Aeon Guitarist Ronnie Björnström Working On Debut ABHORRENT DECIMATION Album

Abhorrent Decimation - promo band pic - 2014 - #4498

Today, London-based Death Metal newcomers Abhorrent Decimation announce they are working with Ronnie Björnström of Enhanced Audio Productions (Garageland Studios, Sweden) on the bands highly anticipated debut album.

Following the success of the band’s debut EP ‘Infected Celestial Utopia’ via Cold Birth Records, numerous shows across the UK including a tour with Hour of Penance and a crushing performance at this years Bloodstock Open Air Festival, the band are delighted to share this news.

Vocalist Ashley Scott had this to say on the appointment of Ronnie, “Ronnie is responsible for one my favourite sounding records of all time! The first time I heard Aeon ‘Aeons Black’, I knew we had to get in touch with Ronnie about the album. I would not settle for anything less. We spent a little time talking about the goal and what we wanted to achieve with this record and it was clear to me that Ronnie was able to give us exactly what we wanted. Our EP was a great start but now is the time to step everything up, material, production, direction – this album has to put our name on the map and we are positive Ronnie is the man for job.”

Ronnie shared these words on the upcoming task ahead of him, “Abhorrent Decimation is a great band. It will be a fun project to work on for sure! We have had close contact to figure what direction we should aim for… It will be a killer album when it’s done. Ashley sent me the demo’s, the material was like I expected. Aggressive, punchy and overkill! I had to take a couple of beers after listening to it due to all the brutality in the tracks!”.

Ronnie has created incredible sounding records for the likes of Aeon, Zonaria, Gnawer, Bodyfarm and Persuader to name a few.

Watch ‘A Putrid Vision’ Taken From ‘Infected Celestial Utopia’

The band has attracted the support from many of the big names in the UK press and overseas with support coming in from Metal Hammer, Terrorizer, The Guardian, Team Rock, Total Rock, MetalMouth, PlanetMosh to name a few, the album is set to be a well received Death Metal offering.

“…This band has all the brutality and technical prowess required to make music this extreme detonate with maximum impact, but what they have that many of their peers don’t is memorable songs underpinned by huge grooves and an infectious sense of momentum. New song “Echoes Of The Vortex” suggests that the Londoners’ full-length debut will be one of 2015’s must-have Death Metal records… Fucking brilliant, basically…” (Dom Lawson – Metal Hammer)

POSTVORTA – Debut Album Out Now!

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , on September 18, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Postvorta - debut album cover promo pic - 2014

On September 16th, Bleeding Light Records released the debut album of Italy’s POSTVORTA.

 While there are many bands that traverse and explore the same terrain as heavy titans Neurosis and Isis, very few of those bands embrace these influences and yet do not feel like imitators. 



POSTVORTA, the pulverizing sextet from Ravenna, Italy are ones who incorporate a similar style as their influences, but move themselves and the listener through stunning corridors of sound that feels fresh. Bringing elements of Post-Metal, Hardcore and Doom into a swirling vortex of monolithic and earth-shaking heaviness.

The band creates beauty, destroys and rebuilds it in stunning and imaginative ways time and time again throughout their 70 minute debut offering. As beautiful as it is ferocious, ‘Beckoning Light We Will Set Ourselves on Fire’ commands the listener with authority
.

Initially self-released in May digitally, the band recently joined up with Bleeding Light Records who will issue the album on CD today.

Stream and purchase the album here:

 

https://bleedinglightrecords.bandcamp.com/album/beckoning-light-we-will-set-ourselves-on-fire 

PRAISE:



“A truly haunting and wonderful debut album that doesn’t come around often. Ignore this at your peril. An absolute must have album.” -The Sludgelord 



“Postvorta musically have everything you need to become a name to be reckoned with in the future.” – Subterraneanoheavy

ZERO DOWN – Signs To Minotauro Records; “No Limit To The Evil” Slated For Fall/Winter Release

______________________________

Seattle trad-metallers ZERO DOWN have signed to Minotauro Records and a fall/winter release is set for the release of their fourth album, tentatively titled No Limit to the Evil. Stay tuned for the release date.

After releasing their last CD independently, ZERO DOWN is now set and excited to release their next ripper on Minotauro Records in the Fall/Winter of 2014. Once again the band will be reuniting with Martin Feveyear (QOTSA, SCREAMING TREES, DUFF MCKEAGAN’S LOADED, etc) at Jupiter Studios in Seattle to lay down this beast and packaging will include artwork by the master of Metal art, Ed Repka (MEGADETH, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, DEATH, MISFITS, etc). Tentatively titled No Limit To The Evil, this new opus will feature ten new cuts and sure to be Minotauro’s heaviest release to date, so scream for me motherfuckers!

Zero Down - No Limit To The Evil - promo cover pic - 2014

Formed in 2002, ZERO DOWN consists of five veteran musicians from the Seattle Metal/Punk Rock scene that cast iron 70’s Arena Rock with classic NWOBHM guitar riffs to bring the old school Metal traditions to the present! Over the past decade ZERO DOWN have released three scorching slabs of their Metal Rock (Old Time Revival, Good Times At The Gates of Hell and Looking To Start A Riot) and shared the stage with a variety of national acts including UFO, MOTLEY CRUE, DIAMOND HEAD, Y&T, RAVEN, ACCEPT, GODSMACK, THE ACCUSED, THE SUPERSUCKERS, UDO, MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP, PRONG and PAUL DIANNO.

Critical Praise:

“Hands, er, down, Seattle’s Zero Down are America’s best unsigned band, and to be that, you gotta have more than one beer-bongin record of clanging rock God-ness, and well, Zero Down have two, 2005’s Old Time Revival and now this Ed Repka-painted ripper!”

- Martin Popoff (BWBK Magazine & Hard Radio.com)

“Chock full of bombastic blues-rock riffs and cocksure swagger. Imagine how Zeke, Scissorfight and Airbourne might sound if they got drunk and jammed together. It’s classic without sounding dated and reverential without sounding copyist.” – Caren Gibson (Metal Hammer Magazine)
