Resistance - The Seeds Within - promo cover pic - 2014

Death Metal Chuggers RESISTANCE have announced the artwork and title of their forthcoming fifth studio album. Titled, The Seeds Within, the album will be released later this year under a label to be announced.

The band has posted a studio trailer for The Seeds Within, check it out below:

Guitarist Oli Dris commented about the album: “The CD elaborates the human race and its defects. How we desperately seek forgiveness, how coward we are towards our reality. The lyrical content is heavy and depressive. It metaphorically pictures how helpless we are facing whatever comes at us. The music is structured and shaped around this concept. Rhythm is the essence but melody plays its part bringing freshness when needed and making the listener’s journey flawless. More brutal, more aggressive and heavier than ever, Resistance matured and will crush!”

Legendary French Death Metal band LOUDBLAST have posted a brand new track off their forthcoming long-player, Burial Ground.

The song, “Ascending Straight in Circles,” is now playing below:

For a little eye candy to go along with the aural pummeling, LOUDBLAST has revealed the cover art for Burial Ground. Done by Will Kuberski of Worthless Endeavors, the artist responsible for INCANTATION’s Vanquish in Vengeance, the artwork can be seen below:

Loudblast - Burial Ground - promo cover pic - 2014

A solid mix of classic and modern influences, the latest output from these death metal veterans dares transgressing their traditional thrash/death style of yore to achieve a much more malign yet as catchy sound. Burial Ground benefits from a massive production and sees the band evolving in further darker sounds while retaining the original 90s classic death metal roots.

Burial Ground is set for North American release on June 10th, via Listenable Records.

Pre-orders are available at: www.shop.listenable.net/49_loudblast.

BENEATH – Icelandic Deathsquad To Release Second Album Via Unique Leader

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , on March 9, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Beneath - The Barren Throne - promo cover pic - 2014

In a few short weeks, Reykjavik, Iceland-based Death Metal squadron, BENEATH, will unleash the hellstorm that is their daunting sophomore full-length, The Barren Throne, once again through Unique Leader Records.

With an unrelenting fifty-three minutes of technical death metal cruelty through eleven new tracks, on The Barren ThroneBENEATH has sought to envelope melody, atmosphere and structure within its manic blastbeats and speed-picked guitars. The album evolves lyrically and conceptually around the idea of a being or entity that consumes and devours everything around it until it’s forced to consume itself. The follow-up to their Unique Leader-released 2012 debut full-length, Enslaved By Fear, the dynamic The Barren Throne is BENEATH’s first release with new vocalist, Benedikt Natanael Bjarnason, who joined the lineup in June 2013.

The album’s massive production was achieved by the Wieslawski brothers of famed Hertz Studios in Poland (Behemoth, Dead Infection, Vader, Decapitated), and the album artwork once again sanctioned to the masterful Raymond Swanland. The end result is a complex and procedural, yet dynamic album that rewards repeated listening. The Barren Throne will be released worldwide on April 29th.

_____________________________

Said guitarist Johann Ingi: “We are truly thrilled to be releasing our second full-length on Unique Leader Records. During the writing and recording of The Barren Throne, every single member of the band has surpassed themselves, taking the album to another level. The album is tighter, more focused and doesn´t give an inch when it comes to sheer brutality. We are inspired by many different genres of extreme music and on this record we sought to embrace this and transcend the need to adhere to the common boundaries of the technical death metal genre. This has resulted in what we feel is our most dynamic and relevant release yet.”

The Barren Throne - Track Listing:

1. Depleted Kingdom

2. Chalice

3. The Barren Throne

4. Putrid Seed of Affection

5. Iron Jaw

6. Sovereign Carnal Passion

7. Sky Burial

8. Veil of Mercy

9. Mass Extinction Codex

10. Storm Drainer

11. Unearthed

Beneath - The Barren Throne - promo cover pic - 2014

Formed in the winter of 2007/2008, the members of BENEATH have all been active in the Icelandic Metal scene for some years, with current and former connections to Sororicide, Changer, Atrum, Azoic and Diabolus to name a few. After making their live debut supporting The Black Dahlia Murder in January 2009 and winning the inaugural Icelandic finals for the Wacken Open Air Metal Battle they became the first Icelandic band to perform at the Wacken Open Air festival in August 2009. More festival appearances followed, amongst others Death Feast Open Air in 2010 and Neurotic Deathfest in 2011.

