DRIFT INTO BLACK – Atmospheric/Experimental Gloom Metal Project Featuring Former Member Of Grey Skies Fallen Releases “Shadow People” EP; Full Stream Available

Drift Into Black - Shadow People EP - promo cover pic - 2017

For close to twenty years, Craig Rossi has handled keyboard duties for the Doom Metal band Grey Skies Fallen, recording four albums, two EPs, and two singles with the group. He’s performed numerous shows across the US sharing the same stage with the likes of Opeth, Anathema, Arch Enemy, Amorphis, and Katatonia. He’s since embarked on a new musical journey with atmospheric/experimental gloom metal project DRIFT INTO BLACK and his recently-issued Shadow People EP.

Boasting five depressive tracks, the eclectic sounds comprising Shadow People draw inspiration from a vast array of genres including dark rock, atmospheric, and Doom Metal. Rossi has taken on the task of vocals, guitars, keyboards, mixing, and mastering, along with the help of a hired session drummer. Notes Rossi, “I wanted the production on this EP to sound pale with less crisp than most records; a gloomy sound stage due to the fact that the lyrical content deals with dark human elements. If Anathema, Tiamat, Black Sabbath, and Katatonia all had a love child, DRIFT INTO BLACK would be it.”

Stream/purchase Shadow People in full via Bandcamp at THIS LOCATION or Spotify HERE.

Shadow People – Track Listing:

  1. Dawn Of A New Day
  2. Born Without Eyes
  3. A Funeral For My Enemies
  4. Drift Into Black
  5. Quicksand

Hamfero - publicity band photo - 2017 - #33MO33ILMFSO

From Metal Blade Records:

We are very excited to welcome Hamferð from the Faroe Islands to the Metal Blade roster! The band will be releasing a new album in 2018.

Hamferð comments: “We’re thrilled and proud to announce that we have signed a recording agreement with Metal Blade Records! Since we started out back in 2008 we have worked closely with our local label TUTL. The cooperation has been rewarding and our ties will not be severed completely. However, for the upcoming album and in the future we felt it was time to work with an internationally renowned metal label to hopefully help take Hamferð to the next level as a band. We feel positive and confident about Metal Blade’s setup and their commitment towards quality as the label houses many of our favorite artists and has released a ton of groundbreaking releases. Their legacy and dedication to metal music is vital. Our new record has been a long time coming. Needless to say, we are extremely excited to finally set it up for release!”

About Hamferð:

Hamferð refers to an apparition: the image of a person facing death, appearing before his or her loved ones as an omen.

“Faroese doom metal” is a powerful sound. Exclusive to this self-styled tag is Hamferð. For a near decade, the funeral dressed sextet has been casting a unique expression rooted in conceptual tragedy and intense, narrative doom metal.

“Hamferð is heavily inspired by our natural surroundings and our cultural heritage. Those aspects combine into unique feelings and atmospheres which we attempt to describe through our music”, comments guitarist Theodor Kapnas.

Faroese history and folklore are mixed together with grand atmospheres, a trademark that has earned worldwide attention. Stages at festivals such as Inferno, Midgardsblot, Tuska, Summer Breeze, Wacken and many more have been turned into funerary ceremonies. Touring with bands like Amorphis and Moonsorrow has further garnered the band a respected reputation due to strong yet solemn live performances.

The lyrical and conceptual approach is ambitious in scope. People are drawn to it, even though the band sings in their native tongue, Faroese. With a highly engaging idea concerning lyrics and songwriting, the hour has arrived to close a conceptual trilogy which commenced with the 2010 EP Vilst er siðsta fet, continued with the internationally acclaimed 2013 full-length album Evst, and is now concluded with the new album, soon to be announced.

Hamferð line-up:
Jon Aldara – Vocals
John Egholm – Guitar
Theodor Kapnas – Guitar
Isak Petersen – Bass
Esmar Joensen – Keyboards
Remi Johannesen – Drums

Chilean Black/Death Metal Band OCCASVUS Releasing Debut Album on Unspeakable Axe In September

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, news, world news with tags , , , , on July 14, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Chilean Black/Death Metal Squad OCCASVS will release debut album Nocturnal Majestic Mysteria via Unspeakable Axe Records on September 29th.

