Swedish Death Metal Unit DECOMPOSED have announced the forthcoming release of Wither, the band’s third full-length album. Wither will be released October 3 on Mexico’s Chaos Records.  New songs “By Nothingness Crowned” and “Submerged” are streaming at the following link https://chaos-records.bandcamp.com/album/wither and below:

Wither is uncompromising, riff-driven Swedish Death Metal that proudly follows in the giant footsteps of genre leaders DISMEMBER, ENTOMBED, and the like.  Wither was recorded in mid-2015 by composer/founder Jesper Ekstål along with drummer Emil Leijon in Studio Blastbeat in Sundsvall, the same studio in which the previous albums were recorded. The album will be available on CD and vinyl formats.

BAND BIO:
Sweden’s DECOMPOSED grew into a band in 2010, shortly after being conceived as a pure one-man Death Metal project. A year later the Stench of Death demo was recorded, which led to the self-titled debut album the following year. Two years thereafter the follow-up, entitled Devouring was released, a much more mature creation focused on darkness, horror and madness.

After a few live performances and quite a few internal struggles, DECOMPOSED had to cease to exist as a live band. All members left, and only composer/founder Jesper Ekstål remained. The work on the third chapter Wither was well under way during this period, and it continued during obstacles of every kind.

Banisher - promo band pic - 2016 - #MOILMNSMSO333

Critically acclaimed Polish Death Metal band BANISHER have revealed a lyric video for “The Iconoclast” a new track from their forthcoming album Oniric Delusions. The track is a four and a half-minute rager of old-school Death Metal.

Listen to The Iconoclast” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60xeZXtMaoo or below:

Oniric Delusions will be released by Deformeathing Productions on September 3 2016.

Banisher - Oniric Delusions - promo album cover pic - 2016 - #MO999ILMGSMSOC033

Starting with their Sorrow of Death demo back from 2005 , Banisher was originally founded in Rzeszów, Poland by Hubert Więcek and Michał Such. With every release, the band have set abundantly clear markers of progression and maturity to reach the present Extreme Death Metal powerhouse they’ve become.

Including members from such bands as Decapitated, Redemptor, Darzamat, Nuclear Vomit, Shodan and Ketha, the new opus was recorded by Więcek (guitars, bass), Szczepan Inglot (vox), and Jacek Gut (drums). Michał Bartosik was added as their new permanent bassist at the very start of 2016. Since their previous release (‘Scarcity’), the band has seen a significantly marked growth both in style and production and especially the dexterity of guitarist Więcek. It should be noted that Więcek has the honor of being endorsed by Ibanez Guitars since 2014 as well.

The band has already extensively toured the greater part of Europe and appeared at several festivals such as Inferno Metal Festival, Eastern Deathfest, Flesh Party Open Air, Cieszanów Rock Festival, and Metal Head’s Mission among others; they have also headlined Metal Blast in Cairo, Egypt. No doubt they will be looking to unleash their new material to all on tour soon well into 2016.

Coming in at just over 30 mins. ‘Oneiric Delusions’ was recorded, mixed and mastered at Invent-Sound Studio in Bydgoszcz, Poland by Szymon Grodzki. The album will be released on CD complemented with a comprehensive 16 page booklet and a lacquered sticker of the album cover artwork of the album supplied by Pete “Astmol” Zając.

WHITECHAPEL recently completed an extensive run across the US on the annual Vans Warped Tour, touring in support of their sixth full-length, Mark Of The Blade. Hailed as, “an exciting milestone,” by Alternative Press, Mark Of The Blade was produced by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Cannibal Corpse) and sees WHITECHAPEL redefine who they are and what they are capable of with the resulting eleven tracks.

Kicking off with “The Void” – which has a Slayer-esque ferocity that is perfectly suited to the band’s three-guitar attack – the songs that follow all leave a distinct impression, and by the time the rich, dark melodies on “Decennium” bring the record to a close, it’s impossible to deny the emotional weight brought to bear. Guitarist Alex Wade explains, “At this point in our career and as we grow older, we are taking a more open-minded approach to creating our music, allowing what we think sounds good to evolve naturally, rather than to just write what is expected of us.”

To purchase Mark Of The Blade in various formats, visit: metalblade.com/whitechapel, where the video for the latest single, “Elitist Ones,” can also be viewed.
