Song bei Spotify anhören: https://open.spotify.com/track/0XSQ4kTthj1qqdnDQ1P1pa?si=BW62U-RPQeKBf7Uj88aL2g
Die Band kommentiert gewohnt humorvoll: "It's a song about being confused. We wrote it when we were confused”.
Derweil kann man sich das Album beim kultigen Label Fuzzorama Records vorbestellen:

"ELECTRICAL STORM" ist genau die Granate, die wir alle von der Band erhofft haben. Die Mixtur aus lauten, harten Gitarren, mitreißendem Gesang und düsteren elektronischen Elementen funktioniert hervorragend. Das Album erobert die Herzen des Publikums wie ein leckerer Erdbeer-Smoothie, der mit einem Katapult abgefeuert wird.
Die Stoner/Alternative-Rocker aus dem schicken Graz gibt´s seit 2012. Ihr zweites Album "Electrical Storm" ist eine beeindruckende musikalische Reise, in die man gerade in der heutigen Zeit wunderbar eintauchen kann. Die Band setzt auf Abwechslungsreichtum und coole Melodien, behält aber immer den nötigen Punch und bricht gern aus der engen Genre-Schublade aus. Live haben WITCHRIDER u.a. mit Kadavar, Karma To Burn, Truckfighters und Blues Pills beeindruckt.

Seid gegrüßt, "Phase Reverse: The Return" könnte der Titel ihres lang erwarteten neuen Albums sein, aber PHASE REVERSE entschieden sich für "PHASE IV GENOCIDE", weil es unsere Welt im Hier und Jetzt am besten beschreibt.
Es war vier ganze Jahre ruhig um PHASE REVERSE, dafür haben sie jetzt umso mehr zu sagen.
"Phase IV Genocide" ist wenig überraschend ein zutiefst emotionales Album geworden.
Es ist eine intensive Reise durch die schwierigen Zeiten, in denen wir alle leben, verkleidet in den einzigartigen Southern-Metal-Rock der Band.
Massiv, druckvoll, melodisch, schwermütig, ehrlich und mit tonnenschwerem Herzblut!
Lasst Euch begeistern!

ENIGMA EXPERIENCE veröffentlichen neuen Song mit besonderer Message: ´The Zone´
Enigma Experience veröffentlichen ihr Debütalbum "QUESTION MARK" am 13. November über Fuzzorama Records.
Jetzt gibt´s mit ´The Zone´ einen weiteren Vorgeschmack, den Ihr auf allen Streamingplattformen hören könnt.
Am besten geht Ihr zur Spotify-Playlist von Bandkopf Niklas´ nicht ganz unbekannter anderer Band Truckfighters:
https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3dcAh9vGFt03nJVlHl7kRb?si=T7jOZk8iSSiJ08OQ8DL7Gw
Dort gibt´s das Ding ebenfalls, und der Algorithmus von Spotify freut sich  :-)
"´The Zone´ handelt von den Problemen, die man hat, wenn man in der heutigen Welt "anders" ist. Es geht darum, sich in einer eigenen Zone zu bewegen und dem Rest der Welt nicht viel Aufmerksamkeit zu schenken, aber zugleich zu wissen, dass man nicht allein ist, wenn man tatsächlich die Hand in Richtung anderer Menschen ausstreckt. Die Botschaft ist somit positiv, es geht um Möglichkeiten und nicht um das Untergehen in Problemen. Mr. Dango hat den Song speziell für seinen autistischen Sohn geschrieben, aber die Message von ´The Zone´ passt genauso gut zu diversen psychologischen und mentalen Krankheiten, Angstzuständen, Depressionen etc. Wenn Du Dich im Spiegel betrachtest, hattest Du vielleicht schon mal das Gefühl, dass Du Dich von der Außenwelt komplett abschotten möchtest und in Deiner eigenen Zone leben möchtest, auch wenn es nur für eine kurze Weile ist...
ENIGMA EXPERIENCE
Die Band lässt Schweden und Norwegen zusammenkommen, da Truckfighters-Gitarrist Niklas 'Mr.Dango' Källgren sich mit dem ehemaligen Truckfighters/Witchcraft-Schlagzeuger Oskar 'Pezo' Johansson und Maurice Adams (Breed/Motorfinger) als Sänger zusammengetan hat.
Lenker hinter dem Projekt ist Källgren selbst, der das Album produziert, komponiert, gemixt und gemastert hat. Ebenso spielt er Bass und zeigt sich für die Backing-Vocals verantwortlich.
Das Album erscheint auf LP, CD und wird auch auf einer limitierten Vinyl-Edition in einem sehr exklusiven Boxset mit Doppel-Vinyls mit Siebdruck, Doppel-Gatefold, Doppelplakaten und natürlich einer schönen Box erhältlich sein.
"Question Mark" ist eine sehr abwechslungsreiche Rock-Platte, die mit der zehnminütigen Odyssee ´Realityline´ beginnt, deren Vokal-Harmonien an Grunge-Helden der frühen 90er Jahre wie Soundgarden und Alice In Chains erinnern, während sich die Gitarrenlinien über einen pulsierenden Rhythmushintergrund heben. In ´In My Mind My Secret Place ´ verlangsamen sie die Dinge mit einer ätherischen, akustischen Atmosphäre, die sich zu einem hypnotisch-schweren und verheerenden Ende entwickelt, während der Closer ´The Zone´ eine wütend eingängige Hymne ist, in der Kallgrens typischer "Fuzz-Fueled Sound" hervorsticht.
Tracklist:
1. Realityline
2. Lonewolf
3. Mighty Mind
4. Corruption
5. Equilibrium

