Spain’s SEPULCRHAL Releasing “From Beyond The Burial Mound” On Soulseller Records in February

Posted in Metal, Music, Death Metal, metal music, news, music news with tags , , , , , , on January 20, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Bilbao (ES) – Soulseller Records proudly presents From Beyond The Burial Mound, the full-length debut album from Spanish death metal maggots SEPULCHRAL! The album will be released February 25 on CD, vinyl LP, and digital formats.

The album’s first single, “Harbor of Drifting Souls,” is available on all digital platforms, including youtu.be/dLyjBrFb3gw.

SEPULCHRAL crawled out of the coffin when main composer Dusk wanted to release some old school death metal in the vein hof the old European bands. He composed four songs in 2015, but it was not until 2016 that he and the guitarist Wolf recorded a demo with two of those tracks called Rest In Sepulchral Darkness. After the nice reception the duo recorded a second demo the following year, Dust Of The Rotting Dead, but this time accompanied by new member Gaueko, who was in charge of the guitars and some vocals.

In 2018, Wolf left the band, and Dusk and Gaueko continued with the recording of an EP (Graveyard Repugnance) that they released in 2019. In 2020 Dusk recruited a new member to take care of the guitars and drums, leaving Gaueko in charge of vocals only.

Now, SEPULCHRAL arise from the tomb with their first full-length album, packed with catchy, putrid, crusty death metal that will make you jump from your coffin! From Beyond The Burial Mound was recorded by the band members themselves, mixed and mastered by Gorka Pérez, and features cover art by Jaime P.S.

Track Listing:

  1. The Funerary Dirge
  2. Harbor of Drifting Souls
  3. Ceremony of Putrefaction
  4. Sepulchral Fumes
  5. Cursed Epitaph
  6. Coffin Miasma
  7. Tombstone Thrower
  8. Caravan of Putrid Flesh
  9. Bastards from the Grave

DESOLATE SHRINE – To Return With “Fires Of The Dying World”

Posted in Death Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , on January 17, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Finnish death metal trio DESOLATE SHRINE will reemerge from the crypts with their newest offering, Fires of the Dying World. Dark Descent Records will release the album on CD, cassette, and digital formats on March 25. Vinyl treatment coming later this year.

At long last the successor to 2017’s Deliverance from the Godless Void has been unconfined from the clandestine vaults of Dark Descent Records. Aptly titled Fires of the Dying World, Finland’s DESOLATE SHRINE delivers 46 minutes of their unique death metal possession. The masterful craftsmanship on DESOLATE SHRINE’s fifth album is unmistakable; a true portrait of a band at their absolute peak.

Yet be forewarned before indulging from the poison chalice of Fires of the Dying World for it ensnares its victims in an inescapable maelstrom of death and futility. Absolute surrender is the recommended response, as you descend into a claustrophobic trance that erases the world around and reaches into your very soul. When you awaken… nothing will be quite the same again… Let the fires burn.

Tracklist:

  1. Intro
  2. Echoes in the Halls of Vanity
  3. The Dying World
  4. The Silent God
  5. Cast to Walk the Star of Sorrow
  6. My Undivided Blood
  7. The Furnace of Hope

DESOLATE SHRINE:
RS – Vocals
MT – Vocals
LL – All Instruments

MÆNTRA – Release Drum/Guitar Playthrough Video For “Svadhisthana”

Posted in Death Metal, Extreme Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , on January 13, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

San Francisco (CA) – Brutal Death/Industrial Metal healers MÆNTRA have released a Drum/Guitar Playthrough Video for “Svadhisthana,” the first single from forthcoming debut album Kundalini Rising. Featuring Adam Houmam (drums) and Rudy Pina (guitar), the video is available at the following link: youtu.be/kW1rjY88pPg and below:

MÆNTRA will release Kundalini Rising on February 18.

A lyric video for “Svadhisthana” is also available at youtu.be/4bOyD6SQZYc. The single is streaming on Bandcamp as well.

13.8 billion years ago, the universe was born from a big bang and consciousness was created through the sound of OM. From the journey of billions of years of evolution, survival, death, rebirth, wars, peace, and music emerges MÆNTRA, a quartet committed to helping their listeners find their own personal light by playing in the darkness and embracing aggression. MÆNTRA lays their meditative lyrics on top of a unique blend of brutal death metal, industrial sounds, atmospheric tones, and intentional healing energy.

