Die Mongolische Breakout Band THE HU veröffentlicht eine Deluxe Version des hochgelobten Debütalbums “THE GEREG”!
“THE GEREG Deluxe” erscheint am 10. Juli 2020 als Doppel-CD, Doppel-Vinyl und Digital. Die Deluxe Version enthält neben drei neu aufgenommenen Feature-Versionen, die in Zusammenarbeit mit Special Guests entstanden sind, außerdem drei zusätzliche Songs als Akustik-Versionen.  
"Yuve Yuve Yu" feat. Danny Case von From Ashes To New war die erste Radio Single der Band überhaupt.  Der Song erreichte Platz 2 der Rock-Radio-Charts in Deutschland sowie Platz 4 der Active Rock Charts in US. Die neue US Radio Single "Wolf Totem" feat. Jacoby Shaddix von Papa Roach ist ebenfalls auf dem besten Weg an die Spitze der Charts. Der dritte exklusive Titel des kommenden Deluxe Albums ist eine neue Version des Tracks "Song of Women" feat. Lzzy Hale von Halestorm. Das Offizielle Video zum Song wurde noch vor Beginn der Corona Krise gedreht. Die Zusammenarbeit mit The HU kommentiert die Sängerin folgendermaßen: “Ich bin sehr dankbar, dass The HU mich, meine Worte und meine Melodie in diesem Song willkommen geheißen haben - Ich kann an weniger als einer Hand abzählen, wie oft ein Projekt meine Wahrnehmung verändert und meinen Glauben an die Menschheit erneuert hat. Dies war eines dieser Projekte - Ich schwebe immer noch! 
Der Band war es wichtig, den Song im Mai zu veröffentlichen, da in diesem Monat mehrere Ereignisse zu Ehren von Frauen international im Vordergrund stehen: Muttertag am 10.5. und Women’s Health Week in US vom 12.5. bis 18.5.
"I'm crazy about a Mongolian band called The HU. They are just the greatest thing I've heard in a long time. My band of the year!" – Elton John (Beats 1 Rocket Hour)
Die Bandmitglieder von The HU werden außerdem einen Gastauftritt im kommenden Film „THE RETALIATORS“ haben, einem nervenaufreibenden Horror-Thriller mit Michael Lombardi (FX's Rescue Me), Marc Menchaca (Ozark, The Outsider) und Joseph Gatt (Dumbo) in den Hauptrollen sowie diverser zusätzlicher Gastauftritte einiger der größten Namen aus Welt der Rockmusik. Der Song "Wolf Totem" feat. Jacoby Shaddix von Papa Roach wird zudem auf dem Soundtrack des Films enthalten sein.
Mit restlos ausverkauften Shows, diversen internationalen Festival Auftritten und ihrem Markenzeichen, dem "Hunnu-Rock", haben THE HU global Wellen geschlagen.

Nach der sehr erfolgreichen Veröffentlichung ihres 11. Albums "Metal Division" im Januar dieses Jahres, das es auf Platz 20 der offiziellen deutschen Charts schaffte und von der Presse durchweg hervorragende Kritiken erhielt, folgt die Band nun mit einer streng limitierten, handgefertigten Version, genauer einer kristallklaren 7 "Vinyl Single inkl. Video Release! Diese Sonderausgabe wird die epische Metal-Hymne "Hail To The King" enthalten, die Alexander dem Großen gewidmet ist (Zitat Metal Hammer Deutschland: "METAL DIVISION hat seine stärksten Momente, wenn bei mittlerem Tempo echter Tiefgang gelingt, z.B. auf ‘Metal Division’, ‘Reincarnation’, oder Inhalt und Musik eine heilige Allianz eingehen wie bei ‘Hail To The King’"), sowie die balladenartige Midtempo-Hymne "Here Comes The Winter", die sich allmählich zu einem eingängigen Groove-Monster mit melodischen Hooks auf Seite B entwickelt!

AGES sind echter Erstliga-Black-Metal! 2011 während eines dieser typischen, herben schwedischen Winter gegründet, legten sie 2015 ihr erstes Album "The Malefic Miasma" vor.
Fünf lange Jahre später gibt´s jetzt mit "Uncrown" den großartigen Nachschlag.
"Uncrown" ist kein Lo-Fi-Wald-und-Wiesen-Gerumpel, sondern ein majestätisches, unter die Haut gehendes Werk voller Energie, Brutalität, Atmosphäre und der beim schwedischen Black Metal immer wieder gern gehörten hypnotisierenden Melodik. Das wunderbar düsterschöne Cover stammt von Chris Cold.

