DOWNFALL OF GAIA NewsDe Xavier le 29/11/2018 à 23:10

Downfall Of Gaia announces new album, 'Ethic Of Radical Finitude'; launches first single, "As Our Bones Break To The Dance"



February 8th, 2019 sees Downfall Of Gaia release their anticipated new album, Ethic Of Radical Finitude! Ethic Of Radical Finitude is the international quartet's most melodic, most structured and most dynamic release to-date, once more building upon the epic and unique sludgy, crusty, exploratory metallic sound that has organically evolved with every release. "It combines elements from our earlier releases with the path we took on 'Atrophy' (2016)," states guitarist/vocalist Dominik Goncalves dos Reis. "There are long atmospheric parts with enough time to breathe, enough time to unfold, and on the other side there are harsh and melodic blastbeats. Each song is some kind of journey, with emotional ups and downs."


To hear the first single, "As Our Bones Break To The Dance", please visit: http://www.metalblade.com/downfallofgaia

where you can also pre-order the album in the following formats:

--Hardcover Digipak-CD

--180 g black vinyl

--Dead gold marbeld vinyl (ltd. 300 - EU-exclusive)

--Grey marbled vinyl (ltd. 200 - EU-exclusive)

--Pic-LP (ltd. 200 - EU-exclusive)

--White/Black split vinyl (ltd. 100 - Evil Greed exclusive)

--Red/black marbled vinyl (ltd. 200 - US-exclusive)

--Clear vinyl (ltd. 100 - US-exclusive)



Tracking for the album was handled at Hidden Planet Studio, Berlin by Jan Oberg, and Backroom Studios in New Jersey by Kevin Antreassian of Dillinger Escape Plan, and proved an entirely drama-free process, with everyone on the same page. A handful of guests also contributed their time, including some faces familiar to longtime followers of the band - rejoined by guitarist Peter Wolff, one of the founding members of Downfall Of Gaia, on "Seduced By..." and the drones on the songs "The Grotesque Illusion Of Being" and "We Pursue The Serpent Of Time" come courtesy of their former drummer Johannes Stoltenburg, aka Hidehidehide. "Working together and creating something new with former bandmates is a very special thing. Even if our ways had to split at some point, it's a true pleasure to get together again, with everyone bringing in their own new influences," Goncalves dos Reis enthuses. Furthermore, they collaborated with Nikita Kamprad from Der Weg Einer Freiheit, who added vocals to "We Pursue The Serpent Of Time", and spoken words for the song "Guided Through A Starless Night" were supplied by their friend Mers Sumida of Black Table.


Unlike its predecessors, Ethic Of Radical Finitude is not a concept album per se, but there is a core theme that unites the songs: discontented minds and the never-ending pursuit for more. "I guess everyone in life is trying to find this special 'warm' and safe place, their special place. To feel 'home', to feel 'safe', to feel satisfied. But maybe at some point you need to accept that it may never come, that you will never 'arrive'," Goncalves dos Reis asserts.



When the band hits the road next year, fans can expect to hear most of the tracks, marking the beginning of an exciting new phase in the life of Downfall Of Gaia. "Everyone was absolutely focused on this record, and I think this is something you can really hear in every song. All of us are more than satisfied with the result, and we're extremely looking forward to playing these songs live, and sharing it with the audience."



Ethic Of Radical Finitude track-listing:

1. Seduced By...
2. The Grotesque Illusion Of Being
3. We Pursue The Serpent Of Time

HATE NewsDe Xavier le 29/11/2018 à 22:51

Death/black metallers Hate from Poland enter the studio


Photo credit: Daniel Rusilowicz


Polish Death Metal squadron Hate is preparing to head to the studio in December to record the follow-up to 2017's Tremendum. The new opus, bearing the working title Salve Ignis, is tentatively slated for summer 2019 and will be the band's debut collaboration with the legendary Metal Blade Records. Details are still surfacing, but the band has so far released two raw pre-production tracks: "Path to Arkhen" and "In The Shrine Of Veles", and have confirmed that production on the finished record will be handled by the talented Wiesławski brothers at Hertz Studio, Poland (Behemoth, Vader, Decapitated, and others). Stay tuned for more info coming soon!


Check out the pre-production for the new Hate song "Path To Arken" at:



Hate have been praised by press and fans alike for years for creating lacerating and dark music, proven best on their current album Tremendum (2017). The album saw ATF Sinner (vocals, guitars) utilize the dark aspects of the mystic and arcane Slavonic folklore to explore themes both personal and impersonal. It is an album that is relatable at first listen, but that is hard to fully know.

Vomitory: 'Raped In Their Own Blood' and 'Redemption' now available as vinyl and digipak CD re-issues with bonus tracks!



Metal Blade Records will re-issue the first two albums by Swedish Death Metal legends Vomitory on January 11th, 2019. 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the band - expect more releases and live shows next year!



Both albums will be re-mastered and released on spinesleeve vinyl in the best quality possible - as well as on digipak CD with bonus tracks!



Vomitory comments: "Originally released on a small underground label in 1996, 'Raped in Their Own Blood' marked the end of the demo years and the start of a new era of Vomitory. And 'Redemption' (1999) showed a remarkable increase in brutality and progress towards what was about to come. It feels great to have these two death metal classics released by our long-time partner, Metal Blade Records, in time for our 30th Anniversary Reunion in 2019!"

WHITECHAPEL NewsDe Xavier le 01/11/2018 à 19:11


Whitechapel reveals details for new album, 'The Valley'; new single, "Brimstone", now online; "Ten Years of Exile" USA tour with Chelsea Grin, Oceano, Slaughter To Prevail kicks off today!



On March 29th, Whitechapel will release their 7th full-length, The Valley, via Metal Blade Records. Produced once again by Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, The Black Dahlia Murder) and featuring artwork by Branca Studio, The Valley is a reference to the part of Hardin Valley (west of Knoxville, Tennessee) where vocalist Phil Bozeman grew up. Set against this backdrop, he approaches his subject matter unflinchingly, building upon everything that came before, making it clear that he has survived that which he was forced to endure and is not afraid to confront it. "Phil has been upfront in his lyrics in the past about hardships he endured in his life as a child, and I believe with this record we tried to paint a better picture of that," says guitarist Alex Wade, who alongside his bandmates, stands 100% behind everything their vocalist has to say. "I feel our music is Phil's release from his past, being able to get it out and speak about it, and hopefully anyone who hears it that may have gone through similar experiences can find some release in it as well."


For a preview of The Valley, the first single, "Brimstone", can be heard now at: http://www.metalblade.com/whitechapel

where the album can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:

--digipak-CD

--box set (digipak CD, shoulder bag, 10 art prints, poster)

--clear w/ black smoke vinyl (US exclusive - limited to 600 copies)

--transparent red w/ black smoke vinyl (US exclusive - limited to 500 copies)

--opaque red inside black haze vinyl (US exclusive - limited to 300 copies)

--opaque cream w/ black splatter vinyl (US exclusive - limited to 300 copies)

--black inside transparent orange haze vinyl (US exclusive - limited to 300 copies)

--orange / red marbled vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 500 copies)

--180g clear vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 500 copies)

--clear / black marbled vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 200 copies)

--white / orange / red marbled vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 200 copies)

--orange / purple marbled vinyl (EMP exclusive - limited to 100 copies)

--blood splattered vinyl (Impericon exclusive - limited to 100 copies)

* exclusive bundles with shirts, plus digital options are also available!



Anyone throwing The Valley on for the first time will immediately recognize it as the work of Whitechapel, yet as has been the case with each release, there is also evolution in play. "Sound-wise, it's all over the place," Bozeman states plainly. "There's aggression, and then you're hit with ominous and emotional guitar riffs. It's mean, but then transfers to soft and inviting. It's a whirlwind of emotions throughout."



Stay tuned for more news about The Valley coming soon!

THE ORDER OF APOLLYON stream new albumDe Xavier le 25/10/2018 à 22:46


French black/death metallers THE ORDER OF APOLLYON are streaming their third studio album "Moriah" ahead of its October 26th release date via Agonia Records. If you feel lucky, visit this link for a chance to win a physical copy of the album. The album is available for listening at this link:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHQcDD7wRlo&feature=youtu.be






Co-founder, guitarist, vocalist and producer, BST, commented: "This third full-length release is without a doubt the most coherent and mature work we've ever put out. The fact that we have had for the first time in the band's history a stable line-up of devoted individuals with similar goals made this possible, and filled the production process with powerful creative energy".

THE ORDER OF APOLLYON was formed in 2008 by then Aborted members, guitarist BST (ex-Aosoth, VI) and drummer Dan Wilding (Carcass). Over the course of two studio albums, "The Flesh" (2010) and "The Sword And The Dagger" (2015), the band forged themselves a distinct path through death and black metal soundscapes, that evoke of Behemoth or Mgła, but with and edge towards French black metal in the vein of Aosoth or VI. After a line-up reconfiguration, forced by Wilding's transition to Carcass and conflicting schedules amongst remaining members, the band's French roots gained the upper hand. BST started off new and recruited veterans of his native black metal scene, including members of Temple Of Baal, Hell Militia and Merrimack. The new album "Moriah" is a testament to the new line-up, which introduced stability and evoked deeper levels of teamwork within the band. It is, without a doubt, the most coherent, mature and creative work the band ever put out.

"Moriah" was recorded, mixed and mastered at BST Studio, except for drums which were recorded at Studio de Saint-Loup. The cover artwork was created by Vincent Lécuyer.



Album formats:
- Digipack CD.

The Ocean Collective debuts explosive "Cambrian II: Eternal Recurrence" video



Continuing with the massive lead up to their highly anticipated new album, Germany's post-metal-elite The Ocean Collective are unveiling the absolutely explosive visuals for their unreleased single "Cambrian II: Eternal Recurrence," the third preview of Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic. As The Ocean Collective are known for their mammoth melodies, ebbing from crushing climaxes to gorgeously intricate interludes, so the video matches their prehistoric, theatrical leanings. Using makeup and hand-molded masks, director Craig Murray transforms vocalist Loic Rossetti into a Cambrian-age lichen-creature, weaving molds of the band into a rocky prehistoric landscape, taking hours to meticulously shoot the video frame-by-frame.

Explains Murray, "This is a practical effects film which leans towards multiple single frame captures to creature the sequences. Everything is built from scratch. There's long exposure animation, stop frame, miniatures and cloud tanks. If the thing I'm working with can't be physically picked up and held in my hand, I struggle to understand how to use it; I prefer this long, messy and exhausting process."



Adds The Ocean Collective mastermind Robin Staps, "Craig has created a unique aesthetic visualization of our music, which is different from anything I've ever seen. He's spent 6 sleepless weeks working on this basically non-stop, all by himself. He plastered tons of clay and lichens over Loic's face and head, and really managed to turn him into an imaginary 'Cambrian creature‘. It’s incredible to see the final result now, and how the whole thing has evolved."


What results is a nearly eight-minute epic journey through space and time, fusing art, special effects, science, and absolutely mind-melting rock - which can be seen here :



Phanerozoic I, which will be available November 2nd via Metal Blade Records (CD / digital) and Pelagic Records (vinyl), can be pre-ordered now here http://metalblade.com/theocean

"Nymphéas noirs", l'adaptation très graphique du polar de Michel BussiDe Tiphaine le 26/09/2018 à 10:17

Nymphéas noirs le polar de Michel Bussi, grand succès en 2001 en librairie, va être adapté au sein du label Aire Libre, de chez DUPUIS.

Le succès de ce roman est-il suffisant pour réaliser une bande dessinée exceptionnelle ? Oui si l’adaptation est co-écrite avec le talentueux Fred Duval et si le dessin et les couleurs de ce roman noir sont confiés à Didier Cassegrain. Pour la première fois, ce virtuose de la bande dessinée d’action arme sa main de pastels gras donnant toute son ambition picturale à cette intrigue qui se déroule dans la capitale de l’impressionnisme. Quand Mignola percute Monet, le polar français en bandes dessinées se réinvente.

A l’instar de Manchette avec Cabanes, Bussi trouve avec Cassegrain son incarnation graphique.

THE OCEAN releases behind-the-scenes of the upcoming album with DRUM! Magazine: Recording Drums in Sigur Ros' Icelandic Studio!

The abrasively cold island of Iceland is carved out by the extreme forces of nature, varying from pearl white snow covered mountain ranges to blackened volcanic deserts. Naturally, The Ocean Collective found this harsh and grueling expanse of land to be the perfect location for bringing their latest work to fruition, recording in a studio belonging to Sigur Ros and used by many Icelandic greats. Today, DRUM! Magazine goes behind the music and brings to light the intensive creative process of immersive songwriting.

The behind-the-scenes video exposes how drummer Paul Seidel approaches the kit through finding his inner peace, and focusing that newfound energy into producing hard hitting beats. Sigur Ros's converted studio encapsulates and captures every vibration, while the team behind The Ocean Collective welds them together to create the upcoming dive into the Palaeozoic era



Ebbs and flows of proggy melodies, crushing guitars, swelling strings and powerful vocals match the heavy lyrical themes THE OCEAN has made its signature. 'Phanerozoic I' is now available for preorder, along with meticulously designed merch bundles, something for which they've become known. 'Phanerozoic' is out on November 2nd via Metal Blade Records (CD / digital) and Pelagic Records (vinyl), with merch bundles available for preorder now via MetalBlade.

On September 28th, Anaal Nathrakh will release their 10th full-length, A New Kind Of Horror, via Metal Blade Records. For a preview of the album, a video for the new single, "Obscene as Cancer" (directed by The Widow Brothers / widowbrothers.com), can be viewed here:

When writing about A New Kind Of Horror in the record's liner notes, Anaal Nathrakh vocalist Dave Hunt is succinct in his description: "This is not a happy album, it is bitter, vengeful, sarcastic, sardonic, violent, terrified and horrified, terrifying and horrifying in equal measure. Above all, it is human, and all that that entails. It's as sincere as we could make it." Those exposed to the ten tracks comprising the band's tenth full-length will be unable to deny the truth to these words, for lyrically, musically and sonically it is a punishing listen mired in darkness and seething with raw emotion. With multi-instrumentalist Mick Kenney pushing their distinctive hybrid of symphonic black metal, death metal, industrial and grindcore ever forward, Hunt draws lyrical inspiration primarily from the horrors of the First World War, contemporary politics, and the letters of D.H. Lawrence, creating one of the most powerful, timely and unique releases of 2018. "There's a lot that goes into our albums, of course, but it all comes about as a natural result of who we are, and for 'A New Kind of Horror' we felt early on that it was clearly its own thing. It doesn't have to stand in comparison with anything, because to us it's in a class of its own."

