Posted in Death Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on July 2, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Deserted Fear - promo pic - #336609 - 2014

German Death maniacs DESERTED FEAR have entered Thuringian Eisensound Studio in Eisenberg, Germany to begin work on their new, as-of-yet untitled album.

The band comments: “It´s getting loud again in Eisensound studio! After over two years of abstinence from the studio, that we spent with playing a lot of great live shows, we are now returning to record a new record. The new album will once again contain nine neck-breaking death metal songs as well as a cool guest feature, which we will announce later. The drums are nailed down already and now we will do the guitars. Stay tuned people, we are really looking forward to present this to you!”

DESERTED FEAR are considered one of Germany´s premier young Death Metal bands. The band’s 2012 debut, My Empire, earned acclaim from both fans and critics worldwide.

DESERTED FEAR:

Manuel Glatter – Vocals, Guitar

Fabian Hildebrandt – Guitar, Bass

Simon Mengs – Drums

Albrecht “Albi” Probst – Live Bass

Praise For My Empire:

“Simply amazing how much hit-potential you can find on this album, from the first song to the last. If one can even speak about this in terms of death metal. Great start!”

- RockHard

“Clearly one of the Death Metal highlights in 2012, maybe even THE Death Metal highlight!” - Metal.de

“There’s also a great technical potential coming up with this young band, that created more than a decent result with ‘My Empire.’ You need to keep an eye on those guys. Huge respect!” - Legacy.de

DESERTED FEAR – Live:

July 10 – 12 @ Torgau – In Flammen Open Air

July 25 – 27 @ Rohr bei Meiningen – Riedfest

CANNIBAL CORPSE – American Death Metal Icons To Release “A Skeletal Domain” – New Track Posted + Preorder Packages Now Available

Cannibal Corpse - A Skeletal Domain - promo cover pic

Band To Kick Off Summer Tour As Part Of The Rockstar
Energy Drink Mayhem Festival

____________________________

American Death Metal icons, CANNIBAL CORPSE, are pleased to announce the release of their thirteenth full-length entitled A Skeletal Domain.

Lucky number thirteen? Lucky or not, it’s a quantity of releases (not even counting VHS/DVD releases and EPs) and a wealth of material beyond which most bands could even fathom. The CANNIBAL CORPSE collective – vocalist George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher, bassist Alex Webster, guitarists Pat O’Brien and Rob Barrett and drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz – approaches each recording session with a honed and precise vision of a band in their third decade of existence.

With this new entry to their extensive catalog, they’ve switched gears, opting to work with producer Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver) at Audio Hammer Studios, after having tracked their previous three outings (Kill, Evisceration Plague, Torture) with Erik Rutan. Boasting twelve-ominous tracks in forty-four spine-fraying minutes, the result is a massive, belligerent, and deliberate aural attack that finds the band at their peak of their notoriously hyper-kinetic, meticulously executed brutality.

Preparation for A Skeletal Domain did not vary significantly from previous efforts. “At the end of the day, we’re still making a death metal record, no matter where it’s being recorded,” relays Webster. Mark Lewis offered a slightly different, modern recording approach, but the band stressed that they could not be more pleased with their previous albums with Rutan, and the door is most definitely open to work with him again in the future. Changing producers is something the band has historically done after every few albums, if only to not get too comfortable. CANNIBAL CORPSE also tried to step outside of their comfort zone when it came to songwriting and their musical performances. “Consistency is often confused with repetition. We are established with what we do as a band, and we could relax and not push ourselves, but we try to push the envelope. That’s what makes this exciting,” Webster adds. “Anyone who really listens to this album with an open mind will hear that it’s not same-old same-old.” Mark Lewis would concur with Webster’s analysis and even goes a step further by claiming that “there are moments on this record that have never happened in musical history.”

Cannibal Corpse - A Skeletal Domain - promo cover pic

CANNIBAL CORPSE have proven time and again that they have more fuel in their tank, more riffs in their minds, and more ways to describe gore than any single group of human beings could ever have hoped. The thirteenth album will prove to be as important a landmark in their career as just about any other. CANNIBAL CORPSE are consistency defined.

