____________________________________

THRONE OF SACRILEGE was formed in 2012 and consists of current/former members of Ezurate, Psychomancer, Ebonmortis, Fin, Relentless, Disfigurement, Against the Plagues and Apothecarrion. Combining their talent and pedigrees, the band is: Grimnyr-Guitars/Bass; Throgrym-Vocals; DK-Percussion. Drawing from influences of past legends like Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Sodom, Destruction, Kreator, Bathory, Asphxy and Sarcofago the band hammered out several songs, but decided to only record and release three. Very chaotic and brutal, the elements of Black and Death metal are pervasive. facebook.com/throneofsacrilege

IMPURIUM is a three-piece Black Metal outfit hailing from Northwest Indiana. The band formed in 2008 by brothers Andrew and Aaron Mote. After many years of being influenced by Slayer, Death, Dark Throne, Mayhem and Immortal, the brothers joined forces and began penning material for a possible release. In the fall of 2009 drummer David Ross (Invasion, Nocturnal Torment, Afterlife, Sea of Tranquillity) joined the brothers Mote and chaos ensued. That which is recorded is a blasphemic, tortured, mid 80’s Black Metal sound captured on audio! facebook.com/pages/IMPURIUM/71173899896

VOID RITUAL “Holodomor” EP – Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in Black Metal, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on June 11, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Void Ritual - Holodomor - promo cover pic

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

Void Ritual is a one man project of Daniel Jackson (Also of Ancestral Oath), from Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The EP’s name, Holodomor refers to a man-made famine and extermination by hunger; which resulted in the deaths of millions of people from the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. This incredibly tragic chapter in history took place during 1932 and 1933.

Tridroid Records will be releasing Void Ritual’s Holodomor on cassette, this coming August. While the album has been available as a digital download for some time, Holodomor’s physical release will include the previously unreleased track Mourning the Dawn. After I’ve listened to Holodomor several times, it is very apparent that Void Ritual boasts a superb multi-instrumentalist and vocalist.

There is no denying, to my ears, that the Black Metal created by Void Ritual is a standout among underground Metal I’ve listened to thus far, this year. This 4 song EP as a whole is a fascinating listen, into just how grand Black Metal can be represented from the USA. There are blackened melodic moments to savor, with Mourning The Dawn; while the fiercely extreme side of Void Ritual’s blackened sound is served up with the opening track: Cold. The title track is nothing short of amazing and delivers on its terrifying theme, at an epic 6:23.

The totality of blackened sensations that overtook me after listening to Holodomor had me running to my front office window; peering to see if a sinkhole leading to the fiery depths of hell formed in the middle of the street. Yes, Void Ritual is that good. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Cassette pre-orders for Holodomor are expected to ship in August 2014 and can be obtained for $4 from this location:

LYSURA “II” – Midwest Black Metal Band’s EP Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in Black Metal, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on June 5, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

LYSURA - DEMO II - PROMO COVER PIC

LYSURA – Formed by ex-Acheron guitarist Max Othworth, LYSURA originally premiered in 2012 with the release of their EP Malignancy. A Black Metal band from Indianapolis, LYSURA takes no shortcuts in delivering their blackened lyrical rage and ultra-impressive song crafting with their newest EP II. The two songs on II each carry the identical running time of 8:41 and are epics to be savored.

Seasons In Exile and Tome Of Surreption both accentuate LYSURA’s conscientious approach to experimenting with time signatures and doing so very effectively; making both songs radiate on a technical and melodic level, while not vacating the Black Metal experience for one nanosecond. Guitarist Max Otworth’s vocals are convincingly demonic and true to the genre. I applaud each musician in LYSURA for their stellar musicianship; which I can listen to all day.

I can pinpoint moments of Death Metal riffage in Tome Of Surreption, along with some Iron Maiden(ish) guitar licks, however, LYSURA has entered into the Black Metal realm with outstanding originality and I wouldn’t want to see them stray from the Blackened musical path they’ve taken thus far. I absolutely cannot wait for a full-length album from LYSURA. Metal be thy name. – Stone

VALDUR To Emerge From Their Catacombs; New Material Planned For 2014 Release

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on May 22, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

valdur - band promo pic - 2014 - #44900

While their third full-length, At War With, inundated the masses in 2013, Mammoth Lake, California-based black/death trio VALDUR has remained secluded from band actions for several months, but now the cult confirms their upcoming emergence from their Sierra Nevada catacombs for a special live performance, as well as the penning of new material.

On July 9th, VALDUR will invade Sacramento to provide direct support for the only West Coast appearance of the mighty Sargeist, the bill also including Killgasm and Pale Chalice.

Collectively issues the VALDUR clan of their impending activities, “We chose to step back and remain quiet for a while by not playing live or being active as a band, besides releasing At War With at the end of last year. But we have agreed to play a special Sacramento show set up by our friend Jaime from Killgasm. The plan is to then retreat back into privacy here in our mountain town of the Eastern Sierras and continue to compose some strange music indeed….”

VALDUR Live:

7/09/2014 Starlite Lounge – Sacramento, CA w/ Sargeist, Pale Chalice, Killgasm [info]

Further information on VALDUR will be released later in 2014 upon the completion of their next recorded works. In the meantime, the first run of At War With CDs has already sold out, and the cassettes are already running low, so get em while you can via bloodymountainrecords.com.

Recorded at Earhammer Studio with Greg Wilkinson and mastered by Michael Z. (Secrets of the Moon, Ascension) at Source Studios, At War With douses its listeners with ten punishing hymns of audio abhorrence. A grotesque outpouring of war marches, harrowing riff torrents, possessed vocal tirades, fanatical blastbeats and an all-consuming atmosphere of chaos, apprehension and maniacal discontent, At War With proves VALDUR as one of America’s best kept extreme metal secrets.

Featuring past and current members of Weverin, Endless Blizzard and Plutocracy, the band was forged at the turn of the century in a small mountain town located in the pulsating heart of the Sierra Mountains where the Death Valley desert lands meet the ascending Mt. Whitney and where the unholy trio dwells without interference of fashionable scenes or rulebooks.

ASTRAL BLOOD – ALBUM ANNOUNCEMENT

Posted in Black Metal, Heavy Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on May 15, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Astral Blood - Andrew Rasmussen - 2014 - #09

Minnesota’s Astral Blood are excited to announce that they will unleash their highly anticipated self-titled debut EP with Tridroid Records. Projected to be released in the summer of 2014 “Astral Blood” will feature 3 tracks of haunting atmospheric Black Metal.

Initially formed in early 2013 by Andrew Rasmussen (Also drummer of Noble Beast), Astral Blood quickly built a buzz for themselves in the underground scene of Minneapolis. By their second show, the band found themselves as opening act for Tesseract and soon after signed with Tridroid Records.

After a couple of line up changes, Rasmussen has now solidified Astral Blood’s lineup by recruiting members of Sept of Memnon and Suffering Hour to fill out the band.

“Our minds and bodies are desperate, languishing shackled in the land of North America, but nothing will ever imprison our souls. We stare out at you from Saturn’s rings. Contained within our hearts, our hearts of winter’s chill, there rages cosmos more violent, erotic, and mysterious than the pitiful world mankind calls home.” – Andrew Rasmussen

Band members:

Andrew Rasmussen – Vocals
Joe Waller – Drums
Tommy Curry – Guitar
Alex Mahaffey – Guitar
Jason Oberuc – Live drums

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)
