Countess - Ancient Lies And Battle Cries - promo cover pic - 2014

On April 9th, Dutch Black Metal legends COUNTESS will release their long-awaited new full-length album, entitled ‘Ancient Lies And Battle Cries’ through the band’s long-time label Barbarian Wrath.

‘Ancient Lies And Battle Cries’, the band’s fourteenth full-length, features ten tracks of uncompromising METAL, blending first wave Black Metal and traditional Heavy Metal in a way only COUNTESS can. The result of almost three years of writing and recording, ‘Ancient Lies’ will surely satisfy all those who long for the days when Black Metal was still METAL.

Fans can get a first taste of the new record as of today. A video has been released for the song ‘Call Of The Ancient Pantheon’ through the band’s official YT channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/countessmetal?feature=watch

COUNTESS – Call Of The Ancient Pantheon:

The album’s full track list:

1. Battle Sky

2. Call Of The Ancient Pantheon

3. By Hammer And Blood

4. Vengeance Of The Slain

5. Beneath The Eye Of Wisdom

6. Confessions Of A Polytheist

7. Pray For The Cult

8. Cursed Seed Of Aten

9. Burn The Throne

10. The Last Temple

BEHEMOTH “The Satanist” – A Remarkable Album And Fan Loyalty = Album Chart Success

Posted in Black Metal, Death Metal, Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , , on February 20, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Behemoth - The Satanist - CD:DVD - promo pic - #2 - 2014 - 44

BEHEMOTH – There’s no question that the tenth studio album, The Satanist, from Poland’s BEHEMOTH has made a lasting Metal impact upon the Metal masses. I see this current album/digital chart success as a telling reminder to the status-quo mainstream: that quality Metal exists and will never say die! Both the commendable Metal and artwork of The Satanist, coupled with BEHEMOTH’s (ever-growing) loyal fan base have made a profound Metal statement during this month of February.

Album chart success for an Extreme Metal band is not an example of selling-out; instead it’s an example of the Metal cream rising to the top. Hard work and dedication to one’s craft shall pay dividends; in the case of BEHEMOTH, the Metal dividends are (in my opinion) well-earned. This recent chart success for BEHEMOTH also means that their fans have spoken and spent their hard-earned money on The Satanist, while any illegal downloaders can march straight into the douche-bag posers lounge and drink stale prune juice.

The Satanist was released in North America, via Metal Blade Records on February 4th. Below you will see the chart numbers for both the U.S. and Canada. This information was posted on the BEHEMOTH! Facebook page, on February 12th. – Stone

DEAD IN THE MANGER – 20 Buck Spin Confirms Numerous Releases By Insidious Blackened Grind Entity

Posted in Black Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , , on February 6, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Dead In The Manger - promo band pic - #33051 - 2014

Olympia, Washington-based 20 Buck Spin continuously defies all extreme music genre boundaries, the label’s vast juggernaut of a roster containing top-tier acts from all realms and scenes of the underground, and now continues this tradition with the new induction of mysterious entity, DEAD IN THE MANGER.

Very little information was provided to 20 Buck Spin regarding DEAD IN THE MANGER when the label was initially contacted about a release, only that the band delivers a mix of depressive black metal and grind (which seemed on paper an impossible combination) and that the intention is to leave a feeling of unease and despondency in the listener. Nonetheless, a cursory listen to the outfit’s debut MLP, Transience, leaves no doubt that DEAD IN THE MANGER succeeds handily in creating music both brutally violent and coldly agonizing.

___________________________

Transience begins with an atmospheric repetitive motive conjuring a bleak sadness that sets the stage for an urgent right turn to scalpel-sharp, maximum BPM aggression and multiple stab wounds of hate-driven malcontent. Filled with ill will and revulsion, DEAD IN THE MANGER walks a fine line between all out sensory violence and post trauma exhaustion.

With just six songs in less than twenty minutes — succinctly named Parts I-VI – Transience destroys the listener with a calculated premeditation in a short time, and is intended as a first glimpse at what DEAD IN THE MANGER is preparing for, as a debut full-length album is currently in the works.

Transience will be unleashed on MLP and digital formats in North America on April 29th and in Europe on May 2nd. DEAD IN THE MANGER’s LP debut will follow later in 2014, also on 20 Buck Spin.

Transience - Track Listing:

1. Part I

2. Part II

3. Part III

4. Part IV

5. Part V

6. Part VI

VALDUR – Long-Running Alpine Black/Death Conjurors Confirm Details Of Imminent New Full-Length

Posted in Black Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on November 16, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Valdur - At War With - promo cover pic - 2013

Alpine Black/Death conjurors, VALDUR, have confirmed preliminary details of their impending new full-length. Dubbed At War With, the follow-up to the band’s 2010-released Raven Gods Among Us, was recorded at Earhammer Studio with Greg Wilkinson at the helm and is currently being mastered by Michael Z. (Secrets of the Moon, Ascension) at Source Studios and boasts ten psalms of sonic repugnance.

