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

Sehr geehrte Extremsportler! Nach über 20 Karrierejahren muss man JUNGLE ROT nun wirklich niemandem mehr vorstellen.
Die Truppe aus Wisconsin steht für barbarisches Extremmetall, das den Feind auch noch nach dem Hissen der weißen Fahne erbarmungslos niedermäht.
Das neue Schlachtfest hat man schlicht und ergreifend "Jungle Rot" getauft und lässt es jetzt via Victory Records auf die Szene los.
Der Titel suggeriert es bereits:
Die Band hat ihren Sound in der Schnittmenge aus Death- und Thrash Metal längst gefunden und ist verdammt stolz drauf.
"Jungle Rot" knallt von Anfang bis Ende, gemixt und gemastert hat kein Geringerer als Dan Swanö, und in der Tradition geschmackssicher gewählter Coverversionen präsentiert man diesmal eine grandiose Interpretation von Kreators Classic ´Terrible Certainty´.
Und hört mal genau hin, wer auf ´Fearmonger´ die Gast-Vocals übernimmt. Ja, das ist der Frontmann von einer der anderen Teutonic-4-Kapellen: Schmier von Destruction.
Jetzt gibt´s auch ENDLICH wieder Europa-Tourdaten!

AGRYPNIE – “GRENZGÆNGER / PAVOR NOCTURNUS”
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Supreme Chaos Records
Vertrieb: Cargo Records
VÖ: 12.10.2018
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, dass 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.
Ebenfalls mit mehr als einer Stunde Spielzeit ist auch dieses Album eine Reise in die Tiefen einer anderen Welt.

Upcoming fullength album with Swedish CURSUS BELLUM, to be released as CD/DL 12/10 2018! Blackened death metal!
Cursus Bellum, spawned in the vast black soil of Lundaslätten, Sweden is consisting of Jocke Unger – drums / vocals and Anders Nyander – guitars / bass.
After decade long co-operation in constellations such as Sgt.Carnage, along with the mutual metal-vinyl & beer consumption of biblical proportions,
the musical and creative direction of Cursus Bellum first took its perverted form in 2013.
The first official unveiling of the duo came in form of the recording MCD/Cassette “Accusing The Dead“, released early 2016 on Downfall Records.
Further inspired by the surounding muddy moraine and pale horizonless skies of the Scanian plains material for a new full length album was assembled.
The recording seance was once again held in Studio Oggerlunden and the new full length album “Ex Nihilo Nihil Fit” will be released as CD and in Digital
format by Downfall Records in the fall of 2018.
The members also have previous or current involvement in acts as:
Jocke – Totenwelt Ratad, Järnbörd, Immersed in Blood, Sgt. Carnage, Supreme Majesty...
Anders – Non Serviam, Sgt.Carnage, In Black, Obscurity (Krstd.), Serenade (es.)...

CORPSEFUCKING ART -  “ SPLATTERPHOBIA”
Genre: Brutal Death Metal
For fans of: Cannibal Corpse | Mortician | Immolation
Line-up:
Mr Daisy - Vocals
Andrea Cipolla - Guitar
Mario Di Giambattista - Guitar
Marco De Ritis - Bass
Drums on Splatterphobia by Marco Coghe
In a kingdom of grotesqueries the most twisted wears the crown and rules his cruel world from a palace of atrocities. Within the walls of tortured, living flesh, monsters feast on innocents and the rivalries of lunatics are played out in tableaus of blood. Amongst it all there is one who dances for the demons, who mocks the mad men and tells tales of unhinged hilarity for the psychopaths. One who tumbles through the gore, turning cartwheels in the crimson filth, laughing all the while. Corpsefucking Art are this demented, juggling jester in the court of the insane king...
Like a pack of sniggering sadists, Italians Corpsefucking Art have always wrapped their barbarous bludgeoning in barbed wire humour, laced their poisonous potions with razor blade trickery. They tell tales of flesh puzzles and devouring sauces while unleashing some of the most powerful and accomplished music ever to crawl from the dank dungeons of brutal death metal. Fronted by the machete wielding Mr Daisy, part lunatic/part ludicrous, Corpsefucking Art have blazed a trail of demented irreverence through the metal world for the last twenty two years; splitting skulls and sides with repulsive recordings like 'Splatter Deluxe', 'War Of The Toilet Gear' and 'Zombiefuck'. They have left their victims laughing at their own demise as they bled out in the gutter, hogtied in their entrails.
On November 23rd, ably assisted by Comatose Music, Corpsefucking Art will release their latest and greatest concoction of sick humour and sicker riffs - Splatterphobia! Featuring the savage single 'Satanic Barbeque', the precision dissection of 'Black Sheep Terror', the relentless lung puncturing brutality of 'Beyond the Holy Grounds' and the heaviest version of Cannibal Corpse's 'Staring Through The Eyes Of The Dead' that you'll ever hear, Splatterphobia is not for the faint of heart or the sound of mind. But if you're ready to follow the jester, he'll have you laughing and dancing all the way to your coffin.

WURM FLESH – “EXCORIATION EVISCERATION”
Genre: Brutal Death Metal
For fans of: Broken Hope | Suffocation | Disavowed
Deep beneath the soil, hidden from the eyes of god and man, lies the world of Wurms. A kingdom of impenetrable darkness where they crawl endlessly through the blackness...relentlessly searching, blindly hunting for dead flesh. They squirm through the earth, forcing their bloated bodies through the cracks in time-worn, mouldering coffins to feast on the rotting detritus of human existence. The eyeless, limbless kings of their hidden empire, forever dancing the 'Waltz Of The Wurms' in the silence of eternal night...
'Waltz Of The Wurms' is the haunting instrumental that opens the debut album from brutal death metal monstrosity, Wurm Flesh, it's chilling tones providing the perfect sinister introduction to an album of sanguinary nightmares. Excoriation Evisceration leads you through darkness and blood on a heart stopping journey through the 'House Of Flesh' to the 'Tombs In Which Gods Decay' before leaving you alone, lost in the black, waiting for the wurms. The tales of horror that fill Excoriation Evisceration are set to the ultimate brutal death metal soundtrack, the music combining wicked technicality, irresistible groove and sheer, battering power. It's everything that the demented disciples of death crave, everything they hunger for when the bloodlust strikes and cannot be denied.
The Wurm Flesh entity was initially formed in 2014 by guitarist/vocalist Rob Calhoun, the full line-up being painstakingly assembled over the following four years. Based in Sacramento, this elite killing machine are now ready to unleash their hellish creation upon the world and with the eager assistance of notorious purveyors of pain, Comatose Music, the date of destruction has been set. On November 23rd the pathways to the world of Wurms will be revealed and humanity will be summoned into the darkness. Madness, death and consumption await...

BIO
Massive Scar Era is a band that kicked off in 2005 from the scenic seaside city of Alexandria, Egypt. Cherine Amr was driven with the idea of forming a metal band out of her passion for playing guitar and singing since she was a teenager. Due to her Family's restrictions, she was only allowed to play music with girls, so the only way for her to play music was to form an all-girls band. After a few false starts at maintaining a cohesive band, she found in the violinist Nancy Mounir her musical companion. They clicked straightaway even with their distinct musical backgrounds. Influenced by both metal, classical and Egyptian music; the band started to garner interest from audiences who were absorbed by the fusion of all those elements.
MSE kept on exploring that unique mix of influences and rehearse a diverse and large number of songs. The curiosity of discovering new sounds allowed the style and tone of the band to evolve. In no time, the band established itself among the music scene by landing a multitude of local gigs and appearances such as in Bibliotheca Alexandrina (Library of Alexandria) and in the S.O.S. Music Festival.
Touring North America and Europe; Massive Scar Era is always excited to share its sound with different parts of the world; experiencing an ultimate connection with the audience through music.