GHOST remixé par Carpenter Brut !De Xavier le 25/08/2018 à 17:53

GHOST, entrez dans la dance avec le Cardinal Copia au son d'un remix signé Carpenter Brut !

« Dance Macabre »Le single aux 15 millions de streams remixé par Carpenter Brut!

Ecoutez le Carpenter Brut Remix ICI
Ecoutez la version album originale ICI


En affichant un cumul de plus de 15 millions de streams à travers le monde « Dance Macabre » est déjà considéré comme l’un des morceaux phares de « Prequelle », le nouvel album du groupe suédois Ghost.


Mais aujourd’hui « Dance Macabre » entre carrément dans une autre dimension à travers un remix, un rien provocateur, réalisé par l’éclectique et mystérieux Carpenter Brut, groupe français de synthwave qui commence à connaitre un joli succès au-delà de nos frontières et qui se produira ce soir (vendredi 24 août) au festival Rock en Seine.


« Je suis un grand fan de Ghost depuis leurs débuts », déclare Carpenter Brut, « quand j'ai eu l'occasion d'assurer leur première partie en 2016, j'étais surexcité. Alors lorsqu’en avril dernier, j'ai reçu un e-mail de Tobias me demandant si je voulais bosser sur un remix de Dance Macabre, j'ai bien entendu tout de suite accepté » et de continuer « J’ai voulu apporter à cette chanson une touche funky/disco, et non pas uniquement me limiter à de la pure synthwave comme on aurait pu l’attendre de ma part. Ce mix rock/disco fait ressortir le côté pop du groupe, un style qui est toujours sous-jacent dans sa musique »


En injectant une énergie infectieuse à cette chanson, ce remix à la sauce Carpenter Brut entraîne Ghost vers les rythmes et les sons de la dance music, cependant l’ensemble reste fidèle au thème global de l'album : la peste noire qui s’est abattue sur l'Europe du XIVe siècle. A l’époque cette terrible maladie s'était propagée rapidement, tuant de nombreuse personnes atteintes par la contagion. Etrangement les auberges, les tavernes et les maisons closes prospéraient comme si la populace savait qu'il n'y aurait peut-être pas de lendemain. Alors les gens dansaient et faisaient la fête jusqu’au bout de la nuit, comme pour célébrer la fin de cette journée à laquelle ils avaient survécus.


Tobias forge, le maître à penser de Ghost, est un fan de longue date de Carpenter Brut, au point qu’il les avait invités à ouvrir pour son groupe en 2016. Depuis qu’il l’a composée, puis enregistrée, Tobias a toujours pensé que « Dance Macabre » était une chanson parfaite pour être remixée, et le choix de Carpenter Brut s’est quasiment imposé de lui-même.


Si aux Etats-Unis le single « Rats » fait actuellement un carton sur les ondes (il est classé n°1 depuis 9 semaines, le meilleur score atteint par un titre aux USA cette année), en France « Dance Macabre » éveille l'attention et flirte régulièrement avec la première place de la playlist Ouï FM, offrant ainsi à Ghost une exposition dans notre pays qu’il avait déjà connu avec les hits « He is » et « Square Hammer ». Un succès radio qui, combiné à un massif soutient de la presse et du web, a permis au groupe de vendre plus de 35 000 exemplaires l’album « Meliora » et de remplir de nombreuses salles à travers l’Hexagone.


Mais, que ça soit dans sa déjà fabuleuse version originale ou à travers ce flamboyant remix, il parait clair que « Dance Macabre » possède tous les atouts pour permettre à Ghost d’accroitre encore sa popularité en France et de convertir un public encore plus large, d’autant que le Cardinal Copia et ses Goules ont encore plus d’un tour (de danse ?) dans leur sac…

VULTURE INDUSTRIES will be touring in support if their latest full-length, 'Stranger Times', which is streaming in full here!

The artwork of ''Stranger Times', which has been created by Costin Chioreanu, can be viewed below.

The metal scene seems mired in stagnation all too often these days. The tenth edition of the great thrash revival, the never-ending race to be more brutal or more technical or more dissonant in death metal, and the rampant nostalgia of an ever-aging scene do not provide the necessary ingredients for progress and out of the box thinking. That is the very reason why rare bands such as VULTURE INDUSTRIES are so important.

The Norwegians' fourth album 'Stranger Times' continues and expands the band's quest to push the limitations of genre and sound. Their nine new tracks are as easily as masterfully spanning a wide range from dark rock to progressive-experimental metal, while keeping their wild roaming within the boundaries of the band's unique and bizarre sonic universe. Yet VULTURE INDUSTRIES manage to harness their bold mix into recognisable structures and meaningful songs throughout that do not shy away from catchiness and, quite importantly, do not fall into the trap of being weird just for the sake of experimentation.

VULTURE INDUSTRIES have emerged from the vibrant rock and metal scene of Bergen, the unofficial capital of Norway's west coast. Mostly associated with black metal, its rich music sphere in fact covers bands from all styles and directions. VULTURE INDUSTRIES drew inspiration from diverse acts such as FAITH NO MORE, MR. BUNGLE, ARCTURUS, DEVIN TOWNSEND, VED BUENS ENDE and THE CULT, when they started out under the DEAD ROSE GARDEN moniker in 1993. After several line-up changes, the new name VULTURE INDUSTRIES was adopted in 2003 and two demo releases quickly followed - 'The Sleeper' (2003) and 'The Enemy Within' (2004).

Having stirred considerable interest in progressive circles, it was time to present their first official recording with the EP 'The Benevolent Pawn' (2005). Consisting of current and former members of SULPHUR, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR, MALICE IN WONDERLAND, and SYRACH, VULTURE INDUSTRIES shouldered their way past the then-inactive ARCTURUS and the drifting ULVER towards the throne of Norwegian dark progressive metal with their two albums 'The Dystopia Journals' (2007) and 'The Malefactor's Bloody Register' (2010). The eclectic band from Bergen was more than ready to engage with avant-garde metal fans worldwide, which their next full-length 'The Tower' aptly proved in 2013. This release saw expanded touring and more performances at prestigious festivals around the globe.

Now VULTURE INDUSTRIES are presenting their most concise and compelling output so far. 'Stranger Times' is made out of hard-won experience and burning passion. Tune in, zone out, and enjoy!

Foscor stream "Les Irreals Versions" in fullDe Xavier le 25/08/2018 à 13:47



FOSCOR stream digital album "Les Irreals Versions" in full!

Catalan atmospheric metal band FOSCOR are now streaming their complete upcoming digital (only) album 'Les Irreals Versions', which will be released on August 24, 2018.



FOSCOR comment: "Our music was never conceived as a simple escaping tool from reality, but as the best way to set an emotional dialogue with the world. 'Les Irreals Versions' reaches the most intimate form to express what once was said with other words, approaching our earthly experience to a higher spiritual level. The album serves as an excuse to dig deeper into our essence, approaching and sharing the moments we once gathered as a group with all of you. We are thrilled to present to you the entire result of our music translation into this new tragic expression, loyal to our emotional music foundations and the aim of transforming all moments to eternal. Common things must acquire a new meaning, and so must these songs… We hope you enjoy them."

'Les Irreals Versions', the title aptly translating to 'The Unreal Versions', can be seen as a continuation of the album 'Les Irreals Visions', released a little more than a year ago. Six tracks, taken from previous albums, have been re-arranged and recorded from zero. FOSCOR introduces different instruments to the compositions, creating a more intimate feel and ambient approach, ultimately taking the music to new boundaries.



Track-list
1. Instants (5:50)
2. Altars (6:26)
3. Encenalls De Mort (7:44)
4. Espectres Al Cau (7:06)
5. Les Irreals Visions (7:15)
6. L.Amor.t (7:47)
Total playing time: 42:08



Catalan atmospheric metal band FOSCOR have never shied away from exploring the lines between reality, poetry and the beyond. With 'Les Irreals Versions', the band seeks to intensify their music and give new meaning to it.

Departing from their black metal roots of the first three records and building on the progressive foundations of 'Those Horrors Wither' (2014), the Catalans found a way to express darkness by using doom infused tempo’s, heavy riffing and adding clean vocals on 'Les Irreals Visions' (2017). On the upcoming digital release, 'Les Irreals Versions', FOSCOR have even pushed beyond that, providing an alternative, yet no less enchanting perspective on their music.

The name FOSCOR translates as "darkness" in their native Catalan tongue, which the band from Barcelona often uses for their lyrics as a distinctive element and strong connection with their cultural reality.

FOSCOR hail from Catalonia, which is still yet largely unwilling part of modern Spain. With Barcelona as its capital, this region has a long artistic tradition with the fin de siècle style of Modernisme - a parallel development to Art Nouveau and Jugendstil among others - forming one of its major achievements. Catalonia has also left an audible mark in the extreme music scene of Spain in recent years.

FOSCOR are attracted to and build upon these foundations, while taking inspiration from the morbid, decadent, and sick reflections on a rapidly changing society that shaped the artistic landscape at the end of the nineteenth century.

ROTTING CHRIST have reached another peak in their long career that now spans over more than three decades. The Greeks have literally stood the test of time. With a steady core line-up and their well-honed live delivery, ROTTING CHRIST are filling concert halls and reap enthusiastic crowd reactions wherever they go. This demonstration of love from their followers is not just driven by nostalgia as the band has managed to evolve and grow, while staying relevant beyond the classics with their highly acclaimed latest albums such as 'Aealo' (2010), 'Κατά τον δαίμονα εαυτού’ (2013), and 'Rituals' (2016).

With more than 30 years, 12 studio albums, a dozen EPs, singles and split releases, as well as more than 1.250 shows under their belt, it is about high time to take a retrospective look at this band's fascinating musical development by picking a select choice of key tracks covering the many facets of ROTTING CHRIST that have sparkled over the years. With such a massive catalogue such an undertaking will always lead to controversy about certain additions as well as omissions from the final list, but the involvement of frontman Sakis Tolis in this extremely difficult task ensures that the result is at least relevant.

ROTTING CHRIST were founded by Sakis Tolis and his brother Themis in the year 1987. Starting out on a basis of death and grind, the Greeks had already embarked on a darker musical journey by the time their debut full-length ‘Thy Mighty Contract’ (1993) was revealed. On the following seven albums covering a ten-year period from 'Non Serviam' (1994) to 'Sanctus Diavolos' (2004), ROTTING CHRIST steadily defined their own distinct style by experimenting with elements from death, heavy, and gothic metal without betraying their black roots. At the same time, the band went from underground heroes to headliner status. With the highly acclaimed ninth album, 'Theogonia' (2007), the Greek stalwarts added an unmistakable native element to their sound, which has remained with them as a signature trademark ever since. Exploring the mythical legacy of cultures around the globe let to ROTTING CHRIST's massively successful latest release, 'Rituals'. With 'Their Greatest Spells', the Greek metal icons musically revisit their exciting legacy and even contribute a brand new track entitled "I Will Not Serve" to connect their past with the present.

Madness reigns! BENIGHTED deliver the radical soundtrack to these savage times.

BENIGHTED were spawned by members from French Death and Black metal bands DISHUMANIZED, DARKNESS FIRE, and OSGILIATH, who joined forces in 1998 for a more brutal, heavy and modern way of expression. When their first self-produced and self-titled full-length hit the streets in 2000, it immediately had a strong impact. This turned a side-project into a main act. A fast-growing fan base was built by a string of acclaimed albums: 'Psychose' (2002), 'Insane Cephalic Production' (2004), 'Identisick' (2006), and 'Icon' (2007) were all enthusiastically received. With their latest full-length 'Necrobreed', the French sidestepped the steadily growing complexity of their previous albums 'Asylum Cave' (2011) and 'Carnivore Sublime' (2014) by recalibrating their sound along their roots. 'Necrobreed' came based on a theme revolving around the abysmal potential of the human psyche.

On the live front, BENIGHTED quickly started to capture audiences with sweat driver performances that bulldozer any resistance mercilessly aside. This allowed the French to climb up the ladder fast and soon came invitations to all major European festivals including Neurotic Death Fest, Hellfest, Wacken, Brutal Assault, Summer Breeze, and Inferno Festival among many more.

After their 20th anniversary, it was time for BENIGHTED to capture the live madness on 'Dogs Always Bite Harder Than Their Master' which not only contains three brand new tracks and the brutal AT THE GATES cover of 'Slaughter Of The Soul', but also live recordings with guest musicians such as Sven Decaluwé (ABORTED), Nikita Kamprad (DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT), Arno (BLACK BOMB A), Niklas Kvarforth (SHINING) and Ben Wright (UFATHOMABLE RUINATION).

'Dogs Always Bite Harder Than Their Master' gives yet another extreme musical voice to the madness lurking within!

CAST THE STONE (Misery Index, ex-Cattle Decapitation) share drum playthrough videoDe Xavier le 25/08/2018 à 00:16

CAST THE STONE (feat. members of Misery Index, ex-Cattle Decapitation and Scour) share drum playthrough video for "A Plague Of Light" via Sick Drummer Magazine

US-based blackened death metallers CAST THE STONE teamed up with Sick Drummer Magazine to present a drum playthrough video for their recently released single "A Plague Of Light". The track comes from "Empyrean Atrophy" EP, which is set to be released next week on August 31st via Agonia Records. The playthrough is available at this link:

http://sickdrummermagazine.com/news/latest-news/jesse-schobel-cast-the-stone-a-plague-of-light-exclusive-drum-videos-part-ii/





CAST THE STONE is Mark Kloeppel (Misery Index, Scour with Phil Anselmo), Derek Engemann (ex-Cattle Decapitation, Scour), Jesse Schobel (Legend, ex-Scour) and vocalist Andrew Huskey. First formations of the band began in 2002, long before its protagonists departed for their better known metal-scene mainstays. While such ties leave a clear mark, CAST THE STONE emerge not as some metal supergroup, but as a project of the original and purest intent of its membership.

