RIVERS OF NIHIL – Announces North American Tour With Dying Fetus

Posted in Hard Rock, horror, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on February 7, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Dying Fetus - Rivers Of Nihil - tour flyer - April March 2018 - #333MO333ILMGDSO

RIVERS OF NIHIL will take on a North American tour this March and April with Dying Fetus, Thy Art Is Murder, Enterprise Earth, and Sanction. The journey will commence March 15th in Poughkeepsie, New York and make its way through nearly three-dozen cities, drawing to a close on April 22nd in Amityville, New York.

The band will be touring in support of their third full-length, Where Owls Know My Name, set for release on March 16th — just one day after tour kick off — via Metal Blade Records. Whereas 2013’s The Conscious Seed Of Light and 2015’s Monarchy were thematically centered around spring and summer, respectively, Where Owls Know My Name represents the fall. And although that season is usually associated with death, for RIVERS OF NIHIL, the autumn serves as a rebirth.

Where Owls Know My Nam reunites RIVERS OF NIHIL with Monarchy producer Carson Slovak (August Burns Red, The Last Ten Seconds Of Life) and Dan Seagrave, the storied artist behind such celebrated album covers as Entombed’s Left Hand Path and Suffocation‘s Effigy Of The Forgotten. Where Owls Know My Name is often just as punishing as its predecessors while assimilating ingredients from musical genres as varied as electronica, jazz, alternative, folk, and the golden age of Shrapnel Records. The resulting music is indescribably progressive, a multifaceted soundscape that goes beyond the wildest dreams of even the group’s most ardent admirers.

For a first preview of Where Owls Know My Name, “The Silent Life” can be heard at: metalblade.com/riversofnihil where the record can also be preordered in various formats.

BLOOD OF THE WOLF is a blackened death metal band from Chicago, Illinois.

In 2018, BLOOD OF THE WOLF will release their second full-length album, II: Campaign of Extermination. Fans can expect the same level of barbaric ferocity, decisive, melodic passages and violent drumming.

EXHUMED – Gore Metal Merchants Announce US West Coast Tour With INCANTATION; 70000 Tons Of Metal Cruise Nears

Exhumed - Incantation - 2018 Tour promo flyer - #4333ILMGOSGT8833

The Gore Metal merchants in EXHUMED will terrorize the West Coast next month alongside Death Metal veterans/labelmates Incantation. The tour commences February 22nd in Fresno, California and tramples its way through seven cities ending on March 3rd in Oakland, California. Direct support will be provided by Phobia. The journey follows the band’s appearance at the 2018 edition of 70000 Tons Of Metal alongside Cannibal Corpse, Enslaved, Goatwhore, and many others and comes in advance of their previously announced Grind Over Europe II Tour with Rotten Sound and Implore.

EXHUMED will be touring in support of their Death Revenge full-length, recently released via Relapse Records. Issues frontman Matt Harvey, “Our tireless efforts to worm our way into your ear-holes continues! We didn’t get to hit all the cities we wanted to since the release of Death Revenge, so we asked our buds in Incantation and Phobia to come out and rage with us on the West Coast. This tour will be short, fast, and extremely fucking loud, so don’t miss it. This is a call to all Death Metal maniacs, grind freaks, and nutty friends – don’t fucking pose – DECOMPOSE!”

Death Revenge sees EXHUMED tread into ambitious new territory as their first concept album; a thirteen-part musical melodrama based on shocking true events. Death Revenge takes place in the late 1820s in Edinburgh, Scotland and tells the macabre tale of a series of brutal murders where the victims’ cadavers were sold to anatomists, amid a grisly underground trade of grave-robbery. Recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Goatwhore, Gruesome), Death Revenge takes the band’s signature gore-drenched, Death Metal mayhem to theatrical and ghastly new depths.

A full collection of EXHUMED music videos and audio is available at THIS LOCATION.

BEHEADED “Beast Incarnate” – A Metal Odyssey Album Review

Posted in Heavy Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on January 3, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Beheaded - Beast Incarnate - promo album cover pic - 2017 - #33MO99ILMOC

Metal Fists 5 Metal Odyssey

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

BEHEADED are a Death Metal band from Malta and their 2017 studio album released via Unique Leader Records, Beast Incarnate, has kicked my Metal loving ass severely. BEHEADED can also be labeled as a Melodic Death Metal band as well; regardless, their sonic brutality is all that needs to be remembered as I give you the Metal details on Beast Incarnate. This album turned out to be one of my most favorite in a very long line of Death Metal album releases from 2017.

The opening title track, Beast Incarnate, I can easily choose to be the very best song on this album; however, this entire album is nothing short of Death Metal bliss. BEHEADED put together 8 songs that are insanely addictive if you love your Melodic Death Metal like myself. The guitar solo on Reign Of The Headless King resonates above the rhythmic blasts, a fine example of how no moment on this album is muffled, flat or low in production. The Black Death is a wonderful song that features wonderful blasphemous imagery, if you put your Metal mind to it like I do.

Punishment Of The Grave is the albums’ epic closer and showcases the brilliance that BEHEADED has musically offered to our Death Metal souls; an amazing song that highlights the bands’ guitarists and leaves me stunned. This album is a killer and as deadly as a cornered rabid sewer rat. BEHEADED have become a mainstay for my steady diet of Death Metal and I highly endorse Beast Incarnate. The vocals of Frank Calleja are incredible and this band has mucho talent from every Metal angle, in my Metal opinion. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

KROSIS – North Carolina Based Death Metal Unit Joins Unique Leader Records

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on October 29, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

KROSIS - promo band pic - 2017 - #33MO9ILMFSO337

North Carolina based Death Metal unit KROSIS is the latest addition to the Unique Leader Records roster. The band will release their forthcoming full-length in 2018.

Issues the band in a collective statement, “We are inexplicably humbled and thankful to be part of a family that some of our favorite bands have been a part of. To have Unique Leader Records see our project as something as worthwhile, original, and significant as we do means more than we can put into words. It is an understatement to say that we are looking forward to our next step as KROSIS,with Unique Leader Records at our sails.”

KROSIS was formed in Raleigh in 2014. A group of talented musicians and friends saw an unsatisfactory pattern starting within modern Metal music. The diverse collaboration of influences that make up the framework of KROSIS is why they put out the music that they do. Too much of modern Death Metal and Deathcore is limited to a paradigm; KROSIS seeks to eliminate boundaries. With backgrounds of rock, jazz, concert bands, and music theory, they pull no proverbial punches in terms of diversity, originality, and heaviness. They bring together many parts of a musical spectrum and emerge with an eclectic sound that proves appealing to lovers of heavy, themed music.

“We are all about creating new trends, fresh ideas, and even entirely unique genres,” the band notes. “Most of all, we’re proud to present every track, knowing that we gave our listeners and fans our absolute best. For some, living the dream is being in front of thousands, with lights and cameras aimed at them. For us, it’s each simple step along the way, each note and each beat, pouring our mind and soul into every creation, so that you can be a part of the experience with us.”

Stand by for further info on KROSIS in the weeks to come.
