forceful and deep, becoming second best Doom Metal album of the year at Metalstorm.net
The russian label BadMoodMan Music released the album on February 2010, getting excellent reviews, making the band to introduce themselves into the international scene, forming part of one of the most important festivals in the gothic music and culture, the Wave Gotik Treffen (Leipzig, GER) and Devilstone Open Air (LT), Patior Ergo Sum (Prage, CZE), Madrid is The Dark Fest and playing again at Dutch Doom Days X (NL). Also in 2011 the band played in Barcelona with MOONSPELL in their european tour.
The 22 of september 2014 the band releases their new third album entitled “Compassion Forlorn” (edited again by Solitude/BadMoodMan), recorded and mixed at Psychosomatic Studios by M.A. Riutort and mastered by Jens Bogren. Eight tracks full of human decay from our most deepest sentiments, composing an album that has returned the meaning of an evolution in the compositions and in the band's sound reaching excellent reviews and placing the band in a good position in the Doom Metal worldwide, also thanks to the “Burden Me” video release.
After the release of “Compassion Forlorn” the band played in several gigs and festivals over Europe such as Gothoom Open Air (Slovakia), Metal Over Malta, Doom Rotten Death (Berlin, GER), Madrid is the Dark Fest IV, supporting Draconian in London, touring around Eastern Europe during ten days supporting the Danish band Saturnus, Full Metal Holidays (organized by Wacken), etc.
And it’s been during the summer of 2018 that the band has recorded its fourth full-length album, doing the same formula as the previous one (Psychosomatic Studios with M.A Riutort + Jens Bogren mastering the disc). The result is ‘Aamamata’, that is the song that Death sings every day in the Mediterranean Sea, which has become a desolate pit for human lives. The album is going to be released on January 23rd of 2019 again with Solitude/BadMoodMan. It’s a bit more epic, more intense and it keeps the personality of the previous albums. The contributions have been great. Heike Langhans of Draconian has sung in a song, like Júlia Colom, and Jaume Compte played the bouzouky and baglama. Guitar solos played by Pedro Zubiri.

DIAMOND HEAD – the Stourbridge, England born New Wave of British Heavy Metal pioneers – return to the world stage with a new album. THE COFFIN TRAIN is at once fresh and exuberant while also being a stone-cold classic slice of old school heavy metal excellence.  Is it packed with the sort of riff-fueled power that founding member (and riff LORD) Brian Tatler led a genre and influenced the odd band or two with? It’s electric for sure… and then some.
The album leading single, ‘Belly of The Beast’, is a ripping signal of intent with huge, catchy, crunchy riffs coupled with Rasmus Bom Andersen’s fiery vocals and married to a steam-engine old school tempo which will have headbangers gleefully reaching for their air guitars and aspirin. It is both furious and thickly intense.
Listen to the song here:
https://youtu.be/BbnmxqdtTV4
Remarks Brian: “Belly of the Beast is the lead track on the album and the first single. This is classic Diamond Head, bringing to mind songs like Helpless and The Prince. It’s a very exciting song to play and really pumps up your adrenalin. It’s in your face the whole way though.”
Singer Ras adds: “It’s a song about personal demons, everyone carries at least one through their life.  Don’t be hasty to judge people, for we all have a battle inside.”
Formed in 1976 under the riff-rolling leadership of guitarist Brian Tatler, Diamond Head would quickly establish themselves as a vanguard of the exploding New Wave of British Heavy Metal scene. With their genre-defining debut album Lightning to The Nations, Diamond Head became the band who influenced and opened gates for many metal bands.
“All along we wanted to make sure we didn’t lose sight of what we call ‘The Brief’” explains Tatler, “I would never want to deny our NWOBHM style and sound, that’s what originally got me excited and Diamond Head noticed. And I still enjoy the creative journey we go on.”
The Coffin Train, Diamond Head’s eighth studio album, is a glorious testimony to Brian Tatler and Rasmus Bom Andersens’ masterful ability to create the flavours necessary for prime Diamond Head music.
“Rasmus is a big part of why the album, and band, sound like we do,” affirms Tatler.  “He has a fantastic vocal range, knows exactly what to do with his voice and is incredibly knowledgeable about it!”
The Coffin Train was written on the road and recorded in several different places.  Guitars, bass and vocals at Vigo Studios in Walsall, drums at Circle Studios in Birmingham, and the album was produced and mixed at Ras’ Raw Sound Studio in London.  
When it comes to the concepts behind The Coffin Train, Tatler left the heart to Ras, who being a thinker and life-conceptualiser, doesn’t lack sources of inspiration.  Diamond Head have not only managed to create an album of pure heavy metal intensity, they have created a timeless aural statement which feels destined to see them delivering both The Coffin Train and DH 2.0 to more fans than ever.
Is it really that electric you might ask? Oh yes it certainly is!
Excited to bring The Coffin Train to the world, Diamond Head will be touring Europe for most of 2019 and are confirmed on the line-up of two very special UK shows with NWOBHM giants, SAXON, which will take place on October 19th at London’s iconic Hammersmith and October 20th at the O2 Apollo in Manchester.  
21st June – Hellfest, France
25 –28th July – Camp Bestival, UK
25 –27th July – Rock & Blues Festival, UK  
24th August – Stonedeaf Festival, UK
19th October – Hammersmith Apollo, UK*
20th October – o2 Apollo Manchester, UK*
7-10th November – Hard Rock Hell Festival, Wales, UK
* Supporting Saxon

RAGNHILD play a very distinct style of Death Metal fusing element of Melodies and Viking Metal but offer a very unique sound that defines their brand. Their new album 'TAVERN TALES' is slated for a March release. The first track of the album- 'Under the Red Sky' speaks of a powerful theme and is complimented by a strong video that holds true to the nature of the song. Perhaps, that's the speciality of it. Commenting about the song, the guitarist Shardul comments  "The Songs in the album have been composed with the general idea of how Melodic Death Metal comprising of Nordic/ Celtic melodies when mixed with heavier riffs and vocals sound. The lyrics that we wrote are basically out of our own imagination of various incidents that took place in our history. 'Under the Red Sky' is written with similar ideas. The lyrics talk about a fleet of soldiers that were betrayed by one of our own and by the grace of the gods, they found out about the ambush that awaits".
Track list:
Battle on My Grave  
A Viking Mosh
We Will March
Glory of our mighty king
Under The Red Sky
Stronghold
Ragnhild
Tavern Tales (title track)
Death of a warrior