"This song is based on the urban legend of the North of Russia. It is about the freight train number 1702, which travels through the deep forests of Northern Europe. According to legend, during the journey, the crew meets an alien object that first surrounds the train, and then picks up the train and moves it with a giant speed. The song describes what is happening and the emotional feeling of the crew, including visual and sound design tools (the average tempo of the composition, like the train, guitar parts emphasize what the song is about, there are original sounds of the train). Musically, the song is inspired by American groove metal and Scandinavian black metal."

Second To Sun is a metal band from Saint Petersburg, Russia, founded in 2012 by its guitarist Vladimir Lehtinen. Second To Sun concentrate on the musical and creative aspect more and use visual elements on every song (artwork, lyrics, behind the song infos etc.) to give more depth and back story to the music. The band's music contains a blend of metal genres: on the one hand, it has the many rhythmic elements of groove metal; on the other -hand, it continues the legacy of such classic Scandinavian black metal bands as Emperor, Mayhem, and Dakthrone. Such diverse musical roots of the band protrude from Vladimir Lehtinen's songwriting, Gleb Sysoev's soul-crushing vocals and Fedor Borovsky's groovy drum lines. The band releases two versions of each album - the vocal and the instrumental one. Each individual instrumental composition is accompanied by unique artwork and a hefty description of the story the composition tells, which provides a deeper insight into the music, as well as the band's inspiration and creative process. Second To Sun has released released two albums - The First Chapter and The Black, and is now getting ready to release third album The Walk.

ORACLE – “TALES OF PYTHIA”
Genre:
Heavy/Thrash Metal
For fans of: God Forbid | Lamb Of God | Machine Head
Our oceans are dying, our atmosphere is poisoned, violence simmers in every corner of the world and we tumble blindly into the darkness of extinction. The masses turn on each other, tearing themselves apart, guided into paths of hatred and division while the self appointed elite sit in their gleaming towers of chrome and glass, on golden thrones paid for with the blood of the weak. We march onwards to the end times, furnishing their palaces with our bones...all of us, rich and poor, weak and mighty, deaf to the words of prophecy. Step by step we fulfil the predictions of our ultimate doom...
This bleak scenario forms the canvas for the anthems of anger that make up Oracle's Tales Of Pythia EP. These five songs are an outpouring of frustration and fury at the selfishness, greed and stupidity that sweep us forward to our seemingly inevitable end. Bringing together the muscular structures of contemporary metal, the potent protest of classic thrash and binding them both in barbed wire aggression, Oracle have created a riff and rage driven sound for our times of madness. The topics are global, the feelings intensely personal and as such Oracle speak to everyone who finds themselves drowning in these days of confusion; and they speak with a skull shattering roar! From damaging opener 'Deny' to the final scream of defiance that is the powerful 'Prisons', Tales Of Pythia injects liquid fire into the bloodstream.
Oracle were founded on the streets of Belfast in 2015 and since then they have poured heart, soul, blood and rage into their music. Their sound has grown and developed over a series of singles and finally blossomed into the formidable force present on Tales Of Pythia. This EP was originally released in June 2018, but with little promotional support it was lost in the static and white noise. This time these songs are going to be heard! The message is too important, the music too venomously vital to be lost. Open your ears, open your minds, to the brutal truth of Oracle!

Ahnengrab were founded in 2006 and have released two long players so far,  „Ahnengrab“ (2008) and „Omen“ (2012). Even at the earliest stages the musicians had decided to pursue Pagan Black Metal. Now years of songwriting and the intense use of  the renowned  Agordas Studio in Dresden (Germany) under the supervision of producer André Grosch lead to the nearly 60-minute long opus „Schattenseiten“ („Shadow Sides“). First  reactions speak for themselves: true to their initial style, the band treads new ground, opening new musical horizons.

Gorycz – one of the latest Pagan Records signings - reveal the next track from their debut album, Piach. Scheduled for a release on 2 November, the album is available for pre-order via the record label’s webstore.
Listen to “Czarna Ciecz” via Nine Circles: https://ninecircles.co/2018/10/09/premiere-gorycz-czarna-ciecz/
Gorycz were formed in 2016 when ex-Aeon members Przemek Grabowski and Tomek Kukliński decided to return to the roots of their first band and create music together again. They were soon joined by Non Opus Dei members Wojtek Błaszkowski and Krysiek Górski, who sought something casual and spontaneous to unshackle their creativity. The musicians set off writing and playing music without a set concept or goal other than to enjoy themselves. Several months of exploration and improvisation resulted in the project’s debut album: Piach.
The poetic, but somewhat ambiguous, lyrics explore the earth in the physical sense and its connection with society, life and death. The album title relates to the Polish idiom ‘iść w piach’ which translates as ‘bite the dust’ in English. Guitarist, Przemek Grabowski, explains that in the context of the album’s lyrics the word ‘piach’ (‘sand’) is a definitive word meaning ‘death’, and that’s why ‘piach’ “is a necessity with which we must become accustomed to as people”.   
Piach was recorded at Nebula Studio with Tomek Stołowski (of the prog act Tides From Nebula). Haldor Grunberg of Satanic Audio (Behemoth, Thaw, Sunnata) was responsible for the mix and mastering. The artwork and layout was done by Przemek Grabowski.

1914  - “ THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND “
BEYOND excited to share our newest signing, the Ukraine's 1914, with the world! Their upcoming album, The Blind Leading the Blind, is going to take the Metal World by storm!!!
The Blind Leading the Blind is one of those unique albums that takes you on a journey - it's a full emersion utilizing story, visual, and sound all coming together to transport you back to the trenches of WWI. I've never experienced anything quite like it. I hope you all agree and can't wait for everyone to hear it in it's entirety - this is one that you will want to listen from beginning to end. Put on your headphones, close your eyes, and imagine that it was only yesterday Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated...in the distance...the drums of war.....
Where death becomes absurd and life absurder...
1914 are an Ukrainian band that formed in 2014, at the 100th anniversary of the First World War. 1914's existence is an homage to all that fell fighting the Great War. The band's themes cover topics such as the Battle of Gallipoli (and the involvement of Ataturk), the Brusilovsky breakthrough, the Battle of Verdun, the gas attack at Ypres, the elite Italian troops - the Arditi, the Christmas truce and the bombing of London by German Zeppelins, Carpathian's winter war, Germans and Austro-Hungarian army against Russian troops and many others. 1914 are neither politicital, nor war-mongers – like a specialized scholar or historian, 1914 tell the tales of war, injustice, fear, hopelessness and endless death around of you....
WWI does not get explored very often, as WWII typically overshadows it, but these Ukrainian brave soldiers make a damn solid case for it's historical significance. More importantly, their music is stomping, heavy as all hell, and inspires the strength and bravery within to march toward Death. Their unique and powerful mix of black metal, sludge, and oldschool death metal are one of a kind, and they are ready to shock the world with their music and live performance.
On Sept 18th, 1914 proudly showcased a brand new track off of their upcoming album, The Blind Leading the Blind, entitled 'Passchenhell' featuring Death Metal great,
David Ingram, (Benediction, Bolt Thrower, Just Before Dawn, Ursinne, Down Among the Dead Men). With U.S. & European representation through Redefining Darkness Records & Archaic Sound, The Blind Leading The Blind will see a very unorthodox release date at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month (Central European Time) - the 100th Anniversary of the End of Great War.
"The music is massively heavy and steeped in the shocking misery of shattered bodies and pervasive death, and it’s also explosively violent, with searing riffs and soaring leads that, together with blazing drumwork and wrenching voices, raise visions of the horrible grandeur and mortifying terror of such man-made conflagrations as the battle to which these songs allude. It will really get your head moving, too - and I’m glad that 1914 have also continued to insert excerpts from period songs, as they do at their previous album." -
No Clean Singing
1914 is:
Vocal | 2.Division, Infanterie-Regiment Nr.147, Oberleutnant – Ditmar Kumar