Seid gegrüßt, VOLSTER stehen für eine fulminante Mixtur aus Heavy Rock, AOR und Prog.
Hier gibt´s das brandneue Video zum Song ´Turn The Tide´: https://youtu.be/6LwF_rPN-6U
Es wurde produziert, gefilmt und geschnitten von JB Studio & Media: https://www.jbstudios.se/
In dem Song geht es um Entscheidungen, die man im Leben trifft, teils bewusst, teils unbewusst. Der Text stellt die Frage, wie man sich entscheiden würde, wenn man die Zeit noch mal zurückdrehen könnte.
´Turn The Tide´ stammt von dem am 13.11. erscheinenden Album "Arise" und ist ab sofort auf allen digitalen Plattformen erhältlich.
Wie man es von Schweden generell schon fast gewöhnt ist, ist auch bei VOLSTER das Qualitätslevel extrem hoch.
Die Band ist handwerklich äußerst beschlagen, hat ein Händchen für feinste Melodien und steckt durch seinen Enthusiasmus für klassisches Songwriting mit großen Refrains umgehend an.
Das Ergebnis ist ein Konglomerat aus britischem und amerikanischem Melodic Rock und natürlich skandinavischem Hitgespür und Finesse.
Hinzu kommen Texte über den gegenwärtigen Zustand der Welt, sodass "Arise" ein durchgehend stimmiges Package geworden ist. Bis zum Release werden drei Videoclips als Appetithappen folgen.
Lasst Euch begeistern!

Mr.Dango, den meisten als der verrückte Gitarrist der Truckfighterrs bekannt und treuer Anhänger des Rock'n'Roll-Gottes, zeigt im folgenden Play-through Video zu 'Lonewolf' wie man am besten an die aktuelle Single seines Projekts ENIGMA EXPERIENCE herangeht. Keep the Fuzz burning!

Enigma Experience haben die Veröffentlichung ihres Debütalbums 'Question Mark' angekündigt, das am 13.November über Fuzzorama Records erscheint.
Die Band hat auch die brandneue Single ´Lonewolf´ vorgestellt, die mit einer funkigen und psychedelisch aufgeladenen Primus-artigen Melodie beginnt, bevor sie in einen treibenden Groove inmitten knirschender Riffs mit aufsteigenden Vokal-Melodien fällt.
Das offizielle Video zum Song gibt es hier zu bestaunen: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05DCGTSn3Xc
Zum Song kommentiert Gitarrist Niklas 'Mr.Dango' Källgren:
 ”The lyrics are about suffering from and handling the pressure of the world, and the expectations from society that push you into a corner when feel different. It’s about daring you to be yourself, to let your creativity loose and to live like you want to live - it’s your life."

Nach dem von Doom und Blues inspirierten Release der Single Sheeba führen RAVEN BLACK NIGHT ihre Reise durch verschiedene einflussreiche Genres fort und lassen diesmal ihren Heavy-Metal-Anleihen freien Lauf. “Her Sword Of Tears” vom lang ersehnten kommenden Album “RUN WITH THE RAVEN” ist da!
Die neueste Videosingle des Albums startet mit einer ohrwurmartigen Gitarrenmelodie in Manier der vorangegangenen Single – doch dieses Mal ist der Song nicht nur erheblich schneller, auch die Gitarren klingen heavier denn je. Das 70s-inspirierte Instrumental wird von stimmungsvollen Lyrics begleitet, die sich in einem mystischen Setting mit Gefühlen wie Leidenschaft und Sehnsucht beschäftigen. Raven-Black-Night-Songwriter Jim Petkoff kommentiert: “‘Her Sword Of Tears’ steht für eine innere Glaubensreise und Suche nach der Essenz und Schönheit des Lebens als Rittergeschichte.”
Einmal mehr schaffen es Raven Black Night, altbewährte musikalische Muster mit ihrer einzigartigen, experimentellen Herangehensweise und unvergleichlichen akustischen Eigenheiten zu kombinieren, ohne vom Weg ihrer Reise durch extra-mondäne Kulissen und die verschiedenen Ebenen der Rockmusik abzukommen. Die Spannung hinsichtlich des Releases von “Run With The Raven” am 30. Oktober steigt!
Der Vorverkauf für das Album startet heute: http://orcd.co/runwiththeraven

