Crust + Death + rotzige Attitüde = DEATHRITE?! Vielleicht.. aber in dieser Band steckt so viel mehr. Erbarmungsloses Touring, stets fette Merchmotive, eine Ärsche-tretende Liveshow und und und. Dabei hat sich die Combo über die Jahre immer wieder neu erfunden und stetig weiterentwickelt, was zuletzt im Deal mit Century Media und in anschließender Langrille Nightmares Reign kulminierte.

The band was conceived by Alex, the project's founder and current guitarist of the band. As it was founded in May 2018 with the proposal to do the Death Metal Old School style, with the characteristic Swedish sound HM2 rules !!!!
Shortly after joining Nadia Monserrath in the gutturals, along with Gabriela Encina  in the bass, after a series of changes in the line-up, Fernando Espinola arrives on drums and Gerard Void on the other guitar, forming Eruptive as an established band. 
ENGROSSED (IT)
Hannes started Engrossed back in 2018 as a side project while Sepolcro was coming back after several years. The one man band project started randomly because in that period friends left guitars and other instruments at his rehearsal studio and he picked them up and started to write some riffs. After a couple of weeks he recorded his first demo called  "promo '18" released by his own label Dismal Fate Records
https://engrosseddm.bandcamp.com/releases
VORUS (RO)
Conceived in 2017 as a solo project by an old headbanger. An American Death Metal musician relocated to Romania in 2014. Uriel (Necrorite, ex-Morbicus, ex-Gutwrench,ex-Rotting Away, ex-Cryptic Realms, etc, etc). As a solo project Vorus recorded the "Chamber of Laments" demo in august, 2017, later was released in MC tape by Death in Pieces Records (Mex) in October 2017.
In September 2017, Uriel's wife Corina (Romanian 90's metal bassist ex-Deimos, ex-Atys) became part of the band as the permanent bassist.
As a duo Vorus recorded the debut full-length Album “The Wretched Path" in November - December 2017 later released in MC tape format in April 2018 by Death in Pieces Records (Mex) in collaboration with Macabre End Productions (Mex). The CD version came out in July 2018 by Detonation Recs.

ROTHEADS (RO)
Rotheads are a four piece out of Bucharest, Romania, formed back in 2014. Musically they're all about playing 90's infused old school death metal with a lot of eerie melodies on top and punky attitude all over. There's an album out called Sewer Fiends, released in 2018, and earlier in 2016 they put out a demo, Unfazed by Death.

Korporation is proud to announce the new MITHRIDATIC album, “TETANOS MYSTIQUE”, has been scheduled for a September 13 release date.
Three years after its impressive debut full-length, “Miserable Miracle“, soon followed by a full Europe tour with NILE and MELECHESH and a year after audio and video digital live album “He Who Lies underneath“, MITHRIDATIC return with a grim, sick and twisted new album, again mixed and mastered by Francis CASTE at SAINTE MARTHE studio (SINSANEUM, ARKHON INFAUSTUS, DEHUMAN…).
Based on books by Roger GILBERT-LECOMTE, Louis-Ferdinand CELINE and Charles BUKOWSKI, “Tetanos Mystique” is a neauseating beast of infectious Blackened Death Metal that twists rusted knives further into your soiled wounds, with a rictus sardonic and a fetish for madness, fever and disease, the absence of morale and the void you’re definitely not prepared for!
The album will be available as a 500 copies limited edition DigiPak CD first gprint and Digital along with new merch. Preorders will start August 5th.
You'll find the complete track-list, line-up and list of links in the attached press release along with a band logo, picture and the album artwork by Florian DEVILLE.

Maniacs, bevor wir zum Finale kommen wird es abermals düster! Heute haben wir einen Undergroundleckerbissen für euch der all denjenigen die auf frühe Dissection, Watain oder Ondskapt stehen das Wasser im Munde zusammenlaufen lassen sollte.
Die drei genannten Größen sind definitiv Einflüsse der Bande namens VOODUS aber hier gibt es noch vil mehr zu entdecken, schließlich handelt es sich um eine gestandene Band und keinen überflüssigen Klon. Segelte die Brigade von 2004 bis 2015 unter dem Name Jormundgand durch die Lande, so ist seit der EP Night Queen Schluss damit. Die anschließende EP Serpent Seducer Saviour sowie das 2018 erschienene Album Into the Wild bieten, genau wie der Erstling, düsteren Black-Death - manchmal scheppernd, manchmal schleppend, manchmal hoch-melodisch aber stets von kompositorisch allererster Güte. Das wird killer!

Rocker! Bad Omen Records ist ein britisches Heavy-Rock-Label, das von einem alten Bekannten geführt wird.
Will Palmer kennen viele von Euch noch als einen der Köpfe hinter Rise Above Records und natürlich von den famosen Angel Witch. Bei Bad Omen setzt Will ausschließlich auf Heavy Rock mit Old-School-Werten.
Eins der Pferde im Stall sind die schicken MIRROR aus – hört, hört – Zypern, die – logo – altschulig durch die Speaker rocken.
Hinter MIRROR steckt u.a. der ehemalige Bassist von Electric Wizard und Satan´s Wrath, Tas Danazoglou.
Das zweite Album "PYRAMID OF TERROR" ist eine unironische und durch und durch herzblutige Liebeserklärung an den klassischen 70er-Rock, die Großtaten von Rainbow (mit Dio!) und die basische Energie der NWOBHM irgendwo zwischen Di´Anno-Maiden und frühen Angel Witch mischt.
Ihr wisst jetzt bestimmt, was wir meinen…
Lasst Euch auf eine Reise in den klassischen Metal/Rock ein, die auf wundersame Weise die üblichen Genre-Klischees umschifft und Euch lange begeistern wird!

SYSTEMHOUSE33 - "END OF DAYS"
Label :
Self-Released
Country: India
Genre: Metal
Starting off in the small Indian town of Nagpur back in 2003, SystemHouse33 was founded by vocalist Samron Jude. Their resilience and hard work has paid off, making SYSTEMHOUSE33 one of the top metal bands to emerge from the country of India.
The new album “End of Days” is deeply influenced by the book of Revelation and is a progression from their earlier album “Regression”, released in 2016. After “Regression”, which focused on the disintegration of the world we live in, “End of Days” takes it to the next level - the great tribulation, rapture, and the apocalypse among other events.

TYRMFAR – “RENEWAL THROUGH PURIFICATION”
Genre:
Melodic Black/Death Metal
For fans of: Kataklysm | Immortal | God Seed | Nile
Label: Mtaf Records
Release Date: June 22nd 2019
In an age of chaos, an age of grief, the lost and the broken remnants of humanity swarm beneath the condemning gaze of dark gods. A thousand individual tragedies are played out unseen in the mass of screaming, bleeding, desperate souls; each one insignificant to those who have come to judge and dispense justice. Collectively mankind has been found wanting and the sentence is annihilation. An unspoken moment arrives and the vast tableau falls silent, the last second of existence for a doomed species and then unimaginable power is unleashed...the purification has begun.
Those steps towards destruction, that last held breath and then the explosion of a soul-scorching firestorm is encapsulated perfectly in the opening two tracks of Tyrmfar's gargantuan Renewal Through Purification. The grandiose, portentous notes of 'The Arrival...' bring the promise of stories to be told, of vast, black clouds gathering and filling the endless skies - and then, after a fraction of a second where utter terror floods the mind, '...Of The Legions Of Eternity' is upon you! The endless thunder of the drums obliterates the silence and black majesty, wild power held within a steel grip, descends. Yet Tyrmfar are about so much more than simple domination, as remarkable emotion burns between the towering ramparts of brute force riffs. Melodies steeped in loss and pain weave their way through the overwhelming avalanche of destruction - holding you hypnotised, captivated even as your inevitable doom crashes towards you.
Hailing from the mountains of Switzerland, Tyrmfar's story began in 2013 and their ascent has been a rapid one. Their first release was the 2015 EP, In The Depths Of A Dark Spirit which was followed in 2017 by the superb Human Abomination album - hailed by Daily Rock as "bloody and invigorating". The band were soon playing major European festivals like the massive Metal Days event and performing with giants of extreme music like Krisiun; nor were they out of place on such bills with Daily Rock naming them "artists who can shake the most seasoned headliners of extreme music festivals." All that experience has now been poured into the creation of their game-changing second album, Renewal Through Purification. This collection of breathtaking songs, due out in June through MTAF Records is a magnificent fusion of the atmosphere of black metal and the power of death metal. This is Tyrmfar announcing themselves as true contenders on the world stage, ready to carve their bloody path to the throne.
Tyrmfar are coming...prepare to be judged.

