ENSIFERUM will embark on their Path To Victory North American headlining tour, featuring support from Kalmah, Abigail Williams, and Aenimus, late this fall. The journey runs from November 14th in Richmond, Virginia through December 8th in Brooklyn, New York.

Comments ENSIFERUM bassist/vocalist Sami Hinkka: “It’s time to get back on the road for one last time before we head to studio to record the next ENSIFERUM album and we couldn’t be more thrilled about the upcoming North American tour! It’s gonna be fireworks of metal for the whole evening because we’ll share the stage with three awesome bands: Kalmah, Abigail Williams, and Aenimus!” See all confirmed dates below.

You can’t talk about the true greats of folk-inspired melodic death metal without reverent mention of ENSIFERUM, and with their latest album, Two Paths, they once more affirm their place in the pantheons of the genre. Further building upon the thrilling metallic hybrid honed across six full-lengths, Two Paths is the quintet’s most epic and far-reaching collection of songs to date as well as their most organic.

The album literally takes the concept of Two Paths to heart, with two different versions of standout tracks “Don’t You Say” and “God Is Dead”. “Even though ENSIFERUM has always had clean vocals and choirs, harsh vocals have been the main style, and those songs worked so well with both styles that we decided to include both versions,” explains Hinkka. With Mikko P. Mustonen again handling orchestral arrangements and Lassi Logren returning to play nyckelharpa and violin on a few songs, Hinkka is also more than happy that they brought “more bombastic orchestral and down to earth folk aspects” to the record, further fleshing out their vision. This also applies to the contribution of Gyula Havancsak, who provided the artwork for both Two Paths and its predecessor, One Man Army. “It was really nice to work with him again because he always wants to hear our ideas and then he adds his own magic and improvements to them, and the result is always astonishing.”

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on September 17, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Italian metallers NEBULAE are ready to reveal details of what will be the band’s second full-length studio album. Titled “Pulse”, the nine-track album is set for release on the 18th October via Time To Kill Records.

Groove is clearly evident in the band’s style which however includes references to several metal genres, old and new. The album with its varied and intensively composed songs will surely appeal to fans of Gojira, Tesseract, Deftones, Jinjer and Klone.

“The new album has a mission: to make peace understood through a specific mantra ‘Listen. Understand. React.’ The title ‘Pulse’ – Impulse is the basis of all that animates us, of everything that makes us resist to events. It is the primary push to improve and evolve. The sequence of tracks into the album examines the unfolding over time of human experiences that lead the human being to evolve and fight, marked by everything he has faced and is still preparing to face”.

The record’s first single, “Removal”, is now streaming HERE and below:

“Pulse” – Track List:

  1. Trapped
  2. Dawning
  3. Removal
  4. Bend Down
  5. Poors
  6. Bite
  7. Smother
  8. Control
  9. Dust

RED DEATH – Announce New Album ‘Sickness Divine’

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on September 12, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Washington DC Crossover Thrashers RED DEATH are proud to announce their upcoming third studio album and Century Media Records debut “Sickness Divine” for a worldwide release on November 29th, 2019.

RED DEATH checked in with the following comment about “Sickness Divine”: “ This is the record we all wanted to collectively make and we feel good about what we did. Whatever aspects we liked from our past material have been fine tuned and amplified. Any new ideas we wanted to bring to the table fit perfectly and now has opened the door for future material. We wanted to create something unique for our time. A crossover record but one that fully establishes RED DEATH as just RED DEATH and nothing more. A fine balance between what we’ve done and what we needed to do. We started recording with Arthur Rizk in Philadelphia, PA around late May and finished up early August. We are gearing up to tour Europe with the CRO-MAGS as well as preparing ourselves for 2020 and beyond. We are beyond excited and can not wait to share what we’ve created with everyone!”

Look out for the launch of the album’s first single as well as the album’s pre-order starts to happen on September 27th, 2019.

Once more produced by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Sacred Reich) and with cover art – to be seen above – by Timbul Cahoyno (The Black Dahlia Murder, Nocturnus A.D.), “Sickness Divine” is a sledgehammer-to-the-skull riff-ride across its 10 annihilating tracks. Here is the standard track-listing for the release:

Red Death – Sickness Divine:
1. Sickness Divine
2. Face The Pain
3. Sword Without A Sheath
4. The Anvil’s Ring
5. Sheep May Unsafely Graze
6. Path Of Discipline
7. (Refuse To Be) Bound By Chains
8. Dreadful Perception
9. Ravage
10. Exhalation Of Decay

REVOCATION continues to tour in support of their latest full-length, The Outer Ones, released last September via Metal Blade Records. Produced by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Queensrÿche, Whitechapel, etc.), The Outer Ones finds REVOCATION pushing both the death metal and progressive elements of their signature sound harder than ever. “I knew that I wanted to go in a darker direction, and this is our most death metal album to date,” states vocalist/guitarist Dave Davidson. “Sometimes when death metal bands go down the prog route, they lose some of that edge, but we wanted to keep the aggression at the forefront of what we do while still pushing our boundaries.”