Each of CAST THE STONE members is involved in writing music, and each has varying tastes. But they all seem to have one acquired taste in common: an appetite for American and Swedish death metal. On "Empyrean Atrophy", one can distinctly hear sounds similar to Dismember, Grave, At The Gates, and other proponents of the genre. There are also artisan elements one could liken to more dark and progressive Swedish acts such as Opeth, Edge Of Sanity and Dissection. Perhaps this reason alone, Dan Swanö was a clear choice for production (having produced or had been a member of some of the aforementioned bands).

Hybridizing the dark ferocity of Swedish death metal through a lens of American brutality, CAST THE STONE hits a creative stride with "Empyrean Atrophy". Guitarist Mark Kloeppel commented, "The band's sound is a testament to an enduring spirit that’s driven us to return to our most organic influences, merge them together, incorporate disparate elements, and forge our own sound. Each person has a distinct sound unto themselves, so it's really cool how smooth and cohesive this stuff comes across. You can immediately hear how different this is from the other things we've been involved in, yet it's still very true to our individual styles. Our bassist Derek progressively weaves my guitars and Jesse's uber-creative drumming style together in a way that only he can. This is all crowned off by Andy Huskey's crazy death metal vocals which are... well, just listen".



"Empyrean Atrophy" was produced by Dan Swanö (Katatonia, Merciless, Edge Of Sanity) and features cover artwork by Gary Ronaldson of Bite Radius Designs (Primordial, Kreator, Napalm Death). It includes five new, original compositions and a cover of Infestdead's "Jesusatan".

Tracklist:
1. As the Dead Lie
2. The Burning Horizon
3. Standing in the Shadows
4. A Plague of Light
5. Empyrean Atrophy
6. Jesusatan

"Empyrean Atrophy" formats:
- Digipack CD.
- Black LP.
- White LP (Bandcamp exclusive).
- Purple Splatter LP (Agonia Records Webshop exclusive).
- Digital.

Line-up:
Andrew Huskey– vocals.
Mark Kloeppel– guitars.
Derek Engemann– bass.
Jesse Schobel– drums.

ATREYU NewsDe Xavier le 25/08/2018 à 00:08

Nouvel album " In Our Wake". Sortie le 12 octobre prochain sur Search & Destroy/ Spinefarm Records.



"With this music video, we wanted our long time director friend Sean Stiegemeier and have him come up with something completely unlike anything we've done before," states bassist Porter McKnight, offering some insight into the visual. "We wanted to leave the viewer with a feeling of 'What the fuck did I just watch!?' and then play it again to deduce what went down.

"Most of our videos have been story-based or life-based. But with this, we just wanted the subtle thread of humanity’s growth and decline. It starts with water, then earth, nature, city scapes, then slowly decaying humanity. We have a choice as a species to start giving a shit about ourselves and the world around us, and what we choose to make of this life."

Following a two-year tour cycle for 2015's Long Live, Atreyu regrouped in Southern California and started sharing ideas for what would become offering number seven. Ceremoniously, they all agreed it would be the right time to reunite with producer John Feldmann who famously helmed Lead Sails and Paper Anchor.

In Our Wake sees Atreyu once again evolving. The first single and title track hinges on a slow burning, but bombastic percussive buildup before charging ahead with an undeniable chant and fiery fretwork.
"It's a deep one," says singer Alex Varkatzas. "We looked up to Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington, and their deaths were fresh during the writing process. It made us think of what we'll leave in our wake. We have a choice to change the lives of others for the better."

"The album title In Our Wake comes from the idea that everyday we humans have two roads we can go down," furthers McKnight about the deeper meaning rooted within the album. "Do you choose to inspire, uplift, and enhance each others lives? Or do you prefer to belittle, shit talk, and tear down each other down? With each choice made you leave a ripple that reflects across your community, then onto your city, to your nation, and eventually all across the globe. Who do you leave in your wake?"

SHINING News/ Lyric vidéo De Xavier le 24/08/2018 à 23:29



Shining who recently announced their intention to BLOW THE DOORS OFF with new album Animal, have shared a lyric video for the title track alongside a huge run of European dates.

Multi-instrumentalist, vocalist & songwriter, frontman Jørgen Munkeby comments, "while writing these songs we always thought about how we could make sure they would sound awesome in a live setting. Now we finally get to play them there! In club somewhere in Europe, with a sweaty and excited audience screaming along! Can't wait to see you all there!"

With new album Animal set for release on 19th October through Spinefarm, Munkeby is making his most audacious move yet with the former jazz-metal collective.

"I was tired of doing the same thing,” he explains. “I was done with ‘Blackjazz’ and wanted to create something new and exciting. I needed a change. I’m finally at the point where I have nothing to lose and everything to win. We had 360 degrees to play with so we could’ve gone in any direction. This new record is more Muse than Meshuggah, more Ghost than Gojira, and more Biffy Clyro than Burzum!”

From its retina-frying artwork to its relentless stream of memorable refrains, Animal is simply the ultimate 21st century party metal carnival. Entirely saxophone-free yet utterly unmistakable as a Shining release, it’s the Norwegians' most startling record yet.

For title track Animal, Jørgen comments:

"When we wrote Animal, we knew that we would want to announce the album with that song! It's just such a fun and rocking number, and I also can't wait to open our live shows with it! Wolf howl, and GO!"



Although the new album was once again produced by Shining and their long-time associate Sean Beavan (Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle, etc.), esteemed studio guru Kane Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, Halestorm, Papa Roach), son of the legendary Kevin, was brought in to complete the final mix. The results are dazzling, multi-dimensional and almost stupidly exciting.

Animal follows Shining’s ‘International Blackjazz Society’ studio album [2015] – also released on Spinefarm Records. Animal will be out on October 19th worldwide.

Produced by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Queensryche, Whitechapel, etc.), The Outer Ones sees Revocation pushing both the death metal and progressive elements of their signature sound harder than ever. "I knew that I wanted to go in a darker direction, and this is our most death metal album to date," states vocalist/guitarist Dave Davidson. "Sometimes when death metal bands go down the prog route they lose some of that edge, but we wanted to keep the aggression at the forefront of what we do while still pushing our boundaries." Moving away from the societal and historical themes that informed 2016's Great is Our Sin, this time Davidson has immersed himself in the fantastic, evoking one of the great writers of the sci-fi/horror genre. "The title is my ode to H.P. Lovecraft and the entities of pure cosmic horror that rule that universe he created. Since the new music we were writing was so evil and spacey in sections it seemed to be the right title to fit the overall vibe. But while the lyrical content is largely influenced by such writings, in every allegory there is of course some reflection of the real world, so I enjoy writing in a way that could have one overlaying meaning and then another deeper, symbolic meaning as well."

SKYHARBOR RELEASE "DISSENT" VIA REVOLVER MAGAZINE

SUNSHINE DUST OUT SEPTEMBER 7, 2018

PRE ORDERS AVAILABLE NOW




Stream on Spotify

Indian/American progressive metal band SKYHARBOR released a stunning new lyric video for their new single "Dissent" today exclusively, via Revolver Magazine. The band had previously released a music video for "Dim" last month via Alternative Press Magazine. Both songs are available on all streaming services and as iTunes instant grat tracks.

"Dissent is a really interesting track for us," says vocalist Eric Emery. "It’s sort of a throwback to all of our metal influences from our youth blended with the skyharbor sound. It’s a bit of an outlier on the record stylistically, but it has definitely turned into one of our favorite songs."
SKYHARBOR will release Sunshine Dust on September 7, 2018, via Entertainment One (eOne) / Good Fight Music. Keshav adds, "It’s taken almost four years and it’s been a real labor of love, but we’re thrilled to finally get this record out there to our fans. We’re incredibly stoked on these songs and have really dug in deep to explore and represent what we truly feel is the Skyharbor sound."

The all-new LP, Sunshine Dust was, recorded in Australia with renown producer Forrester Savell. Sunshine Dust, the band’s nearly four years in the making third full-length album, delivers on the atmospheric and emotional promise of their earlier material, with breathtaking tectonic shifts between a wall of sound ambiance and groove.
On Sunshine Dust, the immersive wall of sound SKYHARBOR first perfected in the studio environment, while as polished and precise as ever, shines with a new almost analog warmth, born of the kind of collaborative camaraderie that only happens when musicians trust each other enough to experience growth.

This is music filled with empowering inspiration and sweeping passions, a supernatural slice of transcendent sonic indulgence.

SKYHARBOR erode the boundaries between traditional hit making structures and technicality dexterity with grace and poise, employing the gentle force of the changing of the tides, in all of its stealthily bombastic earth shaping might.

Allstar death metal band Siege Of Power reveals details for debut album, 'Warning Blast' launches first single, "The Cold Room"



On September 7th, Metal Blade Records will release Warning Blast, the debut album by multinational allstar death metallers Siege Of Power! For a preview of Warning Blast, head over to: metalblade.com/siegeofpower, where you can watch the video for the first single, "The Cold Room", plus pre-order the album in the following formats:
-- ltd. Digipak-CD w/2 bonus tracks

--180g black vinyl
--cool grey marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies - EU exclusive)
--slate blue-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies - EU exclusive)
--clear smoky white-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies - US exclusive)


Siege Of Power comments: "'The Cold Room' is the first official video from Siege of Power. Just like our audio terror we prefer to keep it simple and straight forward. 'The Cold Room' is also the slowest track on our album alongside with the title track. This song might confuse people about the rest of the album which is totally fine by us since it shows the diversity of our debut. Doom, Death, Thrash and punk, it is all there! In the meantime, we hope you guys and girls enjoy this doomdozer called 'The Cold Room' and stay tuned for more."


Siege Of Power is:
Chris Reifert - Vocals ​(Autopsy, Violation Wound, Abscess, Painted Doll)
Paul Baayens - Guitars ​(Asphyx, ex-Hail of Bullets, Thanatos)
Theo van Eekelen - Bass ​(ex-Hail of Bullets, ex-Houwitser, ex-Grand Supreme Blood Court)
Bob Bagchus - Drums ​(ex-Asphyx, Soulburn, ex-Grand Supreme Blood Court)

No bullshit compromises of any kind whatsoever. That's what Siege Of Power is all about! Siege Of Power started in 2013 as a project without any expectations. Shortly after releasing a split album it was left for dead, buried and almost forgotten until the rotten corpse was exhumed in 2017. This resulted in a no-nonsense extreme metal album mixed with several doomdozers. Influences vary from Carnivore and SOD to Discharge and Amebix, done in their own style.


Warning Blast track-listing

1. Conquest for What?
2. For the Pain
3. Bulldozing Skulls
4. Born into Hate
5. Torture Lab
6. Uglification
7. Trapped and Blinded
8. Diatribe
9. Warning Blast
10. Mushroom Cloud Altar
11. Lost and Insane
12. Bleeding for the Cause
13. Escalation 'til Extermination
14. Privileged Prick
15. Short Fuse
16. Violence in the Air
17. It Will Never Happen
18. The Cold Room

Florida death metallers Monstrosity reveal details for first studio album in 11 years; launch new single, "Cosmic Pandemia"



On September 7th, Metal Blade Records will release The Passage Of Existence, the new studio album by Florida death metal legends Monstrosity! For a preview of The Passage Of Existence, head over to: metalblade.com/monstrosity, where you can stream the first single "Cosmic Pandemia", plus pre-order the album in the following formats:

--ltd. Digipak-CD w/2 bonus tracks
--180g black vinyl
--orange/red marbled vinyl (limited to 500 copies - EU exclusive)
--transp. grey-brown marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies - EU exclusive)
--dusk blue-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies - EU exclusive)
--terracotta-marbled vinyl (limited to 120 copies - ebay exclusive)
--deep violet blue-marbled vinyl (limited to 500 copies - US exclusive)



Monstrosity's Lee Harrison (drums) comments: "First off, I present to you the master piece of masterpieces in the Monstrosity universe. This album requires a certain justice though and I ask you, as the listener, to properly step up to the task. Don't play this recording on a cheap portable radio or your tiny ear buds. This album was built to be played loud on a killer system. Do yourself that favor, at least for the first few times you play it. I know it's so horribly cliché to say 'Play it Loud', but I can honestly say this album is made for that. Listen to it multiple times, too. These songs are going to 'pop' live, too. Can't wait to bring these songs to the stage. I'm curious to see the opinions. The response by the fans to the teaser clip we posted was super positive, so I'll be so glad when the single is released and the years of hard work finally come to fruition. Hope to see you guys on the road soon and blast it!"


Lee Harrison recorded his drum tracks at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida with veteran metal producer Jason Suecof. A week was spent creating rock solid drum tracks. Guitar and bass tracks were handled at Ascension Sound in Tampa with the vocal tracks being recorded at Obituary's "Redneck Studios" in Gibsonton, Florida. The mix was handled by producer Mark Lewis (Megadeth, etc), and the resulting 2018 album, The Passage Of Existence, was born. 12 tracks of masterfully crafted death metal for the modern era from the standard bearers of extreme art. Monstrosity still stand taller than ever, still delivering their brand of state of the art sonic devastation!

HELLFEST 2018, l'acteur Kristian Nairn invité exceptionnel de la 13ème édition !De Xavier le 12/06/2018 à 23:07




Les univers de World of Warcraft et du métal réunis à l’occasion du Hellfest 2018.



La 13ème édition du Hellfest marquera la troisième année de collaboration entre le festival et World of Warcraft, célèbre jeu en ligne édité par Blizzard Entertainment.