DISOWNING – “HUMAN CATTLE”
Please find below the debut full-length by international (Canada & France) Death Metal band DISOWNING, "Human Cattle", set for release on July 12 via XENOKORP.
Produced by Sylvain BIGUET (ATARAXIE, IMPUREZA, TREPALIUM...) and with artwork by Rémy C. / HEADSPLIT Design (KREATOR, ARCH ENEMY, SKINNED...), this is Death Metal for the final century in this new Anthropocene era, mixing both Old-School, Brutal Death Metal and Technical Death Metal but never falling into any niche, focusing on the long-lost art of quality song-crafting, not unlike their label-mates of AD PATRES, SKINNED or INSAIN (RIP).
Overview
Trends come and go in every musical genre and Death Metal is no exception with the current trends of Brutal Death Metal, Technical Death Metal, Blackened Death Metal or even “Cavernous” Old-School Death Metal all bringing countless soulless clones but nothing new to the table besides a few innovative bands blending styles yet bringing the genre to a whole new leven. DISOWNING -like its labelmates of AD PATRES, SKINNED or INSAIN– is one of them.
True to the origins of the genre yet firmly rooted in their time, DISOWNING avoid entrapment in niches of any kind, using their high level of musicianship to shape surgical weapons yet never forgiving the sadly long lost art of songcrafting.
This is a desolated and desparate world the international (Canada & France) band fronted by ex-OFFENDING singer Jesus the Butcher, depicts with debut full-length, “Human Cattle“. A world where rats are leading rats to their common end: self-destruction. But don’t be fooled by the bleak future you think you envision through “Human Cattle” for what’s on display here’s not about tomorrow, it’s today’s state of the weakened world address.. You’ll hardly get a better sight, front row and center, to Mankind’s ultimate end. Please be sitted. Fasten your seatbelts. On to the bottomless downward spiral into the abyss.
Surgically crafted by gifted sound-engineer Sylvain BIGUET (ATARAXIE, IMPUREZA, TREPALIUM…) and viscerally illustrated by world-reknown graphic artist Rémy C. of HEADSPLIT Design (KREATO, ARCH ENEMY, INSAIN…), “Human Cattle” is one of those few genre-bleding and mindmelting masterpieces that will stand out with time as true classics… if Humanity ever survive itself.

BIO
One year ago in April drummer Pale Horse (Disfigured Dead/NilExistence) was looking to start another band, and reached out to people who might be interested. Among the parties was Llord Diabolus (ex Violent Fury/Infernal Thorn, Maantrix) who joked of starting a Darkthrone worship band. The two have known of another through shows in the past but never really talked too much. They met to jam and see if anything took root a week or so after the initial talk, and that day wrote the first track on the EP: “From Throne to Funeral”. The title for that song summoned up a lot of key musical fusing and the initial Darkthrone worship joke was spun into “more Dark Funeral than Throne!” After that day The Pale Horse contacted Svartherre (Disfigured Dead/NilExistence) who plays in NilExistence to join the new band. After that the group quickly composed the five tracks over the next months, and entered the studio to record live the debut EP entitled Beyond the Veil of Light.
PESTIS INFEROS is:
Llord Diabolus - Bass, Invocations
The Pale Horse - Artillery, Voices
Svartherre - Guitar, Chants

AD PATRES – “ A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO HUMAN EXPERIMENTS”
Away from all trends, AD PATRES continues with “A Brief Introduction to Human Experiments”, the path started with their critically-acclaimed debut, “Scorn Aesthetics” : the glorious Death Metal path on which brutality and technique are used as means, not as aims.
Much more aggressive than redundant Slam Death, way more direct and uncompromising than boring Tech Death and without an ounce of the regressive nostalgia of the “Old-School", AD PATRES creates the perfect balance between musicianship and heaviness, topping it with lyrics delving deep into the human mind’s darkest recesses.
As such, “A Brief Introduction to Human Experiments” makes a somber parallel between psychology and religion, blurring the thin line between those two mind-manipulation “schools” clearly showing psychology is the new Christianity and psychanalysts the new inquisitors of the “right way of thinking” through a relentless, pure Death Metal, album that dissects both (religion and psychology), like twisting the brain in a split wide open skull.
Not recommended for the faint of heart, this is French Haute Suture.

NOCTURNAL WITCH - "A THOUSAND PYRES"
Country: Germany
Genre: Black Metal / Thrash Metal
Line up:
Baphomet - Drums
Tyrant - Vocals, Guitars
Nocturnal Witch was unleashed in 2009 by brothers Tyrant and Baphomet, united both in blood and musical direction, sharing a will to horrify mankind with their blackened thrash attack! You can expect a mixture of old greek black metal with german thrash metal, all this combined into the classic south american sound. Simple yet aggressive, "A Thousand Pyres" is a further development to its predecessor that sees the band adding more black metal into their magic potion. You'll find eight tracks full of pure aggressiveness, hate and destruction.
Recorded and mastered in October/November 2018 at Temple of Disharmony (Patrick W.Engel).

ORBSTRUCT - "PHOBOS RISING"
Label : Self-Released
Country: Ukraine
Genre: Extreme/Death Metal
Line-up:
Yevhen "Goreon" Kravchenko - lyrics, vocals, guitars, bass
Vladimir "Fok Lok" Belotserkovsky - drums
Drawing inspiration from bands such as Bloodbath, At The Gates, The Haunted, Arch Enemy or Carcass, the main ideological component from ukrainian death metallers Orbstruct is inspired by the idea of agnosticism, atheism, self-improvement and self-development, purely from a human, material point of view through the recognition of the inevitability of negative consequences from their actions or the events of the surrounding World, after which finding a way out of a difficult situation and turning negative circumstances into a blessing. Such a trait of human nature on the one hand, as a way to overcome own fears and uncertainties about the future, on the other - self-deception and a desire to imagine that nothing bad is happening.
From a spiritual point of view, the recognition of the main statements of agnosticism in relation to religion and higher powers. And while an atheistic view of the very participation of these forces in a person’s life is an indifferent or negative attitude towards this affirmation and recognition of oneself, a person as a thinking being, the first and only source vitality and energy, and the sole master of his past, present, and future.
The main ideological inspirers for Goreon and Fok Lok for the whole time of writing and recording "Phobos Rising" were mostly Swedish death metal bands, without forgetting the influence of the American school of death metal, which slightly removed from the foreground the desire to focus on the melodic component of the compositions and was mixed with a powerful aspiration, drawn-in riffs, and a combination of melodic and energetic moments.
For the last two decades, Kharkov has been known around the world as the capital of Ukrainian Black Metal, which influenced the work of Orbstruct, given that the participants themselves took part in many Kharkov black metal projects, some of which are known far beyond Ukraine, such as Barkasth, Elderblood, Sokira Perun, KZOHH, Ygg, among others.
Another interesting fact about the album is that "Phobos Rising" was recorded and mixed at ViterMusic Studio; a studio where most of the masterpieces by the mastodons of the Ukrainian black metal scene DRUDKH were recorded.
At the moment, the band is already writing their sophomore studio album. The recording sessions are scheduled to begin in late 2019 - early 2020.

