REVOCATION “Teratogenesis” – A Scion A/V Presents EP From 2012 You MUST Know About!

Revocation - Teratogenesis - EP - cover promo!

5 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

REVOCATION – I remember posting the press release, regarding this tidy 5 song EP, Teratogenesis, from Boston’s REVOCATION. Back on September 25th, 2012, this Metal gem was released for free, via Scion A/V Presents. Scion A/V routinely offers free downloads of Metal EP’s; therefore I declare Scion A/V kicks 100% Metal ass. This great company supports Metal. ‘Nuff said about that.

Of the 5 songs on this EP, my 2 favorite songs on Teratogenesis are Maniacally Unleashed and Bound By Desire. Plus, there are a TON of Metal grooves to be heard and enjoyed from the title track. Whoa! Please note that ALL 5 songs on this EP are some of the best Metal work that REVOCATION has ever done! I’m not shitting about that. If you’re not familiar with REVOCATION, their brand of Metal is Thrash, in the Death Thrash vein and they play it extremely well; just like Arizona’s rabid Hemoptysis.

The overall Metal wall-of-sound is so damn blistering fine from this EP! This is guitar driven Death Thrash that is, for me, eye-popping! If you’re looking for Metal intensity, that’ll leave you feeling as though you’ve smoked and inhaled potent Metal bliss, then Teratogenesis from REVOCATION is it. Metal be thy name. – Stone

2014 has seen UK Death/Thrash outfit Flayed Disciple back in the studio recording a new EP and follow-up to the 2012 debut album ‘Death Hammer’. Chuck Creese, who produced the ‘Ejaculate While Killing’ EP in 2010, was back at the helm recording the new record.

Guitarist Jon Whitfield comments: “The new EP will remain untitled and released on a stunning 12″ vinyl as well as digitally. This release is to showcase the bands new sound and energy, and our new drummer Rich Lewis who joined us in 2013.”

‘Flayed Disciple’ EP will be released May 24th via Bethlam Records.

Flayed Disciple - - promo cover pic - 2014

The EP contains three new tracks; ‘Sick Abomination’, ‘The Gates Of Bedlam’ and ‘The Maniac’ and with over 20 minutes of music, Flayed Disciple are set to deliver more of the epic thrash style that they began to carve for themselves on ‘Death Hammer’. A music video for ‘The Gates of Bedlam’ will also be released coinciding with the vinyl release.

Since the release of Flayed Disciple’s 2012 debut album ‘Death Hammer’, things have moved forward greatly and at great speed. With massive acclaim from the Metal media, Flayed Disciple gained coverage in mainstream magazines such as Metal Hammer & Terrorizer. The band released two music videos, ‘The Shrine Of Dahmer’ and ‘The Westboro Massacre’; the latter, which went on to reach over 90,000 views on YouTube.

Watch ‘The Westboro Massacre’ Here:

The band have toured up and down their native UK as well as Europe and beyond with heavyweights such as Vader, Aborted, Blood Red Throne, etc. The band have played numerous festivals including the UK’s Bloodstock Festival, Hammerfest and they made an appearance at the Indian Metal Fest in Bangalore alongside Gojira.

Flayed Disciple are now seasoned live players, and have a UK tour from May 18th to 24th as main support to Earache Records’ Thrash maniacs Bonded By Blood. The band also has a 13-day European tour from October 6th to 18th in support of another Earache Records’ band Cerebral Bore.

Tankard - R.I.B. - promo cover pic - 2014

German Thrash Metal heroes TANKARD just revealed the album cover for their upcoming new album R.I.B.. The artwork was brought to life by Patrick Strogulski, who is a student of Sebastian Krüger, the former TANKARD cover artist.

Mastermind Gerre states:
“R.I.B. continues the story of Chemical Invasion. The crazy professor is back is takes revenge on mankind, because he failed in 1987! The cover is done again by Patrick Strogulski, an apprentice of Sebastian Krüger and really hits the spot! As always with Tankard, things shouldn’t be taken too seriously!”

The band also released the R.I.B. track listing:

01. War Cry
02. Fooled By Your Guts
03. R.I.B. (Rest In Beer)
04. Riders Of The Doom
05. Hope Can’t Die
06. No One Hit Wonder
07. Breakfast for Champions
08. Enemy Of Order
09. Clockwise To Deadline
10. The Party Ain’t Over ‘Til We Say So

Taking inspiration from the motto “never change a winning team”, the guys did the recording again with producer Michael Mainx (BÖHSE ONKELZ, DER W, D-A-D, DISBELIEF), who also produced the last two albums.