Since their 2008 debut, “ Infernal Torture “, MEATHOOK have been synonymous with the cruellest, most bludgeoning forms of brutal death metal, with each release being a relentless, merciless assault on the listener. Yet, no matter the undoubted potency of previous releases, CRYPTS, COFFINS, CORPSES sees Meathook delivering new levels of sheer pummelling force. This release is the pure distillation of everything that brutal death metal was ever meant to be. When you step across the threshold into this dark world of flesh temples, coiled entrails, cauldrons of corpses and torment it’s one long, crazed ride of screaming horror until you are finally released from the hook.
“...Meathook made a massively heavy album, and that’s a fact” – METAL TEMPLE
“... brutal creativity, catchy parts and putrid fucking atmosphere!” – SICK REVIEWS
"...sickening, abrasive, savage assault...” – MOSHVILLE TIMES

CERBERON – “CERBERON”
Cerberon are one of those rare bands who have a sound entirely their own, an atmosphere that sets them apart from the others. The pace of the songs is grimly measured, the unhurried march of a beast with total confidence in its power and ability to overcome and destroy completely, a sinister apex predator supreme. There is a sense of fearsome madness held, barely, in check, a seething rabid rage surging beneath the skin. This is heavy metal that has absorbed all the lessons of each wave of extremity that has crashed over the scene, picking the flesh from the bones of each tide of savagery, but never losing its iron heart.
"...muscular, armour plated riffs..." - ZERO TOLERANCE MAGAZINE

ORACLE – “LIVE AT BLOODSTOCK”
On Saturday August 11th 2018 Oracle exploded onto the New Blood stage at the UKs premiere metal festival, Bloodstock Open Air. They owned Bloodstock that day, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts, minds and memories of all who saw them. Vocalist Jason Kerr was a man possessed from the moment he stepped out in front of the Bloodstock crowd and the riffs from Connor McDonald and Jake Dornan just kept coming, a relentless onslaught of irresistible, gritty metal. Behind it all drummer Rhys Fraser and bassist Chief brought the thunder, crushing ribcages and imploding internal organs. And the whole glorious performance was captured on audio and film.

CRITICAL EXTRAVASATION – “ MORBID EXISTENCE”
CRITICAL EXTRAVASATION are a very young and promising band from Russia, who are proving once again to have one of the most exciting and fresh scenes in Death Metal. Upon first hearing this short teaser of a release, I felt like a 12 year old discovering Death Metal for the first time !  Morbid Existence exudes a youthful exuberance and hunger that is not often heard these days. The band take their influences from many in early Death / Thrash, but notably Pestilence and Morgoth (whom they expertly cover on this demo) come to mind.
Redefining Darkness are very proud and excited to bring you this release Digitally / Cassette this April!

NEW SINGLE FROM UPCOMING HELHEIM ALBUM REVEALED. NEW TOUR DATES ADDED :  Dark Essence Records have today released a second single from HELHEIM's upcoming album "RIGNIR".  As can probably have been guessed by its title, which translated means "Rain",  the new album has been inspired by the weather in their notoriously rainy home town of Bergen, and the new single, titled "Kaldr",  takes a look at another aspect of the local climate - "Cold". 
"Kaldr" can be streamed or downloaded from
 https://orcd.co/kaldr
Alternatively, you can listen to it on YouTube at  https://youtu.be/ATpKLPsNt4I
Rignir" was recorded at the Conclave & Earshot Studios in Bergen, with long-time collaborators Bjornar E. Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR) mixing and producing the album  alongside the band , and Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED) handling the mastering. 
Ole André Farstad makes a guest appearance on the album, playing Lap Steel  Guitar on the track Ísuð, and, with artwork by H'grimnir, tracklisting for "Rignir" is as follows:
1. Rignir
2. Kaldr
3. Hagl
4. Snjóva
5. Ísuð
6. Vindarblástr
7. Stormviðri
8. Vetrarmegin
HELHEIM have once again turned to their Norse heritage when writing the poems that form the lyrics for "Rignir", drawing inspiration from the ljóðaháttr, an Old Norse alliterative verse form used largely in the Eddas.   As the band recently explained:
 This time around we have been very inspired by the local weather of Bergen. The autumn and winter seasons can summon the darkest of feelings within oneself, and this backdrop served as the fertilizer that would germinate the seeds of our lyrical ideas. Exploring the darkness of nature as something that can be seen, as well as sensed,  it became a canvas where the pen drew words that rose from the depths of solemnity and alienation. Although each track depicts an ever growing intensity of suffering and loss, there’s still a  dialogue on how to maintain some sort of sanity or inner peace.
Let the rain fall heavily upon you.
To mark the release of "Rignir", HELHEIM will embark on a European tour alongside VULTURE INDUSTRIES and Dark Essence Records label-mates MADDER MORTEM.  Titled the "Strange Rain" tour, it will be the first time the band has toured for some considerable time.  Routing is as follows:

EUGENIC DEATH was formed in late 2010 in Greensboro, North Carolina. The band name was chosen to draw attention to society's overall view, mistreatment and neglect of the poor.
Jonathan McCanless (lead guitarist) had long desired to get his music into mass circulation and decided in late 2010 that the only way to accomplish this was to start a band with the most dedicated and talented musicians he could find. The natural choice for vocals was Keith Davis, whose voice is reminiscent of legends like Chuck Billy of Testament and Max Cavalera of Sepultura. Jonathan had previously been in another local band with Keith and knew his capacity for producing harsh sounding thrash vocals.
The other member of that original band was Shane Lucas, a bassist whose style is heavily influenced by Steve Harris of Iron Maiden. His creative bass parts harmonized perfectly with Jonathan's guitars.
Unsure of where to find a drummer Jonathan turned to Keith and Shane to find the perfect fit. Keith immediately offered Ian Pasquini, from High Point, NC. Influenced by Mastodon, Slayer, and Dying Fetus. Ian earned his place as Eugenic Death's first drummer.
In 2012, Eugenic Death's debut album Crimes Against Humanity was released by Heaven and Hell Records. A year later Ian Pasquini parted ways with the band due to personal reasons. The following year Shane Lucas also parted ways with the band.
In 2014 the recording process for Eugenic Death's second album Under The Knife began. Geoff Lapenta was recruited to perform drums on the album. Jonathan McCanless on guitars and bass, and Keith Davis once again on vocals.
The second album took four years to complete and was recorded in many different locations around the country, including The Lodge out of Indianapolis and Bunker Sound out of Chapel Hill, NC. Engineered by Steven Raets and John E Wooten IV. Mixed by Steven Raets and John E Wooten IV. Mastered by Steven Raets. Cover art created by Marija Vilotijevic, model: Courtney Simonds.
EUGENIC DEATH is:
Jonathan McCanless – guitar/bass
Keith Davis – vocals

WARRIOR PATH -  “WARRIOR PATH”
GENRE:     Epic Heavy/Power Metal
RELEASE: March 1st 2019
Warrior Path is not another super-group, nor another one-man project simply featuring some high-profile guests…
This debut album is the final destination and, at the same time, the beginning of a glorious music journey for Greek songwriter/guitarist Andreas Sinanoglou.
Joined by producer & musician Bob Katsionis (Firewind/Outloud/Serious Black) and one of Europe’s best and upcoming singers Yannis Papadopoulos (Beast In Black), Andreas created a milestone album both for him and the genre of Epic/Power Heavy Metal.
According to producer Bob Katsionis:
“On our very first meeting in my studio, I asked Andreas if he brought any demos, rehearsal material or a Cubase/Guitar Pro project. He told me: “Bob, I have the whole album in my head since I was 18 years old. I have never ever recorded anything, and anyone who tried to help me, failed. I know exactly how I want this album to sound like and -for a strange reason- I’m sure you’re gonna make it work”
Then he picked up one of my acoustic guitars and started playing and singing. He didn’t even stop for a second. All the songs, one by one, were laying there in front of me waiting to become reality. Three hours later, we completed the first demo and then we both knew that it would be a pleasure to work together to make a great record.”
After the recording of the music by Andreas (Guitars), Dave Rundle (Drums) and Bob (Bass/Keyboards & some guitar solos) it was time to find the voice that could sing this magnificent epic tale.
“Andreas was straight and simple” says Bob Katsionis. “He told me that there is only one singer out there that he would really like to have on his album and this one was no other than Yannis Papadopoulos of Beast In Black, as he believed that he has the potential to sing on an even more powerful & old-school way than what we were used to hear from him. Some e-mails later, the deal was on.”
Yannis recorded the whole album in his personal studio in Thessaloniki, Greece, and then it was mixed by Bob and mastered by Nasos Nomikos at VU Productions, Piraeus, GR, achieving a sound that refers to the 80’s era productions but leaving out the simulated retro atmosphere and fake underground vibe as it is crystal clear, powerful and well performed.
The band’s self-titled debut counts over an hour’s worth of 10 Heavy-Power-Melodic metal anthems that tell different stories about War, Pirates & Warriors that can all have an allegoric approach to modern day’s personal struggles as well.
The album’s custom artwork is created by Bulgarian artist Dimitar Nikolov (Ross The Boss, Sacral Rage, Wisdoom and more) under the guidance of Andreas’ requirements.
“Warrior Path” will be available via Symmetric Records on March 1st 2019 in deluxe glossy digipak+booklet edition through the label’s Bandcamp page and in all digital stores.

VARGSHEIM – „ SÖHNE DER SONNE „
Schlaflosen" liegt mit „Söhne der Sonne“ das vierte Full Lenght Album der Würzburger VARGSHEIM vor. Die Bandselbst, welche bereits 2005 gegründet wurde und deren Musiker unter anderem auch als Live-Band von Imperium Dekadenz aktiv sind, tritt hierbei mit dem Anspruch an, sich von Album zu Album zu steigern. "Söhne der Sonne" vereint den Charme des rockig rotzigen Vorgängers und besinnt sich dabei gleichzeitig auch ein Stück weit auf das konzeptionelle Songwriting der ersten Platten zurück - und vereint dabei die Trademarks ihrer bisherigen Werke auf einen gemeinsamen Nenner. Herausgekommen ist eine schwarzmetallische Reise die textlich von Selbstüberschätzung und Selbsteinsicht, von menschlicher Überheblichkeit und dem Zahn der Zeit handelt und diese Themen in ein musikalisches Fundament bettet, welches an emotionaler Intensität den Inhalten gerecht wird.

BESTA – “ ETERNO RANCOR”
"Eterno Rancor" - the title is program. Featuring members of SINISTRO and REDEMPTUS, the Portuguese of BESTA are disillusioned and pissed off. They express their anger with violent eruptions and merciless blastbeats. The band's second full length feeds on pulverizing and skull fracturing punk/grindcore, raucous landscapes, and outright honesty. The quartet from Lisbon is dedicated to its extreme sound and unreservedly lives out its critical and self-determined DIY attitude.  
Escaping from the minds’ dark places, the Portuguese band takes inspiration from horror movies, simple-effective punk rock, raw death metal, and old school grindcore. Imagine Bad Brains mutating alongside Napalm Death, and Looking For An Answer – extended by its own twist, which doesn't originate from the Portuguese language of the lyrics alone.
Since 2012, BESTA have not only placed nine releases in the extreme underground, but have also played countless shows with genre giants such as Napalm Death, Cattle Decapitation, Massgrave, Deathrite, Obituary, or Eyehategod.