States drummer Matthew bluntly, “I’m not very comfortable trying to put VALDUR’s music into words, but I think that what is important is that we have the luxury of doing what we want, when we want… and in the end, it will be our music and artwork that will do all the talking.”

Feel the infernal enormity of a rough version of the title track at THIS LOCATION.

Crowned “the best black metal band in the United States that you’ve probably never heard of,” by About.com and featuring past and current members of Weverin, Endless Blizzard and Plutocracy, VALDUR was forged at the turn of the century in a small mountain town located in the pulsating heart of the Sierra Mountain Range near the Nevada border. It is where desert (Death Valley) meets mountain (Mt. Whitney) and where the unholy trio celebrate the freedom and space to dwell without interference of fashionable “scenes” or “rulebooks.”

At War With will rise on December 17, 2013 via BloodyMountain Records. Additional details to be unveiled in due time.

VALDUR Personnel:

Matthew – Drums

William – Bass

Samuel – Guitar/Vocals

LASTER – Dutch Black Metal Entity LASTER Announces First Live Performance

Posted in Black Metal, black metal bands, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 13, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Laster - Live Performances - promo flyer - 2013 - #1

Emerging from their self-imposed solitude, atmospheric Black Metal entity LASTER will travel from their Dutch homeland to Germany later this year for their first ever live performance.

Scheduled for Saturday, December 21st, LASTER’s live debut will take place at Musikbunker Aachen in Aachen, Germany. Support will come from NORTHWARD, GOATBLOOD and MORAST. For more info and updates, visit the Concert Event Page.

In 2012, LASTER released the three-track EP, Wijsgeer & Narreman on Dunkelheit Produktionen. Praised for its bleak, yet hypnotic and poetic delivery, the EP is currently available on CD, cassette and digital formats. Looping lamentation and genuine gloom brought to life by songs which leave the standard of DSBM far behind. Floating riffs, melancholic and full of grace, rolling drums and pressing lyrics tell stories about pain that was lived through and artistic musicianship. This music’s pathos aspirated by an energy standing up again and again to fade within monotonous doubt and to indulge in blind despair.

laster - promo band pic - #1 - 2013

LASTER (meaning libel) was founded and located in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The band consists of N. (NORTHWARD) and W. Damiaen (OMNINIHILIST, SEA OF TREES, WILLOOS, WHITE OAK). Wijsgeer & Narreman is recommended for fans of URFAUST and AUSTERE!

Wijsgeer & Narreman is available at: www.dunkelheit.cc.

Venom are currently in the studio adding the final touches to their new album. The album is being scheduled for release through UMG [Spinefarm Records] in early 2014. [ we will bring more information and album / song titles soon ]

Dante commented: “The new songs are sounding amazing, the whole album has a great feel. I’d say the strength of this band comes from our determination to create great music, and that comes from forward thinking, new ideas and fresh challenges”.

Cronos continued: “I believe this is Venom at it’s best, the song writing keeps getting better, and the live shows are tighter and heavier than ever. It’s clear to me now that all of the line up changes this band has been through over the years, has been an inspiring journey to find the right band of warriors. Venom continue to keep growing stronger, and unstoppable”.

The eighth studio album by Norwegian Black Metal band SATYRICON will be released in North America on September 17th via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

SATYRICON:

“We are back. Sorry it took so long, but we needed the time to be able to pull off a record like this,” states band frontman Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven. “Comparing this one to previous records is time wasted, it is SATYRICON; constantly on the move. Naming this record Satyricon was the most obvious thing in the world. We have never done a record which captures the spirit of this band in such a way. Ever. It will demand a lot from you as a listener, but I know you will love it. It will grow on you and that is why it will stay with you forever. We won’t tour as much in the future as we used to, and that will just make every tour more special. This album is for you and ourselves. It is our moment!”

DHG / Dødheimsgard – Norway’s Black Metal Legends Sign To Peaceville Records

Posted in Black Metal, black metal bands, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on July 3, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

DHG - Peaceville Records Signing - promo banner - 2013

Peaceville Records are proud to announce the signing of Norway’s finest bunch of demonic delinquents, Dødheimsgard (DHG). One of the truly great boundary-pushers & visionaries of the mid-90’s Norwegian Black Metal evolution, & having released 4 full-length albums to date since their inception, DHG are widely hailed as masters of dark & psychotic psychedelia-tinged extremity.

“Now, here we are, a new band with brand new songs, letting something unconscious and dormant become the conscious and the awake.

