VILE REGRESSION – Reveal New Record Details

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , on May 12, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Vile Regression - promo band pic - 2014 - #9083

Formed from the ashes of Irish Extreme Metal outfit Vistor Q; Vile Regression hit the scene in 2010 and released their debut record ‘The Pattern Evolves’ in 2011 via Casket Music.

Much to critics praise, Vile Regression went on from the release to share stages with prolific heavyweights such as Dyscarnate, Fleshgod Apocalypse and Unearth.

After building a reputation as a tight and energetic new addition to the Extreme Metal underground, 2013 saw the band head back to the studio to record a new installment… ‘Empires’.

Today the Irish Extreme Metal outfit release details for ‘Empires’ and the track listing which can be seen below.

1) Tides
2) Raze The Complexity
3) Dream Of The Red Chamber
4) Thought Replication
5) The Abstract
6) Down To A Sunless Sea
7) The Empyrean Divide

‘Empires’ will be released independently on July 21st 2014.
Comments the band: “We feel, ‘Empires’ is a very powerful word, invoking strength and confidence. The title came from the overarching theme within the lyrics, that being, positivity and empowerment in one’s life.”

“While ‘The Pattern Evolves’ dealt with very specific themes of corruption and governments, ‘Empires’ is much more positive. Lyrically the songs deal with different aspects of human emotions such as reaching your potential in life and being the master of your own empire. Songs such as ‘Raze The Complexity’ and ‘The Abstract’ are basically about being confident in yourself and purging the toxic and harmful elements around you.”

4 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall4

MORBID SLAUGHTER – Lima, Peru’s Blackened Thrash mob, Morbid Slaughter, have a new 7″ vinyl releasing on May 31st, via Boris Records. The two songs that will be your ticket to hell are: Wicca and Nightly Breath Of God. Both songs summon any or all evil vibrations from Center Earth and are guaranteed to make any true underground Metal dweller psyched-out of his or her freaking Metal mind!

With blackened vocals and furious throwback Thrash, (with a hint of punk groove), Morbid Slaughter have reminded me, once again, that Metal is still being created justly, with 100% allegiance to the dark and subterranean world of Metal. Buy this new offering from Morbid Slaughter and let their Blackened ways elate you or scare the pent-up fecal matter out of your intestines; it’s a grand Metal feeling either way. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Track Listing & Running Times:

Wicca (3:59)

Nightly Breath Of God (4:19)

Terrorizer Magazine - Norway - special issue - May 2014 - promo cover pic

As reported on the Terrorizer Facebook page:

Terrorizer’s Secret History of Norway is out now! We bring you the history of all that transpired in that famous black metal scene of the early 1990s – the music, the mayhem, the murders and the controversy. We get the oral history on what it was actually like to be a part of that scene, as told by key players like The True Mayhem‘s Necrobutcher, Darkthrone‘s Fenriz and Satyricon‘s Satyr, to name but a few.

But don’t think black metal is all that Norway has to offer, as we also explore everything from avant-garde weirdness to death metal destruction and the fury of Oslo punk, as well as bringing you our list of essential Norwegian albums.