MARIANAS REST - "RUINS"
Release date: 26 -04-2019
Genre: Melancholic Death Metal
Country: Finland
Label: Inverse Records
The dark shores of the Baltic Sea are home to gloomy melancholy and a place where many sad stories have come to an inevitable end. Still, in rare occasions new life emerges from the sea. Finnish coastal town of Kotka is the birth place of Marianas Rest, a band whose metal is forged in crushing pressure of the deep. Formed in 2013, the band dredges bottom mud and feeds on Scandinavian distress.
"Ruins" is an analogy for a broken mind. The record starts from the breaking point and progresses towards an inevitable end. It is emotional, depressive, melodic and heavy. The songs generally evolve throughout their length and reach their peak in the end. Music is a good way to vent off steam that eventually generates inside you when you grind your way through modern life. It is a good excuse to meet with friends and have a good time. To forget all the depressive shit that is going on around you.
Line-up:
Nico Mänttäri - guitar
Harri Sunila - guitar
Niko Lindman - bass
Jaakko Mäntymaa - vocals

Biography
Apes Of God is a Death Thrash Metal band from El Salvador that was formed in September 2015 by Rodrigo Salguero (guitar) and Cesar Canales (vocals). In 2016, the first album of the band was released, a demo titled "Holy Spirit" and consequently the band made its debut in November 2016 when Carlos Sanglas was included in the band as drummer.
For the year 2017 the band releases its second production, an EP titled "Fuck Off!" under the Salvadoran record label Megarock Records. This EP has the first official video of the band "Obsessive & Compulsive". Consequently, after the incorporation of Rob Malcoms (bassist) to the band, Apes Of God promoted this EP in an exhaustive way playing in many concerts in the interior of El Salvador. Parallel to the live performances that were being made, the band was recording the third album that would be released in 2018.
In January of 2018 the band revealed the track "Nothing To Believe" with which they officially announced the release of their first full-length album entitled "Misanthropy". This CD has the collaboration of Diva Satanica (vocalist of Bloodhunter and Outreach), Aaron Valdez (guitarist live of Apes Of God during the beginning of 2017) and Gabriel Puente (drummer of Inhuman and Curse The Flesh) who would be the new drummer of Apes Of God after the departure of Carlos Sanglas.
In June 2018 Apes Of God announces the future release of a 5'way Split for the year 2019 with the Mexican bands Abruptus, Demonic Manifestation, Grotesque Deity and Remains. At the same time the band between the period of March and June ended the recording of the EP titled "Procession Of Death" next to launch in 2019.

FOUL BODY AUTOPSY – “THE UNQUIET DEAD”
Genre:
Melodic Death Metal/Thrash Metal
For fans of: At The Gates | Amon Amarth | Dark Tranquillity
Label: Independent Release
Release Date: 06/03/19
"When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth" - George A. Romero, Dawn Of The Dead
Welcome back to the world of Foul Body Autopsy, a world that lies in ruins, human civilisation brought to its knees. This is post apocalyptic earth, wrapped in a deadly cloak of radiation poisoning, infested with warped, mutated monsters - a playground for the dead.
In March of 2018 Foul Body Autopsy released the ambitious eight track concept album This Machine Kills Zombies, inspired by the work of director George A. Romero. Through the feral, hungry riffs of songs like 'Ghost Ships' and 'Circling The Drain' we experienced the desperate terror, the brutal fight for survival in a world overrun by ravenous zombies. Now, a year on, we return to that world of death. The fight is over and the planet belongs to the flesh eaters. The last remnants of humanity have established a safe place, a last bastion of defence against the unending tide of monstrosities. They call this place Sanctuary. The Unquiet Dead tells the story of one man's desperate journey through the wastelands - searching for Sanctuary.
The three powerful songs that make up this new EP retain the crisp, biting riffs that characterised This Machine Kills Zombies but they bring additional layers of atmosphere to the mix. There is a depth and maturity to the compositions that surpasses anything that Foul Body Autopsy have released before. Despite the relative brevity of The Unquiet Dead you feel every step of the protagonist's lonely journey through the desolation, with the haunting lead work that augments a track like 'Searching For Sanctuary' adding unexpected emotion to this collection of remarkable songs. Produced, mixed and mastered by Russ Russell (Amorphis, Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir, Megadeth etc) The Unquiet Dead also has the fabulous sound quality that the songs deserve.
Since Tom Reynolds seized his guitar in one hand, his drum machine in the other and brought Foul Body Autopsy to life back in 2010 he has continually produced exciting, neck-snapping music - but The Unquiet Dead really is the most ambitious and brilliantly realised release yet to bear the Foul Body Autopsy name. Like the zombies that roam his vision of post apocalyptic earth, Tom Reynolds' The Unquiet Dead will leave you hungry for more...

Today nihilistic death-grind purveyor FEED THEM DEATH premieres the official lyric video of the gut-wrenching new track “Exposed Parading Dissent” via the official media partners listed below.
https://www.deaf-forever.de/videopremiere-feed-them-death    (DE)
https://powerofmetal.dk/exclusive/feed-them-death-releases-new-official-video-exposed-parading-dissent     (DK)
https://www.kronosmortus.com/slider/feed-them-death-exposed-parading-dissent-szoveges-videopremier/      (HU)
The song is taken from the band's debut album "NO SOLUTION / DISSOLUTION": it is the first full-length release by FEED THEM DEATH, the old school death-grind solo project created by Void - founding member of legendary Italian death metallers ANTROPOFAGUS back in 1996 and mastermind behind the seminal "No Waste of Flesh" (1999) and "Alive is Good... Dead is Better" (2001).
FEED THEM DEATH is committed to oppose to the bullshit and hedonistic mentality that seem to have misshaped the anatomy of the extreme music since the turn of the millennium: its releases will be concise, its songs short. Lyrics are also angry and relevant, bridging the gap with a past in which extreme music had something meaningful to say, before the whole parading dissent began and the underground lost its way.
Featuring many collaborations including Argento (Spite Extreme Wing D.M., ex-Antropofagus), Christian Montagna (ex-Traitor, ex-Cast Thy Eyes, BUNE, editor of Son of Flies Webzine) and Deimos (Will’o’Wisp), FEED THEM DEATH first release blasts 12 tracks of uncompromising brutality.
New chaos from the old depths of extreme music. No intros, no outros, no solos, no bullshit. This is just pure fucking death-grind. A must for fans of Terrorizer, Brutal Truth, Napalm Death, Nasum and Misery Index.
"No Solution / Dissolution" is out now via GrimmDistribution and Exalted Woe Records.
Tracklist:
1. Cadavoracity I
2. Exposed Parading Dissent
3. Bloodshed Theatre
4. The Horrific Balance
5. Terrific Gods Caravan
6. First Time Dead
7. Prosperity / Captivity
8. Doctrine of Approximation
9. Penance in the Wrong Direction