Denver (CO) - Tech Death Extremists VALE OF PNATH have joined forces with MetalSucks for the premiere of forthcoming EP ACCURSED.
Stream Accursed  http://www.metalsucks.net/2019/05/10/full-ep-stream-vale-of-pnath-accursed/
Pre-order:
Order via Willowtip    http://www.willowtip.com/bands/details/vale-of-pnath.aspx
Order via Bandcamp   https://valeofpnath.bandcamp.com/album/accursed
The band's second EP following two acclaimed full-lengths (2011's The Prodigal Empire and 2016's II), Accursed is fueled with Tech Death adrenaline and shrouded in black metal's iniquitous aura. Those complementary qualities enhance what is unequivocally another giant step forward in penetrating songwriting dynamics. Concision with depth describes the five proper compositions, while the cold, mechanistic opening soundscape "Shadow and Agony" and chilling interlude "Audient Void," are equally vital in completing an EP that is best absorbed as a holistic musical experience, albeit one that is the stuff of nightmares. The picture painted is a bleak one, the intensity unleashed nothing short of devastating to the nervous system and traumatic to the psyche.
VALE OF PNATH will join DARK FUNERAL, BELPHEGOR, INCANTATION, and many more extreme bands on the Devastation on the Nation North American Tour. Dates are as follows:
5/18 – Oakland, CA – Oakland Metro

VALE OF PNATH Bio:
The Vale of Pnath is a vast pit in the underworld, filled with a mountain-sized heap of bones and is the spot into which all the ghouls of the waking world cast the refuse of their feastings. Enormous worm-like creatures burrow through the Vale and often carry with them helpless victims, where they are left to die.
Vale Of Pnath is a five-piece extreme metal band from Denver, CO originally formed in 2006 by guitarist Vance Valenzuela, bassist Alan Paredes, drummer Jeremy Portz and vocalist David Lercher. Guitar virtuoso Mikey Reeves-Juarez joined the lineup and two years later the band recorded a blistering 4-track EP with Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Cephalic Carnage, Allegaeon) where upon its self-release was met with overwhelmingly positive reviews within the technical and melodic death metal community.
In 2009, Tribunal Records reached out to the band and re-released the self-titled EP.
In 2010, Ken Sarafin (Sarafin Concepts) takes over on vocal duties and the band signs with Willowtip Records. The Prodigal Empire was released worldwide in 2011 with massive outpouring of support from the tech death community. The band began to develop a following as they regularly gigged locally and regionally before Ken had to step down, unable to commit to touring as he was focused on his career in art and graphic design. 
Enter longtime friend of the band Stevie Boiser (Calculating Genocide, Dissonance In Design) and new full-time drummer Eric W. Brown (Inferi, Destroyx3, Swashbuckle). The band embarks on several tours throughout the U.S. supporting acts such as Vital Remains, Gorod, Abiotic and Enfold Darkness.
Mikey left the band in 2014 and was replaced briefly by the prodigious Harrison Patuto (Dissonance In Design), before Harrison needed to leave the band world to concentrate on other efforts. Stevie also said good-bye to shift his focus elsewhere, leaving a void in the Pnath and open positions for both guitar and vocals.
Eloy Montes (Flub) fills the spot on guitar, and fresh blood Reece Deeter (Apotheon) shows up in the nick of time to offer his vocal talents and willingness to adapt to new surroundings.
In December 2015, Vale Of Pnath headed back over to Flatline Audio to record the second-full length effort with Dave Otero. Vale Of Pnath II is the band’s most melodic and technical effort yet, and thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, was released on June 2016 via Willowtip Records.
VALE OF PNATH is:
Reese - Vocals
Vance Valenzuela - Guitar 
Harrison Patuto- Guitar

"Lust And War" offers a relentless and charismatic approach, as well as a DIY production aimed for all the lovers of the good old speed metal sound from the 80's, which is sparkled with some heavy and punk influences in the vein of ACID, ZNÖWHITE, AGENT STEEL, S.D.I., VECTOM, etc.

Brazilian thrashers RED RAZOR have revealed the cover artwork for their sophomore album “THE REVOLUTION CONTINUES”, as well as the lyric video for the track “Violent Times”.
“Violent Times” is a fast and infectious old school style thrash metal song crafted specially for the ones missing the good old days of headbang, stage dives and insane mosh pits. The lyrics talk about the rise of violence in modern world caused mainly by religious intolerance and social inequality.
The lyric video pays homage to several political activists who were murdered in the past three years in Brazil. More than 100 deaths were registered by Amnesty Inernational since 2016, which puts Brazil at the top of the list of the most violent for political activists, human rights defenders and LGBTIs, something the band is definitely not proud of.
You can watch the lyric video at this location:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrOgfxTzLE4
The artwork was done by Andrei Bouzikov (Violator, Municipal Waste, Autopsy, S.O.D., Toxic Holocaust and others).
The track was recorded, mixed and mastered by Alexei Leão at AML Studio and it will be available at all streaming outlets such as Spotify, Deezer, iTunes, etc.

FALLEN TYRANT - "CHILDREN OF A NUCLEAR DAWN"
Labels : Bleeding Heart Nihilist Prod. / Narbentage Produktionen (Tape)
Country: Germany
Genre: Black Metal
Line-up:
Mithras Sol Invictus - vocals, electric & acoustic guitar
Nihlathak - electric bass, vocals, additional guitar
Sperrfeuer Heretic - battery
Founded in 2008 as a solo project, Fallen Tyrant have been going about their wretched business as a power trio in the German Rhein-Main area since the beginning of 2011. The marching order was clear since the first collective demo, after which Fallen Tyrant perfected their own blend of brute 90s black metal, a distinct heavy metal impact and psychedelic influences. Locked away from the world in some obscure basement in Darmstadt, without limitations by trends or what the pretentious wannabe black metal elite deems to be "true", the three musicians spend their days slowly forging one slab of pure hatred after another, only to sporadically appear on equally obscure stages in full facepaint and aurally assault confused audiences.
Fallen Tyrant play old-school black metal. Not more and certainly not less. Soaring tremolo riffs, furious blast beat attacks, droning distorted bass and harsh and angry vocals are the armament of this South-Hessian war machine. But on the seven songs of the second full-length album, Children of a Nuclear Dawn, they manage to use these most conservative means to inflict maximum creative damage. And this is not only due to special features like subtle saxophone and synth appearances on "Shifting Tides Along the Rhine" and "Astronomy" or scattered clean vocals parts, but simply through original and intelligent songwriting with charakter, skills and melody – as well as a good sense for the roots of heavy music.

The debut and self-titled work by Germany's Voidhaven contains two epic compositions with a total duration of 18 minutes.

London based Black Metal sextet TABLEAU MORT announce the release of their debut studio album titled VEIL OF STIGMA BOOK 1: MARK OF DELUSION for this Summer 2019 in collaboration with Loud Rage Music. The complete material was recorded between July 2018 –February 2019 and then mixed and mastered by Neil Haynes at the well-known Parlour Studios UK.
Drawing on symbolic and thematic influences from Romanian Orthodox Christianity, the album is a spiritual journey exploring humanities fixation with knowledge, sacrifice and perfection, which is often a path to madness. Whilst TABLEAU MORT describe themselves as a Black Metal band, there are many aspects and layers to their sound, delivering modern and powerful music. Drawing inspiration from across the many sub-genres of metal, TABLEAU MORT value the creation of an atmospheric and emotional sound, that is both melodic and melancholic. Vocally, TABLEAU MORT mix Orthodox chanting with frenzied screams to expand on their macabre foundations.
Here’s a taste of the band’s sound, the single Fall of Man:
https://youtu.be/5oFsbNIzn5g
TABLEAU MORT is:
George Topor – guitar/keys/backing vocals
Cristian Giurgiu – guitar
George Bratosin – drums/backing vocals
Radu Vulpe – guitar
Marek Basista – bass
James Andrews – lead vocals

BRANNTHORDE – “DIE LETZTE ALLER WAHRHEITEN” (EP)
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Astat Entertainment / Silent Pendulum Records
VÖ: 19.04.2019
Seit 2018 als Trio unterwegs melden sich BRANNTHORDE mit „Die Letzte Aller Wahrheiten“ zurück und schlagen ein nächstes Kapitel nach dem 2014 erschienen Album „Auf Teufel Komm Raus“ auf. Die am 19. April erscheinende EP ist Startschuss für deutlich mehr Aktivität der Band. Neben Roman Hilser (Fuck You And Die) und Giuliano Barbieri (ehemals Der Weg Einer Freiheit, Fuck You And Die) gesellt sich nun auch Michael Kadnar (Downfall Of Gaia, The Number Twelve Likes You) zur Band. Das Schlagzeug für die EP wurde in den Backroom Studios mit Kevin Antreassian (The Dillinger Escape Plan) aufgenommen. Die Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft lässt jedoch keinesfalls auf freundliche Töne auf der EP hoffen. Thematisch bleiben BRANNTHORDE hässlich, musikalisch räudig und dennoch wirkungsvoll. „Die Letzte Aller Wahrheiten“ beschäftigt sich mit der Idee, dass alles kein gutes Ende nehmen wird. Mit Recht!

