My Recent Metal Music Purchases – END IT, AHNA And SICARIUS On Cassettes!

Posted in Metal with tags , , , , , , , on May 4, 2020 by Metal Odyssey

I purchased END IT One Way Track on cassette from M-Theory Audio. END IT is a Hardcore band, hailing from Baltimore Maryland. This is a 4 song EP and it was released earlier in 2020, via Flatspot Records. I dig Hardcore and you should too.

I purchased this AHNA Crimson Dawn cassette from the fantastic Caligari Records. If you’re looking for legit underground Metal and/or Extreme Music then Caligari Records is the epicenter of said genres! AHNA hails from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. AHNA is one damn good, ass-kicking band. I absolutely love this band.

M-Theory Audio delivered once again for me, with this brain splitting release from SICARIUS. If you love Black Metal, you must check out SICARIUS and later send me an annual thank you gift for the next 25 years or more. SICARIUS hail from The Inland Empire in California. Hell and yeah. I’ve been listening to this SICARIUS cassette in my car to and from work for several days now and it’s so inspirational!!

Thank you for visiting Metal Odyssey. With countless other things you could be doing, checking in on what Metal I’ve been buying really makes my Metal day. Stay safe and cherish life. – Stone

LONG LIVE METAL.

ENSIFERUM – Announces North American Headlining Tour With Kalmah, Abigail Williams And Aenimus

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.”

OMENFILTH: Philippines Based Black Metal Practitioners To Release Devourer Of The Seven Moons Full-Length Via Eternal Death This April; New Track Streaming + Preorders Available

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on March 6, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Philippines-based black metal practitioners OMENFILTH will release their third full length, Devourer Of The Seven Moons, on April 12th via Eternal Death.

Following the path of traditional black metal rather than the war metal influences often associated with their place of origin, Devourer Of The Seven Moons showcases the strengths of the band — eerie melodies (“The Embrace Of Solitude”), headbanging fury (“Summon The Beast Of Damnation,” “Seared By The Flames Of Bawo”), and violent upsurges (“Bakuana Ex Inferis”). Appealing more to fans of bands like Varathron or Darkthrone than Blasphemy or Von, Devourer Of The Seven Moons shows that Southeast Asian black metal is more than just sleazy goatworship and miniguns. Following the lyrical themes of the album, the artwork of Dave Fogg is based on the ancient Filipino mythological entity Bakunawa aka “The Devourer Of The Seven Moons.”

Stream / Share OMENFILTH’s “The Embrace Of Solitude” At THIS LOCATION

In advance of its official unveiling, OMENFILTH offers third track, “The Embrace Of Solitude,” for public consumption noting, “This song is a bit more melodic than anything we have previously written – it was put together by guitarist Von Necroticus when he was suffering from a depression and that comes through in the material. In a weird way, it reminds us of old Moonspell. This release is a definitive step in our career and we all think it is very strong album.”

Hear “The Embrace Of Solitude” below:

OMENFILTH‘s Devourer Of The Seven Moons will be released on CD, cassette, and digital formats. The ten-track offering includes three bonus tracks: a cover of Vulcano’s “Bloody Vengeance” and live recordings of “Equinox Of Evil” and “Fading Embers Of A Dying Era,” both from the band’s 2016 Opus Sanguinarium offering. For preorders, visit the Eternal Death Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION.

Devourer Of The Seven Moons – Track Listing:

  1. The Dictate Of Morbid Hegemony
  2. Summon The Beast Of Damnation
  3. The Embrace Of Solitude
  4. Devourer Of The Seven Moons
  5. Bakunaua Ex Inferis
  6. Seared By The Flames Of Bawo
  7. Negare Omnis Vitas

  9. Equinox Of Evil (Live)

Long running Minnesota Death/Doom band COLD COLOURS celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2019 with the February 22 release of fifth full-length album Northernmost. In recognition of the winter solstice, the album’s first blast of freezing wind comes in the form of a lyric video for new track “Terminal Winter.”

Vocalist/guitarist Brian J. Huebner had this to say about the band’s milestone:

“If 20 years has taught me anything, it’s that you have to believe in what you are doing. No matter how many roadblocks you hit over two decades. I am thrilled that we have ‘Northernmost’ to celebrate 20 years. Our best album so far? Without question, but more importantly, the best representation of who we are and should be. This album is a testament to the chemistry of the band in 2019.”

Long overdue, Northernmost finds COLD COLOURS in top form as they mine the depths of despair on 12 dynamic compositions guaranteed to satisfy devotees, as well as newcomers with a taste for the likes of AMORPHIS, SWALLOW THE SUN, and INSOMNIUM. Recorded and mixed by drummer Mike Andrie, and mastered to perfection by the legendary Dan Swanö at Sweden’s Unisound, Northernmost is nothing short of exquisite. Welcome to 2019; welcome to your Doom!

Track Listing:

  1. Northernmost I
  2. Nightmare
  3. A Life Forlorn
  4. Northernmost II
  5. From This Pain
  6. Spirit
  7. Northernmost III
  8. Terminal Winter
  9. Heathen
  10. Northernmost IV

VALDUR ‘Goat of Iniquity’ Streaming In Its Entirety – Album Out Now

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on October 20, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Eastern Sierra Black/Death Metal quartet VALDUR have released their punishing new album Goat of Iniquity. The album can be streamed and purchased at the links below.

bloodymountainrecords.bandcamp.com/album/goat-of-iniquity

valdur.bandcamp.com/album/goat-of-iniquity

VALDUR released this statement concerning the album:

“Valdur – Goat of Iniquity: another chain of songs containing deep extremities and primitive, suffocating atmospheres.  This is not a continuation of our previous release; this album moves backwards in a far more violent structure and sound; like a deathmetal cassette from 1988.  ‘Goat of Iniquity’ was recorded by us and us alone in the Bloody Mountain Bunker, with no triggers or other redundant studio shortcuts.  Vicious underground metal recorded in a live setting.  Not for trendy ears!  For Valdur, ‘Goat of Iniquity’ is another step deeper into the obscure halls of integrity.”

Track List:

  1. Divine Halls of Obscurity: Pt. I
  2. Goat of Iniquity / Devouring the Whore of Darkness
  3. Divine Halls of Obscurity: Pt. II
  4. Spiritual Exhaust (The Beyond)
  5. Inhale the Floodgates Open
  6. (Iniquitous)

Recorded at the Bloody Mountain bunker by Valdur, winter 2018.
Mixed by Matthew at Canyon Lodge studio.
cover art by: FarronLoathing
Mastered by Dan at Morbid Mastering

Goat of Iniquity will be available in digipack format as well as digital download, along with a new t-shirt design exclusive to this release.

DUNGEÖNHAMMER – “Infernal Moon” Out Now

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on October 14, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Infernal Moon, the full-length debut from old-school black/thrash metal duo DUNGEÖNHAMMER, is out now on Pulverised Records. The album is available on CD and digital formats at pulverised.bandcamp.com/album/infernal-moon.

DUNGEÖNHAMMER was formed by two maniacs – one from The Netherlands, the other France – who met while studying in Milan, Italy. What started as a friendship born from a shared passion of ’80s thrash and speed metal bands soon became the repulsive, two-headed beast known as DUNGEÖNHAMMER.

With Infernal Moon, DUNGEÖNHAMMER delivers pure filth, hypnotic, convulsion-inducing rhythms and an uncontrollable urge to bang your head. DUNGEÖNHAMMER rounds out this mayhem with vocals reminiscent of Tom G. Warrior’s Hammer ov Hell days and a nod to early ’90s Scandinavian death metal.

Cover art by Timo Ketola (Watain, Deathspell Omega, Antaeus, Krypts). The vinyl edition of Infernal Moon is coming soon from Me Saco Un Ojo Records.

DEATH VANISH – Connecticut Black Metal Unit To Release Cold Hammer Of Melancholy EP Via Eternal Death Next Month; New Track Streaming

Posted in Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on October 10, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Death Vanish - Melancholy EP - promo cover pic - 2018 - #33ILMNG333

Stream / Share DEATH VANISH’s “Solipsism And Antichrist” At THIS LOCATION

Connecticut black metal unit DEATH VANISH will unleash the traumatic, four-song Cold Hammer Of Melancholy EP via Eternal Death next month.

The solo project of One Master guitarist/vocalist Valder, DEATH VANISH is unabashedly influenced by the primitive sounds of Beherit and Profanatica. Playing select live shows with a full lineup, the song writing and all instruments on the recorded material is performed solely by Valder. DEATH VANISH‘s Cold Hammer Of Melancholy EP follows last year’s split with Misanthropos and will be released on cassette via Eternal Death on November 16th.

In advance of its release, opening psalm “Solipsism And Antichrist” is currently streaming at the DEATH VANISH Bandcamp page.

Offers Valder of the track, “The opening track ‘Solipsism And Antichrist’ is primarily inspired by the mid-tempo, pummeling moments on Beherit’s Drawing Down The Moon, with the bass guitar playing a more prominent role than the songs on our earlier release.”

For Hammer Of Melancholy preorders and to hear “Solipsism And Antichrist,” go to THIS LOCATION.

Hammer Of Melancholy – Track Listing:

  1. Solipsism And Antichrist
  2. Cold Hammer Of Melancholy
  3. Saturnian Realms Return
  4. Bloodless Fog (Of My Mind)

“Death Vanish” refers to the instinct to isolate oneself – to “die” and “vanish” from the external world into one’s own. On both a micro level (i.e. leaving a particular social or life situation) and macro level (i.e. leaving the bounds of the material world), the ideology of this project is to understand and harness the power of this inward looking instinct.

Russian Metal Trio SECOND TO SUN Release ‘The Black’ / Album Streaming

Second To Sun - The Black - album cover pic - 2018 - #33MO22ILMN3

Russian Metal trio SECOND TO SUN are proud to announce the release of The Black, a reissue of the Blackbound (2016) album, which was re-recorded to add vocals, among several other enhancements.  

The Black was released on May 16. It can be purchased at this location and is streaming in its entirety on SECOND TO SUN’s  Bandcamp page and YouTube Channel. Guitarist, bassist, and mastermind of the project, Vladimir Lehtinen released the following statement concerning The Black:

“Being the child of my thoughts, this album is the true face of the band – a well-fused combination of melodic black metal and groove metal the way we see it. As always, the album includes a separate unique story behind each song.”

“Our ambitions were through the roof on this release – we re-recorded and improved the lines for all the instruments, including the drums, bass, and even addinig some extra guitars, while Gleb’s [Sysoev] vocals sound as massive and crushing as always. Honesty and a natural aggressive sound are the qualities that distinguish independent artists from purely commercial ones these days, and we are happy that we can create music for the sake of art and not for just raking in some cash. We hope that our sound, punchy and somewhat scary, like a gust of cold northern wind in a seemingly empty home in the middle of the night will let you get fully immersed in the atmosphere that we embedded in the music – nine different stories related to darkness. Darkness in temptations, actions, soul, socium, thoughts – darkness in anything and everything you can possibly imagine. Don’t forget that each song has annotations, as we try to create real musical works of art that frighten with their beauty. And beauty is enchanting.”

The Black is available on SpotifyiTunes, Bandcamp, and other digital retailers.

Track List:

Ladoga Master

The Wal

Chokk Kapper

Vasilisa

Region 13

The Fool

Mrakobesie pt. 1- Divine

Band Bio:

Second To Sun is a metal band from Saint Petersburg, Russia, founded in 2012 by its guitarist Vladimir Lehtinen. Unlike many modern metal bands, who tend to gain fans and spread their music using a more visual element – live performances, music videos, band image, etc., Second To Sun try to concentrate on the musical aspect more and use visual elements (artwork, etc.) to give more depth and back story to the music. The band’s music contains a unique blend of metal genres: on the one hand, it has the many rhythmic elements of groove metal; on the other hand, it continues the legacy of such classic Scandinavian black metal bands as Emperor, Mayhem, and Dakthrone.

Such diverse musical roots of the band protrude from Vladimir Lehtinen’s songwriting, Gleb Sysoev’s soul-crushing vocals and Fedor Borovsky’s groovy drum lines. The band releases two versions of each album – the vocal and the instrumental one. Everything the band does is 100% DIY and 100% independent – they aren’t signed to any labels and don’t outsource anything – everything is composed and recorded by the band’s members. Each individual instrumental composition is accompanied by unique artwork and a hefty description of the story the composition tells, which provides a deeper insight into the music, as well as the band’s inspiration and creative process. Second To Sun released their new album The Black on May 16, 2018.

The road demons in GOATWHORE will return to the streets this May on a short run of live dates supporting Satyricon. The MetalSucks-sponsored trek — set to commence on May 13th in Los Angeles, California and run through May 30th in Austin, Texas — follows GOATWHORE‘s recent month-long European live takeover with Sepultura where frontman Ben Falgoust performed in a cast after sustaining a broken leg and fractured foot just days into the journey.

Comments guitarist Sammy Duet of the upcoming dates, “We are fucking excited to be hitting the road for our first US dates of 2018 with Satyricon. This is our first time touring with these guys, and I guarantee you won’t want to miss these shows.”

GOATWHORE w/ Satyricon:

5/14/2018 Metro Opera House – Oakland, CA

5/15/2018 Bossanova Ballroom – Portland, OR

GOATWHORE‘s latest full-length, Vengeful Ascension, was released last June via Metal Blade Records. Their seventh full-length offering and second recorded reel-to-reel was captured at Earth Analog in Tolono, Illinois with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome, Wolfhammer) and serves as the band’s highest charting album to date.

MetalSucks named Vengeful Ascension the band’s, “most vital album since 2006’s A Haunting Curse,” and one, guaranteed to frighten your grandmother directly into her grave.” Team Rock crowned Vengeful Ascension, “…the most mature recording in the GOATWHORE canon…,” while Loudwire added, “Vengeful Ascension has extremity black metal fans will dig, groove that will appeal to death metal aficionados, and potent guitar work thrash lovers can appreciate.”

Vengeful Ascension is out now on Metal Blade Records on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. To preview and purchase the record, visit metalblade.com/goatwhore.

“The album roars with the classic GOATWHORE sound of searing, shredding, and screams of rage. The material also tries some new things, tossing in a bit of blackened atmosphere, adding to the philosophical questions the music dives into.” — Alternative Press

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

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on February 3, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

wan-way-to-hell-promo-cover-pic-2017-mo83ilmfso993

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.
