4.5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metal fists - 4.5 - album reviews metal odyssey

SAHHR call Los Angeles, California home and are a Black Metal band. Their new 3 song and self-titled EP is bloodthirsty and scalding to my Metal senses! Whoa, I dig this EP and highly recommend  it to ALL Black Metal fans across planet Earth. Each time I listen to this EP, it carries me off to another imaginary and mystical Metal world; that’s what excellent Black Metal does for me. I appreciate any songs SAHHR wanted to include on this EP; still I beg SAHHR to release MORE of their Blackened rage very soon!!

It’s all here, the blistering blackened Metal, vocals from the fiery depths of the nether world and an enjoyable atmosphere of fire and brimstone. No this isn’t cliché hot air coming from me, SAHHR is a Black Metal band to keep on your Metal radar and their new EP is worthy of buying and telling all your Metal peers about. By the way, the EP cover artwork is magnificent, to my eyes. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Track List: Altar Of Maggots, Slay The Savior, Miscreant

Below, listen to, enjoy and support SAHHR:

CROM DUBH – London Epic Black Metal Sect Releases Debut Album “Heimweh” Through Ván Records

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, rock music with tags , , , on March 23, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

CROM DUBH - promo band pic - 2015 - #0324CDMO37

Germany’s Ván Records is proud to have London-based epic Black Metal sect, CROM DUBH, a part of their ever-expanding roster, as the band’s debut full-length album Heimweh is released onto the masses.

Merging melodic yet merciless black metal with folk and post-rock influences, CROM DUBH‘s debut full-length, Heimweh (meaning homesickness), continues the narrative of the band’s 2010 EP, Deifr, in which the gathering and dissolution of a great river operated as a metaphor for the rise and fall of nations and civilizations.

Heimweh follows a similar narrative, albeit with a focus on the life of the lone individual within this tumult, following a traditional cradle-to-grave progression throughout the course of the album that runs parallel to Hesiod’s five ages of man. The album handles themes of loss, ruthlessness, nostalgia, exile, and death, thinking on the journey ahead and the way home.

CROM DUBH was formed in 2003 by M. Beonetleah (Craven Idol), S. O’Fairdehaigh (Disfago), and Xavi (El Punto Devil). A rehearsal demo was recorded in 2003, and the Damnation Upon Us demo was recorded in 2004. Ro (Grave Miasma, Cruciamentum, Destroyer 666) joined to record the Fallen Sons demo in 2005. Xavi and Ro left to pursue other projects, and A. Haege joined on drums. CROM DUBH recorded and released the 2010 EP, Deifr (Ground Zero), as a three-piece, before being joined by S. Vrath (Scythian, Craven Idol) and A. Von M (Scythian). A. Von M played live with the band on several occasions before leaving the band on good terms.

Recorded by J. C. Volgard (Scythian, Craven Idol) in the Summer and Autumn of 2013, CROM DUBH‘s first full-length opus Heimweh presents forty-five minutes of majestic yet menacing northern black metal with an incredible storyline to overthrow fans of Dissection, early Summoning, Taake, Drudkh, Tsjuder, Carpathian Forest and the like.

The second movement from Heimweh, “Cutting Teeth II,” has been released via Ván Records’ SoundCloud page RIGHT HERE.

Heimweh is now available on CD and LP directly through Ván Records HERE. US order links will be available shortly.

Heimweh – Track Listing:

  1. Cutting Teeth I
  2. Cutting Teeth II
  3. The Invulnerable Tide
  4. Kings I
  5. Kings II
  6. Sedition
  7. Heimweh
  8. Fathorn
  9. Sailing To Byzantium

CROM DUBH:

S. O’Fairdehaigh – bass, vocals
A. Haege – drums
S. Vrath – guitars
M. Beonetleah – guitars, vocals

WOLVHAMMER – Confirms Headlining Dates Surrounding U.S. With 1349, Origin And Abysmal Dawn

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, rock music with tags , , , , on February 1, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

1349 - Wolvhammer - Origin - Abysmal Dawn - promo tour flyer - #2015USMO1349

Midwestern cult, WOLVHAMMER, has confirmed several headlining dates surrounding their upcoming US tour supporting 1349, Origin and Abysmal Dawn.

Following their two-pronged Desanctifying North America 2014 Tour, the first with support from Relapse artists, Mortals, and second including Southern Lord ragers, Black Cobra, headlining many of the gigs, WOLVHAMMER will spend the majority of February in the opening slot of the Chaos Raids USA 2015 tour, headlined by Norwegian black metal legion, 1349, with additional support from Kansas’ tech death metal unit, Origin, and California death outfit, Abysmal Dawn.

The recently expanded nineteen-date run will begin February 8th in Tampa, Florida, and run through the 26th in Savannah, Georgia. Yet WOLVHAMMER has also just locked up several headlining shows preceding and subsequent to the main run, February 5th, 6th and 7th, as well as the 27th and 28th.

Wolvhammer - Clawing Into Black Sun - promo cover pic - #2014WMO

WOLVHAMMER released their third full-length, Clawing Into Black Sun, in July 2014 via Profound Lore Records, with guitarist Jeff Wilson’s own Disorder Recordings handling the vinyl pressing. The record reigned in accolades from media and fans internationally, while the band took the pulverizing hymns to the road heavily the second half of the year. With nearly fifty minutes of the band’s best death rock-fueled blackened thunder yet, surging with more self-infliction, abuse, regret, and debauchery than ever, the record was recorded by Dan Jensen at Hideaway Studio in Minneapolis.

OUTRE – Stream New Song “Chant 3: The Fall” Off New Album

Posted in Black Metal, Metal, Music, music news, rock music with tags , , , , on January 20, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

OUTRE - Ghost Chants - promo album cover pic - #2015OMO

After suffering a setback with the loss of their vocalist Andrzej Nowak, Black Metal group Outre have unveiled a track from their upcoming album recorded with the participation of Stawrogin (Odraza/Massemord). A twisted and ripping track drawing as much from French bands such as Deathspell Omega as Outre’s compatriots Behemoth, it will surely draw the attention of those with a finely tuned Black Metal radar.

The band comments:
“We are now finishing the production of our debut LP “Ghost Chants”. With minor delay caused by our vocalist leaving, the vocals recording session are now heading to an end. We asked Stawrogin for help, in our opinion one of the best throats in the Polish black metal underground, and so far we are more than satisfied with the effects of his work. A promo track “Chant 3. – The fall” gives a sneak peek of what you can expect on our debut long player. We gave our best to make this record as much essential and intense as possible.”

Stream the song on Soundcloud here:

https://soundcloud.com/godzovwar/outre_chant_3_the_fall

Outre’s upcoming LP, entitled “Ghost Chants”, is set for release in early spring via Godz Ov War/Third Eye Temple/Essential Purification Records. It was recorded in No Solace and Impressive Art studios, and mixed/mastered by M. of the well-acclaimed Mgła. The track listing is as follows:

Chant 1. – Departure
Chant 2. – Shadow
Chant 3. – The Fall
Chant 4. – Lament
Chant 5. – Equilibrium
Chant 6. – Vengeance
Chant 7. – Arrival

Line-up:
Damian Igielski – Guitars
Mateusz Jamróz – Guitars
Marcin L.th Radecki – Bass
Maciej Pelczar – Drums

Stawrogin – Vocals

Discography:
2013 – Tranquility EP (self-released)
