Die deutschen Black Metaller von SERVANT haben bei Black Sunset/MDD unterschrieben und legen mit „BLESSED BY THE LIGHT OF A THOUSAND STARS“ ein beeindruckendes und unglaublich ausgereiftes Debut Album vor, welches stilistisch zweifellos auf den Schultern der großen skandinavischen Black Metal Bands steht.
Das 9 Songs umfassende Album wird am 26. November erscheinen. Darauf zieht die Band nahezu alle Register der dem Genre zur Verfügung stehenden Stilmittel und verzichtet auf bombastische Passagen mit Chören, Keyboards und orchestraler Unterstützung genausowenig wie auf bewusst roh und „monoton“ gehaltene Passagen.

TEMPLE OF EVIL – “APOLYTROSIS”
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Folter Records
Vertrieb: Alive
VÖ: 26.11.2021
Zypern ist nicht unbedingt für finsteren Black Metal bekannt. Doch seit Mitte 2008 hat sich eine düstere Existenz im sonnigen Staat manifestiert. In einer unheiligen Vereinigung haben sich TEMPLE OF EVIL gegründet, um ihre Philosophie und Ideologie in ein musikalisches Gewand zu hüllen. Es dauerte aber seine Zeit, bis das verborgene Schaffen erstmals das Antlitz der menschlichen Existenz erblickte. Anfang 2015 veröffentlichten TEMPLE OF EVIL ihren ersten Opus „The 7th Awakening“ und brachten den Black-Metal-Untergrund zum Raunen. Das atmosphärische Ritual wurde fortan auch auf den Bühnen zelebriert, bevor sich das Quartett in die Schatten zurückzog.
Der TEMPLE OF EVIL hat einen Vertrag beim renommierten Black-Metal-Label Folter Records unterschrieben und wird eine weitere Botschaft aussenden. „Apolytrosis“ ist geprägt vom Feuer des unheiligen Kults und getragen von einer dunklen Atmosphäre. Definitiv ein Underground-Funken, der sich von der Mittelmeer-Insel einem Feuer gleich zum Festland hin ausbreiten und neue Anhänger rekrutieren wird.

NOCTURNAL NIGHTMARE – “ABSTRAKT SINNE”
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Talheim Records Germany
VÖ: 30.09.2021
Nocturnal Nightmare wurde im Jahr 2012 in Schweden, vom vorherigen Gründungsmitglied Lucian, ins Leben gerufen. Grotesk trat der Band, etwas später, im selben Jahr als Sänger und Gitarrist bei.
Zusammen erschufen sie die erste EP ‘Reflections of a Suicidal Mind’, aufgenommen im Sommer 2013 mit vielen gemeinsamen Zielen und Visionen. Nach der zweiten EP ‘Allt Har sitt Slut’, im Jahr 2014, entwickelten die Mitglieder unterschiedliche Ziele und musikalische Ideen und Lucian verließ die Band im Jahr 2015, um sich auf seine persönlichen Ziele zu konzentrieren.
Grotesk führte die Band fort und im Herbst 2020 trat Adimere, von Afraid of Destiny, der Band bei. Seitdem haben sie die Single ‘Skuggvarelsen’ veröffentlicht.
Die lyrischen Themen der Band waren, Depressive Black Metal typisch, hauptsächlich auf den selbstmörderischen Aspekt einer Depression bezogen. Aber seit dem Release der Single, im Jahr 2020, blickte die Band mehr auf den beschaulicheren Teil der Depression, die wiederholenden Tage, der Hass gegen die Menschheit und sich selbst, kombiniert mit einem neuen Sound, der sich mehr an atmosphärischem Black Metal orientiert.
Während die ersten Veröffentlichungen von sich aus rauh und dissonant waren, arbeiten sie heutzutage auf einen definierteren, ausgereifteren Sound hin, der aber den originalen Geist von Nocturnal Nightmare immer noch weiter tragen soll. Sie erschaffen dabei eine Reise die den Hörer in den Sound und die Lebenserfahrungen der Mitglieder, eintauchen lässt.
Album Konzept:
‘Abstrakt Sinne’ ist die Materialisierung von allem, was mit der Menscheit falsch lief.
Dieser abstrakte Pfad bildet sich aus 6 Liedern, von denen jedes Gefühle und Verhalten vermittelt, die sich aufbauten und schlimmer wurden und von diesen, auch neuen Ereignissen der Geschichte, die Menschen nun dauerhaft geschädigt und verängstigt sind.
In diesen letzten Jahren wurden Leben tief zerissen. Selbsthass. Apathie. Wahnvorstellungen.
Menschenhass. Negative Wiederholungen. Depression. Dies sind einige der Themen die in der Musik dieser Veröffentlichung behandelt wurden. Mach dich bereit und nimm die Einladung dieser Reise in die tiefen der Psyche an.
Line-Up:
Grotesk - Gesang
Adimere - Alle Instrumente