2009 means the recording of our second studio album “Forthcoming Displeasures”, recorded in March at Urban Studios in Palma, produced by Jens Bogren and Johan Ornborg, also producers of bands like KATATONIA, OPETH, DRACONIAN, PARADISE LOST, etc... taking an important step in their musical style, emphasizing a more intense and heavy sound, being more forceful and deep, becoming second best Doom Metal album of the year at Metalstorm.net
The russian label BadMoodMan Music released the album on February 2010, getting excellent reviews, making the band to introduce themselves into the international scene, forming part of one of the most important festivals in the gothic music and culture, the Wave Gotik Treffen (Leipzig, GER) and Devilstone Open Air (LT), Patior Ergo Sum (Prage, CZE), Madrid is The Dark Fest and playing again at Dutch Doom Days X (NL). Also in 2011 the band played in Barcelona with MOONSPELL in their european tour.
The 22 of september 2014 the band releases their new third album entitled “Compassion Forlorn” (edited again by Solitude/BadMoodMan), recorded and mixed at Psychosomatic Studios by M.A. Riutort and mastered by Jens Bogren. Eight tracks full of human decay from our most deepest sentiments, composing an album that has returned the meaning of an evolution in the compositions and in the band's sound reaching excellent reviews and placing the band in a good position in the Doom Metal worldwide, also thanks to the “Burden Me” video release.
After the release of “Compassion Forlorn” the band played in several gigs and festivals over Europe such as Gothoom Open Air (Slovakia), Metal Over Malta, Doom Rotten Death (Berlin, GER), Madrid is the Dark Fest IV, supporting Draconian in London, touring around Eastern Europe during ten days supporting the Danish band Saturnus, Full Metal Holidays (organized by Wacken), etc.
And it’s been during the summer of 2018 that the band has recorded its fourth full-length album, doing the same formula as the previous one (Psychosomatic Studios with M.A Riutort + Jens Bogren mastering the disc). The result is ‘Aamamata’, that is the song that Death sings every day in the Mediterranean Sea, which has become a desolate pit for human lives. The album is going to be released on January 23rd of 2019 again with Solitude/BadMoodMan. It’s a bit more epic, more intense and it keeps the personality of the previous albums. The contributions have been great. Heike Langhans of Draconian has sung in a song, like Júlia Colom, and Jaume Compte played the bouzouky and baglama. Guitar solos played by Pedro Zubiri.

Goregäng play wicked and corpulent death/crust metal that pays homage to the genre's greats as well as keeps things interesting by mixing it all up. Imagine Autopsy covering early Grave and Wombbath and you're getting close. Listen to the self-titled track that's streaming on YouTube and Bandcamp and stay glued for more coming your way.
GOREGÄNG (US) - 'NEON GRAVES' 
Genre 
Death Metal/Crust
Release Date  May 20th, 2019
Record Label  Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of   Autopsy, Tomb Mold, Paganizer, Ribspreader, Wombbath, Contaminated, Grave, Benediction, Unleashed
Death metal/crust maniacs Goregӓng have worked hard on their first full length album after causing a bit of a stir with their short debut. With members of reputed bands like Venom Inc., Ribspreader, Soilwork (live), etc. in their lineup, everything is top-notch and well-thought right down to the Mark Riddick logo, the jaw-dropping Juanjo Castellano artwork, not to mention the impeccable production and execution of the music that can be summed up as a perfect amalgamation of death metal with a lethal dose of crust/grind. There's added menace in the vocal delivery, with Kling mixing it all up and pacing it beautifully to the undulating music. There's an undeniable charm to the proceedings as the songs chug along with maniacal glee, breaking into faster punkish parts and rampaging till the end. It's an album littered with so many variations that you'll need to get back to it to keep track of it all. It's a rare album that eschews the standard template and does things its own way to keep it entertaining and yes, brutal.

Reputed US website The Heavy Blog Is Heavy premieres the 23 minute long hypnotic song by German Doom/Sludge metal band Eremit AT THIS LINK. Here's what Simon Handmaker had to say about it- 
"Eremit channels the greats: the hypnotic buzz of early Earth, the nihilistic lurch of Corrupted, and Bell Witch‘s monolithic presence all spring to mind as immediate comparisons for the style we see Eremit enacting on Carrier of Weight"
EREMIT (GERMANY) - 'CARRIER OF WEIGHT' 
Genre - Atmospheric Doom/Sludge Metal
Release Date - February 25th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Bell Witch, Thou, Eyehategod, Mournful Congregation, Jupiterian, The Whorehouse Massacre, Fistula
Monolithic sludge/doom band Eremit give us one of the heaviest and most ambitious album the style has seen in recent times. Featuring stunning album artwork by Mariusz Lewandowski (Bell Witch), the band trudge though turbulent, winding structures without letting them affect the overall momentum. There are three epic songs, with the longest being over 33 minutes, where they flesh out every nuance and showcase rare depth while retaining unparalleled brutality. Being the band's debut, the emotions are all too raw and palpable, but perhaps that's what's needed to get the point across. This is undiluted, straight-from-the-heart, maxed out sludge/doom with moments of poignancy ensconced in the bludgeoning heaviness.