Maniacs, wer den deutschen Undergorund ein bisschen im Blick im hat, dem wird aufgefallen sein dass die Releaseflut der letzten Jahre ein wenig abgeebbt ist, wobei wir dennoch eine Menge (qualitativ guter und sehr guter) Bands zur Verfügung haben die weiterhin abliefern und noch immer auf dem aufsteigenden Ast sitzen.
Eine der besagten Bands sind ganz klar CARNAL TOMB aus Berlin, die trotz ihres noch recht jungen Alters mit ranzig-oldschooligem Songmaterial auftrumpfen und keine Gelegenheit auslassen ihren alten Vorbildern zu huldigen. 50%HM2 + 50% geile Attitüde = 100% Fieser Oldschool Death Metal mit Nackenschmerzgarantie!

With “THE HUNTER”   FIRESPAWN are releasing the second single of their up – coming studio album entitled “ABOMINATE”, which will be released via Century Media Records on June 7th .  
A.Impaler: “ The Hunter is a perfect example of what I mean when I say that Firespawn always thinks outside the box and always aiming to evolve. It is Death Metal but it’s no way near traditional Death Metal, it’s Firespawn! Enjoy!" 
Featuring current and ex-members of Entombed A.D., Necrophobic, Unleashed, Dimmu Borgir, and Dark Funeral, Firespawn dutifully followed in the footsteps of the genre’s grand masters on previous albums Shadow Realms (2015) and The Reprobate (2017), but unlike their storied peers, the Swedes dexterously imbue ample amounts of heavy metal—riffs and solos—into their brutish cacophony on new tracks like “Death and Damnation,” “Heathen Blood,” “The Great One,” and “Blind Kingdom.” 
The unlikely pairing of heaving, beastly death metal and ultra-melodic solos creates a new, must-hear dynamic. With L-G Petrov’s foul growl in supreme shape and Firespawn blasting on all cylinders, Abominate is a top contender for Death Metal Album of the Year. Bow to the extraordinary power of Firespawn now!

German metallers RETERNITY have set May 31st as the release date for their debut full-length "FACING THE DEMON". Featuring 13 compact and extremely multi-faceted and stylistically wide-ranging tracks, which despite their versatility can be aptly summarized under the definition of "metal",  the spectrum ranges from hard, speed and thrash metal influenced neck breakers to hymnic melodic songs as it's the case of the title-track.
"Last Days Of War" is the first video of the band from ex-SpiteFuel frontman Stefan Zörner, Carsten Sauter (Pyroclasm/Mighty D), Semen Brik (Echo.Mensch) and Sascha Beul (Remember Twilight, Darknes Ablaze), and it's a sweet foretaste of what it's coming.

BURN DOWN EDEN - "LIBERTICIDAL"
Label : Kernkraftritter Records
Country: Germany
Genre: Melodic-Death/Shred Metal
Burn Down Eden was established in 2012 and finally found it´s genre in 2014. After a first EP ("Memoirs of Human Error") in 2015, Burn Down Eden released their first full-length album "Ruins of Oblivion" the year after. Two years later, Burn Down Eden released their follow-up „Liberticidal“. With a more in-depth approach, where the band aimed for perfection and paid extra attention to all their technical details, "Liberticidal" features catchy choruses and melodies which are paired with brute, fiddly riffs and modulations, fast solos and classical elements. The new singer Pether brings the old-school Melodic-Death growls to it. Burn Down Eden are showing their full potential on this album and aren’t backing down from big names. Sure, they do not reinvent the wheel, but this album absolutely has unique selling points!
At the moment Burn Down Eden are looking for shows. If you happen to know someone interested in booking them, please get in touch.

DRONTHEIM - "DOWN BELOW"
Label : Wraith Productions
Country: Norway
Genre: Industrial Rock / Alternative Metal / Experimental / Avant-garde
For fans of :  Rammstein, The Prodigy, Seigmen, Zeromancer, Ljungblut, NIN, My Dying Bride, Ulver, Red Harvest, DHG, Faith No More, Peeping Tom, Anathema, Katatonia, Kent, Ved Buens Ende, 3rd & the Mortal, The Soundbyte, Calmcorder, KkoagulaA, Manes, Atrox.
Born from an idea by guitarist -viNd- during a hiatus in his other bands Manes and Atrox, he recruited a group of comrades that he knew had the live and studio experience he needed to get this group off its feet, and thus Drontheim was established.
Drontheim plays music on the edge of post-rock and alternative metal, infused with large amounts of atmospheric and cinematic passages, with the sound being sometimes distorted and strict and other times dark and emotional. The members of Drontheim are or have been involved with bands such as Manes, Atrox, Khonsu, Bloodthorn and more.
Conceptually, Drontheim is rooted in an alternative reality of World War II, and the many “what if’s” in relation to the outcome of the war. The band is strictly non-political with no collective agenda on any level except the artistic one, but the inspiration grew from a strong interest in WWII in general, and more specifically the German vision for Neu Drontheim - New Trondheim - as the new capital for the Germanized Scandinavia. Lyrically it can be considered part documental and part fiction, but as a whole it is focused on the dark and dystopian union of audible, lyrical and visual expressions that enables the artistic atmosphere Drontheim seek to provide.
“Down Below” is their debut album, but they have released a handful of digital singles and music videos earlier. They have been an active live band, and have a tour lined up for early 2019 in support of the album.
Line-up:
-viNd- : guitars, computers, synth, lyrics

Genre: Synth-heavy dark droning black metal
Gold Are The Ashes Of The Restorer' is the debut album from Synth-heavy dark droning black metal act Golden Ashes.

Russian Slavic folk metal band SIETA has started a crowdfunding on their debut album "NOVGOROD".
VIEW THE CAMPAIGN: https://igg.me/at/Novgorod
The album is based on real events. It involves the times when in the 10th century knyaz Vladimir declared christianity as the state religion of Rus. He forced the people to renounce paganism. But there was one region that did not obey his will аnd fought for its freedom. This was Novgorod.
The album represents the opposing forces of the knyaz and the people of Novgorod using black metal and folk metal. The lyrics are in two ancient languages: Old Russian and Old Church Slavonic. They also represent paganism and christianity in the album.
In addition, as part of the crowdfunding campaign, Sieta has also made a full-band cover video of the legendary Forefather.

Today, Dutch black metallers VERWOED premiere the new single "VERDER VAN HET LICHT" via popular metal magazine Invisible Oranges. The song features Ryanne van Dorst from highly acclaimed Dutch doom rockers DOOL.
VERWOED's first full-length album, "DE VAL" will be released on May 23rd, 2019.
The album track "De Kwelling van het Bestaan" was premiered exclusively via Decibel Magazine at
  https://www.decibelmagazine.com/2019/04/19/track-premiere-verwoed-de-kwelling-van-het/
In a fiery and intuitive attempt to come closer to the infinite nothingness inevitable after the palpable lives we live, 2014 saw the birth of Woudloper in Utrecht; at the heart of the Netherlands. After the release of a self titled demo and a change in shape, VERWOED was born and the "Bodemloos" EP saw the day of light in 2016 — an ode to mankind’s struggle for knowledge and truth in the mundane planes that we inhabit and finding revelation in the destruction of our flesh and hearts. 
Three years later, after leaving destructive footprints on multiple cities in the form of live appearances, the first full-length, entitled "De Val", recorded, mixed and mastered by JB van der Wal, will be released. A hymn to the fallen one, breaking free from all things familiar and safe in a seemingly never ending search for divine truth. 
"De Val" is a collaborative effort by Argento Records (vinyl), Sentient Ruin Laboratories (vinyl) and Tartarus Records (cassette).
Tracklist:
1. De Val
2. De Kwelling van het Bestaan
3. Vergif
4. het Bedriegende Oog
5. Verder Dan Het Licht
"Hailing from Utrecht, VERWOED is one of the most exciting bands to spearhead the New Wave of Dutch Black Metal, a new generation of musicians on the rise, and even developing a cult of their own. The band’s much acclaimed debut EP, 'Bodemloos', delves deep into paranoia and schizophrenia - Verwoed’s malicious, darkened feel offers a visceral ascension into full-blown psychosis. It serves as a hallucinogenic exploration through harrowing black metal, and dense, melodic ambience, which is both terrifying and soothing - catharsis through ugliness and utter beauty".

