Nihilo - dum spiro spero - promo cover pic - 2014

Swiss Death Metal titan’s NIHILO have just launched a campaign to fund the vinyl release of their latest album Dum Spiro Spero.

Originally released on CD this past spring, many fans have been clamoring for a definitive vinyl edition of the album. As a result, the band are seeking to raise the funds via crowdfunding. You can help fund the project and see the rewards on offer here:  https://wemakeit.com/projects/dum-spiro-spero-on-vinyl

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

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 - European Tour - 2014 - promo flyer

CRYPTOPSY is an Extreme Metal band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. During the past twenty years, CRYPTOPSY have wreaked havoc throughout the Metal genre by releasing six studio albums (Blasphemy Made Flesh, None So Vile, Whisper Supremacy, And Then You’ll Beg, Once Was Not and The Unspoken King), a live album (None So Live) and an EP (Ungentle Exhumation), which have confronted and invigorated the conventional approach to writing extreme music. In 2012, CRYPTOPSY returned to their roots in order to craft their newest endeavor entitled CRYPTOPSY.

ICED EARTH – Jon Schaffer’s Update On His Improving Health

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on August 24, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Iced Earth - large classic logo - #5

As written/told by the legendary Jon Schaffer and posted on the ICED EARTH Facebook:

“Hello brothers and sisters,

I’m writing to let you know that I’m healing very well. I played guitar a few weeks ago for the first time, and it immediately felt like the surgery worked. Needless to say, I was very relieved. Through many months of the Worldwide Plagues Tour I was suffering from a loss of coordination in my hands, numbness, and intense levels of pain. It was a battle every night onstage and it reached a critical point where the cervical fusion had to happen, sooner rather than later. I am happy to report that so far things are going very well in my recovery, and I expect it to stay on this path. We are in the planning stages of our next US tour, and that will very likely take place this winter. So, before you know it we’ll be back on the warpath, and before long, songwriting will commence, and another chapter of Iced Earth history will be in the making. There will be lots of updates in the coming months. We are forging the attack as I am recovering from surgery. The boys and I are ready to get back out there ASAP to lay down the metal!

Thanks so much for your concern and support!”

A one-man project of Chris Balch, Nostril Caverns play a strange fusion of death, black, grind, mathrock, prog and free improv. Fans of more experimental music such as Mr. Bungle should love the bizarre music of Nostril Caverns.

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!