Chicago black metal band DISMALIMERENCE have released their debut full-length album TOME: 1. The album is available through Transcending Records on vinyl (black and gold marble editions), CD and digital formats.

Stream and download the album at https://dismalimerence.bandcamp.com/album/tome-1
"This is an album that should absolutely cement them as part of the next wave of great American black metal." - Nine Circles
"Ferocious yet very melodic, Tome: 1 is an amazing feat."- The Independent Voice
"Expansive and thought-provoking, Dismalimerence take us on a journey here. A journey of cold and unforgiving black metal with deeply moving depths and surprisingly varied highs. It’s a glorious showcase of layered atmospheric darkness." - GBHBL.com
Tracklisting:
1) Crimson Glow
2) Sequestered Hearts
3) My Only Love
4) Orchid's Reverie
5) Pragma
6) Negligence Of The Forgotten
7) Vale Amor
8) Destined For Solitude
Evoking the cold fury of emotive black metal powerhouses like Woods of Desolation and the warmer approach of artists such as Panopticon is Chicago’s own DISMALIMERENCE. A blistering yet beautiful Black Metal outfit whose origins date back to the year 2011 and a dark time in the life of front man and guitar player Elijah Cirricione. The band’s eight track debut full length Tome: 1 puts DISMALIMERENCE in place to be a group to be acknowledged in the US Black Metal scene. 
Elijah began to craft the album that would become the group’s debut full length, Tome: 1, when going through what can only be described as an emotionally crushing period of his life time. Although the band took the backseat for a few years, in 2018 DISMALIMERENCE took shape and finished Tome: 1 through the addition of guitar player Matt Mifflin, bassist Craig Hamburger, and drummer Joey Casillas. The quartet have gained a considerable following in the metal scene of their home city of Chicago, playing a multitude of shows with bands such as SepticFlesh, Ensiferum, and Saor.

Sepulchral Curse are melding influences old and new to create something scintillating without diluting the Finnish death metal essence.
"Sepulchral Curse are death metal without pretense, yet there’s an undeniable subcurrent of finesse running through the record. Their fury is paramount, but executed with nuance and skill, with songs that reach beyond predictable structures and conventions for a satisfying depth that invites multiple listens to wholly appreciate"
SEPULCHRAL CURSE – “ONLY ASHES REMAIN” 
Genre - Death Metal
Release Date - July 31st, 2020
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Demilich, Convulse, Imperialist, Adramelech, Hateful, Lurk, Necrophobic, Demigod, Solothus
Sepulchral Curse are Finland's best kept secret. They've retained the classic Finnish death metal traits of bands such as Demilich, Adramelech, Convulse, Demigod and expanded upon it in a way that's never been done before. The songs are meticulously composed, making them intricate and even unpredictable, but despite the vagaries there is an underlying groove that keeps everything together. Black metal influences seep through to add flavour to the proceedings as the songs keep undulating and showcasing different facets each time. The music ebbs and flows and the pace is always varying, as the vocalist barks and roars in tandem, depending on the mood. The album settles into murkier, doomier territories towards the end, not too dissimilar to Finnish label mates Lurk and Altar of Betelgeuze, but keeping its freshly forged sound intact through it all. This is an engrossing, fascinating album from Sepul

Finnish old-school death metal outfit SHRAPNEL STORM are going to release the follow-up to their 2015 debut "Mother War". The band has just signed a deal with French death metal label Great Dane Records, which is going to release Shrapnel Storm's self-titled sophomore album on August 17, 2020. 
For fans of: Bolt Thrower, Obituary, Six Feet Under
The band comments on the new release:
«The five-year break between the two albums has been longer than we expected, but we've had some severe headwind during the last couple of years; we lost our rehearsal place, the old label terminated its existence, we fucked up the schedules in studio and finally the world turned upside down because someone ate a bat in China! Needless to say, with all this, the album came as hard as a rock!»

CLOCKWORK SKY – “LONGINUS”
Hertfordshire, UK’s premiere deathcore act Clockwork Sky unleash their latest single - Longinus.
Longinus represents the band’s heaviest release to date, guitarist Matthew Wasik reveals. “Development of the song marked the point that as a band we began to move away from a more conventional metalcore sound and add elements of deathcore within our composition. The resulting sound being one much darker and intense while still laced with eerie melody.”
The track also makes a powerful impact lyrically. “Longinus is the name given to the Roman soldier said to have pierced Christ’s body with his spear,” states vocalist and lyricist Albi Hampson. “The track is a statement of defiance against those who would look to control those around them under the veil of religious responsibility for their own personal gain. Whilst also highlighting the hypocrisy of those intolerant to people of differing belief.”
Recorded at The Practice Roomz Studio, Stevenage, the single was mixed and mastered by the band’s own Steven Cela. This level of hands-on-control has granted Clockwork Sky the creative freedom to produce a track truly representative of their creative mindset and musical vision, setting the bar for releases going forward.
Longinus is out now via One Eyed Toad Records.

