ULTHAR – Bay Area Death Trio Begins North American Tour; Trailer Posted

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on March 22, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

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.

HIDEOUS DIVINITY – Italian Death Metal Collective Prepares To Unleash Third Full-Length, Adveniens” Via Unique Leader This April; Details Revealed

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on February 2, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

hideous-divinity-adveniens-promo-cover-pic-2017-33mo793ilmfso

Italian Death Metal collective HIDEOUS DIVINITY, featuring within its ranks current and former members of Hour Of Penance and Aborted, are preparing to unleash their third full-length via Unique Leader this Spring. Titled Adveniens and scheduled for release on April 28th, the follow-up to the band’s critically lauded Cobra Verde long player was recorded, mixed and mastered at Stefano Morabito’s 16th Cellar Studio (Hour Of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse etc.) during the Autumn of 2016, includes a rendition of Sinister’s “Embodiment Of Chaos” and finds HIDEOUS DIVINITY offering up their darkest material yet.

“It may be pretentious to talk about evolution inside our musical genre, this is what Adveniens truly means for us,” elaborates guitarist Enrico Schettino. “Just when we believed that with Cobra Verde we reached a point of no return, our songwriting turned even more dark and monumental. Although we’ll never consider ourselves close to Lucyfyre, Adversarial, Deathspell Omega, and Akhlys, the influence of this new wave of obscure Metal on us these last years has been massive. The result is our most epic Death Metal effort ever conceived. ”

Stefano Morabito and his 16th Cellar Studios set up a new standard with the production of Adveniens,” he continues. “Never before has our sound reached such a level of uncompromising intensity without sounding forced or overproduced. The maniacal efforts made to perfect every single drum beat, vocal line and guitar chord almost caused a nervous breakdown but it truly paid off.”

“The entire album is a reflection on history and time, on the succession of futile ages, on the role of the poet as soothsayer and witness of the winds of time erasing each one of these ages from the face of the earth. A reflection on Walter Benjamin predicting the ‘adveniens’ of David Cronenberg, on Professor O’Blivion predicting an era when ‘all of us will have special names.’ Adveniens is a violent reflection on art.”

Further info on Adveniens, including teaser tracks and preorders, to be unveiled in the coming weeks.

hideous-divinity-adveniens-promo-cover-pic-2017-33mo793ilmfso

Adveniens – Track Listing:

  1. Ages Die
  2. Sub Specie Aeternitatis
  3. Passages
  4. Angel Of Revolution
  5. Feeding Off The Blind
  6. When Flesh Unfolds
  7. Messianica
  8. Future In Red
  9. 9. Embodiment Of Chaos (Sinister cover)

Forged in 2007, HIDEOUS DIVINITY quickly established itself as one of the strongest rising European Death Metal acts, thanks to their signature brand of technical yet gloomy classic styled Death Metal. Often compared to the likes of Nile, Hate Eternal, and Immolation, the band’s two Unique Leader releases – 2012’s Obeisance Rising and 2014’s Cobra Verde – led to a successful European tour with Cannibal Corpse and Krisiun in the Spring 2016, as well as appearances at some of the most esteemed European Extreme Metal fests during the last few years.

The band will be playing several festivals this Summer including Colony Open Air in Italy July 23rd and Stonehenge Festival in the Netherlands on July 29th. Additional performance to be announced in the coming weeks.