In February 2010, BENEATH released their debut Hollow Empty Void EP on Mordbrann Musikk which landed them a record deal with Unique Leader Records. In 2012 the band released their first full-length, Enslaved By Fear, which was mixed by Daniel Bergstrand at Dug Out studios in Uppsala, Sweden.In 2013, singer and founder Gisli Sigmundsson left the band and was replaced by Benedikt Natanael Bjarnason (Azoic).

ALTERBEAST – Technical Death Metal Militia To Release Debut Full-Length Via Unique Leader This March; New Track Posted

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , on January 17, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Alterbeast - promo band pic - #1 - 2013

Sacramento Technical Death Metal militia, ALTERBEAST, is pleased to unleash their full-length debut via Unique Leader this Spring! Titled Immortal, the eight track monster offering was meticulously assembled in several locals throughout 2013.

With guitars and bass recorded at Augmented Audio in Los Angeles with former The Black Dahlia Murder bassist Ryan “Bart” Williams, vocals arranged at Mayhemeness Studios in Sacramento by Bob Swanson (Rings Of Saturn, Plague Window et al) and drums tracked at Castle Ultimate Studios with Zack Ohren (Light This City, All Shall Perish, First Blood, Cattle Decapitation, Warbringer et al), who also mixed and mastered the release, Immortal promises to deliver some of the most dynamic, instrumentally adept and plainly crushing material of the year.

Elaborates vocalist Cam Rogers of the outcome:Immortal is what was spawned from hard work, dedication, and downright brutal musicianship. It has intricate solos, absolutely crushing interludes and brutal circle-pit anthems. ALTERBEAST sets the scene with grievous piano preceding the onset of ‘Flesh Bound Text’ which comes in with blistering drums and guitars effortlessly making their way around the fret board. Every piece truly has its own personality on this record, whether it’s the apocalyptic soundscapes of ‘Ancient’s Retribution,’ the devastating aggression of ‘Vile Remnants’ or the unmerciful grooves in ‘Throne of Maggots.’ This album has something for every listener and comes together seamlessly to form as a breathtaking whole. Immortal is exactly what we intended it to be: a gripping and intense death metal album.”

Liquefy your brain with the sounds of opening track “Flesh Bound Text” below!

Immortal Track Listing:

1. Flesh Bound Text

2. Of Decimus Divine

3. Vile Remnants

4. Ancient’s Retribution

5. Mutilated Marvel

6. Into Oblivion

7. Serpentspire

8. Throne of Maggots

ALTERBEAST - Large Band Logo - B&W - 2013

Formed in 2011 under the working title Gary Busey Amber Alert (GBAA), ALTERBEAST combines the teachings of The Black Dahlia Murder, Necrophagist and Spawn Of Possession with the classic Death Metal mastery of band’s like Dissection and Morbid Angel into an irate expulsion of sonic deviance. After a year of dedicated song-crafting, ALTERBEAST unleashed their first demo in 2012 and officially waged war on the populace with numerous shows opening for Deicide, Dying Fetus, Testament, Revocation, Exhumed, Severed Savior and many others. Their crushing live assaults combined with a DIY ethos quickly earned them a revered place within the local Death Metal community.

Immortal will rear its head upon the masses on March 18, 2014 via Unique Leader. Further intel, including preorder links, to be announced in the coming days.