ARCTIC SEA SURVIVORS – “THE LONGEST DAWN (THE SOULS BURN IN EVERLASTING FIRES)”
Genre: Doom Metal
Label: Talheim Records 
VÖ: 30.09.2021
Im Jahr 2014 haben sich drei Survivors zusammengefunden, um im Kollektiv an einer neuen Soundvision zu arbeiten. Nach einem ersten Demo (2015) und einer mehrmonatigen Solo-Expedition von Survivor I, stieß Survivor IV zur Band und wurde schnell fixes Besatzungsmitglied dieses post-metallischen Doom Schiffes.
Was die ARCTIC SEA SURVIVORS ausmacht ist eine gewisse Schnittmenge an Vorlieben, der Hang zu Extremen in der Musik und gleichzeitig vier doch recht unterschiedlichen musikalischen Hintergründe, die einzigartige, hypnotische Soundlandschaften entstehen lassen.
Das erste Destillat dieser Zusammenarbeit nennt sich „Into Barren Lands“ (2018, Talheim Records) und versteht sich als instrumentaler Eisbrecher, der sich seinen Weg durch die brutale Einöde des Franz Josef Lands bahnt. Anlässlich ihrer Performance beim sagenumwobenen House of the Holy Festival, hat die Band 2019 in Eigenregie das streng limitierte „Inuktitut Tape” veröffentlicht, das von den extremen Lebensbedingungen und der Poesie der Inuit inspiriert wurde.
2020 folgt schließlich ein exklusiver Live-Mitschnitt, den die Band ihren Fans über Bandcamp kostenlos zur Verfügung stellt, um die COVID19 Isolation mit positiver Energie zu erleichtern.
2021 markiert den Abschluss der mit dem Debut begonnen Trilogie. Während sich “Into Barren Lands” mit den Bedingungen einer historischen Expedition beschäftigte und sich das “Inuktitut Tape” dem Leben und den Gebräuchen der indigenen Bevölkerungen der nördlichsten Breiten annäherte, schließt “The Longest Dawn - For the Souls Burn on in Everlasting Fires” den Kreis.
Thematisch begleiten die vier Survivors eine fiktive Person, die auf der Expedition des Debuts verschollen ging. Der einsame Wanderer muss sich, nach der Wiederereweckung durch Pana, seinen Weg zurück in “seine” Welt bahnen. Er passiert Abgründe der Natur, wie der Seele, überquert Ozeane und muss schließlich feststellen, dass die Welt wie er sie kannte nicht mehr existiert. Trost findet der geschundene Geist schließlich im Maelstrom der Seelen - Adlivun.
Wie nie zuvor erweitern die Arctic Sea Survivors ihre musikalische Bandbreite und zeichnen mit schroffen Riffs, verspielten Postrock-Teilen, Sludge-Parts im NOLA-Stil und gelegentlichen Post-Black-Metal-Ausbrüchen,den Weg des Individuums zu sich selbst. Durch psychischen und seelischen Herausforderungen, durch Reinigung und Katharsis ins Erwachen.
Aktuelle Besetzung:
Survivor I - Guitars
Survivor II - Bass
Survivor III - Drums
Survivor IV - Guitars

2019 brachten Cosmic Key Creations die längst überfällige Vinyl-Version des 1994er "Dance The Marble Naked"-Albums der U.K.-Kult-Doomster ENCHANTMENT heraus. Dem folgten 2020 eine Neuauflage des Albums sowohl im CD- als auch im Kassettenformat von Transcending Records. Das erneute Interesse inspirierte die Band, sich neu zu formieren und ihr zweites Album fertigzustellen, das schon 1994/5 (!) geschrieben und komponiert wurde, aber nie aufgenommen wurde. ENCHANTMENT gruben die alten Probebänder aus und beendeten das Album 25 Jahre nach dem Anfangsprozess. Dies ist das Album, das an ihr Debüt anknüpfen sollte. Die Songs sind eine spannende Zeitkapsel, die zurück in die Blütezeit des britischen Death/Doom-Metal der frühen Neunziger führt!
Der Eröffnungstrack des Albums 'As Greed As The Eye Behods' erscheint heute als digitaler Single-/Vorab-Track auf allen Streaming- und Download-Plattformen. Die digitale Single kommt mit exklusivem Cover-Artwork, das nicht auf dem Album verwendet werden wird.

