EXMORTUS – Unveils ‘Legions Of The Undead’ Video; New Horror-Themed EP Out Now

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, music videos, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , , on October 28, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

With All Hallows’ Eve and the Day of the Dead fast approaching, the L.A.-based thrash/death/shred quartet EXMORTUS has unveiled a visualizer for the title track for their just-released horror-themed EP Legions of the Undead. Check out the clip – which was designed by Wayne Joyner (Dream Theater, Devin Townsend). Watch it  HERE or below:

Says guitarist Jadran “Conan” Gonzalez, “Just in time for Halloween, enjoy this video of the new EP title track, ‘Legions of the Undead,’ inspired by the darker themes in Tolkien & Lovecraft lore. We are extremely excited to perform the new songs on Death Angel’s North American Humanicide Tour this November and December. See you on the road, Legions!”

As Gonzalez acknowledged, the song “Legions of the Dead” nods to the Dead Men of Dunharrow in “Lord Of The Rings.” It is joined on the new EP by one other new original track – the “Evil Dead”-inspired “Swallow Your Soul” – as well as three instrumental covers: renditions of Danny Elfman’s “Beetlejuice” theme and Bernard Hermann’s theme from Alfred Hitchcock’s horror classic “Psycho,” as well as a neoclassical shred take on 19th Century Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky’s haunting “Night On Bald Mountain.”

Recorded earlier this year with longtime producer Zack Ohren (Machine Head, Immolation) at Oakland’s Sharkbite Studios, “Legions Of The Undead” – the cover art for which was designed by Toha “AHOT” Mashudi – is now available via the band’s own Exmortus Music in cooperation with M-Theory Audio. Physical copies can be ordered on CD and limited-edition green slime-colored vinyl HERE.

“Legions Of The Undead” marks the first EXMORTUS release featuring the lineup – founding guitarist/vocalist Gonzalez, guitarist Chase Becker (also of Warbringer), bassist Cody Nunez and drummer Adrian Aguilar – that has logged numerous miles on the road together over the past two years with the likes of Obituary, Venom Inc., Sabaton, Kreator, Havok, Allegaeon, Hatchet, Homewrecker and The Absence. The group – whose most recent performance was alongside Exodus at the legendary thrash group’s sold-out “Bonded By Con” concert during San Diego’s recent Comic-Con – will support another iconic Bay Area act this fall, when they team up with Death Angel for a five-week tour across the U.S. and Canada. See below for the complete itinerary.

Founded by Gonzalez when he was just 12 years old, EXMORTUS released their debut album, “In Hatred’s Flame,” via Heavy Artillery in 2008. After gaining additional acclaim with their 2011 sophomore effort “Beyond The Fall Of Time,” the group signed a three-album deal with Prosthetic Records in 2013. In support of that acclaimed trilogy of releases (2014’s “Slave To The Sword,” 2016’s “Ride Forth” and 2018’s “The Sound Of Steel”), the band toured alongside some of metal’s biggest names, including Amon Amarth, Children of Bodom, Abbath, Dark Tranquillity and Marty Friedman, earning extensive praise along the way for their live power, prowess and proficiency.

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

14/10 – The Green Door Store, Brighton

15/10 – Underground, Plymouth

16/10 – Fuel Rock Club, Cardiff

17/10 – The Black Heart, London

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.

To preview the record, and to view the band’s recently-released video for “Razorblade Meltdown” visit metalblade.com/dragonforce.

DragonForce – Razorblade Meltdown (New Official Video)

The Grammy-nominated extreme power metal group is based in London, England. Their platinum-selling record, Through The Fire And Flames, brought them international acclaim and was featured as the most-challenging song on Guitar Hero III. Their energetic and humorous live performances have won them fans on every continent.

The group is known for their long, complex, and fast guitar solos performed by Herman Li and Sam Totman, who founded the band after meeting through a classified ad in 1999. Since then, the band has released seven studio albums, including Valley Of The Damned (2003), Sonic Firestorm (2004), Inhuman Rampage (2006), Ultra Beatdown (2008), The Power Within (2012), Maximum Overload (2014), and Reaching Into Infinity (2017). 2019 brings the next chapter in DRAGONFORCE history: Extreme Power Metal!

Regarding Extreme Power Metal, Li says, “This album again combines the best of DRAGONFORCE in an even bigger, more epic way than we have ever done before. We are so excited for fans to hear it!” The keyboards of the new album were performed by Coen Janssen of symphonic metal titan Epica, adding a new dimension to the album. Notes Totman, “We worked really closely with Coen on this new album. We are so happy with what he has brought into this new album. Every fan will be so happy to hear his majestic playing!”

