Botanist’s record is now available from The Flenser; housed in a hand assembled package with an insert and CD.

Order Now!

Stream/Download

Botanist, the unconventional one-man black metal band featuring vocals, drums, and hammered dulcimer instrumentation is gearing up to release a fourth album IV: Mandragora, on February 19th from experimental metal label The Flenser. Combining lyrical creativity and musical ingenuity, IV: Mandragora is a concept record on the alchemical creation of a mandrake and how the Botanist is instructed on raising an army of mandrakes to wipe out humanity.

The songs of Botanist are told from the perspective of the Botanist, a crazed man of science who lives in self-imposed exile, as far away from humanity and it’s crimes against nature. Existing amongst a sanctuary of fantasy and wonder, which he calls the Verdant Realm, he surrounds himself with plants and flowers, finding solace in the company of the natural world while envisioning the destruction of man. There, seated upon his throne of Veltheimia, the Botanist awaits the day when humans will either die or kill each other off, thus allowing plants to reclaim Earth in a green glory once more.

NIDINGR – ‘Greatest Of Deceivers’ Details Revealed; Releasing In North America On November 20th

Posted in Black Metal, black metal albums, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on September 13, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Recent Indie Recordings signees, NIDINGR, will unleash their new full-length, Greatest Of Deceivers, in North America on November 20th. Starring present and past members of bands such as Mayhem, Gorgoroth, DHG (Dødheimsgard), 1349 and God Seed, among others, the Norwegian Black Metal magicians are known for their efficiently complex songwriting, ravagingly dissonant, yet infinitely catchy riffs and breakneck tempos. Their two previous offerings — 2005’s Sorrow Infinite And Darkness and 2010’sWolf Father — prove what this maniacal assault is capable of. 

NIDINGR recorded G.O.D. in Crystal Canyon Studios in Oslo, home to a host of prominent Norwegian acts including cult experimentalists Ulver, to accomplish a unique ‘70s, vintage style production. The sound they’ve created is a wholly organic, warm, unedited and un-triggered production that further emphasizes the great musicianship caught on tape. Greatest Of Deceivers was produced by guitarist Teloch, mixed by Anders Møller (Kitchie Kitchie Ki Me O, Euroboys, 120 Days, Turbonegro, etc.) and  mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano at Orgone Studios. The cover was crafted by the renowned Metastazis (Morbid Angel, Nachtmystium, Paradise Lost, Watain, Blut Aus Nord, etc.).

Greatest Of Deceivers continues the theme from Sorrow Infinite And Darkness, based on Enochian texts. As on the previous album, ten Enochian Æthyrs are evoked through the course of the album.

Greatest Of Deceivers Track Listing:

01. Greatest Of Deceivers
02. All Crowns Fall
03. O Thou Empty God
04. The Balances
05. Vim Patior
06. Rags Upon A Beggar
07. The Worm Is Crowned
08. Pure Pale Gold
09. Mother Of Abominations
10. Dweller In The Abyss

VALDUR – Alpine Black/Death Occultists Issue Recording Update; New Song Posted

Posted in Black Metal, black metal albums, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 13, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Alpine Black/Death occultists VALDUR recently completed composing their upcoming, as-yet, untitled new full-length. Official recording sessions will commence on November 12th at Earhammer Studios. Additionally, VALDUR recently unleashed an ultra limited two-song EP entitled The Hammer Pit containing a rough version of two new songs. Taste the blood of track one, “Conjuring The Fire Plagues,” at the band’s Official BandCamp Page. When asked to talk about the upcoming new material, the band said in a collective statement: “We wish not to elaborate too much and allow the music that we will be putting out in the near future to do the talking.”

In the meantime, check out VALDUR live in the studio at KDVS at THIS LOCATION.

Hailing from Mammoth Lakes, California, VALDUR released Raven God Amongst Us in 2010 via Blood Mountain Records. The record proved to be an infernal masterpiece among the underground masses. Noted The Metal Crypt in a review of the record: “USBM is so often by the numbers that I am wary of it right out of the gate, but this is a band that remembers what is good about black metal, and does it very well indeed. Not an album to overlook,”About.com called the band, “the best black metal band in the United States that you’ve probably never heard of,” while Thrash Pit opined, “…a shimmering brand of black metal which pierces hearts rather than suffocates lungs.”

