A Skeletal Domain marks CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s thirteenth studio album. Produced by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver) at Audio Hammer Studios, the record boasts twelve ravenous tracks of confrontational, meticulously executed, ill-omened brutality as only CANNIBAL CORPSE can deliver.

In related A Skeletal Domain news, today CANNIBAL CORPSE is pleased to unveil the official new video for third cut of depravity, “Kill Or Become.” Shot at Kelly’s Hideaway in Seffner, Florida and directed by critically lauded videographer David Brodsky of MyGoodEye (Goatwhore, Hellyeah, Whitechapel, Municipal Waste et al), the zombie-strewn, nightmarishly awesome clip fluctuates from color and black and white and offers up a delicious visual inundation of blood, guts and gastric fluids.

Critical Praise:

“‘Vector Of Cruelty’ is a masterful combination of coruscating mid-pace burl and quirky thrash, ‘The Murderer’s Pact’ pushes boundaries in the fields of lead work and atonality, while ‘Kill Or Become’ has a sizzling, infectious quality and the potential to be a set closer should they ever quit it with ‘Hammer Smashed Face.’… the point is, there’s material on lucky number thirteen that stands up to the classics.” – Decibel

“A Skeletal Domain proves why CANNIBAL CORPSE are still such an integral part of the metal world.” – Loudiwre

“…an absolute must have for any lover of anything brutal…” – Metal Injection

“…one of CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s most absorbing records in years.” – The Guardian

Kingdom of Worms, the highly anticipated new album from German Death Metal juggernaut DESERTED FEAR, will be released October 24 through FDA Rekotz. The vinyl LP version will be released on November 21.

Thuringia´s DESERTED FEAR are one of the best Death Metal bands to come out of Germany in years. The band’s 2012 debut My Empire was praised the world over and won them recognition in the European scene as a force to be reckoned with. Germany´s Rock Hard magazine referred to the album as “simply amazing.”

Kingdom of Worms was recorded in June and July 2014 at Eisensound Studio in Eisenberg (Thuringia / Germany) under the knife of guitarist Fabian Hildebrandt. Mixing and Mastering duties have been handled by the legendary Dan Swanö (Edge Of Sanity, Bloodbath, etc.), who put the finishing touches on Kingdom of Worms in his very own Unisound Studio. The dark and atmospheric artwork was once again created by Thomas “Necromaniac” Westphal and fits the music perfectly.

Aeon Guitarist Ronnie Björnström Working On Debut ABHORRENT DECIMATION Album

Abhorrent Decimation - promo band pic - 2014 - #4498

Today, London-based Death Metal newcomers Abhorrent Decimation announce they are working with Ronnie Björnström of Enhanced Audio Productions (Garageland Studios, Sweden) on the bands highly anticipated debut album.

Following the success of the band’s debut EP ‘Infected Celestial Utopia’ via Cold Birth Records, numerous shows across the UK including a tour with Hour of Penance and a crushing performance at this years Bloodstock Open Air Festival, the band are delighted to share this news.

Vocalist Ashley Scott had this to say on the appointment of Ronnie, “Ronnie is responsible for one my favourite sounding records of all time! The first time I heard Aeon ‘Aeons Black’, I knew we had to get in touch with Ronnie about the album. I would not settle for anything less. We spent a little time talking about the goal and what we wanted to achieve with this record and it was clear to me that Ronnie was able to give us exactly what we wanted. Our EP was a great start but now is the time to step everything up, material, production, direction – this album has to put our name on the map and we are positive Ronnie is the man for job.”

Ronnie shared these words on the upcoming task ahead of him, “Abhorrent Decimation is a great band. It will be a fun project to work on for sure! We have had close contact to figure what direction we should aim for… It will be a killer album when it’s done. Ashley sent me the demo’s, the material was like I expected. Aggressive, punchy and overkill! I had to take a couple of beers after listening to it due to all the brutality in the tracks!”.

Ronnie has created incredible sounding records for the likes of Aeon, Zonaria, Gnawer, Bodyfarm and Persuader to name a few.

Watch ‘A Putrid Vision’ Taken From ‘Infected Celestial Utopia’

The band has attracted the support from many of the big names in the UK press and overseas with support coming in from Metal Hammer, Terrorizer, The Guardian, Team Rock, Total Rock, MetalMouth, PlanetMosh to name a few, the album is set to be a well received Death Metal offering.