Drawing from a wide range of influences, the band’s sound combines the sing-a-long choruses of classic ’80s rock with triumphant, uplifting melodies and fantasy-themed power-metal-inspired lyrics. As a nod to their passion for all things video-game related, the band frequently incorporates retro game sounds and melodies into their recordings and live shows.

Following the release of Extreme Power Metal, DRAGONFORCE will begin their world tour in support of it. Li promises, “In this age, where our music is easily accessible, I am not going to waste time trying to describe the sound of our new album. I’ll let the music do the talking! However, what I can tell you is, our upcoming tour will be our biggest in a decade. We have a massive epic production and a really special surprise for VIPs. We can’t wait to see everyone out on the road!”

Hardcore/ Crossover Thrash Metal Act R.A.I.D Release Second Single Off Upcoming Album “Outrage”

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, music videos, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , , on May 5, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Hyderabad based Hardcore/ Crossover Thrash Metal act R.A.I.D – The second single called- ‘Outrage’ is part of the next full length that the band is planning to unveil soon. The title and release date will be announced soon via Rottweiler Records.

Front man Rueben says: “The song ‘Outrage’ is about breaking free from the norms and pressures created by society/the people around us. A lot of poisonous trends have been created that affect a good way of life. To overcome these hurdles, the only way out is to have an unbreakable state of mind. We are the captain of our fate, the master of our soul, the boss of our dreams and the king of our goals. It is up to us to negate the poison around us and create our own legacy.” The song is rebellious and speaks in the tone of a fallen soul who goes out to seek what he is meant to do. This second single is also set to be unleashed via the Digital 45 (where the band releases an additional track) along with the single.

ENFORCED – WAR Records To Release “At The Walls” LP From Richmond Crossover Outfit; Tour Dates With Iron Reagan, Sacred Reich And Leeway Closing In

Posted in hardcore metal, Metal, Music, music news, music videos, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on May 2, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

WAR Records welcomes Richmond, Virginia-based crossover outfit ENFORCED to the label roster and is currently preparing the band’s At The Walls LP for summer release. With the album’s final details being sorted for pressing, the band is about to embark on a run of tour dates through the Northeastern US and into Canada supporting a vicious tour package with Sacred Reich, Iron Reagan, and Leeway.

Formed in 2016, ENFORCED picks up where Sepultura and Cro-Mags left off and infuses their own volatile, hardcore fury into the hardcore/thrash crossover sound of the late ’80s. Fronted by a voice that could only belong to that of a madman and unloading nonstop blazing riffs and pummeling breakdowns in every track, the band demolishes everything in their path, leaving a trail of smoldering wreckage and pure decimation anywhere they perform.

ENFORCED‘s impending At The Walls LP features a remixed and remastered version of the 2017 demo and their “Retaliation” promo, and introduces two brand new songs to the mix. All tracks were recorded by Bob Quirk and mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Cavalera Conspiracy, Candy). In addition, Dwid Hellion (Integrity, Psywarfare) provides guest vocals to the track “Skinned Alive” who also created the apocalyptic album artwork for the LP.

Expect nothing but total war on stage from ENFORCED as they explode into 2019; a must-hear for fans of classic crossover/thrash from Nuclear Assault, Demolition Hammer, and Devastation, as well as modern shredders Skeletal Remains, Foreseen, and War Hungry. Watch for the final details on ENFORCED‘s At The Walls LP to be issued in the days ahead for an early summer release through WAR Records.

In the meantime, check out a vicious ENFORCED live set from United Blood 2019 earlier this month RIGHT HERE or below:

ENFORCED is booking tour dates into the summer months surrounding the release of the LP. Beginning next week, they will be out on the road supporting Sacred Reich, Iron Reagan, and Leeway from May 9th through May 17th, with shows in Asbury Park, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Boston, Albany, Cleveland, Chicago, Detroit, and Toronto. ENFORCED tours home with shows in Philadelphia and Virginia Beach, followed by a hometown show supporting Accused AD on May 25th. Additional tour dates are to be expected through the coming months.

Featured in publications such as Metal Hammer and Billboard, Metalocalypstick Fest not only celebrates women in metal but also gives back to the community. Formed in 2016 as a non-profit organization, they are dedicated to raising funds and donating 100% of proceeds to local charities Girls Rock Camp, Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter, and Earth Protectors plus they sponsor an independent band picked by Metalocalypstick Fest judges.

