Canada’s NOMAD Announce Fiery New Single “Burning Alive” Off Debut Album “The Mountain” Out March 2023

From British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley in Canada, Nomad has been making a name for themselves locally for the last several years, playing at local fests and supporting big-name acts in the extreme metal scene. Now they have their debut album “The Mountain” ready for consumption and their blend of progressive, groovy death metal is sure to impress existing fans and entice new listeners. Their first single “Burning Alive” was the first song they wrote together, pieced together at their very first jam. The lyrics were inspired by the heat of that day, and the careless ignition of forest fires. They added blazing riffs, smokey vocals, and smooth bass lines to round it out, making it an impressive introduction to Nomad. They share their thoughts on the album:

“We’re hoping that it fills the need for a little groove in the metal scene. We’ve spoken to many people in the audience after playing a show that say there are not enough bands like Nomad out there that like to slow it down and catch you with a good hook once in a while. We feel that many emotions and influences can be felt throughout this album and are sure to keep the listeners engaged and entertained with heavy riffs, blasting beats, and dynamic vocals.”

There have been a few lineup changes in Nomad since their inception and each one of those members has left their mark on the band’s music. They’ve always worked collaboratively, one member bringing in the skeleton of a song and it being workshopped until it meets everyone’s standard. This had led to masterful consistency, present in every groovy riff, every chunky chord, and throughout the blasting of drums.

The single “Burning Alive” can be heard via its premiere on Bravewords HERE. ​

“The Mountain” was mixed by drummer Bretton Melanson and mastered by Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy). It is recommended for fans of Gojira, Lamb of God, and Pantera.

DEAD WILL WALK – Dutch Death Metallers To Release “A New Day Of Dawning” EP

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , on December 19, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Dutch death metallers DEAD WILL WALK are ready to present their brand new EP “A New Day of Dawning”. The band offers brooding and furious but always catchy old school death metal with sinuous melodies. 

The coming EP is set to be released on the 27th of January 2023 via Dawnbreed Records, serving as the proverbial crown to the band’s ten-year career.

Stream the first single “Concrete Wombs” HERE.

Tracklist:

  1. Raise the Horde
  2. Nightscreams
  3. Concrete Wombs
  4. From Moving Grounds
  5. Day of Dawning
  6. Headstone Tales

In the deepest and darkest corners of the very crypts that made death metal the powerhouse of undeath and shattered bone that it always has been, there has never been a better time to find yourself lost in its halls. Legions upon legions of new acts are constantly spawning in that madness to bring us new glory the like of which is naught but utterly gripping with bands like DEAD WILL WALK all but the perfect vessels for such chaos with albums like “A New Day of Dawning” all but works of art for the genre.

Overflowing with self-awareness, horrifying talent that’s exuded out of every minute of these six tracks, and a ferocious listen that wouldn’t stop for the very ending of the world, it’s clear that DEAD WILL WALK has put their best foot forward. This is what it means to make uncompromising death metal with such efficiency that can’t be seen as anything less than powerful with each second of this massive creation a conquest upon life itself that simply cannot be denied.

DEIQUISITOR – To Return with “Apotheosis”

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , on December 6, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

From beyond the confines of measurable knowledge comes Apotheosis; fast, brutal, and unearthly 90s-inspired death metal from Denmark’s DEIQUISITOR.

Comprised of veterans of the Danish scene, Apotheosis includes nine new songs recorded at Phlegm Studios in Lejre and mixed and mastered by Greg Wilkinson of Earhammer Productions. Continuing the band’s occult-driven cosmic journey, Apotheosis takes the DEIQUISITOR brand of death metal without losing the uncompromising fist-to-the-face approach heard on previous albums. Apotheosis dwells on occult science, ancient mysteries, and apocalyptic themes.

Extremely Rotten Productions and Night Shroud Records will release Apotheosis on CD, cassette, digital, and vinyl formats on January 20.

Tracklist:
Humanoid
Striving for Destruction
Autosarcophagy
The Eyes of Worms
Apophis
Reflected by the Void
Deiquisitor
Atomic Assassins
Praise the Lord

DEIQUISITOR:
Drums: Henrik B.C
Guitar and vocals: Thomas F.J
Bass and vocals: Daniel A

DEIQUISITOR was formed in 2013 by Henrik B.C and Thomas F.J, both of whom spent time in several Order of the Nonagram bands such as BLODFEST and WOLFSLAIR. The duo has returned to its roots in old-school death metal. Those familiar with Henrik and Thomas’ work in the Danish underground scene will recognize elements of the part appearing in their new material. DEIQUISITOR is fast-paced, aggressive, and atmospheric death metal influenced heavily by the sound and style of bands who ruled the genre in the early 90s.

NARCOTIC WASTELAND – Concert Review And Photo Gallery – From October 29, 2022 At King Of Clubs In Columbus Ohio

Dallas Toler-Wade – lead singer & guitarist (photo credit Stone/Metal Odyssey)

Dallas Toler-Wade and his Metal band NARCOTIC WASTELAND invaded Columbus Ohio on October 29th, opening for the powerhouse ACCEPT. Over 500 (announced) die-hard Metal maniacs assembled at The King Of Clubs on this evening, well prepared for the Metal onslaught that was to be unleashed. I was eagerly one of them. I was not denied… NARCOTIC WASTELAND pummeled my Metal senses into submission. Yes they did.

Joseph Howard – drummer & backing vocals – (photo credit: Stone/Metal Odyssey)

Between Columbus, Dayton and Cincinnati Ohio, there are TONS of music clubs and venues. With that said, I’ve never been to The King Of Clubs before this night. I’ll say this venue is very spacious, with a full bar, an upstairs dining area, outdoor sitting area and a large stage. I was impressed by The King Of Clubs and their entire staff. A first-class music venue.

Here’s a 57 second snippet (below) of NARCOTIC WASTELAND live that night. Enjoy.

Video credit: Stone/Metal Odyssey

Dallas Toler-Wade is a Metal warrior, having been an 18 year member of the brutally legendary NILE. He commanded the stage with a formidable presence and (obviously) appeared to be having a tremendous time singing and playing at every second. The crowd and band fed off each other and that’s what ignited the energy level to high. No doubt in my mind, NARCOTIC WASTELAND performed like a headliner on this night.

Brett Lee – guitarist (photo credit: Stone/Metal Odyssey)

As a live band, NARCOTIC WASTELAND plays like a cohesive Metal unit and delivers a skull numbing Death Metal attack. I’ve seen many live shows; yet I haven’t been this impressed and had this much fun since I saw CRYPTOPSY some years back.

With new singles released (“Morality and the Wasp” and “The Best Times Have Passed”) prior to this show, NARCOTIC WASTELAND also have 2 previously released studio albums to draw material from. Their blend of Death meets Thrash with threads of Trad Metal blends flawlessly together. I applaud each band member for giving it ALL at King Of Clubs that night and look forward to seeing them live again on their next tour.

Metal be thy name – Stone

Thank you to Asher Media Relations.

CULTØ – Italian Melodic Death Metallers Launch “Frost” Lyric Video, Debut Album “Of The Sun” Out Now

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Heavy Metal, melodic death metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, music videos, news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 12, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Italian melodic death metallers CULTØ have launched their new lyric video of “Frost”. The song is featured on the band’s debut album, “Of the Sun”, out now via Time To Kill Records. Watch the clip HERE or below:

CULTØ was born from an idea of mastermind Dave, who, in a very short time span, nmanaged to put together a line-up made up of well-known musicians from the Lombardy underground scene (Ghostheart Nebula, Vide, Perfidious, etc.) and record an album of nine songs.

The style of “Of The Sun” comes straight from the Gothenburg sound of the 90s (In Flames, Dark Tranquility, etc.) opening on to more aggressive musical tones. The album is not only a personal interpretation of this music style, but revolves around a message on the awakening of generative consciousness and on the power of artistic expression.

The concept of the lyrics is focused on the awareness of the artist and his creative abilities, through the metaphor of a star that, following a flare, becomes a creator and destroyer god in search of himself and his kind.

Line-up:

Dave – Vocals
Panta – Drums
Ema – Guitars
BT – Bass
John Pino Lisi – Guitars

CULTØ combine a number of genres and influences, ranging from In Flames to Bloodbath and Septicflesh, filtered through a prism of metallic extremity. The result is fierce melodic death metal, mixing the best of old and new school into their own sound.

Tracklist:

1. Flare
2. Experiment 1
3. Excrete
4. Frost
5. The Desert Of Shadows
6. Void
7. The Ashes Of Annihilation
8. Darkness Leads To Light
9. Fire From Inside

The music on the album is supported by various guest musicians, who add a sense of mysticism to an already otherworldly journey, including guitarists Jason Gobel (ex-Cynic), Santiago Dobles (ex-Cynic), Ole Borud (Extol), Ethan Mckenna (Black Crown Initiate), Max Phelps (ex-Cynic, Exist), which are sure to elevate the album’s already multi-layered, grandiose and emotional sound even further.

CASTRATOR – Release Video For “Inquisition Sins” – New Studio Album “Defiled In Oblivion” Releases On July 22nd

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Cover art for Defiled in Oblivion by Jon Zig.

New York-based old-school, all-female death squad CASTRATOR have launched the video for “Inquisition Sins,” the newest track off their forthcoming album Defiled in Oblivion. The song features a guest guitar solo from OBITUARY guitarist Kenny Andrews.

Drummer Carolina Perez, who edited and produced the video, comments on the song, “The lyrics talk about the Catholic Church dark era of the Inquisition terror when “witches were burnt alive” (regular people) for being wise or just being themselves.”

The video comes via an exclusive premiere hosted by Brooklyn Vegan. Watch “Inquisition Sins” now at this location.

With their third release to date, the New York four-piece have perfected their blend of fierce old-school USDM to a fault. More uncompromising and ruthless than ever before, CASTRATOR’s zero-fucks-given approach rips and shreds across 9 hypnotically violent new tracks (alongside a cover of Venom’s Countess Bathory) and makes Defiled in Oblivion a release to be reckoned with. Boys club beware!

Dark Descent Records will release Defiled in Oblivion on July 22. Pre-order the album at darkdescentrecords.bandcamp.com

Revolver Magazine, Brooklyn Vegan, Decibel Magazine, and Gimme Metal Radio are all offering limited edition vinyl variants of Defiled in Oblivion. Each edition is limited to 100 copies.

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

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