It is said that by simply playing the debut album, Kundalini Rising, the listener is brought to a state of euphoria and dissolution of the ego. Time no longer has meaning and the past and present don’t exist. Layering a sonically aggressive sound with intentional healing and empowering lyrics, this journey of releasing demons and rejuvenating the soul is grounded in a tour of the seven chakras, guiding listeners through the healing process to release tension, erase limited beliefs, and improve overall physical and mental clarity. Fans can expect in person healing through MÆNTRA’s unique live experience shortly thereafter.

MÆNTRA was formed in 2017 through the current third dimensional incarnations of guitarist and vocalist Rudy Pina and drummer Adam Houmam (Cartilage, Ghoul, Terrorizer L.A.). The universe then brought Paul Ryan (Origin) on bass/vocals and keyboardist Martin Boynton (Short Fuse) to complete the team.

Track Listing:

  1. Muladhara
  2. Svadhisthana
  3. Manipura
  4. Anahata
  5. Vishuddha
  6. Ajna

Blizzard Is Here! Finnish SHADE OF SORROW Released A New Single!

Heavy Metal Trio SLEEPLESS Release “Host Desecration” Lyric Video

Posted in Death Metal, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, rock music news, world news with tags , , , , , on February 27, 2021 by Metal Odyssey

Rising U.S. Heavy Metal force SLEEPLESS have released a lyric video for “Host Desecration,” a track from forthcoming debut EP Blood Libel. Check it out at youtu.be/MLp2iRNulEo

Original members of 80’s death metal pioneers Dead Conspiracy, Eric Dorsett and Eric Detablan have joined forces with their old friend, guitarist, singer and production machine Kevin Hahn to form SLEEPLESS. Classic, scorching Heavy Metal pulses through debut EP Blood Libel, which will be released on March 12 via Necromantic Press Records.
 
The first single from Blood Libel, “Blood Libel (A Vampire Tale),” was released late last year and is available for purchase and streaming at the following location: sleeplessmetal.bandcamp.com/track/blood-libel-a-vampire-tale
 
Heavy metal inspired by an internal need to slam accepted dogma and to shed light on a dark past that is largely forgotten, Blood Libel is the genuine article! Metal, thrash, melody, and at times, depressive introspection, add up to a memorable gut-punch of an EP.
 
“The trick is that they are meant to be a traditional heavy metal act, but the death metal history makes its way into the actual music itself, thus creating something that could be heavy/death metal? Blood Libel is a quick taste of something stellar in the making.”
– Sleeping Village Reviews
 
“A classic heavy metal EP, influenced by a determination to bring dark history into the light and change perspectives, in the process. Combining melodic thrash with bleak contemplation, ‘BL’ packs a punch.”
– Rock Queen Reviews

DISMEMBERMENT – “Once Forsaken” Now Streaming + Preorders Posted; ‘Arc Of Ancients’ LP By Ohio Death Metal Act Nears Release Through Creator-Destructor Records

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on October 7, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Creator-Destructor Records this week unleashes Once Forsaken, the lead single from Ohio death metal act DISMEMBERMENT‘s impending second album, Arc Of Ancients. The song has been set loose upon the public as the devastating new LP nears release later this month. Preorders for the record have also been issued with the new track.

In a time fueled by instant gratification and over-saturation, DISMEMBERMENT has chosen to avoid the common path. Since the band’s formation in the winter of 2010, the band has forged their own way, fueled by fierce determination and perseverance. Over recent years, DISMEMBERMENT has continued to grow into a well-oiled machine, booking their own shows, traveling, and recording and releasing albums on their own finances, while continually pushing themselves and their unique brand of metal to new heights. Their catalog includes two EPs – The Condemned (2011) and Denied Salvation (2012) and their 2014-released debut LP, Embrace The Dark.

DISMEMBERMENT has taken their unique blitzkrieg black-thrash attack across the nation many times over, including touring with greats such as Master and Solstice, and having shared the stage with the likes of Mayhem, Immolation, Morbid Angel, Gorguts, Incantation, Death Angel, and countless more.

It is only now, with the impending release of their second LP, Arc Of Ancients, that the truly destructive nature of DISMEMBERMENT‘s sound is fully apparent. Completed in recent days, the album further expands on the band’s sound from the prior album, Embrace The Dark, yet reinforces their sound with the ferocity of their earlier recordings. Arc Of Ancients was recorded and mixed by the band, mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering, and as with prior releases, the album artwork was handled by renowned artist Andrei Bouzikov.

States the band with the release of the “Once Forsaken” single, “Here at last! A new ripper hot off the press. Turn it up and bang your head!”

Stream DISMEMBERMENT’s savage “Once Forsaken” at THIS LOCATION or below:

Arc Of Ancients will be released on LP, CD, and digital platforms through Creator-Destructor on October 18th. Find preorders at the label webshop HERE and via Bandcamp HERE.

Watch for additional audio samples, and more on Arc Of Ancients to be issued in the days ahead, with tour dates to also be posted throughout the coming months.

UK Death Metallers INFECTED DEAD Unleash ‘The Rache’

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, music videos, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on October 4, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Infected Dead made a grand impression with their Lovecraftian cosmic horror debut Archaic Malevolence and have left fans salivating for more ever since. Today the band proudly reveal a blistering new single and video to sate those in wait, a track entitled ‘The Rache’ out now via Hostile Media.

Watch ‘The Rache’ Here!

https://youtu.be/uw4-5mkqVdA

The video was shot in the woods of Heathfield, Sussex UK earlier this summer with Loki Films. Vocalist Lou Ede elaborates: “The song is loosely based on the lesser known Lovecraft short story ‘The Hound’ so the main concept we had in mind was to give the allusion of the band being stalked by the titular monster, I think the director did a great job of getting that across.”

“We are delighted to finally be unleashing our first fresh track since Archaic Malevolence. It was great to be back working with Wynter Prior (producer) and work is well underway on our debut album, we’re really excited to share the first glimpse of what we’ve been up to over the past year.”

‘The Rache’ was produced by Wynter Prior, while Inner Sound overseen mixing and mastering. Luciferium War Graphics manned the helm once again for the epic artwork.

Catch Infected Dead Live in UK with Bloodshot Dawn next month!

13/10 – The Angel Microbrewery, Nottingham

VASTUM – Oakland Death Metal Quintet Releases New Single; ‘Orificial Purge’ Full-Length Nears Release This Month Through 20 Buck Spin

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, music videos, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on October 1, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Oakland death metal outfit VASTUM is preparing for the release of their gnarled fourth album, Orificial Purge. Ahead of the album’s public unveiling through 20 Buck Spin at the end of October, the new single “I On The Knife (Second Wound)” has been issued.

With lead vocalist Daniel Butler, guitarist/vocalist Leila Abdul-Rauf, guitarist Shelby Lermo, bassist Luca Indrio, and drummer Chad Gailey, Ryan Honaker provides guest strings on VASTUM‘s Orificial Purge, and Honaker and Abdul-Rauf also help shape the album with elements of ambience. Recorded with Greg Wilkinson (Necrot, Nightfell, Ulthar) at Earhammer Studios and visually represented by the brooding abstraction of San Francisco artist Laina Terpstra, VASTUM’s Orificial Purge is one of the year’s most vicious and hypnotic LPs. Fans of Bolt Thrower, Undergang, Autopsy, Necrot, Asphyx, Mortuous, Tomb Mold, and Scorched are orificially summoned to take note.

Vocalist Daniel Butler exposes of the track’s lyrical content, “‘I On The Knife’ is about psychophysical self-mutilation under the command of a thing, an it, which is gradually symbolized as an object (e.g. father, knife) that in turn reveals the self as a wound. Basically, it’s about how you’re a wound and nothing else.”

Guitarist/vocalist Leila Abdul-Rauf offers, “We felt this song – along with initial single, ‘Reveries In Autophagia’ – was the most representative of the classic VASTUM sound.”

Hear VASTUM’s “I On The Knife (Second Wound) at THIS LOCATION or below:

20 Buck Spin will issue Orificial Purge on CD, LP, cassette, and all digital platforms on October 25th. Preorders go live this week at the label webshop HERE and at Bandcamp where “Reveries In Autophagia” is now streaming HERE.

Guitar World just ran a feature on the 25 Best Metal Guitar Tones Of All Time where VASTUM‘s Leila Abdul-Rauf was featured alongside the likes of Black Sabbath, Slayer, Metallica, Entombed, Meshuggah, Danzig, Sunn O))), and more. See the piece HERE.

Having just made their return to Killtown Death Fest 2019 in Copenhagen alongside Grave, Coffins, Abhorrence, Tomb Mold, and many others in September, VASTUM has also been confirmed to play the inaugural Shadow Frost Music & Arts Festival taking over Frederick, Maryland February 21st and 22nd, 2020. The band joins The Chasm, Primitive Man, Thantifaxath, and labelmates Magic Circle as one of the event’s main headliners, and guitarist/vocalist Leila Abdul-Rauf will also perform a set from her solo/ambient project at the fest as well.

VASTUM Live:

2/21-22/2020 Shadow Frost Music & Arts Festival – Frederick, MD [info]

After four years of near silence, Oakland death metal outfit VASTUM returns with Orificial Purge, the anxiously awaited follow-up to their acclaimed Hole Below. With its members playing in Acephalix, Necrot, Ulthar, Mortuous, Ionophore, Cardinal Wyrm, and others, the band’s dedication to their craft is showcased throughout the underground. After three standout albums over the course of the last eight years, the effect of VASTUM‘s influence has by now seeped into the wider death metal scene, leaving an indelible mark due to their singular amalgam of aural primitivism and aesthetic originality. Their most markedly refined and tortured oblation to date, Orificial Purge represents the dominant return of VASTUM, a death-doom band driven by the horrors of psychic and corporeal life.

VASTUM‘s Orificial Purge offers a distinctive blend of sinister atmosphere, punishing brutality, and an unparalleled lyrical and visual imagery that traces connections between perversion, mortification, and “an abyssal mysticism of sin.” Elements from previous albums are preserved on Orificial Purge, but they are evolved and devolved at once. The usual mid-paced dirge and cave-dwelling riffs are intertwined with slicing melodic dissonance and a celestial frenzy in the solos and the leads, all of which is set against the background of a bulldozing rhythm section. The dual vocal and lyrical exorcisms of Daniel Butler and Leila Abdul-Rauf combine to deliver unsettling, dichotomous meditations on “abjection as life, life as tragedy, and tragedy as an eviscerating, eroticized rapture through which an evil and useless humanity comes into being.

ULCERATE – New Zealand Death Metal Trio Joins Debemur Morti Productions Roster; European Tour To Commence Next Month

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on March 26, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

New Zealand death metal trio ULCERATE have joined the Debemur Morti Productions roster.

Issues the band of the new union: “We are extremely happy to be moving head-first into this next chapter with a partnership that aligns so clearly with our own vision. Debemur Morti has always been in our peripheral gaze – the attention to detail and high level of curation is second-to-none.”

Death metal has always had roots in themes of humanity, darkness, and oppression, but when ULCERATE formed in Auckland, New Zealand in 2000, their unconventional approach to the genre quickly redefined the meaning of those concepts throughout death metal and beyond. The trio’s distinctive treatment of dynamics alongside in-depth lyrical content established the band as a formidable force long before they became the standard-bearers for a new era of death metal, one defined by meticulous passages of understated melodic sensibilities and jarring, tooth-scraping dissonance.

The band’s inexorable march from 2007’s Of Fracture And Failure (2007) to the unparalleled Shrines Of Paralysis (2016) has been terrifying. And it appears the best is yet to come.

Further details on the band’s as-yet-untitled new full-length will be released in the months to come. In the meantime, don’t miss ULCERATE on their upcoming European tour set to commence April 10th and run through April 21st. The trek includes an appearance on this year’s edition of Roadburn.

Bay area death trio ULTHAR will kick off a brutalizing North American tour today in Oakland, California. The trek will make its way through nearly three-dozen cities, coming to a close May 24th in Santa Fe, New Mexico. See all confirmed dates below and view the tour trailer HERE.

Featuring within its ranks Shelby Lermo (Vastum, Extremity), Justin Ennis (Void Omnia, ex-Mutilation Rites, ex-Tombs), and Steve Peacock (Mastery, Pandiscordian Necrogenesis, Pale Chalice), ULTHAR is touring in support of their Cosmovore debut LP, released late last year via 20 Buck Spin. Cosmovore was engineered, recorded, and mixed by Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil, Deathgrave) at Earhammer Studios, mastered by Justin Weis at Trackworx, and unleashes the feral urgency of dizzying, Absu-like black metal with the bludgeoning ferocity of classic death metal. Thematically heavy on weird, supernatural horror and a bizarre Rudimentary Peni surrealism, ULTHAR is a difficult to classify spectral entity.

CANNIBAL CORPSE released their acclaimed Red Before Black full-length last year via Metal Blade Records. Many words come to mind when you hear the name CANNIBAL CORPSE, but only one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), Red Before Black serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it abundantly clear who sets the standard when it comes to manifesting consistently compelling music that is as brutal as it is complex.

“Throughout our career, we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. Red Before Black continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently,” asserts bassist Alex Webster. “We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums,” adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the rawest sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest, and catchiest record.”

California Death Metal Horde DRAGHKAR To Release ‘The Endless Howling Abyss’ in July

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on May 31, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

California Death Metal Horde DRAGHKAR will release new EP The Endless Howling Abyss on July 27. The EP will be released digitally, as well as on CD format by Craneo Negro Records (500 copies) and on cassette through Nameless Grave Records (75 copies).

New song “Swallowed by the Dark” is now streaming. Listen and pre-order below:

draghkar.bandcamp.com/album/the-endless-howling-abyss

On The Endless Howling Abyss, DRAGHKAR have turned up the intensity and unleashed violence in its most lethal form. The forthcoming EP is a harrowing journey through 20 minutes of pure Hell, inspired still by the classic fires of ABHORRENCE and AMORPHIS, but now flavored by an increasing influence from the oldest days of the Greek Black and Death Metal scenes, as well as MOLESTED, MERCYFUL FATE, and more.

Track Listing:

1. Traversing the Abyss
2. Swallowed by the Dark
3. Eternal Disintegration (Of The Body And Of The Mind)
4. Fading into Emptiness

DRAGHKAR:

BW – Guitar, Vocals
Daniel Kelley – Bass
ES – Drums

BAND BIO:

Draghkar was formed in 2016 by BW as an outlet for his love of death metal. Originally a tribute to the elder days of the Finnish death metal scene, they put out their first demo on cassette with Witchhammer Productions from Thailand in 2017. It was re-released by Blood Harvest Records later that year. After a series of lineup changes, Draghkar released a split with Desekryptor in the earlier half of 2018 and have come back now with their most ambitious and original output to date, a four track EP entitled The Endless Howling Abyss.

EXHUMED – Gore Metal Merchants Announce US West Coast Tour With INCANTATION; 70000 Tons Of Metal Cruise Nears

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on January 24, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Exhumed - Incantation - 2018 Tour promo flyer - #4333ILMGOSGT8833

The Gore Metal merchants in EXHUMED will terrorize the West Coast next month alongside Death Metal veterans/labelmates Incantation. The tour commences February 22nd in Fresno, California and tramples its way through seven cities ending on March 3rd in Oakland, California. Direct support will be provided by Phobia. The journey follows the band’s appearance at the 2018 edition of 70000 Tons Of Metal alongside Cannibal Corpse, Enslaved, Goatwhore, and many others and comes in advance of their previously announced Grind Over Europe II Tour with Rotten Sound and Implore.

EXHUMED will be touring in support of their Death Revenge full-length, recently released via Relapse Records. Issues frontman Matt Harvey, “Our tireless efforts to worm our way into your ear-holes continues! We didn’t get to hit all the cities we wanted to since the release of Death Revenge, so we asked our buds in Incantation and Phobia to come out and rage with us on the West Coast. This tour will be short, fast, and extremely fucking loud, so don’t miss it. This is a call to all Death Metal maniacs, grind freaks, and nutty friends – don’t fucking pose – DECOMPOSE!”

Death Revenge sees EXHUMED tread into ambitious new territory as their first concept album; a thirteen-part musical melodrama based on shocking true events. Death Revenge takes place in the late 1820s in Edinburgh, Scotland and tells the macabre tale of a series of brutal murders where the victims’ cadavers were sold to anatomists, amid a grisly underground trade of grave-robbery. Recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Goatwhore, Gruesome), Death Revenge takes the band’s signature gore-drenched, Death Metal mayhem to theatrical and ghastly new depths.

A full collection of EXHUMED music videos and audio is available at THIS LOCATION.

CANNIBAL CORPSE – To Kick Off US Headlining Tour With Power Trip And Gatecreeper Next Week

Cannibal Corpse - Power Trip - tour flyer - November 2017 - #4MO333ILMFSO33

CANNIBAL CORPSE will kick off their US headlining tour in support of their upcoming Red Before Black full-length next week. The tour will commence on November 3rd and run through December 8th with support provided by Power Trip and Gatecreeper. See all confirmed dates below.

Many words come to mind when you hear the name CANNIBAL CORPSE, but one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), Red Before Black, the band’s fourteenth album, serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it very clear who sets the standard when it comes to always compelling music that is equally brutal and complex.

Moreover, the band have pushed themselves again, ensuring that it stands out from their catalog. “Throughout our career we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. Red Before Black continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things,” asserts bassist Alex Webster. “It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently.”

“We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums,” adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the rawest sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest and catchiest record.”

Red Before Black will see release on November 3rd via Metal Blade Records. Preorder bundles are currently available at metalblade.com/cannibalcorpse where you can also preview the title track as well as the band’s video for “Code Of The Slashers.”