Les 22, 23 et 24 juin prochains, le mythique jeu vidéo s’installera à Clisson et aura pour émissaire l’acteur et DJ Kristian Nairn, fan invétéré de World of Warcraft et de metal. Au cœur des dantesques installations du Hellfest et au son de sa prestigieuse programmation (217 groupes **), cet acteur connu par les fans de séries du monde entier sera pleinement dans son élément pour aller à la rencontre des artistes et partager avec eux leurs passions communes pour le jeu vidéo et les riffs d’acier.



En effet, World of Warcraft permettra aux fans de profiter en direct de la retransmission de plusieurs concerts du Hellfest via son compte Twitter, en partenariat avec ARTE Concert. En ouverture de ces concerts qui seront prochainement dévoilés sur le blog World of Warcraft, Kristian Nairn partagera avec la foule sa vision de l’intégration de la culture metal dans World of Warcraft et son expérience personnelle en jeu au travers de vidéos exclusives.



Enfin, Blizzard Entertainment offrira également aux festivaliers l’opportunité de gagner des upgrades VIP de leur pass via l’application officielle Hellfest. Les détails de cette opération seront dévoilés très prochainement. Les fans de metal et de jeu vidéo sont donc invités à suivre de près les réseaux sociaux du Hellfest et de World of Warcraft, à nouveau réunis par la force de la musique !

Michael ROMEO, le guitariste de Symphony X sort enfin un album solo !De Xavier le 02/06/2018 à 20:59


Le premier véritable album solo du guitariste de Symphony X !

Sortie le 27 juillet 2018

Regardez la lyric vidéo de "Black"



Musiciens :
John “JD” DeServio (Black Label Society) : basse
John Macaluso (TNT, Ark, Yngwie Malmsteen...) : batterie
Rick Castellano : chant

Sorti en 1994, "The Dark Chapter", n'a jamais été considéré par Michael Romeo comme un véritable album solo, mais plus comme un assemblage de démos enregistrées en marge de son groupe : Symphony X.
Ce groupe qui, depuis le milieux des années 90, est considérée, à juste titre,
comme une référence en terme du metal progressif et neo-classique.

Aujourd'hui Michael peut enfin sortir son véritable album solo, un disque qui reflète bien sûr sa passion sans limite pour les musiques de films composées par Bernard Hermann ou John Williams, ou des compositeurs classique tel que Gustav Holst ou Igor Stravinsky, mais qui comporte aussi, et c'est plus surprenant, quelques éléments EDM/dubstep...

Track list :
1 - Introduction
2 - Fear The Unknown
3 - Black
4 - F*cking Robots
5 - Djinn
6 - Believe
7 - Differences
8 - War Machine
9 - Oblivion
10- Constellations

ZEAL & ARDORDe Xavier le 28/05/2018 à 23:27


A quelques jours de leur passage au Hellfest découvrez un nouveau titre ! Nouvel album le 8 juin !

ZEAL & ARDOR présente 'Built On Ashes' le troisième extrait de "Stranger Fruit" le nouvel album qui sera disponible le 8 juin prochain


Ecoutez le titre ici :



Déjà dispo sur toutes les plateformes digitales https://lnk.to/Builton


Le 30 mars dernier marquait le retour de Manuel Gagneux et de Zeal & Ardor ! C'est en effet à l'occasion du Vendredi Saint cet énergumène créateur avait décidé de révéler “Gravedigger's Chant” son nouveau single... juste avant Pâques... Cet extrait initial dévoilait enfin les premiers présages de "Stranger Fruit", un nouvel album très attendu... c'est le jour de son passage au Printemps de Bourges, le groupe a lâché un autre titre "Waste" . Ce morceau met en lumière l'autre facette de ‘Stranger Fruit’ où les éléments gospel et soul viennent s'ajouter à du black metal joué sans compromission. Le but de Zeal & Ardor reste toujours de surprendre et le climat qui se ressent tout au long de ce disque.


Depuis vendredi dernier, c'est la chanson "Built On Ashes" que le public peut découvrir. Un titre riche qui reflète à merveille l'ambition de Z&A et explique pourquoi le quotidien anglais The Guardian a dit de ce nouvel album qu'il était : "Extraordinary and brilliant". En fait, "Built On Ashes' est l'ultime morceau du disque. Il se distingue des autres par ses aspects plus sombres qui peuvent sonner comme toutes sortes adieu...


En décidant de mêler du blues, du gospel et de la soul à des musiques radicalement plus extrêmes Gagneux s’est ouvert les portes d’un univers artistique où tout semble possible. Créé par lui seul, telle une œuvre solo, “Devil is Fine”, le premier album de Zeal & Ardor, a généré un intérêt immense autour de cet artiste. Les excellentes critiques qui ont suivi la sortie de ce disque ont alors permis à Zeal & Ardor de se muer en un véritable groupe live qui s'est produit à travers le monde entier.


Après avoir passé des mois éloigné de tout, à travailler sur de nouvelles chansons, Manuel a finalement rejoint le monde de vivants pour entrer en studio avec le producteur Zebo Adam et l’ingénieur du son Kurt Ballou (Converge, Kvelertak, Nails). Cette association rend le son plus vaste et plus lourd tout en restant incontestablement celui de Zeal & Ardor.


La diversité des 16 titres de "Stranger Fruit" encourage l’auditeur à creuser un peu plus profond afin de trouver par lui-même les propres significations de chaque composition. En contraste avec l’album précédent ces chansons sont, tant au niveau des textes que de la musique, délibérément destinées être écouter les unes après les autres. Au fil du disque l’on ressent alors la progression d’une incontestable rage, dont l’objectif premier est pourtant d'unifier, et non de diviser, d'inspirer l'action en opposition directe à l'inertie. Si une sombre mélancolie plane sur l’ensemble, elle est cependant tempérée par une sorte de lueur d’espoir. A premier abord, "Stranger Fruit" semble raconter de petites histoires simples, mais, peu à peu, l'on découvre qu'elles font aussi référence au grimoire de la Goetia, aux croyances Yoruba, ainsi qu’à d'autres obscurs ouvrages de la littérature occulte...


Zeal & Ardor a entamer sa tournée mondiale fin avril, en France au Printemps de Bourges. Bientôt le groupe jouera en Angleterre pour un premier concert en tête d'affiche à Londres avant de rejoindre Donington pour participer au Download Festival. Le 24 juin, ils seront de retour en France pour jouer au Hellfest, puis aux Eurockéennes (8/07) et à Musilac Festival (12/07). Tous ces festivals seront suivis d'une vraie tournée française au mois de décembre :


09/12/2018 - Lille / l'Aéronef

11/12/2018 - Le Havre / Le Tetris

12/12/2018 - Paris / La Cigale

13/12/2018 - Strasbourg / La Laiterie


"Stranger Fruit" sortira le 8 juin 2018 en CD, cassette, double vinyle & digital.
Une édition ”deluxe" vinyle 180g / violet pochette en triptyque sera également disponible pré-commandes : https://lnk.to/Gravedigger

Zeal & Ardor est né dans l'esprit d'un musicien americano/suisse nommé Manuel Gagneux, qui, à la base, tire son inspiration d’une approche alternative de l’histoire, résultant directement de l’association entre deux pensées :

1) la religion chrétienne a été imposée par les américains aux esclaves noirs africains (tout comme cela avait déjà été fait en Norvège des siècles auparavant)

2) dans les années 90, le black métal norvégien s’est répandu partout dans le monde en rébellion face au monothéisme.

Dés lors que ce serait-il passé si les esclaves noirs américains s’étaient rebellés de la même façon ? Quel aurait été le son de ces chants spirituels s’ils avaient été sataniques ? Du black metal tirant son inspiration des champs de coton des états du sud… qui aurait pu imaginer ça un jour ?

Sorti en février 2017 « Devil is Fine », le premier Zeal & Ardor a apporté les premiers éléments de réponse... Créée dans la liberté artistique la totale cette oeuvre avant-gardiste a généré un énorme intérêt partout dans le monde. En France, le groupe s’est produit aux Trans M usicales de Rennes ainsi que dans l‘émission de Canal + « l’Album de la Semaine ». Des radios telles que FIP ou Oui FM ont diffusé plusieurs titres de Z&A. De nombreux articles sont parus dans la presse (Rock Hard, Télérama, Les Inrocks, MyRock…) ainsi que sur le web.

TREMONTI De Xavier le 28/05/2018 à 23:20



Nouveau titre issu du nouvel album A Dying Machine prévu pour le 8 Juin sur Napalm Records.

Pré-commande album ici : http://smarturl.it/ADyingMachine


QUATRIÈME ALBUM A DYING MACHINE À PARAÎTRE VIA NAPALM RECORDS

Annonce de la signature sur Napalm Records : https://youtu.be/qa6tGCWozAY

Précommandes exclusives disponibles: https://www.fret12.com/collections/tremonti

Tremonti, composé de Mark Tremonti (Alter Bridge) au chant et à la guitare, Eric Friedman à la guitare et Garrett Whitlock la batterie, a signé chez Napalm Records, label sur lequel paraîtra le quatrième album du groupe le 8 Juin 2018, A Dying Machine.

Ils viennent de sortir leur nouveau clip “Take You With Me” réalisé par John Deeb, à regarder ici : https://youtu.be/BYwrSAZzXEc

L'album, A Dying Machine, est disponible en pré-commande ici http://smarturl.it/ADyingMachine , dans diverses configurations physiques ainsi que numériquement. Les fans qui pré-commandent numériquement l'album recevront un lien instantané pour télécharger le nouveau single "Take You With Me" et "A Dying Machine", ainsi que 2 autres futurs titres qui sortiront avant le 8 juin. Le nouveau single est également disponible sur tous les services de streaming, y compris Apple Music et Spotify.

A Dying Machine est le premier album conceptuel de Tremonti et la musique s'inspire d'une histoire qui a frappé Mark lors de la dernière tournée d'Alter Bridge. Pendant ce temps, le titre épique "A Dying Machine" est né. L'histoire, qui est en train de devenir une œuvre de fiction complète de Mark Tremonti et John Shirley, se déroule au tournant du prochain siècle où des humains et des êtres artificiels appelés «vaisseaux» tentent de coexister. Tremonti et Shirley travaillent sur la fin du roman, pour le sortir aux côtés de l'album.

Tremonti sera sur la route pour appuyer A Dying Machine. Le groupe jouera à Orlando le 12 mai au Social. Ils sont également confirmés pour jouer le 4 mai au Carolina Rebellion, le 5 mai au Lunatic Luau et joueront leurs grands tubes le 2 mai à Savannah et à Atlanta le 7 mai. Le groupe se rend en Europe à la mi-juin pour sept semaines de tournées qui incluent des dates en première partie de Iron Maiden lors de festivals européens. Dates et billets ici : www.marktremonti.com

Après deux décennies à la pointe de la guitare, une récompense aux GRAMMY®, plus de 40 millions d'unités vendues entre Alter Bridge, Creed et son projet Tremonti, et d'innombrables autres récompenses; Mark Tremonti a une fois de plus atteint un sommet inédit pour 2018. Pour la toute première fois, le guitariste et chanteur a conçu pour son quatrième album A Dying Machine, un concept immersif avec un roman accompagnant l'album, à retouver sur le label Napalm Records.

Depuis son émergence en 2012, lui et ses acolytes - Eric Friedman [guitare, basse] et Garrett Whitlock [batterie] - ont jeté les bases d'une déclaration aussi ambitieuse. Leur premier album All I Was s'est retrouvé dans le Top 5 des albums Billboard Top Hard Rock et dans le Top 30 du Top 200. L'album suivant Cauterize a atteint la première place du hit-parade des albums Top Rock sur iTunes. En 2015, le leader remporte le prix du meilleur guitariste aux Loudwire Music Awards, à peine un an après sa victoire au «Riff Lord» en 2014 au Metal Hammer Golden Gods. Entre les concerts à guichets fermés et les apparitions dans les festivals dans le monde entier, de Rock on the Range à Shiprocked !, en 2016 l'album Dust a permit de maintenir cet élan.
Aujourd'hui, avec A Dying Machine, Tremonti va atteindre de nouveaux sommets, comme jamais encore fait.

Lizzy Borden launches video for new single, "Long May They Haunt Us"




For decades, Lizzy Borden has been one of theatrical rock's top front-men. And on June 15th, Borden will issue his first album in 11 years, My Midnight Things, via Metal Blade Records. The extended layoff between albums has not dulled his desire to rock and shock. "Although we have stayed busy touring all over the world, I missed being a recording artist. I look at the new album as a new beginning, I pushed the restart button on my career," Borden comments.


For a preview of My Midnight Things, head over to Loudwire.com now for the video premiere of "Long May They Haunt Us", which Lizzy Borden proclaims as "the most meaningful song on the 'My Midnight Things' album. It's about those people that are no longer in our lives but we still think about them every single day. They haunt us with more than a memory, a haunt that we hope will never go away." The video (directed by David Brodsky ) can be viewed here

--limited 1st edition Digipak-CD (includes bonus tracks)
--jewelcase-CD
--180g black vinyl

--olive/black marbled vinyl (US exclusive - limited to 300 copies)
--opaque cool gray marbled vinyl (US exclusive - limited to 200 copies)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!



Having signed a new contract with Metal Blade on the strength of three demo tracks, Borden opted to produce My Midnight Things himself, with Joey Scott as co-producer, who also handled all the drumming duties. "I knew what I was going for and had doubts that I could find a producer who would understand that," Borden explains. "My approach is very different than what is happening in today's current sound."

The album was also mixed by Greg Fidelman (Metallica, Black Sabbath, Adele, U2) and mastered by Tom Baker (David Bowie, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Tom Petty).

Borden is planning on hitting the road shortly. "I've already started working on the 'My Midnight Things' show, and I really can't wait to play these songs live," Borden adds. "There are so many talented players out there in the world, I know I will find the right musicians to be on stage with me in my touring band in the new show. And just based on what is being talked about so far, it will be the best show I've ever done. I really do feel a new excitement that I have not felt in years. The best is yet to come."

