OUTRE – Stream New Song “Chant 3: The Fall” Off New Album

Posted in Black Metal, Metal, Music, music news, rock music with tags , , , , on January 20, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

OUTRE - Ghost Chants - promo album cover pic - #2015OMO

After suffering a setback with the loss of their vocalist Andrzej Nowak, Black Metal group Outre have unveiled a track from their upcoming album recorded with the participation of Stawrogin (Odraza/Massemord). A twisted and ripping track drawing as much from French bands such as Deathspell Omega as Outre’s compatriots Behemoth, it will surely draw the attention of those with a finely tuned Black Metal radar.

The band comments:
“We are now finishing the production of our debut LP “Ghost Chants”. With minor delay caused by our vocalist leaving, the vocals recording session are now heading to an end. We asked Stawrogin for help, in our opinion one of the best throats in the Polish black metal underground, and so far we are more than satisfied with the effects of his work. A promo track “Chant 3. – The fall” gives a sneak peek of what you can expect on our debut long player. We gave our best to make this record as much essential and intense as possible.”

Stream the song on Soundcloud here:

Countess - Sermons of the Infidel - promo cover pic - November 7 - 2014 - #0011

COUNTESS‘Sermons Of The Infidel’ contains a selection of 15 songs from Countess’ past. These tracks were selected by the band and all – save two live songs – were recorded again specifically for this album, throughout 2013 and 2014.

Eight of these tracks were released in 2013 as a digital-only EP. Due to popular demand, the band decided to release a physical version as well. The original eight tracks have been remixed and remastered and seven tracks have been added: five more new versions of Countess classics – including a Manilla Road cover – and two live songs, recorded at the ‘Metal Magic’ festival in Denmark this year.

Countess - live band pic - promo - 2014 - #1107

Though not an anthology in the strictest sense, this record does include many highlights from the band’s extensive discography. It is therefore a perfect record for those who aren’t familiar with Countess yet to get a first taste of the band’s unique take on metal.

‘Sermons Of The Infidel’ is released exclusively as a digipak with an 8-page booklet. The album is out now.

To get a taste of the album, listen to and watch Countess’ official video of ‘Bloed In De Sneeuw’, below. This perhaps Countess’ most well-known song as well as the first-ever Black Metal song with lyrics in Dutch. The original version was released on the band’s sophomore album twenty years ago.

‘Sermons Of The Infidel’ is out now and available from: http://countessmetal.bandcamp.comwww.heidenshart.nl and www.new-era-productions.nl

Sermons of the Infidel – Track List:

  1. Hymn To The Gods Of Yore
  2. Trumpets Of Dawn
  3. I Am The Infidel
  4. Child Of The Millennia
  5. Son Of The Dragon
  6. Sermon Of The Devil Preacher
  7. Alone Against The World
  8. Thermopylae
  9. City Of Satan
  10. Chosen By The Gods
  11. Chapel Of Doom
  12. Bloed In De Sneeuw
  13. The Veils Of Negative Existence
  14. Feuer Und Blut (live)
  15. Hell’s Rock & Roll (live)

ABOUT COUNTESS:

Countess is a Dutch band that has been unleashing metal music upon the world since 1992. Countess’ unique and harsh style of metal, characterized by an uncompromising loyalty to the old Heavy Metal and Black Metal traditions but by no means unoriginal, has certainly gone through changes over the years, but its essence has always remained the same.

The most important influences of Countess are the old Black Metal legends like Venom, Bathory and Hellhammer and traditional Heavy Metal bands like Manowar and Manilla Road.

Since 1993, Countess has released fourteen full-length albums. The most recent record, ‘Ancient Lies And Battle Cries’, was released this year.

In 2014 Countess also took to the stage again for the first time in more than sixteen years, including  succesful shows at the ‘Veneration Of The Dead’ festival in Rotterdam, ‘Under The Black Sun’ in Berlin and ‘Metal Magic’ in Denmark.