Thrasher! NUCLEAR sind zurück und servieren Euch jetzt eine der brillantesten Thrash-Metal-Attacken des Jahres!
Wer sich noch an "Formula For Anarchy" erinnert, weiß, was hier im Anmarsch ist.
Die Chilenen stehen für eine mit Hardcore und Punk gewürzte Old-School-Variante, die mit einer unglaublichen Frische in Ohren und Glieder knallt.
"MURDER OF CROWS" zeigt die Band vielseitiger, aber immer noch punktgenau und brutal.
Jetzt gibt´s das neue Video ´Abusados´: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ur8oz0AqD5M&feature=youtu.be
Der Song ist komplett auf Spanisch und beschreibt die Gründe hinter den sozialen Unruhen im heimischen Chile und wie überzogen und unmenschlich die Reaktion der Regierung war. Das Video macht das äußerst anschaulich und zeigt bislang ungesehene Aufnahmen von Ausschreitungen, Polizeibrutalität und Menschenrechtsverletzungen."
Sänger Matias kommentiert: "Wir wollten Quellen aus erster Hand verwenden, um zu zeigen, wie es Millionen Menschen in Chile geht. Dies ist genau der Moment, an dem das Volk sagt, dass es genug von dem Missbrauch, Indolenz und Repression hat!"

Freddy von CHTHONIC interviewt Barney Greenway von NAPALM DEATH zu Metal, Dissens und Menschenrechten:
Chthonics Headbang-Podcast METALHEAD POLITICS, der gemeinsam mit Ghost Island Media produziert wurde, veröffentlichte am 10. Oktober die fünfte Folge zum Thema "Nation Building". Die Gastgeber des Podcasts sind der Chthonic-Sänger Freddy Lim und die Mitbegründerin von Ghost Island Media, Emily Y. Wu.
In der aktuellen Folge interviewen Freddy und Emily Barney Greenway, Sänger und Grindcore-Pionier der englischen Death Metal-Band Napalm Death. Sie diskutieren das Verhältnis zwischen Musik und Politik, Staaten und Individuen. Wie Freddy ist Barney seit langem ein Verfechter der Menschenrechte. 2012 trat Napalm Death in Taiwan auf, wo Barney mehrere lokale Anti-Atom-Aktivisten traf. Darüberhinaus tauchen Freddy und Emily in die heikle Frage der nationalen Vertretung im modernen Taiwan ein. Dies mag das internationale Publikum von Metalhead überraschen, aber die "taiwanesische" Flagge und Taiwans "Nationalfeiertag" stammten überhaupt nicht aus Taiwan. Für viele Taiwaner, die die Zeit des Kriegsrechts von 1949 bis 1987 durchlebten, sind dies die Symbole einer Diktatur, die Taiwan niemals wirklich repräsentieren kann.
Wie kann sich Taiwan (neu) erschaffen? Freddy sagt, dass um mehr geht als um "Identität". Was zählt, ist die Entwicklung des Geistes einer Nation - das Wachstum fortschrittlicher Werte. Freddy und Emily diskutieren Taiwans jüngste Erfolge, insbesondere die Gleichstellung der Ehe, und die verbleibenden Herausforderungen wie die Vertretung der Ureinwohner. Trotz des immensen Druck seitens China und aller daraus resultierenden diplomatischen Hindernisse glauben sie, dass Taiwan durch den Aufbau einer fairen, schönen und fortschrittlichen Gesellschaft immer noch erhebliche internationale Aufmerksamkeit und Unterstützung erhalten kann. Der Fall Taiwan zeigt, dass universelle Werte nicht durch nationale oder kulturelle Grenzen begrenzt sind. Taiwan hat sich allmählich zu einem Leuchtturm der Demokratie und der Menschenrechte in Asien entwickelt.
Metalhead Politics erzählt seit der ersten Folge im Juni Geschichten und Erfahrungen aus Taiwan und erfreut sich großer Beliebtheit auf Apple Podcasts. Der Podcast zielt darauf ab, verschiedene Ansichten zu Taiwan darzustellen und langfristig auch verschiedene internationale Themen zu behandeln. Das Ziel ist sich gegen die Propaganda des alten Parteistaats zu wehren und Taiwans komplexe Vergangenheit, hoffnungsvolle Zukunft und die sich ständig verändernde Gegenwart authentisch zu beschreiben - anstatt von anderen beschreiben zu lassen.
Episode 5 wurde am 10. Oktober auf Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts und anderen Podcast-Plattformen veröffentlicht. Neben dem Podcast finden Sie auf der Facebook-Seite und im YouTube-Kanal von Chthonic auch das Highlight-Video der neuesten Folge.

Metalheads! RAUBTIER dürften vielen von Euch geläufig sein. Die Industrial-Metaller haben nicht nur einen der coolsten Bandnamen, ganz besonders für eine schwedische(!) Band, sondern auch einen schwerst talentierten und umtriebigen Frontmann.
Eben jener HULKOFF präsentiert jetzt sein neues Soloprachtwerk "PANSARFOLK". Geboten wird harter, erdiger, ehrlicher Metal mit authentischer, unalberner Folk-Schlagseite und der immer gern gehörten Dosis skandinavischer Melancholie.
Da passt es, dass HULKOFF "Pansarfolk" gleich in zwei Versionen veröffentlichen wird: auf Englisch und auf Schwedisch.
Bei "Pansarfolk - Vinland Edition" können wir besser mitsingen, bei "Pansarfolk - Svitjod Edition" fühlt man sich hingegen umgehend ein paar Breitengrade gen Norden teleportiert.
Die ersten drei Singles - ´Ingvar´, ´Varangian´ und ´Martial´ - waren in beiden Sprachen erfolgreich.
Die Fans lieben dieses Konzept offensichtlich.
Pär Hulkoffs abwechslungsreiches Songwriting und seine einmalige Stimme sind auf "Pansarfolk" mehr denn je Erfolgsgaranten.
Zudem gibt´s eine ganze Armee an Mitstreitern, darunter der Folklore-Akademiker Thomas von Wachenfeld an der Violine, Anders Johansson (ex-Hammerfall, ex-Yngwie Malmsten, ex-Manowar) an den Drums, sein Sohn Karl (Tungsten) am Bass, Matthias Gyllengahm (Utmarken) an der "Nyckelharpa", Björn Månsson an der Flöte und Erik Grawsiö (Månegarm) als Gastsänger auf ´Hildisvin´.
Inhalte und Instrumentierung laden zu einer Zeitreise ein, zurück in die wilde Ära der alten Nordmänner, ihrer Geschichten und Mythen.
Lasst Euch begeistern!

BLACK COMMUNION - "MIASMIC MONSTROSITY"
Label : Dunkelheit Produktionen
Formats : CD | Digital | LP
Genre : Death/Black Metal from Colombia
Black Communion is a young band coming from Barranquilla, Colombia, but in their relatively short career, they have been fructiferous and devoted to the Temple of virulent and warlike black death metal. So far they have released a couple of demos, an EP, a split album, a complete full length and even a live recording.
While many others opt for experimentation and distortion of the essence of the Bestial side of Black metal, Black Communion, true to the parameters and the harsh and morbid essence of the Southamerican underground scene, have opted for going back to the pillars and roots of the genre undergoing a complete tour de force through the pestilent caverns of blasphemous Bestial Black metal. That is, revisiting and taking influences by primordial acts such as Black Witchery, Blasphemy, Beherit, Revenge, VON and even the morbidity of older Profanatica. Having this explosive cocktail shaken, drank and regurgitated in the southamerican way, they have managed to record a second full length album called “Miasmic Monstrosity” which continues with the path already established by their very early material.
Lyrically, they have left behind any pretentious approach but instead they have immersed themselves into the primitive ways of adoration and horror which lies behind the Dark Arts.
“Miasmic Monstrosity” has been recorded at Fenix Studios in Soledad, Atlantico –in their native Colombia, that is, and Mastered by M. Dahmen at Liquid Aether Audio (Germany) for the best possible sonic attack. The artwork was handled by the Peruvian young promise K. Guerrero for the hideous Temple of Kalighat, and released by your truly, Dunkelheit Produktionen. 
"Miasmic Monstrosity" was recorded at Fenix Studios in Soledad, Atlantico (Colombia) between March and April, 2019. Mixed by Hermes Martinez at Fenix Studios (Colombia). All music by Necropervertor except tracks 7 and 9. Music for tracks 7 and 9 by Tortor A. All Lyrics by Necropervertor. Mastered by M. Dahmen at Liquid Aether Audio (Germany) in July 2019. Artwork by K. Guerrero (Temple Of Kalighat). Executive Production by Dunkelheit Produktionen, 2020.

Bavarian old-school death metallers DISGUSTING PERVERSION are set to release their debut full-length "ETERNITY OF DEATH" on October 30th via Black Sunset!