The festival was founded by Kaija Kinney of Vancouver’s Anarcheon after researching a lack of female based metal festivals to apply her band to, Kinney took matters into in her own and decided to produce the event.

“This festival means the celebration of both sexes coming together and creating something amazing. People like to say women in metal aren’t a big deal anymore and that we are all the same. I feel that is untrue, this is still a male dominated world and woman are still looked as lesser. I want to showcase all these bad ass ladies and celebrate the differences of men and woman rather than pretend we are all equal. Truth is we are different why can’t we celebrate that?” says Kinney.

Italian Trad-Metal Trailblazers TIR Releasing ‘Metal Shock’ May 10th On Gates Of Hell Records

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, music videos, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , , , on April 5, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

One of the very first Italian heavy metal bands returns with its first full-length album in eight years, Metal Shock! Trailblazing and traditional metal ensemble TIR will release Metal Shock May 10th on Gates of Hell Records. The album’s first single is streaming below.

Stream “La Luna nel Cerchio” below:

youtu.be/DaUphjvpLoQ

Metal Shock is the band’s second full-length in a career that dates back to 1980. Metal Shock is an album that challenges the old-school metal status quo by having lyrics sung entirely in Italian.

Recorded at Trick Studio in Rome in late 2018/early 2019, Metal Shock is sung entirely in Italian, giving TIR yet another angle in a career that has been marked by going against the grain. Several of the songs found on Metal Shock date all the way back to the band’s halcyon ’80s period and were subsequently re-written and tinkered with until the members of TIR were satisfied. This type of meticulous detail shines throughout the album, where TIR’s penchant for knifing twin guitar melodies, hefty gallops and the multi-faceted vocal capabilities of Cialone are pure touchstones of metal’s undisputed glory era.

Traditional metal fans will instantly heed the call of TIR’s melody-dominated style and taut songwriting approach. Metal Shock marks a new beginning for a band, who, even as they are approaching the four-decade mark, are playing some of their most inspired material to date. TIR shows with Metal Shock that there is nothing stronger than conviction.

Track Listing:

  1. Città In Fiamme
  2. La Sfida
  3. Banche Armate
  4. La Luna Nel Cerchio
  5. Crazy Mama
  6. Dentro Il Vuoto
  7. Lasciateci Fare
  8. Metal Shock
  9. Beat 150
  10. Mitra
  11. Memoria (Faber)

TIR BIO:

A year away from their 40th anniversary, Italian traditional metal outfit TIR remains one of the best-kept secrets in the underground. Formed in 1980 by the guitar tandem of Sergio Bonelli and Danilo Antonini, TIR opted for the path of most resistance: Instead of releasing studio albums and seeking major label assistance, they preferred to perform live shows. Their performances soon became can’t-miss events in Rome. Aided by fire, pyrotechnics and even live snakes, TIR’s reputation spread like wildfire (no pun intended) in their home city, catapulting their lone release of the decade, 1984’s self-titled demo, into the frenzied world of underground tape trading. However, while the metal scene waited for TIR to record a proper full-length album, the band stuck to their guns and simply kept playing live.

TIR would split in 1986, only to reform two years later. It wasn’t until 2011 that the band saw fit to release an album of original material, the appropriately titled Heavy Metal. Eight years later, TIR (who, in addition to Bonelli and Antonini, comprise long-time bassist Dino Gubinelli, vocalist Giuseppe Cialone and drummer Piero Arioni) return with Metal Shock, their first release for Gates of Hell Records.

ARTWORK FOR THE BLIND (Death/Thrash Metal) Release New Video

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, music videos, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on March 9, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Kentucky metallers Artwork for the Blind released a video for their track “Shoot The Moon (El Roacho)” off sophomore album II earlier this week.  The jarring political statement showcases the band’s psychedelic approach to the groove and death subgenres.

Guitarist Sol. E. Williams says of this new offering, “The new vid… Watch the details.”

Witness those details here:

About Artwork For the Blind:

In 2012, Artwork for the Blind began with an original line up of Chris Brackett (Guitarist), Sean Coy Curry (Vocalist), Mike Hoehn (Bassist), and Larry Myers (Drummer). The quartet soon began writing their first set of songs and gigging around the Louisville area. In 2014, the group released their self-produced, self-titled album to much praise in the Louisville local metal scene. Then in 2015, the group started writing and recording their second self-produced album, II.