ANAKIM – “THE ELYSIAN VOID”
Featuring current and ex members of Basement Torture Killings, Abgott, Bloodshot Dawn and The Drowning, the extreme music pedigree of Anakim is unquestionable. All that experience and skill has been poured into the making of the band’s second album, The Elysian Void, along with a unique sonic sorcery that can only be summoned by this particular combination of musicians, working in unholy harmony. Together they have created a sound of stunning power, melody and thrilling vitality; an album to be revered like the old gods whose stories it tells.
This journey through landscapes of fantasy and fear, history and horror begins with ‘Of Starlit Shrines’, a cavalcade of spiralling guitars, thundering drums and fearsome vocals. Stories unfold as riffs entwine, a glorious drama played out in sound. This is death metal at its most adventurous and imaginative, where the superlative song craft lifts the music beyond the walls of its designated genre. Songs like ‘Infinite Realities’ and ‘Malformed Chthonic Dream’ have that magical quality to enthral, to connect, to seize a place in the memory of all who hear them. The Elysian Void succeeds on multiple levels; it’s devastatingly heavy, technically impressive, beautifully crafted and inspiringly imaginative. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Samuel Turbitt (All Consumed, Unfathomable Ruination etc) and enfolded in the sublime artwork of Mark Erskine (Temple Of Demigod, Ghoul Chapel etc), this album is complete in every way.
When The Elysian Void was first completed in the summer of this troubled year, it stepped quietly from the shadows into the white noise of the pandemic with barely a raised fist to announce its arrival. Such an injustice could not be allowed to pass. One of the finest metal albums of the year should be unveiled with a deafening fanfare of acknowledgement! So on October 8th Imperative PR are relaunching Anakim’s masterpiece in the manner it deserves - do not let this album pass you by!

Los Angeles (CA) - Progressive Death Metal duo DELPHIAN have released a lyric video for "A Suicide Speech to Persuade," a track from forthcoming debut album SOMNAMBULANT FOREGOER. Dive in at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFoDVVmWPGk
For fans of :  Metallica, Slayer, Decapitated, Gojira and Opeth.
Certainly not a pro-suicide song, the lyrics represent a commandant from an ancient god for an old ritual. The band explains: "'A Suicide Speech to Persuade' is about the Aztec god, Tezcatlipoca. Each year an "Ixiptla" would be chosen who would be paraded around town and worshipped for the year’s entirety; all extravagances, food, drink, gifts, sexual partners, etc. were to enrich the Ixiptla’s finality. The Ixiptla was then sacrificed to Tezcatlipoca at the Toxcatl festival held in May; laid upon a stone slab, surrounded by four priests with a fifth priest slicing open the Ixiptla and raising its heart up to the sun. The song title, 'A Suicide Speech to Persuade,' is seduction from the god, commanding you kill yourself for him."
DELPHIAN will release Somnambulant Foregoer on November 12.
DELPHIAN was formed by brothers Jason and Matthew Williams while attending Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, CA. The album features the pummeling talents of Kevin Talley (Suffocation, Dying Fetus) on drums and bass wizardry of Martin Rygiel (Decapitated, Lux Occulta) with Jason Williams and Matthew Williams completing the lineup on guitars and vocals respectively. Mixed and mastered by Chris Collier (CMC21 Productions), Somnambulant Foregoer is a relentless, nine-track, 47-minute attack with themes rooted in darkness, focusing on the evils of reality, blending musical elements of technical death, groove and progressive metal.
DELPHIAN can also be found on screen in the Mike Judge comedy, “Extract,” as the band, God’s Cock.
Track Listing:
1. A Suicide Speech To Persuade
2. Devout Magisterial Form
3. Drip Me Toward The Ground
4. Speaking With the Shadows
5. How I Long For The Oort Cloud
6. Somnambulant Foregoer
7. Meanwhile, More Polemics With Kurt Gurkillis And Scud Moothers
8. Idolatry
9. Dimensions Disassociated
Cover Art: Travis Smith

Guten Tag, with the current lead times for vinyl production it was a long wait. But finally, it's possible to set a release date and start the pre-orders for the upcoming MINENFELD EP entitled “NIGHT RAID“. A re-release of the debut album “THE GREAT ADVENTURE“ on tape will be released on the same day too. Both are available for pre-ordering from: https://lycanthropic.de/product-tag/lycanthropic-chants