California's THANATOPSIS have unleashed the title track off their upcoming debut album "INITIATION" due out October 23, 2020 via Extreme Metal Music to follow their four independently released demos between 1993-1997.
For fans of :  Slayer, Kreator, Death
The band comments about the song: 
"The title track of the album, a banger of a song made for headbanging, with technical elements as well. From hidden cults to overt street violence, this song details the initiation into a gang connected to the cult, by means of shooting human targets. Once again, an infiltration ensues."
After a hiatus, 3/4 of the band has reunited along with the new addition of drummer Jason Borton (Jungle Rot, Arkaik) to offer their debut full-length, which features past recordings that are given a second life and a chance to be heard by a broader audience along with new unheard material. The album was recorded at Trident Studios with renowned producer Juan Urteaga (Exodus, Testament, Machine Head).
The overall album experience shares eight old school thrash/death metal influenced tracks that are an emotionally twisted ride of violently catchy brutality. With themes that include corruption, occultism, murder, revolt, and loss of faith, Thanatopsis delivers an album that keeps the listener engaged from start to finish, with a sound unlike any other.
The band comments:
"It has been a long time in the making and we are very excited to present to the world the first official full-length Thanatopsis album “Initiation”. This album contains timeless songs that fans, both old and new, will appreciate. Bringing our sound to the masses has been a collective dream of ours for a long time. In a scene that is saturated with bands, we are proud to release something that is unique in character to the metal world at large."

New All-Stars melodic death metal band/project ACT OF DENIAL - feat. by lead guitarist and songwriter Voi Cox (Koziak, Victim), guitarist and lyricist Luger (Benighted, Koziak), vocalist Bjorn Speed Strid (Soilwork), bassist Steve Di Giorgio (Death, Testament), drummer Krimh (Septicflesh) and keyboardist John Lönnmyr (The Night Flight Orchestra) - have issued a new studio update, and announcing their new single 'DOWN THAT LINE' coming out on October 25th, read below.
"We have just finished recording our new album 'Negative', the songs are in process of mixing and mastering. Our new single 'Down That Line' will be unleashed on October 25th and it will be available for download on our bandcamp page. 'Down That Line' is yet another melodic death metal song, different from the previous ones and we've prepared also a video with the whole band line-up!  And a week before the single, we will introduce our keyboard player John Lönnmyr in a small announcement video. Besides this, we will have more surprises for our fans + more special guests are on the way...  stay tuned for some cool music!!"
'Controlled', feat. DEATH's Bobby Koelble: https://youtu.be/FN3OaF8AlcM
“Puzzle Heart”: https://youtu.be/r9gybjyO0wc
Guitarist/lyricist Luger on the debut album 'Negative':
"The finished songs are already in the process of mixing in Fredman studio. Me and Voi decided not to focus on one genre so there will be tunes for every metal fan. We're doing this mostly for ourselves and the songs we write are the songs we love to listen at home, hoping they will reach also to other people, as to ourselves." 
Lead guitarist/songwriter Voi Cox adds:
"We were always influenced by swedish style and sound when we were kids that's why it is a big honor to us to have Bjorn from Soilwork on this album, also Fredrik Nordström from Fredman Studio who basically invented that sound. We grew up listening to Soilwork, At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity, In Flames and ofc Death, and that's why we're so excited that Steve is in this project, too. So we are very much influenced by those bands but that doesn't mean that our songs will sound like that and you will hear all that in our debut album."
ACT OF DENIAL line-up:
Voi Cox - Lead guitar, programming
Luger - Rhythm guitar
Bjorn Speed Strid - Vocals, backing vocals
Steve Di Giorgio - Fretless bass

RICARDO FALCON, ex- guitarist and bassist of Sinister and ex- session guitarist of Belphegor relaunches the project itSELF, founded in Brazil in 2005 and paused in 2014. The new album 'THE ABSENCE' is in the works.
Falcon issued the following:
"I'm reviving my old project called itSELF, founded in Brazil in 2005 and paused in 2014. The project will count with Steve Di Giorgio (Sadus, Death, Testament) on bass, Carsten Altena (The Monolith Deathcult, Sinister) on orchestration and samples, Estevan Furlan - co founder of the band (Tribal Scream) on drums and vocals and I as a guitar player. Terrance Hobbs (Suffocation) will participate as a guest on the album with a solo.
With much better know-how and more mature, we want to finish this year the recording of the new album called 'The Absence' with the idea of releasing it in the first semester of 2021 and with the possibility of touring in the second semester if COVID let us play live shows by that time.
Unfortunately due to the situation of the COVID-19, I had to sell everything I had, from guitars and amplifiers to headphones, wireless, pedals, etc. adding a loss of at least 10000EUR and an invaluable emotional loss, which made me very sick and aimless. The truth is that music has become part of my life and that dark time made me reflect on how badly it makes me feel to be away from it. In this I saw a solution to get closer to the music market, giving crowdfunding a chance, since my guitars have been recorded since 2013. Even without any equipment and money at the moment, I hope to finish this honest work, done with heart and soul."