HORNWOOD FELL- “CURSED THOUGHTS”
Release date: June 26th, 2020
Record label: Kadabra Music
Format: CD | Digital
Distribution: Plastic Head (UK - Europe)
Owners of a distinctive sound that draws influences from avantgarde metal and other different spectrums, Italy's Hornwood Fell embarks on their new album "Cursed Thoughts" sheering away from the more conventional aspects of metal in favor of a memorable and intensified sound, displaying a dissonant and consuming feel, and becoming more surprising, unpredictable and varied than ever.
Set to be released on June 26th 2020 via Kadabra Music, "Cursed Thoughts" is a concept album divided into two parts, with Hornwood Fell exploring "Les Fleurs Du Mal" by Charles Baudelaire (tracks 1-6) and poems from Edgar Allan Poe (tracks 7-13).
The band comments on the chosen concept: «We were inspired by two great poets who speak of human despair. Inner monsters and ghosts, horror and pain. Two authors with different voices, with whom we have imagined and played with, and made different musical lines with the intent of evoking human and earthly energies.»
"Cursed Thoughts" was originally released in digital format by the band as a double album, and is now being brought in a 4-Panel Digipak edition through Kadabra Music on June 26th 2020. Artwork was created by Matteo Valentini. Distribution will be handled in the UK & Europe by Plastic Head.

EXTINCTIONIST - "OBSIDIAN"
Label :
Miasma Records & Vomit Your Shirt
Genre : Brutal Death Metal from germany
... someone who believes in the philosophy that Earth would be far better off without people living on it, thus welcoming the extermination of all human life on the planet...
Founded in the year 2007 as a one-man project by guitarist Alexander Pohl (former PHILOSOPHER, CRYPTIC RITUAL), Extinctionist started with a clear musical approach: "No song slower than 220 bpm, no song longer than 2 minutes."
Although that somewhat "Grindcore-Attitude" changed over time towards slightly longer (but not slower) songs, EXTINCTIONIST lost nothing on their brutality and to-the-core precise killing approach.
Soon to be completed by Grimo on vocals, Denis on second guitar and drummer Christoph in 2008, EXTINCTIONIST became a deadly Live-Commando leaving nothing but devastated lands while playing venues throughout Germany. Their fanbase grew steady since then, their first release ALL FLESH MUST BE EATEN was downloaded over 150.000 times and raised quite a buzz among Brutalheads and the Metal Press.
In 2011 the full length album WORLD EXTINCTION was released and a few shows were played.
Between this and the following year the band's lineup had to face changes. 
Grimo (now CYTOTOXIN), Christoph and Alex left the band in good terms. 
New members were found in Christian, supporting EXTINCTIONIST with his great vocals and Jörg, playing the bass guitar, thanks to whom the sound became much better and heavier. 
In 2013 EXTINCTIONIST joined forces with the Label RISING NEMESIS RECORDS.
In March 2014, Florian entered the band on drums. 
Throughout this whole year the band played a lot of Festivals and shows such as Berlin Death Fest, Las Vegas Death Fest and Nice To Eat You Death Fest. 
In November 2014 the second full length album PORTALS OF EXTRATERRESTRIAL INVASIONS was released via Rising Nemesis Records, providing more brutality. 
Denny joined in as the second guitarist in 2016.
More shows were played such like UK Slam Fest and a Mini-Tour to support the European Tour of Extermination Dismemberment, Korpse, Begging for Incest and Embryectomy. 
Following personal decisions, Florian and Jörg left the band in 2018.
In 2019, Jakob joined the band as the new drummer, completing the lineup once again and ending the silence towards the next album. 
As of 2020, EXTINCTIONIST is signed to Miasma Records and Vomit Your Shirt for the release of their third full length album, OBSIDIAN, in June.