TORMENTOR BESTIAL - "SUPPLICIUM PLUS QUAM BESTIA"
Label : Music-Record
Country: Brazil
Genre: Thrash metal
Founded in 2008 in the city of Taubaté, São Paulo, Brazil by Luiz Amadeus and his son Niko Teixeira, the goal with Tormentor Bestial is to offer a heavyweight thrash metal sound, showcasing their writing skills by combining the ferocity from Brazil, the melody established in Europe and an american production.
"Supplicium Plus Quam Bestia" feels brutal, with heavily present guitars, crushing riffs and leads and fast-paced driving drums, with the voice adding some heavy metal sauce in the vein of Judas Priest to their thrash sound.
With this album, Tormentor Bestial are not looking to reinvent the wheel. Instead, they have worked with all the elements from bands that have influenced father and son while growing up and made their own music world around it.

CRESTFALLEN QUEEN- "QUEEN OF SWORDS"
Country: Germany
Genre: Prog Doom Rock
Crestfallen Queen hail from Stuttgart, Germany, but could have very well been born anywhere in the dark hazy fog of the seventies.
The quintet was formed in 2016 playing their brand of progressive blackened rock. The doom laden riffs are backed by galloping metallic rhythms and hounded by eerie synths which are then topped off by a majestic voice that lurks somewhere between this world and the next. Following the release of their completely analogue recorded, produced and quickly sold-out demo cassette „No More Let Life Divide What Death Can Join Together“ (released February 2018) the debut album „Queen of Swords“ presents the detail-loving and unconventional soul of Crestfallen Queen in full length.
„Queen of Swords“ is full of passion and devotion, which is impressively underlined by the hand-drawn cover artwork of the Peruvian artist Jose Gabriel Alegría Sabogal. Inspired by ancient philosophy and mythology, the epic work tells the long forgotten stories of fallen heroines and their struggle with loss, fears, drugs, human abysses, self-empowerment, love, life and death. With „Queen of Swords“ History mutates into „Herstory“ and reveals frightening parallels to the realities of life of our time.
Crestfallen Queen are not to be taken light heartedly. The unconventional length of the songs speak for themselves where the music is challenging and stirring, a lot like life itself. Anyone who has seen the band live can feel the frankness of this statement. The bittersweet membrane between pain and ecstasy. Goosebumps running down your back at the sound of the hellish screams alternating with a siren-like tenderness. Fury. Beauty. Death. Life. The rediscovery of everyday repressed emotions. Good. Evil. Alpha and Omega. Everything is one. One is everything. Solve et Coagula. Defeat and triumph. Rise and fall. The dialectical relationship of man being thrown into the best of all worlds. We fall and we get up again. This is Crestfallen Queen - the Queen of Swords. A catalyst. A poetess. The one who unmasks. Inviting us to the knowledge of our limited time on this earth and to meet one and others with sincerity.

HELSOTT Confirmed For 'PAGAN WARRIORS ACROSS EUROPE' FALL TOUR  : The Southern California-based pagan death metal group HELSOTT has announced the initial dates of their second European tour of 2019, which will see the band join Skyforger, Finsterforst, Enisum and Khors on the “Pagan Warriors Across Europe” tour in October and November. The trek includes a stop at the Dark Troll Festival's 10-year anniversary celebration on October 26 in Eisleben, Germany. The initial batch of confirmed shows appears below, with additional concerts to be announced in the near future.
“We were honored and quite surprised to be invited to play the 10-year/'best of' Dark Troll Festival show in October, considering we have never played the fest before,” says HELSOTT vocalist Eric Dow. “Perhaps the future is being looked at from the past? This tour is going to kick so much ass! It's going to be a treat to watch and take part in. It's going to be dark, brutal, melodic, in-your-face pagan fun. We are stoked on the whole lineup but it will be a bit more special for us to share the stage with pagan metal godfathers Skyforger, who have been flying the flag since the mid '90s!”
In addition, HELSOTT will headline this weekend's West Coast final of the ongoing Wacken Metal Battle competition, the winner of which will represent America at Germany's annual Wacken Open Air festival's international battle-of-the-bands this summer. The show takes place at Hollywood's legendary Viper Room on May 11. 
Dow, who has co-promoted several preliminary California Wacken Metal Battle shows in recent weeks, says he's looking forward to the event. “I have been extremely proud to bring these Wacken Metal Battles to California and they have been very impressive to watch,” he says. “We love The Viper Room, so when my L.A. partner, Andrew Bansal at Metal Assault, suggested we guest headline the California final, it was a no-brainer to say yes.” 
HELSOTT recently completed a successful West Coast tour with Ashes Of Ares, their second U.S. tour in support of their latest album “Slaves And Gods.” Last fall, the group celebrated the album's release with a number of shows alongside Korpiklaani and Arkona. The vocalists of the latter band, Masha Scream and Lazar, were among a number of guest musicians who appeared on the album, joining the likes of Dr. Leif Kjonnsfleis (TrollfesT), Trollmannen (TrollfesT), Damna (Elvenking), Lethien (Elvenking), Dom Crey (Equilibrium, Nothgard) and Kevin Storm. 
Earlier this year, HELSOTT crossed the pond to perform at Germany's Wacken Winter Nights, where they shared the stage with a number of prominent pagan and folk metal acts, and the 11th annual Cernunnos Pagan Festival, which took place in suburban Paris. The shows marked the group's first European dates since a tour with I Am Morbid and Necrophagia in 2017.
“Slaves And Gods” – which includes a rollicking cover of Tom Petty's “Runnin' Down A Dream” – was mixed and mastered by J-F Dagenais (Kataklysm, Misery Index, Despised Icon) and features cover art by Felipe Machado Franco (Iced Earth, Blind Guardian, Rhapsody of Fire). Physical copies on CD and limited-edition blue marble vinyl can be ordered via the M-Theory Audio webshop. 
Since forming nine years ago, HELSOTT – whose name means “fatal illness” in Old Norse – has paid homage to pagan cultures and mythologies while keeping true to their American influences. The group first caught the attention of audiences on a large scale during the 2013 Paganfest North American tour, where they performed with Ensiferum, Tyr and Trollfest. They built further momentum the following year via their debut full-length, “Woven,” behind which they toured alongside Arkona and Heidevolk, and on subsequent tours with the likes of Necrophagia and Tengger Cavalry. 
HELSOTT on tour (more dates TBA):
5/11 Los Angeles, CA – Viper Room (California Wacken Metal Battle final)
10/25 Eindhoven, NL – Dynamo
10/26 Eisleben, DE – Wiesenhaus (10 year Best-Of Dark Troll show)
10/27 Ostiava, CZ – Banak Music Club
10/28 Brno, CZ – Melodka
10/31  St. Maurice, CH – Manoir Pub

Stream "Outpost"   https://toiletovhell.com/premiere-nucleus-take-death-to-the-far-reaches-on-outpost/
Nucleus will release new album Entity June 14 on CD via Unspeakable Axe Records and vinyl LP via Me Saco Un Ojo Records. The title track is streaming at  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amaU2Wj_7sg&feature=youtu.be
Pre-orders:
CD/Tape   https://tinyurl.com/yx9gwr2r
Digital/CD/Tape  https://unspeakableaxerecords.bandcamp.com/album/entity
At eight tracks deep and nearly 40 minutes long, Entity is an atypical death metal album in almost every other way that matters. It finds Nucleus leaning harder into their influences, and following their own strange impulses, more than ever before. Riffs come and go in dense, syncopated knots of alien harmony; vocals are reverberated growls and sometimes drifting, almost subliminal clusters of eerie clean singing. With punchy, aggressive drumming and bass work, this is an album that never sacrifices the full-frontal assault side of the genre in its pursuit of the peculiar. But at the same time, it is a deeply peculiar album, uncompromising in delivering the auditory version of a hard science fiction novel.
With conceptual lyrics by the band and stunning 2-panel art by Adam Burke, Entity is bound to be one of 2019's most talked-about releases in the extreme metal realm. The album will be available on CD, tape and digital formats from Unspeakable Axe, with a concurrent vinyl release from Me Saco Un Ojo in cooperation with Unspeakable Axe. Preorders begin shipping end of May.