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

A Skeletal Domain Track Listing:

01. High Velocity Impact Spatter
02. Sadistic Embodiment
03. Kill Or Become
04. A Skeletal Domain
05. Headlong Into Carnage
06. The Murderer’s Pact
07. Funeral Cremation
08. Icepick Lobotomy
09. Vector Of Cruelty
10. Bloodstained Cement
11. Asphyxiate To Resuscitate
12. Hollowed Bodies

As a precursor to the official unveiling of A Skeletal Domain, CANNIBAL CORPSE will kick off the Summer as Coldcock Herbal Whiskey Stage headliners on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival featuring Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Trivium and many more. Set to commence on July 5th in San Bernardino, California, the annual mega tour will stampede its way across North America throughout July and much of August, coming to a close on August 10th in Woodland, Texas.

As an added bonus, CANNIBAL CORPSE will be doing daily signings at 3:00pm at their merch booth for the duration of the fest where Mayhem attendees can preorder A Skeletal Domain. Fans buy a limited edition laminate with a unique redemption code, redeemable online at metalblade.com and the record will ship to their door!

SYLVATICA – Band Biography:

SYLVATICA started as a folkish Black Metal project in the year 2009 by friends Pelle Buch and Rasmus Kaibe, who, while listening to Svartsot, in a drunken haze decided that they wanted to start a Folk Metal band. Realizing that none of them could play flute and they needed a guitarist, they called Jardén Schlesinger the same night and he was added to the “line-up”… after that the flute was scrapped.

The first SYLVATICA release was the song Mjölner og Mjöd, which quickly became a local hit in their hometown Nyborg, even though it was very poorly recorded and mixed, by Kaibes bigger brother, they started getting a name for themselves, and after a couple of line-up changes, SYLVATICA recorded their first EP / demo Sagn og Sagaer in late 2010 with the new line-up, consisting of Jardén Schlesinger and Jannik Ravn on guitars, Thomas Haxen, replacing Kaibe, on bass and Pelle Buch on drums. This release earned the band live jobs with Vanir and Svartsot.

Sylvatica - band logo - B&W - 2014 - #100

After a couple of months, the band decided in the summer of 2011 to record a new EP / demo called Mosemanden, but this time without Jannik, who decided to leave the band. For the promotional live shows after the recording, the band took in guitarist Thor Stokholm, who filled in for Jannik for a few shows untill they found a permanent replacement in Martin Hamann, who joined the band just before the Mjød og Mædl tour in 2011. After 2012 Martin Hamann was no longer a part of SYLVATICA.

Having toured all of Denmark in 2011 and 2012, the band has now gradually upgraded itself from a spare-time hobby to a fully fledged band, looked for a label to support its debut album, which ended in a self-financed release situation.

The band has, however, not stepped back in regards to live performances, still actively playing concerts whenever possible, the band is both playing nationally and abroad, if possible. So keep your eyes open, SYLVATICA might just one day bring the swamps to your doorstep, and deliver a show you won’t soon forget.

ENTRAILS – Swedish Death Metallers To Release “Resurrected From The Grave – Demo Collection” On July 22nd In North America; New Single Posted

Entrails - Resurrected From The Grave - promo cover pic - 2014

Swedish Death Metal collective, ENTRAILS, is pleased to unveil Resurrected From The Grave – Demo Collection, an eighteen-track compilation featuring the band’s Reborn and Human Decay demos.

The demo material is based on ideas ENTRAILS first developed back in the ’90s. For various reasons, they were never released and some years later the band fell apart completely. Guitarist Jimmy Lundqvist continued to write however and saved everything to tape. Fifteen years passed before Lundqvist decided to record these ancient relics with modern tools, computers and some help from his partner in crime, vocalist Jocke Svensson.

The first demo, Reborn, was tracked in early 2009 and the follow-up, Human Decay, shortly after in the Summer of that same year. The demos were initially self-released on homemade CD-Rs and limited to just fifty copies each. Back then, it had already been decided that they would need to be repressed at some point in the future. That time is now.

Lundqvist comments: “It feels great to finally do something serious with the two demos from 2009. After multiple requests from fans asking about the demos, I had to release the brakes on this, now or never. While we are working on the upcoming new ENTRAILS full-length, we feel better to do this release now which gives a bit more time for upcoming shows and the new album!”

Resurrected From The Grave – Demo Collection Track Listing:

1. Reborn (Intro)
2. Evil Obsession
3. The Morgue
4. Your Dead Dog Smile
5. Voices
6. Triumph Of The Sinners
7. Stormy Death
8. Midnight Death
9. Breath Of Blood
10. Entrails
11. Depression
12. Dust To Dust (Intro)
13. Blood Red
14. Euthanasia
15. Evil Terror
16. Total Death
17. Human Decay
18. Casket Garden (Dismember Cover)

Entrails - Resurrected From The Grave - promo cover pic - 2014

Resurrected From The Grave – Demo Collection will be available on CD and digitally in North America on July 22nd, 2014. Head to THIS LOCATION to stream the first single “Blood Red” and preorder your copy today!