ALTERBEAST Personnel:

Cam Rogers – Vocals
Rusty Cornell – Guitar
Andrew Lamb – Guitar
Michael Zamora – Bass
Gabe Seeber (The Kennedy Veil, Decrepit Birth, Abysmal Dawn et al) – Drums

THUNDERWAR – RELEASE DIGITAL VERSION OF “THE BIRTH OF THUNDER”

Thunderwar - The Birth Of Thunder - promo cover pic - 2013

Polish Death Metal titans Thunderwar are proud to announce the digital release of their EP The Birth of Thunder. Previously only available on limited edition CD, the EP can now be ordered for $3 from their Bandcamp page here: https://thunderwar1.bandcamp.com/

Band Bio

Cold as ice, angry as a horde of Viking warriors and determined like an army fighting for freedom of their homeland: THUNDERWAR! The band was born in 2013, when four young Metal maniacs decided to join their forces to not only pay  tribute to such Metal heroes as BATHORY, UNLEASHED, DISSECTION and AMON AMARTH, but to prove that Poland has again something to say to the metal world.

The debut EP “THE BIRTH OF THUNDER” was  mixed and produced by Wieslawscy Bros from HERTZ STUDIO (BEHEMOTH, VADER, DECAPITATED). The band’s logo was designed by Christophe Szpajdel (EMPEROR, MOONSPELL, DESASTER) and the cover artwork of “The Birth of Thunder” EP was done by Mario Lopez.

Currently the band is promoting their self-released EP and in the middle of 2014 will enter the HERTZ STUDIO to work on their first  full album. THUNDERWAR – Better remember this name, as they are here to stay!

Critical Praise:

“This is just awesome death metal filled with great riffs, pounding drums and fat bass lines” – Metalrecusants 

“Taking cues mainly from Vader, Unleashed, and – what’s this? Yes, a little bit of Rust In Peace Megadeth – this Polish four pack bring van Drunen-barking atop femur-slicing, razor-sharp riffage that recalls speed metal with class” – Worm Gear Zine

THE KENNEDY VEIL – Sacramento Death Metal Behemoths Preach Their “Necrotic Gospel”

The Kennedy Veil - The Trinity Of Falsehood - promo album pic - 2013

Sacramento Death Metal behemoths, THE KENNEDY VEIL, today spew forth the teachings of their “Necrotic Gospel.” Hosted by the crypt keepers at Stereokiller, the latest tune comes courtesy of the band’s soon-to-be-released Trinity Of Falsehood full-length.

Produced by Nick Botelho at NB Recording in Santa Rosa, California and featuring the debut of new throat Taylor Wientjes, Trinity Of Falsehood is an unapologetically methodical, fast-paced display of sharp, groin-churning DM brutality. In a 9/10 review of the offering, Dead Rhetoric champions the band’s, “no-frills, modern death metal… heavily rooted in the speed and technicality of Origin and the fury of Decapitated,” further boasting, “THE KENNEDY VEIL has thrown down the death metal gauntlet for years to come.

Trinity Of Falsehood is a scorcher,” Heavy Metal Tribune notes, “The high-speed and furious intensity that the band provides on Trinity of Falsehood easily reminds one of band’s such as Hour of Penance, Psycroptic and Origin, and this especially so with the ease of fusion of technicality, brutality and melody…,” while Metal Temple, in an 8/10 rating, adds, “The thing that… separates THE KENNEDY VEIL from the pack is the fact that there are definite hooks among the relentless displays of technical prowess…”

Elaborates bassist Shawn Patrick Peterson of their latest taste of torment: “‘Necrotic Gospel’ is essentially 250 bpms of stripped-down, unconditional hatred. The lyrical content is based on the manipulation of the masses by a higher power; of being misled. The loyalty in betrayal is preached as a means of an awakening of the senses, and coming to the realization that there is nothing beyond the veil that covers your eyes.”

Melt your innards to the sounds of “Necrotic Gospel,” now playing at Stereokiller at THIS LOCATION.

Additionally, fans can still rape their faces to the sounds of “Enslave.Defile.Erase.,” currently streaming at Revolver HERE. Amazon preview clips of the entire record can be accessed HERE.

Merging influences of classic DM legends like Deicide, Morbid Angel and Suffocation with the more refined aggression of bands like Origin, Psycroptic and Decapitated, THE KENNEDY VEIL features within their ranks Wientjes and Peterson alongside guitarist KC Childers (ex-Forktung) and drummer Gabe Seeber (Alterbeast, Decrepit Birth, ex-Wretched Dawn). Together they invoke their own brand of crushing Death Metal. No throwbacks, no breakdowns, no wanking, no trends. With Unique Leader as the catalyst, humanity is about to be reduced to ashes.