SEPREVATION – Announces New Album ‘Consumed’ And Reveals Details

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal, world news with tags , , , , , , , , on March 30, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Seprevation - promo band pic - 2014 - #440386

UK death thrashers Seprevation today announces the release of their debut full-length album ‘Consumed’ which is to be independently released 10th May 2014.

“Truly evil sounding death metal from Bristol, true to the 80′s and 90′s masters. For fans of Death, Possessed, Sadistic Intent etc.” – Terrorizer Magazine

That aforementioned is just one of many descriptions made of the Death/Thrash maniacs. Formed in 2011 in Bristol, England; since their inception Seprevation have been roaming throughout the UK laying siege with a battery of hate filled lyrics and a sound to kick your pearly whites to dust, Seprevation are here for a reason and one reason only… to shatter and destroy.

2012 saw the band supporting underground heavyweights Gorguts, Wormrot, Onslaught, Cannabis Corpse and many more which eventually earned the band a place at Bloodstock Festival. 2012 also marked the release of the Seprevation debut record, an EP entitled ‘Ritual Abuse’.

In 2013 the band picked up the pace signing a deal with Chaotic Tapestry Management before hitting the road with Californian Gods of gore Exhumed. That same year Seprevation jetted out to 16th Cellar Studios in Rome, Italy with acclaimed producer Stefano Morabito (Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hour Of Penance, Eyeconoclast, Acrania, Bloodshot Dawn) to lay down tracks for the debut full-length album.

Seprevation - promo live band pic - 2014 - #03901

A near year has dawned. Bigger, stronger and more devastating than ever, Seprevation are set to unleash hell armed with their brand new album ‘Consumed’.

Guitarist Joss Farrington comments on ‘Consumed’, “I think fans of ‘Ritual Abuse’ will really like it, its more of the same in many ways, plenty of shred and old school worship but it’s definitely steering in our own direction, as the writing process went on the songs became more and more diverse, songs like ‘Between Two Worlds and Dreams’ were written last and you can really hear the difference.”

“If you thought ‘Ritual Abuse’ was pretty great then buy this because it’s 100 times better, 3 words – Old School Worship.”

________________________________

Raul Gonzalez is the man behind the ‘Consumed’ artwork. “He did the ‘Ritual Abuse’ art too”, comments Joss. “I suppose if there was to be a concept or theme, it would be about death, and all the bullshit that follows with it, depression, loss, escape etc., the idea of being consumed by something you cannot control.”

Consumed – Track List:

1. Divine Devastation

2. Servants of Suffering

3. Ascension of Agony

4. Sarcophagal Chamber

5. Dreams

6. Slave To The Grave

7. In Torment They Burn

8. Sea Of Thoughts

9. Postmortem Lividity

10. Between Two Worlds

OVERKILL – COVER ARTWORK AND TRACK LISTING OF “WHITE DEVIL ARMORY” UNVEILED!

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal, world news with tags , , , , , , , , on March 30, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Overkill - White Devil Armory - promo cover pic - 2014

New Jersey Thrash Metal veterans OVERKILL will release their new album, White Devil Armory, on July 18, 2014 via Nuclear Blast. The effort was tracked at Gear Recording and will be mixed by Greg Reely, who also worked on 2012′s The Electric Age.

The track listing of  White Devil Armory will be as follows:

01. Freedom Rings
02. Where There’s Smoke…
03. Pig
04. Amorist
05. Down To The Bone
06. Bitter Pill
07. King Of The Rat Bastards
08. Another Day To Die
09. It’s All Yours
10. In The Name

________________________________

Said OVERKILL in a statement: “We are still working on the new record, but this is gonna be worth the wait, with more old-school, face-melting thrash!”

Speaking to Steppin’ Out magazine, OVERKILL vocalist Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth stated about the band’s upcoming album: “The new record has a blend of what we’ve done over the past half-decade. I’m noticing it’s a more punchy heavy metal record with more dimension than the last record had. Where is it going to end up on the food chain? I really don’t know. But my feeling is it’s an eclectic collection of moments from us. “The Electric Age” came across, to me, as kind a of two-dimensional Thrash record. This one is punchy but has a whole different bunch of ways to go and things to hear on it.”

Overkill - Group and Logo - promo pic - #1

OVERKILL released a very special limited tour edition of  “The Electric Age” in Europe on April 19, 2013 via Nuclear Blast. The limited 2CD tour edition included the regular album as well as four additional live tracks on a bonus CD, recorded at The Metro in Sidney, Australia on September 25, 2010.

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall4Half - Metal Fist - metal odyssey

UNTIMELY DEMISE are from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Thrash Metal and Death Metal collide in a fireball of gargantuan glory, on Systematic Eradication; with healthy slices of True and Speed Metal adding to the Metal delicacy! Untimely Demise is, in my Metal opinion, a Metal band that has an enormous cross-over appeal to Metal fans of widespread Metal tastes. I’m certain the majority shall agree, the cover artwork for Systematic Eradication kicks quantum ass. Ed Repka is an artistic Metal genius.

