Melodic Death Metal band LAIKA are proud to announce they will be holding their local CD release party for ‘Somnia’ (out Sept 30th via Filth Regime Records) in Winnipeg, MB on October 11th at The Windsor Hotel (187 Garry Street) with local support from Tyrants Demise, Mortalis, Withdrawal, and Occvlt Hand. Admission is $10 with the first 25 people in the door receive a free copy of ‘Somnia’.

“This is a momentous occasion for us all because not only are we celebrating the release of Somnia we are also celebrating 5 years as a band, we will be playing Somnia in full and a cover or two. We are absolutely thrilled to have such a stellar lineup for the evening. Hope to see you all out for the grand celebration!” comments vocalist Jordan Dorge.

The band has unleashed two tracks for fans from the upcoming release ‘The Immortal’ and ‘Escalation of Terror’. Both can be heard below.

“The immortal is a track that touches the subject of the capacity of human strength. How far ones willing to go and pushing that thought until it leads to loss of life or some other extreme.  Something we all witness in day-to-day life.  This track is one of our favorites on the album and really shows the dynamic that Laika has as a whole.” comments vocalist Jordan Dorge.

LAIKA – Escalation of Terror

Album Pre-Order - https://laikawpg.bandcamp.com/

Founded in 2009 as a six-piece and named after the Soviet dog who became one of the first animals to travel to space, the band unleashed a self-released album in 2010, then hit the road, sharing the stage with the likes of All Shall Perish, Kataklysm, Necronomicon and Unleash the Archers, before temporarily backing away from the spotlight.

Driven by a thirst for evolution, LAIKA spent two years constructing and writing its upcoming full-length album, ‘Somnia’, filling it with melodic hooks, ominous keys and lyrics that are bound to get stuck in listeners’ heads to an almost maddening degree. Brace yourself, as this fall; LAIKA will hit the scene hard, just like they did all those years ago.

ANNIHILATION – Reveal Details About New EP

Posted in Death Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on August 28, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Annihilation - promo band pic - 2014 - #44940

Portugal’s best known Death Metal band ANNIHILATION are proud to announce that their new EP The Undivided will be released on November 4th 2014. Containing 6 tracks of absolutely punishing Death Metal, The Undivided is a stunning follow-up to the band’s debut album. A single from the EP, entitled “The Great Cycle” was released a few months ago as a digital download.

Listen to “The Great Cycle” here: http://annihilationband.bandcamp.com/track/the-great-cycle

The band’s founder Fabio Da Silva released the following statement about the EP:

“We are proud to announce the release of our new EP The Undivided. Consisting of six songs, the EP is a precursor to our next full-length which will be one song connected by three parts. We have been working  on these songs for the last two years and there is a big evolution between this EP and our first album Against The Storm. The songs are more technical, dissonant and intricate than our debut album. Lyrically I spent a lot of time researching and working on the lyrics. The EP and the album focus on my vision about humanity as energy beings all connected to one source of energy. One conscious entity that connects all beings into one. An entity that has been separated from his source and originated the human species, the voyage of part of that consciousness when the human being faces death and finally connects again with the source.”

PRAISE FOR DUM SPIRO SPERO:

For those who enjoy good underground extreme metal, this may be just the release you’ve been waiting for. – Sea of Tranqulity

Nihilo do a nice line in punky, primitive speed, which really reminds me of Autopsy, early Carcass and their ilk, as well as large slices of filthy, blasting grind. – Ave Noctum

SEMPITERNAL DUSK – Debut Full-length Coming 9/30 On Dark Descent Records

Posted in Death Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on August 25, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Sempiternal Dusk - promo cover pic - 2014

On September 30, Portland Death Metal act SEMPITERNAL DUSK will release their highly anticipated full-length on Dark Descent Records.

After a vicious demo assault in 2012, the band is set to make their presence known across the underground with this self-titled,five track, forty-seven minute affair. If you like doom in your Death Metal, SEMPITERNAL DUSK will be most pleasing to your taste.

Pre-orders for Sempiternal Dusk on CD and vinyl formats are now available at www.darkdescentrecords.com/store.

SEMPITERNAL DUSK emerged after the demise of WARWOLVES in 2009, with J.Huss switching from bass to guitar and T. Call again behind the kit. The duo began writing, focusing on abyssal atmosphere and primal instincts to guide their doomed Death Metal. In 2011 they recorded a two-song demo with J.Huss recording all guitars and bass and T. Call on drums and vocals. Their demo spread and caught the attention of Dark Descent, who inked a deal with the band for release of a full-length.

The band also contributed a one-minute track, “Beneath the Emblems of Death” to the MONOMANIAC VOL. 1 7 released by Blastbeat Mailmurder from Greece. This would be the last song recorded as a duo. The decision was then made to fill out the lineup and become a live band. T. Gann of SHROUD OF THE HERETIC joined on bass and A. Wheeler of WEREGOAT/RITUAL NECROMANCY joined on second guitar.

The first live ritual occurred in February of 2013 along with VASSAFOR and KNELT ROTE. In August 2013 they entered Red Lantern Studios in Portland, OR to record their debut full length. SEMPITERNAL DUSK, now a three-piece, will be performing a few select live rituals this fall in support of their album release, then entering the studio in late September to begin recording their side of an upcoming split with Seattle’s OLD SKIN.

CRYPTOPSY is an Extreme Metal band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

In 2012, CRYPTOPSY returned to their roots in order to craft their newest endeavor entitled CRYPTOPSY.

SUBSERVIENCE – Reveal New Record Details

Posted in Death Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on August 23, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Subservience - promo band pic - 2014 - #9420

Sussex quintet Subservience have been gathering a great reputation across their native UK and beyond with their corrosive blend of groove laden Extreme Metal since forming in 2010. Having already released a demo ‘Blueprint To Chaos’ in 2010, a split with Sa-da-KO in 2011 and two crushing EP’s ‘Dystopia’ and ‘Ripped In Half’ in 2012 and 2013 respectively; Subservience are right on queue and are set to unleash yet another beast of a record.

‘Upheaval’, recorded at Brighton Electric, is the title of the band’s forthcoming EP and is set for release on 17th October 2014. The track listing is as follows.

1) Upheaval

2) Inhuman Savagery

3) Slither

4) Divine Malevolence

Talented Indonesian artist Krisna Widiathama was commissioned for the ‘Upheaval’ cover art, which can be seen below.

Speaking of ‘Upheaval’, which the band claim is their heaviest effort to date, guitarist Ryan Jardine comments: “Previously our lyrics had been firmly based on reality but now, with our new vocalist [Dan Lofthouse], we have taken inspiration from works of fiction and combined this with real life experiences. Musically, we really wanted to expand on everything we’ve done before, to push ourselves further and add more technicality, yet making sure we didn’t lose the all-important groove people know us for. Everyone in the band has been fully involved with the new material. We all have a vast range of influences and it’s just been about bringing this all together.”

Drawing influence from the classic Death Metal bands of yesteryear as well as the recent breed of modern greats you will find no self-indulgent displays here; Subservience have put on a stage show that certainly pulls no punches. Brimming over with concentrated fury and a taste for chaos, they have been met with a great reception amongst their ever-growing fan base. Their live show has earned them a reputation as one of the heaviest bands on the south coast, and has rewarded them with slots at Download Festival 2013 and Hammerfest III, as well as sharing bills with underground heavyweights Blood Red Throne, Xerath, Mortad, Bloodshot Dawn, Hour of Penance, Demonic Resurrection, Flayed Disciple and Eye of Solitude.

BE PREPARED!