Currently, the band is rehearsing for more upcoming shows as well as working on new material. After 22 years, Countess is still going strong.

SAHHR – Los Angeles-Based Blackened Metal Legion To Release Debut EP This Halloween Via Domestic Genocide; Teaser Video Posted

Posted in Black Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 17, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Sahhr - debut EP - promo cover pic - 2014

Southern California-based Blackened Metal perpetrators, SAHHR, are readying to drop their self-titled debut EP upon the masses this Halloween!

Featuring past and current members of Skull And Bullets, Dowager, Scarecrow and Unwritten Law, SAHHR fuses all the prime elements of black metal, death metal and metalcore into a bestial mix of unrepentant audio torment fit for devout followers of Watain, 1349, Goatwhore and even Lamb Of God. The three-hymns comprising their forthcoming EP were written by vocalist Ryllyeh and guitarist Aarsoth, recorded at Lot 54 Studio in Huntington Beach, California by Dylan-James Ehren Brock (Ghost Of Abel, Skull And Bullets, Dowager, Intestinal Buffet) and will be released via Domestic Genocide on the unholiest of days, Halloween, alongside a special bloodbath of a video for second track, “Slay The Savior.”

Comments vocalist Ryllyeh: “We really feel people are going to dig the EP because these three songs really encompass the true scope of our sound. We try our best to stretch the limits of traditional black metal by adding elements from many different genres of extreme music, while still keeping it fluid and of course, at all times, HEAVY. We are pleased to join the Domestic Genocide roster as we’ve had dealings with the owner, Black Moor, before. He has very eclectic taste in metal and thought he would understand our sound. He also has a killer crew of people working behind the scenes so we know this debut will get in the correct hands.”

Sahhr – Track Listing:

  1. Altar Of Maggots
  2. Slay The Savior
  3. Miscreant

SAHHR formed earlier this year by singer/songwriter Ryllyeh. A veteran of the New York City punk and metal scenes since the early 1980s, Ryllyeh’s (AKA-Joe Truck, also a world-renowned tattoo artist) past musical endeavors include time spent in ’80s Deathrock bands Scarecrow and Braineaters, the latter of which included ex-Samhain guitarist, Damien. He also plays bass and screams in doom heavyweights-Dowager. Ryllyeh united with guitarist Aarsoth earlier this year and instantly began composing what would become the trio of tracks occupying the EP.

Sahhr will be released via Domestic Genocide Records on October 31st, 2014. In the meantime check out the twenty-second teaser clip below:

SAHHR Personnel:

Ryllyeh – Vocals

Aarsoth – Guitars

Nungh – Drums

Jukgoh – Bass

Daoloth – Guitars

Sidious Drummer Releasing COLOSUS Solo Project “Blestem” October 7th In N. America / October 27th in Europe

Posted in Black Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 15, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Colosus - Krhudd - promo portrait pic - 2014 - #33098

Known for his work as drummer of SIDIOUS, Krhudd will re-release Blestem, the debut album from one-man Black Metal project COLOSUS through Kaotoxin Records on October 7th in North America and October 27th in Europe. The album will be available as a limited edition first press (1,000 copies) DigiSleeve CD and Cassette Tape (100 copies). The album can be pre-ordered at shop.kaotoxin.com.

Perhaps best described as Dark Ambient Black Metal Soul Torture, Blestem is a crushing, desperate and intense journey into blasphemy, pain, destruction and endless agony. Though Krhudd plays a myriad of instruments and delivers loathsome vocals, the album also features special guest vocals from by Déhà (WE ALL DIE (LAUGHING, COAG) on “La Apus.” Also featuring a cover of COLDWORLD’s “Red Snow,” the album comes bundled with a free 26-track Kaotoxin Records compilation. Blestem was originally issued in 2013 as a digital-only release and is highly recommended for fans of XASTUR, LEVIATHAN, and BLUT AUS NORD.

A trailer for Blastem is posted below:
