Skinfather - None Will Mourn - promo cover pic - 2014 - #100

As Streetcleaner Records prepares to release None Will Mourn, the debut LP from SKINFATHER, today the first single from the album has been released via Decibel Magazine.

Southern California-based death metal quintet SKINFATHER’s debut album, None Will Mourn, bears nine pulverizing hymns delivered with calculated precision and a cavernous production, taking direct inspiration from the 1990s Stockholm death metal scene and jacking it up with a bit more modern muscle. None Will Mourn was engineered by Taylor Young from Nails, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, and features the bold cover art crafted by Raul Gonzalez, and is set for digital and LP release via Todd Jones of Nails’ DIY label, Streetcleaner Records, on April 22nd.

Today, Decibel Magazine is hosting a premiere of the first single from the album to be released, with the LP’s second track, “Drown In Black,” now slaughtering at THIS LOCATION.

Preorders for the LP version of None Will Mourn, which includes a digital download, are also now live, alongside other Skinfather merch HERE.

A week following the street date of None Will Mourn, SKINFATHER will join Nails on their upcoming West Coast tour, providing support for all shows alongside Iron Lung and Bone Sickness. Additional regional tour actions, including a full East Coast attack this Fall, will be announced shortly.

RESISTANCE – Belgian Death Metallers Announce New Abum Details And UK Tour

Resistance - The Seeds Within - promo cover pic - 2014

Death Metal Chuggers RESISTANCE have announced the artwork and title of their forthcoming fifth studio album. Titled, The Seeds Within, the album will be released later this year under a label to be announced.

The band has posted a studio trailer for The Seeds Within, check it out below:

Guitarist Oli Dris commented about the album: “The CD elaborates the human race and its defects. How we desperately seek forgiveness, how coward we are towards our reality. The lyrical content is heavy and depressive. It metaphorically pictures how helpless we are facing whatever comes at us. The music is structured and shaped around this concept. Rhythm is the essence but melody plays its part bringing freshness when needed and making the listener’s journey flawless. More brutal, more aggressive and heavier than ever, Resistance matured and will crush!”

Resistance - promo band pic - 2014 - 390998

PXérus Liévin – Vocals

Olivier Dris – Rhythm guitar

Shaun Van Calster – Lead guitar

Benoit Sizaire – Bass

Jonas Sanders – Drums

Legendary French Death Metal band LOUDBLAST have posted a brand new track off their forthcoming long-player, Burial Ground.

The song, “Ascending Straight in Circles,” is now playing below:

For a little eye candy to go along with the aural pummeling, LOUDBLAST has revealed the cover art for Burial Ground. Done by Will Kuberski of Worthless Endeavors, the artist responsible for INCANTATION’s Vanquish in Vengeance, the artwork can be seen below:

Loudblast - Burial Ground - promo cover pic - 2014

A solid mix of classic and modern influences, the latest output from these death metal veterans dares transgressing their traditional thrash/death style of yore to achieve a much more malign yet as catchy sound. Burial Ground benefits from a massive production and sees the band evolving in further darker sounds while retaining the original 90s classic death metal roots.

Burial Ground is set for North American release on June 10th, via Listenable Records.

Pre-orders are available at: www.shop.listenable.net/49_loudblast.

MANTRUM – S/T EP From German Metal Warriors Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , , on March 14, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Print

MANTRUM – They’re from Germany. They’re a Metal band. They’re Metal legit. They’re unsigned. This morning, their Metal has kicked me in the face with (accepting) blunt Metal force! They’re MANTRUM. Whoa, am I psyched out that I discovered this MANTRUM band (or make that they discovered me first) on Twitter! That’s the way social media works in 2014 and cool Metal connections happen, more often than I can count, on these sites.

