Horoma Exordium - Band promo pic - band logo - 2016 - #MO66ILMFSO6933

Horoma Exordium are a Black Metal band hailing from Glasgow Scotland. Consisting of Aghast on instruments and recording and Bhaldraithe on vocals. It was born with a vision to create a ferocious incarnation of Black Metal whilst infusing other elements of Extreme Metal.

The new single from Horoma Exordium is as vile and poisonous a listen into Black Metal as I could ever wish for. This is Black Metal extremity at a very, very bang-up level, my fellow Metal brethren! This song is just as potent in its speed as it is on its fierceness. Musically and vocally this song encapsulates extreme Black Metal.

The breakdown half-way through the song doesn’t give me much room to catch my breath or slow my heart rate and it makes sense quite honestly. If you adore your Black Metal at its most crazed and evil level, then Horoma Exordium will answer your blackened call. Metal Be Thy Name – Stone.

For fans for Gorgoroth, Emperor, Anaal Nathrakh, Burzum, Satyricon and Mayhem.

https://noiredarkmetal.bandcamp.com/

Originally released on July 8th 2016. The EP is a six-track tour-de-force that melds Black Metal with acoustic and ambient-like stylings, resulting in a truly unique sound.

The Tracks of the Hunted takes the fury and darkness of Black Metal and transforms it into something both beautiful and menacing at the same time. This EP demands a full and immersive listen. Piano and acoustic guitar are front and center for much of this record, weaving around a central pillar of majestic Metal which draws from Enslaved and Opeth in influence while the softer moments recall Agalloch’s experimentation. Broad chested chants blend with snarls and fierce guitar lines.

ABOUT HELLEBORUS:

Conceived within the womb of Execration, HELLEBORUS is the latest emanation of Jerred & Wyatt Houseman. Like the enigmatic and deadly winter flower from which the project takes its name, Helleborus pushes the exploration of traditional Black Metal into the uncharted territory of sensual duality and mysticism. Building on their professional experience with Execration and personal experiences through Akhenaten, the Houseman brothers sought a deeper expression of their experiential-driven musical style that audiences can connect with through a union of opposites.

“We’ve always had a vision for the type of Black Metal project Helleborus would be. We wanted to explore and deliver a darker and yet more romantic side of Black Metal. There is an unknown side of Metal that is masculine and powerful, yet sensual and respectful; controlled chaos.” comments vocalist Wyatt Houseman.

Album Band Line Up features: Wyatt (vocals, lyrics) & Jerred Houseman (producer, all instruments)

Live Band Line Up features: Brent Boutte’ – Drums, Jerred Houseman – Guitar & leads, Wyatt Houseman – Voice, Ian Horenman – guitar & rhythms, Michael Hylands – Bass

VERWOED – Cult Black Metal Outfit, Formerly Named Woudloper, To Release New Bodemloos LP Via Argento Records In July

Posted in Black Metal, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music with tags , , , , on June 4, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

Verwoed - Bodemloos - promo album cover pic - 2016 - #MO99ILMFSO4321

Argento Records proudly confirms the label’s next official release, with a newly recorded album by Dutch Black Metal act, VERWOED, titled Bodemloos, marking the outfit’s first recordings since converting from the moniker, Woudloper.

Utrecht-based soloist Erik B. began paving his path of destruction as one-man project, Woudloper, in 2014, creating an ethereal yet scathing style, heavily rooted in traditional Black Metal, yet reaching into more psychedelic realms of inspiration. Breathe Plastic released a critically acclaimed, self-titled demo tape in 2015, yet immediately subsequent to its release the project changed its name to VERWOED, as an even more exploratory epoch of the band was taking place.

On the maiden official VERWOED release, Bodemloos sees this artisan peeling back even more layers of this project, exposing incredibly dense and much more psychedelic and hallucinogenic cosmic textures than before, while remaining yielding in its nihilistic and violent tactics. Bodemloos brings three massive new movements into existence, its immersive tones recorded, mixed, and mastered by John Bart Van Der Wal (Aborted, Herder), the album completed with cover artwork created by Joost Vervoost (Terzij De Horde). Argento Records will release Bodemloos on CD, digital, and 180-gram one-sided LP, the vinyl’s B-side featuring an etching handled by Reuben Sawyer (Chelsea Wolfe, Hollow Sunshine), on July 8th. Audio samples, preorders and further info on Bodemloos will be issued in the days ahead.

Following the release of Bodemloos, VERWOED will transform from a solo outing into a five-piece lineup, and begin performing live, the first shows to be announced shortly.

ISKRA – Southern Lord To Release CD Version Of “Ruins” By Canadian Anarchist Black Metal Outfit In July; Summer Tour Confirmed

Posted in Black Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music with tags , , , , , on May 29, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

Iskra - Ruins - promo album cover pic - 2016 - #MOILMF999

Blistering anarchist Black Metal unit, ISKRA, has teamed up with Southern Lord for the CD release of their latest LP, Ruins. Approaching the most fearsome of all genres from a foundation in filthy metallic crust, ISKRA has skillfully created an old school orthodox epic that their extensive back catalog has always been working towards, and in Ruins is executed in sublime, scathing style.

The Canadian collective, almost two decades into their journey as ISKRA, stands out as staunch advocates of anarchism, and reject all forms of oppressive mainstream ideologies such as communism, fascism and democracy. To underline this, they coined their unification of extreme punk anger and Black Metal sonics “anarchist metal,” separating themselves from other acts deemed as “extreme” or “radical” but lacking conviction or real menace.

It is certainly evident in their vitriolic offensives that they mean business, but most impressive is the sharp, refined songcraft that makes Ruins a compelling Black Metal record, regardless of your political (dis)orientation. The constantly shifting tremolo riffs and blasting drums are some of the most devastating and aggressive you will hear, and fans of Absu and early Immortal will find plenty to enjoy – ISKRA exerts overwhelming levels of energy and brutality in Ruins, outpacing and outwitting the vast majority.

ISKRA have toured across scores of countries with countless acts operating in various subsects of underground Punk and Metal and have built up a fearsome international reputation, demonstrated by their heavy patch presence on the battle jackets of the true. A wealth of DIY and independent label releases trails behind them, with numerous albums, splits and demos all available to download for free from their website in accordance with their principles.

Southern Lord will issue ISKRA‘s Ruins on digipak CD including a twenty-page booklet with lyrics and liner notes on July 1st.

Ruins – Track Listing:
1. Lawless
2. Ruins
3. Predator Drone MQ-1
4. Traume
5. Nihil
6. Illegal
7. Aegis Of The Victor
8. Der Einzige
9. Lebensraum
10. Battle Of One Hundred Slain
11. Masqueraders Of Fraud
12. Thieves Of Life
13. Privileged Morality

ISKRA also proudly announces the Anarchy Attack… Canadian Destruction (Storming the Atlantic) Summer Tour of Canada, their first major tour of Canada since 2004. This tour will mark the band’s first coast to coast tour of the country and includes five days in the maritime provinces. The tour also features appearances at the legendary Spider Fest (formerly Spider Acres) in Meyersburg, Ontario and Evil Fest in Sainte-Angele-de-Merici, Quebec. The band’s full live itinerary will be announced in the days ahead.