ENTRAILS’ most recent full-length, Raging Death, was released via Metal Blade in May of 2013 and reaped critical hails both stateside and abroad. Metal Hammer noted that Raging Death “should satisfy those who are hungry for something oldschool,” New Noise Magazine dubbed it, “an absolutely perfect slab of catchy, violent Swedish death metal,” while Stereogum opined, “Now on their third album, ENTRAILS are still putting young knockoff artists to shame. Perfect for blasting, banging, and bashing.”

VALDUR To Emerge From Their Catacombs; New Material Planned For 2014 Release

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on May 22, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

valdur - band promo pic - 2014 - #44900

While their third full-length, At War With, inundated the masses in 2013, Mammoth Lake, California-based black/death trio VALDUR has remained secluded from band actions for several months, but now the cult confirms their upcoming emergence from their Sierra Nevada catacombs for a special live performance, as well as the penning of new material.

On July 9th, VALDUR will invade Sacramento to provide direct support for the only West Coast appearance of the mighty Sargeist, the bill also including Killgasm and Pale Chalice.

Collectively issues the VALDUR clan of their impending activities, “We chose to step back and remain quiet for a while by not playing live or being active as a band, besides releasing At War With at the end of last year. But we have agreed to play a special Sacramento show set up by our friend Jaime from Killgasm. The plan is to then retreat back into privacy here in our mountain town of the Eastern Sierras and continue to compose some strange music indeed….”

_________________________________

VALDUR Live:

7/09/2014 Starlite Lounge – Sacramento, CA w/ Sargeist, Pale Chalice, Killgasm [info]

Further information on VALDUR will be released later in 2014 upon the completion of their next recorded works. In the meantime, the first run of At War With CDs has already sold out, and the cassettes are already running low, so get em while you can via bloodymountainrecords.com.

Recorded at Earhammer Studio with Greg Wilkinson and mastered by Michael Z. (Secrets of the Moon, Ascension) at Source Studios, At War With douses its listeners with ten punishing hymns of audio abhorrence. A grotesque outpouring of war marches, harrowing riff torrents, possessed vocal tirades, fanatical blastbeats and an all-consuming atmosphere of chaos, apprehension and maniacal discontent, At War With proves VALDUR as one of America’s best kept extreme metal secrets.

Featuring past and current members of Weverin, Endless Blizzard and Plutocracy, the band was forged at the turn of the century in a small mountain town located in the pulsating heart of the Sierra Mountains where the Death Valley desert lands meet the ascending Mt. Whitney and where the unholy trio dwells without interference of fashionable scenes or rulebooks.

Metal Fists 5 Metal Odyssey

ANNIHILATION – The self-released single, The Great Cycle, from Portugal’s ANNIHILATION has been available since May 1st and this scathing offering of Technical Death Metal has been destroying my Metal senses ever since! Please sirs, may I have more?

If you are a confirmed DeathMetalAholic like myself, this new firestorm of 100% Death Metal extremity from ANNIHILATION is for your brain cells to absorb! If what I take in from this overpowering sound of deadly madness is any indication, The Great Cycle is a grand prelude of what’s to come from this Portuguese Technical Death Metal troupe in 2014 and 2015.

Day Of Doom - The Gates Of Hell - promo cover pic - 2014

Czech Metal label Lavadome Productions is proud to announce the June 6 release of The Gates of Hell from beastly NYDM trio DAY OF DOOM.

Dwelling in the underground of Long Island, DAY OF DOOM’s third album is the first to be released on a label. The new material represents the raw, sickening, and undeniable brutality of early New York Death Metal, sending the listener back to a time when every new album sounded fresh and exciting; the sole aim to create music that delivered a punch to the face and a kick in the gut. That’s the sound of The Gates Of Hell, a stab of bludgeoning, uncompromising force played with skill and passion. The cover art was conceived by the mighty Raul Gonzales.

RIYL: SUFFOCATION, GORGUTS, MORBID ANGEL, HUMAN REMAINS, RIPPING CORPSE, and old school Death/Thrash.