I’ve been listening to their (5 song) S/T EP over and over, the past hour/plus as I write this. MANTRUM plays some serious freaking Metal, my Metal brethren! Death Metal vocals, a ballistic rhythm section and still this band finds a way to add melodic fret work to compliment their speed and riffage. Do yourself a Metal favor right now and click that play button below! Stone would never steer you down the wrong Metal path! Metal be thy name!

BENEATH – Icelandic Deathsquad To Release Second Album Via Unique Leader

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , , on March 9, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Beneath - The Barren Throne - promo cover pic - 2014

In a few short weeks, Reykjavik, Iceland-based Death Metal squadron, BENEATH, will unleash the hellstorm that is their daunting sophomore full-length, The Barren Throne, once again through Unique Leader Records.

With an unrelenting fifty-three minutes of technical death metal cruelty through eleven new tracks, on The Barren ThroneBENEATH has sought to envelope melody, atmosphere and structure within its manic blastbeats and speed-picked guitars. The album evolves lyrically and conceptually around the idea of a being or entity that consumes and devours everything around it until it’s forced to consume itself. The follow-up to their Unique Leader-released 2012 debut full-length, Enslaved By Fear, the dynamic The Barren Throne is BENEATH’s first release with new vocalist, Benedikt Natanael Bjarnason, who joined the lineup in June 2013.

The album’s massive production was achieved by the Wieslawski brothers of famed Hertz Studios in Poland (Behemoth, Dead Infection, Vader, Decapitated), and the album artwork once again sanctioned to the masterful Raymond Swanland. The end result is a complex and procedural, yet dynamic album that rewards repeated listening. The Barren Throne will be released worldwide on April 29th.

_____________________________

Said guitarist Johann Ingi: “We are truly thrilled to be releasing our second full-length on Unique Leader Records. During the writing and recording of The Barren Throne, every single member of the band has surpassed themselves, taking the album to another level. The album is tighter, more focused and doesn´t give an inch when it comes to sheer brutality. We are inspired by many different genres of extreme music and on this record we sought to embrace this and transcend the need to adhere to the common boundaries of the technical death metal genre. This has resulted in what we feel is our most dynamic and relevant release yet.”

The Barren Throne - Track Listing:

1. Depleted Kingdom

2. Chalice

3. The Barren Throne

4. Putrid Seed of Affection

5. Iron Jaw

6. Sovereign Carnal Passion

7. Sky Burial

8. Veil of Mercy

9. Mass Extinction Codex

10. Storm Drainer

11. Unearthed

Beneath - The Barren Throne - promo cover pic - 2014

Formed in the winter of 2007/2008, the members of BENEATH have all been active in the Icelandic Metal scene for some years, with current and former connections to Sororicide, Changer, Atrum, Azoic and Diabolus to name a few. After making their live debut supporting The Black Dahlia Murder in January 2009 and winning the inaugural Icelandic finals for the Wacken Open Air Metal Battle they became the first Icelandic band to perform at the Wacken Open Air festival in August 2009. More festival appearances followed, amongst others Death Feast Open Air in 2010 and Neurotic Deathfest in 2011.

In February 2010, BENEATH released their debut Hollow Empty Void EP on Mordbrann Musikk which landed them a record deal with Unique Leader Records. In 2012 the band released their first full-length, Enslaved By Fear, which was mixed by Daniel Bergstrand at Dug Out studios in Uppsala, Sweden.In 2013, singer and founder Gisli Sigmundsson left the band and was replaced by Benedikt Natanael Bjarnason (Azoic).

Some Metal and Rock ‘N Roll Thoughts – Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Carnifex - Die Without Hope - promo cover pic - 2014

That CARNIFEX album cover is atop this post for a reason. I bought this new CARNIFEX CD, Die Without Hope, on Tuesday, March 4th. It’s the only CD I’ve bought in the past two weeks. Yes, this new CARNIFEX offering scorches, blazes, burns and tears apart my Metal soul, blah, blah, blah. I highly recommend it too.

