4 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall4

DARKENTRIES is a Post-Sludge band from Columbia, South Carolina and one of the first signed bands to Kylesa’s new record label: Retro Futurist. Overall, this 5 song debut EP from Darkentries, The Make Believe, is a blend of extreme, macabre sound, vibes and emotions. If you can picture how the Melvins would sound being phenomenally pissed off, coupled with the dark anger of Trillion Red, then you’ll (hopefully) know what Darkentries is serving for Metal dinner… and it’s not your grandma’s mac and cheese.

With all of that above blab stated, Darkentries are unique, with an overriding Doom Metal quality and forceful energy about their Metal. If you like to be scared straight, then play this nifty EP in a total dark room by yourself. The vocals alone are an extreme showstopper and quite possibly from dark places unknown to mankind. Don’t allow the band’s look (see photo at bottom) deceive you. This band isn’t looking to share their time mulling over imported tea and biscuits; this Darkentries crew is instead looking to dominate a Metal genre and kick your eardrums into submission. Cool.

Darkentries plays at such a potent level of Post-Sludge Extreme and their Metal has an impressive enormous bite; their debut should catapult their career both among the underground dwellers and those above that know better. That’s my Metal assessment, anyways. Dig it? I sure dig Darkentries. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Hit the Bandcamp play button below and get your senses torched by Darkentries! Then buy their Metal and support this talented Metal act!

Track Listing: TV FUZZ, HONEY EATER, I’M TIRED OF BEING AWAKE, 1200-S, FEEDBACK FUNERAL

Black Label Society - Catacombs Of The Black Vatican - promo album flyer - 2014 - #035050

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY – The 9th studio album from Black Label Society was released on April 8th, 2014. The lead music video for this album is My Dying Time, which was released back on March 31st, 2014. This unreal cool music video was directed by Justin Reich.

Zakk Wylde shreds on lead guitar and kicks ass singing, per usual! You’ll also see new (and great) guitarist Dario Lorina at the beginning of this music video. Dario Lorina toured with (the late) Jani Lane and is a former member from the legendary Lizzy Borden. My Dying Time is a grand song from BLS, therefore, this music video is…

SKINFATHER “None Will Mourn” – Debut Album From SoCal Metal Band Wreaks Havoc!

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

3.5 Metal Fists Out Of 5!

Metal Fists - 3.5 - Metal Odyssey

SKINFATHER – The debut album, None Will Mourn, from Southern California’s Skinfather, will be released on April 22nd, via Streetcleaner Records. Fans of Hardcore, Death Metal and/or any Extreme Metal will get a Metal kick out of Skinfather. There’s plenty of vocal rage and cheerlessness to go around, with riff heavy, maniacal and (at times) groove laden, speed driven songs. There’s even a touch of old school Doom with the memorable instrumental Atraxia.

The thick, crunchy and relentless guitars and eruptive rhythm section of Skinfather are a damn cool listening experience, for my Metal hungry brain tissue. Definitely support and give Skinfather a listen; this band comes across as being true to the Metal model of extreme. Metal be thy name. – Stone

None Will Mourn – Track Listing: Ordeal By Fire, Drown In Black, Born Of Despair, Hellish Grave, Atraxia, Dead Still, Calloused, Planes Of Ruination, Impaled

HELSTAR – To Headline Warriors Of Metal Fest VII, With Special 30-year Anniversary Set

Helstar - promo band pic - 2014 - #77208

Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is honored to be able to welcome back the Houston, Texas Power/Speed Metal legends of HELSTAR  as the Saturday headliner for our Seventh Annual Warriors Of Metal Fest.