Have you ever felt gripped by the paralyzing sense of chaos that truly surrounds us, beyond the facades of normalcy and everyday calmness that we make life to be? It's a feeling akin to realizing how apathetic the world has grown over time, and how its the callousness of its 'good people' that lets everything fall into a state of disarray and maladjustment. If you have found yourself pondering about these realizations, the Mass Hallucination track from experimental black metal act MRTVI's newest full-length 'Omniscient Hallucinatory Delusion' will seem like the discordant angst-ridden death knell-esque lamentation that plays out perfectly to this very sickly feeling. The track premiered on Black Metal Daily along with a detailed interview featuring Damjan Stefanovic, the one-man powerhouse behind the MRTVI music. An excerpt: 
"Every note is carefully constructed to a greater design, weaving a startling web of sheer audio disturbance in order to open hitherto unseen and unknown portals of the mind. It’s a harrowing yet enlightening experience and is undoubtedly MRTVI at the height of its considerable and otherworldly powers, deconstructing life itself and allowing us to lay eyes upon the pulsating, labyrinthine systems within."
MRTVI  - “OMNISCIENT HALLUCINATORY DELUSION” 
Genre
- Experimental Black Metal
Release Date - November 6, 2020
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of - Imperial Triumphant, Veilburner, Gnaw Their Tongues, Norse, Plasmodium, Deathspell Omega, Satyricon
MRTVI from UK/Serbia shocked audiences around the world with their previous album 'Negative Atonal Dissonance' which was a surreal experience in black metal experimentation and improvisation. It was almost subconsciously executed with three mammoth tracks blending noise, ambient and black metal music. On their follow up album, MRTVI have concocted shorter songs segregated in four chapters, with the underlying purpose of infiltrating your thought waves and inseminating harrowing sounds that will alter your consciousness. Listening to 'Omniscient Hallucinatory Delusion' is like a nightmarish drug-induced trip that will take you to the darkest recesses of your mind and carve out memories that have been long subdued. That is why it is recommended to listen to the album from start to finish, or at least individual chapters collectively, as they represent something significant, a particular altered experience that will evoke feelings of fear and turmoil, and even relief. It's a parallel hallucinatory experience of the vagaries of life, concentrated and powerful, meant only for the strongest of minds that are able to withstand urban darkness, alienation, rot and horror.

Coming from Arizona, KING OV WYRMS have a debut album coming out in November of this year, and leading up to it, is the second single, “THORNE BEARER”.
This is the first album that Michael Sanchez has worked on exclusively by himself and the ability to work without restriction has made a major impact on how the band’s sound has grown since conception. It has always been a classic death metal worship idea but as far as the level of involvement it has since its conception is totally different.
For fans of :  Morbid Angel, Bloodbath, Enthroned, Vader, Dark Funeral
“Thorne Bearer is more or less the quick concept of Maggots, an almost sequel and climax to the song structure and lyrical concept of rejecting faith and becoming your own “God”. There really isn’t too much about this song other than the blunt directness of the lyrics and the almost chaotic structure of the music to symbolize that hatred I felt towards religion,” explains Sanchez.
The lyrical concepts on the album derive from many dark places including Lovecraft’s obscure ideas and personal issues. Creating this music has proved to be an outlet for Sanchez who hopes it can also serve as an example for others, either by the overall aural overload or if they feel the need to dissect the lyrical content even further.
Recommended for fans of Bloodbath, Enthroned, and Vader, King Ov Wyrms is a massive grim beast of blackened death metal that Sanchez has been dying to bring forth to the world for years.
“Thorne Bearer” can be heard via its premiere on NoCleanSinging

The debut album “LORD OV THORNES” comes out on November 20, 2020.

5. The Maggots That Crawled From The Wounds (8:57)

Album Length: 51:26
About:
King Ov Wyrms is homage to classic death and black metal acts of the late ’80s/early ’90s with a touch of modern aggression.
Formed in Tucson, AZ. King came from the want of a more aggressive act when the main band of Michael Sanchez, Pain Patterns, started taking its roots in early 2015. He loved the music he was creating but felt that the band couldn’t fulfill his desire for a purely aggressive musical venture.
The project went through many different lineup changes only to be consistently held together by Sanchez. Having studied classical music and jazz to a degree while growing up, it gave him the tools to write comfortably on his own even in the concept of metal music. He starts out with a basic riff or a small melody line off of a piano and just adds on and on until it manifests into some sort of abomination of sound.
In early 2020 upon Sanchez’s departure from the power metal act Judicator, he decided to pull King out of hiatus but only as a solo effort to produce a full-length album. Over the span of several months, Sanchez was able to completely record all of the songs previously written for King as a full lineup, this time all the music was performed and written solely by him.
King Ov Wyrms will release its debut album “Lord Ov Thornes” on November 20th, 2020, and it will feature lyrical themes encompassing the occult, and a deep love for Lovecraftian horror.