DEADLY CARNAGE’s “THROUGH THE VOID, ABOVE THE SUNS” is a phenomenal journey, an unmatched vision of the Cosmos with all its tangible and intangible components: stars, dark matter, black holes. Forces that regulate it up through Light and Time. Each of those often intangible elements has been characterized and almost humanized, to transcend their original dimensions in order to explain themselves to us in an intelligible, universal language of knowledge and enlightenment. It’s a travel that proceeds from the infinitely small world of raw matter to infinite cosmic distances, where Time and Space finally coincide. After everything has been born and has made its course in a myriad of random possibilities, it comes to entropy, to the absolute frost, the loss of every light, the complete end. And, right after, the Universe starts to breath once again, and the eternal cycle restarts.
While in the past DEADLY CARNAGE have explored existentialism, with this new chapter they move towards an universal vision, halfway between science, philosophy, occultism and spirituality.
GENRE: Post-Black / Doom
LABEL: ATMF (CD Version), Snow Wave Records (Vinyl Version)
What to expect on the musical manifestation side? A wide vision and dark moods following a strong emotional gameplan. Some may recognize doomish shadings, expanding post-rock & shoegaze fields, but the experience still has to be lived…
“Through the Void, Above the Suns” is the fourth album of the band, but it is the first concept album in 12 years of activity. The processing of this album lasted about 4 years.
All previous works have been recorded with another singer, this is the first album with Alexios on vocals (Alexios was already the band's guitarist since 2011).
BIOGRAPHY
Deadly Carnage was born in 2005 from an idea of Adres (bass) and Marco (drums), after the first few periods of militancy in the Black/Thrash Metal scene, the intentions of the band begin to change; the sounds become more atmospheric and introspective. In 2007 Deadly Carnage began a slow shift away from the Black Metal scene in favor of Doom, Post-Rock and Post-Metal influences. This evolutionary period is crowned with the release of "Manthe" in 2014, but the change of Deadly Carnage has not set a limit, the intention of the band is to continue to experiment, evolve and explore new territories without posing musical limits, without barriers. "Through the Void, Above the Suns" represents another chapter in this evolving.
Through the Void, Above the Suns (Concept)
"There is a sacred geometry in the whispers of the strings, creating music in the space between spheres, take a journey through the Void, above the Suns. Start to inhale quantic hummings, vibrating, chaotic energy fills the void following the first information given: Birth, Create. Where no eye can create Matter with his sight, the real fabric of the universe create the basic pillars of the existence: the Hyle, in bright giant furnaces. And Cosmos can be called like so, following a second law: Procreate. So light trasmits the data of life. Light, Lumis, Light. Cosmos is living, Cosmos is breathing. And we are through Streams of Shine. Eye that creates Matter at sight, Matter that bends time at will, then Cosmos duplicate himself to be aware of his own potential. Segments, Ifenes, portions of frozen spacetime. A view of a giant infinite fractalized universal Tree, where every branches are a pulse of a Divide in the storming dusts of time. From infinite possibilities, universe create a multiverse, channeling in this line of spacetime. This is the choosen path. Cosmos is living, Cosmos is breathing. And all goes to repeat where dilute gases uniform to the void, time's exhale: End, Entropy. Cosmos is living, then he follows the third and last order given: Destroy, dragging its charm of absolute emptiness. But we are a single breathe of his quantic lung, feeling again a geometry, whispers inside spheres. We are travelling inside his body to keep it alive. Universe needs a conscious sentient being from the essence of stars. Cosmos is living. Cosmos is breathing.
And we are through Streams of Shine."

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."

Vancouver (BC) - Canadian neoclassical instrumental metal band ALCHEMY CHAMBER have released their debut full-length album, OPUS I: SUBTLE MOVEMENTS FROM WITHIN
Purchase and/or stream the album in its entirety.  alchemychamber.bandcamp.com/album/opus-i-subtle-movements-from-within
Two official videos for songs from the album are available now. Check 'em out below!
"No. 1 (Dedicated to Doug Gorkoff)"   youtu.be/gx0F1YcfTQ0
"No. 10."  youtu.be/QxO4JKL4X9I
Built around cello and saxophone duets, ALCHEMY CHAMBER is an eclectic mix of genres, featuring captivating melodies intertwined with complex rhythms in a purely instrumental arrangement. The unique sound of the band, which combines heavy riffs and expressive contrapuntal melodic lines, is influenced by classical composers as well as metal bands of various genres.
The songs have numbers instead of names, and the album is referred to as an "Opus" to reflect the classical side and influences of the music. The order truly is chronological, which means the songs on the album appear in the order they were written. Composition No. 1 is dedicated to Doug Gorkoff who has been Anna's cello teacher for the last 10 years and played a significant role in her becoming the musician she is today. This album is meant to take you through the band's creative development and let you experience the continuous thought process the musicians were going through at the time and changes in the flow of ideas as the time passed. Lyric-less, but not voiceless, the album is designed to encourage one's own interpretation of the music while also telling a story about it's own birth between the lines.

BIO
Beginnings and core members: Cello, Saxophone.
Alchemy Chamber is a neo-classical instrumental metal band led by Anna Kuchkova (cello & composition), along with Kevin Arland (saxophone). 
It was founded in December 2012 by Anna who had always had a vision for such project and has finally decided to arrange the first few original cello duets for the band. She has invited Kevin, whom she'd known from past projects, to collaborate. With the addition of the saxophone, the compositions gained a whole new unique colour.
Anna is a classically trained cellist, an active member of the West Coast Symphony Orchestra and chamber musician. In the past she played principal cello in New Westminster Symphony Orchestra, and was a session cellist for various recording projects and live events in Vancouver BC. For years, Anna has also been involved in rock and metal scene. These two completely different worlds intertwine in her approach to composition.
Kevin, Capilano graduate, has played in horn sections for most of his life. He's a member of the South Van Big Band and different jazz groups in Vancouver. He performed with Grammy winning Puerto Rican salsa projects and was a musician on a cruise ship traveling all the way through Asia into Europe. Kevin was not very familiar with the concept of symphonic metal, but liked Anna's writing and the fact that the project was purely instrumental.
While Kevin and Anna remain the core and the face of the band, musicians that have been recruited along the way, contributed a great deal to the project and helped shape the sound into what it is today.
Drums
Julia Geaman has been Alchemy Chamber's drummer since early 2013. She shared responsibilities as a regular member for some time, until recently when her position changed to semi-permanent. Julia is a drum teacher and clinician, drummer in the band Revenger and a session drummer who loves to explore new styles, meet other musicians and travel. After familiarizing herself with Anna's music, she worked hard on creating drum parts that would fit such odd style and instrumentation. Julia's creativity and open-minded approach made a big difference for the band and the new album Opus I: Subtle Movements From Within.
Guitars
The band's first guitarist Mehmet Turan, who recorderded on the band's first EP Opus I Excerpt, not only participated in composition, but also designed the band's logo and helped with artwork.The most recent guitarist Ashar Kazi recorded on the new album. He added tasteful solos and fine details to his parts and put a lot of time and effort into making this happen.
Bass
Alchemy Chamber's first bassist Marco Restagno, was a Capilano student. An aspiring young musician with great skills and taste, he was the one to record bass on the EP.
The current bass player Zenon Shandro was first recruited as a one-time sesion bassist for a NYE show in the end of 2015. He, however, really liked the music and has been Alchemy Chamber's semi-permanent bassist ever since.
With the help of everyone mentioned (and more), Alchemy Chamber is bringing dark moods and gothic beauty into carefully created classic scores. The wordless, purely instrumental expression of the wide spectrum of human emotions, bringin into focus the dakr, somber, undiscovered side of one's self, leaves the compositions open for interpretation, encourages introspective reflection, and lets every listener find their own meaning in the music.