With plenty of melodic guitar solos and groove infested rhythm throughout, Systematic Eradication is a Metal release from 2013 that must be highlighted here on Metal Odyssey. This Untimely Demise album comes across with such a genuine attack of Thrash sound and energy; I cannot resist listening to Systematic Eradication, in its entirety, each time I reach for it! Vocally and musically impressive, as ALL eight songs flow seamlessly together, with each song having ample Metal uniqueness of structure and enjoyability. A fabulous Metal album! Metal be thy name. – Stone

COLDSTEEL – With five songs of blistering, American made Thrash Metal, COLDSTEEL gets ‘er done with their 2013 release: America Idle. The duo guitars of Eddie Campbell and Joe Shavel are a Thrash force, the vocals of Troy Norr is a Thrash force and the rhythm section of Doug Odell (bass) and Hal Aponte are the Thrashing icing on the Metal freaking cake.

These seasoned warriors of Thrash Metal, from New York, New York, have paid their dues and exemplify all things kick-ass about underground Thrash Metal in America. With an old school nod to the greats of the genre, COLDSTEEL have always pulled it off in a genuine, Thrashing style as an original. For me NOT to get my ass up and Thrash about, while I’m cranking up America Idle, (at home, not in the car), is a rarity. COLDSTEEL will ignite your veins, brain and nervous system to MOSH the F*CK OUT! Metal be thy name. – Stone

HATRIOT “Dawn Of The New Centurion” – Is A Dawn Of Grand Thrash Metal!

5 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

HATRIOT – Releasing on February 21st, 2014, via Massacre Records, is the sophomore album from HATRIOT: Dawn Of The New Centurion. Bay Area Thrash legend, Steve “Zetro” Souza, has once again delivered an insanely solid and eye-popping vocal performance! All fans of HATRIOT and Thrash Metal should be psyched out of their skin, once they listen to these 9 songs of true, old school Thrash Metal. Steve has to be extremely damn proud of this follow-up to their kick-ass 2013 debut album: Heroes Of Origin.

The guitar duo, (led by) Kosta V with Miguel Esparza are freaking incredible to lose your brain cells to! Whoa! Both of these axe slingers play in true Bay Area Thrash Metal style, with speed, heaviness, melodic character and plenty of furious interludes. Solid as hell is HATRIOT and they bestow the talent you’d come to expect from Thrash icons such as Anthrax, Testament, Megadeth, Death Angel and Forbidden.

There’s NO filler on this album, just plenty of Thrash greatness. The gang vocals are prevalent throughout, with a Thrash spirited rhythm section of yesteryear. Yes, Steve “Zetro” Souza has proven himself as an ultimate Thrash Metal mentor and his 2 sons in HATRIOT, Cody (bass) and Nick (drums), must surely be grateful! If I must pick my favorite song from this gem, it’s the title track. Dawn Of The New Centurion is a complete Thrash Metal package, with every song a killer! This is an electrifying Thrash Metal album; one that bridges the glory years of the 80′s to our modern-day of Thrash Metal. Hell yes and… Metal be thy name. – Stone

LOST SOCIETY – NEW ALBUM “TERROR HUNGRY” DETAILS REVEALED!

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal bands, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal, world news with tags , , , , , , on January 28, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Lost Society - Terror Hungry - promo cover pic - 2014

LOST SOCIETY, one of the most promising up-and-coming Finnish bands of our time, has released the details to their upcoming album Terror Hungry. “LOST SOCIETY is back, and we’re angrier than ever,” commented guitarist/vocalist Samy Elbanna. “The new album Terror Hungry is a full on thrash album from start to finish, with a darker and even more aggressive feel to it! It has the signature elements that make up LOST SOCIETY and we’ve put in even more groove riffage, more mind blistering guitar shredding, and some of the fastest stuff we’ve ever done on it! Look out, this one’s gonna be faster, louder and we’re more pissed off than ever!”

Terror Hungry was produced by Nino Laurenne (AMORPHIS, ENSIFERUM, LORDI) at the renowned Sonic Pump studios (FINNTROLL, SONATA ARCTICA, OMNIUM GATHERUM). The artwork was created by Jan Meininghaus (BOLT THROWER, SICK OF IT ALL, UDO). Expect to see the release of Terror Hungry in both digital and physical formats on April 1st (North America) and April 4th (Europe) via Nuclear Blast Records.

