Merrimack unleash second new trackDe Xavier le 20/04/2017 à 22:47

MERRIMACK premiere second track of new album :

MERRIMACK are now revealing the second crushing song taken from their forthcoming fifth full-length, which bears the title 'Omegaphilia' and will be released on June 9th.

The track "The Falsified Son"



MERRIMACK comment: "Our will to create a record that is more rooted in the 90's era of black metal becomes pretty obvious on 'The Falsified Son', which is a straight forward and simple track. Our typical lead guitars, the slightly dissonant end, the addition of a guitar solo, and the mid-tempo middle break make it a strong tune, which has proved to be very well received at our latest live performances. The lyrics deal with the way of life that we have chosen and its consequences – with black metal (which is mentioned in the song) being an immense part of it."

MERRIMACK have previously unveiled the cover art (by Dehn Sora) and track-list of 'Omegaphilia', which can both be viewed below.



Track-list
1. Cauterizing Cosmos
2. The Falsified Son
3. Apophatic Weaponry
4. Gutters of Pain
5. Sights in the Abysmal Lure
6. Cesspool Coronation
7. At the Vanguard of Deception

Musicians as any artists can be roughly categorised into different groups by their approach to composing. There are those for example, who come with restless souls and always try to find new ways and break into uncharted territories. Others prefer to evolve within a certain genre, driven by a desire to hone their skills and striving to bring their art to perfection. MERRIMACK as black metal traditionalists obviously belong to the latter circle and their fifth full-length with the apocalyptic title 'Omegaphilia' is an impressive demonstration of how far the French band has matured.

MERRIMACK are breathing fresh life into an exhausted genre, not by heaping up epithets such as progressive, post-, and avant-garde, but by razor-sharp songwriting, captivating melodies, and close to perfect arrangements. 'Omegaphilia' achieves excellence through hard work and experience that shows through on every single song.

MERRIMACK were founded by guitarist Perversifier in 1994 with a clear vision to keep the black metal flame burning as an act of aesthetic terrorism – as adamantly based in the underground as opposed to any attempts to co-opt, commercialise, or turn the style into a self-parody.

With a number of demo recordings ('Prologue' - 1995, 'Act 1' - 1995, 'Horns Defeat Thorns' - 2001) and split releases (with Hirilorn in 1998 and Sargeist in 2002), the French gained respect in the scene by remaining true to their words. Although MERRIMACK decided to reach out to a larger audience with the release of their first full-length 'Ashes of Purification' (2002), the Parisians did not sever their roots with the underground at any time.

'Of Entropy and Life Denial' (2006) and 'Grey Rigorism' (2009) followed and witnessed MERRIMACK closing ranks with the most influential, active, and authentic acts of the French black metal scene. Their classic combination of harsh sound with epic structures appealed to critics and fans alike and put the band on their celebrated first US tour with MARDUK and NACHTMYSTIUM in 2009.

Following the recording of 'The Acausal Mass' (2012) again in the legendary Necromorbus Studio (WATAIN, DESTRÖYER 666), MERRIMACK embarked on a European tour with Norwegian icons MAYHEM and accepted invitations to prestigious festivals such as Hellfest in their native France, Germany's Party-San Open Air and Summer Breeze and Montreal's Messe des Morts in Canada.

Having firmly established their black name and message around the globe, MERRIMACK are setting a bold exclamation mark with 'Omegaphilia'. Be warned, this album is determined to remain in your playlist for a long time.

MONTE PITTMAN News / Vidéo " Obliterated"De Xavier le 20/04/2017 à 22:41



Having released his new album, Inverted Grasp of Balance, last year via Metal Blade Records, Monte Pittman is now launching a performance video for the album track "Obliterated", featuring drummer Richard Christy and bassist Billy Sheehan (both of whom played on the album). To watch "Obliterated" (with footage of Billy Sheehan from the album's recording sessions), please visit: https://youtu.be/tBOYhLCputg

There are great guitarists, great vocalists and great songwriters, but Monte Pittman is one of the elite few who can truly lay claim to all three titles. With his fourth full-length, Inverted Grasp of Balance, he has once again raised the stakes, delivering a riveting collection of full force metal that showcases his continuing evolution, undoubtedly expanding his devout - and ravenous - fan base. The record also features powerhouse drummer Richard Christy of Charred Walls Of The Damned/Iced Earth/Death fame and virtuoso bassist Billy Sheehan, famous for his work with a plethora of talented artists - including David Lee Roth, Mr. Big and, more recently, Winery Dogs. The skill of all concerned explodes from the speakers!


