Amon Amarth - Jomsviking - promo cover pic - 2016 - #44MO9339ILGP

AMON AMARTH will be touring in support of their recently released Jomsviking full-length. As the band’s first concept record in their storied career, Jomsviking – which was produced and mixed again by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Accept) – tells a tragic, original tale of conflict and revenge, backed by the Swedes’ trademark melodic, anthemic Metal. The record landed on the global charts – including a #11 spot on the US Current Album Billboard Chart! To purchase and preview Jomsviking, visit amonamarth.com, where the record is available in various formats and the videos for “At Dawn’s First Light” and “First Kill” can be viewed.

Denominate - Those Who Beheld The End - promo album cover pic - 2016 - #MOILMGCSO333

Finnish Technical Death Metal band Denominate signs to Inverse Records.

Denominate is a progressive Technical Death Metal band based in Oulu, Finland. Denominate draws influence from bands like Death and Carcass and blends it together with newer, more progressive and technical elements to create a progressive sound with a touch of old-school.

Denominate’s new album, “Those Who Beheld the End”, which is being released on August 5th 2016 through Inverse Records, is an album that further hones Denominate’s sound towards the progressive. “Those Who Beheld the End” has a more polished sound and experiments more with melody, while still keeping the heaviness of Denominate’s debut EP “Realms of Confusion” present.

“Those Who Beheld the End” was recorded and mixed at a private studio in Oulu. The album was recorded and mixed by Joacim U. Belius and the mastering was done in Sweden at Unisound AB by Dan Swanö.

Lyric video Degradation available below or here: https://youtu.be/LeNIB4SYlBA

Track List:

01. In A Chasm Of Stone
02. Degradation
03. Penumbra
04. The Demented Scholar of Abatos

ABNORMALITY – Concert Review – Oddbody’s Music Room, Dayton, Ohio – May 7th, 2016

ABNORMALITY are a young Death Metal band that exhibits the talent, energy and drive to go very far in our Metal world. Experiencing ABNORMALITY live has only solidified my previously positive Metal opinion about them BIG time. Originating from Massachusetts and fronted by vocalist Mallika Sundaramurthy, ABNORMALITY are signed to Metal Blade Records. I was fortunate to witness the live Death Metal fury of ABNORMALITY at Oddbody’s Music Room, in Dayton, Ohio, on May 7th, of this year.

With ABNORMALITY‘s new studio album Mechanisms of Omniscience just being released on April 29th, they are touring to support their Death Metal album achievement; supporting mega Metal monsters BATTLECROSS, SUFFOCATION and the legendary SOULFLY. This is quite an impressive supporting slot to have, considering the enormous influence that SUFFOCATION has had on the Death Metal family and the unparalleled Metal history of Max Cavalera’s SOULFLY. Whoa.

Being in the pit for any Metal show at my age now is usually not that stinking easy. I do feel the hits, slaps and random punches more than I used to, say, twenty-five years ago. Despite my being older, I am more wiser; therefore being up-front and against the stage for ABNORMALITY was a no-brainer for me! I took the numerous hits! F*ck yeah. I wanted to be a part of Death Metal history, being able to say I experienced ABNORMALITY as close as I could get! This band is that fun to see and hear up-close; combined with their Death Metal assault, grooves, vibes and obvious future potential, it’s freaking bragging rights to only see them this way and not from afar.

ABNORMALITY played to a packed house at Oddbody’s, with their battalion of fans that were unmistakably in attendance. Forget about the song list here; I was too busy taking in ABNORMALITY‘s deadly wall-of-sound, while doing my damn best to sustain the physical barrage upon my body. That’s Metal. Pure and f*%kin simple. Mallika Sundaramurthy‘s guttural vocals are eye-popping! Do not underestimate Mallika. Her stage presence is commanding, while working the fans into a Metal frenzyregardless of her petite size and seriously cute looks. Mallika’s vocals and the entire band, without a doubt, kicked my ears into Death Metal submission! Amazing.

I obviously had a blast being a part of this ABNORMALITY moment in Metal time. For thirty minutes or so I didn’t care about any other band in the world; my entire Metal soul was focused on what I was feeling and hearing from ABNORMALITY. The body hits I was taking didn’t matter; nor did my head getting dizzy spells from the entire pit encounter. This was my Metal moment with ABNORMALITY and I was going to savor every f*#kin second of it; as well I did. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

Pictured below is the psyched-out me, with Mallika Sundaramurthy. Metal be thy name, what a funtastic night!