INNERSPHERE releases a new videoclip – „Impure“ . A new videoclip – Impure – by Innersphere was just released. This song is present at their last full-lenght album AMNESIA, which was released in April 2018 under Metalgate records. On the waves of gloomy melodic-death metal we are told a short story of a life in sin and impureness. You can feel the flames of your pyre following last tones of this lament… This clip was recorded at a live set in Brno, during Within Destruction tour where Innersphere supports their death metal mates Nahum this year. Marek from Frodys Audiovisual Arts stands behind its creation.
„It is our third and probably also a last video to this album. We made this clip for this song due multiple reasons. One of them is to remember this tour, which is the first of this kind we do during our history. We play along great bands (Nahum, Purnama), who are our good friends and also we get a lot of energy from this tour. Also we wanted to celebrate a year anniversary since our first full lenght album Amnesia was released… We chose this song – Impure – for a different attitude to its composition. The song is darker and more progressive than those previously released. This song is following our band almost from the beggining of our activity, also it is musicaly interesting song. But that’s not all. This song is also a confession and I personaly really like it… As an feature, it was formerly written on accoustic guitar...
About the clip making. We chose Marek Frodys for directing/camera/cut this time and we chose him well. Our cooperation went really good and we are maximally satisfied. We believe, that viewers will be pleased as much as we are.“ said  Mira Litomericky
In this period, the band is working on a material for a next album. If you want to see them live, you can visit festivals: Metalbarsfest (CZ), Death Coffee Party (CZ), Goat Hell Festival (CRO) or Folkmetal fest (CZ)… The band will also continue second leg Within Destruction tour in Autumn this year on multiple places in Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland.

UK Black/Death Metal Duo ITHEIST have partnered with Heaviest of Art for the premiere of "NETER AMON," a track from the band's forthcoming self-titled debut album. Stream the song and check out an insightful interview with the band below.
"Neter Amon"  https://www.heaviestofart.com/blog/exclusive-stream-itheist-neter-amon
Formerly known as Aetherium Mors, UK extreme metal duo ITHEIST will self-release its self-titled debut album on June 21. Album track "Guardian of Baphomet" can be streamed on YouTube or at the Bandcamp link below.
Pre-orders available now at:  https://itheist.bandcamp.com/album/itheist
Formed by multi-instrumentalist Dan Couch and vocalist / lyricist Kane Nelson, with roots tracing back to 2004, ITHEIST is ready to enter a new phase of existence and creativity. With songwriter Dan's involvement in multiple musical projects over the years (including Black/Death Metal band Carcinoma and Black/Thrash band Holodomor among others) making a marked impression on his writing style, the new album brings together blackened melody with dissonance, creating a unique style of extreme metal. Elements of classic bands such as Death, Carcass and Dissection collide with more experimental bands such as Akercocke, Ulcerate and Gorguts, but without compromising ITHEIST's own identity.
Lyricist and vocalist Kane has upped the ante on previous work with powerful lyrics referencing the fall of Lucifer (the first Itheist) as an allegory for personal strength to shape one’s own reality in accordance with one’s own will. Satanism is uniquely expressed in Itheist's music. Kane explains the lyrical concepts as follows: “Previous lyrics have focused on the repugnant ideals of monotheism and theocracy and why it should be abolished. Itheist’s lyrics focus on forging ones own reality through the Satanic virtue of discipline and creating an environment that cultivates the causal advancement of personal greatness and power, creating a dark and powerful mindset that embraces reality as opposed to the life hating, ghoulish trappings of so many black metal bands.”
The new self-titled album was tracked by Dan in his own private studio. Mixing and mastering was handled by Damian Herring (owner of Subterranean Watchtower Studios and Vocalist/Guitarist of U.S. Death Metal band Horrendous). Damian was a conscious choice through his work mixing and mastering his own music, as well as countless highly respected underground bands such as Blood Incantation, Moss Upon the Skull and Ellorsith. His mixing ethos is a highly dynamic, anti-‘Loudness Wars’ approach, which fits perfectly with ITHEIST's sonic vision.
The incredible stippled-style album artwork is by Manuel Tinnemans (who has also provided art for Spearhead, Scythian, and Lychgate among others), and depicts a horde of demons entering a Heavenly throne room, tearing through celestial beings in an orgy of violent destruction; a fitting visual representation of the album’s musical content.

 NEWS 5.5 2019

ERIDU – “LUGALBANDA”
Genre: Death Metal
VÖ: 10.05.2019
Mit dem Album Lugalbanda lassen ERIDU das Erbe der seit langem untergegangenen mesopotamischen Hochzivilisation wieder aufleben. Benannt nach der ältesten Stadt des Zweistromlandes schlagen die Münchner ein weiteres Kapitel des orientalischen Extreme Metal auf und befinden sich somit auf dem Pfad der Band Gilgamesh, welche bereits seit 2011 aktiv ist.
Nachdem das Gilgamesh-Debut „The Awakening“ große Erfolge erzielte knüpft Mastermind Enki (Ex-Gilgamesh,Vocals, Lyrics, Komposition) nun mit der Gründung von ERIDU im Jahr 2017 thematisch und musikalisch an die Erfolgsgeschichte von Gilgamesh an.
In einer Welt, in der sich die Gesellschaft den rächenden Göttern unterwirft, tradiert Lugalbanda die Epen des gleichnamigen Götterkönigs, Vater des Gilgamesh und durchwirkt die uralten Geschichten mit Black- und Deathmetal. Dabei führen die 10 Songs den Zuhörer durch sagenumwobene Schlachten, obskure Zeremonien und mystische Götterkulte.
Mix und Master von Lugalbanda wurde den erfahrenen Ohren von Christoph Brandes aus den Iguana Studios anvertraut, dem unter anderem der Sound von Finsterforst, Imperium Dekadenz und des legendären Epitaph Album von Necrophagist zuzuschreiben ist.
Getrieben von hohen Tempi und blastbeatorientierten Drums schlägt ERIDU die Brücke zwischen stampfendem Death Metal und melodischem Black Metal. - Düsteres Riffing trifft auf epische Soundwand. Verpackt im erzählerisch orientalischen Gewand steht ERIDU für anspruchsvollen vielseitigen Extreme-Metal, der Genre-Grenzen fließend verschmelzen lässt. Liebhaber von Nile, Melechesh, Behemoth und Keep of Kalessin werden hier voll auf ihre Kosten kommen.

Werte Mitstreiter! Wenn es darum geht, Black- und Death Metal mit im wahrsten Wortsinn höllischer Energie, aber dennoch einer raffinierten Eingängigkeit zu verbinden, gehören NEVALRA ab sofort zu den ganz heißen Tipps.
Der derbe Dreier stammt aus Missouri, tourt sich im Gegensatz zu vielen anderen Genre-Acts kontinuierlich den Allerwertesten ab und ist auch im Studio unüberhörbar eine durchschlagskräftige Einheit.
"CONJURE THE STORM" wurde von Meister-Produzent Dan Swanö (Opeth, Marduk, Dissection, Dark Funeral und viele mehr) erstklassig in Szene gesetzt.
Als Gäste tauchen Andres Vargas (Thy Antichrist) und Mark Kloeppel (Misery Index, Scour) auf. Seth Siro Anton von Septicflesh hat das famose Artwork beigesteuert!
Ab Anfang Juni sind NEVALRA mit CARACH ANGREN, WOLFHEART und THY ANTICHRIST auf großer Europatour. Die Daten findet Ihr weiter unten.