“…This band has all the brutality and technical prowess required to make music this extreme detonate with maximum impact, but what they have that many of their peers don’t is memorable songs underpinned by huge grooves and an infectious sense of momentum. New song “Echoes Of The Vortex” suggests that the Londoners’ full-length debut will be one of 2015’s must-have Death Metal records… Fucking brilliant, basically…” (Dom Lawson – Metal Hammer)

Costa Rican Death Metallers CORPSE GARDEN Self-Releasing New Single “Suspended Over the Abyss” On September 23

Posted in Death Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 14, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Corpse Garden - promo band pic - 2014 - #448

Costa Rican Death Metallers CORPSE GARDEN will release new single “Suspended Over the Abyss” for purchase digitally on September 23 on i-Tunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play and other digital retailers. The song is now streaming, listen below:

The single comes from upcoming sophomore full-length album Ecdysis for which the band is currently seeking a record label to release. Interested parties should get in touch with Jon@theflamingarts.eu.

The new single is representative of the band’s old school, technical Death Metal sound combined with progressive passages, killer solos and dense atmospheres.”Suspended over the Abyss” reflects the band’s new direction, due in part to lineup changes and musical growth since guitarist Esteban Sancho, bassist Carlos Venegas and vocalist Felipe Tencio joined the band. Ecdysis was crafted from December 2013 to May 2014 in Bushido Audio Productions in Costa Rica; it was recorded, produced and mixed by Juan Pablo Calvo. Album artwork was created by Alexander L. Brown of BNB Illustration and Design based on the concept provided by the band.

According to the band: “Ecdysis means the shedding or molting of an outer layer of skin particularly on snakes, it means transformation for us. We shed our skin and changed our approach to music in every aspect and this is what we wanted the album’s cover and title to reflect that. The concept is based on the steps of Solve Et Coagula, the alchemical process; making reference to Carl Jung’ studies of the collective unconscious, psychology and alchemy. This conceptual piece is crafted to capture the journey through all the stages and emotions finding the underlying patterns of order in darkness and nature of the psyche.”

Corpse Garden - Suspended Over The Abyss - single cover art promo - 2014

CORPSE GARDEN is a Death Metal act hailing from Heredia, Costa Rica. It was formed in early 2008 due to the dissolution of a gore/grind band. In 2009, they recorded a demo and in 2011 they hit the studio for the second time to record their debut album Burnt by the Light in Bushido Audio Productions with Producer Juan Pablo Calvo. The album was mastered by Jens Bogren at the Fascination Street Studios in Sweden where bands like Opeth, Katatonia, Bloodbath, Amon Amarth, recorded. Burnt by the Light was released in January 2012.

CORPSE GARDEN entered the Wacken Metal Battle Central America, competing against nearly 90 bands from all over the region. On March 31, 2012 CORPSE GARDEN became the first Costa Rican band to win this battle and to play in the official worldwide Wacken Metal Battle on August 1, 2012.

CORPSE GARDEN has shared stage with Disgorge (Mex), Morbid Angel (USA), Malevolent Creation (USA), Mnemic (Den) and Behemoth (Pol) as well as touring in Central America and Europe.

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

MASSACRE – Fans of this legendary Florida Death Metal band have a mega-ton to rejoice about in 2014; the return of MASSACRE was solidified by not only their return to the live stage in recent time, they’ve released a new album as well! Via Century Media RecordsBack From Beyond was released on April 1st, 2014.

As an import, I bought the limited/deluxe edition of Back From Beyond and it set me back $25.00 (U.S.). I’ll readily admit, this reformed lineup of MASSACRE crushes convincingly, just as the original From Beyond (album) lineup; going back to 1991; there’s no question in my Metal mind! With original members Terry Butler on bass and Rick ‘Rozz’ DeLillo on guitar forming the nucleus, new members Ed Webb on vocals and Mike Mazzonetto on drums solidify this historic Metal reunion.

I absolutely cannot get enough of the animated official video for the title track! Old School RULES. There’s nothing more fun than watching a bunch of flesh-eating monsters and zombies, ripping and tearing apart a music club! Metal be thy name!

Enjoy And Get Your Senses Smashed To The Back From Beyond (Official Video) Below! Whoa!

MASSACRE pays homage to iconic Death Metal pioneers, DEATH, covering both Corpsegrinder and Mutilation Death. Both of these titanic songs are heard on the limited/deluxe version of this album. This new MASSACRE album has made me very psyched; add the two DEATH cover songs and I’m overwhelmed with Metal joy!

The overall blazing sounds and riffage that guitarist Rick ‘Rozz’ DeLillo plays are simply badass! It’s all about the speed, grooves, fiery rhythm, mesmerizing drumming and guttural vocals that all come together with alarming perfection, on Back From Beyond. Yes, there is Death Metal and then there is… Death F’n Metal! That’s what you’ll get here, my fellow Death Metalaholics. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone
