DEMON HEAD - promo band pic - 2017 - #33MO090ILMFS

Psych/Doom metal band DEMON HEAD have teamed up with PureGrainAudio.com to stream “We Are Burning”. The track is taken from their album Thunder On The Fields which will be released in North America on July 7th 2017.

Stream the track here: http://puregrainaudio.com/audio/demon-head-drop-some-doomy-heavy-rock-with-new-single-we-are-burning-exclusive-premiere

About DEMON HEAD:

After a demo tape that quickly sold out, the Winterland 7” came shortly after the bands’ first tour of Scandinavia  In the early days of spring 2014, Demon Head travelled to a small house in the country side near the infamous Heather Hills and recorded eight songs for their debut album Ride the Wilderness. The record was released a year later and the first press sold out in a matter of months. The acclaim of the underground was significant and the album was praised for its skilled songwriting, warm production and a certain sinister catchiness.

As 2017 begins, the new album Thunder on the Fields will be released on The Sign Records. While staying true to their signature sound, the songwriting is more refined, the songs more gritty and burning with urgency.

With new travels being planned in Europe and overseas, there is indeed lightning on the horizon and thunder on the fields.

Texas Doom Duo CANYON OF THE SKULL Releasing ‘The Desert Winter’ August 19th

Posted in doom metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on June 24, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Austin (TX) –  CANYON OF THE SKULL has returned! The instrumental Doom duo of guitarist Erik Ogershok and Adrian Voorhies (Humut Tabal) will release sophomore album The Desert Winter on August 19. The CD version will be available in a gorgeous 6-panel format.

Consisting of the undeniably epic 37-minute title track of blackened doom, The Desert Winter is a journey deep into the psyche. Listeners are strongly advised to clear out all head space (and any earwax) and settle in for this existential Ride of the Doomed!

Recorded at WoodenHorse studios October 2016.

Mixed and Produced by Zawicizuz and Canyon of the Skull.

Mastered by Proscriptor McGovern (Russ R. Givens) at Nox Luna Inlustris Music.

Artwork Layout and design by Erik Bredthauer.

Adrian Voorhies – Drums, Percussion

Erik Ogershok – Guitars, Bass, Percussion

BAND BIO:

The brainchild of Erik Ogershok, COTS was initially manifested in the winter of 2006. Several local appearances and lineup fluctuations later, life happened, and the project lay dormant. 2014 saw the return of Ogershok as he recruited new musical personnel in the form of drummer Adrian Voorhies of the Austin-based Black Metal outfit HUMUT TABAL and once more brought the doom ensemble to life to melt the faces of all who sought shade in the Canyon walls.

After numerous regional gigs both opening for touring colleagues and spearheading an array of craft beer events and festival slots (including two SXSW appearances), the band closed the year with a blistering performance at the End of the World Fest in Houston alongside Austin brethren The Sword and Eagle Claw. 2015 saw the creation of the band’s first recording, a self-titled EP solidifying the now scaled down duo of Ogershok and Voorhies as a force to be reckoned with in the Texas doom scene.

With the EP capturing some attention, they embarked on a two-week tour of the Midwest, bringing their signature brand of instrumental doom from the Twin Cities to Louisville. Once home, the band commenced production on their most ambitious musical effort yet with rare selected live performances across the lone star state. In October, they headed back into Wooden Horse studios with an A-list production team of Zawicizuz (The Black Moriah) and Proscriptor McGovern (Absu) and their sophomore offering was forged. Now, as the band prepares to release The Desert Winter, only one message can truly be counted on: Abandon All Hope.

NECROT – “Blood Offerings” Enters Billboard Charts – US Tour With Undergang To Commence Next Week

Necrot - Blood Offerings - Billboard album flyer - 2017 - #330MO33ILNF

“Blood Offerings is all old ground, but it is hallowed earth. We’ve heard everything played on this album before, but we’ve never heard it played quite like this. If you’re that curmudgeon who keeps saying nothing can displace your aging death metal album collection, it might finally be time to buy a new record.” – Decibel

Blood Offerings is the newest studio recording from Bay Area death cult NECROT. Released via Tankcrimes on June 9th, the record earned the #29 spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart and #52 on Billboard’s New Artist Chart upon its first week of release!

The eight ravaging tracks comprising NECROT‘s Blood Offerings were captured by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer (Vastum, Graves At Sea), mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Gatecreeper), and comes shrouded in the unhallowed cover art of Marald Van Haasteren (Bolt Thrower, Baroness). Blood Offerings is out now on CD, LP, and digitally on Tankcrimes and on cassette through Sentient Ruin Laboratories. The limited vinyl edition comes as a foil-stamped, gatefold deluxe LP available in four-color variants: 150 in purple splatter, 350 in gold splatter, 500 in black, and 1000 in gold.