Band vocalist James Rivera states: “Here I go again; round three for me to appear at Warriors of Metal Festival, at its new location O’Sheckys LIVE in Columbus, Ohio!  My first time performing at WOM was when HELSTAR headlined the fest in 2012 along with MANILLA ROAD at its former grounds in Pataskala, Ohio. The band and I had an awesome experience our first time around, we were treated very well by the organizers Datis & Lea Alaee and their organization and given a warm welcome by the fans. Due to overwhelming popularity in the Midwest U.S. region and with veteran WOM festival goers, I was invited back as the headliner in 2013 to premiere my solo project, JAMES RIVERA. Once again, I received unbelievable treatment and to say the least, I’m always overly flattered by the kindness of everybody involved in WOM. Now I’ll be returning for the seventh edition of WOM Fest with HELSTAR headlining on Saturday, June 28th, and there’s no better time to have us back. We have a new album coming out on April 29th entitled “This Wicked Nest”, which will be on the streets for two months by the time we hit the stage at WOM. I feel it’s the strongest HELSTAR record to date and will embrace all HELSTAR fans, old and new, throughout the decades. We even went as far as writing an instrumental to please the neoclassical metal admirers, which features guitarist extraordinaire Jeff Loomis (NEVERMORE, SANCTUARY, CONQUERING DYSTOPIA). The most exciting part about the HELSTAR shows in 2014, is not only are we going out in support of our new album and playing many great songs from previous albums, but it also happens to be the 30-Year Anniversary of the release of “Burning Star”, our debut album that put the band on the metal map of the world in 1984.  So what we will be doing for all of our shows in 2014 (beginning with our European tour) is supporting “This Wicked Nest” and including a special 30 year salute to the “Burning Star” album. This means we will be playing an extended set with Burning Star songs as our encore.  So for the old school HELSTAR fans, this is a show you will not want to miss! WOM is the first and only confirmed Midwest appearance for HELSTAR so far this year.  Hope to see you all there!”

Illdisposed - With The Last Souls On Our Side - promo cover pic - 2014

ILLDISPOSED have finished the recordings of their upcoming album at Denmark’s Antfarm Studio! Tue Madsen is soon going to take care of the mix as well as the mastering.

ILLDISPOSED’s new album will be entitled “With The Lost Souls On Our Side”! It will be the first album with new drummer Kim Langkjær Jensen, who permanently joined the band in autumn 2013.

Lasse Hoile once again created the beautiful cover artwork. He is also responsible for the artwork of the band’s previous records “1-800 Vindication”, “Burn Me Wicked” and “There Is Light… But It’s Not For Me”.

The band also posted the following statement on their facebook page a while ago: “Since we haven’t been able to reach an agreement on a cover song to record, we’ve decided to record a new version of one of our own oldies instead!”

ILLDISPOSED’s new album “With The Lost Souls On Our Side” is set to be released on June 27, 2014 via Massacre Records!

2014 has seen UK Death/Thrash outfit Flayed Disciple back in the studio recording a new EP and follow-up to the 2012 debut album ‘Death Hammer’. Chuck Creese, who produced the ‘Ejaculate While Killing’ EP in 2010, was back at the helm recording the new record.

Guitarist Jon Whitfield comments: “The new EP will remain untitled and released on a stunning 12″ vinyl as well as digitally. This release is to showcase the bands new sound and energy, and our new drummer Rich Lewis who joined us in 2013.”

‘Flayed Disciple’ EP will be released May 24th via Bethlam Records.

Flayed Disciple - - promo cover pic - 2014

The EP contains three new tracks; ‘Sick Abomination’, ‘The Gates Of Bedlam’ and ‘The Maniac’ and with over 20 minutes of music, Flayed Disciple are set to deliver more of the epic thrash style that they began to carve for themselves on ‘Death Hammer’. A music video for ‘The Gates of Bedlam’ will also be released coinciding with the vinyl release.

Since the release of Flayed Disciple’s 2012 debut album ‘Death Hammer’, things have moved forward greatly and at great speed. With massive acclaim from the Metal media, Flayed Disciple gained coverage in mainstream magazines such as Metal Hammer & Terrorizer. The band released two music videos, ‘The Shrine Of Dahmer’ and ‘The Westboro Massacre’; the latter, which went on to reach over 90,000 views on YouTube.

Watch ‘The Westboro Massacre’ Here:

The band have toured up and down their native UK as well as Europe and beyond with heavyweights such as Vader, Aborted, Blood Red Throne, etc. The band have played numerous festivals including the UK’s Bloodstock Festival, Hammerfest and they made an appearance at the Indian Metal Fest in Bangalore alongside Gojira.

Flayed Disciple are now seasoned live players, and have a UK tour from May 18th to 24th as main support to Earache Records’ Thrash maniacs Bonded By Blood. The band also has a 13-day European tour from October 6th to 18th in support of another Earache Records’ band Cerebral Bore.

Tankard - R.I.B. - promo cover pic - 2014

German Thrash Metal heroes TANKARD just revealed the album cover for their upcoming new album R.I.B.. The artwork was brought to life by Patrick Strogulski, who is a student of Sebastian Krüger, the former TANKARD cover artist.

Mastermind Gerre states:
“R.I.B. continues the story of Chemical Invasion. The crazy professor is back is takes revenge on mankind, because he failed in 1987! The cover is done again by Patrick Strogulski, an apprentice of Sebastian Krüger and really hits the spot! As always with Tankard, things shouldn’t be taken too seriously!”

The band also released the R.I.B. track listing:

01. War Cry
02. Fooled By Your Guts
03. R.I.B. (Rest In Beer)
04. Riders Of The Doom
05. Hope Can’t Die
06. No One Hit Wonder
07. Breakfast for Champions
08. Enemy Of Order
09. Clockwise To Deadline
10. The Party Ain’t Over ‘Til We Say So

Taking inspiration from the motto “never change a winning team”, the guys did the recording again with producer Michael Mainx (BÖHSE ONKELZ, DER W, D-A-D, DISBELIEF), who also produced the last two albums.

ACCEPT – REVEAL TITLE AND ARTWORK OF NEW STUDIO ALBUM

Posted in Heavy Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , on April 6, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Accept - Blind Rage - promo cover pic - 2014

German Heavy Metal legends ACCEPT have announced Blind Rage as the title to their third studio album since their 2010 comeback and fourteenth studio album of their career. Set for release this summer in North America, Blind Rage will be produced, mixed, and mastered by Andy Sneap (EXODUS, MEGADETH, OPETH, ARCH ENEMY).

“Something happened to us, something subliminal and impetuous,” states ACCEPT guitarist and main songwriter Wolf Hoffmann. “It is wild and scary and it’s called Blind Rage! The cover artwork done by Daniel Goldsworthy shows the beast coming over us – in blind rage – all over the planet. Wherever we go, whenever you turn on the TV, there is blind rage in the works – either natural catastrophes or man-made madness.”

Proudly representing the “Made in Germany” trademark, ACCEPT fashioned distinct musical blueprints that have influenced multiple generations of followers. They have kept their music and artistry relevant around the world and have overcome staggering odds to maintain international careers for over three decades.

The band’s 2010 career comeback album, Blood Of The Nations, debuted at #25 on the iTunes Top Rock Albums chart and at #187 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. In Canada, the album debuted at #53 on the Nielsen Soundscan Top Hard Albums chart.

ACCEPT’s 2012 album, Stalingrad, debuted at #81 on the Billboard Top 200 and clinched the #13 position on the Top Independent Albums chart. In Canada, the album debuted at #101 on the Top 200 Albums chart and #7 on the Top Hard Music Albums chart.

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!”

PXérus Liévin – Vocals

Olivier Dris – Rhythm guitar

Shaun Van Calster – Lead guitar

UK death thrashers Seprevation today announces the release of their debut full-length album ‘Consumed’ which is to be independently released 10th May 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 roaming throughout the UK laying siege 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.

2012 saw the band supporting underground heavyweights Gorguts, Wormrot, Onslaught, Cannabis Corpse and many more which eventually earned the band a place at Bloodstock Festival. 2012 also marked the release of the Seprevation debut record, an EP entitled ‘Ritual Abuse’.

In 2013 the band picked up the pace signing a deal with Chaotic Tapestry Management before hitting the road with Californian Gods of gore Exhumed. That same year Seprevation jetted out to 16th Cellar Studios in Rome, Italy with acclaimed producer Stefano Morabito (Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hour Of Penance, Eyeconoclast, Acrania, Bloodshot Dawn) to lay down tracks for the debut full-length album.

A near year has dawned. Bigger, stronger and more devastating than ever, Seprevation are set to unleash hell armed with their brand new album ‘Consumed’.

Guitarist Joss Farrington comments on ‘Consumed’, “I think fans of ‘Ritual Abuse’ will really like it, its 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.”

________________________________

Raul Gonzalez is the man behind the ‘Consumed’ artwork. “He did the ‘Ritual Abuse’ art too”, comments Joss. “I suppose if there was to be a concept or theme, it would be about death, and all the bullshit that follows with it, depression, loss, escape etc., the idea of being consumed by something you cannot control.”