Listen to the title track at this location:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFu8ukuAr6I
Spawning from the global death-surge, “Night Raid” by MINENFELD will definitely leave you a memento mori impression on one of the heaviest slabs of ancient death metal. Delivering death metal in its most skull crushing quality and mid-paced madness that once you have learned from BOLT THROWER, this German war master quartet sounds like a tank rumbling across the corpse landscape. Every time their deadly beats pounding, the guitar onslaught and the drums blazing — it encapsulates the atrocities of battle.
Recorded at the Eastern Bunker, their attack in a mere 14 minutes is free floating chaos like an everflowing stream under the command of Henner Rekorder as the sound engineer and mastered by Role at Tonmeisterei which assists the band in finally churning out its distinctive signature sound. And the cover art contributed by Jan Buragay profoundly channeled MINENFELD’s energy to explore their darkest fantasy in a combat zone of unending cruelty and savage barbarism. May the war on nationalism never end!
Fitting for their name, MINENFELD (German for minefield), if you are ready to listen to a record that was written on bloodied fields and driven by war without end that soaring woefully. This utterly compelling masterpiece is for you.
The EP will be available in the following versions:
150x black 12“ vinyl with etching on side B. Packed in black poly-lined bags, 300gsm cover with obi-strip and 150gsm art paper insert plus download code.

Release date: 12th November 2021
MINENFELD - “THE GREAT ADVENTURE“ album on tape available for pre-order!
This is the thrid pressing of this great piece of Death Metal on tape. To accomplish the layout of the new EP “Night Raid“, this version will be kept in black and white:

Release date: 12th November 2021

AMEN CORNER – “JACHOL VE TEHILÁ “
In 1995, while the worldwide Black Metal scene was notoriously blooming, Brazilian veterans Amen Corner struck the world with their second full-length album “Jachol Ve Tehilá”. Back then having only been released on CD by the legendary Cogumelo Records (known for the cult releases of Sepultura, Sarcófago, Holocausto, etc), Nomad Snakepit saw it as a plight to release this milestone on LP at long last!
Being somehow a perfect fit between the older works of Samael, Rotting Christ and Mortuary Drape, Amen Corner knew just how to convince in their own original way, with timeless nostalgic riffs, sickly demonic vocals, and a perfectly outbalanced early 90’s sound!
Released for the first time on vinyl:
- Limited to 250 hand numbered copies
- Double LP pressed on Smokey vinyl
- Housed in a gatefold sleeve using the original '95 CD lay out
- 3 bonus tracks
- Almost 75 minutes of old school Black Metal
Release date: November 22nd, 2021
under exclusive license from Cogumelo Records.

single; "UNDER THE WEEPING SKY"
Doom/Death Metal from Sweden formed in 2021.
With a pure heart of heavy darkness, you will feel the impenetrable darkness overtake your spirit and absorb it completely.
Mike had been thinking for a while about forming a fairly pure death doom band and the music for a full-length was soon finished.
In 2021, he recruited Daniel T on vocals and keyboards and Reese on solo guitar.
Daniel T soon put Mike's music into words and shortly afterwards the band was signed by Kvlt und Kaos Productions.
-We Embrace the Darkness.