Soon after II was released, guitarist Chris Brackett decided to bow out of the group citing health issues. The group had been recording at Louisville guitarist Sol. E. Williams house, so it was only natural that Sol. be asked to take Brackett’s place on guitar.  Almost immediately, the band began to extend its range throughout the Midwest.

Soon after joining, Sol. began writing material for a new EP.  In the summer of 2017, Artwork began recording for another self produced release. In August of 2018, the group made their third release, the 5-song EP titled A Dying Breed and the Living Proof to much acclaim in their growing following.

Currently the group is writing and recording material for a fourth release with singles expecting to be cut as the album progresses. Furthermore they expect to be scheduling shows throughout the Midwest this summer and releasing videos in support of the last summer EP.

Self-admitted Heavy Metal and Comics fanatics and fronted by U.S. born singer Anthony Stephen, FRENZY has successfully created a fresh approach to the traditional style accompanied by great lyrics focused on comic books and graphic novels such as Daredevil, From Hell, The Killing Joke, Silver Surfer, X-Men, and others.

SPIRITS OF FIRE – Release First Single & Video “Light Speed Marching” – Debut Album Out February 22nd!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, music videos, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on November 17, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

In Summer 2017, TESTAMENT’s Steve Di Giorgio teamed up with Tim “Ripper” Owens, Chris Caffery and Mark Zonder, for a new musical project, SPIRITS OF FIRE! This outstanding supergroup has announced the release date  for their self-titled debut album, to be February 22, 2019, via Frontiers Music Srl, unleashing also the first single & video, “Light Speed Marching” from the album.

Watch “Light Speed Marching” video, here:

https://youtu.be/Cg1gzFPAhcM

Pre-order the album on CD/LP/Digital HERE: http://radi.al/SpiritsofFire

North American fans can get LIMITED EDITION, exclusive red color vinyl & collector’s box (feat. CD + T-Shirt – Size L ONLY) HERE: https://frontiersrecords.pmstores.co/ These are limited to 100 each and this is the only retailer in North America carrying these items.

European fan can get the same items HERE: https://bit.ly/2RXvA0Q

Frontiers Music Srl is known for building new bands/projects featuring musicians of outstanding quality and who come from unique backgrounds. After an intense brainstorming session, a dream team of renowned metal musicians including Tim “Ripper” Owens (ex Judas Priest, Iced Earth), Chris Caffery (Savatage, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Steve DiGiorgio (Testament, Death (Official), etc.) and Mark Zonder (ex Fates Warning, Warlord) was born and put together under the direction of renowned LA-based producer Roy Z. (Bruce Dickinson, Halford, Tribe Of Gypsies).

Called SPIRITS OF FIRE (after the title of one of their songs), the band has completed work on their debut album which is set for release on February 22nd via Frontiers Music Srl. The music can best be described as “classic Priest meets Savatage”.

Guitarist Chris Caffery on his influences for the record and working with Roy Z:

“My influences for writing on this record were the bands that we were and are still in! I wanted to write songs that [Judas] Priest, Savatage, Testament, and Fates Warning fans would like. But, I wanted them to have a personality of their own as well. To give it a vibe that was SPIRITS OF FIRE! I grew up listening to Judas Priest and spent 30 plus years working with Jon Oliva and Paul O’Neill with Savatage and TSO. Many years playing Criss’ music. These influences for me came naturally! Especially because I’m a fan of all of our bands!

This was the first time that I ever worked with Roy and it was so much fun. I have been a huge fan of his work for a long time. He’s written music, played on, and produced some of my favorite metal albums ever. He had a difficult job bringing this all together and I can’t think of anyone that would have been a better producer and co-worker for this album!”

“I always just sing to the song, whatever I feel it should be. It’s like a character thing! I like layers! This music is really perfect for me and in my natural wheel house. I like to sing all over the place and change it up and this all happens on this album. This is just the start of an amazing band, I mean sky is the limit and I actually can’t wait to record the next album, because this one is so great and perfect,” says vocalist Tim “Ripper” Owens.

Drummer Mark Zonder adds about his playing and writing process, “I am the kind of player that plays what I think fits best with the music. With SPIRITS OF FIRE, the music was more aggressive and hard hitting which I really liked. Again, I tried to be very mindful of the song and the vocals, but tried to add parts that were interesting and creative for the listener.”