SVARTSYN reveal new song and album detailsDe Xavier le 19/04/2017 à 23:51

Swedish black metal band SVARTSYN revealed details surronding its new album "In Death", which is set to be released on the 9th of June via Agonia Records. Listen to the first single titled "Seven Headed Snake"



"In Death" is the successor to "Black Testement" from 2013. The album was recorded in the Belgian Mortsella Studio in March and December 2016, and in January 2017. Mixing and mastering took place at Clintworks Studio (Amon Amarth, 3 Inches Of Blood, Misery Index). The cover artwork was created by Chadwick St John (Arckanum, Horna, The Piper graphic novel).

SVARTSYN plays dark, grim and misanthropic black metal. The music operates from mid-paced to fast and sinister tempos, featuring a dynamic melodic range injected into an overall feeling of obscurity and brutality. Originally formed as Chalice in 1991, and renamed to SVARTSYN three years later, the band can be considered as a one man project led by Ornias. He sang and played all instruments on "In Death", except for drums. Along its career, the band put out a number of albums celebrated in the underground black metal scene, including the 1998 debut album "The True Legend".

Ornias commented: "The new record completes and combaines the Black Testament and the Nightmarish Sleep albums. My revelations. My deathwork".

Tracklist:
1. Seven Headed Snake
2. Dark Prophet
3. With Death
4. Inside The White Mask
5. Wilderness Of The Soul
6. Black Thrones Of Death
7. Exile In Death

Album formats:
- jewelcase CD,
- limited red LP and regular black LP,
- two different black t-shrts with white and silver/grey print.

Pre-orders are available in physical and digital formats.

Line-up:
Ornias - vocals, guitars and bass.
Hammerman - drums.

IGORRR NewsDe Xavier le 19/04/2017 à 23:47

On June 16th, Igorrr - the brainchild of French musician and eclectic composer Gautier Serre - will release their new album, Savage Sinusoid, via Metal Blade Records. On this record, electronic manipulations, accordion, saxophone, sitar, harpsichord, mandolin and strings sit comfortably alongside ruthless blastbeats, chunky riffs, death grunts and soaring operatic vocals - and as chaotic as this might sometimes seem, there is no lack of heart behind everything thundering from the speakers. To watch a behind-the-scenes video of the making of Savage Sinusoid, part 1 of the series can be viewed here:



A video for the album's first single, "ieuD", can also be viewed at: http://www.metalblade.com/igorrr/- where Savage Sinusoid can be pre-ordered in the following formats:
--Digipak CD
--pale skin clear vinyl (limited to 500 copies)
--cream/white splatter (limited to 200 copies - EU exclusive)
--golden yellow vinyl (limited to 100 copies - Bandcamp exclusive)
--tan-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies - US exclusive)
*exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

Savage Sinusoid track-listing:
1. Viande
2. ieuD
3. Houmous
4. Opus Brain
5. Probleme d'emotion
6. Spaghetti Forever
7. Cheval
8. Apopathodiaphulatophobie
9. Va te foutre
10. Robert
11. Au Revoir

To realize Savage Sinusoid as a completely sample-free record, Serre reunited with vocalists Laurent Lunoir and Laure Le Prunenec, along with drummer Sylvain Bouvier, and collaborated with more musicians than on any of his previous releases - one of those guests being Cattle Decapitation's Travis Ryan, who lends his vocals on "Cheval", "Apopathodiaphulatophobie" and "Robert". "Viande" also sees Teloch (Mayhem) contribute some guitar/bass work, while "Houmous" features accordionists Pierre Mussi and Adam Stacey (the latter of whom is in Secret Chiefs 3 - a project by Mr. Bungle's Trey Spruance). While Savage Sinusoid draws from a plethora of genres, Serre has no intention of baffling or alienating potential listeners. As he explains:"I just want to make the music I love, without asking myself if it's gonna be too complex or too far from what people like. I want to make the music which has sense to me, with no restrictions, like a big party with metalheads, electronics nerds, classical and baroque-heads and gypsy violinists getting drunk and joining together to bring the best of every genre."

Igorrr will give European fans their first taste of new songs this spring/summer, with more shows to be announced soon. See below for all dates!

DON JAMIESON News/ Nouveau titre "Weed, Cigs, Election 2016"De Xavier le 19/04/2017 à 23:40

On Friday (April 21st), former "That Metal Show" host and comedian Don Jamieson will release his new comedy album, Communication Breakdown, via Metal Blade Records. Recorded at The Funny Stop in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, Communication Breakdown's title and cover come from Don's Rutgers University senior yearbook photo. Don explains: "My young nieces and nephews found the photo at my mom's house and starting texting me how funny it was, and when I saw it again after so many years, I agreed! I majored in communication, so it was just a matter of adding the 'Breakdown' to it, which is obviously something you never want to happen in comedy." For a preview of Communication Breakdown, the track "Weed, Cigs, Election 2016" can be heard at: metalblade.com/donjamieson - where the album can also be pre-ordered, and the previously released track, "Kiefer", can be streamed.

