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

SATYRICON – Unveil First Details About Brand New Album!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on July 13, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

As reported by Napalm Records:

Nearly three years in the making, SATYRICON have announced that ‘Deep calleth upon Deep’, their highly anticipated ninth studio album, is set for release on 22nd September via Napalm Records.

Recorded in Oslo, Norway and Vancouver, Canada, during early 2017 and mixed together with revered studio guru Mike Fraser (who previously worked on SATYRICON’s 2006 album, ‘Now, Diabolical’), ‘Deep calleth upon Deep’ is not just a new collection of songs from one of extreme music’s most enduring and reliable bands: this is a wholesale reinvention and a brand new era in SATYRICON history.

Frontman and visionary, Satyr informs us “Approaching this release, what I always kept in mind is that either this is the beginning of something new or it’s gonna be my last record. If this is going to be the last, then it needs to be something special. If there are more records, then I’d better make sure that this is so different from the last one that it feels like a new beginning. I think it’s really, really dark, very spiritual and filled with confidence and energy.”

‘Deep calleth upon Deep’ is a profound statement about the essence of SATYRICON’s music and the eternal value of art itself. Satyr continues, “The way that I see it is that for any art, be it SATYRICON or any other form of art with substance, in order for you to be able to inhale and completely understand it, it will take a little bit of you as well. If you get it all after a couple of listens, you know that it probably won’t stay with you. So the title is saying, ‘From the depth of the people making this record to the depth of the listener…’ If you want to take part in this journey, you should be prepared to dig deep down in the darkest corner of your soul with us.”

SATYRICON is also proud to share the album’s front cover – an obscure drawing from 1898 by perhaps the greatest Norwegian artist of all time, Edvard Munch.

‘Deep calleth upon Deep’ will be released in digital format, a CD digipak and gatefold vinyl options. Pre-orders will go live in August.

Boris Records Announce Vinyl Reissue Of HELLGOAT Debut

Posted in Black Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on July 9, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Boris Records is set to release the long overdue vinyl edition of the debut full-length album from U.S. Black Metal nihilists Hellgoat. Seventeen years after its initial release, Blasphemy from Serpent Tongues has been remastered and pressed for an August 8th release.

The vinyl re-issue comes ahead of the four-date “Satanists in Flames” tour with Nyogthaeblisz. Cities and dates are as follows:

August 17 – Providence, Rhode Island

August 18 – Gaithersburg, Maryland

August 19 – Brooklyn, New York

August 20 – Wilmington, Delaware

___________________________

Formed in 2004 with a relentless commitment to never compromise, Hellgoat unleashed three demos before recording their debut album, Blasphemy from Serpent Tongues, released in 2005 on CD alone and in a limited run.

At a time when Black Metal bands were experimenting with symphonic or progressive elements, Hellgoat drew inspiration from the ancient masters and released eight tracks of hateful Black Metal.

Building on this base, Hellgoat subsequently released two albums and numerous EP’s. They have taken their gospel of hate on the road, having toured extensively in every region of the country, as well as internationally.

For the very first time, Blasphemy from Serpent Tongues is being released on vinyl, newly remastered from the original mix and specifically for vinyl by Mammoth Sound Mastering. This is a haunting, savage, visceral assault on the senses. Prepare yourself for Blasphemy from Serpent Tongues.

WAN – To Unleash “Wan Way To Hell” February 10th on Carnal Records

Norse old-school Black Metal miscreants WAN are set to release “Wan Way to Hell,” their third and most devastating album to date.

“Wan Way to Hell” is pure audio vitriol. In recording the album, this unholy pack of bastards has succeeded in their one mission – fucking destroy!

WAN has fired the first shot with the video for King of Evil. Hail the king at https://youtu.be/1nbTQ99fnw0

Carnal Records will unleash this demon on February 10.

“Wan Way to Hell” Track Listing:

1 – Known as Dead

2 – King of Evil

3 – Till Kamp

4 – Igeltjärn

5 – The Challenger

6 – Wrought

7 – As If

8 – Spitfire Metal

9 – Full Sving

10 – Piss on your Grave

11 – Svarthäll

12 – Inn i Ilden

13 – Wan way to Hell

wan-promo-band-pic-2017-mo33ilmfso993

WAN was formed in 2009 as a triad of aggression with the intent of bringing metal back to its roots – raw, filthy and in the gutter with a twist of punk. A year later, the band released its first full-length “Wolves of the North.” The album was reissued on limited-edition cassette in 2011.

Core members Aganaroth, Isengrim and Tsjud recruited drummer Dimman for the debut’s 2013 follow-up Enjoy the Filth. Dimman’s time in WAN was short-lived, opening the door for current skin-basher Draup.

“Wolves of the North” was re-recorded in 2015 and released together with “”Enjoy the Filth” as a limited gate-fold double LP. WAN that same year recorded five new tracks Necroholic, a split-CD with Curse and Styggelse and released a video for “Pentagram Rockers,” off the second album.

The band has since brought their primal, old-school Black Metal to several stages in preparation the oncoming slaughter of Wan Way to Hell.

About Malphas:

Founded in 2012 by Paul DeSanctis and Eric Dunleavy, accompanied by Dallas Lutz and Damian DiFrancesco, Malphas is a four-piece Black Metal band.

The sound of Malphas is generally derived from the Scandinavian Metal scene, coming together as a healthy blend of melodic death, black, and power Metal with additional touches of prog and jazz.

The band’s lyrics are written as a concept story revolving around Malphas, the 39th gothic spirit in demonology. Malphas serves as the grand president and general of hell; commanding forty legions of demons and appearing before conjurers in the form of a crow.
