Swedish Death Metal Unit DECOMPOSED have announced the forthcoming release of Wither, the band’s third full-length album. Wither will be released October 3 on Mexico’s Chaos Records.  New songs “By Nothingness Crowned” and “Submerged” are streaming at the following link https://chaos-records.bandcamp.com/album/wither and below:

The album will be available on CD and vinyl formats.

BAND BIO:
Sweden’s DECOMPOSED grew into a band in 2010, shortly after being conceived as a pure one-man Death Metal project. A year later the Stench of Death demo was recorded, which led to the self-titled debut album the following year. Two years thereafter the follow-up, entitled Devouring was released, a much more mature creation focused on darkness, horror and madness.

After a few live performances and quite a few internal struggles, DECOMPOSED had to cease to exist as a live band. All members left, and only composer/founder Jesper Ekstål remained. The work on the third chapter Wither was well under way during this period, and it continued during obstacles of every kind.

BRAINSTORM “Memorial Roots Re-Rooted” – Releases On September 16th, via AFM Records!

Brainstorm - Memorial Roots - Re-Rooted - promo album cover pic - 2016 - #MOILMNSM993

Friends, you didn’t see this coming, but be assured: it sounds killer!

In the past few months, German power metallers BRAINSTORM have extensively “reworked” their 2009 album “Memorial Roots”. The band’s longtime engineer Achim Köhler was hired to do a complete “remix” of the album and for the first time ever now all tracks of the “Memorial Roots” sessions (besides the regular album songs there were different bonus tracks on the Digipak, Vinyl and Japanese pressing back then) are featured on this brand new release. “Memorial Roots (Re-Rooted)” comes as Digipak, out September 16th.

Pre-order here:

http://shop.afm-records.de/en/brainstorm-memorial-roots-re-rooted-en.html

The band states:

“Seven years after the original release of “Memorial Roots”, we are incredibly proud to finally heed the call of our fans and give one of our most important albums a total “makeover”. This album holds many memories, we love these songs and are confident that the “polishing” (completely new mix) makes this new edition of “Memorial Roots” a great experience for every BRAINSTORM fan.

Many “Memorial Roots” songs are part of our Live set list ever since. Over the years we received a lot of fan feedback regarding this release especially. Many of you told us that you like the songs but overall wish the album to sound more powerful and aggressive.

For all BRAINSTORM members, being close to our fans is an integral part of what the band is about since day one. And so we are more than happy to give you what you asked for: in collaboration with our longtime-engineer Achim Köhler and our label AFM Records we took on this exciting project – to make the album sound like it deserves! “Memorial Roots” was a very important time for us; not only because it was the first release for the current line-up. We’ve toured Mexico for the first time back then, as well as many festivals in Europe and the US.

We love what we do and we do what we love. That’s why we are so proud today to give you “Memorial Roots (Re-Rooted”).

This one’s for YOU… (and your neighbors)… SO PLAY IT LOUD!

Andy & Todde”

WHITECHAPEL recently completed an extensive run across the US on the annual Vans Warped Tour, touring in support of their sixth full-length, Mark Of The Blade. Hailed as, “an exciting milestone,” by Alternative Press, Mark Of The Blade was produced by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Cannibal Corpse) and sees WHITECHAPEL redefine who they are and what they are capable of with the resulting eleven tracks.

Kicking off with “The Void” – which has a Slayer-esque ferocity that is perfectly suited to the band’s three-guitar attack – the songs that follow all leave a distinct impression, and by the time the rich, dark melodies on “Decennium” bring the record to a close, it’s impossible to deny the emotional weight brought to bear. Guitarist Alex Wade explains, “At this point in our career and as we grow older, we are taking a more open-minded approach to creating our music, allowing what we think sounds good to evolve naturally, rather than to just write what is expected of us.”

To purchase Mark Of The Blade in various formats, visit: metalblade.com/whitechapel, where the video for the latest single, “Elitist Ones,” can also be viewed.