Communication Breakdown track-listing:
1. Dave Mustaine Riffs, Intervention, Baby in t...
2. Sober, Finger-Banging, Drunk Logic
3. Weed, Cigs, Election 2016
4. Kiefer
5. Myrtle Beach
6. Free Clinic, Raccoons
7. Rockers Aren't P.C.
8. Where Have All the Rock Stars Gone?
9. Rocking Women, Viking Metal, Big Four
10. Vagina No-No's, Van Fucker, Doggie Style
11. Dating at 50, Threesome (Almost)
12. Brad & Angelina, Great Head, Mr. Brownstone
13. Johnny Depp

Named one of the top 10 metalhead comedians by Revolver Magazine, Don has captured some of his most irreverent work to-date on his third album, Communication Breakdown. Don explains: "This album has tons of jokes but really revolves around 4 or 5 longer stories, which is something I've never really done before. I usually just like shot gunning jokes like beers at a frat party, but this time around I tried something a little different. It took a while to develop them for the stage but am really happy with the way they turned out, particularly the track 'Kiefer', which is a true story about a crazy night with the '24' actor.
Other than that, there's a little bit of something for everyone on this disc, and I hope people who buy or steal it enjoy it as much as I do."

Beyond Creation release video for "Coexistence"De Xavier le 21/03/2017 à 21:06

BEYOND CREATION are releasing a music video featuring their classic track "Coexistence", which was originally featured on their full-length 'The Aura' (2011).

The Canadian tech death masters are currently scheduled for two festival performances in Europe. The band will perform at Hellfest in Clisson, France on June 16th and next hit the UK Tech Fest in Winthorpe on July 9th.



BEYOND CREATION are currently working on more live dates in support of their acclaimed latest full-length 'Earthborn Evolution' (2014). Artwork and track-list of 'Earthborn Evolution' can be viewed below.
Track-list
1. Elusive Reverence
2. Sous La Lueur De L'empereur
3. Earthborn Evolution
4. The Great Revelation
5. Neurotical Transmissions
6. Abstrait Dialog
7. The Axiom
8. L'exorde
9. Theatrical Delirium
10. Fundamental Process

Feel the onrush of sweeping arpeggios, crushing waves of fretless bass, complex rhythmical patterns and erupting scales peppered with jazzy feeling and masterful execution under the mark of 'Earthborn Evolution', which names the sophomore full-length of BEYOND CREATION. The French part of Canada is home to a vibrant culture of technical Death Metal fostered by outstanding acts such as GORGUTS, CRYPTOPSY, MARTYR, and NEURAXIS. This illustrious family tree has produced many sprouts in the past, yet none of them are as brilliant as Quebec's new amazing scion: BEYOND CREATION! Founded in the Olympic city of Montreal in the year 2005, the band worked hard to gain technical expertise before putting out their only demo in 2010. The immediate buzz resonated within and beyond technical Death Metal circles and was followed up by a self-release of "The Aura" (2011), which was re-issued by Season of Mist in 2013. With their debut album, BEYOND CREATION delivered a ferocious blend of technicality, melody, and brutality aided by fang-filled growls, which was interwoven with beautiful progressive interludes. Yet this was just the beginning as 'Earthborn Evolution' proves beyond doubt. Their next step now catapults the Canadians into the top league of their genre, right among such giants as ATHEIST, DEATH or early CYNIC. There can be no doubt, BEYOND CREATION are leading proponents of the lightning evolution of the progressive technical death metal revolution!

Current line-up
Simon Girard: vocals, 8-string guitars
Kevin Chartré: 8-string guitars
Hugo Doyon-Karout: 6-string fretless bass

Replacire stream complete new albumDe Xavier le 14/03/2017 à 20:01



REPLACIRE are now streaming their complete forthcoming album 'Do Not Deviate', which has been slated for release on March 17th.

EPLACIRE comment: "Every note on this record was scrutinized for intent and purpose. This resulted in shorter, heavier songs, but they still retain the density that fans of extreme music can appreciate over multiple listens. We would devote entire weeks to writing and arranging. Some songs came together after a couple hours, others took days on end before they were completed. Several tracks never made it to the record despite multiple re-writes. We ended up with an intense record; a weird, cerebral, and crushing metal album that people will hopefully latch onto."