Welcome to this literary underworld, where the rotten incense with nefarious sulfur smells slowly burns so that the infamous entities of darkness Murder Records along with Reboco Caído Fanzine can thus announce and present an initiative that will encourage you to read and allow you to search further, but that also allows you to have at your disposal space totally dedicated to the literary arts, where the abstract purposes of life are reproduced in labyrinths of written words and that allow us to dive into our own deepest literary abysses, in a simple and direct way...
"RANCOROUS MANIFESTO WATERED WITH THE POISONS OF A GRINDER SON OF A BITCH FULL OF PURE RANCID HATE PROPERLY VOMITED, PISSED AND SHIT ON ALL OF YOU... ", is the first edition available in digital format, as well as in physical format and official release by the newly created Editora Merda Na Mão, founded by Fabio da Silva and Diego El Khourie and who decided to join in a very natural way, the official opening of this Cadaveric Noise Bibliothec, also now inaugurated by Danihell Slaughter. What we propose to hear here is all that noise that flows in the rivers of ink spilled by pens and brushes, so that these works, which in the most varied forms of insanity have been exposed through writing or painting and which will provide you with a space for reading and reflection and where the murmurs that echo in this literary underworld, will be published here completely free and easy access, to give a life of their own and a more active voice to all those literary arts who want to share or launch here their mortuary archives in various formats such as, Fanzines or Books, as well as among other ways of expressing opinions and points of view such as, Manifests, Protests, Poems or Open Letters but also with Comics or Drawings and Painting that also have their space reserved within this cursed library of darkness and publisher full of cultural shit...
Now please be silent, so that you can hear with your eyes, all the noise coming from the murmurs in the words that have been written and which here must and can be properly absorbed by the cursed creatures of the underworld of darkness, with didactic, explicit and direct literature...
If for some reason, that concerns nobody but yourself, something has led you in some way to use writing or painting, as a way to express yourself or simply to give your support or points of view, in the most varied underworlds inside, of literature, music, painting or even cinema and you want to publish your arts here, and thus give your very important contribution, so that you can enrich the digital shelves of this filthy library and where it is not intended that the literary noise remains silent...
So that you can present us your literary work with the intention of publishing it in a free form on the shelves of our library, we must inform you that everything will be rigorously evaluated before it can be published or exposed on the shelves of this filthy library where we do not intend to expose or support any type of literature where political aspects are verified whether they are what they are, but where it will also not be tolerated much less to publish any type of homophobic or racist literature, but be aware that the religions here also have no altar, where they can proclaim their absurd doctrines...
All those who want to publish on our shelves your philosophies of life through a book, a fanzine, a manifesto, a protest, a vent, a poem, an open letter, a painting or any other form that you possess so that you can express yourself and have an opinion that really makes you feel in a certain way irritated or revolted, do not hesitate to submit your publications for our evaluation before they can be properly published and exposed on the shelves of this library and where shit turns into culture...
Therefore all those interested in sending us your literary contributions to this library of darkness should send, in PDF, what you want to present or suggest to us and so that it can be properly published and supported by these filthy underworlds full of cultural shit...

SICKENING HORROR - "CHAOS REVAMPED"
Label :
Pathologically Explicit Recordings
Genre : Technical Death Metal from Greece
Line-up:
George Antipatis - vocals, guitar
Vasilis Antipatis - drums
Orestis Ntomis – bass
On June 29th Sickening Horror will release its long awaited 4th studio album “Chaos Revamped” through Pathologically Explicit Recordings.
Recorded at Ignite Music Studio in Athens and mixed/mastered at Soundlodge Recording in Germany by Jörg Uken (God Dethroned, Suicidal Angels, Anvil etc) the production is top-notch making a huge improvement to the sound of the band.
With a new line-up and a new found energy the new album has a more old-school, straight-forward, thrashy approach blending with the primary technical Death Metal style that the band is known for. Influenced by the masters Death, Cannibal Corpse, Slayer, the songs are catchy full of hooks and aggression. 
This will create the perfect vibe for the intense live shows the band always delivers. Since its inception in 2002 the band has performed on stage excessively and has toured all over Europe as well as in Russia.
As for the lyrical themes, they deal with personal issues, introspection, self-transcendence usually presented in a metaphorical or surreal way.

My Kingdom Music is pleased to announce the signing of the Post Apocalyptic Doom Metal force DEMANDE À LA POUSSIÈRE. The new album of the French act will see the light of day under the banner of My Kingdom Music in the next spring.
DEMANDE À LA POUSSIÈRE is formed by well-known French artists coming from a variety of musical backgrounds, from Black Metal to Hardcore, from Avantgarde Metal to Doom (Neil Leveugle on bass from WÜRM, the great producer and Lower Tones Place Studio's owner Edgard Chevallier on guitars, Vincent Baglin from MOSHI-MOSHI on drums and Christophe Denhez on vocals and guitars already member of OMRÅDE and OPHE).
The music is, as you can expect, brilliantly diverse and intense as the debut album already showed. The new album will overwhelm you with its thick, sludgy and groove-laden guitar lines, will upset you with its vicious and intense vocals, it will annihilate your nervous system with an absolutely obsessive rhythmic section at the limit of paranoia.
Their album is expected to be one of the "the next big things" within the Apocalyptic and Post Metal movement, and, without hyperbole, it will be one of the albums you cannot give up.

