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 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)

Lamentations Of The Ashen Announce New Album Release Date

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on December 16, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Lamentations Of The Ashen - Libertine Cyst - promo cover pic

Libertine Cyst To Release On January 20, 2015

LAMENTATIONS OF THE ASHEN, the blackened Doom Metal project of Bon Vincent Fry, will release their long-awaited album Libertine Cyst on January 20 2015.

Consisting of four epic tracks, Libertine Cyst is the follow-up to 2011’s EKIMMV. In regards to the album, Bon has released the following statement:

“Finally, after 3 years, I am pleased to present my 3rd full-length album, ‘Libertine Cyst’ to the world. This album was the most challenging thing I’ve ever had to do musically. I was dealt an endless amount of obstacles (some self-created) which constantly resulted in delaying my progress. I feel that this record stands as a testament that the path of maximum resistance produces a more thoroughly honed work of art. I think the material contained here marks a new height in my song writing and atmosphere for this project. It’s hard to express how pleased and relieved I am to finally have this behind me and shift my gaze even further into the blackness beyond the stars. This is where it ends for me, and starts for everyone else.”

Praise for past Lamentations of the Ashen albums:

“After many repeated listens, I’m fucking way beyond just impressed! Every song on this album is a dark majestic voyage to a universe where the evil thoughts of others are murdered by our protective black dragons.”- Cvlt Nation

“Stirring the aether with bleak and depressive anthems of blackened doom, Lamentations of the Ashen achieves wonder in an audio sea of woe.”- Worm Gear zine

Wresting the Revelation of Futility from Canadian Black/Death Metallers DIRE OMEN is out now on Dark Descent Records. Order it at this location.

Stream the album in its entirety and/or purchase the digital download at:

Characterized by a progression towards the chaotic, opaque darkness that now permeates their sound, the history of the Canadian Black/Death Metallers has led to the establishment of an undeniable identity, most evident on this debut album. Utilizing abyssal, morose imagery combined with a strong sense of Thelemic ritualism, DIRE OMEN has developed a unique take on the Black/Death genre.

Posted in Black Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on November 15, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Countess - Sermons of the Infidel - promo cover pic - November 7 - 2014 - #0011

COUNTESS‘Sermons Of The Infidel’ contains a selection of 15 songs from Countess’ past. These tracks were selected by the band and all – save two live songs – were recorded again specifically for this album, throughout 2013 and 2014.

Eight of these tracks were released in 2013 as a digital-only EP. Due to popular demand, the band decided to release a physical version as well. The original eight tracks have been remixed and remastered and seven tracks have been added: five more new versions of Countess classics – including a Manilla Road cover – and two live songs, recorded at the ‘Metal Magic’ festival in Denmark this year.

Countess - live band pic - promo - 2014 - #1107

Though not an anthology in the strictest sense, this record does include many highlights from the band’s extensive discography. It is therefore a perfect record for those who aren’t familiar with Countess yet to get a first taste of the band’s unique take on metal.

‘Sermons Of The Infidel’ is released exclusively as a digipak with an 8-page booklet. The album is out now.

To get a taste of the album, listen to and watch Countess’ official video of ‘Bloed In De Sneeuw’, below. This perhaps Countess’ most well-known song as well as the first-ever Black Metal song with lyrics in Dutch. The original version was released on the band’s sophomore album twenty years ago.

‘Sermons Of The Infidel’ is out now and available from: http://countessmetal.bandcamp.comwww.heidenshart.nl and www.new-era-productions.nl

Sermons of the Infidel – Track List:

  1. Hymn To The Gods Of Yore
  2. Trumpets Of Dawn
  3. I Am The Infidel
  4. Child Of The Millennia
  5. Son Of The Dragon
  6. Sermon Of The Devil Preacher
  7. Alone Against The World
  8. Thermopylae
  9. City Of Satan
  10. Chosen By The Gods
  11. Chapel Of Doom
  12. Bloed In De Sneeuw
  13. The Veils Of Negative Existence
  14. Feuer Und Blut (live)
  15. Hell’s Rock & Roll (live)

ABOUT COUNTESS:

Countess is a Dutch band that has been unleashing metal music upon the world since 1992. Countess’ unique and harsh style of metal, characterized by an uncompromising loyalty to the old Heavy Metal and Black Metal traditions but by no means unoriginal, has certainly gone through changes over the years, but its essence has always remained the same.

The most important influences of Countess are the old Black Metal legends like Venom, Bathory and Hellhammer and traditional Heavy Metal bands like Manowar and Manilla Road.

Since 1993, Countess has released fourteen full-length albums. The most recent record, ‘Ancient Lies And Battle Cries’, was released this year.

In 2014 Countess also took to the stage again for the first time in more than sixteen years, including  succesful shows at the ‘Veneration Of The Dead’ festival in Rotterdam, ‘Under The Black Sun’ in Berlin and ‘Metal Magic’ in Denmark.

Currently, the band is rehearsing for more upcoming shows as well as working on new material. After 22 years, Countess is still going strong.