____________________________

As it stands now, I do solemnly believe we live in a world that is runneth over with countless governments and Hollywood fat cats that can give two shits about the people that continue to make them filthy rich. Let the U2 bands of the world sink in the same pitiful ship of arrogant fools that bow at the altar of the billionaires club. Those bands are far too gone; they can only relate to red carpets, narcissistic thought patterns and the plastic societies that they’ve succumbed to.

With so much bullshit going on around us, all over the planet, I hereby plead for all of us Metalheads, Hell Rats, Punks, Children Of The Damned, Bottom Feeders, Classic Rockers, Underground Dwellers and Fiends to UNITE like never before!

Music is our universal language and our passion; therefore, let’s continue to get along like we have been doing and show the artificial idiots of the world how real civility is conducted! Music inspiresMusic heals. Music unites. Music is a mystical force that can never be contained. Hallelujah and ring the Metal bell for peace.

____________________________

With all of that said, I’d like to share with you all this very cool QUIET RIOT concert flyer for their June 13th, 2014 show:

Quiet Riot - St. Louis Mo - June 13 - 2014 - promo flyer

I love QUIET RIOT and appreciate this concert flyer. For those who might be offended, I make no apologies for being a red-blooded dude who digs art. Just take a long look at the endless line of violent and smutty movies coming out of Hollywood for the last several decades and this concert flyer pales (light years) in comparison. QUIET RIOT RULES.

___________________________

This USA Winter of 2014 has broken countless weather records for freezing temperatures and snow totals; with many, many death related stories due to this Winter’s wrath. To tally all these bizarre Winter records here would probably take me 24 hours of non-stop keystroking. Electric, gas and fuel bills do not lie about non-stop freezing weather. From this Winter forward, the words greenhouse affects and climate change are filthy rotten words to me… and to think I practically jumped on board that dumb-ass bus of unfounded science!

Certainly, there will forever be meteorologists, scientists and misinformed individuals that live in the mild southern regions and Tropics that cling onto the idealistic view that Mother Earth is losing her polar caps. Everyone, build a bunker! Relocate to a base on the Moon! Maybe, perhaps, they should ALL read that classic children’s book about jumping to conclusions:

Chicken Little - childrens book - promo cover pic

Or these same champions of ozone depletion can watch the animated film:

Thank you for visiting, reading or hardly reading this post. Regardless, your visit will make the site stats increase on Metal Odyssey; resulting in my (hopefully) not being fired by my boss. Metal be thy name.

Endless Chaos - large band logo - 2014 - #313

Winnipeg Death Thrash outfit, Endless Chaos, have unleashed the third and final track ‘Condemned To The Pit’ from their three song debut EP ‘Rejected Atrocity’ to complete the full FREE download for its official release today, March 4th.

“‘Condemned To The Pit’, the final track on the EP, really captures where we are going as a band.  It is a real heavy and intricate two-part banger with lyrical content about being put to death and being sent to hell.  We hope while the listener is listening he/she is overcome with an overwhelming sense to get in that pit and bring a little chaos of their own.” - Comments vocalist Jordan Dorge.

In addition to the EP being available digitally, limited edition vinyl (200 copies) will be released on Filth Regime Records at a later date in March.

The EP was inspired by one of the finest horror movies of all time, Re-Animator, and after sharing the stage with well-known bands such as Skeletonwitch3 Inches of BloodWretchedAborted and Kataklysm, the band’s direction was clear to set out to carefully craft their debut EP, ‘Rejected Atrocity’.

Florida exploratory Death Metal behemoths, ORBWEAVER, recently waged audio Armageddon upon the US with a twenty-date run of live takeovers alongside fellow Sunshine State sludge slingers, Shroud Eater.

