The official music video for album track “For Passion Not Fashion” is now playing at this location or below:

Order The Art of Vengeance on CD w/bonus DVD at

The digital edition is available at

Fed-up with the entire trend flooding the scene, NERVOCHAOS was formed in mid-1996, with the idea of creating an aggressive and chaotic music shredding the barriers of Death Metal and Hardcore. The band gained cult status in the extreme music scene due to their hard work over the past years, offering a sonic extravaganza in their unique way. Their demo-tapes have become collector’s items in the underground, supporting their regular releases.

The band is not afraid of touring or performing live. They did many tours around Europe, South America; and shared the stage with several acts such as VENOM, POSSESSED, CANNIBAL CORPSE, KREATOR, BIOHAZARD, AGNOSTIC FRONT, CARCASS, NAPALM DEATH, DISMEMBER, D.R.I., MAYHEM, THE EXPLOITED and many more to list.

After 18 years of churning out some of the most furious and vehement metal the South American underground has experienced, NERVOCHAOS is back with The Art of Vengeance; the band’s sixth studio album.

Critical Praise:

“Old school death metal and thrash from Brazil, where you’ll still get your ass kicked sideways for being a poseur.” – Decibel

 “Brazilian Death Metal Kings”  10/10 – Metal-Temple

 “Music that will make you dive into the pit and headbang until you drop”  Two Guys Metal Review

“A bounty of varied influences that blend into their sound, moving from the thrashy bits towards some Floridian influences to some mid-tempo grooviness and even a hint of doom on occasion.” – Dead Rhetoric

Canadian Experimental Death Metal Band VHOD To Release Debut Album!

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, rock music with tags , , , , on September 17, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

VHOD - Dreamcleaver - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #33MNSSTO4E

After a few months in his home studio in Armstrong, BC, Chris Shaver has produced the debut full-length VHOD album, ‘Dreamcleaver’. Chris mans the helm alone, performing all the instruments and vocals and this album showcases snippets of unused  material spanning many years as well as brand new material. The release is a fair representation of VHOD’s Experimental Death Metal angle and will cement a milestone for Chris in his quarter-of-a-century musical journey thus far.

VHOD - Chris Shaver - promo pic - 2015 - #9936MNSSTO33

VHOD was conceived in January 2014 and is a merger of Godcursed (2004-2014), Morbid Darkness (1989-2014) and Worms Of The Birth (2011-2014), which were all active projects of sole member Chris Shaver at the time.  Early VHOD releases exhibited sporadic styles and were mostly instrumental pieces used as a basis for finding a more focussed signature sound. Said releases consist of 3 singles, ‘The Scornful Winter’, ‘One Fallen’ & ‘Cimmeria’ and an EP, ‘Dreams Of 11.14′, respectively, all released independently.

In December of 2014, work began on the ‘Tor’ Series, which consists of 4 parts: ‘Behind The Shroud Of Mist’, ‘Wrap Three Times’, ‘Portal’ and ‘The Desolates’, respectively. In these independent releases an evident foundation was made with which future VHOD recordings will branch out from. Dreamcleaver is set for release November 13th 2015 on Finnish label INVERSE RECORDS.

Lyric video “The Spectre’s Behest available in this location or below:

Track list:

  1. Still The Blood
  2. The Spectre’s Behest
  3. On The Tree Of Woe
  4. So Pass Away/Locus Mortis
  5. Dragon Sand
  6. Reap The Harvest
  7. Now Underground
  8. Flesh For Our Swords
  9. Obsequies
  10. Dreamcleaver

Line-Up: Chris Shaver (All Instruments, Vocals, Compositions)

Unspeakable Axe Records has released a two-song split CD from CIST and SOLSTICE. Check out the promo trailer at this location or below. Pre-orders are being taken here.

Relative newcomers, CIST hail from Russia, and their Death/Pestilence-influenced style of Death Metal makes a natural pairing with underground legends SOLSTICE, whose early albums are classics of Death/Thrash metal. This is just a 2-song split to serve as an appetizer for things to come from both bands, and it’s priced accordingly at a measly $5!

2 Song Track List:

1. Synthetic Life [Cist]
2. Eyes Sewn Shut [Solstice]

REX SHACHATH – Announce New Record ‘Revocation Of The Blood Elect’

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, news, rock music with tags , , , , on September 14, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Rex Shachath - promo band pic - 2015 - #03033MMMSS

Having laid low since the end of 2014, Northern Irish Death Metallers Rex Shachath have suddenly announced their return and are back for blood with a brand new record which will be out November 20th via Great Dane Records.

Entitled Revocation Of The Blood Elect, this new EP might not be what people are expecting if they’re familiar with the band’s debut offering Sepulchral Torment. Since that release, the band have had time to coalesce and where Sepulchral Torment had more of a ‘old school’ sound, Revocation Of The Blood Elect is an entirely new animal. Tackling social issues such as the state of modern society and man’s exorbitant desire for wealth at the expense of our natural world, the band have harnessed a sound more befitting to such issues on their forthcoming record.

Old school ideals kneaded with modern Death Metal notions on a much more up to date and punchier production is what we have here. Revocation Of The Blood Elect carries a sound as big, if not bigger, than its message.

Vocalist and lyricist Dave Connolly sums the record up with a quote from French philosopher Denis Diderot, “Men will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.”

Artwork (as seen above), was completed by UK artist Godmachine famed for his work with bands such as Suicide Silence, Bring Me The Horizon, Cannibal Corpse and Job For A Cowboy to name a few. The EP was recorded, mixed and mastered by Joe Thompson at Sonic Forge Studio, Cardiff, Wales.

Track Listing:
1. Atonement Through Atrocity
2. Impious Axiom
3. Revocation Of The Blood Elect
4. Within The Temple Of Disgust (Featuring Ben McCrow)
5. Colossus Rise