ASHES OF ARES kehren mit dem lang erwarteten Nachfolger ihres selbstbetitelten Debütalbums zurück. "WELL OF SOULS" präsentiert eine erhöhte Intensität und einen breiteren Sound, der auf dem Fundament des ersten Albums aufbaut und die Songwriting-Partnerschaft von Matt Barlow und Freddie Vidales weiter festigt.
Van Williams, ehemaliges Ashes Of Ares-Mitglied und enger Freund, steuert die hämmernden Drum-Beats bei, während Jonah Weingarten von Anfang an mit einem mitreißenden Intro auf das Album Stimmung macht.
Heute veröffentlicht das Duo den Song "Soul Searcher".
  Hier gibt's den Track inkl. Lyric-Video:
https://youtu.be/9xnp1TA1CrA  
Matt Barlow kommentiert: "Freddie's music really inspired me to delve once again into one of my favorite realms of mythology. The lyrics came about as I was listening to the music and thinking about a form of desolation and despair, that would be nearly impossible for a mortal being to contemplate. I was trying to articulate this on a deeply personal level, while keeping the theme within the mythos of vampiric lore. This is the story of a victim who has been tortured throughout many lifetimes. This man, at one point, was the willing recipient of a "gift", but is now damned to roam the Earth for eternity. Soulless and isolated, as he searches for the one to whom he had once devoted his life. This is a cautionary tale...."
"Well Of Souls" erscheint am 9.11. über ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records.

WELTSCHMERZ – “ ILLUSTRA NOS”
Weltschmerz (from the German, meaning world-pain or world-weariness) is a term coined by the German author Jean Paul and denotes the kind of feeling experienced by someone who understands that physical reality can never satisfy the demands of the mind.The Dutch gentlemen that make up the band Weltschmerz felt that this moniker suited their brand of Black Metal perfectly.

One of the best tracks off the new Crawl record would be Black Rituals which US site Toilet ov Hell had the pleasure of premiering. You can check it out AT THIS LINK
"If you’re a fan of the modern Swedeath sound (think like-minded wretches Gutter Instinct and Henry Kane), you have some idea what to expect. Big energy, big riffs, and big nasty."

LP Box Set / LP / Autographed Silver-embossed CD Box Set / CD / Merch / Digital
Genre - Death Metal
Release Date - August 20th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - Dismember, Skitsystem, Feral, Paganizer, Gatecreeper, Bloodbath, Down Among The Dead Men, Master
From the label that put out releases of Paganizer ,
Henry Kane and Ursinne which upheld the brand of Swedish death metal, you have Crawl unleashing their debut full length that sets new standards for the style. Crushing Swedeath honouring the progenitors and at the same time stepping out their shadows by concocting a vile mix with influences of punk/crust and hardcore is what's on offer here. 'Rituals' is an irreverent exercise in bombarding the classic style with fresh elements and lending to the staid style new vitality. Prepare to be shocked, annihilated and thrilled at the prospect of listening to the new masterpiece.

BLACKGAZERS AVAST RELEASE VIDEO AND SINGLE FROM UPCOMING ALBUM :  Norwegian Blackgazers AVAST, whose debut full-length album "MOTHER CULTURE" is set to hit the streets on Dark Essence Records on the 26th October, have released a second single from the album, as well as an accompanying video by Ivar Vasstveit, about which the band has this to say:
"An Earnest Desire" is a tale about human ambition and how our desire to achieve great accomplishments often ends in catastrophe. The video emphasizes that ambition, and also shows how small and helpless we may appear in our interaction with nature and all of its forces.
The video, for the track "An Earnest Desire", can be seen at
 
https://youtu.be/VkNuu9XSOHw
Whilst the single itself can be heard at, and purchased from, the following:
http://smarturl.it/AnEarnestDesire
Hailing from Stavanger, Norway, AVAST consists of Hans Olaf Myrvang (AGENDA) on bass and vocals, Trond Salte (AGENDA) and  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 centred around the usual black metal topics, but tend more towards a philosophical and poetical take on social and environmental issues.
With artwork by Ole Nymoen, the track-listing for Mother Culture is as follows:
1. Mother Culture
2. The Myth
3. Birth of Man
4. The World Belongs to Man
5. An Earnest Desire
6. Man Belongs to the World
"Mother Culture" will be released in CD, Digital and limited edition white vinyl formats, and is now available to pre-order from:

VALDUR released this statement concerning the forthcoming album:
"Valdur - Goat of Iniquity: another chain of songs containing deep extremities and primitive, suffocating atmospheres.  This is not a continuation of our previous release; this album moves backwards in a far more violent structure and sound; like a deathmetal cassette from 1988.  'Goat of Iniquity' was recorded by us and us alone in the Bloody Mountain Bunker, with no triggers or other redundant studio shortcuts.  Vicious underground metal recorded in a live setting.  Not for trendy ears!  For Valdur, 'Goat of Iniquity' is another step deeper into the obscure halls of integrity."
VALDUR is:
Matthew- drums, (vocals on this album)
Vuke- guitar, (bass on this album)
William- bass
JF- vocals
Track List
1.  Divine Halls of Obscurity: Pt. I

The US black metal scene is full of surprises. Just when you least expect it, comes a band with fresh ideas and remarkable execution. California-based Imperialist are one such band. Check out No Clean Singing's stellar premiere of their new song AT THIS LINK.
"The melodies in the song also evolve, rising and falling with a mood of implacable bleakness, shimmering in a way that’s both melancholy and poisonous, and shivering the skin through long, dismal reverberations."

Genre - Black Metal
Release Date - October 20th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
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.

Veteran black metal band Dødsferd have come up with their new full length album titled 'Diseased Remnants of a Dying World'. It's as emotionally powerful as you have come to expect from them and this probably ranks as their finest album till date. You can stream the song on YouTube or Bandcamp.
DØDSFERD (GREECE) - 'DISEASED REMNANTS OF A DYING WORLD'
Genre
- Black Metal
Release Date - December 14th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - Shining, Ulver, Darkthrone, Burzum, Gaerea, Weakling, Lifelover, Nigredo, Lifelost
Greek black metal heroes Dødsferd have been toiling hard in the underground, releasing albums with untainted passion and bold vision. Be it their raw black metal sound that they started off with, or their excursion into DSBM and black/punk styles, they've maintained that all along. On their latest album, they've further refined the sound and take the best elements from everything that they've been known for and much more. The songs are perfectly tempered and resonate with familiar emotions of anguish, hopelessness, and contempt for humanity and its capability for committing despicable acts time and again. This is a dark and fiery album rife with palpable emotions with shades of melancholy and despair. It is a testament to the expressive power this style holds without straying too far from its core sound.
Band lineup  
Wrath - All vocals, rhythm and lead guitars
Neptunus - Bass
Setesh - Rhythm and lead guitars, solos, acoustic guitar

Es gibt Tage und mittlerweile auch Wochen, da will nichts so wirklich was klappen und man hat echt schon oft den Eindruck ,als wäre man mit seinen Energiereserven am totalen Limit angekommen .Arbeit stresst ,das Leben allgemein stresst und auch so hat man den Anschein ,als würde die Zeit ganz einfach nur dahin rasen  ohne dass man wirklich was schafft .Aber um Euch da draußen nun nicht völlig ohne ein Lebenszeichen von uns zu lassen ,hebt man dann wenigstens am Sonntag mal seinen „faulen Arsch“ von der Couch, um Euch dann doch mal wieder mit ein paar aktuellen Neuigkeiten und Terminen rund ums internationale Metalgeschehen zu versorgen .
Aktuelle News /Konzert-& Festivaltermine könnt ihr mittlerweile nun auch auf unserer fratzenbook Seite https://www.facebook.com/Undergroundfanzine/   abgreifen .
Werte Kollegen, LA MUERTE? Yeah, genau die! Die gibt´s seit 2015 nach mal eben 20-jähriger Pause wieder! Das Line-up besteht neben diversen Originalmitgliedern aus Veteranen anderer toller belgischer Bands (Channel Zero, Length Of Time, Arkangel, Wolvennest, Deviate…).
Inzwischen hat man diverse EPs/7"s/Remix/Live-Scheiben unters Volk gebracht, so dass wirklich Zeit für ein neues Studioalbum ist.
"La Muerte" ist der schlichte aber programmatische Titel dieses Prachtwerks.
LA MUERTE sind nun mal LA MUERTE. Das heißt, dass sie machen was sie wollen, sich keinen aktuellen Soundströmungen unterwerfen und sich ihre Integrität bewahren.
"La Muerte" reißt erneut Grenzen ein, ohne auf die eigenen Trademarks zu verzichten, ist heavy, unbequem, roh, authentisch, eben LA MUERTE!
Und hier ist noch eine schöne Beschreibung der Band und ihres Selbstverständnis von den Veranstaltern des Roadburn-Festivals:
“Conjuring extreme, horrifying images of death, addiction, the road and urban violence glued to putrid rock ‘n’ roll and manic-depressive bluesrock, La Muerte released a string of cult-albums and EP’s throughout the 80s and early 90s, which heavily resonated with those abandoned by love or devoid of hope. Even the devil’s rejects found refuge in La Muerte‘s growling, howling, stop / start frenzy, and feedback shivers of guitar burning through the dark cracks of life. ”

CREDIC veröffentlichen brandneues Video zu 'HIGHSPEED CLAUSTROPHOBIA'!Mit „Highspeed Claustrophobia“ steht die zweite Single der Melodic-Deather CREDIC in den Startlöchern. Nach der ersten Auskopplung „Alternate Ending“ treten die Stuttgarter nun das Gaspedal bis zum Blech durch. Getrieben von den Erwartungen der Gesellschaft hetzt man durch's Leben, hofft auf Glückseligkeit und inneren Frieden, doch verliert dabei sich selbst. Highspeed gilt jedoch nicht nur für den Text, sondern auch im zugehörigen Video ist volles Programm geboten! Das Album AGORA erscheint am 12.10. via Green Zone Music/H’Art und schafft bei aller Härte stets den Spagat zwischen Anspruch und Futter für eine ganze Armada an Ohrwürmern.

CHTHONIC veröffentlicht "Millennia‘s Faith Undone"-Akustik-Video, gedreht  in einem traditionellen japanischen Haus :  CHTHONIC hinterlässt dem Publikum normalerweise einen wilden Eindruck; Die Veröffentlichung des akustischen Albums "Timeless Sentence" vor 4 Jahren und der Musikvideos von "Defenders of Bú-Tik Palace" (akustisch ver.) und „Kaoru“ (akustisch ver.) sorgten nicht nur für Furore, sondern führten auch das Publikum an in eine andere Welt, die von CHTHONIC geschaffen wurde.
Nach der Veröffentlichung des Musikvideos ihres neuen Stücks "Millennia's Faith Undone" zu Beginn des Monats, hat CHTHONIC das offizielle Musikvideo der „Aeon's Wraith“ Version (akustische Version) von "Millennia's Faith Undone" mit Denise Ho, beim Mid-Autumn Festival veröffentlicht.
Die ursprüngliche Crew, einschließlich Regisseur Birdy, Hauptdarsteller und Schauspielerin, Finn (
黃士勛) und Chia-Yu Chang ( ), haben das Finale der Geschichte geschaffen. Während des Weißen Terrors hingerichtet, stirbt der Protagonist ohne in Frieden ruhen zu können, noch wird sein letzter Wille an seine Frau und seine Kinder gerichtet. Beginnend mit "Kaoru" (akustisch ver.), kommt die Geschichte schließlich zu einem traurigen Ende, das auch ein traumatischer Moment in der taiwanesischen Geschichte ist.
Seht das Akustik-Video hier:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzNL3me01H4
Um die Zeiteinstellung in dem neuen Album originalgetreu zu präsentieren, hat Birdy die Produktion des Musikvideos in der historischen Architektur des Yilan Literatur Museums stattfinden lassen.
Das Musikvideo, das in einem antiken traditionellen japanischen Haus spieilt, gibt CHTHONIC eine delikate Atmosphäre, die sich von ihrem Auftritt auf der Bühne unterscheidet. Denise Ho, die auf CATHONICs neuem Album mitwirkt, zögerte auch nicht, ihre Vorliebe für diesen Ort zu zeigen als sie zum ersten Mal das Yilan Literatur Museum besuchte.
 In der akustischen Version von CHTHONIC-Musikvideos ist das Kostümdesign in der Regel eher "zurückhaltend". Der frostige Stil von Bassistin Doris gab dem ganzen eine entscheidende Note, die die ganze Crew beeindruckte. Doris war dankbar für die harte Arbeit der Hair- und Make-up-Künstler. Im Vergleich zu den früheren Metal-Versionen von Musikvideos, die mehr dramatischen Ausdruck und mehr Gestik als Live-Performance erfordern, bevorzugte sie das Shooting für die akustische Version, da sie eine natürlichere Körperbewegung des Alltags ermöglicht. Darüber hinaus erklärte Frontmann Freddy, dass er, um sich auf das Musikvideo vorzubereiten, sein etwas rostiges Erhu-Spiel auffrischen musste. Nach einem anstrengenden Tag im Parlament musste er noch bis späte in die Nacht üben. Er scherzte auch: "Glücklicherweise bin ich nicht zu oft im Bild, da ich mich einige Male verspielt habe."
CHTHONIC veröffentlicht am 12. Oktober das neue Album „Battlefields Of Asura“, fünf Jahre nach ihrem letzten Album. Obwohl "Millennias Faith Undone" (akustische Version) nicht auf Album enthalten ist, wird es als Single auf Vinyl veröffentlicht.
Erwähnenswert ist, dass dies das erste CHTHONIC-Vinyl sein wird. Als leidenschaftlicher Vinyl-Sammler kündigt Jesse Liu, der Gitarrist von CHTHONIC, aufgeregt an, dass er der Erste sein muss, der das Vinyl hat, sobald es fertig ist, da er es kaum erwarten kann, es in seiner Sammlung zu haben!

Post Mortem erschafft musikalische Landschaften aus intensivem und modernem Post | Sludge | Doom Metal, in denen sich schwere Riffs und Drumbeats mit atmosphärischen Passagen abwechseln. Kristiens bezaubernder Gesang und Gitarrist Pieters rauhe Stimme erzeugen einen einzigartigen stimmlichen Kontrast.

