Born on this day in 1947, in the UK, was the pioneering Glam/Hard Rock legend: Marc Bolan. As a guitarist, singer and songwriter for T Rex, their 1972 single Bang A Gong, (Get It On) from the Electric Wizard album became a Top 10 hit in the US. Tragically, Marc Bolan passed away from injuries he sustained in a car accident, on September 16th, 1977.

With the upcoming release of LAIKA’s new album ‘Somnia’ on Sept 30th via Filth Regime Records, the Canadian melodic death metallers have teamed up with Decibel Magazine for the exclusive album stream at the following link:

http://www.decibelmagazine.com/featured/exclusive-album-stream-introducing-laikas-somnia/ 

“Long time coming to get to this point. Here it is. ‘Somnia’ in full. We are trying to find the words to express how ecstatic we are that it’s finally come. We have worked very hard in this album and we hope you enjoy it in full as much as we enjoyed creating it. We are proud to be teaming up with Decibel to bring you this full album stream.” comments vocalist Jordan Dorge.

Driven by a thirst for evolution, LAIKA spent two years constructing and writing its upcoming full-length album full with melodic hooks, ominous keys and lyrics that are bound to get stuck in listeners’ heads to an almost maddening degree.  Founded in 2009 and named after the Soviet dog who became one of the first animals to travel to space, the Winnipeg, MB six-piece return after a small hiatus since unleashing their self release in 2010 that saw the band hit the road hard and share the stage with the likes of All Shall Perish, Kataklysm, Necronomicon, Unleash the Archers and many more.  So brace yourself, as this fall, LAIKA will hit the scene hard, just like they did all those years ago.

In additional news, the band will be hosting their local CD release party in Winnipeg, MB on October 11th at The Windsor Hotel (187 Garry Street) with local support from Tyrants Demise, Mortalis, Withdrawal, and Occvlt Hand. Admission is $10 with the first 25 people in the door receive a free copy of ‘Somnia’.

“This is a momentous occasion for us all because not only are we celebrating the release of Somnia we are also celebrating 5 years as a band, we will be playing Somnia in full and a cover or two. We are absolutely thrilled to have such a stellar lineup for the evening.  Hope to see you all out for the grand celebration!” comments vocalist Jordan Dorge.

Inferion - This Will Decay - promo cover pic

Formed in 1995, INFERION have refined their intense sound and present their finest work to date. This epic 14-track, 55-minute majestic masterpiece is a vicious onslaught of Blackened Death Metal that crushes bone and penetrates flesh with the precision of a newly sharpened blade. Superior production quality tears through the many deep layers of this album to reveal complex lead guitar work, a wide array of vocal approaches and the relentless hyper blast of Carlos Delgado. This Will Decay solidifies INFERION’s rightful place as one of 2014’s purveyors of the most vile underground music available.

For fans of: ANATA, ANGELCORPSE, BEHEMOTH, BELPHEGOR, BURZUM, DARK FUNERAL, DARKTHRONE, DEATHSPELL OMEGA, DEICIDE, DISSECTION, DODHEIMSGARD, ENSLAVED, GOATWHORE, IMMORTAL, NACHTMYSTIUM, NOCTUARY, SATANIC WARMASTER, SILENCER and VITAL REMAINS.

ANNIHILATED – Extreme Death Metal Unit Featuring Members Of Abysmal Dawn And Arkaik To Release Unique Leader Debut; Lyric Video Now Playing At Revolver Magazine

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 28, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Annihilated - XIII Steps To Ruination - promo cover pic

California-based Extreme Death Metal perpetrators, ANNIHILATED – who features within its ranks, current and former members of Abysmal Dawn, Grotesque, Excretion, and Arkaik – will spread their sonic sickness across the lands this Fall with the release of debut full-length, XIII Steps To Ruination.

Set for official unleashing via brutality powerhouse, Unique Leader Records, ANNIHILATED’s XIII Steps To Ruination was produced by drummer Scott Fuller (Abysmal Dawn) and boasts eleven pounding, methodically-crafted tales of torment bedecked in hailstorm riff sequences, homicidal blasts, maniacal vocal onslaughts, and strategically composed percussive syncopation all fueled, conceptually, by political/corporate disgust and societal revulsion. As an added bonus, XIII Steps To Ruination features guest appearances by Sven De Caluwe (Aborted), Monte Pittman (Prong), Peter Truax (Vesterian, Eyes Of Fire) and Eric Stobel (Plaguereaper, P.O.R.).

Comments Fuller of ANNIHILATED’s union with Unique Leader: “We are psyched to be a part of the Unique Leader family. With such a notable roster of brutal Death Metal bands and awesome releases, we feel right at home.”

In anticipation of XIII Steps To Ruination‘s forthcoming release, today Revolver Magazine is hosting the official lyric video for the title track. Get furious, question government and witness some audio/visual carnage at THIS LOCATION.

_____________________________

XIII Steps To Ruination – Track Listing:

1. Global Enslavement
2. Eyes In The Sky
3. This Fear I Speak Of
4. XIII Steps To Ruination
5. Eradication Profits
6. Divide Distract Deceive
7. For The Ignorant
8. Wastelands
9. Creations Of Man
10. Throne Of Eternity
11. Putrifacation

_____________________________

ANNIHILATED was forged in 2008 by guitarists Eric Matranga and Robert Fimbres shortly following the demise of Los Angeles’ Excretion. Intent on composing music with a purpose, ANNIHILATED stands resolutely against society’s prevalent “sheep mentality” in favor of rational thought, questioning the motives of government and news media outlets though debilitating auditory domination.

XIII Steps To Ruination will see release via Unique Leader Records on October 28th, 2014 in North America, October 31st,2014 in Europe and November 3rd, 2014 in the UK. Preorder your copy today at THIS LOCATION.
