Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on November 15, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Dire Omen - Wrestling The Revelation Of Futility - promo cover pic - 2014

Wresting the Revelation of Futility from Canadian Black/Death Metallers DIRE OMEN is out now on Dark Descent Records. Order it at this location.

Stream the album in its entirety and/or purchase the digital download at:

Characterized by a progression towards the chaotic, opaque darkness that now permeates their sound, the history of the Canadian Black/Death Metallers has led to the establishment of an undeniable identity, most evident on this debut album. Utilizing abyssal, morose imagery combined with a strong sense of Thelemic ritualism, DIRE OMEN has developed a unique take on the Black/Death genre.

Track List:

Here and Hereafter (Overture)

Onward with Wounds of Disillusion

Ossuary

Hemotically Possessed

Servus Sevorum Dei

Foretold Untethering from Existence

Critical Praise:

“A stupendously powerful release that fulfills the promise that was evident in the band’s previous shorter releases.” - No Clean Singing

“Dire Omen is a black cauldron of monochromatic squalor, punishing and gripping at the same time.” - PopMatters

Posted in Black Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on November 15, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Countess - Sermons of the Infidel - promo cover pic - November 7 - 2014 - #0011

COUNTESS‘Sermons Of The Infidel’ contains a selection of 15 songs from Countess’ past. These tracks were selected by the band and all – save two live songs – were recorded again specifically for this album, throughout 2013 and 2014.

Eight of these tracks were released in 2013 as a digital-only EP. Due to popular demand, the band decided to release a physical version as well. The original eight tracks have been remixed and remastered and seven tracks have been added: five more new versions of Countess classics – including a Manilla Road cover – and two live songs, recorded at the ‘Metal Magic’ festival in Denmark this year.

Countess - live band pic - promo - 2014 - #1107

Though not an anthology in the strictest sense, this record does include many highlights from the band’s extensive discography. It is therefore a perfect record for those who aren’t familiar with Countess yet to get a first taste of the band’s unique take on metal.

‘Sermons Of The Infidel’ is released exclusively as a digipak with an 8-page booklet. The album is out now.

To get a taste of the album, listen to and watch Countess’ official video of ‘Bloed In De Sneeuw’, below. This perhaps Countess’ most well-known song as well as the first-ever Black Metal song with lyrics in Dutch. The original version was released on the band’s sophomore album twenty years ago.

‘Sermons Of The Infidel’ is out now and available from: http://countessmetal.bandcamp.comwww.heidenshart.nl and www.new-era-productions.nl

Sermons of the Infidel - Track List:

  1. Hymn To The Gods Of Yore
  2. Trumpets Of Dawn
  3. I Am The Infidel
  4. Child Of The Millennia
  5. Son Of The Dragon
  6. Sermon Of The Devil Preacher
  7. Alone Against The World
  8. Thermopylae
  9. City Of Satan
  10. Chosen By The Gods
  11. Chapel Of Doom
  12. Bloed In De Sneeuw
  13. The Veils Of Negative Existence
  14. Feuer Und Blut (live)
  15. Hell’s Rock & Roll (live)

ABOUT COUNTESS:

Countess is a Dutch band that has been unleashing metal music upon the world since 1992. Countess’ unique and harsh style of metal, characterized by an uncompromising loyalty to the old Heavy Metal and Black Metal traditions but by no means unoriginal, has certainly gone through changes over the years, but its essence has always remained the same.

The most important influences of Countess are the old Black Metal legends like Venom, Bathory and Hellhammer and traditional Heavy Metal bands like Manowar and Manilla Road.

Since 1993, Countess has released fourteen full-length albums. The most recent record, ‘Ancient Lies And Battle Cries’, was released this year.

In 2014 Countess also took to the stage again for the first time in more than sixteen years, including  succesful shows at the ‘Veneration Of The Dead’ festival in Rotterdam, ‘Under The Black Sun’ in Berlin and ‘Metal Magic’ in Denmark.

Currently, the band is rehearsing for more upcoming shows as well as working on new material. After 22 years, Countess is still going strong.

LIVE BURIAL – S/T EP Of Barbarous Deathly Doom Metal Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on November 6, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Live Burial - self-titled EP - 2014 - #66EP

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

LIVE BURIAL – The self-titled EP from Live Burial has made me proclaim it as: over  22 minutes of savage and doom ridden Death Metal, that can easily rip and tear your Metal soul apart. This is some of the most enjoyable Metal I’ve listened to in 2014; Live Burial is Death Metal with hefty doom influence that’s 100% underground and the real deal. Originating from Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK, this is a Death Metal band I’m more than elated to welcome across the Atlantic.

Jamie Brown offers up some disgustingly violent vocals and growls and the entire band plays some solid Death Metal, across 4 scathing songs, to my ears. Excellent! Live Burial prove they can play at eye-popping breakneck speed or slow it down to an evil Doom death march for the gathering of innocent mortal’s souls. The guitars without a doubt have some Tony Iommi influence snuck in there, with the rhythm section playing at a constant resounding capacity. Live Burial is an EP I won’t be forgetting about for quite some time, both nefarious and old school. Metal be thy name. – Stone

Crank Up, Support And Download LIVE BURIAL, Below! Whoa!

LIVE BURIAL – Track Listing:

1. Cast Back Into The Fire

2. Live Burial

3. Separation Through Evisceration

4. Begging For Cremation
