Minotauro Records To Release New OGRE Album “The Last Neanderthal”

Posted in doom metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , on February 20, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Ogre - The Last Neanderthal - promo cover pic - 2014

Recharged Italian label Minotauro Records has announced the upcoming release of The Last Neanderthal from Portland, Maine’s Heavy Metal Doom rockers OGRE on February 21, in Europe and March 8 in North America.

The band’s fourth full-length release continues OGRE’s splendid combination of classic proto-metal (BLACK SABBATH, BUDGIE, DUST), a touch of ’70s prog rock (most notably RUSH), and a heaping dose of vintage doom (SAINT VITUS, PENTAGRAM). The Last Neanderthal even includes a cover of “Soulless Woman” by a different OGRE, a ’70s bar band from the Pacific Northwest.

The Last Neanderthal – Track Listing:

Shadow Earth

Nine Princes in Amber

Bad Trip

Son of Sisyphus

Soulless Woman

Warpath

White Plume Mountain

The Hermit

 __________________________

Check out the video for album cut “Nine Princes In Amber” below:

OGRE will celebrate the release of The Last Neanderthal with a CD Release show on March 14, at Geno’s Rock Club in Portland, Maine. For show details, click HERE.

OGRE History:

OGRE formed in 1999 when Ed Cunningham (bass/vocals) joined forces with Ross Markonish (guitar) and Will Broadbent (drums), who had been playing together in several bands in the Portland, Maine music scene.  Together, Ed, Ross, and Will quickly wrote and recorded a 4-track demo cassette that garnered high praise in the underground Doom Metal and Stoner-rock community.

In 2003, the band self-released its first full length, Dawn of the Proto-Man, to critical acclaim. The disc created enough buzz to get noticed by Japan’s Leafhound Records, who put out the band’s second and third albums, Seven Hells in 2006 and Plague of the Planet in 2008, the latter album being reissued by Shadow Kingdom Records in 2009. After a decade of playing shows up and down the East Coast as well abroad (Japan Tour with Church of Misery and Blood Farmers in 2008), OGRE returned to its cave in September 2009.

Coaxed out of hibernation after several years, the band played a handful of local shows and began writing new material that would eventually comprise its fourth album, The Last Neanderthal, to be released by Minotauro Records (Italy) in March 2014.  As one of the first currently active bands to be signed to the newly-recharged Minotauro, OGRE is ready to stampede into the next phase of its career.

DESCEND INTO DESPAIR – Romanian Funeral Doom Collective To Release New Long Player Via Domestic Genocide: New Hymn Now Playing

Posted in doom metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , on January 24, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

descend into despair - the bearer of all storms - promo cover pic - 2014

Romanian funeral doom collective, DESCEND INTO DESPAIR, is pleased to join the eccentric Domestic Genocide roster for the release of their forthcoming full-length, The Bearer Of All Storms. Melodic yet fragmented and led by the anguished growls of Denis Ungurean, the record is a primitive, thoroughly cheerless voyage through the various sounds and shades of suffering and despair, their grim, disconcerting hymns of negativity proving both elegant and suffocating.

Sink into the sorrow of teaser track “Mirrors Of Flesh” below:

The Bearer Of All Storms Track Listing:

1. Portrait of Rust

2. Mirrors of Flesh

3. Pendulum of Doubt

4. Triangle of Lies

5. The Horrific Pale Awakening

6. Plânge glia de dorul meu

7. Embrace of Earth

Forged in 2010 in the dismal town of Radauti, Romania, DESCEND INTO DESPAIR aims to consume its listeners with a pervading sense of melancholy, their lyrical themes teetering somewhere between hope for a better tomorrow and imminent societal collapse, the downward spiral of mankind playing the most prominent role in their source of forlorn inspiration. Over the course of four years and varying lineups, the band – now featuring Alex Cozaciuc (lead guitars, programming, drums, keyboards), Denis Ungurean (vocals, ex-Donkerland), Iulia Bulancea (bass), Orza Radu (drums), Cosmin Farcău (rhythm guitars) and Florentin Popa (keyboards) – has released one demo, one EP and the “Hierophant Of The Night” single written in memory of Lifelover’s Jonas Bergqvist, each offering proving more traumatic than the next both in sound and spirit.

The Bearer Of All Storms will be released via Domestic Genocide Records on January 28, 2014. Order your copy today at THIS LOCATION.

Shadow Kingdom Records Releases Rare RUN AFTER TO Recordings

Posted in doom metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , on January 13, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Run After To - promo cover pic - 2014

Shadow Kingdom Records has unearthed and released a collection of obscure and virtually unknown ’80s Italian Doom Metal from RUN AFTER TO.

A split release entitled Run After To/Gjinn and Djinn that includes the band’s lone 1988 self-titled EP and the 1985 Gjinn and Djinn demo is now available worldwide on digital and CD formats. The songs have been remastered and the CD package contains some amazing band photos and a complete biography.

With the strange name came some strange songs as well. These old dusty recordings are literally impossible to find except for a low quality upload on YouTube. Fans of old 80’s Doom Metal like PAUL CHAIN VIOLET THEATRE, BLACK HOLE, and DEATH SS will absolutely love this package. Those not as familiar with Italian Doom Metal will have their interest piqued by comparisons to the likes of BLACK SABBATH, SAINT VITUS, CANDLEMASS and TROUBLE. RUN AFTER TO is one of those bands who has gone criminally unnoticed thanks to a career cut too short.

Stream the album in full and purchase at: shadowkingdomrecords.bandcamp.com.