Stream the record in full at THIS LOCATION where you can also purchase the record digitally.

Find physical preorders at THIS LOCATION.

NECROT will embark on the month-long North American tour with Denmark-based Death Metal tyrants, Undergang, beginning June 30th and rolling through July 29th. The band will also make their way to Europe this fall for a journey that will include stops at Bloodshed and Graveland Fests. Further details to be unveiled in the coming weeks.

Forged in 2011, NECROT – founded by current and former members of Acephalix, Vastum, Saviours, Watch Them Die, Atrament, Rude, and more – unleashed the audio bone-crush of their The Labyrinth full-length in 2016 via Tankcrimes. Spewing forth eight tracks amassed from three hard-to-find and long out-of-print demo tapes, the record reaped critical acclaim from fans and media alike compelled by the band’s unrepentant Autopsy, Bolt Thrower, and Sacrilege worship.

“Metaphorically, it’s like putting your ear up to the chest of a rotting corpse and listening to the parasites eat it from the inside out. NECROT has recorded an album so putrescent you can almost smell it.” – Paste Magazine

“…an album that does the region’s growling, guttural legacy proud, and with a new layer of contemporary punch.” – Treble

“…raw, fast and razor-sharp… a pummeling at its finest!” – Metal Assault

“…Blood Offerings separates itself from the pack by offering, in addition to blood, some damn fine riffs.” – Last Rites

“Engrossing from start to finish, NECROT have crafted a death metal masterpiece in Blood Offerings”that looks reverently towards the genre’s past while casting its own deadly shadow for the future.” – Riot Nerd

DEMON EYE – North Carolina Occult Metal Unit To Release “Prophecies And Lies” Full-Length Via Soulseller Records – New Single Streaming + Band To Play Maryland Doom Fest This Weekend

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on June 22, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

North Carolina-based DEMON EYE will unleash their third full-length, Prophecies And Lies, via Soulseller Records later this summer.

A monolithic display of mighty riffs, haunting melodies, and fist-raising anthems, the eleven-track burner was recorded by Corrosion Of Conformity’s Mike Dean in the band’s hometown of Raleigh and finds their fiery fusion of heavy classic rock, proto metal, and traditional doom at its most intense to date. DEMON EYE conjures vintage, heavy darkness for modern-day evils.

Prophecies And Lies will be released on August 11th on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. In the meantime, sample album opener, “The Waters And The Wild,” at THIS LOCATION and below:

In related news, DEMON EYE will play this year’s edition of the Maryland Doom Fest alongside Captain Beyond, Lo-Pan, Brimstone Coven and more. The band will also play a record release show in August with Captain Beyond with additional live performances to be announced in the weeks to come.

DEMON EYE:
6/23/2017 Cafe 611 @ Maryland Doom Fest – Frederick, MD

8/18/2017 Pourhouse – Raleigh, NC w/ Captain Beyond [info]

Prophecies And Lies Track Listing:
1. The Waters And The Wild
2. In The Spider’s Eye
3. The Redeemer
4. Kismet
5. Infinite Regress
6. Dying For It
7. Politic Devine
8. Power Of One
9. Vagabond
10. Prophecies And Lies
11. Morning’s Son

DEMON EYE was unearthed in Raleigh, North Carolina during the Spring of 2012. Shortly thereafter, the band began receiving international recognition for their highly acclaimed songcraft and stunning live performances. DEMON EYE channels the introspective darkness of Pentagram, the heavy grooves of Black Sabbath, and the fist-banging shred of early Iron Maiden. They have shared the stage with the likes of Pentagram, Corrosion Of Conformity, High On Fire, Spirit Caravan, The Obsessed, The Sword, King’s X, Loincloth, YOB, Witch Mountain, Lord Dying, and many more of their heavy brethren.

In early 2014, the band issued released their Soulseller Records debut, Leave The Light, which met with excellent worldwide reviews and earned them festival invites. Three years into their career, they released Tempora Infernalia which brought them to even wider audiences and solidified their fan base within the international Metal community. Sputnik Music placed it among the “strongest albums 2015,” About.com lauded a, “fine offering of smoky, doom-tinged ’70s-style occult rock with reverent nods to Deep Purple, The Scorpions, Black Sabbath and Thin Lizzy,” while Decibel Magazine hailed the band’s, “doomy, very melodic dourness,” adding, “there’s no reason to not get pumped.”
