Orange Goblin - Down - North America Tour - promo flyer - 2014

With ORANGE GOBLIN‘s Back From The Abyss full-length now three weeks away from release, the band has confirmed the first North American tour in support of the record. Set to begin December 1st and run through December 21st, ORANGE GOBLIN will return to the stage touring alongside Down, Bl’ast, and labelmates, King Parrot!

Vocalist Ben Ward comments, “I remember being a spotty 19-year-old rushing out to the record store to buy the first Down album NOLA the very day it came out in 1994. Now, twenty years on, I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming that ORANGE GOBLIN are heading back to North America as main support to the mighty Down. It really is fairytale stuff for us. Down are one of the bands that are the reason ORANGE GOBLIN exists. To be given this opportunity to go out to promote our brand new album, Back From The Abyss, to the Down fans is just a dream come true the rest of the band and I can’t wait to get started. The fact that we also get to see Bl’ast and King Parrot every night just makes it all so hard to believe! Hail the Leaf! Hail the RIFF! Hail DOWN!”

Recorded earlier this year, Back From The Abyss reunites ORANGE GOBLIN with producer Jamie Dodd; who served as producer on the band’s best-selling album in North America to date – 2012’s A Eulogy For The Damned. Two songs already have fans globally excited; Loudwire and Metal Hammer premiered the Motörhead-tinged “The Devil’s Whip” to overwhelming success on August 15th. Last week Noisey premiered the first video from the album for the song “Sabbath Hex.” The band is currently working on a second video for the song “Mythical Knives” which is expected to be completed by month’s end.

Colosus - Krhudd - promo portrait pic - 2014 - #33098

Known for his work as drummer of SIDIOUS, Krhudd will re-release Blestem, the debut album from one-man Black Metal project COLOSUS through Kaotoxin Records on October 7th in North America and October 27th in Europe. The album will be available as a limited edition first press (1,000 copies) DigiSleeve CD and Cassette Tape (100 copies). The album can be pre-ordered at shop.kaotoxin.com.

Perhaps best described as Dark Ambient Black Metal Soul Torture, Blestem is a crushing, desperate and intense journey into blasphemy, pain, destruction and endless agony. Though Krhudd plays a myriad of instruments and delivers loathsome vocals, the album also features special guest vocals from by Déhà (WE ALL DIE (LAUGHING, COAG) on “La Apus.” Also featuring a cover of COLDWORLD’s “Red Snow,” the album comes bundled with a free 26-track Kaotoxin Records compilation. Blestem was originally issued in 2013 as a digital-only release and is highly recommended for fans of XASTUR, LEVIATHAN, and BLUT AUS NORD.

Apostle Of Solitude - Of Woe And Wounds - promo cover pic - 2014

U.S. Doomsters APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE will release Of Woe and Wounds on November 14 in North America through Cruz Del Sur Music. Decibel Magazine is streaming album track “Luna” exclusively at this location.

With its oppressive and crunching sound, APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE’s Of Woe and Wounds will rank among the heaviest album of 2014. From the 7-minute opener “Blackest of Times” to the ending “Luna,” APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE deliver an incredible performance that gives full sense to the sometimes-abused term “DOOM”. Mastered by Tony Reed (producer of last SAINT VITUS’ album “Lillie: F-65″), this album confirms APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE as a versatile, multi-dimensional doom band that offers the most Sabbath-inspired sound around these days, blended with personal, oppressive yet dynamic atmospheres such as those found in “Push Mortal Coil” or “Whore’s Wings” (re-recorded hits from their 2012’s demo), or the long and haunting “Die Vicar Die”.

The album also features the extraordinary work of talented Artist David Csicsely known for his illustrations of Mournful Congregation, Solitude Aeternus, Wheel, Flight of Sleipnir releases.The album was recorded by Mike Bridavsky at Russian Recording LLC in Bloomington, IN and later mastered by Tony Reed  (SAINT VITUS’ “Lillie: F-65). DOOM has never been so HEAVY! The vinyl version will contain two bonus live tracks.

Of Woe and Wounds – Track Listing:

Distance and the Cold Heart

Blackest of Times

Whore’s Wings

Lamentations of a Broken Man

Die Vicar Die

Push Mortal Coil

This Mania

Siren

Luna

Costa Rican Death Metallers CORPSE GARDEN Self-Releasing New Single “Suspended Over the Abyss” On September 23

Posted in Death Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 14, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Corpse Garden - promo band pic - 2014 - #448

Costa Rican Death Metallers CORPSE GARDEN will release new single “Suspended Over the Abyss” for purchase digitally on September 23 on i-Tunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play and other digital retailers. The song is now streaming, listen below:

The single comes from upcoming sophomore full-length album Ecdysis for which the band is currently seeking a record label to release. Interested parties should get in touch with Jon@theflamingarts.eu.