VALDUR:

Samuel: Guitars/Vocals

William: Bass

Sxuperion: Drums

AUTOLATRY – Announce U.S. Tour

Posted in Black Metal, black metal albums, Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on July 6, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

New England Black Metal quintet AUTOLATRY are set to embark upon a massive U.S. tour in support of their self-released EP entitled Of The Land. Blending razor-edged Progressive and Melodic Black Metal with primal intensity and Folk sensibilities, AUTOLATRY promises to leave audiences standing in awe as they blaze a trail across the United States. The tour is set to kick off on July 12th in Worcester, MA with cities and venues confirmed through August 2nd. The band will remain on the road for another three weeks before wrapping things up with a homecoming show on August 24th in New Haven, CT. Confirmed dates and venues are listed below.

Steeped in their home region New England’s rich heritage, Autolatry meld progressive and melodic elements into a whirlwind of sonic character that can only be described as “New England Black Metal”.  Formed in 2010 as a 3-piece band by brothers Dave and Matt Kaminsky and Karl Chamberlain, Autolatry has since matured into a well-rounded quintet.

The band self-released their 2012 EP Of The Land to rave reviews, drawing diverse comparisons to the likes of Krallice, Woods of Ypres, and Absu. In addition to recording the follow-up to Of The Land, Autolatry embarks on a 40+ date US tour between July and August 2012. Expect big things from these New Englanders in the very near future!  Of The Land and the band’s 2010 debut, The Hill, are both available at: http://www.autolatry.bandcamp.com/

IRDORATH – Signs With Massacre Records

Posted in Black Metal, black metal albums, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal with tags , , , , , , on November 12, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

IRDORATH signs with Massacre Records:

The history of the Thrash/Black Metal band started in 2005, when Markus (guitar) and three other musicians formed the band IRDORATH. The first demo “Erwachen” and the first album “Goetterdaemmerung” were recorded and the first gigs were played.
During the work on the second album some lineup changes happened. Since then, Thomas is playing the drums and Esche is playing the rhythm guitar.

The second album “Dekonstrukteur Des Fleisches” was recorded at the “Soundtempel – Studio” and was produced by Stefan Traunmueller. After finishing the record the singer and the bassist left the band.

Markus took over the singing part in addition to the lead guitar and Mario joined the band as the new bassist. Now the lineup is complete again and stronger than ever.

“Dekonstrunkteur Des Fleisches” is going to be released in late January 2012!

GLORIOR BELLI: Full Album Stream Courtesy Of Decibelmagazine.com – From September 19th To September 26th, 2011

Posted in Black Metal, black metal albums, Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , on September 19, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

Beginning today, Decibelmagazine.com will stream GLORIOR BELLI’s upcoming new full-length, The Great Southern Darkness, in its entirety! The stream will run for one week (September 19 – September 26) before its official North American release through Metal Blade Records on September 27, 2011.

Check the record out in full at THIS LOCATION.

Their fourth full-length in a catalog of blackened enormity, The Great Southern Darkness offers up 11 tracks that magnify GLORIOR BELLI‘s finest qualities. Said Revolver in an advance review of the record: “The album combines vicious black-metal riffery with deep New Orleans stoner grooves to create a metal monolith that is equal parts northern blaze and southern trendkill.” Added American Aftermath: “Extraordinary mesmerizing, mind-blowing, use whatever terms you want, this is fantastic.” Sea Of Tranquility agreed calling it: “…a round of French avant-garde Metal, with the same sort of dissonant intensity of Deathspell Omega, but – and this is, the interesting part – with very clear influences from Southern Metal, Sludge Metal and Post-Metal,” while Infernal Masquerade noted simply: “If you are looking for a great BM release that is different and entertaining, be sure to get this album.”

Formed in the suburbs of Paris during the close of 2002, GLORIOR BELLI has garnered a stellar reputation in the extreme music community for mixing desert rock textures with the brutal, ominous, doom-laden vibe typical of Black Metal. The band was recently added to Montreal’s Messe des Morts festival. The festival is set to take place in Saint-Laurent, QC at Coop Katacombes on November 25 and 26. Other bands on the bill include Inquisition, Absu, Forteresse and more! This will mark GLORIOR BELLI‘s first ever North American appearance. For further info, point your browser HERE.

MARDUK – IRON DAWN EP: Black Metal Legends Unleash 3 Songs of Hell Summoned, Raging Impact

Posted in Black Metal, black metal albums, Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 11, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

MARDUK – Releasing on May 31st, 2011, via Regain Records, is a three song EP from Black Metal Legends Marduk titled: Iron Dawn. Black Metal this prolific doesn’t take any prisoners… it simply recruits by example. Not many bands, from any music genre, can release a three song EP and have as strong and convincing of an impact as Marduk has accomplished on Iron Dawn.

The Blackened rage seems to flow almost effortlessly from Marduk, as each song carries it’s sonic fury into the next, like a Hell’s soldier passing a baton onto it’s equally accepted brother from the underworld. With sonic elements that can be construed as progressive, one characteristic remains constant with Marduk, which is their overlay of abrupt explosiveness of Metal that is deeply rooted Black.