Album track “Slaughter of The Lamb” is now streaming:

Track Listing:

The Gates of Hell
Fathers Lies
Embrace your Demise
Slaughter of the Lamb
An Evil Demoncy (The Last Days of Doom)
Circle of Eternal Aftermath
The Vomitorium Angel
Feasting on the Flesh of the Godly Ones
Reborn Through Oblivion Flames
Through Horrible Despair
Remnants in the Cavern of Displeasure

BELPHEGOR – “CONJURING THE DEAD” ARTWORK RELEASED!

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on May 8, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Belphegor - Conjuring The Dead - promo cover pic - 2014

Diabolical Death/ Black Metal giants BELPHEGOR have just revealed the cover design of their forthcoming album ‘CONJURING THE DEAD’. 
The artwork was created by Greek artist, Seth Siro Anton who also painted the cover of ‘Pestapokalypse IV’ in 2006.

Helmuth comments:

“The spectacular cover, the offensive lyrical content, the Death Musick. BELPHEGOR´s nine new sound collages are a new dimension of intensity and dynamics.”

Seth adds:

”Once you can customize the basic principles of Renaissance painting and deriving energy/data from chaotic reservoir of unconscious… you get BELPHEGOR´s “CONJURING THE DEAD” cover art.”

‘CONJURING THE DEAD’ was recorded at Mana Studios in Florida under the direction of Eric Rutan. Three and a half years have past since the highly praised album ‘Blood Magick Necromance’ was released. BELPHEGOR are back to conquer – possessed, on fire and stronger than ever!

The tenth studio album of one of the most bizarre and authentic bands in the world of Metal will be unleashed on August 8th (EU/ North America) and August 11th (UK/FR) via Nuclear Blast.

LOCUSTA – Ohio Technical Grinding Death Unit Announces Live Takeover

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on May 3, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Locusta - tour flyer - May - June - 2014 - #01200

After a two-year hiatus, Ohio Technical Grinding Death Metal peddlers, LOCUSTA, will be embarking on a live takeover through the East Coast this Spring! Slated to commence on May 13th in Raleigh, North Caroline, LOCUSTA will rape faces through Columbia, Knoxville, Columbus, Washington DC, Baltimore, Brooklyn, Providence, Portland, Philadelphia, Harrisonburg and Richmond with additional incursions to be announced in the coming weeks. The band will be joined by drummer Alex Tomlin (Battlemaster, Arsis, Withered et al).

LOCUSTA is currently putting the finishing touches on their as-yet-untitled full-length tentatively scheduled to drop later this year. In the meantime, ravaging preview track, “Contaminant Remains,” will appear on the band’s forthcoming, four-track Dendromorphosis EP which also includes a molten rendition of Death’s “See Through Dreams,” and artwork by renowned designer Lucas Ruggieri (BlackTusk, Kylesa, Ghoul, cough et al). Dendromorphosis will be available for purchase at all upcoming tour dates.

Comments the band of their forthcoming live offensive: “We’re looking forward to hitting the road again after such an agonizingly long break from touring and to what we’re anticipating will be some of the best shows we’ve ever played, both in respect to the caliber of the bands we’re billed with and the fact that our live sets sound tighter than they ever have before. Our set lists will mostly contain songs from the new album, including the first track we’ve ever written that extends past the nine-minute mark, which is easily the darkest and most epic piece of music we’ve written so far. There is more grinding technicality than before, but the songs are also much more mature from a songwriting point of view than what you hear on our first album. We’re excited to be sharing this time in the band with all of our new and old friends on the road, but…no survivors.”

View some live LOCUSTA debauchery, below:

 ________________________________

Formed in the fall of 2006, LOCUSTA take their name from a female chemist from Ancient Rome regarded as the first documented serial killer. LOCUSTA released their debut full-length upon an unsuspecting underground in 2010 which is available for download/purchase via their official bandcamp page HERE.

Critical Praise: 

“I got dinner at the bar while LOCUSTA played their set. Melodic, technical death metal in the vein of Spawn Of Possession or Decrepit Birth, the band brought the riffage with a vengeance. Health notice: The surgeon general has advised that discreetly headbanging with a mouthful of food is a choking hazard. But totally worth it.” - NoCleanSinging.com

LOCUSTA. Why isn’t this band huge? Serious death metal from Columbus shredded bar and house shows alike and smote their victims with ease.” - The Athens News

LOCUSTA is one of the best underground metal bands out there right now; seriously one of the highest underground-to-quality-music ratios possible…Totally real-deal, bad-ass performers, worth the money and time spent x1000.”  - Day After Day DC

