TOLEDO DEATHFEST Announces 2023 Lineup With OCEANO, THE CONVALESCENCE, VCTMS, INCITE And More!

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, death metal concerts, death metal festivals, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 24, 2023 by Metal Odyssey

TOLEDO DEATH FEST is ready to stir up the most extreme mosh pit to ever tornado Ohio and its surrounding states. This year’s event is being hosted on June 3rd in Toledo, OH at Mainstreet Bar and will feature headliners, OCEANO alongside The Convalescence, VCTMS, Incite, and many more (full lineup below).

Since its inception in 2009 by Keith Wampler, the frontman of The Convalescence and owner of The Legend Agency, the festival has showcased the talents of some of the American Midwest’s best up-and-coming metal bands. Past editions have seen past support from well-known artists such as Jungle Rot, Malevolent Creation, The Breathing Process, and Casket Robbery among many more. The festival has been an extreme metal pilgrimage for fans living in the surrounding states of Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and West Virginia.

I am very happy to be able to bring Toledo Deathfest back in 2023 with one of the most insane lineups we’ve ever had. This festival has come from being local bands at small venues to a two-stage festival featuring bands from around the country thanks to the incredible support of everyone who attends each year. Thank you to everyone who has supported Toledo Deathfest and I look forward to seeing everyone again on June 3rd!” adds festival organizer Keith Wampler.

Tickets are available at https://theconvalescence.bigcartel.com/(General Admission, VIP Packages)

Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1456718568446520/

OCEANO

Highlights of the confirmed bands include headliners Oceano with their blast beats, sonic double bass, slow heavy breakdowns, low death metal growls, and shrieking metalcore vocals ready to annihilate the pit with their discography since 2009.

THE CONVALESCENCE

The Convalescence is one of the USA’s unstoppable tour de force, touring Europe in 2022 with Chelsea Grin, and Carnifex plus an upcoming tour in Japan in 2023 with Exhumed and Defiled along with their latest single “No Survivors” ft. Scott Ian Lewis of Carnifex, that has fans demanding more and more.

VCTMS

A versatile metalcore group based out of Illinois, VCTMS employs an ambitious blend of punishing breakdowns, catchy melodies, and crushing riffs that draw from post-hardcore, hip-hop, industrial and alternative metal. They have released three full-length albums to date. Their third album Vol. III Halfway Happy was released on August 31, 2018, and reached #25 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart during its first week of release.

INCITE

Phoenix, AZ’s INCITE, now close to 20 years into a career where everything was earned and nothing was taken for granted, the band bridges the gap between multiple crowds across various metal sub-genres. As renegade disciples of trailblazing architects like Pantera, Slayer, Sepultura, and Machine Head, INCITE raise the torch for trend-killing and hipster-smashing metal. Incite is as much a part of the fabric of the style championed by Lamb Of God as the surge of newer bands like Power Trip. The band’s fifth album, Built to Destroy released in 2019 (Minus Head Records), is a visceral, urgent, voracious distillation of modern metal, with reverence for the past, produced by Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence) and mastered by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed).

Oceano (Chicago, IL)

GRACELESS Ink Deal With Listenable Records

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 21, 2023 by Metal Odyssey

If you are a death metal fan, GRACELESS shouldn’t need an introduction. Three full lengths and two split EPs have granted the Dutch ensemble a respectable reputation across the globe. Closer to home, the four piece has played countless live shows since their 2016 inception. The rock solid line up -unchanged since day one- has delivered ferocious, high energy live performances at Eindhoven Metal Meeting, Into the Grave, Party San Metal Open Air, Ruhrpott Metal Meeting, Stonehenge, SDF2021 and many more festivals and clubs.

Joining forces with LISTENABLE RECORDS in 2023 is the next thundering milestone for GRACELESS. Tirelessly working on their fourth full-length, the next chapter for GRACELESS will be another step deeper into the abyss that started with Shadowlands (2018), via Where Vultures Know Your Name (2020), to Chants from Purgatory (2022).

The band comments:
«The forthcoming album will add yet another layer to what some reviewers have called ‘the Graceless sound’: guiding the listener through ever darker catacombs of doomed melancholia while proudly striking a blunt death metal hammer. We are ready to descend further down. Are you coming with us?”