Atlantis Chronicles' new singerDe Xavier le 08/05/2018 à 18:01


Atlantis Chronicles have announced a new lead vocalist, following the departure of Antoine Bibent a few weeks ago.

The singer is Julien Harp, who previously played in Checkmate and Deep In Hate. The band have issued the following comment :

« Changes in line-up can often be disruptive events, and the departure of Antoine, our lead singer, has been a challenge for us. But with Julien Harp, we have found the perfect partner : both an excellent singer and a beautiful human being. Today, he is officially joining the band. We hope to see you all at our next gigs so you can discover this new line-up. Many heartfelt thanks to the session singers: Julien Nutz Deyres, Tristan Haillot, Sylvain Tdtc, without whom this transition might have been much more difficult for us.

The 3rd album will mark a major new chapter that we can’t wait to share with you!

See you very soon on the road. »

Monte Pittman releases new video playlist for each track on 'Inverted Grasp Of Balance'; announces Los Angeles and New York dates


Photo credit: Travis Colbert

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 (2016), he once again raised the stakes, delivering a riveting collection of full force metal that showcases his continuing evolution. Now, fans can watch a video playlist for each track on the album here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZD1UMQV_tLo&list=PLy8LfIp6j3aKrlpY2mAJQnX3gu4waLTwl


Monte Pittman comments: "We are finally releasing the remainder of videos filmed for 'Inverted Grasp Of Balance'. It started out as an idea Travis Colbert had about filming me as a project when he was with me playing my solo shows. Travis has been documenting content for the app, Bravo Tip Or Pay, that I use to sell tickets and merchandise at my shows. Don Jamieson had an idea for 'Skeleton Key', I had to climb up on a mountain of rocks luckily not getting eaten by a bunch of rattlesnakes for 'Arisen In Broad Daylight', and we filmed 'Panic Attack' in the certified haunted Logan Mansion. Along with the videos that have already been released (featuring Leanna Decker, Billy Sheehan, & Richard Christy), you can now watch the entire album. This completes the cycle for 'Inverted Grasp Of Balance'".



To finish off the Inverted Grasp Of Balance album cycle, Monte Pittman will also play shows in Los Angeles and New York next month, performing The Power Of Three (2014) and Inverted Grasp Of Balance in their entirety. See below for more details.



Monte Pittman live

June 2nd - Los Angeles, CA - Unfriendly Studios (1992 E 20th St Unit 13, Vernon, CA 90058)

* get tickets through the Bravo Tip Or Pay app [search Monte Pittman LA - $25 (or $35 cash at the door)]

Árstíðir release second track of new albumDe Xavier le 08/05/2018 à 17:43


ÁRSTÍÐIR are premiering the second single taken from their forthcoming new album, 'Nivalis', which will be released on June 22nd, 2018.



ÁRSTÍÐIR comment: "As you might have noticed on the first single we released, 'While This Way', we definitely experimented a lot more with drums for this new album, 'Nivalis'. The development of the drums into our sound is even more apparent on this, our second single, 'Entangled'. We had so much fun experimenting with different percussion sounds on this one, compared to our last album 'Hvel', where we primarily used strings to accent the songs. Don’t worry though… you still get that authentic Arstíðir sound complete with strings and vocal harmonization throughout the album. This is just a teaser of what else you can expect. We hope you love it!"



Track-list

1. While This Way (3:11)
2. Lover (2:53)
3. Please Help Me (3:06)
4. Entangled (2:51)
5. Like Snow (3:34)
6. Þar sem enginn fer (sjálfviljugur) (4:00)
7. Circus (3:10)
8. Órói (3:32)
9. Mute (4:38)
10. Conviction (3:38)
11. In the Wake of You (3:35)
12. Wasting Time (3:21)
13. Passion (4:38)

Total playing time: 46:07



ÁRSTÍÐIR redefine their sound and take an evolutionary quantum leap that will catapult the eclectic Icelandic band from a highly praised phenomenon at the fringe straight to the centre of international attention. ÁRSTÍÐIR were never an ugly duckling, but now their musical swan has emerged in its full glorious beauty on 'Nivalis'.

The Icelanders have never easily fit into any stylistic drawer and hence attracted a particular long list of attempts of a musical definition that ranges from indie rock via progressive rock, indie folk, chamber folk and pop, neo-classical to minimalism.

There is some truth in all these categories assigned to ÁRSTÍÐIR, but no single description entirely catches their overall sound entirely. Always something else is appearing that is adding and contradicting the first impression. Although everything said above about the band still remains true, new elements appear on 'Nivalis' that add up to a big change. One of these items can easily be identified as drums playing a much stronger role than it did on previous releases, which is a welcome side-effect of ÁRSTÍÐIR recently supporting label-mates SÓLSTAFIR on their extended European tour. Other changes are harder to specify, yet the Icelanders seem to have turned all those switches into the right direction – and not only due to a brilliant, crystalline, warm, and transparent production that perfectly brings together the dominant acoustic instruments with their electronic counterparts to evoke a fragile melancholy and embracing emotionality.

Those inevitable comparisons with fellow countrymen SIGUR RÓS will most likely not go away with 'Nivalis', although ÁRSTÍÐIR have clearly developed a style very much their own. Yet other parallels drawn about past references such as SIMON & GARFUNKEL or PENTANGLE are bound to make way to fresher and more recent names pointing way past the also previously mentioned RADIOHEAD.

ÁRSTÍÐIR emerged from the burgeoning Icelandic music scene in 2008, when the band's three founding members discovered their mutual love for vocal harmonies despite coming from different genres. Daniel, Gunnar and Ragnar quickly went from playing acoustic cover versions to leaving their own sonic footprint by amalgamating influences taken from different styles into something quite unique, which might tentatively be dubbed "Icelandic independent".

With early lyrical references pointing towards the spectacular nature and scenery of this volcanic island and the strongly contrasting moods of its seasons, the band took the name ÁRSTÍÐIR, which means "seasons" in Icelandic.

At home, the band experienced a fast rise. Only four months after its inception, ÁRSTÍÐIR had risen from performing in a coffee shop in Reykjavik to scoring a number one hit on national radio with the track "Sunday Morning".

The Icelanders published their self-titled debut, 'Árstíðir' in summer 2009, and while their home country was reeling from the market crash, the band's stocks went up. During the air traffic disrupting eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano, ÁRSTÍÐIR embarked on their first international tour. Over the next years, the band stayed continuously on the road and gathered a dedicated fan base in more than 30 countries.

Their second album, 'Svefns Og Vöku Skil' followed in 2011 and, only a year later, the Icelanders won the prestigious Eiserner Eversteiner European Folk Music Award in Germany. While on the road in Germany in 2013, a friend of ÁRSTÍÐIR recorded an impromptu performance of the old Icelandic hymn, "Heyr Himna Smiður" in a train station, which went viral on YouTube and has attracted more than 6 million views to date. Backed by the interest sparked by this global hit, ÁRSTÍÐIR continued their head-lining tours and furthermore supported Swedish band PAIN OF SALVATION and Dutch vocalist Anneke van Giersbergen.

ÁRSTÍÐIR launched a highly successful crowdfunding campaign in 2014 to finance the recording of their third full-length 'Hvel', which translates as "spheres". Following the release, the band embarked on a first US tour that reached from coast to coast. A full collaboration with Anneke van Giersbergen followed in 2016. The 'Verloren Verleden' album contains a collection of re-imagined traditional and classical songs.

Now the Icelanders return with their fourth album. 'Nivalis' offers everything that followers of ÁRSTÍÐIR love, but with this stunning masterpiece the band transcends all limitations created by genre to appeal to any friend of great music!

Les premières info sur le nouvel album ! Découvrez leur nouveau clip !

« PREQUELLE » Le 4ème psaume sacré de GHOST



Nouvel album disponible le 1er juin

Dévorez le clip de « Rats »

http://vevo.ly/LPLI6x

LINKÖPING, SUEDE – 13 avril 2018 - Le groupe suédois Ghost, vainqueur d’un Grammy® Award en 2016, vient d’annoncer la sortie de son 4ème album!

Intitulé « Prequelle » (prononcez prē-KWELL) il sera dans disponible le 1er juin 2018 sur Spinefarm/Loma Vista Recordings (distribution française Caroline Int’l).



L'album sortira sous trois formats principaux :

CD "Mintpak", vinyle & digital.

De plus, une version CD "cristal" limitée, avec un livret
doté d'une couverture 3D lenticulaire, contiendra 2 titres bonus.

Une version "vinyle doré Deluxe" sera présentée sous une pochette épaisse
avec les 2 titres bonus sur un 45 tours + un poster. Enfin trois éditions limitées "vinyle clair marbré" seront dispo en version rouge, noir ou argent.

Pré-commandes lien ici

Différentes éditions limitées et autres bundles sont dispo en exclusivité lien ici

Les fans ont attendu longtemps, certains ne sachant même pas qui se cachait sous les masques de ce groupe a priori anonyme... Finalement c’est Tobias Forge lui-même qui a récemment révélé qu’il était l'homme derrière Ghost. Il n’a échappé à personne que chacune des réalisations du groupe avait de nombreux points communs avec le lancement d’un film. En effet, tel un metteur en scène, Forge a toujours tout supervisé : de l’attribution des rôles de chaque personnage, à l’écriture du scénario, en passant par la conception des vidéos, des costumes, jusqu’à, bien entendu, la composition et l’interprétation de la bande son originale.


A ce stade de la saga Ghost, il est intéressant de noter que le Cardinal Copia a été nommé pour prendre les fonctions de chanteur sur ce nouvel opus. Faites sa connaissance ICI. C’est donc lui qui a eu la charge d’interpréter les textes de ces nouvelles chansons (voir la liste ci-dessous) qui, tour à tour, traitent de la peste, de l'Apocalypse ou de certaines périodes funestes de notre histoire. L'ensemble de ce disque ressemble à une sorte d’instantané du monde dans lequel nous vivons au quotidien, avec des morceaux qui se veulent être autant émotionnels qu’éclairants.

Aujourd’hui Ghost nous invite à partager « Rats », un premier single illustré par une vidéo réalisée par Roboshobo.

« Rats » est désormais disponible en digital via iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon & Google Play

« Prequelle » fait suite à « Meliora », et son EP « Popestar », deux disques qui ont permis à Ghost d’entrer au Panthéon des groupes rock et de gagner un Grammy®. Si aux États-Unis, « Meliora » a connu un succès phénoménal (Top 10 dans les charts du Billboard et plus de 250 000 albums vendus), la France n’est pas en reste. Chez nous, le groupe s’est produit dans l’émission de Canal + l’Album de la Semaine et a réalisé une Deezer Session de toute beauté. On a retrouvé Ghost en couverture de nombreux magazines, alors que le titre « He is » a été n°1 sur Oui FM, ce qui a d'ailleurs permis au groupe de remporter un Rock Award attribué par les auditeurs de la station. Ici « Meliora » approche des 40 000 exemplaires vendus. De plus, tous les concerts des Suédois dans notre pays ont affiché complet en un temps record. Le point d’orgue de cette tournée étant sans aucun doute le passage de Ghost parmi les têtes d’affiche du Hellfest 2016, ainsi qu'un fabuleux concert final, archi « sold out », à l’Olympia de Paris en avril 2017.

Après le premier chapitre d’une longue tournée américaine, le Cardinal Copia et ses goules seront d’ailleurs bientôt de retour en France pour deux festivals : le 15 juin au Download Paris à Brétigny sur Orge (B.A. 217), puis le 5 août à la "Hard Rock Session" de La Foire aux Vins de Colmar.

« PREQUELLE » liste des titres :
1. Ashes
2. Rats
3. Faith
4. See the Light
5. Miasma
6. Dance Macabre
7. Pro Memoria
8. Witch Image
9. Helvetesfonster
10. Life Eternal

Epic melodic death metallers Nothgard sign to Metal Blade Records



Photo credit: Richter Photoart



Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the addition of epic melodic death metallers Nothgard from Germany to its roster! The Bavarian quartet has signed a multiple album deal with Metal Blade and is right now in the middle of recording their tentative new album, to be released during the second half of 2018!

Comments Nothgard singer/guitarist Dom R. Crey: "We are really happy to announce the signing with the renowned label Metal Blade Records. For years we have had an eye on the countless and fantastic releases Metal Blade has launched. Eventually we can call ourselves part of this family, something that makes us really proud. We are looking forward to a great collaboration and cannot wait to usher into a new era of Nothgard."

Dom is also presenting us an outlook on the upcoming new Nothgard album: "This exciting chapter will be initiated by a new studio album! In the history of the band we have never worked harder on an album. And to be honest we never had a clearer view on our approach of composing and on our sound. We listened to both, our fans and ourselves. We have clearly analyzed our strength and how to transfer this awareness to our material. Right now tons of work are still laying ahead of us and in the end our fans will judge the result. But let me tell you: As a band we are more than happy about the outcome so far and can't wait to present it to the rest of the World!"


Founded in 2008 by singer and lead guitarist Dom R. Crey, Nothgard dragged along the winning ways since their debut album, Warhorns Of Midgard, from 2011. The high technical quality of their guitar work and the epic orchestration of their melodic death metal is exciting to fans and critics alike. In 2014, the band released another epic milestone of deadly metal, memorable melodies and influences from both neo-classical and folk music called Age Of Pandora. After the release, Nothgard finally signed to Noise Art Records who released the band's latest album, The Sinner's Sake, their most serious approach yet to enter the melodic death metal throne. On The Sinner's Sake, deadly riffs meet playful, catchy lead guitars, while the epic orchestration arranges for a cinematic atmosphere that will bring goosebumps to your skin! Completed by Dom R. Crey's raw vocals, Nothgard's sound is both stormy-spectacular and full of a sublime atmosphere. With The Sinner's Sake, Nothgard set off into the most spectacular chapter in the band's history so far. And the best is yet to come!