Live Burial's album has received a terrific response so far with loads of reviews calling it one of the best death metal albums of the year. We even announced new merch and LPs for the release since then whose mockups we've included here.
"Live Burial, a death metal quintet hailing from England, reek of old-school brutality on Unending Futility, their first album in four years. Meeting somewhere in the middle of classic, thrashy death metal and crawling death/doom, Live Burial avoid the trap of sounding like a throwback band while embodying the best of the genre."
LIVE BURIAL  - “UNENDING FUTILITY” 
Genre - Death Metal
Release Date - April 3rd, 2020
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - early Asphyx, Morgoth, Death, Cancer, Gruesome, Skeletal Remains, Bolt Thrower, Unleashed
Band lineup -
Jamie Brown - Vocals
Rob Hindmarsh - Guitars
Richard Codling - Guitars
Lee Anderson - Bass
Matthew Henderson - Drums
Death metal band from the UK, Live Burial, emerge with an astounding album that melds the best elements of classic death metal from all over. There's this undeniable rugged and scathing quality that is contrasted with the dark, brooding and often twisted structures. Painful vocals soar over rumbling, heaving parts that hearken back to the days of early Death, Morgoth, Asphyx and even Fleshcrawl. There are emotive strains shimmering in a desolate, forsaken landscape. Live Burial make it all work and it comes through effortlessly. They are forging a powerful sound that will echo through the ancient corridors of this style. 'Unending Futility' is an accomplished album that will hold appeal to any fan of well-written death metal and must not be missed.

  NEWS 28.6.2020

ARCANA XXII war keine gewöhnliche Metal-Band. Als krasse Außenseiter auf einem Kontinent, der für Heavy Metal zur Jahrtausendwende nicht das Geringste übrig hatte, haben sich die Musiker mit eigenwilliger und origineller Musik konsequent gegen den vorherrschenden Zeitgeist gestemmt. Die Titel auf dieser Compilation sind die ersten Metal-Songs, die jemals in dem südafrikanischen Land Namibia veröffentlicht wurden. Mehr noch, sie waren eins der ersten metallischen Lebenszeichen auf dem gesamten Kontinent.
Für die Band gab es in dieser Zeit keine musikalischen Vorbilder auf lokaler Ebene, vernünftiges Musikequipment war Mangelware, ganz zu schweigen von einer unterstützenden Musikindustrie. Die Titel auf dieser Veröffentlichung wurden zwischen 1997 und 2002 aufgenommen – überwiegend live und analog. Sie manifestieren die ungefilterte, rohe Kreativität von Musikern, die kompromisslos und eigenwillig gegen den Strom geschwommen sind. Wachsender Zuspruch bei namibischen und südafrikanischen Musikfans sowie europäischer Medien, zahlreiche Konzerte und stetige Veröffentlichungen bescherten der Band bis zur Auflösung im Jahr 2002 dann auch zahlreiche Achtungserfolge.
Heute sind Metalbands in Afrika keine Ausnahmeerscheinung mehr - das Genre hat sich vielerorts etabliert. Aber es musste auch in Afrika irgendwann und irgendwo beginnen und Arcana XXII aus der namibischen Hauptstadt Windhoek waren ganz am Anfang mit dabei.
"A RETURN TO THE DARKLAND" wurde von den Bandmitgliedern, die heute auf drei Kontinenten weltweit verstreut leben, zusammengestellt. Diese Songs stellen das Erbe einer afrikanischen Band der ersten Stunde dar.
Als gebürtige Namibier mit europäischen Wurzeln (Deutschland, Niederlande, England, Skandinavien) gehören die Bandmitglieder zu einer Bevölkerungsminderheit in einem der am dünnsten besiedelten Länder der Welt. Der Wüstenstaat an der Südwest-Küste Afrikas, der erst 1990 seine Unabhängigkeit von Südafrika erlangte, kann auf eine wechselvolle Geschichte zurückblicken und war von 1884 bis 1915 deutsche Kolonie bevor er zu einem Vasallenstaat der Kaprepublik wurde.
ARCANA XXII – “A Return to the Darkland / Untold” Digi-CD+DVD wird am 25.02.2021 veröffentlicht. Die Digital Single “Sweet Immortal” über alle Plattformen erscheint am 23.10.2020.