FRETERNIA veröffentlichen erstes Video zum Track "Reborn" aus dem kommenden Album "THE GATHERING"
Der Track stammt vom brandneuen Album "The Gathering" welches am 14.06. auf ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records erscheint. Hier könnt ihr das Video sehen: https://youtu.be/z9HlQZQcygM
Nach 17(!) Jahren Pause melden sich FRETERNIA lautstark zurück. Die Band gehörte zur ersten Liga der schwedischen Power-Metal-Welle der Neunziger. Damalige Genre-Fans wissen Bescheid. Alle Spätgeborenen werden sofort erkennen, dass diese Truppe weiß, wo?s langgeht. "The Gathering" ist das dritte Album von FRETERNIA und ein Lehrstück in Sachen Melodic Power Metal mit Anspruch. Die Band greift dabei auf ihre eigenen stilistischen Wurzeln zurück, verschließt sich aber nicht den Entwicklungen der letzten Dekaden. Das Resultat strotzt vor Energie und Hooks, ist mit Schmackes produziert und verbindet die Erfahrung alter Hasen mit der ungestümen Power einer nach wie vor hungrigen Band.
Das Cover stammt von Stan- W Decker (Monument, Primal Fear, Ten, Ross The Boss, Stryper)

Gäste:
- Johannes Nyberg (ex-Zonata): zusätzliche Keyboards und Gesang auf "Dark Vision" und "Last Fragments Of Sanity".
- Mikael Dahl (Crystal Eyes): falsetto scream auf "Last Fragments Of Sanity".

REDEFINING DARKNESS RECORDS News :
DEORC ABSIS – “THE NOTHINGNESS TRANSFIGURATIONM”
For Fans of: Deathspell Omega, Dodecahedron, and Fleshgod Apocalypse
Deorc Absis hears the breath of the oppressed creature and screams against all kinds of material and spiritual subjugation. Crafted in 2016 by members of Italian brutal death metal acts Logic Of Denial and Sickening, Deorc Absis gathers around a black metal aesthetic without forgetting its own stylistic origins, moving through Deathspell Omega’s revolutionary speech and death metal vehemence.

PSYCHOTOOL – “ ROTTEN PARADISE”
Death Metal Furnace! The german Melodic Death Metallers from Psychotool are just founded in 2016 and  just starting to making their mark on the German scene. Already with their self-produced EP "Toolista" released in 2017, they set a first sign. Now the band present with "Rotten Paradise"  a strong full lenght debut album which is musically mainly based on a kind of Scandinavian Melodic Death Metal.
However, lyrically the band transcends genre-specific boundaries and sees themselves musically as a melting furnace of their own preferences, without wanting to be limited. With this album the band has managed to create a solid Death Metal steamroller from one cast, which should please pretty much every fan of melodic Death Metal!
"Rotten Paradise" was recorded and mixed by the band themselves, while the mastering was put into the hands of Andy Classen at StageOne Studio (Krisiun, Legion Of The Damned), who gave the successful debut its final refinement!
https://www.facebook.com/psychotoolband/
VARGSHEIM – “SÖHNE DER SONNE”
Four years after their last album "Träume der Schlaflosen", the fourth full-length album from Germany's collective VARGSHEIM "Söhne der Sonne" is available. The band itself, which was founded in 2005 and whose musicians are also active as the live line-up of Imperium Dekadenz, has the ambition to improve their work from album to album.
"Söhne der Sonne" unites the charm of the band's rocky, rude predecessor and at the same time also reflects a bit on the conceptual songwriting of the first records - and unites the trademarks of their previous works on a common denominator.  The result is a black-metallic journey that lyrically deals with overestimation of one's own capabilities, self-awareness, human arrogance and the ravages of time. These themes are embedded in a musical foundation that does justice to the content in terms of emotional intensity..
Söhne der Sonne" was mixed and mastered by Nikita Kamprad (Der Weg einer Freiheit) / Ghost City Recordings (e.g. Ancst, Beyond The Black), while bassist Harvst himself is responsible for the haunting cover painting.

Country: Spain
Genre: Thrash Metal
Line up:
Speedhammer - Drums
Cryptic Molestor - Vocals (lead), Guitars Gaueko - Bass
This is old-school thrash metal from Spain, where these 11 tracks can be translated into hate, blasphemy and total decadence. An effective debut full-length where Nuclear Revenge serves us technical and fast thrash metal riffs with vocals that resemble early Sepultura's work, and with solos being dropped all the way! Technical, precise and diversified, "Let the Tyrants Rise" is a promising debut by a promising thrash collective!

LAANG  - "HǍIYÁNG "
Genre: Atmospheric black metal
Country: Taiwan
Line-up: Yáng Tāohǎi
Label : Talheim Records
Laang is a terror black metal band from Keelung City Taiwan, born from horrifying experiences of what lies beyond life by the band’s sole member after being shot during a car-jacking gone wrong nearly a year ago. During the following weeks after being shot, experienced what he can best describe as “a place beyond Hell” while in a coma in the hospital. This world beyond death that he experienced brought incomprehensible terror and desolation beyond explanation. The band’s debut album Hǎiyáng
 encapsulates this horrifying otherworld of emptiness, inhuman madness, and crushing terror.

DEITUS’ SOPHOMORE album originally saw the light of day late 2018 on CD format through I, Voidhanger Records and on cassette via Dawnbreed Records. The latter now issues a limited run on vinyl in cooperation with Vinyl Compvlsion. This gem made available on pitch black as well as ceremonial white wax. 90 and 190 copies respectively. Release date is set for 10th May 2019.
The London-based three-piece can be considered as one of the leaders of a new generation of black metal. Already impressing with the 2016 debut “Acta Non Verba” they refined their compositional skills on “Via Dolorosa”. Heavily rooted in the tradition of grim black metal DEITUS don’t shy away from using sinister melodies reminding of acts like Dissection. And even showing respect to days of yore when the NWOBHM ruled supreme. The title track being a prime example. 
Showcasing magnificent musicianship DEITUS stand out in a scene where everyone else seem to copy what has been done before.  With additional guitar leads by S of Qrixkuor and William Jackson of Inconcessus Lux Lucis things really fall in place. Adding the outstanding production courtesy of Greg Chandler (Esoteric) at the Priory Recording Studios we can easily state “Via Dolorosa” is a contemporary black metal classic!
Make sure you catch DEITUS live on stage in 2019 too. They will appear on renowned festivals such as Incineration Fest in London, Odyssey to Blasphemy III in Germany, and Sangre y Fuego para Mictlantecuhtli in Mexico. Besides that a US-tour is in the works as well.
Do not miss out on DEITUS’ sonic adversarial terror!

Experimental Grindcore act VAULT DWELLER have signed with Horror Pain Gore Death Productions and have been confirmed to play this year's Maryland Deathfest.
Horror Pain Gore Death Productions welcome VAULT DWELLER to the roster with new EP EXISTENCE AT A DISTANCE! Hailing from Dallas Texas, VAULT DWELLER emerge from the arid southern underground to unleash five tracks of Grinding Death/Thrash fused with Blackened Crust Punk aggression and a total DIY mentality. Existence At A Distance is chaotic, energetic and intense experimental Grindcore, setting a new standard for the underground scene. For fans of Assuck, Full Of Hell, Insect Warfare, Napalm Death, Repulsion and Terrorizer 
Catch VAULT DWELLER live at Maryland Deathfest XVII, Sunday May 26th at Soundstage in Baltimore Maryland!
EP track "Bad Gateway" is now streaming at  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFQVTr-Ilkg&feature=youtu.be
Vocalist / Soundscape designer Emma Lytle comments on the EP:
"The ideas behind the album, and Vault Dweller in general, are a mix between taking a non-serious approach to grind, and writing serious music about issues/feelings that are close to us. The music we write together is very methodical yet straight experimentation every time. Lyrics-wise I write about anything we're feeling; our inevitable post-apocalyptic future, from that dumb joke we made during practice, the pitfalls of social media and ego, dissociating because of anxiety, or being mad at the cops for always shutting down our shows. Themes and feelings of a post-apocalyptic society are prevalent in both our music and lyrics."

1. Ego Beast
2. Raider Waster

Single: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iK9sp4f4_CQ

The song will be included in the band's second full length, to be released next july. It was recorded, mixed and mastered by Alexei Leão at AML Studio in Florianópolis, Brazil and the artwork was done by Marcelo Dod.