Nothgard line-up:
Dom R. Crey - Vocals, Lead Guitar, Studio Keyboards
Skaahl - Guitars
Nico Kolja - Bass
Felix Indra - Drums

Once again building upon their signature sound, the follow up to 2014's Where Greater Men Have Fallen is a more raw, "old school sounding" record than its predecessor. Hitting home with what vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga describes as "a direct energy" and wielding an urgency that is undeniable, the Irish quintet once again effortlessly blend elements of tragedy and might like no one else. Likewise, the evolution in their sound continues to be organic and unforced, ensuring that Exile Amongst The Ruins is essential listening for both their long term faithful and those only now drawn into their world.

Keyboardist Vikram Shankar joins progressive metal band Redemption



Keyboardist Vikram Shankar has joined progressive metal band Redemption. Nick van Dyk - the band's guitarist and songwriter, who has also played the majority of keyboards on Redemption's seven studio albums - comments: "We haven't had a dedicated keyboard player since before 2011's 'This Mortal Coil'. We were very happy and fortunate to have had Greg Hosharian in the band for some time, but when Greg left to focus on composing and conducting classical music, we decided to continue without replacing him and I returned to playing keys in addition to guitar. I'm comfortable enough handling things, but at the same time, from a performance and also from a compositional standpoint, it's always been in the back of my mind that having a dedicated keyboardist allows us to do more, sound better, and grow."


Van Dyk continues: "Almost as soon as Tom [Englund, vocals] joined Redemption, he introduced me to Vikram by way of Vik’s YouTube channel, where Vik showcases both original compositions as well as stunning arrangements of some great progressive metal songs. I was utterly floored. This is a guy who has perfect pitch, tremendous feeling to his playing, and is absolutely a virtuoso - I mean he literally plays blindfolded to perfect his technique. I've never seen anything like it. Then we spent some time together, both one on one and then with the rest of Redemption, and learned he’s a terrific guy as well as a terrific musician. He came out to LA for a few days and spent some time adding some parts to our otherwise-finished upcoming release, Long Night's Journey into Day, and it was evident that not only does he have technique and feel for miles to enhance our musicianship, but he and I share a similar compositional sensibility. We hear things the same way, plus Vikram adds fresh ideas and his tremendous talent as an arranger and writer. I can't wait to involve him more in songwriting for future material, and we are all thrilled to have him join us on stage and in the studio. He's an absolutely stunning talent."


"I'm honored to have the opportunity to play alongside the talented folks in Redemption!" enthused Vikram. "The guys are wonderful musicians and wonderful people, and I can't thank them enough for welcoming me into the fold as they have. Can't wait to see and play for all the Redemption fans at Progpower USA and elsewhere, and for the future of our music and collaboration!"

Already confirmed to headline ProgPower USA 2018, Redemption - featuring Tom Englund (vocals; Evergrey), Nick van Dyk (guitars and keyboards), Sean Andrews (bass), Chris Quirarte (drums), Vikram Shankar (keyboards) - will release their seventh full-length album, Long Night's Journey into Day, this summer via Metal Blade Records. The first to be produced with Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Primal Fear, Amaranthe, Doro, etc.), Long Night's Journey into Day also features guest guitarists Chris Poland (Megadeth, OHM) and Simone Mularoni (DGM). Stay tuned for more Redemption news coming soon!

ZEAL & ARDORDe Xavier le 29/03/2018 à 23:06

A l'occasion du Vendredi Saint ZEAL & ARDOR présente 'GRAVEDIGGER'S CHANT'

le 1er single extrait de son nouvel album


Découvrez les premiers détails de ce second disque, ainsi que les dates de la tournée, dont 4 festivals en France !


Imaginez la scène : une soirée de fin d'été, pieds nus, au son du chant des grillons, vous regardez la danse des peupliers qui se balancent doucement dans le vent, quand soudain vous frôlez l’évanouissement lorsqu'une puanteur immonde s'empare de vos narines…

Pas de doute l’énergumène créateur Manuel Gagneux est de retour avec Zeal & Ardor ! Intitulé “Gravedigger's Chant” son nouveau single sera disponible le vendredi 30 mars, juste avant Pâques, le jour du Vendredi Saint... Ce extrait initial dévoile les premiers présages de "Stranger Fruit", un nouvel album très attendu...



"Bring the dead body down"... Porté par ce refrain obsédant, "Gravedigger's Chant" mène l’auditeur vers l’ultime voyage d’un quidam. "The gravedigger's chant est entonné par des gens qui vont déposer un corps pour son ultime repos. Ils ne se soucient pas d’où il vient, mais ils savent ce qu'il a fait et qui il a aimé... Ils savent que le même sort les attend... ils chantent, à sa place, puisque cette dépouille a rendu son dernier souffle... expiré sa dernière note…” indique Manuel au sujet de cette chanson et d'ajouter en ce qui concerne la vidéo qui l'illustre « L’intention de ce mini film est de faire découvrir ce titre pour qu’il devienne ensuite obsession … A travers ce clip l‘on voit des personnes se retrouvent dans des situations qu’elles n’ont pas choisies, des moments où les choses leur échappent… ici les outils deviennent des armes, les armes se transforment en outils… »



En décidant de mêler du blues, du gospel et de la soul à des musiques radicalement plus extrêmes Gagneux s’est ouvert les portes d’un univers artistique où tout semble possible. Créé par lui seul, telle une œuvre solo, “Devil is Fine”, le premier album de Zeal & Ardor, a généré un intérêt immense autour de cet artiste. Les excellentes critiques qui ont suivi la sortie de ce disque ont alors permis à Zeal & Ardor de se muer en un véritable groupe live qui s'est produit à travers le monde entier.


Après avoir passé des mois éloigné de tout, à travailler sur de nouvelles chansons, Manuel a finalement rejoint le monde de vivants pour entrer en studio avec le producteur Zebo Adam et l’ingénieur du son Kurt Ballou (Converge, Kvelertak, Nails). Cette association rend le son plus vaste et plus lourd tout en restant incontestablement celui de Zeal & Ardor.


La diversité des 16 titres de "Stranger Fruit" encourage l’auditeur à creuser un peu plus profond afin de trouver par lui-même les propres significations de chaque composition. En contraste avec l’album précédent ces chansons sont, tant au niveau des textes que de la musique, délibérément destinées être écouter les unes après les autres. Au fil du disque l’on ressent alors la progression d’une incontestable rage, dont l’objectif premier est pourtant d'unifier, et non de diviser, d'inspirer l'action en opposition directe à l'inertie. Si une sombre mélancolie plane sur l’ensemble, elle est cependant tempérée par une sorte de lueur d’espoir. A premier abord, "Stranger Fruit" semble raconter de petites histoires simples, mais, peu à peu, l'on découvre qu'elles font aussi référence au grimoire de la Goetia, aux croyances Yoruba, ainsi qu’à d'autres obscurs ouvrages de la littérature occulte...




"Stranger Fruit" sortira le 8 juin 2018 en CD, cassette, double vinyle & digital.

Zeal & Ardor est né dans l'esprit d'un musicien americano/suisse nommé Manuel Gagneux, qui, à la base, tire son inspiration d’une approche alternative de l’histoire, résultant directement de l’association entre deux pensées :

1) la religion chrétienne a été imposée par les américains aux esclaves noirs africains (tout comme cela avait déjà été fait en Norvège des siècles auparavant)

2) dans les années 90, le black métal norvégien s’est répandu partout dans le monde en rébellion face au monothéisme.

Dés lors que ce serait-il passé si les esclaves noirs américains s’étaient rebellés de la même façon ? Quel aurait été le son de ces chants spirituels s’ils avaient été sataniques ? Du black metal tirant son inspiration des champs de coton des états du sud… qui aurait pu imaginer ça un jour ?

Sorti en février 2017 « Devil is Fine », le premier Zeal & Ardor a apporté les premiers éléments de réponse... Créée dans la liberté artistique la totale cette oeuvre avant-gardiste a généré un énorme intérêt partout dans le monde. En France, le groupe s’est produit aux Trans M usicales de Rennes ainsi que dans l‘émission de Canal + « l’Album de la Semaine ». Des radios telles que FIP ou Oui FM ont diffusé plusieurs titres de Z&A. De nombreux articles sont parus dans la presse (Rock Hard, Télérama, Les Inrocks, MyRock…) ainsi que sur le web.

Nightmarer premiere "Death/Swansong"De Xavier le 04/03/2018 à 12:38

NIGHTMARER are now premiering the third sinister song taken from their forthcoming debut full-length, 'Cacophony of Terror', which is scheduled for release on March 23rd, 2018.

To be more precise, the stream actually includes two album tracks, "Death" and "Swansong", which the band views as one inseparable unit. Both pieces are therefore presented here.



NIGHTMARER guitarist Simon Hawemann comments: "Our track 'Death' marks the inevitable end of 'Cacophony of Terror' – it is the final stage of a battle that was never meant to be won. My inspiration for this song was all too real: I had to witness a person close to me decease over the course of several days. The riffs and sounds in 'Death' reflect the heavy breathing, the tortured moans, and the spasms of a dying human being – sights and sounds that are burned into my memory forever. This experience served as a morbidly twisted foundation to give death itself an appropriate soundtrack. Once it's all over, 'Death' seamlessly makes the transitions into 'Swansong', which offers nothing else than just the relief of not having to fight any longer. One could not exist without the other, so we're premiering both tracks merged into one today. We are thrilled to have joined forces with Alan Dubin (KHANATE/GNAW), who lent his terrifying voice to 'Death'. His piercing screams serve as the perfect personification of the demon that lurks in the plagued mind of the album's protagonist. Without further ado, embrace death!"

NIGHTMARER have previously released the cover-art and album details of 'Cacophony of Terror', which can be viewed below.



Track-list
1. The Descent (1:36)
2. Stahlwald (3:31)
3. Skinner (4:38)
4. Bleach (3:59)
5. Cave Digger (3:25)
6. Fetisch (4:46)
7. Tidal Waves of Terror (3:23)
8. Ceremony of Control (4:48)
9. Death (4:52)
10. Swansong (1:27)
Total playing time: 35:23



Chaos comes crashing in waves. Patterns emerge out of swirling energy. Darkness coalesces out of fragments into bizarre forms and strange angled shapes. What reads like a list of entries into H.P. Lovecraft's dictionary of horrors is the nightmarish musical vision offered by NIGHTMARER on their debut album, 'Cacophony of Terror'.

Seemingly out of nowhere, NIGHTMARER hit the extreme metal underground with their first EP, 'Chasm' in early 2016. This furious whirlwind of low end dissonance, devastating heaviness and majestic walls of sound took the scene by storm and the first 10" vinyl pressing almost sold out while still on pre-order.

Conceived in 2014 by former members of bands such as GIGAN, THE OCEAN and WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH, this international trio derives only the most extreme elements of their previous musical outlets and takes those into another hellish dimension.

Carving their distinctly personal and unique path into the dark matter that DEATHSPELL OMEGA, DODECAHEDRON, and ULSECT have ventured to explore, NIGHTMARER are now set to release one of the darkest and crushing albums of 2018. Enter this 'Cacophony of Terror' in search of extreme sonic pleasures at your own peril!

Chaostar premiere second track of forthcoming new albumDe Xavier le 20/02/2018 à 23:23

CHAOSTAR release second track of new full-length


CHAOSTAR are streaming the second single of their forthcoming album, 'The Undivided Light'. The Greek avant-garde explorers will release their fascinating fifth full-length on March 23rd, 2018.

The complex track, "Tazama Jua" is now premiering here:




CHAOSTAR previously revealed artwork and album details of 'The Undivided Light', which can be viewed below.



Track-list
1. Tazama Jua (3:48)
2. Blutbad (4:25)
3. Stones and Dust (4:59)
4. The Undivided Light (5:11)
5. Mέμνησο (6:15)
6. Silent Yard (10:51)
7. Ying & Yang (7:09)
Total playing time: 42:38



'The Undivided Light' comes as an invitation to a fascinating musical journey around the globe, which is equally true for space as well as time. CHAOSTAR is far more than just a side-project of SEPTICFLESH guitarist Christos Antoniou.

CHAOSTAR was conceived out of Christos' longing to create music that reflects more on his aspect as an academy trained composer and go beyond the possibilities that his orchestral arrangements for SEPTICFLESH offer. After all, the guitarist finished his studies of classical composition in London with honours and distinction.

When SEPTICFLESH released their single, "The Eldest Cosmonaut" in 1998, the Greek band took a step towards classical music, which in turn inspired Christos to create CHAOSTAR to pursue this course even further.

Out of a timeless confrontation of different sounds and styles rose an avant-garde concept for emotional music to which vocalist Natalie Rassoulis added a feminine voice. After a first statement of intent via a demo entitled 'The Underworld' in 2000, CHAOSTAR released the albums 'Chaostar' (2000), 'Threnody' (2001), and 'The Scarlet Queen' (2004), as well as the 'Underworld' compilation in 2007.

After a self-imposed hiatus of both CHAOSTAR and SEPTICFLESH, Christos decided to revive his project as well when the latter reunited. The former returned with their fourth full-length, which was based on a Greek word roughly translating as "sin". 'Anomima' featured the celestial vocals of new singer Androniki Skoula, who also contributed most of the lyrics.

'Anomima' brilliantly combined rich, classical orchestration with lush soundscapes and modern textures, and even some elements of extreme music. CHAOSTAR easily adopted a global musical language that induced the listener into a dreamlike trance with geographically unchained sounds.

With the 'The Undivided Light', CHAOSTAR take their experimentation another step further. Classic orchestration, traditional instruments, electronica, rock, and more are deconstructed by Christos only to be reassembled into something fresh and exciting. 'The Undivided Light' gives new meaning to the term world music.

Rotten Sound reveal first track and details of forthcoming new EP



ROTTEN SOUND are unleashing the first crushing track taken from their forthcoming new EP, 'Suffer to Abuse' - not to be confused with the band's previous album 'Abuse to Suffer'. The EP will hit stores on April 13th, 2018.

The release dates coincides with the start of ROTTEN SOUND's European tour. Please find all currently confirmed dates in Asia and Europe at the bottom and contact Season of Mist for interview requests.