Seid gegrüßt,Dänemark ist im Verhältnis zu seiner Einwohnerzahl ein wahres Metal-Paradies, das immer wieder vielversprechende Newcomer ausspuckt.
Nehmt zum Beispiel DEFECTO, die wir Euch heute wärmstens ans Herz legen möchten. Die Band veröffentlichte ihr Debüt und war, schwupps, Support für Acts wie METALLICA (deren Kult-Produzent Flemming Rasmussen die Band auch entdeckte) und RAMMSTEIN und landete zudem auf einigen der größten europäischen Festivals. Millionen von Streams sind der Beweis, dass beim Publikum kein schlechter Eindruck hinterlassen wurde. Mittlerweile haben die Herren ihr drittes Album "DUALITY" komplettiert. DEFECTO stehen nach wie vor für eine fulminante Mischung aus Hell und Dunkel, aus Eingängigkeit, Progressivität und Aggressivität, die umgehend beim Hörer hängenbleibt, aber mit jedem Durchlauf neue Details offenbart. Die DEFECTO-Erfolgskurve wird weiterhin nach oben zeigen!
Tracklist:
1. Rings of Saturn

Label: Folter Records
Vertrieb: Alive
VÖ: 29.03.2020
Die deutschen Black-Metal-Traditionalisten ILLUM ADORA  blasen gut ein Jahr nach ihrem Debütalbum  "...of Serpentine Forces" wieder zum Angriff. Dieses Mal hat sich die Band um Kopf Hurricane Hellfukker (Vocals, ZARATHUSTRA) zu einer EP entschlossen.
„Infernum Et Necromantium“ folgt den Tugenden des Debütalbums: Roh, unverfälscht und gleichzeitig atmosphärisch. Eine Huldigung an längst vergessene Tage und trotzdem höchst eigen.

Werte Anspruchsmetaller, MANTICORA stehen seit inzwischen neun Alben für imposanten progressiven Power-Thrash-Metal.
Die dänische Band um Ausnahmesänger Lars F. Larsen legt mit "TO LIVE TO KILL TO LIVE" den zweiten Teil der Vertonung seines 334-Seiten-Horror-Romans "To Kill To Live To Kill" vor.
"To Live To Kill To Live" ist der Nachfolger von "To Kill To Live To Kill" (also bitte nicht durcheinanderbringen) und enthält 63 Minuten absolute Metal-Präzision.
Seit fast einem Vierteljahrhundert präsentieren MANTICORA eine atemberaubende Gratwanderung aus Anspruch und Aggression, aus Progressivität und Hitgespür.
2020 zeigen sie sich kreativer denn je und präsentieren ein Gesamtkunstwerk-Konzept, das auch auf rein musikalischer Ebene beeindruckend funktioniert.
Das Album mit einer viertelstündigen Tour de force wie ´Katana The Moths And The Dragonflies/Katana - Mud´ zu starten, zeigt Mut, aber auch den Glauben, etwas ganz Besonderes erschaffen zu haben.
Und das trifft auf das gesamte, von Jacob Hansen großartig produzierte Werk zu.
Taucht ein in die Welt von MANTICORA!

Underground cult Unholy Death Metalers MERCYLESS have just unleashed "All Souls Are Mine", the second single from new album "THE MOTHER OF ALL PLAGUESS" due out Aug.21 on CD & Vinyl via XENOKORP.
Featuring guest solos by Michel DUMAS and Anthony DERYCKE, guitarists of French underground Death Metal legends AGRESSOR and CATACOMB.
For Fans of : DEATH, PESTILENCE, IMMOLATION...
Overview
On the 33th year, the 7th gate opens, bastard son dies at last and MERCYLESS spits its darkest album ever on the face of his p(ri)ests that contaminate mankind since way too long.
Seventh album in 33 years, the aptly-titled “The Mother of All Plagues” amidst those troubled pandemia times even though it’s been written and given its title back in 2018 already, is the proof, if any was needed, that already deep in its fourth decade, MERCYLESS still rages on, stronger than ever before, against the crucified one and the holy ghost, releasing their darkest and most hate-filled album ever ; most probably their best since cult 1992 debut “Abject Offerings“!
Comparing religious belief to the infection of minds and the contagion spread by clergies to a plague, “The Mother of All Plagues” is standing fierce, proud to have been, equals to the horned one, banished from Heaven, calling on the infected masses to break their mental chains and bring back with them the severed head of their oppressor.
Produced at VAMACARA studio (OTARGOS, LOUDBLAST, SAVAGE ANNIHILATION…), “The Mother of All Plagues” is darker and rawer than any of the band’s previous releases, adding to the songs’ oppressive and hateful feel, an even darker dimension, topping it all with outstanding artwork courtesy of Nestor AVALOS (BLOODBATH, DARK FUNERAL, BLUT AUS NORD…).
Forever … rival of the Nazarene!

