FERIUM – Studio Update For Upcoming Concept Album: ‘Behind The Black Eyes’

Israeli Metal outfit FERIUM are hard at work in the studio working on their upcoming concept album, Behind the Black Eyes. Video footage from the recording sessions can be viewed at this location.

Behind The Black Eyes greatly expands the concept first introduced on FERIUM’s debut album Reflections. The connection between the two albums is evident in part by the inclusion of a new track titled “Reflections,” while the debut album contained the song “The Black Eyes.” 

Behind The Black Eyes is the story of one man’s deteriorating relationship from beginning to end; from promising beginnings to the bitter end. Musically, Behind the Black Eyes raises the intensity level and deepens the impact with powerful riffs and melodic atmospheric parts, ensuring that nary a listener is left unaffected by the experience. Behind the Black Eyes is one again being produced and recorded by FERIUM guitarist Boxer at his very own Boxer Studio.

CRYPTIC HYMN – Offer Free Download Of New Track ‘Revel In Disgust’ Plus Show Dates

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, rock music with tags , , , on January 29, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Cryptic Hymn - promo band pic - #2015CHMO1

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

TAKEN BY THE SUN: Chicago Progressive Post-Metal Doom Gazers To Release Debut Full-Length

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

Taken By The Sun - promo album cover pic - #2015TBTSMO3

Chicago progressive post metal doom/gaze collective, TAKEN BY THE SUN, will release their debut full-length next month. Tracked almost exclusively live at Electrical Audio (with “Confessions Of An Opium Eater” recorded at Studio 54 Music Zone), engineered by Sanford Parker (Twilight, Voivod, Eyehategod, Yob etc.) and mastered by Collin Jordan (Eyehategod, Indian, Wovenhand, Voivod etc.) at The Boiler Room, all in Chicago, Taken By The Sun is monolithic in its delivery boasting a sprawling, eight-track, forty-two minute sound expedition.

Multilayered, nuanced, gristly and meticulously arranged, thick gnarled riffs coil around gravel-throated voice incursions, the planet rumbles, tracks heave like the sky is breaking. Aggressive yet cathartic, at times otherworldly, TAKEN BY THE SUN recalls the confounding atmospheres of veteran sound contortionists Neurosis, Isis, Pelican, Rosetta, Mouth Of the Architect, Red Sparowes, and The Ocean without replicating them.

Taken By The Sun – Track Listing:

1. Scars
2. Demons Tempt the Dying Man with Crowns
3. Fuse
4. Red
5. Detached
6. Volatile
7. Confessions of an Opium Eater
8. Ornaflux

Forged in 2011, TAKEN BY THE SUN, a moniker representing decay and rebirth, is a Chicago Metal band rooted within The Windy City’s venue-shaking, riff-worshipping doom and stoner metal traditions. At the core of their sound there lies fuzz-addled guitars, grinding bass, cavernous drums, and dry-throated vocals fused with prog metal acrobatics, lush vocal harmonies, and pedal steel twang to heighten the intensity and plain epicness of their compositions. And now, with their self-titled debut, TAKEN BY THE SUN is able to convey the energy and diversity of their music in recorded form.

Taken By The Sun - promo album cover pic - #2015TBTSMO3

Recorded live with only minimal subsequent overdubs, the album is faithful to both the earnestness and magnitude of the band’s sound. TAKEN BY THE SUN is William Arroyo, Patrick Auclair, Justin Cape, Mark Cichra, and Kris Ziemlo.

Taken By The Sun will be released independently on February 24th via the official TAKEN BY THE SUN BandCamp page at THIS LOCATION.

UNREST – To Release ‘Grindcore’ On Unspeakable Axe Records March 24th

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

 Unrest - Grindcore - promo album cover pic - #2015UMO

Philadelphia/Brooklyn grinders UNREST have debuted new track “Quit” from upcoming album Grindcore. Check out the exclusive stream and an interview with the band at http://apochs.net/2/i-unrest/.

Grindcore will be released on Unspeakable Axe Records March 24.  

If the band name doesn’t spell it out for you, the album title surely will.  This is nothing but grindcore – stripped down, unpretentious, and loud.  At the same time, it’s much more than that. UNREST is comprised of craftsmen from bands both familiar (WOE, TRENCHROT and those about to be (Dark Descent’s up-and-coming doom act, CRYPT SERMON).

The riff and song construction throughout this debut album is right in line from what you’d expect from a group of such capable veterans.  They wear their NASUM (and by proxy, NAPALM DEATH) influence on their sleeves, but through sheer mastery of the craft elevate the material well beyond a mere tribute to old masters. Check out the track “Anything to Shock” at this location.