The Finnish grindcore stalwards are now streaming "Harvester of Boredom"



Vocalist Keijo Niinimaa comments: "Our new track 'Harvester of Boredom' is the first song created for this release: Sami's riffs and the lyrics are about a drug related harvesting in not-so-good conditions. This has nothing to do with Metallica - except for the nodding tribute in the title - just in case someone mistakenly thought that we wanted to comment on their efforts."

ROTTEN SOUND are furthermore releasing the artwork of 'Suffer to Abuse', which has been created by Thomas Boutet at Mush Design and can be viewed together with the album details below.



Track-list
1. Privileged (1:25)
2. The Misfit (1:53)
3. Stressed Mess (2:05)
4. Harvester of Boredom (2:01)
5. One Hit Wonder (1:19)
6. Nutrition (2:23)
7. Slaves of Lust (0:51)
Total playing time: 9:52



ROTTEN SOUND have firmly established themselves as one of the leading acts of the grindcore scene. Expertly wielding the fierce brutality and massive aggression of their genre, the Finns add intelligent songwriting, effective arrangements, and musical proficiency as well as subtle death metal elements to their sound.

Their forthcoming new EP 'Suffer to Abuse', which is not to be confused with their latest full-length album, 'Abuse to Suffer' (2016), embodies those aforementioned virtues to the point. The EP delivers seven short sharp chops that hit home perfectly.

ROTTEN SOUND was conceived in the city of Vaasa, Finland by guitarist Mika Aalto in 1993, who was soon joined by vocalist and word-smith Keijo Niinimaa. The duo still remains in place, while the original members in all other positions have been replaced several times until today.

The Finns can field an impressive catalogue of seven highly acclaimed studio albums, now eight EPs, three split singles, a single, and a live DVD. Furthermore, ROTTEN SOUND have already conquered the stages of all major metal and hardcore oriented festivals and also toured in regular intervals alongside such renowned acts as MALEVOLENT CREATION, PHOBIA, DISFEAR CARCASS, MUNICIPAL WASTE, EXHUMED, NAPALM DEATH, and PIG DESTROYER – among many others.

With 'Suffer to Abuse', ROTTEN SOUND are gearing up their musical juggernaut just in time before crushing stages all over Asia and Europe this spring. Hold on tight and enjoy the bliss of this heavily whirling grind-tornado!

Visigoth lands on international charts with new album, 'Conqueror's Oath'



Visigoth recently released their new album, Conqueror's Oath, via Metal Blade Records; for their efforts, the band has now entered the international charts! See below for all positions:
#14 Top New Artist Albums (USA)

#16 Current Hard Music Albums (USA)

#72 Top New Artist Albums Consumption (USA)

#138 Current Digital Albums (USA)

#171 Top Current Albums (USA)



#86 Top 100 Albums (Germany)

To preview and purchase Conqueror's Oath, please visit : http://www.metalblade.com/visigoth/



Standing in staunch opposition to any presumptuous notion of "reinventing the wheel" or "redefining the genre", Visigoth instead dedicates themselves to worshipping at the ageless altars of heavy metal with a singular focus on writing music inspired by their favorite records. Whether whipped into a frenzy ignited by classic USPM or NWOBHM anthems, or pensively meditating on traditional epic heavy metal or weighty doom-inspired moments, these Salt City hessians wear their influences proudly on their sleeves. With their new 2018 long-player Conqueror's Oath, Visigoth stays true to the title and conquers the sophomore slump blues with 8 iron-forged anthems of pure metal magick guaranteed to satiate the hunger of the rock'n'roll hordes! Returning to the depths of the Boar's Nest in their hometown of Salt Lake City to record once again with engineer extraordinaire Andy Patterson (Subrosa, Deathblow, Dreadnought, et al), Conqueror's Oath was hammerforged in a whirlwind month of mayhem and mastered by Dave Otero of Flatline Audio (Satan's Host, Nightbringer, Khemmis, et al). Immortalized by breathtaking cover art created by none other than underground album art legend Kris Verwimp (whose work has graced records by Absu, Bewitched, Desaster, Horna, Moonsorrow, Skullview, Arkona, and many, many more) in proper swords-and-sorcery fashion, Conqueror's Oath stands tall on the field of battle, serving as a gauntleted fist in the face of non-believers. Prepare for the onslaught of Salt City Steel!

Primordial releases video for new single, "To Hell Or The Hangman"



Irish Pagan Metal Gods Primordial will release their new album, Exile Amongst The Ruins, March 30th through Metal Blade Records. Teaming with producer Ola Ersfjord, who worked on Primordial's 2016 live album, Gods To The Godless, the record was tracked at Dublin's Camelot Studios, located adjacent to their rehearsal room.

Primordial has now released the 2nd single from the album. To watch the video for "To Hell or the Hangman" (directed by Costin Chioreanu)



Comments Primordial singer A.A. Nemtheanga: "In 1493 Walter Lynch was hanged by his own father James Lynch, Mayor of Galwayon on the West coast of Ireland for the murder of a young Spanish noblemen who was visiting the family home. He had fallen in love with a young woman by the name of Agnes in the Lynch of household and in a fit of jealous rage one night Walter took the young Spaniard's life. The story goes that an angry 'lynch mob' took to the streets and barred the way to the usual execution spot so James took his son Walter and hung him with his bare hands from the open window into the street...He was lynched from the hanging sill. 'To Hell or the Hangman' is this story through Walter's eyes, a tale of unrequited love with a murderous end. Enough drama for you? A curious and strange song for single number two from the new album, dark romanticism! so get on the dancefloor..."

For another preview of Exile Amongst The Ruins, the first single "Stolen Years" can be streamed at: metalblade.com/primordial - where the record can be pre-ordered in the following formats:

--ltd. 1st ed. Digibook-CD with bonus-CD

--tan clear vinyl (US exclusive - limited to 200 copies)



Once again building upon their signature sound, the follow up to 2014's Where Greater Men Have Fallen is a more raw, "old school sounding" record than its predecessor. Hitting home with what vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga describes as "a direct energy" and wielding an urgency that is undeniable, the Irish quintet once again effortlessly blend elements of tragedy and might like no one else. Likewise, the evolution in their sound continues to be organic and unforced, ensuring that Exile Amongst The Ruins is essential listening for both their long term faithful and those only now drawn into their world.

Lofofora dévoile un nouveau clip !De Xavier le 12/02/2018 à 00:19

Premier titre de l'album acoustique de Lofofora : Les anges



Peu de groupes auront marqué aussi durablement et fortement la scène metal française que Lofofora. Voici plus d'un quart de siècle que son chanteur Reuno, éloquent « Charisman », frappe sous la peau, martèle les tempes, marque le tempo de ses textes affûtés pointant les travers d'une société malade : le capitalisme sauvage, le racisme, les mass-média, l'exclusion, la bêtise sous toutes ses formes sont martelés sans relâche au fil des neuf albums d'une formation au son puissant.

Theatrical rockers WARD XVI release new single / videoDe Xavier le 12/02/2018 à 00:02

Theatrical rockers WARD XVI have released their new single / video for 'Cry of the Siren'.





The Preston-based electro rockers are well known for their elaborate live appearance and characterisations. It is rare for a rock band to include an accordionist and even rarer to pull it off, but it is a feat WARD XVI manage. Bearing comparisons with Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper, The Skintz, Stolen Babies and more, WARD XVI have already played Bloodstock Open Air, and alongside William Control and Uli Jon Roth.

BLACK STONE CHERRY, nouvel album le 20 avril !De Xavier le 08/02/2018 à 21:43



« Family Tree » NOUVEL ALBUM SORTIE LE 20 AVRIL 2018

1er extrait « Burnin' » disponible demain !

Pré-commandes (CD & vinyle) : https://black-stone-cherry-eu.myshopify.com/

« Family Tree » de BLACK STONE CHERRY sortira le 20 avril prochain sur Mascot Records (distribution Wagram Music), ce 6ème album studio fait suite à « Kentucky » (2016) qui s’était classé n°5 des charts en Angleterre pays où le groupe américain connait un succès phénoménale.

Comme pour son disque précédent le quatuor a décidé de faire les choses « à sa manière ». Ils sont donc retournés à dans la p'tite vile de Glasgow, KY, au Barrick Recording, là même où ils avaient enregistré leur tout premier album et « Kentucky ». Mais cette fois les musiciens ont poussé les choses un peu plus loin en s’auto-produisant. De plus, afin de préserver la spontanéité et la chaleur de sa musique, le groupe n’a pas souhaité « sur-répéter » ses nouvelles compos en tentant souvent de les mettre en boite directement, alors que le chanteur/guitariste Chris Robertson s’est chargé lui-même du mixage.

« Family Tree » présente 13 titres de « Southern American rock ‘n roll », résultats d’un travail collectif qui reflète les influences de chacun des membres. La présence de deux invités s’inscrit parfaitement dans le concept familiale si cher à BSC, puisque le fils de Chris, âgé de 5 ans, participe au chœurs de « You Got The Blues », alors que Warren Haynes (Allman Bros/Gov’t Mule) a offert sa voix et sa guitare sur « Dancing In The Rain ». Le groupe a rencontré Warren pour la première fois il y a 17 ans à l’occasion de la signature de son premier contrat à New-York.

La famille a toujours compté dans la vie de BLACK STONE CHERRY. On se souvient que le père et l’oncle du batteur John Fred Young sont les fondateurs du groupe de country rock The Kentucky HeadHunters. Les membres du groupe Jon Fred, Chris Robertson (guitare), Ben Wells (guitare) et Jon Lawhon (basse) sont des potes d’école qui ont grandi dans le local de répet des Headhunters, bâtit sur les terres de la ferme de la famille Young. C’est là, entre ces 4 murs de bois couverts de posters de Cream, Led Zeppelin, Uriah Heep, des Stones, Montrose et des Faces que ces quatre gamins ont fait leurs premières armes et ont commencé à construire ce qui allait devenir BLACK STONE CHERRY…


Liste des titres :
Bad Habit
Burnin’
New Kinda Feelin
Carry Me On Down The Road
My Last Breath
Southern Fried Friday Night
Dancin’ In The Rain (featuring Warren Haynes)
Ain’t Nobody
James Brown
You Got The Blues
I Need A Woman
Get Me Over You
Family Tree


Samedi 9 juin BLACK STONE CHERRY sera la seconde tête d’affiche du Download Festival en Angleterre où ils joueront juste avant Guns n’ Roses. Pas étonnant lorsque l’on sait que ces dernières années les concerts du groupe en Grande-Bretagne ont attiré une moyenne de 12 000 spectateurs par soir !

Le groupe se produira en France fin 2018, la date de son concert parisien sera annoncée sous peu.

THE CROWN NewsDe Xavier le 09/01/2018 à 22:49


The Crown announces new album, 'Cobra Speed Venom'; launches video for "Iron Crown"



Swedish death metal legends The Crown have announced their new album, Cobra Speed Venom, for a March 16th release through Metal Blade Records. Produced together with Fredrik Nordstrom at Studio Fredman, the record promises to be one of the biggest surprises of the year. A return to death metal speed and darkness in full glory!



The Crown comments: "We are really looking forward to finally be able to show our fans how damn good this band can be when the circumstances are right. With that I mean to be able to do an album the way we want to do it: creating as a band, rehearsing as a band, recording as a band. You will hear a band performing here, with fierce energy and hunger!"


To watch the video for the first single, "Iron Crown", please visit : http://metalblade.com/thecrown


where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:

--ltd. first edition Digipak-CD with 2 exclusive bonus tracks

--180g black vinyl

--viole(n)t blue marbled vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 300 copies)

--pale lilac marbled vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 200 copies)

--purple red splattered vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 100 copies)

--dusk blue splattered vinyl (US exclusive - limited to 400 copies)

--white/purple splattered vinyl (US exclusive - limited to 100 copies)

--limited boxset [including ltd. edition Digipak-CD/exclusive 7" with both bonus tracks/exclusively colored album vinyl (opaque rose/black marbled)/exclusive back patch/hand signed photo card - limited to 300 copies]

* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!



With their motivation at an all-time high, The Crown spent most of 2017 intensely rehearsing 13 new songs. They eventually entered the classic Studio Fredman with Fredrik Nordström to record what would become their new album, Cobra Speed Venom. The sound is massive, brutal and a real punch in the face. Extreme speed and aggression mixed with classic heavy metal and rock n' roll, which really shows that The Crown has no boundaries. The apocalyptic theme of the lyrics and music also fits perfectly with the outstanding artwork of Christian Sloan Hall.

After 27 years, the band is still motivated to create a classic piece of art - and together with Metal Blade Records once again, the vision is real.

1. Destroyed By Madness

2. Iron Crown

3. In the Name of Death

Hooded Menace release third new songDe Xavier le 09/01/2018 à 22:44



HOODED MENACE are premiering the third dark masterpiece taken from their forthcoming new album, 'Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed', which will hit the shops on January 26th, 2018.



HOODED MENACE mastermind Lasse Pyykkö comments: "Once all the songs for 'Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed' were written, it became clear to us that 'Sempiternal Grotesqueries' was going to be the album's opening track. Unlike on our previous records, there's no intro track on the new album, because we figured that the doomy and atmospheric riff, which kicks off 'Sempiternal Grotesqueries' (and also closes the song) would work just fine as an intro to the album. It sets the mood, and as soon as you have lit the black candles, the song grows into a gripping death doom whirlwind and you're in for a ride with the Blind Dead.""

The artwork of 'Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed', which has been created by Adam Burke (SÓLSTAFIR, PORTRAIT)



Track-list

1. Sempiternal Grotesqueries (10:38)
2. In Eerie Deliverance (7:05)
3. Cathedral of Labyrinthine Darkness (7:23)
4. Cascade of Ashes (6:43)
5. Charnel Reflections (7:48)
6. Black Moss (2:21)

Total playing time: 41:58



Doom has always been a style for a rather select but also very dedicated audience. Among the aficionados, HOODED MENACE have quickly become a household name for authenticity and excellence.

