Portugal’s best known Death Metal band ANNIHILATION are proud to announce that their new EP The Undivided will be released on November 4th 2014. Containing 6 tracks of absolutely punishing Death Metal, The Undivided is a stunning follow-up to the band’s debut album. A single from the EP, entitled “The Great Cycle” was released a few months ago as a digital download.

Listen to “The Great Cycle” here:

The band’s founder Fabio Da Silva released the following statement about the EP:

“We are proud to announce the release of our new EP The Undivided. Consisting of six songs, the EP is a precursor to our next full-length which will be one song connected by three parts. We have been working  on these songs for the last two years and there is a big evolution between this EP and our first album Against The Storm. The songs are more technical, dissonant and intricate than our debut album. Lyrically I spent a lot of time researching and working on the lyrics. The EP and the album focus on my vision about humanity as energy beings all connected to one source of energy. One conscious entity that connects all beings into one. An entity that has been separated from his source and originated the human species, the voyage of part of that consciousness when the human being faces death and finally connects again with the source.”

CRYPTOPSY is an Extreme Metal band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. During the past twenty years, CRYPTOPSY have wreaked havoc throughout the Metal genre by releasing six studio albums (Blasphemy Made Flesh, None So Vile, Whisper Supremacy, And Then You’ll Beg, Once Was Not and The Unspoken King), a live album (None So Live) and an EP (Ungentle Exhumation), which have confronted and invigorated the conventional approach to writing extreme music. In 2012, CRYPTOPSY returned to their roots in order to craft their newest endeavor entitled CRYPTOPSY.


Praise For CRYPTOPSY’s 2012 Self-Titled Release:

“CRYPTOPSY is not just a return to form; it’s a new entry in the pantheon of technical death metal.” – (Adam Schultz,

“Cryptopsy is, once again, amongst the leaders in the exalted and exacting Montreal and Canadian scenes, and there is nothing more vile than that.”
– (David Perri,

Critical Praise:

“Germany’s Slaughterday have the gumption (and instinct) to take T. Gabriel Fischer’s get-up-and-say-Hey! vox, back it with tested-and-true Oakland CA death/doom found in the collection of every serial killer, and inject the mishmash with a Swedish melodic sensibility cultivated from the early ’90s to present.”- Worm Gear Zine

ACRANIA – American Aftermath Drops New Mutinous Hymn From “Totalitarian Dystopia”

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on August 10, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Acrania - Totalitarian Dystopia - promo cover pic

With the release of Totalitarian Dystopia, the new full-length from London death slingers, ACRANIA, now less than two weeks away, American Aftermath is pleased to wreck your speakers with sixth track, A Gluttonous Abomination.

Recorded with Stu McKay at Studio 6 in London with mixing/mastering by Chris Foster, Totalitarian Dystopia hurls forth a thirty-six minute maelstrom of audio wreckage through ten corrosive tales dissecting chaos, corruption and the imminent collapse of mankind. The record includes guest appearances from Tom Barber of Lorna Shore, Mendel of Aborted and Jamie Hanks of I Declare War, and promises to engulf an entire new legion of modern death fanatics worldwide with its surgical execution and relentless brutality.

Boasts American Aftermath of the track, “ACRANIA‘s ‘A Gluttonous Abomination’ is a festering slab of disgusting Death Metal and this is definitely something you want to wrap your head around on such a beautiful day.”

Get irate with “A Gluttonous Abomination” at THIS LOCATION.

And if you missed it, feast your eyes an ears on the “Festering With Dishonesty” lyric video now playing at Decibel at THIS LOCATION.

Named after a rare congenital disorder that occurs in the human fetus in which the flat bones in the cranial vault are either partially or completely absent, the politically-bent ACRANIA has spread their message through several independent recordings since their 2012 inception. Their debut split with Blue Waffle and “A Trophy Of Corporate Disfigurement” single, both released in their first year as a band, followed by their The Beginning Of The End EP released last year have helped the band forge a devout fanbase of pit-seeking followers. Having already toured with various acts around Europe including Cerebral Bore and Warpath, plus with upcoming shows booked alongside Thy Art Is Murder, Blood Red Throne and many more, ACRANIA will continue to scoff their way through the scene and proliferate their message of maximized hostility through their blistering fusion of brutality, slams and blastbeats.

Totalitarian Dystopia will be released on August 19th, 2014 via Unique Leader Records. Preorder your copy at THIS LOCATION.
