Cryptopsy - European Tour - 2014 - promo flyer

CRYPTOPSY is an Extreme Metal band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. During the past twenty years, CRYPTOPSY have wreaked havoc throughout the Metal genre by releasing six studio albums (Blasphemy Made Flesh, None So Vile, Whisper Supremacy, And Then You’ll Beg, Once Was Not and The Unspoken King), a live album (None So Live) and an EP (Ungentle Exhumation), which have confronted and invigorated the conventional approach to writing extreme music. In 2012, CRYPTOPSY returned to their roots in order to craft their newest endeavor entitled CRYPTOPSY.

INANIMATE EXISTENCE – Technical Death Metal Faction To Unleash Second LP Via Unique Leader; Album Teaser Posted

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.

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:

ALTERBEAST – Technical Death Metal Militia To Release Debut Full-Length Via Unique Leader This March; New Track Posted

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , , on January 17, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Alterbeast - promo band pic - #1 - 2013

Sacramento Technical Death Metal militia, ALTERBEAST, is pleased to unleash their full-length debut via Unique Leader this Spring! Titled Immortal, the eight track monster offering was meticulously assembled in several locals throughout 2013.

With guitars and bass recorded at Augmented Audio in Los Angeles with former The Black Dahlia Murder bassist Ryan “Bart” Williams, vocals arranged at Mayhemeness Studios in Sacramento by Bob Swanson (Rings Of Saturn, Plague Window et al) and drums tracked at Castle Ultimate Studios with Zack Ohren (Light This City, All Shall Perish, First Blood, Cattle Decapitation, Warbringer et al), who also mixed and mastered the release, Immortal promises to deliver some of the most dynamic, instrumentally adept and plainly crushing material of the year.

Elaborates vocalist Cam Rogers of the outcome:Immortal is what was spawned from hard work, dedication, and downright brutal musicianship. It has intricate solos, absolutely crushing interludes and brutal circle-pit anthems. ALTERBEAST sets the scene with grievous piano preceding the onset of ‘Flesh Bound Text’ which comes in with blistering drums and guitars effortlessly making their way around the fret board. Every piece truly has its own personality on this record, whether it’s the apocalyptic soundscapes of ‘Ancient’s Retribution,’ the devastating aggression of ‘Vile Remnants’ or the unmerciful grooves in ‘Throne of Maggots.’ This album has something for every listener and comes together seamlessly to form as a breathtaking whole. Immortal is exactly what we intended it to be: a gripping and intense death metal album.”

Liquefy your brain with the sounds of opening track “Flesh Bound Text” below!

Immortal Track Listing:

1. Flesh Bound Text

2. Of Decimus Divine

3. Vile Remnants

4. Ancient’s Retribution

5. Mutilated Marvel

6. Into Oblivion

7. Serpentspire

8. Throne of Maggots

ALTERBEAST - Large Band Logo - B&W - 2013

Formed in 2011 under the working title Gary Busey Amber Alert (GBAA), ALTERBEAST combines the teachings of The Black Dahlia Murder, Necrophagist and Spawn Of Possession with the classic Death Metal mastery of band’s like Dissection and Morbid Angel into an irate expulsion of sonic deviance. After a year of dedicated song-crafting, ALTERBEAST unleashed their first demo in 2012 and officially waged war on the populace with numerous shows opening for Deicide, Dying Fetus, Testament, Revocation, Exhumed, Severed Savior and many others. Their crushing live assaults combined with a DIY ethos quickly earned them a revered place within the local Death Metal community.

Immortal will rear its head upon the masses on March 18, 2014 via Unique Leader. Further intel, including preorder links, to be announced in the coming days.

ALTERBEAST Personnel:

Cam Rogers – Vocals
Rusty Cornell – Guitar
Andrew Lamb – Guitar
Michael Zamora – Bass
Gabe Seeber (The Kennedy Veil, Decrepit Birth, Abysmal Dawn et al) – Drums