Relays guitar demoness, Sally Gates, from the van: “The ‘Wintour’ has been excellent so far. We’ve had a great response at all the shows and some very generous hospitality. A couple of highlights from the road including stopping in New Orleans in the lead up to Mardi Gras. We had a massive sci-fi-themed parade go right past the venue. There were even Dr. Who costumes and floats! We also had an archery challenge in Pensacola, New Zealand vs Colombia vs USA. Scores are still being debated…It’s great to be on the road with our good friends Shroud Eater, and the bonus of touring in the Winter is that the van still smells fresh! Thanks to everyone who’s come out to our shows so far, and hope to see the rest of you on the road!”

ORBWEAVER is currently touring in support of their cranium-crumbling Strange Transmissions From The Neuralnomicon EP, released last Summer. Recorded at Miami’s Pinecrust Studios with Jonathan Nunez of Torche and mixed/mastered with Brian Elliot at Mana Recording Studios (Hate Eternal, Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore, Exhumed), on Strange Transmissions From The NeuralnomiconORBWEAVER travels far beyond conventional genre realms with a kaleidoscopic fusion of psychedelia, noise, and a distorted rendering of progressive death metal. Perpetually shape-shifting between these impulsive, trance-like elements, ORBWEAVER manifests interplanetary pandemonium reminiscent of a Zappa-esque brand of controlled and violently elegiac chaos.

The unsung gem continues to win the approval of adventures fans and critics alike. In a perfect 5/5 review The New Noise boasts, “ORBWEAVER have definitely blended the right mix of atmosphere with the right mix of experimental technical death metal to make a listen that is superbly solid and second to none. Whatever you want to call this stuff, I definitely hope to hear more ‘alien metal’ in the future.” Adds Metal Roos, “From the giant aliens on the EP sleeve, to the freak show, drug crazed blends of musicianship, this EP is an absolute ball-tearer…”

Sea of Tranquility, in a 4/5 rating, calls the head-scratcher of a record “big and oozing and unusual.” Quizzical listeners are encouraged to check out Palm Beach New Times’ recent interview series with Gates, guitarist/vocalist Randy Piro and bassist Jason Ledgard about their rigs, influences and obscure sonic handiwork HERE.

The band recently confirmed a string of tours which sees Diabolical campaign across Europe over the coming months in support of their latest album ‘Neogenesis.

Also confirmed are Megadeth, Down, Carcass, Amon Amarth, Saxon, Children Of Bodom, Hatebreed, Obituary, Lacuna Coil, Crowbar, Prong and many, many more.

Loudblast - promo band pic - 2014 - #2109

Legendary French Death Metal band LOUDBLAST have signed with Listenable Records for the follow-up to 2011′s Frozen Moments Between Life and Death. Due out later this year, the band’s newest album will be titled Burial Ground.

A solid mix of classic and modern influences, the latest output from these Death Metal veterans dares transgressing their traditional Thrash/Death style of yore to achieve a much more malign yet as catchy sound. Burial Ground benefits from a massive production and sees the band evolving in further darker sounds while retaining the original 90s classic Death Metal roots.

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

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

BEHEMOTH – The Satanist U.S. Chart Numbers:

OMNIVORE – Debut Album Out Now On Unspeakable Axe Records

Omnivore - promo album cover pic - 2014

Italian Death/Thrashers OMNIVORE have unleashed their self-titled debut album through Unspeakable Axe Records. This blood-soaked slab of old-school thrash aggression is now available at: www.unspeakableaxerecords.com.

A promo video for the song “I Hope The War Comes” is now playing below:

Like their name suggests, OMNIVORE are equal-opportunity devourers. Their raging full-length shows that they clearly consumed old Death/Thrash acts from Europe and the U.S. – think Massacra, Merciless, and Sadus – as well as the more-familiar Bay Area bands, represented here by the use of gang vocals, some melodic lead parts, and even a startlingly well-played acoustic passage. Of course, one of their biggest influences is revealed by the hidden bonus track at the end, a cover song that implores you to “Arise!”

Hailing from Varese and spawned in 2011 from the ashes of Nightmare Of Fallen, Omnivore is already a project on hold. The band’s lone album (so far at least) is going to burn down villages and consume the fleeing villagers.