CEREMONY OF SILENCE has launched the premiere of "Invocation of the Silent Eye," the newest track to come off of the Slovakian blackened death metal duo's forthcoming debut, OUTIS.
The music on Outis can be described as death metal with a dissonant, yet atmospheric feel, powered by rapid-fire blast beasts and dizzying tremolo riffs. The lyrics deal with mysticism and death, concepts that carry over into the album’s cover art - a traditional woodblock print designed by the band's drummer, Svjatogor.
The exclusive premiere of "Invocation of the Silent Eye" comes via Toilet Ov Hell. Stream the song at  https://toiletovhell.com/premiere-ceremony-of-silence-invocation-of-the-silent-eye/

CEREMONY OF SILENCE Bio:
Guitarist Vilozof and drummer Svjatogor – both already deeply-rooted in the Slovakian underground metal scene – formed CEREMONY OF SILENCE in 2015. The duo spent countless hours immersed in free-flowing, improvised jams and writing sessions.
Those sessions evolved from a frenzied and spirited expression of the duo’s combined energies to a more focused exploration of the shapeshifting and misted musical horizons in the distance. The result of their journey became the band’s seven-song debut album Outis.
CEREMONY OF SILENCE is:
Vilozof - guitar, bass, vocals
Svjatogor - drums

https://youtu.be/epzQZPYva24 
Recorded at Velvet Recording in Spydeberg, Norway, "Necrogenesis" was engineered by Nordjevel and Christer Krogh, and mixed and mastered by Patric Darkhyrys at his WSL Studios in France.  With Artwork and layout by Vincent Fouquet of Above Chaos, tracklisting for "Necrogenesis" is as follows

BandCamp:

A follow up to Nordjevel's 2016 self-titled debut full-length album, "Necrogenesis" sees the band's core of founder and vocalist Doedsadmiral (SVARTELDER, DOEDSVANGR, ENEPSIGOS) and bassist DzeptiCunt (ex-RAGNAROK), being joined by Destruchtor (MYRKSKOG, ex-MORBID ANGEL) on guitars and backing vocals, and Dominator (ex-DARK FUNERAL) on drums.
Talking about the effect the new arrivals have had on the band, Doedsadmiral recently had this to say:   
With the addition of Destruchtor and Dominator to the band's lineup, NORDJEVEL has never been so strong. "Necrogenesis" is a much darker and violent album. It is also more varied and mature, both musically and lyrically. We definitely did not want to get stuck in a rut and churn out an identikit version of our debut, and, fortunately, we all felt that we wanted to go in the same direction, so we were all able to work together extremely well on the new songs.  Having said that, "Necrogenesis" was a hard bastard of an album to complete, and at times we felt that the universe was conspiring against us, so it became a very personal album for all of us.
Nordjevel are set to hit the road in March alongside SUFFOCATION, BELPHEGOR and GOD DETHRONED.  Routing as follows:

Hexecutor – “Hangmen of Roazhon” ( MCD )
The French maniacs of Hexecutor are working on new material, yet noticed that record flippers are trying to earn big money on the long time sold out 7”. So naturally they wanted their 4 track ep re-released. The songs were remastered and now their merciless thrash metal onslaught sounds even stronger than before. Beware! After many requests following the MLP version, the MCD version is now here.Comes with a sticker.
Torpedo –  “Rocking Hard “ ( CD )
When Sergeant Salsten from Deathhammer took a break from the freezing north and headed over to live down under in Tasmania, he was bound to meet Will Spectre. Despite the many bands and projects always running such as Tarot, The Wizar’d, Spectre or Dracula, the two teamed up and decided to record some quick and dirty speed Metal. Within a few months, they recorded two tapes with a total of 7 tracks that were only available on tape. This CD reissue is changing it and makes the music available again. Expect raw metal made with almost juvenile passion for this great genre.Comes with a sticker.
Power from Hell – “Lust and Violence”  ( LP )
Brazilian leading black thrash monster Power from Hell is constantly trying to keep their extensive back catalogue in print and therefore have once again teamed up with Dying Victims Productions to bring back their 2011 album “Lust and Violence” to honorary vinyl. Previously released in very limited numbers by local Mafer Records, this has been basically unavailable for most fans and collectors of their music. In addition, there is a brand new bonus track which shows their development in sound and style. To all the filthy metal sleazers out there, these guys are your new heroes.
Regular edition on black vinyl with insert, poster and sticker. Special edition on white vinyl with insert, poster, sticker and woven patch.
Road Warrior – “ Power” ( MC )
After a killer (yet too short!) demo tape on HMH and Heavy Chains Records, the Australians are finally here to unleash their debut album. The great Mad Max-style cover raises expectations and Road Warrior are here to meet them. The three piece has been active in all kinds of well known bands such as Cauldron Black Ram, Mournful Congregation, Johnny Touch, Martire or Stargaze and simply cannot fail in reviving the feeling of old Priest, Maiden, Twisted Sister or Riot. Unless many other new metal bands they also manage to release an album which sounds homogenous yet never the same or repetitive.
Regular edition with sticker and button. Special edition with sticker and woven patch.
Hitten – “First Strike with the Devil” ( CD)      Hitten – “State of Shock”  ( CD )
The Spanish heavy metal heroes of Hitten are already well known in the scene with 3 strong, yet versatile albums and loads of great gigs and tours under their belt. Their traditional heavy metal with strong, high pitched vocals has won them many fans who keep nagging the band to keep their older material in print. Therefore Dying Victims Productions was happy to reissue their debut album “First strike with the Devil” from 2014 and “State of Shock” from 2016. Both were treated to a new layout and the latter even got enhanced with a bonus track, a great cover version of a DIO classic. For those that just got to know them recently, or missed out on their albums before, get your copies now!
Regular edition with sticker. Special edition with sticker and metal pin.
Bandit – “Stand & Deliver” ( MCD )
Finnish one-man-act Bandit is completely new to the scene. Bitchlord, who takes care of all the instruments here, however, has been around with his main black thrash band Terror Cross for a while. Thus, these first 6 tracks don’t seem like a first attempt at all. Bandit is blackened speed metal mania to the bone and has been compared to acts such as Toxic Holocaust, Midnight or even mighty Venom. Get your fix or “Get Nuked”!
Comes with a sticker.

ERADICATOR – “THE ATOMIC BLAST” ( RE-RELEASE )
SUPERSEED – „SUPERSEED“
FLYKT – “CHARNEL HEAR”
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Folter Records
Vertrieb: Alive
VÖ: 29.03.2019
FLYKT wurden 2016 in Stockholm, Schweden gegründet. Die Band, die sich unter anderem aus ehemaligen Mitgliedern von REV 16:8 und VALKYRJA zusammensetzt, enterte im Jahre 2018 erstmals das Studio. Das Debütalbum „Charnel Heart“ wurde in den Wing Studios in Stockholm aufgenommen und im Studio Studio Nyhagen in Norwegen gemixt. Schon die ersten Songfragmente zogen die Aufmerksamkeit des deutschen Szenelabels Folter Records auf sich, welche die Schweden kurzerhand unter Vertrag genommen haben.
„Charnel Heart“ ist ein bitterböses Black-Metal-Album voll klassisch-fieser Gitarren, bedrohlichen Leadgitarren und packendem Midtempo sowie brutalen Uptempo-Attacken. Das Album dient den FLYKT-Musikern als Vehikel des Widersachers, dem Tod der Menschheit und dem Aufstieg des Tiers. Neben der Veröffentlichung von „Charnel Heart“ werden derzeit die Vorbereitungen für Dinge getroffen, welche die Welt demnächst heimsuchen.

Musikalisch beeinflusst von Bands wie Dio, Alice Cooper oder Black Sabbath, lassen SCARCROW auf ihrem Debüt selbstredend auch ihre ganz eigene Handschrift für sich sprechen.

Geschätztes Metalvolk, lange ist es her, daß wir einen Newsletter durchs www gejagt haben. Heutzutage werden Neuigkeiten aller Art ja auch eher über die diversen asozialen Netzwerke verkündet. Aber wir wollen nicht versäumen, hin und wieder auch auf diesem Wege ein Lebenszeichen von uns zu geben.
2018 liegt hinter uns, 2019 hat gut begonnen und wird für ELVENPATH ein arbeitsreiches Jahr werden. Wir haben alles gegeben, um mit unserem neuen Album die hohe Meßlatte von "Pieces of Fate" noch zu übertreffen. Ob uns das gelungen ist? Das könnt Ihr ab dem 9.3. selbst beurteilen, denn dann wird das neue
Werk, betitelt "THE PATH OF THE DARK KING", erhältlich sein.
Am Veröffentlichungstag findet die Releaseparty im Moshpit zu Flörsheim statt, für den Rest des Jahres stehen ebenfalls bislang etwa 20 Gigs auf dem Programm. Wie immer werden alle Konzerte frühzeitig auf unserer Homepage verzeichnet sein. Neben zahlreichen Gigs in Deutschland geht es dieses Jahr auch nach Frankreich, Luxemburg, Italien und vielleicht noch weiter. Es lohnt sich also, immer mal vorbeizuschauen.
Wir hoffen, Euch irgendwann dieses Jahr vor der Bühne zu sehen. Bis dann - stay Metal!

Fünf Jahre haben die Kerle gebraucht, um diese Platte fertigzustellen.
Das Ergebnis ist gemeingefährlicher No-Bullshit-Hardcore, den die Szene dringend mal wieder braucht. Lasst Euch begeistern!

"The Order Of The Silver Compass" jongliert hemmungslos mit breitbeinigen Stadion-Rock-Refrains, Bay-Area-Aggression und Düster-Metal-Versatzstücken. Der Song steht dabei klar vor etwaiger Effekthascherei im Vordergrund. ATHANASIA rocken laut und direkt auf die Zwölf!
"The Order Of The Silver Compass" ist erhältlich als Digipak CD, Picture Disc (limitiert auf 300 Stück weltweit) & als Download und kann hier vorbestellt werden:

ATHANASIA besteht aus Sänger/Gitarrist Caleb Bingham (Ex- FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH), Bassist Brandon Miller, und Drummer Jason West (Ex- MURDERDOLLS/WEDNESDAY 13).

Die niederländische Band setzt weiterhin auf ihre eigenwillig-schöne Mischung aus hypnotischen Gothic-beeinflussten Vibes, seelenvollem Heavy Rock und atmosphärischen, oftmals regelrecht verträumten Vocals und perfektioniert sie weiter.
GOLD sind eine progressiv-komplexe Band, die dennoch jeder Facette ihrer Kunst genügend Raum zum Atmen gibt. Produzent Jaime Gomez Arellano (u.a. Paradise Lost, Grave Pleasures) hat die Qualitäten der Gruppe perfekt eingefangen und lässt sie größer, klarer und zugleich intimer denn je klingen.
Sängerin Milena Eva agiert vielseitiger denn je und vermittelt auf ihre ganz eigene Art eine Emotionspalette von Verletzlichkeit über Konfusion, Neugier und Empörung bis hin zu Hoffnung. GOLD sind ebenso von Dark-Pop, Art-Rock wie Black Metal beeinflusst und verbinden ihre Vorlieben mit einem ureigenen Twist, erinnern zuweilen etwas an Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Kristin Hersh und Throwing Muses, bleiben aber individuell und sind auf eine faszinierende Art massenwirksam.

Maniacs, es wird Zeit euch eine neue Band auf unseres diesjährigen Billings zu präsentieren. Jeder Freund von Oldschool und Death 'n Thrash dürfte sich freuen. Tickets gibts übrigens hier: https://www.cudgel.de/Tickets/
Sie haben eine Vorreiterrolle was Extreme Metal angeht, sind sie (mit einer kleinen Unterbrechungen) doch schon seit 1984 aktiv. Prägend für spätere Bands erwies sich der Sound den die Niederländer auffuhren. Einige der Mitglieder und Exmitglieder sind und waren bei Bands wie Asphyx, Hail of Bullets, Sinister & Grand Supreme Blood Court aktiv. Erraten? Korrekt! THANATOS werden euch mit feinsten Death-Thrash-Geprügel zeigen wo der Hammer hängt!

RAGNHILD- 'TAVERN TALES'
Ragnhild play a very distinct style of Death Metal fusing element of Melodies and Viking Metal but offer a very unique sound that defines their brand. Perhaps, that's the speciality of it. Commenting about the song, "The Songs in the album have been composed with the general idea of how Melodic Death Metal comprising of Nordic/ Celtic melodies when mixed with heavier riffs and vocals sound. The lyrics that we wrote are basically out of our own imagination of various incidents that took place in our history. 'Under the Red Sky' is written with similar ideas. The lyrics talk about a fleet of soldiers that were betrayed by one of our own and by the grace of the gods, they found out about the ambush that awaits".
Here's the album's track list:
Battle on My Grave  
A Viking Mosh
We Will March
Glory of our mighty king
Under The Red Sky
Stronghold
Ragnhild
Tavern Tales (title track)
Death of a warrior

Overview
It took six long years to ATARAXIE to deliver the follow-up to 2013's ultra massive "L'être et la nausée". Six long years spent reinventing themselves when guitarist Sylvain ESTEVE (one of the founding members) left, replacing him with two new guitar players Hugo GASPAR (FATUM ELISUM, MALEMORT...) and Julian PAYAN (SORDIDE, VOID PARADIGM...), re-arranging their whole back-catalogue for this uncommon new line-up with three guitarists, touring Europe and writing new material. But when it comes to one of the European leaders of the Extreme Doom scene, delivery definitely doesn't mean deliverance. At all.
"Résignés", the new album, is all but just "music", it's a painful experience to be suffered by all senses, by all organs, innards... It's not just like swarming in the sewers. It's drowning in an oil spill of cataclysmic proportions where deep growls sound like the last words expectorated through a last breath from oil-filled lungs and screams express the utter madness invading the mind of the soon-to-be-dead, you.
Mixed by Sylvain BIGUET (TREPALIUM, EIBON, DISOWNING...) and mastered by Collin JORDAN (VOIVOD, EYEHATEGOD, YOB...) again, "Résignés" deals with the global failure of a whole specie chewing the rotten remains of the planet that once fed it, vowing itself to its own demise, wallowing in pathetic beliefs in a hallucinated salvation.
A world made of the madness of the masses, the morbid Human curiosity, its voyeurism and hunger for blood and a whole part of the society, hopeless and resignated to commit suicide before having to face an even more painful end, taking turns between the executioner's hands, watching in delight the one before them dying while waiting for their own time to come. Here's what "Résignés" is all about: the resignation to death as the sole deliverance.
Prepare to meet thy Extreme Doom.

LEATHER GLOVE – “ PERPETUAL ANIMATION” 
Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide,  Sentient Ruin is proud and honored to renew the unholy pact with Greg Wilkinson. After having released his debut demo tape as Leather Glove back in 2016, we now present you the legendary sound engineer's staggering debut solo LP - Perpetual Animation.
Renowned American extreme metal sound engineer Greg Wilkison (of Brainoil, Deathgrave, ex. Laudanum, ex. Graves at Sea) owner and founder/operator of the legendary Earhammer Studios in Oakland CA (Noothgrush, Necrot, Autopsy, Vastum, Acephalix, Mortuous, Undergang, countless others) brings you his first ever solo full-length effort under the Leather Glove moniker. Standing somewhere between the caveman tank-like death metal approach of Coffins and Undergang, and the hallucinogenic sonic derailment of bands like Swans and Zeni Geva, in this debut long player of deviant and shapeshifting death-doom destruction Greg is aided by drummers Chad Gailey (Necrot, Vastum, Mortuous, Atrament, etc) and Dustin Ferris (Apraxic, Pleasure Cross, Engorged, etc) to unleash thirty minutes of cerebral and disgusting aural mayhem, smashing together death metal, D beat, crust, sludge, doom, and industrial noise to summon a low end monster of deranged experimentalism and of unspeakable heaviness. Ripping guitar solos laid down by bastion Bay Area metal shredders like Sean McGrath (Ghoul, Impaled), Shelby Lermo (Vastum, Ulthar, Extremity), Eric Cutler (Autopsy), and Danny Corrales (Autopsy, Abcess) round out a debut release of absolutely incinerating intensity.
No Clean Singing have premiered the track Reflections of Despair, which you can listen to
HERE, remarking on its “immense destructive power”. 
Perpetual Animation drops officially on March 8 2019 on tape, digital, and US vinyl via Sentient Ruin, while an EU vinyl version will be handled by Dawnbreed Records. Pre-orders now live on our store or Bandcamp.
Thank you as always for your time and attention given to our releases. Sincerely,  Sentient Ruin

STRAYTONES - "BEWARE, DARK LORD! HERE COMES BELL-MAN"
Release date: 22-02-2019
Genre: Psychedelic Rock
Label: Robustfellow Prods
Country: Ukraine
The third release of Ukrainian finest psychedelic rock outfit Straytones will be distributed via Robustfellow Prods.digitally on the 22nd of February. Following their album “S/Т”, which was released in the beginning of 2017 and gained many positive reviews in Ukraine and beyond, the new EP demonstrates the band’s masterful knowledge and progression in the psychedelic rock realm.  Remarkably, the EP will be supported by a cartoon music video born of the story that’s uncovered throughout the release.
Band members comment:
“The joke about the winter outfits of Straytones band members turned into the idea about two cartoon characters and that’s exactly how the Dark Lord and the Bell-Man came into being. We wanted to create a garage-rock opera to uncover fictional story of an evil mastermind Dark Lord who obtains a powerful artifact and travels to meta-space to become invincible. Eventually he gets overpowered by the irrational, chaotic and odd Bell-Man whom he encounters there. By defeating Dark Lord, Bell-Man suddenly saves the world and brings back harmony and ballance. Cartoon depicts first part of this story and release in general”.
The EP will be available via all major digital outlets including iTunes, Spotify, Google Play etc.