Jupiterian left an indelible mark with their previously full length 'Terraforming' which was regarded as one of the best albums of that year. Cvlt Nation gave them the #1 ranking where doom metal albums went. The monstrous sludge/doom entity is back with a new album that is even more crushing and unforgettable. Listen to their new track Mere Humans on YouTube and Band camp and keep an eye out for their promo coming your way via Haulix. 'Protosapien' is available on all formats and their respective box set editions, with a full range of merch as well. Their official video will be unveiled shortly.
JUPITERIAN  - “ PROTOSAPIEN “
Genre
- Atmospheric Sludge/Doom/Death Metal
Release Date - September 11th, 2020
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Eremit, Loss, Primitive Man, Gaerea, Bell Witch, Krypts, Deathspell Omega, My Dying Bride
Jupiterian are back after releasing their groundbreaking album 'Terraforming' which was akin to the sound of tectonic plates shifting. In the aftermath of that event, a new revelation has been unearthed - their magnum opus 'Protosapien'. It slices through the ominous atmospheric murk of the band's previous effort and in an almost primitive yet strangely evolved manner, goes for the jugular. Jupiterian rise as a mythical creature, imbibing everything that transpired and distilling it all to create something highly potent, dense and sonically immeasurable. This is the sound of titans. Jupiterian have created a form of harrowing, otherworldly sludge/doom metal that lumbers on erratically, carving their own path, trampling on anything that dares stand in their way. There is little left to do other than cower in fear. Bow down before your new overlords.

ENTARTUNG - "MALEFICAE ARTES"
Label :
Dunkelheit Produktionen
Genre : Black Metal from Germany
After three long years, Entartung finally returns from the ominous shadows to which they silently retreated after the release of their prior opus, “Baptised into the Faith of Lust”. It is fitting that, in a new age of plague and pestilence, their newest album “Maleficae Artes” (Lat. “Dark Arts”) is unleashed upon the world.
The elaborate compositions on “Maleficae Artes” are deeply and firmly rooted in the early 90's atmosphere and remain true to the original spirit of black metal. Brooding, sinister, violent and menacing themes presented by the trademark icy riffing of Lykormas and the militaristic and deadly precise battery assault of Haistulf manifest themselves in a dynamic interaction with acoustic and martial touches of melancholy and gloom.
The lyrical subject matters explored on “Maleficae Artes” are devoted to death, the Faustian spirit, ancient rituals and traditions and the darker chapters of human history; enhancing the experience in a synergetic fashion.
The cover artwork, which conceptually is in unison with the album title, is a modified painting by Salvator Rosa. It illustrates a Biblical episode where king Saul summons a spirit with the help of a witch - directly violating Mosaic Law that demanded the death penalty for necromancy.
Engineered by Entartung. Mixed by Vulfolaic. Mastered by Patrick W. Engel at TEMPLE OF DISHARMONY in December 2019. Cover painting by Salvator Rosa. Artwork and Layout by Vulfolaic. Executive Production by Dunkelheit Produktionen, 2020.

PHOBETOR – “WHEN LIFE FALLS SILENT”
Label:
Black Jasper Records
Release Date: July 17th 2020
Genre: Extreme Metal
For fans of: Crisis | Machine Head | Behemoth | Opera IX
Line-up:
Debora Conserva - Vocals
Mitch Revy - Guitar
Marc Dyos - Drums
Richard Hunter - Bass (session)
From the warmth, tranquillity and peace of the womb we are cast out into this world in a paroxysm of screams, bewilderment and blood. We are thrown from comforting darkness into blinding light, from simple contentment into an ocean of noise and confusion, turmoil and pain. Throughout the years of our existence we fight against the tides of life, struggling to keep our head above the relentless waves, always aware of the unfathomable depths below us, sucking at our thrashing limbs. Occasionally we will crawl, coughing and spluttering, onto tiny islands of contentment, vomiting our terror onto the warm sands and crying tears of gratitude and joy for the respite. But the wild storms of existence are never far away and soon we are lifted by the winds and flung back into the raging waters to struggle again. Until we finally find our sanctuary once more...in the stillness, the darkness, the peace of the tomb.
Since they began, Phobetor’s drive and vision was to mirror the anguish and chaos of life, to capture its essence and reflect it back into the hearts of the masses. While their first EP, Burning Memories, may have worked with familiar ingredients, blending groove and melody into strong song structures, there was always the desire for more; more extremity, more intensity, more individuality and a more ambitious and challenging approach. Now those goals have been achieved and Phobetor have found their sound and their identity. They stand alone while the adherents to genre rage around them. All the desperate, senseless struggles of human existence ensnared in a soul-shaking primal scream. All forms of extreme metal boiling in a cauldron of heartache and fury. This is When Life Falls Silent and it is the truth behind the veil, the seething turbulence of reality without the comfort of mutually agreed upon deceits. Lurching, staggering riffs that explode into violence, a voice lost in nightmares, unfettered emotion, nerve-shredding tension and unstoppable force...Phobetor are a new voice, a scream of defiance in the face of hopelessness and the sound of the reality you cannot bear to face.
Mixed and mastered by Krysthla guitarist Neil Hudson and presented in the perfectly unsettling, darkly disturbing artwork of Hans Trasid (Orkrist, Bleeding Utopia, Dawn Of Destiny etc) When Life Falls Silent is a complete entity, the realisation of Phobetor’s ferocious dreams. Dare to look beyond the garish comforts that blind you and howl into the void with Phobetor...

