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.

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

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 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

CANNIBAL CORPSE – Legendary Death Metal Unit Unleashes “The Murderer’s Pact” Via Loudwire

Cannibal Corpse - The Murderer's Pact - Loudwire - promo band flyer

Band Prepares To Drop Thirteenth Full-Length

_________________________________

Following its premiere this past weekend on Full Metal Jackie’s syndicated radio show, today long-running death metal behemoths, CANNIBAL CORPSE, deliver “The Murderer’s Pact” via empire sound portal, Loudwire.

“The Murderer’s Pact” serves as the sixth cut of sonic punishment from CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s forthcoming A Skeletal Domain full-length, set for official detonation via Metal Blade Records on September 16th, 2014.

Comments Loudwire: “The band has been spewing out death metal for over twenty-five years, and A Skeletal Domain, much like CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s first twelve albums, takes no prisoners. Clocking in at over five minutes, ‘The Murderer’s Pact’ showcases some awesome musicianship from the band’s instrumental sections along with an interesting song structure. For fans of George ‘Corpsegrinder’ Fisher, you’re in for a treat, as well. The vocalist also delivers with his trademark grunt, showing no signs of vocal rust whatsoever.”

Get brutal with “The Murderer’s Pact,” now playing at THIS LOCATION.

A Skeletal Domain marks CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s astounding thirteenth full-length. Produced by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver) at Audio Hammer Studios, the record heaves forth twelve ill-omened tracks in forty-four skin-searing minutes, the result of which is a colossal, confrontational, and meticulously executed aural attack that finds the band at the peak of their notoriously hyper-kinetic viciousness. In an 8/10 rating of A Skeletal Domain, Decibel elaborates, “‘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.”

Cannibal Corpse - A Skeletal Domain - promo cover pic

Adds Sputnik Music in a near perfect 4/5 score, “CANNIBAL CORPSE have pushed the technicality of their songs without forgetting the brutality or speed that fans have come to expect. They have also added a thrash element that periodically rears its head before being murdered by another blast beat and atonal guitar solo. Together all of these elements have created a CANNIBAL CORPSE album that is darker and more chaotic than normal, but that is somehow probably their most accessible. …with A Skeletal Domain there is even more of a reason for people to give CANNIBAL CORPSE a listen.”

In related CANNIBAL CORPSE happenings, the band will unleash their first-ever official authorized biography. Written by Joel McIver, author of Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica and biographies on Black Sabbath, Slayer, Slipknot, and Queens Of The Stone Age,Bible Of Butchery – Cannibal Corpse: The Official Biography will contain over 150 pages loaded with photos from the band’s collection, available everywhere later this month.

A Skeletal Domain will be released in North America on September 16th, 2014 via Metal Blade Records. Point your browser to metalblade.com/cannibalcorpse where you’ll witness the audio menace of second track, “Sadistic Embodiment” as well as a host of preorder bundles.

HIDEOUS DIVINITY – Italian Death Legion Gets “Sinister And Demented” At Decibel Magazine; “Cobra Verde” Preorders Available

Posted in Death Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on September 5, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Hideous Divinity - Cobra Verde - promo cover pic

Italian Death Metal horde, HIDEOUS DIVINITY, who feature within their ranks former members of Hour Of Penance and Ghouls, is preparing to unleash Cobra Verde, their second full-length via Unique Leader next month.

Featuring nine hymns of hate and contempt, Cobra Verde was recorded at 16th Cellar Studios (House Of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Trifixion, Vomit The Soul et al), boasts a guest vocal appearances by Nile’s Dallas Toler-Wade, a crushing cover of Ripping Corpse’s “The Last And Only Son” and is a true must-have for devout followers of obscure and intense death metal a la Nile, Immolation with the lysergic influences of Ulcerate.

In celebration of its imminent rule, Decibel Magazine, who applauds HIDEOUS DIVINITY’s “uber-brutal, churning platter of tech-y death metal,” offers up the fittingly titled fifth cut “Sinister And Demented,” for your weekend listening pleasures at THIS LOCATION.

Cobra Verde – Track Listing:

1. In My Land I Was A Snake
2. The Somber Empire
3. Cobra Verde
4. Salt In The Martyr’s Tear
5. Sinister And Demented
6. Desolation Within
7. The Alonest Of The Alone (featuring Nile’s Dallas Toler-Wade)
8. Adijnakou
9. The Last And Only Son (Ripping Corpse cover)

Hideous Divinity - Cobra Verde - promo album banner - 2014 - #9192

Born between Italy and Norway in late 2006 as a side project of Hour Of Penance founder Enrico Schettino, HIDEOUS DIVINITY immediately earned underground accolades thanks to their Sinful Star Necrolatry two-track demo, an intriguing mesh of European and American extremities released at the end of 2007. It wasn’t until 2010 that the band, with their first stable lineup, would perform live with longstanding comrades, Insision. In the interim, new songs were composed with their European Death/Black influences giving way to a more mindful, complex yet straight-in-your-face Death Metal assault in the vein of Nile, Immolation and Hate: the embryo of their first full-length release.

Following another successful appearance in Scandinavia at the end of April 2012, this time for the prestigious Inferno Festival in Oslo, Norway, a three-album deal with Unique Leader Records was forged. In late July 2011 the band entered 16th Cellar to record their Obeisance Rising debut. The lyrical concept is based on John Carpenter’s immortal masterstroke They Live, a dramatically relevant testimony of a dark era that never ended.

“In this place, the dead are more alive than the living.”
A new era has come for HIDEOUS DIVINITY. Join the slavery.

Cobra Verde will be released in the US on October 28th, 2014, the UK on October 27th and the rest of Europe on October 31st. Preorder your copy at THIS LOCATION.