The new single is representative of the band’s old school, technical Death Metal sound combined with progressive passages, killer solos and dense atmospheres.”Suspended over the Abyss” reflects the band’s new direction, due in part to lineup changes and musical growth since guitarist Esteban Sancho, bassist Carlos Venegas and vocalist Felipe Tencio joined the band. Ecdysis was crafted from December 2013 to May 2014 in Bushido Audio Productions in Costa Rica; it was recorded, produced and mixed by Juan Pablo Calvo. Album artwork was created by Alexander L. Brown of BNB Illustration and Design based on the concept provided by the band.

According to the band: “Ecdysis means the shedding or molting of an outer layer of skin particularly on snakes, it means transformation for us. We shed our skin and changed our approach to music in every aspect and this is what we wanted the album’s cover and title to reflect that. The concept is based on the steps of Solve Et Coagula, the alchemical process; making reference to Carl Jung’ studies of the collective unconscious, psychology and alchemy. This conceptual piece is crafted to capture the journey through all the stages and emotions finding the underlying patterns of order in darkness and nature of the psyche.”

Corpse Garden - Suspended Over The Abyss - single cover art promo - 2014

CORPSE GARDEN is a Death Metal act hailing from Heredia, Costa Rica. It was formed in early 2008 due to the dissolution of a gore/grind band. In 2009, they recorded a demo and in 2011 they hit the studio for the second time to record their debut album Burnt by the Light in Bushido Audio Productions with Producer Juan Pablo Calvo. The album was mastered by Jens Bogren at the Fascination Street Studios in Sweden where bands like Opeth, Katatonia, Bloodbath, Amon Amarth, recorded. Burnt by the Light was released in January 2012.

CORPSE GARDEN entered the Wacken Metal Battle Central America, competing against nearly 90 bands from all over the region. On March 31, 2012 CORPSE GARDEN became the first Costa Rican band to win this battle and to play in the official worldwide Wacken Metal Battle on August 1, 2012.

CORPSE GARDEN has shared stage with Disgorge (Mex), Morbid Angel (USA), Malevolent Creation (USA), Mnemic (Den) and Behemoth (Pol) as well as touring in Central America and Europe.

ORANGE GOBLIN – Premieres New Video Via Noisey; Back From The Abyss To Drop Next Month

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on September 14, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Orange Goblin - promo band pic - 2014 - #88640

With the release of Back From The Abyss, the forthcoming new full-length from Stoner Metal icons ORANGE GOBLIN, now less than one month away, Noisey thrusts forth opening rager, “Sabbath Hex.”

Bedecked in high-speed psychedelic visuals and an occultish-vibe, the Michael Dickinson-produced clip is currently slaying eye holes via Noisey at THIS LOCATION

And if you missed it, check out the Motörheadian dirt rock swagger of “The Devil’s Whip” still streaming at Loudwire HERE.

Recorded earlier this year in London, ORANGE GOBLIN‘s Back From The Abyss was produced by Jamie Dodd, mastered at Turan Audio and follows the band’s most successful release, 2012’s A Eulogy For The Damned, and the recent reissue of their 2007 album Healing Through Fire. Rocking hard as fans have come expect, Back From The Abyss shows not only the band’s signature blues ‘n’ doom persuasion but the high-caliber of their musicianship.

In an advance 9/10 review of the record, This Is Not A Scene crowns Back From The Abyss, “another triumph for ORANGE GOBLIN,” furthering that it maintains the band’s, “consistent level of songwriting and performance all the way through its twelve tracks that make this their most accomplished album to date. Proof that hard work does indeed pay off.”

Together since 1995, ORANGE GOBLIN has released seven full-length studio albums. A Eulogy For The Damned was the band’s first for Candlelight Records and closed a five-year recording hiatus. The album was supported with the most live dates by the band in their history; touring that saw the band on North American soil first alongside Clutch then on a full-scale headlining tour that found them on thirty-eight stages across the US and Canada. Two videos were filmed and released for the album, including “Red Tide Rising” and the special Scion A/V video for “Acid Trials.”

Back From The Abyss will be released October 7th, 2014 via Candlelight Records. Preorder your copy at THIS LOCATION.