Artist Jan Meininghaus states about the album cover:

“I was asked to do LOST SOCIETY’s new album cover and first of all, I had to face the fact that I had to follow their debut album’s art that was created by the legendary Ed Repka; one of the true heroes of my own thrash metal days. So I decided to go a different way and create the band’s cover idea in a much darker and less cartoony mood than the debut. LOST SOCIETY’s musical style and their approach to metal is very 80’s bay area to me, so I thought it might be fun to paint something that might have been on one of those record covers these days. I listened to LOST SOCIETY and my old EXODUS, TESTAMENT and FORBIDDEN vinyls and it was a blast to come up with Terror Hungry artwork!”

Lost Society - promo band pic - 2014 - #44987

The track list of Terror Hungry reads as follows:

01. Spurgatory
02. Game Over
03. Attaxic
04. Lethal Pleasure
05. Terror Hungry
06. Snowroad Blowout
07. Tyrant Takeover
08. Overdosed Brain

10. F.F.E.
11. Brewtal Awakening
12. Mosh It Up
13. Wasted After Midnight

Bonus: 
14. You Can’t Stop Rock ‘N’ Roll

LOST SOCIETY’s debut Fast Loud Death displayed a true old-school Thrash vibe in 2013 and managed to amaze press and scene veterans such as KREATOR, TANKARD, DESTRUCTION or TESTAMENT alike. Just check out these video clips from that very record, to see what all the hype is about:

The bavarian Thrash Metal masterminds from RUNNING DEATH are currently putting all their love, sweat and tears into writing their upcoming debut album.

The record is to be released in late 2014 and RUNNING DEATH will for sure gain a lot of prompt attention – from more than just fans of their genre.

What we’ve seen so far makes us expect nothing less than a Thrash Metal sensation!!!

The band was founded in 2004 and has from the beginning, always been looking for quality, diversity and a completely unique style.

Exploring their own ground is what keeps these musicians and founder, guitarist and singer Simon Bihlmayer awake at night.

Running Death - promo cover - 2014 - #33310

You’re way more likely to hear stomping Heavy Metal riffs paired with unorthodox arranged razor-sharp Thrash riffs… than all the things you’ve already heard so often and really have grown weary of!

Celebrating wide diversity and integrating an extraordinarily ambitioned reinterpretation of 80s flair, the four Metal maniacs invite you to a journey through their wonderfully catchy and powerful songs.

All those factors combined create such a unique and ever exciting soundscape, that many kinds of Metal and even Rock heads will find their itch for genuinely good music scratched!

Protest The Hero - Battlecross - tour flyer - 2014 - #7780

Detroit, Michigan-based metallers BATTLECROSS will be joining Canada’s Protest The Hero as direct support on the band’s spring US tour, set to commence March 1st in Buffalo. Tickets went on sale Friday, January 24th.

Guitarist Tony Asta comments:BATTLECROSS is very excited to hit the road with Protest The Hero! They seem like a very successful, humble group of guys who don’t take things too seriously yet are serious about the business — a good role model for all modern bands and we can’t wait to get to know them on the road. Oh yeah and they’re shredders! Being direct support is a huge honor and we won’t let anyone down. This is a very unique tour package and we can’t wait to play to new crowds as well as expose some of our fans to bands they may not have seen yet. See you all in the road this spring!”

BATTLECROSS’ latest effort, War Of Will, saw the band on the road as a part of 2013′s Rockstar Mayhem Festival and debuted at #134 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, #118 on the Top Current Albums chart, #2 on the Heatseeker chart, #15 on the Current Hard Music chart, #16 on the Hard Music Overall chart, and #32 on the Independent Albums chart.

BATTLECROSS War Of Will – Critical Praise:

“Metallica-approved thrashers…catchy and direct-the secret behind BATTLECROSS songs is that they’re short and not so sweet.” - Revolver Magazine

“The overall result falls somewhere between the sheer aggression of traditional thrash and In Flames’ sense of humanity, with nods to the technical ecstasy of metal’s founding fathers along the way.” - Metal Hammer Magazine (UK)

BATTLECROSS sound like the bastard offspring of Kreator, Children Of Bodom and Dragonforce…metal fans will lap this up like a cat with a bowl of cream.” - Big Cheese Magazine (UK)

Apostasy Records welcomes new blood to the family…

Previously available in Spain only, Apostasy Records will release this masterpiece across the UK, Europe and North America. More details to come.

Praised for being their most potent album to date, Serpents Unleashed appeared on countless year-end “best-of” lists (Decibel, Metal Injection, etc.) due to its “relentlessly intense, in-your-face brutality” (Metal Assault). After touring North America extensively in the fall with The Black Dahlia Murder in addition to performing a select number of shows alongside Ghost B.C., SKELETONWITCH will continue to support the release, joining Amon Amarth and Enslaved on an U.S. run that starts this Friday in Las Vegas.