Overkill - White Devil Armory - promo cover pic - 2014

New Jersey Thrash Metal veterans OVERKILL will release their new album, White Devil Armory, on July 18, 2014 via Nuclear Blast. The effort was tracked at Gear Recording and will be mixed by Greg Reely, who also worked on 2012′s The Electric Age.

The track listing of  White Devil Armory will be as follows:

01. Freedom Rings
02. Where There’s Smoke…
03. Pig
04. Amorist
05. Down To The Bone
06. Bitter Pill
07. King Of The Rat Bastards
08. Another Day To Die
09. It’s All Yours
10. In The Name

________________________________

Said OVERKILL in a statement: “We are still working on the new record, but this is gonna be worth the wait, with more old-school, face-melting thrash!”

Speaking to Steppin’ Out magazine, OVERKILL vocalist Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth stated about the band’s upcoming album: “The new record has a blend of what we’ve done over the past half-decade. I’m noticing it’s a more punchy heavy metal record with more dimension than the last record had. Where is it going to end up on the food chain? I really don’t know. But my feeling is it’s an eclectic collection of moments from us. “The Electric Age” came across, to me, as kind a of two-dimensional Thrash record. This one is punchy but has a whole different bunch of ways to go and things to hear on it.”

OVERKILL released a very special limited tour edition of  “The Electric Age” in Europe on April 19, 2013 via Nuclear Blast. The limited 2CD tour edition included the regular album as well as four additional live tracks on a bonus CD, recorded at The Metro in Sidney, Australia on September 25, 2010.

Debut 7″ Available For Preorder

Annihilation is nigh, as the debut release from Philadelphia’s hypershredder trio, DIE CHOKING, prepares to break free from the internet’s restraints and into the human populous this week in a physical manifestation.

Featuring Paul J Herzog (ex-Total Fucking Destruction) on bass/vocals, Joshua T. Cohen (Cop Problem) on drums, and Jeffrey V. Daniels (Burden) on guitar, DIE CHOKING’s ungodly fast, smoldering concoction of brutal punk mayhem, breakneck grindcore, and hectic raw metal has the trio quickly becoming known across the tri-state area through their recent widespread tour actions and now beyond with their debut self-titled EP.

DIE CHOKING was recorded by Brutal Truth guitarist Dan O’Hare at his Mark It Zero Studios in New Jersey, and unloads five point-blank faceblasters in only five minutes and forty-four seconds. Following its initial digital release by the band in January, DIE CHOKING partnered with The Earsplit Compound’s label sub faction, The Compound, who will now unload the self-titled EP on vinyl, in a run of 300 copies on standard black wax with a high-gloss cover. The physical product will be transported to our barracks this weekend and will be immediately available.

Place orders for the 7″ via Earsplit Distro HERE.

Die Choking -

Amidst other upcoming shows, including an in-store at Siren Records on April 4th, DIE CHOKING was hand-picked by Decibel Magazine founder Albert Mudrian to supply local support for the Philadelphia stop the publication’s third annual national tour now underway. Featuring Noisem, Gorguts, The Black Dahlia Murder and headliners, Carcass, the trek will invade the band’s hometown on April 12th at The Trocadero Theatre. Less than two weeks after their Decibel Tour set, DIE CHOKING will hammer Western Pennsylvania ‘bangers in Pittsburgh on April 24th with The Compound label mates, Enabler. More shows are currently being planned in preparation for the band’s second EP, recorded earlier this month once again with Dan O’Hare, which is coming together for release this Summer, and will continue as they begin to set up their debut LP late this year.

Currently in full-on tour hype mode, Decibel is running an exclusive interrogation with DIE CHOKING alongside a stream of the entire EP RIGHT HERE.

Also sample newly acquired visual evidence of the trio’s speedy rage via Metal Injection’s Pit Full Of Shit HERE.

DIE CHOKING Live Actions:

4/04/2014 Siren Records – Doylestown, PA w/ Carved Up, Bardus
4/12/2014 Trocadero – Philadelphia, PA w/ Carcass, The Black Dahlia Murder, Gorguts, Noisem

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.

The band comes up with an exceptional setlist, incl. many classics that haven’t been played for a long time, fan favorites and tracks from the recent successful album “Steelhammer”. U.D.O. once again prove why they are hailed as one of the best European live bands.

“Steelhammer – Live From Moscow” will be available as DVD/2-CD, Bluray/2-CD and triple-Vinyl in Russian national colors (tricolor).

01 Intro

02 Steelhammer