Splendidula ist eine Post/Sludge/Doom-Formation, die seit 2008 besteht und nun ihr zweites Album veröffentlicht.

Eine neue Besetzung, ein anderer Sound und ein kohärentes Konzept kreieren einen melancholischen und atmosphärischen Release.”

Blood and Gore für die Ohren! So langsam fühlt man es: Der Winter naht... Und wir verspechen Euch, er wird düster und creepy, denn DROWN MY DAY sorgen ab November für ordentlich Gänsehaut und laden mit neuem Album im Gepäck zum Deathcore-Horrortrip der Extraklasse!
2006 in Krakau gegründet, gehören DROWN MY DAY inzwischen längst zum festen Establishment der polnischen Szene. Zu Recht, blickt das Quintett bis dato doch nicht nur auf eine erfolgreiche Full-Length- und zwei EP-Veröffentlichungen, sondern auch auf unzählige Shows und Tourneen sowohl inner-, als auch außerhalb Polens zurück. DROWN MY DAY brennen mit ihrem wütenden Mix aus modernem Death Metal und technisch versiertem Hardcore ganz einfach jedes Dach ab!
Mit 'THE GHOST TALES' erscheint das zweite Full-Length-Album von DROWN MY DAY am 16.11.2018 (VÖ) exklusiv bei NOIZGATE Records.
Gleich zehn prickelnde Thriller servieren die Krakauer auf ihrem neuen Werk. Drückend schwere Midtempo-Riffs, Doom-, Death- und Hardcoreeinflüsse und eine ordentliche Ladung Groove sorgen für Gänsehaut im Nacken und eine angemessen düstere Atmosphäre, wenn Fronter Maciej 'Groov' Korczak mit tief grollender Grabesstimme seine J-Horror inspirierten Gruselstories vorträgt. Höllisch spannend, unfassbar heavy, fesselnd und creepy: Blood and Gore für die Ohren!
Lust auf eine kleine Kostprobe? Mit 'BATTLE ROYALE' ist heute bereits eine erste Singleauskopplung erschienen.

DRAGONHAMMER OFFICIAL STATEMENT: The quit of Max Aguzzi from DragonhammeR is certainly a fact that has sensibly shooked us up and that will cause a significant change in our future. However, it was not a sudden event like a ”bolt from the blue”. For several months we have been preparing for this change, for finding new arrangements and to move on.
We worked hard to find two new musicians, the most suitable to play the role of voice and second guitar of the band, but above all, who are lovers of the DragonhammeR family and of everything that revolves around it. We will therefore have the pleasure of officially announcing the two new members next week.
In the meantime, we want to communicate to everyone, from fans to insiders, that DragonhammeR will continue to play. And we will do it in all the venues planned for the “Obscurity European Tour” and we are also working hard with our staff to include new dates in many other European countries.
”May The Dragon always keep his hammer high with pride and honor!"DragonhammeR

This here is one of our most ambitious releases, and if you've been following our catalog, this is a culmination of sorts. It's essentially a mix of our death metal bands such as Heads For The Dead, Ursinne and Paganizer, and it's only fair that Nattravnen have members of most of them, backed with a terrific storyline concocted by ex-Death, ex-Massacre vocalist Kam Lee. You can preview one of the songs exclusively on Bandcamp HERE. 
NATTRAVNEN (INTERNATIONAL) -  “ KULT OF THE RAVEN”
Genre - Death Metal
Release Date - December 7th, 2018
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records (India)
For fans of - (early) Amorphis, (first) Darkthrone, Cemetary (Sweden), Heads For The Dead, Ursinne, Bloodbath, Unleashed
Original Death and Massacre vocalist Kam Lee gives one of his best performances here. Nattravnen is about the legend of Night Raven, for which Kam has written an actual story, in addition to complete lyrics of the album. Jonny Petterson of Heads For The Dead, Wombbath has created sublime music that is death metal laced with black metal and atmospheric doom elements, while being devastatingly heavy in his trademark style. Together the duo has concocted not only one of the most interesting death metal albums of this era, but also one with rare lasting value and superior musicianship. This is essentially dark death metal with better expression and scope. Juanjo Castellano of Revel In Flesh and Carnation fame is responsible for the magnificent album artwork and even the label owner Kunal Choksi chipped in with the band logo. All in all, this is one of the most important releases to come out which sets new standards for the style altogether.