A promo video for album track “Union” is available at this location or below. The song is an 8-minute odyssey through all of the band’s startling blend of ideas and influences. Tremolo-picked riffs intertwine around blast beats, and the vocals are growled, shrieked, and even sung in eerie, stentorian harmonies.

The Chilean underground scene has thrived for aeons with great bands playing every brand of extremity. OCCASVS is both unique within that scene and a fitting encapsulation of it, combining Black Metal with Death Metal, Heavy Metal and more.  They lay in wait for years as their long-in-the-works debut album was fine-tuned to their exacting standards. Now Nocturnal Majestic Mysteria is to be unleashed on the world.

Track List:

Andante Nocturno Op.7

Triumphal Defeat

Under Human Eyes

Psychic Burial

Ritual Death

Seer

Union

LOYAL UNTIL DEATH – “Stream Remain Defiant” By Brutal Florida Hardcore Outfit In Its Entirety; LP Out Now Through 1732 Records

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on July 8, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Stream / share / order LOYAL UNTIL DEATH’s Remain Defiant at THIS LOCATION or below:

Remain Defiant, the damaging new LP from South Florida metallic hardcore outfit LOYAL UNTIL DEATH, is now streaming in its entirety, as the album sees release through guitarist/vocalist Nakia Romero’s 1732 Records.

Decibel Magazine hails a band that brings, “a dose of negativity and reality with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer.” No Echo offers, “Pompano Beach, Florida might sound like an ideal place to go for a little rest and relaxation, but don’t tell that to the guys in LOYAL UNTIL DEATH. The metallic hardcore power trio specialize in the kind of aural violence that has more in common with the ugly sounds of Hatebreed and Sworn Enemy than it does with anything even remotely close to ‘beach music.'”

No Clean Singing posts, “Words that come to mind in listening to this barrage of hardcore ferocity are ‘bruising’, ‘battering’, and ‘mauling’. It’s shot through with punishing grooves and blood-red vocal fury, driven by huge low-end power in the rhythm section’s sound and head-whipping riffs that provide a surge of adrenaline.” Mass Movement praises, “LOYAL UNTIL DEATH don’t fuck around, they bring the beat-down and the stage diving, slam happy pit anthems, light up the dancefloor, hit like Mike Tyson on his best day, survey the devastation that they’ve left in their wake and then do it all over again ad infinitum. Like a heads down, see you at the head, two step fueled combination of Turmoil and Terror, LOYAL UNTIL DEATH are a band that you need in your life.”

Remain Defiant is out today on colored vinyl LP, CD, and digital platforms. Stream the album and find preorder bundles at Bandcamp HERE, BigCartel HERE, and iTunes HERE, and see the band’s lyric video for “What Never Dies” HERE or below:

LOYAL UNTIL DEATH once again slaps the world a huge dose of reality with the follow-up to their Born Of Violence full-length. With punishing guitar riffs, merciless lyrics, multiple vocal deliveries, and drums that march to machine gun fire, Remain Defiant is a war cry heard by the Gods, an album created as a big middle finger to the music scene, to society… to the world.

The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Iceman Studios in Royal Palm Beach with maestro Daniel Columbo (Old Habits, Ether, Incited, Cinderblock, Bishop) at the helm, who captured the sound the band was looking for; gut-wrenching guitar tones, earth shattering drums. It was the missing link to take the band’s sound to the next level. Completing the album is artwork by Eliran Kantor. Fans of Terror, Crucified, Hatebreed and other top-tier metallic hardcore acts will not hesitate to dive headfirst into the brutal grooves and antagonistic delivery.

The band’s seventh full-length offering and second recorded reel-to-reel, Vengeful Ascension was captured at Earth Analog in Tolono, Illinois with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome). A sonic manifestation of war, chaos, desolation, and emotional conflict, seamlessly bridging twenty years of the band’s signature brand of audio venom, Vengeful Ascension finds its members at their most accomplished both individually and as a cohesive unit.

Guitarist Sammy Duet’s dense, sub nuclear riff work and possessed solo blitzes are at their most devastating spiraling flawlessly and instinctually around drummer Zack Simmons‘ and bassist James Harvey’s hammering rhythms with frontman Ben Falgoust’s distinctly commanding roar, his acidic prose more enunciated than ever before, complimenting the apocalyptic proceedings.