Track Listing:
1. Light Speed Marching
2. Temple of the Soul
3. All Comes Together
4. Spirits of Fire
5. It’s Everywhere
6. A Game
7. Dispensable
8. Meet Your End
9. Never to Return
10. The Path
11. Alone in the Darkness

JUNGLE ROT PREMIERE NEW VIDEO “THE UNSTOPPABLE”

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, music videos, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on March 27, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Jungle Rot - The Unstoppable - promo artwork - 2018 - #33MO33ILMG23

2009 Release Surfaces on Vinyl, CD and Digital Formats

First Tour Dates of 2018 Revealed

“Death Metal needs blood, fire and carnage,” declares JUNGLE ROT throat and rhythm guitarist Dave Matrise. Today, JUNGLE ROT has released a brand new video for ‘The Unstoppable,’ from their long out-of-print album What Horrors Await. The fourteen track underground classic will debut on vinyl format for the first time worldwide on Record Store Day, April 21, 2018.

“The Unstoppable” Playing Now.

“Filming the point-of-view aspect from a tank made this video so much better,” states Matrise. “Instead of performing with instruments, we came up with the idea of each JUNGLE ROT soldier inside their own tank – mercilessly fighting and communicating to each other back and forth like killing machines. The lyrics are actually about a rolling death machine and she’s called ‘The Unstoppable,’ the bloodiest, most bad-ass beast you’ve ever seen! Doing the camo face paint is something that I wanted to do for a while and it really captured the whole feel we were going for. Prepare for a total alpha-strike, war-gore cloud of fear with a stop-at-nothing attitude in the thick of battle!”

On the re-issued album Matrise points out, “When we first released What Horrors Await in 2009, it was a one-time deal with a limited run. CD’s never made it to the US and were sold only in Europe where the previous label was based. What Horrors Await has always been JUNGLE ROT’s most sought-after album with fans often paying ridiculous amounts of money for it on eBay. It’s really been a rare and collectible album. We’re so glad it’s now out on our home label Victory Records, it will give everybody a chance to finally hear this monstrous release.”

JUNGLE ROT storm into Canada next week for their first shows of 2018, in anticipation of their tenth studio album (set for a spring release). “We feel lucky to be able to express ourselves through so many albums and I’m hoping our fans will never tire of meat and potatoes metal!” admits guitarist Geoff Bub, as bassist James Genenz adds, “We’ve got quite a fire under our collective asses and we’re psyched to get this album out! This is going to be a nasty record!”

Finnish Industrial Metal Unit KING SATAN – Release “Psygnosis” Music Video

Posted in Hard Rock, Metal, Music, music videos, news, rock music with tags , , , , , on June 12, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

King Satan - promo pic - 2016 - #MO772333ILMFSO9

Finnish Industrial Metal/EBM Group KING SATAN have released the official video for new single “Psygnosis.” The video was directed, written and produced by the band’s mastermind/vocalist Aleister Von Satan himself. Check it out at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pq_HgY5puE or below:

The single will be included on the band’s upcoming debut album, which will be released later in 2016 on Saturnal Records.

KING SATAN is an industrial metal / EBM band from Tampere, Finland, founded in 2015 by Aleister Von Satan (a.k.a. fra. Zetekh, also mastermind of occult Black Metal band Saturnian Mist). KING SATAN combines influences from a wide range of Extreme Metal, Electro-Industrial and even Hard Rock. Musically, the band is about complete defiance – not only towards the boundaries and conventions of Metal and Electro Music but also the status quo of spiritual life and mental status of modern world. Nothing is sacred and no stone shall be left unturned.

https://itunes.apple.com/fi/album/02-psygnosis/id1121561300?i=1121561334&l=fi

BAND BIO:

KING SATAN‘s first promo titled We are King Satan and we Fuck the World (2015) was recorded in autumn 2015 and released in December 2015 together with a music video single from the demo titled Enter Black Fire (2015). The video was directed by ALEISTER VON SATAN himself. The CD edition of the demo sold out fast and KING SATAN were going through a period of finding an established line-up for the sake of performing live, which meant that  a lot of people came and went before the line-up was settled. DJ SHEMHAMFORASH (a.k.a. fra. Ptahaz, also known from Saturnian Mist) was already in the band during the time of the first demo and handled guitars, synths and DJ responsibilities live, while B.B. KILL found himself as a guitarist and KATE BOSS as a bassist and a dancer.

Due to the success of the demo KING SATAN started working almost immediately on the debut full-length album in March 2016 and the first live shows were confirmed quickly. The first live appearance will take place August 2016 at the SAARIHELVETTI FESTIVAL, Tampere, Finland, where the band will share the stage with such names as Turmion Kätilöt and Shining, while the second show will take a place at the extravagant GOTHIC FEST in SOFIA at Sofia, Bulgaria on October 29, 2016.