Trinity Of Falsehood will be released worldwide on January 21, 2014 via Unique Leader Records. Preorder your copy today at THIS LOCATION.

CORPSESSED – Full-Length Debut “Abysmal Thresholds” Coming Feburary 4th On Dark Descent Records

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , on January 4, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Corpsessed - Abysmal Thresholds - promo cover pic

Dark Descent Records will unleash hell upon Earth in the form of Abysmal Thresholds, the full-length debut from Finland’s CORPSESSED.

After terrorizing your ear drums with 2011′s The Dagger and the Chalice and 2012′s self-titled 7-inch, CORPSESSED are poised to thoroughly decimate what’s left of your auditory senses. Abysmal Thresholds is over 47 minutes of Death Metal the way you’ve come to expect from this hard-hitting Finnish band. No fluff, no hyperbole…this is destined to be one of the best albums of 2014, without a doubt. Abysmal Thresholds is set for release on February 4th.

Pre-orders are being taken now at: www.darkdescentrecords.com.

Corpsessed was spawned from putrescent slime in 2007. Vocalist Niko Matilainen, guitarist Matti Mäkelä and drummer Jussi-Pekka Manner were joined by guitarist Jyri Lustig and (de)composing of morbid Death Metal tunes began at the rotting houses of Järvenpää delta-area. The group’s original bass player, Mikko Mäkelä, disappeared in unknown circumstances and was replaced later in 2009 by Mikko Pöllä.

Corpsessed’s first EP The Dagger & The Chalice was released on CD by Dark Descent Records (USA) in May 2011. The vinyl version released by Me Saco Un Ojo (UK) in co-operation with Dark Descent (USA) in October 2011. That release was followed up by a two-track, self-titled 7-inch EP in 2012. The band recently completed work on their debut full-length album, Abysmal Thresholds.

TRENCHROT – To Release Debut Album “Necronomic Warfare” On Unspeakable Axe Records

Trenchrot - Necronomic Warfare - promo cover pic - 2014

Death Metal war machine TrenchRot are unleashing their debut Necronomic Warfare upon the world and none will be spared. With influences ranging from other war-themed bands like Asphyx and Bolt Thrower, to the vomitous vocals and epic, soaring lead work of Obituary’s Cause of Death, this is an old school Death Metal album that doesn’t feel self-conscious about being what it is.  It just crushes everything in its path, and leaves the bloodied listener staggering away… and grinning ear to ear.

Members are in other promising new bands, such as Crypt Sermon – whose first demo will see a cassette release from Dark Descent Records soon – and Infiltrator, and promise to soon be well-known names in the underground.

Necronomic Warfare is set for a February 18 release on Unspeakable Axe Records.

Check out album cut “Sickening Devotion” below!

THUNDERWAR BIO:

Cold as ice, angry as a horde of Viking warriors and determined like an army fighting for freedom of their homeland: THUNDERWAR! The band was born in 2013, when four young metal maniacs decided to join their forces to not only pay tribute to such Metal heroes as BATHORY, UNLEASHED, DISSECTION and AMON AMARTH, but to prove that Poland once again has something to say to the Metal world.

The band’s debut EP “THE BIRTH OF THUNDER” was mixed and produced by the Wieslawscy Bros from HERTZ STUDIO (BEHEMOTH, VADER, DECAPITATED). Their logo was designed by Christophe Szpajdel (EMPEROR, MOONSPELL, DESASTER) and the cover artwork of “The Birth of Thunder” EP was created by Mario Lopez.

SLAUGHTERDAY Live:

12/07 @ Nocturnus Fest Vol. 3 @ K17 – Berlin

Critical Praise:

“Germany’s Slaughterday have the gumption (and instinct) to take T. Gabriel Fischer’s get-up-and-say-Hey! vox, back it with tested-and-true Oakland CA death/doom found in the collection of every serial killer, and inject the mishmash with a Swedish melodic sensibility cultivated from the early ’90s to present.” - Worm Gear ‘Zine