With their upcoming fifth album, 'Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed', the Finns continue to impress with immaculate songwriting skills and the perfect balance between harsh death metal fuelled outbursts and exquisite melodic melancholy.

HOODED MENACE were formed in Joensuu, Finland in 2007 by guitarist Lasse Pyykkö, who had also performed in the Finnish cult death metal band PHLEGETHON. The band has always avowed to the strong influence by early CANDLEMASS and CATHEDRAL as well as PARADISE LOST, AUTOPSY, ASPHYX, and WINTER. Their lyrics are often inspired by the classic 1970's Spanish horror movie series 'The Blind Dead'.

HOODED MENACE recorded a 2-track demo, 'The Eyeless Horde' in 2007, which was released on 7" the following year. Their debut album 'Fulfill the Curse' was released in 2008 and the highly acclaimed sophomore full-length 'Never Cross the Dead' came out in 2010. HOODED MENACE remained in a highly creative mode and delivered 'Effigies of Evil' in 2012 and their latest milestone, 'Darkness Drips Forth' in 2015. With a penchant for classic vinyl, the Finns also released several split singles and EPs for example with ASPHYX and COFFINS.

HOODED MENACE toured in Europe and North America, and performed at many major metal festivals such as Hellfest, Roadburn, Maryland Deathfest, Tuska, and Party San Open Air among others.

Now the time has once again come, when HOODED MENACE unleash skeletal horror and sombre despair onto their craving audience. The dead shall ride on 'Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed' and the living shall rejoice!

Laster signs with Prophecy ProductionsDe Xavier le 07/01/2018 à 23:11


Atmospheric metal band Laster has signed with Prophecy Productions. The Netherlandic group, which formed in 2012 and refers to its ferocious sound as "obscure dance music", is currently hard at work on its third full-length release and follow up to last year's "Ons Vrije Fatum", a record hailed as "creative and intelligent— an original, well-executed piece of work that is unashamedly bizarre" (Angry Metal Guy) and picked as "album of the month" by Terrorizer magazine. Laster's Prophecy debut is expected in 2018.

A uniquely gifted band with a singular, solitary sound, Laster plays metal with all its fury, but its music could also be described as progressive (i.e. Crack the Skye-era Mastodon), atmospheric, experimental, and even jazz-like. Attempting to categorize Laster's elaborately textured and ever-changing style is like trying to catch air with a net; it's difficult to describe, but "atmospheric blackened shoegaze space prog" should provide a shadowy sense of what to expect. The band has the ability to stun first-time listeners with the utter violence of its initial impact which is unapologetically harsh, particularly with regards to the vocals which morph from flesh-peeling shrieks to ugly, gasping growls, harsh whispers, somber spoken words and rising yells of anguish. Despite its gruff exterior, digging into Laster's compositions reveals many layers of complexity.

"Prophecy has been part of our musical development since we were in our early teens. Inviting each other to this dance feels like a proper and weirdly magical gesture," comments the band when asked for a statement. "At the moment we are in the middle of the writing process. The record will be an expansion of 'Ons Vrije Fatum'. A bit more technical. A lot more nocturnal. City vibes. Some more dissonance. Experimental."

Deströyer 666 unleash track and reveal details of forthcoming new EPDe Xavier le 07/01/2018 à 23:09


DESTRÖYER 666 will release a crushing new EP on February 23rd, 2018. 'Call of the Wild' contains three brand new songs and a fresh take on their classic and live-favourite, "Trialed by Fire".

The metal wolf-pack is now streaming the title-track

3. Call of the Wild (4:46)
4. Trialed by Fire (7:02)
Total: 19:55

DESTRÖYER 666 continue to do what they are best at: kicking ass and hammering out heavy metal that is slamming straight into the face. No compromise, no sell out, no bullshit!

The Australians fill the gap between albums with the hard-hitting EP, 'Call of the Wild' that comes with a distinct taste of an unrepentantly classic flavour.

DESTRÖYER 666 don't do whiny nostalgia but simply stick to their old school roots, which are reaching straight down into the golden age of metal while allowing themselves to sound fresh and remain relevant.

The band originally started out as a solo project of BESTIAL WARLUST guitarist KK in Australia in 1994. As early as with debut album 'Unchain the Wolves' (1997), fast-tracked towards international acclaim. The even stronger second full-length, 'Phoenix Rising' (2000) had the Australians relocating to Europe to be able to satisfy the soaring demand for touring and festival shows. After a round of line-up changes, third full length 'Cold Steel... For an Iron Age' (2002) cemented the band's excellent reputation. After a hiatus caused among other issues by disenchantment with the business, DESTRÖYER 666 returned with 'Defiance' in 2009 and followed up on this success with the rough and gritty 'Wildfire' seven years later that saw them touring and performing at all the relevant metal festivals worldwide on a regular basis again.

'Call of the Wild' comes with three fresh tracks and the revisited classic, "Trialed by Fire”, which was first published on 'Terror Abraxas' (2003). Now come and get yours!

ALLEGAEON NewsDe Xavier le 07/01/2018 à 23:02


Allegaeon launches cover of Rush's "Animate" on all digital music services



During the recording sessions for Proponent for Sentience, Denver, CO's Allegaeon recorded two Rush covers. Fans have already heard "Subdivisions", which was included on the album and has since become the band's most streamed track on Spotify. Today, in celebration of January 6, 2018, the date version of the band's song 1.618, Allegaeon is releasing their cover of "Animate" worldwide on all digital music services. Listen to the song and stream/download from your preferred provider here: http://smarturl.it/allegaeon-animate


Guitarist Greg Burgess elaborates: "When we settled on Rush to cover during the 'Proponent' sessions, I simply couldn't pick which song to do. 'Subdivisions' or 'Animate.' Both were favorites for me personally, and both were sort of 'under the radar' eg. not 'Tom Sawyer' or 'Spirit of the Radio.' Where the original idea was to do a cover for a Japanese bonus track, we figured if we did both we could cover a special song for both the Japan AND Europe pressing. Then the powers that be decided to just include 'Subdivisions' on the album, and keep 'Animate' in reserve for something. Jan 6th, 2018 is the only occurrence of the golden ratio in date form that will occur during our life time. So 1.6.18 seemed like the perfect date to release it in Allegaeon fashion."

Proponent for Sentience was released in September of 2016. The album was produced by Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation) and is a complex, intelligent, and absorbing concept record that can rightfully sit alongside the true greats of the medium. Allegaeon will begin recording their fifth full-length album with Otero at Flatline Audio in March

SODOM NewsDe Xavier le 07/01/2018 à 22:42

Tom Angelripper splits up with Bernemann & Makka

New line-up to be announced soon

All 2018 shows to take place as announced


The new year has started with a bang for all Sodom fans: vocalist/bassist Tom Angelripper has split up with guitarist Bernd “Bernemann” Kost and drummer Markus “Makka” Freiwald. “After much thought and reflection I have decided on this difficult step to pave the way for new challenges,” explains Tom. “Sodom have always lived off the commitment and passion of everybody involved. Makka was part of the band for almost eight years, Bernemann even for more than twenty. To obviate a possible routine setting in which would make it impossible to continue our creative work optimally, I would like to start all over again with fresh and hungry musicians. At the same time I would like to say thank you to Bernemann and Makka for many successful years in which we performed fantastic shows and released a number of real metal manifestos.”

Irrespective of this spectacular line-up change, all scheduled Sodom shows will take place from April 2018 as announced. Tom is set to introduce his new comrades-in-arms at the Full Metal Mountain. Whether Sodom will continue to operate as a trio or perhaps become a quartet in future remains unclear. Tom: “I haven’t really made up my mind in this respect, I’m open to all options. I will now install the band’s new foundation pillars and look around for new musicians. One thing is already clear: Sodom will become even stronger!”

Together with his new line-up, Tom wants to start working on the upcoming album – to be released on Steamhammer/SPV – as soon as possible.
Tom: “SPV also look forward to our future collaboration and can expect a totally motivated band.”

Nightmarer unveil first track and details of forthcoming album debut

NIGHTMARER are unleashing the first crushing track taken from their forthcoming debut full-length, 'Cacophony of Terror', which is slated for release on March 23rd, 2018.

The dark and dissonant trio is now releasing "Skinner"



NIGHTMARER comment: "Our premiere track, 'Skinner' is the first song that we wrote for this album and it offers a mere glimpse into the abyss which is 'Cacophony of Terror'. This record tells a story of paranoia and self-destruction with no light at the end of the tunnel. 'Skinner' weighs heavy in bleak hopelessness, but it's only a prelude of things far worse to come..."

NIGHTMARER are furthermore releasing the cover-art and album details of 'Cacophony of Terror', which can be viewed below.

Cover art: Valnoir "Metastazis"



Track-list
1. The Descent (1:36)
2. Stahlwald (3:31)
3. Skinner (4:38)
4. Bleach (3:59)
5. Cave Digger (3:25)
6. Fetisch (4:46)
7. Tidal Waves of Terror (3:23)
8. Ceremony of Control (4:48)
9. Death (4:52)
10. Swansong (1:27)
Total playing time: 35:23



Chaos comes crashing in waves. Patterns emerge out of swirling energy. Darkness coalesces out of fragments into bizarre forms and strange angled shapes. What reads like a list of entries into H.P. Lovecraft's dictionary of horrors is the nightmarish musical vision offered by NIGHTMARER on their debut album, 'Cacophony of Terror'.

Seemingly out of nowhere, NIGHTMARER hit the extreme metal underground with their first EP, 'Chasm' in early 2016. This furious whirlwind of low end dissonance, devastating heaviness and majestic walls of sound took the scene by storm and the first 10" vinyl pressing almost sold out while still on pre-order.

Conceived in 2014 by former members of bands such as GIGAN, THE OCEAN and WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH, this international trio derives only the most extreme elements of their previous musical outlets and takes those into another hellish dimension.

Carving their distinctly personal and unique path into the dark matter that DEATHSPELL OMEGA, DODECAHEDRON, and ULSECT have ventured to explore, NIGHTMARER are now set to release one of the darkest and crushing albums of 2018. Enter this 'Cacophony of Terror' in search of extreme sonic pleasures at your own peril!

Returning to work with Murdock’s Aidan Cunningham, BAILER is relentless from the get-go as the merciless ‘Lying For A Living’ brings the listener up to speed in a riotous fashion, while the likes of ‘Tuesday Blues’ and ‘Death Is A Reminder’ take a filthier route, reminiscent of Cancer Bats. Since forming in 2015 BAILER have pricked the ears of many other musicians, with some familiar faces lending their vocals to this latest EP. Adam Carroll formerly of Zoax, Xander Coughlan of Emigra and Kevin ‘Lefty’ Letford of Red Enemy all feature, adding their own slice of character to the record.

With a small discography the four-piece have impressively garnered attention from Metal Hammer, Kerrang! Radio presenter Alex Baker, Metal Injection and Heavy Blog Is Heavy, an achievement that is no mean feat for a band so early into their career. BAILER have spent their short time as a band building up a strong reputation in their home ground, having played shows alongside Norma Jean, Sick Of It All, Employed To Serve, HECK, Murdock, Shields, Red Enemy and more.

VISIGOTH NewsDe Xavier le 03/01/2018 à 22:39


Visigoth reveals details for new album, 'Conqueror's Oath'; launches first single, "Warrior Queen", online



On February 9th, Salt Lake City's traditional metal champions Visigoth will release their sophomore album, Conqueror's Oath, via Metal Blade Records.

Standing in staunch opposition to any presumptuous notion of "reinventing the wheel" or "redefining the genre", Visigoth instead dedicates themselves to worshipping at the ageless altars of heavy metal with a singular focus on writing music inspired by their favorite records. Whether whipped into a frenzy ignited by classic USPM or NWOBHM anthems, or pensively meditating on traditional epic heavy metal or weighty doom-inspired moments, these Salt City hessians wear their influences proudly on their sleeves. With their new 2017 long-player Conqueror's Oath, Visigoth stays true to the title and conquers the sophomore slump blues with 8 iron-forged anthems of pure metal magick guaranteed to satiate the hunger of the rock'n'roll hordes! Returning to the depths of the Boar's Nest in their hometown of Salt Lake City to record once again with engineer extraordinaire Andy Patterson (Subrosa, Deathblow, Dreadnought, et al), Conqueror's Oath was hammerforged in a whirlwind month of mayhem and mastered by Dave Otero of Flatline Audio (Satan's Host, Nightbringer, Khemmis, et al). Immortalized by breathtaking cover art created by none other than underground album art legend Kris Verwimp (whose work has graced records by Absu, Bewitched, Desaster, Horna, Moonsorrow, Skullview, Arkona, and many, many more) in proper swords-and-sorcery fashion, Conqueror's Oath stands tall on the field of battle, serving as a gauntleted fist in the face of non-believers. Prepare for the onslaught of Salt City Steel!

In advance of their massive European tour, SEPTICFLESH are now revealing a pro-shot clip for the track "Martyr" taken from their latest masterpiece, 'Codex Omega', which has been directed by long-time collaborator Jon Simvonis.



SEPTICFLESH comment: "We are welcoming the new year by releasing a second video from our latest album, 'Codex Omega' – this time for the song, 'Martyr'. Once again the clip is directed by Jon Simvonis, blending the music of SEPTICFLESH with Kendo, which literally means 'the way of the sword'. It is a battle of sword and spirit. The ultimate goal of the fighter is to become superior to his own previous self."

Director Jon Simvonis adds: "We really had an awesome time filming SEPTICFLESH while they were delivering an explosive performance for the 'Martyr' video! No wonder, why this band nails it on every stage that they set foot on."

Smash Hit ComboDe Xavier le 02/01/2018 à 21:58


darkTunes est très fier de vous présenter le nouveau single "In Game (English Version)" de Smash Hit Combo !!!

pour écouter le nouveau single et voir la video : http://smarturl.it/SHCinGame

La version française de cette chanson se trouve sur l'album "Playmore" de 2015, mais en raison de l'énorme succès international du nouveau double album "L33T" (en français et en anglais), nous avons décidé de re-enregistrer ce hit en anglais.