After almost 5 years, Danish black metal giants GENFÆRD has slithered out from their wretched catacomb, to give you our second offering. "BLODHÆVN", which literally translates to "Blood vengeance" is a title which refers to the old code, or right, to avenge a murder by killing the murderer, or a blood-relative thereof. Blodhævn is a collection of 9 tracks totaling almost an hour of ferocious black metal, straight from the depths of our own accursed minds. We have once more chosen our mother tongue, Danish, as the medium for the lyrics, dealing with revenge, betrayal, strife and upheaval of life.
Included are the full album, lyric booklets, cover art, band photos and artwork by the French artist Maxime Taccardi, painted in his own blood.
Blodhævn will be released on tape through Nebula Aerterna Productions on the 19th of October  
https://nebulaaeternaproductions.bandcamp.com/
Also, our bandcamp will still carry the release in digital format (released 31st of January 2020):

Swedish death metal band PURGATORIUM releases first new music in over 25 years! TITAN is a contemporary but in a way old-school death metal song about the demise of mankind and religious beliefs trying to withstand the awakening of a gruesomely strong Furia taking back what is Her’s.  
The song is the first scheduled single release from the band's debut album ”Burning Visions” and is the first release with new material since 1995. Purgatorium has been working on recording and writing sessions in different ways since again uniting as a band with founding members David, Daniel and Mikael back in 2017 and now it is finally time to uncover the results. The main focus in the songwriting has been to let the old ways last in the compositions. To keep up their own way of making the music without compromise.  
Purgatorium was founded in 1989 in the village Tavelsjö located outside of Umeå and released the demo "Cup of Blood" the same year. The music was characterized by the early wave of Swedish death metal with large elements of the instrumental parts. During the first half of the 90s two additional demos were released, "Enter the Gate" and "Travels". The band's last release before the breakup in 1995 was the participation on W.A.R. Compilation - Volume One, a classic compilation of Swedish death metal from that time era consisting of the Dark Tranquility, Dissection and In Flames, etc. The purgatory was extinguished and cooled during the ca. 20 years have passed since then.
In 2016 it began to smolder again in the remains of the melodic melting pot of death metal that Purgatorium consists of. The band's founding members David Israelsson (guitars & lead vocals), Daniel Israelsson (drums), and Michael Lindberg (lead guitar), teamed up with Jens Karlsson (Bass, also in Persuader, etc.) to start working on new material and played several shows during 2016 and 2017 including the international House of Metal festival in Umeå. In 2017 also saw the first official release with compilation album Still In Search via Discouraged Records consisting of 7 tracks from 2 different recordings which gained a lot of review across Europe. 
Now begins a new chapter, here is Titan!

David Israelsson - Lead vocals, Guitar
Daniel Israelsson - Drums
Mikael Lindberg - Lead Guitar
Jens Karlsson - Bass, Backing Vocal

The hunt continues in this social slaughter in which the rotten human remains serve as food in this decaying society where we must be extremely attentive to the voracious howls of the wolves at night to start this psychological feast that will devour you voraciously in a merciless and socially atrocious way...
Vultör intends to voraciously devour the inhuman remains of this humanity that finds itself chained to its own torments of self-enslavement as human beings in a system created by itself and which here becomes a nefarious majedore of the rotten coffins opened here in order to feed the damned vultures of death with all the psychological rottenness of this socially sick human scum...

IMPERISHABLE is a brand new extreme metal band out of South Carolina. Created by NILE guitarist Brian Kingsland, they are off to a solid start with plans to release the EP “REVELATION IN PURITY”(release date to be determined). Before presenting the final cut, the band is introducing themselves with their debut single, “Exclusion Continuum”. The track is dark, aggressive and catches the overall feel of the forthcoming EP, which summons riffs molded around power rather than flash. No overthinking, just pure unadulterated metal.
For fans of : Emperor, Angelcorpse, The Legion, Morbid Angel, Obituary
Joined by Alex Rush (bass) and Tommy Harrison (drums), the trio is determined to deliver ferocious material while retaining memorable hooks. Grinding, yet, groovy this mindset allows the group to focus on what inspires them; head banging compositions.
When asked what fans can expect from them, Kingsland responds:
“If you enjoy lots of technical wanky guitar, overly polished production; you won’t enjoy this record. This album will be more old school and raw. Topics lean heavily on self-confidence and strength in one’s beliefs. We shred, but only when it fits the composition. This band is all about the riffs and songwriting.”
Recommended for fans of Angelcorpse, Emperor, and Obituary, Imperishable is getting your attention with a swift kick in the teeth!

The single is available for download on https://imperishable.bandcamp.com/releases
The release of their debut EP will be announced at later date.
About:
Imperishable is anextreme metal side project created by Brian Kingsland (Nile/Enthean), who writes the majority of the music, plays guitar and takes up vocal duty, with contributions from bassist Alex Rush (Enthean), and the pummeling drums of Tommy Harrison.
From South Carolina, the band was started as an outlet for Kingsland’s musical ideas that didn’t necessarily fit with his other bands; the predominant influences are the darkness of black metal and the power of death metal; namely, Emperor, Angelcorpse, and Morbid Angel.
The writing process for the band varies between the songs, Kingsland is always writing, tracking ideas with a growing repertoire waiting to be refined. With accommodations for musical personalities and influences, the song takes shape, with Kingsland’s lyrics adding the final touch. Lyrical themes are generally up to listener interpretation, but largely positive, confident and have some real-life application thrown in.
Conceived in late-2019, Imperishable will be releasing a four-track EP “Revelation In Purity” (date to be determined), which is produced and mixed by Kingsland. Mastered by Jamie King. There will likely be more music coming from the band in the future

