Formed in July 2014, Paducah, Kentucky’s CRYPTIC HYMN forge Blackened Death Metal that’s diverse with its aggressive, grim and melodic approach. Featuring ex-Voyage of Slaves members Dave Palenske, Jon Grace, and Nathaniel Vowell as well as Josh Mumford of Anagnorisis, the band is currently in pre-production working on their debut release. In the meantime, they have unleashed their first single ‘Revel In Disgust’ at the following links below to show fans what they have brewing for 2015.

“We are proud and very excited to premiere our new single. “Revel In Disgust” is an up front outlook on humanity. The theme of the song is about learning from the negativity one experiences in life and setting yourself aside from it, or against it in effort to rise above it. We think it’s important to address issues that exist in reality, but those issues can also be interpreted through metaphors based on themes of fantasy or science fiction, for example. This is only a taste of things to come as we have big plans for 2015. Be prepared to catch us on the road in the near future! Cheers everyone!” – Cryptic Hymn

BEHEMOTH – To Release Official Biography Via Metal Blade Records

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, rock music with tags , , on January 28, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Behemoth - Biography - promo book pic - #2015BMO

Behemoth: Devil’s Conquistadors by Łukasz Dunaj serves as the definitive BEHEMOTH biography. The book, officially blessed, or rather damned, by BEHEMOTH, serves as an in-depth look at the history of the events that materially influenced the band. As Dunaj points out in the intro, this isn’t, “Poland’s response to Motley Crüe’s biography The Dirt.” Simply put, Behemoth: Devil’s Conquistadors is the story of BEHEMOTH, their music, their ultimate rise to the upper echelon of metal and becoming a household name in their native homeland, Poland.

A 490-page, hardcover tome that is being released by Metal Blade Records in February, Behemoth: Devil’s Conquistadors includes quotes and anecdotes from current and former members that provide context and details in addition to the author’s narrative, plus interviews with Tomas Krajewski, Rob Darken, Graal, Havok, and more. The artistically presented pages are splattered with old photos of the band, flyers, lyric sheets etc. Preorders are available now at metalblade.com/behemoth, and include a bundle with an exclusive shirt available ONLY with this preorder. The passages below serve as previews of the book.

From the foreword by Krzysztof Azarewicz: “If, as a cultural anthropologist, I were to point to a single cosmic force which BEHEMOTH’s music expresses, I would name it not Satan but Dionysus. A deity that represents not only the intoxicating influence of cosmic energies and earthly benefits, but also their benevolent healing properties. A deity of strength and pride. A deity of creative might.”

Nergal discusses the acquisition of his first electric guitar: “The first communion was a very important moment for me. I know this sounds ridiculous, but it’s true. Of course, not as a religion experience – I didn’t understand anything and couldn’t care less. Same as all the other kids. We all stood there with our votive candles and waited for one thing. Cash. The first communion must be one moment when you get the most money you’re ever going to get as a child. And for this money, I bought myself my first electric guitar. Not a bike, no Legos – a guitar.”

In related news, BEHEMOTH is currently leveling stages throughout North America on a mammoth co-headlining tour with legendary death metal practitioners/labelmates, Cannibal Corpse. The month-long Winter live takeover kicks off today in New Orleans, Louisiana and will wind its way through nearly three-dozen cities, coming to a close on March 7th in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Support comes from two of Sweden’s finest metal exports: Aeon and Tribulation.

ABOUT FERIUM:

Formed in 2006, FERIUM were initially inspired by Pantera and Lamb Of God but over time influence from the likes of Textures, Gojira, Death and more found its way into their sound. 2009 saw their first EP The New Law which gained the band international recognition, enabling them to play large local events such as Summer Carnage and Hallelujah, along with shows outside of their homeland, including Wacken 2009. 2013 saw the band return to tour Europe/UK supporting The Agonist and Threat Signal. Featuring cover art by Eliran Kantor (Hatebreed, Sodom, Atheist), Reflections is the culmination of four years of hard work, pain, passion, anger and hatred and the results are not for the faint-hearted.

New Voice of the Soul Song Streaming Now!

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , on January 11, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Voice Of The Soul - promo band image - #2014DM

Dubai extreme metallers Voice of the Soul have today released a brand new song entitled ‘Pendulum’ from their forthcoming debut album ‘Catacombs’. The album will be released on 27th March 2015 distributed via UK label Hell’s Hammer & India’s Transcending Obscurity.

Listen to ‘Pendulum’ Here!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNFZWxxJc-U

Vocalist and guitarist Kareem Chehayeb talks about the song, “This is song was inspired by the mass suicide of Jonestown that took place in 1978, but the lyrical content applies to so many political groups and cults whose leaders exploit the poor and disenfranchised for their own gain.”

The artwork (as seen below) was designed by Syrian Dubai-based artist Hamood Hallak of MHD Graphics, and was inspired by the concept of ‘Pendulum’.

Kareem elaborates: “While it appears evident that there is a priest/figure leading sheep, the cliff that they are about to walk off is within the temple itself. We don’t specify whether it’s religious or not, because religion isn’t the sole focus. It’s political, it’s social.”

Voice Of The Soul - Catacombs - promo album cover pic - 2014

First formed in Kuwait on the opposite side of the Persian Gulf in late 2007 17 year-old Kareem Chehayeb and 16 year-old Monish Shringi released their first EP, ‘Winds of Apprehension’ in July 2009 with second EP, ‘Eyes of Deceit’ seeking the light of day the following summer. After playing several shows in Dubai since January 2011, the band opted to relocate to the most popular city and emirate in the UAE before releasing their third EP, ‘Into Oblivion’, live on SOS Heavy Metal Radio in Portugal in August 2011. ‘Into Oblivion’ was undoubtedly the bands most successful record with songs receiving regular airplay across the globe.

During April 2014, the band made home at Haven Studio with producer Hadi Sarieddine in Dubai and recorded their debut full-length album ‘Catacombs’.

‘Catacombs’ Track Listing:

1) Desolation

2) Perpetual Deception

3) Pendulum

4) Quarantine

5) Cold Rupture

6) The Mist

7) Perdition

8) Defiled

9) Images Subside