The Black Metal battalion needs Marduk at the forefront and Iron Dawn is a master strike reminder that they still command and refuse to follow. Chaos can be captured and revived through song, Marduk can make chaos become a desired theatre of thorns that beckons me to enter and turn my senses on overdrive. Often times the message is sent very clearly, in small packages, that the messenger is never to be underestimated. Marduk has instilled this message very clearly with their three song EP of Iron Dawn.

* IRON DAWN is a 6-panel Digipak CD and limited to 666 vinyl copies, (200 in yellow).

IRON DAWN – Track Listing:

Warschau 2 – Headhunter Halfmoon

Wacht Am Rhein Drumbeats Of Death

Prochorovka – Blood And Sunflowers

VREID: Norwegian Black Metal Collective Unleash Fifth Full Length To North America Today!

Posted in Black Metal, black metal albums, Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 15, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

Norwegian black metallers VREID today release their fifth studio album, simply entitled V, in North America via Indie Recordings. Issued to European territories in February, the nine-track offering was produced by bassist/songwriter Hváll at his own 1184 Studio and has already received a positive response from European press, earning a perfect 6/6 rating in Scream Magazine in Norway and an 8/10 in Terrorizer who called the record VREID’s “most accomplished work to date.”

V Track Listing:

01. Arche

02. The Blood Eagle

03. Wolverine Bastards

04. The Sound Of The River

05. Fire On The Mountain

06. The Others & The Look

07. Slave

08. Welcome To The Asylum

09. Then We Die

Check out the video for “The Sound Of The River”, filmed in Wroclaw, Poland by Grupa 13 (Behemoth, Amon Amarth) Just click this link

 

The song is reportedly inspired by the book Markens Grøde/Growth Of The Soil by Knut Hamsun (a book which earned the legendary and controversial Norwegian author a Nobel prize in literature in 1920).

ABOUT VREID:

VREID, Norwegian for “wrath,” arose from the ashes of Windir, following the tragic death of Valfar in January 2004. At the time the band consisted of Windir members Hváll (bass), Steingrim (drums), Sture (vocals/guitar) and new guitarist/longtime friend, Ese. This lineup went on to release four albums and one DVD.

Between 2004 -2006 VREID released two full-lengths on Tabu Recordings: Kraft and Pitch Black Brigade. The music was a natural continuance of the music Hváll wrote with Windir, with a new twist — the ambiance of Windir and rawness of Norwegian black metal meshed with the rocking groove of Sepultura, Metallica and Motörhead. The lyrics were in both English and Norwegian, and heavily influenced by historical themes.

By 2006 VREID signed to then-new imprint Indie Records. Their third album, I Krig (Norwegian for “at war”), was released in May 2007. All the lyrics were based on poems from 1946 by Gunnar Reiss-Andersen, a member of the Norwegian resistance fighters during WW2. In 2009 they released Milorg. With English lyrics, the album once again dealt with the resistance movement’s work in Norway during WW2. The album received rave reviews and is VREID’s greatest success to date.

Since then, the band has been on a long-lasting path of progression and success. Their European headlining tour with Kampar and Iskald (on which they played Milorg in it’s entirety almost every night) was nearly sold out everywhere. They also did an extensive tour with Pestilence as special guests on their comeback tour. In April 2009 VREID performed on the main stage of the Inferno fest. Their set included pyro, movie screens and guest performances to illustrate the themes from their last album. This show is the backbone for their first ever DVD, Vreid Goddamnit that was released in September 2010. In the summer of that same year, VREID found themselves playing some of their most monumental shows ever on the main stages of mammoth festivals like Wacken Open Air, Summer Breeze, Brutal Assault, Oslo Live and Zwarte Cross. For the US release in October 2009, they did the Heathen Fest with Eluveitie and Belphegor which took them to 29 cities in 31 days.

VREID spent 2010 playing select festivals and shows, with their main focus on writing V. Build upon Norwegian blackness and ’70s rock, on V, the Norwegian black ‘n’ rollers are reunited with guitar maestro Strom from Windir and Ulcus days (former guitarist Ese fled the band late 2009). With history as the lifeline of their lyrics, V focuses its thoughts on Hamsun, Munch and Sarte and is clearly bears some of their heaviest and most complex songs ever recorded. VREID have marched across the world performing over 200 shows since their start back in 2004, and will be hitting the road 2011. Further details to be announced in due time.

NIDINGR - Cult Norwegian Black Metal unit NIDINGR return from a five year hiatus with their raging new album. The assassins that form this deadly unit have culminated their dark arts and aggression on their sophomore full-length Wolf Father, the uncompromising album sure to scathe listeners with its relentless whirlwind of black metal wrath. NIDINGR remain a mainly cult act, although some might conder them a “super group” of sorts when they discover the band is comprised of a long list of notable black metal artisans including bassist/guitarist Teloch (1349, Gorgoroth, Ov Hell, Orcustus, Umoral, Konsortium), bassist/guitarist Blargh (Gravferd, Dødheimsgard), vocalist Cpt. Estrella Grasa (Kort Prosess), and drummer Hellhammer (Immortal, Shining, Thorns, Umoral, Mayhem, Emperor). Wolf Father even features a guest appearance from Ulver’s Kristoffer Rygg (a.k.a. Garm), and features artwork by French visionary Valnoir of Metastazis, known for their work with Watain, Ulver, Peste Noire, Nachtmystium, Anteus and more.

* NIDINGR Wolf Father will be released on Vendlus Records, January 18, 2011.

VALDUR “Raven God Amongst Us” – A Raw And Apocalyptic Black Metal Storm

Posted in Black Metal, black metal albums, Extreme Metal, extreme music, Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music with tags , , , , , , , on November 18, 2010 by Metal Odyssey

VALDUR – From Mammoth Lakes, California, VALDUR unleashes upon the world… Raven God Amongst Us. A self financed, full length album of Blackened might, Raven God Amongst Us has been released on drummer Sxuperion’s very own Bloody Mountain Records. All nine songs on this formidable album, create a steady flow of darkened melodies that lay within the layers of cataclysmic guitar leads, phrenetic drums, earth trembling bass and vocals that gather electrifying steam, with each passing second. It’s the overall apocalyptic vibe of no turning back, that engages the senses on Raven God Amongst Us.

Taking into account, the back to back songs of Past Of Wolves and Vicious Existence, it is the plummeting and spiraling Blackened atmosphere of falling into the unknown abyss of something uncannily dark. VALDUR presents their Black Metal in a raw state of serrated lined appeal… one could not expect Black Metal to suddenly open up and reveal harmonious chorus over syrupy keyboards. VALDUR is making a statement by realizing a Black Metal foundation is built on key Black Metal fundamentals, a vastly dark atmosphere that tantalizes on the embraceable bizarre, rawness and everything else… Blackened.

Traditional lyrical content, coupled with a luring and engaging sound of Black Metal in it’s most anti-mainstream existence, is amassed within and outside the walls of dark sound as each song plays through on this album. This album mirrors the storm clouds that are about to swallow up a sun-lit sky, it’s the impending winter storm that science could not fathom. Commercialized darkness and Blackness can take a back seat to what VALDUR is creating here… this is underground, this is Black Metal… this is VALDUR and their creation they have named: Raven God Amongst Us.

SATYRICON – “BLACK CROW ON A TOMBSTONE” VIDEO IS A BLACK METAL TRIUMPH

Satyricon - The Age Of Nero was released back on November 3, 2008. This is an album that gets increasingly greater for me, after each listen. One song in particular, Black Crow On A Tombstone, just stays in my head for days… weeks on end. I am not going to fight it off, it’s a fantastic song that I immensely enjoy. I can remember distinctly, the first time I listened to The Age Of Nero in it’s entirety… it blew me away. The grooves are abundant throughout this album, Black Metal reigns supreme through these songs. Satyricon created an album with The Age Of Nero that I would easily consider to be… Metal Album of the Decade. I’m not kidding around… the Metal… Black Metal, on this album is representative of what incredible song writing is all about, both musically and lyrically. Satyr proved to me, that you do not need to get mathematical, intricate or go over the top, in order to create a sensational Black Metal album such as this. Here is the video for Black Crow On A Tombstone – the darkness of the video compliments this song. Satyr sings this song with unreal conviction, which is an attribute I find so admirable and remarkable. Being pre-warned by the sight of a black crow, that impending doom is upon you, is the theme of this song. Here’s hoping you enjoy this great song and video as much as I do…

If you wish, you can read my full review for Satyricon – The Age Of Nero, which I posted on April 7, 2009, by clicking the header below:

Satyricon “The Age Of Nero” – this is serious Metal

LONG LIVE SATYRICON.

Well, sorry fellow Metalheads and Satyricon fans… apparently “WMG” (yeah, that record compnay) doesn’t want to “share” their music video’s with blogs like Metal Odyssey. It’s too bad, due to the fact that Metal Odyssey gives away FREE advertising for record companies like WMG day in and day out. Wherever you do go to finally see this amazing Satyricon music video, I hope you do enjoy it. Black Crow On A Tombstone is one HELL of a music video from one incredible Black Metal Band that is Satyricon.