Listenable records will also reissue the band’s first three albums in all formats!

GRACELESS line up :
Remco Kreft: Guitar, Vocals
Marc Verhaar: Drums
Jasper Aptroot: Bass
Björn Brusse: Lead Guitar

Canada’s NOMAD Announce Fiery New Single “Burning Alive” Off Debut Album “The Mountain” Out March 2023

From British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley in Canada, Nomad has been making a name for themselves locally for the last several years, playing at local fests and supporting big-name acts in the extreme metal scene. Now they have their debut album “The Mountain” ready for consumption and their blend of progressive, groovy death metal is sure to impress existing fans and entice new listeners. Their first single “Burning Alive” was the first song they wrote together, pieced together at their very first jam. The lyrics were inspired by the heat of that day, and the careless ignition of forest fires. They added blazing riffs, smokey vocals, and smooth bass lines to round it out, making it an impressive introduction to Nomad. They share their thoughts on the album:

“We’re hoping that it fills the need for a little groove in the metal scene. We’ve spoken to many people in the audience after playing a show that say there are not enough bands like Nomad out there that like to slow it down and catch you with a good hook once in a while. We feel that many emotions and influences can be felt throughout this album and are sure to keep the listeners engaged and entertained with heavy riffs, blasting beats, and dynamic vocals.”

There have been a few lineup changes in Nomad since their inception and each one of those members has left their mark on the band’s music. They’ve always worked collaboratively, one member bringing in the skeleton of a song and it being workshopped until it meets everyone’s standard. This had led to masterful consistency, present in every groovy riff, every chunky chord, and throughout the blasting of drums.

The single “Burning Alive” can be heard via its premiere on Bravewords HERE. ​

“The Mountain” was mixed by drummer Bretton Melanson and mastered by Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy). It is recommended for fans of Gojira, Lamb of God, and Pantera.

  6. Headstone Tales

In the deepest and darkest corners of the very crypts that made death metal the powerhouse of undeath and shattered bone that it always has been, there has never been a better time to find yourself lost in its halls. Legions upon legions of new acts are constantly spawning in that madness to bring us new glory the like of which is naught but utterly gripping with bands like DEAD WILL WALK all but the perfect vessels for such chaos with albums like “A New Day of Dawning” all but works of art for the genre.

Overflowing with self-awareness, horrifying talent that’s exuded out of every minute of these six tracks, and a ferocious listen that wouldn’t stop for the very ending of the world, it’s clear that DEAD WILL WALK has put their best foot forward. This is what it means to make uncompromising death metal with such efficiency that can’t be seen as anything less than powerful with each second of this massive creation a conquest upon life itself that simply cannot be denied.

DEIQUISITOR – To Return with “Apotheosis”

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , on December 6, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

From beyond the confines of measurable knowledge comes Apotheosis; fast, brutal, and unearthly 90s-inspired death metal from Denmark’s DEIQUISITOR.

Comprised of veterans of the Danish scene, Apotheosis includes nine new songs recorded at Phlegm Studios in Lejre and mixed and mastered by Greg Wilkinson of Earhammer Productions. Continuing the band’s occult-driven cosmic journey, Apotheosis takes the DEIQUISITOR brand of death metal without losing the uncompromising fist-to-the-face approach heard on previous albums. Apotheosis dwells on occult science, ancient mysteries, and apocalyptic themes.

Extremely Rotten Productions and Night Shroud Records will release Apotheosis on CD, cassette, digital, and vinyl formats on January 20.

Tracklist:
Humanoid
Striving for Destruction
Autosarcophagy
The Eyes of Worms
Apophis
Reflected by the Void
Deiquisitor
Atomic Assassins
Praise the Lord

DEIQUISITOR:
Drums: Henrik B.C
Guitar and vocals: Thomas F.J
Bass and vocals: Daniel A

DEIQUISITOR was formed in 2013 by Henrik B.C and Thomas F.J, both of whom spent time in several Order of the Nonagram bands such as BLODFEST and WOLFSLAIR. The duo has returned to its roots in old-school death metal. Those familiar with Henrik and Thomas’ work in the Danish underground scene will recognize elements of the part appearing in their new material. DEIQUISITOR is fast-paced, aggressive, and atmospheric death metal influenced heavily by the sound and style of bands who ruled the genre in the early 90s.