It's a pleasure for us to present you "The Past" the first track from HELFIR new album "THE JOURNEY" which will be released on November 6th. You can view the offical video in exclusive on the great FRIEDHOF MAGAZINE at https://bit.ly/33sY6jw
Luca Mazzotta, mastermind of the project, says about this song: “The Past is one of the first songs I wrote for "The Journey". This song describes a memory and a state of mind when I was a teenager. I still remember that moment very well and I always carry it with me. It was a Sunday morning and there was a rainy sky. The Past is an aggressive song but with a melodic vocal line because I wanted to associate the restlessness of that moment with a memory of the past. It's a technical song between doom and death metal style without growl. Maybe I can say that there is also something of Amorphis sound”.
HELFIR will serve you the finest tunes of decadent and emotional Dark Doom Music.

Wolves Of Hades is proud to present UTHULLUN’s highly anticipated debut album, “DIRGES FOR THE VOID”, on vinyl LP format. The record is set to be released on November 13th 2020.
Harmony | Discord | Sorrow | Ecstasy.
Succeeding an EP self-released the past year, the enigmatic ensemble cryptically called UTHULLUN undertakes a crossing through the uttermost nether regions of mind, body, and spirit. As our terrestrial realm is overwhelmed in havoc and bewilderment, the ghastly tome of harmony and discordance aptly titled “Dirges for the Void” hails and scorns the grimness of such hopelessness. For every melody breathes in and below a suffocating miasma of scorching dissonance and that dichotomic element permeates throughout the whole of this grand work.
Musically defiant, overtly intense, this seven-track ordeal marks a step forward in UTHULLUN’s evolution in a multifold way, whether through the piercing technicality of the overall performance or the complexity of the arrangements. Indeed, one faces a maelstrom of sublimely intricate patterns, dissonant shapes, and razor-sharp riffs played with supreme precision and multi-layered tenacity without ever losing an organic feel and depth that at times gets lost in other more dexterous and conceptually ambitious music.
The sonic depth of the production definitely benefits the projection of such a grandiose and multilayered aura, for its cohesive and organic nature compels the music to breathe without sounding forced or artificial. This dynamic attitude transpires within the magnificent rhythmic section. The drumming execution seizes the listener from beginning to end on a tastefully flawless endeavor that for all its elaborate and ornate performance manages to constantly carry a sentient touch of grooving complexity, a close accomplice of the serpentine bass impulses that widen the sonic pallet and enhance the weight of this (dis)harmonic undergo.
As one falls imbued in the instrumental presence, demonic shrieks and screams blaze throughout “Dirges for the Void”, a vocal performance as vicious as it conveys a
mystic and somberness that confer an almost otherworldly feel to these 40 minutes.
Released by Wolves of Hades on a Limited Edition LP, UTHULLUN casts a step forward in the direction of the abyss with an opus of sinister Black Metal emanated from the Void, a requiem to the dying soul of a rotten world.

The Epic Power Metal force that is ARRAYAN PATH returns with the band’s 8th full-length, a follow-up to 2018’s double-disc album “ARCHEGONOI”.
Titled “The Marble Gates to Apeiron”, the new album is due to be released on November 27th on CD and Digital.
The new ARRAYAN PATH album is much heavier than its predecessor and more on the “up-tempo” scale, while at the same time maintaining all the characteristics and trademarks that make up the unmistakable style and sound of ARRAYAN PATH.
Nicholas Leptos, the band’s driving force (also current vocalist of legendary WARLORD) comments: “We worried less about doing something ‘out of the ordinary’ and more about writing good melodic metal songs. There was also more collaboration between the band members, maybe more than ever before!”
Lyric-wise, even though the new album is not a concept album, it does have a common theme running among the songs, one that deals with human nature as it has developed through the ages. For this reason the album is “divided” into 3 parts, with each part made up of 3 songs: The Past, The Present and The Future.
Even though the subject matter might seem varied between songs, as already mentioned there is a central theme that revolves around human reaction and response; from the destruction of our planet, to people’s quarrels regarding the pandemic, life, death, religion and mourning; and of course, somewhere in all that, the band’s favorite subject since forever: mythology!
The album was produced by Slava Selin and ARRAYAN PATH and mixed by Simone Mularoni who has given a breath of fresh air to the band’s music over the past few years. Artwork was done by Giannis Nakos at Remedy Art Designs.
The first single off the album (“A Silent Masquerade”) is available for streaming and free download together with its lyric video at www.pitchblackrecords.com where pre-order information is also available.
Tracklisting:
1. The Marble Gates to Apeiron
2. Metamorphosis