AL-NAMROOD - "WALA'AT"
Label :
Shaytan Productions
Genre : Black Metal from Saudi Arabia
Line-up:
Mephisto
Ostron
Humbaba
Al-Namrood is a Saudi Arabian black metal band whose name refers to “Nimrod”, a Babylonian king. The name was chosen as a form of defiance against religion. The members are anonymous since their identification could lead to punishment of death from Saudi Arabian authorities. Now Al-Namrood are celebrating 12 years of resistance with their eighth full-length "Wala'at". 
This is what The Guardian wrote about them:
«Isolation, dislocation from the prevailing social and political orthodoxies, introspection, a genuine connection with ancient spiritual/religious beliefs and a belief in the sublime potential of art to represent nature are often hallmarks of great black metal. And this is why Al Namrood from Saudi Arabia are undoubtedly much more in tune with the genuine spirit of Black Metal than some dudes called Portcullis who wear corpse-paint and live on a farm in the American Midwest. The press can look patronisingly at BM bands in places like the Middle East as being exotic or even funny, when, in some respects, they should be seen as the true heirs to the Scandinavians of two decades ago. The three piece - who have to keep their exact location and identities strictly secret - are so far removed from normal Saudi society that there simply is no Western equivalent to what they are doing. They have never played live in front of an audience and have to record clandestinely. They even have to smuggle their instruments out to the US for repair via a clandestine drop off spot in Bahrain when they break. If they are ever discovered they risk execution by stoning or beheading for apostasy: something that is all too imaginable given their sceptical stance on modern religion. Despite all this though, Al Namrood - who are named after the Qur’an equivalent to the Old Testament rebel king and unbeliever, Nimrod, builder of the Tower Of Babel - inject a palpable amount of verve and swagger into what they do. The excitement the music creates is in part caused by a conflict in the instrumentation; not just because of the tonal clash between electric guitars and Eastern instruments such as oud, ney, qanun and darbuka but because the latter have traditional Middle Eastern tunings and the former are tuned to a standard (Western) scale. The microtonal intervals the maqam calls for are achieved by note bending, meaning the threat of dissonance is always present despite never quite arriving. Also Al Namrood are clearly good musicians but everything they record is self-produced under stressful conditions in unsuitable home surroundings on substandard equipment. This means their albums have the musicianship of early Melechesh but are recorded with the lo-fi, everything in the red, distortion of an album like Darkthrone’s Transilvanian Hunger. All of these things combine to create a truly unique sound that really couldn’t come from any other region in the world.»

3XPERIMENTAL - "SYMPHONY OF ELEMENT"
Label : Self-released
Genre : Atmospheric black metal from France/Germany
Line-up:
Jean-Baptiste Vincent and guests
3xperimental is an atmospheric black metal project by JB Vincent and guests. The name reflects the musical style: although our music is primarily atmospheric black metal, we incorporate elements and sounds from many other genres, as needed to tell the story we envision.
Each album is built around a different concept. Our first demo, published in 2019, dealt with virtual realities and escapism. Our upcoming release: "Symphony of Elements", is an ode to the forces of Nature, against human arrogance. Each song/element represents the ending of a world, and perhaps the beginning of something new.
"Symphony of Elements" combines metal music from different styles: from black to doom to progressive, mixed with symphonic and atmospheric elements.

Concept/Music/Lyrics: JB Vincent
All instruments and vocals performed by JB Vincent
with additional vocal guests on tracks #1, #3, and #6