NARCOTIC WASTELAND – Concert Review And Photo Gallery – From October 29, 2022 At King Of Clubs In Columbus Ohio

Dallas Toler-Wade – lead singer & guitarist (photo credit Stone/Metal Odyssey)

Dallas Toler-Wade and his Metal band NARCOTIC WASTELAND invaded Columbus Ohio on October 29th, opening for the powerhouse ACCEPT. Over 500 (announced) die-hard Metal maniacs assembled at The King Of Clubs on this evening, well prepared for the Metal onslaught that was to be unleashed. I was eagerly one of them. I was not denied… NARCOTIC WASTELAND pummeled my Metal senses into submission. Yes they did.

Between Columbus, Dayton and Cincinnati Ohio, there are TONS of music clubs and venues. With that said, I’ve never been to The King Of Clubs before this night. I’ll say this venue is very spacious, with a full bar, an upstairs dining area, outdoor sitting area and a large stage. I was impressed by The King Of Clubs and their entire staff. A first-class music venue.

Here’s a 57 second snippet (below) of NARCOTIC WASTELAND live that night. Enjoy.

Video credit: Stone/Metal Odyssey

Dallas Toler-Wade is a Metal warrior, having been an 18 year member of the brutally legendary NILE. He commanded the stage with a formidable presence and (obviously) appeared to be having a tremendous time singing and playing at every second. The crowd and band fed off each other and that’s what ignited the energy level to high. No doubt in my mind, NARCOTIC WASTELAND performed like a headliner on this night.

As a live band, NARCOTIC WASTELAND plays like a cohesive Metal unit and delivers a skull numbing Death Metal attack. I’ve seen many live shows; yet I haven’t been this impressed and had this much fun since I saw CRYPTOPSY some years back.

With new singles released (“Morality and the Wasp” and “The Best Times Have Passed”) prior to this show, NARCOTIC WASTELAND also have 2 previously released studio albums to draw material from. Their blend of Death meets Thrash with threads of Trad Metal blends flawlessly together. I applaud each band member for giving it ALL at King Of Clubs that night and look forward to seeing them live again on their next tour.

Metal be thy name – Stone

CULTØ – Italian Melodic Death Metallers Launch “Frost” Lyric Video, Debut Album “Of The Sun” Out Now

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Heavy Metal, melodic death metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, music videos, news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 12, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Italian melodic death metallers CULTØ have launched their new lyric video of “Frost”. The song is featured on the band’s debut album, “Of the Sun”, out now via Time To Kill Records. Watch the clip HERE or below:

CULTØ was born from an idea of mastermind Dave, who, in a very short time span, nmanaged to put together a line-up made up of well-known musicians from the Lombardy underground scene (Ghostheart Nebula, Vide, Perfidious, etc.) and record an album of nine songs.

The style of “Of The Sun” comes straight from the Gothenburg sound of the 90s (In Flames, Dark Tranquility, etc.) opening on to more aggressive musical tones. The album is not only a personal interpretation of this music style, but revolves around a message on the awakening of generative consciousness and on the power of artistic expression.

The concept of the lyrics is focused on the awareness of the artist and his creative abilities, through the metaphor of a star that, following a flare, becomes a creator and destroyer god in search of himself and his kind.

Line-up:

Dave – Vocals
Panta – Drums
Ema – Guitars
BT – Bass
John Pino Lisi – Guitars

CULTØ combine a number of genres and influences, ranging from In Flames to Bloodbath and Septicflesh, filtered through a prism of metallic extremity. The result is fierce melodic death metal, mixing the best of old and new school into their own sound.

Tracklist:

1. Flare
2. Experiment 1
3. Excrete
4. Frost
5. The Desert Of Shadows
6. Void
7. The Ashes Of Annihilation
8. Darkness Leads To Light
9. Fire From Inside