Track-list
01. Horsestance
02. Act, Reenact
03. Built Upon the Grave of He Who Bends
04. Any Promise
05. Cold Repeater
06. Reprise
07. Moonbred Chains
08. Do Not Deviate
09. Spider Song
10. Traveling Through Abyss
11. Enough for One

'Do Not Deviate' is a vicious beast. Relentlessly attacking and pushing forward. Yet REPLACIRE combine aggression with technical intricacy and lace their harsh death metal not only with the usual genre elements such as cascading syncopated breaks, odd-time signatures, and jazzy moments, but also inject a clever elegance, which is quite reminiscent of Chuck Schuldiner's DEATH under the influence of CYNIC. The band's obvious technical prowess is harnessed by the needs of good songwriting as opposed to self-indulgent musical masturbation.

REPLACIRE is the brainchild of guitarist Eric Alper, who founded the band in 2010. The American tech metal prodigies hailing from Boston, Massachusetts self-released their debut full-length 'The Human Burden' in 2012. The album's unique and wide-ranging material was an ambitious statement of intent that quickly established the New Englanders as a must-follow heavy act in their corner of the US. REPLACIRE quickly went on to push the boundaries by touring extensively throughout the Northeast and supporting such heavyweights as BEYOND CREATION, HATE ETERNAL, MISERY INDEX, and ARTIFICIAL BRAIN among others.

Now, REPLACIRE are ready to take on the word with their sophomore full-length. It is easy to predict that 'Do Not Deviate' will be an early milestone for technical metal in 2017 and bound to end up on many best of lists of that year. You don't want to take our word for it? Well, just give it a spin and listen carefully.

New Day DawnDe Xavier le 13/03/2017 à 19:54

The brand New Song by The band New Day Dawn called "The Broken".

The track is called "THE BROKEN". (Words & Music by Dawn Botti)
This is the first single off of New Day Dawn's soon-to-be released 3rd album which is due out in May, 2017.
The song is for anyone who has felt downtrodden, alone, oppressed or hopeless. Together we stand the strongest.

Here is the Youtube post for the song "The Broken":

REX BROWN : Signature avec STEAMHAMMER/SPVDe Xavier le 10/03/2017 à 22:13

REX BROWN BAND + Rex Brown to release the first solo album of his career

Multi-platinum selling artist Rex Brown (PANTERA, DOWN) is due to release his first solo album via SPV / Steamhammer within Europe. “I’ve been working on these songs for a long time,” says Brown. The yet to be titled full length will be the first time in Brown’s career in which he will serve as both, lead vocalist and guitarist in a band. The release is planed for June 23rd, 2017.

Georg Schröder (A+R Steamhammer) on the signing: "We are honored and proud to release the first Rex Brown solo album within Europe. The album shows a side of him, that many people won't expect but it is well worth to check it out and i'm really looking forward to get this one out there."

Steamhammer / SPV welcomes the REX BROWN BAND!



After a season away to gather his wits about him, rediscover his own roots, and assemble a group of players ready to help him execute his vision for the days ahead, Rex Brown reemerges with a semi truck’s worth of rock n’ roll tunes as honest and sincere as they come. The new album is the sound of the man’s own truth, forthright and ego-free. As he likes to say, “You’re only as good as your word and your word better be good.”

Rex’s solo album is full of mojo and the force of character, determination, and nerve. He tracked lead vocals, rhythm guitars, and bass, working with his primary collaborator and old friend, Lance Harvill, a Nashville-based guitarist and songwriter, on the album’s songs. “Lance was & is, my main man on this. Everything we did was finely tuned, both musically & brotherly.”

Drums were tracked by Christopher Williams, himself no stranger to diverse tastes, from funk music to punk. His talent has been utilized by country music star Lee Greenwood, the reconstituted Blackfoot and most recently, power metal legends Accept. The album was produced by New Yorker turned Nashville transplant Caleb Sherman, a multi-instrumentalist with work on records by Little Big Town and Porter Block, among others. “Caleb produced the project from a musician's standpoint,” adds Brown. “Not just a typical producer’s standpoint, which was something I definitely needed. Between Caleb and Lance, we were a force to be reckoned with. They really pulled out the best in me.” Peter Keyes, known for his work with Lynyrd Skynyrd can also be heard on a few tracks. All bass tracking came from Rex himself as well.

THE RETICENT Release Official Video for "The Decision"De Xavier le 26/02/2017 à 23:30

Progressive Metal band THE RETICENT have released an official video for "The Decision," a track from 2016 album On The Eve of a Goodbye. Check out the video:



Grammy-nominee and front man Chris Hathcock had this to say about the video:

"After months of planning, The Reticent has finally released their heart-wrenchingly beautiful new video "The Decision." Taken from the acclaimed album, On The Eve Of A Goodbye, this new video seeks to confront viewers with the reality of suicide and the loss of a loved one. Made more like a silent film than a music video, the video's narrative is heartbreaking in a way few music videos can be. This makes "The Decision" the perfect visual companion to the tragic masterpiece of On The Eve Of A Goodbye. Have some tissues handy."

Heaven & Hell Records released On The Eve Of A Goodbye on October 5. Purchase and/or streaming the album in its entirety at the following link:
https://heavenandhellrecords.bandcamp.com/album/on-the-eve-of-a-goodbye

The album was produced by Jamie King (BTBAM, The Wretched, Scale The Summit), and will be released on limited edition CD with complete lyrics. Check out the official video for album track "The Girl Broken" at this location, as well as "The Comprehension" video here.

This is undoubtedly the most ambitious and intense offering from THE RETICENT to date. An uncompromising autobiographical concept record, On the Eve Of A Goodbye is certain to exceed all expectations, boasting 73 minutes of stirring progressive metal that must be heard in its entirety to grasp the full magnitude.

On The Eve Of A Goodbye is an autobiographical concept album. All of the tracks serve to detail the day before, day of, and day after the suicide of THE RETICENT's mastermind Chris Hathcock's childhood friend, Eve. The songs chronicle his concern for her, her deterioration into self-hatred, and culminates with the tragic act and its aftermath. Not only a stylistic contrast to previous releases, this album is also intensely more personal than past Reticent albums (which were already emotional purges). The album is intended to be heard as a single entity rather than a collection of tracks.

The album was recorded in order in the span of a few days in the summer of 2015 (with a touch up in November 2015). Producer/Engineer Jamie King (known for previous work with BTBAM, The Wretched, Scale The Summit, etc.) chose to allow Hathcock to do as he needed in the studio as he felt it added greatly to the emotion of the record. In fact, on the song "Funeral for a Firefly" when trying to record the lead vocal part, Hathcock made it only two lines in before sobbing hysterically as memories and the trauma he had held back for a decade came flooding to the forefront. After calming to the point that he could catch his breath, Hathcock told Jamie King that he felt unable to record the song. Jamie encouraged him to try just one more time and if it didn't work, they'd drop it. Hathcock went back into the booth and made it through the entire song with constant tears streaming down his face and his voice cracking and quivering as he went through. Jamie was so affected by the performance he said he wanted to keep the raw performance - as in no edits to the sound so every sniffle and breath could be heard putting the listener in the booth with the despairing singer.

Outline Magazine UK wrote about one of the recent shows:

“From the start it’s clear why Prong have made such an impression on the music scene. They have a sound bigger than the sum of the three people on stage, and they know how to use it. It’s like someone has weaponised metal, and they’re using the audience for aural target practice. It’s impressive, and it’s also really, really fucking good.”


The current PRONG album "X-No Absolutes" was released last year through SPV/Steamhammer as a Digipak (incl. bonus track + sticker), Double LP Gatefold version (red vinyl, CD in paper sleeve) and as download and stream. The album entered the official album charts in Germany, the USA, Belgium and the UK.

'Do Not Deviate' is a vicious beast. Relentlessly attacking and pushing forward. Yet REPLACIRE combine aggression with technical intricacy and lace their harsh death metal not only with the usual genre elements such as cascading syncopated breaks, odd-time signatures, and jazzy moments, but also inject a clever elegance, which is quite reminiscent of Chuck Schuldiner's DEATH under the influence of CYNIC. The band's obvious technical prowess is harnessed by the needs of good songwriting as opposed to self-indulgent musical masturbation.

REPLACIRE is the brainchild of guitarist Eric Alper, who founded the band in 2010. The American tech metal prodigies hailing from Boston, Massachusetts self-released their debut full-length 'The Human Burden' in 2012. The album's unique and wide-ranging material was an ambitious statement of intent that quickly established the New Englanders as a must-follow heavy act in their corner of the US. REPLACIRE quickly went on to push the boundaries by touring extensively throughout the Northeast and supporting such heavyweights as BEYOND CREATION, HATE ETERNAL, MISERY INDEX, and ARTIFICIAL BRAIN among others.

Now, REPLACIRE are ready to take on the word with their sophomore full-length. It is easy to predict that 'Do Not Deviate' will be an early milestone for technical metal in 2017 and bound to end up on many best of lists of that year. You don't want to take our word for it? Well, just give it a spin and listen carefully.