Craving - Danish tv commercial pic - 2014

Since 2006, CRAVING has masterfully blended Black and Death metal with soaring melodies and folk influences. In October of last year, Apostasy Records released the band’s sophomore album, At Dawn. With lyrics written in German, Russian and English and a noticeable progression from their 2012 debut, At Dawn stands as one of the most intriguing and varied records in recent memory. Guest appearances on At Dawn include Helge Stang (Ex-Equilibrium), Chris Caffery (Ex-Savatage), Niels Löffler (Ordan Ogan) and Agalaz (Obscurity). The official music video for CRAVING’s cover of “Only Teardrops” can be seen below:

SEPREVATION – Release New Music Video ‘Slave To The Grave’

Seprevation - promo band pic - 2014 - #66930

On the run up to the release of their debut album ‘Consumed’, UK Death Thrashers Seprevation today release a music video for ‘Slave To The Grave’.

Guitarist Joss Farrington comments: “The concept was to play on the themes of ‘Slave to the Grave’ and actually give the viewer the visual image of us decaying and covered in gore.”

‘Slave To The Grave’ was shot in the bands home city of Bristol, England at RS Studios and it was directed & edited by Doug Anderson of Visceral Video with a helping hand from Janey Hayes who took care of the special FX make up.

Watch ‘Slave To The Grave’ Here!

Seprevation - Consumed - promo cover pic - 2014

“Truly evil sounding Death Metal from Bristol, true to the 80′s and 90′s masters. For fans of Death, Possessed, Sadistic Intent etc.” – Terrorizer Magazine

That aforementioned is just one of many descriptions made of the Death/Thrash maniacs. Formed in 2011 in Bristol, England; since their inception Seprevation have been quick to cause a riot, touring throughout the UK with a battery of hate filled lyrics and a sound to kick your pearly whites to dust, Seprevation are here for a reason and one reason only… to shatter and destroy.

May 10th 2014 will see the release of ‘Consumed’, the debut full length album and follow-up to EP ‘Ritual Abuse’.

Joss comments on ‘Consumed’: “I think fans of ‘Ritual Abuse’ will really like it, it’s more of the same in many ways, plenty of shred and old school worship but it’s definitely steering in our own direction, as the writing process went on the songs became more and more diverse, songs like ‘Between Two Worlds and Dreams’ were written last and you can really hear the difference.”

“If you thought ‘Ritual Abuse’ was pretty great then buy this because it’s 100 times better, 3 words – Old School Worship.”

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, metal bands, metal music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on April 24, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Inanimate Existence - A Never Ending Cycle Of Atonement - promo cover pic

California Technical Death Metal faction, INANIMATE EXISTENCE, who feature within their ranks members of Brain Drill and Son Of Aurelius, will unleash their sophomore effort, A Never-Ending Cycle Of Atonement, this Summer via Extreme Metal merchants, Unique Leader Records.

Tracked by Max Zigman (Son Of Aurelius, Smaragos) at Parade Outrageous in Santa Cruz and produced by Zack Ohren (Light This City, All Shall Perish, First Blood, Cattle Decapitation, Warbringer et al) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, A Never-Ending Cycle Of Atonement boasts eight conceptual tracks of progressive punishment.

The follow-up to 2012′s Liberation Through Hearing, which MetalSucks championed for its “erie, psychedelic themes richly animated by the grandiose contrast between shamanic atmosphere and uncompromising brutality,” finds INANIMATE EXISTENCE’s signature, over-the-top compositions elevated to an entirely new level of profundity. Each movement marvels at its own innovative density as intricate guitar structures coil seamlessly around complex rhythms and infernal vocal tirades, all the while maintaining an absorbing magnetism that draws exploratory listeners in with each new measure.

Inanimate Existence - promo band pic - band logo - 2014 - #03703

The record includes several guest musicians who offer female vocal accents, clarinet, bass flute, harp, bongos and other nuances to the proceedings, only adding to the record’s already confounding depth.

A Never-Ending Cycle Of Atonement – Track Listing:

1. Om Mani Padme Um
2. Omen
3. Bioluminescent Photophores
4. The Rune of Destruction
5. The Catacomb Of Mirrors
6. Staring Through Fire
7. Out of Body Experience
8. Dueling Shadows

INANIMATE EXISTENCE’s A Never-Ending Cycle Of Atonement will be released on June 24th, 2014 via Unique Leader Records. Special preorder bundles will be available in the coming weeks. In the meantime, wrap your head around the album teaser below:
