Progressive Death Metal Vets ZEALOTRY To Release ‘At The Nexus Of All Stillborn Worlds’ On Unspeakable Axe in December

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on September 29, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Two years after their last full-length, ZEALOTRY are back with their newest offering (and first with Unspeakable Axe Records), titled At The Nexus Of All Stillborn Worlds. The album will be released on December 7th.

A promo video for the album’s title track is available at youtu.be/MB0AVpKcA4I or below:

This is progressive death metal at its most uncompromising; dense with intricate riffs, elaborate bass lines, mind-melting lead guitar work and more. Clean choral vocals add a Timeghoul-ish aspect to certain songs; in other places, bewildering effects occasionally will warp a track into an aural acid trip. Elaborate structures occasionally peel back to reveal a Chasm-inspired melodic development.

Featuring a member of Chthe’ilist and influenced by a broad palette of death metal explorers including At the Gates, Obliveon, Brutality, and Atheist, At The Nexus Of All Stillborn Worlds is a dizzying new peak in ZEALOTRY’s 13-year history. Experience eight tracks and nearly 43 minutes of some of the most dense and rewarding music death metal has to offer, on CD, cassette and digital platforms from Unspeakable Axe Records. Look for pre-orders to be available next week.

Track List:

  1. At The Nexus of All Stillborn Worlds
  2. Accursed
  3. Lethe’s Shroud
  4. Primus Venatoris
  5. The Hole
  6. Universal Deceit
  7. The Sky Bleeds Nightmares
  8. Irredeemable

PIAH MATER SIGN WITH CODE666

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on August 29, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Brazilian progressive death metal band PIAH MATER are pleased to announce that they have signed with legendary Italian label code666 to release their forthcoming album The Wandering Daughter on October 5th 2018.

Vocalist Luiz Felipe Netto commented: “Code666 has been the cradle of many great bands that went on to later become household names in their niche. We are very honored by this opportunity and looking forward to seize it in the best possible way.”

He further explains that “Although it’s not a concept album per se, “The Wandering Daughter” does have a common theme throughout its entirety, a thread that connects its 6 songs into a sensorial unity. On a musical level, we aimed for that feeling of being taken on a journey, with its many pitfalls and climaxes along the record’s 56 minutes of play. Lyric-wise, that thread would be the relationship between man/ woman and nature. I understand that, at a first glance, this is not exactly groundbreaking territory for a band to explore in their songs, plenty of artists have delved into this topic before. But I do believe that, when crafting lyrics, perspective is everything and that the way this subject is presented stems from a very genuine and intimate place. I hope that comes across to the listeners as well.”

More information will be available soon.

GRUESOME – “Twisted Prayers” Full-Length Out Now And Streaming Via Relapse Records

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on June 1, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Gruesome - Twisted Prayers - promo album cover - 2018 - #233MO33ILMG

“While cribbing the raw sound and style of Death circa Leprosy and Scream Bloody Gore seems like a manageable task given the music’s proud primitivism, achieving Schuldiner’s progression as he distanced himself from mere mortals is a formidable leap. But Exhumed mainman Matt Harvey and collaborators including Gus Rios of Malevolent Creation somehow create an album that works as both tribute and original art…” — Decibel

Twisted Prayers, the newest full-length from death metal defenders of the old GRUESOME, is out NOW via Relapse Records.

Stream it in full below or at THIS LOCATION. 

If you missed it, view the band’s NSFW video for “Fatal Illusions” as well as the Jeffrey Sisson-directed video for “Inhumane” and lyric video for “A Waste Of Life” HERE.

GRUESOME recently partnered with Decibel Magazine to share their cover of “Legion Of Doom” by Chuck Schuldiner’s pre-Death project Mantas. The recording was included the June 2018 issue as a special pictured flexi disc. Stream the exclusive track at THIS LOCATION.

GRUESOME – featuring current and former members of Exhumed, Possessed, Malevolent Creation, and more – returns with its second full-length, Twisted Prayers. The eight-track offering follows Death’s paradigm shift during the Spiritual Healing era, incorporating more cerebral, melodic instrumentation with elements of thrash and thought-provoking, socially conscious lyrics. Recorded at New Constellation Studios in Orlando, Florida with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Exhumed, 1349, Goatwhore, Wolvhammer) who has been instrumental in crafting the band’s sonic homage, Twisted Prayers features GRUESOME doing what they do best across over forty minutes of unholy hymns with lurid melodies and vulgar atmospheres. The band has once again teamed up with the legendary artist Ed Repka (Death, Atheist, Massacre) for the album’s blasphemous cover art in addition to legendary Death guitarist James Murphy (Death, Obituary, Testament) for a pair of special guest guitar solos. Bow your heads and worship at the altar of GRUESOME!

GRUESOME‘s Twisted Prayers is available on CD, LP, deluxe LP, cassette, and digital formats via Relapse Records. Physical packages are available via Relapse.com HERE and digital downloads/streaming services at THIS LOCATION. The deluxe LP edition of the album includes an accompanying flexi disc featuring companion artwork and a cover of Possessed’s “The Exorcist.”

GRUESOME has announced two exclusive shows in Florida with label mates Exhumed before kicking off a European headlining tour this summer. Beginning July 19th, the trek will travel through two dozen cities and includes appearances at Obscene Extreme 2018, Wacken Open Air, Partysan Open Air and more. See all confirmed dates below.

“…an extreme reminder of what Death accomplished through seven records and a reason to revisit the work of one of the genre’s architects and symbolic teacher.” – Covering The Scene

“…every track on Twisted Prayers features some truly warped and shreddy solos. Harvey and Daniel Gonzalez set the fretboards ablaze on ‘Lethal Legacy,’ ‘A Waste Of Life’ and on the album-closing title track which can only be described as a tapping buffet.” – Ghost Cult

“…the most technical GRUESOME album to date.” – Metal Trenches

California Death Metal Horde DRAGHKAR To Release ‘The Endless Howling Abyss’ in July

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on May 31, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

California Death Metal Horde DRAGHKAR will release new EP The Endless Howling Abyss on July 27. The EP will be released digitally, as well as on CD format by Craneo Negro Records (500 copies) and on cassette through Nameless Grave Records (75 copies).

New song “Swallowed by the Dark” is now streaming. Listen and pre-order below:

draghkar.bandcamp.com/album/the-endless-howling-abyss

On The Endless Howling Abyss, DRAGHKAR have turned up the intensity and unleashed violence in its most lethal form. The forthcoming EP is a harrowing journey through 20 minutes of pure Hell, inspired still by the classic fires of ABHORRENCE and AMORPHIS, but now flavored by an increasing influence from the oldest days of the Greek Black and Death Metal scenes, as well as MOLESTED, MERCYFUL FATE, and more.

Track Listing:

1. Traversing the Abyss
2. Swallowed by the Dark
3. Eternal Disintegration (Of The Body And Of The Mind)
4. Fading into Emptiness

DRAGHKAR:

BW – Guitar, Vocals
Daniel Kelley – Bass
ES – Drums

BAND BIO:

Draghkar was formed in 2016 by BW as an outlet for his love of death metal. Originally a tribute to the elder days of the Finnish death metal scene, they put out their first demo on cassette with Witchhammer Productions from Thailand in 2017. It was re-released by Blood Harvest Records later that year. After a series of lineup changes, Draghkar released a split with Desekryptor in the earlier half of 2018 and have come back now with their most ambitious and original output to date, a four track EP entitled The Endless Howling Abyss.