In addition, we will also finish the re-reissuing of our past titles on Peaceville Records, since they’ve done such a good job taking care of the other material. This means that “Satanic Art”, “Monumental Possession” and “Kronet til Konge” will again be available to the masses at some point in the near future. I also plan to release a lot of additional psychopharma in relation to the next couple of releases, as treatment for the over-average crazy patient at the worldwide DHG asylum. Stay tuned for more news from the devil’s favourite band”.

Recent Indie Recordings signees, NIDINGR, will unleash their new full-length, Greatest Of Deceivers, in North America on November 20th. Starring present and past members of bands such as Mayhem, Gorgoroth, DHG (Dødheimsgard), 1349 and God Seed, among others, the Norwegian Black Metal magicians are known for their efficiently complex songwriting, ravagingly dissonant, yet infinitely catchy riffs and breakneck tempos. Their two previous offerings — 2005’s Sorrow Infinite And Darkness and 2010’sWolf Father — prove what this maniacal assault is capable of. 

NIDINGR recorded G.O.D. in Crystal Canyon Studios in Oslo, home to a host of prominent Norwegian acts including cult experimentalists Ulver, to accomplish a unique ‘70s, vintage style production. The sound they’ve created is a wholly organic, warm, unedited and un-triggered production that further emphasizes the great musicianship caught on tape. Greatest Of Deceivers was produced by guitarist Teloch, mixed by Anders Møller (Kitchie Kitchie Ki Me O, Euroboys, 120 Days, Turbonegro, etc.) and  mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano at Orgone Studios. The cover was crafted by the renowned Metastazis (Morbid Angel, Nachtmystium, Paradise Lost, Watain, Blut Aus Nord, etc.).

Greatest Of Deceivers continues the theme from Sorrow Infinite And Darkness, based on Enochian texts. As on the previous album, ten Enochian Æthyrs are evoked through the course of the album.

Greatest Of Deceivers Track Listing:

01. Greatest Of Deceivers
02. All Crowns Fall
03. O Thou Empty God
04. The Balances
05. Vim Patior
06. Rags Upon A Beggar
07. The Worm Is Crowned
08. Pure Pale Gold
09. Mother Of Abominations
10. Dweller In The Abyss

VALDUR – Alpine Black/Death Occultists Issue Recording Update; New Song Posted

Posted in Black Metal, black metal albums, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 13, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Alpine Black/Death occultists VALDUR recently completed composing their upcoming, as-yet, untitled new full-length. Official recording sessions will commence on November 12th at Earhammer Studios. Additionally, VALDUR recently unleashed an ultra limited two-song EP entitled The Hammer Pit containing a rough version of two new songs. Taste the blood of track one, “Conjuring The Fire Plagues,” at the band’s Official BandCamp Page. When asked to talk about the upcoming new material, the band said in a collective statement: “We wish not to elaborate too much and allow the music that we will be putting out in the near future to do the talking.”

In the meantime, check out VALDUR live in the studio at KDVS at THIS LOCATION.

Hailing from Mammoth Lakes, California, VALDUR released Raven God Amongst Us in 2010 via Blood Mountain Records. The record proved to be an infernal masterpiece among the underground masses. Noted The Metal Crypt in a review of the record: “USBM is so often by the numbers that I am wary of it right out of the gate, but this is a band that remembers what is good about black metal, and does it very well indeed. Not an album to overlook,”About.com called the band, “the best black metal band in the United States that you’ve probably never heard of,” while Thrash Pit opined, “…a shimmering brand of black metal which pierces hearts rather than suffocates lungs.”

VALDUR:

Samuel: Guitars/Vocals

William: Bass

Sxuperion: Drums

NIDINGR – Unite With Indie Recordings

Posted in Black Metal, Heavy Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on August 29, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Indie Recordings are pleased to announce the signing of Norwegian Black Metal deviants NIDINGR! Starring present and past members of bands such as Mayhem, Gorgoroth, DHG (Dødheimsgard), 1349 and God Seed, among others, NIDINGR are known for their efficiently complex songwriting, ravagingly dissonant, yet infinitely catchy riffs and breakneck tempos.

Their two previous offerings — 2005’s Sorrow Infinite and Darkness, which the Metal Crypt crowned “one of the most interesting albums that has crawled out of the blackened depths of Norway in many a years” and 2010’s Wolf Father, featuring Mayhem’s Hellhammer on drums — proves what this maniacal assault is capable of.

Said the band in a collective statement: “NIDINGR is looking forward to working with a great label on Norwegian soil. We are sure Indie Recordings is the label we need to get us out to the masses and up to the next level.”

Further info to be released this Fall.

“NIDINGR has created an extremely dense and concentrated lesson in black metal’s most interesting elements…” – Lords Of Metal

“Wolf Father is a lean, mean disc that hits with the quickness of a raiding party and the heft of broadswords. Its six songs always go for the jugular, leaving a solid clubbing any time they fall short. It’s a beast worth hunting down as Wolf Father has potential as the head of the blackened death metal pack.” – Washington Times