DARK ITALIAN  METALLERS SELVANS REVEAL DETAILS AND ARTWORK OF UPCOMING ALBUM : Dark Italian Metallers SELVANS have released details of their second full-length album.  Titled "FAUNALIA", the album is set for release on Avantgarde Music on the 2nd November, and will be available in Digital and A5 CD formats, as well as a double gatefold vinyl and a limited edition wooden box.   At the same time "Faunalia"   will also be released on cassette by Folkvangr Records.
Sub-titled  "A Dark Italian Opus", "Faunalia" is the work of SELVANS mastermind Haruspex, in which he explores elements of history, myth and Italian folklore.  It is an album that features tones that are dramatic, and at times even horrific, drawing from a variety of influences that range from Italian dark-progressive, to symphonic in the cinematic style of ENNIO MORRICONE, to neo-folk.
For the recording of "Faunalia", SELVANS' Haruspex and Fulguriator have, for the first time,  been joined in the studio by the band's live members HK on drums and Acheron on guitars, as well as by a number of guests including Agghiastru (INCHIUVATU), Mercy and Gianluca Virdis (IANVA),  and Tumulash (FIDES INVERSA). 
Recorded in various studios throughout Italy,  "Faunalia" was produced by Haruspex, and was mixed and mastered by Haruspex and Acheron at the Atrocity Exhibition Studio.  With artwork by Haruspex and Ghoul, tracklisting for "Faunalia" is as follows:
I. Ad Malum Finem
II. Notturno Peregrinar 
III. Anna Perenna
IV. Magna Mater Maior Mons
V. Phersu
VI. Requiem Aprutii
More information about SELVANS can be found on the band's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/templeofselvans or on their website at http://www.templeofselvans.co
Dear Friends in the Press and Media worldwide -  we're happy to present you the second bludgeoning LP by dark crust punk vandals ATRAMENT. This ill be a collaboration between Sentient Ruin, Blood Harvest Records, and Caligari Records (infos below).
Atrament (who feature in their ranks current and past members of Vastum, Necrot, Mortuous, Abstracter, Moral Void, and Black September) return with "Scum Sect", a thirty minute sophomore offering of sprawling hostility and of marvelously regressed sonic barbarism. Fusing together crust/anarcho punk, black and death metal with classic Swedish D-Beat, Atrament draw influence from bands like Doom, Discharge, Deviated Instinct, Skitsystem, Craft, Darkthrone and Dismember to instate widespread terror and summon total sonic warfare. Scum Sect is a must listen for any fan of Wolfpack/Wolfbrigade, Skitsystem, Gehenna, Vallenfyre, Acephalix, etc.
The release has already been picked up by various high profile publications who've premiered a track each of the release and expressed marvel at the band's unrelenting and spiteful sonic assault, with
Revolver Magazine calling Scum Sect an "LP of D-Beat destruction", Decibel Magazine calling the band a "super group" and claiming that Scum Sect is "another new vehicle for the members' black misery", and CVLT Nation finally exclaiming that Scum Sect is a "D-Beat apocalypse".
Indeed tapping into a new realm of barbarism, Scum Sect, is Atrament's most vile and malevolent music to date and one of the most violent and wretched heavy punk albums of the year. Within the total chaos and endless destruction of these harrowing thirty minutes, the listener will face a world riddled with plague and torment that appears hopeless and torn as an utter firestorm of crashing d-beats, shrapnel-infused riffs, and abhorrent atmospheres is unleashed upon them with methodical hostility.
You can check out more info and announcements on Atrament's new album through
Earsplit PR.
While the nightmarish artwork which graces the work was once gain crafted for the band by dark surrealism master Stephen Wilson, Scum Sect’s monstrous sound and low end crush depth was achieved once again within the walls of Earhammer Studios in Oakland CA, the famed lair of sound engineer wizard Greg Wilkinson (Acephalix, Vastum, Autopsy, Undergang, Noothgrush), while the pulverizing and thick as concrete mastering was achieved once again at Audiosiege in Portland OR by mastering guru Brad Boatright (Nails, Full of Hell, Vallenfyre).
Scum Sect is slated to release on September 28 2018 through Sentient Ruin (tape/US vinyl), Caligari Records (tape co-release), and through Blood Harvest in the EU (CD/EU vinyl).
Sincerely, Sentient Ruin
NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS ORKAN RELEASE VIDEO OF TRACK FROM UPCOMING ALBUM: Without a doubt, ORKAN's lineup, comprised of founder members Gjermund Fredheim (TAAKE's live guitarist notorious for having created Black Metal's only banjo solo) and  drummer Rune Nesse, along with bassist Sindre Hillesdal and frontman Einar Fjelldal (ex-GRAVEMACHINE), are well qualified to able to create an uncompromising sound that is not just emotion-filled, but also varied.
Having recently debuted the track "I flammar skal du eldast", from their latest album "ELEMENT", the Norwegian Black Metallers now show just how varied their sound can be, with the release of a video for the track "Heim", which can be seen at
https://youtu.be/hQ_kqCeeM9U
As drummer Rune Nesse explains:
We are excited to present Orkan's very first music video! ”Heim" is a song that clearly stands out from the rest of the tracks on our new album, "Element", and, when choosing which track to use in the making of a music video, we were all quick to agree on this particular song.  When filming we set out to convey the mood and atmosphere of the track and we're pleased to share the result of this process with you now!
"Element" itself came into being during a particularly difficult time for ORKAN.  Having started on it in 2015, the band had to fight their way through the ravages of cancer and a rare muscular disease, but won through and have produced an album whose songs are more layered  and with a more and complex production than their debut full-length "Livlaus".
It is a ferocious album that deals with the power of the four elements, and stands as an homage to the unforgiving strength of the earth as witnessed by the landscape of ORKAN's native land - the Island of Stord. Whilst taxing in both mind and body to make given the circumstances, the resulting album has proved to be as rewarding as it was difficult to achieve,  drawing you in and totally enveloping you in darkness
With photography by Atle Helland and artwork by Tom Korsvold, the tracklisting on "Element" is as follows:
1. Lenker
2. I flammar skal du eldast
3. Iskald til beinet
4. Motstraums
5. Avmakt
6. Den våte grav
7. Heim
"Element" will hit the streets on Dark Essence Records on October 5th, 2018 in CD and Digital formats and is now available to pre-order from:
https://orkan1.bandcamp.com
https://www.darkessencerecords.no/webshop/
https://darkessence.aisamerch.com   
ORKAN will be joining TAAKE, BÖLZER and ONE TAIL ONE HEAD for the following nine shows on the twenty-date tour:
04.10: U Basyla, Poznan, PL 
05.10: Way of Darkness, Lichtenfels, DE

Hi – Chris and Paul here from Imperative PR . Today marks ten years since THE DROWNING released their classic second album, THIS BLEAK DESCENT. Released on September 25th 2008 through Casket Music, This Bleak Descent was the album where The Drowning really defined their masterful blend of doom and death metal, drawing influence from the early works of the Peaceville Trinity - Anathema, My Dying Bride and Paradise Lost - and adding their own unique atmosphere and dark power. Upon its release, Zero Tolerance Magazine described This Bleak Descent as a  “majestic collision of Paradise Lost, Bolt Thrower and My Dying Bride” and other major media outlets followed suit with words of praise. Teeth Of The Divine recognised the huge inherent potential in the band's sound, declaring them "more than capable of leaving a sizeable mark on the scene in years to come", while an in depth review from Sputnik Music concluded that the album was a "resounding success".
To mark this auspicious occasion, The Drowning sat down with metal fan, interviewer and pole dancer Eilish Foxen for a special retrospective interview. Interspersed with music and images from the This Bleak Descent era of the band, this is a great look back in time for fans. 
The Drowning will soon be out on the road with Vader and Entombed A.D. around the UK and other huge news about their future will be unveiled imminently - but for now, join the band as they travel back in time to This Bleak Descent...
As part of these anniversary celebrations The Drowning are offering a 10% discount on all products at their bandcamp page, from now until October 31st. Head to
drowningwales.bandcamp.com and enter the discount code BLEAK at the checkout.

The band's debut recording - Tormentore -  features eight tracks of guttural, cavernous vocals, subsonic riffing and insane blast beats. Faces will melt, and bones will be crushed to dust under the weight of this hell-spawned and demented beast.

Finnish melodic death metallers RE-ARMED released new artistic music video for the single ”Built to Last”   https://youtu.be/tcRzVypfWJI
Re-Armed's third studio album, "The Era of Precarity", was released in the fall of 2016 and it’s the band’s most acclaimed release so far. The band toured for the first time in Japan and Spain to support the release. So, the world is more open for these Finns than before. In the fall of 2018, after the numerous tours and shows on behalf of the third album, the band is releasing the new single “Built to Last” via Finnish, Inverse Records, introducing their newer lineup with three guitars. The band comments on the new single:
"The music is more melody-oriented than before, among the kick-ass attitude. Since the last release we have got two new members, meaning we have three guitarists right now, so writing and producing needed some extra brainstorming. The message is about positivity, regarding mankind, that a light might shine at the end of the tunnel and hope is all we have left. We ended up with a very anthem vibe chorus on this one, which makes this a killer track.”
Listen ”Buil to Last” -single on Spotify, Deezer or download it from iTunes
Lineup 2018:
Iiro Karjalainen - Drums
Jouni Matilainen - Lead Vocals

Vancouver (BC) - Canadian neoclassical instrumental metal band ALCHEMY CHAMBER will release their debut full-length album, OPUS I: SUBTLE MOVEMENTS FROM WITHIN, on October 6.  Two official videos for songs from the album are available now. Check 'em out below!
"No. 1 (Dedicated to Doug Gorkoff)"  youtu.be/gx0F1YcfTQ0
"No. 10."  youtu.be/QxO4JKL4X9I
Built around cello and saxophone duets, ALCHEMY CHAMBER is an eclectic mix of genres, featuring captivating melodies intertwined with complex rhythms in a purely instrumental arrangement. The unique sound of the band, which combines heavy riffs and expressive contrapuntal melodic lines, is influenced by classical composers as well as metal bands of various genres.
The songs have numbers instead of names, and the album is referred to as an "Opus" to reflect the classical side and influences of the music. The order truly is chronological, which means the songs on the album appear in the order they were written. Composition No. 1 is dedicated to Doug Gorkoff who has been Anna's cello teacher for the last 10 years and played a significant role in her becoming the musician she is today. This album is meant to take you through the band's creative development and let you experience the continuous thought process the musicians were going through at the time and changes in the flow of ideas as the time passed. Lyric-less, but not voiceless, the album is designed to encourage one's own interpretation of the music while also telling a story about it's own birth between the lines.

BIO
Beginnings and core members: Cello, Saxophone.
Alchemy Chamber is a neo-classical instrumental metal band led by Anna Kuchkova (cello & composition), along with Kevin Arland (saxophone). 
It was founded in December 2012 by Anna who had always had a vision for such project and has finally decided to arrange the first few original cello duets for the band. She has invited Kevin, whom she'd known from past projects, to collaborate. With the addition of the saxophone, the compositions gained a whole new unique colour.
Anna is a classically trained cellist, an active member of the West Coast Symphony Orchestra and chamber musician. In the past she played principal cello in New Westminster Symphony Orchestra, and was a session cellist for various recording projects and live events in Vancouver BC. For years, Anna has also been involved in rock and metal scene. These two completely different worlds intertwine in her approach to composition.
Kevin, Capilano graduate, has played in horn sections for most of his life. He's a member of the South Van Big Band and different jazz groups in Vancouver. He performed with Grammy winning Puerto Rican salsa projects and was a musician on a cruise ship traveling all the way through Asia into Europe. Kevin was not very familiar with the concept of symphonic metal, but liked Anna's writing and the fact that the project was purely instrumental.
While Kevin and Anna remain the core and the face of the band, musicians that have been recruited along the way, contributed a great deal to the project and helped shape the sound into what it is today.
Drums
Julia Geaman has been Alchemy Chamber's drummer since early 2013. She shared responsibilities as a regular member for some time, until recently when her position changed to semi-permanent. Julia is a drum teacher and clinician, drummer in the band Revenger and a session drummer who loves to explore new styles, meet other musicians and travel. After familiarizing herself with Anna's music, she worked hard on creating drum parts that would fit such odd style and instrumentation. Julia's creativity and open-minded approach made a big difference for the band and the new album Opus I: Subtle Movements From Within.
Guitars
The band's first guitarist Mehmet Turan, who recorderded on the band's first EP Opus I Excerpt, not only participated in composition, but also designed the band's logo and helped with artwork.The most recent guitarist Ashar Kazi recorded on the new album. He added tasteful solos and fine details to his parts and put a lot of time and effort into making this happen.
Bass
Alchemy Chamber's first bassist Marco Restagno, was a Capilano student. An aspiring young musician with great skills and taste, he was the one to record bass on the EP.
The current bass player Zenon Shandro was first recruited as a one-time sesion bassist for a NYE show in the end of 2015. He, however, really liked the music and has been Alchemy Chamber's semi-permanent bassist ever since.
With the help of everyone mentioned (and more), Alchemy Chamber is bringing dark moods and gothic beauty into carefully created classic scores. The wordless, purely instrumental expression of the wide spectrum of human emotions, bringin into focus the dakr, somber, undiscovered side of one's self, leaves the compositions open for interpretation, encourages introspective reflection, and lets every listener find their own meaning in the music.

MADDER MORTEM RELEASE NEW VIDEO FROM LATEST ALBUM :
"Liberator" is the declaration of intent from "MARROW" - it's our call to arms. It's a reminder to not make yourself smaller to appease others, but to sink your teeth into life and bite off way more than you can chew. Never let them drag you back into line!"
 That's what Norway's MADDER MORTEM has to say about the track "Liberator" from their newly released album "Marrow", and, fittingly, they have chosen to turn the track into a fascinatingly weird new video, once again calling upon the services of Costin Chioreanu to breathe visual life into their "call to arms".
As the band explains:
After seeing Costin Chioreanu's gorgeous artwork in the animated video for "Far From Home", we really wanted to see what his take would be on a filmed video. Costin somehow managed to poke a hole in his incredibly busy schedule, and the video was shot in our home town of Nord-Odal over three hectic days. We wanted something different and unexpected and strange, and we love the surrealist feel of this video.
The video for "Liberator" can be seen at
 https://youtu.be/fSTDNCwrdAc
"Marrow" is MADDER MORTEM's seventh full-length album, and one in which the band pursue a heavier, doomier, but at the same time, catchier, path, with Agnete M. Kirkevaag's powerful vocals leading the way through eleven tracks that range freely over a variety of genres and soundscapes; from delicate ballads to powerful metal, via folk/prog and a touch of the avant-garde.
Produced by BP M. Kirkevaag, and mastered by Peter In de Betou at Tailor Maid, and with artwork by the legendary artist Thore Hansen, "Marrow" hit the streets on the 21 September on Dark Essence Records in Digipak CD, Digital, and Limited Edition Green Vinyl Gatefold LP formats. More information about MADDER MORTEM can be found on the band's website at
http://www.maddermortem.com/ or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/mmortem/
MADDER MORTEM's recently debuted "Far From Home", another track from "Marrow",  in the form of a video by the noted Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu, which can be seen at https://youtu.be/8DIDksyQJUk
Finland's CORPSESSED will break a four-year silence this fall with the release of IMPETUS OF DEATH. Featuring eight crushing tracks of obscure death metal, Impetus of Death is due out November 23 on Dark Descent Records. 
Impetus of Death track listing:
Impetus of the Dead
Sortilege
Endless Plains of Dust
Graveborne
Paroxysmal
Forlorn Burial
Begetter of Doom
Starless Event Horizon
Many things have changed since the 2014 release of the band's acclaimed first full-length album, Abysmal Thresholds. Main composer and guitarist Matti Mäkelä finally found some time to resurrect his funeral doom project TYRANNY and release one crusher of an album (also on Dark Descent) in 2015. A year later, CORPSESSED found a new bassist in Tuomas Kulmala (LIE IN RUINS and PERDITION WINDS). And over the course of four long years, CORPSESSED completed their second full-length Impetus of Death, an album that manages to top it its predecessor in terms of heaviness and brutality while taking their epic sound a step further.
"We've never been that fast composers" admits Mäkelä. "But the atmosphere must be there, the riffs must be killer and everything has to be top notch. Plus, we knew we needed to raise the bar this time. So all the band members contributed and we had three separate demo sessions of almost all the songs. It was quite time consuming but invaluable while thinking of the big picture, even more, so we've once again recorded the album ourselves."
The recordings took place from November 2017 to February 2018 in their rehearsal place, with extra help from their label-mates LIE IN RUINS and DESOLATE SHRINE, Dan Lowndes from Resonance Sound Studio took care of the mastering last April. 
The album's title was inspired by the impression that, indeed, it is "death itself that sets things in motion, be it the fear or lurking presence of your own demise, or the death of a loved one. It can be seen as a force that moves us and sets a timeline for our very existence. This you can view as either something very grim and nihilistic, or on the contrary, the very thing that gives your life a meaning or the power to do anything. To create you must also destroy - 'solve et coagula' right? - where death gives birth to something new.... This is life, and death is an essential part of it. And the music we play, is DEATH METAL so what's more fitting than this?"
Impetus of Death is completed by a fitting and disturbing artwork by Mattias Frisk from VANHELGD whom Matti met in 2015 in Copenhagen while playing the 'Heavy Days in Doom Town' fest with PROFETUS. 
"We told him to do what he felt would fit the music, but devoid of the usual clichés like mystic figures in robes, goat-headed priests and nude girls on altars," recalls Mäkelä. "We also wanted it to be in colors this time around as all our previous covers were in black and white." 
Simply put, the second full-length from CORPSESSED is brutal; although it doesn't feel the need to break the 250 BPM barrier to show how tough it is. Still rooted in the classic sound of the early 90's yet with its own doomy touch, it's really Impetus of Death's uncanny ability to bring forth a quite unique form of creepiness, almost cinematic in places and quite claustrophobic that sets them apart. As Matti puts it best, "What can I say? We like to keep things evil and ominous."

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. 
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.

1. At The Nexus of All Stillborn Worlds
2. Accursed
3. Lethe's Shroud