UNANIMATED return with a new album called “VICTORY IN BLOOD” which will be released on December 3rd, 2021!
This marks their first studio effort in over 10 years and can already be counted as another milestone in the long band history.
The truly incredible artwork and layout was handled by none other than Daniele Valeriani (Mayhem, Triptykon, Behemoth, Dissection, etc. – just to name a few).
The vinyl version comes in a Ltd. Gatefold 180g. 2LP, with an Etching on Side D, Art Print and 12-page LP-Booklet. This exclusive vinyl edition also includes a cover version of Brazilian metal legends Sarcofargo, which will be only available on this format. The CD version comes as a 6-panel Pocket Pac (eco-friendly enclosure) with 12-page CD-Booklet.
A specially visualized video for the title track is now available for you to watch  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHsPBHH-w1c
Richard Cabeza finds the following words what to expect about their new studio effort:
“The wait is over, once again the funeral trumpets sing the pestilence of lucifer! We are very excited to release our 4th full length album and open the gates to a new chapter and march further into the abyss. We really went deep within ourself to release the pure essence of the band. The unity of band is stronger than ever and I think this shows on this album. I feel this is the strongest, most honest, genuine and direct album we done. It's written in blood, carved in stone, our victory in blood!”
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Unanimated-Official/156195984418900
I couldn't be more excited to share this release with you all. It's not only the legendary band's highly anticipated new full length, but it's also Wombbath's best album in decades maybe, or ever. I daresay they've taken the classic "old school death metal" sound ahead with this hugely ambitious album. Two of the songs are currently streaming on Bandcamp.
WOMBBATH  - “AGMA”  
Genre - Death Metal 
Release Date - December 31st, 2021
Record Label - Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of: Carnage, Grave, Entombed, Gatecreeper, Revel In Flesh, Heads For The Dead, Hypocrisy, Edge of Sanity, Desultory
After releasing their 30th anniversary release in 'Tales of Madness' and giving us a glimpse of their progressive approach in the two new songs that were part of that compilation, Wombbath return with the mightiest album of their career. It lays waste to everything they've done in the last few years because this album is a quantum leap ahead. Just when it seemed that the old school death metal genre was stagnating and the whole HM-2 sound was getting redundant, it took the very legends to breathe new life into this style and show us how to evolve without betraying it completely. 'Agma' is fiercely experimental in the way it introduces high pitched vocals, violins, and eerie melodies to the firmly old school and robust-sounding pummelling death metal that we've come to expect from them, with lurching riffs and grinding parts. To that extent, the refreshing experimental parts not only coexist with the traditional death metal sound but they complement them in ways hitherto unexperienced. Every song on this ambitious double album offers something different, either challenging or unique, and warrants its place on it. It's exhilarating to listen to these ancient death metal warriors and their brilliant application, which makes even a time-worn genre sound exciting all over again, with constant innovations holding the ability to surprise and overwhelm when newer bands don't. 'Agma' is a tour de force in the style, an anomaly, an aberration which is deliberate and well thought out. It takes exceptional courage to evolve even after so many years, when most so-called legendary bands are doing their best to recreate the same old sound that got them known in the first place, and if only for that reason, Wombbath deserve your attention. It's another thing that Wombbath have decimated the perception of old school death metal with this album that's just as potent and captivating as ever.

INTRICATED – “APOCALYPTIC METAMORPHOSIS”
Label: Comatose Music
Release date: December 10th 2021
Genre: Brutal Death Metal
For fans of: Suffocation | Cryptopsy | Wormed | Deeds Of Flesh
Twisting the very fabric of reality, tearing through the layers of existence and warping everything you know to be true...a seething mass of chaos that has frothed and bubbled behind the curtain of perception for eternity. But now the walls have grown thin, constantly eroded by the ever-gnawing teeth that burst at will from the lawless mass. Order’s time is past, the scales have tipped and the balance is undone. Unhinged, beyond all concepts of control, purposeless yet relentless an apocalyptic metamorphosis has begun!
It has been more than two years since we announced to the world that Thailand’s masters of complex brutality, Intricated had signed in blood with the ultimate brutal death metal label, Comatose Music. Those two years have been filled with plague and pestilence, global chaos, but at long last the new full length album from Intricated is ready to be unveiled. Apocalyptic Metamorphosis is ten tracks of precision putridity and bludgeoning, blasting brutality. The riffs twist themselves inside out, darting from one extreme to the other in a bewildering display of deranged dexterity and skull cracking heaviness. The songs move from a nauseating, slime-ridden crawl to a terrifying skin flaying blast with barely a breath between. ‘Interdimensional Being...’ wrecks the nerves as you wait for the next assault to erupt from the shadows while ‘Iniquitous Creatures’ attacks from the off with a wild abandon, an almost gleeful savagery. Intricated offer you a million sights and sounds at once and eat you alive while you try to comprehend what’s happening. This is consummate extremity that draws on all the known possibilities of brutal death metal and carves out some unheard of, like hideous sculptures of blood and flesh. Outstandingly accomplished, Apocalyptic Metamorphosis is a monstrous masterpiece of chaos unleashed.
Five years on from their debut album, The Vortex Of Fatal Depravity, Intricated have pushed themselves to the limit and delivered a follow up worthy of their new label’s legacy. Adorned in the magnificent artwork of Toshihiro Egawa (Abigail Williams, Defeated Sanity, Krisiun etc) and mastered by Alan Douches (Atheist, Cannibal Corpse, Death etc) Apocalyptic Metamorphosis will be remembered as one of the defining death metal releases of this troubled year. From the sin swamped streets of Bangkok to the frenzied furnace of your nightmares – Intricated are coming for you!