EXCRUCIATION  - "[E]MET"
Country: Switzerland
Genre: Doom Death Metal
Zurich's extreme metal pioneers EXCRUCIATION have influenced the Swiss heavy metal scene in the 80s together with bands like Celtic Frost, Messiah and Coroner.
After seven furious years, several records and hundreds of shows, in 1991 their sheer aggression forced them to take a rest. The band eventually came back in 2005 with all original members rejoining forces to unleash doom, death and mayhem on stage.
EXCRUCIATION have an almost endless story to tell and a lot of metal in their luggage: After four critically acclaimed studio albums and several other works, including splits with Heavydeath and Stig .C. Miller (Amebix), the Zurich metal veterans will release a new record on March 22. On „[E]MET“ you'll find a comprehensive compilation of rare songs that have been produced since the reunion in 2005: 16 songs, 76 minutes with tracks written for splits, sampler contributions, cover versions, B-sides and many more delicacies. Most of them only released on vinyl or MC.
With [E]MET, EXCRUCIATION will forge their versatile influences ranging from 80s Post-Punk and Crustcore to oldschool Black and Doom Metal into a new piece of extreme metal! The world gets darker and so is EXCRUCIATION.

Eugenio Meccariello - vocals

GOREGANG (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.

The band's second EP following two acclaimed full-lengths (2011's The Prodigal Empire and 2016's II), Accursed is fueled with Tech Death adrenaline and shrouded in black metal's iniquitous aura. Those complementary qualities enhance what is unequivocally another giant step forward in penetrating songwriting dynamics. Concision with depth describes the five proper compositions, while the cold, mechanistic opening soundscape "Shadow and Agony" and chilling interlude "Audient Void," are equally vital in completing an EP that is best absorbed as a holistic musical experience, albeit one that is the stuff of nightmares. The picture painted is a bleak one, the intensity unleashed nothing short of devastating to the nervous system and traumatic to the psyche.

Bio:
The Vale of Pnath is a vast pit in the underworld, filled with a mountain-sized heap of bones and is the spot into which all the ghouls of the waking world cast the refuse of their feastings. Enormous worm-like creatures burrow through the Vale and often carry with them helpless victims, where they are left to die.
Vale Of Pnath is a five-piece extreme metal band from Denver, CO originally formed in 2006 by guitarist Vance Valenzuela, bassist Alan Paredes, drummer Jeremy Portz and vocalist David Lercher. Guitar virtuoso Mikey Reeves-Juarez joined the lineup and two years later the band recorded a blistering 4-track EP with Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Cephalic Carnage, Allegaeon) where upon its self-release was met with overwhelmingly positive reviews within the technical and melodic death metal community.
In 2009, Tribunal Records reached out to the band and re-released the self-titled EP.
In 2010, Ken Sarafin (Sarafin Concepts) takes over on vocal duties and the band signs with Willowtip Records. The Prodigal Empire was released worldwide in 2011 with massive outpouring of support from the tech death community. The band began to develop a following as they regularly gigged locally and regionally before Ken had to step down, unable to commit to touring as he was focused on his career in art and graphic design. 
Enter longtime friend of the band Stevie Boiser (Calculating Genocide, Dissonance In Design) and new full-time drummer Eric W. Brown (Inferi, Destroyx3, Swashbuckle). The band embarks on several tours throughout the U.S. supporting acts such as Vital Remains, Gorod, Abiotic and Enfold Darkness.
Mikey left the band in 2014 and was replaced briefly by the prodigious Harrison Patuto (Dissonance In Design), before Harrison needed to leave the band world to concentrate on other efforts. Stevie also said good-bye to shift his focus elsewhere, leaving a void in the Pnath and open positions for both guitar and vocals.
Eloy Montes (Flub) fills the spot on guitar, and fresh blood Reece Deeter (Apotheon) shows up in the nick of time to offer his vocal talents and willingness to adapt to new surroundings.
In December 2015, Vale Of Pnath headed back over to Flatline Audio to record the second-full length effort with Dave Otero. Vale Of Pnath II is the band’s most melodic and technical effort yet, and thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, was released on June 2016 via Willowtip Records.

LORD VICAR - "THE BLACK POWDER"
Country: Finland, Sweden, UK, Switzerland
Genre: Doom Metal
"The Black Powder" is the fourth album from Lord Vicar. It was, like the previous album "Gates of Flesh", recorded by audio wizard Joona Lukala at Noise for Fiction studio in Turku, Finland. All studio work took place in February and March of 2019. The studio has the benefit of a huge live room which gave the band the opportunity to capture a sound that breathes with the ambience of the space, but maintains the sonic weight for which they are rightly known.
This album is a return to longer form, and even more progressive song structures, but the punchier material is also provided with merciless precision, as well as soothing acoustic moments. The songwriting duties are shared by Kimi and Gareth, also Chritus providing lyrical output.
The album contains a loose lyrical concept relating to mankind’s endless lack of reason and weakness of stability, resulting to violence, war, manipulation of children, and numbing our minds in order to shut out the horror that is the reality we live in. We blow the black lines to feel good. This takes place generation after generation, in an endless cycle of standing and falling. Musically and lyrically the album covers a wide spectrum of textures from the all out punky attack of ’The Temple in the Bedrock’, fragile beauty of ‘Nightmare’, to the oppressive menace of the more intense moments of ‘Sulphur, Charcoal and Saltpetre’. This album is a grower, meant to be listened repeatedly, full of subtle details that reveal themselves with each subsequent listen.
’But children of that place remain with us
They illustrate the burden of our lies
And make us feel the hell of all those memories
Buried in the grave of the fireflies’
Line up:
Chritus - Vocals
Kimi Kärki - Guitars
Richard Jones - Bass
Gareth Millsted - Drums

UDK - "BURNT CRADLES"
Label : Self-released
Country: Chile
Genre: Metal
After 12 years of intense and non-stop work since 1996 to 2008 including demos, albums, gigs all over the country including shows in Argentina and Uruguay, the band split-up.
Seven years went by, when Alejandro and Rodrigo (both guitarists and original members), decided to give the project a new try, re-joining in a rehearsal room to dust-off the songs included in UDK´s previous two albums, “Hand that feeds”/2004 and “From sacred to profane”/2008.
Chemistry was intact and it seemed as if the last rehearsal didn't take place years ago, but the day before. The writing process did not took much time as many riffs surfaced quickly to their hands shaping 10 new songs that led the band into the studio.
Between April and July of 2018, UDK finally recorded "Burnt cradles", releasing it later that year. The main concept of "Burnt Cradles" is about the downward spiral human race is experimenting nowadays, adressed in 10 topics divided into 10 songs. It's not about becoming twisted during life, it's about born with evilness within, embedded in DNA. A possible solution is to metaphorically burn all cradles to avoid spreading this social cancer.
You shall expect heavy songs, heavy music, blasting riffs and hard and direct lyrics, while the main goal is to contribute a little to raise awareness on what manking is doing.
The band is now planning to shoot a video for the track “Vow my words”, while they schedule new touring dates.
Line-up:
Alejandro Espinosa: Vocals/Guitar
Rodrigo Albornoz: Guitar
Claudio Leiva: Bass
Rodrigo Leiva: Drums

KINGBÉAST - "STRAPS OF WRATH"
Label : Black Sunset
Country: Germany
Genre: Groove Thrash Metal
Long live the riffs, the sweat, the beer and the metal!
Groove thrash metal monsters Kingbéast are considered to be one of the best kept secrets of the german scene. With their 2014 self-released debut "Demonic Beast Arises" voted as "Demo of the Month" on Germany's Rock Hard Magazine, its successor will be released before summer and prove that the early praise of their debut is well-deserved.
With their razor-sharp guitar riffs, paired with a lot of groove mixed with a slow-paced doom sound, and the phenomenal drumming by Goath's drummer Tobias Bezold, this trio makes sure no neck will survive the pain!
"Straps Of Wrath" features 13 new tracks and was produced at Deadlight Studios under the direction of Lars Lüttge. In metal we trust!
Line-up:
Heiko Jesenek: Vocals and guitar
Daniel Sira: Bass
Tobias Bezold: Drums

ATARAXIE - RÉSIGNÉS
For Fans of  Disembowelment, Bethelehem, Incantation, Coffins, Autopsy...
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.
