Vile Regression - Free Music - Empires - album promo flyer - 2014

Yes, you did read it right, Irish tech metallers Vile Regression have just announced the release of their brand new record ‘Empires’ and it’s free for all.

Guitarist Brian Brady comments: “We’ve been blown away by the positive feedback we have received from the online metal community and printed metal press for ‘Empires’. The reviews have been incredibly positive and at this stage we want as many people to hear the record as possible! On top of this, the EP has already become available to download on various blogs and torrent sites, so rather than metal fans downloading a poor quality version, we want them to be able to download a full quality release of ‘Empires’, along with the artwork, lyrics and be able to share the download link with their friends. We hope people will enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it and look forward to seeing many of you on the road in 2015. Happy Christmas from Vile Regression!”

Praise For Vile Regression:

“The talent coming out of Ireland has been nothing short of staggering, and this Dublin-based crew are up there with the best of them.” – Zero Tolerance

ABOUT VILE REGRESSION:

Formed from the ashes of Irish extreme metal outfit Vistor Q; Vile Regression hit the scene in 2010 and released their debut record ‘The Pattern Evolves’ in 2011, via Casket Music.

After sharing stages with prolific heavyweights such as Dyscarnate, Fleshgod Apocalypse and Unearth, Vile Regression built a reputation as a tight and energetic new addition to the extreme metal underground and 2013 saw the band head back to the studio to record a new installment… ‘Empires’.

‘Empires’ was recorded at Trackmix Studio in Dublin, Ireland with producer Michael Richards and features 7 tracks of extreme metal; technical, yet not technical for the sake of it; with songs that would bode well on the ears of those with a penchant for progressive metal on the darker and heavier end. The record was officially released on July 21st, 2014.

Lamentations Of The Ashen Announce New Album Release Date

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on December 16, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Lamentations Of The Ashen - Libertine Cyst - promo cover pic

Libertine Cyst To Release On January 20, 2015

LAMENTATIONS OF THE ASHEN, the blackened Doom Metal project of Bon Vincent Fry, will release their long-awaited album Libertine Cyst on January 20 2015.

Consisting of four epic tracks, Libertine Cyst is the follow-up to 2011’s EKIMMV. In regards to the album, Bon has released the following statement:

“Finally, after 3 years, I am pleased to present my 3rd full-length album, ‘Libertine Cyst’ to the world. This album was the most challenging thing I’ve ever had to do musically. I was dealt an endless amount of obstacles (some self-created) which constantly resulted in delaying my progress. I feel that this record stands as a testament that the path of maximum resistance produces a more thoroughly honed work of art. I think the material contained here marks a new height in my song writing and atmosphere for this project. It’s hard to express how pleased and relieved I am to finally have this behind me and shift my gaze even further into the blackness beyond the stars. This is where it ends for me, and starts for everyone else.”

Praise for past Lamentations of the Ashen albums:

“After many repeated listens, I’m fucking way beyond just impressed! Every song on this album is a dark majestic voyage to a universe where the evil thoughts of others are murdered by our protective black dragons.”- Cvlt Nation

“Stirring the aether with bleak and depressive anthems of blackened doom, Lamentations of the Ashen achieves wonder in an audio sea of woe.”- Worm Gear zine

KOUZIN BEDLAM – Debut Album “Longing For The Incomplete” Is Available Now!

Posted in Metal, metal bands, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , on December 9, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Kouzin Bedlam - Longing for the incomplete - promo album cover

Kouzin Bedlam is a baroque painting painted in the colors of Heavy Metal. It is highly technical and deeply embedded in mythology; it is sometimes over the top, yet always lyrical and sublime. Its extraordinary qualities lie not just in terms of song writing and technical ability. In fact, Kouzin Bedlam is not just a band; it is a philosophy, it is a family; it is psychology and spirituality expressed in a musical extravaganza with surprising depths.

Carl Gustav Jung uncovered the archetypes dwelling in our collective unconscious. Our image of a great mother, the devil, God, the trickster and the hero all sit deep inside our minds. And then there is Kouzin Bedlam – the unknown twin, the uncivilized ”I”, we all try to ignore. The band’s debut album, Longing for the Incomplete (produced by Jimmy Westerlund), releases this being upon the conscious world. Kouzin Bedlam does its entrance in a blaze of virtuosic Heavy Metal, at times highly aggressive, at others bittersweet and melancholic. Lyrically it does everything from cursing its very existence to learning how to breathe.

Kouzin Bedlam Promo

As mentioned, Kouzin Bedlam has so far been unknown to the world of conscious human thoughts, but the members of the band are all experienced musicians, artists and doomsday philosophers.

The debut album Longing For The Incomplete was released December 5th by Inverse Records. Listen to album on spotify Kouzin Bedlam – Longing for the Incomplete.

Dire Omen - Wrestling The Revelation Of Futility - promo cover pic - 2014

Wresting the Revelation of Futility from Canadian Black/Death Metallers DIRE OMEN is out now on Dark Descent Records. Order it at this location.

Stream the album in its entirety and/or purchase the digital download at:

Characterized by a progression towards the chaotic, opaque darkness that now permeates their sound, the history of the Canadian Black/Death Metallers has led to the establishment of an undeniable identity, most evident on this debut album. Utilizing abyssal, morose imagery combined with a strong sense of Thelemic ritualism, DIRE OMEN has developed a unique take on the Black/Death genre.

Onward with Wounds of Disillusion

Ossuary

Hemotically Possessed

Servus Sevorum Dei

Critical Praise:

“A stupendously powerful release that fulfills the promise that was evident in the band’s previous shorter releases.” – No Clean Singing

“Dire Omen is a black cauldron of monochromatic squalor, punishing and gripping at the same time.” – PopMatters
